Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - April 24, 1974, Lethbridge, Alberta April 24, THE LETHBRIOQE HERALD Edwards' arm was second as Brock stole three times The ASSOCIATED PRESS Time hasn't caught up to Lou Brock either has catcher Johnny Edwards. The Houston catcher now knows that Brock, 34, can cover the 90 feet between the bases faster than he can throw. The St. Louis speedster tested Edwards' arm three times Tuesday and three times the arm came in second. "I don't think he's slowed down that said Houston manager Preston Gomez after his team was victimized by Brock and the Cardinals 8-2 in a National League baseball game. "And he probably knows how to run better." Elsewhere in the National League, Cincinnati Reds downed Chicago Cubs 5-3, San Diego Padres whipped New York Mets 10-2, Los Angeles' Dodgers overcame Philadelphia Phillies 5-3, and Montreal Expos trimmed San Francisco Giants 8-4. Brock, who has now stolen 646 bases in his career, the ninth best mark in history, is off to his best start. His three steals raised his major Toros have one week to regroup TORONTO (CP) Toronto Toros now have almost a week off before World Hockey Association playoff action time enough to realize that the championship final is still ahead of them and not won. After the Toros dropped a 4- 3 decision to Chicago Cougars in the second game of their semifinal Monday night, team captain Wayne Carleton said the squad was suffering a let- down after the quarter-final victory over Cleveland Crusaders. "Too many of our guys thought the series against the Crusaders was the Avco Kasting joins special team WINNIPEG (CP) The Canadian Amateur Swimming Association Tuesday named a 12-member team to compete May 11 and 12 in an international meet in Holland. Named to the team were Wendy Quick, Cathy Raferty, Ann Jardine and Marion Stuart, all of Pointe Claire, Que.. Janice and Patti Stenhouse of Vancouver, Julie Bonner and Merrily Stratton of Toronto, Gail Amundrud of Ottawa, Jennifer Frain of Winnipeg, Wendy Kasting of Lethbridge and Becky Smith of Edmonton. Coaches will be Doug Craer of Calgary and Monty Holding of Vancouver. Carleton said, referring to the league's championship trophy. "But we've been down before and we can come back again The Toros and Cougars now are tied 1-1 with the third game of the best-of-seven semi-final set for Sunday in Chicago. The fourth game will also be played in Chicago next Tuesday. The Cougars will be playing their home games in a small suburban arena after a Peter Pan show forced them out of their regular quarters at the Chicago Amphitheatre. "They'll have no advantage in said Toros coach Billy Harris. "From what I hear, only a few of the players have ever seen the rink where we'll be playing." Harris will put the Toros through daily workouts at a suburban Toronto arena until Saturday when they move to Chicago. "We're definitely not as sharp as we were against Harris said, looking back over Monday's game. "Maybe the Cougars are not letting us. We missed too many passes around the net. We also had a great chance to pull ahead 4-1 in the second period. That was the story.'' The Toros had a 3-1 lead midway in the second period but then watched the Cougars tie it up and Frankie Rochon scored the winner for Chicago in the third period. The WHA's other semi-final series also resumes Sunday at St Paul, Minn., where Min- nesota Fighting Saints hold a 21 lead in games over Houston Aeros. league-leading total to 11. He has been caught stealing only once this year. Besides his steals, Brock contributed three hits and two runs to the St. Louis attack which backed Sonny Siebert's eight-hit pitching. Reds 5 Cubs 3 The Cubs ended Roger Nel- son's no-hitter in the sixth and Cincinnati manager Sparky Anderson ended his night in the seventh, lifting him for a pinch-hitter with the Reds ahead 2-1. The pinch-hitter, Terry Crowley hit a sacrifice fly, making the score 3-1, and the Reds added two runs in the eighth. Padres 10 Mets 2 Randy Jones tossed a seven- hitter and John Grubb drove in four runs with a single, double and three-run homer as the Mets lost for the 10th time in their first 13 games. Dodgers 5 Phillies 3 Pinch-hitter Tom Paciorek slugged a three-run homer in the bottom of the ninth to beat the Phillies, who had taken a short-lived 3-2 lead in the top of the inning. Expos 8 Giants 4 Montreal scored five unearned runs in the sixth in- ning, two on Tim Foli's singles. Mike Torrez, 3-0, was the winning pitcher in the rain-delayed game. Northmen look for a home LOUISVILLE, Ky. (AP) Three top officers of Toronto Northmen of the World Football League were to arrive here tonight in their quest for a place to play. General manager Leo Cahill, one of those visiting Louisville, said the officers hope to determine fan enthusiasm, stadium availability and local financing. He said he considered the latter most important. "We don't want to come in like carpetbaggers and be strangers to the community. We're concerned that some local dignitaries be involved." President John Bassett and Herbert Solway, chairman of the board, are also making the trip. Gaudaur happy about approval TORONTO (CD The federal government's football legislation does -not adequately define the term import, Commissioner Jake Gaudaur of the Canadian Football League said Tuesday. Otherwise, Gaudaur said he is happy with Tuesday's approval in principle of the legislation, which would keep United States football leagues from placing franchises in Canada. The legislation was aimed at Toronto Northmen, who planned to operate in the new World Football League this season. "Obviously, we're pleased Parliament supported the government's bill but second reading does not make it said Gaudaur. "We're not celebrating in the league until it goes beyond third reading." Before it reaches third reading, it must be approved by an all-party committee, where amendments can be made. The bill which was approved Tuesday does not distinguish between "imports" and "naturalized Canadian citizens" as the league does. For CFL purposes, naturalized Canadians are classified as non- imports. league would have preferred to retain the right to adjust the import quota according to needs, but in view of the over-all legislation, the league supports the government's Gaudaur said. The bill calls for 55- per-cent of the players on CFL rosters to be non-imports in the corning season. Gaudaur said the league likely will decide at its semi-annual meeting in Edmonton in late May whether to achieve that quota by adding Canadians to the present roster limit of 32 or reducing the number of imports allowed. Bill Hodgson, owner of Toronto Argonauts of the CFL, said the Argonauts could have survived the competition of the Northmen, but that he feared the rest of the league would have collapsed. Hodgson said he was unhappy with news coverage of the controversy which depicted the CFL as "bush league." "Just because we haven't got an American stamp on us then we're supposed to be a bush league." He said newspaper advertisements calling for "a big league team for a big league town" were a "downright insult." IT WITH MY OWN IT WAS THE UTT1E ADED FELLER I'VE COME TO APOLOGISE, Ef JUST FOUND OUT IflMSNT WttNK MY PINT LAS'NISWT Roundup of bowling scores NFL feeling pressure NEW YORK (AP) The National Football League, feeling the pressure from the fledgling World Football League, begins a special meeting today that is expected to culminate later in the week in the of possibly franchises for the 1975 season. The leading expansion candidates are Memphis, Seattle, Phoenix, Tampa and Honolulu. A new franchise is expected to cost between million, a sharp increase from the approximate million paid by the owners of Cincinnati Bengals, the last And it could be a big factor in Memphis being granted an NFL franchise and Honolulu being rejected. When the WFL was looking for sites, it announced it would put a team in Memphis, but Memphis rejected the offer, saying it wanted an NFL nothing. Meanwhile, Honolulu grabbed one of the WFL's 12 invitations, and it is unlikely that the NFL would want to go into territory already occupied by the new league, and then possibly face a court battle. Honolulu's location and size are also a factor. It is about 000 miles from the nearest NFL city and about miles from the East Coast teams.
