England (UPD —Chuck McKinley and Darlene Hard, America's top-ranked SACRAMENTO (LTD —Thanks' men's and women's tennis play to the 1963 legislalure, boxing is saved and the Fish and Game Commission is stripped of its regulatory powers. Aside from these actions, the lawmakers didn't do much to the California sports scene. They introduced bills touching on everything but only a handful trickled through. A special session, called by Gov. Edmund G. Brown, could consider more sporting bills. But it is unlikely. By far the hottest sports story during the six-month general session was the unsuccessful attempt to abolish boxing. Brown, long a foe of boxing, labeled the sport a "barbaric spectacle" and asked that it be outlawed "completely." Two Republican assemblymen, Carl Britichgi of Redwood City and Alan Paltec of Salinas, introduced a constitutional amendment to permit voters to outlaw the game, and a resolution requesting the state Athletic Commission to immediately suspend all promoter licenses. Six weeks later, the amendment was given a polite hearing and soundly ko'd. The Fish and Game Commission was inadvertently stripped of its regulatory powers when lawmakers failed to pass a once-routine bill extending the commission's authority to set fishing and hunting regulations. The bill got hung up because some legislators insisted on an amendment estabb'sh- ing a two-year, three-point only rule in Northeastern California.

Following the afternoon of golf the monthly Stag night dinner will be held in the clubhouse. CUBS RECALL LEMAY. CHICAGO (UPD — Left-handed pitcher Dick Lemay has been recalled from Atlanta of the International League by the Chicago Cubs. The Cahs made room for Lemay by sending veteran infielder Kea Aspromonte to Salt Lake City of the Pacific Coast League on 24-hour recall. SCHOOLING PAYS NEW YORK (UPD - Tlie average income of college graduates is nearmg $10,000 a year, according to the Census Bureau. The figure crossed $9,500 a year in 1961. It has been going up steadily throughout the postwar period. ers, advanced today with straight-sets victories in the rain- dampened Wimbledon championships. McKinley, chunky, 22-year-old Trinity (Tex.) University student from St Ann, Mo., reached the third round of men's singles with a 7-5. 6-i. 8-6 triumph over Alan Lane of Australia. Miss Hard opened her quest for the women's crown by overwhelming Joyce Fulton of England. G-0, 6-0 in a first-round match. In an all-Amcrican first round women's match, Tory Ann Fretz of Harrisburg, Pa., defeated Ann Prosen of Orlando, Fla., 6-1 6-L Later today Jliss Hard was scheduled to return to court 12 to play a second-round match. Dennis Ralston, recently crowned national collegiate champion, drew the toughest assignment among the U American sur\'ivors in men's singles. The 20-year-old University of Southern California junior was pitted against Ramanathan Khrishnan of India, a veteran Davis Cup player, in a featured second round match. Ralston, altliough imseeded, was made the fifth choice at 8-1 in the pre-tournament odds on the strength of his triumph last weekend in the NCAA championships at Princeton. N.J. He posted a straight set victory over Austria's Ladislav Legenstein in his opener Jlonday but could run i n t o trouble against the more experienced Krishnan. Chuck JIcKinley of San Antonio, Tc.v., America's No. 1 player and the only seeded Yank in the men's division, drew Alan Lane of Australia as his second round opponent. There were two other U. S.­ Aussie battles on today's program. Lanky Frank Forehling of Coral Gables, Fla., meets Barry Gcraghty and Arthur Ashe of Richmond, Va., the first American Negro male to play at Wimbledon, faces John Hillebrand. Donald Dell of Bethesda, Md., Cliff Buchholz of St. Louis and Eugene Scott of St. James, N.Y, were eliminated Tuesday during another damp, chilly day at the AU-England Club. Forehling, ranked second be­ hmd JIcKinley in the U.S. turned back Dell, 1-6. 8-6, 6-1, 3-6, 6-3. Buchholz was eliminated by Italian Davis Cupper Nichola Pietrangeli, 6-3, 3-6, 4-6, 6-3, 6-3, and Scott bowed to Owen Davidson of Australia, in three bitterly-contested sets. 9-7, 6-4, 9-7. Beatty wins mile in 3:56 TORONTO (UP!)-Jim Beatty, a Los Angeles insurance man, thrilled 17,242 track and field fans in Toronto Tuesday night when he ran the mile in 3:56 flat in the International Track Meet at Varsity Stadium. Beatty, pushed by teammate Jim GreUe who finished 1-10 of a second l>dund, was 1.6 secimds short of the world mark but 2.8 faster than the Canadian open record of 3:58.8 set in Canada in 1954 by Dr. Roger Bannister. In the half mile, Jim Dupre and Ron Whitney of the Los Angeles Striders finished ahead of Toronto's Bill Crothers, who had beaten both men in St. Louis last weekend with the fastest half-mile time in the world this year and the second best in history. Dupre and WTiitney both were timed in 1:50.5 but Dupre was a nose ahead.

Cotton Tensley Jr. said Tuesday. Sprint star Winonly was a stand-in for Crozier earlier in the meeting and captured the $100,000 Califomian, but then Winonly had to be laid up also. The featured attraction in today's racing was the $10,000 Veterans of World War I Purse bringing out a field of seven older filhes and mares for a seven furlong distance. Drill Site pulled away to a relatively easy two-length victory Tuesday in the $22,750 Cortez Handicap at IVi mile. Your Alibhai was second and Aldershot finished third.

Dick Radatz looking better all the time By United Press International The gag around the American League is that Dick Radatz may win the MVP award but that his arm will be so sore by then that he won't be able to comb his hair for the occasion. Actually, the Boston strtxigboy's chances of winning the most valuable player award are looldng less and less like a gag. And even though he has appeared m 40 per cent of the Red Sox' games so far, including six of their last eight games, he doesn't seem to be worried about arm trouble. "I don't see any cause for concern," he says. "My pitching motion is smooth. I'm not one of those horky-jerky guys." The sLx-foot-sbc 240 pounder was plenty smooth Tuesday night as he worked both ends of a twi- night doubleheader against the Cleveland Indians and preserved 4-1 and 3-2 victories that boosted the Red Sos within games of first place. Strikes Out Seven The overpowering Radatz faced a total of 10 men and struck out seven of them. He saved Bill Monbouquette's llth victory in the opener although tagged for a ninth-inning homer by Ma.x Alvis and then came back to nail down Earl Wilson's seventh triumph. Radatz has appeared in 28 games so far and has a shot at Mike Fomeles" AL record of 70 set in I960, particularly in view of manager Johnny Pesky's announced intention of using him any time I think it's vital." Things have reached such a pass now that Fenway Park fans begin chanting "We want Radatz" as early as the fifth inning. The Red So.x clinched Tuesday night's opener with three runs in the eighth inning and rode to vie tory in the nightcap when Rad atz' roommate, Dick Stuart, drove in two runs on a pair of smgles and Lou Clinton belted his ninth homer. The Chicago white Sox climbed within nine percentage points of the first-place New York Yankees by beating them for the fourth straight time this season, 2-1, and in other AL games Minnesota defeated Detroit, 1-0, Kansas City walloped Washington, 8-4, and Baltimore blasted Los Angeles, 10-0. Redlands Daily Facts WeA, June 26. 1963 -17 Glamor swimmer Distance swimmer out to destroy ugly girl image Challenge to cross first in yacht race NEWPORT, R.L (UPI) - Challenge, owned by George F. Johnson of Ardmore. Pa., was expected to sail across the finish line first today in the Annapolis-to- Ne«Tx>rt yacht race. The new 68-foot aluminum sloop opened such a big lead over the fleet of 88 yachts Tuesday night that the escorting Coast Guard cutter, Chincoteague, had trouble finding her. However, she was eventually sighted 65 miles from NewTJort and well ahead of her rivals. D>-na, Clayton Ewing's 57-foot aluminum yawl from Easton. Md., and Jubilee, a 60-foot yawl owned by Francis D. Wetheril! of Philadelphia, were among Challenge's closest rivals since the start of the 473-mile race last Saturday. Many of the yachts were sighted close to the New Jersey shore Tuesday as they struggled along with spinnakers in light, variable winds. Justin Wasley's Windqiiest was located sailing along the beach north of Cape May at less than four knots. SOMETHING FOR THE POOL—A little large for an ornamental float, perhaps, but the gent with the old-fashioned palm frond fan is interested principally in comfort—of any era. He's floating on a superbnoyant new-type polystyrene foam plastic. Less glamorous applications call for its use in docks, diving rafts, and boats. Palmer first on money- winning list DUNEDIN, Fla. (UPI) — Although he finished third in Sunday's three-way playoff for the U.S. Open golf championship, Arnold Palmer moved into first place on the PGA money-winning list with earnings of $63,34S for 1963.

Boros jiunped into second place on the tour by capturing the $16,000 first prize plus the $1,500 bonus, giving him winnings of $59,680. Jack Nicklaus. who failed to make the cutoff in the Open, dropped to third place as his earnings remained at $58,690. Cupit, who matched Palmer's $8,500 at Brookline, Mass., advanced into lOth place with $19,564. Tony Lema ranked fourth with $52,413 and Gary Player stood fifth with $43,940. Others id the top 10 were Dow Finsterwald $36,518, Gene LitUer $24,576 Dan Sikes Jr., $20,538 .and Bmce Crampton $19,979. By BILL MCCORMICK Newspaper Enterprise Assn. NEW YORK — (NEA) — The tall, lissome blonde waiting to take off at Idlewild International Airport looked like a model leaving for high fashion shops in the Swiss Alps. Or a member of the Jet Set headed fbr a yacht on the RiWera. "That's the way it should be." grinned Mary JIargaret Revell when somebody told her she looked like anj-thing but a lady athlete. "People abroad have a terribly WTOng image of the American woman and our female athletes are domg as mudi as anybody to make the picture ugly.' The distance swimmer who conquers stretches of water that repulse mere men swished her long, curly locks, bUnked her la-eUy blue eyes and otherwise looked feminine. "Foreigners have the idea that .•Vmerican women wear the pants." continued the nubile na- tator. "When we send over women athletes who look like stevedores, we confirm their beUef that we are bossy and demanding. "When they first saw me they wouldn't believe it. 'Oh. no!' they said, 'You're not an athlete, you're a woman.' " Mary Margaret, who is 25, not only startled Europeans with her femininity on her first trip abroad last year, she wowed *em with her prowess, becoming the first person to swim the Bay of Algecuras in Spain (7 miles in 3 hours, 31 minutes), the Marmara Sea (20 miles, 8 hours, 13 minutes) and round trip from the Black Sea to Marmara Sea (19 miles, 4 hours, 53 minutes). This year she broke 'era up completely by becoming the first to swim a round trip of the Messina Straits, Sicily (13 miles, 5 hours, 22 minutes). "That ugly image of women athletes isn't fair to our youth," continued Mary Margaret. "How can we expect American girls to go in for sports if they think they're gouig to wind up looking like some of the outstanding competitors? "A girl can be an athlete and still be feminine. All she has to do is realize that she doesn't have to out-man men, and dress and act hke a real woman. I blame the manufacturers of sports wear for some of the false unpression. It's pretty hard for some girls to look feraine in very masculine tailored slacks, as an example."

The funeral will be at 11 a.m., EST, Wednesday at St Alban's Episcopal Church here. Big, fat dud Enlarged strike zone has little effect INDIANAPOLIS - (NEA) Well, that enlarged strike zone is a big, fat dud. It exists only in the minds of the baseball rules committee, which had altruistic hopes of help- uig the poor, foriom pitcher. The mahgned moundsmen can't get the high strike when they need it, according to them. The Iiitters, of course, argue the other way, contending the umpires call the high pitch only when it will hurt them. They agree there's no difference in the strike zone. "They called the high one at the start, but it's settled back down now." said Chicago White Sox chief scout Charley Metro, who sees professional baseball throughout the country. • "I think they've called the higher and lower strike more in the Pacific Coast League than anywbere else. Of course, I've only seen four games there. I tell you one thing it's done. It's made the batter swmg. You see fewer 3-2 counts." Rollie Hemsley, manager of the IndianapoUs Indians of the American Association, feels the strike zone depends entirely on how the umpire positions himself behind the catcher. "There's no difference; it's just according to who's umpiring." he observed. "Some will call it (high strike), some won't. If he's umpiring low. you won't get the high one. If he's standing up. you won't get the low one. "It might help a guy like (Warren) Hacker, who throws that high one." Hemsley added. Hacker, the 38-year-old right­ hander with the Indians, says, "No help." "I don't think it has changed any," he explained. "They won't call the high pitch. It's just like it used to be, they call about one out of 10." Mike Joyce, in only his second season of pro ball, started the season in the American League. 'It looked as if at the beginning of the year some umpires were concentrating on the high pitch and forgetting the low one," he said. "There are a few umpires vbo make a point to call the high one. But the strike zooe seems to shrink every time around. sits Catcher Jerry McNerty back with the umpire. "Once in a while you might get a high pitch," he said. "Other than that, I haven't noticed any difference." Now let's hear from the hitters. "The strike zone seems bigger." commented big Jun Koranda, "but I don't know if it is any higher. I don't know whether they are calling the high pitches. Most control pitchers try to keep the ball down anyway." "I imagine it has changed some," commented Gene Stephens. "Actually the change hasn't been much. There is less area for mistakes now. though." Apparently the enlarged strike zone is like the middleage spread. It's there, but no one notices the difference on himself. The good hitters are still hitting and the good pitchers are still winning. And the imipires go right on calling 'em as they see 'em. Is Liston fit to fight? 5IIAMI BEACH (UPI) - Local boxing commission chairman Fred Aaronson wants the World Boxing Association to make sure that Sonny Liston. who cancelled his fight here due to a knee in- jurj-, is fit to fight Floyd Patterson in Las Vegas next month. Aaronson explained that the big heavyweight c h a m p i o n of Lhe worid is still carried on the Miami Beach commission record as "ill and unavailable" and that iie should be formally released from this status by the commission here before being allowed to fight elsewhere. Liston was scheduled to fight Patterson for the championship here in April, but mjured his knee and the match was off. Aaronson said Monday that Liston is not under any obligation now to fight here, but that "it seems only right that if a fighter withdraws from a fight in one town because of an injury, that mjury should be certified as cured before be fights in another VfBX town." He said both Miami Beach and Las Vegas are members of the WBA,
