John retired 12 of the first 13 Giant batters beore singles by Matthews and Kingman and Chris Speier's two-run double mined his shutout bid in the fifth. WF Gome Postponed West Fork American Legion baseball Coach Alvy Early announced Saturday that the game scheduled for today between West Fork and Russellville has been postponed by rain. It will be rescheduled. INDIANAPOLIS (AP) -- A.J. Foyt wadded up a used paper coffee cup and, with an unhesitating motion, flung it into a receptacle some 20 feet away. "Twenty-fifteen vision." he said proudly. "Same as when I started racing here 16 years ago." It was one of those brief moments of relaxation in the car sheds of Indianapolis Speedway's Gasoline Alley. At his feet was the low-slung red and chromium Gilmore racing machine which Foyt will throttle from the pole position in Sunday's 58th 500-mile test. This is the 17th consecutive start in the race for the leather-tough Texan, his third time out from the pole and his bid for an unprecedented fourth championship. Reports are that this may be Foyt's last hurrah at old Indy lha't he has promised his wife Lucy and his three teen-age kids that he will hang up the helmet on his 40lh birthday. That comes next Jan. 16. Foyt shrugs oft such a sug gestion. EYES STILI. GOOD "Lucy and the children haven't been after me to quit,' he said. "I figure I'll continue racing as long as my eyes stay good. People keep saying tha you lose your reflexes and your nerves in this game. I don" think so. I think it's all in th eyes." Around the old asphalt ova that they call" "the brickyard,' the name of A.J. Foyt rever berates with a special kind o ring. It's a sound wave re- erved only for immortals. The ing is back. They talk about him along he smelly, engine-churning al ey where 32 other of the world's great drivers are preparing to challenge the man on he pole for the close to $300,000 irst prize and the biggest title n auto racing. Fellow drivers regard him a he best. This'time they know he has a good machine pro vided by Jim Gilmore of Kala mazoo, Mich., operator of chain of television stations am owner of car agencies. It aver aged 191.632 in qualifying tests. They talk about him in thi shops and lounges and in the grandstand of the huge racing lant, which will draw some 350,000 to Sunday's show. Jim my the Greek has made him a 5-1 favorite. LIKES FAVORITE ROLE Foyt, who can 'be a man moods, seems to delight in hi role of race favorite, but he ha been around the tracks too Ion to be lulled into a sense of fals security. "It takes a lot of racin luck." he said. "In 1969 thought 1 had the race won. I was the last time I was on th pole. But a $2 gadget went ba and I lost 22 minutes in the pil Last year at Pocono, Roge McCluskey had an eight-secon lead on me and I had to take five-second pit stop for fuel. "My engine was burning u and it was a mirele I finish« McCluskey ran out of fuel wit less than a lap to go.
