The View from Here ED HAYES THIS IS A BIG TIME OF YEAR FOR FUTURES. I'm not talking about the kind of futures Burton Settoon at the Board of Trade dispenses. This is graduation week but I'm not concerned with that type future, either—not at this writing, anyway. I choose today to deal in the oldfashioned business of predicting the future. It looks like an interesting summer and wouldn't it be interesting to know just what it held? . No, I don't want to look into anyone's private pleasures and pains. Shoot, I don't even want to mess around with my own. Sports futures, that's my beat * * * The outdoor year of 1967 might look something like this.

It Figures: Willie Mays Bunts * * * * * * • * * * Tigers on Top, Orioles on the Move By MURRAY CHASS Associated Press Sporti Writer When Willie Mays hits a home run, that's predictable. When Willie Mays makes a great catch, that's predictable. When Willie Mays wins a ball game singlehandedly, that's predictable. Then there are the times Willie Mays is unpredictable. Like the other day when he dropped a fly ball. Or Monday night when he bunted. The bunt helped San Francisco more than the dropped fly ball did. !n fact it helped the Giants beat Philadelphia 3-1. The play came in the ninth inning with the game tied 1-1, runners at first and second and none out. "I bunted on my own," Willie explained afterward. "Jim Bunning is a tough pitcher. I've never hit him very well, and I lad already struck out three times. We needed only one run, and I got McCovey and Hart coming behind me. All it takes s a fly ball." * * * Bunning charged off the mound and scooped up the bunt, mt he threw high to second ,rying for a force out and the •tiants had the bases loaded. Just as Mays figured, McCo- isy got the ball in the air, but it was a foul pop, and now it was Hart's turn. The third baseman came through, lashing a double o left field that drove in two runs and won the game. What thought Herman Franks, the growly green Giant, tf Mays' bunt? * * * "Heck, it's » 1-1 ball game, and we figure we need only one un," the manager said. "I don't mind if he bunts." No one, except the opposition, eally can mind anything Mays ,oes. In the only other National ,eague games Pittsburgh ' de- eated Houston 3-1 and New York downed Los Angeles 5-2. * * * Hart's hit also brought Gay- ord Perry his first victory since April 13.

(AP) The late Babe Zaharias, greatest woman athlete ever in the Jnited States, is honored each •ear in her home town with a golf tournament in her name. Members of the Ladies 'rofessional Golf Association ild enough to have played with Babe on the tour would rather win this one than just about any hey play. "Without Babe Zaharias the ladies' tour wuldn't be as big as it is today," said Marilyn Smith after winning the $10,000 event Monday. 'I really wanted to win this tournament," she added. "Babe and I were good friends and she meant a lot to me." » * » Miss Smith, whose three- stroke, first-round lead vanished in Sunday's wind and cold, came back with a par 70 at Bayou Din Golf Club Monday to win the $1,500 first prize Monday. She had 210 for the 54 holes. Kathy WMtworth, whose three-under-par 9 in the second round gave her a one-stroke lead, slipped to a 74 Monday and finished with 213. She was tied by defending champion Shirley Englenorn, who also finished with a 70. lies to five hits, including a single by Tony Gonzalez and Rich Alien's double that gave Philadelphia its run in the first inning. Tommie Sisk pitched a four- hitter against Houston and helped extend Chris Zachary's winless streak to five. Willie Stargell got the big blow off Zachary, a two-run homer in the sixth inning. The Astros scored in the sixth on Ron Davis's triple and Joe Morgan's single. The Mete lashed four Los Angeles pitchers for 12 hits, Ed Charles collecting four singles and Tommy Davis three. Charles singled home a fifth- inning run that put New York ahead to stay. Home runs by Ron Fairly and Willie Davis were two of the Dodgers' five hits off Tom Seaver. By DICK COUCH Associated Press Sports Writer Baltimore's Tom Phoebus, who started going places when he returned home, has given the wandering Orioles a new look at their old neighborhood. Phoebus, a Baltimore native who came up from the minors late last year and pitched shutouts in his first two starts, blanked the New York Yankees 7-0 on two hits Monday night, lifting the Orioles back to the .500 level after a three-week subterranean flight. The 25-year old right-hander, who lives less than two miles from Baltimore's Municipal The Slugger Is a Girl couldn't play in the official Lit CHARLOTTE, N.C. (AP) One of the stars of the unbeaten Junior Hornets baseball team is girl. Charlene Rowe, an 11-year-old fifth-grader, has caught and pitched in the first two games won by the otherwise all-boy team she organized herself when she was ruled ineligible for a local Little League team. She walked five times in the first of the two games the team rias won against regular Little Leaguers in games they don't count. "I'm sorta' short (4-foot-6) and the pitchers have trouble getting the ball over the plate when I'm batting," she explained. But in the next game the pitchers apparently got the ball >ver the plate. Charlene belted three hits in a 7-0 victory in which she caught the first half of the game, then switched to the mound. Coach Jack Williams says, : She's as good as any of the boys. And none of the boys ^ye play against kids her at all. The know they can't beat her." Charlene comes by her baseball talent naturally. Her father, Ralph Rowe, formerly played with the Southern League Charlotte Hornets. He now manages Orlando in the Florida State League. "He taught me how to play," said Charlene of her father. "He taught me how to hold the ball, to throw it and how to hit." Charlene became an organizer last year when told she Is Your Lawn Mower Dogging Around? If So ... Let An Expert Pep It Up.
