Lethbridge Herald (Newspaper) - February 15, 1973, Lethbridge, Alberta Thursday, February 15, 1973 - THE LETHBRIDGE HERALD - H Canadian pair impressive Wednesday Nastase lived up to expectations CALGARY (CP) - Hie Nastase of Romania made a successful debut in the Canadian indoor tennis championships Wednesday night, but many spectators went home seeing double. The loudest applause of the tournament was reserved for a doubles test featuring Americans Fred DeJesus and Victor Amayl against Australians John Cooper and Ian Fletcher. But two unheralded Canadians drew their fair share of recognition. Although beaten 64, 6-2 by Close call Hie Nastase of Romania had to dig into the depths of his talent Wednesday to defeat Jas Singh of India 7-5, 6-4 in the Canadian Indoor Tennis championships currently under way in Calgary. Nastase is top seeded for the -event. Named as coach BALTIMORE (AP) - How-ai'd Schnellenberger, who designed the ball control offence that helped carry Miami Dolphins to the Super Bowl championship, was named today as head coach of Baltimore Colts of the National Football League. Schellenberger, an assistant coach in the National Football League for seven years, takes over a Baltimore team under a rapid transition after suffering its first losing season since 1956. Joe Thomas, who now has employed three head coaches since taking over as general manager last July, is in the process of revising the makeup of the entire Colts' roster. Both Thomas and Schnellenberger have Canadian Football League backgrounds, Thomas as an assistant coach with Toronto Argonauts and Schenilen-berger as a receiver for Hamilton Tiger Cats. Mohawks quit south league The winless Medicine Hat Mohawks dropped out of the Southern Alberta "A" Boys" Basketball League after finding the competition too tough to handle. After seven disastrous losses the Mohawks decided to hang up their suits and let the remaining five league teams fight it out for the 1972-73 champion ship title. The Magrath Zeniths and LCI Rams currently lead the league with 6-2 records followed by the Catholic Central Cougars with a 5-2 record.

Marv Luster of the Toronto Argonauts wants to be traded. New head coach John Rauch humiliated the nine year veteran', according to Luster. Trade me now -- Luster TORONTO (CP) - Marv Luster, an all-Canadian in five of his nine Canadian Football League seasons with Toronto, wants to leave the Argos because of new head coach John Rauch. Luster says he was "humiliated" by Rauch last week and is willing to give up his teaching position to play elsewhere in Canada. "I changed my mind about retiring this season and went to talk to Rauch," Luster said in an interview, Tuesday. "He told me I could expect to be cut." He said Rauch "had the gumption to suggest I get myself into shape for training camp." "When I was cut, it would be released to the public that I had �retired voluntarily.' He implied he might need my help coaching the defensive backfield and there would be a couple of bucks in that for me. I regard that offer as absurd. LEFT "HUMILIATED' 'I left the office completely humiliated. It would be ludicrous to try cut for a job that was, not there." Rauch, appointed head coach in January to succeed fired Leo Cahill, was not available for comment. John Barrow, Argo general manager, said he was shocked by Luster's reaction to the conversation with Rauch. "I know that Rauch wants Marv to play, but if it doesn't work out that way we would make every effort to open up a coaching job for him," said Barrow. "Knowing both men I'm shocked at the situation. The only plausible answer is that there was a communication problem because there's no other reason for it." Karl Meiler of West Germnny and Tito Vasquez of Argentina McCormick of Vancouver played well enough to solve-or pose-a problem for Davis Cup selectors. "We won the Canadian-closed championship at Winnipeg last year," McCormick said in an interview. "We're the reigning Canadian champions." The performance of Brown and McCormick, who produced flashes of brilliance, reminded observers that playing captain Mike Belkin of Montreal has said many times Canada's major Davis Cup requirement is a solid doubles team. Belkin would prefer not to play doubles if possible in the meet at Colombia, starting Feb. 23, and trials will be held to determine the fate of McCormick and Brown, bcth Davis Cup rookies. Belkin and Tony Bards-ley of Vancouver are virtually certain to play all important singles matches. FARE BADLY Neither of the newcomers played well Wednesday in singles. Brown was thumped 6-2, 6-2 by Jan Kukal of Czechoslovakia and McCormick was pounded 6-1, 6-1 by Paul Gerken of Stanford, Conn. A standout when he graduated from Trinity College in Texas, the seventh-seeded Gerken was to meet Belkin today in an interesting second-round match. Nastase justified his ranking as No. 1 seed as be defeated popular Jas Singh of India 7-5, 6-4. Second-seeded Juan Gisbert of Spain blasted Saboles Ba-ranyi, an experienced Hungarian Davis Cup player, 64, 6-2. Singh's booming serve failed to overcome Nastase's advantages in speed and Court sense. Gisbert lost service only once in his match with Baranyi. Singh remained alive in doubles as he teamed with Gabriele Marcu of Romania to eliminate Peter Burwash of Toronto and F. D. Robbins of Salt Lake City, Utah, in a first-round doubles match. BURWASH STEADIER Burwash showed more consistency than his American partner in their 6-3, 64 defeat. Gerken, considered one of the threats to Nastase in singles, established his credentials in doubles by combining with Jor-gan Fassbender of West Germany for a 6-4, 6-4 margin over Jaimie Pinto-Bravo of Chile and Nick Kalo of Greece in the other doubles match. Amayl and DeJesus, roommates at the University of Michigan, won the first set over their seasoned Australian ri- Hornets sideline Warriors The Vauxhall Hornets moved into the south division finals in the Southern Alberta Juvenile Hockey League with an easy 7-3 victory over the Lethbridge Wednesday night. The Hornets captured the best-of-three semi-final playoff series in two straight games as they defeated the Warriors 4-2 last Sunday. Tlie Hornets will now meet the Lethbridge Midget Elks in a best-of-three series for the south* title. In last night's match, Jake Giesbrecht and Terry Kress scored a pair of goals to power the Hornets' attack. Gordon Miller, Doug Odlund and Rod Olson clupped in with singles while Denis Mezie, Jim McLennan and Randy Lomns notched solo markers for the Warriors. v a 1 s , but Cooper-younger brother of former Australian ace Ashley Cooper-got his power game under control to close out a 4-6, 6-3, 6-4 victory. In other singles matches, Meiler overpowered Pinto-Bravo 6-0, 64 and steady southpaw Peter Szoke outlasted Czech Jerry Hrebec 6-7, 64, 7-6. I'illlllllllllllllllll Crowds continued to be small for the $15,000 international event as only about 500 watched Wednesday. But organizers said sell-outs of about 2,000 are assured for semi-final and final matches Saturday and Sunday. Matches on the final day are sclieduled to be televised by the CBC. SULLY SAYS -By Pat Sullivan �)ID YOU EVER learn to respect a man, or woman for that matter, who you had never met? I don't mean a national hero, or a prime minister or president, but an average, everyday kind of person. I have to say that I do. The man I have come to respect and admire a great deal is Joe. Falls. Now that name shouldn't ring a bell with anyone' unless they read Sporting News. Falls writes a regular column for the Sporting News as well as a daily, I believe, column for the Detroit Free Press. I have never met the man, nor do I have reason to believe I ever will. Perhaps, if I was given the opportunity to meet him, I would be disappointed or maybe I couldn't describe the thrill. I don't know. What I do know is the man is a very good writer. He may not be an expert on all sports, then again he doesn't claim to be. But he has a personality in his writing. I know he's where things happen. He covers Major League baseball, the National Hockey League, National Football League, college football, the Indianapolis 500, you name it, he has seen it and almost assuredly, covered it. He can, it goes without saying, be exclusive, he's been there- he knows. But there is another side to Joe Falls, one I think that makes me admire him. While he hobnobs with the best in sports he still has time for the little guy. Perhaps, and Falls has said this himself, his biggest thrill is not a World Series, or Stanley Cup, but a visit to his friend No. 91518. No. 91518 is Falls' buddy Jim Kelly. He is an inmate at Southern Michigan Prison. Falls came across Kelly nearly six years ago when he discovered some of his work while writing sports for the prison paper. Even I have used some lines from Kelly. "Fishing is a wonderful sport, especially if your wife won't let you drink at home or scientists say horses can sleep standing up, but why do they have to be the ones Ted Berlando bets on?" His latest one is "I'm such a born loser that when I go to the beach and put a seashell to my ear, I get. a busy signal." Falls explains that he didn't know why he liked Kelly so much until recently. Kelly, who is 38 years of age, has spent 20 of those years behind bars and yet he never gripes. He has never once said that life has been unfair to him or that he isn't serving a just punishment. Falls says that Kelly is a great source' of strength to him. It bothered me that a man like Falls could be so moved by someone he can hardly have contact with except for an occasional letter or a brief visit. And yet this man, who is on a first-name basis with the likes of Gordie Howe and AI Kaline and Mickey Lolich, was moved by a prison inmate. And then I found out why. Kelly, the man who never gripes or complains, takes each day in his stride much better, than you or I. As lie says, in prison you forget the sound of a baby's cry. You forget the sound of a dog's barjs-or even the dial tone of the phone. Prison is a place where you go to bed before you are tired, where you pull the blanket over your head when you're not even tired. The majority of us have never had that feeling and I hope, for all our sakes, we never know it. I started out this column telling you of my respect for a man I do not know and yet a small piece of my insides says I do know Joe Falls. Maybe it's envy and then again, maybe not. Possibly I'm moved by his ability to relate to a man confined. I can't really explain it. AH I know is when I walk out the door today I'm going to listen for a baby's ciy or a dog's bark, just so I don't forget. All much the belter lighter Bugner stayed all the way LAS VEGAS, Nev. (Reuter) - Former world heavyweight champion Muhammad Ali put on a dazzling boxing display to gab a unanimous decision over Britain's Joe Bugner here Wednesday night, but failed to score his predicted seventh-round knockout. Ali, nine years older than the 22-year-old European champion, led on points from start to finish and opened a nasty gash over Bugner's lel'L eye in the first period. Bugner, 219 pounds aud a shade taller than his opponent, at times looked like an innocent against the masterly Ali. But he kept going gamely despite having his face reduced to a mask of blood in the 10th round. Ali, weighing 2WU, had predicted a knockout in the seventh round and when he failed to achieve it, he walked back to his corner on the bell, letting his gloves flop against his sides. The fight, at the 7,200-seat domed Las Vegas Convention Centre, drew a crowd of 5.700 with a gate of $288,000 against a possible gross of more than �400,000. In almost every round Bugner came weaving out with good left J2bs to delight the 1,200 British fans In the* crowd. But Ali, dancing and weaving throughout, managed to avoid most of Bugner's punches. The biggest tribute to the courage of the powerful curly-haired Bugner was that he was still on his feet at the end of the 12 rounds despite the savage battering he suffered in the 10th. British judge Roland Dakin gave it 57-54 for Ali, Ralph Mosa gave it 57-52 and Lou Ta-bet made it 56-53. Bugner, with a previous record of 43 wins, four losses and one draw, went into the fight an 8-to-l underdog. Ali notched up his 41st win. His only loss was against Joe Frazier in their title bout in 1971. Ali is scheduled to fight seventh-ranked heavyweight Ken Norton in San Diego on March 1. GET YOUR ONE BEST DEAL!
