Ida'w Free Press 4 Catdwelt New-Tr'aciae. Man-lay, Jjn« 5, 1967 -- 7 Clemente Succeeds 'Without Trying' By United Press international Roberto Clemente is trying to demonstrate how to succeed without reallytrying. The Pittsburgh outfielder, who claims he never tries to hit home runs, crashed a pair of round-trippers off Los Angeles ace Don Drysdale to drive in all four Pirate runs Sunday in a 4-1 victory overtheDodgers. The Dodgers held a 1-0 lead to the f i f t h when C l e m e n t e cracked a solo homer wer the right field fence to mark (he first homer oft Drysdale this season. The Dodger righthander had not surrendered a homer in 92 innings. His next lime up in the seventh, Clemente connected again off Drysdale for his 12th rounoMripper of the season after Matty Alou and Maury Wills had singled, "I never go for home runs," said the National League's most valuable player after the game. "I haven't tried to hit one since 1960 when I thought I had a chance to hit 20." Clemente cracked three hits to boost his National League hatting leadership to .373, 22 points better than nearest rival Orlando Cepeda of the St Louis Cardinals. Elsewhere in the National League, San Francisco blanked New York twice, 7-0 and 5-0, Cincinnati edged Atlanta 5-4, Philadelphia defeated Houston 6-1, and St. Louis nipped Chicago 4-3. Bob Veale, although plagued by wildness, picked up the victory for the Pirates, his seventh in eight decisions. Leo Cardenas slashed a home run and a double to pace the league-leading Cincinnati Reds over the Chicago Cubs in the 14th one-run decision In the Reds' last 15 games. The Cincinnati shortstop's double in the third, coupled with singles by Floyd Robinson and Pete Rose and Felipe Alou's throwing error, gave the Reds a 2-0 lead. Cardenas sparked a three-run uprising In the fourth when he hit his second homer of the season with Johnny Edwards aboard. Johnny Callison's double and Johnny Briggs' three-run homer capped a six-run ninth inning that carried the Philadelphia Phillies over the Houston 'Astros. Calllson doubled with none out in the ninth to start the rally and knock out Astro rookie righthander Don Wilson, who had blanked the Phils on three hits for the first eight innings. Lou Brock singled horn Dave HIcketts with two out in the eighth inning to give the St. Louis Cardinals a triumph over the Chicago Cubs. The hot-hitting outfielder delivered his game-winning hit after Klcketts singled and moved to second on Dal Maxvlll's sacrifice. The Cubs had taken a 3-2 lead in the fifth when Curt Flood -committed his first error in227 games on a fly ball by pitcher Rich Ny«. The error snapped Flood's consecutive errorless game streak at 226 games, a National League record. Tito Fuentes and Willie McCovey smacked three-run homers to back lefthander Joe Gibbon's four-Alt pitching and pace the San Francisco Giants over the New York Mets In the first game of adouoleheader. Ollie Brown's sixth-inning homer with two on in the nightcap gave the Giants a sweep and their 14th victory in the last 18 games. The batting style that produced 511 career home runs and made Mel Ott a Hall of Famer is making Dick McAullffe one of the most feared hitters in the American League. The unique way in which Ott used to lift his right leg as he eased Into the pitch was brought back to life when McAullffe broke in with the Detroit Tigers In 1961. It has paid some handsome dividends for the spunky Infielder ever sir.ce. The New York Yankees felt the string of McAuliffe's bat when he cracked his fifth lifetime grand slam in the 13th Inning Sunday to give the Tigers an 11-1 victory in the second game of a doubleheader after New York took the opener 5-0. The win enabled Detroit to hold its slim game lead in the American League. Ott, the former Giant great who terrorized National League pitchers for 22 years, was the only player to use such in unorthodox stance In the majors until McAullffe decided to give it a try. McAullffe his socked 102 home runs In his short career and has twice been elected as the all-star shortstop. Elsewhere in the American League, B a 111 m o r etrlpped Washington 7-5 In 19 Innings, Minnesota edged California 8-7 in 10 Innings, Cleveland blanked Boston 3-0, and Chicago and Kansas City split a doubleheader, with the Sox winning the opener 2-0 and the As taking the nightcap 5-4. McAuliffe's blast climaxed a tense struggle that saw the Tigers blow a 6-1 lead. Jake Gibbs sent the game into extra innings with a pinch-homer in the bottom of the ninth off reliever Fred Gladding. In the first game Al Downing pitched a (tve-hltter and was tacked by a two-run homer by Joe Pepitone In the first inning and an inside the park home run by Robinson in the seventh. Andy Etchebarren belted a two-run homer in the 19th Inning to give the Orioles a 7-5 victory over the Washington Senators in the longest game of the major league season. Bob Priddy, who gave up the deciding blow that ended the fve hour and 18 minute contest, was charged with his third loss in as many decisions. Stu Miller, the last of five Baltimore pitchers who combined for 21 strikeouts, tied a major league record, picked up his first win of the season after four defeats. Bob AlllsoQ laid down a squeeze bunt with one out In the 10th inning that enabled pinch- runner Ted Uhlaender to score the winning run for the Twins. A 500-foot blast off the facing of the upper deck In left field by Harmon Kllebrew, highlighted a home run barrage that saw fflck Relchardt, Zoillo V«r- salles, Bob Rodgers and John Werhas all hit for the distance. Steve Hargan pitched a five- hit shutout and Leon Wagner smashed his eighth homer of the season to lead the Indians to victory. Hargan, who has hurled four shutouts this year struck out six as he won his seventh game In 11 decisions. Tommy John scattered five hits as the White Sox blanked the Athletics in their f i r s t game. Ken B«rry drove In both runs in the opened with a four- Inning single. In the nightcap, Jim Hash's single capped a four-run outburst in the fourth Inning. Tommie Agee cracked his ninth homer of the season for Chicago. Cassius Ignores Athletes Urgings CLEVELAND (l'PI)-Ignor- iag the arguments of fellow Negro athletes, boxer Cassius Clay stood firm today on his refusal to serve in the United States Army. He will go on trial in two weeks in federal court In Houston. Former Cleveland fullback Jimmy Brown, UCLA basketball star Lew Alcindor, the Boston Celtics Bill Russell and seven other athletes held what Brown described as a "heated" discussion Sunday with Clay about his position on the draft. Clay emerged from the meeting to report "nothing new." "They know now I'm completely sincere," Clay said. "I actually believe in the Muslim religion." Clay's final appeal for a draft deferment was on the grounds he was a Black Muslim minister to whom boxing was only a hobby. The World Boxing Association stripped Clay of his heavyweight crown when he refused induction but the 24- year-old boer said: Mr. 7/nk Bests Hand/cap Fi'e/d Mr. Tink, owned by PaulGroff.

(UPI)-Kathy Whltworth has successfully defended her first professional golf championship, shoot- Ing a one-over-par 70 to take the St. Louis Women's Open with a 54-hole total of 209. Carol Mann was second, two strokes behind. Miss Whltworth had won 30 championships previously in a nine-year pro career. A hot putter was the margin of victory in St, Louis, as she recaptured the title she won in 196S. Sunday, Miss Whitworth sank a 40-foot birdie putt and saved a par with a 25-foot putt as, playing in the last threesome, she protected the margin of two strokes with which she entered the day. Saturday she sank birdie putts of 35 and 20 feet and Friday knocked in birdie chip shots also of 35 and 20 feet. " It was a struggle all week," Miss Whitworth said after finally cracking her jinx in tournaments she had won before. "It's great to win this one," Judy Kimball, the first-round leader, who trailed Miss Whitworth by two strokes after two rounds, shot a final-round 72 to fall to third, three strokes out of the lead. Miss Whltworth's victory earned her $2,025. Total prize money was $13,500. Fight Results Saturday PANAMA (UPI)-Isrnael Lapina, 13S, Panama, outpointed Alfredo Urblna, 135 1 /:, Mexico (10).

The Belmont victory was the eighth in H starts for Damascus who paid $3.60, $2.60 and $2.40. Cool Reception will undergo surgery after which his owners will decide whether he will goto stud or return to racing. OVERCOMES SHAKES Gets Free Trips MEMPHIS, Tern. (t'PI)- Dave Hill was to walk twice for free today over the 6,466-yard piece of real estate that paid him $5,000 per trip during the four days of the $100,000 Memphis Open. The boyish-looking pro from Jackson, Mich., who won $20,000 Sunday for finishing first in the 10th annual tournament, was among a field of 47 professionals and amateurs competing for 36 holes over the Colonial Country Club course in the sectional qualifying for the U.S. Open, Hill, whose net stop is the Bulck Open at Flint, Mich., proved the master of the short but demanding Colonial course during the first three days of the Memphis Open, but a case of the shakes almost cost him the lead in the final round. "The toughest thing in the world is to lead a tournament when everybody e»pecls you to fall fiat on your face," said the slender, dark-haired Hill after Coac/i Honored ST. JOSEPH, Mo. (t'PI)-The National Association oflntercol- leglate Athletics announced Sunday that Grambllng's Ralph Waldo Emerson Jones has been named the association's "baseball coach ot the year." Se/s Obscure Mark PASADENA, Calif. (VPI)- George Frenn set an unofficial world record at the Rose Bowl Invitational track and field meet Sunday with a heave of 48 feet, three-quarter inches in the obscure 56-pound weight throw. Frenn represented the Pasadena Athletic Association. Take Po/o Win MILWAUKEE, WIs. (t'PI)- The Milwaukee Polo Club scored four goals In the sixth chukker, Including two by Harold Barry, and went on to top Houston 11-7 Sunday in the National Polo League season opener. carding a three-over-par 73 on his final round. "I almost quit breathing out there," he said. "I've normally been able to think of something to sing, but today my mouth was too dry," Hill finished 72 holes at 272, eight under par, and two strokes ahead of Johnny Pott, who emerged from the pack with a blistering final round of four-under-par 66 for a tournament total of 274 to take second place money of $12,000. South African Harold Henning was all alone in third place three strokes back, while Randy Glover of Florence, S.C., and Dan Sikes of Jacksonville, Fla.; tied for fourth at 21C. Henning fired a 68 Sunday, while Cover had a 67 and Sikes carded a 71. Hill's previous worst round was a 68 Saturday. He opened with a 65 on Thursday to take a one-stroke lead and widened his margin to four strokes on Friday with a 66. "Dr. Fager is the only other horse with a case at this time," said Whiteley, referring to the horse which beat Damascus In the Gotham Stakes but did not run in the Kentucky Derby, Preakness or Belmonl. "The mile-and-a-half Belmont distance is a real test of a champion," he added. "It's a tough race. Very few stake horses race that distance in this country. Damascus has got to be a good horse. He was third in the Derby at 1% miles and winner of the Preakness at 1 316 miles and the Belmont at a mile and a half. Eighteen Belmont winners have been named best three- year-old and 12 have been named horse-oMhe year but Damascus is unlikely to be honored unless he beats Dr. Fager in future meetings. According to the current plans of Whiteley and John Nerud, trainer of Dr. Fager, the two three-year-olds could meet at least three times--in the American Derby, the American . Classic in Chicago and the T ravers at Saratoga. Proud Clarion, winner of the Kentucky Derby but fourth in the Belmont al Aqueduct, will be rested until the Travers. Loyd Gentry, Proud Clarion's trainer, said Sunday that the Derby winer "is a little thin" and pointed out, "running In the three big races has taken a lot out of him."
