Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - April 28, 1973, Lethbridge, Alberta JO THE 1ETHBRIDGE HERAID Soiuriiay, Ap-il 28, 1973 Six locals in bid for titles GUY POMOHAC Senior bowlers close out year The age restriction says 55 years of age and over. But the average age is closer to 70. Senior citizens play an ac- tive part in bowling in Leth- bridge. Recently the H a r t 'Taxidermy league wrapped up another successful year with the presentation of team and individual awards. As part of a banquet and dance, 110 senior citizens took part in the awards night. League champions for the 1972-73 season were the team cf Maggie and Dave Oliver, Marj Fleming, Coby Waldron and Erie Graham. Section "A" champs following the rollcffs were Henry Brown, Doris Vaile.

Men's high average went to Frank Bernhart with a 218 i while the women's high aver- age was recorded by Ruby Oseen with a 202. Vaughan Tennant enjoyed the high triple amongst the men with an 870 while Velma Mil- ler chalked up a 701 for the gate.

The most improved bowler amongst the gals was Katie Pirk while Bill Jensen showed the most improvement for the men. SHORT STOP AUTO ITD. 6 Ave. and 6 St. South LETHBRIDGE Phone 328-6586 Dial VOLVO Bob Dieksoii takes over DALLAS (AP) Bob Dick- son had a chance to fall back Friday in the second round of the Byron Nelson golf tourna- ment, but he became the leader in a situation that -would have unraveled him two years ago. Dickson, beginning to flash the promise expected of h i m when he came out of the ama- teur ranks of Oklahoma State in 1967, shot a four-under-psr 66 to take a one-stroke edge at the 36-hole mark over Don Bies of Seattle, the first round leader. The big test for Dickson, who made birdie putts of eight, 10, 12 and three feet, came at the 553-yard, par-five 15th hole when he dunked his second shot in a lake. His fourth shot sailed over the green but he saved par with a 40-foot putt off the fringe. HAIR-FLAIR Beauty Salon 503 7th St. S. PHONC 3284197 ready By PAT SULLIVAN Herald Sports Editor For more than a decade judo and Lethbridge have gone hand in hand. Four years ago, the Leth- bridge Judo Club played host to the Canadian judo cham- pionships. Well, here we go again. Next Saturday, at the Uni- versity of Lethbridge gym- nasium, the best in Canada v.ill once again be guests of the YMCA Judo Club. Yosh Sersda was the coach of the local ciub when the Cana- dian championships were here and he still is. Next Saturday he will direct six of his Judoka in the Canadian Ycuth championships. It is expected that every province, as well as both ter- ritories, will send a 10-mem- ber team. To show you just how strong the Lethbridge club is, it earned six of the 10 Al- berta berths. Wearing local colors in the one day competition for Judofca 15 17 years of age, be Joe Meli, Michael Calder, Guy Pomohac, Scott Tanner, Tom Greenway and Donald Tsujiura. From the Lethbridge com- petition, a Canadian team will be chosen to represent our country in the European championships to be held in June of this year. Canada is the only non European country invited to send a team. Meli, bora in Lethbridge in 1956, currently attends Catholic Central High School. He got his start in judo at the ripe old age of eight years, under the direction of Yosh Senda. In nine years of competitive judo, placing first has be- come almost a habit with Meli. He has won 29 competi- tions while adding six sec- ond-place finishes to his credit. In 1972 Meli was selected to represent Canada in Ger- many on the 12 man Cana- dian youth team. Meli became one of the youngest Judoka to receive his black belt in Canada, he was 16 years old. He has been a provincial champion six limes and was chosen to the second team in New Westminster to fight the 10 man United States team. Although his first love would appear to be judo, Meli is very capable in foot- ball, soccer, b a s k e tball, baseball and hockey. This past winter he was captain of. the Lethbridge Midget Elks, provincial champions. Calder, like Meli. finds fin- ishing first to his liking. This Grade 11 student at the Lethbridge Collegiate Ir.- slitute began a string of wins in November of 1968 in a lo- cal competition. Since that time he has vvon in Calgary in 1969 and Jasper Place the sams year. He returned to Jasper the following year ard had to set- tle for second place. He has JOE MELI not finished second in any major competition since. In 1970 and 1971 he was first in Lethbridge and then chalked up triumphs in Lon- donderry in 1972 and 1973 win- ning the intermediate title each time. Calder also enjoys baseball, having played on all-star teams in Little League and Senior Little League. Ke was with Paterson Junior Hiffh School when they won the city football crown. But next to judo, it's skiing for Calder. Pomohac divides his athlet- ic times between judo end track and field, under coach George Gemer. A relative newcomer to judo, Pomohac has been at the sport for 2% years. But his rapid progress has im- pressed both his own coach and opposing coaches. This year, while just 15 years of age, Pomohac was third in both intermediate and senior competitions. Quite a feather in the young man's cap. This will be Pomohac's sec- ond national judo champion- ship. Pomohac, who attends Cath- olic Central, played with a provincial hockey champion last year, the A.C.T. Bantam Reps. He was rookie of the year for the CCHS Cougars in the Southern Alberta High School Football League. But track and field has caught a great deal of his fancy. Having competed in local and provincial meets over the years, Pomohac has his sights set on the Canada Summer Games in Burnaby, B.C. this August. But at the moment, It is judo first. The preliminary competi- tion gets under way next Sat- urday at 10 a.m. with the semi-finals and finals, along with the official opening cere- monies, at seven o'clock. Tickets for the event can be obtained from any mem- ber of the YMCA Judo Club or the U of L Judo Club, YMCA main desk, Hagen Auto Electric or at the door. Resumes of Tanner. Green- way and Tsujiura will be in Tuesday's edition. Busby fires no-hitter at Tigers Two hits were too many for Mets INSTA-ROLL TRAVEL AWNINGS PREBCO Awning remains on the trailer when travelling.

NOR7H PHONE 328-4421 (WEST OF GAS COMPANY) By THE ASSOCIATED PRESS When you're pitching for New York Mets, baseball's latest hit- less wonders, one bad pitch is usually one more than you can afford, so 5t was bad news when Tom Seaver doubled his limit Friday night. They were consecutive pitches in the fourth inning after Seaver had retired the first 11 Atlanta Braves. Hank Aaron hit the first one for his 678th career home run and Dar- rell Evans took Seaver's next offering for another homer. With Pat Dobson stifling the Mets on three hits, that was all the Braves needed for a 2-0 triumph. Elsewhere in the National League, San Francisco Giants blanked St. Louis Cardinals 5-0. Philadelphia Phillies downed Cincinnati Reds 3-1. Chicago Cubs beat San Diego Padres 10-1 2 ard Houston Astros defeated' Montreal Expos 6-5 in 30 in- nings. The Angeles-Pitts- j burgh came was rained out. Aaron said Seaver "hung a curve that was a mistake and i probably the last time I will get that Mnd of pitch from him." Dobson didn't make any mis- takes, although he yielded sin- gles to Willie Mays and Rusty Bassett withdraws TORONTO (OP) John Bas- sett Jr. has withdrawn a pro- posal to make the Coliseum on the Canadian National Exhibi- tion grounds into a home lor Ot- tawa Nationals. The withdrawal was con- tained in a letter to Metropoli- tan Toronto council which was expected to deal with the pro- posal Friday.

Staub in the fourth inning and another to Felix Millan in the I ninth. He walked one and struck out four. "I was surprised at my con- j he said. "I hadn't pitched in six days. When I pitch every four days everything falls into place. I probably pitched as good games as this last year (with Balti- more) and lost some of them for various reasons." Catcher Johnny Gates, who j came with Dobson in the off- i season trade, wasn't too sure about that j "This is by far the best game he has ever he said. j "He pitched a super ballgamc. j about 60 per cent sliders and 40 per cent fast balls." Detroit Tigers couldn't get a hit off Kansas City rookie Steve Busby in spring training and i continued thai frustrating in- efficiency in the regular Ameri- can League baseball season Fri- jday night. I "I just threw as hard as T could for as long as I said the 23-year-old right- hander after pitching a 3-0 no- hitter over the Tigers, the first no-hitter in the American League since 1970. The performance, called the "greatest thrill of my life" by the 6-foot-2, 205-pounder. was fashioned on a heavy diet of fastballs. It wasn't the same kind of game that Busby pitched in the exhibition season, when he combined on a no-hit- ter with Doug Bird against De- troit. "Down there at Fort Myers. Fla., I tried to hit said the blonde Busby. "Tonight I threw 75 per cent fastballs and nearly all the rest sliders." In other American League games, Texas Rangers defeated Milwaukee Brewers 4-2, Cleve- land Indians downed California Angels 6-2 and Oakland Athlet- ics nipped Baltimore Orioles 4-3 in 12 innings. Two games were rained at JTcw York and Chicago at Boston, MICHAEL CALDER Short sport PLAYER TRANSFERRED LONDON (AP) Soccer star Frank McLintock, who cap- tained Arsenal to the English League and cup double in 1971, was transferred Friday to Queen's Park Rangers for Arsenal put the 33-year-1 old Scot up for sale earlier this week because it could no longer guarantee him a regular place on the first team. SIGNS CONTRACT BOSTON (AP) Defence- man Dallas Smith signed a multi year contract Friday with Boston Bruins, putting an end to speculation that be might leave the National Hock- ey League for the World Hock- ey Association. Neither the length of the contract or salary was disclosed.
