The loss dropped the Giants one-half game behind the °itts- burgh Pirates, who defeated St. Louis 7-4. * * * Koufax helped move the third- place Dodgers to within 1V4 games of the top, pitching a four-hitter for his 21st victory against seven defeats. When the game :*/M only, a few batters old, though, Bolin looked as if he were going to steal the strikeout pitch right out of'Koufax' glove.

But Bolin couldn't maintain the pace and instead switched over to the base on balls pitch, the one Koufax threw so well in the first half of his major league career. Bolin walked six Dodgers, including two in the eighth inning when Los Angeles scored all four of its runs. * * * •. Koufax, on the other hand, than the 2Vi walks per game He's averaged in the last six years. The story in his first six years was a lot different. In that period he walked 5.3 batters a game.

In becoming the winningest pitcher in the majors, Koufax reduced his major league-leading earned run average to 1.81 and completed his 21st game in 32 starts.

He booted three in the fourth quarter, the last a 28-yarder with six secorv - left. There were some bright spots n the Browns' defeat, all in the !irst quarter, when they jumped ;o a 14-0 lead. Baltimore kept the pressure on quarterback Jim Ninowski n the second half after Frank *yan threw a 39-yard strike to Gary .Collins and Leroy Kelly dashed 46 yards fo another touchdown, . zig-zagging and leaping down the right side. * * * The Cleveland offense seemed to bog down in the scond quarter after Bob Boyd intercepted a Ryan pass on the Colts' 14. Baltimore Quarterback John Unitas bounced back in six plays with a 13-yard pass to Tom Matte for a touchdown. Lou Michaels added a ,43-yard leld goal that cut Cleveland's halftime lead to 14-10.

By RON RAPOPORT Associated Press Sports Writer It wasn't a playoff for the DCnnant or the last game of the World Series, but just about everything else surrounding Mickey Mantle's performance Friday had the distinct aura of juvenile sports fiction about il. The Yankees were down by a run in the bottom of the ninth of their game with Detroit and Hete Boyer was on first. Manager Ralph Houk called on Man;le, the aging superstar, who iad been out of the lineup for days with a pulled hamstring muscle in his leg. "Don't run if you hit it on the ground," said Houk, worried about Mantle's legs, 'Just go for the pump." ¥ * •* Mantle swung at the. first pitch and missed spectacularly. He swung again and off went the ball into never-never land. The Yanks won 6-5. After the game, Mantle felt about as you'd expect he might. "Any lime you hit a home run Remember Pay Your Paper Boy that wins a ball game," said Mickey, "it's a terrific feeling." : All but lost In the midst ot the ' Yankee's terrific feeling wa* Tiger pitcher Earl Wilson who iad put Detroit ahead 1-3 with lis two-run homer Into the third deck in the eighth.

Sue's a good driver. And that's the trouble. You've come to trust her over the years ... but really, you can't. Because even the best • drivers end up in some of the worst accidents. Drive defensively, and you won't end up on the receiving end of some other driver's mistake or sudden move. At intersections, never assume the right-of-way. Make defensive driving pay off by practicing it every second of every minute you're behind the wheel. It takes extra effort-but that exua effort's worth it. The forty-nine thousand people who died on. our highways last year would be the first to agree. If they could.
