The Humane Society of the United States should not be confused with the American Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals, which is far too busy defending itself against charges of cruelty to animals, or with the Ameri- · can Humane Association, which regularly Inspects rodeos and helped the Rodeo Cowboys Association frame a code of rules for protection of the livestock. About the only thing these groups have in common is an attitude of bland unconcern regarding cruelty to cow- W « " Scrounging a Living in Hand-to-Horn Combat boys. Those who cry out loudest when a fleece- lined flank strap is buckled about a saddle bronc's barrel yawn politely when a 2,000- pound bull with a disposition of Alex Johnson gives Freckles Brown his tenth broken leg. The do - gooders Justify this view on the ground that the bucking horse has no voice in the matter, whereas Freckles Brown is a rational creature endowed with free will. Technically they are correct. Etymologically, one might quibble about the definition of "rational" as applied to Warren G. Brown. He is a leathery little rooster who for almost 35 years has been scrounging a living in hand - to - horn combat with enraged bulls. The Brahmas have broken his neck twice, and when one of them stepped on his left ankle last Fourth of July he snapped both the ankle and a screw that had held the bone together after one of nine earlier fractures. The implausible Mr. Brown was on the ground until March, but he has hauled his 50 - year - old carcass East to take on the bulls in the Garden. This is a rational creature? Freckles, to be sure, is a freakish exception to the rule that in rodeo the livestock outlasts the cowboys. The annual National Finals Rodeo is the cowpoke's World Series. Only Marty Wood, a three - time champion saddle - bronc rider, has competed in every one since the 1959 inaugural, but there are at least eight bucking horses that made the finals every year -- Chicken Fry, Little Ruby, Jake, Funeral Wagon, Cactus Jack, Sunnybrook, Jesse James and Golden Glow. New Yorkers Send McLain to Showers NEW YORK (UPI) Bobby Murcer hit two homers and Mel Stotttemyre pitched a four - hit shutout as the New York Yankees beat the Washington Senators, 4-0, Saturday and handed Denny McLain his 14th defeat.

McLain has now been beaten by every team in the A m e r i c a n League. Horace Clarke collected the first of seven hits the Yankees tagged McLain for in his brief stint as he singled leading off the first. After Jerry Kenney popped out, Murcer, who collected a pair of run- scoring triples Friday night but then had to leave the game with a slight muscle strain, hit bis 13th homer.

Murcer's solo homer in the seventh off Denis Riddleberger accounted for the final Yankee run. Murcer also singled in the third inning and his performance boosted his average to .349. Stottiemyre, boosting his record to 8-6, retired the first 11 men he faced before giving up consecutive singles to Don Mineher and Frank Howard in the fourth inning.

When it comes to easy living, the bucking horse has It made. Take Descent, the big palomino voted "bucking horse of the year" four times in a row. He was a spoiled pack horse who carried his antipathy toward humans into the arena. A rogue who doesn't learn to buck winds up in a can of pet food. Descent, on the contrary, got the best of care from Sonny Linger, and shrugged off all but 37 of the 106 desperadoes who tried to ride him from 1962 through 1969. A cowboy scores on a horse if he stays aboard ten seconds. Thus Descent's successful riders spent a total of 370 seconds on his back, and if the 69 riders who landed on their heads averaged five seconds, in the saddle, that would mean another 345 seconds of work. It conies to a little less than 12 minutes of bucking over eight years. Copyright 1971 Field Enterprises, Inc. Cougar Nips Fort Marcy Bv ALEXKAHN INGLEWOOD, Calif. (UPI) -- Stretch - running Cougar II closed from far off the pace to nip Fort Marcy at the wire and capture the third running of the $125,000 Invitational Turf Handicap at Hollywood Park Saturday.

But once Bill Shoemaker called on the five- year- old South American for speed, he turned it on in a brilliant exhibition of racing to overhaul Fort Marcy only a few yards from the wire. Divide and Rule finished third and Drumtop was fourth. The winning time was an excellent 2:26 2-5 for the mile and a half on the turf, just four - fifth of a second off the course and stakes record set last year by Fiddle Isle when Fort Marcy also was second. The Saturday crowd of 42,500 installed Cougar II as a strong favorite and he returned $4.60, $2.80 and $2.20. Fort Marcy, fourth choice in the wagering, paid $4.00 and $2.80 and Divide and Rule's price was $2.80.

It was Cougar H's fifth victory in eight starts, all in stakes, and included two other races for more than $100,000 purses, the San Juan Capistrano and the Californian. The second - place finish stamped Fort Marcy as the hard- luck horse of the year. It was his sixth start this year without a win but the fourth time he had finished in the money in a major race.

Then the Milwaukee Brewers held a Dime Beer Day and. being the beer capital of the world, it, too. was a smasberoo. Now the Indians are going the Astros and Brewers one better. They're planning a combination Nkkel Beer and Helmet Day July 5. That's a Monday afternoon (1:30) single game with the Washington Senators. It works this way: dad can buy a 12-ounce cup of suds for five cents, while junior gets an Indians batting helmet if be (or she) is under 16. The nickel beer will be available before and during the game behind the centerfield fence and at special stands throughout the stadium, but not at regular concession stands. Helmets will be given away at all gates, and "NO" combination admission is required. * * * The Fourth of July Sunday afternoon contest -- it's billed as Family Day -- offers a two-fold attraction of its own. · For one, pop gets in for the full price while the missus and all their youngsters get adjoining seats for $1.25 each.

That stubborn tight fixture to the right of home plate atop lakefront stadium that caused suspension of last Sunday's second game between the Indians and Detroit Tigers has been repaired . . . which is akin to locking the barn door after the horse has been stolen. Indians officials were notified that the transformer has been replaced and a new support and back-up system installed. It was the transformer that malfunctioned in the eighth inning of Sunday's second game. After a 45-minute delay, the game was rescheduled for completion on Sept 28 with the Indians leading by 7-6 and Sam McDowell pitching to AcreUo Rodnqnez. an easy winner under Donald Brumfield after she caught J.
