The game, No. :)() in the inter- league rivalry, was scheduled for a 1 p.m. Pacific Daylight Time start before u capacity -I2.()(i()-pliis audience al Candlestick Park with millions of additional baseball fans watching on a national TV hookup. A second All-Star gam*' , will he played July 31 in Boston. Paul Richards, the Baltimore , manager picked to pilot the Amor- ! ican League squad, sounded his circuit's keynote when he said- 'I didn't come here to put on a show. I'm going to keep my : starters in the game as long as t > can and make changes only when it means winning the game.

Danny Murtaugh, the National League' manager, also stressed ! winning but not nearly as strong I ly as Richards. ! "Naturally, our prime objective) ; is lo win," he said, "but I believe we owe il lo the people to I use as many All-Star players as | possible." Murlaugh included Eddie Matthews in his starting lineup, but there was a strong possibility that Ihc Milwaukee third baseman •might be sidelined in favor of Ken Boyer of the St. Louis Cardinals. Matthews suffered a spike wound in a collision with Daryl Spencer of Los Angeles last week, requiring H stilchcs on his right knee. . An early southpaw duel was assured when Richards named Whitey Lord the New York Yankee Hi-game winner, to open for the Americans and Murtaugh nominated Warren Spahn, the 40-year- old ace of the Milwaukee Braves. ; Murtaugh said he would follow Spahn with right-hander Bob Pur; key of Cincinnati and Elroy Face •of his own Pittsburgh team but I Richards declared he had not decided on his pitchers after the third inning. "All I'm interested in is winning." Richards repealed. "Thai's why I didn't stick to the custom of selecting the runner-ups in the player voting. I picked the men who would give me a balancdcl squad." Richards obviously as convinced that his starting lineup consisting of Johnny Temple, Norm Cash. Mickey Mantle, Roger Maris, Rocky Colavito.. Tony Kubek John Romano and Brooks Robinson represented the best the American League had to offer. Murtaugh look a more conciliatory attitude. "I appreciate Richards' thinking" he said, "but he has different ideas on the subject. I believe the National League has boys with recognized ability and regardless of how they came out in the voting, we won't weaken the team no matter who we play." Mtirtaugh's starting lineup included Maury Wills, Matthews or Boyer. Willie Mays. Orlando Ce- pcda Roberto Clemente, Bill White, Frank Boiling, and Smoky Burgess. Each squad had three left-handed and one switch hiltcr. "Left-handed power hitters have a definite advantage here," said Murtaugh. 'There is a sort of jct- .-tream that helps carry the ball out over the right field fence. I think the American League, clc- j spite such power hitters as Mantle and Maris. has no advantage because Mays. Cepeda and Cle- mcnte can hit the ball over all. fences with equal power." Joe Ezar Has Spotlight in British Open By RONALD THOMPSON BIHKOALK, England fAPi — Wisecracking Joe K/.ar. a .suntanned Kloridan who can make a golf ball almost sit up and talk, today was the most talked-ajxnit American in the British Open championship, even with Arnold Palmer around. Joe loves to play trick shots for fun—and his special brand of wizardry shot him into position as the top American scorer after the first qualifying round of the championship Monday. lie was even ahead of Palmer, the man ihc fans turn out by Hie hundreds to watch whenever he plays. .Ezar, from Miami, had a 70 on the (>,(iO;i-yard hillside course over which bolh Palmer and his top rival, Gary Player of South Africa, scored 71. But nobody seriously considers Ezar a threat to the two leading money winners of the American circuit, least of all Joe himself. Palmer, Player, Ezar. and about 350 other golfers from 1!) countries set out Tuesday on the second qualifying round that will whittle the huge field down to 120 to compete in the play-off stages of the championship Wednesday, Thursday and Friday. The cut-off stage is expected to be U8 or HO for the lifi qualifying holes. Player and Palmer are both bound to make it—and so, it seems is rugged Joe Ezar. One of the most relaxed men in professional golf, he intrigued the local fans both with his wisecracking manner and his no-nonsense style of play. Ezar never lakes a practice swing or waggles the club around before hitting. One moment the ball is there—the next, bang, it's gone. The crowds find this a pleasant change from the painstaking way in which most pros play their shots.

"Good luck Terry" read a cable Downes received from Mohn- ny Buckley of Boston. "Stay close to Penclcr.

Hope jig Star SPORTS Dodgers Will Have to Do Without Don SAN FRANCISCO (API — The Los Angeles Dodgers trailing the Cincinnati Reds by five games, will have to get. along without Don Drysdalc until next Tuesday. The (i-fooUi pitcher has drawn a $100 fine and a five-day suspension, effective Thursday, for violating the National League rule against throwing at a hitter. Warren Giles, president of the National League, handed down the ruling Monday. -'U Drysdalc was ejected from Sunday's game with Cincinnati—won by the Reds M-li - after he hit Frank Robinson, the Reds' right fielder, on the hand in I he sixth inning. Dusly Bogges.s, the plate umpire, had warned Drysdalc earlier when he sent Robinson into the dirt to avoid a pilch. The warning carried an automatic $50 fine. When Don hit Robinson, Boggess threw him out of the game. In cases when, in an umpire's judgment, a pitcher deliberately throws at a batter's person the league president lakes over. Alter and discussing the case with K.. (Bu/./.y) Bavasi, Dodger general manager, Giles announced the ruling. Bavasi said the loss of Drys- dalc was a lough blow for (he Dodgers at this lime when they have been dropping behind the Reds. He claimed Ihc tall right- hander would miss two turns.
