The Olympians were greeted by large crowds. (AP Wirephoto) ht on Mark, Gordie doesn't mind DETROIT (AP) seemed incongruous. A middle aged woman walked past Gordie Howe and up to Mark Howe at Detroit Metropolitan Airport and asked" for Mark's autograph Monday night. "It's for my she said, smiling. Gordie didn't mind. He signed so many autographs in his fabled 25-year National Hockey League career that maybe it contributed to the arthritis he developed in his wrist. But the proud father, for- mer Detroit Red Wings super- star and now a vice-president of the NHL club, was glad to turn the glory over to a new generation Howe. IT'S MARK'S HOUR It was Olympian Mark's hour. About a dozen friends and plus a contingent of news and cameramen, greeted him as he left a 747 jet. He had just spent 30 hours travelling from Japan where he played on the silver mcd- al-winning United States hockey team in the Olympics at Sapporo. The 16-year-old Detroiter didn't score any points in the U.S.'s surprising perform- ance, but he was the centre of attention. The soft-spoken but rugged forward, who plays for the Junior Wings of the Southern Ontario Hockey Association, slowly pulled his silver medal from a blue velvet box. It was attached to a large rib- bon. He put it around lu's neck as his mother Colleen and Gordie Local YMCA impressive The Lethbridge YMCA Squash club took part in its first competition with a Cal- gary Club and it turned out to be a rousing success. Saturday, the locals travelled to Calgary to meet Pogucs Ath- letic Cliili nnd came away with a convincing seven victories in as many matches. Dennis Connolly, Wayne Bowes, Gerry Wright, Ian Me- Fadzcn and Inn F.scell each cnmc up with three straight wins in a hosl-of-fivc sel. Dick King-Brown and Klaus Jericho eacii won their sets 3-1. Couuuliy bested Ken Allison of the host club 3-0 while Bowes followed suit over Alislair Scott, Wright over Jack Major, Me- Fadzcn downed Colin McLean and Kxccll blanked Jack Diet- rich. Jim Finnuy was able to win one game from King-Brown while Jericho gave up one match to Bill Kclsay. gathered close for photogra- phers. "What does the inscription someone asked. "Made in came a response from an onlooker, and everyone laughed. Kisses from his mother and girl friend greeted Mark, as- well as a large red poster, with a picture of comic strip character Snoopy, which read: our Valenune Mark. Haopiness is winning a silver medal." He said international hockey competition involved more skating and less hitting than in this country. "When I went over I thought I was in pretty good he added. "But I found out I wasn't."

Made a few changes Will Expos improve in 72? Minor hockey MONTREAL (CP) Are the 1972 Montreal Expos going to be an improvement over the 1971 edition of the baseball club that finished in fifth place in the National League's East Division? That's the question many Montreal baseball fans are asking as the April 7 game against Chicago Cubs at Jarry Park draws nearer. On paper the Expos have made few changes, although they have done a couple of things to strengthen the pitch- ing staff. One was to acquire veteran left-hander Denver Lemaster from Houston Astros in a straight cash deal. Lemaster, 32, could serve as either a starter or reliever for the Montreal club and should give it the left-handed pitching it has been lacking since the club's inception in 1969. "This was not one of those hope said Expos' gen- eral manager, Jim Fanning. "We plan to get; a lot of mile- age out of this mon." Lcmaster had been a regu- lar starter for nine years, be- fore Houston manager Harry Walker confined him to the bullpen last season. PICK UP TAYLOR reason why Morton "shouldn't pitch back to the form he showed in 1970." Morton was bothered by a sore arm for much of 1971 and had a dis- mal 10-18 won-lost mark. There will be few changes in the infield position, which means that on opening day Ron Fairly will p-obably start at first base, Ron Hunt, voted as the team's most valuable player in 1971, at second, vet- eran Bobby Wine at shortstop and Bob Bailey at third base. Boots Day, who recently in- jured his right knee playing basketball, would appear to be the club's No. 1 centre- fielder and of course, Le Grande Orange, Rusty Staub, will be at his regular right field post. The left field spot is still a question mark with Stan Swanson, Clyde Mashore and Ron Woods all being candi- dates. IIAHD TO FIND John Bateman appears to have the inside track for the No. 1 catching post and he'll be backed by John Boccabella and Terry Humphrey, who spent most of his time last season with Winnipeg Whips, the Expos farm club in the In- ternational League. The Expos are still looking for some middle i n field strength and Fanning admits "we're ready to give if we can get what we're looking for." But good infielders are a rare commodity these days and Fanning and other gen- eral managers know it. Fanning wants a fast man that can scoot around the bases and who's young. He just may have to wait until some of his own farmhands develop. Getting back to the original question though, how will the Expos fare in 1972. If the pitching and hitting holds up, they may surprise a lot of people. But if it doesn't, they will probably be battling the Philadelphia Phils for sixth spot again.

Scott Jarvie and Richard Shardlow picked up hat-tricks leading the Labor Club Bee's to a 11-2 win over the Black Hawks in Bantam "A" play. Duane Lendrum added two markers while Keith Miyashiro managed singles. Barry Schmidt and Brian West tallied a goal each in a losing cause. The Comets scored three times in the second and final periods of play to skate to a.i easy 6-2 victory over the Royals.

Ken Gemmell replied for Fort Macleod with two mark- ers while Ken O'Sullivnn, Scott Ilcnril and Dairy O'Sullivan scored singles. The Lethbridge Elks took it on the chin in two Southern Alberta Juvenile Hockey League games last weekend. Saturday the Elks suffered a 13-2 loss to Taber Palace Pats while Sunday they dropped a 14-6 decision to Bass-ano. Randy Syrenne and Joe Meli scored a goal each in their loss to Taber Saturday while Sun- day Meli scored two goals and Bill Harris, Kevin Keith, Guy Pomahac and Pie Lavoratto added singles. Lethbridge Pee Wee Kings built up a 7-0 lead and coasted to a 12-1 win over Okotoks in their Pee Wee divisional play- off game Sunday. The game was the first of a two-game, total-point series. Jeff Takeyasu and Robert Shade paced the Kings w i t h three goals apiece. Two-goal ef- forts were turned in by Larry Albiish and Terry Bailey. Dave Miskulin completed the scoring with a single.

Taylor, 34, was a key cog in the Mets' drive to the World Series two years ago, but last year Mets' man- ager Gil Hodges utilized him sparingly, going more to Tug McGraw and other Mets1 re- lievers. Relief pitching was one of the weaknesses in the Mont- real club last season with only screwballer Mike Marshall performing consistently well. Another newcomer who should help the pitching staff, which had a 4.41 earned-nm average last year, will be Tom Walker, six feet, five inches, who was picked up by Montreal from the Baltimore Orioles farm system in the winter draft. Walker pitched a no-hitter for 15 innings last season in the Texas League. The Montreal front-line pitching looks set with Bill Stoneman and Steve Renko, two right-handers rated as the top two starters. Stoneman was a 17-game winner last season and was one of the leading strikeout artist in the National League. Renko won 15 games last year. SHOULD IMPROVE Ernie McAnally, who won 11 games in his rookie season, will probably grab another starting berth with John Strohmayer and Carl Morton, the National League rookie- of-the-year in 1970, battling for the No. 4 starting role. Fanning says there is no tonal Hockey League turn over its records containing details of the league's method of opera- tions. Brian O'Neill, executive direc- tor of the NHL, received a civil investigative demand, which in effect is a civil subpoena requir- ing the league to answer all questions and turn over any documents bearing on the anti- trust investigation. The development Monday Is part of a far-reaching investiga- tion into organized hockey by the U.S. attorney-general's of- fice. A civil investigative demand was served last week on the Eastern Hockey League and it Is believed that other pro leagues doing business in the United States also received such orders. Tile demand asked the NHL to answer questions regarding ownership of arenas, the rela- tionship of pro leagues to one another, how players are allo- cated, their types of contracts and how territory is maintained. An investigation has been going on since at least last fall. In recent months there have been several anti-trust suits against various hockey leagues. The most significant, was a million suit filed by Neil Shayne, owner of the Long Is- land Franchise in the new World Hockey Association, against the NHL. Shayne claimed the NHL conspired to keep him out of the new Nassau Coliseum in Uiondale, Long Is- land, by granting an NHL fran- chise to Long Island. SKIING WITH Alpine Director. Canadian FJati V Beginners SKATING Skating on skis is probably easy for mnst Canadians as it is very similar to skaling on ice. Start on a flat or almost flat area and thrust off one leg. much as you would do on ice skates. Transfer the weight from this leg and slide forward at an angle on the other ski. Repeat this motion by thrusting off the sliding ski and onto the other ski which is angled the other way. Skating like this is quite simple and is good practice for the beginner. It gives you your first directional while moving on the skis and also helps to develop strength and balance.
