Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - November 4, 1974, Lethbridge, Alberta LETHBRIDGE Hammerm' Hank Aaron moves back to Milwaukee ANDY CAPP MILWAUKEE (AP) Mil- waukee Brewers have given up two players for more fans, a designated hitter and some history. In Milwaukee, that's known as Henry Aaron. The Brewers and Braves an- nounced Saturday that Aaron, major league baseball's home Cards lose first, Bills nip patriots THE ASSOCIATED PRESS Dallas Cowboys wiped away the National Football League's last perfect record Sunday, beating St. Louis Car- dinals 17-14 on Efren Herrera's 20-yard field goal with 20 seconds left. In the thriller of the day, John Leypoldt kicked a 47- yard field goal of the first play of the final quarter as Buffalo Bills, 7-1, broke a first place tie with New England, 6-2, in the American Conference Elks drop Warriors The Lethbridge Midget Elks built up a 5-1 first-period lead and went on to whip the Juvenile Warriors 13-7 in ex- hibition hockey action at Henderson Ice Centre Sunday. Dwayne Lendrum led the Elks with three goals, while LeRoy Pa van, Murray Auld, and Scott Jarvie added two each and Gerry Lipka, Earl Ingarfield, Gord Tokariuk and Rand Syrenne scored singles. Cam McLennan and Bob Quinnell each scored twice in a losing cause with singles go- ing to Marcelle Dumont, Richard Shardlow, Bob Miles. The Warriors will see their first league action in the Southern Alberta Juvenile loop this Wednesday when they host Taber Juveniles at the Civic Centre. Game time is p.m. Eastern Division by beating the home team Patriots 29-28. In an earlier meeting at Buf- falo, the Bills had won 30-28. Sunday's Buffalo star was linebacker Dave Washington who ran 72 yards with an interception for a touchdown and then blocked a field goal attempt with 50 seconds left in the game. His interception had given the Bills a 26-21 lead. Quarterback Jim Hart threw touchdown passes of 19 yards to Jackie Smith and 10 yards to Mel Gray as the Car- dinals, 7-1 and first in the National Conference's Eastern Division built a 14-7 lead after three quarters at Dallas.

Aaron and the Braves deserted Milwaukee for Atlanta after the 1965 season, but visits for exhibition games and Aaron's hitting exploits have kept him a favorite here. In exchange, the Braves took outfielder Dave May, who went from .303 with 25 homers and 93 runs batted in during 1973 to a .226 mark with 10 home runs last season, and an unnamed minor leaguer. "What can you say about Henry Brewers' president Bud Selig asked. "He's the greatest player of our generation. You think of Henry Aaron and you think of his excellence on and off the field and a certain class that only really great players have." The Brewers had to also think of sagging attendance, the chance to make Aaron their designated hitter, and nostalgia. Selig, a Braves fan when Aaron hit his first big league home run off St. Louis hurler Vic Raschi in April, 1954, said: "Everybody in this organization is delighted. In fact, delighted may be an un- derstatement." He said Aaron was happy, too. "Henry sounded as excited as a little the Brewers owner said after a trans- Pacific telephone conversa- tion with Aaron, who was in Tokyo for a home run hitting exhibition against Japanese slugger Sadaharu Oh whom he beat 10-9. Selig said Aaron told him: "I'm thrilled because I'm coming home. That's what Milwaukee is. That's where my career started. The ex- citing prospect of coming home is just tremendous." Selig said final terms of Aa- ron's contract would be nego- tiated when the slugger returns home. WHAT WOULD YOU SAY DON'T LOOK SO WORRIED, KIP I DON'T MEAN SIGHT NOW E WONT TO THE TABLE: Flyers move ahead of pack THE CANADIAN PRESS Most people expected Phila- delphia Flyers to be at the top of their division from the start of the 1974-75 National Hockey League season. But the defending Stanley Cup champions dropped two early-season games at the Spectrum, where they had been almost invincible last year. They even lost in Oakland to California team they were 5-0 against in 1973-74. However, Philadelphia finally is atop Division 1 following a 3-1 win over New York Islanders Sunday night and a 3-0 triumph over the Canadiens in Montreal Satur- day night. The Flyers now have won four in a row and hold a one- point edge over the Islanders who they meet again Tuesday. Chicago Black Hawks and Pittsburgh Penguins battled to a 3-3 draw Sunday, Buffalo Sabres edged New York Rangers 4-3, Kansas City Scouts won their first game ever by defeating Washington Capitals 4-3, and Boston Bruins hammered Minnesota North Stars 10-1. The -Islanders defeated Boston 3-2 Sunday, St. Louis Blues thrashed Atlanta Flames 9-0, Los Angeles Kings defeated Detroit Red Wings 5-1, Buffalo topped Toronto Maple Leafs 6-3, and Chicago spoiled the Scouts home opener by winning 4-3. Flyers captain Bobby Clarke said Philadelphia may not have been in the best of shape when the season began. "We were doing a lot of travelling during the exhibi- tion he said. "Let's face it, the exhibition games aren't tough. The coaches are usually going with four lines to get a look at guys." "Some of ours guys were still on Cloud Nine after winn- ing the Stanley Cup last said coach Fred Shero. Defenceman Jim Watson scored twice to lead the Flyers against the Islanders. Gary Dornhoefer got the other Philadelphia goal with Bob Bourne replying for New York.
