DAILY TRIBUNE SATURDAY^ OCTOBER 3, 1964 /.CENTS PER COPY — 35 CENTS PER WEEK LDA SPAWNS Yankees Need One; Cardinals Keep Lead As Phillies Top Reds By GEORGE C. LANGFORT UP I Sports Writer 'Perplexed and strained, Acting Cincinnati Manager Dick Sisler today summed up the most startling major league pennant -race in history: "I'll tell you this, I'm gonna pack up my suitcase on Sunday and bring it to the ball park because I won't know whether I'm. going to San Francisco, St. Louis or Philadelphia." There is still a possibility of a four-way tie in the National League with just two days remaining. The major leagues never have had a three-way dead heat, much less a four- team deadlock. But that improbable conclusion was still a reality today after the 'most improbable, riotous night yet in the frantic final week. Break Losing Streak -^The lOth-plaee New York Mets broke an eight game losing streak and defeated the first - place St. Louis Cardinals 1-0. —The Philadelphia Phillies pulled off their third triple pla> of the season, rallied for.four runs in the eighth, inning and defeated the Cincinnati Reds 43 to break thier disastrous 10- game losing streak and prevent the Reds from regaining first .place. —The San Francisco Giants, in fourth place, moved to within two games of firse by blanking the Chicago Cubs 0-9. The Giants' chances of tying really aren't so slim the way the race has been going. They must defeat the Cubs in the final'two games, St. Louis.biust lose two and Cincinnati one to produce the fantastic four - way tie: And despite the natural dramatics, a dash of extra spice was added at St. Louis where an umpire got in theway of a ground ball and at Cincinnati where both benches emptied over an- alleged beanball incident. Made A Threat The umpire boo boo came in the eighth inning when the Cardinals made their only threat against the Mets' little lefty, Al Jackson, who allowed five hits. The Cards loaded the bases after two .were out on singles by pinchhitter EdSpiezio, Curt iFlood and a grounder by Lou Brock, which struck umpire Ed Vargo, who was racing to get out of the way. It was ruled a single and Dal Maxvil, running for Spiezio, scored from third with what appeared to be the tying run. •But under the rules, the ball had to go beyond the infield to permit the runner to score and since it did not the Cards were denied the run. However, 1 Brock's grounder was headed directly for Met shortstop Roy McMillan when it hit Vargo. Jackson then retired Dick Groat on a fly to right and went on to his third shutout and 12th victory against 18 losses. Former Cardinal George Altman scored the winning run for New York in the third inning on a single by Ed Kranepool after Altman had singled and stolen second off loser Bob Gibson. Hit By Pitch Sisler said the turning point in the Reds' loss, which kept them a half game behind the - Cardinals and one game ahead of the Phils, came in the seventh when Leon Cardenas'was hit by a -pitch from Chris Short. . Both benches emptied onto the field when Cardenas started ; toward the Philadelphia left hander. Order was quickly restored, but the incident woke up the Phillies. In the next inning Richie Allen tripled home two runs and Alex Johnson drove in •'the decisive tally with a single. . . Cincinnati starter Jim O'Toole had an easy three-hitter until Frank Thomas, a pinchhitter, started the uprising with a one out single. Starts Triple Play Alex Johnson started the (Continued from p$g» 6) •By GEORGE C. LANGFORD UP I Sports Writer Yogi Berra had a crumb, for all the Yankees haters today. "My first year managing has been a rough one," the impish New York. bossman sighed after the Yankees clinched a tie for 1 their 22nd pennant in the last 28 years. And it has been rough for the Yanks. In fact, thisjis the tisht- est pennant race the powerful Yankees "have-been forced into in 15 years. Not shice 1949, when the Yankees beat Boston to win the American League flag on the final day of the season, have the Bronx Bombers been so extended to meet their annual World Series Commitment. Whitey Ford, who doubles as pitching coach, hurled a four hitter and rode a five-run third inning to a 5-2 victory over the Cleveland Indians Friday night to seal at least a tie for their fifth straight AL flag. 'Orioles Eliminated. The New York victory finally eliminated the Baltimore Orioles, who routed the Detroit Tigers anyway 10-4 with the' aid of Brooks Robinson's three-run homer. The Stubborn Chicago White Sox, however, clung to their fleeting" hopes for a tie by squeaking by the Kansas City Athletics twice 3-2 and. 5-4. It left Manager Al Lopez' crew two games behind the leaders with two games to play. Ford did not allow a hit after giving up single runs in the first two innings and tamed the Indians so much they couldn't get a ball cut -of the infield after the second. Ford fannad e i e h t ani walked only one in registering his 17th victory against six losses. A two-run double by Elston Howard and a three-run homer by Tom T^esh off Cleveland loser Jack Kralick (12-7) accounted for the Yankee runs in the third.

Johnson, Goldwater Home State Choices By PRESTON MCGRAW United Press International Lyndon Johnson and Barry Goldwater are' fighting in their own backyard in the Southwest. At this stage, it looks like the President will pick up the marbles. The only area where Sen. Goldwater has a good chance is in his own state of Arizona. Texans will go for their fellqw Texan in the .White House. Football .rivalry asfide, Oklahoma will settle for--the Texan: So will-New .Mexico. But there'will be precious little coat-tail riding. The Senate, gubernatorial and congressional candidates are'. pretty much on their own in a region j where Democrats traditionally squabble among themselves and the Republicans depend more'. on personalities than on solid party support: .. Going from west to east, it shapes up like this with the election six weeks off: . Arizona: Democrats and Republicans both predict victory for their presidential candidate. Traditionally, Arizona is Democratic by a 3-2 margin. But in the past few years the odds have changed. Republicans have taken recent national elections in the state. ' Goldwater men fill the Republican ticket. Richard Kleindienst, Goldwater's field operations director before the national GOP. convention, is bidding for. the governorship against Democrat Sam Goddard. ' And Goddard lost to Paul Fannin, HAPPY UTTLE OKAPI—A happy little okapl Is shown with its mammy at age 1 day but its pappy didn't make the scene . for this Brookfield Zoo photo In Chicago.

Kleindienst may have the edge. • Fannin is running with Goldwater's blessing for Goldwater's vacated Senate seat. His opponent is Roy Elson, who was Democratic Sen. Carl Hayden's aide. Rep. John Rhodes, an ardent Goldwater man, seeks his seventh term in the 1st Congres-. sional District which includes Phoenix. John Ahearn, a popu-. lar attorney. and double, ampuv tee war veteran opposes in his first bid for public office. By and large, the Republican office, seekers should be a help to Goldwater on the state election totals. ;.' New Mexico: The land of enchantment is enchanted by Johnson. He has the decided edge. There is little or no civil rights or "backlash" issue here in this racially mixed state. Chances look good for a Democratic sweep. J • Hottest race is for the Senate between • Rep. Joseph | M. Montoya, a Democrat, against Edwin Mechem, the incumbent who stepped down as Republican governor to have himself appointed to| the seat, of the late Democrat Dennis Chavez. Mechem is the strongest man tke Republicans have had in the state. But he's up against a tough man, who seems to have the edge as of now. Texas: Goldwater will get a lot of popular votes. He won't pick up the 25 marbles known as Texas' electoral votes. Civil rights is an issue, particularly in" east Texas. But it's still Johnson. This is his bailiwick and he proved it by edging the state to John Kennedy in 1960. John Connally, wounded in the ..assassination of President Kennedy,» will have no problems getting re-elected. Connal j ly who is a moderate-conservative, quarrels with the liberal Democrats. But they all are behind Johnson. Liberal Sen. Ralph Yarborough is having an old-fashioned donnybrook with Republican George Bush for the Senate. Bush is the son of former Sen. Presciott Bush of Connecticut but has been in Texas long enough to wear the proud title, "Texan." Nevertheless it looks like Yarborough, even though the conservative Democrats don't like him. Yarborough, handicapped by a past association, however innocent, with Billie Sol Estes, is running scared. Therefore, he 's running hard. Oklahoma: Also running is Bud Wilkinson who used to field the best running backs in collegiate football as coach at OU. He's the Republican Senate candidate now and he's up against able vote-getter Fred Harris, a state senator. Most knowledgeable Oklahomans call it a goal- line.stand; a toss-up. The issues in Oklahoma are clouded by„ a major reapportionment problem. Oklahoma has a Republican governor for the first time In Henry BeU- mon and he's fighting for the other GOP candidate! since the governor's chair is not v up for grabs. But on the top level,, give it to Johnson. The Oklaho-, ma newspaper polls doi i NATURE NOTES by GEORGE CLINE said search planes and ships had found no survivors and no wreckage.

Grit like to eat the berries and have even made pies of them, but I never liked their taste well enough to eat any. They are said to be poisonous to some people. The roots of poke are perennial, living for many years, in the ground, although the plant. ton > 51 . °J Hoopeston, III.,,$19.75; above ground dies off each year and falls down. Sometimes the roots get very large. They, are brown colored, very brittle, very poisonous, and should never be eaten. However, no part of an adult poke plant is apt to be eaten by an adult person, for the reason that it has an unpleasant odor. It is said that the Indians knew how to' cook the large roots in such a way as to leach out the poisonous substances and make a palatable food of them. The young shoots of poke were commonly used as food in early days, being plucked and prepared in much the same way that asparagus is now. They are still so »used in the Southern states, where a mess of "poke greens" is considered to be a great delicacy. But great care should be taken in getting them, so as not to cut the shoots too close to the root. In fact, most people that use them will throw out the water from the first cooking, just for safety sake. The mature plants are mostly dark red in color, although there is a green phase and sometimes parts of the plants have yellowish tinge. All parts of the poke plant were once used medicinally, the root being more powerful than the leaves or berries, and consequently had to be used, sparingly. The main use was in the treatment of skin diseases and rheumatism. In Tipton County, poke does not grow widely anymore because of intensive cultivation, but can be found in open woods; that are not pastured.

More ambulances were being dispatched from Houma, La. where 8,000 refugees were sheltered. Sheriff J. P. Frazier at Houma said theer may have been two other. tornadoes south of Larose, or possibly the same tornado, which hit two other small towns" of Galliano and Golden Meadow but caused no casualties. Property damage both places was heavy, however, with power lines down and several more houses destroyed, • the sheriff said.

Warnings on the western coast of Louisiana were expected to be cancelled. Gale warnings in the Beaumont - Port Arthur area of the Texas coast, just west of the Louisiana state line, already were down. Gale warnings were up. for the coastline eastward to Panama City, Fla. The weather bureau predicted flooding in the New Orleans area, and said tides would rise on 40-mi!e-long Lake Ponchart- rain, which adjoins the city. 12-Foot Tides Expected Tides of up to 12 feet were predicted for the Louisiana coast from the hurricane core eastward to the mouth of the Mississippi. More' lhan 125,000 residents had left their homes, in scenes reminiscent of wartime-loading their belongings on battered trucks or standing in the boxcars of hastily put together- refugee trains. It was the biggest evacuation in the history of the hurricane- plagued Louisiana coast. Roads filled with cars and stockmen drove their cattle history of the hurricane-plagued Louisiana coast.
