Lethbridge Herald (Newspaper) - January 16, 1971, Lethbridge, Alberta ___Saturday, January U, 1971 - THI LiTHBRIDGE HERALD -11 Big game set for Miami Sunday Defence must contain Unitas MIAMI (AP) - Johnny Unitas pits hit passing magic against one of pro football's mightiest preventive forces Sunday as Baltimore Colts and Dallas Cowboys square off in the fifth Super Bowl, a potentially- perfect match of contrasting styles and attitudes. The crusading Colts, led by Unitas, take on the rejuvenated Cowboys, spearheaded by a virtually impregnable defence, before an audience that figures to be largest in United States spoils history. A capacity Orange Bowl crowd of 80,000 and another 64 million NBC television viewers are expected to watch the National Football I/eague champl- Glover pleased with line Seals cool off Rangers By IAN MacLAINB Canadian Press Staff Writer If Fred Glover has any reason o smile, and the occasions are ew, it has to be the coup that Drought Dennis Hextall to California Golden Seals. The 28-year-old centre from Winnipeg gave his National Hockey League coach more reason to chuckle Friday night, scoring the winning goal in a 3-1 victory over New York Rangers. The loss, in the only game scheduled, prevented the Rangers from moving into first place in the East Division ahead of Boston Bruins. The Golden Seals, with their 13th victory, continue to occupy the West basement with 29 points, one less than Los Angeles Kings. Tonight Boston visits Montreal Canadiens, Los Angeles go against the Maple Leafs in Toronto, Philadelphia Flyers are in Detroit against the Red Wings, Buffalo Sabres travel to Bloomington for a game against Minnesjta North Stars, Pittsburgh Penguins are at Vancouver Canucks and St. Louis Blues Frazier, Ali bout to 35 million gross French racer stands trial BUENOS AIRES (AP) - A local judge ordered Friday that French race driver Jean-Pierre Beltoise stand trial as a result of the racing death last week of Italian driver Ignazio Giunti. The Frenchman said he has been asked to appear in a local court Monday to give testimony in the case. The decision to try Beltoise, who has' been in Buenos Aires since the Jan. 10 accident during the Argentine 1,000 kilometre sports auto race, was made by Investigations Judge Nestor Sanz after studying evidence in the case. Argetine race authorities announced Thursday night that Beltoise would be barred from racing in the Argentine Grand Prix ou Jan. 24. The 33-year-old Beltoise has been strongly criticized for his role in the accident that killed Giunti. His Matra 660 racer had run out of fuel on a hairpin turn and Giunti's Ferrari plowed into it from the rear. LOS ANGELES (AP) -Sports entrepeneur Jack Kent Cooke-with Muhammad Ali beaming in approval at his side -estimated Friday that Ali's March 8 fight in New York with Joe Frazier for the world heavyweight boxing title will gross in the neighborhood of $35 million. But the Canadian-born promoter hastened to add: "There is a vast difference in the gross and the net." The same applies to the $2.5 million apiece he and Jerry Perenchio, his partner in the worldwide closed-circuit screening of the fight, have guaranteed to Ali and Frazier. He referred primarily to taxes of the fighters' purses. At a news conference, Ali was asked about complaints by Hoy Innes, national director of the Congress of Racial Equality, that no black groups are being given a chance to promote or benefit from proceeds of the closed-circuit screening. "I don't know anything about it," Ali said. "I'm dedicating all my time to this fight and to no other outside interests." WILL REJOIN MU3LIMS Muhammad disclosed he has temporarily disengaged himself from the Black Muslims because, he* said, the religion and fighting don't mix. Once his boxing days are over, he said, he will return to the sect. He was asked to give "an honest" appraisal of Frazier un tainted with buildup ballyhoo. "Joe Frazier is a good, rough fighter, not a boxer," Ali replied. "He's strong, takes a lot of punches and wears his opponents out in the first few rounds."

Montreal moves on to Buffalo Sunday while Toronto is in Boston, New York at Chicago, Minnesota at Detroit, Vancouver in Oakland against the Seals and Los Angeles in Philadelphia. BOUGHT FROM MONTREAL Hextall, a rugged performer who never quite caught on with New York, Los Angeles or Montreal, was purchased outright from the Canadiens last July for an undisclosed amount of cash. In parts of two seasons with New York and Los Angeles he totalled the unimpressive record of six goals and 17 points before winding up as a Montreal Voya geur in a trade that sent Dick Duff to the Kings. Son of former NHL great Bryan Hextall, Dennis appeared destined for minor-pro stardom until Glover plucked him from the Montreal system. The biology graduate of the University of North Dakota was an immediate success with California. The game-winning goal Friday, his 14th of the year, came in the first period and snapped a 1-1 tie, ending Ranger win streak at six games. Goalie Gary Smith whose brilliance enabled the Californi-ans to salvage a 1-1 tie in Toronto Wednesday night, was again instrumental in the Seals' win, turning aside 38 shots. HE'S BETTER Of Hextall's belated rise to the NHL, Glover says "he's a much better stickhandler right now and a better skater." "He knows what his limitations are and he works on them. . . . He's a physical player. It's a natural instinct with him and he knows the way he has to play in order to be effective and he'll use it." Meanwhile, the Red Wings have lost recently-acquired winger Mickey Redmond with a sprained right ankle. Redmond, injured in Detroit's 2-2 tie with Buffalo Thursday, was playing his first game in a Red Wing uniform. He was part of a trade that included Bill Collins and Guy Charron to Detroit from Montreal in exchange for Frank Ma-hovlich. Another injury victim, Bryan Watson, was replaced in the Pittsburgh lineup Friday by Yvon Labre. Watson fractured a leg Thursday and is expected to be out the rest of the season.

The CBC will also televise nationally the game between the American and National conference champions starting at noon. At stake are $15,000 payoffs per-man to the winners and the Vince Lombard! Trophy. MONEY MEANS A LOT "I'd be a liar if I said the money didn't mean a lot in this game," said Dallas tackle Ralph Neely. "It does. But it means a great deal more than that. This is the game. This is as high as you can go m professional football. If we win this, we're the best." The summit clash is the firtt without the overtones of AFL-NFL rivalry. Both finalists are old-line NFL clubs, the Colts having sUlted to the realigned American Conference this past season. The Colts, who beat Oakland Raiders 27-17 two weeks ago for their sixth straight victory and the AFC title, are bent on atoning for their stunning 16-7 loss to New York Jets in the Super Bowl two years ago. The Cowboys feel they already have proven they can win the big games-by winning seven in a row, including a 17-10 verdict over San Francisco '49ers for the NFC pennant, to end a 10-year title famine. Their pre-Super Bowl training camp4 has had a carefree atmosphere. MAYBE SUDDEN DEATH In Sunday's showdown-which will be played to a sudden death finish if necessary-it will be Unitas, 37-year-old opportunist with a penchant for the sudden, long strike, going against a Dallas defensive unit that has given up just one touchdown in six games. "Anytime you have a quarterback like Unitas, you fear the bomb more than anything,'' Cowboys coach Tom Landry said Friday. "Almost everybody gets beat deep at one time or another, and he's the guy who can put the ball there when it happens." Unitas sat out most of the 1968 season with arm troubles before mounting a touchdown drive in relief of Super Bowl starter Earl Morrall against the Jets. In another battle within the war, the Cowboys' league-leading rushing attack, paced by powerful rookie Duane Thomas and Walt Garrison, will be trying to control the ball against the aggressive Baltimore defenders, whose forte is forcing the turnover. Landry said Garrison, hobbled by a chipped collarbone and sprained ankle, would start "but is only about 75 per cent." HAYES PRIME TARGET If the Colts contain the Dallas ground-gainers, they'll force quarterback Craig Morton, er ratic in the playoffs because of injuries', to go to the air-^with Bob Hayes his primary target "I just hope we can shut off their running game, our offence can put some points on the board and they have to change their game plan," said Bubba Smith, the Colts' mammoth defensive end. "Then we'll just have to get to Morton."

Bombtrdiec Ltd. says Story modification approved TORONTO (CP) - The Globe and Mail says the CNE's board of directors has approved plans for a $12-million to $16-million modification of Exhibition Park stadium in an effort to attract big-league baseball. The plans, prepared by A. D. Margison Associates Ltd., represent an updated version of plans drafted in 1965 for an SB-million horseshoe shaped extension of the stadium. The Globe and Mail says the plans have been sent to Metropolitan Toronto council's stadium committee for further study. The revised plans, says the newspaper, would add 27,000 Mats to the 33,000-seat stadium owned by the municipality. It says the board feels the enlarged open-air stadium would serve the community for the seven- to 10-year period required to complete a proposed 65,000-seat domed stadium at the north end DownsvLew airport. The design, says the Globe and Mail, favors four sports-baseball, football, soccer and track and field. The Immediate objective, says the newspaper, would be to redesign the field to allow Toronto to negotiate for a major league baseball franchise. The Stadium serves as the home field for Toronto Argonauts of the Eastern Football Conference who recently negoti- , ated a new five-year contract 'for use of the grounds. , JOHNNY'S GOT A NEW PAIR OF SHOES - Johnny Unitas, veteran Baltimore Colts quarterback, laces up a new pair of shoes designed especially for artificial turf Game tickets at a premium at Miaml'i Orange Bowl the tight of Sunday's Super Bowl. Me'll lead the Colts against the Dallas Cowboys. Scalpers stand to make plenty MIAMI (API - The Super Bowl game Sunday between Baltimore Colts and Dallas Cowboys could be the scalpers' finest hour since Custer's last stand. The Little Bighorn of professional football is the 80,000-seat Orange Bowl, and matters are getting sticky since approximately 2.5 million people in southern Florida are destined to go gameless. "Got any extras?" the shady characters are asking in Miami Beach hotel lobbies. "If you got any, I'll pay $40 each." If those surgeons will fork over 40 bucks, the going rate for the "retail" ticket seekers is generally considered in the $150 range. Scalpers always operate at prime events such as the World Series, top college football games and at any regu-larly-sold-out arena. But, the Super Bowl Is one of the most-wanted of all one-day sports attractions in the world. Some of the ticket holders even think it pays to advertise. A Pompano Beach newspaper carried the following advertisement during the week leading up to Sunday's match between Dallas Cowboys and Baltimore Colts: "Super Bowl tickets. Due to illness in family must sell four good tickets. $100 each. Need money for doctor bills. Call this number. Ask for Eddie." The whole scene is wild around Miami as the National Football League showdown creeps in. Some natives are scampering up the Florida Turnpike to Fort Pierce-a 120-mile trip-to grab motels  and enjoy the nearest un-blacked-out television showing. Fort Pierce Is about sold out too. Minor hockey In Pee Wee action the Bears banged in a goal in each of the periods and dropped the Flyers 3-1 last night. Vince Petheridge flipped in two goals for the Bears and was aided by Terry Bailey's singleton. For the Flyers Leffingwell managed a single. Bulldogs thump Gaels Winston Churchill Bulldogs pushed their record to 3-1 in the Southwest "B" Boys Basketball League as they dropped Kate Andrews Gaels of Coal-dale 57-45 last night. At half time the Bulldogs maintained a solid 30-18 lead and won going away. Ken Nakarnsa paced the Bulldogs with 19 big points while Allan Harrold and Vic Henza chipped in with 16 and 10 points respectively. For the Gaels LeRay Witbeck notched 14 points while Ed Ned-za managed nine. I SPORTS FANS! Bob Salmon and Cliff Miya-shiro came up with strong performances as they led the Red Wings to a 6-1 romping over the Black Hawks. Salmon slapped in two goals and added two assists while Miyashiro managed a goal and two assists. Rick MacLean, Tracy Gooder and Dave Bechthold tallied once for the winners. R. Simmonds averted the shutout with a third period marker. The Canadians received a two - goal performance from Dave Jackson and went on to trim the Maroons 6-1 in bantam A action Friday. Cam McLennan, Don Mills, David Sirovyak and Dale Nesting added singletons for the winners4. Robert Soltes scored for the Maroons in the first period. TRIPLE TRIUMPH ST.
