First victory for Vauxhall The cellar dwelling Vaux- hall Vikings picked up their first Southwest Boy's Basket- ball Conference victory edging Taber W. R. Myers Trotters 56- 55 in Taber Saturday night. It was sweet revenge for the Vikings, who had suffered a humiliating 9W3 loss to the fourth place Trotters in the sec- ond annual Southwest Basket- ball Conference tourney last weekend. Jake Rempel paced the Vik- ings with a 21 point perform- ance while Marvin An d er s o n hooped 18 for the Trotters.

Broken ankle for Clifford GRDJDELWALD (CP) Betsy Clifford of Ottawa hit a bump on the slopes of this Swiss mountain village Sunday, broke her right ankle and cracked her left heel. The Canadian world giant sla- lom champion will be lost for the Winter Olympics but her father, John Clifford, said in Ot- tawa be was told by her Swiss coach, Peter F r a n z e n, she might be back on skis in six weeks. Miss Clifford, who turned 18 last Oct. 15, was out practising Sunday for the World Cup events here Tuesday and Wednesday when she hit the bump and landed wrongly. She suffered a double fracture in her right ankle and damaged her left heel. Both her legs are in casts. "We spoke to her yesterday afternoon and of course she was very her father said. "She had been working to- ward the Olympics for the last four years. Ji got the impression though that she was lucky that the injuries were not worse." Her spill was sad news to the Canadian team and coach Fran. Ten, who said Miss Clifford will miss the Winter Games at Sap- poro, Japan, Feb. 3-13. Mandeville and his son Bryan. One by one these men of sport led the way for featured speak- er Clarence Kobison, the track coa'oh at Brigham Young Uni- versity. Robison, without a doubt, is a truly fine speaker and he im- pressed all that were on hand Saturday evening. The hour was late when he took over line microphone and it goes without saying he could have taken longer. He could have gotten away with it Satur- day night. As they sometimes say, he owned the gathering. He didn't leave thorn in the aisles with jokes. But while his message was being delivered he did use sprinkles of humor. To Robison the greatest com- bination in the world is a father and son and he couldn't ex- press enough, his belief in the strength of respect for one's father. A rather of nine, including six sons, Robison, it goes without saying, is somewhat of an ex- pert on tiie father-son relation- ship. "The greatest advice you will ever get in your said Robisbn, "will come from your parents. They are ttie key to your process of learning." He continued on talking to the young fellows in the crowd with yet another message for their future use. "Believe in yourself, have courage and he added. He went on to tell the boys to always tell themselves "Y o u can do it. It makes a big difference k you have self-con- fidence." The featured speaker assured the gathering it was necessary to ask for help at times. Even great atheletes know how to pray. Robsion put the finishing touches on an evening that got under way with Jerome Plfttt's advice to the boys to keep at it. "The last person you want to fool is he said. Saturday was also a big night for three LDS members who have worked hard for the youth of fihe church and who have in- dividually added something in the field of sports. PARKER TOPS The junior athlete of the year was Lavar Parker of Fort Macleod while Uie senior athlete honors went to Elaine Burbank of Vauxhall. A well-kept sec- ret got past emcee Low as he called for the sportsman of the year to be announced and It turned out to be himself. Saturday's dinner had the kind of balance in speakers that makes dinners a success. Each speaker had a message and each was entertaining. Stan Maxwell, who admitted to butterflies for a month ex- pressed his appreciation of Lethbridge and the fine work a good many people are doing. Shaw was still excited ahnut winning the Grey Cup and felt athome with the place packed with Calgary fans. Ferenz, a native son ot Lelh- bridge, explained what the duties of a travelling secretary are aod talked 'on his favorite subject, Larry Bowa. Harold Mandevillc's quick wit was well appreciated as was MaV Gibb's as he told a story about every member of Hie head table. Bowa, who batted just before clean-up hitter Robison, is load- ed with talent on and off the baseball diamond. At 26 years of age he is touted as the best shortstop in the National League and pos- sibly the majors. He didn't make any errors behind microphone. The Philadelphia Phillies, with goodwill ambas- sadors Ferenz and Bowa lead- ing the way, made a lot of new friends in Lethbridge Saturday night. And so it goes into the book as success number four. The only thing wrong with it is it won't be until this time next year When the fifth dinner is held. CONTEMPLATING THEIR TURN TO TALK Four head table guests ot Saturtiay's IDS Father and Son banquet contemplate their turn to talk.

Some 450 fathers and sons were on hand at the dinner. Magnussen wasn't at her best LONDON, Ont. (CP) Karen Magnussen left the Canadian figure skating championships, this weekend with her third suc- cessive senior women's title, but this time the crown was slightly tarnished. The 19-year-old North Vancou- ver, B.C., skater, named Sun- day Canada's outstanding fe- Frazier easy victor NEW ORLEANS (AP) Heavyweight champion Joe Frazier accepted congratula- tions from the man and told him, "I hope to see you soon big fellow." The man was George Foreman. Tlie meeting would be in the ring. "He's okay. He wants to fight again in a couple of manager Yank Durham said Sunday 'after Frazier knocked down Terry Daniels five times and stopped Mm in the fourth round Saturday night in his first fight since he outpointed Mu- hammad Ali last March 8. "I'd like to fight again in maybe a month or said Frazier. "I don't like to hide the championship. I don't like to smother it." Frazier did not mention a spe- cific opponent for his next title defence but he always men- tioned the unbeaten Foreman when the subject of future oppo- nents arose during the week preceeding the Daniels fight. Foreman has not called publicly for a fight with Frazier. But Frazier has made it clear he is not in any hurry for a rematch with Ali, whom Frazier usually calls "Clay." Ali has contended that he really beat Frazier and put him into the hospital, and although Frazier said this did not bother him, he also said, "I feel Clay is gonna have to respect me more because I don't need him." Frazier, 28, who did have high blood pressure alter the All fight, appeared in good condi- tion Saturday night although he did weigh the heaviest of his career at His previous high was 209 each for Marion Connors and Jimmy Ellis. Frazier said he felt he fought at 90 per cent of peak perform- ance but it would be hard to con- vince Daniels that the champion could be better. male athlete of 1971, touched a controversy Saturday night' when she fell two or three times during a difficult free-skating program. Amid the buzzing of specta tors, including many seasoned observers, Miss Magnussen, Canada's hope tor a gold medal at the Winter Olympics in Sap- poro, Japan, next month, re- ceived high scores for technical merit and artistic impression from the panel of five judges. Her scores for technical meril read 5.7, 5.4, 5.6, 5.6 and 5.7 while she received 5.7, 5.6, 5.5, 5.7 and 5.7 for artistic impres- sion. A score of 6 is perfect. An interpretation ot judges and judging released to the press for the championships by the Canadian Figure Skating Association states: "Free skating is Judged in two merit, which includes difficulty and va- riety of the moves skated, anc secondly, artistic impression which includes ease of move- ment and sureness in time to the music, carriage and pos ture, harmonious position and utilization of the ice surface, A fall in itself is no bar to win- ning, but is reflected in the marks for technical merit." With the exception of two judpges, Miss Magnussen's marks were higher then those of any of the other 20 senior women's competitors. One veteran competitive skater, who asked not to be identified, said it was "a crying shame" the judges seemed to favor Miss Magnussen. Another said it "must be dis- c o u r a g i n g for the younger skaters" when "some thing like this happens." DENIES FALLING Added fuel to the controversy came when Miss Magnussen de- nied falling during one jump at- tempt. Miss Magnussen said she fell on two attempts at double axels. But when asked If she fell on a double cherry flip, she replied; "I didn't mess that up." Many of the veteran skaters in the stands, all of whom wished to remain nameless said Miss Magnussen's at least one the ice during the attempt. Don Jackson, 1962 world champion, said that "in the rules, it's considered a fall if you put your hands down (on the When asked how many times Miss Magnussen fell, he re- plied: "I think there were three." Miss Magnussen's winning the senior women's title was not in question, but the high scores for what expert observers termed a bad performance.
