Baldwin Paric defeats Terriers 11-5 Baldwin Park took advantage of seven Redlands High errors on the field to score an 11-5 win over the Terriers on the Baldwin park field yesterday. Coach Joe DeMaggio's Redlands nine out-hit Baldwm Park, the Montview League champs last year, 10-9 but the errors spelled the difference with the Braves allowing only one to the RHS 7. John Van continued his hitting pace by blasting out three hits in our trips to the plate including one triple. Ron Gerken hit 2 of 4, catcher Bob Campbell had two of three and Jones, Rogers and pitcher Steve Taylor all had one hit. Taylor started on the mound for the Terriers and Bobby Bums came in the fifth inning to relieve Taylor. When the Terriers meet Chine at China tomorrow Coach DeMaggio will have a pitching problem as he only has three pitchers and has used all of them in the last three days.

THREE-WHEELED WONDER - "The first 1970 car," designed for the ^electronic roads of the future, is unveiled at the 14th annual Grand National Roadster Show in Oakland, Calif. Owner-builder Jerry Woodward of Provo, Utah, sits at the wheel. Dubbed the "X1970-Vortex," the three-wheeled car was hand-builf by Woodward in six years at a cost of $5,000. He values it now at $35,000. He has already tested it at 150 m. p. h. on the Utah Salt Flats. The vehicle is powered by a 450 -hor5epower rebuilt V-8 in the rear. All of a sudden Maris thinks he's Williams By OSCAR FRALEY United Pren Intematienal FORT LAUDERDALE, Fla. (UPD—Ralph Houk, during the days when be was a sometime catcher for the New York Yankees and regarded by many as a heap of dead kindling, realized something that Roger Maris may have to learn. The major now directs the Yankee battalions with a suave, easy-going geniality, despite the lump of tobacco in his jaw. His is a command which he wears with befitting and becoming aplomb. "But there were times," he admits of the days before he became manager, "when I sat in a comer for long periods of time and nobody came around to talk to me." It could happen to Maris, the most pursued man of I96L Because all of a sudden he thinks he's another Ted Williams. Tbere are two ways of looking at such a self representation. First of all, despite those 61 home runs last season, anybody in baseball will give you 10-1 that Roger is only a fairly faint facsimile of the Splendid splinter. Williams was a hitter, and you can put that word in capital letters. Maris as a team hitter leaves more than something to be desired. Secondly, there are a number of people who wouldn't give you two used tea bags for Williams. And, like Ty Cobb, who wound up a very lonesome man in retirement, Williams isn't ever going to be elected the most popular man of the year ui a nationwide poll. He'll pay from now on for the rocks he threw at people who wanted to be friendly. So it is somewhat shocking when you hear Maris, the one- year wonder as of the moment, utter such inanities as: "Ted Williams had the right idea. Go your way and let the writers go theu-s." And: "I'm not going to say anthing and let tbeni write what they please." And: "Some writers have been fair. But I can't look at 30 writers and pick out 15 good ones and IS bad ones. I'm through. No more talking." ' Big deal. A touch football player who once piloted an explosive speedboat talks to newspapermen about his plans to protect the lives of 180 million people because he Qwl^ it's important that the people know what's going on. Before him, a golfing fellow went through the same routine. Another speed crazy guy whipped up into orbit and back and didn't feel that he was too big to answer a lot of silly questions. They're not even getting big fees for endorsing bubble gum, appearing.on television programs, suggesting that the neighborhood kids qmt using that "goop" on their hair, peddling razor blades and having their names emblazoned on sweatshirts. All at a fancy price. . As a man who puts the potatoes oBi the table by writing about s^rts and the men who are in them-^d has been doing so smce before Maris was even known in his home town—I find his whole big-headed attitutle rather insufferable. Not because of the sportswriters he scorns. But because of the kids in Keokuk or Kankakee who read all the slushy lagniappe which those same sportswriters dish out about him while gagging over Ibis puling pablum. For a man who belabored the ball at a rather anemic .269 clip, I would have to think that Maris has a rather swollen idea of his importance. Sports are grand fun when kept in their proper perspective, but if either of my two sons was a hero, I hope it's a modest fellow named John Glenn who went for the curcuit when it really counted. Because guys like Maris bat a round zero vith me. Five trotters closh in Santa Anita feature ARCADIA (UPD-Five diagonal gaited trotters clashed today in the featured Andrew Jackson Trot of the Western, Harness program at Santa Anita Park in a prelude to a later $20,000 Califomian Trot. Heading the field going to the post were Record Mat, Tidy Sister, Argo Can, Pigeon Hanover and Season's Catch. Seven sidewheelers were scheduled at the post for the supporting Sierra Madre Pace. On Wednesday, Scottish Command, a New Zealand import, made a successful debut in the United States by winning tte featured $3,500 Whittier Race. The New Zealander, driven by Joe Lighthill, paid a fat $19.60, $9.40 and $5.20 across the board. Scottish Command came up from third place in the stretch to win by a head over Black Flash. The time for the mile pace was 2:04. The favorite, Yankee Day, took the lead momentarily at the half- mile mark but weakened in the stretch and finished fourth. Jayvees hammer 54 win over Baldwin Park Redlands High's junior varsity hammered out a 54 win over the Baldwin Park JV's on seven hits to the Braves five. The Terriers got three runs in the second inning and one m both the sixth and seventh for the win. Tony Orozco was the winning pitcher with Tom McCutcheon catching. In the three-run second inning, McCutcheon singled, Knowlton walked, Fletcher walked, Orozco singled. Hurt singled scoring Knowlton and Campbell singled, scoring Fletcher and Orozco. Ray Hurt walked and stole second and scored when the shortstop made an error on Campbell's grounder, in the sixth. Knowlton single'd in Showier in the seventh for the final Redlands run. Coach Bill Foehner's club will meet the Chino JV's on the RHS diamond iat 3:13 p.m. on Friday. 22 errors mar four college practice tilts By United Press Intematienal Ballplayers committed 22 errors in four separate collegiate practice baseball games Wednesday, prompting coaches -to step up their spring drills. The University of California at Santa Barbara led the teams with six against Pepperdine College, which only tightened for one error. But Pepperdine's Tom Snyder broke the gloom with the game's only homer, a triple and two singles to pace the team with a convincing 13-4 victory over the Gauchos. Glen Weden backed up Snyder with three singles to drive in four runs. UCLA racked up its fourth straight baseball victory Wednesday by edging Occidental College, 5-3, in a nonconference game. 'The Bruins took advantage of four Oxy'miscues to give pitcher mike Hoey credit for the win. UCLA committed one error. Pomona College committed three errors but collected nine hits to defeat visiting La Verne College, 3-2, in-^a practice game. The losers contributed only one error but were held hitless until the eighth innnig. Cal Poly of Pomona got six runs in a big third inning to coast home with a 7-5 victory over visiting Long Beach State College. Long Beach was guilty of four costly errors while Cal Poly marked up two. In the third, the winners converted timely hits, a Long Beach error, a walk and a hit batsman to wrap up the game. IN TRAINING - Pvt. Jam e s Cook, who recently completed basic training at Fort Ord, has left Redlands after spending five days with his parents, Mr. and ms. Otto Cook. 425 Norwood street. He went by plane to Camp' Halliberd, Baltimore, Maryland, where he will spend 18 weeks in an Intelligence Security School. He will then receive an assignment. Private Cook is a ^aduate of Fork Union Military Academy in Fork Union, Virginia. He was edployed as psychiatric technician at Patton State hospital for two years before entering the .Army. Sam Snead Corp. to build golf course at Colton Sam Snead All-American Golf Corp. this week revealed plans to construct an 18-hole public golf course on 52 acres west of Colton. The proposal is e.\pected to come before the County Planning Commission April 29. Realtor Mellvme Fuchs, who promoted the project, said work on the course would begin immediately after approval is received. Proposed site of the public links is on Valley boulevard between Pepper and Riverside avenues. Construction when completed is estimated to reach into several million dollars. It reportedly is the first of ten public golf courses planned for Southern California by the Snead Corporation. Nine of the holes will be lighted for night play, according to Fuchs. There will also be a lighted driving range adjacent to a pro shop. Future plans reportedly include a 100-room motel and a restaurant next to the course. The' course was designed by Robert Trent Jones of New York. John B. Dellis of Cal-Golt Inc., with offices in Sacramento, will supervise construction, Fuchs said. Pro golfer Sam Snead and Architect Jones reportedly checked the site while Snead was playing in a golf tournament in Palm Springs recently. Redlands Ooif /fBcfs Thors^ Maiv 15^ 19(2 - 11 Canucks provide key to Seals, Blades playoff By United Press International The key to the San Francisco Seals-Los Angeles Blades struggle for a Western Hockey League playoff spot may be locked m the gloved fist of the Vancouver Canucks. The Canucks, only team in the eight-team league without even a remote mathematical chance to make the playoffs themselves, provide the competition for the blades and Seals this week—they have two games at Los Angeles and one in San Francisco. And Wednesday night it was the Canucks who permitted the Seals to scoot by the Blades into thu-d place. The Seals survived a third- period Vancouver rally to win it, 3-2. In the WHL's other action, Portland took another step toward clinching first place in the Southern Division by dumping Calgary, 6-2, and Edmonton moved closer to the Northern Division crown with a 5-1 win over Spokane. The Seals moved away to a 3-0 lead over Vancouver early in the third period and then shuddered slightly as the Canucks' Phil Maloney scored twice and threatened to do it a third time. Nick Mick- oski had two of the Seal tallies. The win gave San Francisco 54 points in the Southern Division, two ahead of the idle Blades. Third place is a prize because the first three teams of each division go to the playoffs. San Francisco has four more games, one against Vancouver and all four at home. Los Angeles has five to play, all at home except for one head-to-head clash with the Seals at the Cow Palace next Wednesday. At Portland, the Buckaroos set an all-time league attendance record for a season as Wednesday night's crowd of 9,305 swelled the home attendance figure to 272,939, breaking Portland's own record of 265,198. The Buckaroo win stretched theu- Souftem Division lead to eight points over Spokane. Len Lirade scored three goals and assisted on a fourth as Edmonton bombed Spokane. Connie Madigan scored the lone goal against the Flyers, who advanced to five points in front of Calgary in the Northern Division. The league has the night off tonight.

Gallatin named coach of once potent Hawks ST. LOUIS (UPI) — St. Louis Hawks Coach Harry Gallatin promptly announced he was going to return to the "organized fast break" style of Alex Hannum and planned on keeping a "happy family" among Hawks players after being named floor general at a press conference Tuesday.

Commenting on dissension among Hawks players earlier this year, Gallatin said, "AU that is past, and we're going to have one happy family." The dissension, coupled with the collapse of the once mighty Hawks who dominated the National Basketball Association's Western Division for six years, led to the dismissal 'of former Coach Paul Seymour,' who started the season as coach. That squabble was over Seymour's msistence on playing rookie backliner Cleo Hill, who since has announced he wants to quit pro basketball. Referring to Hannum's style, the coach who led the Hawks to their only league championship in 1958, Gallatin said "We'll run when we can and when we can't we'll use the power basketball that takes advantage of the Hawks' big men." fRACTURED PERFESSER peruse ^ -the onu^nno'St:.
