I don't suppose anything about the Western Canada Hockey League should surprise me any more but once again it happened. When they say that the WCHL All Star game is being staged in Victoria they mean just that. A totally surprising turnout of people from all twelve teams sat in on Mon- day's banquet. Quickly counting legs and there were some rather shapely ones as women's lib was not to be outdone and dividing by two there were 700 plus in attendance at the ban- quet held in the rustic Empress Hotel. The All Star game itself will be staged this evening and five Lethbridge Broncos will be in the line up. Set to wear the colors of the Eastern Divi- sion team are forwards Bryan Trottier, Brian Sutler, Alec Tidey, and Ron Delorme as well as defenceman Doug Gillesp'ie. Broncos placed the most players on Jackie McLeod's East squad while Victoria Cougars, co hosts of the game along with the WCHL, also placed five players on the team. When one talks of represen- tation the fact that almost every National League and World Association club are be- ing represented at the affair cannot be overlooked. Head table guests Monday included the president of the WCHL, Ed Chynoweth, political dignitaries and the general managers of each club. Walter (Babe) Pratt and Red Storey combined to enter- lain the gathering but the night really belonged to the fellows, many of whom were standouts for Team Canada in the recent World Junior Championships held in Win- nipeg. Chynoweth, in what he described as a move directed at job security welcomed" the people on behalf of the greatest junior hockey leaane in the world. He also promised that the Memorial Cup would be back in Ihe West again this year. After a series of presen- tations and the introduction of the Uvo All Star teams, Pratt lead off the entertainment part of the evening and then' sat back as Storey cleaned up. Pratt, best known as a jokester first and then a keen judge of hockey talent, is the goodwill ambassador of the Vancouver Canucks. He will need to spread the goodwill he says now that the Canucks have lost seven in a row. Pratt's jokes would make for excellent dressing room entertainment, but in a family journal they have no place. However, Pratt is a proud man with a great deal of hockey heritage. He can't stand to see abuse. "There is nothing wrong with our he says. "We have the greatest 23 and 24 year old players in the world." Trottier 10 behind Cougar's Bridgman SASKAluON (CP) Don Ashby is the forgotten man in the Western Canada Hockey League Scoring race. Ashby plays for Calgary Centennials, mired in sixth place in the leagues' Western Division. However, following another productive week, he finds himself tied for sixth in the scoring race with 68 points including 30 goals. Victoria Cougar centre Mel Bridgman continued to lead in points with 93 while Bryan Trottier of Lethbridge Bron- cos had a six-point game dur- ing the last week to lift his point total to 83. Bill Oleschuk of Saskatoon Blades maintained his lead among the goaltenders, lower- ing his goals against average to 3.36 from 3.40 dur- ing two games last week. Mark Earp of Kamloops Chiefs and Bob Leslie of Vic- toria were deadlocked behind Oleschuk 3.55 goals against averages. Oleschuk, Earp, Ed Staniowski of Regina Pats and Jerry Farwell of Medicine Hat were tied in the shutouts with two apiece. Staniowski made the most saves with an even Jerry Rollins of Winnipeg Clubs became the first player to pass the 300 minute mark in penalties with 324 minutes.

They have the worst goals against average in the league, allowing 52. Following are the team He makes no bones about it when he'says that it makes him sick when people keep referring to the outstanding 23 year old Russian, or Czech or Finn. "Let us put together the team of 24 year olds and un- der. How would you like Bunny Laroche or John Davidson in goal." asks Pratt. "And then for luck we will throw in Gilbert Perrault, Tom Lysiak, Richard Martin, Marcel and Guy Lefleur just to mention a few." There is not a darn Ihing wrong with our hockey, just ask Pratl. Pratt would like to see the age limit in all divisions of hockey raised one year. He is confident it will happen and the sooner the better as far as he is concerned. As for his old nemisis Red Storey? The red head is just fine. He seemed to pick up where he left off in Lethbridge. You might say he tells Storey after Storey after Slorey. By his own admission Ihe greatest referee in the history of the NHL, Storey admits his life has been a great one because of his involvement in sports. Had he .Ihe chance he would turn back the hands of lime and would do very little that was different than the first time around. "These are tough times on young admits Storey. "Think back to your youth when pot was a thing at the side of the bed and grass was what had to be cut before you could play baseball." "No, we had it pretty good." added Storey in closing. "But jusl remember above all else lo be a winner you must first be a loser."

NEW WESTMINSTER, B.C. (CP) Norman John- son, coach of Ihe Brandon Wheat Kings of the Western Canada Hockey League, was charged Monday with com- mon assault after a brawl erupted between fans and players Sunday during a game between the Wheat Kings and New Westminster Bruins. Roger Dale Botvin, 27, a Co- quitlam, B.C., contractor, laid the charge after .being struck in the face by a hockey stick. He suffered multiple bruises to his head. The brawl broke out during the third period and delayed the game 20 minutes. Two New Westminster police of- ficers attempting to quell the disturbance were also injured, but they are not expected to lay charges, a police spokesman said Monday. Constable Art Spring receiv- ed facial cuts and bruises while Constable Jack Fordham suffered arm and hand cuts. Morley Kalnitsky, New Westminster crown prosecutor, said there may be some difficulty serving the charge on Johnson because Ihe Wheat Kings are not scheduled to play in B.C. again this season. By GARRY ALLISON Herald Sports Writer On Saturday, January 18, at Ihe Lethbridge Collegiate Institute, the Alberta eliminations to determine the representatives in boxing for this province at the Canada Winter Games will be held. One of the men vitally concerned with that box-off is the trainer of the Lethbridge Boxing Club, Tony Bogusky. Tony has been active in box- ing circles, both as a trainer and as a boxer for nearly 36 years. Born in Drumheiler, but raised in Lethbridge, Tony laced on his first boxing gloves in 1939 and went on to box over 90 bouts in a career that spanned the amateur, military service and professional ranks. In his first year of ring ac- tivity Tony captured the Alberta 127 pound novice championship. "The nexl year the Cana- dian boxing finals were held in Tony said. "I qualified for the cham- pionships by winning the Alberta title and I went on to win the Canadian 126 pound novice championship. It was a great thrill to win thai lille so near home." By 1943 Tony was enlisted in the Canadian army and found himself battling for the West Coast Internalional Service lightweight championship. He won. "One of the" great fighters of all-time, Jimmy McLarnin, refereed lhat fight. He came into the dressing room after Ihe fight and talked with me. He pointed oul whal I was do- ing wrong_and told me how to improve certain aspects of my attack." At Ihe conclusion of Ihe war Tony lurned professional, and Ihough he only fought 10 pro bouts before retiring in 1946, he was the leading contender for the Western Canadian featherweight and lightweight titles. Today, as a trainer, and as an ex-boxer, Tony has nothing but praise for boxing as a con- ditioner for young boys. "Boxing improves co- ordination. The skills and con- dilioning one derives from boxing aid a youngster in all olher sporls. Boxing is so safely conscious loday lhat it has become one of the safest contacl sporls Tony said. "There are more hurt in hockey, for instance, than boxing. It is a lot easier to de- fend yourself against one boy in the ring, than againsl five olher boys on the ice." Throughout his tenure as a Irainer. Tony has aided many prominent amateur boxers. Canadian champions, and internalional fighters, Kai Yip and Carmen Rinke were tutered by Tony as were Alberta champions Eddie LeBaron, Conrad Sincennes, Gordie Brown and Del Danielson, to name just a few. "I am looking forward to some of Ihe boys in Ihe Lelhbridge club winning Ihe righl to represent Alberta Saturday at the box-off. I think the Sincennes boys, Conrad and Norman, have good chances of winning, as does Charley Prongua. Mike O'Brigewitch might surprise a lot of people loo." The Lethbridge club boasts 10 registered members and is under the guidance of presi- dent Lionel Sincennes and vice president Tony O'Brigewitch. Despite its small size, the club has one Alberta cham- pion, Conrad Sincennes, and one former Canadian cham- pion, Carmen Rinke, in its midst. The first thing Tony tries lo develop in a young boxer join- ing the club is his footwork. "That is 50% of the battle. Next I try to teach him balance, and then how lo co- ordinale his foolwork and balance. Skipping and shadow boxing are greal aids here. "Then we teach him the art of self defence, how to throw a punch, how to slip, parry and duck. We try to show the boy how to manouvre himself out of, and inlo, punching range. "If we can develop a good defence in a boy he will have a good offence because he will always be in posilion lo punch. "A boy will nol be placed in Ihe ring for his firsl boul unlil he is ready, and then only with a boy of the same ex- perience." Tony feels thai boxing js a greal character builder. "If a young boy can learn lo defend himself he develops poise and confidence." The upcoming Canada Winter Games, which will feature boxing at Claresholm and Lethbridge between Feb. 18 and 22, is a great benefit to the area Tony says. "The Games provide a means of upgrading both par- licipanls and officials. It is a good opportunity for a youngster lo find oul whal he can do againsl national com- petilion and lo assess the depth of thai compelilion. The Games will also provide a great amount of much- needed equipment for this area." While Tony is deeply interested in the Games his prime concern at the moment is the impending Alberta eliminations. The eliminalions are restricted to boys wilh not less lhan 10 bouls and boys who have had national or international boxing ex- perience are ineligible. The weigh-in will be set from 8-10 a.m. Saturday morning with the first bout set to go at 7 p.m. al the LCI gym. If there is a need for preliminary bouls, where Ihree or more boys are entered in one weight class, they will be run off slarting at 1 p.m. Boxers will be divided into three classes; junior, 14-15 years old, weights 105-112 and 119 pounds; intermediate, 16- 19, weights 125, 132, 139, 147, 156 and 165; and seniors 19-35, weighls 178.5 and heavyweighls over 178.5. ELRICH TIRE SPORT SCORES CCHS Cittens capture tournament Catholic Central Cittens traveled to Medicine Hat over the weekend for a basketball tournament and returned to Lethbridge with the cham- pionship.
