Stove Pipe and more than 200 other horses will take part in the nine-day Lethbridge Fall Race Meet which opens Friday. Stove Pipe is owned by Marshall Willard of Milo. Nine-Day Stay Begins Race Meet Under Clear skies and bright Sep- tember weather greeted horses, fans and riders alike this afternoon as the M70 Leth- bridge Fall Hace Meet got un- der way at Whoop-Up Downs.

Houston Gives Cincinnati Western Title Mets Gain Ground By Not Even Pla By THE ASSOCIATED PEESS New York Mets liavo discov- ered the knack of gaining round in the topsy-turvy Na- .innal League east race. They simply don't play. The Mets took the day off Thursday and consequently couldn't lose. The same couldn't be said of first-place Chicago Cubs. The Pirates and Cubs foolishly showed up for their games and lost, allowing the Mets to gain ground on both of them. Philadelphia Phillies knocked off Pittsburgh Pirates 3-2, cut- ting the Pirates' lead to 1% games over New York Mets. The Cubs bowed to St. Louis Cardinals 9-2 and remained two games behind. Elsewhere in the National League Thursday, San Fran- cisco Giants nipped San Diego Padres 4-3 and Houston Astros whipped Los Angeles Dodgers 10-5, eliminating the Dodgers and clinching the West Division race for idle Cincinnati Reds. RECORD THE SAME Over the last nine games, first-place Pittsburgh is same as second-place New York. Chicago has charged into contention with a 54 mark over the same period. The Pirates fell victim to a suicide-squeeze bunt against the Phillies, spoiling the comeback of Doc Ellis, who made his first start in seven weeks. Ellis was leading 2-1 when he was lifted after six innings of work. Don Money walked with one out against reliever John Lamb and then scooted home with the tying run on Ron Stone's triple. Pinch hitter Terry Harmon followed with the squeeze bunt as Stone carried the winning ran home. The Pirates threatened in the eighth when Gene Clines opened with a double, his third hit ot the game, and Jose Pagan fol- lowed with a single. But Clines was cut down at the plate on Scott Reid's throw to preserve the victory for the Phillies. BOY, WERE THEY BEAT The Cubs, absorbed a 22-hit pounding at the hands of the Cardinals with Joe Torre, Lou Brock and Luis Melendez col- lecting four apiece. Torre had a triple, two dou- Western Club Leads By Two NEW (CP) WESTMINSTER, B.C Peterborough Lakers chances of winning the Cana dian senior lacrosse champion ship appear anything but en couraging today, but coacl Bobby Allan still feels his club can go all the way.

Denis Mcnkc had a two-run shot for Houston. The victory wiped out the last chance for any team to catch the Reds, who'havc been runa- way leaders in the West Divi- sion all season. Orioles Clinch Second Crown Football Opener Tonight Catholic Central Cougars set out in defence their South- ern Alberta High School Foot- ball League title tonight and the first stepping stone will be the Lethbridge Collegiate Rams. A strong rivalry between the two schools has developed over the years and it is expected to continue tonight at Henderson Park at eight o'clock. The Rams, of Jim Whitelaw, have only lost the league cham- pionship twice in more than a decade and both times it was the Cougars who took it away. Rams are smarting from a 26-0 pasting handed them at the hands of the Grads while Dean Dahl's Cougars have yet to see action. Meanwhile, the Western Eight League, expanded to 10 teams this year, has five games scheduled. Cardston St. Mary's travels to Raymond, Coaldaie .is at Milk River to tangle with the Ridge Riders, Vulcan meets Cardston in Cardston, Nanton is at home to Picture Butte and Claresholm is a guest in High River. All western Eight games get under way at two o'clock. then took one quick sip of cham- pagne to accommodate a pho- tographer before switching to more pedestrian brew. 'I'd rather drink said the six-foot-five southpaw, pass- ing the champagne bottle. "I've been drinking beer all year long." In other American League games, Minnesota Twins moved closer to the West Division title with a 4-3 victory over Califor- nia Angels and Milwaukee Brewers moped Kansas City Royals 4-3 in 13 innings. YANKS ARE OUT The Orioles were riding a bus from Baltimore to Washington when Tom Satriano's run-scor- ing single in the 10th inning at New York broke -a 3-3 deadlock and mathematically eliminated the second-place Yankees. "Next year, we're going to try and win it said Frank Robinson, recalling that Baltimore also had clinched the division title in 19G9 without tak- ing the field. Then the Senators, who had postponed the inevitable Wednesday night with a 2-0 vic- tory over Baltimore, repeated1 the shutout count behind Dick Bosnian's five-hitter. But Earl Weaver's defending American League kings shrugged off the run famine and quenched their thirst in a post-game party more lively than the 1969 affair. "The first half of tire season is proclaimed Coach1 Billy Hunter. "The next half starts in October." McDowell, whose previous victory high was 18 last season, checked the Tigers on seven hits and struck out nine, boost- ing his major league lead to 293 strikeouts. Rookie Roy Foster knocked in three Cleveland runs with a single and his 22nd homer.
