His three-year-old bay son, Swinging Apache, ran away with the classic in a style reminiscent of his famous sire's wins at the Kentucky Derby and The Preakness. The gelding, a 3-5 favorite, led from gate to wire under jockey Basil Frazier and brought home a purse for owner Frank McMahon of Vancouver. It was his fifth win in five He starts and boosted his total winnings to McMahon bought the horse as a yearling for at an E. P. Taylor sale. Stengel Honored NEW YORK (AP) In a surprise climax Saturday to the New York Yankees' an- nual Old Timers Day in honor of former manager Casey Stengel, the club re-- tired his uniform No. 37. This figure joins the other numbers of Yankee greats who have been so honored: Babe Ruth's No. 3, Lou Geh- rig's No. 4; Joe DiMaggio's No. 5 and Mickey Mantle's No. 7. The uniform blouse was presented by his former star battery of Whitey Ford and Yogi Berra. Slengel, in probably Ihe briefest acceptance speech of his career, said: "Now I've got my own No. 37. I'll die in it." The LARGEST ASSORTMENT of imported styles in LETHBRIDGE Last month, Fanfreluche, a Northern Dancer filly, captured the Manitoba Derby and another offspring, Nijinsky, has swept all the tap'three-year-old classics in England this year. Swinging Apache, trained by riding-great Johnny Longden's son, Vance, did the distance in three-quarters of a length ahead of Prebens Pride, owned by L. R. Watrin and L. E.

Brian Allin, a 140-pound Viet- nam veteran, showed steely nerves under tremendous pres- sure to turn near-disaster into his first tournament victory as a pro. He won and the Carling Cup with his seyen-under-par total of 67-69-73-209 on the Richmond Country Club course.

Allin dropped a stroke behind on the 16th .when he scored a five on the par-four hole, but bounced ahead again by birdying the 17th as Vollmer took a one-over five after his approach shot bounced over the sun-baked green. As they started the 18th. Bolts, Sorensen and Jetter had already finished at five-under, and a tie seemed likely. But Allin out-drove Vollmer for the first time in the round, then drilled a three-iron shot to within four feet of the pin on the par-five hole. Vollmer's ap- proach shot again bounced over, virtually eliminating Ms chances of snatching victory. The Vancouver pro made a good recovery for a birdy and a tie for second. With most of the more than spectators massed around the green, Allin stepped up and canned the putt for his eagle, touching off an explosion of ap- plause. Buchanan of Edmonton finished third, IVi lengths off the winner. "He did it all by said Frazier, the 32-year-old Spokane, Wash., native, who was up on a record 121 winners in the British Columbia circuit last year. 'My main job was to prevent him from relaxing dur- ing the early part of the race." Genry Rasmussen, who guided Prebens Pride, s Swinging Apache just couldn't be caught in the race for three- year-olds foaled in Canada. "He was too much horse for said Hasmussen, 30, of Big Valley, Alta. Rasmussen won the 1967 Derby aboard Gilmore.

Pre- bens Pride cut the lead by a length in the stretch but the fa- vorite was still running strong. A record persons wag- ered on the 41st running of the race, the most ever bet on the derby. The previous rec- ords were set in 1968 when fans wagered opener and the slender south- paw went on to nail his 15th vic- tory with relief help from. Mel Queen. Johnson stroked two more sin- gles, boosting his average to .323, and scored twice in the nightcap. He trails league- leader Carl Yastrzemski of Bos- ton by three points in the AL batting race. Egan, who completed his two-week Air Force stint with Johnson, caught both games and poled an eight-inning homer in the opener. Chuck Dobson, who had a 6-11 lifetime mark against the Twins, handed them their first' shutout setback in 126 regular season games1 to trigger Oak- land's sweep before a season- high Minnesota crowd of He fired a four-hitter for his seventh consecutive victory since the All-Star break. CONTRIBUTES SIX Mincher, discarded by the Twins four years ago, drove in two runs in the first game, then delivered four in the nightcap with his 19th and 20th homers. Hoy White powered the Yan- kees past Baltimore in the first tying it with a two-out, :wo-run single in the ninth and poling a two-run homer in the llth. Meanwhile when players on ;he same baseball jurgh Pirates in this ease start talking in opposite direct- ions it generally means one thing: Pennant fever is spreading. It was running rampant in Hie Bucs' no one would admit it-after they advantage of N e w York pitching problems Sunday to turn back the Mets 8-3 and re- gain a lead in the Na- Sonal League East Division. The teams wrap up the four- me series tonight with the Mets sending their ace, 16- g a m e -w i n n s r Tom Seaver, against Dock Ellis, 12-8.

"It's too early to say what's oing to Roberto Clemente insisted, "but we have o do it right now. "We have to get into a good losition for that last month." The Mets and Pirates play even of their final 10 games this year against each other. Nolan Ryan was nursing a 3-2 ead when the Bucs opened the eventh inning with a walk and runners on second and liird, as Hyan threw Matty Alou's sacrifice bunt past first iase. In came Ray Sadecki who roceeded to give up three more of them intentional a pair of run-scoring sur ;les and a sacrifice fly and the 6-3.

The throw came a little late and umpire Nicholas Colosi indicates Foy is safe.
