Seven bowlers and Smead made the trip to Vancouver Monday after winning the Alberta title in Edmonton on the weekend, and came away with the Canadian mixed team title. Smead, who has enjoyed many a thrill competing, said this was as big as any of them. This time Smeed was the coach. Anchored by Roy Cunningham, the Southern Alberta team rattled the pins for an outstanding total, 607 pins better than Northern Ontario. Manitoba, who trailed Southern Alberta in the first five-game block, was third. "It's been just said Smeed. "They are just a great crew to coach and be associated with. Joining Cunningham and coach Smeed on the team were Steve Pedersen, Ken Malcomson and Ken King along with Dianne Violini, Linda Malcomson and Jeanette Smeed. The locals broke the back of Manitoba in game three on Monday with as Cunningham, Violini and Linda Malcomson all rolled games over 300. Cunningham hit for a 317, Malcomson 311 and Violini 301. "We did the same thing to Ontario added a joyous Smeed. He was referring to game eight when Ken Malcomson hit for 340, Pedersen a 305, Violini 261 and Cunningham 262 for a total. Individually Cunningham enjoyed a 275 average for 10 games. He, along with Violini and Ken Malcomson, were the only ones to take part in all 10 games. Cunningham was brilliant in the third game Monday as he rolled a 390. He hit for nine straight strikes before missing. Ken Malcomson's total was next best to Cunningham's Malcomson averaged 260 for his 10 games. Rounding out the men, Pedersen took part in five games and had a 263 average while King rolled five games for a 229 mark. Violini, with 10 games to her credit, averaged 254 while Smeed hit for a 232 average and Linda Malcomson a 242. At present, travel arrangements for the trip home are still uncertain. Smeed hopes the new Canadian champions will be home Thursday. Meanwhile two young stars of five pin bowling won their first Canadian championship. Acclaimed as the women's open champion was a 21-year-old Jan Peters of Burnaby, B.C. The men's open singles champion was 24-year-old Ron Stansfield of Dryden, Ont. A breakdown of games, 10 in all, shows the consistency of the locals. GAME ONE Pedersen 229, Violinin 241, Ken Malcomson 244, Linda Malcomson 235 and Cunningham 326 for a total. GAME TWO K.

I The ASSOCIATED PRESS Even when Texas Rangers win, they look bad. Last year's worst American League baseball team turned a misplayed fly ball and a mis- fired squeeze bunt into a and beat .Kansas City Royals 3-2 despite themselves Tuesday night. "We got the kind of luck tonight that we have been looking said Texas manager Billy Martin. Pinch-hitter Jim Spencer was credited with a triple in the eighth inning when Cookie Rojas and Al Cowens collided running after his short pop fly to right. Then came the play that broke the Royals' back. Len Randle was on third, pinch-running for Spencer, when Dave Nelson missed a suicide squeeze bunt. In the rundown that ensued, catcher Fran Healy threw wildly past third baseman Paul Schaal, allowing Randle to score the winning run. Steve Busby was the victim of the Kansas City mistakes. In other American League games, Cleveland Indians beat Milwaukee Brewers 3-2, Minnesota Twins blanked California Angels 6-0, Oakland A's nipped Chicago White Sox 4-3 and New York Yankees stopped Boston Red Sox 2-1. Pitcher Tom Griffin of Houston Astros pitched a shutout Tuesday night but all he wanted to talk about was his home run. "You know how it is with said Griffin after he beat San Francisco Giants 4-0 in a National League baseball game. "Home runs are something special to a pitcher when he hits one." Griffin limited the Giants to three hits, but his big moment came in the fifth inning when he hit the fifth home run of his major league career with a man on base. "It was a breaking ball up high." said Griffin of the Jim Willoughby pitch that became his first home run of the sea- son. "It didn't quite come down like he wanted." Elsewhere in the National League, Philadelphia Phillies bombed St. Louis Cardinals 10-3, Pittsburgh Pirates defeated Chicago Cubs 8-5 in 12 innings, Montreal Expos tripped New York Mets 4-1, Atlanta Braves downed San Diego Padres 4-2 and Los Angeles Dodgers topped Cincinnati Reds 5-3 in 11 innings. Griffin threw only 93 pitches to beat the Giants. He retired the last 18 batters in a row and threw only seven non-strikes in the last five innings. Steve Carlton surrendered nine hits as he won his first game this season for the Phillies, who took their fifth game in a row. Mike Anderson hit a two-run double and Dave Cash drove in three runs for Philadelphia. The Herald Sports Rustlers are out KELOWNA, B.C.

The draw of April Glasgow officials tell fans stay away GLASGOW, Scotland (AP) Glasgow Celtic soccer club appealed today to its supporters to stay away from a potentially explosive European Cup game against Atletico Madrid in Madrid. Celtic, worried about the aftermath of last week's savage first leg in Glasgow, asked Scottish travel agents to suspend all bookings for charter flights to the return game next week. "We don't want the responsibility of having fans in Celtic Chairman Desmond White said. "Even the official party has been cut in size." The two teams are playing a semi-final of the European Cup of Champions. In the first leg in Glasgow, one of the roughest games ever seen in Britain, three Atletico players were sent off and seven booked by the referee, in addition to two Celtic men. Jimmy Johnstone, Celtic winger, was knocked to the ground in a fracas as the players were heading for the dressing rooms at the end of the matchd. No spectators were involved in the violence. Glasgow's soccer crowds are among the most fanatical in the world. FOUGHT POLICE When Glasgow Rangers, Celtic's old rivals, won the European Cup of Cup Winners in Barcelona in 1972, Scottish fans went on a rampage through Barcelona streets and fought pitched battles with police. Rangers were banned from European competition for a year as a result. Celtic won the European Cup of Champions in 1967, beating Internazionale Milan in the final in Lisbon. After the game thousands of Celtic supporters drank and celebrated in Lisbon streets. Hundreds lost their passports and air tickets and had to seek help from the British consulate. Scottish soccer writers have urged the European Soccer Federation (UEFA) to cancel the second leg of the Celtic Atletico semi-final and award the game to the Scottish team. The Celtic club has offered to send UEFA a film of the game. Jock Stein, Celtic manager, said: "When we are in Spain we must be careful. As a party we should stick together. That includes all of us, pressmen included."
