I'The best fighter is in most cases a hungry fellow," he said, _-. ^—________—_ "He turns to the only thing he knows how to do ... in reaching for some measure of success. He turns to boxing to achieve some of the goals of life." "There are more opportunities now, especially for minority group members, for an education," said Walcott, who won the world crown in 1951 by knocking out Ezzard Charles. He named Joe Frazier and Cassius Clay as among the best boxers of recent years. Walcott is in Reno for a party Friday to mark the 85th birthday of former boxing manager Ancil Hoffman. The writers asked Walcott's toughest fight. "Staying married for 37 years," he quipped.

The Braves stormed to an early 7-1 lead, then hung on to snap a three-game losing string as Milt Pappas picked up the victory in relief of George Stone. Garrido opened the game with a triple and scored on a single by Aaron, who stole second and tallied on Cepeda's double. After two walks filled the bases, Bob Didier's single made it 3-0. Singles by Stone and Garrido knocked out Montreal starter Carl Morton in the second and two wild pitches by reliever Bill Dillman got another run home. Singles by Aaron and Tony Gonzalez produced two more, giving Atlanta a 6-0 lead. ......... 5230 Harm If 4220 MJones on 4122 HRzed P 5021 Fairey If 0000 1000 + ATLANTA MONTREAL Garrido ss • Mlllan 2b HAaron rf Cwrty If Cepeda Ib Gonzalez cf CBovzr 3b Didler c GStone p Prlddy p McQueen p .. 01 0 0 Phillips j>.cf Staenfet'ib 4021 3000 5021 3110 1000 ,.,,.

NEW YORK (AP) - Cleon Jones cracked three hits and Jim McAndrew survived two rain delays to pitch the New York Mets to an 2-1 victory over the Cincinnati Reds yesterday. McAndrew helped his own cause with two perfectly executed sacrifice bunts — one a squeeze that produced a run — and Jones capped the 13-hit New York attack with a two- run double in the seventh. The Reds collected four hits — three of them doubles — in the first two innings. But after play was halted 33 minutes at the start of the third inning and 29 minutes at the start of the fourth, McAndrew came on strong and allowed only four more hits the rest of the way.

A triple by Doug Adams, fol- lowed by consecutive singles by Rich McKinney, Bob Spence and Fred Winston. Then in the seventh, the Toros crept to within a. run of the Beavers by scoring two more runs.

Van Buren For information Associated Press DETROIT - Mike Kilkenny, making his first start in nearly a month, pitched a four-hitter as the Detroit Tigers beat the Oakland A's, 5-1, last night. Kilkenny (3-1,) allowed only a bunt single over the first four innings and then the game was delayed 51 minutes by rain. He came back apparently unaffected by the layoff and hurled three-hit ball the rest of the way, striking out 11. The Tigers gave him a two-run cushion in the third inning off Rollie Fingers (34). Dick McAuliffe led Off with a double, Mickey Stanley singled him home and took second on Reggie Jackson's throwing error. Then Willie Horton singled Stanley home for his 30th run- batted-in in the last 20 games. He also has a 16-game hitting streak. Jim Northrup tagged reliever Marcel Lachemann for a solo home run in the sixth and knocked in Detroit's fourth run in the seventh by singling home Al Kaline. With the bases loaded, reliever Jim Grant balked, allowing Horton to score from third for the Tigers' final run. Joe Rudi ruined Kilkenny's shutout bid by doubling home Bert Campaneris, who walked with two out in the eighth. CLEVELAND (AP)-Rookie Rich Hand scattered eight hits for his first complete game in the major leagues and Ray Fosse and Roy Foster hit two*run homers as the Cleveland Indians whipped the slumping California Angels 9-2 last night. Fosse's third-inning homer, his 10th, capped a three-run rally and gave Hand all the runs he needed' for his second victory against five defeats. The Angels jumped on Hand for a run in the first inning on singles by Sandy Alomar and Roger Reppz and Jim Fregosi's sacrifice fly and Jim Spencer homered in the ninth. The Indians tied it in the second when Gragig Nettles led off with a single. Alomar's throw trying to complete a double play was wild, and Tony Horton, who forced Nettles, was safe at second and scored on Ted Uhlaen- der's single.
