Manchester fans erupt, almost destroy stadium LONDON (CP) Manchester United, once the pride of British soccer, was dropped from the English League's First Division amid chaos Saturday. Their last home game of this season, against cross-town rival Manchester City, was abandoned five minutes from the end as hundreds of fans swarmed around the pitch, police made dozens of arrests, players ran for safety, and smoke from a fire in the stands rose like a funeral pyre. The scenes were sparked by a goal from City's Dennis Law which condemned his former team to the drop after a 37-year run in the First Division. Ironically, the result would have made no difference anyway because Birmingham beat Norwich 2-1 to ensure that United and Southampton would occupy the two remaining relegation spots. But the action of United's partisan supporters left the club facing closure of their ground for the early games next season, and probably further disciplinary action. WON FIVE TITLES During their post-war spell in the premier division, Manchester United won the league title five times, the F.A. Cup twice and the European Cup once. An emotional loudspeaker appeal by Sir Matt Busby, whose name is synonymous with the club's past glories, failed to budge the rioting fans. Southampton, meanwhile, went down despite a 3-0 win at Everton. Peter Osgoode, after 10 sterile matches since joining the side from Chelsea in early March, scored the first goal and set up the second for Mick Channon. Brian O'Neail got the third. Birmingham got goals from Bobby Hatton and Ken Burns just before half time that wiped out the second-minute lead David Stringer had given Norwich, already doomed to relegation. The new champions, Leeds United, ended the season with a 1-0 win at Queen's Park Rangers that took their final points total for 42 matches to 62. They lost only- four matches. CLARKE WINS GAME The game was settled by a 57th minute Allan Clarke goal. Liverpool, facing a F.A. Cup final against Newcastle next week, snatched a 2-2 draw at West Ham through a header by Kevin Keegan in extra time. Newcastle also drew, 1-1 at Burnley, where Malcolm MacDonald grabbed another goal to keep himself sharp for Wembley. Derby took third place behind Liverpool in the league, by beating Wolverhampton 2-0 at the expense of Ipswich, which lost 1- 0 at home to Sheffield United. Meanwhile, Luton returns to the First Division next season after a 16-year absence. Luton held West Bromwich 1-1 Saturday to make sure of going up with Middlesbrough. Orient must beat Aston Villa Friday to steal the third promotion place from Carlisle, which triumphed 2-0 over Villa in their last game. Miller captures fifth CARLSBAD, Calif. (AP) Johnny Miller wasn't expecting to win the Tournament of Champions. Not after that opening round 75. Miller claimed his fifth pro- fessional title of the year Sun- day with a clutch shot on the last hole that let him avoid a sudden-death playoff with Buddy Allin and John Mahaf- fey. Miller, the U.S. Open cham- pion and sensation of the tour this season, was the only man in the elite field of 25 tourna-' ment winners who broke par. He had a 69 and a 280 total. Allin and Mahaffey, now a runner-up three times this season, each had a share of the top spot until they bogeyed the 72nd hole. They tied for second at 281, Mahaffey with a final 70. Allin with 71. Billy Casper was alone at 283. The group at 285 included Gene Littler, Jerry Heard and Hubert Green. STAMPEDE WRESTLING TONIGHT AT P.M.

Gretzinger a shade away from a perfect game High school bowlers just great They came, they saw, they conquered. The best high school bowlers in Alberta invaded Capri Bowl Saturday and when they had left they took a big part of the lanes with them. Seldom do the pins take such a beating. Doug Morrical of Red Deer won the boys' title while Loretta Fowler of Drayton Valley won the girls' crown. Team honors went to Lethbridge-Pincher Creek- Warner-Turner Valley club for the girls, while the boys' title went to Medicine Hat- Brooks. Mixed honors were won by the Ponoka- Wetasklwin-Drayton Valley- Camrose team. Morrical was 106 pins better than his nearest opponent, Doug Johnson of Wetaskiwin as he hit for games of 242, 270, 250, 256, 323, and 300 for a total. Johnson, on the other hand, had games of 241, 234, 264, 275, 207, 314. Third and fourth places went to Lethbridge bowlers, ROSS RALPH KUNG-FU STUDIOS Northern Southern Systems Flnnl Equipped with Private Inttructlen t StrMt ;
