, Jun» ». ItTi Th» D««Y tour Ufc*, KaJUpa*. man in motion by george geise sports editor Twins still unbeaten in Legion baseball Ju$t a reminder In the seven mootki rinee I arrived at tills sports detfc I haw enjoyed many aspects of my association with the sports-minded people of Western Montana. Quite possibly the most enjoyable part of my lob has been the exceptional cooperation which coaches, athletic directors and dub officials have extended to me and toe Inter Late staff. With a newspaper of our moderate size, it's obvious that we don't have the staff capabilities to personally cover even a fraction of the many events which take place ia the Flathead Valley and surrounding areas. As you probably realize, I try to see as many events as possible but even the New York Times staff can't cover every game, every city, every day. So like most other papers we rely on people to provide us with the scores and details of contests which we personally cannot attend. That way the readers get the news they want and deserve, and the teams involved receive prompt publicity which I feel helps the momentum and continuity 'of their programs. However, since the school sports season ended a few weeks ago, there has been somewhat of a breakdown in communications between the suppliers -- you -- and the receiver -- me -- of local sports information specifically referring to the variety of baseball and Softball reports which we try to publish daily. Each day I inevitably receive a telephone call from some mother or father wondering why junior's PeeWee or Babe Ruth baseball results weren't published in the afternoon paper. Or I'll take "static" from one of my softball-playing friends who want to know why the golf results always make the paper, but only a fraction of the Softball scores are reported. The answer, of course, is simple. I can't publish the results If the coaches and managers of the respective teams don't supply the information. It's possible, although unlikely, that some coaches don't know the Inter Lake's policy on reporting results of ballgames. We require that the winning team turn in scores and highlights of the games to the office before 9 a.m. the day following the game. It's a little hard to justify publishing Monday's scores on Thursday when their news value has depleted, The Inter Lake has distributed more than 500 game report forms to coaches already this spring, and we have more available at the office if you exhaust your supply. Be sure to fill in all the necessary information, including the correct spellings, first and last names, of the players who were involved in the game's highlights. I'm confident this reminder will be sufficient to reestablish our lines of communication for the remainder of the summer season. KELLOGG, Idaho - The streaking Glacier Twins successfully started their three-game Idaho road trip here Tuesday night with an 8-3 triumph over a Kellogg-Wallace American Legion baseball team. Starting pitcher Drew Uecker and reliever Mike Heis combined to stymie the Idaho bats on five hits, while striking out 13 batters in the nine-inning tilt. The victory boosted the Twins' season record to 4-0, but it was the first time this summer the Glacier club has had to rally to win. Down 2-0 after the first inning, the Twins tied it with single runs in the fourth and fifth innings, then won going away with three runs in each of the sixth and seventh frames. Heis was the beneficiary of the hot hitting late in the game as he won his second contest of the season. Heis, who took over for Uecker in the fifth inning, fanned eight of the 14 men he sent back to the dugout, allowing just one hit and an unearned run. Uecker was equally tough In Us 4% innings, striking out five and isMing no walks. "I was really pleased with our pitching," commented Twins' mentor Gerry Hall. "I didn't think the kids were that far advanced but they've been working hard and the effort is paying off." The hitting wasn't too bad, either, especially the batting of leadoff man Greg Dvorak who went J-for-4 with two runs batted in: Tim Moir, Steve Carlson, Bryan McMillan and Tim Bissel each had at least one hit and a run batted in. The Twins resume their trip tonight by facing Coeur d'Aleae in the Lake City. The Whltefish- Columbla Falls club visits Sandpolnt Thursday night before returning to Whitefish to play Cut bank Friday night at 7:30.

Scoreboard BILLINGS - "We're playing pretty good ball, but a young team sometimes finds its own ways to lose," reported Kalispell Lakers coach Rick Smith after his team blew a 10-9 decision to the powerful Billings Royals American Legion baseball club here Tuesday night. The margin of the Royals' victory was attributed to one factor-- the wildness of the Kalispell pitchers. Gordie Lobdeli and reliever Darrell Zauner yielded 12 walks and six of those runners scored. Lobdeli, a mainstay of the staff last summer with a 9-2 record, gave up nine walks in less than six innings before departing in favor of Zauner. The surprising Lakers rapped out 13 base hits and collected five walks from the Billings hurlers, but the club still left ID men on base. The Lakers roared out to leads of 2-fl and 6-1, then stretched the advan- tage to 9-5 with three more runs in the Fifth. Billings came back to tie the score with three in the sixth and one in the seventh, before scoring the deciding run in the bottom of the eighth inning. Zauner was charged with the loss, his first of the season, although he gave up only one earned run in almost three innings, Young players like Randy Shelton, Dave Stoick and Dave Holliday combined for nine of the Lakers' base hits. Shelton, 16, drilled four line drive singles while Stoick, just 15, had three hits to boost his season average to .409. Holliday continued to reach base often as he walked twice and had two singles. Veteran Steve Howard raised his average to .367 with a single and double and K.C. Johnson kept his average up with two base bits.

BALTIMORE ( A P ) - T h e Baltimore Orioles have lost eight of their last 10 games, and they may also lose injured and slumping slugger Reggie Jackson for an extended period.

The Lakers face the Royals again tonight with Bill Nice throwing for Kalispell. Randy Bostic will pitch Thursday as the Lakers play the Billings Scarlets. The Laken dropped their record to 3-5 Tuesday while the Royals remained unbeaten at 6-0.

Here's how it works: If you join Budget Billing now you can have your yearly utility costs from Montana Power averaged- into twelve equal payments. By averaging low summer bills with high winter bills, you cut high winter utility costs.
