Both are just 17. Marie Therese, green-eyed n n d apple-cheeked, replaced Canada's Nancy Greene as the women's Olympic giant slalom champion, winning the race in a blinding snowstorm. Laurie, a five-foot-five 130- pounder, finished fourth. She missed a bronze medal by 13- jOOths of a second. Only one other Canadian had ever done now the wife of Canadian coach Al Rainc, who won her gold medal four years ago in the giant slalom and a silver in the slalom at Grenoble. France. Wearing a four-leaf clover for luck, Miss Nadig burst down the serpentine course on Mount Teine and flawlessly skirled its 51 gales in one min- ute 29.90 seconds to again beat out Anncmarie Proell of Austria as she had done in the opening downhill race Saturday. Wiltrud Drcxcl of Austria won the bronze. Marie Therese is only the sec- ond woman lo win two Olympic gold medals in Alpine skiing. The first double winner was AJI- drea Mead Lawrence of the United Stales, who look the sla- lom and giant slalom in the 1952 Games.

Pirate general manager Joe L. Brown did not reveal tin amount of Clemente's contract, hut sources close lo the Pirates said the 37-year-old outfielder was receiving a raise. Brown dismissed reports that Clemente was demanding for this year. He said the rumor had come from a friend of Clemente's. Ellis, M-9 last year, was the starting pitcher in iast season's all-star game. His 19 victories were the most for a Pirate pitcher since Vernon Law won 20 hi 1960.

None of the Canadians speak Japanese, but every Japanese is doing his level best to tile language of his guests. Which leads to notices such ns the laundry list in press house which gives you the price for refurbishing "brouscs" and and the restaurant sign 'advertis- ing "cigalettes."

But every time I say 'Je vous somebody kisses me." Her only language, other than Japanese, it should be pointed out, is English.

The Pronghorns, who clinch- ed third place with four straight victories, watched the Thunder- ettes lake away their winning streak. From the opening whistle the Thunderetles proved to be the stronger of tile two clubs and managed to rack up a comfort- able 31-15 half-time lead. Thunderettes' tough defence proved to bo one of their stronger points as they held the Pronghorns well outside shoot- ing range for most of the game. If the Pronghorns ever de- cided to drive in towards the basket the story could change considerably. Terri McGovern paced Thunderettes with a solid 15- point performance while Janica Gee chipped in with eight. Minnie Van Dieren was high scorer for the Pronghorns hoop- ing 12 points while Debbie Whitehead added five.
