The Giants' victory ended a seven-game Los Angeles win streak that had sent the Dodgers into second place until they fell before the Giants in a 13th inning barrage. It was the first extra-inning game the Dodgers have lost in the Coliseum. The clubs resume tbeir hostilities tonight in the final game be fore going on the road. Don Drysdale (8-5) hurls (or the Dodgers with Sam Jones <8-&> on the mound for the Giants. The teams matched hit for hit and run for run Monday night and might still have been going had not manager Walt Alston been forced to yank Sandy Koufax because he tired. Sten Williams took over in the 13th and immediately was tagged for a homer by Jim Davenport with Willie Mays padding an insurance homer as the second man up. For Davenport it was hu second homer of the game, tht third baseman having led off in the first inning with a homer. Alston said he asked Koufax. who had gone a full game last Saturday, if he' was tiring afterj three innings of relief. The man ager said Koufax admitted he was tiring so Williams took over. Roger Craig pitched nine innings for the Dodgers against Stu Millerj who went eight innings in relief in a brilliant pitching duel. Mike McCormick. however, who finished out the final four and two- thirds innings, got credit for the victory. For the Dodgers the only home run came from Gil Hodges who increased his batting streak to 14 games even though the club's streak was snapped. A crowd of 44,771 sat through Hie three hours and 51 minutes of tense action with hardly person leaving until the Giants took their two-run lead in the top of the 13th and the Dodgers' cause appeared lost. The clubs had remained deadlocked at 3-3 from the third inninp until the ninth when the Giants torged ahead as the result oi Jackie Brandt's triple after Orlan do Cepetfa had singled. But the Dodgers tied it up in the bottom of the ninth on Carl FurilIo"> sacrifice fly after Jim Gilliam singled and a double bv Charlie Neal. Cepeda was hit by a foul line drive off the bat of Willie Kirkland in the 13th inning and was knocked unconscious. An examina-J lion, however, did not indicate any serious injury- but he was taken to Daniel Freeman hospital for x-rays. He was struck on the; side of the jaw by the hard smash. Padres Soar Ahead Of Angels In wild first innings the Padres soared ahead of the Angels to end the game 12-7 in J.C. Little League play last night.

England-(UPI>Darlene Hard and Sally Moore, now left alone to carry on a brilliant American victory tradition, both were slight favorites today to advance to the semi-final round of women's singles in the Wimbledon Tennis Championships. The coveted women's crown here has been won by an American 15 straight, times in an amazing string tbat began after Britain's Dorothy Round won the title in 1937. But Britain's Angela Mortimer, seeded second and favored today over fifth-seeded Sandra Reynolds of South Africa, now is the title choice in this year's tournament Already eliminated are top-seeded Christine Truman of England and third-seeded Beverly Fleitz of Long Beach, Calif., who had been America's best hope. The blonde Miss Hard, Monte- hello, Calif., runner-up here in 1957, was matched today against eighth-seeded Ann Haydon of Britain- while Miss Moore, of Bakersfield, Calif., was up against unseeded but dangerous Hola Ramirez of Mexico. In the other quarter-final, sixth- seeded Maria Bueno of Brazil faced Edda Buding of Germany. Also on today's program were various matches in the different divisions of doubles. V. S. Davis Cup stars Alex 01- medo and Barry MacKay scored hard-fought victories Monday to gain the semi-final round in men's tingles. MacKay, of Dayton, Ohio thus became the first American to advance that far since 1956. Olmedo, Peruvian who has lived in Los Angeles for the past five years, beat Luis Ayala of Chile, •5, 3-6, 6-3, 6-3,"and thus became the first South American ever to reach the semi-finals here. Mac Kay, a third class airman in the U. S. Air Force who has had trouble rounding into shape, ral lied brilliantly to upset Australian ace Neale Fraser, 5-7, 10-8, 0-6, 6-3, 61. Semi-finals in men's singles are scheduled Wednesday and could easily be Davis Cup previews since they both will be U. S. vs Australia affairs. Olmedo will meet eighth-seeded Aussie Roy Emerson and MacKay will pla; unseeded Rod Laver, Australia'.* most promising young player. 7— Admiral To Direct New West League SAN FRANCISCO (UPI)-The] new Athletic Assn. of Western Universities goes into business of- fiddly Wednesday—with none other than Rear Adm.

COMPLETE AUTO UPHOLSTERY SEAT COVERS, TOPS CLEAR PLASTIC COVERS AUTO GLASS All Makes Passenger Car and Trucks CALL PY 2-4705 612 FIRST ST. REDLAND5 Connolly Seeks Permission For Record Attempt HELSINKI, Finland, (UPI)-Hal Connolly of Los Angeles was hoping today for official permission to make an attempt to break his own world record for the hamme throw. Olympic champion Connolly won the hammer throw on the opening day of a two-day international track and field meet here Monday, but was dissatisfied with his winning toss of 214 feet, 7 inches — far short of his world mark of 225 feet, 4 inches. 'I will try to break the record if the officials let me throw in an extra event, although it isn't on the program," said Connolly. The Olympic champ said he was a "little dizzy" -during Monday's competition "because I got off a plane from New York only an hour before the meet." Another Olympic champion Parry O'Brien of Los Angeles, also hoped to set a world record today in the shot put event. A crowd of 20,275 Monday saw O' Brien break the stadium record in the discus throw with a heave of 185 feet, 1 inch. "I'll be trying," said O'Brien, looking ahead to today's shot put "By the end of this summer I hope to make 65 feet." O'Brien holds the recognized world shot put record of 63 feet, l-»i inches, and surpassed that on June 16 when he made a toss of; 63 feet, 8 inches at Pomona, Calif. In addition to Connolly and O'Brien, other U.S. winners on Monday's opening program in eluded Bob Poynter of San Jose State in the 200 meter dash in 21.3 seconds. Bob Gardner of the Quantico Marines in the high jump with a leap of six feet, 8-% inches, and Jerome Walters oi Altadena, Calif., in the 800 meter run in 1:53.2. Gerhardus Potgieter of South Africa, world record holder for the 440 yard hurdles, won the 400 meter hurdles in 50.8 seconds as Dick Howard of New Mexico University finished second in 54.3 Howard said later he still felt stiff from the long plane flight Other winners included Giorgios Papavasilious of Greece in the 3,000 meter steeplechase in 8:59.2, Jorma Valkama of Finland in the broad jump with 24 feet, and Hans Hueneke of West Germany in the 5,000 meter run in 14:07.8.

IngoV Right, Most Find Since Trigger Letha Finger By OSCAR FRALEY United Press International NEW YORK <UPI>—Reflections on "THE" right hand: Everybody still wants to know about Ingemar Johansson's right band, the only difference being that since he knocked out Floyd Patterson to win the world heavy, weight title they believe all the stories. The punch, as seen from this corner with an over-Ingo's-shoulder view, was readied much like Robin Hood pulling his bow to full leverage as he got ready to pink one of King John's henchmen Ingo's fist was the head of the arrow and all you can say in the final analysis is that it must be the greatest thing since TNT to have knocked Patterson flat on his back. It was one of the most fearsome driving punches these tired, old red-rimmed eyes ever have seen In retrospect the mere fact that Patterson rose, again and again like a runaway yoyo, is a testimonial to his instinctive courage and gameness. Because the man was really lathered ... Tree Trunk Legs One of the items which legislated against Johansson in the pre-fight speculation was that he was declared by some to have •tree trunk" legs which limited his agility. Those who saw the pictures of his fight with Eddie Machen knew, however, that he could move like a jack rabbit in a prairie fire. This was proved indisputably by Red China Won't Compete In Winter Olympics SAN FRANCISCO (UPI) — Red China's athletes "definitely wont" compete in next year's Winter Olympics. That point was reemphasized today by Prentis C. Hale, president of the Squaw Valley com mittee. His statement coincided with discussions in the U.S. Sen ate about a $400,000 appropriation for Squaw Valley. Hale made his statement on the heels of a conference with Avery Brundage, president of the International Olympic Committee (IOC).. Hale stressed that Nationalist China had already been invited and would compete. He said Red China was not recognized by the International Olympic Committee at the time the invitations had been sent out for 'the winter games and that was why they weren't being invited. At the same time, Brundage denied that Nationalist China had been "ousted" or "expelled" from the Olympics under the IOC's decision at its recent Munich, Germany, meeting. Brundage said the IOC's decision sought to identify the Na tionalist Chinese with Formosa. He denied that the IOC had meddled in politics or bowed to Communist pressure on its decision. The decision set off a small iiror in this country what with the government's long standing refusal to recognize Red China. Some congressmen said the fed eral government ought to withdraw its support from the winter games. Senator Thomas Hennings (D- Mo.) urged the Senate to keep the cold war out of the Olympics. Sen. Hennings, a former track and field coach at Washington University in St Louis, said the simple answer is for the Nationalist Chinese committee to abandon ts position that it supervises mainland sports and allow Nationalist Chinese athletes to take part in the Olympics as representatives of Formosa. Brundage said "amicable negotiations" were now proceeding between the IOC and Nationalist China and be said he felt certain an agreement will be reached. You'll Find a Ready Market Thru Fast-Acting Facts Classified Ads N GERMAN RIDER WINS AACHEN, Germany (UPI) Hermann Schridde of West Ger many won the "Landrat Puetz Memorial Prix" jumping event on the third day of the Aachen International Horse Show Monday, while Fran Chapot of Wallpack, N.Y., finished fourth. Schridde rode Fusgosa to victory in 1:12.9. Chapot's time on Tally-Ho was 1:175. the fact that, while he floored Patterson seven times in the thirJ round, it was only 2:03 when the slaughter was halted. Which means that there still were 57 seconds remaining and if Ruby Goldstein hadn't intervened, Ingo; might have destroyed the champ. It seemed like the longest round in history, as it was, and you kept wondering why the bell didn'i ring. The answer was in the speed of Ingo's "tree trunk" legs. They moved him in and out with the frenzied grace of a berserk ballet master. The man can really sprint ... The cutest question thrown at Ingo during the post-fight press party was: "What's wrong with American training methods?" Harpooned About Right During his training, the Swede was harpooned from all sides and even his own trainer, Whitey Bimstein, mildly criticized his refusal to throw his right hand as well as the ladies' day and home cooking atmosphere in Ingo's camp. Ingemar trained at Grossinger's one of the swankiest Catskill resorts, and the hotel received a lot of unfavorable arid unfair men­ tion as contributing to his boxing delinquency. Ingo did see several) of the floor shows and he did ta ckle the rhumba several times with his fiancee. But there was no monkey business with his training regime and no demandsj were made on his time. He simply figured himself that a bit of relaxation was good for him. Ingo only grinned when they asked "what's wrong with American training methods?" Then he merely replied that "everyone should train as he sees fit, which is what I do." Johansson did feel alien and suspicious as the result of all this sharp-shooting and was highly reluctant to discuss his plans and his training. Thus that righ hand was the best kept secret of thej boxing ages. Yet Ingo did tell the truth when he said he didn't want to hurt his sparring partners. If he had thrown that right in trainin, they'd have been the most busted up batch of beak benders in ring annals. Because the punch he finally did put on display was the most lethal right hand since invention of the trigger finger. Pee Wee Reese Having Fun Being Dodger Coach By ALEX KAHN United Press International LOS ANGELES (UPI) — Pee Wee Reese is having almost as much fun being a coach for the Los Angeles Dodgers as he did during his 16 years playing in the major leagues. With his first season of coach ing near the half-way point, Reese has gained confidence and taken a more active part in guiding the Dodgers towards their present high spot in the league. The great little shortstop works chiefly ivith the infield but assists wherever he can be of service. 'To be frank, I didn't know be fore spring training if 1 was suited for a coach's job and if I'd like being on the sidelines with the club," Reese said during the pre game warm-up at the Coliseum. 'I found that I did like it and also that there was a lot more to coaching than I had realized as a player. In my playing days, like the other players. I was concerned chiefly with my own problems. 'I was aware that, others had problems and when a man wen*, into a hitting slump or made some errors, I knew about it and was sympathetic. But that's about as far as it goes with a player. "But as a coach it's my job to think about the problems of all the players as well as the team effort." Reese during the past few weeks had to take over the third base coaching job when,. ..Charlie Dressen became ill and that was a new experience for him also. But to most observers he did the job competently at a crucial time when the Dodgers were just embarking on their lengthy winning streak. "I was lucky in some cases," Reese grinned. "A couple of times I waved men home when a good throw might have caught them But the throw was just a little off and the men scored." Reese says coaching at third base is a job that calls on all of a man's baseball knowledge and he has nothing but admiration for Dressen's ability at the position. "Performed Perfectly "Pee Wee performed perfectly in the coaching spot," Alston said. "He had to make plenty of snap decisions and from the dugout I couldn't find fault with them. He isn't afraid to take a chance when it's necessary and yet he knows when to play it safe." Reese says there's one place where being a coach has it over being a player and that's in sitting in on the planning sessions, in working out pitching assignments, in the broad aspects of the entire operation. "I'm glad the Dodgers gave me the chance to coach," the famed former shortstop added. "I'm still part of the team and I'm doing a job I like to think my years of playing helped prepare me for.' Johansson's Share May Reach $600,000 NEW YORK (UPI(-Ingemar Johansson's share of the gate for last Friday's bout in which he won the world heavyweight championship is being held in escrow, but the handsome Swede isn't going to be lacking for pocket money Irving B. Kahn, president of Teleprompter Corp. which staged the closed circuit television of Johansson's triumph over Floyd Patterson, estimated Monday that Ingo's cut of the theater-TV pot would boost his earnings on the fight to between $250,000 and $300, 000. Kahn figured that Patterson would receive a total of about $600,000 for his defeat. Johansson's share of the gate receipts at Yankee Stadium is being held in eyrow under terms of his contract until he goes through with the scheduled return boul against Patterson. Kahn said he has received reports from 95 per cent of the 170 locations throughout the country which staged the theater-TV These indicate a total of about 244.000 patrons paid an estimated $1,032,000 to see the show, with net receipts estimated at $939,400. Ingo Vows Hell Be A Fighting Champion MIAMI, Fla. (UPI) — Heavy weight king Ingemar Johansson— who vows he'll be a "fighting champion"—settled down today at the swank oceanfront home of a wealthy industrialist for a brie. Florida vacation before returning to Sweden. His only plans for the next few days were to rest and "do some fishing and play some golf." The handsome Johansson landed here Monday afternoon with his pretty fiancee, his parents, his brother Rolf and Rolf's fiancee. He was met at the airport by nearly 200 persons and a wilting 93-degree temperature. But the hot sunshine didn't seem to bother the cordial, smiling champion, dressed in a double-breasted blue blazer with a Swedish crest on his chest. "I'd rather be too warm than freeze," he smiled. Johansson quickly denied reports from Goteburg, Sweden, his hometown, that he plans to fight only twice more then retire to become a motion picture star. The report came from his doctor, Goesta Carlson. "I definitely won't retire after two more fights," Johansson de clared. "I'm going to be a fight irjg champion." He admitted he "could have" oeen approached by a movie company but declined to elabo rate. Johansson also rejected reports that he was thinking of Eddie Machen of Redding, Calif., as an opponent after his rematch with dethroned Floyd Patterson. The new champ knocked Machen out in the first round of a fight in Sweden last year. 'Machen will have to prove himself before I fight him again,' Johansson said. The champion is staying at the home of Mr. and Mrs. Gustaf von Reis, a Swedish-born Detroit and Fort Lauderdale, Fla., industrial ist.
