Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - February 5, 1975, Lethbridge, Alberta 16 THE LETHBRIDGE HERALD Wednesday, February 5, 1975 Big money rookies draw fans' ire, adjustment tough even in WHA 4NDY CAPP NOT ANOTHER AWAY VANCOUVER (CP) Two extremely well paid rookies are finding the transition to major league hockey is tougher than they expected. Along the way, Pat Price, 19, and Ron Chipperfield, 20, are disappointing many Vancouver Blazer fans dur-' ing their first World Hockey Association season and the salaries aren't helping the fans'temper. Both say they, too, aren't pleased with their perfor- mance. Last spring, Price signed a five year contract'worth an estimated million while Chipperfield signed.a five- year contract estimated at between and million. Chipperfield set five club records during his four years playing for Brandon Wheat Kings in the Western Canada Hockey League, two of them in his final year. His 261 goals and 209 assists for 470 points set three career records and his. 90 goals and 162 points' in the 1973-74 season were single season records. So far this year, Chipperfield has scored 12 goals. "If you had told me at the beginning of the season that I'd have just 12 goals at this would have told you he says. "I really underestimated the goaltending in this league." Bowling scores HOLIDAY BOWL GOLDEN AGE Larry Smith 244. Katie Bernhart 237, Velma Miller 234, All Sell 224, Ruby Oseen 332 Arvid Oseen 248.

"I've lost my confidence because of my poor shot. It's just not hard enough. Andy's (assistant coach Andy Bathgate) trying to change it and help me. Price, with his contract and flair for the unusual, received most of the pre season publicity. He set a Saskatoon Blades club record for most career assists, 188 from 1970 through 1974, was voted the WCHL's top defenceman of 1973-74 and was on that season's all-star team. After signing, he managed to smash his Ferrari sports car on a rainy August night near Nelson, B.C., where his parents live. The car is still undergoing repairs. Price escaped uninjured. Then, he managed to sprain an ankle when he fell off his platform shoes. "I don't care if the fans yell or says Price. "It only hurts when I play badly. "The money was definitely secondary. I could have signed with Washington for about the same money but I only wanted to play for one team in the WHA, and that was Vancouver." "I was a little confused at the start of the season. Joe (coach and general manager Joe Crozier) and I couldn't get straight on a number o.f things. "Sure, I like to carry the puck.-In junior I'd always beat the first man with the fake and then pass. But in this league you can't. When I take the puck up the ice, the idea of going into their end is to do something constructive. LOOKS BAD "When I cough up the puck it makes me look bad. It bothers me when someone criticizes me by simply saying it's because I'm a rookie. That's unfair." Neither rookie feels he passed up the instant recogni- tion by playing in the National Hockey League; "If I wanted to play in the NHL I would have never considered coming here in the says Chipper- field. Neither rookie reads the sports section of local news- papers: "I don't care to know if you've said something.good or bad about Chipperfield told a local sports reporter.

By THE CANADIAN PRESS Just two months ago, speed skater Sylvia. Burka com- mented on the Canadian national team's improved showing in international com- petition and said the- transi- tion was due to a new coach. Today, Miss Burka is among three skaters suspended after a clash with their coach over team discipline and the team's hopes for future gold medals have suddenly shrunk. Miss Burka of Winnipeg, Gerald Cassan of Ottawa and Andrew Barron of Edmonton were sent home from West Germany after their confron- tation with coach Jorrit Jorritsma and the Canadian Amateur Speedskating Associaton (CASA) an- nounced Monday that the three'have been suspended from further international competition this season. The clash with Jorritsma and the subsequent suspen- sions contrasted sharply with Miss Burka's comments in an .interview in Saskatoon last December when she painted a rosy picture of the team's progress under the new coach. "It's the first time we've had an organized team with good said Miss Burka, who has been Canada's top speed skater the last years. Previously, the team did not have a full-time coach and employed different, coaches for short periods. She said that team pride, which suffered both on and off the ice in previous seasons, was already improving under Jorritsma, a former Dutch skater. Despite Miss Burka's earlier endorsement of Jorrit- sma, she and the other two banished skaters apparently have been in conflict with the coach for some time. John Hurdis of Toronto, CASA president, said Tuesday that Miss Burka had been dis- ciplined twice before. In Ottawa, Cassan told an impromptu news conference that the three had been dropped from the team because of a personality clash with the coach. He said their banishment did not follow any specific incident, but when asked how such a clash could come to a head for all three on the same day, he declined comment. Al Workman, Ontario repre- sentative on the CASA's inter- national committee, said Tuesday that the committee's chairman, Doug Gordon, sent Frazier becomes his own manager PHILADELPHIA (AP) Former heavyweight cham- pion Joe Frazier has become his own manager. Frazier obtained a licence Monday as a manager from the Pennsylvania State Athletic Commission. The commission approved contracts with Frazier's new corporation, Smokin' Joe, Inc., an organization controll- ed by the fighter. Frazier last Dec. 15 ended his association with Cloverlay Corp., a group of Philadelphia business and civic leaders who had manag- ed him through most of his career. Pickett hot, scores three Merle Pickett scored three times as Hamilton Floors got past Oliver 8-4 in one of two Industrial League games played. In the second game City Packers came back from a 2-0 deficit to edge Gas Co. 3- 2. Cliff Block and Ed Herbert each had two goals for Hamilton while Warren Wagner completed the scoring with a single. Jess Brooks, with two, and Dave Steele and Don Hender- son, with one each, scored for Oliver. In the City Packer win Er- nie Gallant, Tom Watt and Wally Hild notched a goal apiece for the comeback win after Jay Petri had scored twice for the Gas Co. Actually, Cloverlay has not dissolved. The organization, which includes more than 900 shareholders, is expected to go out of business after Frazier's scheduled March 2 fight in Melbourne, Australia, against Jimmy Ellis. Frazier has agreed to let Cloverlay share in the guarantee he has been assured for the Ellis fight. In addition'to managing his own affairs, with Eddie Futch his trainer, Frazier will manage unbeaten heavyweight Duane Bobick, middleweight Willie (The Worm) Monroe, and several others expected to join the Smokin' Joe stable. Smokin' Joe also plans to purchase from Cloverlay the three storey building that houses Frazier's plush gym, where he trains for most of his fights. Futch, who has handled Frazier's physical preparations and selection of opponents since Yank Durham died in 1973, will con- tinue in that role. Lawyer Bruce Wright, secretary of Cioyerlay, will direct the business interests of the new corporation. Bobick's contract with Smokin' Joe, is patterned after the one Frazier had with Cloverlay. The 23 year old former U.S. Olympian will receive a salary plus a percen- tage of his purses. Bobick has been managed by Denver businessman Bill Daniels, who sold the contract to Frazier. a letter to CASA officials last month saying the three skaters "had the attitude of prima donnas to training." "He said they were challenging the coaching and training methods. They were consistently objectionable in their attitude to curfew and drinking. Gordon said they kept 'up their disruptive an- tics." Earlier disciplinary action by Jorritsma against the three involved sending them from the Canadian team's base at Inzel, West Germany, to Innsbruck, Austria, to train on their own. However, at his news conference in Ottawa, Cassan did not see the banishment to Austria as a disciplinary move. He called it a move "to benefit our skating." Cassan also had a differing statement regarding the suspensions, saying the three had been told they would not be allowed to rejoin the team either this year or next. Both Gordon and Hurdis have said the suspensions app- ly only to this year. WBC won't sanction AH fight MEXICO CITY (AP) The World Boxing Council said Tuesday it will not sanction the March 24 Muhammed Ali-Chuck Wepner heavyweight fight as a world championship bout. Council president Ramon Velazquez said he had polled the 16 members of the ex- ecutive board and 10 voted against rec- ognizing the fight, scheduled for Cleveland, Ohio. Insulin Users!
