A REGULAR GUY Delivering newspapers isn't the toughest part of a carrier's job. But, collecting for those papers and paying his bill on time is, simply because he has no control over his customer's response when he comes to collect. He wants to keep his collections on a regular basis, but if you make him call back two or three times, his schedule is disrupted, and he can't do his job right. You can help him be a regular guy by having the money ready when he comes to collect the very first time. And, after all, shouldn't we be setting an example for these young people when it comes to paying bills on time? The Lethbridge Herald TO POWDER OUft N06E9, PET- Begin to show heels Leeds United moving LONDON (Reuter) Rirst Division leaders Leeds United pulled further away from the pack with a 1-0 victory over Manchester City in their English League soccer match today Mick Bates scored the winn- ing goal after 75 minutes and Leeds now has taken 23 points from a possible 26 and is un- beaten this season after 13 league games. While Leeds won, nearest rivals Burnley and Derby County were both held to scoreless draws. Second- placed Burnley could do no more than take one point from its home game against Manchester United and Der- by, playing for the first time under new manager Dave MacKav was held by West Ham United. Everton moved up to join Burnley and Derby on 18 points with a 2-0 win over Bir- mingham Goalkeeper Gary Sprake, Birmingham's recent signing from Leeds, had an unhappy game, scoring on his own goal when he pushed a cross from John Connolly into his net. The big London Derby match between Queen's Park Rangers and Arsenal resulted in a 2-0 win for newly promoted Rangers. It was Rangers' first home win of the season, their previous five all having ended in draws. Don Givens and Stan Bowles scored the goals which took Rangers to their win over Arsenal, who are still searching for the form which carried them to the league and cup double in 1971. Young defender Brendan Batson was booked in the 52nd minute for a dangerous challenge on Rangers goalkeeper Phil Parkes and two minutes later deflected the ball for Givens to shoot his side in front Coventry continued to falter after an ambitious start to the season, losing 3-0 at Stoke, and Tottenham suffered another home defeat, going down 2-0 to Newcastle. Stewart Barraclough and Tommy Gibb scored for New- castle, now fifth in the table. Ipswich, whose 4-0 win over Lazio Roma was the best English performance in Euro- pean competition Wednesday, kept up its impressive form with a 2-0 home win over Wolverhampton Wanderers. Peter Morris missed a penalty for Ipswich but seven minutes later made amends with his side's first goal. League champions Liver- pool stepped into sixth place in the table after Kevin Keegan, who scored in the 27th minute, earned them a 1-0 home win over Sheffield.
