Is he still the captain of .the San Francisco Giants? "I don't know," mutters Willie. "You'll have to ask the manager," though investigation later upturned the fact that Willie is the man who gives the umpire the daily lineup and performs the other chores which were delegated to him last year. Mays is in his 14th season as a major league outfielder. The honor of leadership should appeal to him. Alvin Dark, then the Giant manager, made him captain last spring at this time, explaining, "Baseball wouldn't have been ready for such a move a few years ago. Now it is." (Baseball, it turned out, wasn't- ready for the curiously colored world of Alvin Dark, either, which helps explain why he's now on the coaching platoon of the Chicago Cubs.) Anyhow, Willie is ultrasensi- tive about his role as elder statesman of the Giants. A Mays ball in the streets of Harlem when the formal game was over. But in San Francisco, his home base since the Giants went west in 1958, Willie's exuberance has been veiled. He is a recluse on the road.

(UPI) — Tucked away in the same barn where 1964 winner Northern Dancer was stabled a year ago, Lucky Debonair almost has become the forgotten horse of the 91st Kentucky Derby. But trainer Frank Catrone was quietly confident today that his horse would be remembered after Saturday's running of the turf classic. "I think he's got the kick that counts," said the 4-foot-10-inch trainer, who is shorter than the 16-hand high colt he has prepared for the first of the Triple Crown classics. The hustle and bustle of Derby week has passed Catrone and his horse by. The son of Vertex, an outstanding handicap runner of a few seasons back, of their catch He fell heavily and hadjend games.

Lopez, who also is studying law. played baseball in the Bronx where he grew up, took a job with Ihe bank in 1959 and attended a iryout camp at Yankee Stadium the following year. He didn't impress anyone and went home disappointed but continued playing sandlot ball on weekends when the bank was closed. Strictly on impulse, he called the bank one morning in 1961 and said he wouldn't be in that day. he was ill. "The Yankees were holding another tryout that day and ij figured I had nothing to lose," he recalled, smiling. This time he did impress the Yanks and they assigned scout Art Dede to follow him around. Dede saw Lopez rap out four hits during one game in Central Park and shortly afterward signed him to a contract. Pros..a bunch of crybabies By MILTON RICHMAN UPI Sports Writer NEW YORK (UPI) — Pro golfers are overly pampered crybabies sometimes and if you think not, wait until you hear them holler how tough the rough is at the U.S. Open six weeks from now. They'll complain about the rough at the Open because it has become a sort of ritual with them. They always do, even though they're fully aware the U.S. Golf Association would not permit the championship to be held on any course it considered unfit or unfair. This year's open will be played at the Bellerive Country Club in St. Louis, June 1720, and although officials there have been working two years just to get the course in perfect shape for those four days' you can expect the usual beefs from the pros. Before they start hollering, however, the golfers should consider a few of these facts: —A total of 30,000 man-hours of labor, more than it took to land our troops in Viet Nam, will go into staging the Open and this labor is chiefly on a voluntary basis. —If all this work had to be paid for, the cost would exceed a million dollars. —And the total prize money now is $125,000 whereas Horace Rawlins received only $150 for winning the first U.S. Open at Newport, R.I., in 1895. Everybody that possibly can be done to help the competitors is being done by Bellerive's 400 members, all of whom are pitching in one way or another without pay. Louis W. Menk, the general chairman of the U. S. Open committee, offers a perfect example. He's president of the St. Louis-San Francisco railway so he now has two .big jobs on his hands, one of which nets him zero. • In case defending champion Ken Venturi has trouble getting a room in St. Louis, Menk has offered him the use of his private railroad car for the Open. The USGA, which is the governing body of golf, works day and night preparing for the Open also. Longest Course Frank Hannigan, the USGA's competent tournament man ager, leaves for St. Louis Sunday and will be at the course "for the duration" to act as overseer and help local officials in any way he can. "This year's course will be the longest one in the history of the Open. It's 7,191 yards and par is 70. The rough will be standard, two inches high right off the fairway and four inches high beyond that." The format for the Open has seen changed this year to four days' play of 18 holes each in stead of three days with a 36- bole wind-up on the final day as in the past. So far, the USGA has received 1,300 entries and a total of 2,400 is expected before the May 5 -deadline. NEW YORK (NBA) — The first question they asked John Huarte was what happened to Notre Dame against Southern California. Then they started on the money and Joe Namath. "Do you think you can beat out Namath, John?" "Why did you ONLY get $200,000?" "Do you think you're worth all that money?" Sometimes it seems that kids and teen-agers ask better questions than reporters. This particular session was a£ the World's Fair where one of the pavilions has a visiting sports star once a week. They sign autographs and answer questions — when they have the answers. Huarte, the Notre Dame quarterback who won t h e Heisman Trophy last year, had only a few. Like Namath who signed for $400,000 Huarte is property of the New York Jets of the American Football League and this was his first exposure to a city that is beginning to talk about the Jets the same way they talk about the football Giants. But despite his friendliness and his basic easy-going manner, the constant and repetitious questioning made him a little uneasy. "Everyone asks about Na- math, but they don't even mention Dick Wood," Huarte said. "He's a pro quarterback. You know, you just don't come into this league as a rookie and take a job away from a guy like that. "I just look al it this way: I'm going into a fast league and I know it. I plan to work hard, very hard, and when you do that, everything just takes care of itself. "As for the money, well, Big Bear, Lake Gregory get larger trout Department of Fish and Game plants of catchable size rainbow trout in Big Bear Lake and Gergory Lake are being supplemented this year by stocking of larger trout by local authori- ies. the DFG said today. Big Bear Lake Park District s stocking some 3.000 pounds if trout weekly, with all fish averaging over one pound and sprinkling of lunkers going to our pounds or better. Crest Forest County Water District is planting Gergory Lake •egularly, 600 pounds at a time, vith fish averaging over a )ound in weight and some arger fish in the two and three pound class, the DFG said. Purpose of the plants is to add spice and variety to angling at the two lakes and give angers a chance at some trophy fish. John Huarte times change. Everyone knows that. . ." It was an extremely appropriate statement at that very moment because standing alongside Huarte was a guy named Frank Tripucka and nobody was asking him for his autograph. Tripucka was a Notre Dame All-America (a quarterback, too) but from another era. "When I came out of Notre Dame (1949) and signed my [irst pro contract with the Eagles." Tripucka said, "I got a $5,000 bonus, and $8,000 contract and a new car." That's not a bad stprt either but alongside Namath s $400,000 and Huarte's $200,000, it's like a one-log raft next to an ocean-going yacht. "I'm glad the kid got what lie did," Tripucka said. "That's the only way to work when you're a pro.

He's got the good arm they look for in the pros and he has poise. "I've only seen Nainath once in the .Grange Bowl on television, so I can't really make a comparison. "The only thing I can say is when it comes to that time when you're at that line anc you see those defenses going every which way, you'd better know what to do. "And that only comes with one thing in pro ball — experi ence. Ask Dick Wood, he knows." John Huarte knows, too. See the ALL New 1965 HONDA S-90 SCRAMBLER $49.76 Down — $22.50 Per Mo.

Quiet Surroundings "I asked for this barn. I wanted to get away from the hustle and bustle of those those Derby barns. He's getting his rest here," he said of the bay colt owned by Mrs. Ada L. Rice of Chicago. Last year and in 1962 Horatio Luro did the same thing with Northern Dancer and with Decidedly. Both responded with record runs. Decidedly finished the mile and one-quarter in 2:00 2-5 to beat Whirlaway's record of 2:01 2-5 and Northern Dancer hammered it still lower to 2:00 flat. Catrone does not expect Lucky Debonair to set any records when he takes on favored Bold Lad and the second choice Tom Rolfe, along with Native Charger, Hail To All, Flag Raiser, Swift Ruler, Dapper Dan, Mr. Pak, Carpenter's Rule and Na- rushua. Distance A Factor He was impressed with Bold Lad's apparent return to championship form Tuesday in the Derby trial. "Don't forget Bold Lad was the champ last year and he won real easy. But winning a a mile doesn't mean you will have something left for the last quarter. Lucky finished with some speed to spare in the Santa Anita Derby and again in the Blue Grass," he said. The longest any of the 11 starters ever has raced is I'/s miles and Lucky Debonair has by far the fastest time at the distance. He won the Sana Anita Derby in 1:47.
