Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - December 30, 1971, Lethbridge, Alberta Thursday, December 30, 197] THE UTHBRIDCE HERALD Host club finishes idth 3-0 record Comets edge past Winnepeg for tourney honors By LLOYD YAMAG1SIII Herald Sports Writer "Late presents are just as good." The Raymond Comets came to realize that late Christmas presents are just as good as early ones, capturing the fifth annual Raymond Sugar Bowl basketball tournament cham- pionship Wednesday night. The Comets, usually a pow- er-packed basketball club have had their share of problems this season, losing out in two earlier tournaments and failing to win a Southern Alberta "A" Boy's Basketball League game in two starts.

Grant McLaren didn't think Jim Doolcy out of job CHICAGO (AP) Jim Doo- ley, 41, was dismissed as head coach of Chicago Bears Wednes- day with one year remaining on a five-year contract. Owner George Halas, making the announcement personally, said that the Bears are open for applicants lo fill Dooley's posi- tion. Halas said the reason for dis- missing Dooley can best be pul bluntly that "the record speaks for itself." In successive National Foot- ball League seasons as head coach Dooley compiled records of 7-7, 1-13, 6-8 and 6-8 for an over-all mark of 20-36. The Bears finished this season witli five consecutive defeats. "As far as a successor is con- said Halas, "the door is wide open.

John Paul Ongaralo of Perth, Ont, set the mark of 55-3-li in a 1968 indoor meet. In the men's mile, McLaren, 23, was thinking of scratching himself from the event because he "isn't fast enough" and he's better at distance races. He took the lead from Keilh Munson of Oregon State Univer- sity with 214 laps remaining, then pulled away for a convinc- ing victory in four minutes, 5.5 seconds. Highly-rated Peter Kaal of Hie Pacific Coasl Club was second and Bill Smart of the University of British Columbia third. "I was surprised lo McLaren said.
