Section B Pages 1 to ALTON EVENING TELEGRAPH Established Jan. 15, 1836 ALTON, ILL., SATURDAY, JUNE 29, 1968 Price lOd Member Associated Bunning Turns on Old Philly Mates, 10-1 Don Plarski Sports Editor Here and There * * . Fred Carr, Ron Yary, Kevin Hardy and Haven Moses will be the outstanding rookies In pro football in 1968, according to a poll of 22 National and American Football League player personnel directors. The personnel directors, in response to a questionnaire asking them to name and rate the 35 top prospects in the pro football draft, made Carr, Yary, Hardy and Moses the only unanimous selections. Carr, a 6-5, 235-pounder, impressed the scouts with his speed, strength, quickness, desire, aggressiveness and willingness to play with injuries. The University of Texas at El Paso star, drafted first by the Green Bay Packers, can play tight *nd or. linebacker. Yary, the 6-5, 261-pound All-America from the University o f Southern California, is expected to move directly into the Minnesota Vikings' lineup as a starter at offensive guard. "He's the kind of guy you want to lead those third-and-two p?ays," agree the scouts. The 6-5, 280-pound Hardy of Notre Dame, the number one draft choice of the New Orleans Saints, can be a tremendous defensive end or tackle, according to the experts. "However, he doesn't go all out all the time," they caution. "But when he does, watch out." Moses, the 6-2^, 200-pounder from San Diego State, was rated the best college receiver draftable last year. The Buffalo Bills, who picked him first in the draft, feel he has great moves and hands, and is a clutch player who will catch long passes in a crow'd. Other players highly rated in the poll are Tennessee A&I defensive end Claude Humphrey (Atlanta Falcons), who received mention on 21 of the 22 questionaires; offensive end Dennis Homan of Alabama (Dallas Cowboys), 20 votes; defensive back Jim Smith of Oregon (Washington Redskins), 20 votes, and center Bob Johnson of Tennessee (Cincinnati Bengals), 19. * * * • Lewis College, Western Illinois University, Greenville College and Eastern Illinois University were the top four baseball tc-ams in N.A.I.A. district 20 (Illinois) during, the past season. Western Illinois coached by Guy Ricci, won the district championship by defeating Lewis in a best of three series. The Flyers from Lockport had the best won-lost record however, with 33 wins and 10 losses. Western finished with a 23 and 17 mark. Greenville College of the Prairie College Conference won 19 games and lost eight while Eastern Illinois, second place team in the I.I.A.C., captured 18 contests against seven defeats. Western's Leathernecks represented the district in the area 6 playoffs at Defiance, Ohio, wtiere they eliminated the Indiana champions, Taylor College and host school, Defiance University, bffore losing to Eastern Michigan in the title game. The best baseball records in NAIA district 20 included: lewis College (33-10). Western Illinois (23-17), Greenville College (19-8), Eastern Illinois (18-7), Augustana (16-8), McKendree (15-4), Lake Forest (10-6), Illinois Wesleyan (13-9), Rockford (9-3), Millikin (9-5), Aurora (8-11), and George Williams College (6-10). * * * * Capt. John Havlicek of the Boston Celtics used to do the '0-yard dash in 4.6 seconds, without pads, when he was working out with the Cleveland Browns a few years ago. Olympic sprint champ Bob Hayes of the Dallas Cowboys does the distance in 4.5, to give you an idea how fast Big John moves down *he court for the Celtics. John didn't play football at Ohio State, but in his trial with the Browns he was the last receiver cut in 1962. It was Havlicek or Gary Collins at that point, and Collins had a no-cut contract. Havlicek played baseball well enough in high school to be approached by the New York Yankees, the Cleveland Indians, Pittsburgh Pirates and the Baltimore Orioles. He played a different infield position each of his four years in high school, moving from first to second to third and finally to shortstop in his senior season. * * * * McKendree College of Lebanon captured the team batting and fielding titles in N.A.I.A. district 20 baseball statistics. McKendree, with a record of 15 wins and four losses, compiled a team batting average of .293 and a fielding average of ,966 for the 1968 season. Illinois Wesleyan finished With a .272 average for second place honors in the batting race. Other leading teams in the n'tting department included Eastern Illinois, .266; Rockford College .261, and Western Illinois University, .256. The second best fielding average was recorded by Augus- tana College with .954 followed by Western Illinois, .952; Eastern Illinois, .951, and Greenville College, .950. Dommers New Champ In Gals 9 Golf QUINCY, 111. (AP) - Mrs. Paul Dommers, 42-year-old wife of a Belvidere physician and mother of two teenagers, is the Illinois State amateur golf champion. She won medalist honors last Monday with a 2-over-par 75 on the tricky Quincy Country Club course, then continued to win the championship Friday with a 3 and 1 victory over Lois Drafke. , Miss Drafke, 30, an office manager from LaGrange, was turned aside in a bid for her eighth stnte title. She last won it in 1966 Mrs. Doinmers, runnerup in the meet last year, won it in 1957 and 1961. In Friday's semifinals, Mrs. Dommers advanced to the afternoon showdown by defeating Mrs. Thomas Donahue of Waukegan 5 and 3. Miss Drafke moved uo with a 3 and 1 triumph over Mrs. Charles Ryan of Quincy. In the finale, Miss Drafke won the first two holes, but Mrs. Dommers had squared the match after the first nine as both shot 3-over-par 39. Mrs. Dommers parred the 10th and 12th to go 2-up then lost the 13th when she was trapped. Mrs. Dommers, a 1947 University of Iowa graduate, again went 2-up with a par on the 501-yprd 16th. She closed out the match sensationally on the 175-yard 17th by planting her tee shot four feet from the pin and holing the putt for a deuce.

I wasn't bothered about what >eople had said about my pass- ng," Beban said, "But I wanted o do something about it. 'I'm satisfied now," added he dark-haired youngster who ill play in the College All-Star ame in Chicago later this sum- ner before joining the Washing- on Redskins of the National ^ootball League. Beban hit on 15 of 20 passes or 222 yards and two touch- owns, and his second scoring strike cracked a 20-20 tie in the game watched by a crowd of 21,120 in 80-degree weather. The go-ahead touchdown was a 44-yard toss to Arizona State's Ken Dyer. Beban had thrown a 29-yard touchdown pass to Tulsa's Rick Eber earlier in the explosive game which started with a 77- yard punt return by Jimmy Smith of Oregon which gave the West a 7-0 lead. Minnesota's John Williams recovered a teammate's fumble in the end zone for another touchdown for the West, and quarterback Billy Stevens of Texas El Paso added the clincher in the final minutes on a one-yar plunge.

Bunts Go Foul, But Angels Win By HAL BOCK Associated Press Sports Writer Bill Rigney has sworn off the bunt. Four times Rigney flashed mnt signs to California batters n the llth inning against Wash- ngton Friday night. And four imes, he got foul balls. So Rig beat the Senators 1-0 without the bunt ... in fact, he beat them in spite of the bunt. The victory completed a sweep for the Angels, who beat he Senators 4-3 in the first game with Jim Fregosi tagging three-run homer. Elsewhere, Oakland trimmed New York 3-2, Minnesota dropped Baltimore 5-2 and Detroit edged Chicago 5-4 in the first game of a doubleheader. The second game was postponed by rain as was Cleveland's game at Boston, Chuck Hinton opened the llth with a walk and Rigney, trying to advance the runner to second, twice gave bunt signs to Don Mincher No luck, but Mincher did work Darold Knowles for a walk. Now with runners at first and second. Rigney gave the bunt sign to Rick Reichardt, who responded with a couple of foul balls. Ready to surrender, Rigney let Reichardt swing away and the Angel slugger lined a double to left center, scoring Hinton Fregosi's homer in the thirc and a run-scoring single by Mincher in the eighth gave the Angels just enough cushion to stand off Mike Epstein's three run poke in the first game. Jack Aker shut off a Yankee rally in the seventh and then es The Athletics bunched singles iy Rick Monday, John Donaldon, Ssl Bando and Reggie ackson for two runs in the ixth Hgainst Stan Bahnsen, hen added another run on Monday's sacrifice fly in the eighth. The Yankees knocked Lew Krausse out in the seventh and ontinued their rally against J aul Lindblad and Ed Sprague >efore Aker struck out Andy Kosco and got Tom Tresh on a ly ball to end it. Harmor Killebrew snapped a ,6-game dry spell with his first home run since June 9, helping :aped another jam in the ninth, aving Oakland's victory over York. Minnesota whip Baltimore. Kil lebrew's 13th of the season wa a two-ran shot. Jim Kaat got ninth innin help from A) Worthington to na down his fifth victory as th streaking Twins won thei fourth straight and 10th in th last 12 games. Mickey Stanley's two ru homer Jn the seventh gave th Tigers their comeback victor against the White Sox. Pete Ward hart hit a two-run shot putting Chicago on top in the top half of the inning. Norm Cash also had a two-run homer for the league-leading Tigers and Ken Berry connected for the White Sox. By DICK COUCH ssoclated Press Snorts Writer The Pittsburgh pennant coup hat became a Philadelphia bar- ain finally swung a little in the Irates' direction ... when Jim unning got in the swing gainst his old pals. Bunning and Woody Fryman, he principals in a multiplayer /inter trade between the Pi- ates and Phillies, pitched gainst each other for the first me this season Friday night at hiladelphia. But the anticipated duel dete- orated into a 10-1 romp for the irates and Bunning, who scat- ered eight hits and knocked in iree runs with a double and single on the way to his first ictory since May 6. Elsewhere in the National ..eague, Houston thwarted New ork's latest bid to reach the 500 mark by trimming the Mets •2, Atlanta blanked Los An- eles 3-0, San Francisco downed incinnati 4-3 and St. Louis lugged the Chicago Cubs 9-5. California swept an American eague doubleheader from Vashington 4-3 and 1-0 in 11 innings, Detroit edged the Chica- White Sox 5-4 before their oubleheader nightcap was ained out, Minnesota beat Bal- imore 5-2 and Oakland nipped he New York Yankees 3-2. !leveland and Boston were ained out. Bunning, whose arrival in 'ittsburgh was looked upon as the salvation of the Pirates' roubled pitching staff, took a 3-9 record and a 3.69 earned run average into his first appearance against his former teammates. Plagued by groin and ankle injuries, the 36-year-old right-hander had lost seven in a row. Fryman, the 28-year-old southpaw who went to the Phil- lies with three others in ex* change for Bunning, had rebounded from a 3-8 season at Pittsburgh by winning 10 of 16 decisions this year. He was 7-0 in Connie Mack Stadium and had a brilliant ERA of 1.81. Right-hander Larry Dierker stymied the Mets, giving up three singles and a run in the first inning and then scattering six more hits the rest of the way. Rusty Staub's two-run double and a sacrifice fly by Doug Rader sent the Astros in front 3-1 in the bottom of the first and they clipped rookie Nolan Ryan for two more runs in the fifth before pulling away on Dierker's run-scoring double in the sixth and Jim Wynn's seventh inning homer. Milt Pappas stopped the Dodgers on four hits, disappointing a Bat Night crowd of 51,747 at Los Angeles. Run-scoring singles by Sonny Jackson and Felipe Alou and Hank Aaron's 15th homer tagged southpaw Mike Kekich with the loss. CHICAGO (8) ABRH ST.
