You would almost think they enjoy hot water. It's amazing and I don't have to be the one to tell you, just ask coach Earl Ingarfield or general manager Bill Burton the transition that takes place when the Broncos leave the outskirts of Lethbridge. And it is depressing to see Ingarfield and Burton racking their brains trying to find a solution to the problem. I realized the immensity of the problem when Ingarfield said that he didn't want to pan anyone in particular. He felt he didn't want to mention names publicly at this time. The problem, I would suspect, is bothering him a great deal. It has to be for him to even think it. This is not Ingarfield's way of doing things. He has always been able to face any problem head on. But this time it's different. When Ingarfield played professional hockey he was able to pitch in and help out in a given situation. Now he is almost helpless. Oh, he can certainly give his very able guidance. But he can't leave the box and throw a check or take a man off the puck. That has to be done by the players and to date it isn't be- ing done once the team is on the road. The key to any team's success is their ability to win in the other guy's rink. With that being the key, the Broncos will have trouble opening the door to a playoff berth if things follow the present path. I can't sit at my typewriter and pass judgment on the team for games I have not seen. It wouldn't be fair to any of the players or the Broncos' officials. I can truthfully say that at home the club has played ex- citing, entertaining hockey. They had to have just to have drawn the fans they have. But what I must do is inform you of what the Broncos are doing and that, at the moment, is not playing well on the road. In all fairness, the current World Junior Hockey cham- pionships have hurt the Broncos as much, if not more, than any team in the league. Each club was asked to give up'two players. The Broncos lost Bryan Trottier and Brian Sutler, their first and second high scorers respectively. But the game that brought the recent knock on the Broncos, an 11-2 thrashing at the hands of the Medicine Hat Tigers, can- not be benefited by the absence of Trottier and Sutler. The Tigers are always tough at home. The two stars were missed but a nine-goal difference? In their lasl seven road games Ihe Broncos have given up 60 goals, that's almost nine per game. "It has lo says Burton. And he means what he says. As I have pointed out, I can't rap the players for Ihings I haven'l seen them do. I can, however, queslion Iheir allilude. I'm sure it can't be Ihe treatment Ihey receive. I know for a facl lhat Ihe club is as well Ireated as any team in the league and in all likelihood a lot heller than most. Burton makes it clear the team is one of the best paid. What could bring about such a change in opposition arenas? I have talked lo every player on Ihe leam and they are all in full agreement that they love lo play hockey in Lelhbridge. The leam is first class, the fans are great so what more could be asked for? No one would be upset if the team was losing 4-3 or 5-4 but 11-2 and 13-1? Burton hinled al maybe some of the players leave a little of their stomachs at home. Maybe it's pride. We all know how the Broncos to a man display Iheir pride al home. Could it be they leave it in the locker room before hitting the road? No one is hilling Ihe panic button. Bui Ihe problem is slill Ihere and only the players can change Ihe situation.

Dennis McLean scored three goals, including the winner, lo lead Ihe Centen- nials in Ihe game played in Regina. The loss was Ihe fiflh slraighl for Ihe Pals. Calgary's olher goals were scored by Don Ashby with two and Jeff Bandural with one. Dave Faulkner netted three goals for the Pats and Mike Wirachowsky one. The teams were tied 1-1 after the first period and Calgary led 3-2 after the second. The Pats came close to get- ting the equalizer in Ihe third period when Faulkner scored his Ihird goal of Ihe game to cut Calgary's lead lo 5-4. But just seconds after the Pats had pulled goalie Bob Mahnic in favor of an extra attacker, Ashby scored into the empty net on a shot from inside his own blue line. The Pats outshol Ihe Centennials 48-22. In Saskatoon, Bill Oleschuk recorded his second shulout of the season with the Blades victory. In Kamloops, Chris Dyer scored in the third period to give the Chiefs the win. Medicine Hat led 2-1 after the first period, but Kamloops tied Ihe score 2-2 going into the final frame. Reg Kerr scored two goals to lead the Chiefs with Brad Gassoff and Dyer picking up singles. Darryl Durrand, Barry Dean and Jim Bertram scored for the losers. Tiger netminder Ken Holland slopped 42 shots while Chief goalie Mike Pristner kicked away 37. CALGARY 6 REGINA 4 First Period: 1. Regina, Faulkner (Harazny) Calgary, p.

Sanderson) Penalties Fleck NW, Williams North Stars battling among themselves THE CANADIAN PRESS Bill Goldsworthy of Minnesota North Stars dis- covered Friday his new self- assigned role as peacemaker doesn't really suit him. The 30-year-old native of Kitchener, Ont., known for his aggressive style of play on the ice, tried to break up a fight among some of his team- mates early Friday and ended up with a severed tendon in one finger and cuts to both hands for his effort. A spokesman for the National Hockey League club said Goldsworthy apparently tried to break up the alterca1 tion and "was pushed through the glass door on a fire ex- tinguisher" at the Pittsburgh hotel where the North Stars were staying following Thurs- day night's 6-3 loss to the Penguins. In Friday night's only game, Buffalo Sabres and California Seals played to a 2-2 tie in Oakland. "Dennis Hextall, Jude Drouin, John Flesch and Alain Langlais were the four players said Dick Dillman, the team's public relations director. The fight apparently stemmed from accusations by some players that others had not hustled during the Pitt- sburgh club's 19th consecutive game on the road without a victory. Goldsworthy is the team's leading scorer this season with 22 goals and 17 assists. He will be lost to the club for at least two weeks. At Oakland, Sabre defen- ceman Jocelyn Guevremont drilled a screen shot through the legs of California goalie Gilles Meloche at of the second period for the tie. The Sabres grabbed a 1-0 lead at of the first period when Gilbert Perreault beat three defenders before tuck- ing the puck past Meloche. California tied it at of the period when Butch Williams converted a rebound the Sabres were two men short and Dave Hrechkosy made it 2-1 for the Seals with his 16th goal of the season at of the second.

Finley lost a court battle Friday to overturn a baseball arbitra- tion ruling, but said he will take his fight to keep Jim (Catfish) Hunter "all the way." "This is not the end .of this Finley told newsmen as he left an Alameda County Superior Court hearing after losing another round in his battle to uphold baseball's reserve system. "I'll go all the way if I have he said, apparently refer- ring to the United States Su- preme Court. Finley and his attorney, Neil Papiano, had sought a preliminary injunction over- turning the Dec. 16 finding by arbitrator Peter Seitz that Hunter, 28, was exempt from the reserve system and free to negotiate with other teams. Seitz ruled that Finley vio- lated Hunter's contract by withholding half of his salary for 1974. Hunter's con- tract stipulated he be paid in salary and in non-taxable deferred compen- sation for both 1974 and 1975 in the form of an insurance an- nuity. Hunter, who last season won 25 games and the American League's Cy Young Award, signed last Tuesday with New York Yankees for a reported million five-year pack- most lucrative in sports history. "I think the award should be Judge George W. Phillips told Papiano, "but I'm sure you'll proceed much further." Papiano, who called Seitz' decision "akin to giving the death penalty for a parking said he would file objections to the judge's rul- ing by Jan. 7 in preparation for taking the case to the state Court of Appeals in San Fran- cisco. "I'm real said J. Carlton Cherry, Hunter's chief attorney, in a telephone interview from his Ahoksie, N.C., home. "But we didn't expect the judge to rule any other way." Cherry said he thought "there was no way in the world" Judge Phillips' ruling would be overturned by a higher court. Gals hockey Lethbridge Hockey Hounds women's hockey team will take on Winston Churchill this Sunday morning at 11 o'clock. The two teams will clash at Adams Ice Centre in a regular Southern Alberta Midget Girls' Hockey League en- counter. Judge Phillips ruled that Seitz acted "within his jurisdiction" and said the question of whether he per- sonally agreed with the deci- sion was immaterial. Papiano had argued whether an arbitrator could legally rule on the subject of baseball's controversial reserve system which binds a player to one team throughout his career unless he is traded or released. Papiano also said that Finley would have been sub- ject to income tax fraud if he had paid Hunter the remain- ing in the manner the right-hander requested. Freitas and Judge Phillips both took issue with Papiano's attempts to liken Hunter's case to that of former National League outfielder Curt Flood, who lost a bid before the U.S. Supreme Court to be declared a free agent. Flood challenged the reserve system after his contract had expired with Philadelphia Phillies and he had been fully paid. "I don't think the Flood case is in Judge Phillips said. "There's all the difference in the world. He got his salary. Mr. Hunter did not get his salary." Meanwhile in San Diego, Ray Kroc, owner of the Padres, charged that Hunter used his club to increase the bidding. "He was going to the Yankess from Day Kroc said in an interview. "I feel we've been used. I'm a bad loser." Goalie still in a coma MONTREAL (CP) On Dec. 15, Ricky Picard, a 15- year-old midget hockey goalie stopped a rising slap-shot to his throat. He has been in a coma ever since. The youth's suburban Dollard Des Ormeaux midget team was practising, when the puck deflected off his catching glove and struck him in the throat. Ricky collapsed and his heart stopped beating. He was given mouth-to-mouth resuscitation and rushed to hospital. Doctors suspect Ricky Picard suffered brain damage while his heart was stopped. "I saw him today and he looked a little Gilles Picard, the boy's father said Friday. "Actually, the doctors think liis brain is dead, they're going to test again. LETHBRIDGE OFFICE FURNITURE LTD.

Attendance Broncos at home to Wheat Kings Lethbridge Broncos have been anything but hospitable to the Brandon Wheat Kings in two Western Canada Hockey League visits this season. In their first visit to the Sportsplex the Kings left smarting from a 6-2 belting. Things didn't improve on their second visit as they were blanked 5-0. Wheat Kings are in town for a third visit Sunday afternoon at two o'clock. The normal seven o'clock starting time for Bronco Sunday games has been changed so that hockey fans can watch Canada and Russia at on CTV. Broncos, still smarting from an 11-2 lacing New Year's Day in Medicine Hat, will be short handed for their game Sunday. Besides the fact Bryan Trottier and Brian Suiter are in Winnipeg playing for Team Canada, left winger Stan Jensen has hit the shelf for at least eight weeks with torn knee ligaments. Broncos will welcome the return of Trottier and Sutler for next Wednesday's game against Flin Flon al eight o'clock and Friday's eight o'clock visil from Win- nipeg Clubs. Sooners are tops THE ASSOCIATED PRESS Oklahoma Sooners, who overcame the dispiriting effects of being banned from post-season bowl competition arid national television ex- posure because of a two-year probation for recruiting violations, have been named college football's national champions for 1974. Southern California was a distant runrierup to Oklahoma. The Trojans, who edged Ohio State 18-17 in the Rose Bowl, received six first- place votes and points. They were followed by Michigan, Ohio State and Ala- bama. Notre Dame, the 1973 champion, finished sixth, trailed by Penn State, Auburn, Nebraska and Miami of Ohio.
