Skaters finish The second annual Lethbridge Summer Skating School is bearing a very successful end. Sunday will see the curtain ring down on the school currently being staged at Henderson Ice Centre. Conducted by manager director Mrs. Ann McDonnell, in co-operation with the City of Lethbridge, the six-week school attracted 125 entries from various parts of Western Canada this year. In 1973, the initial year of operation, 85 skaters took part. Six professionals instruct the skaters, aged seven to 18 years. While all skaters do not qualify for tests a large number of entries this year will be under the critical eye of judges Sunday in tests rang- ing from preliminary to gold. A majority of the judges will be from Calgary. The public is invited to attend the test sessions Sunday.

Reports persist that the team will either be purchased and moved to Charlotte, N.C., or be taken over by the league, possibly to stay in Detroit. Near perfect landing Lorraine Hoffman of Medicine Hat, on her gold test, does the splits at bottom right and then lands for a near perfect finish at Henderson !ce Centre.

The ASSOCIATED PRESS You know." observed Or- lando Cepeda. "I can still play baseball." Boston Red Sox apparently had their doubts during spring training, when they released the 36-year-old slugger. But given a chance recently by Kansas City Royals. Cepeda is proving the Boston brass wrong. Cepeda drove in five runs Friday night, pacing the Royals to a 13-3 romp over Milwaukee Brewers. In five games with his new club, he has seven hits in 23 times at bat and has driven in 10 runs. "I'd like to go back to May in the said Royals' manager Jack McKeon, who feels that if his club had Cepeda from the start of the year, it might be up with the front-running Oakland A's in the American League West. Elsewhere, Chicago White Sox beat Cleveland Indians 5- 3. Boston defeated Oakland 6- 2, Minnesota Twins beat Baltimore Orioles 6-2, Texas Rangers edged Detroit Tigers 4-3 in 14 innings, and Califor- nia Angels beat New York Yankees 7-1. After batting .289 with 20 homers and 86 runs batted in as Boston's designated hitter last year, Cepeda was releas- ed during spring training, along with another veteran, Luis Aparicio. He went home to his native Puerto Rico to think things out. Cepeda, a 16-year major league veteran who has a ca- reer average of .298 with 358 home runs, returned to baseball June 15. signing with Yucatan of the Mexican League. He was then signed by the Royals. Cepeda helped Royals ace Steve Busby post his 17th vic- tory against nine defeats. He doubled home two runs in the first inning, then slammed a bases-loaded double to drive in three more runs in the third.

The ASSOCIATED PRESS It didn't take Jim Northrup long to get himself acclimated to his new surroundings in the National League. Purchased by Montreal Ex- pos from Detroit Tigers earlier this week, Northrup at first balked at reporting, then showed up in time for Friday night's game at Houston. The Astros wish he had waited a little longer. The veteran outfielder stroked a game-tying home run in the seventh inning, and a single, touching off the winn- ing rally in the ninth as the Expos nipped Houston 4-3. Elsewhere, St. Louis Cardi- nals opened their East Divi- sion lead to games by defeating Los Angeles Dodgers 5-3 while second- place Philadelphia Phillies lost 3-2 in 11 innings to Atlanta Braves. The Dodgers maintained their lead in the West when second-place Cin- cinnati Reds dropped a 4-1 decision to New York Mets. Pittsburgh Pirates thumped San Diego Padres 7-3 and San Francisco Giants shut out Chicago Cubs 3-0. Northrup wasn't so sure that after 14 years with Detroit, he wanted to start fresh with a new team. But then, he never knew it would be this easy. "Baseball is a hard game no matter where you're said Northrup4after making it look awfully easy against the Astros. "I was just trying to do well." He was on base four con- secutive times reaching on an error and walking before tag- ging his homer in the seventh against Don Wilson and then singling in the ninth. The score was 2-2 in the ninth when Northrup laced his second hit of the game. He moved up on a walk to Ken Singleton and then scampered home on Barry Foote's single. Ron Hunt singled home another run. Consecutive homers by Pat Kelly and Jorge Orta started the White Sox off to four runs in the sixth inning as they handed Gaylord Perry his sixth consecutive defeat. Perry. 15-7. held the White Sox to two hits until Kelly and- Orta led off the sixth with homers to tie the score 2-2. Juan Beniquez's bases- loaded double keyed a four- run second inning that lifted Red Sox past the A's in a bat- tle of AL division leaders. Bill Lee, 13-10, stopped the A's on nine hits. Rico Petrocelli homered for Boston, Joe Rudi for the A's. The Twins grabbed a 6-0 lead with two runs in each of the first three innings and sailed past Baltimore. Larry Hisle and Harmon Killebrew had run-scoring singles in the first inning, Steve Brye and Danny Thompson had RBI doubles in the second and throwing errors by Brooks Robinson and Rich Coggins helped Minnesota to a pair of runs in the third.
