Agent Phone 321-3201 SASKATCHEWAN SKIP MITCHELL A cool million in next showdown NEW YORK (AP) The booming sport of tennis is bor- rowing a page from boxing with the ballyhooed, high- Fight card slated for Blairmore Boxing will be returning to the Crowsnest Pass Sunday when the Blairmore Lions Club presents a 10 bout amateur fight card. The card will feature Blair- more boxer Carmen Rinke, a former Canadian champion and member of the Canadian team that competed in the Commonwealth Games in New Zealand. Rinke will battle Buddy McKay, a welterweight from Great Falls, Montana. Shayne Hoyt, a middleweight who won a gold medal in the boxing at the recently completed Canada Winter Games, will be in the semi windup, going against Doug Bush of Great Falls. Boxers from Calgary, Ed- monton and Lethbridge will also compete on the card. Admission is for ringside, for rush and for children. Proceeds from the matches will go towards new tennis courts and other Lions Club projects in the Crowsnest Pass. The card gets under way at 1 p.m. moneyed challenge match. The latest is the million battle between Jimmy Con- nors and John Newcombe, the world's two top-ranked players, set for Las Vegas, Saturday, April 26. Like the big boxing shows, it will be an electronic spectacu- lar played before a small studio audience and millions watching on television. It will be shown nationally on CBS. Connors, the 22-year-old up- start who dazzled the'tennis world last year by sweeping the Australian, Wimbledon and United States cham- pionships for No. 1 world ranking, said of the match: "I think we can have two or three of these matches a year in addition to our tourna- best against the near best. Like in boxing, we will have a man on top and 10 challengers ranked behind." "Like the Roman agreed New- combe, speaking via satellite from far off Auckland, N.Z. "People like to see man against man, one testing his skills against the other." CBS paid to land this particular extravaganza, which Robert Wussler, CBS vice-president, said was more than three times the amount paid for the Connors-Rod Laver match in Las Vegas Feb. 2. Before that, Bobby Riggs beat Margaret Court and himself suffered a humiliating setback at the hands of Billie Jean King last year.

(CP) Sharon Grigg's strategy almost backfired on her Wednesday night but a pair of last-end misses by Saskatchewan opponent Marj Mitchell enabled Alberta to pull out a key 7-4 victory over Five key Dodgers still not signed The ASSOCIATED PRESS A number of major league baseball players are taking their time about signing 197J contracts while Tony Con- igliaro, out of the game for 3Vi years following a beanball in- cident, is just anxious to get back to work. And Philadelphia Phillies are trying to acquire Dick Allen, the reluctant slugger, from Atlanta Braves, who would like either pitcher Steve Carlton or slugger Greg Luzinski in return. Meanwhile, Frank Robin- son, baseball's first black manager, made his official debut as Cleveland Indians opened spring training camp at Tucson, Ariz., and the National League champion Los Angeles Dodgers flew into Vero Beach, Fla., without five key unsigned players. The 30-year-old Conigliaro, who has impressed the Boston Red Sox brass at Winter Haven, Fla., with his long ball hitting while working out on his own, joined the club's first official drills today. Boston general manager Dick O'Connell says he hopes to use the former outfielder as a designated hitter. Conigliaro's career was pre- maturely he has attempted several come- backs of a serious eye injury suffered when he was hit by a pitch in August, 1967, while playing for Boston. At Clearwater, Fla., Phillies' general manager Paul Owens said Wednesday he is negotiating with the Braves for the rights to Allen. The controversial Allen, trad- ed by Chicago White Sox to Atlanta during the off-season, has said he won't report to the Braves but has indicated he would return to Philadelphia where he started his career. Braves' vice-president Ed- die Robinson said he discuss- ed Luzinski and Carlton for Allen. Frank Robinson, still active as a player, went through workouts with his players and said he will concentrate on the designated hitter's role. He said Boog Powell, acquired Library, Purity win Miner's Library defeated the LCC 6-4 Wednesday in a City Recreation Hockey League game. Ken Boulton scored three times for the winners and Bob Bartlett added two and Larry Boulton one. Robin Honart had two for the losers and Terry Pocza and Bill Buchanan one apiece. Purity Bottling dropped the Labor Club 5-2 with goals coming from Tom Yip, Tim Negrello, Dave Ball, Dan Paskuski and Duane Berbers. Randy Maxwell scored both goals for the losers. from Baltimore on Tuesday, would be the regular first baseman. Pitchers Andy Messer- smith, Tommy John and Doug Rau and shortstop Bill Russell and left fielder Bill Buckner are the unsigned members of the Dodgers, who began drills today. Pittsburgh Pirates, who opened camp for the entire squad Wednesday at Bradeh- ton, Fla., list outfielder Richie Zisk and third baseman Richie Hebner as holdouts. Gold medal winners play tonight The Lethbridge Native Sons, gold medal winners in the hockey at the Canada Winter Games, resume their regular Central Alberta Junior League schedule tonight.

The win pulled Miss Grigg and her rink from Medicine Hat, into a tie for the lead with Saskatchewan after seven rounds. Each has a 6-1 record while British Columbia and Quebec are next with 5-2 records. Alberta and undefeated Sas- katchewan were tied 4-4 after eight ends Wednesday night and Miss Grigg said her strategy was to blank the ninth end so she could have last rock going home in the 10th. "As it turned out, I had a chance to count two and pick- ed up one, which really put us in a bind because we were one up coming home without last rock." She said her rink played the final end "to steal one, or just to make sure that they only got one." TURNED OUT WELL "It turned out well for us. We got a couple of misses from them and managed to win a game." In other seventh-round games, Bea Cole of London, Ont., beat Diane Blanchard of Charlottetown, P.E.I., 12-5; Lee Tobin of Montreal defeated Phyllis MacDonald of Halifax 7-5; Marion Radcliffe of Kelowna, B.C., beat Gail Hiscock of St. John's, Nfld., 12-5 and Joan Mogk of Souris, Man., defeated Ivy Lord of Saint John, N.B., 8-3. In the sixth round Wednes- day afternoon, Saskatchewan beat New Brunswick 10-8, Alberta edged Newfoundland 6-5, B.C. whipped Ontario 12-5, Manitoba beat Nova Scotia 11- 5 and Quebec defeated P.E.I. 12-5. Manitoba had a 4-3 record going into today's last two rounds while Newfoundland was 3-4, Nova Scotia and On- tario were 2-5 and New Brunswick and P.E.I, were 1- 6. If a playoff is necessary, as appears likely, it will be played Friday morning. "They curled well enough to the defeated Saskatche- wan skip said of her rink members. "I didn't. I missed the shots." She said she missed a free draw in the fourth that would, have given her four instead of three and the two in the 10th "that had to be big ones." "If I had made the first one (in the 10th) I'm quite sure, that would have been the game. But miss two big ones like that and you can expect to lose." Miss Grigg said the Sas- katchewan skip missed a ta- keout and "cleaned out.her own two and left ours" and then missed a. draw on the se- cond shot.. Miss Grigg said she was nervous going into the game "but I don't think I was more uptight about this game than I was any of the others." In this afternoon's eighth round, Miss Grigg goes against Ontario while B.C. faces .P.E.I., Saskatchewan plays Quebec, Newfoundland meets Manitoba and Nova Scotia plays New Brunswick. Tonight's final round has Al- berta against P.E.I., Saskatchewan against Manitoba, B.C. against Nova Scotia, Newfoundland against Ontario and Quebec against New Brunswick.

Expansion to miss Seattle at least for next season NEW YORK (CP) A Seattle group advised the National Hockey League on Wednesday that it could not implement its previous million offer to put an NHL team in Seattle next season. That means there will be no expansion team in Seattle for the 1975-76 season. But California Golden Seals could end up in Denver next season. William Jennings, president of New York Rangers and chairman of the NHL's expan- sion committee, said in a brief statement that Vincent Abbey, president of Seattle Totems hockey club, is con- tinuing to work to fulfill various conditions for an NHL franchise in 1976-77. Abbey heads a Seattle syn- dicate which was granted a conditional franchise last year along with Denver for the 1976-77 season. Jennings reported that the NHL had been advised that Seattle Totems, now in the Central Hockey League, "would not be prepared in the near future to implement its previous offer to acquire an NHL team for the 1975-76 season. WAS LAST Abbey had been given a week's extension by the NHL to come up with a tl-million letter of credit. But Wednesday's 4 p.m. EST deadline was the last the NHL was willing to grant. Jennings also said that he had been assured by Ivan Mullenix of the Denver Spurs hockey club that Denver's investors would'complete by Saturday their offer to purchase the Golden Seals, now based in Oakland. The Seals, now owned by the league, are losing a day with the losses being footed by the other NHL owners. Mullenix also had a Wednes- day deadline to produce a II- million letter of credit. But Jennings made no men- tion of the deadline. However, the NHL's board of governors is scheduled to meet Saturday in New York. Presumably the transfer of. ownership.of the Golden Seals will be the .major item on the agenda.
