Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - December 19, 1970, Lethbridge, Alberta Ninowski paid not to sue AFL? CLEVELAND (AP) Jim Mnowski, a second-string quart- erback during most of his 12 easons in the National Football jeague, says he received a year for four years in secret salary settlement after hreatening to sue the Ameri- can football league. Ninowski was one of the final witnesses Friday before a fed- eral 'grand jury investigating lossible antitrust violations in he NFL. The jury is in holiday and is expected to hear HOOKS OVER ALCINDOR Dave Cowens (18) of Boston Celtics flips perfect hook shot over head of Bucks' Lew Alcindor Friday during National Basketball Association action at Milwaukee. Cowens' teammate John Havlicek, not shown, had attempted a field goal and Cowens picked up rebound before making the hooker. ___________ Wants to oivn Canucks club Uncle Ben buys shares VANCOUVER (CP) Prince George industrialist Ben Ginter said today he has started buy- ing shares in the National Hoc- SPECIAL--------- HEAVY DUTY CAMPER JACKS A FEW PAIRS LEFT TO CLEAR PAIR HUNT WELDiNG SERVICE LTD. 2005 2nd Ave. S. 327-5575 key League Vancouver Canucks and added he would like to take ownership of the club out of American hands. Ginter, known throughout Bri- tish Columbia as Uncle Ben be- cause of the brewery he oper- ates under that name, said in an interview he has bought more than 10 per cent of the recent public issue of common shares in Northw e s t Sports Enterprises Ltd., the company which owns1 the Can- ucks. But he admitted he has a long way to go before he has a real- istic hope of controlling the club, which entered the NHL this year. Northwest Sports Enterprises is controlled by Medical Invest- ment Corporation (Medicor) of Minneapolis, Mum. When the public issue of common shares was announced in Oc- tober, Medicor made clear it in- tended to maintain about 60-per- cent control of Northwest. So Ginter now owns about 10 per cent of the 40 per cent offer- ed to the public. He said he has bought units from the public offering.

Meanwhile the CCHS Flyers made a clean sweep for the host school trouncing the Medic i n e Hat Redskins 59-14 in the pre- liminary "B" Boys encounter. The Cougars registered their first win in four league starts with the one sided affair and left the Mohawks stranded at the bottom of the ladder without a victory. It was a convincing win For Reutzel indicted DALLAS, Tex. (AP) The Dallas County grand jury in- dicted professional football ilayer Lance Rentzel of Dallas Cowboys Friday on a charge of indecent exposure to a juvenile. District Attorney Henry Wade said Rentiers trial probably would be held in February. Rentzel, 27, a wide receiver for the National Football League team, was charged in November in connection with an alleged incident involving a 10- year-old girl in suburban Uni- versity Park. Rentzel, was placed on the Cowboys' inactive list at, his own request after the charge was filed. The football player appeared voluntarily at the University Park police station Nov. 20 and posted a appearance bond. 15-YEAR SIAXIMUM The maximum sentence for indecent exposure in Texas is 15 years on conviction. Rentzel has been with the Cowboys since 1967. He married television star Joey Heatherton April in New York. On Oct. 4, 1966, Rentzel pleaded guilty in St. Paul. Minn., to a formal complaint charging him with "making noise, disturbance and improper and with commit- ting "improper conduct to the disturbance of the citizens." The police report said several residents of the Highland Park neighborhood in St. Paul com- plained that Hentzel had ex- posed himself in the presence of small children on three different occasions. Rentzel was not sentenced in the St. Paul incident, but a mu- nicipal court judge ordered him to seek psychiatric care. in the heart of Calgary's downtown shopping and entertainment area.

Ninowski told reporters the antitrust suit was prepared be- cause the AFL in 19G5 offered him a job at a year for four years, then allegedly backed down after a truce was called in the bidding contest for pro players. The two leagues later merged. Attorney Jerry E. Dempsey said Ninowski, who was playing at the time behind Frank Ryan for Cleveland Browns, was con- tacted by the AFL in May of 1965. "They contacted him through Ollie Spencer, assistant coach at said Dempsey. "A week later, after the truce, they told him to forget it." PREPARED CASE Dempsey said lie prepared an antitrust case naming the AFL, NFL, all the individual clubs and NFL commissioner Pete fiozelle. He said "one of the top antitrust lawyers in the coun- try" helped prepare the action. "The day it was to be filed in said Dempsey, "Jim re- ceived a cheque for The lawyer said the settle- ment cheque signed by Art Mo- dell Browns' owner and then president of the NFL, in effect boosted Ninowski's pay for the previous two seasons with the Browns to a year. Ninowski was paid a year for 1967 and 1908 by Wash- ington Redskins, where he was backup quarterback behind Sonny Jurgensen, Dempsey said. Ninowski went to New _0rle- ans Saints in 1969 and said he retired this year because he "couldn't see going to New Or- leans and sitting on the bench. Ninowski says he doesn't know who paid the settlement that doubled his salary with the Redskins after lie was released on waivers by the Browns in 1967. Dempsey said a part of the settlement agreement was that he would not make public the agreement and would not han- dle similar cases for any other players. The attorney said he was disclosing the details at this time because the statute of limi- tations has run out on such claims.

At half time they maintained a solid 37-11 lead and increased the margin to 55-22 as the third quarter elapsed.
