Reagan, a former varsity player at Eureka College in Illinois who later became a sportscaster and mcvie actor before turning to politics, re- ceived the foundation's Gold Medal Award, its highest honor. Previous recipients in- cluded Presidents Dwight D. Eisenhower, John F. Kennedy and Richard M. Nixon and former President Herbert Hoover.

Oil Kings regain top By THE CANADIAN PRESS Edmonton Oil Kings squeezed past Calgary Centennials in the bailie for first in the western di- vision of the Western Canada Hockey League Tuesday night. But this has happened so many times recently, Edmonton isn't looking really confident. The Oil Kings dropped the i Centennials into second spot with a 7-4 win over visiting Brandon Wheat Kings. Regina Pats trimmed visiting Flin Flon Bombers 6-3 in the other WfJHL game. The win gave third-place Regina a five- j point lead over the Bombers, who have 24 points. t The Oil Kings hold a one-point i edge over Calgary, who have played three fewer games than Edmonton. ment Monday night. "A reliable confidential source" had said that a "pot party" was in prog- ress at the apartment, police said. Berry was charged with ob- structing officers and Marshall with running a disorderly house. A hearing was set for Dec. 23 in state court in Marietta. Angela Carol Nichols of Mar- ietta was charged with possess- ing marijuana, some unidenti- fied pills, and a device sus- pected of being used to smoke marijuana. Marshall was released on Sl.OCO bond and Berry on a bond, arranged for by Falcon coach Norm Van Rrocklin. Club owner Rankin Smith is- sued a statement Tuesday say- ng: "The incident involving At- anta Falcon players Bob Berry and Randy Marshall on Monday evening was an unfortunate one. Cobb County authorities inform us that no Falcon players were involved in the use or posses- sion of drugs. Both Berry and Mai-shall have retained counsel and we understand that counsel will request an early hearing. "Falcon club policy is that we do not make public announce- ments regarding internal disci- plinary action." Knudson to try his luck FREEPORT (CP-AP) George Knudson, touring pro from Toronto, will be among several veterans eyeing this week's Bahama Islands Open golf tournament with somewhat more than passing in- terest. With most of the big names passing up the tournament, in- terest will be focused on the fight for a spot on 1972's exemp- tion list, made up of this year's top 60 money-winners on the PGA tour. Knudson is in the group of those ranked 56th to 66th that has entered this tournament in an effort to avoid having to play qualifying rounds for regular tournaments. Knudson, 62nd on the list, has earned S40.032 this year. Other veterans looking for a spot on the exempt list are Dick Lotz, Jim Jamieson, Bob Smith, Jim Colbert, George Johnson, Terry Dill, Larry Ziegler, R. H. Sikes and Bert Greene. Jack Nicklaus, Lee Trevino and Arnold Palmer resolved the fight for the leading money-win- ning spot and all three are skip- ping the last event on the pro tour this season. Nicklaus won the first prize in the Disney World Open tournament and took the title with a record Trevino finished second with and Palmer had Probably the biggest names on hand for the 72-hole event that starts Thursday on the par-71 L u c a y a n Country Club course are defend- ing champion Doug Sanders, M a s t c r s title-holder Charles Coody and winners George Archer and Jerry Heard. citlier of their last two games- against Detroit and at to advance into the playoffs for a fourth straight season. Detroit has a 7-4-1 record. If the Lions won their last two games and the Vikings tied the Bears, the teams would tie for the Central championship. But the Vikings would make the playoffs because they have a better record against teams in .he NFC. Minnesota has only two losses against NFC teams while Detroit's four losses and a tie were against teams in their own division. Those four defeats and a tie also could cost the Lions a play- off spot as the best seconoVplace team in the division. The lead- ing contender for that category is Washington, at 8-3-1 with one of its losses against the AFC Kansas City Chiefs. The Vikings can still lose both games, and win a playoof spot if [he Lions drop their final game. EXPECTS TOUGH GAME Grant, at any rate, expects a rugged game against the Lions, who have lost seven straight games to the Vikings including the season opener 16-13. We have felt and do feel they are one of the premier said Grant. "They have a different image from three or four years ago when they were known mostly for their defence. Their offence has big names stars now like Greg Landry, Charlie Sanda's and Steve Owens and they are scoring a lot of points. :'Tliat's not taking anything away from their defence cither. They have a great set of line- backers." The Lions have scored 304 points, third highest in the en- tire NFL and second in the NFC behind Dallas, while allowing 226. Minnesota has scored 189 points and allowed but ond lowest in the NFL behind Baltimore's 116. The Vikings hold the record for fewest points allowed in a season, 133. Tlie Vikings report no serious injuries from the stunning 30-14 loss at San Diego Sunday. 'PLAYER OF THE YEAR' Golfer tee Trevino is all eyes as he looks at his "player of the year" aword which was awarded to him by 1he publisher of Golf Magazine during a reception at New York's Rainbow Room Tuesday. Winner of on the golf tour this year, Trevino was apologetic aboyi receiving the honor. Wendy Kas Del Rice named to Angels' post ANAHEIM (AP) Del Rice, a major league catcher and coach for 21 years, was named manager Tuesday of California Angels in the American League. He was rewarded for leading three Angels' farm teams to pennants in consecutive sea- sons. The appointment of H.iee, 49, for a one year term ended a five week search by Harry Dalton, the Angels' new gener- al manager. Rice, a catcher for 17 major league seasons who also coach- ed with the Angels and Cleve- land Indians for four more campaigns, succeeds H a r o Id Lefty Philips, who fired after a strife torn season. Rice managed the Angels' Salt Lake City team to a 78-68 record in 1971. winning the Southern Division title of the Pacific Coast League by three games over Phoenix. Salt Lake beat Tacoir.a in the PCL play- offs. He also piloted Angel farm teams at San Jose and El Paso to pennants, and he's never finished below third in his minor-league managing career. The native of Portsmouth, Ohio, played for St. Louis Car- dinals from 1945 to 1955 when he was traded to Milwaukee Braves. Giimpcr would like lo Blanda to compare notes?
