The comment was a refer- ence to last week's Kaiser In- ternational when he led by two strokes after 36 holes, then lost wilh two poor rounds on the weekend. Toronto' s George Knudson, who won the Kaiser event ;uit] had a share of the first-round lead here, dropped one stroke back Friday. It was the fourlh lime this season Palmer had been in po- sition !o win and had failed, and it extended his victory drought lo s.ome 15 months.

Knudson shot a 70 Lo go v.ith his opening-round 65 to put him one stroke off the pace along with Jack Nicklaus and Art Wall. Nicklaus fired a 69 and Wall a 68. At 136. just two strokes off, were Bobby Mitchell, Tvith a 66, and Dick Lotz, 69. Lee Trevino, the defending title-holder, took a 72 and was well back at 142. Wayne Vollmer of Vancouver stayed inside the 1-14 cut-oft mark a 72 for 143 while Gary Bowcrmnu of Toronto, who opened an R2 Thurs- day. before finishing Friday. Palmer, who hasn't had a bo- gey in two days, missed llneo. greens in Friday's play, but saved par on all of them, once with a 12-foot putt and liic other two by chipping close. He birched the second hole nine iron to and hit the flagstick on the llth hole with a seven iron second shot, then tapped in a short null. Tickets for the baskelballi games will be sold al Ihe door on a per session nish scat basis. The lickel entitles the fans to an evemng basketball session which consists of two games. Meanwhile according to reli- able sovirces, the ttirce visiting learns look stronger than ever with a number of veteran play- ers returning to each club. On the other hand, the Prong- horns can't be counted out of Ihe picture. This season Gary Bowie, coach of the Pronghoms, has assembled a ball club that should reach the newly formed Canada West Universities Ath- letic Association Basketball League playoffs. Besides the well-known Phil Tollestrup, Bowie has signed velerans like, Bill Magierowski, Doug Kempt, and Clark Sloan for Ihe 1972-7.1 season. Magierowski is in his third year with the club and was con- sidered the loam leader last year. He played, all his lugli school basketball in Raymond and then attended the C a 1 gary Moiuit Royal Junior College. In 1969, lie was a member of the Mount Royal Cougars (hat captured the Canadian junior championship title. During the same season lie was selected as an All-Cana- dian junior all-star at Ihe guard position. Last year, he was named to the second all-star team in the now defunct Weslern Canada Inler-Collegiate Alhletic Associ- alion Basketball League. Kempt is another graduate ot the Mount Royal Canadian championship team ajid is also in his Ihird year with the Pronghoms. At Kempt supplies all Ihe necessary strength needed at centre and will definitely be a big (ai'tor in the Pronghorns' success this year- Sloan, yet another member of the 1M9 Mount Royal squad, is back for his third term with the Pronghorns. The Pronghoms will count heavily on his superb defensive game. A key lo the Pronghorns' hopes may also be Danny Court. Alter a year sence from the game Court is back and coach Bowie was more than pleased wilh his performances in training camp and in exhibitions. 4NPY CAPF AH-TKHOOt. Forward Pass Lo get trophy after punching a four feel LEXINGTON, Ky. (AP) The Kentucky Slate Racing CoTim ission ruled Friday thai Calumet Farm's Forward Pass was Ihf; winner of Lhe IMS Kcn- lucky Derby should receive the gold trophy that goes with a victory in America's most famnus horse race. Forward Pass finished second in the Churchill Downs classic four years ago Lo Peter fuller's Dancer's Image, but Dancer's Image was found to have an il- legal drug in his system. Purse redistribution was or- dered immediately after Llio Derby, but Fuller liled appeals and the case was bi litigation luitil earlier thi.s year when the commission gave (he purse money to Calumet Exclusivs Deolar far "SQUIRE" The true Cadillac of Homei -I SULLY SAYS -By Put Sullivan STORY' STARTED, and I quote, "Derek Sanderson, John McKenzie and Benu'e Parent should be enough potential for any fledgling World Hockey Association team to make a success of its inaugural season." II wenl on lo say, apparently it isn't. McKenzie, the playing coacli is out with a broken arm, Parent sees more go behind him than his mates can score and Sanderson is finding oul you can't score from the penalty box. Philadelphia Blazers' owner Jim Cooper burst unto the professional hockey scene with pockets bulging, hoping to buy a club that just might be the first champions of the WHA. At present, it looks as though he lias bought the ice-cube concession in Hades. Blazers, to say the least, have thus far gone to blazes. They are winless in seven starts and with Parent on the sidelines, not much improvement is foreseen. (They finally won Friday They have come to realize that they are not in a league full of patsies. Blazers appear to be content to live off the fat they have stored up over an easy summer. Sanderson, the self-proclaimed highest paid ath- lete in the world, earns somewhere around per game. At present he is taking money under false pretences. He isn't in shape and according to re- ports, won't be until Christmas. He is making pretty good money For working part-time wouldn't you say? McKenzie, who earlier said his club appeared to be concerned more about how much money they were making than playing hockey, has some other ex- cuses why his team is the newest doormat in pro hockey. The team's too fat. Ihe schedule is rough, the club opened on Friday the 13th, the ice machine in their home rink didn't work so Iliey have been on the road two weeks, etc. Sanderson was heard to say a week ago that the Blazers and three or four oilier teams in the WHA were belter than Oakland Seals, Los Angeles Kings and Philadelphia Flyers of the National Hockey League. From current statistics, Sanderson should re- phrase his remarks to read "as far as the Blazers are concerned all teams in professional hockey are tough, we haven't found one we can heat yet." Tlie Blazers, McKenzie, Sanderson, Parent and Ihe rest of them, must now realize lhat they have to show something or suffer further embarrassment. The calendar on my wrist clock showed Oct. 25 two days ago leaving just two months until Christ- mas. Always happy to bring such glad tidings your way, f thought mayhe you would he interested in knowing that there are a number of sports books which will hit the bookstands in the next three or four v.'eeks. One of tlic more popular, if advance sale reports arc any indication, should be Harry Sinden's Hockey Showdown. Sinden's book is his day-by-day diary, dic- tated into a tape recorder from Ihe time of his appointment as coach of Team Canada until the series concluded. Bruce Kidd and John Macfarlane have published a book called The Death of Hockey. Jt is fell, however, that Hockey Showdown will overshadow the Kidd- Macfarlanc edition, Some other notable scripts you may be interested in are The Secrets of Winning Hockey by Emile Francis, coach of the New York Rangers and We Can Teach ,You To Play Hockey, ghost-written for Phil and Tony Esposilo by Kevin Walsh. A man named Howard Liss has written Hockey's Greatest. All-.Stiirs. Apparently Mr. Liss, so says Jim Cole-man, qualifies as a selector of hockey all- stars on the strength of writing, previously, biograph- ies of such distinguished puck carriers as Sandy Koufax, Mickey Mantle and Willie Mays. OKAY SO EAT THE HALF THAT'S COOKEb! _ CHOP'S ONLY HAUFCOOKEO- Atlanta trades Carty to Texas ATLANTA (AP) Rico Carty, Atlanta's injury-prone slugger who was involved in several hassles with team- mates during a stormy 10-year career with Lho Braves, was traded Friday to Texas Rangers for pitcher Jim Pan- ther in an inlerleague baseball swap. "We realize we're giving up a fine offensive player in said Eddie Robinson, Braves' director ot player personnel, "but we're doing (Jiis in hopes of bolstering our pitching staff." The 32-year-old outfielder won the National League hat- ting crown in 1970 with a .366 average, highest in Lhe major leagues since Ted Williams hit .388 in 1937. Carty, earning more than a year, was popular with the fans, but he had his problems with his team-mates, once taking a poke at Hank Aa- ron during a (cam flight and later throwing a at pitcher Ron Reed In a club- house hassle over ownership of a soiirvenir bat after a Bat Day promotion. Controversy also surround s the "ficeg Boy" of the baseball field. Earlier this year he was beaten up by three Atlanta po- licemen during an altercation on an Atlanta street lato one night. Carty also watched his bar- becue restaurant burn to the ground earlier this year. Despite those problems, his .317 lifetime average is one oE the best among active players. Carty, who joined the Braves in Milwaukee in 1963, missed the entire 1D68 season when ha overcame tuberculosis, re- turned in I960 lo his .342 de- spite three shoulder separa- Lions. The Dominican slugger also missed (lie 1D71 season after crushing his left leg in a colli- sion with Malty during a Dominican League game on Dec. 11, 1970.
