Whatever he wins in the British Open next week will not count in the "official" money winning records kept by the Professional Golfers Association.

Yogi Not On Squad NEW YORK (AP)-New York Yankee catcher-coach Yogi Berra failed to make the American League All Star team this year, breaking a string of 14 consecutive seasons in which the stubby receiver has appeared in at least one game. Berra, a three-time Most Valuable Player for the Yankees, first was named to the All-Star team in 1949, and has appeared in at least one All-Star attraction each year since. The 38-year-old catcher, who now doubles as a coach for the Yankees, is hitting only ,196 in 26 games for the defending world champions. He has been used principally as a pinch hitter.

When Stengel's New York Mets peddled infielder Charley Neil and catcher Sammy Taylor to Cincinnati in a waiver deal Monday, the Reds promised to ship ole Case a player to be determined at a later date. That date could be today or Wednesday, and the best guess is that the player will be Gonder, The Reds partially confirmed this Monday night when they asked waivers on Gonder, who has appeared in only 31 games with Cincinnati this season but is hitting a healthy .313. The Reds apparently can spare Gonder because the acquisition of Taylor gave them four catchers. And the Mets, who have an anemic team batting average of .209, certainly can use Gonder. The 27-year-old, lefty-hitting catcher cracked the majors with I960— the same year Stengel was canned as the manager of the Bronx Bombers, He appeared in only seven games that season but earned Casey's respect and admiration. Following the 1961 season, the Yankees traded Gonder to Cincinnati for " pitcher Marshall Bridges, The Reds-Mets transaction set off a chain reaction whereby Cincinnati sold second baseman Don Blasingame to the Washington Senators, who made room for him op their roster by selling pitcher Jim Coates to San Diego of the Pacific Coast League, Blasingame hit .281 in 141 games for the Reds last season but lost his job this year to rookie Pe|e Rose. He batted only 461 in 18 appearances with Cincinnati this season. Associated Press Sports Writer r Johnny Podres doesn't take many bows. It's dangerous. But there's no doubt the shrewd left-hander with the chronic back trouble was entitled to take just a little dip from the waist Monday night after his five-hit pitching carried Los Angeles to a 2 -1 victory over Milwaukee and to within one-half game of the National League lead. Plagued by back trouble since the start of his professional career, Podres has been both brilliant and baffling for the Dodgers since he joined the club in 1953. For the last three weeks, he had again been a problem, unable to win. Then, against the Braves, the 31-year-old hurler completed an Pastrano to Defend Against te Thornton Way MIAMI BEACH (UPD - Willie Pastrano's managers tentatively have made a $70,000 date tor their new light heavyweight champion — a title bout against hard-hitting Wayne Thornton of Fresno, Calif. Fresno sports promoter Harold E. Murell proposed the fight in a telegram Monday sent to Pastrano's home here. Pastrano's manager, Angelo Dundee, telegraphed back a conditional acceptance. Dundee asked for a $10,000 ••good faith binder" which would be forfeited if the contract were not signed within 15 days after both parties agreed to conditions of the match. other amazing flip-flop, turning in one of his strongest performances of the season. He struck out 12 and walked only two while recording his sixth complete game for a 5-6 record. The decisive run came home on Wally Moon's pinch-hit double in the ninth inning off Braves starter Bob Sadowski, who wound up with a four-hitter and is 0-2 since he came to Milwaukee in the trade that sent Lew Burdette to St. Louis. The Cardinals, meanwhile, lost to Houston 4-3 in li innings on Rusty Staub's key single. It was the Colts sixth victory in their last seven extra-inning games, all won by relief specialist Hal Wood­ eshick. In other games, fourth-place Cincinnati showed its home run punch in edging third-place San Francisco 4-3 and Pittsburgh and Philadelphia split. The Pirates won the opener 2-1 before the Phillies took the nightcap '8-1, New York's Mets and the Chicago Cubs were idle, The American League*Ieading New York Yankees knocked off Boston 7-5 and Kansas City defeated Baltimore 6-4 in the only games on the AL schedule. The Dodgers moved ahead 1-0 •gers ace on Frank Howard's 12th homer in the second inning but Gene Oliver, L who also came to the Braves in the Burdette trade, tied the score ^ with a homer off Podres in the fourth. It stayed that way until the ninth when Maury Wills singled, stole second and eventually came around on Moon's hit following an intentional walk to Jim Gilliam. Sadowski had retired 14 men in a row when Wills hit one up the middle., Woodeshik, now 8-3, allowed the Cardinals to tie the score in the ninth on a pinch single by Charlie James, a ground out and Bill White's single, but then checked the league-leaders until the Colts struck against Ron Taylor, 4-3. Ernie Fazio, like Staub a rookie, beat out an infiejd hit, moved to second on a sacrifice, took third on a wild pitch and trotted home on Staub's single. It was Houston's second straight victory over St. Louis after seven consecutive losses. COOLER TOMORROW Time to Insulate WHITE'S PHONE 842-0811 READ THIS ClASSIFIEDSI Rain Date July 7 •4, T.
