Lakers will open their 34- game schedule at home as they lost the Edmonton Blue Willow Angels Sunday and Monday afternoons. Frier and coach John Vase- enak are most pleased with he acquisition of Commodore the Lakers' first season in the AMBL. "You wouldn't find a more complete ball player than Com- commented Frier. "He can run, catch, throw and has a booming added Frier, who thinks he has nailed the best player that has ever come to the area. Coach Vaselenak will readily agree with Frier's feelings. Six foot two Commodore weights 195 pounds and will either play centre field or right field this year. He played with Swift Current Indians in the Saskatchewan Baseball League until midway .hrough the 1971 season, when ne decided to enter the Uni- versity of Lethbridge for a Bachelor of Ails degree. In 1970 he was voted the most valuable player on the In- dians' roster and shared the home run title in 19C9 and 1970. In 1969 Commodore was also asked to try out with the San Diego Padres, but declined the offer. During that time he was ter- rorizing the Manitoba-Saskat- chewan Junior Football League and was selected to league all- star team two years in-a-row as the top middle line-backer. Both seasons Commodore had try-outs with the Saskatchewan Roughriders, but failed to crack the line-up due to his weight.

Jets win Allan Cup SPOKANE, Wash. (CP) Before the start of the 1971-72 senior hockey season, Norm Johnson, rookie coach of Spo- kane Jets, said he was assem- bling the strongest team possi- ble to continue the team's tradi- tion of excellence. His architecture must have been good, for the Jets ended the long season Monday nighl by winning the Allan Cup, em- blematic of Canadian senior amateur hockey supremacy. They downed Barrie Flyers 6-3 to win the best-of-seven final 4-2. The victory, before fans, gave the Jets their second Allan coached the Jets to their first- 7CH.'THIS LOOK'S 1 A ROUSH LOT, >MATE I'UU- f 3RCP IN AGAIN H Casper talking to WHA people dumping Baltimore Clippers 4-1; ists smothered Baltimore's at- to bring the title to Canada for j tempts to take advantage of I the first time in the league's power plays and struck sud- Sli-ycar history. denly for three goals within six ft was the fourth straight vie-; minutes in the opening period to lory for the Voyageurs in the seal the Clippers' defeat.

Parent earlier signed the giant contract with the now-de- funct Miami Screaming Eagles. Casper is believed lo be trying to renegotiate Parent's contract with any of three possi- ble bidders. The occasion for the lawyer's visit is the two-day meeting of the WHA board of trustees which ends today. WAITING FOR TALKS On hand to greet Casper were at least four players with Na- tional Hockey League experi- ence. All are believed interested in moving to the new league which is scheduled to begin play this fall. The players were Denis Du- pere of Toronto Maple Leafs, Dick S a r a z z i n, Philadelphia Flyers: Gord Labossiere and defenceman Ralph MacSwcyn. Labossiere and MacSweyn spent most of last season in the American Hockey League with Cleveland Barons and Rich- mond Robbins respectively.
