The words of this saying rang true Friday night as the University of Lethbridge Pronghorns rallied with less than four minutes remaining tOitipend the University of Vic- toria Vikings 74-67 in a Canada West University Men's "Basketball League encounter staged at the local gym. The hard-fought victory was the. Pronghorns' fourth in 11 starts and leaves them still holding the fifth place spot in the six-team conference. On the other hand, the loss lessened the Vikings' chances of catching the league-leading University of Alberta Golden Bears who scored a slim 56-55 decision over the University of Calgary Dinosaurs last night in the capital city.

Phone 327-3231 CLOSED MONDAY 'Serving South Alberta for over 30 years' Bears are now holding 10 wins and a loss The Bears' only setback was against the Vikings Third place is held by the University of British Colum- bia Thunderbirds who scored an 82-70 victory over the University of Saskatchewaa Huskies last night while U of C follows in fourth and the Huskies in sixth. UBC is 6-5, U of C 5-6 and U of S 1-10. Meanwhile in last night's encounter, the Pronghorns just wouldn't quit and it paid off in the form of a brillant comeback victory. In the first 20 minutes of ac- tion, the Pronghorns started out with their effective defen- sive press which had the Vikings in a frenzy The locals carried the play in the opening minutes, but were unable to find the hoop, missing on five straight shots before finding the range. Where the score could have read 10-0, the Scoreboard only read 2-0 The Pronghorns' potentially dangerous surge didn't last for long though as the Vikings quickly adapted to the local's press and took command of the play for the remaining part of the first half. The smooth-flowing Vikings, who could only muster up a 37-32 lead by half- time, started out fast in the final 20 minutes of play and pulled ahead to a 12-point lead before the locals could re- group It looked as though the Vikings were well on their way to their eighth win of the season, but the west coast club stopped hustling, which proved to be their downfall By the four-minute mark, the locals decreased their 12- pomt deficit to only five and than rallied to take a 66-65 margin with 2 43 left in the contest The Pronghorns continued to press the Vikings and it was well worth it as they forced two turnovers which were converted into field goals by Phil Letham. With only 35 seconds remaining, Peter Sikora hooped a key basket and was followed by Max Zaugg's two successful free throws which slated away the win for the locals. Letham led the Pronghorns with a 20-point evening while Sikora and Larry Baker chipped in with 11 and 10 points apiece. Jim Hunter was a standout for the Vikings with a solid 21- point outing while Lee Ed- mundson added nine. Meanwhile the U of L Pronghorns women's varsity basketball squad had a rougher time as they suffered a 51-25 thrashing by the hands of the U of V Vikettes. Lorna McHattie notched 15 points for the visitors while Sandra Knight managed eight points for the Pronghorns. who trailed 25-12 at the half. In Edmonton Mike Frisby's foul shot with six seconds remaining gave the Bears a 56-55 victory over Calgary Dinosaurs. Alberta led 36-35 at the half. Frisby was the leading scorer with 14 while Steve Panteluk added 13 and Bill Hamilton 10 for the Bears. Mini-Games planned, dry run a good idea PINCHER CREEK (Special) The Southern Alberta Recreation Council, organizers for the Southern Alberta Summer Games, will be conducting a "mini games" in conjunction with the Lethbridge Southern Alberta Canada Winter Games Society. These 1974 Southern Alberta Winter Games are intended to serve as a dry run for the 1975 Canada Winter Games. It is hoped that these trial runs will assist in training officials, uncover areas of concern, allow testing of facilities and equipment, and will allow committees to test their ability to conduct the sport. In addition the 1974 Alberta Winter Games are intended to assist Southern Albertans in development of their sports programs. Information will be made available to the Pincher Creek Parks and Recreation Department in the near future defining events, times, places, etc. It appears that Pincher Creek will be able to enter competitors in the following sports: boxing, gymnastics, curling, hockey, basketball, volleyball, table tennis, badminton, figure skating and skiing. Pincher Creek has a limited ability to provide competitors in synchronized swimming, speed skating, fencing, judo and wrestling. The Pincher Creek Parks and Recreation Department would like to obtain a volunteer person to serve as Regional Director for the 1974 Southern Alberta Winter Games. The sporting interest areas will be contacted to provide a member on the Pincher Creek Region organizing committee.

Kroc, agreeing to buy the San Diego Padre? baseball team for a reported million, said Friday he con- siders National League approval assured. After being congratulated by the National League's president by telephone, Kroc said he asked Charles (Chub) Feeney if the call was premature, but "he said, 'No, I don't think so.'" "So I would assume he has covered it with the National League said the 71- year-old multimillionaire chairman of the board of McDonald's chain of ham- burger drive-ins. The approval of San Diego officials was obvious. Mayor Pete Wilson said Kroc had promised in an oral, handshake agreement to keep the baseball team in San Diego at least until 1980. Kroc told their joint news con- ference that he personally would pay any indemnity if the Padres should move. Commented Kroc, whose worth is estimated at mil- lion: "If I'm president of a corporation and sign as presi- dent and haven't got the guts to involve my personal net worth, I'm not much of a man A meeting of the league's owners was believed, being ar- ranged for Wednesday in San Francisco. Wilson said the city will dis- miss its million in lawsuits against the National League and a Washington, D.C., busi- nessman, Joseph Danzansky, as soon as approval is given.
