Elwin also Butts Bursts Into Tears on Stand By DON MCKEE ATLANTA (AP)—A climax appeared near today in Wally Butts' court fight for 'a $10-million libel judgment fro/i Curtis Publishing Co., after the former Georgia coach burst into tears on the witness stand. Butts broke down 'Monday after again denying Saturday Evening Post charges that he helped rig the outcome o[ the 1962 Georgia- Alabama football game. His attorney, William H. Schroder Jr., indicated that the initial case for Butts might be concluded shortly. This is (he seventh day of the trial. On the stand when court adjourned Monday was John Carmichael, Atlanta businessrimn and former associate of the publishing firm's : star witness, :Gporge P. Burnett. ' Carmichael testified he was standing outside an office door at the time Burnett said he was listening in on a telephone conversation between Butts and Coach Paul (Bear) Bryant of Alabama. The Post said Butts fed data on Georgia's team to Bryant. PROBABLE PITCHERS By THE ASSOCIATED I'HESS American Lengiie Carmichael, dapper and dark- haired, was asked what Burnett told him. "Well, he said Coach Wally Butts had called Coach Bear Bryant and he had got hooked up in the conversation... and Coach Butts said some football player... was a great player... and Georgia had added two coaches... and Bryant was to call back..." Carmichael said Burnett asked for advice about betting on the game, then nine days in the future. Bui Carmichael said he told Burnett to forget the whole qualified at Sullivan with a third place finish. The Quincy Merchants emerged victorious at Quincy and will be here along with Southern Illinois Athletic Club of Cahokia, the third place team at Caseyville.

Carmichael was called after Butts had testified the Post charges were not true. As his attorney read a Post editorial note charging him and Bryant with rigging the game, Bulls sat impassively. Asked if the charge was true, Butts said: "No. And 1 would like to explain that. For a time, 1 hid from people. But not any longer—because it is not true!" Then he burst into sobs, Holding liis right hand over his eyes, the stocky Butts half-stumbled from the witnes stand. His wife and three daughters, sitting near the counsel table, also began weeping as did several spectators in the crowded courtroom. Judge Lewis R. Moran called a recess for about 10 minutes. When Butts returned to ST. LOUIS (AP) The St. the I New York (Terry 13-11) at Bos- stand, he was questioned by a Curtis attorney about a financial statement showing his worth at more' than $200,000 in July, 1961. "I've never been worth $100,000" said Butts who said he is now insolvent. Butts said he had lost on several business ventures, had to sell Louis Cardinals open a six game homestand tonight against the Houston Colts at Busch Stadium. The second-place San Francisco Giants follow the Colts into St. Louis', but Cardinal Manager Johnny Keane isn't thinking about the. Giants yet. "We can't afford to take anyone; lightly," the Cardinal manager said. "Not the way we've been playing. We need to score a few runs to get started." Ernie Broglio (12-8) will open the Colt series against Bob Bruce (5-8) or Ken Johnson (6-15). Broglio will be trying for his third victory over Houston after being bombed by the last place New York Mets in his last start at New York. St. Louis has won 34 games out of the 56 in St. Louis and could get back on the winning side of the ledger. They are six games [back of first place Los Angeles GEOBGE HUNT Texas Southern Gets George Hunt George "Pecwec" Hunt, w h o helped lead Alton High School to the Illinois state track title this past season, will be rendering his services tor another outfit this coming fall.

Twice runnerup in the state finals of the half-mile a n d again ruimerup at the Golden West Invitational Track Meet In Los Angeles In June, Hunt had a great number of college and university offerings Including such distinguished institutions as Illinois, Indiana, Ohio State and Western Michigan. "I had a difficult time choosing from among the many offers," the star half-fniler commented, 'but Texas Southern gave me the best offer and I look it, "Besides, I know a number of the athletes down there and that always helps." Hunt, who bccuini! the fourth fastest Itnlf-miler in high school history when he finished second behind Dennis Carr of Whittier, Calif, in the California run with a clocking of 1:51.7, hopes to run on the mile relay team as well as the 880.

Not for the Los Angeles Dodgers. It's their favorite day. First, it's often baseball's day of rest and the Big Three of the Dodger pitching staff say they need it. Second, the last, two Mondays the National League leaders mve sat on the sidelines and vatched some of the also-rans knock off their principal opposi- ion, the San Francisco Giants. The seventh-place Philadelphia Phillies did the job Monday, rally- ng for a 3-1 verdict over the Giants that increased the idle Dodgers' lead from 3% to four games. A week before, ninth-place Houston turned the trick, edging the liants 5-4 and increasing the idle Dodgers' lead from 4% to five ;ames. Then, too, there's the rest angle. And Johnny Podres, Sandy Koufax and Don Drysdaie say they aadly need it. The record bears them out. Their combined recent record is 5-6.

Ralston Holds Key to U.S. Net Success LOS ANGELES (AP)-^An urt- ranked tennis player holds the key to the U.S. Davis Cup team regaining its lost International supremacy, Wimbledon champion Chuck McKinley is counted on to win his matches for the United States In the interzone semifinals against Mexico starting Friday at the Los Angeles Tennis Club.- But Dennis Ralstoti, 21 of Bakersfield, Calif., needs to he oh top of his game to insure the American team's advance in the Davis Cup competition. Ralston admittedly is the second best player on the U.S. team, but he is unranked. Since 1960, when he teamed with Rafael Osuna, now of Mexico, to win the Wimbledon doubles title, Ralston has been suspended by the U.S. Lawn Tennis Association, has been sidelined by a bad knee, and then kept out of action by blisters on both hands. Ralston's suspension was for "continually swearing, kicking his racquet and snubbing Mexico's team captain. Francisco Centre- ras" in the Davis Cup matches in Cleveland in .1961. University of Southern California tennis coach George Toley says Osuna and Contreras told him they believed the suspension unwarranted. "He wasn't swearing continually, he didn't throw his racquet and he didn't snub Contreras," said Toley. But more importantly, Ralston gives evidence of having put his temperamental outbursts behind him, and his record this year is most impressive. With his knee ailments cured, his hands fully healed, Ralston has beaten McKinley in the final round of the U.S. Indoor Championships.' He had lost only two matches from January through late June.

(AP) - Stan Musial, 42, wrote his baseball obituary Monday. "Baseball has been my life," said the tearful Cardinal legend in announcing his retirement at the end of this season after 22 years in the major leagues. "1 love St. Louis and I've had fun all of these years." Choked with emotion, The Man chose as a setting for his retirement announcement the picturesque country quiet of Grant's Farm, estate of Cardinal president August A. Busch Jr. Busch was out of town and Branch Rickey, baseball's old wurltorse and Redbird senior consultant, was not present. But" Stan's St. Louis teammates were, along with their families. They gave Muslul a standing ovation when he moved to a battery of microphones and faced television cameras at the annual Cardinal picnic. 4 "This is a happy occasion in a way," he said, "find an unhappy occasion in n way, But I'll bo associated with the Cardinals in a continuing capacity." Red-eyed, the man from Donora, Pa., said his retirement was inevitable. "Our outfield is in good hands,' he said, "and I don't think a fel- low can expect to play longer than 2 2 years in the major leagues. But I've had the best Job in the world, the thrill of putting ort a major league uniform, hitting, fielding and playing ball is greater than any other job t could ever have." He said that he would continue lo operate his St, Louis restaurant and manage a baseball bat firm. Muslnl's almost unparalleled feats on the diamond gained him sports immortality. He has played more games with one major league club than any player in history. He holds National League records foi 1 runs, 1,939; games, 2,987; hits, 3,610; doubles, 721; times at bat, 10,881, and runs batted in, .1,937. He holds the major league record for total bases, 6,099. Three times The Man won Nu tional League Most Valuable Player awards—in 1943, 19-16 and 1948. Seven times he hold batting titles -.357 in J04H, .365 In 1!MG, .376 in 194S, .346 in 1950, .355 in 1951. .336 in 1952 and .351 in 1957. Last year he played in 135 games, batting ,330. Playing few er games this year he was hitting .260 Monday but was fourth among the Curds in RBl's with 44. Musial's last regular season game will be in St. Louis Sept. 29 against Cincinnati. LA Rookie Hurler Praised By Koufax MILWAUKEE .(AP) — -The Dodgers have had the National League lead continuously since July 2 but the Big Three of the pitching staff agree that they're jetting a bit tired. Don Drysdale and Sandy Koufax have complained of stiff arms. Johnny Podres has required Jots of manipulation by the trainers to keep his pitching arm in condi- aon. "We're going to have to get Mays Shakes Bad Slump By RALPH BERNSTEIN Associated Press Sports Writer PHILADELPHIA (AP) - Willie Mays has a formula for handling batting slumps: Don't get down on yourself; don't lose your courage or your confidence. The 32-year-old outfielder for the San Francisco Giants has shaken one of the worst hit droughts of his fine career. After batting at about a .260 level most of the 1963 season he has upped his average to a respectable .290 and cur rently has a 14-game hitting string going. What causes a slump? "If I could explain what causes a slump I'd never go into one," commented Mays before Monday night's game with Philadelphia. Mays, who has hit .344 since July 1, said he expects slumps. "I know I'm going to have at least one a season," he admits. "The thing to do is not fight yourself about it, I know what lean do and know that if I keep doing it I'll come out of it." Confidence is the key to the Mays slump formula. He says you have to believe in yourself, thai if you don't you're licked. He said he learned that the first year he came up with the Giants when he failed to get a hit in his first 25 times at bat. Is it possible he might be slowing up a little? "I'm doing things as well as ever did," said the centerflelder. "I know better than anyone that I'm not as young as.I used to be, but experience has helped make up the difference." some runs or we'll be in bad shape," says Drysdale. "Our pitching staff is wearing down faster this year than last. Close games grind down the staff and we've had a lot of close ones. I'm tired and stiff right now and ['ve been taking vitamin shots every other day." Koufax didn't have. his curve jail when he warmed up before Sunday's game against Cincinnati and was bombed out. He said his arm felt dead. Both Koufax and Drysdale indicated they thought 39-year-old Richie Calmus might be able to give the staff a lift if permitted to take a starting role. The rookie has the fourth best earned run average at 2.88, but has worked only 25 innings in relief. "I wish I had known at 19 what Calmus knows now about pitching," said Koufax. "He knows what to do when 'he takes the mound and some of the guys think he should be starting." But Podres says Calmus hasn't been tested under pressure. Podres agreed that Calmus liad looked good in his relief roles. Podres svill pitch the spries opener tonight against Milwaukee, with the veteran Warren Spahn possibly opposing him. Spahn hasn't pitched since he developed a sore elbow July 29, and if he doesn't, feel able to go at game time, Bob Sadowski will be the Braves' starter. He beat the Dodgers in Los Angeles July 21 Washed-Out Games Will Be Played Tonight The ASA Class B Tournament games which were rained out Monday night will be played tonight at Watertower. At 7:30 Jerseyville meets the VFW while the Alton Bombers battle Grable Construction at 8:45. Both games are losers' bracket contests. The games originally scheduled for tonight will be postponed un til the Class A Tournament at Godfrey, which begins Wednesday night, is completed. Many children in the crowd, and quite a few adults, stretched forward to hear every word Muslal uttered. Stan, ever since he donned the Cardinal uniform Irt 1941, was one of the besWoved >layers In baseball. Mis springing crouch at the plate—feel close together, back lUnced—and his No, 6 uniform vere recognized by millions who ivalclied the Redblrds play, ei- her at the bait park or on television. His sharp face and constant grin helped make him popular. He said last week In New York n <4ii Interview with The Associated Press that "maybe" he would be back next year, addng: "I'll play it by ear." Bui Monday he said he had decided before he signed this year's contract that the 1963 season would be his' last. Cardinal Manager Johnny Kcano, his voice breaking, told Muslal: "After this season Is over, having the name of Stan Muslal missing from I he Cardinal line-up will be hard to gel used to. But one of I he big honors and privileges of my life has been to put on the same uniform Stan wears, be in the same room Stan is in, and be on the same field and ball club Iluil Stan is." Team captain Ken Boyer added: "Stan Musial is the greatest player ever to put on a uniform. He's our inspiration, our leader. Every time he broke a record ihese past few years, Stan would say: 'I'm breaking these records because they belong to the modern ball players, not the old- timers?" ST.
