I-Intermediate- TIMING AND COORDINATION At the beginning of each ski 'season, It Is important to work on your tiijiing and coordination. Timing is the key to skiing well. You must learn exactly when to rise up and start the un- weighted part of the turn, and when to sink down and drive the ski into its new position. It is important that you do not attempt to rush these move- ments; each separate movement is necessary for a smooth turn. Practise this timing and coordination in long linked turns back and forth across the fall line on an intermediate slope. Remember, it Is f once you have a few turns behind you. Minor hockey Three shutouts were regis- tered in Pee Wee division action Friday night. Brian Robinson's third per- iod marker gave the Totems a 1-0 victory over the Blues white Mike Craig and Billy Boyce slapped in a goal apiece to give the Canucks a 2-0 win over the Tigers.

OF CANADA LTD. 304 STAFFORD DRIVE, LETHBRIDGE PHONE 327-3125 SULLY SAYS i -By Pat Suttwanl rJTHE half way mark has been reached in the 1971- 72 season of the Alberta Junior Hockey League and things are rather bleak for the Lethbridge Sugar Kings. Kings are in a battle for the fourth and final playoff berth, and while there is no need to panic in early January, there is cause for a great deal of concern. The situation is deplorable. Last year the Kings lost to Red Deer Rustlers in the Alberta final. The Rustlers went on to win the Canadian junior tier-two crown. Rustlers lost 13 play- ers from the team that won the dominion title, Kings lost four due to age and all but four others to Scotty Munro and his Calgary Centennials. Munro, for the uninformed, purchased a half interest in the Sugar Kings prior to the 1970-71 season. As a result, the Kings are going no place fast. They are a mere two points out of sixth place in a league that has two expansion clubs, Calgary Can- ucks and Drumheller Falcons. Kings were blasted 10-1 by the Canucks Tuesday, a club that isn't nine goals better than any team in the league, let alone the Kings. The problem is sim- ple. Kings don't have the horses and no solution is apparent. When you're in fifth place the last thing you need is to lose your top scorer. The Kings did, to the Centennials of the Western Canada Hockey League. Munro and his club are in first place and the Kings nearly in last place but Mike.Clarke was called up to the Centennials for the remainder of the season. It makes no sense at all. Sugar Kings are, at present, calling Henderson Lake Ice Centre home. Hopes are, in the not too dis- tant future, that a new Arena will be built. For what? A grooming place for Munro's Centennials or his World Hockey Association Broncos? Who reeds it? Three years ago the Kings lost to the Western Canada champion Regina Pats with a team loaded with local talent. Since Munro has arrived on the scene even a program doesn't help. Before, you at least knew some of the players personally. Such is no longer the case. The people of Lethbridge are, in the very near future, going to be asked for donations for a new Arena, either personally or through taxes. How can you solicit for something which will be of very little value to our own sons and daughters, at least as matters stand now. Munro, as long as he has the bargaining power as part owner of the Kings, will continue to keep the Sugar Kings a glorified juvenile team. It has happen- ed before. When a young fellow shows promise, off he goes and most times does not return, or returns when the damage has been done as far as the Kings' are concerned. Munro told King manager Syd Hall that the Kings had best produce this time around or he would severe relations. Better words the Kings couldn't hear. The experiment didn't work. Officials of the Sugar. Kings, founding members of the Alberta League, have been unjustly criticized. They kept hockey alive when it was almost dead. I can remember nights when the players outnumbered the fans. We were on our way back heading into last season. Now, I'm afraid, we are on a downhill trend. I am also afraid officials of the Kings made a mis- lake with the Munro deal and I'm sure they realize it. Let us not condemn them. The first half of the season has been a long one or the Kings. They start into half number two this weekend with a game tonight at wih Red Deer Rustlers and with Drumheller Falcons Sunday at two. Kings are not going to win the Alberta Junior Hockey League this year, as it was perhaps thought after last year. There are too many weaknesses. Maybe things will be different next season. Pos- sibly Munro will sever relations with the locals and we can get back to being the LETHBRIDGE Sugar Kings. We aren't setting the world on fire with im- wrt players, so let's see what we can do with our own fellows. I would be remiss if. I didn't thank the fine people of Claresholm for their certificate of commendation afforded myself and The Lethbridge Herald for our support of the Summer Games held in ClareshoJm ast August. It was my pleasure to be of some assis- :ance, of which very little was needed. The Games went off without a hitch because you people made it so.
