ALTON EVENING SAfURBAY, AUGUST'S, 1963 Leads Stars to 20-17 Upset GdUegimis' Packer Game fly, CMAfctES CHAMBERLAIN (AP) « The Colieg , Irt aw amazing 2047 up m» victory, have proved th mighty ..Gfeen Bay Packers cat fcf had. their demonstration before 65, 000 fans in Soldier ft eld and national f, television audience Fri day night should throw the 196 National Football League race into a more unpredictable . tizzy than ever. The Green Bay dynasty, buil on two successive NFL champion ships, may be showing a crack At, least the All-Stars, beating 'thi pros for the first time since 195: and only the ninth time in the 30-year history of the series, havi made the Packers seem humai after all. And guiding the college senioi football greats of last season— who now scatter to NFL and American League clubs as pro rookies — was quarterback Ron VanderKelen of Wisconsin, •<. player none of them wanted. Vandy wasn't even drafted. Bui after his sensational showing in the Rose Bowl game— although the Badgers lost to USC despite his record-making passing — he suddenly became popular. Winning the bid for his services were the Minnesota Vikings. After the Packers had grabbed a 7-0 lead in the opening five minutes by recovering a Larry Ferguson fumble on the All-Stars 11 and sending Jim Taylor across from the 6, Vandy steered his team 57 yards. The drive— behind the running of Ferguson (Iowa-Detroit Lions), and the pass catching of Paul Flatley (Northwestern- Vik- ^ings) and Bob Jencks (Miami Ohio-Chicago Bears)— ended with Jencks booting a 20-yard field goal. Before the first quarter closed Tommy Janik (Texas A&I-Denver Broncos) had stolen a Bart Starr pass and returned it to the Packer 27. Vandy hit his Wisconsin teammate, Pat Richter (Washington , Redskins) for 21 yards. Then, in the first four seconds of the second period, Ferguson barreled over from the 5, and Jencks added the first of his two extra points to put the All-Stars ahead 10-7. Green Bay's Tom Moore and Taylor lit a 59-yard push capped by Jerry Kramer's 21-yard field goal that locked the score 10-10, It stood that way at the half after Jencks' field-goal attempt from the Packer 19 failed when deflected by Herb Adderly. After a scoreless third quarter, as Glynn Griffing (Mississippi- New York Giants) spelled Vander- Kelen and got off some nifty passes, the All-Stars again took the lead, 13-10, on a 33-yard field goal by Jencks. Later, when Jerry Kramer's 37- yard field goal was wide for Green Bay, the most sensational play of the game developed. Va'n- dy passed 20 yards to Richter- near the sidelines, and the 6-foot-5 All-America end romped 53 more to score. The 73-yard play put the collegians on top 20-10. With six seconds left, the Packers climaxed a 63-yard aerial drive with Taylor bounding over from the 1. Riessen Out To Prove He's Singles Star SOUTH ORANGE, N.J. (AP) Marty Riessen, newly named to the U.S. Davis Cup team as a doubles specialist, hopes today to prove his value as a singles player in the semifinals of the Eastern Grass Court Tennis Championships. "I realize a lot of people think of me only as a doubles player," the 21-year-old Riessen said. "But, except for Chuck McKinley, I think I'm as good as any singles player in the country." Riessen has an opportunity to add to his singles reputation in his match with his Northwestern University teammate, Clark Graebner of Lakewood, Ohio, In the other semifinal, third-seeded Gene Scott of St. James, N.Y., opposes Dave Reed, Los Angeles. Next sveek Riessen, of Hinsdale, 111., goes to Los Angeles where the U.S. Davis Cup team assem bles for its Aug. 16-18 match with Mexico. Riessen, who will be playing on grass against Graebner, eliminat ed two left-handers Friday at the Orange Lawn Tennis Club.

'Great, Wonderful' Echoes hi Stars' Dressing Room CHICAGO (AP) — "Wowee," shouted hard-running fullback Ben Wilson, the first College Allai player to get to the dressing room after a 20-17 victory over the Green Bay Packers Friday night, and that set 'off the general reaction among the youngsters who had their first taste of professional football. "Great, wonderful, how about thut, unbelievable." Those were the remarks shouted in the hot, steamy shower room. Pat Richter, the All-America who took a pass from Wisconsin teammate Ron VanderKelen for aa 73-yard touchdown play in the final quarter, admitted the All- Stars were only trying for a first down. "Never mind," hollered head bach Otto Graham, "we'll take it. Sure, we were going for the first down but anytime you try a play in football you're also trying to go all the way." Graham moved through the dressing room slapping the players on the back and congratulating them. "You know," said Graham, "a couple of days ago line coach Dick Stanfel said Ed Budde (Michigan State) was our best offensive lineman. During the game $37,116.10 Double MONTICELLO, N.Y. (AP)—An unidentified bettor won $37,116.10 on the twin double at Monticello Raceway Friday night, believed to the highest ever at a harness track in New York State. The winning combination was 7, 1, 6 and 5 for the fifth, sixth, seventh and eighth races. he told me they were all great and I have to agree with him. "It's the best offensive line we have had since I've been coaching here," said Graham whose teams had suffered four straight losses at the hands of the professionals since an inaugural 35-19 victory over Detroit in 1958. Graham refused to compare this squad with the 1958 team saying, "That's too tough to do but I can't say enough about these guys." Asked why he switched to Glynn Griffing of Mississippi in the second half after Vander- Kelen had guided the team effectively in the first half, Graham said he wanted to give somebody else a chance, "The fact that we had a couple of fumbles also went through my mind. It .was all a tossup who would start at quarterback. All four guys are good. Terry Baker (Oregon State) and Sonny Gibbs (Texas Christian) can both throw. "VanderKelen won the job the last few days. He and Griffing did so well I just didn't have a chance to use the others. I went back to VanderKelen because felt he could do the job at tha specific time." Vince Lombard!, coach of th Packers, said: "We have no e> cuses. That was a fine All-Sta squad and VanderKelen is a gres pro prospect;'He handles himse exceptionally well."' Lombard! missed the said .the Packei services of injure linebacker Ray Nitschke and tha full back Jim Taylor was not u to par. "I tried to get Taylor out o there a couple of limes but h Down 11-5, Cubs Win Against Giants, 12-11 CHICAGO (AP)—The Chicago Cubs liked the script they used in the second game of a doubleheader against St. Louis so well last Sunday that they decided to keep it. It came in handy because they did about the same thing to San Francisco Friday, winning 12-11, as they did to the Cardinals nearly a week ago. Against St. Louis the Cubs aounced off an 11-6 deficit in the seventh inning and went on to club the Cardinals 16-11 for a doubleheader sweep. Against the Giants, the Cubs, were down 11-5 when they erupted for six runs in the eighth to tie the game, going on to win. it on Jim Sclmffer's run-scoring single with two out in the 10th. Schaffer singled home the first run in the big eighth. Leo Burke then hit a pinch three-run homeland Ellis Burton followed with a two-run homer to pull the game into a tie. The Cuhs now have defeated San Francisco six times in seven games played in Chicago and will send Bob Buhl (9-8) against the Giants today. San Francisco will counter with .Jack Sanford (10-11). Sanford started against the Cubs Friday and was knocked out in the first inning before retiring a man as the Cubs took a 3-0 lead on Billy. Williams' three-run hon: er.

Of all the "additives" that can be combined With regular .offerings, observe fishing authorities, nothing beats a hunk of pork. Regardless of the species being sought, they say, this particular adornment will work miracles from the seashore, through the warm water areas, to the haunts of the arctic grayling. The pork rind,, known variously as "hawg gashes" or "pickled eels," also is available In shapes, sizes and colors specifically designed to arouse the feeding instincts of nearly every fish that swims. From bluegllls to muskles, sails to salmon, a chunk of. pork has been the downfall of many a reluctant battler. Strips of this artificial-natural bait may be attached to practically all lures, They are deadly as eels hooked to weedless spoons or jigs. Matchstick-thln strips tall- Ing a spinner give that added strike- producing wiggle. Some pork comes In the form of "pllla," apparently Imitating bite-size cal- mon eggs that summon trout so well. For certain occasions, mere shavings, called "flicks," impaled on a plain hook will do. the trick with blueglll, yellow perch and crapple. Versatility of pork rind 'is overshadowed only by durability, No bull has Us staying power, the ability to remain fresh hour after hour. None matches Its toughness when combating short strikes and fouling. And you can't lose It during n cast. Pork may not alwys be the best bail, veteran anglers say, but it certainly merits n reserved hit-he in over tackle box. Pack some pork next lime. The fish will love it.
