It's a peaceful demonstration, though. At least most opposing batters have acted peaceful enough to give the Twins' pitch- ing staff a 1.86 earned-run aver- age following unbeaten Jim Kaat's 4-2 victory Sunday over Milwaukee Brewers. The Twins are off to their fastest start in history with a 16-5 record and lead the West Pole position to Bob Unser?

Plagued by bad weather that washed out all of Saturday's first session of time trials, Speedway officials managed to place 12 drivers in the 33-car field after waiting out rain showers that twice interupted proceedings Sunday. Even then, five drivers were still waiting on the qualifying line when the track closed at 6 p.m., among them the No. 1 and No. 2 qualifiers for the 1971 race, Peter Revson and Mark Donohue. Only these two appear to have a chance at dislodging Unser from the pole. Revson has been clocked at 190-plus in practice. With a week to find the an- swer, Revson and Donohue at the very least could knock the other current front row sitters, Gary Bettenhausen and Mario Andretti, further down in the ranks. Also still to be heard from are such chargers as Al Unser, A. J. Foyt Jr., and new comer Bill Vukovich. Foyt and Al Unser broke their engines during qualifying at- tempts, while Vukovich lost con- trol after completing one lap and crashed into the first turn barrier. Al Unser won the 1970 and 1971 races and Foyt is the only active three-time winner. Aside from Vukovich, the day's only other crash involved front-runner Jim Malloy, Den- ver, Colo. Malloy's Eagle spun 75 feet and crashed Into the third turn wall head-on during the Sunday morning practice session. He was listed in critical condi- tion at an Indianapolis hospital with two broken legs, a broken arm and bums on the face, arms and legs. Bobby Unser, driving a new Eagle produced by Dan Gur- ney's All-American Racers, rocketed around the 2V4-mil6 oval to compile his 195.940 aver- age. Bettenhausen was Sunday's second best qualifier at 188.877 m.p.h. He is driving a McLaren fielded by Roger Penskc. Mario Andretti, the 1969 Indy 500 winner and three-time na- tional driving champ, grabbed a shaky hold on the other front row berth by qualifying at 187.617 in one of the Parnelli Jones team cars. some games team is allowed four imports in i to see how she comes league play. j Mr. Pafker said.

(CP) The British Columbia Junior Hockey League has voted to expand from its former six teams to eight teams for the coming season with new mem- bers from Bellingham, Wash., and Nanaimo on Vancouver Is- land.

Coates said that In the lasl season, having only two teams on B.C.'s lower mainland "pro- vided problems in both schedul ing and cost of operations." Both should be alleviatec with the expansion, he said. He also says he feels the league will not be weakened as far as overall talent is con cerned because the new teams will be drawing players largely from their own areas.

Boston first baseman Duane Josephson went from hero to goat in minutes against Oak- land.
