Lethbridge Herald {Newspaper} - 1974-01-30,Lethbridge, Alberta W«inM«iy, Mwy m, 1«74-THI LHWWOOS NHUL0-1t J^iggest day thus far for u» Wrestlers earn five golds CHRISTCHURCH, N.Z. <CP) — Five gold medals from a vastly Improved ^stUng team and a victory by Wendy Cook of Vancouver Ih the women’s 100-metre ickstroke today highUghted Ida’s biggest one-day per- formance of the Commonwealth Games. Aluig with the six golds, the Canadians took two silver and five bronze medals, regaining some of the ground they lost Tuesday when the Australians built up a big margin, mostly in track and field The Aussies retained the over-all lead with three victories in swimming events and one in weightlifting, giving them a total of 19 gold medals to the Canadians’ 1?. No surprise Jones was first, he wants to play in the NFL NEW YORK (AP) - Dallas Cowboys drafted Tennessee State’s Ed Jones and tlie big defensive lineman threw the World Football League for a bit of a loss Houston had the worst record in the National Football League last season but Dallas, thanks to a trade, had the Oilers’ first-round pick, mainly No. 1. “There never was any question about him being No.'l,” Cowboys scouting chief Gil Brandt said in Dallas. 'The Detroit team of the WFL had written Jones’ name on its draft card a week ago but Jones made it obvious that he didn't go for the new league. "I prefer to play in the NFL,” the six-foot nine-inch player said at a news conference in Dallas moments after bis name had kicked off the draft The 260-pounder said he would "prefer to play defensive end. I have the agility,-quickness and speed for that Msition.” It took 3^4 hours for the 26 lielections of the first round to be made. The session ended at 9:02 p.m. with the completion of the fifth round. That left 12 founds—312 of the 442 players up for grabs—for today. ; Running backs accounted tor a high 23 of the 7S offensive ¿layers taken Tuesday and Diego took the first of ihem. The Chargers, No. 2 in the order, went for Colorado’s £Z8-pound Bo Matthews GUNTS TAKE HICKS i New York Giants, whose 241-1 record equalled San Diego’s but who lost the coin flip for the chance to go No. 2, didn't lose anything. They wanted John Hicks and they got the two-time all-America offensive tackle from Ohio State. Rozelle hands Grant fine NEW YORK (AP) - A ^kesman for commissioner me Rozelle of the National Football League confirmed Tuesday night that Minnesota Vikings’ head coach, Bud Grant, had been fined for his conduct prior to the Super Bowl, but would not disclose the amount of the fine The penalty was levied, the spokesman said, because of Grant’s continuing criticism of the training facilities which the NFL provided for the Vikings before Minnesota’s 24-7 loss to Miami Dolphins at Houston earlier this month. At that time, Rozelle issued a warning to Grant and said he would'review the case at a later time "It has been reviewed,” the commissioner’s office said Tuesday, “and appropriate action has been taken.” It would not elaborate on the term “appropriate action,” other than to say that Grant had been fined Chicago Bears took Tennessee State linebacker Raymtmd Bryant, Baltimore Colts picked Nebraska defensive tackle John Dutton, New York Jets went for another defensive tackle in Indiana’s Carl Barzilauskas; tight end J. V. Cain of Colorado went to St. Louis Cardinals, Detroit Lions took Penn State linebacker Ed O’Neil, San Francisco ’49ers used its two first-round picks to take Alabama running back Wilbur Jackson and UCLA defensive tackle Bill Sandifer.    • Penn State's John Cappelletti, the Helsman Trophy-winning running back, was taken by Los Angeles Rams .... On and on it went. There were hardly any surprises, except perhaps for the fact that, for the first time since the NFL began drafting players in 1936. none of the teams opted for a quarterback in the first round ... or the second one, either. Danny White was the first to go. At the start of the third round, the Cowboys took the Arizona State passer who was picked in the second round by Chicago of the WFL Referees ordered to clamp down RED DEER (Special) -The Alberta Amateur Hockey Association has issued a directive placing the onus on teams to stop abuse of minor hockey referees by fans. Don Dillon, minor hockey chairman for the AAHA, said the situation at arenas throughout the province is alarming. He said three referees hav'e been attacked. He did not provide more details. The directive instructs referees to stop ^ game in which fan abuse is too great. Unruly spectators Would be remov^ by arena attendants ii available or the responsibility would be handed over to the home team. Dillon said any game could be baited if abuse by fans was not controlled. Meanwhile Pete Lewko, Southern    Alberta representative of Uie AAHA plans to see that the new directive will be properly enforced in his jurisdiction. “We haven’t run into as many problems as some parts of the province, but we’ll abide to the new ruling closely for preventive measures,” commented Lewko. It seems as though the fans have taken the blunt of the blow, but Lewko made it clear that the young hockey players are also inviuved in the new ruling. “The AAHA has instructed its referees to clamp down severely on “head-hunting” hockey players and have even ordered them to shut-down the game after five minutes into ttie first period if the game appears to be getting too dirty. The referees will more-than-likely hand-out game misconducts to players who are abusive and will warn the teams before the game gets out of hand,” he said. The major pomt behind the directive is to decrease the abuse officials have been facing lately and to force the young hockey players into playing the game the way it should be. The directive applies to only minor hockey league encounters and not of those that are of junior calibre and upwards. The directive may be enforced in the other leagues as well shortly.

Canada swept alt seven weight divisions in wrestling at the inaugural games in 1930, dropped to three in 1834 and won a total of only five in the next six eompetitions as the sport was gradually taken over by grapplers from India and Pakistan. The seeds of the resurgence were sown at Edinburgh in 1970 when Canadians picked up nine wrestling medals: one gold, five silver and three bronze That was actually one more than the Christchurch total But this time there were only three lesser medals In the Canadian hoard; one silver and two bronze The winners ranged from light flyweight Mitch Kawasaki of Hamilton to super-heavyweight Bill Benko of Calgary.

"I am loved all over the earth,*’ the 32-year-old former heavyweight boxing chanipion announced to a morning-after news conference at M^son Square Garden. One of the results of All’s 12-round decision over the slugger who beat him in their ballyhooed Battle of the Century nearly three years ago was that it restored a forum for the glib, cocky pugilist. Ali brought the White House into his line of fire when he began discussing his own universal popularity with the common people. “Mr. Nixon is the president, but he doesn’t have the people behind him.” Ali said. “That’s the trouble with this world. When you want to get elected, you go out on the streets, yon go into the shops and you talk to the poor people “But when you’re elected, you forget them. “I am the most famous man in the world, but I don’t lose touch.” The two-hour news conference, with Frazier aRiearing first and Ah joining later, had one tense moment vrtien Joe and Ali got into a religious discussion. With Frazier and Joe’s trainer, Eddie Putch, sitting on the stage with him, Ali upbraided Futch for persisting on calling him by his Christian name, Cassius Clay, instead of his Muslim name, Muhammad All “Clay is my slave name,” Ali said with a ring of anger in his voice “So I don’t want you to keep calling me Clay " Ali glared a1^ Futch. “Is that a threat’” asked Frazier, bristling. “I’m talking to Futch,” Ali said. “Not you, Joe. After all, it’s ignorant . ” Frazier stiffened in his chair. It was a word that set off a tugging match between the two fighters in a television South umpires plan meetings Umpire in chief George Rayment of Calgary will be in Leubridge ho^ng to form an association for local and district umpires this weekend. Rayment, who is the chief umpire from Red Deer south to the U.S. border, will meet with the local umpire? Friday ni^t and with the Medicine Hat and Claresholm Umpires Association Saturday morning.

Joe,” Ali said. “If we fight again, we will have another big fight for money.” Lighter, faster and all grim. determination where three years ago he gambled, fooled and fell, Ali took charge from the opening bell with flashing jabs, hooks, uppercuts and rippling combination punches that battered, frustrated, enraged and finally wore down Frazier. But Ali, no longer as fast or as fleet of foot as he was in his prime, had to dig into the deepest reserves of his skill and stamina to keep ths stalking, weaving, remorseless Frazier at bay Ali was unable to put Frazier away although he could well have been robbed of the chance of a knockout in the second round. in the women planned for Edmonton. s series are Aug. 21-25 in REGION 14 UNIFARM 1974 BONSPIBL Fab. 18th, 19th A 20th Lttliliridgi Civic Ice Centre OPEN TO ALL UNIPAHM MEMBERS AND ABSOCIATED MEMBERS 4 EVENTS —^24 PER RINK Desdllne: Monday, February 4th ENTRIES TOi MISS MOLLY COUPUND 721 • Mt Strati S., LeHib or Phone I27-04M I.......msDAYs.......I LEO SINGER’S 16th ANNUAL STORE WIDE ■ LLU ainULli O J.UUI    ■■ ^ amcxes&i Don't miss out on the final 3 great savings (¡ays of our 16th flnnua/ Bargain Carnival Our Entire fine stock offered at great savings MEN'S SPOUT JACKETS ürfBlAZEIIS ; a group of Fortrel Jackott Rag. to fid.dS 29 ICIAL .99 A selection or Fortrel and Wool Blands Rag.
