The Indians forfeited the American League game to the Rangers. The second game of the three-game series is scheduled for tonight. It was 10-cent beer night at Municipal Stadium. -The Rangers came to town with the memories of a player brawl that took place in Texas last Wednesday. Some fans turned out on a warm lakefront night. Early in the game young fans started running on the field in between innings and were cheered by the crowd. Occasionally a firecracker went off. In the sixth inning, a streaker was applauded. The number of people running on the field increased each inning, and the Indians kept narrowing the Rangers' 5-1 lead. In the sixth inning the Tribe made it 5-3, and Martin re- moved his bullpen crew from the right-field area because of the number of missiles being thrown. Firecrackers were thrown into the Rangers' dugout and Martin paced back and forth Take One Step wins feature Take One Step took a big step Tuesday at Whoop-Up Downs. Owned and trained by Mrs. Shirley Clark of High River Take One Step captured the featured seventh race at Whoop-Up Downs as day two of the 1974 Spring Race Meet went by the boards. Piloted by Ivan Clark, Take One Step, the odds on favorite in the seventh, bested Some Talk by a comfortable margin. Some Talk, ridden by Herb McNally finished just ahead of Khalnesian. The win earned Take One Step the Fort Macleod Auction Market trophy blanket and the winner's share of the purse. Take One Step won the race in a rather slow due greatly to the high winds. It is winds that are causing all the troubles at Whoop-Up Downs. Thursday's race card has been dropped. A cold epidemic, not of major proportions, is currently hampering a number of horses causing a shortage of mounts for the jockeys on hand. It was decided Tuesday that Thursday would be dropped with racing to commence again Friday night at five and Saturday at two o'clock. In daily double action Tuesday the combination of Wayward Boy in the first race to Grinner in the second was worth while Fair Morning and Rainy Dawn paid a quinella in the second race. The exactor, a payoff, came about as Hadason won the fifth race followed by Tiny's King. In the eighth and final race of the evening Pilgrims Maid to Haydn's Doll paid a quinella of Racing is on tap again this evening at five o'clock and is scheduled for every day next week, barring any unforeseen difficulties.

In the ninth inning the In- dians tied the score at 5-5 and had the bases loaded, when fans again poured out of the rightfield stands and started harassing Ranger outfielder Jeff Burroughs. "They grabbed at my glove, took my Burroughs said. "I tried to call time, but nobody heard me. "I was getting scared because I felt the riot psychology." CARRIED BATS The Rangers came off the bench brandishing baseball bats and headed for right field, led by Martin. "I know it was silly for us to do Martin said. "But Jeff was out there all by himself. "I saw knives and chairs and other things. We just couldn't let our team-mate get beat up." After the Rangers left the bench, the Indians came out of the dugout to help their base- ball opponents. "You have to realize that the only thing I had to defend myself with was my Burroughs said. "I was happy to get some help. "And I thank the Indians for coming out to help me." There were skirmishes all over the field between ballplayers and fans. "I'll say one Martin added. "That fan we got a hold of out there got the hell kicked out of him." Nester Chylak, the chief umpire on the field, was hit on the head with a chair and had his hand cut. "We were so scared out there we had made plans for our Chylak said. "It was 500-to-one odds, and we could have gotten killed out there very Chylak continued. "I saw weapons out there, and I'm sure the only other place you would see something like this happen would be in a zoo." Chylak said he waited until all the ball players were pff the field before calling it a for- feit so none of them would be jeopardized. The forfeit gave the Rangers a 9-0 victory, but all the records count. Chylak was raging in the umpires' dressing room. "I can't judge whether it was beer night or the fight in Texas that started the whole Chylak said. "We didn't even know about the fight in Texas. "We were in California at the time. All I know is that everything that happened here tonight will be told in full to the commissioner." American League president Lee MacPhail said there will be no more beer nights in Cleveland in the foreseeable future. The Indians had three more planned for the season. A meeting of Indian executives was scheduled early today to discuss the situation. The Lakeside Golf League will hold its first awards night for the 1974 season this Friday evening. Time of the presentations has not yet been set, but it is expected proceedings will get under way at nine o'clock. It is open to all Lakeside League members.
