Ever See Her Charles iJe The Cubs have taken a slim one-game lead in the National Little Baseball League as the ac4ion moves down the home-stretch. But they are still engaged in a two-way dogfight with the Indians who had been the league leaders for most of the season until last week's action gave the Cubs the edge. The Cubs and Indians were all tied up in their race for the crown Friday evening when they met head, on in what had been billed as a tough battle. But the Cu bs soundly trounced the Indians by a 22-3 score to take the league lead. The Cubs now show a 9.2 maark on the season with four games to play, while the Indians are 8-3 with four games left. Members of the Cubs squad as shown above are: Front row kneeling (left to right)-.Steve Kershner, Scott Anders, John Waiters, Lewis Lucas, Mike Wlltshire, Dana Reiter, Jason Servis. Back row (left to right)...Garland Walker, co-manager; Clay Lashley, Jimmy Walker, Junior Hostler, Jeff Anders, Bruce W. Moler, Jerry Rhodes, Vernon Rodriek, Larry Manuel, and Tommy Kitchen, manager.
