Lethbridge Herald (Newspaper) - January 30, 1971, Lethbridge, Alberta 8 ~ THE KTHBRIDGE HWAID - Saturday, Jonuory 30, 1971 ANDY CAPP Liquori close but no record Piay again tonight NEW YORK (AP) - The 64th Wanamaker-MUlrose Track Meet was another artistic success but although Marty Liquori tried valiantly, the magical sub-four-minute mile will have to wait at least another year. Liquori, a Viflanova senior and never a loser at' Madison Square Garden, ran his winning string to 11 as he swept to the mile title Friday night in 4:00.6, tying Die meet record. But it was the slow pace for three-quarters of a mile that hindered Liquori, who raced to a fantastic 55.1 final quarter after the first three were run in 3:05.5. "I had an awful lot left ait the end," said Liquori, a 21-year-old from Cedar Grove, N.J. "That indicated, I think, that I could have run faster. "But I planned to take the lead with.four laps to go-no sooner-I'd have gone faster if the pace were better." HAVE TO WAIT And so the Millrose Games will have to wait again for the elusive sub-four-minute mile. Tom Von Ruden of the Pacific Coast Club and a fellow Olympian, had predicted he would go under four minutes here but failed and was second to Liquori in 4:02.1. Italy's Gianni Del Buno was third. Three records were broken and three defending champions won before a crowd of 16,274 at the Garden's 11-lap banked Elastroturf track. Kerry Pearce, an Australian who runs for Texas-El Paso, snapped the two-mile mark with an 8:36.4 clocking and was awarded the meet's Most Valuable Athlete award.

Prem. GASOLINE 439 489 Chinooks upend Regina, home stand under way By LLOYD YAMAGISHI Herald Sports Writer "One down three to go." Wilma Winter's University of Lethbridge Chinooks came out strong in the second half and edged the University of Sas- katchewan Regina Cougarettes 48-44 last night. The Chinooks host three more Western Canada Inter - Collegiate Women's Basketball League games in the next four days and coach Winter is hoping for a clean sweep. mmmmmmmmn Stan Fischler's Inside Hockey  ......"rrn........r...................r-".....-......-.....*""im WHEN Montreal Canadiens' ex-coach Claude Ruel lost the sight in his eye as a junior hockey player he quit playing. Likewise, when Detroit Red Wings coach Doug Barkley was blinded in one eye during an NHL game he was forced to retire. Perhaps that explains why the recent revelation of 55-year-old Bill Chadwick, a member of Hockey's Hall of Fame, is that much more amazing. Chadwick has revealed that he spent 16 years refereeing in the NHL and all during that time he was blind in his right eye. "It wasn't until recently that I actually started talking about it," Chadwick told me. "During my refereeing career I didn't think it would be smart to worry about it because I might not have been as effective." A native New Yorker, Chadwick was a budding 19-year-old New York Rangers' center-ice prospect when he suffered the hockey mishap which dramatically altered his career. It was March 1935 and lie was going to be playing in an all-star amateur, hockey game at Madison Square Garden. As Chadwick stepped on the ice to start the game he was hit in the eye by a puck accidentally fired by an opponent. After hospitalization, Chadwick was informed he now had only one good eye. Amazingly, he returned to play in the following season with the Rangers' farm club, the New York Rovers, and this time was hit in the good eye. At that point Bill quit playing although he eventually recovered full vision in his left eye. A few weeks later Chadwick was pressed into service as an emergency Eastern League referee when the regular official was snowbound and stranded. He soon became a regular arbiter, then an NHL linesman and finally NHL referee. ? ? ? Now a prosperous businessman and "color" man for Ranger radio broadcasts, Chadwick refereed through the World War II years and then the turbulent post-war period against such irksome characters as Ted Lindsay and Gordie Howe. According to Chadwick, his eyesight disability turned out to be useful in its own way. "Because I knew about my problem," he explained, "I made it a point to be on top of the play. I skated harder and was involved in the game at all times. "Having only one good eye didn't hamper me at all. In those days I had 20-20 vision in my left eye so it was no problem. I was never away from the net when there was a play on the net." Not long after Chadwick made his disclosure to me I asked several NHL players, including Rocket Richard and Bill Durnan whether they were aware that Chadwick had only one good eye. They said they had heard rumors about it but never were quite sure was true. 'I really don't know if any of the players really knew about it," said Chadwick. "But this much I do know, in all the years I refereed and was an NHL linesman nobody said anything to me about my eye. If anybody had done it I certainly would have remembered because I was very sensitive about the whole thing. "On the other hand I know that the NHL governors knew about it and I'm pretty damn sure that some of the managers like Conn Smythe, Art Ross and Jack Adams knew about it." Over the years Chadwick was regarded as one of the most competent referees.ever to skate in the NHL although some fans might take exception to that statement as they once took exception to his calls. Once, in a game between Toronto and the Bruins at Boston, Chadwick called a misconduct penalty against Jimmy Thomson of the Maple Leafs. A period later he called a similar penalty against a Bruin. A Boston Garden fan was so angry he wrapped up several newspapers and swung at Chadwick. "He knocked me cold," Chadwick recalled. "When 1 finally came to my senses Thomson was standing next to me and pointed out the guy who had hit me. I had him ejected from the building. "I really liked what Thomson did. It proved what I already knew - that players can disagree with you all the way but they won't let anyone interfere with your game." Chadwick retired at the age of 39 although he believed he had a few years left in his legs. A year later, an amazing thing happened; Bill Chadwick, a referee, was given a "night" in his honor at Madison Square Garden, the first and only time a referee ever was so honored in the NHL. Naturally, when Chadwick stepped out on the Garden ice to receive his plaque a cascade of boos poured down on him. "If there weren't boos from the gallery," Chadwick concluded, "I'd have known that they didn't appreciate me!" Shaw takes tourney lead KAN DIEGO (AP) - Bob Shaw, a"), a brash, boisterous Australian, took the second-Williams-San Diego Open golf tournament by shooting a four-under-par 68 Friday. He had a 36-hole total of 135. nine under par on the 6,792-yard Torrey Pines Golf Club course. Shaw led Texans Terry Dill and Dave Eichelberger by one .stroke.

Comets overpower Rams In last night's action a small gathering at the Civic Centre watched the visiting Cougarettes lead throughout the first half and came back for the final half of play with a five point margin. The brief rest must of helped the Chinooks as they rammed in two quick baskets and followed with four more to take the lead for the first time in the game. On the other hand the Cougarettes, who were a ball of fire in the first half, seemed to run out of fuel. With three minutes remaining in the contest the local gals' held a solid seven point margin but watched the Cougarettes battle back in the iinal minutes of play, never losing hope of a victory. They pressed hard but to no avail as time ran out for the battling visitors. Leona Voth topped the Chinooks attack as she hooped 14 points while teammate Sharon CCHS COUQOTS tVUIl Zeniths 52-49 Giduk chipped in with 10.
