I can't iind it Dave Jackson, leading scorer for the Lethbridge Midget Mohawks lacrosse team, can't find the ball in all the weeds at the Mohawks' practice field. Jackson will be in action Saturday night against Bawden Braves of Calgary. The Braves are the only club to defeat the Mohawks this year. Sunday afternoon at will be in town. Both games will be played in Adamt Ice Centre, where there are no weeds. ___ Palmer trails by one stroke AKRON, Ohio (AP) "This murmured Johnny Miller, "is a good habit I'm getting into." The lanky blonde had just put together a three-under-par 67, including a hole in one, for his first compeuiive luuuu since he won the United States Open golf champidhsbip with a record 63 last Sunday. Miller's 67 on the long, tough Firestone Country Club course Thursday gave him a share of the first round lead in the American Golf Classic. He was tied with 23-year-old Forrest Fezler, a tour soph- omore, who also clipped three Burrows, Apps sign for plenty PITTSBURGH (AP) Re- jecting offers from the World Hockey Association, Syl Apps and Dave Burrows both signed multi-year contracts Thursday with Pittsburgh Penguins of the National Hockey League. Alan Eagleson, lawyer for both players, said Toronto Toros of the WHA offered Apps million for five years. He added that Minnesota Fighting Saints of the WHA offered Bur- rows a five-year pact for 000 a year. Apps, 25-year-old centre who lives in Kingston, Ont, signed a five-year agreement for less than million, but apparently not by much. His father, Syl Apps is Ontario's minister of correctional services and NHL Hall of Famer. "I believe it's the largest over-all contract package ever signed by a Pittsburgh said general manager Jack Ri- ley. Eagleson said the figures were more than ?JOO.OOO a year, but a safe total estimate would appear to be around strokes off par on the lush yard layout. Arnold Palmer and three oth- ers were just one stroke back at 68. "I'm encouraged, but not sat- iisiied." the 43-yeai-old rainier said after moving into a tie with big J. C. Snead, Jim Wie- chers and rookie Tom Kite. Jack Nicklaus, who has col- lected a leading and four titles already this season, topped a big group at 69. He reeled off one string of three consecutive birdies but dropped back with a bogey from a bunker on the final hole. Bruce Crampton of Australia, winner of three titles this year, matched par 70 but Tom Weis- kopf took a 74 and was well back in the field. Toronto's George Knudson posted a 72. "It was an easy Miller said. "I've been getting the ab- solute most possible out of my rounds. This one wasn't like that. I feel like it could have been a lot better." He missed two birdie putts of four feet or less, lipped out an- other one on the 17th hole and almost birdied the 18th from an end trap, the explosion shot go- ing in and cut of the hole. Miller, who played with Palmer, said Arnold distracted him while he was on the tee on the fifth, the 230-yard, par-three hole on which he made an ace with a four wood shot. dropped his ball just as I was standing over my tee Miller said. "I stepped back- Arnold said 'Excuse me.' Then I got over it again, hit it and the ball trickled in the hole. I said, 'Thank you, Arnold.' Fezler, who has won almost this season, made all his move on the back nine. He hit an eight iron only four feet from the flag on the loth hole, lipped out birdie putts on the next. two. hit a two-iron shot about five feet from the cup on the lolh and then closed it out (with a 45-to-50-foot birdie putt Ion the 16th.

Judge Charles A. Moye Jr., ruled Thursday in favor of the 27-year-old Miss Blalock, citing in his ruling that LPGA players cannot police their own mem- bers. Miss Blalock of Portsmouth, N. H., currently has a mil- lion anti-trust suit pending against the LPGA. She filed the suit after she was suspended by the LPGA for one year on May 30, 1972, for alleged cheating in tournaments. Moje blocked the suspension, allowing Miss Blalock to con- tinue to compete on the tour pending disposition of the jury trial. Miss Blalock's lawyer, Gene Partain, said Thursday the rul- ing "was vitally favorable to her case. It need not go to a jury." Partain said the ruling finds that "the suspension was ill- founded and it is unnecessary to go to trial." "The only thing left now in- volves damages to her (Miss Moye's ruling came in a par- tial summary judgment asked by Miss Blalock's lawyers, who contended that anti-trust laws were broken when other play- ers, who compose the LPGA's executive board, voted for the suspension. LPGA lawyer John Allen Howard said that "a lesal ques- tion was decided Thursday, j that's all." 1 "It was not decided whether she cheated or did not cheat." ers in the ninth inning to pro- vide the deciding run. The Generals scored to the second when Shoup, Vho start- ed the game at first base, sin- gled home Rook Barton, who had doubled. Hot-hitting Irv Horns rapped a two-run single during a three-run Red Deer splurge in the fifth and almost tied the game in the ninth when his ground-rule double, drove in one Red Deer run and left the tying and winning runs' in scoring position. But winning pitcher .Bob Cur- rie, who went the distance on a nine-hitter, forced Roger Pozzo to pop out. Ken Nelson, Horns and Bar- ton each had two hits for Red Deer while Frank, Sayer and Betts had two each for Ed- monton. Boycott stays, 78 won't play LONDON (AP) The inter- national tennis rebels insisted today on going through with their boycott of Wimbledon and one of the world's prestige championships became a ghost tournament. After a meeting lasting most of the night, the militant Associ- ation of Tennis Professionals (ATP) snuffed out flickering hopes of peace and confirmed that 78 of its members were walking out. The announcement came seven hours before officials of the All-England Club sat down to make the draw. The tourna- ment starts Monday. It meant that dozens of lower- ranked players, who normally would have little hope even of qualifying for Wimbledon, were thrown into a hunt for prize money totalling about Die Nastase, ordered by Ro- mania to play, became a runa- way favorite. With defending champion Stan Smith of the United States among the boycStters, Nastase found himself challenged se- riously only by men like Jan Kodes of Czechoslovakia, Alex- ander Metreveli of Russia and Jimmy Connors of the U.S. SUPPORT OFFERED ATP first announced its boy- cott plan two days ago after British High Court judge re- fused to interfere in tennis law- making and lift the suspension of NikM Pilic of Yugoslavia. Pilic had been suspended by his national federation because he refused to play for his coun- try in the Davis Cup. The draw, originally sched- uled for Wednesday, was put back 48 hours in hopes of a set- tlement. Hopes began rising Thursday that the rebels might find a for- mula for abandoning their boy- cott without losing face. Cliff Drysdale of South Af- rica, ATP president, was called to a meeting with Britain's min- ister of sport, Eldon Griffiths, and said afterward a new factor had arisen. He did not say what it was, but ATP executive-director Jack Kramer said the Yugo- slavs might reconsider their po- sition on Pilic. It was 3 a.m. (9 p.m. EDT Thursday) when Drysdale. look- ing haggard and drawn, came out to reporters the boycott was "final and irrevocable." He said the executive had voted 6-2 for the walkout. Wimbledon was left with a slim hope that some players might desert the ATP camp and play. Declarations of with- drawal were not being handed in by ATP until just before the draw was due to start at 10 o'clock this morning. Wimbledon originally ac- cepted 112 players for the men's singles and left 16 more places jopen for winners of the quali- j fying tournament which has i been going on intermittently be-1 tween rain showers since Mon- day. More than half of the 112 uere involved in the boycott plans. Officials had an alternative list of 128 made up of the non- boycotters plus the hopefuls who entered the qualifying event. The women's singles goes on unchanged. Billie Jean-King, reigning Wimbledon queen, called a meeting of the girls Thursday night and formed a 35-strong women's association to fight for higher prize money. But, she said, there were no plans to boycott what she called "the greatest tournament in the world." Friday, Jun. 22, 1973 THE LETHMIOCI HERALD Leahy dies Legendary Frank Leahy, famed coach of many Notrs Dame winning football clubs, died Thursday m o Port- land, Ore., hospital. The 65-year-old Leahy had been in poor health for several years with ailments including heart trouble and diabetes.

In Norcrest the Pirates dumped the Expos 9-1 as win- ning pitcher Gordon Melnyck had two singles as did Sean Keenan. Cleve Miyashiro chip- ped in with a double. Clark Bosch was the loser as he and his mates got just a sin- gle off of Melnyck.

The Astros edged the Giants 2-1 Thursday in Norcrest Little League action. Secretariat ready lo run again The race will still be staged LEXINGTON, Ky. (AP) Mrs. John Tweedy said Thurs- day night that Triple Crown winner Secretariat will race at Arlington Park in Chicago on June 30 "if and when they can put a race together." Mrs. Tweedy, owner of the colt until his million syndica- tion takes effect in November said: "I think we have an obli- gation, within limits of safety, to take Secretariat around and let see him." Arlington Park has proposed a match race for June 30 to in- clude Secretariat, Grand Prix winner Linda's Chief and Our Native, third in both the tucky Derby and the Preakness. Linda's Chief, however, has been withdrawn from any such race unless the distance is set at a mile or less. Arlington Park had proposed 1% miles for the event. Mrs. Tweedy, speaking to the Thoroughbred Club of America, said Secretariat's Triple Crown victory, the first in 25 years, had created racing fans out of people who had never thought of the sport before. She also told the group. "T feel lie set three track records." She referred to the hearing to be held by the Maryland Racing Commission July 10 to review the timing in the Preakness to determine if Secretariat beat the track record time of The colt set records in both the Kentucky Derby and Belmont Stakes. On the clay of the Preakness, Secretarial was limed w 1.36 by the Visuraatfc automatic timer, but the official time later was lowered to 3-5. It was later reported, however, that two dockers for the Daily Rac- ing Form timed the colt in 2-3. Mrs. Tweedy noled that the famed horse races in her name, but said, "this is dad's horse." Her father, the late Christ- opher Chenery. died last year, but was responsible for the up- surge in thoroughbred breeding that his now famous farm in Virginia has had in recent years. Riva Ridge won last year's Kentucky Derby and Belmont Stakes, losing only the Preakness in a bid for the Triple Crown when the race track turned up If Riva Ridge gained fame for the Virginia farm, Secretariat did far more. Mrs. Tweedy said one of her friends had commented that with Watergate and other mis- fortunes- "Secretariat is the only honest face on the cover of Time Magazine in 10 years." Since Secretariat's Triple Crown victory. Mrs. Tweedy said her life has been a fish- bowl. "It's really been a ball T kind of wish that it would stop but you can't turn it off. "But I get up every morning with renewed excitement. Then I go out to the track to see if he's still there. "When he comes on the track, everything stops. Even the ex- perienced horsemen stop to watch." Jamie Coghlin was the win- ner as he fanned 10 while giv- ing up four hits. Loser Mark Szucs struck out 11 while al- lowing four hits. In Lakeside Little League play the Indians belted the Yankees 12-2 as Brent Maxwell picked up the with a one- hitter. Brian Robinson stroked a home run and two singles for the Indians while Maxwell chipped in with three singles.
