STANDINGS W L Bergland 2 o Ironwood 1 0 Bessemer 1 1 White Pine 0 1 Hurley 0 2 The Bessemer Speed Boys racked up their first win of the young Western Upper Peninsula High School Baseball League season Thursday evening as they drubbed the Hurley Midgets ll-< in a contest played at Montrea Field. The loss puts the Midgets a the bottom of the league stand ings with two straight losses and the win gives Bessemer a .500 record with one win and one loss. The Bessemer nine lost little time in showing its winning in tentions as it bounded to a six run lead in the first inning to put Hurley on the defensive end of the score. The Midgets remained score less through the first stanza and also held the Bessemer unit without a run in the top of the second and then the losers fin ally broke the scoring ice with a single run in the last of the second. Bessemer crossed the plate with a pair of runs in the top of the third and again scored a lone tally in the top of the fourth to lead Hurley 9-1. Maxinoski of the Midgets stepped to the plate and connected for a round-tripper with a Hurley runner on base in the fourth inning to bring the losers score to three. Both teams ran into scoring trouble in the fifth Inning and both went scoreless but Bessemer continued to show its scoring authority with a pair of runs in the top half of the sixth inn-- ing and the Midgets came back with one to climax the affair. Giackino was the whin i n g pitcher for Bessemer as he went all the way, giving up f o ur walks, striking out 14 and allowing four runs and four hits. Dave K o s t a c was on the mound for Hurley and was tagged with the loss as he allowed 11 runs on 13 hits and two walks and struck out six. " Syrjala and Giackino both slammed doubles for Bessemer while Erickson hit a pair of triples. Maxinoski's homer was the big blow for the losing nine. Besicmtr ABR .

The WJMS Hootenannys nipped the St. James Discs in the evening nightcap 4-2. Diane Moon came through with a fine hitting performance for Big John's as she smashed out three doubles and a home run and Carol Rahko also connected for a two-base hit for the losers of the entire Mad Kat squad. The winning pitcher was Gayle Swanbeck, who also aided her win with a double, and the loser was Rose Kuduk. The Hootenannys and the Discs battled for five innings of the second clash all tied at 1-1 until Kathy Shea hit a triple and was driven In by Darlene Palmer for the Hootenannys. Donna Korpi hit a homer for the Discs. Pat Livingston was the winning pitcher in the contest and Korpi was the loser. Next week's schedule will pit the Hootenannys against B i g John's in the first game and the Discs will tangle with the Mad Kats in the nightcap.

" WE GIVE GOLD BOND STAMPS JACQUART'S SERVICE 'Oldtimers' Come Through as Tigers Rally to Beat Bosox By BERNIE KENNEDY Associated Press Sports Writer DETROIT (AP)—The Boston Red Sox learned much to their chagrin Thursday that it takes more than holding Willie Horton hltless to beat the "Comeback Gang," better known as the Detroit Tigers. Horton, who entered the game batting .600 against the Red Sox, went hitless in four trips. But the Tigers rallied and scored four runs on homers by Dick McAuliffe, Al Kaline and Norm Cash to hand the Red Sox their seventh straight defeat, 6-5. "It sure was nice to see some of us oldtimers come through for a change," Kaline said after the Tigers had come from behind for the 19th time in 32 triumphs. Detroit extended its NFL to Consider Atlanta Proposal Associated Press Sports Writer NEW YORK (AP) — The pro football expansion war is heat ing up with the National Foot ball League meeting Monday to consider accepting Atlanta in 1966 while the American Foot ball League screens applicants for a new franchise in Philadel phia. The battle for Atlanta's new $18-million stadium centers around the reaction of the Atlan ta Stadium Authority which has set a July l deadline for a deci sion. "We would like to see them both expand because we would like to be in a position of receiv ing proposals from both leagues and see which one is best," said Arthur Montgomery, chairman of the authority in Atlanta. Montgomery said the authority could, if it wishes, change the deadline. At least three applications have been made to the NFL for an Atlanta franchise. The AFL already has granted a franchise to the Cox Broadcasting Corp for a record $7.5 million. In addition to applications for NFL franchises from groups headed by Lindsey Hopkins, Jr of Atlanta and individually by Rankin Smith, Atlanta insurance company executive, there is a bid by William G. Reynolds of Reynolds Aluminum Co., which has a major distribution center in Atlanta. Commissioner Pete Rozelle, who called the NFL meeting, had visited Atlanta last week while the AFL was' granting a franchise to the Cox company. Rozelle previously had recommended the.NFL expand from 14. to 16 teams by 1967. in Atlanr ta, he said: "We could expand with no trouble in 1966." If the NFL owners decided to go into Atlanta in 1966, the league undoubtedly would operate with 15 teams, pending addition of a 16th member in 1967. It is expected that Rozelle will get the 12- affirmative votes necessary to bring in Atlanta as a 15th team. The AFL will be starting the job of screening applicants for a Philadelphia franchise which probably would play in the new stadium to be built in that city. The NFL, of course, already has a club in Philadelphia. Aurora Beats C&M Bingo's In Ironwood Slow-Pitch Softball League action Wednesd a y night, Aurora beat C and M Bingo's 15-12. The winning pitcher was Zalewski with Lynch catching. The losing pitcher was Fertile with Vittone behind the plate. The only homers in the game were made by Borowski for Aurora and by Evsich for Bingo's. In the first inning the going looked pretty unfavorable as C&M scored five runs with Aurora left scoreless. But in the second inning Aurora pus h e d ;hree runs across the plate, closing in on Bingo's score, as Binjo's scored only one run in ;he second inning. Not until the fifth inning did Aurora open up with four runs, four more runs in the seventh and three in the eighth to make its winning score. Bingo's scored once in the fifth and got two runs in the seventh and three in the ninth Inning. C. Wangaard Wins Letter Chris Wangaard of Ironwood has received a major letter n track from Northland College bijAshland, Wis. Wangaard, a sophomore at Northland, was outstanding in he broad jump and triple jump and was named to the Pioneer College All-Conference team, winning streak to five games. Cash, who struck the game- winning blow when he homered leading off the Detroit eighth, said he wouldn't even guess when he hit his last homer. "Maybe this will get me back on the beam," the Detroit first sacker said. "It sure felt good— a high, outside fast ball—jus right for me." * * * Cash said he remembered hi last homer was hit off Don Lee of the Los Angeles Angels. The date, he was told, was April 27 The Tigers had one of thei chief tormentors — Carl Ya strzemski — to thank for thei latest success. Yastrzemski knocked in three of the Boston runs, two of them with a home run off Joe Sparma in the first inning. It was Ya strzemski's ninth home run o the season, the last five o which have come against De troit. But in the seventh inning after walking to lead off, he took off for second with Feli> Mantilla at the plate and stopped short just before reach ing the bag. He was an easj out. He had thought that Man tilla had walked. The count was really 2-and2. Mantilla singled and scored the final Boston run when Lee Thomas doubled. The Tigers were making little progress against Boston starter Jerry Stephenson until the sev enth inning. Two Boston errors gave them a run in the first inning and Jerry Lumpe followed McAu liffe's single in the fifth with a double for the second run. McAuliffe homered with one out in the seventh and Arnold Barley relieved Stephenson after he had walked Lumpe. Earl ey got Don Demeter to fly out but Kaline homered to tie the score. * * * "The other players picked up when Horton was stopped That's a sign of a good team,' an elated Manager Charlie Dressen said. The victory brought his record over the .500 mark (8-7) for the first time sine he resumed command. "I hope this will help Cash,' Dressen said. "His ankle is still bothering him and I'll keep him out against lefthanders to let the injury heal. "I don't expect him to hit .360. But he's good for a .280 average and that's all I ask,' Dressen added. Cash echoed the statement somewhat when he said he fell he had been letting the team down. "They've been doing pretty well without me," Cash observed. "But if I can start to do my part—say 25 homers and a lot of runs batted in—we're going to be a lot tougher." Terry Fox, the loser in both games of the doubleheader lasl Friday night, pitched the last two innings to win and bring his record to 4-3.

(AP Wirephoto) Dodgers Shut Out Giants 3-0 As Osteen Hurls One-Hitter .By MIKE RATHET Associated Press Sports Writer If you catch Walt Alston walking around in his underwear, you'll know the manager of the Los Angeles Dodgers has kept his word to Claude Osteen. Osteen, who tried to get Al ston's uniform number when he joined the Dodgers, had San Francisco's Thursday night as he limited the Giants to just one hit — a second inning single by Jack Hiatt — while posting his first National League shutout in a 3-0 victory. Acquired in the off-season trade that sent Frank Howard to Washington, the 25-year-old left-hander was looking over a Athletics Win 2 Babe Ruth Tilts The Athletics won a pair of games in the Ironwood-Bes s e- mer Babe Ruth League play this week as they downed the Gophers on Tuesday 15-10 and in Thursday night's game they nipped the Wolverines 6-2. Both games were played at Monarch Field. In the Tuesday night affair Shea pitched the entire game and was awarded the win. He allowed 10 runs on four hits and nine walks. Catching for the winning squad was Delimba. On the mound for the Gophers were Betlewski, Boggetto and LaGassa, with Betlewski suffering the loss. Gophers pounded out a five- run lead in the top of the first inning but the Athletics kept in pursuit and at the end of six innings the score was d e a d- locked at 8-8. In the Gop her half of the next inning the losers came up with two runs but the winners came back with a big seven runs to pht the game away. Hitting stars fpr the Athletic team were Sanders, McRae, De- limba, Miklesh and Koslov i c h. Cisewski and Delimba each got doubles and Miklesh hit a three- bagger. All four Gopher hits were divided among four players. In Thursday's contest the Athletics beat the Wolverines with Tom McRae turning in a superb pitching performance with a no- hitter going into the top of the seventh inning. He- struck out the first two batters that faced him in the final stanza and with a two-strike count on Goodrich, he allowed a blooping single for the only Wolverine hit of the game. Cisewski, McRae, Koslov i c h and Moon each got singles for the winning unit. The Athletics will hold a practice session at Monarch Fi e 1 d at 12 noon on Saturday. Dodger roster in his Beltsville. Md., home last winter when he finally decided to ask for No. 24. "I looked at the numbers, and there was no 24," Osteen explains. "Then I happened to look up at the top of the roster and spotted No. 24 — Walter Alston." So Osteen settled for No. 23. That's when Alston offered to do a modified strip. "If that guy can win some games for me, I'll be glad to give him the shirt off my back," said the Dodger manager. "I'll even throw in the pants." Better than that the towel. For it's pitching the Dodgers have had to rely on, and Osteen has combined with Sandy Koufax, Don Drysdale and Johnny Podres to form the most effective Big Four in the majors with all showing earned run averages under 2.50. Despite a record of six victories against six losses, Osteen has a sparkling 2.49 ERA. While Osteen was continuing his sharp pitching for the National League leaders, Vern Law posted his sixth straight victory by scattering seven hits as Pittsburgh downed St. Louis 4-1 and handed Bob Gibson his sixth straight setback. Second-place Milwaukee re mained 3>/ 2 back by defeating Philadelphia 4-2 and the Chicago Cubs edged Houston 6-5 in 11 innings. Cincinnati and New York were not scheduled. Osteen got the only support he needed from batterymate John Rosetaoro, who singled in two first-inning runs off Gaylord Perry, then singled and scored the final Dodger run in the third on a passed ball. Hiatt's hit, with two out in the second inning, was a clean single to left field. Law, meanwhile, got more than enough support from Willie Stargell, who drove in three runs with his 15th homer and a single as the Pirates made it 23 victories in their last 27 games —an .852 percentage. The Braves, trailing 2-1, whipped the Phillies with a three-run eighth-inning uprising that started when Felipe Alou drew a walk off Ray Gulp. Richie Allen's throwing error on Mack Jones' bunt and an intentional walk to Hank Aaron filled the bases. Joe Torre then singled in the tying and lead runs before another error, by John Hernnstein, enabled Aaron to score the final run. The Cubs got the winner in the llth against the Astros when Doug Clemens doubled, moved to third on an infield out and scored on a single by Billy Williams. The Astros had tied the score in the seventh when Jim Gentile singled, moved up on a wild pitch and a force out and scored on Walt Bond's single.

White Pine was the home team and will play its ent i r e 1965 home schedule on B e r gland's diamond because of repairs being made to its own field. The win gives the Berg land squad a perfect 2-0 record for the season and the Ironw o o d Red Devils, who sat idle Thursday, are the only other team in the league to boast of a perfect record as they sit in sec o n d place with a 1-0 mark. White Pine began the scoring in the clash with single runs in b o t h the first and second innings, holding the Vikings scoreless, but Bergland knotted the score at 2-2 in its half of the third with a pair of scores. Prom that point on it was all Bergland as a heads-up defense put a stop to the Warriors' scoring threat. The fourth inning was the turning point in the ball game for the winners as they loaded the bases, squeezed one run home and then Ralph P r u i k stepped into the batter's box to hit the league's first grand-slam home run of the 1965 campaign. Bergland's scoring continu e d in the fifth inning as it brought home three runs to take a 10-2 lead and carry that advantage through to the last out of the contest. Ralph Pruik not only aided the Bergland win with the grand- slammer, but was also the winning pitcher as he struck out 11 Warriors, walked two and allowed only six hits. B. Raymond began the mound duties for the White Pine nine and pitched three and two-thirds innings, allowing seven runs and five hits, struck out five and Issued no walks. Richard Dix took over the pitching chores in the fourth inning for White Pine and finished the game, allowing three runs, striking out f i v e and walking two. Both Bergland and White Pine will see action again next week as the Vikings take on Ironwood at Monarch Field on Monday at 6 p.m. and the White Pine Warriors will tangle with Hurley on Bergland's diamond the same day at 6 p.m. Berfland H.

The second inning in the Angel-Bomber game turned out to be the turning point for the Angels as five runs crossed the home plate on hits by Maki and Lewinski. The score was tied 3-3 at the end of the first inning until Schmidt, who doubled, was walked in in the second, scoring the only other run for the Bombers, while the Angels scored two more runs in the third inning, clinching the win. Schmidt and Carli both went to the hill for the Bombers striking out seven and walking 10 Angels. The winning pitcher, Wills, gave up four runs on three hits, walked three, and struck out 10.

White Pine landed in the league's number, three spot last season with a 6-4 record and was the only team to hand a loss to the league champion Ironwood Red Devils.
