SUNDAY, SEI'TLMBEK 29, 1974 PAGE 2 SEC. 3- THE IXDIANArOLIS STAR Pirates Lead By 1 In N.L. East Sports Over Lightly Bob Collins Sports Editor TF YOU KNEW ART POLLARD, I can tell you how you remember him a guy with a big smile on his face. There was a lot of boy in the man who came into big-time racing late and left it much too soon in a fatal accident at the Indianapolis Motor Speedway last year. Things - until the last shunt never got so bad for old 'Pallard" that he couldn't laugh at other people's needles about his problems. Life was a piece of cake. He was a race driver and there was just no way he could possibly think of anything better to be. Like most people who perform in public he had a price on his services. And perhaps he got paid now and then for public appearances. But he couldn't say no to anybody who had a club or a luncheon group and no money. He'd rather chomp on rubber roast beef and do his act for nothing than hurt somebody's feelings. He also had this thing about kids. Perhaps, it was the kid in him that they recognized, but they related to him. And every May he took the ones with real problems the kids at LaRue" Carter Memorial Hospital - to the Speedway. Art never made that much money; never made it to the Cadillac teams. But he always could find a few bucks for those kids. So it is only fitting and proper that Wednesday a portion of the proceeds from the Ringling Brothers and Barnum & Bailey Circus at Market Square Arena will go into the Art Pollard Memorial Fund. A half-buck from each ticket will be set aside to help the kids at LaRue Carter. I can think of no better way to honor the memory of Art Pollard than to attend the show that is billed for "children of all ages." Hey, you can't miss the circus. Sure, you say you might go just because your kids might like it. But we you and I know we'll be there to treat ourselves. And while you're there, save a quick thought for old Arturo. Wherever he is, you can bet that all night long, he'll just smile. And smile. And smile. Morey Captures Seniors Crown Hilton Head Island, S.C. (UPI) Hoosier native Dale Morey of High Point, N.C., won the U.S. Golf Association Senior Championship yesterday by defeating Lewis Oeh-mig of Lookout Mountain, Tenn., 4 and 2. Morey, who recently turned 55 to become eligible for the Seniors competition, closed out Oehmig on the 16th hole after the Tennessean was stymied by his tee shot that landed behind a tree. Morey, parred the hole. " College Grid Scores Aabama 2J, Vande.bilt 10. Arwnsos 60, Tulsa 0. . Appalachian St. 0, West Carolina 0, til. . Ar.orna New Mexico iO. Auburn 21, Tennessee 0.

Racers Chop Six Players From Roster STAR SPECIAL REPORT Flint, Mich. - The World Hockey Association Indianapolis Racers lopped six players from the expansion team's first roster yesterday. Given their outright release were goalie Gerry Gray, de-fenseman Rychard Campeau, left wing Brian Carlen and center Cal Swenson. CENTERS Marty Reynolds and Bill McEwan also' were dropped from the major league roster but may be shipped to the Racers' Mohawk Valley farm club in the North American League. The line of Bob Whitlock, Jim Wiste and Nick Harbaruk continued to be the best in the camp. Eut they have been hard-pressed by Brian McKen-zie, Bob Sicinski and Steve An-drascik. So far goalie Andy Brown has been everything the Racers had hoped for when they shelled out half a million dollars to sign him to a five-year contract. "He's like another coach nn the ice," said Chuck Crtto, the director of player personnel. The Racers oen exhibition play here Thursday n i t h t against the Michigan Stas. Their first Indianapolis appearance will be against the Houston Aeros Oct. 13 at Market Square Arena. Tickets are now on sale at the MSA box office. Morey, formerly of Martinsville, Ind. went 3-up on the front nine when he birdied the second and fifth holes and won three others with pars, while Oehmig took the sixth and ninth holes. Oehmig won the 10th, dropped the 11th when he three-putted, but rallied to take the 12th with a 60-foot chip shot and the 13th to be only one down. But Morey came back to take the 14th and 15th and then defeated his opponent on the next hole. Harvard 24, Holy Cross .4. Hillioae i. Nrrthwood 15. Hobart 17, Denison 7. hu,c i8, Auedit.il 14.

Defense proved the name of the game as Flint's Sabre sharp defense stifled Indy and went on to claim the 1974 Midwest Football League crown last night rith a 15-2 pasting of the Caps. In a sloppy game played on a sliuoerv Astroturf field, most of the scoring came from the respective defensive units. THE SABRES pierced the Indy offense in the early going as defensive end Mike Ciherich from Eastern Michigan picked off a Ted McNulty aerial and returned it for a 40-yard score. The Caps, who finished the year at 9-2, found paydirt when linebacker Mike Forche recovered a Tom Slade fumble on a bad snap from center for a safety. The Sabres then started a drive which lost its momentum making it necessary for Ben Haller to kick a 35-yard Flint 7 3 7 315 2 0 02 interception ndy o Flint Ciherich 40 nau (Heller kick). moy safety for Forche.

Gary VanElst, defensive tackle from Michigan State, recovered a bad snap from center which Jake Jacobs had fumbled on the four-yard line and went for the Sabres' second safety of the contest.

West Tie Seived By Dodgers San Diego (UPI) - Andy Messersmith became the National League's first 20-game winner last night when he combined with Mike Marshall on a five-hitter and pitched Los Angeles to a 5-2 triumph over the San Diego Padres which enabled the Dodgers to clinch at least a tie for the N.L. West crown. The victory, which was the Dodgers' 16th in 18 games with San Diego this season, whittled the Dodgers' "magic number" to one for clinching the division title. Los Angeles and Cincinnati, which trails the Dodgers by three games, each have three games remaining. Messersmith, a prime candidate for the N.L.'s Cy Young Award, allowed only four hits in 7 2-3 innings before giving way to Marshall and became a 20-game winner for the second time in his career. . The 29-year-old righthander, now 206, also won 20 games for the California Angels in 1971.

A 8,370 the race for first place in the American League East. Cuellar, 22-10, was staked to a 2-0 lead in the first inning when Paul Blair and Bob Grich singled, then came around to score on a throwing error by Brewer catcher Charlie Moore. When Blair broke for third base on the front end of a double steal, Moore threw wildly into left field as Grich followed Blair across home plate. Pedro Garcia homered in the fith inning, his 12th, ruining Cuellar's shutout. Cuellar, who hasn't lost since Aug. 24, posted his 20th complete game of the season, including rout-going efforts nine times in his last 11 starts.

The Pirates victory, coupled with the St. Louis Cardinals' 8-3 loss to Chicago, gave Cards Dealt 3- 3 Defeat By Chicago Chicago (UPI) Chicago relief ace Dave LaRoche, with a pair of clutch singles, triggered a three-run rally in the sixth inning and a four-run outburst in the seventh, leading the Cubs to an 8-3 triumph over the St. Louis Cardinals. LaRoche, pressed into service in the fourth inning when starter Rick Reuschel developed a blister on his pitching hand, gave up three hits in 4 1-3 innings. REUSCHEL, who had retired the first two Cardinals in the fourth, walked Ted Simmons and Joe Torre, but rain began falling and the game was delayed 29 minutes. After the rain delay, LaRoche walked Bake McBride to load the bases and gave up a two-run single to Ken Reitz. Mike Tyson then doubled home the third run. Billy Williams got a run back for the Cubs in the fourth when he hit his lfith home run of the year against loser Lynn McGlothen. LaRoche, leading off the sixth, singled to right. Rick Monday then got an infield hit and McGlothen walked Don Kessinger to load the bases. McGlothen got Williams to pop up, but Bill Madlock tripled to rightcenter to clear the bases and give the Cubs a 4- 3 advantage.

Hebner's blast, his 18th of the season, came in the third inning off starter and loser Tug McGraw, 6 11, and broke a 1-1 tie. With one out, Willie Stargell and Zisk drew walks, and one out later, Hebner slammed his homer into the rightfield bullpen. Zisk rapped his 17th homer of the season in the fifth inning with Al Oliver, who had doubled, on base. The poke chased McGraw and brought hi Bob Miller, the second of four pitchers used by the Mets in a futile effort to cool hot Pirates' bats. Rusty Staub accounted for the first two Mets' tallies. Hahn opened the first inning with a double, went to third on Felix Millan's bunt single and scored on Staub's infield out. Staub led off the sixth with his 19th homer of the season. Rookie Benny Ayala belted his second home run leading off the Mets' ninth. Jim Rooker went the first 8 2-3 innings for the Pirates, picking up his 15th victory in 26 decisions.
