C. 'Martin's two-run double ui the eighth inninp. Jenkins, as usual had his proljlems in (he early going, being clipped for two runs and three in Uie first inning. But after thai, he blanked the Astros on six hits. "I didn't have as much veloc- ity on my fast ball arid it wasn't moving as iveJI as be said. "Thai's what they were hitting in the first inning! when all those hits just got by the Ln- ficldcrs. ''My fast ball wouldn't do n thing in Llie first couple of jn- ning.s." After that, he was virtually untouchable, as the Astros can testify. SULLY SAYS -By Pal Sullivan Reed SpGiicGr hung up the phone from -Montreal Thursday it brought to an end yet another bid by Lelhbridge Little League teams to capture a Canadian lillc. Spencer, along with Hill Taylor, handled the Lake- side Little League All Stars who Thursday were eliminated from the dominion championship by Brockville, Ont. They say Ilia! close only counts in horseshoes and curling, but close lias connled a great deal to Loth- bridge Little League officials the past two seasons. Last year at this same time Jim Szucs and Jolm Koskoski had tlie Lethbridge Novcrcsl Little League All-Stars in Thunder Bay where they lost out in the final. great deal can be said for an association that, for two years running, has a team in the Canadian Little League championship. Add to this the appearance, in the last two straight seasons, of the Lelhbridge Junior Miners in the Canadian championships and the bouquets of con- gratulations should fill an auditorium. this representation means is that, in all of Canada, a Liltlc League team from Lcthbridgc fin- ished in third place while our juniors were well up in I he 10 in the nation. Enough can't he said for the people who are responsible for bringing such recognition to our fair city. Can you imagine Hie effect it would have on Lelhbridge if one of Ihese clubs were to win a Cana- dian title? I spent a good hour the other day looking through the exchange papers we get at. the office, and if all the football writers in Canada were lo vote on one thing which has become clear this early in the sea- son, it would be that Toronto Argonauts and Calgary Stampcdcrs will meet in the Grey Cup extravaganza in Vancouver Sunday Nov. 28. .However, outside of Toronto and Calgary, they would like to see it changed lo Cocky Cup. The Stamps and Argos are riding high, the Stamps, it might be said, a nolch higher as they have had only one close call in four games while the Argos have hart a pair of loughics they had lo survive. With only a quarter of the season gone, no one can say honestly that the nod should go to any one club in either division. At present the Slampcdcrs are playing a schedule similar to that of the National Football League, one game a week. The rest of the clubs are looking at only three and four days rest between encounters. Time will tell (he schedule calchns up with the Stampcdcrs and Argos (he picture could be al- together different. That's as cautious as I ever been in my life. It was iiilcrcslins lo note, when the information was finally made available, that Lelhbrtdge's Barbara Home led all bul one Alberta golfer at the Canadian women's championship at the coast last weekend. Miss Home, Ihc best gal golfer in Lelhbridge the last Ilircc years, had rounds of 80, 79, 76, and 81 for a 310 total. Only Belly Cole of Edmonton was better at 309. Keep an eye on our Barbara.

Ferguson Jenkins, the Chatham, Onl., native, reached 20 victories for the fifth succes- sive season in the opener of (he donbleheader with Johnny Calli- son slugging a three-run homer for the Cubs. Jenkins was nicked for two runs in the first inning, but allowed Houslon only six hits after that, reaching 20 victories earlier llian lie ever has before. No pitcher has strung five straight 20-win sea sons since Warren Spahn did it from 1956-60. Tn the second game, J. C. Martin delivered a two-run dou- ble in the eighth inning to move Chicago lo ils sweep. Billy Williams had a two-run homer for Chicago in the night- cap and CalLLson started the Cubs' winning rally with a walk. He raced lo third on Cleo James' hit and then both run- ners scored on Martin's double. ALLEN PACES DODGEMS Richie Allen cracked Lhrec liits, including a three run homer as Ihc Dodgers ripped the Phillies and chopped a game off San Francisco's West Division lead. Allen's towering iOO-foot homer got the Dodgers started and he drove in another run in LA's four-run eighlh. Deron Johnson hit his IStii homer for the Phillies. The victory and Montreal's triumph over San Francisco trimmed Angeles' West Di- vision deficit to 6'i games. 13 i 1 I .Stoneman's four-hitler beat the Giants with home rims by Jim Fairey and Ron Fairly supplying the Expo offence. San Diego snapped an eighth- inning tie on Ollie Brown's two- run double and held on to edge the Mets with reliever At Sev- erlson snuffing out a ninth-in- ning New York rally. Hank Aaron hit his 33rd home run and Ihe 025th of his career but the Braves had to struggle 12 innings lo edge the Cardinals. Meanwhile Oakland Athletics lose once in a while, but hardly ever -when Vida Blue pitches. It was one of those once-in-a- blue-moon limes Friday night. "The game is history, there'll be lots said the star southpaw after losing only his fifth game of the a M heart-breaker to Boston Ret Sox.
