(AP W.rephoto) Mays tfon't he a Met Giants want too much NEW YORK (AP) Willie Mays apparently won't be coming to New York after all least not in a New York Mets uniform. The Mets said Tuesday thai the San Francisco Giants' asking price was simply too high. "They want players, not said M. Donald Grant, the Mets' board chair- man. "I told them it was im- probable the Mets could pro- vide the personnel they need." Thus the rumored prospec- tive deal for one of baseball's superstars was cooled in a dav. Rugby Club manages split The Lethbridge Miner's Rugby Club earned a split in two 'exhibition games they hosted last weekend. The Miner's edged the Cal- gary Saints 14-12 in their first encounter, but suffered a 20-0 setback to a squad from Medi- cine Hat. The Medicine Hat team was made up of players from the Medicine Hat Junior College and British soldiers stationed at Sufficld. In their victory over Cal- gary, Bob Baunton, John Gray and Bill TurnbuU scored tries while Willie Blrreu added a convert. The Giants were reported to have asked for infielder Ted Martinez and one of two pitch- ers, either John Matlack or Jim McAndrew. The Mets wanted to give the Giants money instead of players. Grant, however, did not completely close the door on a possible trade. "I asked Giant owner Hor- ace Stoneham to set up a meeting with Mays, himself, and our Grant said. "He promised lo do so. "He said he will call me as soon as he reaches Mays. So, I won't know anything until Wednesday." Grant said he "wanted to make sure thai Mays wanls lo come here." "The most important thing to be developed before any further talks are Willie's reac- tion lo coming to the Mets and the conditions attached to such a move. It is our position that he will be happy to come to the Mets. If he won't be, lhal's it. We don't want a disssalisfied player on our club." Mays said he wouldn't mind closing out his playing career In New York, but was an- noyed at the way the situation has been handled. "1 don't want to embarrass the Giants." the 41-year-old centre fielder said in Mont- real, where he was wilh Ihe learn for a game. "Bui il seems lhal they feel differ- ently about it. "I think I deserve a lot more respect from them than someone else. That's how I feel. I don'l know how other people feel." Mays, always a favorite started his career with the old New York Giants be- fore the team moved to the West Coast. Among many ac- complishments. Mays is No. 1 on the alltime home-run list with 646. Quarry brothers in main events LAS TOGAS, Nov. (AP) Contracts have been signed for a June boxing card featuring Bob Foster in defence of his world light heavyweight charo- pionship against Mike Quarry and ex-heavyweight king Mu- hammad Ali in a bout with Jerry Quarry, promoter Bill Miller said Tuesday.

By THE ASSOCIATED PRESS Juan Marichal never has had a losing season since joining San Francisco Giants in 19CO. Starting this season, he had the best winning percentage among active National League pitchers with more than one year of service, compiling a .670 mark on 221 victories and 109 loses. He had pitched 50 shutouts, tops among all active pitchers. He had the third besl earned- run average in major league hislory, a 2.94 mark, behind Walter Johnson's 2.37 and Gro- ver Alexander's 2.56. He ranked 10th on the all-time list with strikrauls. He broke into the major leagues with a one-hitter against Phila- dephia on July 19, I960. He pitched a no-hitter against Phil- adelphia Phillies on July 19, 1900. He pitched a no-hitler against Houston in 1963, and six times he was a 20-game winner, with a high of 26 in 1968. Now, Marichal is headed for his first losing season. After shutting out Houston Astros 5-0 in Hie Gianls' opening game, he has lost five in a row, including a 7-1 decision to Montreal Expos Tuesday night. Elsewhere in the National League, Chicago Cubs trounced Cincinnati Eeds 7-1, Pittsburgh Pirates trimmed Allanla Braves 5-2, St. Louis Cardinals edged Houston 2-1, and Los Angeles Dodgers at New York Mets and San Diego Padres at Philadel phia were rained out. DEFENCE COLLAPSES A complete collapse by the Giants' defence in the sixth in- ning helped saddle Marichal with his fifth consecutive set- back. The Expos had nicked Man chal for a run in the third or John Boccabella's triple and Tim Foil's sacrifice fly and an other in the fourth on Boots Day's RBI single, before scor ing four times in the sixth will the help of four San Francisco errors. Bob Bailey opened the sixth with a single and went to inur1 when Marichal fielded Mik Jorgensen's bunt and threw the ball into centre field. Ron Fairly then lofted a fly ball t centre. Bailey held third, bu Jorgensen went to second whc Dave Kingman bobbled Ke Henderson's relay throw. After Ken Singleton was pur- posely passed, Day hil a groun- der to second baseman Tit Fuentes. Fuentes booted th ball into right field, allowing a' three runners to score. Da then came home on an error b shortstop Chris Speier. TORREZ ERA 1.40 Meanwhile, Mike Torre checked the Giants on nine sea lered hils for his second victor in two decisions, lowering hi ERA to 1.40 in 25 2-3 innings. "Every time they got a hit he said, "it seemed like ther were two out and I didn't ru into too much trouble thai way." Monlreal manager Gene Mauch said he Ihought Torrez had improved greatly over 1969, the season he started so well with St. Louis. "He's become a complete pitcher said Mauch. "Then, he used to rear back and fire the ball. Now, he mixes his pitches and forces them to liit it on the ground." Torrez had to pitch only once to Willie Mays, the Giants' aging superstar. The 41-year-old Mays was in the original lineup, but was scratched at the last minute. He appeared only as a pinch liitter, singling in the ninth.

The two runs Ihey Campbell booed at hockey game OTTAWA (CP) Former Detroit Red Wing great Gor- die Howe made it apparent Tuesday that he is a strong admirer of National Hockey League president Clarence Campbell. Speaking at the annual Memorial Cup luncheon, Howe said "it hurt to hear" Ottawa fans boo Campbell when he was introduced at the opening game of the junior hockey finals Monday night. Howe got a tremendous ova- tion from the fans in the rick, but said at the luncheon he couldn'l understand why Campbell should get booed. He said the NHL president had done a lot for the league, for pro hockey generally, for fans and had built wisely so that hockey players could make a good living from the game. Campbell, who also was a guest at the affair, didn't hear Howe's speech. The NHL boss left early to attend Tuesday's fifth game of the Stanley Cup finals played in Boston. scored in the ninth inning were too little and too late to prevent their Ihird consecutive setback. Ed Brinkman's run-scoring single and pitcher Joe Cole- man's suicide squeeze bunt gave Ihe Tigers a 2-0 lead in Ihe seventh inning. They added a run in the eighth on Norm Cash's RBI single and two in the ninth on a single by Aurelio Rodriguez and Bill Freehan's infield out. Minnesota's Jim Katt, the American league's winningest active pitcher, posted his 171st career triumph with help from Wayne Granger in the ninth as the Twins downed the Yankees despite New York homers by Felipe AIou and Thurman Mun- >on. Winless Fritz Peterson was saddled with his fifth straighl loss as the Twins scored three times in the second inning on a walk, Bobby Dai-win's double, an infield out, singles by Phil Hoof and Kaat and Cesar To- var's double. Tiie Athletics exploded for the biggest inning in their five-year history in runs in the crushed the Brewers in their opener. Jim Slaton and Frank Linzy were the victims as Angel Man- gual drove in three runs with a double and sacrifice fly and Dave Duncan drove in two with a single. The wild inning in- cluded a wild throw by Linzy on a bunt by winning pitcher Ken Holtzman and an ensuing wild throw from right fielder Billy Conigliaro enabling two base- runners and Holtzman to circle the bases. Chicago's Ferguson Jenkins, vinner of at least 20 games in each of the past five seasons, liked his record to 3-2, stopping Cincinnati on five hits. He lost us shutoul on Johnny Bench's single with two out n the ninth. Earlier, Glenn Beckert and Jim Hickman drove in two runs apiece for the Cubs and Hick Monday collected four hits, in- cluding a homer.

The Braves, however, managed lo stop Al Oliver's 18-game hit- ting streak, holding him hitless in five at-bats. Former Astro Scipio Spinks pitched a six-hitter for St. Louis in stopping his e x -H o u s t o n team-mates.

(AP) Lawyers for eight Nation Football League teams claim in court Tuesday the tean were not engaged in a corsp acy to force season ticket-hoi ers to buy tickets for pre-seas exhibition games. Such a conspiracy has been charged in a U.S. districl court suit filed by Angelo F. Coniglio of suburban Amherst, a Buffalo Bills' fan. His lawyer argued that Con- gress gave the NFL a "very j narrow Immunity" from the anti-trust laws when the NFL', and American Football League merged in thus forming "a unique monopoly." SAYS DIDN'T SUFFER Frank G. Raichle, the Bills lawyer, countered that Coniglio could not sue the Bills because, Raichle claimed, he had not suf- fered any damage to his busi- ness or property as a result of the Bills' tickel policy. Coniglio is an engineer employed by Ihe Steie Power Authority. H. Laddie Montague of Phila- delphia, Coniglio's lawyer, said the U.S. Supreme Court has per- mitted suits of this type because of damage suffered by custom- ers. Judge Jota D. Henderson, who ordered the lawyers to sub- mit legal briefs within two weeks, must decide whether Coniglio can sue not only the Bills but all other 16 NFL teams that tie in preseason tickets with season tickets.
