«x Loiaasport, Indiana, Pharo»-Trfbuu» Today's Sport Parade By OSCAR FBALEY United Pre» Sports Writer NEW YORK (UP)-It's back to chuck aid duck again today for an unusual number of major league pitching stars Who -are seeing them this season. Two of the big names of the mound —Robin Roberts and Mike Garcia — are getting an unaccustomed number of lumps this season and the whispers are that they may be far over the other fide of the hill. Such 20-game winners of last season as Don Newoombe, Frank Lary, Bob Lemon, Billy flbeft, Warren Spahn and Johnny Anto. nclli are laboring along like selling platers .and Lew Burdette, who matched Roberts' 18 victories the last time out, is barely on an even keel. Other "name" hurlers having a rough go are Bob Friend, Ronnie Kline, Sal Maglie, Clem Labine, Gene Conley, Whitey Ford, Chuck Stobbs and Vinegar Bend Mizell. The reasons are many and varied, ranging all the way from physical miseries to too much bunny in "the baseball. Roberts Ailing The Phillies would pay a fM reward to discover ' just what ails Roberts, a 20-game meal ticket for six years who is only 6-10 at the moment. Garcia, the big bear of the Indians, has been hampered with a sore arm and is only 3-5 while his teammate, Lomon, blames a bad leg for a 5-7 mark. A tough luck victim, with several close defeats, is Newcombe. A Z7-game winner last season to win most valuable player and most valuable pitcher honors, he man of last season, is a mere 3-2 because of .a stiff neck and Labine "lost it" suddenly. Unbeaten from last August to June 13, he has dropped five in a row for a 3-5 mark. Antoneffi, .bothered by ? stomach ailment for two months, seems to be coming around and should improve on his 7-7 record. Mizell has been a long-time disappointment and ,woh his last two to get up to a mere 3-6. Lary came on from mid-season last year to lead the American League with 21 wins and will have to do the same to help a 4-11 record. Hoeft, bothered by shoulder trouble, is a lowly 1-4 while Ford had shoulder miseries, too, to account for his 4-1 mark. Bolls Bother KU"e Kline, a 14-game winner in 1956, blames .severe boils for his 2-11 record while the only way you can account for Friend being at 6-9 is the lack of relief pitching which might have saved him several games. Spahn- isn't too bad at 8-7 but Conley's chronic sore arm has shackled him at 2-4 and Burdette is laboring along at 6-6, Ar.d then there's Stobbs. The Senator swif.ti.p won 15 games last season but currently has a record of two wins against 12 defeats. It has driven handsome Chuck to the border of insanity because he isnt pitching that badly. In his case, it's a matter of no hits, no runs and lots of errors. But all of tihem know that when people look in the record book in succeeding years the fine type wonit reveal the wherefore. It'll simply shout "bad year." Willie Hartack Takes Spill ARLINGTON HEIGHTS, HI. CUP)—Top jockey Willie Hartack was recovering from severe cuts and bruises today, thankful things weren't any worse. Hartack, the nation's loading rider with 185 wins to date this year, was spilled in the first race at Arlington Park Wednesday. At first it was feared he had •offered a fractured vertebra and would be sidelined "indefinitely." A later re-examination of X- rays revealed there had not been e fracture. Doctors said Harlack probably would be ready to ride again within a week. Hartack tried to persuade the doctors to lot him out by Saturday so he could ride Iron Liege In tho $100,006 Arlington classic, spunky veteran that he wasn't as well as all that. Dr. Herman J. Carr, Arlington Park physician, said Hartack had « bad bruise in the area of his right kidney and abrasions on the right side of his forehead. Hartack was thrown from Smoke-Me-Now, a 2-year-old filly. The accident occurred when Smoke-Me-Now apparently tripped on a turn, aomersautting and throwing Hartack to the outside. He was sprawled on tho track while six horses pounded past. Hartack, 25, a native of Black (Lick, Pa., has won 1S5 races so far this year. His closest competitor, is veteran Willie Shoemaker, now in California, who has 1C1 winners up through Tuesday, Earlhom Students Give Helping Hand To Kentucky County RICHMOND (UP)—An Earlham College program in community assistance is concentrating on Harlan County, Ky., this summer.

Over Criticism About Cost of Saving Souls NEW YORK (UP) — Evangelist Billy Graham said Wednesday night he was peeved'at "a religious magazine that said -the money being spent 'on this New York crusade to save souls is far too much." "I wish the editor of that magazine would calculate for me how much he thinks it's worth to save one soul," Graham said, with more than a trace of indignation in his voice. "The magazine can say what it wants to say. What I know is* that Jesus said that if one soul is saved from hell for His kingdom then it's worth the whole world,." Although Graham' did jot mention toe magazine by name, he apparently referred to the Christian Century, an influential :Protestant publication that has been highly critical of the evangelist. Among, its most recent charges has been that the million dollars being spent on the Billy Gra'ham New York crusade is money expended for a cause ot doubtful worth.' Graham's taking issue with the "religious magazine" was a rare thing for him. It is his practice to refuse comment on most criticisms against him, on the ground •that "-there's already too much dissension among Protestant faiths and I don't want to add to it." In a sermon on soul-saving, Graham told a Madison Square Garden audience of 18,000 that it pained him to see that "very few Christians seem concerned over (he thousands of lost souls all around them."
