Lethbridge Herald (Newspaper) - August 6, 1974, Lethbridge, Alberta 8-THE LETHBRIDGE HERALD-Tuesday, August 6,1974 FarniGrs and Ranchers European Tour Depart Calgary Oct. 28, 1974 Return Nov. 22, 1974. Priced $1490.00 per person double occupancy. Airfare, Accommodation, Meals, Many Extras. For Information and booking details contact: ART WILLIAMS TRAVEL CENTRE VILLAGE MALL PHONE 328-3201 Placid confident LAKE PLACID, N. Y. (AP) - Civic leaders in this Adirondack Mountains resort village say tliey are confident of getting tile 1980 Winter Olympics now that Lake Placid is the only bidder left for the games. The village. 100 miles south ol Montreal, played host to the 19,32 winter games and made an unsuccessful bid for the 1976 games. Then British Columbia withdrew support for the only other bidder for the 1980 event, Vancouver - Garibaldi. "We were prepared for a real race with Vancouver," said Art Devlin of Lake Placid, but "we felt we were the front-runners all along." The International Olympic Committee (IOC) is to make its decision in late October in Vienna. COULD CANCEL It could re-open the bids or even cancel the games if it felt no area had the necessary financial muscle to stage the games, said Norman Hess, vice-chairman oF the Lake Placid Olympic Organizing ("ommittee. But Hess said those two options are ""very, very unlikely." 'Our major problem is Four teams interested in Robinson CHICAGO (AP) -California Angel hopes of trading Frank Robinson were blocked Monday when more than one team claimed the 38-year-old designated hitter when he was put on waivers. Robinson was reported to be headed for Boston Red Sox if he made it through necessary waivers. But under the rules other American League baseball teams. New York, Baltimore and Cleveland, might also claim the Angel team captain and leader. The agreement, with Boston was reported to be for Tommy Harper, but there also were reports that California was willing to give up Robinson, and his $172,000 - a - year contract, for two young promising players. Robinson's pact gives him approval over any trade. It was understood he would allow a deal sending him to a pennant contender that would guarantee him a (�on tract for one more season. Robinson, unavailable lor comment Monday, has won Most Valuable Player honors in both the National and American Leagues. He is 131 hits away from the 3,000 career mark, which he has said he wants to achieve as his final major league goal. getting assurance of federal support and funding," he said. "That's the only problem we have." Hess said the village needs between $16 million and $20 million from the federal government.- The games could be made 'totally self-supporting if congress authorized the sale of commemorative Olympic coins, he said. He noted that Lake Placid must "overcome the shadow cast by Denver's withdrawal." CUT OFF FUNDS Denver was awarded the 1976 Winter Olympics but then withdrew after Colorado voters decided in a referendum to cut off any further funding for the gahies. Environmental considerations played a large role in the anti-Olympics vote. "There's no threat to our ecology. Everything that's had to be cut has been cut," Devlin said. Last October, the town of North Elba, which includes Lake Placid, voted by a 2-to-l margin in favor of funding the Olympic organizing committee. The vote answered the IOC's request to "show us that your people are in favor of this," Hess said. The area boasts such state-or town-owned attractions as Whiteface Mountain for Alpine skiing, Mount 'Van Hoevenberg for bobsledding and an ice arena for skating. But to play host to the games. Lake Placid needs a 80-metre ski jump, refrigeration of its 400-metre speed-skating oval and a larger seating capacity for its ice arena, among other things, Hess said. State-owned facilities could be improved through normal annual expenditures in the state budget, he said. Devlin cited a letter, dated Aug. 1, from Gov. Malcolm Wilson to IOC members in which Wilson said the state "stands ready to lend its assistance to insure the success" of the 1980 games if they are awarded to Lake Placid. Haynie wins golf tourney HORSHAM, Pa. (AP) -Sandra Haynie shot an even-par 73 Sunday to capture the $5,700 first prize with a three-day total of 213 in the George Washington tournament of the Ladies' Professional Golfers' Association. It was the fourth tour victory this year for the 31-year-old Texan and boosted her earnings to $56,710. She has also won the United States Open, the LPGA and Medina County Open this year. Finishing five strokes behind the leader and tied for second place were Kathy Ahem, Kathy Whitworth and Jo Ann Carter. Miss Haynie, who now has attained a career total of 33 tournament victories, conquered high winds and a heavy downpour on the 17th hole to finish her three rounds with a six-under-par 71-69-73-213. The Herald Sports Dressing room ? Barrhead pitcher Gavin Long uses the pitcher's mound for a dressing room Sunday afternoon. Lakers, Cardinals split, locals rallied Sunday By PAT SULLIVAN Herald Sports Editor You can't expect to win if you don't play good baseball. That's not a quote from anyone, it's just plain logic. And it was plain logic that accounted for a weekend split of games for the Lethbridge Lakers and Barrhead Cardinals in Alberta Major Baseball League action. Saturday night the Lakers fumbled their way through four listed errors and wound up on the short end of an 8-2 score. Sunday, it was Barrhead's turn to wear the gloves on the wrong hand as the Lakers, with the help of a couple of timely hits, slipped past their guests 10-9. After being belted 8-2 Saturday the Lakers looked as though they would face the same fate Sunday afternoon as they trailed 7-2 before they came to bat in the bottom of the seventh. With 400 fans and a tiring Terry Hendley on the mound for Barrhead, the Lakers chalked up six runs in the seventh and were worthy of therh all. They may not have been all earned but, the Lakers put together their best inning of the season. Gary Picone walked as did Kent Peterson. Rob Roy singled and the fun began. With the bases loaded, and Laker starting pitcher Les Ohrn in the shower thinking he had pitched better than the 7-2 deficit would allow him, Tim Negrello lofted a high fly ball to centre which the Barrhead fielder lost in the sun. "That's the break we needed," said playing coach Paul Sullivan. He was almost entirely right. After Negrello's single, which brought the score to 7-3, Jim Dompier slapped a single to score Peterson and make it 7-4. Bob Turner was the first Laker out in the seventh, but Ken Nakama, hitting for catcher Neil Bozak walked making 7-5. Gavin Long relieved starter, and loser, Terry Hendley and was greeted by a single off the bat of Sullivan. With the score 7-6 Bob Brown hit a line shot to short forcing Sullivan. But shortstop Dave Robb threw the ball away allowing two more Laker runs before Gary Picone missed a third strike. Dompier, who went three-for-three in the game, settled the issue in the eighth with a towering 415' home run which chased Negrello home ahead of him. Barrhead, who had jumped on starter Ohrn for four runs in the first inning, made it close with two in the ninth before Brian Hamagami shut the door. Negrello aided Dompier's efforts with a triple, double and single while Sullivan managed three singles in three trips. Jim McDonald went to the plate four times for Barrhead and had four hits, one a double, while Del Shaffrick had three singles. Sullivan was the loser Saturday night as his mates booted the ball four times making it easier for lefthander Keith Van De Keere. Robb paced the Barrhead attack with four singles in as many trips to the plate. Bruce Stienbring added a double and single. For the Lakers Kent Peterson shook loose his no-power tag as he made no mistake in clearing the left-field wall after an earlier single. Rob Roy and Negrello added two singles each for the Lakers. Lakers are home, possibly for the last time this year, this evening when they host Calgary Giants at eight o'clock at Henderson Park. John Turiff, hit by a pitch with the bases loaded in the ninth inning, forced across the winning run to give the Edmonton Tigers a 4-3 edge over the Calgary Jimmies Sunday. Dave Dumbeck was the winning pitcher and John Fitzgerald the loser. Calgary Jimmies, behind the five-hit pitching of Brian Kingman, pounded the Edmonton Tigers 10-1 Saturday. Kingman was the winning pitcher, going the distance and striking out 15. Dennis ' Lopez was the loser, giving way to Doug Homme in the sixth. John Osborne and Don Pasutto combined to pitch a four-hitter as Red Deer Generals nipped Edmonton Blockers 1-0 Saturday. Blockers played the game under protest from the second inning on, claiming Red Deer had not indicated 48 hours prior to the game which four American imports they would be using. LETHBRIDGE OFFICE FURNITURE LTQ. Lowar Ltv*l 7lh Slraal Shopping Mill Lathbriilga,Albirta Phone (403) 328-7411 S.C.M. TYPEWRITERS Sansei tops in Alberta Lethbridge Sansei had to come from behind for a 10-9 extra - inning victory in the first game of the Alberta Bantam Provincial Baseball Championships, but it was clear sailing the rest of the way as the locals won their other three games handily to take the Alberta title. Sansei downed teams from Indus, Grande Prairie, Provost, and Edmonton to take the championship and will now advance to the Western Canada Bantam playoffs to be held in Winnipeg August 15, 16 and 17. Three Sansei runs in the bottom of the seventh inning tied the first game against Indus at 9-9 and sent the opener into extra innings. Harvie Pocza's single drove in Tim Katakami for the winning run in the eighth inning to send the locals on their way. Dick Stephure, the third Sansei pitcher in the game, picked up the victory. Rick Wentz and Glen Aman each belted home runs for the locals. Harvie Pocza was a one -. man gang in the second game, ripping three home runs, a triple and a double to lead the locals to an 18-8 triumph over Grande Prairie. Stephure got relief help from George Hiraga in picking up his second tournament victory on the mound. Glen Aman and Craig Washington could be traded SAN JOSE, Calif. (AP) -The News says Vic Washington, former Canadian Football League star, has been put up for trade by San Francisco *49ers after an argument with head coach Dick Nolan. Washington, who was switched last week to defensive free safety after three seasons as a starting running back with the '49ers, argued Sunday night with Nolan at the National Football League club's training camp, the newspaper says. It reports Washington missed a team meeting later Sunday night and practice Monday morning, and that Nolan talked with Washington after Monday morning's workout and then sent him home to San Francisco. "I told him we'll make an attempt to trade him," Nolan was quoted as saying. "He missed meetings, meals and practices and I can't run a team with someone around who pulls that stuff." Nolan said Washington approached him in the dining hall Sunday night and protested the '49ers travel changes into San Diego Saturday night to avoid confrontation with striking football players before an exhibition game there. Washington was San Francisco's fourth-round draft choice in 1970. He came to the '49ers in 1971 from British Columbia Lions of the CFL. He previously played for Ottawa Rough Riders as both an offensive and defensive back. Robinson aided the local cause at the plate with four singles each. Provost took an early 6-0 lead in the next game, but Sansei came back to score seven runs in the third inning, and reliever Glen Aman held Provost scoreless the rest of the way to pick up the victory. Rick Wentz blasted a home run and a pair of singles for the locals while Harvie Pocza had a home run. In the final game. Rick Wentz's bases - loadedtriple in the sixth inning broke open a 5-5 deadlock and pushed the locals to a 10-5 victory over Edmonton. Harvie Pocza fanned 11 Edmonton batters and scattered just three hits for the victory. ELRICH TIRE SPORT SCORES 1 ALBERTA MAJOR NORTH W L Pel. GBL Red Deer....... 15 10 .600 - Edm.

The Taber boys took a 2-0 lead in the best - of - five Southern Alberta playoffs over the weekend when they clobbered the Calgary Irish 24-6 and 28-9 at the Adams Arena. In the first game Saturday evening, Wayne Olsen gave the Irish a 1-0 lead early in the first period, but that was the last time the Calgary team was to have the upper hand all weekend. The Ebony Hawks came back with six first - period goals to lead 6-1 at the end of the first frame. They pushed the margin to 11-4 at the end of the second period and out-scored the Irish 13-2 in the final 20 minutes. Ken Boychuk led the Taber assault with five goals and four assists while Roger McAdam flashed the red light, four times and assisted on five others. Captain Ken Gregus had a pair of goals and four assists. Wayne Olsen and Barry Jordan had a pair of goals each for Calgary as the Irish had a tough time getting anything past Taber goalie Ted Stokes. Taber led only 4-3 midway through the first period on Sunday but suddenly all the action switched to one end of the arena. The Hawks, led again by Boychuk and McAdam, scored ten straight goals and took a 15-4 lead into the dressing room at period's end. Boychuk and McAdam counted five goals each in the game, while Eugene Yamada, Doug Nakama, Alvaro Zanoili and Ken Hammerstedt added three goals each for the Ebony Hawks. The two teams took 21 penalties in the contest, including nine majors and misconducts. Calgary took seven of the major penalties, including four game misconducts. The series will continue next weekend in Calgary, with the winner to meet the northern Alberta champ in the Alberta senior finals. The Labor Club Lancers built up some momentum for their upcoming Intermediate Lacrosse playoffs when they whipped West Edmonton 11-6 and 8-5 in two games at Adams Arena over the weekend. Dave Jackson led the locals with 5 goals in the Saturday game, which wound up the league schedule for the locals. Doug Stephens and Dave Sazalski added a pair each while singles came off the sticks of Len Jarvie and Hank Heerze. Mark Asbell managed two goals for Edmonton, who trailed only 7-6 after two periods, but fell apart in the final frame. In Sunday's exhibition encounter, Dave Jackson, Paul Byrne, and Hank Heerze each netted a pair of goals for the locals while Dave Sazalski and Doug Stephens added singles. Mark Asbell again led the attack in a losing cause with two goals. The Lancers are now all set to take on the Bawden Braves in a two - game total point Southern Alberta playoff next weekend.
