Duguid's rink remained undefeated after they stopped Prince Edward Island's rink skipped by Kip Ready. Northern Ontario skip not giving up Duguid maintains his unblemished mark By AL McNEIL QUEBEC (CP) - Manitoba's Don Duguid led the field with a perfect 3-0 record today as the Canadian curling championship entered its next-to-last day. But Bill Tetley of Northern Ontario still hasn't given up hope of catching the defending champion from Winnipeg even though he concedes that Duguid's rink "has been going real well." Tetley, a 37-year-old accountant from Thunder Bay, boasted a 4-1 record entering today's three rounds of the 11-rink, round-robin competition. This despite the fact it is his first trip to the Canadian championship since 1957. "We're still not playing well and we're messing our way through," Tetley said, after an easy 10-4 victory against the Ontario rink of Bob Charlebois of Toronto in Wednesday night's sixth round.

He died Sept. 14 from the wounds. The state never established a firm motive in the case, but attempted to indicate at the trial that DePaula no longer wanted Garafola as his manager. At the time of. the shooting, DePaula, Garafola and four other men were on trial in federal court in Newark, charged in connection with the theft ot $75,000 in copper from Port-Newark.

The Northern Ontario rink broke Smale's consecutive streak at four in Wednesday's fifth round with a 13-12 extra-end upset. Bob Pickering of Avonlea, representing Saskatchewan, followed Tetley with a 4-2 mark after six rounds, while Charlebois and Kip Ready of Prince Edward Island's Charlottetown Curling Club both bad 3-3 marks. Quebec's Bill Ott of Montreal had a record of two wins and three losses going into today's rounds, while Alberta's Matt Baldwin from Edmonton was 2-4.' New Brunswick's representative-Paul Bordage of Moncton -and Newfoundland's Bob Cole from St. John's, had each won one game and lost four. Truro's Frank Hoar and Ms Nova Scotia rink were still searching for their initial victory after five consecutive losses. Today's rounds were scheduled for 6 a.m., 11:30 p.m. and 5 p.m. MST. B.C. MET N.B. Today's morning round featured B.C. against New Brunswick; Duguid and Tetley met; Newfoundland clashed with P.E.I.; Alberta tackled Nova Scotia; while Quebec met Ontario, and Saskatchewan had the bye. "That was a tough game against B.C.," Tetley said of his Wednesday triumph. "There were lots of misses on both sides." He said Duguid is going "real well," but the Manitoba skip still has to go through Saskatchewan and British Columbia on the final day. Duguid agreed with Tetley's assessment and noted that both Saskatchewan and B.C. have byes today while he is faced with a three-game schedule. "That's tough," Duguid said. "We always seem to be three or four points up and we don't do anything fancy unless we're down." Manitoba appeared to be pushed in the early part of its sixth-round game against P.E.I., but walked away with a 16-6 final score. However, Duguid had had a more difficult time in the afternoon round, scraping past Alberta 6-5 in the best-played game to date. It's been a good year so far for underdogs By BOB GREEN MIAMI (AP) - If recent history is any guide, a longshot has a good chance to take top prize in the $150,000 Doral-East-ern Open golf tournament which gets underway today. As usual, most pre-touma-ment speculation centers on the established players-led b y Jack Nicklaus, Arnold Palmer and Gary Player-as the favorites for the $30,000 first-place cheque. But the last two men to conquer the demanding, watery Blue Monster course at the Doral Country Club were scoring their first professional victories. Last year it was Mike Hill and the year before it was Tom Shaw, currently the year's leading money winner. Two men already have scored first-time victories this season. J. C. Snead in the Tucson Open and Fred Marti in. the satellite Ontario Open. SECOND STRING READY And there's a large group pounding on the victory door, airy of whom could break through-Dave Eichelberger, DeWitt Weaver and Jerry Heard, all among the first 15 money winners this season, along with John Schlee, John Miller and Hale Irwin. Still, the more established players have to be given the nod in tine 72-hole event, with a bulky field of 156 of the world's best shoemakers ready to challenge the 7,028-yard par 72 layout. If there Is a single favorite, it's probably Player, the tough little physical culture enthusiast from South Africa. "I'm playing the best golf of Short sport SEEKING RAISE PONCE, P.R. (AP) - Orlando Cepeda, the Atlanta Braves' first baseman, said Wednesday that his team "does not want to negotiate" with his lawyer on a two-year contract, and added that the Braves have offered him just a token increase in salary for 1971, The Puerto Rican slugger said that "they offered me less than $100,000 and I want at least $105,000." ? ? ? NOT INTERESTED TORONTO (CP) - The executive vice-president of Maple Leaf Gardens said Wednesday the Gardens is not interested in being host to any home games of Buffalo Braves of the National Basketball Aasociation. Harold Ballard said in an interview that the Gardens is not interested in putting out any of the attractions it now houses "for a ham-and-egg sport." ? ? ? AXEMEN FAVORED WOLFVTLLE, N.S. (CP) -Acadia University Axemen are early favorites to win the five-team Canadian initercollegiate basketball tournament which opens here tonight. The Axemen, with a 26-2 won-lost record this season, meet Loyola University in the opener tonight while Manitoba plays Waterloo Lutherlan University in the second game. ? ? ? SUING NETWORK NEW YORK (Reuter) - The financial backers of the Muhammad Ali-Joe Frazier championship fight sued the Mutual Broadcasting System Wednesday for $10 million damages and asked for an injunction to prevent the airing of round-by-round bulletins of the March 8 fight. The suit against MBS seeks to prevent the network from going ahead with announced plans to broadcast the bulletins. He was leery about drug seminar Elston Howard learned a lot FORT LAUDERDALE, Fla. (AP) - Elston Howard of New York Yankees went into baseball's first drug education session with some reservations, but he frankly admitted Wednesday that the seminar turned him on. "I was leery, I had to admit," said the former catcher, now a coach with the club. "But it changed my thoughts. I learned a lot - that young kids should realize how harmful drugs are and change their minds about them. "I learned a lot about how they affect your body - something I can pass along to the kinds in Harlem and New Jersey. And maybe I can get in a program to help young kids. Young people seeing sports figures working against the drug problem might change their minds." Howard said he changed his mind when he stood up at the session and asked baseball commissioner Bowie K u h n whether the program - the first such organked program ui team sports history - had been provoked by books written by former athletes Jim Bouton and Dave Meggyesy. Bouton, a former pitcher with the Yankees, and Meggyesy, one-time linebacker for football's St. Louis Cardinals wrote books recently that contained disputed statements about drug use in their respective sports. "I thought we were having the program because those two fellows said something in a book," Howard said. "But it's a completely different story. The commissioner said the program was planned before the books and had nothing to do with them." DRUGS FORMALLY BANNED At the first session of the program Monday, baseball set a formal ban on drugs, including artificial stimulants, and discussed disciplinary action in the event of any abuses. "I had some reservations myself about the program," said Yankees manager Ralph Houk, "but, without doubt, I benefitted and I think the youth of American can benefit from it. Maybe we can help stop this problem spreading across America. "I think now I can help a kid a lot more than before; discuss the problem more thoroughly and knowledgeably with him." Houk also discounted any thoughts that baseball was contending with any kind of drug problem at the major league level. "The whole thing was misconstrued - people thought it was in baseball," said Houk. "But it was just what it was intended to be, an educational program to help young people. "I know we don't have players on drugs. It's like breaking curfew. I'd know if any player was. You live with people - you know what they're doing. my life, possibly as well as I can play," he said after finishing fourth in last week's PGA championship. Nicklaus took the PGA championship, but pointed out that it's very difficult to keep it going for two weeks in a row. Palmer, probably the most popular player the game has ever known, always is a threat. He's won once and finished fourth or better in half his six starts this season. Ponoka seeking leave of absence RED DEER (CP) - Ponoka Stampeders, out of the playoffs and stung financially for the third consecutive season, have asked the she - team Alberta Junior Hockey League for a one - year leave of absence, league officials announced. "This does not mean the Stampeders are withdrawing from the league," said Art White, president of the Ponoka Hockey Association which sponsors the club. "It means we are asking for a leave of absence with every intention of coming back in the 1972-73 season." White refused to say what would happen if the league does not grant the request. Attendance at Stamperers' games declined and the club lost approximately $5,000 this year, bringing total losses over the past three seasons to $15.-000. "There will not be another summer of indecision as there was last year," White said. "We did not do an adequate scouting job and the result was an inexperienced hockey club. It seems to draw fans, you need a winner. We didn't." Ponoka averaged about 750 fans per game in the 1969-70 season with several crowds exceeding 1,200. White said attendance this season was cut "by half." This was not enough to support the $30,000 annual budget which had been trimmed "as closely as possibly." The only salaried member of the club was coach Gordon McLeod. Stampeders had a working agreement with the Medicine Hat Tigers of the Western Canada Hockey League to whom they lost five members of last season's first - place club, including AJHL scoring champion Stan Weir who ranks eighth in WCHL scoring this year with 48 goals and 51 assists. "We talked about the Tigers taking over the Ponoka club," White said, "but could not reach an agreement. They declined to put any further money into the club, their reasoning being . . . that if we cannot generate interest in the club, how can they do it from 400 miles away." The Stampeders are leaving the door open to individual or groups interested in helping the club, said White. This is the first time in four years that the club has missed the playoffs. .'|^ 1.1.1.
