The Lakers came to terms with non-imports Wayne Com- modore and Al Ferchuk, who'll join forces with Bob Brown, Paul Sullivan and Rob Roy -who were signed earlier. Commodore, who stands 6' 2" and tips the scale at 198 pounds, plans to secure his familiar right field spot for the second straight year. In his initial season in the AMBL. Commodore batted a respectable .285 and led the league in two departments. He led the league with the most doubles by stroking 12 two- baggers in 28 games and also got hit by five wild pitches to top that category. Commodore is looking for a better season at the plate and features field boss Ron Taylor in his plans.

The 6' 2'' righthander regis- tered a 4-3 record last season but was hampered somewhat with a sore shoulder. In seven starting assign- ments, he went the distance six times. He was also used as a relief pitcher on a num'jer of occas- ions and finished the season with 133 innings pitched, sec- ond only to Cliff Balau of Red Deer Elks who hurled 140 inn- ings last >ear. In the ]33 innings, he record- ed an earned-run-average of 3.04, fanned batters and gave up only 15 walks. j If his pitching fails, the Lak- ers can use the lanky 373-pound- er as a hliter.

(CP) If it's up to director Ccley Hall, then Vic Stasiuk's days would be numbered as coach of the Van- couver Canucks of the National Hockey League. "We definitely have to have a new coach." Hall said Monday during a discussion of the Ca- nucks' management problems. Hall, a club director who ac- quired considerably more clout in the club's affairs under the terms of a loan to owner Torn Scallen, was talking about the difficulty of latching on to a new general manager. "It's tough getting people in- terested in the job here because of ail the bad publicity we've had. "There's a possibility we may have to go with what we've got, so maybe we'li have to settle for just a coach." Bud Poile resigned as general manager earlier this year be- cause of illness. Former coach Hal Laycoe is interim general manager. POILE'S HAD ENOUGH Poile has indicated he wants no part of the general man- ager's job again, and said recently he is prepared to defer to Hall when it comes to recom- mending a general manager and coach. Stasiuk, whose contract ex-1 pires this month, has had no word on his future. Hall indicated that no major announcements will come from Wednesday's directors meeting. "I had some ideas I wanted to present to Scallen, since he and I jointly call the shots, but I doubt if lie wants to come up he said. "So I guess we'll be discussing finances mostly." Scallen was recently con- victed in Vancouver of theft of million by conversion and is- suing a false prospectus. He is free on bail pending an appeal. Ypsilaiiti in trouble YPSILANTI, Mich. (AP) The Little League office in Wil- liamsport, Pa., revoked the Ypsilanti Little League's ter Monday because the local chapter voted to defy a national rule barring girl players. Bob Taylor, local Little League vice-president, said the Ypsilanti chapter was advised by telephone that its charter was being revoked, effective immediately, because Carolyn King, 12, is being retained as a team member. Taylor reported the national office also said it is sending people here to organize a new franchise with new personnel. He said the Ypsilanti Little League would seek a court in- junction aimed at halting the action by the national office. Taylor said he couldn't under- stand how the charter could be revoked until Carolyn actually played in a game because the local chapter has not yet offi- i daily violated a rule. I The action also nullified Sun- day's decision by Ypsilanti Little League coaches and offi- cials uho voted 8-2 to keep the chapters first girl player. The local chapter had agreed not to play the outfielder until May 15. ing goal-scorer with 13. He shares the scoring leadership with 21' points, the same num- ber as Dennis Hull of ths Black Hawks, but the Chicago left winger has five fewer goals. One more goal by Cournoyer will equal the record 14 scored by left winger Frank Mahovlich of the Canadiens in ths 1971 play- offs. TORN MUSCLE Cournoyer admits he has skated with pain since he was checked early last January by burly defenceman Ted Harris of Minnesota North Stars. But he says he has learned to live with the injury and to adjust accord- ingly. 'The doctor tells me the only thing that will curs it is Cournoyer said. "So, I'll have to wait until the season is over for that." The chunky, five-foot, seven- inch winger, missed 11 games because of the injury this sea- son, but still managed 40 goals in the -67 games he shy of the team high set by centre Jacques Lemaire. "The way it bothers me now is that it takes me longer to warm Cournoyer said. "If I don't gel a gcod skate in the prs- game practice then it seems it takes me a while to get going in the game." The Hawks have paid particu- lar attention to the 170-pound Cournoyer throughout the series and in the first three games used defencemen, converted to left wingers, to defend against him. "I've played against (John) Marks, (Dick) Redmond, and (Jerry) he said. "They might not be as fast as Dennis Hull, but they sure can check and hit you when they get the chance." LITTLE SUCCESS But H was obvious from re- marks made by members of the Chicago team after Canadiens 4-0 win Sunday that the Hawks have had little success hitting Cournoyer. I haven't seen spcsd like him said Phil Russell, the Black Hawks rookie defen- cc-Tian. "I'm not used to that." Ralph Backslrom, the former Csnadien and now centering the Hawks third line, said "we'd have to break his of them, I don't think one would be enough." The Montreal team skated lightly for 40 minutes Monday in preparation for tonight's game. Defenceman Jacques Laperrierc, recovered from a broken nose acquired in the openar here April 29, showed up for the first time since being in- jured, but said he was told by the doctor he probably won't get a chance to play unless a sixth game is necessary Thurs- day night in Chicago. Cournoyer backs off when mention is made of the possi- bility of him whining the Conn Smythe Trophy. The trophy is awarded an- nually to the top performer in the playoffs. Locals sharp to swim win Nine members of the Leth- bridge Amateur Swim Club helped a provincial swim team score a victory over Montana in the annual Alberta-Montana Swim Meet staged in Havre, Mont, last weekend. The Alberta contingent which consisted of swimmers from Lethbridge, Calgary, Red Deer and Medicine Hat defeated the Montana team 341-256 in the two-day event. The Alberta taam not only earned eight of 16 relay races but managed to take away most of the individual events.

Shirley Van Dyk and T i in Myers aided the cause as they both racked up a first, second and a third place finish while Wendy Tuk added a first, sec- ond and a fifth. Marilyn Van Dyk came home with two thirds while Barry Emerson, Henry Van Egteren and Rob Tietz managed a third and fourth place outing. Van Egteren led the trio with two fourths. Tim Emerson finished off the local's performance with a fourth and a fifth. Meanwhile, a contingent of 11 swimmers represented the club at the Calgary Winter Club di- vision two invitational meet in Calgary, and came away with their share of the silverware and ribbons. Three locals, Cindy Gleb, Jan Lavkulik and Jeff Rutledge earned first place finishes.

Mark Babick chipped in with two seconds as he chased the, winner in the butterfly and freestyle. Sharon Sekiya was third in the freestyle while Helen Mar- ley was third in the breast- stroke.
