Fintey,' owner of the Kansas City club, had expressed interest at an executive session on the eve of the All-Star game In moving his Athletics to Oakland, Calif. Cronin, however, emphasized thai Finley had miide "no formal request/' to move .the A's franchise. It Would need at least eight atlinmative ballots of the 10 own ors to switch the franchise. The Associated Press had learned exclusively Monday that Finley, rebuffed a year ago in his effort to move the A's to Dallas, was seeking a new home in California. The Oakland City Council and the Alameda County Board of Supervisors recently approved Issuing $25 million in revenue bonds to build a 48,500-seat all-purpose stadium in Oakland. The park, by surprise. i Several American League tcsvfi- ers, said privately a Kansas City to Oakland move would be weU corned since it would create a second Pacific Coast team to match the Los. Angeles Angels, simplify travel arrangements, reduce costs for everyone and cre- ate a strong ihtra-state rivalry. The A's, mired in the second division of the American League for the eight years they've been in Kansas City, are troubled with skidding attendance despite the promotional efforts of the fiery Finley, who gained controlling interest in December 1960.

(AP Wirenhoto) Nationals Can Make It 17-16 With Win CLEVELAND, Ohio (AP)—The favored National League was prepared to go all out in today's Ail- Star game with the leading American League as the series reverted to the original one game plan after four years of double helpings. About 45,000 fans were expected to turn out in sunny cool weather for the nationally televised (NBC) game starting at noon, (EST). This would be some 24,000 off the all-time record of 69,831 set in this same Municipal Stadium for the third game, July 8, 1935. For Manager Alvin Dark of the San Francisco Giants this was a chance to get even with Manager Ralph Houk of the New York Yankees for last year's World Series. Although Dark's Giants took the Yankees down to the last out in October, they lost when Willie McCovey lined a rocket to Bobby Richardson for the final out in the seventh game. Both McCovey and Richardson were on the squads although neither was a starter. paw—Juan Pizarro of Chicago. The American League held a 17-15-1 edge alter 33 games but the National had an 11-5-1 winning edge in the last 17 games and 4-1-1 in the last six. 'Big Marge' Dominates Wimbledon's Fair Sex By GEOFFREY MILLED WIMBLEDON, England (AP)— Margaret Smith, the tall and statuesque 20-year-old from Albery, Australia, wore the laurels of two Wimbledon triumphs with coolness and poise today and laid for all time the gibe that she tiasn't got the temperament for the big occasion. She and Chuck McKinley of San Antonio, Tex., men's singles champion, were the outstanding personalities of a Wimbledon that had plenty of rain but lacked the colorful players of past tournaments. Monday, "Big Marge" slaugh- Jim OToolo. Cincinnati's od left-hander wilh a shiny 13-6 reoorcl, was Dark's starting pitcher. The Giants' skipper had a capable staff to follow 0-Toole.

Calif., mainly because her partner, Robyn Ebbern, 18, was too nervous for the the usually bouncy Billie Jean. The Australian girl won 6-3, 6-4. Billie Jean, who studied all winter and didn't start serious tennis until May, confessed afterward that you can't concentrate on your education and win top class tennis tournaments, too. The women's singles final had been postponed from Saturday because of rain. So Margaret didn't have the honor of leading off the Wimbledon ball with McKinley on Saturday night, according to tradition. He danced with his wife, Wylita, instead. SIU Man Gets Pat on Back CLEVELAND (AP) — A Southern Illinois University professor received accolades at a meeting of National League baseball offi- c'als and club owners Monday. Horace Stoneham, president ofj na i s . the National League's San Fran-j Von cisco Giants, confirmed that Finley had approached him in an ef 1 fort to secure the use of the Giants' Candlestick Park until the Oakland stadium was finished. "Mr. Finley was in to see me 10 days or two weeks ago," Stoneham said in San Francisco. "He asked me if his club could play in Candlestick Park as a starter—until Oakland finished a proposed stadium. "But I told hini it would be better for him to establish himself directly in Oakland. As I understand it, Mr. Finley had talked to and received backing of certain interests in Oakland." While, denying that Finley had formally requested a move, Cronin said: "Mr. Finley discussed with us his problems in Kansas City, as he did a year ago, and expressed an interest in moving to Oakland. 1 cannot say any more at this time." Other American League officials, at first hesitant to discuss the matter, acknowledged that a heated discussion had taken place on Finley's proposal.

Baumann's arm began paining in the fifth inning of Saturday's game at Boston and the White Sox said Monday they don't know when he will play again. White Sox first baseman Joe Cunningham, who suffered a broken collarbone June 3, had the cast removed Monday. He will be able to work out in several weeks. A. Bender, a staff the SIU physical ec cation department, outlined a program of physical conditioning which he said could be used by all National League teams. The Pittsburgh Pirates have used Bender's physical conditioning program for the last two years and Pirate General Manager Joe L.

(AP)—Apathy is hurting boxing and inactivity may do the same to heavyweight champion Sonny Listen, former heavyweight king Jack Sharkey says. Sharkey blames the easy life of the times for the decline of the ring sport he loves. "It's easy to point out why boxing and the interest in it is fading," Sharkey said. "All the kids look for today is the easiest way out. When I was a kid it was nothing for me to walk two or three miles for a loaf of bread. We were in shape in those days, we had to be. "You can count on one hand today the number of real contenders in each division throughout the country. As a matter of fact, I bet you can't name three in each division that are strong contenders. At least I can't." How about the coming Liston- Floyd Patterson rematch in Las Vegas? "One thing stands out in my mind," Sharkey said. "This year's layoff may have hurt Liston more than Patterson. "Sonny is more of a glory boy. In the long run, that could hurt." Gal Golfers Seek Western COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo.

Vernon, Wash. studied hard. I just didn't have time to keep in shape." When spring training opened in 195S, the Cards had high hopes for Von. But he says he tried to do too much too soon. "I just needed longer to get in shape because of going to summer school. But being young, I worried about it and wound up trying to throw harder than I was capable of doing," he said. "That hurt my arm a little. But the really bad effect was a hitch it developed in my delivery. 'I had a good fast ball that moved around, but my best pitch was a curve, and I had good control and kept the ball low." Destruction of his smooth delivery ruined all that, and Von does and give him a chance to work at it. "He's throwing harder now than he was when he hurt his arm. Von has a lol of ability, even as an infielder. It was his decision to give pitching another try and he has a great arm. He might make it." A native of Hollis, Okla., Von comes from an athletic clan. His brothers, Lindy and • Kerry Don, also signed bonus contracts with the Cardinals. Lindy is pitching in relief for the Chicago Cubs, and Kerry Don, four years younger than Von, is in the minors. Houston manager Harry Craft "talked to me last winter about pitching agaiijg' Von said. "I've been hoping to pitch again all along and I'll stay with it as long as I can keep improving. I'd like to make it back up there next year."

Break Could Ruin Braves' Sudden Rush MILWAUKEE (AP)—The three- day break for the All-Star game gave the Milwaukee Braves a chance to catch their breatb, but they weren't sure they needed the opportunity. The Braves played 27 games in 24 playing dates, including three doubleheaders. But they finished with a rush, winning five of their last six games and moving to within one game of the first division. While Warren Spahn, Hank Aaron, Joe Torre and Bob Hendley were in Cleveland for today's interleague showdown, the remainder of the Braves were off. They make their next start in a. twi-night doubleheader in St. Louis Thursday evening. There will be work before that, however. Before heading for Cleveland, Manager Bobby Bragan passed the word—a workout Wednesday in County Stadium. With the exception of Spahn, all of the Braves hurlers will be rested and ready for duty when the campaign renews. "Our pitching was the bright spot on the first segment of the road trip," Bragan said. "We got seven complete games in the 11 starts and four were shutouts. Spahn, of course, was miraculous."

Led by Bob Zender, Skokie, and Bill Lee, Dolton, the low 60 scorers and ties out of an original field of 161 will compete Wednesday for the title vacated by Ray Bamhart, Downers Grove. Barnhart could not defend his title this year because he has passed his 21st birthday. Zender and Lee grabbed a first- place tie in the opening round with 2-over-par 74s over the Crystal Lake Country Club course, which has a par of 36-36—72.

Grier, 31, a 6-foot-5, 290-pound- er, combined with tackle Dick Modzelewski and ends Jim Katcavage and Andy Robustelli on the Giants' front line that helped win five Eastern Division titles and one National Football League championship. LoVclere, 27, is S-foot-4 and weighs 285. He has been in the league five seasons and three times has been chosen as the Rams top linesman. "The Rams initiated the trade to strengthen their line," said Giant coach Allie Sherman. "They feel that'll be an asset to the defense. But we feel it will help us, too, because in addition to getting LoVetere, the deal should solidify our backfield." Sherman plans to use the draft choice as bait for a deal for a top running back. Grier, who will be starting his eighth season in the league, and the other three members of the Giants defensive unit played together every 'minute of every season since 1956, except for 195" when Grier was in the Army anc a few games toward the end of the 1960 season when Katcavage was hurt.
