(AP) The Jackie Robinson-Bob Feller racial feud waxed hotter I Wed n e s d a y with fresh sparks flying between New York and Washi n g t o n, D.C., the All- Star capital. "I f s damned lie, and I want you to quote me, Robinson said in a telephone call to the Associated Press after reading that he once held up an exhibition game while demanding more money BOB FELLER Out of Sight, 8-2, After 5 in 3rd Willie McCovey Ties the Record By George Minot, Jr. © The Washington Post WASHINGTON, D.C. - The National League did the partying at baseball's 100th birthday celebration Wednesday. Willie McCovey lit two home- run candles against the Americans, Johnny Bench one, and the older league gobbled all the cake in the All-Star game, 9-3. Private Preserve Making the annual mid-season spectacular more than ever its own private preserve.Nhe j N.L. won its seventh straight in! the 36-year-old series. There were moments of joy j for the A.L. rooters, who were in the overwhelming majority among the Robert F. Kennedy Stadium sellout of 45,259. Washington's own Frank Howard hit the game's longest ball, a 460- foot monster off the mezzanine over the clock in r i g h t center field, and Detroit's Bill Frechan hit the fourth of the contest's five home runs, one shy of the All-Star record. The game, with Vice-President Agnew relieving for grand-touring President Nixon, was a refreshing change from recent years when the hitters stayed home. The 12 runs were five more than the teams totaled in the previous three years. Except for the excitement generated by the appearance of pinchhitter Willie Mays (he filed out) and a homer-robbing catch by Carl Yastrzemski, it was pretty tame stuff after the fourth inning. All the runs had been tabulated by then. Only three more hits, among the National's 11 and the American's six, were to follow.' Trailing by six runs entering mid-contest, the American Leaguers found themselves in the position of hoping for a game and face-saving cloudburst, of i the type that sent everyone N.L.'s batting practice, but not ' away Tuesday night in the first another drop fell once the can- ; All-Star game postponement.

Sharp Words Robinson, the first black man to break into major league baseball, and Feller, the Cleveland Indians' one-time fastball- ing ace from Van Meter, la., exchanged sharp words over the game's racial practices during an old-timers' panel Tuesday in Washington. Later Maury Allen of the New York Post quoted Feller as saying friction between the two players first developed back in 1948 when, according to Feller, Robinson refused to take the field unless be was paid three times more than the other men. "I was playing against Satchel Paige's All-Stars in 1946," Feller was quoted by Allen. "Satch made a lot of money -OuLatlL&JidJL "Robinson had played in Montreal that year. Just before the game started, he demanded three times as much money as anybody else. 'Same Price' "I told him there were people waiting to see us play and was going to the mound. If he didn't take the field, I would call the commissioner. He finally took the field for the same price." Robinson, now a frozen fow franchise executive, insisted vehemently in his call to thi Associated Press that the inci dent did not take place. "I remember going from Montreal to Detroit for a game in 1945 but I didn't play against Feller," the former Brooklyn infielder insisted. "I recall the occasion well. My wife was eight months' pregnant. I was told she shouldn't be traveling. >"Then in 1946 in Los Angele I did play against Feller in an exhibition. It was the only Urn we faced each other.

(AP) Detroit's Denny McLain, scheduled to be the American League's starting pitcher, failed to arrive at Wednesday's All-Star game until the second inning because of a dental appointment in Detroit. American League President Joe Cronin said no disciplinary action would be taken against McLain. "He had an understanding with the manager," Cronin said. He made every effort to get there. McLain left Washington Tuesday night after the game was postponed because of rain. He said he had to keep an 8 a.m. appointment to have some teeth capped, but had arranged a flight plan that would get him back in time to start the game. Planned Switch can League Manager Mayo Smith, who also is McLain's skipper during the regular season, started Mel Stottlemyre of the New York Yankees. Smith said the switch to Stottlemyre was not made at the last minute. He said he told Stottlemyre Tuesday night he would start if McLain could not make it back in time. "The fact that he came late had no bearing on the ball game," said Smith after the National League defeated the American League, 9-3.

She maintained her three-shot edge as both she and Miss Harman carded one-over-par 37's going out and was still two shots in front going to No. 18. But there the 21-year-old California State of Long Beach co-ed missed the green and failed to drop a four-foot putt, finishing with a bogey six. Miss Hannan's second shot caught the trap to the right of the eighteenth. She stroked out with her putter and then curled in a- 6-foot putt for a birdie to force the playoff.
