But it's more like coming home for the 32-year-old Kansas City resident. A native of Alton, Pace spent 27 years living here before joining the 'pro circuit. He has bowled often at Bowl Haven, in fact, every time he comes through town. He has been touring with the Professional Bowling Association for the past three and a half years. His best finish in a tournament occurred in the 1962 Rochester Open when he came in second, 47 phis behind the best of bowling, Don Carter. He has also recorded finishes of third, fifth, sixth, eighth, ninth and tenth (four times) in his relatively brief association with the PBA. A year ago, Pace finished 25th in the strike and spare wars, collecting $7,830 for his efforts. The life of the touring professional bowler can be a tough grind, and Pace cautions the young bowler who dreams of the glory and prize money to be sure that he feels ready to tackle the difficult field, but, if he feels confidant, to pursue that course while he is young enough to reap its benefits. The expenses of the tour run an average of $1,000 per month and many a bowler has gone through a bank account. .Pace, himself, along with two other Kansas City pin men, is sponsored. Mel Hillard Chevrolet pays the ex penses for him, Bill Johnson and Glen Blakely. By THE ASSOCIATED PRESS National League W.« L. Pet.

BOWLER BACK HOME BUI Pace poses with his daughters Janet and Linda (right) at Bowl Haven Thursday where he is participating in the Alton PBA Open. "You then file with the PBA and are later screened. It usually takes from 30 to 60 days before you know whether or not you've made it." Of the 875-900 members of the professional pin ranks, 96 are participating in the Alton Open for a first prize of $4,000. . After Alton, Pace will follow the pro circuit south to Fort Smith, Arkansas, Meridian, Mississippi, San Antonio, Texas; then west to Phoenix and Tucson and up the coast of California, finally ending the summer tour at Las Vegas in October. The Midwest, Pace claims, is the most enthusiastic part of the country for bowling but other sections are becoming more spirited in their support. After Las Vegas, Pace has a month to visit his family before the winter tour begins. He has stayed home the past three months while his wife expected their third child. Born last week, Lynnette became the fifth mem ber of the Pace household. "My wife is one of my biggest supporters, and that's Important for a bowler," he commented. "She understands that this is what I want to do and backs me all thp way." With the knowledge of the alleys derived from personal experience, the "Pacer" as he's called by his fellow travelers could well be one of the favor- Jtes in the home-town meet despite his recent layoff, He also has two of his favorite rooters, daughters and Janet with him for the first time on the tour, what better incentive for a proud papa than the jGQnibJnation of first-hand knowledge and a pair of ; blonde cheerleaders, •.f • * * * ,"'•'.

Reds Stop Card Rally, Win, 6-3 CINCINNATI (AP)—With Gene Freese slugging his first home run since 1961, the Cincinnati Reds overpowered the St. Louis Cardinals 6-3 Thursday night. Freese, who was recalled from San Diego only last Friday, hit a three-ran blast to open the Reds' scoring in the first inning. He added another run with a hit in the third. The Cardinals got to starter Bob Purkey for a run in the seventh. Purkey walked Ken. Boyer with one out and then Tim Mo- Carver hit a single. Purkey fanned George Altman, but Julian Javier hit a one-run single to center. The Cardinals filled the bases after Gary Kolb walked but, alas, reliever Jim Owens came in to retire the side. The Cards, after scoring a run in the fourth on Dick Groat's sacrifice fly, and pushing across that tally in the seventh, scored a final ran in the eighth. The Cardinals are at Houston tonight. Ernie Brolio- (10-6) will start for the Cardinals with Don Nottebart (6-4) going for the, Colts. By JOE REICIILER Assoelnted Press Sports Writer It Is generally acknowledged that Sandy Koufax has beetl con slstently sensational, Don Drys dale has been sporadically spec tacular and Ron Perranoskl has been absolutely superb. But the key pitcher in the. Los Angeles Dodgers' quest for their first National League pennam since 1959 is southpaw Johnny Podres, the elder statesman 01 the staff. The author of this sage obser vation is no less an authority than Alvin Dark, manager of San Francisco's defending champion Giants who today found them selves looking up at the rim-away Dodgers from a fourth-place position eight full games below.

"The National League face will go right down to the \yife again " unless Podres stays hot," Dark commented. "But if he keeps on pitching like he has lately It will be awfully tough to catch them." In the past eight days, Podres " has added three victories extending his winning streak to five in ' a row for an over-all 9-6 record. His performance Thursday night In the Dodgers' 10-5 triumph over Pittsburgh was not as impeccable as were his other victories du'r- ' ing the streak, But he allowed only one run until Roberto Cle- mcnle tagged him for a two-run homer in the seventh inning. .By that time the Dodgers hud built up a 10-3 lead and virtually were assured of protecting their game margin over the runn'er- up Chicago Cubs, who earlier had beaten the Milwaukee Braves 3-2. Cincinnati defeated St. Louis * 6-3 to drop the third-place Cardi-;; nals a game .behind the Cubs. : San Francisco clung to its one- game edge over the fifth-place Reds by coming from behind: to ~ nip the New York Mets 6-5 and Philadelphia trounced Houston 5-1. There were only three scheduled games in the American '" League. Minnesota whipped the league-leading New York Yankees 9-3, Boston beat Kansas City 10-6 and Baltimore outlasted be- " troit 8-6 in 11 innings. Maury Wills, back in his Most "" Valuable Player form of last year, v * drove in four runs with a single " and double. The Dodgers ham- - mered loser Earl Francis 'and four relievers for 14 hits but actu- '" ally It was five unearned.runs in. a big sixth inning that proved to be the difference.
