THE NEWS, Frederick, Mujrkni Personality Scratched From Belmont Stakes NEW YORK (AD Personally, heavily-favored to add the Belmont Stakes to his Preakness victory, was scratched late Friday afternoon from this third leg of the Triple Crown because of a cough that began earlier in the week. Trainer John Jacobs, making the announcement in the press box at Belmont park, said he felt "that in the horse's present condition he could not do his best In fairness to the fans and racing, I want to make the announcement now.*' Jacobs said Personality had a nasal discharge Wednesday and he thought then something might be wrong, but he hoped that it would pass. The horse had a slight fever Thursday and a cough with another nasal discharge, but he galloped Friday" Rain Halts Brunswick TJ Still Scheduled According to a report from the coach of Bruce High School in Westeraport, the scheduled game at 1 p.m. with Brunswick in the Class B-C finals has been postponed because of bad weather. The Western Maryland coach said that due to heavy storms and rain in the area last night, the field was not fit to play on. Attempts to reach Oelphy Gaither, coach of Brunswick early this morning failed. It was assumed they had already departed for Frostburg. The game scheduled at the same diamond at Frostburg State College at 4 p.m. between TJ and Allegany had not been postponed by press tune according to Joseph Polce, coach at TJ. He said he was hoping that the field would be dry enough to play on by 4 p.m. If it isn't it is doubtful when the game could be rescheduled due to the graduation on Monday and other end- of-the-year school activities. This would have been the deciding game in the Class A-AA finals. Allegany finished first in the county league with 13-2 record. They are paced by pitcher Harry Grove, who is 8-1 on the year, and Jim Walton who is 4-1. Allegany has four men hitting over 320 with Walton at .400, Bob Wolford at .373, John Pitt- man at .368 and Jim Damn at .327. Thomas Johnson is 10-5 on the year and will pitch Bob Stockman who threw a one - hitter against South Hagerstown in the first round of District play Wednesday. The Patriots have Roy Angleberger and Robin Pennington in relief if Stockman tires. It is the first time in the history of the school that TJ has made it to the playoffs in baseball. Last year Frederick High School won the title. Two touring golf pros from Texas have distinctive license plates. Dudley Wysong's license carries his last name. Rocky Thompson's tag reads "Rock." Home Runs Lift Orioles Over Milwaukee Nine, 3-2 MILWAUKEE (AP) - Home runs by Merv Rettenmund and Ellie Hendricks carried the Baltimore Orioles to a 3-2 victory over the slumping Milwaukee Brewers Friday night. The victory was only the second in six games for the Orioles and it was the Brewers* fifth straight defeat. Rettenmund broke a 1-1 tie in the fourth inning when he slammed a solo home run off loser Bob Bolin over the right field fence. Hendricks led off the fifth with a 385-foot blast in the right field bleachers. The Brewers got their final run in the sixth inning when Ted Kubiak walked and eventually scored on a wild pitch by winner Dave McNally. McNally scattered six hits in posting his ninth victory in 12 decisions but needed relief help from Eddie Watt in the eighth. Bolin who has not won since May 6, lost his fifth decision. Milwaukee scored in the first on Tommy Harper's double and Kubiak's single and Baltimore tied it in the second on a single by Brooks Robinson and Dave Johnson's double. Spires Hosting Atlantic Sunday The Frederick Spires will play their third home game of the season Sunday against unbeaten Atlantic Masonary beginning at 2 p.m. at McCurdy Field. The Spires were rained out Wednesday and this has forced manager Jack Patterson to make a few changes in the lineup. Patterson will start Don Loun on the mound if Loun's arm is in shape after a two v»eek layoff from pitching. Don Neel or Greg Englar will get the nod if Loun isn't ready Patterson commented. Patterson hasn't seen Atlantic Masonary play bu.. expects them to be a real fine team. Masonary whipped last year's champion Black Sox 13-2 in action last. They have two good pitchers. "We will probably face a pitcher named Blade who was the first American to beat the Cubans in the Pan American games," Patterson said. They also have some excellent hitters as proven by the 13 runs against the Black Sox. The Spires will be hoping to rebound against last week's 12-7 loss against Martz Insurance. In that game Frederick made seven errors. The Spires are 1-2 on the year. Their lone victory came over the P. G. Bulletin mainly thanks to the strong pitching of Loun who started for Frederick. Lou Graham Takes Over Kemper Open Top Spof CHARLOTTE, N.C. (AP)-- Lou Graham assumed the second round lead in the $150,000 Kemper Open Golf Tournament Friday With a solid 68, Arnold Palmer moved into contention and Jack Nicklaus missed the cut for the final two rounds. Graham, a 32-year-old tour regular from Nashville, Tenn., had a 36 hole total of 135, nine under par on the 7,231-yard Quail Hollow Country Club course and owned a one-stroke lead over 46-year-old Art Wall. Wall, a jraying former Masters cfiampion, had a second consecutive 68 for 136. But the big news as usual, was generated by two giants of the game, Palmer and Nicklaus. Palmer, the all-time leading money winner and easily the most popular figure on the tour, delighted his vast gallery with a second 69 for 138, just three strokes out. And the powerful Nicklaus, bothered by putting woes, struggled in with a 73 for 147 and failed to qualify for the final two rounds Saturday and Sunday. Lionel Hebert, the 42-year-old trumpet player who won the 1957 PGA National championship, slipped to a 71 for 137 and was alone in third place. Hebert, had shared the first round lead with Gibby Gilbert, who went to a 74 for 140. Palmer was tied at 138 with Grier Jones, 69, Larry Hinson, who matched the course record with a sparkling 65 and Dick Lotz, who had a 66. "The Brewers took "the lead in the first inning when Tonny Harper led off with a double and scored moments later on a single by Ted Kubiak. McNally walked Walton, but got out of the inning by getting McNertney to hit into a double play. Baltimore didn't wait long to tie the score. With one out in the top of the second Brooks Robinson slammed a single to right and scored all the way from first on a double to the right centerfield wall by Dave Johnson. A crowd of 13,548 attended the game, bringing the total for 23 home dates to 230,621.

Jacobs explained that because of racing's anti-medication rules, with the closeness of the race, he couldn't give Personality any medication for the cough. The departure of Mrs. Ethel D. Jacobs' Personality, a 6-5 favorite as an entry with High Echelon, reduced the field to 10 3-year-olds for the I 1 /? mile test and made it a wide open affair. US' Dad George, who was the second choice at 5-2, took over the favorite's role at 2-1, followed by High Echelon at 3-1. Eddie Belmonte, who rode Personality to his victories in the Preakness and in last week's Jersey Derby, was to have been aboard the colt here, too. He apparently now will switch to Naskra, for whom he also was nominated in case Personality was scratched. Personality was to have started from the outside position with High Echelon in the fifth post. Baymond M. Curtis's My Dad George, runnerup in the Kentucky Derby won by Dust Commander, will leave from the third slot under Ray Broussard. Dust Commander is not entered. El Peco Ranch's Aggressively and Braulio Baeza will start from the inside post. Others entered, and their riders, were Dansar Stable's Delaware Chief, Angel Cordero Jr.; Thomas Fleming's Needles n Pens, Dave Kassen; Briardale Farm's Stop Time, Garth Patterson; Brookmeade Stable's Climber, Jacinto Vasquez; Lawrence P. Boyce's Hark The Lark, no boy; Wendell P. Eosso's Son Excellence, Pete Anderson, and Her-Jac Stable's Naskra. The gross purse will be $158,750 with $115,000 going to the winner with 10 starters, each of whom will be carrying 126 pounds. Post time is approximately 5:30 p.m. EDT and CBS will televise from 5-6 p.m., with radio coverage p.m. from 5:25-5:45 Legion Baseball Begins Sunday The Frederick American Legion team will begin play this Sunday against defending champion Funks town at Funks town. The area team was scheduled to meet Brunswick today, but the game was postponed because many of the Brunswick players will be with Brunswick High School in the District B-C finals at Frostburg State College. According to coach William Greene he has 22 players out for the team, mostly from TJ and Frederick. Either Ken Steidings or George Shaffer will pitch against Funkstown. The team will practice today at Frederick High School at 2 p.m. SAFE WITH EASE - Kansas City Royals' Joe Keough slides safely across home plate as Boston Red Sox catcher Don Pavletich tries to put the tag on him in the fifth inning of their game at Fenway Park Friday night. It all happened when Royals' Bob Oliver singled to center field. The throw from Bosoxer Reggie Smith was not in time. Umpire is Lou Di Muro and next batter is Lou Piniella (9). Boston won 4-2XAP Wirephoto) Chiefs Mike Garrett In Baseball Draft Dodgers Pick Grid Star NEW YORK (AP) - Baseball completed its annual summer free agent draft Friday with a total of 1,038 selections including the surprising pick of Mike Garrett, Kansas City football star, by the Los Angeles Dodgers' organization. Garrett said he plans to quit football after the 1970 season. The total fell short of the record of 1,169 in June, 1967 and also was below the 1969 figure of 1,147. Apparently, the big leaguers felt the 1970 crop was a little below par. Baltimore was the most active team with 67 selections, including 57 in the regular phase of the draft, covering high school and college graduates and 21-year-old athletes who had not been drafted previously. The Orioles also picked 10 players in the secondary phase, involving those previously drafted but not signed. The regular phase lasted 60 rounds with the Pittsburgh Pirates the only team to go all the way. In the late stages only the Pirates and Orioles were drafting. Al Campanis, general manager of the Dodgers, sent a buzz through the meeting hall in the Americana Hotel when he announced that the Dodgers, on behalf of their Bakersfield, Cal- if, team in the California | average," said Jack Schwarz, League, were drafting Garrett. In Los Angeles, the Dodgers' public relations office said, "he (Garrett) came to the Dodgers about a week ago and told Al Campanis he was not interested in playing football after his current five-year contract with Kansas City expires. Garrett, a 5-foot9, 200-pound running back, was an outfielder at Southern California in his college days. He was drafted by the Dodgers before he signed a football contract but went back into the pool as far as baseball was concerned when he didn't sign a baseball contract. Garrett, 26 years old, was No. 781 in the 1970 baseball draft. Garrett said in New York he will announce his plans to quit football after the 1970 season at a Monday news conference, and will negotiate with the baseball Dodgers when free. The first player picked in the secondary phase was David Kingman, a pitcher-outfielder from Southern California, who was selected by the San Francisco Giants. Kingman, 6-6 and 210, throws and bats right-handed. He suffered a broken arm this season and switched to the outfield with great success. "We rate Kingman way above Head Says Owners Tried To Modify Clause NEW YORK (AP) - John Gaherin, the labor relations' negotiator for the major league club owners, testified in the Curt Flood case Friday that the owners had negotiated in good faith in an attempt to modify baseball's reserve system before the suit was instituted. Gaherin also characterized t h e relative b a r g a i n i n g strengths of the clubs and the players in negotiations "as about as equal as any situation can produce." Gaherin pointed out in testimony for baseball's defendants in the $3 million antitrust suit that the owners had recognized their obligation to bargain collectively with the players over the reserve system during 1967. "Did the owners ever assert it was not a subject for collective bargaining?" asked attorney Sandy Hadden. "No," replied Gaherin. Gaherin then said there had been a period when the two parties engaged in a joint study and, finally, in August, 1969, the Players Association had asked that negotiations be opened on the subject of the reserve clause and related rules. Gaherin said the owners "were shocked by the extent of the proposals" made by the Players Association because of what he said would be the "obvious harm they would do to baseball." He said those proposals included a provision for a baseball player to gain free again status after three years service; a reduction in the number of players a team could reserve- a salary arbitration procedure, and a provision that no trade could be made without a player's consent. He said negotiations had ended when Flood, who objected to being traded to Philadelphia by St. Louis without his consent, brought the suit in which he is challenging the legality of baseball's reserve system. Under cross examination Gaherin admitted that the owners never had put forward a proposal to modify the key provision of the reserve system-the option renewal clause that binds a player to the club that signs him until he is traded, sold or released. He also agreed that no other business contained such a contract between employer and employee but took exception with attorney Jay Topkis that the form of that contract put a player in "servitude," Gaherin also said under cross examination that the owners had made no specific proposals to change the option renewal clause or any other of the matters in which the Players Asso- ciation made formal proposals. Baseball's defendants are expected to call one more witness before resting, an economist. Flood's side hekly will call Marvin Miller, executive director of the Players' Association, and the organization's attorney, Dick Moss, as rebuttal witnesses before the case winds up Wednesday with former club owner Bill Veeck a possibility as the last witness for Flood. r ^^ MVAL Tourney On Tap Today The Monocacy Valley Athletic League tennis tournament will be held at TJ today. Walkersville, the district B-C champions, rates as the favorite in the girls match. Catoctin has the top boys team and should take the title. farm director of the Giants. Southern California still is involved in the NCAA playoffs. And Kingman can't be signed until that has been completed. As was the case in Thursday's first round, several relatives of former or current baseball players were drafted. Bill Crowley, son of the Boston Red Sox's public relations man, was picked by Detroit. Crowley is a third baseman at Holy Cross. John McLish, an outfielder in an Edmond, Okla, high school, son of Cal McLish, Montreal pitching coach, was taken by the Expos, who also grabbed Roy Smalley, son of the former big league infielder. The young- er Smalley is a high school shortstop in Los Angeles. The New York Yankees drafted Keith Metheny, a pitcher from Kent, Wash., son of the former Yankee, Bud Metheny. San Francisco took Ben Heise,' a shortstop in Vacaville, Calif., brother of the Giants' infielder Bobby Heise. All of the draft selections gave the clubs only the exclusive negotiating rights with the players who go back into the pool if they refuse to sign. However, no other club can negotiate with them in the meantime. American League umpires Hank Soar and Jim Honochick have worked in five World Series. Carol Mann Takes Lead BALTIMORE (AP) - Carol Mann, of Towson, Md., playing a course five miles from her home shot a five under par 68 Friday to take a 1-stroke lead in the $22,500 Lady Carling Open at Pine Ridge Golf Course. The total yardage for the course is 6,449 yards. Sandra Palmer, a 28-year-old former cheerleader at North Texas State University, scored 69 to take second place. 1969 Golfer of the Year Kathy Whitworth is one of six players three strokes off the pace at two- under par 71.

' Senators Lose To Minnesota, 2-1 WASHINGTON (AP) - Bert Blyleven, a 19-year-old right- hander who was born in Holland and was in high school in Garden Grove, Calif., a year ago, held Washington to one run in seven innings in his major league debut Friday night as the Minnesota Twins defeated the Senators 2-1. Blyleven, called up from Evansville of the American Association to replace the injured Luis Tiant, walked only one and fanned seven. He gave up a run to the first batter he faced when Lee Maye hit a home run on a 3-2 count. Manager Bill Rigney lifted Blyleven in the eighth when four of the next five scheduled hit- ters for the Senators were left- handed. Ron Perranoski finished up.
