Lakers, in their initial season in tlie Alberta Major Baseball League, ran their record to six slralght wins before being trounced 14-4 by Edmonton Ti- gers Sunday in the capital city. "It was .1 good one to get out of our E y s I e added Frier. The pressure was beginnbig to build and what better way to ease I lie pressure than to have the air let out of you. Lakers are at home tonight in a league encounter with the Calgary Giants. The gams set for Henderson Park at eight o'clock. Wednesday night tne Lakers meet Calgary Jimmies for the first time. Jimmies, after an idle weekend, lead the league with a 5-0 record. First things first, however. The Giants are not total strang- ers to Henderson Park. The same club was here last Tues- day and locked horns with the Lakers In an extra-Inning affair that the locals won 4-3 on some superb base-running by Howie Heggedal and a blemish on the othwenvise flawless perform- ance by Calgary shortstop Brian Hogan. A bad throw by Hogan allowed Heggedal to scamper home with the winning run last week. The Lakers' pitching staff saw plenty of action over the weekend. As a result It Is ex- pected that Vaselenak will go with southpaw Rod Taylor. Taylor was unable to make the trip north on the weekend and so will put his 3-0 mark on the line tonight. According to Vaselenak the club is healthy for tonight's encounter and eager to get back on the winning track. Lakers next home action will be tills Sunday when the Eslca Ramblers of the Northern Sas- katchewan League pay a visit. The Alberta teams play an inter locking schedule with teams from Saskatchewan.

MONTREAL CCP) Punch Imlach, general manager ol Buffalo Sabres, enlivened an otherwise dull National Hockey League intra-league draft Mon- day, by picking up veteran de- fenceman Tim Horton from Pittsburgh Penguins. The move, which cost the iabres the (U.S.) draft jrice, came as a surprise be- cause Horton, a 42-year-old vet- of 20 NHL seasons, has an- nounced plans to retire. It took the 14 existing clubs only 25 minutes to complete tbe .elections. Each team, was al- owed to lose only one player its list. When a claim was made, the claiming club re- moved a player from, its pro- :ected list to make room for its new player. The losing club had the option of requesting the transfer o hat player to its roster for or accepting the "It's a said Imlacl of his move. "But it's a gooc jambte. I must think so or 1 wouldn't have drafted him. He's the first NHL defence- man thai Buffalo has ever had This is the first guy we've had tot has played 100 games in the major leagues. We didn' lose anything. I think he will help us. "Horton is something lik Johnny Bower, he's old in age but he has a young body. I'v got the rink for him to play in Our small rink should help him It will be harder to get away from him there. "Arid maybe he'd like to com back and get even for the thing I did to him when I had liim a Toronto." Last season, Horton played 1 44 games for the Penguins missing part of the season wit broken ankle. He went t Pittsburgh last season afte playing with Toronto Mapl Leafs and New York Rangers. CANUCKS ACTIVE Vancouver Canucks were ac live in the draft taking two for winger Don Tanna hill from the Boston Bruins' g a n i z a t i o n and Gerry O'Flaherty from the Leafs chain. The Canucks dropped Ro who was reported to hav signed with the new Worl Hockey Association, and Jin Niekamp. Both the Leafs an the Bruins accepted the dra price rather tiiau take the pla; ers. Los Angeles Kings also took pair of Lon from Chicago Black Hawks an Doug Volmar from Detroit Ret Wings. The Kings dropped Bi Orban, who was snapped up b the Hawks and then droppe Lucien Grenier, but the Wing decided to pass on him. In a strange move, Toroni grabbed centre Larry Plea from Montreal Canadiens dropped defenceman Brad Se wood. Both Pleau and Selwooi were signed recently by Ne England Whalers of the WIM To further complicate matter. Montreal agreed to take Se wood. Another move saw the Bruins leave Johnny McKcnzie and Fred Stanfield unprotected.

Alan Ealeson seeking parity DRYDEN HONORED Montreal Canadiens' goalie Ken Dryden (left) and Alan Eagleson, president of the National Hockey League players' association chat Monday at a dinner given by a Montreal chapter of the Knighti of Pythias to honor Dryden as an outstanding example 1o youth. (CP Wirephoto) Rustlers are up for sale Cadman tired of criticism MONTREAL (CD Alan Eaglesou, director of the Na- tional Hockey League Play- ers' Association, said Monday the association's present objective is to convince team owners that parity between new and established clubs is a necessity. "They've taken care of ev- he said in refer- ence to the owners' position on expansion of the league to 16 from 14 teams. "But they seem to have forgotten about one hockey fan." He told, a Knights of Pythias dinner honoring Montreal Canadiens' goaltender Ken Dryden as athlete of the year that ticket prices are not pro- portional to the quality of hockey being played in the NHL. "The prices keep going up and up and up, while the qual- ity keeps going down and down and down. "One thing that's harder to do than get four tickets for a Boston-Montreal game is to give away four tickets to a California-Montreal game." Eagleson said the players have begun to realize they "are as weak or as strong as their weakest team." "The cards are stacked against expansion clubs. Only one group can raise a voice of protest that will not tall on deaf fans." Some fans have already In- dicated their disapproval of the disparity in the strength of NHL clubs, he said, by staying away from certain games. "In Detroit, they help. When Boston plays there they draw When California plays there they draw "That seems to be the only kind of message the will listen to." On the subject of the Can- ada-Russia scries planned for the fall, Eagleson said Cana- dian fans should be prepared for bad-calls on offsides under the two-referee system1 which will be used. "You're going to see somo eight- and 10-foot offsides, so you'd better get used to he told the persons at- tending the dinner. RED DEER (Special) The Red Deer Rustlers of the Al- berta Junior Hockey League are for sale. Alf Cadman, owner and and coach of the club, made the ajrnouncmeent today in Red Deer. "After five years of criticism over the job I have done, I am selling the said Cad- man. Cadman, In the past five years, has directed his club to one national junior champion- ship in Tier 2, two western Canada titles as well as three Alberta crowns. "I have taken nothing but abuse these past years and feel It is time to step Cad- man added. The team will sell in shares set at each. There are SO shares for sale. Cadman feels if a group ol Red Deer businessmen buy tha team they will receive more co operation than he did dur- ing his five-year tenure. It is also thought that if a group of people were to buy the club they could get some action on a new arena for the club. In selling the club Cadman made it known that the whole operation, franchise, players and equipment, goes with it. Red Deer, along with Cal- gary Canucks, Drumheller Fal. cons, Calgary Mount Royal, Edmonton Maple Leafs and Movers and Lethbridge Sugar Kings formed the league last year.

But in an interview later, Miss Bourassa said she has found no scarcity of fans on the professional lour this year. "When I first started out, T expected it to be more lonely. You always h ea r ab ou t how competitive it is. "But in the first tournament at Mi ami, there were some French-Canadians there on va- cation and they followed me all through the tournament. Then they invited me to join them for a meal and so it goes. "I find the people are very good wherever I go and there is always something to do. "I thought at first I would be stuck alone in my hotel but there is not time for that." TOOK A BREAK Miss Bourassa said she skipped the Lady Carling Open at Baltimore last week to relax and gel in some practice. "I was beginning to play some shots over in my dreams so I figured It was lime to take a rest." She said she had been having some trouble with h er chip shots, but there was no evidence of that trouble Monday. "I was playing the chip shots perfectly and I put together one of my best rounds ever. I think this proves that you have to a rot IB a white."
