Lethbridge Herald (Newspaper) - March 16, 1971, Lethbridge, Alberta Tuesday, March 16, 1971 - THB LETHBRIDGE HERALD - 7 CAUGHT UP IN THIIR OLOVIS - Paul Chretien oppear* to bt looking to referee Sammy lufttpring ot help untangle him from Ronold MacEachern during a hectic confrontation at Toronto'* junior open boxing championships Monday. Files suit against baseball Lady umpire wants in NEW YORK (AP) - Bern-ice Gera files a $25 million suit today against organized baseball because, in the words of her lawyer, it has "virtually destroyed her career as a baseball umpire." The suit was to be filed in Manhattan Supreme Court. Mrs. Gera scheduled a news conference. The lawyer, Mario Biiaggi, released a copy of the" suit and bis prepared remarks in advance. Defendants4 listed in the document are baseball commissioner Bowie Kuhn, the New York-Pennsylvania Professional Baseball League and Vincent M. McNamara, its president, and the National Association of Professional Baseball Leagues and its president, Philip Piton. Mrs. Gera, a graduate of umpiring schools, contends she has been denied employment because she's a woman. SHE STRUCK OUT' Biaggi said she took her case to the State Human Rights Commission, which he said three times ordered she be hired, "but she struck out." "Organized baseball is definitely off-base," said Biaggi. In the joint news conference with Mrs'. Gera, Biaggi contended: "The constitutional rights of a woman have been denied. This woman is Bern-ice Gera, the first certified woman basebal umpire. "Bernice has made baseball her life. She eats, sleeps and thinks baseball. Mrs. Gera applied for, was accepted, attended and was graduated from baseball umpiring school on July 17, 1967. "She was hired by baseball on Aug. 31, 1968. They signed a contract. Then they can- celled the contract," Biaggi continued. "She was hired again on July 25, 1969, by Vincent M. McNamara, president of the New York - Pennsylvania League as an umpire. "But Philip Piton, the president of the National Association of Baseball Leagues, sent her a telegram on July 31, 1969, invalidating her contract." Bell High River Baseball playoffs to take on a football look? suggests a six-division set By THE ASSOCIATED PRESS Baseball is feeling expansive -but not that expansive! It's considering changing its' shape in the standings-but it won't allow a new shape on the diamond. While the male of the species continued to work himself into shape with another slate of exhibitions Monday, one female member slapped the game with a $25 million damage suit after being rejected as an umpire. Later in the day, American League president Joe Cronin disclosed that the majors are studying a plan to split the American and National leagues into three four-team divisions. But, he added: "It has � long way to go and it won't come up soon." Bernice Gera, a 39-year-old Long Island housewife, told a news conference: "I understand the age limit is155. I'm only 39. I'll keep trying until I'm 55-or until I'm 80." The defendants in the suit filed in New York State Supreme Court, are baseball commissioner Bowie Kuhn, the New York-Pennsylvania Professional Baseball League, Vincent McNamara, the league president, the National Association of Professional Baseball Leagues, and its president, Philip Piton. Marlands win Lethbridge Pee Wee Mar-lands belted High River twice on the weekend and emerged with the Zone five championship. Marlands, now advance against the winner of Zone six. . The locals came out flying Friday night and won 8-3 at home. They travelled to High River and things weren't much better for the home club as the Marlands skated to a 9-4 win.

Ray Djuve, with two, and Jim Harde, replied for High River. Marlands got the nod on two of three minor penalties in the game.. Sunday, things were a little rougher as Magee scored three times. High River picked up 15 penalties while the Marlands were guilty of six infractions. Miyashiro chipped in with two goals for the locals.

The race, a major European fixture, was scheduled for early June. Hamilton wins title The Hamilton Junior High School Hornets had an exceptionally fine year as they concluded their 1971 basketball season by winning the City Championship play-offs last weekend. Friday night the Hornets edged the Paterson Tigers 33-31 to capture the championship in two straight games. Jn their first encounter of the best-of-three series, the Hornets scored an easy 48-30 victory. In order to reach the finals the Hornets eliminated the Wilson Junior High School Warriors with easy 42-32 and 39-22 victories. Wilson was the only team that blemished the Hornets' regular season play record giving them their only loss. The Hornets also triumphed at the Parkside Invitational Tournament in Redcliff and the Alexandra Tournament in Medicine Hat and were finalists in the Wilson Basketball Tournament in Lethbridge. In July 1969 Mrs. Gera received a contract to umpire in the N.Y.-Penn League. Piton then invalidated the pact, contending she couldn't meet the requirements. Walter 0 'M a 11 e y, who dragged baseball into one form of expansion by moving his Dodgers from Brooklyn to Los Angeles in 1957, came up with the six-division concept, a virtual carbon copy of the National Football League alignment. Instead of the present single playoff in each league, there would be two, involving the three division winners and the team with the best runner-up record. In more conventional activity, the fielders literally kicked in with help when the opposition batters couldn't provide the Roundup of bowling CAPRI BOWL WED.

Phone 328-5973 "The Indian boys feel there is racial discrimination at work against them here," said a spokesman for the Tomahawks, a team from Morley on the Stony Reserve, just west of Calgary. However, Allan Waddell, secretary - treasurer of the league and a member of the Spring-bank Spurs, said today: "They're hollering discrimination, but you just try to work with them and you'll find out who discriminates against who. "They discriminate against the white guys more than we do against the Indians." Disagreement arose after a" playoff game between the Tomahawks and a team from Cochrane. The players are in the 18 and over age category. Indians complained the referee did not consult with the goal Judge concerning a protested goal, and that when the game ended in a tie, the referee called for a sudden - death overtime when it should have been a 10-minute period. When the Tomahawks lodged a protest less than 48 hours after the game, league officials upheld the Indian complaint and called for another game. Then the Cochrane team lodged a protest against the protest, and league officials changed their stand and supported Cochrane. League officials then refused to consider "a protest against the protest against the protest," Indian players complained. Instead, the league was disbanded and funds were divided among the clubs. No official reason for disbanding was made public. "There's something that's not working properly here and we don't like it at all." said Lawrence Crawley, recreation director for Stony Reserve. He said the Tomahawks are going to hire a lawyer to sort the situation out according to Canadian Amateur Hockey Association rules. Two of the five teams ore from Morley, and one each from Cochrane, Springbank and Exshaw.
