YOUR HOLIDAY DREAMS COME TRUE 1972 VENTURA WAGON E-200 Umpire culls game in Calgary Lakers' encounter cut short CALGARY (Special) Not that Lethbridge Lakers would have gotten to young G o r d Vejprava Tuesday night irt Al- berta Major Baseball League action but hecklers didn't give them a chance. Lakers And Calgary Giants were nose to nose in a 3-0, for the Giants, ball game when umpire Jim Galhcrcole halted proceedings in the eight inning. Subjected to constant heck- ling Gatliercole ejected one Laker supporter from I he dug- out and then halted the game when the disturbance continu- ed from the stands. Until the time game was call- ed the Lakers had been unable to figure the slants of left- hander Vcjprava who gave up only six hits in the eight Inn- ings. Ottawa next port of call Eagleson returns home TORONTO (CP) Alan Ea- gleson, executive director of the National Hockey League Play- ers Association, returned from an eight-day visit to Russia and Sweden Thursday night and said Ottawa would be his next port of call. "I gather there is some con- cern at the government level over the Prague said Eagleson, returning with other Team Canada officials after making arrangements for the Russia-Canada hockey series in September. Team Canada agreed to play two exhibition games in Sweden before proceeding to Moscow for the second half of the eiglit- game series but Russian pro- tests resulted in cancellation of a similar game in Czechoslova- kia. Eagleson said he had been asked to discuss the situation in Ottawa with A. E. Ritchie, un- dersecretary of state for exter- nal affairs, and Hobert Ford, Canadian ambassador to Mos- ccw. He said the team will arrive in Stockholm Sept. 13 and play UK Swedish national team Sat- urday and Sunday, Sept. 16 and leaving for Moscow three days later. PRESSURE UNWISE The Toronto lawyer said he was unfamiliar with the latest developments in the Bobby Hull situation but stilt feels it would be unwise to press for his inclu- sion in the team. He said a number of players are concerned at the possible ramifications if Hull is allowed to play despite his departure from Chicago Black Hawks of the NHL to sign a contract with Winnipeg Jets of the World Hockey Association. "At least eight players have told me that unless they get a guarantee in writing from their clubs that their pay will go on despite injuries, they won't turn up." It was at the players' urging that the agreement setting up the team stipulated that they CFL rookie award now available MONTREAL (CP) The Ca- nadian Football League's rookie of the year will be honored for the first time this season in the annual S c h e n 1 e y football awards, a company spokesman said Tuesday.

It was this requirement which barred Hull and others signing with WHA clubs. "If, because of Hull, the NHL backs away and says, 'Hence- forth you're on your that wouldn't be a good Ea- gleson said.

The only lime the Lakers threatened was in the fiflh inn- ing. Bandy Maxwell and Jeff DeRecat were stntioncd at sec- ond and third respectively with only one out. Vejprava, how ever, bore down on Doug Yorgason and Bruce and escaped unharmed. The victory was a key one in the Giants' drive to AMBL summit.

Says: correct Curing Ihe Duck Hook Often those who have cured a slice fall into the opposite error, duck- hooking. The ball lakes off low and then curves wickedly to the left. Understanding why this, happens will help anyone cure this fault. The hook is caused when the cluWacc moves on a definite inside-out swing path through the ball with the clubface point- ing at the proposed tar- get at impact. This is often partly caused by a hook grip, with the thumb-forefin- ger V pointing at the right hip instead of the right shoulder. Check your grip, then try to swing the clubhead on out to the target after im- pact, not to its right, and you'll cure your hook. 1972 NAT'l. NfWi. Syn.
