HOLTZMAN HOLDS REDS HITLESS
Ken Holtzman wraps his magic left arm around Danny Breeden (19)
as he is surrounded by joyous teammates after hurling a no-hitter,
making things difficult for photographers trying to snap Holtzman.

No fair calling us up on the telephone. Also, you must give your correct

What pitcher won 20 games with the highest earned run average

CINCINNATI - Left-hander.
Ken Holtzman of the Chicago
Cubs pitched the first no-hitter
of the 1971 baseball season last
night beating the Cincinnati
Hltzman, who pitched a no-
hitter for the Cubs two years
ago against the Atlanta Braves,
overcame periods of wildness for
his classic, and stifled the Reds,
mostly on ground balls.
Holtzman struck out six, walk-
ed four and kept Cincinnati's
fearsome Big Red Machine
pounding the ball to Cubs' in-
fielders as he weaved his way
out of jams caused by control
In order to nail down his no-
hitter in the ninth, Holtzman
had to face the top of the Reds'
powerful batting order.
Hal McRae made the first out,
flying out to John Callison on a
1-0 pitch. Then Tommy Helms
struck out on a 1-2 pitch after
fouling off one ball.
That brought up slugger Lee
May who ran the count to two
balls and two strikes before
striking out to end the game.
Holtzman scored the game's
only run in the third inning
when he led off and reached oi
Tony Perez' throwing error. The
pitcher moved up on Don Kes-
singer's infield out and then
scored on Glenn Beckert's line
single to right center.
Holtzman got into his tough-
est jam in the bottom of the
third when he walked Buddy
Bradford leading off. Bradford
moved up on a wild pitch and
then went to third as Dave Con-
ception grounded out.
That brought up pitcher Gary
Nolan, who bounced in front of
the plate. Catcher Danny Bree-
dan pounced on the ball and
tagged Nolan for the out, Brad-
ford remaining at third.
Holtzman then got McRae to
fly to center, stranding the run-
In the sixth, McRae walked
with one out and stole second.
But Helms lined out and May
bounced out. Then Holtzman
took control, retiring the Reds
in order over the last three in-
nings and retiring the last 11
men in order.
Red Sox stop Yanks
NEW YORK - Pitcher Ray
Culpa run-scoring single with
two out in the ninth inning last
night carried the Boston Red
Sox to a 3-2 victory over the
New York Yankees that snap-
ped their losing streak at five
Culp's single scored Duane
Josephson, who had doubled, to
give the Red Sox a 3-1 lead and
they withstood a New York rally
in the bottom of the ninth for a
one-half game lead over idle
Baltimore in the American
Josephson cracked a leadoff
single off Mel Stottlemyre in tne
eighth, moved around to third
on a sacrifice bunt and wild
pitch and scored the tie-break-
ing run two-out on a single by
slump-ridden Carl Yastrzemski.

PITTSBURGH - Steve Carl-

WHAT'S IN A NAME:
Is it Big Lew or Big Kareem?
WASHINGTON (R) - Lew Al-
cindor, most valuable player in
the National Basketball Asso-
ciation, made it clear yesterday
that from now on he wants peo-
ple to call him Kareem Abdul
Jabbar, the Islamic name he
chose nearly three years ago.
The champion Milwaukee
Bucks' star made his declara-
tion at a news conference and
picture taking session during
which it was confirmed that Al-
cindor, his teammate, Oscar
Robertson, and Coach Larry
Costello, would take a 25-day
trip through Africa for the State
"I've been kind of quiet about
it uip to now," he said. -"Now
that I'm representing this coun-
try, I want to do it. When I'm
speaking to people and holding
news conferences, I want to use
my islamic name."
Alcindor said he didn't expect
the Bucks to change his name in
the prograom or their .advertising
"because I've become famous
with it. I do expect people to use
my Islamic name when they're
talking to me."
He repeatedly corrected news-
men who called him either
"Lew" or "Mr. Alcindor" in or-
der to ask a question. His reply
was "Kareem" or "Jabbar"
Alcindor said he made the
name change in the summer of
1968 when he converted from
Roman Catholicism to Islamic
and made it public in a two-part
series in Sports Illustrated in
The 7-foot-3 standout said Ka-
reem translates to "noble or
generous," Abdul is "servant of
allah," and Jabbar, "Powerful."
Alcindor said his bride of a
week, the former Janice Brown
of Los Angeles but now known
as "Habiba," would make the
tour with him through Algeria,
Senegal, Mai, Nigeria, Tanzania
He said he was married in
Washington last Friday but did
not know where he and his wife
would make their home when the
State Department tour ends.
When he was asked where he
was married, since there was-no
license issued to him in the Dis-
trict of Columbia or its surround-
ing suburbs, he replied that he
did not need a license. .
"If I had been married as a
Christian or a Jew I would need
one, but I was married in a pri-
vate home under Islamic law."
Alcindor said he was not a
black Muslim as is former heav-
yweight champion Cassius Clay,
but a Sunni Orthodox "like the.
religion practiced in Pakistan."
During the State Department
tpur, the three Bucks will con-
duct coaching clinics, give exhi-
bitions on how to shoot the ball
and meet with the- players of
each of the six countries.
