Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - June 23, 1973, Lethbridge, Alberta Saturday, June 23, 1973 THE LETHBRIDCE HEKALD Sully, Ferchuk to pitch It's Taber Night tonight at Henderson Stadium. The Lethbridge Lakers, of the Alberta Major Baseball League, will pay tribute to a good many sportsmen of the Taber and dis- trict area. They will also be out to move up on the Calgary Giants in the league standings. Lakers, currently one half game off the pace being set by the Giants of the Cowtown, en- tertain Red Deer Generals in a weekend pair. The first game is set for this evening at Henderson at eight o'clock. The second game will be staged Sunday afternoon at Lakers have a score to settle with the Generals. As a matter of fact the score was 8-7. In their only meeting of the sea- son, the Lakers allowed a 7-3 lead slip away in Red Deer and as a result made the trip home on the short end of an 8-7 count. "We want both games this said Lakers' man- ager Ron Taylor. "I want the club to stay three or four games over the .500 mark so two wins are what I'm looking for." Taylor will go with right- hander Paul Sullivan this eve- ning and Al Ferchuk Sunday. "I'm trying to give all of the pitchers some added Taylor. "We head into the busy part of the schedule in no time so I want everybody ready. Sullivan said recently he would like, just once, to pitch when the sun was shining and ii was hot. He should get his wish this evening. With a record of 3-0 Sullivan will toe the rubber in almost perfect conditions, 75 degree temperature and very little wind. The same is expected Sunday when Ferchuk gets his workout. Should the Lakers sweep a pair from the hard-hitting Gen- erals, the stage will be set for a Tuesday evening meeting be- tween the Lakers and Giants in Calgary.

Shaw, for two years coach of the junior Edmonton Oil Kings, was asked at a news conference whether there was any position on the team he sought to im- prove. "The playoff he re- plied. The Oilers ended the league's first season tied for fourth with Minnesota North Stars, but lost a game in Calgary that decided the final playoff spot. The change in name, Oiler vice-president and general man- ager Bill Hunter said, was to end "once and for all" any speculation the team is contem- plating a move to Calgary, or any other centre, Or to play a split schedule between the cit- ies. NFL players will fight urine tests CHICAGO (AP) John Mackey, president of the Na- tional Football League Players' Association, said Friday night his group will fight any attempt by the owners to institute a urine analysis test to deter al- leged drug abuse by the play- ers. After meeting nearly five hours with NFL player repre- sentatives, Mackey said: "We're not going to stand for ballplayers being treated like animals." The 26 player representatives and the association executive committee were to meet again today and take a formal posi- tion before listening to NFL commissioner Pete Rozelle. Mackey, a tight end with San Diego Chargers, said the drug issue was discussed in great de- tail at the closed meeting and "we don't even know if there is a problem." "Whatever problem there is has been created by manage- he continued. "If play- ers have been taking ampheta- mines, the pills have been given by trainers and physicians. "We don't know what answers we'll get, but we're going to ask some tough questions." OPPOSE TESTS He referred to today's meet- ing with Rozelle which was scheduled before it was dis- closed last week that a congres- sional committee recommended that the NFL use a urine analysis. "The next thing you know, they'll be putting us on the block and the owners will be looking at our teeth before a trade is made, just like a Mackey said. "If they put in a urine test, they'll find out that they won't lave enough pliyers to play a game."

The premier fullback Is the only running back left on the Canadian Football league's All-Star roster and he isn't hap- py with the situation. Reed, who doubles as presi- dent of the CFL Players' Asso- ciation, fired a couple of shots at two particular clubs Thurs- day before heading east for the all-star clash in Hamilton against the Tiger Cats, de- fending Grey Cup champions. "There are a couple of teams in the league who are trying to kill the he said. "Montreal and Winnipeg just don't like the game." While each club in the league is supposed to send four play- ers, Winnipeg Blue Bombers and Montreal Alouettes have refused to send the allotted number. Bombers had agreed to send Mack Herron but he was re- leased after police laid drug charges against him. "We asked for Paul Williams and they turned us said Reed. "We asked for Pete Ribbins and they turned that down, too." Then the Alouettes informed the all-stars that running back Ike Brown would be unable to attend because of an injury. Larry Smith was supposed to take his place but now it ap- pears he won't be there either. "They (Montreal) said he bruised his arm last week. How long does it take for a bruised arm to heal? "We've got an agreement with the league that each team sends four players chosen by the coaches but they're not keeping their part of it." Reed hoped to get Tom Cam- pana of Saskatchewan or Leon McQuay of Toronto Argonauts but he was refused on both counts. "I would think that the only team that's trying to co- operate is said Reed. "Ralph Sazio (Ti-Cat general manager) has even offered to give us one of his running backs for the game." MEETS GAUDAUR Reed said he hoped to meet with CFL commissioner Jake Gaudaur to see if he can apply some muscle to some of the re- luctant teams. "I've never seen a hassle like this before. It's disturb- ing. They're just not co-opera- ting. The game does the league some good, too. It's shown on television in Canada and the United States and helps sell the game." The game, proceeds of which go into a players' pension fund, drew more than fans to Calgary last year and attract- ed large audiences on Cana- dian and American television. It is scheduled this year for June 27. Meanwhile, Blue Bombers' general manager Earl Lunsford said Friday it is not the club's fault they have only three play- ers in the Canadian Football League All-Star game and de- nied charges the club is "trying to kill the game." Reed, who is also president of the CFL Players Assiciation, said earlier Winnipeg and Mon- treal were "trying to kill the game." He said both clubs had refused to provide the required four players for next Wednes- day's game. Lunsfcrd said the Bombers which would have left us seven men .rhort on offense. "How are we supposed to run an offensive scrim mage in training Lunsford also took exception with the selection of three im- ports off the Winnipeg club. Herron, quarterback Don Jonas and offensive tackle Bill Frank are all imports selected from the Bombers, along with Cana- dian centre Bob Swift. ports "which we disagreed with. All the players from our club were offensive players, which we also disagreed with. "Then they come back and ask for another offensive play- er." Lunsford said the imbalance of Canadians to imports should not exist since it leaves one club short of imports and an- other short of Canadians in "They first selected three im-' training camp. The general manager suggest- ed the players association should have invited some of the players who retired this sea- son, such as Paul Robspn of the Bombers and Greg Findlay of B.C. Lions. By using these players, he said, "it would not create hard- ships for some teams. Lunsford said the Bombers are not against the game, as suggested by Reed. He said if Reed or others want to inter- They're both out It all started when Detroit Tiger shortstop Ed Br in km an (right background) was called out on strikes Friday night at Yankee Stadium and disagreed with the final strike called. He was ejected from the game. Then Tiger manager Billy Martin took up the argument with home plate umpire Russel Gcetz. He wcs thrown out. Finally, third base coach Art Fowler (not shown) and was ejected. The arguments came in the fifth inning of a game the New York Yankees won 5-4. Still ivasn't satisfied were willing to provide the four players selected, but added, "if they decided not to take one of our players that's their prob- lem." Herron was dropped from the team and the game after being charged with possession of mar- ijuana. Lunsford said the club refused to allow Williams or Ribbins to attend the game as substitutes for Herron because it would leave the Bombers minus too many offensive players. "They already have three off our offensive squad. Williams or Ribbins would have made it four. Plus we have lost two players and had another retire Rookie shows his heels VANCOUVER (CP) A 20- year-old amateur who works all winter so he can play golf in the summer took on the profes- sionals Friday and grabbed a two-stroke lead after the open- ing round in the British Colum- bia Open golf tournament. Jim Stevenson of Redmond. Wash., toured the par-72 Rich- mond Golf Club in 68 for his margin over the nine golfers who managed 70s. Nine others shot 71 and seven managed to match par.

Stevenson was just about let- ter-perfect in his round on the heavily-treed layout, which was made tougher by the high winds. He was on every one of the tiny greens in regu- lation figures in slicing a stroke off par on each of five holes. He went one over par on only one hole. But he wasn't satisfied. FOUND THE TREES I knocked it in the trees a couple of times on the front nine, although I was down the middle with every drive on the he said, overlooking the fact that he was three under par after his first four holes.

Ore., Moe Norman of Gilford. Out., defending Canadian Profes- sional Golf Association cham- pion Bob Panasiuk of Windsor, Ont., Doug Robb of Abbotsford, B.C., and amateur Dave Don- aldson of North Vancouver. Norman had the day's most unusual round, taking a stroke off par on four holes, getting down in three on the par-five 19th but losing four strokes on four other holes for his 70. Al Balding, veteran Toronto pro who won last week's rain- plagued Alberta Open had a 78.

CFL commissioner Jake Gau- daur, in Hamilton for the all- star game dinner, said Friday night be had talked to both Montreal and Winnipeg "and I'm satisfied the clubs are try- ing to co-operate." "However, there are unusual circumstances this he added, without elaborating. It was apparent he was referring to Winnipeg's dismissal of Her- ron after the 1972 MVP finalist was booked on a drug charge. "Montreal's Gaudaur continued, "is the by- product of legitimate injuries, but they have made a replace- ment in wide receiver Terry Evanshen." He noted that one of the To- ronto Argonaut players, punter Zenon Andrusyshyn, was drop- ped because of a training camp injury and that the club had sent a running back, Eric Allen, as a replacement. The Argos, however, allowed the speedster to go on condition that he be used as a wide re- ceiver and not at running back. Gaudaur said he had heard about the Winnipeg situation "but I've not had an opportun- ity to explore it." r SPORTS FANS: By GARY KIRK KIRK'S TIRE SALES LTD.
