Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - August 19, 1970, Lethbridge, Alberta 10 THt LETHBRIDGE HERALD Wednesday, August 19, 1970 Possible Trial NEW YORK (AP) A United States judge left the door open Tuesday for a possible trial to decide if Cassius Clay has the right to fight in New York state. Judge Marvin E. Frankel lis- tened to Clay's lawyers, who argued that scores of boxers have had criminal records that die! not prevent their licenced boxing. Then Frankel denied a motion by the state's lawyers to dis- miss a Clay complaint that the New York "State Athletic Com- mission let others box in. similar circumstances. Frankel, when asked about a Caiiadiens Sign Myre MONTREAL (CP) Goalie Phil Myre signed his 1970-71 contract Monday with Montreal C a n a d i e n s of the National Hockey League. Myre, a 22-year-old Montreal native, started last season with Montreal Voyageurs, the Cana- diens' farm club in the Ameri- can Hockey League, and was promoted to the parent team early in the season. He finished the season with a 2.15 goals-against average in 10 games with the Canadiens. trial by state lawyer Charles A. LaTorella Jr. at the end of Tuesday's hearing, replied: "I only denied the motion." Frankel had dismissed the original complaint of Clay, also known as Muhammad Ali, last Dec. 24. DENIED RIGHTS Clay's claim is that the state athletic commission has denied Ins constitutional rights by not allowing a licence to fight. The former heavyweight champion is free on bail, appealing a five-year prison sentence and line im- posed in Texas April 23, 1967, for having refused induction into the U.S. armed forces. The conviction was recently upheld by the U.S. Appeals Court for the fifth circuit in New Orleans. Clay has announced his inten- tion to challenge Joe Frazier, tiie current heavyweight cham- pion. They have been turned down in several states. Clay's lawyers, at the hearing Tuesday, said a study of stale commission files showed that 94 boxers were licenced or re-lic- enced since 1933 after felony convictions ranging to man- slaughter and murder; 133 after being found guilty of misde- meanors. In reply, state lawyers as- serted that Clay was "not only convicted of a felony, but had yet to serve his five-year sent- ence." Locals Eliminate Trail Club Jarvie Shines For Norcrest THUNDER BAY (Special) It was a case of late inning heroics at the Canadian Little League championships Tues- day evening. Lelhbridge Norcrest All SVars remained alive and Val- leyficld, Que. captured the "A" division title and both used late inning efforts to turn the respective trieks. It was a cliff hanger for Norcrest coaches Jim Szucs and John Koskoski but the final result made it all worth- while. Norcrcst, after a first loss to Windsor, Ont, faced elimina- tion Tuesday when they took to the field against Trail, B.C., who also needed a victory to stay alive in the Canadian final. Scott Jarvie performed most of the heroics for Norcrest as they edged Trail 2 1 in nine innings, three over Little Leagun regulation, ans sent the B.C. representatives packing. In the other game ValleyfieM scored twice in an extra inning and dropped Windsor 6-4. Jarvie and Trail hurler Steve Tambellini were locked in a tight pitchers duel heading into the ninth inning. Trail scored in the lop of the ninth inning without the help of a hit. Two walks and a throwing error put Norcrest down 1-0 heading into the bot- tom of the ninth inning.

He would particularly like to see the Grade 10 students at the outing. The Rams' first game will be against the LCI Grads Septem- ber 11. George Santoni allowed only four hits off his fastball to pick up the win over Keii Fergeson who chucked for the Generals. Santoni also connected for a double while Laurie Grimson chipped in with two singles. Harry Malchow aided with a triple. For the Generals four hitters managed a single apiece. In the second game Tom Yip allowed only two hits off him to pick up file win for the Labor Club. Bob Sapsford suffered the loss. Both Harry Nagata and Ed- ward Carpenter poked out two for the winners. Action will resume tonight when the Marquis Hotel will tangle with 'the Nu-Mode Homes at 7 p.m. and the Con- tractors will meet the HCMP at Both games will be played at the Dave Elton Fastball Park. Gordon Keith led things off for Norcrest and was safe on an error. Greg Kveder follow- ed with a single and Norcrest had runners on first and sec- ond with no one out. David Koskoski then laid down a drag bunt along the first baseline which coach Szucs described as "just a beautiful bunt" ad- vancing Keith to third and Kveder to second on the sncr- fice. Brian Robinson, who had two singles earlier in the game, then drilled a hard smash at shortstop which went through into left field scoring Keith. An error was charged to the shortstop but Szucs said the ball was just too hot too handle and should have been a hit. With the count 2-1 Jarvie, the young-hurler, belted the ball up Jie middle off of relief pitcher Rino Tozzoeon scoring Kveder with the winning run. The players swarmed all over young Jarvie. The hard throwing left-hander struck out 13 while allowing six hits to gain the win. Tambellini 18 in an outstanding performance. According to coach Szucs 'Robinson is fit and we'll start lim tonight against Windsor, "t was Windsor who stopped Norcrest 4-0 in the opening ;ame. In the Valleyfield Windsor ;ame the Quebec club took ad- vantage of a seventh inning Vindsor error to score twice and relegate Ontario to the "B" section final against Nor- crest. 'The big hitters for Valley- filed were Daniel Maheii with a basses loaded triple in the first inning and three singles singles by Brian McDonald. Norcrest, from the Norcrest Little League association in Lethbridge, earned the right to a berth in the Canadian cham- pionships by edging past Moose Jaw 3 2 in the zone final. Norcrest emerged with the spoils in a round-robin, double- knockout tourney with Mosse Jaw, Calgary and Edmonton. In winning their zone the Norcrest lads caught the fancy of Lethbridge baseball fans and one in particular. The cartoon accompanying today's story was drawn by Debbie Kanigan of 2505 15th Street South. The cartoon shows in a nut- shell that Lethbridge edged Mosse Jaw 3-2 with Brian Robinson the hero. The Leth- widge coach is all smiles while 3is Mcose Jaw coach is not very happy. In the top right land corner the plane that car- ried Norcrest to Thunder Bay is shown. Golf's Million Dollar Winner WET WEATHER GOLF It's no fun playing in wet weather, but every golfer inevitably gets caught in the rain once in a while. When ithappens, make the best of it. Under these condi- tions, you should do your best to keep your club grips dry. See that your bag is covered. .In general, you must be bolder in wet weather. Play for a minimal roll on every shot from drive on putt; go for the pin oft approaches and the cup on putts. Play for the high shot to get maximum distance. Position the ball forward in your stance on all full shots, and try to clip it off the turf without tak- ing much of a divot. "Fat" shots, when the clubhcad contacts turf be- fore the ball, are absolute- ly fatal in wet weather. "70 HATI. Htm. Jfjfl.

"We haven't been hitting the ball at all lately, but we've won our last four." It was also Baltimore's sev- enth triumph in their last nine starts. However, what Weaver says might be true. The hard- hitting birds only stroked three hits off Brewer's loser Marty Pattin. But one of them was Merv Buttenmund's 15th homer of the season, a solo clout in the fourth inning. The centre fielder also saved H a r d i n's shutout with two catches in the fourth, grabbing a sinking drive by Mike Walton and going to the fence for Mike Hegan's belt.
