Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - August 30, 1974, Lethbridge, Alberta Friday, August 30, W4-TH6 LETHBRIOGE HERALD-13 Players, owners remain at long distance Short time left to settle things The ASSOCIATED PRESS The National Football League contract dispute is nearly two months old, the start of the regular season is a little more than two weeks away, and some very key issues are far from settled. ANDY CAPP Foremost is the Rozelle rule: When a player plays out his option to become a free agent and signs with another club, if the two teams cannot agree on compensation, the decision is up to Com- missioner Pete Rozelle. John Thompson, executive director of the NFL manage- ment council, reiterated the owners' opposition to elimina- tion of the Rozelle rule at a press conference Thursday. "The Rozelle rule is very closely tied to our system and we are asking the players to accept our said Thompson. "We will modify it, but we will not eliminate it." The players, however, say this inhibits their freedom to negotiate, and that clubs are [WOT A THOUGHT I IN YOUR'E FOE AC (JAVE STUCK'5KE ON MY OWN, WEEK OUT, 830 POOR LITTLE DEVIL- A I'MATERRISLE V HYPOCRITE -1 ONL.f BECAUSE! PREFER Dodgers add half game to their lead Curtis close, but that was it THE ASSOCIATED PRESS "I had a ball game to win, not a no-hitter to said John Curtis. "The way the season's been going for me, you can't be too selective of your victories." The St. Louis Cardinals' 26- year-old left-hander came within one purpose pitch" he called pitching the third no-hitter this year and the first in the National League. But that one pitch rocketed off the bat of San Diego's Fred Kendall in the eighth inning and wrecked not only the no- hitter but the shutout as well. 1 Fortunately, Jim Dwyer and Mike Tyson got a couple of hits when they really counted and gave Curtis an 8- 12 record and the Cards a 3-1 victory over the Padres Thursday night. In other National League baseball games, Los Angeles Dodgers beat Chicago Cubs 3- 1, New York Mets whipped Houston Astros 7-0, San Fran- cisco Giants beat Pittsburgh Pirates 3-2 in 11 innings and Atlanta Braves downed Montreal Expos 7-2 In the American League, Boston Red Sox beat Chicago White Sox 3-2 and Baltimore Orioles defeated Texas Rangers 6-2. Curtis lost a perfect game, no-hitter and shutout al! in the eighth inning. He walked lead-off batter Dave Winfield on a 3-2 pitch, walked Derrel Thomas with one out. then gave up Ken- dall's solid run-scoring single to left that tied the game. The Cards had taken the lead in the seventh on Ted Simmons' 17th home run. "I got behind Winfield 3-0 in a hurry and he's a pretty free said Curtis. "Maybe I was a little too careful and I lost him-but that didn't concern me too much. He hit a homer to beat me the last time I was here "When Kendall got his hit I wasn't too let down. It was a sort of 'purpose pitch' inside. I was trying to make him swing at a bad pitch." In the ninth.

Andy Messersmith and Mike Marshall combined for a three-hitter the Cubs and gave the Dodgers their fifth straight victory to widen their lead in the National League West to 3lxz games over Cin- cinnati. Messersmith held Chicago hitless until rookie Pete LaCock led off the seventh inning with his first major league homer. Tom Seaver of the Mets looked like the Seaver of old, but admitted he'll probably never pitch like the Seaver of old "I accept the fact that I won't be able to throw as hard as I once did. "The times that I will throw a good fastball are fewer and farther he said after hurling a five-hit shutout by concentrating on breaking pitches and changeups. The Mets snapped Dave Roberts' 26-inning scoreless streak in the first inning when Bob Harrelson doubled and came around on Felix Millan's bunt single and a sacrifice fly by Ted Martinez They added three more runs in the third, then scored their final three in the sixth off reliever Jim York. Dave Kingman drove in two San Francisco runs with a fourth-inning homer and an llth-inning single that beat the Pirates. Gary Matthews opened the llth with an infield single and was bunted to second. Dave Gal reporter kicked out of press box VICTORIA (CP) A female sports reporter from Nova Scotia who was barred for a day from the all male press box at the Cana- dian men's Softball championships was to get an official apology from the city Thursday. Kathleen Walling of Halifax said she was told Sunday, when she arrived with her hus- band Alex to help him file stories to Halifax radio station CHNW, that women weren't allowed in Royal Athletic Park press box. Mrs. Walling left the box, spent the next two softball games outside, then complained to Kathleen Ruff, B.C. director of human rights. After negotiations it was agreed she could return. Mrs Walling has spent the last three days there helping her husband. Giusti then walked Chris Speier intentionally before Kingman singled to left. Willie Stargell sent the game into extra innings with his 21st homer, a ninth-inning shot. Mike Lum hit a solo home run in the second inning and Ralph Garr hit a three-run shot in the third to lead the Braves past Montreal. High school cage star turns pro NEW YORK (AP) Moses Malone and Utah Stars of the American Basketball Associ- ation ended their melodramatic saga Thursday with the 19-year-old high school sensation agreeing to terms on a contract esti- mated at more than million. The announcement, made at simultaneous news conferences in New York and Salt Lake City, ended days of speculation on whether the 6- foot-11 Malone would play for the Stars or attend the Univer- sity of Maryland on a basket- ball scholarship. Actually, Malone, one of the few players ever to jump directly from high school into the pros, signed with the Stars Wednesday night. The Stars, however, did not sign the con- tract until Thursday. As late as Wednesday after- noon, the youngster had said it still was uncertain whether he would turn pro or become a collegian at Maryland, with whom he had signed a grant- in-aid in June wary of signing free agents because they do not know what Rozelle will make them give up as compensation. They want the Rozelle rule eliminated, and this has been one of their key demands. OFFER REJECTED Thompson, meanwhile, call- ed the offer which the NFL submitted to the players Tuesday, and which was re- jected by the NFL Players' Association, "very close to a bottom-line offer." "We think it was a good of- the biggest offer ever made to players by a management in pro sports. But we are not going to say, 'This is it, take it or leave it.'" That offer included modi- fication, but not elimination, of the Rozelle rule. Besides that disagreement, Thompson said the length of the contract has become another major stumbling block. "We need a four-year con- said Thompson. "But the players want one or two years. "We need four years for two reasons: First, the fans, owners and players need to have four years of labor peace-second, the loss of million the owners have suf- fered this preseason has to be taken care of. "There will be no winners whenever this is he added. That apparently includes the NFL Players' Association. More than a few veterans have expressed disappoint- ment at the way their union has handled the dispute, par- ticularly the so-called cooling- off period originally called Aug. 14 and extended earlier this week The cooling-off period meant the striking veterans abandoned picket lines and reported to training camps while negotiations continued. "The flame is said wide receiver Randy Vataha of New England Patriots. "The mood of our team is passive. The guys don't like what has happened, but there isn't much we could do about it." "They (the owners) can do anything they want with us now, and we won't have much to say about said New England's Len St. Jean. Eddie Bell of New York Jets called the strike a waste "If I had to do it all over again, I wouldn't go through with it. It's all wasted don't even have a contract." Norm Snead of New York Giants criticized the union's tactics. "A strike is a last one weapon unions have that can strangle management. Instead, we used the strike as a bargaining tool. We went in and started talking strike right away. The owners accepted it and prepared for it."

Bench gives boost Johnny Bench made a 22-year Cincinnati fan very happy Thursday. Bench, the young girls' hero, brightened the spirits of Pam Cable, paralyzed since a tumor was removed from her spine at age 15. Bench a Prince Charming CINCINNATI (AP) A kiss from Johnny Bench and his promise to hit more home runs has helped buoy the spirits of a 22-year-old Ohio girl struggling against a grim enemy "Johnny brought her out of it. She had given up hope." said the mother of paralyzed Pam Cable, a pen pal of the Cincinnati Reds catcher for two years. Pam, paralysed since age 15 when a tumor was removed from her spinal cord, met Bench for the first time two weeks ago at Riverfront Sta- dium Mrs. Cable knew of her daughter's fondness for the Reds' slugger. "She wanted to see him. She was dying. We arranged it said Mrs. Cable. "It was a surprise for Pam said. "Johnny's been my idol since I started listening to all the Reds game." Bench, whose own career was threatened when x-rays disclosed a spot on his lung two years ago, cheered Pam during their meeting. "He told me to start eating and get she recalled in a telephone interview. Before leaving to take the field. Bench kissed her. "She's beer, putting on weight ever since and doing well The doctor says her see- ing Johnny made the difference." said Mrs. Cable The Cables make their home in Newark, near Colum- 130 miles northeast of Cincinnati.
