_ THE UTHBRIDGE HERAID July 3, Lakers in Calgary this evening Heggedal maintains slim batting lead Judo action It may not look like it, but these two Judoka, ore in- volved in a friendly match. The occasion was the visit of the touring German National Youth teem Saturday at the Lethbridge YMCA. A good crowd was on hand to watch the German team handle the young members of the YMCA Judo Club but when coach Yosh Senda turned things over to his experienced members things changed. The German coach commended the Lethbridge team on its ability. What better way to tighten international good- will than to have the two clubs finish in a draw after 20 matches?

PHONE 328-2853 mr. steam Carpet Cleaning ltd. quarter-final match against Alex Metreveli today carrying a burden on his sturdy shoulders: He's been .made a 3-1 favorite to win the title. And it's all due to Alex Mayer. Mayer, of Wayne, N.J., pulled off the biggest upset of the All- England Tennis tournament Saturday, ousting top-seeded Hie Nastase of Romania. Nas- tase had been the favorite, and his defeat left the field wide open in the men's singles. Connors, ranked third in the United States, has reached the quarter-finals both times he's played at Wimbledon. Last year, he was beaten by Nas- tase. This year, with the fiery Romanian out of the way, the fifth-seeded Connors has his big chance. Drought ends for A. J. Foyt MOUNT POCONO, Pa. (AP) A. J. Foyt won bis first 500- mile championship auto race in six lean years Sunday. He got it at the expense of luckless Roger McCluskey, who has been around the racing scene almost as long as Foyt. McCluskey, a 42-year-old vet- eran from Tucson, Ariz., was leading Foyt comfortably with just over a lap to go in the Scfaaefer 500 at Pocono Inter- national Raceway. Foyt, a cagey Texan who never leaves anything to chance, had stopped for fuel 10 laps earlier. McCluskey had de- cided to stretch his 40-gallon supply to the limit, hoping to ease home for his second 500- mile victory in less than a year. It didn't work that way. As McCluskey's blue and white Eagle beaded out of turn one on the 199th lap of the 200-lap race, it suddenly ran out of gas, moved along slowly for about a hundred yards and came to a stop. He was out of gas. Foyt, winner of three In- dianapolis 500s but without a major triumph in the big-car di- vision of the United States Auto Club since his last victory there in 1967, roared by to win.

Connors gets his ranking this year because of the defection of most of the top stars, including Stan Smith, defending champion John Newcombe, Arthur Ashe and Ken Bosewall, who decided to boycott the tournament in support of Nikki Pilic, the Yu- goslav banned by the Inter- national Lawn Tennis Feder- ation at the request of his na- tional association. In today's quarter-finals, Mayer was to meet Jaergen Fassbendcr of West Germany, No. 8 seed. Mayer is unseeded and one of only two non-seeds to reach the final eight. The other is the 19- year-old Indian. Vijay Amritraj, who plays Kodes in a quarter- final. The other quarter-final is be- tween Britain's Roger Taylor seeded third, and blonde Bjorn Borg, the 17-year-old Swedish whiz kid. The women completed their quarter-finals Monday. Australia's Evonne Goola- gong. the 1971 winner and No. 3 seed this year, breezed past Britain's Virginia Wade 6-3. 6-3.

LANCE CALLS IT QUITS DALLAS (AP) Lance Al- worth, one of professional foot- ball's great receivers, retired Monday from Dallas Cowboys of the National Football League to enter the real estate business in California.

He caught only four touchdown passes in his two years with Dallas. SUED BY YONKERS NEW YORK (AP> Yonkers Racing Corp., Monday sued in Manhattan Supreme Court to compel the New York Off-Track Betting Corp. to pay it at least million annually, starting in 1971, "as just for the track facilities made, available to it." The raceway maintained that it made sub- stantial improvements at its track, that its expenses in 1971 and 1972 exceeded million a year and that its revenues have been cut by OTB operations. OTB has 20 days in which to respond to the action.

M. (Bud) Erickson, executive di- rector of the Ladies Profes- sional Golf Association, still was amazed Monday over the pro debut of Lura Baugh. "It was as fantastic a display of courage as I've ever Erickson said of the California teen-ager's tie for second-place in the Lady Tara Classic Sunday. "The '.pressure on her was he said. "Everyone had just assumed for a year and a half she'd breeze through qualifying school and go on the tour." A breeze it wasn't Tigers' Mickey Hall owns the top earned-run average among active pitchers, a 2.18 mark, and also has a healthy lead in strikeouts with 72 in 45 1-3 inn- ings. Lefthander Tom Chang- non of Calgary Giants remains the official leader in pitching with a 1.90 ERA but he has left the AMBL for a crack at pro- fessional baseball with Cali- fornia Angels.
