The Acid Test By now, nobody has to teli Powell how much it will mean It the Orioles if he can hit it big. And this was the start of the acid lest he will undergo within the next few weeks, being noted as a slow starter in the spring. "Actually, I'm not too worried, just nervous," Boog said in a low voice which seemed alien coming from a 6 foot, 4 inch frame on which he packs 240 pounds. "I feel 1 learned a lot this spring; I feel much more at home in the outfield than I have before." They don't ever expect him lo be a gazelle in the outfield, for he is a big one along the lines of a young Johnny Mize or Ted Kluszewski. The neck and shoulders are power-packed, set much like those of Mickey Mantle, and lie didn't look it. or show i t . i l i k e lhat. He didn't look loo good as lie stepped in and seeminglyjin Florida but that was because w i t h o u t effort poled a drive intoiof the high winds. Up here it should be different for him." Powell comes from Key West, Fla.. which he referred to ingly as "northern Cuba." He turned down seven football schol arship offers when he graduated from high school in 1959 to accept a $35,000 bonus from the Orioles. That year, with Bluefield in the class D Appalachian League, he batted .351. The next season, with Fox Cities of the class B'Three- Eye League, he hit .312. Then, last season at youngest player Rochester, the in the Interna- .ional League, he batted .320 and led the league with 32 home runs. A "Little Bugger" When he was a toddler, according to his father, he was "a little :ugger" always into mischief. That was shortened to "Boog," and hence the nickname. But Coach Harry (The Cat) Brechcen The relays will be Ihe first ol the big outdoor meets of the sea son. Entries from all nine Hum boldt-Del Norte schools will be in competition. Performances by six individuals from each school are totaled foi the field event results. The shot put record, for example, is 2515!i and was set by six Fortuna entries in IBM. Entry Rules Athletes are allowed to enter one track and two field events or two track and one field event, plus Ihe 880 or 440-yard relays. The importance of the entry rule was shown last year when Arcata lost 16 points and the title because the same runner entered the 100- yard dash, unlimited mile relay and sprint medley. As well as the field events and relays, there will be some individual dash races and four elementary school events. Fortuna's domination of the relays extends lo Ihe record books.

"He can be a Â·eal great one." and Arcata. St. Bernard's is the only Little Four school with a record, in Ihe B and C 75-yard dashes. Special attractions in the meet will be the shuttle hurdles and the distance medleys. The hurdles feature runners from each school racing in alternate directions, tagging each oilier on the back rather than using a baton. The medleys include a mixlure of dislances. The sprint medley composed of 330, 110, 220, and 440. while Ihe distance medley includes the 1320, 440. 880 and mile.
