By DALE SIELAFF
The loss of twenty lettermen, a
crop of untried sophomores, a
lengthened ten game schedule,
and a disappointing fourth place
1964 finish add up to headaches
for the Fighting Illini of Illinois
in 1965.
Coach Pete Elliott has set about
rebuilding his team, '63 Big Ten
champs, around 11 letterwinners,
most of whom are in the back-
field.
Headed by All-American full-
back Jim Grabowski, Elliott has
his entire offensive backfield re-
turning. Grabowski led the Big
Ten in rushing last fall with 723
yards for a 5.2 average. At 6-2,
215, the tough senior is being
tabbed for repeat All-America
honors this year.
Good, Steady
At quarterback, veteran Fred
Custardo is the man to watch, as
Coach Elliott has turned the team
over to him, with only four sopho-
mores and an inexperienced jun-
ior, Bruce Sullivan, to back him
up. Last season Custardo turned
in a steady performance, ranking
sixth in the conference on a 52
per cent.completion average, good
for 787 yards.
Senior Sam Price, back for his
third year, finds himself battling
for a starting halfback assign-
ment. Ron Acks, the fourth of-
fensive starter has been shifted to
defense, leaving the field open for
sophomores to step into the back-
field.
Top first year candidates are
Cyril Pender and Ron Bess. Bess,
at 6-0, 190, has apparently won
one halfback post, while Pender
!is still battling Price for the nod
at the other. Price Was second
among Illini rushers last fall with
225 yards, for a 3.5 average.
More Defense
Illinois has been noted for its
tough defensive backfields, and
Elliott, sees this year as no ex-
ception, despitesthe graduation of
two-thirds of last fall's deep trio.
Senior Dick Kee, who stands only
5-9 and weighs 175, is the re-
turnee. Kee played 221 minutes in
'64, and helped the Illini hold
theiraopponentsto a 39 per cent

ILLINOIS COACH Pete Elliott exhorts his team in preparation for the coming season. The Illiil
have an outstanding backfield with All-American fullback Jim Grabowski, and capable Sam Price
at half and Fred Custardo at quarterback. The Illini deficiency, however, is inexperience in the of-
fensive and defensive line which could keep the m in the second division of the conference.

completion average, lowest in the
Big Ten.
InAaddition to offensive retread
Acks, who will probably be re-
placing All-America George Don-
nelly at safety, Elliott has sopho-
more Phil Knell to team with Kee
on pass defense. Backing up the
starting three are lettermen Al
Waters and Wayne Paulson.
Custardo will be throwing to a
group consisting entirely of sophs.
Last year's regulars Rich Cal-
laghan and Dave Mueller are
graduated, Bob Trumpy' is in-
eligible, and Eddie, Russell has
been lost due to a knee injury.
This leaves only veteran Bo
Batchelder, who will be used ex-
clusively on defense. Starting posts
have been set with John Wright
and Larry Jordan getting the nod.
Don Hansen, a 6-2, 201 senior
linebacker, is ready to try to fill
the shoes of the graduated Dick
Butkus. Hansen has impressive
credentials, including All-America
honorable mention, a second All-
Big Ten team position, and the
post of 1965 co-captain along with
Grabowski. Working with Hansen
will be senior Bill Harper (6-0,
181), who is still working for his
first letter.
In the interior line, which is
probably Illinois' biggest problem,
only '64 regular Gary Eickman is
returning.
With all six lettering guards
gone, Elliott must man the for-
ward wall with sophs or inexper-
ienced upperclassmen. Heading
this list are Ron Guenther (5-9,
198), and Fritz Harms. These two
should be starting on offense, with
sophomore Bill Allen and junior
Tom Smith, at 225 and 193 re-
spectively, set to go on defense.
Tackle is a little more secure,
with "experience concentrated on
the eight side. Veteran Eickman
has the edge on defense, with
236-pound Dale Greco and 265-
pound Willis Fields pushing for
the offensive job. On the deft
side, the field is still unsettled,
with Ray Bateman' (6-5, 270),
Will Radell (5-11, 210), and 235-
pound Dick Stone in the running
for berths.
With the experienced backfield
and inexperienced line, the Illini,
open the season on September 18
at home against the Qregon State
Beavers, and then play six teams
before meeting the Blue on No-
vember 6 at Champaign.

Time has a nasty habit of ob-
scuring the past. The names of the
1962, 1963, and even '64 All-
Americans that were splashed so
extravagantly over newsprint and
air time are fading rapidly from
memory.
To refresh your memory and to
fill some space which would em-
barrass us greatly were it left
blank, here are some of those
statistics of last year which are
probably getting a bit foggy about'
now.j

FOREST HILLS, N.Y. (A)-Can
Roy Emerson, the able Australian,
become the third man in 45 years
to win the United States tennis
title three times?
Play in the annual tournament
begins at the West Side Tennis
Club today with defending queen
Maria Ester Bueno of Brazil as
the main attraction.
Emerson waits until Saturday
for his appearance on the pre-
cisely manicured center court in
his drive to become the third man
since World War I to take the
crown in the men's singles divi-
sion for the third time. He is No.J
1 seed and the defending cham-
pion. He also won in 1961 The
immortal Bill Tilden, of coarse,
was one of" the two men of the
past who won the National three
times. In fact, he reigned for six
years, 1920-1925. Fred Perry, the
smooth Briton, is the other. He

Such greats as Donald Budge,
Ellsworth Vines, Jack Kramer,
Pancho Gonzales and Neale Fraser
never were able to win three
championships.
Emerson, already the Wimble-
don and Australian titleholder,
starts his campaign against Ed-
uardo Zuleta of Ecuador. Follow-
ing the Emerson-Zuleta duel is
the prize pairing of the first round
-Arthur Ashe of Richmond, Va.,

Bedard of Canada ir: the first
match of the tourney, which will
run 10 straight days, through Sun-
day, Sept. 12. The Brazilian star
is seeded No. 2, behind Margaret
Smith of Australia, whom she de-
feated for the 1963 title. Miss
Smith doesn't make her appear-
ance this time until Sunday, when
she opposes Karen Hantze Sus-
man of San Diego, Calif., who up-
set her a year ago,
Other top matches today pit
Fred Stolle of Australia, beaten
finalist here a year ago and ex-
pected to achieve the same dis-
tinction this time, against Butch
Newman of San Antonio, Tex., a
highly regarded member. of the
U.S. Junior Davis Cup team; and
Dennis Ralston of Bakersfield,
Calif., against Jim Hobson of
Fullerton, Calif.
Rafael Osuna of Mexico, the
1963 U.S. champion, meets Benton
Higgins of Australia, in a grand
stand match and Ronald Barnes
of Brazil 'opposes Robert Lutz,
18-year old junior champ from
