The Lakers had opened with a 5-1 loss to Lansing, Mich., in their debut Saturday morning. They were limited to three hits by Jean Berens, who helper pitched the Michigan team into the national tournament last year at Stratford, Conn. Bev Conaway was the losing pitcher. She not only lost the game but injured her leg and is doubtful for the big 11-team tourney this week at Northside Playground where the Lakers are hosts. Coming back in a losers bracket game, the Lakers stayed alive by beating Detroit Mich., 3-0, behind the one - hi pitching of Shirley Adleman The Lakers had six hits, includ ing a 3-for-3 performance bj Lea Follis and 2-for-2 by Mari lyn Harris. Alderman and Harris pitchei for the Lakers against Shelby ville, which erupted for nin runs in the fifth inning to wi; easily, 12-1. The game wa stopped because of the 10-rui rule. The Lakers came out of th 13-team tourney with a 15-1 record. ardly be substantiated by the] erfofmances in the two-day Olympic Trials just completed. Nor, it was reaffirmed today, will the makeup of the big quad be known or determined ritil the high altitude final trials at South Lake Tahoe, Calf., Sept. 9-17. The Olympic Track and Field Jommittee,' headed by Chairman Kilmer Lodge, said it would announce the list of ath- jtes later today who will be in- rited to Lake Tahoe, based on afforts in the just concluded competition in Memorial Coliseum. As many as 10 from each of Jie 18 events will get the call. Those eventually named to the earn, including the winners here, must satisfy the committee in September that they are jhysically stund and can with success perform in Tahoe's Mexico-like altitude of more than 7,000 feet. .Lodge said the trials here served to filter out the less adept athletes. He also frankly conceded the Olympic fund needed any revenue it got from the trials. In this respect the trials fel far short of anticipations. Onl> 48,710, about evenly divided be tween the Saturday and Sunday events, witnessed what one hu morist called "the biggest all comers meet in the country." The lone major record cam in the triple jump. Art Walke upped his American mark o 54-11 to 55-1%. Possibly the most suspens ame late Saturday when colle- ians Bob Seagren and John 'aughn came fairly close to reaking the world pole vault record, trying for 17-8. They settled for 17-4 and Seagren, from the University of outhern California, won in a ump-off over .his rival from JCLA. The status of a Negro boycott f the Olympic Games remained mcertain. A poll by The Asso- iated Press Sunday of winners revealed none who would say he definitely would not go to Mexico City, There were unforseeen disappointments in the competition. Little Gerry Lindgren, the nation's finest distance runner, passed up the 5,000 Saturday and had to pull out of the 10,000 Sunday when he came up with an ailing Achilles tendon and lad to drop out after 5% miles. Hurdler Earl McCullouch led n the 110-meter highs until he lit the last barrier. He was )eaten for the first time this year and finished seventh be- lind the winner, Erv Hall of Villanova. The time was 13.6. Jimmy Hines won the 100 meters in 10.3, defeating arch rival Charlie Greene by inches. The two are now 2-and-2 for the year in their personal rivalry. • Pcrmalube • Shell X100 • Conoco Motor Oil $100 3 QTS. . . I Gordon Grider Come in and see what you've been missing.
