r" PAGE THE By FRED McMANE UP! Sports Writer Deron Johnson, sold by the Philadelphia Phillies to the Oakland As earlier this month, has become an integral part of the As offense as the teams designated hitter and is showing off the power that once made him one of the most feared hitters in the National League. Johnson collected a double and a two-run homer Monday night to lead the As to a 5-0 victory over the Kansas City Jfoyalfr When" f'firg) heard of the designated hiUerute, PdidnT give it much thought, said Johnson, who is only one career homer away from the coveted 200 mark. I didnt see myself coming over to the American League in a designated hitter situation. I thought I had four or five more years to play. But its not much different over here. Im still batting fourth or fifth. Since going to the As on May 5 Johnson has been hitting the ball at a .301 clip in 18 games with five homers and 15 runs batted in. In the only other AL games, Boston beat Baltimore, 4-1, and Cleveland walloped New York, 10-5. San Francisco defeated Houston, 9-4, in a nationally televised game and Pittsburgh edged Philadelphia, 5-4, in the only National League action. St. Louis at New York and Chicago at Montreal were rained out. Jim Hunter benefitted from Johnsons lusty hitting to notch his fifth victory against two defeats for Oakland. Luis Tianttossed a four-hitter as he beat the Orioles for the fifth straight time over the last two years. Luis Aparicio contributed a two-run single and Carl Yastrzemski a two-run double to the the Red-Sox attack as they pinned the loss on Jim Palmer. Gaylord Perry survived a four-run second inning to notch his sixth victory and Buddy Bell collected four hits to spark the Indians triumph over the Yankees.

Chris Speier drove in four runs with a homer and a triple to spark the Giants triumph over the Astros in the first of the Monday night TV-baseball specials. The victory broke a four-game losing streak for the Giants and moved them to within percentage points of the Astros in the battle for first place in the NL-West. - Garry Maddox and Ed Goodson also Allison in Indy INDIANAPOLIS, Ind. (UPI) Bobby Allison of NASCAR racing fame is so anxious to make a good showing in the Indianapolis 500 next Monday that he has withdrawn from one of the Souths top stock car attractions, the World 600 at Charlotte, N.C. He . hooked up with one of racings top teams, the Roger Penske stable, that also includes Mark Donohue and Gary Bettenhausen. All three start next weeks Memorial Day classic in the first four rows, with Donohue, the defending champion, on the outside of the front row, Bettenhausen in the middle of the second and Allison on the outside of the fourth as the fastest rookie qualifier at Speedway at 192.3 miles hour. Allison, 35, from Huey town, Ala., has been racing since the late 1950s. His brother, Donnie, was highly successful in two holiday races here, placing fourth three years ago and sixoh the following year. Ive always wanted to run here some day, he reflected in a moment of relaxation in the Speedways Gasoline Alley. Donnies running here made it easier for me to come to the Speedway, but he also would like to run here again. The fact that the Indianapolis 500 is so time-consuming and qualifications are spread over two weekends makes it difficult for the southern stock car elite as well as for foreign drivers to take a crack at racings biggest jackpot.

The Phillies had built a 4-0 lead after three innings behind ace Steve Carlton, but the Pirates bounced back on homers by Willie Stargell and Manny Sanguillen to tie the score after six innings. Star-gells homer was his 12th of the season, giving him the major league lead. Carlton was knocked out-kvthe seventh inning. Allison first drove sports cars for Penske, then agreed to drive for him in the Memorial Day race this year and next. His car is virtually identical to Bet-tenhausens, a British-made McLaren, while Donohue has a Dan Gurney Eagle. All three are powered by turbo-charged four-cylinder Drake-Offenhau-ser engines.

John Len Fallon, American Softball Association commissioner for Montour County, has released a series of regulations governing ASA-sanctioned play. The Danville Softball League is associated with the ASA. The new regulations include the following: It is recommended that the pitchers mound have a 16-foot circle drawn from the pitchers plate with an eight-foot radius. -A shoe shall be considered official if it is made with either canvas or leather uppers or similar materials. The soles may be either smooth or with soft or hard rubber cleats. Ordinary metal sole and heel plates may be used if the spikes on the plates do not extend more than '4 inch from the sole or heel of the shoe.

The base runners must touch bases in legal order' first, second, third and home plate and when a bafee runner must return while the ball is in play he must touch the bases in reverse order. Effect of the rule is that the ball is in play and base runners must return with liability to be put out.

Voted into the Hall as Pioneer Players were Henry Seibels, a back on the 1898-99 Sewanee teams ; Robert Fisher, Harvard guard, 1909-11; Dr. Hube Wagner, Pittsburgh end, 1910-13; Arthur Howe, Yale quarterback, 1911; Early Toughey Abell, Colgate tackle, 1912-15, and Harold Balin, Princeton tackle, 1912-14. Also, John Maulbetsch, Michigan halfback, 1912-14; Murray Shelton, Cornell end, 1913-15; Forest "Spot Geyer, Oklahoma fullback, 1913-15; Aubrey Devine, Iowa quarterback, 1919-21; Gaylord Stinchcomb, Ohio State halfback, 1918-20, and Clarence Swanson, Nebraska end, 1919-1921. Dick Kazmaier, an All-America and Heisman Trophy winner from Princeton who heads the awards committee, said the Foundations executive committee has extended the Pioneer Player category to 1927 next year and to 1934 in 1975. This move was made to eliminate the combined Pioneer Player and Coach section and enable the Honors Court to judge all candidates on individual merits PITCHERS SWAPPED ST.

The drivers of the two sanctioning bodies will be on hand to compete In a Grand National East event, which will be highlighted with a 100-lap grind. Leading the NASCAR professionals onto the high banked half-mile dirt oval will be Bobby Allison, of Hueytown, Ala., and Dewayne (Tiny) Lund, of Cross, S. C., while Ron Hutcherson and Iggy Katona will carry .the colors of ARCA. Allison, who won 10 Grand National events last year on his way to becoming the leading money winner . in the organization, will be stopping off at Selinsgrove just two days after making his first-start in the Indianapolis 500. -Aftenajyixing 12th fastest for- the 1 ndy r long-time campaigner, is the leading contender for the speedways Rookie of the Year honors. Lund is no stranger to NASCAR followers, having competed in nearly every division the sanctioning body ever offered. Lund is a former Daytona 500 winner and in recent years copped two Grand American point titles. Hutcherson is the defending ARCA point champion, has campaigned on many half-mile dirt tracks across the country and participated at Daytona this season. Katona is no stranger to these parts as several years ago he raced in a 100-lap ARCA race and dominated the action until mechanical troubles forced him off the pace. That race, staged at Williams Grove Speedway, was won by Benny Parson, who is currently having the finest year ever in NASCAR competition. There is a friendly feud is a between the drivers of these two organizations and the feud will be carried onto Selinsgrove. The ARCA drivers feel they must take a back seat to the NASCAR regulars during Speed Weed at Daytona. But when they get on the half-mile tracks, the ARCA drivers like to beat back the challenges of NASCAR drivers. The action will begin at 7 p.m. with time trials. Rain date is, Thursday, May 31.
