Nearly Frustrated Alton City Clerk Paul Price and /is Means, McPherson A v e., went fishing recently to Horseshoe Lake in Southern Illinois and had to spend 1V Z days chasing outboard mechanics instead of fish in order to get their motor to run. In all they pursued five mechanics over a wide area who had just left for distant parts shortly before they arrived. "But after all the delay, the last mechnic discovered that the air and gasoline hoses had been reversed," Price said. "We finally got to fishing and did so only in mornings and evenings. The Wuegiil were biting good and we found the crappie were small. "The bass were hitting in the heavy deep moss," he continued. "We cast with the Webbfoot lure designed and made by Louis Jun of Alton. We got two strikes each in the moss from fish that you normally only read about. It was a tremendous thrill but due to the weight and accumulative mass of the moss in retrieving, we lost all the bass. Anyway (he fish might have swamped our boat."

The defeat knocked the Dodgers out of first place in the National League and boosted the Cubs to within three games of St. Louis and San Francisco, who share the lead. Hobble's only victories this season have been in Dodger Stadium. "This place is a pitcher's paradise," he said after the game. "You can make mistakes here and get by, whereas mistakes in Wrigley Field in Chicago can be mighty costly for a pitcher." The Cubs gave Hobbie good hitting support Friday night.

Mixing up his pitches superbly 'hile waging his one-man battle rom the mound, Brown made one mistake in seven innings — Tom Jailer's homer in the second in- ing. Not another Giant reached ase before Brown left for a inch hitter after seven innings. It was Brown's second consecu- ive outstanding effort against the efending champions. The former American League hurlcr held the iants to one hit in 61-3 innings f relief only five days ago while vinning his first game in the Na- onal League.

The only Dodger run came in the sixth inning when pickoff play went awry, allowing Willie Davis to streak home from third. Both of Hobble's victories in seven decisions have been against the Dodgers. Bob Miller, 4-3, was the loser. Moving into a tie with oldtimer Jim Galvin for seventh place on the alltime shutout list, Spahn got all the runs he needed from Tommie Aaron's bat in winning his ninth against three losses. Aaron drove in the Braves runs with a sacrifice fly and a two-run double off the Phillies outstanding rookie Ray Gulp. Gulp, 8-4 allowed only two hits in the seven innings he worked. Snider's two-run homer off Bob Purkey, 1-4, got the Mets away winging and they were never headed in winning for the first times in 12 games at Cincinnati.
