Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - February 28, 1975, Lethbridge, Alberta 16 THE LETHBRIOGE HERALD Friday, February 28, 1975 Shoeless ANDY CAPP Slant on has lead LAUDERHILL, FLA. (AP) The pressure won't bother barefoot Bob Stanton, leader in the first round of the 000 Jackie Gleason golf tournament. Staiilon, an Australian now living in Biloxi, Miss., has never won in nine long years on the American professional golf tour. "But I've won big tourna- ments in Europe and Aus- tralia, ho said after taking a three-stroke lead Thursday, shooting an eighl-under-par 64 while tramping the fairways of the Inverrary Country Club course with one shoe off and one shoe on. "I've been in this position before. It won't bother me." The 29-year-old Stanton said he has a calcium deposit in his right foot. "When my foot started hurt- ing, I'd take my shoe off and walk to the next shot. I'd put the shoe on to hit the shot, then take it off again when I had to start walking." MCKLAUS CLOSE Jack Nicklaus birdied his first three holes and his last two to join a group of seven others tied for second at 67. Also at that figure were Mil- ler Barber, Joe Porter, Terry Diehl, Bill Rogers, Doug Sanders, Lou Graham and Ed- die Pearce. Arnold Palmer headed a group at 68, four under par and four back of the leader Wilf Homenuik of Winnipeg was nine strokes off the pace at 73 while Ben Kern of Toronto had a 74. Johnny Miller is not com- peting in this event. Although a non-winner, Stanton had a solid season last year. He finished particularly strong, finishing one shot out of a playoff in the World Open, Lions may be sold to private bidder, no price set thus far for club VANCOUVER (CP) For the first time, the British Columbia Lions football club's general membership is going to consider sale of the Cana- dian Football League team to a private bidder. No price has been set however. At the annual general membership meeting Thurs- day night, a quorum of the club's members passed a resolution to consider sale of the club. The 142-to-58 vote was just enough to clear the majority of 134 needed to approve the resolution. Jim Pattison, a Vancouver businessman, whose Neonex Corporation owns the Van- couver' Blazers of the World Hockey Association, offered the resolution to consider bids for sale. During the 21 years since the club entered the CFL, the Lions have been a community- owned organization. Motions have been made before for private ownership, however, this is the first time one has been approved. Pattison said bids for the club must be received by the club solicitors before April 4 and then an extraordinary meeting of the general membership will be held before April 16 to consider the bids. He said club members would not have to accept any bid. The club has suffered finan- cial difficulties in recent years and during 1974 had a loss of Losses during 1973 were Pattison, who offered to buy the Lions about a year ago, recently said he is still interested in acquiring the team. Dolphin trio in Chicago now? CHICAGO (AP) Football stars Larry Csonka, Jim Kiick and Paul Warfield, formerly of the National Football Rozelle gives his go-ahead CROSS-CANADA VALUES BIG BATTERY POWER! LIFETIME 'SUPREME i JBn I GUARANTEED AS LONG I AS YOU KEEP YOUR CAR! 360 NEW YORK (AP) Pete Rozelle has opened the floodgates, and the World Football League is likely to get swamped again. Rozelle, commissioner of the National Football League, gave his league's 26 teams the go-ahead Thursday to sign any WFL player whose contract has been breached. If missing a pay day amounts to a breach of contract, many WFL players may be looking for new jobs. Rozelle said the NFL will honor "valid WFL claims to player services." But he said any WFL player whose contract has not been honored may sign with an NFL team. According to sports attorneys, there is a considerable number of WFL players who qualify. Rozelle said any NFL team seeking to sign a player must submit his WFL contract to Rozelle's office. In addition, the player must submit an at- fadavit outlining the reasons he believes his WFL contract was breached and he must ob- tain, from an attorney, a legal opinion supporting his belief. If the NFL is satisfied it is on sale legal ground, permis- sion will be given to sign the WFL player. In many cases, NFL teams the 'league's to WFL players. For instance, Tommy Reamon, an exciting outside runner who led the WFL in rushing, is the property of Pittsburgh Steelcrs. Guard Booker. Brown and running backs James McAlister and Kermit John- WFL's most prized rookies last already won their freedom from the WFL's Southern California Sun. League Miami Dolphins, may wind up playing next season in Chicago with a revitalized franchise of the World Foot- ball League, the Chicago Tribune said today. The Tribune said John F. Bassett of Toronto, who controls the contracts of the ex-Dolphin stars, was in Chicago Wednesday night try- ing to sell rights to the trio to the probable new owner of the Chicago Fire. The Tribune said Bassett met secretly with insurance tycoon Gene Pullano, 43, of Park Ridge, III., who holds the option and is said to be close to bidding for the Chicago franchise vacated by Tom Origer. Pullano told the Tribune he is hopeful Csonka, Kiick and Warfield will wind up in Chicago. "They've got to be part of the deal or the WFL can take its football and go play somewhere he said. "I was real optimistic that I would be able to close a deal Wednesday night." "But we couldn't quite get said Pullano, who is trying to put together a syn- dicate which can meet the franchise figure of set hy WFL commissioner Chris Hemmeter. Bassett, owner of Memphis Southmen, paid million for personal service contracts to Csonka, Kiick and Warfield, who have played out their op- tions with Miami of the National Football League. The WFL leadership believes that the three must play either in Chicago or New York, the Tribune said. Hemmeter had announced that the decision whether the WFL would play in 1975 would be made March 15. Pullano told the Tribune that the date has been set back to March 22.

"This club is said Capozzi. "Unless we pass the motion for bids then we must hear a motion of where the directors would find suitable funds to finance the club." Pattison's motion, accepted by a written ballot, was only one of two extraordinary items put before members following the report by presi- dent Wes Munsie. Eight resolutions to restruc- ture the club's organization were tabled by club secretary and director Boyd Ferris. Ferris said consideration of his resolutions would depend upon whether or not the meeting in April accepts a bid for sale of the club. If the club remains a community owned organization he said he would present his resolutions again. During the meeting, members not only criticized the club's financial position but also i ts record on the field. Head coach Eagle Keys apologized for the team's record and added "if the blame has to be placed on someone, it must be placed on me." It has not been determined how the club's sale would be transacted if a bid was to be accepted at the April meeting.
