Inouye of Hawaii and Frank E. Moss of titan. Harris and Mondale are Humphrey's campaign managers as co-chairmen of United Democrats for Humphrey, whose honorary chairman is former President Harry S. Truman. Humphrey, who will be 57 on May 27, is older than Kennedy, McCarthy and former Vice President Richard M. Nixon, the only announced major GOP presidential candidate. But Harris and Mondale are putting "the accent on youth in building the United Democrats for Humphrey organization. Humphrey's campaign theme of national unity will call upon his rivals to make clear they will support the party nominee if they are defeated on the road to the nomination. He has said he will take the record of the Johnson-Humphrey administration to "every corner of the land." And he has vowed not to retreat from that record. Humphrey has said there is a great need for national unity, contending all Americans "must put our differences behind us." He has called for "a permanent moratorium on the Inflammatory demagoguery which pits men against each other— for a moratorium on the vocabulary of vio» lence," Humphrey's announcement comes on the 1,193rd day of his vice presidency, a post he was elected to in 1964 following 16 years in the Senate, He was twice elected mayor of Minneapolis after helping By 8ICHARD AIDEN KNIGHT The schedule of Solunar Periods , as printed below , haj been taken from Richard Alden Knight's SOLUNAR TABLES Plan your days so that you will be fishing in good territor or hunting in good cover during these times, if you wish to find the best sport that each day has to offer.

N.Y.-iNKAJ-I'hil Lin/, didn't realize how brave he was when he volunteered to catch batting practice the opening week of the season. The New York Mets were in San Francisco, and on the mound stood a tall, slightly bowlegged righthander. His name was Lynn Nolan Ryan. Linz, who's a spare infielder when he doesn't play the bar inonica, motioned for Nolan, as the Mets called him. to flip a few warm up tosses. The motion was easy and fluid. The ball looked normal in release, on a belt-high line to the plate. Phil, and thudded into the netting. Phil quickly adjusted his glasses. Nolan threw again. Same hop, same bewildered look on Linz' face as he missed the throw. Altogether, the phenomenon was repeated five times. "I've heard of a pitcher throwing the ball by a hitter," said a writer to whom Phil related the experience, "-—but never by a catcher." A Ryan cult, embellished by such lore, has already pervaded the National League in this young season, though he- started it with a total pitching experience of three innings in the major leagues. "He's the fastest I've ever seen," said Red Schoendienst, manager of the St. Louis Cardinals. "Period." "I haven't seen anybody like him since Bob Feller," said Ralph Kiner, who hit 369'homers in the major leagues and now broadcasts the Mets' games. "I just keep hoping," nodded Ron Swoboda, who sometimes has to face him in batting practice, "he'll throw curves. He's virtually unhittable." Jerry Grote. who has to catch him in regulation games, said Ryan throws a ball that "just keeps getting smaller and smaller." "Then CHUNG," said Jerry, "it's right on top of you and you better hope the mitt's in the right place. He's faster than (Sandy) Koufax, or anyone now pitching in the league. Maybe Bob Gibson (Cardinals) is closest. He's got twice the speed of Juan Marichal." "And," added Swoboda, "he throws strikes." Enough for the testimonials. Let's try to make him human Because outside of Alvin, Tex., and a few bookkeepers in the Is Mays Earning Pauper's Salary? Iront ofTice of the Mets. nobody really ever heard of Nolan Hyan. Alvin, Tex., contained in thciiiust official census a few more than 5,000 residents. It's between Houston and the Gulf of Mexico, which isn't cowboy country. Nolan's father is a supervisor in the oil fields. "The boys kid mo because I'm bowlogged." Nolan grinned shyly. "I can ride a horse." He is 21 years old married, and his wife will join him in late May after the semester closes at Alvin Junior College. Nolan went to school there, too, for a year, and plans to go back. When he was a little kid. his older brother wanted to be a pitcher. He made Nolan come out in the back yard and catch tor him. Nolan was throwing the ball back harder than the pitches coming in. His brother settled lor u career as an Air Force captain. Nolan, a skinny 150 pounds, was drafted by the Mets at the Class A level (fifth round) of the 1965 baseba'll draft, so obscure that the Houston Astros just up the road didn't bother to check him out. In 1966, at. Greenville, S.C.. Hyan started stirring "super" reaction by striking out 272 batters in 183 innings, He also started filling out. He's now padded up to 195 pounds, spread impressively over six feet two inches. But Ryan's pitching pace slowed down. He was bothered by linger blisters in '66. He tried to throw too hard at Jacksonville last spring after a stretch in the Army and snapped a tendon below his right elbow. In spring training this year he bad tender biceps, an inflamed elbow, a sore forearm and. most recently, blisters, so that the Mets weren't sure whether to pitch Nolan or exhibit him at medical conventions. They fed him to the Cardinals, the best hitting team in baseball, with the consequences implicit—if he flunked, he'd go back to the minors. Nolan struck out five of the first six batters he faced. "It he were a relief pitcher," said Lin/., "he'd be the greatest who ever lived." He fingered his fielder's glove gratefully.
