'M' batmen must win

to stay in

title chase



CHICAGO (P)-Two former major league
stars, Coach Dick Siebert of Minnesota antd
Coach Danny Litwhiler of Michigan State,
probably will have their teams battling for
the Big Ten baseball title tomorrow.
Litwhiler's Spartans and Siebert's Go-
phers are tied for, first at 12-2 entering the
final weekend of the Conference race.
However, before meeting in a possible
climactic twin bill at Minneapolis tomor-
row, Michigan State and Minnesota have
doubleheaders today against host Iowa (4-8)
and visiting Michigan (9-5) 'respectively.
Presumably, the Spartans and Gophers
will be battling also tomorrow for a berth
in the NCAA's college World Series at
Omaha June 10-15.
Mathematically, Michigan still is in con-
tention. with a brace at Iowa following to-
day's twin bill at Minnesota. The Wolverines

could wind up with Minnesota and Michigan
State in a three-way title tie at 13-5.
Litwhiler, one-time infielder for several
National League clubs, is on the verge of
making true his preseason prediction that
Michigan State would win the conference
Litwhiler, president of the American As-
sociation of College Baseball Coaches, called
the Spartans his best team in the last five
years because of power, pitching and speed.
Siebert, former Philadelphia A's first
sacker, took an opposite preconference view
of his Gophers. "We just don't shape up as
a national contender this time," said Sie-
bert, who has piloted five Big Ten cham-
pions since 1956.
However, the well-balanced Gophers,
third in conference batting, pitching and
slugging have a presidential election year

winning tradition, as well as the home dia-
mond advantage going for them against the
If a title tie results, the Big Ten's NCAA
tourney delegate will be determined by this
The winner of a game or series between
the deadlocked teams shall be selected, or,
in any other circumstance, a flip of the coin
will decide the NCAA entry.
Wisconsin, like Michigan, also has a 9-5
record to share third place. However, the
Badgers at best could wind up only 11-5
playing single games Friday and Saturday
with invading Northwestern (6-10).
Other final round games: today - Indi-
ana (4-7) at Illinois (6-8), and dethroned
champion Ohio State (5-8) at Purdue
(0-12), both ,twin bills.
Tomorrow i- Indiana at Purdue, and
Ohio State at Illinois, both doubleheaders.




ISU prexy nixes blacks

Ames, Iowa (M)-The president;
of Iowa State University said yes-
terday grievances by Negro ath-
letes against members of the
Cyclone coaching staff apparently
result from misunderstandings.
"I have never seen any evidence
of racial discrimination" by the
coaching staff, said Robert Parks.
Members of a group knowns as
the, Black Students Organization
presented a list of grievances to
the university's athletic council,
a faculty-student group, earlier
this week.
The Des Moines Register said it
learned that the Negroes asked
that basketball Coach Glen An-
derspn, baseball Coach Cap Timm
and trainer Bob Billings be fired
unless they "have a change of
University officials and mem-
bers-of the Negro organization re-
fused to confirm or deny the
Register story.
"I am sure that the athletic
council will be able to clear up
any misunderstandings that may
exist," said Parks. He said the
council would give the grievances
serious consideration.

"I am personally acquainted
with our athletic staff." added
Parks. "I have known some of
them for many years, and I have
never seen any evidence whatever
of racial discrimination.
"I believe that the fine record
made by black athletes at Iowa
State speaks for itself."
University Athletic Director Clay!
Stapleton refused to comment.
"There will be some statements
coming later and until then I will
have no statement," he said.

'Git them Injuns, Davy'

By The Associated Press
ATLANTA-Ron Hunt led off
the ninth inning with a single and
scored on a passed ball as San!
Francisco beat Atlanta 5-4 last
night and moved to a one-gameI
lead in the National League. I
The Giants began the day in a
virtual tie with the St. Louis
Cardinals for first place, but took
a one-halrf game lead when Los!
Angeles beat the Cards 3-2 in anI
afternoon game.
Hunt moved to second on Jim.
Davenport's sacrifice and took
third when Ty Cline grounded out.
Then Braves' substitute catcher
Marty Martinez, who took over for
Joe Torre in the eighth, let one
of Cecil Upshaw's pitches get
passed him and Hunt raced home.
* Torre singled home Hank Aaron
in the eighth to tie the score 4-4,
after Aaron's triple had scored
Tito Francona. Torre's hit was his
fourth of the game. He homered
in the third.
The Giants took a 4-2 lead in
the seventh when Cline doubled
home Hunt and Davenport scored
on Jim Hart's sacrifice fly.
Atlanta tied the score 2-2 in
the fifth when Sonny Jackson
scored on a doubleplay ball.
The Giants swept to a 2-0 lead
in the third when Dick Dietz

doubled home two unearned runs
after a two-out fielding error by
Deron Johnson.

ST. LOUIS-Bob Bailey's sin-
gle scored Willie Davis with two
out in the eleventh inning and
gave the Los Angeles Dodgers a
3-2 victory over St. Louis yester-
The setback was the Cards' sev-
enth in their last eight games and
dropped them out of first place in
the National League. The San
Francisco Giants moved into a
one-game lead by defeating At-
lanta later in the day.
With the score tied 2-2, Davis
opened the eleventh with a double
on which Ed Epiezie missed a div-
ing attempt. Lem Gabrielson's sac-
rifice moved Davis to third. Ron
Fairly was intentionally walked
and Tom Haller fouled out for the
second out.
Bailey then lashed his single to
center off reliever Dick Hughes
and Davis raced home.
Manager Walt Alston of the
Dodgers used an unusual strategy
to protect his lead. With the ty-
ing run on second base and two
out in the Cards' eleventh, he!
ordered Orlando Cepeda inten-
tionally walked, putting the po-
tential winning run on base.
