The controversial owner of Oakland Athletics says he won't let go of his manager Dick Williams without a court, if necessary. "If I do let Williams go. I'll have to be compensated. And compensated handsomely." He said Wednesday he has no intention now of giving Williams a free hand to negotiate with another club. By threatening legal action. Finley who nearly stole the show at the World'Series with the firing of his second base- man, may have started another ruckus involving New York Yankees and Detroit Tigers. Williams, who has a con- tract with Finley through 1975. announced his resigna- tion Sunday just after the Athletics won the Series over New York Mets. He was reported to be head- ed to the Yankees to replace Ralph Houk. on his way to Detroit as manager. "I'm surprised." said Wil- liams from his home in Rivera Beach. Fla. "I have high regard for Mr. Finley. He never went back on his word before." Williams said he has not talked with the Yankees nor have the Yankees approached him. Finley said he "stunned" Yankee officials at an Ameri- can League meeting in Chicago Tuesday when he denied them permission to Williams about succeeding Houk. "I said 'absolutely no.'" Finley recalled a conversation with George Steinbrenner, Yankee board chairman, and Gabe Paul, Yankee president. "There was quite a pow- wow between the Yankee and Tiger officials after I made it plain I wasn't going to let Williams go for Finlev said. The University of Lethbridge Pronghorns will officially open their first ever Alberta College Athletic Conference Hockey League season on the weekend. Red Deer College Kings will help the Pronghorns start their initial year in the ACACHL with games set to go Friday and Saturday nights at at the Henderson Lake Ice Centre. The Pronghorns, who toiled in the City Recreation Hockey League for the past four years, found greener pastures by accepting a two-year com- mitment to join the ACACHL commencing this season. Until this year, a lack of finances had held the U of L hockey program at a stand- still, but the student body and the athletic department joined forces to supply the necessary funds to operate the hockey team at a more competitive level. In their 1973-74 season, the Pronghorns will play a 24- game schedule competing against the Red Deer Kings. Mount Royal College Cougars, Olds College Broncos. Southern Alberta Institute of Technology Trojans. Northern Alberta Institute of Technology Ookpiks and Camrose Lutheran College Vikings. The 24 games are further divided equally into a home- and-home basis. Meanwhile local and dis- trict hockey enthusiasts have never had a really good oppor- tunity to take a look at the collegiate level hockey. Although the ACACHL's calibre of hockey is undoubt- fully inferior to' that of the Canada West University- Hockey League it should still provide plenty of action. Ac- cording to reliable sources the calibre of the ACACHL lies between the Alberta Junior Hockey League and the Western Canada Junior A Hockey League. A number of rules which differ from the Canada Amateur Hockey Association will make the game a little faster than usual which means plenty of action. Onq of the rules which was implemented for the 1973-74 season is the elimination of the centre line (red line) which further eliminates any two-line pass infractions. The neutral zone will now be the area from blue line to blue line. Meanwhile Pronghorns' coach Gary Bartlett isn't as ready as he hoped to be for the opening game Friday night. "We're not playing as well as I expected at this time, but it'll come." "You'll have to remember we have only six or seven players back from last year and the kids are just getting to know each other." "It's hard to play with players you don't know that well." he said. Bartlett could be right when you take a glance at the Pronghorns' team roster. Only seven players. Michael Hornberger. Wayne Kist. Rod Morrice. Jon Petrunia. Guy Smith. Wally Tunow and Mike Weisgerber are the only players back from last year while the remaining players come from all over western B.C Canada. Other players include, Rob Amatto, Blairmore; Neil Besplug. Lethbridge: Norman Borggard. Kamloops. B.C.: Nelson Doenz. Warner; George Garner. Lethbridge: Fred Hoffarth, Lethbridge: Duane Johnson. Creston. Bill Lasby. Edmonton: Vince Minifie. Fernie: Peter Schalk. Cranbrook: Jim Stewart. Lethbridge: Craig Walters. Lethbridge; and Alvaro Zanolli. Taber. Well anyway you want to look at it. the Pronghorns' players better get to know one and another pretty fast because AI Ferchuk and the Kings will be in town tomorrow night. Ferchuk, who coached the Pronghorns last season and pitched for the Lethbridge Lakers over the summer, is currently instructing at the Red Deer College as well as coaching Kings.

The Lions captured their se- cond straight Lethbridge Minor Football League pen- nant title by blasting the Eskimos 34-0 at Henderson Stadium Wednesday night.
