Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - December 19, 1974, Lethbridge, Alberta 16 THE LETH3RIDQE HERALD Thurtdey, December LAS VEGAS FUN FEST 4 davs, 3 nights accomodatlon. U drive for 48 hours. Return Airfare Great Falls, Las Vegas via Frontier Air- lines only ART WILLIAMS TRAVEL Centre Villcgt Mill 321-3201 WCHL All-Stars will have to skate By PAT SULLIVAN Herald Sports Editor The cream of the crop in the Western Canada Hockey League will gather in Lethbridge sometime Saturday to prepare for their first meeting with the national junior team. Lethbridge, and its beautiful new Sportsplex, will play host to the Czech-WCHL All-Star team encounter Sunday evening at seven o'clock. "We selected Lethbridge as the host city for the first game because of its facilities and also to thank them for the support they have given the WCHL and in particular the said league president Ed Chynoweth today. "It will be a once in a lifetime experience for a good many he added. "We would like to see them hanging from the rafters." The Czechs and All-Stars will play one other game in the South Monday evening in Medicine Hat. Sunday and Monday's games will serve as a warm-up for the All-Stars before they travel to Winnipeg for a 10- day international tournament. In Winnipeg the WCHL club will take part in a six- team affair featuring the Czechs, Russia, U.S.A., Finland and Sweden. Lethbridge and Southern Alberta hockey fans will be treated to a game such as fans in Winnipeg will see during the tourney. Tickets for the game are on sale daily at the Sportsplex from one to five o'clock. "I really don't know how you would describe a game such as said Chynoweth from his Saskatoon office. "It will be just great." Junior hockey is always a treat to watch as it is probably faster than professional hockey Chynoweth feels. "Any international hockey I have he said, "has always been exciting and well played." This time around should be no exception as the Czech team is made up of players currently being groomed for their national team which will take part in the 1976 Winter Olympics The WCHL team will be made up of the best of 12 teams. "We have decided that two players from each team will form the says Chynoweth. "That way no one club will be weakened any more than the other." Chynoweth could get an argument there. The Broncos will be without the services of Bryan Trottier and Brian Sutler for three games due to the International event. At present Trottier is second in the WCHL scoring race while Sutler is third. However, the WCHL has long been one of the finest junior leagues in the world. If Trottier and Sutler can help make them even better, then it is a fealher in our caps. Chynoweth feels Ihe All-Slars have a very good chance in the tournament, but they will have to skale their proverbial bulls off. Hockey at this level is the best Chynoweth has ever seen. He just hopes the WCHL juniors are up to their best when they take part.

The 1974 Grey Cup cham- pions, plagued by dismal fan support in a facility ill-dis- guised as a football stadium, may be No. 3 in the hearts of Montreal sports fans but they're No 1 in the estima- lion of Canadian sports writers and broadcaslers.

They were third in Ihe balloting a year ago after winning the Grey Cup. The Mustangs upset Univer- sity of Toronto in Ihe national intercollegiate foolball final, winning Iheir second College Bowl title in five years. Barrie notched Ihe Cana- dian senior hockey champion- ship while Ihe Commonwealth Games team was surprisingly strong at Christchurch, New Zealand, particularly in Ihe lesser-known evenls such as wreslhng, weighllifting, shooting.

Terms of the pact were not announced but il was believed lhal it included a substantial salary increase. The 36-year-old righl- hander said lasl season lhal he would npt sign unless he gol more lhan team-mate Frank Robinson, who later was named manager of the In- dians. However, in announc- ing Tuesday at his home in Williamston, N.C., thai he had agreed lo terms with the Tribe, Perry said: "This is a contract I can live with." Announcement of Perry's signing came following a 45- minute news conference where General Manager Phil Seghi said he was happy to have the ace pitcher under contract. Perry came to the Indians from San Francisco Giants prior to the 1972 baseball season and won the Cy Young Award in his first American League season, when he com- piled a 24-16 record. He got his fourth 20-victory season wilh a 21-13 record in 1974. He also led the Indians' pitching staff in almost every category while finishing se- cond in the American League in earned-run average, 2.51, and complete games, 28; third in innings pitched, 322, and fourth in strikeouts, 216. Perry won 15 games in a row in 1974 after losing the season opener.
