Elder Statesman Is Dodger Key By JOE REICHLER Associated Press Sports Writer It is generally acknowledged that Sandy Koufax has Been consistently sensational, Don Drysdale has been sporadically spectacular and Ron Perranoski has been absolutely superb; But the key pitcher in the Los Angeles Dodgers' quest for their first National League perinant since 1959 is southpaw Johnny Podres, the elder statesman of the staff. The author of this sage observation is no less an authority than Alvin Dark, manager of San Francisco's defending champion Giants who today found themselves looking up at the run-away Dodger s from a fourth-place position eight full games below. It happened during the All-Star break. The Giants were then in second place, just three games behind the Dodgers. "Th« National League race will go right down to the wire again unless Podres stay s hot," Dark commented "But if he keeps on pitching like he has lately it will oe awfully tough to catch them." In the past eight days, Podres has added three victories extending hi s winning streak to five in a row for an over-all 9-6 record. His performance Thursday night in the Dodgers' 10-5 triumph over Pittsburgh was not as impeccable as were his other victories during the streak. But he allowed only one run until Roberto Clemente tagged him for a two-run home rin the seventh inning. By that time the Dodger s had built up a 10-3 lead and virtually were assured of protecting their e^-game margin over the runner, up Chicago Cubs, who earlier had beaten the Milwaukee Braves 3-2. Cincinnati defeated St. Louis 6-3 to drop the third-place Cardinals a game behind the Cubs. San Francisco clung to its one- game edge ove r the fifth-place Reds by coming from behind to nip the New York Met s 6-5 and Philadelphia trounced Houston 5-1. There were only three scheduled games in the American League. Minnesota whipped the league-leading New York Yankees 9-3, Boston beat Kansas City 10-6 and Baltimore outlasted Detroit 8-6 in 11 innings. >Maury Wills, back in hi s Most Valuable Player form of last year, drove in four runs with a single and double. Th e Dodgers hammered loser Earl Francis and four relievers for 14 hits but actually it was five unearned runs in a big sixth inning that proved to be the difference. Hunting Dates Now Standard PRATT — Kansas sportsmen wishing .to hunt prairie chickens, pheasant, and quail will now be able to plan their vacations and days off in a standard manner each year.

Quail season will traditionally open the third Saturday in November. Length of the seasons and the daily bag and possession limits, however, will be set in Seplem- ber, year by year.

Kansas Dove Dates Established Seven members of the Cincinnati Royals of the National Basketball Association played college ball in Ohio or nearby Kenlucky. Dick Donovan, a 20-game winner for the Cleveland Indians last season, turned in five shutouts. PRATT, Kan. (AP)—Kansas hunters will have a 60-day mourning dove season this fall, the Kansas Forestry, Fish and Game Commission reported today in announcing 1963 regulations. The season will run from Sept. 1 to Oct. 30, inclusive. Daily bag and possession limits are the only change from last year's regulations. Hunters will be permitted » daily bag limit of 10 and a possession limit, after opening day, of 20. This is two less than the daily bag limit for 1962. Shooting hours will be from one-half before sunrise to sunset. The framework of the dove hunting seasons foi the entire country is made up by the Department of the Interior since the mourning dove is a migratory bird. Kansas is in the Cenlral managemenl unit. Federal officials said surveys indicate that breeding populations of mourning doves are down slightly in the Eastern and Central management units for the third year in a row, resulting in the small reduction in bag limits. Figures compiled by the Kansas commission indicate an increase in the breeding population in Kansas of about three per cent over 1962. Other regulations announced: Rails and gallinuies—Five consecutive full days from Sept. 1 to Oct. 20, both dates inclusive. Bag and possession limits on Sora Rails, 25.
