Lethbridge Herald (Newspaper) - February 21, 1973, Lethbridge, Alberta Wednesday, February 2', 1973 - THE IETHBRIDGE HERALD - H Pffifflli'ilSllli'i'lililii'lBl1T SULLY SAYS I -By Pat Sullivan j THE RESULTS of the 1973 Lethbridge Curling ' Club's Shirtsleeve Bonspiel convinced me of something I have thought for a long time. Something must be done with the Lethbridge curling situation, particularly when it comes to play outside the quiet confines of home. I spent a portion of five days last week at the Curling Club. I remember I did the same at the annual Grey Cup Rainbow event and last year's Shirtsleeve. What I saw impressed me. I think Lethbridge has some excellent curlers. This year Scott Henderson went unbeaten in 12 games to win top honors in the Shirtsleeve, last year Lyle Davis did the same thing. At the Rainbow event Lawrence Lennon was undefeated. The results of just these three 'spiels told me something. We can do better in interprovincial play than we have in the past few years. The potential is, there. I covered the southern Alberta men's playdowns this year and saw Davis drop two straight' games which ehminated him. Last year he fared somewhat better. But this year I watched himi lose two toughies. j think I know why. I'm not professing to be an expert, far from it. But in conversations with different scribes and curlers from other parts of the province I have come to a conclusion. Lethbridge curlers are going to have to forget about buddy-buddy rinks and get down to some serious play. I think the weekly square draw is a great idea. Lots of fun can be had. But it doesn't do a tinker's *!*?� for preparing a rink for play in something the calibre of the southern playdowns, now does it? I watched Davis miss two simple shots that had him talking to himself. He would never do that in the square draw or in a bonspiel of any importance. Yet in the playdowns, when he wanted victory more than anything, something was missing. Could it be the fine competitive edge he can't maintain in a square draw or a weekend bonspiels? I would say yes. Davis, Henderson and Lennon are just three of the experienced skips that play at the Lethbridge Curling Club. How many southern Alberta titles do we have to show for their talents? I'm not condemning these fellows, nor any other curlers. I just think we're missing the boat. What I would like to see would be a major men's league. A cream of the crop gathering where the fittest will survive. I want to see, through some means of competition or elimination, the best skip, third, second and lead emerge and carry Lethbridge hopes into a southern final. I said I thought we, as a whole, were missing the boat. Maybe it's me who is wrong. But I can't for the life of me believe we all wouldn't like to see an Alberta championship pennant waving at the Curling Club. ? ? ? ' Is, Joe Frazier washed up physically? People -must be wondering. I hadn't thought of him being in poor physical shape until this week when he took part in the Superstar competition. You'll recall he couldn't lift 170 pounds over his head. Blair Orr, a Canadian karate champion, happened In the office Tuesday and saw a picture of Frazier struggling with 170 pounds. Orr indicated something was wrong with Frazier physically. Then I recalled two other instances that made me think. The first one was the quick chat I had with Ozzie Stubbs a few days back. He had gone to Calgary to watch the fight and remarked that Frazier was wearing his trunks higher than he had ever seen him do so. "He might have been trying to make a smaller target," joked Stubbs "but I can't help thinking he may have been hiding a bit of a paunch." Stubbs' experienced eye would notice something like that. Secondly, I just finished the interview with Frazier in a girlie magazine - my wife bought it for me -and he didn't sound right. He rambled on and on and made very little sense at times. He says he has never felt better. He also stated that he lifted 300 pounds without any1 trouble and yet he couldn't get 170 pounds over his head. That, to me, doesn't sound like a man in good physical condition. What do you think? Ingarfield says 'I can't play for them'-Islanders By IAN MacLAINE Canadian Press Staff Writer Boston Bruins, jolted into reality by a furious blitz in the first period, rebounded from a four-goal deficit Tuesday night to edge Vancouver Canucks 7-6 o mgoals by Bobby Orr and Ken Hodge. Orr, Bruins' superstar defen-ceman who has been accused of slowing down in the wake of a succession of knee operations, and Hodge, often included in any mention of possible trades to strengthen the Stanley Cup champions, scored less than two minutes apart. It was Orr's 8th of the year, despite a late start, and Canucks had Bruins down 4-0 once Hodge's 3lst that overcame a 6-5 Vancouver lead and lifted Boston to within two points of s e c o n d-place New York Rangers in the National Hockey League's East Division race. The Canucks, a distant seventh in the East, ripped 19 shots at veteran Boston goalie Ed Johnston in the first period, beating him four times-three within a space of about four minutes. The Bruins took a 5-4 lead into the third period but found themselves behind again when Gerry O'Flaherty and Barry Wilkins tallied unassisted goals 17 seconds apart, setting the stage for Boston's late heroics. WSm. Elsewhere, Philadelphia My-| t ers, with Bobby Clarke helping I on four goals, snapped St. Louis Blues' home ice win streak at six games 5-3, while Pittsburgh Penguins rang up New York Islanders' 50th loss of the year, 4-0, behind the shutout goaltend-ing of Jim Rutherford. Montreal Canadiens, six points atop the East Division standings, are in Chicago tonight against the Black Hawks who hold a seven-point margin over Philadelphia in the race for first in the West. In other games, Toronto Maple Leafs entertain fledgling Atlanta Flames, New York Rangers visit Los Angeles Kings, Boston Bruins are in Oakland against California Golden Seals and St. Louis is at Minnesota North Stars. Greg Sheppard, Fred Stanfield, Phil Esposito, Carol Vadnais and. Don Marcotte shared the other Boston goals as the Bruins, who had shaved Vancouver's early lead on Shep-pard's first-period score, went ahead with four unanswered goals in the second period. Esposito, who also picked up two assists, now has 93 points atop the NHL scoring race eight ahead of runner-up Clarke. Clarke's 85 points makes him the highest scorer in the West Division's history, surpassing 82 compiled by Red Berenson in 1968-69 with St. Louis. Bob Schmautz, Jocelyn Guevremont, Andre Boudrias and Barry Wilcox tallied the first - period goals for Vancouver. Bill Flett's second goal of the game and 33rd of the year, at 2:18 of the third period, lifted the Flyers to victory at St. Louis. The loss left the Blues two points behind third-place Minnesota in the West and three points ahead of Los Angeles and Atlanta. Bill Barber, Rick MacLelsh's 37th of the year-padding hia club record-and Ross Lon-sberry late in the contest also hit for Philadelphia. Pierre Plante, Fran Huck and Phil Roberto had rallied the Blues from 2-0 and 3-1 deficits to tie the score. Bickering must be stopped Whitaker voices opinion TORONTO (CP) - Denis Whitaker, chairman of the Canadian equestrian team, called for a halt Tuesday to bickering over the 1976 Olympics scheduled for Monday. At a news conference called to announce the equestrian team's program for 1973, Whitaker said: ' "I think it's time that everybody in the sports field stopped sniping at the Olympics and realize that we are going to have them, come hell or high water. "We must make a success of them and the only way we can do that is for everybody to get behind them and give it an all-out effort to make sure that the Olympics in Canada are the best that have ever been held anywhere in the world over the past 76 years."

Mark Lalonde, Federal Minister of Health and Welfare, will be a Lethbridge guest March 24, a Saturday evening. One of the main reasons for Lalonde's visit will be to address the athletic awards banquet for the University of Lethbridge. It is also expected that he will see first-hand, the facilities in Lethbridge and southern Alberta which brought the Games here. Further information regarding ticket sales, the types of athletic awards and the recipients, will be announced at a later date. The dinner is set for the U of L and will be open to the public, While he did not single out any of the Olympics critics, Wnitaker's remarks were apparently aimed at those who have suggested the Montreal Olympics may run into a deficit which might have to be paid off by the federal government. PLAN EXPANSION Whitaker said the equestrian team's program for this year calls for an expanded schedule of competition to help develop young riders for 1976 and continuation of a scholarship program started last year. Included in the competition schedule are provincial championships leading up to a national final. This year, there will be a Prairie championship, with jumping events in Regina, Saskatoon, Brandon and Winnipeg to be held in early spring, followed by an Alberta championship in May and the Ontario, Laurentian and Maritime finals later in the season. There are 28 competitions in the team's calendar this year, including jumping, three-day-event and dressage. Jumping competition begins March 27-April 1 at Regina and ends at the Royal Winter Fair here Nov. 9-11. "We are on a four-year march to the Olympics," said Whitaker. "Our drive for depth, as well as excellence, should reap dividends in medals by 1976." WINNERS OF THE "SHIRTSLEEVE BONSPIEL DRAWS" Sponsored by the LETHBRIDGE CURLING CLUB were: WAYNE TERRIFF of Lethbridge HARVEY BOURASSA of Fort Macleod ARCADIA, Calif. (AP) -| Jockey Eddie Belmonte must spend a week to 10 days in the hospital but still must consider himself lucky. A horse's hoof missed his head and hit him in the thigh. Belmonte was aboard Auto-bi-r ography, the handicap champion of the United States in 1972 and one of two thoroughbreds which had to be destroyed Monday at Santa Anita race track. Belmonte, 29, was thrown to the dirt when the five-year-old broke his left front leg. An instant later and one-sixteenth of a mile farther on, the Argentine-bred Tuqui II also broke his left front leg. He went down and Alvaro Pineda flew over his head. A third horse ran into' Tuqui but wasn't injured. Dendron, Autobiography's stablemate, kicked Belmonte but jumped over Pineda. An examination of Belmonte showed he suffered a concussion, a bruised left thigh and numerous after cuts and bruises. There were no broken | bones. His injuries were serious enough for Dr. Donald Matern to say the Puerto Rican-born rider would be in hospital at least a week. A spokesman at Santa Anita ] said Autobiography had been insured for $1 million and Tuqui I II for $50,000. Interest centred on Autobiography, winner of the Jockey Club Gold Cup by 15 lengths last year at Aqueduct in New York over Key to the Mint and Riva Ridge. Owned by New York contractor Sigmund Sommer and | trained by Frank Martin, Autobiography earned $384,809 the last two years of racing and it was estimated would have been worth $1 million or more if syndicated for stud. Veterinarians said there was | no way to save the two valuable thoroughbreds. Horses cannot I operate on three legs, even at stud, and those broken legs had been shattered with no possible | repair.

Four-Two was the big number on the World Hockey Association scoreboard Tuesday night, but not for the Canadian entries. Quebec Les Nordiques and Ottawa Nationals both came out on the short end of 4-2 scores to Chicago Cougars and Los Angeles Sharks, respectively, while the surging Philadelphia Blazers posted a similar score over New England Whalers. In the only other game, Cleveland Crusaders moved four points ahead of New England in the Eastern Division race as Ron Buchanan scored the winner and set up two earlier scores in a 54 decision over Alberta Oilers. Tonight Alberta visits New York Raiders. Jan Popiel scored twice, Andre Gill kicked out 38 shots, and the Cougars prevented Quebec from getting back into the playoff hunt in the Eastern before 6,055 Quebec fans. Rosaire Paiement and Rick Morris notched the other Chicago goals, Michel Harvey and J. C. Tremblay replying for Les Nordiques. The Cougars opened a 2-0 lead and were never seriously threatened, padding it to 4-1 before Tremblay rounded out the game's scoring at 15:19 of the third period. Third period goals by Fred Speck, his first for Los Angeles since being acquired from Minnesota Fighting Saints last week, and Alton White, his sec-end of the game into an empty Ottawa net in the final minute of the game, nailed the Nats with their 35th loss of the year. Gary Veneruzzo tallied the other Los Angeles goal in front of 3,059 fans at the Ottawa Civic Centre. The Nats got goals from Steve King and Gavin Kirk to tie the game at 1-1 and 2-2. The loss was costly to the Ottawa club when 21-goal scorer Jack Gibson, second highest scorer suffered a suspected broken cheek bone when high-sticked by Sharks' Jim Nie-kamp and will be lost for an undetermined length of time. BLAZERS IN 3RD Third period goals, by John McKenzie and Michel Plante also broke up a tight contest at Philadelphia where the Blazers, playing in front of 2,608 fans, jumped into third place in the east, one point ahead of New. Yoi'k. The Raiders are two points up on Quebec. Guy Smith and Tom Webster had rallied the Whalers from a 2-0 deficit early in the third period before McKenzie notched the winner despite being har-rassed in his efforts by New England defencemah Rick Ley. John Migneault and Ron Plu'ftb had given the Blazers their early lead in the second period. Buchanan's 29th goal of the season gave the hometown Crusaders a 5-3 lead at 6:31 of the third period. Joe Hardy, Ray Clearwater, Gary Jarrett and Bob Patenaude also tallied in front of a Cleveland crowd of 2,683. Rusty Patenaude, with two, Jim Harrison and Al Hamilton scored for the Oilers.
