Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - February 15, 1971, Lethbridge, Alberta TNI UTMMWOI HMAIO NWwuy 15, 1971 IFiiiter Games under way GRABS SECOND PLACE Bobby Hull moved info second place in the all-time goal scoring list in National Hockey League Sunday with two goals. He has now scored 546 goals two more than Rocket Richard, a 'former Montreal Canadian. Spring training tune-up all set NEW YORK (AP) New managers Billy Martin and Dick Williams plus a trio of contro- versial McLain, Curt Flood and Rich expected to be focal points dur- ing baseball spring training sea- son which begins in April. The annual tune-up for the April opening of the regular season starts Tuesday when the first contingents of New York Mets and Kansas City Royals report. But it will be the week- end before any team is sched- uled to have its full team at camp. The reporting dates for the 17 teams that will be training in Svare chosen for San Diego post SAN DIEGO, Calif. (AP) Harland Svare, assistant defen- sive coach of Washington Red- skins, was named general man- ager of the San Diego Chargers of the National Football League today. Svare, 40, also a former as- sistant coach player for New York Giants, was intro- duced to newsmen here by Sic Gillman, executive vice presi- dent and head coach, who praised Svare as "the foremosl man in pro football to be a gen- eral manager." He succeeds Gillman as gen- eral manager. No salary figure was announced.

The catchers join them Thursday and the whole team reports by Both Martin, replacing Mayo Smith with Detroit Tigers, and Williams, taking over for John McNamara with Oakland Ath- etics have designated Friday as :he day to begin operations with ;heir new clubs. Three other managers also will be at the helm from the start for the first time after tak- ing over during the 1970 season Tanner with Chicago White Sox, Boh Lemon with the ilc-yals and Charlie Fox rath San Francisco Giants. But it's more than likely that the focal points during the train- ing season will be Pompano Beach, Fla., where manager Ted Williams will work with McLain and Flood, and Vero Beach, Fla., where manager Watt Alston will greet Allen. McLain, who was barred from baseball for part of the 197X1 sea- son, was acquired by Wsahing- ton Senators from Detroit in an off-season trade in which the Ti- gers got shortstop Ed Brinkman and third baseman Aurelio Rod- riguez. Flood was acquired by Wash- ington in a trade with Philadel- phia Phillies, despite the fact he still has a multi-million dollar lawsuit pending against base- ball that contends the sport's re- serve clause violates anti-trust statutes. Allen, one of the bad boys of baseball, came to Los Angeles from St. Louis Cardinals. To get him, the Dodgers had to part with second baseman Ted Size- more. The Boston Red Sox camp is expected to be one of the busi- est with manager Eddie Kasko planning to experiment with a wholesale series of position shifts while attempting to make up for the power lost when out- fielder Tony Conigliaro was traded to California.

Manitobans amassed a total of 10 medals Sunday, bringing their haul to 15 since they started banding out medals Sat- urday in the 10-day winter spec- tacle which ends Sunday. The 13-member Manitoba team won five of the 10 speed- skating events which ended Sun- day, without Sylvia Burka, Can- ada's skater of the year in 1970, a 500-metre specialist who is in West Germany training for an international competition. "Just think what we would have done with our best said coach Ron Mar- chuk. Today is a quiet day for the athletes from the 10 provinces and two territories. Duguid takes Manitoba title Baldwin Alberta champ CALGARY (CP) Mat Baldwin of Edmonton, three times National Curling Cham- >ion, will represent Alberta at he Canadian finals again after a 13-year absence. Baldwin, 44 won the provin- cial title Saturday night by de- feating George Fink of Calgary 10-9 in a sudden-death final. Earlier in the day he handed Fink an 8-5 defeat. Baldwin won the Canadian championships in 1954, 1957 and in 1958. He had not appeared in the Alberta playoffs since 1960. Fink, with third Ron Borg- strom, second Don Pottinger and lead Don Nelson, took a 3-0 lead after two ends then missed with both his rocks in the third and gave Baldwin five. In the eighth, Fink got back into the game with three points and at the end of the ninth held an 8-6 lead. The Baldwin rink, with Tom Kroeger at third, Rick Cust, second, and Reg Van Wassen- hove at lead, tied it with two m the 10th. Fink picked up a point in the llth but Baldwin made good both his shots in the final end.

Du- guid beat Tayior 7-6 in the first game Saturday. With last rock in the extra end and Taylor's stnne in the eight-foot circle the only one in the (wise, Duguid won the game with a take-out and stay shot. Duguid, with the same rink that won the world title last year, led 6-2 after the third end but Taylor chipped away and finally tied the game with two in the 12th end. Saturday Duguid came through a port with his last rock on the 12th end, hit and stuck to win the hard-fought match that saw five blank ends. The Dugid rink consists of he same foursome that won be Canadian and world crowns ast year: skip Duguid, third lod Hunter, second Jim Pet- ipiece and lead Bryan Wood.
