Could Be Last Ashe CLEVELAND (AP) Arthur Ashe Jr., saying this may be his last Davis Cup match, was drawn against West Germany's Wilhelm Bungert in the opening singles match here today of the 1970 Challenge Round. In the second match Cliff Hi- chey, 23, of San Angelo, Tex., who has never played in a Chal- lenge Round, goes against the challengers' ace, Christian Kuhnke.

"The Romanians were un- sure of the fast service. The Germans are accustomed to it and like it. They are tough." Ashe added that he would not play in the Davis Cup next year unless it is open. "The Davis Cup without the top contract pros is a travesty and means the slen- der Negro star said. In the doubles Sunday the Americans will send their champion team, Stan Smith of Pasadena, Calif., and Bob Lutz of Los Angeles, against the i r o n -m a n Germans, Bungert and Kuhnke. The final singles Monday pit Hichey against Bun- gert in the first match with Ashe meeting Kuhnke in the other. The Germans were delighted with the draw, especially the choice of Kichey by the Ameri- cans over and harder hitting Smith in the singles. Fred Stolle, the Australian I coach of the German team, had said earlier, "If they pick Ki- chey they might as well put the Cup on a plane and send it back to Germany." "We'll see tomorrow, he said. Bungert and Kuhnke, both 31, have not played any of the Americans before. Kuhnke is a tall left-hander with a sizzling service who upset Manuel San- tana in the inter-zone final against Spain. Cars from Lethbridge, Medi- cine Hat, Brooks, Taber, Crows- nest Pass, and Cranbrook are expected to compete. Meanwhile, the battle for top spot in "B" class and V-8- Sportsman will continue this Sunday. Lindy Smith appears to have put a lock on "B" class honors. The talented driver has earned himself 124% points to date and leads second place Jack Tiffen by a wide margin. Tiffen, the early-season leader, has points- Tom Dowdell is third with 40Vz. Ron Boyce has made the biggest gain in the "B" di- vision. In just two weeks he has earned 2714 points. The battle continues hot and heavy in.V-8 Sportsman as Len Vaselenak holds a slim lead over Tom Ayerhart. Vaselenak leads with 83Vt points as com- pared to 81 for Ayerhart.

Lad Leading By Nine DARTMOUTH, N.S. (CP) Doug Roxburgh, 13, the quiet golfer from Vancou- ver, stood on the first tee as the announcer reeled off a list of feats he has accom- plished in six years on the course. He stood with a broad smile, seemingly embarrassed, a 1- though the leader after two rounds of the Canadian junior golf championship' here. He stepped to the tee, took a hearty swing and topped the ball, sending it skipping across the turf, and out only a short distance along the fairway. "Everybody has those kind of he said following his third round match Friday. "I tried to swing too hard and put the ball on the green. "I got a par that's all that counts." The smooth-swining, Univer- sity of Oregon student, hit an iron shot from the first fairway and finished the hole with a par four, en route to par 68 round. 18 HOLES LEFT The regulation count left him with a nine stroke lead with only 18 holes left in the competi- tion. Play concludes today at the Brigh'twood Golf and Country Club, and the British Columbia junior champ appears a strong favorite for the crown. Ben Parsons, the B.C. team captain, calls Roxburgh "the most consistant golfer in British Columbia barring none." And that's just what he's been here. for the Lethbridge Sugar Kings should indeed be a dandy. It was made official Friday aflcr- noon at a press conference that the S'ugar Kings will have a working agreement with the Calgary Centennials.

Lethbridge Norcrest Little League All-Stars come home from the Canadian championships, Taber an- nounces they will be the hosts of 12 exhibition hockey games from, the Western Canada Hockey League and Bobby Hull shows up at Gregg Filling's hockey school in Brooks. Like they say, there's no rest for the wicked. First of all a big tip of the hat to John Koskoski, Jim Szucs and the entire Norcrest ball club. Their efforts at the Canadian Little League championship were truly outstanding. For those of you who don't know Norcrest lost in the final to Valleyfield, Que. who are currently taking part in the World championships in Williams- port, Perm. This time three weeks ago Norcrest wasn't given much of a chance to advance past Moose Jaw in the regional final in Lethbridge. The never-say- die locals fought back from the mat more than once and indeed did our city proud. It was just a case of inexperience at the Ca- nadian finals according to the coaches. Valleyfield, the defending champions, were able to handle the pressure just one notch better than Norcrest. They had been through it all before, but Norcrest will be back. Szucs and Koskoski gave indications this past year might be their last ones at the helm of a Little League club. But now the tables have been turned, they have tasted the sweet wine of success. It just might be they'll take another whirl at the National title next year. It was like a home-coming for ex-Lethbridge Na- tive Sons at Ed Bruchet's home tlu's past Sunday. Some familiar names of former outstanding hockey players popped up during the course of the after- noon. The reason for the gathering was to officially announce that 12 Western Canada Hockey League exhibition games will be played at the Taber Civic Centre during the course of the coming season. It was also a good chance to get some of the boys together was the way Don McLean described it. On hand were Earl Ingarfield of the Oakland Seals, Vic Stasiuk of Philadelphia Flyers, Gus Adams, Ken Stewart, Eddie Dorohoy. Corky Agar, Billy Gibson, Don McLean and Tom McLean. It was like a gathering of the old'alumni in the Na- tive Sons dressing room. Bruchet, along with officials of the Town of Taber, is looking to provide the fans of the sports- minded community, with some top notch junior hockey. Following a New Year's Eve fire two years ago the people of Taber have been without hockey but such won't be the case this year. As one official put it "We've got as nice a rink and facilities as I have seen and we plan to make use of it." Could be the Town of Taber is dickering for something inviting the WCHL in for games. Could it be they want a franchise? I journeyed to Brooks Monday evening and had a great time. Gregg Pilling is running a hockey school there and so in conjunction with his school the Brooks people organized a sportsman's dinner. To say it was a success would be an understate- ment. Someone apologized for the lack of time spent in organizing the dinner but it couldn't have been better. Too often the best laid plans go astray. If the people of Brooks are planning another dinner next year I can offer only one suggestion that may be of help, shorten up on head table guests. There were 18 on hand Monday and each had to be introduced and most said a few words. Four hours, or more, of talks from athletes can be tiring but it didn't dampen the enthusiasm of the gathering as they clapped just as loud at the finish as they clid at the beginning. The big drawing card was Bobby Hull of the Chicago Black Hawks. In Brooks to buy polled here- fords, he was convinced it would be a big occasion if he were to talk at the dinner. 1 have had the opportunity of meeting many I professional athletes and let it be said here and now, I have never met any who were more co-op- erative or just all round Mr. Nice Guy, than one Robert Marvin Hull.

Humor had it Thursday that [he Kuigs and Centennials were working on something but all was kept relatively quiet until the afternoon gathering. It became evident something was in the wind as soon as one arrived at the meeting. It has long been a known fact, when Scotty Munro is on hand, things are bound to be happening. Munro, owner and coach of the Centennials, did most of the lalMng, and rightly so, he is the principal character in the upcoming production. It was a case of tlic famous 'Munro System" taking over. "I'm only interested in hockey said the ro- tund promoter of the game he loves best, "and if this work- ing agreement wasn't good for the Centennials, we wouldn't be here." The meeting also ended the speculation as to who would be the new coach of the Kings for the 1970-71 season. NAMED COACH One of the first tilings on the agenda was the announcement that John Chapman, who Mun- ro indicated he had a lot of faith in, would succeed Howie Yaiiosik. It was announced earlier that Yanosik would step down due to a lack of. time to devote to the club. In Cliapman the Kings have youth and a strong quality of leadership. Chapman was born in Stettler, Alta. 25 years ago and played most of his minor hockey there before joining Munro in Estevan, Sask. He played four years of junior, three of which he was the team's captain, before turning professional with Dayton Gems and then later with Syracuse and Clinton. If the Kings are to take on the "Munro Look" this year Chapman is as capable as any- one to put it across. "He (Chapman) knows ttie system very commented Munro, "He'll be a great asset to the S'ugar icings." To say the local officials, Carl Trentini president of toe Kings and general manager Syd Hall, are happy is an un- derstatement. They are, to say the least, elated. "We've been pushed around too long by the Canadian Ama- teur said Tren- tini, "We're looking forward to this working agreement with Scotty and his team." Munro went on to say that hockey is a big league business and that's the way he runs things. If the operation isn't run right there will be some changes made. Munro has never been a loser. He got Ms start in Leth- bridge with the Native Sons, he was the coach of the only Leth- bridge team to make it to the Memorial Cup. The "Munro System" Is liere. The Sugar Kings open training camp Tuesday evening at Adams Ice Centre. This is when the system goes into ef- lect. as manager Hall said "is going to be quite a season for Lethbridge fans." Season tickets for the coming year will be on sale at Adams beginning Tuesday evening from 6-8 each evening. NEW COACH John Chapman, a native of Stettler, Alta. was named the coach of the tethbridge Sugar Kings Friday afternoon. He succeeds Howie Yanosik who stepped down due to business commitments. Washington, Lions Talk VANCOUVER (CP) Vic Washington, All-Canadian half- back for two years with the Ottawa Rough Rider's, talked at length Friday with the general manager of the British Colum- bia Lions, but there was no word on when, or if, Washing- ton would join the Lions. Washington, 25, was acquired by the Lions after being sus- pended by the Riders. Then Lions suspended him when he refused to report to Vancouv- er. B.C. general manager Denny Veitch said Washington was ex- amined Friday by the team doctor and that additional med- ical checks would be made Monday. The Lions leave for Edmon- ton Monday for a Canadian Football League game Tuesday night against the Eskimos, ami said Washington was not expected to make the trip. Washington, who plans to play for the San Francisco of the National Football League next season, says he is slJll bolhcral by a knee injury suffered lost year with Ottawa.
