TRANSCRIPT NINE National League Favorite in Annual All-Star Contest Pesky Is Worried About Gene Con ley Racing Data Green Mountain Attendance 3,579. Handle, $132,769, Berkshire Downs Attendance 1943, Handle $123,408. CLEVELAND third baseman (AP) — Boslon Frank Malzone will bat cleanup for Ihe American League in Ihe All - Star Game today despite a sore neck. But Ihe ills bothering Red Sox manager Johnny Pesky are the bum ankle and wing owned by Gene Conley. Pesky serving as a coach for New York's Ralph Hou!;, the A.L. skipper. Carl Yaslrzemski, Ihe league leading batsman at .334. is the alternate left fielder behind Los Angeles' Leon Wagner. Tlie live-man Sox delegation is completed by pitchers Dick Radatz and Bill Monbouquetle. Boston reached Hie halfway point in Ihe pennant race in Ihird place, six games behind New York and .010 back of runncrup Chicago. "I'm very satisfied with tlie way our team lias played so far." Pesky said, "Who expected us to be up this high at the All- Star break? "We'll need we are leading Ihe league in hitting but pitching is the blgj thing. I see no reason why Monbou-'Qff 2nd Half quelle and Earl Wilson canV, ' ' ^ keep pitching the way they have VA/JiL J A \A/J n in the first half. Right now I plan TT Mil I— T TT III to keep those two in the starting rotation with rookies Dave More head and Boh Heffner. "But Ihe key to Ihe thing, I think, can be Conley. If he can come back and give us the pilch ing that he gave the team lasl year il would be a big lift. "He won 15 games last year, and he's only won two this season. Think how much it will help if his arm comes around and he can win seven or eight for ns in the second half. He's capable of doing it." Bothered by an ankle injury acquired in the National Basketball Association with the New York Knicks, Conley was off form until he was placed on the disabled list recently. Before he was pulled out of starting rola- good pitching to lion, he admitted his arm also slay in the pennant fight. I know'hurt him.

He was collared by the guards but instead of being escorted out of the place he was put to work scraping the plates in the park's kitchen for H. M. Stevens Inc. That job began a span of service with Stevens that lias covered 20 years. 4 * * The kid that jumped the fence back in 1934 is now manager of [he H. M. Stevens unit at Green Mountain Park in Pownal, Vt., Eugene Joseph Slrzesak, who may be seen nightly watching over proceedings at the park's beautiful clubhouse restaurant and at the grandstand cafeteria. * « * "I've never regretted the day I was put to work as a scullery boy," Mr. Siizespk said the other night while we were enjoying a conversation with "You My Page (Brown) Link-A-Linh (Duceiol couldn't find a better company to work for anywhere." * * * Promotions in the Stevens ranks have come steadily for Mr. Strzesak who has worked at just nbout every major racing piant in one capacity or another for the Stevens company.

Better make thai Jack Sharkey, former heavy weight king and still squire of Epping. Born Cukosckay, Sharkey blames the easy life ol the times for the decline of the ring sport. "It's easy to [Mint out why boxing and Ihe interest in it is fading," Sharkey said. "All the kids look for today is the easiest way out. When I was a kid it was nothing for me to walk two or three miles for a loaf of bread. We were in shape in those days, we had to be. "The amateur boxing structure is as important to boxing as the minor leagues are lo baseball. Amateur-boxing is Ihe fodder for professional fights. "You can count on one hand today the number of real contenders in each division throughout the country. As a matter of fact, 1 bet you can't name three in each division that are strong contenders. At least I can't. "St's a physical impossibility lo create professional fighters without a solid amateur program to base it on. "In the old days, there would be as many as 40 to 50 fighters fighting on an amateur card. Today, you're lucky to get 10 or a dozen. They things to do."

Bruce Crampton finished third at Toronto and the $2,633 he won was enough to boost him to ninth place. Paul Harney, in 10th spot last week, fell off. Hinsdale Entries Rams lop linesman. "The Rams initiated the trade to strengthen their line," saiclj feel that'll be an asset to the defense. Bui we feel it will help us, too, because in addition to gelling LoVelere, Ihe deal should solidify our backficld." Sherman plans to use the draft choice as bait for a deal for a top running back. Grier, who will be starting his eighth season in the league, and the other three members of the Giants defensive unit played together every minute of every season since 1(156, except for 1937 when Grier was in the Army and a few games toward the end ot Ihe 1MO season when Katcavage was hurt. Al Los Angeles, Grier will join Hrland Svare, an old teammate on Ihe Giants and now Ram head coach. "I rank him one of the lop tackles in the league," Svare said.

Margaret Smith Tennis Champion WIMBLEDON, England (AP)—j Margaret Smith, the tall and statuesque 20-year-old from Albery, Australia, wore Ihe laurels of two Wimbledon triumphs with coolness and poise today and laid for all time the gibe that she hasn't got the temperament for the big occasion. She end Chuck McKinley of San Antonio, Tex., men's singles champion, were Ihe outstanding personalities of a Wimbledon that had plenty of rain but lacked the colorful players of past tournaments. Monday, "Big Marge" slaughtered Billie Jean Moffitt, the Californian teen-ager, in Ihe singles final and won Ihe mixed doubles in partnership with Ken Fletcher. She nearly emulated Doris Hart's feat of 12 years ago by taking three titles. She lost the women's doubles to Maria Buenos of Brazil and Darlene Hard of Long Beach, Calif., mainly because her partner, Robyn Ebbern, 18, was too nervous for the occasion, They used to say thai Margaret was nervous, too, but she didn't show it in this tournament. Right from the start of the singles final, she looked more confident than the visually bouncy Billie Jean. The Australian girl won 6-3, 6-4. Billie Jean, who studied all winter and didn't start serious tennis until May, confessed afterwards that you can't concentrate on your education and win top class tennis tournaments, too. The women's singles final hadl been postponed from Saturday because of rain. So Margaret didn't have the honor of leading off the Wimbledon ball with McKinley on Saturday night, according to tradition. He danced with his wife, Wylita, instead. CLEVELAND, Ohio (AP)—The favored National League was prepared lo go all out in today's Ail- Star game with the leading American League as the series reverted to the original one game plan after four years of double helpings. About 45,000 fans were expected to turn out in sunny cool weather for the nationally televised (NBC) game starling at noon, (EST). This would be some 24,000 off the all-time record of 69,831 set in [his same Municipal Stadium (or the Ihird game, July 8, 1935. For Manager Alvin Dark of the San Francisco Giants this was a chance lo get even with Manager Ralph Houk of the New York Yankees for last year's World Series. Although Dark's Giants took Ihe Yankees down to the last out in October, they lost when Willie McCovey lined a rocket to Bobby Richardson for the final out in the seventh game. Both McCovey and Richardson were on the squads although neither was a slarler. Jim O'Toole, Cincinnali's talented left-hander with a shiny 13-6 record, was Dai'k's starting pitcher. The Giants' skipper had a capable staff to follow O'Toole. In addition lo southpaws Sandy Koufax of Los Angeles, Warren Spahn of Milwaukee, Hal Woodeshick of Houston, the Nationals had right- handers Don Drysdale of Los Angeles, Juan Marichal of San Francisco, rookie Ray Culp of Philadelphia and Larry Jackson of Chicago. Dark obviously went for the lefty because the American League's starting lineup had four left-handed batters—first baseman Joe Pepitone of New York, second baseman Nellie Fox of Chicago, left fielder Leon Wagner and center fielder Albie Pearson of Los Angeles. Houk held off on naming his slarter until he could talk to the boys in the clubhouse. Ken McBride of Los Angeles or Jim Sunning of Detroit had been announced as the two probables. Bunning had been something special in All-Slar games, having pilched eight straight scoreless innings during which he allowed only one hit in the last two years. Honk's other pitchers were Jim Bouton of New York, Bill Mon- bouquelte and Dick Radat?. of Boston, Jim Grant of Cleveland, all right-handers, and one jsouth- paw—Juan Pizarro of Chicago. The American League held a 17-15-1 edge after 33 games but the National had an 11-5-1 winning edge in the last 17 games and 4-1-1 in the last six.

Cronin, however, emphasized that Finley had made "no formal request," lo move the A's franchise. It would need at least eight affirmative ballots of the 10 owners to switch the franchise. The Associated Press bad learned exclusively Monday that Finley, rebuffed a year ago in his effort to move the A's to Dallas, was seeking a new home in California. The Oakland City Council and the Alameda County Board of Supervisors recently approved issuing $25 million in revenue bonds to bnild a 48,500-seat all-purpose stadium in Oakland. The park however, is not expected to be completed before 1065. Horace Stonebam, president of the National League's San Fran cisco Giants, confirmed that Finley had approached him in an effort to secure the use of the Giants' Candlestick Park until the Oakland stadium was finished. "Mr. Finley was in to see me 10 days or two weeks ago," Stoneham said in San Francisco. "He asked me if his club could play in Candlestick Park as a starter—until Oakland finished a proposed stadium, But I told him it would be better for him to establish himself directly in Oakland. As I understand it, Mr. Finley had talked lo and received backing of certain interests in Oakland." While denying that Finley had formally requested a move, Cronin said: "Mr. Finley discussed with ns liis problems in Kansas City, as he did a year ago, and expressed an interest in moving (o Oakland. I cannot say any more at this time." Other American League officials, at first hesitant (o discuss the matter, acknowledged that a heated discussion had taken place on Finley's proposal.

The A's, mired in the second division of the American League :or the eight years they've been in Kansas City, are troubled with skidding attendance despite the promotional efforts of the fiery Finley, who gained controlling in- lerest in December I960.
