Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - April 5, 1973, Lethbridge, Alberta 12 THE LETHBRIDGE HERALD Thursday, April 5, 1973 Says so in B.C.

Not interested, don't have time Augusta's Harlem apathetic AUGUSTA. Ga. (AP) The Masters sends an electric im- pulse throughout the world of golf, but hardly creates a flut- ter a few blocks Au- gusta's Harlem. "Ain't got much interest in said Samuel Holloman, 81, barely looking up from the patchwork quilt he was sewing on the front porch of his dilapi- dated shack. "Don't have time." added Robert Willie, 67. who said the closest he ever got a to a golfer was in the lobby of a hotel where he once worked. The black community of this Georgia town of refuses :o get involved in the con- xoversy over whether a black .should tea up a ball in perhaps best-organized and most re- nowned of all tournaments. Sitting on their rickety por- :hes and lounging on the street ;orners of the predominantly alack north end of town, they cck tired and disinterested. Most of them know golf's great and near-great are gath- ering at the Augusta National rourse a couple of miles away :or today's first round of play, but few" of them care. Ask them what they think of Clifford Roberts, the man the Masters and you nor- mally get a blank stare. "Mr. Who? No. sir. don't know him." Even the name of Lee Elder, a black golfer, fails to strike a chord. Those who lave read or heard of the charges of Masters dis- crimination generally decline to comment. But one woman, standing on a street corner with an arm full of groceries, said: "Let him qualify, like every- body else. He don't want some- thing for nothing. We don't want something ibr nothing." Augusta found itself the centre of political attention a couple of weeks ago when IB congressmen led by Herman Badillo of New York, urged Roberts to lower his restrictions and admit Elder, one of the leading black pros on the tour. Roberts declined, saying it would be "discrimination in re- verse" if he changed the rules to accommodate one black man. The Masters, say the blacks in near-unison, is a "white folks' show." They want no part of it. Minor hockey The Falcons scored five goals in the second period and cruised to a 5-1 win over the Tigers. Greg McKean, Kevin Hamil- ton, Terry Hamilton, Scott Hamilton and Jim Riedlubulher scored for the Falcons while David Woodcock tallied for the Tigers.

Mr. Wirtz was asked by Crown prosecutor Ray Paris if hfi is the largest single share- holder in Medicor and he re- plied, "I don't know for sure." The Black Hawks president then confirmed he holds shares in Medicor and that this represents about 30 per cent of the Medicor stock. The jury had been told earlier that Scallen holds only 10 per cent of the Medicor stock. Mr. Wirtz said he represents the Black Hawks on the NHL board of governors. His father, Walter, is chairman of the board of the Chicago hockey club. NO PLACE TO PLAY His testimony followed that of league President Clarence Campbell, who told the jury that Vancouver failed to get a franchise in its first attempt in 1966 because there was no place for the team to play and no evi- dence of financial capability. Mr. Campbell said no appli- cation was made by Vancouver in the next league expansion. Scallen entered the picture and arrangements with him were made. At the end of Ms evidence, Mr. Campbell was asked by Mr. Paris: "Is it true you are con- cerned about the public image of the "I always have been, not only n o replied the league president. In earlier evidence, Scallen testified that several key mem- bers of the board of governors indicated they could be called on for help when Medicor was awarded the Vancouver fran- chise. He said he felt he had the al- ternatives of going to members of the NHL board of governors or to the Wirtz family if he j needed help in repaying the million loan to Medicor from the Walter Haller Co. in cago. Earlier in the trial, the jury was told the loan was due Dec. 16, 1970, about a week after the closing of an underwriting in Northwest Sports which had raised more than million. Scallen said he decided a few days after the Northwest Sports underwriting was ctosed to transter the proceeds first to a Medicor subsidiary in San Francisco and then to Chicago to pay off the Heller loan. He said a memorandum from a Medicor employee to him in the summer of 1970 was "wrong when it said that Canadian funds were the only source of revenue which could repay the Heller loan. Scallen said the employee did not know that the American Na- tional Bank of St. Paul had in- dicated to him it would arrange further financing. Nor did the employee know, he said, of his friendship with the Wirtz family cr of the possibility of help from members of the NHL beard of governors, who were aware of financial re- Lyman Walters, vice-presi- dent of both Medicor and North- west Sports, was cleared earlier on the charge of publishing a false prospectus.
