It is hard to tell whether or not Standoff hockey falls prey to storm A snowstorm Thursday brought a flurry of activity at Winter Games headquarters, as two district hockey venues were scrubbed in favor of Lethbridge arenas.

At Adams Ice Centre, the replacement venue for Taber, sellout crowds watched New- foundland dump Prince Edward Island 7-4 and B.C. defeat Yukon by the same score. Table tennis competitors arrived Thursday morning in Taber belore the snowstorm, and all table tennis events went off as planned, said venue manager Bob Hagel. But some teams, hesitant about returning Thursday to Lethbridge, spent the night in Taber hotels. Mr. Hagel said this morning the decision to spend the night in Taber was made by each mission, with roughly half the athletes stay- ing and half returning to the athletes village in Lethbridge. the drop is due to the selective strikes by PSAC's general labor and trades group, he said. Meanwhile, in Calgary, postal delivery was restricted to post office boxes and first class letters in residential areas. Tradesmen and laborers began picketing the main post office downtown, as well as the mail processing plant near the international airport. Earlier picketing at the mail plant only did not stop mail delivery. John Hart, PSAC regional representative for Southern Alberta, said Thursday the strikes are effective where they are held. The federal employees cannot hurt the government by striking the way workers in private in- dustry can hurt their employers, he said in a telephone interview from Calgary. But by inconveniencing tax- payers, they can get action from politicians, said Mr. Hart. In dttawa, Postmaster General Bryce Mackasey said in the Commons that if strikes spread and hold up mail processing, pension cheques would be available from Unemployment Insurance Commission offices. In the case of disabled pensioners, the government might ask service clubs to deliver the cheques, he said. Cleaner picks up gold medal While Winter Games athletes continue to clean up on gold medals, a Lethbridge woman picked up a gold meu'ai for some cleaning of her own. Betty Johnson, 31f 7th Ave. S., collected her gold medal earlier this week as she was cleaning up'lhe lobby of Holiday Inn. "I saw this flat thing lying on the floor, all muddy, as if it had been walked over a few times: At first I thought it was a piece of cardboard or something." Mrs. Johnson, a nursing aide at Southland Nursing Home by day and a cleaner by night for a city cleaning firm, said today she didn't know what she had found. "I didn't know what it was, but I told a girl at the hotel what I found and showed it to her." The clerk at the Holiday Inn reported Mrs. Johnson's find to Games officials, who identified the errant medal. The gold medal, a member of the Quebec mission said today, will be returned to Quebec fencer Marie Louis Szoka, 20, who lost the medal shortly before returning to Montreal Monday.

NORTH LETHBBIDQE MWMM7-W1 By RUSSELL OUGHTRED Herald Staff Writer Two combatants dressed in sloppy white robes bow to the mat. Then they bow to the judge, Ready to grapple, they finally bow to each other. Grunts and yells follow as the two judokas attempted to choke, hold, pin and throw each other to the floor covered with bamboo and plastic mats. While the judge makes wild signals with his arm and shouts words of Japanese, of- ficials confound spectators by mysteriously recording penalties against each judokan on an, all-Japanese Scoreboard. For most Lethbridge residents attending Winter Games judo competition at Winston Churchill High School, the sport is puzzling and perplexing. "Judo is a sport as well as a means of self says Lethbridge judokan Guy Pomahac, 18, resting between Winter Games matches Thursday afternoon. "But it's a sport adds the winner of the Canadian middleweight championship in the Junior Olympics in Ed- monton last year. For Guy, who later lost to Ontario's Harry Nadolny and i Jack Hirose of B.C., judo's gladiatorial style of combat attracted him to the sport four years ago. "I started when I was 14, and that's considered old. Most guys will start when they're four of five." But dur- ing his four years with the Lethbridge YMCA team, coached by sensai Yosh Sen- da, Guy has worked his way through six belts, winning his black belt last August. Although judo is a' truly international sport, perform- ed around the world according to the same set of regulations, the style of training and com- petition varies in Western countries: 'Tt's a different attitude." Guy admires the Japanese devotion to the sport which makes judo not simply recreation, but a way of life. The Lethbridge club, he adds, is considering a goodwill tour of Japan this summer. Although judo is basically polite fighting, the ceremonies involved please Guy. The B.C. judoka, who even- tually eliminated Guy from the light-heavyweight semi- finals Thursday night, tears his pants. Judge Yosh Senda sends him off the floor to find a pair of untorn trousers. Discreetly undressing out of the view of spectators, Guy donates his pants to competi- tion Hirose. Auto reported stolen An employee of CJOC radio parked his car in front of the station, on 3rd Avenue, at 9 a.m. Thursday and returned an hour later to find it mis- sing. Donald MacLean, 2101 9th Ave. B S., told police he left the keys in the ignition.
