They figure a World Series with the Dodgers will be worth some $6,000 a man more than one with the Cardinals. The arithmetic Golf Meet Opens Today At Seattle SEATTLE (DPI) - Jack Nicklaus and 52 other touring professional golfers tee off today in the $35,000 Greater Seattle Open. Nicklaus will be after the $5,400 first-place money, which would enable him to overtake absent Arnold Palmer as the year's top money winner in professional golf. Nicklaus picked up $50,000 last weekend in winning the World Series of Golf. Nicklaus and his fellow louring pros headed a field of 140 who took to tlie greens at the Inglewood Country Club course. Billy Casper shot a scven-un- der-par 65 to win the $5,000 pro- amateur prelude Wednesday. Overtrick Big Favorite to Win Futurity YONKERS, N.Y. (AP) — Overtrick, Mrs. Leonard J. Buck's fast stepping colt, starts from the unfavorable No. 12 post position in tonight's $163,187 Cane Futurity at Yonkers Raceway. But nevertheless he's the 8-5 choice to take the measure of 10 other 3- year-old colts and one filly in the first jewel of the Triple Crown for pacing. The lone filly in the field is Richard Downing's Timely Beauty, who set a world record for juvenile fillies when she went a mile in 1:57 1-5 against the fence at Lexington, Ky., last fall. Meadow Skipper, purchased ,by Norman Woolworth of Winthrop, Maine, for $100,000 in June, is the second choice at 5-2 with the Bill Haughton-trained entry of Chapel Chief and Steady Beau also well regarded. Rounding out the field are the Stanley Dancer entry of Sly Yankee and William Time, Armbro Dale, Fly Fly Byrd, James B. Hanover, Meadow Russ and Rex Pick. The oldest league in the American Bowling Congress is the New York Bankers League of New York City. It is 73 years old. is simple. There, are some 55,000 seats in O'Malley's house in Los Angeles, and all within naked eye distance of home plate are called boxes, at $12 a copy. St. Louis has only 30,000 scats, few in the $12 class. The Yankees moved a step closer to their own annual American League pennant-clinching party by whipping the Kansas City Athletics 8-2 Wednesday night. Mickey Mantle smacked a three-run homer in the first inning and added a single and double. Whitey Ford won his 22nd game. Joe Pepilone also hit a two-run homer. The second-place Minnesota Twins also won, 9-3, over Cleveland. That left the magic number at three. In other AL action, the Chicago While Sox edged Baltimore 3-2, Washington trimmed Detroit 6-5 in 10 innings and Aubrey Gatewood pitched a four-hitter in his major league debut as the Los Angeles Angels defeated Boston 4-1. Harmon Killebrew hit his 38th homer—a grand slammer — and Earl Battey hit his 25th homer as Minnesota stayed one-half game ahead of the White Sox in their battle for second place. Eddie Fisher went the distance for the White Sox against Baltimore, winning his eighth with a three-hitter. Dave Nicholson hom­ ered for the Sox. Camilo Carreon also homered. Dick Phillips led off the 10th inning with his 10th homer for the Washington victory. Dick McAuliffe homered for the Tigers. Gatewood, 25, a right-hander just up from Memphis, lost his shutout bid in the ninth when Dick Stuart tripled and scored on Russ Nixon's sacrifice fly. Dark Makes Giants Stay After School NEW YORK (UPl)-Headmas- ter Alvin Dark kept the CMants after school for playing "bad ball." Dark ordered all his players back on the field for more than an hour at the Polo Grounds Wednesday after they lost their second straight game to the last- place Mets, 4-2. No one was excused, not even Willie Mays or starting pitcher Jack Sanford, who was knocked out In the second inning. "When the team plays badly, everyone stays," said the grini San Francisco manager, who has held three such previous extra curricular sessions this season. Wednesday's loss to the Mets dropped the fourth-place Giants 10 games off the pace, and since San Francisco no longer can really be considered a pennant factor Dark was asked what possible good a post-game workout could accomplish. "Our standing at the moment has nothing to do with it," he said. "We've been playing bad ball and we haven't been hitting," he added. "1 honestly feel this extra practice will help the club, and I also think it helps the players mentally." Dark insisted the workout was not intended as any kind of punishment measure although it certainly looked like one. "They earn a big-league salary and I want them to play as hard as they can," he explained. "The club hasn't been producing runs, and I feel this is the only way to do it. "The Mets beat us two days in a row. I'm not knocking them, but we should have done much better." Joe Perry Gets Part Time Duty With Frisco SAN FRANCISCO (AP) — Joe "The Jet" Perry, professional football's all-time rushing leader, is back with the San Francisco 49ers—though only on a part-time basis. Perry, released Wednesday by tlie Baltimore Colts, has signed with San Francisco as a "taxi" member. "Taxis" are a genus of "red- shirt alumni," who do not hold regular spots on the roster, but who are brought up in case of injury to a regular player.

(UPD—Defend­ ing champion Shirley Englehorn, out of a hospital less than a week, began her bid for a repeat championship in the $10,000 Eugene Ladies Open golf tournament today. The Caldwell, Idaho, girl was hospitalized in her hometown last Friday after becoming ill. Tests revealed nothing more serious than nervous exhaustion, but it caused her to miss out on the Spokane Women's Open. She would like to make up for it with the $1,250 first prize here. Miss Englehorn punished the 6,522-yard par 38-36—74 Eugene Country Club course last year with a pair of 69s, the first time a woman had broken 70 on the course. Other pre-meet favorites were Kathy Whitworth, winner of the Spokane Open, and Mickey Wright, who was after her 10th victory this year. Joe Cronin, now the president of the American League, is the only player ever to pinch-hit home runs in both games of a doubleheader. Cards Blank Cubs Again, Keep Pace With Dodgers Sadecki and Taylor Limit Chicago to Just Five Hits I m LONG WALK—Willie Mays, who patrolled ccntcrfJeld in the Polo Grounds for several years, takes the long slow solitary walk to the dressing room after the Giants dropped their second straight game to the Mets, 4-2. Mays, and all the Giants, were to make their final appearance in the storied stadium today. UNIFAX Coach Sherman Insists That Giants Are Solid Grid Team By BOB GREEN Coach Allie Sherman stoutly maintains that his New York Giants are sound, in fact "we might have the best team In the last three years." But the coach of the defending Eastern Division champions in the National Football League made a move that indicates he's far from overloaded i- talent going into the weekend opener against Baltimore. Sherman, whose Giants won just two of five exhibition games, dropped Jim Pace, a halfback, from the roster Wednesday. That put the Giants one man under the 37-playcr roster limit. "It will give us a little room to pick up a player elsewhere if we desire," Sherman explained. Baltimore, which lost only once in five exhibitions—and that with Johnny Unitas out of action—is a slight favorite. Unitas sat out the final exhibition with a sore shoulder but is reported ready for full time action against tho Giants. The Green Bay Packers, defending league champions, are report­ ed at full strength for their opener against the Chicago Bears. They bolstered their defensive secondary Wednesday with the acquisition of halfback Jerry Norton from Dallas. The Bears also are expected to be at full strength. There is some doubt about San Francisco's troubled 49ers, however. John Brodie, their No. 1 quarterback, has an injured throwing arm and his status against am- mined for the opener against ambitious Minnesota. The season opens with two Saturday night games, St. Louis at Dallas and Detroit at Los Angeles. Sunday, New York is at Baltimore, Washington at Cleveland, Minnesota at San Francisco and Pittsburgh at Philadelphia. Tho American Football League, In its second week of regular sea- By MIKE RATHET Associated Press Sports Writer The St. Louis Cardinals' Ray Sadecki and Ron Taylor combined for a five-hit, 4-0 job against the Chicago Cubs Wednesday night that kept second-place St. Louis three games behind the Los Angeles Dodgers with their third straight shutout. The win extended the Cardinals' streak to five games while producing (he 14th victory in the last 15 games. While the Cardinals kept up the pressure, Maury Wills applied some for the Dodgers against Pittsburgh, stroking four hits, starting three rallies and driving in two runs as Los Angeles maintained its grip on the top spot by belting the Pirates 9-4. In other NL action. Vada Pinson collected two homers, including his 1,000th major league hit, and Gordy Coleman hit a grand slam ' in Cincinnati's 14-3 thurnnine of ! Milwaukee, Houston's Dick Farrell four-hit Philadelphia 4-2 and the New York Mets defeated San Francisco 4-2. Sadecki, 9-8, started against Cub ace Dick Ellsworth, 20-9, allowing only four hits in 5 2-3 innings, but was bothered by periodic wildness and Manager Johnny Keane decided* to bring in Tayior. Taylor allowed only a single the rest of the way. Wills led off the first and third innings for the Dodgers with singles and each time stole second and scored. Wills also drove in two of three Los Angeles runs in the fourth. Don Drysdale started for the Dodgers but gave way to Pete Richert, who in turn needed Ron Perranoski's relief help. Richert. tagged for a homer by Smoky Burgess, £*ot the victory for a 4-1 record. Bob Veale, 2-2, took the loss. Jim Maloney won his 22nd game as the Reds pounded the Braves The Colts won when rookie Jim Wynn hit a two-run homer that snapped a 2-2 tie against the Phillies. The Mets got the job done against the Giants as A' Jackson pitched a seven-hitter and Tim Harkness cracked three singles. fa By The Associated Press AMERICAN LEAGUE Operate Joint Team HOUSTON (UPD - The Houston Colts and Boston Red Sov will operate a joint team in the Florida Instructional League this win ter. , , D , . r, "We are sharing a team with son play, has Boston at San Diego , , • because neither of and Denver at Houston in Saturday night games and Buffalo at Oakland Sunday.

Notre Dame Could Return to Power By ED SAINSBURY SOUTH BEND, Ind. (UPD Notre Deme football is a game away from returning to its former standard close to the top of the national ratings. The game is Wisconsin, the opener for the Irish on Sept. 28, and if Notre Dame wins, the gung ho of Irish spirit, once its proudest possession, could well return. If Notre Dame loses, the Irish could be doomed to another mediocre season, the eighth in a row. Hugh Devore, the "interim" coach who is fighting to retain the job with a successful season, knows he has some good football players. But he doesn't know how their spirit is or how high it can soar. But Devore knows that spirit could be the answer. To that end, he has organized a defensive backfield of specialists, Frank Budka, Tom MacDonald, Denny Phillips and Bill Pfeiffer. "1 can put them in on defense, and if they got caught in there," he said "they can play offense too. But they're defensive specialists. They like defense and they're good at ii seem ti> be developing tlie gung ho spirit and I'm trying to help them." Such spirit hasn't spread to the rest of the squad. There's no suggestion of the old Fighting defiance that made Notre Dame great in the days of Knute Rockne and Frank Leahy. But it's smoldering. "I can feel it," one of tho veteran coaches said. "If we win that first game, MICRO MIDGET AUTO RACES SQUIRES SPEEDWAY FINAL RACE OF THE SEASON SATURDAY, SEPT. 14, 1963 5 Miles West Off Rte. 34 TIME TRIALS - 7:30 P.M. RACES - 8:30 P.M.

If we lose, it could ruin us." The Irish backfield boasts two competent quarterbacks, Denis Szot, with experience, and John Huarte, an expert passer. It has a fine sophomore fullback Pete Duranko, and experienced halfbacks, Joe Farrell on the inside and Jack Snow at the flank. They're big, Duranko at 215, Farrell at 210, and Snow at 220. In the line, Jim Kelly at the split end has good speed, good hands and good size at 215. His running mate, tight end Tom Goberville, is 203 pounds, tough on defense, with replacement Dave Pivec, a 225 pounder, probably the best pass receiver on the squad. Tackles were hurt when both Dave Humenik and Gene Penman were injured and went through knee operations, but Dick Arring- ton, Nick Etten, Mike Webster, at 258 pounds, and John Meyer wouldn't surprise by becoming more than adequate. Guards are experienced and expert with' George Bednar and Bob Lehmann, and center Jim Carroll may be one of the best in the midwest. There's a chance for development of a solid offense, a tough defense, and for Devore it's the hope of a lifetime, to insure continuation in his job. All that's needed is spirit, whether it's gung ho, or of old Notre Dame. Look out, Wisconsin. Hardin - Simmons University may be in Abilene, Tex., but 20 of the 38 members of its 1963 football squad are non-Texans. Eight are from Florida. READ THE CLASSIFIEDS!
