Bobbles Grounder —Shortstop Maury Wills bobbled a routine .grounder with two on and two out in the 12th inning, setting the stage for the three-run game-winning double by the Phillies' Dick Stuart. The upshot of it all was that the surging Braves seized the NL lead by a half-game. The Dodgers dropped into second place and the San Francisco Giants, who beat the New York Mets 5-0 are in third place only one game behind Milwaukee. The three teams are only seven percentage points apart with the Braves at .585, the Dodgers at .579 and the Giants at .578. The Braves, who have won six in a row and 28 of their last 37 games, survived one of the rarest calls in baseball before winning their game. It came in the eighth inning when Aaron walloped a ball to the pavilion roof for an apparent home run which would have snapped a 3-3 tie. The great Milwaukee hitter was called out by umpire Chris Pelekoudax, however, because he was out of the batter's box when he hit the ball. . events, the Braves won the game in the ninth when defensive outfield Don Dillard, who had made only one hit hi eight previous trips to the plate this season, belted a two-run homer. That was all Tony Cloninger needed as he shut out the Cardinals in the ninth to score his 18th victory against eight losses. The sturdy right-hander Top Pros Seek Big Jackpot By DICK DEW UPI Sports Writer SUTTON, Mass. (UPI) — The glitter of professional golf's biggest jackpot shone through a misty dawn today for early starters in the $200,000 Carling world championship. The first of 106 American campaigners and 48 foreign stars began teeing off at 7 a.m. at remote Pleasant Valley Country Club, eaoh dreaming of the $35.000 first prize that will go to the low man after 72 holes of medal competition. A flurry of last minute scratches and a few delayed arrivals did nothing to lessen the tension as 151 professionals and three amateurs began shooting at the huge greens for which this 6,713 yard par 71 course is noted. Power hitter Jack Nicklaus was among the last to arrive and had time for only a few practice holes for this tournament which will be staged in England next year and in Canada in 1967. But gallerys of several hundred, part of a final practice day attendance of more than 10,000, were content with a glimpse of Nicklaus and to follow for a few holes the Arnold Palmer- Ben Hogan twosome. The weather bureau said Wednesday's threatening skies and scattered thundershowers during the night would be a thing of the past by mid-morning at the latest and predicted sunny, if humid, weather for at least the first two days of the tournament. Only a handful of the top domestic and foreign pros were expected to miss golf's richest event. Dave Marr, winner of the §25,000 PGA tournament, and father of a baby boy a few hours later last Sunday, was rated with Nicklaus, defending Cartings champion Bobby Nichols, Gary Player of South Africa and Billy Casper among the top favorites. struck out nine and walked two whi]e pitching a six-hitter. ateo homere d *<* Koufax Weakens Koufax appeared to have his the season firm- in a rundown play on Johnny Callison's' grounder for the second out but then Wills fumbled A11 e n's potential third-out grounder filling the bases. Stuart's three-run double followed off Howie Reed. Gary Wagner, who walked six batters but allowed only one hit over the last 5 1-3 innings, won his fifth game for the Phillies while Jim Brewer suffered his second setback for the Dodgers. Throw Three-Hitter Juan Marichal, made it look easy as he fired a three-hitter to win his 19th game for the Giants. It was Marichal's fifth straight win over the Mets this season during which he has allowed them only one run in 45 innings. Willie Mays hit his 34th homer and Orlando Cepeda, back in the lineup for the first time in three months, had one hit in twio tries for ths Giants. Bob Veale was kayoed in a six-run ninth-inning rally but won his 13th game as the Pittsburgh Pirates beat the Houston the other NL in Astros 8-7 in game. Manny Mota drove four runs to lead the Pirates 11-hit attack while Jim Wynn had three hits for the Astros. In the American League, Baltimore shaded Boston 3-2, Chicago defeated Washington 8-2, Los Angeles beat New York 7-3, and Cleveland beat Kansas City 4-1 after a 4-2 loss. • WM%«v •» **ff^m*. I'-WIUWw Kecme May Make It Back As Yank Pilot By MILTON RICHMAN UPI Sports Writer NEW YORK (UPI) — The New York Yankees are taking their sweet old time disclosing the identity of their manager for 1966, although the man who figures to be their choice can give lessons in the delicate art of being patient. Johnny Keane has been unbelievably patient all his life, chiefly because he had little other choice, which more or less covers the same situation he's in right now. Keane had to wait 23 years before being given a chance to manage the St. Louis Cardinals and a year ago he had to sit still and wait while any number of rumors swirled around his head. Now he finds himseli waiting again for some word about 1966, one way or another. "It's not our policy to make any managerial announcements before the season is over," says a Yankee spokesman. "That's -,Jhe. ..way., we,, do. .it every year and that's the way we'll do it again this year." Keane isn't pushing them and he goes along doing the best he oan, figuring no news is good news. Keane Reads He reads the papers, however. And he's aware that his successor in St. Louis, Red Schoendienst, already is signed for next year even though the Cardinals are wallowing around in seventh place after winning the world championship last year. Exactly a year ago, with Keane mana<ging them, the Cardinals were in fourth place, nine games behind the first place Phillies. "It was just about this time last year when all that stuff started," smiled Keane, sitting in his swivel chair in his private office at Yankee Stadium. Keane didn't bother going into "all that stuff" again, but what he meant is well known to everyone in baselball. A year ago this time the reports started that Keane would oe let out by the Cardinals as soon as the season was over. Those reports happened to be correct at the time, but they never took into account the pos- Bowling News Parkside Lanes Tuesday Night Mixed League W L &L Market 22% 12% Four Aces 20% 12Vz Chippy's Four 18 15 Cruising Four 17% 15% Mirfits 17 16 Team No. 5 15 18 Spare Makers 12 21 Jackson Office Supply 11% 21% Trophies were presented to each league member.

POPULATION HUBS Africa and Asia have 60 per cent of the world population. sibility the Cards could come on to win the pennant. Neither did Cardinal owner Gussie Busch. When that happened, it was Keane who was on the other side of the fence for a change. Now it was Busch who had to wait and he wasn't used to it. The Cardinal owner had a brand new contract all set for Keane to sign, but Keane told him, "Let's wait until after the World Series." That contract was never signed. Not by Keane, anyway. He preferred putting his name on a contract offered him by the Yankees. Now the question is whether they'll come up with another one and the chances are they will. Keane not only has the respect of the Yankee ballplayers, he also has their sympathy. They blame themselves for their nose-dive this season not him. "Not His Fault" "It's not his fault that so many of us came up with in- juries this year," points out Mickey Mantle. "He's a darn good manager but he never had a chance this year. Too many of us were hurt at the same time." True enough, but some other managers have had to pay the price anyway. The Yankees didn't come out smelling exactly like Chanel No. 5 after firing Yogi Berra last fall. They're sensitive and know they would be in line for criticism if they canned Keane now. More than that, theyVe good businessmen. Firing Keane wouldn't especially come under the general heading of good bu'siness. Changing managers every year may be okay for a club like the Athletics but such a practice doesn't enhance the Yankees' image. And the Yankees concern themselves about the picture they present to the public. So Keane should make it back. In what you might call a photo finish.

(UPI) Mrs. George Herman Ruth, widow of baseball super-star "Babe" Ruth, was in Anderson today to attend the annual tournament of the youth's baseball league which bears her husband's name. Mrs. Ruth arrived in Indianapolis by airplane Wednesday before heading for Anderson, accompanied by former Brooklyn and Los Angeles Dodger great Carl Erskine, an Anderson native who coaches high school baseball there and is a member of the league's internationlal board of directors. Mrs. Ruth is honorary direct- tor of- the Babe Ruth League Women's Auxiliary. Army Coach Accused on Recruiting GAINESVILLE, Fla. (UPI)— Florida Coach Ray Graves was expected today to carry his charges of recruiting rule violations against Army Coach Paul Dieitzel to the National Collegiate Athletic Association (NCAA). Graves said Wednesday he would ask the NCAA to rule whether Dietzel had been guilty of "unethical practices" in recruiting a Pompano Beach fullback who had signed with the Gators. "I know the press is no place to legislate or resolve college recruiting policies," said Graves. "For that reason, I'm going to the NCAA." Graves had accused Dietzel of luring Ron Ess>man, a 6-foot-l, 195-pounder from Florida by unethical means to attend a prep school while awaiting a probable appointment to West Point. "I believe there is enough evidence to bring this and other similar situations before the NCAA lor review," Graves said. Dietzel, a former Louisiana State University head football coach, denied all charges of rule violations or unethical practices. He confirmed that Essman would attend Borden- ton prep school and might receive an appointment to the academy. The Florida coach said he would ask the NCAA to rule on exemption rules applicable to service academies "which prohibit other NCAA member schools from paying a prospect's way to a prep school." He said he would ' ask the governing board "if this ex- mption is intended to take care of prospects who are not academically prepared to enter an a-caedmy or if it's to include the practice of putting athletes on cold storage until an appointment is available." He added, "if we tried to farm boys out omtil they are ready to play for us, and have our alumni associations pay for this system, we'd be hanged by the NCAA." Slow-Pitch Softball In the Wednesday night's second-round action of the slow- pitch softball tourney, Herbert's Shell downed the Christians 8-4, Hill-Rom thumped Union Bank and Trust 10-3 and Clarksburg shaded the Knights of St. John 12-11 in eight innings.

Mauer had. :hree hits, including a round;ripper, and Davis and Scudder iach had three base knocks. Ploeger had three hits, including a homer, and S. Buening and Brown three safeties for the losers.

PAGE 2 Gteensburg (Ind.) Daily News, Thursday, Aug. 19,1965 Eight Major Operations in Year— Amazing Jerry Kramer Is Back With Packers By GENE W. HINTZ GREEN BAY, Wis. (UPI) — Tttiey were counting Jerry Kramer out a month ago. Now they're counting him in, and his amlazing recovery from eight major operations in a year could mean another championship for the Green Bay Packers. llwo years ago, Kramer was an all - National Football League guard with the Packers. A year ago he was. rumored near death a' n d some friends, familiar with his recuperative powers, had thrown a "wake" for him at-his home. But last Saturday, Kramer returned to the football field NCAA-AAU Probers Turn to Newsmen WASHINGTON (UPI) — A Senate committee turned to newsmen today for an unemotional appraisal of the dispute between the nation's two leading amateur athletic organizations. The committee is seeking to find a solution to the long-standing and bitter feud between the National Collegiate Athletic Association (NCAA) and the Amateur Athletic Union (AAU). In three days of testimony to date, the committee has heard highly partisan sports figures give sharply conflicting views on which organization is responsible for the conflict. "The witnesses to date have all been personally involved in the issue," a committee staff member said. "We expect the newsmen to be more detached while still being well-informed on the controversy." O'Brien Is Named Loogootee Coach LOOGOOTEE, Ind. (UPI) — Former Jasper restaurateur Fred O'Brien today is the new head basketball coach at St. John's High School here. O'Brien, who coached high school basketball in Kentucky before taking over the restaurant, was signed to the new post Wednesday, replacing Burke Scott. Scott, a former Indiana University star, resigned the post to take a similar position at the new Cascade High School. O'Brien owned the Jasper restaurant for two years, after graduating from Xavier University in 1955 and coaching for seven years at Catholic High School in Lexington, Ky. Hearing Is Set On Hunting Regulations INDIANAPOLIS (UPI) —Proposed hunting regulations for his year and next will be out- 'ined at a public hearing by the Indiana Department of Natural Resources Aug. 24 at the World War Memorial auditorium here. Regulations to be discussed include seasons and limits for deer, rabbit, pheasant, quail, aartridge and ruffled grouse. Recommendations will be presented by the fish and game division staff. Young Vukovich In Midget Race LOS ANGELES (UPI) - Bill Vukovich Jr., 21-year-old son of the late two-time Indianapolis "500" champion, will make his first major appearance as a race driver here Saturday night. His father was killed in 1955 trying to win the "500" for the third consecutive time. Young Vukovich will compete in a United States Auto Club midget race at Ascot Park. This is his first year on the USAC midget tour, but he previously drove modified stock cars for two years. Franklin Attorney May Oppose Rees COLUMBUS, Ind. - James Young, a Franklin attorney, is planning to run in 1966 against State Senator John R. Rees of Columbus for the Republican nomination for joint state senator it is reported here. Senator Rees was elected from Bartholomew, Decatur, Franklin and Union Counties, but Bartholomew was joined with Johnson County in a new district by the legislature earlier this year. Johnson County now is represented by State Sen. Kenneth R. Pedigo, a Democrat elected from the former Johnson-Marion joint district. for the first 'time in nearly a year, going in for five or six plays at a crack as the Packers crushed the New York Giants 44-7. Most observers called it a miracle that Jerry was even able to don a uniform. But not those who knew him best. For, ever since he was five years old, when he narrowly escaped death by a slipping axe, Kramer has been amazing the medical world. Hurt While Hunting The incident as a five year old left him with a five - inch Scar on his throat and chin. A hunting accident suffered as a 16-year-old left him with a crippled hand and a badly - scarred right arm. After the hunting accident, he survived a case of blood poisoning, an auto accident and a fall from a fraternity house third story. Twice during his career with the Packers he was told he wouldn't play again — once in 1960 when he suffered a detached retina and again the next year when be shattered the bones in his ankle. And, it was an incident that happened When he was 17 that caused his latest troubles. Jerry was at his home in Sand Point, Idaho, when he noticed a calf running loose. He had cornered the animal and was reaching out to grab it when he stepped on a board. The board broke and a piece of it went into his groin. The doctor attending v him removed the splinters and Jerry returned home. But he started suffering a pain in his back and was rushed to a Spokane, Wash., hospital, where a piece of wood about three - quarters of an inch .wide and seven inches long was removed from a spot near his spine. Stomach Acted Up Last August, some 12 years later, Jerry started suffering from sitomaeh pains. The first diagnosis was gastritis, but when they didn't let up he entered a Green Bay hospital for exploratory surgery. The worst — a tumor — wlas discovered and doctors were nearly certain it was cancerous. But, it proved to be nonmalignant and further operations were scheduled. On the fifth operation, three splinters of wood — one four inches long, one three inches long and one two incres long- were removed. It was these splinters that had caused the growth, which was diagnosed as a lungus infection called acti- nomycosis. Recovery after that was quick for Jerry. He went hunting alligators and manta ray in Mexico with bow and arrow. And, in July, he returned to the Packers' training camp, just 20 pounds under his playing weight of 245. By last week he was up to has playing weight and the doctors gave him the okay to see action. "He's an amazing fellow," said his coach, Vince Lombardi. "I never through! he would p)ay for us this year, but he's made me change my mind." LTHEA' GREENSBURG, INDIANA CALL 663-5583 THURS., FRI., SAT.
