They added four more gold medals in boxing Saturday night as Lemuel Steeples, Jackie Beard, Bernard Taylor and Tony Tucker scored victories. The U.S. women's soft- ball team, behind the one- hit pitching of Barbara Reinalda, also won the gold medal by beating Puerto Rico 2-0. Overall, the U.S. has now won 125 gold medals in the two weeks of competition at the Games more than twice as many as its nearest competitor, Cuba. In addition, the U.S. picked up three more golds in yachting and it could add one more Sunday in the finals of the individual show jumping. Embarassed by their dismal performance at the Games, the majority of the Cuban delegation left San Juan early Saturday morning aboard the Cuban boat Heroes of Vietnam and sailed back to their homeland. The boxing team, however, led by two- time Olympic heavyweight champion Teofilo Stevenson, was able to save face by winning five gold Inedals. In track, Paige, the 22- year-old favorite from Villanova, won the men's j ,500 meter race with a Pan American record time of and Todd Harbour, 19, of Post Isabel, Tex., made it 1-2 when he nosed put Brazilian Agberto The U.S. also had 16 silvers and 11 bronzes for its best showing in years Sweepstakes event held at Twin Lakes LA MARQUE-The Twin Lakes Ladies Golf Association held sweep- stakes competition Sunday with the threesome of Dorothy McDermott, Marge Snow and Margaret Blackburn winning the Event with a-15. -In second place was the foursome of Mitzi Oliphint, Rita Marcoulides, Lee Gazaway and Verda Bannister with a score of 21. while the Cubans had 10 silvers and nine bronzes, and the Canadians three golds, three silvers and 12 bronzes.

The 5-foot-4, 120 pounder belted his taller opponent around the ring for all three rounds. Beard slowed Pizzaro im- mediately with several body shots and them beat him savagely for the remainder of the fight. Taylor, the silver medalist in the 1975 Pan Am Games, also won easily, 5-0 over Naudi Pinero of Venezuela. Taylor took to the offense quickly in the first round and scored well all during the fight with combinations to the head and body. Steeples also put on a masterful performance in defeating Hugo Hernandez of Argentina in a battle of left handers. Steeples belted Hernandez around the ring with ringing right hooks to the head and rapid- fire combinations. Tucker dropped Dennis Jackson of Puerto Rico with a powerful right hand to the head just 70 seconds into the fight and then rocked him with another good right. Tucker con- tinued to land heavily throughout the fight and at 1 the end, Jackson, a loci hero, was roundly booed by the crowd for his back- pedalling tactics and failure to fight. The other two U.S. boxers Richard Sandoval of Pomona, Calif., and James Shuler of Philadelphia, had their bouts end in con- troversy. Sandoval was a 5-0 loser to Hector Ramirez of Cuba in the light flyweight division, a decision that was booed lustily by the capacity crowd at the Roberto Clemente Coliseum, and Shuler had his fight with Jose Molina of Puerto Rico stopped after being cut in the eye. The women's softball team avenged the loss of the men on Friday night when Reinalda, the 22-year- old pitcher for the world champion Raybestos Brakettes, had seven strikeouts and yielded just a fifth-inning single to Maria Ramana en route to the victory, her third in the Pan-Am Games.

(UPI) Running back Theotis Brown of UCLA Sunday rejected the St. Louis Cardinals' contract offer that included a donation to charity. Joe Sullivan, vice president of operations, said the contract was refused after he had a "lengthy meeting" with Brown and his represen- tative, Leigh Steinberg. Club owner Bill Bidwill Saturday offered to donate the money to the Jesuit Program for Living and Learning in St. Louis if Brown, the team's No. 2 draft choice, came to contract terms. Bidwill said Steinberg originally proposed the charity contribution. "We had assumed the conditions for an agreement set down by Mr. Steinberg had been met when we announced ac- ceptance of his suggestion for giving to charity the differential remaining between the two Sullivan said. "However, this was unacceptable to them, and they have continued to negotiate for a contract beyond the terms we already set down as a last offer." Sullivan said the Car- dinals will reduce their offer to Brown by a day for each day he is not signed and in uniform. He said Bidwill has promised to turn over to the Jesuit program regardless of the outcome of the negotiations. Steinberg has questioned the timing of the team's charitv offer. "I made the offer (about a charity donation) with respect to our original negotiating he said. "I said it back when we were way, way far apart in our figures. "So now with that offer in the past since we dropped our demands down to very rock bottom to make a deal, now they want to make up the difference in donations." He added: "I'm excited that they have taken a sudden interest in com- munity affairs. We're very happy that the money is going to charity." moved to third on Jim Gantner's single.
