Lovell TORONTO Jocelyn of Toronto learned Tuesday from the Canadian Cycling Association that his theft of a box of cookies dur- ing a July cycling training trip to France will keep him out of the Commonwealth Games in New Zealand this winter.

Lovell won three medals at the 1970 Commonwealth Games in including Canada's first gold medal in cycling in more than 30' years. The following he captured another gold medal at. the Pan- American Games in Colom- bia. Lovell said in an interview that his hotel-room key in France also opened the door to a nearby storage room where he found the cookies.

McDonough took a pass from Lowell .MacDonald in front of Pat Sullivan Willie Stargell of the Pittsburgh Pirates is 'not all that happy with the format used to decide who is the most valuable player each year in baseball's major leagues. For that neither am I. Like I would like to know what standard is used to select the player regarded most valuable to his team. And I don't just want to know about I'm concerned with all major sports. Politics Has to have some bearing on the final choice made by writers who have the final vote. as many of you finished second to Pete Rose in the National League MVP battle. Stargell is a major cog in the Pittsburgh Pirate operation while Rose helps anchor a solid Cincinnati Reds' ship.. who again had more than 200 hits for the Reds and won yet another batting plays for the 'division Stargell's Pirates were third. Atgiie all you this has to have a bearing on the selec- tion of Rose. But what I am wondering and so is Stargell and many other players I'm is there a set criteria for who is most I can't imagine what kind of year a player would have to have if he played with an also-ran for him to be eligible for MVP honors. If you look down the rosters of some clubs I'm sure you will see players you feel are of as if not value to their respective clubs than Rose is to power-laden Reds. What about Mike Marshall of the Montreal Expos. He received a smattering of votes and yet he was the key to their brief pennant hopes in late September. Take him out of the line- up and where are Tom Seaver of the New York Mets is another. So is Bobby Bonds of the San Francisco Giants. Seaver's Mets won the pen- but could they have done it without To my way of thinking a player worthy of the MVP as it be.the most valuable player to his team. It is for this reason I can't go with the selection of Rose. He's a there's no doubting that. But where would those same Reds be without Johnny Bench or Joe Morgan or Tony As far as I'm they would be a lot better with the loss of any one of them than would the Expos without Marshall or the Mets without Seaver. I'm not begrudging Rose his title. According to the stan- which we know very little he was most valuable. But I can disagree. I was faced with the same thoughts at the close of last year's Stanley Cup playoffs when Yvan Cournoyer of the Montreal Canadiens won the Conn Smythe trophy as the out- standing player in the playoffs. Not that it means anything now or would it have had any bearing on the selection last bur for my money the player who dominated the playoffs was Gilbert Perrault of the Buffalo Sabres. It matters very little that he played in just six games. In those six games he was-far and away the most dominant figure on the ice. When one man can take control in such a whether it be in a six-game series or in three seven-game he has proven to me his worth. That individual is most valuable.
