Just I could do almost anything for anyone or any team I chose. Where would I Right at the moment I would start right at in Lethbridge. I would get the Lethbridge Longhorns on the right track with a seven or eight game winning streak. As I would get them a couple of animals for defencemen. Two or maybe three guys who would run at Brent McCracken or Dean McGee. Sort of a protection racket for local interests. It would be nice to be able to bring back Phil Tollestrup and Bill to the University of Lethbridge for at least one season. While I'm in the process of scouting around for basketball 1 would call on Gary Williams and Dwight White for a return to the Community College just long enough for this year's crop of rookies to gain needed experience. How about a berth in the Alberta final for the men's brier. And maybe the gals as well. It's been quite some time since local curling has had a strong representation in provincial ranks. There's not much one can do for the Lethbridge Figure Skating Club. They have progressed so greatly over the past few rears that they are taking care of themselves very nicely. One thing I could do would be to bring a few winners home or old buddy Ted Berlanda at the Fall Race Meet next Sept. iVhile I'm at it. I might just as well throw in two weeks of leautiful weather for Andy Andrews. A new stadium on the old site of Henderson Park would be jnder construction shortly if I had my way. The Lethbridge Lakers plan to bid for the Canadian baseball championships in 1975 and it would mean so much to them to have a nice home Dark. I had nothing to do with but somebody and this is the Lime of year for the unexpected so the Country Club people up with a gift to the city. At least their gesture is full of goodwill It will be just great to have another 18-hole golf course n the city. At Henderson Lake about the only thing a person could do A-ould be to help out with the changes they are making to the to make the Lake Layout that much more of a challenge. And when I was finished with helping the locals at this wonderful time of year I would turn my attentions to the big leagues. How would a Grey Cup for played right in the Cow- sound for I'm not greedy enough to want it in 1974. Detroit Red Wings would win the Stanley Cup for Alex the Baltimore Colts would return to the Los Angeles Dodgers would win the World Series and I would win a cool million on the Olympic Lottery. All kidding wouldn't it be wonderful to be able to do more at Christmas time for those who have less than k-ou and I know I won't think about anyone but myself and family when I sit down to turkey dinner and all the trimmings Christ- inas Day. Maybe if I could have one wish it would be to change just me slightly. Just enough so I might influence the next person and pass it on. I have lots to be thankful for. I just wish it didn't take a Christmas or Thanksgiving to make me realize it. that's the way things are. I don't have the power to change things. All I can to all of is Merry a Very Happy New Year and May God Bless. Orioles tops THE ASSOCIATED PRESS Teacher and pupil clash Sunday in the National Foot- ball League playoffs when Cincinnati Bengals meet Miami's defending Super Bowi the Dolphins. The teacher is Paul coach of the Bengals. The pupil is Don Miami's bench boss who broke into professional foptball as a defensive back under Brown with Cleveland during the 1950s.

National League president Charles S. Feeney ruled Fri- uay uidi. a group WHG to move the team to had not met the provisions for the transfer and so the team reverts to San Diego. Feeney said a transfer to Washington is still a possibili- ty but it is also possible that the league itself will operate the team in San Diego in 1974. we go back to where we were a month said E. G. president of the Padres. Feeney's decision was ap- proved in a conference call with the league's 12 owners. The apparent roadblock to the move was the inability of the headed by grocery store magnate Joseph to resolve a dis- pute with the city of San Diego. The city still holds a 20-year lease with 15 years remaining with the Padres for the use of the stadium. The city has filed a breach of contract suit against all par- ties concerned in the switch. are very much in the Danzansky told the Washington Post. have been invited to stay in and work this thing while the Oilers stopped Van- couver Blazers 4-1.

Cincinnati is a club on the rise. Paul Brown and his staff have turned in one of the best coaching jobs in the NFL this year the way they have brought this team The Dolphins captured the AFC East with a 12-2 record and have won 26 of 28 games over .the last two seasons. They've also captured 22 con- secutive games at home in the Orange Bowl. That's a tough record for Brown's young Bengals to battle. Cincinnati captured the AFC Central title with a 10-4 mark. The quarterback matchups give Cincinnati a statistical edge. The Bengals' Ken Anderson had a 54.4- completion percentage and 18 touchdowns to 53.2 and 17 TDs for Bob Griese. Both teams have a pair of power runners. Essex Johnson gained 997 yards and Bobbie Clark 988 for Cincinnati. Larry Csonka churned out 1.003. his third straight yard and Mercury Morris added 954. The Los Angeles-Dallas game matches the NFL's two highestscoring teams. The back in the playoffs for the first time since lost only two games by a total of three points all year. LA scored 388 only six more than the Cowboys. Dallas boasts the NFL's No. 1 in Roger who had a 62.6 completion percentage and pegged 23 touchdowns. John Hadl hurled passes for the Rams. Both clubs have runners in their backfields. Calvin Hill set a Cowboy rushing record with yards and Larry McCutcheon did the same for the grounding out Elks tie Blazers The Vulcan Blazers pulled their goalie for a sixth at- tacker and the strategy paid off as they managed a 5-5 draw with the Lethbridge Midget Elks in a Southern Alberta Juvenile Hockey League game Friday night. The who trailed 5-4 with less than a minute pulled their net- minder when the Elks were assessed a minor penalty. At the they watched the strategy pay off as Ron Rost banged in a loose puck for the equalizer. Brad Glen Bob Holm and Ron Schmidt whipped in with single markers for Vulcan while Mike Boychuk and Scott Jarvie with two each and Rick Wiest with one replied for the Elks. Kinsmen skatathon on Feb. 2 Once around the ice may be enough this year in the annual Kinsmen Club Skatathon. Weather this year's event will take place on the ice at Henderson Lake. Not at the Ice but right out on the lake. might be the longest test of skating these young fellows have ever said Kinsmen chairman Bill John- son. Johnson made it clear that the Skatathon will be held on the lake only if the city gives its approval. We want it on the lake so we can have as many skaters take part as they add- ed Johnson. if the ice isn't safe or if it is too cold the event will be postponed. Held in co-operation with the Lethbridge Minor Hockey there is no age limit on the entries. As organized clubs may take advantage of the Skatathon to raise funds for their own club. For more information con- tact Bill Johnson at 328-5820 after six o'clock. This year's by taking advantage of Henderson Lake and its big ice could very well be the biggest in historv for the one-dav affair.
