'THE VlRfirlN'AN COMES ON AT MISTER CAPP, R KNOW ANYTHIN5 ABOUT _ TELEVISION? N'T LET ME DEUAV Perry dislikes resting, Renko outduels Carlton By THE ASSOCIATED PRESS The new designated bitter rule of the American League means more rest for the work- ing pitcher, but it might also have an adverse effect if the rest period is too long "The long innings we had made me cool winning pitcher Jim Perry of Detroit said Wednesday after the Ti- gers beat Boston Red Sox 7-1. Maybe Ferry coo'ed off v.hile his team-mates blasted Boston pitching, but it didn't hurt him too much. He went the d'stance, giving up five hits and one walk while striking out three for his second win against no losses. "But I told the guys to keep getting he continued, "and that I'd make out somsway." In other American League ac- tion Wednesday, Milwaukee Breviers blanked Cleveland In- dians 4-0. Chicago White Sox edged Texas Rangers 6-5, Cali- fornia Angels beat Minnesota Twins 3-2, New York Yankees defeated Baltimore Orioles 7-4 and Oakland Athletics beat Karsas City Royals 7-6. The Tigers, who took their thud straight from the Red Sox at Boston, pounded Red Sox patching for i'7 hits, with Wil'ie Horton, Al Kaline and Ed Brinkman each hitting a homer. Horton was also 4-for-4 at the plate. "They did a good job of get- ting me Perry said. "I told Kaline I wanted a run from him and he hit a homer his first tone up. Horton also told me he'd get me a run The Red Sox didn't cross the plate until the ninth inning when Luis Aparicio singled, moved to second on a groundout and scored on a single by desig- nated hitter Orlando Cepeda. "I always start a season hop- ping to do better than the last." says pitcher Steve Renko of Montreal Expos. Renko may not better his 1972 record, although it would be hard to do any worse, but he's assured Mmself of doing at least as well. The tall right-hander, who won his 1972 debut and then suf- fered through a horrible 1-10 summer, hurled a four-hitter in his first 1973 appearance SOUTHERN ALBERTA BUSINESS SAMPLER Some doubt we will not host Games? MUNICH, West Germany (Reuter) Willi Daume, vice- president of the Internptional Olympic Committee said Wednesday that a final decision would be made next month on whether Montreal is to stage the Summer Olympic Games. He told a press conference that he would be going to Mon- treal to discuss the issue with the Games' organizers during a fact-finding mission for the IOC. "I still believe Montreal will stage the he said. "If the Canadians decided now not to stage the Games, it would mean a great loss of prestige for the country." Daume said he hoped that during his visit be would see work actually in progress on some of the Olympic projects as veil as being able to study plans for the Games in 1376. The planned Montreal Games have been criticised because of costs involved in staging them. The organizers have been under pressure from some groups to abandon the project. Asked what would happen if Montreal opted out, Daume said: "I have not yet consid- ered this possibility but there is no chance that Munich will take them over." Wednesday and outdueled Cy Young Award winner Steve Carlton in pitching the Expos to a 2-1 National League baseball triumph over Philadelphia Phillies. It came one year to the day after his lone 1972 success, in which he beat New York Mets, and was his first complete game since Sept. 16, 1971. "Of course, in this case I'm hoping to do better than I did in 1971." said Renko who won 15 games in 1971 and 13 in 1970. "All I have to do to be better than last season is show up." METS SCORELESS AGAIN Elsewhere in the National League, Chicago Cubs nipped New York Mets 1-0 for the sec- ond day in a row. San Fran- cisco Giants edged Atlanta Braves 4-3 on Bobby Bonds' llth-inning homer, Pittsburgh Pirates beat St. Louis Cardinals 8-2, San Diego Padres defeated Cincinnati Reds 4-2 and Houston Astros beat Los Angeles Dodg- ers 7-2. Renko held the Phillies hitless until the sixth, when they touched him for two hits. The other two hits and their only run came in the ninth. Mean- while, the Expos scored both their runs off 27-game winner Carlton in the first inning on singles by Hal Breeden and Jorge Roque. Just Arrived!

Amateur draft moved ahead to May 17 Merger talk poorly-kept secret NEW YORK (CP) It was a distasteful job for Clarence S. Campbell to effect deliv- ering a public rebuke to a small group of National Hockey League dub owners who talked out of turn. The NHL president wasn't in the best of health Wednesday when he told a news conference the league had to officially dis- sociate itself from the actions of the dissident owners or condone them. Under the intense pressures from its players' association and a million or more anti- trust suit, the NHL's board of governors repudiated the recent secret talks between four NHL and three World Hockey Associ- ation owner-trustees. The merger talks probably were one of the worst-kept se- crets of the year and were auickly brushed aside by the WHA at a two-day meeting in New York last week. Wednesday, the NHL, in a formal statement by board chairman Bruce Norris, presi- dent of Detroit Red Wings, said it never had associated itself with merger talks or any agree- ment settling the differences be- tween the two leagues. Bill Jennings, president of New York Rangers who appar- ently initiated the secret talks, was rapped hard on the knuck- les for his action. He was not available for comment Nprris proposed a pair of res- olutions, approved by NHL law- yers, which said in brief: NHL "never associated itself with, and in fsct does aot accept the recent discussions" between the leagues "and such discussions were completely unofficial and not authorized. discussions "shall not be renewed by any NHL mem- ber club" directly or indirectly. The resolutions were adopted unanimously by the board. "In any democratic organ- Campbell said, "indi- vidual can act as thev wish but unless we repudiate the talks it would appear we condone them.'' When Alan Eagleson. execu- tive director of the players' as- sociation, learned of the secret talks, held on March 25 and Aoril 1, he threatened an imme- diate injunction against the merger. Eagleson's contention was that such a merger would Tiurt the bargaining rights of players bv removing the prime element of competition. "Any merger would bring a substantial reduction in salaries and, for that reason alone, we oppose he said earlier this month. After the board's decision Campbell sent a telegram to Eagleson assuring him there would be no merger. Eagleson got the telegram shortly before he flew to Lon- don from Toronto, and ob- viously was delighted. He had given the NHL until Friday to make up its mind. "That was the point we were trying to get he said. Campbell conceded that demand for ever you want to call the players' association primar- ily led to the board's repudia- tion of any merger. The NHL and WHA are gird- ing for battle in the courts, and Campbell said it will be a long, hard fight. NHL lawyers imposed an "in- junction on Campbell not to discuss the case further. Gary Davidson, president of the WHA, has disclosed that the new league will go ahead with its anti-trust lawsuits seeking from the NHL damages "m ex- cess cf million on all ac- counts The WHA alleges that the NHL is engaged in a conspiracy to monopolize major league hockey and prevent com- petition. The NHL has been giving daily testimony in the courts re- garding its s'tructure and its j power. About 15 lawyers have i been lumped into one known as I a "multi-district action." Both sides expect the case to be beard in federal court in Philadelphia in early fall. For three hours at the league meeting Wednesday, lawyers discussed the litigation, reading depositions and other docu- ments. The 67-year-old Campbell City champ Gordon Kometz came up with a solid effort recent- ly in the city 10-pin championships as he toppsd all bowl- ers to take the men's title in the one-day, nine-game roll- off staged at the Downtown Bowladrome.

It was the first win on for- eign ice in the senes Oil Kings taking the first two games in Edmonton and Ti- gers winning the next two in Medicine Hat. Game six will be placed in Medicine Hat Fri- day. Tfe seventh game, if need- ed, will be back in Edmonton Saturday. Dick Jellema, Jim McCrun- mon, Ed Johnstone and Tom Lysiak scored for Tigers in the third period as the team came back. Larry Hendrick, in the Edmonton nets, looked shaky on all four goab. Hendrick had played well to that point as Ti- gers outshot Oil Kings 43-25. L a n n y McDonald opened scoring for Tigers at of the first period with Medicine Hat playing two men short. Hendrick did not react to tie shot. Oil Kings stormed back 66 seconds later with a power-play goal by Fred Comrie. With Tigers on the power play three minutes later, Mc- Donald scored bis second goal, only five seconds after Oil Kings Keith MacMe was sent off with a high-sticking penalty. Tigers found themselves with another power-play opportun- ity later, but John Rogers scored a short-handed goal for Edmonton as Terry McDonald i3t him up in front of the net. Mike Will passed from the corner to Rogers for a tip-in goal three minutes into the sec- ond period. Will came back with a goal of his own on the power play at on a shot that went in off Lanny McDonald's stick. At that point, Tiger coach Jack Shupe put Sam Clegg in the goal for his first appearance of the series, replacing starting goaltender Jerry Thomas. From the beginning of the second period until well into the third. Oil Kings controlled the game with a close-check- ing aggressive style of play. However, at of the third. Jellema cleared the puck from the corner in front of the Oil King net. Hendrick went down on his knees to freeze the puck but misjudged and it slid in. JUNIORS AVD SENIORS Pijlmn 323 WEO.

NHL will await the out- come of an appeal before mak- ing any decision on the status of owner Tom Scallen of Van- couver Canucks, sentenced to two concurrent four-year terms on charges of theft of S3 million and issuing a fake prospectus. He is free on bail pending the appeal. Meanwhile, he will con- tinue to sit at board meetings but will abstain in the voting. amateur draft has been advanced almost a month, to May 17 at Montreal. Camrobell said the NHL wanted to avoid conflict with the annual league meeting in Montreal June 10. The draft was moved ahead, Campbell said, "because you have no idea the ternble dis- ruption it creates at annual meetings.'' The WHA is expected to join the draft war early also, and league president Davidson has said he planned talks with Ca- nadian Ainateur Hockey Associ- ation officials over possible pay- ment for juniors. Campbell said he feels the NHL will do all right in the draft because the CAHA knows they will get "the money from us."
