ford Pitches 12th Straight Win , sports slate By BOB GREEN Associated Press Sports Writer "The catchers are carrying tlrts ball club," said Yankee catcher E 1st on Howard. "We've trot the best infield in\ baseball," said Ralph Honk. Yankee manager. "New York's got that great overall power," said Johnny Pesky, Red Sox manager. "They've come up with a couple of fine young pitchers in Al Downing and Jim Bouton," said Bill Rigney, Los Angeles manager. So maybe they've all forgotten Whitey Ford? At least no one seems to be talking about him. Ah, well, maybe there's no reason to. He's jusit won 12 in a row, 16 in all and, as usual, is shouldering the burden of the important pitching chores as the Yankees go bombing along toward another pennant. The 34-year-old left-hander was no more excited than a business man is walking to the office Vednesday as he turned in vorkman-like 8-4 victory over the Los Angeles Angels, the Yanks ixth straight. He allowed only ix hits and struck out eight be- ore giving way to a pinch hitter after seven innings. Minnesota's Twins got good pitching performances from Dick Stigman and Jim Kaat in a double banking of Cleveland, 9-0 and 5-0; Kansas City swept two from Bos on, 5-2 and 7-6; Baltimore over a me a four-run deficit and beai kVashington 8-5, and Chicago de eated Detroit 3-1. In the National League, the Los Angeles Dodgers stretched their ead to seven full games in a 5-1 riumph over Pittsburgh while Milwaukee bombed St. Louis 8-1. Tile Chicago Cubs edged Cincinnati 2-1, Philadelphia shaded Houston 6-3 and San Francisco rallied for three run s in the ninth to beat New York's Mets 4-3. Ford's victory put him in a tie with the Dodgers' Sandy Koufax and the Giants' Juan Marichal as the majors' top winner of the season. And he extended his own mark as the most consistent winner in the history of the game among pitchers who have won 100 or, more. His lifetime mark of 191-74 for a percentage of .721 leads the all-time .'is'. Spud Chandler is next at 109-43, .717. John Blanchard, a converted catcher, pressed into service in the Yanks' injury-riddled outfield, once again provided the big hitting. He drove in four runs on a homer and two singles and scored twice. TIIURSl'AY Tlirefl tnen's league slow-pitch noftball games at Fansler Field.

Milburn Stone who plays Doc Adams in the show has been one of our favorite television performers. Thus, you can imagine what a thrill it was to get to take him on a fishing trip recently. "Doc" as he is affectionately known to his millions of television fans is a fabulous charac- er. It was a big moment in our .ife to get to fish with him. You {now how it is as you watch some one do'wn through the years as they play a part, you wonder what they ar e like in real life. In television people come right into your living roam each week and you feel like you ought to know them. We .felt that way about the stars of Gunsmoke. We never dreamed that we would get to meet them much less get to fish with them. A few years back when Doc, Kitty and Chester were appear ing at the J-Bar-H rodeo at Camdenton. Mo., we got to meet them. Then on Lake of the Ozarks Bonnie and I got to fish with Doc and Kitty. They were the kind of people we hoped they would be. They were nice to us and nice to everybody. When we learned that Dos genuinely liked to fish we Invit ed him back for a fishing trip to Canada. He said that he woult love it, if he could get the time, The vrars rolled on. His sche'd ule war heavy and so was ours, Wo wanted, to take him to Gods Lake in Manitoba in early July. This posed a problem be cause the summer months are z busy time for the Gunsmok crew. It was especially difficul for hin. to know in advance when he might get'a few days tha he was not needed in the script This past snring we set up tentative s for the last week of June. It looked for a tim that we VA-ukto't get to make il Last week after some juggling o dates we did make it. Doc flew into Kansas City, spent the nigh with us and the next day wi flew to International Falh There we met our boy Dusty anc Doc's friend, Preston Clark o Wichita, Kans., who had flown on ahead of us. One of Barney Lamm's pilot's Tommy Sigerson, flew us to Ihei base camp at Kanuchuan Rap ids to fish Gods Lake, We want ed Doc to get the fishing that w though would thrill him most That is why we chose Barne; Lamm's operation on God Lak to start the trip. We have had many excitin, trip? to God s Lake. Each tim it seems we get a greater thrill We love the country and w .knew Doc would love it too It's wild and rugged beauty ha a strange attraction to us. While only some four hundred miles from Kenora, Ontario, it gives you the same feeling of remot- ness that you get at the Arctic Circle. There is no way that we could get tired of any part of a Pag* 3 Giiritaii City T Thursday, July 25, 1963 Sherman's Grill, Packers Score Important Wins Sherman's Grill and Smith 'ackers scored Important wins at Chet Cleaver Field here Wednesday night during a Southwest Cansas league women's softball double-header.

A contest with W hits, Including 27 by one team. That was (he "menu" at Fan- slcr Field here Wednesday night during « men's slow-pitch softball league, triple-header. In the opener, Church of the Nazarcne defeated Welder* Sup-' ply, 13-0, with an eight-run fifth Inning. Welders (hen topped St. .lames Lutheran Church, 22-17. in an elght-lnnlnn game with A football-like score. Tho nightcap saw Lutherans Irst Methodist Church, 10-1.

Big frame for th 0 winners wns Iio fifth when eight runs came n on eight hits and four Welders rrori. ip there, either the fishing or ic traveling. The flight from Kenora to •Canuchuan is an experience that ou'll never forget, as is each ight out for a day fishing, 'lying the bush country is real- f something. Barney has many great pilots and such men as Rex Kiley and Doug Cameron ar c a legend in flying the bush. The weather was perfect when e arrived at the rapids camp. Doc thrilled to every moment of .he trip. He sat up with the plots on each flight with his eyes soaking in every inch of the wild northland. The fishing was tremendous. Doc caught walleye, northern and lake trout in numbers you would hardly believe. This was IMS first taste of fishing in Candian waters but he caught on quickly.' He has quick reflexes and a soft touch, the thing it takes to make a good fisherman. Lake trout on light tackle thrilled him most. He got the touch quickly and the fish were really wild. Then we had some fantastic walleye fishing on ultra-light tackle. You wouldn't have beliv ed it had you been there. Really it was just that great. We didn't get to make Gods River for trout, on account of fog, the day we planned but reserved thai for the next time Doc comes back to fish with us. to spend the last two days at We left the Gods Lake fishing Barney's Ball Lake Lodge. There we had some great lake trout fishing. Again /Doc could hardly believe his eyes at the accomp clations, the service, the scenic beauty and the fishing. It thrilled us to see him get such pleas ure our of the trip. W e just hope that he will come back and fish with us again. He is a great guy. He loves the out doors and he loves to fish. We cannot think of anyplace that of fars more of that than Gods Country, with Barney's crew. As we have said so many times would take a lot of that kind o living to make us sick!
