The Los Angeles Dodgers shortstop capped a three-run ninth-inning rally with a two- run triple off reliever Bob Moose that shot down Pittsburgh 5-3 Monday night. "I used the Bull-that's Al Ferrara's bat," said Versalles, describing his weapon. "This way we keep him in the line-up," he added, referring to the absence of Ferrara, who is out with a broken ankle. Versalles, far off the mark in 1967 after leading Minnesota to the American League pennant in 1966 by shooting down pitcher after pitcher, appears back on target now after last winter's trade to the Dodgers. He is only hitting .154, but the big hits are returning. He drove in four runs, including a game- winning two-run double in the ninth inning Sunday and now has 11 runs batted in, close to the National League lead. Cookie Rojas was the top marksman in the only other NL game as he set up one run with a hit and then singled home the winning run with one out in the 10th inning to give Philadelphia a 2-1 victory over San Francisco. Track Team Test Coming at Magnolia By RALPH ROUTON Star Sportswriter After a time-flying regular meet schedule, the Hope High track team must be at its best in the 4-AA championship competition this week in Magnolia. Tonight the preliminaries will be held at Magnolia's spanking- new track, Defending champ Crossett returns as a strong favorite, with Magnolia likely to be a strong opponent in the team scoring. Even though few records are likely to be reestablished, almost every event should bring this year's best performances with the large gathering of top athletes. The finals will begin late Saturday afternoon, again at Magnolia, and the top four finishers in each event will qualify for the State AA meet. The HHS squad, coached by Ronnie Higgins, should improve from last year's fifth-place finish. Buzz Andrews should have no problems in defend Ing his hurdles titles, both the 120 highs and the 180 lows. Also, the Bobcats have Jerry Hartsfield, who will be a strong competitor for the state meet positions. James Rowe, who as a junior this year has lowered the school record by 15 seconds in the mile, will be in a strong field in which he could better his present mark of 4:42,1. Rowe also will run the half-mile, an event in which he is untested. John Spragglns and Alan Phillips will compete in the 440 dash, and they also will be vital in the three relays. Also on Saturday will be the 4- AA tennis and golf championships. Magnolia, with state champ Todd Landes, should take the tennis title with ease. Saturday morning at 9:30a.m, the golfers tee off at Magnolia Country Club for an 18-hole test in individual and team medal play. Camden and Magnolia will be the golf favorites, with Hope, Malvern, and Warren very close. The individual favorites are Tommy Green of Camden and Magnolia's Sid Moore. From Hope, Ralph Routon will play in the first position, with the other participant undetermined at this time.

The IOC said it has received the necessary minimum of 36 votes approving its recommendation to withdraw South Africa's invitation. An IOC spokesman said at least 38 of the IOC's 71 members have thus far voted in favor of barring South Africa, thus ensuring the necessary simple majority, The vote was based on an appeal made by an emergency session of the IOC's executive board Sunday urging all IOC members to agree to the withdrawal of an invitation to South Africa. This reversed the postal vote taken in Grenoble, France, during the Winter Olympics which re-admitted South Africa to the Olympic Games with a majority of three. More than 40 nations, including the Soviet Union, had threatened to stay away from the Summer Olympics if South Africa were allowed to participate. The South Africans had said they would field a mixed team. Meanwhile, Jean Claude Ganga, secretary general of the 33- natlon African Sports Council, called the new IOC poll "a victory for wisdom and good sense." He said he was optimistic that African nations would be represented in Mexico City. However, the South African member of the IOC, Reg Honey, called on the nine-member Executive Committee to resign. Brundage, admittedly distressed over the controversy which brought politics onto the Olympic scene, told The Associated Press he has not made up his mind whether to accept a new term as IOC president if such an offer is made in Mexico City. Brundage, 80, has been head of the ICC for 16 years. He has been Involved In the Olympic movement since 1912. Minnesota Climbs Off Deck Again By LEW FERGUSON Associated Press Sports Writer S T.

Tuesday, April 23,1969 Records Are Set in Pro Cage Playoff BOSTON (AP) - The National Basketball Association'splay- off record book is getting a wholesale rewrite job with the Los Angeles Lakers meeting the Boston Celtics in a championship showdown. A check of the records shows that two of the game's all-time super stars, Elgin Baylor of the Lakers and Player-Coach Bill Russell of the Celtics, hold playoff marks in 10categories. Baylor's 24 points In a 107-101 loss to the Celtics In the opener of the best-of-7 series hiked his career playoff total to 2,857. Sam Jones, who had 19 for Boston, is runner-up with 2,520 points. Then come Jerry West of tho Lakers, whose 2 5 boos ted his total to 2,427, and Russell, who hit for 19for 2,394. Baylor also led with an average of 31 points a game, in field goals with 1,007 and in field goals attempted with 2,435, entering the series with Boston. Russell hiked his NBA playoff records in six departments. He has played the most games, 142; the most minutes, 6,424; grabbed the most rebounds, 3,628; collected the most personals, 453, and played on the most championship teams, 9.

Some Watch Horses, Hell Watch People Ruling Help U.S. Olympic Team PALO ALTO, Calif. Payton Jordan, head track coach of the U.S. Olympic team, says the recomrnr-ndation of the International Olympics Committee executive board to exclude South Africa "will obviously help our team." The Stanford head man made the statement to Northern California track and field writers shortly after two top Negro track stars said they had second thoughts about an Olympic Games boycott in the light of the IOC decision. "This is one of the things we were after," world record-holding sprinter Tomtnie Smith said Monday. "The chances of my going to Mexico City would have been much less had South Africa been allowed to participate."

(A P) While the 100,000-plus race fans watch the horses in the Kentucky Derby at Churchill Downs May 4, Al Schem will be watching the people. Schem is director of security at this home of the nation's most famous thoroughbred horse race, and a major portion of his job involves evicting a curious breed of undesirables, including touts, stoopers and pick pockets. Stoopers appear after the day's racing program, Schem said. They search the clubhouse and grandstand area for the ' $1 million worth of winning tickets that are Inadvertently discarded yearly at race tracks. "Some of them make their living at It, although not a very good one," Schem said. "We try to discourage this because they are always looking at the ground and keep bump.lng into people." Schem said many stoopers, so called because they walk In a stooped position, have developed a fine art of finding winning tickets. "They can flip the tickets over with their foot and tell at a glance If it's awinner," he said. The touts are real con men, they've al- Schem says, "They'll try to get De Vlcenzo a sucker to bet on a certain horse and agree to pay him for the tip. But the tout actually gets a sucker for each horse in the race, sure to get his fee." Schem purposely made his job tougher this year by suggesting enforcement of a rule prohibiting fans from bringing liquor to the races. Downs officials wont along with the request, and now Schern is faced with enforcing It. Schem said something liad to be done about the growing rowdiness in the Downs' Infield area. "It was really getting out of hand," he said. "They were bringing in big galvanized cans of Iced-down beer. It got pretty rough."
