&Wil*<S&*SS»8W^fefc*v^^ American League. Who Are These Fellows? By MIKE RATHET Associated Press Sports Writer The Cleveland Indians, with an assist from the Canadian Air Force and plan 5BX, are away winging, winning their opener with a four-homer salvo as the American League baseball season began to run full throttle. Using "ballplayers nobody ever heard of," the Indians belted 20- game winner Camilo Pascual solidly Tuesday for a 5-4 opening day victory over Minnesota that had new Manager Birdie Tebbetts chirping. Tebbetts borrowed the 11-minute calisthenic program labeled plan 5BX by the Canadian Air Force, and instituted, it in spring training to get the Indians prepared for a quick getaway. There's no doubt his nobodies got away quick. The nobodies included Jim Grant, who pitched a seven-hitter, and homer hitters Woodie Held, John Romano, rookie Max Alvis and newly acquired Fred Whitfield. Said Tebbetts in somewhat of a challenge: "Cleveland has some ballplayers, but nobody ever heard of them. They will." Joe Pepitone made himself heard for the New York Yankees, cracking two homers and a double in support of Ralph Terry's six-hit pitching as the world -champions got. started with an 8-2 triumph at Kansas City. In other American League openers, the Chicago White Sox edged Detroit 7-5 behind newly acquirer Pete Ward and Hoyt Wilhelm and the Los Angeles Angels defeatec Boston 4-1 behind Ken McBride's four-hitter. Baltimore and Wash ngton, who opened Monday were not scheduled. The Indians' first three runs came on solo homers by Romano in the second inning and Whitfield and Alvis in the fourth. Then, in lie seventh with the score tied 3-3, Alvis led off with a double and Held crashed a 415-foot homer that put the game out of the Twins' reach. Grant was touched Tor solo homers by Lenny Green and Vic Power. Pepitone's slugging paved the way for Terry, who received 13- tiit support against a Kansas City team that seemed to have little going for it besides beautiful, tradition-breaking green and gold uniforms. Elston Howard also homered for the Yankees, tagging loser Diego Segui with one on in the fourth. Rookie Bill Bryan and newcomer Chuck Essegian connected for the A's. Ward lined a three-run homer in the seventh inning off loser Jim Burning, wiping out a 5-4 Detroit lead and Wilhelm came on and retired the last nine men in a row to protect Frank Baumann's victory. Both Ward and Wilhelm were acquired by the White Sox in an off-season trade with Baltimore. Gus Triandos, also acquired from the Orioles, homered for the Tigers. The Angels wrapped it up against Red Sox starter Bill Mon- bouquette with a four-run fifth inning uprising capped by Lee Thomas' three-run homer. The first run came across when Jim Fregosi reached second on a two- base throwing error by Ed Bressoud and eventually scored on Billy Moran's single. Carl Yas- trzemski's homer in the seventh broke up McBride's shutout bid.

The lake, which will have approximately 180 acres of water when full, is located .1% miles north and one mile east of Baldwin.

Under federal -aid, the Commission will be reimbursed 75 per cent of the cost of the lake. Stocking will begin as soon as there is sufficient water to maintain fish. If this occurs within the next few weeks, it will be stocked this spring. If there is not enough water, then stocking will be, delayed until such time as the water is sufficient and fish are available. Access to the area is all but closed to protect seeding and other general improvements. Sightseers may view the site from the new road on the west side of the lake.
