MONDAY, SEPTEMBER 9,1963 ALTON EVENING TELEGRAPH PAGE WildcatsHave 27 Vets (First in a series on 1963 Big Ten football prospects by Jerry Liska, Midwest AP Sports Editor, who is making his ninth annual tour of camps). Northwestern By JERRY LISKA Associated Press Sports Writer EVANSTON, 111. (AP) — "If we get off to a good start, we'll really fight like a Wildcat to stay on top," Northwestern's fooball coach, Ara Parseghian vowed today. Getting off to a good start — but sagging later because of thin personnel — has been a Big Ten football hallmark of Northwestern's Wildcats, this season tabbed not only conference but also national title contenders. Northwestern last won the Big Ten crown in 1936 but in the reign of the dynamic Parseghian, start- Ing his eighth NU season, the Wildcats have clawed far out of the doormat class. This could be moon-shot year with the 'Cats propelled to their first league title in 27 seasons by the talented passing of quarter- back Tom Myers and the mos experienced squad yet mustere by Parseghian. Twenty-seven lettermen retur from Northwestern's free-wheelln 1962 team, which had a snappy 7- record, but suffered both defeat in Big Ten play — against cham pion Wisconsin (37-6) and Michi gan State (31-7). No fewer than 11 men classl fled as 1962 regulars came back But already the Injury bugaboc which perennially hexes North western has struck. Top middl linebacker Rich Olson is out a least half the season with a broken thumb. Sophomore Gary Stump, .a top prospect at the importan flanker back spot vacated b> graduated Paul Flatley, is lost fo the season because of torn knee ligaments. Furthermore, Parseghian is walking on eggs over the durabili ty of no fewer than five regulars who underwent offseason surgery and missed spring drills. Top man in this limp brigadi is prospective All-America guard Jack Cvercko. He, along with full Payment Troubles? - CONSOLIDATE If you are unable to pay your payments, debts, or bills when due, arrange payments you can afford regardless of how much or how many you owe.

For full Information send name, address, and phone number to: National Cibo House Corporation 1605 Sterick Building:, Memphis 3, Tennessee back Bill Swingle and ends Gary Crum and Pat Riley, had knee operations. In addition, fleet half back Willie Stinson, leading Wildcat rusher last year with a 4.2 average, had shoulder surgery. Without Flatley as his prime target, Myers' proven sharpshoot- ing will be directed into a more scattered pattern. Parseghian's flanker formation may be expanded to twin flankers with a lonesome end receiver and a lot more passing to the ends, primarily co-captain Churk Logan. "We could be a pretty good football team If we stave off injuries," said Parseghian. "We certainly will fight like hell to avoid that inevitable November letdown." But November brings the moment of conference truth to the Wildcats. Their final two games are against defending champion Wisconsin (Nov. 9) and always powerful Ohio State (Nov. 16). Parseghian has been bringing Cvercko, 230 - pound bearcat, along by easy stages in testing his repaired knee. "Two-a-day sessions brought some swelling from fluid, but we know what Cvercko can do and we don't have to scrimmage him too often," said Parseghian. The Wildcats can volley a solid ground attack to complement Myers' passing, with fullbacks Swingle and Steve Murphy and halfbacks Stinson and Dick McCauley all seasoned, swift and hard runners. In the line, Logan and Riley at ;nds, co-captain Kent Pike, Joe Szcecko, Lou Dineff and Mike Schwager at tackles; Cvercko and Larry Zeno at guards and 226- round Joe Cerne at center, are ough and rugged. With Olson missing, the middle nebacker must be either letterman Dick Uhlir or sophomore im Haughsness. Baseball hall of famer Bob Fel- r pitched 12 one-hit games for he Cleveland Indians, a major eague record. At least one Detroit Tiger has it 20 home runs in every Amerian League season since 1946.

Phone 465-9819 and Outdoors with Ilnrold Brand New Shooting Preserve The Hidden Valley Ranch Shoot ing Preserve, three miles north of Hardin on Rte. 100, will open Oct. 15, announced Harold Bean, secretary and manager of t h e preserve. Bean was formerly director of the Alton Recreation and playground Department. The preserve will operate on a membership basis at $185 a year. This includes a $100 clubhouse fee plus one dollar credit per bird on the first 85 birds taken Quail, pheasant and chukars partridge will be offered to member hunters. "We have reserved 3,500 birds for the coming five-month Illinois controlled shooting season Oct. 15 through next March 15,' Bean said. "The ranch has been under development for three years and will offer much diversification in outdoor recreation. Winter Ski Run "Trapshooting is also available," Bean continued. "We will operate the year around with a children's camp and dude ranch. A winter ski run is to be constructed with artificial snow machines. Future plans also include lakea in which trout and bass will be stocked." The 600-acre preserve is t h e next valley to the left on Rte. 100 north of the Godar-Diamond Island access point on the Illinois River. The hunting lodge will offer relaxing, coffee, sandwiches and dinner. Pheasant and chukar will be offered at $5 for each bird taken and $2.50 for each quail released. Juides will accompany hunters and trained bird dogs are available. All hunting is to be done in strict compliance with state game and conservation department regulations. Hunters must have an llinois huning license. Officers of the ranch are presi- ient Clarence Skcel, Kampsville; vice president Gall Wanless, springfield; and treasurer Merle nman, Batchtown. Bean will reside on the ranch and a tele- phone is being installed. The ranch mailing address is P.O. Box 53, Hardin, 111. Ribbing The Regulation* Waterfowl hunters have been squeezed constantly in recent years by more rules and regula tions and lower bag limits. For Example, goose hunters may carry only 10 shells when they go afield in state-managed areas of southern Illinois. Some copies o an article written half in fun anc half In jest by an outdoor writer is being circulated among waterfowl hunters to show what could come in the future. Here are some of the high points of the supposed regulations for 1970: Season opens Sept. 2 at 10:14 a.m. and closes Sept. 16 af 8:14 a.m. Shooting will be per mitted from 10:14 every other day of the season if the wind ve locity doesn't exceed four miles an hour. Two female coots or one male coot and one female saw bill may be taken. Only one mallard may be taken during the season. Dressing Permit The hunter must have a pick ing and cleaning permit at $2 for the mallard if he scores one Blinds must be 41 yards from any vegetation. Hunters must wear boots, pants, coat and gloves of either highway yellow, Hawaiian blue or stop-light red. Hunters must wear a blinker light on the official government hunting cap to be purchased an any post- office. Guns of any gauge to 28 gauge may be used but stocks may not be more than three inches in length. Duck calls are illegal. Calling may be done orally if the hunter has two half-inch ball bearings in his mouth. The aforementioned possible regulations were sent to us by L. D. Allen, 562 Nevada St., East Alton, who commented: "I am sure that you will agree that regardless of how bad the hunting situation may get, it could always be worse." Osuna Captures U.S. Net Title Carry Back up By Six Lengths Two names top racing's headlines today, one the familiar Carry Back, who won the Kentucky Derby in 1961, and the other a young colt in the West—Golden Ruler—who is being pointed for that blue ribbon classic next May in Louisville. Carry Back, on the comeback trail, blasted home a six-length winner Saturday on the Atlantic City grass course, prepplng for the invitational $125,000 United Nations Handicap there next Saturday. Golden Ruler whipped 14 other 2-year-olds in the world's richest horse race, the $352,500 Arlington- Washington Futurity at Chicago, to remain unbeaten in four starts. Owner Mary V. Fisher of Detroit said the colt's remaining 1963 campaign would be light. For Carry Back it was his first victory since he came out of retirement last month. He had finished second Aug. 17 in the Buckeye Handicap at Cleveland's Randall Park. Golden Ruler won the Arlington gold rush by three quarters of a length from Powhatan Stable's Chieftain, paying $6.80 as the favorite. Mrs. Dorothy Comiskey Rigney's Dunfee finished third. The winner collected $112,500, plus an additional $10,000 nominator award. Coe Defends Amateur Title By WILL GRIMSLEY Associated Press Sports Writer FOREST HILLS, N.Y.

Venezuelan Quintuplets Doing Well MARACAIBO, Venezuela fAP)- A team of medical specialists kept vigil today over three-day-old quintuplet boys, born almost two months premature to a Venezue- an grandmother. The mother, Mrs. Maria Cuervo de Prieto, 34, and the infants— the third known set of quintuplets, born in the Western Hemisphere- were reported by a spokesman at Maracaibo Hospital to be In satisfactory condition. The babies were placed in an incubator and given a special skimmed milk diet. Mrs. de Prieto has five children by a previous marriage, including a daughter, 17, who recently gave birth. Divorcees The husband, Efren Luis de Prieto, 39, a foreman for the Creole Petroleum Co., a subsidiary of Standard Oil of New Jersey, has eight children from an earlier marriage. Both De Prieto and his wife are divorcees. The quintuplets were born during a 50-minute period shortly after midnight Friday. Doctors said the first baby weighed 3 pounds, 15.5 ounces; the second 3 pounds, 4.9 ounces; the third and fourth each 3 pounds 1.4 ounces; .and the fifth 4 pounds 3 ounces. "I feel well," said Mrs. de Prieto. "There was no sickness, nor nain. It was tranquil." The father was quoted by the newspaper El Nacional as saying ; he married his common-law wife, of two years at a simple ceremony several hours after the births. "I decided to marry her when I learned she was going to have quintuplets," said the proud father. Mrs. de Prieto entered the hospital early last month for special care after her doctor reported she was expecting a multiple birth. The quintuplets were expected in November. Congratulat'ons Gov. Luis Vera Gomez of Zulia State visited the mother and babies, extending congratulations from President Romulo Betancourt. The governor said the babies would be guaranteed help and protection by the government and that the family may receive a new house. With several doctors and nurses serving as godparents, a priest baptized the babies Saturday night as Robinson, Fernando, Otto, Juan Jose and Mario. They were named after five of the doctors who assisted at the births. The first verified birth of quintuplets in the Western Hemisphere was that of the Dionne sisters in Canada. Annette, Cecile, Emilie, Marie, and Yvonne Dionne were born May 28, 1934. Emilie died Aug. 6, 1954. The Diligenti quintuplets—Maria Fernanda, Maria Cristina, Maria Esther, Carlo and Franco- were born in Argentina on July 15, 1943. All five survive. The Dionne and Diligenti qirin- uplets are the only known five- somes to survive infancy of the 50 or more previous quintuplet births or which some sort of record ex- sts.
