(Don Hayes photo) Long Season, Dark Says By LOU PRATO PITTSBURGH (AP) - Al though the Los Angeles Dodgers appear on the verge of turning the National ^League race into a runaway, there's no panic among the defending champion San Francisco Giants. The slumping Giants lost a doubleheader : to the Pittsburgh Pirates Monday night 2-1 arid 4-1, and dropped into, third place— seven games behind the Dodgers and one game back of second- place Chicago. The defeats were the fourth and fifth of the current Giant road trip and their 13th and 14th defeats in their last 23 games. But they don't, appear to be too concerned. "There's still a long season ahead,". Manager Alvin Dark said in the Giant clubhouse after the twin bill. "Every team has a slump during the,year and this is ours. The Dodgers haven't had one yet. Besides, I think we were about this far back last year at this'time .and we still won it." Neither Dark • nor his players appear worried about the current Lakers Own Three Wins Over Decatur With a successful season be- lind them, the Alton Lakers will )e bidding for the women's state Softball crown at Decatur and the lost team looms as their biggest 'bstacle. The Decatur Merchanettes are the defending s t at e champions find have the advantage of the home field as well as prestige riding w i t h them. The Lakers, however, in four contests this' season with the Decatur nine, have coina off a winner three, times. On May 25, the Lakers turned back the Merchanettes, 6-2, in the opener of a double header before dropping the second game, 7-1. On June 29 at -.\ Watertower Park, Alton swept a twinbill from Decatur, 4-0 and 3-1. The Lakers have faired well against state competition. In addition to their three victories over the Merchanettes, the Lakers own two wins over Wood River, and a victory over Springfield. 1 slump. The Giant clubhouse.! In their last outing the Lakers lost a 2-1 decision to Ballwin, Mo., in extra innings. Bev Connway, with assistance from Sandy Grimsley, has been the mainstay of the Lnker pitching staff, appearing in nearly every Alton contest. A tight infield of Norma Ims at third, Star Travis at short, Lea though far from festive, did not have the somber mood that marks many losers' dressing rooms. Players joked a little and laughed a little. No furniture was wrecked. And no- tempers flared. "We just haven't been hitting," Dark said. "We've been getting pretty good pitching but you have to hit to score runs. Follis at second and Jackie Hanc at first give the Lakers a topflight defensive .unit. Patrolling the outfield are Scottie Freeman in center, Donna Zumwalt, Cheryl Clark and Sandy Bolen. Betty Onofrey handles the catching. Lorraine Burke is the team manager. Miss Burke co-managed the St. Louis Blues to Western Regional Championships in 1958, 1959 and 1960. The Lakers are seeded in the :6ugh upper bracket. They play hey're first game Wednesday night at 7:30 against the Robinson Orphans. The Lakers "had been scheduled to play the Orphans last Saturday in an exhibition game but the contest was rained out. .-.'.'

The new coach promises "fast breaking, exciting, winning basketball." . ... Schayes joined the Nats after graduating from New York Uni versity and spent his entire 15- year pro career with them. During that time he played in more regular season games (1,035), scored more points (19,115), shot more free throws. (8,216) and made more of them (6,933) than any other pro player.
