Jones records 16th

By The Associated Press
CHICAGO - Randy Jones,
helped by a four-run third inn-
ing rally, broke the National
League record for most wins
before the All-Star Game with
his 16th victory yesterday as the
San Diego Padres defeated the
Chicago Cubs 6-3.
Jones, 16-3, has a chance to
tie Vida Blue's major league
record of 17 wins before the
All-Star Game. He is tentative-
ly scheduled to pitch Sunday
on two days rest against the
Philadelphia Phillies in the Pa-
dres' final game before the
Tuesday night's All-Star Game.
It was the fourth straight win
for the premier left-hander and
the 11th in his last 12 decisions.
He allowed seven hits, striking
out six and walking two. He was
aided by two balks and one wild
pitch by Chicago pitchers, who
contributed to two San Diego

Twins topple
BOSTON - Carl Yastrzemski
drove in three runs with his
15th homer and a single and
Carlton Fisk broke out of a
slump with three hits Thursday
night, powering the Boston Red
Sox to an 8-4 victory over the
Minnesota Twins.
Yastrzemski singled across a
run in the first and then belted
a two run homer into the Bos-
ton bullpen in the third. Yastr-
zemski hit only 14 homers all
last season.
Fisk had a single, double and
a triple, driving in two runs and
scoring one.
Fred Lynn joined in Boston's
13-hit attack with a single and
a double. He reached base five
times, twice on an error and
once on a walk, scoring three
runs and driving in one.

PICTURESQUE RANDY JONES uncorks another sinker in
the direction of another unfortunate opponent. Jones won his
16th game of the season yesterday, beating Chicago.

Taiwanese leave for Games

By The Associated Press
MONTREAL - Behind the scenes moves
to head off the journey to Montreal of the
controversial Taiwanese Olympic team
failed yesterday.
The International Olympic Committee
tried to persuade the Taiwanese to delay
their trip while Lord Killanin, IOC presi-
dent, sought a compromise settlement with
the Canadian government, the Associated
Press learned.
BUT THE Taiwanese - some 40 ath-
letes and 20 officials - refused. They
were reported leaving Taipei as scheduled
and were expected in Montreal Friday.
They were supposed to stop in California
to pick up 17 teammates who have been
training there.
The Canadian government has angered
the IOC by saying the Taiwanese will not
be admitted unless they drop the name of

the Republic of China in Olympic compe-
tition. Some IOC members have called for
the cancellation of the Games, due to
start July 17, if the Taiwanese are shut
Meanwhile, Henry Hsu, the IOC mem-
ber for Taiwan, arrived to battle for the
rights of his country's athletes and had no
difficulty with immigration authorities at
Montreal's Mirabel Airport - even though
he had an Olympic identity card marked
"Republic of China".
THREE OFFICIALS of the Taiwanese
team were already at Olympic Village.
They reportedly said they obtained visas
in Los Angeles on the Republic of China
The uncomplicated arrival of these Tai-
wanese raised hopes in IOC circles that
the Canadian government might relax its

As IOC members arrived for their an-
nual session prior to the Games, all the
evidence showed they will present a solid
front to the Canadian government. Even
Asian members, who have been pressing
for the recognition of Communist China in
the Games, were firm in their view that
Taiwan must be allowed to compete as a
matter of principle.
Hsu said in an interview the Canadian
government had broken its promise to the
Hsu said: "I hope the sportsmen of the
whole world will know that no matter how
magnificent the sports facilities may be,
and no matter how many Olympic records
may be broken, the Games will be mean-
ingless if the Canadian government chooses
to ignore and violate the fundamental prin-
ciples of the Olympic charter.

Sox sag
NEW YORK - A three run
homer by Roy White backed the
seven hit pitching of Ken
Holtzman and gave the New
York Yankees a 6-0 victory
over the Chicago White Sot
last night.
The victory was the second
for Holtzman since he was
acquired from Baltimore,
raising his season's record
to 7-6 and giving the Yankees
their seventh straight victory
over Chicago. White Sox start-
er Rich Gossage, 5-7, took the
White slammed his eighth
homer of the year after singles
by Jim Mason and Mickey Riv-
ers in the seventh inning to
clinch the victory for New York.
White had earlier robbed Chi-
cago's Bill Stein of a potential
extra-base hit with a fifth-inn-
ing circus catch in left field.
Holtzman snuffed out an ear
ly Chicago threat when Chet
Lemon and Jorge Orta singled
with one out in the first inning
and was never in serious trou-
ble thereafter, although he per-
mitted four doubles over the
last eight innings. Chicago nev-
er got more than one hit in any
inning after the first.
