Skip's advice helps Osteen out of hole Gable's win ends three Evening Telegraph Friday, September 1,1972 B4 Knight's boot trips Miami Dancers in court ByJOEMOOSHII, CHICAGO (AP) - Claude Osteen cast a wishful eye first toward the bench and then the Los Angeles bullpen. Osteen was in trouble. Ron Santo has just cracked a three-run homer and Carmen Fanzone had singled with two out in the seventh. Manager Walt Alston came out to the mound, chatted with Osteen and then left. Osten hitched his belt, got the third out and worked out of trouble in both the eighth and ninth innings to hurl the Dodgers to a 5-3 triumph over the Chicago Cubs. "The Skip came out. and said it's you or nothing," said a tired Osteen after hurling his 10th complete game of the season. "He added 'you're not going to get much help,'" Osteen said. "1 knew if I really needed help in the ninth my roomie (Jim Brewer) could help me out," continued Osteen who singled in the sixth inning and drove in what proved to be the winning run. Kinsella's win helped itz' bid Spil MUNICH (AP) — John Kinsella of Hinsdale, Til., won a gold medal Thursday as a member of the United States' winning 800-meter freestyle relay swimming team and in so doing helped Mark Spitz win his fifth Olympic gold. Kinsella took a slim lead in the first 200-meter leg of the race that Spitz, in the anchor leg, turned into a record-setting 20-meter rout. The winning time was 7:35.78. compared with the previous world record, also set by a U.S. team at Minsk, Russia, in 1971. Richard Wohlhuter of St. Charles, 111., fell in a qualifying heat of the 800- meter inn, and finished fourth, thus eliminating him. Wilye White of Chicago, who figured to have a good chance in the women's long jump, placed a disappointing llth. Army Pvt. John Fitzgerald of Skokie, 111., stationed at Ft. Sam Houston, Tex., placed llth individually in the modern pentathlon, and the U.S. three-man team placed fourth. The competition included horseback riding, swimming, shooting, fencing and a cross-country run. Jan Johnson of Chicago Heights, HI., was one of three Americans qualifying in the polt vault.

AMERICAN LEAGUE That single gave Osteen a 4-0 lead and Osteen went into the seventh with a two-hit shutout before Billy Williams singled, Jim Hickman walked and Santo followed with his 15th homer of the year. "In the big parks, a 4-fl lead is a big one," said Osteen, "But it's not much in this park. You get. a couple of guys on and the Cubs have five or six guys in the lineup who can and will hit it out. Suddenly you've got a tough game on your hands. "I was tired," said Osteen. "I had the strength in my arm but not my legs. I'm just getting over a muscle pull." Osteen finished with a six- hitter and boosted his record to 15-9 but the Cubs, who had a four-game winning streak halted, aided their downfall with three errors as three of the Dodgers' runs were unearned. Although the Dodgers scored three times on four hits in the first inning, two Golf Notes YWCA LEAGUE Dana Williams was the firsc night winner of the YWCA Golf League's Thursday play at Country Fairways where (he event of the day was: season's medium score.

After Santo had closed the gap to 4-3, the Dodgers loaded the bases in the eighth on three walks with two outs only to have Santo boot Manny Moat's ground ball for a run-scoring error. "Osteen dazzled us," said Cub Manager Whitey Lockman. "I don't like to think unearned runs beat us. Some balls just aren't meant to be caught." The Dodgers go on to St. Louis for a twi-night doubleheader Friday with Don Sutton, 14-8, and Al Downing, 7-6, facing Rick Wise, 12-14, and Al Santorini, 6-8.

(AP) — Chris Evert, last year's U.S. Open Tennis sweetheart, is finding out about the difference a year makes. Miss Evert was 16 when she first competed in the tournament and swept the fans off their feet with upset wins. Now 17 and about to turn pro, she feels the fans haven't given her the cold shoulder, but the warmth just isn't there. Following her 6-1, 6-1 victory over 16-year-old Laurie Tenny Thursday, Miss Evert said the spectators were rooting for her opponent. "I felt the crowd was definitely with Laurie. She's an upcoming junior and they would have liked to see her win. "Last; year they were behind me because I was upcoming, but now they expect me to at least reach a certain point and they're behind the younger players".

One permit per hunter for goose and duck hunting is all that will be allowed, A second permit will be made available to pheasant hunters — after Nov. 1 — for the dates that have not been filled by thai time. The permit pheasant hunting season runs from Nov. 11 through Dec. 3 and the permit duck hunting runs from Oct. 28 through Dec. 16. State Managed goose hunting areas — at Horseshoe Lake and Union County public shooting areas — will be operated from. Nov. 21 through Dec. 23, or until the state quota of 24,000 geese is reached. And if this quota has not been reached by Dec. 23 hunting will resume Dec. 28. Permits, if that occurs, will be issued at the areas on a daily draw basis. There are seven public pheasant shooting areas where a bag limit of two pheasants of either sex will be allowed. The areas are: Cartyle Lake, Chain O'Lakes, Des Plaines, Green Kiver, Iroquois County, Rend Lake, and Richland county.

The lake however will be closed on dates when it's frozen over and bag limits will be determined on the point system the same as throughout the state. Remember — opening days, weekends and holidays are always the dates most sought, so, if possible try and schedule your hunt for a week day when hunting pressure is reduced. No applications will be accepted by telephone no matter what state official you might know or be related to, and applications presented over the counter (in person) at the Department of Conservation will be processed after the day's mail.

Tfcat's what I call promotion. year sweat By NICK LUDINGTON MUNCIH (AP) - After the best showing ever by American wrestlers in the Olympic Games, Dan Gable relaxed just enough to smile and say it was undoublted-'y the happiest moment of his life. The intense Waterloo, Iowa, grappler had thought about the gold medal for three years, sweating through at least three grueling workouts a day to prepare himself. With the medal around his neck, for a decisive win in the 149.5-pound class. Gable, 23, said he might, celebrate by restricting himself to "a couple of days of light workouts." Then it is back to the grind, particuarly if he decides to try again in Montreal in 19715. "I'll never try it unless I'm the best-conditioned and best- trained guy around," Gable said. "If I can't train enough, I won't go." Gable's dedicated performance led an American effort which brought three wrestlin? gold medals—first for the United States since 1960—two silvers and a bronze. "It's the greatest ever performance by American wrestlers," said jubilant Coach William Farrell of New York, hugging and patting his well- muscled charges. The Americans did not do as well as a superb Russian team which won five golds, two silvers and a bronze medal. But they were well ahead of the traditional wrestling powers: Japan, which won two golds and a silver; Bulgaria, with two silvers and a bronze, Hungary with three bronzes, and Turkey and Iran, heavily disappointed with just one medal each, a silver for Turkey and bronze for Iran. American medal winners Thursday were Ben Peterson, 22. of Comstock, Wis., gold medal in the 198-pound class; his brother John, 23, silver in the 181-pound class, Wayne Wells, 27, of Norman Okla., gold in the 163-pound class; Rich Sanders, 27, of Lakeview, Ore., silver in the 126-pound class; Chris Taylor, 22, of Dowagiac, Mich., b r o n z e in the super- heavyweight class, and Gable. Taylor, a 400-pound junior at Iowa State University is in a good spot to fill the shoes of Russia's superheavyweight, Alex Medved, 34, who retired from competition after winning his third straight gold medal here. "I'm sure thinking about it," Taylor said of a try at Montreal. Taylor has a chance for a second medal where as the only freestyle wrestler who will compete in Greco-Roman competition starting Sept. 5. WASHINGTON (AP) Curt Knight pulled a Garo Yepremian Thursday night while Yepremian looked like Jan Stenerud. Yepremian's field goal last, season ended the National Football League's longest game as Miami defeated the Kansas City Chiefs for the American Conference title. The Dolphin's three-pointer came after Kansas City's Jan Stenerud missed an "easy" field goal attempt. Thursday night, it was Yepremian's turn to miss the little hooter was wide from the 33-yard line. Knight, who led the National Conferences in scoring last year, split the uprights with a 24-yard field goal with 36 seconds remaining in the game to give the Washington Redskins a 2724 exhibition victory over the Dolphins. Knight also kicked a 51- yarder to give the Redskins as a temporary 24-21 lead, ihc other Washington scores calne on a pair of one-yard nlns by Charley Harraway and a 17-yard pass from quarterback Sonny Jurgensen to running back Larry Brown.

Howard Weaver, Ron Stalhut, Ray Watsek and Ray Rushing pitched for the Stars. Weaver was the winner, allowing three hits in as manv innings, walking one and fanning one. Fosterburg had six hits overall. Kirk Huber of the Stars, who played regularly with the Cougars, was named the game's most valuable.

HOUSTON (AP) - TWO women who danced la a courtroom here clad only in bikini-type panties and two round bandages for pasties were found innocent of performing lewd and obscene dances. Brenda Lou Andrews, 31, and Edith Lee Hall, 30, were arrested in a similar costume July 8 at. a local nightclub. Thursday, before the four- woman, two-man jury and a packed courtroom, the women repeated their dance performing to a rocking beat from a phonograph while red lights flashed and strobe lights blinked. County Criminal Court Judge J. D. Guyon ordered the doors of the courtroom sealed after spectators started standing in the aisles in an attempt to see the unusual session. Others crowded the hall outside and peeked through the windows in the courtroom door. Wine f est was rowdy LOS GATOS, Calif. (AP) — The annual Los Gatos Wine and Cultural Festival, a two- year institution in this sleepy coastal foothill village, may become a thing of the past if the town's lady mayor has her way. Last weekend, 25,000 festival-goers drank 800 cases of wine under a blazing sun in 90-degree temperatures. The result: six arrests, two policemen injured an.1 widespread vandalism including theft of two stuffed elephants valued at ?24 from the Republican headquarters. "It was the worst trouble we've ever had here," Mayor Ruth Cannon said Wednesday. "I'm not going to vote for it again unless these rowdies can be controlled." The trouble, she said, was caused by motorcycle gangs who invaded the town Sunday afternoon, guzzling cheap wine from their own half- gallon jugs instead of politely sipping the fine wines supplied by 10 Santa Clara County vintners.
