Lethbridge Herald (Newspaper) - January 20, 1971, Lethbridge, Alberta S - THE IETHBRIDGE HERALD - Wednesday, January 20, 1971 Douglas loses once Four rinks unbeaten as south final opens ANDY CAPP By PAT SULLIVAN Herald Sports Writer Four rinks emerged with unblemished marks Tuesday as the Southern Alberta women's playdowns got under way at the Lethbridge Curling Club. Fifteen rinks from various parts of the province, from Red Deer south, opened play Tuesday in a bid for the berth in the Alberta finals set for Calgary Feb. 1, 2 and 3. Action commenced this morning at 10 with other draws set for 2 p.m. and 6 p.m. The finals will be run off Thursday afternoon. Polly Beaton, a veteran of Maple Leafs pound Movers EDMONTON (CP)-Edmon-ton Maple Leafs peppered Edmonton Movers net with a shot a minute as they scored a 10-2 victory in the Alberta Junior Hockey League Tuesday. Brian Banks was kept busy in the Movers net as 60 shots were directed at him. Renee Alain made 26 saves' for the Maple Leafs. The Maple Leafs took a 5-0 first-period lead on goals by Curtis Shokopeles, Craig Styles Dale Bowler, Rick Nornden and Phil Blake. The second period saw the Movers hit the scoreboard with SKIP, THIRD TALK IT OVER - Norma Douglas, standing left, and Irene Lindsay talk over Douglas' next shot in second round game Tuesday. Douglas, of Lethbridge, and her mates dropped their second game in the Southern Alberta women's playdown 8-5 to Beatrice Mayer, in foreground, of Calga ry. Play continues today and Thursday at the Lethbridge Curling Club. Suspended team claims racial discrimination MOOSE JAW (CP) - The coach of a native hockey team which was suspended indefinitely Tuesday for taking part in a wild fight says discrimination was responsible for the melee. "They called us black savages and shouted 'go back to the reservation,' " said Fred Starr, coach of Regina Natives of Saskatchewan's Potash Hockey League. "Sure there was a fight. It was only natural considering what the other team had done. But the referee failed to take this into consideration in making his report." Jim Graham, president of the Saskatchewan Amateur Hockey Association, suspended the whole team for the melee in a league game Jan. 11 between the Natives and an Interprovin- cial Steel Co. team from Regina. The referee's report on the gome said Starr received a match misconduct when he clubbed Darwin Bennett of the Steel Co. team over the head with a stick after the game. Starr said Tuesday in an interview that he did not hit anyone with a stick. He said he went on the ice at the end of the game after the fight started. A player from the other team pointed Ms finger at Starr and called him a name, the coach said. "I plowed him with my fist. "At no time did I carry a stick. Coaches don't carry slicks." Starr said there was so much confusion the referee probably did not have a chance to survey the action properly. A decision on whether the suspension of the team will remain in effect is to be made at a meeting in Regina Saturday. The Regina referees' association, which has refused to officiate at further Native games, will also attend. Two members of the Steel Co. team were taken to hospital after the game, one with a broken jaw and the other with a head gash that required several stitches. World record NEW YORK (AP) - Herve Fiiion of Angers, Que., won a world record 486 races in 1970 and also led all North American drivers with $1,647,837 earned, according to official United States Trotting Association statistics released Tuesday. Robinson misses ball WASHINGTON (AP) -World Series hero Brooks Robinson of Baltimore Orioles fielded everything hit to him by Cincinnati Reds in the World Series, but he couldn't handle a toss from Martha Mitchell Tuesday night. Mrs. Mitchell, wife of Attorney-General John Mitchell, presented Robinson with one of the major awards of the annual Washington Baseball Writers' dinner. Before she did, however, Mrs. Mitchell told Robinson: "My dear, darling, adorable, cuddly husband presented me with an American League baseball and told me not to come home unless I got it signed by Brooks." With that, she tossed the ball in the direction of Robinson who was 10 feet away, but it sailed high over the third baseman's head and he couldn't field it. His face reddened as he retrieved the ball. Mrs. Mitchell then gave him the award as baseball writers' choice as the American League's Most Valuable Player. clearance sale BUYRITE'S JANUARY Continues With Sensational Savings Throughout The Store MEN'S SUITS Regulars and tall models.

Leafs weren't ready TORONTO (CP) - Coach Johnny McLellan was preparing his Toronto Maple Leafs for tonight's game against Vancouver Canucks but his mind was more on last Sunday's game in Bos ton. "I was really looking forward to that game," said McLellan whose team beat Los Angeles Kings 8-1 here Saturday before going to ' Boston where the Bruins beat them 9-1. "People had been saying we hadn't played anybody good," the coach said after a team practice Monday. "I thought after we beat L.A. that we'd be up for them, and that's why I was looking forward to playing the game. And then we just came up flat." The 9-1 loss, however, "might be the best thing that could happen" to the team, McLellan said. "He said he thought the Leafs' winning of several recent games by wide margins had left some of the players thinking they are "a bunch of fancy Dans-all skating and scoring and no hitting or checking." McLellan said he couldn't blame goalie Bruce Gamble for the loss in Boston. GOALIE NOT AT FAULT "It definitely was no fault of Gamble. It would have been the same no matter who was in the nets. We weren't checking and they were all over us. It was terrible. "And when you get beaten like that, people forget your previous record." The Leafs had won 14 and tied two of their previous 18 games. McLellan's use of Gamble Sunday indicates he was saving Jacqu"' Plante for goaltending duties against Vancouver tonight. Elsewhere in NHL action tonight, Philadelphia lyers meet the Rangers in New York and Pittsburgh Penguins visit California Seals. many southern Alberta play-downs, of Medicine Hat, Dorothy Dixon of Innisfail, Pauline Hougen of Foremost and Beatrice Mayer of Calgary, skipped their respective rinks to the four's of the "A" section of the playdown. The three-day event is a double-knockout, A and B section playoff. The "B" winner will have to defeat the A champion twice Thursday in order to advance to the provincial final: Beaton made things look easy Tuesday and was all smiles after two convincing wins. She opened play in the mor ning with a one-sided 154 win over Annie Allen of Red Deer. A stop for dinner didn't cool her hot hand as she came right back and belted Darlene Borden of Calgary 14-3. Dixon got off to a flying start bouncing Marian Bateman of Calgary 14-9 Tuesday morning and then advanced to the semifinal against Beaton with a 9-5 win over Muriel James of Gleichen in the day's second draw. Hougen look full measure of another Calgary foursome in her first game. The Foremost skip was sharp as she dropped Joan Richardson into the "B" division with a 12-2 trouncing. Hougen followed up with a 9-5 triumph over Evelyn Lute of Pincher Creek. Norman Douglas, of the host Lethbridge Club, came out of the first round with a 9-6 win over Dode Warwick of Hanna but was stopped 8-5 by Beatrice Mayer in the second game. Mayer had received a bye into the second round because there was no representative from district 6. Douglas will have to win all her remaining games if she is to gain a berth in the final But coming back is nothing new to the popular Lethbridge shotmaker. In advancing to the southern final Douglas had to come from the B division and defeat Millie Snowden in the Lethbridge final twice to reach the current playdown. In other games in the second round three rinks were elimin a ted from further play. Allen sidelined Shirley Peat field of Banff 8-7 while Watson was ousted 13-11 by Bateman. A 9-8 setback at the hands of Richardson sent Ashmore packing. In the semi-finals this morning Beaton was to match shots with Dixon while Hougen met Mayer. Douglas played Bateman, Allen tangled with Lutz, Richardson and Borden met head on and Warwick, who received the second round bye, faced James.

No foul play in death of Liston LAS VEGAS, Nev. (AP) -Charles (Sonny) Liston, former heavyweight boxing champion, died from natural causes, but traces of narcotics were found in body tissues, a Clark County coroner's report said Tuesday, The report said Liston, found dead in the bedroom of his $GO,000 split-level home here Jan. 6, died from poor oxygen to heart muscles caused partially by heart circulation problems. But the coroner, Dr. Mark Herman, said traces of codeine and morphine were found in the former champion's body tissues and that scar tissue, possibly from needle marks, was found in the bend of the left elbow. Police had said a quarter' ounce of heroin was found in a balloon in Liston's kitchen, plus a small quantity of marijuana. tergood 264 (712), Alex Koplar 27( (700), Graham Scattergood 220 (652), Karl Phlllpp 231 (622), Guy Clote 310 (616), Sandy Scattergood 301 (714).
