"If we don't set high goals," he said, "we'll never get out of 10th place." The high point of McGraw's fist season in Shea came on the night of Aug. 22, when he defeated the great Koufax, 5-2, with a little help in the eighth and ninth innings from Jack Fisher. Not even that milestone, though, meant as much to him as his first appearance in the major leagues four months earlier, on Easter Sunday. "Beating Koufax was great," he said, "but that first appearance -- two-thirds of an inning against San-Francisco -- I can sit here and remember every pitch going toward home plate. I can even see the seams on the ball. "I looked over and saw that the first batter was Orlando Cepeda, and he looked 12 feet tall. But I struck him out on a curve, then got Bob Shaw out, and it was over."

I., Jan. 18-- Bob Farrington returned to action at Roosevelt Raceway tonight, after being absent five nights of a suspension. The leading driver in the nation for four of the last five seasons, Farrington pleased his followers in the crowd of 16,108 by guiding two winners home in seven attempts. Farrington might have had another winner but for an accident in the sixth race, i which his Dandy Do finihsed in a dead heat for third. Pacing next to Russell Rach on Isa R. in the backstretch, Farrington locked wheels with Rash's sulky when the latter's horse broke. Rash was thrown to the ground, but Farring managed to get clear and pilot Dandy Do to the share of third money, back of Mighty Twinkle and a 68-to-1-shot, Count Frost. Rash was taken to the first-aid room for examination and was quickly released. His horse suffered a broken front leg, which was put in a cast by Dr. Bernard Brennan, the track veterinarian.
