Lethbridge Herald (Newspaper) - January 7, 1971, Lethbridge, Alberta g - TH! IE7HBRID0E HERALD - Thursday, January 7, 1971  AND A RIGHT TO THE MID-SECTION-Andrew Herczeg di�plays a look of complete confidence as he lands a right to the mid-section of Guy Gaudette in an amateur bout in Toronto. The two boys belong to a newly-formed elub with 70 members. Heroin found in home Liston feared needles Orr, Esposito, Bucyk unanimous choices Bruins, Rangers dominate all-stars MONTREAL (C P )-T h r e e members of Boston Bruins were unanimous picks to the East Division all-star team that will meet the West Division team in the annual National Hockey League's all-star classic in Boston, Jan. 19. Defenceman Bobby Orr, centre Phil Esposito and left winger Johnny Bucyk all received the maximum 105 votes in the voting conducted by the National Hockey League Writers' Association, in the league's seven east Division centres. A total of five Bruins, six New York Rangers and a sia member of Montreal Canadians were named to the team announced Wednesday by the league. Aside from Orr, Esposito and Bucyk, other Boston representa tives are right winger Ken Hodge and John McKenzie. The six New York players named were goaltenders Ed Giacomin, and Gilles Gilles Vil lemure, defencemen Brad Park and Jim Neilson, centre Jean Ratelle and left winger Dave Baton. Defenceman Jean-Claude Tremblay was the lone Cana diens representative. TO ADD NAMES These 12 players will be augmented by an additional eight to be selected from the other East Division teams by Harry Sin-den, who will return to the NHL for the first time since guiding Boston to the Stanley Cup last spring to coach the all-stars. Sinden resigned from the Bruins four days after the team won the playoff title. LAS VEGAS, Nev. (CP) -Police say Sonny Liston was found dead with heroin in his home and needlemarks on his arms. But his former lawyer says the one-time heavyweight champion feared needles. "In my experience he was afraid of needles," C. J. Murphy told reporters Wednesday night after new tests were ordered to learn what killed the big boxer. "He would do everything he could to avoid taking shots." Murphy, a retired lawyer from Casper, Wyo., who had handled Liston's legal affairs since 1965, was asked whether the fighter used drugs. "Not to my knowledge," be replied. An initial autopsy Wednesday failed to uncover what killed am FERNIE Open Continuously Until Jan. 14th -Stetp slope* and powder snow for the expert -Groomed moderate slopes for the non-expert Site of the 1971 Pontine Cup Races Jan. 9th to 11th PHONE 423-6966, 423-6041, 423-6849 Liston, 38. His wife Geraldine found him Tuesday night sprawled on a bed in their 160,000 home. Authorities said he may have been'dead for 10 days. Authorities said a quarter-ounce of heroin was found in a balloon in the kitchen of Liston's home in the fashionable Paradise Valley section of Las Vegas. They said a half-ounce of marijuana was in Liston's trousers pocket, but that no narcotics paraphernalia, such as hypodermic needles, was discovered. OTHER TESTS PLANNED Tissue and toxological examinations were planned by the Clark County coroner's office to pinpoint the cause of death. Even as the former heavyweight king lay dead, plans were afoot in Europe to stage a fight between Liston and a European opponent. Jim Wicks, trainer of European and British heavyweight titleholder, Henry Cooper, said in London he had been ap- proached last week by Liston's manager, Howard Sheldon, on the possibility of Liston fighting against a European opponent. Only an hour after learning of Liston's death Wednesday, Wicks said he received a telegram from Sheldon inquiring about a fight with the former European heavyweight champion, Jose Urtain of Spain. "I'd just heard of Liston's death when the telegram came," Wicks said. "I'm absolutely staggered. "It's strange, but I can only think that Sheldon had not been in touch with Liston for the last week or so." Floyd Patterson, the man Liston knocked out to win the world title in the early 1960s, expressed dismay and shock. Patterson, in Miami Beach training for a Jan. 15 fight with Levi Forte, said: "Sonny Liston to me was a great fighter. I got to know him personally after our two fights and I rather liked him. I just can't believe he's gone now."

Herschock dies during game WEST HEMPSTEAD, N.Y. (AP) - Referee Andy Herahock of Philadelphia collapsed and died Wednesday night while officiating an American Basketball Association game between Memphis Pros and New York Nets. Hershock, 43, father of 11, who joined the ABA upon Its founding four years ago, went to the Memphis bench during a timeout late in the first period, complaining he was dizzy. While he attempted to rise from the bench he collapsed. Dr. Allan Levy, Net*' team physician, said cause of death could have been a stroke or a heart attack. Alouettes lost monev MONTREAL (CP)-Despite their appearance in the 1970 Grey Cup and increased attendance during the regular season, Montreal Alouettes of the Eastern Football Conference still lost money. "All the final figures aren't in yet," said Alouettes' owner Sam Berger Wednesday night. "But in spite of the Grey Cup our losses will be in excess of 5100,000." The problem appears to be the Autostade where the team plays its home games. It is currently owned by the federal government and leased to the Als. The football team, however, is responsible for upkeep and renovations. NATIONAL LIAOUI Cast Division Boston New York Montreal . Toronto ... Vancouver Detroit ... Buffalo ... Chicago St. Louis ... .
