The Pompano Beach paper quotes Theismann as saying he completes his three-year contract with the Argonauts this season and will ask for permission Friday to negotiate with the Dolphins. Theismann was the Dolphins' fourth-round draft choice in 1971. The Dolphins must either pick up their option or trade their draft choice if Theismann is to get into the the Sun-Sentinel reports.

AL considers keeping rule CLEVELAND The American League is seriously considering implementing a designated-runner rule in the says the Cleveland Plain Dealer. The Plain Dealer said that the decision for the designated-runner rule was voted on and approved during a secret meeting of American League owners in Chicago on Tuesday. Charles O. owner of the world champion Oakland made the proposal and it was approved by Cleveland New York Kansas City Minnesota Milwaukee Brewers and Texas Rangers. Finely-'s proposal was op- posed by Baltimore Detroit Boston Red California Angeles and Chicago White Sox. The designated-runner rule would be similar to the designated-hitter rule. Lee president elect of the American said inter-league play was dis- cussed at the meeting but it appears that nothing can be done to implement the program. MacPhail added that the American League is ready to approve permanently the designated-hitter rule which hat been Instituted on an ex- perimental basis until Burman said he had taken amphetamines regularly since his second through last year.

I don't even Pronghorns lose By LLOYD YAMAGISHI Herald Sports Writer The University of Lethbridge Pronghorns ran into their own energy crisis and had to walk dejectedly to their dressing room at the Henderson Lake Tee Centre Wednesday night. The who came up with their best showing on home ice this seemed to run out of gas in the final period and suffered a heart- breaking 5-4 setback to the Southern Alberta Institute of Technology Trojans in an Alberta College Athletic Conference Hockey League contest. The local who are ob- viously getting stronger as the season rolls deserved a better fate in last night's end- to-end battle. They held the visitors against the ropes in the open- ing two periods by taking a 2-0 lead after the first 20 minutes of play and a 3-1 margin at the end of the second. With the two-goal edge it seemed as though the Pronghorns were well on their way to an upset victory over the veteran Calgary but it wasn't to be. Lady Luck or what ever you want to call smiled on the Trojans in the third period as the Pronghorns just simply ran out of fuel. The Trojans on the other came up with their best hockey in the final 20 minutes and out-scored their hosts 4-1 to register the narrow victory. Jim Hunter led the Trojans' attack with a pair of goals while singles came off the sticks of Dale Ian Hunter and Mark Russell. Rob Mike Mike Weisgerber and Wally Tunow replied for the Pronghorns with a goal apiece. During the three periods of Pronghorns' net- Rod Morrice turned aside 32 shots while Rick Saliat blocked 34 for the Tro- jans. Watson passes Gilbert N.C. Red-haired Tom Watson came from five strokes off the pace with a nine-under-par 62 and swept into the fifth- round lead in the World open golf tournament Wednesday. The 24-year-old who has just completed his se- cond full year on the pro charged into command with a 347 eight under par on the No. 2 course at the Pinehurst Country Club. Watson put on an eagle- birdie birdie birdie-birdie finish and established a six- stroke lead in the 144-hole event that offers a record to the winner. The tournament has three rounds to go and ends Satur- day. The Pronghorns were also guilty on nine of 13 minor penalties in the hard-hitting affair. Meanwhile the who sport a 2-4 record in their initial season in the will be looking for a pair of wins this weekend at the Henderson Lake Ice Centre. The Pronghorns will enter- tain the Northern Alberta In- stitute of Technology Ookpiks Friday and Saturday .nights with starts. ICE CHIPS The Pronghorns are definitely coming on and should be winn- ing their share of games in the near future Duane Johnson and Guy Smith of the Pronghorns served double minor penalties for roughing up a pair of Calgary players. In both the Calgary players deserved every blow Pronghorn's coach Gary Bartlett was more than pleas- ed with his club's perfor- mance Bartlett enjoyed the hard-hitting and end-to- end but didn't like the final outcome.
