(AP) After one month and one million words, the trial of Wisconsin's antitrust suit against baseball is nearing an end. The verdict — with all its repercussions for the National League, the Braves, Milwaukee and Atlanta — is likely to come just in time to collide head-on with the opening of the baseball season 11 days from today. Defense attorneys said they planned to rest their case today. Each side will have one more time at bat to the courtroom in rebuttal testimony. The state was expected to wind up in only one day. Circuit Judge Elmer W. Roller, hearing the case without a jury, has said he wants to make a ruling by April 12, the day the Braves are scheduled to open in Atlanta. Wisconsin has accused the National League and its 10 members of violating antitrust laws by approving, through what the state calls a monopolistic conspiracy, the transfer of the Braves from Milwaukee to Atlanta. * * * The most dramatic testimony may have come Thursday, but none of it was public. The day's proceedings were concentrated in Roller's chambers, where testimony dealt with the confidential financial records of the National League clubs. Roller, sealing his doors, hon- FREE -OVEN WARE- FREE Of EXTRA COST) (OF EXTKA COS!) PROVINCIAL OVENWARE you, oni easterners, famous SOLANA OVENWABE FREE it *ppnci» ation of your continued patronage.

''I've just gotta slow him down," Franks said. "He's coming along too fast." Mays took another day off today, his third since the exhibition schedule started March 12. In between those days of rest, though, the 34-year-old whiz has slowed down about as much as he does during the regular season. In the Giants' 7-4 victory over California Thursday, Mays increased his spring average to .382 by lashing two doubles and ! a single and drove in two runs' for a total of 13. * * * Mays has accumulated most of his 21 hits and 13 RBI while playing only five and six and sometimes seven innings in a game. His nine-inning perform- ace against the Angels marked his first complete game of the spring. "He just gets better and better," California Manager Bill Rigney said. In another exhibition of power Thursday, Tony Conigliaro hit his seventh homer of the spring and drove in four runs as Boston walloped Washington 104. Jim Gentile's three-run homer capped a seven-run sixth inning that powered Houston past Philadelphia 12-9. « * * Cincinnati edged Baltimore 32 on Art Shamsky's two-run homer in the ninth, and Mike Shannon and Lou Brock hom- ered as St. Louis beat the Chicago White Sox 7-5. Successive doubles by pinch hitter Sandy Valdespino and Jimmie Hall in the 10th inning opened the way for a three-run rally that gave Minnesota a 6-3 victory over the New York Kan- kees. Detroit scored two runs in the ninth on 'Mickey Stanley's single and Jim Pagliaroni's passed ball for an 8-7 decision over Pittsburgh. The New York Mets erupted for four runs in the seventh and handed Kansas City its sixth straight defeat 7-3. boro, CoiTuni, Harriiburg and Hughes, The junior field it wide open. * * * At his horn* last night Reed said: "There are quite • few schools we haven't heard from, so we still might pick up one or two in the morning. The date- mark deadline was last night but some of the schools are far enough away that they could (till make it." Holly Grove and Hazen are entered for the first time. Reed didn't know exactly what to look for in noteworthy times and distances but offered: "There's a rumor that Harrisburg has a boy who runs 10.1 on grass. Jonesboro has a boy who puts the shot over SO feet and two boys who can clear 12 feet in the vault." * * * Admissions for the Invitational are 75 cents for adults, 35 cents for students in the afternoon. There is no charge for the morning prelims. Don Watson of Osceola is official starter.
