Lethbridge Herald (Newspaper) - January 19, 1971, Lethbridge, Alberta 6 - THE LETHBRIDGE HERALD - Tuesday, Jnnuary 19, 1971 THE TWEAKER - Five-month-old Darren Robert 'Utile Slugger7 Tolan got that whiskered feeling as he grabbed the chin of his pop , Cincinnati Reds star outfielder Bobby Tolan at his suburban home Monday. Mom Cheryl joined in the laughter. Tolan is recovering from surgery to repair a ruptured Achilles tendon suffered in a recent basketball game at Frankfort, Ky, with Cincinnati Reds teammates. Tolan will be fitted with a walking cast in two weeks and is expected to miss at least two months of the 1971 season. Scores fhree in rout LeGrandeur shines The University of Lethbridge Chinooks showed no mercy as they blasted the troubled M and K Generals 9-0 in the first of two scheduled City Recreation Hockey League games last night. Meanwhile the St. Basil's and Purity Bottling both added a point to their total as they fought to a 5-5 tie after three periods.

Coach wants new deal Baltimore to enter Plunkett sweepstakes? MIAMI (AP) - Don Mc-Cafferty of Baltimore Colts, the first rookie coach to win the Super Bowl, met with club officials Monday to discuss the team's entry into the Jim Plunkett sweepstakes and his own contract with pro football's1 new champions. "We've been talking to Boston and we will be talking with them again," McCafferty said at the annual winning coach's post-mortem. "The way I feel is that if you have to give up too much for a young quarterback I'm not for it." While niehter he nor other members of the Colts' official hierarchy mentioned Plunkett -By Vat Sullivan SULLY SAYS gWEET Georgia Brown, the Globetrotters are coming to town. To the average layman Sweet Georgia Brown is an old song that was on the charts some years back. To advance man of the 'Trotters, Bobby Milton, who has heard it some 4,500 times, it is music to his ears and has been to nearly 70 million people in 87 countries in every continent in the world. The song, which is a catchy little number when you think about it, is the theme song for the world famous Harlem Globetrotters and will be heard Thursday evening at the Lethbridge Exhibition Pavilion somewhere around eight bells. Yes sir, those same Harlem Globetrotters who played to 75,000 people in Berlin in 1951 . . . the same group of basketball wizards who thrilled 19,500 in Madison Square Garden just this winter. Moving into the 1971 season the 'Trotters have played to well over 67 million people. They hope to surpass the 70 million mark this tour. This is the original Harlem Globetrotter show, the same one that Abe Saperstein put together one chilly night in 1927. The show has changed somewhat in the format, but it still has the same objective, to entertain. The Globetrotters have played before royalty, in a drained swirnming pool, on the deck of an aircraft carrier and Thursday they will put on their own bit of basketball magic at the Pavilion. Basketball, however, isn't the only thing offered when the 'Trotters make the scene. (See the rhythmn in that last sentence? Sort of a da, da, da, da, Sweet Georgia Brown). When the Globetrotters and their opposition take a break for a half time rest, there is no stop in the action. The same momentum that is in the game continues with a half time show, second to none. How about a wrestling bear; or world famous jugglers, or a contortionist that looks like a pretzel with legs? Take your choice, it's all part of the show. What was once a group of fun-loving guys playing the game they loved is no longer the case with the Globetrotters. The love of the game hasn't changed but the popularity of the 'Trotters has brought about some differences. Some of the best basketball talent in the world is part of the Globetrotters. A full iime scout and six part time men recruit the players from various colleges and universities in the United States. It takes a special breed of person to be a 'Trotter. Scouts can be pretty selective when they are only looking for maybe three recruits annually. Over the years some eight or 10 Globetrotters have gone on to play in the National Basketball League after getting their start with the Harlem outfit. The most famous of those is Wilt Chamberlain of the Los Angeles Lakers. At times, over the years, a Globetrotter star or two has decided to branch out on his own. A handful of these teams barnstorm through the country each year but never have they rivalled the 'Trotters. Goose Tatum was one of the better - known 'Trotters to leave the team and start out on his own. At the time of his departure Tatum was reported to be making $65,000 a year. He died in 1967 in poverty. The Trotters, today, are paid on a salary scale which doesn't take a back seat to contracts shelled out in pro basketball in the U.S. Bob (Showboat) Hall, the clown prince of the basketball court, pulls in about $100,000 a year. Not bad, would you say? The Globetrotters seldom lose. Their audiences never lose. It has never been said that the Globetrotters put on a poor show. They are not about to start now. They have too much at stake, these goodwill ambassadors known throughout the world. There is only one Gordie Howe. There is only one Arnold Palmer. Thero is only one Johnny Unitas. And, of course, there is only one Harlem Globetrotter basketball team, a talented collection of magicians who have brought a lot of sunshine into a lot of dark corners. Mixed playoffs The gals took to the Ice (.his morakg as the Southern Alberta women's plavdowns got under way at the Lethbridge Curling Club. Loses right eye TORONTO (CP) - More than 6,000 fans turned out Saturday to raise about $15,000 for a 12-y e a r -o 1 d""hockey player who lost his right eye in a recent hockey accident.

Five rinks from Lethbridge will open play Wednesday at seven o'clock with the winner advancing to the Southern Alberta finals in Fort Macleod Feb. 17, 38 and 19. The Alberta finals are slated for Calgary, Feb. 26 and 27 with the Canadian championships at St. John's New Brunswick, March C-12. Competing will bo Lylc Davis, Bill Karbashowski, Malcolm MacDonald, Wayne McLennan and Al Packard. by name, it is known that Baltimore oovets the tall, talented Stanford quarterback as a prospect to bring along behind their two aging passers-Johnny Unitas and Earl Morrall. In previous talks with Boston Patriots, who have No. 1 selection at next week's draft, the names of tight end John Mackev and tackle Sam Ball are reported to have been mentioned as possible players to be packaged in a deal for the top pick. The Colts are in the enviable position of having two choices In the first round of the. draft- their own and Miami's--and might be willing to part with one of those in addition to the players. McCafferty discussed that situation in a conference with the owner of the Colts, Carroll Ro-senbloom, and general manager Don Klosterman, who played at one time for Calgary Stamped-ers of the Canadian Football League. The Colts have Miami's first-round selection as the result of an award by commissioner Pete Rozelle, who took the choice away from the Dolphins for "tampering" when they lured coach Don Shula from Baltimore. That, of course, led to Mc-Caffertv's selection as head coach this season on a one-year contract. McCafferty said it was news to him that the 36-year-old Morrall had implied after .Sunday's 16-13 Super Bowl victory over Dallas Cowboys that he wanted to be traded, "I don't want to leave this team." Morrall said, "but I want to go where I can play regularly." Morrall sat behind the 37-year-old Unitas for almost the entire season, but was the quarterback of record Sunday when he and the Colts gained redemption for losing to New York Jets in the Super Bowl by beating Dallas on rookie Jim O'Brien's 32-yard field goal with just five seconds remaining. Bills might stay BUFFALO, N.Y. (AP)-Erie County's top administrator says he hopes to meet with a state development official concerning help in constructing a stadium that would keep the National Football League's Buffalo Bills from leaving town. County Executive B. John Turuska commented Monday after conferring for 75 minutes with Bill's owner Ralph C. Wilson Jr. It was their first face-to-face meeting since Wilson announced a week ago that he would move the team unless he received assurance within 60 days that a new stadium would be erected. Wilson followed up the threat by conferring with public officials in Seattle and the head of a Memphis group on invitations to relocate the Bills in their cities. In the past, Wilson has been a strong supporter of an 80,000-soat, open - air stadium as a successor to Buffalo's antiquated, 46,000  seat War Memorial Stadium. In Seattle, King County Executive John Spellman said he had talked with Wilson Monday and received assurances that Wilson still wants to move the National Football League team to Seattle if Buffalo fails to provide a stadium. Spellman made the statement after a meeting of Western Washington business and civic loaders to organize a campaign to attract the professional team. Spellman said Wil-Eon will come to Seattle in about three weeks for fiu-tlier discussion. ANDY CAPP Darts rit La:�ruk. Miners .......�. ..
