Insurance (For Flag?) For Phils By RALPH BERNSTEIN Associated Press Sports Writer PHILADELPHIA (AP) - In acquiring pitchers Larry Jackson and Bob Buhl for his Philadelphia Phillies, John Qulnn acted like a general manager who is thinking pennant Quinn dealt youth for age. He reached for the one .ingredient most experts said might keep the Phillies from the National League flag - pitching depth. To get it, he gave up 23-year- old Adolpho Phillips, 22-year-ol Ferguson Jenkins and 28-year- old John Herrnstein to the Chicago Cubs Thursday. Quinn, whose reputation as a shrewd trader rapidly is becoming legend, admits he was thinking of today in adding the 34- year-old Jackson and the 37- year-ol Buhl to the Phillies' pitching staff. "We thave a solid club," Quinn observed. "But everyone was asking: 'What can we c'o to improve our pitching; -vho can we use for a fourth starter?' "Well, now we have not only a fourth starter :•• Jackson, but a fifth in Buhl." Manager Gene Mauch, of course, wasn't talking about pennants, but lie appeared as if he was celebratin;; Christmas in April. He said: "These two ideally compliment our ball club. If there were any doubts of our pitching depth, Jackson and Buhl rectify that. We'll start Jackson Sunday against Cincinnati, and work Buhl in as a spot starter as soon as we can." You don't have to be a mental gymnast to grasp the Quinn- Maueh mathematics in the trade. Jackson won 14 games and Buhl 13 last season. If they can repeat or even come'close to those figures, the Phillies figure to be rough. Mauch now has a starting rotation of Jim Sunning, 19-8 in 1965; Chris Short, 18-11; Ray Culp, 14-10; Jackson, 14-21, and Buhl, 13-11. He also has lefty Bo Belinsky and Grant Jackson, a promising young southpaw. In the bullpen there is Gary Wagner, Roger Craig and Steve Rid- zik. The beauty of the deal from the Philadelphia standpoint is that they gave up three players who would see little service for two starting pitchers. Some experts still are trying to figure how Quinn, pried loose Bill White and Dick Groat from the St. Louis Cardinals last winter. This latest caper has to revive the thinking that the Phillies general manager carries a gun. Herrnstein, who hit .2CO last year, had one hit in 10 at bats so far in 1966, striking out seven times. Phillips was hitless in three at bats and Jenkins had worked 2 1-3 innings, giving up three hits and two runs. He was 8-6 at Little Rock in 1965 and 2-1 with the Phillies. NEW POSITION—Tony Kubek, retired from baseball after a career with the New .York Yankees, works in the office of his cheese firm in Wausau, Wis. Kubek will retain his ties- with baseball, however. He has signed as a broadcaster with NBC-TV. Sanders' Soaring Son Is Good Luck By HAROLD V. RATLIFF Associated Press Sports Writer DALLAS (AP) — Doug Sanders, who talks as much as he plays — which turned out to be all tlie time — set out with a two-stroke lead in the second round of the $85,000 Dallas Open Golf Tournament today. Dapper Doug, colorful in tongue and dress, shot a four- under-par 67 Thursday to top the first round and show why he was one of the favorites. He was playing in bis 15th tournament of the year, which is all of them when you consider the fact that he couldn't play in the Azalea Open at Wilmington, N.C., because he was in the Tournament of Champions at Las Vegas that was being run off at the same time. Sanders is the only "name" player making all the tournaments and he's doing it because wants to win one of the big ones _ something he hasn't yet accomplished. Sanders has captured three tournaments and been in contention in all the others, and he leads the money-Winners for the year. And he figures he ought to win the Dallas Open since his "good luck piece" — his son Brad, 8— ias arrived to push him on. : 'You know," said Doug as he got in some tall talking in the press room after he shot his 67 to take a two-stroke lead over COURIER NEWS m FRIDAY, APRIL 22, I9M PAGE TEN ' Miller Barber of San Antonio Ken Still of Tacoma, Wash., and 'Bob Goalby of Belleville, 111., "this kid has followed me seven weeks in a row.

Boston-Lakers Today, Sunday LOS ANGELES, (AP)- Boston Celtics' coach Red Auerbach, never a retiring fellow, is about to dp just that. But instead of the customary gold watch, his players would like to give the flamboyant coach a National Basketball Association trophy. It isn't that Auerbach doesn't have one — he has eight, eluding the last seven given, but the Celtics want him to finish as a winner. 'Boston takes a 2-1 lead over the Los Angeles Lakers into tonight's game in the best-of-seven-title series, and a Celtic victory would virtually assure them of the NBA championship. The teams meet again Sunday in Boston, while the sixth and seventh games, if necessary, will be here next Tuesday and in Boston next Thursday. G irl Runner Is Shut Out In Male Competition LYNCHBURG, Va. (A?) -N Pretty Kalhy Switzer's first venture into the man's world of college track brought her a last- place finish, but she feels she was a winner, after all. "Finishing last didn't bother me," said the Lynchburg College coed after running the mile Thursday against Frederick- College. "I was just praying I'd finish, period. I did, so that's one battle I won." As it turned out, Kathy — a 19-year-old brunette who Saturday night will compete for the "Miss Lynchburg" beauty crown — was just half of the feminine contingent on the Lynchburg team Thursday. In a surprise to the five-times normal crowd of 400 that showed up for the dual meet, Coach Aubrey Moon entered a sophomore coed, Marty Newell, in the I She beat out a Frederick fellow for fourth place in a field of five in the presentable time of 2:31. Miss Switzer was one of six "in the mile run and was clocked in 6:02. She was worried about finishing because her normal distance is the 880, and. Miss Newell had pre-empted her spot in that race. "Kathy and I were nervous at the start," said Miss Newell. "But all the boys were so nice — they made us fee! at home. I was depressed al first, to finish fourth. But now I've had time to reflect, I'm rather pleased." Miss Switzer had very little time to do much talking after the Thursday meet. She had lots of running around, of a different sort, to do. She is sports editor of the college newspaper, the Critograph, and she had to hurry up and write a story about the track meet. The deadline was only hours away.

He's already won three games — and one fight. Marichal, who last season tangled with John Roseboro in one of the most celebrated brawls in baseball history, pitched the San Francisco Giants to their fifth straight victory Thursday by checking the Chicago Cubs 5-2 on six hrts. It was Marichal's third straight complete game victory, and emphasized that he is winning his battle to wipe out any mental scars left by the bat- swinging incident that cost him an eight-day suspension and a $1,760 fine. But Marichal is just living up to the prediction he made before the season started. "I'll never forget that day," he admitted. "But I don't think it affected my pitching the rest of last season. "And it won't bother it this year." * * * However, there were those, such as Philadelphia Manager Gene Mauch, who wondered, particularly when Marichal won only three games and lost four after sitting out his suspension.

Marichal is proving you can't see what doesn't exist and, although he will never forget that day last year, there is little doubt that the only thing he wants people to remember is his pitching. * * * In the three victories so far this season, the Giants' ace right-hander has allowed only 16 hits, striking out 23 while walking just two, and allowing only two earned runs for a microscopic .067 earned run average. The loss was the fifth straight for the hapless Cubs, who announced after the game they had traded pitchers Bob Buhl and Larry Jackson to Philadelphia for outfielders John Herrnstein and Adolfo Phillips and pitcher Ferguson Jenkins. The Phillies, who need pitching help, dropped a 5-4 decision to Atlanta for their third straight loss, while Pittsburgh, which doesn't seem to need any help, edged Cincinnati and Milt Pappas 2-1 for its sixth straight victory and eighth in nine games. In the only other National League game scheduled,, St. Louis edged the New York Mets 5-4. Chicago bejted California 86 in the only American League game scheduled as rookie Tom Agee scored five runs for the White Sox. Marichal, who struck out 12 Cubs, got more support than he needed as Willie Mays and Jim Hart each homers. It smacked two-run was Mays' fourth homer of the season and No. 509 of his career, leaving him only two short of Mel Ott's National League record. Eddie Mathews set a major league record by playing in his 2,009th game as a third baseman for the Braves, who rode Chris Short's wildness and Rico Carty's key triple lo their victory over the Phillies. * * * The Phillies built a 4-2 lead but Short walked Lee Thomas with the bases loaded in the sixth inning to force in a rim, then got into trouble in the eighth when lie walked Joe Torre. Carty followd with a triple, driving in the tying run, then raced home when Short uncorked a wild pitch. Pappas, acquired from Baltimore in .the Frank Robinson trade, made an effective first start in the National League, allowing only five hits and striking out seven in six innings. But Pittsburgh's Boh Veale was a little sharper, allowing only six hits and striking out nine in going the distance. Pappas was tagged for a solo homer by Jesse Conder in the third inning, then surrendered the winning run in the sixth on Matty Alou's triple and a successful squeeze bunt by Gene Alley. * * * Curt Flood collected three hits for the Cardinals, including a two-run homer in the ninth, inning that pulled them from behind against the Mets. Bob Gibson pitched a four-hitter for the victory, his 13th against two losses lifetime against New) York. Agee hit his third homer for the White Sox, all against the Angels, and also collected a sin gle and two walks while reaching base a fifth time when he was hit by a pitch. He also stole a base. Pete Ward collected one of Chicago's key hits, a bases- loaded triple in a four-run third inning uprising. G. Carpentier Out-Talks Jack National League W. L. Pc.tG.B. Pittsburgh San Fran. ..

Paso at Dallas-Fort Worth Austin at Amarillo By BEN OLAN Associated Press Sports Writer NEW YORK (AP) - They say that any time Jack Dempsey, the old Manassa Mauler, scored a knockout victory it was a work of art. He flattened Georges Carpen|tier, the Orchid Man from France, in four rounds almost 45 years ago in a world heavyweight title bout that drew box ing's first million dollar gate. And Thursday night. Carpentier, looking like a million dollars at 72 years of age, was at a New York art gallery, swapping verbal punches with Dempsey. Carpentier won this time. He and Dempsey are in the same business again. They're restaurateurs, and the Frenchman insisted, "the food in my place is much better than in Jack's." Dempsey, surprised, stepped back without saying a'word. For their verbal match, Carpentier weighed 165, three pounds less than he did when he fought Dempsey in Jersey City, N.J., on July 2, 1921. Dmpsey, who's 70, weighed 220. "I was about 138 when I fought Georges," he recalled. Carpeutier came to New York to participate with Dempsey, Gene Tunney and Tommy Loughran, Ihe lalter two also opponents of the Frenchman during boxing's golden era, in the opening of an exhibition of paintings by George Bellows, the artist celebrated for his boxing paintings. "Carpentier would have been the champion if he had hit me on the jaw instead of on the cheekbone with a hard right early in the fight." Dempsey said while standing in front of a Bellows' painting of the famous match. "Georges was the greatest European fighter ever come to America." "There isnt too much boxing interest in France now. Tlie best prospect there is Marcel Cerclan Jr., Carpentier said, referring to the welterweight son of the former middleweight champion. "But he was held to a draw by second-rate fighter recently and doesnl seem to have the quality of his father. YOU DONT HAVE TO LEAVE ARKANSAS TO GET A GOOD JOB!
