Bowl. fair tease, sve will go lo Miami The path south apparently was ctenred last Thursday when AFL Commissioner Joe Foss met with city officials and worked out verbally a long term agreement for the use of the Orange Bowl. But the final contract must be drawn up with the! new franchise holder. I Besides reaching formal I agreement on a contract for use of the stadium, the group awarded the franchise will have to pay the league in the neighborhood of $7.5 million. It is known, however, that there still is opposition in some AFL quarters toward the projected move to Miami and Woodard pointed out that "there is nothing assured. It still takes | a three-quarters vote of the i owners to do anything.

Brown Takes Stand Today CLEVELAND, Ohio (AP) — Pro football star Jim Brown is expected to "categorically" deny from the witness stand today all charges brought against him by an 18-year-old girl, according to one of Brown's attorneys. The attorney, Norman Minor, said after Tuesday's session he plans to call as a defense witness Paula White, the 18-year- old girl who introduced Brown's accuser to him at the White home May 12. Brenda Ayres, 18, has accused the 230-pound Cleveland Browns' fullback, of beating her In a motel room the night of June 19 and forcing her into sexual acts. The 29-year-old Brown, married and the father of three, has pleaded innocent to the assault and battery charge. A mother and her 14-year-old daughter testified Tuesday for the defense that they saw no marks on the face of Miss Ayres about 12 hours after Miss Ayres claims Brown slapped her around. The testimony came from Mrs. Audrey White, who handles Brown's fan mall and is Paula's mother, and Darnella recommendations of his own. White, 14, Paula's sister. Detroit Blanks Senators by 2-0 By BERNIE KENNEDY Associated Press Sports Wirtcr DETROIT (AP) — Detroit pitcher Dave Wickersham said Manager Charlie Dressen's faith in him helped him endure his 97-tiay wait between pitching victories for the Tigers this season. Wickersham, a 19-game winner last year, limited the Washington Senators to four singles in a 2-0 triumph Tuesday night. "I've got to give Dressen a lot of credit for hanging in there with me." Wickersham said. "I i'eally think I pitched well all season but our guys just weren't getting the breaks," Wickersham explained. "Every- tlme someone got the thick part of the bat on the ball, it would be hit right to someone." Wickersham defeated the Minnesota Twins in his first start beck on April 15. * * * He nad 13 starting assignments since, but never could get his second victory and carried the eight-game losing streak into the game against the Senators. "I remember saying back in spring training that I would be happy to win just five games if this club would win the pennant, ' Wickersham recalled. "Believe me, I was beginning to wonder if I would ever reach that figure. I've still got a long way to go." Wickersham got all the runs he needed in the fourth inning when Willie Horton hit his 21st home run following a walk to Al Kaline The homer, off Washington loser Howie Koplitz, hit the second der.k s screen in front of the bleachers s in left-center. "That's the nicest home run I've seen this year," Wickersham beamed. "I saw a couple of nice ones that (Don Demeter hit last year. "You know," Wickersham added as an afterthought, "it sure Is nice to see the reporters at this end of the clubhouse again." Dressen, who has not started Wickersham since he lost on July 4, said he couldn't think of a better time for the tall right- hander to get back on the beam. "We're coming to a part of our schedule where it is going to be a lot easier to work with five starters than with four," Dressen said. * * *• "The big difference in Wickersham today was that he was throwing strikes and they had to swing." During the Ail-Star break, coach Bob Swift continued the drills started by Dressen to get Wickersham to work on his slider. Wickersham and a few other Tigers drilled on the day of the All-star game. "Koplitz pitched a good game out there," Wickersham said "It was a tough one for him to lose. I was getting to be somewhat of an expert on tough losses." Washington posed only two scoring threats in the game. Don Blasingame singled and took second on Demeter's error In the fourth but never got any further. In the seventh, Frank Howard singled with one away and Dick Nen got the second, and last walk issued by Wickersham. But Ken McMullen popped put and Don Lock became Wick- ersharn's seventh strikeout vic- tin and the threat was over. Two other would-be Detroit rallies were squelched when Al Kaline and Norm Cash lined into double plays. The Tigers were scheduled to play nost to the Cleveland Indians in a twi-night cloublehead- i er today.

Blitzen Sails To Easy Victory MACKINAC ISLAND, Mich. (AP) — in her 28 seasons"bh the Great Lakes,. -the Milwaukee cutter Blitzen has taken many a sailing race trophy. The 56-footer, co-skippered by brothers Bill and Tom Schoendorf, picked off another Tuesday in capturing the 58th annual Chicago to classic. Blitzen, leader for almost the entire 333 miles from Chicago to the Straits of Macklnac finish line, came in with more than a two-hour margin over the best of her 114 rivals. Because of almost constant winds, Tom Schoendorf said the Blitzen had the "very unusual" experience of needing no change in sails until almost the very Lake Michigan. Blitzen, well in the lead changed for the first time in the vicinity of the Straits Bridge, seven miles from the finish. Then, with the race won, she sat in the water or an hour and "watched the cars go by" while waiting for other boats to appear, Schoendorf said. Blitzen's elapsed time of 606 hours, 49 minutes and 50 seconds was about average for the race. Her corrected time was 58:02.52. The Gypsy, Milwaukee sloop owned and skippered by Charles Kotovich, was given second place on corrected time of 60:12.40 as against the 62:17.08 of the scratch boat Mitena, syndicate-owned Macatawa, Mich., sloop. Gypsy's elapsed time was 64:14.12.

Hurler Qualifies As Big Mystery By HAL BOCK Associated Press Sports Writer You've heard of 90-day wonders. Well, Detroit's Dave Wickersham qualifies as a 97-day mystery. Wickersham pitched a neat four-hitter beating Washington 2-0 on Willie Horton's 21st homer of the season Tuesday night. It was the kind of performance Tiger Manager Chuck Dressen had come to expect of the young right-hander last season when he called him "the best pitcher I've got." Wickersham was all that and more, winning 19 games for Detroit against 12 losses in 1964 Then in spring training, Dave made an off-the-cuff remark that seemed to leave him jlnxed this year. He said he'd be happy to win just five games if the Tigers would win the pennant. After beating Minnesota 6-4 on April 15, Wickersham started 13 more games before finally winning another game. It was 97 days of futility The shutout left Wickersham with a 2-8 mark and lowered his inflated earned run average from 4.98 to 4.54. It was his first shutout since he pitched 10 innings of an 11-inning 1-0 victory over the Yankees June 26, 1964. Elsewhere In the American League, Baltimore clipped Cleveland 6-1, New York topped Boston 6-3 and Los Angeles walloped Minnesota 9-1. in the Na- .tional League, Milwaukee trounced New York 7-1, St. Louis edged Philadelphia 4-3, Pittsburgh topped Cincinnati 8' 6, San Francisco blanked Chicago 2-0 and Los Angeles edged Houston 3-2. Russ Snyder and Boog Powell whacked two-run homers giving the Orioles their first victory over the Indians in six tries at Cleveland. Dave McNally pitched the six-hitter with Chuck Hlnton's 10th homer of the year in the ninth inning spoiling the shutout. Mel Stottlemyre won his 10th game of the year for New York and belted an inside-the-park grand slam homer in the fifth inning to provide most of the Yankee runs. New York had loaded the bases on two walks and an infield hit against Boston starter Bill Monbouquette when stottle; myre connected, Tony Koubek also homered for New York. Bobby Knoop's four hits paced a 15-hit Los Angeles attack that buried Minnesota. Knoop drove in three runs as Marcelino Lopez coasted to his 10th victory of the year with a four-hitter. Willie Smith homered for the Angels Broncos Sideline Matt Snorton for Season GOLDEN, COlO.

(AP) — As major league baseball deals go, it was a minor transaction, but it was anything but minor to the two utility players involved, Gary Kolb and Jesse Gonder. Kolb 25, an outfielder who can also play any infield position and catch, had to fight back the tears in the Milwaukee dressing room Tuesday. He had just learned he had been sold to the last place New York Mets in a deal that sent Gonder, ?9, a catcher, on waivers to the Braves "I think this club has a real good, shot at the pennant," said Kolb after getting the news from Braves' Manager Bobby Bragan. "At this time of the year It's tough leaving them." ' The third-place Braves had just wor their eighth straight game, defeating the Mets 7-1. It was the 10th straight loss for the Mets. Neither Gonder nor Kolb saw action in their last game for their old. teams, although both were in uniform. Kolb had been traded once before. The St. Louis Cardinals sent him to Milwaukee in exchange for catcher Bob Uecker prior to the 1964 season. "Maybe they are trying to tell me something," Kolb commented on the rueful personal prospect of being traded off a potential pennant-winning team for the second straight season. The Cardinals won the pennant last year. The Braves are hoping Gonder will come through as a pinch hitter and the left-handed hitting Gonder is hoping the Braves will win the pennant. 3'/ 2 5 5'/2 7% 9vil TROUBLE can sneak up en you I B« prepared withB planned, adequate iniUrihce program 234 E.
