Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - October 3, 1973, Lethbridge, Alberta 24-THE.LETHBRIDGE HERALD Wednesday, October 3, 1973 Not expected to start Seaver's arm sore NKW YORK i A I'i New York Mots not be as pitching strong as they'd like it to he for basetiall's National Leafiiie pluyol'i's. Local drivers do well Five members of the Lethbridge Sports Car Club tared extremely well in final tabulations of nine uutoslalom events staged this past summer. In official figures released today it shows the local club with leaders in three events as well as two seconds and a third. Max Baines, who drove his I BOO to victory in the re- cent Lethbridge hosted event, slipped into first place in the overall standings with 150 [joints to edge Ken Miles of Kdinontoti by a narrow two points. Baines won the ('lass III ti- tle giving him his point total and' the overall crown. Harold llubka emerged with the spoils in his Cooper, taking first place in the Class II division. Nathan Schoepp placed se- cond to Baines in the Class 111 final total as he earned 98 points in his Super beetle. A third place finish by Ron Watson came about as a result of his ability to earn 100 points in Class IV. .la net Freeman of i.ethbridge was a close second in women's competition as she chalked up 7li points in her Cooper. Donna Climilar of Kd- montim won the gals' title with 97 points. There was a five-way tie for third place, Baines. a spokesman for the local club, indicated that local autoslaloms will be staged despite the fact Alberta events are over. The sport of aiitoslalom is rapidly growing in competition and spectator interest Tom Seaver ordinarily might be expected to start the playoffs Saturday at Cincin- nati. But it probably will be .Ion Matlack because Seaver is nursing a tender shoulder. Manager Yogi Berra said he wouldn't decide definitely un- til Thursday but he now is leaning toward Matlack. who was 14-lti during the regular season. Tom has been bothered with I lie soreness for about his last tour starts." said Berra. "I think we'll go with .Matlack in the opener to give Tom an extra clay of rest." The Reds were expected to go with lefthander Don Gullett in the opener, moving their top winner. .Jack Billingham. back to the second game. Seaver has been taking pills to ease the ache in his shoulder. He worked six in- nings in Monday's clincher at Chicago but was hit hard and needed relief help from Tug for the victory. "I guess maybe my arm and shoulder are tired." said the ace righthander. "Let's face it. I've pitched about 2.000 in- nings in seven years. It has to take something out of you. es- pecially if you're a power pitcher as I am." Seaver pitched 290 innings this season, only three fewer than the National League leader, Philadelphia Phillies' Steve Carlton. He led the league in earned run average 12.OH i and strikeouts (251) while loging a 19-10 won-lost record. But lie was ineffective in September when the Mets made the stretch run to their half of the division pennants and twice was knocked from the mound inside of three in- nings. Matlack. beaten by the Cubs 1-0 in his last start Sunday, finished with a 3.16 ERA and 20 strikeouts in his second major league season. Irom Seaver's tender arm. the Mets are healthy for the playoff against the Reds. After a summer of injuries, the club made its run for the lop when injured regulars like Cleon Jones. Bud Harrelson, Jerry Grote and John Milner were able to return to the lineup. WONDER WHAT E'S WHISPERINV TO THAT BARMAI6.FUO?

The problem is. however, that rable rousers on both sides are ever-ready to claim Whether a position is being questioned or not, there are always certain ones among the native people who feel they should be heard ex- pounding on the background of the issue. Likewise, there are always those whites who are always ready to blame the Indian for any Jack of game animals in the field. Many felt a "Wounded Knee" situation could develop almost overnight at any time in Canada "the same as it did in the United States." There was agreement that while the sportsmen of this country inav not concur with some of the hunting rights the Indians have been granted un- der treaties, these rights are still law and should be treated as such.

UMITlDl of it." the Orioles skipper said Tuesday. "But the way we've been swinging the bat. we're capable of seoring four or five runs off any pitcher. "If we do that, and our pitchers can keep them in the park, we'll be in good shape." Oakland rapped Baltimore pitchers for 14 home runs dur- ing the regular season series, won by the A's 7-5.

"With the two best staffs in the league facing each other." Bamberger said, "it should be a great series. I don't think anyone is going to win three straight." The Orioles go into Satur- day's home opener of the best- of-l'ive series with a perfect 9- (i record in three previous league playoffs.
