Juniors- faster, higher

Over 700 of the nation's finest teen-age
athletes got into the act yesterday as the
AAU Junior Olympics took off in grand
style. Champions were crowned in swim-
ming, diving, judo and track with gym-
nastics and trampoline championships to
be determined t o d a y. (A schedule of
events can be found in the box).
Today at'
the Olympics

A round-up of yesterday's opening day
-Steve Herrman from -LaCrosse, Kans.,
took the one mile race walk in a record-
setting time of 6:57.8, breaking his own
record of 7:09.8 set last year.

Herrman, a 17 year old junior, is a
long distance runner who walks com-
petitively to keep in shape during the
running off-season.
Herrman trailed the leader on the first
lap, but slowly weaved his way to the
front as the race began its second lap and
from then on the Kansas flash could not
be headed.
The crowd pleaser of the afternoon was
16 year old Tim Walker, a Rhode Island
-entrant. Walker soared over the cross
bar at 6'11" and brought the reserved
crowd to a fever pitch. His three attempts
at 7 feet even were not as successful, but
were appreciated nonetheless. The pre-
vious mark was a mere 6-10 and Walker

disposed of that with ease.
Walker is a Fosbury Flop practioner
who had previously only negotiated the
6-9 mark successfully. Walker was a bit
guarded about his career, "I'll go any-
where there is a good coach."
Cheryl Butler of Washington, D.C., took
the girl's long jump championship with a
distance of 19-3 , just 2 inches off the
meet record. Butler far outdistonced her
closest competition, Cheleste Johnson of
Chicago, Ill., who leaped 18-11.
Also settled was the girls 8-lb. shot put,
won by San Diego's Kathy Devine with a
46-4% toss. Olga Aranda of Universal City,
Texas, was second.
Ann Arbor entrants in the track and

field events were not particularly success-
ful, failing to qualify for today's finals.
Steve Seck of Watertown, Minn., cap-
tured the 16 year old boy's judo in the
lightweight division.
Charles Pearson of Riverside, Calif.,
barely edged out Jamey Powell of Ches-
terfield, Mo., ° to capture the boy's 100
meter backstroke. Bruce Furniss, Santa
Anna, Calif., coasted to a 404 meter free-
style victory.
For the girls Babra Ehring, Wayne, Pa.,
took the honors in the 400 freestyle, just
touching out Jean Westhoven of nearby
And in the only other final determined
yesterday in the tank, another Californian
Laun Cramer took the backstroke with a
In the competition for all-around lealer
(no single event winners are named) four
leaders emerged in their respective divi-
sions: Kurt De Varona, Riverside, Calif.,
in boys 13-14, Pat Lanterman, Seattle,
Wash., girls 13-14, Kurt Thomas, Hialeah,
Fla., boys 15-18, and Denise Rivet, St.
Paul, girls 15-18.

McNally saves
ARLINGTON, Tex. - Balti-
more's Dave McNally pitched a
two-hitter and defeated the Texas
Rangers for the 17th consecutive
time last night in the Orioles' 5-1
American League victory.
McNally had held Texas hit-
less until the seventh inning,
when Toby Harrah led off with
a single. McNally then erased
Harrah on a double play and
surrendered a home run to Bill
Sudakis in the eighth for the
Rangers' other hit.

By that time, the Orioles had
given him a 5-0 lead with an
unearned run in the first and a
two-run homer by Earl Williams,
his 16th of the season, three inn-
ings later.
The Orioles added two runs in
the seventh when Tommy Davis
singled home Al Bumbry and
Rich Coggins. It was the 1,700th
career hit for Davis.
Then McNally, 11-13, took
charge, stifling the Rangers the
rest of the way to preserve a
winning streak that started in
September 1968.
Barber shaves
NEW YORK-Winston Llenas'
pinch single with two 'out in the
eighth inning keyed the Cali-
fornia Angels to a 3-1 victory
over the New York Yankees
It was the Angels' first victory
over Mel Stottlemyre, 12-11,
since June 30, 1967. The Yankee
right-hander had beaten them 11
straight times.
Llenas singled home Billy
Barker, running for Bob Oliver
who was safe on an error, who
had advanced to third on an in-
tentional walk and a forceout..
The third run then was singled
home by Sandy Alomar.
The Yankees tied the game at
1-1 with a run in the fourth on
Gene Michael's sacrifice fly.
Leadoff batter Thurman Mun-
son was hit by a pitch and raced
to third on a single to right by
Graig Nettles. Jim Ray Hart
then walked to load the bases
against California pitcher Steve
Barber, making his first start of
the year.
After Felipe Alou popped to
short, Michael slammed a sac-
rifice fly to Tom McCraw in
left, scoring Munson with the
tying run.
The Angels took a 170 lead in
the first off New York's Mel
Stottlemyre on Bob Oliver's run-
scoring single to center.
Center fielder Bobby Murcer
of the Yankees made the de-
fensive play of the game in the
first inning when he threw out a
runner at home after a single
by Mike Epstein.

THURMAN MUNSON is ready and waiting and Bob Oliveer can't believe it. And so Oliver was retired at the plate in the first inning
of the contest between the American League Yanks and the American League Angels. Munson is waiting because superstar Bobby Mur-
cer threw a perfect toss from center field to nail the fleet Oliver.4
