Although both the IG^iound Buford anil 230-pound Mike Epstein narrowly avoided a third base collision in the sixth inning of Tuesday night's game, the Washington Senators were awarded (he winning run in damages as (lie Chicago White So suffered a 4-2 defeat. The near accident was witnessed by 13,616 people in Comiskey Park but only third base umpire Bob Stewart and Washington Manager Gil Hodges appeared aware of the infraction as Epstein, the massive rookie, was cut down at the plate by cenlerfielder Tonunie Agee as ht attempted to score from second. Stewar! rulwl that Hufonl, one of the most accomplished taserunners in the American League, had obstructed Epstein as he headed for third base and allowed the run on the basis of interference. The (ally raised the Senators' lead to 3-1 bu! proved lo be the winning margin when Tom McCraw homered for the White Sox in the same inning. Detroit edged within 2 1-2 games of ttie While Sox by nipping California 2-1, Cleveland clipped Kansas City 5-3 and Boston whipped New York 7-1 in other AL games. Minnesota and Baltimore were not scheduled. St. Louis stretched ^National League lead to 1 1-2 games with a C-2 triumph over Houston while the runnerup Cincinnati lieds bowed to San Krancisco 51. Philadelphia flailed New York 4-0, Chicago stopped Pittsburgh 5-3 and Los Angeles beat Atlanta 3-2 in 10 innings. "1 wasn't conscious of Buford at all," said Epstein afterwards. "I was just trying to score. ! slowed down to go around third and I didn't even know he was there." A! Kaline doubled home one run and scored on a single by Jim Norlhrup in the eighth inning, lining the Tigerstothelr victory over the Angels, only the fourth in the last 14 games for the second-place Bengals. Woodie Held homered for the only California run. Uave Wickershain pitched the final two innings in relief lo notch his fourth straight win. Luis Tiant, who hasn't lost since April 14, belted a solo homer and gained his sixth successive triumph for Cleveland with ninth-inning relief help from Steve Bailey. Lee Maye also homered for the Indians and Phil IJoof and liick Monday slammed solo homers for the Athletics. Joe Foy crashed a grand slam home run with two out in the fifth inning and Carl Yastrzem- ski followed with a towering homer off the upper deck in right as the Red Sox routed the Yankees. Gary Bell, who pitched a five-hitler for his third victory in four decisions with Boston, lost his shutout on Joe Pepilone's leadoff homer in the ninth. The uniform is different but Larry Jackson's right arm is the same when he's pitching against the New York Mels. The veteran pitcher beat the Mels in the first game they ever played back in 1962 and he's never lost the touch even though he's played for two different teams since then. Jackson boosted his lifetime record against the Mets to 18-0 Tuesday night--only Juan Marichal's 19-0 mark is better- when he fired a one-hit shutout as the Philadelphia Phillies chalked up a 4-0 victory. "Pitching against the Mets Is a two-day deal," Jackson claimed after the shutout, "I fee! belter and I guess they press a little because they've never beaten me." Jackson was a member of the St. Louis Cardinals when he beat the Mets in their 1962 debut and he was shipped to the Cubs after that season. Last April he came to the Phils. The only hit off Jackson was Tommy Davis' second inning double off the Scoreboard that just eluded John Callison's glove. Jackson faced 29 Mets; struck out six and walked one. It was the 33rd shutout of Jackson's career, tying him with teammate Jim Bunning for third place en the National League activeplayerlisl. Dal Maxvill tripled in the tie- breaking run in the seventh and Orlando Cepeda followed with a three-run homer in the eighth as league-leading St. Louis topped Houston. Larry Jaster went the first eight innings to pick up the victory and Kon Willis finished up. Rookie Chuck Harlenstein, recalled from the minors two weeks ago, pitched 4 2-3 innings of scoreless relief ball, to give the Cubs their victory over the Pirates. Hartenstein relieved starter Phil Niekro after Donn Clendeon hit a three-run pinch homer and Matty Alou followed with a single. Steve Blass started and lost for the Pirates as Ron Santo and Ted Savage each collected three hits and Sanlo drove in two runs. Juan Marichal became; the majors first 10-game winner as he hurled the Giants to a five- hit victory over the Reds. Marichal, who boosted his record to 10-5, also cracked a run-scoring single in the sixth inning. John Roseboro worked Claude Raymond for a bases-loaded walk with two out in the 15th to give the Dodgers the victory over Atlanta. Bob Miller got the win for the Dodgers by working one inning. Bill Singer started for the Dodgers and. gave up four hits in nine innings while Denny Lemasler worked 13 for the Braves and gave up nine. SPORTS SPORT PARADE Speak English To Avoid fight By MILTON KICHMAN NEW YORK (lPI)-Secreta- ry General Paul Rlcliards used to have this one rule when he was running his own private L'.N. Speak English so everybody can underhand! This was when he occupied the head chair in the Chicago Y/hite Sox Security Council and many of his delegates were multi-lingual. Some of them protested his decree as being unilateral. They argued they couldn't speak English that well. "Okay, t h e n," Richards backed off a bit, "the only subject I want to hear in the clubhouse is baseball." Cuban-born Minnie Minoso found the perfect way lo get around it. He'd babble away in Spanish a mile a minute until Richards happened to come by. . NHnal^ w.ouW' cut short his conversation in mid-sentence. Then/purposely loud enough for Richards to hear, he'd say: "Chicago White Sox!" Besides, the Dodgers ottered Wes Parker for Carty only a short time back and Richards Houston's Golf Team Solid Pick SH'AWNEE - ON-DELAWARE, Pa. (UPI) -'An old tournament with an old favorite begins here today when the 70th ^annual National Intercollegiate Athletic Association golf championship gets underway at the Shawnee Inn. The .Cougars from the University 'of Houston, defending champions and team winner in nine of the last 11 years, lead the pack In the battle among 39 schools for the team crown. The competition for the individual title was rated a tossup among the field of some 240 collegians who will lee off in the 72-hole tournament at the par-12, 1,000-yard r e s o r t course. Among those expected to vie for the individual crown in the nation's oldest golf tournament were Jack Lewis Jr. of Wake Forest, John Miller of Brigham Young, Benson R. McLendon of Louisiana State and Kemp Richard of Southern California. The team title, which Houston won by four strokes last year over San Jose State, will be decided after 35 holes. The individual field also will be cut to the low 50 scores and ties after 36 holes. acted as if his pocket was being picked. The whole thing comes back because of that scuffle between Hank Aaron and Rico Carty in mid-air Monday night. Richards was not present when it took place on a chartered jet somewhere between Houston and Los Angeles, but as the man who oversees the Braves' baseball operations he naturally becomes involved. He was in San Francisco looking over some draftees Tuesday when he learned about (he trouble by telephone from traveling secretary Donald Davidson in Los Angeles. "These things are going to happen," said Richards, unalarmed, "They've happened before between other ball players and they will happen .again," . , . . . A report,that Carty Immediately will be traded is pure hokutfi. The Braves couldn't trade him if they wanted to because the deadline has passed and they could never get waiver*. This coming winter, maybe. Now, never. According to Aaron's version of. Monday night's episode, he was talking to pitcher, Clay Carroll in the back of the plane where Carly wa5 playing cards. "Rico started talking about me--in Spanish--but I knew it was about me," Aaron said. "So I started kidding with Mike de la Hoz, and Rico thought I was talking about him. "He told me, 'Go to hell.' I .told Mm, 'Go to hell yourself,' Then he call me a name." Thai^dld it. A few punches were thrown-butthe fight was quickly broken upT^x. When the plane landed in'L;A. and the Braves got lo their hotel, Aaron went to manager Billy Hitchcock's room. "I'm sorry it happened, very sorry," he said to Hitchcock. "But this thing didn't happen on the spur of (he moment. It's been building up." Aaron, who was greatly upset over il all, doesn't make it a habit to push anyone around. He's quiet and doesn't use his hands, but can if he has to. Carly can be quicker on the trigger, though. He was an amateur fighter in his native Dominican Republic and a good one, too. Everybody has problems but maybe Carty has more. His batting average is 60 points down from last year, he has a sore shoulder and he's been on the bench the past few weeks. Like Aaron, he apologized also. $10.000 FINE AND 5-YEAR PRISON TERM Clay Will Appeal Draft Conviction HOUSTON (UP1) - Cassius guilty. L'.S. Dist. Judge Joe Muslim minister.

An all-white jury deliberated 20 minutes before finding the former heavyweight champion Ferrari Seeks Racing Safety SQUARING AWAY to bunt are Caldwell Cub iiifielders Enrique Rosendo, left, and Larry Williams. Rosendo is a first baseman and Williams a shortstop. They're anxious for Thursday's Pioneer League opener. (Staff Photo) Williams and Rosendo May Sparkle for Cubs By BOB HOOKER CALDWELL- A little husU ling shortstop from Florida and an ambitious firstbasemanfrom Puerto Rico could spark the Caldwell Cubs of the Pioneer League to big tilings this summer, beginning with Thursday night's opener here against Idaho Falls. The men in mind are shortstop Larry Williams of Orlando, Fla., and Enrigue Rosendo of VegaAlta,P.R. Williams, 21, Is only 5-6 1 /? and weighs 150 pounds, but he hit and stole bases like mad for Allen (S. C.) University from which he graduated In 1966. A native of Daylona Beach, Fla., Williams now teaches elementary school at Orlando. In his senior year at Allen he stole 18 bases in 12 conference games and baited .398 after hitting .500 in 1965 as a junior. As a prep, he played halfback in football, averaged 16 points in basketball, and hit ,370 in baseball. Rosendo is 19, stands 5-10 and weighs 180. He graduated from Apollo San An tone High School in Puerto Rico in 1965 and "might start college this fall." There was no high school baseball program in Puerto Rico, but Rosendo hit "between .350 and .360 lor the town team." Williams follows all sports closely as his hobby, while Rosendo likes to fish. Rosendo was drafted by the Cubs this past April "and signed with them as Iliiedtheiroffer." Williams also joined tee Cubs this year "after talking with the Cardinals but I received a better offer from the Cubs." An adept base-stealer, it is only natural that Williams' baseball idol is Pittsburgh's Muary Wills who in past seasons tore up the National League with his thievery on the bases. "I only hope some day I can be as good," said Williams. As for this summer, Rosendo wants to "learn as much as I can so I can move up the line. Maybe I can rise to the big leagues in three years," he said. Williams also wants to "learn quickly as 1 can this summer so I can advance as soon as possible." Both players like fast ball pitching and Williams "really prefers the 2-0 pitch." The Floridan finds most trouble with the low outside curve. Rosendo also has "grief with curve balls" but he hits sliders and change-ups "pretty good." The toughest fielding play for Williams is moving to the right for groundersbetweenthirdbase and shortstop. Also, balls hit into (lie hole are "unbeatable." Rosendo can make the first, second-first double play, but he finds a tough time with bunt plays. MODENA, Italy (UPI)-Italian automotive designer Enzo Ferrari, speaking in the wake of a series of racetrack disasters, today called for tough new safety regulations to protect drivers and the public. Ferrari saidracingcardeslgn has reached an "exasperating level" of technical expertise, with cars loo powerful and too light in weight. "The pilot is swaddled in gasoline .... .this ,is the sad reality," said Ferrari, whose own number one works driver, Lorenzo Bandini, burned to death In a crash at the Monle Carlo Formula One Grand Prix last month. British driver Boley Pittard burned to death in another accident at Monza, June 4, and Italy's Giacomo (Geki) Russo and Switzerland's Fehr Beat were killed in a pileup at Caserta last Sunday. Several other drivers and almost two dozen spectators were injured in the Caserta and other Italian racing accidents last weekend. Speaking at a news conference in which he announced new Ferrari, Covington, Clay's chief attorney, said he planned to file an appeal today and would ask a new appeal bond at the same time. Clay remains free on a $5,000 bond he put up in April. Clay, who plans to stay in Houston for a few days, said he had expected to get the maximum sentence. He had said he could not get justice in a white man's court and based part of his defense on the lack of Negroes on the Louisville, Ky., and Houston draft boards. Judee InEraham first ruled but the Louisville and Houston whose small prestigious firm rarely turns boar ds were correct in classify, out 50 models of his Formula One vehicles, said merely the reducing the cylinderage of racing cars was not enough. He proposed that Formula One specifications he revised to require vehicles with a minimum weight of 650 kilograms (1,430 pounds). He said the extra weight would encourage designers to build greater safety into cars. The jury received the case at 5:50 p.m. CDT (6:50 p.m. EOT) after both the prosecution and defense took only 10 minutes each to sum up their arguments. Normally the judge then would have conducted a pre- sentence investigation, but Clay asked that it be waived. California Bighorn Sheep Increasing in Owyhee BOISE- A recent helicopter census of the California bighorn sheep in Owyhee County located 56 animals, reported the Idaho Fish and Game Department today. A total of 38 sheep were originally released in this area, so (here has been a herd increase of at least 18 animals. According to Dick Norell regional game biologist, 19 ani. mals were first introduced into the East Fork of the Owyhee collaboration with America's River area in Owyhee County site TTirfiC+j-inn Tlt-n nnrt I?nM*nn r~ i._ m^n « . . . . _ / *"'*·· rams, three yearlings, and 12 lambs. Norell noted that results of this census indicate three important points. (1) The sheep are able to live successfully in the area. Some of them have been there as long as four years. (2) They have stayed in the area where they were released instead of straying other areas. Forty-five of the sheep were found on Battle Creek within a few miles of the release Firestone Tire and Rubber Co., Ferrari read out a letter he wrote the Automobile Club of Western France in which he said Ferrari cars would not compete at next year's Le Mans 24 hour race if proposed new specifications are adopted. The specifications would limit Formula One cars to 5,000 CC in 1963. Since then an additional 19 animals have been introduced into this area.
