Robbie Club Adds New Member: Boog Mythevffle (Ark.) Courier Nm - Monday, June 17,19M - Page Ninr By MIKE RATHET Associated Press Sports Writer His name isn't Robinson, but Boog Powell is hitting like one. Powell, who hasn't been getting the same recognition accorded Frank and Brooks Robinson in Baltimore's run for the American League pennant, again emphasized his credentials Sunday by driving in four runs with three hits in a 12-7 blasting of the California Angels. And the way he's been going recently, the 24-year-old slugging first baseman may be ready to claim an equal share with the Robinsons in the Orioles' power structure. At this time last month, Powell was hiting a woeful .185. Since then he has hit at a .402 run shot in the Yankees' first- game victory. Fred Talbot, tagged for a homer by Ken Berry, scattered eight hits for the triumph. Tresh singled home the only run Fritz Peterson needed in the nightcap after Ron White beat out a hit and Bobby Richardson walked in the third inning. Peterson checked the White Sox on six hits. The A's won the opener on homers by Dick Green, Roger Repoz and Bert Campaneris. The nightcap was deadlocekd until the sixth when the Indians erupted for seven runs, including homers by Rocky Colavito — his seventh in five days — and Leon Wagner. Chico Salmon also homered for Cleveland. The Red Sox won the opener clip while hammering nine horn- as Joe Foy hit a grand-slam ers and 30 runs batted in. The' homer and Don Demeter and Rico Petrocelli contributed solo shots. The Senators got even in the nightcap with Fred Valentine and Ken Harrelson hitting homers while Jim Hannan posted his first victory. month-long burst has lifted his totals to where they bear favorable comparison with the more publicized Robinsons.

In other NL games, Los An- edged Atlanta 2-1, Pittsburgh trimmed Philadelphia 2-0, Houston topped St. Louis 6-3 1 11 innings and Chicago whipped New York 7-0 before losing 8-2. While Perry stymied the Reds, the Giants exploded with five home runs — two by Tom Haller and one each by Jim Davenport, Don Landrum and Jim Hart. Jim Maloney suffered his third defeat. Hee has won nine. Koufax became the winning- est pitcher in the majors, scattering seven hits and striking out 11. The Braves tied the game 1-1 in the fifth on Hank Aaron's run-scoring single, but the Dodgers pulled it out in the ninth on Denis Menke's two- base error and Willie Davis' two-base hit. * * + Woody Fryman shut out Philadelphia on three Roberto Clemente hits and while Willie Stargell, who walked, scored the Pirate runs. Jose Pagan singled home Clemente in inning, and Bonn the fourth brought Stargell home in the eighth with a triple. Jim Wynn's three-run homer off Joe Hoerner in toe llth inning boosted Houston past St. Louis. The Astros, blanked on five hits by Al Jackson through eight innings, erupted for three runs and a 3-3 tie in the ninth. Wynn drove in thee tying run with a sacrifice fly. Curt Simmons pitched a five- hitter for the Cubs in the opener of the doubleheader and was supported by Ernie Banks, who drove in three runs with a single and a sacrifice fly.

The Orioles, who wound Los Angeles' Sandy Koufax Sunday, pitching a two-hitter as the National League-leading San Francisco Giants stoppeed Cincinnati's eight-game streak 104. The victory was winning the 10th Perry, giving him a .909 percentage, the best among the league's top U P'pitchers. Marichal, at 13-2, has with 20 hits, led 3-0 and 4-3 but a n .867 mark while Koufax, who posted his 14th triumph against two defeats Sunday, is at .875. In rambling toward the best season of his five-year major league career, Perry has picked up one of Marichal's. habits. Instead of plodding slowly to the mound each inning as virtually all pitchers do, Marichal runs. Perry did it Sunday, except for the last couple of innings, despite 94-degree weather and a weak left ankle. "I want to work extra hard to stay in rotation," Perry explained. "I want to try and impress Herman Franks." Perry undoubtedly has im- had to come from behind a 7-5 deficit in the eighth inning. Frank Robinson's single and an error by Jose Cardenal on the hit let Luis Aparicio score the tying run. Brooks Robinson then singled in the tie-breaker and Powell singled home another run. The Twins rapped 14 hits in the opener with Harmon Killebrew slaming a double and two singles. A five-run fifth inning in which Killebrew doubled home a run and scored another put it away. In the nightcap, the Twins again packed five runs into one inning, this time the third, and pressed Manager Franks — and Jim Perry took it from there | all of the other managers in the league.

Mike Ford will return $280,000 to syndicate members who purchased shares in the Kentucky Derby and Preakness winner. Those were the rapid-fire developments after a veterinarian examined X rays of Kauai King's left front ankle Sunday and said he couldn't guarantee the 3-year-old colt would ever return to top form. Kauai King, who .finished fourth in the Belmont Stakes after winning the first two portions of the Triple Crown, pulled up lame last Saturday after a fifth-place finish in the Arlington Classic. After being advised of Kauai King's long and possibly uncertain recovery period, Ford announced that the colt would be retired to stud at Alfred Vanderbilt's Sagamore Farm just outside Baltimore. Ford, Kauai King's original sole owner, also reduced from $70,000 to $60,000 the value of each of the 36 shares in the syndicate which was organized after the Belmont. Ford, who remained the largest stockholder in the syndicate by retaining title to eight shares, said he slashed the price 'hot as an inducement to stay in the syndicate, but as a show of good faith." papers in a telephone interview, 'will have the opportunity of getting out completely or taking the drop in price." Jerbld Hoffberger, who organized what will now be a $2,160,000 syndicate, said he had talked with as many syndicate members as he could reach, and nobody has said he's not going to buy in." Ford announced his decision after receiving a report from Dr. Raymond Murphy of Laurel, Md.' After examining wet X rays, Ford said, Murphy was '99 per cent sure no bones are fractured. However, suspensories of he said the leg pulled pretty bad and much worse than he originally believed." "Murphy ttiso believes that Kauai King would need from six to eight months in complete retirement to be repaired through blistering," Ford told Boniface, 'and then it would take about 120 days more to get him back to the races and there would be the chance of his being beaten by an Inferior horse. "Rather than do that, I just made the decision to retire him." US Team Set For Russians By MURRAY ROSE Associated Press Sports Writer NEW YORK (AP) , - "We have a real good team — a team Kiat can beat the Russians — but I hope no one gets over optimistic." Stan Wright of Texas Southern, tbe first Negro coach to head a U.S. men's track and field team in major international competition, made the comment after the National AAU Outdoor Championships Saturday and Sunday at. Downing Stadium. The first .two men .in .each event automatically made the team bul o&ers will be added to the squad today to strengthen it for the meets with Poland at Berkeley, Calif., July 16-17 and Russia at Los Angeles July 2324. Gerry Lindgren, the NCAA three-mile and six-mile champion, who was forced out of the weekend meet by acute bronchitis, and Tommie Smith, the injured sprint sensation from San Jose State, will be added to the squad. Ofiier * * distance * runners also will b* added so that Uncle Sam's team will be able to send in separate and fresh 5,000-and 10,000-meter running combinations against the Poles and Russians. The emphasis will be on beating the Russians and avenging last year's stunning 118-112 point loss at Kiev, Russia. It was the first time in seven meetings the Soviet men had beaten the Yanks in a dual meet. "The most important thing was getting a place on the team and a chance at the Russians," said 19-year-old Jim Ryun, the star of the meet with his 3.58.6 winning mile. "The meet with the Russians is the second most important meet. The Olympics comes first." Ryun, who has just finished his freshman year at the University of Kansas, unreeled a spectacular 52.6 final quarter- mile after a slow 3:06 three- quarters, to provide New York with its first outdoor sub-four minute mile. "* + * The 6-foot-2, 160-pound youngster spurted like a sprinter in the final 200 yards to whip veteran Olympian Dyrol Burleson by eight yards with Jim Grelle, another Olympian, slightly behind. Burleson was timed in four minutes flat and Grele in 4:00.6. Only three meet records were broken and three tied in fiie two-day championships but many of tbe races became tactical battles with the emphasis on finishing one-two instead of records.

It could be called "animalnapping." In the first place, persons rearing wild animals at their home are required to have pel permits from the G&FC. These permits cost $2.50 for each animal and are valid for the life of Sie animal. Permits will nol be issued for bobcats, wolves, coyotes or bear. After a permit has been purchased often problems begin to develop, especially with deer The once cuddly fawn becomes hard - headed and no longer shy It begins to chase kids and eal up the garden. Sometimes, for no reason at all, it decides to polish its antlers on somebody's backside and becomes a honery cuss and can become a killer. Most wild animals are difficult to raise in captivity, and — short — it's best not to be an animalnapper. record breakers were Davenport, Cleveland Homer Sinks Travelers CARACAS, Venezuela, - Peaidt Gomez, 126'i, Venezuela, Each member of the syndi-i stopped Hiroshi •ete, he Md ifflaf **tor Binjltttt, Jigiu, I, Kobayashi, AUSTIN, Tex.

With the repeal of the predator law, hunters have asked the following general questions. Q — Do I need a license to tiunt predators? A — A license is needed, according to the regulations, to bunt any wild birds or animals, predators included. Q — Can I hunt predators at night? A — Predators can be hunted only from sunrise to sunset. They can be killed at night only during the fur - bearing season, and hunters must be accompanied by a dog. Q - What about (fee "buckshot law?" A — The buckshot law, which made it illegal "to use or have n possession in game cover, juckshot or rifled slugs except during open gun season on deer and turkey" is no longer in ef- Mt. Q — Can I collect a bounty on a predator I killed? A — The G&FC does not pay bounties for predators. Aubrey Fowler, chief of the Enforcement Division, adds that poaching fines had been made two or three times more costly since the repeal of the predator law. Shotguns in the hands of hunters have caused more casualties in the field than have rifles, reports the National Rifle Association. During Sie 1961-64 period 4,182 sportsmen were involved in accidental shotgun shootings, as compared to 2,740 by rifle. The reports indicates that hunters shooting at sounds and movement was the leading cause of gun casualties, victim out of the shooter's sight. The second most common cause of casualty, during the four • year span, occured as the victim was covered by shooters swinging on game. Rabbit hunters had the greatest number of gun mishaps, with 1,729 reported during 1961 through 1964, while deer hunters ranked second with 1,450 shooting accidents during the same period. Most accidental shoot- ings took place between 2 p.m. and 4 p.m. Outdoor enthusiasts should be more wary of. bees than snakes, since more persons' die from bee stings than do victims of snakebite. In fact, most snakes seen outdoors are harmless, and hunters and fishermen can eliminate the slight danger of snake bite by following a few simple rules. The best advice is to try to av;oid snakes, which usually strike a person only when cornered or when surprised. Watch where you walk and wear boots or leggings is wssibla Trouser legs should be worn outside the boots to help deflect the fangs of a striking snake Don't step over logs, step on top, then down if no snake is seen. Avoid putting your hands under crevices or rocks. Snakes are often found under boats turned bottom side up, so watch where you place your hands when turning the boat over. According to one nationally • known authority, "snake hysteria" is often more dangerous than the snakes. In the U. S. some 2,300 persons suffer snakebites each year, but less than one per cent of theni prove fatal Lightening and bee stings cause more deaths than do snakebites.
