San Francisco Giants Stop Gaylord Perry, whose own problems were cured through analysis, is causing traumas throughout the National League. The lean righthander of the San Francisco Giants cleared up his future after a few sessions with that noted psychologist, D. Frank Shellenback in spring training and has given opponents nightmares by winning his first five decisions. The 27-year-old Perry an- nounced his arrival as the strong second fiddle to brilliant Juan Marichal Wednesday night when he stopped the Pittsburgh Pirates 6*1 on six hits and increased the Giants rapidly expanding N.L. lead to four games. The primary thing Perry did wrong last year was lose games—12 in 20 decisions. But whatever Shellenback did at Phoenix has made a new man of Perry. Me has pitched three complete games, struck out 35 batters in 41 innings and posted a fine 1.97 earned run average. His 84 record is the second best in the majors behind Mariehals' (M).

An occasional light shower Ending Career w as forecast to dot the Lakewood Country Club course, but an occasional light shower should not bother the touring nros who have become accustomed to torrential deluges during the past three weeks. The rains which washed out the Houston Champions International tournament last week £ lashed the 7,020-yard par 72 Lakewood layout. But the course has just about dried out, and tournament officials say it Phil Rodgers, fifth-leading money winner on the tour this year, said the rough was tougher this year than last. "If you are not in the fairway," he said, "you are going to have a hard time coming out of the rough." A five-under-par 67 has already been turned in on the course this week, however, by young Warren Yates of Atlanta, who led Tuesday's qualifying for non-exempt golfers. Golf's two biggest drawing cards, Arnold Palmer and Jack Nicklaus, arrived in New Orleans Wednesday aboard Palmer's private jet. They are scheduled to tee off today back to back during the noon hour. Athlet Reg is in perfect condition.

Knicks Draft Cazzie Russell NEW YORK (UPI) -The New York Knickerbockers have drafted Cazzie Russell—now they must hope that the U.S. Army doesn't. The Knicks grabbed the best player in college basketballfor the second straight season Wednesday when they chose Russell as their No. 1 pick in the annual National Basketbal Association draft meeting. Now they hope they don't fail to sign their top pick for the second straight year. Last year they drafted Bill Bradley, who became an American golk hero by leading Ivy League Princeton to the SCAA semifinals. But Bradley spurned a Knick $100,000 contract to go to Oxford on his Rhodes Scholarship. Russell still has orrles that the Army might draft him since at 6-feet-5%, he's one-half inch under the Army's 6-6 height limit. Heralded as the new Oscar Robertson ever since he came out of Chicago's Carver High School to star at the University of Michigan, Wes Coviflgton, once dubbed the "new Hank Aaron" and a hero of Milwaukee's only World Series championship, apparently has reached the end of his 10-year major league career. The power-hitting outfielder, who took a career batting average of .285 into the 1966 season, was unable to hand on with the last-place Chicago Cubs and was given his outright release Wednesday. He had only on ehit in 11 times at bat this year. Covington was just one of the casualties of baseball's final spring cleaning. All major league clubs roster to midnight Wednesday. Shines In Scries Covington started the 1957 season at Wichita, but was brought back by the Braves and starred in their run for the National League pennant, batting .284 with 21 homers in 96 games. He shone defensively as well in the 1957 World Series when Milwaukee beat the New York Yankees. Covington eventually played with the Phillies, White Sox, Athletics and Phillies before his final fling with the Cubs. Tom Cheney, who holds the all-time record for strikeouts in a single game with 21 in a 16- inning affair, was another to be chopped at cutdown date. He was dropped by the Washington 5 Win Over Red S Senators after a vain comeback attempt following arm troubles. The world champion Los Angeles Dodgers optioned southpaw pitcher Nick Willhite to Spokane on 24-hour recall and the American League champion Minnesota Twins optioned outfielder Ted Uhlaender and second baseman Chuck Schilling to Denver. Nossek Travels In another move, the Twins sent outfielder Joe Nossek to Kansas City for the $20,000 waiver price. Philadelphia Phillies optioned pitchers John Boozer and Steve Ridzik to San Diego; the St. Louis Cardinals sent pitchers Dennis Aust and Larry Jaster to Tulsa on option; the Cleveland Indians assigned infielder - outfielder George „ propel fro AltfCS Mitt Barry KODffl ..__ only V tw8 nit§ iifi&te fftn 6v6fr . ind wiS credited second victory against defeat*. hi ttw ftiifd stunt* Stilton ttow it totttog i robust Aifott 6*fW6 to fivs fttttt with bii 10th and ilth homers of the season, tops in the majors, to help map Atlanta's five-game losing streak.
