Sunday, despite the fact the Longhorns dropped a 5-4 overtime verdict to Drumheller ■Falcons, Maxwell gave the rest of the six<team league fair warning. “We’re not going to be c(hi-tent with just spoiling things for other clubs in this loop," he said, “we're going after a playoff spot." Lon^ms, currently in the league basement, split their weekend games. Saturday night they got past Edmonton Mets 6-5.    . “We got off to a alow start this season,” added Maxwell, “but since we turned the corner just before Christmas, we have more than held our own." With 20 games left Maxwell feels his charges can still grab the fourth and last playoff berth. The ‘Horns have been flying at a .750 clip of late and even Sunday's setback, in which the locals let a 4-1 lead escape them, hasn't dampened Maxwell's faith.

The hosts were obviously Lalsers play again Very little was settled at the Alberta Major Baseball League meeting held in Calgary Sunday. Lethbridge Lakers' representatives Kaz Tomomitsu, Reno Lizzi and George Yoshinaka walked away from the meeting with more tentative commitments than anything real concrete. The only concrete fact is that the AMBL will be functioning for another year. At the end of 1973 there was a possibility that the AMBL would fold its operations due to one of the Edmonton franchises dropping out of the league. It was thought that the expenses would be too great for the remaining Edmonton club, in that they would have to make more road trips during the season. The AMBL are also considering a six-team league once again with two clubs from Edmonton and Calgary and one each from Red Deer and Lethbridge. If one of the Edmonton clubs dccides to close down their operations then a franchise may possibly be awarded to Barrhead which the Lakers' management does not favor. Another meeting will be held Feb. 3 to determine the final decision. Meanwhile the AMBL are still without a commissioner. Russ Parker, who quit the post at the end of the season, will definitely not be back.

Pickett combined with Geri Knibbs to win the women's doubles final against Chris Weiler and Trudy Hart of Camrose and then joined forces with Leppard for the mixed doubles only to lose to Gail Wilkes and Cheng of Camrose in the final.
