Cascades oust Lethbridge club COLEMAN (CNP Bureau) The Orowsnest Pass Cascades won the opening series in the southern Alberta juvenile play- offs recently at the Blairmore Arena. The Cascades belted the Lethbridge Miners 6-1 and com- bined with their 8-2 victory over the Miners in Lethbridge last weekend, earned the Pass club a berth in the next round of the playoffs. Crowell, 19, rated one of the better Junior B hockey players in Canada, says he's too old to make the National Hockey League, but "I would like to play good college hockey." "On taking the penalty at a crucial stage of the game, he said: "I didn't mean to trip him I was going for the puck." Coach Hughie Matheson was critical of the penalty. "It wasn't a good call at that stage of the game. With the score 3-2 and the importance i played, the referee shouldn' have called a penalty unless i was serious." In the B.C.-N.W.T. game Dennis Nuyli's second goal o the game at 15.48 of the thirc period gave N.W.T. the tie an eliminated B.C. from furthe competition.

"The judging was he laughed, "because I won." Both Miss Nicholsonand won golds as the best all-round performers. Miss Ni- cholson's other golds came in the balanced beam and the un- even parallel bars. She also won a silver in the women's floor ex- ercise, as Ontario picked up a total of 14 medals.

Newfoundland must win its game against the Yukon while Alberta loses heavily to Ontario, Drouin gets suspension MONTREAL (CP) Centre Jude Drouin of Minnesota North Stars has been suspended for bis club's next three National Hockey League games by league president Clarence Campbell for an attempted as- sault on a referee. The incident, involving ref- eree Bruce Hood and Drouin, occurred in a North Stars home game against Pittsburgh Pen- guins, Feb. 14. Drouin was as- sessed a minsconduct penalty and a game misconduct penally by Hood at the time. Campbell's decision to sus- pend last season's American Hockey League Bookie of the Year with Montreal Voyageurs, was announced Friday, fol- lowed further investigation of me incident. Following a Pittburgh pow- er-play goal in the second pe- riod of the game won by Minne- sota, Drouin accused Hood of favoring the visitors, Camp- bell's statement said. "When questioned by the ref- eree, Drouin repeated his accu- sation quite vehemently and for this he was assessed a mis- conduct penalty and the referee went to the timekeeper's bench to report the statement added. Drouin followed Hood to centre ice again instead of en- tering the penalty box and threatened Hood with his clenched For this move he was awarded a game miscon- duct by Hood. As the referee again turned away from the timekeeper's box, Drouin charged at him with his stick in the air. Drouin leaped at the referee and his stick struck the referee on he shoulder before the player could be hustled to his dressing room by his team-mates. NEW YORK (AP) Okay, golfers, so you want to cure that hook or slice. It's simple. Just take golf cart to the moon, suggests the man who directed most United SUtes space shots. "It's a sort of extrsvigmt adds Dr. Thomas Paine, former administrator of the Na- tional Aeronautics and Space Administration. "It weighs six tons, cost S400 million each trip and goes miles an hour. "But once on the moon, you don't have to worry about slices or hooks. The moon is essentially a vacuum. So the ball would have no spin. There would be no benders as we know them on earth." Dr. Paine was a stand-in Tuesday night for Capt. Allan B. Shepard, commander of Apollo 14, who was hooorel by the Metropolitan Golf Writers w the world's first lunar golfer. While walking on the moon I surface Feb. 6, Shepard suc- cumbed to an impulse and belt- ed a golf ball which he had stowed aray on his lunar mo- dule. He used a make shift club, a six-iron blade attached to one of his instruments. Shepard actually took two swings, qualifying him for the "Mulligan and he said, after striking the ball: "It goes miles and miles." "I wouldn't dispute said Dr. Paine "All I know is I saw the ball go off the screen. With the moon's grav- ity one-sixth that of earth, you would expect the ball to fly six times farther but you have to take into consideration that there is no atmosphere or virtually none on the moon. You would get tremendous roll the surface is hard, like beads. "Also, the dimples on the golf ball, designed to bite Into the atmosphere, would have no effect on the moon. Up there, you would use a perfectly click ball." While golf writers were hon- oring Shepard, golfs riling bodies with tongue in cheek were taking opposite action. The Royal and Ancient Club of St. Andrews, Scotland, which has been governing the sport for nearly two centuries, said Shepard should be penalized [or not smoothing out the sand. The U.S. Golf Association pres- ident, Philip Strubing, stripped the astronaut of bis amateur standing. SHEPARD A PROT "He admitted he took free gotf balls from his borne Strutting said. "That makes him a Depite the distance one can get off the tee, lunar golf wouldn't be all that pleasant, said Dr. Paine. "Putting would drive you he said. "It would be almost impossible to fink a putt. The ball would glide and slide and be almost uncontroll- able. It would be like putting under water."
