With 98 wins in the regular season, Detroit Manager Sparky Anderson moved ahead of Fred Clarke into 11th place among baseball's winningest managers. His goal is to pass John McGraw for second place. He needs 1,229 wins to catch McGraw, who had 2,840. "If I stay healthy, I'll pass him," Anderson said, guessing it would take him 15 years. "I'm only 53. McGraw's the only one I want." Connie Mack holds the record with 3,776 wins. "Mack don't count," Anderson said.

When I began writing "The Boys of Summer" in the autumn of 1968, my friendship with Jackie Robinson proved a benediction. One significant aspect of that book was its commercial success. Robinson telephoned me during the summer of 1972, when the book was No. 1 in Boise, Brockton and elsewhere, and called me some X-rated names. "You've got my telephone ringing every damn minute," he said. "People seem to be finding out I'm not an Uncle Tom."

Re "State Republicans Pick Conservative Leader," March 1: Is it not a curious twist on Barry Goldwater's praise of extremism in defense of liberty that state GOP leaders now define being a "moderate" as too extreme for them? MICHAEL D. REAGAN Riverside John McGraw, the new state GOP chairman, said that the party had to "get back on message and be a party that gets the message out." Alas, he couldn't say what that message should be. In case he's still up a tree on the message, I have a suggestion: Take his cue from either of the brothers Bush or one of several other savvy GOP governors.
