Frank Mahovlich fired the puck through Smith's legs as the Montreal Canadians won 4-3. Raps winning blow Willie's eyes shine OAKLAND (AP) Willie Mays tried to play it cool, the emotionless, ageless veteran of more baseball wars than he cared to recall But his eyes told a different story. Young George Theodore, a reserve outfielder for New York Mets, may have put it best. "His eves lit up."

Theodore was talking about Mays as he went to bat m the 12th inning of the second World Series game Sunday. The once incomparable Mays bounced a single up the mid- dle that sent in the tie- breaking run as the Mets beat Oakland Athletics 10-7 to tie the series at one game each The 42-year-old Mays, a cer- tainty for baseball's Hall of Fame, has tried to remain in the background in this 70th World Series. He sat on the bench as the Mets charged from last place in September to win the National League pennant. He played a utility role in the playoff victory over Cincinnati Reds. "Let the kids he said time and again before the Series started. "They won it (National League This is their series." A World Series brings some- thing out in the man who has collected hits. In the ninth inning, Mays was called upon as a pinch runner. He appeared to slip rounding second base and mis- sed a chance to go to third on John Milner's single. Even the partisan Oakland crowd sympathized. Then in the Oakland ninth, Mays appeared to misplay or lose in the sun a drive by Deron Johnson that went for a double and started an Oakland rally that tied the score 6-6 and sent the game into extra innings. In the 12th, however, the Mets had runners at first and third and two out. Mays swung and missed at the first pitch, then chopped a bouncer over the head of pitcher Rollie Fingers into centrefield and the Mets went ahead 7-6. Mays, in his last season as an active player, was a hero again Mays explained what hap- pened on his running mishap, on the Johnson drive and on a ball he appeared to play badly on Reggie Jackson's triple in the Oakland 12th. "I missed the bag at he said. "I remembered what Leo Durocher told me many years ago- 'Willie, when you miss the bag, stop and go back or you could run us out of a big inning I was trying to watch the ball and the bag at the same time I wasn't embar- rassed. "On Johnson's hit, I just lost the ball, I didn't see it. I might have caught Jackson's drive. But we were two runs ahead and I couldn't afford to get killed. We can't afford to have another outfielder Donohue captures it all MONTEREY, Calif (AP) Mark Donohue of Reading, Pa ran away from the field Sunday at Laguna Seca Raceway to win not only the Monterey-Castrol Grand Prix, but the 1973 Canadian-American Challenge Cup series. Using a backup engine bolted into his turbo-charged Porsche minutes before the race began, Donohue started from 16th place in the 24-car field, but quickly worked his way through traffic. On the 15th lap, Donohue, winner of the last five races in the eight-race million-dollars series for unlimited cars, fell in behind early leader George Follmer of Arcadia, Calif., driving a Vasek Porsche. Donohue got by Follmer, last year's series winner, on the 45th lap, behind the hill on the back side of the twisting, 1.9 mile road course. WINS EASILY Follmer pitted on the same lap with a blown turbo- charger, and for the last 21 laps, Donohue was out for a Sunday drive, already having lapped the second-place car, the UPO Shadow driven by Jackie Oliver of England. The winner toured the 66 laps, 125.4 miles, in a time of at an average speed of 102.19 miles an hour to win Cents, Bruins tied THE CANADIAN PRESS New Westminster Bruins broke even in a Western Can- ada Hockey League double- header with Flin Flon Bombers during the weekend.

If show you put them all together. Comfort is part of performance When we set out to make T'NT look good with its sleek, low-profile styling and handsome sheet-moulded cab, we also set out to make you feel good riding it. With a comfortable 3-layer foam sandwich seat and a 4- way suspension you can adjust for the smoothest ride over any terrain and load condition. There are a lot of snowmobiles around with big, fast engines, slide suspension systems and sleek, racy styling. And there are a lot of snowmobile buyers who think that's all you need to make a high performance machine. But, there's a little more to it than that. Power from a reliable source Take the all-new T'NT" from Ski-Doo. We've got the engines: 3 big twins by Rotax that really crank it out. But, instead of just worrying about the per- formance you need to get you moving, we also worry about the reliability you need to keep you moving. So we developed a rugged, Square Shaft clutch that increases available power by reducing power loss. We used a tough, light aluminum- steel frame to keep sled weight down. And on our muscular 440, for exam- ple, we chrome-plated the cylinder walls and added two additional transfer ports per cylinder to help it run cooler and last longer. The extra power you get is free. A complete handling package When we designed a slide suspen- sion system to improve T'NT han- dling, we didn't stop there. We also incorporated a stable inch track, a full 28 inch ski stance, mounted the engine low and up front over the skis and added (as standard) shock absor- bers and Ski-Doo carbide ski runners to give you a good grip on ice and hard packed snow. T'NT from Ski-Doo. It's got everything you expect to find in a high performance snowmobile, inclu- ding a speedometer and tachometer as standard equipment. But T'NT isn't just a few hot features. It's a totally engineered machine. See it at your Ski-Doo dealer's. There are six new models to choose from, including two with electric start.
