"But I felt I would make it. I wouldn't hava gone if I didn't think so." Jones said: "I saw him com ing out of the corner of my ey and when he passed the hal way mark, I knew he was com ing. I heard him yell." Agee called to Jones becaus in a similar steal attempt in last year's playoff against A lanta Braves, Jones didn't se him and drilled a line driv which just missed the startle Agee.

He did walk oaice. And an his last time at bat, he finally man aged to hit the ball-but he hi it with Ms left arm and woun up in the hospital. In spite of him, the White Sox rallied for five runs in the ninth inning to beat the Deroit Tiger 5-2 in tlie firs game, and wit him gone in the ninth of the night-cap, they almost pulled that one out in the ninth before losing 5-4. As a result, they missed an other chance to win a double- header for the first time this season. They have lost nine twinbills and now have spli ihree. The Tigers also missed a big chance to pick up ground on the Baltimore Orioles, who were routed by the Minnesota Twins 1-0 in a battle between division eaders in the American League.

By GARRY ALLISON Herald Staff Writer For the second consecutive evening steer wrestlers stole the show at the Lethbridge Whoop- Up Days rodeo. There are no less than 14 steer wrestlers with times un- der six seconds after two days of rodeoing. Ralph Betz, of Wy- oming, still has the best time, dropping his animal in 4.2 sec- onds on the opening night. Kenny McLean is in second spot with 4.5 seconds. Four cow- boys are bunched with a tune of five seconds flat and are grouped in third position. A disappointing crowd of watched Sonny Ehr, of M i n o t, North Dakota and Dale Hud- dleston of Washington throw their animals in five seconds, the best times of last night's performance. Ehr finished in third spot in last year's world steer wrestling standings. In the saddle bronc event Daryl Kong of Brisbane, Aus- tralia is the only rider to suc- cessfully ride two horses thus far. Kong scored a 66.last night, tying with Chuck Lewis, Brown- ing, Mont, for high mark of the evening. Kong's two-horse total is 131 points. Jim Smith's ride of .77 still stands as the top mark in the saddle bronc riding. Smith rode a Kesler bucking horse named That's All on the opening day to record his high mark. 1 The calf ropers continued to have trouble, turning in some rather slow times. Joe Lawrence, an American roper, saw his time of 12.8 sec- onds, recorded on the first day, stand up through last night's performance, Rodeo veteran Bud Van Cleave of Taber, showed the w_ay last evening as he wrapped his calf in 13.7 seconds. Sonny Ehr's time was 14.9, good enough for the second best limp last night. Malcolm Jones, President of the Canadian Rodeo Cowboys Association, garnered 72 points in the bareback riding event, tops for the night. Bob Kartell, Strathmore, marked a 69 while Deryl Pitts scored 67. Daryl Brown's ride of 76 on the opening night still stands as tile high mark in the bareback event. Lyn Jensen of Leth- bridge has a total score of 136 on two bareback horses. Jerri Duce, Granum, stowed the way in the ladies' barrel raca as she toured the barrels i n a time of 15.8 seconds.

Says: Golf's Million Dollar Winntr PLAY THE COURSE It's a great temptation to try to match your op- ponent's shots rather than playing your own game. We're all guilty of this from time to time and it takes great mental disci- pline to avoid it. But since no two golfers play exactle the same way, cither in method or stra- tegy, it is best to stick to your own devices. There two pitfalls in this regard. One comes up on par-3 holes particu- larly. Where the tempta- tion is to use the same club a normally longer- hitting foe. does. Don't. Play the club you know will do the job. The other concerns strategy. For instance, you might want to "ihowup" a rival'by cutting offmori of t dogleg corner than is sensible. Don't.
