The tournamen ends Saturday. Minor baseball NEW YORK (CP) The New York City Off-Track Betting Corp., born in pain and tribula- tion, took a leap toward adoles- cence Thursday when it began accepting a full range of pari- mutuel wagering on thorough- bred racing here. The corporation's betting Khops and more than tele- phone accounts handled in across-the-board, daily dou- ble and exactor wagers at Aque- duct racetrack. On Wednesday, the corpora- tion had handled on'y in Aqueduct wagers, all of it in bets to win. Two new computers made the difference. They enabled OTB -4he corporation's official expand the range of betting at nine of its 13 shops, and to advance the dead- line for bets to within a couple of hours of race time. OTC has from its much-de- layed April 8 start accepted win, place, show, daily double and exactor wagers on harness racing, first at Roosevelt Race- way and later at Yonkers. All OTB wagers are computed into the track pari-mutuel pooh and payoffs are identical.

The OTB operation is being losely watched by other juris- ictions seeking more revenue, ncluding Ontario. The New i'ork City corporation is limited y present state legislation to orse racing, rather than to 'the whole field" of betting vhich is being studied by a gov- ernment task force in the nearby province. OTB was pushed into being in 870 by Mayor John V. Lindsay, desperate for city revenue. The mayor in 1970 listed nillion as' anticipated revenue from off-track betting for the year ended last June 30 but all he city got in the 1970-71 fiscal year was a big debt burden. OTB was to have begun tak- ing bets last Jan. 11. The open- ing didn't come about, however, until April 8. The reasons for the delay in eluded hasty legislation, legality of which was unsuccessfully challenged by some tracks; the inexperience in the business of the men named to run the sys- tem; poor planning and pur- chasing; lack of co-operation from unions and what the mayor described as the "delay- ing tactics" of the race track owners. The state's eight harness and four thoroughbred tracks criti- cized off-track betting from the start saying that the one per cent of OTB wagers allocated to the tracks won't cover expected drops in attendance and on- track bets. Howard .1. Samuels, wealthy 51-year-old industrialist and head of the five-man OTB board of directors, si still optimistic despite early setbacks. He predicted a', a news con- ference Wednesday that his agency will be able to give the city a profit of "a minimum of million" in the fiscal year ended next June .10 and hopes to reach the million revenue figure. "By the end of tho summer we will have 25 offices said Samuels. "We plan to have Ml shops operating by next sum mcr." The Angels eliminated the Twins from further action in the Lakeside Little League playoffs with a convincing 14-0 victory Thursday night. Allan Gepneris struck out 1! batters and didn't give up a hit to earn the well deserved vic- tory while Tim Hisaoka suf. fered the loss. Alex Gepneris aided the win blasting a home run and a sin gle while Mike Sheen chipped in with a double and a single The Indians cruised to a 9J victory over the White Sox las night behind Brent Maxwell'; Etching.

The Dodgers stayed alive i Norcrest Little League playo action Thursday evening b blasting the Cubs 12-4. Dave Snopek picked up th win despite giving up 11 hits Theo DeGroot suffered the se1 back. Ron Shellenberg belted a pa of doubles and a single for th winners. Rinoo Cattapan adde two singles. Reg Areshenko an Calvin Logan each came i with a pair of singles for Cubs. Bill Smith, 1969 world saddle bronc champion. I Third was Bobby Berger of Norman, Okla., with 68. This 26-year-old was fourth in the world in this event last year. Berger proved his mettle by also coming out in second place in the first day of the third go round of the bareback edition of the bucking iiorse action. He ad a 71-point ride on a horse called Scrap Iron. First was T. J. 'Walters of Valkins, Iowa, with a remark- ble 76 points and third with 70 joints was Clyde Vamvoras of )evol, Okla., winner of the sec- rul go round.

The record was set two days ,arlier by Fred Larson of Sher- an, Wyo., in the first day of e second go round.

The streaking Trevino, winner of the U.S., Canadian and Brit- ish Opens Trithin the last month, found his iron shots flying spin- lessly from the long fairway grass and struggled over the storied Olympia Fields course in three-over-par 74 Thursday. The effervesent Mexican- American, followed by most of the gallery, was eight strokes off the pace set by 35- year-old Australian, Bruce Crampton. Two Canadians were well back in the field. VOLLMER FIRES 78 Ben Kern of Toronto had a 74 and was tied with Trevino while Vollmer of Vancouver fired a 78. Cramp'.on's M, one over the competitive course record, in- cluded 11 one-putt greens and a remarkable string of putts from 50 35, 60, 14 and 12 feet before missing two successive four- footers. Looking over Crampton s shoulder were Tommy Aaron at 67 Dale Douglass with 68 and a group at 69-Dick Lotz, Chuck Montalbano, Bobby Greenwood, Gay Brewer, Phil Rodgers and Bobby Brue. None has won a tournament this year. NATIONAL LEAGUE East W 58 L PCt.
