ALTON EVENING WEDNESDAY, AUGUST 28,1963 Speedy Scot Heads Hani ho Field Today % CHARLES CHAMBERLAIN Associated Press SpoHs Writer DU QUOIN, 111. (AP)-A field of 10 colts and 4 fillies—some of them just recovering from weakening virus infections — appeared set for the $115,588 Hambletonl- an Stake today. The blue ribbon fixture for 3- year-old trotters will carry the sixth richest purse since its 1926 beginning, with $56,619 going to the winner and prize money through five places. A record crowd of about 40,000 was expected in the Du Quoin State Fairground, where parimu- tuel betting is prohibited by state law. The overwhelming 2-5 favorite on the unofficial line was Speedy Scot, the juvenile trolling champion of 1962 owned by Castleton Farm, Lexington, Ky., and trained and driven by Canadian- born Ralph Baldwin, 47. Speedy Scot, winner of five out of six starts this season and $182,- 091 in two years, is given chance by harness racing experts to break the Hambletonian mile record of 1:58 2-5 by Harlan Dean in 1961. Cheer Honey, top trotting filly as a 2-year-old, has been wearing an improvised oxygen mask twice daily since getting a virus infection last weekend. B. F. CoaltoWn, second choice with Cheer Honey al 4-1, also ha been breathing medicated oxygen for a throat infection that he had a month ago. Other Hambletonian starters who had virus trouble earlier in the season include Diggs Dell, Bluff Hanover, Careless Hanover anl Filter. Another trotter who may be under par is Star Act, who has been suffering from a bone chip in her left knee. The Hambletonian is raced in mile heats an hour apart. The first will go off at 2:30 p.m., EST. The first horse to win two heats is the champion. Downing, Bouton Blank Bosox Twice By BOB GREEN Associated Press Sports Writer Two young arms—one left, one right—are the seals on the Yankee dynasty. They belong to New York pitchers Al Downing, 22, a lefty, anc Jim Bouton, 24, a right-hander Between them they contain the promise of Yankee domination of the American League for years to come. Sunday, Downing had a no-hitter going for seven innings and finished with a two-hit shutout, running his record to 10-4. It was Bouton's turn Tuesday. He had a no-hitter for eight innings, and finished with a two-hit, 5-0 shut- Bouton Really Wanted No-Hit Game With Sox By JOE REICHLER Associated Press Sports Writer NEW YORK (AP)—Jim Bouton, the new right-handed ace of the New York Yankees, will have none of this nonsense of shrugging off the lost chance for a no-hitter. "I really wanted it," Bouton barked in the dressing room after a lead-off, ninth-inning single by pinch hitter Russ Nixon of Boston spoiled his bid for a hitless game at Yankee Stadium Tuesday night. "I knew from the start that I had a chance and I was really bearing down from the fourth inning on. "But I made a stupid pitch to Nixon. The situation called for a breaking pitch but like a dope 1 threw him a fast ball. I figured I'd fool him." Nixon's hit, a clean smash through the middle of the infield, was followed immediately by a lined single to right by Gary Geiger but Bouton settled down to retire the side without any scoring and won 5-0 for his 18th victory. The 24-year-old Bouton still was berating himself long after Ralph Terry followed his performance with a five-hitter for a 3-0 Yankee triumph and a double shutout for the American League leaders. Bouton, after permitting two first inning baserunners on an error and a walk, had retired 22 in a row when Nixon balled in the ninth for relief pitcher Jack La- mabc. But he still svanted that no- hitter. "I remember pitching one for Bloom Township High School in Chicago Heights, 111., in the state tournament back in 1957," Bouton said. "But in three years in the minors I didn't even pitch a shut out, let alone a no-hitter. "If I had to, I would have taken that liner Nixon hit in my mouth I would have deserved it, too." out, running his record to 18-6, best on the Yankee staff. Ralph Terry, at 27, old only by comparison, finished off the twi night doubleheader against Boston with a five-hit, 3-0 job. It was his 15th victory and stretched the Yankees' bulging league lead to 12 ! /2 games. In other AL games, Chicago pulled into a share of second place with idle Minnesota by beating Cleveland 6-1, Kansas City edged Baltimore 2-1 in 10 innings and Detroit topped Los Angeles 4-1 in the only games scheduled. The twin shutouts by Bouton and Terry were the third and fourth in the Yanks' last five games. The Yankee staff has al- owed only two runs in the last 51 innings, both in a 2-1, 12-inning loss to Chicago in the second game of a Sunday doubleheader. Bouton is one of the big surprises. He had only a 7-7 record ast season, started this year in the bullpen and has blossomed nto the Yanks' No. 1 right- lander. The hard-throwing youngster lad allowed only two base runners and had retired 22 men in order before Boston pinch hitter Russ Nixon singled past his ear eading off the ninth. Bouton let down a mil after that and Gary Geiger followed with another single, but he got out of t without trouble. The Yanks gave him all the backing he needed with two first- nning runs on singles by Bobby Richardson and Elston Howard and doubles by Tom Tresh and Hector Lopez. The White Sox' Dave Nicholson struck out four times, setting a major league season record of 144, but Tom McCraw and Pete Ward each drove in two runs with a homer and single in Chicago's victory over the Indians. Bob Goalby Defends Title DENVER (AP) — Touring pro ;olfers attack the Denver Country club's tree-lined, narrow fair- ivays today in a pro-amateur :uneup for the start Thursday of the $40,000 Denver Open. Bob Charles, the left-handed British Open champion, headed a field of 147 pros. Top money winners Arnold Palmer, Jack Nicklaus and Julius Boros have other commitments. Bob Goalby, winner of the 1962 Denver Open, said after a practice tour of the 6,774-yard, par 35-35— 70 course that he thought the winning score this time would beat his three-under-par 277 a year ago After two rounds Thursday anc Friday the field will be cut to the low 65 pros, plus ties, and 10 amateurs for the final rounds Sat urday and Sunday.

Cassady, who won the Heisman Trophy in 1955 as the lop college player while at Ohio State, was jplaced on waivers by the Philadelphia Eagles of the National Football League as the American pros reached a mandatory cut- down date. Stephens, All-America quarterback at Minnesota in 1961, was Illinois Lefty Quarterbacks 1963 Badgers MADISON, Wis. (AP)—Harold Brandt, a left-handed flinger from Hinsdale, 111., will be the University of Wisconsin's No. 1 quarterback this football season if he starts being himself. "Brandt has the best knowledge of our brand of football," Coach Milt Bruhn said Tuesday, "but he has to learn he isn't a Ron Van dcrKelen." VanderKelen, now a mem her o Iho Minnesota Vikings of the Na tional Football League, led Wis cousin to the Big Ten Conference football title last year, was judged the conference's most valuable player and starred in both the Rose Bowl game and the College All-Star football game. As an uiv derstudy, Brandt played 55 min utes. Bruhn would like nothing bettei than to see Brandt follow in Vandy's footsteps, but the Badger coach contends the 6-foot-3 junioi isn't going to do that by trying to move the team the way Vander Kelen did. Bruhn sent Brandt home this summer with a football, a net, and instructions to stop using so much wrist in throwing his passes "We've been getting good reports," the coach slid. dropped by. the Montreal Alouettes of the Canadian Football League vith the Als paying him for the •emainder of his three-year no- cut contract.

He was unimpressive as a •ookie last season and was benched as overweight in the Alouettes third game of the season last week. Cassady, 29, a six-year-NFL veteran with Detroit, Cleveland and the Eagles, played 10 games with Philadelphia as a split end last season before he was sidelined with a broken right leg. He has played only a few minutes in Philadelphia exhibitions this season and liis release apparently means that Baylor rookie Ronnie Goodwin has won Ihe job.

(AP)— The National Tennis Champion ships get under way today al the West Side Tennis Club on a note of international mystery. Everybody is asking: "Wha happened to the Russians?"

Big Ten Lists Schedules for 1960 and 1970 CHICAGO (AP) — Looking fa ahead, the Big Ten announced its 1969 and 1970 football schedules Tuesday with an ultimate goal of every team playing every other team. Currently, the Big Ten plays nine games with a minimum of six conference games. However, n 1965 the schedule will be ex- laiided to 10 games except for Ohio State which will remain restricted to nine games because of faculty board action. Beginning in 1969, teams may play three non-conference games jefore reverting to league play on he final seven Saturdays. Start- ng in 1965, only conference games will be allowed in November. Commissioner Bill Reed said that within 10 years, each school will meet every other school. Reed also added the conference schedules for 1969 and 1970 were made so far in advance because outside schools were pressing to make dates with Big Ten teams. Meanwhile, conference athletic directors awarded Northwestern University the Big Ten's 1964 outdoor track and field championships which will be held May 2223 in Evanslon, 111.
