ST. LOUIS ( A P ) -- "You never cruise, especially against a ball club like that," a perspiring Boh Gibson maintained. The aging Gibson, staked to an early lead, underlined the notation Monday night by bearing down and stopping the Pittsburgh Pirates 4-0 on a four-hitter. His top performance of the season checked his string of defeats at five and capped a St. Louis Cardinals sweep of a doubleheader. "Sometimes you just have to pifch yourself out of a rut," observed Gibson. 4-8, who struck out 11 and walked three after a 3-1 Cards triumph in the opener. "I felt fairly good tonight." he confessed, "but I've been feeling good for the past two or three weeks. "Basically it was a matter of not hanging a lot of sliders like I'd been doing. I think I'd been hanging one out of every three." The 38-year-old Gibson per- niitted singles by Paul Popovich. Gene Clines and Mike Ryan and a double by Richie Zisk leading off the fourth. n u t lie fanned Pirates rookie Mario Mendozu after a spectacular c a t c h by Lou Brock thwarted a second-inning threat and struck out Willie Slargell and Kurt Bevacqua after Zisk doubled. Meanwhile, Pirates pitcher Larry Demery, 0-3, surrendered Jim Dwyer's first major league home run in the second and served a three-run homer to Ted Simmons an inning later. "I've been throwing the ball good for a month," insisted Gibson, who has yielded 12 hryne runs, "but I've been giving up that long ball after a walk." The Cards, who totaled only five hits, also made the most of six singles in the opener. Four of the blows included run-produciirg smashes by Ken Reitz and Mike Tyson in the second off ex-Cardinal Jerry Reuss, 6-5, and a third run scored on an error. Righthander Alan Foster, 35, survived Richie Hebner's leadoff home run in the sixth and drew relief help from Orlando Pena and Mike Carman the final two inning 5 . Pirates Manager Danny Murf a u g h , whose club has lost five of six games since winning six straight, was down over the double loss.' "I thought when we hit that streak we might be g o i n g " Murtaugh lamented. "Now it looks like we've cooled off again." WFL Will Actively Tap NFL Talent NEWPORT BEACH, Calif. (Al'1 -- T h e ' W o r l d Football League has vowed to "vigorously continue" efforts to sign National Football League play crs after a Texas appellate court ruling that cleared the way for WFL recruiting of Dal las Cowboy athletes.

Darkness halted ompctilion with the Belleville !.. native holding a 6-1, 7-9 6-2 ?ad. that had halted WFL recruiting of players from the National Football League team. WFL Commissioner Gary L. Davidson, organizer of the'new league, said the ruling confirmed the WFL's belie! "in the freedom of competition between leagues and t h e . freedom of players to have viable alternatives in choosing employers " He added that the WFL "has not, and will not in the future, violate the valid terms of any presently existing contract . . ." He said players obligated to the NFL for 1975 and who have signed with the WFL would not join the WFL until 1976. Tex Schramm, Cowboys' president and general manager, said he would have no comment on Judge Batcman's decision until club attorneys read the opinion. Texas District Court Judge Charles Long had issued an injunction that barred WFL recruiting of Cowboys Calvin Hill Craig Morton and Mike Montgomery. The injunction was granted to the Cowboys, who described jhe WFL recruiting as "raiding." Hill, Morton and Montgomery h a d signed contracts w i t h Hawaii, Houston and Birmingham, of the WFL, respectively. Baleman disagreed with the Cowboys' claims that the WFL recruitment was illegal meddling in player contracts. "We must consider the freedom of contract of the individual players as well as the rights of the club under its present contracts," he said. "Bargaining for future services is a matler of economics. The club can assure itself of lie continued services and loy- ilty of its players by offering hem long term contracts and ither f i n a n c i a l inducements. If t chooses not to do so for economic reasons, if has no legal round to complain if the play- ;rs look elsewhere for their fu- ure careers and enter into con- ract-s for services to be performed when their present con- racls with the club expire." The WFL also has signed a lumber of players from other Â·Â·FL clubs to contracts for 1976 )nc club guaranteed J3.5 mil- ion to hire Larry Csonka, Paul Varfield and Jim Kiick from he Miami Dolphins. Other NFL stars to sign with he fledgling league include quarterback Daryle Lamonica of Oakland, linebacker Bill Bergey of Cincinnati and running back Larry Smith of the Los Angeles Rams.
