Attendance HELMETS A MUST NIAGARA FALLS, Ont. (CP) Car rally drivers will have to wear safety helmets and install roll bars in their vehicles for the 1975 season, the Canadian Automobile Sport Clubs have decided. Wolsey's hot hand lasted only a half By CLARKE HUNTER Herald Sports Writer Curt Wolsey should have just stayed on the court at halftime Saturday night and kept shooting. The 15-minute rest cooled off his hot hand, and the University of Lethbridge Pronghorns could find no other way to beat a tight zone defence as they dropped an 83- 78 decision to the University of Calgary Dinosaurs at the U of L gymnasium. Wolsey's outside shooting kept the locals in the game in the first half, as he racked up 24 points to help the Pronghorns hold on to r 41-41 tie going into the dressing room. However, his blistering 52% shooting percentage from the floor, mostly on jumpers from the 25-foot range, could not iast forever as he managed only eight points in the second half. Early in the second half, the fine shooting of Phil Letham off the fast break, and several steals by the Pronghorn press gave the locals a narrow lead. But the steady scoring of Calgary's Tom Bishop kept the Pronghorns from pulling away and, unable to penetrate the Calgary zone, the locals finally fell behind 83-62 with nine minutes remaining. Then the Dinosaurs found a hole in the Pronghorn's half- court squeeze, and Bishop and Lyle Leslie found themselves open time and again for easy layups underneath. With just a minute and a half to go, the Dinos had built up an 83-73 lead, but the Pronghorns had 400 spectators on their feet the rest of the way as they almost fashioned a storybook comeback. Baskets by Richard Foggo and Letham, followed by a free throw by Wolsey brought the locals to within five, and then they stole the ball with 41 seconds left. However, they couldn't get up a good shot against the Calgary defence in the final seconds, and the Dinosaurs held on for the win. The loss meant the Pronghorns had to settle for a weekend split following a con- vincing 96-82 win Friday, and left them in a tie for fifth place in the Canada West University Athletic Associa- tion with a 2-4 record. The University of Alberta Golden Bears and the Victoria Vikings are tied in first place with 4-2 marks. Coach Robin Fry expressed disappointment at his club's failure to take the sweep, and cited the tight Calgary zone and the fine play of Tom Bishop as major factors. "We couldn't penetrate that he lamented. "You just can't pass over those 6'6" kids." "And everything Bishop threw up went in." Bishop finished the game with 40 points as he hit on 53% of his chances from the floor. Next in line for the Dinos was Pat Lee, who clicked On 80% of his shots to score 17 points. Lyle Leslie chipped in with 14 points. The Dinosaurs as a team shot an amazing 57% from the floor, while the Pronghorns could hit on only Wolsey, of course, led the locals with 32 points as he came up with undoubtedly his finest performance of the year. Despite cooling off in the second half, he still hit 42% of his shots over the 40 minutes. Richard Foggo, who has a much easier time of it when The weather was bad and so were the Atlanta Falcons someone is forced to go one- on-one with him, had to struggle to maintain his 21- point average, which he scored exactly. Letham was the only other Pronghorn to finish in double figures with 15 points. The Pronghorns took a beating on the boards, as the Coast clubs not hospitable locals belted twice By THE CANADIAN PRESS November was a perfect month for the Cougars who won all of their 10 games, including a 13-1 Western Canada Hockey League vic- tory over Lethbridge Broncos in Victoria Saturday night. Then the Cougars, who lead the Western Division with 28 points, started December by beating "Kamloops Chiefs 5-3 Sunday night in Victoria. In Edmonton, the Oil Kings snapped a five-game losing streak by trouncing Winnipeg Clubs 10-4 Sunday. The Oil Kings are fifth in the Western Division and the Clubs are fifth: in the East.

Calgary Centennials, in the West cellar, recorded their first home victory, 6-3 over se- cond-place Medicine Hat Tigers. In Regina, the Pats, second in the East, edged last-place Flin Flon Bombers 4-3. The Wheat Kings, third in the East, built up a 5-2 second- period lead then held off first- place Saskatoon Blades for a 6-5 victory in Brandon. In other Saturday night ac- tion, the second-place Tigers ran their unbeaten streak in the East to three games, a tie and two wins when they defeated the-fourth-place Pats 4-1. Jim Gustafson scored four goals and Mel Bridgman add- ed three for Victoria Satur- day. Don Cairns scored twice and Peter Morris, Al Hill, Curt Fraser and Rick Peter added singles. In the Sunday game against the Chiefs, Cairns also scored twice and singles were added by Hill, Fraser and Bridgman. Bridgman's goal was his 29th of the year and boosted his league-leading point total to 65. Ryan Walter scored all three Kamloops goals, including a pair within 44 seconds early in the third period.

Paul Mulvey, Brent Peterson, Rocky Maze, Terry Bucyk, Wayne Perkins, Terry McDonald and Doug Lecuyer also scored for Edmonton.

In New Westminster, Brian Shmyr and Kelly Secord scored two goals each for the Bruins, while Mike Sleep, Steve Clippingdale, Clayton Pachal, Barry Beck, Allan Fleck and Richard Shinske scored one each. Jerry Bancks scored three goals for Lethbridge with singles going to Sutter and Alex Tidey. In Calgary, Don Ashby scored twice for the Centennials, last in the West, and Mike Fynn gpt the winner JERRY BANCKS THE LONE BRIGHT LIGHT It had to happen, no shows recorded The ASSOCIATED PRESS The 33-degree temperature and Atlanta's football for- tunes combined to set an National Football League record for no-shows Sunday, factors that Falcons' owner Rankin Smith can understand.

New England stopped Oak- land's running attack and Raiders' quarterback Ken Stabler threw for 251 yards and four touchdowns. With the stands almost emp- ty, Los Angeles turned At- lanta mistakes into points to roll over the Falcons. Dave Elmendorf returned an inter- ception 57 yards for one touch- down and Charlie Stukes set up another score with another interception just 99 seconds later. Rams running back Lawrence McCutcheon crack- ed mark by gaining 53 yards in 16 carries. John Leypoldt booted two field goals, the only scoring of the day, to give Buffalo the win over Baltimore. O.J. Simpson of Buffalo rushed for 67 yards to give him for the season, the third straight year he has passed the mark. Dinosaurs out-rebounded them 43-30. Leslie picked off 15 to lead the visitors, while Lauren Edlund was tops for the locals with nine. Wolsey and Foggo had seven each. The press worked again for coach Fry, forcing 40 tur- novers to only 16 for his club but, he maintained, "we didn't get the ones we really needed." "The guys didn't work as well on it as they did Friday." The Canada West league now breaks off for the Christ- mas holidays, and the Pronghorns won't see league action again until January 10 when they host Victoria. They do, however, have a number of exhibition games on tap during the next month. In the women's game Satur- day, Jack Lilja's Pronghorns did manage the sweep, as they broke out to a 27-22 halftime lead and went on to beat the Dinnies 55-44. Once again, the locals clubbed the visitors on the boards, as they snatched 55 rebounds to only 29 for Calgary. And the rebounders were getting the outlet pass away quickly. Time and again, the Pronghorns beat the Dinnies on the fast break for easy layups. Cathy Peacock led the scor- ing parade for the locals with 16 points while Sandra Knight and Georgina Lester added 11 apiece. Tina Nicholychuk was tops for Calgary with 10 points. The Pronghorns shot at a 27% clip from the floor and turned the ball over 21 times while the Dinnies hit on only 23% of their shots, and erred 23 times in handling the ball. In Victoria, Jim Duddridge pulled down 15 rebounds and scored 10 points to lead the Vikings to a 61-56 win over the UBC Thunderbirds in another game Saturday. The University of Alberta Golden Bears scored 53 points in the first hajf on their home court to whip Saskatchewan Huskies 88-61. Dave Holland led the Bears with 14 points while Roger Ganes was tops for Saskatoon with 16. In women's action, Univer- sity of Saskatchewan Huskiettes took their sixth straight win with a 59-43 vic- tory over the Alberta Pandas, and the Victoria Vikettes edg- ed UBC Thunderettes 51-48. HOOP SHOTS The Pronghorns have yet to sweep a weekend series in the past two years... coach Fry main- tains that his goal this year is "to win a Saturday night game" Roger Baldry isn't scoring as often as he did last year, but his hustle is a big factor on the court he steals as many balls as anyone on the press Wolsey was truly amazing in the first half Calgary coach Gary Howard remarked after the game that it burned him up to see his boys playing super defence only to have Wolsey fire them in from the bleachers.
