But Helton enjoyed a banner season as an individual So good in fact was his year, that he was voted Canada's best lineman.

OPPORTUNITY FOR YOUNG MAN LEADING MEN'S WEAR STORE IN LETHBRIDGE DESIRES A BRIGHT YOUNG MAN The main requisites ore a willingness to learn and ability to meet the public. For a personal interview please reply staling experience, marital status, etc., to Box 107, The Lethbridge Herald J TORONTO (CP) - Byron Dyce of Jamaica, who won the U.S. Amateur Athletic Union indoor mile championsliip last year in New York, will defend his title tonight when an international field faces the starter's gun for the 1,000 yards at the Toronto Star Maple Leaf Indoor Games. Polish Olympic star, Andrzej Kupcyk, is expected to force the pace. He placed seventh in the final of the 800 metres at the Olympic Games in Munich and won the 1.000-yard event last Friday at the Millroso Games in New York. Also challenging will be Josef Plachy of Czechoslovakia, the reigning U.S. national champion. He finished second to Dyce in last year's meet here. Among others in the race will be Brian McElroy of Villanova University and Juris Luzins of the U.S. Mai-ine Corps. The highlight of the meet will fall on the pole-vaulting competition in which Steve Smith may have first place wrapped up. BROKE OWN RECORD "Tins guy is unbelievable," says Ken Twigg, Maple Leaf Games director, speaking of Smith, who broke his own world indoor record at the Millrose Games with a vault of 18 feet Vt inch. "Just after setting the record in New York, he said he would be shooting for 18 feet 6 inches in Toronto," Twigg said. "And he has his opposition completely psyched out at this point." Opposing Smith will be Kjell Isaksson of Sweden, Dave Roberts and Tom Blab' of the United States and Canadians Bruce Simpson and Bob Raftis of Toronto. Isaksson held the world indoor record at 17 feet 10 y2 inches until Smith broke it two weeks ago and went on to a mark over 18 feet. Claude Ferrange of Montreal and Bruce McLaren of London, Ont., also rate considerable attention. Ferrange won the high jump at the Millrose Games and McLaren was first in the two-mile race. McLaren is entered in the three-mile event, against Kip-chonge Keino of Kenya and Frank Shorter of the U.S. Keino's was the 1968 Olympic gold medallist. A rematch between Henry Szordykowski of Poland and Bob Wheeler of Duke University is in the offing for the mile race. They finished the event at the Millrose Games in a shoving duel. Wheeler placed first, but was later disqualified. Mike Benoit cf Kenya and Marty Liquor! of New York are also entered in the mile. A strong field for the women's 600 yards includes Cheryl Toussaint of New York, Brenda Walsh of Edmonton and Abby Hoffman of Toronto. Miss Toussaint holds the Ca- nadian open record of 1:21.6, and Miss Walsh owns the Canadian native indoor record of 1:22.9. Ottawa's Glenda Reiser, Christa Merton of West Germany and Nancy Shafer of the United States are top entries in the women's 1,000 yard race. nuiiiiiiiiiiiiiiifiiiii SPORT bashi of Taber 7-6 in the first draw, nipped Lloyd Woolley of Calgary 6-5 in the second. Garrett, on the other hand, was forced an extra end before slipping past Ron Northcott of Calgary 8-7. Earlier Garrett had bounced Ken Marr of Youngstown 9-4. On the B side of the ledger Shimbashi stopped Ken Ritchie of Canmore 13-6 while Lyon got past Lyle Davis of Lethbridge 9-7. Davis lost an extra end game to Geier in the afternoon draw. Jim Peterson of Milo stayed alive with a 12-9 win over Marr while Gary Tonnes of Calgary took a lopsided 19-5 verdict from Bennett. Ritchie, Davis, Marr and Bennett were eliminated from further play. In other first draw games, Woolley took just 10 ends to dispose of Ritchie 10-4 while Northcott, one of the favorites before the playdowns opened, thumped Peterson 12-4 in 10 ends. Tron-nes was the victim of an 8-7 extra end loss to Reed. Play continues today and Saturday with draws at 2:30 and 7;30. Sunday will see the A-B final go at 10:30 a.m. with a sudden-death showdown set for 2 p.m., if needed. Kramer was to meet Talbot in one semi-final match this afternoon while the other game saw Seney playing Garrett. Archer shares Honolulu lead HONOLULU (AP) - George Archer says he's at least a month away from playing good. But the 6-foot-6 one time ranchhand had a share of the lead going into today's second round in the $200,000 Hawaiian Open golf tournament. "I've changed everything around, the way I'm hitting the ball off the tee," Archer said. "It was just awful. "Now I'm doing the right thing. But I don't feel comfortable. It'll take time. I'm at least a month away from playing the way I want to." He managed a four-under-par 68 in Thursday's first round to tie Tom Watson and old pro Gay Brewer, who has a habit of Canucks come back DRUMHELLER, Alta. (CP) - Calgary Canucks scored five unanswered goals in the third period to defeat Drumheller Falcons 7-3 in an Alberta Junior Hockey League game Thursday night. Dale Eloschuk scored two goals to lead the Canucks and singles were added by Ian MacPhee, Mark Lomenda, Dean Magee, Roger Bourque and Warren Cook. Ken Nelson with two and Brian Wecker with one scored for the Falcons who took seven of 13 minor penalties. Calgary outshot Drumheller 41-20. whining away from the mainland United States, for the lead in this rich event that offers a $40,000 first prize. Tied at 69, just one stroke back and three under par on the 7,154-yard Waialae Country Club course, were Doug Sanders, Lanny Wadkms, Gibby Gilbert and Takaaki Kono, a 120-pound Japanese. Arnold Palmer, trying to shake persistent putting troubles, defending titleholder Grier Jones and a half-dozen others were at 70. Toronto's George Knudson was well back in the field and in danger of missing the halfway cut after today's 18 holes. Knudson had an outgoing 39 Thursday and an 18-hole count of 76. Lee Trevino, who had a 61 in Wednesday's pro-am, slipped to a par 72. He had to birdie the last hole to do that. Also in the big group at the figure was Australian veteran Bruce Crampton, already the winner of two tour titles this season. Archer, like Brewer a former Masters champion, has won four titles and more than $300,-000 in the last two seasons. But he said he got into some bad habits doing it. "It's mostly on my driving," he said. "I got my right foot in the bucket, and I had to aim right and come over it and fall back and sometimes fall down and it was just awful. "It finally caught up with me late last season. Now I'm trying to get it straightened out."
