TYPEWRITERS Two Canadian gals break Americanos weekend monopoly West Castle provides tough test for Can-Am 3y PAT SULLIVAN Herald Sports Editor WEST CASTLE - A strong showing by tlie United States team failed to overshadow the performance of two Canadian gals over the weekend at the Can-Am races staged at West Castle. The two-day event was held at the ski resort 90 miles west of Lethbridge into Canada's Rockies. West Castle is the only Alberta stop for the Can-Am series this year.

(CP) - Indian Jack Jacobs, 53, onetime Canadian Football League star, died here Saturday after suffering his fifth heart attack. The often flamboyant six-footer led Winnipeg Blue Bombers as quarterback in the early 1950s, and later served with the coaching staffs of Hamilton Tiger-Cats and Edmonton Eskimos. He was an early choice for the CFL Hall of Fame and set a number of durable passing records. "He was the most competitive football player I have ever known," said Bud Tinsley, a member of the Bomber team while Jacobs was in the slot. "He put his heart and soul into the game, and expected his team members to do the same." Jacobs is survived by his wife, Patricia, a Winnipeg native, and three children. The native of Muskogee, Okla., left Green Bay Packers of the National Football League in 1950 to join the Bombers as quarterback.

Notice of Annual General Meeting Lethbridge Tennis Club FOR ELECTION OF OFFICERS January 21, 1974, 8 p.iii. Room 1, Civic Centre It was in the giant slalom Saturday that the Canadian gals, Ruth Neidermeyer of Vancouver and Joan Wilson or Calgary, in particular, had their finest hour. Neidermeyer came from nowhere to delight the gathering of 300 Saturday to win the, giant slalom with a time of' one minute, 3.96 seconds to finish ahead of Wilson who finished at one minute, 6.05 seconds. Four American gals, Pam Noyes, Becky Dorsey, Jamie Kurlander and Lyndall Heyer captured the next four places to begin the strong American showing. Miss Noyes, of Ipswatch, Mont, was third with a time 1:06.43. Fourth was Miss Dorsey of Beverley, Mass. Her time was 1:07.38 well ahaead of McAffee, New Jersey's Kurlander with a time of 1:08.08. Miss Heyer, who makes her home in Stowe, Vermont was clocked in 1:08.44. The American team, who fell behind the Canadian contingent after Girabaldi, began their domination of the West Castle competition right after Neidermeyer and Wilson were finished. In Saturday's men's giant slalom the U.S. representatives ran first and second as Richard Woodworth of Peabody, Mass. finished with Football fans in Winnipeg remember "Indian" - so-named because he was a member of the Oklahoma Creek tribe - as an often-volatile sparkplug who thought nothing of screaming his opinions at the top of his lungs on the field. He was a gambler, and loved to pass, even inches away from the goalline. He took the Blue Bombers into the Grey Cup twice, but failed to capture the trophy. One was the celebrated "mud bowl" in 1950 against Toronto Argonauts, and the other in 1953 against the Ti-Cats.

The visiting Mountaineers were outshot 44-19 in the 60-minute encounter but obviously made their shots count.

Canadians took the next four places but their enjoyment ended Sunday as MeNealus and Missie Taylor of Orchard Park, New York led the U.S. skiers. MeNealus, who now leads the men's indiviual Can-Am point race, won the men's slalom with a convincing time of 1:15.69. Mark Ford of Bend. Ore. was second for the U.S. finishing the run at 1:18.51 a shade ahead of teammate Billy Shaw. Shaw, of Sun Valley Idaho clocked 1:18.63.

Miss Kurlander, fifth in the giant slalom, was second in the slalom followed by Miss Dorsey. Maggie Crane of Plymouth, New Hampshire, was fourth. Canadian skiers earned the fourth to eight paces in the men's slalom while their best showing in women's slalom was fifth by Susan Aslett of Toronto. Perhaps the most important finish by a Canadian gal was Pat Gordon's eighth place finish in the slalom Sunday. The young Banff skier was the last of 39 starters to leave the starting gate but finished very strongly possibly an indication of better things to come. West Castle, which will be the site of the ski competition at Canada's Winter Games in 1975, took its toll on the weekend competitors. Sunday only 16 of the 39 gals who started finished while Saturday it wais the men who took it on the chin as only 26 of 67 were on their skiis at the finish. West Castle, for the giant slalom showed a vertical drop of 1,300' that became nearly 2,000 for Sunday's slalom. Miss Taylor, who was in the winner's circle after the women's slalom, voiced what appeared to be the general opinion of most competitors when she said that West Castle was tough. Soft snow greeted Saturday's skiers. These conditions concealed an icy base and it showed in the final results of non-finishers. Sunday wet snow made the run almost like wet cement in places. However Mike Shandrick, a Can-Am official from Denver, Colo., said that the inexperience of most of the skiers would lend itself to the fin-' dings of the course tough. As Shandrick pointed out the youngsters are aggressive but have not yet had a taste of the variety of hills they will encounter on the Can-Am circuit. For the gals it was off to Whiteflsh Mont, for the next series of races while the men head for Ogden, Utah. WOMEN'S GIANT SLALOM 1. Ruth Neidermeyer, Vancouver, 1,43.96 2.
