The San Francisco Gianls oppose the Cubs here Monday and Tuesday--and both games are close to sellouts already--with the Angels arriving on the scene Wednesday and Thursday. Parking is horrible enough in the Blair Field area ordinarily, but with these weekday games on the horizon, the place may be a disaster area for the four days mentioned. Main reason for the weekday problem Is (he fact that Wilson High School, directly across the street from Blair Field, will have classes in session. That means both stu- one of 'em. dents and faculty will be taking up parking spaces which "i want can be utilized on the weekend games (against Cleveland). Weekend parking for Blair Field games is no picnic, but it will seem like a family outing compared to what we foresee for the weekday affairs. Witness the weekend INTRA-SQUAD GAMES the Cubs played before they started their exhibition -season. People found it almost impossible to park then . . . for routine INTRA-SOUAD AFFAIRS! · * * * ' THE CITY MANAGER'S office is alerted to the affair, hut the present solution seems inadequate. In working overtime, city manager John Mansell came up with this comment: "In addition to the parking In immediate vicinity of Blair Field, provision has been made for overflow parking on both, sides of Marine Stadium and parking lots at Colorado Lagoon. Free;.bus shuttle service at JO-minute intervals to ind from these areas. Also, overflow parking in Park Ave. softbali field across the street from Blair Field. An attached map shows the parking areas." The trouble is that Marino Stadium and Colorado Lagoon are quite a.distance from Blair Field-and out-of- lowners (of which you may be sure there will be many) will not be alerted to t h i s , "convenience." Not to men- t i o n , naturally, Ihe Long Beach people who will attempt lo find a parking space considerably closer t h a n either Ihe Lagoon or Marine S t a d i u m . * * * THE CITY COUNCIL and school officials should gel together and either order (or make an appeal to) the Wilson students and faculty lo park WEST of Ximeno Ave. when Ihe major leaguers are at Blair Field. A suggestion has been made lo post motor officers at intersections of Seventh St. and Park Ave., 10th St. and Park Ave., Anaheim SI. and Park Ave., and Federa- lion Dr. and Seventh St. This would discourage Ihe Wilson people f r o m parking on the cast side of the campus. A n o t h e r suggestion has been made that Ihe students form car pools. At least this "might" take a few cars off Ihe streets. Long Beach molor officers also could reroute the golfing brigade lo park near Anaheim Street's entrance lo Recreation Park. This would keep some additional cars out of Blair Field's parking lol and off Federation Dr. THE M A I N THING IS TO BLOCK .WILSON HIGH P A R K I N G F.AST OF XIMENO! * * * SHUTTLE BUS SERVICE seems only to work when you a t t e n d oilhcr Santa A n i l a or Hollywood Park. The fans can park anywhere in the lot of either place and expect a shuttle bus to arrive w i t h i n minutes. Hut, the shuttle bus concentrates just or, one lot. NOT A STADIUM NOR LAGOON which many people will have difficulty ever finding. * * * ANOTHER MAJOR PROBLEM foreseen with shuttle bus service is that if people get turned around (and the Los Angeles-Orange County people unfamiliar with Blair Field will be the ones mosl affected), they're apt to march on City Hall if they miss transportation lo Marine Stadium. Additionally, a n u m b e r of people like lo hang around any hall park to gel autographs, glimpses of the players, and maybe a chance lo talk w i l h them. If the bus service stops r u n n i n g (and I've seen this happen hcfore in o t h e r places), some people will he mighty hot under Ihe collar trying lo find their way back In the Colorado Lagnnn and M a r i n e Stadium areas. Michigan coach Dave Strack blows his stack d u r i n g loss to Kentucky in i\CAA : Regionals. Strack's assistant takes up charge ill far right. New 49er Track Club Jumper Predicts He'll Defeat Brumel By JOHN DIXON Some people get high just for the fun of it. Dick Ross is to be the best every time," Ross related to :he I, P-T at the Southern C a l i f o r n i a Track Writers munchin - luncheon meeting Monday. "I've high jumped 7-3 in practice, and my goal is to win every meet. I'll do ?··) this year. Before I'm through? Well, I'm going to be the best in the world, to hold the world record; Valeriy Brume is the best (7-5%) now, but I plan to beat him. "My peak is 7-1, in 1964 but I'm going up. There's logic in my goal. Now I'vi got the best practice facilities I've ever had." Ross has joined Tom Jen nings' 49er Track Club. There fore he has no practice facil ties in Long Beach--unless he has an unusual facility for :Iimbing fences--but as one of the great jumpers in the world he's welcome anywhere Ise. "I'll practice at L.A. State," *oss said. "I understand that :'m a teammate of John Ram- x's, but I prefer to practice alone." Well, that's fine. Rambo has his own well thought out secret practice theories--rest, relax, sleep. Ross is 6-4%, 25 years old, a veteran of the track and field factory at Southern U. * * * + . HOW GOOD is the best? UCLA's track coach, Jim Bush, an entrepreneur of the fast and the strong, says it's an utterly easy 3:59.0 mile. "Bob Day ran 3:59.0 last weekend, and it was the easiest sub-4-minute mile I've ever seen.

In Monday's opener, Alex Olmedo scored his second ictory of the series, playing ell all the way to best Aussie ew Houd, 11-9. Ken Rosewall caught Earl Buchholz on one of the young imerican's colder nights and reezed to a 10-3 triumph. G o n z a l e s and Bucholz whipped Rosewall and Hoad, 0-7, in the night's final match.
