Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - July 29, 1972, Lethbridge, Alberta THI UTHMIDOI HBtAlD St Gaylord iv'ms again What grease? that's finesse By THE CANADIAN PRKSS Gaylord Perry and Dick Allen like to put their own particular trademarks on baseballs They were at it again Friday predictable results Perry's trademark if you Us-, ten to just about anyone else in the American League is grease, petroleum jelly or good old-fash- ioned spit. But Gaylord, grin- ning as he drawls his less-than- convincing dejials, says it's just plain finesse. With Allen theres hardly any deception involved. What he puts on a ball a slight dent, the kind that comes from collid- ing with a bat in mid-swing just prior to rocketing over an out- field fence Perry, the ace of the Cleve- land mound staff, was at it again, Baltimore manager Earl Weaver insisted, as he hurled his way to his 17th victory of the season, tying Mickey Lolich of Detroit as the winningest pitcher in the majors. But Perry did more than just toss a six-hitter. He also bunted across the tie breaking tally, triggering a three-run rally that Glover resigns CLEVELAND (CP-AP) Citing "personal Fred Glover announced Friday he has resigned as director of player personnel for the Crusad- ers of the World Hockey Asso- ciation. Chuck Catto. assistant genera] manager of the Edmonton entry, was named to succeed him. Glover had taken the Crusad- ers post just three weeks ago after coaching the previous four seasons in the National Hockey League with California Golden Seals and Los Angeles Kings. At the same time, the Crusad- ers announced the signing of de- fenceman Paul Shmyr of the Seals More sport on Page 12 MOBILE HOME (NEW) S6'xl4' MIDWEST MOBILE HOMES L.lh. 327-1986 Blairmor. Ph. 565-2653 gave tile Indians their 10-lrmlng 4-1 victory over the Orioles. Allen didn't wait very long to do his thing. He teed off on a Dick Drago pitch in the first in ning for a two-run homer, his third in twc nights and his 25th of the year, taking over the ma- jor-league home run lead and starting the Chicago White Sox on their way to a 6-0 victory over Kansas City. Elsewhere in the American League, Milwaukee defeated Detroit 3-2, Minnesota nipped Oakland 4-3, California edged Texas 3-2 and, in a twinighl doubleheader, Boston beat New York 6-5 before the Yankees re- bound to win the nightcap 3-1. Perry was delighted with his pitching but even more with his bases loaded suicide squeeze bunt that snapped a 1-1 tie and preceded John Brohamer's game-clinching two-run single 'That's three or four times I've really helped myself with the bat this Perry said. "I've always been a pretty fair hitter, I guess, 'cause 1 take pride In my work." And that spitball business? He couldn't have cared less. 'They can come and inspeci me any time they .want" he shrugged. "This sort of thing has been going ou for eighl years When I was In the National League, seven or eigh inspections a game were com mon." He was delighted with his pitching but even more with hii bunt that snapped a 1-1 tie anc preceded John Bromhamer's game-clinching two-run single.

Number of competitors in question Canadian contingent grows MONTREAL (CP) Can- ada's representation at next month's Summer Olympics in Munich, West Germany, will be the biggest this country has ever sent to the Olympic Games. Dick Pound of Montreal, as- sistant chef de mission for the Canadian team, estimated Fri- day that close to 300 people, in- cluding 228 athletes, will make the trip. By comparison, Canadian ath- letes competing at the Summer Games in Mexico City numbered 144. However, the Canadian pic Association still Is not sure of exact numbers when it speaks of competitors. A num- ber of sports federations have yet to hold their trials, and some will not name their teams until close to the departure date third week in August. In addition to the 228 athletes, the medical team to Munich wil Include six doctors, six physio- therapists and one nurse. Maur- ice Allen of Sept-lies Que., wil act as chef de mission, with Pound and Don Goodwin of To- ronto acting as his assistants. TWO CHAPERONES Ken Murray of Montreal wll be the group's office manager and there will be two chap- erones, 20 managers and 22 coaches accompanying the team. So far, the COA has approved 137 athletes to 14 teams. Still to be selected are the swimming team of 30 or more an eight-man wrestling team an equestrian jumping team o five, a rowing squad of dozen or waterpolo, basket ball and volleyball teams. One of the teams that re- ceived COA approval at a six hour meeting Thursday was the 37-athlete track and field contin gent. Since last weekend when the Canadian Track and Field Asso- ciation named 47 to its team there was speculation that then would be a confrontation ovei the difference in figures.

"When we had thought in terms of 30, orig- inally, it was because we felt we'd be fortunate in getting even that many attaining (Olympic) standards. 3ut we were open to hear any solid case for more than that num- ber." But Pound's and the COA's fears were unfounded. The track people slimmed down their entrants to 37 before the meeting and the COA approved. Harvey Pearce, president of the track and field association, said the decision to drop 10 ath- letes was made on "the basis of Trevino, Casper hit the trail LIGONIEH, Pa. (AP) Gibby Gilbert and rookie Lanny Wadkins shared the lead. Ar- nold Palmer and new partner Jack Lewis were still hoping. And Lee Trevino was down the road. That was the situation today going into the third round of the professional golfers as- sociation national team champi- onship. Gilbert and Wadkins were tied for the top spot with former Un- iversity of Houston team-mates Kermit Zarley and Babe His- key. Each team had a 36-hole total of under par in this event in which the scoring is based on the better ball of each team. Palmer who teamed with Jack Nicklaus to win the last two team titles on the Laurel Valley Golf Club course, tabbed the 25-year-old Lewis as his partner when Nicklaus had to withdraw with an infected finger. They just survived the cut at 138, a distant eight strokes off the pace, but agreed: "We're going to come back and win it." Trevino, fresh from liis Brit- ish Open triumph, and partner Ray Floyd failed to qualify for the last 36 holes. They had a best ball 70 for 141, the same total that eliminated Billy Cas- per and Jerry Heard. Both teams were among the pre-tour- ney favorites. The Gilbert-Wadklns and Hls- key-Zarley teams held a one stroke Alabama neighbors Hubert Green and Mac McLendon and Frank Beard and Deane -Reman, tied at 131. Beard and Beman had a 63 and Green-McLendon 66. Gary Player and Bob Eos- burg, 65, and first-round leaders Tommy Aaron and Charles Coody, 70, were next at 132. At 133 were Buddy Allin and Al Geiberger, Bob Lunn and Dave Stockton, and Jerry McGee and Leonard Thompson. Zarley and Hiskey matched the day's best round with a 63. Hiskey, a former Sahara invi- tational champ, scored seven of the team's nine birdies includ- ing an incredible chip-in from about 40 yards over a trap, the ball hitting the flag-stick and dropping straight down into the hole. the philosophy that only the best jeople belong in tha Olympi 3ames."

On a hot afternoon In Phila- lelphia, Carlton hurled a M our-hitter against Chicago Cubs and ran his winning string to a lub record 10 games, erasing he old mark shared by Grover Cleveland Alexander, Robin loberts and Ken Heintzelman. I don't follow records and Carlton said. "I was more concerned about the weather and the wind. I don't like to pitch during the day es- jecially when it's hot. I feel the latter has an advantage during he day. He sees the whole all." Then Stoneman went out In he cool of an early evening in Montreal and tamed St. Louis Cardinals on five hits 3-1, end- ing Gibson's streak at 11 straight victories. "I was pretty relaxed out Stoneman said. "I seem o pitch better in cool weather and today was Ideal pitching weather for me. A lot of other )itchers seem to like the hot weather. I find when it's cooler can keep my strength up bet- ter." SO WHO DOES HE BLAME?

Elsewhere In the National League, Pittsburgh shaded New York Mets 3-1, San Diego upset Cincinnati 3-1 and Atlanta edged San Francisco 4-3 in the opener of a twl-nighter. The nightcap was rained out with the Braves leading 1-0 in the second inning Carlton, 15-6, the National League's leading winner, was locked in a scoreless duel with Chicago's Milt Pappas until Greg Luzinski singled with one out in the ninth and Willie Mon- tanez followed with his ninth home run. 'It was Carlton said of Montanez' home run. "I jumped up as soon as he hit it One thing I didn't want was extra innings. Pappas was tough." Montreal jumped on Gibson for all three runs in the first in- ning on run-scoring hits by Jim Fairey and Ken Singleton and a wild pitch. The St. Louis ace was una vailable after the streak-snap- ping loss and manap.T Red Schoendienst was unable to ex plain his star's numerous early inning difficulties. "It just seems to work ou that he said. "If you don't hit him early, you won' hit him at all. I can't explain it I've never seen another pitche; so consistent this way." Another consistent hurler hac been New York's Tom Seaver who had beaten Pittsburgh eigh times in a row. But he yielded a first-inning run on a walk, hi batter and Manny Sanguillen'i single and Willie Stargel blasted his 21st home run in the fourth.
