Wonderful... No more taking a chance on watching the horses during a snow storm Besides, we get a new grandstand, maybe with facilities, for the working press? Joe Forrayi of the Lethbridge Tennis Club was ranked fifth this year in the province Not bad at all when you think of some of the professional competition he has to play Forrayi and his clubmates may just get an early start on the year if the weather holds out Bill West, the horse owner and trainer, when he departs from the City Police issue of blue with red stripes, tells me he and a number of Southern Alberta horsemen have been working out their animals while the weather has been so good to them Eat your heart out Scotty Munro The rotund hockey authority from Calgary Centennials of the Western Canada Hockey League let Randy Andreachuk of Lethbridge get away from him Scotty, who is right more times than wrong didn't think Andreachuk had the makings to survive the long haul of the WCHL How does 40 goals and 38 assists sound with a good chunk of schedule left... Not only that, it has come to the young man while playing with a last place club, Kamloops Chiefs He should hit 50 goals before the year is out Possibly even 90 or better points. The funeral services for Tim Horton, who came to an untimely death Thursday, will be held Monday in Toronto And for those of you, or us, who may have thought alcohol was involved in the death, it wasn't The autopsy showed no evidence of liquor of any kind Death was the result of multiple injuries and there will be no inquest I don't know if Wilt Chamberlain is happy with his new contract with the San Diego Conquistadors of the American Basketball Association.. I wonder just what it takes to make the big guy happy? In his last season with the Los Angeles Lakers of the National Basketball Association, the towering hoop giant banked All that without having to pay taxes, they were covered in his contract In the last five years with the Lakers, after three years at a year plus, Chamberlain made ALL TAX FREE He jumped to the San Diego club for a reported per season But it doesn't say if he has to pay taxes or not. I said it in Friday's column and I say it again Calgary getting the 1975 Grey Cup is one of the greatest athletic coups in Alberta sports history If this doesn't get Edmonton off their fancy backsides in their jousting with the 1978 Commonwealth Games nothing will. And as for co-workers Bruce Redman and John McKenna, Calgary has had comparable, if not better weather, than the host city in the last five Grey Cups... I can't stand envious guys Redman knows the Winnipeg Blue Bomber fans will have a long wait for a Grey Cup game in their city and McKenna has little hopes of a national final in the northern Igloo of Edmonton And my wife, bless her Italian heart, asked me if I had heard about the Irishman who threw his bomb on the ground and missed Watch the slopes at West Castle get scorched March 16 when the News Media of Lethbridge takes part in a Molstar race Hark, the Herald Angels shall rise to the occasion I really don't know how we'll do it because I think we have two guys with experience on the woods Bill Treber and Andy Ogle. However, after severly thrashing Ray Morton of the Canada Winter Games and the rest of the News Media in the Kinsmen Skatathon a while back, I'm sure skiing will come naturally to me.

The two dubs entered the two-game weekend series with identical 4-14 records and with only two games remaining on their league schedules. The Pronghorns mpre-or- less put themselves in the drivers seat with their victory over the Huskies since the worst they can do now is finish tied in the league cellar. The two clubs will meet in their final league game tonight at 8 30 at the U of L gym. Meanwhile in last night's encounter, the Pronghorns came up with a superb team effort to defeat the visiting Huskies in an end-to-end wide- open battle The Huskies had the edge in play in the first half as they broke the Pronghorns' defensive press at will. However, they bad more than their share of problems finding the hoop after the some six minutes of action and found themselves trailing 43-41 at the half. The locals weren't totally out of the game in the opening 20-minutes as they held the visitors off with fast breaks and sharp shooting. The second half of play went to the Pronghorns, who started to gel on defence while continuing their rapid pace on offence. An all out team effort could only describe the Pronghorns' attack as they held the visitors in check with aggressive rebounding, fast breaks and off-beat passing. Five locals hit the scoresheet in the doable figures and were led by Max Zaugg with 15 points and Phil Letham with 13. Teammates Larry Baker and Tom Raffetter chipped in with ii points each while Roger Baldry added another 10. Bob Thompson paced the Huskies with an 18-point outing while Mark Hopkins aided with 14. The Pronghorns had the hot hand shooting 39 per cent from the field compared to the Huskies' 30 per cent, but DUNLOP FORD COM. 1Ml AVE. AND M.M. DRlfE SOUTH i S SUNDAY.

The locals also out rebounded the visitors 45-42 and committed only 15 turnovers while the Huskies were forced into 23. Letham led the locals under basket picking off 10 rebounds while Hopkins grabbed 13 for the Huskies Meanwhile the U of S Huskiettes defeated the U of L Pronghorns 92-30 in a lop sided Canada West University Women's Basketball League game. Karen Kusler was outstanding for the Huskiettes as she hooped 20 big points while teammates Deb Borzel and Dot Czarnota chipped in with 14 apiece. Borzel was a star player for the Lethbridge Collegiate Institute Clipper Queens last year and is now attending the university in Saskatoon. Pat Schandor led the locals with 12 points and was followed by Sandra Knight with eight Meanwhile five players reached double figures in scoring Friday night as University of Alberta Golden Bears downed University of British Colombia Thunderbirds 79-70 in the opening game of the best-of- three Canada West University Athletic Association Basketball final. Mike Frisby ted the way with 24 points and Steve Panteluk had 12 for the Bears. Steve Ignatavicius, Tom Solyom and Bill Solyom hit for 10 each. Bob Dickson and Ralph Turner produced 12 points each and Dave Craig and Jim Patterson 10 each for the Bears, who trailed 46-30 at the half. In the women's preliminary, Liz Silcott hooped 24 points to lead UBC to a 66-46 victory over Alberta. Wendy Martin had 18 points and Amanda HoHoway 14 to lead the losers. HOOP SHOTS Tom Raffeiner and Roger Baldry were simply brilliant for the Pronghorns as they gave an 110 per cent effort last night.. The Huskies have a number of excellent players such as Thompson, Hopkins, Dean Fans and Gene Pavelich, but can't seem to keep up their momentum when they have it Although the Pronghorns and Huskies are in the bottom of the league cellar, I would say they have the potential to be right on top if they both had just one super player in their mist.
