(PI)—Crimson Satan, finally off the ailing list, teste his Kentky Deriby form today against Ridan and six .other derby eligibles in the $25,000 added Blue Grass Stakes at Keeneland. The Derby eligibles entered in Keeneland's traditional . closing day feature at a mile and a furlong also, incuded Roman Line, Areopois, Price Dale, Decidely, Boone County and Black Beard. One non-Derby eligible, Sunny lue farm's Imperial Point, rounded out the field of nine. Win, lose or' draw, Crimson Saten was expected to demonstrate today whether he has returned to the form that made him the two-year-old champion of 1961r The Crimson King farm hopeful suffered from a respiraory ailment in Florida, where he ran poorly, in three stakes races. Since coming back to Kentucky a month ago the Spy song colt has picked up weight, looks fine, and Wednesday worked a half mile in :45 3-5. He'll be ridden by illy Pheps. For Ridan, the question of the day was whether he can be rated to run a mie and an eighth or more. Mrs.- Moody Jolley's powerful colt was somewhat disappointing in Florida, and in New York races, but he did win the Florida Derby in mediocre time. Manny Ycaza* who . seems / to have the knack of controlling Ridan's speed, drew today's asr signment on Ridan and will have the Derby assignment also unless he prefers to ride Donut King, on which he was third in the Wood ON THE SIDELINES By HAM RIGS WHERE EVERYONE gets the BEST TIRE BUY!

Karl Bandemer of Fort Wayne South Side is line latest hoy to be so switched. Bandemer who worf both the 10O and 220 yard dashes last year as a junior in the Fort Wayne Regional, and has been down to 10- seconds flat this year in the 100 has now been shifted to 'the quarter mile and turned in a 51.9 Tuesday against Muncie Central. A switch on that is toeing pulled by Huntington's coach Jersy Young who is working .the QIC's fastest 440 boy, Van Bailey, for a trip to .the state finals in that event. Coach Young for the balance of the season will be running Van Bailey in the dashes in .an effort to concentrate on speed. But in the CIC meet a week from Friday and in the State Sectional, Regional and State Championships, Van Bailey will be back in the 440. Last year Montkello freshman, Gary Bair, who narrowly lost to Rick Pearce in the 10.3 ClC 100 yard dash, transferred to the 440 and finished third in the state finals in an excelent 49.3. Wants Meat Shifted Huntington,, by the way, is greatly perturbed over the condition of the Peru track- where next week's CIC championships are to be held/ A call from Bob Hammel of the Huntington Herald Press a few minutes ago suggested that Tipton, as the two time champion, request the meet be transferred to the fine track at Kreigbaum field in Huntington. Hammel says the CIC principalis land coaches have a meeting next Monday and the change in sites for the track championship could be voted on as an emergency measure at that meeting. He argues, and correctly, that the present condition of the Peru track is simply not fair to the boys •who may be capable of. setting new CIC records. It is not the fault of the Peru athletic department, which went to the expense of a new surfacing, but the lack of rain RALPH LEATHERMAN About this question: "A business fire less, and a safe robbery have taught me the need to be fully insured. But fire and . business interruption, .plate glass, liability and theft insurance come to quite a premium. Does your agency provide budget accounts so insurance can be paid in monthly installments?" has prevfented itne clay in the track from "taking hold" and the times of all events are going to suffer horribly unless a heavy rain occurs between now and the date of the meet. Huntington, which has a fine con' crete stadium, has sought the CIC meet for several years anyway, but each time has been rejected on the grounds that Peru was centrally located. Tipton is the school furthest from Huntington in the conference and the difference in travel is only 20 miles, which should not be an overpowering obstacle. Poor Broad Jump Another factor which makes Peru unattractive for the meet is <the condition of the broad jump facilities. The piece of plywood which serves as a take-off board in the jump is so badly chewed up by spikes that it is pathetic, on top of which the earth underneath the center. of the board has worked loose so that the board sags under the weight of the boy seeking to take off, and the runway itself looks like a footpath through a corn field. manning for such a meet- of course takes time and Peru has undoubtedly spent- some time in such planning, but Huntington volunteers that it can still adequately prepare to host the meet, and there is no question but' what Kreigbaum Field's track is in condition that the runners would have reasonable chances to establish new records in their specialties. Tipton golfers bowed Tuesday in a three school meet at Elwood, losing 9V4 to Vz to Noblesville and 8-2 to Elwood. Bob Wisehart picked up Tipton's two points against Elwood while Darst Jacobs earned the half-point against- Noblesville. . . Don Larsen Sparkles In San Francisco Win CUPS OPTION PITCHER CHICAGO (PI) — Lefthanded pitcher Morrie Steeyens, who 'appeared in four games with the Cubs this r season as a reliever, has been Optioned to the San Antonio club of the Texas League, subject to 24-hour recall. Steevens gave up three; hits in 3 1-3 innings with Chicago. SVARE SIGS CONTRACT LOS ANGELES (UPI)—Harland Svare, former linebacker and defensive coach for the New.York Giants, has signed a' contract as defensive coach with the Los Angeles Rams. Svare, a graduate of Washington State, replaces Don Paul, who resigned recently to devote full time to his San Fernando Valley restaurant. . BROWNS SIGN KREITLING CLEVELAND (UPI)—Offensive end Rich Kreitling, who- caught 21 passes for 229 yards and three touchdowns last year, has signed his 192 contract with the Cleveland- Browns. He is the second Cleveland player to sign for next season. Guard John Wooten agreed to terms last week. Whitest WHITES you ever saw! Arid at BIG * BARGAIN PRICES in the NEW 2-galldn cans.

SHARPSVILLE By MILTON RICHMAN UPI Sports Writer Better switch to another detergent if you swallowed all. those soap suds aibout big Don Larsen being all washed up. Nothing could be further from the truth. If you doubt it, ask Alvin Dark or any,of the other members of the San -Francisco Giants. They claim the unpredictable, 32-year- old Larsen has never looked better since that memorable October day in 1956 when he ^pitched the [only perfect game in wbsW Series history. Larsen, obtained in a _$J £aJ with the Chicago White Sox last December, already has won two , games for the Giants and although J he wasn't credited with Wednesday night's 8-3 victory over the first-place Pirates, -his relief performance was such that Dark had only, one word for it. "Terrific!" Recorded Eight Strikeouts Giant starter Gaylord Perry, the winner, .got into a jam'in the sixth inning when the Pirates put two men on base with none out. That was when Larsen came out of the bujlpen to 'do his stuff. He-struck ouf the next three batters on only 10 'pitches and went on to strike' out a total of eight during the four innings he worked. Orlando Cepeda took care of the Giants'. attack "by driving in four runs with a double and a home run. Ed Bailey also hom­ ered off Bob Friend, who suffered his first loss after three straight victories. The defeat for the Pirates was only their second in 13 games. Houston's battling Colts fought the St. .Louis Cardinals to a 5-5 standstill in a 17-inning struggle that was finally called because of curfew after a record five hours and 13 minutes. In other National League games, the Cincinnati Reds handed the New York Mets their lltli defeat in 12 starts, 7-1; Milwaukee beat Philadelphia, 7-2, and the Chicago Cubs cuffed the Los Angeles Dodgers, 9-6. Twins Edged Orioles The Minnesota Twins beat the Baltimore Orioles, 3-1, in the American .'League; the Los. Angeles Angels defeated the Cleveland Indians, 6-2; the New York; Yankees'rallied to beat the Chi4 cago White Sox, 7-6; the Boston Red Sox walloped the 'Washington Senators, 7 T 1, and the Kansas City A's outlasted the Detroit Tigers. 9-8. Ken Boyer's single in the ninth inning tied the score,, at .5-5 and neither the Colts nor. the Cards could break through after that. The Cardinals collected 20 hits, including a homer by Curt Flood. St. Louis reliever Ed Baua banked Houston over the last eight innings. '.•'•' The real here* of the marathon, however, was Merritt Ranew, 23- year-old. rookie catcher for the Colts. Never mind the home run -and triple he hit; but how about him catching for all 17 innings? .Bob Purkey won his third straight for the Reds with a four- hitter over the Mets:.Vada Pinson paced Cincy's 11-hit attack, with a double and two singles. Bob Miller suffered his second loss. Home Runs Pace Braves Home runs by Eddie Mathews and Joe Adcock. plus Ron Piche's four-hit pitching led the Braves to their victory over the Phillies. Mathews'- homer was his sixth of the season and Adcock*s his third. Chris. Short was the loser. Andre Rodgers of the Cubs redeemed, himself for a costly fifth inning' error by hammering a three-run homer off loser Larry Sherry in the eighth to sink. the Dodgers. Don Elston,' last of three Cub pitchers, was credited with his first victory. Ron Santo, Ernie Banks, Duke Snidef and Willie Davis.also hit homers. Jim Lemon's pinch homer with one oh and two out in the ninth snapped, a 1-1 tie between the Twins and Orioles, .wljff saw their four-game winning streak come" to : an end.. Lemon, batting for win- I ner Don Lee, connected off loser { Chuck Estrada. I Ebullient Bo Belinsky, the color| ful Angels' southpaw who promptly went out and bought himself a j snazzy new automobile after his first major league victory, is now in the market for some accessories. He won his second in-a- row with a four-hitter over the Indians Wednesday night.-Teammate Leon Wagner rates a ride in Belinsky's car for his fourth inning homer off loser Pedro Ramos. Yankees Win Nightmare The Yankees' victory over the White Sox tfas something of a nightmare for White Sox manager' Al Lopez, who saw his' team fritter away a 6-3 lead in the ninth. Luis. Aparicio started the White Sox' downfall with an error and Hector Lopez finished it with a two-run single. Roland Sheldon was the winner and Eddie Fisher, the' loser. Jim Landis aad Bill Skowron - hit homers. Gene Conley held the Senators to .five hits and also contributed a two-run homer as he registered his second win for the Red Sox; Frank Alalzone- added a three-run homer for Boston. Rookie Jim Hannan, making h i s first big league start, failed to get past the fifth inning. ' Five Detroit errors were a big factor in Kansas City's victory.' The A's led 6-0 after five innings but Jerry Walker failed to hold it even though he was credited with his third straight triumph. Rookie southpaw Doug Gallagher was the loser.
