TUESDAY, SEPTEMBER 17, 1963 ALTON EVENING TELEGRAPH PAGE THIRTEEN Cards Cot to Fold, Durocher Insists By MIKE RATHET Associated Press Sports Writer "They've just got to fold," said Leo Durocher, "they've been so hot, they've just got to." Is the outspoken Los Angeles coach right, or can the St. Louis Cardinals bounce back from a 3-1 defeat by the National League- leading Dodgers Monday night in the opener of the three-game showdown that may decide the pennant winner? That was the question today as the Cardinals made ready for round No. 2—against Dodger ace Sandy Koufax, 23-5. Starting for St. Louis will be Curt Simmons, 15-7. Leo made his comment before the game, with the Cardinals heading into the series at home only one-game back of the Dodgers after rolling to 10 consecutive victories and 19 in 20 games. The tense game moved into the ninth tied 1-1 before the Dodgers put together a double by Ron Fairly, a key single by Willie Davis and an error for the two runs that gave them the victory and a two-game lead over the Cardinals. Now, even if the Cardinals take the two remaining games the Dodgers will be in first place. "I am not the least bit pessimistic," said St. Louis Manager Johnny Keane. "We've got two more with 'em. This pennant race is a long way from being over yet." While they were playing the big one at St. Louis, two other games were played in the National League. Bob Veale pitched a two-hitter and Bill Mazeroski drove in the game's only run with a single in the last of the ninth as Pittsburgh edged the Chicago Cubs 1-0. Juan Marichal won his 23rd game with a six-hitter and Orlando Cepeda hit a decisive homer to give San Francisco a 4-3 victory over Milwaukee. The only American League game—Chicago at Washington- was rained out. The Dodgers scored first against the Cardinals, getting to Ernie Broglio for a run in the sixth on a double by Maury Wills, his steal of third and a single by Tommy Davis. Stan Musial's homer—one of only three hits off Dodger starter Johnny Podres—tied it In the seventh. In the eighth, with Broglio tiring, the Cardinal manager sent in a pinch hitter, then called on Bobby Shantz to hold the Dodgers in the ninth. Ron Fairly lashed Shantz' first pitch for a double. Then Davis, who was hitting only .232 going into the game but had already collected two hits and stolen two bases, lined a single to right field. Fairly slid across the plate with the lead run on a close play. A throwing error by Julian Javier let in the other run.

Machen Comeback, Wins on KO in 6th By BOB MYERS Associated Press Sports Writer SANTA MONICA, Calif. (API-Heavyweight Eddie Machen, whose bright boxing career seemed at an end a year ago from a mental and financial breakdown, was well launched on his comeback today with visions of fighting Cassius Clay and eventually heavyweight champion Sonny Listen. A surprisingly aggressive Machen, who said he intends to continue to carry the fight to his op- ponets, knocked out trial horse Ollin Wilson of Miami, Fla., in 2:19 of the sixth round of their scheduled 10-rounder Monday night. Machen, despite his long layoff, was fairly sharp and weighed a trim 196. Wilson scaled 206. The 31-year-old Machen, who now b'ves in Beverly Hills and has a money backer in well-to-do Walter Minskoff, said he was nervous before this fight. "I think I was more tense than in any fight in my life because of all the trouble and every- thing," Machen explaind. His next fight probably will be with Alonzo Johnson of Pittsburgh around Oct. 12. Wilson was a late substitute for Johnson, who bowed out because of a flu attack. Johnson was at ringside. Machen said he would like to fight Clay as soon as possible and then try Listen again. Machen is the only fighter to last 12 rounds with Listen. They boxed in 1960 in Seattle. Machen, from the outset, was the aggressor, but Wilson stood toe-to-toe with him in an exciting fifth round. Wilson was knocked partly off balance and took a mandatory eight. In the sixth Machen finally hammered him down in a neutral corner and he took the 10 count on one knee from referee Jimmy Wilson. Five Winners CLEVELAND (AP) - Jockey Francisco (Frank) Saumell rode five-winners Monday at the Cra» wood meet at Thistledown race track. 150 Expected To Honor Oiler Coach WOOD RIVER — Tentative estimates indicate that more than 150 former Wood River football players and their wives will be on hand to pay tribute to Vic Bergholtz, Oiler coach from 1936 through 1943, at a reunion being planned for Jan. 24-25 in his honor.

Eight teams, each pairing men over and under 21, were entered in the matches played at Rock Spring tennis courts Saturday and Sunday. In semi-final matches Walmsley and Toburin defeated Dick Gray and Dick Skiff, 6-3, 6-4 and the Hardy- Brewer team won over Terry Durham and Tom Henesey 6-4, 2-6, 8-6.

Walms- Mid-State Eight Race a Toss-Up (The eighth in a series concerning the ]96e Illinois prep football season. Today, Ben Abrams, Peoria Journal Star sports writer, scans the Mid-State Eight Conference). By BEN ABRAMS Sports Writer Peorla Journal Star ley's winning service closed out the first set at 6-4. Hardy and Brewer won the second set 6-0 in far closer play than the score would indicate. In the decisive third set, Hardy's service was broken in the first game and Brewer's in the seventh. Walmsley again held service to cinch the trophy with a 6-2 set. " Saturday round robin play of one set matches between each of the eight teams eliminated all but the four finalists. Other teams entered were Walter Brink and Ron Selkirk, Chet Milford and Tom Murphy, Dr. Arthur Brewer and Bob Murphy, and Sam Cardinal and Steve Batchelor. The Senior - Junior tourney was a fitting conclusion to a most successful tennis season. The Alton Tennis Club was instrumental in promoting the Madison County tournament sponsored by Wood River Junior Chamber of Commerce. PEORIA, m. (AP)-Manual has dominated Mid-State Eight football since the league's inception in 1958. The Rams in that span have won four conference championships with onlya title sweep by Spalding in 1961 breaking the monotonous regularity. Overall Coach Ken Hinrichs' Rams have won 45 and lost 4. In conference play, the record stands at a gaudy 32-3. And what does the crystal ball show for 1963? It shows that Manual will be toughagain.with three all-conference choicesand eight lettermen returning from the unbeaten 1962 squad which was rated fourth in the state by The Associated Press , squad which established an all-time Peoria scoring record of 368 points. But teh crystal ball also reveals that Central, Woodruff and Spalding will fied outstanding teams and that the Mid-State Eight shud be one of the best balanced in the league's history. Four new coaches — Spalding's Merve Haycock, Pekin's Joe Venturi, Limestone's George Kasap and East Peoria's Dan Wile- creates added interest with the installation of new systems and new ideas. East Peoria has the best size with 10 candidates toting 200 or more pounds. But only three are seasoned and Wile thinks they might be a year away from tehii full potential. He has been impressed with halfback Jay Barnhart, a 200 wund senior wh'o performed as a and Outdoors with Harold Brand Area Duck Survey There are now several thousand ducks in the Grafton-Batchtown areas, reported Dick Vasse, federal refuge manager at Grafton. There has been quite a movement of the waterfowl into the area in the past week or so. Vasse made a survey and estimated that there are about 400 mallards on Calhoun Point and another 200 at Batchtown. In addition, there are 1,000 pintails, 2,000 bluewing teal, 30 green- wing teal and 100 shovelers in the area. There are no geese in the areas yet. "There are more wood ducks than in recent years," Vasse said. "There is an average of 2,000 woodies on Gilbert Lake. We trapped, banded and released about 900 woodies on the lake this summer." Favorable Predictions Ducks Unlimited of Canada says that aerial surveys in the north indicate a probable in. crease in the fall duck flight of at least 30 per cent above that of 1962. The greatest increases were by mallard, gadwall, baldpate, and bluewinged teal. Canvasback and redhead species also have increased. Wrestling Funds for Ducks The Alton-Wood River Sportsmen's Club is supporting one of the more than 600 waterfowl nestings rehabilitated areas in Canada operated by Ducks Unlimited. The Club pledged $20,000 a few years ago at the rate of $1,000 a year. The club is sponsoring a wrestling match at West Junior High School Wednesday at 8:30 p.m. to raise funds for this year's pledge. Due to injuries sustained by some of the wrestlers, there has been a change in the heros and villians. The new slate appears in an advertisement in tonight's Telegraph on page 13. The Australian heavyweight champion is now on the program. John Heintz of the Sportsmen's Club said that 360 pounds of chicken was fried and served to members Sunday at the Club in Godfrey. This was an increase in chicken served over previous events yet the last four persons in line Sunday were served gizzards because the cooks ran out of chicken. Boner Club Nominee In a three hour period last Thursday near White Hall, Tom Gavin and his son, Tom Gavin Jr., West Ninth Street, scored four squirrels. The younger Gavin scored three of them. Gavin Sr., is now a nominee to the Boners Club because he fired six shots at four squirrels, all in one tree, and missed every one.

A CHICAGO (AP)—Midwest football briefs: ILLINOIS — First and second string left ends Bill' Pasko and Gregg Schumacher were sidelined with injuries along with guard Lynn Stewart. Pasko has a hip bruise, Schumacher pulled a leg muscle and Stewart a possible bladder infection. IOWA—First string halfback Bob Lezotte has been ruled out of action for the season because of head injuries. Gary Simpson will probably fill in for Lezotte. MINNESOTA — Five sophomores worked out with the Gophers' first unit and all five might be in the starting lineup against Nebraska a week from Saturday. They are ends Bob Bruggers and John Rajala, guard Bill Dallman and halfbacks Dick Harren and Fred Farthing. PURDUE—Senior fullback Gene Donaldson and reserve halfback Ron Kubeck'a were back in action after an injury layoff. The Boilermakers went through a light workout.

However, Coach Bob Baietto hopes to use superior speed to offset other sohrtcom- ings. The picture at Limestone eon- inues to be dismal at best. Kasap's gridders are small and he has only six lettermen. Only three performers are heavier than 185 pounds. The rugged early-season schedule —Spalding, Central and Manual on the first three weekends — makes things even more ominous. Tackle Gary White, guard Edgar Hinton and center Ted Arndt ase Manual's all-conferences returnees. Central has two eturn- ing in end Bill Reising and quarterback Chuck Neumann. Spalding and Woodruff each own a letterman fullback—Al Shipman and Bill Allen, respectively. The conference seems to be loaded with talent at the quarterback and fullback positions. In addition to xneumann, other top signal callers include Manual's Dennis MrWethy, Woodruff's Terry Knapp, Pekin's Rick Venturi and Spalding's Tom Gilfillan.

Ruling resulted from Burroughs too- strenuous disagreement with officials over play Eagle Back Burroughs Says PHILADELPHIA (AP)—A sorry Don Burroughs, the Philadelphia Eagles' defensive back, will not be present at Sunday's National Football League game here against the St. Louis Cardinals because of a disciplinary order from NFL Commissioner Pete Rozelle. Rozelle not only barred Burroughs from the game as the result of the player's strenuous protests Sunday against a decision in the Eagles-Pittsburgh Steelers' 21-21 tie game, he told Burroughs to keep away from Franklin Field. The one-game suspension is without pay. The action, Rozelle said, is because Burroughs "ran after a game official (field judge Dan Tehan) who was going to his dressing quarters on the opposite side of the field from the Eagles' locker room. Burroughs grabbed or shoved the official. In the confusion a second official (referee Bill Downes) was struck across the face, apparently inadvertently by Burroughs before the player ran to his dressing room." '**'** * "" * "I was wrong—1 did not mean to go as far as I did in expressing my feelings at the officials' call," he said. He had said earlier he was expecting a fine for the vehemence of his objections to the ruling by Tehan on a forward pass from the Steelers 1 Ed Brown to Preston Carpenter in the lust minute of the game. Carpenter was tackled by Jimmy Carr and dropped the hall, and Burroughs fell on it. Tehan near end of hist Sunday's called it a completed pass and Eagles-Pittsburgh Steel ers tie game in Philadel- said the fumble and recovery did not count as he had whistled the phia.

Spahn Night In Milwaukee MILWAUKEE (AP) - Despite persistent rumors that (he Braves are headed for Atlanta in 1964, Milwaukee's largest turnout of the season is expected tonight to pay tribute to wonderful Warren Spahn. About 40,000 fans, civic leaders and baseball officials will join in tendering the 42-year-old southpaw one of his greatest honors on "Warren Spahn Night."

The usual shower of gifts will be missing. Instead, Spahn's name will be perpetuated by establishment of the Warren Spahn Schol arship Foundation. The fund will be financed by the sale of "Spah nie" bultons at 25 cents each and private gifts. The button sale is expected to realize more than $50,000. Private gifts include a personal contribu lion of $500 by Spahn himself.

Well, we got it Monday night—a horror show. The' program was the first of a new series, "The Outer Limits" heralded as science fiction and complete with a monster—a chrome-plated three-fingered thing from a distant planet somehow pulled down by radio beams to Southern California. It was very reminiscent of :hose jolly old scary movies—but with modern refinements. The creature from outer space lum- jered around like a Frankenstein monster. It was preceded by gale winds. It dispatched enemies with electrical charges. He spoke and understood English, monster style. Because the series comes at an early evening hour (6:30-7:30) CDT), it apparently is aimed at a youthful audience. It's the sort of nonsense that is likely to be boring to the post-21 viewers. "Breaking Point," a new dramatic series dealing with people in need of psychiatric help, took over the ABC channel for a late evening hour (9-11 EOT), The program seemed clinical, unnecessarily painful and failed to prove anything very much. But, apparently, there's a large and eager audience for this type of diversion. ABC continues to pour its new programs and its old programs with fresh stories into the network channel. Tonight's new entries are two. "The Greatest Show on Earth" is a dramatic series with a circus background starring Jack Palance as the owner of the outfit (8-i)> CDT). "The Fugitive," (9-10) recounts the adventures of an innocent hunted man (David Janssen) who is trying to find the murderer of his wife, the crime for which he lias been convicted. "Combat" returns tor another season of winning the grim war in Normandy (6:30-7:30) and "McHale's Navy" sails back to continue the comedy conflict in the Pacific (7:30$). i
