It was on that day that long- shots Now Henry in the first and Silver Simon in the second combined for a pay- off. Only one ticket holder had the combination of 7-4. According to track officials the king-size payoff is a record for the Lethbridge track. It is definitely a record for Whoop- Up Days race meets, as the an- nual event started just last vear during the Whoop-Up bays celebrations. Thorough- bred racing has been an annual event in the fall for 10 years. The lucky ticket holder, not from Lethbridge apparently, remains unknown.

The latest suit, filed Wednes- day, is a million action by former Eagles' lineman Don Chuy. Chuy has charged the Eagles with breach of contract for re- fusing to compensate him for the 1S70 and 1971 seasons. The one-time 225-potmd guard, who had signed a three-year standard player contract upon coming to the Eagles in the spring of 1969, missed both sea- sons because of a disability which ended his playing career. In the suit, Chuy's attorney Charles F. Quinn, contended the disability from a left shoulder injury he suffered against the New York Giants on Nov. The Eagles, however, dis- claim any obligation to Chuy. Eagles general mnager Pete Retzlaff maintained Chuy's car- eer was shortened by a blooc condition totally unrelated football. Quinn contends Chuy is enti- tled to full pay for the duration of the contract, which called for a year. He said the club owes Chuy Be is demanding the mil- lion in damages.
