By TOE ASSOCIATED PRESS The rest of the nation may be Into the "dry but as far us manager Chuck Tanner of Chicago White Sox is concerned, Gaylord Perry of Cleveland In- dians still digs greasy kid stuff. Perry hurled a four-hitter Monday night for his 14th vic- tory of the season, a 2-1 triumph over the White Sox which Tan- ner protested. In other American games. Kansas City League Royals edged Baltimore Orioles 3-2, De- troit Tigers defeated Texas Rangers fl-3, Minnesota Twins blitzed Milwaukee Brewers 8-1, California Angels nipped New York Yankees 4-3 and Boston Hed Sox beat Oakland Athletics 4-2. Perry, who tied Detroit's Mickey Lolich as the winningest pitcher in the majors this sea- a little help from Mickey's cousin, Ron has never admitted to putting any- thing on the baseball except spin. At one time or another, P.n awful lot of batters have said Perry's pitches have more spit than some other illegal substance. Tanner Insists it's grease. And he was so sure of it Monday night that, after VA In nings, he told plalfi umpire Bi" Haller he was playing the gam under protest. "That's Tanner's privilege t protest if he wants, and that' what I told him on the Haller explained. "It's a matte of in my judg ment, Perry wasn't doing any tliing illegal."

'I'm U'ke a he's fond of saying. "Every day when I wake up it's a brand new day and a brand new world." But he aiso is a hard-headed businesman, a homespun phi- losopher, a humanitarian and a natural humorist. Trevino, 32, here to defend his British Open crown, says of his future: "Im going to play as much as I can, as hard as I can, win oil I can by the time I'm 40. Then I'm going to go home to El Paso (Tex.) and just sit and count my money." "I ain't gonna be out here trying to hack it around and beat the hungry he adds. "And I sure as hell ain't gonna be a pro at some club somewhere and stand around sweating and saying 'yes, Mr. Moneybags, and 'No, Mrs. Fa- and listen to them yell. "That's wliy I'm piling it up while 1 can. That's why I play so many Lournamcnts." Trevino said it is easy to remember "I was a fat little Mexican trying lo hustle bets and didn't have two bucks to cover the bet" six years ago. 3 great 100-cc Hondas for the guy or gal who craves a "born-free" hind of summer fun!

It's having a ?2 bet with a tough sharpie and not having the money to cover it and needing to make a 15-foot putt to win. Now that Is pres- sure. "But this game of golf has changed all that for me. I want to try to put something hack in the game. The spon- sors want me to play in their tournaments because I'm good for the gate. I tliink that I owe them something. They're the people putting up the money. So I'll play as much as I can." Trevino is a product of Uic Mexican-American slums of Dallas, grandson of a grave- digger, a former U.S. Marine, a Grade 7 dropout who didn't know his father, and a former ossistant on a de- sert driving range.

His name appeal's on golf clubs and golf bags and an instruction strip in news- papers. He has a huge apartment complex in El Paso, is build- ing a 36-hole golf course, is involved in at least three land developments, one of which may be worth more than ?10 million. And he is well known for giving away a portion of his winning purses to charitable organizations. Not so well known Is liis work to establish a children's cancer treatment and re- search hospital in El Paso. "We've stilt got a long ways to go, but we hope to have this hospital so that if any kid in West Texas or New Mexico has cancer, he can come here nnd get the. besl treatment in the world and, if he csn'l af- ford it. it won't cost, him."

"I've been facing Perry for eight or nine years he said, "and that is all he ever throws me. Nobody ever stops him, so what can you do aboul it except try to hit the ball."

The Lakers' board of direc- tors relieved Vaselenak of his coaching duties right after the Lakera suffered two losses to the Edmonton Tigers on the weekend. Saturday night the Lalters were stopped 10-8 white Sunday afternoon they were thumped 16-3. The Lakers started off strong IP their initial season In the AMBL winning six consecutive victories before tasting defeat. Since then, the Lakers have seemed to have lost their power and earned only two decisions in their last 15 encounters. Sporting an 8-13 record, the Lakers rest in fifth place in SULLY SAYS i -By Pal Sullivan IS E LONG awaited announcement on who will play for Canada against Russia will come Wednesday. The word out of Toronto today was that coach Harry Sinden will hold a news conference Wednes- day to announce names of players he has selected for Team Canada. Hockey Canada made the announcement today. Team Canada is the name of the team which will lace the Russians four times in Canada, once each in Montreal, Toronto Winnipeg and Vancouver. Sinden, along with assistant coach John Fergu- son, will choose some 35 names to start training with the club. Only Canadian-bom players are eligible for the series that will also see four games played in Moscow. Isn't it always the way? If one person does some- thing to upstage his partner the other does his best to return the favor. Some two weeks ago Larry Plante, of Medicine Hal, got a chance to plug the Gas City Hockey School on the Nationally televised Sportsbeat '72 program. Plante, a performer in his own right, took full ad- vantage of the situation and the Gas City School is now known far and wide as being run by a glass- chewing ex-athlete with strong teeth and sharp, quick wit. When I got wind of the story about Plante and was certain I would have a visitor. I wasn't long waiting. Monday morning, bright and early I had a visit from buddy Gregg Pilling. Pilling, with Plante's help, started the Gas City School last year. But Pilling also has a school in Lethbridge known as the Windy City Hockey School. Well, Pilling had no chance to get equal time on Sportsbeat for his Windy City School so he did the next best thing. He got it in Sully Says.

Division AH kidding aside though, the Windy City Hockey School and the Gas City Hockey School provide southern Alberta boys with an excellent opportunity to receive professional training from National Hockey League, American Hockey League and stars of other professional hockey leagues right in their own back yard. The Windy City School, under the direction of Stan Maxwell and Pilling, promises to be big with seven professionals on hand for instruction in the world's fastest sport. Four forwards, two defencemen and a goalie will instruct the two, one-week schools. The first week is set for August 6-12 and the second 13-19. All the ac- tion takes place at Henderson Lake Ice Centre one of the reasons why Pilling feels the school will be even bigger and belter than last year. "The boys, after they are finished with their part of the daily routine at the school can go swim- ming or play said Pilling. "Everything is right there for them at Henderson." The school's outline lias two separate seven-day sessions which will be held at Henderson. Each boy receives hours of ice time each day wilh the in- structors. A game will be played to wind up each boys' class on the seventh day. To supplement their hockey, the boys will go through a daily one hour physical education pro- gram period. Also training films and in-depth chalk talks will be held with each class. if Instructors Ihis year include Ed Dyck, a net- minder with the Vancouver Canucks. Jim Neilson of the Xew York Rangers and Wayne Muloin of the Cleveland Barons, both rtefencomen. The forwards are Darryl Knibbs of the Muskegon Mohawks. Eddie Joyai of the Philadelphia Fivers. Ross Lons- beiTv of Ihe Flyers and Brian f arlin of the Spring- field Kinas. The Winri.v City Hockey School is designed lo pro- vide with a sound knowledge of the funda- mentals of Ihe game of hockey. Special drills will show students how to skale, shoot, pass and check properly. There is a guarantee thai coes with the school. "We guarantee that regardless of any previous hockey experience, each and every boy will receive personal coaching attention from some of the most oulslaiiding players nnd instructors in HIP same to- day." The piiiircmlee is endorsed by liolh Pilling nnd Maxwell.

The board of directors felt a coaching change could hope- fully bring the 'Lasers back into contention, bu I this re- mains to be seen. Vaselenak, who led the LeUi- bridge Junior Miners lo the Alberta championship title and Canadian championships last year, wasn't too upset when asked for his resignation. "Bringing baseball back lo Lethbridge is our main con- cern and one's personal gains shouldn't be said Vaselenak. According to Vaselenak, the Lakers are a promising ball club, hut the players are not in shape "The kids have all the ability in the world, but aren't apply- ing themselves." he said. ''I just hope they'll work hard for Hector and start pro- he acitlsd. The players might have no choice with Negrello at the When Negrello's name pops up in a conversation, many peo- ple refer back to his great hock- ey ability during the era of the Lethbridge Maple Leats. What many people don't rea- lize, is that, Negrello was also a hard nosed third baseman and pitcher for the Lethbridge Miners, who toiled in the de- funct Western Canada Baseball League in the 40s. "i can still rememberd vivid- ly how Hector used to bring lite to the Miners by screaming and yelling at his reminisced Frier. "He'll b3 the same way with these kids, so they'd better stay in he added. Negrcllo will get his first chance to put the Lakers back on the winning irail as they host the second place Calgary Giants Thursday night. Game lime is set. for 6 pm, at the Henderson ball park.
