(CP) -Rinks from British Columbia, Northern Ontario and Alberta shared the lead with 2-0 records at the close of the first day's competition in the Canadian seniors' curling chaimpsonship. Prince'-Edward Island curlers gained a split in matches at the Idylwylde Curling Club, but skip Dr. Wen MacDonald was the biggest loser of the day when thieves broke into his room at the President Hotel and stole $300 from his wallet. Ralph Smith of Noranda guided his Northern Ontario rink to an easy 15-6 victory over Nova Scotia, skipped by James Wilbur, in the opening draw. But in the second round they were hard-pressed to gain a 7-4 decision over Bill McTavish's Winnipeg rink. "That was the toughest match we have had this year," Smith said. "We were nip and tuck all tlie way and it wasn't until wo broke through with two in the ninth that we were able to pull ahead. "In the last end we just played a takeout game and made them come to us. We had two points and they seeded a three-ender to win." Nastase's tantrums overlooked CALGARY (CP) - Die Nas-tase of Romania gave Calgary tennis fans all they bargained for Sunday when he captured the men's singles and doubles titles and provided another of his patented tantrums. The brilliant Nastase, a lieutenant in the Romanian Army, conquered Paul Gerken of Stamford, Conn., 6-4, 7-6 to win the singles crown and teamed with Mike Estep of Dallas, Tex., to halt Hungarian stars Peter Szoke and Soboles Ba-ranyi, 6-7, 7-5, 6-3. His masterful tennis was not enough, in the eyes of many fans, to overcome his behavior. He assailed officials, jabbered at fans and insulted a 10-year-old ball boy during his two matches Sunday. Earlier in the week, he objected to noises by fans, complained about linesmen's decisions and was one of many who said playing conditions were too fast for top international tennis. He earned $3,000 for winning the singles and $500 as his share of the doubles title. Gerken won $2,000 in singles, while Saboles and Baranyi won $300 each. Nastase reached the final by defeating his former Davis Cup partner, Ion Tiriac, 3-6, 7-5, 6-1, in Saturday's semi-final. Earlier, he downed Nick Kalo of Greece and Jas Singh of India. BEAT NO. 2 SEED Gerken eliminated Don McCormick of Vancouver, Mike Belkin of Montreal, Pat Cramer of South Africa and second-seeded Juan Gisbert of Spain in his march to the finals. Meanwhile down east Roy Emerson played into Rod Layer's strength Sunday when he elected to receive service in the final of the $50,200 Toronto International tennis tournament. Emerson wanted to put the pressure on the top-seeded Layer right from the start in the all-Australian final but Laver responded by holding service all the way for a 6-2, 6^1 win in the match that paid $10,000 to the winner. "I felt fairly confident, especially when I saw my serve go- ing in," Laver said after winning his third of the five World Championship Tennis Group A tournaments this year. "That was the real money-winner. Weekend scorers SUNDAY Minnesota 1 at Philadelphia 5. Philadelphia-MacLeish, Schultz, Lonsberry, Nolet, Fiett; Minnesota-Nanne.

I was down 15-40 once and I served a couple of good serves and got out of it. That doesn't happen too often."
