Som don pilling A BIT OF EVERYTHING And have you figured out your World Series opponents yet? There's nothing much, really, to get excited about in any of the four divisions as baseball's main stem heads into the homestretch Baltimore and Oakland have al ready locked up their division titles in the American League and it's only a matter of time before they make it official, but in the National League there is a chance, maybe, that either one or both of the two leaders could be replaced in the drive to the wire, but don't bet next week's grocery bill on it Chi- cago Cubs and it would be okay with me if Leo Duroeher made the scene again and St. Louis Cardinals are chasing Pittsburgh in the eastern divi- sion but both may run out of gas before time runs out of them in the case of Durocher's darlings, a great deal will depend on how many clutch games Canada's Ferguson Jenkins wins in the stretch Los Angeles Dodgers have been chasing their oppo nents up the California coast, the San Francisco Giants, all season but whether they'll eventually catch them may be something else again what would be wrong, just for a change and just for kicks, of a Golden Gate series between the Giants and Charlie Finley's razzle dazzle Oakland Athletics? such a turn of events, however, might be enough to topple the bridge in another earthquake. YOU might be interested to know that Oakland is paying their superb southpaw Vida Blue, who might become the first lefty to win 30 games since Lefty Grove turned the trick in 1931 with a record of 31-4, one dollar bills for his efforts this year he's already indicated that the bargaining next year will begin at the level Oakland manager Dick Williams, incidentally, says his star reminds him of Sandy Koufax with a five-year headstart and when he hears of this comparison, Blue quickly adds, "Funny, I don't look that reminds me of a Myron Cohen joke that I'll tell you someday if you've got a minute. office wit says the reason some people are overweight is because they, at times, go starch -craving mad he also says a lot of people simply can't stand then most people don't have to. A tip of the hat and heartiest congratulations to Reed Spencer, Bill Taylor and the local Lakeside All- Stars for a job well done in the Canadian Little League final in Quebec this week we should all be proud of these youngsters; they brought our town national recognition No, I'm sorry to report, there will be no telecast of Tuesday night's B.C.

Andy Andrews wants everybody to know that the annual fall race meet opens at the Exhibition Grounds Friday, Sept. 17 and will run through for nine days to Sept. 28 Ted Berlando is already saving his money the office wit says the best way to take a great weight off your mind is to discard your halo Rumors still persist that Lethbridgeite Vic Stasiuk, relieved of his duties as Philadelphia Flyer coach, will wind up at the helm of the Vancouver Canucks look for Cassius Clay and Joe Fraiier to get to- gether one of these days to sign for a rematch, likely in Los Angeles in March aside to J.R.
