Cards in Do-or-Die Series Battle Dodgers ;After Disposing Of San Francisco By TIM MORIARTY UPI Sports Writer Seven weeks ago tonight the St. Louis Cardinals , ,.;marched into Los Angeles as the surprise leaders of the ^National League. They stumbled out of town three nights later enraged and emba r r a s s e d They had dropped three -straight decisions, including "a pair of shutouts, to the TAKES SIGN — Sandy Koufax looks in to get sign from Los Angeles Catcher Johnny Roseboro.

READ THE CLASSIFIEDS1 Dodgers, who dislodged them from first place. Now the Cardinals are back in the City of Angels for another three-game set starting tonight. This one can make or break Johnny Keane's upstarts, who completed a three-game sweep over the San Francisco Giants by grinding out a comeback 8-7 triumph Monday at St. Louis. The Cards' latest victory gave them undisputed possession of second place, 5Vz games back of the idle Dodgers. V" h time running out in the NL race, they must win at least two of three from Los Angeles this time to keep their pennant hopes alive. And should the Dodgers sweep this series as they did last month it will be bye bye Redbirds. Leave Giants Reeling The Cardinals left the defending champion Giants reeling on the ropes ..and &k games off the pace. The Giants took a 7-5 lead in the top of the ninth with a three- run burst that featured Felipe Alou's two-run triple. Alou, though, wound up as the goat when the Cards pushed across three runs in the bottom of the inning for their hard-earned vie tory. Bill White walked to lead off the frame and Ken Boyer followed with his second two-run homer of the game to tie the score. Jack Fisher relieved Billy Hoeft at this point and retired the next two batters before Julian Javier singled. Catcher Tim McCarver then singled to right center. When Alou bobbled the ball, Javier scored all the way from first on the hit and error. Sam Jones, although nicked for those three San Francisco runs in the ninth, was credited with the victory — his first since his recent reprieve from the minors. Fisher suffered his ninth loss against six victories. Phils Win Again The Philadelphia Phillies scored their eighth straight victory and moved to within 1% games of third place by nipping the New York Mets, 1-0, behind the five- hit pitching of Dennis Bennett in the only other NL game. A pair of home runs by Max Alvis powered the Cleveland Indians to an 8-3 victory over the Boston Red Sox in the lone American League game. The Phillies scored a run off Galen Cisco in the second inning on successive singles by Don Demeter, Clay Dalrymple and Bobby Wine. That was all the margin Bennett needed as he rolled to his sixth victory in eight decisions and his first shutout of the campaign. Alvis knocked in six runs with his pair of homers and Joe Azcue accounted for Cleveland's other tallies with a solo homer, a double and a single. Dick Stuart of the Red Sox unloaded his 31st and 32nd homers, including an inside-the-park clout, a rarity at tiny Fenway Park.

The winner will join Jack Nicklaus, the Masters and PGA champion; Julius Boros, the U.S. Opc/i king, and Bob Charles, the left­ hander who won the British Open, for the two-day medal play match for the World Series of Golf prize here Sept. 7-8. Although Palmer has more credentials than any golfer in the world, they were not good enough to qualify him for the big jackpot. Palmer has established a new single-season money-winning record with a total of $96,966 in official prize money and has won six tournaments — more than any other golfer — this year. But the format for the World Series of Golf calls for the winners of the world's four major tournaments — the Masters, the U.S. and British Opens and the PGA — to meet in this money event. Nicklaus ruined that format when he won the PGA in July at Dallas to go with his Masters title. So those who finished in playoffs in any of those tournaments were chosen to meet for the fourth Qualifying spot. Palmer and Cupit tied Boros for the U.S. Open title and lost in an 18 -hole playoff; Rodgers tied Charles for the British Open title and lost in a 36-hole playoff. The winner of today's playoff starting at 9 a.m., EDT automat ically will be assured of $5,000, for that is the amount that goes to the third and fourth place win ners in the World Series of Golf. The first place winner gets the $50,000 while second place is worth $15,000. The playoff losers today will receive $1,000 each. For Palmer, Cupit and Rodgers today's playoff served a second purpose — a tune-up for the $55,000 American Golf Classic starting Thursday over the same layout — the long Firestone Country Club course.

TOKYO (UPI) — Japanese swimming experts and fans were thoroughly disgusted today with Japan's one-sided defeat in the three-day dual meet with the United States. There was mounting criticism of the training program of the Japan Swimming Federation, and the Japanese Education Ministry was requested to permit competitive swimming among grade school children in an effort to develop swimmers. The Japanese people, long swimming enthusiasts, were shocked by the 63-22 victory scored by the 17-man American team, averaging 18 years in age, in the meet which ended Monday at the 50-meter outdoor Meijl pool. Japanese swimming experts First Division Teams Win in Midwest League The five first division teams in the Midwest League defeated the bottom five teams in the loop standings Monday night. This left the standings unchanged except that the second division clubs were one more game behind front-running Clinton which retained its two-game edge over Burlington. Clinton defeated Fox Cities, 10-7 and Burlington posted a 4-1 victory over Cedar Rapids. In other games, No. 3 Quad Cities dumped Quincy, 9-5; Wisconsin Rapids defeated Waterloo, 7-3; and Decatur edged Dubuque, 6-5. The same teams play tonight, with Waterloo at Wisconsin Rapids, Clinton at Fox Cities, Quincy at Quad Cities, Decatur at Dubuque, and Burlington at Cedar Rapids. TERRY FOR GOLF? NEW YORK (UPI) - Ralph Terry, World Series pitching hero of the New York Yankees, is regarded as good prospect for professional golf. had predicted a U. S. victory in the dual meet, held traditionally in the year immediately preceding the Olympic Games, but had expected the results to be much closer. Some of them felt that the U. S. swimming authorities had not selected the strongest available team but had included several swimmers with poorer times for the explicit purpose of training training them for next year's Olympic Games. Ted Stickles, world record holder in the 400-meter individual medley, and Tom Stock, world record holder in the backstroke, were not on the American team. The Americans established five new world records — 17-year-old Don Schollander of Santa Clara, Calif., in the 200-meter freestyle; 18-year-old Roy Saari of El Segundo, Calif., in the 1,500 meters; Carl Robie of the University of Michigan in the 200-meter butterfly; and the 400-meter and 800- meter relays. HOLD IT UP is the message Willie Mays of the San Francisco Giants is trying to convey to his teammates on base in the game with the Cardinals Monday. Cardinal catcher Tim McCarver retrieved a short passed ball and no runners could advance. St. Louis triumphed in extra innings after the game had been delayed almost three hours by rain. UNIFAX IL Stars Blank Yanks, 5-0 BUFFALO, N. Y. (UPI) - The world champion New York Yankees are not too proud to take a pitching and hitting lesson once in a while. The International League All- Stars were the expert teachers Monday night before the largest crowd in Buffalo baseball history — 28,524. The Stars, piloted by Jacksonville manager Casey Wise, administered a 5-0 licking to the Yankees in one hour and 54 minutes. The Stars clubbed 10 hits, seven off the offerings of losing pitcher Bill Stafford and three off southpaw Bud Daley. The two most damaging blows were a two- run home run by Arkansas left fielder Richie Allen in the first inning and a beses-empty shot by Richmond second baseman Pedro Gonzalez, a Yankee farmhand, in the second. While the Stars were hitting Illinois, California May Join Forces Against WBA MIAMI BEACH (UPI) - The World Boxing Association (WBA), buffeted by criticism that it has no control over the fight game, saw more clouds rising at its 44th annual convention today with the threat of two big states to "go it alone." If the two — California and Illinois — should drop out of the WBA, they would join New York and Michigan as the only non- Two Performers Steal Show In Tourney WILLIAMSTOWN, Mass (UPI) — Defending champion Jo Anne Gunderson, a Sunday golfer with a pro-like drive, went into the second round at the 63rd USGA Women's Amateur tournament today bent on outdoing Mrs. Anne Quast Welts. Both girls staged sparkling sub- par performances Monday to earn second round berths at the Taconic Golf Club in this scenic Berkshire Hilles community. Miss Gunderson, a 23-year-old blonde school teacher from Providence, R. I., who is seeking her fourth title in seven years, ousted Mrs. William Warren of Rochester, N. Y„ 6 and 5, with a front nine one-under-par 35. Mrs. Welts of Mt. Vernon, Wash., chasing her third title since 1958, also carded a 35 going out and similarity defeated her opponent, Mrs. John Pennington of Buffalo, N. Y., 6 and 5. READ THE CLASSIFIEDS!

ADULTS 12.00 CHILDREN 50c member states in the country. Neither state sent a delegation to the meeting here, but representatives of their athletic commissions said Monday they were unhappy with the association. Harry Falk Jr., chairman of the California Athletic Commission, said at La Jolla that the WBA is getting weaker. He said he looked at the agenda and saw "too many cocktail parties and not enough work." Falk said that if California remains in the WBA, the big question which the association must answer is "What can you do for us?" California dropped out of the WBA in 1960, but was pulled back into the fold in 1962. The Illinois commission indicated it felt it was rebuffed when none of its members was appointed to WBA committees. Joe Trainer, a spokesman for the Illinois group, said that "nobody had the sense to put one of us on a committee. There is a possibility we may withdraw." "We're not going to be dictated to by anybody," he said. sharply, the Yankees could muster but two safties off the serves of winning pitcher Willie Smith, a stylish Syracuse left-hander. Rochester right-handed Nelson Chittum, Arkansas southpaw Billy Smith and Atlanta right-hand­ er Harry Fanok. Center fielder Jack Reed hit a single to center with two gone in the fifth for the first Yankee hit and John Blanchard doubled off the right field screen in the seventh. No Yankee reached third base. :( Allen got^ a third-inning single in addition to his homer and Jacksonville first baseman Al Barker ripped two singles to pace the All-Star attack. The victory squared the exhibition series between major and minor league opponents at four games apiece. Daley, who has appeared in only one game for the Yanks this season, gave up two eight-inning runs on a single to Gene Stephens of Indianapolis, a double by Walt Bond of Jacksonville, an error by third baseman Harry Bright and a sacrifice fly by Gene Alley of Columbus. Stafford struck out six during his six-inning stint while the four All-Star pitchers totaled nine strikeouts. The Stars stranded eight men and the Yanks left five runners on base. N. Y.
