Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - April 29, 1974, Lethbridge, Alberta 12 THE LETHBRIDGE HERALD Monday, April 29, 1974 Olympic rules relaxed so mew fiat Professionals are still out LAUSANNE Switzerland (AP) Lord Killanin, president of the International Olympic Committee announced today a streamlined draft rule on Olympic eligibility to replace the stringent standards for amateur status championed by Avery Brundage, his American predecessor The draft was designed to end a long standing controversy over the issue that at its peak threatened a split in international sports It comprises two paragraphs confirming in essence that the Olympic Games are closed to professionals But bylaws spelling out details suggest a distinct liberalization compared with the present three pages of rules introduced in 1971 under Brundage It is my personal opinion that the current rule is Lord Killanin said in a letter which he sent with the draft rule to all national Olympic committees and international sports federations It has endeavored to state a philosophy lather than to make a firm rule The draft bylaws suggest a ban on carrying advertising material in an international competition This rule would replace the directive stipulating that an Olympic athlete must not have directly or indirectly allowed his name, his photograph or his sports performance to be used individually for advertising purposes Lord Killanin said IOC membership was evenly divided between a total ban on advertising and a ban at international level only, as envisaged by the bylaw He said that "in many countries national and club sports are sponsored and the running numbers carry the names of a commercial product This can be an affront to the freedom of the individual and indeed against his conscience, but without this structure there might be a drop in sponsorship The present rules forbid appearances on radio and TV during the Olympics in which an athlete is participating unless permission is received from his team leader The new bylaws do not include such a ban 'but naturally the competitor would be in breach of the eligibility Rule 26 if he personally obtained financial or material gain from any such work Lord Killanin said the present rule limiting fulltime training to a maximum of 60 days a year was "not enforceable and was not included in the new bvlaws The decision on this was left to the individual spurts federations to include in their own rules which again are subject to approval by the IOC The present rules allow an Olympic competitor to accept scholarships provided they are dependent upon the fulfillment of scholastic obligations and not on athletics The new draft bylaws delete all releience to scholarships Lord Killanin explained that they are "difficult to control" and "many of the scholars who have the opportunity of furthering their education which may be assisted by their sport do not necessarily gain materially but obtain an intellectual asset which contributes toward the ideal of the Olympics Lord Killanin said it has been suggested that an Olympic competitor should not be included in open world championships, but this was a "subject for discussion Athletes now are likely to be ineligible for Olympic competition if they compete as professionals in one sport and as amateurs in another Lord Killanin said the IOC executive committee considered unanimously that for an Olympic competitor such a rule would be impossible to control Such pro-am status is allowed under a new rule by the American National Collegiate Athletic Association NCAA Gilbert was headed for the bench Rangers, Flyers are all even NEW YORK (CP) Right winger Rod Gilbert says New York Rangers are optimistic facing Tuesday night's fifth game of their best-of-seven Stanley Cup semi-final in Philadelphia against the Flyers Coach Emile Francis of the Rangers echoed Gilbert s sentiments after the right winger's goal at 4 20 of the tirst sudden-death overtime period Sunday sank the Flyers 2 1 and earned New York a 2 2 tie in the series Tuesday s fifth game starts at 6 05 p m MDT We re optimistic Gilbert said We're going to go in there and play our style of game and come out a winner Gilbert made the prediction after explaining that it was only chance that saw him on the ice to score against Berme Parent and cause screaming fans to give him a standing ovation Ahe the goal was scored, the other two members of Gil- bert s line Rousseau and Jean were on the New York bench They had been replaced by Walt Tkaczuk and left winger Steve Vickers Gilbert said he also had been heading for the bench but when he found himself near the Philadelphia net and Vickers in control of the puck in the Flyers zone, he decided to stay Gilbert s short shot went be- tween Parent's pads The overtime situation was set up when Rousseau scored for the Rangers on a second- period power play to offset a first-period goal by defenceman Joe Watson of the Flyers And ironically, it was Watson who had the best opportunity to prevent Nettles' bat sizzles, 11 home runs in April The ASSOCIATED PRESS Graig Nettles has done something that home run king Hank Aaron has not been able to accomplish The New York Yankee third baseman broke an American League record and tied the major league mark with his llth home run of April during Sunday s 8-5 loss to Texas Rangers in the second game of a doubleheader It would have been a bigger thrill if it had been a game-winner Nettles said of his accomplishment The Yankees who beat the Rangers 11-2 in the opener, have the hottest long-ball hitter in the majors in Nettles His two-run homer Sunday off Ferguson Jenkins broke the AL record of 10 for April set in 1969 by Baltimore's Frank Robinson and tied the major league mark set by Pittsburgh s Willie Stargell in 1971 In other games, Baltimore Orioles nipped Oakland A s 4- 1 Minnesota Twins topped Milwaukee Brewers 6-5, Detroit Tigers beat Chicago White Sox 64, Boston Red Sox turned back Kansas City Royals 5-4 in 13 innings, and Cleveland Indians walloped California Angels 10-2 Cleveland defeated California 6-0 Saturday, Texas downed New York 6-1, Milwaukee blanked Minnesota 9 0, Kansas City hammered Boston 10-3, Oakland downed Baltimore 11-5, and Detroit beat Chicago 8-3 Ron Blomberg s three-run homer and Thurman Munson's solo shot highlighted a barrage of extra base hits that produced seven runs in the third inning powering the Yankees to their opening- game victorv over Texas Jenkins scattered eight hits and pitched his sixth con- secutive complete game for the Rangers in the nightcap The Texas ace allowed a run in each of the first two innings, the second on Blomberg's second home run of the day Jenkins then retired the next 15 batters until Bobby Murcer walked preceding Nettles home run in the seventh Jenkins became the first Texas-Washington pitcher since Dick Donovan in 1961 to fashion six straight complete games Designatea hitter Tommy Davis greeted Oakland relief ace Rolhe Fingers with a run- scoring single in the eighth in- ning lifting Baltimore over the A's Davis' hit scored Bobby Gnch, who opened the inning with a double off loser Ken Holtzman Bill Campbell posted his sixth save of the season, preserving a 6-5 victory for Minnesota over Milwaukee Campbell, who has not given up an earned run this season, came on in the seventh with one out and two runs home on Don Money's double He yielded a run-scoring single to Johnny Bnggs but then got George Scott, who had driven in two runs with a single and a homer to hit into a double play Willie Morton slammed his fifth homer of the season, dou- bled home another run and scored twice to lead Detroit over Chicago Bill Baker won't play in Toronto VANCOUVER Football League all-star defensive end Bill Baker says he won't play 'under anv circumstances' for Toronto Argonauts Baker played out his option last season with Saskatchewan Roughnders and then was traded to the Argonauts for Steve Smear and Pete Watson The Regina native, who now lives here, said he has sent a letter to Toronto general manager John Barrow and CFL commissioner Jake Gaudaur telling them he won't play for the Argonauts, preferring British Columbia Lions 'I wouldn't mind being part of the team, but I just can't stand the said the 255- pound end 'Right now, it's between Lions and the World Football League Baker said 'I'd love to stay here and play if some deal can be worked out between B C and Toronto Gilbert s winner The Philadelphia player was in the process of dumping the New York winger when Gilbert got the shot away In the second minute of overtime, veteran Flyers defenceman Barry Asnbee was struck near the right eye by a shot from the stick of New York s Dale Rolfe Ashbee left the ice on a stretcher and was taken to hospital where his condition was later described as good A hospital spokesman said it could take two days to deter mine the extent of Ashbee's injury, although preliminary revealed no broken bones Francis who had some anx- lous moments when his Rangers dropped two decisions to the Flyers in Philadelphia before winning the third and fourth games here said his confidence had not been shaken by the ear- lier losses I felt from the start we have a hockey cmb that won't be beaten Francis said It was no different when we were down two games than now when we are tied 2-2 They caught us when we were flat in the first game The second game we played well and lost a tough one The Flyers lashed the Rangers 4-0 in the opener and beat them 5-2 in the second game But the New Yorkers won the third game rough contest that saw 108 minutes in penalties called by referee Bryan Lewis Left winger Dave Schultz of the Flyers took 31 of the 81 minutes his team was assessed in that game But referee Lloyd Gilmour ruled the fourth game with an iron hand calling 10 mi- nor penalties and two majors in the opening period, he assessed only seven minors in the second and one in the third Parent was sensational and stopped 35 of 37 shots the Rangers fired at him New York s Ed Giacomin also had some key saves among the 20 shots by the

inning and scored on a double by Ted Sizemore giving St Louis an 8-1 lead When I got the hit I said, 'Hats', Gibson reported as he packed his surgery-scarred right knee in ice following the game "I

Cardinal attack wich three hits apiece St Louis shelled Clas Kirby for five runs in the first inning Brett, who set a record last year by homering in each of four consecutive pitching starts, belted a solo shot and Willie Stargell added a two- run homer m the Pirates's win over Houston Steve Yeager slammed a three-run homer to back the Dodgers four hit pitching of Doug Rau and Mike Marshall Ycager's homer highlighted a four-run fourth inning against Mike Torrez Rau limited the Expos to one hit through six innings Marshall took over in the seventh and retired pinch- hitter Ron Fairly on a

a six-hit shutout going into the last inning when he loaded the bases with one out on two singles and a walk Frank gave up a two-run double to Derrel Thomas, a two-run single to Rich Morales and a single to Nate Colbert and McCovey ripped his winning hit on the first pitch from Mac Scarce Bucks still alive KELOWNA, B C (CP) Murray Hanson scored on a "disputed play at 25 seconds of sudden-death overtime Sunday night to give Kelowna Buckaroos a 5- 4 win over Selkirk Steelers and' keep the Buckaroos alive in their Centennial Cup junior hockey semi-final Selkirk leads the best- of-seven series

Kaluzniak added singles Lofthouse scored twice for Kelowna, Monteith once The winning goal Sunday came as Dale Costanzo dug the puck out from behind the Selkirk net and passed in front where Hanson shot it in from the crease The play followed a breakaway by Archie McKmnon of the Buckaroos that was stopped by Selkirk goaltender Andy Stoesz with the puck going back of the goal Coach George Dorman of the Steelers insisted after the game that McKmnon s breakaway resulted from an offside pass They think they got a bad deal in Winnipeg, he said, referring to Kelowna complaints after the Manitoba leg of the series This is ridiculous1 Anybody in the rink could see that it was an offside Celtics triumph MILWAUKEE (AP) Boston Celtics challenged Milwaukee Bucks at their strength-supei stars Kareem
