Twins Win on Homer By The Associated Press The plan, Frank Tanana figured, was for Larry Hisle to put the ball a few feet in front of the plate. He figured about 400 feet too short. Hisle was batting in the bottom of the eighth inning for Minnesota. Ahead of him, Joe Lis had singled. And behind him was the meat of the Twins' batting order. Tanana and the rest of the California Angels owned a 1-0 lead. It figured Hisle would be bunting. . .which is what he did to the first pitch, pushing it foul. "I thought he was going to bunt again." Tanana said. "I threw him an up-and-away fastball that didn't have much on it." But Hisle put everything he had into it, driving the ball 421 feet into the right field stands for a two-run homer that carried the Twins to a 2-1 victory over the Angels. "There's no way I dreamed he'd hit it that far." Tanana said. In other American League games, Baltimore blanked Boston 6-0 in a rain-shortened six-inning contest. Oakland mauled the Chicago White Sox 10-4. Kansas City topped Texas 6-4. Detroit downed Cleveland 4-3 and the New York Yankees edged Milwaukee 3-2 Twins 2, Angels 1 "I was expecting a fastball 'cause he was only trying to get me out. what with Rod Carew and Tony Oliva following me." Hisle said of Tanana. "And he threw me the fastball, apparently thinking I was gonna bunt again. I got the homer in a hi-and-run situation." But why the switch? "It was a bit of a gamble." admitted Twins Manager Frank Quilici. "But it sure worked, didn't it?" Tanana, wht also was victimized last week by a Minnesota homer that turned victory into defeat, added that "I'd throw him the same pitch again—but with more on it." Orioles 6, Red Sox 0 Mike Cuellar checked Boston on six hits and Tommy Davis clubbed two homers, driving in four runs in a game trimmed to six innings by rain and enlivened by the appearance of the first Juergen's 88 is Tops in District ODEBOLT — Carroll's Holly Juergens captured medalist honors here Friday in the girls district golf tournament as Sioux City schools — East. North and Heelan dominated play. Juergens, only a sophomore, fired a 46-42 for an 88 over the Sac County Golf and Country Club and now will compete individually at the state meet next week at Charles City. Juergens would have shot a 41 on the back nine, but incorrectly added up her score. Runner-up honors went to Joan Marten of Denison with a 92 and she also advances to the state tournament. East won the team title with a 402 and North was second with a 410. Those two automatically qualify for state play and Heelan has a chance as they finished with a 423. | Major Leagues By The Associated Press National League East W L Pet.

A's 10, White Sox 4 "We haven't had too many like that this season," said AJ- vin Dark after his A's rolled over Chicago on the strength of a four-run first inning and a six-run second. RayFosse's three-run triple—on which the White Sox' Buddy Bradford broke his collarbone trying for the catch— highlighted the first-inning burst. Joe Rudi's two-run single and Bill Melton's two-run error were the big plays in the second inning. Royals 6, Rangers 4 Fred Patek's two-run triple capped a four-run second-inning that sent the Royals past Jim Bibbv and the Rangers, overcoming Texas, 3-0 lead. George Brett drove in the other Kansas City runs with doubles in the fourth and sixth innings. When Texas scored its fourth run and had the tying runs on base with one out in the seventh inning, Doug Bird took over on the mound for winner Bruce Dal Canton. Heelan will go on to state action if their score is better than some other second-place district school. Carroll finished fourth with a 424. Besides Juergens with an 88. Deb Osborn fired a 102.

Lead to Courtney in Golf FORT WORTH, Tex. (AP) — A trio of superstars moved into contention, but it was a self-styled scrambler, a Wintu Indian and a former football player who led the way today into the third round of the $250,000 Colonial National Open. "Even Ben Hogan can't hit all the greens on this course— you've got to be able to chip it close and make the putts," said Chuck Courtney, recognized as one of the tour's top scramblers. Courtney stripped four shots from Colonial's begrudging par 70 Friday and moved into a one-shot lead at the halfway point of pro golf's first designated tournament. A non-winner this year. Courtney's 36-hole total of 7066—136 was good for a one stroke advantage over first- round leader Hale Irwin. a former University of Colorado football star, and Rod Curl, a personable Wintu Indian. Jack Nidklaus, Lee Trevino and defending champion Tom Weiskopf made bids for the $50.000 top prize. Weiskopf with a 68 that propelled him into fourth place at 138. Nicklaus. despite dumping a wedge shot into the lake near the 18th green, shot a 69 after an opening 71 and headed a group of six at par 140. TOURNEY ON As of Saturday morning, the Breda slow pitch softball tournament was still scheduled to get under way Sunday. May 19. according to tournament manager Bob Fasbender. Daily Record Norman Lowers .ERA to 1.59 By The Associated Press In a hospital hundreds of miles from the Houston Astrodome, a 78-year-old father of eight listened to a ball game on his transistor radio. At the ballpark. Fred Norman tried to ease his father's pain with a well-pitched game Friday night. "When I was born, he was 47 years old," Norman, 32, said of his father. "He always comes to see me pitch. I wish he had been here tonight, but he just couldn't make it." The youngest Norman, however, nearly did make it. He pitched 8 1-3 innings of eight-hit baseball, striking out five and walking one while recording a 4-2 victory over the Houston Astros. In other National League games, the St. Louis Cardinals trimmed the Chicago Cubs 9-8, the New York Mets blanked the Montreal Expos 5-0, the San Diego Padres downed the San Francisco Giants 7-3, the Atlanta Braves topped the Los Angeles Dodgers 5-3 in 11 innings and the Philadelphia P h i 1 1 i e s-Pittsburgh Pirates game was rained out. Norman, over 45 1-3 innings, has surrendered just 32 hits and nine runs while striking out 45 and walking only 10. The victory raised his won-lost record to 3-3 and lowered his earned run average to 1.59. Houston Manager Preston Gomez didn't seem especially impressed after his team's seventh consecutive loss. "We've got no hitting, that's all,"Gomez said. But the Astros didn't get much fielding, either, as errors brought home three of Cincinnati's runs. Two scored on Houston pitcher Claude Osteen's wild throw to the plate in the fourth. Doug Rader's fifth home run of the season broke Norman's string of 24 innings without an earned run. Cards 9, Cubs 8 Ted Simmons drove in three runs with a first-inning homer, then broke an 8-8 tie with a sacrifice fly in the eighth inning to carry the Cardinals past Chicago. The Cubs rallied from a 6-1 deficit to come within 6-5, and after St. Louis made it 8-5, Chicago scored three runs in their half of the eighth to tie it. Billy Williams had four runs batted in for the Cubs—two of them on his fifth-inning home run. Don Kessinger contributed four hits for Chicago and drove in two runs. Mets 5, Expos 0 "It's a start," said New York right-hander Tom Seaver after h i s 13-strikeout four-hitter blanked Montreal. Seaver, last season's Cy Young Award winner, had slumped to a 1-4 record and a 3.5 earned run average. But Friday's game may have marked a turnaround. Rusty Staub stroked a two-run homer on loser Balor Moore in the third inning for all the runs Seaverneeded. Padres 7, Giants 3 Nate Colbert's fifth career grand slam home run helped San Diego defeat San Francisco and end a nine-game losing string. The blast capped a five-run Padres first inning. Enzo Hernandez singled and Enzo Hernandez hit a sacrifice fly to bring home the other two San Diego runs. Bobby Bonds had a two-run double and Ken Rudolph's single drove in the Giants' runs. Braves 5, Dodgers 3 Pinch-hitter Mike Lum, given life when Ron Cey dropped his foul fly in the llth inning, drove a two-run double to center field to score the winning runs for Atlanta. Jimmy Wynn drove in two runs for the Dodgers with a triple and a double. The Dodgers' nine-game winning streak was stopped. Police Department Two-Car Accidents- Cars driven by Gerald H. Fleshner and Allen A. Schrad, both of Carroll, were in collision at the intersection of U.S. 30 and Boylan Av. Friday, police reported. The front of the Schrad vehicle was in collision with the rear of the Fleshner vehicle as both were westbound on the highway, and the Fleshner vehicle stopped for traffic. Schrad was charged with speeding. Cars driven by LaVerne J. Fehring and Martin F. Hoffman, both of Carroll, collided at the intersection of Main and Bluff Streets Friday, police reported. The Hoffman vehicle was in collision with the rear of the Fehring vehicle as the Fehring vehicle was making a U-turn at the intersection, police said. Hoffman was charged with speeding. No injuries were reported in either accident. HIGHWAY PATROL One-Car Accident— A car driven by Edward Schlichte, Audubon, went out of control on a curve about a quarter mile south of Halbur early Saturday morning and overturned in the ditch, Iowa State Trooper Donald Dreessen, Carroll, reported. Schlichte was charged with failure to have control of his vehicle by Dreessen and deputy sheriff Doug Bass. No injuries were reported. ST ANTHONY REGIONAL HOSPITAL Admissions May 16— James M.

"It was a war. no other way to describe it." said police commander Peter Hagen after officers attacked the house, firing volley after volley of tear gas. shotgun and M16 rifle rounds. They were met with heavy return fire some of it thought to be from .50-caliber machine guns. Tear gas grenades apparently sparked the fire that burned the house. A flak-jacketed officer with a gas mask said. "It was just like Vietnam." The battle, which was televised live on Los Angeles stations, followed a raid earlier in the day at another suspected SLA hideout. But the house was found to be empty. A woman who emerged from the house after it caught fire said there were five other persons inside — a black man. a black woman and three white women. "They held me. they held me," the woman was heard to say as she was taken away to an ambulance. She was not identified and appeared to have suffered gunshot wounds. Mary Carr, 52. told police her daughter lived in the house and allowed five persons who arrived at 2 a.m. Friday to spend the night after they offered to pay $100. Mrs. Carr said she went to the house Friday. "A white lady had a belt on with a pistol. . .she slapped at the pistol and smiled up at me," Mrs. Carr said. Mrs Carr said she left and notified police. Police reported later two vans that may have have been used by the SLA members were discovered parked nearby. It-was not known if Mrs. Carr's daughter, Minnie Lewis, 33, was the woman who ran from the house. Officers with lights poked through the debris through the night, finding a few handguns, a shotgun and small pipe- bombs. Times Herald, Carroll, la. ^ Saturday, May 18, 1974 2 Farm Service Center Plan is on Schedule WASHINGTON (AP) -A controversial plan by the Agri- cultute department to consolidate field offices of four rnajor agencies into "service centers" to give farmers one-stop service is proceeding on target, officials say. The plan was announced Nov. 21 and immediately drew protests from many members of Congress and local officials that it would result in USDA offices being closed in many counties. Although department officials concede some counties will not have full service centers representing all agencies, they say the plan will not mean widespread abandonment of existing offices. Joseph R. Wright Jr.. assistant secretary of agriculture for administration, said rumors that the consolidation plan had been abandoned were not true. But there have been problems in getting full-scale consolidation plans approved at the state level, he told a reporter. Constlidation of county field offices in the USDA network has been going on for manyyears. But the service center concept announced last .fall served notice that consolidation would be unde taken on a broad scale, with no county immune to the possibility of having some of its facilities combined with those in others. Wright said no new service center has yet begun operation as result of the new plan, bu he estimated that about 100 would be functioning bz June 30 and that by the end of this year about 500 would be in operation. The plan involves these USDA agencies: the Agricultural Stabilization and Conservation Service, the Soil Conservation Service, the Farmers Home Administration and the Federal Crop Insurance lorpo- ration. As announced, the four agencies employ upwards of 34.000 fulltimesSeaep.o In all. USDA has aboutb2u7kkko5 ployees. with 80 per cent of them working in approximately 15.000 field offices. Wright said he could not estimate ow many service centers might finally be set up. but other officials have said about 2.000 might be established when the plan is complete. Deaths, Funerals MRS.
