VOUNGTOMWAS RIGHT OFF'IS GAME TOOAVr THERE'S TOO MANY YOUNG LASSES GETTIN1 CAYS WHO CAN'T ADEQUATELY -SUPPORT A HUSBANb SURPRISED But Is Still Angry McLaiii Apologizes DETROIT (AP) Denny McLain entered the fourth day of his latest suspension today having apologized Saturday to one of his ice water victims but still angered at the action taken by general manager Camp- bell of Detroit Tigers. "I'm sorry. It was a club- house gag and it took me seven minutes to set you McLain told Watson Spoelstra, Detroit News baseball writer who re- ceived a bucketful of ice water dumped on him by McLain be- fore Friday night's 6-2 loss to Oakland Athletics. Jim Hawkins, baseball writer of the Detroit Free Press, also was a victim of the damp hum- or and subsequently Campbell suspended the cocky pitcher for 'an indefinite period not to ex- ceed 30 days." It was his second suspension in five months. Campbell still is upset over the whole situation, including a statement McLain made to a re- porter afterwards saying that Campbell never would have sus- pended him if the Tigers were still in the pennant race. "Do you think Campbell would have suspended me if we were three games McLain asked. "Hell, ho! But, what are we, about 17 games out To that Campbell growled later: "If we were three games out he wouldn't be making a fool of himself as he did." In his apology to Spoelstra, who is in his late 50s, McLain said: "I knew I shouldn't do this to you. For seven years you haven't written anything derog- atory about me or my family. You've been good to me. But once I started to set you up, I couldn't stop. You know how I like to clown around." Hawkins also spoke with Mc- Lain on the phone but he said Denny just explained it was a joke but didn't actually apolo- gize. To Hawkins he continued crit- icism of Campbell which he had made Friday night when he blasted him for "never standing behind his players." McLain added that "I actually got down on my hands and knees and begged him to trade To the trade question Camp- bell said, "I have no comment." His record this season is 3-5 in 15 starts with a 4.65 earned run average. For the Argos it was a bat end to a bad western tour. A win in the west would have bro- ken their second-place tie with Hamilton Tiger-Cats in the Eastern Conference but thej lost 28-22 against Winnipeg Wednesday. Sunday, Saskatchewan led the Argos 14-7 after the half and the teams were tied 14-14 after the third quarter. Then Saskatche warn, capitalizing on some breaks, exploded in the final quarter. Speedy halfback Bcbbj Thompson scored two spectacu- lar touchdowns in the final 15 minutes, one on a 94-yard pass and run play and the other on a 51-yaord emt sweep. MAKES BIG CATCH Gordon Harwell made a leap- ing end-zone catch in the firsl quarter after Toronto defensive halfback Chip Bsnrett tipped the ball. Nolan Bailey caught a Lan- caster pass for a touchdown and linebacker Don Seaman scooped up a fumble for another. Five converts were added by Jack Abendsehan anid Al Fard kicked a single. Don Jonas, who called most of the game for Toronto, threw to Jim Thorpe for the Argos' only touchdown and boated two fleW goals and a convert while Dave Mann added a single on a boom- ing 77-yard punt. Toronto, with defensive stal- wart Dick Thornton and flankei Bobby Taylor sidelined with in- juries suffered in Winnipeg, rolled up 271 yards through the air compared with Saskatche- wan's 234. However, they gave a big edge in rushing, 99 yards to Roughriders' 198. George Reed, sffll recovering from a fcnee injury, carried 2; times for 88 yards for Saskat- chewan Keys said Heed's knee suffered another setback in the game and the fullback may nol be used against Winnipeg. Jonas was replaced at times by Tom Wilkinson. Toronto's best pass catchers were M e Profit, who caught six for 110 yards and Thorpe, who got four for 103. Saskatchewan's Thompsoi caught three for 120 yards anc gained 69-yards rushing. WON'T BE BACK PRAGUE (ZAP) -Jaroslav Jirik former star forward on the Czechoslovak national hockey team, will not return to St. Louis Blues of the National Hockey League, the Czechoslo- vak news agency CTK reported today. Russians Favored In Today's Action Americans Well Ahead In Medals Race TURIN, Italy (CP) The So- viet Union is expected to win the two gold medals at. stake today in the World University Games. But even with two more, the Russians would still lag far behind the United States in golds. The Soviet team has won six in all in previous events while the powerful American team has piled up 19 wins, mostly in the swimming events. Canada has one bronze. In the waterpolo tournament ending today the Soviet team is the favorite with the guest team, Italy, as its strongest op- ponent. Another gold for the Soviets is expected to come from the men's team foil competition, in which the Soviet Union is a fi- EAGLES BOWLING Begins Wednesday, Sept. 2 Capri Bowl 9 p.m. MIXED LEAGUES Anyone intereited contact Kathy Lunweg or Evelyn Groves nalist alongside Hungary, Italy and Poland. The U.S., which dominated the three first days of competi- tion, is likely to wait until the track and field races, wliich start Wednesday, to resume its collection of .golds. Sunday's scene again was in- truded by politics as Algeria refused to play Israel in a bas- ketball game. Albania had walked out before the same team two days before. The Algerians also indicated they would not compete against Portugal Tuesday in the men's basketball for political reasons. Militant Arabs have criticized the Portuguese government as one of right-wing repression and colonialism. Tho Algerians and Albanians teams were considered losers by default with the score of 2-0 as indicated by the rules of the Games, But they were not pen- alized, i In action Sunday, Agnes Si- monffy of Hungary won the only gold medal at stake in the women's individual'foil after a playoff with three other compet- itors. t Miss Simonffy, who gave her country its first gold medal so fa', totalled three victories. Martha Stahl of Romania, also with three victories placed second and Marina Skakolina of the Soviet Union, finished third. In basketball play, Canada went down 76-61 at the hands of Turkey. It was the only action for the Canadians at the Games Sunday. The loss was the second for University of British Columbia Thunderbirds. John Thorsen, Prince George, B.C., paced the Thunderbirds with 12 points and Bob Molinski, North Vancouver, added 10. In final-round action the U.S. beat Cuba 90-80 and in semi-fi- nal play Italy beat Brazil 72-60. In Saturday's events, Cana- dian swimmers wound up their events with a flurry of points and University of Montreal Car- abins men's volleyball team beat India. The women's volleyball team, however, had too much to han- dle as they fell before the fa- vored Japanese team in three- straight games. Led by the female side of the team, the Canadian swimmers turned in an excellent showing in the Games. They scored points in 15 of the 22 events. Diver Kathy Hollo of Saska- toon, Sask., recorded a fifth- place finish in the three-metre diving and Shirley Cazalet of Vancouver, finished with a sev- enth in the 100-metre back- stroke. Sylvia Dockerill, also of Van- couver missed a medal by three seconds in the 200-metre individ- ual medley event.

(AP) It's been a long time between victo- ries for Bobby Nichols. It's been a long tune between putters too. Using tlie same putter he used to take the 1964 Profes- sional Golfers' Association tour- nament, Nichols dropped in a 10-footer on the 18th hole Sun- day for a birdie for the first prize in golf's richest tour- nament, the Dow Jones Open. That gave, him a 69 for the day and a 276 for the tourna- Singers Triumph The 1970 Lakeside Golf League came to a close Sunday at Henderson Lake and once again Singers are league cham- pions.

"I just hadn't been putting said the 34-year-old Ni- chols, whose last individual vic- tory on the tour came in 1966. "I figured I might as well try the old putter. I've taken it apart and put it together a dozen times and it looks like a dog chewed on it. But I guess it still works." GOT BIG MONEY Harris took home a cheque for more than the win- ner makes in most tour tourna- ments. Vancouver's Wayne Vollmer was the lone Canadian in the money. He finished at 288 with a 68 Sunday and earned Toronto's George K n u d s o n and Billy Wright Jr. of Edmon- ton failed to surviva the cut after 36 holes Friday. Harris and Nichols had started the day tied at 209, two strokes ahead of John Miller and Larry Hinson but with at least nine other players, includ- ing pre-tournament favorite Jack Nicklaus, within reach of the title. As it turned out, Dan Sikes, who just made the cut Friday with an even par 144, had a 87 Saturday and a 68 Sunday. Sikes finished third with a followed by Hinson at 280, Charles Coody at 281, and Miller, Bruce Devlin, Orville Moody and Homero Blancas at 282.
