The impressive dre.-s rehearsal for Tuesday’s go-for- broke classic, made in teeming heat, provided the fastest clock­ ings ever in the race. There were no accidents, and the yellow light stopping the cars flashed on only twice for minor incidents. Parnelli Jones of Torrance, Calif., in his turbine-powered machine, and dapper Dan Gurne of Santa Anna, Calif., joined Andretti of Nazareth, Pa., in streaking to 163 m.p.h. and making the practice look like the real rim for the money. Watching Steve Hargan Worth Admission Price Thirty of the 33 starters and an alternate spun their wheels in the three-hour session set aside for final carburet ion tests. Only the machines at Cale Yar borough of Timmonsville. S. C., Scotland’s Jimmy Clark, the 1965 winner, and defending champion Graham Hill of London stood still. Hill missed out by only seconds when his crew pushed his car into the pit just before the practice time ended. Scotland’s Jackie Stewart also was absent—he was in Europe testing a new engine— but his auto was given a final shake-down run by A1 Unser of Albuquerque, N. M. Hie traditional drivers’ meeting will be held Monday, the last official function before the flying start at 12 noon EDT Tuesday.

Major League Leaders Westfield Jr. High Wins Cloverleaf District Meet Westfield Junior High scored 61 points to defeat Seville and Lodi and win the Cloverleaf District Junior High Track Meet held at Seville. Seville had 51 points and Lodi 44 in the triangular. Only individual double winner was Steve Auxter of Seville, who took the blue ribbon in the 100 yard dash and the 220 yard dash. Westfield's 440 and 880 relay teams won the relay events by decisive margins.

Stokers Defeat Washington By United Press International A second professional soccer league made its debut in t h e U. S. sports world Friday night with the Cleveland Stokers taking the Washington Whips (2-1) before an inaugural turnout of 9,403 fans. The Stokers, whose team consists of the players from Stoke City, England, won the first game in the United Soccer Association as forward Roy Vernon pumped in a tie-breaking second half goal against the Whips, who were brought here from Aberdeen, Scotland. A pair of Medina High’s award winning athletes are shown above. Mike Palinchik, left, received the Sidney Fenn scholarship-athlete award, and Jack Conley was named the best senior athlete. The awards were presented at a recognition assembly, Thursday. CLEVELAND (UPI) - Steve \ Hargan is worth the price of admission all by himself. The 24-year-old Hoosier did it again Friday night, as the Indians, who rarely looked better themselves, downed the Yankees 4-3 in fine style. Hargan spread around nine hits, struck out 10 and gave up no earned runs. His ERA stands at 1.72 in 68.1 innings pitched. He has a 6-3 record, the best on the club, struck out 43 so far t/.is season and has hurled six complete games. He throws harder and harder and is a joy to watch. Unlike the more chickenhearted of his brethren his philosophy is the better the batter the harder you have to throw. I For instance there’s Mickey I Mantle. “He’s the best there is,” Hargan said. “Any pitcher in both leagues would be impressed when Mantle comes up to the plate. You just have to rear back and give him the best you’ve got.” Close One Mantle, who went 1-4 Friday, gave Hargan a good scare. He pulled a patented Mantle shot down the right field foul line that roared into the upper deck barely foul. “Sure I was scared,” said Hargan. “I laughed when it went foul. I would have cried if it was fair.” In the third inning Hargan was hit by a pitched ball. Joe Adcock must have blanched when Hargan did a neat back­ flip and took the ball on his chest. It raised a welt the size of a 50-cent piece. Bees Ousted Ghost Leads Medina Win String In Southwestern Diamond Race Medina horses have a win streak going at Northfield Park, and it will be up to a couple old favorites to keep it alive tonight. Silver Ghost, the ace trotter of the Howard Gross sta b I e, and Adios Cecility, Bill Ra c h- ten’s speedster, won last night’s seventh and eighth races at the Rt. 8 oval. Earlier in the evening Earle Gibb’s Singles Rus t y Medina was eliminated fr o m the Southwestern Confer e n c e baseball race last night, absorbing an 11-4 defeat by Avon Lake. The Bees finished the year with a fine 8-6 record in conference play and an 11-10 mark overall. Avon Lake scored in every inning but the sixth in rack i n g up the win. Medina put across its scoring with two in the second, one in the fourth, and one in the fifth. ' Medina’s cinder squad like the In the second frame, a wai k baseball team finished its sea- finished second. It was Ghost’s fourth straight win. Also this week Tom Haight’s Success Dean came home a winner, while Ron Richardson had a second with Armys’ Bo m b, and show ribbons were won by George Mueller’s Meadow Doc and Paul Swagler’s Meadow Spud who also olicked for a sec- Medina Falls To Generals On Wooster High Track to Ray Eckert, Mike McMullen’s double, and an error and wild pitch accounted for a pair of Bee runs. Eckert scored a- gaki in the fourth after drawing another base on balls. He rode in on McMullen’s single and two errors. Medina’s final tally came in on singles by Jack Conley and Tom Clevidence, and Tony Werner's sacrifice fly. Rick Williams started for die Bees. He had relief help fr o m Ron Letter ly in the second and r,ick Goodwin in the seventh. Heim started for the Sh o r e- men and went all the way for the victory. The U-10 mark was a reversal of last year’s 10-11 record, and the best baseball record for any Medina team. son on a losing note. The Bees pasted only .three first places in falling to a rugged Wooster squad, 92-35. Gary Hetrick sprinted the 100- yard dash in 10.5, Joe Donnell ran the mile in 4:49.3, and Glen Olds leaped the high jump bar at 5-8 to account for the Bee first places. Olds’ leap of 5-8 was the freshman’s best effort of the season. Medina was completely shut out in the pole vault, long jump,, and discus as Wooster took the first three places in each. Jim Dyer and Phil Gompf were double winners for the G« biv als, who wrapped up their schedule with a 9-1 slate^ Medina finished the year at 27 In duals.

His lifetime earnings topped $36,000 at the start of t h i s season. Hot Stove League The junior varsity squad took only one first place as it was drubbed, 92-21, by the undefeated Wooster reserves.

He accounted for four wins and a 2:02 mark in t h a t stretch. He’s in the Ohioan Pace, tonight’s $4,500 featured event, and will be stacked against such as J. H. Dandy, winner of his only start this year in a 2:04-3; Toodly Du, who posted a 17-11-3-2 mark last year; Shawne Volo; Irish Joe, winner three times and a 2:04-3 time this year; Nellie’s Chief and Free Heather. In the co-feature, the Chagrin Valley Trot, a $2,500 event, Paul Swagler’s Incognito draws the rail as he seeks his first win in five starts. He has a second and third. Making her first start of the year at Northfield, in the ninth race, will be the promising Mox ley-Bowman pacer, three-year- old Alota Good. She’s won three of four heats this spring at matinees, under the guidance of 14- year-old Gary Bowman. Tonight “Dad” — Earl Bowman — will get the chance to see if he can do as well with her at Northfield as Gary did in the matinees. Maybe that loosened me up bit. 1 tried to protect my face. I could see it coming up at my face. It kinds scared me at first.” One Hairy Moment Hargan got into trouble only once — in the second inning. Steve Whitaker got on with an infield hit. He made it to second on an error by Pedro Gonzalez. Four back-to-back singles by Charlie Smith, Ruben Amaro, Fritz Peterson and Horace Clarke drove in three unearned runs. Max Alvis tied it up in the third with his fourth home run of the year. Larry Brown and Hargan were on board. With the score tied 3-3 and two out in the eighth, Joe Azcue hit a grounder to Smith at third. Smith hobbled the ball then threw wild to first. Azcue scooted around to third. The kindly official scorer credited Azcue with a single and gave Smith a two - base error. Then came Gonzalez, who smashed one over second with the winning run. “It was a good one,” said Joe Adcock. It was a good one. Tribal Notes: The crowd was a rousing 11,563, hardly cause for celebration, but still the second - best crowd of the year looked strange having all those people...there was even a little traffic jam after the game. Mickey Mantle is still Mickey Mantle...he leads the Yankees in home runs and RBI’s and hanHtoa first with aplomb...if his knees bother him it does not show...he chases after the ball with vigor if not with speed. New York sportswriter (those still left) spent more time arguing about the Mets than they did watching the Yankees...they flashed the halftime score of the Stokers soccer game in Washington on the scoreboard...more people were interested in the attendance than in the outcome of the first Cleveland soccer game.
