Finley may sell team MILWAUKEE (AP) Lee MacPhail, new president of baseball's American League, says Oakland Athletics owner Charlie Finley is serious about attempting to sen his dub. And MacPhail said Fintey has talked to a lawyer for Marge Everett of Los Angeles about the sale. Mrs. Everett was rejected recently by the National League as a potential owner of San Diego Padres. Bat the National League decision would not automatically take her out of consideration for an American League drib, PhailMid. Gilchrist survives real world, wants to help other athletes Cookie's pitch Cookie Gilchrist explains a brochure outlining his new organization designed to ease the transition of athletes into everyday life once their careers are over. Jockey Bacon showed courage PHILADELPHIA (AP) "I don't think I'm all that courageous... I ride because I love horses, not because I'm tough or courageous." Mary Bacon delivered that message to men Monday night after being given the Philadelphia Sports Writers Association award for most courageous athlete of the year. Mrs. Bacon, 23, became the third women to win the award since its inception in 1935. "I'm a rider because I can ride as well as the other rid- ers not because I'm cou- rageous and not because I was kidnapped, and not because I'm not scared, but because I have the ability to she said. I want to make a living and support my daughter and be left alone. That's why I like horses better than people, because they don't bug me." WAS KIDNAPPED Mrs. Bacon (she's divorced) has been on the critical list three times from injuries suf- fered on horses. She was the victim of a kidnapping in 1969, and has been shot at "I guess I'm like a cat with nine she said. "I've got four left." Her first in a series of race track injuries was in 1969, when she was thrown by a horse in Oklahoma. Her back was broken. She rode again within six weeks. That same year she rode three of five races on her card one day, but had to quit because she felt ill. That night she gave birth to her daughter. In 1971, in a spill at Ellis Park in Owensburg, Ky., she broke her collarbone and had contusions on her leg, bruised ribs and internal bleeding. She rode again 13 days later. At Pittsburgh in 1972, she CCHS gals superior? As far as high school girls' basketball teams are concerned, the Lethbridge Catholic Central Kittens took another step forward in their attempts to prove their superiority in the sooth over the weekend. Friday night the Kittens captured the city girls' championship title by defeating the Lethbridge Collegiate Institute Clipper Queens 27-20 and Saturday they dropped the Coaldale Kate Andrews Larks 28-13 hi an exhibition tilt The two victories are morale boosters since the Clipper Queens have been the cream of the crop in south for years and the Larks are currently the leaders in the Southwest Conference Girls' Basketball League with a 6-1 fell from a horse and another fell on her. She was uncon- scious for six days. On the llth day she rode three winner, a third and another out of the money. DENVER (AP) Fourteen years of professional football gave Cookie Gilchrist fleeting fame, a pair of bad knees and the devastating, realization that he was fundamentally unprepared for life off the gridiron. But Gilchrist survived in the real world and now is nursing a vision he hopes will make the transition easier for other athletes. It's called the United Athletes Coalition of America and that's what Carlton Chester Gilchrist, 38, is devoting his energies to these days. "What we're interested in is trying to rehabilitate athletes once they're finished playing. We're tfying to salvage the lives of Gilchrist says, sounding more like a so- cial worker than the Woot-3, 255-pound fullback who once set, an American Football League record with 243 yards and five touchdowns hi one game. Cookie starred for nine years in Canada with Sarnia and Kitchener of the Ontario Rugby Football Union and three Canadian Football League Hamilton Tiger-Cats, Toronto Argonauts and Saskatchewan joining Buffalo Bills of the AFL. Gilchrist wants to assemble volunteer professional coun- sellors in such areas as finance, career planning, law, psychology, and he's not only interested in dealing with the ex-athlete but also in educating and advising current athletes and youngsters. Gilchrist says being a professional athlete can become essentially an ego trip, and the comedown, for too many, is hard and fast. Some suddenly find they can't borrow money, people don't recognize them on the street anymore, and all the money from their huge player salaries has been squandered. Gilchrist says: An athlete's instincts to sur- vive in the everyday world are dulled by adulation, acceptance, what he reads in the papers and hears on radio and TV. "Having been exposed to such a high, fast way of living, he sometimes finds he'll do almost anything to sustain himself. He becomes vulnerable to con men who rape him of all the things he's worked hard for. Or he becomes -an alcoholic, drug addict, criminal." Four names added for Bruchet night The wheels of motion began rolling sometime back for the "Ed Bruchet Appreciation Night" March 2. Today, the committee in charge of the event, set for the El Rancho Convention Centre that Saturday evening, announce the names of four table guests, all lifelong friends of Bruchet. Master of ceremonies for the evening will be Henry Viney, former Lethbridge Native Son and now of CFCN TV and Radio in Calgary. Joining Henry at the head table will be Frank Boucher, a member of hockey's Hall of Fame and a former New York Ranger. More recently he was the president of the Western Canada Hockey League. Another head table guest will be Scotty Munro. At times old rivals in the Western Canada Junior Hockey League, Munro and Bruchet long ago laid down their weapons and became very good friends. Munro is currently at the helm of the Calgary Centennials. Munro coached Bruchet's Lethbridge Native Sons to the Memorial Cup semi-final in IMS, losing out to Port Arthur Bruins who went on to win the Memorial Cup over Barrie Flyers in four straight games. The third guest to be named is Mr. Hockey himself in Wilcox, Sask., and for that matter, all of Canada, Monsignor Athol Murray. The building of a boys' school, Notre Dame College, in Wilcox, is just one of many contributions Murray has made to hockey. A figure known throughout the world, he too, is a friend of Bruchet's who will help honor the man who has given so much of not just his time, but of himself, over the years to hockey in Lethbridge and Southern Alberta. All four are close, personal friends of the man who'll be honored on March 2. Diemuth wins Legion curling The Royal Canadian Legion Zone 3 mixed curling playdowns were staged at Nobleford over the weekend and the host team, skipped by Dick Diemuth, emerged with the spoils. Joining Diemuth on his team were Luella Stray at third, Gordon Luchia at second and lead Mary Ann Goldane Second in the competition was Lewis Phillips of Nobleford. Also taking part in the finals were rinks skipped by Bob Hanna of Picture Butte and Bob Button of Lethbridge. Gilchrist can document such cases. "I know a great back, a Hall of Famer, who is sleeping on a park bench in the same city where he was a star. Big Daddy Lipscomb died of an overdose of heroin. Lenny Ford died drunk and broke in some rundown hotel." Gilchrist remembers Warren Wells, former Oakland Raider wide receiver. Wells, dogged by a police record, served out a prison term and attempted a National Football League comeback in 1972. But after a minor altercation with police, he found his parole in 'jeopardy last May. "I went to Oakland and found Wells couldn't put together a Gilchrist says. "All he could talk about was that he didn't understand what they were doing to him and that he just wanted to play football He couldn't adjust to the idea that he was no longer just Warren Wells the football player He's now in a psychiatric ward in Houston." That experience is what gave birth last July to the UACA. "I got together with Ernie Barnes, Dick Bass and other players in the L.A. area to sign an agreement that we need some kind of a system to keep from falling into a bottomless pit, to quit pretending that the world always loves us, that the world will always do things for us." It's now been six years since Gilchrist's sometimes con- troversial and off-beat career ended after playing for teams in Canada and for Buffalo, Denver and Miami. And, although be found the game dehumanizing, he feels an obligation to leave it something.
