(AP Wirepholo) Will see action at home Sunday No word on Sons' protest '.HE Lethbridge Native Sons officially protested a 13-8 loss to the Calgary Shamrocks in the second game ot the best- of-five Alberta junior lacrosse semi-final playoff series played last Sunday. The Sons are protesting that Calgary brought up and used a juvenile aged player, whose team is currently Involved in another playoff series. It Is explicitly staled In the Canadian Lacrosse Association's constitution that no player can take part in two different play- off series at one time. According to Sons' manager, Don Hall, no word has yet been received from league com- missioner Lee Irvine of Calgary on the issue. "So far Irvine seems to be avoiding the issue and pretend- Ing there is no problem at" said Hall. "We are definitely not opto- mistic in obtaining a just de- cision from Irvine, even though USED MOBILE HOME lO'riS' Completely reconditioned MIDWEST MOBILE HOMES PHONE 3S7-1986 there is no question of the play- er's ineligibility. I guess we'll just have to beat them on the floor." he added. The Sons will get an oppor- tunity to do just that as they travel to Calgary for the third game of the series tonight. The two clubs will return to Lethbridge Sunday and lock- horns in the fourth match at 7 p.m. at the Henderson Ice Centre. Meanwhile the Taber Ebony Hawks, who are presently one game down in their best-of-five Alberta senior lacrosse playoff series, will face the Calgary Eoyals In the second and third games this weekend. Taber, who lost the first en- counter fH last Sunday, will host the Hoyals Saturday night at 9 p.m. and will then visit Calgary for a 5 p.m. game Sunday. Airlines filled MONTREAL (CP) Travel agents say Boston hockey fans are crowding their mail boxes with requests for seats on charter flights to Moscow for the Russia-Canada series. "Sorry, all sold out" Is the stock reply to all askers. Three airlines are flying charter groups to Moscow in September and offered a total ot about seats. Most were sold within a day. A spokesman for McGregor Travel Co. Ltd., a large Mont- real agency, said recent re- quests from Boston alone would fill another 10 aircraft. He said American fans started getting interested when it was an- nounced Bobby Hull might be able to play in Russia. Other agencies too have lengthy wait- ing lists but express little hope that any seats will be made available through last-minute cancellations. Canada has been allotted seals in the Moscow Sports Palace, but about 600 have gone to Canadian embassy and Hockey Canada officials. Travel agents say there Is scant chance of further charter flights being provided, mainly because of a shortage of hotel rooms in Russia. JUNIOR LACROSSE HENDERSON ARENA 4th Game in Best of 5 ALBERTA SEMI-FINAL CALGARY SHAMROCKS LETHBRIDGE NATIVE SONS SUNDAY, JULY 30th, 7 P.M. Adulls Sl.OO 12 and Under fret Students and Pensioners 506 to "unilaterally continue discus- with Patterson. "I think it's obvious (hat we have given Jake a considerable leeway to raise said Sam Berger, owner of Montreal Aloucttes. "Otherwise w h a t would be the point of him talk- ing nt all. Now it's just a ques- tion of waiting lo see what will come of it all." Neither Gaudaur nor Patter- son apparently expect an imme- diate settlement. Negotiations were stalled on financial maters, with players seeking an ?BOO annual increase, or a raise of 5.7 per cent of the average CFL salary This increase included requests for increased training camp benefits, playoff bonuses and more money for players taking part in the national Grey Cup. Patterson said Friday: "I've got several avenues left yet and every one Involves continuing negotiations." 'But the positive part here Is that commissioner Gaudaur has joined the he said. Gaudaur also said Friday he knew of no plans to cancel Mon- day night's regular season league opener in Hamilton be- tween the Tiger-Cats and Sas katchewan Roughriders. There had been published re- ports earlier in the day that the game would be cancelled be- cause of the dispute. "I haven't thought in terms of not even thinking he said. "I'm not going to give up trying to get this thing settled; the players and the clubs aren't giv- ing up. There was no Indication there would be an immediate break in the negotiations, in part because each proposal or counter-pro- posal requires a complicated telephone conference call to the principals on tha respective sides. Decision near on Hull issue OTTAWA (CP) Douglas Fisher, chairman of Hockey Canada, said in a television In terview Thursday night that Hockey Canada will make final decision on August 2 on whether Bobby Hull will be al- lowed to play for Canada in the scheduled Canada-Russia hockey series. Mr. Fisher, appearing on the public affairs program Encoun- ter, said some directors of Hockey Canada were urging that Hull be allowed to play on the team despite his signing a contract to play with Winnipeg Jets of the World Hockey Asso- ciation. The agreement under which National Hockey League play- ers are allowed to play on the team calls for them to have signed contracts with NHL teams. Mr. Fisher defended NHL. president Clarence Campbell, saying he had been invaluable in making arrangements for the series. Mr. Fisher said Hockey Can- ada would review in the next couple of months wlieliier it should continue as an organiza- tion.

The upcoming Old Timers game Sunday is creat- ing quite a stir Plans are to have some 15 or 16 stars of the past take their equipment out of moth- bails and take on the Lethbridge LaJters with half the proceeds going to minor ball No one has said where the other half will go but here's hoping it's for a few suds and some liniment The suds to cool off a certain thirst and the liniment for the aching bones Monday Yours truly and my sidekick Lloyd Yamagishl will be in uniform along with the likes of Bullet Bill Kucheran, Jocko Tarnava, who once threatened Maury Wills for the North American base stealing championship, Hammerin Hec Negrello and Slugger Slavieh, Matt, that is All the fun begins at two o'clock and if all the oldies feel like I do the fun could be over at about I can't for the life of me understand why Canadian Press sent a list of pronounciations of players in the Cana- dian Football League to newspapers All we have to do is spell them correctly T don't envy the broadcasters when they get to Tuufuli Uperesa Get this, it Is pronounced Two-fully Ooper-ayz-uh What ever happened to the everyday names like Carl Yastrzemski? Members of the Boston Bruins of the National Hockey League are certainly making the headlines of late Bobby Orr says he'll play against Russia in the upcoming series if he has to skate on one skate Derek Sanderson, feeling he has dealt Hockey Canada a fatal blow, says he won't play unless Bobby Hull plays Who told Delightful Derek he would make the cut from 35 to IB? He certainly is taking a lot for granted What about Bruins' goalie Gerry Cheevers jumping to Cleveland? I have often wondered how good Cheevers would be without the Boston defence in front of him Now, I guess, I'll get my chance to find out Have you been watching the CFL exhibition games on Cable- vision? It is a nice change, I think, to hear Alex Karras and Jerry Kramer and their comments even if the show does border on the Karras Kramer Comedy Hour The boss, Don Pilling, used to stick his neck out each football season with his weekly fore- casts He always stated he came out ahead at the end of the year That is neither here nor there He did take his chances I'm sure he won't mind if I pick up where he left off So here goes This week, commencing Monday has Saskatchewan at Hamilton in the lid-lifter Monday Tuesday sees B.C. at Edmonton and then Wednesday Saskatchewan is in Ottawa and Winnipeg visits Calgary Thursday Toronto hosts Montreal and finally Hamilton is at B.C. while Calgary pays a return visit to Winnipeg My pick is Saskatchewan over Hamilton, Edmon- ton over B.C., Ottawa vs Saskatchewan? I like the Roughies (how can I go from Ottawa because Saskatchewan has had only two days rest Cal- gary will upend Winnipeg in both meetings, Toronto over Montreal and finally Hamilton will lose to B.C. Jake Milford informs me he knows how to make money this football season Take my predictions nnd bet the exact opposite And did you know they have found a way to come home from a race track with a small fortune? You go to the track with a big fortune. RE-ROOF NOW... Before Leaks Develop Make Simpsonv-Si'ars Your Protective.
