Chicago Dropped To Third Place By Phillies Pirates Break Out Of By THE ASSOCIATED PRESS The Pittsburgh Pirates were beginning to wonder if they'd ever win again.

Green Waits For Verdict OTTAWA (CP) Defence- man Ted Green of Boston Bruins appears in Provincial Court Thursday afternoon to hear the verdict on a charge of common assault brought against him as the result of a stick-duel in a National Hockey League exhibition game here Sept. 21, 1969. If Judge M. J. Fitzgerald finds him guilty, of assaulting winger Wayne Maki of St. Louis Blues, Green is liable to a maxi- mum jail sentence of six months or a fine. The case is an important one for the NHL and all professional sports in Canada. It's the first time a charge of common as- sault ever has been laid against a hockey player for actions dur- ing a game and could lead to prosecutions for what have be- come common-place fights and boisterous play in hockey and football games. Edward Houston, Green's lawyer, said during the trial, that there wouldn't be enough room in Canadian courtrooms if i lackey and football players could be charged with assault arising from playing Uleir sport. Crown Attorney John Cas- sells, who said he is a hockey fan, said it is important to de- termine whether fights on the playing field leading to injuries should be brought before the courts. Maki was found not guilty earlier this year of assault caus- ing bodily harm arising from the same stick-swinging duel. Judge Edward Carter found that Maki was only defending himself when he clubbed down Green in the exhibition game. Green went through three head operations as a result of the blow and missed tlie entire 1959-70 season. He is expected to return to the Boston defence this season. In surprise testimony at the trial, Green pleaded self-def- ence. He said Maki held him by the sweater and later had speared him in the testicles after they bumped together in a fight for a loose puck behind the Boston goal. Golf's Million Dollar Winner COIL UPPER BODY The most successful modern golfers all realize ,lhat the upper body coils more than the lower body on the backswing. If this upper-body coil is not achieved, you will not be able to build up sufficient tension for a powerful swing at the ball. If the lower body, especially the hips, turns too much going back, you'll have a dif- ficult time in controlling your swing. bl. One way to make your- self coil is to practice so that your back faces the target at the lop of the backswing. Keep yourlcft arm reasonably straight and your left heel relative- ly close to the ground. You'll feel a certain taut- ness all along you left side if you swing in this manner.
