Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - August 7, 1974, Lethbridge, Alberta 10-THE LETHBRIDGE HERALD Wednesday, August 7, 1974 Farmers and Ranchers European Tour Depart Oct 28, 1974 Return Nov 22, 1974. Priced Per pe-Wdo-jbie occupancy Airlare.

Kay Lambert, manager of the new arena, assured me last Friday that construction is right on. In fact, it may be just a lit- tle ahead of schedule. What it ail boils down to is that we will have one of the finest sports facilities in western Canada in not too long a time. spent a good part of an hour with Lambert as he showed me around. It is still hard to believe that this is ours. I keep thinking that as soon as the 1975 Canada Winter Games end next February someone will come along and move the Sportsplex to the next (lames site. It won't happen. I assure you. But after spending the last 21 z years standing at the end of Henderson Lake Ice Centre, looking through the screen the Sportsplex looks like heaven and it's not even finished. There's no question as to who will be the major tenants in the new rink, the Lethbridge Broncos of the Western Canada Hockey League. But. as Lambert pointed out. that's only tor 35 home games, workouts and playoffs. have to have other bookings to pay the bills." he said. He gave me a quick rundown on some of the features and shows that will make use of the Sportsplex. From this informa- tion one can only say that Lethbridge and Southern Alberta are in for some real treats. It will no longer be necessary to travel to Calgary for the Ice Capades. That's right. Karen Magnussen and the Ice Capades will be in Lethbridge Oct. 10-13 with as many as seven shows if need be. Although it has not be officially confirmed. Disney on Parade is expected in November. Add to this the Harlem Globetrotters. Junior B Hockey playdowns. the LDS Father and Son Dinner. Boy Scouts Ice Jamboree, figure skating carnival, the Shrine Circus, an LDS dance pageant and the Royal Lippizan Stallion horse show and see what 1 mean. There are other irons in the fire according to Lambert. "We hope to provide our patrons with the best of enter- tainment." he said. "If we get wind of something we fee! the people of Lethbridge and the south would enjoy, and can book it. we will." Joining Lambert's staff will be Ted Berlando and George Hunt. Hunt will be the foreman of the Sportsplex while Berlando handle the food concession. Good friend Berlando is an old hand at food and serving the public. 1 don't know how hockey and lasagna will blend but it should be fun finding out. The Broncos are scheduled to open their home season Oct. 6 against Regina Pats and Lambert is hopeful of a possible open house in and around this date. "We have a building we can all be very proud he stated. "So lets have everybody get a look at it." II the Broncos have their way plenty of people will see the Sportsplex. Only last Friday the Broncos could boast nearing Hie 1.000 mark in season's tickets. "And we haven't really began to sell the public." said Bill Burton majority shareholder in the club. The ball should get rolling shortly I would imagine. I spoke to Ron Lyon Tuesday and when it comes to selling hockey. Lyon is where the action is.

Little headway in NFL strike WASHINGTON" lAP) Representatives of the strik- ing National Football League players and club owners were scheduled to meet again today with federal mediator W.J. I'sery as veterans continued to trickle into various training camps in defiance of the 38- day-old strike. Usery met with the two sides Tuesday, -nd the only announced result of those meetings was that they would meet again this morning. Meanwhile, management said that as of Tuesday more than one-fourth of the NFL veterans had reported to pre- season training camps. A spokesman for the NFL Management Council put the number of defections at ,360. or 28 per cent of the total NFL work force, and said that 111 of them were starters. He said 910 veterans, about. 500 of those starters, remain out of camp. Tuesday's camp arrivals in- cluded kicker Peter Gogolak of New York Giants, defen- sive tackle Jon Kolb of Pitt- sburgh Steelers, middle linebacker Nick Buoniconti and offensive tackle Norm Evans of Miami Dolphins and guard John Niland of Dallas Cowboys. Niland said it was "God's will" that he join 19 other Dal- las veterans. wlco AUTOMOTIVE CENTRE THIS WEEK ONLY! OUR FINEST 4 PLY POLYESTER CORD TIRES! PRICES BLASTED But a group of about 30 Min- nesota Vikings' veterans, at a meeting Tuesday night, decid- ed to begin working out as a unit but reaffirmed their deci- sion not to report to camp. Cornerback Bobby Bryant, speaking for those who attend- ed the two-hour meeting which included Coach Bud Grant, said. "We'll be work- ing out daily but nobody is go- ing to camp. The main pur- pose of the meeting was to get ourselves organized." Bryant said Grant attended about one-half hour of the ses- sion, but was not involved in the discussion of the strike. He said Grant had been in- vited to hear the players' positions on the strike. E78-U Sole Price 44 No charge for -'1 LONGER MILEAGE OUTSTANDING WEAR MODERN.

Lethbridge Laker fans should know the script by heart. More times than they care to remember during a dismal 1974 Alberta Major Baseball League season, they have watched their heroes spend all night trying to overcome a big deficit resulting from one bad inning in the early going. The story was no different Tuesday night at Henderson Park as the Lakers dropped an 8-5 decision to the Calgary Giants. The Giants jumped on starting Laker pitcher Mike Buist for five hits in the first inning, and took a 5-0 lead which the Lakers' steady play in the final eight frames could not overcome. Bob Papworth's triple sparked the early outburst, and four other Giants poked singles while one Laker error aided the visitors' cause. The locals came back with a pair of runs in the bottom of the first, and Bob Turner's two-run double in the fourth narrowed the Giant lead to 6- 4. But Calgary picked up their final two runs in the fifth, one of them on a leadoff homer by Ray Forgie, and they held on for the win. The Lakers had their chances in the late going, loading the bases in the sixth, and putting runners on first and third in the seventh, but each time the Giants got the final out before any damage could be done. With runners on first and third again in the eighth inning, a line drive blast right at the second baseman gave the Giants a double play, and they got out of the inning giving up only one run. that coming on Marty Maxwell's blooping single into right field. Bob Dinges. Paul Gallivan. and Paul Chartrand each poked two singles for the Giants, whose 10-hit attack also included Forgie's home run and Papworth's triple. Kent Peterson and Rob Roy managed a pair of safeties each for the Lakers, while Bob Turner had a double. Chartrand started the game for the visitors and was credited with the victory. He got relief help from Jirn Lemon in the eighth inning. Mike Buist was tagged with the loss for Lethbridge. The Lakers will be on the road tonight then they face the Giants again in Calgary. This weekend they will be in Edmonton to take on the Blockers in a doubleheader before winding up their schedule next week with two make-up games against the Calgary Jimmies. The Lakers will be in Calgary Tuesday night, while the Jimmies will corne to Henderson Park for the final league game next Wednesday night. In Edmonton, Randy Rasmussen and Julius Owchar each had five for five performances at the plate as Tigers pounded the Blockers 16-3 in an Alberta Major Baseball League game Tuesday. Rasmussen drove in three runs with his five hits while Tim Young drove in four runs with three hits including a triple and a three-run homer. Blockers scored three runs in the top of the fourth inning to tie the game 3-3, but Tigers broke it open with two runs in the fourth, three in each of the fifth and sixth innings, and five in the eighth. Winning pitcher Dick Hazell went the first five innings before being relieved by Dennis Lopez. Tim Haufe, a pickup from the Alberta junior champion Blue Willow Angels, absorbed the loss before being replaced by Rick Jamieson in the sixth inning and Mike Bullock in the seventh. Meanwhile Red Deer Generals pounded the Calgary Jimmies pitching staff for 15 hits as they went on to post an easy 14-5 triumph Tuesday night. Eight runs in the sixth inning told the game story as the Generals received two run doubles from Bob Felts and Al McKee. The Generals went through 12 batters in that inning before the Jimmies finally retired the side. John Elick was the leader for the Jimmies, accounting for four of the Calgary runs while Russ McKee had four of the Jimmies 10 hits. Marty Coil was the winning pitcher, working seven innings. Ron Peterson, who worked five innings, was tabbed with the loss. Red Deer 100 048 15 1 Calgary 002 000 5 10 4 Coil Passutto (8) and McCook; Peterson Fitzgerald Ouellette (8) and Powers.
