11) _l3q|esbufi R (saister>Moil, Golt^^^ Soturdjay. April 14^ 1973 Streaks Defeat Canton '.I-I CANtDN Bouncing back ttm tt double loss at Pekin, the GitesbUfg Siher Streaks registered art M victory over tlie Canton Little Giants here Friday afternoon. The vicbory put Coach Bob Seal's charges over the .500 ^ mark for the season with the ^§ Streaks showing a ' won-loss record of 3-2. It was just the second defeat for the Little Giants, who have won five games. Beal praised the defensive play of Galesburg which did not commit an error. "We were sharp on defense, especially in the infield," Beal said. "We are starting to do the things that we have to do to go some place." Beal was also impressed with his pitchers—starter Tim Hayden and relievers Danny Scott and Bob Berry. "Tim looked good in the early innings but was a little wild after our big 5-run fifth," Beal explained. "I wanted to give our relievers some work anyway." Galesburg grabbed the lead in the first inning with a run and stayed on top as Hayden blanked the Little Giants for the first four innings. In the fifth inning, the Streaks padded their lead with a 5-run burst. Big hits in the inning were a 2-run triple by Jerry Blixt and a i -tnn single by Tony Nelson. After the Ibng wait, Hayden lost his radar and as a result, the home team scored three runs in the bottom of the fifth. However, Scott checked the rally and Galesburg added two insurance runs in the top of the seventh. Scott also ran into control trouble in tlje bottom of the seventh and Berry came on to retire the last two batters on strikes.

As the only two MWC schools in Illinois, the Knox-Monmouth contests are especially important. Both teams expressed their desire to represent Illinois Friday as the Siwash took tlie first game 4-3 and the Scots won the second 2-1. The only other games between the rivals will be a doubleheader at Khox May 5. However, the next game for the Siwash is at Northwestern Wednesday. Monmouth is host to MWC foe s;?' Coe College this afternoon. , ' Winning pitcher Jim Fennema %^ of Knox he ped his own cause in Jiv-* the first game by pounding <^ut ^it. three hits in three times at bat. It was also Fennema who scored the winning run in the top of the sixth inning. Knox had gotten three runs in the first frame, but Monmouth had come back to even the game at o -all in the bottom of the fourth. In the sixth, Fennema doubled and then took third on a wild pitch. An infield single by Nick George brought Fennema across the plate for the deciding run. Glen FritJB was the losing hurler for Monmouth. Fritz, who went the distance for the Scots, allowed, seven hits, four earned runs and eight bases on balls but struck out seven batters. Jeff Henderson had two base hits in four trips to the plate for the Siwash. Getting two hits each for the Scots were Steve Rucckert, Bill Wagner and Fritz. The second game of the afternoon was also decided by a sin gle run. Knox scored one in the first inning, and then Monmouth tied the game in the sec ond and Won it in the third. The Scots' Wagner singled in the bottom of the third, moved to second on a fielder's choice, stole third, and then scored on On the mound, Fennema gave'an infield bouncer by Dennis Up eight hits, and one earned Plummer. Neither team scored run while striking out three bat- in the remaining five innings, so the Scots won 2-1. Monmouth's Butch Avery was credited with the win, while Kelly Cohoon took the loss. Gary WolUtz led the Knox offense with two hits in three at bats. Avery aided his own cause with the same performance.

Woman Tries Out When the Philadelphia Eagles held an open tryout camp at Veterans Stadium in Philadelphia Friday, Joan Kros of Merrick, Long Island was there to try out along with several hundred men. Joan, who was the only female at the tryout, was allowed to watch by Eagles coach Mike McCormick but was politely refused in her attempt to make the team. By JOAN RYAN WASHINGTON (NEA) Archie Bunker has been twitting his Polish son-in-law with the latest )oke circulating in the sports world. "Hey, Meathead, did you hear about the Polish track meet?" And just in case the news was stifled in your area, let me re- ca^ Archie's joke. Professional track, touted to the public as a mapificent escape from amateur batching, made its debut in Los Angeles a few week ago. Thirty stars, who were corralled into signing pro contracts by Mike O'Hara, appeared in the first meet which appeared to have been scripted by the Keystone Kops and the Three Stooges. And the officials were a resurrested cast fr>om The Original Amateur Hour. Nearly 13,000 fans forked over $4 to $8.50 for tickets to the event, and for their money they got average performances ^nd poor times from the newly pro- fesskmai athletes. The officials contributed an element of confusion surpassed only by a flock of snow geese flying south for the summer. The mile run was the expected high point of the event, matching arch rivals Jim Ryun and Kip Keino, but the result was anything but conclusive. Keino was 20 yards in front of Ryun when the gun sounded prematurely to mark the last lap. By the time Keino got word of the extra lap, Ryun was closing the gap. "I lost an my momentum and I jogged home," Keino said as he finished with a mere 12-yard edge and a 4:06 time. Ryun blamed his poor sitowing on too much promotional activity for the newly formed International Track Association. In the 500-meter run, Lee Evans bounded to the finishing tape and suddenly realized that his race, too, had one more lap to go. Throwing the tape over his head, he continued around the track. Larry James and Vince Matthews, who had failed to count the laps, simply stopped when they came to the misplaced tape. The mile run and the 500- meter race were the ultimate in officiating miscues, but the 60- fits that equaled the hiss vif lava on an Icelandic island. It ended with a three-way photo finish, but the victory was first awarded to Warren Edmondson on the basis of the ITA's new "headfirst" rule. Amateur competition judges the torso positi'on to the tape, but the ITA rewards he man whose head crosses the tape line first. Edmonson won by a nod, but the $500 first prize money was divided three ways to cool the tempers of the im who tied but k)st. It was discovered later that even the referee didn't know about the headfirst rule. Despite its shaky start, professional track is off and running. Even a practice meet in Pocatello, Idaho, drew almost 11,000 patrons. And the pros are courting fans with gimmicky races to soften the hard-cor« stuff. Bob Hayes of the Dallas Cowboys claims his title, "The World's Fastest Human," because of his gold medal from the Olympics. He will be featured in the "King of-the Hill" competition, a 60-yard dash with another pro football player. Vic Washington challenged him in San Francisco, Mike Garrett in San Diego. Publicity man Al Franken said there were plans for continuing kicky relay teams like the one featured in Los Angeles' Sports Arena. It was an unlikely combination of an airlines stewardess. Sen.

And Archie Bunker.got in one last dig when he tdld his son-in-law, "The safest event <rf each meet will be the mile race against the timed pacing light.

DiMaggio Likes Golf hut Baseball His First Love By MILTON RICHMAN UPI Sports Editor NEW YORK (UPI) - Joe DiMaggio plays a lot of golf these days, nearly as much as some of the pros but there i^n't any question where his heart still belongs. One guess? Some time back, a national magazine reported Joe D seldom goes to baseball games anymore, and his interest in the game in general haa fallen off to next to nothing, but he' vigorously denies it. "I get a big kick out of playing golf," he says, "but it isn't anywhere near the same with me as playing baseball. I, loved playing baseball, 1 enjoyed it. That was my life,; and if I had to do It over again, ! I'd do the same thing." It has been 22 years now since Joe DiMaggio laid down his bat for good with the Yankees, and apart from his I hair which was starting to go gray even then the old Yankee Clipper doesn't look or act very old at aU. His weight is the same it was during most of his heyday and the day he retired—195 pounds on the button. He walks with that same quick long stride that came to be his trademark and very little that happens anywhere in baseball escapes his notice. "Did you see that crowd they had in Cleveland the other day?" he said. "Over 74,000. Fantastic! It made you feel, good to see a thing like that,]Hughes Sports Network, work-iSenators had to go out and get We used to have that kind of Ing with the president of the themselves a big name, too, crowd when we played the company, Richard Bailey and and Short wouid've settled for Indians.

He Redskins hired the ktle Viiicc league club, I'd rather not say; does some public relations for Lombardi. That meant that tiie wliieh one, and I said no. I; don't regret it. I never did want a managing job. I just didn't care for it. I had a stomach condition and I didn't want to aggravate it. Playing was great. I enjoyed that phase of it, but I'd never enjoy managing and I know it. Some Maybe that was because the two men never really had any personal dealings, or because even Charlie Finley knows you just don't go around firing a Joe DiMaggio every day. That, incidentally, is one of the reasons some club owners people think a manager has an'are reluctant to hire super easy job, but I don't." Only Real Connection DiMaggio's only real connection with baseball since his retirement was as thu-d-basel super-stars in the first place.

Everything he wins he turns right over to charity. "I go strictly by the rules," he says. "Before I play, I announce I'm not competing for the money, and that I am an amateur."
