ALTON EVENING TELEGRAPtt MONDAY, JULY 1,1963 Great Efforts BALTIMORE (AP)—Robin Rob fcfts added another fantastic chap tef to ah already fabulous base ball career Sunday.

The 36-year-old Roberts allowet Only eight hits while hurling 13 1 innings in 89-degree weather made doubly scorching by a soak ing humidity of 72 per Cent, , But the inability of his teammates to hit in the clutch gave Kaflsas City a 3-1 decision in 14 Innings. Worse yet, Roberts wasn't in the game when the Athletics pushed across the winning runs on a two-out single by Doc Edwards off reliever Dick Hall. Baltimore Manager Billy Hitchcock took Roberts out after Jerry Lumpe opened the 14th inning with a single and moved to sec- ••ond on a sacrifice. Prior to that, Roberts had given Up only two hits during the last seven innings. After Ken Harrelson doubled to open the 10th, he retired 12 batters in a row. Meanwhile, the Orioles left 13 runners stranded—seven of them In scoring position. Roberts was impassive as usual but he didn't linger long after the game. After Harold (Bill) Spute of Hamburg, N.Y., shot a two-under • par 69 during a physical education class he was invited to join the Michigan State golf team this spring.

Bobber Fishing Using a bobber in fishing may be old fashioned but it still is one of the best ways to catch fish, according to the outdoor writer for the Klekhaefer Corp., Fond du Lac, Wis. It pays to carry them in your tackle box. Traditional Symbol Some fishermen like to think they've outgrown the bobber. But this traditional symbol of barefoot lads has as much significance in the tackle boxes of experts as it does hitched to the cane pole of a beginner, say the fishing authorities. They point out that a bobber can be extremely valuable to even the most proficient caster unde certain conditions. Though It's simple, Inexpensive accessoryj extends the versatility of spinnin and casting rigs when conven Unal techniques prove unequal t the task at hand. A small transparent float ca be used to convert a spinning ri for fly casting when fish are rls ing to the surface. Although not a satisfactory as a flyrod, this mod fled outfit get you back into bus iness during the feverish actio of a "hatch." Correct Depth When drift fishing over wee beds the Use of a bobber allow you to keep your bait or llgh lure at the proper depth wlthou continually handing up. It is also handy for slow trol ing in shallow waters. You ca fish with a long line, far bac from any disturbance the boa makes. And it prevents the lur from sinking too deeply into th snags. For many situations, repeat ve eran anglers, the bobber is indis^ pensible. It definitely belong among the array of equipmen possessby by every angler. Instead of thinking you've ou grown it, use it. Bobbers hav often saved the day. Ken Rosewall New Champ Among Proi FOREST HILLS, N.Y. (AP)— Look at the record and it's ob vious why Ken Rosewall reign as the king of pro tennis.

But newspaper commentators pointing to similarities with drug ging on British tracks, were in clined to suspect that the colt go t to save the handbooks a massive beating. The French-owned Relko, thi Ll-8 favorite, looked fine in thi aaddock and appeared a virtua certainty to repeat his eas> Ipsom Derby success. Yves St. Martin, champion French jockey who was to havi •idden Relko, said the horse be gan to move badly on the way to ;he starting gate. "Relko was going perfectly un :il we reached the start" St. Mar :in said. "Then suddenly he seizec up. He could hardly even walk and certainly would not even have rotted. I knew it was out of the question for him to run." The announcement that Relko was withdrawn came only sec onds before the race was off.
