Kal Bando, Blue's Oakland team-mate, was named to four first-place ballots and 182 points to finish second. The Robinson boys of the champion Baltimore Orioles gained the next two places. Out- fielder Frank Robinson received 170 points and two first-place votes to finish third, while third baseman Brooks Robinson col- lected 163 points and three first-place votes to come in fourth. LOLICH FIFTH Detroit Tiger pitcher Mickey Ifllich, runner-up to Blue in the Cy Young balloting, got tire other first-place vote and fin ished fifth with 155 points.

BOYS' AND GIRLS' SKATE EXCHANGE Globetrotters refuse to perform PORT HURON, Mich. (CP) Harlem Globetrotters, basket- ball's international goodwill am- bassadors, refused to make an appearance for a scheduled ex- hibition game here Tuesday night. Elliott I. Goodman, a Chicago lawyer who acts as bargaining agent for the Globetrotter play- ers' union, said the team is on strike against management over "bad working conditions." It was the first time in their long and colorful history the touring Globetrotters have vol- untarily failed to appear for a scheduled exhibition game. "The Globetrotters a r e n going to play until the owners talk to Goodman sak Tuesday. Playing conditions, "tha sparked the head a long list of grievances, he said. The lengthy schedule from Oct. 1 to the end of March each year when players were required t( play seven days a week and sometimes twice on Sundays also figures prominently in tin discussions. "They were given only one uniform a year and had to was! their own uniforms in their hotel rooms at night after play ing over two hours of basket said Goodman The only days the players have off during the season i four days prior to Christina when they can visit their fami lies at die players' expense, re gardlcss of where the team hap pened to be playing, the lawye said. Other grievances include lac of a pension plan for the tw Globetrotter tearms, poor pay and tack of a team trainer or doctor to travel with one of the teams.

SULLY SAYS -By Pat Sullivan jj WERE DAVE SKRIEN and the Saskatchewan W Roughriders guilty of greed Saturday afternoon in foggy McMahon Stadium? I don't think anyone was more suprised than I was to see Ron Lancaster go to the air with an 11-point lead and play just getting under way in the fourth quarter. The Roughriders, if my memory serves me cor- rectly have been tabbed, more often than not, as a Scrooge-like machine when they get a lead. It didn t seem to matter whether the lead was big or small -they horded it like it was the last one they would ever get. But Saturday, with London weather engulfing the field, Lancaster went for the coup-de-grace and it cost him. Skrien labelled the interception by C al gary s Reggie Holmes a "fluke." The interception, in case you missed it, started the Stamps on a comeback that would net 20 points in the final 20 minutes and give them a 30-21 win. Whether or not the interception was a fluke isn't the question. What was Lancaster, the CFL's leading miser, doing throwing in that situation after the Roughies had established an effective ground at- tack that gave them the lead? There is no doubt in my mind that Skrien wanted to stick it to the Stamps, but good, in the opening game and wrap things up al home tonight. On the other hand, his gambling may have given the Stamps the momentum to finish the Roughies in tonights game. Skrien made the statement that "we heat them and then beat ourselves. 1 was always under the impression that you had to have more points than the opposition at the final gun to lay claim to I could be wrong, though. Facing a do-or-die situation tonight, the Roughies will be lough They'll pull out all the stops but f don't think it will he enough. If the Stampeders take any kind of a lead, it, should be all over. Saskatchewan can come from behind, as they have done many times before, but they are much tougher when they are ahead. One key to the game could be the weather. If Calgary can't pass they will have to get a better game out of runners Hugh Mclnnis, Jesse Minis and Rudy Linlerman than they got Saturday. Still, all in all. I see the Stamps putting the finishing touches to their second straight Western Conference title. It certainly would be encouraging to send a rested club to the Grey Cup for a change rather than one that has had to fight for its life in a three-game Western battle. There certainly is a lot of basketball on tap for this weekend. The Lclhbridge Community College Kodiaks, who have been every bit as good as coach Tom Karren said they would be, are hosts of the first annual President's Invitational Friday and Saturday. And if reports are true from flie desk of information officer Gord Colledge, the Kodiaks are in for their most severe test of the young season. Teams from Oregon, Montana, Alberta and B.C. will challenge the locals for top honors. All the action gets under way at six o'clock Fri- day The draw, which is always of interest to fans, won't be known until a noon luncheon Friday when all the teams will be on hand and the draw will be made. Meanwhile, Magrath High School will be hum- ming as the third annual high school tournament j- slated for this weekend. The finest high school teams in southern Alberta will do battle Friday and Saturday. Raymond Comets are defending champions but a great deal of pressure is expected to be applied by the host Magrath Zeniths and Catholic Central Cou- gars in nn effort to dethrone the Raymond crew. All the action in Magrath starts at five o'clock Friday. GOMEZ CONVICTED TORONTO (CP) Former jockey Aveluio Gomez, 42, was convicted Tuesday of tax eva sion and failing to declare in- come of in 1967. Judge George Gardhouse, who acquitted Gomez on a third charge of failing to de- clare income of in 1968 pass sentence said lie would Nov. 26. Talk about tiie power of the press. Last week I mentioned the Lethbridge Boxing Club was trying to get off the ground again? Well, for a fact they are hut, they have run into a snag. It seems a person or persons were so anxious t( get started with their training they jumped a wal at Central School and removed two sets of gloves from the club. The club is open to anyone interested but they are asked to use the front entrance and leave the equip ment there when they leave. jeague, will renew his old airy with Harris tonight when e two clubs meet at Taylor ield in Regina. Stampeders opened the series ith a 30-21 win in Calgary and ve forced Saskatchewan gainst the wall. Game time is p.m. MST and it will be shown itionally on the CBC network. Heed joined the noughriders 1963 and has been a consist- it top ground-gainer from the art. He has rushed for ards or more in seven of those ne years and this year set areer records in total yardage ushing, most touchdowns rush g and most carries. When he joined the league, any people thought his G-foot- ne frame and 205 pounds was 30 small to stand up to the rounding a fullback must take. Yryu don't hear that kind of alk anymore. "A lot of people think a good illback should be big but you an be big and lack the aid Reed in an interview. "I think determination and roiig legs have helped me tre- icndously." ND FOES KNOW IT That determination is recog- u'zed by Calgary defensive back frank Andruski who says of eed: "You can hit George, step on is face and spit in his eye e just keeps plowing over top of you." Much ot Reed's success in the eague has been his good health vhich he believes is attributable in part to 'luck." "Anytime you look at that you lave to think you have had a certain amount of luck. But sel- dom do I get hit real good t's always kind of a side blow, t'laybe it's the way 1 run." And running is the thing he does test, although the product of Washington Stale University las done pretty well in the pass receiving department too. Reed said he has never really assessed which record Ire's nost proud of but "I think wing able to break Johnny irighl's record in the time I did s pretty satisfying." Bright played 13 seasons with Calgary and'Edmonton Eskimos and retired with a rushing total of yards. Reed, in nine scasons.faiished the regular schedule this year with yards to give him a career total of 10.353 yards. But the career touchdown record "was probably the most exciting because it was the win- ning touchdown against Edmon ;on and 1 did it at home." In that Sept. 2fi game, Reed scored his 92nd touchdown to move ahead of the previous record held by Dick Shalto, for- merly of Toronto Argonauts for .2 years. Reed finished the regular sea- ;on with 94 touchdowns to his credit. Where will it all end for the 32-year-old Reed? "I would like to maybe play mother year or two. I always aid that" when I can't play up to the standards I've set for my- self, I'd call it quits. Kraemer wins top rookie award WINNIPEG (CP) Wing- back Bobby Kraemer of the Winnipeg Blue Bombers has been named the outstanding Ca- nadian rookie in tie Western Football Conference, the Winni- peg club announced Tuesday. The selection was made by the Football Reporters of Canada. Kraemer, 21, is a recent grad- uate of the University of Mani- toba where he quarterbacked the Bisons of the Western Can- ada Intercollegiate Athletic As- sociation to the Canadian col- lege championship in 1969 and 1970. The 5-fool-ll-inch receiver is the second Bomber player to be awarded the trophy in as many years. Last year's winner, wide-receiver John Senst, was traded to Calgary Stampeders prior to the sUvt of this season. Kraemer hauled in 39 passes for yards and two touch- downs for the Bombers to place seventh in the pass-catching de- partment of the WFC.
