Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - December 30, 1972, Lethbridge, Alberta 52 THE LPHDRtBOE HERALD Saturday, December 30, 197J Clicovers continues to look sharp Orr wasn't upset about his engagement By THE CANADIAN PRESS If Bobby Orr was upset over the disclosure by hia t eam- mates Friday that he was en- aged to a 2-1 -year-oM Detroit school teacher, it wasn't client Minneapolis. Orr, Boston Bruins' super de- fersceman and considered by many the greatest player in the game today, scored the Dinner in a 2-0 victory over Minnesota and just get ling his sec- ond in the closing seconds when Ms rink-length shot caromed off the goalpost of the empty North Stars goal. But the key to the Boston win, that moved the Bruins into first place in the N ational Hockey League East Division, was the brilliant goaltending of Eddie Johnston, a much-maligned vet- eran carrying the burden of the b acks topping chores t his sca- son.

SULLY SAYS -By Pat Sullivan WOULD like to make some changes in our calendar year, beginning now. One change, in particular, that I would make would greatly affect the holiday which we "ill cel- ebrate Sunday evening and into the early hours of .Monday morning. New Year's Eve. and the ceremonies that sur- round New Year's itself, would come under a great change if I had my way. Given the opportunity, New Year's would fall-on April 1 and January 1 would mark Fool's Now, stop and think about it for a moment. On what other day of the year do we fool our- selves and try, a great deal of the time in vain, to fool others. It has to be New Year's with our resolutions. I've got something haven't 1? You hope it isn't catching. If I had one main resolution it would be to forget about New Year's resolutions. Let's face it. prepare ourselves all year for a big New Year's celebration. Many of us tend to coast through Christmas anticipating a knock 'em down, drag 'em out bash at New Year's. So, why not shift the calendar somewhat, main- tain the same pattern of preparation, but instead of kicking off the first day of a new year with a bang, save it for April Just think. You could enjoy Christmas more, know- ing that you had four months instead of four ?.i. least it feels like there is only four days between get ready for the next bash. You could concentrate on all your resolutions for Fool's Day and have a ball. All the things you would give up would be back in next day. After all, you were weren't you? That diet you were going on. Great, it would last one day and with a clear conscience you could strap on the old feed bag the following day. You could quit drinking, smoking and carousing and if, would hardly cramp your style. Will-power, I'm sure, could you for one day. Yes, I really think we should make this particu- lar adjustment. Eight before is here. But in case a change does not be sure to bring in the new with a hardy boost from the old. Make 1973 an even better ye'ar than 1972 for you and yours. wish T could pijf- "A Happy and Prosperous N'ew Year to all of You" into different words. This time-worn cliche is in need of a face lift. However, when you think about it, it does say it all rather nicely.
