Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - August 28, 1971, Lethbridge, Alberta Snluiclny, August 58, 1971 THE IfTHBRIDGE HERALD KEY TO CUBS' SUCCESS Al Ferchuk will hove to be sharp this weekend as the Cubs go after the Southern Albera Senior Baseball League Crown. Cubs played their game of the tourney this afternoon. Carty case investigated ATLANTA. Ga, (AP) The aUorney representing three po- licemen accused of beating up Atlanta Braves baseball star Rico Carty said Friday public remarks by lire mayor and the police chief may have made it impossible for tlie officers to get a fair hearing. As a result, attorney Clyde Henley said, lie would welcome a grand jury investigation into the case. Police Chief Herbert Jenkins called the Tuesday night inci- dent "the worst case of miscon- duct of a police officer I've ever seen" and said that he would fire the men if he had the au- thority. Mayor Sam Massell said It apparently was a case of "bla- tant brutality." The officers-C. E. Turner, L. D. Smith and James R. Mc- face the alder- manic police committee next Wednesday charged with mis- conduct. THREE SUSPENDED Jenkins suspended the three last Wednesday night after he and Massell questioned then: about tlie alleged beating of Carty. "It's just a little old street fight as far as I'm the attorney for the policemen said. "If it hadn't been Rico Carty, nothing would have been heard alxmt it." In original police reports of the altercation, Carly and his brother-in-law, Carlos Ramirez, were said to have begun fight- ing with two white men who were driving in another car on an Atlanta street. r-- Killebretv changes his mind about park Cubs forget their problems with Leo Durocher By TIIE ASSOCIATED PRESS Chicago Cubs, who have been fighting themselves for a while, pulled no punches against At- lanta Braves and had them seeing stars. One of the stars the Braves saw was Billy Williams and an- offier was Milt Pappas. Williams drove in all the runs and Pappas pitched a five-hitter as the discordant Cubs decked the Braves 3-0 Friday and got back on the right track for a pennant run. It was a nice change of pace for Chicago, which had lost four of five before Friday during a siege of open dissension against manager Leo Durocher. Before their bounce-back against the Braves, owner Phil Wrigley had admonished hbj players to forget about friction with the 65-year-old Duroeher, whom some had criticized as inept. THREE RAINED OUT While the Cubs were travers- ing a bridge over troubled wa- ters, storms lashed the east and wiped out three National League Angeles at New York, San Francisco at Philadelphia and San Diego at Montreal. In Uie only other National League games played, Pitts- burgh Pirates stopped Houston Astros 7-3 and Cincinnati Reds trimmed St. Louis Cardinals 8-7. Seemingly spurred by Wrig- ley's scolding, Williams and Pappas took matters into their own hands. Billy The Kid deliv- ered a two-run triple in the third inning and slammed his 25th homer in the sixth. Pappas allowed only four singles and .Sonny Jackson's filth-inning double while his mates helped with a sparkling defence, includ- ing two double plays. The victory kept Chicago on the scent of the East Division- leading Pirates, six games be- hind in second place. Two home runs in a game can quickly change a hatter's opin- ion of a park. It did it to Har- mon Kilebrew Friday Eight. The Killer, the lOlli-leadlng home-run hitler in baseball his- tory, had said recently: "I al- ways had trouble seeing in Ihat referring to Cleveland's Municipal Stadium, where lie had hit only 16 of his 533 career homers. "And the have always had good pitching through the years." Friday, hillebrew apparently had no trouble seeing the ball no trouble with Ihc Indi- ans' pitching. He slammed his rdilh and 5C5lh homers snd drove in five runs, leading tho Twins to an IM victory. "This is c good park to hit in, especially at he said after the game. In other American League games, Detroit Tigers downed Chicago While Sox 4-2; Kansas City Royals Wanked New York Yankees 4-0; Oakland Athletics beat Washington Senators G-2; California Angels edged Boston Red Sox 1-0, and Milwaukee at Miners grab opener The Lethbridge Junior Min- ers kept manager Jack Kerr's prediction true so far, as they dumped the Pincher Creek Chi- nooks 11-7 in the Southern Al- berLa Senior Baseball League championship opener Friday night. Kerr has predicted Uie Min- ers would reach the finals and most likely win the coveted championship cup. TJie Miners blasted the Chi- noolts with 14 hits while Rod Taylor limited them to three. Taylor was also credited for 14 strikeouts. A LOT DEPENDS ON KING Dennis King has a lot of the Cubs hopes riding on his shoulders this weekend as they seek to add the Southern Alberta Senior Baseball League title to their laurels. Tim Negrello led Uie Miners up at the plate stroking a- triple, a double and a single off los- ing pitcher Ken McKenzie, Doug Yorgason chipped in with a triple and two singles. Alvin Simpson managed a double and two singles for the Chinooks. 'Hie three-day double knock- out affair resumed at (his morning when the Taber-En- chant Combines took on Milk Hiver. Winner of this contest met the Cubs at one The losers of the first t w o games will then meet at five. BigTaste TRADITION Rye Whisky Schonlcy made it full-bodied and mellow. Yel smooth.

Killebrew's homers were only his 17Lh and llllh of the season, his second-lowest output since old Washington Senators in 1959. A sprained toe suffered two months ago has slowed his pro- duction. His first homer went deep Into he became a regular with the the left-field stands in the fifth MORE DUCKS, more antelope and less big-horn sheep are some of the pre-hunting season an- nouncements by the fish and wildlife division of the Alberta government. The division reports a bumper waterfowl year, with duck populations as high as the record years in the mid 1950s, with the exception of the extreme south. Duck hunters should note that in this year's hunt- ing regulations summary, waterfowl and upland game bird zones are combined on the same map. An antelope season has been declared for the week of Oct. 25-30. A total of permits will be issued, 200 more than last year, split evenly between Zones A, B, C, and F in the antelope range. An increase in Alberta's antelope population, as evidenced by the results oi a survey made in July by provincial government biologists, plus consultation with wildlife officials in Saskatchewan and Montana, are the reasons for the more liberal permit allow- ance this year. Saskatchewan and Montana share the herd of antelope which moves through Alberta, and this year will issue and permits respectively. This year, for the first time, Saskatchewan and Alberta will have concurrent seasons. The last date on which antelope permit applica- tions will be accepted will be Oct. 2, 1971 Hunters who are successful in bagging a grizzly bear, big-horn sheep, caribou or cougar this year are required to register the kills witli the fish and wild- life division. The information gained hy this compul- sory registration such as the numbers of animals taken, plus age and sex data, will enable wildlife management personnel to better regulate the hunt- ing of these species in tlie future. In connection with this survey, successful sheep hunters will be asked to provide additional informa- tion, such as their opinion as to what constitutes a trophy head, and whether or not they feel that a per- mit system (similar to antelope) should be instituted. The non trophy sheep hunting season has been reduced this year. This reduction, plus the compul- sory registration of kills, are management tools de- signed to ensure continuing sheep populations in Al- berta's alpine regions. Jacket crests identifying Uie wearer as a "success- ful mule deer hunter" will be given again this year to hunters who submit the cleaned lower jaw of their mule deer to any fish and wildlife office. These jaws provide a wealth of information to provincial biolo- gists, information they could get in no other way. Other mule deer studies are underway in the province, with fish and wildlife personnel trying to determine why the numbers of these popular game animals vary so greatly in areas with similar food supplies and protective cover. There will be no special elk season on the Ra-ha Tinda ranch this year. Instead, a trapping and tag- ging program will be carried out in an attempt to assess the condition of the herd, and to plot its move- ments. To date, investigations by tlie Canadian Wildlife Service have not shown wide-spread bird kills asso- ciated with the current Lannate spray operation for army worm control. Richard W. Fyfe, pesticide biologist for the Cana- dian Wildlife Service, and the man who headed up the DDT study on pheasants, reports that during the past 10 days investigations have been made in Al- berta by biologists and technicians of the Canadian Wildlife Service in tlie spray area. These investiga- tions have included field observations of birds and other wildlife in rape fields prior to, during and fol- lowing spray operations. The observations were immediately followed by investigations for either sick or dead birds or animals in the field following the spray operation. None were found. Investigations of several persistent and wide- spread rumors of large scale bird die offs were also made. However, the Canadian Wildlife Service has not been able to substantiate any of these reports. Similar field investigations have been carried out in Saskatchewan by biologists of the department of natural resources. "We huve been advised that their findings parallel our and additional field obser- vations on birds actually in the field at the time of spraying further indicated that these birds suffered no obvious ill effects from the spray Mr. Fyfe added. Observations of healthy dragon-flys, butterflys, grasshoppers, frogs and small birds in the field fol- lowing spraying suggests Lannate to be one of the more specific pesticides. If this chemical breaks down as quickly as re- ported, the short and long term environmental effects of this program should be minimal, in sharp con- trast to the long term residual effects of such organ- ochlorines as Dieldrin, Endrin or DDT which were formerly used in insect control and which can result in serious residue problems not only in wildlife but in our forage crops, oil seed and dairy products in general. inning and scored Hod Carevc, who had walked with two out, slid Tony Oliva, who had sin- gled. It was hit off loser Steve Dunning, B-12, and gave the Twins a 4-3 lead. Killebrcw's second homer sailed over the centre-field fence in the seventh and drove in Carew, who had opened the liming with n single, knocking out Dunning. Reliever Mike Paul was the victim of the homer. Cleveland had taken a 3-0 lead in the first inning off Bert Bly- leven, 11-15, en singles by Vada Pinson and Ted Uhiaender, a double by Roy Foster and a twiwun single by Chris Cham- bliss. Chambliss went to second on a passed ball and tried to score on John Low enstein's sin- gle to left. But. he was tlirown out by Cesar Tovar's peg to Phil Roof. COLEMAN STINGY Detroit's Joe Colcman hurled a five-hitter for his 14Ui victory in healing Chicago rookie Rich Hinton, who was making his first major league start. A three-run third inning.fea- turing RBI singles by Tony Tay- lor and Al Kalme, won it for the Tigers. Willie Horton, Detroit's leader in runs batted in with 71, was hit in the left eye by a Hin- ton pitch in the third and taken to a hospital. Preliminary X- rays indicated no fracture. by GARY KIRK KIRK'S TIRE SALES LTD. Who is tha highest paid I 1 olhlete in ihe world today?
