"We'd like to win tonight, but if we don't, we'll go on down to Los Angeles and finish said Bando. The A's hold the upper hand in this wacky series despite in- ternal unrest, a condition that has been common with the team for some time now The latest episode involves Gene Tenace, a sensitive player who was lifted from the lineup by Oakland owner Charles O Finley prior to Wednesday night's game Tenace's reaction ranged from humiliation to rage He branded the A's eccentric owner inhumane While Tenace burned, Finley kept the rest of the A's smoldering with his pre-game meeting He read some in- flammatory remarks from Los Angeles star Bill Buckner that appeared in a local new- spaper Ho-hum, now Tenace miffed OAKLAND (AP) Gene Tenace, lifted from the lineup just prior to Wednesday night's fourth World Series gamp, said he was "humiliated" and blasted Oakland owner Charles O Finley as inhumane "Finley is trying to bury said Tenace "He treats me as just another number I d like to be treated like a man The scene around Tenace's locker was a dramatic contrast compared with two years ago, when Finley kissed his catcher-first baseman and gave him a bonus for hitting home runs in a World Series "That scene went through my mind during the entire nine innings tonight" said Tenace "I've been in three World Series now and I haven't done that badly." Tenace added "I'd like to be traded I could continue to play for the A's, but I don't want to."

After that, Tenace found out he wasn't playing-but not from Finley, nor Oakland manager Alvin Dark. "I had to be told by coach Bobby Winkles. Then I went to see Dark in his office." Tenace related that Dark told him the lineup change was Finley's idea "Yesterday you had your Chance with the lineup and to- day it's my Finley was quoted by Tenace as telling Dark Dark afterwards denied the remark by Finley "I have no respect for Dark for not backing me Tenace said "I like him, but I don't respect him as a man Down deep, he probably felt I should have played, but he didn't say anything He said that the A's organ- ization was a terrible one for which to play. "They don't treat you he said. "They just do things like they did tonight and don't tell you that they did them You have to find out yourself about it" Tenace said that Finley has been running the club all year and intermittently making up the lineup cards He felt this was wrong. "It's kind of a sad com- mentary on the A's, isn't it7" Tenace said "Buckner said that we have three good ballplayers and that the other 22 are no Finleysaid "I told them to go out and prove that he's wrong The A's did just that-and got excellent performances from some of those people that Buckner had termed inferior to the Dodger talent Jim Holt, a pinch-hitter who had been in a terrible batting slump, hit a two-run single in a four-run sixth inning that broke the game open Dick Green knocked in a run and made some spectacular defen- sive plays at second base And Ken Holtzman and Rolhe Fingers, two pitchers that Buckner probably wouldn't mind having on his team, silenced the usually noisy Los Angeles bats Yeager says Reggie was out Bulldogs must win, Cougars in 'Hat The Winston Churchill Bulldogs find themselves in a position where they have to win the remaining two games of the Southern Alberta High School Football League season or they become also rans. The Bulldogs will go against the LCI Friday at Henderson Stadium at eight in a game that means nothing to LCI except pride, but everything to the Bulldogs Bulldogs are currently second in the West Division of the league with a record of three wins, one tie and one loss. The Catholic Central Cougars lead the division with four wins and one tie LCI is in third spot in the three team league with only two wins in five starts A Bulldog win would mean they still have a shot at the division title If they beat the LCI, the Bulldogs would then have to beat the Cougars in the last game of the season A win over both LCI and the Cougars would give the Winston Churchill team the championship on the basis of a better record against the Congars one win and a tie But before the Bulldogs can plan on beating the Cougars they have to get by the Rams. While the Rams have not had a successful year they are still far from a push over. The razzle dazzle offence of the Rams and the all around play of Mark Baldry make them a team to be reckoned with. The last time the Rams and Bulldogs met the LCI controlled the strong passing game of Winston quarter- back Derek Redman, but came up on the short end of a 7-0 score There is little doubt that the Bulldogs will be going all out to beat the Rams Friday, but Jim Whitelaw's green and gold charges have too much spirit to lay down and play dead The Bulldogs find themselves in the position of having to recover from a sound 31-0 drubbing at the hands of the Medicine Hat Crescent Height Vikings last week in the 'Hat But Bulldog coach Peter Neufeld has had his boys in top spirit throughout the year and should have little trou- ble getting them up for the game The Cougars meanwhile will be travelling to Medicine Hat for a game with McCoy High They are in the enviable position of being able to afford to lose to McCoy and not hurt their chances of the division title However, a Bulldog loss and a Cougar win would clinch the crown for the double blue and white of Dean Dahl The action should be interesting in both games but especially the one in Henderson Stadium where the peren- nial champion Rams are looking for a victory to salvage their pride, and the Bulldogs are in need of a win to give them a shot at the division title.

South 327-40M OAKLAND (AP) Los Angeles Dodgers catcher Steve Yeager still believes he tagged Oakland's Reggie Jackson before Jackson tagg- ed the plate Wednesday night That was one of the key plays in the four-run sixth inn- ing as the A's won 5-2 to take a 3-1 edge in the 1974 World Series "I thought he was Yeager insisted. "I could be wrong They say the video tape indicated he was safe. I thought he slid away and hook slid to his left His left leg slid up over my shin guard.
