Howard Is in Chipper Mood NEW YORK (AP) — Elston Howard, the New York Yankees All-Star catcher, was in a chipper mood today following his release from the hospital after surgery for the removal of bone chips from his right elbow.

It had been expected that Howard, who priginally hurt the arm during an exhibition game in Puerto Rico and then re-injured it in the opening game of the season in Minnesota, would be out until June 15.

He said the injury looked as though the boxer had been in an auto crash. Banks had no record of previous head injury through boxing, although he had suffered four knockouts in 27 fights. He had won 16 of his fights with knockouts and six others with decisions. Banks worked at a Ford Motor Co. plant in Detroit. Pennsylvania State Athletic Commissioner Frank Wildman said earlier no investigation of the fight was planned. "Both Banks and Martin were in excellent condition; the bout was conducted in the proper manner; the referee was alert; nothing occurred before the knockout to suggest any lack of care or supervision," said Wildman. Martin could not immediately be reached for comment. Banks' death was the second boxing fatality of 1965. A 17- year-old novice boxer, Jerry Como, died Jan. 14 in a Youngstown, Ohio hospital, after collapsing during a Golden Gloves bout. The coroner ruled that the high school senior's death was caused by a heart condition and not from a blow. Como's heart stopped briefly after he had dropped to the can- vus in the fight doctors restarted Jan. 12, it. They but cut open his windpipe to aid breathing and used a heart machine to help maintain heart action. The youth died without regaining consciousness. The last previous boxins death recorded in this country was that of Forest Wright of Flint, Mich., on Jan. 20, 1964, also in a Golden Gloves tournament. There were 15 deaths in the ring in 1964. Martin, a 182-pounder, ''gave away" 23 pounds to Banks. He won the first four rounds, lost the next four and was behind in the first few minutes of the ninth, according to ring writers. The knockout punch hit Banks on the left temple. He sank to the floor near his corner. First his legs caved in and then his trunk followed. Finally he hit his head on the floor in front of one of the judges. His arms flaired outward. . Most boxing fatalities and se rious injuries have been traced to blood clots of the brain. Benny (Kid) Paret suffered a clot when he was fatally injured two years ago in a bout with Emile Griffith. Ted Ewald, of Grosse Point, Mich., Banks' manager, sale the Negro fighter had never suffered serious injury in a bout before. In his last fight at Houston, Tex., July 21, 1964, he was knocked out in the sixth round by Cleveland Williams. "He ran out of gas and took the count on one knee," said Ewald. "We handled this boy because he's a fine character, and we thought he had fine prospects,' Ewald had said earlier. Ewald. said the fighter, at 207 pounds, was in good shape. "He had boxed at 200 pounds before but we thought he was too light at that weight, and we felt he would be better with the added poundage." In one of his fights, Banks had floored heavyweight champion Cassius Clay before Clay knocked him out. Aguirre to Seek His 4th Straight Victory Tonight WASHINGTON (AP) — Left- hander Hank Aguirre, who in ;en years in the majors has a 3-6 record against Washington jatters, is scheduled to start on the mound for the Detroit Tigers tonight against the eighth place Nats. A repeat performance by slugging left fielder Willie Horton could give Aguirre his fourth victory against no defeats. In the fourth inning of the Tiger's 5-2 defeat of Washington Wednesday night Horton poled his fifth home run of the year, 400 feet into the left field bull pen. The long ball is getting to be a habit for the muscular right- liander. His four previous blasts have gone for 465, 400, 440 and 420 feet. Horton didn't seem to care that his fourth inning clout was the winning run. He added two singles, one in the second and one in the eighth scoring Al Kaline with the Tiger's last run. Joe Sparma started on the mound for Detroit, going seven innings and nailing down his first victory against one loss. The Senators entered the run column" in their half of the fifth inning when Ed Brinkman scored on Ken McMullen's fly to right field. Frank Howard singled to center in the Senator ninth, scoring Don Blasingame with the Nats' final tally. The Tiger celebration over their 13th victory was heightened with the news that Manager Charlie Dressen will rejoin the club when it returns to Detroit Sunday. Dressen has been in California recuperating from a heart attack since the late days of spring training. General M a n ag er James Campbell said Dressen had planned to join the team in Washington, but decided to wait until Sunday. "He won't be in uniform," Campbell said. "He'll just be watching things for a week or ten days." The Tigers will round out a three-game series against the Senators here tonight then move to Boston for three against the Red Sox Friday, .Saturday and Sunday. AB .... 4 Lumpe ph 0 DETROIT Wood 2b .

The new team is Cramblit's Bar of Ironwood Taking a quick look at how the league stacks up this season, last year's last place finishers, Cossie's Bar is reported to be in fine shape with some new faces on the squad and manager Mickey Cossie expects to reverse last year's final standings. Finishing in seventh place after last summer's session was Poor Joe's but a switch in the manager's spot is expected to put some new life into that unit. Holding down sixth place was Anvil Tavern and after spring practice the squad, according to manager Gene Milewski, is in fine condition and should be in the running for the league title. Mickey's Bar, which has dropped from the league, finished in fifth place last season and Cramblit's, the team replacing Mickey's on the league's roster, is expected to field a strong squad. Manager Rudy Massie of the fourth-place Last East Young Club is also in a confident state of mind as the opening night draws near and hopes his team will be a strong contender for the coveted title. The appearance of some new faces on the Fiori's Bosch Brewers club is a hopeful sign to manager Dick Massie, as he tries to bring his team up from the third place finish last season into first place this year. Second-place finishers; the Last East Old Timers, will also have hopes of a league championship and manager Stan Servia will say only that the team will have no new faces but he plans to shake up the old players to step up a notch in the league standings. The top spot in the league last season went to the Spruce Haven Wildcats and over the winter the club has moved to Bessemer and is now known as White Birch Inn. Manager Al Sally reminds the rest of the league that only the name of the team has changed and the club will return to play this season with confidence of taking the title again. As always it looks like another exciting season in the Bessemer Slow-Pitch Softball League and the league members urge a 11 fans to come out and see their favorite team play. Texaco 5th in U. P.
