You will also know that for years it was always north and south dividing the city. Did you know that there is a new set of You can't see them. But you can bet your bottom dol- lar they are there. They are there because to railroad someone or some- you need tracks. Through what can only be described as the ABA is doing all they can to clear a route for the Leduc Oilers into the Cana- dian senior baseball champ- ionships in New Brunswick this month. One can't blame the Oilers. They are simply the champ- ions of the ABA. But how would you if For those of you who are not familiar with what has taken place in the past two let me refresh your memory. as you all remem- played Triple A baseball last year before coming to the Lakers for the 1973 sea- son. He was greeted with open arms and earned his keep. His record over the season was 6-2 and should have been 7-1 but for a bad break in re- lief. He won the on'y game the Lakers won in the league playoffs besides winning in the all-Canadian playoff in July. He stands as a threat to the Chances of the ABA rep- resentatives. So what do you do with a You do For more than two months the registration forms of the Lakers have been in the hands of the ABA. The forms contain all information nec- essary to find out where a player last with how long and so on. For two months the ABA sat on their .hands and waited.

Sullivan was ruled ineligible because he was not out of professional baseball for a year. he was rein- stated on that charge Wed- nesday. The ABA's case wouldn't hold water. An ABA representative told ma sometime back that the Alberta group had a couple of tricks up their sleeves. They must have. When the attempt at stop- ping Sullivan because of last year's playing in Triple A failed the ABA went a step further. As it now stands Sullivan is ineligible because he did not reside in Alberta for five months prior to signing with the Lakers. How low can we go gentle- Hisaoka went on to say that Wilson admitted he made a mistake in appoint- ing Ron Hayter head of the weekend tourney. The Lakers have yet to see the roster of the Oilers. What is to prevent the ABA reps from allowing the same Leduc franchise from having ineli- gible players. Manager Taylor first thing we want to see is Leduc's registration What I don't is why should the Lakers suffer be- cause Wilson made a mistake and Hayter has a. bone to If this is the treatment teams from the Alberta Major League can expect from the ABA in future deal- ings I would suggest a sever- ing of relations.

Edmonton played Calgary Centennials this morning and needs a win to advance to a sudden death final against Calgary later in the day. Edmonton scored 11 runs against Jamie who pitched Lethbridge to a 4-1 vic- tory over Edmonton earlier in the tourney. Edmonton first got to Cogh- lin in the top of the second when Graham Atkins singled home Rod Koroll and Allen Buechler for a 2-1 lead. But Lethbridge bounced back with four runs in the bottom of the inning. One runner was walked and two more scamper- ed home on a passed ball. Lethbridge stretched the margin to 6-2 in the but in the top of the fourth Ed- monton struck back. The toll of having thrown 28 pitches in the second inning an'fl 23 in the third finally took effect on Coghlin's arm. He walked four of the.first six batters that and Ed- monton added three hits to produce six runs. The key blow was a two-run single by Jody Hulcio with one out. Coghlin again loaded the bases in the when he was relieved by Mark Szucs. After getting one Szucs ran up full counts on the next four bat- ters he and lost the first three. A two run single by Dennis Johnson then gave Ed- monton its second straight six- run inning. Szucs gave another pair of runs in the sixth before Rod Tomita was brought in to put out the fire. Wes Mucha meanwhile set- tled down to pitch three score- less innings for fin- ishing with 10 strikeouts. CRUZ CALLED UP ST.
