Lane Has Minoso Where He Wants Him United Press International Frank Lane has been waiting a long time to collect from Minnie Minoso, and it looks like he finally has the happy-go-lucky Cleveland outfielder right where he "ants him. Chasing Minnie around each spring, first to get him to sign his contract and then to report to training camp on time, is old hat with Lane, the general manager of the Indians. Lane gave up the chase a few years ago when he switched over to the National League, but Minoso. who has more alibis than a long-shot horse player, hasn't changed a bit since he and Lane both were w<th the Chicago White Sox. But this time it figures to cost him. Minoso, who plays winter ball in his native Cuba in addition to taking care of more problems than an executive of a business concern, according to him. finally caught up to the Indians at Phoenix, Ariz., Sunday — exactly five days later than the deadline Lane had set for him. "Beeiy" Fixing House According to up to a $500 fine, $100 for each day. According to Minoso, there were <as usual' extenuating circumstances. "I'm beezy fixing up my house in Cuba," Minnie explained However, Lane, whom Minoso, calls "my No. 2 papa," has been listening to Minnie's excuses since he first bought him from the Indians for the White Sox back in 1951. Meanwhile, Minoso or no Minoso, the Indians took advantage of a base on balls by Paul Giel with the bases full in the eighth inning to defeat the San Francisco, Giants, 3-2. Vic Power went four- for-four in the exhibition to spark the attack. Two run homers by Hank Sauer and Rocky Colavito took care of the earlier scoring before Giel passed pitcher John-, ny Briggs in the eighth. Danielson-White Ferrari Wins 2000 cc.

Ken Miles of Hollywood was top overall winner in a Porsche Spy- der. The race was a heartbreaker for] Bill Krause when his 4.5 Maserati blew a tire on the final lap after leading for more than an hour. Bruce Kessler of Beverly Hills] was in ninth spot after 10 laps when his Sadler Mark II spun wildly into the area of the judges' stand. Kessler was thrown several hundred feet.

In the first inning Moon tapped Robin Roberts for a lead off single, and veteran Duke Sni der doubled to drive Moon home to give the Dodgers a 1-0 lead.

Zanjero was third. The winning payoff was $22.20. ARCADIA, Calif. (UPI) — Bug Brush, one of C. V. Whitney's two great fillies, seeks to provo her superiority over the top handicap horses at Santa Anita today for the second time in the $50,000 San Bernardino Handicap. Last Saturday, the other filly. Silver Spoon, ran away with the S147,300 Santa Anita Derby to be come the first filly in 20 years to win that race. In today's race a field of eight was entered but so far as most observers were concerned it was a two horse race between Bug Brush and Terrang. winner of the S145,0O0 Santa Anita Handicap nine days ago. Bug Brush has won four straight stakes at the meeting and a vie-, tory today would undoubtedly make her the horse of the meeting. In Saturday's derby, Silver Spoon came on in the stretch to score a two and a half length victory over Royal Orbit as she was made the 3-2 choice of the huge crowd of 57,300. The pace setting Fightin Indian lasted for third and Tuleg was fourth while the entry of Ole Fols and Finne gan finished out of the money. The victory was worth S95.300 to Whitney and it was the first time in racing history that a three-year-old filly has won a 3100,000 added race. Morse .425. The team mark was an excellent .409. In free throw accuracy, Morse hit 51 of 63 for .810 per cent one of the best marks in the nation. Pejsa was .788, Smith .787, and Eiles .758, for other fine percentages. The team had a good 703 mark. Pejsa paced the club in rebounding with a 7.7 average per game, followed by Vorpagel at 6.9. The season's scoring high was 91 points against Occidental while Morse turned in the top individual scoring mark with a brilliant 25- point effort against the powerful St. Mary's Gaels. The Bulldogs lose seniors Pejsa, Smith, Kelly, Mike Johnson, Jim Motter and Dave Fitzsimons through graduation, b u t eight players return, including first stringers Morse, Eiles and Vorpagel. Jim Quast, two-year let terman, will be another valuable returnee in the center position. Others returning will be Dan Ayala, Bot Litwiller, Brian Marshall, and Dick Cobb. Coach Lee Fulmer feels next year's ball club will be considerably stronger than this year's team. Reason for such optimism is that at least four top prospects are moving up from the league champion frosh team which posted an 18-2 season mark and was 8-0 in conference play. High hope? are pinned on Jack Schroeder, 6-6 center who shattered the frosh scoring record with 340 points for a 17.0 average. With Schroeder and 6-7 Vorpagel in the lineup together, the Bulldogs could be rough on the boards. With Morse and Eiles in the back- court, speed and deadly shooting would be the result.
