And they could very easily. Tom Seaver was on the mound and he's tough But then again, so is Jim "Catfish" Hunter Have you thought about a player of the series choice yet? It's going to be tough for the selectors no one player has been a standout. Some have been good, but not exceptional... As it stands now I would say that three Mets. Rusty Staub. Cleon Jones and Bud Harrelson have the inside track However, if John Maylack had to come back Sunday and should he win. he would get the nod Oakland Athletics haven't done much Like the Mets they have yet to get a complete game from any of their pitchers and their hitters have been silenced when it comes to the long ball.. Joe Rudi has been their best player. I would have to say with Bert Campaneris a close second Chump of the Series has been decided for quite sometime Charles 0. (for Oddball) Finley was the runaway leader And yes Mom. that was Joe Damaggio who threw out the first ball Ferguson Jenkins. Canada's most impressive contribution to major league baseball, will not be back in a Chicago Club un- iform for the 1974 season Fergie. who became Mr. Moody with the Cubs this past season asked to be traded Would Fergie be accommodated9 General manager John Holland said "we'll not only try to accommodate him. Jenkins will not be back in a Cub Apparently the Cubs have already received a valid offer for the big right-hander and will listen to more James A. Pattison. a west coast millionaire who likes football, has offered to buy the B.C. Lions of the Cana- dian Football League Pattison was rumored to be starting a new team in Vancouver if the new World Football Association ever got off the ground Said Pattison, "we feel at this time the ownership of the Lions is due for a change We'd like to see that change." The word is out that we will get to see more of the World Hockey Association on television this year How exciting It should be listed under the title CCC, for crappy Canadian content It ranks along with Stompin' Tom Connor for entertainment punch It was interesting to listen to Al Willis and his opinion of Charles Finley Willis, current- ly a tail gunner on a Molson beer truck here in Lethbridge. played for hockey's Charley 0 in Springfield. Eddie Shore Said Willis. "I've never met Finley but I feel as though I know him" Willis laughed that he played for him in Springfield" Shore didn't fire guys for making errors, they just got to park cars or sell programs He was the hockey coach who made ballet part of the ice time workouts Like Finley he has a bad heart. It's surprising someone hasn't scared one of the two to death The argument is already on as to whether or not Hank Aaron will have a long winter waiting to hit home run 714 or a short one He maintained his sense of humor to the last day however when one woman asked him if he was the home run king he told her "no. Dave Johnson is upstairs in the hotel asleep A story in one exchange paper says that Aaron may not live out the winter Sounds like a joke I know, but remember what happened to members of the Kennedy family when they became the news of the nation It still isn't clear if the San Diego Padres will move to Washington or not In the meantime Buzzie Bavasi. Padres' president says "I got tired of hearing my ball players bellyache all the time They should have sat in the press box and watch- ed themselves play sometimes" Richard Burke is taking bets that the Calgary Stampeders will make the Western Conference playoffs now that they have rid themselves of head coach Jim Duncan How do you like the fast start those Detroit Red Wings have gotten off to? I have always been a Red Wing fan but more and more I grow to dislike what has happened to them since they hired Ned Harkness I'm not any closer to the situation than you are but it makes me wonder how a team through the and 60's was one of the best, is now a step behind expansion During the course of the winter, when Earl Ingarfield is home and not beating the bushes for the New York Islanders, I'm going to get his opinion of the situation I asked him about it one time at the golf club and he sort of chuckled He just might have a few answers After all. he did play in the NHL for better than 13 years, and not 10 like I said last time 1 gave him some ink Ladies can show off Although latest statistics prove differently, the male sex continually spouts-off how superior their driving skills are to that of the opposite sex.

Bulldogs offer little resistance in 31-8 setback Collier brilliant, Rams romp to title By LLOYD YAMAGISHI Herald Sports Writer Ho-hum. Mr. Football does it again. Mr. Football, better known as Rick Collier of the Lethbridge Collegiate In- stitute Rams, came up with another one of his brilliant performances Friday night and led his teammates to a 31- 8 victory over the Winston Churchill Bulldogs. The lop-sided win at Henderson Stadium before 1.- 000 spectators was the Rams sixth in as many starts and enabled them to clinch the western conference pennant title in the Southern Alberta High School Football League. With only one week of action remaining in league play, the Rams' 6-1 record has now mathematically eliminated the Bulldogs' and Cougars' chances of wining the title. The Bulldogs sport a 3-3 record and share second place with the Catholic Central Cougars, who suffered a hard- fought 20-13 setback to the hands of the Medicine Hat High Mohawks in the Gas City last night Meanwhile at Henderson Stadium. Collier put on a one- man show as literally left the Bulldogs' defensive unit in the dust The hard-nosed fullback galloped to a pair of exciting Bowling Scores CAPRI BOWL JUNIOR'S SHOP Shirley Hertlem 270 Rose Nunweiler 259 Marg Koole 249.

In the only intradivision contest Calgary Centennials, leaders in the West, thumped third-place Medicine Hat Tigers 9-4. Saskatoon Blades polished off Victoria Cougars 10-2 to re- tain second place in the Eastern Division and Flin Flon Bombers held on to third spot with a 4-1 victory over Kamloops Chiefs. The only change in stan- dings as a result of Friday's games was Regina Pats" move to fourth place after pounding New Westminster Bruins 10-1. Swift Current Broncos, who didn't play Friday, have played one more game than Regina and fell into fifth place in the Eastern Division. Regina, capturing its third consecutive victory after dropping the first two games of the season, was led by Mike Wanchuk with three goals. Rookie Drew Callander got two and Rick Uhrich, Dave Faulkner, Dennis Sobchuk, Glen Burdon and Rob Laird added singles. Don Hay scored the only New Westminster goal on a power play at of the se- cond period after Regina streaked into an 8-0 lead. Calgary veteran Jerry Hol- land netted four goals.

MIDGET 'A' ELKS Sunday, Oct. 21 p.m. HENDERSON ICE CENTRE ADMISSION: Adults: 75e Students: 50e Cnildren: LETH. JUNIOR 'B' NATIVE SONS touchdowns which had the fans standing on their feet. His first spectacular touchdown came on a 98-yard run while his second measured 100 yards. During the evening, he also carried the ball 13 times amassing a record 251 yards on the ground To date he has chew- ed up 735 yards on 50 carries and could be well on his way to the SAHSFL rushing title. Rams' quarterback and place-kicker Randy Stevens, also came up with one of his better games last night. Stevens booted a 26-yard field goal, scored a two-yard major and added two extra points. The Bulldogs only scoring plays came in the first and se- cond halves, when Len Jarvie scored a single after missing a field goal attempt and a beautiful 60-yard pass-and-run play executed by quarterback Derek Redman to flanker Todd Poberznick. Meanwhile in Medicine Hat last night, the Cougars sported a 13-6 lead at halftime but couldn't hold on for the victory. The Mohawks tied the score 13-13 midway through the fourth quarter and then added a 40-yard touchdown with only five minutes remaining to send the Cougars home with their second straight defeat. Another rest Goaltender Larry Wanagas of the Lethbridge Longhorns was caught catching a quick rest recently. He will get a rest Sunday afternoon as the Longhorns play host to Edmonton Mets. He received a one-game suspension from the Alberta Junior Hockey League head office. Schlee feels superhuman NAPA, Calif. (AP) John Schlee, who said at times he felt superhuman, knocked five more strokes off par with a brilliant 67 and moved into the second round lead Friday in the Kaiser Inter- national open golf tour- nament. Schlee. who scored the first victory of his nine-year pro career earlier this season in the Hawaiian Open, had a 36- hole total of was 11 under par at the Silverado Country Club. The lanky, greying Schlee held a one-stroke lead over Ed Sneed. who moved into con- tention with a 66 for 134. Hale Irwin. winner oi' the Heritage Classic a month ago, followed at 135 after another 66. It was another two strokes back to Forrest Fczler. John Schroeder and first-round leader Grier Jones, tied at 137. Schroeder had a fiB, 71 and Jones slipped to a par 72. Johnny Miller, United States Open champion, was onoof six at 138 Miller, one of the few top names in this tour- nament, had a 68. Jack Nicklaus. Tom Wciskopf, Loo Trevino, Ar- nold Palmer, Gary Player. Bruce Crampton and Masters champion Tommy Aaron all are skipping this event for one reason or another. "It had never happened to me Schlee said, "but at times out there today I felt superhuman. For the first 27 holes of the tournament I was 12 under 10 under for the last then it was brought to my attention what I was doing and I promptly choked. Schlee, 34-year-old veteran who was a career struggler until breaking through in the Hawaiian Open early this season, played the south course at Silverado, while most, of the rest played the toupher, north course. All players surviving the of them with scores of 144 or play the north course the final two rounds. Schlee birdied the 10th and llth holes with matching cightfoot putts, saved par by chipping to three feet on the next, rifled a shot from a fairway trap to within 30 in- ches of the pin on the next hole, dropped a pair of three- to four-foot putts on the 16th and 17th holes for birdies and canned a 30-footcr on the 18th hole. "That's when I started he said. According to Cougars' coach Dean Dahl, his club's loss was due mainly to the in- jury of his rugged fullback Steve Devcic. Devcic, who gave the Cougars their first touchdown, suffered torn knee ligaments on the first play of the second half which ruined the offensive unit's running game. Devcic wasn't alone on the injury list as Cougars' George Conrad sustained similar in- juries. The only other major score registered by the Cougars was a six-yard touchdown by Guy Pomahac. The victory also assured the Mohawks the eastern con- ference pennant title and they will now meet the Rams in the championship game Nov. 2. EXTRA YARDS The LCI marching band was out- standing during the halftime entertainment and all those who helped in purchasing their new uniforms will be happy to know their efforts didn't go to waste In fact, the football game was more- or-less anti-climax after the marching band completed their numbers In all fairness to the opposition. Collier should have to carry the ball running backwards. Longhorns play once Lethbridge Longhorns and the Pass Red Devils will have a quiet weekend this time around in the Alberta Junior Hockey League. Each club will play just once as the schedule sees only three games on tap. The Red Devils will be at home to the Edmonton Mets tonight at Red Devils, currently atop the standings of the six-team league with a 6-1 ledger will be looking for their seventh win of the year. Meanwhile, the Lethbridge Longhorns will host the Mets Sunday afternoon at Henderson Ice Centre at two o'clock. Longhorns are battling to vacate the league basement. The locals have dropped four in a row, including a 6-2 set back to the Mets in Edmonton last weekend. To make matters somewhat worse two Longhorns receiv- ed suspensions from league president Jim Scoular as a result of a skirmish with Red Deer Rustlers on their only visit to town this year thus far. Goaltender Larry Wanagas wandered too far from his crease and will rest for one game while Ken Klinkhammer got a three- game sitdown as a result of being the third man in a fight. Said Scoular "we hope to br- ing about an end to five and six-player brawls." Suspen- sions, it might be said, could be the best answer. Following Sunday's action the Longhorns are idle until next Sunday when they travel to Red Deer.
