Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - September 29, 1971, Lethbridge, Alberta WedneiLfny, September 29 ,1971 THE LErHBRIDGE HEIiAlD t7i not in good mood Giants move a notch closer to divisional title By THE ASSOCIATED PRESS One year alter Chris Speier was bora, Maury Wills was playing his first season of pro- fessional baseball.. Tuesday night the two short- Ihe 21-year-old rookie with San Francisco Giants and the 30-ycar-oM Wills of Los Angeles Ihe key hits for their teams as the National League's sizzling West Division race continued to boil. Speier wacked a three run homer, leading San Francisco to a 7-1 victory over San Diego Padres, keeping the Giants one game ahead of the Dodgers with two games remaining. Wills cracked a run scoring single, breaking a tie in the eighth inning and giving the Dodgers a 2-1 triumph over ANDY CAPP M ABSOLUTES WHACKEO, KID-I THINK I'UGET MESELF STRAIGHT OW ABOUT MY NIG-HT KISS, Houston Astros. The Dodgers were locked in a 1-1 struggle with Houston and had been held to two hits by Don Wilson when Wills came to bat in the eighth inning with Bobby Valentine on second after drawing a one-out walk and being sacrificed by pitcher Bill Singer. Wills then singled sharply off the glove of shortstop Roger Melzger. The ball rolled behind Metzger anil into short centre field as Valentine raced home with the decisive run. The Dodgers' other run came on Duke Sims' homer leading off the sixth inning. It was his third homer in the last three games and his fourth homer in the last four games he has started. It also made him the first baseninner against Wilson, who had retired the first 15 Dodger baiters. Wilson, Hi-10, and Singer, 10- 17, both finished with three-hit- lers in the rapidly-played game which lasted only one hour and 37 minutes.

(AP) The general manager of Califor- nia Angels says an arbitration board ruling that the club must pay the salary of suspended out- fielder Alex Johnson is "com- pletely without justification." Johnson himself says, "I don't consider it a victory at all." The Angels suspended John- son without pay June 26 for "not showing the proper mental attitude" and fined him for misconduct.

On Sunday, in game two nt Baltimore, Oakland manager Dick Williams figures to go with 21-gamc winner Jim Hunter. Games three, four and five are scheduled for Oakland on Oct. 5, 0 and 7, following a day for travel. Chuck Dobson, a 15- game winner, probably will be the Oakland starter in game three. This is Oakland's first title since the club moved west from Kansas City in 1968. And it is the Athletics first year under Williams, who piloted Boston lo .he American League champi- onship in 1967. OUSTED LAST YEAR Pittsburgh, National.

The Pirates, however, will open the playoffs on the road, fames one and two are sched- uled Saturday and Sunday in the city of the West Division winner, After a day off for travel, the series moves to Pittsburgh for games three, 'our and five on Oct. 5, 6 and 7. With two games remaining in he wild West race, the Giants ead the Dodgers by one game. Olympics will pay for themselves Drapeau confident it won't cost The arbitration board's mlin given Tuesday in New Yor says that Johnson's behavin was caused by emotional dis turbance and ordered hi' plated on the disabled list, witt full pay, like players suiferin from physical injuries. It or dercd the American Leagij club to pay Johnson the salar due him. but it uphet the disciplinary fines. The deci sion is binding. General manager Dick Walsl called the ruling inconsisten and asked: If Johnson was no responsible for his action whj allow the fines to stand? If he was, why not uphold the supen sion? PROBABLY WILL PLAY Johnson, reached Tuesday al his home in Detroit, said he h confident he resume his baseball career but "probably not, more than likely California. Marvin Miller, executive director of Ihe Major League Baseball Players Association, and a member of the arbitration panel, said the finding is his' toric. "It means that a man who is emotionally disturbed is just as ill as one who has sustained an injury or has an ailment." Johnson, 28, has been with Philadelphia, St Louis, Cincin- nati and California in his seven years in the majors, and was American League batting cham- pion last year. DeGroot nets three goals Iinmanuel Christian captured !heir first Lelhbridge Junior High School Soccer League vic- :ory trouncing Hamilton 4-1 Tuesday night. Theo DeGroot led the win- ners with a three goal perform- ance while Ed Veldman chip- led in with one. Dwayne Larson averted a shutout for Braves Hanked Cincinnati Reds 4-0, Montreal Expos edged Chi- cago Cubs 5-4 and St. Louis Car- dinals downed New York Mels 5-2 in other National League games. Singer, who has been ham- pered by arm injuries through most of the season, called his performance against the Astros one of the best games he has ever pitched. The only run Houston man- aged off the Dodgers' right-han- der came in the fourth inning when Joe Morgan walked, took third on Cesar Cedeno's single and scored on Bob Watson's hit Cedeno, who had taken second on a passed ball by Sims, also tried lo score on the play but was thrown out by centre fielder Willie Davis. Speier's homer, his eighth of the season, capped a four-run San Francisco uprising in the sixth inning and eased Gaylord Perry's 16th victory. Speier said he tried lo call time just before Padres' rookie Ed Acosta threw the pitch which he smashed over the left field wall, but tho plate umpire apparently didn't hear him. The Washington fans in the Robert P. Kennedy Stadium Tuesday were not in a friendly mood, despite Ihe Senators' 4-2 victory over New York Yankees in the start of the Senators' final home stand of the season. The fans' biggest cheers of the night didn't go to Dick Bill- ings and Jeff Borroughs, whose run-scoring hils in the seventh inning gave Washington its mar- gin of Nor were they reserved for Joe Grzenda, who pitched three innings of one-hit relief for the victory. They didn't even go to New York's Roy White, who set an American League record with his 17th sacrifice fly of the sea- ion.

The mayor said Monday night his latest estimate came after a persona] visit to the site of the 1972 Summer Games at Munich, West Germany, where over-all costs have climbed well above original estimates. During bis European visit Drapeau reported on the organi zational progress Monti-cat has made t o iv n r ri s staging the Games, but made no mention of any financial undertakings in his submission lo the Interna- tional Olympic Committee at Luxembourg. Drapeau reported that in Mu- nich, expenditures have sky- rocketed because that city lacks n stibiv.'iy system, highway net- work, adequate transportation and housing facilities. "The costs there have gone up because they (municipal offi- cials) have laken advantage of Ihe Olympics to get much- needed services which they needed without the Games any "But in Montreal, we have all Metro (subway) the highways, the transporta tion, it is all here." MAJOR SELLING POINT The no-cost theme has been one ot Drapcau's major selling points since Montreal was awarded the Games ahead of Moscow at the A m s t e r d am meeting of the IOC in May, 1970. The mayor contends that major highway construction in and around (lie city would have been undertaken with or without the Games and that he city's recreation department has a schedule which calls for the construction o f Olymnic-sizc swimming pools and other Olvmpic-slyle sports facilities. He noted that the University of Montreal was expanding its sports facilities and equipment while tho University of Quebec campiu here was in need of rec- reational facilities. "All of this is beuig built for he citizens, but it will not cost anything (o use these facilities for the he we have to do is make those facili- ties available to the Games at least six weeks before their opening. The Games last two weeks but the facilities will be needed for practice.' HOUSING IN PLAN The city plans lo use a low cost housing development in it; over-all urban renewal plan a; an Olympic village, wilh the housing project being turned over lo Montrcalers after the Games. "Don't forget [hat the federa. and provincial governments have been spending millions of dollars in recent years on sports and recreation equipment nnd that they will also contribute to our Olympic Drapeau said. He said Ihe Olympic under- aking was not the same as that fcr Expo 67 when many services such as highway extensions had o be built then, thus boosting llic expenditures of Hie fair. "Today, everything is either built or is being built for our own everyday he said. "That is why I say it will not cost tax payers more money In hold the Olympics here."
