Two Trotters Wear 'Masks' at DuQuoin DU QUOIN, HI. (AP) - The ighly regarded filly Cheer Honey B. F. Coaltown — second un- ificial choices in the Hambleton- an — were undergoing treatment /ith medicated oxygen but were onsidered sure starters for 'ednesday's premier stake for 3- ear-old trotters. The field of 10 colts and 4 fillies, eaded by the 2-5 favorite Speedy cot, appeared ready for the $115,49 Kentucky Derby of harness acing. The only question before he first mile heat at the fast, bet- ss Du Quoin mile oval goes off t 2:30 p.m./EST, was whether ttle Joe O'Brien would be able > drive Star Act. O'Brien, 46, winner of the Ham- etonian in 1960 with Blaze Hanver and in 1955 with Scott rost was on crutches with a knee njury. Of more vital concern .was badly sprained right wrist. He was hurt in a spill a week go at Chicago's Sportsman's 'ark. He was not expected to decide intil Wednesday morning wheth er he could drive Star Act. Cheer Honey, the 2-year-olc illy trotting champion of 1962 and vinner of five out of eight starts his season, was about cured of a virus condition which hit her at Du Quoin last weekend. Twice a day the daughter of florican, with winnings of $113,014 has an improvised mask placed over her nose and breathes.medi- cated oxygen mist for a half hour. B F. Coaltown, who is 4-1 with Cherry Honey in unofficial odds, ;ets the same treatment. He has had a throat infection for a month but it is fully under control and the oxygen now is used more as precaution. Speedy Scot, whose trainee driver Ralph Baldwin will be seeking his first Hambletonian triumph in 13 attempts, remained the center of attraction. The strapping bay colt won the Yonkers Futurity, the first leg of the triple crown series which includes the Hambletonian and the Kentucky Futurity in Lexington Oct. 4, and was conceded a -fine chance from the No. 3 post position to smash the race's mile record of 1:58 2-5 set by Harlan Dean at Du Quoin in 1961.

By JOE UKICIILEH Associated Press Sports Writer NEW YORK (AP) — Many laughs and several funny stories emanated from last Wednesday night's Cleveland-New York brawl at Yankee Stadium but some bitterness lingers, too. The Yankees' Joe Pepitone and the Indians' Fred Whltfield, among the chief combatants in the melee precipitated by a bean-ball between the rival pitchers, were kidding about it the following afternoon but Manager Birdie Tebbetts of Cleveland indicated not everybody is laughing. Certainly not Larry Brown, the Indians' rookie shortstop, who needed four stitches to close up a spike wound on the heel of his left foot. Nor Dick Howser, Brown's injured predecessor; who suffered a much less serious spike wound. "Such fights cast a long shadow," said Tebbetts, who majored in psychology while at Providence College. "Some scars take a long time to heal. "I think the Yankees were, silly to get into a fuss with us. They're winning and have nothing to gain by it. Our guys are not likely to forget it. "Nothing may come of it for awhile. But some day, some year, at an appropriate time, they'll remember and it could prove costly to the Yankees." On the lighter side is Yankee the Giants Monday, tl was the fifth straight time the Cardinals have defeated the Giants, and the 10th time in 16 games this season. The victory moved the rials Into second place 1 ahead of the Giants fliid to within 5'Xj games of the Dodgers. The Cincinnati Reds defeated Los Angeles 34, The Cardinals won it in the ninth with three runs off ID-game Winner Juan Marichal (19-7). Carl Sawatski led off the inning with a Walk and singles by Curt Flood and Dick Groat drove in the tie- breaking run, All infield out and a single by Ken Boyer drove in the final two runs. Marlcha) had pitched shutout ball for six innings before the Cardinals found the range. Ron Taylor, who pitched only one-third of an inning, was credited with his eighth victory against six losses. The Giants gave Marichal a 2-0 lead in the sixth with two unearned runs off starter Ernie Broglio. The Cardinals scored one in the seventh and went ahead 3-2 when George Altman drilled a two-out, two-run home run in the eighth. The Giants tied the score 3-3 in the bottom of the eighth on Felipe Alou's single. Tonight, Curt Simmons (11-6) will face the Giants' Jack Sanford (12-12).

BALTIMORE — Pitchers Dave McNally (left) and Wes Stock of the Baltimore Orioles scratch their heads as they look at the bat rack. And, well they might. Neither has ever made a hit in the major leagues. McNally is O-for-32 and Stock is O-for-39. Even worse, they're roommates. But they never seem to tire of talking of their hitting (?) exploits.

Because, in a sense, there's NOTHING to report. O-and-0 doesn't refer to the first initial of the players' names. It stands for the number of hits Oriole pitchers Wes Stock and Dave McNally have collected during their major league careers, That's right — None, Stock, a relief pitcher who doesn't go to bat too often, has gone Q-for-Hc) during his five s sons in the majors. McNally, a rookie, is O-for-32, What's more, they'r(s roommates. Most pitchers like to talk about their hitting prowess. With Stock and McNally, it's almost a run ning word battle. Here's a sample locker room conversation; Stock: "I concede I'm not a good hitter. But I'm improving-' McNally: "So am I. I struck out 15 times in my first 18 at bats his year — and none since." Stock: "That's because the pitchers found out you were a dud, and they're laying the ball in there for you now." Stock: "I was a good hitter in high school. | batted clean-up," McNally: "You'd be a bad hitter even in high school now." Stock:, "I got a hit in Puerto Rico last winter," McNally: "That doesn't count. When did you get your last one in the States?" Stock: "In 1960, while playing for Miami, When did you get one?" McNally: "Last May, whjle playing with Elrnira. I got five In the first month of the season-* and none since." "There's not much difference between terrible and bad," said pitcher Mike McCormlck.

StrikeouU-i-Koufax, Los Ange* 329; Drysdale, Los Angeles, International Soccer Star Treated Well CARACAS, Venezuela (AP) — International soccer star Alfredo Di Stefano, held for two days by pro-Communist terrorists seeking world attention for their cause, says he was frightened but treated well. "They cocked their guns every time I moved," Di Stefano said shortly after he was released near the Spanish embassy Monday. But he said he was assured he would not be harmed. Di Stefano, center toward for Spain's Real Madrid team here for the Little World Cup games, was abducted from his hotel room Saturday by four agents of the Armed Forces of National Liberation (FALN), which is trying to overthrow the democratic government of President Romulo Betancourt. Soccer buffs viewed the kidnap- ing the same way baseball fans would react to the disappearance of Mickey Mantle with the New York Yankees in a hot'pennant race. The kidnap band was headed by Meximo Canales, an Interior Ministry spokesman said. Canales, a Cuban Communist, engineered the FALN's spectacular hijacking of the Venezuelan freighter Anzote- gul in February, This shjp was recovered in Brazil. The spokesman said the kidnap- ing was not just a Venezuelan affair, but an operation of international communism and opponents of the Franco government in Spain. mere five hits as the Cincinnati Reds survived a two-nien-on4he- same-base situation and posted a 3-1 victory. It was the Dodgers' fourth loss in the last five games, and trimmed their lead to 5% games over second-place St. Louis. Los Angeles now has managed to score only four runs in the last 35 innings and collected just 36 hits in five games. The only Dodger regular hitting over .300 is Tommy Davis, the defending batting champion who is stroking away at a .328 clip. No Dodger is among the leaders in home runs or runs batted in and collectively the team is hitting a meek .250. The Reds pulled a page from the Dodgers' book; and wound - up with two men on second base in the sixth inning after Vada Pinson singled and , Frank Robinson walked. Pinson was picked off, and in the rundown, both runners stood staring at each ether on second. Robinson was ruled out. hits off the servings of Georgia Yost, only one of which figured in the scoring. Four errors by the Rockottes, three of them coming In Alton's two - run first inning, helped the Laker cause. Bev Conaway, who had thrown a no-hitter against the Rockettes Friday in evening the series at one game apiece, was not quite as sharp Monday night, but was tough with runners on. She allowed three hits, struck out three and walked four. Miss Conaway helped her own causu considerably with a two-run lioinor over the centerfielder's head in (he sixth Inning. That gave her a 4-1 lead and eased the pressure. The Lakers capitalized on some loose fielding by the Rockettes to take a 2-0 margin in the top of the first (the Rockettes were home team). Star Travis was hit by a pitch. She pilfered second and when the ball ,was thrown into centerfield by the catcher, she streaked home with .the first run. ' ,,'••' , : The second run of the Inning came when, with Betty Onofrey on second, Sandy Grlmsley's grounder to short was booted, allowing MU» Onofroy to score. Collinsville r s only run came in the fourth when Mary Baumgartner scored on an infield out.

The Cardinals took the runner- up spot by beating San Francisco 6-3, dropping the Giants to third, 6% back, and preventing Juan Marichal from posting his 20lh victory. Milwaukee whipped Houston 11-7 in the only other game scheduled. In the only American League action, second-place Minnesota remained 11% games behind the New York Yankees by splitting a twi-night doubleheader with Washington. The Twins won 5-2 on consecutive seventh-inning homers by Harmon Killebrew and Bob Al- lispn before the Senators took the nightcap 7-3 as. Dick Phillips drove in four runs. O'Toole, 16-11, had lost eight of his last 10 decisions, but got the only runs he needed when Gordy Coleman tagged Don Drysdale, 16 15, for a two-run homer in the fourth inning. The Dodgers scored in the bottom half on a double by Willie Davis and a single by Tommy Davis, but that svas it. The Reds' final run crossed in the eighth when Tommy Harper raced home from first base on a single by Pinson,,The Cardinals won with a three- run ninth-inning uprising against Marichal, 19-7, A walk \o Carl Sawatski and singles by Curt Flood and Dick Groat scored the tie-breaking run.
