m Ellis Burton of Cubs Enters Elite Circle Jf By MILTON RTCIIMAN ^ UP! Sports Writer Oft-traded Ellis Burton of the Cubs, a tough man to keep tabs ';on because he never stays in one '"place too long, landed in the record book for keeps today—along• side Mickey Mantle. That's a pretty tall order for a guy with an undistinguished .224 lifetime batting average, but Burton managed it Thursday night when he became the eighth player in major league history to hit home runs from both sides of the plate in one game. The shopworn, switch-hitting Burton, whose only other claim to , fame is that he plays a hot trumpet off the field, accomplished Thursday night's feat while helping the Cubs beat the Braves. 10-2. Batting right-handed, the 27- year-old Chicago outfielder set off a six^run rally with his fifth homer of the year off loser Denny Lemaster in the first inning, then connected for his sixth homer while batting left-handed against reliever Ron Piche in the seventh. Joined Select Group Burton thus joined a select group of seven other major leaguers who switch hit home runs in the same game. Most notable of the group is Mantle, who has done it on nine different occasions. Most recent before Burton was Maury Wills of the Dodgers, who did it last year. In addition to his two homers Thursday night, Steve Boros and Jim Schaffer also homered for the Cubs as Larry Jackson set down the Braves on seven hits Major League By The Associated Press AMERICAN LEAGUE W.

The St. Louis Cardinals climbed into a tie for second place with San Francisco by defeating the Cincinnati Reds, 3-2, in the only other National League game scheduled. Game Rained Out The only game scheduled in the American League was Boston at Baltimore and it was rained out. George Altman's fifth inning homer off Joey Jay broke up a 1-1 tie and paced the Cardinals to their victory over the Reds. Benched recently for weak hitting, Altman collected three of the Cardinals' seven hits. St. Louis increased its lead to 3-1 in the eighth on a walk, a single by Charlie James and Tim McCarver's sacrifice fly and that turned out to be the winning run when the Reds scored once in the ninth. Southpaw Curt Simmons won his 10th although he needed help from Ron Taylor and Bobby Shantz in the ninth. The hard luck Jay gave up six hits in seven innings and was charged With his 15th loss against four victories.

PAUL (UPD - Some of the golfers playing in the $35,000 St. Paul Open claim the greens "are as hard as a rock." But the granite-texture wasn't enough to stop 71 of the 137 entries from .•".hooting par or better. Liston Holds Key to Fight With Clay PHILADELPHIA (UPD—World heavyweight champion Sonny Liston held the key today to a proposed title bout between him and Cassius Clay here Sept. 30. Is Liston willing to bow out as a co-promoter of the bout with Bob and Jim Nilon? If not, the match appears doomed here. The Pennsylvania Athletic Commission already has ruled that it cannot grant a license to Intercontinental Promotions, Inc.. because Sonny is head of the firm. A state code bans a license promoter from having an interest in a boxer. Sonny was not available for his reaction. Bob Nilon, Chester, Pa., businessman, said he had not been in contact with the heavyweight king who was scheduled to box an exhibition at Missouri State Penitentiary in Jefferson City. Nilon said he could not say what Liston's reaction would be, but he pointed out that there would have to be some agreement by next week if the fight is to come off next month. Nilon said also that he was unable to talk with William Cherry, Intercontinental counsel, because of the death of the attorney's father. However, Nilon said he expects to discuss the license refusal with both Liston and Cherry by Sunday. Bob and Jim Nilon, along with Liston, had been scheduled to promote the title bout. Liston is president of intercontinental and owns 47% per cent of the stock. Jim Ferree, Corona, Calif., led a band of 57 under-par shooters Thursday with an eight-under 64 to take the first round edge and come within six strokes of the course record. Don Fairfield, Perdido Bay, Fla., was one shot back at 65 and Jerry Barber, 1961 PGA champion, was third with a 66. Ferree's best showing was at the Western Open in Chicago a week ago when he tied for 13th place and picked up $1,000. Jack Rule Jr., Cedar Rapids, Iowa, and Jerry Pittman, Tulsa, Okla., were tied for fourth place with 67. Bunched together at 68 were Randy Glover, Florence, N.C.; Raymond Floyd, Fayetteville, N. C; Tommy Jacobs, Bermuda Dunes, Calif.; John Cook, Minnetonka, Minn.; Brucke Crampton, Sidney, Australia; and Jacky Cupit, Corona, Calif. Dow Finsterwald, Tequesta, Fla., and Ken Venturi, Crystal River, Fla., were tied with seven others at 69. Defending champion Doug Sanders, Ojai, Calif., fired a 70. Arnold Palmer, Jack Nicklaus, and Gary Player were among the main golfers absent from the tourney. The field will be cut to 65 and ties after today's 18-hole round and play will continue on through Sunday. baseball White Sox vs. Angels **WGIL RAPfO THE SOUND CITIZEN 1400 ON YOUR DIAL Patterson Is Dropped Again PROVIDENCE, R.I. (AP) — Floyd Patterson went down again today. The former heavyweight champion, knocked out for the second time in the first round by titleholder Sonny Liston, was dropped from the top contender's spot to the No. 7 position in the World Boxing Association ratings. Elevated to the No. 1 spot was Cassius Clay. Doug Jones of New York was rated second, followed by Cleveland Williams of Houston. Also ranked ahead of Patterson were Billy Daniels of New York, Ernie Terrell of Chicago and Henry Cooper of England. A SURE HIT—New York Yankee Slugger Mickey Mantle, who has frequently found himself behind the eight ball because of injuries, is behind the seven ball in photo above. Mickey is demonstrating his deftness with a cue stick at a hotel in New York Thursday. He announced he will open up a coast-to-coast chain of "family-type" billiard centers. Snacks and soft drinks will be available, but no liquor, said the baseball star. UNIFAX U. S. Tracksters Seek 4th Straight Win at London READ THE CLASSIFIEDS! HANNOVER, Germany (UPD —The victorious United States men's track and field team, a third straight victory behind it, leaves today for London and a weekend meet with Britain's top athletes. The Yank men won 10 of Thursday's 11 events against Germany's men's team to close out a 141-82 victory. Previously on the current tour, the Americans beat the Russians and Poles in similar dual meets. A spectacular victory in the 1,600 meter relay highlighted Thursday's action with Lester Milburn, Ulis Williams, Rex Cawley and Henry Carr clocking 3.02.8 for the best time in this event anywhere in the world this year. The time was just short of the world record of 3:02.2 set by the United States in the 1960 Olympic Games. The Americans scored 1-2 sweeps in five of Thursday's events and lost only in the 10,000 meter run when Peter Kubicki defeated Jim Keefe of Central Connecticut State. The sweeps were -scored in the 200 meters, the 1,500 meters, the 400- meter hurdles, the shot put and the hop-step-and-jump. The Yanks also won the 3,000-meter steeplechase, the high jump, the javelin and the 10,000-meter walk. Jubiliant American men's coach Payton Jordan said he feels the team will bring home a world record before the tour is finished. "We are ready for a world record in the 400-meter relay in London on Saturday," said Jordan, "but we will have to improve on our baton passing to do it." Yesterday's Stars By The Associated Press BATTING — Ellis Burton, Cubs, became only the fifth player in National League history to hit home runs batting right-and left- handed in the same game as Chicago clobbered Milwaukee 10-2. PITCHING — Larry Jackson, Cubs, posted 12th victory by scattering seven hits in 10-2 triumph over Braves.

The Baltimore Colts who dominated the Western Division a few short years ago, returned to their foremost weapon—the forward pass — in Thursday's drill, which quarterbacks Johnny Uni- tas, Lamas McHan, and Gary Cuozzo throwing along with halfbacks Lenny Moore, Tom Matte and J. W. Lockett. The Cleveland Browns continued to polish their offense against the blitz with traps, flares*and .screen passes. Star of Thursday's workout was Frank Parker, a 6-6, 267-pound defensive tackle. Giants Sold Bill The New York Giants sold former Notre Dame lineman Bob Bill to the Washington Redskins for a 1964 draft choice. The 240- pound Bill, an offensive guard, spent last season on the Giants' "taxi squad" after injuring his knee in a pre-season game. The 'Skins sent linebacker Gene Cronin to a Washington hospitel for treatment from a severe lower back strain. Tom Landry, coach of the Dallas Cowboys, was especially pleased with his defense during the Cowboys' last heavy workout prior to next week's charity game against the Los Angeles Rams, ALIGNMENT GUARANTEED 4,000 MILES WHEEL <6.50 MODERN ALIGNMENT & BRAKE 131 NORTH CHERRY PHONE 343-1414 Hour* 9 to 9, Monday through Friday although quarterbacks Eddie Le- Bai'on and Don Meredith both looked good. Coach Norm Van Brocklin also found reason to be pleased with his Minnesota Vikings, who put on a polished performance. Veteran backs Tommy Mason and Bill Brown each scored a TD during a half-hour scrimmage. Colchico Returns Defensive end Dan Colchico returned to action with the San Francisco Forty-niners Thursday after a week's absence due to an inured right knee. In American Football League developments, sprinter Bo Roberson of the Oakland Raiders will miss Sunday's exhibition game against the Boston Patriots. Roberson, who suffered a pulled groin muscle 10 days ago, had been listed as a probable starter. The New York Jets acquired Constantinos (Charlie) Theokas from the Patriots and signed halfback Bill Wood, a free agent. Cookie Gilchrist, the AFL's leading ground gainer in 1962, gave his best performance of the training season during the Buffalo Bills' dummy drill, the Denver Broncos trimmed their roster to 60 men, and veteran linebacker Jack Rudolph joined the Patriot casualty list with a pulled muscle.

The All-Stars, coached by Otto Graham for the sixth consecutive year, have their share of 260 and 270 pound behemoths and more backfield speed than usual, but even Graham concedes that the experience of the Packers, NFL titleholders for the last two seasons, will make them hard to beat. The pro club has won 19 of the 30 games, the All-Stars eight and two games have been tied, while the Packers will be seeking to rack up the fifth straight pro triumph in the series and their 20th consecutive exhibition victory. Last year Green Bay whipped the Stars, 42-20, with a 21-point splurge in the fourth,period. Tonight's game was expected to draw about 65,000 fans to Soldier Field on Chicago's lake front despite network television over 209 stations and an uncomfortable weather forecast. The weather outlook was for a warm night' with a high temperature during the day between 83 and 90 and thundershowers likely.
