Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - February 22, 1974, Lethbridge, Alberta I 14 THE LETHBRIDGE HERALD Friday, February 22, 1974 Hockey world in state of shock By THE CANADIAN PRESS Coach Joe Crozier told his Buffalo Sabres: "We can't bring Timmy back go to work get in the playoffs, which he wanted." That was before a National Hockey League game in Buffalo Thursday night ngainst Atlanta Flames. Missing from the Buffalo lineup was defenceman Tim Horton, 44, who died of multiple injuries Thursday morning when his car went off a highway at high speed near St. Catharines, Ont., and' rolled over. "No finer person, team- mate or hockey player has ever said George Armstrong, who was with Horton during many years with Toronto Maple Leafs. Clarence Campbell, NHL president, said Morton's death was especially shocking be- cause he gave an impression of 'indestructability.'' Punch Imlach, Buffalo gen- eral manager, said Horton was "one of the greatest defencemen who ever played., an all-star, and it was fitting he was chosen as one of the three stars in his final game." Horton, who was in his 22nd NHL season, was picked as the third star of the game for his defensive play in a 4-2 loss Wednesday night to the Leafs in Toronto. King Clancy, Maple Leaf vice-president and Horton's coach both with Toronto and during his brief minor-league career at Pittsburgh, said: "Horton was a tremendous competitor, a great person. Nothing was too much, no task too great. There were no ifs, ands or buts. He did the job, injured or not." "He was the strongest skating defenceman in said Montreal general manager Sam Pollock. "The kind of guy ev- erybody wanted on his team." Harold Ballard, president of the Leafs, ordered all flags at Maple Leaf Gardens flown at half mast until after his fu- neral. Funeral arrangements have not been announced. There was a minute silence for Horton prior to Thursday's game against the Flames. Players on both teams wore black armbands. Dejected at the start, Buffalo came from behind to tie Atlantic 4-4. There also was a minute si- lence for Horton in Montreal before a game between the Canadiens and Vancouver Canucks. Horton also played for New York Rangers and Pittsburgh Penguins. He took part in league games, third highest total in the NHL.

(CP) About the only thing to be de- cided today in the final round of the Canadian senior men's curling championship was who will take second place. British Columbia, with a 9-0 record, clinched first place in ipth-round play Thursday night by beating defending Manitoba, skipped by Dr. Will McTavish of Winnipeg, 10-7. The B.C. rink from Trail consists of Harvey McKay, lead, Thomas Clark, second, Douglas McGibney, third, and skip George Beaudry. Saskatchewan, with a 7-2 mark, took the inside track on Must Cooke lose share of 'Skins NEW YORK (AP) Edward Bennett Williams, president of Washington Redskins, termed as "absolutely, completely a published report Thursday that the National Football League is moving to strip sportsman Jack Kent Cooke of his interest in the NFL team. "There is no move to strip Jack Kent Cooke of his Williams said in Washington. "This story is as false as anything I've ever heard." In New York, a spokesman for the NFL said only that the matter is not on the agenda of the league meetings which open next week in'Miami Beach. Cooke, in New York on business, was not available for comment. The report said thai the NFL would invoke a long- standing policy that prohibits majority owners of its clubs from holding control in other sports franchises. Cooke, who owns the Los Angeles Kings of the National Hockey League and the Los Angeles Lakers of the National Basketball Association, holds a 40 per cent interest in the Redskins. That ownership could increase to 70 per cent once the stock held by UK estate of the late George P. Marshall is redistributed. There was another report that Williams was attempting to form a syndicate to boy Cooke's interest if the NFL forces him to sell. Cooke purchased S per cent of the Washington team in 1958, paying Harry Wismer Wismer, at that time, sold in order to organize the New York Jets of the old American Football League. The venture was Cooke's first step into major league sports when he moved from Toronto and became a U.S. citizen in I960. He has added to his holdings with the'Skins'since then and moved into hockey, basketball and boxing as well. He also btriH the forum in suburban Inglewood. The building is the home of the Lakers and Kin s. second place by defeating Newfoundland 108. However, third-place Prince Edward Island, 6-3, could take the runner-up shot by defeating Saskatchewan today. P.E.I, was crushed 13-4 Thursday night by Nova Scotia, Northern Ontario beat Ontario 9-5 and Alberta beat Quebec 6-4. The final round, at 10 a.m. EST today, also had B.C. against Quebec, Nova Scotia facing Alberta and 5 Ontario playing New Brunswick: New- foundland got the bye. Beaudry said after his win over Manitoba: "Manitoba gave us a" good fight. They were really up for the game." Beaudry was the second on Roy Stone's runner-up foursome from Trail which lost a playoff 9-8 to McTavish last year. "It was nice beating him after last Beaudry said. B.C. was up 4-1 going into the fourth end but McTavish engineered a brilliant four- point end. The Winnipeg skip drifted his last rock in behind a B.C. guard and split two counting opposition stones. Beaudry duplicated McTavish's effort in the next end for three points. B.C. had a big break when the doctor slipped as he left the hack and was unable to complete his throw. Beaudry took advantage of the miscue for the three-ender and outduelled McTavish the rest of the way for the victory. Littler 67, a stroke up FORT LAUDERDALE, Fla. (AP) Veteran Gene Littler solved brisk, gusty winds with a five-under-par 67 and took a one-stroke lead Thursday in the first round of the Jackie Gleason golf tournament. Littler, 43, was bolstered by what he called "my best putting round of the year1" in his romp over the Inverrary Country Club course. He used only 28 strokes on the greens 12 on his front nine in establishing a one- stroke advantage over Tom Jenkins, alone in second at 68. Australian Bruce Crampton, Lee Elder, Kermit Zarley and Jim Wiechers were tied for third, one stroke behind Jenkins, at 69. Defending champion Lee Trevino was in at 70 and was tied with Larry Ziegler. Masters champion Tommy Aaron had a 71 and 61-year-old Sam Snead matched par 72, but some of the other big guns bad their problems with the slow greens and tricky winds. Johnny Miller, a three-time winner this season, was over par for the second time this year with a 73. Jack Nicklaos had potting troubles and took a 74.
