From Wire Service Reports
KANSAS CITY - Cleveland
Indians' pitching ace Gaylord
Perry pitched, fielded, and hit
his way to his 16th victory last
night, defeating the Kansas City
Royals, 6-1.
Perry, who is now tied with
Detroit's Mickey Lolich for the
major league lead in victories
raised his record to 16-7 and
matched his win total of last
season by scattering seven sin-
gles against the hard-hitting
Royals.
In making his 16th route-going
performance Perry Also tied

Lolich for the major league lead-
ership in that category and low-
ered his league's best earned
run average to 1.71.,
Cleveland broke loose against
the R o y a l s' 'Dynamic' Dick
Drago with four runs in the sec-
ond and added two more in the
ninth. Perry figured with key
hits in both of those rallies.
After singles by Graig Nettles
and Chris Chambliss started the
Tribe's second, John Lowenstein
advanced the runners to second
and third with a successful sac-
rifice and Nettles scored and
Lowenstein was safe when Dra-
go threw wildly to third.

Of a fighting con ...
... Eagleton and Al
By DAN BORtUS
THURSDAY, JULY 13, in the pallor of Miami Beach, a
woman from South Carolina took the microphone to announce
the vote of her state towards the Democratic nominee for
Vice President of the United States. As she received the okay
from the chair, she gave a spiel about her state. Not one of
those South Carolina the home of corporations, charisma and
character speechs, not one of those South Carolina, the state
that steadfastly supports bedbugs or whatever states do these
days when they are not in debt.
No, this woman, part of the original delegation, had a
simpler plea. South Carolina, the nation was told was the state
that wanted to send Bobby Hunter to the Olympics.
Bobby Hunter has spent the last decade behind an elabo-
rate subtrefuge. Merely 5-6, one would wonder why South
Carolina would want to send him to the Olympics, instead of
boycotting lettuce.
Bobby Hunter is, as most newspapers will tell you, a
convict. Sentenced to jail, Hunter found a new lease on life
when he donned a pair of boxing mitts. In a week which
has seen prison uprisings in both the Maryland and Attica
State prisons for the second time. each, Bobby Hunter's
desire for rehabilitation seems rare.
Hunter, making the most out of an awful situation, has
managed to earn the respect of most of the people of South
Carolina, people incidentally who locked Bobby Hunter away
for their own protection.
But that is not the main topic of this column. Rather the
official reaction to the drive to allow Hunter to play in Munich.
Sparked by a Sports Illustrated story and a CBS newscast, the
drive to allow Hunter to participate reached Movement pro-
portions.
Did the U.S. Olympic officials, realizing the sacrifices
Hunter has made by training allow his participation? Did
those men who puffed on the stoogies while others were spend-
ing their energies send out any sort of compassion for a man
who has demonstrated his desire for rehabilitation? Did any
sort of acknowledgement come from high up for a minor
miracle. Was there any recognition that the friendship between
Hunter and his white guard-trainer was one of depth and rare
in these times of racial strife.
Come, come, dear friend. Reform and good will was
confined to the new Democratic party and not any existing
institution.
Olympic official Willi Daume responded by maintaining
that Olympic athletes should be an inspiration to youth and
Mr. Hunter, alas, did not qualify.
What I like about this country is its inate ability to always
rise to the bottom of things. Speaking as an ex-youth, I can
say that Bobby Hunter's participation in the Olympic games is
about as corrupting as wine with dinner.
With the addition of Senator Eagleton to the Democratic
ticket, Sen. McGovern has balanced himself with baseball
fans. Eagleton, exercising the height of patience, was a
St. Louis Browns fan, which as everybody knows demands
the highest of patience.
Having once had his emotions subjected to the owner's
whims, speculation was great that the Missouri lawmaker
would be most severe with American League president Joe
Cronin over the Senators' exit from the capital city when
Cronin testified before a Senate committee. Not so. Cronin was
an idol of Eagleton and Eagleton related the time that he
caught three fouls off the bat of the former shortstop.
Cronin claims not to remember the incident.
Although beaten by Joe Frazier last year, Muhammed Ali
retains a good deal of skill and even more respect. Ali is con-
stantly aware that boxing can be overly brutal.
Unlike Smokin' Joe who seems to have an insatiable
need to maim his opponents, Ali exerts himself just enough
to win and refrains from doing unnecessary dbmage to an
opponent.
A case in point was Ali's romp over Jerry Quarry. Qurry,
fearful of injury to his eyes was hopelessly outclassed but Ali
with a wink to sportswriters did nothing to maim or cripple
his adversary.

A sacrifice fly by Ray Fosse

Perry also was his own field-
ing star as he handled eight

and speared a vicious line drive
by league-hitting hitter Richie
Scheinblum in the eighth which
he proceeded to turn into a dou-
ble-play.

Duffy and Perry again came
through, this time each with a
bases loaded single.
