Bercher, a slender 170-pound not please Broyles. "The only improvement was that the pass defense was better than it has been all spring," Broyies said. "Everything else was less effective. The runners weren't running as well, blockers not blocking and passers not throwing as well." The game produced six Duruiier, a DIUIIUGI iiv-^w«..« me jjamv j,.

They appeared to be playing for some sort of championship Friday night -although it was down on the schedule as just another game. Baltimore won Kie game 3-2 in 15 innings filled with color, drama and heroics. TWo unbeaten pitchers started the game - Dave McNally, 3-0, for the Orioles, and am McDowell, 4-6 with pitched one-hitters in his two previous starts, for the Indians. )l UIC JllUiunui The first inning wasn't even over when a recorded bugle call livened the proceedings. The bugle, blaring forth from the public address system, signaled "Charge," and Baltimore leadoff batter Luis Aparicio responded with a triple. The bugle blared again, and Cleveland Manager Birdie Teb belts responded with a protest. "I think the fans can generate enough enthusiasm without artificial help from the ball club, said Tebbetts. "I don't expect to win the protest, but I'm going to keep it in and get a ruling on it." * * * The bugle, however, couldn' get Baltimore anything better Than a 1-1 tie, and the teams battled into extra innings with McNally leaving after holding the Indians to three hits in 10 innings and McDowell departing after scattering seven hits in 12. and it was announced that in ning would be the last because i Baltimore city curfew does no allow an Inning to be started after 11:59 p.m. Rocky Colavito and Fr« Whitfield singled off Dick Hal with one out for Cleveland, bu J edro Gonzalez popped up Then bounding from the dugou came Leon Wagner, who had left a New York hospital only i: lours before. * * * Wagner, who broke his nose i Wednesday night collisio with teammate Larry Brown stepped to the plate as a pine hitter and rapped a single to lef field, and the Indians led 2-1.

L. Pet. G.B. LOUISVILLE, Ky. (AP) Fifteen 3-year-old colts were to go to the post today in the 92nd unning of the Kentucky Derby, America's most glamorous icrse race. At stake were the glory that .omes from winning the top prize in thoroughbred racing and the winner's share of the 163,000 pot that equaled the second richest in Derby history. The field was cut by one when Mary Keim withdrew Sean B Indian after the lightly raced son of Seaneen suffered a train- ng injury. When the special Derby mu- uel windows reopened at 9 a.m., Kauai King held a slight edge on the odds board over Abe's Hope. Kauai King was posted at 5-2 and Abe's Hope at or.

And that was less than a tenth of the amount expected to be in the pool by post time, 3:30 p.m. CST. Stupendous, Mrs. H.C. Phipps' sixth Derby starter since 1928, and Amberoid, first Derby starter for Reginald N. Webster, president of the Thoroughbred Owners and Breeders Association, also were getting good play. The mutuel field — shortened to four horses when Mary Keim withdrew Sean E Indian because of injury — was posted at 14-1 in the advance betting. Longshots in the race were Quinta, an early speed horse who has won four races at seven furlongs or less; Sky Guy, an other quick starter with ques tionable staying power, ant Fleet Shoe, a $5,200 purchase a; a yearling in California. * * * Only a third of the 15 owners iave been in the Derby spotlight before today and, of those only COBLE'S FISHERMAN'S CALENDAR Tim* hf I** P*T.

(AP) - Severiteen-thousand red. roses ago, Mrs. Kingsley Walker began sewing her first garland for the Kentucky Derby winner. The colt in the winner's circle today was the 34th to wear the garland of roses designed by Mrs. Walker for Churchill ,}ue yesterday afternoon, trounc- ng Sudbury 10-1 at Little Park. The winners started fast, allying twice in the opening nning. They posted two more n the third before the Sudbury asses pushed across their lone counter in the lower half. Winners then scored three in the fourth and two in the fifth. Two Central double plays took :he cutting edge off the Sud- jury attack. • Foyettcvillt Wins EL DORADO, Ark. (AP) Mike Abbaitti of Fayetteville set two meet marks Friday night as the Bulldogs won the second annual Class AA western conference track and field meet.

Horseshoe or not, the decoration was like the one Mrs. Walk er designed after track officials asked her 34 years ago if she could come up with something better ttian the rose blanke* they were using. "I told them I could do a bet ter job and went out to Churchil Downs and started measurini horses to get an idea of the length needed," the elderly flor 1st said. MELBOURNE, Australia Kimpo Armafio, 134, Ghana, outpointed Gilberto Biondi, 136, Italy, 12. The garland is simple—about a foot and a half wide and long nough to hang around the animal's knees. . oi Approximately 500 roses are needed to fashion the garland. "hese are grown by another xrnisville florist. "If he doesn't have them, I fly hem down from Chicago," 1 she said. • -Mrs. Walker, a peppery gray- iiaired widow, enlists 'the help'df her daughter and granddaughter to sew by hand the roses on the green satin cloth. It's seven- hour job for the three of them. Earlier, two other assistanti wire each rose stem. "I trained my daughter and granddaughter to 'do the actual sewing with,me," she said. "I don't trust, just anyone with it." Mrs. Walker also buys 100 extra roses "for people' 'who come in here and want to "sew on a rose. Of course, I can't let their rose remain.
