Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - June 28, 1974, Lethbridge, Alberta Friday, June 28, 1974 THE LETHBRIDQE HERALD Pickets gone, peace restored, CFL owners, players ink pact Pickets go today Striking Hamilton Tiger-Cat veterans will be gone from Ivor Wynne Stadium today. OTTAWA (CP) Peace returned to the Canadian Football League early today as players and management signed a three-year pact giving the players increased pay for playoff games and the Grey Cup match. Neither Norm Kimball, head of the management committee, nor George Reed, president of the CFL Players' Association, would give details of the settlement. "We came up and they came said Kimball after roughly 12 hours of negotiations with the players "We think it is one of the best, if not the best, deals for athletes in North said Reed. Kimball said it was the decision by the players to sign a three-year deal that turned the tide in the negotiations that threatened the start of the exhibition season as well as regular season play. Only two days earlier Kimball said the owners had "no more dollars" to offer the players. And Reed had said the players would not budge from their offer. MANY ISSUES The dispute centred on pensions, per diem pay during the training camps and pay for playoff games. While pensions and training camp issues were settled earlier, it was such demands as for Grey Cup winners by 1975, an increase of 100 per cent over 1973 that raised the hackles of the owners. As of Tuesday, both sides were roughly apart. In addition, the players were seeking a two-year project while the owners wanted a three-year deal. With the help of CFL commissioner Jake Gaudaur, both sides came back to the negotiating table Thursday At the first session the players again came down on their demands although insisting on a two-year deal. After an adjournment, the management side, headed by Kimball and consisting also of John Barrow of Toronto Argonauts and Ralph Sazio of Hamilton Tiger-Cats. countered with an offer over a three-year period. CALLED OWNERS When the players accepted, then all nine CFL clubs engaged in a conference telephone call during which Kimball said there was unanimous agreement to accept the terms sides showed good faith and bargaining was said Kimball. He added that both management and players went out of their way to come to an agreement. "We'll be ready to go back to work said Reed on behalf of the 288 veteran players who went on the voluntarily retired list to back up their demands. Kimball said he wanted "all concerned with the league'' to know the exact terms of the settlement before it was made public "But knowing this league, it will be made public soon." he added McGlothen wins llth game for Cards Fifth inning was costly to Expos ASSOCIATED PRESS Lynn McGlothen, who has won more games than anybody else in the National League, pitched a four-hitter for St. Louis Cardinals Thursday night for his llth victory of the season, a 6-1 breeze over New York Mets In Thursday night's other National League games, Chicago Cubs edged Montreal Expos 5-4, Cincinnati Reds beat Atlanta Braves 6-3 and San Francisco Giants topped San Diego Padres 4-2. "I'm not doing anything dif- ferent than I did last year, ex- cept maybe I'm throwing a few more said McGlothen, comparing his 11- 3 season and 2.62 earned-run average with 1973's 1-2 mark and 8 22 ERA with Boston Red Sox. "The Red Sox gave me a chance to pitch early last sea- son. I just didn't win." He didn't have much of a chance, though. Boston used him for only 23 innings, during which he had 16 strikeouts and eight walks. He's pitched 106 innings already for the Cards with 72 strikeouts and 41 walks Angels' Winkles out of a job ASSOCIATED PRESS It's a good thing Marty Pattin throws a lot faster than he learns. "I threw five sliders in a row to (Aureho) Rodriguez in relief on our last road trip to Detroit." said Pattin after his long, strong relief stint helped Kansas City Royals topple Oakland A's 5-4 Thursday night. "And he hit one of them for a home run "I realized right then my fast ball is my best pitch and I haven't been using it enough over the years Manager Jack McKeon also noticed that Pattin's best pitch was the one he wasn't throwing. "We told him he had a good fastball and to use it. He proved it tonight." Elsewhere in the American League. Cleveland Indians shaded Boston Red Sox 2-1, Milwaukee Brewers tripped Detroit Tigers 5-1. Minnesota Lopez shot GUADALAJARA, Mexico (AFP) Fullback Jaime Lopez was .shot and killed Thursday, the second player on the Mexican National soccer team to be murdered within a month. Lopez was shot down, along with a student leader apparently for political reasons. Three weeks ago, forward Octavio Mucino was murdered in a bar by a gunman who escaped. Both national players be- longed to the Guadalajara First Division soccer club. Twins dump'ed Chicago White Sox 6-3. and California Angels blanked Texas Rangers 5-0. Although Pattin had pitched six previous seasons in the majors, it took another half year and Rodriguez' homer to convince him that speed can kill the opposition. "I used the fastball an awful Short sport TO THE BULLPEN DALLAS (AP) David Clyde, the pitcher who went straight from high school to the major league Texas Rangers last year, has been removed from the American League baseball team's pitching rotation, manager Billy Martin says. Martin said the 19-year-old left hander has been replaced with right hander Steve Hargan. Clyde is 3-4 on the year, having lost his last four decisions.
