Moorheod, Crooksfon, Vernda/e champions Otters place fourth in Class AA By BRUCE BAKKE Journal Sports Editor The name of the meet was the 31st annual Otter Invitational Rotary Track Meet but the story of the yearly classic was "30 new records". During the day-long invitational held Tuesday 30 new standards were smashed on the Otter all-weather oval. Jim Gotta's fast-moving Spuds eased into the Class AA championship scoring 99 points including six firsts to repeat as the top team in its division. Crookston, Northwest Athletic Association indoor and outdoor champions, had little Offer Invitational Results trouble winning its division. With Don Moore leading the way the Pirates posted 64 points. Moore won the 100 and 220 dashes in record times. Verndale, Barnesville and Elbow l.ake were in the thick of things until the final few heats, but the Pirates of Verndale proved too much for the rest of the field as they won Class B with 40 points. Barnesville was second with 34 and Elbow Lake, defending state Class B champions, was third with 30 points. Jim Golden, Fergus' ace sprinter raced to wins in the 220 and 440 - yard dashes and was second in the 100-yard dash to ring up 16 of the Otters' 37 total points.

BATTLE LAKE - Dave Grewe spun a sparkling five hitter and ripped out a single to lead the Fergus Falls Otter baseball team to a 3-1 win over Underwood in Sub-District 23 play Tuesday. Grewe, 3-1 record, fanned nine Underwood batters and walked three in giving up a single run to the usually high- scoring Rockets from Underwood. "In the last inning Grewe got into trouble when there were two men on base with two- away, but he got Underwood to pop out to Keith Stafford and the game was over," said coach John Hermes assessing the pitching of his right-handed senior. The Otters unloaded seven hits in scoring its three runs and only made one fielding error. "This is the best hitting we've had all season. We only struckout twice in the game and we could of had a few more hits if it wasn't for the fine defensive play of Underwood," added Otter coach Hermes. The Rockets hit paydirt first with a run in the top of the opening frame. Ken Rcslad singled up the middle, moved to second on Fergus' only error and scored on a slap single by Rick Jacobson. In the bottom of the third Fergus tallied the tying and go- ahead run which proved to be enough to earn a berth in the Sub-District 23 finals against Battle Lake this Thursday in Fergus at 4 p.m. In the third, sophomore Wayne Anderson singled, moved to second on a pop fly, Jan Kolle singled scoring Anderson and Anderson crossed the plate on a single by Bob Kowalski.

By BRENT KALLESTAD AP Sports Writer BLOOMINGTON, Minn. (AP) - The defending world champion Oakland Athletics slammed Minnesota a fifth straight time this season with an 9-1 victory Tuesday night to avenge their dismal 1973 performance against the Twins. Left-hander Dave Hamilton, now 3-0, stifled Minnesota while Reggie Jackson and Gene Tenace drilled seventh inning home runs to propel the A's to a 8-1 victory. Oakland won only 4 of 18 games against Minnesota last year. "Sure we're going to win our division," said Jackson. "Do you think I'm going to say we're not going to?" Jackson's 12th home run of the year climaxed a six-hit, six- run Oakland seventh innine which gutted the Twins. The victory pulled the A's a full game ahead of Chicago. The Rangers-White Sox game scheduled for Chicago was rained out Tuesday night. "I had my good fast ball," said Minnesota starter Joe Decker, who pitched out of numerous jams before the fatal seventh frame. "However, I may have relied on it too much and they were giving me a little trouble." Jackson leads the American League in home runs and is second in batting average at .385 and runs batted in with 32. "I might have a chance at the triple crown if (Rod) Carew retires before he gets 502 official at bats," Jackson said. "I just hope I can be within 30 points of him at the end of the season. He'll finish somewhere between .370 and .380." Carew managed a double in four tries and continues to lead the major leagues with a .414 batting average. Jackson has been used as the Oakland designated hitter the past few games while a pulled hamstring muscle heals. "I'm not quite 100 per cent yet, but I'll be there in a minute," he said. "I could go back to the outfield tonight." GET THIS FREE NORMAN ROCKWELL PRINT! '500' runs despite $1-million lawsuit By KEVIN FOLEY AP Sports Writer INDIANAPOLIS (AP) There will be a 500-mile auto race at the Indianapolis Motor Speedway Sunday, a top Speedway official says, despite a $1 million lawsuit to keep it from going off on schedule. "We will have a race Sunday," Chief Steward Tom Binford promised. "The only person who can stop it is God, and we haven't talked to Him." Suit was filed Tuesday in Marion County Superior Court in Indianapolis by attorneys Wright Hugus Jr., and Don A. Tabbert on behalf of seven ang- ry car owners. The suit slso seeks a temporary restraining order halting further activity at the track until the case is heard. Judge Frank Symmes set a hearing for early today. The action stems from last Saturday's rain-shortened time trials that left 11 cars at the line when the track dosed for racing. That deadline, speedway officials say, was set down in the Speedway entry blank signed by each of the 61 entrants who actually brought cars to the track. The car owners who did not get an attempt to qualify con- tended the deadline should have been extended to give all of the 50 cars that had been certified an opportunity to make the 33- car field. The pleas were denied. And Speedway officials turned down further requests for a reopening of qualifications. Speedway officials hope the court hearings won't delay Thursday's carburetion tests. Binford, who succeeded controversial Harlan Fengler this year, said, "Of course we will do whatever the judge says we should do." Plaintiffs are Roy Woods Racing, Carl Gehlhausen, Lar- ry McCoy ST., K&L Racing, Webster Racing, Rasmussen Racing Products Inc. and Grant King Racing. King said later he had not given permission to use his name in connection with the suit. King, whose No. 1 driver, Tom Sneva, already holds a third-row starting spot, said, "I don't need to go to court to tell the Speedway people what I have already told them in person. They didn't treat these people right." Sneva and driver Jim Hurtubise, who also qualified, and Parnelli Jones, 1963 Indy 500 winner and owner of the cars of starters Mario Andretti, Al Unser and rookie Jan Opperman, were among those who said the drivers were wronged. A suggestion by Hugus and Tabbert that the Speedway add a 12th row to the race also was turned down. The Speedway also had offered the plaintiffs a chance to reopen the trials if they obtained signatures from owners or drivers of already qualified cars. But Hugus and Tabbert said they fell far short of the necessary names. Last-place starter Larry Gannon refused to sign.
