SASKATOON (CP) Wil Homenuik of Winnipeg said Ih greens were "well-tracked" bu liot a five-under-par 65. Vaughan Trapp said he lias played in only three major tour namenLs this year because JK helps his father at the Victorii Golf Club. He also shot a 65. Both entered today's secom round of the 72-holc Canadian Professional Goiters' Associa tion tournament with a two troke lead over four other play ers, including Moe Norman Gilford, Out.

"The greens were a little had lots of traffii on they're the bes I've played on this he said. "I just hope I can keep it up The only lime I like to be lead ing is after the 72nd hole." Homenuik hit the greens ]5 times, two less than Trapp, anc weiu one-over-par on only lw< pa -feu r, 455-yarc fiflh and the par-tliree, 221-yarc 10th.

Campbell, speaking at the Lou Marsh Trophy dinner at Boston Bruins' Bobby Orr honored as Canada's outstanding athlete of 1070, said the confusion surround- ing Ihe freeze may necessitate a "moratorium of the rule (.hat players must lie signed before attending training camp. This is ojic of the things we'll discuss." Campbell. Eagleson, Bill Wirlz, NHL chairman and president of Chicago Black Hav.'ks. and William Jennings, New York Rangers president, will discuss (he freeze in a tel- ephone conference call. Eagloson said lie hoped Peter Rozelle, National Foot- ball League commissioner also M'ould lie involved. UPSKT BY CHARLIE 0. Eagleson said be was upset that Charles 0. Finley, Cali- fomia Golden Seals owner, is attempting lo make several of his players lake cuts in pay. (Finlcy) wants Eiily Hickey lo take a re- said Eagleson. "This is beyond belief. "I have said before that players eventually would have meeting set freeze lo accept culs in pay accord- ing lo performance, just as they ask for increases. "But. is ridiculous, lu baseball Ibey have cuts, bul Ihere is also a rule lhal a player can't be cut by more than 20 per cent of his sal- ary." Eagleson said about one- third of the NHL players have signed with Iheir respective clubs Detroil Red Wings have signed everybody, he said, ex- cept the two players he repre- sents, Tim Ecclestone and Marcel Dionne. Most of To- ronto Maple Leafs have signed. The most prominent un- signed figure is Orr for whom Eagleson is seeking a annual salary. "I haven't signed wilh the Bruins Orr explained, "so all summer Mill Schmidt (Bruins' general manager) and I haven't talked much." said Orr, acknowl- edging Schmidt's presence at the dinner, "with President Nixon's salary freeze, I guess he felt it was okay to come. Glad you could make it, Milt." YOUNG SIGNS VANCOUVER (CP) The British Columbia Lions of the Western Football Confer e n c e Thursday announced the sign- ing of all star running back Jim Young, who is in his fiflh season with the ciilb. RESIDENTIAL REPLACEMENTS LETHBRIDGE An assistant pro to his father Paul, in Victoria, Trapp said "the cov as relatively easy today because there was no wind. I've no complaints.' Norman, who hasn't finishec lower than third in any majol Canadian tournament this year had a 34, two under par on the front nine, and a one-under-par 33 on the back nine. Three strokes back of the leaders, and also selling their sights on first-place money ol ir (lie competition are Gary Slatter of Burlington. Ont., and Bill Wakeham of Cow- ichan, B.C. Both had two un- der-par 68s. Slatler said his goal is to stay in the 60s for the four rounds. "Moe (Norman) will be the one to beat in this tournament. Despite the tricky greens, he can knock the ball in from 10 feet. He doesn't worry about he's the best player in Canada al present." Meanwhile in Philadelphia the easiest way to tell the Hill brothers apart is on the golf course, where the younger Mike is as different from Dave as a is from going two over par. You could see Hie difference Thursday after Mike fired a seven-under-par t o take Ihe first-round lead in the Industrial Valley Bank Philadelphia golf classic. Contractors, Labor Club still alive The Contractors and the La- bor Club both kept alive in their best of five Senior Men's Faslball League semi final series coming up with victories Thursday night. The Contractors edged the Dallas Cowboys 3-1 behind Ron Zasadny's four hit pitching, but slill find [hcmselves one game from being elimuiated from the semi-finals.

In the hitting department Aaron Clements led the Con- tractors stroking a double while three others aided with a sin- gle apiece. Dan Santoni managed a dou- ble for the Cowboys.

Mike is the first to admit he's not as outspoken as Dave. "No sir, I don't even attempt he snapped, when asked if he spoke his piece in the Dave Hill tradition. He had 30 putts for his Thurs- day round with seven one-putt greens and only one three-putt, over-par hole.

Head home Sunday Lakeside out after setback TO VW THERE'S NO L MONTREAL (Special) "We'tfe coming home, bul not until Sunday." The old saying "all good tilings must come to aJi end" seemed to fit the Lelhbridge Lakeside Litlle League All- Stars trip to Saint Laurent, Que. "Our string just ran said coach Reed Spencer. "We couldn't be prouder of the boys, however, they performed ex- tremely well." Tlie we Spencer refered to was himself and manager Bill Taylor. Lakeside fell 8-3 to Brock- ville, Ont. Thursday and as a result were ousted (rom com- petition in the Canadian Little League finals. Brockville now must defeat Forest Hills, B.C. twice to earn Stackers return Sunday A new twist will be added ;o Sunday's stock car races, sponsored by the Southern Al- Derta Auto Racers. As usual 15 races will be staged at Exhibition Speedway jut a new category has been added. For the first time in .he history of the club a claim- ng race will be run off Sun- day. In the claiming race TJ class cars will race and can be claimed by anyone at the races :or get under way at 7.30 Mowing time trials. Lindy Smith, meanwhile, managed lo keep his lead atop he B class standings but Ron Boyce is quickly jamming the in second spot. Smith has earned 57K points while Boyce las come up with 54'.'i. Fred Deuschle is third with 41. Stan Praskach took over the ead in C class competition, 'raskach has accumulated mints as compared to 54'4i for Dick. Third place belongs jo Max Oerlli wild points. Len Vaselenak continues to outdistance the competition in V-8 Sportsman. Vaselenak has points to his credit while leorge Barringlcn and Tom Ayerhart bailie it out for sec- ond spot. Harrington has the ead at present with while Ayerhart has 44. a trip lo the Liltle League World Series in Williamsport, Penn. "It will be an experience that none of the boys will added Taylor. Even though their playing days at the final are ended there is still plenty to keep the boys occupied according to Spencer "We go on television tonight during the Expos' game and then Saturday we visit Man and His World." continued Spencer. Lakeside will head gome Sun- day morning at seven Montreal lime and arrive m Cal- gary al in :'M a.m. aboard flight 71. Dan Collinson was the big factor in the setback for Lake- side. The five-foot. JO-inch young- ster came hi in the third inning after Lakesida had tied the game at 3-3 and promptly set Lelhbridge down. He strucl; oul 11 Lelhbridge baiters and ended any chances of a victory for the Alberta representative's. Harvey Pocza went the dis- tance for the Alberlans and suf- fered the loss. Collison s three-run home run had given Ihe Ontario champs 3-0 lead before Lethbnc'ge deadlocked (he score. By using Collison in Thurs- day's game, Brockville coach Dave Wyatt must go against his original plans and use an- other pitcher tonight against Forest Hills. Litlle League rules slale lhal a pitcher must have a day's rest between games. ''We may not have beaten said Spencer, "but we upset Iheir strategy." 'I don't think B.C. should have any trouble now will] Col- lisnn out." he continued, "a t leasl now the championship should go to the west and that's some consolation." Lakeside's trip (o the Cana- dian final marked the second year in a row that a Lelh- bridge team has reached the national championship. Leth- bridgc Norcrest travelled to Thunder Bay last year and lost in the final. rTorse transfer nore difficult TORONTO (CP) It's be- :oming more difficult every day o transfer race horses between Canada and the United Slates ecausc of newly-instituted reg- lalions by bolh countries to revent Ihe spread of Ihe readcd Venezuelan horse riis- ase.

YfiP GOT A DKOf- O1 x BRANDY T SPARE FOR EITHER THE DOWN OR 'IS GIRL DITCHES bell Cincinnati Hebner breaks slump CINCINNATI (AP) Pitts- burgh's Richie Hebner, who couldn't fight out of a slump last week after a stint with the marines, finally found he still has some ammunition home-run ball. The Pirates third baseman went 0-16 in one stretch last week and struck out eight con- secutive times in the span. But Thursday night he rifled a Uiree-nin homer in Ihe ninth in- ning to help Pittsburgh bom- bard Cincinnati Reds 5-1. "I hadn't been hitting at all since I got out of the service a week ago Hebner said in an understatement. "I got ab- solutely no practice in while I was at Camp Pendleton but now I feel like I'm getting my stroke back. I just didn't seem lo be able to make any connection at all." Hebner's eight straight strike-outs tied a major league record and he jokingly said Thursday night that "I might as well have struck out the ninth time so I could have broken the record." The homer, his 17th, came off Cincinnati reliever Wayne Gran- ger, who hadn't yielded a run in his previous 14 1-3 innings, and (he round tripper helped snap the Reds' winning streak at four games. The homer was only the fifth hit of the contest for the Pir- ates, who had been shackled on two hits through eight innings by starter Jim McGlothlin who was lifted for a puichhitter. MeGlolhlin, who was charged wilh the loss, had given up only one homer by AJ Oliver the seventh inning. Meanwhile, Bob Johnson was coasting along and until the eighth inning, the Reds were able to pul only one man be- yond first base. Johnson, 8-8, hurling his seventh complete game of the season, scattered nine hits and allowed only n ninth-inning homer to Lee May. "It's the hardest Johnson has thrown all said Pitts- burgh manager Danny Mur- Uugh. "His fast ball was really good. Bul be needed lo pilch weU because McGJotlilin hurled an outstanding game." Cincinnati manager Sparky Anderson said (hat "I kept thinking we were going to gel lo Johnson but we came up short as have many times this season. That's the test I've seen him throw all year."
