Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - July 28, 1970, Lethbridge, Alberta 6 THI IETHBRIDGE HERAID Tuesday, July 28, BELTING OUT A TUNE George Chuvalo, left, and George Foreman "work oul" to- gether during luncheon at a New York city restaurant. The two will be belting out a different tune when they meet in a 10-round heavyweight bout at Madison Square Gar- den Aug. 4, CFL Teams Make Releases A Few Surprise Cuts By THE CANADIAN PRESS There were a few surprises as all nine Canadian Footbal League clubs neared the dead- line for declaring their 1970 ros- ters. The 18 Canadians and 14 im- ports that will start the season must be made known to CFL headquarters by midnight to- night. Douglas Paces Win Over Homers In the two scheduled games played last night in the Com- mercial Men's Fastball League the Marquis Hotel edged the Nu-Mode Homes 3-2 and the Contractors gained a 4-1 win over the HCMP. The Marquis Hotel was led by .Brian Dickson on the mound who picked up the win while Eon Wakelin of Nu-Mode suf- fered the loss. Terry Douglas was the top bitter for the Marquis as he stroked out a triple and a double. Mel Johnston and Richard Jankowiak both rapped out a double in the win. For the NuMode Homes Wayne Coates slugged a triple and John Vaselenak stroked a double and a single in a losing cause. In tile second encounter Ron Zasadny gained the mound ver- dict over- Frank Popson. Don Dietzen paced the Con- tractors with a home run and a single while Garth Lamb chipped in with two singles. Zasadny aided his own cause with a double. For the RCMP Bob Singling- er managed a double in a los- ing cause. Action will resume tonight when the Labor Club will host the Contractors at 7 p.m. and Nu-Mode will tangle with the RCMP at Both games will be held at the Dave Elton Fastball Park. Several names familiar to CFL all-star selectors will be least as far as last year's clubs are concerned. Bill Whisler, the giant offen- sive tackle Winnipeg Blue Bombers traded to Toronto Ar- gonauts last week, was cut by Sie Argos Monday and reported bound for British Columbia Lions. Also getting the Argo axe was middle linebacker Allen Ray Al- dridge, considered expendable when c-oach Leo Cahill realigned his personnel. Ottawa Rough Riders, the de- fending Grey Cup champions, cut all-star defensive back Don Sutherin the team's place-kicking duties the last two seasons, and centre Gerry Selinger who joined the Riders in 1956. Earlier Dave ViO, veteran de- fensive end for Hamilton Tiger- Cats and a key performer in the Ticat championship years, was released. Most notable loss in the Mont- real Alouette camp is Jake Scott. Scott moved to the East- ern Football Conference Als in an off-season trade for Tom Cassesse. He has been reported unhappy in the CFL and was waived out of the league. The fleet flanker was said to be headed for a tryout with Miami Dolphins of the National Football League. Out West, Edmonton got rid of two quarterbacks who car- ried the load last year. Among the casualties were quarter- backs Charlie Fulton, voted the Eskimos' most valuable player two years ago, Corey Colehoup and place-kicker Peter Kempf, attempting a comeback after a year of retirement. Thermus Butler, a two-year running back at Edmonton, was also among the list of rejects. Winnipeg Blue Bombers, hop- ing to rejuvenate their lineup after several lacklustre seasons, sent Ted Collins, a five-year veteran at defensive end, to Montreal and Darwin Conner- man to Edmonton. The Bombers cut speedstef 3ave Washington last week al- liough he was their top scorer in four1 pre-season exhibition games.

Earlier vet- erans Bill Kedell, a defensive back, and fullback Ted Woods announced their retirements. The Lions, meanwhile, short on all-star material, cut defen- sive halfback Bill Lasseter, one of the last of their 1964 Grey Cup championship club. Tillotsoii Gains Low Gross Score 37 to Don Tillotson fired a pick up the low gross last evening Jn the Lakeside Golf League. For the low net score Norm Hudson and Roger Gillett both shot a round of 34 to gain the honors. Bastedos led by Don Tillot- son, Nick Onofrychuk, Aki Oshiro and Eric Mokosch won the low team score with a 135. Bastedos also pickeM up eight big points from Flemings en- abling them to jump from a seventh place tie with Parsons to a solo fourth place spot.

But if the official lino from the underground wagering fra- ternity favors Uie Koughies coach Jackie Parker's Lions have a couple of things going for them, as well. One is that artificial turf, an all weather "carpet" that is a bit tricky to handle at first. It wasn't enough to keep the Lions from losing two exhi bition games on the new field but B.C. has added many hours of practice since.

Riuming Back Invited To Camp BOWLING GREEN. Ohio 'AP) Running back George Mordgren was added to the ros- :er of New Orleans Saints of the National Football League Mon- day. The six-foot, 203-pounder was with Calgary Stampeders of the Canadian Football League in 1963 after being Dallas Cowboys. COOPERSTOWN, N.Y Cooperstown basked in the reflected glory of four new members of baseball's Hall of Fame Monday as Lou boudreau, Jesse Haines, Ford Frick and Earle Combs were formally in- ducted in outdoor ceremonies, heavily laced with nostalgia. A hot morning sun kept Ha! of Famers and thousands pi spectators wiping their brows in DO-degree heat while the four new members joined the 114 previous inductees in the mu- seum. Boudreau, Uie youngest mem- ber of the quartet at 53, had been voted into the hall by the veteran baseball writers in their annual election. Frick, 75 Haines, 76, and Combs, 70, were picked by the veterans commit- tee which concerns itself with players not active in the last 2( years and retired executives. Bowie Kuhn, baseball com- missioner, presided at the un- veiling of the plaques of the new members. Family groups accompanied each of the new inductees. Among the large Boudreau party were Denny McLain, the controversial Detroit pitcher, and his wife Sharyn, one of Bou- dreau's daughters. Boudreau singled out Roy Campanella, who sat in the sun in a wheelchair, as an example of the courage and determina- tion necessary to gain member- ship in the hall He also men- tioned present-day players like Ron Santo and Ernie Banks- of Chicago Cubs, Hank Aaron of Atlanta and Pete Rose of Cin- ainnati as potential future mem- bers. STARTED INNOVATION The former shortstop and player-manager of Cleveland In- dians who had a lifetime .295 batting average for 15 years with the Indians and Boston Red Sox and managed four clubs for 1G years probably is best remembered for the Ted Williams shift. Boudreau came up with a special overshift de- signed to stop Williams that has been copied by many present day managers. Boudreau now is a radio announcer in Chicago, covering the Cubs. Haines, who recently under- went an operation, told how he had been bought by St. Louis Cardinals in 1920 for when Branch Rickey, then tire Stampeders One Above Limit (CP) Calgary of the Western CALGARY Stampeders Football Conference cut four Canadians Monday to reduce their rosclr to 33 players, one above the Canadian Football League limit.

Watrin, graduate of Utah Stale, was in his second year with the club. The releases left the required 18 Canadians in camp and 15 imports.
