Today at 1:30 p.m. Perham faces Pelican Rapids and Underwood meets Fergus at 4 p.m. in the second round of the Sub-Ninth District American Legion Baseball Tournament {Journal photo by Bruce Batte) 64,719 fans watch game Stars nip Bell 17-15 By BRUCE BAKKE Journal Sports Editor UNDERWOOD — Steve Lund spun a one-hitter and his teammates pounded out nine hits to hand Breckenridge an impressive 13-1 victory over Battle I-ake and in the second game Underwood played its best game of the season to defeat a strong Perham club 5-3 Thursday in Sub-Ninth District play- Today Pelican Rapids meets Perham at 1:30 p.m., Underwood clashes with Fergus Falls at 4 and Rothsay meets the winner of the Pelican Rapids- Perham game at 6:30 p.m. In the opening game Breckenridge, defending champion, took a 2-0 lead in the second frame, added three runs in the third, pushed across six in the fourth and scored its final two runs in the fifth inning. Battle Lake, which defeated Rothsay 10-0 Wednesday, scored its only run in the fifth inning. Mark Hustad killed Lund's no-hit try when he singled up the middle. Up to this hit by Hustad Breckenridge's ace chucker, Lund, had retired Battle Lake in order for four frames. Hustad's hit must have shaken I^und as the young hurler threw two straight wild pitches sending Hustad to third base. Hustad scored on a fielder's choice when teammate Rod Borg connected with Lund's pitch. Battle Lake made seven errors in its loss to Breckenridge. The defending champions scored 13 runs on nine hits and played errorless ball for five innings. Earlier in the Legion season Perham's hurler Scott I-eorzel defeated Underwood with a no- hit pitching gem but yesterday I>eorzel had his problems and pitcher Dan Ledding was right on target in Underwood's 5-3 victory. "Ledding kept the ball down low — he had good control today—he's a real strong kid," said Underwood coach Ron \* At Larson assessing his young hurler. Underwood, which lost to Perham twice this season, scored five runs on eight hits and five Perham errors. Perham scored its three runs on four hits and three Underwood miscues in the only game of the tournament that went the full seven innings. Underwood opened up the scoring in the top of the first scoring two runs on three hits. Perham's Jack Dretsch answered with a two-run homer that sailed over 300 feet to tie the tame at 2-2. Perham took a short-lived 3-2 lead when Jack Oelfke crossed the plate. Underwood battled back with a run in the third frame and one in the. fourth and they scored the game's final run in the sixth. Rick Jacobson led Underwood's hitting attack going 2 for 3, Ken Rostad was 2 for 4 and Randy Andrews, Pat I-annon, Bruce Moore and Terry Leitch all hit safely. Perham's leading hitter was Jack Dretsch at 2 for 4. Bando, Blue lead A's past Twins 5-1 DAN LEDDING Journal* SPORTS Fergus Falls (Mi.) loinal Fri., July 26,1974 10 OAKLAND (AP) - Two of the heroes of the 1973 world championship Oakland A's were back in the groove Thursday night. Sat Bando hit a pair of homers and drove in three runs while pitcher Vida Blue tossed a-three-hitter in a 5-1 victory over the Minnesota Twins. Bando, who missed Tuesday's All-Star Game because of a sore ankle, said the rest did him good. "I wasn't swinging for home runs. All I wanted was a couple of hits," he said. His sore ankle didn't bother him at all. "You don't hit the ball with your ankle," he cracked. Blue, 12-9, who had troubles early in the season, won his sixth game in the last seven starts. Yet, he wasn't completely satisfied with his performance. " On a scale of 10,1 would rate it about five. I've pitched better and lost, he said." The A's scored all their runs off losing pitcher Joe Decker, now 10-9. Bando's first homer followed a triple by Bert Campaneris in the first inning. He homered again in the third, and Dick Green's homer made it 4-0 in the fifth inning. Joe Rudi also doubled in the fifth to score Bando with the final run. That completed a perfect night for Bando, who had three hits, scored three runs and drove in three. Although he walked five batters and three others reached base on errors, Blue had a no- hitter until the fifth inning when Rod Carew, the league's leading hitter, beat out an infield single. He lost his shutout when rookie Craig Kusick hom- ered in the seventh. The A's now have defeated Minnesota seven straight times this season and lead the American League West by six games.

PHILADELPHIA (AP) The New York Stars' victory over the Philadelphia Bell Thursday night was a snap. But that doesn't mean it was easy. Larry Butler went into the game as a guard for the Stars. At the end of the game he was the center, and the hero. With less than four minutes gone in the fourth quarter, Moses I^jterman booted a 40- yard soccer-style field goal to give the Stars their first World Football League victory, a 17-15 decision over the Bell in a nationally televised game. "It was my first snap of the season," said Butler, who moved from guard to center when Bob Kuziel was injured in the second half. "I was confident that I could get it through, but it was a real bad snap." Lajterman agreed, but the Argentine kicker from Montclair State (N.J.) College still Jenkins tops Wood, Chisox By KEN RAPPOPORT AP Sports Writer You've really got to have something up your sleeve to beat Wilbur Wood. Ferguson Jenkins of the Texas Rangers dealt his ace Thursday night — a curve ball that dropped off the table. "My curve was excellent and that was the pitch that got me out of a lot of jams," Jenkins noted after whipping Wood and the Chicago White Sox 4-1 with a seven-hitter."It was a strange game for me in in a way. Normally I throw at least 20 sliders a game. "But I threw almost all curves and f astballs. I threw only a couple of changeups and sliders tonight." In the other American League games, the New York Yankees beat the Milwaukee Brewers 1-0; the Boston Red Sox routed the Detroit Tigers 12-4; the Cleveland Indians beat the Baltimore Orioles twice, 5-7 and 5-4 in 13 innings; the Oakland A's trimmed the Minnesota Twins 5-1 and the Kansas City Royals nipped the California Angels. Yankees 1, Brewers 0 Bobby Murcer singled home a run in the first inning and George "Doc" Medich protected it with a five-hitter for his fifth consecutive complete- game victory as New York beat Milwaukee. Red Sox 12, Tigers 4 Rico Petrocelli, Carl Yastr- zemski and Tommy Harper blasted home runs, helping Boston rout Detroit. The Red Sox riddled Mickey Lolich for 11 hits and eight runs in the first three innings to hand the Tigers their 14th loss in 16 games. Indians 8-5, Orioles 7-4 John Ixwenstein's two-run double in a four-run, fifth inning and Dave Duncan's tworun homer led Cleveland over Baltimore in the first game of their doubleheader. Tom McCraw's bases-loaded single in the last of the 13th inning capped a two-run rally, giving Cleveland the second game. Royals 2, Angels 1 Jim Wohlford's run-scoring single in the eighth inning gave Kansas City its victory over California. managed to put it through the cross bars. "It was a bad snap, but it went through," said Lajterman, whose boot culminized a 50-yard drive in 11 plays. Philadelphia, now 1-2, muffed two last-ditch chances to win before the record WFL hometown crowd of 64,719. A 36-yard field goal attempt by Jack Sim- csak with 2:12 remaining went off to the right, and a 26-yarder by George Chatlos with one second on the clock was wide to the left. Philadelphia took an 8-0 lead in the first quarter on an 18- yard King Corcoran pass to Claude Watts and an action point. New York, also 1-2, closed the gap midway in the second period wher. Dave Richards bolted over from the one-yard line. Two plays earlier, the 185- pound running back pulled in a 40-yard deflected pass from quarterback Tom Sherman before being tackled on just short of the goal line. The Stars made it 14-7 at halftime on a one-yard dive by Bob Gladieux after Sherman set the play up with a 20-yard pass to Al Young. But Philadelphia regained the lead, 15-14, at 5:51 of the third period on a nine-yard TD pass from Corcoran to LeVell Hill. *** (Second Game) Underwood 201 101 0-5 8 3 Perham 210 000 0-3 4 5 Dane Ledding (WP) and Gary Bjorklund; Scott Leorzel (LP) Bob Schmidt (5) and Tim Strom.

PAUL, Minn. (AP) Newspaper publisher Bernard H. Ridder of St. Paul said Thursday he is considering selling the large block of Minnesota Vikings stock controlled by Northwest Publications, Inc. Ridder told the Minneapolis Tribune that the publishing firm holds 30 per cent of the Vikings' voting stock and 21 per cent of the non voting stock. It is believed to be the largest single block of shares in the Vikings, but the team's financial affairs have never been made public. Ridder said that the sale of the publishing firm's interest in the Vikings is being considered in light of the planned merger of the Ridder and Knight newspaper groups. He noted that Knight has newspapers in Miami and some other National Football league cities. Ridder also indicated that some disagreements with Vikings President Max Winter were factors in the possible sale of the stock Ridder controls. Winter has 20 per cent of the voting stock. Asked whether bad feeling over the recent resignation of Vikings General Manager Jim Finks was one of the problems, Ridder lold the Tribune: "I thought Jim was an outstanding general manager. I did not like the way things were handled." GREEN BAY, Wis. (AP) — Fans cheered the pickets and a deputy police chief expressed regret Thursday as 21 players were taken into custody after refusing to halt a demonstra T tion in support of the National Football League strike. Summer Recreation Tee League Senators 27, Braves 16 Cards 18, Phillies 6 Orioles 27, Metros 17 Toss League Ravens 14, Hawks 10 Robins 11, Jays 9 Dwarf League Pirates 3, Broncos 2 Bears 8, Poines 0 Sox 11, A's 9 NFL adds three picket lines By HAL BOCK AP Sports Writer Just the way most people make a down payment on a car, striking National Football League players have placed a do-ATi payment on picket help with the United Auto Workers. There were three extra pickets walking the line Thursday outside a Lordstown, Ohio auto assembly plant which has been struck by the UAW. They were Ed Podolak of the Kansas City Chiefs, Gary Bailman of the Minnesota Vikings and Don Diedorf of the St. Louis Cardinals, and their appearance was no accident. The ^football players were trading their services at Ihe auto workers' strike line for a pledge of picket help by the UAW when the NFL Players Association throws its line up at Saturday's Hall of Fame Game in Canton, Ohio. The game between the St. I-ouis Cardinals and Buffalo Bills will be played by rookies, free agents and non-striking veterans with the NFLPA and some 150 volunteers from UAW Local 1112 picketing outside the stadium. Meanwhile. Edward Coleman. board chairman of UAW Local 542, said his union representatives have voted not to join the picket line. The Hall of Fame said it had received about 500 demands for refunds including one from Frank Valenta, president of the 130,000-membcr Greater Cleveland J-abor Federation. "I'm an avid pro football fan." said Valenta, "but I refuse to be a scab football fan." Caught in the middle of football's labor tangle is Mayor Stanley Cmich, who doesn't usually have this much commotion in Canton. "Both parties should resolve the issue at a negotiating table," said the mayor, "not outside Fawcett Stadium. Our community doesn't deserve this kind of treatment." Elsewhere, a trickle of veterans continued to show up at NT I. camps. As of Thursday evening, the NFL Management Council, the league's bargaining agent with the Players Association, reported that 1S5 veterans had reported to training camps despite the strike. The only teams without any veterans in camp were the Denver Broncos and Minnesota Vikings. Cincinnati has 21 non-strikers, the largest veteran contingent of any team. The latest Bengal to report was defensive tackle Mike Reid, one of the players who showed up Thursday. The San Francisco 49ers added two vets when defensive end Cedric Hardman and linebacker Willie Harper walked into camp. Harper told assembled newsmen: "Me and Cerir- ick have no comment." Tight end Gary Parris was one of three San Diego Chargers to check in. "I came to get in shape," said Parris. "You don't get in shape carrying that picket sign." ' Quarterback Ken Stabler gave essentially the same reason for showing up at Oakland's camp. 1 'I'm a quarterback," he said. "It's time I start throwing. I can't wait longer. I've gol to see the rookies I'm going to be working with and the guys I'm going to be throwing to." The original veteran, 46-year old George Blanda, also showed up in the Raiders' camp, ready to start his 25th season of professional football.

Compton called himself a fan who disliked making the arrests. He gave Bowman, a practicing attorney, an opportunity to discuss legal issues with pickets before making the arrests as fans streamed past to a Bears-Packers charity scrimmage staged mostly by rookies and free agents. Rookies converted two pass interceptions into touchdowns as the Packers won 17-0. Chester Marcol, one of three Packer regulars who crossed picket lines, added a field goal. In the Lambeau Field parking lot, spectators cheered the pickets and voiced objections to the arrests. The Packer Corp. had obtained a court order against the picketing, and Bowman's demonstrators voted by a 2-1 margin to ignore it. Green Bay coach and general manager Dan Devine said he was not immediately aware his dissident players were being arrested, and s^d he didn't care to discuss it. "I am a football coach," he said. "There was a group of fine young men who played a remarkable game. They deserve to be talked about." The arrested pickets included Bowman and Mac Percival, player representatives for the Packers and Bears respectively- Others were identified as Packers Dick Himes, Gale Gillingham, Bill Lueck, Bill Hayhoe, Cal Witherow, Scott Hunter, Clarence Williams, Tom Macleod, MacArthur Lane, Larry Krause, Rich McGeorge, Aaron Brown, Carleton Oats and Paul Staroba, Washington Redskin Willie Holman, a former Bear, and Bears Dave Hale, Glenn Holloway, Joe Moore and Rich Cody.
