Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - April 26, 1973, Lethbridge, Alberta 11 THS IETHBRIDGE HERAID TWsdoy, April 26, 1973-------------------- San Diego lakes a chance, picks Walton Brewer, DiGregorio go early NEW YORK (AP) Defen- sive stalwart Jim Brewer of Minnesota and Providence backcourt ace Ernie DiGregorio headed a list of 20 players se- cretly picked by American Bas- ketball Association clubs in January. The association its 1973 college draft Wednesday by selecting 120 more Brewer was picked by New Charles might not come back DALLAS (AP) Golfer Bob Charles will be heading for Eu- rope after the United States Open this summer and might not come back. It will depend on how he fares between now and then. "I'v e got to play where I think I can win." said the left- hander, a fixture on the Ameri- can pro tour. "I haven't won here in five years.' said Charles, former British Open champion and once a bank clerk in his native Christchurch, New Zealand. "In the same time, in five years, I've played 55 tourna- ments out of the U.S. and won 12 of he said of his deci- sion to devote more time to competition in Europe and South Africa. "I just want to win. That's it much more than the money. "There is nothing more de- structive, more confidence-de- stroying, than going week after week without winning. It's very depressing." The 37-year-old veteran, who does everything right-handed accept play golf, hit the U.S. tour in 1963 and became the first lefty ever to win an Ameri- can tour title with his triumph in the Houston Open that year. Later that season, he beat Phil Rodgers in a playoff for the British Open crown. He won three other titles on the North American tour in the succeeding years. But his last win came in the 1968 Canadian Open. He lost in a playoff for the 1970 New Or- leans Open and had his best fin- ish since then with a tie for fourth in the Monsanto Open at Pensacola, Fla. two Aveeks ago. By that time he'd already de- cided to establish a residence in South Africa and concentrate his efforts outside the U.S. "I'll play through the U.S. Open June he said. "Then I'll be going to Europe, probably for the rest of the sea- son. I'm going to be p'aying there, and In South Africa, much, much more. "Over there, I'm considered one of the prime favorites, a real threat to win the tourna- ment. Here, I'm just an- other man in the field. York Nets and DiGregorio, an all-American, was chosen by Kentucky. Cleveland made Brewer the No. 2 selection of the first round and Buffalo followed by taking DiGregorio in the Na- tional Basketball Association draft Tuesday. The first two picks of a 10- round ABA draft of college sen- iors were Dwight Lamar of Southwestern Louisiana and Larry Finch of Memphis Slate. San Diego took Lamar and Memphis selected Finch. WALTON PICKED San Diego also led off a spe- cial two-round draft of under- graduates and picked two-time all-American Bill Walton, who has said he will return to UCLA for his senior season. Memphis followed by naming all-Ameri- can David Thompson, a North Carolina State sophomore...... Following the regular first- round selections of Lamar, picked by NBA Detroit in the fourth round, and Finch, taken by NBA Los Angeles, in the fourth, San Antonio chose Mike D'Antonio of Marshall and New York took Olympian Doug Col- lins of Illinois State. Collins was picked by Philadelphia as the No. 1 selection in the NBA draft. Later, Lamar's lawyer said the 6-foot-2 sharpshooting guard sign a long-term contract with San Diego. "Monday we consummated an arrangement Avhereby the ABA entered into a long-term con- tract with Dwight said Bob F. Wright. "We have plans to be in San Diego Sunday to I complete the arrangement." Wright said the NBA was "se- riously trying" to negotiate a contract with Lamar, but "when we reached an agree- ment with the ABA, we noiified the NBA to take him off their list." The only player in the history of college basketball to have led both the college division and university division in scoring, Lamar is fourth on the all-time collegiate scoring list with points.

Dwayne Radford regional biologist, says a third of the people licensed to fish for sturgeon actually caught one or more, which is as good a percentage as in some trout streams. Here is his statement: "Since 1968 it has been legal to fish for lake sturgeon in Alberta by means of a spe- cial Sturgeon Angling Licence which permits an an- gler to take two sturgeon of any size, according to the provisions of the Alberta Sport Fishing Regulations. Because this season is unique, and lake sturgeon are clas- sified as "trophy" fish by most anglers, information on the harvest of sturgeon from the South Saskatchewan Riv- er was obtained by means of a questionnaire forwarded to all anglers who purchased a special Sturgeon Angling Li- The average weight of the sturgeon caught by anglers about 14 pounds although sturgeon as large as 85 pounds were reported. Over 50 of the sturgeon reported weighed from 20-85 pounds. No other fish in Alberta (even lake trout) can match the large size of lake sturgeon in the South Saskatchewan Riv- er, and their trophy status is cence between 1968-72. A total of 279 such licences have been sold since the season began. "The number of anglers that purchased Sturgeon An- gling Licences varied from a high of 135 in 1968-69 to a low of 24 in 1971-72 and 1972-73. Most anglers who purchased the special licence did fish for .sturgeon at least once. Thirly-two per cent of the anglers caught at least one sturgeon. This degree of suc- cess is typical of most sport fisheries. (For example the same per cent of anglers censused on Dutch Creek in 1972 caught at least one cut- throat trout; the rest were A total catch of 168 sturgeon was reported by anglers during the study period, of which 46 per cent were kept and the remainder released. From this informa- tion it was estimated that about 111 sturgeon were har- vested during the last five years (an average of only 22.2 annually or 22 per cent of the potential catch of 558 fish from definitely warranted. Almost all anglers who responded to our questionnaire were in fav- or of continuing the special season for this fish. "On the basis of the fore- going results a new manage- ment program is being re- viewed for sturgeon angling in Alberta which would per- mit a greater harvest of tro- phy size fish of this species." Argonauts upset TORONTO (CP) Toronto Argonauts have filed a com- plaint with commissioner Jake Gaudaur of the Canadian Foot- ball League that involves tam- pering charges against Green Bay Packers. The protest involves Jim StUlwagon, 240-pound import de- fensive lineman, who recently sold his house in Toronto, with- drew from the CFL pension plan and returned to the United States. Jim Kensil, executive director of the National Football League, said Tuesday a complaint bad been received and that his of- fice had made inquiries con- cerning the matter. "I think tampering is a bit of an overstatement, but, yes, we did hear from Mr. Gaudaur's office and we have acquired the required information and for- warded it to the CFL commis- Kensil said. Stillwagon's two year con- tract with Toronto is on its option year and if he fails to report to the Argonauts, he would be suspended from play- ing football in Canada or the U.S. John Barrow, general manag- er of the Eastern Conference club, said the Argonauts have been approached twice by Bill Tobin, director of player per- sonnel for the NFL Packers, who called Toronto coach John Rauch. Tobin was informed that Stillwagon was still under op- tion to the Argos and not avail- able, BarroAv said. Race results CALGARY
