K FOR MRS. DUNLAP IN TRANS-MISSISSIPPI Dot Germain in Championship Flight The View from Here ED HAYES * * * » FORT SMITH, Ark. (AP) Mrs. J. J. Freeman Jr. of Little Rock and Mrs. McLoud Sicard of Fort Smith led Arkansas golfers in the Trans-Mississippi Women's Amateur tourna- They Miss Pruett IT HASN'T REACHED A ROLLING BOIL BUT THERE Is still hope on the campus at Arkansas State College that Rector's Allen Pruett will pitch in with the Indians. The reading public knows the basketball sharpshooter has : -. signed with Mississippi State. Even the non-reading public - knows it by now. Should A-Slate shut off hope? Well, the Indians are free .Vto hope and pray but Jesse Bucy says: "It won't do 'em ...any good." --. ***... Bucy has, been coach at Rector the past dozen years and •; Pruett's probably the reason he's stayed around the last -six or so. .: • However, even with Pruett gone now, Bucy plans to stay on. "A man talked to me just the other day about .leaving but I told him I was just like an ole tree planted over there now." Bucy, the wise ole oak, was in Blytheville Sunday with his American Legion baseball squadron. Rector lost. Bucy had a good alibi. All the coaches who come into Light Brigade Field have handy a set of excuses. ; But Bucy had the best of all: Pruett wasn't there. * * * "^ Bucy said: "We would've had a fine (baseball) team --this year if we could've kept Pruett. He's a fine pitcher, " a fine one." Allen is eligible but he was hired as a counselor at a "summer basketball camp in North Carolina, the only high ^school boy on the staff. Bucy could not fault the boy for I taking the post. "It's a good job," he said. "Mississippi .-.State got it for him. There was nothing under the table r about it. I "They have a league at night, so he'll be able to play r basketball all summer. Oh, yes, he's planning to come ? : back for the all-star game in August." :',. Pruett was named to the East all-star group over the : weekend in a move that was as surprising as including Win :..Rockefeller in a list of millionaires. Ole Pals To some, though, it was surprising that Coming's 6'4 Bob Black was named to the East all-star roster, although a college scout did tell me the boy could make it almost anywhere. "I hope Black does well," Bucy said, "but I don't know how he'll do down there against all those big boys. All I know is that he made it rough on us all year." It is surmised that Bucy, one of the all-star coaches, exerted some influence in getting the Corning kid on the select -roster. Black was the big rebounder in 2-A last winter. He would've been one of the better shooters in any league. * * * Bucy and Dwight Williams are pals from way back— from way back in Oak Grove. They both played professional baseball and they have both made marks as better than ment Monday. Each carded a 9-over-par on the Hardscrabble Country Club course. They and Dorothy Germain were the only three state golfers to make the championship flight in qualifying rounds. Miss Germain, of Blytheville, got the final spot in the flight when she made a 3-foot putt on the second hole of a sudden- death playoff with Suanne Wil- lis of Catoosa, Okla, and Lid Fee Matthews of Portsmouth Ohio. Each shot 83. Three former state champion had their difficulties. Lea Larson of Clarksville 1962 champion, missed the play off by one stroke.

Bragan, the manager of the Atlanta Braves, had just hear< about the deal in which the Phillies obtained pitchers Bob Buhl and Larry Jackson from the Chicago Cubs for three players. "That might just give them the pennant," Bragan mumbled. Monday night, those words came back to haunt Bragan as Sis Braves bumped against the Phillies in an twi-night double- leader. The Phillies won both ;ames, 6-2 and 6-4 The winning pitchers: Jackson and Buhl. Quinn, the Phillies' general manager, sat in his private box ooking like the cat who ate the canary. year. In 11 major league seasons he's averaged 11 homers and 66 RBI while batting .309. This season is just slightly more than one-third gone, and he's rapidly approaching those figures as well as hitting .330, the second best average in the league. * * + His latest effort was a dramatic, performance. McCool had just relieved starter Joey Jay in the eighth inning, coming on .. , , , . . . lllC Clglltll JJ.111111CJ, V.U11L111£ \Jlt He has been accused of start- with t men aboard and the ng a home for aged with Jack on, 35; Buhl, 37; Ray Herbert 6, and just Sunday added Ole Pals JESSE BUCY . . . DWIGHT WILLIAMS average baseball and basketball coaches. Bucy and the Blytheville coach ended up on the same semipro baseball team at Holcomb, Mo. "Dwight and I were two-thirds of the outfield," Jesse said. "That was the best team I ever played on, Including professional. Our pitchers were Mark Freeman and Dave Sisler." Jesse swung the conversation back to Pruett. Which is not difficult. "Pruett's made up his mind. He's.going to Mississippi State." Far as Jesse Bucy was concerned, that ended the matter. . Maybe the Arkansas State people will accept the coach's word as final, and ease up the pressure, but has anyone given a thought to all those basketball nuts over there in North Carolina? Che summer is long. Roebuck, 37. Jim Bunning is a lively 34. Looking at the standing: which show the Phillies in the thick of the National Leagui pennant race, Quinn is quiti happy with his aged pitchers. HIRE'S THE PITCH: 'COMl OUT AND By MURRAY CHASS Associated Press Sports Writer Now that National League pitchers have turned Donn Clendenon's power off, they've turned Roberto Clemenle's on. And it's proved a shocking experience for them. Billy McCool Was the latest victim of the Clemente explosion as the Pittsburgh star lashed a three-run .homer that gave the Pirates a 5-4 victory over Cincinnati Monday night. The homer was the ninth for the flashy right fielder this season, just one short of his total last year, and the runs batted in gave him 36 for the season, fifth best in the league and more than half as many as the 65 he had in 1965. * + * Why the sudden power surge for Clemente who has built three batting championships on bits that stay inside the park? "Clendenon isn't like he wa last year," the 31-year-old Puerto Rican explained after helping the Reds to their 14th loss in 18 games. "If he comes back j again, I'll start punching the ball again. But I've been taking a good cut and swinging hard." Clendenon was the Pirates' second leading slugger last year but has gotten off to a slow start with only four homers and 22 runs driven in. Clemente, meanwhile, is ^headed for his best slugging GIT IT' AL Batters Grumbling By DICK COUCH Associated Press Sports Writer Minnie Rojas' "come out and get it" pitch has. American League hitters biting off more then they can chew. The rookie California pitcher, Who has been accused of showing up Stu Miller as a speed- merchant, blanked Chicago for six innings Monday night as the Angels salvaged a doubleheader split by edging the White Sox 21. Rojas has started two games and won both since his call-up from the Angels' Seattle farm club last month while compiling a sharp 1.33 earned run average in seven appearances over-all. He also has alienated opposing hitters with his teasing delivery. "He's got three pitches — tlower and 'come out and get it,' " one frustrated slugger has said of the 27-year-old right- hander, whom the Angels purchased from a Mexican League club earlier in the year for the bargain price of $2,500. "How can he expect to pitch up here with junk like that," muttered another hitter recently after a losing battle with Rojas' change-up. The White Sox, who had won the rain-delayed first game 5-1, reached Bojsa for only four hits and Minnesota divided a twi- night twin bill with Kafsas City, dropping the opener 5-2 before rebounding in the second game 6-1. The Boston-Cleveland gam was rained out. Frank Malzone gave Rojas a 1-0 lead with a fifth-inning horn er, then singled in the ninth and Reds leading 4-2. McCool worked the count to 12 before Clemente, a right-handed batter, drove the ball into the upper right field stands. Elsewhere in the NL, San Francisco crushed Chicago 8-0, Houston trimmed os Angeles 96 in 11 innings, Philadelphia swept Atlanta 6-2 and 6-4 and New York defeated St. Louis 52 before bowing 4-1. Before Clemente's homer, the Reds had built their 4-2 lead on Vada Pinson's three-run homer in the fourth inning and his run- scoring single in the fifth. Gaylord Perry, making his first start in 17 days, allowed the Cubs only three hits in seven innings. He was supported by San Francisco's six-run third, three of the run coming on 01- lie Brown's double. * * + Joe Morgan tripled across two runs and scored on Sonny Jackson's single in the llth inning for Houston's triumph over Los Angeles. The Astros had exploded for six runs in the eighth inning, three on Felix Mantilla's lomer, and a 6-4 lead, but the Dodgers tied it on Tommy Davis' homer an Willie Davis' run-producing single. | Larry Jackson pitched a four- hitter in Philadelphia's opening- ;ame victory over Atlanta. Clay Dalrymple sparked the Phillies attack with a homer and a single, driving in three runs. Jack Phillies Brandt in the triggered the second game, and no runs until the seventh scored on Bobby Knoop's triple. inning. Then, after making J. C. Martin his sixth strikeout victim, Rojas gave up a single to Sox newcomer Jerry Adair, hit Floyd Robinson witb a pitch and walked Smoky Burgess, filling the bases. * Bob Lee then replaced Rojas and got out of the jam when left fielder Willie Smith grabbed John Romano's liner and doubled Adair at the plate with a rifle throw. Elsewhere, Frank Robinson's three-run homer and a two-run shot by Brooks Robinson led Baltimore past New York 14, Detroit nipped Washington 4-3 That run proved winner when the to be White the Sox scored in the last of the ninth. Jack Lama be stopped the Angels on five hits in the first game, running his record to 4-2, while Don Buford led the Chicago attack with a run-scoring single and three-run double. The victory ended a five-game losing string for the White Sox. Buford collected five hits in the doubleheader and Adair, traded to the Sox from Baltimore Sunday for reliever Eddie Fisher, had four. Baltimore's rampaging Robinsons powered the Orioles to their 13th victory in the last It lifting a homer in the third and tripling across the first run in a 'ive-run fifth. Rich Allen added a two-run double in the fifth. » * » Bob Taylor backed Bob lhaw's five-hit, New York Met lebut with a three-run homer in he sixth inning. Bill Murphy also homered for the Mets. St. Louis, won the nightcap, getting two singles and a triple rom Lou Brock, who also stole wo bases and scored twice. Three Cardinal pitchers scat- ered seven hits, including Ken Boyer's homer. iiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiininiiiiiitiuiniiiiiiiiiiiiHiiiiiiiiiiniiiiiiiiiiiii Major ir's iiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiuiiiHiniaiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiNiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiit MONDAY'S STARS By THE ASSOCIATED PRESS PITCHING-Jack Lamabe, Chicago, pitched a five-hitter as the White Sox defeated California 5-1 in the opener of a doubleheader.
