Bigfork top contender for Class B track title Braves honored During an awards assembly Wednesday, these three Flathead High School students received plaques and trophies honoring their achievements this school year. From left to right the students and their awards are: Jeff Bennett, the Sob Olsen Award for wrestling and the Michael Burton Award (or athletic competition; Chad Remington, two Les Chapin Awards for basketball; Doug Tinning, the Denny Buck Memorial Award and the Greg Little Award, both for athletic competition. Photo by Mary Picket! Brett approaches no-hitter ANAHEIM (AP) - Ken Brett hasn't been with the Chicago White Sox long enough to think about a regular starting job, let alone a no- hitter. But the left-handed pitcher known for his hitting came within a few inches of fame in only his second start witn Chicago. Brett mowed down 23 California players, gave up a walk, and had two oul in the ninth Wednesday night before a strange occurrence took away his shot at glory. As it turned out, a scratch single by Angel second baseman Jerry Remy didn't affect the outcome, Chicago's 1-0,11-inning triumph. All it did was keep a frustrated Brelt from a no-hitter that was "in the bag." "This isn't the first time," said the 2 7 - y e a r - o l d , B r o o k l y n - b o r n , California-reared and Boston- educated hurler who wound up with a two-hitter in 10 innings of work. "Two years ago in Pittsburgh I had eight.. perfect innings against San Diego, but I relaxed too much and Fred Kendall -- who I've known all my life -- sliced a slider for a base hit. So I've come close before." He was one out away before Remy checked his swing and rolled one down to third baseman Jorge Orta. Orta, a converted outfielder, dashed over but the ball went underneath his glove -- by mete inches -- and the official scorer ruled it a hit. "If that's a hit, I'm bleep, bleep, bleep. It's a brutal call. If this is Chicago, it's an error," Brett said. Bill Melton took some of the pres- sure off official scorer Don Merry of the Long Beach Independent, Press- Telegram. Orta said he didn't know whether it was an error: "I thought I had my glove down far enough and the ball would come up. It didn't." Brett got last-inning help from Clay Carroll to preserve the triumph and the newly acquired Chicagoan is now 2-0 with an ERA of .000. His first start last Monday came a week after he was traded from the New York Yankees. In that game he permitted just one hit to Oakland in five innings. Carroll relieved in that one, too, as Chicago won 5-0. The While Sox have now won 10 in a row with this extra- inning conquest, their longest slreak since 1967. Yankees I, Indians 3 Oscar Gamble stung his former team wilh a run-scoring pinch single in the seventh inning, capping a three-run rally that lifted New York over Cleveland. Gamble, who was traded from Cleveland to New York last November, connected off. reliever Tom Buskey -- a former ^nkee -- with two out to score pinch-runner Sandy Alomar, who had stolen second base. Brewers 6, Red Soi 2 Powered by two-run homers by Gorman Thomas and George Scott, Milwaukee defeated Boston and snapped a winning streak for the Red Sox. Winner Jim Slaton, 7-1, scattered eighl hits and pitched out of several jams. The Brewers took the lead to stay at 2-1 in the second on a single by Robin Yount and Thomas' second homer of the year, breaking a string of 19 consecutive shutout innings by Boston pitchers. A single by Darreil Porter and Scott's fourth homer made it 4-1 in the third and chased loser Dick Pole, 1-2. Royata 14-4, Hangers 2-t Kansas City's Fred Patek and Amos Olis drilled home runs to back Dennis Leonard's six-hit pitching as the Royals ripped Texas in the first game of their doubleheader. Al Cowens' run-scoring infield single in the ninth inning gave the Royals a lie in the suspended nightcap. The s e c o n d g a m e was suspended because o{ a 1 a.m. local American League curfew and will begin at 7 p.m. (CDT) tonight with the Royals coming to bat in the top of the 10!h inning. Orioles fi-2. 'Pipers 0-6 Lee May drove in four runs and Paul Blair hit a two-run homer to pace Baltimore past Detroit in their first game. Ron LeFlore extended his hitting streak to 29 games with a tworun homer that helped Detroit win the second game. Twins 6, .Vs 1 Minnesota's Dan Ford hit his eighth home run of the season, tying him for the American League lead, to send Minnesota ahead as the Twins went on to beat Oakland. Ford homered off Oakland starter Paul Mitchell, 1-3, leading off the fifth inning to snap a 1-1 tie. The homer tied him with Boston's Carl Yastzremski and Cleveland's George Hendrick. BILLINGS (AP) - They may not be big. but they have a lot of fun. "They" are Ihe track-and-lield athletes of Montana's Class B and C high schools, who will congregate in Billings on Friday for their 1976 stale meet. The entry lists of Ihe event are replete with triple threats -athletes whose attendance at small schools gives them a showcase for fheir abilities in a variety of events. In the case of Twin Bridges, it's a quintuple threat. Dale Giem of Twin Bridges already holds two Class C state records -- for the 220 and 400 -- and he's entered in five events for the state meet. Not only that, but he won all five of his events last week in the Western Division runoff, giving the Falcons 30 of their 36 points en route to a division crown. On the basis of comparative division marks, Giem does not rank in the top three of Class C athletes for the 100-yard dash, but his 50.6 in the 440 and 2:04.1 for the half-mile are bests, and he is tied for second in. the 220 and high hurdles. Boys teams from Three Forks and Frenchlown and girls squads from Cascade and Melstone are the defending champions. Only Cascade is rated a favorite to repeal, but the Badgers have to overcome the challenge fo Harlowton and Bigfork. Cascade is paced by speedy Pam Chambers, whose 11.6-second time in the century is the best by a Class B girl this year. Judy Smith of Bigfork gives the Vikings a potential for 12 points in the distances, where her marks of 2:31.1 and 5:29.7 are the fastest of any girl in the division. Harlowton can count on points from hurdler Linda Budge, but Barb Wolcotl of Belgrade also returns in the 110-yard hurdles, where she holds the Class B record of 15 seconds flat. Sandy Aldrich of Terry, another Class B record-holder, is one of three girls who have high jumped 5 feet, 1 inch. Her record is 5-2. The high jump bar' is apt to go much higher in Class C, where Kim Abbott of Philipsburg sets her sights on beating her statewide best of 55%. Abbott could set a new Class C record with anything over 5-1. The smallest schools also have produced two other girls who could compete on any level this year: Fran Peterson of Alberton and Kathy Estes of Philipsburg. Estes, the stale mile record- holder, also holds the Class C 880 record at 2:19.1. She has not approached her 5:12.9 mile mark of last year, but she posted fine 2:26.2 and 5:23.8 times in divisional. Peterson holds the class record for the long jump at 16-10. She has gone 16-SV; this year, and also has recorded an 11.6-second IOC-yard dash which would break the Class C record if repeated at slate. Melstone's Tammy Lang also has been clocked in 11.6. Three Forks finished third in Us own divisional and is not regarded as a factor in the boys' portion of Class B, but the Wolves find no shortage of willing replacements. Troy and Chester upset Bigfork and Big Sandy, respectively, in division meets, and all four clubs should enter strong contingents. Huntley Project, the Southeastern B champion, qualified 12 individuals and two relay teams for the state meet, and Forsyth of the same division topped that with 13 individual qualifiers and two relays. Despite the 4:29.8 mile and 10.10.2 two-mile of Bigfork's Bruce Ross last week, Class B shows little evidence of having the one-man teams seen in Class C. Th« nearest approximation might be Broadus' Don Samutlson, who has flipped the discus 1*4-4 for a classification top four in the long jump and triple jump. The presence of Giem and Ihree speedy competitors promises to turn the dashes into the most exciting events of the Class C meet. Giem's Class C records are 228 and 49.5. He will be pressed in the shorter sprints by Greg Stene of Columbus and Stanford's Brantley Forgy. Stene is a bona fide threat to set three Class C records by Saturday. His best mark of 9.8 seconds would clip two-tenths off the 19-year-old mark of 10 flat. He also has come within inches of records in the long jump and triple jump. Forgy, cut in the same mold as Giem, won three events in his divisional meet, took second in the high hurdles and ran on a first-place relay team. In the 440, Giem faces a severe test from Pat Gallagher of Geyser, whose best so far is 50.9 and whose presence sets up the possibility of two small-school runners breaking the 50-second barrier in the same race. Pro goiters owe debt to late Bobby Jones COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) - Tournament golf is a profesional sport still played by amateur rules, Jack Nicklaus says, and the man responsible for it was the late Bob Jones. "If it hadn't been for Jones, his ethics and lofty standards, there is no telling which way the game might have gone when it got so big after the war," added the world's top-ranking player. "Jones had tremendous influence. When so many people began playing and so much money was involved, the game could easily have gone the other direction. "But it didn't. It is the only sport w h e r e t h e p l a y e r s r u l e o n themselves. No other sport has been freer from cheating and scandal." Nicklaus changed hats today, launching over a course of his own design a tournament which he hopes to pattern after the famous Masters in Augusta, Ga., which came out of Bobby's head. It is the Memorial Tournament, being played this weekend over the Muirfield Village Golf Club on the outskirts of Columbus, where Jack was born and reared. Fittingly, the inaugural event was dedicated to the amateur immortal from Atlanta, who crammed 13 British and U.S. open and amateur championships into the space of eight years and retired from competition at the age of 28 after completing the Grand Slam in 1930. "No man except my father has had a greater impact on my golf career," Jack recalled. Jones, plagued during his later- years by a crippling illness lhat confined him to a wheelchair, died Dec. 18, 1971. "When I was a kid of 11 or 12 years old playing around the Scioto Club, all I ever heard were old-timers talking about how Jones played this hole and that hole when he won the Open there in 1926.

May 3-1), (n) Who understands Inoki's rules? TOKYO (AP) -- The June 26 match between world heavyweight boxing champion Muh- hammad AH and pro wrestler Antonio Inoki may give rise to a new sport: trying to understand the rules of their contest. Officials in Inoki's camp Wednesday announced the battle's regulations, which often read like a student's multiple-choice examination. One rule says that the referee may separate the pair only if they get tangled in the ropes. If a contestant is thrown out of the ring, he has 20 seconds to return before being counted out. But a man also could be beaten if his shoulders are pinned to the mat for a count of three, if he is knocked out for a count of 10, or when his corner concedes he is hurt too badly to continue. The equipment also is free choice. The fighters may wear boxing shorts or wrestling tights; boxing shoes or bare feet: four-ounce boxing gloves or karate protective gloves or any reasonable modification of that gear. Or they may fight bare fisted. Baltimore (Holtzman 3-2) at DOUBLES-Madlock, Chi. 14; Detroit [Colerran 2-3). (n) zisk. Pgh. 14; Monlanez.
