4 NFL Teams in Shape By United Press International Coaches Vince Lombardi of Green Bay, George Wilson of Detroit, Buddy Parker of Pittsburgh and George Halas of Chicago had bad news for the rest of the National Football League Tuesday. All four pronounced their teams in top physical condition for this weekend's opening games of the NFL season. Parker said his Steelers were in their best physical condition for the start of a season in years. He credited a new pre-season physical fitness program which stressed running and no contact sessions for the lack of iniuries. The Packers were sent through an unusually rough Monday workout by Lombardi, who denounced Green Bay's winning effort last Saturday night as "sloppy." Tackel Dave Hanner suffered a broken thumb in the exhibition game with Washington but is expected to play Sunday. Wi'son said the Lions were in the best condition since the train ing season opened. Ollie Matron, whom the Lions obtained from the Rams last month, ran at top speed Monday for the first time Defensive end Bob Kilcullen linebacker Larry Morris and back Charlie Bivins were taken off the Bears' injured list. Halas said middle linebacker Tom Bpl- tis, with an elbow injury, might miss the Bears' ooener with Green Bay. Back Billy Martin, who broke a bone in his leg Saturday, is the only Bear definitely out. The Giants were heartened by the return of backs Phil King and Alex Webster to full time status for New York. However, veteran backs Frank Gifford and Hugh McElhenny and guards Bookie Bolin and Darrell Dess are still nursing injuries. In other camps: The Los Angeles Rams signed two-way lineman Stan Fanning from the Chicago Bears and obtained lineman Larry Stephens from Dallas... The San Francisco Forty Niners learned defensive halfback Jerry Mertens would undergo surgery for torn knee ligaments and that guard Mike Magac suffered a dislocated shoulder.. .Coach Weeb Ewbank of the American Football League New York Jets gave his team a three-day vacation Monday.. .Gene Heeter, rookie end, was the only Jets' casualty.

Jimmie Hall, Gary Peters Battle for Rookie Honors By JIM BECKER Associated Press Sports Writer Outfielder Jimmie Hall is making a drive for American League rookie honors with his bat. So is pitcher Gary Peters of the Chicago White Sox. Hall banged his 30th and 31st home runs for the Minnesota Twins Monday night in a 7-4 victory over Cleveland, tying the league Simmons Blanks Chicago; LA Idle By MIKE RATHET Associated Press Sports Writer Curt Simmons, admittedly working on his "second career," has reached another lofty plateau while moving the challenging St. Louis Cardinals to within three games of the National League leading Los Angeles Dodgers. The 34-year-old left-hander posted the 30th shutout of his career Monday night, stopping the Chicago Cubs 6-0 on five hits as the homer record for rookies set hv Ted Williams in 1039. eighth, Bobby DelGrcco singled, went to third when Reniff threw Peters won his 18th game and wild on a pickoff attenmi and the 12th in his last 13 games 9-4 scored on Jerry Lumpe's bunt, over the Baltimore Orioles. He rapped two hits, a single and a double, for his 18th and 19th hits of the vear. Both drove in runs. In other AL action, the New York Yankees blew a fi-0 lead as their pennant clinching drive stalled in a 7-6 loss to Kansas City. The Detroit Tigers swept a doubleheader from the Washington Senators, 1-0 and 10-7, and the Boston Red Sox trimmed the Los Angeles Angels 5-2. Hall's two homers ran his batting average to .266—not bad in a league where .284 gets you into the top ten—and his RBI total to 72. Ahead is the major league rookie homer mark of 38, by Wally Berger and Frank Robinson. Peters has three home runs, a triple and four doubles in his 19 hits, and has 12 RBIs. He is hitting .250. That is much higher than his earned run average which is 1.95, the best in the major leagues for starting pitchers. Peters has 12 complete games and leads the American League in strikeouts with 179. His immediate target is 20 victories. The last rookie to reach that total was Bob Grim of the Yankees in 1954. Jim Bouton of the Yankees was shooting for his 20th against the Athletics and had things well under control going into the seventh. After he gave up a hit and a walk, Stev" Hamilton relieved Detroit got its only run in the opener off Claude Osteen on a Washington error. Jim Bunning went eight scoreless innings and Terry Fox saved the shutout when Bunning left in the ninth inning with a pulled leg muscle. Fox also put down a Senator rally in the second game, Senators' rookie Bob Baird didn't survive the first inning. The Red Sox came from behind with four in the ninth to give Earl Wilson his 10th victory. Lu Clinton tripled the tying run home and scored on a pinch single by Dick Williams. Atlanta Hopes To Even Series INDIANAPOLIS (AP)-The Atlanta Crackers are hoping southpaw Riverboat Smith can even their best four-of-seven playoff for the Governor's Cup with the Indianapolis Indians tonight. Indianapolis took a 1-0 lead in the International League series Monday night, beating the Crackers 10-4. The Indians took advantage of four Atlanta errors.

The Cardinals haven't been this close to the front-runners since July 4. The Dodgers, who were not scheduled Monday night, have 19 games remaining to the Cardinals' 17, including a three-game series between the two teams at St. Louis starting next Monday. While Simmons took care of the pitching, Bill White took care of the punch for the Cardinals, becoming the third National Leaguer this season to reach the 100-RBI level by driving in three runs with a double and two singles. Tonight, the Cardinals will again play the Cubs, sending Bob Gibson, 16-8, to the mound, against Chicago's Glen Hobbie, 7-9.

Simmons, registering his second straight shutout and his fifth of the season, got into his only jam in the sixth inning when he was touched for a double and an infield hit with two out. Simmons then bore down and got Ron Santo to pop up. Rookie Bob Sadowski won his fourth straight game for the Braves in the opener, limiting the Reds to six hits and bringing his record to 5-5. Eddie Mathews drove in three runs with a pair of singles while Gordy Coleman accounted for the Cincinnati runs with two homers. In the nightcap, Hank Aaron tagged his 39th homer, with a man aboard in the seventh inning, to clinch it and extend Milwaukee's winning streak to seven games. Bob Hendley got the victory.

The Wildcats also lost sophomore Ron Giraurod, who quit the squad because of recurring headaches.
