Roger Rousseau, president of the organiz- ing committee and the highly-successful Olym- pic lottery, said Thurs- day the committee will study the possibility of extending the current eight-draw lottery to a ninth segment. The fourth draw, with million in tax-free prizes to be shared bu ticket-holders, is scheduled for Quebec City on Feb. 16. Once again there will be two first prizes. Rousseau said the fifth draw will be held June 8 and will follow the same pattern as the fourth, with six million tickets to be sold and the same prize pattern. The site for the fifth draw has not been decided. When the organizing committee set down its original budget of million to stage the Games, projected profit from the lottery was million. Basketball Tournament Thur- sday. The Eagles trailed Winston Churchill 30-25 at the half, but came on strong in the final two quarters to advance to the semi finals. Rod Ririe piled up 20 points for the winners while Randy Haynes added 12. Brian Leshi- was tops for the Mastiffs with 20 points. In other, first round action, the Lethbridge Collegiate In- stitute Colts edged Magrath Super Subs 37-35, Cardston Wildcats thumped Lethbridge Second Ward 58-35, and Ray- mond Mustangs got past Catholic Central Flyers 59-34. Bruce Olsen's 12 point per- formance paced the Colts to their narrow win over the Super Subs, who got 11 points from Chris Criston and another 10 from Rob "Rollingson. The Colts led 19-12 at the half. Ron Secretin hooped 14 points and Hal Sloane added 12 to lead Cardston in their romp over Lethbridge Second Ward., Gordqn Hudson and Chris Jameson each had 10 points for the Second Ward club, which trailed 29-16 at half- time. A 23 point showing by Bomici Santagela was not enough for the Catholic Central Flyers as they fell behind 34-9 by halftime en route to their loss to Raymond. The Mustangs were paced by Dave Williams, with 18 points and Brian Hicken with 15. Action continues Saturday with the semi finals and finals. Magrath meets LCI at 3 p.m. in one semi final while Cardston tangles with Ray- mond in another at p.m. The third place game is set for 7. p.m. with the cham- pionship trophy going on the line at p.m. SHOOTERS' SCOREBOARD Reloading ammunition is a lot of fun as a hobby in Its own right, there are two advantages that make it even more attractive. Firstly, with the ever increasing cost of ammunition, the savings are con- siderable, amounting to 65% over the cost of new factory ammunition. Secondly the handloader can tailor the load to suit his individual'gun by varying the components, and thus develop a much more accurate load than he could buy. The procedures Involved might appear com- plicated to the unitiated, but in reality reloading is a comparatively simple and safe operation. For those who would like to be introduced to this worthwhile and facinating hobby Plainsman Sports have arranged to have a 40 minute demonstration at their store on Thursday and Friday evening. February 13th and 14th, at p.m., sharp Metallic cartridges (rifle and pistol) will be reloaded. Everyone Is welcome. Dave Graham. Lloyd Nelson, Mel Sundquist and Guy Coughlin of Stavely left Alberta's sub ?ero temperatures for the fabulous winter shoot at Las Vegas. Next the Championship shoot at Vandalia, Ohio this is perhaps the largest trap shoot held in the United States. Certainly it is the most enjoyable for those shooters taking a break from frigid winter conditions. Demonstrating a great deal of stamina two city lawyers, Ken Waylishen and Doug Evans, have left on a mid-winter elk hunt with outfitter Dave Simpson. The season is still open in a small area adjoining Waterton Park in order to keep Park herds within population limits of their range and to protect ranchers haystacks. Obviously the special season attracts only the hardy. When the K.O.C.R. rille team from Calgary arrive to challenge the Southern Alberta team to a'shoot this Sunday, the South's team will consist of Frank Leffingwell, Bob Hobbs Senior, Lloyd Dunk. John Morgan. Gordon Whitney, Charles Arnt, Bud Schmidt, Dave Burbank, Rick Kucheran, George Pohn, Art Bourne, Sill French, Bob Hobbs Junior, and Ed Richards. This is truly a Regional team, with members from Lethbridge. Warner, Foremost. Taber and Coaldale.

SHIRTSLEEVE ACTION WAS HEAVY IN SECOND DAY OF ACTION IN THE FIVE-DAY EVENT Late goal sinks Broncos 3-2, Medicine Hat here Sunday By THE CANADIAN PRESS Thursday was the night for underdogs in the Western Canada Hockey League as the cellar dwellers in both the Eastern and Western divisions emerged with victories. Dennis McLean led Calgary Centen- nials, scoring with 29 seconds remaining for a 3-2 win over the Broncos at Calgary in one of the two league games. At Winnipeg, Winnipeg Clubs overcame a deficit to trounce Edmonton Oil Kings 9- 5. McLean's goal gave Calgary its ninth wjn in 51 games this season. Centennials are mired in the league's Western Division basement with 25 points, 35 losses and seven ties. Oil Kings are well ahead with 48 points on a 21-19-6 record. The Calgary win may have been costly as McLean injured his thumb when he slammed into the goalpost after scoring the winner. There was no immediate word on whether it was broken, but 'he went to hospital for x-rays after the game. The game, before fans, was tied 1-1 after the first period on goals by Lethbridge defenceman Russ Hall, his first of the season, and Calgary's defenceman Rick Hodgson. Greg Neeld gave Calgary a 2-1 lead ear- ly in the second frame and Ron Delorme scored for Broncos at the mark to send the teams into the final 20 minutes tied 2-2. The teams split 30 penalties, eight minors and seven majors to each club in the game which took almost three hours to play. Broncos are at home Sunday afternoon at two o'clock to the Medicine Hat Tigers. Tickets for that game are on sale daily at the Sportsplex between one and five o'clock. Sunday's game will be the last home game for the Broncos for more than two weeks as the club hits the road while the Canada Winter Games take over the Sportsplex! The Clubs moved one point ahead of Flin Flon Bombers, now in the cellar in the Eastern Division. Winnipeg now has 34 points compared with Bombers' 33. Kelly Greenback scored three goals in the final frame in the game at Winnipeg that was marred at the end by fights be- tween players and fans. The teams were tied 3-3 after 20 minutes but Oil Kings bounded ahead with two unanswered goals in the second period. Greenbank led a six-goal onslaught in the final frame with other Winnipeg goals scored by Daryl Sutton and Dale Allan, with two. First period goals for Winnipeg went to Kevin.McCarthy, Larry Skinner and Gord Blumenshein. Edmonton goal scorers were Mike Will, with two, Tony Currie, Stan Swales and Robin Saddler.

Two former schoolboy champions set to go LITHMIDOI, MWMMMM2 SHIILAKINO KINKOTKAt 101 HOiH DON MAAINO ART IOURNI EDMONTON (CP) Two former Canadian schoolboy champions are on the firing line today for the first two rounds of a six team round robin competition to deter- mine Alberta's representative in the Canadian Men's Curling Championship March 2-7 at Fredericton, N.B. Ed Lukowich will skip the first Medicine Hat rink to reach the Alberta finals and Stan Trout of Edmonton, one of the favorites, is in the provincial final for the second time in two years. Lukowich played third for his brother, Mike, when Saskatchewan finished second in the National Schoolboy Championship in 1961 and won the title in 1962. Trout skipped a national championship team in 1967, Lukowich, who has Grayson Kramer, Dale Johnson and Wes Aman in support, moved from Saskatoon last fall to a Falcons down Canucks 5-0 DRUMHELLER, (CP) Gary Smith scored two goals as Drumheller Falcons thumped Calgary Canucks 5-0 in an Alberta Junior Hockey game Thursday night. Drumheller led by period scores of 2-0 and 4-fl. Ryan Wecker, Grant Pushie, and Merlin Malinowski added singles for Drumheller, which putshot Calgary 39-37. Drumheller took eight of 13 minor penalties and each team was assessed one fighting major. new post as a high school science teacher. "I was in danger of making a career of playing third for my said Lukowich, who also played third for Mike in the Saskatchewan provin- cial final in 1969. Lukowich and Roy Talbot of Red Deer are representing the Southern Alberta Curling Association and Trout and Tom Reed of St. Albert are Northern Alberta Curling Association representatives. Competing for the Peace Curl- ing Association are Denis Graber of Valleyview and Ken Hamilton of Grande Prairie. A series of former provin- cial champions Hector Ger- yais of St. Albert, Matt Baldwin of Edmonton, Ron Northcott of. Calgary and Mel Watchorn of Fairview were bounced in early playoffs. Miller's lead is three PALM SPRINGS, Calif. (AP) The total domination of pro golf by. Johnny Miller is getting to be an old story, but his fellow tourists hold no malice. "I know it's said John Mahaffey, who finished second to Miller in the Dean Martin-Tucson Open. "I know people may be get- ting tired of it. But what he's doing is good for golf. And it's good... for the rest of us.... "He's set' his standards, his goals so high, that the rest of us are putting our goals up higher, too. "For example, I was out there today trying to shoot 62." It didn't happen. He did shoot 67, however, and the front-running Miller followed his opening 64 with a 69 and stretched his lead to three strokes Thursday in the se- cond round of the Bob Hope Desert Golf Classic. Miller, a total of 49 under par in his sweep of the Tucson 'and Phoenix Opens, had to scramble for his 69. Tom Shaw shot the best round of the six-under- par and moved into a tie for second with Mac McLendon at 136. McLendon had another 68. Mahaffey, along with rookie Bill Rogers, Australian Bruce Crampton, Miller Barber and Tom Jenkins followed at 137. Rogers had a .68, Crampton and Barber 69 and Jenkins a 71. All of the leaders but Shaw, McLendon and Crampton played at Tamarisk, one of four desert courses being used, for the first four days of this unique, 90-hole, five-day tournament. Shaw was at Bermuda Dunes, which will be the site of the final round Sunday, McLendon at Indian Wells and Crampton at La Quinta. I George Knudson of Toronto slipped to a 72 for a 141 total. Arnold Palmer also dropped to a 72 for 140. "I thought everything was going to go said Miller, who holed three birdie putts of about 20 feet, once saved par from 15 feet and ran a 70-75 foot effort over the lip of the cup. "I got ripped off on that he said. "It should have gone in." He played poorly over the front was kind of dis- oriented, like I didn't know where I he only his putting got him through the nine in par 36. 1972 Games big success BONN (AP) The 1972 Munich summer Olympics achieved a maximum effect with a minimum of public financial means, the West German government said in a report presented to parlia- ment and published Thursday. The Games cost nearly million, of which over two thirds was retrieved from Olympic connected ac- tivities, the report said. The Jan: 31 dated report said this left the taxpayer with a bill of about million at current exchange rates spread over six years and five governmental levels. "The Olympic Games 1972 despite the tragic events over shadowing them became a great success for the organizing cities and thus for the world wide image of the Federal Republic of Ger- the report concluded. Apart from these ideal values, about thee quarters of the total expense served to "make investments in areas of urgent social needs which will be of value for the report added. MALCHOWSHARP Harry.
