"We have our leaders back." "I feel we have one of the finest crop of freshmen kids in a long time," the Tigerette coach added.

J.R. Richard, who was to have been on the Astros' bench, will be on the mound and Don Gullett, who was to have been on the mound, will be' in the Reds' bullpen. Those two unexpected developments came about Sunday when Richard hurled six innings of one-hit ball in the Astros' 3-0 victory over the Minnesota Twins while Gullett was bombed for nine runs and as many hits in just four innings of the Reds' 10-4 shellacking by the New York Mets. Cincinnati Manager Sparky Anderson promptly ruled that Gullett. ace of the Reds' staff, would be relegated to the bullpen for at least the first week of the season, with Gary Nolan Farm Service Center now featuring: NITROGEN SOLUTIONS FERTILIZERS BULK BLENDS I MICRONUTRIENTS SERVICE is always in season!™ UgSj Farm Service Center Carroll, Iowa 51401 712/792-9579 inheriting the opening day assignment. "I have never given up that many runs, not even in a spring training game." Gullett said. "1 had no rhythm. Everything was wrong. I tried to throw low and the pitch was high." Anderson, obviously upset, said Gullett. was "10 days to two weeks behind schedule" and blamed the hard-throwing left-hander for being out of shape. "If you know it takes you longer to get ready than most guys — and Don knows it takes him longer — then you've got to start early." Anderson said. Meanwhile. Richard, another fireballer but often a wild one, was impressing Houston Manager Bill Virdon and pitching himself to the top of the Astros'staff. "I hadn't made up my mind until today," Virdon said after making Richard his opening day choice. "I think the main thing he's learned is to control himself. I don't know if he's throwing as hard now as he used to. but he's certainly throwing more strikes." Buddy Bradford and Bob Coluccio homered in a seven-run sixth inning and. Brian Downing connected in the eighth as the Chicago White Sox ripped the St. Louis Cardinals 16-1 behind an 18-hit assault. , The Philadelphia Phillies also rapped out 18 hits in winning a 15-9 slugfest from the Detroit Tigers. Garry Maddox belted a grand slam homer. Bobby Tolan drove in four runs with a horner and double and Mike Schmidt slammed a two-run homer. The San Diego Padres erupted for seven runs in the fourth inning and crushed the Chicago Cubs 13-3. Fred Lynn broke out of his spring slump by driving in four runs with a homer and double as the Red Sox pounded the Pittsburgh Pirates 11-5. Baltimore ace Jim Palmer was rocked for seven runs and 14 hits in six innings as the New York Yankees whipped the Orioles 9-3. The Kansas City Royals, who pounded out 14 runs and t !9 hits Saturday, added 15 'more hits and trounced the Atlanta Braves 83. Cleveland's Jim Kern limited Milwaukee to one hit in six innings and the Indians beat the Brewers 4-2. Von Joshua's two-run homer'off Rollie Fingers enabled San Francisco to beat the Oakland A's5-3.

Resigns Syracuse University Coach Glances, See Page 7 Goblirsch Controlled traffic (arming is a concept getting a lot of attention lately . . . and probably even more in 'the future. Idea of the operation is to keep tractors moving only on surfaces not used for crops. Basically that seems quite unreasonable since the crops are in the field and it is usually necessary to get the tractor out there to do any good. None of that has changed. With controlled traffic farming the tractor would be driven on paths between the rows. Paths used only for the machinery. In most concepts of this type operation the paths would be the only points of compaction in the field. Therein lies the reason for concern. If compaction can be reduced, root systems can be more completely developed and higher yields would result. At Auburn University in Alabama a controlled traffic farm experiment resulted in a yield 43 per cent higher than crops grown with conventional tillage.
