Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - May 19, 1973, Lethbridge, Alberta 12 THE lETHBRIDCI NERAID Solurdey, May I9, Concerned look A. J. Foyf looks concerned al the Indianapolis Speed- way Friday afternoon ofter the Texan got back into action with a m.p.h. lap. The three-time winner at the Indy 500 is faced with the possibility of being ousted from the 33-car field after he qualified with an average 188.922 m.p.h. last Saturday. It will be the worst start for the 38-year-old Foyt in 15 years at the Speedway, A. J. Foyt slow, may be ousted INDIANAPOLIS (AP) A. J. Foyt says he's "playing it but he was in a real hot spot going into the third day of qualifying for the May 28 In- dianapolis 500. The three-time Iiidy -winner and five-time national driving champion found himself in the most precarious position of his 15 years of competition at the Indianapolis Motor Speedway. The hard-driving Texan was In 23rd position on the 33-car starting grid and in danger of being bumped from the lineup here for the first time. He went home to Houston for a couple of days this week and came back with some remedies for his sick engine. He also went out in his backup Coyote- Foyt and hummed a lap of 194 470 miles an hour Friday His four-lap qualifying aver- age in his No. 1 car, another Coyote-Foyt, was 188.927 m.p.h. Twenty-three other drivers made the field along with Foyt last Saturday and six more on Sunday, with a combined aver- age speed of 192.572 m.p.h. Only Sam Posey. a former road-racer, was slower than Foyt. Posey, who was preparing a new Eagle he bought this felt it was inevitable he would be bumped with a 187 921-m.p.h. average. The three open spots in the starting field were expected to be filled quickly this afternoon, and then the process of bump ing was to begin. The 33 fastest cars will make the starting field for the race, so faster cars can oust the slower cars already in the field, with everybody moving up one notch to fill the bumped driv- ers' spol. Theoretically, only the pole, which belongs to Johnny Ruth- erford, is sacred ground. He won the No. 1 spot on the first day of qualifications last week- end when he charged ai ound the asphalt oval at an average 198.413 m.p.h Royals host junior club Lelhbridge Royals of the Cal- gary Senior Soccer League, will play host to a top flight jumor team Sunday afternoon. With league play se1 to gel under way Sunday. May 27, the Royals will use the game Sun- day as a tune up. Royals meet Calgary Trojans" at home in their first league game. Sunday's game is set for three o'clock at the Cine Cen- tre pitch. Montreal Olympics will go on as scheduled Daume pleased with what he saw MONTREAL The next Summer Olympic Games, to be staged here in 1976, re- ceived an endorsement of confidence this week from Willie Daume of West Ger- many, a vice president of the International Olympic Com- mittee and a most influential person in these matters. Daume visited Montreal to see how the Canadians were handling a set of problems, most of them financial, which seemed almost unsurmount- able a year ago. Led by this city's forceful mayor, Jean Drapeau, the Olympic organ- izing committee has diminish- ed if not eliminated its prob- lems. "I feel much said Daume. The Games have been bud- geted at about 312 million dollars, considerably less than the Munich venture of last year because so many exist- ing facilities can be used here. But Drapeau and his cohorts have to raise money without the help of the fed- eral government and without loading additional tax burdens on the citizens of Montreal. They hope to raise a lot of revenue by selling commem- orative stamps and coins, leg- islation for which is being prepared in Ottawa. But 312 million dollars represents a lot of stamps, so a special lottery is planned with the memory that the Rome Olym- pics of 1960 were financed largely by that device. If there is a deficit, as there for the heralded Expo World Fair of 1967-68, the province of Quebec has ap- parently agreed to foot the bills rather than the federal government in Ottawa. The latter picked up the Expo debt and feels it cannot do some- thing extra again for Mon- treal. Ground breaking was ac- complished two weeks ago at the construction site for the stadium, a unique opeu-ended seat facility. After the games it will take on an um- brella-type roof and be con- verted into a home for the Expos baseball team and the Alouettes football team. The construction schedules for the other new facilities are all on time. The American Broadcast- ing Company has agreed to pay 25 million dollars for the United States televi s i o n rights, up from the 13.5 mil- lion dollars A.B.C. paid for Munich, and the network has said out all the commercial time for the programs for 40 million dollars. Cost over- runs are expected to absorb most of the profit potential for A.B.C. The Canadians, and a lot of others around the world, hope that the I.O.C. will take some concrete stsps to lessen the nationalistic aspects of the games which may have con- tributed to the tragedies of Munich. Daume said thft lower visibility of national flags they would be on dis- play only at the opening monies and elimination of national anthems were among the proposals. The next major I.O.C. meet- ing will be at Varna, Bul- garia, in October when the individual sports federations and several of the National Olympic bodies, including that of the U.S., will press for re- laxed eligibility rules moving away from the intransigence of Avery Brundage's amateur- ism. Tigers beat Boston for seventh time ATVTYV Yanks, Sox know how it feels By TIIE ASSOCIATED PRESS Clueago White Sox and New York Yankees gagged oil a taste of their own medicine Fri- day night while Detroit Tigers continued to thrive on a new fangled remedy known as Bos- ton Red Sox. The White Sox, whose pitch- ers have spun six shutouts this season, were dealt a six-hit 3-0 dose by Jim Kaat of Minnesota Twins. The Yankees, who scored twice with two out in the ninth Thursday night and went an to beat Milwaukee in extra in- nings, saw the Brewers tag re- lief ace Sparky Lyle for three runs, with two out in the ninth, for a 6-5 victory. But the Tigers had the right prescription once more as they beat the Red Sox for the sev- enth time in as many i973 games, this time by a M count. Elsewhere in the American League, Oakland Athletics edged Kansas City Royals 5-4. Haiti mo r e Orioles downed Cleveland Indians 6-2 and Cali- fornia Angels trounced Texas Rangers 7-1.

Holt's home run and singles by Larry Hisle and Tony Oliva with a sto- len base in between. It was the fifth loss in the last seven games for the White Sox, but manager Chuck Tanner isn't panicking. "I wouldn't say we're in any kind of he insisted. "Remember, we were 2-4 at the start of the season and now we are 18-7 for our last 25 games. I'll take that kind of percentage all season long." Hot-liitting Dave May's fourth single of the game, a two-run shot up the middle, capped Mil- waukee's ninth-inning rally against New York. It also gave him 16 hits in his last 29 at- bats, raising his batting aver- age to .293 from .225. and was his sixth game-winning hit of the season.

But they did.

In the first inning, the Chi cago second baseman hit a high chopper to shortstop Larry Bcwa who made a good throw. Beckert was sure he was safe, umpire Augie Donatelli wasn't as ceraain. The first base umpire started to raise his hand to signal out, then changed his mind. Beckerl went hitless the rest of the night. The modem National League record is Tommy Helms' 37 rarnep, 19 games snort of Joe DiMaggio's major league mark.
