NEW YORK -Tom Seaver
fired a five-hitter and Don Clen-
denon and Art Shamsky clouted
home runs last night as the ram-
paging New York Mets climbed to
within one-half game of f i r s t
place in the National League's
East Division with a 7-1 victory
over the sagging Chicago Cubs.
It was the sixth straight loss
for the front-running Cubs, their
longest losing streak of the season,
and the fifth victory in the last
six starts for the Mets. who have
charged into the pennant picture
after trailing Chicago by 9'
games on Aug. 13. Since then, New
York has spun off 20 victories in
26 games while the Cubs have
gone 11-15.
Seaver, who won his 21st game,
was in complete command as the
Mets scored early and often
against Ferguson Jenkins, C h i-
cago's ace righthander. Jenkins
was a last-minute choice by Man-
ager Leo Durocher, subbing for
scheduled starter Ken Holtzman,
a left-hander.
The late switch didn't b o t h e r
the Mets. They tagged Jenkins for
two quick runs in the first inning
on Ken Boswell's double follow-
ing walks to Tommie Agee and
Cleon Jones.
Two innings later. the M e t s
made it 4-0 on Clendenon's 13th
homer with Shamsky on base.
Shamsky had forced Jones and
then was trapped off first. But
Chicago second baseman Glenn
Beckert dropped a throw and
Shamsky reached second.
Seaver retired the first 10 Cubs
in order before Beckert doub-
led in the fourth and rode home on
lion Santo's single. Willie Smith
followed with a single, but Seaver
got Jim Hickman on a fly ball,
ending the inning.
Seaver doubled and came home
on an infield out and a sacrifice
fly in the Mets fifth, then Sham-

sky hit his 13th homer an inning
There was carnival atmosphere
in the crowd of 51,448. As t h e
Mets built up their lead, fans
down the left field line set fire to
a Cubs' pennant. Moments later,
the crowd exploded in song, ser-
enading the Cubs' dugout with the
refrain "Goodbye Leo, goodbye
Leo. goodbye Leo, we're glad to
see you go.

CINCINNATI - Willie McCov-
ey s two-run homer in the seventh
inning snapped a tie and triggered
San Francisco to a 7-4 victory over
Cincinnati last night that pushed
the Giants back into first place in
the National League West by one-
half game over the Reds.
The Reds had slipped past the
Giants by winning a doubleheader
Monday night.
Willie Mays opened the decisive
seventh with a single off Jim
Merritt, 16-7, and McCovey fol-'

the season. The Giants wrapped
it up with four runs in the eight

Last year's dramatic tie game
between Harvard and Yale ended
an extremely interesting season
in the usually drab Ivy League.
This year, though, such talented
players as Yale's Brian Dowling
and Calvin Hill, Harvard's Vic
Gatto and Pete Hall and Colum-
bia's Marty Domres have gradu-
ated and taken with them the
luster of Ivy football.
The graduation of top players
from all teams, in fact, has left
the conference picture murky and
no team can be considered a heavy
favorite to take the championship.
Of the contenders. Pennsyl-
vania, must be considered the
strongest since most of last year's
surprising squad is returning.
Their forte is their passing game
- spear-headed by quarterback
Bernie Zbrzeznj who threw for
1.278 yards last year.
Definitely. Coach Robert Odell
has a nucleus of experienced play-
ers to build on. including All-Ivy
tackles Mike Chwastyk and Jim
The absence of established de-
fensive backs, however, make the
Quakers only cautious favorites.
Harvard remains in contention
because several outstanding play-
ers, led by big tight eild Pete Var-

ney, are returning to the offensive,
platoon. Varney became the hero,
of last year's Yale game when he
grabbed a pass from quarterback
Frank Champi to secure a tie in
the closing seconds. Champi also'
returns, along with speedy half-
back Ray Hornblower, end Bruce
Freeman and tackles Fritz Reed
and Bob Dowd.

backer should provide enough
backbone for the defense so that
the offense can stay within reach
of most opponents.
Princeton's new coach, Jake
McCandless, will expend most of
his efforts reorganizing the old
fashioned single wing offense that
has been a tradition at Princeton
ever since football began there.

Meanwhile he must rely on an ex-
perienced defensive platoon to
hold off the opposition.
Dartmouth, which was plagued
by injuries last season, is expected
to be on the rebound. Standouts
on Coach Bob Blackman's defen-
sively minded squad include mid-
dle guard Larry Killgallon and
defensive end Ernie Babcock.
Yale's fine 1968 squad has been
ravaged by graduation. Nine start-
ers are going on defense and five
on offense. Most sorely missed

Bi'ian Dowling wxho was drafted
by the Minesota Vikings. Coach
Carmen Cozza says. "I don't see
how we can be picked to finish in

Brown's Coach Len Jardine is
counting on sophomores to pull
the team through. It seems un-
likely that the Bruins will improve
much over last year's 2-7 record.
Cornell's Coach, Jack Musick
plans a big shakeup among veter-
an personnel. Unless things settle
quickly, the Big Reds may not get
off the ground this year.
Finally. Columbia's Marty Dom-
res has graduated and left Colum-
bia in a very weak position. Since
they have no running game they
must rely on the passing of sopho-
more quarterbacks to improve on
last year's 2-7 record.

LISBON iP-The president of
the Union of Portuguese Bull-
fighters resigned yesterday in pro-
test against the permission grant-
ed to an American lady bullfighter
to appear in a corrida here.
Manuel Conde, one of the coun-
try's most famous bullfighters,
said he had nothing personal
against Miss Edith Evans, a 25-

year-old horse bullfighter from
San Antonio, Tex.
"I simply resent her invasion
in a domain which traditionally
was reserved to men, he said.
Conde explained he quit from
his position because the union
granted Miss Evans equal rights
to Portuguese professional fight-
ers despite his opposition.

One of the major arguments in
favor of installing Tartan Turi at
Michigan Stadium and in Ferry
Field was that it would result in
a reduction of injuries. particularly
to the knee.
Michigan has mistalled Tartan
Turf. but instead of less injuries
there have been more disabilities.
Lindsay McLean. the Wolverines
head trainer, contacted yesterday
refused to put the blame on the
new turf. "It's probably just been
a case of bad luck: for example,
the injury to Phil Seymour (All-
Big Ten defensive end ib 1968
could have occurr'ted on a basket-
ball courlt or ani ice rin~k.
In addition to Seymour others
on the injured list include soph-
omore tailback Bill Taylor, who
will be out for a couple weeks.
senior center Pete Sarantos. who
has a nerve injury in the lower
leg. and quarterback Jim Betts and
tailback Glenn Doughty, both of
whom will be back in a couple of
days x
McLean did say that he was not
convinced the Tartan Turf will
reduce injuries. The Wolverine
trainer added there have been re-
ports that artifical turf will reduce
injuries but said there is not

enough evidence to establish the
Generally the theory behind the
reduction in knee disabilities goes
like this: the more grab the more
pressure, the more joint injuries'
in the lower extremities: therefore
if there is less traction on arti-
ficial turf, there will be less knee
The theory h a s been compli-
cated by the presence of two dif-
ferent types of artifical turf. Mc-
Lean points out. "You have to
evaluate the turf. Tartan Turf is
completely different from Astro
Turf. They're even colored differ-
ently, amd there's no way of tell-
ing if one is better or worse"
McLean said that some reports
indicated that Astro T u r f had
less traction than Tartan Turf,
and if this was so, there would be
less injuries on the Astro Turf.
The Wolverine trainer also said
the Tartan Turf had produced two
other difficulties. One being that
with less traction players will be
moving facter and collisions will
te n d to occur at faster speeds
than in the past. Another trouble
spot has been the elbow where a
plethora of burns due to the turf
have appeared. McLean said that
elbow pads were being used in or-
der to cut down on the burns.

According to McLean fears
about changes in playing condi-
tions when the Turf is wet appear
to be unfounded. McLean said
there was little difference between
wet Tartan Turf and wet regular
McLean also said that shoes will
not be a problem since "any shoe
will work." The Wolverine trainer
also said that short cleats appear
to be more efficient except during
the rain when regular cleats are
Despite the fact that the Tartan
Turf may not cut down on knee
injuries, McLean is enthused about
the artificial grass. He said, "I
like the even uniform surface, it
means no sprained ankles due to
stepping in holes." McLean also
said that the fact that the turf
is just as hard in September as
in November may be an advantage,
since the players will not have to
adjust to changes in season.
