WEDNESDAY, SEPTEMBER 18, 1963 ALTON EVENINC7 TELEGRAPH PAGE SEVENTEEN Cunningham's Double Wins For White Sox CHICAGO (AP) - The Chicago White Sox returned home Tuesday night and for a while in pre- game drills there were more players on the field than there were customers in the stands. The reason was that the Sox have recalled a number of farm hands who will finish out the season. The youngsters, however, had no hand in a 2-1 victory the Sox posted over Boston. Joe Cunningham, the veteran who was sorely missed because of a broken collarbone which sidelined him for three months, delivered a clutch two-run, two out double in the fifth inning. Hoyt Wilhelm took over for Joe Hol-len in the seventh inning and yielded one hit the rest of the way to protect the narrow load. The White Sox and Red Sox will engage in a twi-night doubleheader tonight with Gary Peters (18-6) and Ray Herbert (12-10) facing Earl Wilson (11-16) and Dave Morehead (9-12). The Chicago Cubs split a twi- night doubleheader with Pitts burgh Tuesday, winning the opener 3-1 and losing the nightcap 4-3. A double by John Boccabella and consecutive triples by Lou Brock and Andre Rodgers gave; the Cubs all the runs they needed in the first game. Bob Buhl, getting help from Lindy McDaniel, broke a seven-game losing streak and boosted his record to 10-13. He struck out six to give him a career total of 1,000. Donn Clendenon singled home the winning run in the eighth inning of the nightcap. Decatur, Bloomington Rated Favorites in Big 12 Chase (The seventh in a series of articles dealing with the 1963 football fortunes of Illinois prep teams. Mac McGee, sports writer for the Decatur Herald and Review, today takes a close look at the Big 12 Conference). By MAC MC OEE Sports Writer Decatur Herald and Review DECATUR, 111. m — Stephen Decatur's Reds and the Bloomington Raiders — both boasting eight returning regulars — are co-favorites r of2 thessCSsooBigls strong co-favorites for the Big 12 Conference football championship this fall. Should either stumble in the litter of their press clippings, the Springfield Senators, Mattoon Green Wave, Urbana Tigers or Champaign Maroons could slip unheralded into the top spot. If Lincoln Railsplitters or the Danville Vikings were to make it, it would be a real surprise. Stephen Decatur, co-champ last season with Urbana when both compiled 4-1 records, will again be led by halfback Butch Smith, a 190-pound senior who rates high as an All-State candidate. Smith, a braising runner with better than average speed, will team at halfback with junior Bobby Warmsley, another returning regular. Veteran Denny Alldridge is back at quarterback and Coach Jim Tale's only backfield worry is a replacement for fullback Ray Willett. Either junior John Barry 178) or Benny Cooper (160) appears ready to step in. Regulars back in the line are ends Frank Schultz: and Joe Dillman, tackle Brian Wisher, guard Steve Vallas and center Wes Mason. "If our backfield remains intact, we'll do a respectable job," says Tate. "An injury back there could hurt us badly. There's P o depth." All-State halfback Ron Bess is the big reason Bloomington rates high. Bess does everything extremely well and is rated among the all-time Bloomington High greats. Replacing all-conference quarterback Jim Anderson is one of Coach Bill Bess' problems. At present, senior Chuck Yurieci and Steve Wheeler, up from the soph squad, are the leading candidates. Fullback Ken Lehr and halfback Chet Bowen, like Bess, have good size and the Raider backfield should average around 180. Coach Bess isn't overly con- concerned with his offense. The Raiders moved the ball well last season and are expected to do so again. But the defense must improve over last season or it could spell trouble. Coach Chuck Oyler's Mattoon Club is considered a real dark- horse and Oyler warns: "Don't count the Greene Wave out of the iitle race." The team has experience, speed and a letterman available at every position. Joe Spurgeon starts his third year at quarterback and Dave Proffitt and Dick Tate return as halfbacks. Oyler is high on 150-pound junior J.C. Foster and may move Tate to fullback to make room for Foster. Guard Dave Kilman, 170-pound senior, is the top lineman and rated one of the best in the state by Oyler. Springfield High has a letterman at every position except fullback and Coach John Sowinski still rates the position stronger than it was last season with 180- pound Steve Kniss currently holding down the job. The Senators have 35 seniors on the squad, including 14 lettermen, and picked up transfer halfback John Luechtefeld from Belleville Cathedral. The Senators, according to Sowinski, have good potential. Problem spots are quarterback and the ends, despite the lettermen. Center Bill Martin, 170-pound senior, gives Springfield one of the best in central Illinois. Coach Tommy Stewart predicts a "late blooming" team at Champaign and bases his prediction mainly on the Maroons' inexperience. ONIY ARMSTRONG GIVES YOU SUCH GRIP!
