Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - February 3, 1971, Lethbridge, Alberta _ THI inHUIOOt HKMD 8, Huskiettes end season on winning note Second half too much for Chinooks By LLOYD YAMAGISHI Herald Sports Writer The University of Lethbridge Chinooks couldn't keep up with the torrid pace and bowed to the University of Saskatchewan, Saskatoon, Huskiettes 75-H in Western Canada Inter-Collegiate Women's Basketball action last night. For both clubs the league -By Pat Sullivan NEWEST BRUIN SHAPES Bruins' right winger Ken Hodge at lock of Mike Walton's hair to check its length as Walton donned a Boston uniform to work out with the team for the first time Tuesday. The former Toronto Maple Leafs star became a Bruin Sunday in a three-way swap that included Philadelphia Flyers. Eight teams see action LCI set for tournament SULLY SAYS [OE GARAGIOLA called it the best dinner he has ever attended Tom Lasorda couldn't get over the way he was treated, and Roman Gabriel would have been to Lethbridge a lot sooner had he known what fine people were waiting for him. All three of these gentlemen are in the profession- al world of sports. Garagiola is a former baseball player and now a prominent broadcaster. Lasorda piloted the Spokane Indians to the Pacific Coast League baseball championship and Gabriel is the quarterback for the Los Angeles Rams of the wa- tional Football League. All three have something in common. All have attended the Lethbridge Kinsmen's Sportsman's Din- ner and all went away impressed. They were not merely impressed with the guests the Kinsmen gather each year but with the people who organize and run the dinner each time around and the treatment they each received. Garagiola and Lasorda made their feelings heard at the dinner itself. Gabriel didn't have time to make his feelings felt, not the amount of time he .wanted, anyway. Gabriel, a popular figure on the banquet circuit when the football season ends, thought the Lethbridge dinner would be no different from any other he had attended; "I'm really he said after last year s din- ner "If I had known just how wonderful the people of Lethbridge were I would have been here Thurs- Gabriel arrived Saturday afternoon, two hours be- fore the dinner, but he saw enough in the short time he was here to be impressed. The Lethbridge Collegiate In- stitute Clipper Queens will host a two day invitational basket- ball tournament this coming weekend. Eight teams .will be in action starting Friday and Saturday with all the clubs hoping to emerge as victors. Presently five teams will be Money to burn made difference MINNEAPOLIS (A P) Minnesota Vikings football player Jim Marshall had money to burn when he and several others were isolated on the wintry slopes of Wyo- ming's Bear-tooth Mountain. And that's just what the de- fensive end of the National Football League club did, to help start a fire that helped save the lives of a group of five he was with in the cold, pre-dawn hours. Orioles retreat BALTIMORE (AP) The proverbial groundhog wasn't having any part of Tuesday's cold and windy sunshine, but a heavy dose of ammonia fumes brought office person- nel of Baltimore Orioles pour- ing outside. The gas entered heating ventilation ducts when pipes broke at the ice rink'at Mem- orial Stadium Tuesday, said Jack Dunn, vice-president of the world champion baseball club. Paul Dickson, Marshall's team-mate on the Vikings de- fensive line, told about the in- cident Monday night after the two had flown home from BiU- ings, Mont. They bad been with a group of 16 adventur- ers, one of whom died. "We were trying to find any thing suitable to re- lated Dickson. "So Jim hauled out his checkbook and even took about five bills from his wallet to help start the fire. We also had a few candy wrappers. "I had my souvenir lighter with me, and we touched off a fire. Dickson said he, Marshall, and three others including a teen-age boy clustered to- gether about 2Vi miles from the Top of the World store, after plodding 12 hours through deep drifts 714 miles. "We just couldn't go any said Dickson. He said he was glad to be back to the fireside warmth of his wife and two boys.

From Lethbridge, besides the Clipper Queens, the Winston Churchill Griffins and the Cath- olic Central High School will don their school colors. Two Edmonton teams, the Bonnie Doon and Jasper Place Rebels round out the five while three teams will be chosen from Calgary after an elimin- ation play-off finals has been run-off. The Clipper Queens could be classified as the team to beat as they have yet to taste de- feat this season. At present the Clipper Queens have won four league games, three exhibition games and i r e e tournament contests. hey recently won the Medi- Hat tournament down ing wift Current, Saskatchewan in le finals. The team consists of five vet- rans who made it possible for ie Clipper Queens to finish with an outstanding 24-1 rec- rd last year. The Winston Churchill Grif- ins are not to be counted out owever. Included in their line up will be eight veterans who were m- trumental in giving the Gffi- ins a 15-6 record last year. The Griffins do not possess exceptional height or speed but have depth and experience which is vital for tournament action. When it comes to pick favor- tes, the Bonnie Doon Laacer- :ttes from Edmonton can't be 'ar off. For the past three seasons the Lancerettes have reigned as Edmonton city champs and lave not suffered a league loss in two years. At present they stand ithout a defeat and although they may be the smallest club in their league they can make up for it with their tremendous teamwork and high spirits. Tho other Edmonton club, the Jasper Place Rebels, will taste then- first tournament action in some years. Last year they finished sec- ond in the city of Edmonton league standings and were oust- ed hi the semi finals to gain a right to enter the provincial finals. Tournament tickets will be sold at apiece which will be good for all 11 games. Garagiola, Lasorda and Gabriel are only three of the long list of athletes and sportsmen who have at- tended the dinner in its 18-year history. Saturday evening the Lethbridge Exhibition Pa- vilion will be the scene of the 18th annual dinner and once again the guest list reads like a who's who in the world of sports. Heading the list is Sugar Ray Robinson, a five- time world champion in the middleweight ranks, Tom Gorman, an umpire's umpire in the National Base- ball League, Rusty Staub of the Montreal Expos, Johnny Bower of the National Hockey League, Don Meredith, commentator on ABC's Monday night foot- ball games and a former quarterback with the Dallas Cowboys, rodeo champion Arnold Haraga and master of ceremonies Ernie Afaganis. The celebrities look after the entertainment end of the dinner while the Kinsmen take care of the preparation and the work involved. And believe me, it's not an easy job. One of the functions of the Kinsmen each year is to select and honor an athlete of the year and a sportsman, a big moment many southern Albertans have come to enjoy over the years. The athlete of the year receives the Ron Makar- enko Memorial trophy in honor of the late Lethbridge native son who in his broadcasting post was a driving force behind sports in Lethbridge and southern Al- berta. The sportsman of the year will receive the Tom Foley Memorial award in honor of the one-time Lethbridge Herald sports editor who went on to be- come one of Canada's outstanding radio and televi- sion commentators before his life was snuffed out in an automobile accident in Toronto. The stage is set for another dinner. The count- down to supper is three days and then another, it is hoped, successful Kinsmen Sportsman's Dinner will be history. One quick note It seems while I was trying to inform fans in Lethbridge where some of our for- mer Sugar Kings are now plying their trade I forgot a couple. One in particular was Randy Maxwell who took in the Pittsburgh Penguins camp -with Jerry LeGrandeur before the start of this season. Randy is playing hockey with the Quesnel Kan- garoos, and that's not in Australia, but in B.C. I hope you can find it in your heart to forgive me Colleen. schedule Is now complete. The Huskiettes are guarsn-i teed at least a tie lor first place in the conference with the UBC Thunderettes. UBC has two more games to go and must win both games against the Victoria Vikingettes. Last night a small crowd was on hand at the Civic Sports Centre hoping for a Saskatoon upset. The Chinooks played tremen- dous ball in the first half as they kept up with the powerful Huskiette club. At half-time they trailed the visitors 29-27, but like Monday night the second half was their downfall. The fine Huskiette club would not budge an inch on defence and entertained the spectators with fine outside shooting, which eventually cracked the Chinook's defensive wall. Leona Voth was held to 12 points last night while Linda Dow chipped in nine for the Chinooks. For the U of S Heather Wit- zel clinched the league scoring race as she hooped 22 big points. Monday night Witzel came up with a 27 point total. Teammates Debbie Shogan and Sherril Roberts chipped in with 14 and 13 points respec- tively. In Calgary the University of Saskatchewan Cougettes closed their basketball season with a 40-31 victory over University of Calgary Dinnies Tuesday. Regina led Calgary 22-10 at half time. Jan Sundmark paced the Cougettes with 12 points while Irene Wallace and Linda Vail each added eight. Raelene MacDonald scored 12 points and Susan Clow added five for Calgary. University of British Colum- bia Thunderettes deleated Uni- versity of Manitoba 63-35 Tuesday night. SASKATOON 74 LETHBRIOSE Players upset with Bishop VICTORIA (CP) The Pres- ident of the British Columbia Junior Hockey League has stepped into a dispute between general manager Eric Bislrop of the Victoria Cougars and a group of rebellious players. Bishop fired coach Ron Max- Borden loses in A finals CALGARY (CP) Kay Baldwin of Edmonton won the A section of the Alberta wom- en's curling championship Tuesday night and moved to within one game of the title. Baldwin defeated Darlene Borden of Calgary 8-5. The de- feat dropped Borden, the south- ern Alberta champion, to the B section final against Peggy Bentley of Yellowknife, N.W.T Bentley advanced to the B fi nal by eliminating Mary Sop kow of Spirit River 12-4. In earlier rounds, Baldwin defeated Bentley 8-3 while th Borden rink downed Sopkow 12-7. Baldwin broke up a tigh game in the A final with three in the" sixth end when Borde missed :a .last-rock takeout leaving her opponent a draw fo three. well Monday and said he would landle the team himself. Max- veil would become assistant eneral manager. When 16 players walked out of a team meeting to protest he firing, Bishop said they had until noon today to return to the fold. He said the Cougars would have a team in tjew Westmin- ter tonight for a scheduled [ame against the Royals. Tuesday night, however, eague president Dr. Arnold said from his Pentic- on home that he will travel to Victoria today to meet players, management and Maxwell 'and attempt to arbitrate the situation." And he said tonight's sched- uled Victoria-New Westminster game has been postponed. The Cougars hold an eight- point lead over second-place Vancouver Centennials in the coast division of the League, but Bishop said the team has deteriorated since the begia- ning of the season.

Jim Baird flying high for Kainai Sharpshooting Jimmy Baird and the Pincher Creek Sulphur Kings are the stars of the show in the Foothills Hockey League. Latest statistics show Baird of the Kainai Chiefs playing lide and seek in the indivi- dual scoring race. He's rifled tome 54 goals and assisted on 49 other markers for 103 points in 21 games. That gives him a huge 49- point lead over the two run- ners up, Lloyd Pawluk of Bellevue and teammate Stu Healy. The Sulphur Kings, mean- time, continue to sizzle. They have reeled off 18 victories in 20 games for 36 points and an eight point lead over Belle- vue in the battle for first place. Kainai is third with 23 points. League badman is Pawluk, the ex Lethbridge Sugar King, who has spent 118 min- utes in the penalty box.
