(AP) St. Louis police have withheld comment on a department memoran- dum outlining a young woman's allegations that she took part in a ring supplying drugs to players in the National Football League. St. Louis radio station KMOX said Tuesday it had obtained a copy of the memorandum from a law enforcement of- ficial. Police would say only that the 19-year-old woman "is confined." They declined to .discuss the case further. The KMOX copy of the report said Roxie Ann Rice told of her ac- tivities while she was being questioned about her alleged use of a credit card stolen from defensive back Ken Houston of Washington Redskins. She was arrested Jan. 4 on fraud charges. Among the NFL teams mentioned in the report were Houston Oilers, St. Louis Car- dinals, San Diego Chargers, Detroit Lions, Kansas City Chiefs, Cincinnati Bengals and the Redskins. NFL executive direc- tor Jim Kensil said only that "there's nothing in what she has said that has been substantiated in any way." A spokesman for the Cardinals said the team had informed the NFL security division of the report but denied any knowledge of Miss Rice's activities. Of- ficials of the other NFL teams named in the memorandum either declined comment because they knew nothing of the allegations or were un- available for comment. College's rodeo school will be part of Games Rodeo will be part of the Canada Winter Games Western Hospitality theme Feb. 14 to 22. The rodeo will be a jackpot affair, Wednesday, Feb. 19, and will be the concluding event at the Lethbridge Community College's Rodeo School at the Exhibition Pavilion. The LCC Rodeo Club, in conjunction with the Canada Winter Games, will be presenting the School from Feb. 14-22. The five major rodeo events, bareback and saddle bronc bull riding, calf roping and steer wrestling, will be included in the school along with team roping. Top rodeo stock will be provided to accommodate both the beginning rider and the more advanced pupil. The school, which will be open for the athletes at the Winter Games to watch, has an entry deadline of Feb. 7th. All interested persons may apply for entry into the school but preference will be given to CIRA members; Instructors for the school will be Len Thierman in the calf roping; Tom Ivins in the steer wrestling; Laurence and Marlon Draper in the team roping; Brent Thompson in bull riding; Dale Christenson in bareback bronc; and Gene Maynard in saddle bronc. All events will be limited to 20 entries, which breaks down into 10 teams for the team roping. The three timed events will run from the 14-16 of Feb. while the riding events run Feb. 20-22. The timed events cost apiece to enter and the riding apiece. The team roping is a team. An added feature of the school will be the availability of a video tape machine so that each student's performance can be evaluated after its completion. An effort is also being made to obtain an electronic bucking barrel as well. The most improved student in each event will receive a trophy at the conclusion of the school. For many of the athletes competing at the Canada Winter Games the jackpot rodeo at the conclusion of the school will be their first look at a rodeo. It is appropriate that the Winter Games Committee should see fit to present a rodeo as part of its Western Hospitality presentation. After all, nothing is more Western than rodeo. still in it at 46 and because he's the greatest. that ever lived." Howe's goal, one of four in a second-period blitz that gave the. West an insurmountable 6- 2 margin, came on a half- speed backhander that trickl- ed over the line. "I was trying to pass into the said Howe. "I knew it was in when Andy Brown (Eastern goaltender) called me a lucky bleep." The goal gave Howe a bit of an extra kick because he played with Andy's father, forward Adam Brown, early in his pro career. Howe made it clear his last all-star game was something special. He took his stick home. "Sure, it was he said. "It's nice to wind up with one for the road, but the real high- light was to have the kid score one." Mark Howe took a flip pass from his father to open scor- ing in the first period. Forward Mark and defenceman Marty, team- mates with Houston Aeros, gave their father the in- centive to conie back after a one-year layoff at the age of 44. Andre Hinse, also of Houston, had two goals for the West. Bobby Hull of Winnipeg and Ted Taylor of Houston had the others. The' French Connection of Rejean. Houle, Marc Tardif and Serge Bernier handled all the Eastern scoring. Houle, the most valuable player, had two goals and two assists, while Tardif and Bernier had a goal apiece. The three were linemates on Team Canada 74 and now play together with Quebec Nordiques. Houle said he had an easy time because he knew where Bernier and Tardif were at all times. Two Eastern players, winger Tom Webster and defenceman Rick Ley, suf- fered minor injuries. Webster injured a leg in the first period and Ley needed six stitches to close a cheek wound after Paul Popiel's deflected shot felled him. WEST 6 EAST 4 First period: 1. West. Mark Howe (G. Howe.
