Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - August 13, 1974, Lethbridge, Alberta LETHBRIDGE Tuesday, August KAMPAI FIRST FARMERS RANCHERS TOUR OF THE ORIENT 3 WEEKS OUT OF VANCOUVER JAN. 12 ART WILLIAMS TRAVEL CENTRE VILLAGE MALL PHONE 328-3201 Pat Sullivan Bobby Hull had his picture taken more times Monday after- noon at the Taber Civic Centre than I have in my infamous lifetime Whoever handed out patience, making it a virtue passed over the head of Robert Marvin Hull more than once The words no I'm sorry or some other time were unheard of Monday as Bobby Hull, the most electrifying left-winger in professional hockey history, paid the Golden Sun Hockey Club s hockey school a visit Bobby's been here since said chief instructor Gary Hull "and he s been just great As his brother Gary can be prejudiced, but he was simply stating a fact, backed up by team president Pat Shimbashi Bobbv s been just said Shimbashi But then a lot of things Bobby Hull has done have been un- believable The man who scored 50 goals or more in four different seasons with the Chicago Black Hawks of the National Hockey League also got the World Hockey Association off the ground But Hull has less time for himself than he does others It's not because he has heard the stones so many times No, I feel it s because he appreciates other people and their achievements When asked about the defection of Vaclov Nedomansky from Czechoslovakia to the Toronto Toros of the WHA, Hull said it was a credit to the young man as well as to Canadian hockey to have this man leave his country to want to play in Canada We have four Swedish players on our team this says Hull and they want to play hockey They say so in their contracts It burns Hull to see Canadian players step aside their own national game to let players from European countries make the monev Canadian players could be making But they are dedicated, according to Hull, and it may serve as a good example to young Canadian players Hull believes all the teams in the WHA have improved over last year I think the whole league is 100 per cent he says without hesitation Hull saw Gordie Howe at his best and m his so-called declin- ing vears with Detroit Red Wings Was Howe that good in the WHA last year or was it just because the calibre of the league was inferior'" Howe played like a young Hull said "He played better last year than he did m his last two or three years in Detroit What brought about the change' Was it playing with his two sons9 Hull savs Howe was finally appreciated Houston Aeros gave him a new lease on life and he responded greatly Are Howe s two sons playing on dad's past9 Not at all Hull will assure you They earned their keep, in particular Mark onl> regret Monday was not having enough time to spend with Hull all any professional athlete who shows up at setting to model Janzen swim outfits in a Munsmgwear tee-shirt can't be all bad I had to borrow a Jan2en sweater from Paul laughs Hull when relating the story No I would have liked more of his time But I'm over the hill Hull will sit and answer my questions, joke with me and even let out a secret or two His time however belongs to his family and the young fellows in your family and mine That was one of the secrets he told me Miners host tape deck The 1974 Alberta senior A men's fastball champion Lethbndge Miners will be in action twice at Dave Elton Park Wednesday night Miners who captured the coveted title over the weekend, plan to host the Calgary Tape Deck for a pair of Calgary Major Men's Fast- ball League games The first game of the scheduled doubleheader is set for a 7 45 p m start while the second will follow immediate- ly after Meanwhile the Miners will head to the west coast next week to compete in the national senior A men's fast- ball championships The national finals which will feature the top teams in Canada get underway Aug 23 in Victoria, B C The Miners are currently short of funds and all donations will be gladly accepted Donations can be sent to Miners' manager Tom MacLean CASH FOR YOUR CAR Dunlop Ford will pay you cash for your car if it is one of the select units we require immediately CONTACTTHE USED CAR BUYER NOW AT DUNLOP FORD The Herald Sports Lori Parsons poses with painting of her Arabian Dheilan. Miss Parsons and her horse received the Legion of Merit award recently. Lori Parsons earns Legion of Merit Tears now seem worthwhile By CLARKE HUNTER Herald Sports Writer Two years of tears at every one of 17 Arabian Horse Shows came to a rewarding conclusion for Lori Par- sons last June when her prize-winning horse Dheilan earned the prestigious International Arabian Horse Association Legion of Merit Award No this is not a tale of a persistent loser who finally made good It's just that Lori, a Lethbndge gal who will be 21 years old in September, is allergic to horses She builds up a resistance to her own animals, but at shows where there are a lot of other horses around, she ends up sneezing and wandering about with watering eyes I must be a terrible she admits But it all became worth while for Lori, a horse-lover since the age of three, when Dheilan won several events at the Aurora Horse Show in Edmonton June 14- 16 and boosted his cumulative IAHA points total to 83 The Legion of Merit Award, the highest honor to which one can aspire in the Arabian horse field, re- quires that a horse compile 75 competition points Of course there are numerous rules and regulations about how the horse must go about that, one of them being that the rider must apply to the association before the points begin to add up As of July only 564 of these awards have been given out in North America, and as far as Lori knows, hers is the first to be earned in Southern Alberta 'There may be others in the area who own horses that have gotten the she says "But I think I'm the first one to earn it myselt Lori applied for the Legion of Merit in the fall of 1972 but had only six points in its direction going into the 1973 season So it has really been just the last two years that have been important in getting the honor She got her start in horses at the age of three when her parents plopped her on one of the midway ponies at Lethbndge's Whoop-Up Days There has been no turn- ing back since She rented a horse for a few years, and had her own for the first time at the age of 12 Working as a trail guide at Waterton only increased her appetite for riding, and soon she went into training and competing with her own horses Dheilan, who now has a mark after his name to signify his Merit award, was bred by Dr H N Jen- nings of Calgary, and Lori got hold of him as a three- year-old stallion in 1968 He is a purebred Arabian and was gelded as a seven-year-old There are a number of ways to score points towards the award Firstly, however, the show must be approv- ed as a Class A competition by the IAHA and either the Canadian or American Horse Show Association Then the number of points one can earn by placing in an event depends on the number of entries in the class Aside from points for placing in show events a national championship is worth 30 points with a reserve counting for 15 Placing in the top ten national- ly can earn you six point'; Dheilan got six points for finishing in the top ten in the Canadian National Halter Class in 1973, with the rest of his points coming from ordinary shows, all of them in Alberta Lori and Dheilan racked up four championships, two reserves and five firsts in halter competitions during the past two years, and three championships, three reserves and 11 firsts in performance events Performance competitions include Arabian Native Costume Western and English Pleasure, and Park Horse With the highest award already under her belt what is left for Lori'' "Well, I could go for another Legion of Merit with another horse, but I really want to try to win a national championship with Dheilan 'He came so close in 1973 that I just have to try again she adds Lori then explains that although the Legion of Merit is the highest award given out, most people would value a national championship more highly Although you can get points for your Merit award by winning a national championship, they are really two different things It's pretty difficult to compare the two So the future appears to hold a lot more in the way of horses for Lori Parsons Aside from her immediate goals in competition, she hopes to seriously get into the training and teaching aspects of the sport A stable of her own may seem a little far-fetched right now, but at the age of 21, she has lots of time Players feel they have lost CORNER 16 AVE. and M.M. DRIVE SOUTH ASSOCIATED PRESS "It was a long drawn-out said Buffalo Bills' guard Reggie McKenzie, "and our side lost That was one reaction Mon- day as National Football League players drifted into training camps under provisions of a 14-day cooling off period decided on by the NFL Players' Association.
