NEW- YORK (AP) - John Wayne won't be holding the fort for Atlanta Falcons next season, but if New Orleans' 17th sense holds up again, Hermann Eben will be a Saint to be reckoned with in the National Football League. The Falcons played it for laughs with a phantom selection and the Saints played a hunch with a last-ditch trade Friday during the 17th and final round of pro football's annual college draft. "Atlanta takes tackle John Wayne of Apache U.," an NFL official announced as the draft session, which bad begun Thursday, ended. WWle the Falcons' "ikeper pick" was duly posted, amid tired titters from the gallery, a New Orleans representative flashed frantic hand signals to his counterpart from Washington Redskins. Minutes later, "John Wayne of Apache U." was exposed as a fraud-and the Saints and Red- TUNE-UP SPECIAL INCLUDES PARTS AND LABOR "**$SIX CYLINDER Rag. 24.30 ..... 1 EIGHT CYLINDER 16.95 22.95 Rtg. 31.00 We will install AuJolite spark plugs, points and condenser 0) Complete check on Sun Scope Engine Analyzer Clean battery posts Check charging system U Condition of engine x* Check PCV valve Condition of distributor t> Condition of spark plug wires Adjust carburetor idle mixture All work guaranteed B.F.

TAYLOR TO SAINTS It sent, tackle Mike Taylor from the Saints to Washington in return for defensive end Leo Carroll and the Redskins' last draft pick. It' was no match for Washington's multi-player, multi-draft choice swap with Los Angeles Rams that had keyed the opening-day proceedings. But it was a big bonus for the Saints, who had good reason to regret the loss of their regular 17(h-round pick in an earlier deal with the Rams. They promptly tapped Eben, a wide receiver from Oklahoma State, as the 428tb of 442 players picked up by the 26 NFL clubs in the 17-round marathon. "We have an affinity for 17th round picks," explained Saints' spokesman Harry Humes. "We had three of them playing for us last year." The NFL champion Baltimore Colts reached out for a pair of college star^-quarterback Rex Kern of Ohio State and running back Bill Burnett of Arkansas-earlier in the day. Kern was among sue Ohio State players picked Friday, giving the Buckeyes a high of 13 for the draft. Houston, Mississippi and Southern California were next with 10 apiece. Gals' event opens Coaldale, Sugar Kings gain wins The Picture Butte Sugar Kings went home happy as they dropped the host Vauxhall Vikings 62-51 in Southwest "B" Boys Basketball action last night. The Sugar Kings held a slim 32-29 lead at half time and added to the total, as the game progressed. Ned Bosnak played an outstanding game for the Kings as he hooped 22 points while Randy Karrens chipped in with 14. For the Vikings Gary Gillespie notched 14 points while Rod Matson and Al McNiven both sunk 10. Meanwhile in Coaldale the Kate Andrews Gaels picked up their second victory of the season as Uiey edged Milk River 59-56. At one time early in the contest the Milk River crew held a 16 point lead but had it cut down to 10 at half time. Twelve rinks remained unbeaten after the first day of the three-day Lethbridge Women's open bonspiel which got under way Friday morning at the Lethbridge Curling Club. Some 48 rinks for various parts of the Southern Alberta are in the running for the honors in the event. Prizes in five events and a grand aggregate are up for grabs. This year's events include the number one T. Eaton, the number two Hoyt's Hardware, the number three Stewart's Ladies Wear, the number four S. S\ Kresge and the number five Hotelmen's. The grand aggregate is sponsored by Anglo Distributors. Four of last year's event winners are back for another crack at the prizes. Pauline Hougen, of Foremost who won the first event as well as the Grand Aggregate, Laura Dancer of Calgary, last year's second event champ, Irene Lindsay of Lethbridge and Caroline Barber also of the host club. Lindsay won the third last year while Barber won out in the fifth event. Play reached the 12's Friday in the number one event with play in all five events slated for today. Meanwhile in Banff, Bill Gross of Lethbridge has earned a berth in A final of the southern Alberta senior men' playdown. Gross met Westy Westmore of Calgary in the A final this morning. In the B section of the double-knockout event Garth Pilling of Lethbridge played Lyle Lebbert of Calgary in one game in the eight's of the divi sion while Cliff Forry was still alive in the B 6ide action. Forry is also from Lethbridge. Most of the products from Victoriaville, Que., reaching the National Hockey League in recent years have made a big bang, but none have made the same impact as Gilbert Perreault. The little village in the Eastern Townships, midway between Montreal and Quebec City, has been exporting hockey sticks to the big leagues in countless numbers. But there's been only one Gilbert Perreault. Last June he was No. 1 in the NHL's amateur draft. Friday night he became No. 1 claimant to rooUe-of-the-year honors, scoring three goals in Buffalo Sabres 4-2 win over California Golden Seals. The flashy 20-year-old centre, with Ms first three-goal night, brought his season goal total to 24. That's tops for first-year performers in the NHL and by far the brightest light in the Sabres' otherwise bleak first season. In the only other game scheduled Friday, goaltender Gump Worsley turned in a solid effort, blocking 28 shots in backstop-ping Minnesota North Stars to a 2-l.win over Vancouver Canucks on the West Coast. WHAT PUNCH ORDERED Perreault, one of the most bally-hooed to arrive on the NHL scene in several years after leading Montreal Junior Canadiens to two straight Memorial Cup national titles, has done everything coach Punch Imlach expected of him last June. Imlach, who also doubles as Buffalo's general manager, laid claim to the youngster in the draft by outfoxing Vancouver's Bud Poile for first pick as both teams started padding their roe tens for their first year in the league. Although at the time it was a toss-up whether Perreault or Dale Tallon, versatile scoring sparkplug for Toronto Marlbo-ros, as to who was the outstanding junior in the country, Imlach made it known early that he preferred Perreault. The victory pulled Buffalo into a sixth-place tie in the East Division with Detroit Red Wings, one point behind Vancouver and 13 points out of fourth place, held by Toronto Maple Leafs. The North Star victory left them in third place in the West, one ahead of Philadelphia Flyers and 11 back of St. Louis Blues. Tonight, the Leafs are at Montreal Canadiens, New York Rangers in Philadelphia, Los Angeles Kings at Detroit and Chicago Black Hawks at Pittsburgh Penguins. THREE IN AFTERNOON Three afternoon games are scheduled for Sunday with St. Louis at Boston against the Bruins, Buffalo visiting Vancouver and California in Minnesota. At night, Chicago entertains Montreal, New York is at home to Los Angeles and Detroit moves Mo Philadelphia. The Leafs, meanwhile, hope to stem their recent slide in which they have won one and lost four on an extended six- game road trip. It was against Canadiens Dec. 9 that they launched their phenomenal rise for the East Division cellar, winning 14 and tying two of 18 games. WILL MEET MAPLE LEAFS - Lcmny McDonald, left and Gary Patkuiki will tee action tonight when the Lethbridge Sugar Kings host Edmonton Maple Leafs In an Alberta Junior Hockey League game at the Arena at 8i30. Kings go after third position Canadiens' coach Al MacNeil has no illusions about the Toronto club, recalling their last meeting. 'I remember the last time we played Leafs the newspapers were full of stories they were dead and we were supposed to be the pall-bearers. I also remember they were very much alive and beat us four to zip." Since that last meeting, however, the Canadiens have added scoring punch in Frank Mahov-lich, the all-time Leaf goal-scorer whom they traded to Detroit three years ago, and Phil Roberto, high-scoring winger from their Montreal Voyageurs farm club who has potted five goals in six games with the parent team. Stingrays host meet Lethbridge YMCA Stingrays Swim Club will play host to a dual swim meet this Sunday. Medicine Hat Alberta Marlin Swim Club will provdie the opposition for the Stingrays in the one-day meet set for the YMCA starting at nine in the morning. Some 55 swimmers will take part in the event. Lethbridge Sugar Kings will see action twice this weekend but only one game is a league encounter. Summaries MINNESOTA 1 VANCOUVER 1 First Period - 1. Minnesota, Golds-worthy 11 (Drouln, Grsnf) 5:33.
