Special To The Daily
W FLUSHING, N.Y.-If you were
told any of the over 59,000 fans
that crowded Shea Stadium last
night that the Mets wouldwin
4-0 and leave the ball park dis-
appointed, they would have said
you were crazy. However, exactly
that happened.
4 The Mets 'stunned the Chicago
Cubs for the second straight
night, but New York's ace right
hander Tom Seaver stole the show
when he flirted with immortality
by retiring the , first 25 Cub
Seaver's bid for a perfect game
was spoiled when Cub rookie cen-
ter fielder Jim Qualls lined the
first ball pitched to him into left
for a single.
Qualls has not been a regular
this season, and was playing pri-
marily because Leo Durocher was
upset with the fielding of regular
Don Young. Qualls was batting
only .234 when he broke up Seav-
er's pitch for perfection.
Qualls was the only batter in
the Chicago order to come close
to a hit off Seaver. Several Cubs
managed to sock long fly balls but
the Met outfielders had plenty of
time to get under them,
Seaver was in command all thej
way, striking out ten and display-
ing pin point control. Not one Cub
batter was able to work the count
to three balls off Seaver.
The Met crowd, the largest ever
to watch a baseball game in Shea
Stadium, gave Seaver standing
ovations_ at the end of the seventh
and eighth. innings, when Seaver
came to bat in the eighth and
after Quall's base hit.
The Mets scored all the runs
they needed .when Tommy Agee
lined the first pitch from Ken
Holtzman In the first inning for a
" triple and scored two pitches later

when Bobby Pfeil lined a double .
to left.
The Mets added two more runs
in the second when Jerry Grote
and Al Weis reached base on
errors by the erratic Cub infield.
Grote scored on a single by Seaver
and Weis came home when Agee
The Mets scored their final run
in the seventh inning when Cleon
Jones lined his tenth homer into
the Chicago bullpen.
The win was Seaver's 14th of
the season against only three loss-
es. He is tied with .Atlanta's Phil
Niekro for pitching wins in the
majors this year. Holtzman is now
ten and five.,.
The win was the Mets' seventh
in a row and moved theme to
within three games of the Cubs in
the National League's Eastern Di-,
vision. New York only trails the
Cubs, who have lost five in a row,'
by one game in the all important
loss column.
Cheering Met fans, who smelled
victory from the start of the game,
were chanting "We're number>
one," as the 'cpntest drew to con-
clusion. 'f'e fans, who have filled
Shea Stadium for the last two
days, are expected to do so again
today when the Cubs and Mets
conclude their three game series.
Gary Gentry, 8-6, of the Mets
will face the Cubs' Bill Hands,
9-7, this afternoon.

other error, letting the second

throwing error of the day.

has no plans to report to the New
York Jets' football training camp
which opens this weekend on
Long Island.
"I made my ,decision and I'm
sticking with it," he told the Asso-
ciated Press. "As for Rozelle, I
don't know what's on his mind."
Commissioner' Pet Rozelle of
the National Football League has
asked Namath .to rid himself of
his jinterest in the Bachelors III
bar because known gamblers were
frequenting the establishment.
Namath refused and announced:
he was retiring from football.
The star quarterback, who led
the¢ Jets to the Super Bowl title,
was asked if he had any change
of heart about his resolve not to
sell his interest. ,
"I would change my mind if'
someone would say where I was
wrong," he 'answered. "That's all
I want-show me what's wrong.
If I have been wrong, I won't
want any part of the restaurant."
Namath said: his attorney had
coneferred with Rozelle last week
but the meeting had brought no
break in the situation. Still,
Broadway Joe indicated he wants
to return to football.

"If I was him, I would want
to see a break in the situation,"
Namath said. "But I'm not him, so
I don't know what he's going to
When it was suggested Rozelle
might not want to back down be-
cause of saving face, Namath re-
marked, ."Then that would put
more hypocrisy on the whole situ-
atioh, The. charge was thatI had
consorted with undesireables and
I say I didn't. Nobody yet has
proven to me that I did anything
When Rozelle said gamblers'
were frequenting Bachelors III, he
stressed his feeling that Namath
personally knew nothing of this.
Namath said he would regret
not reporting for the training
camp and -that he wanted to play
for the Jets more than anything.
As to his future, he said it could
"work out any of three ways" but
he wouldn't explain the alterna-

"I'm not going to talk about
my reasons," Sauer said. "I'm here
to play. That'd all."
Sauer, tight end Pete Lammons
and defensive back Jim Hudson
said at the time Namath an-
nounced his retirement they
would not play if Namath didn't.
There has been no word from
either Lammons or Hudson on
their intentions, and Namath still
is retired.
The Jets' veterans officially are
due in camp Sunday and will be-
gin workouts Monday.
The club, meanwhile, announced
the signing of fours players, in-
cluding rookie quarterback Al
Woodall, who has 13layed one year
in the minors, was the Jets' No. 2
draft choice.
Also signing were No. 9 choice
Frank Peters, a center-tackle from
Ohio University; No. 13 choice
Steve O'Neal, a punter from Texas
A&M, and veteran defensive back
Mike D'Amato.

Morrall may hang up spikes

By The Associated Press
rall, quarterback for the Balti-
more Colts and the National Foot-
ball ague's Player of the Year,
iri{19', announced a new business
venture yesterday and indicated
he might retire from football this
Morrall, who led the Colts ,to
the NFL title in 1968, said he
would discuss the possible retire-
ment with the Colts in Baltimore
this weekend,

_South Africa
fces boyCott
MUNICH, Germany '(P) - A
South African athletic team sched-
uled to participate in a Saturday
track meet here has been told it
cannot compete because of a
threatened Ethiopian boycott, the
meet organizer said yesterday.
Otto Ortner, chairman of the
Saturday event, said he had been
told by the manager of a 12-man
Ethiopian track team that it
would not compete if an eight-
person team from the University
of Potchefstroom were allowed to
It marked the second time this
week the South African university
team has been turned away from
a West German track event be-
cause of .Ethiopian protests. In
Cologne Tuesday, the South Afri-
can team -was also told it could'
not participate.
Earlier this year both Czecho-
slovakia and Poland refused to
play the -South African tennis
team in Davis Cup competition.
Both countries were suspended
from Cup competition as a result
of their action. But in spite of
penalties many nations continue
to boycott the South Africans in
all areas of sport.

"My communication with theI
will be the deciding factor," he
said. "At this point i am right or
the middle."
Morrall was made a vice presi-
dent of Trans National Communi-
cations, Inc..
Board Chairman Ellis E. Erd-
man said, "I will make no secret
of the fact that I would like Ear]
Morrall to retire. Our position 'is
we want him with us full time. We
are now, waiting with baited
breath until he talks with the
Colts and makes his decision."
Jim Walker, public relations
director of the Celts, said if Mor-
rall did retire "it would be a com-
plete£ surprise to us."
"Earl told us earlier he was go-
ing with Trans National," Walker
said, "but during the off-season
with some kind of agency in De-
tiroit. He said then when he re-
tired, he would join them full
If Morrall were to leave football,
it would strip the game of its two
outstanding quarterbacks I a s t
year. Earlier, Joe Namath of the
New York Jets said he would re-
tire rather than sell his interest
in a New Yprk night club.
Also, Don Meredith, quarterback
of the Dallas Cowboys, has an-
nounced his'retirement.
After bouncing around in the
NFL for 12 years, Morrall sud-
denly became a star last year and
led the league in passing and the
Colts to the Super Bowl, where
they were upset by Namath and
the American Football League
champion Jets.
"Football has been an impor-
tant portion of my life," said Mor-
rall. "I played it for 13 years.
This is something I'll have to talk
over 'with Coach. Don Shula, the
Colts and my 'family."
Morrall was named to head
TNC's operations in Detroit. He
will also. be president of Earl Mor-
rall Associates, a TNC subsidiary.

Erdman said that if Morrall
were to remain with the Colts,
both jobs still would be his.
Asked if he might stay with the
Colts, Morrall said,. "If they really
need me and want me back, I
'think this is the direction I would
go. My communication with them
will be the deciding factor."
;he Colts' training camp opens
Sunday and Morrall, despite his
big season last year could find
himself in the position having to
finht for his job. John Unitas, the
Colts' quarterback for many years,
was injured much of last season,
but Morrall said Unitas has been
throwing well this summer.
"Every year I've played foot-
ball," said Morrallwho once
played with the San Francisco
49ers, the Detroit Lions andthe.
New York Giants as well as the
Colts,' "I've had, to fight for the
job. If I go back in the camp the
No. 1 job is up for grabs again."
Morrall said he was flying to
Detroit last night to begin setting
up his TNC office and would go to
Baltimore to talk with Colts own-
er Carroll Rosenblum and Shula.
TNC vice presidents include
Whitey Ford, former New York
Yankee pitcher and former New
York Giant footballers Dick Lynch
and Pat Summerall. TNC is the
owner of-the Oakland Seals of the
National Hockey League and sev-
eral other enterprises.
