Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - January 26, 1972, Lethbridge, Alberta jmv.ry M. 1WJ THI IUHMWOI MHAIO 13 Salt Lake City chief falls to his death MINNEAPOLIS, Minn. (AP) An autopsy was scheduled today for the body of Daniel H. Meyer, president of the Salt Lake club of the Western Hockey League. Meyer, 45, fell 19 stories to his death Tuesday from a room In the RadiMon South Hotel iu sub- urban Bloomington to the roof- top of the hotel swimming authorities said. Meyer was in Bloomington to attend meetings of the Alouettes look for better year MONTREAL (CP) A tall Polynesian bearing the intrigu- ing name of Miki (Junior) Ah You and with the off-field abil- ity to perform the Samoan knife and fire dance, has become the latest cog in Montreal Alouettes' plans for a 1972 Canadian Foot- ball League comeback. Ah You, 23, is a six-foot, two- inch, 220-pound defensive end born in Samoa, a U.S. posses- sion, but wlio played his college football well enough to become a three-time Western Athletic Conference all-star at Arizona Stale University. With Hie self-proclaimed "best minor league quarterback in the U.S." already in the fold Lyles makes up slogan for Idds LOUISVILLE, Ky. (AP) A sign over the desk of Lenny Lyles, former Baltimore Colts defensive halfback, shows a black hand and white hand clasped together and reads: "What will you bility, unity, understanding and progress." Lyles, 35, created the slogan and had it made up in the drafting department of a to- bacco firm where he is train- ing co-ordinator for peo- ple. Words like those mean a lot to Lyles, a product of the Louisville ghetto who grew up with rats, roaches and crime. Now more than ever, the man who played 10 years with the National Football League Colts is trying to instill these qualities in others, mainly kids. Last year he spoke three rugi.ts a week at high schools, youth correctional homes, lit- tle league functions, churches and settlement houses. TELLS OP IIIS LIFE He shows films of his Colts' days, tosses footballs with youngsters on the block, takes them to ball games and tells them about his life. "I try and call on experi- ence and what has helped he says. "I say to them, 'Don't steal.' "Because I stole and be- cause my father wasn't there, I can identify with kids like Mhis. I can understand their problems, frustrations and anxieties first hand." Lyles was named one of the 10 most outstanding men in America in 1971 by the U.S. Jaycees. The silver trophy which sits on his deak, reads: "The hope of mankind lies in the hands of youth and ac- tion." Lyles left pro football in 1969 after a brilliant career with the Colts and San Fran- cisco '49ers. During that time, he played in the 1968 Super Bowl and the 1966 Pro Bowl and was Baltimore's de- sive captain in 1968 and 1969. served on the board of gover- nors-end the National Hockey League. He had left a league meeting about 10 minutes before he fell, saying he had some telephone calls to make. An official of Minnesota North Stars, host to the hockey meet- Ings, quoted persons who had breakfast with Meyer as saying he appeared cheerful Tuesday morning. Pit Martin, a Chicago Black Hawks centre who played in Tuesday night's NHL all-star game, was in the next room, heard a crash and saw Meyers fall. Martin said later: "We were next door and heard the crash. He stepped on the ledge and let himself go. I didn't know who he was. I never met the man. It happened so fast there was nothing we could do." SEEN ON BEAM Paul Henderson of Toronto Maple Leafs, who was in the room with Martin, said: "It was a terrible thing. We saw him climb out on the steel beam out- side the window.' Martin's team-mates, Chico MaeM and Bobby Hull, were in the room below Meyer's. Maki was sitting near the window reading when he saw the man fall past. "Maybe I can save it for the 1 Hull said be and Maki rushed half-time he said. "We upstairs and saw a key in the performed in quite a lew clubs' door of the room above theirs. in the person of Jim (The King) Corcoran, and Ah You signing a three-year contract Tuesday, the Als obviously aren't looking forward to a dull season for a repeat of last year when they tripped from defending Grey Cup champions to also-rans. Ah You said he had played as a linebacker and tight end dur- ing his high school days in Ha- waii, but had come here to play defensive end. It was during an interview that his native dance feats came to light. PLAY IN CLUBS He and wife Almira, currently in Hawaii awaiting the arrival of the couple's second child, put a nightclub act together while he attended Arizona. when I was at Arizona." Whether general manager Red O'Quinn has him doubling as a half-time attraction or not, the Als apparently feel they have picked a good one. O'Quinn, who saw his latest recruit play in the recent Hula Bowl, rates Ah You as excellent at getting to the opposing quart- erback. "He's very quick and fast in his O'Quinn said. Head coach Sam Etcheverry agreed but, said he has told the newcomer to come to camp at 230 pounds, rather than his cur- rent 220-pound weight. O'Quinn said there has not been a Hawaiian on the Mont- real squad since his own pass- catching days for Etcheverry aerials in the 1950s. Tom Hugo an all-star centre, was the Hawaiian member of the club at that time. Ah You said Hugo was instru- mental in guiding him to Mont real. "He's from the same island as I am and he had some influ- ence on my decision to come Ah You said. Kodiaks leave for west coast The Lethbridge Community College Kodiaks left today for a four game exhibition basket- ball tour on the west coast. Thursday the Kodiaks will take on the Vancouver City Col- lege while Friday and Saturday they'll meet Trinity College in Langley, B.C. Trinity College took part in the LCC Presidential Invitation- al tourney earlier in the season and defeated Mount Royal and suffered a loss to Great Falls. The Kodiaks final game will be played gainst Douglas Col- lege of Vancouver, B.C. Sun- day. BURNETT NAMED MINNEAPOLIS (CP) Red Burnett of Toronto Star was elected president of the Profes- sional Hockey Writers Associa- tion at the association's annual meeting Tuesday. Hull said they found a pair of glasses on the floor. "The glasses were broken and there was a little blood on them. There was some blood on the in- side knob on the door to the hall." A wallet found on the floor contained a picture of the dead man. Henderson and Martin said they did not hear any struggle in the next room before the win- dow crashed and they saw Meyer on the beam outside the window. Patterson wants win over Oscar NEW YORK (AP) Floyd Patterson said Tuesday he feels a victory over Oscar Bonavena would put him in line for a shot at Joe Frazier's world heavy- weight championship, e title Patterson first held 16 years ago. Patterson, 37, scheduuled to fight Bonavena in a lO-rounder Feb. 11 at Madison Square Gar- den, said Bonavena is "the only man who fought Frazier twice and went the distance both times and he also practically went the distance with Muham- mad Ali." Bonavena, 29, went 10 and 15 rounds with Frazier and never was knocked down, while he knocked Frazier down twice in the first fight. He gave Ali a hard time before being stopped in the 15th round last Dec. 7. Since the fight was first an- nounced for Jan. 17, 1971 it has been postponed four times. The first postponement came when Bonavena's physician said the fight was too soon after Bonavena's loss to Ah'. The next three postponements resulted from hand injuries to Bonavena. Patterson, the only man to win the heavyweight title twice, has won his last seven fights and had a 54-7-1 record with 39 knockouts. Bonavena, who won his only start last year when Al "Blue" Lewis was disqualified, has a 47-7-1 mark, with 32 I knockouts. CLARKE BATTLES FOR PUCK Bobby Clarke, of the Philadelphia Fly- ers, tries to steal the puck for the West All-Stars Tuesday night in annual National Hockey League All-Star game. The East edged the West 3-2 on a Esposito., Orr combine for winning marker goal by Phil Esposilo of the Boston Bruins. East goolie Ken Dryden (1) of the Montreol Canadians, aave up bolh West goals. Reay contends defence the difference MINNEAPOLIS (CP) A National Hockey League all-star game presents some unique sit- uations for the participating coaches as Al MacNeil and Billy Heay discovered Tuesday night when the East edged the West 3-2 in the annual divisional con- test. "It's a real treat to be able to throw a Bobby Orr, Brad Park, J.C. Tremblay or Frank Mahov- lich on the ice whenever you need said MacNeil, coach of the East Division stars. That luxury, especially the Bobby Orr aspect, enabled MacNeil to claim the victory and coach Reay of the West Di- vision stars had no room for disagreement. "The difference was on de- admitted Reay, coach of Chicago Black Hawks, after the game before a sellout crowd of ill the Minnesota Centre. "There was nothing wrong with our forward lines. "But when you go up against the defence stacked with guys like Orr, Tremblay and Park, it's pretty hard to go anywhere. "That's not meant as any knock against our own de- fencp.." t h e Chicago Black Hawks coach added. "It's just that Orr does such a great Job on defence, almost impossible to get by him." Bobby Hull, the perennial all- star left winger with the Black Hawks, got by the East defence for his fifth career all-star goal in 11 games, but he was stopped thereafter. Simon Nolet of Philadelphia Flyers made it 2-0 for the West before the East came back with Jean Ratelle of New York Rangers, John McKenzie of Boston Bruins and the winner by Bruin centre Phil Esposito early in the third period. Hull and eight of his Chicago team-mates led the offence against the East but were stopped time and again by Orr and goaltender Gilles Villemure of New York who took over the netminding chores from Mont- real's Ken Dryden for the last half of the game Dryden allowed the two West goals while Hawk goalie Tony Esposito gave up Ratelle's goal before his replacement, Gump Worsley of Minnesota North Stars, allowed the final two East goals. But the two-way perform- ances of Orr and Park were the key faclors in the East victory. Orr stopped a shot by Bobby Hull late in the game that knocked the wind out of him, but he made a second save be- fore limping to the bench. He returned minutes later to finish the game. The Bruin defence star also earned an assist on Esposito's winning goal and both players thus picked up their first all- star points. It was Orr's fifth game and Esposito's fourth. Each East player took home for the victory, with ?250 going to each of the losing West stars. But the East members One owner in trouble? Knicks nearly blew it By THE ASSOCIATED PRESS "How could we blow a lead like wondered Dave DeBusschere of New York Knicks. "They (Boston Celtics) must be saying that, too" said his team-mate, Eddie Mast, after the Knicks had blown a 20-point second-quarter lead, fallen be- hind by 11 points in the final pe- riod, then rallied for a 109-106 National Basketball Association victory Tuesday night. It was DeBusschere's 18-foot jump shot with 12 seconds re- maining that finally settled the see-saw contest. DeBusschere finished the game with 16 points and a team-leading 18 rebounds. The victory was the Knicks' fourth in the last five games and pulled them within four games of first-place Ecston in the Atlantic Division. Elsewhere, Milwaukee Bucks walloped Seattle SuperSonics 123-91, Golden State Warriors downed Cleveland Cavaliers 117-111, Atlanta Hawks beat Buffalo Braves 123-110, Houston Rockets trimmed Portland Trail Blazers 118-104 and Los Angeles Lakers took Phoenix Suns 129- 119. Walt Frazier v.-ss the high scorer for New York with 35 points. Jo Jo While led the Celtics with 33. Bob Dandridge's 30 points and Ka r e e re Abdul-Jabbar's 26 pLced Milwaukee's victory over Seattle. The Warriors, led by Cazzie Russel's 35 points and Jim Bar- nett's season-high of 29, handed Cleveland Us llth consecutive setback. Pete Maravich's eight quick points in the second period helped Atlanta break loose from a 37-36 lead and gain a com- manding 61-42 halftime advan- tage over Buffalo. Maravich fin- ished with 28 points. With Elvin Hayes and Rudy Tomjanovich combining for 42 points, Houston rocketed to a 95-59 lead against Portland with remaining in the third pe- riod. Gail Goodrich iired in 33 points, sparking a second-half Los Angeles comeback that car- ried the Lakers past Phoenix. Meanwhile in Washington the National Basketball Association knows of complaints that a team owner may be connected to organized crime and is inves- tigating the situation, commis- sioner Walter Kennedy says. Kennedy made the statement Tuesday in an exchange with Sen. Sam J. Ervin Jr. whose Senate sub-committee on anti trust and monoply is studying a bill to exempt anti- trust laws and permit the leagues to merge. The committee postponed fur- ther testimony until Feb. 22. Ervin questioned Kennedy after an assertion by another congressmen, Rep. Sain Steiger that Cincinnati Roy- als' owner Jerry Jacobs had or- ganized crime links through a holding company called Em. prise Corp. Replying to Ervin's query about what action, if any, was being taken on the matter, Ken- nedy said: "I deeply resent the inference that the office of the commis- sioner of the NBA is totally una- ware of what is going on and not doing anything about it. "We're not turning our back on Kennedy Ervin. Steiger, a surprise witness, said Emprise operates a num- ber of subsidiaries known as Sportservices. had an added bonus to shoot for locker room pool with the pot going to the shooter of the winning goal. It appeared to spur Esposilo, the Bruin who set a league record 77 goals and 154 points last year but who had been held pointless in the annual classic. "Guess who won said Orr, peeling off from his billfold as his ante towards the in- centive that went to Esposito. "But I think Dallas (Smith) and I should get a third of he added in reference to the assists given fee two Bruin defencemen on the play. Park also was the victim of a Bobby Hull snot midway through the second period that sent him to the clinic for three stitches to his left eye. "I went down to stop Hull's shot but his stick came up and caught me over the the Ranger defenceman said. Park returned to the ice late in the second period and immediately sent McKenzie away with the goal that tied the score 2-2. EAST 1 WEST 2 Firsl Period 1. Wesl, P..
