Indians win 7-5 at Met Hendrick hammers Twins By BRENT KALLESTAD AP Sports Writer BI.OOMINGTON, Minn. (AP) - The silenl man of the Cleveland Indians makes a Io( of noise in Minnesota, but it's all with the bat. Big George Hendrick, who has always hit well in Minnesota's Metopolitan Stadium, slammed his first two home runs of Die season Tuesday to lead Cleveland lo a 7-5 victory over Ihe Twins. "Sure I was glad to see him (Hendrick) get started," said Indians Manager Frank Robinson. "I can't say I was worried though, it's early yet and you know hitters like George are going to hit" George started hitting, but he's still not talking. "You saw it man," said Hendrick, who is normally as silent as his bat was the first month of the season. "What more can I tell you." The lanky, Woot-3 Hendrick came into the game with a .189 baiting average and no home runs, but he and the rest of the Indians had little trouble with Minnesota's Dave Gtltz. "I'm not concerned about people who have had success," Boundary canoe fund plan okayed WASHINGTON (AP) - The Senate passed without objection on Tuesday a bill to authorize the Agriculture Department to spend up to (4.5 million to buy more lands for the Boundary Waters Canoe Area in Northeastern Minnesota, the largest unit of the National Wilderness Preservation System. The measure was sent to the House for action. It also would allow the federal government lo complete payment of a judgment against it during condemnation proceedings that the property owners took to court. The previous J4.5 million authorized for land purchases there was within J253.13 of running out July 11,1974, when the department still owed $16,717.03 on a $38,000 judgment awarded Jacob and James Pete, Ihe bill's sponsors said. Minnesota Sens. Hubert H. Humphrey and Waller F. Mondale, both Democrats, introduced the measure. USDA said it would use the funds to acquire 7,534 acres in the area still in private hands and 14,085 acres of formerly private lands that have been forfeited to county governments for nonpayment of taies. The canoe area, part of the Superior National Forest, contains many lakes and streams either linked together or close enough 'to provide excellent opportunities for canoe travel," USDA said. The canoe area, in which Congress First moved in 1830 to preserve the natural waterways' shorelines, now contains 1.03 million acres. It became part of the wilderness system in 1968 when the legislation was enacted. FFCC girls win twice in softball BRAINERD — The Fergus Falls Community College girls softball team earned two victories, defeating Northland 174 and Itasca 1M, before bowing to Brainerd in a heartbreaker 8-7 Tuesday. Ruth Runyan was the winning pitcher in the first game and Cindy Ostrander hurled the second Spartan victory. In the two wins the Spartan gals banged out 35 hits. Kris Moen only allowed five hits in her pitching loss to Brainerd but the Spartan defense fell apart committing seven errors. North inks A's contract OAKLAND, Calif. (AP) Center fielder Bill North has signed a two-year contract with the Oakland A's, leaving seven regulars on the baseball club still unsigned. Charles 0. Finley, owner of the club, announced North's signing Tuesday from Chicago but did not disclose the salary'. Yet to come to lerms are pitchers Vida Blue and RoMie Fingers, catcher Gene Tenace, outfielder Joe Rudi and in- fieMersSal Bando, Don Baylor and Bert Campar.eris. Finley mewed their contracts automatically with 20 per cent cuts. The additional land is needed, the Senate was lo!d, because it is "vulnerable to forms of use and development which could impair the unique qualities and natural features of the Canoe Area." NDSU Vets Club holds fight card The Veterans Chib at North Dakota State University is sponsoring a Golden Gloves amateur boxing program Friday April X at the NDSU Old Fieldhouse at B p.m. There will be three main events on the 12 bout card.

"He (GoKz) has proven he can pitch and win in the American League and I'm staying right with him." The Indians finished off Goltz, now 0-2, with a three-run seventh while Minnesota hitters had no success against Cleveland relievers Jackie Brown and Dave LaRocne. Brown did a brilliant job shutting off a Minnesota threat in the fourth en route to picking up his first victory of the year. The veteran right-handed replaced Jim Bibby with two runs in and then struck out Steve Braun and rookie Butch Wynegar with the bases loaded. "I had a real good curve ball," said Brown, who came to Cleveland last year from Texas along withBibby in the Gaylord Perry trade. "Braun has always been tough on me and 1 was glad to get by him," said Brown, who stopped the Twins on three sin- *** gles for 3 and 2-3 innings. Larry Hisle ted a 13-hit Minnesota attack with two singles, a double and two runs batted in to boost his average to .230 and raise his club-leading rbi total to eight Rick Manning also drove in a pair of runs for the Indians and joined rookie Doug Howard with two hits. Robinson, who was just activated as a player for his 21st season, scheduled Dennis Eckersley, 1-2, to meet Minnesota's Bert Blyleven, 1-1, Wednesday.

Canadiens, Bruins win in NHL By FRANK BROWN AP Sports Writer It had been a long time since the Montreal Canadiens had played the New York Islanders — 59 games and five months to be exact. But it didn't seem to matter, as the two closely- matched National Hockey league teams picked up where they left off Nov. 30 and played a tooth-and-nail semifinal playoff game with the Canadiens winning 3-2 Tuesday night. H had been a long time since the Philadelphia Flyers had lost at home — 25 games and four months to be exact. But it didn't seem to matter lo the Boston Bruins, the last learn to beat the defending Stanley Cup champion in their Spectrum home last Dec. 28. Boston turned the trick again Tuesday- night, upending the Flyers 4-2 in their semifinal opener. In the World Hockey Association, Indianapolis tripped New England 5-3 lo tie their best-of- seven United States semifinal series at three victories apiece, and San Diego ended Houston's 13-game playoff winning streak with a 3-2 triumph over the Aeros in the other U.S. semifinal. Indeed, it had been a long time since the Canadiens played anybody -- having drawn a bye into the playoff quarter-finals, then sweeping past the Chicago Black Hawks in four games, then waiting nine days to see who they'd play next. Despite some obvious rustiness, the Canadiens proved too much for the Islanders, rallying twice from one-goal deficits to a-ore a 3-2 triumph in the series opener on goals just 1:40 apart by Larry Robinson and Yvan ciwrnoyer late in the third period. New York defensive star Denis Potvin set up both Islanders goals, which were scored by Ed Westfall and Bill MacMUlan. Having lost at home, the Flyers face another problem with streaks against Boston — namely, the series shifts there after Thursday's second game in Philadelphia. The Flyers have won there only twice since they entered the league in 1967 — once in playoffs — and have absorbed 18 losses and four ties in Boston Garden in the last 22 games. That didn't seem to matter much to the Bruins, who got goals from two of their poorest marksmen—defensemen Gary Doak and Dallas Smith - along with Ken Hodge and Gregg Sheppard. "It doesn't mean the series is over," said Boston defenseman Brad Park. "They're a great dub. They will come back with fire in their eyes." Orest Kindrachuk and Reg Leach scored for Ihe Flyers. Racers S, Whalers 3 Goals by Renald Lederc and Dave Keen late in the second period brought Indianapolis into position to make WHA history. No WHA team ever has come back from a 1-3 deficit in games to win a playoff series, but the Racers can accomplish the feat by winning Game Seven Thursday night at Indianapolis. Mariners 3, Aeros 2 Rookie center Bob Dobek broke a 1-1 tie with his first goal of the playoffs to lead San Diego's victory over Houston and keep the Mariners' playoff hopes alive. The triumph cut the Aeros' series lead to 3-1 and ended the longest piayoff winning streak in pro hockey history at 13 games. Hillcrest student achievements in athletics and debate were acknowledged last night at a banquet held in the HUIcrest gymnasium, with 250 in attendance. Mark Levang, former-athlete at Hillcrest Academy, was the master of ceremonies. "Oats" LeGrand, athletic director at the Fergus Falls _ ... . Junior High School, was the RaUI PfC Win featuredTpeaker. LeGrand, MUWI» Will who has followed the athletic program of Hillcrest quite closely, thanked Bill Colbeck, the school's principal and head basketball coach, for giving him the opportunity of becoming acquainted with Hillcrest.

MAY LAWN & GARDEN DAYS Robinson, Belanger hit Orioles to 3-2 win By KEN KAPPOPORT AP Sports Writer Brooks Robinson and Mark Belanger. a pair of "good-field, no-hit" ballplayers, drove the California Angels batty. First the anemic Robinson broke up Nolan Ryan's bid for a no-hitler and then the light- hitting Belanger broke up the ballgame — and Ihe result was a 3-2,10-inning victory for the Baltimore Orioles Tuesday, night. "I don't have many game- winning hits." said Belanger. whose bases-loaded single in the IMh knocked in the wir.niny run. "In (en yoars, I've had two, maybe one." The game-winning hit came off an "up and in hummer" from reliever Dkk Drago. "He stmcfc rr.e out on a ball up there last time and I was looking for something inside," said Belanger. a .257 hitter this season. "I got it and the ball landed where nobody was." Robinson, also known more for his glove than his bat, got the first hit of the game off Ihe hard-throwing Ryan — a one- out, run-scoring triple in the seventh inning. Robinson was batting .115 al game time. Ryan, who has thrown four no-hitters in his career, had struck out II batters and walked eight before giving up Robinson's bloop triple into the left field corner that cut the California lead to 2-1. "I never gave a no-hitler a thought, the way I was throwing, " said Ryan. "I was struggling early, 1 was consistently behind the hitlers and walking a lot of them. I didn't have the kind of stuff to throw a no-hitter." In Ihe other AI. games, the Detroit Tigers routed the Oakland A's 10-2; the Cleveland Indians trimmed the Minnesota Twins 7-5 and the New York Yankees nipped the Texas Rangers 1-0. Rain and cold weather wiped out the Milwaukee-Chicago and Boston- Kansas City games. Tigers 1», A's 2 Rookie first baseman Jason Thompson collected four consecutive singles and drove in two runs and Rusty Staub hit a grand slam home run to lead Detroit over Oakland. Staub's homer, the seventh grand slam of his career, came off ace reliever Rollie Fingers to climax a five-run outburst against Fingers and Jim Todd in the eighth inning. The 21-year-oH Thompson, called up from Evansville just last Friday, singled in a run in the first inning and singled home another in the fourth against Vida Blue, 1-3. Indians 7, Twins 5 A pair of solo home runs by George Hendrick, his first homers of the season, and a strong relief performance by Jackie Brown sparked Cleveland past Minnesota. Brown, 1-0, came on in the fourth inning and pitched out of a one-out, bases-loaded jam. He struck out five while holding the Twins scoreless for 3 2-3 innings before being removed in favor of Dave LaRoche in the eighth. Yankees 1, Rangers I New York's Oscar Gamble slashed a run-scoring single to center in the top of the ninth inning to snap a tight pitching duel and the Yankees celebrated Manager Billy Martin's return to T«as with a victory over the Rangers. Dock Ellis, 20, handcuffed the Rangers with four hits before needing last-out relief help from Sparky Lyle.
