MONDAY, JULV 1, 1968 ALTON fiVBN JNG tfcL^GRAPH A.11 Meeting in England Southern Cai O C7 TT_ 1VT Q* John Stetson Another Boat parade and blessing of the Fleet to launch National Safe Boating Week (and hopefully safe summer) came t6 the Mississippi River at Portage Des .Sioux Sunday. Its most amazing aspect we thought was the coordinalion. Any time you get 300 plus boats coming down one area of the river in a procession with thousands .of people watching from-the shoreline you need coordination or else. • . !Wie Coast Guard and x Coast Guard Auxiliary again did a truly fine job in carrying off what .has become the biggest single event for boaters during the boating season. To the non-boater this doesn't seem like any great accomplishment, but with out the united efforts of the Coast Guard groups, the individual harbor operators and the boat operators themselves such an event could be utter chaos. The fact that the parade and blessing ceremony keeps increasing each year is testimony enough that the people like it and are willing to show the responsibility to make it a success. As a judge for the boat parade our hat goes off to H. M. Matteson.

Spring and summer brings new hope to all men. It also brings the hucksters who paripy that hope into cash, with miracle bass lures, quick- bearing tomato plants, and crab grass ki'ler. Until Mte,y the upland bird hunter was left out. Nothing in the spring business boom was calculate' to capture his imagination and spare cash. But tMs has changed. Across our desk has come a note from a British game breeder announcing a new hybrid bame bird which was developed by artificial insemination in northern Italy after years of experiment. : It is said to'look like'a miniature grouse, fly like a snipe* taste Ilk" a woodcock, and weigh one-third of a pound The b'.rd breeds non-stop from April to September and its clutch of 12 to 18 eggs hatches in a little over two weeks. The chicks are on their own at only three wcpks of age, and may set up housekeeping at seven weeks. T his means that chicks from the first spring brood could reproduce by October. Trembling with eagerness, we calculated that one pair of birds could produce between three and four hundred "miniature grouse" for that fall's hunting. This miacle of fecundity occurs partly because the males 'Ortiz Loses Light Crown To Teo Cruz SANTO DOMINGO, Dominican Republic (AP) — There was confusion over the scoring but it was abundantly clear today that Teo Cruz was the new lightweight cHampion of the world. The 29-year-old Dominican ita- tive berame the first fighter from his rountry to win a world title by outpointing Carlos Ortiz, Puerto R'can-born New Yorker, in 15. rounds early Sunday. The decision was first announced as unanimous, then changed to split, then back to unanimous and once again to a split verdict. Finally, it was announced that referee Zach Clay- Ion of Philadelphia favored Ortiz 131-130. Judge Jose.A. Soto had it 145-142 and the other judge, Carlos Lugo, 146-121, both for Crux "It was my best fight ever," said Cruz. frown on summer vacations. They keep busy, those males. As soon as the chicks leave home at the tender age of three weeks, the male bird drives mama back to the nest for a new round of domestic duty. These are rugged birds, and are reported to take dust baths In snowdrifts, which ain't easy. They adapt to a wide range of habitat and can be stocked in "field edges, parklands, aerodromes, weedy market gardens, and even golf courses." The last possibility could create a hundred new golf jokes. The game could stand some new jokes. Now conies the hook. The eggs are very fragile and can't" be shipped. Same with newly hatched chicks. You will have to settle for birds up to five weeks old, which are nat urally more expensive. It's spring again, and the sucker- snaggin? season is in full sway. But if any of you are interested, we'll share our contact for this new miracle game bird. Decides Pros' Fate WiMBEDON, England (AP)Ileher, president of the U.S. LTA - The lush and dignified Wimbledon courts this week will see some fierce skifmishjng in a battle to allow professionals to play Davis Cup tennis. The International Council of the Davis Cup meets in London this Wednesday. One of the terns they will argue will be just that—now professionals can )lay in the world's greatest tournament, why can't they play in the Davis Clip'as well? Bill Edwards, president of the Australian Lawn Tennis Association, is all in favor of the dea. "Now that open tennis has arrived, we would try extending t to the Davis Cup," said an ALTA spokesman.

Linda Marmino was the winning first-game pitcher, yielding six hits, two walks and struck out three. Esther Kelly was the loser, allowing 13 hits, five walks and she fanned one. Kay Hyten,, Jo Cornine and Mickey Dergance each had three hits for the winners. Cathy Marquis pitched the Royals' second triumph, giving up eight hits, three walks anc striking out one. Sharon Bearden was the loser, permitting nine hits, seven walks and fanning one. Linda Burns and Dergance had a pair of safeties for the Wood River ciub. We don't think the time is ripe, Ithough we aren't against it In rincipte," he said. Both sides are taking up their oslllons and the reason is plain —three U.S. amateurs are in he last 16 of the Wimbledon hampionshlps this year, while nly two Australian amateurs ached the last 32, and both ave been knocked out. That's the reason Donald Dell, aptain of this year's U.S. flavls Up team, is walking around ith a king-size smile on' his ace.

HOUSE FURNIfHIN* n the game in Australia. The best Aussie playefs—Ken Rosewall, fton Laver, Roy Emerson, John Newcombe and Tony Roche—are all professional now and there just don't seem to be any good youngsters coining up. It was Graebner and Edlefsen who were the talking points of the Wimbledon crowds as the rain*plagued tournament reached the halfway stage in brilliant sunshine Saturday. Graebner, the U.S. No. 4 from New York, has been showing some of the best power tennis of the tournament. He pounded Jurgen Ulrlch of Denmark Into submission in the second round, then pulled off one of Saturday's three upsets by beating sixth- seeded Manuel Santana of Spain, the winner here . two years ago, 9-7, 6-2 6-10. That put Graebner in the last 16, where he will Ipay Fred Stolle, the towering Australian profession al seeded No. 11. Edlefsen, from Berkeley, Cal If,, is Unranked in the United Sates—he didn't play last year because of iUness—but he scored an equally fine victory by beating Cliff Drysdale, the South African professional seed' ed 14th, 9-7, 4-6, 1-6, 6-4, 6-4. He next plays Ray Moore, the South African who also scored an upset 4-6, 6-3, 8-3, 2-8, 8-2 Victory over Andreas Gimeno, the Spanish pro. in the last 16 Ashe plays New. combe, who won here last year and then turned pro.

Simpson," the boss of the Trojans must have been thinking of Jim Jones. At least that's what a number of coaches believe. Jones, a quarterback at John Harris High in Harrisburg, Pa., who threw 35 touchdown passes for a new Pennsylvania high school record last season had of* fers from 112 schools. He picked Southern California, and he'll probably have no trouble making the freshman team this fall. In two years of high school football Jones, a Negro of 180 pounds and almost 6-feet-l, racked up 4563 yards and figured in 59 touchdowns. "Jim Jones is a great kid," says George Chaump, his high school coach who now helps coach quarterbacks for Woody Hayes at Ohio State. "He has unique ability in passing and running and can throw a ball 50 yards while on the run without breaking stride. He ought to be great." "I used to get a dozen calls a night," says Chaump, "because ic course and also senior class president. "1 wish Jim were at Ohio State now, but. as a Junior he seemed to be set on Southern Cal. Last March he went out there and I've heard that John McKay went to Harrisburg to see Jones for himself." Chaump really had Jim Jones for only two seasons because the all-around athlete broke his collarbone as a sophomore. His neck was in and out of a cast for nine months and he was not permitted to play on defense as a junior or senior. Around Harrisburg it, has been said that Chaump designed an offense similar to the Southern Cal attack. And if that doesn't help, McKay may change his system to fit the boy. Jones is that good, whether passing or running. • Southern Cal fans will have to wait until 1969, however, because O.J. Simpson will be back next fall when Jim Jones is a freshman. Wade Blasingame, who won 16 games in 1965, won only three for the Atlanta Braves last season and is hoping to make a comeback.
