Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - February 5, 1972, Lethbridge, Alberta 12 THE IETHBRIDCE HERALD Saturday, February 5, IS HE REALLY THAT BIG DADDY? Young Michael Minor, four-year old son of Mr. and Mrs. Tim Minor of Lethbridge, could not believe his eyes when he had the opport- unity to shake hands with 6'8" Dolph Schayes. A former star of National Basket- ball League, Schayes is in Lethbridge for tonight's Kinsmen Sportsman's Dinner.________ Drop Saskatoon 57-24 lougars win easily REGINA (Special) The Lethbridge Catholic Central High School Cougars rolled into Regina with their teeth and daws razor-blade sharp for the annual Luther Invita- tional Basketball Tournament here this weekend. The Cougars stunned some jam-packed basketball enthusiasts trouncing Walter Murray High School of Saska- toon. 57-24 in the tourney Opener Friday night. The Cougars, who were seed- ed number one among the outer-province teams, were just too powerful for the Sas- katoon squad. "It was the biggest mismatch of the tourney so com- mented Cougars' coach Dean Dahl. "I sat through the other games and our contest can't compare with the close en- counters staged added Dahl. The Cougars were by far the superior club between the two as Dahl used his second string most of the 32 minutes of play. Dahl's charges racked up an early 17-5 first quarter lead and took a commanding 32-9 margin after the second. By the end of the third quar- ter the Cougars maintained an msurirjo-untable 44-16 lead and just cruised into the win. IS YOUR FARM MACHINERY GOOD OPERATING CONDITION?

One minute serious, one minute humorous Joey Giardello has all the ingredients By GARRY ALLISON Herald Staff Take a large portion of sin- cerity, humor and likeability; add an ex-boxer and a few scars an emormous amount of love and then stir vigorously. The result Joev Giardello. Giardello is in Lethbridge for the 19th annual Kinsmen Sports- man's Dinner which gets under way tonight at 6 in the Exhibi- tion Pavilion. The Giardello love is doled out in large measures in his home in Cherry Hill, New Jer- sey and the recipients are his wife Rosalie, and their four Hawks indicate thev are first By THE CANADIAN PRESS Any notions Minnesota North Stars had of finishing in first place in the western division of the National Hockey League are rapidly being dispelled by Chi- cago Black Hawks. The explosive Hawks flashed some of their vaunted power Friday in whipping Vancouver Canucks 6-2 in Vancouver. Meanwhile. Montreal Cana- diens, with the injury jinx still hovering about them, had to set- tle for a 2-2 tie with California Golden Seals on the West Coast. In Saturday's program De- troit Red Wings visit Boston Bruins for an afternoon game and tonight Philadelphia Flyers play in Toronto against the Maple Leafs; New York Rangers visit St. Louis Blues, Buffalo Sabres go to Minnesota and Pittsburgh Penguins are on the coast against Los Angeles Kings. Tomorrow, Montreal at Van- couver, Toronto at New York, Boston at Buffalo, California at Detroit, Minnesota at Chicago and St.'Louis at Philadelphia. South rinks ousted RED DEER (Special) It's Roy Talbot of Red Deer and Ron Northcctt of Calgary in the showdown final of the southern Alberta Men's curling championship today. Northcott, the B section win- ner, must beat Talbot twice to advance to the Alberta final The Calgary skip, a former world champ, subdued Terry Lyon of Pincher Creek in the B final 10-2 to advance against unbeaten Talbot. Lyon had earlier gotten past Lyle Davis of Lethbridge 13-10 in one B semi-final. Northcott, on the other hand, belted Brian Stewart of Calgary 9-3 in the other semi-final. It was a tough loss for Lyon in the B final. He seemed to have things under control in the A event final as he led Tal- bot 5-2 after six ends. Talbot, however, came to life in the seventh scoring three. Lyon gained one back in the eighth but the Red Deer skip scored one in the ninth and stole another in the 10th. He wrap- ped it up in the llth when Lyon pulled up short on an at- tempted draw leaving the Tal- bot rink counting two.

NAME STREET CITY The Toronto at New York game, originally scheduled for Sunday night, will begin at p.m. M.S.T. Erupting for four .goals in fewer than six minutes of the second period, the Black Hawks went on to a handy victory that widened their lead over the idle North Stars to 13 points. Cliff Koroll and Doug Jarrett paced tre winners with two goals apiece while Dennis and Bobby Hull each added one. Dave B a 1 o n and- Bobby Schmautz were the snipers for the Oanucks. Dennis Hull started the scor- ing binge at of the middle period and by the mark the visitors had put the game out of reach. Bobby Hull banged home Ms 37th goal of the season during the outburst. Yvan Cournoyer's two goals less than four minutes apart de- stroyed Seals' visions of victory after they held a 2-0 lead in the third period. LAPOINTE HURT Guy Lapointe, Montreal de- fenceman had to be taken to hospital for treatment after he was struck in the face by Stan Gilbertson's stick. Gilbertson was attempting to clear the puck during a Montreal power play when he caught Lapointe on the upswing and opened gash under his eye. Lapointe was replaced by Serge Savard, who was playing Ms first game in more than a year. The previous night in Los An- geles, Canadiens lost the serv- ices of defenceman Terry Har- per. He underwent surgery Fri- day to repair tendons in Ms right hand" which was gashed when he smashed into the glass. Doctors said the one-hour op- eration was apparently success- ful, but there was no indication of how long it might take Har- per to recover. St. Louis Blues announced Friday they were returning for- ward Curt Bennet to Denver Spin's of the Western Hockey League.

While Joey loves all his chil- dren it is obvious there is a special warm spot in his heart for Carmine. Carmine is men- tally retarded. When Joey speaks about Car- mine there is a special inner glow. "The biggest thrill of my said the ex world mid- dleweight champion, "was when Carmine won the 50 and 300 yard dashes competing in the Retarded Olympics." Rosali, Joey's spouse for over 21 years, also works closely with Joey in his work with the retarded. He is on the Presi- dent's Commission for Retard- ed Children and is presently or- ganizing a benefit boxing match for St. John of God's School which Carmine attends. This fight card will feature Jake LaiMotta, Willie Pep, San- dy Saddler, and Rock Graziano, and many other great cham- pions. ALL FORMER WORLD Joey's boxing career span- ned 133 bouts, during which time he was never knocked out. "I was stopped on cuts, but I had plenty of stamina and was never kayoed." Giardello learned his boxing on the streets of Brooklyn where he also developed his love for baseball, and in par- ticular the Brooklyn Dodgers. Today he follows the Phillies, but-not with the same zeal he held for the old Dodgers. If you want to talk baseball trivia, Joey's your man. His love for baseball com- bines with his love for chil- dren and he manages a Little League team in his home town. It was Joey's left hook and stamina that carried him through many tough fights, the toughest of which he says were his four battles with the late Dick Tiger. While he met many people in boxing he said, "after all my years in boxing the only man I truly dislike is Gene Fullmer. I'd fight him again today if I had the chance." His sense of humor is more than evident. "I remember once when I hit Al Andrews with a left hook. My glove split open and the stuffing was com- ing out. It scared me when I saw it on my glove, I thought it was from his head." Joe Polino was Joey's cut man for years and he praises him as one of the best. "He was a very funny character, but was great on cuts. In fact he'd be disappointed if I didn't get cut. He was actually happy when Fullmer cut me." Joey met some pretty tough Canadian fighters in his day but the toughest was Roy Woul- ters. "He's the one who gave me this he said pointing to a slightly deformed left ear. Today Joey Giardello is a chemical salesman, a long way from his fights with Billy Gra- ham, Joey Giambra, Holly JVBms, Gil Turner or Charlie Cotton. Does a man who is idolized by many have idols of his own? Yes, Giardello looked up to his late father, who he called a "man's and he also has deep feeling for Pope Paul. Joey Giardello is a true cham- pion and a great catch for the Lethbridge Kinsmen. ROUGHIES NAB JUNCK REGINA (CP) Saskatche- wan Roughriders of the West- ern Football Conference today announced the signing of a Mgh- ly-rated U.S. College quarter- back. He is Mike Juck, a 6-foot-l product of Morningside College in the North Central Confer- ence.
