(Daily Globe Photo) Aaron Powers Braves to Win; Spahn Fails in Giants' Debut By MIKE RATHET Associated Press Sports Writer If Hank Aaron ever decides to get in step with the rest of the, world the Milwaukee Braves are in trouble. Putting his wrong foot forward as usual and playing despite an upset stomach, Aaron hammered his fourth homer in as many games as the Braves stretched their winning streak to 10 by whipping the starter Dave Guilbault on t h e mound for the Lake of the Clouds, in the second inning, held the Ironwood team in check for the remainder of the game' and gave up only one single after the second frame. Ironwood loaded the bases in the final inning on two bases on balls and an errorj but were unable to score. Norm Backon went the distance on the mound for the Ironwood nine. Despite being tagged for at least one hit in every inning, but the second, Backon held the Lake of the Clouds batters in check. Backon gave up six hits, including doubles to Dave Guilbault and Mickey McGuire. He got four batters on strikes and issued two free passes to first base. Guilbault, the starter on the mound for the Lake of the Clouds team, was charged with all seven Ironwood runs, while giving up only three hits. His mates committed five errors behind him. Guilbault struck out two. John Polich, who relieved Guilbault on the mound in the second inning, gave up only two hits and got three I r o n- wood batters on strikes. Waiko Spetz got the only extra base hit for the winning Ironwood team, a double in the opening inning. Bob Jacquart and Rod Tafelski were the only Ironw o o d batters able to garner more than one base hit, while John Polich netted two singles for the Lake of the Clouds nine. Wakefield's Bob B r uno and Bessemer's Donald Kangas, hooked up in a terrific pitcher's battle in the days' se c o n d semi-final contest, which Wakefield won by a 1-0 score. Ironically, it was pitcher Bruno, who also scored the lone run of the contest Bruno reached first base on an error on the second baseman and advancd to second and third on passed balls and scored when the catcher attempted to pick him off as he advanced from second to third base. Bruno was brilliant on t h e mound in his no-hit, no-run performance. He got 12 Bessemer batters on strikes and iss u e d two bases on balls. Bessemer's lone threat of the contest came in the third stanza. Bruce Rampanelli drew a base o n balls, advanced to second on a wild pitch and moved to third on a infield out, Rampanelli remained on third on an infield out,. Bessemer's only other base runner was Don Kangas, who drew a walk in the open ing inning. Wakefield threatened in t h e opening innings when Na t h a n Seppa singled and advanced to third base on t w o straight passed balls, but remained there when the next batter struck out. Dan Junttila singled in the second inning and movec to third on an error and passed ball. .He left stranded when the final batter again struck out. Don Kangas was effective on the mound for Bessemer, giv ing up only two hits, both singles, getting eight Wakefield batters on strikes, and walking one but two costly errors in the final frame decided this tightly played contest. Bruno struck out the side in the second and fifth innings and got another pair of strike outs in each of the first and fourth frames. Both pitchers received good support from their mates, with both teams .coming up with good plays. The outstandi n g catches of the game were madi by Dale Gerbig, who made a brilliant one-hand grab on a long Jerry Koivu fly near the left field fence and Mike Dan iels made a beautiful running catch on a Tom Selin fly t o center field to protect Bruno's no-hit performance. National League leading Los Angeles Dodgers 5-2 Thursday night. Aaron, who was forced out of the game in the seventh inning, has been Mr. Consistent for the Braves during their streak, hitting safely in nine out of the 10 games for a .412 batting average with the four homers and 11 runs batted in. And the 31-year-old right- handad slugger, who went into the season with a .320 lifetime average, still hits all wrong. * * * Billy Herman, currently managing Boston but once a coach with the Braves, probably explained Aaron's manipulations at the plate best. 'He hits off his front foot and still gets so much power," Herman said. "That's against all rules of batting. But although he hits all wrong, he still manages to generate all that power, be cause even when he overstrides his body and arms remain back." Aaron actually provided the only runs the Braves needed against the Dodgers, tagging a three-run homer in the first in ning off Bob Miller after singles by Felipe Alou and Mack ones Rico Carty also hit a homer in Modern Precise WHEEL BALANCING -A-RUST PROOFING & UNDERCOATING SERVICE *Hi-Quality Spray Glow (high but*r, loqjj luting) WE GIVE GOLD BOND STAMPS JACQUART'S 'SERVICE 1 fellc.

Campbell reports that, except for a few "bugs", the major league's first baseball draft has worked out well.

"Even some of the teams which were a little leary about the draft in the first place are liking it more and more," Campbell added. While reluctant to discuss figures and bonuses, Campbell Implied that the draft situation has more than under the old system were everyone would bid for a young player's services. "We drafted 41 players and nave already signed 17 of them," Campbell said. * * * "Six or seven others have decided to go to college and there are nine or 10 who are playing Legion ball and can't be signed until their seasons are over. We are negotiating with all of the others," Campbell concluded. The Tigers G.M. added that, for the most part, the top choices by the team have been "very reasonable" with regard to bonus money demands. "Some of the lower choices are looking for more than we think they are worth and are asking for bonuses in excess of what we would give them even under the old set-up. But we are still talking," he said. Campbell pointed out that the Tigers have made a number o deals with players already signed to help them through school. "They'll play baseball for us in the summer, then take a semester or two in college in the off-season," he said. "We have encouraged this and everyone seems to be happy.

(Daily Globe Photo) Dodgers-Senators Player Swap Turns Out to Be Good Trade By BOB GREEN Associated Press Sports Writer A good trade, says an old baseball axiom, is on that maks everyone happy. Therefore, the multiple player swap between the Los Angeles Dodgers and Washington Sena;ors Dec. 4 was a good trade. The Dodgers, who got Claude Dsteen and Jack Kennedy, are nappy. They have to be. They're leading the National League. And the Senators are tickled Ashland Sets Tennis Meet ASHLAND — More than two dozen players from the are; have been asked to play in the Ashland Tennis Club Invitational tournament here beginning Sunday.

While invitations have gone to players in the immediate Ashland area, entries from ironwood, Wakefield, Bessemer and the surrounding area will be accepted. There will be no admission charge, according t o George Schmidt, Northland College tennis coach and tourney director. Joe Maliszewski is tournament secretary in charge of entries He will accept doubles entries until Monday noon. lier decided to go wanted to go full added. Another phase of the program which could cost the Tigers a little more money—but should reap rewards in the future—is the incentive program. "We have agreements with some players which state that f they improve enough to move up in class in the minors, we will pay them a bonus. * * * "If we assign a player to an A league and he improves enough to merit a promotion to AA, he gets a bonus for his efforts. We, and the rest of the teams see nothing wrong with this," he said. The Tigers entered into a cooperative scouting agreement with Cleveland, Milwaukee and Pittsburgh. Th general information exchanged was good, Campbel? said. A number of other clubs are now working to pool their scouting reports on the young players. Campbell added that the Detroit study of all players drafted by the 20 major league teams shows 52 per cent of them were in the 17-18 age group, or just out of high school. Another 16 per cent were 19 years old. Each team has six months in which to sign a player it ha; drafted. If it does not sign the player, it loses its rights to negotiate with him and his name is returned to the poll, to be selected by another team, if desired.

"Certainly I'm serious about it," U.S Open champ Gary Player said after shooting a first round 69 Thursday and taking a one-stroke lead over amateur Bill Campbell of Huntington, W Va. "Wouldn't you be serious for 20,000?", he asked. The winner of the four-day match ending Sunday gets 20,000, second-place pro wins 17,000 and third-place pro receives 13,000. Arnold Palmer shot a 71 over the 6.834-yard par 35-36—71 Lakewood Country Club course while Jack Nicklaus came in with a 72 to tie amateur Deane Beman. Del Morey of High Point, N.C., the third amateur bogeyed three of the first four holes and shot 74. "I'm serious about it because 1 need the competition," Palmer said. "And none of us like to lose. We always try to beat each other no matter what we're playing in." "Sure I want to win," Nicklaus echoed after a round in which he shot only one birdie and two bogeys. help — in leading the Senators to a 5-1 victory over the Los Angeles Angels Thursday. Minnesota's rampaging Twins bombed Boston 11-5 for their fifth victory in six starts, New York trimmed Chicago 3-1 and Kansas City blasted Baltimore 9-2 in the only other American League games played. Detroit and Cleveland were not scheduled. Richert's two-run single in the second inning broke a 25-inning scoreless string for the Senators and was all he needed for the victory, but he added another RBI on a bunt single in the sixth. And while the Senators were basking in the rarified atmosphere of their relatively high position, the Twins again called on Harmon Killebrew, Bob Allison and Tony Oliva for the heavy duty to complete a sweep against Boston. Allison drove in five runs with his 13th and 14th homers, Oliva had three runs batted in with single and double and Killebrew's 19th homer and a single accounted for two more. Boston's Carl Yastrzemski had a double, triple and homer and raised his league-leading average to .345. Ken Harrelson and Bill Bryan each hod a two-run homer among their three hits in Kansas City's rout of Baltimore.
