Depart Calgary Nov. 6 Return Nov. 17 return ART WILLIAMS TRAVEL CENTRE VILLAGE MALL PHONE 321-3201 So are Bucs Mets must wait, Cards still in THE ASSOCIATED PRESS New York Mets will have to wait another day and Hank Aaron of Atlantic Braves will have to wait another season. The Mets failed to win the National League East pennant after splitting a doubleheader with Chicago Cubs and Aaron missed a chance to tie Babe Ruth's famous home run mark in a hectic National League baseball schedule Sunday "We're going to win this thing because we've got the pitching and the said left fielder Cleon Jones after the Mets clinched at least a tie for the East flag with a 9-2 victory in the se- cond game. The Mets lost the opener 1-0. The Mets, once 12 games be- hind in last place this season, can win the elusive pennant today by beating the Cubs in Houk, Kasko out of work THE ASSOCIATED PRESS The calendar gave the 'You re out" sign to the American League baseball season The Boston management did the same to Red Sox manager Eddie Kasko. while Yankee manager Ralph Houk took himself out of the old ball game in New York Kasko, whose team finished second, was fired Sunday while Houk. whose Yankees Yankee Stadium is closed NEW YORK (AP) After 50 years, the majestic House That Ruth Built has closed its obsolete doors with a lack of heroics. A brief ceremony inside deserted Yankee Stadium to- day was to begin a two-year facelifting costing at least 9 million. The widows of baseball stars Babe Ruth and Lou Gehng were to join Mayor John Lindsay today in inaugurating the rebuilding job The final attraction in half a century of sports events was Sunday's 8-5 loss by the Yan- kees to Detroit Tigers. Afterwards, many of the 328 fans rushed on to the field and literally stole the bases, along with other stadium ob- jects, for souvenirs. But officials had removed several historic plaques from centrefield a few days ago as a precautionary measure. Retaining only dim memor.es of their past glory, the Yanks finished the season in fourth place in the six-team American League East. HOMERED ON FIRST DAY It was half a century since the 4-1 triumph the Yankees notched against Boston Red Sox April 19, 1923 On that oc- casion a crowd of a record at the time, helped to dedicate the league's biggest ballpark by watching Ruth knock a three-run homer into the rightfield bleacher finally settled in fourth place, resigned Kasko and Houk joined Billy Martin, released by the third- place Detroit Tigers in early September, on the sidelines of the American League East. "I'm doing this for one rea- son." said Houk after the Yan- kees dropped an 8-5 decision to the Tigers to close out a half- century at Yankee Stadium "We've won some pennants here but its been a little rough since 1966. You can't work that long in one place with the feeling you haven't quite got there.'' "I fully understand that when changes have to be made they start at this said Kasko, before the club he managed for four years beat Milwaukee Brewers 3-2 Elsewhere in the American League's final day of regular season action. Chicago White Sox nipped Oakland Athletics 1-0 in 10 innings; California An- gels blanked Minnesota Twins 3-0 and Texas Rangers shut out Kansas City Royals 3-0. Martin moved southwest when he was named manager of the Rangers. Kasko remains with the Red Sox as a scout while Houk's baseball plans are uncertain But the place where neither man has been able to get to is tirst. That's where Earl Weaver, whose contract to manage Baltimore Orioles was extended, resides And he's been there for three of the last four seasons. It was a tough day all around for the Yankees, who will vacate "The House That Ruth Built" for two years while it undergoes a million modernization program. A nostalgic crowd of saw the Yankees rally for three runs in the seventh to take a 4-2 lead but the Tigers scored eight times in the eighth for the victory. The Red Sox ended their season in better fashion. They got a victory and a new manager No Yankee successor was named to Houk. Darrell Johnson, a former Yankee catcher, was picked to manage the Red Sox next sea- son. The Red Sox finished their season with 89-73 marks after winning their season finale on a gift run. courtesy of Charlie Moore STAMPEDE WRESTLING EXHIBITION PAVILION TONIGHT! P.M. ATLAS vt HAYES _ KROFFAT VI RAMIREZ 6 TV 2.50, one game of their makeup doubleheader. They're counting on ace Tom Seaver in the opener "There won't be any vowed New York manager Yogi Berra, who in- sists that the Mets won't be caught at the wire by either St Louis Cardinals or Pitt- sburgh Pirates. The second-place Cardinals defeated Philadelphia Phillies 3-1 on the last day of their regular season and moved within one game of the top. PIRATES WHIP EXPOS The third-place Pirates also stayed alive, but just barely, with a 10-2 romp over Montreal Expos. The Pirates also have a makeup date today, playing San Diego Padres at home. While all this madness was going on. Aaron took some of the play away from the hottest pennant race in National League history One shy of Ruth's career home run total of 714, Aaron had four opportunities to match the record but didn't make it. He singled three times in four appearances as the Braves lost a 5-3 decision to Houston Astros. In the only other National League game, San Fcancisco Giants beat Cincinnati Reds 4- 3. Chicago won the opening game on Ron Santo's run-pro- ducing single in the eighth in- ning with two out. In the se- cond game, Jones hit a two- run homer and made two out- standing catches. Jones' homer in the second inning, his 10th, was the 35th this season off Ft .-guson Jen- kins of Chatham, Ont. The right-hander had six straight 20-game winning seasons before this year, when he finished with a 14-16 record. CARBO LEADS WAY Bernie Carbo robbed Tommy Hutton of an extra- base hit in the fourth and then doubled in the deciding run in the bottom half of the inning to help St. Louis beat Philadelphia. The outfielder crashed into the wall for a Hutton drive with a Phillies' runner aboard and the Cardinals protecting a 1-0 lead. Then Carbo belted a runscoring double in the Car- dinal fourth to establish a 2-0 lead. Jim Rooker scattered nine hits and drove in three runs to lead Pittsburgh past Montreal. For the Pirates to win this pennant race, it would take al- most a miracle. They'd have to win their game today and the Mets would have to lose their doubieheader. That would throw the wacky East Division into a three-way first-place tie between Pitt- sburgh, New York and St. Louis. Then, baseball would have to stage its first three-way pennant playoff. The Herald- Sports Upsetting set-up Bud Harrelson, New York Met shortstop, is upset by Dave Rosello (29) of the Chicago Cubs as-he slides into second base in the eighth inning of first game Sunday between the Mets and Cubs Rosello advanced on a bunt and scored the only run of the game on a single by Ron Santo. WHA founders eye football expansion EDMONTON (CP) The founders of the World Hockey Association hope to set up a third professional football league which would rival the National Football League, The Journal said today. Gary Davidson. WHA president, said in an interview with The Journal that he is Goody's high score good TUKNBKRRY, Scotland (AP) Charles Coody battled wind and cold for a 77 six over par and a three-stroke victory Saturday over Tony Jacklin as adverse weather conditions made the John Player golf tournament one of the highest scoring pro events in recent years. Coody who hasn't won in the United States since his Masters triumph in 1971 scored his second victory in a month in Britain with a 289 total, five over par. on the bitterly cold, wind-swept Turnberry course The triumph was worth 500 from the total purse of in Europe's richest tournament considering the concept (of a third league) but isn't sure if it would be viable at this time. There is no problem in finding prospective owners and the league could start up as early as next season with 12 teams, he said Some WHA owners are already represented among those planning to participate in the new football league. John Bassett, Jr., operator of the WHA Toros in Toronto has the Toronto franchise. Ben Hatskin, owner of the Win- nipeg Jets, is believed to have a franchise in Hawaii, and Davidson said he would take a team into southern California. Davidson said a franchise fee of about million would be considered. This would compare with at least million for an NFL expansion franchise, he said Receives standing ovation Aaron misses Ruth's record ATLANTA (AP) "Well, it's over with, said Henry Aaron, a tightly-drawn smile crossing his lips as he met a battery of writers Sunday alter failing to tie Babe Ruth's all-time home run record.

Aaron, who smashed his 713th homer off Houston's Jerry Reuss Saturday night to move within one of the legen- dary Ruth's record, collected three singles in four trips to the plate in Sunday's 5-3 loss to the Astros, but said.

Dave Johnson finished with 43 a major-league record for second basemen, and Darrell Kvans had 40.
