Lethbridge Herald {Newspaper} - 1974-01-16,Lethbridge, Alberta 24-THÈ LETHBRIDQE HERALD - W*dn#*d»y. January 1«, 1»74 t Pat Sullivan Isn’t it nice to know you are appreciated? Doesn't it just give you the urge to go right on doing such a great job? I have a fan. He or she is keeping their name a secret, but i know they just sit at home waiting for my column each week. One column in particular, you know the one. a bit of everything? Well, it just thrills this party to no end. How do I know? I get it mailed back to me every week with a nice little note typed at the top. ; It comes from Taber in a nice clean envelope with its aura of mystery. You would almost think the letters were being mailed to the Central Intelligence Agency. Each returned column and note is wiped clean of any prints or smudges. It’s intriguing. Even the milk of human kindness has been wiped up. But that’s okay, I have thick skin. It has gotten this way through years of tyring to please most people, most of the Ume, So keep those cards and letters coming. After all, it’s your money and time. I get paid very well for amusing you. It’s when you stop sending in little notes that I beein to worrv. I don’t feel quite as bad about missing the Super Bowl now as I did Sunday heading out to West Castle. You might recall that I said this year's game had all the makings of being the best in the eight-year histoiy of the National Football League's final. How was I to know Larry Csonka would take it upon himself to tear the Minnesota Vikings apart. I understand, from what I have read and from word of mouth, that when there was a hole made by the Miami Dolphin offensive line, Csonka proceeded to make running room on his own. When 1 heard via the air waves that he had almost single handedly torn the Vikings apart by rushing for 145 yards and .two touchdowns, I though back to the interview Csonka took part in after the Dolphins had bounced the Oakland Raiders in the AFC championship game. ■ There was no smiles, no exuberant outbursts from the big fullback. ■    He stated his case very clearly. There is still one game to play, he said then. The season isn’t over until the final whistle of that one. I thought to myself, well Mr. Conka, you have certamly done a lot for your image by remaining Gung Ho until the final jun. But let’s be honest with each other. ■    How could he hold back the thrill of heading for his third Super Bowl in as many years? In an item I read Monday, I found out how. , Csonka, a two-legged tank that is only human to the extent that his steel chassis is covered with skin, plays every game 150 per cent. The first game of the season carries with it as much importance, at least to Csonka, as the final outcome of the Super Bowl. He makes no bones about it. He likes the money, and after the Super Bowl he is going to find out what it is like to have twice as much. But Csonka is a football player. Nothing more, nothing less. “It’s nice," he says, “to know you are punishing the defensive guys as much as they are punishing you.” The big guy has another side. One that is hard to picture when you see him bruising the opposition defence. At the conclusion of Sunday’s Super Bowl a teenage girl - approached Csonka for his autograph. He could see she was , ^hesitant. “I won’t bite you,” he said. The guy referred to as “battering ram” or “animal” has ‘:;inother side. ! "7. "Just because I'm a fullback doesn’t mean people have to "'tte afraid of me,” he explains. He wonders why people should be wary of him. Little kids Kdo the same to him when he comes near. He wonders just what fifbotball is doing to the people of the country. Kings came up big^ Smith awfully shaky Alright, that^s enough Linesman John Kobal puls the wraps on Bill Kelts of the Pass Red Devils Tuesday after he exchanged blows with Ron Krikke of the Lethbridge Longhorns, Kelts tok an early shower along with Krikke after their fight. Both were watching, from the wings as the Longhorns sloped the Devils 4-3 In overtime. See page 23 for story. World Football League changes major rules LOS ANGELES (AP) - Offence provides the key to the new World Football Lea^e, scheduled to start operations in July with a half dozen rules dramatically differing from those of the established National Football League. President Gary Davidson of the embryonic professional grid organization told reporters Tuesday that 12 franchises are established and would hold a draft of college football players in New York on Tuesday, Jan. 22. That session will be to select initially six players for each team to attempt to sign. In order, the draft will have Memphis, New England, Flor ida, Toronto, Birmingham, New York, Southern Califor* nia, Philadelphia, Hawaii, Chicago, Washington, D.C., and Detroit. Davidson reported the rules changes from NFL procedure would be: L Require the klckoff from the 30-yard line instead of the 40 and thus enhance the possibility of a runback. 2.    Move the goal posts to the rear of the end zone as in college football and Aus make field goals more difficult. 3.    Return missed field goals to the line of scrimmage except when the kick is made from inside the 20 on which occasion the ball would be TIRE SPECIAL AUTOMOTIVE CENTRE FULI 4 PLY TIRES THRU THIS WEEKEND * Itvailable blockwallf 775-14 775-15 _    *560-15 tnZMy Only Whilvwalli Only $1.44 Mar« in Ihc Following 5ii*> *600-1? +iOO.l3 I 695-14 735-14 I 825-U 650.13 *560.1i I 775.14 775-15 I No rrade-in required No charg* for tir« mounllnfl blaclcHolli S35-U 82J-1Í S2515 RUGGED NYLON CORD    DURABLE OUALITY STRONO dependable AIDE OR 20 MONTHS Eicry HAUMAiK ti/« eorrir. guarúi^ltÉ    <ood >^01úrdi oi^d •*4prkma''ihjp WITHOUT llMiT TO MONTHS Ot WlLfS DELUXE CREDIT PLAN AVAILABLE IVIRT SNOW TIRt IN STOCK HIAVT OUTT MOCK AltOHIRf Motf North Afnericon Cart Our fldeit heavy duty thocki, quoro>ite«d to iail os long ai you own fhe cor or we'l! give you 0 fríe repioctmeni.

On the Utter points, Davidson said plans will be to have a kickoff to start the 15-minute extra period and another at the 7 Vi-minute mark so both teams get to put the ball in play. The league plans to begin play in mid-July with a 20-game schedule, winding up in November. Davidson said that teams in the WFL would be given college preferences so that a team might have preference on all players from one given college after the first three rounds of the draft. $100 fine for Cedeno SANTO DOMINGO (AP) -Houston Astros outfielder Cesar Cedeno was found guilty Tuesday of involuntary manslaughter in the death of a 19-year-old girl and fined HOO by a Dominican Republic judge. Cedeno immediately paid the fine levied by Judge Porfirio Natera. Natera's ruling came despite a prosecution request at the I'/i-hour trial here Monday for dismissal of the charges against Cedeno for lack of evidence. The baseball star, a native of Santo Domingo, was accused in connection with the death of Altagracia de la Cruz, who died of a gunshot wound in the head Dec. 11 in a hotel room. By GLEN COLE Canadian Pré» Staff Writer When Los Angeles Kings made their first National Hockey League appearance in the Montreal Forum, on Dec. 2. 1967. they won 3-2 over the Canadiens. But going into Tuesday night’s meeting with Montreal, the Kings had only one win, 14 losses and two ties on Montreal ice and Los Angeles was expected to lose once again to the Canadiens, who knocked off East Division leading Boston Bruins 7-3 Saturday. But the Kings came up with rugged checking and eked out a 2-1 triumph in one of four NHL games. In other action, New York Islanders edged Atlanta Flames 4>3, Minnesota North Star^ defeated St. Louis Blues 3-3    and Vancouver Canucks downed Toronto Maple Leafs 4-2. Montreal coach Scotty Bowman said the Kings checked well “and got some good goal-tending.” “They would have beaten a lot of clubs tonight." The Kings took a 1>0 lead late in the second period when Bob Berry, with Juba Widing assisting, snapped a wrist shot past Montreal goalie Wayne Thomas. Mike Murphy made it 2-0 with 4Va minutes gone in the final period and Montreal’s Murray Wilson got the Canadiens back in the game at 5:24 with his eighth goal of the year.

Mantle, former New York Yankee outfielder, was one of seven new names on the list of ballots mailed to members of the Baseball Writers’ Association of America last month. Some 3S0 ballots were returned and Jack Lang, secretary-treasurer of the BBWAA, was set to count the votes Tuesday night with the results due to be announced today at a 10 a.m. EST news conference. To be elected to the Hall of Fame, a player must receive votes on 75 per cent of tHe ballots. With 350 ballots cast, the magic number for «lection this year would be 3V2. votes short a year í slugger Ralph Kiner, i man disadvantage when Frank St. Marseille drew a tripping penalty and goalie Rogatien Vachon was caught with an illegal stick. Vachon, whose stick was 3Í4 inches wide on the blade, said he didn't mind the $200 fine because of the win. It was the first time he had beaten his former Montreal team-mates. Islanders’ goalie Gerry Desjardins was on the bench with 13 minutes gone in the se- cond period when coach Al Arbour told him to replace Billy Smith in the New York goal. The move came after Keith McCreary put a SO-foot shot past Smith, who was beaten on a 70-footer in the first period by Randy Maneiy.    ' McCreary’s goal cut the Islanders’ lead to 4-3 but Desjardins kicked out 10 Atlanta shots—seven in the final period—to preserve the win. Alan Eagleson not very happy TORONTO (CP) - Alan Eagleson, executive director of the National Hockey League Players' Association, said Tuesday the group wants written assurance there will be no merger between the NHL and World Hockey Association. . “ ... we’re satisfied the upcoming agreement is the first step in the wrong direction,” he said in an interview. The leagues have announced a plan which, if approved, would end their 18-month war, settle legal action and result in exhibition games between the NHL and WHA. The Toronto lawyer said peace helps everyone except ttie NHL player. “It’s a help to the WHA because it convinces potential shareholders that it’s good to invest; it will be only a matter of Ume until they’re getting Bobby Orr coming to their rink. It’s a clear sign that merger is coming. “It helps the NHL because it's good business for them. “And, it helps the WHA players because it gets them back into the mainstream of hockey. The only people who don’t profit are the NHL players, who have evei^thing to lose (bargainii^ positions) and nothing to gain.” Eagleson' said ht met Chicago and Boston players and received a unanimous rejection of the concept of exhibition games between the leagues. He added that refusal of the players to participate in the games will lead to negotiations between the NHL and the association. “Just three weeks ago the league wa^ telling me how they couldn’t afford anything. They couldn’t fund our dental plait, or increase meal money or make pension changes. “Now, they're coming up with ¥300,000 to $400,000 each to pay the WHA, and they’re buying California Golden Seals.” ELRICH TIRE SPORT SCORES WHA LEASERS ALBERTA JUNIOR w L T F A PI* Red Deer... 24 13 2 193 1S1 50 Calgary ---- 22 15 0 166 158 44 Edmonton .. 21 18 2 194 175 44 The Pass ... 19 19 0 153 141 38 Drumheller , 14 23 2 147 104 30 Lethbridge . 12 24 2 157 223 26 SCORERS G A P Pim Mitchell, Drum .. 27 36 65 16 Wittchen, RD ... .... 30 33 63 24 Sutter, RD .. , 27 31 58 72 Joevenazzo.
