300G for Li'J League Foul fo Woman Civic A new target has been develoved in the row between Bayside home owners and Little League baseball enthusiasts the reported t $300,000 appropriation for league facilities, which has been challenged by a home owner group. The proposed appropriation was attacked as illegal by Mrs. Gloria Wall, Bayside Oaks Civic Association secretary, who contends it was authorized witiiout a public hearing. Backers of the league- facilities want a field developed at 57th Kiad and 2.".0th St., a project advocated by the rival Bayside Hills Civic Association headed bv Albert L. Falloni.

Hentel intervened, although Parks Department crews tore down a backstop.
