TWELVE ALTON EVENING FRIDAY, AOGtLiST 2,1963 VanderKelen May Get Nod Tonight '..-:'• ' i^J < ^^fc^jpr FergusonGetj Shot at One Halfback CHICAGO (AP) — The Green Bay Packers, proud Naliotia Football League champions tb last two years, and the All-Stars chesty collegiate greats of las season,. clash tonight in the 30th annual midsummer football class ic at Soldier Field. The collegians haven't bcatet the pros since 1958, when the Detroit Lions Were spilled 35-19 in Otto Graham's debut as head All Star coach. The Packers whipped Graham's group 42-20 last year with a three- touchdown spurt in the last quar ter and Bart Starr's record five scoring passes. Green Bay rules a WVfc-point fa vorite to repeat, padding the pros winning edge to 20-8 in the rivalry sponsored by the Chicago Tribune Charities Inc. Two games have ended in ties. The kickoff, before an expected crowd of some 65,000, is 9 p.m Est with radio and television start ing 15 minutes earlier via ABC Temperature around 80 degree is forecast with thundershowers likely. Football fans undoubtedly svil see an aerial bombardment by the All-Stars, whose quarterbacks in dude Terry Baker of Oregon State; Ron VanderKelen, Wiscon sin; Sonny Gibbs, Texas Christian and Glynn Griffing, Mississippi. Although Graham has been non committal, VanderKelen, a left- handed passer like Baker, may be used the most. He came up unheralded as a Wisconsin senior last fall to steer the Badgers to the Big Ten title and set Rose Bowl records of 33 pass completions, 401 yards gained in the air and 406 total yards. Wisconsin lost to Southern California, however, 42-37. VanderKelen's big target was end Pat Richter, who .heads the All-Star receivers along with Paul Flatley of Northwestern, Kentucky's Tom Hutchinson, Washington State's Hugh -Campbell, Jackson State's Willie Richardson and three of the fastest halfbacks ever on the All-Star squad—Bob Paremore, Florida A&M; Charlie Mitchell, Washington, and Larry Ferguson, Iowa. Speed, power, hefty defensemen rangy secondary, pass protection strength—all seem to be at Gra ham's command. But putting them together in a cohesive unit in the short time of three weeks is what makes the head coaching job tough. The Packers will be without the services of their middle line- backing star, Ray Nitschke, who has a twisted back, and scoring champion Paul Hornung, suspended for at least a year for gambling. All-pro fullback Jim Taylor may see only limited duty with a knee injury. CHICAGO (AP)—Probable starting offensive lineups for tonight's Green Bay-All Star football game.

(AP lights of Soldier Field. End Gary Wirephoto) AuroraDowiis Sale Hits Sudden Snag CHICAGO (AP) — The bank- •uptcy sale of the inoperative Aurora Downs race track for $1.2 ms met with objections from four creditors. They objected in a hearing Thursday before Judge Michael Igoe, who set Aug. 7 for urther hearing. Edward Kelly, attorney for portservice, Inc., refreshment oncessionaires, one of the object- ng creditors, said the sale of the rack to Titus Haffa, a Chicago ndustrialist, would wipe out the reditors' interests. He said no appraisal of the roperty was used in establishing e price. Sportservive claims ?50,000 lia- ility. Other creditors objecting re: Orville P. Fox, original wrier of the track; Charles P. McFarland, claiming $1,600 liability, and J.C. Granata, a stock- claiming $50,000 liability. The creditors contend that pubic .sale of the 12%-acre track vould increase the settlement of cents on the dollar for their laims. Kelly also said 23 acres of front- ge along Illinois'31 near Aurora s worth $400,000 and a lease for ther property incorporated into he track is worth $450,000. Legislation allowing winter acing dates in counties of less lan a million population has been assed and, if signed by Gov. tto Kerner, will increase the alue of the track, Kelly said. A Joliet bankruptcy referee, F. Donald Delaney, approved July 17 plan for partial liquidation of more than $2 million in liabilities f the Northern Illinois Development Corp., which owns the har- ess racing track. Wayland Cedarquist, attorney or the corporation, said the ma- ority of unsecured creditors voted o accept the terms. He said 67 ecured creditors would receive pward of 50 per cent on their ilaims as a result of the sale. Cedarquist said he fears that Haffa, owner of Webcor, Inc., nay withdraw his offer, although he said the industrialist upped the ffer by $50,000 May 30.

Joey Jay Certainly Having His Worries By MIKE BATIIET Associated Press Sports Writer What's with Joey Jay, Cincinnati's two-time 20-game winner who last year couldn't buy himself, and this year can't find himself? That's the problem plaguing Reds' officials, who were astounded last year when Jay made an unprecedented move to buy his own contract, and are confounded this year by Jay's inability to produce for Cincinnati's National League pennant hopefuls. The right-hander, 27, absorbed another setback Thursday, logging loss No. 15 to go wilh only four victories as the fifth-place Reds dropped a 3-2 decision to St. Louis and fell 8V 2 games behind first-place Los Angeles. The victory moved the Cardinals into a tie for second place with San Francisco, 4% games back of the Dodgers. Only one other NL game was scheduled. The fourth-place Chicago Cubs clobbered Milwaukee 10-2 as Ellis Burton became the fifth player in NL history to hit iome runs batting right-and lefl- landed in the same game. The only American League game scheduled—Boston at Balti- nore—was rained out. Jay became a 20-game winner for the first time in 1961, posting 21-10 record as the Reds stunned the baseball world by grabbing the NL pennant. Jay :urned around and stunned the baseball world by himself in spring training the next season Locked in a salary dispute with Reds' General Manager Bill DeWitt, Jay admitted, "I have asked him to sell me my contract. I am willing to pay him my next five years' salary based on what he's offering so that I can become a free agent." The offer, amounting to about $125,000, was turned down. So was Jay's subsequent .bid as he raised the ante to $200,000. He finally settled the salary squabble, went to work and compiled a 21-14 record. Jay wasn't tagged hard by the Cardinals, but George Altman connected for a fifth-inning home run that snapped a 1-1 tie and St. Louis pushed across the clincher in the eighth after Jay left on a walk, a pinch single by Charlie James and Tim McCarver's sac- Altman, Simmons Arthur D * r» Ji Ftet Negro Beat Redlegs, ST. LOUIS (AP)—The St. Louis Cardinals triumphed 3-2 over the Cincinnati Reds Thursday night, and moved into a second place tie with San Francisco. The Cards and the Giants are ^ games tehind Los Angeles. A fifth-inning home run by George Altman decided a pitching duel and gave Curt Simmons his tenth victory of the season— with relief help In the ninth from Ron Taylor and Bobby Shantz. Joey Jay, now 4 and 15, was the loser. Thursday night's homer was the third in 10 clays for the for- American Athletes Pulverize Germans By JIM BBCKEB IIANOVER, Germany ( The American track and field squad, off to a disappointing start in Moscow two weeks ago, is honed to a fine edge now after meets with Poland and Germany. It showed that in the two-dny dual battle with a young West German team which ended here Thursday night, winning by 141 to 82, about as lopsided as these international meets can get. Over the two days, the Americans won 18 of the 21 events, and 10 of 11 on the final' day. They scored one-two sweeps in two events, and won both relays. Four of their performances Thursday were better than the winning marks in the Moscow meet which the Americans won by only 119 to 114, the narrowest margin in the five meetings. The next anticipated victim Is the British team, in London Saturday and Monday. The team dies to London today. That meet will wind up the tour. Thursday, j flex Cawloy's 504 seconds in the 400-meter hurdles, Bob Hayes' 20.6 In the 200 meters, Frank Covelli's javelin throw of 264 feet, QVs inches and the Amer Scans' 1,600-meter relay team's 3:02.8 all were better than the Moscow marks. For the second straight day, the Americans got an incredible anchor leg on the relay, Thursday it was Henry Carr's 44.3, the fastest 400-meter relay leg ever run. The other American victories Thursday were in the high jump, Paul Stuber, 6 feet, 7 inches; steeple chase, Pat Traynor, 8:44,4; shot put, Dave Davis, 58 feet, 8'/a inches; triple jump, Ralph Boston, 52 foet, 2'4 inches; 1,500 meters, Morgan Groth, 3:42. and 10,000-meter walk, Ronald Zinn, 46:50.8. rifice fly. Curt Simmons, 10-5, was the winner, but needed ninth-inning relief help from Ron Taylor and Bobby Shanlz. The switch-hitting Burton connected against Braves' left-hander Denny Lemaster, 7-6, in the first inning and right-hander Ron Piche in the seventh. The feat has been accomplished 16 times in the majors — with Mickey Mantle of the New York Yankees doing it nine times. Steve Boros and Jim Schaffer also homered for Chicago while Larry Jackson, 12-9, scattered seven hits in going all the way. Burton Blasts Two Homers, Cubs Win CHICAGO (AP)— Ellis Burton, a Milwaukee farmhand last year at Toronto and Louisville, hammered two of the Chicago Cubs' four homers as they bombed the Braves, 10-2, Thursday night. Burton became the fifth player in National League history to hit homers batting right and left- handed in the same game. Burton hit his first off lefty Denny LeMaster in the first inning and his second off righthander Ron Piche in the seventh. Steve Bpros and Jim Schaffer also homered for the Cubs, who piled up six runs in the first to cushion Larry Jackson, who scattered eight hits for his 12th victory. In addition to Burton's first homer, the big first inning included two walks, doubles by Ken Hubbs and Jackson, and singles by Billy Williams, Schaffer and Andre Rodgers. It launched a 12- liit attack for the Cubs. The Cubs open a weekend home series today against the second- place San Francisco Giants with Dick Ellsworth (15-7) tangling with Jack Sanford (10-11). The White Sox, idle Thursday, open a three-game ,. stand in Los Angeles tonight with Gary Peters (10-5) going against the Angels' Dean Chance (10-10). Since they hit the road, the second-place Sox have won 7 of 11. games but have failed to gain on the New York Yankees, who lead the American League by 8 games. t MINOR LEAGUES By THE ASSOCIATED PRESS International League Buffalo 6, Indianapolis 5 Atlanta 6, Rochester 4 Toronto 8, Arkansas 2 Columbus at Richmond, rain Syracuse at Jacksonville, rain JUNIOR BASEBALL In the eight-year-old league Thursday tho Dodgers edged the Tigers, 2-1, the Mustangs tripped the Warriors, 5-3, Northside walloped the Pirates, 17-6, and the Giants whipped Ihe Seals,' 13-4. Jim Yost fanned 13 and Bruce Baggio tripled for the Dodgers while Dan Wickenhauser struck out 12 and Les Gibson tripled and singled for the Tigers. Winning pitcher Mark Case homered for the Mustangs. Bob Sisk got the win for Northside along with a homer and single while Jeff Albers also homered. Churck Wells tripled and doubled for the Pirates. Tom Morrissey homered for the Giants. James Weiss had two hits and Bob Naughton a double and single for the Seals. In tho 13-14-year-old league the Seals nipped the Yankees, 24, and the Braves topped the Dodgers, 9-8. Larry Franklin was the winning pitcher for the Seals and walloped a triple and two singles. Jim Yungck doubled and Danny Jouett lashed two singles for the Yanks. Jreg King and Bucky Plopper homered for the Braves while !ary Fisher and Bob Brown slammed round-trippers for the Dodgers. ner Chicago Cubs slugger, aiid gave the Curds hope thai Altman nay be breaking out of a long- jail slump. Sacrifice tiles by BUI White and Tim McCarver gave the Cai'dl- lals two of their runs. Altman's shot lo the right field lavilion roof with none on broke 1-1 tic in the fifth. It was only ils seventh of the season, a far cry from the 27 he hit in 1961 and the 22 last season with the Cubs. Those two stalistics, and his 303 and .318 baiting averages and total of 121 extra base hits md 170 RBI for those two seasons prompted the Cardinals to ;ive up Larry Jackson and Lindy VlcDaniel last winter in a multi- layer trade. Bui Altman hit only four homers, eight doubles and six triples ho first three months of the season. His average is only .274, aft- ir Thursday's homer and two singles—his best day at the,bat in ive weeks. Altman has been platooned and Benched part of the time, "but it msn't been bad because the club ms been winning and I've been giving my best when I'm play- ng." Bui now he feels he's coming around. "It's been a long time since I've felt this loose at the plate," said the free-swinging lefthanded outfielder. "I think I had a mental block with my vision," Altman said. "I came to spring training with ilurred vision after studying all vinter for the brokerage business." He tried wearing glasses after lie season began, but they did lot help. He gave them up a few veeks ago and "I've been hitting he ball better since I got them off my mind." The Cardinals open a weekend series with Philadelphia tonight. Ray Sadecki (6-7) of the Cardinals will face Dennis Bennett 3-0) in the first game. TRAP SHOOT Friday — 7:30 P.M.

Listen May Have a Way Out for Bout PHILADELPHIA (AP) —The Pennsylvania Athletic Commission which earlier turned down heavy weight champion Sonny Liston's corporation as promoters for his proposed fight with Cassius Clay says it may have found a way for the fight to be held here nex fall. The plan must be approved by .he champion, however. It woulc involve him stepping out of the promoter's role. Listen, believed traveling from Jefferson City, Mo., for an exhibition at the state penitentiary, couk not be reached for comment. However Alfred M. Klein, a member of the Pennsylvania Athletic Commission, said Thursday "I'm confident the fight will be held here." On .Wednesday the commission refused to grant a promoter's li cense to Intercontinental Promotions Inc., Liston's firm. He owns 47 J /£ .per cent of it. Brothers Bob and Jim Nilon also own 47^ per cent. Garland D. Cherry, the firm's lawyer, owns the othei five per ^cent. The commission acted upon thi advice of the attorney general' office which said Pennsylvania law forbids a fighter to promoti his own bouts. Klein said at a news conference Thursday the commission woulc be willing to license a firm ti the Nilon brothers, a Chester, Pa. concessionnaire family, "as a co partnership or if they wish, to gether, to form a corporation."
