DAILY v BETTING last year but never played. Meanwhile, Washington Red- skin coach George Allen was re- ported unhappy over the ab- sence of running back Larry Brown, 1972 Player of the Year. Brown's lawyer said the player was "attending to some important personal matters." "I respect Larry so much that I don't want to get into this Allen said. "I expect him to be in. In the two years that I've been here, the coach couldn't ask for more than the way Larry has per- formed. I don't want to injure our relationship because I spect him so much." In Washington, Brown's law- yer, John Perazich, said Brown "expects to join the team "shortly." "Meanwhile, he will work out twice a day." The five-foot-eleven, 195- pound Brown finished the 1972 season with 285 rushes for yaids. He also caught 32 passes for 473 yards and scored 12 touchdowns.

The Lakers held the two-run edge until the Jimmies tied the game with single runs in the third and seventh innings. In both instances, the Jim- mies were threatening to ex- plode but winning pitcher Paul Sullivan came back with some superior pitching to stymie the Jimmies' attack. The Lakers scored their win- ning run in the seventh inning when losing pitcher Malcolm Lynn was called on a balk with Lakers' Roy on third base. Roy had reached thud after cranking a long double and ad- vancing on an error commited by Jimmies' .third baseman Wayne Martin, who found Mar- ty Maxwell's line-shot too hard to handle. The 'Lakers' msurance run came in the eighth frame after Lym relinquished four straight walks.

Jim Scoular, league president, said the action was taken at a director's meeting because of the "failure" of the Lethbridge rancnise holders, 3yd Ball, :arl Trentini and Adrian Uit- >eyers, to comply with the league's constitution. He said the specific charge was that the club failed to post a performance bond as re- quired. "It was regrettable this ac- ion had to be taken but we 'eel it is of the utmost impor- tance that all of the members of the league adhere to the rules that govern the AJHL." Scoular added one new appli- cation for the Lethbridge fran- chise had been received and a league official said it was be- lieved another would be receiv- ed before the July 28 deadline for applications. Lsihbridge finished last in the six-team league last season. The other teams are Calgary Can- ucks, Edmonton Mete, Drumhel- ler Falcons, Bed Deer Rustlers and the Pass Red Devils who play out of Blairmore.

Formation of the new league will not affect the number of franchises, which remains at a maximum of 36.
