Pat Sullivan The happiest guy in Lethbridge Thursday had to be Paul Rusznai(. Wonderful Whitey and Mighty Mickey made it to baseball's Hall of Fame. Rusznak, for those of you who don't know, is as avid a New York Yankee fan as Reno Lizzi is a Los Angeles Dodger fan. In fact, early last fall, when it looked like the World Series could feature the Dodgers and Yankees Rusznak and Lizzi, who just happen to be partners in a clothing store, went on a three-day work week. Lizzi worked Monday to Wednesday and Rusznak Thursday to Saturday to avoid communication and a possible confrontation over whose club was best. However, both the Yankees and Dodgers took the nine of hearts early and all was solved. But for Rusznak, Thursday was one of his better days. Mickey Mantle, a quiet country boy who could hit, and Whitey Ford, a tough city kid who could pitch, made it to baseball's Hall of Fame. * * * For two guys who had very little in common, their selection to the Hall made it all worthwhile. Statistics bore me as I'm sure they do you. But these two former New York Yankees were in a class by themselves. It has often been said that "how good would Mantle have been with two good pins (legs)? Baseball never marred Ford's health, but it has left Mantle with an ailing right knee and left elbow. Mai\^le left the game because he couldn't hit anymore. His knees hurt but he couldn't hold the bat properly to hit lefthanders. He still dreams about a comeback. He misses the championships but not the hotels and the travelling. Would he change anything? Given the opportunity, Mantle would like to play in a ballpark that had a centrefield. Of all of his 436 home runs, he only hit two over the centrefield wall in Yankee Stadium. Mantle can remember a lot of good times. But one embarrassing moment he can recall was the time he cost Ford a 2(l^game win season. The Yankees had clinched the pennant the day next to last and had a party. Both Ford and Mantle got into scotch pretty good. But Ford was sharp the next day. Mantle, on the other hand, ^yasn't. , Mantle dropped a pop fly and allowed a run to score and then stranded Ford on third later in the game. Mantle never forgot it. * * * It was all smiles and laughter Thursday as the two old friends made it together. Ford told about the time in San Francisco at an all-star game he used a spitball. : The day before the game Ford and Mantle played golf with Peter Stoneham whose father Horace owned the Giants. The two needed shoes, sweaters and golf balls and ran up a bill for $200. When they tried to pay Horace, who owned the golf course as well, he said he would bet Ford, double or nothing, Willie Mays would get a hit off of Ford. Ford got two quick strokes on Mays and then loaded up the ball. It started off at Mays' head and broke over the plate. According to Ford he had never seen Mantle so happy. * * * What's hard to believe about the selection of the two Yankees is twofold. First of all, Ford missed in last year's balloting. This time around he barely made it as he collected 284 points, just 12 over the limit. Secondly, Mantle, one of the all-time greats of the game despite the fact I hated the Yankees with a passion, was not voted for by 43 writers. I can see a handful of writers who during Mantles career may have had a run in with him and held a grudge, but not 43. Crozier was in hurry to leave after loss Cardston earns trip east Kodiaks victorious If any basketball enthusiasts are keeping a running tab on inter-city collegiate men's exhibition basketball scores, chalk up a victory for the Lethbridge Community College Kodiaks. The Kodiaks, who toil in the Alberta College Athletic Conference Men's Basketball League, came up with a solid two-way effort to defeat the University of Lethbridge Pronghorns of the Canada West University Men's Basketball League 98-90 in a friendly match staged at the LCC gym. The two city rivals have only squared off twice this season and no scores were taken in the first match-up. In last night's encounter, the Kodiaks' two new starters Gary Williams and Kendon Canadian juniors to meet U.S. team? LONDON, Ont. (CP) -Murray Williamson, coach of-the United States' national-junior hockey team, wants the best U.S. club to meet Canada's Memorial Cup winner for the North American junior championship. He said the proposed competition could be played on a best-of-five or best-of-seven basis in Minneapolis, Colorado Springs, Toronto or Winnipeg. "I think it's pretty obvious to all of us in hockey that a world junior championship is inevitable," he said in a telephone interview from Bloomington, Minn. "It's the only level that affords every country an equal chance. The age limits are the same for all countries and However, for Mantle and Ford, the big thrill is being elected to the Hall of Fame together. As Mantle said Ford was the greatest pitcher he ever saw and Ford added that he was glad he never had to face Mantle, wn-r � 1 Together they both agreed being elected to the Hall was \I^QQf(Cf|Q Minor hockey Jim Woolf's third period marker gave the Argos a slim 1-0 victory over the Nuggets in Going to Calgary WINTER RATES STETSON MOTEL 10002 MaclMd Trail S.

Junior hockey doesn't have the political hangups that the senior world championships do." He also said the U.S. should follow Canada's lead and withdraw from future senior world hockey tournaments. DOESN'T MAKE SENSE Williams, who coached the U.S. team to fifth place in the recent six-country junior tournament at Leningrad, said a senior world tournament no longer makes sense because "it discriminates against a country using its best hockey players." "Canada looked bad at the time when it pulled out of the world championships a couple of years ago because the Europeans wouldn't permit the use of professionals on the team.

Oberg sparks Bottler win Dennis Oberg picked up four points as he paced Purity Bottling to a 6-2 triumph over the Labor Club in one of two games run off in the City Recreation Hockey League.

Eakett gave the host club the extra power they were looking for all season. Williams, who just signed to play with the Kodiaks once again, led the local college over his former teammates with a brilliant 25-point performance. Eakett, who had sat out a year due to a kne* injury, proved the lay-off didn't bother him as he followed Williams' outing with 18 points. Allan Pard aided in the win with 16 points while Brent Fairbanks chipped in with 12. Roger Baldry and Tom Raffeiner paced the Pronghorns' scorers with 18 points apiece while Phil Letham and Peter Sikora managed 16 and 15 points respectively. The Kodiaks, who led 42-36 at the half, hooped 48 per cent of their tries while the Pronghorns only managed a 32 per cent average. Kodiaks also shot 70 per cent from the free throw line compared to the Pronghorns' 68 per cent. Both the Kodiaks and Pronghorns will be on the road this weekend but in different directions. The Kodiaks will travel south to Pocatello for an exhibition game Saturday while the Pronghorns take a ride east to Saskatoon for a pair of CWUMBL games against the University of Saskatchewan Huskies. The Pronghorns see action tonight and again Saturday night. Meanwhile Cardston Cougars earned a berth in the annual Regina Luther tournament Wednesday night, but they did it the hard way.

Phone 328-9271 By GLENN COLE Canadian Press Staff Writer Coach Joe Crozier didn't want to say anything Thursday night after his Buffalo Sabres were crushed 7-2 by Philadelphia Flyers in one of three National Hockey League games. When reporters went to the Buffalo dressing room for the post-game quiz, Crozier had disappeared. In other games, Montreal Canadiens hammered Minnesota North Stars 6-1 and St. Louis Blues nipped New York Rangers 3-2. Flyers 7 Sabres 2 Like most winning coaches, Fred Shero was willing to chat about the Flyers' seventh home-ice win over Buffalo in four years. The Sabres now are 0-7-2 lifetime in Philadelphia. "The secret to beating Buffalo is keeping the puck away from their big guns," Shero said, referring to Gilbert Per-reault and Rick Martin. Shero also noted a major flaw in Buffalo's defence. "When we can come out cf the comer seven times, something is wrong," he said. Bobby Clarke scored twice for the Flyers, including a short-handed goal at 1:40 of the first period to lead Philadelphia to its seventh straight home-ice win. Orest Kindrachuk, Terry Crisp, Bill Flett, Rick MacLeish and Barry Ashbee got the other goals for the Flyers, who now have a five- PHILADELPHIA 7, BUFFALO 2 FIral pwlod - 1.

Rookie left winger Bob Gainey broke a 32-game goal-scoring drought and goalie MichelLarocque kicked out 36 shots as Montreal defeated' Minnesota for the fourth time this season. Two goals by Garry Unger and another by Chris Evans gave St. Louis its win over New York. The victory helped St. Louis snap a four-game losing streak. In off-ice news, the NHL announced that defenceman Brian Watson of the Blues has been indefinitely suspended until the league can investigate an incident in Wednesday's Pittsburgh Penguins-Los Angeles Kings match. Watson, who was dealt to the Blues by the Penguins after the Wednesday clash, was ejected from the game for apparently manhandling linesman Bob McLaren after Watson and the Kings Dan Maloney fought. The Penguins, who play in Vancouver tonight against the Canucks, acquired defenceman Ron Stackhouse in their third deal in two weeks. To get Stackhouse from Detroit, Pittsburgh sent goalie Jim Rutherford and defenceman Jack Lynch to the Red Wings. It is now official, Taber wants a team CALGARY (Special) -The Alberta Junior Hockey League has received a formal application for a new franchise from a group of businessmen in Taber, the league announced Thursday. Jim Scoular, league president, said in a news release that a telephone poll of the AJHL board of directors would be conducted to determine if the new franchise will be accepted. He said he was optimistic Taber, about 120 miles southeast of Calgary, would get into the league. The subject had been raised in general terms at a league meeting earlier this month and response from the six member teams was favorable, Scoular said. He added he is hopeful a decision will be announced before the end of the month. The AJHL currently comprises Red Deer Rustlers, Lethbridge Longhorns, the Pass Red Devils, Edmonton Mets, Calgary Canucks and Drumheller Falcons. Meanwhile the Falcons broke a seven-game losing streak Thursday night with a 4-2 win over Calgary Canucks in the Alberta Junior League. Roger Mitchell led the Falcons with two goals, and singles were added by Diennis Wallis and Kevin Jabusch. Mike Mclvor and Jerry Bancks replied for the Canucks, who managed a 1-1 first-period tie but trailed 2-1 after 40 minutes. Drumheller outshot Calgary 41-29. Each team had five minor penalties, and Calgary also received a 10-minute misconduct. i ELRICH TIRE SPORT SCORES Miller continues blazing season TUCSON, Ariz. (AP) -Johnny Miller, the only champion the pro golf tour has had this season, blazed home with a 10-under-par 62 and established a four-stroke lead Thursday in the first round of the $150,000 Dean Martin-Tucson Open golf tournament. The 26-year-old set the course record on the 7,305-yard Tucson National Golf ^Club layout and kept alive his record of breaking par in every competitive round this year. He won the weather-shortened Bing Crosby touma-, ment that opened the season, rallied for a dramatic victory last week at Phoenix and is seeking to become the first man since Arnold Palmer in 1%2 to win three consecutive American tour events. No one has ever swept the first three titles in the season. Actually, Miller has won his last three starts. He took the individual championship in the World Cup competition in Spain in his last 1973 appearance. Jerry Heard and Allen Miller, no relation, were the only players in the field able to keep the current U.S. Open champion in sight. Each had a 66, six-under-par. Sanders had a 67, while the group at 68 included Orville Moody, Gibby Gilbert, Roy Pace and George Johnson. - Defending champion Bruce Crampton of Australia had a 73. Rookie Ben Crenshaw had a 70 and Lee Treviiio was in with a 73. Palmer, Jack Nicklaus and Tom Weiskopf are not competing. "I don't mean to be ciocky or anything like that," Miller said, "But I think I can win again. "If I don't start making mental errors, I don't see why I can't finish the tournament 15 under-I'm 10 under ' now-and I think 15 under will win it." Miller's stunning effort included II birdies-he missed an eagle by two inches on one hole-a single bogey, one missed green and only two missed fairways.
