Ali scored a technical knockout in the round after driving Ellis into Hie ropes with repealed hard blows lo the face and body. Far from retiring Six decades for Durocher CHICAGO (API "I used lo sit next lo Miller Huggins and listen to him mumble. He was always said Leo Durocher, sitting with his chair tilted to the wall. Miller Huggins was the manager of New York Yan- kees in the 1920S' Leo Duro- cher goes that far back. He spans six decades of baseball, today. Durocher celebrates his 65th bh'hday. Retirement, hell. That's for old says Leo, who has applied for his major league pension. He'll receive a month, the absolute maxi- mum. More than any other man, Durocher's career extends from baseball's golden age of the 1920s to the present. He bi'okc in with the Yankees when daylight baseball and all-night poker games on hot train coaches were a way of life. He was part of a great Yan- Packers add onto lead Packers are leaving everyone in their dust as they increased the Coun'.ry Club golf league lead lo 16 points after Monday night's action.

He played in two World Series and two A11 -S t a r games. He managed three pennant winners and swept one World Seiies as a man- ager. In 1947 he was suspended for a year because of what then commissioner Happy Chandler called "conduct det- rimental to baseball." Earlier this season, there was pressure from the press that Durocher be fired follow- ing a breakdown between cer- tain players and the manager. Owner P. K. Wrigley made it clear that nobody can pres- sure him into firing his man- ager. He also chastised the players to quit crying and start performing. "Age doesn't mean a reasons Durocher. "some guys in their 60s go like 40; some guys in their1 40s are through." On his desk is a copy of Life magazine with Frank S'inatra, a personal friend of Durocher, on the cover- Sinatra is 10 years Leo's junior, but he has retired. "He's a great says Leo admiringly. Durocher doesn't admire too many people, at least not pubUcly. But he glows when he speaks of Sinatra, Willie Mays and especially the late Branch Rickey. He tells of the way Rickey would trade. How Rickey would talk down his players. Packers ink Gary Lane GREEN BAY, Wis. (AP) Green Bay Packers, in an effort lo strengthen thcii' quarterback situation, announced Monday they had acquired veleran Gary Lane, a free agent who has played with several teams. Lane, who played at Missouri under Dan Devine, now head coach and general manager of the National Football League team, was drafted in 1965 by Cleveland Browns and Buffalo Bills. He signed with the Br'owns and played with them in 1966 and 1967. He went to the New York Giants in 1968 and to the Los Angeles Rams in 1969. EXPORT'A' "The more Mr. Rickey would talk down a player, the more the other side would want the laughs Du- rocher. Durocher has a knack of getting the most out of his players, especially malcon- tents. A perfect and most re- cent example is dashing Joe Pcpitone who jumped two clubs before winding up in a Cub uniform. LET HIM PERFORM "I don't care what a guy did with another said Durocher then. "You come to me, you play ball. I don't care about repu- tation. Pepi can wear his hair clean to the ground. Just as long as he hits and plays ball." Just then Pepilone leisurely strolled by the bullpen bench where Durocher was observ- ing batting practice, sitting in the sun. "Move it, snapped Leo. Pepi broke into a jog. But it was a week later he really got the message. Pcpi- tone was yanked out of a game when he trotted to first base for a single which Duro- cher thought should have been a double with a little husl le. What really rankles Duro- cher is when a player lies to him- "Don't lie lo me. When someone hits a homer and my pitcher or catcher tells me it was low, away or high, I don't wwnt to find out later it was right down the pipe. That really burns me. up. Dammit, don't lie to me because I want to know what to do the next time." Durocher is known as a hunch manager but his hunch manoeuvres are far less than his reputation. He goes with the book as far as he can or wants to. But when he runs out of the "right guy n! the right Leo resorts to hunches. Then Durocher slraiphlcns out the chair and says: "Game time. Sec you later." It was game time for Leo Durocher for about the time as player, coach and manager. HOUSTON (AP) Muham- mad AU surprised even himself with glimpses of the past Mon- day night but his sights are on the future today and the future is Joe Frazicr. "I'm still in training right Ali said. "I'll be fighting again in six he added, only minutes after he battered Jimmy Ellis helplessly into the j-opes for a technical knockout in the 12th round of their heavy- weight 12-round bout in the As- trodome. "I can't let up Ali said. "I'll be running four miles again tomorrow." Ali certainly proved he was ready for phase two of his plan for a rematch with heavyweight champion Frazier. He wanted three fights before the rematch, and he danced a step closer in defeating Ellis, He also made a believer of Ellis, Ali's former sparring partner and a former World Boxing Association champion. Ellis said AU was faster now than when he lost the heavy- weight title t-j Frazier March 8. "The man is an Ellis said. "He takes care of himself. "All he needs is work. You can't loss years and have an easy time coming back." Before a live audience of 31.947 and almost a million more in closed circuit television in the United States, Toronto, Montreal, Halifax and Winni- peg, AU danced the famed Ali shuffle t h r o u g hout the 12 rounds. "I can't explain the foot- Ali said. "I was feeling strong at the end of the fight." Ali also said he wasn't both- ered by his weight of 22014 for l-he fight, the heaviest of lu's career. "It might have slowed me down a little, but in the long run it didn't hurt AU said. AU said his different approach in fighting EUis and Frazier was a matter of mental prepa- ration. PLANNED TO DANCE "I d i d n 't plan to dance against Ali said. "But tonight, I was thinking about dancing." A barrage of lefts and rights by Ali in the final round sent Ellis reeling around the ring, al- most going down twice. Ellis was helpless on the ropes when referee Jay Edson stopped the fight at of the 12th round. Ai stood over Ellis several seconds before Edson stopped it, with Ellis dangling. "He could have been critically Ali said. "I knew they'd stop the fight when a man is that helpless, T couldn't take a chance on hurting hirr for life. "I can see in a man's eyes wrhen he is Ali said. "He's got a wife and kids. All it would have taken was just three more times, bam bam Ali said. HUNG ON Ali also sent Ellis reeling in the fourth and 10th rounds but each time Ellis managed to get through the rounds. AU speared Ellis repeatedly with wicked left jabs and put on his best boxing and dancing ex- hibition since he returned to the ring after a S'.i-year layoff be- cause of a draft-evasion convic- tion. The conviction was over- turned by the U.S. Supreme Court June 28. Edson and both judges had Ali ahead after 11 rounds. Edson scored it 110-93. Judge Earl Keel liad it and Ernie Taylor scored it 107-104. Edson said lie stopped tile fight because "his eyes were bleary. 'Thors was no question in my mind be was hurt. Angclo Dim-dee was ready to come into the ring." All said lie didn't play Ellis like he did in the fight against Frazicr. "I was feeling him Ali said of the first three rounds. "He's in the best shape of his life 1 had to wait until lie ran out of energy." It was All's 32nd victory and 26th knockout of his career. Ho was guaranteed or cent of all income, including closed-circuit television. Ellis lost for the seventh lime in 27 pro fights and for the second time as heavyweight. He received a 20-per-cent guarantee of all income. Ali would not say who IBS next fight will be against but possibilities mentioned Quarry, his first victim after returning from his 3V4-year exile, European heavyweight champion Joe Bugner, with whom Ali sparred two rounds in preparation for the fight with Ellis, or Canadian champion George Chuvalo who went 15 rounds with Ah' several years ago. Pappus sharp against Karl captures in omul victory i The'City of Lctbbridge blank- i cd Simpson Sears 5-0 behind Joe Karl's pitching in Business- men's Faslball League action .Monday night. Blaine Spackman suffered the loss. Joe Schnitzer and Wayne Gregory paced Ihe City's at- tack with two and three hits respectively. It might hurt but it works By THE ASSOCIATED PRESS Every time Bob Gibson throws a baseball, it hurts him. And when he's working against New York, it hurls the Mels even more. Gibson limited the Mots to five hits Monday night, pitching St. Louis Cardinals lo a 4-0 vic- tory for his second straight Na- li'inal Leagu-1. shutout and the 47ili of his career. In Monday night's only oilier league action. Chicago Cubs dropped Montreal Expos 5-2, Houston Astros topped Philadel- phia Phillies 7-4 in 15 innings and, in the lone American League game, Minesota Twins nipped Boston Red Sox 2-1. Gibson's victory was Ihe 25lh of his career againsl the Mets. But few pitchers work with as much pain as the flame-throw- ing right-hander who is now just two away from 200 career wins. "It's painful, but not painful enough to keep me from pitch- Gibson said of the dam- aged muscle in his right, thigh which kept him on the disabled list for three weeks earlier this season. "There's always some dis- Gibson continued, "whether it's in the arm or the leg. "My arm's very tired." RECORD UNIMPRESSIVE Gibson's shutout moved his record for Ihe season to a still unimpressive 8-9. Gibson knew this wasn't one of his years when the Mets beat him the first two times they met this season. But Monday's shutout increased his career log to 21-9 against New York. Joe Torre made Gibson's task easy, drilling three hits to run his current hot streak to 12 in his last 18 trips to the plate. Torre, Ihe National League's leading batter, drove in two runs in the first inning and then Gibson tripled and scored o n Lou Brock's bunt single in the second. M a 11 y Alou's ninlh-inning homer accounted for Ihe Cardi- nal's other run. Gibson's shutout kept the Car- dinals lied with Chicago for sec- ond place in the National League East. The Cubs used Milt Pappas' five-hit pitching to beat Montreal. Jim Hickman led Chicago's attack with three hits, driving in two runs and scoring another. The Cubs were trailing 2-1 until the sixth when they bunched five hits for three runs against loser Steve Renko, 9-11. Pappas, 11-9, surrendered sin- gle runs in 'the second and lliird innings bul was in control after that. Cesar Ccdeno, who had key doubles in two earlier Houston rallies, touched off the winning tliree-run spurt in the 15th in- ning with a single as the Astros whipped Plu'Iadelphia. Cedeno raced to third on an error and then scored on Doug Rader's third hit, a double. After Denis Menke walked, Jesus Alou doubled two more runs home. Willie Montanez had two ho- mers for Ihe Phillies, who led 2-1 until Ccdcno's first double tied the score in the eighth. Jim Kaat outlasted Sonny Sic- bert in a pitcher's duel and Min- nesota nipped Boslon on Jim Holl's sacrifice fly in the ninth ining. The Twins had tied lire score against Siebert on George Mit- terwald's seventh-inning homer afler Ihe Boston ace had limited Ihem to three hits over the first six innings. Rich Reese opened the ninth wiih a triple when his low drive got past Reggie Smith in right field. After Siebert loaded Ihe bases with a pair of intentional walks, he got Mitterwald on a short fly but then Holt delivered the winner. Smith had three hits, drove in Boston's run and also turned in some outstanding defensive plays in right field until the ninth. Race results EDMONTON (CP) Race results rom Northlands Park Monday.
