The Badgers will host the. 61st Big Ten indoor meet Friday night and Saturday afternoon. There appeared little chance for many records in the meet, but the Badgers, who won five events in the national federation . meet, boast . the best performers so far this season in eight of the 16 individual events on the program. EASTERN HOCKEY STARS NEW YORK (UPI)-The Eastern Hockey L'aague Wednesday selected Pierre Brind' Amour of the New Haven Blades and Ron Low of Jacksonvil e as co-winners of the Rookie of the. Year Award. Montreal Expos By.JOHN G. GRIFFIN UPI Sports Edito WEST PALM BEACH, Fla. (UPI>-It's hard to see how Montreal's marvelous baseball fans could get any more excited than they were in 1970, but they probably Will if manager Gene Mauch's plans for the Expos come true. ° "We set 70 j victories as a target last year and it became a sort of a rallying cry in Canada . -70 in "70," Mauch explained at the Expos' training camp here far away from-the snows at home. ''Well, we did it — we won 73 games in 1970. "We think we can win 81 in •71." There's no telling how the Montreal fans will react to that. Last year they spun the turnstiles of little Jarry Park 1,424,683 times to watch a team that finished last in the National League East, and that's a record for enthusiasm which, in itself, was one of the best things about rhe Expos last season. Sobre Caution How, long will it.be before those fans will have a pennant contender to get excited about? Mauch doesn't answer that directly, but he speaks with sober caution. "You can improve a team with trading, but you can't produce a pennant contender just by trading. You have to develop a pennant contender, and that's what we're trying to do." The Expos made one trade during „ the winter —they acquired second baseman Ron Hunt from the San' Francisco Giants for infielder David McDonald. Hunt, 30, an aggressive, all-out player, brings to the Expos a consistent bat —he hit .281 last year. Mauch's glad to have that bat, but he indicated Hunt isn't automatically his second baseman. ? "Actually, right now I think Gary Sutherland is more familiar with the kind of game I want this team to. play," Mauch said. "Right now I look on Hunt as a player who can help our offense."' Two Solid Pitchers Well, what are the materials with which Mauch hopes to lift the Expos up to 81 victories — which would be a .500 season? First of all, he's got two solid pitchers, Carl Morton, the National League's "rookie of the year hen he won 18 games and lost 11, and six-foot- five Steve Renko, who was 1311. . . If Mack Jones can rebound from his 1970 form (.240 with 14 homers' 1 to his 1969 form (.270 with 22 horaers>, then' the Expos will have four solid bats. Add in Hunt and outfielder Clyde Mashore, who hit .308 with 27 homers for Syracuse of the International League before joining the Expos last September, and it could be that the Expos will not be last in the league in hitting (.237) again. Infield Lineup The Expos' infield will line up with - Fairly at first, Sutherland or Hunt at second, Bobby Wine (.232) at short, and righthan ders. Bailey or Coco Laboy (.199) or lefthanded hitter Marv ° Staehle (.218 at third. Except for Staub in right, there will be " plenty of platooning in the outfield with righthanders Bailey, Adolfo Phillips, Mashore, and maybe Don Hahn, and lefthanders Jim. Fairey, Boots Day, Jim Gosger, and Jones. : John Bateman (.237) is the first-string catcher, backed up by John Boccabella and Ron Brand. What about pitchers behind Morton and Renko? "We've got a group of fellows battling for starting jobs and they all look promising," says Mauch. "There's Bill Stoneman, Dan McGinn, Jim Br it ton, John Strohmayef, and Mike Wegener." Ace Bull Pen Mauch says Stoneman could be ready to "blossom out" any time. The righthander, who pitched a no-hitter in 1969, led the club in strikeouts in 1970 but was only 7-15 with a 4.59 earned run avarage. Britton is coming back ' from a knee operation that kept him out last year. The Expos' bullpen is in better shape than many. Top firemen are Howie Reed, who was 6-5, and Claude Raymond, the club's only authentic French-Canadian, who was 6-7. The Expos have a long way to go to contend for the penna.t They were 16 games behind Pittsburgh last year, and Mauch thinks the Pirates still are "the class of the division." But they were only a half-game away from escaping the cellar. Eighty-one wins last year would have been worth fourth place last year. And how do you think that would strike the Montreal fans this year, eh, Cherie? By United Press International The ranks of baseball's holdouts were thinned Wednesday when Bog Powell, the Baltimore Orioles' slugging first baseman, and three other American League stars agreed to terms.

On othec fronts: Denny Today's Sport Pa By MILTON RICHMAN UPl Sports Writer TAMPA, Fla. (UPI)-The baseball commissioner looked the ballplayer squarely in the eye. He was questioning him very carefully regarding one of his teammates. "Now I want you to think, and think bard, whether you have ever been in the company of —when he was using marijuana?" The commissioner inquired. "I don't remember," said the ballplayer: "Your answer Is unsatisfactory," the commissioner / said. "Think awhile and I'm sure you'll remember." "I don't, remember," the player repeated. History Repeated "Then I'll tell- you what you do," said the commissioner angrily. ^ "You leave thi office, take the" elevator downstairs, walk around the block and keep walking until yo do remember. Don't come back up here before you're ready to give me the answer." Commissioner Bowie Kuhn? No. ' ' : V It was commissioner Kene. saw Mountain Landis with problems of his own 35 years ago. Te player in question finally did come back to Landis' office with an answer and his answer was no, he had never been in the company of this particular Infielder at any tim that he could swear he was using' marijuana. The episode comes back now in light of the seminars on drugs being conducted by Bowie Kuhn. he reailly is beating an old horse. • i' No Hard Drug Use During the more than 30 years I've been around baseball I know of only a half dozen or so players who ever tried marijuana. Those who did usually did it for a lark. [ As far as hard drugs go I don't , believe it would be possible for a player to use them habitually and still perform. I don't think "any ballplayer i would be stupid enough to give himself a fix and then try to stand up there and hit against, say, a Bob Gibson. ' ;•. "What I don't Uke," says Dal Maxvil, the St. Louis Cardinals' shortstop and player rep, "is that a lot of the drug articles I read in connection with baseball mention the word 'discipline.' That gives people the idea- there has been an abuse. I've nevec in my life seen a player taking a hard drug and I hope I neve do."
