It wai St. Patrick's Day, March 17, 1961 and suddenly, the whole world was aware of Lethbridge. In Paris, France the Lethbridge Maple Leafs defeated Sweden 5-1 before people to become champions of amateur hockey, world champions. Saturday evening in Edmonton the Maple Leafs, in a ceremony long overdo, were inducted into the Alberta Hall of Fame by a group known as Sports Alberta. The submission of the Maple Leafs' name was made by Don Pilling of Lethbridge. Pilling, in his position of sports editor of the Herald, when the Leafs were in their heyday, felt it was time more than just local recognition was brought upon the Leafs The Leafs, it can truly be said, brought great honor and prestige not only to Lethbridgevand Alberta but to all of Canada Formed in the fall of 1949 by a group of former Lethbridge senior and junior hockey players who were interested in making their home in Lethbridge, working in the community but continuing their love of hockey by playing a series of games throughout the season on a strictly amateur basis. Later in the same season, the winter and spring of 1949- 50, the team entered the Western Canada intermediate playoffs and won the title over Melville Millionaires in a hard-fought series. Application was then made for the Leafs to represent Canada in the world championships. From the Alberta Amateur Hockey Association the Leafs' application went to the Canadian Amateur Hockey Association and it was decided that the locals would carry Canada's colors in Europe. A mixture of seasoned veterans and, at that time, recent graduates from junior ranks, and it proved to be a winning combination. Headed by playing coach Dick Gray, a veteran performer who served his country in the Second World War as a member of the Royal Canadian Air Force, the Leafs were a determined, dedicated group of patriotic Canadians who made great sacrifices, such as being away from their families and loved ones for over five months. Members of the world champion Maple Leafs were Gray, Mallie Hughes, Carl Sorokoski, Don Vogan, Jim (Shorty) Malacko, Whitey Rimstad, Robert McGregor, Bill Gibson, Hector Negrello, Don McLean, Tom Wood, Bill Chandler, Stan Obodiac, Lou Siray, Nap Milroy, Bert Knibbs, Jack Sumner and Ken Branch. Three players from Stratford, Ont. Bill Flick, Mickey Roth and Denny Flanagan, joined the team for the world tournament in Paris and the Churchill Cup series ir England, which the Leafs also won. Addie Donaldson was the team manager but was unable to accompany the team due to business commitments. Saturday night Negrello, Gray and Milroy along with their wives, were in Edmonton for the indiction. Negrello was impressed with proceedings. It was like old home week. Besides seeing old teammates former Lethbridgeites were front and centre when the honors were being passed out. Barbara Home received an award through her efforts in golf, Stan Siwik for swimming, Henry Viney was awarded the Bell trophy and Ernie Afaganis was the featured speaker. The Leafs received a plaque Saturday, however, Negrello is hopeful that each team member will get an individual one in the future. The great Edmonton Grads were also honored Saturday. The basketball team, a women's team, played their last game in 1940. Things will be back to normal for the Maple Leafs again today. They spent the weekend thinking about five months in Europe in which they won 51, lost only seven and tied four They won all six tournament games scoring 62 times and allowing just six. Many of the team members still make their home in Lethbridge and have, over the years, been involved in a great deal of community work as enthusiastic, conscientious citizens and have been highly- successful in chosen fields. They have contributed their share to the city of Lethbridge as hockey players, businessmen, salesmen, members of the work focce, members of various community minded organizations and as husbands and fathers St. Patrick's Day will always mean a great deal to the Lethbndgp Maole Leafs, CHARLES SMALLFACE Gardston fighter makes the grade Charles Smallface, pound for pound, was one of Alberta's finest boxers. The Cardston native dominated his weight divisions in the 1950's. Saturday evening Smallface became a member of the Alberta Hall of Fame. Reading his record beginning in 1950 and ending in 1959 it shows 50 fights, 49 victories. He lost in the Golden Gloves in 1959. But before that, ring triumphs and many of them. In 1950 he won the Alberta 70-pound junior class title, he won the 80-pound title the next year and then made it three for three with the 90-pound crown in 1952. His first win came in Calgary, then Cardston and finally Barrhead In the next two years Smallface continued to lead the way in his junior class winning the 100-pound title in Cardston and the 110-pound in Edmonton. He stepped into the ring in the 119-pound division in 1955 in Cardston and won The following year he weighed 132 pounds but was still the best, winning in Cardston. His victory string snapped in 1959 but not before he won his 139-pound open class title. He won the Golden Gloves four times between 1954 and 1958 Smallface was runner-up in the Canadian finals in the 132-pound open class in Montreal in 1956.
