Hichey Joins Pasarell, Riessen Four Heavyweights Des
:.In Wimbledon Tennis Victories To Open Fight Over All

s Title


OIT TIGER'S AL KALINE stares at the cast on his broken
right little finger.


WIMBLEDON, England (A) -
Cliff Richey, a crewcut tiger from
Texas, demolished fourth seeded
Tony Roche of Australia yesterday
3-6, 3-6, 19-17, 14-12, 6-3, in a
four-hour marathon and joined
fellow Americans Charlie Pasarell
and Marty Riessen as the giant
killers in the Wimbledon Lawn
Tennis championships.
The three Americans, still
smarting from their country's
Davis Cup humiliation by Ecua-
dor, now have a seeded scalp each
to their collection after three days
The 20-year-old Richey shared
the battle honors as dusk began to
fall over Wimbledon's grass
courts. He lost the first two sets
against the left-handed Aussie.
It looked as though it would be
curtains for the blond Texan, but
Richey, like Pasarell and Ries-
sen before him, now had the bit
between his teeth.
He threw himself at every ball
and finally took the match after
89 games - only four short ofE
Wimbledon's record.
Wimbledon's marathon record
was set in 1953 by American
Budge Patty and Jaroslav Drabny,
the self exiled Czech now living
in Britain. That match lasted four
hours, 20 minutes and went into
93 games.
Pasarell, who knocked out de-
fending champion Manuel San-
tana of Spain, on the opening day
defeated Bob Hewitt, South Afri-
can Davis Cup star, 6-3, 6-8, 6-2,
6-4, in the second round and
Riessen knocked out seventh
seeded Jan Leschly of Denmark,
1-6, 6-3, 3-6, 6-1. 6-4.
The Richey-Roche duel that en-
thralled the late evening crowd

really got underway at 5-5 in the
third set. Each man relied on his
powerful serve and volley to keep
on top with services. Slowly the
score crept up, with Richey always
At 18-17 came the long expected
break. Roche seemed to lose his
concentration for a moment and
again netted a volley to give
Richey the set 19-17.
It was the same story in the
fourth. Roche broke Richey with
three fine passing shots to lead
7-6. But the crewcut American
just gritted his teeth and broke
back for 7-7 when the now-wor-
ried Roche began mistiming his
volleys again.
After his upset victory over the
seeded Dane, Riessen said: "It
always makes me feel good to
knock out a seeded player. I did
it two years ago when I defeated
Wilhelm Bungert of Germany,
who was then fifth seeded.
Not Make Up
"But nothing that happens here
can make up for our Davis Cup
failure against Ecuador. Clark
Graebner and I lost the doubles-
and even if I win Wimbledon it
wouldn't erase the memory of
that. I started badly against
Leschley. I lost the first five
games and thought I never would
get into the match at all."
But R i e s s e n' s determination
pulled him through. He lost the
first set in 16 minutes, then grit-
ted his teeth and took three of
the next four sets for the match.
His consistent serving, volley-
ing and speed saw him through.
He had his share of luck, includ-
ing two lets which helped him to
a vital break at the start of the
final set. Rissen had a match

DETROIT OP) - Hard-hitting
outfielder Al Kaline of the Detroit
Tigers was placed on the Ameri-
can League's disabled player list
yesterday after he smashed the
little finger of his right hand in-
a fit of temper Tuesday night
upon striking out.
The action meant that Kaline
will miss the major league All-
Star game July 11 at Anaheim,
Calif. He had led all players in
voting for the squad.
Dr. Russell Wright, Tiger phy-
sician, put a cast on the broken
finger yesterday.
NEW YORK (') -- Tony Oliva,
Minnesota's right fielder, has
been named to replace the injured
Al Kaline of Detroit in the start-
ing line-up of the American
League team for the July 11 All-
Star game at Anaheim.

the only three repeaters from the
1966 starters who defeated the
Americans 2-1 and took a 19-17-1
edge in the series. Brock is the
only lefthanded batter in the
starting line-up.
Mays finished fourth among the
outfielders with 77 votes. Under
the new system, adopted by Com-
missioner William Eckert last year,
the three outfielders polling the
most votes are the starters, re-
gardless of position.
The manager, in this case, Wal-
ter Alston of the Los Angeles Dod-
gers, assigns the positions. The
managers also pick the pitchers
and the remainder of the 25-man
Clemente with 248 votes, Aaron
with 216 and Brock with 116 all
received omre votes than Mays
who holds All-Star records for
most runs, 19, most hits 22, most
triples 3, most stolen bases 6, most
outfield putouts 47 and most long
hits 8 tied with Stan Musial.
Orlando Cepeda, continuing his
strong comeback with the St.
Louis Cardinals, overshadowed all
the first basemen and received 219
votes, to 46 for runner-up Felipe
Alou of Atlanta, who now is back
in the outfield.
Pittsburgh's amazing double
play combination of Gene Alley at
short and Bill Mazeroski at second
base made the team.
Alley won by a landslide with'
224 votes to 26 for Leo Cardenas,
Cincinnati's injured shortstop and
the 1966 starter. Mazeroski also
overshadowed the field with 218 to
25 for Julian Javier of St. Louis.
Richie Allen of the Phillies took
third base with 148 votes. Tony
Perez of Cincinnati, who started
the year at first base, came in sec-
ond with 76.
The catching was a runaway for
Torre with 187, followed by Tim
McCarver of St. Louis with 62.
Actually, the closest competion
was among the outfielders with 15
receiving votes. Mays was only 39
behind Brock.

fourth set-but the Dane got off

Leschley won that game, but
went out in the next. Riessen took
the match with the help of his
10th ace and a gentle tap that
touched the net and barely made
it across the cord.
Pasarell got his booming serv-
ice going well against Hewitt,
moved well around the court and
prvoided the crowd of 8,000

fine tennis.
World Marks
Sought By
Ron Clarke
VAESTERAAS, Sweden (p)-
Ron Clarke, Australia's durable
track star, set a world record of
8:19.8 here Tuesday night. Now
he plans to attempt to break his
world mark of 3:16.6 for the 5,000
meters at Stockholm next week.
Clarke, a lean 29-year-old Aussie
who was the first to crack the 28-
minute barrier for the 10,000
meters and the 13-minute barrier
for the three miles, was surprised
after he learned of his record
time in the two mile.
"Really?" he exulted. "It's fan-
tastic. If course I tried for a new
world record, but I did not think
I could manage it after some stom-
ach-ache earlier in the day." He
blew kisses to the crowd of 5,000
and started a triumphant jog
around the track.
Clarke's remarkable last lap of
59.8 seconds enabled him to break
the lishted world mark of 8:22.6
set by Michael Jazy of France in
1965. He finished far ahead of
Lars Bergqvist, the runnerup
timed in 8:55.59.
How about his try in the 5,000
meters next week at Stockholm?
"After Tuesday's race, I think
there is a certain possibility if con-
ditions turn out good and if I get
some peacemaking assistance the
first 2,000 meters.
Clarke now holds six world rec-
ords. In addition to the two-mile
and 5,000 meters, he holds the
three-mile at 12:50.4, the six miles
at 26:47.0, the 10,000 at 27:39.4
and the 10 miles at 47:12.8.

Volkswagen's unique construction
keeps dampness out.
For years there have been rumors about floating
Volkswagens. (The photographer claims this one
stayed up for 42 minutes.) Why not?
The bottom of the VW isn't like ordinary car
bottoms. A sheet of flat steel runs under the car,
sealing the bottom fore and aft.
That's not done to nake a bad boat out of it,
just a better car. The sealed bottom protects a VW
from water, dirt and salt. All the nasty thingson the
road that eventually eat up a car.
The top part of a Volkswagen is also very sea-
worthy. It's practically airtight. So airtight that it's
hard to close the door without rolling down the
window a bit.
But there's still one thing to keep in mind if you
own a Volkswagen. Even if it could definitely float,

I did.

"I'm Joe Bustamente. I began working in a
bakery at night. The pay was low. The hours
bad. Now I'm a tank sealer and tester in the air-
craft industry with good pay and good hours."
Things are chanzng.
