San Francisco enters the game holding a four-game lead over Los Angeles, five over.the Cards—and with Willie Mays hitting only .265. "But we are in a belter situa tion and playing better ball than we were last year," says Mays. "I'm not hitting as good as I should. But somebody seems to pick us up when we need the hits, that's the way championship teams work." Nobody's worried about Willie's hitting. Although his average is down, he has smashed 10 home runs and driven in 25 runs. The pleasant surprises are infielders Chuck Hiller (.3li), Jose Pagan (.293) and Jim Davenport (.337). While 'their averages have not been over-powering, they have hit in the clutch—and .their fielding has been brilliant. "We played good all-around ball on this road trip," says manager Alvin Dark, "But it's still far too early to talk about a pennant. There are lough teams in this league. Our pitching will have to stand up if we are to stay on top." So far this year the pitching has been a pleasant surprise! Giant hurlers have gone the distance 17 times out of.the 32 games played.

Twenty-one of the 72 cars entered in this year's speed classic qualified last weekend for the starting lineup leaving only 12 spots to fill in the limited field this weekend. But it is probable some "bumping" will occur as faster cars take the track. The pole position, however, is secure in the hands of Parnelli Jones, co-rookie of the year winner last year. He set a new all- time record Saturday with qualifying speeds over the magic 150 mile per hour mark.' The 21 that did qualify averaged 147.6 miles per hour.

One driver, Norman Hall, i was hospitalized. Saturday. when his car bounced off the wall. He was listed in fair condition today. He suffered head and back injuries. The car is out of the race. Another car, owned by James Metzloff of Snyder, N.Y., has been withdrawn and Metzloff is going home. Len Sutton, Portland, Ore., took advantage of the warm weather Monday to push his car for 54 laps at an average speed of better than 146 miles per hour to see how far he could drive on a full load of fuel. However, he was forced to cut the test short because of a worn tire. The cars taking to the 2!/ 2 -mile oval today may have to slow down a little bit however, The weather forecast calls for gusty winds with some isolated showers which, if they hit Indianapolis, could halt practice entirely.

(UPI Unifax) ACTION IN IOWA Medical Society Opposes Medico re DBS MOINiES (UPI) - Opposi- lion to President Kennedy's medical care for the aged program mounted today, with members of ;he Iowa Medical Society on record against it. D'r. Otto N, Glesne, Fort Dodge, said Monday at least 95 pe r cent of its members "resent the gradual, intrusion of government into medicine and its concommitant oss of the free enterprise sys- 2m." Glesne said the aged in Iowa would be care'd for, '.'even to the joint of doing it all gratis," but predicted "less than 50'per cent" >f the .state's doctors would par- i'cipate in a care plan financed by Social Security taxes. Such a program, as outlined, in he Kennedy-supported King-Anderson bill, .is opposed by the American Medical Association and various other medical groups. Some 250 doctors .in New Jersey .ast week threatened to boycott a Social Security-financed medicare )rogram. The hea8 of the Illinois Medical' Society called such a plan step "toward state, medicine, state socialism and autocratic government." The American Uro- ogical Association officially went on record against Social Security- 'inanced medical care for the el.: derly. Glesne said there was no or- anized action under way to line up Iowa physicians against .the 1 Kennedy administration's- legisla- live program. He said "this is definitely not a repeat of the New Jersey revolt" and added,"I can't really say what Ihe doctors will do." Dr. Edwin' S. Hamilton, president of the Illinois Medical Society, said earlier this week the Kennedy plan would be "bad for the people of this country." He said Illinois physicians are supporting the Kerr-Mills bill, w.hich would provide medical care for the aged who need it through matching federal and state grants administered at local levels of government. In a meeting at. Philadelphia the American Urological Association unanimously opposed the administration bill and requested "full implementation of the Kerr- Mills Act and voluntary insurance." Secretary of Health, Education and Welfare Abraham Ribicoff has called the New Jersey rebellion, sparked by Dr. 'J. Brace Henricksen, Point Pleasant, N.J., an attempt to "blackmail Congress.," Not all organizations involved in medical care oppose the measure, A spokesman for the Group Health Association of America, holding its annual convention in Washington, said delegates will reaffirm their support for the medicare plan in a resolution.
