MONDAY, SEPTEMBER 23,1963 ALTON EVENING TELEGRAPH PAGE SEVENTEEN Sooners Use Ringer to Win, 31-14 Staubach.) Myers Star In Grid Games By BOB GREEN Associated Press Sports Writer Of course Oklahoma won. What would you expect? After all, they had a Ringer playing quarterback. Mike Ringer, no illegal import but a home grown product from Pauls Valley, Okla., passed forone touchdown and sneaked over for anothr In the Sooners' open-ing bid to regain their lost football glory. Ringer' is the first sophomore ever to start at quarterback' for a Bud Wilkinson-coached team, some of which dominated the national college football scene decade ago. Wilkinson said in a pre-season analysis that Ringer's ability to fill the shoes of the departed Monte Deere would be one of the "two principal factors determin Ing the success of our team." The other big factor was defense. The defense, less than spectacular in the first half as Clemson took a 14-7 lead, came to life after intermission and scored the go- ahead touchdown when tackle John Flynn blocked a Clemson punt and the Sooners recovered in the end zone. Ringer, who showed a steady, reliable hand at quarter, contributed to the next two touchdowns and the Sooners, ranked fourth in The Associated Press' pre-season poll, had a 31-14 victory. The performances of Ringer and the defense apparently answered Wilkinson's needs and served as a warm-up for their important clash with defending national champion Southern California this weekend in the television game of the week. The Rose Bowl champions were lackluster and less than impressive in a 14-0 decision in the mud at Colorado. The Trojans were picked as the team to beat again this season, but their top ranking could be in jeopardy. Quarterbacks generally dominated proceedings on college football's first full Saturday. Navy's Roger Staubach, hero of last year's Army game, led the ninth-ranked Middies to a 51-7 rout of West Virginia while his Air Force counterpart, Terry Isaacson, led the Falcons on a dramatic, last-gasp, 91-yard touchdown march that upset 10th- ranked Washington 10-7 in the television game of the day. Staubach completed 17 of 22 passes for 171 yards and one touchdown in the rout of the massive Mountaineers, while Isaacson completed seven of eight passes in the march against Washington and bolted over from the seven for the winning touchdown. Tom Myers, quarterback for Northwestern's sixth-ranked Wildcats, completed 10 of 16 passes, one for a touchdown and tsvo to set up scores in the 23-13 victory over Missouri. ' '• The big upset, however, came as the defense of little Memphis State, which is making a bid for Jhe big time, held second-ranked •Mississippi to a scoreless tie. Third-ranked Alabama rolled over Georgia 32-17. " Among the other ranked teams, No. 7 Wisconsin blasted Western Michigan 41-0, No. 8 Arkansas Ranked Oklahoma State 21-0 and No. 5 Texas beat Tulane 21-0 Fri>day. WRONG ALLEY • PHOENIX, Ariz.

Today is the anniversary of Lavorante's knockout defeat in Los Angeles by Johnny Biggins on Sept. 21, 1962, that plunged him into the coma. Two doctors and the whole Lavorante family pamper and comfort the boxer but they are unable to bring out anything but the slightest response.

The Dodgers had a chance to clinch the pennant Sunday, but 3ob Veale and trived to. pitch Roy aa Face con- three-hitter against them and they lost to Pittsburgh 4-0. It was the first time the Dodgers had been shut out in 80 games. The second-place St. Louis Cardinals, meanwhile, were beaten 5-2 at Cincinnati. That left St. Louis with as good a chance of winning the pennant as it has of becoming a major seaport. The Cardinals, trailing the Dodgers by 5% games with less than a week to play, meet the Cubs in a day game at Chicago Tuesday. If the Cards lose, they're eliminated. The Dodgers had won five in a row and 16 of 21 before the Pirates Chisox Take Step Toward Second Spot CHICAGO (AP) - The Chicago White Sox advanced another step towards a second place finish in he American League while the Chicago Cubs kept alive their slim hopes for a first division fin- ,sh in the National League. The White Sox defeated Detroit 3-2 on home runs by Floyd Robnson and Ron Hansen to remain two games ahead of third place Minnesota and the Cubs downed Milwaukee 7-3 to remain bur games behind fifth place Cincinnati. The home runs by Robinson and Hansen were the 13th for each man with Hansen's coming with one on in the sixth to assure Joe Horlen of his 10th victory against seven losses. Hansen also collected two of Chicago's eight lits. The Cubs battered the Braves n the early innings and grabbed i 6-1 dead and then coasted behind the nine-hit pitching of Bob Buhl who picked up his llth triumph against 13 losses. Buhl drove in three of the Cub runs while catcher Merritt Ranew ROCKING CHAIR CINCINNATI — Cincinnati Beds players gave veteran Stan Muslal a rocking chair Sunday on the occasion of his last appearance here as a St. -Louis Cardinal player.

"I don't think we can count on the Cards' They've lost losing five in a Tuesday, row now. That's a pretty good ball club to beat five straight." The telephone rang while Alston was talking with newsmen in his dressing room. "Yeah," Alston said to the party at the other end, "I guess we've got to waitt one more — thanks, Danny — good luck to you, too.' The call was from Pittsburgh Manager Danny Murtaugh.

(AP) — George Bork, junior forward passing star for Northern Illinois University, set a new passing record for yards gained in the National Association of Intercollegiate Athletics. He completed 232 of 336 attempts for 2,506 yards. The old record of 2,325 yards was set in 1952 by Don Gottlob of Sam Houston State. land Open Golf Tournament championship Sunday in an extra- hole playoff. The 26-year-old Knudson, winning his first tournament since 1961, sank a 45-foot chip shot on the first playoff hole for an eagle. At that his shot barely won the prize. The 29-year-old Mason Rudolph, chipping from almost the same spot as Knudson, hit the back of the cup with his shot. It bounced a few feet beyond and lie had lo settle for second prize of $3,000 while Knudson carried away $4,300. It was another in a series, of disappointments for the steady Rudolph. Seldom out of the money, he has failed to win a tournament since he did it in his freshman professional year of 1959. Third prize went to Dave Hill, Evergreen, Colo., with rounds of 70-66-69-68—273, which was worth $2,000. Three deadlocked for fourth prize and shared $1,533 each. They were Dave Marr of New Rochelle, N.Y., Gardner Dickinson Jr., of Atlantis, Fla., and Mike. Souchak, Grossinger, N.Y., at 274.

"I think I have a good chance for a better record next year,' the classy right-hander of the Bal timore Orioles said Sunday after beating the Washington Senators 6-3 in the first game of a double header. The victory was the 14th of the season for Roberts—his highest winning total since 1959—and the 258th of a major league career which began in 1948. The record of the former Philadelphia Phillies' star dipped to a dismal 1-10 in 1961, and many observers said he was through. But Roberts bounced back last season with the Orioles, posting a 10-9 record with a 2.78 earned run average. What of the future? "I'd like to win 300 games, sure," Roberts said. "But more than anything else, I'd like to make a living by pitching. When a pitcher reaches a certain age, and is able to get the batters out without great speed, he should go on as long as he's physically able. Tony Yates, Siegfried Cut By Hawks ST. LOUIS — The St. Louis Hawks professional basketball :eam released fromer Ohio State star Larry Siegried and asked waivers on Tony Yates of Cincinnati U. prior to giving him his release Sunday. The two players' departure left the Hawks with 13 players as they prepare for their exhibition opener against the Detriot Pistons Wednesday night at Edwardsville High School. Saturday night at Mount Olive Bob Pettit's team edged one headed by Cliff Hagan, 119-117 Big Gene Tormohlen was the hero of the game as he scorec the last eight points of the game swiping the ball in the fading seconds and sinking the winning basket. In all, Tormohlen scor ed 10 points. Pettit led all scorers with 33 points followed by Mike Farmer's 26, Hagan 20, Zol- mo Beaty 27, Bill Bridges 25, Phil Jordan 12, Len Wilkens 18, John Barnhill 16 and Charley Vaughn and Bob Duffy 10 each. Rookie Gerry Ward had nin points as did another rookie, Leland Mitchell. need. They also point out that borrowing by the State, as provided under the Building Authority Bill, means the borrowed funds will have to be paid back someday. It would have been better to pay for additional land as it was purchased. The cigarette money would purchase on a sis. One of the main reasons for the decision to press for re-enactment of the cigarette tax was the need to have sufficient funds to pay off the bonds for projects adopted under the Building Authority Act. After all the bonds can't be sold unless projects are approved by the Authority and are acceptable to bonding houses. Estimated Costs Estimated cost of land acquisition under the Building Authority Act add up to some $2,308,560. Cigarette tax income would have added up to some $13 million in the two year period. Sportsmen eel that the larger sum is a much more realistic figure when the eed for additional recreational and is considered. Speculation on probable accept- :nce of the bonds to finance land mrchases cannot be based on jast experience as there is no ac- ual experience to examine. This s certainly a new method as far is sportsmen are concerned. Some interested sportsmen insist here should be no difficulties to eopardize the process for it is ibvious the price of land is bound o increase and the State backing amounts to a guarantee of repay ment. Others are not so optomis :ic and question whether or no the financing plan will be accept able. Repayment by future gen eral assemblies cannot be relie upon as no one can safely predic what the Illinois legislature is lia ble to do.

Wysowski collected top money of $750 in the $5,000 tournament over 54 holes Sunday as he nosed out another professional, Al Chandler of Columbia, Mo. Wysowski finished with a one- under-par 71 for a 211 total. Chandler fell to a 75 on the final round and finished in a three- way tie with two amateurs for second place, each with a 212 total.
