"I've never won a pennant and had it affect the next year so I don't know why losing one should" Alston said quietly Sunday, after the Dodgers' lead had shrunk to 3*/4 games over St. Louis. "When these fellows are pitching a ball or swinging a bat I doubt very much if they're thinking about last year. "I feel pretty good—we're three and a half in front, aren't we?" But he didn't say that it was nearly four weeks since a pursuer had been that close to the Dodgers. Or that the Dodgers lost in '62 though they were four games ahead with only seven to play. Spahn Wins 20th Game PHILADELPHIA (AP) — Warren Spahn had just defeated the Philadelphia Phillies for his 20th victory of the year, tying the fabled Christy Mathewson's National League record of 13 20-victory seasons, when someone said, "Hey, old man, when are you going to quit?" "I can't afford to quit, need the money," said Spahn, who is base ball's highest paid pitcher. "You can't afford to quit," interrupted catcher-first baseman Gene Oliver. "We can't afford to have you quit. How can we give away 20 games?" The banter swirled around the clubhouse of the Milwaukee Braves Sunday as the 42-year-old Spahn received congratulations on his latest pitching feat. Reminded that Stan Musial was calling it a caiwr at 42, Spahn jc-sted, "He can afford it. He's a rich man." Then, in a more serious vein, Spahn said winning 20 games a season meant job security. "It means I have a job next year," he said. out of four games from Pittsburgh. It marked the llth victory in 12 games for the Cardinals. The San Francisco Giants helped to make Sunday even a brighter day for the Cardinals by edging the Dodgers 5-4. The Giants' victory moved the Cards 3'/2 games behind the faltering Dodgers. The Dodgers go to Pittsburgh Tuesday for a three-game series. The Cardinals' Julian Javier hit a two-run homer in the third inning to keep the Redbird's pennant hopes alive. Curt Flood followed Javier's home run with a double. He took third on a sacrifice fly. Ken Boyer drove in the winning run with an infield hit. The Pirates picked up single runs in the fourth and sixth. The first run came on a double by Smoky Burgess and a single by Willie Stargell. The final run came in the sixth on consecutive singles by Bill Virdon and Roberto Ciemente, followed by Burgess' second double. Ernie Brolio picked up his 15th win. He's lost 8. In tonight's game in St. Louis the Cardinals will have Curt Sim mons (13-7) going against the Chi cago Cubs' Larry Jackson (14-13) ST. LOUIS (AP)—The St. Louis baseball Cardinals said Sunday night X-rays taken of shortstop Dick Groat's left side proved neg ative and Groat should be back in the lineup in a few days. Groat was taken to suburban St. Louis County Hospital Sunday night after the Cardinals returned from Pittsburgh. X-rays taken at the hospital confirmed similar ones taken Friday in Pittsburgh, the Cardinals spokesman said. "It's just going to be a matter of time." Dr. I. C. Middleman, the Cardinals' surgeon said. "Groat "Groat probably will find it will be pretty sore fore awhile when he tries to swing a bat, or throw, but he will be back soon." Groat was injured in the first game of a doubleheader Friday night in Pittsburgh. He was replaced in the line-up by Dal Maxville. Maxvill accounted for one of the Cardinals' three runs in Sunday's 3-2 triumph over the Pirates. SalemFavoredtoCop North Egypt Crown Jack Nicklaus Wins World Series of Golf AKRON, Ohio (AP) — Tired.

Today, Roy O'Neal, sports editor of the Carmi Times, looks at the North Egypt Conference). By ROY O'NEAL Sports Editor Carmi Times C/.RMI, II'. (AP) — It's the same old story in the North Egypt Conference this fall. Coach Joe Thomas' Salem Wildcats are favored to grab the football title. But casing Salem in the favorite's role meets approval of coaches from the other seven schools. The Wildcats have been a heavy choice the past three years, but the Wildcats again this season. Most coaches agree. But like those who have followed the North Egypt gridiron, they too have learned to expect the unexpected. Much like the National League Baseball, the NEC has a reputation of passing its league championships around. Since 1957, no less than six schools — Carmi, Fairfield, Flora, Lawrenceville, Mount Carmel and Salem —have either won or salvaged a piece of tiie ca!-e. That leaves only Olney and Bridgeport, with the former regarded as a serious threat this year. all-state potential. Salem speed is not confined to the backfield, all the more reason the forward wall is one of the best in the conference. In Jon Mason, a bruising 195- pound senior fullback, Olney 1 s Tigers probably have the finest all- around player in the NEC. Rated high on many all- state listings a year ago, Mason can go for the short or long gain and has few peers as a linebacker. He is the son of Olney Coach Jean Mason. The Tigers have more than the father-son team going for them.

It changed baseball and ruined the American These days the Yankees— who had never seen a pennant until the purchase of Babe Ruth— grow their own left-handers, and win the pennant every year. This, year's pennant clinching— the fourth straight, 13th of 15, 28lh sice 1921— should come along before another weekend rolls around. In case the suspense is killing you, the magic number is now four. The Yankees' newest left-handed pitching star, Al Downing, moved them a game closer to the World Series Sunday with a 5-3 victory over the Detroit Tigers, his 12th of the year and fourth in a row. The Chicago White Sox swept a doubleheader from Minnesota, and moved into second place ahead of the Twins, 14 J /2 games behind the Yankees. The White Sox won 5-2 and 5-6. In other American League »ames, Steve Barber failed in a )id for No. 20 as the Boston Red iox whipped the Baltimore Orioles I 6-3, Cleveland topped Washington 5-2 and the Kansas City Athletics edged the Los Angeles Angels 2-1. In the National League, the San Francisco Giants tripped the Los Angeles Dodgers 5-4, hile the St. Louis Cards edged up with a 3-2 victory over Pittsburgh. Warren Spahn won his 20th for Milwaukee, 3-2 over Philadelphia, and the New York Mats took the Cincinnati Reds 3-2. Houston edged Chicago 2-1 in a night game. Downing is a 22-year-old who is not legally a rookie, although he pitched his first game this season on June 7, after he was called up from Richmond in the International League. He pitched only 10 big league innings in 1961 and 1962, for an 0-1 record, but spent enough time on the Yankee bench to lose his rookie standing. His World Series check won't bounce, however. The White Sox overcame a 4-0 deficit in the second game with four runs in he eighth inning and one in the ninth. The last two were the result of Minesota errors. Sunday hitter Charley Maxwell hit a double and single and killed a Minnesota rally with a great throw to the plate in the first game. 31 3 TTotuls 36 2 11 123456789 RHE 003000000 3 11 I 0 0 l> 1 0 1 0 0 0 2111 Packers Open Title Defense Saturday By BOB GttlCKN Associated Press Sports Writer Thp Farmers Almanac says tha it's going to be cold with the ix>s sibility of snow in Green Bay Wis., Dec. 29.

The Chiefs, league champion: last year as the Dallas Texans rode the passing of Len Dawson to a 59-7 rout of thp Broncos a Denver Saturday night. Tom Flores, hack in the pass ing wars after recovering from lung ailment, sparked the Oakland Raiders to a 24 13 upset Iriumpl over the Oilers at Houston, also in a Saturday night game, And on Sunday—Paul Ixiwe, out last year with a broken arm flashed 48 yards for the deciding touchdowns as the San Diego Chargers scored a 14-10 home victory over the Buffalo Bills, while (he Boston Patriots smothered (he New York Jets 38-1-1 at Boston. Drnvson threw four touchdown strikes as the Chiefs amassed 458 yards through the air in handing the Broncos their worst defeat in four AKL seasons. Duve Grayson added another Kansas City six-pointer, sprinting 99 yards with the kickoff following Denver's lone touchdown, and linebacker Sherrill Heudrick lumbered 38 yards into the end zone with an intercepted pass. Flores replaced Cotton Davidson in the second half at Houston with the Raiders behind 6-0 and quickly triggered a comeback with passes to Oakland's classy receivers, Art Powell and Bo Roberson. A spectacular pass play covering 85 yards, Flores to Powell, gave Oakland its clinching touch down in the closing period. Bob Mitinger's interception of Jack Kemp's pass led to the Chargers' first touchdown, scored from one yard out by Bob Jackson after a 32-yard gain on a Tobin Rote-to-Frank Kocourek pass. Lowe put it away in the third period when he got loose on his long run. The Patriots lost all five of their exhibition games — including one lo New York — had been hobbled :>y injuries, and were supposedly vulnerable on pass defense. But hey had little trouble with the Jets, the ex-Titans, who have been •eshuffled from top to bottom but •emain probably the league's vuakest entry, -. Olney has never won the title in the 34 years the conference has been in existence. The darkhorse could be the Mount Carmel Golden Aces. Coach Jim John returned 10 lettermen, including two of the loop's better halfbacks in Doyle Bradley and Steve Wiggins. The Aces also pack good experience in the line. At Carmi, the loss of two-time all-state tackle Bill Egbert will be keenly felt. Main problem confronting Coach Jim McDougal is developing a formidable line. Ineligibility of last year's leading ground gainer, halfback Rick Bradley, was also a damaging blow. Defending champion Flora, Fairfield, Lawrenceville and Bridgeport were hard hit by graduation. Flora has 16 lettermen, but few other than fullback John Keith saw much duty during t h e Wolves' undefeated campaign a year ago. Reports from Lawrenceville indicate a new coach Paul Restivo has succeeded in renewing interest which had been on the wane in recent years. However, most experts agree the Indians are a year away. A thumbnail analysis of the prospects in the NEC: Salem, the likely winner, with Olney and Mount Carmel battling it out for the runnerup spot, and the other five teams pretty much out of the picture.

Jacobs Wins Utah Open SALT LAKE CITY (AP)-Tommy Jacobs is back on the victory trail after a long detour, narrowly winning the $40,000 Utah Open Golf Tournament. Jacobs had to survive a charge by Don January and his own jitters to win first-place money of $6,400 in the tournament, his first victor)' since January 1962. The 28-year-old pro from Bermuda Dunes, Calif., posted a 33 and a 37 for a par 70 over the 6.984-yard Salt Lake Country Club course in Sunday's closing round for a total of 272. That was one stroke better than January, who had a final round 33-3568 after starting the day three strokes back of Jacobs and slipping as far back as five strokes at one point.
