Houk apparently not only stirred up the hottest controversy of the 1063 All-Star game but ley's string of 24 consecutive scoreless innings. Stuart's first homer in fourth inning was his first round- tripper since June 20, and the two runs he knocked in were the first also lit a fire under the big first for him since June 28.

Chief concern from most quarters, however, is the well - being of Patterson who figures to be heading for a pack of trouble. In fact the more outspoken say that he must be out of his mind for insisting on a return match just because of a clause in the contract. One thing is certain—Patterson -should have a healthy respect for .Listen's punch after his abbreviated stay in the ring last fall. In this Chicago meeting the soft- spoken, gentleman fighter went out quicker than a two-bit lighter in a windstorm. It has been said, and with some degree of accuracy, that the best thing that happened to Patterson the last time was that he did not recover before being counted out by the ' referee. Sonny Unhappy Liston, who never goes out of his way to say anything nice about his opponents, is especially resentful when discussing his July 22 scrap in Las Vegas. He feels that the whole thing is unnecessary and is apparently out to prove it. In one statement to the press Liston pointed out that it would be much better for him and Patterson to have it out in closed gymnasium rather than to inflict the "atrocity on the public." • The consensus is that even if a tragedy is averted the chances of Patterson lasting much longer than he did last September are slim. No one denies that Floyd has determination but the thought is that this could lead to a tragic ending. It was rumored earlier that Liston was far out of shape but authoritative sources have it that the champ arrived in camp at 220 pounds, slightly • more than his fighting weight. The discouraging word for Patterson is that he is training hard and apparently getting meaner every day. • But as the saying goes, hopes springs eternal and Patterson and his small band of faithful followers are anxious to prove that the last fight was all a big mis­ take. It was a mistake all right and the danger is that there could be an even bigger one on July 22. If Patterson should come out the winner it should trigger the biggest senate investigation since the days of Joe McCarthy. -J- More than 300 tickets are now on sale for the American Legion Chicago baseball excursion to the Chicago Cub-St. Louis Cardinal doubleheader on July 28, but reports have it that they are going fast. This is the fifth annual baseball excursion sponsored by the local legion post. It's a package deal with one price including the train fare, bus transportation to and from the ball park and box seat tickets. Interest this year has been even greater than in the past with both the Cubs and Cardinals still very much in the running for the N.L. pennant. Currently St. Louis, in third place, is leading the Cubs by just a half game. Twins on one hit for three in nings, received credit for his ninth win against one loss. The victory moved the Red Sox into third place and dropped the Twins into the! fifth. . The Los Angeles Dodgers nipped the New York Mets, 1-0, the Philadelphia Phillies drubbed the San Francisco Giants, 10-2, the Cincinnati Reds defeated the Chicago Cubs, 3-1, and the Houston Colts beat the Pittsburgh Pirates, 2-0, in the National League.

The Colts got both their runs in the first inning on Ernie Faxio's double, a bunt single by Al Spangler, extending his hitting streak to 14 games, Pete Runnels' single and Carl Warwick's forceout. Manager Expects to Cash In on Clay's Big Mouth NEW YORK (UPD —Manager of all net proceeds from the Waterloo 6, Cedar Rapids 4 Funeral Rites Set MINNEAPOLIS, Miss. (UPD- Funeral services will be held Thursday for Dave Macmillan, who guided the University of Minnesota basketball team for 18 years. Macmillan, a member of the original New York Celtics, died of cancer on Tuesday at the age of 77. READ THE WANT ADS! Bill Faversham is demanding indirectly that Cassius Clay, Kentucky's "mighty mouth," get more than $1 million at the age of 21 for his 20th professional fight. That's the Faversham' platform today in the negotiations for a Sonny Liston-Cassius Clay heavyweight title match at Philadelphia's Municipal Stadium Sept. 30. Pilot Bill is demanding "more than 20 per cent of all net proceeds." He didn't say how much "more." " Negotiations will be resumed Monday or Tuesday by telephone, said Faversham today as he headed back to Louisville, Ky,, after Wednesday's five-hour conference at a New York hotel with President Bob Nilon of Inter - Continental Promotions, Inc. Nilon is a brother of Jack Nilon, advisor to champion Liston. Although brothers Bob and Jack are not associated in the Inter-Continental Corporation, .Bob does share Jack's confidence that Liston will keep dhis crown on July 22 in his return fight with Floyd Patterson at Las Vegas, Nev. Accordingly promoter Bob is moving briskly with plans for the September extravaganza. And it fight Net proceeds are those that go to the promotion after all taxes have been paid on the gross gate and radio money, and after the promotion gets its share of theater-television money and movie money from exhibitors and distributors. Bob Nilon estimates that the total net receipts, including a net $600,000 gate, vyill' be about $5 million and that Clay's proffered 20 per cent of that net would be "a million bucks." ^3) By The Associated Press AMERICAN LEAGUE W.

Major Leagues Cut Down On High-Priced Bonuses NEW YORK (UPD - High school and college baseball whiz kids have found out that the major league giveaway program has drastically cut down on its prizes. Bonus payments to young prospects are down approximately 75 per cent from the past few free- spending seasons, a United Press International survey showed today.

The 21-year-old Torborg, who won the national collegiate batting championship with a .537 average, signed with the Los Angeles Dodgers and is playing for Albuquerque in the Texas League. Dave Bennett, younger pitching brother of the Philadelphia Phillies' Dennis Bennett, and Wally Bunker, a high school hurler from San Bruno, Calif., are next in line with $75,000 bonuses. Bennett, who pitched for the University of Oregon, signed with the Phils. Bunker collected his loot from the Baltimore Orioles. After these top three, the bonuses drop off to around $50,000, although most youngsters are settling for $10,000 to $20,000 inducements to turn pro this summer. That is far short of the $125,000 to $150,000 bonanzas paid in 11X31 to Bob Bailey by the Pittsburgh Pirates, and to Bob Garibaldi by the San Francisco Giants last year. The big reason for the decline in bonus handouts is the first- year draft rule, which was i pushed through by the "have-not" clubs to curb such lavish spend- l 1! 'H ing. Meanwhile, the "have" clubs like the New York Yankees, Milwaukee Braves and Dodgers complain that the rule is "socialistic" and an unwarranted curb on their efforts to sign good talent. The deterrent in the rule is this: All first-year players must be promoted to the parent club's roster by the end of the season in which they are signed; and only one such player can be optioned to the minors during first- year status. A first-year player not promoted to the parent club's roster becomes subject to the December draft at price of $12,000 or $8,000. The Houston Colts, for example, have several first-year players on their roster. If they signed any more, they would be faced with the dilemma of overloading their 40-man roster with inexperienced talent or letting some of last year's bonus kids go to another club at a bargain price. Other clubs find themselves in the same predicament. Result: Few clubs have gone in for large bonus spending this season.

READ THE CLASSIFIEDS! resulted from a catch by left- fielder Tommy Davis that can be described as sensational or invisible depending upon where you happened to be in the Polo Grounds. Pinch runner Al Jacksbn was on first base and one man was out when Podres delivered the pitch to Frank Thomas. Thomas hit it on a soaring line toward the left field stands and Jackson took off from first base with his head down. Podres took one look toward left field. Then he, too, put his head down and started to walk toward the center field clubhouse. "I thought it was gone," he said. "I would have bet anything it was a homer." Podres had reached second base in his mournful journey toward the clubhouse when a funny thing happened: The ball came flying in from the outfield practically into Podres' glove. Davis, leaping high against the fence in a. haze of smoke and light that made him practically invisible from many points in the park, had hauled down the ball. Thomas was already around first base. Jackson was nearing third. And there was Podres at second base—Johnny on the spot when Davis' throw came out of the haze. Podres made the catch of the relay in what was almost self defense and then tossed the ball to first-baseman Ron Fairly to complete the game-ending double play. No protest was possible because no one in the Met dugout could have seen the play, and umpire Lee Weyer, hustling out from his second-base post, quickly and firmly ruled that Davis made the catch.
