In a column by Citizen sports editor Jack Koffman, O'Quinn says that "if they put me up against the wall, I'll tell some stories that will be nothing short of sensational." Koffman said his is 'O'Quinn's answer to Loeb's talk of going a court to decide if O'Quinn, while winding up his term in Ot- awa late in 1970, "stole" half- Moses Benson from Rid- ers and placed him on Mon- treal's negotiation list. O'Quinn is quoted as annoyed secause of what he regards as character assassination. "H e r e' s something people should know. The Ottawa club [coaching staff) asked me to ;ake someone off the (negotia- tion) list in order to make room For another player they had in mind. That's just what I did."

The bouncy, 50-year-old um- pire, first black man ever to call balls and strikes In the major leagues, bowed out Thursday after five turbulent seasons. His retirement announcement came several hours before Cin- cinnati Reds' Johnny Bench, St. Louis Cardinals' Bob Gibson TT WAS MY GOOD FORTUNE to take a day and a half off the other weekend and spend the avail- able daylight hours in pursuit of pheasants and part- ridge. There were a couple of inches of fresh snow on the ground in the east country. The easterly breeze was sharp and it didn't take long for the ears to tingle if you kept them uncovered for long. But, the birds were everywhere, especially the partridge. In some places the pheasants were even roosting in the trees. Shooting was best when there was a drizzle of snow, the wind cutting and visibility restricted to a few hundred yards. Because of the intermittent snowfalls, tracks and droppings near cover almost always meant birds were at hand. The hens and roosters were segregated in most places. In most instances it was coveys of roost- ers that flushed as many as seven from one brush cover in one instance. Partridge covers were large, possibly the largest we have ever seen. As-many as 25 to 30 in some flocks. Most coveys were sitting in harley stubble just inside the fence lines along the side roads. And, ever so often, they acted more like sharp tailed grouse Hush, swing put into the field and then circle back to the fence line a few hundred yards up ahead. So, we would concentrate on the spot where they landed, and completely forget the possibility there may be two or three more coveys in between and tliis happened on several occasions. In any event, the point is simply tin's: gel your John longs on. Saturday is the final day for upland game birds and they are there. Mind you, it takes a bit of weathering to get with it. THE LETHBRIDGE TRAP CLUB is holding its final registered monthly shoot for the year on Sunday. It may be blustery and cold, but the shoot is on never- theless. There are three events.

In last month's event Class A, went to Otto Krumes with 99 out of 100; Class B, went to Ron Wobick, with 91 out of 100 and Class C, went to Boris Snyder with 79 out of 100. In handicap, long yardage, Otto Krumes took 85 out of 100 and Darlene Woo took 89 out of 100 in short yardage. In doubles Otto Krumes went 45 out of 50. Overall high went to Otto Krumes 229 out of 250 and ladies high went to Darlene Woo 175 out of 200. Message to anglers: Tyrrell's Lake is hot. But, there have now been a total of five vehicles under water during the past week. Ice measures from three to six inches thick. No way for a vehicle on the ice. And, even fishermen on foot should take care. Seven leading CORAL SPRINGS, Fla. (CP- AP) Seven players, including Winnipeg's Wilt Homenulk, shared the first-round lead Thursday in the Coral Springs open golf tournament. Homenuik, Bob Lunn, Mike Hill, George Johnson, Butch Baird, Mac McLendon and Brian Allin, the latter a Viet- nam war veteran playing in his second professional tournament, fired four-under par 67s to hold a one-stroke lead over a group of 11 others. Homenuik had steady nines of 33-34 to top a four-man Cana- dian contingent in the field on the par-71 Springs Country Club layout. Bill Wright Jr. of Edmonton had nines of 31-39 and his 70 had him among the 89 who were at par or better after 18 holes. Gary Bowerman of Toronto had two 37s for a 74, while Ben Kern of Toronto was well off the pace at 76 with a front rune of 39. Among those at 68 were Tommy Aaron, the 1969 Cana- dian Open winner, Lee Trevino, Gardner Dickinson, Homero Blancas and Gay Brewer. Dave Hill and 52-year-old Tommy Bolt topped another big bunch at 69. But Arnold Palmer found all the trouble he could handle. The 41-year-old master, still seeking his first individual title of tie year, had a 72. He three-putted two greens and had a three-over par six on the loth. and San Francisco Giants' Wil- lie Mays received top honors at lascbnll's inaugural national awards banquet in a swank Beverly Hills hotel. Bench, the major league slug- ging king last season, was lamed player of the year. Gib- son, a 23-game winner, captured 1970 pitching laurels. Mays, the Giants' 39-year-old superstar, was selected as the player who jest typifies the game on and off the field. Other award winners included hird baseman Brooks Robinson of world champion Baltimore Moles, named defensive player of the year, Pittsburgh Pirates' }anny Murtaugh, named mana- ger Of the year, and Orioles' ront office chief Harry Dalton, executive of the year. [1IT RETIREMENT AGE Ashford, who reached the nor- mal retirement age of 55 for American League umpires a year ago, announced he was stepping out "with a great deal of reluctance" after 20 years on he first 15 of them in he minors. Joe Cronin, American League who brought Ashford up from the Pacific Coast League in 1966, and who invited lum back last year, denied that pressure had been put on the ;bullient showman to retire. Commissioner Bowie Kuhn hinted that he would offer Ash- ford a job in his office. Ashford, who worked the World Series for the first time this year, insisted he merely 'anted to "depart on top." "Trying to top the thrill- ing events of the 1970 World Se- ries would be superfluous and he said. "He wasn't pushed 2ronin said. "He certainly has been a credit to baseball and contributed greatly to it. "You can't give him (Cronin) enough he said. "In every league I worked in, the president has been on the spot and I've had to get him working." FANS LIKED HIM Ashford did his job with a Flourish, and Ms antics behind the plate and on the bases de- lighted the fans. "I've toned down on that stuff le last two he said. "I think I was taking a litUe away from the players." He said he was disappointed at first that there were no other black umpires in the majors. "Now I'm very happy, be- cause we have about half a dozen black umpires on the way up." Ashford will receive a pension of only a year for his i v e -y e a r stint in the big leagues. He intends to stay ac- tive, he hopes within baseball. Trading was at a standstill Thursday as club officials wound up an informal joint meeting and then broke up for .eague session. The meetings ivere to wind up today after an- other joint session. In the lone player deal of the day, New York Yankees sent outfielder Bill Robinson from their Syracuse club in the Inter- national League to Chicago White Sox' Tucson, Pacific [Joast League farm in exchange for pitcher Barry Moore.
