Ditka made his comment after owner-coach George Halas herdec his squad into the training room at Soldier Field to watch the game film of last Sunday's 31-10 Green Bay victory over the De troit Lions. The unbeaten Bears are at Detroit Sunday. "We wanted every man on the squad to see the fierceness o evei-y play, whether on offense or defense," said Halas. The usual procedure in viewing movies is to divide the squad into offensive and defensive units for specialized scrutiny of (he game PROBABLE PITCHERS By THE ASSOCIATED PRESS American League Cleveland (John 0-2) at Kansas City (Drabowsky 7-12) (N) Only game scheduled National League New York (Willey 9-14) at Los, Angeles (Podres 1441) (N) Philadelphia (Green 7-4) at San Frandsoo (O'Dell 13-10) Pittsburgh (Gibbon 5-11) at Houston (Nottebart 10-8) (N) Only game* Willie Mays Challenges Bat Leaders By JIM HACKLEMAN Associated Press Sports Writer Watch Willie Mays, baseball's wunciest convalescent. He may be the first guy to win a batting itle with an off-year. The San Francisco Giants' cen- er fielder, who fought through a protracted slump and then was orced into a four-game layoff with nervous exhaustion early this month, is on a hitting tear. Willie went 4-for-4 Wednesday— a triple, two doubles and a single —although the Giants were beaten jy Philadelphia 6-4, and powered limself right into the middle of the scrap for the National League jatting title. Mays was hitting .301 when he was sidelined, and in a phenomenal climb since then he has raised his average to .317. He's currently on a 13-game hitting streak, 25-for-53 and a .472 clip. Ahead of Mays in the scramble :or the batting crown are: Defending champion Tommy Davis of the pennant-winning Los Angeles Dodgers—he's at .323 after two singles in three trips in a 1-0 triumph over the New York Mets. Sandy Koufax won his 25th in that one, and became the fourth pitcher in major league history to strike out 300 in one season. Dick Groat of St. Louis—batting .320 after two hits in five tries as the second-place Cardinals ended a six-game losing string by beating the Chicago Cubs 5-2. Orlando Cepeda of the Giants- whacked a three-run homer in four appearances and has a .319 mark. His blow was matched by a three-run pinch hit homer by Don Demeter and a two-run shol by Johnny Callison in a seventh inning rally that gave the Phils the victory. Hank Aaron of the Milwaukee Braves—got his 43rd homer for a .318 average, helping Warren Spahn beat the Cincinnati Reds 9-5. Spahn, 22-7 for the year and with 349 victories in a magnificen' career, also homered. And Roberto Clemente of the Pittsburgh Pirates—went l-for-4 In a 2-1 defeat at Houston and slipped to .318. The Colts took this one with a two-ran uprising in the sev enth after being blanked on two hits by Tom Sisk through six. New York's American League champion Yankees took only one hour and 38 minutes t9 dispose ol the Ix>s Angeles Angels 3-1. Hard throwing Jim Bouton wanned up for a World Series start with f seven-inning workout for his 21s victory, allowing three hits and facing only 15 men in his last five innings. Bob Saverine, in his last game before starting a six-month Army hitch, got three hits and battec in two runs in leading Baltimore to a 10-2 romp over Chicago White Sox rookie Gary Peters was rocked in his bid to become a 20-game winner. River and Outdoors With Harold Brand Bountiful Private Waters A private lake near Mozier produced more than 30 fish Saturday evening for Mr. and Mrs. Everett Jlowers, East Alton, and Ralph Noble, Highland Ave. The, group ished for 8 a.m. until 4 a.m. and then headed for home. 'Our score included 22 catfish, eight carp, a perch, bluegill, a white perch, and a seven-pound dogfish," Mrs. Glowers said. "Our dog loves dogfish which I cook or him. The mosquitoes weren't oo bad but it turned cold at midnight. We lost several large fish when our 22-pound test leaders aroke." Brought Home Trout A tagged fish catching contest among the members of the Missouri Trout Fishing Assn. last weekend at Montauk State Park, Mo., attracted about 600 persons, reported Bert Cashen, 3300 Kendall Ave. Cashen, his wife, and son and daughter-in-law, Mr. and Mrs. Terry Cashen of St. Louis and Mr. and Mrs. Leo Pohlman of Godfrey, took more than 25 trout averaging up to 1% pounds "We didn't take any tagged fish but the contest wasn't open to the public," Cashen said. "All fish were taken on artifical lures because no live bait is permitted.' Scored Grapple The Lake Norfolk Fishing letter reports that John Bitter of Alton recently scored 10 crappie there on a bomber lure. Tennesee Report A report from Reelfoot Lake Tenn., given by the Boardman Resort, at Hornbeak states tha guides and guests are bringing in from 100 to 150 crappie. The lake is clear and plenty of stumps are showing which the crappie hang around in the fall. The Boardmans say that fishing wil continue to be good there until December. Type of Lure to Use Its always a problem to figure out on what lure to use in the limited time an angler has for his sport. Here is a percentage tabulation by Sam Welch of the Ozark Fisherman from fish taken in Bull Shoals Lake and the White River: Jigs and eels 25.1 x per cent; spinner lures 27.3; underwatei plugs 13.0; live bait (minnows and crawfish) 13.4; surface lures 6.1; plastic worms 13.3; baits unknown .8; and spoons 1.0.

The seriousness of the situation was highlighted recently when the city and Board of Education officials in Toledo, Ohio, and Milwaukee announced that all night games Involving high school teams were being abandoned. The schools were ordered to play in the afternoon. The Toledo action was taken after a series'of fights broke out following a Friday night game. Four policemen were hurt in the disturbance. The Milwaukee City Council switched all games to Saturday afternoon because of what it called "unwarranted attacks and acts of vandalism." Officials said no racial or religious problems apparently were involved. Night high school play was banned in Providence, R.I., where officials said a major factor was 'rowdyism, fights and vandalism." Bridgeport, Conn., ended night high school games after a 14-year-old boy was stabbed. Chi- TELEGRAPH PICKS After hitting 76 per cent for the first weekend of the prep grid season, TELEGRAPH PICKS could only manage 10 of 18 last week for 55 per cent. In a week of upsets PICKS missed the Calhoun- Wentzville, Carrollton-Pavvnee, Edwardsyille-Cathedral, Belleville - Assumption, Quincy - Cbllihsville, North Greene - Triopia, Winchester - Pittsfidd and Highland- Vandalia games. ,, ' . For two weeks PICKS has correctly picked 23 of 35 for 66 per dent. . ' \ . Once again, this coming weekend could be one of upsets and PICKS feels uneasy about the Lincoln (ESL)-Marquette, Colllnsville-Granite City, Jerseyvllle-Carlinville and Pleasatot Hill-Winchester choices. . Both Marquette and Lincoln have young teams in a rebuilding year and anything could happen Friday night at 8 o'clock on the Public School Stadium gridiron. - - - ' ~" Alton 0 Wood River ..........14 Marquette 13 Calhoun 0 Granite City 13 Civic Memorial 6 Carrollton ,.-..« 13 Quincy ......... k • i «• • JerseyvlUe V.......

In New York, where there are hundreds of high schools, only about three per cent play games at night and these are almost al- ways at the suggestion of an outside rival. To play a night game, it is necessary to get special permission from the school board- given only when trouble is not likely to occur. Whitey Ford Houk'sPick In Opener NEW YORK (AP)—New York Yankee left-hander Whitey Ford, baseball's biggest World Series winner, will pitch the first game of the 1963 October classic, probably against Los Angeles' Sandy Koufax, at Yankee Stadium next Wednesday. Yankee left-hander Al Downing and flght-hander Jim Bouton will pitch the second and third games for the Yankees, manager Ralph Houk said today In making known his series plans. He did not specify the order of pitchers for the second and third games. Hotik said he would depend on just three starters, thus assigning Ralph Terry, pitching hero of the Yankees' 1962 World Series triumph, over San Francisco, to bullpen duty. i Houk also said he planned to play his eight regulars, including Mickey Mantle and Roger Marls, In every game without resorting to platooning. "I'hi going to go with the pitchers who have done the best Job during the regular season," the Yankee skipper said. The same starting line-up which defeated the Giants fr seven games last October will open against Los Angeles regardless of who pitches for the Dodgers. Don Dubro, 21, of St. Louis has four sanctioned series of 800 to his credit, one short of the record shared by Hank Marino, Ray Bluth and Lindy Faragalll. Dubro's 846 last Jan. 10 was the ninth highest series on record.
