The 38-year-old Englishman known as the king of amateur golf in this country, injured his back in his second match over Royal PorthcawPi links. Bonafiack's injury happened as he struck a forward second shot to the fifth green. At that stage he was two up on Peter Holt, another English player. RON TAYLOR Blind skater is good PORLAND, Ore. (AP) It is early morning at the Lloyd Center ice skating rink. The only sounds are the hiss of skates and one person talking constantly. On the ice, veteran skater Emil Georgeny listens intent- ly to that single voice because it tells him his position on the rink and keeps Mm from smashing into the railing. Georgeny, o3, has been blind since 1941 when shrapnel claim- ed his eyes while he was a Hungarian soldier during World War H. He was a teacher before the war, but after five years of sur- gery, he studied in Norway to become a physical therapist. He now works as an assistant therapist in the office of his wife, a licensed physical ther- apist. "I have skated since I was 10, and many people make continued skating possible for Georgeny said while exe- cuting a backward figure eight on one leg. Several persons take turns picking Georgeny up at his southwest Portland home once or twice a week, taking him to one of three skating arenas which have opened their rinks to him before regular hours, then driving him home or to work. Although sightless, Georgeny performs the intricate move- ments as well as practiced skaters who can see. He can glide through a series of figure eights, move into a backwarc arch, then take off into sitting spins and standing spirals. said Taylor. "So we'll be just ine tonight and in Edmonton on the weekend. The Lakers meet Edmonton Tigers twice in be capital. Racking Sdlivan will be catcher Bryan Maxwell who wielded a big bat in a sweep over Edmonton Btockers. Max- well was four-for-eight, includ- ing a triple and two doubles. Tonight's infield will be the combination of Brian Hogan at short and Ken Nakama at sec- ond. Flanking them at first will be Rob Roy while at third is Bob Brown. Lakers' outfield, second to none in the league, includes Howie Heggedal in left, Tim NegreDo in centre and Wayne Commodore in right. Commo- dore blasted a 380' home run Sunday to share is the Lakers impressive 25-hit attack over the two games. Manager Taylor will miss the dub's next two games as he will fly to New York to take part in an Old-Timers game. "I wouldn't go just for a game but they are retiring Gil Hod- ges' uniform and I wouldn't miss thai for said Taylor. Hodges was the man- ager of the Mets when Taylor played there and the man, ac- cording to Taylor "was the greatest man I have ever met in my life." In the meantime Calgary Giants smashed 14 hits while playing errorless in the field and dumped Calgary Jimmies 10-8 in the Alberta Major Base- ball League Wednesday night. The Giants broke up a tie with three runs in the seventh and scored three more in the ninth against losing right- hander Harvey Gabel. The Jimmies were charged with six errors as they fielded a number of substitutes due to injuries. Gabel was replaced with righthander Don Davis m the seventh. Davis injured his ankle in the eighth and Gable had moved to third base forced to return to the mound. Catcher John Edwards sock- ed a 400-foot homer for the win- ners while shortstop Dave Ed- son rapped a 340-foot homer and a double and drove in two runs. Outfielder Al Twa contribut- ed three singles to the Giants and infielder Larry Nakonech- ny had two singles and two RBIs. Outfielder Rich Meily rap- ped a two-run homer and a single to drive in three .runs for the Jimmies. Leftie Dave Day was the winning pitcher in relief of Tom Changnon. In Red Deer Al McKee slash- ed a two-out single to drive in the winning run in the bottom of the ninth inning, as the host, Generals nipped Edmonton Ti- gers 8-7 Wednesday night. McKee, who also tripled in two early runs for the Gener- als, delivered after Jesse Cha- vez clouted a bases- empty home run which enabled the Tigers to tie the game in the top of the ninth. Don Pasutto, working in re- lief of starter McKee, secured the win, and Mickey Hall, the third Edmonton pitcher, was charged with the loss.

Belmont ready for Saturday Secretariat makes final run NEW YORK (CP) Out among the barns at Belmont Park, which can accommodate horses, a big red chestnut colt with a tremendous girth was up early Wednesday for his final workout before Saturday. A yellow sign with big, black letters spelled out Secretariat's name, the colt which has cap- tured the imagination of the racing public as few other three year old thoroughbreds have done in 25 years. The winner of the Kentucky Derby and Preakness Stakes goes after the third jewel in the Belmont Stakes. Secretariat's main contender for the Belmont is Sham, the horse that ran sec- ond in the Derby and Preak- ness. Jockey Ron Turcotte worked Secretariat Wednesday morn- ing, going a half-mile in 46 3-5 seconds and five-eighths in 59 2-5. WORKED EASY j "He was well within i said Turcotte. "I didn't ask him to go faster." "We're ready for the big trainer Lucien Laurin said later at the barns. "I hope to the good Lord that we get in the winner's circle." The Belmont is the last jewel in the Triple Crown and Secre- tariat is an early 2-to-5 favorite to win it in a six-horse field. Ci- tation was the last horse to win the rare triple in 1948. Trainer Frank (Pancho) Mar- tin, who handles Sham, an- nounced Wednesday he was adding Knightly Dawn as an en- try with Sham. Knightly Dawn has a reputation as a front run- ner. Other expected starters were Arthur Appleton's My Gallant, Max Gluck's Twice a Prince and C. V. Whitney's Pvt. Smiles. Television coverage of the event begins at 3 p.m. MST on the CBC national network. The pressures have been building all week in the Meadow Stables barns as owner Penny Tweedy, Laurin and Tur- cotte face the inevitable bar- rage of questions about "strategy" for the Belmont. "That's a terrible word almost as bad as game said an old racing buff, Bob Kelly, who handles the press. "I hope they just let Secretariat run." But one thing Turcotte and Laurin have learned after Sec- retariat's third-place finish in the Wood Memorial is that when Big Red is flying, let Mm go his way. In the Preakness, Turcotte never laid a whip to him. If they win with Secretariat, Laurin and Turcotte will be the first Canadian-born trainer- jockey combination to take Triple Crown. FASTBALL PITCHER REQUIRED Phone BRYSON BROWN at 328-9231 Short sport REDSKINS MAKE DEAL WASHINGTON (AP) Wash- ington Redskins of the National Football League have acquired wide receiver Paul Staroba from Cleveland Browns for an undisclosed draft choice, it was announced Wednesday. LONGSHOT WINS EPSOM, England (AP) English owned Morston, a 25- to-1 longshot, charged through the last 50 yards today to win the Epsom Derby, England's premier thoroughbred race over 1% miles. Cavo Doro finished second with Freefoot third. Ksar, the 5-1 favorite, was a well-beat- en fourth. HODGES CALLED UP TIDE WATER, Va. (AP) New York Mets of the National League Wednesday called up Ron Hodges from Memphis in the Texas League to bolster their catching staff. With Jerry Grote on the disabled list be- cause of a broken right arm and Jerry May sidelined with tendonitis of the wrist and a pulled hamstring muscle, the Mets were down to one Dyer. LIBETT SIGNS DETROIT (AP) Left- winger Nick Libett has signed a three-year contract with Detroit Red Wings for an undisclosed sum, the National Hockey League club said Wednesday. Libett, native of Stratford, Ont, had 19 goals and 34 assists dur- ing the 1972-73 season, his sixth with the Wings. READY TO START PHILADELPHIA (AP) Pitcher Steve Carlton, who was unable to start for Philadelphia Phillies of the National League Sunday and Monday after suf- fering muscle spasms in his back during warmups, may go to the mound Friday night against San Diego Padres. Ex- amined in Houston, the Astros' team physician said Carlton does not have any spinal or nerve damage.
