\ the Reboti Stake in State Softball JOE MORMSSEY Sports Editor Half of the original field of 12 teams are still in the N.L $ By MILTON MCHMAN UP1 Sports Writer Oh no, not again I It sure looks like a rerun of running for the state Softball title and a world tourna- 1 last year's race, with the flatter- ment berth with the finals scheduled for Sunday night on the Andover diamond. One of three games Friday night that is of definite area interest will pit Bishop Hill and Falstaff of Abingdon. Neither team has been beaten in the double elimination tournament. Last night Rock Falls, pre-tourney favorite was a 1-0 winner over Italian Village of Monmouth. This was the first loss for the Monmouth club with Rock Falls still unscored upon. The little league of Andover is the sponsoring organization with Russell E. Six the tournament director. Frank Krone, prominent sports official in this area, is the state Softball commissioner. So far tournament competition has produced closely contested games with one and two run games the rule rather than the exception. The winner of the state meet at Andover will earn a berth in the World Softball tournament in Rock Island, also a double elimination affair, which opens Saturday, Aug. 24. All-session tickets for the World Softball tournament in Rock Island may be obtained by calling collect to the tournament headquarters (7886859) at the Fort Armstrong Hotel in Rock Island through Aug. 22. No collect calls are to be made on requests for individual game reserve seats. Requests for single session tickets should not be made until after Aug. 22. It was first planned to use LeGrand's service station as an outlet for tickets in Galesburg but tournament officials decided to confine the ticket sale to one city. We were caught with our "slip" showing in an American Legion tournament story Monday. Because of an error in transcribing the box score we credited Mike Davis with two hits and omitted Ken Rodgers entirely. Actually Rodgers had singled as a pinch- hitter for Davis in the seventh and scored a run. Our apologies to Rodgers and thanks to an alert reader. Yesterday's Stars By The Associated Press BATTING Dick Stuart, Red Sox, rapped six hits, including 29th homer, and drove in six runs, splitting output equally in 14-7, 5-4 doubleheader sweep of American League-leading New York Yankees. PITCHING—Dick Donovan, Indians, defeated Chicago White Sox 1-0 in 11 innings, allowing only four singles and retiring 18 in a row at one stretch.

That was the pattern not only a year ago but Wednesday night, too, when the Giants moved within three games of the top with a 7-6 victory over the Reds in 10 innings while the Braves beat the Dodgers, 5-3. Slump-ridden Jim Davenport and Felipe Alou came off the bench to spark the victory for the Giants, who now have won 16 of their last 22 games. Exactly a year ago they had won 15 to 22. Davenport, who along with Alou had been benched recently for not hitting, entered the game in the sixth inning and opened the 10th with a double off Cir> cinnati reliever Sill Henry. One out later, Alou pinch-hit for winning pitcher Don Larsen and singled to right field to score Davenport. Makes First Start Rookie right-hander Frank Linzy made his first major league start for San Francisco but was routed after giving up eight hits and three runs in two innings. The Giants pecked away at Red starter John Tsitouris and went ahead, 5*3, after Willie PLEADING CASE?—Pitcher Phil Regan of De him safe at plate. Regan was tagged out at the troit is on his knees and appears to be begging plate by Doc Edwards (10), of the Athletics, Umpire Red Flaherty (not in picture) to call in a close play. UNIFAX Mays hit his 29th homer with one on in the sixth and Willie McCovey socked his 34th with a man aboard in the seventh. Vada Pinson's three-run homer in the bottom of the seventh gave the Reds the lead again but the Giants tied the score in the eighth. Hank Aaron's grand slam homer in the seventh inning dealt the Dodgers their third straight loss. Hhs wallop came off Don Drysdale, who went down to his 13th defeat against 15 victories. In contrast to the Giants, the Dodgers have won only nine of their last 22 games. Cards Also Gain The third-place Cardinals also took advantage of the Dodgers' setback to move within four games of first place with a 3-2 victory over the Colts. The Phillies beat the Cubs twice, 7-2 and 9-3, to move into a virtual tie for fifth place, and the Mets downed the Pirates, 4-2. Bob Gibson struck out 10 Colt batters and walked off with his 13th victory for the Cardinals when Bill White broke a 2-all tie by rapping his 21st homer in the seventh innine off loser Ken inning Johnson. Gibson and Johnson (6-16) each gave up eight hits. Phils Take Two Reliever Johnny Klippstein blanked the Cubs on two hits over the final 6 1-3 innings of the first game as the Phillies capitalized on three errors to beat Larry Jackson despite Ernie Banks' 18th homer. The Phils then came from behind to win the nightcap with the help of homers by Johnny Callison and Don Demeter. Dennis Bennett (5-2) was the winner. Alvin Jackson beat the Pirates for the first time in his career to post his eighth victory for the Mets with Larry Bearnarth's aid in the eighth. The Mets wrapped up the game when they kayoed loser' Don Schwall (6-7) during a two-run rally in the sixth. Frank Thomas and Donn Clendenon hit homers.

In the National League, the pace-setting Los Angeles Dodgers dropped their second consecutive game. But the Chicago Cubs did worse—they lost a doubleheader. So rather than going further up the ladder, the Chicago baseball teams can only hope that lightning strikes again. The White Sox did pick up % game on the league-leading Yankees. The Sox fell victim to an old friend, former teammate Dick Donovan, who spun a four-hitter. Willie Kirkland banged his 13th home run in the 11th inning to give the Cleveland Indians a 1-0 victory over Ray Herbert.

Effective relief pitching by Johnny Klippstein gave the Phils the first game 7-2 and Dennis Bennett went the route in the nightcap to win 9-3. The twin victory moved the Phillies into a virtual tie for fifth place with the Cubs. Ernie Banks crashed his 18th home run in the first game to give the Cubs a second-inning lead, but three Cub errors paved the way for Larry Jackson's 11th defeat against 13 victories. Johnny Callison and Don Demeter each hit their 18th home runs for the Phils in the twi-night affair. Back-to-back home runs by Steve Boros and Ellis Burton gave the Cubs a 3-0 second game lead. But the Phils clouted Paul Toth (3-8) into submission in the fifth inning to sew up Bennett's fifth victory. Tonight, the Cubs will send Bob Buhl (9-10) to the Connie Mack Stadium mound to face the Phillies 1 Cal McLich (11-8). beat the Washington Senators at Los Angeles, 2-0, and the Detroit Tigers whipped the Athletics at Kansas City, 5-2. Allen, benched most of the season by a weak bat and hitting .195, lashed a Stu Miller serve into right field to score Vic Power who had doubled, with the winner. Bill Daley, who hurled four innings of shutout relief collected his fourth victory. He has lost two. The Yankees saw their, six- game victory streak ended by a barrage of 19 hits in the Boston daylight and then had a four-run rally in the ninth inning just fall short under the lights in the day- night doubleheader. Dick Stuart had a picnic against the Yanks. He collected six hits and drove in six runs. The Sox first baseman clouted his 29th homer, a two-run shot in the eighth inning of the second game. The crowning blow, however, was relief pitcher Jack Lamabe's first hit of the season—a three-run homer in Boston's five-run seventh inning of the first game.

Aderhold, University of Georgia and three athletic testified president, board members have they believe former coach Wally Butts has a bad character. Several more athletic board members were prepared to take the stand today in the federal court trial of Butts' $10-million libel suit against the Curtis Publishing Co. The suit resulted from football- fix charges against Butts by the Saturday Evening Post, published by Curtis. Aderhold said Wednesday that Butts' business interests had interfered with his duties as athletic director prior to his resignation Feb. 28. The stocky Butts, who spent 21 years as head coach at Georgia and then 2Vfe years just athletic director, resigned the day after he was confronted with charges thai he fed data on his team to Coach Paul Alabama. (Bear) Bryant of In his testimony, Butts said he resigned to avoid embarrassment to the university. When asked his opinion of Butts* character, Aderhold said: "1 would say it's bad." The 58-year-old Butts sat impassively. Aderhold started to comment further but was stopped by Judge Lewis R. Morgan who ruled that no specifics could be discussed. Similar testimony about Butts' character was given by Prof. Harold Heckman. Prof. R. H. Driftmeyer and alumnus William T. Bradshaw, all athletic board members.
