By PAT SULLIVAN Herald Sports Editor The first time I heard the question "who's Wayne was Friday, the second day of the 1974 Shirtsleeve Bonspiel. I heard it again Saturday when Anderson had reached the four's of the number one Lethbridge Herald event. Sunday, the question had died down somewhat. As a matter of fact, Anderson and his Lethbridge foursome wrote its obituary. Who is Wayne Anderson? He is the new king of Shirt- sleeve, that's who. Anderson went unbeaten in six games as he dethroned defending champion Scott Henderson, of the host club, 7-6 in the final of the primary event Anderson led the way as five of six events, as well as the James Aird Memorial trophy, were won by local rinks. But for Anderson, his major concern was the number one and Henderson. As it turned out, he had good reason for concern as Henderson came within a whisker of repeating as win- ner of the first event However, Anderson, who curled with solid consistency throughout the bonspiel, watched as Henderson's at- tempt at a double raise just missed. Anderson got past Jerry Coyne of Lethbridge in'one semi-final while Henderson bested Harvey Bourassa of Fort Macleod in the other In his march to the number one title Anderson got off on the right foot Thursday by stopping John Barton of Picture Butte. From there he downed Alf Lager, of the city, Bill Lauze of Fort Mac- leod and John Virostek of Lethbridge Henderson, on the other hand, chalked up victories over Tom Fukami of Picture Butte, Gower Kennedy of Lethbridge, Bob Morrison of the city in a game that saw Henderson lay a six-ender, and Ron Neher of Picture Butte. All was not lost for Hender- son and his mates however as they retained the James Aird trophjr for another year. Henderson finished the com- petition with an 8-2 log and avoided a playoff when Lyle Davis of Lethbndge lost 4-3 in an extra end to Lagler in the final of the number two Canadian Western Nat- ural Gas event. Davis, with a win over Lagler. would have forced a showdown for the Aird trophy. Lagler, despite Davis' ef- forts, had other ideas as he won the battle with a hit and roll with his last rock in the llth end. Davis had a chance for a victory in the 10th end after Lagler had gone ahead 3-2 after nine ends in the game that saw four blank ends With Lagler laying shot to the curlers left of a Davis rock, which was second shot, Davis attempted a hit and stay for two and the win. He was heavy in remov- ing the Lagler stone and rolled out of the house himself. It was the chance Lagler needed and he took full ad- vantage of it Before meeting Davis in the final Lagler had earlier ousted Garth Pilling of Leth- bridge while Davis got past Neher. In the number three Alberta Distillers event Cliff Forry of the Lethbridge Curling Club kept the local monoply alive with an 84 win over Jim Nakagawa of Magrath in the final. Forry had to oust Shig Nakagawa, also of Magrath. Mayer rink heads north DRUMHELLER. ALTA. (CP) Judy Mayer fought off a determined Judy Keeler rink to win the Southern Alberta girls carting play of fs here Sunday. Mayer's nnk topped Keeler 9-5 in the second A-B event after dropping a 10-3 nine-end decision to Keeler earlier in the day. Both rinks are from Calgary. Mayer's rink wili play the Northern Alberta champion Feb 16 in Edmonton. It 'will be the third consecutive trip to the championships for Mayer and the second ina row for her present team. Keeler had drawn to within one point of Mayer going into the 1Mb end of their second A- B game, bat the Mayer rink scored three in the final end to make the championship. in the semi-final while Jim Nakagawa won out over Rick Overn of the city to earn a crack at Forry. The number four Sven Ericksen's event was a battle of former Shirtsleeve champions as Lawrence Len- non of Lethbridge, the 1972 champ, edged Dale Groves of Champion, the 1968 champion, 6-5 with a last rock shot. Lennon advanced against Groves by downing Art Atkin- son of Lethbridge. Groves took the measure of Lloyd Kanewischer of Lethbridge in the other semi-final. Kanewischer and his mates got back their entry fee with a victory in the final of the number five Enerson Motors event. Kanewischer upended Glen Turner's Barons four- some 7-5 in the final after trimming Ken Maruyama of Taber in one semi-final. Turner downed Kay Kitagawa of Vauxhaii in the other. Turner, with Terry Lyon of Pincher Creek throwing skip rocks, came right back on the evening draw to win the number six Eaton's of Canada event over Bill Kar- bashewski of Lethbridge 10-4 with a big four-ender in the ninth end. Turner and his mates drop- ped Bill Townsend of Leth- bridge in the semi-final with Karbashewski getting past Don Coutts, also of Leth- bridge Second event Alf Lagler of Lethbridge won the number two Canadian Western Natural Gas Co event The winners are, left to right, skip Lagler, second Del Andrews, lead Harold Larsen and third Bob Lagler.

The victory gave Gervais a 6-1 record in the eight-rink round-robin championship while Watchorn dropped to a second place tie with three- time world-championship Ron Northcott at 5-2. Gervais and his rink of third Ron Anton, second Warren Hansen, and lead Darryl Sutton will represent Alberta in the Canadian championships at London, Ont. March 4-9. It will be the fourth Canadian championship appearance for Gervais and the third for Anton, who was with Gervais in his 1961 success Gervais was runner- up in the Canadian finals in 1963 and 1970. Watchorn held a 5-2 lead after five ends in the seventh round game, stealing two in the fifth when Gervais slipped between two Watchorn rocks attempting a draw. The St. Albert skip scored singles on the sixth and seventh ends and stole two on the eighth when Watchorn twice missed attempted raises. The Peace River area skip, Alberta's representative the last two years, tied the match in the ninth with a single but gave up two in the 10th and was only able to get one back in the llth. Gervais missed an open take out with his first rock of the 12th but Watchorn was unable to get his last rock fully bidden in the four foot and Gervais followed down to bump the Watchorn stone and remain for the counter. In other seventh round games, Northcott bombed Howie Brazeau of Fort Smith, N W T., 12-3 Bruce Stewart of Calgary defeated Stan Trout of Edmonton 9-7 and Fred Da vies of Fort St. John, B.C., whipped Lloyd Wood of Pine Point, N.W.T., 11-4.
