Anchors exciting victory for Raymond Comets Playoff bonus Wouldn't Joe Meli, captain of the Lethbridge Y's Men's Native Sons, like that. Actually what it is is a cheque for from the president of the Y's Men's Club Ernie Lawson. The Sons are heading into the playoffs in the Central Alberta Junior B League and the money will come in more than handy. Berger doesn't impress too many western clubs TORONTO (CP) There is nothing anybody can do to keep another football league from coming into the bigger cities, says Sam Berger, owner of Montreal Alouettes. That comment Wednesday might have cost Berger a few friends in the Western Football Conference, but it did nothing to ruin his relationship with John Bassett, owner of Toronto Argonauts. The WFC is convinced there is a conflict of interest between the Canadian Football League Argos and Toronto Northmen of the new World Football League. "All Western Football Weekend Windfall FrLtoMon.

Chevy Vega Conference teams feel that on the basis of information available to us, there is a conflict of interest between the Bassetts, Baton Broadcasting and us (the WFL and CFL) as it applies to the said Wes Munsie of Vancouver, newly- elected president of the WFC. Bassett said recently he has divested himself of all con- nections with the Northmen and turned over ownership of that franchise to his son, John F. Bassett, and his group. "We want the entire matter said Munsie after the WFC's annual meeting. Western members intend to take matters to the CFL annual meeting today.

Meanwhile in a Bantam "B" game staged Monday night, the Argos defeated the Hornets 2-1. The Herald had reported in Tuesday's edition that the Hornets had earned the win in the hard-fought match. conflict of interest, if a parent firm of both teams is one and Cie same, it is detrimental to Canadian said Munsie, also representing British Columbia Lions. The prime consideration in determining ownership of both the Argos and Northmen is that Baton Broadcasting, of which the elder Bassett is involved, is not connected in any way with the Northmen. John F. Bassett said recently that his connection with both the Argos, of which he was a director, and the broadcasting firm has been severed. Although Hamilton Tiger- Cats of the Eastern Football Conference are believed to be unhappy with the situation, it's doubtful if the elder Bassett will be asked to sell his Argonaut franchise. Eight of the nine CFL mem- bers would have to agree there is a conflict of interest in order to start banishment proceedings. Berger believes the Toronto owner is a "tower of strength to the league." "As far as I'm concerned, a father and son are different le- gal entities and Bassett has no control over the businesses his sons operate. As far as a vote goes, I think it would be an exercise in futility. I'm not surprised the WFC thinks this way, but I believe the feeling in the east is quite different and all I have to say is that everybody wants John Bassett to remain in the league."

Sunday, 24th p.m. TOP TWO TEAMS Henderson Perk tea Centra, Lethbridge Mows Stodmt SOe CMMrwi 10 FREE Senior CWnm no Support the Red Coals Jim Ralph brilliant under pressure By LLOYD YAMAGISHI Herald Sports Writer An athlete who performs outstandingly under pressure is an asset to any team and Bob Gibb, coach of the Raymond Comets is fortunate enough to have just this type of player. Jim Ralph, a veteran guard, proved himself to be the Comets' "pressure man" as he brilliantly led his teammates to an exciting 56- 55 overtime victory over the Lethbridge Collegiate Institute Rams Wednesday night. The heart-breaking loss never altered the Southern Alberta High School "A" Boys' Basketball League standings at all as the Rams still remain alone in first1 place with a 9-2 record. The Rams have already clinched a share of the league pennant title and can only be matched by the Cardston Cougars who sport eight wins and three losses. Both clubs have only one game left to complete their 1973-74 schedule. LCI Rams will face the Catholic Central Cougars and the Cardston squad takes on Magrath for their final tilts March 2. Meanwhile at the LCI gym last night, Jim Ralph was superb to say the least as he killed the Rams' chances of earning sole possession of the pennant title. The veteran guard started out slowly in the opening half of play and watched his teammates scrape up a slim 12-10 lead after the first quar- ter and a 20-19 deficit at the half. He began to go in the third quarter, hooping six points, but the visitors still trailed by two points 34-32. The final eight minutes of action was hot and heavy as expected and the pressure mounted as both clubs went all-out, playing a wide-open game. With little more than two minutes remaining, the Rams managed to jump to a solid 45- 40 lead which allowed them some breathing room. It seemed as though they'd be able to hang on for their 10th victory of the season, but it wasn't to be, as Ralph stepped into the picture. With 43 seconds left on the clock and the Comets trailing 46-42, Ralph displayed his unique ability to play under pressure by hooping two baskets within an 11-second span. Rams' lanky centre, Ron Shemanchuk. broke the 46-46 tie by tipping in a loose ball with 12 seconds to play, but it was to no avail as Ralph came back eight seconds later with two pressure foul shots which concluded regulation action at 48-48. It was more-or-less the same story in the three- minute overtime period as the Rams jumped to an early 53- 50 margin and held a 55-54 lead with 10 seconds left. But as was the case in the final quarter of regulation time, Ralph fulfilled the Comets' need by swishing a 10-soot jump shot with three seconds remaining. STAMPS SIGN DATRICE CALGARY {CP) Calgary Stampeders of the Western Football Conference announced Wednesday the signing of Jim (Dat) Datrice, a speedy running back from St. Mary's College in Northern California. In eight games last year, Datrice car- ried the ball 188 times for yards, averaging 5.3 yards a carry and 126.2 yards a game. He scored 11 touchdowns rushing and led the team in kick-off returns with 299 yards in 10 attempts for a 29.9-yard average. All told, Ralph led the Comets' attacked with 22 big points while teammate Jeff Hill notched 14. Shemanchuk was the top scorer for LCI with 16 points while Ross Blackmer and Kelly Wilde chipped in with 11 and 10 points respectively. The Rams came up with a 42 per cent field goal average compared to the Comets' brilliant 51 per cent average. Kodiaks capture pennant The Lethbridge Community College Kodiaks earned themselves the right to host the Alberta College Athletic Conference Men's Basketball League playoff finals Wednesday night. The Kodiaks travelled to Calgary and scored an impressive 114-53 victory over the Southern Alberta Institute of Technology Trojans in their final league game of the season. The Kodiaks placed first in the eight-team conference with a 13-1 record and will now host the ACACMBL finals March 2 for their second year in-a-row. Brent Fairbanks was the big gun for the Kodiaks last night as he hooped 28 points to lead his teammates. Al Pard notched 19 and Gary Williams 17 for the Kodiaks, who had seven players hitting in the double figures. Al Bennedett whipped in 14 points for the Trojans who trailed 58-24 at the half. The Kodiaks shot 54 per cent from the field and also from the foul line while the Trojans were good on 33 per cent of their field goals. Kendon Eakett suffered a sprained ankle in the contest and it is not known whether or not he'll be ready for their road trip to Bozeman, Mont, this weekend. Mount Royal and the Kodiaks have clinched berths in the finals. Three teams, NAIT, Red Deer and Camrose are still alive in the chase for the third and fourth berths. With the limited space available at the College reserved seats will be sold prior to next weekend's competition. Anyone interested in reserving seats for the ACAC championships is asked to contact Mrs. Ben Brooks at the LCC 327-2141.

Dave Koskoski whipped in 17 points and Morgan Munroe 12 for the Flyers while Lance Bevans and Ralph West notched 11 points each for the Wildcats. HOOP SHOTS The Comets' fans out-numbered Rams' supporters at LCI Jim Ralph was outstanding for the Comets, but Jeff Hill can't be counted out as one of the visitors' key players in the game Ed Davies of the Rams' scored only two points in the hard-fought battle, but was superb in other facets of the game such as rebounding, ball handling and play making Shemanchuk seems to have finally realized that he can drive in towards the basket for points.

A 1973 loss of and expected increased operating costs combined with tougher competition for new players due to the formation of the World Football League were given as the reasons for the price rise. With the increase, prime seats between the 45-yard lines would cost each and end-zone seats would sell for W. But club officials noted that if season tickets were purchased before April 4. the top seats would sell at a 10-per cent discount or still lowest in the league. Seasons tickets sold after April 4 would be discounted five per cent. Seats between the 30 and 45- yard lines would cost between the 15 and 30-yard lines and between the goal and 15-yard lines Houston Minnesota 31 26 Winnipeg 27 28 Edmonton 29 29 Vancouver 23 33 LA 21 38 2 216 4 243 3 221 5 184 2 189 3 182 Division 35 18 5 233 233 1 5 198 0 200 0215 0 173 A PIS 153 87 156 73 171 68 165 65 190 56 235 46 181 44 219 41 118 79 110 75 156 55 175 52 180 50 204 50 204 40 259 29 A PtS 56 106 65 89 40 79 30 68 35 65 35 62 46 61 27 60 A PtS 201 66 218 66 208 63 192 59 228 54 192 53 156 75 203 63 215 59 208 58 231 46 235 42 HOCKEY SCORES National Toronto 4 Buffalo 2 Boston 5 Minnesota 5 Philadelphia 3 Detroit 1 Chicago 3 California 0 St. Louis 1 Pittsburgh 1 World Edmonton 4 Winnipeg 1 Houston 7 New Jersey 2 Los Angeles 4 New England 2 American Rochester 5 Hershey 4 Nova Scotia 7 New Haven 5 Providence 7 Cincinnati 2 Western Seattle 6 Denver 3 Central Fort Worth 5 Tulsa 2 North American Syracuse 3 Binghamton 1 Johnstown 7 Mohawk 4 International Des Moines 4 Dayton 0 Columbus 4 Saginaw 2 Fort Wayne 7 Flint 5 Western Canada Flin Flon 6 Swift Current 4 Regina 9 Medicine Hat 1 Saskatchewan Junior Prince Albert 6 Humboldt 5 Notre Dame 5 Moose Jaw 3 Melville 5 Yorkton 3 B.C.
