Lethbridge Herald (Newspaper) - February 2, 1973, Lethbridge, Alberta Friday, February 2, 1973 - THE LETHBRIDGE HERALD - H Johnson still not happy with club ruins took it out on the Leafs By THE CANADIAN PRESS Tom Johnson came up with a negative approach-earlier this week to spur his Boston Bruins lethargic ways. The Bruins' coach juggled his lines, ridiculed two of his ace defencemen after the National Hockey League all-star game at New York, and left the general impression he was fed up with the defending Stanley Cup champions. The team's leadership on Response to the Lethbridge Fish and Game Association's fly-tying program has been good. Each course starts at 2 p.m. on Sundays at the clubrooms on 9th Ave. S. You may attend one course, or as many as you wish. George Woo of the city was re-elected president of the Lethbridge Trap Club, at the organization's annual meeting held last Sunday. Jim McLean is vice-president; Mary Woo the secretary and Boris Snyder the treasurer. Directors elected were: Alex and Salvador Arias, Ray Schuler and Ron Wobick. Discovery of an irrigation reservoir for lunker pike has been the big strike made by local anglers in recent weeks. The pike fishery is known as Lost Lake Resei--voir. It is located four miles east of Enchant, two miles south and one mile east. Six to 12-pound pike are said to be not uncommon at Lost Lake. Lost Lake itself was nothing more than prairie sod until the central block of the Bow River Project was completed. To date, it has been designated only on the official county map. Lost Lake, however, became a part of the irrigation canal system almost immediately after the project was completed. Reports show that the deepest part of the lake now reaches down to the 16 to 20-foot mark during the winter months. Majority of the pike, however, are taken at the six to eight-foot level, with some right adjacent to the shoreline. While it has been a top notch pike fishery throughout, the activity has been kept fairly quiet by the neighborhood. It has provided top notch fishing spring, summer and fall. And, in some spots, you can step out of your vehicles, onto the highway and you are into good fishing. Anglers are now looking for perch and white-fish in the lake. ANDY CAPP ice-defenccman Bobby Orr and centre Phil Esposito-had been flagging and so were Boston's hopes of overtaking East Division-leading Montreal Cana-diens. Orr, Esposito and the rest of the Bruins responded to the negative approach Thursday night-albeit at the expense of the hapless Toronto Maple Leafs-to register a 5-2 victory. It marked only the third win in eight starts for Boston and with Montreal's 3-3 tie at St. Louis against the Blues left the Bruins still 10 points behind the Canadiens and six behind New York Rangers, idle Thursday night. Esposito ended a scoring slump with three goals that lifted Boston to a 4-1 lead after two periods and Orr, answering critics who said a knee operation had slowed him, showed flashes of his former self while scoring once and setting up three other goals.

The Pronghorns held a 1-0 first period lead and a slim 2-1 margin before the LCC rapped in two unanswered goals in the final period. Blake Cameron, Cam Hod-gen and Jerry Veres tallied for the LCC while Lloyd Yamagishi and Wally Tunow replied for the Pronghorns. The Pronghorns also picked up four of the seven minor penalties called during the three periods. Minor hockey The Cougars scored in each of the three periods and posted a 4-0 shutout over the Eagles in Bantam "B" action Thursday night. Randy Horhoser, Mitch Frei-5en. Bob Schlegle and Rich Smith tallied single markers in the win. Angeles Kings 3 and Chicago Black Hawks 5, New York Islanders 3. Orr and Esposito combined to set up a goal by Wayne Cash-man who beat veteran Toronto goaltender Jacques Plante with the game only 31 seconds old. It marked the third time this year and 19th time in his career Esposito has scored three goals in a game and increased his goal-scoring total to 33. The two maligned aces clucked reporters later in the Boston dressing room, but Johnson owned up that it was "the Esposito line and one of the defencemen turned it around for us." "We played a lot better than we have been, and we intend to improve before Saturday's game here with New York. We came out a lot better, wanting to hit." Asked about persisting rumors that Orr's left knee, which prevented him from playing early in the year, had deteriorated to the point it would require another examination soon, Johnson replied: "Nobody has told me anything about it." He said the Perry Sound, Ont., native "hasn't been playing really that badly. It's just that he has not been as spectacular as everyone has come to expect." Frank Mahovlich's 26th goal started Montreal's comeback from a 2-0 deficit and the Big M climaxed his night's effort by setting up Yvan Cournoyer's ty-, ing score with a minute remaining in the game. It was Mahovlich's 500th career assist. Bill Flett scored twice for the hometown Flyers, his second into an empty Vancouver net with 1:08 showing on the clock in the final period. New York Raiders managed to cool off Alberta's Jim Hani-son Thursday night. Harrison, who set a pro scoring record Tuesday picking up 1Q points in an 11-3 romp over the Raiders, was held to two goals and one assist Thursday. But the Oilers still prevailed, 3-5, over New York on the strength of defenceman Bob Wall's key play as the Raiders took the play from Alberta late in the contest at Edmonton. With New York mounting its first serious offence of the two-game series in the Western Canada city, Wall trapped a clearing Raider shot and drilled a 55-footer behind startled goal-tender Pete Donnelly at 17:14 of the third period. Elsewhere, New England Whalers regained first place in the Eastern Division by edging Houston Aeros 5-4 in overtime while Cleveland Crusaders fell one point off the pace by skating to a 2-2 overtime tie with Ottawa Nationals. Quebec Les Nordiques staved off a late Minnesota rally for a 4-2 win over the Fighting Saints. Alberta is at Winnipeg against the Jets tonight while Ottawa visits Chicago Cougars, the Whalers are at Los Angeles Sharks and Cleveland entertains Philadelphia Blazers.

SIGNS FOR PRO TRACK NEW YORK CAP) - Bob Hayes of Dallas Cowboys in the "Daddy ivortt be coming back" Clemente's son foresaw tragedy SAN JUAN, P.R. (AP) - On the tragic night a month ago that Roberto Clemente died in the crash of a mercy plane carrying relief supplies to the victims of the Nicaraguan earthquake, Roberto Jr., 7, was seized by a strange premonition. "Grandpa," he told his maternal grandfather who was keeping him for the evening. "Daddy is leaving for Nicaragua, but he is not coming back." In another section of the Carolina district, where the all-star outfielder of Pittsburgh Pirates was born, Clemente's father experienced a similarly frightening vision. "I had tins terrible dream," the father said. "I saw the plane crash, and Roberto go down with it." Clemente's beautiful widow, Vera Christiana, spoke softly and unemotionally of Ihese eerie pre-crash warnings Thursday as she sat on a sofa in the living room of the House on the Hill. Everybody in Puerto Rico is familiar with the House on the Hill. That's where Roberto Clemente lived. His residence is as well-known here as tlie White House in the United States. He was the idol of this tropical island. The tliree Clemente sons-all named after their famous daddy, but with different middle names, Roberto Zabala .Jr.. 7; Roberto Luis, 6, and Roberto Enrique, 3-contented themselves by watchin.i cartoons on a 23-inch color TV. Maids bustled around the kitchen and Mrs. Clemente, dressed in a black pant-suit with a black turban on her head and long gold earrings dangling from her ears, stoically talked of the difficult period of readjustment. "I keep busy," she said. "Roberto's heart was in the sports city he had planned for the boys and girls of Puerto Rico, 1 am trying to carry on with his wishes. "The money for it is coming in well. There are campaigns in Pittsburgh, Miami, New York and other cities. I have thousands of telegrams and letters from people who loved Roberto. I have just begun to try to answer them." Most of Roberto's trophies are in a special room in the basement. "t will show .you," she said. Silver and bronze trophies by Hi? hundreds glistened from be-Wnd their glass cabinets. Plaques covered almost every available space on the walls. "Roberto loved Ms trophies. There are others in the closets upstr.irs and just this week we received a big ca.i'an of 17 trophies which came from Roberto's 3,000th hit. I haven't had a chance to open it. "Roberto was proud of his trophies-not so much because cf himself but because of the recognition he thought it brought Puerto Rico and Latin ballplayers. "He was a very unselfish man, not vain at all. His life was devoted to helping others. He got a lot of rings. They're all in a drawer. We tried to get him. to wear his 1971 World Series ring. He did for a week, and then went back to an old ring he liked-one he got in an all-star game, I forgot'which." Roberto played in 12. It was while touring the trophy room that the composed widow, a magnificent woman, got to talking about the events preceding the fatal crash. "You know, the plane was supposed to leave at 4 o'clock in the morning," she said. "It didn't get off until 9:20 at night. There was a lot of trouble with the plane."
