(AP) :Drivers of conventional racers were about ready today to con- 'cede the 52nd 500-mile Memorial .Day race to one of the Lotus ^turbines that dashed to Indian- Spoils Motor Speedway qualifying records over the weekend. ( : But they could be premature, "said S.A. Silbermann, metallurgist and long-time U.S. Auto Club official who heads the 500 technical committee. He noted that the weather was damp and chilly Saturday when Graham Hill of London set the 10-mile qualifying record at 171.208 m.p.h. and Lotus teammate Joe Leonard of San Jose, Calif., raised it to 171.559. Silbermann said the picture could change if Memorial Day is hot. "The turbines' horsepower and torque will drop off about 20 per cent if the temperature is 85 'degrees," he said. "They hit their peak at 59 degrees," Bobby Unser of Albuquerque, N.M., winner of the last three USAC championship races and defending Indianapolis champion A.J. Foyt Jr., Houston, were among a host of drivers and car owners who said the piston cars will have to run a separate race behind the turbines, They said the "heat engines" will ruin auto racing. Siibermann commented, "did you see that crowd Saturday? Turbines won't kill racing. The crowd will always turn out to see something new and controversial." : The Saturday turnout was es« timated up to?65,000. Unser had the third-best quaj. iifying speed of 109,507 m.p.h. in an EagJe*Cffen)jouser and wilj Share the front row with Leon* i*rd and Hill. Fifteen cars that qualified Saturday averaged 167.22?

Morgan, 148, Los Angeles, Casper Is Winner at Fort Worth By DENNE H. FREEMAN Associated Press Sports Writer FORT WORTH, Tex. (AP) Methodical Billy Casper became the first player In golf history to win over $100,000 this early in the year Sunday with a runaway five-stroke victory in the Colonial National Invitation Tournament. Casper's $25,000 first prize put him at the $103,868.64 bracket. He says the Mormon Church gets 10 per cent and the government the rest. Casper shot a closing round two-under-par 68 over the tough 7,000-yard par 70 Colonial Country Club course to finish with a 275 and become a two-time winner in the tournament. The victory also put Casper alone as the only three-time winner on the 1968 tour. He previously scored victories at Greensboro and Los Angeles. The earliest previous date for any golfer to win over $100,000 was in June, 1967 when Arnold Palmer won $15,000 with a second-place finish in the U.S. Open to geta$113,225.63 total. Casper was never really pressed although he started the day tied with South African Gary player, who said he shot his "worst round in five years" in soaring to a 76 for a283 total. Gene Littler fired a closing round 68 to finish second with an even par 280 worth $15,000. Tommy Aaron carved out an even par 70 for $9.375. Casper's only hint of trouble came at the par 3 No. 8 where a five-iron landed in the middle of the green and rolled over. Casper chipped back and three- putted for a double bogey. "I wasn't too worried even then," said Casper. "I had a large lead." Casper was so unworried that on the next hole he fished for golf balls in a creek while Littler putted. Then he calmly walked up and knocked his ball in for a bird. Casper said he would take a two-week rest from the tour. His next appearances will be at Indianapolis, Ind., in the 500 Festival, and the Canadian and British Opens. Stanky Admits Club Has a Way to Go By JOE MOOSHIL Associated Press Eports Writer CHICAGO (AP) - Four straight, eight out of 10 and 12 out of the last 16. The Chicago White Sox are coming? Don't bet. "We're still not hitting or pitching the way we should," said Eddie Stanky Sunday after his Sox had polished off the Oakland A's 6-2 and 7-3 to sweep the four-game set. "Don't get me wrong," said Stanky, whose club lost its first 10 games of the season, "I'm not knocking winning games, but we have a long way to go. "Somebody's going to pick up a paper in Texas or in Oklahoma and see we won four straight. 'Here come the Sox,' they'll say, Well, I hope they're right. "But somewhere else, soma- body is going to say 'the Sox haven't beaten any of the top teams' and they will be right," continued Stanky. "Yet, we lost the pennant last year because we couldn't beat the A's and Washington consistently. We held our own against the top teams and I think we can do it again this year. "We will have to get the hitting from Pete Ward and Tommy Davis," said Stanky "and our pitching isn't up to snuff yet. "When we lost those first 10 games a lot of people wanted to count us out of the race," said Stanky. "Now that we're winning, the same people are asking questions about winning the peonajftt, "I've said all along that tliis is a long season and the re're a lot Chisox in Twin Win Over A's By HAL BOCK Associated Press Sports Writer Here comes Eddie Stanky now, charging up through the American League standings with managerial plotting that borders on the mystical, Stanky's Chicago White Sox swept a Sunday doubleheader from Kansas City 6*2, 1-3 and did it on a three*run homer by a pitcher and with three pinch runners all scoring runs In the same inning, Brilliant. The Sox, who started the season in reverse with 10 straight losses, now have won 12 of their last 16 games and soared into sixth place in the American League. In other American League games Sunday, Detroit swept a doubleheader from Washington 5-4 and 7-0 and ended Frank Howard's consecutive game homer string at six, Cleveland took a pair from Baltimore 11-6 and 2-0, California split with Minnesota, winning 2-1 and then losing 3-2, and New York walloped Boston 11-3. In the Natloal League, Atlanta swept a pair from New York 3-2 and 2-0, San Francisco split with Chicago, winning 1-0 and then losing 6-3, Cincinnati battered Pittsburgh 9-3, Philadelphia edged St. Louis 4-3 and Houston swept Los Angeles 2-1 and 3-1. Stanky, who moved fast and furiously with second game substitutions, let pitcher Tommy John swing for himself with Oakland leading 2-1 in the fourth inning of the opener and two runners aboard, John, whose 4-0 record shows no scars of the season-opening nightmare, rewarded the faith with a three-run homer and shut out the A's the rest of the way. In the nightcap, Chicago was nursing a 1-0 lead in the fifth when Stanky went to work in earnest. Luis Aparicio was hit by a pitch and Ken Berry sacrificed. Pete Ward walked and Stanky inserted Buddy Bradford to run. Tommy Davis singled for one run and Bill Voss went in to run for him. An error loaded the bases and Stanky sent up Wayne Causey as a pinch hitter. A two-run single, naturally, and Sandy Alomar in to run for Causey. Tim Cullen bunted and another run scored as the A's missed a runner at the plate. Gerry McNertney singled another run across before the Sox were through. Three pinch runners, all of whom scored, and a successful pinch hitter, all in one inning? "Routine," shrugged Stanky, walking off. The Tigers halted Howard's string which had reached 10 homers in six games, and beat the Senators twice with some long ball punch of their own. Dick McAuliffe homered in each game while Al Kaline and Ed Mathews both connected In the nightcap. Kaline's pinch shot was the 307th of his career and gave him the Detroit club leadership by one over Hank Greenberg. Mathews hit No. 510, leaving him one short of Mel Ott and sixth place on the alltime list. Gates Brown's pinch single drove home Detroit's winning run in the eighth inning of the opener after a double by Howard had ignited a four-run tying rally by the Senators in the top half. Sonny Siebert pitched a one- hitter for his third shutout and the llth this season for the Cleveland staff as the Indians completed a sweep of the Orioles, Tommy Harper's bases- empty homer and an eighth inning double by Tony Horton drove in Cleveland's runs. The Indians pummelled four Baltimore pitchers for 15 hits including a three-run homer by Duke Sims as Steve Hargan coasted to the first game victory. Ron Perranoski, who surrendered California's winning hit in the opener, choked off an Angel rally that preserved Minnesota's second game victory. The Angels had scored twice in the eighth inning when Perra- noski struck out Bubba Morton and got Jim Fregosi on a fly ball, ending the rally. Sammy Ellis got last-out help from Minnie Rojas to win the opener on a five-hitter. Andy Kosco drove in five runs with three hits including a homer and Tom Tresh atoned for a three-error game the night before by driving in four runs as the Yankees battered Boston. HOP!

Minor League Baseball By THE ASSOCIATED PRESS Saturday's Result Pacific Coast League- Vancouver 10-0, Seattle 2-1 Oklahoma City 7, Denver 3 Indianapolis, 9, Tulsa 3 Tacoina 11, Portland 8 Forward Pass Going to Belmont By ED SCHUYLER JR. Associated Press Sports Writer BALTIMORE (AP)- There are two triples in the making in thoroughbred racing, Calumet Farm wants one; Peter Fuller wants no part of the other, A triple for Calumet would be realized if Forward Pass wins the June 1 Belmont Stakes to go with his tainted victory in the Kentucky Derby and his con* vincing triumph in last Saturday's Preakness at Pimlico. Fuller's unwanted and very improbable triple could also occur in the Belmont— a disquallfl* cation of his Dancer's Image, In the case of D.mcer's Image, the odds have already been defied beyond belief, The gray Native Dancer colt finished first in the Derby ahead of Forward Pass but was disqualified when a urinalysis revealed an illegal medication in his system, Then in the Preakness, he was disqualified from first to third for bothering Martin's Jig and Nodouble in the stretch. They were the first disqualifications in the 94-year History of the Derby and the 93 years of the Preakness. But by the time the interference took place, Forward Pass had the race well in hand. Jockey Ismael Valenzuela kept the son of On and On In good position from the start and when he asked him to move turning for homo, Forward Pass sizzled through the stretch to beat Robert J. Kleberg's Out of the Way. Another head back was Dancer's Image, whose jockey Bobby Ussery was held blameless by the stewards who ruled the interference was beyond the veteran rider's control. Forward Pass covered the 1 3-16 miles in 1:56 4-5, running the final three-sixteenths in 19 1-5. He earned $142,700 from the gross purse of $195,200, the richest ever for a Triple Crown race. Gene Goff's Nodouble, whose rider stood up in the irons at the sixteenth pole, was moved to third after Dancer's Image was set down, and James Skinner's Yankee Lad was given fourth money. Apprentice Willie McKeever, aboard Nodouble, was fined $100 for misjudging the finish line, but Goff and trainer Gene Sonnier agreed the misjudgement did not affect the order of finish. Another thing that did not affect the order of finish was the urinalysis given each of the first three finishers. Pimlico officially announced Sunday the urinalyses were negative. Although Nodouble was moved to third, he did not have to undergo a post-race test. There was some big money being offered for older horses Saturday, and Dr. Fager got a big chunk of it when he easily won the $119,600 California over 1 1-16 miles at Golden Gate Fields. Amerigo Lady won the $58,200 Top Flight Handicap on closing day at Aqueduct and I'm Smiley scored in the $34,400 Illinois Handicap at Arlington Park.

Nen drilled a two-run homer in the fourth inning of Sunday's doubleheader nightcap at San Francisco, then bowed out in the sixth for pinch hitter Banks, whose three-run homer powered the Cubs to a 6-3 victory. The Giants had taken the first game 1-0 on the six-hit pitching of Gaylord Perry and a second inning homer by Jim Hart. Manager Leo Durocher made the sixth Inning switch from the left-hand hitting Nen to Banks, a right-hand swinger, after Giants pilot Franks replaced starting pitcher Bob Bolin with southpaw Joe Gibbon. Bolin, the victim of Nen's first homer as a Cub, had gotten two outs in the inning before walking Ron Santo and Al Spangler. Durocher said, "When Herman put in the left'nded pitcher (Gibbon), he forced me to take out Nen and bring in a right-tended hitter. I don't know what Herman had In mind, but I certainly wasn't going to use a lefty against a lefty. Nen was hitting .077 in 12 games. The second game setback loft the Giants tied with red hot Atlanta for second place In the National League—just one game behind the slumping St. l/ouis Cardinals. The Braves swept a doubleheader from the New York Mots 3-2 and 2-0 for a run of eight victories in their last 10 games. The Cardinals bowed to Philadelphia 4-3, extending the losing string to four. Cincinnati slugged Pittsburgh 9-3 and Houston beat Los Angeles twice, 2-1 and 3-1. Detroit, Cleveland and Chicago swept American League twin bills, the Tigers taking Washington 5*1 and 7-0, the Indians trimming Baltimore 11-6 and 2-0, and the White Sox flogging Cuk- land 6-2 and 7-3, California downed Minnesota 2-1 before losing the nightcap 3-2 and the New York Yankees mauled Boston 11-3. After Banks' sixth hum or of the season gave Chicago a 5-0 lead, Phil Regan came out of the Cubs' bullpen to choke off a Giant rally in the bottom of the sixth and preserve Bill Hands' fourth victory. Mike Marshall chased Hands with a two-run single, but Regan got Hart to bounce into an inning-ending double play. In tin- opener, Perry posted his fifth victory and first .shutout of the year in a duel with Ferguson Jenkins, who surrendered Hart's seventh homer and dropped to 4-4 for the season. Ron Reed, Atlanta's unbeaten rookie, pitched a two-hitter in the opener at Now York and gained his fifth victory wliei: run-scoring singles by Felipe Alou and Felix Millan erased a 2-1 deficit in the eighth inning. Alou also smacked a fifth inning homer off losing pitcher Nolan Ryan after J.C. Martin's bases-loaded single had delivered two Met runs in the third. Dick Kelley stopped the iMets on eight hits in the nightcap and the Braves scored twice against Al Jackson in the eighth on Clete Boyer's double, Tommie Aaron's triple and a single by Woody Woodward. The Phillies blew a 2-1 lead in the ninth, then edged St. Louis for the third straight day on two walks and pinch hitter Gary Sutherland's two-out, two-run double in the bottom of the ninth. Curt Flood, who knocked in St. Louis' first run with a third inning single, tripled horn? one run and scored on Tim McCarver's two-out single in the top of the ninth, giving the Cards a 3-2 edge.
