Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - June 25, 1973, Lethbridge, Alberta Monday, 1973 THE IETHBRIDGE HERALD 9 ANDY CAPP NFL expansion soon to come? NEW YORK (AP) National Football League owners gather here this week with problems- old, new and borrowed. Held over from their last meeting is the question of ex- pansion and how quickly, if at all, the league should go with the problem. Far more immediate and more explosive is the charge of drug usage oy players in the league. And finally, league owners want to continue discussions on ways to avoid the labor prob- lems which have plagued base- ball at contract time. Commissioner Pete Rozelle will unveil his guidelines to combat any drug abuse prob- lem at the meeting of the 26 league owners and top manage- ment which begins Tuesday. The problem was brought to the surface by a New York Tunes report June 12 that at least four NFL players were un- der surveillance by federal au- thorities for traffic in illegal and dangerous drugs Since then, the NFL Players Association has reacted strongly to the suggestion of the house commerce investigations subcommittee that urinalysis be used as a deterrent. Meeting in Chicago during the weekend, the players voted to oppose any owner-imposed drug program and called for a joint owner-player study of the prob- lem, if there is one. Rozelle met with the players for more than four hours, but declined to disclose his new rules, saying it was still under The last time Rozelle met with the owners, in Scottsdale, Ariz., last April, he said league expansion would come "much faster than I anticipated." At that time, he appointed Dan Rooney, vice-president of Pittsburgh Steelers, to head a committee to study the matter. Rooney said his committee would probably have something to report during this week's meetings. With the conJng negotiations between the owners and the players' association, the owners began earlier than usual this year to avoid the strike prob- lems which baseball owners found themselves in previously.

QUINELLA: It was the day of the loooooong ball By PAT SULLIVAN Herald Sports Editor Wayne Commodore takes to Red Deer General pitching much the same as a person takes to home cooking. He'll take all of it he can get. Sunday at wind blown Hen- derson Stadium, Commodore took the Generals apart with the hardwood as he pounded out three home runs, a triple, a single while being walked three times. He also found time to squeeze in a sacrifice fly to account for 12 runs batted in. Commodore's out p u t was enough for the Lakers to win both games of their Sunday Al- berta Major Baseball League doubleheader with Red Deer. Lakers, however, b a eked Commodore's onslaught b y thrashing the Generals 17-6 and 17-5 in their biggest outburst of the season. In the opening game Com- modore stroked s u c c essive three run home runs to aid Al Ferchuk in his fourth win of the season. The loss went to Fred Cardwell, who along with Don Passuto gave up home runs to brothers Bryan and Marty Maxwell. Marty added a double while Bryan chipped in with a single. Bob Brown followed with three singles as every member of the Lakers, with the exception of ALBERTA MAJOR LEAGUE South division W L Pet.

Ken Nakama had a double and a single with two more singles coming from Rob Roy. When the Lakers scored, they came in bunches. Red Deer led 1-0 after one inning of play and that was the end of their suc- cess as the Lakers scored four times in the second and six times in the fifth in the seven- inning opener. Generals, on any other given day, may have had more luck. They got to Ferchuk for 15 hits, three less than the Lakers. Their only problem was not putting them together. Blair Hanna led the way with a double and a single and got support from Rook Barton and Al McKee, each with two singles. In the second encounter Com- modore shared the honors with Bryan Maxwell and Howie Heggedal. Commodore stroked a three- run circuit blast while Hegge- dal and Maxwell chased home owe runner ahead of them. Negrello broke out of his short drought with three singles. Once again the Generals were tough on winner Paul Sullivan as they got to the Lakers' ace for 12 hits. Sulli- van, however, found his work was all easy street after five innings as his mates scored five times in each of the third and fifth innings. Sullivan is now 4-0 over the year. The loss went to Roger Pozzo who gave way to Mike Shoup in the sixth inning. Heggedal, the league's lead- ing hitter, pounded out a double and single to go with his home run but still saw his bat- ting average dip some from the .472 clip he maintained through last week. Lakers travel to Calgary Tuesday for a big game against the Giants. The same two clubs play at Henderson Stadium Thursday evening at eight o'clock. The Calgary Giants gained a split in their weekend series by defeating Edmonton Blockers 4-2 Sunday. Giants managed only four hits off right-hander Steve Purcell but the Blocker pitcher suffer- ed control problems, walking five and hitting three batters with stray pitches. Left-hander Gord Vejprava picked up the pitching victory with four and two-third innings of two-hit relief. Giants scored twice in the first inning on a single by Dave Edson and added a third run in the second on two Blocker errors and a single by Al Twa. The winning run was scor- ed by Twa hi the sixth when he reached base on a fielder's choice and scored on an infield single by Paul Galhvan. Mike Bullock hit his first home run for the Blockers in the second inning. The Blockers took advantage of Giant errors to score a 6-2 victory Saturday. The Blockers scored three runs on errors and three others were forced across the plate by losing pitcher Jim Peterson when he issued walks with the bases loaded. Righthander Glen Winder scattered six hits in gaining the victory for the Blockers. He gave up a run in the second in- ning when Larry Nakonechny singled, stole second and scor- ed on a pair of ground balls. One scored in the fifth on sin- gles by Mel Pettigrew and Bob Popworth and an error. Winder struck out seven and walked two. Peterson was charged with all the Blocker runs and was relieved by left- hander Gord Vejprava in the eighth inning. Catcher Bruce Gullet paced the Blockers' nine hit attack by driving in two runs with a pair of singles. Rick Johnson also had two hits.

Rain responsible for high scores Bowerman wins playoff Sunday VANCOUVER (CP) Gary Bowerman, making "as good a shot as I've lat in some time, edged Bob Panasiuk in the third extra hole Sunday to win the tension-packed British Columbia open golf tournament in a battle of Ontario golfers. Bowerman, now playing out of Richmond Hill, but planning to make Florida his home, toured the tight rain-drench sd par-72 Richmond Golf Course in 68 in the final round to tie Pan- asiuk of Windsor and force the sudden-death playoff. Both play- ers wound up with 213s, three under par. Rain fell on the last two days of the 54-hols event, keeping scores high. Bowerman said after his vic- tory that he plans to move to Florida and play on the lucr- ative United States professional tour.

"I've never won a big tourna- ment before, so this win is a nice one for said Bow- erman. Besides winning he also gets an exemption into this year's Canadian Open as the low Canadian finisher "The exemption is nice, but right now I'll settle for the Bowerman said "I think I could have qualified for the Open anyway." Panasiuk, who has already qualified for the Canadian Open by virtue of his victory in last year's Canadian Professional Golfers Association tournament, took home for finishing second. Jim Love of Tacoma, Wash, was third with a 215 and was the only other golfer who man- aged to break par on the yard course. He won Bill Wakeham of Duncan, B.C., and Bob Duden of Port- land, Ore a past winner here, were next with par 216s and five other golfers were tied an- other shot back.
