Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - February 10, 1972, Lethbridge, Alberta Thundoy, February 10, 1971 THE LETHBRIDGE HERALD ft Budget had a ceiling for most guests, Bruins' Super Stars ivanted each On, Esposito snub dinner with outrageous asking price r onn By STAN F1SC1ILER Special To The Herald SporLsmc.ii In and around the Boston area are keeping a sharp eye on Bobby On- and Phil EsposiU) lo see whether cither Bniins' star shows up at the numerous athletic func- tions around town, and how much Iliey arc paid [or their appearances. The reason for this reaction is the recent NON-appearancc of file two aces at a benefit sporls dinner to which they were invited in Manchester, New Hampshire. Bobby and Phi] wore asked by the din- ner's organizer, Leo Cloutier, to represent hockey en a dais that was graced with super- stars from other sports. Such names as Roberto Cle- mente, Sieve Blass, Richie Hebucr, Joe Torre and Willie Slargell, represented baseball while Boston Patriots f o o t- baller, Jim Plunkett, showed up for the pigskin interests. Torre, the National League's top hitter nnd most valuable player, was given for coming, the others received each. Clouiier said he could not persuade the Bruins lo come, even io utter no more than a paragraph, be- cause of their absurd finan- cial demands. On1 and Espo- sito expected apiece for their minute's worth of ver- bal pearls. JUST A BOW "f just wanted them to take a bow and say a couple of said the disgusted Cloutier, "and they ask for Cloutier isn't the only Bos- tonian unhappy with the Bm- ins. Eddie Andelman, host on Beantown's "Sports Huddle" radio show, lias been criticiz- ing the cavalier attitude of Boston hockey players for a year; and wilh good reason. "We sponsored a tour of Bniins fans to the West coast late last said And- elman, "and the players went out of their way to ignore the fans when they asked for au- tographs before the game in Oakland." fn addition to Andelman there's another anti-ruin me- dia person in Daniel Baliotli, a New Yorker and official NHL photographer, who in a gracious mood recently pre- sented several Bruins, includ- ing On and Esposito, copies of "The Burly a book on which he collabor- ated with Yours Truly. New York Daily News sports col- umnist Dick Young called Baliotti's work among the best sports photography he'd ever seen. Orr and Esposito were un- impressed. When Baliotli handed them free copies o[ the book in the Bruins' dress- ing room they reacted as if the photographer was throw- ing acid in their faces. "Orr tossed the book hi the direction of the said Baliotli, "and Esposito drop- ped his on the floor. Neither of them ever bothered to look through the pages to see whether it was a good job or not. By the way Ken Hodge and Wayne Cashman of the Bruins each accepted a copy, wished me well and said they thought it was a magnificent book. 1 didn't care that much whether Orr or Esposito liked it or not; but in the name of common decency I thought they'd at least give it a thor- ough reading, before throwing it on the floor." Meanwhile Gordie Howe's dispute with (he Detroit lied Wings' fronl office under- lines the point that the differ- ence between an active hock- ey star and a retired ace is as vast as that of a sheet of ice and a swivel-back cliair. Why should Howe kid him- self and believe thai he was shoved upstairs as anything more lhan a figurehead? The same holds for Jean Beli- veau. As a member of the Molson Brewery family he was valuable to the Ca'nadi- ens, whether playing or re- tired. But now that a new group has annexed the Cana- dicns, Beliveau can be ex- pected to be shunted aside in due time, and discreetly as possible. If Beliveau has any doubls he should consult Rocket Ri- chard, who as assistant to Hie president was promised the world by Uie Canadiens when he retired as a player but found life had changed once the Molsons took over and placed Sammy Pollock in command. "Since I was assistant to the said Richard, "I assumed I would partici- pate in meetings. But, some- how, I was never asked to any of the meetings, f eventually discovered that there was really nothing for me to do. Apparently, the new admini- stration didn't want me to do anything! I was just a show- piece sitting around The For- um like a potted plant! They didn't even show me the cour- tesy of asking my adv i c e about some of the players whom I knew EO much about." L.

North- brook, 111., the town that pro- duced two Olympic gold medal winners for the United States it speed skating, Dianne Holum and Anne Henning. Northbrook is a community o! near Chicago where sports is well organized by town officials and everybody seems to take part. Hundreds ol youngsters play hockey on an artificial rink, more than people figure skate regularly and there is organized baseball and cycling. But the only Olympic speed skating rink in the United States is 75 miles away in West Ailis, Wis., where the Northbrook champions train regularly when not in Europe. Northbrook went wild when the news broke that Anne Hen- ning, 16-year-old world record- holder, had won the gold medal in her specialty, the 500 metres, the youngest gold medallist in the Winter Olympic Games. CANADIAN RULED OUT While Anne's dream of win- ning in the Olympics was ful- filled, another girl's was shat- tered. Sylvia Burka of Winni- peg, trying hard to finish in the :op bracket, fell and was dis- qualified. The 17-year-old blonde Cana- dian had been paired with Miss Henning. The judges said she "fouled" the American and they gave Anne another the rink. The result was the American clipped a linv lit more off the Olympic record she had set in her initial try. "I was really happy about drawing Sylvia said after she was taken to the Olympic village clinic for treat- ment of an injury to her hip. "It was something I had dreamed about." She had been working toward the Olympics for the last seven years. Miss Henning, wearing a 'aded knit cap and a pin of the comic strip character Snoopy on icr suit, set an Olympic record of 43.33 seconds. It was the betler of her Iwo did 4.1.75 in her race with Miss Burka. Seven of the 29 skaters were under Uie 45-second Olympic mark, Lidia Skohlikova of Russia set in 1964, when she won all four gold med- als in speed skating. The Rus- sian skater is the only person to win six' gold in Winter competi- tion, doing it in Iwo Olympics. ni'.conn DROPS FAST In all. the record was lowered eight by Miss Hen- ning. Miss Holum, 20, won the metres Wednesday. Now the two friends will compete in the metres Friday. Their gold medals are the only ones the U.S. has won here. And they were the first for the U.S. in gold in the two-man luge racing with Italy when their sleds ended with identical clockings after two runs. Russia and East Germany head the medal standings with four gold medals each, Switzer- land and the Netherlands have three apiece, the U.S., Norway, West Germany and Italy have two each and Austria, Sweden and Japan one. Gustav Thoeni o( Italy won the two-day men's giant slalom, ending Siviss domination of (lie Alpine competition, but two Swiss skiers won the silver and bronze medals.

Japan (CP) Czechoslovakia scored two goals In the third period today to de- feat Sweden 2-1, knocking the Swedes from gold-medal conten- tion at the Winter Olympics. The win gave the Czechs a 3-1 won-lost record for six points one less than the leading Rus- sians, who have a 3-0-1 mark. Russia beat Poland 9-3 and the United States downed Fin- land 4-1 earlier in the day. Czechoslovakia plays Russia on Sunday in the final game of the tournament. If Russia wins or ties, Uiey will win their third consecutive Olympic title, but if jie Czechs win, they will grab :he gold. Sweden can finish no higher Jian second place. To do it, ;hey will have to beat Finland Sunday and hope Russia either jeats or ties the Czechs. A win by the Swedes and a tie by the Czechs would give each club seven points.

Crowsnest Pass makes request RED DEER (CP) The berta Junior Hockey league has received an informal request for a franchise from the Crows- nest Pass area of Alberla, pres- ident Jim Scoular of Calgary said Wednesday. The Crowsnest Pass was in junior hockey in the late IMOs and early 1950s. informal bid must be fol- lowed by a formal application wliich would probably be deall with at the league's annual meeting.

An investigation of (he case Is being conducted by (he Interna- tional Olympic Committee's in- lernalional control commission. If the commission rules that Schloder did take an illegal stimulant, then the Interna- tional ice Hockey Federation will have to decide how the case will affect the consolation tour- ney.
