Well, if you have, and you really want to find out, you can do so between now and the end of the Canada Winter Games with a minimum of effort and absolutely no cost. Dan Slee and Guy Nadoii; representatives of the federal government's Health and Welfare division, will be in Southern Alberta until Feb. 24, assessing the physical fitness of residents of this area from ages seven on up. "We are stressing a new adult assessment program in this Slee stated, "but we wish to make it very clear that we are just looking for a general indication of fitness. We are not set up to provide facilities for the individual to improve his state of fitness. "If a person goes through our program and then wants to i upgrade his level of fitness we refer him to the YMCA in his own community. They are equipped to bring his fitness level up through proper programs." The two men will be located in the College Mall in Lethbridge tonight Friday and Saturday and move to Pincher Creek from the 15 to 18. They will be in Taber from the 22-24 and in Claresholm from the 28-31. During the Canada Winter Games they will be located in Lethbridge at the Exhibition Pavilion. The display in Lethbridge for the Games will be a full scale fitness testing facility, including actual sporting events, such as running, standing broad jump and flexed arm bends. There will be pitching machines, complete with curves and fast ball, as well as accuracy tests for golfers, soccer players and par- ticipants in football.

"These facilities will be open to all who want to make use of Nadon stated. "The facilities are free to everyone. "After a person has used-the facilities and followed the program we can then assess his physical fitness. This is done according to age brackets." Youths completing the program, in the 7-17 age group will receive bronze, silver, or gold crests depending upon their proficiency. All participants will receive a badge signifying they completed the program. An adult taking the tests will be judged according to his age bracket. A 40 year old will be graded according to the results compiled by other 40 year olds following the same program. The idea of the tests is to make the public aware of physical fitness and to enable the individual to evaluate what his physical standing is in regards to others his own age. The program is set up in conjunction with the YMCA in the participants home town. By finding one's level of fitness, the person can then go to the Y and start a program to bring that level up to standard. The tests check out the entire.cardio-respiratory system. During the Winter Games 30 students from this area will assist in the operation of the program and numerous informa- tion and graphic displays will be located throughout the testing area. Tiny tots will even have an opportunity to have some fun in the adventure playground which will be stocked with rubber mats, balls, wheels and a whale for the children to crawl through. The program could prove to be a lot of fun as well as being beneficial to those taking part. I'VE CALLEO A80UT) >-THAT VACANCY FOR A BARMAIP I'M OUT, ANDY WDULD YOU INTERVIEW OW SOON CAN YOU START AN1 WHATAREVOUDOIN TONIGHT Leading NHL teams supply most players MONTREAL (CP) The four teams with the most points in the Prince of Wales Conference will supply the first players to represent the conference in the National Hockey League's 28th annual all star game at Montreal Jan. 21. Boston Bruins, second in the Charles F. Adams Division, had four players selected in a poll of members of the Professional Hockey Writers' Association in the nine con- ference cities. Buffalo Sabres, leaders of the Adams Division, had their top line, the French Connec- tion, selected. Montreal Canadiens, leaders of the James Norris Division, also had three players named to the starting 12, while second place Los Angeles Kings of the Norris Division had two players nominated. There were two unanimous selections goaltender Roga- tien Vachon of the Kings and defenceman Bobby Orr of Boston. Selection for the all star game is separate from the selection of the league's official all star teams chosen at the end of the season. The other Bruins named were defenceman Carol Vad- nais, centre Phil Esposito and left winger John Bucyk. Buf- falo's line of centre Gilbert Perreault, right winger Rene Robert and left winger Rick Martin was joined by Montreal right winger Guy Lafleur. In addition to Orr and Vad- nais. the other defencemen picked were Guy Lapointe of Montreal and Terry Harper of Los Angeles. Ken Dryden of 'the Canadiens was the other goaltender. Voting was based on five n j points for a first place KaymOIlCl choice, three for a second and one for a third. Following are ii results for the 12 players selected with their brackets: he guided Boston to the East Division title last season. Guidolin now is coach of Kansas City Scouts. When he selects the eight additional players, each of the nine clubs in the conference must be represented. Lefleur is the only one of the' 12 players chosen by the hockey writers who will be making his debut in the all star game. Toronto Maple Leafs finally broke their long drought against Vancouver with help of some scrappy play and some defensive lapses by the Canucks. The 6-4 victory Wednesday night was the .first for the Leafs in nine National Hockey League meetings witli the Canucks. "The Leafs skated said former Leaf Garry Mona- han of the Canucks. "But T don't think it was as much a case of their own aggression as our own sloppy, loose play which led to their win." In other games, Montreal Canadiens tied Detroit Red Wings 4-4, Los Angeles Kings defeated Minnesota North Stars 4-2, Chicago Black Hawks beat Pittsburgh Penguins 7-5, Atlanta Flames edged California Seals 3-2, and New York Rangers beat Kan- sas City Scouts 6-1. .Leafs' coach Red Kelly was happy with the win. "We've got three wins in four games and it was a tough schedule with four games in five said Kelly. "The players wanted the win badly. We set our goals to win three out of four games. It's been a really successful five days for us." -33 Pronghorns hosting Bears this weekend The University of Lethbridge Pronghorns host perennial rival University of Alberta Golden Bears for a pair of Canada West University Athletic Association basketball contests this weekend at the U of L gym- nasium. The Pronghorns will be out to prove that they are better than their 2-6 Canada West record would indicate. Four of their losses have come by a total of 11 points, with their latest tough one being a 57 56 loss at the hands of league leading Victoria Vikings last weekend. Meanwhile, the Bears are challenging for the conference title. They sport a 4 2 record, two games back Of Victoria with a pair of contests in hand. Leading their club are center Doug Baker and forward Steve Panteluk and, of interest to Southern Alberta fans is the pres- cent of Dan Court in the lineup. Court played guard for the Pronghorns last season, and is expected to be assigned to cover the Pronghorns' scoring leader Richard Foggo. Foggo is presently leading the Canada West circuit in scoring with a 20.1 average, but he may be somewhat below par this weekend as he is recovering from an ankle injury which forced him to sit out last Saturday's game with Victoria. In women's action. Jack Lilja's Pronghorns will also be out to improve upon a 2 6 record against U of A Pandas. The clubs have not met in regular season play yet, although the Edmonton club edged the Pronghorns out in Canada Winter Games provincial playoffs.

Esposito had 14 first place votes compared with 12 for Perreaull in the closest race for top honors.- The 12 players will be augmented by another eight to be selected by coach Bep Guidolin, who earned the right to coach the Prince of Wales Conference this year because Raymond Comets took the measure of the Catholic Central Cougars Wednesday night in Southern Alberta 4A high school basketball action. The Comets, who led 23-16 at half time, came out on the long end of a 37-33 score. Mark Williams was the big gnn for the winners .with 16 points. Warren McEwcn was top man for the Cougars with nine.
