Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - April 3, 1973, Lethbridge, Alberta THI IETHBRIDGI HERAID Tuesday, April S, W3 GPfiING- and fall closing of parts of the upper Oldman Biver system, and a reduc- tion In the mountain white- fish limits below the St. Mary and 'Waterton dams, are the two main changes in ttie 1973 sport fishing reg- ulations applicable to this area. The following statement on the subject was issued by Duanc S. Radford, regional fishery biologist: "Anglers should be pleased with the new style of. the 1973 Guide to Sport Fishing regu- lations in Alberta. This synop- sis has been altered in many ways this year to simplify our sport fishing regulations and to eliminate some confus- ing sections present in form- er guides. "Alberta's angling regula- tions are based on watershed units contained within s i x major regions in the prov- ince: the specific regulations (such as closed waters) which apply to given waters in a particular region have been color coded in the guide to match each region and there- "The aforementioned sec- tion of the Oldman River has been brought under the same closure system as the Castle and Crowsnest Rivers to re- strict the harvest of rain- bow trout, Dolly Varden, and mountain whitefish during low spring flows when these fish are vulnerable to anglers. The harvest of such species will now be delayed to the summer months when the angling is more difficult and recreational demands are greatest. "Protection of the sport fish (particularly Dolly Var- den and cutthroat trout) in several tributaries of the above section will also be af- forded. "The other important change m the 1973 regulations con- cerns a reduction in the daily and possession limit of moun- hy reduce misunderstandings. Most anglers should find the new regulations much less difficult to cope with than those of previous years. How- ever, anglers should remem- ber that these regulations are based on the fiscal (not calen- dar) year from April 1, 1973 to March 31, 1974. "There are only two major alterations in specific regula- tions which apply to waters in Region 1 (Lethbridge Re- gion) this year. The Oldman River and all its tributaries upstream from the Secondary Highway No. 922 between Lundbreck and Longview (not the Crowsnest Forest Re- serve boundary as in previous years) will be closed to ang- ling from April 1. 1973 to May 31, 1973, both dates in- clusive, and from November 1, 1973 to March 31, 1974, both dates inclusive. These closure periods also apply to the Crowsnest River upstream from Lundbreck F a 1 Is to Crowsnesl Lake, and the Castle River and its tribu- taries upstream from High- way No. 3. tain whitefish in the St. Mary River, downstream, from St. Mary Reservoir to the con- fluence with the Oldman River, and the Waterton River, downstream from the Waterton Reservoir to its con- fluence with the Belly River. These limits will be 10 and 20 mountain whitefish respec- tively this year, not 15 and 30 as in previous years for these waters. This should have the effect of redistributing the harvest of this species in these rivers_ during low dis- charge periods downstream of the reservoirs when fish are particularly vulnerable to angling. "Anglers are cautioned to be able to separate lake whitefish from mountain whitefish to stay within the limits of these fish on the St. Mary and Waterton Rivers." Minor hockey Taber won the Zone 5 Pee Wee "B" title Monday evening with a ccme-fronb-behind 5-5 deadlock with Lethbridge Voy- ageurs. Taber earned the title thanks to a decisive 8-2 victory in the first game of the two-game, to- tal-goal series. Voyageurs gave it all they bad early in Monday's game. Trailing by six goals in the se- ries the locals stormed into a lead at the end of the first period and scored first again in the second to close the gap to goal. Taber, however, tallied twice in the second and three times in the third to sink (he hopes of the Voyageurs. Fred Thompson and Dale KaminsM notched two goals each for the Voyageurs while Coutts added a single. Rudy Kliene fired home three goals for Taber. Kim Oseen and Dean Kress accounted for solo markers. Lethbridge Pee Wee Slar- lands took a pair of identical 6-4 verdicts from Fernie over the weekend. Saturday night Todd Takeya- su, John Fraser, Greg Loshney, Allan Gepneris, Neal Povey and Bob Odney scored for the Marlands. Sunday, Povey and Frank Eogler tallied twice each with singles going to Brent Montieth and Gepneris. The Eagles skated to a hard- fought iM) overtime victory over the Hornets in Bantam "B" playoff action Monday night. David Schellenberg scored the lone goal during the extra per- iod while Pat Kennan register- ed the shutout. Toronto netv home? HONDAS NEW DIRT BIKE CHAMPION!

Doug Michel, team president, confirmed this late Monday al- though he was not certain where the playoffs would be held or where the team would be for the 1973-74 season. The answers were expected to come from Buffalo, N.Y., and team owner Nick Trbovich to- day. At the end of a very confusing day for fans and others inter- ested, it appeared the team likely would settle in Toronto where the Maple Leaf Gardens and a group headed by John Bassett were compering for their favors. On the outside looking in was the Ottawa city council, which spent the night debating its le- gal position in the whole thing, even though the city has no con- tract or agreement with the club. At an impromptu news con- ference. Michel said he was al most certain the club would hold its playoffs in Maple Leaf Gardens, although those nego- tiations were not complete and there was no confirmation the team also would play there next year. ALL OR NOTHING In Toronto. Gardens spokes- man Bill Ballard was quoted as saying, "There's no way we want them for the playoffs with- out them playing here next sea- son." In the meantime John Bassett Jr., was in Buffalo trying to sell Trbovich the idea of moving the Nationals to the Canadian Na- tional Exhibition Coliseum, which Bassett and his father want to convert into a hockey arena to house the or some other ailing WHA fran- season. Although rumors had been rampant in the area for some time about just such a move, it came to a head Monday night with an announcement in city council by Mayor Pierre Benoit that the Nats were gone. The city and the team have been feuding for some time over a performance bond posted by the Nats with the Central Canada Exhibition Association, landlords of the 500-seat Civic Centre, home of the Nationals this season. Due for renewal March 15, the Nationals refused to post the bond since the city is not renewing the CCEA lease for the exhibition grounds and the CCEA would be unable to fulfil the terms of a three-year deal it had with the team. It was this dilemna that was being debated by city council Thursday when Mayor Benoit dropped his bomb. Later, after many hours of questioning. Michel confirmed that whatever else happened the team would not be here next year and would be holding its playoff games elsewhere. The move still needs league ratification. A league spokes- man Monday said he had not heard anything about such a move and, in fact, had con- firmed home playoff dates for Ottawa earlier in the day. Wherever their home games are, the Nationals go into the eastern division semi-finals against New England Whalers starting April 7 and 8 in Boston. The series then moves to Na- tionals' April 10 and 12 and then back to Boston April 14. Further games would be at the Nationals April 15 and at Boston April 19. For the Nationals it's the cul- mination of a frustrating sea- son. Even though they made the final playoff berth with a dra- matic late-season rush that in- cluded 12 wins in 13 outings and nine straight victories at home, they never caught on with the fans. In the first half of the season near or in the division cellar, the team was drawing an aver- age of 2.000 fans a game when it needed about just to break even. Even in the rush for a playoff berth when it was in a deadly struggle with Philadelphia Blaz- ers and Quebec Les Nordiques, the club could draw only about fans. Just once all year did it sell 6 when Winnipeg Jets and Bobby Hull filled the Civic Centre to overflowing. Chi Chi finishes in first GREENSBORO. N.C. (AP) Chi Chi Rodriguez has no illu- sions about extending his win- ning streak to two with a vic- tory in the famed Masters tour- nament this week. "Jack Nicklaus will be Chi Chi explained. "When Jack takes a week off (as he did in the Greater Greensboro it's any- body's tournament." Rodriguez said Monday after his one- stroke over Lou Gra- ham and Ken Still. "But Augusta National (the site of the Masters) was made for Jack Mcklaus and Jack Nicklaus -was made for Augusta National." The 37-year-old Rodriguez, down to a wiry 120 pounds be- cause of a diet he "hopes will help me live to be 140 years came from two strokes off the pace with a five-under-par 66 in the rain-delayed final round and picked up for his seventh tour triumph in 14 years on the pro tour. FINISHED 17 UNDER He had a 72-hole total of 267, 17 under par on the Sedgefield Country Club course. Graham, who had a final 69, was one stroke away for the third week in a row. He tied at 263 with Still, who bolted into contention with a last-round that included 11 one-putt greens. Rodriguez and the rest of the field that is eligible for the Masters were delayed one day in getting to Augusta, Ga.. where Nicklaus has been prac- tising for a week for the tourna- ment which starts Thursday. Saturday's round here was washed out by a 1.5-inch rain. A double round of 36 holes was scheduled for Sunday, but only half of it could be played and the final round was held over until Monday. George Knudson of Toronto fired a par 71 and picked up 937 for his 12th-place finish. He bad rounds of 68, 66, 69 and Monday's 71 for a 274 total.

LETHBRIDOE Phone 328-9271 CARGAR SPORT Valley wants Davis removed OAKLAND (AP) Wayne Valley, one of Oakland Raiders' owners, filed suit Monday ask- ing removal of Al Davis as managing partner of the Na- tional Football League team. The story was disclosed from Scottsdale, Ariz., where Valley, Davis and other NFL owners then- annual meeting Monday. Valley's suit filed in Alameda County Superior Court here seeks to nullify a new 20-year 'employment agreement" con- Tact for Davis signed by the third Raiders partner, Ed McGah. McGah and Valley were among the nine original owners of the team, born in 1960 as an American Football League fran- chise. Davis, a former Raiders' coach, has been a partner since 1966. Valley says in his suit that he wasn't aware of the new Davis contract, prepared last July, until Feb. 23. "McGah signed me to the contract and Wayne was fully aware of Davis said Mon- day. McGah said in a statement is- sued through the Raiders' of- :ice: "The litigation instituted by Wayne Valley is ill-founded and destructive. Mr. Valley has been aware of the contract :rom the time of its signing and inception, which was eight months ago- "Wayne should know he can- not run the Raiders. He has made a mess of it before. All his efforts will do is hurt and injure morale and damage the reputation of our team. "He ought to drop the thing." Davis, 43, receives a salary of a year under his current contract which expires in 1976. He owns slightly more than 10 per cent of the team's stock. Valley, in the suit, said the new contract would give Davis a salary and "almost absolute control over the Raid- ers." LMBA sponsor two teams The Lethbridge Minor Base- ball Association announced Monday that they are willing to sponsor up to two teams in the Bison League of the Alberta Baseball Association this sea- son. The league will consist of single teams from Medicine Hat, Taber and Brooks and possible two teams from Leth- bridge. Lethbridge entries will depend upon the interest shown during registrations. All players born in 1954 or later and their 19th birthday prior to Jan. 1, 1973 are elibi- ble. It is urged that all boys 16- 19 register if interested.
