Not at his old job, of course, but at his new one. "I'm getting used to it," said Sandy during a rehearsal break at one of NBC's television studios. "I'm still frightened,, but I'm not te.rrilied anymore." The 31-year-old former Dodger ace didn't even look frightened. He and bespectacled Y.A. Tittle both 1 ookedperfectly at ease sittin, in as guest star participants on a day-time panel show Timrsday and Koufax, hired primarily as asporlsi.ast- er, said this was the first time he was doing a show of this type. "People keep asking me if I miss baseball," said Sandy, lighting a cigaret. "Of course I do. How could I help but miss it? I figure, though, the next best thing to actually playing it is to be around if. "The job I have now enables me to be around baseball. You have no idea how strange it feels to be around it, so close to it, and yet not actually be a part of it." Sandy has been working at his new Job 10 weeks now and according to word in the trade he looks as if he's going to have a hot second half. Mich hotter, my- way, than his first half which was greeted with some cool reviews. "I thought those first shows were bad," Sandy owned up, with his characteristic honesty. "I was criticized for them and I felt I should becrilicized. There was one thing they got wrong, though. "Someone said anyone making $100,000 a year should do better right away. But I'm not making $100,000. I can't get people to believe that. They read that I make $100,000 somewhere and now they all believe it. I work on a fee basis." Dick Auerbach, producer of Koufax' sports show, feels Sandy is coming along well, a little ahead of schedule, in fact. "I had my own time-table for him," said Auerbach. "I knew it would take him awhile getting accustomed to the cameras, the microphone and interviewing guests. I felt by July or August he'd be comfortable, and I think he is already. I think he's gonna be beautiful." That's pure producer talk. The next point Auerbach made was not. He spoke about how Sandy had tip-toed carefully in his first interviews last April as if he were walking on egg-shells and how he took much surer steps during last week's show which emanated from Minnesota. "He had no qualms at all asking Harmon Killebrew about the firing of Sam Mete and about any dissension on the team," said the producer. "I thought he handled it fine. We all know Sandy'11 never cut up anybody. I feel he'll do all right in spile of it." Cornell Defends U.S. Prestige HENLEY-ON-THAMES, England (t'PI)--Cornell University's talented crew hoped to salvage some prestige for the United States today following a disastrous showing by the Americans in Thursday's Henley Royal Regatta. Cornell, entered in the Thames Cup for Eights, was matched against Crowland in today's semifinals. The Big Red stood an excellent chance of reaching the finals in this event, making up for the ousting of the L'.S. in the Grand Challenge Cup, The tniversity of Wisconsin, America's choice for victory In the Grand Challenge Cup, suffered a humiliating loss to Oxford University Thursday as the British swept four of seven duels with U.S. shells during first and second round competition. Oxford used a blistering start to outstroke Wisconsin by one and three-quarter lengths and led all the way. Other British victories were accomplished by Trinity College, Cambridge, over Marietta (Ohio) College in the Ladies' Plate, the London Rowing Club over Groton (Mass.) in the Prince Philip Cup and University College School over Groton in the Princess Elizabeth Challenge Cup. A m e r i c a n triumphs were turned in by Cornell over Durham University in the Thames Challenge Cup, Tabor Academy of Mation, Mass., over Radley College in the Princess Elizabeth and Kent School (Conn.) over Shrewsbury in the Princess Elizabeth, Tabor Academy met Nautical College today while Kent went against Westminster School. Both American crews were favored in the event for schoolboy eights. By United Press International Bob Gibson and Don Drysdale needn't go to Anaheim to see the stars. They saw enough Thursday night to last a lifetime. Their sudden interest in astronomy was fostered by the San Francisco Giants and the Cincinnati Reds, respectively, who lowered the boom on the big righthanders with such swiftness and force that Gibson and Drysdale lapsed into a state of shock. The ill-timed drubbings look place on the eve of their selection to the National League pitching staff for the All-Star game July 11 at Anaheim and left NL manager Waller Alston, the skipper of the Dodgers, with a slight trace ot egg on his face. Gibson, the ace of the league- leading St. Louis Cardinals was raked for nine runs and seven hits in two-thirds of an inning while the Giants rolled an 11- rim first inning en route to a 124, Drysdale lasted all of 1 1-3 innings, yielding seven liits and six runs as (he Reds posted a 14-0 triumph. The loss sliced the Cards' first-place lead to 1 1-2 games over the surging Chicago Cubs, who edged the Pittsburgh Pirates 4-3 in an afternoon contest. Philadelphia blanked New York 1-0 and the scheduled game between Atlanta and Houston was rained out. Gibson, who entered the game with a 9-5 record, never got out of the first inning and was down seven runs before he even retired a baiter. Four consecutive singles, an intentional walk, another single, a triple by Hal Lanier and a si?lh single produced seven ruiu, before Gibson fanned pitcher Joe Gibbon and retired leadotf batter Jim Davenport. But he was mercifully yanked after walking Tom Haller and Willie Mays greeted reliever Nelson Briles with his second run-scoring single of the stanza. Jim Hart, who had singled in a run earlier, then drove a three- run homer into the left field bleachers to complete the wild inning. Drysdale, whose All-Star de. signation was his seventh, surrendered two runs in the first and five more during a six- run second in which the Keds sent 11 batters to the plate. His pitching managed to snap Cincinnati out of a four-game losing streak as the Dodgers' win skein ended at five. Tony Perez, Don Pavletich and Deron Johnson homered off relief pitchers and drove in three runs apiece as the Reds launched an 18-hit assault to back the five hit pitching of Milt Pappas, now 8-6. The loss was the eighth for Drysdale against seven wins. Jim Dunning, a seven-time selection who failed to make the squad this time around, was an All-Star against the Mets, their 10th victory in the last 11 games and handed the Pirates their fifth straight loss with the aid of Ernie Banks' 15th homer, a two-run shot in the sixth that enabled him to equal his ontire 1966 output. Dick Radatz, Cal Koonce and Chuck Hartenstein all worked in relief of starter Joe Nlekrp, who won his third game in five decisions. Mack Jones had driven in four runs with a double and three-tun homer to give Atlanta a 5-1 lead in the fourth before rain washed out the Braves- Astros contest. Despite the fact that the Baltimore Oriole pitching staff has come up with several sore wings this season, it has managed to hatch one of the brightest young stars in the American League. Twenfy-five-year-old Tom Phoebus, who has become the mainstay ot the crippled Oriole staff, won his seventh game of the year Thursday night by limiting the league-leading Chicago White Sox to just three hits as Baltimore registered a 41 victory. Phoebus, who was born and raised In Baltimore, has not been a complete suprise to the Orioles in 1961. The rookie righthander came up from the International League last September and shut out the Angels and the A's in his first two major league starts. With Steve Barber on the disabled list at the time, the Orioles requested permission to use Phoebus in the World Series. But the National League champions, the Los Angeles Dodgers, refused. As it turned out, Moe Drabowsky, Dave McNally, Wally Bunker and Jim Palmer handled the situation with the greatest of ease by knocking off the Dodgers in four straight. But this season things aren't so rosy for the Birds. Barber has again run Into arm trouble and has been erratic in most of tjis'. appearances; Bunker has ,.seen little action because of his sore right shoulder. Palmer, who won the final game of the 1966 Series, has teen sent to the minors to cure his arm problem and Dave McNally has recently been put on the disabled list. Phoebus already has racked up three shutouts, all coming in succession, and has allowed thu opposition only one run in three of his other wins. In the only other American League game Thursday night, Cleveland downed Detroit 5-3. Phoebus had brilliant control while chalking up 11 strikeouts and not allowing a walk. After he gave up a second inning home run to Ken Berry, the Oriole righthander retired 23 of the last 24 White Sox to face him. Balti- with his fifth home run of the year off loser Jim O'Toole In the first Snyder accounted .4 20' Wf/MEft //f'964 t {.00X5 Yank Tries Upset Role W I M B L E D O N , England (t'Pl) - Clark Graebner of Beachwood, Ohio, hoped to take his place among the spolers today when he faced third- seeded John Newcomle of Australia with a berth in the quarter-finals at stake in the Wimbledon tennis championships. One seeded player has been eliminated in the men's singles on each of the first four days of competition and Graebner was ripe to continue the string. The third-ranking player in the United States had yet to drop a set all week and on Thursday he routed Jose Edison Mandarino of Brazil, 6-3, G-3, 11-9. The only other American to gain the round of 16 was Charlie Pasarell of Santurce, P.F., who advanced Thursday with an easy 6-1, 6-3, 6-1 decision over Canada's Frank Tutvin. Pasarell, who started thf upset parade by ousting defending champion Manuel Sanlana of Spain on opening day, had a day off today before going against Brazilian Thomas Koch on Saturday. HISTORY AGAINST GOLFER Hammer Heads The L'.S. had a rich reserve still In contention in the women's singles with seven girls safely past the third round. This contingent was led by top- seeded BilHe Jean King of Alhambra, Calif., the No. 1 ranking player in the States, and Nancy Richey of San Angelo, Tex., ranked second. Mrs. King was expected to have an easy round today against Elsie Ventjer-Spruyt of the Netherlands who had yet to wield a racket following a bye and a forfeit, while Miss Richey, seeded fifth was favored over Russia's Anna Dmitrieva. Other pairings involving U.S. girls today were Mary Ann Elsel of St. Louis vs. Cecilia Martinez of San Francisco and Kathy Harter of Seal Beach Calif., vs. Eda Buding of Germany. Rosemary Casals of San Francisco was off today prior to meeting second-seeded Maria Bueno of Brazil on Saturday. Also idle was Stephanie DeFina of Hollywood, Calif., who was highly impressive in beating Australia's Karen Krantzcke, 60, 8-6, Thursday. Three U.S. players, including two members of the Davis Cup team, were knocked out of men's singlesplayThursday. Cliff Richey of San Angelo, MONTREAL (t'Pl)-Laurie Hammer, hoping for a $30,000 payoff Sunday, carried a one- shot lead into the second round of the $200,000 Canadian Open today, but history is all against him. The tail (6-5, 205-pound) second year Sarasota, Fla., blonde golfer solved the Montreal Municipal course with a combination of five birdies and 13 pars for a 66 Thursday, Despite his "best round ofthe Sandra Cards Tourney Record HOT. : , SPRINGS, Va.
