This year's dinner, the 18th in  long line of successes, will be No formal application from Canada MONTREAL (CP) - Clarence Campbell, National Hockey League president, said Thursday no Canadian city has made formal application to join the league at its next round of expansion. Campbell was commenting on published reports from New York Wednesday quoting William N. Jennings, chairman of the NHL's finance committee, as saying an application for future league membership from Calgary had arrived "like a bolt out of the blue" at NHL headquarters here. The league president said he had received a query from Edmonton some time ago and he had advised that city of the need for a formal application He outlined the requirements needed in such a formal presentation, but had heard nothing further on the matter. Campbell said he had not received even "an indication of interest" from Calgary. Jennings, president of New York Rangers, mentioned Hempstead, N.Y., Atlanta, Cleveland and Kansas City as prime prospects for further NHL expansion by the 1974-75 season. He said he did not mean to exclude the possibility that another team might be established in a Canadian city. held at the Lethbridge ExhiM tion Pavilion Saturday Feb. 6. The past season in the Canadian Football League was a big one for Lancaster personally The Roughriders were beaten by Calgary Stampeders in the western final and failed in their bid for a second-straight Grey Cup appearance but Lancaster was voted the Most Valuable Player in the CFL an honor that had eluded him on other occasions. Lancaster has been a Rough' rider, or Rough Rider, throughout his football career. He started In the CFL as a backup quarterback to Russ Jackson with the Ottawa Rough Riders but was traded to Saskatchewan where he has blossomed into one of the finest signal-callers in the Canadian game today. In his eight years with Sa� katchewan Lancaster has helped the Roughies develop into a smooth-running football machine with a balanced running and passing attack. The Kinsmen Club feel they have strong addition to the dinner list with the acquisition of Lan caster. Tickets for the dinner are currently on sale at Beyer's and Marcel's as well as from any Kinsmen Club member, Ali opens training MIAMI BEACH (AP) - Muhammad Ali-with flying fists and mouth to match - opened training Thursday for his title fight with Joe Frazier, saying: "I never wanted to whup anybody so bad.

Friday, January IS, Wl - THE LETHBRIDGE HERAID - 9 Goals coming in threes again could shatter at least two more before the season ends.

The United States Federal Water Quality Administration reports that most fish hatcheries in the Pacific Northwest of the U.S. are significant water polluters. The report entitled 'An Evaluation of Salmonoid Hatchery Wastes,' says the 114 hatcheries in the region produce and. discharge organic wastes comparable to the sewage discharge from a city of 270,000. But, in addition to the pollution, these hatcheries also produce millions of trout fingerlings annually. ? * ? SCOUTS HONOR I This is what the report says: Last Nov. 20, the Smithsonian Institution Centre For Short-Lived Phenomena, received a cable from the American embassy in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia reporting a five or six-day frog war which resulted in several casualties. The battleground was a large puddle near a Hindu temple. Observers estimated up to 10,000 frogs of 10 different species in the battle. They speculate that what started out as a frog love-in, turned into a war when toads started getting into the act and their poisonous skin secretions killed some of the frogs. Maybe there is something to that old saying that 'toads'll give you warts.' ? ? ? DAVE SIMPSON of Pincher Creek, chairman of the Southern Alberta Fish and Game Council, has called a meeting of all club representatives in the region for Sunday, Jan. 31, starting at 1:30 p.m. in the Lethbridge Fish and Game clubrooms. One of the items to be discussed is standardization of regulations for the many fish and game derbies and trophy competitions that are held in the region each year. Vulcan's, for example, is this Saturday evening in the Legion Hall. Zone secretary Roger Jensen of Champion also reports the elk trap in the A-7 country has been completed and a tagging program is to be started later this month. Roger says that clubs which have not contributed towards the project so far, may still do so, and are encouraged to do so. The Coaldale Fish and Game Association and the Southern Regional Recreation Board are co-sponsoring a hunter training course for males and females 14 years of age and over. The course will be restricted to the first 20 applicants. One night per week for 10 or 12 weeks. Day of the week has not been set. Registrations by mail or telephone to the recreation office in Coaldale. Phone 345-3746. Entry deadline Jan. 19. ? ? ? WHEN THE REGULAR ARMY sets up a survival training camp in the forest reserve area during the big game season, it's going to be looked upon with considerable suspicion. Even enforcement officers are going to be taking a second or third look. This was the case this fall along AUyson Creek northwest of Coleman. The camp had a support force of some four men. Army personel would visit the camp for intervals and then return to Calgary. It's also been suggested that army vehicles were used to carry home game meat. In this particular instance two members shot a cow moose out of season. They left the meat behind. Despite the fact they were splattered with blood when confronted by officers, they, at least initially, denied having anything to do with the shooting. They ended up in magistrate's court in Pincher Creek where they were convicted and fined $100 each. A protest is to be filed with Western Command. A case somewhat similar to one that occurred near Hinton a number of years ago with an air force survival training camp. In other games, Philadelphia Flyers blanked Toronto Maple Leafs 3-0, Buffalo Sabres upset St. Louis Blues 2-1, Detroit Red Wings and Pittsburgh Penguins skated to a 2-2 tie and Minnesota North Stars and Montreal Summaries BUFFALO 1 ST.

Shaw shares Crosby lead PEBBLE BEACH, Calif. (AP) - Tom Shaw compared himself to Arnold Palmer as he discussed his winless 1970 season on the professional golf tour. "I kept thinking I'd win a tournament, but, just like Arnold, I ran out of tournaments," said the 28-year-old blonde from Oregon after shooting a four-un-der-par 68 Thursday to share the first-round lead with Bobby Nichols and Terry Dill in the $135,000 Bing Crosby National Pro-Am Championship. Palmer, the game's all-tune leading money winner, also went without a tournament victory in 1970. But with $128,000 in prize money, the year was no disaster. Shaw won the Doral Open and Avco Classic in 1969 and totalled $83,332 in winnings. But a reversal in his fairway fortunes last year made him one of the tour's second-class citizens-a non-exempt player. He was 68th on the I money list, with $34,004 in 1970. Canadiens played a 3-3 standoff. At Boston, Esposito's performance broke the previous modem record of four three-goal games in a season set by Maurice (Rocket) Richard of Montreal Canadiens in 1946-47 and later tied by Montreal's Jean Beliveau, Chicago Black Hawks Bobby Hull and Frank Mahovlich while with Detroit. Mahovllch was traded to Montreal Wednesday. Esposito needs only two more three-goal games to tie the all-time record of seven set by Joe Malone in the 44-game, 1917-18 season with the Canadiens. "I had all kinds of chances out there tonight," Esposito said after scoring his 39th, 40th and 41st goals in 42 games, "and for a while I didn't think I'd get that third one. "Some nights they go in and some nights they don't. You just have to keep shooting. Goals come eventually." If he scores nine goals in Boston's next eight games, Esposito could become the only player besides Richard to score SO goals in 50 games. The Rocket rapped in 60 in the 50-game, 1944-45 season. Esposito could also topple Hull's mark of most goals in any MIL season. Hull, with four 50-goal seasons, counted 58 in 1968-69. Esposito's NHL record of 126 points set the same season is threatened. His six-point effort Thursday gives him 84 points, best in the league, with 36 games remaining. Defenceman Bobby Orr gain ered four assists and is now 14 points behind bis team - mate with 70 points. Bruins moved one point ahead of idle New York Rangers who hold down second place in the East Division. Jean Pronovost connected on a third-period penalty shot at Detroit and lifted the Penguins to the tie. Referee Bruce Hood signalled for the penalty shot when Pronovost was pulled down by Bill Collins. Pronovost skated in on goalie Roy Edwards and fired Edwards partially blocked the shot b u t the puck trickled off his pads. Collins, Mickey Redmond and Guy Charron were traded to Detroit by Montreal Wednesday for Mahovllch. WATSON BROKE LEG Pittsburgh's Bryan Watson broke his leg early in the first period when he hit the boards on a missed body check. Detroit has 31 points, one back of fifth place Vancouver Canucks and six ahead of eel lar-dwelling Buffalo in the East At Minneapolis, Frank Ma-hovlich's first goal in a Montreal uniform sparked the Canadiens to a 3-0 lead after 40 min utes. But the North Stars stormed back with three goals in the final period to gain the tie. Montreal's one point moved them four in front of fourth place Toronto in the East while Minnesota kept to within one point of third-place Philadelphia in the West. Juckes to protest OTTAWA (CP) - Gordon Juckes, executive director of the Canadian Amateur Hockey Association, said Thursday he will file a complaint to the International Ice Hockey Federation if a Korean midget hockey team is permitted to compete in a tournament in Trenton, Ont He said the CAHA is standing by its ban on international com petition and therefore the Korean club would not be granted permission to play in a tourna ment in March.

The Globetrotters, now in their 45th year of operation, are, quite naturally, the featured attraction.

In fact, when the current Globetrotter tour is completed, it's estimated that two and a half million people will have Sassed through the gates.
