NEW YORK (AP) - Gene Mauch and Gil Hodges long for tiie good old days when the spit- tall was an illegal, unsanitary. |ut generally accepted maneuver that was cheerfully overlooked by everyone concerned, * No more, • Mauch, manager of the Philadelphia Phillies, learned that the hard way Thursday night (juring a 3-0 loss to Hodges' New York Mets. 3 It was the bottom of the seventh inning and John Boozer was coming on to relieve Phillies' starter Woody Fryman. Boozer went to the mound for his eight warmup pitches, toed the rubber, bent and wiped his hand across it. Then he spit on "Bis hand. Trouble. "Ball one," shouted plate umpire Ed Vargo, Mauch raced out and argued. "How can he be charged with a ball on a warmup pitch?" he asked, "He went to his mouth inside the 18 foot circle of the mound," answered Vargo, "and that's a ball—anytime," "But the game's eight pitches away from being In progress," said Mauch. "It doesn't matter," answered Vargo. "What if he does it again?" continued Mauch, "I'll call ball two," said Vargo, "Do it," ordered Mauch, Boozer complied, "Ball two,' shouted Vargo, "What if he does it again?" repeated Mauch, "I'll call ball three and throw him out," replied Vargo, You know what Mauch did, Now with Boozer out, Dick Hail relieved. "And what," asked Mauch politely, "11 Hall "1'U forfeit the game to the fete," answered Vargo. J&uch wasn't prepared to go quite that far.

(AP) - Golfer Jack Nicklaus, without a tournament victory for the year and far down the list in official money winnings, said he came to the Houston Champions International ready to win. After the first round Thursday, nobody stepped up to argue the point. He fired a six-under-par 65 in the first round of the $100,000 Champions tournament to grab the lead by one stroke. Nicklaus toured the 7,166-yard champions golf club course with six birdies and no miscues. "These must be my kind of greens," the 28-year-old Columbus, Ohio pro said. "The ball rolled good. I drove the ball well and, of course, I putted well, too." Nicklaus edged Dan Sikes who had a 66. Roberto De Vincenzo, who lost the Masters title this year through a bookkeeping error, moved to within a stroke of the Nicklaus pace before fading. De Vicenzo posted a card that included two eagles and three birdies. One eagle came on what the Argentine called "a short putt of 100 feet." The other was on a 35-footer. On the back nine he got two bogeys and fell to a tie for third with George Archer, Tom Weiskopf and Miller Barber at 67. ,-; ;Reca]lingi,-.the.":Masters*'.'in- cident, De Vicenzo cracked to newsmen, "I check my score card very good today." Al Geiberger and Bob Mirphy set course records with front nine scores of 31, five under par. Geiberger finished with a 68, tied with Fred Marti and Hugh Royer.. Murphy bogeyed 11, 17 and 18 to drop into a crowd of golfers knotted at 69. Among those tied at 69 was Gary Player, the South African who was considered a mild favorite to win here. Groebner Is Marked Man in Cup Play By ED YOUNG Associated Press Sports Writer RICHMOND, Va. (AP) Clark Graebner was the first Yank on the firing line today as the United States marched into the 1968 Davis Cup tennis wars, but he shouldered the psychological burden lightly. "They tell me I'm the man on the spot," said the tall, bespectacled Graebner, at 24 the nation's fourth-ranked amateur. "But nobody had to tell me. I knew it already. "I still say if we all uon't win, there can be no possible excuses." Graebner's foe in the first singles match of the U.S. team's opening round American zone skirmish here with the British Caribbean team was the best player the visitors possess— Richard Russell, 21. The second singles on the aft. ernoon program sent the top man on the U.S. team, Arthur Ashe, against Lance Lumsden. Almost everyone, including ing the third-and odd man out -on the British Caribbean team, David Tate, figured Jt would take no less than a 14-carat miracle to bring the visitors victory in the three-<iay series of four singles and one doubles match on Byrd Park's hard courts. Tate, 21-year-old University of Miami, Fla., student who won't play at all in the American zone opener, said Russell "is capable of beating Graebner, but only on an extraordinary day—and he has a decided edge over Lumsden."

In his first start since his no* hitter last Saturday, the stocky righthander yielded six hits and whipped the New York Yankees 7*3, becoming the first Ameri* can League pitcher to win four games. In the only other contests, Minnesota edged Detroit 3-2 on Tony Oliva's lOth-inning single and Boston trimmed California 4-1. Detroit's league lead shrank to a half-game over Baltimore and one game over Minnesota. In the National League, Houston blanked St, Louis 4-0, Cincinnati whipped San Francisco 6-2 in 11 innings, Chicago nipped Pittsburgh 1-0, New York de- neated Philadelphia 3-0 and Los Angeles outlasted Atlanta 2-1 in 17 innings. Phoebus allowed his first hit with one out in the third inning —a run-scoring single by Horace Clarke. He also served up a two-run homer to Andy Kosco in the eighth. But he struck out 11 batters, whiffing Mickey Mantle four times, as the Orioles swept their tnree-game series from the Yankees and won their fourth straight game. "I felt a little pressure at the start," Phoebus said. "I wasn't relaxed. I wasn't as sharp as the last time." Andy Etchebarren, Paul Blair and Mark Belanger paced the Baltimore attack with three hits apiece. Etchebarren had a homer and Blair knocked in three runs. Minnesota, which had its game won until Detroit's Jim Northrup homered with one out in the ninth, almost blew it again in the 10th. Reliever Al Worthington loaded the bases with one out but struck out Bill Freehan and Dick Tracewski. Rod Carew doubled off Tiger reliever Dennis Ribant with two out in the top of the 10th and scored the winning run on Oliva's single. Carew also started a two-run rally in the fourth. Boston's Jose Santiago allowed only three hits and fanned nine in recording , his llth . straight regular season victory since mid-1967. Ken Harrelson supported him with a single, double, homer and two runs batted in. The triumph ended a four-game losing streak for the defending champion Red Sox. Johnson in mn (ARK) STAR, PrM fy Offset r May 3,1968 Praise of Offensive FAYETTEVILLE, Ark. (AP) — Mervin Johnson, assistant football coach at the University of Arkansas, complimented the first offensive unit Thursday following a one-hour offensive practice. He said the unit, quarterbacked by John Eichler of Stuttgart, "looked pretty good." Johnson said Thursday's workout was similar to Wednesday's practice. He said the offense touched on some of the things that had not been gotten to earlier in spring practice. HISTORICAL POST OFFICE DANVILLE, Ky.

Pickle brine. It keeps you out of spitball trouble with the umpires. The Great Spitball Controversy erupted again Thursday night in the midst of the New York Mets' 3-0 victory over Philadelphia. Phillies' reliever John Boozer was beginning his warmups in the seventh inning and was amazed to hear umpire Ed Vargo yell, "ball one." "How can he be charged with a ball on a warmup pitch?" screamed Manager Gene Mauch. "He went to his mouth inside the 18-foot circle of the mound," said Vargo, "and that's a ball anytime." A discussion ensued, with Mauch ordering Boozer to spit on his hand twice more and Vargo calling balls two and three and ejecting the by-now bewildered pitcher. Mauch inquired what would happen if Dick Hall, who replaced Boozer, should commit the same offense. "I'll forfeit the game to the Mets," said Vargo, ending the discussion. So by the time Bud Harrelson of the Mets finally got up, the count was 3-0. Ryan, the winning pitcher who allowed just three hits in the seven innings he pitched, said he stays out of trouble because of the pickle brine prescribed by trainer Gus Mauch Thursday's Results Boston 4, California 1 Baltimore 7, New York 3 Minnesota 3, Detroit 2, 10 innings Only games scheduled Today's Games Minnesota at Cleveland, N Oakland at Boston, N New York at Chicago, N California at Detroit, N Baltimore at Washington, N Saturday's Games New York at Chicago California at Detroit Minnesota at Cleveland .
