Winnipeg Free Press (Newspaper) - December 19, 1962, Winnipeg, Manitoba 48 WINNIPEG FREE PRESS, WEDNESDAY, DECEMBER 19, 1962 Sonny Solves Mixup TORONTO CP World heavyweight champion' Sony Liston proposed Tuesday a three-bout series involving him- self, former champion Floyd Patterson, Sweden's Ingemar Johansson and fourth ranked Cassius Clay as a solution to ..the controversy surrounding his next fight. In a CBC television appear- ance, Liston suggested the best program for promoters would be to match h i m against Johansson and Patterson against Clay and the winners of these two bouts against each other. He said he has no doubt of the legitimacy of a offer by Johansson's adviser Edvin Aldqvist to meet Johans- son in Stockholm. "I don't doubt Aldqvist has that kind of money and even if he doesn't, Johansson could 'put it up Liston said. "He was rich when he came over here and got rich again." Liston doubted the public could be'sold on a rematch with Patterson following his one- round victory over the former champion. Another big obstacle to the rematch is Listen's haggle with the promoters over money still owed him from the Patterson fight. Liston has said he considers the contract for a rematch was voided when the promoters failed to pay him half his purse 48 hours of the fight. He got but S85.000 is still owing. The other half was to be held in escrow guaranteeing the return bout. The U.S. government seized all receipts of the fight because of tax problems with the pro moters. 500 GAMES MONTREAL (CP) Danny Gallivan, broadcaster from Syd- ney, N.S., will be announcing his 500th consecutive Montreal Canadiens National Hockey League game Jan. 5.

AFL ALL-STARS Dallas, Houston Dominate Team By JACK HAND NEW YORK (AP) Dallas Texans and Houston Oilers, who clash Sunday for the Amer- ican Football League crown, placed a total of 11 men on the first offensive and defensive units of the 1962 All-AFL team. Cookie Gilehrist, the crashing fullback from Buffalo Bills who once performanced for Saskat- chewan Roughriders, Hamilton Tiger-Cats and Toronto Argo- nauts in the Canadian Football, League, was named to the of- fensive backfield.

The branch co-operated with the Manitoba Secondary Schools Athletic Association in presenting this initial project. seven persons from different municipalities the team, set a league record of yards rushing during the regular 14-game season. The team, announced today, was selected for The Associated Press by a committee of sports writers and sportscasters in the eight league cities. The Texans, the Western Di- vision champs, but quarterback Len Dawson, halfback Abner Haynes and end Chris Burford of the offensive team and line- backers Sherrill Headrick and Brian Lunney Gets Green Light; Rejoins Floundering Monarchs By FRED COLLINS Brian Lunney tonight will burn his hockey obituary notices! Lunney, 'buried' by many fol- lowing an eye injury Nov. 2 which temporarily blurred his vision and threatened to inter- rupt a budding hockey career, will be between the pipes tonight when Winnipeg Monarchs meet Winnipeg Braves in Manitoba Junior Hockey League action at the Arena. Game time Is 8 o'clock. He will wear a mask. Be- sides serving as a psycholog- ical aid, it will cover a scar, the only visible remembrance fo that fatal Friday evening of Nov. 2. That night Lunney was vir- tually a one-man show as Regals and Brandon Wheat Kings, locked in a first-place tie with the idle Braves Bill finished regulation time in a 3-3 deadlock. He was just as hot in the over- time period. His acts of down- right larceny continued until, with less than 30 seconds re- maining in the bargain session, the league's top line at the time Dennis Hextall, Dave Jana- way, and John Vopni broke over the Winnipeg blueline. Vopni, the right winger, whirled around the defence and fired a fast-rising shot at Lnnney. The puck caught the Winnipeg goalie under the eye. As Lunney lay helpless on the ice, Janaway, an opportunist, lifted the puck into the open cage. The goal put Wheaties in first place, a spot from which they have yet to be removed. Since then, according to the boyish Lunney, he has been "selling soft drinks, doing a little Christmas shopping, and walk- ing around the house like a caged tiger." You have to know Lunney to appreciate the last re- mark. Ever since those days around the Riverview Com- munity Club when the bug first got into his system, Brian has lived, eaten, and slept sport. la football, Brian was an all- star linebacker of the Dominion junior champion St. James Rods in 1961. He was also the club's punter and recognized as one of the best for his age in the country, averaging something like 45 yards per kick. In hockey, he IS the Winnipeg Monarchs, something manager Hoss Nicolson is quick to pass along. "This (his return) is some- thing that will give our club a tremendous lift. This club is built around Brian. This isn't a knock at either of the three goalies we've used since Lunney was injured. Under the circum- stances, all were competent." Last season Brian, obtained in a trade with St. Boniface Cana- diens, joined Regals Dec. 31, the trade deadline. At the time the' club was dead last. No one I will deny that Lunney carrie the floundering Monarchs to the league final three months later. It's interesting to note that a near-similar situation exists this season. Monarchs are in third place, but going nowhere except down. Because of games-in-hand, Braves Regals long. Can Lunney again lift Regals by the boot-straps? The question was put to Brian, the 19-year-old who earned the job as Johnny Bower's stand-by on Toronto Maple Leafs' western Canadian tour. "I can't he an- swered modestly, "but just hope. Offhand I'd guess we need more organization on the ice. The club's often too spotty." Regals last year about this time. If Lunney felt they were let- ting him down, he'd whack them across the seat of their pants with his stick. If they backed in fact could lower into fourth before too It was a public warning to the rest of the Monarchs. Two members of this year's blueline corps, Brian Weston and Gerry Wakshmski, well remem- ber the Lunney who joined the IT LOOKS LIKE RADIOMAN Cliff Gardner and his family certainly won't go hungry this Christmas thanks to the trusty bowling arms of Cliff and his wife June.

Don Blanchard of this paper also won a turkey, but only because Marc Turoldo on the same team, who actually beat him, disqualified himself as a "house man."

After a few whacks here and there, the Regal blueline was moulded into a solid unit. There's still a story they teE around the Monarchs' dressing room. Despite (heir winning ways, the Monarchs machine show- ed signs of rust just'before the end of the regular sea- son. Lunney was making more stops than he thought he should. After coach Gord Simpson had completed his pre-game pep-talk, Lunney took over. He sat slouch- ing in his corner locker, firing the puck into his catching hand glove. He repeated this several times, the puck flying into the glove with increased viciousness. "You guys let me down, and there'll be trouble. If any one goofs off, he'll have to answer to Brian barked. The story had a happy ending for Monarchs, a club which hasn't had cause for much re- joicing in the modern era. They played their finest game of the season that night. BRIAN LUNNEY WH 2-7555 HARRIET STREET Best Deal At Denver VANCOUVER (CP) British Columbia Lions of the Western Football Conference Tuesday lost the No. 2 man in their 1963 re- cruiting plans. Club officials said halfback Charles Mitchell of the Univer- sity of Washington, who went to Denver Broncos of the American League, ranked immediately be- hind Minnesota halfback Bill Munsey in B.C. plans. Munsey was signed by Lions Dec. 12. Chicago Bears of the National League had drafted Mitchell as their fourth choice, and Broncos had him 18th on their list, be- cause they thought he was cer- tain to sign with Liens. B.C. general manager Herb Capozzi was reported ready to leave for the United States to sign Mitchell when the announce- ment came from Denver. It is believed the Washington star got a better contract from Broncs. He was wined and dined by Lions here last week and told reporters: "I'll play where I can get the best financial deal."
