m EIGHT IRONWOOD DAILY GLOBE, IP.ONWOOD, MICHlOAN THURSDAY, JUNE 17, IMS. I I: Win 4th in Row 'He Belongs in Higher League/ Teammate Says By BERN1E KENNEDY Associated Press Sports Writer DETROIT (AP)—Jerry Lumpe probably best summed up the feeling of the Detroit Tigers and most of the players In the rest of the American League when he said of Willie Horton: "I think he belongs in a higher league — if there is such a thing." The Tigers extended their current winning streak to four games Wednesday night and once again Horton provided most of the punch. Willie The Wonder, batted in five runs in the 9-4 victory over the Boston Red Sox. He capped the productive night with a booming home run, his fourth in as many games, that missed landing in the left- centerfleld bleachers when it hit the high fence dividing the bleachers from the other seats. Horton's heroics in the game are even more amazing when one considers that he woke up feeling dizzy and complained of dizzy spells throughout the day. Team physician Dr. Russell Wright said the recent removal of polyps from Horton's nose may have something to do with the dizziness. "Go ask the Red Sox if they are dizzy," one of the Tigers quipped. The Tigers have scored 28 runs in their last four games and Horton has batted in half of them. "I was trying to hit the ball to right that last time up," Horton said. "I didn't notice the Red Sox had shifted on me until (Coach Bob) Swift shouted from the dugout." Bill Freehan said he talked to Carl Yastrzemskl the inning after Horton's homer and aaid: "You sure had him played right, all you nave to do now Is play higher." To which Yastrzemskl replied, "it least I didn't have to waste any steps trying to get to the ball." The victory, which moved the Tigers just four games behind frontrunnlng Minnesota, may have been costly. Starter Mickey Lolich slipped while delivering a curve ball In the seventh inning and felt a pull in his back. Much of the game was played in a light drlstle and Lolich said his foot slipped •» he wag making nil follow, through. It was not immediately known if he would be sidelined for any length of time. Lolich held the Red Sox scoreless and to four hits through the first six innings but was knocked out in the seventh when they scored all of their runs, three of them on a home run by Yastrzemskl. Fred Gladding came on in relief and picked up his second victory in as many nights to run his record to 3-1. Horton singled home the first Detroit run in the opening inning and his double in the seventh- wiM the longest blow in a five-run inning for the Tigers. Don Demeter's pinch-single scored the final two runs of the frame. The other came in as Jim Northrup grounded out. Lolich struck out nine Boston batters in the first four innings to regain the team leadership in that department with 73. Denny McLain moved two ahead of him with the u he turned in Tuesday night. joe Sparma and Jerry Step- hensori were the scheduled starters in the final game of the series this afternoon as the Tigers staged their second Ladies Day of the season.

Wills, Koufax of Dodgers Are Out To Better Their Own NL Records By MIKE RATHET Associated Press Sports Writer Maury Wills and Sandy Koufax of the Los Angeles Dodgers have put themselves into position to knock two guys out of the record book—Maury Wills and Sandy Koufax. Wills singled twice, stole second twice and rode home on singles by Jim Gilllam twice while Xoufax limited San Francisco to six hits and struck out eight as the National League leaders edged the Giants 2-1 Wednesday night. The performances left Wills well ahead of the pace he set when he stole a record 104 bases in 1062, and kept Koufax out front of the pace he set when he established a strikeout record for left-handers by fanning 306 in 1963. Wills now has stolen a major league-leading 41 bases in 62 games and is 16 games ahead of his own pace. In 1962, he did not pilfer his 41st base until the Dodgers' 78th game. * * * Koufax, meanwhile, brought his strikeout total to a major league-leading 135 for his first 15 appearances, in 1963, Koufax did not chalk up his 135th strikeout victim until his 18th time out. The Dodgers' victory boosted their first-place edge over Milwaukee to 3Vi games as Phila- delphla knocked off the Braves 6-2 behind the hitting of rookie catcher Pat Corrales. Elsewhere, Pittsburgh outlasted St. Louis 10-9, Cincinnati belted the New York Mets 8-4 and ouston ended an eight- game losing streak by edging the Chicago Cubs 3-2 in 13 innings. Wills legged out an infield hit in the fifth inning, stole second and, scored on Gilliam's single, then the duo did a repeat for the winning run in the seventh inning off Bob Shaw after the Giants had tied the score. Koufax, 10-3, was touched for a run in the top of the seventh when Willie Mays tripled and Jim art singled, but held on to whip the Giants for the first time since 1963. Corrales, called up from Arkansas of the Pacific Coast League last Sunday, stroked three hits, including a two-run homer in the third inning that triggered a decisive five-run outburst for the Phillies. Corrales now has five hits In seven trips to the plate. * * * Jim Bunning brought his record to 6-5, keeping nine Milwaukee hits well scattered while striking out 10. The Pirates used 23 players — all but pitchers Bob Veale and Don Cardwell — before finally subduing the Cardinals on Willie Stargell's three-run homer in the ninth. It was Stargell's 14th of the season and followed a dropped third strike by Tirn McCarver that enabled Bill Virdon to reach base and an error by Jerry Buchek on Manny Mota's grounder. Leo Cardenas hit two homers in a single game for the first time in his six-year major league career and Jim O'Toole, a 17-game winner 1st season, won his first game in six decisions as the Reds downed the Mets. The Astros broke a runless streak of 33 innings in the third inning, tied the Cubs 2-2 on Walt Bond's run-producing single in the sixth and won it the 13th on a double by Joe Morgan, a walk to Bond and a single by Bob Aspromonte. Palmer's Throne Challenged By Nicklaus in U.S. Open By BOB GREEN ST. LOUIS (AP) — Arnold Palmer appeared to be more concerned about his caddy's welfare than he was about Jack Nicklaus today when he set out in quest of the U.S. Open Golf Championship. The Open is one of the four major tourneys that support Palmer's throne as this country's premier golfer, a position that is shaky and insecure in the face of the challenge by the bull-strong 25-year-old from Columbus, Ohio. Palmer, however, mentioned Nicklaus not at all and his caddy several times after his'final preparations over the vast, rolling acres of the Bellerive Country Club course, at 7,191 yards the longest ever for an Open.

Smeeth's and Junior Charriber are knotted in sixth place with identical 1-4 tallies and in t h e league cellar is Bingo's C & M Oil with a winless 0-5 record. Next week's schedule is: Monday — Knights of Columbus vs Smeeth's and Bingo's C & M Oil vs Standard Oil. Wednesday — Carlson's takes on. Safeway and'Junior Chamber tangles with Aurora. Norrie Leads Jr. Miss Loop STANDINGS W L Norrie 4 0 Sleight 2 1 St. Ambrose l 2 Central l 2 Newport o ' 3 in Junior Miss Softball League action Wednesday evening Sleight blanked Newport 5-0 to leave the losers on the bottom of the league standings with a winless record after the second week of play. In the second contest t h e league leader, Norrie, racked up its fourth straight win as it beat St. Ambrose 14-8. Next week's schedule is: Monday—Sleight vs Norrie and Newport vs Central. Wednesday ~ Central vs Norrie and Newport vs St, Ambrose. "I hope he makes it," Palmer grinned ."He's a kind of skinny kid." The caddy is Jack Wallace, a lanky, 15-year-old who is greatly impressed with his good fortune. Palmer's first act after sizing up his caddy was to strip his bag. He discarded a No. 4 wood and at least three irons then had the boy heft it. "How's that?" he asked. "Too heavy? Lemme see what else I've got in there." But underlying his casual banter is the certain — though unspoken — knowledge that he desperately needs to win this 65th Open; that he needs not only to finish higher than tourney favorite Nicklaus but win the whole shooting match. The last year and a half has been a continuing frustration for the powerful, Llgonier, P., master — he has won only once in a year—but he mentions it only obliquely. "My game Is not as good as it has been," he said, "but it's better than It has been recently. it still needs a lot of work. "But," almost defensively, "it's not that bad, hasn't been for about a year. I'm just finishing second instead of first, that's all. Second four times in a row." One of the seconds was a tie with Gary Player, nine strokes back of Nicklaus' record-shattering 271 victory in the Masters, a triumph so overwhelming that many feel It vaulted the bulky blond to the No. l position held by Palmer for many years. The victory also triggered his drive toward a professional grand slam — winning the Masters, Open, British Open and PGA in a single year. It's never been accomplished. "I need to win one real bad," Palmer admitted. Mud Creek to Be Detoxified Chemical treatment of Mud Creek in Ironwood Township, Gogebic County, to eradicate undesirable fish, for trout management will begin Monday, June 21, and continue through June 22, according to the Regional Office of the Michigan Department of Conservation, Marquette. After the water is detoxified by the use of 1,000 pounds of activated carbon at the barrier dam, 20,000 five-inch brook trout will be released. Trout management work began on Mud Creek in 1964 when a barrier dam, to stop the movement of rough fish, was built % of a mile upstream and obstructions removed from the water to make it more accessible to fishermen who want to use boats and canoes. Funds for this project were made available through the Fed eral Accelerated Public Works and State funds, on a percentage basis. Fish biologists expect that the stream should produce legal brook trout next spring.

Ironwood Detroit Star's - ._ - A Feats Getting to Be Monotonous By JIM HACKLEMAN C'mon, William Wattlson Horton, this is getting monotonous. You drive in four runs, three on a clinching homer, and Detroit wins Saturday. Then you get two more RBI on a homer and double and the Tigers win again Sunday. Then it's another decisive three-run homer and another victory Tuesday. And Wednesday night you lead the Tigers to their fourth straight — 9-4 over Boston — with four runs knocked in with a homer, double and single. That's four homers, 14 RBI and seven hits In 14 trips through the four games. That brings Willie Horton's American League-leading homer total to 15, his RBI total to 46, and his batting average to .363. That kind of monotony Horton and the Tigers can stand. While Willie was devastating the slumping Red Sox, the Chicago White Sox climbed to within a half game of first-place Minnesota by handing Camilo Pascual his first loss, 3-1; Cleveland beat Washington 5-0 on Luis Tiant's one-hit pitching and Leon Wagner's batting; Baltimore trimmed the" New York Yankees 5-1 with a spree of early homers; and Los Angeles knocked off Kansas City twice, 7-1 and 5-4. Detroit pulled out its game against Boston with five runs in the last of the seventh inning, two scoring on Horton's double. The bulky slugger added a two- run homer in the ninth as Boston lost its sixth straight and ninth In the last 10. Mickey Lolich blanked the Red Sox until the seventh, then was knocked out in a four-run rally that included Carl Yas- trzemskl's homer with two on. Detroit reliever Fred Gladding picked up the victory while Bob Duliba was charged with the loss. Washington's only hit off Tiant was Woodie eld's single leading off the seventh. Wagner, meanwhile, drove in four of the Indians' runs with a three-run homer off loser Phil Ortega in the fourth and a single in the ninth. The White Sox chased Pascual, winner of his first eight decisions, with a three-run fourth after the curve-balling Cuban had allowed only a scratch single by Floyd Robinson over the first three innings. Robinson started the Chicago uprising with a single, Pete Ward doubled, and they scored on singles oy J. C. Martin and Ron Hansen. Pascual's bases- loaded walk to Smoky Burgess forced in the third run. John Buzhardt, 6-1, was the winner with late relief from Ed Fisher. Jerry Adair, Sam Bowens and Jackie Brandt socked Al Downing for homers in the first three innings and the Orioles coasted In against the Yankees. Adair added a two-run double In the ninth for his third hit. Lefty Dave McNally posted his first victory in five decisions with the Yanks, scattering six hits in eight innings. Dick all held New York in the ninth. George Brunet threw a five- hitter and struck out nine in the Angels-Athletics opener and Joe Adcock, who drove in two runs with two doubles in the first game, clinched the nightcap with a homer in the sixth inning. Dean Chance, Cy Young Award winner as the majors' top pitcher last year, started the second game for the Angels but was Ineffective again — and lasted only until the fifth. BEROLAND—The 1064 Western Michigan Upper Peninsula High" School baseball League runner-up Bergland Vikings are hoping for the league's top spot this'season with a well-balanced unit made up of two seniors. three juniors, four sophomores and two eighth graders.
