Lethbridge Herald (Newspaper) - February 9, 1973, Lethbridge, Alberta 10 - THE IETHBRIDGE HERALD ~ Fridoy, Februnry 9, 1973 rpiIE first Chinook salmon ' to be cauglit in Montana during the past 50 year* was taken out of the Canyon Ferrv Reservoir near Helena last fall. The catch was made by Bill Cohn, a student at Helena Senior High School, and confirmed by fish and game personnel for Lie state. The catch follows the successful stocking of coho salmon in the Great Lakes region a few years back Early experimental stockings of coho salmon were made in northwestern Montana waters just before the 1920s. Thousands of young cohos were stocked in the Missouri River below the Canyon Dam following the last plantings. Some 5,600 fingerlings were stocked again in 1972. Salmon have 13 rays in the anal fin, while trout have 12 or fewer. Salmon have a multitude of gill rakers. They use these in the straining of plankton, one of their principal foods. Montana's fish and game commission has signed agreements with both the various Indian tribes and Montana sportsmen, to the benefit of both when it comes to angling- Chinook salmon a r e also known as king salmon In their home waters in the Pacific. They migrate to fresh water when they spawn. In their home waters they vary from 10 to 45 pounds, with 12 to 15-pounders about average for the anglers. It's not expected the chinooks will successfully reproduce in t h e Treasure State. In addition to Ihe chinooks, Montana now has cohos and kokanec all in the Canyon Reservoir area. These fish, all in the salmon family, provide Montana with some of the best sports fishing in the country. Kokanee belong to the species. The Kootenay Lake watershed in southwestern British Columbia is the only other major region where kokanee has been stocked. The commission will assist the tribes in both fisheries and big game management. In return the Indians are to open more of their lands to fishing and hunting for all Montanans. The department will also take over much of the fishing and hunting police work. The various management programs are to be worked out' co-operatively. about Robert By IAN MacLAINE Canadian Press Staff Writer . Hockey is a form of entertainment, so Punch Imlach obviously had a few wags shaking their heads late last season when he traded Eddie (Clear the Track, Here Comes) Shack to Pittsburgh Penguins for one Rene Robert. Few could bring National Hockey League fans to the edge of their seats quicker than Fast Eddie, his legs churning like pistons' as he raced up the ice bowling over team-mates and opposition alike without regard for sweater colors. In return, the Buffalo Sabres got a still-to-be proven winger who had scored a total of seven goals in 52 NHL games with Pittsburgh and Toronto Maple Leafs, In 54 games this year, Robert has more than justified Im-lach's faith. He scored two goals Thursday night and Dave Dryden posted his third shutout of the year as the Sabres blanked visiting California Golderi Seals 4-0.

Philadelphia Flyers visit Vancouver Canucks tonight and Chicago Black Hawks meet the Flames in Atlanta. Meanwhile the match-up in Houston produced what the fans wanted, except a win for their Aeros. . Winnipeg Jets soared past Houston 3-1 in the first of back-to-back meetings in the Texas city in what the locals hoped would put their favorites in a contending spot to overtake the World Hockey Association's Western Division leaders. The two clubs play again tonight at Houston, but instead of closing within a point of the Jets,' the Aeros now find them selves-with a five-point deficit to make up. Elsewhere, New York Raiders got solid goaltending from Pete Donnelly late in the game to prevail 3-2 over Ottawa Nationals and move into third place in the East ahead of Quebec Les Nordiques who dropped a 5-2 decision in Chicago to the Cougars. In the only other contest most of the action led to the penalty box at Los Angeles where the Sharks defeated Minnesota's Fighting Saints 3-1. The Saints are in Edmonton against Alberta Oilers in tonight's lone game. HULL COUNTS WINNER Player-coach Bobby Hull fired the winner before 7,462 Houston fans at 12:52 of the third period that opened a 2-0 Winnipeg lead. Murray Hall tallied for the Aeros about three minutes later, but Norm Beaudin, unassisted into an untended goal with 23 seconds remaining in the game, locked up the Jets' victory.

Becoming too complacent USOC promises change NEW YORK (AP) - Pete Rose was angry. Ron Reed was-incensed. And Frank Dale said he was ready to punch Marvin Miller in the nose. It was just a mad, mad, mad world Thursday after club owners said they would delay spring training until contract matters were settled with the Major League Baseball Players' Association. "If there's another strike, the players' association won't get my support," snapped Rose, Cincinnati Reds' outfielder. "Last year's strike cost me $7,-000 and a chance for 200 bits." "It's the same old Mickey Mouse stuff," was the reaction of Reed, Atlanta Braves' pitcher. "I don't know what's going on. I don't know if the owners are trying to scare us or what." Dale, president of the Reds, did a slow burn at the sudden turn of events. He levelled criticism at Miller, the players' representative in the bitter talks. 'LIKE TO PUNCH HIM' "I always lilted the guy and felt that he was extremely capable," said Dale. "But right now, I'd like to punch him in the nose." Wlule commissioner Bowie Kuhn spoke optimistically for an early settlement in the contract, the 24 teams temporarily locked up spring training. League presidents Chub Feeney of the National and Joe Cronin of the American notified their respective clubs to at least temporarily cancel training from Feb. 14 to the 28. That's the time pitchers and catchers report. Kuhn tempered the announcement with one of his own: "It's a routine matter-mainly a case of logistics-and shouldn't be blown out of proportion." Later, while at a baseball dinner in Cincinnati, Kuhn reported: "Both sides are trying to avoid a strike. The owners would like to make it a three-year contract this time. They need three years of peace. The players need three years of peace. And I need three years of peace." Kuhn, of course, referred to baseball's first strike in history last year-a 13-day affair that cost the players a chunk of pay fused to discuss the situation with reporters. Gaherin emphasized that the players have made individual salary procedures a key issue. Among the other issues being discussed are the reserve clause, which binds a player to a team until he's traded, released or retires; a pension-benefit plan and the "basic agree ment," which covers all other employee - employer relationships. The players made a major move toward settlement last Jan. 5 when they proposed that the central issue-the controversial reserve clause-be delayed for a year while the matter was studied further. At the same time, the players agreed not to ask for shorter seasons for at least three years. "I don't understand it," said pitcher Phil Niekro of Atlanta. "I thought tilings were going along smoothly " "I'm definitely surprised," said pitcher Joe Coleman of Detroit Tigers. "We didn't have any warning of this. We really worked and tried to get things straightened out." Said Brooks Robinson, tliird baseman of Baltimore Orioles: "I hate to see it. The players have not made a strike threat, have not taken a strike vote and don't intend to." "I think the owners arc being stubborn in the negotiations," said San Diego Padres first baseman, Nate Colbert. ANDY CAPP wel l, there's got to be the OTHER PEOPLE* 'ASN't there, right?.' COLORADO SPRING, Colo. (AP) - The United States Olympic Committee (USOC) searched its soul Thursday and found itself too fat, too complacent and out of step with reality. It vowed to do something about it. "The criticism of our detractors and the unfavorable press we received from the Munich Games may have served a good purpose-it shook us out of our complacency," said Philip Krumm, new USOC president. "We must close ranks, give athletes a stronger voice, create better communications and have a responsive chord at Olympic House. I am sure we can solve our problems." The USOC, opening a two-day meeting, was criticized for the debacle of the American team at Munich. Two of America's best runners did not show up at the starting blocks on time, and two others were barred from all future Olympics for a disrespectful display on the victory stand. SWIMMER LOST GOLD Rick Demont, a teen - age swimmer, had his gold medal taken way because he wasn't properly advised on the medicine he was taking, and the U.S. basketball team lost its Olympic supremacy to the Soviet Union in a wild game that ended in controversy. After the games, the National Collegiate Athletic Association, representing the major colleges, pulled out of the Olympic movement and Congress threatened an overhaul of the committee, said to be top-heavy with overage hangers-on and freeloaders. Clifford Buck of Denver, in Ms report as outgoing president, acknowledged that much of the criticism was justified. "Some committee members are only names whose contribution, if any, is probably worse than none," he said in a biting charge. VOICE FOR ATHLETES He called for reorganization of the USOC to "upgrade the quality and competence of the individual committees, elimination of politics in selection officers and a stronger role for the athletes. He proposed expense allowances for athletes prior to selection of the Olympic team, an assessment of the need to send athletes and officials to the Games in every sport and a closer look at expenditures. Buck also urged the International Olympic Committee to cut the size of the Games by eliminating team sports and reducing the number of events and number of entries in some sports. He urged a halt to "grandiose thrills" and emphasis on nationalism. Al Duer, executive director of the National Association of Intercollegiate Athletics (NAIA) and third vice-president, warned "politics, controversy and unethical practices are threatening the Games." Baldwin slips to B section Minor soccer meeting set The Lethbridge Minor Soccer Association will stage its annual meeting this Sunday afternoon at two o'clock. All persons interested in soccer are asked to attend the meeting set for the Civic Centre Room 1. Parents, coaches, managers and officials are urgently requested to be in attendance. An election of officers for the coming year is also high on the agenda of Sunday's gathering. EDMONTON (CP) - Jack Isaman of the Edmonton Granite Club is just one game away from representing northern Alberta in the provincial men's curling championships. Isaman, who has two of his brothers - Lorence and Jim-playing on the front end, scored twice coming home to nip Ron Nattrass of Lloydmin-ster 7-6 Thursday night in the A final of the l(5-zone modified double-knockout tournament. He now waits until Saturday to meet the winner of the B event where foiu- rinks, including Nattrass, are still alive. Former Canadian champion Matt Baldwin of the Edmonton Derrick Club moved in the semi-finals of B play Thursday with a 9-5 victory over Martin Bouman of Erskine. Baldwin stole three points on the first end and three more on the ninth to give him the impetus he needed after losing 7-4 to Isaman in the A semi-finals Thursday. Brian Douglas of the Edmon- ton Granite sidelined Gordon Maxwell of Viking 3-6 while and wiped out games. major league HISTORIC DESIGN The owners claimed they had made a landmark proposal to the players in an effort to settle negotiations. John Gaherin, representing the owners, said the offer called for arbitration in settling salary disputes between individual players and clubs. Gaherin also said that the club owners proposed a three-year pact covering all matters in the dispute. There was no word from Miller on any of these matters, however.
