The local Indians, in living up to their preseason billing as the No. 1 team in the CKL, scored their third straight win, the second in league action last Tuesday by defeating the Great Bend Black Panthers, 72-58. The Monarchs, also in action last Tuesday, gave what was probably their best performance of the season, but came out two points short againgt a good Dodge City team, 73-71. Both local squads were spearheaded by 29 point outputs last Tuesday. " For the Indians it was Bill Giles, and for the Monarchs it was Terry Kisner. The 29 for Giles came on 13 of 21 from the field and three Of five at the line and was,one point short of his all-time high, which was 30 against Meade last season. For Kisner it was his first 20 plus performance in 26 games as a starter. Kisner, who had a previous high of 19, had a^ood shot at the Monarchs' all-time scoring record, but hit only five of 13 at the free throw line, which included missing the front end of three one-and one situations. < Handling most of the scoring punch for the Monarchs so far, have been Kisner and Curt Stremel. Of the 230 points tallied by the Monarchs in the four games, the pair has accounted for 153.. Kisner leads the way with 80, while Stremel has 73. Next on the scoring list for the Monarchs is Terry Karlin with 31. The Indians, with more of a balanced scoring attack, have four of five starters averaging in the double figures. Giles is the leader with 63, followed by Dave Hays with 55, Randy Brehm 49, Kirt Maska 30 and Bob Wiesner. The Indians may be getting a break, as Manhattan's flasy guard Tim Jankovich may still be out after spraining an ankle in the loss to Salina South last Friday. If the 5-10 playmaker makes it into the game, he will not be able to go at full speed. In Manhattan's season opener against Wamego, Jmikovich tallied 28 points.

"They have very much the same team, they had last season," said TMP coach Al Billinger, who hasn't forgotten the blasting the Lions gave his Monarchs at the Field House last season. . Concerning the Monarchs' loss to Dodge City, coach Billinger explained, "They were an exceptional quick team. I think our boys learned a lot from it." Coach Billinger went on to say that his newest starter Driving Nugget Fatty Taylor's (21) elbow skims by the chin of Seattle rookie guard Bob Wilkerson (33) as the Denver guard drives to the basket during the first quarter of the NBA contest in Seattle Wednesday night.

Finley and his •Oakland A's seeking damages of $3.5 million from Baseball Commissioner Bowie Kuhn. Finley charged that Kuhn exceeded his authority in voiding the sale by the A's of pitcher Rollic Fingers and outfielder Joe Rudi to the Boston Red Sox for $2 million and of pitcher Vicla Blue to the New York Yankees for $1.5 million. The sales were completed June 15. Kuhn, after a hearing, voided the transactions "in the best interests of baseball" on June 18. Finley originally charged Kuhn with violation of the antitrust law in three of the seven sections of his suit. But McGarr, in September, dismissed the anti-trust allegations and specified the other four parts of the suit should go to trial. McGarr will hour the case without a jury. Should Finley win, the judge will decide the extent of money damages. In addition to the $3.5 specified damages, Finley sought punitive damages of $U) million. Kuhn, should he lose the case, would not have to pay the damages personally, since baseball owners in August voted to activate u resolution passed in 1969 under which they would indemnify the commissioner for any damages assessed against him because of his decisions or actions as commissioner..
