SPORTS PARADE NEW YORK (UPI)—Baseball has come to a pretty ridiculous state of affairs'when technicians have to be called in to figure out how to catch a fly ball. A lot of people are holding their sides laughing although it's no joke to the Houston Astros, who are holding their breath waiting for a special team of technicians to come up with the answer. The whole trouble seems to be the sunlight reflecting through the plastic skylight of Houston's $31.6 million Astrodome. The outfielders can't see the ball during day games so the DuPont Company has flown a five- man research crew from Wilmington, Del., to find some kind of solution. • .. . They have until April 25, on which date the Astros play their next day game at home against the Pittsburgh Pirates. Al Springer, one of Houston's outfielders, says the way matters stand now it's pure accident if a fly ball is caught on a sunny day. Tried Orange Balls ' "Sun glasses don't help,,", he claims. "They tried orange and yellow colored balls and they didn't help, either. You can see the ball all right on a cloudy day but you can't depend on having cloudy days all the time.' ! There is no prc-Mm at night, which led some progressive thinker's to suggest the Astros could re-schedule all 21 of their day games to, but there undoubtedly would be considerable opposition to such. a switch from the other 'National League clubs- Somehow this whole amusing business recalls the sad plight cf former Dodger pitcher Billy Loes, who vainly tried to .con vince everyone in sight he lost a grounder in the sun while working a World Series game against the Yankees a few years back. Few people believed Loes, even though he swore on the Gcwanus Canal, crossed his heart and hoped to lose a no- hitter if he was lying. .^...^pes Was Truthful Loes '.actually was telling the truth and so are the Houston outfielders. Left field apparently presents the biggest problem although young Rusty Staub, who played right field in those exhibition lilts, says that sector was no picnic cither. Houston Manager Lum Harris went out to the outfield to see for himself and was forced to agree with his players. "I could not see the ball," he says, "but they're working on the roof and I'm sure they'll come up with something." They'd better or heaven help those defenseless Houston outfielders—along with all rival outfielders who will have to man their battle stations under the dome on a sunny day. MASS MARRIAGE MEXICO CITY (UPI)— The governing PRI party announced today that it will make honest women or -juncreds of unwed mothers at a mass wedding ceremony here on Mother's Day.

Yes, 1965 might be the year the New York Mets finally emerge from the National League cellar. For one thing, the four-year- old New York darlings picked up their first victory of the year Thursday after only two setbacks, nipping Houston 5-4 in 10 innings. Never before have the historically slow starting Mets gained their initial triumph of the season this early. All through spring training, Casey Stengel and his players have voiced the same optimistic theories that are heard every year. But already this season certain facts seem to indicate that the New Yorkers are stronger and t he .opposition may be weaker. Must Beat Astros For example, the Astros are the team that Mets must supplant in evacuating the cellar and who knows what havoc lies ahead for them in their multimillion dollar,' magnificent Astrodome that can't be used, in its present -state, for daytime baseball. And the Mets themselves look improved. In the second inning Thursday ex-Cardinal outfielder Johnny Lewis started the season's first triple play. After snaring a fly ball, Lewis cut down a man at the plate and catcher Chris Cannizzaro nailed the third out catching a man trying to go from first to second on the throw. The winning pitcher was 18- year-old Jim Bethke, whom Stengel has used twice in three games. The young southpaw came on in the top of the 10th and extinguished a Houston rally. Bobby Klaus, replacing injured All-Star second baseman Ron Hunt, won it for Bethke with a home run inside the ..left field foul line off Claude Raymond. NL Action Elsewhere iu the National League, Milwaukee tripped Chicago 5-1 and Cincinnati drubbed St. Louis 10-4. Los Angeles was rained out at Pittsburgh and San Francisco had its game at Philadelphia washed away. In the American League, Detroit defeated Minnesota 6 4, Washington beat Chicago 3-1. Kansas City stopped Cleveland 7-3 for its first victory of the year, and the Yankees got back to their winning ways with a 4-0 whitewash of Los Angeles behind Mel'Stottlemyre. Milwaukee baseball fans showed they want and deserve major league ball with a turnout of 33,874 for the final hdme opener with the Braves as host. Eddie-Mathews, the only Brave remaining from the team that moved to Milwaukee from Boston a dozen years ago, collected two hits and drove in a run to support Bob Sadwski's four- hit hurling. - Jackson Shelled Larry Jackson, the majors winningest pitcher last. year, made his second start' of. the young season and got shelled again, leaving after four innings trailing 4-0. However, it was his first defeat of the year. First baseman Ernie Banks homered in the fifth for the Cubs only run." Gordon Coleman powdered a grand slam home run and Vada Pinson belted a three run blast as the Reds handed winless St. Louis its third straight setback. Cincinnati's John Tsitouris went all the way, giving up only five STATE ROAD 28 EAST, TIPTON, IND- ||l'^=^== Maris Gells First Homer By CURT BLOCK UPI Sports Writer When the Yankees well-oiled machine stalls, the man to call for is Mel Stottlemyre. He may not have worked opening day but that doesn't mean Manager Johnny Keane considers him anything other than his No. 1 hurler. It was Stottlemyre who got the Yankee caravan rolling Thursday night with a- seven- hit, 4-0 whitewash of the Los Angeles Angels for New York's first victory after two consecutive one-run setbacks.' The 6-foot-2 blonde righthand­ er doesn't possess an overpowering fast ball, nor does he break off back bending curves. , He works in a steady, if not spectacular fashion, but the results are simply astounding. Had Fine Control The Angels couldn't put two hits together in the same inning Thursday and the 23-year- old sensation was razor sharp with his control, striking out four and walking none. Stottlemyre was in mid-season form two weeks ago. He had the best spring on the Yankee staff, toiling 40 innings and compiling an earned run average of 1.57. And for those who may have forgotten, Stottlemyre was the youngster fervently summoned from the minors last August when the American League champions were in dire straits and who proceeded to put together a 9-3 mark and a 2.05 ERA, working the crucial games consistently. New-York jumped on starter and loser Marcelino Lopez for single tallies in the first, third and fifth innings and home run king Roger Maris clubbed his first of the campaign in the eighth to complete the scoring. Other AL Games In other American League action, Washington clipped Chicago 3-1, Kansas City clowned Cleveland 7-3 and Detroit recorded a 6-4 triumph over Minnesota. Boston and Baltimore were idle. , . In National League play, the Mets squeezed past Houston 5-4 in 10 innings,' Cincinnati slaughtered winless St. Louis 10-4, and . Milwaukee celebrated its home opener with a 5-1 decision over Chicago. San Francisco at Philadelphia and Los. Angeles at Pittsburgh both were rained out. Washington's Benn'te Daniels held the White Sox hitless for 7-2-3 innings before yielding a single to pinchhitter Smoky Burgess. The Pale Hose pushed over a tying run in the eighth and Daniels retired for a pinch­ hitter the following inning. Willie Kh'kland and Frank Howard homered in the ninth to assure the 32-year-old Senator veteran of the victory. Tigers Win Third The Detroit Tigers, moving briskly behind acting Manager Bob Swift, captured their third game without a defeat to become the league's only unbeaten team.' Norm Cash and Al Kaline crashed roundtrippers and righthander Dave Wickersham scattered nine hits in his complete game performance. Kaline's game-winning, two-run circuit came off the slants of Minnesota reliever Jerry Fosnow and evened the young southpaw's record at 1-1. Shortstop Bern Campaneris and third baseman Ed Charles led the offensive charge in the A's first success of the season. Kansas City lefty John O'Donoghue spaced eight hits while Campaneris contributed four safeties and two runs batted in and Charles had two hits and three RBI's. hits. His counterpart. ex-Red Bob Purkey, found rough sledding in his first appearance as. a Cardinal. The veteran righty" was clubbed for eight hits and nine runs, hit three batters and committed a balk before exiting. Send Hallmark Easter Cards. Willy's Stationery. C-166 Enjoy . . .
