"Douglas is our Xo. 2 quarter- back at the moment, unless someone else (urns up." TRIED FOR TRAIII-; McCafferty sairl the Colts tried lo trade Morrall after learning of his desire to con- tinue playing. "When n n f h i n g could he worked McCaffcrty said, "the only thing to do was put Mm on waivers and find out who was interested in him. The England-West Germany and Italy-Belgium matches this weekend are not the sore point, but future similar matches on closcd-circuitt de- vision are, especially since amateur soccer officials in Canada and the United States have no protection against them. Eric King, CSA executive director, said Tuesday in an interview; "If it were on home televl- at a time when direct conflict promotional vehicle for people who couldn't care less about the stale of Canadian soccer, I'm opposed to it. "This particular Saturday poses no problem, but we've heard the promoters plan a similar setup in a few weeks at at ime when direct conflict with Canadian professional soccer will occur. "As the sport's governing body in Canada we must he concerned. The U.S. is simi- larly affected and equally dis- turbed, "There's nothing basically wrong wiih the closed-circuit concept, but the sport affected should have some method of control, hard enough to pro- mete a spoil involving hom- ebred talent without being up- staged by unquestionable a better product- -yet reaping no benefit. "We appreciate the expo- sure such games provide to soccer, but object to some promoter recaping aU the mon- etary rewards. I think anyone promoting such an event should plow some of the pro- ceeds back into the sport in the country in which they aro showing the games." By THE ASSOCIATED I'HESS Wilbur Wood and his knuckle- ball are a potent weapon for Chicago White Sox. Wood lias pitched 36 innings this season and allowed exactly one run. Only a two-out homer by Kansas City Royals Bob Oli- ver, in the bottom of the ninth inning of his first start, mars Wood's pitching record so far. The rubber-armed right-han- der hurled his third consecutive shutout Tuesday night, bafflinfi Cleveland Indians 6-0 as the White Sox won their sixth slraight game. In other American I-eague ac- tion Tuesday, Oakland Athletics edged New York Yankees 4-3 in 12 innings, Minnesota Twins blasted Boston Hod Sox 12-0, Kansas City trimmed Baltimore Orioles 3-0, California Angels downed Milwaukee Brewers 4-1 and Detroit Tigers took Texas Rangers 4-1. The White Sox have played nine games this season and Wood has started four of (hem. He works with two days rest be- cause the knuckler puts vir- tually no strain on his pitching arm. DOUBLE PLAYS HELP The American League hitlers haven't been putting much of a strain on Wood either. The Indi- ans managed seven hits against the knuckler but three double plays kept Wood out of serious trouble. Chicago, which dropped its first Ihree games of the season before Wood straightened things out, struck for three runs in the sixth inning, snapping a score- less duel between the knuckle- 'bailer and young Milt Wilcox. j That was plenty for Wxxl, v.-hc got only one run in each of his first two starts this season. Pitching dominatcil elsewhere in the American League too. Dick Drago's two-hitter ended Kansas City's six-game losing streak as the Royals blanked Baltimore. California's Clyde IV right, Jirr. Perry of Minnesota and De- troit's Mickey Lolich all had four-hitters. WRIGHT DOUHLES Wright drove in two runs In Ihe sevenlh inning with a clutch double as the Angels snapped a 1-1 lie by scoring three times. Ken Berry's first homer of the year had given the Angels the early lead but the Rrewcrs tied it on Hick Auerbach's sacrifice fly. Lolich survived a shaky first inning to subdue Te.xas, ending the Rangers' four-game winning streak. Tony Taylor tripled home two runs for Ihe Tigers. Bill Frcehan's Mil-single sent Detroit ahead in the top of the first but the Rangers tied it on Frank Howard's booming dou- ble and had the bases loaded before Lolich escaped the jam I'KHIIY COASTS Perry coasted past Boston as Sieve Braun and Sieve Crye combined to drive in seven runs for Ihe Twins. Braun had a single and two doubles for four RBIs and Hrve All announced lop contender NEW YORK (CP-AP) Mil- hammad All, who fights George Chuvalo in Vancouver May 1, is listed by Ring Magazine in its April rankings as No. 1 con- tender for the heavyweight crown of Joe Krazier. Chuvalo, the Canadian heavy- weight champion, is not listed. The only Canadians to make rankings were lightweight the Al Ford of Edmonton, No. S challenger to Scotland's Ken Buchanan, and Clyde Gray of Toronto, listed No. 9 behind wel- terweight champion Jose Na- poles of Mexico, knocked in three runs with four straight hits. Minni'sola piled up nine runs in the first two innings, making it easy for Perry. It wasn't so easy for Oakland against the Yankees. The Ath- letics battled back from a 3-0 deficit, tying the score on a homer by Gene Tenace and a two-run triple by Sal Bando. Oakland finally pushed across the winning run in the 12th when rookie Bobby Brooks walked, moved up on a sacrifice and scooted home on pinch hit- ter Mike Hegan's first-pitch double. Downey ordered SAINT JOHN, N.B.

The Braves star currently is in Ihird place, four behind San Francisco's Willie Mays. In the other Nalional League games, Pittsburgh Pirates de- feated Cincinnati Iteds 5-2 in 13 invings; Houston Astros trimmed Chicago Cubs 5-4; New York Mets beat San Diego I'adres 2-1; Los Angeles Dodg- ers turned hack Montreal Expos ij-1 and Philadelphia Phillies blanked San Francisco Giants 3-0. TAKE EAKLY LEAD Aaron's two-run blast into the left field seats at Atlanta Stad- ium gave the Braves a G-0 lead after two innings. Earl Williams highlighted a four-run rally in the first with a two-run shot over the left field fence. Aaron, coming out of an early slump, has collected five hits in his last throe games and raised liis average to .176. The Pirates woti their game will] a d r a m a t i c, three-run homer by Richie Hcbner with two out in the Only a cou- ple of thousand fans were left by that time as temperatures dropped into the mid-30s in Three Rivers Stadium. "I hit the ball and I was thinking I'd have to go out and freeze again if it was said Ifebner. The ball, struck off former Pittsburgh left-hander Joe Gib- bon, sailed into the right field bullpen, where the Pirate pitch- ers had a fire going.

Today, at JB, Twamley faces perhaps the most distasteful act of his life: He will return lo England in June to begin an- other year of professional soc- cer with Hie Ipswich side. His former dream has become a nightmare. Three years ago. the young striker from Victoria was good enough to rate a look from Van- couver Royals and a contract from Tpswich. In his first pro season, he played 70 games with Ipswich's youth side. In his second, his time was divided between the reserves and the first team. The progress was steady, the future promising. QUIT LAST FALL And then last September, five weeks into his third season, he quit. "It was an accumulation of he recalled in an inter- view. "I was homesick, I wanted to finish school, and I had decided that Ihe pro game just wasn't for me any- more. There was something else I wanted to do." What Twamiey wanted to do was play for Canada in the World Cup elimination matches with the United States and Mex- ico_ When tie talks about that desire, you can almost see the Canadian Mag unfurling behind him. So he wrote to the Canadian Soccer Association for permis- sion to play amateur soccer here. Ho told them that he planned to live in Canada, had uo more interest in pro -soccer, and simply wanted to play for his country. The reply came promptly: No. Ipswich had suspended him, and the Football Association had said he couldn't play soccer anywhere, cither as an amateur or a pro. Because the CSA had an agreement with the Football Association, he might as well forget about playing amateur soccer in Canada. "That's what I tried to he said. "Forget it." Twamley tried coaching for a while, but the realization wasn't long in coming: "They know they've got me. They've had me all along. They've played on my being keen for the game. They said a Ifl-year-otd who's been playing that long couldn't just quit, and they were right." So he's going back for a serf- son he doesn't want lo play, to complete a contract he wishes he hadn't signed, CKDKXO .SUSPENDED HOUSTON (AP) Outfield- er Cesar Cedeno of Houston As- tros was suspended for three games and fined by Na- tional League president Charles Fceney after being ejected from the Astros-Chica- go Cubs game in the ninth inn- ing Monday night.
