Chicago Black Hawks, at Chi- cago Stadium, ami Philadelphia Flyers, at Quebec City, were the final arrivals. Toronto Maple Leafs and Detroit Ked Wings were first off the mark Sept. 9. the Leafs at Maple Leaf Gardens and Detroit at Port Huron, Mich. First serious training casualty was goaltender Rocky Farr. The Buffalo Sabre rookie es- caped with a cracked left cheek- bone when a deflected shot struck his face mask during a scrimmage a t Peterborough, Ont. Fan-, 23, underwent surgery in Toronto Monday night and will lose at least 10 days of training camp. Meanwhile. Toronto winger Hon Ellis skated Monday but did not take part in the Leaf scrimmage. Ellis, Toronto's top goal scorer last year, injured his knee Friday in a collision with defenceman Mike Pelyk McClinton Will Retire KANSAS CITY (AP) Run- ning back Curtis McClinton of Kansas City Chiefs said Monday he is retiring from professional football. McClinton, who has played pro football for eight seasons, gave no reason and did not indi- cate what he plans to do. Kansas City coach Hank Stram said at the same time that quarterback Tom Flores and running back Richard Arm- strong have been placed on waivers by the National Foot- ball League team. Flores was in his 10th year as a pro. Armstrong is a rookie. McCUnton, 31, was Rookie of the Year in the old. American Football League. and is expected to miss the Leafs' first exhibition game at Ottawa Thursday against St. Louis Blues. Boston veteran Johnny Bucyk, whose knee was injured in a boating accident in August, is expected at the Bruin camp hi London, Ont., Wednesday. Serge S a v a r d, recovering from a broken leg, skated for the first time with Montreal Canadiens and described his 15- minute session as tiring. Doc- tors estimate it will be at leasl two weeks before the defence- man can take part in regular workouts. Meanwhile, the Bruins an- nounced two more fenceman Dallas Smith and for- ward Don Marcottc. Other regu- lars from last year who have reached contract terms with Boston include Fred Stanfield Wayne Cashman and Wayne Carleton. Bobby OIT, Ted Green, Rick ANDY CAPP WHAT ABOUT1 NEK MISSUS? EVERY TIME 1 'cB A BRAIN-WASHED BOURGEOIS OUi BAT, CLAMS Up Nj DUNNQ, I'VE NEVER BEEN ABLE TO DISCUSS POLITICS WITH Pirates Acquire Mudcal Grant PITTSBURGH (AP) Pitts- burgh Pirates, looking for more pitching strength for the Na- tional League East pennant drive, acquired ace reliever Jim (Mudcat) Grant from Oakland Athletics Monday. Pittsburgh general manager Joe L. Brown refused to dis- close what the Athletics re- ceived for the right-hander, who has compiled a 6-2 record with 24 saves and a 1.71 earned run average, among the best in die American League. TRADITION Kyu Whiiky-a proud product of Canadian Sclienlcy Distilleries Lid. Smith and Phil Esposito are in the final year of extended con- tracts. Pierre Bouchard, son of a for- mer Montreal defence great, Emile (Butch) Bouchard, was signed to the Canadiens' blue- lice corps. He performed last year wifn Montreal Voyageur.s, Montreal's farm team in the American Hockey League. Vancouver Canucks, mean- while, will look at six goal- tenders during their three exhi- bition games this weekend to determine who they will carry along with veteran Charlie Hodge. Hodge apparently has the No. 1 position sewn up. Coach Hal Laycoe gave the Montrealer permission to arrive late "be- cause he's in good physical con- dition and doesn't need the pre- liminary training." He was drafted from Oakland Seals last June. In Calgary vying for the back-up position behind Hodge are Ed Dyck, from Calgary Centennials of the Western Can- ada Hockey League; Dale Hal- terman, University of Calgary; Dune Wilson, drafted from Phil- adelphia Flyers; and veteran minor league pros George Gard- ner, Lynn Zimmerman and Serge Aubrey. MEET NORTH STARS Vancouver, with a 10-game pre-season schedule, plays at Edmonton Friday, Calgary Sat- urday and Winnipeg Sunday, all against Minnesota North Stars. General manager Bud Poiie said the main problem his new NHL club lias faced in camp is finding an interpreter so Finlan- der Lasse Oksanen "could feel at home." Oksanen, 27, was captain of Finland's national team and scored 32 goals in 22 league games at Tampere last year. Fifty-nine players turned up at the Flyers' camp. General manager Keith Allen said most of those on hand reported in good shape. Also on hand was goaltender Doug Favell, recovering from a severed Achilles tendon suffered in a freak dressing room acci- dent last vear. He did not dress. Cubs, Pirates Idle Monday Top Spot By THE ASSOCIATED I'HKSS Defence, says Gil Hodges, could be 'tlic name of the game in the final stages of the Na- tional League's East Division title countdown. To prove his point, New York lids keep digging in, holding the line and scooping up every- one else's fumbles. "Our defence has picked up so much in recent the Mots' m a n a g c r said before Monday night's gamo against Montreal Expos. "A thing like that goes unnot- iced but it shows up in your pitching. The pitching looks so much stronger." Then the Mets backed Danny Frisella's solid relief pitching with airtight play in tire field before capitalising on a Mont- real defensive breakdown for four unearned runs in the 10th inning and a 9-5 victory that sent them into a virtual first- place deadlock with idle Pitts- burgh Pirates. New York trails the Pirates by less than one percentage point, with the third-place Chi- cago Cubs, who also had the day off, one game off the pace. Los Angeles Dodgers snapped San Diego Padres' five-game winning string 12-4 end San Francisco Giants outlasted At- lanta Braves 7-5 in the only other games played Monday night. Two scheduled American League An- gels at Minnesota Twins and Oakland Athletics at Milwaukee rained out. New York fell behind the Expos 4-0 as rookie Clyde Ma- shore ripped a two-run homer off Ray Sadecki in the second inning for his first major league hit, and then singled in the fourth to ignite another two-run flurry.. Three walks, three singles and an error by third baseman Coco Laboy gave the Mets five runs in the fifth but the Expos Clay Okayed Ln New York NEW YORK (AP) Former heavyweight boxing champion Cassius Clay was granted the right to fight in New York state by a federal judge Monday. Clay had brought suit against the New York State Athletic Commission under his Muslim name, Muhammad Ali. He had been barred from fighting here since his conviction for refus- ing to enter the armed services. Judge Walter R. Mansfield said the commission's ban was "arbitrary and and a departure from the com- mission's "established practice of granting licenses to appli- cants convicted of crimes and military offences." McDowell Released CLEVELAND, Ohio (AP) Cleveland Indians pitcher Sam McDowell was released Monday from Shaker Medical Centre after treatment for a mild con- cussion and a head wound suf- fered when ha was attacked and robbed in downtown Cleveland Sunday night. McDowell said at least three men attacked him as he was re- turning to his hotel suite.

But catcher John Bateman's throw Says: Golf's Million Dollar Winner SWING UPRIGHT FOR ACCURACY upright There is a good reason why the upright swing produces greater accuracy thin the flat swing. The upright swing keeps, the clubhead moving along the target line for a long- er period of time in the impact area. It approaches the back of the ball more directly, and naturally hits .the ball straighter. since the clubface is square to 70- the target. The flat swing sees the clubhead ap- proach the ball from a severe inside arc, touching the target line only mo- mentarily before coming back inside and giving the ball a glancing blow. Study the accompany- ing drawing. It should give you ample motivation to swing in as upright a man- ner as possible. 1970 NA11. 3 Grant Says No atcli? MINNEAPOLIS Bud Grant pulled out Kansas City Chiefs file Monday and played down the idea that their National Football League sea- son opener Sunday would lie a grudge match. The Chiefs defeated Minne- sota 23-7 in the Super Howl Jan. 11. There has been one question we have been postponing for a said Grant, former coach of Winnipeg Blue Bomb- ers of the Canadian Football League. "After the announce- ment of the schedule last spring, everyone wanted to talk about the Chiefs'. "Now we have all week to talk about them. While Kansas City represents the champion- ship of professional football, they also represent our first league game. "Based on last year's per- formance, our first league game is against the best team in pro- fessional football. "We have to. forget about Kansas City after Sunday and get ready for the next one." TO STUDY FILMS Grant said he has seen the Super Bowl game film three times and will study it again this week, as well as films of the Chiefs' last two exhibition games. "Basically they are the same football Grant said. "They are still formidable, they're doing the same things and they will attack the same way." While saying the Vikings would not treat Sunday's game as a grudge match, he did say the recollection will all come back. But we can't win the Super Bowl. We can win a league game. Emotional value; Football Cancelled For J970 In Schools No Agreement Reached CALGARY (CP) About 600 students are without a high school football program today because of a 15-day coaching dispute which could not be set- tled after a six-hour meeting Monday. Negotiators for the Public School Board and its 75 male teacher coaches argued for mcst of a board of industrial relations hearing in an attempt to break the dispute over com- pensation for the time coaches donate after regular hours to nm inter-school sports. But nothing was settled and the students lost their eighl- weck football program. It was decided, however, that salary talks for Calgary's public school teachers would resume Sept. 24, after a one- week cooling-off period. Spokesmen for bolh the coaches and the board voiced that they could nol wive the coaching dispute to ill eel, a Holiday afternoon leadline for getting the 16- .cam football league operating. Each side blamed the other for causing the deadlock. Trustee Catherine Martini, chairman of the hoard's teach- er salary negotiating sub-com- mittee, said: "1 find it very regretful that the coaches did not see fit to give any trust to their negotiat- ing committee (Alberta Teach- ers Association) or to the trus- tees." She stood firmly behind the board's stand that compensa- tion for coaches must be negotiated in the proper course of items to be discussed in the 1971 teacher-board salary talks, not earlier or as a special item by itself. General Meeting Tlie Lclhbridgc Minor Hockey Association will hold a general meeting tonight al Adams Ice Ccnlre al An election of officers will be held al this meeting and anyone interested in attending u welcome. The coaches insisted through president Carl Saarinen that the board must provide written assurance that it will provide a special clause in the 1971 con- tract giving coaches whatever compensation can be negoti- ated. "ff the school board wants the high schccl sports program, they've got to be willing to take a position and support it finan- cially." Meanwhile, Robert VI. Pul- leyblank, president of the Cal- gary Boys' Senior High School Athletic Association, said the football program which the as- sociation organizes each year, is officially cancelled. "I've devoted 10 to 14 hours a day making representa- tions from one side to the oth- er. There's nothing more I can do now." He said the fate of volley- ball, basketball and track and field programs will be decided for boys as each season ap- proaches, if the dispute con- tinues. satisfaction would be a belter word." The Vikings won four and lost two in the pre-season exhibition schedule. hit Caspar in ihc band, and ho came on to score the lie-break- ing, run. Wayne Carroll's run-scoring double, a walk, Ron Swoboda's sacrifice fly imt Donn Clenden- on's run-producing single com- pleted the rally, enabling Iho Mets to square their season ser- ies against the last-place Expos at eight victories apiece. The Dodgers softened up San Diego with a six-run salvo in the first inning and coasted home as Wes Parker drove in three more runs with a single and double. Parker, with 102 runs batted in, is the first Dodger to top 100 since Tommy Davis and Frank Howard eight years ago. Left-hander Claude Osleen survived 11 San Diego hits, in- cluding a three-run homer by Ivan MiuTell in the ninth, for his 15lh victory of the year. Frank Johnson, a mid-game replacement for ailing WiDie McCovey, lined a two-run single off knuc'kleballer Phil Niekro in the sixth, keying a four-run rally lliat earned the Giants past the Braves. Frank Reberger squared his pitcliing mark at C-G with help from veteran Don McMahon, who hurled perfect relief over the final 21-3 innings.
