Karras not only got some more unfavorable publicity, but the Little Leagues lost $50 on the game. Receipts totaled only $550 while the Lions were guaranteed $400. * * * 7 OREGON STATE'S TERRY BAKER already was a "professional" when he signed his contract with the Rams Tuesday. But don't be alarmed. There win be_ no scandal over it. He had inked his first pro contract just 24 hours before to represent a group of Portland automobile dealers. .

Countess Adios, 10th leading money- winning pacer of aH-time, became the talk of the harness world recently when she was entered in a maiden trotting event -- a race for non-winners in that gait. Within seven days at Santa Anita, she had raced to three straight victories as a trotter. Why change gaits when she was the queen of the pacers with a fine mark of I:57*s for a mile? · Her owners and driver-trainer Del Miller were curious to see just what she could do as a trotter. Her best trotting time so far is 2J3*£ for a mile, but If she can lower that to 2,-00'i sfee rrOl replace Steamin Demon as the fastest dooble-gaitrd r.'cer in harness history . . . and a 2.-01}j clocking wiH rank her as the best "twitch-hitter" trer among the e^-ane fair sex. And there is evidence that Countess Adios just might be able to shade two minutes later this year during the faH meeting at Hotrywood Park. * * * HER CASE IS ONE OF THOSE -freak" developments THEY'RE ENGAGED! Bo Aims to Marry Mame By ROSS NEWMAN SAN JOSE--Bo Belinsky, who race said that "only the unadjusted ever get married," admitted Monday night that he is going to join the Est of the "unadjusted." Belinsky confirmed rumors that he wfll wed movie star Mamie Vaa Doren. "We have not set a definite date but you can say we are engaged," revealed the southpaw. "I wanted to make a nice official announcement," continued Bo, *irat the papers got a hold of it. I don't know much about this engagement business. Why, I never even went steady." The Belinsky-Van Doren relationship has largely been a telephonic one. He saw her regularly when she was appearing at the Palm Springs Chi Chi a month ago, but the club wect on the road and Miss Van Doren accepted a night club date in Vancouver. While in the cdd north, Mamie called Bo each night. She returned to Palm Springs last Friday and watched him pitch for the first time Sunday. In doing so she passed Dp an opportunity to make a film in Europe. Belinsky, fined over $250 when he and Deaa Chance reported two boors late to the park last Saturday, indicated that while financially distaught, "I guess FQ have to go out and get a ring." Ironically, Mamie and Bo were introduced last summer by band leader Ray Anthony, Miss Van Dorea's former husband. He arranged a bund date and Bo immediately was as impressed by Mamie's curves as she was by his delivery- Hold High Respect for Hawks By DON HARDW The Lakers, enjoying an opening-game lead over SL /xiis in the NBA'i Western Xvision playoff finals; hope o get a two-game jump on the tough Hawks tonight The scene win be the LA. jports Arena, the same a: iunday afternoon when thi Bakers won. 112-104.
