OVER BRAVES CUBS LOSE TO CARDS IN 10th St. Louis Gets Five Runs Off Faul BY ROBERT MARKUS (Chicago Tribune Press Service St. Louis, Aug. 24 Perhaps when Bill Faul comes out of the deep shock into which the Cardinals put him he'll find out that he was not the losing pitcher after all in tonight's game in Busch stadium. Perhaps some kind soul will tell him that the ball game eventually went 10 innings and that Ted Abernathy, the fourth Cub pitcher, absorbed the 7 to 6 defeat. And maybe they'll tell him how the Cubs fought back from five runs behind to knock out Ray Sadecki in the sixth inning and Hal Woodeshick in the ninth, when they scored the tying run. And finally, maybe someone will tell him how the Cardinals won the game in the 10th when Tito Francona topped a roller to third with the bases loaded and Kurt Flood beat Ron San-to's throw to the plate. That's the Story And when they tell him, he'd better believe it, for that's the way it was tonight. Faul went into the game in his usual self-induced trance and staggered out a half-hour later suffering from Cardinal-induced shell shock. The world's champions needed only an inning and a third to send the eccentric hurler reeling back to the dugout, apparently doomed to his fourth defeat. In that period, the Cardinals made five runs and seven hits, including Lou Brock's three-run homer which signalled the end for Faul. Burton Falls Down But at that, the Cubs might have won had not Ellis Burton fallen flat on his back on the rain-slick outfield turf while chasing Bill White's fly ball in the fifth inning. Burton watched helplessly as the ball fell be hind him for a double, driving in the last run the Cardinals were to set until the 10th. A steady rain began to fall in the third inning, and that was the signal for the Cubs to move. They scored two runs on Continued on page 2, col. 4 Opportunity for Lead Escapes Milwaukee New York, Aug. 24 3 A three run double by Pinch Hitter Johnny Stephenson in the ninth inning tonight lifted the New York Mets to a 4 to 3 triumph over the Los Angeles Dodgers. - The Mets, trailing 3 to 1 going into the last of the ninth, got a break when Second Baseman Jim Lefebvre fumbled Ron Swoboda's leadoff grounder for an error. Ed Kranepool singled and Joe Christopher beat out a bunt, filling the bases. Stephenson then batted for Chris Cannizzaro and cleared the bases with a double.

Losing Atten- Agreement Reachedon Wolf ner Suit The long legal battle between Walter Wolfner, former managing director of the St. Louis football Cardinals, and Charles and William Bid-will over the estate of Mrs. Violet Bidwill came to an end yesterday. The Tribune learned last night that an out of court settlement was reached. A suit and an appeal in the case were dismissed. The terms of the agreement were not disclosed. ' Mrs. Bidwill died in 1962. Her will left the bulk of the estate, estimated at 3 million dollars, to her sons. The will also left Wolfner five oil wells in Oklahoma, but he sought a one-third share of the estate. Reds, 3; Braves, 2 Milwaukee, Aug. 24 UPD Cincinnati's Tommy Harper hit a two-run ninth-inning homer tonight to defeat Milwaukee, to 2, and to prevent the Braves from taking the Na tional league lead. The Braves were leading, 2 to 1, and were just one out away from vaulting over the Los Angeles Dodgers into first place when Harper hit his 15th homer into the left field bleachers, scoring Jim Coker ahead of him and leaving the Braves one half game back in the standings.

Bruce Howard came into the ninth with the handsome edge principally constructed on a four-run outburst in the third against Dave McNally. But Howard failed against the first two Orioles in the ninth, cast ing two wild pitches, which brought a 63d call to the bullpen master, Ed Fisher. This wasn't Ed's night, tho, and he too needed help. Finally, with runners at third and second, Tommy John fanned Brooks Robinson, the Orioles' most dangerous batter. Thus barely was saved the J.'-vi.v.-. -, -;s" S.: - Roseboro Calls Attorney; May Sue Marichal New York, Aug. 24 John Roseboro, Los Angeles Dodgers catcher who was hit over the head with a baseball bat by Juan Marichal, said today he has discussed a legal suit against the San Francisco pitching star. "But there is nothing definite," Roseboro said. "I got a message from my lawyer and called him. We discussed the possibilities of a suit, and decided to wait until I get back to Los Angeles to go over it more thoroly." Roseboro went to a hospital for precautionary X-rays, which proved negative.

HORSE RACING At Arlington Park, Arlington Heights, 2:30 P. m. HARNESS RACING) At Sportsman's Park, 3301 S. Laramie v., 8:40 p. m. BY MAURICE SHEVLIN The $58,000 Futurity Trial stakes, carrying first money of $35,500, up for decision at six and one-half furlongs today, just about emptied the Arlington Park barns of 2-year-old colts and geldings with 14 being named to start. The event is the final test leading to the richest of all races, the $360,000 Arlington-Washington Futurity on Saturday, Sept. 11, and in the forced absence of the sensational Graustark, recently fired for a shin splint, the chances of some others were increased immeasurably. Of the 14 named to run today, Cornelius V. Whitney's Port Wine, altho beaten six lengths by Graustark in the $50,000 added Arch Ward stakes, is starts, including The Juvenile, listed as a narrow favorite over the eastern threat, Our Michael. Port Wine Choice Port Wine, which will be ridden by the nation's leading jockey, WTillie Shoemaker, had a four-race winning streak until he found Graustark everything he was cracked up to be in the Ward. Second money of $10,000, however, raised the earnings for the son of Porterhouse to $142,725, and he. has the distinction of being the leading money winning juvenile of the season. Port Wine, which will carry top weight of 122 pounds, accounted for the Howard stakes and the $100,000 Hollywood Juvenile championship. Our Michael has won five of eight Christiana, Tyro, and Great American stakes thruout the eastern seaboard tracks and will be ridden today by Johnny Sellers while carrying 118 pounds. The Bolero colt has been third in his last two starts, the Sapling and the Ocean City stakes, and has a bankroll of $89,234. Others in the top echelon of the race today are Dr. and Mrs. J. R. Smith's Royal House, John M. Olin's Fathers Image, impressive winner of his maiden start last week, and Everett Lowrance's four - time stakes winner, He Jr. The remainder of the Futuri ty Trial stakes is composed of City Note, Shecky Chi, Rom Continued on page 5, col. 4 victory which moved the sec ond-place White Sox to witnin 6 games of the Minnesota Twins, who lost to the New York Yankees. Crowd of 19,930 Before the Orioles' uprising induced shivers in the crowd of 19,930, the White Sox had been progressing smoothly. Howard himself started the four-run bite against McNally with the first of his two singles. Bill Skowron's single drove in two of the runs in the inning. After that the White Sox played it cozy, using the sacrifice bunt to put runners into position to score on singles. Gene Freese, purchased Monday from Pittsburgh, replaced slumping Pete Ward at third base against the left-handed McNally. He walked in the third and later singled. Howard had yielded only five hits and had whiffed eight when he came into the ninth with a chance for his first complete game in 18 starts. Curt Blefary, whose triple in the 12th inning beat the White Sox Monday, led with a single. Two serves later he was crossing the plate. On Howard s first wild pitch, with Charlie Lau up, Blefary took second. He was off and running with the next pitch no attempt is made to hold runners on when a team is enjoying a big lead and when this one bounced past John Romano, Blefary scored. Fisher is Next After Lau walked on four pitches, Fisher was invited to bring order, but Bob Johnson and Paul Blair singled to load the bases. Pinch Man John Or-sino's sacrifice fly scored Lau and Johnson came home on an infield out by Norm Siebern. Luis Aparicio dropped a single in left to score Blair and slash the White Sox lead to one run. This brought up John Powell, the 235-pound southpaw slugger. When he pulled one foul, Al. Lopez hurried to the mound and called for John, a lefty, to minimize the danger of a long ball. But John, scheduled to face the Orioles in tomorrow's final, walked Powell after Aparicio had stolen second. Brooks Robinson took two Continued on page 2, col. 2 w.

YANKS WIN ON TRESH HOMER Stottlemyre Hurls 2 to 1 Victory Minneapolis, Aug. 24 Cf) Tom Tresh hit a two-run homer in the eighth inning and Mel Stottlemyre stopped Minnesota on five hits tonight, pacing the New York Yankees to a 2 to 1 triumph over the American league-leading Twins. Tresh's blow, following Mickey Mantle's single to center with two outs, beat Jim Perry, who had shut out the Yankees on five hits thru seven innings. Elston Howard's third single of the game, following Tresh's 400-foot homer, chased Perry and brought in Dick Stigman, Joe Pepitone grounded out, ending the rally. Stottlemyre pitched out of several jams in gaining his 16th victory, tying Minnesota's Jim Grant for the league lead.

H., Aug. 24 (UPD A general alarm fire raged thru a large stable at Rockingham Park race track tonight, killing at least two thorobred horses. It was the second major blaze at the track in nine days. The blaze erupted shortly after 10 p. m. in a barn at the northern edge of the sprawling park. Police said at first that several horses had died but they later reported that two and possibly three had been killed. Nineteen thorobreds were killed in a half million dollar fire at Rockingham the night of Aug. 15. The stable that burned tonight was about 200 yards from the scene of the earlier fire. - (David. fojidofL 1 AN ALMOST ANONYMOUS gridiron great iinauy is getting some of the recognition long due him. He is Evans-ton's John Leo Paddy Driscoll, and to know Paddy is to be wild about him. This afternoon and evening Paddy will be feted by Northwestern university's "N" club, and the Northwestern club of Chicago, at their golf outing in Wflmette. Next month Paddy will traipse to Canton, O., for ceremonies inducting him into professional football's Hall of Fame. For those who just dropped in, Paddy has excellent credentials for the Hall of Fame: He starred for both the Chicago Cardinals, now in St, Louis, and for the Chicago Bears. When Red Grange moved from Illinois to the Bears, there was only one other active football player whose name inspired similar awe. He was Paddy Driscoll. On days when Paddy wore his football uniform on the scales, he might weigh as much as 150 pounds. But every pound was dynamite. Walter Camp, who thought everything west of the Hudson was guns, gangsters, and aborigines, called Paddy the greatest quarterback ever. Similar praise was tendered by Walter Eckersall, the University of Chicago's brilliant bantam, when Walter was tending store in the Chicago Tribune sports department. PADDY DRISCOLL arrived on the Northwestern campus in 1914. His reputation had gone ahead, because he was the rage of the high school gridiron at Evanston. Northwestern wasn't a gridiron great in those days but with Driscoll's inspiration was able to hold some scores close when he broke in as a soph in '15. Paddy was a drop kick specialist and, late in the game against hated Chicago, kicked a field goal to temporarily Paddy Driscoll . .honors come break a scoreless tie. The tie existed again when the referee ruled that Paddy's kick was made after the whistle had sounded ending the third quarter. Chicago went on to win, 7 to 0. The Iowa 9 to 6 and Indiana 13 to 6 games were also close. Paddy scored the tonchdown against Indiana, and scampered 85 yards to set up the Iowa tally. Next year, Paddy was captain. He scored nine of the Purple's 10 points as N. U. whipped Chicago for the first time in 15 years. His field goal was a 43 yard drop kick. Ohio State dealt Northwestern its only loss of 1916. Paddy kicked a field goal to put Northwestern in the lead before Ohio turned loose Chic Harley. Ohio won the game for the conference championship, 23 to 3. You are not going to believe this, but the next summer found Paddy playing second base for 12 games for the Chicago Cubs. WHEN AMERICA WENT to war, Paddy went too. The impending call to service, and the necessity of supporting his widowed mother, had prompted Driscoll's fling with the Cubs. Stationed at Great Lakes, Driscoll paced the Bluejackets' famous football team. The Great Lakes gang defeated the Mare Island marines, Dick Hanley's outfit, 17 to 9, in the 1919 Rose bowl game. Paddy kicked a 30 yard field goal and passed 22 yards to George Halas for a touchdown. Paddy and Halas didn't realize it that day, but they were to hook up again. Pro football was a lusty youngster in those days. A Hammond promoter offered Paddy $50 a game after his naval service had ended. Paddy wanted $75 and got it after debuting against Pine Village with a field goal and a 63 yard touchdown ran. Chris O'Brien took Driscoll to the Chicago Cardinals in 1920 for a fat $300 per game. So Driscoll was the pride of the Cards late in 1925, when Halas introduced the great Red Grange to the Bear fans attending the annual Bears-Cardinals' Donnybrook. The game was a scoreless tie because Grange couldn't shake loose. Driscoll was the reason. Paddy punted 23 times and kept the ball so far away from the red head that Grange made only three punt returns. The next year Grange envisioned greater grandeur. He joined the New York club in a new league, the American. Actually, Red did Halas a favor. George went out and paid $3,500 to bring Paddy Driscoll from the Cardinals to the Bears. He was to know many more fine hours, capping them all in 1956 when he was given the Bears' head coaching post while Halas took a two year "retirement." Paddy has wandered around a bit elsewhere. He coached in Chicago's Catholic league and put in a spell at Marquette university. And Paddy's old pal and aid, Tarz Taylor, likes to remember the week they prepared to play Boston U., which was a 27 point favorite. As Tarz tells it, two days before the game he was sent out for marshmallows and similar goodies. Then Driscoll lighted a bonfire on the practice field, assembled the squad, and said: "No practice. Yon can't play football anyhow, so well toast marshmallows." Marquette won. It has been a long time coming, all this recognition for Paddy Driscoll. He certainly deserves it, and we job in the salute. We've heard only one rap, ever, against Driscoll. Taylor said Paddy burned the marshmallows.
