".,'„ Javier obliged in the fourth in- :,,ning, slamming his first homer j: 'pf the season to back Steve ' Carlton's four-hit pitching and give the Cardinals their second successive 1-0 victory over the Pirates. •"••• "I wasn't thinking about it," Javier said afterward, "But —when I was running around the bases, I thought, 'Look what I didl'" The Chicago Cubs caught Los Angeles from behind 5-3, Cincinnati trimmed the New York Mets 3-0 and San Francisco topped Houston 7-3 in other a- tional League action. The Atlanta-Philadelphia game was rained out. In the American League, Baltimore slugged Detroit 10-8, California beat the Chicago White Sox 4-2 at Milwaukee, Boston downed Washington 6-4 and the New York Yankees played Cleveland to a 2-2, rain-curtailed standoff. The Oakland- Minnesota game was washed out by rain. Javier, the Cardinals' slick- fielding second baseman, hit Steve Blass' first pitch in the fourth inning into the light tower next to the left field scoreboard at Forbes Field. Carlton held Pittsburgh hitless until the fifth and nursed the one-run edge all the way for his fourth victory against one loss. The tall southpaw struck out six and allowed only one runner to reach second base. Dick Nen, a former Dodger, beat his old teammates with a two-run pinch hit single in the ninth, capping a three-run Chicago rally. Nen delivered the winning hit after Randy Hundley's run-scoring single tied the game. Losing pitcher Jim Grant checked the Cubs on five hits until the ninth and slugged his first National League homer, a two-run shot in the third, Ernie Banks tied it with a two-run double in the fourth, but committed a seventh Inning throwing error before Wes Parker's sacrifice fly sent the Dodgers in front 3-2. George Culver blanked the Mets on seven hits and the Reds, who had dropped six of their previous seven starts, pounded loser Jerry Koosman and two relievers for 13. The first of Tommy Helms' three singles drove in the only run Culver needed in the Reds' two-run second inning. Vada Pinson scored the second run on a single by Leo Cardenas and doubled another run home in the eighth. Willie Mays' 571st career homer— a two-run blast in the first inning-triggered San Francisco's victory' over the Astros, With Ollie Brown's two-run single keying a four-run burst In the sixth, the Giants built the lead to 7-0 before Doug Rader hit a three-run homer for Houston in the seventh.

Associated Press Sports Writer BALTIMORE (AP) — Peter Fuller entered Dancer's Image, who was disqualified as winner of the Kentucky Derby, in the $150,000«added Preakness today. Fuller entered the gray son of Native Dancer at 9:44 a.m., EOT, 16 minutes before the deadline for entries in Saturday's running of the second jewel of racing's Triple Crown. The entry of Dancer's Image came after Fuller had consulted in Stewards of Churchill Downs in Louisville suspended Cavalaris Wednesday night in a decision which affirmed the disqualification and gave the Derby's winning purse of $122,600 to the second place horse, Forward Pass. Before the hearing began earlier this week, Fuller had said Dancer's Image would not run in the second jewel of the Triple Crown at Pimlico if Cavalaris was suspended. But Cavalaris has urged all the while that the colt run, no matter what his status as a trainer. The three stewards indicated further investigation was merited and referred the matter to the Kentucky Racing Commission. Fuller said he would appeal the decision to the commission in hope that Cavalaris would be able to train Dancer's Image during the course of his suspension. After meeting nearly 48 hours behind locked doors, the stewards announced that Cavalaris and Barnard were forbidden to enter any race track through June 13. They also officially announced that Dancer's Image, who finished first in the Derby by l l / 2 lengths over Calumet Farm's Forward Pass, was disqualified and placed last. This made Forward Pass the Derby winner, gave the first money of $122,600 to Calumet Farm, and gave the colt a shot at becoming the first Triple Crown winner since Citation added a Belmont Stakes triumph to Derby and Preakness victories. The investigation started when a post-Derby test disclosed a trace of phenylbutzone, or a derivative of the analgesic, in the routine urine sample taken after the Derby. Travelers 5-0 Win Over Missions Young Sanitago Guzman shut out San Antonio on six hits Wednesday night as the Arkansas Travelers took a 5-0 Texas League victory over the Missions at San Antonio, Arkansas moved into second place as the 18-year-old Guzman recorded his third victory. He has lost twice. Memphis pitcher Steve Renko survived a three-run rally in the third inning and the Blues went on to collect a 6-3 triumph over Amarillo at Amarillo. In other Texas League games, visiting Albuquerque tripped Dallas - Fort Worth 8-1 and Shreveport lost to El Paso 4-2 at Shreveport. Hydrosphere is the envelope of a planet.

Milwaukee Turns Out for Chisox By MIKE RECHf Associated Press sports Writer The Chicago White So* brought major league baseball back to Milwaukee and got a wet reception from the weatherman, an impartial one from the fans and a beating from the California Angels, Only the size of the Crowd—23,5lO»made the trip worthwhile, After all, It was the size of the crowds in Chicago—the largest has been 11,546 this season- that prompted the Sox to sched* ule nine regular season games in Milwaukee, the first there since the Braves moved in 1965, The White Sox themselves, however, failed to impress. Most of the fans sat through the rain that began in the early innings and the 29-mtnute delay in the eighth to see Paul Schaul single home two runs in that inning and give the Angels a 4-2 victory over Chicago. The weather played a part in reducing the rest of the Ame'ri- can League schedule as only two other games were completed— Baltimore outslugged Detroit 10-8 and Boston held off Washington 6-4. The Oakland game at Minnesota was rained out as was the New York game at Cleveland where the Yankees and Indians In the National League, Atlanta was rained out at Philadelphia, but St. Louis stopped Pittsburgh 1-0, San Francisco downed Houston 7-3, Cincinnati blanked the New York Mets 3-0 and the Chicago Cubs overcame Los Angeles 5-3. The crowd at Milwaukee quiet compared to the howling followers of the Braves, watched curiously as the Sox and Angels battled through seven innings tied 1-1. Only Rick Reichardt, a college star at the Univegsity of Wisconsin, got a big hand from the fans, 45 of them his relatives and friends. The players couldn't tell either from the crowd reaction who was the home team, and the Angels aroused some enthusiasm when they loaded the bases with none out against Bob Locker on Bob Rodgers' single, a double by Bobby Knoop and an intentional walk. Then came the delay, then came reliever Wilbur Wood then came Schaul and there went Chicago's hopes for a victory. Chuck Hinton of California and Tom McCraw of the Sox traded homers in the ninth inning for the final score. The backers of the game were delighted at the turnout, considering the tornado warnings in the area until 6 p.m., the rain and local television of the game. The crowd in Detroit had plenty to keep it excited until the last out despite three-run homers by Boog Powell and pinch hitter Curt Motton of the Orioles and solo shots by teammates Elrod Hendricks and Dave Johnson. A two-run homer by Mickey Stanley, a solo blast by Norm Cash, two triples by Dick McAuliffe and one by Al Kaline kept the Tigers in the game until Motton unloaded In the eighth for a 10-6 lead. Detroit, loaded the bases in the ninth with none out, but got only two runs in a vain attempt to save Denny Me Lain his first loss after five complete game victories. Baltimore instead ended its seven-game losing streak. Jose Santiago gave up a two- run homer to Frank Howard, his 12th, and a solo clout by Ken Me Mullen in the first inning, but settled down and stopped Washington until the ninth while his Boston teammates overtook the Senators. ' When Frank Coggins' double and a single by Bernie Allen scored a Washington run in the ninth, Sparky lyle came on to get the last out and raise Santiago's record to 5-i, The Yankees tied their game when Joe Pepitone doubled and Dick Howser hit a pinch single in the seventh Inningbefore raiin washed out their game with Cleveland. The records count, but the entire game will be replayed. mn (AWO TODAY'S BASEBALL By fHE ASSOCIATED PRESS American League Detroit Cleveland Baltimore Minnesota Oakland Boston California Washington New York Chicago Washington New York Chicago w. 19' 17 17 16 15 15 15 13 13 11 13 13 11 L. 11 12 13 15 15 15 18 17 18 17 17 18 17 Pet, ,633 ,586 ,567 ,516 ,500 ,500 ,455 .433 ,419 .393 ,433 ,419 ,393 G.B.

He also refused to name any of the athletes, "1 will not initiate any name calling," he said today, "I don't want to appear to the public to be exposing them to criticism," He said in a statement: "It will be a tragedy that competition will be denied to some outstanding young men because of their actions. "These men, by not reporting for practice, are, in effect, removing themselves from the California football team." Willsey said he has no idea when or if the Negroes will return. Football practice ends Saturday. Pressed for a count, Willsey said 14 were out for spring drills and every one played in last Saurday's alumni game, He said five or six were lettermen.

"Maybe in two months, maybe more — it's in the hands of the Supreme Court. But before I go, I'd like to see this heavyweight problem settled once and for all. "I would be willing to fight Joe Frazier and Jimmy Ellis with 15 minutes rest between bouts, but I know the commissions wouldn't allow that. "So we could stage one fight on Saturday night and the other one on Monday night — or. maybe a week apart, "We should hold it In the biggest outdoor stadium in the world. It would bring in millions of dollars, Half of the proceeds could go to a poverty fund. The other half could be distributed equally among the fighters," Clay returned home Wednes. day from an Eastern speaking tour. He has addressed several campus college group^and says he has bookings for more than 30 others, "I am more famous as a speaker than I ever was as a boxer," Muhammad said, A convert to the Muslim faith and a professed minister, the sleek Louisville Negro was given a maximum five-year sentence and fined $5,000 for refusing to enter the armed forces.

Baseball Is Losing Out in Attendance By BE NOLAN Associated Press Sports Writer NEW YORK (AP) - Big league baseball, already committed to expanding to 24 teams in 1969, is taking another step backward at the gate this season, an Associated Press survey disclosed today. Attendance so far in 1968 is 3,7 per cent under 1967 and almost 10 per cent behind the pace of the majors' peak year hj 1966 when they totaled 25 million paid admissions for the first time in history. This year's aggregate is ATLANTA, Ga. (AP) football commissioner Pete Rozelle says he still believes team owners and players consider the game a sport and are willing to make sacrifices for it. "I believe every owner in the game would rather lose a million dollars and win the Super Bowl than to make a million and finish third or fourth in his division," Rozelle said on the eve of today's finish of the club owners' meeting. The joint meeting of owners of teams In the American and National 'Football Leagues stretched into today because of lengthy discussions by NFL executives over player demands for more money. The owners have been talking about a reported letter which they have said shows the FL Players Association is seeking authority to call a strike if their .demands arenot met.

Clarence Bell changed his mind about his plans to confer with Atty, Gen. Joe Purcell about a Legislative Council investigation into Southland's ownership, Bell was one of several East Arkansas legislators who asked the council last week to launch the investigation. He said he understood that out-of-state interests would fake over the track in 10 days if something wasn't done. Bell said he understood the High Park Corp., which he described as a New York syndicate, had bought controlling interest in Southland. Jeremy M. Jacobs of Williamsville, N.Y,, a High Park official, issued a statement Tuesday saying that High Park is a. family corporation with numerous subsidiary interests. He said High Park owned 45 per cent of Southland's stock and was interested only in protecting its financial interest. The suit said that it has been indicated that Jacobs and John. Masoni of Cleveland, both Southland directors, intend to try to elect directors of their choice at the meeting Friday. Southland's management has distributed to stockholders an information sheet proposing reelection of Jacobs, Masoni, Charles Upton, 0. L Bellinger to the board. i Gov.

The National League, whose attendance declined more than two million last season, is off by 122,404. The American League deficit is only 17,588. The AL had an all-time high of 11,336,923 last year when it had one of its closest pennant races ever. Eleven clubs reported 1968 decreases, a number of them citing reasons that Included inclement weather, racial unrest, losing streaks and fewer doubleheaders than last year. The Atlanta Braves show the largest decrease, 111,307. The Braves, who shifted from Milwaukee to Atlanta in 1966, have pulled 156,699 customers through the turnstiles in '68.

"Neither side wants a strike. Fm extremely hopeful that this will be resolved without such action." The players are seeking a $5 million hike in their pension fund, $500 each for playing in a preseason game and a minimum annual salary of $15,000. Although the NFL owners did not come to a public agreement on how they would counter player demands, a joint session of the NFL-AFL produced two de- V3lopments.
