Carew is recovering from surgery to remove a detached cartilage and to repair torn liga- ments in his righl knee. New Head Coach Confident GIMLI, Man. (CP) Coach Jim Spavital says his Winnipeg Blue Bombers are "going to surprise some people this year." Making the Western Football Conference playoffs would be a surprise after last year, when the Bombers won only three and tied one of 16 games. Spavital, who left his assistant coaching job with Saskatchewan Roughriders and succeeded tired Joe Zaleski as Bomber head coach, said in an inter- view. "I'm not gonna give you ex- actly what position we're gonna be in, but I will say we'll be in the playoffs." That sounds like all other coaches but if tough training camps make good football teams, watch out for the Bomb- ers. Veteran players and observ- ers say this is the best camp they've attended. After less than a week, 16 players have left voluntarily. The going was too rough. Spavital's philosophy is that players "have to want to win and will pay the price to win." The price is three workouts a day and plenty of contact which guarantees that those who stick will be in top condition. Spavital moved from a secure position in Saskatchewan to a last-place club and an uncertain future. The average tenure of a coach is brief, unless he produces winners. "The challenge attracted me." said Spavital. "Also I saw a club with a good nucleus and thought I'd see what I could do with it. "Last year Joe Zaleski brought in some good men and I think he did as good a job as anyone could have under the circumstances. "A lot of veterans had quit and he was rebuilding. I wanted to see if 1 could build a winner. I think I can." His first job is lo strengthen the linebacking and defensive back spots. The club allowed 359 points last year, the second worst record in Canada behind Montreal's 305 points. All-star Phil Minnick will hold down the middle linebacker po- Shoiv Goes Wednesday Auto Daredevils Here Olie Anderson of Salt Lake City, Utah, and his band of heu-bent-for-leather d r i v e rs can get away with almost any traffic offence.

Rob McLaren and Ed Breed- ing are back with Slrerwin Jarmo of Nebraska, Mike Doyle of Kansas and Laverie Pratt from Ottawa and Calgary trying to break in. When talking about lineback- ers, Spavital smiles and says "I know we'll be improved there. "These guys will be as good as anyore in the league." One hole to plug in the defen- sive backfield was created when 13-year Bomber veteran Ernie Pitts was released. Bombers intercepted only 21 passes last the worst in the Spavital is looking for some new ball hawks. On the line, Bill Whistler will be back at defensive end while Joe Critchlow will probably re- turn at left tackle. The other po- sitions are open, mainly be- cause of the number of top com- petitors in camp, including Ted Collins, former star with Ot- 'tawa. The main goals on defence, says Spavital, are to limit the opposition to 17 points a game and intercept more passes. "We think we have to work on the little things. Being able to read the other team's off- ence, be able to pursue, go for the ball when it's thrown and have a good pass rush." Offensively, Wally Gabler will be No. 1 quarterback although he'll have to cut down his inter- ceptions. In one scrimmage at camp he threw the ball while being rushed and it was intercepted. Spavital said the coaching staff is impressong on Gabler that he "must never put the ball up in the air for grabs, just to go stead and try to find a receiver close to the sidelines and throw it out of bounds." Bob Houmard and Amos Van Pelt look like they've sewed up running back positions with Darwin Gonnerman and Larry Gosney as reserves. However, a latecomer lo camp.

Orioles nnci California Angels battered Milwaukee Brewers 10-3. The Orioles' American League East lead was trimmed to two games over idle New York as they lost their fifth game in the last seven starts. Frank Howard had an early two-run homer for the Senators but Baltimore battled back to tic the score in the fourth. Then the Birds went ahead in (ho .seventh on singles by Brooks Robinson ar.d Ellie Hcndricks and a sacrifice fly by Mark Belanger. Washington's Ed Brinkman opened the eighth with a single arid Howard walked with one out. Reichardt, Sunday's hsro, bounced out but Rodriguez fol- lowed with Ms 12th homer of the year to win the game. Meanwhile Donn Clendenon thinks tile Pittsburgh Pirates are the team to beat in the National League and it seems he's determined to do it all by himself. Cleiidenon drove in the win- ning run with a pinch hit sacri- fice fly Monday Right as the New York Mets rallied in the ninth inning to nip the Pirates 3-2 in a first place showdown between East Division contend- ers. It was the Mets' second vic- tory in five meetings with Pitts- burgh this season. And ex-Pir- zle Clendenon has provided the margin each time in the pinch. The part-time first baseman, hero of the Mets' World Series triumph' over Baltimore last Oc- tober, shook up liis teammates and Manager Gil Hodges on the eve of the season opener at Pittsburgh by picking the Pir- ates to take the pennant. The next day his two-run pinch sin- gle in the llth gave New York a 5-3 victory. WAS BIG HIT His sacrifice fly in the ninth Monday night capped a two-run comeback, nailed down Tom Server's 12lh victory of the sea- son, snapped the Pirates' win- ning streak'at seven and gave the Mets a one-game edge in the division race. Pinch hitters also supplied the punch as the St. Louis Cardinals struck for four runs in the eighth to down Chicago Cubs 8-6 and move past the skidding Cubs into third place in the East, 3Vz games off the pace. Vic Davalillo and Jose Cardenal came off the Cards' bench to deliver two runs apiece in the eighth. Houston Astros wlu'pped Los Angeles Dodgers 10-5 in the only other league action. Philadel- phia Phillies scheduled game at Montreal against the Expos was rained out. The Mete trailed 2-1 when rookie Ken Singleton singled to open the bottom of the ninth. He took third on Art Shamsky's sin- gle and scored the tying run when Dave Marshall bounced a single through the Pirates' drawn-in infield. Joe Gibbon replaced Pitts- burgh starter Steve Blass and hit Ken Boswell with his first pitch, filling the bases with none out. Orlando Pena came out of the bullpen and got pinch hitter Cleon Jones to tap into a force at the plate. But Clendenon, swinging for Jerry Crete, sent Marshall across with a fly to deep right, breaking the knot.

AN1 MEET PEOPLEr _ _J I -i j CHEEKY DEVIL prj I BUS CONDUCTOR Will Face Yankee? cLain Back Wednesday DETROIT (AP) Denny McLain can't possibly be a loser in Ms season's debut Wednesday night. He may lose UK game against New York Yankees at Tiger Stadium, but lie will have the built-in excuse that he needs a couple weeks lo get in the groove following a three-month suspension for association with' pei-sons said to be involved in bookmaking operations. But, it is the two weeks begin- ning Tuesday night that the Ti- gers will need Mm in the groove most, because if Detroit falters during tiiat span any designs of gaining the East Division title of the American League are vir- tually w.asted. Detroit lies in third place, games behind first-place Balti- more Orioles, and five behind the Yankees, the Tigers' oppo- nents in a three-game series be- ginning tonight. SUPENDED APRIL 1 McLain joins the team Wednesday for the first time since Commissioner Bowie Kahn suspended Mm April 1. He is scheduled to go right to work, pitching against New York's Gary Waselewski. If he loses, or lasts j'ust a cou- ple innines, the expected crowd of between and is likely to respond with comments like: "You can't expect him to come right in and pitch a great or "give Mm a little more time and he'll be just what the Tigers need to get them on the right track." But the Tigers must get on the right track now after the Yankee series they journey to Baltimore for a three-game ser- ies.

Detroit returns home Monday to face the fourth-place Boston Red Sox in four night games, then tangles with Baltimore again in four Tiger fans seem to be of two schools of thought on McLain's Cliuvalo Figlils Reno Tonight SEATTLE (AP) The man- ager for tMrd ranked heavy- weight George Chuvalo said Monday the bout between his boxer and Seattle's Charlie Reno will provide Chuvalo with "better training than 100 rounds in a gym." A victory by Chuvalo, rated the favorite over Reno, would strengthen his chances of beat- ing heavyweight George Fore- man, 1968 Olympic games heavyweight champion, in Aug- ust. suspension, which was given for what Ktfim said was Denny's as- sociation with illegal bookmak- ers in Flint, Mich., in 1967. Some say; "He's a great pitcher. What did he do wrong? Everyone gambles. He should't have been suspended at all but Kuhn just had to show IMS au- thority." Others my: "He should havs gotten more than a three-mouth suspension. That was just a slap on the wrist. For what he did to baseball he should have been suspended for at least a year." If McLain, who has won 114 games in six seasons with De- troit, is a hero Wednesday, rho fans more than likely will put aside the suspension question and again start putting pen- nant winning bumper sticker slogans on their cars, just as in 1968. McLain has been working out at his home in Lakeland, Fal., by pitching to high school bat- ters.
