Three plays later on a third and five situation, Nielsen was all alone in the end zone to take Gabler's pass after Lions' de- fender Gary Robinson fell. Lions' coach Jackie Parker used all three quarterbacks, starting with Paul Brothers who guided the club to a 14-0 lead. Williams called the signals through most of the second quarter with Vidal Carlin taking over in the second half. Gabler went most of the. way for the Bombers with back-up Ron Johnson seeing his first ac- tion with less than four minutes remaining.

Thompson, who toured the barrels and the track in Mon- day's fastest time of cme min- ute nine and seven tenths sec- onds, was again the quickest Tuesday as he turned in a time .of The two-day leader and his mates got the job done just in time as the rains, hail and winds came up and made traf- fic sticky to say the least. Thompson, who bested the Lee Price of Calgary and Russ and Eleanor Sedger of Estevan rigs, crossed the finish line in the second heat and all broke loose.

They are: 1. Play tournament golf an- other 10 or 15 years. 2. Score a professional Grand the Masters, British and U.S. Opens and American PGA all in a single year. It's never been done although Ben Hogan won the first three in 1953. 3. Top Bob Jones' record of winning 13 major champion- ships during his career. Jack now has 10.

"I know the odds are tre- mendous, but 1 think it can be done with breaks and luck. Definitely, it takes some luck." In 1953 Hogan won the Mas- ters and followed with the U.S. and British Opens1 in a feat that was comparable to Bob Jones' Grand Slam of 1930 (the British and U.S. Opens, the British and U.S. He chose to skip the PGA championship, then a match play event.

Trevino First Place NEW YORK (AP) Billy Casper moved into contention but Lee Trevino held first place Tuesday in the official money winnings on tte PGA golf tour.

Mead and his taamroates were done in 1.16.3. All three rigs escaped penalty time. The third race saw the start of the rains and it was Les David of Calgary, driving his own rig, who survived any pen- alties to ran. David wasn't the first to cross the finish line but he appeared to he the most cautious and missed penalties. Eresman Bros, of Arrow- wood, driven by Wendall Eres- man, won the race but had five penalty seconds tacked on to a time and' was second. Sundown Hank of Lelhbridge, with driver Hank Markus up, came home in but took seven seconds in penalties. By tlit time the fourth race came about the mud was ankle deep on the horses but the three rigs put on an outstanding per- formance. Hally Walgenbach withstood a spirited effort on the part of Ross David to win in a time of David, driving the For- eign Car of Lethbridge, was three-tenths of a second off Walgenbach's time. Walgen- bach was driving the Orville Berkingshaw rig of Calgary. L. 0.

Salerno and Bil Valentine in 1968 because they were "arrogant" and failed to keep "an even temper." The two said earlier they off! cially were fired by the league for being "never at any one time but Cronii testified at a National Labor Relations Board hearing thai they were "technically fair um- pires." In testimony before board ex- aminer David Davidson, Cronin cited several incidents that he considered justification for dis- missing Salerno and Valentine. Salerno, he said, "was in trou- ble throughout his career." In the case of Valentine, !Ve cited an incident in 1965 when Valentine got into an argument with Sam Mele, manager of the Minnesota Twins, that resultec in Mele being thrown out of the game. Cronin said he believed Mele "took a swing at but, he said. Valentine "antago- nized" the situation by waving a finger in Mele's face. He said he didn't think Valentine "kept his cool. The first essential of an umpire is to walk away front an argument, not antagonize it." Valentine, a major league um- pire for six years, and Salerno, a league umpire for seven years, have filed an unfair labor practice suit against the league, contending they were fired be- cause they were trying to or- ganize a collective bargaining unit for American League um- pires. Cronin, in the sixth day of liearings, said, however, that he lad discussed Valentine and Sa- crno with Carl llubbard, urn- 7irc supervisor, and that al- hough no one suggested to the that tlicy might fired, lubbard went to Oakland, Calif., in 1968 to talk to the two in an effort to "salvage them." Cronin said the decision to fire the two came after Hub- bard reported back to him. "I can't do anything with them. We might just as well replace tlwse two Cronin reported Uubbard said at that lime, ELRICH TIRE SPORT SCORES NATIONAL LEAGUE Pittsburgh Now YorK Chicago Philadelphia St. Louis Montreal w L PCI.
