The Lethbridge Herald (Newspaper) - January 31, 1974, Lethbridge, Alberta Three more golds for Canadian team Cook breaks world swimming mark Not all games finished according to the script By GLENN COLE Canadian Press Staff Writer Almost everything went as expected in the National Hockey League Wednesday night.' New York Rangers downed Pittsburgh Penguins 4-2 and St. Louis Blues defeated Calfornia 6-4, the Golden Seals' 26th loss in 27 games on the road. Hie only suprise came when Vancouver Canucks thrashed the Red Wings in Detroit. The Canucks can add the win to their nine losses and one tie in Detroit since joining the league in 1970. Vancouver, last in the East Division, had a 2-0 first-period lead and put four goals past starting goalie Bill McKenzie in the second. Jim Rutheford, acquired from Pittsburgh in a trade this month, replaced McKenzie in the final 20 minutes and allowed one Schmautz's second of the game and 26th of the season. Don Tannahill, John Gould, Gerry O'Flaherty, Andre Boudrias and Dave Dunn got the other Vancouver goals. Nick Libett, Guy Charron and Red Berenson replied for the Red Wings. The Penguins played without defenceman Dave Burrows who suffered a partial shoulder separation and torn muscles in his left arm playing for the West team in the league's all-star clash Tuesday night. Still, Pittsburgh, seventh in the NHL West, stayed even with New York, third in the East, until 9-44 of the third period when Brad Park drilled a 35-foot shot past Penguin's goalie Andy Brown during a New York power play Ted Irvine and Rod Selling had put the Rangers ahead 2-0 in the second period before Weekend Windfall Fri. to Mon.

Jean Ratelle got an insurance goal for New York a little more than minutes left in the third period. The opposition wore the lemon-colored uniforms but the Vancouver Blazers came up with the sour performance Wednesday night, as Chicago Cougars increased their World Hockey Association playoff chances by doubling the score on the Blazers, 4-2. In the night's only other game, Houston Aeros battled Cleveland fans as well as the Crusaders as they were bombed 5-1. The Blazers took penalties when they shouldn't have as they went down to their fourth straight defeat, before a crowd in the Vancouver Coliseum. ST.

Mike Chernoff and Bryan Campbell got the Vancouver goals. The Cougars lost forward Bobby Whitlock just 49 seconds into the second period. He took a tripping penalty and a misconduct, then shoved referee Bob Kolari and was handed a match misconduct. In Cleveland, Houston coach Bill Dineen and winger Gordie Howe charged into the stands late in the second period, chasing a fan who had shouted an insult. One witness said the remark included a reference to "bush leaguers."

(CP) Backstroker Wendy Cook of Vancouver, who had been flirting with world records all week, finally broke one at the Commonwealth Games today. Swimming the opening leg of the 400-metre medley relay, the 17-year-old high school student covered the 100 metres in one minute 4.78 seconds to wipe out the mark of set by Ulrike Richter of East Germany last October in the world cham- pionships at Belgrade. Miss Cook's feat spurred the Canadians to victory in the re- lay, giving her a second gold medal to go with the one she earned individually over the same distance Wednesday. It was the 20th Canadian gold medal of the Games, equalling the previous high achieved by Canada in the inaugural Games of 1930. The other two Canadian gold medallists of the day were old hands at the game. Bev Boys of Pickering, Ont., retained the women's tower diving championship she won at Edinburgh four years ago and Russ Prior of Hamilton was a repeat winner in weightlifting. Another defending champion lost his title when Punch Gunalan of Malaysia, a beaten quarter-finalist four years ago, decisively defeated Jamie Paulson of Toronto in the final of the badminton men's singles In the men's 100 butterfly Neil Rogers of Australia came from behind to nip Byron MacDonald of Mississauga, Ont., and Bruce Robertson of Vancouver in 56.58 for another Games record. The two Canadians touched almost simultaneously, MacDonald in 56.83 and Robertson in 56.85. But there was no overtaking the Canadians in the relay as Marian Stuart of Dorval, Que, Miss Stenhouse and Gail Amundrud had no trouble maintaining the generous lead Miss Cook's world-record performance had given them. Wendy had come close to the world mark in her heat of the 100 backstroke but had registered a slower time in the final. Earlier today, she was close to another world record in qualifying for the final of the 200 backstroke. NIGERIAN GIRL WINS Modupe Oshikoya won Nigeria's first gold medal of the Games in the women's long jump by clearing 21 feet 2V4 inches. Brenda Eisler of Burnaby, B.C., barely took the silver when she and Ruth Martin-Jones of Wales had equal jumps of 20-11V4, but did better than the Welsh girl on her second-best jump. Miss Oshikoya also finished third behind Judy Vernon of England in the 100-metre hurdles and helped a Nigerian Gilmore fooled critics, voted game's top star By THE CANADIAN PRESS Artis Gilmore of Kentucky Colonels answered some of his critics Wednesday night, spar- king the East to a 128-112 win over the West in the American Basketball Association all- star game at Norfolk, Va The seven-foot, two-inch centre, often accused of not playing up to his potential, was named the game's most valuable player The 24-year-old Gilmore scored 18 points, led the East with 13 rebounds and topped both teams in blocked shots with four Babe McCarthy, the East coach and Gilmore's coach during the regular season, pointed to the centre as the difference in the game "He made them chance a lot of things around in the first said McCarthy "It was one of the most inspired games I have ever seen him plan and one of the most intimidating West coach Joe Mullaney of Utah Stars thought the MVP award should have gone to Sven Nater, the six-foot, 11- inch centre for San Antonio Spurs Nater, understudy to two- time ail-American Bill Walton at UCLA, scored 29 points and grabbed an all-star record 22 rebounds Dan Issel of Kentucky added 21 points and Larry Kenan of New York Nets 18 for the East In Wednesday's NBA games, Boston Celtics beat Cleveland Cavaliers 120-108, Detroit Pistons topped Bvffato Braves 111-M, New York Knicfcs whipped Kansas City-Omaha Kings IM-tt, CMttflO Mis defeated Capi- tal Bullets 103-94 and Golden State Warriors dropped Atlanta Hawks 129-122 Celtics 120 Cavaliers 108 Jo Jo White scored 27 points and Paul Westphal scored 15 and made eight key assists for the Celtics Pistons 111 Braves 96 Bob Lamer pumped in 36 points for the Pistons to win a duel with Buffalo's Bob McAdoo, the league's top scorer, who had 30 Knicks 108 Kings 88 Dave DeBusschere scored 19 points to lead a balanced New York attack that out- scored the Kings 34-15 during a third-period splurge Bulls 103 Bullets 94 Reserve forward Howard Porter tossed in 10 points during the final five minutes to help the Bulls preserve their fifth win in a row Bowling HOLIDAY BOWL VASA LODQC Arvid Oseen 258, Nick Blanch! 292, Nellie Berry 251, Slim Berry 250, Flo Seager 221 Lil Hegland 230 Hilda Bianchi 221 Will Ness 268 PEPSI Rob Brown 2S4 Charlie Stokes 22?

Lester Maddox, an avowed segregationist, shook hands Wednesday with black baseball star Hank Aaron of Atlanta Braves and then told Georgia lawmakers Aaron's portrait should hang in the Capitol building portrait gallery. Maddox has protested the hanging of a portrait of the late Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. "There are some of them I wouldn't want the lieu- tenant governor said. "But I'd like to ask the governor to give immediate consideration to hanging a portrait of Hank Aaron in the Capitol." Aaron, who received standing ovations in both the House and the Senate, told lawmakers he would like to hit his 714th home run in the Atlanta Stadium, "where all my friends can see it." Aaron currently has 713 homers, one shy of Babe Ruth's all-time home run mark.
