The p.m. encounter which will be staged at Renfrew Park will have the top players in the south division facing the best in north division. The Lethbridge Lakers dom- inated the south division all- star squad as they picked up eight spots on the rosf ter. The Giants bolstered, the line- up with six players white the defending champion Calgary Jimmies added five. South All-Star team manag- er, John Elick of the Jimmies, plans to go with John Edwards of Giants behind the plate with Brian Maxwell of Lakers as back-up. Rob Roy of the Lakers earn- ed a starting role at first base while teammate Bob Brown handles the chores at third. Second base will be covered by Dave Morris of the Jimmies while shortstop duties have been given to Giants' Dave Ed- son. Other players chosen to lend infield help include Marty Max- well of the Lakers, Larry Nak- onechny of the Giants and Jim- mies' Steve Powers. The south division outfielders will have Howie Heggedal and Wayne Commodore from the Lakers in left and right fields respectively with Jimmies' Rich Meily in centre. Paul Gallivan will act as back-up to the three fielders. Elick has yet to name his starting pitcher but has six on his staff ready for action. The pitching stalf will consist of Paul Sullivan and Al Fer- chuk of the Lakers, Dave Day and Jim Petersen of the Giants and Jimmies' Juan Eiehelber- ger and Ron Peterson. Calgary Giants' manag e r Poor stock, poor riders CALGARY stock matched by lack-lustre per- formances by the cowboys Thursday left the leaderships in all rodeo events at the Stampede unchanged. The only noteworthy per- formances were logged by Mel Hyland, world saddle bronc Brad Cox trails by four strokes EDMONTON (CP) Dave Parker of Edmonton, trying to parlay a win in the Alberta junior golf championship into a golf scholarship to Stanford University, held a one-shot lead Thursday after 36 holes of the 54-hoIe provincial event. The 17-year-old Parker, one of the city's best players in local events but never before e threat in provincial tourna- ments, shot a three-over-par 74 Thursday for a two-round ag- gregate of ISO. He had a one-shot lead on Barry Goring of Red Deer, a member of the provincial B team last year, and two shots on Doug Lecuyer of Edmon- ton. Cowing bogied the final three holes for 74 and 151, while tte Lecuyer, the Edmonton junior champ, sank a four-footer on the 18th for a birdie and a 73. Bob Haldane of Red Deer, a member of the provincial A team two years ago as a 15 year-old, Roy Abbenbroek of Calgary and Brad Cox of Leth- bridge were at 154. Haldane shot a 73 to tie Lecuyer for the best round of the day. champion from Surrey, B.C., in the bareback bronc event and C. R. Jones of Lakeside, Calif., in the steer wrestling. Hyland's score of 71 moved him into second place behind Ace Berry of Modesto, Calif., who had a 72 ride Tuesday. Jones came within an ace of overhauling steer wrestling, second-go-round leader, Tom Elliot of Colorado Springs, Colo., with a time of 4.8 sec- onds, one-tenth of a second off the pace. His time was good enough for second. A 68 by Peter Gay of Mes- quite, Tex., was the day's best score in bull riding, but not good enough to put him in the top 10 standing. Dale Rose of Medicine Hat still holds the lead in the bull riding event with his 79 ride Monday followed by Bob Rob- ertson of Yellowgrass, Sask., who trails by three points. First and second place in the saddle bronc event remains with the Smith Brothers of Cody, Wyo. The top saddle bronc mark Thursday was a 67 scored by Doug Brown of Silverton, Ore., and Peter Bruised Head of Standoff, Alta. Roy Burk of Duncan, Okla., kept his lead in the calf roping second-go-round with a 11.2 scored Tuesday. Best time Thursday was re- corded by Clyde Bullard of Commanche, Okla., who had a 13.3 second time. Meanwhile the Stampede chuckwagob championships appear to have boiled down to a three-wagon affair after completion of the eighth day of competition Thursday. The Lyte Adam outfit of Grande Prairie, continued to set the pace with two days of racing remaining. WHAT IS AKAI?

Clemente's airplane a flying death-trap WASHINGTON (AP) The plane that carried baseball star Roberto Clemente to his death last New Year's Eve was over- loaded, had two bad engines and had not been flown in four months, the National Trans- portation Safety Board said to- day. The flight engineer was un- qualified for his position and the co-pilot had a total of six hours in the type of plane being flown, the board added. Clemente, an all-star out- fielder for Pittsburgh Pirates, and four others died when the f o u r-engine DC-7 crashed shortly after takeoff from Puerto Rico on a mercy flight to Managua, Nicaragua. The plane, owned by a Puerto Rico charter operator, was loaded with relief supplies for survi- vors of the Managua earth- quake. Clemente, a native of Puerto Rico, had agreed to head up the relief effort after be got word of the Dec. 23 disaster. His organ- ization bad collected in cash and tons of food, clothing and medicine. 2 TONS TOO HEAVY The safety board said its in- vestigation of the accident showed: four-engined, propeller- driven plane was pounds overweight when it took off; was extensive inter- nal failure in the inboard left engine during the takeoff. The board said the failure was traced to previous engine dam- age cause during a ground acci- dent; inboard right engine was so badly worn that it could not develop full power; aircraft had not been flown in approximately four months; flight engineer was a mechanic unqualified for Ms po- sition in the crew. The co-pilot had six hours of DC-7 flight time. The board said the previous accident that damaged the left engine occurred on Dec. 2 when the plane ran into a drainage ditch during taxiing. It said the left and right inboard engine propellers struck concrete and stopped abruptly. The first attempt of the air- plane to take off was aborted, the board said, the plane was returned to its ramp for -work on both right engines. It said the plane attempted a later. The plane took feet to get off the ground and gained altitude slowly before turning left to head back toward the air- port. It continued to lose altitude during the turn and crashed into the ocean, about 1% miles from San Juan's luxury hotels. The board said an eyewitness told Clemente the plane was im- properly loaded and unsafe but that Clemente replied be didn't know anything about this. "Mr. Clemente presumed the flight was being conducted safely. This was under- standable. But faith in a safe operation is not enough." The board said persons char- tering an airplane should deter- mine themselves the air- worthiness of the craft and the operational ability of the pilot The 38-year-old Clemente was one of 11 baseball players to get hits during his career. He compiled a lifetime batting av- erage of over .300 and won four National League batting titles.
