In and out of the line-up be cause of his' weak legs, Davett port played a key role In a 6-3 victory over Cincinnati Thursday night that kept the second-p)ac< Giants right on the 'heels of the front-r u n n 1 n g Los Angeles Dodgers. Davenport, who stroked three hits for five straight hits In two games, legged out a key bunt sin glc In the fifth inning to keep a rally going. Before it was over, Willie Mays had smashed a decisive two-run single and the Giants had four runs and the ball game The triumph left the Giants three games behind the Dodgers, who again got a superlative reliel effort by Ron Perranoski, in a 7-5 decision at Milwaukee thai snapped a Ihree-game losing skid. Houston dropped third-place St. Louis five games behind with a '1-2 victory built on John Bateman's three-run homer, Philadelphia took fifth place from Chicago by edging the Cubs 4-3 and Pittsburgh walloped the New'York Mets 8-2. Davenport raced out a triple in the first, beat out an Infield hit In the third, then laid down his perfect bunt in the fifth to load the bases after Harvey Kuenn's single had accounted for the Giants' first run. Reds starter Joe Nuxhall, apparently upset, hit Willie McCovey with a pitch to force in a run before Mays wrapped it up. Nuxhall had gone into the inning with a 1-0 lead provided by Vada Pinson's homer off Jack Sanford. The Braves knocked but Sandy Koufax with a four-run first inning — three on Gene Oliver's homer — after the Dodgers had used Frank Howard's two-run homer to get off to a 3-0 lead in the top half of the inning. Then, in the fifth, with the score tied 5-5, the Dodgers broke through on a walk, Ron Fairly's double, a sacrifice fly by John Roseboro and Maury Wills' single. Perra- noski allowed only one hit in 3 2-3 innings, boosting his record to 12-2.

He's managed only six hits In five years here—five of them home uns. And three times he's won games on the Red Sox home field like Thursday when his grand slam and two-run homers powered New York to a 10-2 victory over Bos:on. "Yes, six hits in five years," Blanchard said grinning after his one-man show of might. "What a drought that is." Blanchard owned up to hitting wo successive game -winning inch hit homers at Fenway two /ears ago, one of them a grand lam. He went into New York and hit two more—four in our successive at bats. Earlier mis year Blanchard con- ributed a two-run homer in a •5 Yankee triumph. Blanchard teed off on Earl Wilson for his third major league slam Thursday as the highlight of a five-run opening inning. His ither homer was off ex-teammate Bob Turley. Blanchard, whose average is jarely peeking over .230 but has 1 RBI as a part-timer, has been sharing left field duties with Hecor Lopez. Other times he's spelled ailing Roger Mads in •ight. Does he like the arrangement, Blanchard was asked. "Heck yes, wouldn't you?" was he reply. "We're nine games in irst place. I can smell the roses already." Phils Take Series, \WT* 1~^* 1 /i o Win rinale, 4-3 CHldAGO (AP) — The Chicago Cubs started off great in the first inning against Philadelphia Thursday night, coasted along merrily until the seventh and at game's Cheer Honey Upset at Fair SPRINGFIELD, 111. (AP) — Glidden Hanover, owned by K.D. Owens and R.D. Ricketts of Houston, Tex., pulled the surprise of Grand Circuit week at the Illinois State Fair Thursday. ,« Driven by Eddie Wheeler, Glidden Hanover upset Cheer Honey, a top Hambletonian favorite, in the $24,125 Review Futurity Trot. Cheer Honey, seeking her fourth straight victory of the season, won the first heat in 2:02 2-5 with Glidden second. It was the reverse in the second heat; Glidden beat out the Donner Stable filly, piloted by Frank Ervin, with a sparkling 1:59 4-5, second fastest mile trotted by a Hambletonian eligible this season. Others finished this way: Filter 3-3, Lucy's Victory 4-5, Captain's Boy 5-4, Dorado 6-8, Donner Hanover 7-7, Fearless Hanover 8-G, Victor 9-9. All but Victory are eli- gibles for the Aug. 28 Hamble- tonian in Du Quoin, 111. The Review Futurity for pacers went to James B. Hanover in straight heats. Owned by Dr. and Mrs. Nichols Derrico, Pelham Manor, N.Y., and driven by Del Insko, Hanover won the first mile in 2:00 1-5 and the second in 2:01 2-5. end found themselves at the short end of a 4-3 score. The North Siders, playing in Philadelphia, leaped ahead in the first on a three-run homer by Ellis Burton, his 10th of the season. But after that, Philly starter Cal McLish settled down. For the next six innings, Cub right-hander Bob Buhl held tight to his three-run shutout—that is, until the eighth. Roy Sievers singled to open the Phillies' half of the inning and moved to second on another hit by Clay Dalrymple. Pinchhitter Cal Emery rapped a grounder to Ernie Banks but the Cub first baseman errored, allowing Sievers to score and Dalrymple to move to second. Tony Taylor slugged a triple to tie the score. With reliever Lindy McDaniel on the mound, Johnny Callison smashed a double scoring Taylor with the winning run. The loss gave Buhl a 9-11 record. • McLish, relieved for a pinchhitter in the seventh, now has a 12-8 record. The loss dropped the Cubs into sixth place in the National League. The Cubs move into Cincinnati for a twi-night doubleheader today. They plan to use Dick Ellsworth (16-7) and Glen Hobble (5-8) against Bob Purkey (5-8) and Joey Jay (4-16). The White Sox were idle Thursday but resume action tonight at Comiskey Park against the New York Yankees in a most important series. Juan Pizarro (14-6) will face Whitey Ford (17-6).

' The pairings for the Aug. 20 qualifying round Is as follows: In the 18-hole bracket, 8:30 — Beth NicklausMay Not Survive Hartford Cut HARTFORD, Conn. (AP) Guess the names of two rich golfers who are fighting to survive the cut today in (lie second round of the $40,000 insurance Cily Open. Quickly, they are 43-year-old Julius Boros, the U.S. Open champion, and 23-year-old Jack Nicklaus, the Masters and PGA champion. After Thursday's 18-holes on the par 35-36—71 Wethersfield Country Club course, both Boros and Nicklaus were far down the list because both were off their usual form. Nicklaus scrambled for a two- over-par 73 and Boros for his 37.37—74. Being two or three strokes over par isn't a calamity under normal conditions, but conditions aren't normal over the tight 6,515-yard layout. Wcs fliis, 31-year-old part-time pro from West Caldwell, N.J., leads with a sizzling 66 and right behind him are Bill Casper, back in action after a three-month layoff because of an injured left hand, 67; Jerry Pittman, 68, and 13 other players knotted at 69. They include Bob Goalby, the 1962 ICO victor; Art Wall, whom Goalby beat in a playoff; Doug Ford, and Tony Lema. Nicklaus is tied with 20 players at 73 and Boros is knotted with 10 at 74.

Grid Training Camp No Resort By FRANK ECK AP Nowsfeaturos Sporls Editor FAIRFIELD, Conn. (AP) — Those who play football for a living say It's a sport for men. They call baseball the "round ball game" for boys. They may have something there — even before the season starts, Both sports emphasize presea- 1 son training. But the resemblance ends there. Compare, for Instance, the training routines of the Nesv York Yankees in sunny Florida and the New York Giants here at Falrfleld University. Lust spring, ttiose Yankees wlKi didn't stuy with the main contingent at Fort Laudor- dale, lived with tljeJr wives Una kiddie* »t rented resort homes (or six weeks. • There was time lor fishing and golf. Workouts lasted four hours (10 a.m. to 2 p.m. for each of 10 official training days before the exhibition games start. They played 30 exhibitions, doing considerable traveling by bus, Those players who were not taking part Jn the exhibitions re. mained in camp for three-hour morning workouts. A Giant football camp is vastly different. IVtves we tpnedt There li no curd-playing, no blaring radios. The players tiro secluded like monks. They sleep und take three meals u day In flic same building. There is a strict U p.m. curfew. Football players put in a full day from 7:15 a.m. rise and shine until 6:15 p.m. steak dinner. Often there are meetings or film showings of plays until 9 p.m. There are five Interruptions ol routine for exhibition games. In camp, the players are off Saturday afternoon and Sunday. Those who leave camp must be back by midnight Sunday. Here's a rundown on a typical day at a football camp: 7:15 a,m, — First and last call to rise. 7:45 — Breakfast. 9:15 — Meeting In gym, get taped and suited up. In the interim coaches hold their own meeting on plans for the day. 8:30 — Squad reports for practice until U. 11:00—One hour break for nap or personal business. Noon—Lunch of soup, cold cuts, fruit and iced tea, • l:Q(WCat nap. ?;OJ~Second meeting, For some, individual instruction, 3:OQ -T Ankles or wrists taped in groups of threes; some have whirpool treatment. 3:45—Second workout of 75 minutes. 6:15 — Dinner, following by a third meeting or showing of game films or specific plays. Everything is run to the minute under Sherman, who has won two Eastern Division titles in Ills two years as head coach, and he has strict rules. Breaking them is costly. There is a fine of $50 to $100 for missing a scheduled appointment; $250 for not being taped up and $500 for losing a playbook. The playbook Is a player's Important possession for H .oonlujiis as many as 100 variations of game plays. Practice is divided into groups, each handled by an assistant coach. Kyle Rote works with offensive backs. They fight run off four backs. They might run off four utes then work on passing vs. defense for another 20. Ken Kayanaugh handles offensive ends, practicing such patterns as'stance plays, square outs, down and In, a zlg in, or a square in, a circle and shoot or the flare. Player-coach Jim Patton handles defensive backs on technique. Player - coach Andy Robustelli works the defensive line and Ed Kolman the offensive line. I'ractlco often onds with 60 sqimdmcn getting together und forming It-man units for u 10-ininuto soriinmagu. Veterans such as Robustelli, Patton, Frank Gifford, Y..A. Tittle and Alex Webster, among the 10 over 30 in age, know how to prepare for the long season and they pace themselves in s u m m e r workouts, Coaches know what these men can do so there's no reason for them to pull a muscle or gel a icrnia with a blocking sled or tackling dummy in August. They'll be needed in December. "Our concept," says Coach Sherman, "Is that these are men and we want to treat them as such. Each man has a stake in every game. We want his relaxed confidence." Players coming to the Giants from other teams say they have never seen a training camp such as Sherman runs. They are impressed with his organization. Ken Strong is the only man at Fall-field who has had a taste of baseball and football camps. He came out of NYU with a chance to make the Detroit Tigers as an outfielder but broke his wrist. He made fame kicking and running with the Giants of 30 years ago and now helps Giant place kickers. Says Strong: "Football is a lot rougher. In baseball they try to loosen muscles. In football they train to toughen muscles." "Our training camps never have been and nover will Im weight-reducing clinics for fat men," says Sherman. "Almost everyone reports fit and ready to go. J'liose uliu an; not ready have very short careers with UN." One player sought to sign his '63 contract in May. The Giants saw he carried excess weight and told him to work out privately then report back on July 1 to talk contract. When the player returned he said a minor leg injury prevented him from working out. One week later the player was traded. He was popular Rosy Gricr. II i s TRINITY SPEEDWAY Granite City, III.

If you make the grade, the pay is good in either sport. But football costs more in sweat — especially in training camp. DADDY DELIGHTED WARWICK, R. I.—Fourth child of Island Open Gold Champion Tuesday, a Mr. and Mrs. Ronnie Quinn of West clay before she was born at Kent County Warwick rested last night in the cup Hospital. She's not named yet. (AP Daddy won when he became Rhode Wirephoto) Outdoors with Harold Brand Took K\K Northern A northern pike nearly as big as he angler was taken recently by Robert Simpson 10, while vaca- ioning with his parents, Dr. and Mrs. liaymond K. Simpson, 2212 Mwards St., at Deer Trail Lodge on Triangle Lake near Ely, Minn. The pike weighed 25 pounds and was 45'/a inches long. The fish was aken on a sucker minnow and it :ook young Robert 25 minutes to land it. Skiers Came Close Fast speedboats and water skiers are practically ruining fish- iig and oil from the engines is polluting thc> waters of Lake Ilills- )oro, reported Mrs. Frank Mlko. asek, !)7 Rosewood Lane, Rosewood Heights, While fishing last week in the lake, which is about two miles long und one quarter nile wide, a fast speedboat pull- Jig a skier passed within 10 feet of their small rowboat. "Such hazardous operation of a fast boat and skiing endangers the lives of others," Mrs. Mikolasek said. "Certainly there are laws prohibiting such antics." "Lake Hillsboro provides a reservoir of water for the city of Hillsboro," she continued. "During a recent test of the water, there was so much oil in it that it failed to pass tests for purity in drinking. A few weeks ago my husband and I landed some bass there that actually had oil under its scales." Illinois Boating Act The Illinois Boat Registration and Safety Act of July 1, 1961 states that no person shall oper- ats any motorboat, manipulate any water skis, aquaplane, or similar device in such a manner as to endanger life or limb, or damage the property of any person. We also know that there are state laws prohibiting water pollution but whether that would include the oil contamination from operation of outboard motors has yet to be defined. We have caught fish in the Mississippi River that asted like coal oil and had to be thrown away. Certainly no city would want a water supply with mi oily taste. That would be a problem for Hillsboro officials to solve. The Mikolaseks took 138 crappie (luring their fishing trip to the lake last week and have taken up to 300 and 400 on oother occasions. None of them were extra large but were of pan size. Mrs. Mikolasek says many persons won't believe they catch so many fisii but friends and neighbors have seen them dress out the fish for LAWN-BOY LAWN MOWERS COMI'LKTK SELECTION CLARK BOAT & MOTOR 313 W.

Scored Trout A nine-pound rainbow trout was among the many taken by Leroy Moore, Rosewood Heights during a recent two-day float trip on the White River with his wife, Sally, and Leroy's parents.Mr. and Mrs. Raymond Moore. The senior Moore retired from Shell Oil Co. five years ago and moved to Bull Shoals, Ark., where he operated a fishing resort for awhile. The two Moore families floated in separate John boats from below Bull Shoals Dam about 17 miles in one day to Carter, Ark. They returned to the dam and refloat- ed the same area on the second day. "It was no problem to take the limit of six trout a day," Leroy said. "All the fish were taken on earthworms by casting into the river and letting them drag behind the boat. When the fish hit, it was just like snagging a log." Best Troiii Fishing Now Leroy is a licensed guide for Arkansas and averages fishing there once a month. Trout season closes there Sept. 30 and doesn't open again until March 1. "Now is the time for best trout fishing [here," Leroy said. "Bull Shoals Lake waters are too warm for good fishing. The waters above the dam are 294 feet deep. Big rainbows are taken at about 40 to 50 feet of depths. When you look one that deep and try to land it is when you think that you have a whale." 1VIANY USED BOATS & MOTORS Complete $ CAJC and Outfits v9w up HAROLD'S PLACE 131 E.
