Wh He Sox Tied in LL By MAURICE OLIAN The Student Co-op Orioles, a team that was expected, before the season began, to be in first place, and the Marion Pugh White Sox, a team that was not figured to be in such a lofty position, picked up wins Wednesday to remain dead locked for the College Station Lit tle League lead. The Orioles raced (and that’s the correct word, for the game was completed in just 51 minutes) to a 6-2 win over the V.F.W. Red Sox in the first battle of the twin-bill, while the White Sox slipped by the Black’s Pharmacy Senators 6-3 in the second game. Fast-baller Bill Berry went the distance for the Orioles to pick up the win and allowed only three hits. He conquered his usually faulty control by walking only one batter, and he struck out two. Berry g-ot stronger as the game breezed along, as he retired the last twelve batters in succession. Ricky Howard pitched credit able ball in being tagged with the defeat; he surrendered seven hits, fanned three, and walked two while going the full distance. A scoreless tie was broken in the third inning when the Red Sox tallied twice on singles by Tom Taylor and Eldon Hagler, a stol en base, and an error. The Orioles bounced back with three runs thanks chiefly to doub les by Les Palmer and Larry Ran dolph and a single by George Out law. They put the game “on ice” with another trio of runs in the fourth frame. Doubles by Furman Isbell and Randolph, and Palmer’s single were the blows that did the damage. Randolph’s sizzling bat cracked out 3-for-3, a trio of doubles, to pace the game’s hitters. Team mate Palmer got 2-for-3. Getting one hit apiece were two Orioles— Outlaw and Isbell—and three Red Sox — Taylor, Hagler, and Jack Fugate. In the second game of the night, Bill Bates’ White Sox took advant age of some “charity” to take an early 5-0 lead. Five walks and Oz- zie Burke’s single pushed three runs across the plate in the first frame. Two more walks and a pair of hits shoved two runs across the dish in the second inning - . Danny Feldman personally ac counted for the winners’ sixth tally with a solo homer in the fifth in ning, the league’s initial home run of the year* The Senators managed two runs in the third inning, with Joe 01- ian’s single and Larry Lewis’ wind- blow double being the big blows. They scoi’ed once in the fourth in ning due mainly to Harry Lewis’ two-base hit. John Stark hurled steady ball for the White Sox to pick up the win. He gave up five well-spaced hits, walked three, and struck out one. J. W. Parsons started for the Senators but was “derricked” in the second inning after walking seven, fanning one, and doling out two hits. Jody Rush turned in a fine relief job, as he gave up only two safeties, walked none, and sti'uck out seven. Olian led the Senator’s witft 1- for-1, while Feldman had a similar mark for the White Sox. Others getting one hit were L. Lewis, H. Lews, Johnny Williams, Jimbo Car- Annual Home Eco Conference Begins By JOE DAN BOYD Battalion Reporter Seventy-five high school home- economiqs students and fifty teach ers registered yesterday for the annual Area 8 Leadership Training Conference in session at the Me morial Student Center June 6-8..
