Willie Is Forced to Admit If: He's a Hero Again NEW YORK (Ar>) - Jim Da-1 play?" Herman ashed rhetorl tenport hit the game-winning homer in the 17th inning and extended San Francisco's win- Ing streak to 12 games, but the Giants probably owe more to a little radio in the dressing room listened to by Willie Mays. Herman Franks, the Giants' manager, revealed the part the radio played after San Francisco edged the Mets 5-4 Friday night in' a marathon game that lasted 4 hours and 29 minutes. "You think they don't want to cally, teasing- his audience. "Well, listen to this: "Mays' leg was really bothering him. It got sorer and sorer from the time he fell, and when he came up in the seventh I told him to get a hit and I'd send Bob Shaw in to run for him. But he popped out, so I sent him into the dressing room and told him to call it a night. "Then we score three runs, and now he's in the clubhouse all undressed. So he runs over Cards Are 2-0 Downtown to his locker, puts his suit back on, comes out and tells me he's playing and goes up in the eighth and hits the homer to tie it." The homer, Mays' 10th of the season and 515th of his career, completed the Giants' comeback after they had trailed 4-0 after five innings. Mays, reticent to talk about the incident, finally admitted: "Yen, If there wai no ridl I'd been under a ihower. I go back just in time. Fuentei wa making th last out "I'm not trying to be a hero— or dramatic. We're just tryin to help each other. I'm hurtin we're down 4-0, so I go out an I'm undressed when! hear Hal er (catcher Tom Haller) hit hi homer. So now it's 4-2 and the 4-3, so I felt we had a chance to The View from Hen ED HAYES Coach Still Here THIS IS THE TIME OF YEAR COACHES START LOOK- Ing around in earnest. It is also the time when schools look around and just as earnestly. Young Jack Goodman, with uncommon knowledge of football and the talent to teach it and the personality that young men lay down their hides for, is one of those coaches that schools, with vacant chairs in their athletic offices, pursue. He doesn't go to them. They come to him. * * * So far, the Blytheville Junior High coach has said no to various offers. He likes it in Blytheville. His wife likes it here, too, because this is her hometown, for one reason, and for a lot of other reasons, too. Jack wouldn't mind if the new season started right now. Today. Or tomorrow. He's ready. Yeah, but how about the Papooses? Well, they'd be ready as the next guy. "About 14 eighth graders have been working real hard this spring," the coach said. "We lost about 10 starters, 15 altogether." Jack doesn't mind a whole team getting wiped out by promotion to senior high. "I believe in playing all the ninth graders we can, to get 'em ready for the Chicks. That's the way you build football players." * * * Goodman has arranged seven games for next September and October. He had a rugged time getting that many. There's an open date Sept. 8 and he'd like to fill it yet. .Other than that, he's satisfied with the bookings. • There are no games in November. "We like to close down In November," he said. He feels that two months of solid action is more than sufficient for the youngsters. Jack believes in getting out before drudgery takes hold. * * * Papooses' first game Is here against Paragould, Sept. 15, 7:30. Next, it's MacArthur at Jonesboro, Sept. 22; Jackson, Tenn., here, Sept. 29; Annie Camp of Jonesboro here, Oct. 6; at West Memphis, Oct. 3; at Dyersburg, Oct. 20; and the windup against Caruthersville here, Oct. 27 at 7 o'clock. Last year Jack's Paps showed a 4-2-1 record. They're just breathing for the time when they can make up for the losses to Jackson and MacArthur and the tie with West Memphis. "We'll be small next year again as usual," the coach said, "but very tough." On Old Nine Yet HAD THE WEATHER NOT BEEN SO COOL AND MOIST this spring, the golfing folks at Blytheville Country Club would be just about now beginning to move over to the new back nine. So, it'll probably be a few days yet. At least. . Then must begin the work on the old nine. By mid-July 18 should be playable. 6 Races Sunday OTHER THAN A SKY THAT WAS NOT CLEAR, EVERY- thing was in readiness this morning for the stock car races at Blytheville Speedway Sunday night. Six races are logged at 8 o'clock, time trials at 6:30. Hooker Hood of Memphis, who collected $250 in prize* last week, indicated he'd return. The track was graded yesterday and would not have to be watered down again until sometime Sunday. "Unless it rains," whispered Harold Pery. It's something he'd rather not talk about.

"He eomw running back out, yelling, 'Let me try it, let me try it,'" said Franks. "So I said go ahead. And he went out an played another nine innings." Mays turned his right ankle racing out a single in the fourth inning, falling as he passed the first base bag. But he continued to play until the seventh when he virtually was ordered to leave by Franks. By THE ASSOCIATED PRESS The San Francisco Giants were having a lot more trouble they had filling it up.

McDowell went into the room for the second consecutive Fri day night before facing the Baltimore Orioles but came out of the game with the same result —no result Although he put on another stingy performance, Cleveland's ace left-hander wasn't around at the finish w the Indians edged Baltimore 4-S in 11 innings. McDowell, who has been 4-0 since pitching a second straight one-hitter two weeks ago, departed for a pinch hitter in the bottom of the eighth inning, trailing M. He allowed he Orioles only four hits but walked six. * * ¥ He pitched » slightly stronger game against the Orioles the previous Friday night, allowing them only one run on seven hits in 12 innings. But still he couldn't get the victory. He left with the game tied 1-1, and the Orioles eventually won 3-2 in the 15th. That kind of treatment is enough to keep McDowell in his pre-game room. He follows that routine because he doesn't like' anyone to bother with him before a game. 'I don't want to relax. I want to be nervous and scared," McDowell explains. "I deliberately work myself up. I go into a room and shut myself away. I keep going over the hitters, over and over." * * * In other American league games, Minnesota defeated Washington 9-5, California beat Boston 4-1, Detroit edged Chica^ go 5-4 and New York trimmed Kansas City 4-2.
