FLORIDA LOSES, 9-0:
Lothridge Leads in
IGeorgia Teelh Win,
a crunching 208-pound fullback
who can hit the line like a knife.
The key to the Illini plans for
this year is the quarterbacking.
Mike Talliaferro and Ron Fearn
are contesting for the starting
spot. Neither have brilliant ca-
reers behind them.
Taliaferro threw 212 times com-
pleting 80 for 1139 yards in 1962.
The percentage is not electrifying,
but neither was his line and ends.
Fearn sat out last season with in-
juries, but at this moment he is
considered number one at the po-
sition. Not spectacular, but a
steady performer, he does more
handing off than passing.-
The Illini are still weak at end,
Thurman Walker, having grad-
uated, Sophomore Eddie Russell
might help out, some, but the
position is undoubtedly soft.
The Illinois passers and runners
will be helped by the league's
largest line. Center Dick Butkus
is the anchor of this aggregation.
Butkus is a former Chicago
grid star who played quarterback
in his high school days. Elliott
switched him to,.the line and he
took to it like a termite in a se-
quoia. Many observers see Butkus
as a future All-American as a
center and linebacker.
Butkus is flanked by mountain-
ous Archie Sutton, 260-pound
tackle, Bill Minor and Todd Ga-
bert. A crew of other huskies ,in-
cluding Dick Deller and Bob Easter
vie for guard spot.
Rich Callaghan is solid at de-
fensive end, but the other end
spot may be, weak. Elliott has mov-
ed fullback Greg Schumacher to
the position in an attempt to bol-
ster it. Opponents may do a lot of
running around end this season.
Illinois has fair depth in the
backfield with fleet Trenton Jack-
son, Cecil Young and George
Wineland at the halves and Al
Wheatland at full. Fred Custardo
is supposed to be a coming sopho-
more quarterback, and Dick Kee
is a promising scatback.
ATLANTA ().- Georgia Tech
kept its string of 37 consecutive
home opening football victories
intact yesterday, beating the
Florida Gators 9-0 in the nation-
ally televised first major college
game of the season in a cold,
Tech's strong defense kept the
Gators bottled up in their own ter-
ritory most of the game. Florida's
deepest penetration was to Tech's
30 at the start of the second half.
Quarterback B i 11 y Lothridge,
Tech's "Mr. Do-It-All," booted a
35-yard field goal with 3:30 re-
maining in the first half. Halfback
Joe Auer drove over from the 9-
yard line with 5:35 remaining in
the third period. Lothridge missed
the extra point.
Tech's powerful defense held the
Gators to minus five yards rush-
ing. The Gators also were hurt
badly by several crucial 15-yard
penalties. Florida was penalized
Florida's left-handed quarter-
back, Tom Shannon, was time and
again thrown for big losses by
Tech's hard-rushing line.
The Gators also rushed Loth-
ridge hard and he was able to
complete only four of 11 passes
for 41 yards.
Tech went into the shotgun of-
fense in the second period with
Lothridge passing from several
yards behind the line of scrim-
mage, but they were unable to
Florida attempted to make a
first down on fourth and one at
its own 34, but a mixup in signals
gave Tech the ball. On fourth
down halfback Joe Auer ran 13
yards around left end for a first
down at Florida's 14. However, the
Gators held and moved Tech back
to the Florida 18.
On fourth down Lothridge boot-
ed a 35-yard field goal for Tech's
Tech missed another chanceto
score a few plays later when a
blocked punt rolled out of the end
zone. The play was called back
when Tech was penalized five
yards for being offside. Then a
bad snap from center on the next
play gave Tech the ball at the
Florida 8, but back Ken Russell
intercepted a Lothridge pass and
Florida ran out the clock.
B eman Defeats Sikes 2 and I,
Takes Second Amateur Title
DES MOINES, Iowa (P)-Clock-
steady Deane Beman defeated an
erratic Dick Sikes 2 and 1 yester-
day in a tense 36-hole final for
the United States Amateur Golf
The 25-year-old Bethesda, Md.,
insurance man annexed his second
national title mainly because of a
five-hole winning streak that
started late in the morning round
and carried over into the after-
However, it was his trusty put-
ter that brought him a birdie on
the 32nd hole from 18 feet and
closed any chances that Sikes
might have had of staging a late
The five-hole surge lifted Be-
man from 3 down to 2 up over
Sikes, the National Collegiate
king from Arkansas, who eight
times drove off the fairway before
lunch and then fought a bulky
putter most of the way in the
day's second trip over the wooded
hills of the Wakonda Club's 6,896
Beman first won the U.S. Ama-
teur in 1960; a year after he had
taken the British title. Since, his
1960 triumph overseas, the stocky,
father of three daughters has been
the low amateur in the 1962 U.S.
open, played on three Walker Cup
teams, three America's Cup teams
and two world amateur squads.
The restless Sikes, who charges
from tee to green like a fireman
answering a general alarm, looked
headed for a runaway before Be-
man started his five-hole rally on
the 15th by sinking a 10-foot
Beman cut his deficit by another
hole on the 16th when the former
Public Links champion missed the
green and lost to a par. Beman
stuck a No. 6 iron shot 30 inches
from the flag for a birdie deuce
on No. 17, and then wedged one to
eight feet from the hole on the
18th for a birdie three that gave
him a 1-up edge before they went
When play was resumed, Sikes
sent his second on the 19th over
the green and the ball rolled
down the steep incline into a
pocket in a gravel path below. A
study of the rule book showed that
it was not a hazard and the slen-
der Arkansan chipped out, the ball
going only half way up the slope.
Sikes' desperate try for a par
from the uphill lie was short and
Beman posted a calm par for an-
other winner. That made Beman's
edge 2 up, but he missed the
green with his approach on the
24th and Sikes drew even on the
26th when he knocked in a 13-foot
downhill putt for a birdie.
Beman went ahead again on the
28th when Sikes' strong second
shot bounced on the green and
hopped into a trap. Then came
Beman's decisive deuce on the
Only twice during the day did
the poker-faced Beman, whost pe-
tite wife trudged ,all of the 10
rounds the winner needed to re-
gain the crown, show any emotion.
The first time was on the sixth
hole of the morning round when
his second shot wandered slightly
off the line into the rough and the
ball was imbedded in the soft turf.
He showed displeasure when he
found that a spectator had stepped
on the ball while trying to get out
of the way. He finally was per-
mitted to lift.
The second time came at the
ninth hole when Deane looked up
just before putting and saw his
father and mother, whom he
thought to be in Bethesda. They
had flown in unexpectedly. The
incident interrupted his concen-
tration and Beman missed the
He was one over par for the
final two rounds while Sikes was
"I only had one bad hole-the
sixth this afternoon where I hit
the wrong club out of the rough,"
Beman stated. "I'm very happy I
played this steady-usually in
match play I'm up and down.
"Boy, I got a couple of bad
breaks I didn't think I had com-
ing," said Sikes. "But I didn't
putt very well."
St. Louis Whips Dallas
In NFL Opener, 34-7
FIGHTING ILLINI-These four Illinois players are expected to be in the vanguard of a bid by the
Illini to make the first division of the conference. Ron Fearn (11) and Mike Talliaferro (14) are
seeking the quarterback position on Coach Pete Elliotts team. Fearn sat out all of last season with
injuries while Talliaferro completed 80 of 212 passes in 1962 for Illinois. Dick Butkus (50) is a center
and linebacker. He received considerable acclaim as a sophomore and stardom is predicted for him
this year. Sam Price (47) is a highly touted sophomore halfback with plenty of speed and power.

GREEN BAY, Wis.-The Green
Bay Packers launch their bid for
an unprecedented third straight
National League title by meeting
the Chicago Bears today in the
B8the"renewal of an old rivalry.
The Packers, who won five
straight pre-season games after
an opening upset to the College
All-Stars, rule a two-touchdown
favorite to make the Bears their
first victims of 1963. Chicago had
a 3-2 record, including a 26-7 de-
feat by Green Bay, in tuneups
for the regular campaign.
With 28 veterans of the 1962
club which lost only one game en
route to the championship, the
Packers are loaded with talent.
Halfback Paul Hornung, suspend-
ed for betting 'on league games,
and defensive end Bill Quinlan,
traded for a future draft choice,
are the only regulars missing.
Hornung; the Golden Boy who
holds the NFL record of 176 points
scored in a season, will be re-
placed by' high-stepping 'fom
Moore, a three-year veteran from
Vanderbilt. Quinlan's spot will be
taken over by Lionel Aldridge, a
rookie from Utah State.
The Green Bay attack again
will be directed by quarterback
Bart Starr, the league's top passer
a year ago, and powered by full-
back Jimmy Taylor, who captured
NFL ground-gaining and scoring
honors last season.

geles Angels, who already had two
