Despite the conditions there were no records broken or tied. Until last night, the Cardinals had defeated Aledo in a dual meet, lost to Sherrard by two in a triangular and finished second m the 15-team Avon Invitational last week. Alexis took the lead early in the meet and displayed good balance to lead the rest of the way. The Cardinals were never really seriously threatened. Eight schools were represented in the meet with just one entry from each school allowed in each event. There were eight places with scoring on an 8-7-65-4-3-2-1 basis. 2-Mile Relay — ROVA (Givvs, Olson, Farrell, Erickson) Roseville, Alexis, .Warren, Sherrard, Winola, AlWood, Cambridge.

CSC Rallies for Victory What do you do when you go into the bottom of the seventh inning, the last inning, and trail by five runs, 8-3? You score as many runs as possible, naturally. And it helps if the opponents make it easy for you. This is what the Carl Sandburg Chargers did to take a 15-8 Arrowhead Conference game from Black Hawk East at H. T. Custer Park Monday afternoon. The Chargers scored a total of 12 runs in the seventh inning, but it took a lot of help from the Black Hawk East pitching staff. Sandburg scored its 15 runs in only 26 official times at bat. Moreover, the Chargers registered only five hits. The reason for this oddity in the statistics is simple. All of 19 Sandburg batters took first base on balls courtesy of the Black Hawk East pitchers. In the seventh inning alone, 11 Chargers walked to first. It took only three base hits, all singles, to bring in the 12 runs. When Sandburg took the lead in the last frame, it was the first time the Chargers had been in front in the game. Black Hawk East scored two runs in the top of the fourth inning to break the scoring ice. Sandburg came back with one run in the bottom r( the inning to make the sec 2-1. Then Black Hawk East ijiought five runs across the plate in the sixth to take a 7-1 edge. Two runs by Sandburg in the bottom of the sixth and one run by Black Hawk East in the top of the seventh made it an 8-3 game going into the last half of the last inning. Yates City Wins Its First Conference Baseball Title YATES CITY - Fred McMaster pitched his second 3-hit shutout of the season, a 6-0 victory over Elmwood, to give Yates City its first I.C.A.C. baseball crown. The Eagles finished with a 5-0 mark in the conference and are currently 6-1 for the season. McMaster allowed singles in the second, fourth and seventh innings and cut down the only Elmwood runner that came close to scoring in the second inning. McMaster struck out 11 and walked three. The Eagles scored a single run in the first inning when Jeff Blodgett was hit by a pitch, stole second and third base, and raced home on a wild pitch. Will Savers Be First GM in NFL? By IRA BERKOW NEA Sports Editor NEW YORK (NEA) - If busting one's gut is what it takes, then Gale Sayers will be the first black to become a general manager in the National Football League. "He has proved," said Ed McCaskey, vice president of the Chicago Bears, "that he can do almost anything he makes up his mind to do." Sayers recently surprised followers by taking a job as assistant athletic director of the University of Kansas, the school where he won All-America halfback honors in 1965. It seemed a strange thing to do. Oil the surface, it seemed that he was floundering or escaping.

CLUBS MADfc TO ORDER BUNKER LINKS COURSE OPEN 7 DAYS A WEEK - PHONE 343 -8818 1 "Magic," as he was called for his sleight-of-foot running with Ihe Bears, was finished as a player. He was forced to retire last season at age 29. He found that he could come back from three knee operations, but not a fourth. What now? He had prepared for the future. He said he was financially set because of good investments. But Sayers is not a man to luxuriate under the shade of a tree, fishing. He is a swirl of activity. He had been a licensed stockbroker for a top Chicago firm in the off-season. But Sayers found that the numbers on the electric scoreboard in the office were in action — nof him. He tried television, starting from the ground up with an interview show on a small Chicago station. Later, he did color on football telecasts for the Chicago CBS station. Yet this was stiU not enough motion for Magic, whose day often begins at 5 in the morning and ends at midnight, maybe. He was on the park board of the City of Chicago, was given a big black limousine and chauffeur. Perhaps he might have gone further in politics. But, no.- He also tried his hand working with jevenile delinquents at the Audy Home on the tough West Side. But his heart was still in football; perhaps he was not yet able to drown out the continuing echo of cheers from the football crowds. Still, he did not want to just hang around a football field and protract his shortened career; ti-rough others. He had an offer from a top NFL team to become backiield coach. He turned it down. He did accept the offer to come to Kansas. A big-name star returning to college, to immense himself in the mud of recruiting? Some may have seen it as an escape, in a way. He had marital problems in Chicago and is now separated from his wife, Linda. Or was it a return to the womb when he came back to the Kansas flatlands? It was, says Sayers, an opportunity to lay groundwork for a future job in the NFL, perhaps as a general manager. "There are no black g.m.'s," said Sayers. "At Kansas I'll be trying to trim the budget, be involved in ticket sales, deal with the coaches and the players, learn all elements of administration. Then if and when there's an opening in the pros, I'm ready. Some former athletes want to start at the top. That's why they fail. They aren't prepared. A black can blame it on prejudice if he fails. That won't be my excuse," The time must come, said Sayers and McCaskey and Jesse Jackson, black leader and friend of Sayers, when a black man will have an important executive post on an NFL team, iThere are non now. (Jackson recently held a press conference in which he called for a change in the thinking of professional sports owners and college sports administrators.) Who are the general managers now? Men like Sid Gillman of Houston and Jim Finks of Minnesota, who have spent their lives in football. Men like New Orleans' Dick Gordon (former astronaut), who have not. Or a man like Mugs Halas, whose old man owns the club ^Chicago). They all have one thing in common: their whiteness. When will the first black general manager emerge? McCaskey thinks in about 10 years. Sayers believes he may have a chance in two or three years. "Maybe," said McCaskey, "Gale knows something I don't." It is hard to discount what Sayers says. He said he wanted to be a stockbroker. He studied hard, passed the required test with high marks. He wanted to improve his public speaking (he had what he calls "a slow tongue," that is, bad dic- jtion). He attended a Dale Car- 'negie school, was selected the top student. In football, he was one of the most gifted runners ever. But his spirit was most dramatically shown after his first knee operation in 1968. He was fiercely dedicated to strengthening the knee in the off-season. And came back to lead the league in rushing. "When Gale shifts gears," said McCaskey, "he goes. And who can stop him?" (Newspaper Enterprise Assn.) Yates City scored three runs in the second. Bob Williams opened the inning with a single and stole second base. Scott McDonald followed with a walk and both runners advanced on a wild pitch. Mark Staggs reached base on a fielder's choice, scoring Williams. Mark Turner followed a stolen base by Staggs by hitting into a fielder's choice to score McDonald. Tom Staggs slammed a single to left to score Staggs and end the scoring for the inning. The Eagles added single tallies in the fifth and sixth innings. In the fifth, Fred McMaster opened with a single to right, advanced to second on a wild pitch, stole third and scored, on a sacrifice fly by Bob Williams. In the sixth, Mark Staggs opened with a single, stole second and scored on a 2-out double by Dennis Daley. Dan Bess, who went the first four innings, was credifeid with the win for Sandbiirg. Bi;adshaw was the losing pitcher. ' Dan Van Broker provided Sandburg with the best offensive output with two hits in two trips to the plate and three runs batted in. Tim Coley, Mark Wingo, and Duane Spillers all had a single base hit. . As a team. Black Hsfwk East knocked out seven hiisin 34 times at bat. Perret had three hits in as many trips ,to the plate. ' It was the third victory of the season for the Chargers, who have only one defeat. In the conference, Sandburg now posts a 2-1 record. The next scheduled game for the Chargers is an away game Wednesday afternoon. The Chargers are at conference foe Sauk Valley.
