THE LAKERS shot only 34 per cent from the floor in the first half By Max Greoiuvaldi Milwaukee, Wis. (UPI) The Milwaukee Bucks toyed with the Los Angeles Lakers for three quarters yesterday afternoon and then blew them out of the Milwaukee Arena in the fourth period to take a 91-73 victory. The triumph gave the Bucks a 2-0 lead in the best of seven finals of the Western Conference of the National Basketball Association. THE LAKERS, whose personnel situation was already critical since neither Jerry West nor Elgin Baylor was available for duty, received another blow just prior to the game. Keith Erickson did not even dress for the game. He remained in a Milwaukee hotel suffering from severe stomach cramps. The Bucks started out as if the game were going to be a shutout. A full court press and a couple of quick buckets gave Milwaukee a 5-0 lead. With a minute and a half gone the Lakers finally got on the board via a Gail Goodrich free throw. For the rest of the first half the Bucks kept the Lakers at L. " (ai '- ' ' W WHITE IS BEAUTIFUL THE SPECIAL PURCHASE WHITE SALE of DoVai Wait Pontioc, S300 N.

Indianapolis won an exhibition game from Three Rivers yesterday, 5-1, but there was some doubt about Jim M e r r i 1 1, the Cincinnati Reds' top winner the last two seasons. Merritl pitched the first 3'-t-inninqs for the Indians and signaled he wanted to he removed with a 1-1 count on the batter in the fourth. "My arm felt like it had tightened," said the southpaw who missed a month last season because of an elbow ailment. "I WAS FORCING my pitches," added the 1970 20-12 winner, "and I couldn't get loose." Cincinnati's timetable calls for Merritt to leave Tampa tomorrow to join the Reds in Atlanta. Pitching coach Scott B r e e d e n was tranquil about Merritt's showing: "He is making encouraging progress, the stiffness in his arm is normal." Merritt permitted the Three Rivers run but it was unearned. He allowed five hits and a walk, failing to show the pin-point control which has been his prime attribute. Merritt did fan three, getting one of these strikeouts to retire the side with the bases full in the first inning. Indianapolis got just six hits, one less than the Eagles, and ons of them was Eivio Ji-mnez' fourth homer of exhibition play. Tony Muser clouted a trip'e to drive in a run snd scored on a single by Jimenez. (J f lssel, Scott Tie For Rookie Of Year 0906 v7 w4 old-time flavor! 'pAMPA, FLA. LAST YEAR, Indianapolis was in the thick of the closest race in American Association history in the final week of the season. But the Indians ran into Omaha, which boat the Tribe three out of four games. That was a knockout punch for the Indianapolis pennant hopes and Omaha went on to win the championship. One of the Royals' villains in that caper was Billy Harris, who since has become a member of the Tribe squad. Vcrn Rapp, skipper of the Indians, has tested Harris' versatility in spring training competition in preparation for Billy's expected role as utility player. ' flarrls likes his new nrcanirnlion since "I learned this spring that InfM-'napilis, along with the other clubs in this camp, runs a Int. trHiTiapolis uses the steal and the hit-and-run and I like to run." ; Harris was a shortstop when he started as a high school lad. at Hamlet. N.C., where he also lettered in football, basketball and track. ( He helped Wilmington, N.C., Junior College win the national baseball title in 1963 and, after playing semi-pro ball, accepted a Cleveland offer to turn pro in 1966. Playing second base for Pawtucket, Harris was eighth in batting (.270) in the Eastern League in 1967. "Manager Alvin Dark of Cleveland told me in 1968 spring training he wanted me to be ready to play second, short and third. So I participated at those three positions and was sent to Portland. "About midway in the season, Dark called me up because of an Injury to Chico Salmon. And, sure enough, I played second, short and third during the rest of the season." After that campaign, Cleveland made Harris available in the expansion draft and he was taken by Kansas City at the going rate of $175,000 for each player. "I didn't know I was worth that much," Billy said with a grin. "I thought I had a good spring in 1969 with Kansas City but I was sent to Omaha. Then I was called June 1 to play second base for Kansas City. I started out with 2 out of 3 against Jim Lonbnrg of Boston hut after playing five games in the American League I tore the ligaments and muscles in my left, ankle." That finished Harris for that season and he spent all of 1970 at Omaha vher he hit .201 in 73 games. "I plaved ryprv nn'fMfj ppH infield pnsi'ifn for Omaha and Manager .Tp'- MrKooi vantr m to p'trh the last game of the season. Put. the game was rained nut." Harris was 'mded for Jv Ward, a 1970 Tribesman, who was wanted by Kansas City as a righthanded pinch-hitter. Rapp promsns Hirris will get lots of work since he can fill in for shortston Parrel Chaney, second baseman Jimmy Quails and first baseman Tony Muser when they must fulfill military obligations. 3 4. .Jf , (!)HjG1NL ' aV. : .iff squad selected by a nationwide panel of sports writers and sports broadcasters was Sam Robinson of the Floridians, Wendell Ladner of Memphis and Joe Hamilton of Texas.

Here at Popular Prices New York (AP) Dan Issel of Kentucky and Charlies Scott of Virginia finished in a tie for American Basketball Association Rookie of the Year honors and dominated its all-rookie team, the league said yesterday. Issel, the Co'onels' 6-fnol-9 center, won the scoring title with a 29.9 average. Scott, a 6-6 guard, was fifth with a 27-point average.

DENNY OSBORN was permitted to take extra warmup tosses in replacing Merritt and struck out the first four batters he faced. He was nicked for two hits in the sixth but worked out of trouble via a ground-ball double play. Southpaw Dave Tomlin and Ed Sprague also checked the Eagles in pitching an inning apiece. The Indians then ran out of hurlers so ex-Tribesman Joe Hamcnde was recruited to pitch a 1-2-3 ninth. Sprague whiffed two in the eighth.
