Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - January 6, 1972, Lethbridge, Alberta THI IETHMID01 HERALD Tnurnlay, Jonuory Bruins cool off Maple Leafs Blues buried by New York Ranger barrage By IAN MacLAINE Canadian Press Slaff Writer Emile Francis gazed despon- dently around Die New York Hanger dressing room Sunday night and mused: "It's (Hie game) gone, but there are plenty of games left. I'm confident we've got our best personnel ever and we know where we're going." The philosophical nole fol- lowed New York's 4-1 loss to Boston Bruins during which the Rangers had blitzed goaltcnder Gerry Cheeyers with 41 shots. True to his word, the Rangers showed where they were going Wednesday night, burying St, Louis Blues in a 50-shot barrage en route to a 9-1 victory to maintain their one-point lead over Boston in the National Hockey League East Division' and Bobby Orr, scored at To- race. j ronUi in the Bruins 2-0 win over Three goals by centre Jean the Maple Leafs.

It was announced today that Bob Uecker will be at the head table when dinner is served. Bob Uecker is a native Mil- waukeean who formerly caught for the Milwaukee Braves and has since become widely ac- claimed as a stand up comic and after dinner speaker. Uecker joined the staff of the Milwaukee Brewers in July, 1971, as a fulltime scout. He is a member of the Club's speak- ing bureau also. Signed by the Braves after his graduation from Boys Tech High School ir. 1956, Uecker was called up to the Milwaukee club after hitting .309 for Louis- ville of the American Associa- tion in 1961. He spent the 1962 season and part of the 1963 season with the Braves before being traded to St. Louis. After two seasons there and a season with he rejoined the Braves in Atlanta, in He retired as an active player after breaking a bone in his left hand during spring training in 1968 and joined the Braves' front office staff as a speaker, radio interviewer and tele- vision "color" man. Early in his baseball career, Uecker became widely known as a clubhouse wit. Some two years ago, his comic talents came to the attention of trum- peter Al Hirt, an avid baseball fan, who booked Uecker into his nightclub act in New Or- leans and arranged for his ap- pearance on Johnny Carson's "Tonite Uecker has since appeared several times on' Carson's show as well as on the David Frost and Merv Grif- fin shows and has made hun- dreds of appearances through- out the country as an after- dinner speaker.

Reporter says Howe will resign DETROIT (AP) Dave DiJes, the WXYZ-TV sports- caster who first made public the rumor that Gordie Howe was going to quit the Detroit Red Wing hockey organiza- tion, defended his statements on his Wednesday evening tel- ecast, even though Howe said earlier in the day that he at no time ever intended to leave the club. Diles said: "We reported last evening that Gordie went to Florida to give his resignation to owner Bruce Nonris. The story ia true and this is in no way to be taken as a retraction. Gor- die Howe has been disen- chanted and unhappy and he and his wife Colleen had de- cided to sever all ties with the Red Wing organization. "You may read whatever you like, but the story is true. The fact that Gordie Howe today remains with the organ- ization is testimony to his great loyalty to the club and the persuasive influences of owner Bruce Norris.

REGULAR PRICE THIS WEEK'S SPECIAL.......... 4099 ENERSON'S DOWNTOWN SHOWROOM Phona 327-5705 the distance as she lowered her existing world indoor record Wednesday night. Competing in the first annual Knights ol Columbus indoor track and field meet, Miss Tous- saint flew around the track in to break her previous world mark by six tenths of a second. The record climaxed Winni. peg's return to big-time indoor track after an absence of five years and nearly people gave her a standing ovation for her accomplishmest. George Woods of St. Louis, Mo., who came back to amateur track and field because the Na- tional Football League St. Louis Cardinals wouldn't let him play defence, set a Canadian open shot-put record at the meet. Silver medallist at the Mexico Olympics, Woods broke the Ca- nadian record of 67 feet, three inches set last week in Saska- toon by Al Feuerbacli of Long Beach, Calif, Bruce Simpson of Toronto won the men's pole vault with a Canadian record of 16 feet, nine Inches. He missed three tries at 17 feet Vi inch. Sam Cruthers of Long Beach finished second and Bill Hateher oC the University of Kansas third, both at 16 feet. Reynaldo Brown of Los Ange- les lived up to his billing as one of the world's best indoor high jumpers, clearing seven feet to win the event. For the second consecutive week, Debbie Brill of Hancy, B.C., holder oC the Canadian women's high jump record, failed U> clear five feet, eight inches. She finished fifth, having cleared cleared five feet, six inches on one of her three at- templs. Debbie Van Klckebelt of To- ronto won the women's high jump at five feet, 10 inches with Heather Welsh of Winnipeg sec- ond and Patty Wilson of WinnJ- peg third' Golden Seals romped 6-2 over Los Ar-geles Kings. Ratelle was also credited with an assist, giving him a season's total of 65 behind Esposito who assisted on Orr's linemates Bod Gilbert and Vic HadCieW also scored. The Ranger trio, nicknamed the GAG (Goal-a-Game) line or .Hot Line, added to their incredi- ble totals as. the league's top scoring unit (179 points) and the New Yorkers to their league- leading goal totals The only thing missing from Ratelie's performance was the usual sea of hats that follows a three-goal effort by any of the Rangers at Madison Square Garden. Most of them had been thrown to the ice earlier when it was inadvertently announced that Tkaczuk had scored his third goal, only to have it credited later to litiemate Bill Fairbairn. BRUINS HESITATE The Bruins appeared almost hesitant to score at Toronto al- though they handled the puck the Toronto end as if they owned it. Toronto goalie Jacques Plan'e had to be sharp on the shots they did get off as the Boston wingers tried to work in close. The game lacked the usual physical effort put out by both teams and referee Wally Harris called only two minor penalties, one to each team. The win enabled the Bruins to stretch their unbeaten string to 10 games. They have lost only once in 23 starts and moved to WHO'S GOT IT? Syl Apps (26) of Pittsburgh Penguins leuns ogainst Pot toti (12, left) of Chicago Black Hawks as rhey join Black Hawks goalie Tony Esposilo (35) and Jean Pronovost (19) of Pittsburgh in battle for puck during National Hockey League game Wednesday night at Chicago. Hoop tourney all set Picture Butte will be busy within one point of the Rangers. Boston can take the lead tonight at Buffalo against the Sabres while Philadelphia Flyers enter- tain St. Louis. The Black Hawks needed goals bv Danny O'Shsa and Bobby Hull in the third period to salvage the tie with Pitts- burgh. Two goals by Jean Pron- ovost sent the Penguins into a 3-1 lead before the Hawks re- covered. The only threat of violence be- tween the two clubs was a sec- ond-period "scrap involving Chi- cago's Stan Mikila and Bryan Watson of the Penguins. WIN FOR DeJORDY Pierre Bouchard's two goals helped the Canadians to shake their erratic ways in front of goalie Dennis DeJordy, subbing for injured Ken Dryden -who was placed in traction this week to help correct an injured back. Since Dryden's injury, the Canadiens have won two of six games and fallen well back in the East Division race. Montreal held down second place until Dryden's injury. They now trail Boston by six points and are seven ahead of Toronto. The win, fourth of the year over Vancouver, enabled the Canadiens to maintain their un- beaten streak at home of 17 wins and three ties. Goals by Bouchard and J. C. Tremblay .in the first period were matched by Vancouver's Dave Balon in the second. But Frank Mahovh'ch's 21st of the season staterd the Montrealers on a four-goal outburst early in the third period before the Can- ucks showed scores, with Hieir two Activity in the Picture Butte High School is quite normal with no signs of extra-curricu- lar events in progress today.

In the second encounter of evening, the Labor Club held a 2-1 lead after the first period of play, but the Pronghorns fought back to even the score 3-3 after the second. The third period was all La- bor Club as Gerry Klinkham- mer and Negrello scored back- to-back goals to salt away the victory. Bob Turner let a wicked slap-shot go past Labor Club's netminder Ken Brown at the mark, but the last min- ute bid was halted. Don Brucliet and Jim Culver rounded out the scoring for the defending champs while Dennis Klsio, Keith McDonald and Jim Ferguson were the other Pronghorns' marksmen.
