(AP Wirephoto) Laver meets Taylor tonight Things will be different TORONTO (CP) Six months ago, Rod Laver met Roger Taylor in a quarter-final match in the Canadian Open tennis tournament. Taylor beat the red-haired Australian, who is the game's first millionaire, in straight sets and the defeat was the final straw in prompting Laver, to take a vacation from tennis. Tonight, Taylor, a six-foot, lES-pound lefthander from Wim- bledon, England, who has a good backhand and a forehand with plenty of topspin, will meet in the quarter-final of a World Championship Tennis tournament. "I won't play him like 1 played him in Toronto the last said Laver who com- plained of mental fatigue after his defeat here six months ago Two iveeks remain Cougars clinch pennant With only two weeks remain- ing in the Southern Alberta "A" Boy's Basketball League schedule all six teams will see action Friday night. The undefeated Catholic Cen- tral Cougars clinched the league pennant edging the Cardston Cougars 4MB last Fri- day. The CCHS Cougars sport an 8-0 record and it is mathemati- cally impossible for the remain- ing clubs to catch them. With two games left the Ray- mond Comets are the closest to the Cougars with a 5-3 record. LCI Hams and the Magralh Zeniths share third place with 4-1 records while Cardston sits in fifth at 2-5. The Medicine Hat Mohawks dwell In the league cellar hav- ing yet to earn a victory this season. In Friday night's action CCHS Cougars will host the LCI Rams, Cardston entertains Magrath and Raymond travels to Medicine Hat. If the Cougars can come up with a win against the Rams Friday night they would most likely finish their league sche- dule undefeated. The Mohawks will face the powerful Cougars in their fi- nal contest of the season. Meanwhile in Southwest Bas- ketball League action four games will Ire staged in both the Boy's and Girl's divisions Friday night. In Boy's division play, the third place CoaJdale Kate An- drews Gaels and the fourth place Winston Churchill Bull dogs will tangle in Lethhridge wliile tlic cellar dwelling Fort MacLeod Flyers visit the sec- ond-place Comets in Milk River.

(AP) Pittsburgh Pirates and Balti- more Orioles are favored to win league titles again and meet in baseball's World Se- ries, according to prc-season odds posted Wednesday by IlETTah s Tahoe Ratebook. Los Angeles Dodgers and Oakland Athletics, along with the Pirates and Orioles, were made favorites to win their respcclire divisions. The Pirates, reigning world champions, are 5-2 choices '.o reach the World Series this year and an e v e n -m o n e y choice to win the National L e a g u e 's Eastern Division race. Baltimore is a pick for Ihe American League pennant and a 1-3 choice in the East- ern Division. Oakland is listed at even money to take Ihe American West flag, and Los Ar.jrelf s is a 7-5 favorite in tho League West. when he pulled out of the dou- bles and abruptly went to his Corona Del Mar, Calif., home for a rest. Laver, who won last year and has won the first two WCT tournaments this year, says his game is sharp and he's feeling "fresh and keen." The Aussie ace, who advanced to the quarter-finals with an easy 6-0, 6-1 victory over Frank Froehling of Fort Lauderdale, Fla., will be playing Taylor, who won last year, for the third lime in Toronto. He beat him in four sets in the best-of-five final for the 1970 Canadian Open championship. But Taylor can still savor the victories over Laver here last year and at Wimbledon in 1970. While the top-seeded Laver was routing Froehling, the un- seeded Taylor had to fashion a 7-5, 4-6, 6-4 upset of Wimbledon titleholder John Newcombe ol Australia, who also won the Ca- nadian Open last year. In milder upsets, lOth-sccdod Charlie Pasarell of Puerto Rico sidelined ilfthseeded Bob Luiz of Tiburon. Calif., 6-2, W and unseeded Fred Etolle outlasted Ilth-sceded John Alexander 4-6, M, 6-4 in a battle of Austral- ians. Second-seeded Ken Rosewall of Australia had tho biggest scare of the day as he had to rally in the final set (o beat Bob Carmichael, An Australian who lives in Paris, France, 3-6, 6-3 W. Seeded players fared better in ither matches as third-seeded Tom Okker of the Netherlands downed Jeff Borowiak of Berke- ley, Calif., 6-3, C-4; seventh seeded Marty Riessen of Evans- ton, 111., eliminated sore-armed Tony Roche of Australia 6-2, 6-1 and ninth-seeded Hoy Emerson of Australia beat Briton Grn- ham Stilwell W, 6-2. Emerson will play Okkcr in tonight's other quarter final. In quarter-final doubles matches, 'he fifth-seeded Arthur Ashe of Richmond, Va., and Luiz will meet the third-seeded Slolle and Rosewall while Alexander and countryman Phil Dent play Car- michael snd Australian Ray ilufrels. Play starts at 5 p.m. EST. Giant slalom cancelled World Cup competitors are ready at Banff reaches points BANFF, Alta. (CP) Sixty- nine o[ the world's top skiers were getting themselves in shape mentally for the resump- tion of World Cup competition today after a break for the Win- ter Olympics in Japan. Tlie last meet was Jan. 24 In Switzerland and the next meet is at Crystal Mountain, Wash., Feb. 26-27. The 69 are the starters in the first run of the men's giant sla- only race scheduled for today on the steep slopes of Mount Norquay. The second run will be held Friday after the two runs of the women's slalom. The meet ends Saturday with a one-run women's giant slalom and the two runs of the men's slalom. First out of the starting gate at 1 p.m. MET today will be Christian Neureuthcr, 22, o[ West Germany. He's well down in standings in 35th place and is not expected to be able to do much with ins goou sUrtiu, position. DUVILLARD STARTS 14TH Series leader Henri Duvillan of France is 14th on the startlo; list for the 41-game course. Duvillard, however, is ex pected to do well despite his seeding because the course should not be badly chopped up by the time he starts. Second-place Jean-Noel Au gert, also of France, starts sixth and fourth-place Gustavo Thoeni of Italy, a gold medalis at Sapporo, Japan, starts eighth. Third-place in the stand ings is held by Austria's Kar Schranz, now retired from com petition. Duvlllard has 97 points, Au gert 94, Schranz 83 and Thoen 67. A special men's giant slalom originally scheduled for today has been cancelled because, o hill conditions. GET FRESH SNOW The area, easily visible fron Banff, received an unexpected two feet of fresh snow Tuesdaj night and officials felt tha course preparation for a secom men's giant slalom would take too much time. A second giant slalom wa made necessary when race or ganizers at Val Gardena, Italy decided to hold a downhill on March 15 instead of a giant sla lorn. Ski federation officials were trying to decide where at the re- maining six meets the even could be held. The starting order today wil I be reversed for the second run Friday and this is where prob I lems could arise. AH the top point-holders then will be at the end of the startinf lineup and will have to content with a course which will be hadly rutted by earlier competi- tors. In addition, the weather fore cast is for a high of 40 degrees today and Friday making wax choice even more crucial than usual. CANADIAN GOES 30TU The first Canadian off at the start today will be Reto Har- rington of Calgary who will start in 30th place. Jim Hunter, also ot Calgary, is 31st. There are 13 Canadians in the starling lineup, 10 Austrians, 10 Italians, nir.e Swiss, nine Ameri- cans, eight French, five West Germans, two Norwegians and one each from Argentina, Brit- ain and Poland. In women 's competition, which is to start Friday, it ap- pears that Annemarie Proell of Austria has Ihe 1972 women's crown wrapped up. She has 203 points, 130 ahead of Isabella Mir of France who is in third place. Francoise Macchi of France, second with 107 and the only woman realy capable of catch- ing Miss Proell. has retired from competition this year be- cause of an injury. Marie Nadig of Switz- erland, a double gold medalist at the Olympics, is in fourth place with 71 points but she would need to win every other race In the series and Miss Proell would have to fall every race to give the Swiss girl any chance of wining.
