Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - December 6, 1974, Lethbridge, Alberta Prklay, December 6, 1974 THE LETHBRIDGE HERALD 15 NHL president foresees an end to WHA problems PITTSBURGH (CP) The World Hockey Association "isn't going to be around very long" because it faces fatal economic problems, says Clarence Campbell, president of the rival National Hockey League. Campbell told a news conference here Wednesday: "Economically, the WHA simply can't continue much longer. Some franchises might survive but attendance simply doesn't justify continuing in many cities in that league." Campbell was in Pittsburgh to check on one of the NHL's own economic problems, the financially troubled Penguins. Only fans attended Wednesday night's game between Toronto Maple Leafs and the Penguins and, because of attendance problems and a steep payroll, the NHL is giving the club financial assistance. The NHL has an even bigger problem in Oakland, Calif., where it has operated California Seals since acquiring them from Charles 0. Finley. It is looking for a buyer. "We've got to resolve the Oakland situa- tion or we'll bleed to Campbell said He added there is a good possibility the team wilt be moved but "nothing is positive yet." The Seals are drawing an average of 800 fans a game. To break even in the NHL crowds of around are needed. Campbell said Denver interests, who have been awarded an NHL franchise for the 1976 77 season, have offered to buy the Seals and move the team to Colorado. Campbell's remarks about the WHA brought an immediate response from Den- nis Murphy, WHA president. Speaking in Long Beach, Calif., Murphy said, "Clarence Campbell should mind his own business." "Campbell has been wrong since we started. Our attendance is up 40 per cent or over the same time last year. We've made steady progress and Campbell should worry about the problems in his own league." Murphy singled out new NHL franchises in Washington and Kansas City as critical areas. Campbell also commented on those clubs, saying a more generous allocation of players in the expansion draft would have been helpful to them, although it would also have been unfair to other re- cent expansion teams. Richard will be missing Will first World Bowl be the one and only? BIRMINGHAM, Ala. (AP) George Mira's 11-year search through three professional football leagues for the glory he knew as a collegiate star finally brought him some satisfaction Thurs- clay when he expertly maneouvered Birmingham Americans to victory in the first World Bowl. At the same time, Americans coach Jack Gotta won his second league title in as many years. He directed Ottawa Rough Riders to the Grey Cup title in the Canadian Football League last season. Toronto hopes take big jump NEW ORLEANS (CP) Toronto's hopes for a major league baseball team were riding high today after com- missioner Bowie Kuhn listed the city among the top four contenders for the next round of expansion, which will probably take place in 1976. At baseball's winter meetings Thursday, the American and National Leagues established an un- precedented joint committee to deal with expansion and the problems of attendance- starved clubs that have been talking about moving. Kuhn told reporters that new cities to receive the com- mittee's "principal focus" are those that have stadiums of big league calibre built or in progress. He listed Toronto, Seattle, Washington and New Orleans in that category. The four groups trying for the Toronto franchise are Labatt Breweries, Maple Leaf Gardens, the Canadian Baseball Co. headed by Toronto construction man and R. Montreal Sydney Cooper, Howard Webster, a industrialist. Metro has just begun a million rebuilding of the Cana- dian National Exhibition Sta- dium, which will accom- modate persons for baseball in time for the 1976 season Toronto's chances appear to have been improved by the ap- pointment of John McHale, president of Montreal Expos, to the four-man joint expan- sion committee. He is a strong advocate of the Toronto bid. The Expos made the biggest trading news of the week-long meetings, with three deals cli- maxed Thursday by their swap of former all-star out- fielder Willie Davis to Texas Rangers of the American League for mfielder Pete Mackanin and pitcher Don Stanhouse. Davis, 34, was voted Expos player of the year last season and led the team in most offensive departments. SHOOTERS' It would appear that coyote populations are at a, high level again this fall, based on reports of antelope and deer hunters that report numerous sigtitmgs each day It has also come to our attention that a number of 1080 poison "control" programs are being contemplated. We at Plainsman feel that nowhere In the management of our wildlife is there such great confusion as in the regulations govern- ing the fur bearing predators On the one hand we have a program launched by one Department of the Government based on 1080 poison, which often completely eliminates coyote populations from a given area whilst also killing farm dogs, beneficial smaller predators. and birds On the other hand regulations seem designed to hinder the sport shooting of these animals We frankly favour ths shooting for sport, three reasons Firstly we feel that the coyote has a place in nature, and at a point where coyote populations are reduced to reasonable numbers the hunter no longer finds It attractive to hunt Thus there is no danger of complete elimination, as with poison, in a designated area Secondly we feel that the waste of a valuable fur resource is despicable, and more than one Southern Alberta lad has furthered his education through the money received from coyote pelts Finally we feel that this hunting provided an invaluable recreation to winter bound residents with little to do in the winter The proposed regulation restricting the shooting from road allowances seems designed to hinder the coyote hunter specifically, and one cen not help but wonder why it was proposed. Yes, there is friction between the land owner and hunter during the seasons for game, but it is not readily apparent during the winter coyote hunts, if for no other that most of the hunters are land owners themselves. We wonder what sort of reasoning prompted the proposed change Certainly we at Plainsman would be pleased to pass on to some of our responsible Invitations to hunt coyotes from any rancher with a problem And we believe most ranchers would rather see a pelt taken than find the dead carcasses in the spring, knowing full well of the agony that the 1080 created rUIRSHAR SPOETS Western Canada's leading sup- plier of quality firearms, target equipment, reloading supplies, lightweight camping gear, com- plete gunsmithing service LCTHtRIDGK, ALTA. KtNKOTKAS MOMS SHEILA KING DON MARINO ART BOURNE RITA 8ROOKS And the World Football League, whose incredible financial problems could conceivably force it to fold without ever playing a second season, at least closed its first one on a brief note of respec- tability. Historians might even say that Birmingham's 22-21 vic- tory over Florida Blazers, whose furious fourth-quarter comeback failed by the narrowest of margins, bodes good for the future. This game drew a crowd of which is 183 more than the old American Football League drew to its first cham- pionship game. The determin- ing factor this time was Mira, the 11-year pro who last year played with the CFL Montreal Alouettes. Mira had alternated four running backs, completed two key passes to tight end Bob Brown and run out of trouble several times himself as he methodically produced three long marches and a 22-0 lead. But then Bob Davis, the Florida quarterback whose only two completions in the first 44 minutes were caught by the wrong team, found his receivers. In a 90-second stretch he took his team 88 yards with four pass completions, the last one covering 39 yards and ending with Tommy Reamon in the end zone. Three punts later, Davis did it again. Scrambling away from a frantic Birmingham pass rush, he hit tight end Greg Latta down the right sideline with a 40-yard scoring bomb. And 90 seconds later, Rod Foster, a rookie from Harvard, shook off five tacklers as he whirled and danced his way to a 76-yard touchdown with a Bir- mingham punt. Lach and Guyle without Rocket Elmer Fielder Richard? That's the way it looks for Sunday's Old-Timers game Maurice Richard, due to business commitments, will be unable to play ic Sunday's game featuring the National Hockey League Old-Timers and their counterparts from the old Western Hockey League. Richard was expected to suit up with the NHL Old- Timers along with former teammate and winger Elmer Lach. However, Lach will be here as will the likes of Bill Gadsby, Ted Lindsay, Jack Stewart, John Ferguson and hopefully hometown favorite Fielder. It has been quite sometime since Lethbridge hockey fans have been able to watch the slick Fielder and a trip down nostalgia lane with Guyle may be just what the doctor ordered. The action gets under way at the Sportsplex at two A number of local hockey stars will be in uniform for the Western Oldies including Earl Ingarfield, Les Colwill, Stan Maxwell, Bob Bartlett, Al Willis, Howie Yanosik and Jim Baird Referees for Sunday's en- counter will be Red Storey and Don Marshall. Tickets for the game are on sale at the Sportsplex and Leister's. Lennon upsets Pickering EDMONTON (CP) Defending champion Bob Pickering of Milestone, Sask., has only one more chance to stay alive in the Canadian Open curling championship that opened Thursday Pickering absorbed his se- cond consecutive defeat in an afternoon game, losing to Lawrence Lennon of Lethbridge 6-5, and must defeat Dean Olson of Ed- monton today in a morning game to advance m the cham- pionship Pickering earlier lost to Zane Kotyk of Edmonton 94. Three-time winner Merv Mann of Saskatoon narrowly averted a fate similar to Pickering's He stole one on the 10th end against last rock when Gil Svensen of Leduc, failed to move a Mann rock far enough Mann lost his first match. Two-time champion Hec Gervais of St. Albert, who won his first game, lost to Rick Cust of Edmonton 6-4 in the second qualifying round.

LARRY GIROUX BECOMES AIRBORN AS HE TRIPS ON GOALIES' STICK LCC Kodiaks, Kodiettes to see first league action The Lethbridge Community College Kodiaks and Kodiettes both open their 1974- 75 basketball season Friday and Saturday when they meet Camrose Lutheran College and Red Deer College in LCC's first league games. Friday night's action gets under way at with the Kodiettes meeting the Lutheran girls while at the Lutheran boys go against the Kodiaks. Saturday's games with Red Deer com- mence at 1 p.m. with the girls game and a 3 p.m. game featuring the Kodiaks and the Red Deer boys. Both LCC clubs have been preparing for the season with exhibition games and tourna- ment action, and both clubs racked up respectable perfor- mances in these events. The Kodiaks, with the com- pletion of last weekend's President's Invitational Tour- nament at the LCC, are well on their way to hitting their peak and looked very im- pressive, particularly in the last game of the tourney. Greg Hess was named the most valuable player of the LCC tourney and Al Pard made the All-Star squad. Cur- tis Travis, John Jasiukiewicz also played well in the tourney, as did Kendon Eakett and Dave Preus. Missing from the tournament play was new- ly married Wendall Cahoon, but he will be in the lineup for the weekend league games. The Kodiettes are starting a new season with a new coach, Ray Stoddard, and are looking for a productive year. They will be relying heavily on the shooting of Shirley Yuill and Shellee Reeder as well as the work of Brenda Lazarik Both teams play an ex- citing, crowd pleasing brand of ball and will be strong contenders for the conference titles.
