Costly smoke signals The National Game of the Week cameras zoomed in on Casey Stengel taking a quick drag on a cigarette the other day. And Yogi Berra, his coach with the New York Mets, is another who sneaks quick puffs during a ball game. It's as though the boys never knew there's a standing baseball fine of SlOO for guys smoking in the dugout. . . . The radio-television hoys have neatly resolved the problem of what to call Jesus Alou, the slugging young outfielder of the San Francisco Giants. They give his first name the Spanish pronunciation — "Hay-soos." . All tills lovey-dovey admiration society between Casey Sten gel and Warren Spahn on t h e Mets has to tickle those who know the history of their relationship. Through most of their major league career, Spalm nursed a hate for the old man because it was Stengel, as manager of the old Boston Braves in pre-World War II days, who shipped Spahn back to the minors . . . and also questioned his fortitude on the mound. . .

This has been the quietest trading period in pro football for at least five years. In all the NFL, only seven deals have been made in 1965, most of them minor. The big ones were John David Crow (Cards) for Abe Woodson (49ers) and Dan Currie (Packers) for Carroll Dale (Rams).

One man not surprised by the early hit splurge of Danny Cater of the White Sox is Bob Veale, the fine pitcher of the Pittsburgh Pirates. On a night Veale struck out 21 batters in the International League, he lost the game when Cater, tlien a Philly chattel in Buffalo, tripled in the ninth inning. . . . This is how it is with the Yankees under CBS management. Bob Fishel is the vice president in charge of public relations. Perry Smith, who handles the telecasts, is the vice president of broadcast affairs. Johnny Keane is undoubtedly the vice president in charge of the dugout. And Jackie FaiTell advises us he's the vice president in charge of Mickey Mantle autographs.

Middleweight Rubin Carter, back in action stateside after getting jobbed in England, sighs, "If it wasn't for bad luck, I wouldn't have no luck at all." The goateed contender is one of the most colorful men in the ring, cheerfully admits to a lurid background ("I used to be a scoundrel") and cracks that if they put the police commissioner of Paterson, N.J. (his home town) in the ring as referee, "I might hit him then." . . . But he won't move to Denver — Carter, Sonny Liston and Cookie Gilchrist would be too much in one place. . . . Between you'n'me, there've been strange rumblings of big peace powwows between the two major pro football leagues. . . . NEW YORK (NEA) — Match Shirley Booth against Elizabeth Taylor in a bikini contest and you understand why Fred Newman didn't attract much attention last year with the Los .Angeles Angels. His competition was Dean Chance, the Cy Young Award winner; and Bo Belmsky, the Mamie Van Doren Award winner. When they squeezed Newman's name into the papers, the 23- year-old was quietly revealed as one of the best righthanders m the American League. He had a 13-10 record, a 2.75 E.R.A., and allowed just 39 walks in 190 innings, second lowest in the league. He also became the fourth member of the expansion-draft club to reach stardom in a relatively short time. Shortstop Jim Fregosi, catcher Bob Rodgers and Chance are the others. "To be truthful," Newman said, "I don't know what the .Angels saw in me to make them draft me." From Brookiine, Mass., Newman was originally the property of the Boston Red Sox (signed personally by owner Tom Yawkey) and spent one year in the Boston farm system at Corning, N.Y. He was 4-10 with a 4.08 earned run average. But let Angel manager Bill Rigney pick it up here. "No," Rig said, "we had never seen Fred — or Chance either. As you can see, there was a lot of good fortune involved. "In Fred's case, we knew the. Red Sox had been pretty high that much tougher to hit. on him. He had received a "Before 1 got into pro ball," bonus just like Fregosi and Newman said, somewhat sheep- Chance, iishly, "I didn't even know "Our thinking was that if the lit was a sinker. I don't know Dean Chance other clubs were that interested, these kids must have something. That's how we made some of our choices. "We watched him closely every year we had him at spring training and you could see the difference every spring. Before last season, he hadn't really matured as a pitcher. But when he came to Palm Springs you could see it immediately. He had confidence." what makes it sink because as near as 1 can tell I throw it the same way everybody else throws a fast ball." Being a sinker-ball pitcher does have its advantages (more double play balls, less home runs), but it has its dangers, too. "With Fred, the crucial part of the game comes in the first three innings," catcher Rodgers said. "If he comes out and Newman's best pitch is a | starts throwing too hard, the natural sinker which makes him!sinker won't be effective. It! "is real good." Fred Newman straightens out and comes in high. And you know what happens to high pitches. "Most young s i n k e r-ball pitchers are like this they're .just too strong at the start. Last year Fred tried that double warmup before games like (Jim) Bouton. He thought this would neutralize some of that early strength. "Once he gets by those early innings, he's really something. The thing is to know your pov.'er on the particular day you're going to pitch Then you :oncentrate accordingly. "Fred's concentration," Rodgers concluded with a big grin, Plays ball for one club but another educating him TOP AND BOTTOM—ShortstopZoilo 'Versalles of the Minnesota Twins heads for home with a perfect slide, left, out Don Drysdale of the Dodgers seems to be having a bit of a problem on this ground ball.

(UPD- Tlie Kansas City Athletics reduced their roster to ihe May 11 limit of 25 players Wednesday by assigning Jose Santiago to Vancouver of the Pacific League. Santiago, a 24-year-oId right­ hander, appeared in four games as a reliever this year. He had no record and a 9.00 earned run average in five innings. bile rally, which started today. Erik, Swedish rally ace, and his wife, sister of famed Grand Prix driver Stirling Moss, were scheduled to start the first 500-mile leg of the race in separate cars, as is their custom since both are "nervous passengers" and prefer to compete separately. In their last dual appearance at the East .African Safari, Erik, teamed with his brother- in-law Stirhng, was forced to drop out of the race early while Pat, one of the earlly leaders, finished the gruelling rally. The toughest part of the rally, which is scheduled to end Sunday afternoon, is the last 1,500 miles which winds about the mountainous Victorian "Back- I blocks." "Stop shooting off your mouth," he told him. "If you want to go back to Rochester we can arrange it for you. But quickly." Exit Blefary, a sadder, wiser and much quieter young man. Going Places There's little question lie'.i going places, though. Little question in the Orioles' minds and little in his own. His father put a bat in his hands when he was two years old and, hke Mickey Mantle's pop, taught him to be a switch hitter. When Blefary first reported to the Yanks, batting coach Wally Moses changed him around to strictly a left- handed swinger. Moss wanted him to take advantage of that Yankee Stadium short porch in right field and that's exactly what Blefary is doing. Only Moses had it planned another way. ^VHERE THE ACTION IS—Billy Cowan of the New "^ork Mefs, left, slides into home after getting the slide signal from on-deck hatter Eoy MciMillan (II).
