Among them are Roxana, East St. Louis, Dupo, Cahokla, Lincoln of East St. Louis with Belleville a question mark. Some of the other teams entered are Cent- ralta, Mount Vernon, West Frankfort, Harrlsburg, Herrin, DuQuoln, Murphysboro, Plnck- neyville, Sparta, Anna- Jones- bora, Metropolis, McCleansboro, Zlegler, Elkvllle, Eldorado, Johnston City, Nashville, Ches t'er and Christopher. Christopher is the defending champion, winning last year's meet with a total of 20W points. Cahokla came in second with 18 points. Five of last year's teams totaled 15 or more points in a very close scramble for first place honors. Here are the existing records for the Hurst Bush Relays: 100-yard dash— :10.0.5 (Colvis, Chester). 220-yard dash— 22.4 (Colvis, Chester, and Harris, Lincoln). 440-yard dash — 51.8 (Satin* ders, Marion). 880-yard run — 2:01.7. Mile run— 4:33.6. 120-yard high hurdles — 15.3 (Jones, Centralia, and Barnett, Harrisburg). 180-yard low hurdles — 20.2 (Gleghorn, Sparta). Broad jump— 21 feet, 9 inches (Gleghorn, Sparta). 880-yard relay— 1:35.3 (Mount Vernon). MUe relay— 3:36.8 (Lincoln). Shot put— 64 feet, 2 inches (Bauer, Benton).

Several of the records are in danger. Alton's 880 and mile relay teams have better times than what is currently listed. B. B. Gater, Alton's state champion in the 100 and 220-yard dashes, has bettered the current record times in the 100 and 220. He has done 9.9 in the century and 21.9 in the 220. Both times came in the triangular meet with Vashon and Beaumont last weekend. John Trowbrldge did the 880 in 1:59.7 Tuesday at East St. Louis and he also ran the mile In 4:32.0 against Beaumont and Vashon. The Redbird 880 relay team has chalked up a 1:30.7. this season while the mile relay foursome hit 3:31.1. The shotput and discus marks of Benton's and John Bauer seem out of reach. The pole vault mark of 12 feet, 8V4 inches could be reached by Alton's Ed Dancy although the best he has ever done is 12 feet, 7H inches. The Redbird's sophomore whiz, George Hunt, has toured the 440 in S1.4 which Is also better than the current marR of 51.8. Of course, breaking of records depend* on the weather. A smile by the weatherman could help In the establishment of some new marks. Alton and East St. Louis are favored to fight It out for the championship. The Redblrds will be competing in their seventh meet of the aeason of which they have won aix. Thii will be their fourth outdoor meet.

Grand Jury Returns First Indictment NEW YORK (AP) - The grand jury investigating the newest college basketball scandal had returned its first indictment today amid indications it could be just the beginning. Aaron Wagman, one of two New York gamblers arrested on charges of bribing college players, was indicted for trying to bribe a detective. Specifically, Wagman was named in a three-count indictment which accused him of offering two $50 bribes to David Campbell, detective, from the office of Dist. Atty. Frank Hogan. Wagman, who was free pending appeal of a Florida conviction on charges of attempting to bribe a university of Florida football player, also was accused of offering to cut in Campbell on a share of unidentified fixed basketball game in return for information on the district attorney's investigation. The indictment Thursday named no games or players but was considered the first step into what could be a widespread expose. The district attorney's office, when Wagman and Joseph Hacken were arrested March 17, indicated the investigation might turn up activities dwarfing the scandal of a decade ago. Wagman, when he was arrested, was accused by Asst. Dist. Atty. John Andreoli of paying 51,500 to an unidentified University of Connecticut player in connection with a Connecticut-Colgate game at Hamilton, N.Y., March L. Hacken, Andreoli said, was accused of paying two Seton Hall players $1,000 each concerning a ;ame with Dayton Feb. 9 at Madison Square Garden.

The Phil, scoring four runs in the last two innings, three of them gifts, salvaged the final game of their three-game set at Los Angles Thursday night, winning 8-7. That left the Reds, who rapped the Chicago Cubs again, 5-2, alone on top. San Francisco made it two in a row over the world champion Pittsburgh Pirates, winning 6-5 in 12 Innings for the Giants' first decision over relief ace Elroy Face in three years.

It's soft and j ?£"£' mushy and it works a hardship on a good skating club like ours." It is not surprising that the Red Wings do not like the Chicago ice. They have not performed well in either of the Stanley Cup final series games played here, and got only one victory in seven tries here during the regular season. The series is tied 2-2 and the Hawks are 9-5 favorites in the fifth game in the best-of-seven series tonight. The sixth game will be played Sunday night in Detroit, where the Red Wings have won both games. A seventh game, if necessary, will be played in Chicago Tuesday night. McDaniel Turns Hero to Coat ST. LOUIS (AP)—Ace reliever Lindy McDaniel of the Cardinals, one of the heroes in the Red- Birds' opening day defeat of Milwaukee, found himself on the other side of the fence in Thursday's 5-4, 11-inning loss to the Braves. He filled the bases by hit ting a batter, then walked in the winning run. The Cards lace Cincinnati in St. tonight. On the mound for game against Milwaukee as Bob Anderson opposes the Braves' Bob Buhl. The Giants and Dodgers swap foes. The American League's expanded schedule, so far restricted to ust five games because of bad weather, counted another complete loss Thursday with rain, snow and cold barring play. Only three games are scheduled today. Cleveland moves to Washington and Minnesota to Baltimore for night games with the Chicago White Sox at Detroit this afternoon. After blasting from behind on two-run homers by Pancho Herrera and Tony Gonzalez, the Philies dropped back again in the seventh at Los Angeles when the Dodgers scored three for a 6-4 lead. The Phils then moved ahead again with three in the eighth on a double by Tony Curry and a single by Gonzalez. The Dodgers tied it 7-all in their eighth on an unearned run. The Phils then put it away when »vinning reliever Dick Farrell singled and scored on a two-out ror by losing reliever Ed Palm-jst. Louis will be Curt Simmons, quist in the ninth. It was the first decision for each. The Giants finally won it when winning reliever Jim Duffalo doubled in the 12th and Felipe Alou and Harvey Kuenn followed with singles.

(AP) Charlie Sifford carried a one- stroke lead into today's second round of the $22,500 Greater jreensboro Open golf tournament, and if the Los Angeles Negro professional continues his daily improvement pattern over the Sedgefield Country Club course he will be hard to catch, Sifford shot a three under par 68 to lead a field of 115 by a itroke in Thursday's opening round of the 72-hole tournament. Billy Maxwell of Dallas, Tex., was next at 69. Mike Souchak of Grossinger, N.Y., and Greensboro amateur Bill Harvey, paired together, posted 70s to share third place. Six pros carded par 71s to tie for fifth place. Heading the lot was Sam Snead, defending cham pion from White Sulphur Springs, W. Va., and seven-time winner here. Tied with him were Gene Littler, Singing Hills, Caro Unas PGA champion Av|ry Beck from Kinston, N.C., and Don Massengaie, Jacksboro, Tex.; Buddy Sullivan, Yuba City, Calif., and Bob Shave, Willoughby, Ohio.

Flutterby Paces CaliforniaDerby ALBANY. Calif. (AP) -Alberta Ranches' Flutterby, with the veteran Johnny Longden riding, heads a field of seven 3-year-olds racing Saturday in the $60,100 California Derby at Golden Gate Fields. The test over a mile and an eighth provides indication of the chances of six of the sophomores ;o run in the Kentucky Derby. Flutterby, Songman, Gay Land ing, Mr. Consistency, Indian All and Mighty Mine are all eligible for the run for the roses. Only Sonofagun, among the California Derby horses, wasn't entered for the Kentucky feature. Under the allowance conditions of the California race, Flutterby must carry 119 pounds with the other six at 116.

And you can look for the old guy from Mississippi to be sack as quarterback pitching passes as usual next fall. Conerly, 39 years old and with ;reying hair showing under the 10-gallon hat he wore, was in New York Thursday to make a television commercial. During timeouts, he made a few observations about football. "I've been going along on a year-to-year basis and I'll conrin ue to do so as long as I feel up to the job and as long as they want me," he said. "I'm going to meet Jack Mara (the Giants president) in a few days and we'll talk things over." There's no doubt the Giants will want Conerly again this year First they had Don Heinrich, who was supposed to take over for the veteran when he began to fade. Then they got George Shaw from Baltimore and Lee Grosscup, who was kept on the "taxi squad" for a couple of seasons learning the intricate duties of a pro quarterback. But it generally was Conerly who made the big plays and who could get the Giant offense mov ing when the others couldn't. Notre Dame Begins Drills SOUTH BEND, Ind.
