'It's Getting Late/ Says JohnnyKeane NEW YORK (AP) — The St. Louis Cardinals, in third place with eyes on the top, play the New York Mets tonight after acquiring two new pitchers Monday. Curt Simmons 10-5, one of the Redbirds, steadiest, will face Galen Cisco 7-9. "It's getting late," Cardinal manager Johnny Keane said'. "But we nave a" ; ch'ahce.5t6 pick up ground." " The Redbirds bought Ken MacKenzie, 29, from the Mets and pulled up Sam Jones from Atlanta. Jones, 9-4 for the Card farm club, still holds the St. Lou is one-season strikeout record of 225. Jones set the record for the Redbirds in 1958. 'When the Cardinals brought Jones up, they sent relief pitcher Bob Humphreys to Atlanta. General manager Bing Devine said one other hurler had to go to make room for MacKenzie and he put righthander Ed Bauta 34 on waivers. The mets picked Bauta up from the Cards for the ?20,000 waiver price. Pitching isn't the only problem "We've got to get a few clutch hits," Keane said. Simmons will go into tonight's contest trying for his fourth win in a row. The Cardinals are in third place with a 62 and 49 record, a half- game behind second-place San Francisco and five games behind Los Angeles. The Dodgers are leading the league with a 66 and 43 slate. One thing the Cards have going for them against the lowly mets, 32^ games from first, is that the birds have won the opening game of their last eight series in the National League.

John Fennel Of Miami, Fla, who has snapped the world pole vault record six times this year and three times in a little more than three weeks, set his latest mark, 16 feet, 10M, inches, on Monday on the final day of the two-day meet with Britain. It broke his mark of 16-8% set in the same stadium July 13, and bettered by a fraction of an inch his showing in Warsaw July 26. The Yanks got off to a bad start on the four-meet European trip, and had to battle back to salvage a 119-114 victory over the Soviet Union in Moscow, but then they got rolling. They took the Poles 125-83 and West Germany 141-82 before coming to London. The U.S. coach, Payton Jordan, shuffled his forces throughout the four meets, with an eye to getting maximum international experience for the team. "This was a real young team —half of them had never been abroad before," Jordan said. "They got better as they went along, and the young fellows got running experience that will be valuable at the Russian meet next year and the Tokyo Olympics." Robert Hayes and Henry Carr, who hold the sprint world records, improved with every race. So did middle distance man Tom O'Hara. About half the team members are to fly home .late Tuesday. Two small groups are going to Sweden and Norway, another to Jamaica and a fourth to Romania . The American girls, humiliated in Moscow, got better every time out loo. They lost to the British girls— as they had lost at every other stop—but managed to win four of the 11 events on their program here. In the windup of the British meet, the Americans swept to 1-2 finishes in four events and took the mile relay. Frank Covelli won the javelin for the. other American win, while the British took the 3,000- meter steeplechase, the three miles, triple jump and shot put.

Cubs Begin Home Series WithDodgers CHICAGO (AP) - While Ernie Banks continues today a series of physical tests to determine what —if anything—might be ailing him, the Chicago Cubs open an important three-game series with Los Angeles. Important? Absolutely. If the Cubs can sweep the series, they will vault into serious contention for the National League pennant. They now trail the league-leading Dodgers by IVs games. Should they lose all three games, then the Cubs could have trouble finishing in the first division, a goal which has eluded them for the last 17 years. To open the series, the Cubs will send Larry Jackson 12-9 against Don Drysdale (13-12) or Bob Miller (7-7). Banks will miss the opener. He will be in Wesley Memorial Hospital to wind up a series of examinations. If nothing .wrong is found with Banks, he will probably return for Wednesday's game, but that will be no assurance that the greatest slugger in Cub history will resume a starting role he has been on the bench , • , i • T Houston's 6 W Boys Ruin San Francisco ' .
