Calif., 19B1). Quite obviously, California athletes have dominated this meet. Of thirlS events which are open to athletes outside this state, the California lads either hold or share the top time, height or distance In 11 events. Ideal weather conditions, conducive to consistently peak performances, prevail year-around here, making Hie California boys ranked tops In the country when It come* to track performance*. The weatherman promises clear skies and warn* weather for the splkefest. L a «t year It rained. Probably the most talked-about athlete entered in the meet is Dennis Carr of Whittler. He has been timed In 1:49.2 in the 880, but Is concentrating on the mile, his favorite event. He'll be bunched in a good mile field where the slowest time is 4:22.2. Today many of the athletes arc at Disneyland as part of the planned entertainment for the boys and coaches. Tonight they'll be honored guests at a banquet.

The fourth-place Reds gained one-half game on the three National League leaders, the St. Louis Cardinals, San Francisco Giants and Los Angeles Dodgers, who all were idle.

It all took place at the Mayor's Charily game Thursday night when Casey Stengel led his New Vork Mets across the Harlem River to do battle with the world champion Yankees for HIP benefit of New York's sandlot baseball program. Cards Sign John Arnone For Bonus ST. LOUIS (AP)-The Baseball Cardinals announced Thursday the signings of right-handed pitcher Donald Davis and catcher Mikp Huntc'i. Davis is from Belleville, 111., and for two yeur.s averaged 15 ?ame while playing strikeouts a for Bellovillc High School. Hunter was a IG-lcttor man at Alton, 111., High School and played baseball and lootball at the University of Missouri. Both will report to Brunswick, Ga., of the Georgia - Florida League. Tiie Cardinals also signed outfielder Robert John Arnone of St. John's College, New York, for a modest bonus and assigned the youiiK switch-hitter to their Brunswick farm team in the Georgia- Florida League. Arnonr-, 5-feti-10 J /fc and 190 pounds, hit .356 for St. John's as ^ center fielder last season. He reports to Brunswick Friday. They howled and yelled and stamped their feet. They chanted and cheered and beat each other on the head with programs. They tossed some firecrackers and tried lo swipe the pennant and some of them got collared by the cops. And when it was all over, the Mets- haughtily stalked out of the stadium with a 6-2 victory over the surprised, chagrined Yankees, who had to leave by a back exit. "Don't go out through the front," Yankee equipment man Pete Previte told them in the dressing room afterward. "They're crazy out there. The cops are all inside the ball park trying to clear the field. Go out the back way." The police at that time, imrnedi atcly after the game, had own problems. They were trying to dear thousands of shouting, milling fans from the grounds. A quick dash got stadium ushers to the centerfield flagpole JIIM before a band of the Breed who were intent on hauling down Ihc Yankees' world champions pennant. Piorsall was upsel enough tha' the bat slipped out of his hands while he was batting in the third inning. It sailed into the box seats along third base and cracked a man in the ribs. He is Deputy Police Commissioner William L. Howe. No great damage done. The ribs were taped and Jimmy got his bat back. He got it back in time to single to right and launch a among National League pitchers, will try their sizzling bats against one of the best—Los Angeles' Sandy Koufax tonight at Busch Stadium. The Cardinals were idle Thursday. The Cardinals, whose bats have been the loudest noise in the tight National League pennant race, will send Bob Gibson (5-3) to the mound. There's an axiom in baseball circles that good pitching always will stop good hitting and the Cardinals are hoping to dispel this view. Koufax, who has a no-hitter among six shutouts this season, sports a 10-6 mark. The Cardinals have battered Philadelphia, Pittburgh and New York pitching during their current home stand. The Redbirds are sporting a .344 team average during this latest home series. One of the main reasons for the Cardinal upsurge said Manager Johnny Keane is the batting of two fellows at the bottom of the batting order, catcher Tim McCarver and second baseman Julian Javier. McCarver is batting at a .500 clip and the talented Javier is hitting .414 in the current home series. "If we can just score runs at the right time" Keane said, "in the right games, we'll be all right. You can't winn 10-4 one night and then lose 2-1 the next."

Acquired from Cleveland for $40,000, the right-hander, 28, has turned into one of the American League's top firemen since lie altered his stride toward the plate early in the season. Dailey's sharp relief pitching dropped the White Sox two games back of the first-place New York Yankees, who edged last-place Washington 5-4 on Bobby Richardson's two-run double in the ninth inning and ran their winning streak to seven games. Boston added to Detroit's troubles 8-3, with homers by Dick Stuart and Chuck Schilling sending the Tigers down to their 10th straight setback. Cleveland rode Max Alvis' grand slam homer to an 11-8 victory over Baltimore. Kansas City and the Los Angeles Angels were not scheduled. Richardson drilled a Jim Coates pitch to right for the runs that made it eight losses in a row for the Senators. Coates, 2-4, took the loss with Marshall Bridges, 2-0, the winner in relief. Yogi Berra relinquished his coaching duties for New York, donned his catching gear and hit a two-run homer. Stuart's 17th homer, driving in his 43rd run, ignited a five-run Red Sox rally in the fourth inning capped by a two-run double by pitcher Arnold Earley and Schilling's homer. Earley, 3-2, got the victory, while Jim Bunning, 4-7, was tagged with the loss and a $50 fine by Umpire Hank Soar when he hit Roman Mejias with a pitch after Schilling connected. The Indians came from behind with six runs in the seventh innin? to beat the Orioles. Jerry Kindall's two-run single tied the score, then Alvis put it out of reach.
