By WILL GKLUSLKY Associated Press Sports Writer NEW YORK (AP)—-One morning Slan Musial will wake up with an aching back, legs that feel like bolts of lead and a bitter dislasle for having to rouse himself out of bed and report lo the ball park. "When thai happens," the ageless wonder of Cardinals said the St. Louis today, "when baseball quits being fun and becomes a drudgery, I'll retire." It appears that time may never come for Ihe brilliant combination outfielder - first baseman, whose National League and major league records lake up almost a full page of -agate type in the Baseball Register. Al 42, he is as lean and hard as the day in .1941 when, as a raw rookie from Donora, Pa,, he first broke into: the Cardinal dine-up. He weighs 180 pounds'— five pounds less than he did a half- dozen years ago when he was a $100,000-a-year commodity. He is the 'Picture of-health. He is full of boyish enthusiasm. He laughs freely—and constantly. "I'm a pretty lucky fellow," he said, while changing into uniform al the Polo Grounds. "I feel great. Nothing hurts. I still gel inlo a few games and I figure I can do Ihe club a lillle good."

"I can understand when t fellow like Joe DiMaggio re- Ires. He suffers a foot injury and hen has back Irouble. It's hard o gel in shape. Every game becomes a drudge.

"Three years? Heavens, no, Musial said. "I'll really be ready 'or the wheel chair in three years." Clay'sLawyer Talks Title .NEW YORK (AP) - You can't :ell a fighter without his lawyei liese days. And a fighter can't get along without the barristers in these complicated days of taxes, ancil- ary rights and corporations so :hat getting into the ring seems to be the .easiest tiling unless you're an opponent of heavy weigh' iliampion Sonny Lislon.

HOSE Associated Press Sports Writer About this time a year ago Jack Sanford had won seven straight games in a streak that eventually stretched to 16 and an outstanding 24-7 record with the San Francisco iants. In that long victory run, the husky right-hander completed only five games, getting relief help and plenty of batting support to enable him to earn credit for the other 11 victories. This was mighty nice and was reflected in a fat $37,000 salary for 1963, befitting the star pitcher of a National League championship team. and irable Construction, both win- lers Monday night, meet at :30 while Gillespie battles Bob •md Gene's at 8:45.
