The locals travelled to Bozeman, Mont., and came home with a hard-fought two- game split against the Montana State Jayvees, who incidently defeated the Oregon State varsity squad in an exhibition ball game. And if you didn't know it, this same Oregon State team upset the UCLA Bruins in conference play just two weeks ago. The locals split the weekend series by dropping a 101-66v decision Friday night and chalking up an 87-77 overtime victory Saturday. In Friday's loss, Gary Williams paced the locals with a 22-point outing while teammate Greg Hess chipped in with 16.

Smith, who stands netted 25 points in the win, but only 10 of the points were against 6'4" Schuler. Montana State had the sharp eye in the 40-minute contest as they notched 52 per cent of their field goals while the locals only hit for 29 per cent. Meanwhile Schuler was assigned to cover Smith Saturday night and was brilliant once again. Smith managed to sink 18 points in the exciting end-to- end battle which saw the locals leading 41-38 at the half and the clubs tied 73-73 at the end of regulation time.

Pronghorns, Huskies finish season sharing league cellar Albertans open with triumph VICTORIA (CP) Favorites came through as expected in the opening round of the Canadian women's curling championship here Sunday. But while defending champion Saskatchewan and well-regarded Alberta came through with victories, the favorites encountered unexpected difficulty from Eastern opposition. Saskatchewan, with skip Emily Farnham hoping to retain the national title for Saskatoon for a sixth straight year, needed a good early jump to defeat Dorothy Sedgewick of Fredericton, the New Brunswick representative, 9-7. And Edmonton's Marilyn Johnston, the skip of an Alberta rink that is being rated as Saskatchewan's chief threat, also made good use of a strong start to down a stubborn Quebec entry skipped by Freda Payson 11-7. Ontario, British Columbia and Prince Edward Island also scored opening-night victories before a turnout of fans. Skipped by Marion Radcliff e of Kelowna, the host British Columbia rink put together a steady game to defeat Manitoba's Merlene Derbyshire 7-4. Marie Toole of Charlottetown, skipping the P.E.I, champions, broke open a tight game with a four count on the seventh end and went on to defeat Sue Ann Bartlett of Newfoundland 10-5. Ontario, skipped by Dawn Ventura of Ottawa, scored an impressive 11-6 triumph over Nova Scotia's representatives skipped by Joyce Myers of Halifax. Winning and losing skips alike could find no great fault in the ice. Always a worry because of problems created by additional lighting and large crowds, the new ice drew favorable nods. Mrs. Myers said she "couldn't blame the ice" for her loss to the Ottawa rink. "I found it slick down the middle and sticky on the edges, but that wasn't our problem. We just started poorly."

Two Esk' players support Lalonde EDMONTON (CP) Two players with the Edmonton Eskimos have come out in strong support of Federal Health Minister Marc Lalonde's stand to oppose the World Football League moving into Canada. "What's at stake is far beyond says Bayne Norrie. "It's a country's identity. We are not supporting it solely from a football angle, but from that of the Canadian identity and how it will affect us long after our playing careers are over." Norrie and Dick Dupuis. both Canadians of the Western Football Conference club, said they made their statements after speaking with team- mates spending the winter in Edmonton. "We believe if the WFL of the National Football League comes into Canada, the Canadian Football League will be on very shaky ground and will eventually said Dnpuis. "I think Dick and I not only represent football players, but said Norrie. "A lot of people are going to say we have a vested interest. But we aren't going to play forever." "We think the money- grabbing ways of the new league will represent doom to Dupuis said. "What this really represents is the American business influence forcing... cultural ways on us, perhaps even in a megalomaniac manner." Norrie said most of the Canadians in football go to college for academic purposes. "The Americans, on the other hand, have to maintain an athletic scholarship. In effect, they are playing pro football in college.
