Jane gave a wry smile when asked if she thought any jeal- ousy among golfers prompted the inquiry and suspension of the girl who was rookie of the year in 1970, most improved By THE ASSOCIATED PRESS Everybody knows about Bad Henry's relentless pursuit of the Babe's big now, all of a sudden, it seems he's.shoot- Ing for another target as well. Bad Henry, of course, is Hank Aaron of Atlanta, who today is only 61 home runs short of Babe Ruth's all-time major league record of 714. He got his 653rd career blasi Wednesday night against San Diego and, for two reasons, it couldn't have come at a better time. The more obvious one is that it won the game. It was a two- run, tie-breaking clout in the ninth inning that gave the Braves a 4-2 triumph in the opener of their twi-night dou> Die-header. But Ire couldn't equal his heroics in the nightcap and the Padres won that on 4-2, ending their latest tailspin at five games. In other National League games.

Cuellar gave the Yankees fits with lus slow curve and screw- ball. said Parr. "I made my debut here, and they wanted to see me in "t was in trouble but my mates bailed me out." Parr ran his league record to 2-1 as Rich Dawson stroked a triple and a single. Lyle Mot- fat and Phil Kelber added dou- bles to the cause. Rob Roy managed to get to winner Parr for two singles. Ferchuk, who has a 3-1 rec- ord in the league, looked like a starter after reliever DeRecat. Ferchuk had a chance to get lumself a few runs in the sixth inning, with a little help from liis mates. With one out and the bases loaded Parr threw the third strike past Marty Max- well and Hoy. The Calgary left- hander, from the University of Washington, had an easy time of it from then on in.
