10 THE REGISTER-NEWS — MT. VERNON, ILLINOIS TUIIPAYi PECEMBHR 3, 19« Texas And Navy On Top lllini Jump To 3rd In Nation To Last On Next Grid Vote By JIM BECKER Associated Press Sporte Writer Texas had a much easier time of it in The Associated Press poll than it had on the field against Texas A&M in its finale. The Longhoms poked the winning touchdown across with little more than a minute to spare against the Aggies on Thanksgiving for a 15-13 decision. The squeake preserved a 10-0 season, anl the No. 1 spot in the next to last Associated Press poll of the season. The final vote will be taken next week, with the national chompionship to the winner. convincing enough to make it convincing enou h to make it unlikely that even a great performance by No. 2 Navy against Army on Saturday will dislodge the Longhorns. Navy has an 8-1 record. Texas drew 42 first-place votes from the 51 sports writers .ind broadcasiers on the special AP panel. Navy got eight and Pitt the other one. On the usual 10-9-S-etc. voting basis, Texas had 485 points to Navy's 432. Below the top two, the personnel was the same but the rankings were shuffled. Illinois jumped from eighth to third with 356 points, on its 13-0 defeat of Michigan State for the Big Ten title and Rose Bowl assignment. Pitt, 31-20 winner over Miami, moved up a notch to fourth. Auburn, 10-8 victor over Alabama, jumped from ninth to fifth. Big Eight champion Nebraska went from seventh to No. 6. Mississipi dropped from third to No. 7 after a 10-10 tie with Mississippi State. Oklahoma climbed from 10th to No. S, after beating Oklahoma State 34-10. Alabama fell from sixth to No. 9, and Michigan State from fourth to No. 10.

Big 10 Cage Teams Are 12 For 12 Big Ten basketball teams had another good night Monday, sweeping aside five non-conference opponents. The league now boasts a 12- for-12 slate in intersectional warfare. In a close call, Ohio State beat back the challenge of stubborn Butler 74-68 to record its 50th consecutive home floor triumph. Michigan rolled over Tulane 73-16, Iowa trounced South Dakota S5-G6, Wisconsin got by Kent State 88-77 and Minnesota nipped Houston 60-58. All-America Gary Bradds sank four free throws in the final 14 seconds lo preserve the Buckeye victory after Ohio State blew a 13-point advantage. Bradds shared scoring honors with Butler's Jeff Blue with 31 each, but unheralded Don DeVoe was the Buckeye hero. DeVoe, who played sparingly as a reserve last year, fired in 18 second half points on eight straight baskets and two free throws to keep Ohio out front. He finished with 26. Four Michigan players were in double figures as the Wolverines romped to their second straight decision. Bill Buntin, playing his first game after sitting out the opener because of a disciplinary suspension, led the victors with 20. Capt. Mike O'Melia tallied 24 points in Wisconsin's triumph over Kent State. The Golden Flashes from Ohio narrowed the score to five points in the waning minutes, but the 5-foot-10 O'Melia, enjoying his finest game, delivered the key baskets to ensure the triumph. Jimmy Rodgers dropped in 17 points to pace Iowa in its opener. The Hawkeyes used a balanced scoring attack to build up a 38-34 halftime edge and then pulled away. Bill Davis' jump shot with nine seconds left brought Minnesota its second straight victory, both on the road. Houston got a basket with 40 seconds remaining to tie the score, but Davis hit from the corner to win the fiercely-contested struggle. The Gophers open at home tonight against Iowa State. In Wednesday action, Illinois plays at home against rugged St. Louis, and Notred Dame visits Indiana. Ramblers Shake 'Em Up Loyola Ragged, But Wins By 38 Points By BOB GREEN I Associated Press Sports Writer It's not particularly unusual or disturbing when a college basketball team looks a little on the ragged side in its season opener. But when a team looks ragged throughout and still rips its opponent by a margin of 38 points thus both unusual and disturbing. Coach George Ireland's Chicago Loyola Ramblers opened their season Monday night with a firm declaration that they're dead serious about repeating as national champions. With four starters returning from the team that upset Cincinnati in the NCAA final and compiled a 29-2 record last season, the Ramblers romped over North Dakota 92-54 and, according to the game report "looked racked throughout." The Ramblers, ranked at the top of The Associated Press' pre-senson poll, simply overwhelmed te visitors in the feature same on a heavy program, The other ranked teams in action also came through on schedule with only a couple of upsets spoiling things for the form players. Probably the foremost among those was the 66-53 surprise Davidson popped on Wake Forest and State College of Iowa's 5S-51 edge over Iowa State. Otherwise, the favorites had thin s pretty much their own way. Fifth-ranked Wichita beat Colorado 71-61, No. 7 Ohio State pulled out a tough 74-68 decision over Butler, No. 8 Michigan romped 73-47 against Tulane, No. 9 Kentucky ran up Its highest total in four years in a 107-91 crushing of Texas Tech and No. 10 Oregon State ripped Washington State 80-66 in a game that had been postponed from the weekend.

Bill Veeck More Than A Showman SPORTING DAZE By JOHN RACKAWAY SPEAKER FOR RAMS It Can Happen Here They told us mat there was a first time for everything, but we didn't believe it. Then M-irion won a South Seven football title, after about 900 years of bringing up the rear, and we were almost convinced. We'll swallow the whole dose when and if the Benton Rangers win the South Seven basketball prize. Benton has never copped the cage banner in 25 years of conference history. Like Marion in football, Benton earned a reputation as perennial basketball doormat. But Coach Rich Herrin put some fire under the Ranger round-ballers and, for the past two years, Benton has bounced the ball in a highly respectable manner. This season Benton looks like a genuine threat. • * * South Seven 7-7 Annually, of course, the South Seven league turns out the toughest nuts to crack in southern Illinois basketball. This year should be no exception. In the first eight games against non - loop opponents, South Seven varsities show seven victories. Mt. Vernon's loss at Alton last Saturday night has been the lone blot on the league slate. Herrin and West Frankfort are 2-0, Centralia and Harrisburg are 1-0, and Mt. Vernon is 1-1. Benton and Marion open tonight with a chance to run the conference mark to 9-1. However, neither club has a soft touch. The Rangers meet the Metropolis Trojans who proved poisonous to South Seven teams last season before falling to Centralia in the opening game of the state tourney at Champaign. Marion hits a Du Quoin club which has exceptional height and considerable experience. But 9-1 or 7-3 after tonight, the South Seven figures to feature a hot race for the 196364 crown. The fur should fly before the finish—and the league should have several solid state hopefuls by tourney time . . . » * • Quick Summing Up Before conference race gets underway, here's a Sporting guess: Centralia or Benton on top . . Benton loses scoring champ Bob Crawford and floor general Larry Saxe from a team which finished strong last season. Crawford was a dandy and will be hard to replace. As one front-line strength in Rich Adkins, 6-7, Wilbur Tennison, 6-4, and Bob Deitz, 6-2. Two-year veteran Warren Watson has nailed a guard post. Tom Gulley and Clark Hunter both with varsity experience, are battling for the fifth spot. * * » At Centralia, Coach Bob Jones is speaking softly about his chances but he's carrying a big stick in the person of holdover Cliff Berger, an honest six-foot-eight . . . It isn't in the cards for Centralia to repeat last year's sensational 34-2 performance (both defeats by one point including the tragic state championship hair-raiser), but Coach Jones has athletes galore, and a sturdy 6-8 guy is murder in the prep ranks. * * * Herrin, Marion and the Rams . . . Thcsc'three clubs are a step behind. Coach Bob Groves is overloaded with guards in his second season at Herrin. Byron Kuehner, 5-11, Artie Phillips, 5-9, and Ivan Cravens, 5-11, could each qualify as an excellent floor general. Up front are the question marks. Mike Seller or is 6-6, Joe Lapinsk't, 6-4, Glenn Reed, 6-2, and Glenn Maiiow, 6-2, but all lack seasoning under South Seven fire Another Coach named Jones Dick, who played his prep at Centralia, takes over for his rookie season at Marion. Coach Jones has four lottcrmen to build on — Mike Forbes, 6-7. Jim Shotton, 6-3, Dallas Grant, 5-9, and Dick Baggett, 6-3. Ron Angel, a 6-4, 222-pounder, will return to athletics after missing football because of a glandular disorder. If he is fully recovered, he could give the Wildcats a huge boost up front. Coach Jones will have to click in Marion's basketball hotbed . . . Mt. Vernon and new Coach Bud Bornman apparently haven't overcome the shock of losing Lanny Shaw to a football knee. The Rams' defense must stiffen if the locals hold their own in South Seven ranks. When Alton hits 91 against you brother, there's a hole in the dike. * * * Harrisburg next — then West Frankfort. . . . Harrisburg lost just two conference games last year, both to Centralia and both close contests. But the Bulldogs lost everybody except 6-3 Guy Lee Turner. One guy can't do it . . . Unless a flock of unknowns come through, Harrisburg can't go far. West Frankfort won its first two starts with a lineup of Harmon Lillian Harmon Harry Sliay, buckflcld cniu-h of the Southern Illinois U. Salukls, will be guest spenker here tomorrow night when the Lions throw their annual football banquet for Coach Frank Chornak and the Rams. Fried chicken and all the trimmings will be on tho Rams* menu nt 7 p.m. at the L&N Cafe. PRO FOOTBALL NOTES TOWN AND COUNTRY LEAGUE High Games—Helen 210; Ann Wicks 171; Henry 169.

CLEVELAND (AP) — Most people know Bill Veeck as the former owner of the Cleveland Indians and an extraordinary showman while an executive for the old St. Louis Browns and Chicago White Sox. Christine Simko, 14, whose right leg was amputated Nov. 11 because of a malignant tumor, now knows Veeck as a friend with whom she has some- ting in comon. Veeck, too, has only one leg. Convalescing at Clevland Metropolitan Hospital, Christine received a letter of encouragement from Veeck, who now lives in Easton, Md. It read, in part, that Veeck decided to write Christine "because there is such a great similarity between our experiences. "You see, I too have but one leg and 1 too had mine removed in Cleveland. I didn't want them lo remove my leg. I had 10 or 11 operations perform ed in a vain attempt to keep it." "1 know exactly the thoughts that are passing through your mind. 'How can one lead a normal life with only one leg? And I'll be a criple, etc.' " "They just aren't so, however," Veeck wrote. "In reality, you can do anything that I you decide you want to, and do j it just about as well as you decide. "If I can be of any help at all in the future, don't hesitate to call. "You see those of us whose feet can only get half as cold have to stick together." Ait Force Up For Gator Bowl JACKSONVILLE, Fla.

The Pittsburgh Steelers, who haven't won since Nov. 10, have remained in contention for the National Football League's Eastern Conference title with two consecutive ties—and three in all—the most by one club since Brooklyn in 1938. If the Steelers go on to win the Eastern crown, it will be their first in the 30 years since the NFL instituted a two- division set-up. Pittsburgh came close in 1947, but lost a plavoff to Philadelphia 21-0. Quote of the week: Honors go to Roosevelt Taylor, the Chicago Boars' speedy defensive back who recovered the fumble that led to the tying touchdown against Minnesota Sunday. Asked his No. 1 theory on cutting down enemy runners, Taylor said: "You have to hit 'em below the knees, take their legs away from them. They can't run without their legs." Angels Deal Leon Wagner For Hurler SAN DIEGO, ealii. (AP) — Convinced their future lies in defense and pitching, the Los Angeles Angels made their first move in that direction by trading power hitter Leon Wagner to the Cleveland Indians for pitcher Barry Latman and another player to be named at a later date. It was the first major trade completed at the annual winter baseball meetings which got under way Monday when the majors drafted a record 63 players at a cost of $691,000. In the only other transaction, the Mew York Mets purchased Bob Taylor from Milwaukee. The 24-year-old catcher-outfielder was paid a $100,000 bonus by the Braves when he signed his first professional contract in 1957. Wagner, 29, hit 63 home runs for the Angels in the last two years, batting .291 in 1963. Latman, 27, was 7-12 with the Indians last season. The Angels were the busiest club in the draft business. They shelled out $99,000 for six players, three veterans at $25,000 each and three first year players at $8,000 apiece. Three of the six were pitchers including Danny Rivas, a left-hander who won 13 and lost seven at Tacoma and Bill Kelo, 14-7 at Salem. In nil there were three ties on the NFL program, with Detroit and Green Bay tying Thanksgiving Day .. . Even more unusual were the two shutouts posted on the American League's four-game program . .. The New York Jets handed the defending league champion Kansas City Chiefs their first in 54 games running through four seasons and one championship game ... San Diego, meanwhile, handed Houston its first shutout in 45 games ... PHILADELPHIA - Jesse Smith, 158, Philadelphia, out­ pointed Gomco Brennan, 157, Bahamas, 10. Len Mathews, 137, Philadelphia, stopped Jose (Chico) Veliz, 135%, Miami Beach, Fla., 8. Active 76'er PHILADELPHIA (AP) — The Philadelphia 76ers of the National Basketball Association announced today the placing on the active roster of Jerry Green- spn, who was Maryland's lead' ing scorer last year. While the big question in the NFL has been who's going to win what, the big question in the' AFL has been why can't Kansas City win? Tho Chiefs, defending league champions, are bogged down at 2-7-2. Jack Faulkner, Denver coach whipped by the Chiefs 59-7 in the season opener, watched Kansas City against the Jets Sunday and offered this reason for their flip-flop: "This is not the same ball club. They must have shipped 'em all overseas somewhere." One of the players, who asked to go unnamed, had a fuller explanation. "So many Texas boys on the club having to pull up roots to move to Kansas City came as quite a shock," he said, "but the worst shock of all was the death of Stone Johnson. That has affected the club more deeply than anyone can imagine." Johnson, a promising rookie and a 1960 Olympian, died of injuries suffered in an exhibition game. His death came two days after the season started—two days after Kansas City showed its ability against Faulkner's Denver team. Dallas And Cards Slow Pro Draft By JOE MOOSHIL Associated Press Sports Writer CHICAGO (AP)—There were grumblings amidst the ranks of the usually tightly-knit National Football League Monday as the annual draft dragged on and on and on into the wee hours of Tuesday. It took eight hours and eight minutes to complete the first round before Commissioner Pete Rozelle put a 30-minute time limit on second round selections. Among those present was George Wilson, coach of the Detroit Lions. Wilson was bitter about five teams who conducted their draft from home including San Francisco, Los Angeles, Baltimore, Dallas and St. Louis. The big tietip was Dallas' Cowboys who took two hours and 39 minutes to select Texas tackle Scott Appleton as their first round choice. St. Louis needed more than two hours to choose Louisville tackle Ken Kortas. "I'd also take my time if I were back home in a big easy chair and doing it by telephone," said Wilson. "Why not, the only guys hurting are the ones that are present. It's getting to a point we're not drafting but we're making sure we can sign players before we draft them." One factor for the delays has been that the rival American Football League drafted Saturday. NFL teams want to make sure their choice haven't already signed with the AFL. Rozelle, certainly aware that the long, drawn-out draft does little to enhance the league in the eyes of the nation's fans, said NITE OWL LEAGUE High Games— N. Troutt 182; P. Kelley - I.

Maybe, But Not To Pros Record-Smashing Passer Is Forgotten Man Of Pro Draft. Fight Results SYDNEY, Australia — Sandro Mazzinghi, 153, Italy, stopped Ralph Dupas, 150'i, New Orleans, 13. Retained Junior Middleweight title. By CHARLES CHAMBERLAIN Associated Press Sports Writer CHICAGO (AP) — In collegiate record books, George Bork will go down as the greatest passer in football. But he has become the forgotten man of tho pros in their player drafts. The American Football League drafted 160 players Saturday. Bork didn't get a single call. The National Football League chose 280 college pTayers Monday and today — but Bork was bypassed. Bork, leading Northern Illinois to an unbeaten 1963 campaign and victory in the Mineral bowl, set 14 all-time passing records. These are tho marks for either university or college division, and for season, career and single games. He tossed 35 touchdown passes this season, and in regular play completed 24-1 out of 374 aerials for 3,077 yards. He became the first passer in history to top 3,000 yards in one season. At least 15 pro clubs sent scouts to look at him. Why was Bork snubbed at draft time "I didn't see him personally, but we had him scouted," said Vince Lombardi, Green Bay Packer coach. "There is no question but that he is an outstanding passer. But he weighs only 170 pounds. He comes from a comparatively small school, and consideration also was taken of the type of competition he faced." Nort hern Coach Howard Fletcher said: "It surprised us when he was passed up by the AFL. They may have gotten the wrong ideas that Bork had made some com­ mittments elsewhere. But he has made none whatsoever. "He is not too disappointed. He is trained in school to be a coach and teacher and can take this up." Bork today was mimed a member of The Associated Press Little All-America football team for 1963, the only repeater from a year ago. The 21-year-old Bork says he has tried to put on weight "with a mash potato kick" this season. "But from football, I go right into basketball, and it seems I haven't got the time to take it easy and put on weight," he grinned. "I'm on the go too much. I would like to play pro football, but it I don't get the chance, I'll go in for coaching." Bork's final appearance as a collegian will be in the North- South game in the Orange Bowl at Miami. something will be done about the situation when the league meets Jan. 28 in Miami, Fla. FULL SCHEDULE TONIGHT Pros Prefer Jolly Roger By HAROLD CLAASSEN Associated Press Sports Writer NEW YORK (AP) — George Bork, Northern Illinois' fantastic passer, and 10 other seniors make up the Associated Press Little All-America football team for 1963. Bork, the human howitzer who rewrote the record book with his tosses, is the only repeater from n year ago. The 1963 all-star aggregation is one of the few during the 30-year history of the Utile All-America to be made up cntirly of seniors. Bracketed in the backfield with Bork are Mike Brown, wheel-horse of Delaware's unbeaten team; Sid Banks of Texas A&I, and Martin Luther Agnew, the 198-pound avalanche from Sewanee who soon will enter the ministry. In front of them is the biggest and most agile line in the history of the Little All-America, restricted to tennis whose competition is defined as minor or at the college level by the NCAA as contrasted with the university level where such headline hunters as Alabama, Texas, and Washington prowl. It is the colleges' schedules that are minor, not their athletes. The big line boasts two skyscraping ends in Bob Cherry of Whittenberg and Jerry Cole of Southwest Texas. They are supported by Paul Graham of Massachusetts and Neil Router of North Dakota, rated the best lineman in the North Central Conference, at tackles; Ralph Bauman of Puget Sound and Greg Van Ordcn of Appalachian at tho guard with Dick Dean of Depauw at center. Dean is rated the best center in Indiana, despite such nearby majctf teams at Notre Dame, Indiana and Purdue. The players on the forward wall average 6-1, weigh 208 pounds to the man and are just over 21 years of age. Cherry is the team's tallest at just a fraction over 6-4 and also the lightest at 187 pounds. Graham, whose Massachusetts team tied Harvard and beat all the remainder of its opponents, is the heaviest at 234 while Bauman is the shortest at 5-10. The backfield also averages 6-1 and 21 years of age but displaces only 192 pounds on the average. Bork completed his collegiate career holding 14 national passing records and responsible for two team marks. During Northern Illinois' nine straight vie- tories during the regular season he completed 214 of 374 aerial attempts for 32 touchdowns and 3,077 yards, an average of 341.9 yards a game. All are records. During his career h» threw 902 times and hit his target on 577 of those occasions. These also are records. If the Little All-America could be put on the field, one of Bork's prime targets likely would be Cherry, who grabbed 45 pitches for 886 yards and 13 touchdowns at Wittenberg. Brown averaged 6.3 yards each time he carried the ball for Delaware and finished the season with a spectacular 104.8 rushing yards a game average. Banks made the A—I attack click with his running and pass catching as a flanker while through an unbeaten season by being the team's offensive leader for the third straight year. Lebanon Upsets Christian In Local Church League Lebanon upset previously unbeaten Christian, First Baptist bumped arch-rival Free Will, and Summersville trimmed Epworth in Church League clashes played at the Bethel Gym last night. Christian, with most of its starters benched because of the eligibility rules, was the victim of a 29-28 upset at the hands of twice-beaten Lebanon in the first game. Steve Sledge led the Lebanon five with 14 and Howard Creed netted six. John Wall tallied 12 and Bruce Wolfe added ten for Central. In the second tilt, First Baptist's Flyers upended Free Will Baptist, 43-26, in the traditional game between the loop's annual lower division finishers. Louis Grothoff pumped in 18 for the Flyers and teammate Don Petersen chipped in with 11. Roy Payne drilled 15 of the losers' 26 points. Summersville improved its season mark to 3-1 by clipping Epworth, 43-39, in the finale. Arthur Ellis took game scoring honors for Summersville with 25 points.
