The hard-hitting 23-year-old Davis Cupper from Santurce was drawn to play Spain's Manuel Santana, the reigning champion, in the first round. The champion traditionally leads off the tournament on center court. Pasarell has had tough luck in the Wimbledon draw in the last States was eliminated by Ecuador. The two Americans flew to England last week and go into Wimbledon without any tournament practice on grass. Riches's first round opponent was Ronald Barnes of Brazil. Graebner played Nikola Spear weeks, with the men's singles Roy Emerson of Australia. That was in the third round. Pasarell lost in three straight sets. The bookies have made Emerson the even money favorite to win the title for the third tune in four years. Santa is seconc ame he was not suppposed to )lay. If it had been a hot day, I wouldn't have played him," said Manager Leo Durocher after his earn ran its winning streak to six, longest in four years . Former relievers Bill Hands and Niekro, who probably would not have been starting at all if Ken Holtzman had not been called into the Army, pitched heir first complete games in he major leagues. Hands yielded only five hits in the opener after failing 27 times in two years to go the distance. Niekro, a rookie making his fifth start, set the Astros down on three singles in the second <ame. Don Lock drove the nail into the Cardinals, knocking in six runs with six hits, including two ,wo-run homers. His first clout capped a three-run fifth inning in the first game for a 5-2 lead. His second gave Philadelphia 20 lead in the nightcap and [he Phils used four of five St. Louis errors to add six unearned runs. Matt Alou sliced two singles and a home run and Manny Jimanez added a honor as the Pirates dealt the Reds their sixth Last week's London Grass Court championships at Queen's Club did nothing except confuse Wimbledon prospects. Santana and Emerson were both tumbled out of the tburna ment by players who are no seeded for Wimbledon. So were two other Wimbledon seeds Cliff Drysdale of South Africa No. 5, and Bill Bowrey of Aus f Yugoslavia. The tournament lasts two windy day. During most of the game. the wind blew straight in from centerfield toward home plate. As a result, curve balls didn't curve much for any pitcher except Jordan, the last of three men in for the Hills. The side-armer had live stuff and most of it seemed to come to the plate by way of first base. inal on Friday, July 7 and the I the face of the wind. ither finals July 8.

The Casons only got seven ,.__.— ,-, hits and of all batters on both wiched around a walk to Wil- ball clubs, only Blytheville's liams. Stan Williams could drive the ball out toward the fences in unto. So, while going 0-5, he still was hitting the ball very well. Until Coach Dwight emptied his bench in the seventh, Blytheville had scored in every inning. Walks, errors and good Blytheville base running frustrated Sylvan Hills. Phil Morrow wound up a free- swinging weekend by going two for five yesterday. He had seven hits in the three games with the North Little Rock club. * * * Saturday night, the Casons won the first 6-4 and salvaged the second, 2-9. Ronnie Howell with help from Tommy Kelly pitched a six-hitter in the opener. A second- inning home run was the major source of damage, although the visitors pecked away throughout the game. Blytheville had a bid third inning Men Howell singled, Williams walked and Jim Wagner's double was followed by Searcy Mears' single. All this produced four runs. The Casons added two in the sixth on singles by Morrow, Wagner and Pat Harper, sand- Bobby George was working very well and had a shut-out going into the fifth. Then he tired and before the inning ended five runs were in. There was more trouble in the seventh when the visitors got three. The Casons put up four in the first and six in the fourth. In the opening inning, Lee Forrestier and Morrow led off with singles and came home on Wagner's triple. Harper scored Wagner with a double and eventually scored on Mears' single. Forrestier opened the fourth with a walk and Morrow followed with another single. Wagner walked, Harper doubled and Greg Buys homered. Mears singled and came around on Aubrey Bell's double. * * * In that freakish second game, the Casons again called on Russell K. Marr Salesman Tom Little REALTY Ph. PO 2-2323 Let vs sell your bouse.

He eliminated Emerson and Bowrey. Santana was knocked out by Ray Moore of South Africa. For the first time ever, the United States did not have one played seeded in the men's singles at Wimbledon. Davis Cuppers Cliff Richey, of San Angelo, Tex., and Clark Graebner of Beachwood, Ohio, were the best bets to restore America's declining reputation. Both played in the disastrous Davis Cup match at Guayaquil last week, when the United loss in eight starts and left them yk games behind St. Louis. Herb Gets Gcslento for Japs "We need a stronger team i In the opener, Herb has given against those Japs," Wrestling Promoter Herb Welch said last week following the Tamayo Soto and Great Yamaha victory over Joe and Bill Sky. This week, Herb figures he's j got it — a stronger team. "Three weeks ago Mario Galento gave these guys a tough tune," Herb reported. "So I got Red Roberts to go with him against the Japs. We'll see what they can do with this- team." Ail this action will be tomorrow night in American Legion Arena. the card an unusual twist. "Buddy Chandler wanted to box Bob Hamby, but H a m b y just wouldn't go for that," Welch said. "So I suggested that they both pul on boxing gloves and then they can wrestle or hit each other or do anything they want." Chandler is a former boxer and has had a thing going with Hamby.
