Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - April 8, 1974, Lethbridge, Alberta 8-THE LtTHBRIDQI HERAUL- Monday, April I, 1174 EXPLORE CANADA IN '74 UeofM IWM by NA liw, or Ak i Of Cmdfc Vriwn and H.W.T.

TYPEWRITERS Hiller picks up where he left off Kuhn got his own way Sunday afternoon By THE CANADIAN PRESS Henry Aaron had not planned on taking part in Sunday's Atlanta Braves- Cincinnati Reds game and his performance at the plate may have reflected his surprise at being ordered to play by commissioner Bowie Kuhn. The Braves won 5-3 even though Aaron struck out twice and grounded out once. Darrell Evans' three-run homer gave Atlanta its only win of the opening three-game series Kuhn had "suggested" that Aaron start in Thursday's sea- son opener and Aaron's first swing became homer No, 714, tying Babe Ruth's career record. He sat out Saturday and was going to do the same Sunday, just to make sure he didn't rob Atlanta fans of No. 715 as well.
