Lethbridge's 2-3-1 season record has them tied with the Win- nipeg Clubs and the Fhn Flon Bombers All three teams have five points. daily as in the peace-of-mind department. Actually, the Seals are the orphans of the National Hockey League, hop- ing to latch on to a new owner. Finley was saddled with a loser but couldn't move the franchise out of Oakland.' Rather than take the con- tinued losses, he got the NHL to buy him oat for million. During his reign, the club seemed to be in constant tur- moil But now Finley has a third consecutive world baseball championship to play with and doesn't need hockey. The Seals have a new front office under Bill McCreary, former coach of Vancouver Canucks. Marshall Johnston, up from the Seals player ranks, is in his first full season as coach after taking over last February, far as I'm concerned, I think it's working satisfac- Johnston said after a recent game in New York against the Rangers that end- ed in a 5-5 tie "The only thing is, of course, we might have more money for little things. Maybe some off-ice equipment, some video tape which we don't have and so on. "We might have these things if we had a private owner, but we're making out all right. I think we're playing very well, better than 'I thought we'd be playing so early in the season." In trying to build a better defence after allowing the most goals in the NHL last season, the Seals traded off four of their top five scorers, keeping only Joey John- top scorer with 27 goals'last season. Gone are Ivan Boldirev, Walt McKechnie, Gary Croteau and Reg Leach. The Seals got Jim Neilson, a 32-year-old veteran defenceman, from the Rangers in the draft and sign- ed 18-year-old rookie Rick Hampton and Mike Christie, a former Chicago Black Hawk farmhand. The Seals had a tie and a win in their four starts prior to tonight's game in Montreal against the Canadiens.

PHONE 941-2360 or write RAY CROSATO 1980 Prater Ave. PI. Coquitlam, B.C. OAKLAND (AP) There are some characteristics of the Oakland A's which remind Joe DiMaggio of the great New York Yankee teams of the past but he thinks it is too early to start talking about the A's as a baseball dynasty. "When you talk about the Yankee Clipper said Friday, "you don't talk about three years, four years or even five. "Remember the Yankees dominated the American League in the 1920s, won six out of eight World Series just before World War II. then won five straight starting in 1949 pennants.

The Hall of Fame out- fielder, who succeeded Babe Ruth as the idol of Yankee Stadium, watched the ram- bunctious A's wrap up the 1974 world championship three straight victories here and saw the earlier games on television "Oakland is a good ball club whiclj survives largely on its pitching." he said. "It is a poised, opportunistic club that waits for the other team to make a mistake and then it jumps in ,to deliver a knockout. "The Yankees the old ones and the newer ones were a lot like that. They were always ready to pounce But these teams had both great hitting and great defence He is unwilling to concede that the A's deserve to be spoken of in the same breath with those Yankee teams that preceded him and those on which he played "You get into trouble when you start comparing he said. Pressed to lend his exper- tise to a rating of the high- flying A's with old time Yankee powers, DiMaggio laughed and replied: as a start, would you prefer having Gene Tenace at first base over Lou Gehrig7 And Ray Fosse behind the plate. I wonder how many people would prefer him over Bill Dickey or even, let's say. Yogi Berra'" Not counting the great 1927 Yankee team that included Ruth and Gehrig. there were two later periods when the Yankees ruled supreme. DiMaggio was centre fielder on the immediate pre- Second World War team that had Tommy Henrich and Charlie (King Kong) Keller as his mates in the outfield, Gehrig at first base. Tony Lazzeri at second, Frank Crosetti and later Phil Riz- zuto at short. Red Rolfe at third. Bill Dickey behind the plate, and Red Ruffing. Lefty Gomez. Monte Pearson and Johnny Murphy pitching. Later came the team -of Mickey Mantle. Hank Bauer. Gene Woodling. Billy Martin. Joe Collins. Whitey Ford. Vic Raschi. Allie Reynolds and Eddie Lopat. Under heavy prodding. DiMaggio was asked how many members of the current A's would have a chance of making either of those mighty machines "Reggie Jackson in the out- field. Sal Bando at third and Catfish Hunter maybe as pitcher." Joe-said. "I can't think of sny others. Those were very strong teams in those days, although we are inclined to forget them."

Gordie managed only two assists and his son ed another in a losing cause as Phoenix downed Houston Aeros 6-4 in one of four World Hockey Association games. In the others, Winnipeg Jets blanked Edmonton Oilers 4-0, Toronto Toros defeated In- dianapolis Racers 3-1 and Chi- cago Cougars edged Van- couver Blazers 2-1 Don Borgeson scored twice in the final period for the Roa- drunners to break a 4-4 tie and keep Phoenix in the unbeaten ranks.

At Toronto, rookie goaltender Jim Shaw, making his league debut, stopped 21 shots as the Toros gained their second victory in two starts The Toros got goals from Paul Henderson, Wayne Dillon and Brit Selby while Bob Whitlock's shot in the se- cond period was the only one to elude Shaw, who previously played for Nova Scotia Voyageurs of the American Hockey League. Indianapolis goaltender Andy Brown took offence to a shot by the Toros' Frank Mahovlich from 20 feet out at the top of the red circle. He caught the puck after it had hit his shoulder and he threw it at the Toro player. "Who's he Brown asked, referring to Mahovlich's denial that there was any intent on his part to injure Brown, who does not wear a face mask. "He couldn't even see the net from there. "He was trying to put it through me. There was no way he was going to get it by me from there." In Vancouver, Francois Rochon's goal with to play gave the Cougars the vic- tory Bob Liddington scored Chi- cago's first goal, while Duane Rupp replied for the Blazers. Ginne'll draws suspension SASKATOON (CP) The Western Canada Hockey League Friday suspended Pat Ginnell, General Manager and coach of Victoria Cougars for the next six games The suspension resulted from Ginnell's action in pull- ing his team off the ice Thurs- day night in the second penod of a game with Medicine Hat Tigers. The WCHL also suspended Victoria player Kim Clarkson for the next four games for receiving a match penalty in the same game. The incident started when Clarkson received the match 'penalty after fighting John Hilworth of Medicine Hat. Ginnell protested the decision and withdrew his team. The game was forfeited to Medicine Hat who were leading 4-3 at the time. League President Ed Chynoweth said the match penalty was given under a rule against "any player who deliberately head butts or attempts to head butt an oppo- nent during an altercation There was no scoring in the first period and the teams en- tered the third tied 1-1.
