Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - April 19, 1974, Lethbridge, Alberta 12 LETHBRIDGE HERALD Friday, April 19, 1974 We art I ATA for all Steamship Companies and Book through us now at no extra charge. ART WILLIAMS TRAVEL CENTRE VILLAGE MAU PHONt 331-3201 Where does this leave Mahoney? VANCOUVER (CP) The tangled front office affairs of Vancouver Canucks of the National Hockey League took another turn Wednesday when club president Coley Hall said the team is searching for "a real top general manager." That may come as a surprise to the team's current general manager, Phil Maloney, who also coached the club for the final three months of the season, leading the Canucks out of last place in the NHL's east division. Maloirey has been filling both roles since Hall fired Bill McCreary from the coaching position and put general manager Hal Laycoe on a leave of absence in January Maloney's contract expires June 1 and Hall says he "did a pretty good job." But Hall says he doesn't like to have one man doing both jobs, despite the success of other general manager coaches such as Emile Francis of New York Rangers. "In my opinion, Phil warrants a new contract as he said "But he doesn't really have any experience as manager If we can't find a real top manager though, I feel Phil deserves a shot at it." Maloney, in Montreal Wednesday, said he's "interested in being general manager coach of this club." He said he hasn't talked to Hall about the situation, but is scheduled to meet the club president soon. "How do you get experience unless you do the Maloney said Maloney said player negotiations have been going well, with only little used goalie Ed Dyck jumping to the World Hockey Association "I don't expect to lose anyone said Maloney. The Canucks have eight other players with contracts expiring this year Maloney was in Montreal to talk to the NHL office about the team's schedule and pointed out that "I'm the first general manager who's ever complained about the schedule "I figure I made some progress Next year's schedule is a little better than last year's At least we don't open with four games on the road in Boston, Montreal, Buffalo and Chicago, as we did last season Cents, Bronco chalk up wins By THE CANADIAN PRESS Calgary Centennials got two power-play goals in the first half of the" third period Thurs- day night to pull ahead of New Westminster Bruins en route to a 4-3 victory that moved them within one win of wrapping up their Western Canada Hockey League semi- final.

Home run chase left his batting average flat Aaron finally hits single for Braves The ASSOCIATED PRESS Hank Aaron finally hit a single. "It's about the Atlanta Braves star said Thursday night after getting his first non-home run hit of the baseball season. Ralph Garr, meanwhile, was smacking everything in sight, getting three straight hits, driving in two runs and scoring twice to lead the Braves to a 7-2 victory over San Diego Padres. In Thursday's other National League games, St. Louis Cardinals beat Philadelphia Phillies 6-2, Montreal Expos downed New York Mets 8-5, San Francisco Giants defeated Houston Astros 5-2 and Chicago Cubs edged Pittsburgh Pirates 1-0. In the American League, New York Yankees whipped Boston Red Sox 6-1, Minnesota Twins clipped California Angels 3-2 and Baltimore's game at Detroit was rained out. Braves 7 Padres 2 Aaron's only three hits going into Thursday night's games were the 714th, 715th and 716th home runs of his career. But in 21 other official at-bats, he hadn't managed so much as a single. Then, last Monday night, he hurt his shoulder making a throw. He'd been sidelined since then Against the Padres, he walked, struck out twice, then grounded a single up the middle, putting his average at M67. "The shoulder hurts and I can't swing the Aaron said. "It feels terrible and it keeps me from swinging freely Garr, on the other hand, was a real swinger. He had hits in his last four at-bats Wednesday night in a 6-1 loss to the Padres, then kept the streak going in his first three Thursday night. He grounded out on his fourth time up. It's been quite a turn-around for Garr, who went O-for-16 at the start of the season but has hit at a 21-for-38 clip since then to put his average at .382. Against San Diego, he tripled leading off the first inning and scored on a groundout, singled in the third to knock in two runs and singled and scored in a three-run fifth. Cards 6 Phils 2 Pitcher Lynn McGlothen's two-run double helped the Cards snap the Phils's six- game winning streak. He and Ron Schueler pitched scoreless ball through four innings before St Louis took the lead on McGlothen's hit Bake McBride's sacrifice fly in the sixth gave the Cards the winning run and they added two in the eighth on Ken Reitz' single. "I was looking for a fastball all the said Jim Cox, Canadian champions The Lethbndge mixed five-pin team won the Canadian title earlier this week in Vancouver.

Walton maintains his hot hand By The CANADIAN PRESS Mike Walton has the knack of making a winning goal in the World Hockey Association playoffs sound as casual as kicking a can down a sidewalk "It was just sort of a lucky Walton said Thursday night, describing his winning LOOKING FOR A FUTURE?

"Gordie (Gallant) just kind of shuffled it over to me and I didn't even have time to take a good shot I just turned and let it go." Walton scored at of overtime to give the Saints the opening victory over the Aeros at Houston in their best- of-seven semi-final round. The other semi-final series between Chicago Cougars and Toronto Toros opens tonight at Toronto and the Saints- Aeros series resumes at Houston Saturday night. The Saints return to home ice for the third game Sunday while the second game at To- ronto is scheduled for Monday Walton, the leading scorer during the regular season and again in the now has seven goals and six as- kept in close check by the Aeros through most of Thursday's game.

Houston rallied twice to force the game into overtime. Larry Lund scored at for a 3-3 deadlock Minnesota went back ahead 4-3 on a goal by Mike McMahon at Houston's Ted Taylor scored the tying goal at on a power play., Chicago despite finishing fourth behind the second-place Toros in the East Division, had a 5-2-1 regular-season mark against Toronto. Chicago, led by player- coach Pat Stapleton, outscored Toronto 33-27 and won three games and tied one in Toronto. The Cougars, who eliminated New England Whalers 4-3 in the other East semi-final playoff, are led by centre Ralph Backstrom, a former National Hockey League star. Backstrom had two goals and five assists in ,the series against the Whalers and that's exactly what Ray Sadecki served him. The Montreal rookie drove it over the wall for a two-run homer in the third inning, giving the Expos their winning margin over the staggering Mets. "Sadecki missed with a couple of curves and sliders and I guessed fastball on the said Cox, who also drove in a pair of runs with a single that capped a four-run first inning. Giants 5 Astros 2 Chris Speier drove in three runs and Tom Bradley and Randy Moffitt teamed for a six-hitter to carry the Giants past Houston Bradley baffled the Astros until Cesar Cedeno hit a run- scoring single in the sixth inning, which extended Cedeno's hitting streak to 12 games. Chicago managed only an unearned run off Jim Rooker, but that's all the Cubs needed to send the Pirates tumbling down to their ninth setback in 11 games Rick Monday and Jerry Mo- rales singled in the first inning, with Monday making it to third when second baseman Rennie Stennett committed an error on the throw in. Then Williams delivered a sacrifice fly. From then on, Ken Frailing and Ray Burns did the job, scattering seven Pittsburgh hits Cardston rodeo starts tonight The Tall Timber Stables, three miles west of Cardston and owned and operated by Jim Gladstone, will be the scene of the initial rodeo on the Chinook amateur circuit tonight and Saturday.
