Aaron Hits Single in Win By the Associated Press Hank Aaron finally hit one. . .a single, that is. "It's about time," the Atlanta superstar said Thursday night after getting his first non-home run hit of the baseball season. Ralph Garr, meanwhile, was smacking everything in sight, getting three straight hits, driving in two runs and scoring twice to lead the Braves to a 7-2 victory over the San Diego Padres. I n T h u r s d a y ' s o t h e r National League games. St. Louis beat Philadelphia (5-2, Montreal downed the New York Mets 8-5, San Francisco defeated Houston 5-2 and the Chicago Cubs edged Pittsburgh 1-0. In the American League, the New York Yankees whipped Boston 6-1, Minnesota clipped California 3-2 and Baltimore's game at Detroit was rained out. Braves 7. Padres 2 Aaron's only three hits going into Thursday night's games were, as if you hadn't heard, home runs, the 7Hth. 715th and 716th of his career. But in 21 other official at-bats, he hadn't managed so much as a single. Then, last Monday night, he hurt his shoulder making a throw. He'd been sidelined since then. Against the Padres, he walked, struck out twice, then grounded a single up the middle, putting his average at .167. "The shoulder hurts and I can't swing the bat." Aaron said. "It feels terrible and it keeps me from swinging freely." Garr had gotten hits in his last four at-bats Wednesday night in a 6-1 loss to the Padres, then kept the streak going in his first three Thursday night. He was so intent on making it eight in a row that he strode to the plate in the eighth inning without a batting helmet. "I was just thinking about hitting tne ball," he admitted sheepishly. "The umpire told me I'd forgotten the helmet, the fans told me. . .everybody was telling me." After he put it on, he grounded out. It's been quite a turnaround for Garr. who went O-for-16 at the start of the season but has hit at a 21-for-38 clip since then to nut his average at .382. KxposS, Mets 5 "1 was looking for a fastball all the way " said Jim Cox— and that's exactly what Ray Sadecki served him. The Montreal rookie drove it over the wall for a two-run homer in the third inning, giving the P'xpos their winning margin over the staggering Mets. Cox, who also drove in a pair of runs with a single that capped a four-run first inning, said, "I feel real great about hitting my first homer. It's a thrill that comes just once." Twins 3, Angels 2 Steve Brye's three-run homer in the sixth inning carried Minnesota to victory and within a game of the first-place Angels in the AL West. A walk to Joe Lis and a single by Eric Soderholm preceded Brye's shot over the left field wall off rookie Frank Tanana. California scored its runs in the seventh inning on a double by Bobby Valentine, a walk to Frank Robinson, Bob Oliver's single and Lee Stanton's grounder. Cubs 1, Pirates 0 Chicago managed only an unearned run off Jim Bullheads Are No. 1 in Iowa By The Associated I'ress Bullheads are everywhere in Iowa and are the No. 1 fish in popularity among the majority of fishermen. This is the time of year when bullheads can be easily caught and nightcrawlers are the choice bait. Fish the bullhead fairly close to shore and in the warmer or upper end of the lakes or bayous. Nearly all parts of the state have bullheads and at times all arc good fishing. When cleaning bullheads, be aware of the spines in the pectoral fins on either side of the fish and the spine in the dorsal fin on top of the fish. Since there are no teeth in the bullhead, you can safely put your fingers in its mouth First make a cut down the back around the dorsal fin. then cut down both sides of the fish just behind the gills and behind the side or pectoral fins, intersecting the cut on top. Next, cut through the backbone from the top and down about halfway through the fish. Grasp the fish by the head in one hand and the skinned portion with the other hand, break apart and the intestines will remain with the head. Grasp the skin just ahead and to one side of the dorsal fin with a pair of pliers and pull back. This should remove most of the skin on one side. Do the same with the skin on the other side. Most of the undesirable meat and skin of the stomach will also remain with the head portion. Wash and remove the top dorsal spine and the fish is ready for the skillet. Some spots with consistently good bullhead populations include: Rock Creek Lake, Jasper County: Lake MacBride, Johnson County; Union Grove Lake. Tama County: Pollmiller Lake near West Point; Sweet Marsh. Bremer County: Clear Lake; borrow pits and backwaters of the Des Moines River in Polk County: most northern Iowa gravel pits; Fast Okoboji. Also Spirit Lake; Black Hawk Lake. Sac County: Storm Lake. Buena Vista County; Lost Island Lake, Palo Alto County: Swan Lake. Carroll County: Meadow Lake and Orient Lake, Adair County: Willow Slough, Mills County; Big Creek Lake. Polk County.

SAY WHAT YOU WILL, IT JUST ISN'T RIGHT TO MAKE YOU COOK DINNER EVERY NIGHT Ladies, at least once a week tell him you're eating out at Rooker— but that's all the Cubs needed to send the Pirates tumbling down to their ninth setback in 11 games. Rick Monday and Jerry Morales singled in the first inning, with Monday making it to third when second baseman Rennie Stennett committed an error on the throw in. Then Williams delivered a sacrifice fly. From then on, Ken Frailing and Ray Burris did the job, scattering seven Pittsburgh hits. Giants 5, Astros 2 Chris Speier drove in three runs and Tom Bradley and Randy Moffitt teamed for a six-hitter to carry the Giants past Houston. Bradley baffled the Astros until Cesar Cedeno hit a run- scoring single in the sixth inning, which extended Cedeno's hitting streak to 12 games. Cedeno's RBI triple knocked Bradley out in the eighth. Yanks 6, Red Sox 1 George "Doc" Medich stifled Boston on four hits—one of them Bernie Carbo's homer with two outs in the ninth inning—and rode New York's six-run sixth inning to an easy victory over the Red Sox.

Iowa (AP)—The Iowa Hawkeyes will offer a new-old look Saturday as Bob Commings makes his debut as head football coach in the annual intersquad game that wraps up spring drills. Fans will have their first chance to see an overhauled defensive system and the "new" look of Commings' wing-T offense, which has been little used since Commings was a Hawkeye standout in Iowa's glory days of the'50s. The Iowa coaching staff completed dividing the squad Thursday aligning most of the top offensive backs on the Gold team, while the Black team got most of the best defensive backs. Bob Ousley was tabbed to quarterback the Golds, with Jim Jensen and Rod Wellington as .running.backs and split endI Bill Schultz as No. 1 passing target. Doug Reichard will quarterback the Blacks, and he'll have Mark Fetter, Royce Mix and Sid Thomas in his backfield. The Blacks' secondary will include Earl Douthitt, Jim Caldwell, Bob Elliot. Rick Penney and Bob Salter. "There's a lot of offense we don't run well or execute well yet." Commings said. "But the defense has made rapid progress." "Right now the defense is pretty far ahead of the offense," the rookie Iowa coach said. Injuries have been a problem during spring drills. Commmings said. Several key players have been sidelined and will not see action Saturday. Notable among those absent will be quarterback Butch Caldwell, who fractured several vertebrae during last Saturday's controlled scrimmage, and linebacker Andre Jackson.

"We'll have game-like conditions, although we won't kickoff or punt," Commings said. "We just haven't spent that much time on the kicking game this spring." Several position changes on both offense and defense were made by the Iowa coaching staff during spring drills. Jim Jensen, the Hawkeye's top ground gainer last year as a fullback, has been moved to halfback in the wing-T alignment. Mark Fetter, another former fullback, and cornerback Sid Thomas were also moved to halfback. The offensive line has been beefed up with the addition of former defensive tackle Tyrone Dye. and Steve Walker has been moved from strong safety to defensive end. Commings said spring drills have gone well and team attitude has been good, but the Hawkeyes are still busting assignments—we're not paying enough attention to small details." "We're fumbling entirely too much," Commings said. "Any time a player has the football in his hands he has a tremendous obligation to his team." Kickoff for the Saturday game is scheduled for 1 p.m. at Nile Kinnick Stadium. The Carroll Swim Team sign-up will be held Saturday afternoon, according to coach Mark Gronstal and assistant coach Mrs. Ellen Sernett. The Parents Club of the swim team will be in charge headed by Joe Dalhoff, president; Leon Oswald, vice-president; Estherline Blum, secretary-treasurer and Jim Shymanski, past president. Registration will take place between 1 p.m. and 3 p.m. in the West Gate Mall. This sign-up is for all former swim team members and prospective members wishing to tryout for the team. A member of the swim team Parent's Club will be there to accept registrations. According to Gronstal, a team membership of S2 is being collected to cover the cost of ribbons and other team expenses. New members should have had some swimming experience. Youngsters should be able to swim approximately 50 yards and older members 100 yards. Swimmers compete in five age groups: eight-and-under, 9-10, 11-12, 13-14 and 15 to 18. A swimmer will be placed in a Sroup according to their age as ot June 1. According to Dalhoff. the availability of tank suits may be limited this year so Dalhoff suggests that swimmers select their suits soon. "A swim team tank suit is not mandatory, but it will increase your swimming speed and give the team a look of uniformity," added Dalhoff. "Anyone wishing to order a suit can do so at the sign-up Saturday." Tryouts for eight-and-under swimmers will be held the first week in June Regular practice time will be 11:30 to 12:15 for youths 12-and-undcr and 9 a.m. to 10 p.m. for swimmers 13 and older Carroll is a member of the Iowa West Swim Conference and they finished third last year.
