Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - September 13, 1974, Lethbridge, Alberta Friday, September 13, 1974 THE LETHBRIOGE HERALD 15 Proud young man Harvie Pocza displays his Alberta and Canadian bowling banners. Pocza won the national title in Ottawa Wednesday and arrived home Thursday. Pocza did right thing How do you choose between training camp for the Calgary Centennials and a shot at the National Youth five-pin bowling championships7 Well, it's a tough decision to say the least, but it appears that Harvie Pocza of Lethbridge made the right one this past week when he opted for the bowling cham- pionships in Ottawa and came home with the top spot in the country in the junior boys' singles division. Harvie was also supposed to be in Calgary this week for the regular training camp of the Calgary Centennials of the Western Canada Hockey League. He had survived all of the cuts at the Centennial rookie camp held earlier this month, and was invited to work out with the veterans before assignment to one of the Calgary farm teams. Still, a trip to Ottawa for five days is quite an experience for a 14-year-old boy, and one would suppose that the Centennial brass would understand that fully. Harvie played three games with each of nine other provincial junior represen- tatives, and came out of the competition tied for top spot with Leonard Leveille of Earlton. Ontario. Both compiled 20-7 records Then, in a sudden-death championship roll-off. Harvie overwhelmed the Ontario lad by a 291 to 225 count to take the gold medal. During the five-day competition. Pocza lost twice each to Manitoba and British Columbia, and dropped single encounters to the Northern and Southern Ontario representatives. Harvie swept all three games against opponents from the Northwest Territories. Newfoundland. New Brunswick, and Quebec Aside from the competition itself, Har- vie and the nearly 300 other competitors from across the country were given the op- portunity to do some sight-seeing and tour- ing of the Ottawa area. One of the highlights for the participants, of course, was the Parliament buildings. The Youth Bowling championships are organized by the Youth Bowling Council and feature a series of competitions beginning in local bowling lanes and carry- ing right through to the national cham- pionships1. Since their inception in 1965, the cham- pionships have grown steadily and today feature a gala opening ceremony and a huge closing banquet. Over 800 people, including the mayor of Ottawa, the Minister of Tourism, and various other dignitaries, attended this year's closing banquet and awards presen- tation in the Ottawa Civic Centre. Next year's championships are expected to be even bigger, right from the regional playoffs to the Dominion finals in Calgary. Harvie qualified for provincial competi- tion this time around by besting com- petitors from his own Capri Lanes and then taking the zone championship. After winning the provincial singles title early this year, he was slated to compete in die Canadian championships last April. However, the event was postponed until this week due to an airplane strike which disrupted the original timetable. Anyway, it seems that not even a five month delay could keep Harvie from the winner's circle. And his opponents- will have to look for another trick next year, because Pocza has another year as a junior before he moves up to the senior division. Dodgers host Cincinnati in crucial three-game set ASSOCIATED PRESS Sparky Anderson doesn't feel intimidated as he prepares to meet the lordly Los Angeles Dodgers tonight. "Don't bury us yet." says the Cincinnati Reds manager Afler a 9-6. 6-2doubleheader sweep Thursday over Atlanta Braves. She Reds begin an im- portant three-game series with the Dodgers in Los The Ucds have no morale problem even though the Do- gfrs have hpafen them 1 1 of 15 times this season.

Yankees are the target of three contenders No one is conceding the pennant ASSOCIATED PRESS Bill Virdon isn't claiming the pennant and New York Yankees' three rivals in the torrid American League East are not conceding it.

"Next week it'd be nice to put together an eight-or nine- game winning said Baltimore manager Earl Weaver. "Let's be four here against Cleveland, three in New York and two in Boston." The Red Sox, who had dropped three games in a row and 11 of their last 13, nipped Cleveland 3-2 as Bill Lee scat- tered 10 hits and Dick McAuhffe drove in the winn- ing run with a sacrifice fly in the eighth inning. "Maybe this will snap us out of Lee said. "It better do something for us or else it's going to be a long winter." Cleveland manager Ken As- promonte said that the loss was not a crucial one in the In- dians' pennant hopes. "I don't see how it could he said. "We'd like to win it, but it's just another game on the road to the top." Elsewhere, Oakland A's edged Minnesota Twins 2-1, Texas Rangers and Chicago White Sox played to a 2-2 tie in a rain-shortened contest, and Detroit Tigers outslugged Mil- waukee Brewers 9-7 in 10 in- nings. Unbeaten Mike Wallace, pulled out of the Yankees bull- pen for his first AL start after 20 relief appearances, pitched three-hit ball for 7 2-3 innings and ran his record to 6-0 with help from Dick Tidrow. Loser Jim Palmer blanked the Yankees on four hits until Roy White opened the eighth with a single. With one out, Bobby Murcer singled off first baseman Bob Oliver's glove and White breezed to third when Oliver's hurried throw to Palmer covering the bag got away for an error Graig Nettles singled the first run across. Chris Chambliss slipped a runscoring single and the third run came in on a double by Lou Piniella. The Red Sox scored the win- ning run in the eighth on Carl Yastrzemski's double off Jim Perry, a sacrifice and Dick McAuliffe's sacrifice fly off Tom Buskey. Charlie Spikes homered for Cleveland. Sal Bando's sacrifice fly de- livered Bill North in the eighth inning with Oakland's tie-breaking run.

Oakland's Ken Holtzman pitched scoreless ball after al- lowing Minnesota a run in the first on Larry Hisle's triple and Bobby Darwin's single.

George Halas, Jr., club president and former general manager, announced that Finks, who left the Vikings last May and since has served as consultant to the NFL's Management Council, would be in complete charge of Bear operations. Prior to joinging the Vikings, Finks had served in the same capacity with Calgary Stampeders of the Canadian Football League. George Halas, Sr., Bear owner and a co-founder of the NFL, also appeared at an elaborate news conference at which Finks was introduced and said "we have acquired the most dynamic general manager in the league." Finks said he planned no immediate personnel changes in the Bears who currently appear to have little chance to improve last season's 3-11 record. is sold ANAHEIM. Calif. (AP) Frank Robinson, 39-year-old slugger who is the only man to be most valuable player in both major baseball leagues, was sold Thursday by California Angels to Cleveland Indians for the American League waiver price.

The sale came as no great surprise. The Angels had discussed a trade with New York Yankees early in the season and more recently had placed him on the waiver list, withdrawing his name when he was claimed by Baltimore Orioles. and relief ace John Miller notched a record-breaking 17th victory for the Tigers. Veryzer connected off Tom Murphy. Hiller, 17-10, broke the AL record of 16 victories by a re- liever, set by Boston's Dick Radatz in 1964.
