Dodgers Pan Travi By THE ASSOCIATED First baseman Tom Button lofted an eighth inning home run Monday night and Albu* ouerque sailed with it into undisputed first place in the Texas League for the first time this season. The Dodgers . had been tied with Arkansas for first since the season opened April 15. The Travelers, scheduled at home against Dallas-Fort Worth, were rained out for the fourth consecutive night. Button's big hit brought 3-2 victory over Amarillo and broke up a pitching duel between the loser's Paul Doyle and Albuquerque's John Hill.

(Courier News Photo by Dickie Hefner) TO GO OR NOT TO GO Dobbs' Six-Day Ordeal *y SANDY PADW* EL PASO, Tex. - (NBA) -While Paul Dietzel was busy packing the family trailer, West Point 1 * athletic emissaries arrived at Texas Western University quite embarrassed and equally desperate, When they lett, they were even more embarrassed and desperate.. West Point was after an old grad named Bobby Dobbs to reconstruct the ruins that Paul Dietzel had to suddenly left behind. Bunt Backfires Three Times A Triple Play - of Sorts By THE ASSOCIATED PRESS | he nteded when Rich homered in the fourth. The Phil. Ken Johnson's variety of 12 pitches might have fooled Willie Mays, but as far at Jose Pagan is concerned none «ould have been as evasive as Jim Bunning's bunt pitch. Bunning, so befuddled Pagan that he obliterated a budding Pittsburgh rally and went on to pitch Philadelphia to a 5-0 victory Monday night. Johnson held Mays hitless in Atlanta's 5-0 triumph over San Francisco, preventing the Giants' star from setting a National League records for career home runs. "I wasn't thinking about his record," Johnson said afterward. "I was just thinking about winning. I just try not to give him the same pitch twice. I have six pitches, and I throw them from two different angles so that gives me 12 different pitches." • * • * * Pagan didn't have much to say after his performance against Bunning. It came in the third inning of a scoreless game and followed no-out singles by pitcher Bob Veale and Matty Alou. Pagan came to the plate intending to bunt, but he let Running's pitch go by, and Veale was trapped off second. The throw from catcher Bob Decker to shortstop Dick Groat nailed the first out . Then while Bunning was concentrating on Pagan, Alou stole second. And when Bunning cp- cerned himself with Alou, the pitcher threw the ball into center field, allowing Alou to reach third. * * * By this time Pagan had two strikes on him, but that didn't stop him from pursuing the bunt. The squeeze play was called for. . Pagan, however, missed the pitch for strike three and the second out and Alou was trapped off third and run down for the third out. It was almost as if Pagan swung ™ or didn't swing — into a triple play. In ether NL games, St. touis handed Los Angeles its third straight 2-0 defeat and Houston edged Cincinnati 2-1. * * * Johnson limited the Giants to three hits while retiring Mays on a pop up, a strikeout and a liner. Mays, seeking his 512th home run, also walked. Johnson received support from Lee Thomas' three-run homer and Hank Aaron's two-run blast. Bunning stopped the Pirates on five hits and got the only run lies added four runs in the sixth, two en a single by Cookie Rojas. * * * Larry Jaster Joined the shutout pitchers, scattering seven hits and extending the Dodgers' scoreless inning string to 30. The Cardinals scored both of their runs in the sixth inning, Curt Flood driving in one with a double and Charlie Smith the other withh a sacrifice fly. Mike Cuellar pitched a five- hitter as Houston handed Cincinnati its seventh defeat in the last eight games. John Bateman doubled across ai, Astro run in the fifth, and Jim Gentile snapped a 1-1 with a run-scoring single in the sixth. * * * It takes two to tango but the way Sam McDowell and Del Crandall were working on Kansas City,-it looked more like a torrid twist with the Athletics in the middle. McDowell, Cleveland's fire- balling left-hander, hurled a one-hitter Monday night, beat- the Athletics 2-0 and afterwards he gave most of the credit to his journeyman catcher, Crandall. "I don't want to take anything away from our other catchers," the Indian ace said, "but Del has the experience. He came out to the mound twice and both times he caught things I was doing wrong."

"It's different now. We're working together in sort of an easy rhythm. Like a dance team." McDowell was waltzing along on a no-hitter for five innings against Kansas City before JOse Tartabull's looping single leading off the sixth broke the spell. The hit was the only one the A's managed as McDowell struck out eight. Larry Brown drove in both Indian runs with a two-out, bases-loaded single in the sixth inning. » * * Elsewhere in the Arn*ric*n League, Denny McLain hurled a four-hitter as Detroit blanked Minnesota 3-0, Chicago shaded Washington 3-2 despite a titantic home run by Frank Howard, and Boston handed New York its seventh straight loss 8-5. McLain got horn* run support from Norm Cash and A! Kaline to beat the Twins for his third victory of the season. Cash walloped a bases-empty homer in the fourth and McLain protected the slim lead until Kaline'i two- run shot in the eighth gave him some breathing spsce. Tom McCraw's ninth inning sacrifice fly beat the Senators for Chicago but Howard's homer stole the show. It was still White Sox Outfielder Spies 'Spy' WASHINGTON (AP) - The Chicago White Sox thought they caught a spy Monday night in (heir game with the Washington Senators. He was sitting in the right field score board taking pictures with a camera and talking to someone on a head set tele- phone. Floyd Robinson, the White Sox right fielder, complained to the umpires in the fifth inning and they investigated. It turned out the "spy" was only Dorman Hammer, the score board operator, who uses tbe earphones to receive instructions from the press box. GETAYAZOORIDER!

I've always considered thi Army job the finest iii the country. The strong personal desir« and strong personal temptation was there. "But I couldn't just pick up and leave. The timing was all wrong. We were in spring practice. I felt I couldn't leave the team and university in that situation. "Texas Western didn't put any pressure On me. That's the way people are down here. If I had chosen to take the job, I think I would have left with very little criticism." * * + Bobby Dobbs was the logical choice to coach Army. He was a fullback at West Point in 1943 and again in, 1944 when the Cadets won the national championship, . For three years (1952-54) he returned to the Point, coaching the backficld as an assistant to Earl Blaik. It was. a talented group Blaik had assembled — Dobbs, Dietzel, Jack Green (now head coach at Vanderbilt), George Blackburn (head coach at Virginia) and Vtece Lornbardi of tlia Gre.en Bay Packers. "During the 1954 ceasdn when we were going to play Pennsylvania," Dobbs said, "Col, Blaik was taken ill and he appointed me coach for the game. It was an honor to be selected from Bobby Dobbs that group of coaches. But • there was something else Involved. From that day, I knew I wanted to be head coach at Army." * * * In 1955, DAbbt ni6vtd to the University of Tulsa as head coach. He had started his playing career there before the :war intervened. Dobbs remained at Tulsa for five years, then coached Calgary in the Canadian League before cowing to Texas Western to inherit e team that lost all its gaitltt In 1964.

In addition, the hurler was a spectacle with the bat, rapping, two singles and a double. rising when it zoomed into the mezzanine seats in deepest center field, 480.feet from home plate. It was believed to be the longest homer in the five-year history of P.C. Stadium. Howard pooh-poohed the excitement over his shot. "I've hit 'em further," he said. "Would you believe it?" Teammate Don Lock didn't. He was convinced it was Howard's longest shot. '•'One of Blythevjlje's 11 hits was a tremendous home run by Charley Sexton, deep past the light poles.
