The proceeds will go to assist the minor hockey program in Lethbridge. Meanwhile the 53 teams registered in the LMHA will see action all through the week with some 61 games on tap. The number of teams in their respective divisions include 14 pee wee teams with players 10-11 years old; 16 bantam B teams ages running from 12-13; eight bantam A clubs with players ages between 13-14; eight midget clubs having players 15-16 years of age; and seven rep teams. For the first time in the LMHA's 19-year history, the pee wee, bantam and midget teams are also playing interlocking games with clubs from Coaldale and Fort Macleod.

In a Midget contest Wednesday night, the Lakers scored a 5-2 victory over the Coaldale Crusaders. couver collected a top score of 63.18 on her final dive to take third place. Two more Canadians, Gail Amundrud of Ottawa and Judy Wright of Vancouver, were silver and bronze medallists behind favored Sonya Gray of Australia in the 100-metre freestyle, with Anne Jardin of Pointe Claire, Que., finishing fourth. All four were clocked in times of less than one minute, a feat accomplished by no Canadian girl until Miss Amundrud recorded 59.9 seconds last summer. Miss Gray, a 14-year-old member of Australia's new generation of speedsters, won the race in 59.13, a shade, slower than the Games record of 59.07 she set in her heat earlier in the day. Miss Amundrud, 59.36, and Miss Wright, 59.46, also eclipsed the 1962 mark of 59.5 set by Dawn Fraser of Australia. Miss Jardin's fourth-place time was 59.85. The Canadians took a second gold medal in the men's 400-metre freestyle relay, won by Bruce Robertson and Ian MacKenzie of Vancouver, Gary MacDonald of Mission, B.C., and Brian Phillips of Winnipeg. Almost simultaneously with the relay's triumph over Aus- tralia and England, the first non-aquatic Canadian medal was won by bantam-weight weightlifter Yves Carignan of Montreal, who placed second behind Michael Adams of Aus- tralia. England also picked up two gold medals, won by fly- weight weightlifter Precious McKenzie and hammer- thrower Ian Chipchase. The three-country monopoly was broken on the track by Mary Peters of Northern Ire- land, a repeat winner in the pentathlon, and Dick Tayler of New Zealand in the metres. Tayler's victory, enthusiastically greeted by of his countrymen, ranked as the upset of the day. David Bedford, who holds the world record for the distance, had set a blistering pace before being worn down by a series of shoving matches with three Kenyan runners on the corners. Tayler and David Black fin- ished off Bedford with three laps to go and the New Zea- lander pulled away on the final bend to win in the Games record time of 27 minutes 46.4 seconds. Bedford finished fourth, just ahead of Dan Shaughnessy of Toronto, with both being given identical times of Diane Jones of Saskatoon, rated second in the Com- monwealth behind Miss Peters in the pentathlon, was unable to shake off the effects of an ankle injury that interrupted her training for several weeks late last year. She pulled into second place after three events but lost ground in the last two, finally dropping to sixth. "I got the cast off my ankle in November and haven't done any hurdling or jumping until this Miss Jones said. "The ankle I tore the ligaments playing the one I take off on in the high jump."

"I hope the public in Atlanta and Cincinnati realize that if I had my wish, I would prefer to hit 714 and 715 in Atlanta which is my Aaron said Thursday in an interview. "If I hit a homer in the opener, I'll sit out the next two games there. If I don't, I'll probably play in the second game and if I hit a homer in this one, I'll sit out the third game. "But there is a matter of integrity involved, he said, adding if Cincinnati were to win the western division by one game, his failure to appear in the opening series might raise some questions. The Braves open in Cincinnati April 4 and after an open date, play the Reds April Butterfield from the world of professional rodeo; Dr. Gary Bowie of the University of Lethbridge and Harold Os- mond of the Lethbridge Minor Hockey Association. A highlight of each year's dinner is the presentation of the athletic awards, both to individual performers as well as groups. Also on the agenda is the awarding of the Percy Butler memorial trophy to the LDS member contributing freely of his times and efforts to further the outstanding athletic standards maintained each year by LDS youth. A press conference is set for two o'clock Saturday afternoon at the Park Plaza Motor Hotel.
