I can't help feeling they did not do their homework before deciding the "Stan Siwik Pool" would not be appropriate for the new north Lethbridge pool. Alderman Cam Barnes said that using one person's name could become a touchy subject. It was also said that it may set a precedent for the future. To me it sounds more like a cop out. There is no question that a great many people are connected with swimming in the city People such as Bob and Ursula Kasting, or Gord Hoselton or Bob Emerson just to name a few But it is because of the 25 years of unselfish giving from Siwik that has brought about these peoples' concern about swimming in Lethbridge. When I first heard the suggestion that the pool be named after Siwik I was elated. I hadn't, up until that time, given a name much thought I completely disregarded the handle North Lethbridge Family Pool You might just as well call it the Hardieville Hot Springs No, I thought the name Stan Siwik Pool carried with it a dis- tinction. I don't know how many of you realize it but Stan Siwik is recognized by swimming associations all over the world. This man's knowledge of swimming and his coaching abilities are respected by every swimming nation in the world. He is one of very few people honored by the International Swimming Association (there is a much more fancy name for the group but it escapes me at the moment) However, I'm sure you get the message. Siwik was a judge at the 1968 Olympics in Mexico For some possibly selfish reason, I felt that there would be bttle hesitation in naming the pool after Siwik. Instead, we find it not just shelved, but disposed of. Only one alderman, or should I say alderperson in respect to Mrs. Ferguson, stated he would name it the Stan Siwik pool were it up to him Vaughan Hembroff. Personally, I would deem it an honor to have, as a citizen of Lethbridge, such a man as Siwik to name a pool after. No, I called it a cop out and I feel it is. The only people, I would think, who would argue the selection of the name Stan Siwik Pool, would be those not connected with swimming. Those involved in swimming owe more to the man than just having a pool named after him can repay Ask them and you will see. Fortunately for Ray Morton of the Canada Winter Games the weather has turned cold. Morton is the favorite in Saturday's High Noon showdown for the Kinsmen Club's Skate-A-Thon. For the Me of me I can't see why, unless it will be all downhill. But, at least now with the thermometer at its present cool setting, Morton has no fear of falling through the ice. It will be thick enough' to hold even him. Word has it that Mayor Andy Anderson will be in the race as well as yours truly along with other brilliant skaters. I have all the respect in the world for the mayor and the position he holds in our community, but Saturday he will see only the back of me, and from a distance I might add as will all the others. The Kinsmen Club will turn the proceeds over to various groups in the city, so remember Saturday noon on the ice at Henderson Lake. And for those of you who don't know Ray Morton, he's the guy who looks just like Bill Johnson, cut off at the knees. CHRYSLER HUMP-TOM Will car leasing save you money?

(AP) National League club owners approved unanimously Thursday the sale of San Diego Padres to hamburger tycoon Ray A. Kroc. It took the owners 90 minutes to reach Hie decision, apparently ending months of controversy over the club's ownership. League president Charles Feeney said the owners were assured the Padres would re- main in San Diego "for the foreseeable future." Kroc, 71-year-old board chairman of McDonald's hamburger chain, was reported to have paid million for the franchise. He was not present at Thursday's meeting, but was represented by a lawyer. The action ended on-again, off-again attempts to move the money-losing Padres to Washington, D.C. Feeney said the league felt no political pressure in the efforts of Joseph Danzansky to buy the Padres and move them to the U.S. capital. Feeney said the club owners sent a letter to Kroc and Padres owner C. Arnholt Smith confirming their action. "The National League of Professional Baseball Clubs has today approved Mr. Ray Kroc as a purchaser of the franchise and assets of the San Diego the letter said. It continued that the owners have "consented to the pro- posed transfer of the Padres'1 membership to Mr. Kroc for a corporation of which he is sole (JWIrKI. Feeney declined to confirm the SlZ-million figure, but Kroc had said earlier that it was "in the ballpark." Smith agreed last May to sell the Padres for million to Danzansky, but on the condition that the team would move to Washington. The city of San Diego then went to court, and Danzansky Jack warns Miller HONOLULU (AP) Jack Nicklaus returned to the pro golf tour Thursday and issued a stern warning to streaking Johnny Miller a sparkling seven-under-par 65 in the first round of the Hawaiian Open golf tournament "I came to play Nick- laus said after tying Dwight Nevil for the top spot hi a round that eventually was halted because of rain with about two dozen players still out on the course. The players who were unable to complete their rounds including Miller will finish this morning and go into second round play immediately. Nicklaus, playing in a rain that ranged from a soft, warm, tropical shower to a downpour, btrdied seven of the last 10 holes on the yard seaside layout that was dotted by pools and puddles. failed to meet a deadline set by the league for assurances of protection from damages. Feeney thanked Danzansky Thursday for his interest, and said he believes the capital will have a baseball franchise before too long. San Diego Mayor Pete Wilson said that Kroc had promised, with a handshake, to keep the Padres in San Diego for at least six years. Kroc pledged publicly to pay personally any indemnity if the Padres should move. "If I'm president of a corpo- ration and sign as president and haven't got the guts to involve my personal wealth, I'm not much of a Kroc said in San Diego. Wilson also promised that San Diego would dismiss its million in lawsuits against the National League, Washington, D.C., and Danzansky as soon as the approval was given. Kroc said all papers on the deal have been signed and he will make the first payment of more than million to Smith Friday. The financially troubled Smith has been hit by a bar- rage of government and private lawsuits in the last year.

Sopers are confident, they are also very good MONCTON, N.B (CP) Louise and Barry Soper of Vancouver are well on the way to winning their fourth Canadian senior dance figure- skating title, and they know it "Our whole training program this year is geared for the world championships. We've planned it so that we will peak physically just when the world finals said Barry after the couple practically clinched the dance title Thursday by winning the set-pattern section of the three-part event They won the compulsory dance Wednesday during the opening of the 63rd Canadian figure-skating championships here. The free dance is set for tonight and even the Soper's rival team of Barbara Ber- ezowski of Toronto and David Porter of Port Perry, Ont, admit that it will take a few years before anybody will defeat the Vancouver duo. The Berezowski-Porter team is second to the Sopers in both completed events. Both Barry, a former school teacher, and Louise, a former dental hygienist, left their jobs last year to concentrate on placing high in the world finals, or possibly even winning the event someday. "It takes years to build up for the world says Louise. "And it's just not the expertise, you also need to be known internationally and most of all accepted." NEED BACKING "You have to have the back- ing of your says Barry with the urgent drive of any 25-year-old with a goal, a goal to bring Canada a world gold medal in the dance com- petition.

They finished ninth in the 1973 world championships, but they plan to finish in the top five in Munich, West Germany, March 5-10. Barry explains the plan this way "You see, if we finish in the top five at Munich, we will re- ceive an automatic bye for the 1975 world championships. This will allow Canada to send three teams to the worlds instead of two." Under current international Weekend Windfall FiitoMon.
