So, the glamour gal rides on the shoulders of Dick Pope Jr., at Cypress Gardens, Fa., with Peg O'Neil making it a ski-some threesome just for the frothy foam of It. Roberts Has New Problem MILWAUKEE WV-The Phillies' Robin Roberts, bogged down in another losing season, denies quietly but emphatically the oft- heard rumors that his fast ball is a thing of-the past. The long-time ace of the Phils' pitching staff just as emphatically declares he doesn't plan to add so-called "junk" pitches to a repertoire that now includes the standard fast ball, curve and changeup. Drifting Roberts, one of baseball's greatest right-handers, hasn't won a game in weeks. He is drifting alqng, trying to dispel doubt in his own ability, with a won-lost record of 6-13 snd an earned run average of 4.77 He leads National League pitchers in pitching "gopher" balls with 28. Roberts admitted Wednesday he has heard many different versions of "what's wrong with Roberts" from many different sources.

The Audubon ace struck out 12 Churdan batters and walked only two. His most serious trouble came In the eighth inning when Paul Trost got on base via a fielder's choice and went to third on Jim Reagan's double. Audubon's victory tightened up the standings in the league and left both the winrers and Churdan just three games back of Coon Rapids. Both the first and second place clubs will be in action on Thursday against the ^il-enders. Car roll will be host to last place Breda in an 8:15 p.m. game at Merchants Park and Coon Rapids will entertain Manning. Face Mahnke Tonight The Carroll team will face Breda's new pitching ace, Roger Mahnke, for the first time this season. The question of Carroll's startinghurler probably won't be decided until shortly before game time. With a date at Coon Rapjds on Sunday, the Carroll choice narrows down to Don Burgess and Frank Beck since Rollie Niehaus came up with a kink in his right arm during the exhibition with the Ail-American Girls on Tuesday. Coon Rapids is expected to lead against Manning with Elmer Prescott and hold Jerry Ibach in readiness for the crucial contest with the Carroll challengers on Sunday night. | Scott Wins 5th When Scott recorded his shut- I out over Churdan, it marked the | fifth win in seven decisions for the i Audubon hurler. He was aided | and abetted by the hitting of Cloy ! Kneeskern and Marvin Miller, j Kneeskern accounted for three runs-batted-in with a single, double and triple. Miller had a perfect night with three singles and two walks in five trips. In the first inning Miller singled and Lewer walked. Kneeskern un; loaded a triple and Audubon was ! out in front by two Then Charles • Schwab singled to send Kneeskern across the plate: Single Tallies Audubon tallied again in the fifth when Kneeskern singled and an outfield error allowed him to go to third from where he scored on Schwab's second single. In the eighth Miller walked with one away. He went to second on a ground-out and scored on Kneeskern's double. Don Wallace picked up two of the five hits allowed by Scott as he collected a pair of singles. Churdan's only extra-base blow was Reagan's double in the eighth.

HBAI »t PretrJdeut DENISON — The & u e m p e r Knights knocked Denison out of the three-way deadlock for the top j spot in the summer high school baseball league with a 3-2 victory here Wednesday night.

Onken (4) and Bock Steinkamp and Kruse Torgy Finds Steady Diet Brings Hits •NEW' YORK w - Earl (Specs) Torgeson, who appeared to be making just another stop on his sojourn t h r 6 u g h the major leagues, apparently has found a home in Chicago. The veteran first baseman, tabbed as "all washed up" by Boston and Philadelphia in the National League, and Detroit in the American, has been enjoying a new lease on life since joining the White Sox six weeks ago. Timely Hlting Never a .300 hitter before, in 10 previous seasons, he had not only been batting well over that mark with the Sox, but his hitting has been timely and run-productive. His fielding, always smooth and finished, has been as slick as ever despite his 33 years. Torgy was highly instrumental in Chicago's 7-2 victory over New York Wednesday. He singled twice, drew two walks, scored twice, stole a base and drove, in a run. « Steady Playing '"It's the steady playing diet," explained the 6-3 F 10 r i d i a n. "That's the perfect tonic for a ballplayer. Nobody, I don't care who he is, can do justice to himself sitting on the bench and seeing action only once in a while. Baseball is my business and I'm not going to make any money not playing. Lopez (Manager Al Lopez) has given me the opportunity and I'm just doing my best to make the most of it." Since Chicago acquired h i m from Detroit in a trade for Dave Philley June 13, Torgeson has been hitting at .319 clip. His 29 hits have driven in 16 runs.

Grange and a small platoon of latter-day stars were called to give Congress their opinion of pro football's operations. The House Antitrust subcommittee is investigating the legal status of pro sports. Grange, the old Galloping trhost, and his teammates atnhe witness table said in advance of the subcommittee session they had no serious quarrel with NFL methods. "I think it's the best system worked out yet." Grange told newsmen. The ex-Illinois and Chicago Bears back, reputedly one of pro football's highest paid, performers, said 'conditions are so good he'd "like to be playing today." No Complaints Grange added that "in all my yeas in pro football I have never heard any complaints about the reserve clause." That provision gives each club a second-year option on 1 a player with every contract he signs. Grange, heavier than in his playing days but still unmistakably the athlete, is now an insurance broker and TV football " commentator. The Supreme Court has held football subject to, but baseball immune from, federal antitrust laws. The subcommittee headed by Rep. Ceiler (D NY) is conducting hearings to determifie whether all team enterprises should be •treated alike—wholly exempt or covered, or covered except for non-commercial practices.
