Lethbridge Herald (Newspaper) - February 8, 1973, Lethbridge, Alberta f4 - THE IETHBR1DGE HERALD - Thursday, February 8, 1973 ANDYCAPE NONE WHATEVER. A. ME VOICE VS / \ COMPLETEUN UNTRAINED-I .TUST DEVELOPED* � IT feVYSINGlN* IN THE 8ATH WHAT D'YER. "5AVTO We'll know Saturday if we get the Games OTTAWA (CP) - Canadian participation in the 1976 Olympic Games in Montreal will be the dominant theme of the annual meeting here over the weekend of the Sports Federation of Canada. AH of the 20 or more sports which will take part in the Summer Games will be among the 70 sports governing bodies attending the three-day meeting. Another highlight comes Saturday night when Health Minister Marc Lalonde will announce the site of the 1975 Canada Winter Games. Cities seeking the games are Lethbridge, Red Deer, Medicine Hat, Grand Prairie and Hinton-Jasper, all in Alberta. Canada's top male and female athletes, selected by the federation, also will be announced Saturday night. Delegates also will be trying to get a line on how Sports Canada plans to spend its vastly-increased budget over the next three years.. Sports Canada and Recreation Canada, with an almost fixed budget of $8.5 million in the last few years, will get $14.5 million for the fiscal year starting April 1, $17.5 million for the next year and $20 million the year after that. While it is enerally conceded that sports involved in 1976 Summer Olympic will get the lion's share of the budget, other sports will be lining up for a piece of the action. There had been hopes that Mr. Lalonde in his Saturday DSP Renta-Truck MEMBER FORD RENTACAR SYSTEM Need - a - Truck � One Ton (Open or Covered) Economy Cars  Pinto Maverick Torino * SPECIAL WEEKEND RATES * CALL NOW!

Drive S., Lethbridge Bex 1234 Phone 328-8861 DK�P RENTACAR speech might reveal a promised new policy on sports, including whether the federal government will place more emphasis on mass participation rather than building up individual stars. NEW POLICY However the word now is that the new policy has yet to be fixed and Mr. Lalonde will confine his remarks to the meeting on the 1975 Canada Games. Seminars on what the sports bodies must do to get ready for the Montreal Games and on the value of international competition are scheduled along with reports on the new Canada-wide insurance for amateur sports. Back on the agenda also is the idea of establishing sports training centres across the country. The feeling among federation officials is that there now is some urgency to getting the centres to help prepare athletes for the 1976 Games. They say that abandoned defence bases, university and other facilities would be ideal for such centres. Sanderson rejoins old mates, but for how lon$ Aaron needs 41 homers ATLANTA (AP - The party was two days late, but the message scrawled on the cake contained the magic numbers for Atlanta slugger Hank Aaron- "Happy birthday Hank, 39 and 41 to go." Aaron, who celebrated his 39th birthday Monday, begins his 20th major league season this spring needing 41 home runs to tie the career record of 714 held by Babe Ruth, a standard the Hammer calls "the Cadillac of baseball records." "You may not believe it but it Ruth's record doesn't cross my mind until somebody mentions it to me," Aaron said Wednesday ait a news conference-birthday party given by Atlanta Braves. Are the Bruins ready to trade for Derek? By AL COLLETTI Canadian Press Staff Writer Now that Derek Sanderson, the instant millionaire, and Boston Bruins have kissed and made up, will there be time for a honeymoon? The flamboyant 26-year-old centre officially rejoined the Bruins Thursday when he signed a two-year contract for a reported $200,000. But under the contract, Sanderson can be traded. There are rumors around the National Hockey League that the Bruins signed Sanderson only to use him as trade bait for a goalie, a position where the Bruins are weakest. All along, Sanderson and his lawyer, Bob Woolf, had been insisting that Derek would return to the Bruins only if he had a no-trade contract. But NHL bylaws forbid no-trade clauses. "That's one of several reasons we delayed signing," Woolf said. "I wanted to make sure there was such a rule." GOT BIG SETTLEMENT Sanderson was declared a free agent by the World Hockey Association after he settled his $2.6 million contract with Philadelphia Blazers for $1 million. He jumped from the Bruins to the Blazers last summer and played in only eight games for the Philadelphia club, scoring three goals. A back injury kept him off the ice and later the Blazer management, shunned him to the extent that he left the team. Derek became valuable to the Bruins when they began a slide that dropped them from first place in the east division of the NHL to third and led to the firing of coach Tom Johnson last Monday. Botson writers, almost to the man, have come out in support of Johnson, who was replaced by pepperpot Bep Guidolin. Jerry Nason of the Evening Globe says Johnson was the fall guy for mistakes of the front-office under Harry Sinden, managing director of the Stanley Cup champions. JOHNSON WAS 'FINGERED* Johnson is the guy "who had to be fingered to pay the ultimate price for the contract work in the Bruins' front office last spring bhat let Gerry Chee-verc get away." "Tom could never cope with the chain of disasters1 that colossal booboo triggered, and the players didn't help him much either. .... "If Bep is also being asked to keep the ,Cup without Super Bowl gaaltending ... it could also be bye-bye Bep." Mason notes goalie Eddie Johnson hasn't frontlined a Bruins' team, taking the major goaltending minutes and the big-game pressures, since 1967. Taking 2,200 minutes off Cheevers' neck each season, Johnson was the ideal "backup." "Tom and the brass might have gotten away with it," Nason says, "loading a Cup defence on a backup goalie, with a really disciplined backcheck-i'ng squad. But this isn't the Bruins' style. "Theirs is to swarm to the other end like At-tila's outriders. Never look back!" Larry Claflin of the Herald American says a major trade probably will be the Bruins' next move. "From what I hear, the Bruins are working on a deal with Chicago Black Hawks that will bring goaltender Tony Es-posito together with brother Phil," Clafin writes. "For weeks Sinden has been trying to make a trade for a goalie. Esposito might be avail- UlllMilllllllllllill SPORT able because there have been rumors for months that he plans to jump the Black Hawks next season and join the WHA. A trade to Boston might forestall such a move. "If the trade is made, look for Ken Hodge and either Carol Vadnais or Derek Sanderson, most likely Sanderson, to go to the Black Hawks. That is the price- the Bruins will have to pay to get the goaltender they want." Sanderson, however, indicated he came back to the Bruins to Hunter coaches Oilers to win By THE CANADIAN PRESS Perhaps taking its cue from some of the teams in the rival National Hockey League, at least one World Hockey Association club switched coaches Wednesday and came up a winner. A few hours before game time, general manager Bill World eli amp hanging on to his title COLOGNE. Germany (AP) - Czechoslovakian world champion Andrej Nepela held on to his lead after the men's compulsory free skating Wednesday in defence of his European men's singles figure skating title. Nepela, 22, four times European champion and current world champion, scored 78.50 points in the compulsory free skating short program for a total 193.30. Tuesday he won compulsory figures. Sergei Chetverukhin of the Soviet Union moved from fourth to second place, scoring 78.14 points for 188.24. East Germany's 17-year-old Jan Hoffmann held his third placing, gaining 76.99 points for a 187.39 total. VOLKOV LOSES GROUND Sergei Volkov of the Soviet Union dropped from second to fourth, scoring 72.88 points for a total of 184.98. Earlier, Soviet world champion ice dancers Ludmila Dak-homova and Alexeander Gorsh-kov led after two of the three compulsory dances. The Soviet duo drew ahead of West German arch rivals An-gelika and Erich Buck. They gained 101.7 points for the starlight waltz and rhumba dances against the second-running West German brother and sister couple's 100 points. Third were Britain's Janet Sawbridge and Peter Dalby, with 96.1 points for the first two dances. When in Rome, do as the Romans do. Enjoy Canadian Club.

Canadian Club Is distilled and bottled in Walkerville by Hiram Walker & Sons Limited Hunter of the Alberta Oilers announced that he was taking over from coach Ray Kinasew-ich. Hunter, also vice-president of the club, moved behind the bench before 3,699 fans and helped manoeuvre the Oilers to a 3-1 victory over new England Whalers. Before the game, Hunter predicted confidently, "We are confident this move will stimulate our team ... to earn a playoff spot and to assure that we will be building a strong organization for the future." The victory moved the Oilers, who have been in a slump since opening a lengthy home stand Jan. 15, to within two points of the idle fourth-place Los Angeles Sharks in the western division. In other WHA games Wednesday, Quebec Nordiques blanked the desperate Philadelphia Blazers 3-0 and Houston Aeros climbed to within three points of the western section, leading Winnipeg Jets by downing the Jets 5-2. CHANGES HELP Ken Baird, who is seldom used, scored a goal and added two assists as the Oilers made Hunter's night a success. The other Alberta goals were scored by Ross Perkins and Ron Walters. Terry Caffery responded for the Whalers, second in the eastern division. "I think it's a great idea," Kinasewich said after being told he would be expected to return as coach next year to fulfil the remainder of a two-year con tract. "Every club needs to make changes," Kinasewich said. It's my job to help determine what changes we will need before next season." The announcement that Kinasewich had been relieved of his duties as coach, made no mention of his assistant Glenn Hall who was not available for comment. Hunter's statements made it clear he did not blame either Kinasewich or Hall, former Na tional League goaltender with Chicago and St. Louis, but "if you're in trouble and you don't do something, then you are to blame for the trouble." Meanwhile, back in Quebec, Serge Aubry and Richard Bro-deur split goaltending duties and Alain Caron provided the scoring punch with two goals-his 24th and 25bh of the season-in Nordiques' victory over the Blazers before 8,133 fans. Defenceman J .C. Tremblay accounted for the other Quebec goal in the second period. GOALIE REPLACED Aubry started in goal for the winners, but was replaced by Brodeur at the start of the sec ond period after complaining of being ill. In the final period Philadelphia's Johnny McKenzie and Quebec's Reynald Leclerc were involved in an incident that may have further repercussions in the committee room. McKenzie and Leclerc jousted with their sticks and then turned on the officials McKenzie vented his wrath on referee Brent Casselman while Leclerc devoted his attention to linesman Michel Charte. When order was restored McKenzie received a minor, major and two misconduct penalties while Leclerc was assessed a minor, major and � misconduct. The Aeros, playing on home ice to an audience of 6,738, spotted the Jets a 2-1 first-period lead, then slammed in four consecutive goals. Frank Hughes, Jack Stanfield, Murray Hall, Don Grierson and Brian McDonald were the Houston goal-getters. Garth Rizzuto and Joe Zanussi supplied the Winnipeg markers. Zanussi's goal came on a power play, the only one of five on which the Jets capitalized. play hockey, not the prima donna games he says Harry Sinden warned him against. He has surprised the Boston management with his physical condition, although he has not played in a game since Nov. 1. "They aren't giving me a job," he said. "I have to earn it. I have to prove myself all over again, just as if I were breaking in. "I'd guess I'd be in uniform by next Wednesday-I said in uniform, I don't know when I'll play." Figurehead coach? Bep Guidolin saw his Boston Bruins win their first game under his guidance but rumors have it Guidolin is just a figurehead for Harry Sinden.
