Lethbridge Herald (Newspaper) - June 10, 1971, Lethbridge, Alberta Expos hammer out another victory Giants hampered by June swoon By THE CANADIAN PRESS "Fun in 71" is manager Charlie Fox's slogan for San Francisco Giants, but he's having trouble dispelling the "June swoon" label. The Giants managed only one hit-Dick Dietz's second-inning bouncing single up the middle-off Montreal Expos' Steve Renko Wednesday night and went down to a 4-0 defeat, their seventh in eight games this month. In little more than a week, their lead over Los Angeles Dodgers in the National League West has been trimmed from 10% to seven games. Asked if the Giants were psyched by the "June swoon" tag, Fox snapped: "I'm no (censored) psychologist.

Hadfield named Ranger captain MONTREAL (CP) - Emile Francis, coach and general manager of New York Rangers, announced Wednesday that Vic Hadfield has been named captain of the National Hockey League club. Hadfield, a 10-year veteran with the Rangers, succeeds Bob Nevin, traded recently to Minnesota North Stars. that your man just threw a one-hitter out there? Don't you guys want to give him any credit? That's all I'm going to tell you." The players weren't talking, either. They showered hurriedly and raced for the team bus. Elsewhere, Philadelphia Phillies trounced Los Angeles 94, New York Mets rallied to beat San Diego Padres 4-2, Atlanta Braves whipped St. Louis Cardinals 8-3, Chicago Cubs shaded Pittsburgh Pirates 3-1 and Cincinnati Reds edged Houston Astros 2-1. Gene Maucb, the Montreal manager, couldn't analyse Fox's problems either, "I have no idea what's wrong with the Giants," be said. "When we played against them out there they could do nothing wrong." Renko, a tall right-hander, said he might have had a chance on Dietz's ground single. "I just let it go by," he said. He wasn't even sad about coming so close to a no-hitter. "I think my first shutout last year was my biggest thrill," he said. "I'll take a one-hitter or a 10-hitter as long as we win." EXPOS START LATE The Expos didn't get a hit off Gaylord Perry until Bob Bailey beat out a bunt to open the fifth. With two out, Renko doubled him home. Ron Hunt's double, Rusty Staub's single and an infield out made it 2-0 in the sixth and the Expos kayoed Perry in the seventh, scoring their final two runs on Staub's double. The Dodgers failed to gain on the Giants when home runs by Deron Johnson, Byron Browne and Don Money helped Philadelphia's Ken Reynolds to his first major league victory. BRAVES BREAK LOOSE The Cards fell before a six-run Atlanta uprising in the fifth inning, featuring a two-run single by Zodlo Versalles and Hank Aaron's game-tying double. Ferguson Jenkins, from Chatham, Ont., posted his 10th victory as the Cubs downed the Pirates, with Brock Davis driving in a pair of runs with a triple and single. Willie Star-gell's 20th home run accounted for the only run off Jenkins. Johnny Bench's 15th home run, his first since May 25, broke a tie in the eighth inning and lifted the Reds over the Astros. Chuck Harrison's biceps have bulges, his bat has bounce..... and his opponents have bruises. Harrison, who destroyed two minor league teams single-handedly Sunday and Monday before his recall to the American League, came through with another knockout punch as Kansas City Royals beat faltering Washington Senators 5-4 Wednesday night. "I was just looking for the ban," said the 5-foot-lO, 212-pounder who found it and slugged it for a bases-loaded single to score two runs with two out in the ninth inning. Cleveland Indians topped Chicago White Sox 3-1, Baltimore Orioles nipped Minnesota Twins 2-1 in 10 innings, Detroit Tigers trimmed Milwaukee Brewers 3-0, Oakland Athletics smacked Boston Red Sox 6-1 and California Angels spilled New York Yankees 4-3 in the other league games. HAS BEEN AROUND Harrison, a baseball vagabond who played several years with the Houston Astors' organization before moving to Kansas City, didn't figure in their plans this year and, in fact, wasn't even invited to spring training. The Royals, however, couldn't resist another look after his per-formance in the Double-A league this year-14 homers, 46 RBI, a .369 batting average and 125 total bases, all first in the American Association. Frank Robinson doubled home Don Buf ord from first base with two out in the 10th inning as Baltimore won its seventh straight. Norm Cash lashed a three-run homer in the first inning and Les Cain scattered four hits as Detroit handed Milwaukee its sixth straight loss. Chuck Dobson, who started the season with a sore arm, pitched a five-hitter and doubled home the first Oakland run as the Athletic's turned back Boston. Sal Bando and Dick Green each hit his ninth home run in support of Dobson's strong pitching. Tony Gonzalez singled home Ken Berry with the winning run with two out in the last of the ninth for California over New York. .Thursday, June 10, 1971 - THE IETHIRIOCI HERALD - f ANDY CAPP mrh i nil I jii. More sport on page 11 NOW FOR THE , CROSS EXAMINATIONJ I WIVES CAN ASK______ [REALW PENgTRATIN* ^QUESTIONS IfiOO square feet for Wilt's bedroom This is what is meant by BIG! LOS ANGEELES (AP) -Wilt Chamberlain is having a $1 million house built for himself with dimensions befitting a man seven feet lVt inches tall. Take the bedroom. It's 1,000 square feet in size. The ceiling is 14 feet high. The bed is eight feet wide, nine feet long and reposes on a raised 13-by-25-foot platform. But it's only part of the dream house the Los Angeles Lakers centre is having built on a three-acre hillside lot overlooking downtown Los Angeles on one side and San Fernando Valley on the other. Designing it posed a unique headache for architect David Rich and interior decorator Corky Korkowski. The problem was to design and furnish a home in which Chamberlain won't feel cramped but one in which his smaller friends and domestic help won't feel dwarfed. FLOOR LEVEL VARIES Guests visiting the National Basketball Association star will find one feature in the nearly-completed house that helps reconcile their disparate sizes. The main floor is divided into seven levels, each separated by a small step or two or three or four. And the living room, billiard room, the kitchen and dining rooms, the sauna and the bathrooms, the four-bedroom guest suite and two-bedroom servants' quarters all will be average-sized. "That's the public part of the house," Rich says. "Wilt does not want his guests to feel lost here, like they're in a big cave." But by all standards the house is enormous-nearly 10,000 feet square in size, with ceilings a minimum of nine feet high throughout and more than 20 feet high in most of the central living area. DOOR 14 FEET HIGH The front door will be a 14-foot high, 1,500-pound piece of rosewood. The fireplace will tower 45 feet high inside the house, 55 feet outside and the swimming pool will be an ear-cracking 14 feet deep. "I've had to adapt to normal sizes all my fife," he says. "I'm used to it by now. It'll be easier than making my friends suddenly adapt to a giant's world." In keeping with the idea, one chair near the fireplace will be overscale for his personal use while all other furniture in the house, though custom-made will be regulation size. "I don't want some friend to come over and sit down in a chair and just disappear, like Jack visiting the beanstalk," says Chamberlain, 34, a bachelor. "Willie Shoemaker, the jockey, is a friend of mine. I'd like him to come over for dinner and have us sit at the same table, in the same chairs, and both be comfortable."
