A light-hitting learn which gets by on pitching and good base running, the White Sox have been "winning with mirrors" as the old-saying goes yet have been firmly entrenched in first place in the American League since May 15. Give the White Sox one little break and you end up on the short end ol a one-run ball game, and those are the kind that separate pennant winners from also-rans. The Minnesota twins, who to mate a serious run at first place, became victims of the White Sox' magic Friday night when they kicked away what looked to be a 1.0 victory in the ninth inning on an error by their usually reliable shortstop, Zoilo Versalles. Dean Chance seemingly had Chicago blanked on live hits as he retired the first batter to face him in the ninth. But then trouble started as Tom McCraw singled and Chance walked plncMiltter Jim King and J.C. Martin in succession to load the bases. A! Worthington was sum- moned from the bullpen to quell the rally and succeeded in retiring Don Buford on a pop fly for the second out. Ron Ilansen was the next batter and smacked a grounder to Versalles' left, which the smooth fielding shortstop got his glove on but could not come up with. By the time he recovered and threw to first it was loo late, as both McCraw and pinch-runner Buddy Bradford had crossed the plate giving the White Sox a 2-1 victory.

(UPI)Steady Rod Funselh had the undisputed lead today in the $100,000 "500" Festival Open golf tourney, but R.H.

With two rounds to go today and Sunday for (lie $SO,OOOfirsl- prize paycheck, Funseth was seven tinder par with a 137 for 36 holes, with Sikes and Littler breathing down his neck at 139 and Beard trailing them by just two more strokes. Funseth, Spokane, Wash., whose only previous tour victory was at Phoenix two years ago, added a twounder- par 70 Friday to an opening round of 67. Sikes, co-leader with Funseth after the opening round, slipped to an even par 72 while Littler's 68 tied the best round Friday over the long- playing speedway course. Scores of 151 or better, the second highest in a year, were good enough to make the cutoff at the halfway mark of the 72. hole tourney, but three former winners here failed to make the field of 81-two-lime champ Doug Ford, Dow Finslerwald and Bruce Crampton, who won two years ago. There was nothing spectacular Friday about Funseth's play, but the pressure of being co-leader didn't show as he posted four birdies against two bogeys for his second straight sub-par round.

With Heisman Trophy winner Steve Spurrier ol Florida and Heisman runnerup Bob Oriese of Purdue sharing the quarterback role, the East can be expected to mount a fierce air attack on a dry field. But rain could even the odds since the West has the bigger line and a more potent inside running attack. Game lime is 9:30 p.m. EOT Cards Add Players ST. LOUIS (DPI)-the St. Louis Cardinals Friday signed catcher Bob Bonalewicz ol Fall River, Mass., first baseman Glenn Marshall of Los Angeles and shortstop Gene Fowler of St. Louis. The three were assigned to the Cardinals' Sarasola, Fla., faim club. to accommodate national televi- . sion (ABC).

Gene Washington, Michigan State's sensational pass receiver will be at split end for the East while the defense will feature George Webster of Michigan State and Jim Lynch of Noire Dame at linebackers. The West backfield will include quarterback Jon Brittenum of Arkansas, tailback Mel Farr of UCLA, flanker Rod Sherman of Southern Cal and .Phillips, the Arkansas All- America. The East is favored by a touchdown but East Coach Tom Cahill of Army cautioned his team against taking the West lightly. "They may not have as many people who attracted the headlines last fall, but they've got a strong, well-balanced squad," Cahill said. Both Cahill and West Coach Bob Devaney plan to emphasize passing but loth will have their teams run often enough to keep the defenses honest.
