Indians shoot down Orioles Brock maintains streak By THE ASSOCIATED PRESS Lou Brock, St. Louis' streaking left fielder, cracked three hits Thursday night to stretch his batting string to 23 games as the Cardinals decked Chicago Cubs 10-0. Brock's bash has victimized the National League's top pitching talent-the latest was hard-throwing Chicago ace Ferguson Jenkins. Te right-hander from Chatham, Ont, didn't give Brock much of a selection, but | K didn't matter. "I hit a ball that wasn't a; strike the first time up," said: Brock, and the second time I lilt a ball that wasn't a strike. "The third time up I struck out on a ball. The only strike I had all night was for a double. "He's a tough pitcher. Any time you see one of his pitches well you've got to swing on it, because he can throw a pitch right down the middle and you might not even see it." In the night's other National I League action, Atlanta Braves Budget, financial statement all set Nothing settled on junior hockey scene THUNDER BAY, Ont. (CP) - The Canadian Amateur Hockey Association had no problems settling its 1971-72 budget or accepting the financial statement of last year's playoffs, but when it came to Junior hockey nothing was settled. The CAHA's new board of directors, which will be announced today, will be faced with the problem of what to do with St. Catharines Black Hawks. The Ontario Hockey Association team refused to return to Quebec City for the sixth game in their Richardson Cup series with Quebec Remparts of the Quebec Junior Hockey League. Quebec was awarded the series and went on to win the Memorial Cup. GAHA president Earl Dawson, who will resign his position officially today, said the decision of what, if anything, to do would be handled by the new executive. The junior situation dominated most of Thursday's session although, as in earlier meetings this week, nothing was settled. The junior council proposal for a super junior game and elimination of the junior draft will be one of the topics of discussion at the board of directors meeting. The Centennial Cup winner may challenge the Memorial Cup champion in a one-game playoff for the national junior title if the CAHA executive level, will be negotiated with first-level teams. He said the two eastern leagues in the top level have agreed to do away with the draft, but that the WCHL has said it will consider eliminating the draft only if the CAHA considers giving them the right to move players from one branch to another in Western Canada without the players being classified as branch-to-branch transfers. The WCHL operates in three branches in Western Canada-Manitoba, Saskatchewan and Alberta. Delegates at the plenary session approved a recommenda- tion that the CAHA negotiating committee include in any further agreement with the Na-tional Hockey League that "draft payments for players at American colleges be paid to the last junior club played with in Canada." The CAHA also approved a 1971-72 project allowing for a Minor ball roundup IT'S GRADUATION TIME SURPRISE YOUR BOY OR GIRL WITH A BRAND NEW BICYCLE FROM BERT & MAC'S CYCLE "YOUR CYCLE CENTRE OF THE SOUTH" CCM.
