Lethbridge Herald (Newspaper) - February 15, 1973, Lethbridge, Alberta Thursday, February 15, 1973 - THE LETHBRIDGE HERALD - 9 Winning isn't important Cranston not competitive TORONTO (CP) - Toller Cranston says it isn't important to him whether he wins the world figure-skating champion-ship-�i competition he'll be in later this month. Cranston, a 23-year-old Toronto artist and the Canadian figure-skating champion, said in am interview Wednesday he's interested in pleasing himself and his teacher and isn't concerned about pleasing judges. He finished fifth in last year's world championship in Calgary, rating No. 1 in free skating. Asked about his chances of taking the title in Bratislava, Czechoslovakia, in the championships Feb. 26-March 4, he said: "I'm probably one of the worst competitors in worlds because I hate competition and hate competing. I also hate the idea of stacking myself against other skaters. "I only really compete with myself. My biggest conquest is to go over there and skate to maximum capacity and that can only be judged by myself and my teacher. "On paper I have a good chance to do something. I don't know. Some people say I, maybe, could crash through and get on the podium. I really don't know and it's not important to me." Cranston said it will be difficult to beat reigning world champion Andrej Nepela who will be defending his title in his own country. However, "it has been done before." Don Jackson, then of Oshawa, Ont., and now of Toronto, won the world championship in Prague in 1962, defeating a Czechoslovaks an who was favored to win. The Czech had finished ahead of Jackson in the Olympics and the world title was vacant. Cranston, Ron Shaver of Cambridge, Ont., and Robert Reubens of Toronto make up the men's singles team in the championships. Karen Magnus-sen of North Vancouver, B.C., Cathy Lee Irwin of Toronto and Lynn Nightingale of Ottawa are the women's singles team. Louise and Barry Soper of Vancouver and Barbara Ber-ezowski and David Porter of Toronto are the dance teams. In pairs, Canada is repre- sented by Sandra and Val Bezic of Toronto and Marian Murray and Glenn Moore of North Vancouver. The team leaves today for Vienna where they will practise before going to Bratislava next week. Miss Magnussen, the Canadian champion and second in the world last year, is expected to fight for the championship with United States champion Janet Lynn of Rockford, 111. Last week a U.S. television network showed a clip of Miss Magnussen skating in the Canadian championship. The clip, a couple of seconds from a four-minute program, showed her missing a jump. Miss Lynn was shown at her best. "I guess they're trying to psyche me," said Miss Magnussen in an interview. "But it won't work. "That kind of thing makes me fight harder." Snyder hired by Montreal MONTREAL (CP) - Duke Snyder, former baseball great with the Brooklyn and Los Angeles Dodgers, has been hired to do the color commentary on the Montreal Expos' broadcast games. Snyder will join play-by-play commentator Dave Van Home of the CBC's English television broadcasts, Expos' president John McHale and Don Goodwin, chief of CBC-TV sports, announced in a statement Wednesday. "It is truly fitting that Duke should pursue his broadcasting career in Montreal because of his early baseball association with the city," said McHale. Snyder appeared in two games with the old Montreal Royals of the International League as a pinch-hitter at the start of the 1944 season and in 1948 spent 2% months with the Royals. Snyder appeared in six World Series with the National League Dodgers. In 1955 he led the league in RBI's and in 1956 was home run leader with 43. Favorites continue to roll right along Lutz sidelined with injured right knee TORONTO (CP) - A knee and a toe had bearing on second-round play in the $50,000 Toronto International tennis tournament Wednesday. . Ove Bengtson had an ingrown nail on the little toe of his left foot. Bob Lutz reinjured his right knee. Bengtson resolved his problem by cutting a hole in his shoe to relieve the pain but kept the pressure on Colin Dibley and upset the fourth-seeded Australian 7-5, 6-2. The seventh-seeded Lutz was less fortunate. He injured his knee late in the first set against unseeded Allan Stone of Australia and was trailing 2-1 in the second when he withdrew after losing the first set 7-5. Second-seeded Roy Emerson took a set and a half to adjust to the high-bouncing serves of fellow Australian Phil Dent but broke service twice in the third set to win 3-6, 6-3, 6-4 and gain a quarter-final berth against Stone. Fifth-seeded Stan Smith of Pasadena, Calif., will meet Bengtson in another quarter-final after eliminating Harold Solo- mon, of Silver Spring, Md., 6-4, 6-3. Today's second-round pairings will put third-seeded Dick Stockton of San Antonio, Texas, against Jim McManus of Berke- ley, Calif.; top-seeded Rod La-ver of Australia meets Frew McMillan of South Africa; sixth-seeded John Alexander of Australia plays Jaimie Fillol of Chile, and eighth-seeded Cliff Morrice clicks Netminder Rod Morrice, of the University of Lethbridge Pronghorns, couldn't have completed the 1972-73 City Recreation Hockey League season schedule much better Wednesday night. Morrice, who has maintained the best goaltending average throughout the year, blanked the Miners' Library and propelled his teammates to a 7-0 victory last night. It was the first shutout of the season for Morrice. In last night's game, the Pronghorns rifled in four straight goals in the second period and another three in the final stanza to dump the Miners'. Mike Weisgerber, Mike Horn- berger and Wayne Lazarick scored a pair of goals in the win while Walter Tunow added a single. In the other league game staged last night, the Labor Club Athletics and Lethbridge Community College fought to a 5-5 stalemate after three periods. The two clubs were deadlocked at 2-2 after the first period and 4-4 after the second. Al Rowntree, Ken Klinkham-mer, Don Klinkhammer, Duane Hubers and Bill Christie scored for the Athletics while Greg Edeen, Cam Hodgen, Norm Mc-Halis, Ross Allsop and Marvin Yellowhorn's goal at the 16:24 mark of the final period proved to be the equalizer. Richey of San Angelo, Texas, plays llth-seeded Nikki Pilic of Yugoslavia. Both Bengtson( a towering unseeded Swede who used his tennis experiences to write his doctorate thesis in psychology in 1971, and Dibley, winner of one World Championship Tennis tournament' this year, were unable to hold service in the first set. But Bengtson held all the way in the second while Dibley was struggling to get his devastating first serve in consistently, "I didn't hit many first serves in today and gave Ove a chance at my second serve and he played well," said Dibley. "I played a lot of loose balls today and got only about five per cent of my serves in. "Usually I get about 60 per cent of them in. You lose confidence when you start playing like that." Emerson had problems returning Dent's service but found chinks in his opponent's backhand game at crucial points. "He's got a good forehand and I like to see the volleys occasionally," said Emerson who now has beaten Dent three times this year. Smith, nearly a foot taller than his Davis Cup team-mate, battled from the baseline against Solomon because "he hits some of the best passing shots I've seen." Neither used their serve to advantage. Minor hockey Mark McKinnon scored three times and lifted the Falcons to a 10-3 victory over the Pinto's in Pee Wee action Wednesday night. Darin ChaM and Terry Ham-, ilton chipped in with a pair of markers while Kevin Hamilv ton, Jon Low and Jim Ried-Ihuber added singles. Randy Colling, Bryce and. Mark Cameron notched a goal apiece in a losing cause. In another Pee We match, the Canucks and Blues fought to a 2-2 draw. Grant Wighi and Steve Holt scored for the Canucks while Russell Coulter and Gordon Tait replied for the Blues.
