Age for new hunter safety law is 18 A new law affecting youngsters who apply for their first California hunting license was reviewed by Department of Fish and Game officials at a general meeting of Los Angeles area hunter safety instructors in the auditorium of the California State Building in Los Angeles Friday evening, March 13. Chief speaker John Wentzel, DFG Hunter Safety Officer, em phasized that starting July 1, 1964. any person under.the age of 18 may obtain a hunting license only after having passed Hunter Safety Training Course. If the youngster already has a previous year's California license, however, he may get a new one without taking the course. Until this year the law applied only to persons under 16, Wentzel said. He urged the group to make every effort to enroll students in hunter safety courses during the winter and spring months, when hunting slacks off and instructors have more time for classes. Hunter safely courses are taught throughout California by about 3,000 volunteer instructors, under DFG supervision. The youngsters are taught how to conduct themselves safely in the field, how to get in and out of boats with minimum risk, and how to handle firearms properly. Information on courses may be gained from any Department of Fish and Game office, license agent or warden.

(UPI) —A post mortem was ordered Tuesday into the heart attack deaths of a young track star and his 14-year-old sister, who suffered a fatal seizure when informed her brother was dead. The victims were Eddie Martin, 15, a sophomore at St. Joseph's Academy, and his sister, Diane. The deaths occurred Monday within several hours of each other. Mr. and Mrs. Archie Martin, the parents, said the family has a history of heart trouble. The Martins have another girl and two boys, all younger than the victims. Martin is a postal employe. Eddie collapsed after covering about 400 yards of a 2.5-miIe cross country race m which his school was competing. Coach Burt Lewis massaged the boy's chest until an ambulance arrived, but he was pronounced dead.

This is great but raises the question, where do you go from here? Apparently the Dodger lefty thinks he can go up and be even better in 1964. I've never thrown this well this early," Koufax said. "I feel real good." The National League's most valuable player, pitched the first five inning in the Dodgers' 5-3 victory over the New York Mets Tuesday and gave only two hits, no runs and struck out seven. His control was right out of the middle of August as he failed to walk a man to go along with the three perfect frames he burled in Mexico over the weekend. Hook Take Loss Jay Hook, the Met starter and loser, gave up four runs in three innings while his fielders committed two miscues behind him. The St. Louis Cardinals, the Dodgers' most serious contender, won their fourth in a row and snapped a Cincinnati wining streak at three with a 4-2 win at Tampa. Harry Fanok, Dick Hughes, Dick LeMay and Barney Schultz shared the pitching chores and limited the Reds to seven hits, including Vada Pinson's first spring home run.

Fla. (UPD- The unusually sharp early spring performance by Sandy Koufax put a little extra pressure today on two other members of the Los Angeles Dodg- lers' "big three" pitchers—Don Drysdale and Johnny Podres. But both Drysdale and Podres have been around long enough to take their turns on the mound today against Baltimore with full recognition of the calendar — the date being March 18 instead of April 18. Neither "old pro" —at ages of 27 and 31, respectively—figures to be putting out everything just yet. But Koufax' five innings of shutout ball in Tuesday's 5-3 win over the New York Mets in an exhibition game still drew attention, even though he' also was in the tuneup stage. Striking out seven, Koufax showed e.xceUait control as he did not allow a walk and yielded only two hits. He also threw three perfect innings in a Mex ico City exhibition last Friday. Willie Davis, the young Dodfr er centerfielder who improved so much in the final months of 1963, had a good day for the Los Angeles nine. Davis cracked a two-base hit, scored a run and made a fine run-saving catch. Tommy Davis punched a has es-loaded single in the first inning that got the Dodgers off to a 2-0 lead, and they were never headed. A ground-rule double by Doug Camilli provided what turned out to be the deciding run in the third. Ex-Met Bob Miller, the sec ond Dodger pitcher, had some trouble when he was tagged for a two-run homer in the sLxtb. The blow by Frank Thomas carried 400 feet.

By JULIUS BOROS U'S .'6 PEN CHAMPION 8 — stance The three types of stance commonly used in golf are the square, open and closed. I'm merely going to try and tell you the advantages or disadvantages of each, and you can adopt whichever best fits your stature, swmg and game. The square stance — used on all normal shots except those with the short irons — allows me a full backswing. Pre-turning the hips to the left beforehand helps me turn them freely to the left ahead of my arms and hands on the downswing. A full backswing and a free hip turn on the do^vnswing: two fundamentals in the swinging stt'ing. Failure to pre-turn the hips may cause them to slide toward the target on the downswing. This lateral sliding, if excessive, inhibits freedom of, movement. This is caUed block-j^''Cnly between the feet, mg the swing. The square stance is assumed McBride pitches well, but Angels lose to Cubs PALM SPRINGS, Calif. (UPI) —It didn't take the Los Angeles Angels long to remmd pitcher Ken McBride of the 1963 sea son. McBride, who has had some rough going over the years, pitched well in Tuesday's 2-0 loss to the Chicago Cubs. He gave up only one run—a homer by Lou Brock—in sLx innings of solid baseball-. But the Angels didn't produce any runs, and his effort was chalked up as an exercise in conditioning and durability. Since that basically is the whole idea of the spring season. McBride doubtless wasn't losing any sleep on today's off day for the Angels. Los Angeles goes to Phoenix to open a series Thursday with the San Francisco Giants. The Angels still are ahead of the game—6-4—for the spring, and Tuesday was the first time since March, 1962, they were shut out in an exhibition. Three Cub pitchers, veteran Bob Buhl, Cal Koonce and rookie Sterling Slaughter, all were effective. They allowed only a total of three hits, two of the infield variety by Dick Simpson and Jim Fregosi. Bob Rodgers, whos« limited effectiveness along with McBride's injury hurt the Angels last season, got the only clean hit for Los Angeles—a single off Koonce. McBride, who now has an earned run average of 1.38 for 13 innings, was the first Angel pitcher to go more than four innings. He yielded to Fred New man who gave up a run on two singles and an infield out in the seventh. Wooden worried about unranked Kansas State DIAGRAIVI shows the three stances.

"Par Golf or Belter" by Julius Boros. Copyright by "renticc-Hall, Inc.. Englewood Cliffs, KANSAS CITY, Mo. (UPI) John Wooden, coach of top ranked and undefeated UCLA, is worried about unranked and five-times-beaten Kansas State. The two teams meet Friday m the national semifinals of the NCA basketball tournament. Duke and Michigan play m the other semifinal game. Despite the fact tliat UCLA whipped Kansas State 78-75 dur- mg the regular season. Wooden thinks the Wildcats will be par ticularly tough for his team to liandle. He gave two reasons in a conference call Tuesday with the coaches of the three other tcams: — Kansas State will have practically a home - court advantage in the Municipal Auditorium here. — Dave Nelson, a 6 - foot - 5 forward who scored 19 points agamst UCLA when the teams last met, now can't even make the starting lineup with Kansas State.

By OSCAR FRALEY UPI Sports Writer MIAMI (UPI)—Paul Homung wasn't particularly surprised when the news came to him that he and Alex Karras had been reinstated by National Football League Commissioner Pete RozeUe after a year's sus pension on gambling charges. 'It's wonderful news, of course," said the Green Bay Packer halfback. "But we met with RozeUe 10 days ago and I suspected the suspension would be Ufted." So did everybody else because the general feeling was that if aU facets of the case had been revealed, and there was no reason to suspect that they weren't, then the period in sackcloth and ashes without any time Umit seemed pretty strong stuff. Homung and Karras. the massive Detroit Lion tackle. were simply doing what comes naturally. Everybody bets on his own horse. This is not to condone a pro gridder in making a wager on his own team. The rules say you can't, so you don't. Hor nung and Karras admitted they did. Their sin in the eyes of the NFL had to do with the size and consistency of their betting plus association with certain sordid citizens. Karras first admitted that he had wagered on games but subsequently said he never bet "more than a pack of ciga rettes or a couple of cigars.' RozeUe's investigation showed that he had placed "at least six significant bets" on NFL games. There was no evidence he ever had bet against his own team. Nor had Homung. But. RozeUe charged that Karras had met individuals described by poUce as "known hoodlums" and he "continued associating with these individuals after learning of their backgrounds and habits." Homung over a period of five years made bets of from SlOO to $500. He also counseled a friend who was a West Coast businessman and, demonstrating the scope of their play, RozeUe's report said they "nor- maUy talked by telephone twice a week." RozeUe had to knock this type of action completely out of the box. Association with "known hoodlums' and-or wagers of the size announced not only wert breaches of the player contracts and league constitution but produced a hurricane ot whispers which threatened the whole structure ol gr9 ioot- baU's big business stature. There is a tremendous amount of betting "action" on pro footbaU games. And it must be significant of something or other that except for one season when he won $1,500, Hornung broke even on his bettmg. His advice, it would seem, didn't even pay for the phone calls to the coast Anyhow, RozeUe asserted that both men have a "clear understanding of the serious ness cf the offenses." Of this you may be certain. Each man lost a year of play—and pay. The most satisfying part of it aU is that both men escaped without stigma. They bet on their own horse, period. They were disciplined and they paid the penalty. Their feUow players beUeved in them aU the way and the players association recommended the action which RozeUe has taken.
