"Stay in there, Duke, stay in there," Campanella counseled another old warhorse, Duke Snider. "This McDunicI has a fine curve. He's gonna curve him." Sure enough, Lindy McDanlel came in with his 'curve. Snider singled. An inning or two later, up stepped Ron Fairly, the Dodgers' npple-cheeked bonus baby. "He waits a little too long," said Campanella, squinting through the wire at the chunky lefthanded batter. "You can tell whether it's a ball or a strike as soon as it leaves the pitcher's hand." McDaniel let fly after an over hand windup. "Ball," said Campanella. Catcher Hal Smith leaned out for the pitch — high and outside. With one on in the top of the third, Cardinal second baseman Don Blasingame twisted a sacri fice bunt in front of the plate. Dodger catcher Johnny Roseboro scooped it up and first to first. "Should he have thrown to sec ond for the double play?" asked Kenny Washington, the former UCLA and Los Angeles Ram football great who was sitting at Cam panella's eblow. Campane'.la pursed his lips and shook his head from side to side. "He played it just right," said Campanella without taking his eyes off the man who has his ok catching job. "He's gonna make a good catcher," By ED WILKS Associated Preii Sports Writer The St. Louis Cardinals finally won one for new manager Solly Hemus. That leaves Pittsburgh's Pirates as the National League's only winless club, Hemus, making the shift from utility infielder to skipper, put Stan Muslal back on first base Tuesday night at Los Angeles after the Cards had lost their first three games at home. Stan the Man (l-for«l«) was hitless, but his replacement In left, field, Chuck Essegian, paid off wifti a run- scoring double In a «-2 decision over the Dodgers. In the other NL night game, ex-Buc Bob Purkey became the season's first two-game winner by taking his fifth in a row from Pittsburgh in a 8-2 victory at Cincinnati. That fcft the Pirates, with an 0-4 recrj'. Milwaukee's champion Braves (3-0) became the lone unbeaten club In the NL with a 10-inning, 4-3 victory over Philadelphia. The Chicago Cubs spilled San Francisco to a first defeat 5-2. Right-hander Lindy McDaniel, he elder half of the Cards bonus brothers who went sour last year, gave up seven hits, walked but one and, had the Dodgers shut out for seven innings. It was his first victory 'and complete game since beating the Dodgers at Los Angeles last June 30. Southpaw Johnny Podres, who had an 11-4 record at the Coliseum last season, was the loser. An error, Es- seglan's double and Hal Smith's ,wo-run homer wrapped it up for the Cards in a three-run .sixth. Gil Hodges homered for the Dodgers in the ninth. With crippled Roy Campanella on hand, the Dodgers drew 61,552 for their home opener, That's a single night game record in the NL. ROBERT F. KNIGHT, Ottawa University senior from Horton, has accepted a contract as head coach at Overbrook High School. Knight is a three-sport as well as of the "0" letterman at being president Club. He holds (he school records in the 440 and 880 and has been named to all-c 0 inference football and basketball teams. He will coach football, basketball and track at Overbrook. Purkey, the right-hander who went to the Reds from Pittsburgh two winters ago, followed up his opening day decision over the Pirates with a seven-hit performance that included five strikeouts and a lone walk. George Witt, who had won seven straight and hadn't allowed the Reds a run in two previous decisions as a rookie was tagged for a solo homer by Vada Pinson and a two-run shot by Ed Bailey.

With an enthusiasm befitting hi; 18 years, the gangling Boston Uni versity freshman, whose goal is an Olympic gold medal, today jus wants to get out of Massachusetts Memorial Hospital and on his fee again. "The doctor tells me the skin graft will be done toward the enc of the week—possibly Friday," the sensational Negro athlete said. John bettered the recognized world high jump mark in February with a leap of 7 feet, 1V\ inches. 'After the job is done I'll be here another week to 10 days," John added. "I'll be able to walk as soon as I'm released, though probably on crutches at first. From that time I figure it will take a month — maybe less — for me to get back to high jumping Skiing Most Hazardous Of Popular Sports LONDON (AP) — Soft snow is more dangerous to fall into than an opponent's hard..fist, said a London physician today. Of all amateur sports, skiing causes more injuries per participant than any other. Boxing- maligned and campaigned against —is only the eighth most dangerous, according to the physician, Dr. j. L. Blonstein, possibly.the world's leading authority on box ing injuries, said in an interview that he determined the rankings of sports as injury causes, after studying thousands of accidents, 'alls, blows and crashes. Dr. Blonstein's conclusions were based only on British figures but said he felt they would apply roughly in the same order in many other countries. He did not take into account injuries in American football. In Britain, rugby and soccer—third cousins to football—ranked second and third in injuries. Track and field, swimming, automobLe racing, horseback riding—including jumping, and hunting all were found to cause more injuries than boxing. "In such sports as track and field and swimming," said Dr. Blonstein, "the preponderance ol injuries are in the nature of pulled muscles and in strains." The commonest boxing injury was simple nose bleeding. Most out injuries were about the eyes EDDIE BENDER, Ottawa University senior, has been named junior high coach at Garnett.

Vernon, acquired from Cleveland last weekend, singled home the tying run in the ninth. O'Brien, the former Phil, then provided the payoff in the 10th, joining Hank Aaron and Wes Covington in a string of consecutive singles off losing reliever Dick Farrell. Ernie Banks, last year's major league leader in home runs and runs batted in, broke loose for jiis first homers of the season for the Cubs, ripping Jack Sanford for a pair of two-run shots at San Francisco. Dave Hillman was the winner, although Don Elston had to get the final out. Felipe Alou homered for San Francisco's runs in the second inning. Thomas got his left foot caught in an elevator door March 24. He was returned to the hospital from the BU infirmary by Dr. Chester Howe for the graft intended to hasten the recovery.

(AP)-As fac- toriejs continue to spring up throughout rural America in an era of industrial expansion, the hunter without private lands of his own finds fewer and fewer places to stalk game. One answer has been created in the private shooting preserve where you put your money on the line for the privilege, of busting a bird under conditions virtually duplicating the natural element. Thirty-eight states, including South Carolina, now legalize this type' of private enterprise. Since the South Carolina Legislature acted last year, one pre. serve in Union County opened for business and another will this year in Pickens, The Union layout consists of 200 acres, planted in corn, lespedeza and a variety of sorghums to provide coyer and a final condemned bird's meal for pen-rained pheasants, cnukars and quail, Twin Bill Completes Baseball Tournament RICHMOND - A double-header this afternoon completed action in the Richmond Invitational High School baseball tournament. Action opened with a noon semifinal game between Richmond and Rantoul. Immediately following, the winner met Princeton for the crown. Princeton moved into the finals with a 4-3 win over Greeley, Tuesday. Dick Fishburn went t h e rout for the winners, while Steve Wheeler was tagged with the loss for Greeley. The birds are brought up in long ugh enclosures and are exercised daily so that they wKl fly as well as their unfettered cousins in the wilds. The hunting area is stocked from the pens before each hunt. DORS are provided, and a gunner with half an eye can be pretty sure he'll get to shoot about as many birds as he can pay for. The price may be out of reach of some bankrolls—a $15.00 minimum with pheasants going at $4.50 each, quail at $2.50, and chukars at $3.50 each. Flights of mallards are also brought into a! small lake at $4.50 a duck. While the expense may be ai drawback, preserve shooting has these obvious advantages. 1. A hunter can be certain that he won't return home after walking for miles without seeing game. 2. A busy man can get in about as much shooting on a preserve in two hours as he is likely to see all day in the wilds. 8. Hunters have the opportunity of shooting game that is not native to their areas.
