Mex. study Sanders feels tour winners gain eligibility NEW Y'ORK (UPI) — Doug Sanders insists any golfer good enough to win a tournament on the pro tour should qualify automatically for the U.S. Open championship. George Archer and Rod Funseth were inchned to agree today. Both those young pros won tour tournaments this season. But both flunked their first tests for this year's Open and will sit it out w-hen the field of 150 tecs off June 17 at the Bellerive Country Club of St. Louis. Sanders? He has no worries. Doug won two louiTianients this season and qualified automatically as one of 1965's top money winners. Wliile Kermit Zarley of Yakima, Wash., was ringing up a nationwide lead on a 67-69—136 at Mempliis m the toughest of 47 tests completed Monday, Archer and Funseth were losing a playoff for the 40th and final berth in tlie Mempliis scramble. Chaiioy Goody's birdie on the fii'st extra hole of a si.vnian playoff bumped Funseth, winner of the Phoenix Open, and Ai'cher, winner of the Lucky International at Las Vegas. Zarley's 136 was good for a one stroke lead across the nation as 347 swingers advanced to the second round of trials victories. The triumph. Spalin's 360th, places the balding southpaw in a tie for sixth place on the hst of all-time winners. Eddie Kranepool and Charley Smith backed Spahnie with roundtrip- pers. Lary. 34, making his second start of the year, permitted only three safeties m eight innings in winning his first decision of the campaign. The onetime Yankee killer got help from young Tug McGraw in the ninth after Tony Gonzalez got the Phillies only run of the game with his fourth home run. The big hit for the Meis was Johnny Lewis' three-run clout in the sixth when New York scored all its runs. Julian Javier's three hits and Tracy Slallard's pitching led St. Louis to its victory which cut the Los Angeles league-lead to one game. The Cards went ahead for good in the fifth with three and added two more in the seventh. Claude Osteen was tagged with the loss, his fourth in seven decisions. Second place Cincmnati tallied three times off loser Dave Giusti in the second inning and coasted home behmd the pitching of Jim Maloney and Joey Jay. Maloney left the contest after seven frames when his arm tightened. Deron Johnson, John Edwards, Leo Cardenas and Maloney had foui' hits each. Third baseman Eddie Mathews socked a three-run homer in the third inning off loser Bob Shaw as Hank Fischer won his first decision of the year. It was Mathews' ninth of tlie season and 454th of his career. The final Brave tally crossed the plate on a sacrifice fly by Hank .•^aron. Pittsburgh made it four in a row thanks to a four-hit performance by rightfielder Roberto Cleniente. Teammates Donn Clendenon and .Andre Rodgers chipped in with three apiece.

"Hy'a, Babe," said Pie Traynor, manager of the Pittsburgh Pirates, as he approached the player. "Not too good. Pie," Babe Ruth rasped. "I feel tired these days. My legs ain't what they used to be and lately my eyes have been bothering me." Traynor said a few reassuring words and returned to his dugout to prepare the lineup. He reflected that the Babe was 40 now and there shouldn't be any wonder about that "tired" feeling. That was May 25, 1935—a day that was to go down ball history. Shortly before the game started, a Pittsburgh sports writer confidentially told Traynor: "Don't worry about the Babe giving you any trouble. "The Babe and I were out on the town until 5 a.m. today." .A few minutes later Ruth belied that "tired" feeling when he was at bat in the first inning. "He didn't look too tired when he smacked a homer off Red Lucas," Traynor recalled. "There was one man on base at the time." Babe trotted arornid the bases after hiltmg home run No. 712 of his career. Guy Bush had relieved Lucas when Ruth came to bat in the third inning. The count was 3-2 and some 10,000 fans in the stands that Saturday afternoon waited for the next pitch. It The Yucaipa Gun Club held a successful shoot Sunday despite inclement weather. Ellis Simon won the off-hand 300-yard ! shoot with a 41 V. base- 1 was a fast ball which Ruth pro-j w. Krupp. Sr.. won the bench jpelled into the right field stands,,-est shoot wilh telescope and in for a two-run homer. Got A Single "Ruth came to bat in the fifth inning and I figured he couldn't hit another homer," Traynor said. "He didn't — but he nicked Bush for a run-scoring single." The bases were empty when Ruth strolled to the plate in the! seventh innmg. Bush worked j carefully and deliberately. ; "I remember it was a 3-1 pitch," Traynor said. "Surely. 1 he had done liis damage for the| day. But the next pitch he smashed made history at Forbes Field. It sailed over the right field stands—the first time anyone ever sent the ball that far." The fans cheered, little knowing that they had just seen Ruth hit the 714th—and last — home run of his career. Ithe iron sight division Hank !c 'obb took top honors. The next shoot will be a bench rest at 100 yards on May 30. Following the shoot, a pot luck dinner featuring vension and sauce was served. <uns National League — Mays, Giants 17: Swoboda.
