Susan Smith Doing Well EDMONTON (CP Susan Smith of Edmonton, a member of Canada's British Common- wealth Games swimming team, was reported "coming along nicely" Thursday after aa oper- ation earlier this week to re- move gall stones. "She's feetag grumpy and on- comfortable but she's doing said the mother of the J9-year-old swimmer. She said the doc-tors managed to go around major muscles rattier than cut them as is the usual procedure so "her recu- peration should be much quick- talking about letting her out next Wednesday." Miss Smith, named a week to the team which will rep- resent Canada in the Games at Edinburgh, Scotland, holds na- tional records in the 200- and 400-metre individual medky.i and the 100- and 200-metre but- terfly events. The operation means she wffl not be able to compete for at least another month. SULLY SAYS -By Pat Sullivan WOULD YOU MIND very much, if I didn't mention anything about hockey for once? Well wbetner it pleases you or not, I'm going to stay away from it. As' I sit here writing, it makes me happy to see the weatherman it ai least trying to bring us some good weather. I just can't wait to get 'out on the golf links and really make a mess of things. I spent half my time last year gunching my way around the course' and still came away with a tropu'y to polish. 1 did get a little bit of nelp from the other members of 'ihe Herald golf team, mind you. Early stories indicate this journal's golf team will be hard to beat this time around. of golf teams, the city men's golf leagues, one eacn at Henderson Lake and the Country Club, get under way Monday, May 4, providing we gee some sun. The Lakeside Golf League will again have 16 teams in the running for top honors while the Country Club will go with the same 10 from last season. Good news came out of Henderson Lake this past week. The annual First Chance golf tourna- ment is set for the weekend1 of May 16, 17 and 18 and it has returned to the format that made it one of .the best tourneys in Alberta for a number of years. The news release that hit this desk says the event will be a 54-hole medal play affair which means every man for himself. The past three or four have been best-ball events, but that has all changed. I, for one, like the idea of going back to the individual play tourney. Don't get me wrong, some of my best times have been at a best-ball tourna- ment, but there is also a strong need for an event where you earn your merits individually. Hackers like myself can always find a spot in the 23rd or 24th flight, so it goes to prove there is room for everyone. This year's First Chance kicks off Saturday and ends Monday with a full weekend of activity and entertainment for The entry list is limited to the first 180 entries which can be forwarded to Henderson Lake Golf Club, P.O. Box 1070, Leth- bridge. The closing date for entries is May 12. How does this sound for your entry fee? Besides helping junior golf, to which proceeds will go, you get two buffet dinners, and after watching some golfers eat this could amount to six or seven average meals, a cabaret dinner and dance..' If you're like me, you will go for the added attraction, the horse race. Not that it's something new, but it is by far the most popular spectator attraction. All this takes place on the holiday weekend at the Lake layout. Yolving CiacianaU at St Louis Cardinals, vtt out.
