8 - Tues^ April 28,1964 kedlands Daily Facts Dodgers rout Colts as Howard, Fairly shine The Los Angeles Dodgers' National League rivals can be pardoned for wondering if Frank Howard is swinging a telegraph pole instead of a bat At 6 feet, 7 inches and 250 pounds, Howard looks big enough to carry a team on his back. And, as a matter of fact, that's just about what he's been doing for the hitless-wonder Dodgers this season as far as their offense is concerned. Howard is batting only .265 but he's hit six home runs and the 11 runs he's driven in represent 29 per cent of all the runs the Dodgers have scored in 13 games this year. The towering slugger, who recanted after announcing this spring that he intended to retire from baaseball, and firut- baseman Eon Fairly each had three hits and drove in two runs Monday night as the Dodgers beat the Houston Colts, M. Don Drysdale went the route with a six-hitter to make it two shutouts in a row for Los Angeles pitching and mark the first time this season the Dodgers have won two consecutive games. . The Dodgers tagged Hal Brown for a run in the second inning on two singles and the first of two doubles by Johnny Roseboro. They added two more in the fourth on Fairly's t«'o-run homer, another in the fifth on Willie Davis' homer and two more in the eighth when Howard rocketed the ball over the left field fence. Drysdale, who hadn't won in three previous starts, walked two, struck out five and didn't allow a Colt runner past second base. He gelded three of the Colts' six hits to Bob Aspromonte and his five strikeouts raised his career total to 1,504. The victory was the easiest the Dodgers have scored this hit attack. The loss was season (three of their four Bride's third of the season (three wins, mcidentally. havei been shutouts) and the sis runs matched their second highest game total of the campaign They beat the Milwaukee Braves, 1-0, Sunday with Phil Ortega pitching a four-hitter. Wins Firtt Gam* Les Naram, 23-ycar-old roolde obtained from the Baltimore Orioles, scored his first majori leigue victory as the Washington Senators defeated the Los Angeles Angels, 6-3, in Mon day's only other big league game. Narum yielded five hits and two runs in 6 1-3 innings befo.-e giving way to Marshall Bridges who stopped the Senators on a run and two hitu for the final 2 2-3 innings. Two-run singles by Mike Brumley and Don Zimmer in the fourth inning and a homer by Fred Valentine in the fifth inning paced the Senators' six Mc season against one victory. Alston says: Koufax, Podres out for at least two weeks HOUSTON (UPI) - Los Angeles Dodger Manager Walter Alston had his injury woes to- dayi but was thankful for some newcomers helping in the pinch. Alston told newsmen Monday his top-drawer pitchers Sandy Koufax and Johnny Podres will be out of the lineup at least two weeks. He said hurler Ron Perrano- ski would probably be out at least a week. The injury - riddled Dodgers were in Houston for a four game series with the Colts. Alston said Koufax' sore left arm will likely not let himf'good young kids" — Phil Or- pitch until after the important series against San Francisco starting May 1. Podres, who suffered a severely bruised left elbow also will be out two weeks, Alston said. Perranoski pulled his left eye muscle and is recovering but will not see action for at least a week. Alston said his pitching trou­ bles are not the only Dodger problem this year. He said there has yet to be a game when he felt hitting and pitching have both clicked in the same night "And when you don't play good, you don't have any breaks either," Alston said. He was asked what the Dodgers would do if his top pitchers were kept out longer than expected. Pleased With Youngsters "There's no doubt we'd have a lot of trouble," Alston said But he's pleased with the pitching performances of two tega and Joe Moeller. Ortega gave the Dodgers one bright moment in the otherwise dreary Milwaukee series by hurling the world champions to a 1-0 shutout Sunday. Moeller was tagged by Alston for pitching chores in the Hous ton scries. 'We are fortunate that wi have come up with these two,' Alston said. Proposed rule rejected No change in C.LF. i *ule$. Ronin reports A proposed C.I.F. rule which would have prohibited last sum mer swimming competition by high school athletes was unanimously rejected by the feder ation executive committee Charles Ronin, Redlands high school representative, reports. J. Kenneth Pagans, Commissioner of Athletics for the C.I.F., will present a report to the May 18th C.I.F. council meeting w-liich says in part: "Although restrictions must be maintamed relative to football practice during the summer vacation period, .bi;cause of the danger of injury, the need for insurance and Uie necessity -of having protective equipment the committee feels that restrictions should not be placed by the C.I.F. on high school boys participating in other athletic practice and competition. "This is in line with the phi- bsophy expressed in our awards rule, which provides Facts CTassified Ads Can Sell Anything CaU 793-3221 Uiat during the school year high school boys may not compete for or accept an award over $10 in value, but during the summer vacation period boys may accept any award which does not violate the amateur rules of the respective associa tion controlling the sport in which they are competing." Ronin says that there is con cem among C.I.F. leaders over the trend toward perfectionism in sports. "We feel that too many boys are concentrating solely on one sport, some on E year around basis, to the ex elusion of all other sports. It is to the benefit of the boy to have a broader experience in sports particularly in such sports as goU and tennis that will have lifetime value. "Some sports seasons are now so extended that a boy cannot compete in more than one sport although he may have talent for several sports. "Although this philosophy is being expressed, there is no proposed legislation along this line presently being condid- ered."

Brosnan, an author of several books and articles on basebaU, was released this spring by the Chicago Wlute Sox. Delay fighr ACCRA, Ghana (UPI) — The world featherweight UUe fight between champion Sugar Ramos and Floyd Robertson scheduled for May 2, has been Chudej's Rhoda wins by neck LOS ALAMITOS (UPI) — A field of 10 quarter horses headed by Dandy's Request, go to the post today in the featured Tulare Purse for 3-year - olds and up at Los Alamitos Race Track. In racing Monday, Chudej's Rhoda finished a neck ahead of Derussa to score a mild upset in the featured Buesa Park Purse. Flow AnUior finished third. The winner paid $193 to win. postponed one week. The delay was necessary because Ramos was declared medically unfit LOS ANGELES (UPI) -The new winning spirit manager Gil Hodges vowed he would instfll in the Washington Senators seems to be materializing. The Senators today, for example, were tied with the New York Yankees in the American League, although it was for sixth place. The Senators boosted their seasonal record to 6-6 last night when Hodges used rookie Les Narum in his first stut and the 23-year-old righthander came through with a 6-3 victory over the Los Angeles Angels. The old adage about Washington—"first in war, first to peace and last in the American League"—no longer applied to Hodges' club. For there were three clubs below the Senators in the standings and the former Dodger star first baseman said if his pitchtog continues to come around he was hopeful of more success. A couple of other e.x-Dodgers were mvolved in the victory as Don Zimmer and Mike Brumley each batted in a pair of runs in the fourth inning when the Senators ran their lead out of reach of the Angels. Ken McBride, generally credited with being the top Los Angeles hurler, was the victi'm as he suffered his third straight loss after beating Washington in the Presidential opener with the help of Julio Navarro. I don't know what's the trouble," McBride confessed after the game. "I feel good and I'm thinking right but I have no idea where the ball . i s going." In his previous start last week. McBride lost as a result of hitting four batters with pitched balls, equalling the modem major league record. Monday night he didn't hit any batters but walked four men and three of them scored. About all the Angels had to cheer was the excellent relief work of their bullpen and the brilliant play of shortstop Jim Fregosi. The bullpen Kept the Senators scoreless for 4 2.-3 m- mngs' after McBride got the hook from manager Bill Rigney. And Fregosi got two hits in four times at bat drove m one of the Angel runs and scored himself as he boosted his bat- tmg average to ;409 while doing his exceptional job defensively. But he aggravated a pulled muscle and may be side- Uned briefly. Rigney's relief staff now has an earned run average of 1.81, after 26 pitchers worked 44 2-3 innings during which they gave up 19 hits. Narum needed help in pitch- tog his first major league victory but Marshal Bridges took over for the youngster to the seventh and preserved his victory although he gave up the Angel run. For the record, Narum was not Uie only Washtagton rookie to achieve a measure of praise. Outfielder Fred Valentine got the sixth run off McBride with a solo homer to the fifth inntog, his first major league four- bagger. When the Angels and Senators resume hostilities tonight, Barry Latman who has yet to wto for Los Angeles, opposes Claude Osteen, 1-2, e.xpected to be one of the matostays of the Wash- mgton pitchtog staff. Fifth place teams to get series cut Palmer quit smoking, putts better SELL IT TOMORROW With low - cost aassified Ads ^ ^ By OSCAR FRALEY 280 239 Sports Writer 363 251 NEW YORK (UPI)-Amold 262 256 Palmer was explainmg, after a 238 282 practice round for the Masters 201 319 which he subsequenUy won to 196 427 a walk, the effects he had en countered after givtog up smoktog. I Uitok it had a reverse effect on my nerves for a while and imdoubtedly helped give me the puttfag yips," he said. But now I have it behtod me. feel stronger and have more endurance." He had chucked a $10,000-a- year cigarette endorsement to the process and, after listentog to him, a southern sports writer from the tobacco beit walked out shaktog his head wearily. I can just see my paper prmttog a story like that," he 188 250| grumbled. Palmer went on to romp home to the Masters and it had to be regarded as one of the year's 4op. blows to the cigar ette todustry. Others, like Ted KroU and young Mason Rudolph, to name just a couple, had quit before Palmer. Rudolph's father-to. law, a Clarksville, Tenn., surgeon, had told him: "You'll find those eight-foot putts a lot easier to drop.' The various reports on health damage caused a tremendous number of athletes to stop smoktog over the past coupte of years. But when Fred Hutch- toson, the lusty manager of th; Ctocinnati Reds, came down with - cancer, baseball players chucked the habit en masse. The main complatot from the ball players is that immediately they started putttog on weight "But I'll just work harder to get Uie weight off," said one. If it can get a big, healthy guy like Hutch I have to piill back." There are some aUiletes, however, who would take the gamble for a $10,000-a-year en dorsement fee. But now the cigarette industry has knocked them all out of Uie box with a new advertistog code which forbids a sales pitch through athletes, among oUiers. The new code, as far as ath 'letes is concerned, reads: "Cigarette advertistog shaO not depict as a smoker any person well known as betog, or havtog been, an athlete. "Cigarette advertistog shaU Inot depict as a smoker any person participattog to, or obviously havtog just participated to, physical activity requiring stamtoa or athletic conditiontog beyond that of normal recreation. Testimonials from athletes ...(who) would have special appeal to persons under. 21 years of age, shall not be used to cigarette advertistog." ! And which has to be a credit to a reeltog todustry. There can be little doubt tha€ when a Palmer,, or some other noted aUilete, galloped along at Uie top of the heap while puffing on a cigarette it had a bad effect on youngsters. From a health standpotot, however, it seems that there is much more work to be done to the educaticffl of our young sprouts. The tmtpy air time from a commercial standpotot undoubtedly win be picked up\ by the suds industry. Kow, instead of fbcir and one- half imuBgg at cigarette adver -l tistog and four and a half In- ntogs of beer commercials, you will be reeltog out to Uie refrigerator for ntoe inntogs. If we get many extra games we'll find we're raistog a race of alcoholics. Provtog; that, if they can't| grab you by the throat. Uiey'll get you in tiie liver. NEW YORK (UPI) - Major league baseball players have decided to help the not-so-fortunate of their own ktod by to- cludtog the fifth-place team to each league to the World Series pooL Baseball Commissioner Ford Fricfc revealed Monday that during this year's sprtog trato- tog period a vote was taken on whether or not to tocrease the first division to five clubs, and have the No. 5 teams share to Oie World Series cut The players approved by the overwhelm- teg majority of 478-58. The players were told that their vote would have to be approved by the owners but they were given a verbal guarantee it would be done. The vottog will be held at the mid-summer meetings. "This should be a mere for- maUty," Frick said. "We told the players that whatever they decided we would do." The new payoff system will be accomplished by taktog two per c^t from the top of the players pool and dividtog it between the fifth, place team to the American League and Uie fifth place team in the Ifation- al League. The commissioner's office gets 15 per cent of the total World Series receipts. The players, who share only to the first four games, get 60 per cent of the balance. The two series participants share 70 per cent of the players money while the second place club gets 15 per cent The third place teams share 10 per cent and the fourth place five per cent
