Star ta| — «••" Still Lose By MIKE BRf SON Associated Pr&si Sports Writer AMES, Iowa (AP) - Perfec* tion is the name of the game in the U,S, Olympic wrestling trials at Iowa State University, It's one of the few forms of competition where you can win •^•and still lose, the meet is conducted under international rules, and the only way a gappler cm avoid being assessed certain penalty points -called black marks is 'to come up with a pin, Anything less, even victory by decision, results in a penalty, : After some 10 hours and more than 180 matches during the first two rounds of the trials Thursday, only 15 men were without a black mark, including a former NCAA champ and two recent AAU winners. Scoring two pins each were heavyweight Larry Krlstoff of Carbondale, ni., 191.5-pounder Wayne Baughman of Colorado Springs, Colo, arid Dick Sofman of New York. 7 Kristoff, member of the 1964 U.S. Olympic team and heavyweight winner in last month's National, AAU meet, took only 2 minutes, 12 seconds to throw Dick , Schumacher of Suffern, N.Y., after stopping Roy Worthington of Carbondale in 4:23 earlier in the day. Baughman, a former NCAA king, made his second pin of the day a 2:21 conquest of Charles Arnold of Evanston, 111. AAU winner Sofman polished off Dave Grinrod of Madison, Wis., in 1:32 after pulling a quick pin in the opening round. :,,..• Several other 'NCAA or AAU champions remained unbeaten, but were assessed penalties after winning either one or both of their matches by decision. A wrestler loses.a half point if he wins a decision by 10 points or more; a full point if he wins any other decision; Mo points If he draws; three points if he •points if he loses by a fall. When he was accumulated six penalty .points, he is eliminated.

Rousseau Ruins Doug's Homecoming MONTREAL (AP) - Bobby Rousseau ruined Doug Harvey's homecoming Thursday night by scoring at 1:13 of overtime to give the Montreal Canadiens a 4-3 Stanley Cup victory and 3-0 lead in the best-of-7 final series against the St. Louis Blues. It was the first time in four years that the 43-year-old Harvey had played in the Montreal > fpsurn., .after;; spending-, 14 /seasons of glory with the Canadiens before being sold to the New York Rangers. He was called back up after the Kansas City Blues, with whom he was playing coach this season, were knocked out of the Central Professional League playoffs. But his duty with St. Louis was cut short by a groin injury and he managed to see only brief playoff action against Philadelphia and Minnesota. He hadn't played in the other final games, won 3-2 in overtime and 1-0 by Montreal in St. Louis. Rousseau, whose goal was his first playoff winner in eight years as a Canadien, was just breaking into the big time and played only 15 games in Harvey's last year with Montreal. But Thursday night Rousseau slammed the puck past veteran St. Louis goalie Glenn Hall after winger Dick Duff had split Harvey and defense partner Barclay Plager to get two tries at a goal only to be held off by Hall, Yvan Cournoyer, Serge Savard and Ralph Backstrom were the other Canadiens to get the puck past Hall, while Red Berenson, with two goals, and Frank St. Marseille, beat Lome Worsley in the Montreal net, The fourth game of the series Is set for Saturday at 3 p.m., EDT, and will be televised by CBS. is headed by the Michael Phipps* entry of Bold Favorite and Llthlot and Clifford Lussky's Blarney Kiss.

US£ PWHAL DAY14GWT SAVINGS TIME tote P«y Minor Major Minor Ma lor Muy 10 Friday $:5Q UhOS 4:?& 19:30 Chicago Back on Flag Road By MIKE RECHT Associated Press sports Writer The Chicago White Sox are back on the road to the pennant race, using a new way-for them-to travel, The Sox are winning with home runs, Pete Ward, their newly discovered slugger, smacked two solo shots, his seventh and eighth of the season, and powered the Sox to a 4*2 victory over the Oakland A's Thursday night, But Ward is not alone, Joining him have been Tommy Davis, Luis Aparicio, Tom McCraw and pitcher Gary Peters as Chicago has turned around from its 0-10 start to win eight of its last 13 games. Peters went 8 2-3 innings, giving up only five hits, for the latest triumph which moved the still last-place Sox only 7V 2 games behind American League leading Baltimore. Minnesota broke a third place tie with Oakland by coming from behind for a 4-3 10-inning triumph over California on Rod Carew's double and Cesar Tovar's single, The Washington Senators snapped a six-game losing streak in the only other AL game, beating Boston 3-1 behind the pitching of Phil Ortega and Dave Baldwin. In the National League, Los Angeles blanked the Chicago Cubs 6-0 in the afternoon, and at night Philadelphia beat Cincinnati 7-3, Houston whipped San Francisco 5-3 and Atlanta downed Pittsburgh 4-2 in the only games scheduled. Ward's first belt in the fifth inning tied the game at 2-2 and his second in the seventh off starter Lew Krausse put the White Sox ahead to stay. Peters left after Rick Monday tripled with two out in the ninth, and Bob Locker got the last out as Chicago's always stingy pitchers continued to take advantage of the hitting windfall. The victory was only the second against three losses for Peters, who won his last game by hitting a grand slam homer. Three days later, McCraw hit a slam for the normally light-hitting Sox and gave Joe Horlen his first victory. Before that, it was homers by Ward, Davis and Aparicio that broke the Sox out of their horrible start and put some steam in their pennant hopes. Carew, last year's Rookie-of- the-Year in the AL, took another step on the sophomore jinx by raising his average to .337 with three hits, scoring after each one. He singled in the first inning, stole second and scored on Harmon KUlebrew's single for a 1-0 Minnesota lead, but the Angels' Tom Satriano wiped that out with a three-run homer off Jim Merritt in the third. After Ted Uhlaender's bunt single scored Tony Oliva, who had doubled, from second base in the seventh, Carew and Tovar singled in the eighth and Carew scored on Frank Kostro's pinch sacrifice fly for a 3-3 score. With Ron Perranoski holding off the Angels for two Innings for his first AL victory, Carew and Tovar teamed again in the 10th agains Jim Weaver, Ortega helped himself with his bat to his fourth victory, doubling in Washington's third run In the sixth. He scattered seven hits in seven innings before Baldwin came on. Ed Stroud had singled and stole second before Ortega's hit and the outfielder scored the first Senators' run in the second when he beat out a bunt, stole second, took third on a balk and scored on a wild pitch. The decisive run came in the fifth when Fred Valentine singled and moved around on Bill Bryan's hit and a ground out. Rising Stock Star But Never a Winner DARLINGTON, S.C. (AP) Cale Yarborough, a rising star in stock car racing but never a winner at Darlington, has earned the right to try to rectify that. He was fastest among Thursday's seven qualifiers for Saturday's $64,950 Rebel 400 . mile race at the Darlington Speedway. He drove his Mercury at an average speed of 147.470 miles per hour for four laps of the milt- and three-eighths track. Fifteen cars have now been placed in the field of the 36 which will start. Eight more are to qualify in trials today, and the rest in a special 20- mile race late this afternoon.

Win Moves Phils Into 2nd Place By HAL BOCK Associated Press Sports Writer Johnny Callison has thrown away his weights and now his bat is weighing Into Philadel* phia's push towards the top of the National League. Callison drove In four runs with a double, triple and home run Thursday night, helping the Phillies beat Cincinnati 7*3, It was the third straight victory over the Reds for the Phillies and the second straight game In which Callison homered. The victory pulled the Phillies Into second place, one game ahead of Cincinnati, Los An« geles and San Francisco and three back of Idle St. Louis. The Dodgers dropped Chicago 6-0, Houston downed San Francisco 5-3 and Atlanta topped Pittsburgh 4-2 In the only other National League games scheduled Thursday. In the American League, Washington trimmed Boston 3-1, the Chicago White Sox tumbled Oakland 4-2 and Minnesota nudged California 4-3 in 10 Innings. Callison spent a week last winter with Gene Berde, the 63- year-old conditioning expert from Wakefield, Mass., who was credited with developing the body-building program that turned Carl Yastrzemski Into baseball's top slugger last year. "It wasn't a muscle-building thing," says Callison of the week he spent under Berde's tutelage. "As a matter of fact, he told me to throw away my weights. He told me all they did Is build tired muscles." So Callison climbed ropes, went through breathing exercises and rested his tired muscles. The result was a revitalized spring in which he felt leaner and stronger than at any time during his career. He looked strong enough to the Reds. In the first inning of Thursday night's game, he followed a walk to Tony Taylor and Cookie Rojas' single with 10 his three-base hit. Then, after the Reds had tied the score in their half of the first, Callison unloaded his third 2, home run of the season in the \ third inning with Taylor aboard. Rojas climaxed the Phillie attack with a three-run homer in the ninth that wrapped up Larry Jackson's third victory. Dick Farrell finished up for Jackson when the Reds nicked him for a run in the bottom of the ninth. Jim Wynn and Ron Davis both homered and Dave Giusti pitched a six-hitter as Hou ton defeated the Giants. Davis also drove in another Astro run with a fifth-inning single. Hal Lanier, a Giant infielder, was tagged with an indefinite suspension and fine by Manager Herman Franks when he reportedly threw his bat and helmet after being lifted for a pinch hitter. Rookie Ron Reed won his third straight game as Sonny Jackson drove in three runs with a pair of singles and the Braves whipped the Pirates. Jackson's bases-loaded single in the second got Atlanta off In front and then he singled home another run with two-out in the eighth inning, Jim Britton, another rookie, relieved Reed in the ninth and got the final out. Rocky Colavito smashed his third homer in two days for Los Angeles and Bill Singer's three- hitter shut out the Cubs. Z oilo Versalles and Bob Bailey also connected for the Dodgers.

(AP) University of Kansas athletes have gained some results from a one-day boycott of spring football practice and a threat to boycott all athletics in support of demands for a Negro cheerleader, a Negro coach and more Negro professors. A university spokesman said Thursday night a Negro will be chosen to fill a vacancy on the porn pom girls' squad; a course in Negro history will be offered next fall, and the university always is looking for qualified Negro faculty members. The demand for a Negro coach is a matter for future consideration. John Greene, Negro student and former football player, said he thought the protesting group generally was satisfied with the answers. All 15 Negro members of the football squad triggered the action by boycotting Thursday's practice session, the 19th of the 20 spring practices allowed by the Big Eight. 'file e x p r e s s i o n.

Controversy Over Golf Hole Change By BEN THOMAS Associated Press Sports Writer NEW ORLEANS (AP) - Controversy raged today over the redsigned 15th hole at the plush Lakewood Country Club golf course where the$100,OOOGreat- er New Orleans Open moved into its second day. "I don't think it's a fair hole " said Bob Stanton, the 22-yea'r- old Aussie who fashioned a six- under par 65 Thursday to take a one-stroke load after the first round. "I think it was a tetter hole to play as it was," said Tom Weiskopf, the handsome Ohio shot- maker who leads this year's money winners with nearly $aO,000. Welskofrf, Johnny Pott and South African Gary Player all had G6s. ' Jack Nicklaus, golf's Golden Bear, said of No. 15, now a par 4 hole playing at 470 yards; "it was a wonderful par 5, but -i lousy jjar 4." "I don't give a damn what they say," commented Jack Weiss, a tournament official, "I think It's a real fine hole now. Just because it's a par 5 for the members doesn't mean it has to be a par 5 for the pros." The tee was moved up CO yards on the hole, making it 470 yards and a par 4. The hole is a must hazardous- one to drive because a ball hit to the right or even slightly to the left could land in the lakes on either side of the narrow By BOB COOPER Associated Press Sports Writer LOUISVILLE, Ky. (AP) 1. Confusion, discretion, jingling phones and jangling nerves were everywhere today as the slowest decision in Kentucky Derby Idstory plodded toward its finish line. The end, most probably, will come Monday when the owner, trainer and handlers of Dancer's Image will appear before Churchill Downs stewards in a hearing to determine who drugged the horse, when they did it and why. Dancer's Image, winner of last Saturday's Derby, was disqualified after stewards at the track announced traces of phen- ylbutazone were found in a urine specimen taken from the colt after the race. Made timid by the first disqualification in the 94-year history of America's and the world's most famous horse race, sources hedged at every question. All said they didn't want to say anything that might influence the outcome of the hearing. Reporters— and in somt- cases, the general public—kept asking. Where they didn't find discretion, they found confusion. "I'm just plain upset about all this," said Mrs. Gene Oarkey, owner of Forward Pass, who finished second in the Derby and was declared the winner after the drug was found in the system of Dancer's Image. "It upset me in a way—I was elated—when they told me we had won the Derby," Mrs. Markey said. "Now they tell me maybe we haven't won. Frankly, I'm all mixed up." The general manager of the firm that found the phenylbuta- zone wouldn't say anything at all. "I hope you understand, but all these questions will be asked at the hearing and we'll answer them then," he said. The emotion centered around these points: — The original announcement by Churchill Downs Tuesday indicated that Dancer's Image had been disqualified and that Forward Pass had been declared, the winner of the Derby. „.,. r-A .'statement later by one of the stewards who decide such things said that nothing was official—yet. But asked if Dancer's Image still might be declared the Derby winner, Leo O-Donnell said, "No, I don't think so." : — A second statement from Churchill Downs left no doubt. It said the track where the Derby has been at home for 94 years would recognize Forward Pass, from the Calumet Farm, as its 1968winner. Smith Could Lower His World's Mark FRESNO, Calif.

Hockey Stanley Cup Playoffs By THE ASSOCIATED PRESS Thursday's Result Montreal 4, St. Louis 3, overtime, Montreal leads best-of-7 series, 3-0 fairway. Eight of the 10 eagles made in last year's tourney, when 15 was played at par 5, were made on the hole. "The official records show that there were more birdies than pars being made, necessitating a redesign of the hole," said Weiss. "Inasmuch as it was a very long tee, officials decided to Play from the very front of the tee at 470 yards, which is, according to the rules of golf, a par 4 hole.
