On the other hand the Labor Club tagged winning pitcher George S a nt o n i and Darryl LeaviIt on four occasions. Timely hits were a big fac- tor in the game.

(CP) Andy Bathgale, veteran of more than 15 years in the National Hockey League, said Thursday he is quitting professional hockey and hopes to become a player-coach in Switzerland.

SAFETY GLASS STORE FRONTS RESIDENTIAL REPLACEMENTS LETHBRIDGE Corner ith 4th Slrett S. Ottawa, with four Is tied with Montreal Aloueltes and Hamilton Tiger-Cats behind league-leading Toronto Argo- nauts, with eight. Saskolclie- wan's Tour points are good for a tie in the Western Conference with Winnipeg Blue Bombers and British Columbia Lions, be- hind Calgary Stampeders' who have 10 points. With the guessing for a throw- ing game, Ottawa has the edge in a healtlry quarterback, Gary Wood. But Saskatchewan signal- caller Ron Lancaster, suffering bruised ribs, is expected to work hard to get back in the form which won horn the 1970 CFL most outstanding player award. He has admitted his per. romance this season has not been to his liking. McQUARTERS BACK Saskatchewan ranks will be strengthened by all-star tackle Ed McQuarters, back for his first game this season since los- ing an eye in a home wira-kshop accident this spring. McQuarters1 injury was the first in a series which has de- pleted the Roughriders' lineups this season, leaving coach Dave Skrien to rely at times on some untried rookies. Still out are defensive hall- back Henry Dorsch with a knee injury and end Ken Frith, out for the season wilh a broken. neck vertebra. Ottawa coach Jack Gotta has had injury problems too, but Al Marcelin Is expected back to- night at halfback after recover- ing from a twisted knee and hand injuries. Fiillback Dennis Duncan is unlikely to see much action be- cause of a partial shoulder sep- aration suffered last week against Hamilton. In Duncan's spot probably will be newcomer Greg Thompson, a Canadian who has seen little action this season. Lancaster is expected to go heavily for halfback Bobby Thompson and possibly end Nolan Bailey as favored receiv- ers, bul fullback George Reed also will be out for handoffs, to regain his WFC role as top rusher. He missed most of the 1970 season with a leg injury. The weather forecast calls for temperatures in the mid-505 and partly cloudy skies for the ?ame, to be televised at 7 p.m. MST on the CTV national net- work. Meanwhile halfback Moses Denson is a doubtful starter tor next Tuesday's rematch Montreal Alouettes and Hamilton Tiger-Cats. Denson, the Als' leading rusher last season, suffered a ladly-sprained ankle and pulled .endons in the Als' 1Z-8 win over Hamilton in Eastern Football 'onference play Wednesday night. Halfback Jim Foley, guard Wally Highsmith and quarter- jack Sonny Wade also suffered njuries in Wednesday's game. Wade pulled a hamstring mus- cle, Foley suffered bruised ribs and Highsmith hurt his wrist. The Als announced lhat Tony a one-time member of Angeles Rams of the Na- .ional Football League and a 'ormer Winnipeg Blue Bamber, lad been signed to a five-day trial at defensive end.

The Cost of Living Council ruled that professional athletes who had not entered into new contracts prior to the Aug. 15 freeze cannot negotiate con- track during the 90-day period calling for salary increases to cover their services during tlie freeze, The council, Nixon's policy- making board, apparently gave the answer to many questions but failed to reply to others, such as the rulings' application to bonuses and incentives and to long-term contracts. Clarence Campbell, National Hockey League president, said the council's decision was ex- pected but "the question re- mains, will the wage freeze be lifted after 90 days or will it be All NHL players mast sign contracts before attending train- ing camps which open during the second week of September. WILL NEGOTIATE Campbell said players of U.S.-based teams will negotiate raises, lo become effective when the freeze is lifted. "We decided our teams should proceed as usual with negotia- tions for new contracts against Lhe possibility of the wage freeze being lifted after 90 days." "But it is my personal assess- ment that the wage freeze will be continued beyond 90 he said, adding that players on Canadian teams will be allowed immediate raises. Campbell, in Toronto for in- ductions to Hockey's Hall of Fame, also said US. arenas which had announced increases in ticket prices will be allowed to charge the inflated rate. Pete Retzlaff, general man- ager of Philadelphia Eagles of the National Football League, said: "We haven't yet seen any offi- cial statements on the freeze as it applies to professional foot- ball, but we assume that we can I time as (he wage and price con- continue to negotiate with play- trols are removed." ers who are unsigned, and that But, he said: each contract we arrive at will contain a paragraph referring to Ibe executive order and ac- knowledge that the contract will not become effective until such Scallen gets greeting from awaiting bailiff VANCOUVER (CP) Van- couver Canucks' director Tom Scallen, in town Thursday lo board'with regard to club mat- New athletic group formed Art Campbell informed the Lclhbridge Herald that a new athletic association has been rained in Lethbridge.

Tied with one-under-par IVs after the second round Thurs- day were Adam Brown of Ham- ilton, Mike Defalco of Lucerne, Quc., and Rob Laing of Prince George, B.C. Only one stroke behind was 10-year-old Scott Keenlyside of Langlcy, B.C. with even-par rounds of 71. The first-round co-leader, MUte McLaren, 16, of Wood- bridge, Ont., fell into a third- place tie with Bruce Heuchan, 17, of Aylmer East, Quc. Mc- Laren, who carded a fint-rtumd 69, brought in a 75 Thursday, while Heuchan had 71 and 73 for tion, plans to combine sports with scholastic abilities. "Our main purpose is to run amateur sports like it should be. We want clubs that will be under strict rules, therefore, discouraging unruly conduct. In this way, things like scholastic ability and attitudes will over- ride skills." Hockey will be the first sport the association will challenge hoping to get things set for this season.

Jacques discuss the operation of the Na- Hoclicy League team, got more than just the talking. Late for the meeting, he walked oft the elevator and into the arms of bailiff Clifford Ven- ablcs. who promptly served him with a writ claiming damages against him and other directors of the club. Uncle Ben's Tartan Breweries Ltd.. owned by Ben Ginter of Prince George, B.C., claims damages for fraud or neglig- ence as a result of a transfer of S3 million from Northwest Sports Enterprises Ltd., which ou'ns the Canucks, to its parent company, Medicor of Minneapo- lis. The writ, filed Aug. 17, said a Northwest Sports prospectus did not make a full disclosure of Northwest's financial situation at the time of a public share of- fering. The brewer said it pur- chased units of Northwest capital stock last year for on the basis of the pros- pectus. Lyman Walters, another director, was more fortunate in dcdging the just hap- pened to be cut of the room making a phone call when the bailiff arrived at the meeting. Walters is vice-president of JUedieor while Scallen is presi- dent. DISCUSS OPERATION'S Scallen said the meeting ilself dealt only regular operat- ing matters of the Canucks and their Rochester farm team. He said he was "pleased with the positive and helpful attitude displayed by all members of the ters." Present at the meeting was Vancouver Centre MLA Herb Capozzi, whose family firm lent Medicor million to reclaim its majority shares in Northwest "We dcn't know whether In- centives 2nd bonuses would be considered valid or invalid For these and other things we'll just have to wait and find out."
