At 31 years of age Hull is embarking on what he will tell you has long been a dream of his, that of coaching a Junior hockey club. Hull, a brother to Bobby Hull of the Winnipeg Jets of the World Hockey Association, and Dennis of the Chicago Black Hawks of the National Hockey League, is set on leaving his mark on the world of hockey from behind a bench in the Alberta Junior Hockey League, for starters. To say that Taber was granted a franchise in the XtHL for the 1974'75 season was to have been the main topic of the agenda at a Taber press conference Tuesday morning. But the news that Taber, with a unanimous vote from the o^er six members of the league, will begin play in the AJHL next September, was not one the best kept secrets in Alberta hockey history. As early as January 8 news had leaked that Taber was strongly considered tor a franchise and that they had made a Hull of a scoop on the rest of the league by signing one of hockey’s Hull brothers. Hull will anchor, it one is allowed such a pun, the Taber club as both coach and general manager. A name for Uie new entry has yet to be decided. A contest, expected to get under way in the next two weeks will be the deciding factor in what the club will be called. Team colors will be green and gold and the team will play their home games out of the Taber Community Centre with accommodations for 2,900 fans And Taber has that many and a few extras. As can only be taken for granted, Gary Hull played hockey. He had junior stints with Bellville, Ont. and then finished his junior career with l^itby, Ont-His own abili^ got him a tryout with the Chicago Black Hawks. But a Hull threesome was not to be. After an absence of three irs from the game he gave le camp of the Ottawa entry in the World Hockey Association a whirl last year But as Hull put it you can’t be away from the game three years rad expect to do well. That, Hull will agree, is water under the bridge. He has his sights set on making Taber a contender in the AJHL. “I’m really looking forward to coaching the club,^' he said, "It’s whatl have always had a desire to do.” One might wonder what Gary Hull would be doing in Taber. "Besides enjoying the people of Taber ¿td a chance to coach junior hockey,” Hull states, “my family and I are kind of pioneering the area,” Hull wants to farm. He will tell you that some of the best farm land around is in Southern Alberta. It must be quite a decision to make for a young man to just pick up a family of four, along with wife Lois, and venture west. Gary and Lois have two boys and two girls. Gary Jr. is the eldest at 12, sister Tracy is 11 while the two younger members of the family are Troy, six and Susan, four Hull has some very definite ideas about his hockey club and they fit right in with the plans that Taber has entertained since they decided to bid for an AJHL franchise. In what has to be a first, as of this writing, for the AJHL, and possibly any other Junior league, Taber has an educational co-ordinator. Jim Oshiro will guide and direct tbe educational program for the players. The obj^tivity of the Taber Sports Enterprises, and I quote, "is to stress education and to give an opportunity to aspiring young hockey players in the area to use hockey as a development program for the future. Hull puts it much more frankly “We’ll keep track of the he activities of our players, h be hockey said. bums ‘They won'i Taber has invested nearly $7,000 just to get the club off the ground. A 'big step in the right direction has to be the man at the helm, Gary Hull. year the* Annual women’s bonspiel is set At least 20 of the M rinks enter^ in the Z6th annual Lethbridge Women’s Open Bonspiel will be up early Friday morning.

But he made it clear he was not ready to leave Riders. He still has two years to go on a three-year contract he signed in 1973 Gotta asked Loeb Monday for permission to talk to people who made the recent offer “I'm just sitting here waiting for permission,” he said “I was promised an MHw«r within a few days." the 11-3 Play it again Sam atqiears 10 be back haunting the Lethbridge Longhorns of the Alberta Junior Hockey League Longhorns, struggling to escape the league cellar, had that old bad period back facing them and it cost them an otherwise strong effort Tuesday, even before better than 600 at the Henderson Lake Ice Centre Proving once more that they are a much different hockey club at home than on the road, the Longhorns draped a 3-1 verdict to Calgary Canucks, In Calgary last Thursday Canucks registered an triumph. But with a few breaks it could have been a whole new ball game Canucks, while being full value for their win, could have suffered a 3>1 setback just as easily Goalposts and some erratic Longhorn shooting earned the Calgarians their second straight win over the Longhorns. For the 'Horns it was their fourth straight defeat Canucks, with rookie Gerry Bancks leading the way, grabbed a 341 first period lead and held the Longhorns at bay throughout the remaining 40 minutes Bancks scored twice for tbe Canucks while a aolo nuirker came off the stick of Butch Owchar. Randy Joevenano notched the lone Lethbridge nnarker. Owchar gave the Canucks a 1-0 lead at the $:i2 mark of the opening stansa while Bancks earned his goals at 11:13 and 17: *7.
