The Indians, however, have An Rock)' continued to roll, driving in all of the Indians' runs with a solo homer in the fourth inning, a three-run job in the seventh and a run-producing single in the ninth. Colavito also was robbed of another homer when Jim Gosger reached high above the left field fence to haul in his long been unable to give Colavito , d r [ ve j n the second inning, much assistance and have split The loss left the third-place the four games, bowing to Kan-1 Indians three gamees behind the sas City and the A's 15-hit at- American League-leading Balti- tack, 7-5, while their slugging outfielder put on his latest one- man show. Colavito began flexing his muscles in Fenway Park when he slammed three homers in Wednesday's doubleheader He added one more against the Red more Orioles, who lost to California 5-4 in 14 innings. Second- place Detroit closed to within ' 1V4 of the top with a split, beating Minnesota 2-1 and losing 9-2.

By MURRAY CHASS Associated Press Sports Writer Sammy Ellis, who pitched himself back into his old job two weeks ago, apparently is losing :t again. Ellis, an ace reliever two years ago who became a 22- >ame winner as a starter lasl season, won his second straight ;ame Friday night as the Cincinnati Reds annihiliated San Francisco 12-1 for their seventh straight victory. The winning streak constitutes half of the victory toal iis season for Ellis, who has ost 11 games, and should help •ceep him out of the bullpen — a jlace he doesn't mind having visited but one he doesn't want to stay in. As a relief pitcher in 1964, El- js compiled a 10-3 record. Reds Manager Don Heffner returnee him to that job two weeks ago in hopes that the 25-year-old right bander would start pitching wel again. * * * But Ellis didn't like the idea He got too much enjoyment ou of his release from the bullpen las year. "I liked he job. I was iner esting," Elis said of his relie role. "But I think it will de crease my longevity. You ap pear 60 or 70 imes a year am get ready 120 times. I might bi all through in three or fou: years. "I want to be around 10 or 1 years, not three or four am wind up carrying a lunch pail, don't want any part of it." Ellis appeared in two game as a reliever, then returned tc the starting rotation. His Iw straight victories have come ir the winning streak that ha vauled the Reds into a sixth place tie in the Nations League, only one game unde .500. "I think Ellis has found him self and is on his way," Heffen er said. * + + Elsewhere in the NL Los An geles blanked Atlanta 4-0, Pitts burgh toppled Philadelphia 3-1 Houston defeated St. Louis 4- and New York stopped Chicago 4-2. Ellis slopped the first-place Giants on six hits, shutting them out until the eighth When Doi Mason homered. John Edward drove in four runs with a pair o singles while Deron Johnson knocked in three and Tommy Harper two. Claude Osteen held Atlanta to five hits in eight innings and triggered Los Angeles' four-run eighth with a single. Osteen scored the first run, and John Roseboro singled home the last two. Phil Regan pitched the last inning for the Dodgers. * + * Bob Veale outdueled Philadelphia's Jim Bunning, allowing the Philies ony five hits. He was backed by Pittsburgh homers by Roberto Clemente, Jesse Gonder and Willie Stargell. Houston's Dave Nicholson [drove in one run with a triple 'and scored two others against St Louis. Larry Oieker scattered nine hits in his final start hefore reporting for Army reserve duty. Cleon Jones broke a 2-2 tie for New York with a seventh-inning homer, then added a run-scoring single in the ninth.

Plenty of money, nice home, nice furnishings, another salary raise in sight; we've never had it so good. Why should our son manage a newspaper route? Most any educator or businessman win teH you why in three simple words: it builds character. Oftentimes the youngster who grows up in comfortable circumstances and who gets his weekly "handout" from dad never realizes the value of money or the efforts required to make it and manage it, until he's on bis own. By then attitudes and habits are difficult to reverse. But the newspaperboy quickly learns valuable lessons that stick 'While making money on a newspaper route is important, the experience of getting* the-job-done-no-matter-what is more important When through route management, responsibility and self-confidence are acquired at this early age, a newspaperboy has an advantage over other youngsters that so amount of money can buy.
