WEDNESDAY, SEPTEMBER, 25, 1963 ALTON EVENING TELEGRAPH PAGE TWENTY-ONE Midwest Briefs Indiana Has Northwestern Worried; Illinois Passes CHICAGO (AP) — Midwest Football Briefs: Northwestern—Coach Ara Parseghian admits Indiana has his Wildcats guessing for Saturday's Big Ten opener. "We'll ,have to prepare our defense on a broad basis and be ready for any kind of attack," he said. Indiana—Warning the Hoosiers that Northwestern is "50 per cent better than last year," Phil Dickens pushed his team through a full speed drill on offense. Wisconsin — Devoting the entire workout to offense against Notre Dame defenses, the Badgers went through a semi-contact drill. Coach Milt Bruhn said the squad is* in excellent physical condition. Notre Dame—Coach Hugh Devore shifted senior George Bednar back to guard and tested several backfleld men at tackle, by injuries, switched to tackle when Dave Humenik and Gene Penman were lost for the season with knee injuries. Illinois—Reserve quarterbacks Dick Dorr and Mario Campanaro fired passes at Illinois' secondary in preparing the team's defense for the California opener. California passer Craig Morton has the Illini worried. Ohio State—The probably starting backfield of Mart Snell, Paul a position ripped Bednar had been Warfield, Don Uhverferth and Tyrone Barnett worked on defense against Texas A&M plays. The second team worked on offense against the third team. Michigan — Senior Dave Kurtz was switched from right guard to left guard as the Wolverines continued to work against speed. Southern Methodist is said to have its fastest team in five years. Purdue— Gary Hogan quarterbacked the No. 1 backfield which also included Tom Fugate, John Kuzniewski and Dick Dauch. Ron Di Gravio led the No 2 backfield which also included Randy Minniear, Gordon Teeter and Gene Donaldson. Iowa—Coach Jerry Burns indicated Fred Riddle will be his starting quarterback against Washington State. Tackle Gus Kasapis resumed full drills after being hampered with an infected elbow. Minnesota—The Gophers practiced in the rain and on a slippery turf just in case it should be wet for their opener against Nebraska. No injuries were reported. Michigan State—After going through a light snappy workout, Coach Duffy Daugherry told the Spartans there will be no more contact this week. "The next hitting -will be against North Carolina Saturday," he said. Ottawa Expected To Dominate Again Another in a series on 1963 II- bowing to Ottawa. Unois prep football conferences) Colburn has nine letter-winners North Central III. including speedster Jim Wallace By BRUCE RICHARDSON at halfback. Dixon (111) Telegraph The other three schools have a Sports Editor wealth of experienced talent and Dixon, III. (AP) — Hotly con-;could give the top two a run for tested races in both divisions of the North Central Illinois Conference will get underway Friday night with ten of 11 league teams in action. As can be expected highly-touted Ottawa, owning a 27-game winning streak, has been picked by league coaches to win a fifth straight northwest division title. Rochelle, last year's champion in the southwest circuit, has been selected to repeat but stiff challenges can be expected from both Hall Township and Princeton. The northeast division is playing with one less squad this year. DeKalb's withdrawal last year created the vacancy and La- SallfeiPeru, now of the* Big Eight, will join Ottawa, Dixon, Slreator, Kewanee and Sterling during the 1964-65 season. The southwest division is still intact with Rochelle, Princeton Mendota, Geneseo, Rock Falls and Hall of Spring Valley holding down the spots. 'Ottawa's Pirates under Bill Novak in his 17th season have looked impressive in the first two 1963 games. They opened two weeks ago with a 26 to 6 victory over LaSalle and followed it up with a 38 to 6 shelling of Mendota last Friday. The victory over LaSalle was costly as John Price, 170-pound veteran fullback, was sidelined for one to three weeks. The Pirates with three other lettermen in the backfield didn't miss him .Friday as senior Tom GOLFING NOTES the championship. Dixon has 18 lettermen, Streator 16 and Kewanee 9. While Rochelle, 8-0 in 1962, lost 20 of 29 lettermen through graduation, coach Ed Bender has come up with another top-flight unit. Bender's mainstay in the backfield is senior all-stater Augie Eckhardt. Rochelle won easily last Friday at Dixon, 41-21, but had to settle for a 13-13 tie with Sycamore two weeks ago. Hall Township's Dale Pienta has a big and rugged group with 19 lettermen, including 254 pound lineman Jim Krolak. Rated a darkhorse in the southwest is Princeton with a veteran line and an experienced backfield of four lettermen. SEASON FINALE The Greater Alton Women's Golf Association closed Its season at Rock Spring Golf Course Tuesday with a throw - out - high three - holes tourney. Mrs. James Dooley and Mrs. Lee Wrest tied in the championship flight event while Mrs. Edna Parton won low net.

Table Hock Lake Visit If you were to cast the shoreline for one mile a day for eight years, you could circle Table Rock Lake, one of Missouri's newest and largest recreational Lakes about 50 miles south of Springfield. How many fish you would catch with such a casting program probably ;Rtver Ripples^ and Outdoors With Harold Brand former SIU student here at Alton. The resort is near Kimberling Bridge area where the crappie were biting on a time schedule. The water is 125 feet deep under one of the bridge piers and crappie are caught there at the 25-ft. level. But the fish were biting only during the hours of from mid- also would reach a staggering fig- night until 3 a.m. ure. The blue water lake erratically stretches out 80 miles near the Arkansas line but its innumerable picturesque coves and fingers jive it the lengthy shoreline. The mpoundment is only four years old and was created by the U. S. Corps of Engineers by damming up the White River. The rivers were noted for their wonderful fishing before the lake was filled. Even though the lake is so young, hundreds of brand new modern resorts have been built. There are very few local residents in that rugged country, we were told during our attendance with Wade Gcrgen of Wood River at the Great Lakes Outdoors Writers meeting there last weekend in Holiday Inn, Kimberling City. Practically All Newcomers "The area is well populated but by persons from other areas who came here to invest in the recreational development of the lake, said Ken Carney, Branson, Mo., editor of the Outdoor Times and an enthusiastic one-man chamber of commerce for Table Rock Lake. We made one important observation during our tour of the area, the hospitality of the people exceeds the size of the Lake. We were scheduled to many meetings giving us little fishing time. But we did manage to tour and observe the area. Ernie .Nevel, operator of the Boy's Sho-Me baseball camp, on the Blue Water area of the Lake, showed us the camp, Table Rock Dam, a iish hatchery and other interesting sights in the Ozark hills around the lake. We spent three days at Kimberling Cove Resort, Reeds Spring, Mo., operated by Mr. and Mrs. Gary Robinson. Robinson is Best Bass Lure We observed numerous boats anchored under the bridge and the next day saw several ice :hests full of huge crappie taken here. Other ice chests held huge walleye and bass taken by angers who had time to fish. The Dest lethal lure for bass was the Rapala, a topwater lure of stogie ength. The lure resembled a shad on which the bass feed. Similar ures were not quite so effective as the Rapala, an import from Sweden. We moved to the Twin Oaks Resort, Reeds Spring, Mo., on the Blue Water area for our last night on the lake. The resort is operated by Mr. and Mrs. Virgil Bidenhour of Granite City, who built their resort three years ago. Ridenhour built five all-modern double bedroom cottages. The area is 5% hours drive from Alton. Mrs. Ridenhour, also bubbling over with hospitality, arranged for us to try a few hours of early morning fishing with Major Clois Large, retired from the U. S. army and now an occasional fishing guide. Major Large took us to his favorite areas of the lake. Other Attractions We tried casting for some time and received several strikes but were unable to hook or even see our quarry. Then we tried fishing using crawdads for bait off some of the lakes deep points. Again we didn't do too well but were tolc by Major Large that the best fishing begins in October. "The lake never freezes over, not even during last years' severe winter, said Major Large, who has resided on the lake since 1960. There are many other recrea tional attractions in the lake area Suburban Tops Bowl Haven Scratch Loop Suburban Lanes blasted out a U37 series and stretched its lead n the Bowl Haven Scratch league o four games Monday night.

The Bowl Haven NEW YORK (AP)— Forced into n early-soason shift in manpower i thoir quest for a third straight Eastern Division title in the Na- onal Football League, the New brk Giants have traded reserve uarterback Ralph Guglielmi. Tho well-traveled former All- \merica from Notre Dame was ent to the San Francisco 49ers Tuesday along with a 1963 draft hoice for defensive back Eddie 3ove.

He spent 1961 vith St. Louis, then was swapped o the Giants.

Tough Course In Ireland NEWCASTLE, Ireland (AP)"This is a tough course, especially when the wind is blowing, but my driving is helping me a lot," American Curtis Cup golfer Jo- Anne Gundcrson said today as she prepared for the third round of the British Women's Amateur Championship, Thirty-two players, including Miss Gunderson of Providence, R.I., Judy Bell of Colorado Springs, Colo,, and Mrs. Anne Stranahan of Toledo, Ohio, were left in the field of 32 survivors after Tuesday's first two rounds Miss Gunderson, 24 had a first- round bye and then swept into the third round with a 5 and 4 victory over Elizabeth Collis of Britain.
