Page Pour HOPK (AUK.) STAK Wednesday, September 11, Johnson's homer wins for yanks By KEN RAPPOPOftT AP Sports Writer Alex Johnsonn acquired just Monday from the Texas Rangers, went to work on Tuesday night in a New York Yankee uniform and hit a game- winning home run. "You have to get lucky sometime," said Johnson after his 420-foot belt in the 12th inning brought the Yankees a dramatic, 2-1 victory over the Boston Red Sox. sThe tremendous blast gave the Yankees a two-game lead over both the Red Sox and Baltimore Orioles in the hot American league east race. The Orioles lost a 6-5, 10-inning decision to the Milwaukee Brewers to fall into a second- place tie with the Red Sox. In Tuesday night's other American League games, the Cleveland Indians bombed the Detroit Tigers 12-6; the Minnesota Twins beat the Chicago White Sox 8-7 in 15 innings and the California Angels trimmed the Kansas City Royals 8-2. Johnson's game - winning blast, his fifth homer of the baseball season, came off reliever Diego Segui, 7-7. The victory went to Pat Dobson, 16-14, who won his sixth straight game with last-inning relief help from Sparky Lyle. Dobson gave up four hits in 11 innings. The Yankees tied the game 11 in the ninth inning on a walk Aussie levels Cup charge By BLOYS BRITT AP Sports Writer NEWPORT, R.I. (AP) — An Australian real estate promoter made it known months ago he would spend as much as $0 million to dislodge the America's Cup from the United States. He also may use a few more strong words to go with his money, the words being aimed at the Yankee crew manning the Courageous, a boat that very well may send him home in frustration. Alan Bond already has spent an estimated $6 million in his challenge to win the 123-yearold Cup, but in Tuesday's first race in_ a best-of-seven series his gold-colored Southern Cross went down in shocking defeat. Courageous, with crack helmsmen Ted Hood and Dennis Connor in control, outdistanced the Aussie challenger by 4 minutes and 54 seconds in light wind and came home at least one-half mile ahead. The two boats were to race the second heat beginning at 12:10 p.m. today over a 24.3- mile course located some seven miles offshore in Rhode Island Sound. "We're not discouraged," Bond said after the first race. "The crew hasn't lost its confidence. We made some purely human errors, and we won't make them again in the next race." But Bond saved his strongest words for Connor. He accused the American of shouting such phrases as "false start, false start" as the two boats maneuvered around the starting line. "I don't know what he was trying to do, or to prove, but if he does it again, I'm going to file a protest," Bond promised. Better sailing weather was expected for today's start. The forecast was for winds up to 16 knots, giving both boats a chance to operate at peak efficiency. The start of the first race was delayed by heavy fog on Rhode Island Sound and the two yachts didn't get away until 2:10 p.m., the latest possible time they could have started under terms of the match. The Americans have successfully defended the Cup 21 times since it was brought country in 1851. to this Wells elected to NAIA position ARKADELPHIA-John Duke Wells, athlelic director al Henderson State College, has been named to a three-year term as District 17 Chairman of the National Association of Inlercollegiate Athletics, according to A.O. Duer, executive director of the NAIA. Wells was selected chairman by the athlelic directors of Ihe olher Dislricl 17 schools. He has held Ihe position of district chairman previously during the early 1960's. "I'll have a good group of alhlelic directors to work with. We have one of the best directors in the NAIA. One thintt is for sure. I'll have more paper work now than the first lime I held the job," Wells said. Wells' lerm as chairman will expire in 1977.

Hope Star Knife Sports Irish close in on Oklahoma Brock sets steals record at 105 By ALEX SACHARE AP Sports Writer I/>u Brock has made good on his promise to the fans of St. Louis. Brock, who had said he wanted to break Maury Wills' stolen base record before the home fans at Busch Stadium, did just that Tuesday night, stealing second base in the first and seventh innings to boost his season total to 105 — one more than the standard set by Maury Wills in 1062. "I'm glad to get it over with, although I'd have liked it to be during a winning game," said the incomparable Brock, whose Cards were beaten 8-2 by the Philadelphia Phillies. Wills said he had mixed emotions about seeing his record broken, but hailed Brock's outstanding performance. After leading off the first inning with a single, he broke for second on the second pitch by Philadelphia right hander Dick Ruthven and easily beat the throw from catcher Bob Boone, which bounced into center field as Brock went to third. In the seventh inning, Brock again waited until Ruthven had an 0-1 count on Ron Hunt before streaking to second, once again well ahead of Boone's wide throw to the bag. The thefts by Brock, who has been thrown out 20 times this year, also lifted him to 740 for his career, eclipsing the mark of 738 set by Max Carey of the Pittsburgh Pirates in 1920. Only Ty Cobb, who had 802, and Eddie Collins, who had 743, stole more bases during their major league careers. Big names missing in camps after cuts By FRANK BROWN Associated Press Writer Some agonizing hours of suspense are over. Some National Football League careers are over. Running back Leroy Kelly became the fourth most productive rusher in NFL history with the Cleveland Browns. But the Browns put him on waivers early this season. Kelly latched on with the Oakland Raiders. Bui even he couldn't cut fast enough lo avoid the biggest tackle of all Tuesday. Although Lhe Raiders' policy is not to announce squad cuts, a list of 14 departures was compiled from men absent from Tuesday's practice.

Notre Dame's 31-7 triumph over Georgia Tech lifted the Fighting Irish from third to second in The Associated Press rankings and the 917-863 point margin is a little too close for comfort as far as No.l-rankecl Oklahoma is concerned.
