Critical of Action Spokesman for three others j ^g^. didn't, condemn Bells action—but j neither did they do handsprings as a result of it. Bell chose a House Antitrust subcommittee hearing as the scene of his announcement. Failure to recognize and bargain collectively with the players organization would be "against the best interest of the National Football League and the public," he said. Lawmakers Nettled The subcommittee is investigating football and other profession al team sports to determine whether they should be immune from federal antitrust laws. Past refusal of NFL club owners to accept the players' association had nettled several lawmakers, including Subcommittee Chairman Celler (D-NY), Rep. Keating (R NY) and Rep. Rodino (D-NJ). They commended Bell's decision. Creighton Miller, the ex-Notre Dame backfield star who is now attorney for the association, said he was "most gratified" as long as Bell was empowered to speak for the league No Prior Assent Bell told the subcommittee the NFL constitution gave him full authority to bestow recognition.

Sox Lose Ground Roy Sievers hit his fourth home run in four games to trigger a three-run sixth that beat the White Sox, who had .built a 4-0 lead on Larry Doby's first grand-slammer since 1953. It was Sievers' 28th homer at thi fear and his nth against the se*-ptitti«i him within reach of the major league record of 14 against one club set by Gehrig against Cleveland in 1936.

Favor Boyd Over Vaughn NEW YORK (^-Chicago's Bobby Boyd, making the comeback climb in the busy ; middleweight division, was favored to stretch his latest, victory strea.k to five tonight at the expense of Californian Willie Vaughn. It's their second meeting within three months. Boyd, a hard-hitting 23-year old, gained a disputed, split decision over rangy Willie in Chicago. The return 10- rouncler will be held at St. Nicholas Arena with the usual Friday night broadcast and telecast (NBC, 9 p.m., EST). The verdict over Vaughn was belting Bobby's third on the comeback. He scored his fourth over Rocky Castellani June 26. Boyd, who is in the ranking ten, will have to be in peak form to stay there.,. Vaughn, burned up at the narrow loss in Boyd's home town, has been going strong since. He outpointed Tiger Al Williams and then stopped 'Chebo Hernandez in seven, Boyd's record is 44-7-2, including 22 kayos. Vaughn, 24, and fighting out of Los Angeles, has a 33-15-4 men Basjlio.

But Hodges, the big Brooklyn first baseman, didn't appear overly thrilled about his 13th grand slam wallop that set a National League record and helped crush the last-place Chicago Cubs 12-3. Rogers Hornsby and Ralph Kiner held the previous mark of 12 senior circuit homers with the bases loaded. "I guess you'd call it something of a thrill," Hodges said. "But I got. a bigger thrill out of Hie 12th grand slam that tied the mark two weeks ago. That was the homer that tied the Cardinals in the last of the ninth and we eventually won 9-7.", •In fact, the Dodger handyman, who has spent 11 seasons with Brooklyn, didn't think his 380-foot smash off reliefer Dick Littlefield was going to land in the seats. "I know that it was a fast ball that zipped down the middle. And I caught it well. But I didn't think it would carry into the bleachers," he commented. I »*»++*' ! from da Id barton's ; KEYBOARD!

PHEASANT CALL: The Carroll,County Wildlife Conservation League plans to release 300 pheasants ori Carroll County farms on Sunday morning. "We are particularly interested in getting these birds placed where there is sufficient cover and water," Virgil Lhotka, president, said. The conservation officials have asked farmers who wish to stock ii l r pheasants'on their farms to con- j FlQ I DUT! tact either Lhotka or Wilbur! Pluckhahn, secretary, prior to Sunday morning. "The birds can be picked up at the Art Hulsing place at Rosell about 8 a.m. on Sunday by farm ers who have cover, and water, Lhotka said.
