Four clubs will hit the turf for conference games Friday night while two others will dress for an interlocking tilt Saturday night. In western conference ac- tion Friday night, the Winston Churchill Bulldogs will host the defending champion Lethbridge Collegiate In- stitute Rams at Henderson Stadium. Both clubs earned easy vic- tories in their season opener last weekend and the eight o'clock encounter could break the first place dead-lock.

Saturday, Okotoks entertain Vulcan in the only league game on tap. Opening dates fixed It9s hardly a tennis match Title should read 'money' New York Times Service HOUSTON Some call it the tennis battle of the sexes, the hustle, the Woodstock of the Bobby Riggs generation. But one thing is certain: when Billie Jean King and Bobby Riggs step out onto an improvised court in the infield of the Astrodome this evening, the game they play will have more in com- mon with a Ringling Brothers circus or a Cecil B. DeMille spectacle than with Wimbledon or Forest Hills. The stars are a 29-year-old feminist who has been gobbl- ing Three Musketters candy bars and vitamin E and a 55- year-old chauvinist whose hotel refrigerator is overflow- ing with avocodos. The supporting cast includes Salvator Dali, the painter. Dr. Denton Cooley, the heart surgeon, and George Foreman, the heavyweight champion, and an array of commercial sponsors with more than million invested in the event. Waiting in the wings are an estimated 13 million television viewers in the United States and countless others in 40 countries to whom the match will be played by satellite. Meanwhile, on the sidelines, are the people of Houston, who. annoyed to some extent that the match is blacked out here, have so far bought only half the stadium's 40.000 available seats. If this were a Broadway show, the title would be The winner, of course, will collect the prize, while both players stand to make each in an- cillary rights. Jerry Perenchio, the promoter, has already collected from the American Broad- casting Company and Irom the Astrodome. A.B C is collecting million from nine sponsors for 15 minutes of commercials during the two-hour telecast. The Astrodome has collected worth of ads for the souvenir program. from Oshman's, a local sporting goods store that is the official sponsor, an ex- pected in live gate receipts, and a head from fans who have paid to see Riggs and King practice night- ly in a temporary tennis "bubble" erected in the Astrodome parking lot. Mrs. King and her manager- husband, Larry, are collecting from Sunbeam, for whom she did a hair-roller commercial to be broadcast during the match, plus an un- disclosed amount from sales of Billie Jean T-shirts manufactured for the oc- casion. And Riggs? Well, there's the from Hai Karate. Toiletries Company whose products are as prominently displayed in his hotel suite as are his avacodos and vitamin pills, from Nabisco, who had tabbed him the No. 1 "Sugar and from, among others, Cooiey, with whom he played a small- stakes exhibition set over the weekend. Celebrities will be out in force for the match. First of all. there's a sheik who is reportedly flying his harpm in on a Boeing 707. Then there are Andy Williams, Glen Campbell. Rod Steiger. Janet Leigh and a planeload of other Hollywood figures who will play a celebrity tournament in the' stadium Thursday after- noon with the final scheduled at the preliminary to the King- Riggs match. Perenchio said Tuesday that the show will also feature the 170-piece t'niversity of Houston band, which will kick things off with theme songs for the two players For Riggs, it's "Con- a theme song from an old Tyrone Power movie. For Mrs' King, it's "I Am to be sung by Helen Reddy. with Henry Mancim conducting. Foreman will present the check to the winner. Dali, ac- cording to present plans, will merely be a spectator. In the broadcasting booth Howard Cosell is set to do the play by play. But plans for commentary by Rosemary Casals. Mrs. King's doubles partner, and Jack Kramer, the tennis promoter and tormer champion, are now up in the air as the result of a protest from Mrs. King, who has been embroiled in tennis political disputes recently with Kramer.

Toronto Argonauts did Wednesday night. Quarterback Joe Theismann and Eric Allen combined on a pass-and-run play that covered 100 yards before Saskatchewan's Lewis Cook was able to haul the Argo flanker down five yards short of the Roughrider goalline. On the next play, Theis- mann's pass to Mike Eben in the Saskatchewan end zone was intercepted by Jim Elder, a play that "turned the game" in the 'Riders' favor, says Ron Lancaster. "That turned the game." the Saskatchewan quarter- back was saying after the Roughriders rebounded for two fourth-quarter touchdowns en route to a 21-15 victory over the Argos. "Had they scored then we'd have been i4 points down and it would have been tough to come from that far behind. As it was, it left us in good shape for the win." REED SCORES Lancaster and fullback George Reed ran for one-yard touchdowns and the Roughrider field general, who holds most of the Canadian Football League passing marks, hit halfback Bobby Thompson with a nineyard scoring pass for the other Saskatchewan major score. Jack Abendschan converted all three. Bill Symons, on a one-yard run, and a Theismann-to-Pete Muller pass accounted for the Toronto touchdowns. Zenon Andrusyshyn kicked both converts and added a 37-yard single on a wide field goal attempt that provided the Argos with a 15-7 margin at three quarters. Both teams relied on a 15- mile-an-hour wind at their backs to score, the Argos opting for the breeze in the first and third quarters.

The Lethbridge Longhorns of the Alberta Junior Hockey League held an informal meeting Wednesday night to iron out a few issues in preparation for the 1973-74 season. The Longhorns, who ac- quired a franchise in the AJHL this year, will replace the Lethbridge Sugar Kings who were suspended after be- ing found guilty of breaking a rule in the league's con- stitution. The AJHL will once again be a six-team league including the Pass Red Devils. Calgary Canucks, Drumheller Falcons. Red Deer Rustlers, Edmonton and Lethbridge. Each club will play a 60- game schedule divided equal- ly into 30 home games and 30 road games. The Longhorns will open their 1973-74 schedule in the Crowsnest against the Pass Red Devils September 30 and will have a return match at Henderson Lake Ice Centre October 2. Meanwhile it was announc- ed last night that season ticket sales will continue at the College Mall where a Longhorns' sales booth has been erected.

Open til 9 p.m. It is no joke. There are 3 teams of people at Tradition's distillery and they have almost legendary power. The power of taste. With it they can stop cases of whisky from ever reaching you You see, we have spent a lot of time and money getting Tradition to taste the way it does Smooth, mellow As we say. "so Canadian you can taste it But making a great whisky once, is no great feat. Most Canadian distilleries make very good whisky. The problem is making great whisky, day after day. Bottle after bottle. Sip after sip. Pity the sinqle blender. M scuemey we it s inhuman to give one man the responsibility of deciding on the maintenance of whisky, day after day. The food he eats, his personality, his habits all contnoute m some ways to his perception of taste. And a certain taste is not something you can tap with a hammer. You can't see taste. VQU can t feel taste. You can only taste taste. And this is why Schenley has developed the 3-team method of whisky tasting. The First Second Team and the TraininU Team. Not one drop of Schenley Tradition can reach you until it has passed the critical palates of our taste teams. Not a drop. It does not matter if a production man howls about schedules. It does not matter if an execu- tive says through clenched teeth, "it's close enough if it isn't passed, it isn't Tradition. Pictured here are some of our First Team members as of March 15th, 1973. tacn member has earned his position by recording consis- tently high averages in taste tests. But none is secure. In the wings members of the Second Team wait. And be- hind them a team of rookies practice. TheTraming Team All of this effort, is based on the fact that we believe Tradition is a great-tasting whisky. And we d like to keep it that way.
