Doug Camilli's two-run homer in the second off loser Al Jackson was all the margin Drysdale needed. Rookie Dick Calmus, a 19-year- old right-hander, pitched five innings of one-bit relief to win the nightcap. Pete Richert, who start- ed, was lifted for a pinch hitter in the fifth.

The Green Bay Packers shot them down, calmly, methodically and quite thoroughly. So It now looks like chapter three'in the saga of the two-time champions from Wisconsin, with or without Paul Hornung. There were many who thought the chinks were showing in the Green Bay armor when they were surprised by the College All-Stars in the annual game at Chicago. But the Packers bounced back against Pittsburgh 27-7 in an exhibition game a week later and looked like the terrors of old in 31-10 romp 3ver the hopeful Cowboys in the Cotton Bowl at Dallas Saturday. Probably the most impressive feature of the Packer performance was the running of fullback Jim Taylor. He gave his ailing knee its first heavy test and reported .it fine and dandy. He picked up 86 yards on 12 rushing attempts and picked up another 16 on one pass reception. In other NFL games, the New York Giants rallied for a 24-21 edge over Detroit and Baltimore routed the Browns 21-7 in a uni- Ron Harris Named Coach At Canton JC Ron Harris, former basketball coach at Edwardsville High, has been appointed head basketball coach at Canton Junior College.

Last year, the Tigers finished third in the Southwestern Conference behind Collinsville and Belleville and ran up a 16-7 overall record. Joe Lucco, long-time coach at Edwardsville, replaced Harris. The 28-year-old Harris will have a rebuilding job'to do at Canton, a school which ran up a 22-4 record a year ago. The majority of the squad has graduated. Harris will also teach American history and physical education. mie doubleheader that drew record football crowd oi 83,218 to* 6 Cleveland's Municipal Stadium and Minnesota whipped the Los Angeles Rams 27-3 at Los Angeles.

Cards Keep Eye on Rain, Meet Giants ST. LOUlS (AP)—The St. Louis Cardinals are hopeing the weatherman will give them a better break today than he did Sunday, when the Cardinals and the San FVancisco Giants were rained out. The umpires waited for more than two hours in hopes that the showers would subside over Busch Stadium, buf to no avail, flain continued to come first in a downpour and then in an agonizing drizzle. Cardinal officials said 21,000 'ans, many from out-of-state, had •o go home without having a chance to see if the Cardinals could sweep the three-game series and get an undisputed hold on second place. Players in both dressing rooms waited anxiously to see if the New York Mets could help them, but the Mets dropped a doubleheader to the league-leading Los Angeles Dodgers. The Dodgers are now six full games ahead. In today's game, Bob Gibson (13-7) will face the Giants' Jack Sanford (12-12).
