Kl* FILINO CABINETS m THIRD SECTIONLethbridge, Alberta, Wedneeday, January 23, 1974 Pages — 23 - 34 Pat Sullivan A big evening planned for Lethhridge's father of hockey ‘Ed Bruchet Appreciation N ight’ set I aaw another reason why it will tw so nice to have the new Sportsplex next year.    _ , . Saturday my wife and I and daughter, along with another couple, travelled to Calgary and took in the Ice Capades. I realize Ice Capades are not the run of the mill sporta story, but I was so impresaed I just had to teU everyone. It has l)een years since I last saw the Ice Capades and I had forgotten just what a splaidid show they put on. I would wait in Une for tickeU to see the show again. * * « You might recall that in a column s«ne time ago I said that a 5.000 seat rink would be great. We could bring in circuses and ice shows. I can haidly wait for the doors to in Novembw. Karen Magnusswi was the star attraction for the Ice Capades and while she was tremendous, a young American skater, named Richard Ewell, was the pe^^’s ^iw. If you’re familiar with Ice Capades yon will know that at the end of each individual or group performance the lights go out so props can be changed and so on.    „ « ^ Long after the lights had dimmed after Ewell had gone through his routine, people were sUU clapping, cheering and whistling. He was that ¿»d. As a matter of fact, I have seen only one skater who I would say is better, Donald Jackson. , ^ Ewell and Jackson are in a class by themselves when it comes to the startling heights th^r can reach. Ewell is the first black to skate in International competition, and it showed. It would be interesting to know just how well he did. The young man Is a brilliant performer. As for Miss Magnusson, her many ywrs of meUculous skating in froot of judges has not worn off- When this attractive young lady learns how to carry an audience she’ll have it made. The people loved her free skating performance, she was flawless. rn be thinking about last Saturday for a long time to come. * • • Another thing I might be thinking about for some time to come is saying yes to big Bill Johnson when he asked me if I would skate in the Kinsmen Club^s Skfitdthon, racc of the year- According to Johnson, who's too big to say no to anyway, yours truly, Leo Harrold, president of the Lethbridge Miror Hockey Association, Brent Seely, Alan BeU P^ibly toy Morton from the Canada Winter Games and possibly V^au^n Hembroff from tbe city, wiU take part along with other celebrities. Morton, because he played pro hockey a few years back, will have a handicap. He has to carry Johnson around the ice on his back, Apparently Rod Draffin (maybe he was under the influence), president of the Kinsmen Club, has issu^ a challenge to everyone to try and beat him in a race. If he loses he will pay dearly at the wrap-up dance Saturday night following the big race and the Skatathon itself. It will take place Saturday, Feb. 2 at Henderson, on the lake, at high noon. Theismann meets Allen By PAT SULUVAN HeraMSpwM Editor It’s been a long time com- i..

A list that would fill tbs page could be made, i)uite easily at that, of the young men who have at one time or another been me of Ed’s boys.

Tbe committee itself is made up of Pete Slobodlan, Na Frig, Wilf-------------- Jodu Tanuva, Jake Milford and George Araene. While railroading was bis worit, his love was hockey. He stepped down from his railway job last fall and is now the QiaiULger of the new 14,000 seat Albumerque Conv«iti«i Centre in New ^fe]dco. Prior to his retirement Bruchet was involved in almost all phases of sport in Lethbridge, working with literally hundreds of men in a care«' that 40 years. Among his interests, other than hockey, was soccer and baseball. In tbe liSO’s Bruchet managed the Lethbridge spinas «4ien they chalked up more than their share of provincial titles. He and the late Joe Tufteland formed tbe Lethbridge Arcades Junior baseball team that produced a number of provincial chatn-iMond^ for tbe city. Hockey, however, was first and foremost to the man known from coast to coast In Canada and throughout hockey circles in tbe United States. Bruchet was a fcunder of tbe Lethbridge Minor Hockey Association during the prewar era, and then, with the assistance of such pe<q>le as Alex Snowden, the fate Mike Hanzel, Russ Millar and others, he founded the Lethbridge Native Sons hockey orguaization. Tbe Native Sons, over the years and under tbe direct guidance of Ed Bruchet, ecame one of the most respected hockey names in Canada. With Bruchet at the lielm the Sons dominated Alberta midget and juvenile hockey circli». A power in western junior competition tbe Sons came close tm two occasions to gaining a berth in the Memorial C^p, emblematic of Canadian junior hockey Tlic Herald' Sports McQuarrie rink hits sidelines Joevenazzo top playmaker WASHINGTON (AP) -Washington Redskin coach George Allen said Tuesday he is considering the possibility of signing on former Notre Dame all-American quarterback Joe Theismann. “We met Tuesday but all it was w^s just a visit," Allen said. "I’m exploring all G ,jssibilities with the position Iquarterback) and he is one of them.” Theismann, whose contract with Toronto Argonauts of the Canadian Football League has expired, is the property of Miami Dolphins. Allen said he received permission from Miami coach Don Shula for the meeting Tuesday. CALGARY (CP) - A pair of veteran centremen are currently tied for the Alberta Junior Hockey League scoring lead, but one is likely to drop out of the running. Terry Wlttchen of Red Deer Rustlers and Roger Mitchell of Dnimheller Falcons each have 68 points at the head of the list of the AJHL snipers. MitcheU, a 17-year-old In his second season with Drumheller, suffered a broken collar bone during we^end play and may be lost for the balance of tbe regular season. He had coUected 29 goals and 39 assists, while Wittchen totalled 32 goals and 36 helpers.    . Brian Sutter, also of Red Deer, c<Hitinues to hold down third place with 29 goals and 34 assists for 63 points. In Drumheller the Rustlers took a slight edge early in the game and held It to the end to defeat Drumheller M Tues- ***Red&r led 2-1 at the end of the first period and 4-3 after 40 minutes. Rod Pimm scored two goals for Red Deer, including the winner at 13:01 of the third. Teammates Teny Wlttchen, Bob Haldane and Earl Switzer each nurked me. Dave Stewart, Grant Pushie, Hon Rose and Jim Bertram were Drumheller snipers. In Calgary the Canucks scored three consecutive goals in the third period to waltz to a 6-2 victory over the Pass Red Devils.

The Lethbridge champion was tbe victim of a lOtb end loss to defending champion Polly Beaton of Medicine Hat in the openiiig round and the loser of a tight M match against Shirley Fo* of Calgary. Beaton, Alberta’s champion in 1972, scored the narrow 6-7 victory oVer McQuarrie by picking up three in the ninth end to tie the game and once again in the 10th for the win.

The three-day championship ends Thursday with the winner advancing to the provincial final at Fort Macleod Feb. 5*7. ___^ lost out to Port Arthur in the 1948 western final and were turned bade again, this time in 1953, by St. TOniface. As was made clear before, the list is almost endless of the young men who received their hockey education from Bruchet. Dozens of players graduated; into various professionalranks after first sampling the. “Bruchet method.” It is the hope of the “Ed Bruchet Appreciation Night”' committee that a good many former players, friends and their wives will be on hand; March 2 at the El Rancho. ■ Tickets for the affair have, been set at f7.50 per person which includes a cocktail party at six o'clock and dinner at seven. A dance will follow. To help In finalizing the; plans for this gala affair and-to help insure the success of; this night to remember for-Bruchet and his friends,; interested parties are urged to be prompt in showing their intentions of attending, Feb. 15th has been set as a; tentative deadline for tickets.^ In writing for tickets or caU-: ing for tickets tbe committee would like to know if yon will, be accompanied by your wife. tickets can be obtained by writing to “Ed Bruchet Appreciation Night,” c/0 Lethbridge Labor (Hub, 207 -13th Street North, area code TIH 2Rfi. Tickets are also available at the Labor Qub, Miners’ Library, El Rancho Motor Hotd or from any com- . mittee member. If the friends of Ed Bruchet, scattered throughout points in Canada and the U.S, respond as the committee feels they will, March 2 will be a memorable night in the life of a man who has pven so freely of himself the past 20 years. Nostalgia, a trip down memory lane, call it what you will. It has been a long time coming.
