Main Street see Arnie Weber Bill Huff By NORMAN MILLER UPI Sports Writer Paul Richards, one of baseball's better brains, moaned last Octo ber that he was being offered a lot of humpties for organizing his Houston Colts, but these same derelicts are making him and manager Harry Craft look like a pair of geniuses. There were many experts who took Richards at his word and consigned the Cols to the Nation al League cellar this season. It's still early, of course, but the Colts have looked mighty re : spectable so far, and projecting their present 10-13 record through a 162-game schedule, they would wind up with 70 victories. Bob Aspromonte, John Weekly aniJIgb Tiefenauer, three of the Colel^naligned minions,'produced like champions Monday night as Houston defeated the Los Angeles Dodgers, 9-6, in the major leagues' only game.. Puts Colts Ahead Aspromonte hit a three-run homer in the seventh inning to put the Colts ahead; Weekly connected in the eighth for an insurance run, and Tiefenauer pitched three. shutout relief innings to receive credit for his * first major league victory since 1955. Aspromonte called his homer "the greatest thrill of my life." It had a special meaning because it was hit against the Dodgers, who had cast him adrift for one of the two new clubs to grab. "This is the dream of every ballplayer, to get a hit like that against his old club," the 23-year- old third baseman beamed. "I never felt better in my life." It's been a long time between major league victories for 32-year- old Tiefenauer. Although he first had a trial in the ibig show 10 years ago, that 1955 win was his only other triumph in the majors. Four Runs Unearned The Colts went aiiead with five runs in the second inning, four of them unearned. The Dodgers committed two errors and their pitchers forced in two runs with walks. Los Angeles moved ahead, 6-5, in the sixth with three runs, knocking out Colts' starter Dave Giusti. and his successor, Al Cicotte. . Aspromonte' then hit his homer off rookie lefty Pete Richert, who was charged with the defeat. Tie­ fenauer gave up only one hit during the last three innings. Aspromonte, who had been in a slump, now has collected nine" hits in Houston's last three games. Major League Standings By United Press International American League W. L. Pet.

HOME OFFICE: 130 EAST WASHINGTON STREET '< % INDIANAPOLIS t'-'l " ^ w ' f i •* ( Frank lane Is Basketball G-M CHICAGO (UPI) — Frank C. Lane, one of baseball's greatest tradesmen, was breaking in on a new job today, how to dicker and deal in pro basketball. Lane,, general manager of four major league baseball clubs', signed Monday to run the Chica- 6 Packers of the National Basketball Association for one year. Indirectly, his contract was a greater benefit to Charles O. Finicy than to Lane. Finley fired Lane last summer as general, manager of his Kansas City Athletics, ibut under terms of his employment contract he has to pay Lane for several more years. The amount that Lane is paid, undisclosed, for running the Packers will be deducted from the amount. Finley owens, since no settlement,, was made on their .contract';'.' ! • •'^ane said,his first job with the Bellamy, the Packers' center who Bellamy, the Packers' center wto was * the NBA "Rookie of the Year" last season, for his Sophomore "campaign. "Then," he said, "I want to sign out major draft choices, Billy McGill, Terry. Dischinger, Don Nelson, and Cornell . Green. • We have some good holdover players, and we want to field the kind of team that will bring people out to pay my salary." Lane did not think he would deal in basketball players as fre-. quently as he did with baseball players when with the Chicago White Sox, where he made over 100 trades in four seasons; "There are fewer players to move around," he said, "and the colleges are our minor leagues." He. revealed that he had turned down an offer to become commissioner of the American Basketball League to. take the Packers' job. Hire And Fire- Packer . owner Dave Trager said Lane had "carte blanche" to run the club, including the right to hire and fire. However, it was unlikely that coach Jim Pollard would be bounced since Lane said he had told the Packers "any people you want to divorce, do it before you sign me." "Thereafter," he said, "I'll be guided by my judgment.' Lane, 66, once was president of the American Association before joining the White Sox. Later he was general manager of the St. Louis Cardinals and Cleveland Indians before joining Kansas' City. His only previous connection with ibasketball was as a Big Ten official prior to World War II. ON THE SIDELINES By HAM R1GG TERMITES ARE SWARMING!! 00 FREE INSPECTION See a Bug... Colli A. B.

(UPI)— Herb Score, back in the city where his promising but ill- starred pro baseball fortunes began 10 years ago, starts the third comeback of his career today with the Indianapolis Indians of the American Association. The 29-year-old - left-hander, once :. a million-dollar baseball property, was optioned to .Indianapolis by the Chicago White Sox Monday, on the fifth: anniversary of the tragic' baseball accident which nearly lost him the sight of his right eye. The White Sox said they sent him to the minors so that he might, pitch regularly and work himself back to peak form; and manager Luke Appling of the Indians promptly nominated Score to start Wednesday night's game against the Louisville Colonels. "It's no great tragedy," Score said. "I feel real good about my throwing this year and my arm feels 'fine. Al Lopez (White Sox manager) asked me if I wanted to go where I could get some -work, and I said 'Sure.' . "I feel I'll be back soon," Score added. ' > •• . "There is nothing wrong with me physically," .continued the one-time southpaw strikeout king of the American League. "This is the best I have felt in three . or four years. "I'll have a chance to work on my curve ball here. My fast ball is fairly good how." '. Score never regained his early pitching effectiveness after being the right eye by a line drive from the bat of Gil McDougald of the New York Yankees in a game at Cleveland on May 7, 1957. . A 20-game winner for Cleveland in 1956 and the American League strikeout ."' champion - with 263, Score was sidelined for the remainder, of the 1957 season following his accident. Owens Signed As Colt End BALTIMORE, Ud. (UPI)—R.C. (Alley Oop) Owens, one of the National .Football League's leading ends, had his choice of play : ing with. any of 31 professional clubs next season and he cast his lot - with the Baltimore Colts.. . Owens, dissatisfied with his salary arrangements with the San Francisco Forty Niners, played out his contractual option last season and • became a free agent May 1. He had played five seasons with the Forty' Niners. . The six-foot-three, 195-pound flanker-end ,might have signed with any club in the NFL, the American Football League or the Canadian League. The Oakland Raiders.and the New York Titans of the -AFL, as well as. several Canadian teams, made overtures for his services.' But Owens, chose to play for the Colts. He. secretly came to tdwn Monday, and signed his contract. It was believed to call for less than the $25,000 he reportedly had demanded of the Forty Niners. ' The addition of Owens gives the Colts and quarterback Johnny Unitas one of the most impressive pass-catching corps in the NFL. Three, other standouts are Lenny Moore, Ray Berry and Jimmy Orr. According to NFL rules, when a player, chooses to sever his*con? hections with a club, he can noti* fy the management before the start of a season that he is playing out the one-year option in his contract. He must play that season, at 90 -per cent of his old salary and then is declared a free agent. •'. . •' . The r27-year-old Owens, nicknamed"^"Alley Oop" 4>y San iFran? cisco fans because of his spectacular pass-catching leaps, grabbed 55 -passes for a total of 1,032 yards and 5 touchdowns last season, i During his five-year NFL career, Owens caught a total of 176 passes for 2,926 yards and 20 touchdowns. , He is a graduate of College of Idaho, where he once played football and basketball. He. now lives in Belmont,: Calif., with his wife and three-year-old daughter.

By OSCAR FRALEY UPI Sports Writer NEW YORK (UPI) — A nag named Kamal Bey bounced down on top a year back at Laurel and paid $352 for every deuce on its lightly regarded nose but it can be said today that such shennani- gahs will not occur in the U.S. Open golf championship. A field of 150 — survivors of an original sectional list of some 2,475 hopefuls — will tee off at Oakmont, Pa., near Pittsburgh, June 14 in the -three-day chase for the top U. S. fairway. prize. Most of them are just along for the ride. . Because in the last quarter-century there hasn't been a- Kamal Bey on the premises. The nearest winners to a long- shot since golf moved into the big business brackets were such pros as Ed Furgol, Jack Fleck and Dick Mayer. But these were hard-working tournament-sharpened veterans who, although not as well known at the moment to some, were highly regarded by their fellow competitors. "When you come up to a tournament like the Open, where your nerves have to be as sharp as . your game,'' says Furgol, "there are no more than 25 players who have a chance of winning.'' Some "Outsider" may come close, yes. But no cigar. Completes Open "Book" And, in carrying out the racing theme, as well as agreeing in effect with Furgol's. analysis, Howard Gill of Golf Digest has come up with a "scratch sheet" for the' Open which sets the odds for the most threatening 25. At 6 to 1, the-favorite as might be expected is none 'other than Arnold Palmer. * Quoted at 7 to 1 are defending champion Gene Littler and ever- threatening Doug Sanders. The % rest of the "book" goes like this: At 8 to 1: Tommy Bolt, Jack Nicklaus,—Garr: rPIayer. and Bob Goalby. \ At 10 to 1: Jay Hebert . Bob Rosburg, Don January and young Phil Rodgers. At 12 to 1: Bill Casper, Art Wall and Doug Ford. At 15 to 1: Mike Souchak, Joe Campbell, four-time winner Ben Hogan .and four-time second Sam Snead. At 17 to 1: Jerry Barber, Billy Maxwell, Johnny Pott and Jackie Cupit. And, at 20 to 1: Don Fairfield, Gardner Dickinson and Dow Finsterwald. Gambling Game Golf is a gambling game and, if the truth were known, probably gets more total, wagering in the course of a year than any other competitive sport. The stakes in some foursomes are staggering and even the pros, all of them scratch players, are not adverse to giving each other "shots" when the situation arises. Looking over Gill's top 25, you've got to' think that the winner must come from this group. There isn't a one in there who can give . shots to any of the others. Palmer rules the favorite on a " hot. hand and, with the Masters in the bag, is driving all out for his 'fbig slam" of the Open, British Open and PQA. On a "finesse" course such as Oakmont, .the biggest threats against' him would seem to be Littler, Sanders, Sanders, Player. Bolt, Hebert, Casper, Wall and Finsterwald. But you can take this 25 and give odds against the remaining 125 who will tee off against ,them. • _ SCHOOL HONORS MOON HOUSTON (UPI)— Dodger outfielder Wally Moon, who played college baseball at Texas A&M, has been honored by his alma, mater with an annual baseball award in his name to be presented to the outstanding baseball player at the school.
