Violini led the gals with an outstanding while Rempel finished the day just, three pins ahead of Reg Ar- nold in men's competition. Another eight games are set for Capri Bowl this coming Sunday and the top 29 men and 11 women will then advance to the Southern Alberta zone final set for Lethbridge Feb. 1 and 2. Violini has a 76 pin advan- tage over Linda Malcomson. Violini hit for games of 290, 270, 339, 306, .308, 285, 233 and 188. Malcomson, on the other hand, rolled games of 242, 263, 250, 295, 326 and 280. Jean Christie was third at as she hit for a high game of 376. A 313 helped Sandra Hunt finish fourth with a while Isobel Bergman rolled helped by a high game of 299. Eleanor Dorigatti rounded out the first six women with an 1.868 and a high of 274. Rempel, despite an almost disastrous start that saw him roll just a 152, came on strong for a total just enough to fight off the challenge of Ar- nold. Rempel's other games in- cluded 304, 231, 319, 305, 317, 244 and 260. Arnold, meanwhile, hit for 284, 314, Lanier retiring MIAMI (AP) It will be the last game for veteran linebacker Willie Lanier and perhaps the last National Football League appearance for a half dozen other stars in tonight's 25th Pro Bowl. The game, the final gasp of a long season, matches all- star teams of the American and National Conferences in the Orange Bowl at 7 p.m. MST. Lanier, a 29-year-old defen- sive giant with Kansas City Chiefs, is quitting to take an executive position with a tobacco company. "In this game, you play by instinct and you play for said the 245-pound Lanier. "I will be trying to bow out in style." Another star who may be playing for the last time is Paul Warfield, 31, ace receiver with Miami Dolphins and ah 11-year veteran in the league. "I have always wanted to go into Warfield said. "If the World Football League doesn't pan out, I may make the jump." Cardston takes own tournament CARDSTON (Special) The host Cardston Cougars took a narrow 54 53 decision from the Raymond Comets Saturday night in the cham- pionship game of the Cardston Invitational High School Basketball Tournament. Don Yuill piled up 20 points for the winners while Rod Beazer added 15. Jeff Hill, who was selected as the MVP of the tour- nament's A division, hooped 22 points for Raymond while Robert Heggie chipped in with 15. In the consolation match, Magrath Zeniths got 10 points from Don Mehew as they bested Winston 'Churchill Bulldogs 43 39 in another close game. Perry Mirkovich paced the Bulldog attack with 18 points. Selected to the All Star team with Hill were Mirkovich, Yuill, Beazer, and Mehew. In the junior varsity division of the tournament, Raymond turned the tables on Cardston as the Mustangs dumped the host Wildcats 59 45. David Williams, selected the tournament's MVP, had 16 points to pace the Raymond attack. Lance Bevin had an equal number for Cardston while Ron Secreton added 10. In the consolation contest, Magrath Eagles got 11 points apiece from Randy Haynes and Paul Wolsey as they edg- ed Winston Churchill Mastiffs 42 40. Ed Parker notched 16 points in a losing cause while Don Wilson added 10.

LCC club dominates tourney Lethbridge Community College Badminton Club became the first team in the history of ACAC competition to win four individual titles as well as the team cham- pionship at a badminton tour- nament. The LCC club travelled to Olds over the weekend and captured all the events except the men's doubles, where they ended up third. They won 17 of 20 matches. Vivian Giese and Robbyn Mintenko won the women's doubles competition while Pam Davison and Brian Popowich took the mixed doubles. The women's singles went to Sharon Davies and the men's singles was won by Harley Leppard. Teams from Olds, Red Deer, Grande Prairie, NAIT, and Mount Royal were also competing. The next tournament for the LCC club will be Saturday when they will be hosting their annual tourney. Allison triumphs RIVERSIDE, Calif. (AP) Bobby Allison, driving the only Matador in the race, turned the Western 500 into a one-man show Sunday, easily out-distancing David Pearson to capture the opener of the 1975 stock car series. Allison also captured the finale of the 1974 series at nearby Ontario Speedway, a victory tainted by charges of cheating. This time he declared the legality of his car and took command. At the conclusion, Allison and Pearson were the only drivers on the same lap. Cecil Gordon of Horse Shoe, N.C., finished third, a full lap behind and others were seven or more laps back of them. Richard Petty, the 1974 series champion, hit a wall early and lost seven laps. STAMPEDE WRESTLING Exhibition Pavilion TONIGHT! P.M. Ktaf Cwtfe 4 Mi OHM n Uwh ft I. Krty TwhM n F. Mr. IMwu CHWv Rmlnz n Mmi MfN n In) TtarMM n Mr. MM ALVIN MILLS CONNECTS WITH A PUNCH TO NORBERT BEARCHIEPS HEAD Two Southern Alberta boxers qualify for Winter Games team By GARRY ALLISON Herald Sports Writer Two boxers from the Blood Indian Reserve, Hugh Calf Robe and Alvin Mills, were the only Southern Albertans to qualify for the 11 man boxing team that will represent Alberta at the Canada Winter Games. The boys qualified for the team at a box off, open to all Alberta amateur boxers, held at the Lethbridge Collegiate Auditorium Saturday night. Mills earned his position on the team via a decision over Norbert Bearchief of Calgary in the 105 pound class. Calf Robe did it the easy way as he had no competition in the 156 pound division and became an automatic champion. The other nine members of the team include Brad Hortie of Edmonton in the 112 pound class; Frank Pruden, Edmonton, 119 pounds; Gary Larson, Edmonton, 126 pounds; Rick Clark, Ed- monton, 132 pounds; Mike Young, Edmonton 139 pounds; Randy' Jackson, Edmonton, 147 pounds; Calf Robe 156 pounds; Ray Duperon, Pembina, 165 pounds; Gordon DeBetour, Rocky Mountain House, 178 pounds; and Stan Dingman, Rocky Moun- tain House, heavyweight. Over 800 fans took in the boxing card, that featured six championship bouts and three exhibitions. While there was only one boxer entered in five of the weight classes there were three boxers entered in five other classes, and elimination bouts had to be run off during a special after- noon card. The most impressive win of the night was in the final bout of the evening when Mike Young stopped Lloyd Belair of Ed- monton in the opening round of the 139 pound final. Young, who had gained the final by stopping Lethbridge's Conrad Sincennes in the first round on the afternoon card, dis- played an awesome right hook. He caught Belair high on the forehead, and despite the area of the punch and the fact that it hit the headgear, Belair still went down like the proverbial ton of bricks. Mills' win over Bearchief was a unanimous decision that saw the Calgary battler bleeding from the nose throughout the final round. Bearchief had taken an afternoon split decision over Doug Harstad of Breton, earning his way into the final. Gary Larson's win over Andy Stump of the Blood Reserve was an extremely unpopular one. Stump carried the fight to Larson, who fought out of a protective shell throughout the final two rounds. Two of the five judges saw the fight in favor of Stump while the remainder felt Larson had won the bout. The fans seemed to feel that the aggressiveness of Stump was enough to earn the decision, but the judges felt otherwise. Larson had won a bout in the afternoon over Brent Kinsella of Edmonton. Bert Lowes, a well known international boxing official from Vancouver who was conducting an officials clinic prior to the boxing card, said that he felt the bout between Stump and Larson was badly handled by the referee. He indicated that while he felt neither boy was a world beater, the wrong one got the nod. Lethbridge 112 pounder Mike O'Brigewitch was the only local fighter on the final card and he dropped a close decision to Brad Hortie. While the crowd was obviously sympathetic towards O'Brigewitch, Hortie was the better of the two boys, but not by much. Hortie was on the final after a win over Edmonton's Riel Webb on the afternoon card. The other Lethbridge boxers who had designs on making the Games' team came away disappointed for varying reasons. Conrad Sincennes was beaten in the afternoon bout by the firey Young, while his brother Norman was two pounds overweight for the 119 pound class and could not move into the 126 pound bracket because of his age. He was one year too young to be 126 pounds. Charlie Pronga had the same problem, age. He was to old for his age class and therefore was not allowed to box. Frank Pruden was an easy victor over Curtis Calf Robe of the Blood Reserve as the referee stopped the contest in the first round rather than see Calf Robe absorb any unnecessary punishment from Pruden. Calf Robe reached the final by defeating Mike Karry of Calgary on the afternoon card. Rick Clark gained his 132 pound title by defeating Kelly Stannard of Breton in a rousing semi windup bout which had the fans up and hollering at the final bell. There were three exhibition bouts on the Saturday night card. Jimmy McDonald of Calgary gained the nod over Larry Beneski, also of Calgary, in a 70 pound fight. In another 70 pound tussle Duane Hartley of Calgary decisioned another Calgary boy, Melvin Ing. Eddie Blanche of the Calgary Renfro Club took a decision over Norman Sincennes of Lethbridge in a 126 pound bout that could have gone either way. Jackson, Duperon, DeBetour and Dingman joined Hugh Calf Robe as champions without haying to fight. The officials at the fight card were the men who were tak- ing the special clinic set up to upgrade and familiarize major and minor officials with a boxing card prior to the Winter Games boxing event. SHORT JABS... one improvement for the Games will have to be a more adequate sound system... the fuzzy sound did not help the presentation Eric Quinton and Greg Strong did the best they could with the public address system... in fact Strong even practiced his French for the upcoming Games Bert Lowes and Al Tummon of Toronto were instructors at the clinic among the large crowd was former Alberta featherweight champion Max Gibb his advice, shouted up to a number of district boxers, didn't seem to help them too much Young looks like a sure fire pick to win a Gold Medal at the Games for Alberta Jackson could also be in the medals, but the Lethbridge people didn't get a chance to see him fight. The Games boxing takes place at Claresholm Feb. 18 and 19 and in Lethbridge Feb. 21 and 22. Hot shooting kills Pronghorns VICTORIA (Special) For the second straight night, the University of Victoria Vikings came up with a superb shooting performance as they rolled to an 85 71 triumph over University of Lethbridge Pronghorns Saturday. Friday night, the Vikings shot 59% from the floor in a 93 54 Canada West University Athletic Association win over1 the Pronghorns. On Saturday, the first place Victoria club clicked on 54% of their attempts. Dave Mulcahy paced the Vikings with 21 points while Jim Duddridge contributed 18 points and pulled in eight rebounds. Lome Dakin chipped in with' eight points and grabbed 13 rebounds for the hosts, who out boarded the locals 43 33 oyer the contest. Rookie guard Richard Foggo resumed his place at the top of the Pronghorn scor- ing list after being hampered with an ankle injury for two weeks. He collected 21 points while Phil Letham hooped 15 and Joey Shackleford added 13. The Vikings, who led 47 34 at the half, have now won 10 straight games after two narrow losses in Edmonton to the University of Alberta Golden Bears on the first weekend of the season. The University of Victoria Vikettes made it a clean sweep for the Coast clubs as they dumped the U of L Pronghorns 65-54. Edna Ritchie led the host team with 16 points and 12 rebounds. Lorna McHattie added 12 points, while Marga Mainwaring contributed 10. Georgina Lester topped the Pronghorns with 20 points and Lori Lilja Was next in line with 10. The Vikettes, who never let the Pronghorns get closer than six points, were ahead 34 26 at halftime. Both Victoria clubs are now atop the Canada West stam dings with 20 points, although they have two games in hand over their nearest rivals. The Vikings lead Alberta Golden Bears by six points, while the Vikettes are two points up on UBC Thunderettes. In Edmonton, the Universi- ty of Alberta Golden Bears gained a measure of revenge Saturday night, but only by the narrowest of margins. The of Calgary Dinosaurs had stunned the se- cond place Bears 60 44 Fri- day night, and Saturday the Dinos took the Bears into overtime before succumbing by a 57 56 score. The Bears led 25 21 at half- time, and the teams were tied 50 50 at the end of regulation time. Dan Court clicked on one of two foul shots at of the five minute extra period to give Alberta a 57 54 advan- tage before Bruce Wright came back with a basket for Calgary with just three seconds left. Calgary's Pat Lee was the game's leading scorer with 26 points, 18 in the second half. Dan Court led a balanced Alberta attack with nine. Alberta is now 7 3 in Canada West play while Calgary is 5 5. In Vancouver, .UBC Thunderbirds took an 89 77 come from behind victory from University of Saskatchewan Huskies. Saskatchewan led 43 39 at the half. Ralph Turner scored 23 points to pace the T Birds while Roger Gahes was tops .for the Huskies with 28 points. UBC now sports a 6 4 record while Saskatoon is 2 8. In women's action, UBC Thunderettes thumped Saskatchewan Huskiettes 68 J6 and Alberta Pandas defeated Calgary Dinnies 47 37.. Carol Turney led UBC scorers with 23 points while Teri Duke paced the Huskietlcs with 12. LETHBRIDQE OFFICE FURNITURE LTD. lowr Lntl 7th SbMt Ihopplnf Mill LHkbrnin.AI.w1i PkoM (403) 328-7411 S.C.M. TYPEWRITERS Davis, Brown settle nothing Lyle Davis and Dan Brown are all set for a showdown this evening to decide just who will represent this zone in the Southern Alberta men's curling finals in Lethbridge this coming weekend. Davis and Brown had all weekend to settle the issue but could not come up with anything better than a win and a loss each. Brown, a left-handed shotmaker, wrapped up the A section title Saturday night with some excellent clutch play. He surviv- ed a strong challenge from the favored Davis rink to win in 13 ends. Sunday, however, Davis earned another crack at Brown as he won the B section honors. Needing just a win to advance to the south final Brown came up short in his bid and will now try to settle matters tonight at the curling club at seven. A total of 15 rinks opened play in the playdown last Friday. Meanwhile, Hec Gervais of St. Albert, defending Canadian men's curling champion, was defeated in the Edmonton open curling championships Sunday and eliminated from further provincial playoffs to determine Alberta's representative in the national championship. Gervais, two time national champion and world champion in 1961, was defeated 6-4 in the semi-finals of the A event by Rick Cust. He dropped to the B event and was sidelined 10-7 by Bill Mitchell, his third at the 1970 Canadian final. Gervais, who has represented Alberta three times in the national finals, missed his last rock against Mitchell on an open takeout and stay. He was light and wrecked on a guard.
