By The Associated Press Two opposing runners tried for the extra base Monday night. Larry Bowa made it; Lou Brock didn't. Bowa scored from first base on Del Unser's single in the eighth inning. Brock didn't score in the sixth after stealing second and watching Philadelphia catcher Bob Boone throw the baseball into center field. "Brock tries to intimidate you on the bases," explained Philadelphia second baseman Dave Cash, who threw Brock out at the plate after chasing Boone's errant heave. "I saw him go, but I knew he couldn't outrun the ball." Bowa Win, 3-2 Times Herald, Carroll, la. Tuesday, April 16,1974 And with Brock off the base paths, the Cardinals couldn't outscore the Phillies—dropping a 3-2 decision despite two home runs by Reggie Smith. In other National League games, the Atlanta Braves blanked the San Diego Padres 6-0 and the Houston Astros trimmed the San Francisco Giants 3-1. In the American League, the Detroit Tigers nipped the Boston Red Sox 1-0, the Milwaukee Brewers topped the Baltimore Orioles 6-1, the California Angels blasted the Minnesota Twins 8-1, and the Oakland A's defeated the Chicago White Sox 4-3 in 13 innings. Brock's daring play may have inspired the 155-pound Bowa's attempt. "I've always made it a habit to run hard," said Bowa, "It was a gamble. If I'm out, I'm the goat." But Bowa made good his gamble. Cash was on second and Bowa on first when Unser slapped a single off second baseman Ted Sizemore's glove. As the ball skittered towards the right field foul line, Bowa scampered homeward. Cash had scored easily to give the Phillies a 2-1 lead, but ttowa's run proved the winner, as Smith slugged his second 18-Year-Old Looking for First Golf Win NEW YORK (AP) - Laura Baugh enjoys being a girl, likes being told she's pretty, loves buying clothes and is thrilled with the fame and fortune she's accumulated at the tender age of 18. But she's not satisfied. "I want to win a golf tournament awfully badly," she says. "I really do want to win one. I've come in second a couple of times but it's not the same. I really want to win a tournament." Miss Baugh hopes to win this weekend in Palm Springs in the $200,000 Dinah Shore Wi.nner's Circle tournament—one of the top events on the Ladies Pro Golf Association tour. Laura joined the tour when she turned 18 last July amidst a hallabaloo of publicity occasioned at least as much by her beauty as by her backswing. Her credentials included winning the prestigious U.S. Amateur championship in 1971 and heine named Golf Digest's Most Beautfful Golfer of 1972. Her pro debut came in the Lady Tara Classic in Atlanta and for two rounds she more Carroll County Republican Precinct Caucuses will be held April 22 at 8:00 P.M. at the following locations: JASPER — at the home of Mr. & Mrs. John Toyne WHEATLAND - Breda city hall ARCADIA — at the home of Evelyn Hoick MAPLE RIVER, Carroll 1,2,3,4, and Grant Precincts will caucus in the court room GLIDDEN 1 & 2 at the Glidden city hall HIGHLAND, PLEASANT VALLEY, NEWTON AND UNION will caucus in the community activities center on Main Street in Coon Rapids ROSELLE 1,2, AND EDEN at the Templeton city hall WASHINGTON AND EWOLDT at the Manning City Library WARREN — at the Manning Livestock Auction office.

Braves 6, Padres 0 Phil Niekro befuddled the Padres on four hits with his flutterball, striking out 13 and walking three batters in leading the Braves to victory. He allowed only singles while his teammates jumped on Randy Jones for three runs in the first inning and another in the second.. Atlanta picked up three more runs in the sixth, with FCiekro singling one run in himself. Henry Aaron left the game after five innings with a stiff right shoulder. Aaron has than lived up to advance billing by leading the field. But she fell off in the third round and finished one stroke behind winner Mary Mills. She wound up with $15,325 in earnings for the season and was named LPGA Rookie of the Year. Promoters have beaten a path to her door with offers. So Laura spends her time these days between tpurnevs endorsing an assuitment ot products, including toothpaste, and works as a fashion editor for the Ladies Home Journal. Not bad for a teenager with less than one year on her own. Unlike many of her contemporaries, Miss Baugh doesn't feel insulted when people talk about her beauty while neglecting her golf skills. "It doesn't bother me one bit," she says. "I'm flattered. . . I also think it helps the tour. Women have turned out for men's tournaments for years to look at the men. Why shouldn't the men come out to look at us?" Laura takes her golf seriously and plays just about every day. She began to play in earnest at the age of 12 when her parents split up and she moved to California with her mother and two older brothers. "When I moved out to Long Beach I just wanted to find something that was mine, something to make me different from other people," she recalls. "I wanted to be self-sup-, porting." Golf Meeting There will be an opening ladies golf meeting at the Carroll municipal course at 8 p.m. Monday night. is on us ... and consumers, too We're talking about price increases for coal, the raw fuel we need to produce much of our electricity, and all the other items it takes to maintain service* Some people say the price of coal has jumped drastically because of great expense at the mines like implementing safety regulations, increased extraction costs and bigger transportation bills. Others are saying certain coal producers with low-sulfur coal are slowing down at the mines . . . waiting for industries needing the resource to bid the price up because they need it to meet air quality rules. Major users facing shortages of other fuels are switching to coal. Production efforts have been hampered by proposed federal surface mine regulations preventing work on certain federal lands in the west. But whatever the causes are, the effect is clear: coal prices are drastically high. Iowa's rural electric cooperatives, the RECs, are paying much higher coal bills. These costs will be passed on to the consumer. You don't like it. We don't, either. "generating plants, substations, transformers, conductor, trucks, etc., etc. three hits—all of them home runs—in 21 at-bats this season. Astros 3, Giants 1 Larry Dierker pitched a three-hitter while Lee May and Ollie Brown provided home run support in Houston's triumph. Dierker struck out eight and walked two to win his second game of the season. He pitched only 27 innings last season due to arm trouble, but has come back strongly this season. The Giants took a 1-0 lead in the first, but Houston tied it in the second before the home run hitters took over in the sixth and seventh. Tigers 1, Red Sox 0 Norm Cash hit his first home run of the season in the fifth inning, and Joe Coleman pitched a three-hitter to carry Detroit past Boston. Coleman pitched a two-hitter in his last outing—a victory over the New York Yankees— and followed Monday by giving up only singles to Rick.Miller, Doug Griffin and Mario Guerrero. The Red Sox left seven men on base. Brewers 6, Orioles 1 Clyde Wright, who couldn't even bend over last season because of severe pain in his back, pitched a four-hitter to aelp Milwaukee beat the Orioles. A two-run single by Pedro Garcia and a throwing error by Baltimore starter Mike Cuellar contributed >to a five-run Milwaukee second inning. Wright surrendered the Ori'oels run'in the second inning, but didn't allow a hit after that inning. Angels 8, Twins 1 The Angels had 12 hits and took advantage of five Minnesota errors in crushing the Twins. Bill Singer cruised in with a five-hitter, striking out seven and surrendering only an unearned Twins run in the sixth. Joe Lahoud homered and singled, driving in two runs, while Lee Stanton, Frank Robinson, Sandy Alomar and Mickey Rivers also had two hits each. The Angels, 7-2, are off to the best start in their 14-year history. A's 4, White Sox 3 Gene Tenace lined a single to center in the 13th inning, scoring John Donaldson to give the A's their victory. Donaldson, who needs only 49 more'days in the major leagues to qualify for his pension, had opened the 13th with a checked swing single over shortstop. He moved to second one out later when Joe Rudi grounded to Bill Melton, then Tenace delivered his game-winning hit. Dick Allen had given the White Sox a 3-0 lead with a home run in the third inning. The hit broke an O-for-13 batting slump for the slugger. Oakland charged back with two runs in the fifth inning and tied in the eighth on a sacrifice fly by Reggie Jackson.

Turner Cup The Saginaw Gears defeated Des Moines, 5-2, Monday night in their third game of the International Hockey League's Turner Cup finyls. Little bit about a lot of things... Little League There has been increasing concern why only 45 boys have signed up for the Senior Little League baseball program this year. Last year over 100 boys were involved in the age 13 to 15 program. Maybe one of the reasons is the $5 registration fee which goes to cover insurance, balls, bats and other equipment. The fee was raised this year because of the rising costs of equipment and because commissioner Bob Beeson is hoping to hire umpires for so much a game. Another reason maybe why the boys aren't out could be the parents. Where is all the volunteer help that is needed to run a first class league? I think if everybody put in their time and it need not be very much, that Carroll can have a successful program. It's amazing that in the past two seasons, Carroll's Senior Little League teams have come within inches of making the state meet. Sure, we had good players but we need your help. Let's make this program a success and let's give our boys not only in Carroll, but surrounding towns something extra to do in the summer time.
