D-2-INDEPENDENT-PRESS-TELEGRAM Loan Buch II, Calll., Sunday, Anrll i, »« HANK HOLLINGWORTH Eivcutive Sporh Sfc". EJitu- Fans Not Fooled by Dodger Farce Even though llicy have reaped thousands of reams of publicity since spring training started, Dodger management and pitchers Sandy Koufax and Don Drysdale may have sown more ill-feeling than either side has realized. Fans have become disgusted wilh n i l aspecls of the Great Holdup, as evidenced by a sampling of the mail delivered here. (13y the way, all letters printed here today were received BEFORE our previous column which "suggested" thai Ihe Great Holdup might have been the biggest sports news-gathering of all-lime. A f u r t h e r mail barrage is anticipated w i t h i n the next few days because few sporls stories have captured the public's imagination in the manner of this Dodger spectacular.) Commented Charles Sendrey, Box 14G27, Long Beach: "1 wonder how many great financial wizards could boast of receiving million-dollar advertising for the cost of a box of cigars, as has done Mr. Walter O'Malley? Let's face it. Walter would be unable to sleep at night, knowing that his two magicians of the baseball world were striking out in the movies while attendance figures were reaching all-time lows. "ON THE OTHER HAND, WHY SHOULD HE WASTE SUCH A BEAUTIFUL OPPORTUNITY TO CAPITALIZE ON A PUBLICITY STUNT? "A great athlete just couldn't accept a desk job. especially with those thousand-dollar bills waved in his face. Although Sandy w i l l nol pot a three-year contract, he'll get almost what he wanted. That way, he'll receive a reasonable sum w h i l e saving face. "The real dynamic duo (Mr. and Mrs. Drysdale) will again take t h e i r respective places in Dodger Stadium. I doubt whether Mrs. D. would let Don turn down 100,000 bucks. She'd miss the game more than Don. So, as they say in the story hooks, 'they all lived happily ever afler'. "And one day, people will realize who is the greatest (outside of the prize ring, t h a t is) ... Waller O'Malley, BUSINESS GENIUS." THOMAS P. HEFTNER, 805 S. Crane St., Compton: 49ers Sweep Mats, Boost CCAA Lead Long Beach State boosted its CCAA baseball lead to two games Saturday with a marathon rioubleheader sweep over San Fernando Valley State on the Mats' diamond. i The unbeaten 49ers (6-0) won the opener 11-10 in 10 innings on Van White's double, then exploded for a 12-1 nightcap victory shortened to six innings because of darkness.

Cards Notch 6th Straight Victory The improving St. Louis Cardinals won their sixth exhibition game in a row Saturday, defeating the Boston Red Sox, 3-1, as Charlie Smith drove in two runs with a single and a triple. Southpaw Larry Jaster, bidding for a starting berth, scattered six hits in seven innings. The Red Sox got to him for their only run in the fourth on Jim Gosger's single and Carl Yastraemski's double.

"Who had to pay for (he ball parks in, say, Anaheim, Milwaukee, Atlanta, New York, San Francisco and Houston?

RAY SAAT.TIAN, 262 Roswell Ave.: "There is no question lhat Drysdale and Koufax are today what they are because of Ihe thousands of fans who turned oul each game lo support t h e m . W i t h o u t ihesc people, each of Ihe pitchers could he pitching 15 no-hitlers a year and compiling a 42-3 record in some vacant lot in New Mexico, and nobody would really know, or care. "In the judgment of many, both would be wise to consider Ihe moral obligation they have lo Ihe fans as well as their pocket books. Surely, the difference of 10 or 20 thousand dollars a year from a lotal salary of $100,000 can't mean as much lo them as their absence would mean to the thousands of fans and their club. "In essence, they would be b i t i n g the fans that fed them. And in the final analysis if (hey decided nol to play, it would appear n o t h i n g other t h a n a grave testimony to a couple of ultra-malerialistic oriented entertainers." lama drove in 4 runs.

AMONG the amazed was Wes Parker, who rated 'q good for Ihe first time. 1 K o u f a x agreed he was "throwing f u l l o u l , but the ball wasn't g e t t i n g there that fast. I'm happy, though, because my arm feels good, real good.' 1 Koufax said he would like to start in the second series of the regular season "if everything goes well. I'd like lo pitch against the Cubs.
