Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - July 16, 1970, Lethbridge, Alberta 8 THE LETHBRIDGE HERALD Thursday, July 16, 1970------------------------------------------------- First Time Games Held In Ancient Land Finest In Commonwealth Gather Today EDINBURGH (CP) The Commonwealth called its family of elite athletes together today for the first time in an ancient land where Scots have been sports fanatics for hundreds of years. Princo Philip was scheduled to open the first Commonwealth Games on Scottish soil amid elaborate 'Ceremonies starting at 8 a.m. 1IST. Nearly athletes from 42 countries, the biggest Common- wealth gathering in history, were to inarch into Meadow- brook Stadium to hear Prince Philip read the Queen's mes- sage of goodwill to her family.

Hitters Having Their Way Now Grins And Groans Change Hands By THE ASSOCIATED PHESS Only two years ago Utters were nroaning loudly and pitch- ers smiling quietly as the men on the mound dominated the game. Now who's grinning and who's groaning? Whether it was becaoise of the towering of the pitching mound, a shortening of the strike zone, expansion, the new artificial fields or a livening of the base- ball, 1970 has become the year of fee least as the second half of the season began today. In 1968, there were only six .SCO hitters in the major leagues one in the American just home runs, bringing a cry that low- run games were turning off the fans. Things picked up last year when ttuere were 18 .300 hitters and more than homers, and by the first half of this sea- son, bats were booming more than ever. And the way Miters like Pete Rose of Cincinnati Reds and Carl Yastrzemski of Boston Red Sox talked at the all-star game Tuesday after playing on Ci cinnati's new.Astroturf, the se ond half of the season will brin more of the same. As play resinned today wi Minor Ball In Norcrest little League ac- tion the Braves shutout the Cubs 12-0. Dave Miskulin was three walks from pitching a perfect game as he registered 12 strike outs in the six inning contest. Ricky Lafournie was not as lot and had to settle with the loss. Earl Ingarfield of the Braves went four for four up at the plate rapping out two doubles and like number of singles. .WadeBogusky chipped in with a home run to gam victory. The Senators rallied from 7-1 deficit Wednesday an edged the Dodgers 10-9 in Ser ior Little League action. Randy Stevens earned t victory for the Senators whi Jerry Areshenko suffered t] loss.

Cincimnati, keeping in time with the times, is the tap hitting team in the majors with 123 home runs and a team batting average of about .277. Those fig- ures, along with improved pitch- tag over last year, have made the Reds the only runaway lead- ers going into the last half of July. The Reds have a 10-game lead at the aH-ster break in the Na- tional League West, a division that had a tight four-team race last season when the Reds fin- ished fourth. The biggest surprise in the American League has been Cali- fornia Angels, who were in last place, 22 games back, at this time last season in tie West. The Angels now are second to Minnesota, five games behind. Cincinnati's pitching staff has been perhaps the biggest sur- prise of all. The Reds added Wayne Simpson and Jim VIcGIothlin and Gary Nolan re- ;urned from arm trouble tp join icldover Jim Merritt'. All four lave a chainee at 20 victories. team has ever had four 20- ;ame winners in one season. Merritt has 14, Simpson 13 waited to be released. The RAF planned a flypast by 12 jets over the sports centre. The chilly and windy Scottish weather brought a plea from Arthur Tunstall, general mana- ger of the Australian team, to organizers not to make the ath- letes stand about at the ceremo- nies for too long. "We want to be on guard against chills and muscle trou- that's what could well happen in weather conditions which our people are just not accustomed Turnstall said. The wind has been so gusty that in practice hurdlers have found the hurdles blowing over and one pole vaulter, Mike Bull of England, said: "I was scared the wind would carry me away from the land- ing pit." LIKES BAD WEATHER But one Canadian track ex- pert said bad weather could be a blessing in disguise for at least one member of the team, distance runner Jerome Dray- ton of Toronto, who changed his name from Paul Buniak in 1969. Lloyd Swindells of Vancouver, track and field coach who is here as an observer, admits Drayton is somewhat of a ques- tion mark. "But if this weather holds, he could win the metres or the marathon, or maybe both. Drayton loves to run in the cold and the wind and the rain. In the metres Saturday, Drayton will be up against the best in the world, probably both Kipchoge Keino of Kenya and Ron Clarke of Australia. Keino, a Nairobi police inspector, has been on top for nine years, and this will be his last chance to make his suprem- acy over Clarke complete. Clarke, 33, has set 17 world records during his career but never won an Olympic or Com- monwealth Games gold medal. He is confident he mil win here and then retire as planned. "I would not compete in Edin- burgh unless I felt I could he said. Keino beat Clarke four years ago at Kingston, whining both VER LOOKIN A BIT DOWN IN THE -WHAT1?

In the 1968 Olympics, Keino captured the gold in the metres and his countryman, Naftali Temu, won the metres. MEETS HILL AGAIN In the marathon next Thurs- day, Drayton will face Dave Hill of England, who won the Boston marathon last April. In that race, Drayton dropped out at the 12-mile mark. Swindells figures that if Can- ada is "really lucky" it could come out of the Games with three or four .gold medals in track and field. He said Can- ada's best bets for gold are high jumper Debbie Brill of Haney, B.C., javelin specialist Judy Dahlgren of Vancouver, Dave Steen of Toronto in the shot put SAO PAULO, Brazil (Re ters) Zappa, the Ar gentina arbiter-general for th inter-zonal Davis Cup playof for North and South Americ was expected to arrive hei today to referee a series of di ferences before play begins this weekend between Canada an Brazil. The most serious is the a leged refusal of the Canadia team to play on indoor courts rain prevents play at Pacxemb Stadium. When Brazil and Colomta played the South America qualifying games here las month, the finals were held o the Pinheiros club indoor cour because of steady rain. But tournament sources sa Laurie Strong of Toronto, cap tain of the Canadian team, sists oil sticking to the regula tions which call for outdoor, un covered courts in natural day light. The sources said Strong ha at first also insisted on not pu ting Brazilian balls into play But he bowed to the regulations which stipulated that the choic of balls is up to the host country The Brazilians would like, an have suggested, that the drai be made today but the Canadi and McGlcMn and Nolan 11 each, joining nine oilier Na- ional League pitchers who have 0 or more victories.

Baltimore in ot Toronto in the snot put George Puce, also of To- ronto, in the discus. Torontonians Bruce Simpson and Bob Raftis are among the favorites in the pole vault and Jenny Meldrum has an outside chance in the five-event pen- tathlon. In 1966, only three of Can- ada's 14 gold medals were in track and Jerome of Vancouver in the 100 yards, Steen in the shot put and Abi- gail Hoffman of Toronto in the 880 yards. Only Steen is here for a return engagement. Canada was third in the team standings four years ago. Eng- land and Australia were one- two, and the two countries are expected to maintain the domi- nance they have held since the first Games in Hamilton, Qnt., 40 years ago. ans were holding out for Frida because the rules say the dra' should take place 24 hours be- fore the matches. WANT PUBLICITY Brazil's reason for seeking an earlier draw was to giv greater publicity to the tourna ment. One source said Canada's No 1 player, Mike Belldn, 25, o Montreal, was suffering pains the calf of one leg. Brazil's Thomas Koch looket good on the courts Wednesdaj after1 an enforced absence while he recuperated from a bout with hepatitis. John Sharpe, from Toronto, pleased tennis fans with his form as he trained at the Pin- heiros Quo. Fans were looking forward to a singles match between Sharpe and Koch which they sale should produce exciting tennis because of the similarity oi their techniques.

Santoni Fires Two-Hitter In the Commercial Men's Fastball League two games where played at the Dave Elton Fastball Park last evening. Both the Dallas Cowboys and the M and K Generals posted easy victories over their oppo- nents. Pallas led things off in the first game whipping out the Labor Club 11-2. George Santoni picked up the win throwing the third strike past 10 batters and allowing only two to connect. Tom Yip could not get going and had to settle with the loss. For the Cowboys, Larry Tratch pounded a home run and a single while Jack Fleming aided the cause with a home run.
