WEDNESDAY, JULY a, ALTON EVENING TELEGRAPH Greatest Game Ever Seen By Al Dark SAN FRANCISCO (AP) - "I said to myself throe limes, 'This will be my last inning'," weary Jiinn Marlchnl snld quietly. "Each time I went out there agnln. "When Willie fMiiya) was In (he circle waiting to bat, I called to him 'Hit one now.' Everyone Inughed at me, but Willie did it." It \vns the IGlh Inning in Candle- slick Park where Markihal and Milwaukee's Warren Spalm had dueled 4 hours and 10 minutes of scoreless baseball. Spnlin threw a snowball, the pilch thnt got him out of trouble so many times. Mays boiled a home run over the Ictt field fence, deciding the issue 1-0 for the Giants. Exactly 30 years after Cnrl Hubbell on July 2, 19.13, had blanked St. Louis 1-0 in 18 Innings, Mnrlchnl had his 13lh victory of the season in n game with almost as many shutout innings. "That Was the greatest game I've ever seen by two pitchers," Giants Manager Alvin Dark said. Mnrlcluil throw 227 pitches, the 42-year-old Spahn 201. Both admitted being a lit Ho tired, but both were going all out all the wny. Mays and the Candlestick wine both could be credited with assists in the pitching shutout. In ho fourth inning, the Braves Innk Aaron powered n drive to eft field, ticketed for ills 23rd lomcr of I he yenr, hut the wind leld II bnck. By midnight, how ever, the wind had virtually died. "The wind helped me against right-hnnrif'ra, but you have to be so very careful with the Icft- mnders when the wind is blowing lore," the 25-year-old Marlchal in Id. "I was throwing n lot of fnsl bolls and changes out there." On June 14, the right-hnndei from the Dominican Republic who originally signed Into the organization for just $500, became the first Gianl to throw n no-hittei since Hubbell did In 1929. Juan blanked Houston 1-0 that day. Winning the marathon left the Giants just, one game behind the National League-leading Los An gelos Dodgers. Spnhn, who beat lx)s Angele 1-0 last Friday and had a string of 27 scoreless Innings, said: "I threw Mays a screwball tha hung. It didn't do a thing. Tin thing that makes me mad is tha I had thrown some good screw hulls to Harvey Kuenn just be fore Willie came to bat. Then tha n'rsl pilch to him hung." Mays' first hit in the majo league back in 1.951 was a horn run off Spahn. ami with Harold Brand Delayed Lunch There isn't anything like a quick lunch aboard ship even if it is about three or four hours late. Five couples planned to spend un evening aboard the houseboat Pamela on Alton Lake last week and enjoy especially prepared hamburgers cooked by the proud chef Hob Henderson, Hazel Drive. Everyone was on time including Henderson's wife; Mr.<nnd Mrs. L. K, (Hud) Arnold, Oakwood Avenue; Mr. and Mrs. Earl (I)ink) Hair, Virginia Avenue; Mr. and Mrs. Harry Dewey, Washington Avenue; and the owners of the houseboat, Mr. and Mrs. Earl Wiglttmnn, Alby Street. The group set sail from Clifton Tcrace and went across he lake where the houseboat was anchored and the barbecue grill was started. When the charcoal was r e a d y, it was discovered that Henderson had forgotten his famous hamburgers. It was about 6:30 p.m. and everyone was starved, our secret agent informed us. The group had to return to Clifton Marina and Arnold escorted Henderson home to make sure he wouldn't forget the main entry the second time. It was about 10 p.m. before the group ate their evening meal. Wouldn't you say that Henderson is a grade A nominee to the Boners Club? Best Decorated Boats Flotilla 8 of Lake Village Yacht Club scored all the honors in the most decorated boats during he marine parade Sunday afternoon prior to the annual Blessing of the Fleet on Alton Lake. Eurl Bafferty's houseboat "Rafferty's"; Ruy Humplirye's cruiser "The Ginnoy Roe" and William Holm's runabout "skootie" won top honors for the best decorated craft in each class. Miss Safe Boating Queen, Miss Carolyn Glesinan of Flottilla 11 at Rivera Harbor and her court ^ of seven other queens of area Flotillas rode in three lead boats in the parade. In addition to the estimated up to 400 craft that passed the Shrine, for the first time other pleasure craft, totalling about 100 in number, were permitted to anchor offsore from the 650-foot Shrine causeway to watch the ceremonies. Several hundred other spectators watched from shore. At one time during the boat parade, there was a scramble among a few cruiser skippers to get into the lead which for a short time virtually changed the parade into a race. The consequences were some mighty turbulent waters caused by the wakes which gave smaller cralt quite a bouncing. We were unable to find out who won that skirmish. Ilttwnlaii Party Thursday The Anchor Yankers Boat Club Smokeless Twins MINNEAPOLIS-ST. PAUL (AP) —The Minnesota Twins face the prospect of a dry and smokeless Metropolitan Stadium because the Bloomlngton City Council has refused to renew the ball park's beer, cigarette and bottle club licenses. _ SERIOUSLY HURT Brian Sternberg, above, whose Iti-foot, 8-inch pole vault is pending as a world record, is partially paralyzed with a back injury suffered yesterday while working out on a trampoline with the University of Washington gymnastics team.—(AP Wirephoto) Sternberg Paralyzed After Trampoline Spill Cubs Going With Vets In Drive for Pennant CHICAGO (AP)—For n change, National League baseball fans will lave to look away from the Chi•ago Cubs for a rookie of the year. The Cubs have supplied the engue with the top rookie the last wo seasons and narrowly missed n getting their players to win the award in several seasons before Ihat. The big reason was that the :ubs weren't going anywhere and herefore gambled with any youngster who appeared to have i chance to make the major leagues. Last year, second baseman Ken Hubbs won the award. The yeai going against right-hander Jay Hook (3-8). The Chicago White Sox, hold to me hit by New York's Al Downing, dropped a 3-fl decision t< the Yankees and fell into third piace in the American League race. Camilo Carreon's single into center field in the seven'n inning prevented a no-hitter. Ray Herbert (8-5) was the loser. Minnesota defeated Detroit, 7-4, and the Twins climbed past the Sox into second place.

Now the Cubs fancy themselves as a team which not only has a chance to finish in the first division, something they haven't done since 1946, but also a team with a chance to win the pennant. Because of this, the Cubs have not been able to develop untried players this season and will not have a player challenging for rookie honors. has scheduled a Hawaiian Lua on a sandy beach Thursday mile 225 on Alton Lake. Member plan to wear Hawaiian costumes RcoUToot Laks Trip Mr. and Mrs. Ed Tlmllman, 286 N. Central Ave., Wood River, recently enjoyed a three-day fishing trip at Hutchcraft Motel and Cabins, Hornbeak, Tenn., on Reel- foot Lake. Mrs. Thallman said that she caught some of the biggest bluegill and crappie that she had ever seen. In addition the couple also caught many perch, and striped bass. Norfork Lake The Lake Norfork Newsletter reports that Fred Plcssa, Roxana, recently scored a four-pound, four- ounce bass using a red worm tor bait. The lake is about 1% feet under normal and the water is SEATTLE, Wash. (AP)—Brian Sternberg, who has vaulted higher than any other athlete in the world, lay partially paralyzed in a hospital today following an accident incurred svhile he worked out on a trampoline. Sternberg, whose 16-foot, 8-inch ault is pending as a world rec- rd, was hurt Tuesday evening as e practiced with the University f Washington gymnastics team, le was rated as one of the coun- i-y's top trampoline performers. Doctors said X rays indicated a dislocation of the cervicle ver- ebra and possible damage to the pinal cord. They described the njury as critical, but after sev- hours of consultation ruled out immediate surgery. Doctors would not say Sternberg's neck was broken, but did not discount the possibility of a fracture in the intricate series of bones involved. He was placed in clear. The White and Norfork Rivers below Norfork Dam are cleai and also in excellent condition foi fishing. Chemical Warfare Much has been said against chemicals in pesticides and herbicides recently yet chemicals have reduced the sea' lamprey population up to 80 per cent in parts of Lake Superior that were treated, reported he University of Michigan. The lamprey had had virtually ruined the lake trout fishing, a multi-million dol lar Great Lakes fishing industry before the war. The lamprey, an eel-like fish parasite equipped with a sucke mouth, fastens onto trout feeding until the trout dies. In addition < destroying the lamprey, plans an underway to stock Lake Superio with 1.9 million halchery-b red (rout in 1963. A few lamprey have been taken in nets and at water intake pip screens in the Mississippi Rive in recent years. We hope the para site doesn't become too strong ir our local fishing waters. ;raction. A modest, personable blond, Double Winners At Speedivay GODFREY — Art Pauley of South Roxana and Bud Pursley of St. Louis were double winners Tuesday night at the Godfrey Speedway. Pauley won both the six- lap handicap race and the third heat race, while Pursley won both the second and fourth heats. Charley Booten of Wood River copped the first heat and Bill Pouter- baugh took the feature event, a 25-lapper. Three turnovers and two fence-crashing affairs added excitement to the night's affairs. Daredevil Jimmy Deene was an added attraction. Deene, an expert stuntman, placed himself in a box-like structure and detonated the enclosure with two sticks of 40-per cent dynamite. Steinberg set the pending world record at the Compton Invitational Meet June 7. He first conquered the 16-foot barrier at Milwaukee last March when he soared 16-3M: He cleared 16-5 in April and 16-' two weeks b e f o r e^his recorc mark. Only a sophomore this past season, Sternberg never was de feated. Sternberg was to have compet ed for the United States in the Soviet Union later this month. The Seattle star, who jus 1 turned 20, rarely practiced pol< vaulting, but kept in shape work ing out on the trampoline.

Despite his loss, Cooper, th British and Empire heavyweigh champion, was boosted in "This doesn't moan we don't have a top candidate," said head coach Bob Kennedy after his Cubs had dumped the Now York Mets 4-1 Tuesday. "But we're going ood and can't gamble with any ookies. "Our top candidate would be elson Matthews," Kennedy add- d. "He is one of the best fundamental players in the league. He ever misses a sign, runs the ases well and is an exception- lly good fielder." However, Kennedy seems ready o complete the season with an ulfield of Billy Williams, Ellis heavyweight ratings from eightl to seventh. Clay remained the No 2 contender behind former heavj weight champion Floyd Patte son. McKJiiley Wins, Plays For Crown WIMBLEDON. England (API- Chuck McKinley of SI.

The 19-year-old tomboy from Long Beach, Calif., meets British Wightman Cup star Mrs. Ann Haydon Jones in the semifinals Thursday lurton and Lou Brock. This doesn't leave any room or Mathews, who has failed to lit in big Jeague fashion and has a .159 average. "One thing I don't want to see happen," said Kennedy, "is to have Mathews feel like a lost sheep. I know from the days I played that it was no fun to sit on the bench and never get called on. We work with him every day and try to make him fe°l he is part of the club. He'll be a great jlayer someday." The Cubs scored all four runs n the first two innings Tuesday and saw Bob Buhl halt the New York Mets on six hits. Ernie Banks doubled home a run in the first inning and the Cubs wrapped it up with three unearned runs in the second as Brock, Burton and Williams drove home the scores. Buhl, scoring his seventh victory against five defeats, yielded three singles in the fourth inning for New York's only run and blanked the Mets the rest of the way on two hits. The two teams meet again today with Dick Ellsworth (10-6) "And I guess this is the most important match of my life," Billie Jean said. "Ann and I are all square. I beat her in the Wightman Cup in Chicago in 1961. She knocked me out of Wimbledon last year. I guess it's my turn to win again." " To reach the semifinals. Billie Jean had to knock out two favorites for the Wimbledon crown — Lesley Turner of Australia, seeded No. 2, and former champion Maria Bueno of Brazil, seeded No. 7.

"Hr can't miss," said Yankee afcher Elston Howard. "That boy overpowering." The object of the fancy ndjec- ves was Al Downing, 22-year-old 'ankee left - bander who limited Chicago to one hit in a 3-0 shutout f the White Sox Tuesday night and increased the Yanks' Amerian League lead to three full ames. He had a no-hitter going until Camilo Carrfion singled up the middle with two out in the seventh nning. Downing got the tip of his glove an it but the ball had enough jounce to gel past shortstop Tony <ubek and spin into the outfield. "He hit it good but I should lave had it," said Downing. "Naturally, I would have liked o get the no-hitter," he said, "But don't feel badly about it. This vill only make me work harder n the hope tbat I can get it mother time." Downing's performance drew praise from Howard, who called ?very pitch for the 22-year-old left-hander. He said: 'That boy is overpowering. There are not many faster pitch arm Is ns Rood as that of anybody on the dub." It was the third victory In four decisions for Downing who Was called up from Richmond a month ago. Houk compared him with left- handed ace Sandy Koufax ot the Los Angeles Dodgers. "Remember, Downing has hnd only two years of professional experience," Houk said. "Koufax didn't make it big until his fifth year." 25 Vessels In Yacht Race MUSKEGON. Mich.
