John Ken- j nedy also hit what appeared to be a single. This time, right fielder John Jeter lost his foot- ing and, by the time he recov- ered, Kennedy had a triple and the Red Sox had two runs.

Drapeau reassures taxpayers By GOrOON GRANT Canadian Press Sports Editor TORONTO (CP) Mayor Jean Drapeau reiterated Mon- day that the 1976 Olympic Games in Montreal won't cost Canadian taxpayers a fact, he said Canadians soon will be discussing how to spend the surplus the Games will create. Drapeau told about 2.000 dele- gates to the annual meeting of the Association of Canadian Ad- vertisers the Games will be self-financing. He didn't elaborate on how the Games would create a sur- plus, but stickhandled his way around being asked about defi- cits by asking himself ques- tions. He said he'd outline how Mon- treal successfully bid for the Games and then answer ques- tions from the audience "al- though I'll ask the first three myself." The first question he asked was how much the Games would cost the taxpayer. he said. Drapeau said he'd guaranteed the federal government he wouldn't ask for funds if the Games organization was allowed to raise money by sell- ing stamps and coins and hold- ing a lottery. Later in his talk about fi- nances he backtracked a little from his remark by asking: "How can there be a deficit if all the revenues and self-financing programs run un- til the deficit is In an interview he said the sale of stamps and coins and the lottery would be continued after the Games had ended. The organizing committee has said it will raise million through the sale of Olympic commemorative coins. S10 mil- lion through the sale of stamps and million from a lottery. Drapeau said there would be four lotteries "each providing S8 million net." There would be one this year and one in each of the next three years. Whether the lottery would be run federally or "multi-provin- cially" had not yet been worked out. Legislation now was being prepared to decide the best way to issue coins and stamps. Asked how much the main Olympic stadium would cost, he said "thats a loaded question" and didn't answer. He did say the cost won't be known until after it is com- pleted. Giving an estimate would be unwise because when "we ask for bids we mustn't in- dicate in advance: what we think the cost will be." He said the bid for excavation for the main stadium, the veio- drome and underground park- ing was beJow "our estimates." The next bid would be called for the velodrome building be- cause the world cycling cham- pionships will be held in Mon- treal in 1974. He told the dinner gathering the 197R Games will become known in the future as "the Games that save the Olympics." By keeping costs down and not trying to outdo cities which had held the Games De- Montreal Show! would be known for its "mod- esty, simplicity and as being Games for the j treal wculd prove that a coun-' try didn't need to be rich to hold them. The Olympics had reached a i size that threatened the move- j ment. From the start, he said, no pro- vincial or ever thought of using the Olympics to promote the idea that Can- ada could do things bigger and better than anyone else. i One reason that Montreal! could keep the costs down was j that "civic improvements are' already Other cities had i used the Olympics to get funds! for civic improvement, but i "we've already got them, Expo did that for us." Allan Duval of the Penguins snapped the sweep by taking home the most gentlemanly player award. The Bisons landed the titls for being the city champions. Six special awards were also handed out to players and offi- cials for various reasons. Randy Syrenne was given a special award for being the most improved hockey player in the LMHA while Reg Osmond named the player with the most desire. Steve Pocza was awarded the Lefty Espheter award for his contributions to the minor hock- ey program while Cal Dickson was awarded the president's award for his efforts. Two other awards went to Gordon Orser for his dedica- tion to minor hockey while Harry Hoeksema was honored for his outstanding tion throughout the years.
