Duke Snider's three- run homer with one away in the bottom of the ninth powered New York's last-place Mets over the Cards 3-2. In the other NL game, Denis Menke's single and Hank Aaron's 17th homer were key blows in Milwaukee's 9-5 decision over Pittsburgh. The Cincinnati Reds' phia was rained out. Drysdale, now 7-6, struck out nine, did not allow a walk and the lone Cub run was unearned. The Dodgers went into a 2-0'lead against Paul Toth in the fifth on the second of Willie Davis' three singles, his steal of second, an infield single by Drysdale and two infield outs. The Mets were stifled on two singles by rookie Ron Taylor through eight innings but chased him in the ninth on Frank Thomas' one-out single and Ron Hunt's walk. Southpaw Diomedes Olivo, 43, was summoned to face the left-handed swinging Snider, who tagged the reliever's 2-2 pitch for the game-winning homer. The Braves blew a four-Pin lead against the Pirates but took charge in the eighth when Tommy Aaron's sacrifice fly and Menke's single knocked in two runs for a 6-5 edge.

(AP)— "I wish I could find the guy who stole my putter," says Julius Boros. The big, swarthy North Carolinian, out in front by two strokes in the $52,000 Flint Open golf tournament thanks to an old, spare putter, indicated gratitude to the culprit. Someone swiped Boros' putter at the last Masters tournament. He has been hot with the spare one ever since. Boros fired a 6-under-par 66 Friday for the lead, dropping birdie putts of 35 and 25 feet among his 10 one-putt greens. The 43-year-old veteran seized the lead in the big field at Warwick Hills from Jerry Pittman, a Tulsan 17 years his junior. Pittman earlier had shot a 4- under-par 68 on the 7,280-yaro course. The meet, rained out Thursday when Tony Lema lost a 5-under- par 67 with all scores canceled, moved into its second round today with the pressure on Boros. Besides Pittman, others on Boros' heels were Al Mengert, left- hander Bob Charles and former U.S. Open champion Gene Littler, all tied with 3-under-par 69s. Lerna settled for a 71, tieing with 14 others. There was another jam-up at 70, including Dow Fin stcrwald, Bo Wininger and five others.

Western Fifth In NAIA Golf KANSAS CITY (AP)-Western Illinois University's golfing team managed a fifth place in the National Association fo Intercollegiate Athletics Golf Tournament which ended Friday. The team score was 1,212 strokes. Winner of the tourney was Eastern New Mexico University, with a 1,191. Both the 24-year-old Griffith, a New Yorker originally from the Virgin Islands, and the dancing Rodriguez, predicted a knockout j On the record, it seemed unlike ily. Neither man has ever been stopped. Each has beaten the other once. Griffith won a split decision before either was champion and each was seeking a shot at the late Benny (Kid) Paret, then the champion. Paret died of in- Liuries suffered in a fight with 'Griffith. Rodriguez, 25, won the title from Griffith with an unpopular 15-round decision in Los Angeles March 21. A majority of the boxing writers covering the fight scored for Griffith. The fight, Rodriguez' first defense, was scheduled to be nationally televised from Madison Square Garden starting at 9 p.m. EST.

Douglas MacArthur has disposed of the track and field feud that had threatened the U.S. team for the annual meet against Russia in Moscow in July. The general, obviously irked, told the U.S. Track and Field Federation Friday to let its athletes run in the National AAU championships at St. Louis June 21-22, and stop the quibbling. The five-star general was appointed by President Kennedy to get the warring groups in line until the 1964 Olympics. A few hours later, William Russell of Los Angeles, president of the USTFF, sent telegrams to the ;roups in the federation authorizing their athletes to compete. Russell was at Houston for the USTFF championships. It ended the USTFF boycott of the AAU meet, where the U.S team for the Russian meet and three others in Europe will be nicked.

Fishing is one of America's most popuiai participating sports, the American Medical Assn. points out. How true. Millions of men, women am children spend one or more dayf every summer sitting on the bank or floating about in a boat with the hope that a fish will take their bait. Unless you are the vigorous type who wades through racing rapids or rows hard for miles, lishing is mild exercise for most of us. It's one of the best forms of therapy available to get oul into the fresh air and sunshine, clear the cobwebs from the mind and recoup from a hard week at the office. Fishing is good for body and spirit, but unfortunately there are also some hazards. Most of them can be avoided, the Medical Assn. says. The most common fishing acci dent is catching a barbed hook in the flesh, usually a finger or tiand, but sometimes a leg or other part of the body. Lures and hooks left lying unprotected on a dock or in the bottom of a joat cause many of these accidents. Baiting a hook often leads :o an accident. Use Fishing Hat The wise fisherman guards against hook accidents by shield- ng the hook. One simple way to do this is to stick a small cork over the barb, Lures should be tored in the tackle box until needed, and returned promptly 0 the box when removed from he leader. The band of your r avorite fishing hat is, of course, 1 reasonable safe place to keep ures you intend to use later. 18, Smith 215. BOWL INN Friday 3-Man Team Branstetter 212, Corfiatis 204, 01. Fly or bait casters are responsible for many hook accidents to their fellow fishermen. Particularly dangerous are the sidewinders who cast with a side arm motion rather than overhead. Train yourself to look before each cast to make certain no one is in the way. This will also save lures' from snagging on trees anc bushes as you cast. In removing a hook from the fish, hold the fish firmly under the gills, so that its head can't flop or wiggle. A freshly caught fish is slippery and hard to hold. Get a firm grip before dislodging ths hook. This writer often carries a piece of cloth for wiping hands aftei baiting hooks. We find the cloth is also handy to use for grasping the fish with our hands, especially catfish that can fin you. Shan fins on other fish also can cause painful stings. Snip Off Barbs If, despite precautions, a hook becomes imbedded in your hand or finger, don't try to pull it out, the Medical Assn. says, Youi physician will snip off the shank and push it through, thus causing less further damage to torn flesh. The doctor will, if necessary, administer antibiotics and tetanus toxoid. Hook wounds often lead ;o infection unless treated by a physician. Fishing is fun. A fish hook through the hand can spoil the day. With care, it can be avoided the Medical Assn. concluded. Unfortunately, it isn't always possible to be anywhere near or ;asy to find a physician to remove looks. For this reason, many ang- lefscarry snipper pliers to cut off [he barbs of hooks impedded in 'lesh or clothing. We recall on one occasion when an angler in our group needed a doctor we had to drive about 15 miles to find one. On another oc- cation, we had to drive 80 miles. A little precaution and safety measures may have prevented the accidents that also ruined our ishing trips. Six Milers Break Four Minute Mark COMPTON, Calif. (AP) — Six mile runners rushed across the Compton Invitational finish line in less than four minutes Friday night, a record for mass annihilia- tion of this once fabled time, and the procession was led by Peter Snell of New Zealand. His time was 3 minutes, 55 seconds, six-tenths of a second off his world record. Brian Sternberg, of Washington, used his fiber glass pole to raise the rapidly rising world pole vaulting standard t o 16 feet 8 inches, bettering his own pending mark of 16-7 set two weeks ago at Modesto, Calif. Ulis Williams of Arizona State University bettered the listed world 440-yard dash record in 45.6, beating Adolph Plummer of the University of New Mexico, who owns a pending world mark of 44.9. Plummor's losing time against Ulis was also 45.6. Snell fooled around in eighth place, then sixth, for the first half mile, and then in the final 100 yards ate up the opposition. It was no contest at the finish. Trailing in order behind the Olympic champion were: i Medora Sets Khoury Sked MEDORA — The schedule of the Shipman-Medora Khoury League has been completed and is us follows: The 9 to 11 uge group under the management of Dale Prather will play each game at 6 p.m. Monday, June 10, Willson- ville at Medora; Monday, June 17, Gillespie No. 1 at Medora; Monday, June 24, Gillespie No. 2 at Medora; Monday, July 1, Medora at Gillespie No. 3; Monday, July 8, Medora at Mt.
