THE NEWS, Frederick, Maryland Friday, May 2Â», 1919 Page B-l N Bowie Kuhn Agrees To Collective Bargaining NEW YORK (AP) - Baseball Commissioner Bowie Kuhn testified in Federal Court Thursday that collective bargaining between players and owners was the best way to affect changes in the game's reserve system. Kuhn, under cross examination by Jay Topkis, one of Curt Flood's attorneys, said compul- sory arbitration of salary disputes would not be fatal to baseball. The seventh day of the trial in Flood's $3 million antiturst suit against baseball was given over to the cross examination of Kuhn, first defense witness. The trial will be resumed Monday after a weekend holiday recess. Charles "Chub" Feeney, presi- dent of the National League, the next scheduled witness. is Flood, former St. Louis Cardinal center fielder who refused to accept his trade to the Philadelphia Phillies last winter, is challenging the reserve system by which a player is bound to a club for life by an annual option to renew his contract. 7-5, For First Win Spires Whip Bulletin The Frederick Spires won their first contest of the season 7-5 over Prince Georges Bulletin Wednesday. Former major league pitcher Donny Loun was at his finest according to Spire Mentor Jack Patterson. Loun, a southpaw, fanned 11 opposing players without issuing a walk during his seven innings on the mound. Loun allowed three runs on two hits before being relieved. Loun gave up a run in the first frame then settled down to blank the home team the next three innings before tiring. Jerry Ricucci took over the controls on the hill without much success giving up two runs on one hit Hagerstown JC Team In National Tourney HAGERSTOWN, Md.-An excited 14-member Hawk baseball team flew to Colorado early Thursday as Hagerstown Junior College prepares to enter the final rounds of the United States Junior College Baseball Championships this weekend in Grand Junction. The HJC Hawks, under Coach Robert (Cokey) Robertson and Assistant Jeremy Boyer, won the right to represent the Northeastern United States in the finals by defeating Staten Island, N. Y. f Community College, 108, here Saturday in the district playoffs; The Hawks had previously topped Robert Morris Junior College of Pittsburgh for the .Region 19 title in a series that was also played in Hagerstown. The local college team is scheduled to play Friday at 8 p.m. MDT (10 p.m. EDT) in the first, round of the tourney hosted by Mesa Community College. The Friday opponent will be the winner of the Northwestern District, the coach said. If the Hawks win Friday they will play again Saturday at 8 p.m. MST against the winner of the first game Friday. The nationals re^ quire a double elimination. The final game to determine the National Junior College Championship Team will be held Wednesday, June 3. The Hawks posted a 17-5 season record and have won 13 of their last 14 games. The team is now seven in a row in the win column. , The 17-member traveling unit to Colorado includes: Coaches Robertson and Boyer, Manager Larry Snyder; and players, Tom Strickler, Mike Hill, Bob Tarner and Ralph McCarty, all sophomores; and the following freshmen, players, Kim Kell, Jack Branham, Jim Haller, Norm Long. Also Robbie Rice, Tony Cianelli, Bill Updegraff, John Hockensmith, Randy Weikert, and Steve Huber. while walking two and striking out one. Ricucci didn't have much defensive help from the Spires as they committed three errors in his two thirds of an inning on the mound. The Spires had five miscues during the game. Patterson then pulled another southpaw, Don Neel, from his bullpen to finish the contest for Frederick. Neel gave up a hit while registering three strike outs in one and one-third innings of relief work. The Spires put together a seven-hit offensive attack which was lead by Larry Ahalt. Ahalt had two safeties and Phil Ranne- berger added the game's only extra base hit a double. Griffin started for Bulletin but was relieved in the second frame after he gave up a run on two hits as he struck out four and walked one. Benjamin relieved Griffin and finished the game allowing six runs on five hits while whiffing seven and issuing two free passes. Stewart had three base knocks to lead the home team at the plate. The Spires will be out to win their second contest of the season this Sunday when they take on Martz Insurance, of Virginia. The game is scheduled to begin at 2 p.m., at McCurdy Field, in Frederick. Frederick 001 310 000 "7-7-5 Bulletin 100 020. 020 5-4-2 The commissioner maintained the reserve system is an evolving system with many changes over the years and more to be expected in the future. Asked if baseball could survive if owners and players should agree to free all players after five years to bargain for their services, Kuhn said the question was hypothetical and added, "I do not anticipate any such result" Kuhn repeated earlier objections to pro football's play-out- the-optioo system as "very damaging" because of the possibility of tampering. When Topkis asked Kuhn why he should expect tampering in baseball and not football, he said: "It is inevitable that any system such as professional football uses has the danger of tampering. I want baseball to be free of any damage.*' Kuhn added he had no reason to doubt the integrity of the people in pro football but the option rule raises the question of tampering. Although Kuhn said compulsory salary arbitration would not be fatal to baseball, he testified it would be harmful because it would create a gulf in player- owner relations. THE ROAD WAS BLOCKED - Mississippi State University's Ted Milton (25) heads for third base on his hands and knees but finds the path blocked by Maryland's Jimmy Lawrence (19) during tonight's second game in the NCAA Baseball playoffs. Maryland won 3-2.-(AP Wire- photo) Maryland Thinclads Face Villanova In IC4A Meet PHILADELPHIA (AP) Villanova track and field coach Jumbo Elliott told his team earlier this week: "the worse tihing I can do is coach you now. Just go out there and run long and easy." This was Elliott's way of telling his team it's ready for the 94th annual Outdoor IC4A Championships today and Saturday on Penn's all weather track at Franklin Field. Not that Villanova isn't usually ready. In the last 13 years, Elliott's Wildcats have won this meet nine times and finished second three times. Eliott is concerned with perennial rival Maryland. In the past five years Villanova and Maryland have monopolized the meet, the Wildcats winning in 1967 and 1968 wiih Maryland second, and Maryland taking the title in 1965, 1966 and 1969 over, runnerup Villanova. Last year's Maryland victory was by a single point. "I figured this thing out and came up with Maryland the winner by eight points," Elliott says. "So, I threw my figures away. . . ." Maryland coach Nick Kovala- kides won't say outright that the meet is a Maryland-Villanova war. He observes that some of the other teams are stronger this year. "William and Mary and Yale may take some of the points we figure to get," he says. "I think it's going to be close." Only five titles will be decided Friday-the six mile, hammer, javelin, discus and long jump. Kovalakides is concerned about Jack Bacon, the defending javelin champion. He has had a sore elbow and his initial throw Friday will be his first since May 2, the Maryland coach says. In addition to the five individual titles Friday there will be 15 trials for Saturday finals. One of the highlights is Saturday's mile in which Villanova's .Marty Liquori takes a shot at the 3:56.8 meet record set here two years ago by Dave Patrick of Villanova. It was the fastest mile ever run in the East, with the first five finishers all breaking the 4 minute barrier. In addition to Liquori, fresh from a 1,500 meter victory over Kenya's Kip Keino, the 1968 Olympic Games gold medal winner, the field includes Howell Michaels HI of William and Mary, and Maryland's John Baker. Michaels edged Liquori in 4:03.1 in the indoor NCAA championships last March, while Baker finished ahead oJ the Villanova runner in an indoor race here won by Keino in January. Eleven of 17 individual winners in last year's meet are defending their titles. They include Maryland's Jack Bacon in the javelin, John Hartley in the shotput and Buddy Williams in the pole vault; Yale's Don Martin in the 100, Bay Pollard of Morgan State in the 220. Villanova's Larry James the 440, Liquori in the mile, Jerry Richey of Pitt in the three mile and Maryland's Joe David in the high jump. James has never lost an individual IC4A race, winning the 440 outdoors twice and the 600 indoors three times. He can become the first to win the IC4A outdoor 440 three straight years since Pitt's John Woodruff did it in 1937.38-39. Legion Baseball The American Legion baseball team of Frederick will again hold practice this Saturday. All interested persons are invited to attend. The practice will be held on the Frederick High School diamond beginning at 2 p.m. Presently the team needs experienced and interested boys to fill the roster. Small turnouts at previous practices may force Frederick out of Legion baseball because of lack of interest. Â· Any boy who is interested and can not attend the practice should contact William Greene, the manager Greene's phone number is 6628855. This is the last Saturday before Frederick is scheduled to open the season against Westminster, June 6. "PERSONALITY . .

Marking time in his garage 48 hours before the start of the race, Pollard said: "Mest other athletes lose their desire to compete, to win, after they reach 40. There are the Hogans and the Sneads in golf, who can still hit a ball out of sight, but fall off in their put- desire but they certainly are no longer competitive with the young lions of their sport. "I haven't reached that point yet; in fact, I feel Pm just reaching my prime. I have more desire now than when I got into a race car the first time in 1955, when the Hogans and the Sneads were at the top. "And for goodness sakes, there is a heck of a lot of difference in driving a race car and hitting a golf ball." The former modified stock Walkersville Netters Win District Title ting. They may not have lost the car champion from Medford, Ore., is unlike most of the 33 starters in the 54th Indianapolis 500 lineup: aside from his age, he is part owner of the firm that pays the bill for his racing operation. Pollard's cars are sponsored by a firm that franchises car wash systems bearing his name. "Our operation on USCA's championship trail this year will cost about $400,000," Pollard said. "So we'd have to win two races the size of Indianapolis just to pay the bills." Pollard brought three new cars designed by veteran mechanic Grant King to Indianapolis. The husky 200-pounder qualified one car on the outside of the second row at 168.595 miles per hour. Greg Weld, 26-year-old rookie from Kansas City, Mo,, put the other car in 28th starting position at 166.121 m.p.h. The third machine, powered like the others by a turbocharged Offenhauser engine, was held in reserve. Pollard, who is making only his third start at Indy, figures there are 10 drivers that rate about an equal chance of winning. In addition to himself, he lists front-row starters Al Unser, A.J. Foyt, and Johnny Rutherford; his own second-row mates, Roger McCluskey and Mark Donohue; _1968 winner Bobby Unser and 1969 champion Mario Andretti; Lloyd Buby, who starts in 25th position, and Jack Brabham, who starts in 26th place. CUMBERLAND-The Walkersville girl tennis team, which was representing Fraderick County in the district matches, won the title by defeating Beall and North Hagerstown Thursday. In the first round, Karen Bachtell of Walkersville whipped Sally Donius 6-1, and 6-3. The Lions Brenda Hedges lost to Candy Ferree of Beall 6-3, and 6-1 while Joan Heslin of Walkersville lost to Peggy Dugan of Beall, 6-2, and 6-0. Sue Mainhart topped Nancy Stooufe of Beall to reach the finals along with Bachtell and three other Lions whodrewbyes. Karen Bachtell won her final Benefit Race Is Scheduled A benefit race for the family of the late Frank Gorichky will be held Wednesday evening at the Hagerstown Raceway.
