Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - June 21, 1973, Lethbridge, Alberta
8 THE LITHBRIOCE HERALD Thondoy, June 21, 1973 Draw will be made Friday Unseeded players move up in ranks LONDON (AP) Even when Wimbledon is being boycotted, it's an ill wind that blows no- body any good. Lilie Nastase of Romania has become favorite to win one of the world's most coveted tennis titles, and a group of players rated a week among ag the outsiders could become seeded. Jimmy Connors of Belleville III, Alexander Metreveli o Russia, and even 17-year ol Featured race now in doubt ALBANY, N.Y. (AP) AI Laurin, the ex-Montreal jockey proposed match race between Triple Crown winner Secretar- iat and two other three-year- olds became doubtful with the announcement that Linda's Chief would not participate. Neil Hellman, owner of Linda's Chief, said Wednesday night his horse would not run against Secretariat and Our Na- tive, the other horse in the spe- cial Hs-mile. match race proposed for Arlington Park on June 30. "We will not race him at a mile and an Hellman said in a telephone interview. "The reason is we feel that a rnile-and a sixteenth is a better distance for him. My feeling is that he shouldn't run, and I spoke to my trainer and his feeling is that he shouldn't run, too ASSIGN TOP WEIGHT Arlington Park had an- nounced the purse and distance, and assigned top weight of 126 pounds to Secretariat, while giving 120 pounds each to Linda's Chief and Our Native. The winner was to get the runner-up and the third-place finisher Secretariat, Meadow Stable's sensational Triple Crown win- ner, had been announced as an entry although trainer Lucien had said nothing was set. But Wednesday, the trainer was quoted as saying: "The reason we're going in it is for the and also because we want to give the people of the mid-west a chance to see Secre tariat." Linda's Chief is a multiple stakes winner as a three-year- old but has not met Secretarial this year. Giants pass Lakers CALGARY (CP) Right- hander Jim Peterson pitched the Calgary Giants into first place in the southern division of the Alberta Major Baseball League Wednesday, stopping Red Deer Generals of five hits in a 3-1 victory. Peterson, in pitching his sec- ond straight win over Generals, struck out nine and walked three. General's got their only run the fourth inning when outfield- er Irv Horns singled, stole sec- ond and scored on a single by Al McKee. Horns had three of Red Deer's five hits. Cardwell struck out nine in working seven innings and was relieved by Don Pasutto in the eighth. Two new awards, both in honor of former outstanding baseball personalities in Al- berta, have been added to those presented annually by the "Al- berta Major Baseball The "George Wesley Memor- ial Trophy" will go to the out- standing Canadian ball player in the league, and the "Hustle in memory of the late Art Lewis, is to be award- ed to a player who excels in the hustle category during the A.M.B.L. season. George Wesley, one of the most colorful and dedicated baseball men ever connected with the game in western Can- ada, pioneered baseball in southern Alberta for over a de- cade. He owned and manag- ed Granum White Sox, a most successful semi-pro baseb a 11 team, in the late fifties and early sixties, and also operat- ed a team out of Lethbridge during the days of the Western Canada Baseball League.

Swedish wonder boy Bjorn Borg could be among the top ratings when the postponed draw is made Friday. Plans for Wimbledon, starting next Monday, were wrecked when the Association of Tennis Professionals (ATP) called on its members to walk out in sympathy with Nikki Pilic, the suspended Yugoslavian. More than 30 men had signed away their Wimbledon hopes Wednesday night and the num- ber is expected to grow to 70 or 75. Nastase, winner of the Forest Hills, French and Italian titles in the last eight months, found himself left almost alone. STARS WITHDRAW Stan Smith of Sea Pines, S.C., who beat Nastase in the 1972 Wimbledon final, had gone. So had Australia's John New- combe, three-time winner of the title, veteran campaigner Ken Rosewall of Australia and Ar- thur Ashe of Richmond, Va. Of the 16 original seeds, only Nastase and Jan Kodes of Czechoslovakia were left. Nastase is a member of ATP and had pledged to join in the boycott if Pilic was not allowed to play. But the Romanian Na- :ional Tennis Association spoke to Nastase Wednesday and gave him his orders. "I shall he said. It will please the girls who [lock to Wimbledon in thou- sands. Nastase is one of the most popular idols the game ias known. Crowds of girls with auto- graph books have pursued him around Queen's Club this week where he has stroked his way nto the Quarter-finals of the London grass court diampion- ships. EVERT DOESN'T AGREE Left-hander Connors, a sur- prise quarter-finalist at Wimble- don last year, is not a member of ATP. "It looks like a big chance for Blanda going strong Some athletes just never seem to age New champ Frank Johnson won the Lethbridge Brewery High Handicap tournament Wednesday. Johnson, of the Country Club, bested 85 golfers at Henderson Lake. Johnson takes igii Handicap Connors said as he strolled around Queen's Club with his constant companion, hris Evert of Fort Lauderdale, Fla. Miss Evert laughed off sug- of a boycott by women )lajers who think they should ;et a bigger share of the prize money. "Nothing could stop me from the 18-year old Ameri- can girl said.

Margaret Court of Australia, who has already won the Aus- ralian and French titles and is ;oing for the grand slam, pulled iut of the Queen's Club tourna- ment Wednesday with a back train. She is the No. 1 seed at Wim- iledon with defending champion Jillie Jean King of Long Beach, Calif., No. 2. Frank Johnson of Lethbridge became the third winner of the Lethbridge Brewery High Han- dicap golf tournament Wednes- day afternoon at Henderson Lake. Johnson, who golfs out of the Country Club, captured low net honors at the one-day affair and with it the Lethbridge Brewery trophy. Previous winners included Gordon Scroggie and Enso Ba- ceda. Johnson toured the par-71 Lake Layout in nines of 4745 for a gross 92. But in the High Handicap Johnson was able to use his 30 handicap for a low net 62. Tony Kalvia and John Thack- ray each finished with low net scores of 64, two strokes off Johnson's pace. Low gross honors went to Don Eillau of Taber with an 32. Bil- lau had rounds of 41-41.

Finley, owner of the California Golden Seals, to consider purchase of the club by the league. NHL president Clarence Campbell said Wednesday that the five-man executive com- by chairman of the board Bruce Norris of De- troit Red the au- thority from the governors to buy the club and the franchise from Finley if the price and terms of sale are satisfactory. Finley, believed to have paid between million and mil- lion for the Seals three years ago, said in a telephone inter- view from Chicago that "there is a good possibility the club will be sold to the league." "I purchased the Seals three years ago with hopes of keeping the club in Finley said. "The first year I lost the second year and 1 million in the third. If I stayed as owner I'd anticipate losing even more. NEW YORK (CP) Old ath- letes like Gordie Howe and George Blanda never really fade away. They seem to grow younger by the day. Blanda is the okbst player and the top scorer in the Na- tional Football League. When he advertises a popular men's toiletry on television, his pitch is hardly aimed at the over-the- hill gang. George Is 46 and when he starts at quarterback for Oak- land Raiders next September it will be his 24th season as a pro. In the TV commercials, he looks younger and insists that being well-groomed is part of the game. He also tells viewers that he can still compete with the youngsters on and off the football field. Smelling nice helps. Blanda has kicked more goals than any other pro foot- he is the all- time scoring champion with 742 points. Of course, most of his points came as a place- kicker, but he can still run and pass and mastermind the team for a spell. HOWE WAS ACHING Gordie Howe spent a quarter- century in the National Hockey League before he retired in 1971, his body aching and arth- ritis in his wrist after playing 1.687 games and 154 in the play offs. All his pro career except ar initial season in the minors wa spent with Detroit Red Wings After his retirement, he wa given an ambirjuous virx-pres dency in the Red Whig publi relations office. It lasted two years. Howe' life has always been geared t on the ice. Now at 45, Howe is embar king on a second playing caree in a leagu-3 engaged in a hockey war with the NHL. What better way to pull in the crowds than have the Gordie, Marty and Bobby Hull and his Winnipeg Jets come to town in the 12 team World Hockey Associ ation? Gordie signed a four-yeai contract Tuesday for close to mHion to play next season foi the WHA Houston Aeros with his two sore. His wife, Colleen will be a consultant to tb.3 Aeros, presumably in the fielc of amateur hockey where she has varied experience. "The Howe-ston Aeros: A Real Family headlined New York Daily News. THERE'S MORE YET Marty and Mark signed for or more over a four year term, leaving brother Mur- ray, 12, and sister Cathy, 13, as free agents. The Daily News quotes in siders saying the WHA put up the money Houston extended to the Howe family. When Hull jumped from Chicago Black Hawks to sign a 10-year con- tract as playing-coach of the Jets, the league guaranteed his contract. Few men have stood out in any game as Howe has in hockey. The mare statistical record Is longer than any other individual in the NHL guide. Howe played more seasons and more games than any other player, and his regular-season total goals and and be carried on the books for years to come. He won the scoring champion- ship six times and was picked as the most valuable player six times. He made the all-star teams 22 times, and scored 20 or more goals for 22 successive sessons. In the 1970-71 season, was 43 when he wound up with 23 goals and 29 assists. But he often said in his later years that he would quit when the fun of playing had gone out of he game, and it did that season. It was his the NHL. Now the fun of playing has returned with a million-dollar shot in the arm to kill the pain. In his career, Howe received more than 300 stitches in his face and hardly a part of his body escaped injury. When he was 21 he suffered a severe skull fracture, and he was in the operating room three hours while surgeons worked to halt a hemorrhage in his brain.

Santoni and Zadadny each came within whiskers of no- hitters Wednesday evening in Major Men's Fastball League action at Dave Elton Park. In the first game, Santoni struck out nine men in five innings, allowed just one hit and a walk and belted a home run as the Lethbridge Miners blanked are Lethbridge Gener- als 12-0. When Santoni decided to share the spotlight his brother Corrido and Rick Shewchuk took over. Both chipped in with a double and a single as the loss went to Tom Yip. Aaron Clements poked out a single to spoil Santoni's bid for a no-hitter. Zasadny, on the other hand, was hit twice as hard as San- toni. He gave up two singles, both in the sixth inning, while walking three and striking out nine. Behind Zasadny's two hit pitching the Lethbridge Hotel North Stars dropped the visit- ing Alberta Hotel Orphans of Pincher Creek 7-1. When it 'came time to hit Zasadny had things pretty well his own way as well as he jump- ed on loser Mick Metzler for a home run and a double. Mitch Mychasiuk had a trip to sup- port Zasadny while Jim Tratch stroked a double. Meanwhile, Tuesday night, the North Stars walloped the Lethbridge Generals 14-3 as Zasadny again picked up the win. Key Elliot, with relief help from Tom Yip, was the loser. Eugene Yamada and Seaman each belted a Tom home run for the winners while My- chasiuk added a triple. Zasadny scattered four singles for the win. In another game Tuesday, George 'Jackci bested Hartley Phillips as the Labor Club Ath- letics edged Rae Motors of Picture Butte 5-3. Ken Hutton, with a double and a single, led the way for the Athletics. Sunday afternoon at Dave El- ton at one and three the Miners will play host to Tape Deck of Calgary in a pair of exhibition games.
