Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - January 10, 1975, Lethbridge, Alberta Friday, January 10, 1975 THE LETHBRIDGE HERALD 11 Rangers continue lo close in on leaders Flyers land four on all-star squad THE ASSOCIATED PRESS MONTREAL (CP) Seven of the nine teams in the Clarence Campbell Conference are represented among the first 12 players chosen for that conference's participation in the National Hockey League's 28th annual all-star game at Montreal, Jan. 21. Four players of the first- place Philadelphia Flyers of the Lester Patrick Division were selected in the voting among members of the Professional Hockey Writers' ANDY CAPP Association in the nine conference cities. The four players picked from the defending Stanley Cup champion Flyers were goaltonder Bernie Parent, defenceman Jim Watson, centre Bobby Clarke and left winger Bill Barber. Chicago Black Hawks and New York Rangers each had two players ceman Bill White and right winger Jim Pappin of the Hawks and defenceman Brad Park anil left winger Steve Vickers of the Rangers. Goaltender Gary Smith of Vancouver Canucks, defen- ceman Denis Polvin of New York Islanders, centre Garry linger of St. Louis Blues, and right winger Bill Goldsworthy of Minnesota North Stars represent the other four teams. Fred Shero of the Flyers will coach the Campbell Conference team in the game against Bep Guidolin's Prince of Wales Conference squad. Shero's Flyers won the West Division championship last season before defeating Guidolin's Boston Bruins for the Stanley Cup. Guidolin now coaches Kansas City Scouts. Shero will pick an additional eight players to round out his 20-man team, but likely will have to select replacements for While and Goldssworthy, both injured. Voting, tabulated on the basis of five points for a first- place choice, three for a se- cond and one for a third, produced the following in brackets: Philadelphia Smith, Vancouver New York IT'S ABSOLUTELY R3URIN1 DOWN ANV ME SHOES LET THE WATER IN SO?

Padres select speedy fielder NEW YORK (AP) South Carolina State players, Broo- kens brothers and' right- handed pitchers were in abun- dance when major league baseball drafted free agent talent at its annual winter draft session Thursday. San Diego Padres led off by selecting Gene Richards, a fleet outfielder from South Carolina State, which canned its intercollegiate baseball program last year. Richards, now a senior at the Orangeburg, S.C., school, crashed the .400 barrier in his last two seasons there. His speed impressed the scouts, notably San Diego's Gus Lom- bardo, who watched the 21- year-old outfielder steal 32 bases and rank in the top five in every offensive category except home runs last summer in the amateur Shenandoah Valley League. The 6-foot, 175-pound player signed a contract less than three hours after the Padres called his name. "He signed for an appropriate said Peter Bavasi, vice-president and general manager of the Padres. Bavasi said Richards would go to spring training with the Padres, then be plac- ed with one of four minor league teams. California, selecting second in the primary phase of the draft, pickcd'Richards' team- mate, first baseman Willie Mays Aikens, a name with a lot of baseball history attach- ed to it. The Angels hope the magical name of Willie Mays can rub off on them with Aikens, who batted .360 with 1 year. The 21year-old junior, 6- 3 and 200 pounds, also slugged 17 homers in the Shenandoah Valley League. Other Shenandoah Valley alumni drafted in the first round of the primary phase were Tom and Tim Brookens, twin brothers from Fayetteville, Pa. Tom was selected by Detroit Tigers, while Tim was picked by Texas Rangers. Tom, the shortstop, hit .386 and was second in the league. Tim, an outfielder, hit .309. Pitchers, the right-handed CFL meeting can only narow date to a week WASHINGTON (CP) Football fans, keep the final week of June 1975 Canadian Football League all- star game likely will be played about that time. It was an all-star cast that deliberated for five hours here Thursday, but that was about as close as they could come lo naming the big day. A statement produced after the meeting said only that "matters discussed included the 1975 all-star game." CFL commissioner Jake Gaudaur, however, elaborated to say that it was agreed that the game would not be played later than the last Wednesday in June. Gaudaur chaired the meeting at which Norm Kim- ball of Edmonton Eskimos, John Barrow of Toronto Argonauts and Roy Graves of Calgary Stampeders represented the league. Representing the CFL Play- ers' Association (CFLPA) was the president. George SHOOTERS' The forthcoming challenge shoot between Southern Alberta marks- men and the K.O.C.R. rille team from Calgary scheduled for Feb- ruary 9th is developing a lot of interest. In order lo field a com- petitive and possibly even winning team the regulations allow the Captain, Frank LettingweH, lo draw on rillemen irom the broad Southern Alberta area. Frank intends to solicit help from Taber, Raymond, Warner and Pincher. However, in order to ensure the best and fairest representation, and also provide some preliminary practice he proposes to hold eliminations.

Based on possibles being fired with the Lethbridge Marksman on Thursday nights, the Ktwanis sponsored Junior shooting program might produce some of the Southern Teams members. Tim Hansen, Ted Hansen, Andrew Prokup, Ken Glllchrist, Rosemary Pohn, and Bob Montgomery have recently fired perfect scores from the prone position. A few more Junior shooters between the ages ol 14 and 18 can still be accommodated.

The Flyers' lost 3-1 to New York Islanders on Thursday night, failing to increase their seven-point first-place margin over New York Rangers in the National Hockey League Pat- rick Division. Someone asked Shero if he wasn't just, a little concerned about the Rangers, who have won seven straight and have been biting into a Philadelphia lead that once reached 15 points over New York. "1 only worry about my snapped Shero. "I don't get paid to worry about New York." Meanwhile, Boston Bruins centre Phil Esposito scored three goals to move into a tie with retired Jean Beliyeau in fifth spot on the NHL all-time goal-scoring list.

Namath's price is II million NEW ORLEANS (AP) The price for keeping Joe Naniath in football is million for two the next move is up to Phil Iselin, president of New York Jets. "We have been waiting for Iselin to talk to us, and we haven't heard a Jimmy Walsh, Namath's lawyer and business partner, said-Thursday. "This seeming lack of interest is very strange." In New York, Iselin said: "I have advised Mr. Walsh that I am flying to New Orleans Friday and will talk to him about the Joe Namath contract." Declining to confirm the million figure, which came from a source other than Namath and Walsh, Iselin said: "I hope Namath is our quar- terback next year." Iselin will have to pay dearly to keep No. 12 with the gimpy knees and lightning release in a green and white uniform. "Namath is the hottest property in the entertainment world at the Walsh, a former schoolmate of Namath at the University of Alabama, said. "He is another Clark Gable, with tremendous popular appeal." It was Namath who asked Walsh to advise the Jets that they should draft a quarter- back in the National Football League's big player lottery later this month. Broadway Joe, with 10 years of pro football behind him but at 31 apparently with at least two or three good years ahead, insists he is keeping all his options open. These include, besides a few fading football years, a movie and television career. Walsh said Jim (Catfish) Hunter's recent ?3.7 million baseball contract with New York Yankees and the multi- million-dollar contracts popp- ing up in pro basketball and hockey had put a new com- plexion on pro football negotiations. BRADSHAW CONTEMPLATES SUNDAY'S GAME A ground game essential, you live with pass NEW ORLEANS (AP) A consistent ground game ranks as one of the keys to success in Sunday's National Football League Super Bowl match be- tween Minnesota Vikings and Pittsburgh Steelers. "You have to establish a ground game first and go from says Pittsburgh quarterback Terry Bradshaw, who hopes Franco Harris and Rocky Bleier will keep the Steelers going steadily enough so that he can throw because he wants to, not because he has to. Coach Bud Grant, bringing his Vikings into their third Su- per Bowl and their second in a row, agrees with Bradshaw's assessment. "You can't live by the he said. "You've got to be able to run the ball." Overshadowed by Harris, who gained yards during the regular season, Minnesota's Chuck Foreman is the mainstay of both the rushing and passing attack. The second-year pro gained 777 yards on the ground and, added another 586 yards as the Vikings' leading receiver with 53 catches. He also led the NFL in scoring among non- kickers with 90 points on 15 touchdowns. "I feel that, for us to win, I have to touch the ball 20 said Foreman, who carried only seven times for IB yards a year ago in the 24-7 Super Bowl loss to Miami. "We have to run the ball and we hav.e to gain 150 yards on the ground. If we do, we'll win." Foreman was offensive rookie of the year last season and it was a thrill to make it to the championship then. But he pointed out: "I'm more ex- cited this time than I was a year ago. Last year, I didn't reallv know what it was all about...I didn't have the un- derstanding of what it means to be the world champions. I didn't appreciate the impor- tance of the game. "It's an honor to be Foreman added, "But it's more of an honor to win." The importance of the game is not lost on Harris, either. "It's definitely a different he said. "This is the one we want. All the others were played to get here. Now we've, got to go all the way." For either team to do that, it comes down to which defen- sive line will do its job the best. For Minnesota, it means Carl Eller, Alan Page, Jim Marshall and Doug Sutherland closing Harris' rushing lanes, forcing Bradshaw to go to the air, then storming in on him. For Pittsburgh, it's Mean Joe Greene, L.C. Greenwood, Ernie Holmes and Dwight White (or Steve Furness if White isn't fully recovered from a viral infection) con- taining the wily, dangerous Fran Tarkenton, a 14-year veteran who has passed for at least yards in all but one of those years, and has the league's highest season av- erages in passes, completions, yardage and touchdown passes. "I think the experience said Tarkenton. "I think being able to call on 14 years of experience is an ad- vantage in these types of games." And, of course, there's an added incentive for Fran and .the rest of the Vikings. "We think it's time we won one of these he said. "We sure don't want to be the first team to lose the Super Bowl three times." Bradshaw, who came into his own only late this season, his fifth, has plenty of incen- tive, too, and it's more per- sonal with him. "It all comes down to the he observed.
