Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - December 5, 1970, Lethbridge, Alberta Salurdoy, Docflmbnr 5, 1970 THE LETHBRIDGE HERALD FRANDSEN WAS SUCCESSFUL-Larry Frandsen of Medicine Hat, delivering his rock, emerged with a victory over Lloyd Wooley of Calgary in the opening round of the 15th annual Rainbow bonspiel which got under way Friday after- noon at the Lethbridge Curling Club. Action in the three- day event continued all day today and will wind up Sunday afternoon. Favorites win first games No surprises as Rainbow starts Things went pretty well ac- cording to script In the open- ing two draws of the 15th an- nual Lethbridge Rainbow Bonspiel. The three-day event opened at the Lethbridge Curling Club Friday with two draws and continued all day today with action set to conclude Sunday with the finals set for two o'clock. While the Balnbow got under way with 32 rinks seeking top money in two events a 16-rink senior competition got under way as well Friday afternoon. The Half-Century bonspiel, for curlers 50-years of age and over, will also end Sunday with draws throughout the day to- day. In Friday's first draw Le3 Rowland of Calgary nipped Lyle Davis of Lethbridge leav- ing only Larry Lawrence the lone member of the host club alive after the four o'clock draw.

Northcott, of Cal- gary, is a five-time Alberta champion and a former Rain- bow winner while Dalsto was on three Alberta cham- pionship rinks in the 1950's.

World Series game at night? Senators left holding LOS ANGELES (AP) The dealers have folded their hands at baseball's winter meetings leaving Boston Red Sox am Baltimore Orioles holding the blue chips and Washington's fin ancially strapped Senators hold ing the bag. Trades sending shortstop Luis Aparicio to the Ited Sox and pitchers Pat Dobson and Tom Dukes to the world champion Orioles stood out among the 13 deals made at the major l level before Friday's conclusion of the week-long meetings. While his American League East rivals moved to strengthen themselves for the 1971 season, Washington owner Bob Short, deeply in debt, failed in a bid to unload top talent for the needed cash. On the administrative side, commissioner Bowie Kuhn said Friday that World Series games might be played for the first time at night next year because of their television appeal. We have suggested night World Series games to the net- work he said, "and they are intrigued by it. "Last summer's all-star game {played at night) was the big- gest prime-tune spoils show in television history." PUT KNOWLES ON' JIARKET Short, who had picked up con- troversial stars Denny McLain and Glut Flood in earlier deals, offered to peddle Darold Knowles, one of the league's best relief pitchers, for He also is reported to have placed a 51 million price tag on slugger Frank Howard. But there were no takers, and the financial plight of the Wash- on franchise continued to concern other AL officials as they headed for home after the meetings ended. 'Short's problem was dis- cussed, informally, not offi- AL president Joe Cronin said Friday. "We'll keep in con- tact with him, of course, but he hasn't asked the league for any money." The Red Sox broke up their 1970 infield to land Aparicio, a 36-year-old veteran who baited a career-high .316 for Chicago White Sox last season. They sent second baseman Mike An- drews and young shortstop Luis Alvarado to the Wlu'te Sox, who acquired nine players in four deals during the meetings. "Getting Aparicio is going to make Boston that much ;ougher, but all the other clubs in our division have strength- ined themselves, said Earl Weaver, whose Orioles added another potential 20-game winner when they got Dobson in 4-for-2 swap with San Diego Padres. WON 14 LAST SEASON Dobson was 14-15 for the Na- ional League West tailenders ast year. The Orioles also re- ceived reliever Tom Dukes from the Padres in return for litchers Tom Phoebus, Fred 3eene and Al Severinsen and shortstop Enzo Hernandez. California Angels picked up centre Ken Berry from the White Sox and Pittsburgh Pir- ates obtained pitcher Bob John- son from Kansas City Royals in other multi-player trades. After Friday's closing joint meeting of the two leagues, commissioner Kuhn said he has approved the Chicago Cubs' widely-criticized deal that re- turned 47-year-old reliever Hoyt Wilhelm to Atlanta Braves less than 2Vz months after the Braves sold him to Chicago dur- ing the NL East stretch race. It had been suggested that the original deal amounted to a lend-lease gambit which dam- aged the game's image. "1 am satisfied there was no impropriety in the deal as it was said Kuhn, adding that he had spoken to both clubs since Monday's return swap. All goals came in third period Flyers By THE CANADIAN PRESS Philadelphia Flyers spent most of last season fighting for second place in the National Hockey League's West Division, burned themselves out and dropped right cut of the playoff picture by losing their last six games of the schedule. This year the Flyers have been hard-pressed much of the season to keep abreast of the pacesetters but their position improved Friday night as they did all their scoring in the third period en route to a 4-0 shutout of California Golden Seals. It was only the second road win of the season for the fourth-place Flyers who moved lo within one point of Minnesota North Stars and five points ehead of fifth-place Pittsburgh Penguins. Philadelphia's Bemie Parent and Gary Smith of California were locked in a goallenders' duel until the last period. GOAL BREAKS TIE Serge Bernier's 10th goal of the season at of the final period broke the ice and the Flyers had it their own way until the end of the game. They added three more goals in the next eight minutes and directed 12 shots at Smith' in the third period while limiting Call- Gaudaiir to look into Deiison case TORONTO (CP) Jake Gau- daur, Canadian Football League commissioner, said today he will investigate the disputed of halfback Moses Den- son from. Ottawa Rough Riders' negotiation list to Montreal Al- ouettes. Gaudaur said he received a ormal request today from the Jttawa club and "we will look into the matter." "But beyond that, I wouldn't care to comment on the ssid Gaudaur. David Loeb, the Ottawa club owner, has said he may sue for- ner manager Red O'Quinn for laving "stole" Denson by tak- ng the player off the Ottawa ist and putting him on the Montreal list just before O'Quinn moved to the Als.
