Alwrti Phone (403) 321-7411 ADDING MACHINES Large audience watches Games gyninastics preliminaries By CLARKE HUNTER Herald Sports Writer Quebec and Ontario dominated the first day of competition in two men's and two women's Canada Winter Games gymnastics events before a large crowd at the Exhibition Pavilion Wednesday. The two eastern provinces were expected to outshine the rest of the competition, but the other provinces and territories would probably agree after Wednesday's events that they got a little carried away. Athletes from Ontario'and Quebec picked up 19 of 24 berths in the finals of the four events for which preliminaries were run off. Jacques Pannitti led a Quebec team that won the top four spots in the men's floor exercise event when he picked up the day's high score, im- pressing the judges with an 8.90 on a 10-point scale. Perhaps more impressive was the performance of Jean Choquette, also of Quebec, who finished second in floor exercise with an 8.50 marking, and also took top spot in men's pommel horse, scoring an 8.10. The top six finishers in each event qualify for the finals, which will go Friday evening at the Exhibition Pavilion. Women's preliminaries staged Wednesday included the vaulting and uneven bars events. Catherine Corns of Manitoba headed the com- petitors in vaulting with a 7.35 mark while 13-year-old Karen Kelsall of British Columbia was next with 7.30. In the uneven bars, 14-year- old Ginette DuFresne.of Quebec came out on top with an 8.50 performance, best women's score of the day: Standing in the women's events after one day of com- petition show Ontario on top with 75.40 while Quebec is right behind at 74.35. British Columbia has third spot with 72.75. The situation is reversed in the men's events. Quebec leads with 75.60, ahead of On- tario, which has 71.45. From there, you go down to Nova Scotia at 58.25. Alberta stands fourth in women's events with 64.80 points and fifth in men's stan- dings at 51.70. "We expected Ontario and Quebec to show up the says Jean Jarrell, Alberta team manager. "But we hope to come in fourth or fifth, at least." "Four of our six girls went on an Alberta team to Europe last summer for five weeks. They trained in Belgium, West Germany, and Great Britain, so they got some good experience. "And the boys are generally pretty strong in terms of gym- nastics experience." One gal who deserves full credit for carrying the Alberta colors to the best of her ability is 17-year-old Carol Johnston, who is missing part of one arm. "It just goes to show what someone can do if they don't give remarked one Alberta official. "You have to admire her. Miss Johnston scored a 7.05 in the vaulting competition, second best on her team behind Betsy Dolinsky, who had 7.10. In the uneven bars, Loreen Riley impressed the judges, and earned a 7.85 score. Topping the Alberta men was Neil Hutchison, who had a score in the floor exercise and a 5.20 in pommel horse. Youngest gymnast at the Canada Games this year is Monica Goerman of Manitoba, who turned 10 last September. She scored a 5.75 in the vaulting event, and a very respectable 7.15 on the uneven bars. The gymnastics events got under way Wednesday after- noon following the opening ceremonies for the sport. All of the competing athletes marched onto the floor exercise mat, accom- panied by the Lethbridge Collegiate Institute band. On hand to welcome the athletes were Neil Little, chairman of the gymnastics committee for the Games and Ken Hurlburt, Member of Parliament for Southern Alberta. After a few brief words, the microphone was handed over to Dave Sully, president of the Alberta Federation of Gym- nastics, who declared the sport officially open. Gymnastics was scheduled to get underway again at the Exhibition Pavilion this after- noon at 1 p.m., and continues through p.m. tonight, with preliminary com- petitions in four men's and two women's events. The finals in all ten events will go Friday evening beginn- ing at 7 p.m. THEY NEVER LEARN.> THE WOMAN WHO ALWYS INSISTS ON THE LAST WORD Alberta badminton coach: 6B.C. is team to beat' Roundup of Games results By LLOYD YAMAGISH1 Herald Sports Writer Alberta's badminton team won both its opening day matches at the Canada Winter Games Wednesday then decided the British Columbia entry is the team to beat for the gold medal.

The nine events include two events each in men's singles, women's singles, men's doubles and women's doubles play while only a single event is slated for mixed doubles com- petition. Representatives from Western Canada held a slight edge in play after two rounds of competition. Alberta, British Columbia and Manitoba managed to keep their record unblemish- ed with two opening round vic- tories while Ontario and Quebec were the only eastern provinces who were able to match this feat. The host province Alberta, who was second in the 1971 Games, successfully opened its bid for a gold medal by thumping Newfoundland 8-1 in their first nine events and tak- riAMC MATADOR COUPKS AMC Cash Rebate We've got the cars, the exclusive AMC Buyer Protection Plan, and we have the AMC Cash Rebate Plan.

The experts had picked Alberta's Carol Stuart, who was a national team member in 1973, or British Columbia's Jill Pool to win the solo com- petition staged before a capacity crowd. But this wasn't to be as Miss Carrier, who teamed with her sister, Lyna, to win the 1974 Canadian junior duet title, carted away the top honors by scoring an impressive 82.8 points out of a total of a possi- ble 100. Miss Carrier was hot the only one to defy the experts as Mary Jane King of Ontario was handed a silver medal for placing a close second with 82.4 points. Miss Stuart managed to earn a bronze medal for a third place showing. Miss Stuart, who has been idle from competitive swimming for the past year, scored 81 points which one bystander familiar with her past performances said was a number of points lower than her average scores. Meanwhile, Miss Pool of B.C. finished her solo perfor- mance in fourth spot with 80.4 points while Manitoba's Laura Kerr and Prince Edward Island's Heather MacMillan followed behind with identical 69.4 scores. Miss Kerr was awarded the fifth place because a tie breaking ruling states the competitor who scores higher on the execution performance will receive the higher stan- ding. The solo competition is based on 100 points which is further broken down into 50 points each for execution (technical) and composition (with music) performances. Sixth place was therefore awarded to MacMillan while the remaining three positions in the competition went to Frances Ellen Bonner of Nova Scotia with 67.4 points, Pauline Head of Saskatchewan, 62.8 points, and Newfoundland's Marjorie MacDonald with 61.8 points. Action in the synchronized swimming championships will continue this evening at with' the duet competition. ing all nine events against New Brunswick in the second round. The defending champion British Columbia continued to show-off their awesome power as they failed to lose a game or an event in their first two rounds of action. The west coast competitors whipped the Yukon 9-0 in their first match and repeated their shutout performance with Northwest Territories in their final round. Representatives from Manitoba also shared the spotlight, in the opening day of action as they scored a pair of one-sided 8-1 victories. Manitoba, which seems to be striving towards bettering their sixth place finish in the '71 Games, easily handled Nova Scotia in round one and Saskatchewan in the round two. Ontario and Quebec led the way for the eastern provinces. A strong Ontario team crushed the Territories 9-0 in their first match and follow- ed with an 8-1 decision over Newfoundland in their second. Quebec athletes were just as impressive as they walked away with an 8-1 verdict over Prince Edward Island in the morning and battered the Nova Scotians 9-0 in the after- noon session. The only other provinces managing to earn victories after two rounds of play were Saskatchewan and Prince Edward Island. Saskatchewan scored a slim 6-3 win over New Brunswick in their first taste of action while Prince Edward Island came up with an identical 6-3 win over the Yukon in second round play.
