12 Sports IIIIIII I I I Rutter on Sports By DAVE RLrI'FER The Message -- for Catholics of Southwestern Indiana I I I i Madam Zola says Cards, Yankees bucking the stars May 13, 1988 ii 4" I stepped through the low-arched front door and through the matted, burgundy beads that hung from the foyer ceiling. It was like the back room in Bogart's Club Americain in "Casablanca." The room was dimly lit and smelled of old books, incense and sneakers. I had entered Madame Zola's House of Astrology, Tarot Cards, Palm Readings and Aluminum Siding. Somebody had to get to the bottom of this situation. If Nancy Reagan was deciding what day to invade Grenada based on whether Jupiter was properly aligned with Mars, there must be something deeply meaningful about this business. (As an American citizen, I was glad the president was getting advice from SOMEBODY. For a while there, I though he was just making up foreign policy minute-to-minute. But now I realize there's a grand cosmic design to the thing and I certainly do feel better knowing this.) But back to the point. I was determined to find out how it might be affecting the world of sports. Tell me, Madame Zola, do you do readings for anyone important? "Don Mattingly come here and seems like he somebody important, although I'm not quite sure what he does," she said. "A regular customer and sweet boy. Yes, he was born on April 20. He's a Taurus on the cusp of Aries. Very strong minded and aggressive, but with a hint of spiritual vulnerability. This makes him susceptible to sliders from lefthanders.., especially after the All-Star break. He was born in 1960 which is another borderline year. Five days after the day in I I I 1865 that Mr. Lincoln had that unpleasantness at Ford's Theater. I told Don never to buy a Ford." What do the signs say about Mattingly being in the World Series this year? I asked. "What's the World Series?" Never mind, I said, it's just something that happens in October. "Well, the success of an early-month Taurus is clouded in early October by the confluence effects of a late-developing Taurus -- looks like someone born on May 16. This second Taurus indicates the combined cross-currents of violent storms, fist fights and topless bars." Yes, I said, that's Billy Martin, all right. "And then there's always the influence of the Independence Day Cancer." Who? "Born on July 4. I can't quite make out the name but it's something like Stulebrynner, or Stimebummer." Think I can guess on that one. So, what's the problem with this Cancer? "As with all Cancers, they are basically selfish, self-centered types with a strong affinity for the good life. Attila the Hun was a Cancer. Be- in 8 close to them is like slow-dancing with a por- cupine. It's a risky proposition. Independence Day Cancers aren't crazy, but they make almost everyone around them loony. So, I wouldn't count on these Tauruses being in a good frame of mind when October comes around." Doesn't sound good for the Yankees. How about closer to home? What if I were the manager of a baseball team and my birthday was I II St. Philip Cougars Students from St. Philip School, St. Philip, were the overall winners in a track competition at Mater Dei High School, Evansville.

"Ah yes, a Scorpio, You say this is a baseball question? You sure this guy doesn't work on 'General Hospital?" I could give a much clearer answer in that case." No, baseball is what I'm wondering about. "OK, Nov. 9. Yes, it's coming into much clearer focus now. He must build success on ag- gressiveness and attention to small details. He prefers fast to slow in most details of his business. He likes to hit-and-run with less than two strikes. He does his best thinking in a fishing boat and his hair leeks like dirty snow. Am I close?" Yep, I said. That's Whitey Herzog. "Never heard of him. But I must tell you that the success of Whitey person is seriously jeopar- dized by another Scorpio; this one borfl on Nov. 16. They are situated in the zodiac in such a con- fluence that the terminal nexes indicate detrimetal relationships. This other Scorpio is a physician from New York." A physician from New York? "Sure, Dec Gooden. But all is not lost." How's that? "Well, this Scorpio named Herzog will surely succeed this year beyond his wildest dreams, ex- cept for that one minor exception to the astrological perfection of his star system. Just one glitch that could throw all the forecast out of kilter. But it's so minor that I hesitate to even bring it up." Yeah, what's that? "This guy doesn't run a team from Missouri, does he? This is a very bad year for Missouri."
