Even though the buoyant Cincinnati Reds buried the Philadelphia Phillies 14-7 Sunday for their 12th victory in 15 games. there was no reason for the Dodgers to hit the panic button. They still hold a juicy, eight game lead in (he National League West race, you see. "I honestly feel we will win more than 90 games, even after bad start." said Cincinnati Manager Sparky Anderson. "The trouble Is, Idon't know if it will he enough to catch the Dodgers." While Ihe Reds have been on a streak, the front-running Dodgers have been, too. Despite winning 80 per cent of their games in the past few weeks, the Reds have gained only one game on Los Angeles.

Iwo in a row is just a couple of car lengths short of heaven. And Gale Yarborough? Well, he now stands at six for the season, is beginning to pad a healthy point lead in his bid for his first stock car racing championship, and is piling up a lot of cash along the way.

And, so, ignoring the hollering of a "Jacket Day" throng of 46,812 in Milwaukee, the A's ran up a quick lead Sunday and held on to beat the Brewers 5-4. In Detroit, though, a screaming "Bat Day" crowd of 42.491 shook up a pair of California outfielders and helped the Tigers to defeat the nosediving Angels 5-3. 'In Sunday's other American League games, the New York Yankees edged Minnesota 4-3, Texas trimmed Baltimore 3-2, Boston belted Chicago lfl-6 and Cleveland beat Kansas City 8-6.

DICK HOYT BELIEVES: 1. The Sheriff's Office should be a co-ordinating agency for all reserve police groups. 2. The Sheriff's Posse can be used in a wider role than it has been in the past. 3. The Beaver Lake Patrol can work in harmony in both Benton and Washington counties. 4. The Tri County CB Radio Association can be used to assist in many instances as the "eyes" of the Sheriffs Dept. 5. The use of a female employee as Civil Deputy is practical for the duties of serving legal papers for the Courts and attorneys. DICK HOYT Is a man whose reputation for honesty, integrity and fairness is unquestioned. A man whose experience in law enforcement will enable him to provide an outstanding administration.

(AP) - Some of the coaches at the 53rd annual NCAA Track and Field meet got their hackles up over the presence of foreigners but Tennessee proved winning the championship was possible without any of the polished performers from other countries. The Volunteers didn't need a foreigner for any of their 60 points as defending champion UCLA was unseated for the first time in four years. While second - place UCLA, which finished with 56 points had only one foreigner--a pole vaulter from France. Brigham Young got 31 points from for eigners; Texas-El Paso 24 of its 25 points.

Sweden was the top point producer with 33; Kenya had 26, Great Britain 14. A poll of NCAA coaches at the meet indicated that 65 PIT cent of them wanted to bar foreigners from competing for points in the collegiate meet. The title was Tennessee's first. It had finished fifth last year and in 1967. The 53rd annual meet had its share of controversy plus outstanding performances. Texas Southern University Coach Dave Bethany charged his team was a victim of racism after his mile relay team was disqualified for passing out of its lane Friday. He escalated the charge to "bigotry" after his '140-yard relay team was disqualified the next day. However, the rules committee ruled that the 440 relay team did pass the baton on the anchor lap in the proper space and the Tigers look second in that event. Bethany called for more black officials. particularly "I believe most Arkansans are paying more than their fair share of taxes." "We need to take a close look at the many tax loopholes and give some relief to the people who keep this country going. There aren't enough men in Congress today who will fight for a really fair tax system. 1 will if you'll help me." Vote Clinton for Congress District 3-June 11.
