(AP) Where do you find a lot of Japanese chopsticks in a hurry in the middle of Pennsylvania? In a Chinese restaurant, of course. That was one problem solved as eight teams were poised for the opening Tuesday of the Little League Baseball World Scries in tha cily where the whole thing started. One of the eight clubs in the week-long tournament is the Kuni- tachi, Japan, team—the eatingest, smallest and smilingest team ever to play here. The Japanese lads—all are 11 Gu/f Sfofes Nef Meef in 2nd Round BATON ROUGE (AP) - Elizabeth (Pulsy) Trice of Baton Rouge, top-seeded in the junior division, breezed into today's second round action of the Gulf States tennis lourney here.

(AP) - Fullback Billy Lott is lost indefinitely to the Boston Patriots of the American Football League. Though doctors will not make a final decision until today, the Patriots reported that Lott apparently will have to undergo surgery on his left knee and will be lost to the club a minimum of six weeks. Dr. Jye Dorgan, team physician, said he is fairly certain the former Mississippi ace has torn cartilege in the knee injured last teasou.* and 12 years old by American reckoning, a year older by their own — came to Williamsport in gray summenveight kimonos, equipped with special food, including instant noodles — but no chopsticks. ! League officials scurried around to fill the void, and found chop- j sticks in a local Chinese restau-, rant. The Japanese boys said they weren't the style they were used to, and many switched to knives and forks. The Japanese are one of four foreign entries. The other three are from Stoney Creek, Ontario, Canada; Monterrey, Mexico, and Poitiers Post of Vienne, France.! American teams are from Kankakee. 111., (ndrtlit, Pitman, N.' J. (east), Del Rio, Tex., (south,! and San Jose, Calif., (west). i Action gets under way today j with Pitman against Del Rio at 2 p.m., and Kankakee against! Sloney Creek at 5 p.m. The Japanese go into action Wednesday against Monterrey, after the San Jose team meets the team from France, which is composed of sons of Americans working there. None of the Japanese boys speaks any English, and few of them could fill out the uniforms furnished to them by LL officials. Three wear size I'/j shoes, and there just aren't any that small 1 in stock. A rush order has gone out for shoes and uniforms to be delivered—they hope—before their first game. The Japanese boys average 4 feet 8'/i inches in height, and a little over 76 pounds, which means they will be giving away something like eight inches, and 30 to 40 pounds per boy to the other clubs. However, they have a couple of secret weapons. For one, it is reported that they bow to the urn- jpires at all times, which could gain them some points. For another, they have a pair of identical twins — both second basemen. The twins are Masuo and Yoshio Nakano. John Gilbert, an American with the Office of Special Investigations in Tokyo who is one of their managers, says one of the twins is a good hitter and the other is a good fielder. He's not sure which is which. Two Leagues Split Bowling Honors Monday HONOR ROLL Men 200 LINES: Doug Smith 214. 600 SERIES: None.

Chennault and Offutt, riding air- light pitching performances, swept past opening-round foes Monday in the Second Air Force Baseball championships at the base diamond. Chennault upended Blytheville AFB, Ark., 4-2 behind the five-hit mound job of manager Rene Miller, while the boys from Omaha, Neb., whitewashed Clinton-Sherman AFB, Okla., 5-0 on Raymond Kalliher's four-hitter. As a result, Chennault moved into the finals of the winners' bracket against the winner of today's 8 p.m. game featuring Offutt and Barksdale of Bossier City. Barksdale had a bye in the first round. The two Monday losers, Blytheville and Clinton-Sherman, will open losers' bracket play at 4 p.m. today. Chennault's victory over the slightly-favored Blytheville team thus gives it a commanding position in the tournament, having a day of rest, while Offutt, the team the SACers feel they must beat, will have to play every day. Miller, who struck out 14 while walking only one, was in c o m- plcte command all the way with the exception of the eighth inning, when four errors by the SACers sandwiched around the lone Blytheville hit of the frame gave the Bombers two runs and cut the Chennault margin in half. BOXINQ By Tha Associated Press OAKLAND, Calif.-Lyle Mackin, 155%, Oakland, outpointed Dave Brown, 156, San Francisco, 10. The Bombers may have scored more had not first baseman Joe Masterson tried to score on a short overthrow and committed the final out at the plate. Chennault picked up a single run in the third inning on a walk, a passed ball and infield singles by John Jordan and Butch McKillan. The SACers broke the game open with three more hi the top of the eighth. A walk to McKillan and an error on Miller's sacrifice attempt, followed by a wild pitch and a passed ball plated one run and George Blum sent Miller across the plate with a booming triple to left center. Blum scored moments later when Blytheville misplayed a rundown play on Dave Boyd, .who was hit by a pitch. Gordy Wanasek collected three singles in the game, while Blum, Miller and Art Kruger all had a pair of safeties. Offutt broke a scoreless tie with three runs on five hits in the sixth inning, and that was all Kalliher, who whiffed 11, needed. The Nebraskans added another in the eighth on Kalliher's sacrifice fly and scored their final run in the ninth when Bill Briscoe doubled and rode home on John Beck's blow to left. Briscoe and Larry Earle wielded hot sticks for the winners, both collecting three hits, while Beck added two safe- tics.

The St. Louis Cardinals may be on another injury binge today after their No. 1 halfback John David Crow—considered by many :he top all-around back in the National Football League—was defi- litely considered out of action for three weeks with an ankle sprain. The Cardinals, dark-horse :hoice to cop the Eastern Conference title this year, remember all too vividly how a broken ankle suffered by Crow in a pre-season ?ame a year ago, and then an nordinate rash of other injuries, cost them a shot at the 1961 title. Crow, offensive guard Mike Me-, Gee and rookie tackle Bill Wilson: all were injured in last Saturday \ night's 41-14 whipping by Green | Bay. McGee is also out for three! week and Wilson will be lost for six. The New York Giants were in the same predicament today, with three more casualties to an already crowded hospital brigade. Last year, the defending Eastern Conference champions were mostly injury immune, a factor that must favor any contending club. The Cards are a living testimony to the fact. They lost veteran offensive tackle Ken Panifl and fullback Joe Childress for the 1961 season with injuries in pre-season games. Then, in order, came Crow, halfback Prentice Gautt, defensive end Joe Robb, fullback Frank Mestnik and Mai Hammack, McGee, end Hugh Mclnnis, center Don Gillis, linebacker Charley Ellzey, defensive backs Larry Wilson and Pat Fisher, of' fensive tackle and kicker Gerry Perry, defensive end Luke Owens, offensive tackle Ed Cook and defensive back Billy Stacy, all of whom missed at least one game, j Crow didn't return until the latter stages of the 1961 season when the ! Cards were out of-the race. Then came Army duty for four j other players and chronic arm trouble by quarterback Sam Etcheverry. The Giants are compiling a list, just as long. Rookie end Lou Ki-! rouac is out for at least eight weeks with a fractured leg, all pro defensive back Erich Barnes a dislocated elbow, while defensive back Dick Lynch, offensive back Jim Podoley, end Joe Walton and linebacker Bob Simtns are sidelined with a variety of serious bruises. The Giants added three more in a 42-10 loss to San Francisco. Rookie guard Bookie Bolin suffered a fractured ankle and will be out six weeks, while rookie linebacker Bob Winter and tackle Greg Larsen were sidelined with bruised shoulders. The Pittsburgh Steelers got hit hard in their loss to Cleveland. Offensive tackle Ray Lemek will be out three weeks with a fractured bone in his right knee while All America fullback Bob Ferguson of Ohio State is sidelined 10 days with a pulled hamstring muscle. Philadelphia Eagles' fullback Clarence Peaks injured his shoulder against Chicago and is out indefinitely while Dallas tackle Bill Herchman, with a dislocated left elbow, and linebacker Mike Dowdle, with a bruised kneecap, have been sidelined. The Boston Patriots of the American League lost veteran fullback Billy Lott indefinitely. Lott injured his left knee for the second time since training began against Houston last Saturday night and will require an operation. Fats' defensive back Bob Soltis and offensive end Tom Stephens also came up with injuries during the game. The Oakland Raiders of the AFL acquired veteran offensive end Max Boytston from Dallas for an undisclosed draft choice, strengthening their weakest spot, while Washington of the NFL got tackle Ben Davidson from Green Bay, also for a draft choice.
