Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - June 14, 1973, Lethbridge, Alberta JO THE UTHBRiUCE HERAID Thursday, June 14, 1973 Herron, Thorpe dumped WINNIPEG (CP) Coach Jim Spavital of Winnipeg Blue Bombers remained ootimistie Wednesday, despite the an- nouncement from the club that running back Mack Herron and receiver Jim Thorpe have been released. Both are Canadian Football League all-stars. President Gordon Muirhead said the two had been waived through the league and now are free agents anywhere in North America. The decision was said to be in the besi interests of the club and was made without elabora- tion at a brief news conference. Herron, 24, was remanded Wednesday to June 2J for plea on charges of possession of marijuana and cocaina. Thorpe, 26, faces a charge of marijuana possession in Toronto. Thorpe and Herron were two- year veterans with the Bombers and played key roles in the Bombers' drive to first place in the Western Conference last season. They were beaten out as Western representatives to the Grey Cup by Saskatchewan Roughriders in a sudden-death final. HERROX BEST RUSHER Herron and Thorpe gair.ed 238 yards on offence last sea- son. Herron, with 16 ;ouch- downs, was the leading WFC rusher with yards on 258 carries. He also picked up 451 yards on 39 receptions. Thorpe, with 11 touchdowns, was the best in pass receiving with yards on 70 recep- tions. Their yardage was only 400 short of the total offence gener- ated by the 1968 Bomber of- fence. And it's more than half the total yards accumu- lated fay the 1972 Bombers. Asked how he expected to re- place that kind of punch, Spa- vital said that the Bombers would simply find other ways of making it up. He mentioned pass inter- ceptions and alluded to the fact that had two other players been running out of Herron's and Thorpe's position last year, they might have made some yardage also. "I'm being Spa- vital said. "There's nothing to guarantee me that they both wouldn't have broken their legs in the first scrimmage. But that's part of "I guess if you let things bother you, this could be consid- ered a blow to the Club, but I can't afford to start worrying about little big he said. Expos still climbing One of 16 for Phillies Del Unser of the Philadelphia Phillies slides home safely as the ball bounces off Los Angeles Dodger catcher Steve Yeager in the third inning Wednesday night in Phila- delphia. Unser scored from third on a sacrifice. Phillies erupted for six runs in each of the first two innings to trounce the Dodgers 16-3. He feels he's >as good as anybody Trevino is conceding nothing OAKMONT, Pa. (AP) Lee Trevino was conceding nothing to defending champion Jack 'Nicklaus as 150 golfers began pursuit today of the 73rd Unhed States Open title. "I had to laugh when I read that Bill Casper said Nick- laus and Tom Welskopf have a 10-shot advantage here this the voluble Mexican- Arnerican spouted. "Casper must be talking about not talking about the Mex. "I figure I've got as good a chance as anybody. I'm as ready as I'm ever going to be.

Where quality tells and price sellsl Tollestrup back with Nationals WINNIPEG (CP) Only three veterans were among 14 players named to the Canadian national basketball team Wednesday. Forwards Phil Tollestrup of University of Lethbridge, Bob Town of University of Manitoba in Winnipeg and John Cassidy of Dalhousie University in Hali- fax all played last year. Coach Jack Donahue named five players from Ontario, Three each from Manitoba and British Columbia, two from Nova Scotia and one from Alberta. Simon Fraser University in Burnaby, B.C., placed guard Bill Robinson and forward Rob Stewart on the squad. In addi- tion to Town, University Of Manitoba will be represented by forward Rick Watts. Martin Riley of Sisler high school in Winnipeg was the only non-collegian named to the ros- ter. Other members of the team are Lars Hansen, Coquitlam, B.C., who played last season with the University of Washing- ton; Mike Moser, University of Waterloo: Bruce Coutlhard, University of Windsor; Greg Redding, St. Mary's University, Halifax; James Russell, Bur- lington, Ont., who played last year for Colgate University in Hamilton, N.Y.; Ken McKsnzie, Vancouver, who played last year for University of Montana, and George Rautins, Toronto, who spent last season with Niagara University at Buffalo, N.Y. This is not the Memphis Open or the Dallas Open. This is the U.S. Open. I get keyed up for this one." The swarthy, 33-year-old Tre- vino is acting like a prize fighter who can't wait for the bell to ring. He is edgy and tense. He for the normally jovial Trevino at kids sticking pads and pencils in his face. "Hey, give me he said. "Wait a minute, don't push so hard." Trevino, who has won two Blockers bonnce on Tigers 8-3 EDMONTON (CP) Ed- monton Blockers exploded for five runs in the fourth inning to defeat Edmonton Tigers 8-3 in an Alberta Major Baseball League game Wednesday night. Greg Warzecka hit a three- run homer for the Tigers in the top of the inning before the Blockers rebounded. Key play in the outburst was a bases- loaded single by George Mc- Carthy. Brian Belts later added a solo homer for the winners. Tigers starter Ernie Hee was tagged with the loss, while the win went to Glen Winder. Calgary a one- game suspension against John Elick, playing manager of Cal- gary Jimmies, for taking part in a melee during Tuesday's game with Calgary Giants, was announced Wednesday by Russ Parker, commissioner of the Alberta Major Baseball League. "Since Elick is in a mana- gerial capacity he must learn to exercise some restraint in trying situations, thereby set- ting an example for the play- Parker said in announc- ing the suspension, which will be enforced during the next game between the two teams June 21. Parker said he feels a one- game suspension is adequate in a 28-game schedule, which would be the equivalent of a five-game suspension in the major leagues. Parker also said that in fu-; ture any ejected player who does not retire immediately to the confines of the club house for the duration of the game "will be facing further dis- ciplinary action." Meanwhile the league-lead- ing Lethbridge Lakers will tra- vel to Calgary for a p.m. encounter with the Giants. The Lakers currently lead the south division of the six- team AMBL sporting a 6-2 record. The Giants trail in sec- ond with a 4-2 standing.

"Jack is the best fast-green putter in the world." Trevino is skipping the locker room here and changing clothes in a mobile home he bought in Memphis. He has ren- :ed an apartment in the area "or his family. "There's no such thing as privacy any more. I can't go into a bar for a drink without >eople swarming all over me. At the course, I can't go to the rest room without somebody grabbing my arm. "I appreciate the friendliness, jut a guy has to relax some time." Wise came close to first no-hitter By THE ASSOCIATED PRESS Hey man, where's the action? Li the National League, of course. Wise of St. Louis Car- dinals came within two outs of pitching a no-hitter. Expos pulled off a triple play. Braves scored 18 runs and Philadelphia Philips 16 in separate games. Not bad for a baseball league without a designated hitter. The results were: St. Louis 8 Cincinnati Reds 0; Atlanta 18, Pittsburgh Pirates 3; Montrea 3, San Diego Padres 2: Phila- delphia I'o, Los Angeles Dodgers 3; New York Mete 3, San Fran- cisco Giants 1 arid Houston trcs 6, Chicago Cubs 1. PICKED WRONG NIGHT "By the way Luis, nice Joe Torre told Luis Melendez who hit a grand-slam homer but was lost in the shuffle be- cause of Wise's no-hit bid. "You just picked the wrong night." O- At._ 13U IUU LUC -LVCUO, VV1IU WGU.G handcuffed by the Cardina right-hander all night. Joe Mor gan's sharp single up the middle with one down in the ninth was Cincinnati's offence for the evening. Wise has been there before however. He had no-hit the Reds in 1971 while a member o the Phils. Wise came to the Cards las season in the controversial trade for Steve Carlton, who embarrassed St. Louis by win ning the Cy Young award. Bu this season the pendulum is swinging the other way. Carlton is having his troubles with the Phils while Wise, 8-3, is making his new employers look good. With Melendez' grand slam leading the way, the Cardinals racked up Cincinnati's Jack Bil lingham early, scoring seven runs in the third. Olshaski couldn't be beaten Park Plaza scored an easy 15-1 vicf.ory over the North Star Bantams behind Dot 01- shaski's four-for-four appear- ance at the plate in Lethbridge Women's Softball League play Wednesday night. Olshaski had the sharp eye as she cracked two home runs, a double and two singles to lead the winners. Ev Hughes and Debi Bare- ham also added solo home runs in the win. Bareham picked up the mound verdict by besting Kathy McCune. In another league encoun ter, Gloria Lazaruk blasted a grand-slam home run and gave Great West Majesties an 18-8 decision "over the Midgets. Linda McKenzie also ham- mered a home run to help Marilyn Marshman earn the win over Terry Wright. Meanwhile in Commercial Men's Slow Pitch League play, Ducan Drifters edged Leth- bridge Glass 10-9. Joe Gazarek was credited with the win while Larry Scholly was nailed with the loss. In another league, tilt, Coal dale Ober's Esso Oilers belted Advance Lumber-Jacks 20-2. Jim Fraser picked up the win and Dwayne Paterson was handed the loss. Professionals can't agree on ivhat is exceptional? Pevine has his doubts NHL will sever ties PICTON, Ont. (CP) Jack Devine of Belleville, Ont., president of the Canadian Amateur Hockey Association, said Wednesday he doubts the National Hockey League will ever use a clause allowing 18- and 19-year-olds to be drafted.

For information call 328-4491 CANADIAN ALL STARS starring Paul "The Bear" Rupert, Dianne Syverson and others He told a service club lunch- eon that CAHA rules allow under-age juniors to be draft- ed if they're exceptional and have reached their full po- tential as amateurs. However, the professionals can't agree on what consti- tutes he said. Houston Aeros of the World Hockey Association recently signed Marty Howe. 19, and Mark Howe, 18, to profession- al contracts. Los Angeles Sharks of the WHA are rumored to have signed Dennis Sobchuk, 18, of Regina Pats of the Western Canada Hockey League. The CAHA NHL agree- ment, signed in 1967 for five years and renewed for 12 months last year, is up for rensgotiation. Under the agreement the NHL is allow- ed to pick amateur players when they have reached, or will reach, their 20th birthday in the same year as the draft. In light of the Howe sign- ings, the NHL apparently is discussing the advisability of renewing the agreement. Devine said that in the 1960s professional clubs controlled junior clubs. "Most of us in hockey thought this was wrong and the federal government task force on sport also thought it was wrong." The first agreement was signed in 1967 with junior players going into the draft rather than being property of the NHL club that owned the junior club. The new set-up ensured that junior players received a pro- per education "and I believe one can put their educational standards attain menls up against any similar age group in the country." Devine said the agreement worked well until the WHA ar- rived on the hockey scene in 1972. The new league has not agreed with the CAHA on signing juniors. "Somewhere along the line someone has to pay for junior development... but negotiat- ing with the WHA has been tough." Gary Davidson, president of the WHA, said at the league's meeting in Toronto last month he saw no reason to deal with the CAHA because it couldn't control juniors. He made the comment after being convinced some juniors had signed contracts with NHL clubs before the draft. Darrell Evans of Atlanta had a new experience when he grounded into a double play in the sixth didn't get on base. Ir. 17 of his previous 18 ap- pearances, the third bassman had 11 walks, four singles and two homers, with a sacrifice fly in the other appearance. His 14th homer of the season NFL claims no knowledge NEW YORK (AP) National Football League Commissioner Pete Rozelle said Wednesday the NFL has "made some high- level inquiries" and that, so far, it has no knowledge of any in- vestigation of its players by narcotics authorities. A story in Tuesday's New York Times, quoting federal state and local narcotics agents, said at least four top NFL plw- ciS are 'under surveillance ior trafficking in drugs. None of the players was named. Rozelle said the league Iras conducted its own in-depth in- quiry, which it plans to con- tinue, and that, as of now, it has "no knowledge of any in- vestigations of NFL players." Asked to be specific about its own inquiries, Roselle said they were at a "very high but would not elaborate. highlighted a six-run fourth which erased a 3-2 Pittsburgh lead and Atlanta went on to col- lect a total of 17 nils.

The triumph put Milwaukee into a tie for second place with Detroit Tigers, just a half-game behind New York Yankees. It's pretty fast company for a city known mainly for beer, not baseball. "We're capitalizing on mis- takes, advancing runners and getting there's no rea- son why we shouldn't keep up our said Dave May. "A team doesn't need many super- stars when it's playing the kind of ball we're playing." In other American League games, Texas Rangers whipped Cleveland Indians 4-2; Kansas City Royals blanked Baltimore Orioles 2-0; Chicago White Sox defeated Detroit 10-2; California Angels downed Boston Red Sox 7-5 and New York belted the Oakland Athletics 8-3.
