Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - August 15, 1970, Lethbridge, Alberta Says: Golf's Million Dollar Wlnntr WATCH FOR THE DIVOT On every full fairway shot, a divot of some de- scription should be taken in front of the ball's orig- inal position. When this happens, the ball lias good backspin. And this bkck- spin keeps it airborne and straight. Now, how do you ac- complish this? Here's one. way that will help you bring the clubhead into the ball at a slightly down- ward angle. Before turning your head to follow the ball after impact, watch for the divot hole to ap- pear. If it doesn't, prac- tise until it does. Soon you'll Start taking the divot and stay down on the shot as well. fc 6 mO Km. V. South Golfers Lead The Way OTTAWA (CP) A horde of southern golfers stand poised and ready to claim the spoils at the Canadian amateur golf championship today. The American invaders broke down the Ottawa Hunt and Golf Club defences Friday and over- ran most of the Canadian oppo- sition in the tournament's third round. Allen Miller of Pensacola, Fla., led the onslaught with a five-under-par 68 and the lead- ing 207 score after 54 holes. Right behind the 22-year-old University of Georgia student was Bill Kratzert, 18, of Fort Wayne, Ind., who came in three strokes off the pace at 210. Miller said he would be out to shot a 69 today and try to get "a few birdies." The compact business student who has won four tournaments since March said "I've never played better than this sum- mer; this tournament is good because the tempo of play is fast, which i like." "I got to feeling like I could make every putt I hit, espe- cially the he grinned after knocking a stroke off par on five holes and never going over on the course. Don Klenk, 22, of Medinah, HI., was 71 Friday for a steady three rounds that put him at 21i and third among the .66 players who survived Thursday's cut, when 101 players were dropped for the final two rounds.

Pirates Add To Leading Margin, Athletics Within Four Games By THE ASSOCIATED PRESS Chuck Dobson didn't want to leave but when he heard it was the Mudcat coming to the res- cue, the sizzling Oakland Athlet- ics righthander quietly sat down to watch and enjoy his eighth consecutive triumph. Dobson is Che pitching ring- leader o f Uie A's, who have won six of seven and made the Baltimore Orioles their latest victims Friday night with a 4-0 victory, pushing Oakland to within four games of slumping Minnesota Twins hi the West. The 6-foot-4, 200-pound Dob- son, now 15-10, after reeling off his eighth straight, blanked the Eastern leaders for 7 1-3 innings before the Orioles touched him for their fourth hit. A walk brought on Jim "Mudcat" Grant, who gained his 21st save of the year by shutting off the Orioles the rest of the way. Dobson ran his scoreless streak to 20 1-3 innings and has given up only one run in his last 35 innings. Bert Campancris and Rick Monday took care of the A's of- fense. Campaneris singled three times, scored twice and drove in a run while Monday cracked a sacrifice fly and a solo homer. In other League action, Bos- ton Red S'ox routed Minnesota 8-1, sending the Twins to their seventh loss in succession; Cali- fornia Angels belted Detroit Ti- gers 7-3; the Ndw York Yankees edged Kansas City Hoyals 3-2 in 10 innings; Washington Senators nipped Chicago White Sox 6-5 in gOUTH ALBERTAS are really taking to Chain Lakes! During the past year the four-year-old water im- poundment was visited by people. There were tents and trailers. These figures are by actual count by govern- ment personnel and they don't include those who visit- ed the lake during the off-season. What's made Chain Lakes so famous? Rainbow trout. Chain Lakes, located some 30 miles west _.of Stavely and Nanton along the Lundbreck-Longview road, was built by the PFRA as a water storage project. Cited as one of the best of its kind in Canada, it's about six miles long, less than hall a mile wide in most places and covers about acres. It's main purpose is to bolster water supplies along Stimson, Willow and Mosquito Creeks. It also helps with flood control. Its unique feature is that water from the impoundment can be diverted to the northeast and southeast. AT THE SOUTH END the dam is across the north fork of Willow Creek. It is 47 feet high and about feet long. The Stimson Creek dam at the north end is 40 feet high and about feet long. From the outset biologists said the impoundment had excellent characteristics for a trout fishery, and so it has. It has been repeatedly heavily stocked with rainbows ever since it was built. Even in the winter time there have been as many as anglers on the lake at one time, with large representation from Calgary. The government has purchased 600 acres of land near the south end of the lake and the area is soon to become .a full-Hedged provincial park. A master plan has been drawn up by the parks branch; Phase 1, calls for a three- section campground with space for 41 units in the first, 47 in the second and 54 in the third. A large picnic shelter is in the making for each sec- tion of campground. A natural gas pipeline runs through the property. It's proposed that each shelter will have four large gas-fired stoves for picknickers. Five water wells have been drilled. A warden's residence is being built. Boat launching facilities are also planned. Another parking lot is to be built south of the dam for people who want to walk in. And there's a rumor mat the road from Highway 2, into Chain Lakes may be paved. IT'S HAPPENED at Little Bow Park. The 13 miles of road from Champion into Little Bow is now all paved. And there's more in the way of master planning for Little Bow as well. Even though it isn't a trout fishery, Little Bow is also very popular. As many as 150 boats have shown up at the park on a weekend. Travers Reservoir, which is the reason why Little Bow Park came into existence, has pike and walleye in it. Some kokanee were stocked in it earlier this summer. Water skiing is probably the most popular sport at Little Bow. AND MORE NICE THINGS. Equipment was moved into the Police Lake area last week. Access is to be improved and ground cleared for parking. The government has pur- chased three quarter sections of land, about 400 acres of which will be used for campgrounds. A boat launch with a sea wall pier is to be built. Water wells are to be drilled. The original site of Police Post has been located and a cairn is to be erected. This Saturday will see the official opening of TTUibrook Provincial Park on Lake Newell near Brooks. The road into the park from the Trans-Canada Highway is being paved this year. AND, ASKING -MORE questions about the future of ex- ploration rights in Cypress Hills Provincial Park, we learn- ed that a well was drilled in Writing on Stone Provincial Park three years ago. It was a dud and had to be aban- doned. But, there was one "H" of a mess left behind. Park authorities were finally able to get the company to clean up. AND, NOW, to the rescue of the Southern Alberta Area Council of the Junior Forest Wardens and Forest Guards. The wardens and the guards have been selling tickets on a half beef, one hog and a grocery hamper. The draw was to have held earlier, hut some of the youngsters went away on holidays with ticket stubs not turned in. The council says it regrets the delay, but a draw will be held at Pincher Creek on Sept. 1. HEINITZ PRINTERS STATIONERS LTD. 324 9th St. S.

Chuvalo, 32, here to take on Mike Bruce of Springfield, Mass., today, blamed her pres- ence for his defeat by George Foreman in New York's Madi- son Square Garden Aug. 4. That fight was stopped in the third round and awarded to Foreman after he pummelled the Canadian fighter at will. He said in an interview his srife was responsible for his de- feat when she shouted for the match to be stopped while he was still able to continue. Chu- valo said he received only a minor cut, but the bleeding con- fused her. He added he would like another crack at Foreman. Meanwhile, the seventh- ranked heavyweight, of Yugos- lavian descent, continued his unusual training routine which includes chopping wood. 10, and Milwaukee Brewers topped Cleveland Indians 4-3 in 11 innings. Ray Gulp spiui a clutch nine- hitter, for his 13th victory as the Red Sox ripped the Twins. Meanwhile Steve Blass, mak- ing his first start in a month, threw six scorless innings as Pittsburgh Pirates nipped San Diego Padres 2-1 in Friday night's doubleheuder opener to end a three-game losing string. Then Luke Walker, who has given the Pirates' troubled pitching staff a big lift since being called out of the bullpen last month, completed a sweep of the National League twinigh- ter by taming the Padres 10-1 with a six-hitter. After Blass, who has been with a badly bruised right elbow, teamed up with re- liever Orlando Pena on a four- hitler, Walker sent the league's East Division leaders three games up on the runner-up New York Mets with his fifth consec- utive victory. The Mets divided a twin bill with Atlanta Braves, winning the nightcap 4-2 after a 10-2 first-game loss, and dropped an- other length off the Pirates' pace. Elsewhere, St. Louis Car- dinals edged San Francisco Giants 2-1 in 13 innings before bowing 54 to the Giants in 10; Philadelphia Phillies shaded Cincinnati Reds 5-4; Los Ange- lees Dodgers slugged the Chi- cago Cubs 13-9, and Montreal Expos drubbed Houston Astros 10-2. ISSUES TWO HITS Blass checked the Padres on two hits but was locked in a scoreless deadlock with left-han- der Dave Roberts when he was lifted for a pinch-hitter in the sixth. Roberto Clemente's 13th homer, Jerry May's triple, a walk and a run-producing dou- ble play grounder gave the Pir- ates a 2-0 lead in the seventh. Pena shrugged off a San Diego run in the eighth to gain his sec- ond victory without a loss. In the nightcap, Walker struck out nine on the way to his loth in 13 decisions and doubled his season hit total with a pair of singles good for three RBI. The Mets salvaged a split at Atlanta when Duffy Dyer hit a bases-empty homer and Wayne Garrett poled a three-run blast in the seventh inning, erasing a 2-0 deficit.
