y, February 4, 1971 THE LETHBRIDGE HERAID Magnussen still has crack at medal Austrian champion will be hard to catch By I1UUCE LEVETT Canadian Press Sports Editor SAPPORO, Japan (CP) When champion figure skater Beatrix Schuba of Austria said she had the Olympic gold medal locked up, the words sort of hung in the air. But the 21-year-old shop- keeper's daughter didn't waste the don't think any- one can catch me" was QIC way she put it. Then she went on the ice and turned in a perfect perform- ance, unofficial figures showed Friday. The nine judges rated her first 'diree compulsory school figures at the top of the list, giving her a total of 9.0 or- lowest possible to the placings. The ordinals are more impor- tant than the scoring lower the ordinals the higher the posting. With the point sys- tem, it's the other way around. Maintain eight-point spread Bruins have added defence fly THE CANADIAN PRESS During (lie last few seasons, Boston 3nuns have been noted for their high scoring and hard lulling. This year they've added a new it may become fashionable in Bos- ton for years hence. For the second consecutive nigtit Thursday, the Biuins' de- fence was near perfect as they beat Minnesota North Stare 6-1 and maintained an eight-point lead over New York Rangers in the National Hockey League's East Division.

BREAKFAST Yanks qualify with 5-3 win SAPPORO, Japan (CP) The United States hockey team became the fourth squad to qualify for the championship tournament at the VVinler Olym- pics by scoring a 5-3 victory over Switzerland Friday. The Americans join Czecho- slovakia, Sweden and Russia in the Class A battle for the gold medal while Switzerland joined Japan and Yugoslavia in Uie B group. The Czeclis and the Swedes qualified for Class A play wiih wins Thursday over Japan and Yugoslavia respectively while the Russians drew an automatic berth in Hie class because of their victory in last year's world championships. The final two positions in each group were lo be decided later Friday with the winners of the West Germany-Poland and Fin- land-iSonvay clashes qualifying for Class A with the losers rele- gated to Class B. U.S. coach Murray William- son said he had not expected I he Americans to control the game against Switzerland as much as they did. The U.S. pep pered Swiss goalie Gerard Rigo- let with 59 shots while Switzer- land had only 18 at American goalie Mike Outran. "I thought we would not have as much trouble as we said Williamson. "It turned out to be a (ough game." He said that he was happy with the control the U.S. exhib- ited but had been concerned about the Americans being too anxious around the net and con- sequently missing good scoring opportunities. The Americans will face Swe- den Saturday in their first en- counter in the six-team round- robin affair. Coach Williamson says his club will be underdogs for the rest of the Class A competition. He said he was not impressed with the Swedes in their win over Yugoslavia "but I know they are capable of an explosive game." "I think their style is a little bit like ours, but wilh thsir greater experience it will be real lough and it would be au upset if we were lo win." The Americans held period leads of 2-1 and 3-2 and the Swiss tied the game at cf the third period. But Tim Shee- hy's second goal of the game 69 seconds later sewed up Uie win I for the U.S. The night before goalie Gerry Chcevers and his team-mates shut out tlie Rangers in New York 2-0.

It was a costly night of NHL action as the Bruins lost Ken Hodge with a fractured ankle, Montreal's Terry Harper went out with a cut hand and King? goalie Rogalien Vachon suffered a knee injury. "II was a greal defensive said Bruins coach Tom Johnson. "Everybody out there gave us a great game." The Bruins began slressing defence in framing camp. They have been working at it ever since, and the success has been obvious. They have lost only Iwo ol their last 37 games and Johnston and Cheevers are in contention for the Vezina Tro- phy. The trophy goes to the goalies of the NI1L team who allow the least goals in a sea- son. The Bruins have allowed 109 goals in 51 games, second only to Chicago Black Hawks who al- lowed in one less conlesl. The Bruins are not hurling i the offensive department either, trailing only the Rangers in goals scored, 215-207. "Last said goalie John- ston, who had to make only 15 saves against the North Stars, "we'd be leading five or six to one and the game would end up 7-3 or 8-4. This year when we get i five or six-to-one lead, that's all Ihey goal. "Sure, we're aware we're in contortion for UK Vezina, but every time somebody mentions it we lei in four or five Uie nexl day." GOALIE BITES BACK Despilc UK stress on defence, Johnston has become somewhal of an offensive threat this year, assisting on three goals. His as- sist on Johnny Bucyk's goal in the second period Thursday tied an NHL record for assists by goallenders, set in by Ber- nie Parcnl, then wilh Philadel- phia and tied earlier this season by Montreal's Ken Dryden. Johnston was kidded about having a bonus clause in his contract for scoring a certain number of points, as do many NHL players. "Yeah, I got a bonus Johnston replied. "One Bruins T-shirt for every point after five." It didn't take the Bruins long [o get their offence in gear ogainst the North Stars. Fred Stanfield lipped in a Bobby Orr slap shol after 47 seconds of play and Wayne Cashman made il 2-0 less tlian a minute later when he banged in a rebound, Minnesota's Danny Grant seoi'ed on a power play, but Uie Bruins added two goals in each of the last two periods as they extended their unbeaten string lo 12 games.

Julie Holmes of the United Slates was in second place and a Hungarian girl, Zsuzsa At massy, was third. Miss Schuba is the best In the world in tracing figures but compared wilh the others, she is nol slrong in the freestyle. Excellent freestylers like Miss Magnussen are counting on a good enough showing in the six compulsory figures lo win a medal by outclassing Beatrix in the ballet on ice. Bui each segment counts equally in Lhe final analysis. In six nalional, two Europeans and one world championship, Miss Schuba built up such an over- whelming margin in the com- pulsories that no one could catch her. The firsl full day of compel! tion In the Games Friday went prelly much according to form. Ard Schenk, the 27-year-old Flying Dutchman, won the speed skating gold medal as even-body expected he would and appeared a solid bet to win three and possibly four gold medals before Ihe 11- day corapelilions end Feb. 13, HOLDS SIX RECORDS He already holds six world records and missed an Olympic record by 1 3 seconds when, half-blinded by snow he sped the distance in His world mark for tins is Shy Vyacheslav Vedenin, 8 30-y e a r -o 1 d Russian soldier, showed a strong fmishiiig kick to win the 30-kilometre cross- country gold medal over a well- treed, undulating course in one hour 36 minutes 31.15 seconds. Vedenin, who ducked report- ers after his win, is only .the second non-Scandinavian to win the event. Norway, the country which took the team title four years ago at Grenoble, France, picked up more points than the Rus- sians Friday by sweeping the four silver and bronze medals in the two finals and leads the standing wilh 20 points while Russia and the Nclherlands each has 11. The unofficial point system is based on scoring 10-5- 4-3-2-1 for the firsl six finishers in each final. Germany showed its power in the bobsledding and luge com- petition. A Wesl German pair held a commanding lead after two heats in the two-man liobs, with Canadian teams 17th and 20Ui. Easl Germans were lead- ing in the men's and women's luge singles after two heats, and were headed for e sweep of all tlie medals. NORWAY COLLECTS Norwegians Roar Gronvold and Sten Stensen won the silver and bronze medals in tlie distance equal to 3Va miles. Their countrymen, Paal Tjidum and Jobs Harviken, were well-frozen after trekking in.6 miles in the cross-country race as Ihey nailed down silver and bronze medals. Wolfgang Zimmerer and Peter Ulzschneider of West Ger- many got off to a fast start in the two-man bobsled champion- ship. They clocked the fastest lines in each of the first two heats totalling and were favorites going into the final two runs Saturday. Canadians Bob Storey of Ot- awa and Mike Hartley of To- ronto stood 17th in the 21-sled field wilh for the two runs and Hans Gehrig of Mont- real and Andy Faulds of Bur- lington, Onl., were 20th wilh Wolfgang Scheidel.

Thornton, attired in a splen- did creation designed by an- other Argo player, Dave Rai- mey, also wore a brown leather purse as an accessory to what he described as "an Edwardian midi-vest of black satin with panls to match."
