CANDLESTICK CAPERS An irate fan looks down from the top of the Giants' dugout as an equally irate Orlando Cepeda approaches. Cepcda had been called out.on strikes to end the seventh inning in game Saturday with Milwaukee at Candlestick Parti. Cepeda protested the call and was joined by manager Bill Rigney who was thumbed from the game by plate umpire Chris Pole- koudas. The spectator, Claude Rice, who shouted his own opinion of the call from his unauthorized perch, was removed by park officers. Milwaukee won, 9 to 5. (AP Wirephoto.)

(Cleveland on Top Despite Idleness By JACK HAND Amoriated Press Sp*rts Writer Cleveland took over first place In the American League Sunday by simply sitting In the clubhouse waiting for it to stop raining. Baltimore dropped out of the top spot after losing two to Kansas City, 6-1 and 5-3 In 10 innings. This put the Indians half a game up although the opener of their scheduled double-header at New York was called in the first inning when the rains started. Detroit edged into fourth place by splitting two at Washington, winning 12-5 after losing the first game 8-3. Jim Lemon hit three homers for the Senators.

Old Archie Calls Paul Fender 4 Little Pipsqueak' LOS ANGELES (AP)-Imagine, says Ol' Archie Moore, that little pipsqueak Paul Perkier challenging me. "I am startled by Fender's audacity," saW .the venerable monarch of the 175-pounders, reflecting on the Boston Irishman's curious ambition to fight Moore for the lightheavyweight title. "For me to meet a man like that and face my conscience, I wou'd have to agree to let him carry a pistol," ageless Archie Littler Wins Oklahoma Title OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) -Gene Littler headed for the National Open Golf Tournament today full of confidence after his sensational victory in the $30,000 Oklahoma City Open tourney Sunday. The Californian shot the 6,440- yard Twin Hills Country Club course in a final round of 68. It gave him a 72-hole total of 273 and a pay check of J4.300. But Littler's victory was hard earned. He had to birdie the. final three holes for the triumph, his first since the Milwaukee Open in August 1959. He ran down a 20- foot putt on the 18th hole to sink Art Wall Jr., who finished second at 274. Littler had a two-stroke lead over Wall going into the final round. Both got on the last green in good shape and Wall left himself two feet from the hole after his first putt. He ran it down and then watched Littler 'smooth stroke his final shot to the cup — a right breaker that dropped perfectly after taking a 6-inch turn. Arnold Palmer, the defending champion and favorite here, finished third at 276 after a final round 67 and a third-round 75 which killed his chances. told columnist Melvin Durslag of the Los Angeles Examiner. 'Tender is less than just plain nuthin'," Archie said, "he is sub- nuthin'." Moore said Pender beat Sugar Ray Robinson Friday for the New York-Massachusetts version of the middleweight title simply by out- clinching the Sugar Man. "This guy wrestled Robinson at least two minutes a round," Archie said. And armed or otherwise, Pender wouldn't get away with that against him, Archie said. "I spent 20 years researching a punch for just this type of opponent," Archie said. "I call it Archie Moore's wrestle-o-ree - nie'." "Most punches are thrown straight, or are brought up. The wrestle-o-reenie is brought down. Travels but eight inches. It is angled at 90 degrees and bears 500 pounds of pressure per square inch." "When I bring this punch down, the heels of the other man go up," smiled Moore. Archie, a 206Va-pound tower of jello in his last bout, said he'll have a new look when he meets Eric Scho«ppner for the 175- pound title next month. Archie gave this reason why he picked up the extra blubber: "I was just trying to prove that fat men have their place in the world, too." Habaneck, Hall Win Uniwah Monthly Shoot In the monthly handicap shoot Sunday at Uniwah Archery Club George Habaneck won first place in the men's division with a 580 score. In second place was Dave Hall with 574 and third was Don Kiel with 567. Margie Hall won the women's division with 492. Cleveland Baltimore New York Detroit Chicago Washington Kansas City Boston W. L.

LOUIS (AP)-The St. Louis Cardinals, disgraced 15-3 in the first game of a doubleheader, managed to pick up the pieces and take the second 5-2 Sunday.

The Cardinals defeated old teammate Wilmer Mizell. Broglio permitted 10 hits but was scored on only in the fifth.

MUSIAL'jS FANS Reports have Stan Musial ready to hang up his spikes and retire from the game as a result of the youth movement by the St. Louis Cardinals. Musial still rates as the biggest crowd pleaser the Cards have; Whenever Musial comes to' the plate to pinch hit, the fans give him the biggest hand of the game and even if he pops out, the fans still applaud. It may be the end of an era for Musial, but the fans still remember him and he is still the biggest draw the Cards have. tory and two more in second game 12-5 defeat.
