Four ushers and two policemen were assigned to protect the brash, outspoken Chicago manager during T h u r s d a y night's game alter he had labelled the Red Sox tans as "bush" and threatened to instigate a $3 million law suit for "inadequate protection" at Fenway Park. As it turned out, however, the only one who needed protection was Conigliaro, who was nearly torn apart by his exuberant teammates after he drove a twc-out, two-run homer into the left field screen in the lltli Stanky wasn't even around to see the dramatic blow, which touched off a wild celebration on the field and in the clubhouse by the suddenly spirited Bosox.

Pittsburgh beat Philadelphia 5-2 after the Phillies had won the opener of a twi-night doubleheader 4-1 and Los Angeles shut out Chicago 5-0. Only hours earlier, Stanky said he had instructed his wife to sue lied Sox owner Tom Yawkey, the American League, and Player Association president Marvin Miller for $1 million apiece "if I am killed or maimed." That was in reference to an incident during Wednesday night's twi-night doubleheader in which he was bombarded with debris by several unruly fans around the dugout. "I might have been killed or maimed because of the inad- quale protection here," he c o m m e n t e d . "Mr. Yawkey thinks more of the deer and the pheasants on his farm in flesh here on his ball field." Mickey Mantle hit a towering, 462-foot homer, his 13lh of the season and the 509th of his career, in the sixth inning and set up an insurance run in the ninth with a double as the Yankees' Mel Stoltlemyre posted his fourth shutout of the season.

Brewer, who gained his second victory in three decisions, also contributed a run-scoring double to the Dodger attack. HECKMAN TOPS CASPER BY I Amateur Rules Open tor a Day SPRINGFIELD, N.J. (UPI)- to give up on himself any more The amateurs, in the person of aji ice-cold young Texan named Marty Fleckman, have had their amazing day and now Arnold Palmer, Billy Casper and their fellow pros are expected to take over the U.S. Open golf championship. Even the 23-year-old Fleckman, who isn't sure he wants to be a golf pro, was surprised to find himself leading the field into the open's second round with a 67 that gave him a two- stroke margin. "I expect my dad is going to ask me when I will start playing my regular game and than Nelson ever did. Admitting that he was surprised to be out front, the calm young Port Arthur, Tex., amateur went on to add that he is "very confident," "I'll just tee it up today and play the best I can," said the young man, whose chief claims to golfing fame before Thursday were victory in the N.C.A.A. college championship in 1965for the University of Houston and membership on this year's winning U.S. Walker Cup team.

Greene provided the biggest thrill of the o p e n i n g round Thursday night by equalling the world record in the 100 yard dash with a doc king of :09.1. His effort capped a great evening for sprinters in Brlgham Young University Stadium as they took the play away from the more heralded distance and weight men. An opening night c r o w d of 1,900 fans sat in 56 degree weather to watch Greene tie the mark held jointly by B o b Hayes, Jim Hines and Harry Jerome.

Both are left fielders, both are 18, both are righltianded batters and throwers and both find the line drive the hardest play to make. Bruce Johnson stands 5-9 and weights a 175 pounds. He graduated in 1966 from Wilson High School in Portland, Ore. and he played defensive safety in football, guard in basketball "but I didn't score a whole lot or points" and hit .448 and .320 his last two years of prep baseball. He hit slightly under .200 with the Cubs here last year. This past year Bruce has completed one semester at Pacific Lulheran College in Tacoma, Wash. Johnny Johnson checks in at 6-'/ ? and 170 pounds and hails from North Chicago, HI. where he hit .333 and .323 his final two seasons of prep baseball. He also averaged about 10 points a game in four years of basketball, Hunting and fishing "and some golf" are the pasttlmes of Bruce. Johnny likes to play basketball and baseball "all 1 can as those are my favorite sports." Both men signed with the Cubs because they were drafted by the Chicago club, Bruce in 1966 and Johnny two weeks ago. "I was offered a pretty fair deal," said Bruce, "and I wanted the chance to play pro ball and this was the time to get into it. I didn't have much contact with other clubs though." DETROIT (UPI) - Casslus Clay, the unbeaten champion without a title, said goodby to boxing Thursday night tor it least a couple months--maybe for a couple years, "There are other things 1 have to do-more Important things," Clay said.."I have to study for my ministry and 1 have a lot of invitations for speaking engagements." One invitation he didn't mention was the one coming up Moiday in Houston, Texas. He Matron and the great miler from Kansas, all qualified for the finals with a minimum of difficulty.

When they hit the spots on the outside corner I'm in trouble." Johnny frowns on the curve ball, too, as "it blinds you com- goes to federal court there Ing In. I like sliders and change- because he refused to enter the ups to hit, however." COLLEGE WORLD SERIES At Omahi, Neb.

Mrs. King, the top-ranked women's player in the United States, beat Karen Krantzcke of Austnfla, 6-2, 6-3, Thursday while Mrs. Jones disposed of Australia's Kerry Melville, 6-2, While both admit the line drive is the toughest outfield play, Bruce added, "The pop-up at certain times of the night really baffles you when it gets up into Johnny slated, "It would be the sky." Johnny finds the windy great if I can make the Chicago day the toughest when "those line drives sometimes take off and the liner gets out to you quicker then you think il will." There's a possibility there will be a Johnson, Bruce or Johnny, in left field when the Cubs take the field next Thursday to launch their 66-game schedule. Cubs as I'd be playingday games and close lo home as North Chicago is only 43-45 miles from Wrigley Field. My favorite Cub player is Billy Williams. Bruce attributes his low batting average with Caldwell a year ago to the fact he didn't play too much. "It's hard to improve when you aren't playing," he noted. "I would like to hit the ball well this season and move up the line with the Cubs." Johnny said, "I only want to do a good job while I'm here and make it as far as I can. f don't know how long it will lake me to advance, but I have a lot of time yet." As for hitting, Bruce likes the U.S. Army on the grounds of being a conscientious objector. Clay, who prefers his Muslim name, Muhammad All, toyed with a popular young Detroit fighter--Alvin "Blue" Lewis-and another unknown--Orville Quails of Chicago-tor three rounds each Thursday night in his final fight for what he says will be some time.
