Nicknamed for his aggressive baseball the Reds' dynamic player won the MVP prize in a close battle with Pittsburgh Pirates slugger Willie Stargell. who hit .338 this year in leading the National League in batting for the third time in his received 12 votes for first place and a total of 274 points. Stargell. the league leader in home runs with 44 and runs batted in with collected 10 first-place votes and 250 points. It was the tightest MVP race since when Willie McCovey of San Francisco Gi- ants edged Tom Seaver of New York Mets by 22 points. Rose and Stargell were the only players named on all 24 ballots cast by the which consisted of two writers from each league city. Two other players who each Stargell not what is PITTSBURGH A 'disillusioned Willie Stargell of Pittsburgh Pirates doesn't want the National League's Most Valuable Player award he has to break Roger Maris' record of 61 home runs to get it. it has to be that they can keep Stargell said Tuesday night after All paid jfor camp NEW YORK Ali said Tuesday ..-Be chased Earnie Shavers out his training camp because facilities only big for one and not an incident when the two in a sparring session last week. Shavers knocked Ali down for a count of two during the third round of a five-round sparring session last Thurs- day and the former world champion admitted he hit the canvas after absorbing a left hook and right hand to the chin. But he said the knockdown was only to excite the 100 who were watching the training. who's ever seen train knows I always fall Taown like that. I do it all the -time.

Somebody had to go and he learning by phone from a reporter that he had been edg- ed by Pete Rose of Cincinnati Reds in the MVP voting. they had no other choice but to give it to like if I broke Maris' then I wouldn't want he added. Stargell's MVP sentiment is complex. It runs deeper than sour and it stems from his belief that there are no fixed criteria for determin- ing the winner. That's why he side-stepped the point-blank question of whether he felt he deserved the award over Rose. can't really say I deserve it because I don't know what the standards he said in a even voice. That question first arose for Stargell in 1971 when he led the Pirates to a division title but finished second in the MVP voting to Joe Torre of the also-ran Cardinals. He said the answer he got then was that Torre had a bet- ter individual although St. Louis didn't win the title. Yet Stargell feels he may have been bypassed again this year because the Pirates finished third.

The game is set for the Civic Centre at Pronghorns take on king- size Dinosaurs By LLOYD YAMAG1SHI Herald Sports Writer The University of Lethbridge Pronghorns will drift back a few. million years in the past for their 1973-74 Canada West University Athletic Association Women's and Men's Basketball League season openers this weekend. Being the perfect the Pronghorns will jump into their to bring back the University of Calgary Dinnies and Dinosaurs from the for their encounters Friday and Satur- day at the U of L gym. The fem'ale varsity Pronghorns will open their season schedule first Friday night as they entertain the Dinnies at while the male varsity Pronghorns will match shots with the Dinosaurs later in the evening -at All four clubs will see action again Saturday at the same times and location. Meanwhile to say the Pronghorns will have their hands full on the weekend would be the biggest under- statement of the year. The Dinosaurs will be living up to their name this season as they'll carry a roster of 13 giants averaging some two inches over six feet. But this statistic doesn't bother Pronghorns' coach Robin Fry and his chargers as much as the fact that four of the five starters are six-foot four inches or better. Tom will be the big pivot man for the Dinosaurs this season and will toss the ball off to forwards Jim Lathrop and Lyle Leslie who stand five and seven inches over six-feet respectively. The starting guard positions will most likely be filled by Don Lament and Bill Lathrop. In case of foul trouble or in- the Dinosaurs will also have available at least another seven players over six-feet in height. In order to compensate for the height Pronghorns' coach Fry will have his players thinking about a defensive game more than an offensive one. hard to match the Dinosaurs on the backboards with their size so we'll have to key on a defensive commented Fry. rejy on a full-court press throughout the game which could possibly wear them down or force them to come to us rather than the other .way he added. If the Pronghorns have any intentions of utilizing the full- court they'll have to be quick and play as a team in all respects. Miners blanked Purity Bottling scored single goals in each of the first two periods and skated to a 2-0 victory over Miners' Library in a Commercfal Men's Hockey League game Monday night. It was the first loss of the 1973-74 season for Miners who just couldn't beat Bottlers' netminder Phil Wandler dur- ing the three periods.

Meanwhile the Labor Club Athletics came back from a 2- 1 first period deficit and managed a 3-3 draw with the Lethbridge Community College Kodiaks.
