Eddy Southern's anchor man Work was the big factor. East Texas State dominated the cbllege division with record per f6rmarices of 1:254 in the 880 and :4l.l in the 440. Sid Gart6n was the mainspring.

(.APT - The unt continues for a sure • fire avorite In Saturday's wide-op^n K^tuclcy Derby at Church in Downs. But the Derby Trial Tues- ay with a probable field of 18 hould provide some clues. Eighteen trafnerg indicate they want one tact look «t ttteir colts n the on*-mile derby trial. How hey do in the trial may determine nether they go to the post tor the 5th running of the derby. The trial will include some of e more respected three-year-olds n America. And should 16 start, he race probably would be bro- en tip into two divisions — for the first time in its history. First Landing, the two-year-old hamp, heads thd probable start- rs hi the trial. Also included are )unce, second to Tomy Lee In the Blue Grass Stakes; Troilus, Flamingo winner; Our Dad, third In the Wood Memorial but showing a tfwefful drive in the stfetch, arid Jan Anita Derby winner Finnegan. M&nk's Hood and Royal Orbit, ecohd arid third in the 1 Santa Derby, also are contenders. Sword Dancer, fresh from Saturday's stepping Stone Purse vie- ory; Blue Grass champ Tomy jee; Atoll arid Quantreli probably will wait out the week without 'ompetiHdn before g"6ing in (he derby. But Florida Derby winner Easy Spur is a question mark, as is Calumet Farm's On-and-On and C. W. Whitney's filly Silver Spoon. Easy Spur, second to Sword Jancer Saturday, came 1 up lame n his right front ankle Sunday. On-and-On, seeking an unprecedented third straight derby vic- 6ry for Calumet; remains a very doubtful starter after finishing ourth in the Stepping Stone, trainer Jimmy Jones said a back ailment may have recurred. Silver Spoon, undefeated before coming in third behind Sword )ancer and Easy Spur Saturday, has not been committed to the derby or the Kentucky Oaks, the so-called derby for filfies. By JOE REICHLEU Associated Prc*s sports Writer The Baltimore Orioles, their chests expanded by four straight iriumphs over the New York Yankees, arc only a game out of first )laco today and Manager Paul Richards can give thanks to his prized pinch hitters. Fbur of Richards' emergency aatters came through Sunday to help the Orioles sweep a doubleheader from the Yankees 8-4 and 8-2. The two defeats dropped Casey Stengel's world champs into the second division for the frist time in four years. In 14 games this year Baltimore pinch hitters have contributed 15 hits in 35 official times at bat. That's a v .429 batting average. It's riot surprising th'eh that the Orioles haVe won nine arid lost only five. The Chicago White Sox stunned Cleveland twice, 6-5 and 5-2, trimming the Indians' first place margin to only one game. Veterans Early Wynn and Pierce were Ihe winning pitchers as the White Sox remained in a second place tie with the Orioles. Kansas City moved past New York into fourth place with a 4-3 triumph over Detroit's Tigers, who dropped their sixth in a row arid their 12th in 13 games. Washington made it two in a row over Boston, winning 2-1 on homers by Roy Sivers arid Jirn Lemon. 'rom first place in the. National League, outscoring the Braves 11- JO, as Los Angeles took over the ;op rung with a 1^-1 i victory over St. Louis. San Francisco's Giants climbed into a virtual second place tic with Milwaukee, shading he Chicago Cubs 3-2. Pittsburgh split with Philadephia, the Pirates winning the opener 9-2 and Philadelphia taking the second, io-b. Ninth inning rallies were responsible for both Baltimore victories over New York, Trailing 4-3, the Orioles scored twice in the ninth of the opener. Gene Wpodling singled and Chico Carrasqiiel walked. Pinch hitter Jim Finigari's single scored Woodling with the tying run. Brooks Robinson's single scored Finigan with the winning run. can play MUSIC ... WITHOUT LESSONS Cincinnati bounced Milwaukee Pierce helped their own cause against Cleveland with importan base hits. Wynn doubled home tw of his team's six runs in the fiftl nning. of the opener arid they >roved to be the decisive tallies le needed help, however, from Gerry Staley, who hurled four run ess innings. Pierce allowed the Indians eight hits in the nightca and got three himself, a triple double and single. He drove in Lwo runs. Bob Cerv- clouted his * secon three-run homer in two days, t give Kansas City's Bob Grim hi Third victory against one defeat. The Tigers collected 16 hits but left 15 on base. Bill Fischer won his first game" for Washington. The only run he allowed was unearned. It came in the ninth after he had extended his shutout streak to 16 innings. Whitey Ford, who had taken over in the ninth to protect a one- run lead for the Yankees, was the victim of the assault. Baltimore scored its three other runs in the seventh as singles by pinch hitters Whitey Lockman and Al Pilarcik set up the scores, the two teams set a major league record by using ten pinch hitters. Hoyt Wilheim perrintted the Yankees only five hits in the nightcap, outpitching Duke Maas. Robinson's leadoff double in the ninth, followed by an infield out and Billy Klaus' sacrifice fly, gave the veteran knuckleball artist his second triumph without a defeat; Catcher Gus Triandos was charged with four passed, balls, equalling a league mark, trying to handle Wilheim's butterfly pitch.

The Dodgers took over the top rung Sunday by defeating the St. Louis Cardinals in a football score, 17-11, while Cincinnati was edging the Milwaukee Braves in a pitchers' duel—14 of 'em—11-10. Charlie Neat had a perfect 5- for-5 and Gil Hodges drove in five runs but another pair of Dodgers —Carl Furillo and Don Zimmer— knocked in six between them. You may remember that Zimmer, thinking he was being sidetracked for the regular shortstop berth at the start of the season, asked the Dodgers to play him or trade him. His three-run homer Sunday featured a five - run third inning that routed starter Vinegar Bend Mizell. Only last week, Furillo, irked at being benched, made a similar demand. Returned to action Sunday, he whacked four hits and drove in three runs to assure rookie Gene Snyder of his first major league triumph. The veteran Snider, who has been the bell-cpw in past Dodger pennant drives, has been sitting on the bench with Don Demeter taking over his center field position.
