'FAINTED' Bear Finally Gets a Rest , LOS ANGELES (AP) - Alabama Football Coacb Paul (Bear) Bryant obtained today what he apparently needed most — rest — after his collapse on a coaching clinic speaker's lec- turn. The University of Alabama - head coach rested at View Park Community Hospital, where a spokesman reported he "has an exhaustion syndrome as a result . ef which he fainted." • Bryant had just begun a . speech at the annual Pepperdine College coaching clinic, when he clutched his chest and cried: "I don't know what it is — is there a doctor in tbe house." Then he fell to the floor. Later a hospital spokesman said the coach "seems to be 'feeling pretty well and is alert and talking." His wife visited his bedside. * * * "He doesn't look like or talk like it's something real serious," the 52-year-old coach's 'wife said. "He talks clearly and his color is good." Bryant's Alabama squads have a 69-12-6 record and he led the Crimson Tide to national football titles in 1962, 1964 and 1965. He was named Coach of tbe Year in 1963. Overall, his teams are 160-5244. Bryant started slowly with Alabama after he took over in 1958. But after a first-season mark of 5-4-1, the Crimson Tide hasn't lost more than two games a season — and that includes the bowl games.

Game at Base Pepsi-Cola of Blytheville has a game at Blylheville Air Force Base tonight, first pitch at 8:30. This is the game that was abruptly postponed last week. The Pepsi men, who recently won the first half of the Kennett Softball League schedule, plan to pitch Bill Sharp against Jim Snow, an All-SAC hurler. There is no charge. Public is invited. * * * Pepsi has a 7:30 game Mrs. John Germain was almost as excited as her daughter Dot who called late yesterday from Columbus. Mrs. Germain takes ;he normal pride in a daughter's accomplishments but the intercollegiate golf show is the one she captured when she attended Northwestern University. Here's another oddity. When Mrs. Germain won the collegiate crown (she was Phyllis Otto then), she defeated her sister-in-law in the finals. Her sister-in-law's name? Dot Germain. When young Dot called from Columbus yesterday, her mother kidded her and asked if the course were "easy." "Well, no, it's not too easy," she replied. • She said it's a long course. Dot \yould've done even better but she bogeyed two of the last three holes. "I guess she got to wondering what she was doing down that low," her mother said. "It can get to you. I know." The girl was co-medalist at 75 on a par 74 course. Cutoff for the championship flight was 82. MAJOR LEAGUE STANDINGS NATIONAL LEAGUE W. L. Pet.

The guy was Don Drysdale of the Los Angeles Dodgers, who admitted after his fifth straight loss — a 4-2 defeat by the Astros — that every loss was getting him deeper in trouble. "When they get you down, whether you're a pitcher or a hitter, they try to bury you," Drysdale said as he rested on a training table with an icepack on his arm. "But it's just one of those things. You just try to battle out of it. They don't give you anything." They haven't given Drysdal anything since May 30 when he won his last game. Since then he has been pounded for 22 runs in 37 innings — a 5.35 earned run average — while his record for the season has plummeted to 4-9. Meanwhile, at Atlanta, a fan in the center field seats pulled out his trumpet during batting practice and serenaded the Braves, who had lost three straight games, with his rendition of Taps. They may have him do it every night. The Braves got two homers from Gene Oliver and one from Joe Torre and belted Philadelphia 7-5. iiiiiiuniiiiiiiiiiiiiiiniiiiiiinniniiiniiiiiMiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiuiii Fights jiiiiiiiiiiiniiniiiiiiiiiiiHiiiiiiniiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiin 1 By THE ASSOCIATED PRESS PITTSBURGH— Carlos Ortiz, 135, New York, stopped Johnny Bizzarro, 133 3 /4, Erie, Pa., 12, Ortiz defended world lightweight championship.

Oliver hit his first homer during a three-run fourth inning rally and Torre collected three runs batted in with a homer in the second inning and a single in ,the fifth. But the Cardinals battled back to tie it in the seventh on a three-run double by Bill White. The Braves went back to work in their half and put it away when Felipe Alou beat out an infield hit and Oliver rapped his second homer. » < * The Cardinals started out in the first against the Mets, scoring three runs with the aid of an error by second baseman Ron Hunt and the first of two stolen bases by Lou Brock. Curt Flood's single, a sacrifice bly by Tim McCarver and Mike Shannon's infield hit drove in the runs. his steal of by shortstop Eddie Bressoud and a wild pitch by Dick Selma gave the Cardinals their final run in the seventh. Brock's single, second, an error thought I pitched well then. But I seem to have gotten a lot of bad breaks." His bad break Monday night came after Tom Satriano and Paul Schaal singled with one out in the seventh. Pinch hitter Willie Smith then lofted a long fly to center field, but Oliva dropped it, and two runs scored for a 3-3 tie. Smith wound up at second and quickly scored the decisive run on Ed Kirkpatrick's single. In other AL games Washington defeated Cleveland 4-2 and Chicago topped Kansas City 3-1.

The California Angels tamed Phil Rizzuto Soys OK NEW YORK (AP)-The New York Yankees announced today acceptances of invitations for their annual Oldtimer's Day from former Yankee infielder Phil Rizzuto and Pete Coscarart, an infielder with the old Brooklyn Dodgers.

Norm Siebern added a California homer in the eighth. Two errors by Cleveland shortstop ChicO Salmon helped Washington to two unearned runs in the second inning. Salmon dropped Dick Nen's pop up and missed the throw on a force play as Doug Camilli scored. Camilli also homered for th» Senators in the sixth. Tommie Agee led Chicago past Kansas City, collecting three hits. He tripled home a run in the fifth inning, then doubled and scored in the eighth. Phil Roof homered for the Athletics.

Jim Wynn led off with a single and raced to second when Willie Davis hobbled the hit. Rusty Staub, who drove in the first Houston run, scored Wynn with a double. Ron Perranoski came on in Chuck relief of Drysdale and Harrison produced the Ernie Rests Doug Back On the Bag HOUSTON (AP) - Heavyweight Ernie Terrell took his second day off today but Doug Jones, who meets the World Boxing Association champion in the title fight here June 28, went back for more workouts. Both Terrell and Jones stayed away from the ring Monday after brisk training over the weekend. Terrell, who resumes sparring Wednesday, made two signing appearances at a local ball room Monday night and planned to re-visit Veterans Hospital today. Terrell was allowed the extra time off after trainer Sam Solo- third time this season as they defeated Minnesota 5-3 Monday night. Grant was not happy with the decision that dropped his record to 5-9, a far cry from his 21-7 record last year that helped put the Twins into the World Series and himself on the stage with a musical act called Mudcat and the Kittens. "I think I've pitched better this year than last, and I think my earned run average proves it," Grant said. "But you saw what happened—it's happened to me a lot this year." What happened was that Tony Oliva dropped a fly ball with two on in the seventh inning, giving the Angels two unearned runs. * * + Grant is correct as far as his ERA is concerned. His present mark of 3.26 is lower than his final ERA of 3.30 in 1965 and the 3.68 he had at this time last year when he also had a 6-2 record. After pitching the Twins to the American League pennant and winning two games in the Series, Grant toured the country and appeared on television with the Kittens. When contract signing time came, he also held out for ?50,ODO. He finally agreed to a salary of slightly more than $35,000 but not until March 15, which was well into spring training. However, the 30-year-old right-han- der doesn't think the holdout has hurt him.
