Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - April 30, 1974, Lethbridge, Alberta Tuesday, April 30, 1974 THE LETHBRJDGE HERALD 11 Henderson Lake Golf Club rounding into great shape By PAT SULLIVAN Herald Editor This past weekend may have been a lost one for Southern Alberta golfers, but just think of the good it will do the courses. One executive member from Henderson Lake Golf Club feels this past snowfall will be just what is needed for a banner year at the Lake Layout. According to club professional Earl Francis, the course weathered the winter extremely well and is rounding into shape rapidly. While the Lakeside Golf League was forced to postpone Monday's opening, action will begin Thursday night. But the biggest news out of Henderson is the annual Chinook Classic golf tournament set for the holiday weekend May 18-20. Some of the finest golfers in Alberta and neighboring provinces take in the three-day tourney that sees the Labatt's Brewer trophy go to the low gross champion and the CHEC Radio silverware to the low net winner. Limited to the first 160 paid entries the three day event is a 54-medal competition. While the Chinook Classic will hog the limelight for the next three weeks, Francis had some very interesting news concerning the club championship. The club championship, in past years, has been somewhat of a lackadaisical affair. Not this year assures Francis. Fifty four holes of medal play will decide the club champ the first Saturday and Sunday in June and the second Sunday as well. "This year's club champion will be recognized as said Francis. He will go to the Alberta amateur with an expense cheque from the club. The four low qualifiers will go the The Herald Districts. Jim Shigehiro is club captain this season while Logan Tait is president. Both agree with Francis in their expectations of a great year. One item that has been a bone of contention with a number of members, outside tournaments, has been all but eliminated. They, will no longer overshadow club events. As Francis puts it "club membership must be catered to." As for Francis himself, when he finds his way out of the equipment that is hanging from the ceiling in the pro shop, he expects: to play in the Canadian Professional Golf Association championship in Calgary at Willow Park in July, and then it's off to the Saskatchewan Open in Saskatoon in August. Even assistant professional Ian Schmidt will do some travelling this year as he will take part in the Alberta Open and Alberta Assistant Pro tourney. He will also take along two board members to play with him in the Pro-Am. May 5, this coming Sunday, will see the men's opening field day. Open to all male club members, the one day affair is to get acquainted with the 45 new members and renew old acquaintances after the winter break. There will be a draw for best-ball partners with trophies for low gross and net. All appears in readiness for the 1974 swing season. Even the new eighth hole will be ready, it is hoped, by mid July. When the hole is ready, Henderson Lake will be all set for the best of golfers. The new eighth will be just an added test of skill for local and visiting shotmakers. Hull expected to miss Reay in need of left winger CHICAGO (CP) Dennis Hull may have been playing in the shadow of older brother Bobby when he came into the National Hockey League, but now his presence in a Chicago Black Hawk uniform would lighten coach Billy Reay's problems. A gifted skater with thunder in his shot, Hull missed the fifth game of the Chicago- Boston Bruins playoff Sunday night. It was evident as the Hawks fell 6-2 to Boston and behind 3- 2 in the best-of-seven Stanley Cup semi-final. Clement injured PHILADELPHIA (CP) Another player was injured Monday as New York Rangers and Philadelphia Flyers prepared for tonight's fifth game of their National Hockey League semi-final. Tonight's game is scheduled to start at p.m. MDT, with the best-of-seven series tied 2-2. The latest casualty was Philadelphia forward Bill Clement who saw his first action in this year's playoffs Sunday as the Rangers defeated the Flyers 2-1. Clement injured his knee in a workout and general manager Keith Allen said the Buckingham, Que., native may have ligament damage. Left winger Bob Kelly of the Flyers received a similar injury in New York last Thursday night. He still is on the sidelines.- In New York, coach Emile Francis said Ron Harris likely will play despite a chest and shoulder injury that has ham- pered him since the series be- gan. But the New York coach does not expect to have right winger Bruce MacGregor in the lineup tonight. MacGregor, already limping with a sore knee, now has a sore right elbow. He was forced out after the first period of the fourth game because of the injury. Veteran Ranger left winger Vic Hadfield, who made his only appearance of the series in the third game, is a doubtful starter. Hadfield was fitted with a brace Monday to protect and strengthen his injured ankle and said he would play tonight. Allen had one piece of good news, He said the condition of vet- eran defenceman Barry Ashbee, in hospital in New York with a severe eye injury, was described by doctors as "vastly improved." Ashbee, 34, was struck in the right eye Sunday by a puck. Ashbee's wife, Donna, was in New York Monday to consult with eye specialists. "The doctor told me that Barry can see out of the eye again, but they want to keep him there for another four days or she said. "They don't want to move him in case the eye begins to bleed again." OFFICE FURNITURE OFFICE MACHINES SPECIAL OFFICE SUPPLIES (Ininoob 319-7 St. South OFFICE MACHINE REPAIRS Phone 327-4591 The series resumes tonight at MDT on the CBC and Hull is expected to remain sidelined with a muscle spasm which struck in the fourth game last Thursday. "There's nothing said one club official of Hull's condition. "We wpn't know anything until today." Beyond Hull, Chicago has no experienced wingers to patrol the left side of the ice. Hull, Pit Martin and Jim Pappin were the team scoring leaders during the season. Reay split them up to balance the lines for the playoffs, moving Chico Maki to right wing and placing Pappin with Dale Tallon and rookie Darrv Rota. Rota, however, has much to learn on the basis of his play his first year out of junior hockey. And Germain Gagnon, Dave Kryskow and John Marks, a converted defenceman, failed to give Reay any indication they were ready to fill the breach Sunday night, or tonight. Reay said the game Sunday "boiled down to that 3Vz min- utes at the start of the second period. Our defence let us down and the Bruins were strong. NHL warns McFarland MONTREAL (CP) Tele- vision commentator Brian McFarlane has been told by the National Hockey League not to make any more impromptu visits on the ice as he did during Sunday's Stanley Cup playoff game in New York between the Rangers and Philadelphia Flyers. McFarlane, intermission host on the weekly NHL telecasts on the National Broadcasting Corp., jumped on the ice with a portable microphone early in the overtime period after Flyers' defenceman Barry Ashbee had suffered an eye injury after stopping a shot. NHL president Clarence Campbell said Monday night that McFarlane's actions were "improper in the first place" and that he had been told not to do it again. Greens wintered well Earl Francis, club professional at Henderson Lake Golf Club, which should be ready by mid-July, in the backgroung. putts on the current seventh green with the tricky new eighth green, Dislikes proposal, will unload Alouettes Berger throws wrench into bill By GLENN COLE MONTREAL Berger wants to sell his Montreal Alouettes and at least one member of Parliament feels the attempt to unload the Canadian Football League franchise could result in the disappearance of professional football from Canada's largest city. Rene Matte, Social Credit member from Champlain, told the Commons Monday that the disappearance of the Alouettes will destroy the principle of a bill to ban American-based football leagues from Canada. Health Minister Marc La- londe, who introduced the legislation after the fledgling World Football League announced plans to establish a franchise in Toronto, rejected Matte's statement. Berger said Monday he was opposed to the legislation which was a catalyst in his decision to sell. The legislation has alienated Montrealers from the CFL and the situation in football had become chaotic since it was introduced. Berger, owner of the club since 1970. said he would ask the CFL to buy out his fran- chise and "dispose of it as they see fit in the same manner as they did in the case of the Toronto Argonauts." Later he said he might reconsider if the bill was withdrawn. The Argos were sold to Wil- liam Hodgson, a Toronto hote- lier for million by John Bassett Sr. The sale came after some owners sought to have Bassett removed from the league because his son was trying to bring the WFL to Toronto. WILL NOT BE EASY Selling the Alouettes will not be easy. Last season they averaged only for seven dates. Berger is reported to have lost close to million since-he took over the club. "There is a big resentment against the Berger said. ''People don't want things foisted on them. "The great preponderance of people of Montreal.. think that the government has no business interfering in their tastes with respect to football or any other sport in general and that they wish to see in Montreal the best in any sport and that this can be furnished by either a WFL or an NFL team." Berger was upset during the weekend by a report that Johnny Rodgers, the Alouettes' prize rookie catch last season from U.S. college football, had been offered a million deal by Portland Storm of the WFL. The Storm denied the report Monday. Berger noted the Alouettes had done several things recently to improve their im- age. They have a new logo, new colors and were set to embark on an expansive advertising campaign. Berger said he was looking forward to becoming a tenant in the stadium that is under construction for the 1976 Summer Olympic Games but the legislation "destroys all the good work and planning that has gone into our operation these past few months." SAYS BERGER AGREED Mr. Lalonde said in an inter- view that Berger had supported the legislation after a discussion in Ottawa. "Funny that Mr. Berger is now blaming our legislation for his predicament when he's been losing since he bought the minister said. "The league supports it, the players' association supports it and the mayors of six except Montreal, Toronto and Vancou- it." Jim Hole, president of CKL and of Edmonton Eskimos, said the league grant Berger's wish and hold a special meeting, probably before the league's semi- annual meeting May 28-31. Eskimos sign John Lagrone EDMONTON (CP) Edmonton Eskimos of the Western Football Conference today announced the signing of 29-year-old John Lagrone to a 1974 contract. The defensive tackle, who stands five feet 11 inches and weighs 235 pounds, returns for his eighth year with the Eskimo defence. Drafted by the New York Giants in 1967. Lagrone chose to play in the Canadian Football League and signed with the Eskimos. Most valuable Kareem Abdul-Jabbar was named the most val- uable player in the National Basketball League. Jabbar has led the Milwaukee Bucks into the NBA finals with Boston Celtics. Graduation Specia!
