•tUESBAV,, AUGUST 27,1903 ALTON EVENING TELEGRAPH Filter, Only Illinois Horse, Usually Falters DtT QUOIN, 111, (AP)-minois' only native In the Hambletonlan Stakes Wednesday will be a long- shot colt with a hftblt of losing by Inches to some other Mambleloni- an starters. The owners of Filler, an 850- pound son of a former Hamble- tonlan winner, said a summer of Illness has kept the Colt out of about half Us scheduled contests. lliey have no detailed 1963 performance history for Filter on which to base an estimate of the horse's chances against Impressive starters, Including Glldden HaiioVer, Cheer Honey and the favored Speedy Scot. "Things look dim, especially against Speedy Scot," said Filter's driver, Tom (Buddy) Graham. "But we would not have entered unless we thought Filter could at least make an Impressive showing." Graham, 25, Is making his first appearance as a Hambletonlan driver. Filter Is the son of Hickory Smoke, the 1957 Hambletonl- an winner. The Herman Grahams Farms of Salem, owned by Graham's father, have been raising horses for 17 years on a 650-acre Marion County farm. Filter is the farm's first Hambletonian effort. Filter's best official time this year for a mile Is 2:05 3-5. But Ihe colt lost by a slim margin at Santa Anita earlier this year in a race that went 2:01 1-5. "Filler," the senior Graham said, "lost by an inch to Cheer Money at Springfield with Glldden Hanover ahead at 1:59 4-5, and losl In a photo finish to Speedy Scot last year at Chicago's Washington Park. "He has been sick so much It Is hard to say If he can have better luck Wednesday." A virus that has affected many harness horses this year throughout the country kept Filter under treatment until May. He lapsed Into a six-week repeal of coughing which was cleared up only recently. The Grahams purchased Filter In 1961 for $2,000. An Improvement of the horse's potenlial was Indicated by Graham's refusal In April to sell him for $75,000. He will be starling al 20-1 un official odds in Ihe Humblelonian in No. 6 post position—two positions away from Cheer Honey and three away from Speedy Scot.

The setting Was a news conference following an exhibition by the world heavyweight champion in this southern Norway town Monday night. The question was how long it would take Listen to gel in shape for a bout with former champion Ingomar Johans- Vandy Will Play Against Eagles son. The Lislon-Nilon argument was whether il would lake five days or six. Johansson's name was one of three—Cassius Clay and Floyd Pallerson were the others—that were thrown at Liston as possible opponenls. He and Nilon admitted there had been some talk of a fight MINNEAPOLIS-ST. PAUL (AP) —Waiting in the wings to make his professional debut has not been easy for Ron VanderKelen, the Minnesota Vikings' prize free agent quarterback. VanderKelen joined the Vikings about three weeks ago as the much-publicized Wisconsin star whose passing wizardry nearly rallied the Badgers to victory in this year's Rose Bowl game and then steered the College All-Stars to victory over the defending National Football League champion Green Bay Packers.

They reversed their field on a Clay fight, but held out no hope for a future bout with Patterson. "Ingemar told me personally that he is willing to fight Liston any time if the price is right," Nilon said. "I am going to confer with my brother when I get back to New York about the price." Liston also said he hoped to have a title fight with Clay, the No. 1 contender, by February. Earlier in the United States Liston and Nilon said that all negotiations with Clay and his backers had broken down. They indicated Monday that negotiations were being held up, but hinted they would be receptive to further talks. Ralston Is Seeded 3rd In Nationals By BOB GREEN Associated Press Sports Writer FOREST HILLS, N.Y. (AP)—If tempestuous Dennis Ralston can adequately demonstrate that he's grown from a Peck's Bad Boy to an angry young man the United States may be on the way toward regaining its long-lost tennis prestige. The acid test of the 21-year-old Californian with the checkered tennis past begins Wednesday on the carefully manicured courts of Forest Hills' West Side Tennis Club in the U.S. National Singles Championships. Ralston, the rangy stylist from Bakersfield, is seeded third behind bounding Chuck McKinley, the Wimbledon champion from San Antonio, Tex., and Australian Roy Emerson, the Australian and French champion. Rafael Osuna of Mexico is seeded fourth. The tourney proper begins Friday, but qualification eliminations for the huge field of 224 players, including more than 100 foreign champions, open Wednesday with 64 men competing for 16 spots in the championship bracket of 128. The pressure is squarely on Ralston, not only to demonstrate his maturity—and with it the ability to channel his temper toward demolishing opponents instead of throwing rackets—but also to solidify American hopes of again becoming an international tennis power. Ralston was regarded as one of the country's most promising players a few years ago, then drew a year's suspension for his temper tantrums on the court during Davis Cup eliminations. He re-emerged as potentially one of the world's best in a spectacular display against Mexico in American Zone Davis Cup semifinals t\vo_ weeks ago in Los Angeles. He 'beat both his Southern California roommate, Osuna, and Antonio Palafox aiid teamed with McKinley in beating the Mexicans who hold the Wimbledon doubles title. Then, last week, he again teamed with McKinley in sweeping to the U.S. National Doubles title at Brookline, Mass., a strong indication that t he U.S. doubles team may be able to compete on equal footing with the world-dominant Australians.

The statistic includes four returning evening shows, "Dr. Kil- clare," "Ben Casey," "The Eleventh Hour" and "The Nurses." There are also the afternoon agony serials, "The Doctors" and "General Hospital." It is axiomatic in television that one popular scries spawns a rash of similar ones, but the question most often asked of "Breaking Point" producer George Lefferts these days is why a second series dedicated to exploring the labyrinths of mental and emotional illness. "Eleventh Hour," returning after a modestly successful NBC season, is staked out in exactly the same area—psychiatry and psychoanalysis. Lefferts insists there Is a need for still another series. "I think such a series does perform a constructive social service," he explained. "We're not interested in effecting instant cures for dramatic effect. But we are moving in areas where problems exist for many people and simply exposing them—ventilating them—trying to give some insight of the dynamics of things that create unluippiness, All, of course, in the hope that people can do something nbout it." Besides which, he added, "there seems to be a consuming Interest by the public in this kind of material."
