Lakers in Semis, Nip Springfield DECATUR—The Alton Lakers moved one step closer to the Women's State Softball Championship with a 2-0 decision over Springfield at Chaps Field Friday night. Bev Conuway fired her second straight shut-out in tourney play as she fanned nine, walked three and scattered throe lilts. Miss Conaway outdualed Springfield's Rogers who also pitched a three-hitter. The lookers scored their two runs in (ho seventh without a hit. Star Travis, who brought a largo crowtl to Its foot with a fine fielding play, led .off the seventh with a base on balls and moved to second on Sandy GrlniHley's fielder's choice. 4-1 Odds That Listen Whips Patterson By BOB IMYKRS Associated Press Sports Wriler LAS VEGAS, Nev. (AP)—One of the more unusual betting lines posted in this gaudy gambling capital today was an even-money chance that Monday's Sonny Liston-Floyd Patterson heavyweight title fight won't last four rounds. The champion, Liston, in man- to-man betting is about 4-1 to retain the title and there is a suspicion the odds would be wider except that the betting people are trying to lure more Patterson money into the action. You can get ?5 for $2 if the fight ends in the first or second rounds. It's 4-1 if it goes five, 12-1 if it goes 10 and 30-1 if it lasts the full 15 rounds. The principals wind up all serious exercises today and head into seclusion until the weigh-In at 11 a.m. PDT Monday at the Conven- ton Center, 8,000-seat site of the national (closed-circuit) television attraction. Liston will gain some relief from a steady haranguing from challenger Cassius Clay, who, it developed belatedly, got a right hand slap on the cheek two days ago from a fed-up Sonny. The incident occurred in the casino of Sonny's plush hotel training quarters. Clay admitted he got slapped and from what Sonny said in his confirmation, it was not exactly play. Nor was there any fight ballyhoo involved. There were no writers nor cameramen around it the time. Cassius, in fact, has taken the publicity play away from the remote Patterson, who after all, Is trying to retain his crown from Liston, not Clay. "He was running his mouth," Sonny said of Cassius. Was it a hard slap? "I didn't have no gauge," Sonny answered, Cassius reappeared to heckle Listen's workout Friday but by now his material is beginning to pall. It might even reuch the level of his poetry. Betty Onofrey, who tagged out two runners at the plate in the game, then reached base on an error, Miss Travis holding second. Both runners advanced a base on a wild pitch. Miss Conaway bounced one to the right side. The first baseman after tugging out the batter fired home in an attempt to get Miss Travis scoring from third. The throw was awry and both base runners scored. Tlio Lakers meet the Do catur Mcrclianettes, defending state champions, tonight, at 7:30 In the semifinals of the tourney. The chain. pionship game Is scheduled for Sunday at 7:30 p.m. The Lakers own three decisions over the Merchancltes in four games.

His best finish Was 20th at Cleveland In 1962. He finished out of the money In Chicago and Rockford, the only two meets of the summer tour in which he has competed. His first game in the afternoon was a 198 and that was the only time Morys failed to reach the 200 mark. He finished with a 1342 series for the afternoon session and then strung games of 249, 225, 236, 269 and 215 in the nightcap. Mory's, who started bowling as a pin boy in the same place he low manages, was accompanied o Alton by his wife, Beulah and :oils, Chuck 9, and Mike 10. I arrived Tuesday nnd practiced only two hours Thursday,' 1 Mory's said In partial explanation for his Iron-Minn rolling, "So I had plenty of lime to rest before today." Andy Marzich of Long Beach, Calif., who has already collected more than $22,000 from the PBA :otfers this year, rolled with the \ squad and came in with a 2687, A-hich stood up until Morys' blaz- ng finish. THE DARKHORSE Joe Morys, a 48-year-old pro from Union Lake, Michigan, leads the Alton Open with a pin total of 2757. He turned in the highest series Friday night, a 1415. Morys has never finished higher than 20th in a PBA tournament.—Don Hayes Photo Senators Are Hottest Team, Win 11 of 14 By JOE UEICIILl'JR Associated Press Sports Writer Sometimes the most improb.ible things happen in baseball. Such as the Washington Senators playing the best ball in the American League. And a minor league failure like Don Lock, who batted under .200 in the International League just last yar, breaking up game after game in the big leagues with timely base hits. Take Friday night. The Senators, trailing the hard- hitting Twins in Minnesota, 4-1 after seven innings, rallied for four runs in the eighth and broke through again in the 13th to win PROBABLE PITCHERS By THE ASSOCIATED PUKSS National League San Francisco (Sanford 9-10) at Cincinnati (Nuxhall 6-4) (N). New York (Jackson 6-10) at Philadelhia (Green 2-3) Houston (Fan-ell 6-7) at St. Louis (Simmons 7-5) (N). Chicago (Hobbie 4-8) at Pittsburgh (Gibbon 4-6) Los Angeles (Koufax 16-3) at Milwaukee (Lemaster 5-5) American League Baltimore (Roberts 6-9) at Kansas City (Wickersham 6-7) (N) Detroit (Bunning ,6-10) • at Los Angeles (McBride 10-7) (N). Cleveland (Donovan 6-6) at New York (Ford 14-3) Washington (Ridzik 1-0) at Minnesota (Stigman 8-9) Boston (Monbouquette 13-6) ar. Chicago (Fisher 5-6 or Pizarro 11-5). 6-5. It was the cellar-d-vellers' llth victory in the last 14 games. No other club in the league can match that. Lock slashed a two-out singw to drive in the winning run. In the eighth he singled in another run during the uprising against starter Jim Kaat and ace reliever Bill Dailey. The 26-year-old outfielder, purchased last year despite a .194 batting average and a history of never hitting .300 in.six years in the minors, slammed a home run his first time at bat. That gave him 13 for (lie season, second high on the club. He leads the Senators in runs bat- All-Stars Work On Passing CHICAGO (AP) — The College All-Stars know they have to put together a passing attack if they hope to defeat the Green Bay Packers Aug. 2. And no passing attack can be put together without pass protection, one of the biggest problems facing the coaching staff headed by Otto Graham. Assistant coach Dick Stanfel has been working with the linemen on offense and feels that Don Estes of Louisiana State, a 235- pound tackle, and Ed Budde, a 260-pound tackle from Michigan State, are coming along well in learning the techniques of protecting the passer. . . Don Chuy, a 260-pound tackle from Clemson, has been switched to guard. Stanfel says Chuy is willing to learn and should be able to do the job, ted in with 47. Kansas City nipped Baltimore 2-0 and Detroit defeated Los An ;eles 10-5. Rain forced postponement of games between the Boston Red Sox and White Sox in Chicago, and the Cleveland Indians, and Yankees in New York. In the National League, Los An ;eles widened its first-place bulge over Chicago to 7 ] / a games with a 4-2 victory over Milwaukee as the Cubs bowed to Pittsburgh 9-4. inclnnati moved into a fourth- place tie with San Francisno, mating the Giants b-2. St. Louis defeated Houston 7-2 and Phila delphia nipped the New Yurk Wets 2-1 on Roy Sievers" two-run lomer in the bottom of the ninth. A throwing eis'or by Twins shortstop Zoilo Versalles led to Wash- ngton's winning run. Ken Rerzer, on base because of the error, ad vanced to second on an infield out and scored on Lock's single to •ight. Lefty Claude Osteen, Washing- on's winning pitcher, held off a Minnesota uprising in the bottom of the 13lh to gain his fourth vic- :ory in 10 decisions, With one out, Don 'Mincher, Earl Battey and Vic Power delivered consecutive singles but Mincher was out trying,for third or Battey's hit. Osteen got Wally Post to ground out to end the ;ame. Merchants Win One, Lose One ELWIN — The Alt-Wood Mer chants split a doubleheader with Elwin, Illinois Friday, losing the first contest, 6-3, winning the second game, 11-2. In the opener Craft held the Merchants to six hits and five Alt-Wood errors paved the wa> for Elwin scoring. Rister took the loss, giving up seven hits. Wintjen went two-1'or-three West tripled and Melz homered for the Merchants, In the nightcap Johnson went the distance for Alt-Wood, strik ing out 15 while walking only two and allowing but three hits.

Plans As US Meets USSR By JIM BECKER Associated Press Sports Writer MOSCOW (AP) - It will be American flexibility agains f Soviet planning, in the annual dual meet between the United State! and Soviet track teams today and Sunday. "We're going to upset their plans," said U.S. Coach Payton Jordan of Stanford. "We'll rely on flexibility and ingenuity." Jordan, supremely confident that his team will make the best showing of all the five meets against Russia, explained that the Soviet distance runners usually rely on planned confusion. "They grab the lead in the 10,000, and then jockey the pace, faster, slower, trying to upset pace. When they have you thoroughly confused they settle down to their race. "In the steeplechase, they work it so always to have position on the hurdles and you have to hang back and wait your turn. "They are great at these two events, and our men usually have just tried to stay with them, with poor results. "This time, we will jockey right with them in the 10,000, and then set out on our own pace. They will have to come with us or they won't be there at the nd. In the steepplechase, we are going to do a little of that posi- jon grabbing ourselves. "We're going to upset their plans. Let's see how good they fire in a scramble." American League W. L.

Finley emphasized he did not approach Oakland. "They came to me," he said "They gave me brochures and pictures of a projected stadium (seating 48,500). I'm certain every other American League club owner got the same brochures and pictures. The league would be nuts not to listen." The Associated Press reported exclusively last Monday that Finley was seeking to move his A's to Oakland and had requested permission from owner Horace Stoneham of the San Francisco Giants for the use of Candlestick Park until the proposed Oakland stadium was ready. "While I was in San Francisco a couple of weeks ago," said Fin ley, "I dropped in to see Mr. Stoneham. I said, 'We've received a proposal from the Oakland Coliseum Corporation invit ing us to move our club to Oakland. " If we do consider anything like that, what would be the possibility of playing in Candlestick Park for 1964 and 1965?' "The answer was 'no.' Naturally, he would like to keep that area for himself.
