Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - December 18, 1974, Lethbridge, Alberta 22 THE LETHBRIDGE HERALD Dtctmbtr 18, 1974 Olympics televised in Europe? 1 MONTREAL (CP) Despite European threats not to televise the 1976 Summer Olympic Games, the chairman of the Montreal organizing committee's television division is confident the Games will be shown in Europe. "There's too much involved for Europe not to take the Neil Asselin said in an interview Tuesday. "There's their international prestige and performance of their national teams to con- sider. "It's going to take a lot of negotiation and considerable compromise by both sides, but you can be sure the Olympics will be shown on European home television." Asselin said he had received a proposal from the European Broadcasting Union to resume negotiations in Lausanne, Switzerland. Jan. 22 at the headquarters of the Inter- national Olympic Committee. He said he would reply to the proposal early next week. The Montreal group wants between million and million for the EBU package whch will provide TV coverage to 33 countries. The EBU has said it would like the rights for same price paid for rights to the 1972 Summer Games at Munich. The Montreal organizing committee has sold the United States television rights to ABC for million and the CBC owns the Canadian rights. Sir Charles Curran, chairman of the EBU, said Saturday the EBU is "united that there will be no live coverage of the Games if Canada's demands are not reduced." He said the European net- works were ready to- spend about million for television rights and basic coverage, the amount they paid for retrans- missions from the Games in Mexico in 1968. Selects overcome Voyageurs HALIFAX (CP) Moscow Selects combined steady play with the ineptness of their op- ponents for a 4-2 victory in in- ternational exhibition hockey Tuesday over the Nova Scotia Voyageurs of the American Hockey League. Sergi Korotkov, Vladimir Devatov, Alexander Lochnov, and Victor Zhluktov scored for the Selects. Louis Chaisson and Richard Latullippe replied for the Voyageurs, who outshot the visitors 45-30. The game was a disappoint- ment for the fans at the Halifax Forum, who witness- ed a slow, chippy contest. They had been expecting an exciting encounter along the lines of usual Canadian Rus- sian international play. The Voyageurs are one of the top teams in the American Hockey League and the first professional team the Selects have played. WENDY COOK DISPLAYS HER TALENTS Water stars one-two in female balloting Cook's perseverence finally pays off By MEL SUFRIN CP Sports Editor Wendy Cook, who twice fail- ed a beginning swimmer's course as a child but per- severed to become one of the world's best backstrokers, is Canada's female athlete of the year for 1974. A triple gold medal winner at the Commonwealth Games in New Zealand last winter, the 18-year-old University of British Columbia physical education student is the No. 1 choice of sports writers and broadcasters in the annual year-end poll conducted by The Canadian Press. Runner-up is Beverley Boys, 23-year-old diver from Pickering, Ont., who won a gold medal in tower diving and a silver in springboard at the Commonwealth Games. Third place goes to Yvonne Saunders, 23-year-old sprinter from Guelph, Ont., who won a gold in the 400 metres and a bronze as a member of the 600-metre relay team at the Games. Miss Cook, a quietly con- fident athlete who doesn't feel it necessary to try to psych her opponents, put on a three- day blitz in New Zealand, winning the 100 metres in a games-record setting a world record of in the first leg of the 400-metre medley and taking the 200 metres in Her world record did not survive the year, however. It was subsequently beaten by Ulrika Richter of East Ger- many in and Margie Moffitt of the United States in a situation Miss Cook would like to rectify at the Olympics in Montreal in 1976. Wendy received her first swimming lesson at the age of four, tagging along with some friends in Vancouver. At six she failed the advanced beginners' course a couple of times because "I wasn't breathing properly." That is no longer a prob- lem. Not only is she a superb in the 200 metres is second in the world only to Miss Richter's is an excellent freestyle swimmer as well. Her in the 100-metre freestyle is fifth best in Can- ada, behind Gail Amundrud of Ottawa with 58.75, and her time of in the 200- metre individual medley is fourth behind the of Becky Smith of Thunder Bay, Ont. A member of the Canadian Dolphins Swim Club, where she has been coached by Deryk Snelling for the last seven years, Miss Cook re- ceives strong parental support in her swimming career. Her father David, a teacher, is a starter at swim competitions, and her mother Donna is a timer who often looks after the food for competitors and officials. But her two sisters and a brother, all younger, are not likely to follow her example. They're strictly summertime swimmers. Snelling, who coached suc- cessfully in England before coming to the Dolphins, says Miss Cook is typical of the "really good swimmer." "She is not sort of outward going in the sense of trying to Bruins coasted in third, Blues double up on New York Hamilton's triumph 9-2 Hamilton Floors, receiving hat tricks from Alvin Tietz and Cliff Block, steam'rolled over Oliver 9-2 in Industrial Hockey League play Monday night. Ray Austring added two to the Hamilton cause and Vic Palychuk rounded out the scoring. Terry Mitchell and Jack Carefoot scored for the losers. A HEALTHY PRESENT CCM BIKE EXERCISERS Keep slim, Trim Healthy A gift for the Whole Family 99 BERT MACS CYCLE LTD. 913-3rdAva.S. Phone 327-3221 THE CANADIAN PRESS Boston Bruins, pushing to overtake Buffalo Sabres in the National Hockey League's Adams Division, almost got caught with their heads down Tuesday night. "I think we were looking ahead to the New York game (Thursday) in the third said coach Don Cherry after his Bruins held on for a 5-3 victory over Atlanta Flames at Boston Garden. The Bruins took only four shots on goal in the final period, and gave up a goal to Bryan Hextall, before Phil Esposito clinched it with an open-net goal with nine seconds remaining. The Bruins' victory pulled them to within five points of the leading Sabres who did not play Tuesday night. In other games, St. Louis Blues whipped New York Islanders 8-4 and Vancouver Canucks beat Washington Capitals 4-2. Dave Forbes led Boston with two second-period goals that gave Boston a 4-1 spread before Atlanta caught fire. "This was the best game I've seen Forbes Cherry said. "He really blitzes down the left side and they've either got to let him go or trip him." Forbes has been getting a regular turn, replacing the in- jured Wayne Cashman. "This is rny second year so I know what to said the left winger. "Before I was looking at it a game at a time. Now I look at the whole year. "It's great to be playing. If you don't play regularly, you don't play the way you want to play. It seems like you're al- ways a step behind." Bobby Orr and John Bucyk gave the Bruins a 2-0 lead in the opening period before At- lanta's Jacques Richard scored early in the second. Forbes followed with two, before Larry Romanchych and Hextall scored for the Flames. Atlanta coach Bernie Geoff- rion was optimistic, despite suffering his eighth loss. "This was a great effort by my he said. "This is one of the best games they've played on the road so far. The European style of hockey is finally catching in the World Hockey Association and it's making Winnipeg Jets into a strong contender for the Canadian Division lead. The Jets used the European style of fast skating and pass- ing to smother Toronto Toros while Bobby Hull scored twice and assisted on the other two goals in a 4-1 victory Tuesday night. The victory moved the third-place Jets to within six points of the division leading Toros while second-place Quebec Nordiques closed to within three points of Toronto with a 6-1 victory over Chicago Cougars. In other WHA games, Hous- ton Aeros beat Edmonton Oilers 7-2, Vancouver Blazers edged Indianapolis Racers 3-2, San Diego Mariners defeated Cleveland Crusaders 8-3 and New England Whalers tied 2-2 with Michigan Stags. Serge Bernier scored his 20th and 21st goals of the season to lead Quebec in its win over the Cougars at Chicago. Bernier also assisted on first-period goals by Ric Jordan and Real Cloutier. boost her own confidence by talking loud to try to convince he says. But she is probably also her own toughest critic. After eas- ily winning the 200 metres in New Zealand she remained dissatisfied, saying "I started too fast and then ran oat of steam." And although she is a widely travelled young woman, hav- ing swum in Brazil, Europe and the United States as well as New Zealand, she regrets that she hasn't seen much of the places she has visited. "When I'm swimming I don't do anything except go to the meet. I think I could be anywhere, sometimes, as long as there is a pool. It isn't like being a tourist. You don't really see anything but you have an idea of what it's like." Miss Cook received 19 first- place votes, 12 seconds and 13 thirds in the annual poll in which voters are asked to name their three top choices. The ballots, rated on a 3-2-1 basis, give Wendy 94 points. Miss Boys is 16-10-7 for 75 points and Miss Saunders 14-6- 5 for 59 points. Fourth is Jane Haist of Thornhill, Ont., winner of Commonwealth Games gold medals in the discus and shot put, with 31 points, and fifth is Susan Natrass of Edmonton, world champion woman trapshooter, with 30. Last year's woman athlete was Karen Magnussen, the world champion figure skater from North Vancouver who has turned professional and retired from competition.

Barry hot for Warriors THE ASSOCIATED PRESS Rick Barry scored 44 points Tuesday night in leading Golden State Warriors to a 126-108 National Basketball Association victory over New York Knicks. In other NBA games, Atlanta Hawks defeated Washington Bullets 96-85, Kansis City Omaha beat Buf- falo Braves 111-110, Philadelphia defeated Boston Celtics 113-109, Cleveland defeated Los Angeles 119-106, Portland defeated Milwaukee 119-103, Chicago edged Seattle 87-84, and Houston beat New Orleans 109-93. In the only American Basketball Association game, Kentucky beat San Antonio 121-98. Earl Monroe's 28 points and 26 by Walt Frazier led New York, but Barry stole the show. "When you get a guy like Barry, you expect him to score 35 or Phil Jackson said after fouling out of the game in a futile attempt to stop him. STAN FISCHLER No baloney from Phil Maloney There was a time last season when the only things more screwed up than the Vancouver Canucks' forward lines was the Vancouver Canucks' front office. With the owner (Tom Scallen) with legal problems, the manager (Bud Poile) carping at the assistant manager (Hal Laycoe) and the players wondering where the next coach was coming from, the Canucks' tableau was right out of a nuthouse. A year later the Canucks look like hockey's bluebird of hap- piness. The Pacific Coliseum, as usual, is packed. The players, for a change, are smiling and G. M.-coach Phil Maloney has provided B.C. fans with the first winning club since Vancouver joined the JMHL. "I try for good hockey says Maloney, "and I try for good character. If necessary, though, I'll settle for just a good hockey player." One such Vancouver ace is big, young centre Chris Oddlieif- son, whom the Canucks virtually stole from the Bruins. "It was the biggest mistake Boston made in five says the Broadway oracle Derek Sanderson. "If Harry Sinden had any brains, he'd have kept me and Chris. With us there the Bruins would be running away with their division." Maloney not only has dealt well, he's become a master of human relations, a vital plus in today's hockey. "When guys are not says a source close to the Canucks, "Phil explains to them exactly why. He doesn't keep them in the dark." After the Canucks obtained Gary Monahan, Mike Robitaille, Gerry Meehan and John Grisdale earlier this season, Maloney immediately got them downtown hotel accomodations rather than following past procedure and putting them up in the suburbs. Then, he provided a car for them until they got their own autos shipped out. In October, when Dennis Ververgaert was taken to a Minneapolis hospital following a concussion in a game, Maloney turned up in his room at 4 a.m., then sat with the player for five hours. Not many managers are that thoughtful. When the Canucks were in Toronto, Maloney switched the team from its usual hotel to another one for just one reason. He found a place with bigger, longer beds to accommodate Gary Smith (8-5) and Bob Dailey "All these says one Canucks watcher, "are not only nice and thoughtful, but they're appreciated by the players.
