Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - February 8, 1974, Lethbridge, Alberta FfklW. HERALD 11 Henderson leaves gate like he wants to win I wouldn't say Scott Henderson of Lethbridge is greedy, he and his mates just like the finer things in life. As it stands now, one of those finer things in life Henderson and rink would like would be a second straight Shirtsleeve Bonspiel title. This time last year Henderson got off on the right foot and ended up winning the first and second events as well as the James Aird Memorial trophy, emblematic of the grand aggregate championship. Today, Henderson is, as was the case last year, unbeaten after two draws in the number one Lethbridge Herald event. Henderson, along with Lions will seek provincial aid VANCOUVER (CP) British Columbia Lions of the Western Football Conference, weighted with a heavy operating deficit, are seeking aid from the provincial government. The Lions released their fi- nancial report Wednesday night and club president Dr. Wes Munsie said he plans to go to Victoria in the next few days to meet with Attorney- General Alex Macdonald and Resources Minister Bob Williams in an attempt to get a better rental agreement for Empire Stadium, the team's home field. The financial report showed the club's operating loss at last year and Dr. Munsie says the club needs to get more money. Empire Stadium, built for the British Empire Games in 1954, is a beaten-up facility in Bancks sharp CALGARY (CP) Jerry Bancks's three goal performance Thursday night led the Calgary Canucks to a 9-2 win over the Drumheller Falcons in Alberta Junior Hockey League action and gave Bancks a club record for the most goals scored in a season by a rookie. Bancks first goal his 37th of the year broke the club rookie mark of 36 set in 1971-72 season by Dennis Olmstead. Mike Mclvor and Dean Magee added two goals apiece for the Canucks. Don Eastcott and Don Cairns contributed singles. Garth Morgan and John Hilworth scored the Falcon goals. The Canucks led 1-0 at the end of the first period and 4-2 after 40 minutes. The Canucks outshot the Falcons 37-23. Drumheller took nine of 15 minor penalties while the teams split two majors. Drumheller was assessed three misconducts and a game misconduct need of renovation and the club wants more seats between the goal lines, Munsie said. The stadium holds "In the long range, we'll have to get more revenue from the stadium, more seating between the goal the club president said. "There are only be- tween the goal lines lowest in the there should be at least place is obsolete, not only for our needs but for ev- erybody who uses the place." The stadium is administered by the Pacific National Exhibition which is controlled by the provincial government through its appointment of di- rectors. Munsie says he'll settle for a decrease in the rent, at least until the stadium can be refur- bished The club paid for 10 games last year, an in- crease of from 1972. But he said there could be a ticket price increase for local fans. "Montreal charges tops, Ottawa charges We may have to raise our top, the amount depending on what kind of rent break we get." The team's gate receipts were up, but the keeps the Lions operating despite losses, shrank to from the year before. The biggest single reason for the drop is something the team can't do anything r The club paid to injured players last year, what Munsie says is a league record. CHRIS MAY QUIT MIAMI
