Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - July 8, 1972, Lethbridge, Alberta ___ July I, 1972 THE LETHBKIDGE HERALD 9 ANDY CAPF ONE THINS, AT LAST SHE'S A5REEDTO Give UP THAT ffcRT-TlME 70S> r-f GOOD 600B- Hl' THEKEj TOAWW CON'TKWOWOW YOU'VE MANAGED SO FAR. WITHOUT'ES, COIN' FULL-TIME; WHAT'AVEVER GOTH IN THE FIFTH T Hall, Crankshaft have their fun CALGARY (CP) A breath- taking bull ride by Wayne Hall of Denton, Tex., and an out- standing time of 3.0 seconds by Merle Muchmore of Helena, Jlont., in Ihe steer wrestling event highlighted rodeo activi- ties Friday at the Calgary Stam- pede. Hall withstood eight seconds on a spinning, twirling bull call- ed Crankshaft for top spot. He is another in the line of relative unknowns who are In control of most events in the early going at the stampede and drew the biggest round of applause in two days along with a marking of 74 from the judges. Next in line In the bull riding was Donnie Gaye of Mesquite, Tex., who chalked up a 67 on a bull called Wild Man. He tied with Jack Kelly for second place thus far in the second go- round. Good marks were hard to come by in the event as either the bulls turned out did not show good bucking ability or they disposed of their riders in Ehort order. World champion Paul Mayo of Fort Worth, Tex., was one of those bucked off. Muichmore threw his hat in the air and let out a loud whoop when his outstanding time was announced. He takes over the first-round lead from Leon Bauerle of Tow, Tex., who re- corded a 4.8 Thursday.

Barry Burke, of Duncan, Okla., who placed second in day money in the steer wrest- ling Thursday, came right back with a second-place finish in the calf roping Friday with a time of 17.3. The premier event of the stampede, the North American saddle bronc riding, suffered from what the critics called an overdose of inferior buckijig stock with such top Canadians as Kenny McLean of Vemon, B.C., and Mel Hyland of Sur- rey, B.C., only being able to bring down marks of 64 anl 58 respectively. A mark of 68 by Larry Jor- dan of Roy, Mont., was good enough to take the day money in the event, with Ken Welch of StevenviUe, Tex., taking second with 68. Rusty Riddle of Fort Worth rode a bronc called One Spot to take day money in that event with 70. He edged out Clyde Vamvor- as of Devol, Okla., for the first place in the first go-round of the event, with Vamvoras marking a 69 Thursday. In the novice bronc riding, Andy Copeland of F o r t St. John, B.C., came up with a mark of 56. He takes the first go-round lead. Two young Calgary brothers got the job done in the boys steer riding. Gerald Chapln and his broth- er, Harold, recorded a 51 and a 50 respectively but still remain behind Don Birrell of Calgary in the first go-round of the event. Robitaille inks pact "BUFFALO, N.Y. (AP) De- fenceman Mike Robitaille signed a multi-year contract with Buffalo Sabres Friday, de- spite an earlier report that he had bolted from the National Hockey League. New York Raiders of the World Hockey Association an- nounced several weeks ago that the 24-year-old had signed with them. Buffalo obtained Robitaille in (he spring of 1971 in a trade with Detroit Hed Wings for goalie Joe Daley. Robilaille played in only 31 games last season, suffering a shoulder injury that required surgery and a knee injury last February that put him out for the remainder of the campaign. K. F.

(CP) Dave Hill, one-time bad boy o! the pro golf tour, credited Cana- dian veteran Al Balding's tutor- ing with helping him over some problem holes Friday. The lesson came to light early in the day and by nightfall bad vaulted the 35-year-old native of Jackson, Midi., into a share of the lead In the Cana- dian Open golf championship with Lou Graham. The two PGA tour veterans were locked at 136, six under par after 36 holes on Cherry Hill Club's par-71 layout heading into today's third round in quest of the pot of gold that goes to the leader Sun- day. They hold a one-stroke lead over Gay Brewer, who was in contention until he bogeyed the 18tli hole, missing a one-foot putt that cost him a share of the lead. Grouped at 138, two strokes back of the leaders and four under par, were Lenny Thomp- son, Charles Sifford, Bobby Mitchell and Bruce Crampton, HENRY BLOWS First-day leader Bunky Henry, who opened with a course record 65, blew to a 74 and shared eighth place at 139 with Tom Sanderson, who had a 73, Sam Adams, Deaoe Beman, Tommy Aaron, Jimmy Dent and Chi Chi Rodriguez. Bob Panasiuk of Windsor, Ont., the top Canadian, shared 140 with Gary player and Phil Rodgers. In all, 28 players broke par Friday beneath sunny skies that started to dry out rain-drenched fairways and greenj. "Al showed me how to get out of the tall grass when we were playing at the Westchester (Mass.) Open a year Hill recalled Friday. "I didn't really make use of it again until today. "It had to do witlh pitching of tall grass. We were discuss- ing it at breakfast this morning, the tall rough they nave here, and suddenly it all came back. "I used the shot three times today and almost holed out three times." BALDING MISSES CUT Balding -wasn't nearly so for- tunate. He had a 79 Friday and a two-round total of 156 to miss the halfway cut of 147 for the low 70 and ties entering the championship flight today and Sunday. Seventy-three players began teeing off at 9 a.m. today. CBC-TV will televise the next two rounds, starting on the 15th hole, 2 p.m. to 4 p.m. MDT today and 1 p.m. to conclusion Sunday. In addition to Panasiuk, the only Canadians to survive the cut from 23 homegrown starters were George Knudson of To- ronto at 143, Bob Cox of Rich- mond, B.C., 145, and veteran Nick Weslock of Burlington. Ont., one of two amateurs in the tourney, at 147. Amateur Jack Lowrey of St. Catharines, Ont., had an 80 Fri- day for 155. Sifford, who has been playing in the Canadian Open every year since 1955, with the excep- tion of last year when he missed the exemption list, had a strong front nine. He birdied three, four, five, six, 10 and 13 before "I three- putted the 14th from 15 feet and the wheels came off." He also bogeyed the 17th to round out at tour-under 67 to go with his opening-day 71. "I played today about as good as I've played this year in any particular said the 48- year-old native o[ Charlotte, N.C. "But I want to say right here, that in all of the Canadian Opens I've been in, this is the best course I've played on. but "Ihere was nolhing fancy in my round." "I hit the ball better from tee to green, but that's no good with a bad score. I came in four shots worse. It's e funny damn game." Starting on the back nine, the El Paso, Tex., pro said his game "started going downhill" after the par-5 lath hole that he had to scramble on to break even. Player, one of the pre-tourna- ment favorites along with Trev- ino and Arnold Palmer who fin- ished the day at 142, credited greenskeepers with keeping the course in top shape "despite weird conditions." "This is by far the best Cana- dian Open course I've played said the doughty little South African who estimates FAILS TO KING Evonne Goolagong of Australia, in action on centre court here Friday during final of the women's singles tennis championship against Mrs. Billie Jean King of America who beat her 6-3, 6-3.

(AP Wirepholo) Hoping to avert future stikes More powe r for Kuhn CHICAGO fCP) Major league baseball owners, hoping to avert future strikes, liberal- ized and streamlined their collective bargaining processes Friday and added to commis- sioner Bowie Kuhn's powers. The owners and their general managers met in a joint meet- ing presided over by Kuhn and presidents Joe Cronin of the American League and Charles Feeney of the National League. Also present was John Gah- erin, the owners' negotiator in labor-management disputes. Junked was the old players relations committee of 10 mem- bers. In its place will a six- man committee which adds to the powers of the league presi- dents. The new committee will con- sist of Cronin and Feeney, one member of (lie executive coun- ui uie CAeLuuvu LULUI- "You have to play real good j ci, c[ ,eague and addilionai to score here, make no mis- take." Sifford wouldn't predict a win- ning score but couldn't resist the chance to say: "1 know tt 1 hit the ball anywhere like I hit it today, I'll win it." Defending champion Lra TTcvino, still in contention at even-par 142 despite a 73 Fri- day, still isn't convinced it will take a low score to win. "I still think a 289 will win this said Ihe 1971 U.S., Canadian and British Opens champion who will fly out Sun- day for Muirhead, Scotland, in defence of his Erilish crown. "There are a lot of six and seven undcrs oul there, but the Rrecns are getting faster and loufihcr." Trevino was pleased with his woods and fairway shots Friday members to be selected by each of the league presidents. Cronin will have either Boh Reynolds of California Angels or Calvin Griffith of Minnesota Twins from Ihe American exec- utive committee and Feeney will have either Walter O'Malley of Los Angeles Dodg- ers or John McHale of Montreal Expos. Kuhn said these selections will be announced within a few days. GAHERIN TO BE ADVISER Gaherin will serve as adviser to the committee and Kuhn will co-ordinate activities of the two major leagues in respect to player relations matters. Kuhn also was given the power to call a major league meeting upon "reasonable no- tice" rather than serve 20 days notice. The owners also modified vot- ing procedures at meetings in- volving player relations. A ma- jority of 13 votes will tie re- quired, at least five of which must be in each league. Kuhn said if the owners had had a similar meeting last sum- mer "it might have contributed to [he solving of problems' which led to last spring's first major league baseball strike. The basic agreement between owners and players expires Dec. 31. Jt deals with eontracls, the reserve clause, maximum pay cuts, trades, expenses, meal money, travel, day-long dnublebeaders, spring training and the release of players. The present owners-players contract which expires March 31 involves the pension fund over which the players went on strike last spring. he'll travel miles this year competing in tournaments in Europe, Australia, New Zea- land, Asia, Japan and North America.

Roberts of New Orleans Saints played undercover agent Friday, but says he's not ready to turn in his coaching whistle for a badge. It was serious business when the head coach of the National Football League team, every word being monitored by nearby FBI agents, met with a man trying to sell him a Los Angeles Ranis' playbook. The man was later identified as Wayne Boswell. The fan in- sisted on buying the coach round after round of drinks. Boswell and former pro quart- erback Karl Swectan, who once played for Toronto Argonauts, wound up being charged by the FBI with interstate transporta- tion of stolen property and fraud by wire. Sweetan. 29, formerly with the Saints and Detroit lions and more recently with the Rams until being cut last year, re- ma 1 n e d jailed today under bond. Boswell, 31, Swee- tan's cousin, was held in lieu of bond. Both are from Dal- las, Tex. GOES TO GRAND JURY U.S. Attorney Gerald Calling- house said a federal grand jury would begin considering the case Monday. The story began when Roberts notified National Football League headquarters in New York on Wednesday immedi- ately after receiving two tele- phone calls in quick succession From a woman who said the was calling from Dallas. The FBI was called In and agents instructed Roberts to set up a meeting with the persons trying to sell the playbook, later determined to be a version of Rams' secrets used Ia4t season. Roberts said he talked with Boswell for about two hours but was never eble to make the "buy" as FBI agents had wanted him to do. "He didn't know how much he was supposed to get for the Roberts said. "He kept having all these folks he said he had to contact. He left one time and came back in a few min- utes. "I had an envelope with bills in It, but h8 Bald this wasn't enough."
