Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - December 23, 1970, Lethbridge, Alberta 3 _ THE LETHBRIDG5 HERALD Wednesday, December 23, 1970---------------- Seals find winning combination capers for Rangers By IAN MacL.UNE CiiiiEuliiin Press Staff Writer If Dave Galon keeps doing the unexpected, New York Hangers arc to have to take an- other look at his credentials. And if California Golden Seals continue to do the unexpected, several National Hockey League West-Division clubs arc going to have to consider the Seals defi- nite threats to their playoff hopes. Bnlon, 32, scored tlffee goals Tuesday night as the Hangers romped to a 7-2 win over the hapless Buffalo Sabres in an East-Division meeting while California finally got out of the West-Division cellar, defeating the division-leading Chicago Black Hawks S-2 for their fourth straight victory. They were the only two games scheduled. Tonight, Montreal Canadiens visit St. Louis Vancouver Canucks are at Toronto against the Maple Leafs, Boston Bruins take on the Red Wings at De- troit and Chicago moves on to Los Angeles against the Kings. Balon, who reached a career high of 33 goals with his first Ihree-goal night in the big leagues in the final game Of the 1369-70 season against Detroit, has been used almost exclu- sively on New York's checking ANDY CAPP Ur? VsOMAN IT'LL BE OVER BEFORE WE GET THERE.' 'S BEEN Wl1 THEM SO LONG, SET INVITED T1 THE' STAFF RARTV.' NATIONAL ASSISTANCE. OTTAWA (CP) A natioaa coaches organization is to be formed in Canada with govern ment financial help, Health Min ister John Munro told a news conference Tuesday. Its aim will be to improve the calibre of coaching and thus up- grade Canadian competitors in national and internationa events, the minister said. John Hudson of Toronto, one- time national track and fielc coach, has been named execu- tive-director of the organization Among leading sports authori- ties to help him will be Lloyc Percival, president of the Fit- ness Institute of Toronto. To get the organization off the Leafs add to EDMONTON (CP) Randy Smith scored two goals and Dale Bowler had one goal and two assists to pace Edmonton Maple Leafs to a 7-3 Alberta Junior Hockey League victory over Edmonton Movers Tues- day night. Smith opened the scoring at of the first period and Bowler's goal at gave them a 2-0 lead going into the second frame. Rick Mornden made it 3-0 be- fore Bob Sidney put the Mov- ers on the Scoreboard. Smith scored again, putting the Leafs up 4-1 and Bidney closed out the second period with a goal at Keith Mackie, Curtis Shoko- poles and Gene Ptrate scored for the Maple Leafs in the third period while Doug Clark scored for the Movers. Brian Rimmer made 35 saves for the Movers while Larry Hendricks made 16 at the other end of the rink, The Movers took 12 of 17 minor penalties. ground, it has been given space in the government provided sports administration building in Ottawa. The government will pay the usual office expenses and the salary of the executive- director. Other federal help also is planned. INVOLVES COACHES Hudson said the planned pro- gram will exlend to the roughly amateur coaches in Can- ada, including those who volun- teer to coach in the thousands of minor hockey leagues. He said Canada is one of the few countries without full-time national coaches. Those who are coaching have no place to lool for expert advice or training programs. Eventually the association would be in a position to decide what coaches rank tops in each sport and to decide which ones should be involved in coaching for big inernational and Cana- dian events. Federal fitness grants in the past have aimed at helping sports bodies organize and at- :end meets. Grants soon to be announced would help them take on full- ime, experienced coaches. Top international coaches would be flown to Canada to make films and other coaching aids. These films would be made available to coaches in lanada. Elks host Calgary Exhibition hockey will be on the menu at the Arena tonight with Lethbridge Elks of the Southern Alberta Juvenile League meeting the Calgary midget AA Canucks. The game will get under at eight o'clock and will be the final contest in local hockey circles until after Christmas. QRANLEA RESERVOIR, located south-east of Bow Island, and {airly heavily stocked with trout, is in trouble. The water level in the stock watering impound- ment is extremely low and oxygen tests indicate a heavy winter kill. The fish and wildlife branch has decided that in the interest of salvaging the rainbows out of Granlea before they die off, an open season for recreational net fishing has been set to run through to Jan. 4. Fishermen reqiu're a recreational net fishing li- cence which costs Tin's entitles them to use 25 yards of gill net of any mesh size and take up to not more than 100 pounds of fish. The fish and wildlife branch recommends that 2Vz to SVa-inch mesh should bring best results at Granlea.

There are now nearly active members in more than 200 clubs belonging to the National Muzzle Loading Rifle Association in Canada and the United States. Through affiliation with the Lethbridge Fish and Game Association, George is ready to help organize a muzzle loading club in Lethbridge. There are sev- eral others who have shown keen inteiest. It's hoped that a local club could be active by early spring. George may be contacted by telephoning 327-7061 or writing him at his home at 520 15th St. S. WELL-KNOWN local dairy manager Ralph Ten- nant says he has had enough of big game hunting for awhile. Driving home from Calgary recently, a deer decided that it wanted to end it all and jumped hi front of Ralph's car on Highway 2, near the Okotoks cut-off.. Ralph was little the worse for wear, but it was decided that it would be best if he got a new car. A few clays later, driving along Highway 3, near the Alberta Gas Trunk booster station between Natal and Crowsnest, B.C., a cow moose decided to chal- lenge Ralph's authority on the highway. The windshield was smashed, as the moose hit over the hood of the new car, then bounced onto the roof, and down off the back of the car. Again Ralph came out little the worse for wear. The car's roof had a sizeable dent. Ralph whacked it with his fist from the inside and it popped back into place. The last Ralph saw of the moose was as it im- mediately got up without hesitation and it ambled off into the brush with her calf nearby. THERE ARE PROBABLY not too many people in southern Alberta who have not heard of Fearless Farris of Bow Island. During the big game season, he was on his way up into the A-7 country to meet his daughter and son-in-law at a pre-arranged spot where camp was set up. On his way up his vehicle slipped off the trail and it went end over end down into the brush. He was down, badly bruised for more than three hours in very cold weather before he was finally found by his daughter and son-in-law, who had come looking for him. "But, there was one thing that really saved said Mr. Farris. "I managed to crawl into my sleep- ing bag. No one should ever go into the back country for any reason without a good sleeping bag." NOW, THAT TIME HONORED WISH TO ONE AND ALL: "MERRY CHRISTMAS AND HAPPY NEW YEAR." line with Pete StemkowsM and Bob Ncvin. His tlirce goals and two as- sists against the Sabres, last in the East, gave lu'm 23 points, in- eluding 17 goals, and the Rangers moved into a first- place tie with Boston, each with 49 points. The Wakaw, left winger spent most of his minor professional career in the Ranger system before being claimed by Montreal Canadiens prior to the 1963-64 season. The Canadiens didn't protect him from the 1967 expansion teams and he wound up on the Minnesota North Stars roster when Emile Francis, New Y o r k 's general-manager and coach, became convinced he should be back in a Ranger uni- form. Balon scored only 10 goals his first tern: back but enjoyed his best season ever last year with 70 points, joining linemates Walt Tkaczuk and1 Bill Fairbaim as the second highest-scoring line in the NHL. GOAL PROVED WINNER His first goal Tuesday night proved to be the winner as New York blitzed Buffalo goalie Roger Crazier for three goals in each of the second and third pe- riods. The Golden Seals meanwhile may have found the formula to survive in their own division. Their victory over Chicago, which moved them into sixth place ahead of Los Angeles, was only the second against teams from their own division this sea- son. The other nine victories have been at the expense of the established East Division clubs. The win also gave them a four-game winning streak, which includes two victories over Detroit and one against Philadelphia Flyers, their first over a West Division opponent. The Black Hawks, who had lost only once in fheir own divi- sion while building a nine-point lead in the West, took a 1-0 lead on Bobby Hull's 17th of the sea- son at of the first period. HICKE BROTHERS STAR But the Hicke brothers, Billy and Ernie, continued the hot hand they enjoyed against De- troit Sunday when they scored two goals each. Ernie had two goals against the Hawks and Billy one goal and an assist as the Golden TOP GOLFER Billy Casper poses in a New York restaurant after he was named winner of Golf Magazine's player-of-the-year honor.
