Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - April 22, 1974, Lethbridge, Alberta He LETHBHIUGE April ZZ, Rogers runs his record to 3-0 for the Expos Pirates9 bats help cure ailing Murtaugh By THE CANADIAN PRESS Pittsburgh Pirates found the right prescription for their ailing manager Sunday, but Tom Seaver is wondering what's happened. Pirate manager Danny Mar- taugh had the flu Sunday and was forced to watch his team's National League baseball game on television from an office at New York's Shea' Stadium. "That's the best medicine I could've he said after watching the Pirates smack Seaver and three New York relief pitchers for 20 hits en- route to a 7-0 win over the Mets. Included in the Pittsburgh barrage were home runs by Manny Sanguillen, Richie Heber and Al Oliver. EXPOS TOP CARDS In Sunday's other National League games, Montreal Expos downed St. Louis Cardinals 9-5, Houston Astros edged Atlanta Braves 4-3, Philadelphia Phillies whipped Chicago Cuks 7-3, San Harrah flattery flopped, umpire stuck to guns THE CANADIAN PRESS Flattery is supposed to get you nowhere, but it got Toby Harrah of Texas Rangers a quick trip to the dugout Sunday. The Rangers were trailing Minnesota Twins 5-0 and had the bases loaded with none out with Harrah on second in the seventh inning of an American League baseball game they eventually lost 8-2. Jeff Burroughs slashed a grounder toward short and the ball hit HarAh. That's when the fun began. Second base umpire Ron Lu- ciano ruled Harrah deliberately ran into the ball. He called both Harrah and Burroughs out ior a double play with no advance. "I asked why he called it a double play, how did he know there was said Harrah. "He said, 'A good base- runner would try to get hit in a situation like that and you're a good base-runner." Since there wasn't much he could say to that, Harrah's next performance was a slow FOR A FUTURE?

(AP) Wren Blair criticized president Walter Bush Jr. of Minnesota North Stars on Sunday and said he suspected collusion in his firing as general manager of the National Hockey League club. Blair said in a telephone in- terview from Des Moines: "In fact, my firing was planned some time ago and I don't think it would have made any difference if we would have made the playoffs or not." Bush cited the seventh- place finish in the National Hockey League's West Division by the North Stars as the reason Blair was fired after serving as the team's only general manager since before the 1967 expansion. Blair, 48, said he was fired because of jealousy relating to his ownership of the prospering Saginaw team of the International League. "My comments are not di- rected at the said Blair. "They're pretty fine people. "Sifting through their back- grounds, the decision was left to one person. Walter was given the free hand to make the decision. When and if certain things happen, I will have more comments at that time." Bush has said he will an- nounce a successor to Blair within two or three weeks. Coach Parker MacDonald said Saturday in Bloomington that the firing of Blair probably means the club will be looking for a new coach. "I guess I can sort of see the handwriting on the wall for me." said MacDonald. "I am surprised he was fired." MacDonald took over the struggling North Stars from Jack Gordon early last season as the team failed to make the Stanley Cup playoffs for only' the second time in its seven- year history. Lee Elder plans to accept invite PENSACOLA, Fla. (AP) There's no longer any question about it. "I will definitely accept an invitation to the Masters and I will definitely play in the Lee Elder said in an interview Sunday after winning the Monsanto Open golf tournament. Elder's victory, secured by a birdie on the fourth hole of a sudden-death playoff with England's Peter Oosterhuis, made him the first black ever eligible to compete in the Masters, until now an ail-white affair. For a while, Elder left things up in the air accepting a Masters invitation. "There's a lot of tournaments and a lot of playing to be done between now and then. Anything can Elder said. Moments later, Clifford Roberts, the man who runs the all- invitational Masters, issued a statement saying Elder definitely will be extended an invitation to the 1975 tournament. "That's Elder said. "Tell Mr. Roberts I'll see him at the Masters." Elder is not the first black to win a tournament. Charley Sifford and Pete Brown both scored wins in regular tour events. But their victories came before the Masters changed its rules to make all winners of regular tour tournaments eligible for inclusion in the Masters field. The exclusion of blacks had opened the Masters to widespread charges of racial discrimination, which was repeatedly denied by Roberts. Elder staged a comeback to win Sunday's tournament. He birdied the 15th hole, parred the 16th and was two strokes back with two holes to play. He made up one shot with a seven iron to three feet and birdie on the 17th, then hit a magnificent hook from behind a couple of trees to tie Oosterhuis with a 274 for the regulation 72 holes and force the playoff. Al Gieberger, with a 70 for a 276 total and Miller Barber and Ray Floyd, who each had 68s on the par-72 course for 278 totals, followed. At stake in the playoff was a first prize. Toros, Crusaders do battle tonight TORONTO (CP) Centre Ralph Backstrom says both his Chicago Cougars and Toronto Toros "were a little flat" in the opening game of their World Hockey Association semi-final playoff series. "We both came out of a tough quarter-final series and it is like starting all over said Backstrom, who had 33 goals and 50 assists for the Cougars in regular-season play. "But the play will get better as the series progresses. You'll get those little grudges going. I think it will be a long series and a good Backstrom said. The Toros, who eliminated Cleveland Crusaders in an earlier series, defeated the Cougars 6-4 Friday. The second game will be played here Monday with the third and fourth games in Chicago next Sunday and Tuesday. Backstrom played on six Stanley Cup championship teams while a member of Montreal Canadiens of the National Hockey League. He also was with Los Angeles Kings and Chicago Black Hawks of the NHL and collected 278 goals and 361 assists in regular-season games. He left the Hawks after last season to join former teammate Pat Stapleton, who signed on as player-coach for the Cougars. Backstrom believes it will take extra work in practice to remain sharp because of the amount of time off between games. "I think the players can use the time off at this stage in the season to rest some minor aches and he said. "But it means pushing yourself harder in practice and maintaining a good mental attitude." Stapleton says hard work put the ousted defending champion New England in quarter-final the series against the Toros. "The last six or eight weeks, that's what it's work. No rabbits, out of a hat, no deep, involved reasons." Pollock will keep Bowman MONTREAL (CP) Sam Pollock, general manager of Montreal Canadiens, said in an interview Sunday he does not plan to replace Scotty Bowman as coach of the National Hockey League club, eliminated Thursday in its Stanley Cup quarterfinal round against New York Rangers. "I know that Scotty was heavily criticized during the season and after the recent Pollock said. "I have no excuses to offer for him. I know other coaches who have undergone the same treatment. "I do not hold Bowman re- sponsible for the elimination of the Canadiens. I believe that he has done some fine work in the past three years. "He was the same man this season as he was in 1972-73 when we won everything.
