IF IT I'D NEVER 9CT A CHANCE Roundup of short sport Twenty-one teams are after Jim Hunter NEW YORK (AP) Twen- ty-one major league baseball teams have their lures out (or Jim (Catfish) Hunter. Twenty want to sign him and one wants to keep him. And the teams trying to sign Hunter got the green light Wednesday from Alameda County, Calif., Superior Court, at least until Jan. 3. While one team after another was burning up the telephone lines to Hunter's lawyers in Ahoskie, N.C., Judge Spurgeon Avakian refused to grant Charles 0. Finley a temporary restrain- ing order that would have prevented the clubs from making Hunter offers. However, Avakian set Jan. 3 for a hearing of the case on its merits. In refusing to grant the tem- porary restraining order, Ava- kian said: "I don't think realistically any club will sign him with the court action still pending. I also think Hunter would want to wait to get the most he probably could out of any contract. I don't see enough basis to challenge the arbitra- tion in the meantime." On Monday, a three-man arbitration panel decided that Finley had failed to live up to a contract agreement with Hunter and ruled the star pitcher of the world champion Oakland A's a free agent. Hunter took his case to arbi- tration after the World Series, claiming Finley had failed to place in a special de- ferred fund. Baseball Commissioner Bowie Kuhn has ruled that no team can sign Hunter until midnight Sunday. However, 12 teams con- tacted Hunter's lawyers within three hours after the Bowling scores CAPRI BOWL YOUNG ADULTS Tom Miklos 267; Cherye Obermeyer 241 Ron Gretzlnger 289; John Wildman 277; Leslie Killing 261; Garry Lohuls 260; Drew Battle to tie Gas Co. and AGT failed to prove anything in their In- dustrial League meeting as they battled to a 5-5 stalemate.

Chester surprises LONDON (CP) Fourth Division Chester continues to surprise in the English League's Cup soccer com- petition. Chester, unbeaten at home this year and well up in the Fourth Division standings, eliminated First Division Newcastle United with a 1-0 victory in a quarter-final replay. In an earlier round, Chester blanked Leeds United of the First Division 3-0. A goal by John Jones earned Chester a semi-final berth against Second Division Aston Villa. If Chester wins the two legs of the semi-final, it will be the first time a Fourth Division club has reached a Cup final at Wembley Stadium in London. In another Cup game, Man- chester United of the Second Division beat Middlesbrough 3-0 to gain a semi-final berth against Norwich City. Middlesbrough replaced Manchester United in the First Division.

NOTE: Before making your choice you may wish to seek advice from the nearest CPP office. The staff will be pleased to heip you. Are you approaching age 65? If you have made your choice and want your CPP retirement pension to commence as early as possible, you should apply two or three months before your 65th birthday. NOTE: There is no provision for retroactive payment of retirement pensions between the ages of 65 and 69. So if you're in that age group or approaching it, get advice as soon as possible.
