Tigers, Yankees split

seek to aid Namath

By The Associated Press
Star Minnesota quarterback
Joe Kapp has decided not to
return to the Minnesota Vikings
this fall, his attorney said yes-
terday.
The attorney, John Elliott
Cook of San Francisco, was
quoted by writer Ed Schoen-
feld of the Oakland Tribune as
saying Kapp "is now finished as
a Viking." The writer said he
did not contact Kapp. who has
b ken unheard from for t w o
we Mks.
"It is hoped," Cook was quot-
ed as saying, "his football fu-
ture will be with a club that
shared his dedication. Joe has
placed his matters in my hands,
and I assume complete respon-

sibility for his decisions," Cook
said.
Kapp, 32, who led the Vikings
to the National Football League
title last year, became a free
agent May 1, when his three-
year contract expired.
The Vikings have given him
an ultimatum to report to camp
or forget about playing for the
Vikings.
"I'm not talking to anyone,"
Joe Namath, the AWOL New
York Jets quarterback, said late
yesterday as he wheeled away
from his posh East Side apart-
ment in a chauffeur-driven
limousine.
Broadway Joe, accompanied
by Mike Bite, his lawyer, and
another man, was apparently

headed for a secret rendevous
with Phil Iselin, president of, the
Jets, who had earlier told the
other members of - his team:
"Don't be too quick to con-
demn - give a man a chance."
Iselin's reference obviously
was to Namath although he.was
not mentioned by name. Iselin
made the comment to the play-
ers at the Jets' Hempstead,
N.Y., training camp.
Iselin's speech, while n o t
mentioning Namath by name,
touched all bases - the quarter-
back's absense from camp be-
cause of "problems which are
dwarfing my mental state" and
the public criticism of Namath
by linebacker Al Atkinson.

The Detroit T i g e r s stayed
even with Baltimore last night,
a rare occurence, but not a very
useful one. The Tigers split a
doubleheader with second place
New York last. night while
Baltimore was splitting with
Cleveland, so they are still ten
games out.
Mike Kilkenny hurled a four-
hitter and Mickey Stanley pro-
vided the muscle as the Tigers
won the opener, 2-1, but a
three-run homer by Roy White
and a two-run shot by Bobby
Murcer wiped out early Detroit
leads as the Yankees won the
nightcap, 7-5.
Murcer's homer was a real
bummer for the Tigers. He hit
a fly ball deep into the corner in
left. Ike Brown had a long run
for the ball, and Brown and
the ball arrived at the fence at

about the same time, and the
ball bounced off Brown's glove
and over the fence.
Pittsburgh fattened their lead
in the hectic NL east by sweep-
ing a pair from the Phillies, 4-0
behind Dock Ellis and 8-3 as
Bruce Dal Canton upped his
record to 7-1.
Freddie Patek paced the Pi-
rates by rapping out six hits in
eight trips to the plate during
the twinbill, as Pittsburgh
moved two and one-half games
up on the Mets.
The second place Mets were
muffled 3-0 in St. Louis as Nel-
son Briles racked up his first
complete game of the season.
Cub Ken Holtzman flirted
with a no-hitter for seven in-
nings and Ron Santo pounded
out four hits as Chicago beat
Montreal, 4-2.
