Los Angeles Takes
3-0 Lead in Series

CHAMPAIGN - Illinois stifled
three long goalward drives by
Northwestern in the last quarter
yesterday to beat the fifth-rank-
ed Wildcats, 10-9, on a razzle-
dazzle touchdown pass and Jim
Plankenhorn's 21-yard field goal.

Custardo, Sam Price and Jim
Grabowski, moved 58 yards to
Northwestern's four. During the
push, a pass interference call on
a fourth-down-and-six yards to
go situation gave the Illini an
automatic first down and kept
the threat alive.
Plankenhorn was called in for
a field goal attempt at a danger-
ous angle. It sailed perfectly
through the uprights from 21
yards out:

this important Big Ten football
battle opening Illini league play.
Northwestern's g r eat passer,
Tommy Myers, hurled a 29-yard
scoring pass to Tom O'Grady in
the opening 40 seconds of the sec-
ond period to give the Wildcats'
a 6-0 lead..
But, otherwise, Myers was pres-
sured by Illinois' charging line-
men and many times, when he
did have time, his aerial efther
misfired or his receivers dropped
the ball.
It just wasn't Myers' day and
the Illini took advantage of it for
its first victory over its intrastate
rival since 1959.
Center Joe Cerne's high snap-
back prevented Northwestern from
converting after its touchdown.
With three and a half minutes
left in the first half, Illinois got
the ball on Northwestern's 32
when Ron Rector's fizzled punt
went only five yards. On the first
play, sophomore quarterback Fred
Custardo shot a flat pass to Ron
Fearn, who then heaved 32 yards
to Jim Warren in the end zone
for the Illini touchdown. Plank-
enhorn booted the point.

LOS ANGELES--Don Drysdale,
a tall, handsome part-time TV
actor, pitched the Los Angeles
Dodgers to their third straight
World Series victory over the reel-
ing New York Yankees yesterday
with a three-hit, 1-0 triumph.
One more defeat today and the
futile Yanks will go down the
drain, victims of their own patent-
ed four-straight killer punch.
No club in 59 previous Series
ever has been able to bounce back
after losing three in a row. The
Yanks, with a total of three runs
in three games and a Sandy Kou-
fax ahead, don't look like the
team to rewrite the book, even
though they hold the record for
four-straight sweeps with six.
Early Lead
Once gain the Dodgers pinned
the Yanks to the mat by taking
an early lead. In this case it was
only one run but it did the trick
with Drysdale.
Dodger speed, young Jim Bou-
ton's wildness and the inability
of the highly touted Yankee in-
field to come up with the big play
at the right time added up to that
lonely run.
With one out in the first, Jim
Gilliam worked the 24-year-old.
Yankee right-hander to a 3-2
count and finally walked. Willie
Davis lined out wickedly to Johnny
Blanchard, filling in for the in-
jured Roger Maris in right field.
Working carefully on Tommy
Davis, Bouton let his fifth pitch
bounce into the dirt away from
catcher Elston Howard for a wild
pitch. Gilliam quickly dashed to
Davis' RBI
Davis, hitting star of the Ser-
ies, then smashed a single through
the usually dependable Bobby
Richardson that rolled into short
right center, far enough to per-
mit the 'speedy Gilliam to score
the only run. Tommy's smash ap-
peared to scoot off the edge of the
infield grass and hopped off
Richardson's foot.
The Dodgers were not smashing
the ball, but the Yanks weren't
doing a thing. They went quietly

Michigan Coach Bump Elliott
couldn't think of when he'd seen
a football player better than
Roger Staubach.
Somebody in the press box said.
he was the best passer to hit
Michigan Stadium since Otto
Graham. Others said his running
made Ron VanderKelen look sick.
And so it went.
And no wonder. In Navy's 26-13
victory over Michigan yesterday,
Staubach had his best day ever
in a Midshipman uniform. The
junior All-American candidate
ran and passed for a total of 307
yards to' break his own single-
game Middie record of, 297 which
he himself set against William and
Mary just a week ago.
Despite being thrown for 24
yards in losses by the Michigan
defensive line, Staubach picked up
70 yards net on the ground to
lead all Navy runners. For the
most part, Wolverine tacklers just
couldn't keep their hands on him
long enough to bring him down.
Aerial Show
But Staubach really shone in
the aerial warfare department. He
improved on his already pheno-
menal .744 pass completion per-
centage by connecting on 14 out
of 16 pass attempts. Out of the
two he missed, one was dropped
by the intended receiver and the
other was picked off by Michi-
gan's Tom Cecchini.
Although you can't knock Navy's
receivers, the majority of the
credit for Navy's passing success
must go to Staubach. He doesn't
have a favorite target, as evi-
denced by yesterday's perform-
ance, in which he distributed his
14 completions among no less than
eight different ends and backs.
Staubach's accuracy, even when
under a heavy rush, is what
makes him so successful. Like
Jimmy Rayl, he just doesn't miss.
Navy Coach Wayne Hardin was
almost complacent about Stau-
bach's performance. "Roger was

Papa Bear George Halas and his
host of undefeated grizzlies take
on the Baltimore Colts in their
own Chicago den today in the
featured contest of six National
Football League games.
The Bears have devoured their
first three opponents this season
with a minimum of effort except
in their commencement exercises
against Green Bay which they won
by a bare 10-3 margin. Recent
conquests were against Minnesota
and Detroit. A confident Billy
Wade, an incredibly well-balanced
Ron Bull, and a granite defense
have been the keys to the Bears
revival. With the exception of a
shoulder separation to tackle Fred
Williams, Chicago has avoided
major injuries.
The Colts, on the 'other hand,
showing a 1-2 record, have been
hurt badly by the injury bugaboo.
Ace pass catcher Raymond Berry
will not play because of a dis-
located elbow. Another fine pass
receiver, Jimmy Orr is out- with
a 'sprained knee. Linebacker Don
Shinnick and standout defensive.
end Gino Marchetti are slated as
doubtful starters.
Baltimore does have Johnny
Unitas to pass and Lenny Moore
to receive which means they have
an explosive offense. The Bears
are a strong favorite off their
record thus far and because of the
Colt injuries.
Big One
The big game in the Eastern
division will pit the New York
Giants against the Washington
Redskins. The Giants will have
the services of Yelberton Abraham
Tittle; therefore, they are favored.
Tittle is the leading NFL passer
and the inspirational and me-
chanical catylist who transforms
the Giants from mediocrity to ex-
Norman Snead makes the Red-
skin offense click. Mercurial Bobby
Mitchell is probably the most fear-
ed receiver in the game. He and
ends Fred Dugan, Bill Anderson,
and Pat Ricter will keep the New
York secondary busy. Both teams
have 2-1 records.
In another Eastern division
game the Dallas Cowboys will try
to vindicate in some small way
the confidence many preseason
forecasters had in them as they
battle the Eagles in Philadelphia,
Neither team has savored victory
yet this season. Both squads have
had quarterback problems. Don
Meredith is slated to start for
Dallas and King Hill will probably
start for Philly. Both have been
spotty. Don Perkins is an excel-
lent runner for the Cowboys which

Detroit. The '49ers, under new
coach Jack Christiansen, will be
without the services of John Bro-
die, out with an injured throwing-
arm. Their most startling asset is
kick return man Abe Woodson who
has a fantastic 50.7 yard average.
The game could decide whether
Milt Plum will keep the Lions
starting quarterback position or
give way to Earl Morrall. Detroit
is 1-2 and San Francisco 0-3.
Green Bay, in hot pursuit of the
Bears, has won two in a row and
is a top-heavy favorite over the
Los Angeles Rams who have yet
to win. Packer fullback Jim Taylor
has a groin injury but he is ex-
pected to play.
In the American Football League
the Kansas City Chiefs make their
regular season debut in Kansas
City against last year's playoff
opponents, Houston. Houston, 2-2,
hopes to have Billy Cannon
healthy to take some of the pres-
sure off workhorse Charley Tolar.
Kansas City which has a disap-
pointing 1-1-1 record, focuses its
offense around the passing of Len
Dawson who has clicked for eight
San Diego's rebounding Charg-
ers, Western Division leaders at
3-0, are fresh off a victory over
Kansas City and are out to avenge
two 1962 losses to Denver. The
Chargers, led by old Tobin Rote,
are big favorites against the er-
ratic and youthful Broncos.

STAUBACH POURS IT ON - With a poisonous, for opponents, combination of passing and running
Navy's All-America candidate Rober Staubach (12) almost ran the Wolverines off the field yesterday.
Michigan's Bob Chandler to John Henderson combination was all that kept the score (26-13) respec-
table. Michigan's line of would be tacklers is led by Jack Clancy (24) followed by Bill Laskey (83) and
Tom Keating.



Getting back to the brighter
side of things, the Wolverines did
put on quite a passing show of
their own in the second half. With
starting quarterback Frosty Eva-
shevski out with a slight injury
in the second .period, Elliott sent
in ace passer Bob Chandler to
try to penetrate Navy's second-
ary with the score 20-0 for the
Although Chandler vias all too
often unable to get the ball away
and subsequently hit for a loss,
he did direct Michigan to its only
two scores of the afternoon. In.
fact, his completion percentage
was even better than Staubach's-
he connected on nine of 10 tries
for 138 yards, including two
touchdown passes to John Hen-
derson, his favorite target.
Catches Six

Once again, Dick Rindfuss was
the leading ground gainer, but he
came up with only 33 yards in
eight tries yesterday, as opposed
to 58 in four against Southern
Methodist last week. The Wolver-
ines' rushing yardage amounted
to an anemic 84, and you might
say that that, outside of a few
breaks for Navy, was the ball
Stagg Staggers
The first break, and probably
the most important, was in the
second quarter, when with a Mich-
igan fourth down on its own 18,
Elliott sent in sophomore Frank
Stagg to punt in place of the in-
jured Joe O'Donnell. Stagg pro-
ceeded to slide the ball off the
side of his foot and out of bounds
on the Michigan 33, from where
Navy scored easily.

as much as Staubach did. "We
had the heat on Staubach in the
first part of the game," he said,
'but with most of our first -line
injured, we couldn't keep it up.
However, I was really proud of
the way the team played, and in
spots I thought we looked pretty
Casualties High
The Wolverines' casualty list
was an extremely lengthy one. For
the most part it amounted to a
player getting hit in the head and
being dazed enough to miss the
rest of the game. This was the
case for O'Donnell, Evashevski,
fullback Chuck Dehlin, and start-
ing tackle Bill Yearby, who had
to be helped from the field ap-
parently badly hurt, but who re-
covered shortly thereafter.
