Skimpy Crowd Sees AFL Game in KC Hy DON WEISS Associated I'ress S|H>rto Writer Looks like the same situation for the Kansas City Chiefs as they had when they were the Dallas Tcxans: Lots of talent, not enough fans. Only 6,865 turned up Friday night at their new rent-free diggings in Kansas City to st'p the defending American Football League champions rip the Denver Broncos 30-16 behind the eye-popping play of a couple; of rookies and a bright sophomore quarterback. In two home exhibition appearances, the Chiefs have drawn slightly more than 12,500—approximating the number of ticket requests the Green Bay Packers, the "other" champs, had to refuse for tonight's sell-out game with the Chicago Bears at Milwaukee. Last week it was Eddie Wilson, Bob Gibson Stills Colts' Hitting, 4-1 HOUSTON, Tex. (AP) — Bob Gibson of the St. Louis Cardinals allowed the Houston Colts only five hits Friday night as he led his learn to a 4-1 triumph. Combined with Warren Spahn's 6-1 victory over the. Los Angeles Dodgers for Milwaukee, the win tightened the National League pennant race. The combination cut the Dodgers' first-place lead over the runnerup Cardinals to 5'/a games. For Gibson, his 14th triumph against seven defeats was almost routine. Me lias now beaten the Colts four times this season and came within one strikeout of matching his 13 strike outs against Houston in June. The Cardinals scored four runs in the first and then settled back while Gibson fired away. Curl Flood led off the first with a walk and Bill White bunted safely, the first of his four hits. The pair then pulled a double steal, and when catcher John Bateman's throw went into cen- lerfield, Flood scored, Ken Boyer walked and George Altman doubled home two runs and then scored on Julian Javier's single Cardinals (4) Houston (1) Player AH R 11 Player AB R II Flood 3 1 0 Spongier 3 0 1 Groat 400 Runnels 400 Maxvlll 000 Wynn 402 414 Doteman 400 3 1 0 SUtub 4 0 the second-year quarterback from Arizona, with a 23 for 32 passing show in a 35-21 victory over Oakland. This time It was two light' ning-fast rookies, former Olympic sprinter Stone Johnson of Grumbling and Charlie Warner of Prairie View College in Texas. With the Brones leading 7-0 in the first quarter, Warner grabbed the Denver kickoff four yards deep in his end zone and- flashed all the way for the matching (ouch down. Then, after Gene Mingo's field goal had shovn.J Denver in front again, Wilson clicked with Johnson on a 32-yard pass play for the go-ahead Kansas City touchdown. By the time the Broncos scored again, there was one second left in the game and Kansas City had a 30-10 lead. Action—and attendance—picks up tonight.
