Hawks Drop Campus HAYSVILLE - Hutchinson high school's Salt Hawks defeated the Campus Colts, 28-6 here Friday night, for their fourth victory against a single loss this season. It was a frustrating evening Hawk Harriers Second WICHITA - Hutchinson was a strong second behind champion Wichita South Friday in Class A competition at the 10 - team Wichita Heights Invi tational Cross Country meet. South won the meet with « points, while the Salt Hawks copped second place with 67 tallies. Wichita Southeast was third with 80, followed by West with 93, East 95, Heights 138, North 149, Campus 188, and Kapaun - Mt. Carmel 196. Tom Honer of Wichita West won individual honors with a 9:43.0 clocking. Jim Gifford of South was second and Roger Caldwell of Hutch third. Others in the top eight were Kent Adrian, Southeast, Jerry Smith, Southeast, Gene Pemberton, East, Ted Crank, Hutchinson and Joe Gimar, Hutchinson. Larry Achilles of Hutchinson finished 21st, Terry George 28th and Craig Hodges, 33rd. There were 58 runners in Class A. In Class B, Hutchinson finished fifth, with Mike Everett's 18th place showing the best individual performance by a Salt Hawk. Ed Almanza was 20th, Bruce Freeman 22nd, Robert Calhoun 23rd, Craig Bircher 36th and John Teeter 55th. Li Class C competition, Hutchinson turned in another good showing with a third- place team finish. With 64 runners entered, Doug Hawkins finished 18th, Robert Deming 19th, Tim Frye 22th . Bob Tatro 33rd, Bob Stivers 43rd, Mi AHea 49th and Mike Wilk 52nd. The next meet for the Hawks will be Thursday, when they travel to Wellington for Ark Valley League competition. Coach Dennis Vierthaler feels the Hawks have as good a chance as anybody to cart off the title. Narrowing the field of possible titlists, he added, "There should be a fight between us, El Dorado (defending chamion), Wellington and Derby." The Hawks have not won the AVL harrier title in Vierthaler's five years at the helm. for the Hawks, who once failed to score when they had the ball at the Campus one - foot line, who had one touchdown nullifed by penalty, and numerous drives stalled by penalties, fumbles, busted plays „ and sharp Campus tackles. But it had to be triply frustrating for Campus. ' The Hawks gave Campus a touchdown early in the game —presenting the ball in the end zone for a Campus recovery and a six point lead. But those who gave also took- away, and by halftime Hutchinson was leading 21-6 the final Hawk touchdown coming in tne last 20 seconds b fore the halftime. And then just when it appeared Hutchinson wou settle for a 21-6 triumph, having the ball near mid - field with only 25 seconds remaining in the game Quarterback Doug Baar flipped a pass to Kelvin O'Brien that went for 42 yards and a touchdown. But the red Hag throwers said 'NO!" Hutchinson had been guilty of illegal procedure. Instead of a touch­ down, Hutchinson drew a five yard penalty. Campus fans breathed a sigh of relief. It was a brief sigh. As if to say: "Didn't like that one, huh? Look at this!", Baar faded back and this time hit O'Brien on a dead run near the 10 yard line and O'Brien scampered on in to score. Tigers Tail Cards ST. JOHN - St. John handed Hoisington its fifth-straight defeat this season, 23-12, in a Central Prairie League football clash here Friday night. Fisher scored two Tiger touchdowns and Comwell raced 57 yards to a third St. John TD. Atkinson added a 33-yard field goal and Schultz kicked two extra points. McMillin hit Rothwiler with a three-yard touchdown pass and Stouth with a nine-yard TD aerial to represent Hoisington's scoring.

Lions Drop Vikes LINDSBORG — Lyons' Lions won their third straight football game here Friday night, scoring 13 points in the third period to register a 13-0 tri umph over Lindsborg's Vikings in a Central Prairie League clash. David Huffman capped a 69- yard Lion drive with a nine- yard touchdown run and Lyons scored again on a blocked punt. Twice, Lindsborg was inside the Lions' 10-yard line before the visitors' defense stiffened to stall the drive. Lindsborg's Justin Clark was injured in the game, and may not see action next week against Ellinwood.

Half of the Hutchinson points against Campus were scored with the scoreboard clock about to give its dying gasp. Both teams lost good defensive hands in the final period. Mike Rock, defensive end and an outstanding play stopper for Campus and Hutchinson's Robert Thompson, another standout, had been thwarting each other all through t h e game and finally it led to fist throwing, both were tossed out. Thompson's pre - departure play, however, still made h i m one of the Hawks' defensive stars for this game, along with Don Grosshardt, Brad Wood, who recovered two fumles and intercepted a pass; Mike Franko who made some fine tackles, and Rod Rayl and Kevin Mullen who joined Wood in the gallery of pass thieves Scott Butte'rfield carried 17 times for 89 yards and upped his AVL lead to 362 yards on 70 carries. Mike Franko carried seven times for 54 yards O'Brien caught three passes for 64 yards and two touchdowns and Scott Willett caught three for 54 yards.

South African Picadilly Finale Pairs Jack, Gary VIRGINIA WATER, England (AP) -r- America's Jack Nicklaus and South Africa's Gary Player,, two golf giants, slammed their way into the final of "the Picadilly world match play championship Friday. Nicklaus, who will be bidding for his second straight match play title Saturday over the 6,997-yard, par-74 Wentworth course, thrashed England's Neil Coles 7 and 5 in one 36-hole semifinal. Player, a three-time winner of this unique $60,000 tournament matching eight top stars in face-to-face matches, eliminated New Zealand's Bob Charles 2 and 1 in the other. Player Won In '66 Nicklaus and Player met in the 1966 title match, won by Player 6 and 4. But Nicklaus is the heavy favorite this year to collect the top prize of $20,400. Nicklaus, top money winner on the world circuit this year with $207,080, started the day's play as a 6-4 betting favorite. Player was listed by the London oddsmakers at 5-2. Nicklaus' putting worries in his match against Coles, a British Ryder Cup star, were unfounded. Two massive putts of 45 feet and 33 feet at the eighth and ninth holes gave him a 2-up lead, and he delivered what turned out to be a death blow by winning six of eight holes form the 15th to the 22nd. On the 17th Nicklaus struck two mighty three-woods and rolled in a 12-foot putt for an eagle three. "I began playing semi-sloppy, trying to finish it," Nicklaus said of being 8-up at the 22nd— and the balding Englishman won the next three. Nicklaus then focused his concentration and moved ma­ jestically to 7-up with seven to play. At the 437-yard 31st, Coles was short of the green in three and picked up his ball to concede the match, "Jack is quite simply the very . best player there is," Coles said afterwards. "He's too strong for most of us. Those drives ... They are out of this world." sent ths United States into a 1-0 lead over Romania Friday but the cliff-hanging second match between Frank Froehling III of Fort Lauderdale, Fla., and Ion Tiriac was halted by darkness with the score 6-6 in the fifth set of the 1971 Davis Cup Challenge round. The dramatic second singles match will be completed at 1 p.m. EDT Saturday, just before the doubles match sending Smith and 20-year-old Erik Van Dillen of San Mateo, Calif., against Tiriac and Hie Nastase. Smith, the reigning U.S. Open champion and runnerup at Wimbledon, crushed Nastase, Romania's No. 1 ace, with unexpected ease 7-5, 6-3, 6-1. Then Froehling, called "the Spider" because of the arms and legs which dangle from his 6-foot-5 frame, fought back from what seemed sure to be disaster to throw his match against the sinister-looking Ri- riac into darkness. He appeared a certain loser after dropping the first two sets 3-6, 1-6, but stormed back with his awkward, roundhouse forehand and smashing overheads to take the next two 6-1, 6-3 from the bushy bear from Brasov. Froehling served at 5-3 after a service break in the sixth game and had match point, but missed the sidelines by a scant one-half inch with a slashing forehand.

Murtaugh's insistence on maintaining his policy left major question-marks after the names of two of the heroes of the Pirates' playoff victory over San Francisco—third baseman Rich Hebner and outfielder Al Oliver. And their ultimate fate won't be known to an anticipated capacity crowd of 52,137 and a na- t i o n a 1 television audience watching via NBC until just before the noon, CDT, starting time Saturday of the opener of the best-of-seven series. Ellis Confirmed Murtaugh did confirm that right-hander Dock Ellis would start for the Pirates against left-hander Dave McNally. And, he emphasized that his refusal to announce a starting lineup should in no way be taken as an attempt to get an edge on the Orioles. "There's no reason to try and get an edge on this team," the d i g a r-chomping Murtaugh pointed out. "I pick out my lineup by the way I feel that morning. There's nothing scientific about it. Sometimes I platoon, sometimes I don't. "But I wouldn't call it hunches—it's just feelings." Then, noting some smiles among his listeners, Murtaugh seemed to stiffen. "Don't make fun of me because of how I make my lineup," he said sharply. "I know it's against Series custom but I'm sticking to my custom." Following customs means that there will be no word on whether lefty hitters Hebner and Oliver or righty swingers Jose Pagan and Gene Clines will be on Murtaugh's lineup card when he submits it to the umpires Saturday. Names Hurlers But while maintaining his position on the starters, Murtaugh did name two other right-hand­ ers—Bob Johnson and Steve Blass—to pitch the second and third after Ellis opens. As for Ellis, who has been bothered by a sore elbow, Murtaugh said: "Ellis saffl he's all right— that's good enough for me." Ellis said a lot more before the Pirates finished working out, including challenging the controversial label that has been slapped on him. "I don't pop off," he insisted heatedly. "I see something I don't like I say it. If you can't say what you want in this so- called America I might as well go to Russia. "People keep saying all I'm achieving with my arm I'm destroying with my mouth. But I don't believe that." Ellis will get his opportunity to prove whether his arm is as sharp as his words against a Baltimore lineup that Orioles' Manager Earl Weaver maintains has more home run power throughout than the Pirates. Can't Match Stargell "We can't match Willie Stargell," said Weaver, acknowledging the superiority of the Series Schedule By The Associated Press All time* COT Saturday Pittsburgh at Baltimore, noon.

Weaver's statistical evidence showed the Orioles with seven players who have hit more than 10 homers to five for the Pirates. Boog Powell, the big first baseman, skipped batting practice for the second straight day, the back of his right hand heavily bandaged. But Weaver said despite the torn muscle fibers Powell would be in the starting lineup. "He's definitely playing," said Weaver. "He may have to come out, but he's starting." If Powell has to come out, Weaver likely will bring Frank Robinson in from the outfield to play first. Weaver's opening lineup has Robinson, Don Buford and Merv Rettenmund in the outfield, leaving Paul Blair on the bench and ready for action should some juggling have to be done to accommodate Powell's condition. Blair led the Orioles in hitting during the 1970 World Series with a .474 average. Despite Powell's questionable physical condition, Las Vegas oddsmakers have established the Orioles as 8-5 favorites to win their second straight series drive to satisfy their dynastic aspirations. Birds 9-5 Favorite The Orioles also were established as 9-5 favorites to win the opener behind McNally, 21-5 during the regular season as compared to 19-9 for Ellis. The Orioles, who deefated Cincinnati in five games last year, head into the Series with a winning streak that is a carbon copy of the one they took into the 1970 series—11 victories at the end of the regular season and three successive playoff victories. They also will have three other 20-game winners at their disposal, second game starter Jim Palmer, , third-game nominee Mike Cuellar and Pat Dobson, who will start the series in the bullpen but could be Weaver's fourth game choice. The Pirates, meanwhile, refuse to accept the estimate that the Orioles are a superior team and point to the I960 World Series, their last, when they defeated the New York Yankees in seven games. Ellis is one of the Pirates who doesn't buy the opinion the Orioles are superior. In his manner, he said frankly- "They're no better than us." Wins, 60-6 SYLVAN GROVE - Little River's undefeated, No. 1 rated Class 1-A Redskins buried Sylvan Grove, 60-6, in a Quivira League football encounter here Friday night.
