THE JOURNAL MONDAY, JUNE 7,1971 PAGE 7 Canonero II Is Still For Sale RECORD BREAKERS -Earl Cyrus (L) and Dan Forbush of Potsdam broke Van Dusen records Saturday as the Sandstoners won their seventh straight sectional crown. Cyrus ran the 180 yd. iow hurdles in 20.6 knocking tow-tenths of a second off the previous record of OFA's George Silver set in 1959. Forbush bettered his own mile record when he was clocked in 4:286 (O'Donnell Photo) Dodgers Defeat Mets; Mays Hero For Giants It seemed like old times for Richie Allen and the Los Angeles Dodgers until BUI Russell came off the bench to show them all some new tricks. Sandy Koufax fired fastballs, Duke Snider swung from the heels, a bird flew out of Casey Stengel's cap and Allen made himself disappear during the Dodgers' Oldtimers Day festivities Sunday. Then Russell, a last-minute replacement for the elusive Allen in the Los Angeles clean-up spot, smacked a single, double and triple to lead the Dodgers past the New York Mets 4-3. In other National League action, San Francisco dropped its doubleheader opener to Philadelphia 1-0 but won the nightcap 4-3 on Willie Mays' 12th inning homer; Pittsburgh outslugged Houston 9-8; Cincinnati toppled St. Louis 4-2; the Chicago Cubs downed Atlanta 6-3 and Sail Diego swept a twin bill from Mon- treal 8-0 and 8-4. In the American League, Baltimore edged Milwaukee 4-3; California tamed Boston 5-2; Oakland drubbed Washington 8-1; Minnesota shaded Cleveland 4-3; the New York Yankees stopped Kansas City 5-2 and the Chicago White Sox beat Detroit 8-2 before rain washed out their doubleheader nightcap. Allen, whose AWOL antics during his stormy days with the Phillies made headlines, was chatting with a friend in the Los Angeles clubhouse area while the Dodger Oldfimers went through their paces in a three-inning game. When the Dodgers tookthe field for the regular game, their controversial slugger still was missing. Manager Walter Alston hastily scratched Allen's name from the lineup and sent light- hitting Russell to the outfield. \The rule says you have to have nine men on the field,\ Alston said later. \With all the oldtimers running around, back and forth, we had a hard time corralling eight guys. We just didn't see Rich. \It looked a lot worse than what it was. It was non-intentional and unavoidable. It could have happened to anyone.\ The happening made Russell a No. 4 hitter for the first time in his major league career. Arid he made the most of it, keying a three-run rally with his fourth inning double and knocking in what proved to be the winning run with his triple in the fifth. 'I wasn't prepared to play,\ the young speedster said after boosting his batting average 21 points to .226 as the Dodgers trimmed another haltgame off San Francisco's West Division lead. \I just walked into the dugout, put my gloves under the bench and got ready to sit down when the buys ran onto the field. \Then the manager said 'Russell, get in left field,' and that was all there was to it. I grabbed my glove and ran out there. The Oldtimers dazzled a crowd of 48,227 which turned out for Dodger Stadium's 10th anniversary \festivities. Stengel, who doffed his cap and sent a sparrow aloft during a rhubarb at LAYJ>EN TO SPEAK =-*- Frank Lay den, head basketball coach at Niagara University will be the guest speaker at the OFA Awards Night Dinner Tuesday at the OFA cafeteria. Brooklyn's Ebbets Field 52 years ago, repeated the stunt. But this time, a pi- geon took flight from Casey's headgear. \That's inflation,\ shrugged Stengel. Philadelphia extended the Giants' June swoon to five consecutive setbacks in their doubleheader opener as Rick Wise tossed a three-hitter and Ron Stone delivered the only run with a sicth inning single off Steve Stone. It was the first shutout loss of the season for San Francisco. The Giants rebounded in the second game as Mays stroked a double to touch off a tying tworun rally in the ninth and then broke the deadlock in the 12th with his 641st career homer— and 13th this year. Dave Cash's first homer of the season, a bases-empty blast in the eighth, carried the Pirates past Houston and within one-half game of first-place St. Louis in the East. Willie Stargell drove in three Pitt- sburgh runs with a single and his 18th homer. Bob Watson produced four for the Astros with a double and homer. The Reds clipped the Cardinals on Lee May's three-run homer and the four-hit pitching of Don Gullett and reliever Joe Gibbon, who came on to blunt an eighth inning St. Louis rally. Joe Pepitone and Paul Popovich drilled home runs as the Cubs built a 6-0 lead behind Bill Hands and then withstood Hank Aaron's 17th homer and a tworun shot by Hal King in the ninth. Nate Colbert's grand slam homer propelled the Padres to. their second- game victory over Montreal after left- hander Dave Roberts blanked the Expos on nine scattered hits in the opener. Cancer Fatal To Steinmark HOUSTON, Tex. (AP) — Fred Steinmark, the plucky 21-year-old football star from the University of Texas, who refused to give up after being struck by cancer, died here late Sunday night with a recurrence of the disease. Death came 17 months after Stein- mark's left leg had been removed in an effort to stop the cancer. He had re-entered M. D. Anderson Hospital and Tumor Institute—where the original operation was performed— April 20. On Dec. 6, President Niixon was among the fans in Fayetteville, Ark. as the Longhorns made a fantastic rally to whip Arkansas 15-14 and gain the na- tional football championship. But six days later surgeons amputated Steinmark's left leg after discovering a bone tumor in his thigh. His remarkable recovery at first surprised even the medical experts. He returned .to Austin and continued his studies and last season served as an assistant coacn tor me Longhorns ana also scouted. He made marriage plans but the announced marriage date came several weeks ago with Steinmark in the hospital and gravely ill. He had been listed in critical condition since he was admitted and sources said then it was only a matter of time. Maple Defeats Lago's Sunday The Maple scored five runs in the first inning and were never behind as they defeated Lago's, 17-10 in a See-Way Slo- Pitch league Sunday. Jean Krause was the winning pitcher while Doug Reynolds was tagged with the loss. Dick McDonald and John Leopold hit homers for the winners. Dalton Sheppard had a perfect day at the plate for the winners collecting five hits while McDonald had four hits and Leopold three hits. Don Goult led the losers at bat with three hits while Dick Barlow, Larry Marlow and Reynolds each had two hits. On Thursday Lago's edged Rose's, 11-9 with Reynolds picking up the victory. NEW YORK (AP) — Pass Catcher is the Belmont Stakes winner but the talk of the thoroughbred racing world still is Canonero II, and the talking that counts •is that of attorneys and accountants. The Kentucky-bred pride of Ven- zeuuala, whose Triple Crown bid ended with a fourthplace finish in Saturday's Belmont, will almost certainly be sold— in fact, there have been reports'he has been sold but they have been denied by owner Pedro Baptista. \He will be sold after the Belmont, win or lose, if my terms are met,\ the Venezuelan industrialist said a few days before the Belmont. And despite Canonero IPs defeat and continued questioning of his fitness, it appeared Sunday that many people are interested in meeting Baptista's terms. \We already have had six telephone calls after the race from people con-. firming that they still want to buy Canonero II,\ Victor Scialom, a close friend, partner in ownership of other horses and spokesman for Baptista, said Saturday. As for reports that a deal had_ been made, Baptista denied Saturday before the race that a $3.1 million, 5-year leasing deal had been made with a Florida group and Scialom denied Sun- day that the colt had been sold to another Florida group for less than $2 million. Scialom also said an offer had been re- ceived from La Rinaconda, the race track in Caracas. Scialom said Baptista would call a news conference when a deal is con- sumated and would not have any statements before that. . , The other topic of conversation con- cerning Canonero II, besides his im- minent sale, continued to be his fitness. Trainer Juan Arias revealed Sunday -that a week before the Belmont he had. considered riot running the colt because of a skin rash and an infection in his right hind foot. But Arias said Canonero II responded to treatment and was healthy for the grueling l J /2-mile race. However, the trainer did feel that the rash and infection affected Canonero II in that it caused the colt to miss two days training a week before the race, and that he had to go easy on the colt on several other days. Perhaps the most notable thing about Pass Catcher's victory, except for the impressive way 1 it was accomplished, was the lack of attention it brought the winner. But trainer Eddie Yowell and owner Peter Kissel did not seem to mind the lack of attention. When newsmen and photographers showed up at Belmont Park Sunday they found that Pass Catcher had left by van about 5 a.m., EDT, for Monmouth Park, Yowell's base of operations. In Sudden Death Playoff Dickinson Defeats Nicklaus ATLANTA (AP) — \He's a tough, little man/' JackMcklaus said after he had bowed to wiry, chain-smoking veteran Gardner Dickinson in a sudden death playoff for the $25,000 first prize in the Atlanta Golf Classic. Each fired regulation 70's Sunday, tying for the top spot after the 72 holes with nine-under-par scores of 275.

Ottawa, Sunday when she won the Clarence McPhee Memorial Pace in the fast time of 2:02.4. The first quarter was timed in 29.1 seconds, the second in 33.3 but the final quarters were paced in 30 seconds with the last half in one minute flat. Antoinette Marie raced at Vernon Downs earlier this season. protege, who effects a white cap and many of Hogan's mannerisms, escaped with his eighth title in 20 years on the pro tour Sunday when Nieklaus three-putted the first extra hole for a bogey. \I was in pretty good shape, but I let it get away,\ said Nieklaus, probably the most feared competitor in the game today. Dickinson, at 43 one of the oldest men in the field, had to fight the strength- sapping heat and leg-testing hills of the 6,883-yard par 72 Atlanta Country Club course, also talked about putting. \I've been on the verge of playing well for quite some time,\ the slim, 135- pounder said. \I've finally got around the putting some. And that's a lot of pressure off your long game. \Nobody wins a golf tournament unless he putts real, real well.\ Onestroke back, and in contention all the way, were Lee Trevino and South African Gary Player, tied at 276. Trevino had a 70 and Player could manage only a 72. Tommy Aaron, who won this tour- nament a year ago, headed a group of four at 278. The others were Steve Reid, former PGA champion Ray Floyd, and young Johnny Miller. It was a four-way struggle most of the hot and humid day with Dickinson the overlooked man as the huge gallery whooped and hollered for their favorites—Nieklaus, Player and Trevino. At one time or another Dickinson, Player and Nieklaus all led or shared the lead. The drama came down to the final two finishing holes. Nieklaus and Trevino were on the par five 18th when Player and Dickinson were playing No. 17. Player had the lead at 13-under-par, Dickinson and Nieklaus were 12 and Trevino 11. Player, one of the world's greatest sand players, bogeyed from a trap. Dickinson got up and down from a trap to remain 12 under. At about the same time Nieklaus scored a two-putt birdie on the 18th and Trevino just missed on a 20-foot eagle putt he needed to gain a spot in the playoff. Player and Dickinson both reached a trap in front Of the 18th green in two. Player blasted out to seven feet—and missed the putt. He was out of it. Dickinson then blasted to two feet and sank the birdie putt that sent him in to the first tee for the playoff he won with a par. Fregosi Paces Angels Jim Fregosi is the California Angels' indispensible man, but the Boston Red Sox can do without him. The veteran shortstop, hobbled by a foot injury that kept him out of his normal position for several weeks, was a key man in Sunday's 5-2 victory over the Red Sox that extended Boston's skid to seven defeats in nine games and left them 1V2 games behind Baltimore in the American League East. Fregosi, who fielded brilliantly in California's 3-2 triumph on Saturday, socked his third homer Sunday and later singled and scored the Angels' second run as they pinned Sonny Siebert with his second straight setback after he won his first nine decisions. Elsewhere, Baltimore edged Milwaukee 4-3, Vida Blue hurled Oakland to an 8-1 victory over Washington, the New York Yankees cooled off Kansas City 5-2, Minnesota nipped Cleveland 4-3 and the Chicago White Sox battered Detroit 8-2 before the second game of their scheduled doubleheader was rained out with the Tigers ahead 2-0 in the fourth inning. In the National League, Philadelphia shaded San Francisco 1-0 but the Giants took the nightcap 4-3 in 12 innings, Cin- cinnati beat St. Louis 4-2, Pittsburgh outlasted Houston 9-8, Los Angeles held off the New York Mets 4-3, the Chicago Cubs whipped Atlanta 6-3 and San Diego swept Montreal 8-0 and 8^. Early in the season, Fregosi developed a growth on the bone between two toes of his right foot. It became infected follow^- ing a shot of medication and it took five weeks for the infection to disappear. Meanwhile, Fregosi has bided his time- mostly as a pinch hitter, with an oc- casional appearance in the outfield orat first base, where the strain on his foot isn't as great as when he plays short. \I figure the club needs me in there, so I play,\ said Fregosi, who decided against an operation during the season. \The pain is the worst when I swing and miss or when I have to go into the hole and make a long throw off my right foot.\ ' 'When he plays, he glues us together,'' said manager Lefty Phillips. \He's a helluva competitor. I said all spring the one man we couldn't afford to lose for a week or 10 days was Fregosi.\ . The Orioles unleased a 1-2 punch on the first two pitches thrown by Milwaukee's Marty Pattin in the seventh inning and came from behind to beat the Brewers and run their winning streak to five games. Pattin's bases-loaded double had given the Brewers a 2-1 lead in the sixth but Frank Rob-inson, who had homered in the fourth, connected again on pitch No. 1 to tie the score and Ellie Hendricks sent pitch No. 2 to the same fate. Mark Belanger eventually singled home what proved to be the winning run, offsetting Al Yates' first major league homer in the eighth.. Playing Malone Today OFA will play Malone this afternoon at 5:30 p. m. at Snell Field in a Northern League baseball piayoff game. The winner of the game will play in the sectional finals on Saturday afternoon. On Tuesday afternoon Potsdam will play Saranac Lake at 5:30 p. m. Both games will be broadcast by WPDM in Potsdam with Con Elliott and Kevin Mastellon handling the play by play. Rick Monday, drove in three runs with a homer and single and Gene Teriace also homered in support of Blue's four- hit pitching as Oakland turned back Washington. The sensational left-hander boosted his record to 12-2 and avenged an opening day defeat in Washington. New York staked Stan Bahnsen to a 5-0 lead in the third inning and the right- hander withstood successive sixth- inning ho-mers by Amos Otis and Ed Kirkpatrick for his third straight complete game triumph. Bahnsen ignited the Yankees' uprising with a single and the runs crossed on an infield out and singles by Bobby Murcer, Roy White, Thurrnan Munson and Felipe Alou. Rich Reese hammered his first home run of the season, a two-run shot in the third inning that started the Twins to victory over the Indians. Jim Holt's tri- ple and Leo Cardenas' single made it 3-0 and Brant Alyea's run-scoring single in the eighth enabled the Twins to withstand Cleveland homers by Graig Net-ties and Chris Chambliss. Jay Johnstone slugged a pair of homers, Bill Melton hit a solo shot and Tom Egaii ripped a two-run double in Chicago's de-feat of Detroit. The White- Sox kayoed Joe Colernan in the first inning. The rain then washed away a home run by Detroit's Gamtes Brown in the nightcap. A GIFT FROM MOSS TURLOCK, Calif. (AP) — Stirling Moss, who has won more road races than any driver in modern times, has another first, rle is the first professional athlete to enroll with the Medic Alert Foun- dation here as an organ donor. His bracelet indicates that upon death he wishes to donate his vital organs to medical science. Moss is one of more than 4,000 potential donors registered with Medic Alert. The best idea to come out of Detroit in years. Imitation is the sincerest form of flattery, some- one once said. And never before has our modest car been on the receiving end of so much flattery. What with the Big 3 auto makers coming out with a little 3. And one even promising not to change designs for five years. - Of course, it wasn't always like this. Take 1949, for instance. The only people who liked the Beetle then were the two who bought it. But being first with an idea also has its ad- vantages. Nobody, for example, has the experience we have working on a single small car. We've had the time to test our idea. And improve it thousands of times. And refine it thousands of times. Every step the others take, we've-been through before. In fact, it's kind of funny now. Watching the makers of 425 horsepower en- gines try to catch up with a Volkswagen.
