There was some hesitation about what it might mean to them In terms of money and in terms oi recompense should they Injured, but the first re- action was summed up by Brad Park, all-star defenceman (or New York Rangers who said: "I'd love to play. I think it's a helluvan idea." Derek Sanderson, mod young centre for Boston Bruins echoed Park's sentiments: "Anytime, any w here, any rink and under any conditions." Bobby Orr, ttie Bruins' do- fcnceman who has revolutionized the game, said "I'd love adding "hut I think il should be a team that has had an opportu- nity to play together." "And it should be a series of games, not just one here and one back there." Milk River dinner ready Tickets for the J2th annual Milk Rivers Elks Sportsman's Dinner are becoming scarce.

Roticlon's account of the rea- sons for his defeat were Imme- diately disputed by the man- ager, Felix Tnto Zabala, who said the only thing given the Venezuelan boxer prior to the fight was an injection of vi- tamin B-12. According to Rondon, his trainer, Saso Betancourt, gave him a "strange pill" and sugared brandy shortly before the light. Rondon also said his manager had told him before the fight that he would lose to Foster but would net a return bout within Eix months. nlng In the Milk River Elks Club starting at six o'clock. The popularity of dinners of Ibis kind has grown over the years and dinner officials this year had to break with tradi- lion to a certain degree. In past years it was the din- ner's tradition to have southern Albertans exclusively at the head table. Tills year, however, the dinner will see sportsmen from various parts of western Canada at the head lable, This year's featured speaker is Monsignor Athol Murray of Notre Dame College in Wilcox, Saskatchewan. Known far and wide as Pere Murray, he will anchor a head table niglilight- ed by two National Hockey League figures as well as Can- ada's all-around cowboy and o former professional boxer. Vic Sfasiuk, coach of the Cal- ifornia Golden Seals of the NHL and Bob Schmautz of the Vancouver Canucks will be oa hand when dinner is served. Joining them will be Tom Bews of the world of professional ro- deo and Gordon Pouliot, a former fighter and at present an avid outxloorsman. Annual highlight of the din- ner is the selection of an athlete of the year and sportsman o( the year. Master of ceremonies for the affair is Pat Sullivan of The Lcthbridgc Herald. Tickets can still be obtained from any member of the Milk River Elks Club or at Doug's or the LcthbrMge Elks Club. OF TRAILER OPTIONS!

RADFORD, REGIONAL FISHERIES BIO- LOGIST for the south country, has outlined the 1972 work schedule he and fisheries-technician Stan Cle- ments would like to complete. This includes: Most important study will be Dutch Creek along the Kananaskis in the Crowsnest Forest. They are to measure the amount of angling pressure on a typical mountain stream, paying particular attenlion to cut- throat trout, dolly varclen and Rocky Mountain white- fish. The data will be used to determine if changes are required in the fisheries regulations. The majority of the eastern slope streams have been on a closed one year, open the next program for years. Tiie two also hope to start preliminary investiga- tions on the ecological impact that proposed large scale strip mining will have on the Oldman and Liv- ingstone Rivers. The Oldman and the South Saskatchewan are to be examined for mercury content in the fish, Samples of goldeye are to be taken at Monarch, Picture Bulte, Taher, Grassy Lake and Medicine Hat. Sturgeon are also to be tested. At present mercury levels in pike, goldeye, wall- eye, s auger and suckers in the Oldman are said to be too high for safe human consumption. It's hoped the source of the mercury in the South Saskatchewan can be determined. STREAM BANK REHABILITATION assessment along Battle Creek in Cypress Hills Provincial Park in the southeast is to be continued. The effects of wastes from mine workings in the Crowsnest Pass is to be continued in the water qual- ity study of the Crowsnest River. Various lakes throughout tho south are to be netted and tested in an effort to determine growth rates and their conditions. Modification stocking rates could result from these tests. Data from the sturgeon angling questionaire is to be evaluated. While Ihe majority of the water impoundments arc stocked with rainbow trout, Travers Dam and Summit Lakes have kokanee (landlocked Spruce Coulee Reservoir in the Cypress Hills has eastern brook trout and the Oldman River west of Fort Macleod has brown trout. A collection of lake whitefish is to be taken from the commercially fished reservoirs. Some of these studies will require co-operation from anglers during the field work. scores CAPRI BOWL MORNING COFFEE Connie neiry Hobbs 754 f7CD; Ver-ri Nkhclls 350 Chris Burwash 253 Joan Janswi 322 Chris Fll 550 Dorothy 372 Gloria Balais 215; Evelyn Kraus U3; Sandra Oopley 261; Lorraine Royden 2.17; Glenys Cer- slenbuMcr 2.13; Sharon Davidson MARTINIZINO RicVy DeGroct 770 wwjj Way Wahe 278 Vcra NichoHs 760; Hnlpn Deal J6i; Mary Mihalik 275; Berg- man SB3 Hffllher Barnes !79i Jean Passev liS Penny Donald- son 361; Alfce Kolibas 263; Dorothy Mafricioo 327 (7U1J; Rose McNab 272.

The proposal Is for eight in Canada and four' n Moscow, lo take place in Sop- emlrer. The players' bland puts many it them on a direct collision with some o[ the KilL rent offices. Bruins, for one, and St, Louis Jlues, have slated there is no vay they will allow their play- ers lo take part. Montreal Cana- diens, Toronto Maple Leafs and Vancouver Canucks, however, aro committed to co-operale. II o w ever, Lyman Walters, ice-president of Medicor, the company which controls the lanucks, added a wry rider: If the top 20 players in the s'HL are lo he sought for the Canadian loam, he said, "we may not be Canucks finishes! with Ihe worst record in the NHL this icason. Red Berenson of Detroit Ked Wings, president of the NHL association, said most stars would he "honored" o play and that palriotisrn was not the prime molive. Love of Ihe game was the key, he said, adding "we repre- sent the best hockey in the world, but it's spread out now jetween Canada and the United States. It will he the NHL ver- sus international ESPOSITO ENTHUSED Veteran centre Phil Esposito 133 points Ihis year and who set the record of 172 lasl as enthusiastic as Sanderson: ?z, I'd be willing lo play them he said. Then he took a dig al the am- ateur attitude by adding: Just so long as it didn't jeopardize my career as a pro- fessional." Allan Eagleson, Orr's legal ad- viser and executive director o f the NHL players' association, said he is annoyed by the posi- tion laken by recalcitrant own- ers of teams. ;'It's unfortunate that the vested Interests of the owners and general managers are inter- fering in this matter. As for Adams (owner Wes- ton Adams, Jr., of he's American and couldn't care less about a player's loyalty to his country. And as for Abel (St. Louis general manager Sid he couldn't care less and has no interest in Canada, fie has forgotten where he came from." Abel was born In Melville, Sask. "If NHL owners and general managers oppose the players in their attempt to play for Can- Eagleson said, "they'll be in my bad books. And they know they can't afford that these days." SOME CAUTIOUS Still, the caution was there.' "If I got injured in a series ike they're planning, I'd want .o be sure I'd be taken care Ssposito said. Eddie Westfall, penalty-killing ace for the Bruins, also look a realistic view: 'First, if its going lo be a makeshift leani, how long are hey going lo work togehter be- fore tiie series starts?

"I'm more interested in the money. A scries like1 Ihis be a gold mine with the right promotion. If you put through enough money, you'll gel all the big-name players wanting to SO." TKACZUK AGRMKS Hanger centre Wall Tkaczuk along with Uial. "They'd have to make il worthwhile, for us (pros) to play. I'd have to think about it but would probably go for it." He runs a hockey school which has classes up to Sept. 1 and would have to make oilier arrangements. Hawk star Bobby Hull ex- pressed guarded willingness: "Those guys (the Russians) play hockey all season long. Why can't they do it (hold the tournament) during a break in Ibc regular Chicago centre Stan Mikila was more curt and lo the point: "I'd consider it." he said. All-star right winger Hod Gil- bert of (lie Mangers said "I'd love to play." "H would be a great honor." Would ho fear an injury just before the start of the NHL sea- son?

Czechoslovakia defeated the Soviet Union 3-2 Thursday to clinch the world championship and end Russia's nine-year reign as world champion. The Czechs earlier in the tourna- ment tied Russia 3-3. The victory was tinged with irony. It happened In Prague, where wiid demonstrations broke out n the 1969 championship when Czechoslovakia defeated Russia :wice in Stockholm but still saw :he Russians walk away with :he title. The championship followed the August, inva- Humbolt ties Cop series HUMBOLDT, Sask. (CP) Bobby McDonald had a shut- out, as Humboldt Broncos roared back In Iheir Centennial !up semi final hockey series by trouncing Hed Deer Rust- lers 7-0 Thursday night. The win lies their best of seven series at one game each after Ked Deer won the first contest 3-2 in overtime Wcd- day. The next three games wit] be in Red Deer Saturday, Sun- day and Monday. McDonald made 31 saves to record the well earned shut- out. Red Deer used two goal- tenders Phil Wandler re- placed Graham Parsons at tho start of the third period and they combined for 36 saves. Handy Smith opened the scoring at of the first period. Other Humboldt goals were by Neil Haryliw with two, Lloyd Hilgers, Pat Roon- ey, Tom Gchlen and Ross Gil- Christ. Red Deer bad one major penalty and five of II minors sion of Czechoslovakia by the Soviet Union and its Warsaw! pact allies and anti-Soviet scnti- meet still remains here. Secondly, the Russian defeat came just as arrangements were being made to have the best Canadian Is National Hockey League pros- play Russia in an eight-game September. With the minus their world crown that proposed showdown will lose some of Its glamor. BIGGEST IN YEARS The Czech victory here oomed as the biggest upset since when Russia first en- tered world hockey play and upset Canada to win the title. Canada was represented that year by Toronto East York. In addition to nine consecutive world titles, Russia has won five consecutive Olympic titles, including the 1972 crown at Sap- poro, Japan. Following the Czech victory, fans jammed famed Wenceslas Square, jeering "Shaibu, the slogan of. the So- viet hockey team. The slogan translates as "the puck." Several celebrants were ar- rested near the of bloody battles during the Russian invasions of Czechoslo- vakia. The crowd later was dis- persed by police who continued heavy patrol of the area. CZECHS LEAD Czechoslovakia now leads the s I x -t e a m double round-robin tournament with eight wins and a tie for 17 points. The Soviet Union has seven wins, a tie and a loss for 15 points. Each team has one more game to play. The tournament ends Saturday. The Russians could tie the Czechs In points should Russians win over Sweden In their finale and the Czechs lose to Finland Satur- day. However, the Czechs still would take the title because of having defeated the Russians. The first method of breaking a points-tie Is picking the winner of the game between the two tied teams.
