LOUB (AP) - Gov. Lester Maddox of Georgia got off the plane Monday one step ahead of Bob Goalby.

Masters champion, so .Astros. The game mercifully came to an end in typical Metsian fashion, with an error letting In the run after eight pitchers had battled valiantly to preserve the scoreless deadlock. In the only other National League games played, Los Angeles rallied heroically to beat clPittsburgh 3-2 and St. Louis ^topped Atlanta 4-3 In 10 Innings. -, f In the American League, * .Washington burled California 7,0, Oakland beat New York 6-3 '.jand Minnasota downed Baltl- "more 6-3. „ Shortstop Al Weis let a "grounder off the bat of Bob As- ^promonte go through his legs and that sent In Norm Miller, .who, led off with a single and ad- "No, it didn't take a bad "hop," said Weis afterwards. "I just blew it. It went right through my legs." Tom Seaver was the first of the Met hurlers, giving up just two hits in 10 innings and retiring 22 batters in a row after the third inning. Don Wilson did almost as wall in the first nine innings for Houston, but was long gone by the time Wade Blasingame, the fifth Houston pitcher, was officially declared the winner. The Dodgers won in a finish that would have made a writer of juvenile sports fiction blush. Bob Beale was breezing along on a one-hitter into the ninth, but Jim Lefebvre's two-out, two-run homer beat him. The first Los Angeles run of the inning, scoring on an infield out, was only the second scored in 44 innings this season. Until then, the Dodgers seemed likely to absorb their fourth shutout defeat in the five-game-old season. Bill Singer, who gave up only six hits himself, and retired 19 , batters in a row at one stretch, was the winner, Veale didn't allow a hit until the fifth when Rocky Colavito singled. And in yet another last-Inning finish, Johnny Edwards came up with a pinch single that drove in the winning run for the Cards. Pat Jarvis and Bog Gibson had duelled 1-1 Into the seventh when Hank Aaron's homer gave Atlanta a one-run bulge. But Roger Marls drove & two runs in the eighth for the Cards with a double and not till Dal MaxvU! singled in the 10th and rode home on Edwards' single was the game decided, the crowd wasn't interested in the governor. Goalby was returning to his Belleville, 111., home, just across the Mississippi River from St. Louis. He had just won the Masters Golf Tournament Sunday when Roberto De Vicenzo signed an incorrect scorecard and blew his tie with Goalby. Maddox was coming to St. Louis to attend a conference of Democratic governors. Goalby pocketed a $20,000 check for the victory and could look forward to all the fringe benefits that go with the Masters championship. Some people estimate a golf pro can pick up $1 million for a victory in the Masters. "I don't think it's really worth 38-year- be tb'a guy like Arnold Palmer, but I doubt it's worth that much to other guys. In any case, I don't know what Pm going to do. Pll just have to wait and see what happens. "I was elated with the outcome of the Masters, of course, though I'm sorry about what happened to Roberto," Goalby added. "But that's really secondary. I have to look at it from my point of view. Celtics Win to Cling to Slim Chance By RALPH BERNSTEIN Associated Press Sports Writer PHILADELPHIA (AP) Sam Jones isn't ready for a rocking chair just yet, the 34*year«old sharpshooting guard of the Boston Celtics may need a breather now and then, but he's as tough as ever in the Clutch, If you don't believe it, ask the Philadelphia 76ers. Philadelphia was all set Monday night to finish off the Col- tics in their best of 7 game Eastern final in the National Basketball Association. The 76ers led 3-1 and were at home before a sellout crowd of 15,202. Everything pointed to a Boston fade out, Something went wrong with the script. Boston won 122-104. Old and tired Sam Jones fired in 37 points. "When you're down 3-1," said Old Sam after he finished shooting up the 76ers, "You just pull up your socks and get the job done." Jones connected on 15 of 27 from the field and threw a natural at the foul line—7 for 11. He broke the back of the team he describes as the strongest physically he's ever seen. So, the series headed back to Boston for the sixth game Wednesday night. A seventh, if necessary is slated for Philadelphia Friday night. Jones didn't put down the defending champions all by himself. John Havlicek poured in 29 points and handed out 10 assists. Strikeout Ho. 2,000 Gets Ball WASHINGTON (AP) - Camilo Pascual has a ball commemorating his 2,000th strikeout and the Senator's pitcher will also treasure it as a reminder of his 33rd shutout, which keeps him on top of the American League pitchers. He is six ahead of Dean Chance of Minnesota. Pascual fanned nine as the Senators beat the California Angels 7-0 Monday and Chuck Hinton, his second, victim, gave Pascual Ids 2,000th strikeout. Don Drysdale of the Los Angeles Dodgers and Jim Bunning of the Pittsburgh Pirates, both in the National League, are the only other active major league pitchers with over 2,000 strikeouts. Pascual was the 19th man in major league history to accomplish the feat. The 34-year-old right-hander had his eye on the 2,000 figure with a month to go last season but broke his ankle September HOPE (AM) STAR, Printed tij Oftett Baseball Today's Baseball By THE ASSOCIATED PRESS National League W, 5 4 3 3 2 Houston St, Louis Pittsburgh San Fran, Chicago Atlanta 2 Los Angeles 2 New York 2 Cincinnati i Phila, 1 1V 2 2V 2 2V 2 3 4 L.

While temperatures hovered around the freezing mark in Mlnneapolis-St. Paul Monday night, Allison continued his ear* ly-season hitting binge with two doubles and a triple at Baltimore as the unbeaten Twins whipped the Orioles 6-3 for their fifth straight road victory. Allison led American League hitters with a .550 average and the Twins topped the AL standings as they headed back to Minnesota for Wednesday's home opener against Washington. The Senators blanked California 7-0 behind Camilo Pascual's six-hit, nine-strikeout pitching and the Oakland A's downed the New York Yankees 6-3 in American League day games. Detroit and Boston were rained out and Cleveland and Chicago were not scheduled. In the National League, St. Louis edged Atlanta 4-3 In 10 Innings, Los Angeles shaded Pittsburgh 3-2 and Houston outlasted the New York Mets 1-0 in a 24- inning marathon. Allison doubled in the second inning, tripled in the fourth and doubled again in the sixth—giving him eight hits in nine at-bats — before going out in his last two trips to the plate. The former Kansas fullback, who drove in one run and scored two, has gone ll-for-20 over-all, with four doubles, one triple and one homer. Right-hander Dave Boswell overcame a shaky start and held the Orioles to four hits. Tony Oliva's seventh inning single broke a 3-3 tie and Harmon Killebrew singled home two insurance runs in the ninth.

"I was paired with Roberto Saturday and he went through his card a lot quicker than I did," the Illinois University graduate recalled. "I'm very careful with my card. He barely looked at his. "But I don't think the rules should be changed," Goalby contended. "I don't mean that I necessarily agree with all of them, but they make the rules and I play by them," history.

Winthrop Rockefeller, told the Arkansas Supreme Court Monday that Section 5 of the Game and Fish Commission amendment did not require enabling legislation. Wright made the statement in Rockefeller's appeal of a Pulaski Chancery Court ruling prohibiting him from holding ouster hearings for some members of tho commission. Chancellor John Jernigan of Little Rock has ruled that the section needed enabling legislation. Rockefeller has said he has evidence of misconduct in office by some commissioners. However, he hasn't named the commissioners or said what his evidence is, The high court also took under advisement a suit to determine how many state senators have to run for re-election this year. Jernigan has ruled that only nine senators must run. Twentysix of the 35 senators were elected in 19GG because of a revision of the senatorial districts according to the U.S. Supreme Court's one-man, one-vote ruling. The election of 18 senators in one year and 17 two years later is required under the state Constitution.
