Oleschuk, who went to Saskatoon from Lethbridge this season after brief stints with Edmonton and Winnipeg, took over the goaltending lead in the WCHL last week. He has a 140 goals against average following a 6-0 win over Winnipeg Clubs Friday. It was his second shutout of the season and tied him for the league lead in that category with Ed Staniowski of Regina Pats, Mark Earp of Kamloops Chiefs and Jerry of Medicine Hat Tigers. Earp is second in goals against average with a 3.49 record. Farwell, the previous week's leader, slipped to fourth place with a 3.70 average following a 10-2 loss in Victoria. Gord Laxton of New Westminster Bruins leads the goaltenders in minutes played with and in saves with Centre Mel Bridgman of Victoria Cougars continued to set the pace in the individual scoring race despite his absence from WCHL action last week.

Interested observers Bill Towsend, back left, and Herman Nieboer, back right, look on with interest. Insert at right is Senior Club president Jack McBeath who heads up the 95 members of the club. Old Timers' Curling Club active group By GARRY ALLISON Herald Sports Writer Retired, with nothing to do on these long winter after- noons? Why not take up curling? No, not with the Lethbridge Curling Club, but with the Lethbridge Senior Curling Club. The Lethbridge Senior Curling Club came into ex- istance in 1969, boasting 16 members and four rinks. To- day the club numbers 95 members, ranging in age from 60 to well over 80. Many of the men who were taking runs at the Shirtsleeve Grand Aggregate trophy and the provincial Brier playdowns 20 years ago are now enjoying curling like they never have before with the senior group. The club is under the guidance of Jack McBeath, an 82-year-old dynamo who can be found at the Lethbridge Curling Club at the Civic Ice Centre every afternoon dur- ing the week from If he's not on the ice curling he can be found in the coffee shop enjoying the fellowship of the members. Membership in the club is restricted to those over 55 years of age, but the club is more geared for the retired man or those nearing the retirement age. The membership, like everything else nowadays, has risen from the original to a year, but the enjoyment is well worth the cost. One of the largest senior groups in Western Canada, the club operates under a unique system. Every 12 games the teams are re-shuffled. This enables not only new com- petition but serves to break up "powerhouse" rinks. The real purpose of the shakeup however is to promote the fellowship in the-club as the members mix and meet with their new teams during the next 12 games. Mini-speils and socials are held throughout the year, giving the men the opportunity to win a few prizes and then enjoy a "stag" after with the members. The major bonspiel of the year is slated for the first week in March. Senior curlers from throughout Southern Alberta will take part in the bonspiel which many local businessmen aid through trophy and cash donations. Last year the bonspiel featured a rink which averaged 84 years of age. They totalled 336 years of experience. There is also a minimum total age per rink which is set prior to the start of the spiel. The club championship is also a highlight of the year's activities with the winner receiving the R. D. Farris trophy, presented in memory of the late past presi- dent of the Lethbridge Curling Club by his wife, Mrs. Dorothy Farris. Once again a social follows the bonspiel, only this time the wives of the members are invited. The senior curlers are as serious about their curling as any curler in Southern Alberta. They do, however, en- joy the hour after the game in the coffee shop where they can replay their immediate past games or those that took place a few years back in more serious bonspiel com- petition. Age is no barrier for enjoyment and skill, and when the seniors hit the ice they have as much fun and make as many fine shots as any curling club in the country. So, if you're spending your afternoons watching the movies on TV and would like to be doing something a little more exciting, and you happen to be retired, drop out to the curling rink any afternoon and Jack McBeath and his 94 friends will welcome you with open arms. We should know by this time Wednesday What changes are in store WASHINGTON (CP) Canadian football fans should learn .today whether they're going to recognize the old game next season. Chances are, they will. But if the Canadian Football League coaches and managers, meeting here, were to go for all the proposed rule changes, well: You'd find yourself howling "no metres" instead of "no yards" unless, of course, the kick-return man had signalled for a fair catch. But that shouldn't happen often, what with four downs instead of three in which to 'make 10 yards "or metres." You would be seeing 11 men instead of 12 on the field the best of a 33-man roster, increased from 32 by one Canadian. And you would either be cheering wildly or groaning inwardly or both as a defensive player wiped out the three points by running back a successful field goal from the end zone. These are only a few of 36 wide-ranging proposals for rule changes that were under study by the coaches Monday and to be taken up today by the CFL rules committee. Whatever the rules com- mittee under commissioner Jake Gaudaur decides, will be set before the annual meeting in Toronto on Feb. 20 for ratification. The CFL holds its coaches- managers meeting each year in conjunction with the American Football Coaches Association annual gathering. One. source points out that picking and choosing among Cardston in front of Raymond Cardston took full advan- tage of the hospitality afford- ed them by Raymond in Southern Alberta High School Basketball League action and came away with two weekend victories. In the junior varsity en- counter Raymond Mustangs grabbed a 21-15 half time lead only to drop a narrow 41 38 decision. Meanwhile, Cardston Cougars could only manage six points in the second half but they were enough to in- sure a 45 37 win over Ray- mond Comets in the senior battle. Hal Sloane led the way for the Wildcats in their win over the Mustangs with 17 points. Brian Hicken paced Raymond with 14. Walter Armswprthy hooped 12 points for the Cougars as they took a solid 39 25 half time lead. Robert Heggie was the best for the. Comets with 10. the proposed changes isn't as simple as it seems. "For instance, there is some body of support for un- limited blocking on kick says Greg Fulton, CFL secretary-treasurer. "But in the CFL there is one punt-return situation every eight plays compared with one every 21 plays in the National league. "There is some concern that punt-return blocking would raise the incidence of clipping and the possibility of injury drastically: Therefore, it might be thought adviseable to cut down the frequency of punt returns and that might bring about the fair catch or four downs instead of three." Most of the proposed changes, however, aren't that drastic, dealing mostly with clarification of language already in the rule book. LETHBRIDGE OFFICE FURNITURE LTD. Low.r Ltvtl 7th Slrwt Shopping Mill L.thbrldg., Albtrli Phone (403) 328-7411 HOME AND OFFICE SAFES Don Wilson's death appears accidental HOUSTON (AP) A police investigator says he believes the deaths of Houston Astros' pitcher Don Wilson, 29, and his five year old son, Alexander, were accidental. Joseph Jachrniczyk, Harris County medical examiner, ruled Monday that they died of carbon monoxide poison- ing when the gas filled their home Sunday. Wilson's nine-year-old daughter, Denisc, and his widow. Bernice, 27, were in hospital. Denise remained in critical condition and Mrs. Wilson was listed in fair condition. "i don't see how it, could have been anything said homicide detective Jim Pierce in expressing his opinion the deaths were accidental. There were no signs of violence at the Wilson home. Police said Wilson had .167 alcoholic content in his blood. The legal percentage to determine drunkenness is .100. Wilson, who pitched two no-hitters during his nine seasons with the Astros, was found in his car inside his garage. Alexander was found in a room above the garage. Pierce said the car appeared to have been running lor about five hours after Wilson apparently came home some time after midnight Saturday night. They said the ignition was on but the gasoline gauge registered empty. Police said both the garage door and the door from the garage to the house were closed. Exhaust fumes leading into the house would tend to rise to the second floor where Mrs. Wilson, her son and her daughter were sleeping, Pierce said. A hospital spokesman said Monday Mrs. Wilson did not suffer a broken jaw as the hospital had originally reported. They said the jaw was bruised and swollen. Police said the sequence of events still was not clear and that Mrs. Wilson was unable to give investigators a complete account of the incident.
