Winning Record Not Necessary Five Teams Still Have A Chance By THE ASSOCIATED PRESS Tha National League East Is qraetly turning into a five-Learn race and two of the baseball dubs have lost more games than they have, won. With the division leading Pittsburgh Pirates in the throes ol i six-game losing streak, the revitalized St. Louis Cardinals, despite a 64-68 record, have crept within 514 games of thej top. But most stunning is the rise at Philadelphia Phillies, a team picked by many to finish last, which stands only 714 games be- hind with B 63-70 mark. Even sixth place Montreal is only 12'A games back with a 57- 75 record. "I can't remember when we've had a train under .500 in a pennant said Joe Rci- chler, top aide to commissioner Bowio Kuhn, a noted baseball historian. Lions Crush Philadelphia DETROIT (AP) Greg Lan- dry fired two long touchdown passes and scored himself on a 33-yard run as Detroit Lions crushed Philadelphia Eagles 31-7 Monday night in a National Football League exhibition game which featured a brief free-for-all in the final quarter. There were several minor icuffles throughout the game but early in the fourth quarter, Detroit's Lem Barney in- tercepted a pass, deep in Phila- delphia territory, a fist-fight broke out between Bobby Wil- liams of the Lions and the Ea- gles' Ernie Galloway. Both benches cleared and other play- ers began throwing punches be- iore the excitement subsided. Sulky Driver Seriously Hurt EDMONTON (CP) Don Monkman, a 46-year-old driver from Delta, B.C., suffered a broken shoulder and cracked ,1'ibs when his horse stumbled j during the third race at North- lands Park Monday niyht. Monkman was driving Kala- mea Leola into the home stretch when she fell and was hit from behind by two other horses. The driver was buried under the piled up horses and sulkies, said a spokesman for the Ed- monton Exhibition Association. AH three sulkies were wrecked but the other two drivers, Don Tracey of Weyburn, Sask., and Ed Stewart, also of Delta, were not seriously injured. Kalamea Leola and Die oth- er horses, Belle Gay Shirley and Leavitt Lenm'c, received minor injuries, said the spokes- man. It was the first serious accl- dent since the meeting began ing Craigmyle by a head In the ninth. Spruce Needles and Fargo Richard combined in the first for a ?12 quinella while Armbro Incense and Mack Setter paid in the fourth-race quinelia.

Ashe, the mainstay of the U.S'. squad for the last seven years, thrilled a crowd of with his determination. He bnrised an inflamed callus on his left heel in the ninth game of the second set chasing "We've had five teams in a race before-last year there was Atlanta, San Francisco, Cincin- nati, Los Angeles and Houston in the same division-but all of them were over .500." Pittsburgh'5 slump has dropped the Pirates to 70-63, a .526 percentage, which would be the lowest ever to win a major league pennant should the Pir- ates go on to win their division and then heat the West winner for the league flag The record low is .564 by Los Angeles in 1953 when the Dodg- ers were 88-68. METS SLIDE The other teams in Hie East race are Clu'cago Cubs, who have won three in a row to take second place, one game behind, and New York Mets, who fell to third, two games out, after los- ing six of seven. The Cardinals, although play- ing without injured slugger Ri- chie Allen have, won four straight and seven of nine to get back in the race after trailing by as many as 13 games late in June. The PMUies, games out last Wednesday, have risen be- hind a four-game winning streak and seven victories in eight games. Cincinnati is running away with the West Division, holding an IHz game lead over Los An- geles. The Reds boast an 86-49 record, a .637 percentage, while even the second place Dodgers have a better standard than the Pirates with a 72-58, .554 mark.

Skiers Given Start TORONTO (CP) Canada's national alpine ski team is get- ling a head start on its training prop-am Ihis year, thanks to a tour financed by the ski indus- try. Ed Creed, chairman of the Canadian Amateur Ski Associa- tion's alpine program, said Monday a team of 25 skiers will leave Sept. 22 for a training tour in Europe and return just before Christmas. About of the lour cost will come from manu- facturers of skio, ski boots and ether related equipment and supplies, Creed said. The alpine chairman said he doesn't expect any opposition to the plan from Avery Brundage, president of the international Olympic Committee, who tends to brand as professional any skier who accepts money from equipment manufacturers. "Our racers will not be sup- ported individually by the indus- said Creed. "The indus- tries will be supporting them on this tour, but through our Cana- dian Amateur Ski Association. A BENEFIT "We are taking this money and using it for ths benefit of the whole team rather lhan for any one individual member." Creed said in an interview the is coming from a group of about 25 equipment and sports supplies manufacturers, "For the right to say they are Ihe official suppliers of the Ca- nadian national ski team, they psy us a licensing fee." other for the Euro- pean tour will come from the skiers' local supporters, Creed said. Leading the team of cighl girls on Hie tour starting in Sep- tember are Betsy Clifford of Ot- tawa, Judy Crawford of Tc- ronlo, Diane Culver of Montreal and Laurie Kreiner of Timnuns, Ont. Among the 17 boys are vet- erans Mike Culver of Montreal, Peter Duncan of Mont Trem- blant, Que., Keith Shepherd ol Nelson, B.C., and Jim Hunter of Calgary. NEED 3TAY "The reason we need early start is that skiing is be- coming almost an all-year pro- said Creed. "W e have to do this if we're going to keep up with the Europeans. have one of the besl women's teams in the world with Betsy Clifford, Judy Craw- ford and Laurie Kreiner. "But unless we can maintain [heir training, there's no way can keep up. We'll just start gcing backwards." Creed said the budget year for the national alpine team is about roughly half what it was last year, which makes Ihe money from the industries that much more welcome. While the lalcnlcd young Met pitching arms continued to serve up hils of all kinds to the opposition, Ihe once punchless Met hats are taking up some of the slack. "It's encouraging that we're getting the said mana- ger Gil Hodges, "because we're not pitching well. "Clcnclcnim's done well at the plate, Agee's doing well and Jones has been swinging Ihe bat a lot better the last week. It's good to get back on the winning track. Holy cow, it's been a long dry spell." Says: Golf's Million Dollar Winner ARCH LEFT WRIST You can never obtain maximum power by using your hands and wrists too much atimpact.However, this doesn't keep many club golfers from trying. The result is that they "flick" the clubhead at the ball, allowing (he left wrist to collapse and the right hand to take over. Make it a point to more or less ignore your hands and wrists at im- pact. Let the natural im- petus of your downswing provide the. power with- out an over action of the hands. The best players will have Ihe left wrist arched slightly toward the target at impact, a sure si1- that the left side is (fl- in control. Practice this until it becomes natural. Your power will certainly increase. The dry spell covered six losses in seven games, and even though the Mels dropped from second place to third they gained ground on the Pirates, who lost six in a row. Mels starter Jerry Koosman, sailing along for five innings, yielded a three-run homer to Joe Torre in the sixth, followed by Jose Cardenal's single and another home run by Ted Sim- mons, and the lead was a shaky (j-5. But the Mets wrapped it up with five runs over the final three frames. SETS RECOIiD Vic Davalillo of the Cards drilled a pilch single in tho ninth and set an NL record o[ pinch hits in a season, one short of Ihe major league mark. The Orioles disposed of Ilia Yankees quickly, scoring four runs in the first inning. Mike Cuellar breezed to his 21st vic- tory, aided by Brooks Robin- son's two-run homer and RBI single. Ray Gulp drove in Ihe tie- breaking run for the Red Sox with a sixlh-iiming single and posted his 14th victory, although he needed help in the ninth from Gary Wagner and Sparky Lyle. "Tony Conigliaro homered for the Red Sox, who climbed within one-half game of the Ti- gers in the AL East. Frank Howard's 38th home run with a man on capped a four-run fifth inning that carried the Senators past Hie Indians.
