Tatum and Paige were in St. Petersburg to appear with the Harlem Stars in a baseball exhibition w ith the Kansas City Monarchs at Campbell Field. Satch Shelled, Goose Scarce At Campbell Old Satchel Paige allowed six hits over two innings and Goose Tatum made one brief appearance as the Kansas City Monarchs defeated the Harlem Stars 12-9 in an American Negro League baseball game at Campbell Park yesterday afternoon. By the time the Stars and Monarchs had finished their three-hour-plus marathon, the crowd estimated at 300 was glad to see their own St. Petersburg Braves take the field. THE BRAVES beat Tampa's Pepsi-Cola Giants 2-1 behind the fine pitching of Freddie Wise. It was a tough day for the promoters and the fans t pressed their disapproval of the Stars-Monarch game throughout. Tatum, a basketball clown try ing baseball, came out of the dugout only once to place a firecracker behind the plate um pire. PAIGE, onetime famous pitch er for the St. Louis Browns and Cleveland Indians, who admits to be 47 years old but is more like 67, showed that old familiar shuffle when he took the mound. But in nis prime it was a cocky shuffle. Yesterday it was because of old age.

C.'s fab ulous squad of world record bus ters climaxed the National Men's Outdoor Swimming Championships yesterday by smashing the world standard for the 400-meter medley relay. The victory in the final event of the three-day meet in the 50-meter Waterworks Pool, gave the defending team champions their seventh title and 124 points. IN ALL, five world records were eclipsed in a tank not rated fast because of choppy water at times, and one record was tied. Eight American marks fell and another was tied. Ten meet records were erased. The great Indianapolis quartet, which included three world record holders in backstroker Tom Stock, breaststroker Chet Jas-tremski, and butterfly specialist Fred Schmidt, was timed in 4:01.6 as they raced to a five-meters margin over the North Jersey S. A. Pete Smtz swam the crawl in the anchor for the winners and more than held his own. The Hoosiers' time bettered their own mark of 4:03.0 set in the nationals in Los Angeles last Aug. 2. THIS GAVE STOCK and Jas tremski three gold medals each, In . the first two days Stock set world records in capturing the 100 and 200-meter backstroke ti ties. Jastremski copped both the 100 and 200-meter breaststroke crowns. He holds the world rec ords for both distances. They were Joined in the dou ble individual winning group yesterday by Murray Rose, the Olympic king from Australia and the Los Angeles A. C, and Ted Stickles, another Indianapolis A. C. star. Steve Jackman, the indoor and college champion from Minnesota, won the 100-me ter freestyle in a thriller. Rose, the 23-year-old veteran who is rated a master strategist in the tank, shattered his sec ond American record in adding the 1500-meter freestyle crown to his 400-meter victory. He broke open a tight struggle with de fending champion Roy Saan, 17, of El Segundo, Calif., in the last 200 meters and scored by 25 meters in 17:16.7 over the school boy whiz. THE TIME BETTERED Saari's American record of 17:21.8. Stickles, who disclosed he has been swimming since last Jan uary with a bone chip in his left elbow, captured the 200-meter m dividual medley in 2:16.2. This compares with his American mark of 2:15.9, which is the fastest ever for the event. The dis tance is not recognized for world record purposes. He beat out teammate Jastremski, second in 2:17.3. Jastremski was high man of the meet with 19 points. Stickles, an Indiana junior, said his left arm will be placed in a cast today. SOUTHAMPTON, N.Y. 11- Fred Stolle, the top-seeded Australian, yesterday swept, to his second straight singles title on the grass-court circuit with a 7-5, 6-2, 8-6 victory over Whitney Reed in the 74th Meadow- Club Invitation Tennis Tournament. STOLLE, who took the eastern grass-court championship last week, is the fourth Australian winner here in the past seven years. Roy Emerson won in 1956 and 1957 and Rod Laver, the current Wimbledon champion, won in i960. Reed, the top-ranking U.S. player from Alameda, Calif., battled as best he could against the lanky Aussie, But Stolle's scorching serve proved to be virtually unbreakable in the 82- minute match. He lost his serve only twice, both in the first set, REED, WHO HAS been in a slump all year, appeared to be in command of his touch shots early in the match. He broke Stolle's serve in the second game on a back-hand passing shot for a 2-0 lead, but the 23- year-old Australian broke back in the next game. At 5-4 in the first set, Stolle needed only to hold his serve for the set, but Reed broke him to love when Stolle dumped a fore hand volley into the net. Stolle however, immediately broke Reed's service and then held his own to run out the set. During the first set, both players were bothered by the buzz of a movie camera. When Stolle lost his serve in the 10th game, he asked that the cameraman be removed. Sf.

Emile Griffith, the world welterweight king, also will make an appearance this week in Ta-coma, Wash., Saturday night, but his crown will not be at stake in his 10-round match with Denny Moyer of Portland, Ore. Their nationally televised bout (ABC) will be the athletic highlight of the National Boxing Association's convention at Ta- coma, Aug. 18-24. MOORE WILL BE meeting an inexperienced foe in Maeki, who has had only 10 pro fights and is not widely known outside his home country. It will be the fifth defense for the 29-year-old champ from Columbus, Ohio, who has a 55-6-1 record with 27 knockouts for 62 pro starts., Maeki's record is 8-1-1 with no knockouts. i The champ keeps busy touring the world for title and non-title shots. He has lost only one of his last 34 fights, suffering a knockout and a broken jaw at the hands of Carlos Hernandez in Caracas, Venezuela, March 4, I960. The promoters expect 25.-000 fans to pay $160,000 to see the Moore-Maeki bout at Olympic Stadium. Barney Ross will referee. GRIFFITH IS taking on an old foe in Denny, younger of the fighting Moyer boys from Portland. They fought twice before Griffith won the title in 1960. Each won once. Howard King, a much-traveled heavyweight from Reno, Nev. moves into Blackpool, England, Tuesday to take on battle-worn Brian London, who once fought Floyd Patterson for the world heavyweight title.

Infante, who tallied 42 points last season, is an all-purpose back described as underrated by his coaches. LARRY LIBERTORE, a 138- pound sensation as a sophomore, slipped badly last year when in juries plagued him and the line let the defenders through. He looked sharp in spring practice, and will share the quarterback post with passing ace Tom Bat ten. Bobby Dodd and Ron Stoner are defensive specialists. Bob Hoover and sophomore Jerry Newcomer look like the best bets for halfback roles on the offensive team with Hagood Clarke a defensive standby.
