The Lakers, who now sport a 6-2 record, had registerd their fifth consecutive victory under the guidance of Brian Hogan Saturday night with a decisive 14-7 score over the Tigers. In Sunday's encounter Mickey Hall struck out 16 batters to de- feat the Lakers 7-1 and earn a split of a weekend double- header. Hall allowed four hits includ- ing two in the fifth inning when the Lakers scored their only run. Al Ferchuk singled to lead off the inning and scored on a single by Bob Roy with two out. The Tigers scored twice in each of the first two innings against losing pitcher Gerry Veres. Dave Sowinski singled to lead off the game and scored on a triple by Tim Young, who counted on a sacrifice fly by Greg Warzeka. Young also drove in designat- ed hitter Lome Niven in the second inning, Niven had two of the Tigers' 10 hits as did Young, Sowinski and Jesse Chavez. Saturday the Lakers pounded four Tigers pitchers for 17 hits en route to a 14-7 victory. It was the sixth win of the season against only one loss for the Lakers. Lethbridge jumped on start- ing pitcher Ken Ewasiuk and reliever Ernie Hee for seven runs on five hits in the fourth inning, with the key blow a three-run double by catcher Bryan Maxwell. The outburst erased a 5-2 Ed- monton lead which resulted when the Tigers put together j five hits off winning pitcher Al Ferchuk for four runs in the i second inning.

The two-day event, played over the two local courses, wound up Sunday afternoon. Tops gals When Barb Home was still tearing up the golf links in the city woman's championships was almost a oregone conclusion the past four years. This year however, Barb has sought greener pastures and as a result the race for top honors among the gals was thrown wide open. Sunday at Henderson Lake Golf Club, Enid Pepper of the Country Club emerged with the .poils as she topped the field of 32 entries in the city champ- onship. Elsie McGrath, a former city champion, finished in the run- ner-up spot while low net in the irst flight went to Jean Peake. Pepper, in winning the title, railed runner-up McGrath by wo strokes affcsr Saturday's irst 18 holes. McGrath, of Hen- derson Lake, fired a 92 Satur- !ay while Pepper finished with a 94. Sunday, in high winds at Hen- derson, Pepper came up with a 93 while McGrath had to set- tle for a 97, losing by two strokes. Third in the champion- ship was Linda Cemulini.

Rigorous drills loo much Players quit football ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. AP) Twenty-eight scholar- ship players quit or were hrown off Florida State Univer- sity's football team during nnelling exercises they claim ,vcre illegal under National Col- egiatc Athletic Association rules, the St. Petersburg Times reported in its Sunday edition. A rigorous schedule of pre- spring agility drills, wrestling, weightlifting and running up and down stadium steps were mandatory, contrary to NCAA the newspaper said it was told by 18 former players. They claimed it cost them valuable study time and two flunked out. Gome said they were made to play with in- "uries. All claimed their scholarships were cancelled or recalled with- out a hearing, another violation, according to sports writer Fred jirard in a copyrighted series. The loss represents 25 per cent of the squad, including promising players. COACH DENIES IT Coach Larry Jones. 39, of the Tallahassee school denied the accusations. "He .said all the players dropped off or were dismissed ecause of actions or problems of their own, especially grades, which he declined to discuss for fear of embarrassing the play- the Times said. Jones said the exercises were not' com- pulsory, the Times added. The pre-spring drills were started 13 years ago by Jones' predecessor Bill Peterson, now with Houston Oilers of the NFL. Some of the players told the Times the drills have always been demanding. Belles meet Junior Maids The famous Junior Queen and her Maids will be the main attraction at Dave Elton Park this evening. Set for an eight o'clock start, the exhibition encounter featur- ing the four-man (or woman) team and the Southern Belles will be staged at Dave Elton. The four gals, a pitcher, catcher, shortstop and first baseman, play teams of regula- tion number and on more oc- casions than not, come out on the winning end of the score. Drills were conducted in an old, bare dressing room. "A chicken wire fence was hung about four feet off the floor, and the players had to perform agility drills and wres- tling matches under this false The Times said. "The coaching staff took up positions around the chick- enwire enclosure and screamed, cursed and struck the players as they performed the exhaust- ing the newspaper said. REPORTS CLAIMS The Times said puny players claimed they were forced to wrestle huge linemen "and the losers had to keep wrestling un- til they won, always screaming and cursing and trying to draw blood like some kind of ani- mals." Punishment for offences like missing drills or being the weakling wrestler was to "run stadiums." The Times said this consisted of running up and down the 90 or so steps of the stadium 10 or 20 times until the offence had been atoned for. "It was during the six-week course prior to actual spring practices that several of the players went to Jones and quit, J6 of them at the Times stated. j Weiskopf hotter than a pistol PHILADELPHIA (AP) Jack Nicklaus will be the favor- ite in this week's United States Open, but the hottest golfer en route to Oakmont Country Club today for the tournament has to be Tom Weiskopf. The 30-year-old Weiskopf won the Philadelphia tour- nament Sunday with a 14-under- par 274 for his third triumph on the pro tour in the last four he's played. The first prize raised his earnings to for the year, and moved him ahead of Lee Trevino into third place on the money list. Here's an idea of the kind of golf the 6-foot-3 Wesikopf is playing. He has registered 17 straight rounds at par or in the Philadelphia event at White- marsh Valley Country Club. He shot 67-71-65-71 over the yard, par-72 course and won by four strokes over upstart Jim Barber of Qearwater, Fla. The 24-year old Barber, with a tie for 24th as his best ing previously in 10 tourna- ments, Shot 65-67-76-70 for a 10- under-par 278, TWO SHARE THIRD Young Johnny Miller with a final-round 69 and Forest ler, another of the new breed in golf, with a finishing 72, each wound up at nine-under-par 79, tied for third. Nicklaus, the top money win- ner and a four-time victor on the tour this year, rallied from 10 strokes back at the start of the last round to shoot a fiva- under-par 67 to finish at 280, six strokes off the pace. Ben Kern of Toronto had rounds of to pick up while George Knudson of Toronto had a 288 total from scores of 69-71-75-73 to earn Weiskopf continued his new policy of positive thinking at Whitemarsh, I ELRICH TIRE SPORT SCORES NATIONAL LEAGUE Chicago Montreal Pittsburgh St. Louis Nsw Ycrk Philadelphia East W L Pet.
