Jimmies visit admits he T Lakers tonight blew it HAMILTON (CP) Coach John Rauch of Toronto Argonauts admitted he made the wrong decision on the crucial play which turned Tuesday's Eastern Football Conference game around in favor of Hamilton Tiger-Cats. "Now that I can look back and see what happened, I can say I wouldn't do it Rauch said after the game. The game was tied 22-22 with about 10 minutes remain- ing when Rauch gambled. The Argos were on third down, needing two yards and instead of calling for a kick, Rauch sent in a running play. The Ticats stopped the play, took over in good field position and went on to a 29-22 win.

Wayne Carleton of Toronto Toros. leading scorer in the WHA from Dec. 9 to Feb. 25 last season, said at his home near Collingwood, Ont., Wednesday night he wasn't in- vited to join the team. "I think they picked a lot of old guys." he said, "MacGre- gor. Mahovlich. Hull, Howe, all 34-35 or over." "No one invited me. No one mentioned it to me. I think it's politics. But it's their business what they do." Billy Harris, coach of the Toros and Team Canada, re- futed Carleton's statement. "I'm sure he was said Harris. "He led the selec- tion committee to believe he wasn't only player to do so." Carleton said: "Look at Danny Lawson. They didn't pick him. either." Lawson scored 50 goals last season for Vancouver Blazers. Team Canada will play an eight-game series against the Soviet Union's national team in September and October. Meanwhile, Pat Stapleton, player-coach of Chicago Cou- gars, said of those chosen: "These guys have something to prove because they weren't picked for Team Canada 72." Stapleton, 35. a member of the 1972 National Hockey League stars who edged the Russian team 4-3-1 in an eight- game series, said he was reluctant to join the current Team Canada because he felt his obligation was to his own team. "The WHA owners were of the opinion that the league should be well represented for the Russian said Stapleton. "Certainly the team on paper isn't as strong as said Stapleton." but one thing in this team's favor is that it will be ready." Consultant Dr. Bob Goode said it was too early to give an estimate of Team Canada's condition, but he is urging the players to engage in short- interval running, in addition to tennis, golf and racquet ball. Joining Stapleton on the WHA Team Canada defence on the 25-man squad will be Al Hamilton. Edmonton Oiiers: Paul Shmyr, Cleveland Crusaders; Brad Selwood and Rick Ley, New England Whalers; J. C. Tremblay, Quebec Nordiques. Marty Howe, Houston Oilers, and Rick Smith, Minnesota Fighting Saints. The goaltenders will be Houston's Don McLeod, first team all-star in the WHA last year, and Cleveland veteran Gerry Cheevers. The forward alignments will come from Andre Lacroix of San Diego Mariners; Mike Walton, Minnesota Fighting Saints; Edmonton's Jim Harrison; Frank Mahovlich and Paul Henderson, Toronto; Legionettes host finals Lethbridge Legionettes could possibly face their stiffest competition of the 1974 Softball season when they host the Alberta intermediate C women's finals this weekend. The Legionettes will host two other provincial zone representatives in a two-day double-knockout tourney which starts Saturday and concludes Sunday at the Dave Elton Park. The Legionettes and Calgary Richfield Phillies will officially open the championship playoff tourney at Saturday night. The losers of this match will then be forced to hit the diamond again at eight o'clock against Lougheed (northern champs) while tne winners will earn a bye into the finals. Action will continue Sunday with games slated for 11 a.m., one o'clock and if necessary, three o'clock. Bruce MacGregor. Edmon- ton; Tom Webster.

Progress made says mediator WASHINGTON (APi Negotiations toward ending the 32- day National Football League player strike made headway- Wednesday, as chief federal mediator W.J. Usery supervised nearly 14 hours of discussions. The groups adjourned at a.m. EDT and were to resume bargaining at 2 p.m., EDT today. Usery would not elaborate on the progress made in the ses- sion with representatives of the NFL Players Association and NFL management council. "We have been talking on all the been talking long and hard." said Usery. "The logic is that now that we've got them talking, there's a chance to consummate an agreement." He told newsmen that "substantive issues had been dis- cussed." The statement apparently referred to the "freedom issues" which created the bargaining stalemate and led to the player Strike that started July 1. Meanwhile, the striking players received a boost from an- other source. Marvin Miller, executive director of the Major League Baseball Players Association, voiced his support for the foot- ball union and charged NFL owners with a failure to bargain in good faith. But the NFL players' picket line continues to display gaps. Nearly 270 veterans, including 75 starters, have crossed the line. The latest dissenters from the position taken by the member union were kicker Garo Yeprernian, linebacker Mike Kolen and defensive back Tim Foley of Miami: safety Jack Mildren and linebacker Bob Geddes of New England; defensive tackle John Little of New York Jets, and linebacker Don Rives of Chicago.
