Lethbridge Herald (Newspaper) - January 6, 1971, Lethbridge, Alberta 10 - THE UTHBRIDOE HIRAID - Wadneiday, January 6, 1971- LAST CHANCE AT TITIE-Cassius Clay stood over Charles "Sonny" Liston after knocking him to the canvas at lewiston. Me., on May 25, 1965. It was a rematch *or Liston, who tried and failed to regain his heavyweight boxing title from Clay. It was Liston's last crack at the title. He was found dead at his Las Vegas home Tuesday night. See front page for detailed story. Eight teams see action Southwest tourney set Locals at home for three conference encounters Chinooks head into must weekend If Lhe University of Lethbridge Chinooks are to make a bid for a playoff berth in the Western Canada Inter-Collegiate Basketball League they must do it this weekend. The cards have been dealt and the chips are down. The Chinooks face a near do-or-die situation. Chinooks, in their second season in the western Canada conference, find themselves five games off the pace of the University of British Columbia Thunderbirds and two games from a playoff berth. Things, however, could change this weekend. Logan Tait, Chinooks coach, and his charges will have the home advantage in three encounters starting Friday and ending Monday and they will make good use of it if Tait has his way. At present the locals have a 1-4 record but with a sweep of games this time around they will reach the .500 mark and make a substantial jump in the standings. Anything less than a sweep would leave them battling for position again with a long road grind facing them. Friday evening the Chinooks meet Brandon Bobcats, Saturday they play host to the University of Saskatchewan Huskies of Saskatoon and then Monday the Regina Cougars pay a visit. All three games are set for the Civic Centre with eight o'clock starting tames. Brandon and the Chinooks have the same 1-4 records while the Huskies are 2-3. Regina has yet to win in five starts thus allowing Tait and his-club to be quietly optimistic with regards to the upcoming games. Chinooks, as has been the case since the season got under way, will be led bv centre Tim Tollestrup. After four years of play with Utah State Tollestrup, a native of Raymond, is back with the Chinooks and is currently leading the 10-team conference in percentage with a 22.8 point-average per game. Tollestrup trails Ron Thor-sen of the Thunderbirds in the soaring race. The talented Chinook star has 114 points in five games while Thorsen has been good for 153 in seven outings. Thorsen's average is 21.9 points per game. Brian Sanders, a second-year man with the locals has picked up 55 points in five games while another returnee Peter Kootch-in, has 43. Peter Hague and Randy Milner each have 42. For Brandon Bill Moody is the top scorer with 65 points in five games. Mike Vaira follows with 59 while Bill Warren and Dave Bauman each have 51. Bauman has played in only four of his club's 'games. Saturday night against the Huskies the Chinooks will face Wayne Dyck and Brian Eger, their top scorers. Dyck has 64 points as compared to 58 for Egers. Top men for Regina are Dan Hill and Wes Britton with 59 and 57 points respectively. Chinooks, since their last conference action, looked, sharp in the annual Lethbridge senior men's Christmas tournament as they dropped the final to an experienced Lethbridge Doug's. Tait will have the advantage of home floor, an almost must situation and the league's leading scorer, percentage wise, going for him. For first year coach Tait and his club this if indeed a big weekend. North Star forward fined $250 Campbell lowers boom on Walt INcKechnie MONTREAL (CP)-Centre Walt McKechnie of Minnesota North Stars learned Tuesday that it does not pay to argue with National Hockey League referees. McKechnie was tagged with a $250 fine by NHL president Clarence Campbell for an incident in which he attempted to accost referee Bryan Lewis in a New Year's Eve game in Pittsburgh. But McKechnie was not the only player to receive bad news from Campbell. Players on four Changes made, accommodate TV The annual Southwest Zone High School Basketball League tournament is scheduled for this weekend. Eight teams will take part in the two-d'ay event which gets under way Friday at four o'clock. All games will be play- Longdens train for other peoplome two goals while Don Johnson and Scott Davis tallied singles. For the Hawks Bill Hansel and Tyler Martinue replied with singletons. David Hovan came up with his third shutout of the season Tuesday as the Stampeders blanked the Eskimos 5-0 in mid' get league action. Doug McLaughlin scored twice to pace the winners while singletons went to George Irvine Jim Henderson and Bob Dodd TORONTO (CP) - Changes in the National Hockey League schedule to accommodate United States television were announced Tuesday. Don Ruck, NHL vice-president, said in a telephone interview the changes came about because Columbia Broadcasting System could not decide before the season started which games it would carry during its schedule of 13 Sunday afternoon games starting Jan. 10. As a result, Philadelphia Flyers will be host to Pittsburgh Penguins tonight instead of next Sunday, when the Flyers will play the Cana-diens in Montreal to open CBS's game of the week schedule. Short sport SCOUT RETIRES MONTREAL (CP) - Johnny Moore, 68, a top baseball talent scout for more than 24 years, the last 2% with Montreal Expos, has retired from full-time scouting duty, the Expos announced Tuesday. ? ? ? MAKING PROGRESS GLASGOW (CP) - The Victc, ria Infirmary reports that Stuart McMillan of St. Catharines, Ont., one of the injured In the soccer disaster here last Saturday, is making progress and may be discharged at the end of the week.

BELINSKY RETIRES LAS VEGAS, Nev. (AP) Veteran pitcher Bo Belinsky said Tuesday he is quitting baseball. "There is a time when every player has to step down." More sport on page 12 The Flyers and Canadiens were to meet at Montreal Jan. 12. Toronto Maple Leafs and Detroit Red Wings were originally scheduled to meet at Detroit in the CBS opener Sunday, but Ruck said early drafts of the 13-game format (there were between 15 and 30 drafts before the current one was selected) had an overdose of Toronto games. TORONTO IN SIX Ruck said one of the drafts had Toronto playing in six of the televised games. With the Montreal-Philadelphia game set for 1:30 p.m. EST, Canadiens general manager Sam Pollock has also approved a change in moving their Saturday night home game to Saturday afternoon to allow the players a longer period of rest. "What happened is that the NHL schedule was printed before we completed our television plans," said Ruck. "Because of printing problems, one of the early drafts went to the NHL office in Montreal and was used in the NHL schedule. "Naturally, a few changes were made afterward, the same as any other year." Ruck stressed that there was nothing wrong in having the Leafs exposed to the whole of the United States. He said CBS and the NHL were thinking of the difficulty for players playing Sunday afternoon games, with extensive travel and little sleep in between, "not the fact that it was the Leafs." Under the present schedule, Leafs appear three times, twice against Boston Bruins, Ruck said he knew of no other changes planned for the 1970-71 season. Badminton Club plays Thursday The Lethbridge Civic Centre Badminton Club will resume activities Thursday evening it was announced today. Following the break for the festive season sessions will be held each Thursday from 8-10:30 p.m. and again each Sunday from 2-5 p.m. A number of players have dropped from the club recently and the club is inviting anyone interested to attend a Thursday or Sunday session. NHL teams were fined a total of * $7,000 for leaving their benches to join ice brawls. Just before Christmas, Campbell assessed a total of $15,850 in fines for similar incidents. The McKechnie incident started when Lewis .handed him an elbowing penalty. The Minnesota player argued the point and was then slapped with a misconduct penalty for using abusive language. Campbell said that the player then went out of his way to obstruct Lewis while the latter was returning to his position and then received a game misconduct. FINE DOUBLED The misconduct cost the Minnesota player $50 while the game misconduct was $200. Normally the fine for a game misconduct is $100 but Campbell felt that the regular fine was in adequate in McKechnie's case and therefore added the extra $100 penalty. The first of the bench-clearing incidents occurred in a Toronto Maple Leafs-Philadelphia Flyers game at Maple Leaf Gardens Dec. 26. Fourteen Philadelphia players each paid the automatic $100 fine for leaving their bench to join the melee and 12 Leaf players paid $200 each, because it was the second such occurence involving Toronto players in less than three weeks. In addition, Flyers' goal-tender Bernard Parent was as-$100 for leaving his crease to take part in the activities. The Toronto melee broke out with less than two minutes remaining in the game as Brian Spencer of the Leafs and Bob Kelly of the Flyers were moving towards their respective benches for a routine player change before a faceoff. The pair collided and began fighting almost immediately. After the combatants were separated, Spencer punched another Flyers' player and the brawl restarted. ASSESSED TWO MAJORS ' For their parts in the Boxing Day activities, Spencer received two majors and a misconduct and Kelly was tagged with a major penalty. Both players were reported to Campbell by referee John Ashley. Spencer received a $100 fine for his failure to go to the penalty box plus the $50 assessed with his misconduct. Kelly was rapped with a $100 fine for failing to go to the penalty box when ordered. The second brawl took place in New York the next night in a Ranger-St. Louis Blues contest. Campbell fined 13 Rangers and 13 Blues $100 each for leaving their players' bench to join the fracas which was precipitated by a scrap between Bob Plager of the Blues and Ted Irvine of New York. The fight was broken up by the officials and the feuding pair, joined by Bill Plager, who had been given a 10-minute misconduct sentence, took their places in the penalty box. Then Barclay Plager skated by and shouted some remarks ELRICH TIRE SPORT SCORES *---------------- NATIONAL LEAOUE �ait Division W L T CENTRAL Boston ... New York Montreal . Toronto ..
