Twins Schedule 3 Ram Games ST. PAUL-MINNEAPOLIS (AP) Three American League baseball games, post poned because of rain last week, have been rescheduled by the Minnesota Twins. The April 12 game with Oakland has been rescheduled as an afternoon game Aug. 10, previously an open date. The April 13 postponement with Kansaj City will be played as a night game May 14, which was an open date. The postponed April 14 game with the Royals will be played July 1 as part of a twi-night doubleheader. New Light on the Subject jjjy uiie ui many Cyclist Woes And the Subject Is Sports By STEVE SNIDER TEW YORK (LTD - A 1 whole new world opened up on May 23, 1933 when Larry MacPhail switched on the lights at Cincinnati's Crosley Field for the first night baseball game in Major League history. DAY PEOPLE discovered the night. Night people discovered baseball. "It was the beginning of a realization that daytime sports could be played outdoors at night on a major scale," says lighting expert George W. Clark of Danvers.

The spectator attendance exceeded 45,000 potential customers! i - i r j DISCOVER AMERICA J IMass. "It's not the same thins but they can be played and enjoyed." Football already was being played at night. Baseball recorded its first game under electric lights as far back as 1883 at Fort Wayne, Inc., and a few minor league parks already had "gone night" before MacPhail's depression-inspired experiment. But Larry's original lights still glow the brightest in sports history. SINCE THEN, night games have become the backbone of baseball's record attendance accounting for roughly half the total of 25,225,565 in the majors last season. Lights have saved many a football program in the high schools and smaller colleges. Lights permit early season football in the cool of the evening at major colleges in the South and Far West Lights . . . horses, autos, dogs and bikes race under them, golfers and tennis players flail away under them, swimmers and skiers compete under them, bowlers bowl, boxers box, casters cast, skaters skate and shuffle-boarders shuffle. "THE SHEER idea of extending recreational playtime into the night hours promoted the boom," says Clark. Now we're in the midst of another revolution. This one was brought about by color television. What TV wants, TV gets. The result is more and better light in modern arenas than ever before. Better view for the spectators. Better vision for the athletes who had learned to live with less light and now are thriving with more. "BEFORE COLOR television," says Clark, "black and white cameras could make do with the average outdoor sports lighting systems. In many cases, there really wasn't enough light for perfect TV pictures but events could be telecast. "Color cameras are more demanding. They require much more light. New lighting systems to accommodate color cameras now are three times brighter than the best of the old ones." Aside from a better TV picture, what does it mean? "LIGHT AFFECTS t h e speed of vision," says Clark. "You can go out in the moonlight and on certain nights you can read a newspaper but you can't read it very fast. "As we raise the lighting levels, it's possible to see more quickly. You can see more at a distance than ever before. You can see action you might have missed otherwise, a close play at second base or a catch deep in the outfield." Competitors as well as spectators benefit, he says. "BATTERS should be able to hit the ball better," Clark suggests, "unless there is something involved in the direction of the lights. But in terms of sheer quantity, how well the ball is lighted, the batter should be able to see it better." Clark is a member of the Staggs Leaves Lawrenceburg Coaching Post T AWRENCEBURG - Leon-ard Staggs, head football coach at Lawrenceburg for the past 22 years, will hand in his resignation tomorrow effective at the end of the current school year. "I'm leaving with mixed emotions," said Staggs, whose teams have compiled at 127-87-14 record. "I would like to think the officials, athletes, and parents for the confidence they've had in me and the cooperation they've given me the last 22 years." STAGGS SAID his immediate plans were indefinite, but that he is still interested in coaching. The 48-year-old Staggs took seven teams to post-season bowls, including two to t h e Clinic Bowl. In 1964, he was named Midstate Coach of the Year by THE NASHVILLE TENNESEAN. He coached basketball at Lawrence County High for 18 seasons, compiling at 327-143 record, including six district crowns and 11 regional berths. Illuminating Engineering Society which was founded in 1906 by a group including Thomas A. Edison. The IES. currently with some 10,009 U.S. members, is a non-profit group engaged in research on proper lighting practices and the dissemination of informa tion. Its standards are accepted world-wide a s guidelines for lighting installations of all types. Like many members, Clark is a working engineer and manager of Sylvania's lighting equipment design engineering facility at Danvers. THE NASHVILLE TENNESSEAN. Unity.

A recent issue of Horse and Hound, the English horse sports weekly, contained a back cover picture o f Nashville's Guilford Dudley Jr., U.S. Ambassador to Denmark, and Mrs. Dudley, accepting a trophy. The prize was won by Dudley's Lord ROME (UPI) - Stray dogs are one of the minor problems confronting the men who are planning the most expensive sports event in Italy. THE BIGGEST problem on the annual cycle tour of Italy, which this year carries a $560,000 budget and can make a man a millionaire overnight, long has been the disrupting effect on city life. Tour organizer Vincenzo Torriani solved the city problem for this year's 53rd championship by taking the race, one of the world's top four or five cycle events, mostly through the rural areas of Italy. A natural hazard of the countryside is stray dogs. Torriani hopes to solve that, too, by ordering police to round them up in advance and taking out insurance to protect anyone who is bitten by any stray that eludes police. NONE OF THE riders this time will pass through a major city and for the first time since it began in 1909 the race is not ending in Milan, Rome, Florence, Trieste or Naples. It finishes at Balzano, situated 7,389 feet in the mountains near the borders of Austria and Switzerland. The race starts May 17, lasts 20 days and sends cyclists pedalling 2,053 miles over a long, winding route covering most of the Italian peninsula. It is the shortest distance, however, since 1930. The tour went rural chiefly because it came to grief last year in some of the cities. Striking dockworkers blocked the start of one lap in Naples. Fighting among the strikers delayed another start in Parma. A riot among anti-Vietnam war demonstrators in Milan disrupted another lap. MOREOVER, every time racers reach a city, they found authorities were unable to clear some busy streets in time for 1,000 cyclists, newsmen and team officials. The largest city now on the tour is Balzano, 89,000. But because the route is so long and winding, about 15 million persons will see parts of the race. Another 10 million will watch on television. It is a big business. More than 80 towns and cities applied for consideration as overnight stopping points even though they must pay $16,000 for the honor. Most take it back on what the tour entourage spends and get a bonus dividend in publicity. The tour is profitable for everyone. Newsmen, team officials and technicians spent S2.4 million last year. Not included was money paid to 36,000 police who patrolled the route. Many of the lucky towns are picked because they offer good hotels and restaurants or because they are situated between two other overnight stops. Some are picked for less likely reasons. Last year, Torriani selected one mountain-top hazard himself while driving to visit a sick relative. The lap involved was so tough that the defending champion, Vittorio Adorni of Italy, blamed it for his defeat. Torriani made sure that same lap was back on the tour this year. Organization is still a jumble of requirements for Torriani and his staff of 70.
