Money talks
QUEBEC - Rejean Houle, a young forward who helped the
Montreal Canadiens win the National Hockey League's Stanley
Cup last season, signed a three-year contract yesterday with the
World Hockey Association.
Announcement that the 23-year-old right winger will play next
season in the WHA came one week after Nordiques General Man-
ager Jacques Plante was qu'oted as saying Quebec would not
pursue the Houle issue any farther. However, at a news confer-
ence called to announce the signing, Plante said what he had
actually said was that the Nordiques had made their final offer
to the Rouyn, Que., native.

riding Roy White's fifth-inning
grand slam to a 7-0 victory in
the second game of the twi-
night doubleheader.
The nightcap was halted by
rain with the Yankees at bat an
the sixth innin.

Wood, who faced only six bat-
ters in the first game, was
starting both ends of a double-
header for the first time this
year. However, on May 28 he
went five- innings in completing
a suspended game against Cleve-
land and then hurled a four-hit
shutout in the regular game.
Wood, who had beaten the
Yankees eight straight times, all
complete games, struck out lead-
off man Horace Clarke in the
first inning of the opener, but
Ed Herrmann's passed ball al-
lowed him to reach first. After
Clarke stole second and Matty
Alou walked, White delivered a
two-ron double.
Bobby Murcer added en RBI
sinvie, Thormen Munson dou-
bled and Grain Nettles' two-run
single chased Wood. Eddie Fisher
gave un a single to Feline Alou
and a two-rin doable to Celerino
Sanchez before getting the first
ont. Matty Alot drove in the.
find ron of the Y nknes' bigest
inning of the baseball season
with a single.
Woof], 18-14, retired the Yankees
in order over the first three in-
ninfs of the nightcap before a
pair of errors led to two un-
earned runs.
The Yanks lr'ird the basks

first two innings by To!n Itr-

fire-hit pitching of John Co'rtis
in leading the Boston Red Sax
to a 5-0 victory over the Minne-
sota Twins last night.
Harper's home run off Bert
Blyleven, 12-9, was his eighth of
the season and give the Red Sox
a s-e lead in the first inning.
Fisk's 18th of the season hit the
light standard in left field one
inning later.

WILBUR WOOD HAD the honor of pitching both ends of last night's Bronx twinbill. Unfortunately, the White Sox ace had no idea his
opposition would take the form of a gang of woodpeckers in pinstripes. One of New York's leading peckers, Thurman Munson, tallies
one of the Yanks' dozen runs in the opener en route to a 12-2 laugher. Woeful Wilbur couldn't retire anybody, but did whiff Horace
Clarke who reached on a passed ball.

scored each time on singles by Garry Maddox,
helping Juan Marichal and the San Francisco
Giants to a 5-4 victory over the Chicago Cubs yes-
Bonds opened the game with a double, trigger-
ing a three-run first inning that saw Maddox and
Gary Matthews both drive in runs and another
score on an error.
Bonds doubled with one out in the fifth and again
scored on a single by Maddox off Cub starter Rick
Reuschel, 10-7.

in which Chicago scored one run, held the Cubs
scoreless until Billy Williams hit a two-run homer,
his 12th of the baseball season, in the eighth inn-
The victory was Marichal's eighth in 13 deci-
sions this year and the 235th of his major league

than Bob Gibson of the St. Louis Cardinals. The
triumph also boosted his lifetime record against
the Cubs to 23-8.

Hank: 700-1
ATLANTA - Willie Montanez' two-run pop fly
single highlighted a three-run second inning as the
Philadelphia Phillies trimmed the Atlanta Braves
6-4 despite Hank Aaron's 699th lifetime home run.
Aaron's 26th homer of the baseball season was
a three-run blast into the left field seats off Wayne
Twitchell in the seventh inning.
TWITCHELL, 8-3, was working on a one-hit
shutout until Marty Perez and Darrell Evans sin-
gled with one ouf in the seventh before Aaron un-
loaded on the first pitch with the blowthat left him
only 15 homers away from Babe Ruth's record 714.
One out later, Dave Johnson belted his 22nd
homer, cutting the lead-to 5-4 and chasing Twit-
