B-6 Alton Evening Telegraph T Cards d LOS ANGELES (AP) - Los Angeles Dodger pilchrrs n-w have a string of 18 score'ess innings working, thanks to hack-to-back shutout victories by Al Downing Tuesday nicht and Rill Singer's four-hit :',-0 decision over the, St. Louis Cardinals Wednesday night. But it was a shutout by iho Cardinals' Bob Gibson in the opening game of the series Monday evening which gave Singer the idea he might be working too slow.

LUT7 HOUSTON (AP) - The St. Louis Cardinals, shocked by the sudden death of defensive coach Chuck Drulis, try to concentrate on football in the Astrodome tonight against the Houston Oilers in an exhibition football game. Drulis collapsed and died Wednesday on the charter flight from St. Louis to Houston. The plane landed at Little Rock, Ark., where Drulis was pronounced dead. Record field expected for trap finals VANDALIA. Ohio (AP)— The pace changed today in the 73rd annual Grand American Trapshooting Tournament as the first of. the world's two largest handicap events was scheduled. Officials of the Amateur Trapshooting Association said they expected a record field of 2.400 to take part in the Preliminary Handicap and as vnajry as 3,100 in the Grand American, scheduled Friday. In the handicap events, the "unknown" shooters who very seldom win trapshooting events take the limelight. In the Wednesday Clay Target Championship of America, two stars of the trapline walked off with top honors. The men's championship was won by Wallace Irwin, 45, of Spartansburg, S.C., who calls himself "a real old duck hunter." The women's title went to Nadine Ljutic, 44, of Yakima, Wash., who is the wife of a gunsmith.

Lane wants zest added to baseball By AL DEN BESTE Associated Prtss Writer ALBUQUERQUE, N . M . (AP) — The American League Milwaukee Brewers' general manager says the Baseball Hall of Fame should be opened up to active ballplayers after 10 years of outstanding pay. Frank Lane spoke Wednesday at a press luncheon hosted by the Pacific Coast League Albuquerque Dukes. Putting active players in the Hall of Fame was only one of several ideas Lane suggested to add zest to baseball. H e also recommended relieving pitchers, who "aren't like other athletes," of batting chores by shortening the batting order to eight men. "Let's face it," Lane said, pitchers are "some kind of freaks. "They stand up there and throw the ball 150 or 200 times a game at 90 to 100 miles an hour... You can't expect them to hit, too." Lane said electing active players to the Hall of Fame would boost attendance since the inducted players would be tremendous drawing cards. Besides, Lane said, "There's no question about some ballplayers that they're going to be in the Hall of Fame. Willie Mays could have been named in 1961 if he wasn't still playing. Everybody knew Stan Musial was going to make it.

CHICAGO (AP) — Superstar Bobby Hull has filed suit against his former team, the Chicago Black Hawks, perhaps forcing a legal showdown between the long- established National Hockey League aticl the new World Hockey Association. The suit, filed Wednesday in U.S. District Court, challenges the NHL's "reserve clause," contending that it violates the Sherman A n t i - T r u s t Act and monopolizes professional hockey. Hull, who jumped from the NHL's Black Hawks to the Winnipeg Jets of the WHL, said the reserve clause would prevent him from playing with the team of his choice, the Jets, which gave him a $2.75 million contract for signing. Hull's action followed a suit filed Friday by the Hawks charging Hull with violating Jiis NHL contract by signing with the Jets. When the Hawk suit was filed, Hawk President William Wirtz said the action not only sought the return of Hull but was done for the good of the NHL. The Hawk suit was filed in Circuit Court but was trans- ftrred Wednesday to the federal court, which handles antitrust cases. The two suits now will be dovetailed in a hearing before Judge William .1. Lynch, probably in September. Hull's countersuit asks un- specified triple monetary damages and requests the court to declare the NHL reserve clause a violation of the Sherman Act. It charges that NHL teams have entered into a "com- to i<n a t i o n , conspiracy and agreement ... to prevent Hull and other players from playing professional hockey ... for any professional hockey team" outside the NHL. In a statement about the matter, Hull said: "I just want to play hockey, and I am disappointed that the Black Hawks have chosen to take their action against me and my family. "I want to play for Winnipeg and I intend to take whatever steps are necessary to meet my commitments to the Jets ..." Hull's suit asserts that the veteran NHL scoring great was under exclusive control of the Hawks sinct he was a 12-yearold Canadian amateur player. In its attack on the reserve clause, Hull's suit is reminiscent of the one filed by baseball player Curt Flood. Flood attacked the baseball reserve clause but lost after a engthy court fight. However, Jerome- H. Tors h e n , Hull's attorney, maintained that there is no similarity between the Hull and Flood cases because hockey, unlike baseball, has always been considered a sport and does not have an antitrust exemption.
