14 Galesburg Register-Moil, Golesburg, III, Friday, Sept. 27, 1963 MetsHave Word on Howard But Can H Ma ke It Work By MILTON WCHMAN Ul»l Sports Writer The word on Frank Howard is curve him low and away and if that information is as much help to the Yankees as it was to the Mets, brother, are they in trouble Of course, the Mets have a delightful faculty for lousing up the best baseball information. They know how to pitch to Howard as well as Warren Spahn does, but somehow the results usually are different. Like Thursday night, for example, when the big Dodger outfielder slugged a single, a double and then a three-run homer in the eighth inning to lead the new National League champs to a 5-4 victory over the Mots. The Yankees discussed how to pilch to Howard during an off- day pre-World Series meeting at Yankee Stadium Thursday. The Major Leoguej STANDINGS By The Associated Press AMERICAN LEAGUE W. L. Pet.

Yorty starts a 2,521- mile relay run from Los Angeles- to-Detroit today, handing a lighted torch to track star Jim Beatty in ceremonies at the city hall. Proclaiming this "Olympic Torch Relay Day" in Los Angeles, the mayor urged citizens to demonstrate the nation's solid support behind Detroit in its drive to land the 1968 Olympic Games. Los Angeles battled Detroit and lost for the honor of being the American city in contention for the Olympic Games, but Yorty suggested that all now urge the selection of Detroit. Route 66 will be followed to Chicago and U.S. 12 and Interstate 94 through Indiana and into Detroit. Other states through! which the run will be made are Arizona, New Mexico, Texas, Oklahoma, Missouri and Illinois.

They knew all they had to about him. Carl Willey was sailing along with a 4-2 lead until the eighth when Galen Cisco took over and yielded Howard's 28th homer. The blow traveled 400 feet and landed in the left field bleachers at Chavez Ravine. Larry Sherry started for the Dodgers, gave up four runs on five hits over the first five innings and departed in favor of Ken Rowe, who gained his first major league victory. Rowe blanked the Mets over the next three innings after which relief ace Ron Perranoski made his 69th appearance and held New Yi k iii es in r 'no ninth. Dodger manager Walt Alston rested a number of his regulars in using 17 players. Lee Walls also homered for Los Angeles. Only three other games were played in the majors. Houston beat Pittsburgh, 5-4, in 11 innings and San Francisco mauled Philadelphia, 10-0, in the National League, while Cleveland defeated Kansas City, 4-1, in 10 innings in the only American League contest. Bob Aspromontc's single with two out in the llth inning enabled the Colts to sweep their three- game series with the Pirates. MeMahon Won First Aspromonte's gam e-winner came off one-time relief ace Roy Face and enabled Don McMahon to gain his first victory of the year following five straight losses. Jim Wynn hit a two-run homer in the sixth and tied the score at 4-all with a run-producing triple in the eighth. Willie McCovey's 44th homer and the three-hit pitching of Billy O'Dell led the Giants to their victory over the Phillies. The Giants kayoed Dallas Green with a six-run burst in the first inning and after McCovey connected with two on off reliever Paul Brown in the third inning, Ed Bailey hit his 20th homer with none on in the same frame. Woodie Held launched a three- run 10th inning rally with his 17th home run to pace the Indians to victory over the A's. Held's homer came off loser Moe Drabowsky (7-13). Gary Bell relieved rookie starter Tommy John in the seventh and pitched three hitlcss innings to register his eighth victory.

However, Jockey Ismael Valenzuela, who rides the three-time Horse of the Year, isn't buying such talk. Only four horses are expected to oppose Kelso, who has won six stakes in a row under top weight. But all have pretty solid credentials. They include Mrs. Katherine Price's Carry Valley Falls To Cuba in League Play FAIRV1EW — A five-yard run by fullback Thurman, with two minutes remaining in the game, gave Cuba a 13-7 WILCO Conference win over Valley in a game played here Thursday night. The visitors opened the scoring in the first quarter as they racked up a touchdown on a 40-yard pass from Mowery to Phillips. They failed to add the point after touchdown. Valley took over the lead in the third quarter when Piatt crossed the goal line after a 70-yard run and Morse added the extra point. This advantage lasted until Thur- mans goal line dash as time was running out in the contest. Cuba now has a 3-0 conference standing, while Valley has two wins and one loss in loop play.

Valenzuela is aware what can happen in the Woodward. He was just moving up into the big time when he got the mount on Mister Gus in the 1956 Woodward. The great Nashua was the 1-3 favorite, the same odds they quote for Kelso in the iy4 -mile race Saturday. Valenzuela rode Mister Gus to a 2M>-length victory. Carry Back, who finished third behind Kelso in the 1961 Woodward, is scheduled to leave by air Sunday for his second straight engagement in the Prix do L'Arc dc Triomphc in Paris. Never Bend the only 3-year-old in the Woodward, was the juvenile champion last year, and is expected to set the early pace Saturday. He carries 120 pounds, against 126 for the others. Two weeks ago Never Bend set the pace in the United I Nations at Atlantic City, but finished second, followed by Carry Back. Willie Shoemaker, who won the 1958 Woodward with Clem over Round Table, the 4-5 favorite who ran fifth, pilots Never Bend in place of the suspended Manuel Ycaza. John Rotz, who beat Kelso with Cany Back in both the Metropolitan and Monmouth Park handicaps last season, rides the 1961 Kentucky Derby winner. mm TOP TEN By United Press International NATIONAL LEAGUE Player & Club G.

"We're sitting pretty, I think. I don't like to forecast in matches By JOE REtCIILER NEW YORK (AP)-Stan Musial, baseball's nearest thing to the perfect player, who always seemed to say and do the right things on and off the ball field, erred in one conception. The 42-year-old living legend of the St. Louis CardinaJs. who will retire as an active player next Sunday, has always maintained the pitchers will tell him when to quit. He was wrong. It was accumulated wear and tear rather than the pitchers that finally caught up with him. "I decided to retire because I no longer have 100 per cent concentration," Musial explained. Without that, there didn't seem to be any point in going on. When I was really in my prime. I could concentrate on every pitch. Every day, in every game, I could concentrate. This year I couldn't do it a« well. Mavbc it's partly from coming to the plate so many Says Boxing Still Run by Underworld . NEW YORK (UPI) — A charge by the former special counsel to the Kefauver investigating committee that boxing is still the plaything of the underworld may lead to congressional action and the creation of a federal fight commissioner or commission. Attorney John G. Bonomi of New York charged Thursday in a new documentary film that "many confederates and allies of Frankie Carbo still hold important positions in the boxing business." Senator Kenneth B. Keating of New York suggested in the same documentary that federal control might be the answer to the game's problems and ex-heavyweight champion Jack Dempsey declared: "Boxing must have national control if it is to survive and avoid being outlawed." The film was prepared by "Reader's Digest" magazine in conjunction with an article by Dempsey in the October issue entitled, "The Boxing Mess — And What To Do About It." The film was shown to sportswriters Thursday in Dempsey's Broadway restaurant. Bonomi said that Carbo and his associates dominated boxing from 1949 to 1961 and that many of them are still in the sport. He did not elaborate.

PRAIRIE ST. 1400 ON YOUR OIAI times. After more than 20 years, you've been up 10,000 or 11,000 times and it becomes hard to concentrate on every pitch. "It was no longer play. It had become work. I wanted to go out while still an asset. I didn't want to be a liability. I didn 't want to worry about next year...wondering whether I'd still be able to hit big league pitching." What will he miss the most? "The competition," Stan answered. "Putting on a uniform. I never tired of that. The thrill of playing...the thrill of winning. The public doesn't realize the feeling of exhilaration winning brings, nor the feeling of sadness in losing. The hardest thing for a professional player is learning to live with defeat, even though he knows defeat is inevitable." Musial has been National League batting champion seven .times, most valuable player three times, has a lifetime average of .333, and holds more than 50 league records. Last year he broke Ty Cobb's record for most total bases and this year shattered Babe Ruth's mark for most extra base hits. Which record is he proudest of? "Breaking H o n u s Wagner's i league record for most lifetime hits," he said. "To do anything at all, you've got to get your hits. It was a great thrill when I got my 3,341st hit off Ron Perranoski in Los Angeles last year." What advice would he give to youngsters? "Go into athletics while young. I don't mean 12 or 14 vears of age but eight or nine. That's when you begin developing timing and coordination. Don't fall into bad habits. Learn the fundamentals. Try to learn as much as you can. You can't learn too much."
