However, Lockport's pitching (alls off sharply after Ballantir.e and it might be a struggle for the tram in the final series. Under state rules, a pitcher can be used only nine innings each day. All games are seven innings. I the Porters gain the semifinals Friday, they will be faced with a problem because the champion ship game is the afternoon of the same day. It means Ballantine could be used only two innings of the semifinal game if they want to keep him eligible for a full seven-inning stint in the title contest.

Powell, a 22-year-old left-handed itter who has learned to harness his Bunyanesque strength, drove bis two-run shot off 23-game winner Ralph Terry in the fifth inning. It was his ninth homer of the season and 27th run batted in to go with a respectable .292 batting average. Powell's homer gave the Orioles a Ha-game edge over New York.

SIU Runners In National Track Meet CARBONDALE — Hoping to ready themselves for next week's NCAA championship meet at Albuquerque, N.M., five members oj Southern Illinois University': squad will compete this weekend in the first annual U.S. Track and Field Federation meet at Houston, Tex. The Salukis, who are by-passing Jiis week's Central Collegiate Con- lerence meet at the University of Notre Dame in favor of the Houston meet to alleviate possible traveling difficulties next week, will be represented in both national meets by sprinter Jim Stewart, Raleigh, N.C.; hurdler Bob Green, Washington, D.C.; shot puttei George'Woods, Sikeston, Mo.; and distance runners Bill Cornell and Brian Turner of England. Cornell and Turner, juniors who placed second In last year's NCAA meet, figure to be Southern's only first place contenders while the sophomore trio of Stewart, Green and Woods will be hoping to rank among the finalists. Runnerup behind Oregon's Dyrol Burleson in the mile run a year ago, Cornell may bid for former teammate Jim Dupree's 880-yard title this season after the latter was sidelined due to scholastic difficulties at SIU. While Cornell's best time for an open half mile has been only a 1:50.9, he was officially timed in 1:47.1 over the same distance while anchoring a victorious SaluM, sprint medley team at the Drake Relays. Turner, however, has one of the naton's best efforts in the two-mile event, an 8:46.3 at the recent Cal Relays, and is considered one of the favorites in the three-mile run where he turned in a 13:53.9 last year. Stewart has qualified for the dash events with :9.6 and :21.4 performances this season and Coach Lew Hartzog feels both Green and Woods are now capable of peak efforts which would earn points in the classy meets. Green has been timed in :14.1 seconds in each of his last four outings while Woods has consistently moved up to 58 feet, 9% inches in the shot put after having been hampered by a series of injuries.
