TWELVE ALTON EVENING TELEGRAPH SATURDAY, JUNE 1, Front - Runners Lose, NL Race Tightens B.v JIM HArKI.KMAV Associated Press S|mrts Writer Stan Musial has batted in 1.921 runs. And No. 1.921 might rank as tho oddest of The Man's career. Musial Rot it Friday nieht with an infield pop up that went for an out but produced a sweet victory for St. Louis' fnsl-rlimbing Cardi nals. Curt Hood scored on the weird play, giving the Cards a 6-5 triumph over front-running San Francisco that boosted them into second place in the Nationa Colts beat Milwaukee 3-2 with twoi unearned runs behind Ken John- i came up in the last o: the ninth inning with the bases Jecrlpd and none out, and the game tied at 5-5. He hit the pop up and was declared out under the infield fly rule since the umpire judged (lie ball could be rnught by an infieider, although it 'ell among four Giants. The infield fly rule allows runners to advance at their own risk and Curt Flood took the chance that the ball might be caught and dashed home with the Cards' winning run. The Cards won their fourth straight and moved to within two lengths of the Giants. C'.ncinnali dropped Los Angeles to third, one-half game behind St. Louis, by clipping the Dodgers 7-4. Also in the NL — Don Sf-h wall's four-hit pitching and Jerry Lynch's two-run homer carried Pittsburgh over the New York Mets 2-0; air-tight relief work by Lindy McDaniel preserved the Son's four-hitter. Yadn Pinson. Boh Skinner, Leo; Cardenas and Don Pavletichj shared hattinc honors for the Reds | as right-hander Jim Maloney won his seventh against two losses. Pinson hoiTiered and singled, Skinner got three hits, Cardenas knocked in two runs with singles, and Pavletich poked a bases-loaded single in the three-run fifth inning that gave the Reds a 6-3 lead. Schwall made his record 3-2 and posted his second shutout, allowing the Mets only four singles. Carl Willey checked the Pirates on two hits before Lynch rapped his homer in the seventh following a walk to Bill Mazeroski. McDaniel replaced winner Bob Suhl with the bases full and one out in the eighth inning of the Cubs-Phillies srjueaker, stopped hat threat cold, and blanked the Phils in the ninth. Lou Brock's double in the third and Ron San:o's single in the fourth drove in he Cub runs off Chris Short. The Colts netted only two singles against Bob Shaw and were leld hitless by Milwaukee relievers Tony Cloninger and Ron p iche. but edged the Braves with he two unearned runs. Shaw's er- •or helped Houston to a run in he first and the Colts made it 3-0 n the fourth on a two-run single by John Bateman. Hank Aaron belted his 16th hom- r in the sixth after a single by Chicago Cubs' 2-1 Philadelphia, and victory over the Houston CHICAGO (AP) — The Chicago White Sox are keeping their fingers crossed so far as pitcher John Buzhardt is concerned. Buzhardt, always a fast starter, notched his fifth victory against two Josses Friday night in twirling the Sox to a 6-0 victory over Boston on a yield of three hits. It was his second shutout of the eason and the eighth by White Sox pitchers this year. Buzhardt, who has seen service vith the Chicago Cubs and the Philadelphia Phils, usually starts 'ast and then fades as the season vears en "There's no reason for this kind of record," says Manager Al Lopez. ''He's a strong pitcher with ;ood stuff so long as he keeps he ball low. Maybe this will be Lee Maye, accounting for Milwaukee's run production. Outdoors With Harold Brand Marathon Races Lowell Montgomery of asked when the next marathon boat race is scheduled from St. Louis to New Orleans. Enthusiasm in the race has decreased in recent year for a number of reasons. There is a lack of sponsors because it takes substantial prizes to attract a good field of competition. The logistics of re-fueling and other problems including cost are also factors that reduce the field of entries. Conditions of the water at the time of a race are also unpredictable. These are some of the reasons that various sponsors and race drivers have told us. The last we heard of a marathon was only on southern stretches of the Mississippi. There is a Nationa] Outboard Sanctioned race each year of about 100 to 125 miles and another of about 200 to 300 miles from New Orleans upstream to a. southern city. Drivers interested in marathon and other races may write to the National Outboard Assn, 707 Market St., Knoxville, Tenn. The Assn. publishes a pamphlet monthly listing coming racing events. Boat Registration Numbers Harry S. Clark, Hardin, sent us a copy of a letter he wrote to the Coast Guard Commandant in l\Vashington telling about unfair D°w I treatment he received from Coast MINOR LEAGUES OLIN HORSE WINS Heavily favored Noblesse, owned by Mrs. John M.

In short, Clark was boating on Alton Lake early in May and voluntarily stopped to allow the Alton Lake Mobile Boarding team to inspect his boat. Clark had not been signalled to top. The boat ahead of him had >een stopped for inspection and Clark waited until the Coast Juard team finished so they could :heck his boat. The previous two seasons, the llinois State Conservation Department boat had inspected Clark's joat and said everything was in good order, including the regis- ration numbers on the boat's )oy. Yet the Coast Guard team measured the decal-type letters vhich are the legally required hree-inches tall including the >order, and found the inside let- ers two and 13/16 inches high. Threatened With Fine That evening Clark painted the gold portion of his boat numbe r s black and even made them V4-inch taller, and then complied with the Violation Report by writing to the Commander in St. Louis telling about correcting the numbers. Apparently his letter was ignored because a few weeks later he received an unpleasant warning letter threatening him with a $50 fine if he didn't comply with regulations. We believe that somewhere along the line public relations about the numbers between authorities and the public could be improved. We have had some confusion over numbers on our boat also. We quickly bought, decal type numbers when the law went into effect a few years ago. The Illinois Lake Patrol nearly gave us a summons because the three inch numbers were barely legible at 50 yards. We quickly painted them ove r too Later, we had the numbers repainted by a sign painter and they passed inspection for two years. This spring the Coasi Guard Patrol stopped us anc warned us that the letters were not spaced properly. More Spacing The point in question was thai there wasn't enough 'com be tween the alphabet character.' and. the numerals. Our boat is now in the process of being painted and we will again at tempt to comply by having a least I'/a spaces between the alphabe! ..rid numerals. There is a big difference between persons who attempt to comply such as Clark and this writer and persons who are indifferent o r even hostile. The Coast Guard office in St. Louis could possibly send out a more pleasant letter than the one Clark received. We know the Coast Guard isn't as interested in collecting fines as in enforcing regulations, Western Tied For Third in NAIA Tourney SIOUX FALLS, S.D. (AP) — Western Illinois University, with points, was in a three-way tie for fifth place following the opening Friday of the 12th annual National Association of Intercollegiate Athletics Track and Field Championships. Western was tied with Texas Southern and Omaha. Leading with 12 points was Maryland SUite. In the finals of the three-mile run, Phil Lorenc of Western took fourth place.

(AP>— Excellent putting had veteran Marilynn Smith in front by one stroke as the $8,000 Babe Zaharias Open moved into its second round today. Miss Smith shot a 2-under-par 71 over the 6,219-yard Beaumont Country Club course Friday to grab the first round lead from favorite Mickey Wright and two others, Jo Ann Winter and Betsy Rawls. Miss Wright had a 72, failing to lead the tournament in quest of her fourth triumph in :>. row be- causs of tree trouble. She pulled a 4 wood shot into the woods on 14 and hit a tree on 15 to mar what otherwise was a fine round. Miss Smith sank 9 and 6-foot birdie putts and chipped in from 30 ieet out for another. Her only trouble came on No. 8 where she missed a 2-foot putt for a bogey. Clyde Cawley; a sophomore from Sharon, Mass., is the only Syracuse University golfer who comes from outside New York state.

Last year he had an 8-12 record, marking his best season since breaking into the majors in 1958. Buzhardt had no trouble against Boston. His teammates gave him a 5-0 lead In the first three Innings and backed him with a 12- hit attack. Nelson Fox, Pete Ward and Charlie Maxwell had three hits each. The White Sox will send Joe Horlen (3-0) against Boston and Morehead (3-3) today. The Chicago Cubs, getting top- 1 grade relief pitching from Llndy 'McDaniel, defeated Philadelphia, 2-1 Friday night. McDaniel came in with the. bases loaded in the retired two Bob Buhl's eighth inning and men to preserve fourth victory in eight decisions. Lou Brock, who led the Cubs Light-Heavy Crown On Line Tonight LAS VEGAS, Nev. (AP)—The world light heavyweight crown will be on the line tonight and champion Harold Johnson is a solid favorite to retain it in a 15- round fight with Willie Pastrano. The nationally televised engagement—ABC at 10 p.m., EOT—is set for the Las Vegas Convention Center. Among the 5,500 patrons on hand will be heavyweight champion Sonny Listen, whose title Johnson might seek if he gets by the fast, fancy tactics of Willie the Wisp, from North Miami Beach, Fla. Also slated to be at ringside is Mauro Mina of Peru, the No. 1 contender in the 175-pound divi- sion. The Peruvian was offered a shot at Johnson but bowed out, claiming an arm injury. Johnson, from Philadelphia, at 34 is still a powerful puncher, though admittedly not as fast with his hands as in younger years. He has slopped 32 opponents in his career of 81 matches and has not lost a bout since 1955. Pastrano, 28, noted for his hit- and-run style, after 13 years of ring warfare is getting his first crack at a world championship. He started boxing in his native New Orleans and has had his share of success and disappointment. More important to him, and a problem for Johnson, Pastrano has never been knocked off his feet in 83 engagements. with three hits, doubled home a run in the third Inning and a double by Billy Williams and Ron Sfinto's single accounted for what proved to be the winning run in the fourth. The Cubs will send Dick Ellsworth (6-3) against John Boozer (0-0) today. Lewis College Opens NAIA Baseball Meet KANSAS CITY (AP) - California Western of San Diego and Lewis College of Lockport, 111., will open the annual National Association of Intercollegiate Athletics Baseball Tournament next Monday at St. Joseph, Mn.

(AP)—The St. Louis Cardinals announced Friday they had signed Mississippi State pitching ace Frank Montgomery to a contract for a "modest'bo- nus." The 21-year-old lefthander will join the Redbirds' Billings, Mont, farm club in the Class A Pioneer League.

Victory-starved is no cliche for 39-year-old Hawkins, handsome, prematurely grey pro from El Paso, Tex., who has won one tournament—the 1056 Oklahoma Sity Open—since he began the PGA circuit in 1950. Hawkins' 7-under-par 04 Friday led a wholesale massacre of Speedway's 35-36—71 par in the opening round of the 72-hole quest for the $10,000 top money, (ourth largest winning swag of the seiison. In all, 52 of the 149 starting pros bettered par and 22 matched it, giving every indication that it ivill take par of 142 or better for 3fi holes to survive the halfway cut to 75 and ties for the last two rounds. The par-riddling of the fi,4(i7- yrird, flat course—including n 66 by runner-up Sam Carmichae!, 23, Mavtinsville, Ind., making his first pro tour—was accomplished with such golden boys as Jack Nicklaus, Arnold Plamer, Gary Plryer, Doug Sanders and defending Speedway champion Billy Casper missing from the field. A quartet, three strokes off (he pace with 67s, included Puerto Hican Juan (Chi Chi) Rodriquex, Bill Collins, Claude King and Miller Barber. Eight players were knotted at 68, including such familiar names as Tommy Bolt, Julius Boros, Dow Finsterwald and Don January. Americans Picked to Win British Title By TOM REEDY ST. ANDREWS, Scotland (AP) —American Walker Cupper Ed Updegraff warned the field of 250 of the world's best amateur golfers today that defending champion Richard Davics is the man to beat in next week's British championship. "He is the most underrated golfer on this course at the moment," the Tucson, Ariz., doctor said. Updegraff played seven rounds here this week in a par-equaling average of 72 shots and has attracted considerable attention. But he contended that his 32-year-old teammate from Pasadena, Calif., is the real target for the ambitious. Davies won at Hoy lake last year, but somehow left the impression that he was less than a classic stylist. "He's a far better player now," Updegraff said. "He has changed his grip and he is a hell of a putter." Davies and Updegraff, plus six other members of the U.S. Walker Cup team which beat the British last week at Turnberry, are an across-the-board group of favorites to (rapture the British amateur. The big field got its last practice dash at the 6,936-yard, par-72 Old Course today. It is closed by tradition on Sundays. The marathon six-day championship opens Monday morning with U.S. amateur king Labron Harris of Stillwater, Okla., teeing off against Paul Coste, an American who is principal of the U.S. Air'Force school at Chateauroux, France. Albie Pearson of the Los Angeles Angels made his 500th American League hit this spring. It came against knuckleballer Hoyt Wilhelm.
