Rules Against Girls in LL u PITTSBURGH (UPI) - Federal Court Judge Barron P McCune ruled Thursday night that the Avonworth Baseball Conference (ABC) had every right to bar a lO^year-old girl from playing Little League baseball. "I have serious doubts that the 5th and the 14th Amendments apply to situations of this kind," McCune said. "I doubt if there's any unconstitutional discrimination in this instance or discrimination of any kind, for that matter." The judge said he based his decision on the fact that Bicycle Season is Here!

Main Galesburg baseball is a contact sport and that other legal precedents had guaranteed.women equal rights only in such non-contact sports such as golf, tennis and skiing. The parents of Pamela Magill went to court when the ABC refused to let her play. They alleged she was being discriminated against. Six members of the ABC board of directors said the 45 pound girl's admission to Little League play would downgrade the team she joined talent-wise, inhibit the play, complicate the task of getting fathers to volunteer for coaching and managing duties, and greatly embarrass the boys who had to siit on the bench while a girl was on the playing field.

Cubs Beaten 74; Carlton Gets Victory CHICAGO (UPI)-AH in all it was.not a sparkling home stand for the Chicago Cubs, who will risk their leadership of the National League's Eastern Division on the road now until July 17, opening tonight at San Diego. The Cubs could do no better than break even in the 10- game stand, splitting four games with the New York Mets, taking two of three from Montreal and then losing two of three to Philadelphia. Thus with .500 baseball their lead in the division eroded. But the bright spot might be that the Cubs have done better on the road this season than at home, winning 25 of 43 in foreign parks and only 23 of 40 at home. Yesterday Cy Young award winner Steve Carlton of the Phillies backed up his statement that "I'm always lucky" when he gave up ill hits and still held on for a 7-4 "win, only his eighth against nine losses. Last year he won 27 games. Carlton's big play came in the eighth after a single by Billy Williams, an error on Ron Santo's grounder, Jim Hickman's triple and singles by Carmen Panzone and Don Kessinger had scored three unearned runs, left two runners on base and brought Adrian Garrett to the plate. Garrett, who represented the tying run and who had hit two homers in 28 times at bat this season, struck out. Carlton struck out seven other Cubs and walked only one. The Phillies meanwhile piled up the most hits and most runs allowed in any game this season by Rick Reuschel, 10 hits and 5 runs in 4 2-3 innings, to give the burly youngster his fifth loss against nine wins. lfcgister-Mafl| SPORTS Galesburg, 111., Friday, July 6, 1973 Page 18 "I was pleased with my game, today," Goalby said, "because I haven't been playing well enough—good enough, I guess, but not well enough to really score. "I guess this is the first time I ever had two eagles in one round," he said. Morley, who shot a 77 in the qualifying round played in strong winds was thankful for the gentle breezes Thursday and said "the greens are in excellent shape;" His 66 was his. lowest round of the year. Allin, 18th on the money list -with $62,766, said he liked the. shorter Tripoli Country Club course where the GMO was held last year. He finished in a four-way tie for second in that one. "But the conditions, the course and the weather were perfect today," he said. "That's what it takes to score well—a good course and those conditions." Zieglef credited veteran tour pro Doug Ford for. bringing his game back to life. He said Ford, has been working with his swing since the GMO a year ago and the tutoring "has made all the difference in the world." Ford shot a 72, s one stroke more than defending champion Jim Colbert. Dave Stockton; who won the first GMO in 1068. Was tied with seven others at 69 and Deane Beman, the. 1970 champion, was in a 10-way tie at 68. Homero Blancas stood alone at 67. Oliver Eludes Tag Pittsburgh Pirates' Al Oliver (16) comes across home plate as he eludes the attempted tag by Cardinals catcher Ted Simmons in their game at St. Louis Thursday. Umpire Shag Crawford gives the safe sign as Oliver scored all the way from second base on a Richie Hebner single. Pirates defeated the Cards 3 -2.
