Editor Oh, but for one slip Donald Bumstead could be wearing three gold medals. "No, that's not said the lanky 17-year-old from Dawson Creek, B.C., after chalking up two gold medals in the Canada Winter Games speedskating competition. "A fourth place finish Wednesday made trying harder that much he said Where would Bumstead have finished Wednesday but for a slip? "Who's to said the young man. "Patrick Quay was very quick." If you could call it justice, then justice prevailed Thursday as Bumstead skated the metres in for a clear cut margin over Guay, of Ottawa, and Michael Heitman of Calgary. In all fairness to Guay, Bumstead's slip would not have stopped the Ottawa skater from establishing his unofficial Canadian record for the 500 metres. Guay was that good Wednesday. With that in mind, Thursday belonged to Bumstead as he took a quick breather and came right back to win the gold medal in the men's 800 metres. This time around the Sportsplex oval Bumstead had to fight off the challenge of two Saskatchewan skaters, Craig Webster of Regina and Gary Goplen of Saskatoon. Bumstead finished with a time of while Webster was in at and Goplen at Bumstead, without a fall Wednesday, may have prevented Eastern Canada from gaining a speedskating gold medal. "I doubt if we could have blanked said Bumstead. The thought, however, must have been there. Meanwhile, Manitoba girls maintain- ed their dominance at the oval. Pat Durnin, who Wednesday had the unfortunate extra cross-over, lived up to her word as she came storming back for a gold medal in the women's metre event. "I made sure of my cross-overs said a very pleased Miss Dur- nin. As was the case Wednesday, it was the trio of Durnin, Barbara Johnson and Kathy Vogt who dominated the women's events. Ron Marchuk, coach of the Manitoba speedskaters now has all four gold medals to his credit. "Don't give me the credit, it belongs to the was the way a very happy coach described Thursday's action. Marchuk's skaters have won all four gold medals with Vogt having won the 400 metres and Johnson the 800 and 500. Johnson missed her fourth medal, she has two golds and a silver, as she was fourth in the with a time of Patrise Hoch of Kitchener, Ont., won the bronze medal with a time of Despite the dominance of Manitoba girls, Saskatchewan leads the overall standings with 80 points. Even Ontario is ahead of Manitoba with 73 while Manitoba now has 72. If Manitoba is to take over the lead they must now have skaters finish one, two, three in the mass start competi- tion that was scheduled for this after- noon. As was the case Wednesday, Alberta skaters had their problems. With the exception of Heitman's third place finish in the men's metres, Karen Melnyk of Calgary finished well back of the pace set by Durnin in the women's metres as i she was clocked at In the men's 800 metres Heitman's time was SPEEUSKATING Men's Don Bumstead, Dawson Creek, B.C. 2.

We'll win it and they did Quebec captures foil gold QUEBECERS TASTE GAMES GOLD HUBERT, CHAREST AND LEDUC By CLARKE HUNTER Herald Sports Writer Quebec fencer Gerald Hubert made his own predic- tion come true Thursday night as he won all three of his bouts against Ontario opposition to lead his province to the gold medal in the men's foil event at the Civic Centre. The two clubs had been un- defeated going into Thur- sday's final two rounds of a round-robin tournament, but Hubert predicted, "We're go- ing to win it." Both teams swept their op- position in Thursday night's first round by taking nine straight bouts, and entered the final round still both un- defeated. But Hubert, along with teammates Donald Charest and Andre Leduc, took five of the nine final bouts to emerge as the first fencers to earn points for their province in the Winter Games. Ontario could take some consolation from the fact that their own Gerald Wall manag- ed to win the individual, gold medal, despite losing 5-1 to Hubert in the final round. Hubert finished tied with Wall for top spot with 23 wins in 26 bouts, but had to settle for the silver medal as he had a poorer ratio of hits for and against. Charest earned the bronze medal while Leduc finished fourth to complete the eastern dominance of the event. Quebec coach Jean-Pierre Le Coz cited "better preparation" as the major factor in his team's dominance of the competition. "We selected our team back in he said. "And they trained with me several times a week the rest of the way." Behind Quebec and Ontario in the team standings were Saskatchewan and Alberta, sporting 6-2 and 5-3 records respectively. Alberta split its matches in the final two rounds, downing B.C. 6-3, and CANADA WINTER GAMES SPECIAL COCACOLA U quarts I quarts At Participating Dealers Coca Cola it bottled by Purity Bottling (1967) Ltd. 2920 9th Ave. N. Phone 328-8891 Miller not making any excuses SAN DIEGO (AP) Johnny Miller declined Thurs- day to take refuge in the handy excuse of ill health and shrugged off a one-over-par 73. "Just one of those days. One of those rounds. Everybody has me, believe it or not." But Miller, who went over par for only the third time this season, still had his sights set on his fourth victory in five starts in the Andy Williams- San Diego open golf tour- nament. "I'm not put of it by any said the young man who has been the sensation of the pro golf tour for the last 14 months. Miller, fighting what he called a mild case of flu, was seven strokes out of the lead after Thursday's first round. The lead belonged to Peter Oosterhuis, a 26-year-old Eng- EXPERIENCED FEED SALESMAN We are interested in top volume Salesmen to sell quality products in the Lethbridge area.

Oosterhuis, playing in cloudy, cold and windy weather reminiscent of his homeland, had a six-under-par 66, a one-stroke advantage over John Schroeder, Artie McNickle and Mark Hayes, tied at 67.

George Knudson of Toronto was five strokes off the pace at 71. Jack Nicklaus, Lee Trevino, Arnold Palmer and Gary Player are not competing. Oosterhuis started poorly Thursday, three-putting for a bogey on his first hole. But he finished with a rush, stroking a four-iron three feet from the cup for a birdie on his 16th hole, then hit a three-wood shot to within 10 feet and made the putt for an eagle three.

Helmut Mach was Alberta's top individual with a 17-9 won- loss record, good for 10th spot among the 27 men's [oil com- petitors. Earlier Thursday, the first four rounds of an eight-team round-robin women's foil tour- nament were run off. Ontario, Quebec, and British Columbia and Saskatchewan emerged from the day's action with perfect 3-0 records, while Alberta, Manitoba, Newfoundland and Nova Scotia were winless in three matches. The other provinces and territories did not send teams. In the individual women's standings, Debra Taman'of Saskatchewan and Eleanor Parsons of British Columbia are undefeated in 11 bouts. Right behind those two is Quebec's Mary Louise Szoka, who has lost just one bout. Alberta fencers won only four of their 27 bouts Thur- sday, but one of them was a big upset. Wanda Wetterburg, a 22-year-old fencer from Ed- monton, handed Szoka her only defeat by a score of four hits to one. Helen Sachs of Edmonton is the top Alberta fencer with four wins, counting those against her teammates in the first round, while Wetterberg is right behind with three.
