Viewing Games expensive, athletes to be reimbursed 11-year old invents machine Perfect umpire is here DALLAS (AP) Even baseball fanatics will tell you the sport is so tied by tradi- tion that there's been only one major change in the rules for half a cen- use of the designated bitter in the American League. Even so, a sixth grade inventor will tell you the role of the game's often disputed umpire could become restricted to making merely judgment calls on the base runners. Tom Perryman, 11, has designed a machine to call strikes and balls so accu- rately there couldn't be any argument. After a study of the renaissance in general and scientist-artist-inventor Leonardo da Vinci in particular, teacher Stephen Blanchard directed Tom and his history classmates at the private Greenbill School "to invent something practical." Tom, rated one of the top science pupils at the school, came up with his idea, he said, because "I just got tired of seeing bad calls" in baseball. Originally he figured on a machine to move on tracks in a half circle behind the batter and catcher, movable to face both left and right-handed batters, his card- board model was complete with a blower at the bottom to dust off home plate. The device would employ sound waves meeting perpendicularly to outline the strike waves rising from a crystal beneath the plate to determine the width and horizontal waves from the machine to measure a high or a low ball, programmed with each batter's strike zone between knees and shoulders. Only the balls passing within that area would register as strikes. After conferring with his father, Dr. Ray Perryman, the inventor decided to eliminate the bulky machine. Instead, the idea calls for an energized crystal beneath home plate to determine strikes and balls by computing the time it takes for sound waves to leave the crystal, strike the ball and echo back to re- energize the crystal. Again the individual strike zone (between shoulders and knees) would be pre-determined by a computer pro- grammed for each batter. Balls on the in- side or outside would not register because they would pass on either side of the waves. What would a fiery say, Texas Rangers' Billy Martin-do when he wanted to argue about the gadget's call on a strike or a ball? suggested Tom, "he could kick the machine." Sanderson can't figure ice time NEW YORK (AP) Madison Square Garden hockey fans are puzzled because Derek Sanderson isn't getting much playing time with New York Rangers. SALES PERSONNEL SERVICO CENTRE Company Benefit On the Job Training Apply in Person Sanderson can't figure it out either. "There must be a reason, I just don't know what it says Sanderson, who came from Boston Bruins to New York in a trade just after the National Hockey League draft last summer. In the first period of Sunday night's 1-4) loss to Vancouver Canucks, Sanderson played one minute and 16 seconds. He got on the ice twice in the second period, collecting in playing time, and managed three shifts in the third period to total just more than six min- utes of action. Those don't appear to be the numbers fans thought about when the trade was announced in June. And those certainly aren't the figures that go with a reported salary. Those are the figures of a at present, is Derek Sanderson's exact status. Still, cheers of approval go up from the Garden galleries at those infrequent times The Turk hits the ice. "I hear them all Sanderson said Monday. Stampeders, Lions romp to wins Bob Odney proved to be a one-man wrecking crew Mon- day night as he scored six touchdowns and six converts to lead the Stampeders to a 48- 0 romp over St. Mary's Eagles in Lethbridge Minor Football League action at Henderson Park. The Eagles had won their first game of the year last Wednesday against the Eskimos, but they were not ready for Odney's outburst. Chu Jank scored the other six points for the Stamps on a 40- yard touchdown gallop. In the other game Monday, the Lions clobbered the Eskimos 34-0 with Dave Ray and Tim Hansen scoring two touchdowns each. Kelly Firth had another ma- jor score for the Lions and Mark Tokariuk booted four converts. The final league game will be played Wednesday night when St Mary's meets the Bombers at Henderson beginning at 7 p.m. It was announced that the league's banquet will be held Friday, November 8 at the Civic Centre beginning at p.m. Further details and the guest speaker wUl be announc- ed at a later date. Wardens, Guides meet a There will be a senior coun- cil meeting for Junior Forest Wardens and Girl Forest Guides Wednesday at the Lethbridge Fish and Game hut. All interested adults and senior council members are invited to attend. The meeting will start at 9 p.m. VIENNA (CP) It will cost between and to attend both the opening and closing ceremonies at the 1976 Summer Olympic games in Montreal. That and other information on the first-ever Olympics in Canada is in a report presented today by com- missioner general Roger Rousseau of the Montreal organizing committee to the 75th session of the Inter- national Olympic Committee The Montreal committee expects that about four million tickets will be sold for the Games and that the poten- tial net income will be million. The ticket prices vary from to for various athletic events, although on the se- cond-last day of the Games it will cost for a top seat to watch the conclusion of the track and field events. A spokesman for the organ- izing committee said the aver- age ticket price for events in Montreal would be while the average price for com- petitions outside the city would be There are several preliminary and early-round events being held outside of Montreal, including s9ccer and handball. Canada will get 65 per cent of the available tickets for the Games, the report said, while the United States will receive 10 per cent Europe will get 7.5 per cent, Mexico and the Carribean 1.5, Latin America 0.7, Africa 0.8, Asia 1.9 and Australia and New Zealand 1.05 per cent. The allocation was based on the population of the area, the per capita income, the dis- tance from Montreal, the number of tourists from the area that visited Quebec in 1973, the number of athletes taking part per country and per sport, accommodation facilities and the number of tickets sold by Munich prior to the 1972 Summer Games. The sale of tickets will be handled by agencies recom- mended by the national Olym- pic committee of the country involved while the Montreal organizing committee will set up an agency to look after ticket sales in Canada. An organizing committee spokesman said that for events such as the opening and closing ceremonies, a lottery system would be used to dis- tribute the tickets. cally revised eligibility rule adopted Monday by the Inter- national Olympic Committee The rewritten Rule 26, which will be in effect for the 1976 Summer Games at Montreal, permits payment to cover loss of earnings while training and expense money for food, lodging, transpor- tation, equipment, medical care and insurance. Under the old rule, athletes could be compensated for missing work to train only during the 30 days before the Olympics and 60 days in any one year. The new rule also makes eligible for Olympic competi- tion physical education instructors at elementary schools and lets competitors wear advertising on their un- iforms, although advertising royalties must go to their association. Athletes who are profes- sionals in one sport still won't be allowed to compete in the Olympics in a second sport. However, competitors will be allowed to accept prizes won in competitions within "the limits of the rules es- tablished by the respective international federations and can accept academic and technical scholarships." Meanwhile, the organizing committee for the 1976 Games said Monday it has completed financial arrangements for construction of the Olympic village. The Montreal group said million of the million for the project will come from Central Mortgage and Hous- ing Corp. The organizing committee will pay million and million will come from a private investor. The press sub committee of the IOC an- nounced approval of Montreal's plans for press ac- commodation and accreditation. Bears edge Packers CHICAGO (AP) Chicago's Garry Lyle intercepted a pass by Green Bay quarterback Jerry Tagge in the closing seconds of a National Football League game Monday night, assunng the Bears of a 10-9 win over the Packers. Lyle's interception was one of several key plays made by the Bears late in the game to preserve their win. Carl Garrett not only got the two yards he needed for a clutch first down but rambled 18 yards to get the Bears out of a serious hole in the closing minutes. Bob Parsons then punted out on the Green Bay four-yard line and still the Bears didn't clinch the triumph until Lyle's intercep- tion. DO SCORING EARLY The Bears scored the first two times they had possession of the ball to take a 10-0 lead and then hung on while Chester Marcol kicked three Green Bay field goals in the second half. Mirro Roder booted a 23- yard field goal midway in the first period and Gary Huff hit Charley Wade with a 57-yard touchdown pass minutes later. It was Wade's first pro touchdown although he leads the Bears in receptions. The Bears nursed the lead through the first half and five minutes into the second half Marcol booted a 34-yard field goal after Al Matthews had in- tercepted a Huff pass. Later in the period, Ted Hendricks intercepted another Huff pass and return- ed 44 yards to the Chicago 37- yard line. But the Packers were halted on the 16 yard line and had to settle for a 33 yard field goal.
