back in winning By IMttd Press InttnwHonal Sandy Koufax is back in the winning column and WiBie Mays is_ batting .411 so that National League pennant race can start any time, now as far as the, Los Angeles Dodgers and San Francisco Giants are con- eined. With the two "big men" in fine form, the Dodgers have evened their spring series with the New York Yankees and the Giants have raised their exhibition record to 21-7. Koufax broke a fbnr-game losing streak with six strong innings on the mound as the Dodgers beat the Yankees, 5-1, at Fort Lauderdale, Fla., Monday night while Mays hit a triple and two doubles in the Giants' 9-7 victory over the Chi' cago. Cubs at Phoenix, Ariz. Koufax allowed four hits and yielded only one run in bis next-to-last outing before next Tuesday's opener against the St Louis Cardinals. The Dodgers scored two runs in the fifth and three in the seventh against rookie left-bander Bob Meyer. A record 7,656 turned out to see the renewal of the . 1963 World Series rivaky. Rally to Win * The Giants closed the Arizona- phase of their training schedule on a victorious note with a three-run rally in the eighth after the Cubs tied the score in the seventh. Billy Williams hit his third homer of the spring for the Cubs, who had beaten the Giants in five of their previous seven meetings. Bo Belinsky pitched a no-hitter for 4 1-3 innings and allowed only three hits in six innings as the I,os Angeles Angels defeated the Cleveland Indians, 7-1. Bobby Knoop and Billy Moran each had a double and a single to lead the Angels' nine-hit attack. John Tsitouris yielded seven hits in seven innings as the Cincinnati Reds topped the Philadelphia Phillies. 5-3. Marty Keough had a two-run double and Deron Johnson a homer for the Beds and Gus Triandos and Cookie Bojas homered for the Phillies. Likely opening day pitcher Ray Herbert went seven innings in the Chicago White Sox' 2-1 win over the New York Mets. The White Sox scored both their runs off Tracy Stallard in the first inning on doubles by Mike Hershberger and Al Weiss, an infield single by Floyd Robinson and a double play hit into by Joe Cunningham. Tiger Top A's The Detroit Tigers rallied for three.runs in the ninth inning to top the Kansas City Athletics, 8-7. Dick McAuliffe and Pumal Goldy knocked in three runs each for the Tigers while rookie Dick Green had two hits, including a homer, for the Athletics. Successive singles by Joe Torre, Gene Oliver, Frank Boll ing and Roy McMillan produced two runs in the second inning and sent the Milwaukee Braves on their way to a 2-1 decision over the Houston Colts. Denny Lemaster and rookies Dick Kelley and PhU Niekro limited the Colts to six hits. The win was the Braves' 17th in 22 games. Manny Mota hit a grand slam homer and Gene Alley drove in four runs as the Pittsburgh Pirates womped the Minnesota Twins, 12-4. Willie Stargell and Bob Bailey had three hits each in the Pirates' 15-hit attack. Don Sdiwall went seven innings for the Purates. Wooden can't undmfahd (Nppic choices LOS ANGELES (UPI)-Coach John Wooden of the UCLA bas^ ketban:team,'the N&\A champions, has expressed surprise at somcof- the names oh the U.S Olympic basketball- team. Saying he was "immensely suri^ised at some of the selections;" Wooden took note of guards Larry Brown and Dick Davies of the AAU champion Goodyear Wingfoots being named. "I-never thonght they would pick two guards from the same team," Wooden commented on Monday. Wooden also said he ""can't understand how in the world Wally Jones of Villanova was left ott the-squad." Only one of the players firom Woodeh's national champion team, All-America guard Walt Hazzard, was named to the 12- man Ol^inpic squad. The Bruins top scorer, guard Gail Goodrich, was selected only as an alternate.

(EDITOR'S NOTE: This it the 17th of 20 dispatches «n the 1964 prospects of the mi> for league baseball teams.) By LEO H. PETERSEN UPI Sports Editor POMPANO BEACH, Fla. (UPI) — Manager GU Hodges, too nice a guy to finish last, vows the Washington Senators will not finish in the American League cellar in 1964. He isn't finding many base ball experts agreeing with him 50.000 seat stadium for Anaheim ANAHEIM (UPI)-Financial and engineering estimates on a proposed $20 million, 50,000-Eeat sports stadium were to be sub- mUted to the city council today by City Manager Keith Murdoch. The city and Orange County have agreed tentatively to the project in the hope of attracting the Los Angeles Angels here for the 1966 baseball season. Angel officials have been non committal about the reported move from Dodger Stadium. Orange Belt Golfers to meet Thursday . The Orange Belt Golfers will hold theur regular dinner meeting Thursday evening at 6:30 p.m. at the Redlands Country Club pro shop. Honored at the .dinner will be Bob Carruthers I who won the OBG club championship. Carruthers defeated Jerry Katzka 2-up for the title. Clyde Johnson won the first flight with a 3-up verdict over Ernie iQuinn; Clyde Pugh topped Bob JBeckley S and 4 in the second flight; and Ron Nedeau defeated Ken Morse 4 and 3 for the third flight honors. Another item of business will be the recommendations of the groups' board of directors for the 1961 officers. The recommendations include: Jack Grove, president; Howard Stephens vice president; Larry Jones, secretary- treasurer; Jerry Katzka, handicap chauman; Ray Mills, tournament chairman; and Tom Morrow, Mike Herbold, CI>-de Johnson, Cl>-de Pugh and (Dick SpniiU, directors. Not many agree Hodges VOWS Senators will not finish last They again see the Senators as a rag-tag outfit destined to fin- |ish lOlh for the third year in a row. Hodges is the first to admit that the outlook is not at all rosy, but he insists there is hope. He claims the Senators have helped themselves "100 per cent" over last year, although Uieir two main additions are first baseman Bill Skowron and relief pitcher Marshall Bridges. "They are used to winning," Hodges points out, "and they should help our players to get rid of their defeatist complex. And they also will help us defensively." Lack Pitching, Power , They should help, all right, but it sUU looks like Uie Senators will be short changed again in the pitching and power departments. They have problems everywhere although Hodges contends he is not concerned about his outfield. n TV-ill feature Chuck Hmton, .Don Lock and Jim King as reg- {ulars with Ken Hunt ahd rookie Fred Valentine in reserve. Lock is the big hope in that setup although Hinton probably is the best all-round player in the group. Lock hit 27 home runs and batted in 82 runs in 1963 although his batting average was only .252. But he struck out 151 times. , Hmton hit J269 wiUi 15 HR's {and 55 RBI's while King's av erage was .231 with 24 HR's and 62 RBI's. Hunt has a dismal 1963 season wiUi the Los Angeles. Angels because of a shoulder injury, .but if he shakes that off he is capable 'Of hitting the long baU. Valen- Itine batted .309 at Rochester last year, hitting eight homers and knocking in 34 runs. Skowron Will Help Hodges thinks SkonTon will help a lot although he also fell .off sharply in 1963 when he hit I only .203 with the Lps Angeles Dodgers. But he came alive in Uie World Series to help defeat his old teammates, the New York Yankees, and Hodges hopes Skowon will get back to his old form now that he is back in the American League. Only one other infield post is set — Ed Brinkman at short- slop, a fine glove man who batted only .228 last season. But I the Senators label him a real comer. The veteran Don Blassingame and Chuck Cottier, a fine fielder and weak hitter, are the leading second base candidates and v.i\h Don Zimmer hurt, John Kennedy, who spent mostl of 1963 in the minors, has the third base job. Zimmer is out wiUi a broken hand but could take over ^en his injury mends. The Senators feel that rookie Mike Brumley, who hit .292 at 'Spokane last season, could solve their catching problem. Behmd him are holdovers Don Leppert and Ken Retzer, who have not been imposing either as receivers or hitters. Leppert batted .236 last season and Rct- Izer .242. Pitching Poses Problem Pitchmg poses a lot of problems, but that is the one department which Hodges thinks Santa Anita races to close tomorrow ARCADIA OJPD-The West- em Harness Radng Association closes cut its 1964 spring meet at Santa Anita Race Track Wednesday with the featured $10,000 Spring Maturity Trot Express Rodney and Glidden Hanover were expected to be cofavorites in the field of six. Spen Song scored a neck victory over Golden Will in the Monday $10,000 Spring Sophomore Trot for 3 - year r olds, staged before the regular program began. In the featured Eagle Rock Pace, Royal Jerry won by two and a half lengths over Sharon iNews and Bud H finished Uiird. [The winner returned $3.40. could lead the Senators out of the wilderness. It depends largely on whether Tom Cheney and Dave Stenbouse are healthy. After winning his first four games last year, Cheney hurt his back and saw litUe action after mid-July, winding up with a 8-9 record. Stenbouse, troubled by bone chips which have [been removed, was 3-9 after winning 11 games the year be I fore. If they are okay, they give Hodges two right-handed start ers. A third right-handed start er will be Bennie Daniels (5-10). Left-hander Claude Ostcen I could well be the ace of the sUrting staff. He was 9-14 last year. Blades open with Seals Wednesday LOS ANGELES (UPI) — The Los Angeles Blades have been warned that their 12 victories over the San Francisco Seals in 16 regular season Western Hockey League games don't mean a thing as far as the playoff finals are concerned. The Blades and Seals open their best of seven series for he \VHL championship Wednesday night at the Sports Arena. Blade coach Alf Pike told his players during practice Monday "The overall season record doesn't mean anythmg in playoff hockey. Things have worked out just in reverse so far in this league with the No. 1 club (Denver) and No. 2 (PorUand) knocked out. Silverman calls for National boxing board SAN FRANCTSCO (UPI)-Sol Silverman, peppery attorney who heads California's committee for safeguards in boxing, has come out swinging against what he terms the "muck and Ruckus" of the recent Cassius Clay-Sonny Listen world heavy weight tiUe" fight. Silverman claimed that the need for a National Bo.xing Commission was underscored by what he called "the Clay-Liston fight wiUi all its muck and ruckus." The failure of the Miami [commission or Florida officials to thoroughly investigate and fully disclose all dubious phases of the Listen - Clay fight only served to re-emphasize the pressing need of central controls," Silverman said m a letter to |Sen. Philip L. Hart (D-Mich.) Hart heads the Senate Antt- iTrust and Monopoly Sub- Committee which recently inves- Itigated Uie Feb. 25 bout. USGA has 'ruined' tournament golf By OSCAR PRALEY UPt Sports Writer. AUGUS^.'^, Ga. (UPI)-U.S. amateur champion Deane Beman charged today Uie U.S. Golf Association has "ruined" tournament golf by creatmg a pattern for its events in which "onlb'' one or two players have a chance to win." "Ihc USGA has set a killing precedent by insisting on extra kng courses vhich favor the big bitters and don't pay off on skill or finesse," said the reigning amateur king, a Bethesda, Md., insurance man. "There are a lot of great players here for the Masters but I don 't see how anybody can beat Jack NicUaus." Beman contends that the .USGA and golf architects should start figuring oat how to penalize Uie long ball hitters to bring them back tc the rest of Uie field. ."Maybe they shouldn't be penalized." he added as an after- [Uiought. "But Uiey should have to play imder the same conditions that the shorter hitters face or else lift restrictions on the ball so that everybody can bust it" The short husky wiUi Uie crew cut pointed to the Augus ta National Golf Club course where the Master; opens Thursday as an example. "They put in a watering sys tem and the sprinkler heads are at the 225-yard mark," he said. "So the fairway is soaked from 200 yards to 250 yards. The average good player hits it |mto that area and doesn't get any rolL Nicklaus and a few others can knock it past that wet spot and usually get dry roll and a downbUl contour that offers them more assistance." The Masters course favors the long hitter even more than most Beman contended, because of its wide open fairways and lack of rough. "They can really be reckless [here, Uiose long bitters," he gnmted. "Here you can hardly believe the edge this gives a hitter such as Nicklaus. Why, he can play badly and be close to the top while the rest of us BoBelinslty redeems with six great innings PALM SPRINGS, Calit (UPI) — Southpaw Bo Belinsky redeemed himself by pitching six superlative innings as the Los Angeles Angels whipped the aeveland Indians, 7-i, Monday in an exhibition game. Belinsky, who has liad his problems on the mound this spring, hurled four and one- thurd frames of no-hit ball and yielded a total of only three hits during the six innings he pitched. Art Fowler, Bob Duliba and Don Lee followed Belinsky and each hurled one hiUess inning. I The Angels smashed six runs |off thelndians' righthander Jim (Mudcat) Grant, including three tallies in the seventh. Bobby I Knoop and Billy Moran led Uie Angel attack wiUi a double and a single each. Dean Chance was to start for the Angels today against the Indians' Jack Kralick, in the last exhibition game against major league opponents for the Cherubs until they meet the Dodgers Saturday night and Sunday in Chavez Ravine. The Angels play their Hawaii farm club Wednesday and Thursday at Indio. , General manager Fred Haney {announced that the Angels have I.don't know bow good the Philaddphia Eagles will be next fall, but Joe Kuharieh will have tiie most antiseptic team in footbalL No guy jumping into a dirty laundry basket or even pushing the joys of cigar smoking from the bottom of- a manufactured pile-up. No knuckles dented with splattered teeth. No more pub crawling instead of studying the play book. Joe's whisk broom (that's a broom which whisks a guy away from Philadelphia) has Uie Eagles looking cleaner ttan my cellar after the monthly pa|per drive. Take his latest, quarterback Adolph (Sonny) Jurgensen and somebody for quartvback Nor!man Snead of the Redskins, and somebody. That's like choosing between Bobby Layne and Billy Wade. Myself, I'm a Jurgensen man, even if he's had a lot more success the last couple of years with the nuances of the twist than with the Eagle offense. Sonny, who once threw 32 touchdown passes in a single season, is tou^ and he has what's known in the trade as quick re- 1 lease. Maybe the trouble wiUi Snead is that I've never seen, him have a good day. Everybody looks at. his deancut 6-4 tormentors into a hospital, minus a few teeth, and then was [released. Scotti has since signed with Los Angeles. Kuharich's predecessor, Nick iSkorich, normally amiable, once I livened up a draft meeting by testing the solidity of the floor- ling at Uie Chicago Shera- tor, with 300-pound Bucko Kilroy as the hammer. One of Joe's first acts in office was to send Tommy Mc- j Donald to Dallas. Tommy, a briliant receiver, doesn't fight or anything like that But he's brash and he has hung by his fingertips from hotel ledges. He also got his teammates mad by cornering a good slice of the endorsement market around Philadelphia. Jurgensen disagreed with his coaches, off and. on the field, and he didn't improve his standing with a short strike last summer, when he and stand-in King Hill walked out of camp, leaving the Eagles quarterback-less until their salaries were raised. Jimmy Carr, a defensive back traded with Jurgensen, got in dutch by refusing to sign his contract until the season was almost over. If you think Hill is going to be around much longer, check the fact that punter Sam Baker was among those phjrsiqae 'and drools, but unnif- Ifuled Norman looks to me as though he doesn't want to get anybody mad at him, including red-dogging Imebackers. And it's a fact he was once highly sought-by the Peace Corps. Of course, some of the house- sweeping preceded coach Ku- Iharich as far back as last fall when defensive back Ben Scotti found it offensive for a couple of big linemen to call Commissioner Pete Rozelle "guinea" and then bracket him in the same signed to train in Palm Springs for the next three years.

King was paid more for kickmg last year than anything else. Kuharieh probably isn't through. A defensive end who started Uie Scotti brawl isn't counting on the Eagle training camp at Hershey.

Yanks look strong Cronin figures only four teams have chance BOSTON (UPI) — While he still would prefer a 10-team pennant race, realistic President Joe Cronin figures only four teams have good chances to take tiie 1964 American League flag away from Uie iNew York Yankees. Cronin returned home Monday from his annual tour of the spring training camps to announce that the Minnesota Twins, Chicago White Sox, Detroit Tigers and Baltimore Orioles appear to be the most improved teams this season. The order of listing was his but he warned newsmen to attach no significance to it and repeated his statement that the Yankees "look very strong" again this season. Cronin said that new Yankee Manager Yogi Berra was not worried about his regular lineup but was concerned about his pitching staff. Cronin added that the Yankee defenses looked "as good as ever" in Florida spring training games hut noted that slugger Mickey (ManUe wasn't "stepping into" practice game pitching while he was present. Cronin .said he was relying {on reports from other American League officials on the three teams, Boston, Los Ange!les and Cleveland, who had been training m the West and added that his brief views of both the Kansas City and Wash- jington teams in Florida showed both to be somewhat stronger than they were a year ago.

"Because of his length off the tees," Beman added, "he can play only reasonably well and still beat me like a drum." The key to bringing the big hitters back to Uie field, Beman holds, is to lay out courses on which accuracy is demanded of them. 'The trouble all is planned for Uie. shorter hitters," he said. "And, m the process, the course is left wide open for the sluggers. There's no way we can hit three iron approaches from trouble areas whUe the .long hitters are hitting seven and eight irons from trouble YOUR PASSPORT TO SECURITY BXVIKCS *X<OAir ASSOCIATION Redlands Heme Office FHHi St. « CHnM Av*. m-Vn Fofitana Branch Ml Whaelar Ave. VSmttrOMlM Yoealpe Branch 3504 Yucai^ Boulevard 7V7 -0in BeagiMiit Branch TS Beaumenf Avwue
