The players know it There is a difference WASHINGTON (AP) The National Football League Play- ers' Association Thursday se- verely criticized a report on ar- tificial turf which says there is no real difference between syn- tlietc grass and the real thing.

Bob Gorham, resident manager of Churchill Downs, said Thurs- day. Gorham said the gold win- ner's trophy will be engraved and presented to Mrs. Gene Markey's Calumet Farm, owner of second-place finisher For- ward Pass, as soon as some pa- perwork is finished. The awarding of the trophy to Mrs. Markey will conclude "one of the longest-running con- 1972 Dfltsun 240-2 Loaded with oir conditioning. 1972 Datsun 510 Air 51000 in extras, low mileage. 1971 Datsun Coupe 1200 "The car with economy as 1973 Arctic Cat Snowmobile Only 133 miles. 2 (Two) 1973 Datsun DEMO'S CLEARANCE Foreign Car (Lethbridge) Ltd. 11023rd Ave.S. Phone 328.9651 The deadline passed this week for further court appeals by Pe- ter Fuller, owner of first-place finisher Dancer's Image. "I think it's a closed book." Stuart Lampe, one of Fuller's attorneys said Thursday. "We fought a long, hard battle. He (Fuller) lost and he's a good loser and that's it." The controversy over the 1968 racing classic began after it was discovered that the Fuller colt ran while under the in- fluence of the drug -phenylbuta- zone, an analgesic forbidden for use iii races Kentucky racing rules. Dancer's Image was barred from participation in the Derby purse and first-place money was awarded to Forward Pass. Fuller appealed that decision to the Kentucky Court of Ap- peals, which upheld the original decision of the Churchill Downs stewards. Fuller then appealed to gain possession of the winner's tro- phy, contending the first ruling only barred Dancer's Image from any purse money from the race. The Franklin Circuit Court dismissed that appeal on the grounds that it had been filed nine days before' the racing commission order awarding the trophy to Calumet Farm had been officially entered in the commission's records. Fuller said Thursday he had spent more than in le- gal fees on tbe Dancer's Image case, but added: "I don't regret I it. I did my best, the horse did his best." "He won the race." Fuller added. far as I'm con- cerned, he'll always be the win- ner." More sport on page 15 of rejection over television play- by-play and color announcers. Ed Garvey, NFLPA executive director, said the turf study is totally inadequate. He chal- lenged the league to release the raw data to the association's medical adviser for analysis. Garvey also urged the owners to join the association in urging the Consumer Product Safety Commission to set the stand- ards for artificial turf. Ee said the institute's sugges- tion that the NFL ask the turf manufacturers to conduct tests is c o m p a rable "with the thought that General Motors should be solely responsible for pollution control in the automo- tive industry." Garvey said the NFLPA again demanded that there be a moratorium on further in- stallation of synthetic turf, that there be an impartial joint study on artificial grass and that the owners join the players in asking the Consumer Product Safety Commission to set stand- ards. There was no -immediate com- ment from Rozelle. who had told a news conference in New York Wednesday there would not be any moratorium but that the study on the relationship of artificial turf and injuries will continue. Garvey. in his statement, said the Stanford study produced "the results desired by the league." The players association has asked for an independent, jointly-financed studv of syn- thetic turf since September, 1971, and since November, 1971, has called for a moratorium on further installation of artificial grass until studies could be completed. SAYS OWNERS REFUSE j Garvey said the owners have refused to bargain, to join in a study and to implement a mora- torium "despite the fact that over 80 per cent of the NFL players are opposed to synthetic turf." A basic change in preseason roster activity provides that no team may recall a player when he has been placed on waivers as injured. And no team which claims that player on waivers can withdraw the claim. To compensata for that, the league is establishing a pre-sea- son inactive list. A team will be permitted to have as many as three players on it at any one time. Each player on it must miss 16 days. The reason for the changes, NFL executive director Jim Kensil explained, was to elimi- nate the constant shifting around of players on to and off the injured waiver list. Rozelle also said the league has no plans to consider adding any new franchises at least un- til the expansion committee meets next February in Miami. Giants' power wasn't that Bigg By PXT SULLIVAN Herald Sporti Editor If Paul Sullivan gets to wear his contact lenses much more this season, the Alberta Major Baseball League will suffer. Sullivan, Lethbridge ace righthander, chalked up his fifth win of the season against no losses Thursday evening as he treated better than supporters to a seven-hitter as he bested the high-flying Cal- gary Giants 6-2. Sullivan, who has been wear- ing his glasses because the and dust are not suitable to contact lense wearing, shed- his spectacles for the hid- den eye helpers Thursday and what a performance he turned in. The Giants, who had ciimbed past the Lakers into first place in the southern division of the six-team league, had arriv.ed at Henderson Stadium riding the crest of a 30-hit attack in their last two games. One of the 15-hit attacks came against the Lakers Tuesday in Calgary when they won 7-3. "This was a good one.'1 said Laker manager Ron Taylor. "It's always nice to come back right after losing a game like we did in Calgary. When asked how he would sum up the game, Taylor promptly pointed at Sullivan and said "right there is your story." And Sullivan was story, but there were chapters that his teammates helpsd write. In his best performance of the year Sullivan allowed just seven singles. Two of them pro- the Giants with their only runs in the eighth inning, when, for all intents and purposes, the show was over. SULLIVAN SHARP Sullivan fanned nine and walked four to turn in his fifth complete game of the year. Behind him, Sullivan saw his mates turn in a flawless per- formance in the field. For the Giants, it was a dis- appointing outing for their highly-touted righthander Ron Biggs. On paper the big guy was something else. He was 13-1 in a rookie league as a member of the Kansas City Royals. But Thursday evening, he was just another righthander that lasted six of nine innings. Gord Vejprata came en in re- lief of Biggs in the seventh inn- ing while Jim Peterson wrap- pad things up with a three-up, three-down eighth inning. All the damage, however, had been done against Biggs. Lakers jumped on Biggs for two runs in the first inning as Bob Brown led off with a sin- gle and then scored on Wayne Commodore's towering double to the wall in left-centre field. Bryan Maxwell then singled Commodore home and the lo- cals were off and running. In the second inning, Marty Maxwell greeted Biggs with a single, advanced on a fielders choice and then scored on Brown's second straight single. The sixth inning. Biggs' last, saw Bryan Maxwell belt a to djep centrefield and then add the fourth Laker run on a single by Ken Nakama. Marty Maxwell again singled and followed Nakama across home plate following two er- rors by Calgary second base- man Dick Michaels. Bryan Maxwell sparked th2 Laker offence with his triple and a single while Commcdore stroked a double and a single. Brown and Marty Maxwell each added two singles. Three playisrs, Stu Herron, Paul Gallivan and Tom Parks managed two singles each off of Sullivan. i In Edmonton Pat Murphy' gave up only two hits Thurs-, day as Edmonton Tigers dc-, feated Red Deer Generals 2-0 to gain sole possession of first place in the northern division of the Alberta Major Baseball League. Murphy, who struck out 10, gave up an infield hit to Gord Tucker in the fourth and a sin- Boston grounded into a double play to end the inning. The Tigers scored both their runs in tbe fourth inning when they reached Red Deer pitcher Fred Cardwell for four of their eight hits. Canhveli also struck out 10 batters.

Later in the game, with one foot in the Laker dugout, he latched onto a foul ball. Lakers dumped the Giants 6-2 in Alberta Major Baseball League action. It says be careful of Turcotte's mount TORONTO CCP) If success runs in the family, watch out for Noel Turcotte aboard Com- bat Day in Saturday's 114th running of the Queen's Plate. Ron Turtotte breezed into town Thursday and doled out some riding tips to brother Noel who was working Combat Day at Woodbine. Ron, who rode Secretariat to the Triple Crown of racing in the United States this year, told Noel he should always carry a whip. "When Noel argued his horse didn't need a whip, Ron replied: "No, the horse doesn't, but you do." What Other goodies he passed along weren't publicized, but when Noel and Combat Day, a 15-to-l shot, break from the sec- ond position in the race Saturday the advice may be useful. A field of 17 three-year-old, Canadian-foaled horses will compete for the winner's purse, plus 50 guineas presented by the Queen, who will be among the expected watching Canada's top thor- oughbred race. Thursday's draw wasn't par- ticularly kind to the favored filly. La Prevoyante, placing her in 15th spot at the start of the iVi-mile run over a dirt track. The runner-up to Secretariat as horse of the year in the U.S., and Canada's horse of the year as a two-year-old, is regarded as a front runner, but to get there from 15th spot could be tough task for jockey John Le- Blanc. Nevertheless, the odd- smakers listed her as a 2-to-l favorite. Impressive Lady, the other filly in the field, drew the out- side 17th position and was quoted at 8-to-l. She, like La Prevoyante, is a front runner. Last week she finished second to Square Angel in the Cana- dian Oaks, half-a-length ahead of La Prevoyante. One thing going for the fillies in Canada's oldest thoroughbred race is Women's Lib. They will carry 121 pounds, the boys 126. Victorian Prince, with Can- ada's leading jockey Sandy Hawley aboard, drew the rail and some so-called experts said he'd drawn a poor spot. As a horse that likes to come from behind, he runs the risk of Golf league LAKESIDE MEN'S Low gross Cliff Stroh. House of Lethbriege 35. Low ret Gordon Laurie. Sugar Bceters 32.
