LOUIS (AP) -- Steve Carlton says he has no grudge against the St. Louis Cardinals, but they continue to be his prey. The 29-year-old lefthander pitched a four-hit shutout for seven innings Monday night and finished with an eight-bit- er for a 2-1 Philadelphia Phillies win. "No. there's no special feeling going against them," said Sarlton, whose victory raised Kis record against the Cards to 8-2 since traded by them in 1972. "You've got to make concen- tratlon consistent," he added. "I've always had the ability to concentrate, but when you're mechanically fouled up like I've been that doesn't always triumph was his third in a row, his second over do it."

Doctor Finds Humor Among The Serious Business Of Racing INDIANAPOLIS AP) -- For 3r. Thomas A. Hanna, a kinrl- y, hriglil-eyed wisp of a man, here is humor along with the ragedy at the Indianapolis Moor Speedway. "I swear this is true." he laid. "There was this middle- igcd couple parked corn Tori- ibly on the top row of otie of our bleacher sections.

"The man excitedly jumped ip with a side swipe of his ·ighl arm and his wife took off nlo outer space. She landed vith a dull thud, at least three stories below.

Dr H a n n a reports t h a i the man lat er called the i n f i e l d hospital to inquire about her health. Dr. Hanna is "sixtyish, 11 general practitioner -- f a m i l j dcclcr--in daily practice.

NEW ORLEANS (AP) -- The latest entry into the National Basketball Association walked away from the expansion draft with the best back court combination in the league, according to its owner. Fred Rosenfeld, owner of the new New Orleans franchise is particularly jubilant when he refers to the man selected to team up with supersar Pete Maravich in on the back line-Stu Laritz. "Stu, along with Maravich, gives us arguably the best back court in achievement for us lo claim Ihis," he said. Lantz. a six - year veteran from Detroit, averaged 8.9 points last season. Rosenfeld also believes the leam has excellent balance. "We have good big forwards and good small forwards; we lave good big guards and good ittle guards; we have depth at center," he said of the 15 players he picked from the estab- ished NBA teams. AWTREY AT CENTER John Block, 6 foot-10, of Kansas City-Omaha, and Steve Ku berski. 6-8, chosen from the world champion Boston Celtics, are expected to do the heavy work as forwards. And rugged Dennis Awlrey, 6-10. from Ihe Chicago Bulls probably will start at center. In the four years since the league last expanded only the B u f f a l o Braves have achiever, any notable success making it into the playoffs this year for the first time. The most successful of the second generation clubs--anc the one whose record the New Orleans team would most like o equal -- is the Milwaukee] Bucks. | New Orleans had the luxury of picking players in the draft without competition from other irst-year teams, a fact Rosenfeld cited when he said he exacts the still nameless franchise to post a better first year record than expansion teams of he past. Other players selected are: Jim Barnett. 6-4 guard from Mden State; Walt Bellamy, 6- II pivot from the Atlanta Hawks; Barry Clemens. 6-7 forward, Cleveland; E.G. Cole- man, 6-8 forward, Houston; Lamar Green. 6-8 forward. Phoenix; Nate Hawthorne, 6-4 guard, Los Angeles; Ollie Johnson. 6 6 forward, Portland; Bud Stallworth. 6-5 forward, Seattle; Toby Kimball, forward, 6-8 forward, Philadelphia; Louis Nelson, 6-3 guard, Washington, and Curtis Perry, 67 forward, Milwaukee. Rosenfeld says he expects spirited competition among these men for the five startini spots. "We will have an old fashioned camp in which every one has to fight for position.' he said. Bear's Dick Butkus Hints At Retirement From NFL NEW YORK (AP) -- Dick Butkus. the premier middle linebacker of the Chicago Bears who has been plagued by an arthritic knee, hinted Monday night that he would retire from pro football after nine seasons in the National Football League. After receiving the Most Courageous Player Award at the New York Pro Football Writers dinner, the burly Butkus said, "I am sorry it .has to end this way," but he did not say specifically that he was retiring. He said that some players have the opportunity to retire voluntarily, but others are forced to retire when they no longer can contribute. M e a n w h i l e , i n Chicago, B e a r s ' officials, including George Halas, long-time owner of the club and now board ihairman. said they had no in dication of Butkus 1 retiremen plans. "I haven'l talked with him in while," said the venerabli Walas, "and I don't know any thing about him retiring. If hi :ias done it, he has done it with out informing us." Dan Desmond, the club's di rector for press, radio and tele vision news, said he' was Una ware of Butkus' future plans. The powerful 6-foot-3. 245 pound Butkus, the Bears' No. draft choice in 1965 after a outstanding collegiate career a the University of Illinois, was member of the Associate Press' All-NFL team six times including five straight season from 1968-1972. He played in eight con secutive Pro Bowl games. e Cards and was labeled nil . st performance in 10 start! producing 5-3 record.

Charging Phils third baseman l i k e S c h m i d t , however, rabbed McBride's bunt in [he ir and threw to where second aseman Dave Cash was cov- ring first to double up Reitz. "Bake had to drive it by chmidt," Carlton observed. The key to the whole play is lat the pitch has to be a trike." "I'm getting paid to lake hances," remarked Phils Manger Danny Ozark, who or- ered the play. "I say if you sit till you get beat." ''I made pitches when T had o," summarized Carlton. who anned Tom Heintzelman for is fifth strikeout to end the ame. "The seventh, eighth and ilnth I was tired, but I hit the ireas that I had to," he said. ELECT BILL MURRAY SHERIFF For Washington Co.
