Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - February 15, 1972, Lethbridge, Alberta Tueiday, February 13, 1972 THE LETHBRIDGE HERAID 9 TROPHIES FOR THE CHAMPS Olympic gold medal winners Dionne Holum, left, and Anne Henning pose with the trophies awarded them by the city of Chicago ofter their arrival in Chicago Monday. The Olympians were greeted by large crowds. (AP Wirepholo) Spotlight on Mark, Gordie doesn't mind DETROIT (AP) It seemed incongruous. A middle aged woman walked past Gordie Howe and lip 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 lo (lie 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 a contingent of news and cameramen, greeted him as he left a 747 jet. He had just spent. 30 hours (ravelling from Japan where he played on the silver mcd- al-winning United Stales hockey team in (he 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 tor the Junior Wings of the Southern Ontario Hockey Association, slowly pulled his silver medal from a blue velvet box. ]t was attached to a large rib- bon. He put it around his neck as his mother Colleen and Gordie Local YMCA impi The Lclhbridge YMCA Squash club took part in its first competition with a Cal- gary Club and il turned out lo be a rousing success.

Coimuliy bested Ken Allison of the host club 3-0 while Bowes followed suit over Alislair Scolt, Wright over Jack Major, Me- Fadzen clowned Colin McLean and Excel! blanked Jack Diet- rich. Jim Finney was able to win one gnme from King-Brown while Jericho gave up one match lo Dill Kelsav. 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 fneud greeted Mark, as- well as a large red poster, wilh a plcLure of comic strip character Snoopy, which read: our Valenune Mark. Hanpiness is winning a silver medal." lie 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."

CMHA warns two players CALGARY (CP) The Cal- gary Minor Hockey Association has told members of two ban- tam teams they will be sus- pended for the remainder of the season if there is more trouble before or after games. The ruling announced Sunday stemmed from a fight last week when a referee suffered a brok- en pelvis while trying to break up a brawl wliich erupted be- tween players and spectators as the teams were shaking hands at the end of a game. The incident followed a game between the Marlborough and Parkdale C teams in the 12-to ]4-age groiip. Coaches and officials said Sat- urday that two or more friends of Marlborough players touch- ed off the incident. Adult fans also rushed onto the ice but did gel involved in the fight- Ing, an official said.

Mode a feiv changes Will Expos improve in '72? MONTREAL (CP) Are the 1972 Montreal Expos going to be an improvement over the 1971 edition of tho: baseball club that finished in fifth place in the National League's East Division? Thai's the question many Montreal baseball fans are asking as the April 7 game against Chicago Cubs at Jerry 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 hi 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 lo gel: a lot of mile- age out of this man." 1-iOmasler 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 Another acquisition for Ule bullpen corps is veteran re- liever Ron Taylor from New York Mets. Taylor, 34, was a key cog in the Mcls' drive to the World Series tivo years ago, but last year Mets' man- ager Gil Hodges utilized him sparingly, going more to Tug McGraw and other Mets' re- Levers. Relief pitching was one of the weaknesses in the Mont- real club last season with only screutaller Mike marshal! performing consistently well. Another newcomer who should help the pitching staff, which had a 4.41 earned-run average last year, will be Tom Walker, six feet, five inches, wha was picked up by Montreal from the Baltimore Orioles farm system in Uie 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. Sloneman 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 Eniie McAnally, who won 11 games in his rookie season, will probably grab another starting berlh with John Strolimayer and Carl Morton, the National League rookie- of-the-year in 1970, battling for the No. 4 starting role. Fanning says there is no 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 lew 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, Kusty Staub, will be at his regular right field post. The lett field spot is still a question mark with Stan Swanson, Clyde Mashore and Ron Woods all being candi- dates. lUIin TO FIND John Baleman 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 in 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. Turn over books NEW YORK (CP) anti-trust division of the Unitec [States attorney-general's offic demanded Monday that the Na tdonal Hockey League turn ove its records containing details o the league's method of opera tions. Brian O'Neill, executive direc lor of the NHL, received civ: investigative demand, which i effect is a civil subpoena requir ing the league to answer questions and turn over documents bearing on the anil trust investigation.
