THE REGISTER-NEWS — MT. VERNON, ILLINOIS TUESDAY, AUGUST 6, 1963 Dodgers Gain While Resting Colts Whip Giants Ami Cardinals Tie For 2nd By BOB GREEN tssoclated Press Sports Writer Woodeshick and Warwick may sound like a vaudeville team but they amuse the San Francisco Gl< ants not at all. In fact, there was only gloom ill the Giants' dressing room after the Colt's Hal Woodeschlck and Carl Warwick finished their act at Houston Monday night. It wasn't a standard performance. Each did something he ei ther didn't want to do or wasn't expected to do. But when it was all over, they were the key Agues in Houston's 63 victory over the Giants in the only game scheduled in the major leagues. Wcodeshick, a relief pitcher, gave up a home run to Willie Mays, something relief pitchers don't like to do. But he came out of it the winner. And Warwick, a light-hitting out fielder, was inserted for defensive purposes in the eighth when Houston had a 4-2 lead. But he wound up the offensive star, driving dn the winning run with two-out single in the ninth. The loss spoiled the Giants' hopes of making up a little gound on National League-leading Los Angeles and dropped them back to a tie for second with St. Louis, five games off the pace. The Colts, leading 4-2, appeared to be on the way to an easy victory when starter Don Nottebart ran into trouble in the eighth. Willie McCovey led off with his 33rd homer of the season and Mays followed with a single. Woodeshick came on, making his 39th appearance of the'season. A single by Orlando Cepeda and a Colt error let in the tying run, but Woodeshick struck out the last two men to end the inning. He struck out two more in the top of the ninth before Mays crashed his 28th homer into the left centerfield stands for a $-4 Giants lead. For Stretch Drive Cards Get 2 Pitchers, Drop Two [Western Auto Takes Lead In Softball Race NEW YORK (AP) - The St, Louis Cardinals, in third place with eyes on the top, play the New York Mets tonight after acquiring two new pitchers Monday, Curt Simmons (10-5), one of the Redbirds' steadiest, will face Galen Cisco (7-9). "It's getting late," Cardinal manager Johnny Keane said. "But we have a chance to pick up ground." The Redbirds bought Ken MacKenzie, 29, from the Mets and pulled up Sam Jones from Atlanta. Jones, 9-13 for the Card fam club, still holds the St. Louis one-season strikeout record of 225. Jones set the record for the Redbirds in 1958 When the Cardinals brought Jones up, they sent relief pitcher Bob Humphreys to Atlanta. General manager Bing Devine sai done other hurler had to go to make room for MacKenzie and he put righthander Ed Bauta (3-| 4) on waivers. The mets picked !„ . ..

Old Negro Players Were Greatest, Says Simpson By DICK MTPTMAN Newspaper Enterprise Assn. COLUMBUS, Ohio — (NEA) —As the charter bus carrying the Indianapolis Indians chugged along busy U. S. 40 Harry (Suitcase) Simpson talked of other bus rides and other days when he was a recruit in the Negro Leagues. "It was a tough life," he said. "Sometimes you'd play in five cities in five nights and never see a bed. We thought nothing of playing three games in the same day. A lot of times on holidays we'd play a double header at the Polo Grounds in the afternoon, then drive 60 or 70 miles to some little town in New York and play that night. We played every day.

By JIM BECKER LONDON" (AP)-One of the best and youngest,- American track teams splH up today, with important international experience tucked away for the future and four victories in the record book. John Pennel of Miami, Fla., who has snapped the world pole vault record six times this year, and three times in a little more thani three weeks, set his latest mark,' 16 feet, 10& inches, on Monday on the final day of the two-day meet with Britain. \ It broke his mark of 16-8% set in the same stadium July 13, and bettered by a fraction of an inch his showing in Warsaw July 26. The Yanks got off to a bad start on the four-meet European trip, and had to battle back to salvage a 119-114 victory over the Soviet Union in Moscow, but then they got rolling. They took the Poles 125-83 and West Germany 141-82 before coming to London. The U.S. coach, Payton Jordan, shuffled his forces throughout the four meets, with an eye to getting maximum international experience for the team. "This was a real young team- half of them had never been abroad before," Jordan said. "They got better as they went along, and the young fellows got running experience that will be valuable at the Russian meet next year and the Tokyo Olympics." Robert Hayes and Henry Carr, who hold the sprint world records, improved with every race. So did middle distance man Tom O'Hara. About half the team members are to fly home late Tuesday. Two small groups are going to Sweden and Noway, another to Jamaica and a fourth to Romania. The American girls, humiliated in Moscow, got better every time out too. They lost to the British girls- as they had lost at every other stop—but managed to win four of the U events on their program here. In the windup of the British meet, the Americans swept to 1-2 finishes in four events and took the mile relay. Frank Covelli won rhe javelin for the other American win. while the British took the 3,000-meter steeplechase, the three miles, triple jump and shot put. Hire Rain Doctor For TitleFight By DENNIS NEELD LAGOS, Nigeria. (AP) - Nigeria's heavyweight labor minis ter with responsibility for sport engaged the services of a rain doctor today to ensure there will be no downpour Saturday night when Dick Tiger defends his world middleweight title against Gene Fullmer. Minister Joseph Modupe Johnson will drive round the town with a local medicine man to "persuade people he is on our side," he told newsmen. The 221-pound minister hopes to give a needed boost to ticket sales for the fight in Ibadan's Liberty Stadium. This is Nigeria's rainy season and when it rains in Nigeria it really rains. People aren't, buying tickets because they think the fight will be washed out," the minister said "Of course I don't believe in rain doctors myself but there are still a lot of Nigerians who do." Johnson said it was customary for Nigerians to engage a rain doctor on the eve of a wedding to make certain there was good weather for the ceremony. "I did it myself," he recalled. "It still rained but at least guests could not blame me." There is a well rememberd precedent for enlisting rain doctors said. Before the independence celebrations of 1960 the government gave the OBA of Lagos, Adele Adenjii, 2,800 to distribute among them. The. OBA is the traditional city chieftain. "Princess Alexandria represent ed Britain's Queen Elizabeth at the celebrations and we didn't want her to get wet," he said. "Despite the rain docs she still got soaked and no one looked glummer than the OBA," Johnson recalled. "It was the biggest blow to the superstition ever." What happened to the government money? . "It went down the drain," declared the minister. Miss America Entry Is 6-2 Basketball Star GRAHAM, N.C.
