Either Ray Sadecki (7-8) or Lew Burdette (8-9) will pitch for the. Cardinals. Johnny Podres (118) Is scheduled to start for Los Angeles in the opener of a three- game series. The Dodgers are in first place, 5% games ahead of the Cardinals and 6% ahead of the third-place Giants. It was an 8-7 come-trom-behind victory Monday over San Francisco, moving the Cardinals past the slumping Giants into seconc place, on 'the basis of Ken Beyer's slugging and Julian Javier's daring base running. Trailing 5-3, the Giants took a 7-5 lead in the top of the ninth on a run-scoring single by Willie Maj's and a two-run triple by Felipe Alou off relief pitcher Sam Jones. But the Cardinals struck in the bottom of the ninth. Bill White walked and Boyer drilled his 17th home run — and his second of the game — to the pavilion roof in right field. Jack Fisher replaced Billy Hoeft on the 7nound and retired two batters before Javier singled. Tim McCarver then dropped a looping single into right field, and when Alou hobbled the ball, Javier streaked around (he bases with tlie winning run. The victory, which was credited to Jones (1-0), was the third in a row over the Giants. Jones, who ironically came back to the Cardinals from the minor leagues recently after being traded to the Giants a few years ago in exchange for White, was the fifth Redbird pitcher. San Fran.

By MIKE KATHET Associated Press Sports Writer The St. Louis Cardinals, who ast won a pennant when Stan Musial was a kid of 25, move into Los Angeles tonight for a showdown struggle with the National jeague-leading Dodgers after flushing off San Francisco with two slasts, a bloop and a bobble. Seeking their first flag since 1946, in what would be a fitting tribute to the retiring Musial, the Cardinals took the first step Monday, moving into second place with an 8-7 victory over the Giants triggered by Ken Boyer's pair of two-run homers. Boyer's shots in the seventh and ninth innings kept the Cardinals in contention in a wild game that ended with Julian Javier racing home from first base with the winning run in the last of the ninth as Felipe Alou bobbled Tim McCarter's bloop single. It left the Cardinals 5M> games behind the Dodgers and dropped the Giants 6M; back—1V£ games in front of surging Philadelphia. The Phillies beat the New York Mets 1-0 behind .Dennis Bennett's five- hitter for ' their eighth straight victory. In the only other game scheduled in either league, Cleveland used a pair of three-run homers by rookie Max Alvis in consecutive trips to wallop Boston 8-3. The Cardinals, are expected to send either young Ray Sadecki or veteran Lew Burdetto against the Dodgers' Johnny 'Podres tonight.

Northwestern, Arkansas mid Oklahoma are fitted the top 10 In the country by pru-klckoff pollsters and, us oiui wit put it, Missouri should bo ranked fourth by default. '' Kansas and Nebraska are strong again, Kansas State Improved, and Idaho picked to pocket the Big Sky Conference crown. Only Oklahoma State and Iowa State appear weak sisters n a "really big" Big Eight Conference.

First of nil, there Is Devlne and an excellent coaching staff Devine has never had a losing season as a head coach in college football, either at Arizona State or Missouri. The Tigers have run up a 64-15-5 record in eight years under his tutelage. Secondly, while the front line has been weakened somewhat, last year's alternates and a good freshman crop have moved into Lhe vacant spots. Sure we'll miss Hltchler and Vermtllion," line coach A Onofrio said Monday at a press luncheon in St. Louis, "but we have Oliver (Gene), Brown (Bobby) and Lukinaki (Ralph), and our alternate line is bigger than ever." The center and end spots .will have to conio through though," ho added. End coach Charles Mackey thinks he has that problem well n hand with veteran Sevcik and newcomer Tom Lynn in addition to alternate. George Seals. "Lynn looked real good in spring practice," Mackey said He started off as our number seven end and worked his way up to the first squad. He has a real good attitude." The starting backfield has Underhill at fullback and sophomore Gary Lane at quarterback in addition lo the usual number of hard-running Missouri halfbacks. Lane, a Wood River High athlete, who playefl for Orv Yocum's Oilers, missed the freshman season due to illness (mononucleosis) hut took over the first unit of the Tigers In spring training. At 6-1, 192 pounds, Lane, an education major, is being pushed by Mike Jones, a junior, for the signal-calling role. Devine expressed his confidence Monday in his quarterback- ng duo. "We're going with Lane and Jones," he said. "They'll make mislakes early, bui we're still going to go with them." "Lane could be a very exciting running-passing kind of guy," he went on, '"but we'll just have to wait and see."

Commissioner Calls For Ring Cleanup MIAMI BEACH, Fla. (AP) — Members of the World Boxing Association agreed almost unanimously today with Commissioner Abe Greene's call for tight control of boxing to bring an end to "public mockery and ridicule," The fight businesses a "vast wasteland," dominated by one- shot promoters who take everything out of the sport but contribute nothing to its welfare, Greene told the convention. And if it is necessary to invite federal government control, Greene said he is all for it. The veteran commissioner has been speaking out against promotional cartels controlling the championships -and' has urged passage of the- 1 late Sen. Estes Kefauver's bill to bring the sport under a federal commissioner.

(AP Wirephoto) Ortiz Next Target For Anxious Lane W ally Butts Gets $3,600,000 In Damages BULLETIN ATLANTA (AP) — A fed eral court jury awarded Waily Butts a $3,600,000 judgment today In Ms $10 million libel suit against the Saturday Evening Post. ATLANTA (AP)—Twelve men •eturned today to a federal dis- rict court jury room to ponder 'or the second day the $10-million ibel suit brought by Wally Butts against publishers of the Saturday Evening Post. , The jury mulled over Ihe suit for nearly six hours Monday without reaching a verdict. Court was •ecessed and the jurors sent to a lotel for the night. ' Butts is suing.Curtis Publishing Co. for an article in which the Post said he leaked information about University of Georgia foot- jail plans to the Alabama, head coach, Paul (Bear) Bryant, be:ore their schools played in 1962. The jury room is across the hall from the courtroom where the trial has run for more than two weeks. Jurors spent the night in 12 separate hotel rooms with two deputy marshals outside their doors. Butts, stocky and greying at 58, remained at the counsel table Monday during most of. the jury's deliberations. His wife and three daughters went to a nearby hotel to rest shortly after the case went to the jury at 2:40 p.m. Two of the daughters returned later. Dressed in his customary dark suit, the former Georgia athletic director sat most of the time with his hands clasped. Judge Lewis R. Morgan, in his charge, told the jury that truth is the complete defense in a libel suit. The Post article is libelous per se, or on its face, he said, but "substantial truth" of parts of the article containing what he called the "string of the libel" would be a complete defense. "If you find that Butts did give information to Bryant which could have affected the outcome or the score of the football game, you will find for the defendant company," Morgan said. He said that if Curtis had failed to prove the truth of the article, the jury should rule In Butts' favor and fix the amount of damages he would receive. A person with a bad reputation, Morgan said, would not be entl tied to the same damages as one with a good reputation even if libel were proved. Some University of Georgia officials testified Butts' character was bad. By JEKRY GREEN Associated Press Sports Writer SAGINAW Mich. (AP)—Kenny Lane finally has recognition as world lightweight champion, If only in the 58,266 square miles of Michigan, and he's anxious to fight Carlos Ortiz. anywhere for the (itle covering the rest 'of the globe. "Ortiz can call me the chal- enger, I don't care," said Lane after winning the Michigan version of the lightweight championship by outpointing Paul Armstead in a unanimous 15-round decision Monday night. "But I'll call him the same thing," Lane added. Lane, the World Boxing Association's No: 2 contender from Muskegpn, Mich., received strong backing on the cards' of all three officials in his victory over the 'irst-ranked Armstead from Los Angeles. Referee Lou Jallos gave' Lane, 134%, a total of 146 points In Michigan's 10-point must system, :o 143 for Armstead, who weighed 135. Judge Don Dilley gave Lane he verdict 147-141 and Judge West Tebeau scored it 1.46-138. The Associated Press card favored Lane 145-144. "We'll give Ortix. plenty of offers and see what he comes up with," said Lane. "We'll have to see what comes out of the WBA now." Lane, a southpaw counter- puncher, has charged Ortiz and the WBA with giving him a runaround in bids for a title fight. Because of it, Michigan withdrew from the WBA in June. The WBA also stripped Ortiz of his title in June for failure to defend, 'but restored the championship Sunday. Ortiz was reinstated as champion with the stipulation he sign by the end of the year to fight the L,ane-Armstead winner. Lane and Ortiz have fought twice before, each winning once.
