Russ Parker of Calgary, com- missioner the six team AMBL, said the league's win- ning team would be allowed to add six players from oilier league clubs for the champion- ships.

Other members of the league I are Red Deer Elks, Edmonton i Tigers, Calgary Jimmies and Calgary Giants.

By THE ASSOCIATED PRESS There's a student revolt going on in the American League West Division where, with full approval of Al WorlhinRton, Minnesota's dean of pitchers, the Twins have taken over. It's a peaceful demonstration, though. At least most opposing baiters 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 nff to their fastest start in history with a 16-5 record and lead the West Pole position to Bob Unser? by m games over Oakland. Kaat, 4-0, is off lo a better start when he won 25 INDIANAPOLIS (A PI Bobby Unser drove a fragile, lightweight race car 10 miles at an unbelievable 195.940 miles an hour Sunday and said: "I fee! like crying." "We had our necks stuck out a mile, and for the first time in years I really felt like I was driving at the ragged edge of said the man who al- most surely has clinched the pole position the 56lh run- ning of the Indianapolis 509-mile race May 27. Plagued by bad weather thai 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. I 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 lo find the an- swer, Revson and Donohue at the very least could knock the other current front row sitters, Bettenhausen and Mario Andretti, further down In the ranks. Also still to be heard 'rom 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- .empts, 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 'ront-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 2'4-mile oval to compile his 135.340 aver- age. Beltenhausen was Sunday's second best qualifier at m.p.h. He is driving a McLaren fielded by Roger Penske. Mario Andretti, the 1D69 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. Minor baseball Ken Burla fired a three-hitter and paced the Cubs lo a 6-2 viclory over the Dodgers in Norcrest Little League action over the weekend.

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

Both should be alleviated 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 die new teams will be drawing players largely from their own areas. Tlie league also voted at a meeting in Kamloops yesterday to divide into two divisions next season Okanagan and the coast with Pentictou, Ke- lowiia, Vernon and Kamloops in the Okanagan division and Chilliwack, Vancouver, Nanai- mo and Bellingham m the coast division.
