Reds Whip Cubs— Dodgers Retain Lead Over Torrid Braves By FRED DOWN UPI Sports Writer Denny Lemaster, who's been behind schedule since the Mil waukee Braves signed him in 1958 seems to have "arrived" just in time this year. "Another Warren Spahn,' was the label the Braves pinned on Lemaster when they signed him as a 19-year-old in '58. But Lemaster's progress was slow. He didn't make it to the Braves until 1962 and he didn't post a winning recor. until 1964 when he was 17-11. Even that was a bit of a dis appointment and there was more this season when the 6-2 185^ound left-hander from Corona, Calif., was sidelined with tendonitis in mid-June. He die not return to action until July 23 and didn't begin to look like a winner until five days ago. ' He looked like "another Spahn" Tuesday night, al right, when he pitched a three hitter that gave the Braves a 4-1 victory over the St. Louis Cardinals. It was the Braves fifth straight win and their 27th in 36 games, enabling them to stay within a half game of the National League-leading Los Angeles Dodgers, who beat the Philadelphia Phillies 4-2. Picks Off Runner Lemaster yielded a leadoff single to Lou Brock and then pulled an old Spahn trick by picking him off first. After that, Lemaster pitched hitless ball, retiring 17 batters in a row in one stretch, before the Cardinals scored in the eighth on Tim McCarver's single and Dal Maxvill's double. Felipe Alou. who had four hits in five tries, started a two- run rally with a single in the third and the Braves added two more in the fifth when Hank Aaron hit a two-run homer. Lemaster struck out seven in winning his second straight game and raising his season record to 6-9. The Dodgers bounced back after two straight losses to beat the Phillies behind the combined six-hit pitching of Claude Osteen and Ron Perran- oski. R&okie second baseman Jim Lefebvre singled home the tie-breaking run when the Dodgers rallied for two runs in the IN GOOD SHAPE BUDAPEST (UPI) — The U. S. basketball team, "in excellent shape" according to Prince ton Ail-American Bill Bradley, arrived Tuesday for the Worlc University games which begin Friday. Eighty-nine of the expected 145-member Soviet Union squad also arrived. 4 Reasons why More People Buy LIQUID-VELVET V COVERS BETTER V LOOKS BETTER V WASHES BETTER V WEARS BETTER > Be Sure the Paint You're Buyin' is O'Brien State Fair Ticket Headquarters SAVE 50 BATTERTON'S WEST SIDE DRUGS Phone 662-4331 O'BRIEN PAINTS seventh.

AL Action In the American League, Detroit defeated Minnesota 7-4, Chicago topped Washington 7-2 and 5-1, Baltimore nipped Boston 3-1, Kansas City beat Cleve land 3-2 and New York downed Los Angeles 6-1.

Bob Bolin went 6 2-3 innings in relief to win his seventh game while Jack Fisher suffered his 16th loss against seven wins. Frank Robinson and Deron Johnson hit homers to lead a nine-hit Reds attack that gained rookie Ted Davidson his second big league victory. Johnson also drove in a run with a single to increase his league-leading runs batted in total to 97. Billy Williams hit his 20th homer and Glenn Beckert had three hits for the Cubs. Donn Olendenon's two-run homer and three hits each by Bob Bailey and Gene Alley led the Pirates' 12-hit attack. Vern Law needed help from Frank Carpin and Al McBean in the late innings but chalked up his 14th victory. Joe Morgan had four hits and Rusty Staub had three for the Astros.

Clarksburg managed only two hits off Konkle, losing pitcher, while the church team had five safeties off winning moundsman Carroll.

(UPI) — The World Boxing Association (WBA) put a take-it-or-leave-it proposition on the boards today for heavyweight champion Cassius Clay, "but it was hardly appetizing for the boxer. It would make (Muhammad Ali) Clay a challenger until, and if, he could dethrone WBA champion Ernie Terrell in a four - wiay elimination contest that also could earn Clay reinstatement with the association. The WBA, which today was to elect its new president, adopted a resolution Tuesday endorsing the proposal of Harry Markson, representing the Madison Square Garden Corp. The Markson plan—which probably could not be accomplished before November at the earliest— would: —Call for a doubleheader in which Terrell met George Chu- valo and Clay faced former champion Floyd Patterson. The two winners would meet for undisputed possession of the crown. Clay, however, would be identified as a challenger in both the semifinals and finals of the contest. Markson figured the proposal had a 50-50 chance of succeeding. POLL PARROT LOAFERS ALWAYS ON THE HONOR ROLL In Appearance, Fit and Ruggedness. They and Wear. Try Pair Wea LEADER SHOE STORE W. Side Square Wilt Wffl Stick With Basketball MONTKJELiLO, N. Y. (UPI) —Wilt Chamberlain's new three year contract with Philadelphia has made the 7-foot-l center "very happy," furrowed the brow of fight manager Cus D'Amato, elated the 76ers and deflated the rest of the National Basketball Association. Chamberlain, the MBA's top scorer for the'past six seasons, received a reported $70,000 last yaar but his new contract was termed "the largest salary in organized sports" by Philadelphia co-owners Irv Kosloff and Ifce Richman. Although the owners, who signed the six-year NBA veteran at Kutsher's Country Club Tuesday, refused to disclose the exact terms of the contract, Chamberlain mentioned that it was "a substantial increase over last year and I'm very happy." It should be noted that if Chamberlain is receiving the highest salary in sports, as Richman and Kosloff contend, it must exceed the $105,000 annual wage the San Francisco Giants pay to Willie Mays. Benefit Game Chamberlain and many other NBA stars were here to play in the seventh annual Maurice Stokes benefit game Tuesday night. Jack Twyman of the Cincinnati Royals, who instituted teh game to help his former teammate who was stricken with encephalitis in 1958, scored 21 points to dead the Eastern aft-stars to a 92-71 victory over the West. Stokes attended the game.. Until Monday, Chamberlain had been considering a professional boxing career, which would have curtailed if not totally eliminated his basketball activities. D'Amato, former manager of Floyd Patterson, had attempted to induce the 280-,pound athlete to turn boxer with a reported million-dollar contract. "I don't believe the 76ers could outbid us," D'Amato said, "so they must have also approached him on another basis besides money." The other "basis 'besides money" could be Chamberlain's pride. The towering star never has played on a championship team in either high school, college or the pros, and 1965-66 could 'be a banner year for the 76ers. Squirrel Hunters Are Shot By United Press International Shotgun accidents already killed one and wounded several other persons in the first two days of Indiana's open season on squirrels. Warren Tetrick, 37, Indianapolis, died Tuesday at Linton from wounds suffered on Monday's opening day of the hunting season.

At Jeffersonville, Irvin Hammond, an insurance agency owner, was in fair condition in Clark Memorial Hospital from wounds in the chest, arm and face. Authorities said he was hunting alone near New Washington Tuesday when shot by a weapon fired by a young boy who also was hunting. Seven-year-old Tony Stevenson, Indianapolis, was in fan- condition at an Indianapolis hospital Irom pellet wounds in his -arm, leg and abdomen. He was hunting with his father, Willis, and Ray Barnett, 33, Indianapolis. Barnett fired at what he thought was a squirrel and the charge struck Tony. PAGE 2 Greensburg (Ind.) Daily News, Wednesday, Aug. 18,1965 Today's Sport Parade— Classy McBride Takes His Release Like Man By MILTON RICHMAN UPI Sports Writer " NEW YORK (UPI)— Classy Ken McBride, ones among the top drawer American League pitchers, took the bad news like the thoroughbred he is, always has .been and probably always will be. He didn't flinch, bat an eye or 'break down Tuesday night when Angel manager Bill Rigney closed the door of his private office in the clubhouse and asked him whether he'd willing to go to San Jose of the California State League. McBride knew it was San Jose or nothing. "I don't feel that bad," he said when he came out. "I've lasted a year longer than I thought I would. I've expected this for a couple of months. It's part of life. I've had my ups and downs and it can't be sunny every day." Rigney tried to break the news gently to the 30-year-old McBride after the Angels dropped a 6-1 decision to the Yankees. He explained the Angels had obtained two new pitchers Muzzle Rifle Shoot Is Set at Friendship VERSAILLES, Ind. — Members of the National Muzzle Rifle Association will meet Aug. 31 to Sept. 6, for their 1965 National Fall Shoot at the Walter Cline Range in Friendship.

Angels Acquire Sanford, Coates NEW YORK (UPI) — Newly- acquired pitchers Jack Sanford and Jim Coates were told today to be ready for action Friday night when the Los Angeles Angels return home to meet the American League-leading Minnesota Twins.

Franklin Phone 662-8622 Jack Sanford from the Giants and Jim Coates from Seattle, so two pitchers had to be dropped. Rookie Ed Sukla was the other one and he took the long walk into Rigney.'s office •right after McBride. Takes Release Well "I've had to let a lotta ballplayers go in my time, but I oah't remember any of them taking it better than McBride did," said Rigney later. "Dusty Rhodes was the roughest. He loved it so much, and it was the toughest thing I've ever had to do when I had to tell him he was through with the Giants. You'd never guess who the second roughest one was. Ryne Duren. Boy, did he hate to leave this ball club." After McBride emerged from Rigney's private office, he returned to his locker and finished 'getting into his street clothes. "Rig was very good about 'it," he said, "'but I don't know if I'll go to San Jose. He wants me to go down there, get about three or four starts and then maybe they'll bring me back here. But I don't know. I'm going back to Los Angeles with the club on Thursday and talk to Fred ('general manager Fred Haney)." Teammate Jimmy Piersall listened as he tied his shoelaces a few feet away. "Hey Mac," he called over to McBride, "don't feel so badly. At least you were spared the embarrassment of being released by the Mets. Imagine anyone being released by the Mets? I was." McBride smiled but didn't reply. First-Hand The Rule Ballplayers have one rule aibout being let go or being sent down to the minors. They like to be the first to know and they also like to hear it first-hand. They don't particularly care to read about it first in the newspapers or hear it on radio or television. It's sort of like the neighborhood igrocer telling you your wife is about to sue for divorce. McBride didn't exactly get the news first from Rigney Tuesday night. During the fifth inning, the Yankees posted word on their electrical Scoreboard that the Angels had just obtained both Sanford and Coates. McBride was in the bullpen but was paying attention. He got the message. Loud and clear. "As soon as I saw that on the Scoreboard in center-field, I knew I was gone," said McBride, who was selected to four All-Star teams during his five seasons with the Angels. "Bill apologized for that when he called me into his office," McBride went on. Actually, it wasn't Rigney's fault. It wasn't the Yankees' fault, either, but they intend to apologize to Rigney Wednesday. "I wish I had an excuse, like a sore arm or something, but physically I feel as good as when I broke in," said McBride. He excused himself so he could say good-toye to some of his teammates. PiersaU shook his head sadly. "Cheez," he said, "he used to be a great pitcher. He was the same kind of pitcher as Mel Stottlemyre. If I were him, I'd go out to San Jose or wherever they're sending him and try it three or four more times. "He's young, he's' in good shape and he can still throw. If he packs it in now, he may never forgive himself years later. I know I never would if I felt I still had any kind of Chance." GREENSBURG, INDIANA CALL 663-5583 Wed., Thurs., Fri., Sat.
