'Hurricane' In TV Bout PITTSBURGH (AP)— Mustachioed Ruben (Hurricane) Carter, a Jam-bang style fighter, squares off tonight against Farid Salim in the first fight at Pittsburgh's Civic Arena since Cassius Clay knocked out Charley Powell last January. Tho bout also will ring down the curtain on the series of nationally televised Saturday night fights. Beginning Sept. 20 the fights will be telecast on Friday nights for the first time since the Yanks Easily Won Without Two Sluggers NEW YORK (AP) - That tht New York Yankees won the American League pennant sur prised no one. That they won i so easily—with Mickey Mantle out of action half the season anc Roger Mans nearly as long—sur prised a lot of people. An objective observer musl come to one of two conclusions: The American League hit a new low in weakness, or the Yankees hit a new high in team strength Certainly this is one of the strongest Yankee teams ever put together. It doesn't have the awe some power of the Yankee ma chines during the Ruth-Gehrig dynasty, the DiMaggio-Keller-Henrich period or even the early Mantle-Berra days. But it boasts a brilliant defense, exceptional font-line pitching and one of the strongest benches of any of the 27 previous Yankee pennant winners. "It was an over-all team effort, make no mistake about that," aid Ralph Houk, who has won pennants in each of his three j years as Yankee manager. With Mantle sidelined by a foot injury for 61 consecutive days and only occasionally in the line-up thereafter, and Maris out for long periods of time with a back and hand injury, the Yankee daily line-up was dotted with such benchwarmers as Hector Lopez, John Blanchard, Jack Reed, Harry Bright and Phil Linz. It was the Yankees' 28th pennant since 1921 and their fourth. Although an over-all team effort, the Yankee success story is due to tremendous individual ef- Highland Smothers Hawks, 19-0 CARROLLTON — The break. away ability of the Highland Bull•dogs proved too much a disad vantage to overcome Friday i night as the Hawks of Carrollton 1 opened their season with a 19-0 I loss.

Duff's kirk was good and Highland led 7-0 at the hit If. j In the third period speedster lleft halfback Dennis Immer galloped 53 yards for the second Bulldog marker and, in the final period with one second showing on the clock, Duft hit halfback Joe Hess with another bullet to round out the scoring. The outlook for Gerald Dlt- nuin's Hawks is not quite as bleak as the score might indicate. Carrollton rolled up 151 total yards, 122 of them on the ground. Friday night Carrollton is at Pawnee in another non-conference game while Highland visit:-i town to themselves and talking li- 7-fi. in the only other AFL game scheduled this weekend. San Diego's Tobin Rote and Boston's Babe Parilli, who alternated at quarterback for the Green Bay Packers in the early 1950's, led their teams to opening victories last weekend, each putting on an impressive passing performance. San Diego beat Buffalo 14-10 as Rote connected on 18 of 29 passing attempts for 260 yards, while Pa- rilli was 19 for 35 and 287 yards. Boston defeated New York 38-14. Denver and Houston were far from impressive; in their openers, the Broncos bowing to defending champion Kansas City 59-7 while the Oilers took a 23-14 licking by Oakl;uid and lost running back Billy Cannon in the process.

"Boat clubs at Quincy, Hannibal, Louisiana, and Clarksvillc were virtually deserted," Lammy said. "We saw only a few small skiffs and a few cruisers in the more than 250-mile trip. Apparently the boating season has ended for most warm-weather ski|> pers." On the return trip, the Lammys spent one night at Graf ton where their boat took on a two-inch layer of willow bugs. The Lammys tried flushing them off with a hose without success. They had to scrub them off with brooms and water. The odor of very dead and overripe fish, which the deceased bugs exude, was terrible, Lammy said. Honor Club Nomine* When the Lammys arrived at their dock off Piasa Creek they pulled into the slip and forgot to tie up. Their dog, Tinker, on a leash, ran onto the dock. Tinker began to whine but botli Lam- mys were preoccupied inside the boat and paid little attention. Soon they heard a splash. "I looked out and saw that our boat had pulled away from the dock also pulling Tinker into the water," Mrs. Uimmy .said. "The dog w;is swimming hard towards the boat to get back aboard." In-as-much as Lammy w a s skipper he is now a nominee to the Boners Club. Oust Guard Killings The Coast Guard Auxiliary says that official word from Washington is that a boat towing a skier musl count (he skier on board and carry a life saving device f o r him. Tell your friends. Two now regulations also have been issued by the Coast Guard: The first permits the use of a bracket or fixture displaying the identification numbers to be firmly attached on the forward half of a vessel of unconventional design. This method JB to be employed, or permanent superstructure is impossible because of the craft's u n c o n v e n t i o nal configuration. There is no change in the rule that the numbers appear on the forward half of the vessel, nor in the requirements of legibility, size and style of numerals and figures and the extent of their contrast with the background. The other rule provides that after Feb. 1, 1964, applications for Coast Guard numbers in states which have not assumed the responsibility for numbering pleasure boats will be sent directly to the Coast Guard, rather than the local Post Office. Applications for numbers will still be available from the Post Office. Boat Capacity Here is how to determine whether your boat is carrying excess weigh.! according to the Outboard Boating Club of America: Add the weight of your outboard motor (check manufacturer's specifications), battery, fuel (gasoline weighs six pounds a gallon), and normal operating gear, such as anchor, oars, radio, fire extinguisher and the like. Subtract this total from the forst by such as veteran left- hander Whited Ford, sophomore pitchers Jim Bouton and Al Downing, catcher Elston Howard, and first baseman Joe Pepitone. "Our greatest improvement was in pitching," Houk said. "I'll be honest with you. If anybody had told me last spring that Bill Stafford would win only four games, that Ralph Terry would barely win more games than he lost, and that Bud Daley would be out all year, I'd have been scared to manufacturer's recommended weight capacity usually found on a small plate near the transom. Never exceed the resulting total in weight of passengers and extra gear. Outhoard I'opularlty The popularity of outboards has caused a shift in the United Stales j Power Squadrons, according to j the. New York Times. inlx>ards have been traditioi.al in the Squadrons hut now membership is evenly divided among outboard and inboard owners, and out- hoards lead in numbers in some Squadrons. No More Tax Kefumls Gov. Otto Kernor has signed into law a series of bills which provide for the monthly tnuisfer of $42,000 from the Motor Fuel T;ix Fund to the State Boating Act Fund, and appropriate nearly $1 million from the latter for the construction of boating facilities. The legislation also ends the right of refund of slate gasoline taxes for marine users. start the season. "But Bouton and Downing came through better than anyone expected and Ford had a tremendous year. Also we got a lot of help from fellows like Hal Reniff, Steve Hamilton and Bill Kunke, and Stan Williams had a fine second half season after a disappointing beginning." Houk called Linz, the scrappy infield reserve, his key bench man. "Lopez, Blanchard, Bright and Reed have done everything we've asked of them and more," said Houk. "But Linz has made it possible for me not to movejmy men around too much. He can play any infield position and of late I've even given him a shot in the outfield. He can do a lot of things, and that includes swinging the bat." Houk also singled out his regulars for praise. "And don't forget Yogi Berra," added Houk. "He's done a wonderful job in support of Elston Howard behind the plate and he's hitting better than last year." What gave Houk his greatest thrill this year. "When Mantle walked up the plate after (il days on the shelf and hit thai pinch homer against Baltimore. It will take a long time before anything will match that."

Manager Walt Alston, renown for his economy of words, was very talkative. He seemed relaxed, and was amiable. Asked about the tremendous surge of the Cards, who beat Milwaukee and Warren Spahn Friday night, Alston saaid: "There's not a thing we can do about tile Cards until we get there."
