Sandy Koufax is a young left- handed pitcher on the threshold of greatness, Warren Spahn is a veteran left-hander who has lived in greatness for many seasons. These two stars flashed their brilliance Sunday—one taking an* other step in his first really big year, the other adding another victory to a long string of triumphs. Koufax fired his second straight shutout and eighth of the season for the Los Angeles Dodgers, pitching the National League front-runners to a 4-0 victory over Cincinnati in the opener of their doubleheader. His three-hit performance made him the first 14- game winner In the majors. The Dodgers followed Koufax' masterful job with a 3-1 decision over the Reds that increased their league lead to three games over the San Francisco Giants, who split With St. Louis. Spahn produced his gem in a night game at Houston, recording the 339th victory and 59th shutout of his 19-season career as the Milwaukee Braves downed the Colts 4-0. The Cards ended a string of eight straight losses by taking the second game at San Francisco 5-0, with 42-year-old Stan Musial supplying the batting fireworks and Bob Gibson the pitching. An error by Ken Boyer enabled the Giants to win the 15-inning opener 4-3. Also in the NL—the Pittsburgh Pirates battered the New York Mets into their 10th loss in a row, 11 -5, and Philadelphia edged the Chicago Cubs 3-2 on a ninth-inning run produced on Ruben Amaro's -triple and Cookie Rejas' pinch single. In the American League — the New York Yankees split at Cleveland, winning 7-4 in 10 innings after being whipped by the Indians 11-3; the Washington Senators extended their longest winning streak in 14 years to seven, beating the Los Angeles Angels 7-3 and 6-4; Detroit trimmed Kansas City 5-1, then lost to the A's 8-7; the Chicago White Sox won at Boston, 4-1 in 12 innings; and Baltimore nipped Minnesota 4-3 in 10 innings. Koufax continues to rack up impressive figures with his amazing pitching. He's 14-3 with an earned run average of 1.73, has already broken a Dodger season record for shutouts, and has the most in one year in the league since Mort Cooper got 10 for St. Louis in 1942. Sunday's victory was his seventh straight and 12th complete game. Spahn, 12-4 and driving for his 13th 20-victory season, checked the Colts on five singles and one walk in his fourth shutout of the year. The 42-year-old master has allowed only one run in his last 37 innings—in a 16 inning, 1-0 loss at San Francisco last Tuesday nir>ht. Musial, who smacked a two-run triple in the opener at San Francisco and collected four hits for the afternoon, broke a scoreless tie in the seventh inning of the second game with his 472nd career homer, following Dick Groat's single.

National League manager Alvin Dark of the San Francisco Giants has named Jim O'Toole, Cincinnati lefthander, to start for his team. O'Toole has a 134 mark thus far this season. Houk was faced with, an "eighter-or" dilemma — whether I field to McBride, but Houk still PA Short Up Front LAWRENCE, Kan.

A. Doesn't Look Good On Paper LOS ANGELES (AP) — Given nothing to go on but the latest weekly statistics, you could probably develop a first-rate case of tongue fatigue without convincing anybody the Los Angeles Dodgers should be higher than fourth or fifth in the National League standings today. The statistics show: 1. That Los Angeles, as of last weekend, ranked eighth in NL team fielding. 2. That the Dodgers were second in team batting—but that they were nearly 30 points back of the league's best hitting team, St. Louis. 3. That the Dodgers were fifth in scoring, 79 runs behind the leader. 4. That the Dodgers were tied with the punchless New York Mets for eighth place in team home runs. The Dodgers had hit 49 homers—only 48 fewer than the San Francisco Giants. 5. That only two Dodger pitchers were among the first 20 in the league in earned-run average. What it boils down to is that the Dodgers are leading the National League in practically nothing—unless you want to count the standings. There they are, three games in front. After the Dodgers beat Cincinnati 4-0 and 3-1 Sunday, their pitching staff had a remarkable earned-run average of 2.82, In their last eight games, Dodger pitchers have allowed only a dozen runs—an average of VA a game. They pitched four shutouts during that span and the Dodgers won seven of the eight games, although they averaged only a little more than three runs a game themselves. to go with Ken McBride of the Los Angeles Angels, who will have had two days rest for Tuesday's 34th All-Star game, or his own rookie right-hander, Jim Bouton of the Yankees, who pitched two-thirds of an inning Sunday. "If they let me, I'll name an eighter-or pitcher," said Houk, who was scheduled to name his starting hurler at a press conference today. "If they don't, well, I don't know which pitcher I'll name." The press conference ' was scheduled for 10 a.m., EDT. Available As Starters Houk, directing the American League All-Stars for the third time, had Bouton, McBride and Bill Monbouquette of the Red Sox available as starting possibilities. McBride pitched Friday night while Monbouquette worked in relief Sunday, as did Bouton. "I'd like to start someone with at least two days rest," -Houk said. That seemed to narrow the could name Bouton, who said he wasn't tired after Sunday's brief stint against Cleveland. Another possibility, Jim Bunning of Detroit who has been brilliant^ in four previous All-Star games, pitched Sunday, as did reliever Dick Radatz of the Red Sox. That left only Jim Grant of the Indians and Juan Pizarro of the White Sox, but Houk wasn't considering either of them as a starter. Loaded With Right-Handers "The National League is loaded with too much right-handed hitting power to start a left-hand­ er against them," Houk explained, "And I want to keep Grant and his fast ball, in case a spot situation comes up." Houk said he would like to talk to the pitchers he has at his command before making his decision, they wrll not arrive here until late today. As a matter of fact, neither club scheduled a workout at Municipal Stadium, where the game will be played starting at 1 p.m., EDT Tuesday, because so many of the players on the squad will not be here until late today. Chicago Junior Golf Tourney Opens Today CRYSTAL LAKE, 111. (UPI) The three-day 28th annual junior tournament of the Chicago District Golf Association opened today with a field of 161 golfers. The field was limited to duffers under 21 years of age. Champion Ray Barnhart, Downers Grove, will be unable to defend his title because he is over-age.

DETROIT (UPI) - Pint-sized Ron Musson turned giant killer Sunday to upset all-conquering Bill Muncey and set a blazing new speed record In winning the 56th running of the famed Gold Cup race. Musson, a mere 5-7 and 155 pounds, powered Miss Bardahl around the three-mile Detroit River course at a sizzling average of 105.212 miles per hour to edge Bill 'Cantrell and Gale V for the $10,000 first prize and the coveted Gold Cup. Musson and Miss Bardahl had 1,500 points, to 1,400 for Gale V, which won the final heat. '> Muncey and the famed Miss Thriftway, winners of the last two Gold Cup races, finished sixth in the field of 12. Miss Bardahl won all three of her preliminary heats to pick up 1,200 points going into the final heat. Gale V and' Tahoe Miss each had 1,000 points and had a chance to win it all if Miss Bardahl faltered. Cantrell, a former Indianapolis "500" race driver, made his bid for victory by picking up 400 points as he made a farce out of the final heat. But Miss Bardahl picked up 300 points for finishing second and that was more than enough for victory in the overall point system. Miss Bardahl, owned by Ole Bardahl of Seattle, set a Gold Cup lap record of 114.650 miles per hour in the second heat. More than 200,000 fans jammed the course.

(UPD-Through- out the boxing world today the bell was mournfully tolling "ten" for Jack (Doc) Kearns, the fight game's most fabulous manager, who died here early Sunday in his sleep. Jack Dempsey and others among the eight world champions who had been managed by 80- year-old Doc phoned or messaged their condolances to members of the family. Dempsey, 68, who teamed with Kearns and the late promoter, Tex Richard, in the Roaring Twenties to produce the first million-dollar fight gate, assured over the phone from New York: "I'l fly into Miami Tuesday afternoon."

Six major stakes are on tap, three of them worth $100,000 In added money — • the Hollywood Gold Cup at Hollywood Park, the Monmouth Handicap at Monmouth Park, and the American Derby at Arlington Park. Thrown in for good measure are the $75,000 Dwyer Handicap at Aqueduct, the $50,000 Oak's at Delaware Park, and the $25,000 Detroit Sweepstakes at Detroit. John W.

Kearns recently estimated that he had managed more than 500 professional boxers and that "since nearly all of my bpys were good earners, I figure their total purses must have exceeded $40 million, and that my share was about $13 million." He paused then and added, "And you'd never believe a man could go through that much money." Kearns, the real, "golden boy" of boxing, said heavyweight champion Dempsey's purses and other earnings totalled about $19 million, and that the money registered by Mickey Walker, former welterweight and middleweight champion, approximated $6 million.

Then he went to the home of his son, Jackie — a Miami fireman and one of the nation's foremost skin divers. It was at Jackie's home where he fell/last week while trying to walk into the yard and broke his right wrist. Since that injury he had been confined to bed,, where his son found him dead Sunday morning. Cards Snap Long Losing Streak, 5-0 SAN FRANCISCO (AP) - Ageless Stan Musial, to play his 24th All-Star game Tuesday in Cleveland, tuned up Sunday by banging out four hits and helping to break a Cardinal eight-game losing streak. The doubleheader started as a sad affair for the Cardinals aa they lost the first game to the San Francisco Giants, 4 -3. Willi* Mays scampered home in the 15th inning with the winning run on an error by Ken Boyer. But things brightened in the nightcap: Bob Gibson tossed a six-hit game ,and held the Giants scoreless as the Cards shoved across the plate five runs. A two-run homer for Musial in the seventh inning — his 472nd career round- tripper — iced the cake: He also hit a two-run triple in the first contest. Gibson's triumph gave him an 8-4 record. Loser was Juan Marichal, 13-4. The Cardinals were idle today, as are all other major leaguo teams.
