West of Gae Company Phone 328-4421 Government criticized for introducing bill How can football come before inflation? OTTAWA An all party deal to vote today on the government's controversial football bill was thrown into confusion moments before the Commons adjourned Monday night House leaders for all parties agreed privately to end second reading debate today and vote on whether to send the bill to the Commons health and welfare committee for detailed study and probably extensive amendments. An order paving the way for the vote was scheduled to be passed before the House adjourned Monday. But the deal was knocked out of bounds when Jack Horner (PC Crowfoot) entered the House late in the day and spoke through the final minutes to adjournment. The order was never brought up. A government spokesman said Mr Horner may have been unaware of the all party agreement and disrupted plans unknowingly. If so, the vote might yet take place today. Conservative spokesmen say several other party members want to speak if no agreement is reached. The bill, which bans America'n football leagues from Canada, came up for provoking a storm of criticism from Conservative MPs PRIORITIES BLASTED Almost without exception, they condemned the government for introducing the bill ahead of measures to curb inflation and solve national labor disputes. "This is a government so out of touch that they have lost the right to govern, that they are unfit to Walter Baker (PC Grenville Carleton) charged as Liberals and Conservatives jeered and shouted at one another across the Commons floor. Mr. Baker, deputy Conservative House leader, asked why the government was forcing a football debate when the country was wracked by serious problems. "We "aren't, you yelled back Norman Cafik, parliamentary secretary to Health Minister Marc Lalonde, the sponsor of the bill. Mr. Cafik said he agrees more important problems remain unsolved. This was why the government had limited itself to two speakers Mr. Lalonde and James Fleming Both spoke on the first day of debate last Thursday. Mr. Baker said the government is responsible for all bills brought forward. The Conservatives would not "become the unwitting lackies of the government" by rushing it through. All speakers Monday were Conservatives except for Rene Matte Douglas Roche (PC Edmonton Strathcona) put his party's case in a nutshell when, he challenged: "Give us important legislation or give us an Taking less than a minute, he attacked the bill as "a distortion of a decaying Parliament" and focused on Liberal political weaknesses. "The Prairies wouldn't vote Liberal if Prime Minister Pierre Elliott Trudeau became the water boy for the Regina he shouted The Liberals lost all but three of the 45 Prairie seats, including all 19 in Alberta, in the 1972 election. Mr. Matte, the first Social Credit MP to speak, said he is not convinced the measure is necessary. "It's not true that it's a national sport; it doesn't interest all Canadians. It's not national sport in Canada; football does not interest the Quebecer." Flyers are after home wins, have one victory in New York Cooling off the fans When Buenos Aires soccer fans corne to see their favorite team, they are not always happy. This has been a losing year so, when the bottles start to fly the fire- men come in and cool off the fans with hoses, successfully. Officials are scorched CHICAGO (CP; The talk around Chicago Stadium hinged not so much on the ailing Black Hawks but on officiating for tonight's third game of the National Hockey League Stanley Cup semi-final with Boston Bruins. The hurts are slight, with both goalie Tony Esposito and Cliff Koroll sustaining leg in- juries in Sunday's game, an 8- 6 loss in Boston to even the best-of-seven series at 1-1. Both players worked out after returning home. Chicago coach Billy Reay, however, was still burning about the officiating in Sunday's game. Reay said officials are giving Boston defencernan Bobby Orr too much credit for his academy-award performances. "It's brutal what Orr gets away says Reay. "He jumped into the penalty on (Jim) Pappin. pick Redmond hardly touched him and he went down." Both misdemeanors occurred in the second period of Sunday's game. Pappin, who claimed Orr was lunging for the puck without any effort from the Chicago winger, started to protest to referee Bob Myers and had a 1'- minute misconduct added to the minor offence. Redmond's penalty set the state for Boston captain John Bucyk's third power-play goal of the game that knotted the score at 4-4. Reay said he told Myers after the game "he was gutless." Midget girls set practice The Lethbridge midget girls' Softball team will hold try-outs at the northwest diamond of Wilson Junior High School Thursday night. All girls 15-17 years of age are welcome to attend the practice set for a six o'clock start. Girls 17 years of age are not eligible if their birthday came prior to January 1, 1974. If further information is required you may contact Ms. McQuire at 329-3594. "Orr was flopping every time one of our guys got near him and he was getting away with murder all over the ice whenever we had the puck slashing, tripping, hooking, in- terference: you name it "I guess ever since that near riot we had in Boston, the night the fans thought Wally Harris should have called (Bill) White for tripping Orr and all those bottles were thrown, officials are afriad to call anything against him or overlook anything that even resembles a, foul against him." The Bruins, meanwhile, ar- rived later in the day and were not scheduled to work out at the stadium until today. They were of one mind, tonight's contest, starting at p m.

That makes sense, of course, but the Flyers are thinking about New York's Madison Square Garden where they have had their problems. "We can't let them win here because our record up there (New York) isn't too said centre Rick MacLeish. Isn't too good? MacLeish might win an award for under- statement of the year. The Flyers have won in New York once in seven 15, 1968 The Flyers, with a 1-0 lead in their best-of-seven semi- final series following their 4-0 win last Saturday, get a chance to add to that total at home tonight. The game is scheduled to start at p.m. MST and will be televised nationally by the CBC. "They'll be better you can bet on said Phila- delphia coach Fred Shero. "I'm sure they were tired from the Montreal series." New York coach Emile Francis agreed. "We stood around and watched them forecheck all Francis. "We'll have more motors on Tuesday." The Rangers have several members on the limp, with some of the injuries remaining as hold-overs from their quarter final series with Montreal. Leftwinger Vic Hadfield walked without the cast that had been placed on his injured left ankle more than one week ago. Hadfield is expected to be ready to return to the New York lineup in time for Sun- day's fourth game in New York. Walt Tkaczuk, the Rangers' centre, knocked out of action in the early minutes of the first game by a blow to the temple, said he is ready. Ron Harris, rugged right- winger-centreman, who hurt his shoulder and chest against the Flyers, echoed Tkaczuk's comments. The tough Philadelphia crew, apparently escaped the opener with a minimum of bumps and bruises. They were loose and confident at their Monday morning workout at the University of Pennsylvania rink. One of the more exuberant was defenceman Andre (Moose) Dupont, whose nickname stems from his earlier playing days when he carried excess weight and when some of his moves had all the finesse of a charging bull moose.

The Cougars recovered, however, and took a 4-3 win over Toronto Toros to even their semi-final series at one game each. Third and fourth games will be played in Chicago Sunday and Tuesday "It seemed we were being frustrated by a lot of minor penalties in the second Stapleton said "But fortunately the Toros only got one power-play goal against us.''

However. Bob Leduc was the only Toronto player to score on a power play, at which tied the score 1-1. Toronto, 6-4 winners in the opening game of the series last Friday, made it 3-1 with goals by Tom Martin and Wayne Dillon before Chicago rallied. The Toros got their goals in four minutes and 32 seconds Rookie Francois Rochon's first playoff goal, a 30-foot slapshot at of the third period, snapped a 3-3 tie and gave the Cougars the win. Rochon, 21-year-old left winger from Montreal, beat goalie Les Binkley from the rim of the le't faceoff circle after taking a passs from Brian Coales. We've been carrying a few extra players and didn't use him lRochon) in the first game against the said Stapletor. "He's going to be a good one and should mature with a little more experience." Rochon starred for Beavers of the r_uebec Major Junior Hockey League in 1972-73. In regular- season play with the Cougars, he had 12 goals and 11 assists. Chicago's centre Ralph Backstrom had two goals, his third and fourth of the playoffs. Right winger Don Gordon added the other Chicago goal.
