Star jjjtj&^^z .^^^JK. ^^^^^^, _^^^^^ ^^gMjj^ AL Decides to Slow Up Expansion By CHARLES CHAMBERLAIN Associated Press Sports Writer CHICAGO (AP) ~ The American League, which made tracks over the National League In expanding to 12 team;: for 19(59, now Is slowed down in those tracks, The Nationals were miffed Svhen the Americans voted last winter without mutual consultation to admit Seattle and re, treaded Kansas City to membership next season. . It forced th9 Nationals to ad• vance their expansion plans, or.; iginally targeted for not later than 1971, to 1969 also. Thay now .are pondering the selection of two new cities from among San .Diego, Milwaukee, Dallas-Fort .Worth, Buffalo and Montreal. The Nationals will nteet In mid-May presumably to vote on the two new franchises. "... Until this is dorte, the Americans consider themselves stymied in their decision to split their league in two six-team divisions next year with playoffs to determine the circuit's pennant winner and World Series representative. At an American League owners meeting Thursday, President Joe Cronin said that the . brass wants divisional play in 1969 but scheduling action has been delayed pending the National's move. "It would be difficult if we went ahead with a division setup not knowing what the National's two new teams will be—or even if there will be two new teams/' said Cronin. "So, in deference to the National League we took no action on the length of a 1969 schedule or composition of the divisions. "We will have representatives meet with the National League before its ifey meeting mutually to iron out problems we all are cognizant. of.. The American League then will meet on May 23 in Chicago to consider further plans for 1969." ftoufofi and Hairr Are Selected By RALPH ROUTON Star Sportswriter HHS golf coach Jim Jordan announced earlier this week that Hope's representatives to the District 4-AA championships tomorrow will be Terry Hairr, senior, and Ralph Routon, sophomore. The two were chosen by qualifying rounds held since the last regularly scheduled match, and they will also participate in the state championships to be held in Little Rock on May 10. The Hope team finished 4th in the district meet last year. Hairr is in his fourth year playing on the golf team, and this is his first time to play in the district tournament, Routon, in his second year, participated in the post-season events last year as a freshman, The golfers, with a season mark of 4-6, go for the title on the tough 6,600 yard, par 72 layout on the tight Magnolia Country Club course. On sixteen of the eighteen holes the roughs on both sides of the fairway are taken up by large clusters of trees, After a somewhat down year in athletics, HHS has come up with a crackerjack baseball team, Presently the squad, coached by BUI Lawrence and Jim Jordan, is sporting a 6-0 record.

Thomas, saying he is spokesman for some 30 or 40 Negro athletes at MSU, led a delegation that met with Athletic Director Biggie Munn and John Fuzafc, MSU faculty representative to the Big Ten Conference. No football workout was scheduled today, but Coach Duffy Daugherty said 15 or 20 Negro athletes left practice Thursday to attend the grievance meeting with Munn. A game- type scrimmage is set for Saturday. Complaints include a lack of Negro coaches, academic counseling which the Negroes say is designed "for blacks to place them in courses where they will maintain eligibility" and a lack of Negroes employed In jobs at Jenison Fieldhouse, the intramural building, ticket office and ice arena. Another grievance was that MSU discourages Negroes from participating in baseball and some other sports. The black athletes also complained that there are no Negro doctors or trainers to treat athletes, there is no Negro cheer leader and the athletic counselor should have a Negro assistant. John Hannah, MSU president, said he had been given a set of the demands earlier this week but was away from campus until Thursday. Hannah was leaving today for a meeting of the U.S. Civil Rights Commission, of which he is chairman, and will return May 2. He said, "I will be happy to meet with them upon my return." He pointed out that Don Coleman, a Negro and former All-American football lineman, recently, was hired as an assistant football coach. MSU, which has an enrollment of 37,000, has been noted for some of its outstanding Negro athletes.

RATLIFF DALLAS, Tex. (AP) - A tough course and difficult play- Ing conditions don't worry the golf tour half as much as balky putters. In fact, Gary Player, the man from South Africa who has gotten rich in American golf, says there's just no need to even talk about high winds that do things with your ball when your putting is on the beam. He illustrated his point by the four-under-par 66 that showed he was leading the $100,000 Byron Nelson Golf Classic by one stroke going into the second round. He got solid backing in giving putting the major emphasis by four fellows who were just behind Mm. Miller Barber of Shermaa, Tex.; Harold Hennlng of South Africa, and Jack Montgomery of Fort Worth, Tox,, all shot 67 and each told about how their putters put them over. Barber got his three birdies with putts of 18, 35 and 30 feet. Henning used only 28 putts to go around the 7,086-yard Preston Trail course that was swept by winds ranging up to 30 miles per hour. Montgomery had two 50-footers in his birdie string. Illness and Injury took a bigger toll than the tough course and high wind as eight players dropped out. Barber Just Stroke Under the Leader DALLAS, Tex. (AP)- Miller Barber of Texarkana, Ark., put together a flawless three-under- par 67 Thursday and Is only one stroke back of the leader in the $100,000 Byron Nelson Golf Classic. Barber hit 17 greens in regulation figures. He made three birdies and did not card a bogey. Barber knocked in birdie putts of 18, 35 and 30 feet. Barber, Harold Henning and Jack Montgomery enter today's second round one stroke back of Gary Player. R. H. Sikes of Springdale, A^k., was also among the leaders despite carding a 72. He had nines of 35-37.

Forward Pass Is Off and Running Again LEXINGTON, Ky. (AP) Fresh from an easy victory in the Blue Grass Stakes at Keeneland, Calumet Farm's Forward Pass was off and running again today. This time Forward Pass was going to a stall at Louisville's Churchill Downs where he can catch his breath for the May 4 Kentucky Derby. The on-and-on colt carried Derby weight of 126 pounds Thursday as he breezed to a five-length win in the I'/a mile Blue Grass. He was timed in 1:47 4-5. In winning the Blue Grass, Forward Pass beat eight other Derby eligibles, with Bwamazon Farm's T.V. Commercial second, Saddle Rock Farm's Francie's Hat third and Cragwood Stable's Alley Fighter fourth. The Blue Grass didn't test all the top Derby eligibles however, but this Saturday's Stepping Stone Purse at Churchill Downs will pit at least three more against each other. Listed as definite starters for the Stepping Stone are Kentucky Sherry, Captain's Gig and Subpet. Expected to complete the field for the seven-furlong race are Trouble Brewing, Blarney Kiss and Tampa Trouble. Meanwhile in New York, trainer Hirsh Jacobs announced the withdrawal of Wise Exchange from the Derby field. Jacobs said the colt just wasn't ready for the iVi -mile Derby. White Sox Haven't Won a Game By HAL BOCK Associated Press Sports Writer The White Sox still haven't won any baseball games this season, and the slump is keep* ing Chicago Manager Eddie Stanky in terrific shape. Stanky spent 20 minutes walking briskly from foul line to foul line in Minnesota's Metropolitan Stadium Thursday, swinging a leaded bat and mulling over his club's latest loss— a 3*2 toughie against the Twins, He started his post-game stroll routine last Saturday when the Sox dropped their seventh straight. Now the streak Is up to 10 for winless Chicago, and Stanky is still walking. In Thursday's only other gamo, the Chicago Cubs whipped Atlanta 5-2 as Ron Santo poked a pair of home runs. All other major league teams had the day off. "How am I holding up?" Stanky said, repeating a newsman's question. "Great." Then he strolled off to the trainer's room to lie down for several more minutes. It was the kind of loss that required long meditation. Chicago ace Gary Peters allowed just three hits— but all of them in a row in the third inning when the Twins got all their runs. "The way we're going," Peters said, "you make one bad pitch, and it costs you." And what made it even tougher for Stanky to swallow was that an old teammate from his New York Giant days was the hero for the Twins. Rubber-armed Al Worthington came out of the bullpen and saved Jim Perry's victory. Worthington loaded the bases with none out in the seventh on two singles and a walk, then struck out Pete Ward, Tommy Friday, April 28, 19*8 Latff Might By THE ASSOCIATED TOKYO - Hidemori Tsujinfo» to, 134V 2 , Japan, knocked dut BabyCassius, 131, LosAngeies, 7, ^ TUCUMAN, Argentina - Ra* mon La Cruz, 148, Argentina, outpointed Angel Osuna, 148, Argentina, 10 4 PORTLAND, Maine - George Johnson, 165, Trenton, N.J,, out- pointed Bobby Warthem, 165, BufMo, N.Y., 10; Leo DiFiore, 132, Portland, outpointed Henry "Kid" Wickham, 132, West Bux. ton, Maine, 10, MCKEESPORT, Pa. - Doug Agin, 142'/ 2 , Steubenville, Ohio, outpointed Adrian Davis, 14!%, Washington, D.C., 8, LOS ANGELES - Hedge mon Lewis, 145, Hollywood, Calif., knocked out Jose Valenzuela, 145, Tijuana, Mexico, 5.

The Twins' three-run rally started with two out when Perry walked on a 3-2 pitch. Cesar Tovar and Tony Ollva followed •,"ith doubles and Harmon Killebrew singled. The White Sox scored twice in the fifth when Peters, Ken Berry and Ward singled and Davis delivered a sacrifice fly. Chicago left 11 runners on base and one manager in the outfield. Santo's two homers drove in three runs and supported Ferguson Jenkins' seven-hitter as the Cubs trimmed the Braves. Atlanta's only runs came on homers by Bob Tillman and Felipe Alou. Santo connected with the bases empty in the fourth against Ken Johnson and then sparked a three-run rally with his second shot in the eighth. 1^^ *• 1 1^1 £atY-Lr"G J i7 J-C? JuJfcv.19 , I2STC.
