ALTON EVENING SATURDAY, JULY 6,1068 Lakers Down 74; Kirkwood Ousts Rockettes If you missed the action this morwn?. didn't make it this afternoon, ysull still have a chance io see plenty of softball tonight as action continues in the Thir J Annual Women's Firecracker Invitational Tournament. three games were played in the first session, which started at 10:30 this morning. At 3 o'clock, three more games comprised losers' bracket games. Then, tonight, two winners' bracket games. At 7:30, the Alton Lak'TB take on either Nashville's (Tenn.) Mustangs or Kutis of St. Louis, depending on the outcome of their game at noon. At 10 o'clock tonight, it'll be the winner of the Milwaukee- Manchester (Mo).,and Indianapolis - Memphis games. Indianapolis and Memphis met this morning at 10:30 and Milwaukee tangled with Manchester at 1:30. Friday night the Lakers made their debut a successful one by beaitng Wood River's Royals, 7-4. That was followed by a losers' game in which Kirkwood (Mb.) eliminated Collinsvilte, 14-5. The Lakers, forced to play in this tourney without pitcher Bev Conaway. got a good hurling job from 'Shirley Adleman, one of the most versatile players around. Miss A Jleman didn't allow a hit for six innings although Wood River bunched three runs in the fifth frame with the aid of three Laker errors The Royals finished with two hits as Adleman struck out two and waited seven. The Lakers Jumped on starter Linda Marmino quickly, scoring five runs in the first inning. They bunched five hits. Marilyn Harris' triple and catcher Cherie Brauer's hit to left gave the Lakers another run in the second. The Lakers scored another run in the fourth on Irene Memno's hit and an error. The Royals cut the lead to four runs in the fifth with three runs. Wood River threatened again In the seventh Inning. Linda Burns singled, Sandy Maguratty walked tnd Pam Frieman sin' »led to drive in Burns. Adleman then got her pitching opponent, Marmino ground out to end the game. The Lakers collected nine hits with Brauer getting two of them. Kirkwood scored to every Inning but one to easily beat CollinsvtBe and Dodie Cairns. ColUnsville scored three times In the top of the third for a 3-1 lead omy to have Kirkwood tie it in the bottom of the inning on catcher Janet Douglas' two- run hom«. ColUnsville came back with Outdoors with John Stetson The next four weeks may be all the time remaining for the 90th Congress to write the final chapter of its conservation record, according to the Wildlife Management Institute. The congressional leadership currently shows no sign of abandoning its schedule for sine die adjournment on August 3 to clear the way for the members' attendance at the national political conventions. Regardless of whether the Congress meets that date, this second session could end soon. All bills that have not gone the full legislative route die with its closing and, if re-introduced, will have to start from the beginning in the 91st Congress next year. . Situations will be changing daily, but a brief survey of the major conservation issues shows the work remaining before Con gress. Outdoor Recreation The most critical problem facing the future of federal and state outdoor recreation programs is adequate provision for paying for the lands that must be acquired and developed. This is done largely through the Land and Water Conservation Fund, designed to receive monies from several sources, for allocation to federal and state agencies for approved recreation projects. The Fund is in a fix; there is not enough income to pay for all the expensive federal park, sea lakeshore and recreation areas that Congress has authorized. The backlog of unfunded projects mounts. Land costs spiral upwards, and the solution of urgent social problems and the huge costs of an unpopular war make the early completion of these important recreation projects more and more unlikely. Congress Is seeking to help Stabilize the Land and Water Conservation Fond through the enactment of S. 1401, which would authorize the appropriation of $3W million annually, with toe difference between actual appropriations and the fttt million level being made up by transfer of receipts from Outer Continental Shelf leas- tog. A House-Senate confer • moe committee has agreed on a comprise version of the bill, and the final floor action may come wm- The problem with S. 1411 has i in Uw> Senate, and con- are urging i to support the F " > i i >' L^t " except that it called for selling national forest lands, administered in the Department of Agriculture, to help pay for a park that would be administered by the Department of the Interior. Many conservationists and others, while endorsing a large park, found this feature unacceptable. The House committee's version provides for a disappointingly small park. It does uphold long-standing policy that national forest lands should not be sold or battered in support of unrelated federal projects by dropping the forest trade provision of the Senate bill. Final action on a Redwood National Park bin will require a House floor vote, a House - Senate conference committee to resolve the differences in the versions approved by each side, and confirmation votes on the conference committee language by the House and the Senate. Favorable congressional action on the amendment to the Land and Water Conservation Fund will have much bearing on the outcome of the Redwood Park proposal. Some influent ial Congressmen say that the fate of the Redwood Park rests on proof of the ability of the nation to pay for it. This means that beefing up the Fund, as proposed in S. 1401, would help encourage Congress to approve an adequate park to preserve more of the giant trees. The outlook is not good for a North Cascades National Park In Washington this year. There are no imminent threats to the area's naturalness, such as there are to the California redwoods. Virtually all of toe country already Is in public ownership* under the administrate, and some of it is in designated wilderness areas. Congress should approve both a national scenic or wild rivers program and a national trails system this session. Bills to accomplish this are progressing in both the House and Senate, although conference committees doubtlessly will have to settle differences over the number of wild rivers an dtralJs covered initially in the protection systems and those that are put Into a study and recommendation category. Likely to be pushed aside In the drive for adjournment are bills to create an Apostle Islands National Lakeshore in Wisconsin, Biscayne National Monument, Florida, and other worthy but less legislatively advanced, proposals.

Dr. Fager Winner Over Damascus By ED SCHUYLER JR. Associated Press Sports Writer Manny Ycaza showed with Damascus, placed with a helicopter and won with Dark Mirage. Damascus carried the veteran jockey home third behind Dr. Fager and Bold Hour Thursday in the $107,100, 1%-mile Subru- ban Handicap at Aqueduct. About 23 minutes later a helicopter placed Ycaza at Monmouth Park, 25 air miles from Aqueduct. Dark Mirage then carried him home first in the $54,650 Monmouth Oaks over 1% miles. The Suburban and Monmouth Oaks were the headliners of a busy Fourth of July stakes program. Saturday's stakes card win feature the $100,000-added, 1%mile Hollywood Derby for 3- year-olds at Hollywood Park. Ycaza had Damascus close to Dr. Fager for most of the Suburban, but Mrs. Edith W. Bancroft's 1967 Horse of the Year faded in the stretch as Dr. Fager raced to a two-length victory over George D. Widener's Bold Hour . Damascus was another three lengths back, followed by Paul Mellon's Amerigo Lady and Mrs. Frances Center's In Reality. Dr. Fager, owned by William L. McKnight and carrying 132 pounds, one less than Damascus, broke the stakes record of 2:00 3-5 and tied the track record of 1:59 3-5. The first prize of $69,615 out of the gross purse of $107,100 boosted Dr. Fager's carer earnings to $776,237. The $10,700 Damascus earned for third lifted his career bankroll to $943,316. After the race, Ycaza took off from the Aqueduct infield aboard a chartered helicopter enroute to Monmouth Park and an easy victory aboard Lloyd I. Miller's Dark Mirage, who is making a rout of the 3-year-old filly division. Dark Mirage, the 710-pound speedster who was a $6,000 yearling, completed the Monmouth Oaks in 1.51 2-5 for her eighth consecutive victory of the year, the last seven coming in stakes.

AP) — For WilUam Caleb Yarborough speed is a way of life- he normal, slow way of doing things just doesn't agree with this son of a South Carolina tobacco fanner. Yarborough—just "Cale" to ans of late model stock car rac- ng—fractured the auto racing record book Thursday when he nreezed to a 167.247 mites an lour victory in an accident-free Firecracker 400. That's about 14 miles an hour 'aster than it has ever been done before and eclipses all- line race, records at Daytona and even Indianapolis. Cale's reaction? A smile on his boyish face and a prediction that he'll snap the magic 190 m.p.h. mark in qualifying here next February if the rules aren't changed on him. But it is not just at the wheel of his Mercury—which easily outpaces the two-engine plane :ale pilots—that Cale Yarborough dwells on speed. The 29-year-old has a young dry .cleaning business and even that sideline business pushes speed under the name "60-Minute Dry Cleaners." His pit crew tops the 22-gallon gas tank and changes two tires in about 18 seconds, fast enough for Cale to turn the trick Thursday four times without giving away a lead or a lap. He was out front for 142 of the 160 laps. n INTERNATIONA U.BAOUE t Bulttto 4, CoJUirabuj iTlvJ taobgi r *i«S&MY%_'. «* _I)MMMJ9r »•! 0.1 tavwe «t Toledo, rain Yarborough Is Speedy Guy He has 1968 winnings of $96,781. If being first has become a habit for Cale, being second is becoming almost as much of a habit for Lee Roy Yarbrough of Columbia, S.C.—no relation but driver of a Mercury that is twin to Cale's. Lee Roy was second at the Daytona 500 in February, the Atlanta 500 in April and again Thursday in the Firecracker 400 which Cale called "the easiest big race I've ever won." Yarbrough was two laps back at the Firecracker finish but still captured $8,595 for his trouble. The Yarborough-Yarbrough Mercurys continued Ford Motor Co.'s domination over the Plymouth-Dodge entries although each side on the corporate battle took five slots of the top 10. Mercurys were one-two with David Pearson of Spartanburg, S.C., in a Ford finishing third. Darel Dieringer, Charlotte, N.C., was fourth in a Plymouth but Dwayne "Tiny" Lund of Cross, S.C., put Ford back on the plus side with his Mercury in fifth. Dodge took the next four slots with Paul Goldsmith, Munster, Ind., Sixth; Bud Moore, Charlotte, N.C., seventh, Bobby Isaac, Catawba, N.C., eighth bach, Georgetown, Ind., ninth, and pole-sitter Charlie Glotz- Jim Hurtublse of North Tonawanda, N.Y., rounded out the first 10 in a Mercury. Bob Veale Not Conceding Yet CHICAGO (AP) - Hold it a minute, don't concede the National League pennant to the St. Louis Cardinals. The Cardinals appear to be making such a runaway of things that someone already has figured out the magic number and even delved into what the race would look like under a divisional setup. But the Pittsburgh Pirates, In general, and southpaw Bob Veale in particular, don't think they're out of it and proved It again Friday with a 4-0 victory over Chicago on Veale's two- hitter. This made it eight victories in the last nine games for the Pirates who started their charge out of the cellar June 13 and have since won 18 of 24. "Best game I've ever pitched," said Vaele who was posting his fifth straight vlcto- ry after getting off to a 2»7 record, "I wasn't worried about that VI business. I knew I was pitching well enough to win. Veale lost three of those g mes while the Pirates were ing blanked and five of the losses were by one run. His marvelous performance against the Cubs saw him give up only two infield hits, one tp Glenn Beckert in the first inning and another to Jim Hick man in the eighth. In between, Veale retired 22 men in a row. "Didn't throw many pitches for a change," said Veale, "because there weren't many walks. Only one. I didn't even break a sweat. It was nice and cool out there. "I've said all along we're going to do something this year," he continued. "A streak here and a streak there. Who knows, something might happen to the Cardinals and a team playing baU then has a chance." Pirate Manager Larry Shep herd concurred when he was asked if it didn't bother him that his team was playing great ball but now showing any real gains against the Cardinals "We play our schedule and if the Cardinals Keep winning, we can't do anything about it," said Shepherd. "But I expect some changes after the All-Star, game,"" be continued. "Cincinnati and Chicago both will put it together just like we did. Atlanta can play good ball. And the nals, well they're due to .run into a losing streak. ' showing sips of, Trevino Ties ) For First ! With Boros GRAND BLANC, Mich. (AP) — Lee Trevino, the 28-year-old super sensation of the PGA circuit, and late-blooming veteran JuUus Boros were the front runners going into today's third round of the $125,000 Buick Open at Warwick Hills. Trevino, who gained fame with his victory in' the U.S. Open, shot a four-under-par 68 over the 7,100.-yard, par 72 course Friday to move him to the lead after two rounds. Added to his 70 in the first round, his 138 total score gave him a one-stroke lead over the 47-year-old Boros. Steady with his long game and putting with a new club, Boros carved a 69 out of Warwick. Boros needed 30 putts in each round. He said he changed putters after the Cleveland Open, where he finished way off pace last week. : Trevino made the turn at 33, three under par, with the help of an eagle on the par 5, 491- yard 13th hole. Two strokes off the pace at 140 were Tom Weiskopf, the sc- ond leading money winner on the PGA tour; Fred Marti of Baytown, Tex., and 25-year-old John Stevens of Wichita, Kan. Marti was six under when a severe weather warning caused a half-hour halt in play late in the day. He came back and bo- gied the Itfih and 17th holes to wind up with a 70.
