Lethbridge Herald (Newspaper) - January 18, 1974, Lethbridge, Alberta 'Vine suffer losses While nine quartets advanced to the A section of the 1974 Southern Alberta District 2 men's British Consol playdowns, nine others began an uphill climb. For three of the nine rinks who suffered setbacks, it will be all over this evening at the conclusion of the 5:30 draw. Eighteen rinks in all, 15 from Lethbridge, opened play in the four-day event Thursday night at the Lethbridge Curling Club. In Thursday's first round of play Enso Baceda belted Dave Forry 11-6 in a battle of club-mates. Gerry Coyne of the host club dropped a 9-4 verdict to Lethbridge's Don Hipfner while Cliff Forry got past a stubborn Tom Fukami of Picture Butte 9-8 in an extra end. Bob Sapsford of Lethbridge had little trouble with Glen Turner of Barons as he chalked up an 11-6 triumph. Lloyd Kanewischer of Lethbridge downed Don Tillotson, also of the city 10-6 while Bill Kar-bashewski of the city registered the same score in bouncing Clarke Greene of Lethbridge. In what could be called the only upset of the evening Garth Pilling of Lethbridge got past Lawrence Lennon 9-7 while Scott Henderson edged Roy Cleland 7-5 and John Barron of Picture Butte scored ai narrow 11-10 win over Lyle Davis. Henderson, Cleland and Davis are all of Lethbridge. In tonight's action in section "A" Kanewischer meets Kar-bashewski, Pilling takes on Baceda, Henderson is matched with Barron and Cliff Forry battles Hipfner. On the "B" side of the ledger Davis will try to stay alive in a match with Cleland, Lennon takes on Dave Forry and Tillotson plays Greene. For losers in section "B" tonight, it is all over. The winners will advance against the losers from section "A". Draws continues Saturday and Sunday. Oiler chief will return HOUSTON (AP) - Houston. Oiler general manager Sid Gillman, who said at the end of the season he had coached his last game, announced Thursday he had changed his mind and would return as field general of the National Football League club in 1974. "I've told you before from time to time that I wasn't going to do it," Gillman told a news conference, "but I've changed my mind." Gillman said one reason for the turnabout was a petition from a group of Oilers asking him to remain as coach.

Gordie Howe, who played 25 years in the National Hockey League and is in his first season with the World Hockey Association, is an excellent example. So are Ralph Backstrom and playing-coach Pat Stapleton, both of Chicago Cougars, although they might be considered youngsters, when comparing them with' Howe. Howe, 45-year-old right winger, playing on the same line with his 18-year-old son Mark and. 25-year-old Jim Sherritt, scored his 800th regular-season goal Thursday night to help Houston Aeros defeat Vancouver Blazers 7-4. In the other WHA game, the 37-year-old Backstrom scored twice and Stapleton, 33, got a goal and two assists in leading the Cougars to a 5-2 triumph over New England Whalers. Howe, who scored 786 goals in league play and 67 in playoffs for the NHL Detroit Red Wings, increased his over-all career total to 867, best in pro hockey. He signed a reported four-year, million-dollar contract with the Aeros, while Mark and his other son - 19-year-old Marty, who plays defence - inked pacts for $100,000 apiece for four years. Howe, still the holder of numerous NHL records, has 1,304 points including 1,157, assists in his career. His last season as a player was in 1970-71 before he joined the Wings as an executive.

KEN K0TKA8  RICK KUCHERAN  BOB HOBBS  ART BOURNE 329-7th St. 8. (Qunamlth) GORDIE HOWE Success ended quickly POMPANO BEACH, Fla. (AP) - Success seemed certain for Duane Doel in 1970 when University of Florida football coach poug Dickey called him his No. 1 fullback. A newspaper voted him Broward County's Athlete of the Year in 1969 when he played at Plantation High School near Fort Lauderdale. He passed up a chance to play professional baseball to attend university on a football scholarship. Doel died this week in the crash of an airplane loaded with an estimated two tons of marijuana. He was 23. When he decided to go to university, Doel said: "One night,. you've got everything-all the doors are open. The next, your choices are right there and you have to decide, and there's not much time." His high school coach, Bob Gillette, said he thinks Doel must have come into contact with drugs at university. "I'm having to assume an awful lot, but the idea of big money and easy money draws a lot of people into it," Gillette said. Doel left the university in 1971 after losing his scholarship for poor grades. He enrolled at Santa Fe Junior College to become eligible to play again, but coaches at the university never heard from him. Police identified him as one of three men who died Monday in the crash. The others were pilot James Ryan Tennant, 30, of Gainesville, Fla., and Stephen Douglas Musus, 23, a University of Florida senior from Boca Raton, Fla. John Doel, a trucking company operator, said his son told him he was working for a Bahamian fishing company which flew fish to New York City twice a month. The crash is being investigated by federal narcotics and aviation authorities. Gordie also assisted on two goals by son Mark, his 20th and 21st of the season, as the Aeros won their fifth straight and increased their first-place lead in the West Division to six points over Edmonton Oilers and Winnipeg Jets. Father Howe now has 57 points this season - 14 goals and 43 assists - for fourth place in the scoring race. He wound up with 52 points in his last season with the Wings. Gordie got his 800th goal at 5:46 of the first period to give the Aeros a 1-0 lead. Don Burgess - his first of two - and Ed Hatoum scoried to put the Blazers ahead but Mark Howe's goal at 16:18 tied the count before Bryan Campbell made it 3-2 for Vancouver at 19:29, The Aeros scored two unanswered goals in the second period and outscored the Blazers 3-1 in the final 20 minutes for their 24th win in 41 games. Larry Lund also fired two goals for the Aeros with John Schella, Andre Hinse and Sherritt getting the others before 3,247 Houston fans. The Cougars, leading 2-1 after the first period, scored three unanswered goals in the second and on the way to their 18th win of the season. The victory gave the fifth-place Cougars 39 points, four behind Quebec Nordiques in the East Division. The Whalers still lead the race with 52 points, four more than Toronto Toros. Backstrom, who spent 16 seasons in the NHL with Montreal Canadiens, Los Angeles Kings and Chicago Black Hawks, scored twice in the second period to give him Soccer players innocent ATHENS (AP) - The Greek government said Thursday an inquiry has proved none of its soccer players or team officials were bribed in the controversial 4-2 loss to the Yugoslav national team Dec. 19. The win kept alive Yugoslavia's hopes of qualifying for the final round of the World Cup. The Yugoslavs meet Spain in a playoff Feb. 13 in West Germany. The Greek government announced after the match it had named a five-member committee to investigate the team's poor performance and reports of bribery. "The findings of the committee showed that there was no specific responsibility that could be placed on any player, -official or other person," the statement said. "The findings proved that all players tried to win with all their powers, but they were faced with a superior and well-prepared opponent." The Greek government said the International Soccer Federation (FIFA) had demanded it be informed of the result 'of the inquiry. 17 goals in his first WHA campaign. Stapleton, a 10-year NHL veteran on defence for the Hawks and Boston Bruins, got his fifth goal of the year in the first period. He also assisted on a goal by Duke Harris and one by Backstrom to raise his points total to 32, including 27 assists. Rick Morris scored the other Chicago goal, while Tim Sheehy and Tom Webster, his 27th, replied for the Whalers before 4,174 fans in Boston. NEW YORK (AP) - Plans for a decisive extra round in case of a draw were announced Thursday for the return bout at Madison Square Garden Jan. 28 between former heavyweight champions Muhammad All and Joe Frazier. "We are making the request to Ed Dooley, head of the New York State Athletic Commission," said John Condon, representing the Garden. "If the fight is a draw after 12 rounds, we are asking that a 13th round be fought to determine a winner-or as many rounds as necessary." The statement was made at a luncheon for the two title contenders. Frazier won the first meeting when both went into the ring with unbeaten records. The two fighters used the luncheon to verbally square off and even sheds their jackets, pretending they were prepared to settle the issue right there. John Condon, Garden publicist, announced the fight is already a 20,000 sellout with a $1 million live gate. Bob Arum, head of Top Rank, Inc., co-sponsor of the bout, said the fight will be Taber Pats drop Sons The Palace Pats rifled in four goals in the second period and skated to a 6-3 victory over the Lethbridge Native Sons in a Central Alberta Junior Hockey League game staged in Taber Wednesday night. The two clubs had battled to a scoreless first period but the hosts out-scored the Sons 4-1 in the middle frame to earn the win. Neil Goruk led the Pats' attack with a hat-trick while singles went to Mark Fritz, Ian Cole and Don Renner. Glen Scheibner, Piero Lavorato and Gary Craik replied for the Sons. Stacy Marriott turned aside 32 shots in the Pats' nets while John McLaughlin kicked out 36 for Lethbridge. shown in every part of the world and will "be seen by one bilUon people." The first battle between the two fighters, March 8, 1971, was reported to have grossed 120 million, with each fighter receiving ^.5 million. Frazier won a 15-round decision but took a considerable beating in the process. All suffered a broken jaw. Frazier subsequently lost his title early last year to George Foreman. Ali lost to Ken Norton last March but came back in September to redeem the defeat. "I hope you got your jaw wired this time," said Frazier. "My jaw's okay," replied Ali. "I got to make this fight quick because of the energy crisis." Thursday was All's 32nd birthday while Frazier turned 30 last Saturday. Bowling scores CAPRI BOWL TUE8. MORN.
