Have been apart since 1958 Kapp, Alvarez are old friends SAN FRANCISCO (AP) - Joe K a p p, an exile from pro football for two years, is looking forward to getting together with an old boyhood friend who has returned home after Vk years in North Vietnam prisons. . Kapp and Navy Lt. Cmdr. Everett Alvarez Jr., the longest held Americam pilot, went to school together in Salinas, Calif. Alvarez was taken to hospital in Oakland after his return to the United States. "I'm going to take him out and we're going to do up Monterey," says Kapp, the former Calgary Stampeder, British Columbia Lion, Minnesota Vikings anl-New Eng- ' land Patriots quarterback. The football player hasn't seen Alvarez since 1958, when Kapp was at the University of California and Alvarez at Santa Clara University. Kapp and Alvarez' sister, Delia, are working to establish a scholarship fund at Santa Clara in Everett Alvarez' name. "What he has done is a fine example for Mexican Ameri- cans, or any Americans, said Kapp. "He worked hard to earn his degree from a great school, to become a flier and to serve his country." As a boy, Kapp recalls, Alvarez "would always do what it took to win; he would do the job." "And those are the best kind of winners there are." Alvarez participated in high school sports as a distance runner in track and a receiver in football. Kapp was playing for the Lions in the Western Football Conference when Alvarez was captured in 1964. In fact, that year was the best the Lions ever had as they captured the Grey Cup under Kapp's guidance. He came to Calgary Stam-peders after finishing college in 1959, but was traded to the Lions in 1961. His days in Canadian football ended in 1967 when he signed a contract with Houston Oilers of the American Football League while still under contract to the Lions. The Houston contract wasn't approved by the AFL and after being waived through the Canadian Football League the burly quarterback went to the Vikings for cash where he led the club to a National Foot ball League title. Kapp has a multi million dollar suit pending against the NFL, alleging he has been barred from playing in the league for his refusal to sign an NFL standard players contract in 1971. Superstars meet face-lo-face in seven events Race driver Revson takes the lead misconduct and game misconduct. The Pronghorns also picked up the lone major penalty called. Series "B" between the Miners' Library and Purity Bottling will get under way Wednesday night at 8 p.m. at Henderson. Meanwhile, a pair of Labor Club forwards finished one-two in the league scoring race as the final statistics released today show.

His point total was enough to edge team' mate Tim Negrello who came up with a league-leading 28 goals while adding 30 helpers. Two members of the Miners' Library finished third and fourth. Randy Maxwell was fourth with 17 goais and 36 assists for 53 points while Brian Murkin came up with 24 goals and 21 assists for 45 points. The league ibadman was Pat Walsh of the Lethbridge Community College as he cooled his heels for 77 minutes during the season. Dan Paskuski of Purity Bottling was second with 63 minu'.es while Cam Hodgsn served 60 minutes in the sin bin. Rod Morrice got the nod as the league's top netminder. Playing with the U of L, Morrice had a goals against average of 3.12 as he allowed 81 goals in 26 games.

(AP) - Auto racing driver Peter Revson outgunned sleepy-eyed hockey star Rod Gilbert 6-1 Monday in a Superstars tennis final between two of the sports world's most eligible bachelors. "It's my first pro tennis victory." Revson, the handsome 32-year-old hero of in-, ternational Formula One racing, said with a smile. "Bring on Rod Laver." ' Ten noted athletes are participating in a unique, two-day competition in sports events other than those for which they are famous. The 5-foot-ll, 165-pound Revson took a third in weight-lifting, missing at the 160-pound level, to give him the opening day lead with 23 points in three sports. Frazier, who admitted to "nearly drowning" in swimming competition, was upset by the lanky 175-pound Sea-gren in weigbtlifting. Frazier, who weighs 215, was eliminated with 170 pounds on the bar. Unlike the other superstars, the 26-year-old Seagren had never earned a professional sports paycheque before Monday. Still awaiting his March 24 debut on the new pro track circuit, Seagren's first place in weightlifting and second in swimming earned him $5,100. Revson's payoff for the day was $6,900.' Pro bowler Jim Stefanich of Joliet, III., edged baseball slugger Johnny Bench by one stroke with a 41 in the nine-liole golf tournament. Both hit shots out of bounds on the last hole. Bench rebounded to win the bowling event despite a weak 131 game. He was. third in tennis for a total of 21 points, second to Revson, and a $6,-300 payoff. Seagren was third over-all with 17 points. Gilbert received $2,100 for his tennis achievement. Each athlete is competing in seven events of his choosing. Hayes, the 6-foot-9 ace of Baltimore Bullets, outlasted pro bowler Jim Stefanich 7-5 in the first round and Bench crushed pole vaulting record holder Bob Seagren 6-1. Bench pocketed $1,200 for third, winning it on total points scored over fellow semi-finalist Hayes. Hayes collected $600 and Stefanich got $300 as the highest-scoring loser in the first round. Other entries are tennis great Laver, forced to pass up his specialty, along with sluing star Jean-Claude Killy and former heavyweight boxing champion Joe Frazier. Tennis got off to a laughable start with Stefanich serving three straight double faults. He later hit one into a nearby canal in the loss to Hayes. Promoters for the competition had forecast crowds of 15,000. Only about 500 showed up on a misty, 45-de- gree day that had contestants and spectators shivering as a 20-mile-an-hour wind lowered the chill factor. Gilbert was delayed in arriving-he played a Sunday game in New York when the Rangers beat the Islanders 3-2 in National Hockey League play. Bowling scores CAPRI BOWL.

Saskatcheivan surprised Alberta quartet Ontario foursome only unbeaten rink left SUDBURY, Ont. (CP) - After the ninth end Monday night, skip Ralph Smith thought Northern Ontario was going to lose its first game in the Canadian seniors curling championship. Newfoundland, skipped by John Pike of Grand Falls, quickly changed Smith's mind following the rink's first two shots on the 10th which "left us an opening. Behind 9-7 after nine ends, Northern Ontario won 10-9 on �r\ extra end to remain the only undefeated rink with a 3-0 i icoid after four rounds in the 11-rink, round-robin tournament. Smith, from Noranda, Que., an area which takes part in the Northern Ontario playoffs, had a third-round bye. "We were lucky to get the win . . . I thought we had lost it in the 10th but they gave US' a break when they missed on those first two rocks," Smith said. "It left us an opening . . . when I had last rock with one biting the 12-foot circle, I knew we could tie it up." In anothe? fourth-round game, Dr. Bill McTavish of Manitoba could have had similar thoughts when he entered the 10th and final end trailing 7-5 to previously-undefeated British Columbia, skipped by Roy Stone of Trail. However, the Winnipeg foursome counted five points on the 10th end to win 10-7 and knock B.C. into a second-place tie with New Brunswick, both with three wins and a defeat. Other evening results had Guy Chenail of Quebec City beating James Wilbur of Halifax 12-9, Dr. Wen MacDonald of Char-lottetown whipping Ed Rhodes of Brampton, Ont., 11-3 and John Murphy of Saint John, N.B., defeating Gil Strumm of Saskatoon 7-4. Alberta, led by Bob Cruikshank of Red Deer, drew the bye. In the third round, Manitoba defeated Newfoundland 8-4, Quebec beat Ontario 12-8, New Brunswick edged P.E.I. 9-8, Saskatchewan surprised Alberta 12-7 and B.C. bounced Nova Scotia 13-5. Alberta and Manitoba each has 2-1 records, Quebec and P.E.I, are 2-2, Saskatchewan 1-2, Newfoundland and Nova Scotia both 1-3, and Ontario 0-4. in the fifth round this afternoon; B.C. meet Northern On- tario, P.E.I, plays Nova Scotia-Saskatchewan faces Ontario, New Brunswick takes on Alberta and Manitoba meets Quebec. Newfoundland had the bye. The sixth round tonight had Ontario against Alberta, Manitoba against P.E.I., Norther Ontario against Quebec, B.C. against Newfoundland and Saskatchewan against Nova Scotia, New Brunswick had the bye. In the Northern Ontario-Newfoundland game, which lasted three hours and 45 minutes, Smith erased the 9-7 deficit when he picked up two by drawing to the four-foot circle with his final rock on the 10th end. On the extra end, Smith stole one when Pike's last rock went off i\ guard and wont through the house. "With John having last rock in the extra end; we just tried to keep rocks around the front of the house to make them take us out," Smith said. "We finally got one hidden back at the edge of the eight-foot ring behind a guard . . . John's last rock was just a little heavy and his raise 'went past our rock and out of the house." The P.E.I, rink of third John Squarebriggs, second Doug George and lead Dan O'Rourke broke up a 3-3 tie with Ontario after six ends by counting three on the seventh, four on the eighth and one on the ninth.
