Hunt optimistic about new year WEST PALM BEACH, Fla. (CP) - Ron Hunt, acquired from San Francisco Giants in the off season, reported to Montreal Expos spring-training camp here a day after his 30th birthday and says he is optimistic for the coming National League baseball season. An aggressive, crew-cut second baseman, Hunt has had eight years of National League experience and in the last three with the Giants he had batting averages of .250, .262 and .281. He is expected to take over second base duties for the Expos. Expos sent first basman Dick McDonald to San Francisco in the deal for Hunt McDonald was acquired from New York Yankees of the American League last year for pitcher Gary Wazlewski and spent the 1970 season with Montreal's International League affiliate at Winnipeg. When Hunt was with the Giants, he felt the Expos looked like a "good ball club to me." "They have some good hitters Baldwin beaten in second game Smale, Pickering win twice QUEBEC (CP) - Ontario's Bob Oharlebois hopes that by today his awe of the Canadian curling championships will have disappeared. Oharlebois, the 24-y e a r -o 1 d rookie skip from Toronto's Avonlea curling club, found out Monday what he describes as the enormity of the 11-rink, round-robin national final. First of all, the luck of the draw had him pitted against Manitoba's Don Duguid of Winnipeg in the morning's opening round. Then he realized it was the first time he had curled in an arena. Charlebois appeared to be holding his own against the defending Canadian and world champion Manitoba rink-until the sixth end. It was then he suffered his lapse and allowed Duguid to move from a 4-4 tie to an eventual 13-7 victory. However, the Ontario skip re- and in Claude Raymond they have one of the finest relief pitchers in baseball. "There's one thing in particular I noticed about them They're out there determined to win all the time; never just to put in an appearance." He attributes this will to win to manager Gene Mauch, whose reputation for aggressiveness is well known in baseball circles. That aggressiveness fits in with Hunt's own style. Last season he set a National League record for getting hit by pitches. He accomplished that dubious feat 127 times, breaking the previous mark of 118. Once, in 1969, he was hit by pitches three times in one game. He crowds the plate when batting and has the habit of dropping his shoulder while at bat, a position which leaves him staring down inside fastbaUs as they hit him. Hunt started his National League career with the hapless New York Mets.

TWO RECORDS CLEAN After two rounds, Saskatchewan's Bob Pickering from Avonlea and Duke Smale, British Columbia's representative, from Prince George had perfect 2-0 records. Manitoba, which had the bye in the Monday night round, was 1-0. along with the Thunder Bay rink of Bill Tetley from Northern Ontario. Tetley had the bye in the opening round. Charlebois, along with Alberta's veteran skip Matt Baldwin from Edmonton, Quebec's Bill Ott of the Outremont Curling Club in Montreal, and Charlotte-town's Kip Ready, representing Prince Edward Island, were grouped with one win and one loss. Three rinks were still looking for their first victory in today's third and fourth rounds, scheduled for 9 a.m. and 2:30 p.m. MST.

Bowering suffered a knee injury in Newfoundland's first game. He said from his hotel room Monday night he must have x-rays today and will be out of action until at least Wednesday.

HAVE NO TROUBLE Despite the fact both skips expressed dissatisfaction with ice conditions early Monday, both Saskatchewan's Pickering and Smale of B.C. experienced no difficulty in defeating their second-round opponents. Pickering's rink whipped Alberta 14-9 in the night game after it appeared his rink would make a runaway of the game. They blanked Baldwin for the first four ends as they built up an impressive 7-0 lead and forced the Alberta skip to scramble the rest of the way. Smale's foursome methodically ground out an easy 16-6 win against Nova Scotia. In addition to the Saskatchewan, B.C., and Ontario victories, P.E.I, was the extra-end winner against New Brunswick 14-3 while Northern Ontario defeated Quebec 12-9. First round action saw P.E.T. drop a 11-10 decision to Quebec, Saskatchewan nip Nova Scotia 8-7, B.C. struggle to its' 11-8 win against Newfoundland, Alberta trim New Brunswick 13-7 and Manitoba hand Charlebois his 13-7 loss.
