Star H !S f* si Is roomed for Preakness ',X,.'LbtttSVlLLfe, Ky. (AP)-~ .^Daneer's Image's owner Petef Fuller and trainer Lou Cavalar* "is hive left Louisville. But the hearing In the disqualification of the gray colt as Kentucky Der* >.by winner continues at Churchill Downs today, "We'll be back Wednesday morning," Fuller said as hepre- pared to board a plane for Baltl* more after testifying In the first day of the stewards' hearing Monday, The owner and trainer said they were asked by the stewards to attend a session Wednesday, perhaps to offer more testimony. Today, however, the two were to supervise a workout for Dancer's Image, now In training for the Preakness this Saturday. At the first day of the hearing, which lasted Iiy 2 hours, eight or more witnesses offered testimony or evidence. However, no one divulged what transpired at the closed session, which was cloaked by tight security. The hearing is intended to determine who is to blame for the appearance of phenylbutazone in the colt's system after the running of the Derby May 4. Cavalaris' reputation is at stake, plus he could be suspended from handling Fuller's string. In addition, Fuller says ,he won't run Dancer's Image in the Preakness if Cavalaris can't saddle him. Fuller already has lost the $122,600 Derby purse because of the drug Incident. The money i presumably will be awarded to 'Calumet Farm's Forward Pass. However, any distribution of the purse awaits an order from the stewards, which will be issued only after completion of the hearing. Besides Fuller, trainer Cavalaris and two members of Fuller's stable staff gave testimony. Also before the stewards Monday w.etpe -DnrAlex Harthillj in whose barn Dancer's "Image" was quartered before the Derby; Doug Davis, who had his racing string in the next barn, and two representatives of the drug testing firm that found phenylbutazone in the colt's urine.

Soccer League Meets Most Goals SAN FRANCISCO (AP) The North American Soccer League produces more goals per game than any major soccer league in the World. Some say it's because of a unique scoring system and others say the reason is offensive iriinded coaches. In the first 50 contests this season, the 17 NASL teams scored a total of 179 goals, or 3.58 per game, England averaged 3.21 goals a game last year, Italy 2.11; Russia 2.14; West Germany 2.98; and France, 2.64. The league scorings y s t e m has teams getting six points for a victory, three for a tie, and one for each goal scored up to three in a game. Coaches also are stressing offense rather than defense in attempts to gain as many points for standings as possible, and to lure more paying customers. frailer Is Impressive Out of Ring PHILADELPHIA (AP) - Joe Frazier, heavyweight boxing champion of five states, is making a big impression these days. But this time it's on records, not in the ring. The Philadelphia fighter has turned recording star, waxing two tunes titled, "The Bigger They Come, the Harder They -Fall," and, "Come and get Me "Love." ltf Frazier, recognized champion in Illinois, Maine, Massachusetts, New York and Pennsylvania, thus joins the lengthening list of athletes in recording competition. Among the athletes-turned- singers are Roosevelt Grier, the giant Los Angeles Rams' football tackle; halfback Timmy Brown of the football Baltimore Colts and E r n i e Terrell, the heavyweight contender from Atlantic City, N.J. choice from the Cleveland Browns today. The Browns obtained quarterback Bill Nelsen and defensive back Jim Bradshaw. SCENE Cards Widen Lead to Four Games By DICK COUCH Associated Press Sports Writer If the Pittsburgh Pirates ever get Jim Buftning a few runs they'll be dangerous. If the St. Louis Cardinals get anybody a few more runs they'll be unstoppable. The Cardinals widened their National League lead to four games Monday night by nipping luckless Bunning and the surprisingly punchless Pirates 1*0 behind the four-hit pitching of Nelson Brlles. St. Louis has scored just 12 runs in its last six starts ... and won four of them. The Pirates have totaled 11 runs in splitting their last six games. Bunning is 3-3 on the season .. . With a pair of 1-0 setbacks in the last two weeks. The 36-year<old right-hander, acquired by Pittsburgh In a winter trade, lost five 1-0 decisions with Philadelphia last year. In other National League night games—the only.other action in the majors—the Chicago Cubs whipped Los Angeles 5-1 and Atlanta shaded Philadelphia 4-2. Curt Flood's double and Roger Marls' run-scoring single in the first inning gave Briles all the support he needed in winging to his fifth victory against two losses. Briles, tagged for a single by Bill Mazeroski and a double by Willie StargeU in the first inning, pitched out of the jam and then shackled the Pirates, whose team batting average dipped to .226. After giving up the first inning run, Bunning allowed only one more St. Louis runner to reach second base until the eighth, when he left for a pinch hitter. Ernie Banks cracked a two- run homer for the Cubs, who spotted Los Angeles a 1-0 first inning lead before moving ahead to stay in the fourth on singles by Don Kessinger, Glenn Beckert and Billy Williams plus a sacrifice fly by Ron Santo. Santo singled home another run in the sixth before Banks unloaded his fifth 1968 homer ... and the 447th of his career. Southpaw Ken Hoitz man was the winner with eighth Inning relief help from former Dodger Phil Regan. Ken Boyer, making his Dodger debut, drove in the only run off Holtzman with the first of his two singles. Knuckleballer Phil Niekro stopped Philadelphia on three hits and keyed the Braves' deciding two-run rally in the ninth with a bunt single. Reliever Dick Farrell walked pinch hitter Tito Francona with the bases jammed, forcing in the tie- breaking run, and Hank Aaron provided insurance with a sacrifice fly. Aaron's brother Tommy got the Braves off to an early lead with a two-run homer but the Phils tied it in the fourth on a two-run single by Johnny Briggs. Son Antonio Is Winner Over Travs SAN ANTONIO, Tex. (AP>San Antonio pushed across four runs in the seventh inning Monday night and defeated Arkansas 7-3 in a Texas League baseball game. The Missions got to Traveler relief pitcher Joe Hamende for four consecutive singles to break a 3-3 tie. Hemende threw only four pitches and Mike Klahr, Archie Reynolds, Tom Simon and Tom Krawczyk singled on each of them. Both teams scored solo runs in the third while Arkansas added two in the fifth on back-to- back doubles by Joe DiFabio and Quique Rivera and a single by Mike Christino. The Missions added two runs in the sixth. In other Texas League action, Albuquerque beat Dallas-Fort Worth 5-4, El Paso stopped Shreveport 5-1 and Memphis beat Amarillo 11-7, Arkansas 001 020 000- 3 10 3 S.

Monday's Stars By THE ASSOCIATED PRESS PITCHING - Nelson Brtles, Cardinals, stopped Pittsburgh on four hits in hurling St. Louis Printed by Offset igRace Tussifiy, May 14,1911 Eluding Car Owner By PAUL tfif ROT TA Associated Press Sports Writer INDIANAPOLIS, Ind, (AP) Car owner Andy Granatelli has suffered still another setback In his 22*year-old quest for victory in the Indianapolis 500*mlle race, One of the four Grand Prix drivers GranatelH hired to drive his stable of six turbine-powered cars was sidelined Monday for at least three weeks with a hairline fracture on the right wrist. Jackie Stewart suffered the Injury when the steering wheel lashed back during practice for a Formula Two race In Spain. Two of the drivers— Jim Clark of Scotland and Mike Spence of England— were killed in racing accidents. Clark died April 7 at Hockenheim, Germany, and Spence was injured fatally a month later at the Indianapolis Motor Speedway, practicing for the 500. American driver Parnelll Jones, also signed to drive for Granatelli, withdrew, saying the turbocar which nearly won the Memorial Day Indianapolis race last year no longer was competitive with piston-engine cars because of revisions ordered by the U.S. Auto Club. . The turbocar was retired permanently Sunday when it spun and slapped the wall here. Granatelli said the car was not worth repairing because a USAC rule change effective next year will not permit engines to extend beyond the Inside edge of the wheel. Granatelli's turbine stable has been reduced to three cars and one Grand Prix driver—Graham Hill, who won the 1966 Indianapolis race. Dave Blackmer, six-year member of the Granatelli team, says Granatelli "goes to the end of the road and overcomes obstacles where others would give .UP." The Lighter Side of World Sports By BEN OLAN Associated Press Sports Writer NEW YORK (AP) - laughing at Sports: That drug Butazolidln has been used for gout and other human ailments. But maybe it shouldn't be given to cure a colt. They had a hockey game, four baseball games and a soccer game on television the past weekend. Didn't know whether to go out and buy a new car, drink beer, smoke a cigarette, ... or just pause for a moment. Someone predicted that big league soccer in this country would last another two seasons. Yeah . . . this spring and this summer.

Slitter Rnwl Press Coordinator SflOff M0f! U|M71 BWfrf for Olympics ier Bowl Battle Is Making in By RAY BfciJL Associated Press Writer ATLANTA (AP)-The battle for pro football's prize plum— the 1969 Super Bowl site—opens today at the joint meeting of the gamerican and National Football League owners amid indications that Miami and New Orleans hold the inside track. At a news conference Monday, Pete Rozelle, commissioner of the football leagues, said the choice has pretty well narrowed to the two cities. "New Orleans and Miami are the most likely candidates," Rozelle said, although insisting that neither has a particular advantage in the selection. He also mentioned that other sites still might be considered. Mayor Victor H. Schiro of New Orleans and Mayor Steve Clark of Miami, where the 1968 Super Bowl was held, make presentations for their cities today. Rozelle said the final decision will be reached by Wednesday. Other controversial problems scheduled for consideration by owners today and Wednesday include a proposal to eliminate the one-point conversion kick after touchdowns and demands by the NFL Players Association. The kick, if elinated, would be replaced by a running or passing one-point score. Demands by the NF L Players Association include the setting aside of $5 million annually for the player retirement fund and a minimum salary of $15,000 a year for players.

Thinks Hall Is the Most Valuable By LOWELL MCKIRGAN Associated Press Sports Writer ST. LOUIS (AP) - Glenn Hall is a most valuable hockey player who thinks longingly of "a little patch of ground near Edmonton." in Alberta Province, Canada. "When you're a farmer you can miss a strip with the plow and nobody will get too excit- books ed," Hall said Monday night aft- dence*. er learning he had been ad- «j k now r can make the Olyn)i judged the winner of the Conn pi cs » ne s3L ^ t Smythe Trophy.

A shade under 5-foot-10, the 22-year-old Hanks wants fo jump higher than anyone else. 1 ' Hanks often has cleared the 7-foot mark, and earlier this month cleared 7-4 ! /4 in practice. That is some 18 inches over his head — a feat few, if any, jumpers have matched. "That was my best jump," said the blond Brigham Young University senior. "But it carte on a Monday. When our next meet rolled around I just couldn't do it.":'.' -...,::;v, rt The practice jump, although It did not count in any recortl has given Hanks confi- net, people get excited," said the 36-year-old goalie. The fans got excited, but most of the time it was because of spectacular stops made by net-minder. The Blues, an expansion team, finished third in the NHL's West Division during the regular season, slipped by first- place Philadelphia and then Minnesota in the Stanley Cup preliminaries. Each series went the full seven games and Hall played all but a few minutes of the 18 games. Eight of the games went into overtime. In the finals, the Montreal Canadiens won in four straight, but were pressed hard In each game, edging the Blues by just one goal in each of the four victories. Durring the playoffs Hall was in the nets for the Blues a total of 1,092 minutes and ended with a 2.47 goals-against average. His performance earned him the trophy nod by the league's board of governors and an award of $1,500, In his 13-year NHL career, Hall has twice won the Vezina Trophy, given to the goalie with the top defensive average. Last year he shared the honor with Denis DeJorday when both played for Chicago, largely mental. "You've got to believe you can make it," he said. ''That's'a big part of it.
