Good Draft Luck,free Agents Make Job Competition Rough By THE ASSOCIATED PRESS The A m e r i c a n Footbal! League s maturity is beginning to show, and it is costing some of its once-established veterans their jobs. All AFL teams had to pare down to 43 players Tuesday anc the league's coaches, four of whom are new in their jobs, discarded a player's experience as a prime requisite for keeping a job. Such hasn't been the case the past two years when the AFL almost desperately sought any player who had pro experience. With some good luck in the last college player draft, and in signing free agents, the talent quotient in the new loop is beginning to rise. Oakland, which won only two games a year ago, cut 2-year veteran Tom Louderback, a linebacker, Willie Smith, a starting guard a year ago, and tackle Al Bansavage, a reserve linebacker last year. The 'Raiders also placed end Bob Coolbaugh and rookie linebacker Joel Walenta on the injured reserve list. Crolbaugh has a broken leg and Walenta a cracked rib. The New York Giants, another of the AFL's weaker clubs, cut linebacker Ted Greene, defensive end Paul Miller and defensive fialfback J o h n n y Bookman, keene and Miller were obtained from Dallas in a trade and all three had seen service last year. Defensive end Gary Wiseaer, a 2-year pro veteran, was released by Houston, as was 4ryear veteran Opie Bandy. The Boston Patriots cut veteran lineman John Simerson. He has been hampered by a knee injury since last season, and was one of five cut Tuesday by Coach Mike Bolovak. The others were defensive back John Parrinello halfbacks Clarence Mason anc Don Christman and tackle Tom "handler. In the National Football League ;he Los Angeles Rams also rounc themselves talent-rich in linemen, something they've been needing for the past five years. Four ol their first five draft choices were linemen in the past college draft, and they signed all four. With a marked improvement in the offensive and defensive lines in two exhibition victories, Los Angeles dealt John Comett, their No. 3 draft choice from Rice, to the Dallas Cowboys for an undisclosed draft choice. The San Francisco 49ers also dealt rookie offensive ends John Burrell of Rice and Dan Coffey of Memphis State to Pittsburgh, also for an undisclosed draft choice. The Detroit Lions cut rookies Jim Davidson of Maryland, a and Karl Anderson of Bowling Green, an offensive tackle. MO RUNS, NO WIN BOSTON (/PI--Gene Conley has Lever beaten the New York Yan- ees. His fourth setback against lie champions came when Ralph erry pitched a shutout for his 12th victory. Conley allowed but ive hits but,lost, 1-0, on a single rookie Tom Tresh. INDOOR FOOTBALL ATLANTIC CITY, N. J. Wl- Indoor football was so successful here last year that an annual "Football Festival" is being planned. A series of indoor games will be played- in late'fall, climaxed by the "Little Amry-Navy Game" Dec. 1 between the Merchant Marine Academy and Pennsylvania Military College. City officials say the mammoth Convention Hall is the only building which can hold a regulation football field. Pro Charts Yankees Bomb Angels In Big Tenth Inning LOS ANGELES (AP)--The New York Yankees erupted for seven runs in a wild 10th inning Tuesday night and beat Los Angeles in their'series opener, 11-4 before 50,830. The highlight of the inning, was Roger Maris' grand slam home run. The defeat dropped the second- place Angels five games behind the Yankees. Reliever Jack Spring was the victim of Maris' grand slam home run the fifth of Maris' career. The ball sailed 390 feet into the right center field seats. The most prodigious homer of the night, however, was delivered by Yankee catcher Elston Howard in the sixth inning. The ball soared over the center field fence 425 feet from home plante. New York got only five hits off southpaw starter Bo Belinsky, who had a one-hitter 'going until Howard smashed his homer. Lee Thomas, Los Angeles first baseman, smashed his 18th and 19th home' runs and became the first player in either.major league to hit two homers in a game on two occasions at Chavez Ravine. He hit two May 26 at Kansas City and two more June 12 here against Minnesota. Howard's homer was his 15th of the season. Bud Daley, the third Yankee pitcher, got the victory,, making his record 6-3. Reliever Ryne Duren was the loser. Yankee second baseman Bobby Richardson collected two~ hits and has now hit safely in 12 consecutive games. The Angels' other run came in the fourth. Bob Rogers singled and after George Thomas walked, Jim Fregosi singled sharpley to center to bring in Rogers.
