Lethbridge Herald (Newspaper) - January 8, 1971, Lethbridge, Alberta 8 - THE LFTHBRIDGE HERALD - Friday, January 8, 19" TVEXT QUESTION of considerable Interest to fish and gamers and conservationists throughout the province: who is going to be the next director of fish and wildlife for Alberta? Dr. Smith came to Edmonton in 1966, as director of fish and wildlife for the province, from British Columbia, where he was chief fisheries biologist. In December, along with Paul Babey, former president of Unifarm, Dr. Smith was named to be one of the three members of the Alberta Environment Conservation Authority. Haven't heard what's next, except that his job is up for grabs, ? ? ? LETUBKIDGEITE FARMER Paul Wesley of B22 22nd St. S., is one of the current leaders in the annual Fort Pierce Fishing Tournament at Fort Pierce, Florida. His entry is a red snapper weighing 22 pounds. The tournament runs each year from Dec. 15 to April 35, and it will be after the latter date when Paul finds out exactly how successful he was. ? * * THE LETHBRIDGE FISH AND GAME ASSOCIATION starts its fly-tying course in the clubrooms on 9th Ave. S., this Sunday at 2 p.m. The course is free and open to anyone. Kits will be available for beginners. It will continue each Sunday at 2 p.m., and wind up with fly casting instructions when Henderson Lake opens in the spring. Publicity chairman Terry Psaltis also says the local association has set Saturday, Feb. 13, as trophy day. It will be held1 in the Park Plaza Motor Hotel. Measuring of trophies will start at 8 a m. Deadline for trophy entries is 1 p.m. The viewing of trophy displays will be open to the public throughout the afternoon. At 8 p.m., there will be dancing and entertainment, with a membership in the association serving as the entry fee. The trophy awards for big game, birds and fish will be made at 9 p.m. And, while on the topic of trophy days, don't forget the big Willow Valley Trophy Club annual awards day is this Saturday in the Livingston School at Lundbreck. Trophy entry deadline is 11 a.m. Displays open at l p.m. ? * ? NOT SURE WHAT the snowfall will do to the rainbows in Tyrrell's Lake, but up to a few days ago the trout were very active. They are partial to worms, but if you haven't a worm box at home, they'll take marshmallows, corn, maggots and Don Pilling's specialty, chocolate coated raisins. ? * * WITHOUT TRYING to be an alarmist, it would appear that we may be facing a serious rabies outbreak. Rural people are more apt to come in contact with rabid animals than city people. It should be remembered that rabies in humans is fatal once it reaches an advanced stage. Dogs should be vaccinated against rabies without hesitation because of the situation at present. Be very suspicious of wild animals that appear to have lost their fear of humans. In the early stages of rabies, wild animals will approach humans and other animals which are their traditional enemies; this in fact is how the disease is spread. Children should be warned not to pet strange, wild or domestic animals. Be wary of doctoring domestic animals which appear to have a throat obstruction. Babies has now been diagnosed in dogs, coyotes, a pig, a bull, cow and a heifer. If deep snow develops in the countryside, and food becomes scarce, or harder to get, animals like coyotes, fox and skunks are apt to move in closer to habitation and rummage for whatever may be around. This doesn't necessarily mean they are rabid, but there is need for adequate knowledge. ? ? ? AND, THE COALDALE Fish and Game Association is sponsoring a predator bunt Sunday. It should be noted, those handling even dead animals should be careful. No starting point. Report to the Coaldale firehall by 5 p.m. for a Chili supper. Trophy for most points. Fox worth 200, coyote 150, skunk 50, magpie 10. Suspected cases of rabies should be reported to veterinarians, fish and wildlife officers, or your health unit. Animals suspected of having rabies should not be shot in the head. This can cause splattering of the virus and also hampers diagnosis by vets. Pontiac Cup on at Feniie Blues land three, Penguins one on All-Stars Eight Black Hawks named to team MONTREAL (CP)-The dominance of Chicago Black Hawks in the West Division of the National Hockey League this season was emphasized today in the results of the voting for 12 berths on the division's team for the 24th annual NHL All-Star game Jan. 19 at Boston. The Hawks, who currently hold a 10-point lead over second-place St. Louis Blues in Chicago's first season as a West Division entrant, placed eight players on the team. This is the most members a team has ever had voted into an all-star game.

Brown, who captured American Football League coaching honors in 1969, won the NFL award with a 2-to-l margin over runner-up Don Shula of Miami Dolphins in the balloting, which for the first time encompassed all of major league pro football. He received 39 of the 78 votes Minor hockev A.C.T. moved into first place in the midget division of the Lethbridge Minor Hockey League by stopping the Royals 5-2. _ Joe Meli led the winners witn two goals.

Lead shared by threesome LOS ANGELES (AP) - Billy Casper had a share of the lead. Arnold Palmer had a mental lapse and three players had yet to finish in the first round of the $110,000 Glen Campbell-Los Angeles open golf tournament. Casper, battling a heavy cold and hand-numbing chill, fired a five-under-par 66 Thursday and tied a pair of 28-year-olds-Tom Shaw and Bob Smith-for top spot in the opening round of the first tournament on the 63-stop pro tour this year. The start of play was delayed for about 30 minutes to allow frozen greens to thaw and early darkness caught Bill Brask, Bobby Greenwood and Jack Montgomery still out on the Rancho Park Golf Club course. They were scheduled to play their 18th hole before the start of the second round. Palmer had a shot at it, until he took a three-over par seven, including a two-stroke penalty on the fifth hole, his 14th. He pulled his drive into the left rough near a tree with the ball resting against a beer can. Palmer moved the can and the ball moved slightly. He played the ball, hitting a (hree-iron into some trees and the ball richoch-teing back to the fairway. Peter Wenzel's third period marker. Duane Lendrum had put the Nuggets ahead after the first period of play but Bobbie Mel-vin gave the Hornets new life with his second period goal.

Shula, who directed the Dolphins to a playoff berth in their fifth season, picked up 19 votes. San Francisco's Dick Nolan finished third with nine. Brown's Bengals beat out his former club, Cleveland Browns, for the American Football Conference's Central Division title by winning their last seven regular season games. The 1968 expansion club did it with Brown calling all the offensive plays from the sideline, as he has done throughout a pro coaching career that began 35 years ago in the old All-American Conference. After an opening game upset victory over Oakland Raiders, Brown's youngsters lost six in a row and were counted out of the AFC Central race. But they weren't beaten again until the post-season playoffs, when Baltimore's AFC champs blanked them 17-0. High point for Brown during the hot streak was a 14-10 victory over the Browns, who fired him in 1962 rfter his 17th season with them. Meanwhile i n Philadelphia Jerry Williams, coach of the year in the Canadian Football League in 1967 who jumped his contract with Calgary Stamped-ers to go to the Philadelphia Eagles, has been granted a reprieve by the National League club. Owner Leonard Tose, after several weeks of deliberation, told a news conference Thursday he would retain Williams to complete the final year of his three-year contract. Tose said previously that if he could find a professional coach with a winning background, Williams would not be back. "If we don't come up with anybody, Williams will be back," he said at the time. The Eagles were 4-9-1 in Williams' first season, but Tose said he viewed that as a year of organization. "I expected more this year," he said. Williams* record this year was 3-10-1. When Williams was hired away from Calgary there was bitterness expressed on both sides. Williams had been denied permission by the Stamps to talk with Philadelphia but the coach -who is also a lawyer-said he was exercising rights he believed he had in his contract with Calgary. At the time of his signing with Philadelphia, Eagles' general manager Pete Retzlaff said: "Williams has been consistently associated with winning. He ha^ been a winner in 14 of his 17 years in professional football as a coach and player. He is generally recognized as one of the most imaginative coaches in the game." vision members of the NHL Writers' Association, had eight players in the 1969 all-star game, but only four were named in the voting, the other four being added by St. Louis coach Scotty Bowman that season. The only unanimous choice in Hhj voting, which was based on the system of five points for a first-place choice, three for a second and one for a third, was Bobby Hull, Chicago's great left winger. Hull polled 21 first-place votes for 105 points. Right winger Ken Schinkel of Pittsburgh Penguins was the only player to break the Chicago-St. Louis monopoly. The team, with point-totals in brackets: Goal-Tony Esposito, Chicago (87); Ernie Wakely, St. Louis (27). Defence-Keith Magnuson, Chicago (73); Pat Stapleton, Chicago (59); Bill White, Chicago (47); Barclay Plager, St. Louis (38). Centre-Stan Mikita, Chicago (75); Pit Martin, Chicago (40). Right wing-Ken Schinkel, Pittsburgh (70); Tim Ecclestone, St. Louis (32). Left wing -B o b b y Hull, Chicago (105); Dennis Hull, Chicago (39). Bowman was coach of St. Louis in the Stanley Cup final last spring in which Boston defeated the Blues in four straight games. He will name the other eight players to round out the West Division team which will face the East Division all-stars, coached by Harry Sinden, who was Boston's coach last season, It will be Bowman's third straight appearance as coach of the West Division club. Four of the players named- Wakely, Magnuson, Martin and Ecclestone-will be appearing in their first all-star game. Bobby Hull is the veteran of the 12 players chosen, having been in nine previous all-star games, BROTHERS MAKE IT The selection of the Hull brothers at left wing and goalie Tony Esposito means that there will be two brother combinations in this year's game. Centre Phil Esposito of Boston was a unanimous choice in the East Division voting announced earlier. The only position in which Chicago did not have a player named was right wing. Schinkel, who played in two previous games as a Pittsburgh representative, led the voting for the right wing position, but he will be unable to play because he underwent surgery earlier this week for a broken collar bone, suffered in a game at Montreal against the Cana-diens, Dec. 30. He is not expected to be back in the lineup for at least eight weeks. Bowman will name another player to take Schinkel's place. The poll was taken to name 12 players from the West Division for the all-star game only. It is not connected in any way with the balloting at the end of the season for the official first and second all-star teams for the 1970-71 season.

BOWER WILL ATTEND - It was announced today that Johnny Bower, a 13-year veteran of the National Hockey League will be a guest of the Lethbridge Kinsmen Club at their annual sportsman's dinner. Johnny Bower will be here The Kinsmen Club of Lethbridge today announced that Johnny Bower will be a head table guest for the 18th annual Sportsman's Dinner set for the Exhibition Pavilion, Feb. 6. Bower spent 13 years with the Toronto Maple Leafs of the National Hockey League before retiring this year to become a talent scout for the Leafs as well as a coach for Toronto netminders. Bower joins Sugar Ray Robinson, Rusty Staub, Tom Gorman, and master of ceremonies Ernie Afaganis at the head table for the 1971 dinner. A truly remarkable man best describes Bower. He spent 12 years in the minor professional ranks of hockey before reaching star status with the Leafs at an age no one has been able to pinpoint. Punch Imlach, Bower's form- er coach at Toronto, says that Bower was the best goaltender if not the most outstanding player ever. His quick reflexes and excellent glove hand contributed greatly to his success over the years. His age has always been a question mark and the quickwitted Bower will only say he is 42 going on 49. He entered hockey in 1945 and has long outlasted his generation of skaters. The Kinsmen Club is proud to have Bower as their guest for the upcoming dinner. Tickets, set at $20, can be obtained from any club member or purchased at Beyer's or Marcell's cigar stores. A dinner ticket entitles the holder to chances on a trip to Vancouver for an NHL game or a $50 table lighter. The Rams own a 2-1 record and will fall back with a loss. On the other band the Cougars have a chance to catch the Rams with a victory and improve their present 1-2 standing. The Ram-Cougar contest is slated for 8 p.m. with a preliminary "B" Boys game on tap for 6:30. Both games will be at Catholic Central High School. In last nights Magrath-Card-ston encounter the Zeniths maintained a slim 31-27 lead at half time but watched the Cougars take over the lead by two points with two minutes and thirty seconds remaining. The Zeniths then came alive once again and pumped in four straight baskets to take the win. Craig Leishman was the top Zeniths marksman hooping 15 points while Don Hamilton and Bruce Ririe chipped with 13 each. For the Cougars Doug Fox and Dave Bengry dunked 20 and 11 points respectively. In the "B" Boys contest the Magrath Zeniths made i t a sweep for the host school as they dumped the Wildcats 63-43. Bob Rice led the Eagles with 15 points while Neil Miller aided Die cause with 12. Beck was tops for the Wildcats managing 15 points ELRICH TIRE SPORT SCORES NATIONAL LEAGUE East Division w L T 28 . 26 . .. 18 12 e ... 18 19 2 ... . 14 j3 : ... . 12 22 4 ... . 8 3 t Wtit Division Boston ...
