Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - June 29, 1974, Lethbridge, Alberta Saturday, Junt LETHBRIDQE Pat Sullivan A bit of everything A headline in a newspaper in one of the Canadian Football League cities said "CFL season will start regardless" It will, as of Thursday, and all parties seem quite satisfied Me too, now the Ottawa Rough Riders can embark on a straight Grey Cup and for the second time in as many years they will defeat Edmonton Eskimos in the Canadian classic at Vancouver What about my beloved Stampeders from Calgary? Look for the Big Red Machine in 1975 when they host the Grey Cup If early reports are any indication, the famed Calgary Stampede will look like a church picnic in comparison to the National Drunk And speaking of hosting, one of the best kept secrets in a long time is the scheduled Super Series to decide Alberta's representatives in the Caradian senior baseball championships You'll recall it was in Lethbridge last year and the Lakers downed Leduc to form the nucleus of the Alberta team Guess what? It's here again, so they tell me, next weekend, the 6th and 7th Your guess is as good as mine as to who will play in it Barb Home, defending Alberta women's golf champion and truly one of the finest women golfers ever to come out of Lethbridge, is taking part in the La Canadienne golf championships at Montreal... She is only one of six Canadian amateurs invited to match shots with the best of the Ladies Professional Golf Association tour Barb tuned up for her trip east by playing 18 holes with her favorite golf teacher, Mike Douglas Dutchie, it seems, still has a few shots left in his bag of tricks as he shot a cool 68 at the Henderson Lake Layout. Greg Boddy is the latest National Hockey League player to join the one year here-next year there league Boddy is expected to sign with the San Diego Mariners of the World Hockey Association Boddy played with Vancouver Canucks, Los Angeles Kings and Montreal Canadiens Bobby Winkles got his walking papers from the California Angels of the American Baseball League and now Charlie Fox of the San Francisco Giants has stepped down... Unlike the Winkles case, Fox stepped down of his own choice, there was no pressure put on him The fact that they charged he and his wife to get into Candlestick Park on Thursday was simply a mistake. I don't know how many of you know what a headline is Tt is the dark type that tells you something about the story you are about to read They have, in my opinion, some of the greatest headline writers in the business working for the Sporting News Things like "Dodger rivals puff at Hough's knuckle stufi" or how about this one describing the Houston Astros' recent tailspin? "Astros' flight plan scrubbed as losses kayo power system" And I thought I was great with "Bobby played a Hull of a game" or Gordie and sons showed them Howe" Golf league COUNTRY CLUB GOLF Low gross Dennis Con- nolly.

Ohio (AP) Tom Weiskopf has won. more than on the Professional Golfers' Association tour this year, but for him that's peanuts. Last year the 31-year-old Columbus resident clubbed his way to the bank with "My playing has not been very effective." said Weiskopf in what has to be considered a gross understatement for a golfer who won five major tournaments in 1973. including the British Open and the World Series of Golf. Weiskopf was back on his home state last weekend to compete in the American Golf Classic at Akron's Firestone Country Club. He recorded a 286 with six other golfers and won Weiskopf said his poor showing this year is due to an injured left hand. He said he had been hampered by ligament damage in the area of his thumb and wrist. happened in January." he said. "I don't remember doing anything to cause it. I just woke up one morning and the pain was there." NEEDS TO BE IN CAST Weiskopf's best finish this year was second in the Masters. "My hand didn't hurt then. I received three cortisone shots and the pain disappeared. But. you can't keep taking medica- tion. The doctor agrees that the best thing for the hand would be to put it in a cast for six to eight weeks." DON KIRKHAM INSURANCE AGENCIES LTD.

I Gaylord does it, wins 14th in row THE ASSOCIATED PRESS Heavy rains held up the start of the game between Cleveland Indians and Boston Red Sox for an hour Friday night, but they didn't bother Gaylord Perry. The Cleveland pitcher went out and stopped Boston 2-1 on three singles for his 14th consecutive triumph, just two short of the American League record. Not only did the Red Sox suffer their third loss in a row when Dick Drago walked Leron Lee with two out in the ninth inning and George Hendrick doubled him home, but they may have lost all-star catcher Carlton Fisk for the season. In scoring the winning run, Lee slid into Fisk, who was blocking the plate, and the catcher suffered ligament It wasn't easy I Casey Stengel went through all sorts of contortions to get his spikes on for today's Old-Timers' game in New York. The Old-Timers recall I good old days gone byj By DAVE ANDERSON New York Times Service NEW YORK Except for Casey Stengel, they are names that live mostly in oblivion. They are the'old-timers of the New York Mets, to be honored at Shea Stadium in connection with the team's 10th anniversary season there. But the true old- timer of the Mets remains with them. And he's only 29 years old. Ed Kranepool is the only player in captivity to have been with the Mets in each of their 13 seasons. As such, he is the only one to have performed with or for the 17 men who will be anointed with applause. For some, an introduction will generate more applause at Shea than any of their accomplishments ever did. For others, particularly Stengel, it will be a return to the glory that once was, even in the national comedy of last place. Ed Kranepool remembers them all. some more than others. Ed Charles, third baseman "We call him the glider because of the way- he threw. Rip Sewell must've taught him how." Jack Fisher, pitcher "Fat Jack was always spitting tobacco all over the place. In the clubhouse he needed a spittoon." Jack Hamilton, pitcher "Spitball Jack, a card shark. He liked poker. He beat all us young guys. Gret Goossen played half a year for free just to get even for what he lost to Jack in the poker games." Chuck Hiller. second baseman "Iron hands. He was a helluva hitter but he never caught too many balls. He never found the key to unlock his hands. You couldn't play him on rainy days. His hands would rust." Johnny Lewis, outfielder "He was a good outfielder, a good prospect. But he hurt his arm and couldn't throw." Al Jackson, pitcher (1962-65. "The Little Cat. Casey once told him to slant his hat down over his eyes so baserunners on first couldn't tell where he was looking first base or home." Hal Reniff. pitcher "Roly-poly guy. He was with the Yankees mostly so I never got to know him too well." Ron Swoboda, outfielder "Rocky was my business partner, a great guy. The first couple years, they could've put a tent around him, he was such a circus act. He became a good outfielder through determination. On his great catch in the World Series, he made a wrong play that turned into a great play. He should've made sure the ball didn't go through instead of trying for the catch, but he made the catch. The best thing now is that or all he used to talk, now he's getting paid for it as a CBS newscaster." Bob Taylor, catcher "He was a big bonus player we got from Milwaukee, a gentleman. He just didn't play much." Ron Taylor, pitcher "He always loved children. At a function, he was always the last one to leave because he'd sign autographs and talk to the kids forever. He's studying to be a doctor now. I wouldn't be surprised If he were to go into pediatrics." Eddie Bressoud, shortstop "He wasn't with us very long. He didn't have lime to say much." Frank Thomas, outfielder "The Big Donkey hit home runs in the Polo Grounds and he did crazy things. He bet guys S100 that he could catch their hardest throw barehanded at 100 feet. He did it in a two-handed swinging motion to take the sting out of it.-He even bet Willie Mays when Willie was at his best. Willie let one go. but the big donkey caught it. Willie was so embarrassed, he didn't want to pay up." Bill Wakefield. pitcher "He did a good job for us in 1964. he was in like 60 games, but the next year he was back in the minors. He never knew why." Casey Stengel, manager "His greatest line was even.- year at the All- Star break, he'd say. 'go home with your family and relax, but take your records with you." meaning don't forget how bad vou'vc been. Baker signs with Lions VANCOUVER (CP) British Columbia Lions signed defensive end Bill Baker to a multi-year Canadian Football League contract Friday. Baker, 29, played out his option last season with the Saskatchewan Roughriders. He was subsequently traded to Toronto Argonauts for Steve Smear and Pete Watson.

Winger will win World Cup FRANKFURT, Germany (AP) George Raynor, one of the most successful coaches in World Soccer Cup history, predicts the 1974 tournament will be won by a winger. "Watch Johnny Rep of Hol- land and Grzegorz Lato of Po- land." he said. "They could be the key men in this World Cup." Raynor. an Englishman who has never coached in his native country, scored an amazing success as coach of the all-amateur Swedish team when the World Cup was held in Sweden in 1958. The Swedes. against all predictions, reached the final. By extolling wingers in an interview. Raynor went against popular fashion. Most of the teams Sffll in contention don't use wingers in the old- fashioned sense of the word. "But wingers have always won the World Cup ever since 1950." Raynor said. Raynor said the men he had named were not necessarih the best players on their teams, but they are proven match winners. Lato shares top scoring hon- ors with team-mate Andrzej Szarmach with five goals, and Rep has scored four. Meanwhile, Jairzinho. Brazil's winning winger of 1970. is playing for the defending champions again. Lt is possible for Lato and Rep to be on opposing sides in the final at Munich's Olympic Stadium July 7. Poland and Holland are in different groups in the second round, and both are well placed to win their group and advance.
