Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - January 16, 1975, Lethbridge, Alberta 12 THE LETHBRIDGE HERALD Thursday, Januify 16, 1975 Book your European Charter Now For ill your cenlicl Art Williams Travel Village Mill Phont 328-3201 The Herald Sports LETHBMD6E OFFICE FURNITURE LTD. lower Level 7th Street Shopping Mill Lethbrldge, Alberu Phone (403) 328-7411 ADDING MACHINES A Canadian junior league very strong possibility TORONTO (CP) There is a strong possibility Canada's top three junior hockey leagues will band together and become a separate indentity, "maybe un- der the CAHA (Canadian Amateur Hockey Association) Ed Chynoweth, president of the Western Canada Hockey Association, said Wednesday. In a telephone interview from Vic- toria, Chynoweth says he has been in contact with the Quebec and Ontario ma- jor junior leagues and he is "very op-, timistic" they will join forces in their attempts to get money from the professional leagues for development of. 'junior players. Chynoweth announced Monday that WCHL governors had agreed unanimously to withdraw from the CAHA after this season, citing a lack of leadership in pressing the professionals for the money outstanding as the 'problem facing club owners in his league. "I have been in contact with the Ontario and Quebec leagues, outlining our position to them and have made it clear that we want to continue in partnership with them SEPARATION LIKELY "I am not in a position to speak for the Ontario and Quebec leagues, but I would say personally there is certainly a strong possibility that we will become a separate identity, maybe under the CAHA umbrella." Chynoweth said the crux of his league's decision to withdraw from the CAHA "is that somebody had to take a stand. We can't continue to operate without being paid development money from the professionals." The CAHA is in continuing contact with delinquent National Hockey League and World Hockey Association teams trying to collect the still owed for drafted juniors. "I'm sure the CAHA has attempted to get the money from the pros, but men on the CAHA executive cannot appreciate the problem of an owner who has to go into the bank for to keep his team going." The major reason for the WCHL's deci- sion to withdraw from the CAHA is its desire to negotiate an agreement of its own with the pros. WANT MONEY PROMPTLY "We would like to be in a position to receive the draft money directly from the pros immediately upon the signing of a Chynoweth said. "If the players can get a bonus for signing, why not the clubs they played for? We're always the poor country cousins. We always go to the pros with our hats in our hands, yet it's our product." Under the one-year agreement signed among the NHL, WHA and the CAHA-in which draft money is sent to the CAHA head office and then distributed to the various the junior leagues are powerless to take action against the pros should draft money be overdue, as is the case this year. CAHA president Jack Devine said Wednesday the association will hold dis- cussions with the WCHL in the next few months in hopes of getting the league to change its mind about withdrawing. Chynoweth, in response to Devine's offer for a meeting, said he would be receptive. "We're open-minded people. We're not holding a gun to anybody's head. What we are saying to the CAHA is that they'd better reassess their system because un- der the present system, we're not interested." Becomes first Montreal coach named Levy gets nod as well as five grand Ali a solid male choice NEW YORK (AP) Muhammad Ali evened two scores last Joe Frazier and regaining the heavyweight championship he had lost out of the ring. For his successes, he has been named The Associated Press male athlete of 1974. Ali, who regained'the title had a lot to smile about in 1974. "It was my greatest said Ali who by beat- ing Joe Frazier on a un- animous 12-round decision Jan. 28 at Madison Square Garden to avenge a 15-round decision loss to Frazier, then champion, March 8, 1971. by knocking out George "UPSET LISTON Foreman in Africa, received But it was Oct. 30 in the ear- ly morning hours 162 votes in a poll of sports writers and sportscasters from across the United States. Hank Aaron, who broke Babe Ruth's career home run record by hitting No. 715 in April, finished second with 110 points and Lou Brock, who set a major league base-stealing record of 118, was third with 67: Tennis star Chris Evert was named female athlete of the year for 1974 on Wednesday. "Do they pick the best athlete or the most asked Ali when informed he had been chosen. "The he was told. Ali smiled. The 32-year-old champion morning hours in the African country of Zaire that Ali reached another peak in a career marked by these high- lights: His title-winning upset of Sonny Liston in 1964, the con- viction for refusing induction into the military and his being stripped of the title in 1967, his dramatic return to the ring in 1970 against Jerry Quarry, the first Frazier fight in 1971 and the U.S. Supreme Court rever- sal of the draft-evasion con- viction that same year, and his broken-jaw loss to Ken Norton in 1973, which many boxing observers felt signall- ed the end of his career. On that morning in Zaire, as a 3-1 underdog, All knocked Sears Tire and Auto Centre ;out George Foreman in the .eighth round and regained the championship, a decade after he first won it and seven years after he had it stripped from him. Last year was also a big one to Ali financially. He got about million for fighting Frazier and million for his effort against Foreman. In winning the poll, Ali be- come only the third boxer to do so. The others were heavy- weight Joe Louis, in 1935 when he won the title by knocking out Jim Braddock, and Ingemar Johannson, in 1959 when he gained the title by knocking out Floyd Patterson. Racquetball tourney set A racquetball tournament, in doubles events only, is slated for Friday, Saturday and Sunday at the Lethbridge YMCA. Action will get under way Friday morning at eight, with the finals set for Sunday. Men's and women's doubles champions will be named. There are 16 men's teams entered and eight women's teams. The tournament will be run on a single elimination basis with each team guaranteed at least two matches. Saturday evening a social will be held at the Miner's Library, keeping with the theme of the tournament that it will be a fun experience rather than a highly com- petitive competition. EDMONTON (CP) Marv Levy, a Harvard graduate who led Montreal Alouettes to the Grey Cup in his second season as coach, was named 1974 coach of the year in the Canadian Football League Wednesday night. He succeeded Jack Gotta, who won in 1972 and 1973 as head coach of Ottawa Rough Riders. Gotta coached Birm- ingham of the World Football League in 1974. Levy accepted the trophy from Annis Stukus, in whose name the award was estab- lished by the Edmonton Eskimo Alumni Association in 1961. Levy, 48, said in an inter- view after the presentation that he did not allow himself to think about winning the honor, which this year for the first time carried a cash prize. "It was a little like when we were getting ready for the Grey Cup against Edmonton. I thought we had a chance to win the game and I thought in the last few days that I might have a chance for the award, but I didn't dwell on it." Levy, who has no children, said the Alouettes are well along in their recruiting for 1975 but much work remains to be done. He expects to go to his home at Costa Del Ray, Calif., for a rest before settl- ing back into Montreal. Levy is the first Montreal coach to win the Stukus trophy. A crowd of about 350 attend- ed the ceremony, at which coaches of all nine teams spoke briefly. Levy said it was an honor to win a trophy named after Stukus, "who has done much for football and a great deal for Canadian football." Stukus began his CFL career as a player in Toronto and later was instrumental in establishing CFL franchises at Edmonton and Vancouver. Levy praised his assistant coaches, general manager Bob Geary and owner Sam Berger as well as the Alouette players for their efforts. CREDITS WHOLE STAFF "I'm here as a represen- tative of the efforts of a lot of people. "To call this a coach-of-the- year award is almost a mis- nomer. It should be named for the coaching staff of the year." Levy inherited a Montreal team that won four games and lost 10 in 1972. The next season, the Alouettes reached the Eastern Football Conference final. Last season, they defeated Edmonton for the Grey Cup. Levy graduated from Coe College in Cedar Rapids Iowa, as a Phi Beta Kappa and later won his master's degree in history at Harvard. He also won letters in basket- ball, football and track. He served as head coach at Coe College, University of New Mexico, University of California and William and Mary College before moving to the National Football League. He was named coach of the year in the Skyline Conference while head coach at New Mex- National Football League of the year in Canada in 1967 came in 1969 when he joined for his efforts with Calgary Philadelphia Eagles as an Levy's first exposure to the assistant to Jerry Williams, now head coach of Hamilton Tiger-Cats. Williams was named coach Stampeders. Levy also served under George Allen in Los Angeles and Washington before mov- ing to Canada. Would you believe Miller favorite? New Colt coach Ted Marchibroda, seated with his wife, was named head coach of the Baltimore Colts Wednesday. He has been an assistant coach in the National Football League for 14 years. Rosters to grow, but by how much? TUCSON, Ariz. (AP) It isn't so much of a question of who, but how many, going into today's first round of the Tucson open golf tournament. Johnny Miller ranks as an odds-on choice, probably the heaviest favorite since Jack Nicklaus' rampages of a cou- ple of years ago, to pull down the first prize in the 72- hole test on the toughened 200-yard, par 72 Tucson National Golf Club course. How many is a different matter. It provides the major guessing game in pre-tourna- ment speculation. How many will he win by? Miller's victory margins in his last three individual starts have been by eight, seven and an all-time record 14 strokes in last week's Phoenix Open, the opening event on this year's pro golf tour schedule. He won that one with a 260 total, the lowest 72-hole score in the last 20 years of tour competition. And he says he's playing better now than last season when he rolled off eight American most in almost a quarter of a cen- tury, accumulated a record in prize winnings and collected playerof-the-year honors. "I think I'm a stronger, bet- ter player the 27-year- old Miller said. "My weak points aren't "Of course, winning here is no cinch. It's no. sure thing. I've got to think about this tournament, not the last one or the next one. I'll just try to play a good first round here and go on from there." Miller admitted, however, he's looking for a duplication of last year's record sweep of the first, three events of the year. His victory last week gave him one leg on it. This is the second. "I dont like to look too far Miller said. "But if I could win here, I think I'd have a good chance. I have an advantage at Pebble Beach. That's like home to me. I grew up playing on courses like that." Canadian Complete 4- Wheel Brake Overhaul (Wheel cylinder and seals good brakes insure safety. Faulty brakes are dangerous.

PLAY TO DRAW Raymond seniors and Warner seniors battled to a 6-fi draw in a game 'played at Warner.

Nelson Doenz, Ron Minion, Hal Culler, Sheldon Ball, Mike Lycar and Ray Dreger were the Warner goal getters. women win Cana- dian women's volleyball team used a fast-set, multiple offence Wednesday night to roll over the South Korean Highway Corporation team in exhibition volleyball. Canada, coached by South Korean Moo in- stigated the effective offence, was ahead 11-r in the third game but the South Koreans fought back. The teams move on to Calgary tonight to compete in an international tournament. EDMONTON (CP) Coaches of the nine Canadian Football League teams agreed Wednesday that play- ing rosters should be increas- ed from the current 32, but they did not agree on the number. At a news conference setting the stage for a later announcement of the CFL coach of the year for 1974, coaches said economic fac- tors would have to be in- vestigated by owners and general managers before a new level could be set. Joe Moss, who served as in- terim head coach of Toronto Argonauts last season and became an assistant again when Russ Jackson was hired as head coach, said the ideal roster would be 40, with taxi squads outlawed. Ray Jauch of Edmonton Eskimos, Bud Riley of Win- nipeg Blue Bombers and Eagle Keys of British Colum- bia Lions said a more- practical number would be 36. Jim Wood of Calgary Stampeders said the question of rosters must not be left with coaches "because we'd take all the players we could get." Keys said every Canadian team is forced to keep players around because of injuries and advocated recognizing taxi squads players who work out with the team bul are not part of the roster as a solution to the injury problem every club en- counters during a season. Wood said a taxi squad of Canadian players would help solve one of the coaches' ma- jor difficulties, developing young prospects. Many young players lacked experience and were discouraged by being forced to move from team to team because the current 32- man roster did not leave room for them. Wood said he was opposed Northcott out to rules approved recently to open up the kicking game by allowing blocking above the waist on punt returns. Blocking on punt returns will lead to injuries, he said. He doubted the change would open up the game as much as was intended. "I think you'll find every team kicking higher and shorter and being careful not to kick too far to provide coverage. And we won't hesitate to kick out of bounds rather than give the ball to a top runner. "Take Johnny Rodgers of Montreal, for example. I'll fire the guy who kicks it to him." Marv Levy, coach of the' Grey Cup champion' Alouettes, said he favored almost all the changes that promise to open up the game, but he was unhappy that a reduction to 11-men was not approved.
