Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - July 6, 1973, Lethbridge, Alberta Jvly t, 1f73 THIIETHMIDOI HMA10 13 Berday9 s group says they will still go ahead with plans for season Lethbridge Longhorns get backing of city committee By PAT SULLIVAN Berald Sports Editor A hypothetical question was raised Tlwrsday after- noon at the public hearing on the junior hockey situation in Lethbridge. A special committee, chair- ed by Em Sauer, was set up to DMT briefs from two or- ganizations seeking to oper- ate Junior franchises in the City of Letbbridge this com- ing winter. The question that was put to chairman Sauer was "sup- pose your group recom- mends the backing of group A and group B receives the franchise in the Alberta Ju- nior Hockey It would appear, in an off- beat sort of way, that this may have already happened. Lethb ridge Longhorns, a group of Letbbridge sports- men, beaded by Herb Chris- tie, was represented by city lawyer Charles Virtue while a second with Ab Berday the spokesman, pre- sented their briefs to the six- member committee. Joining Sauer on the committee were Mrs. D. Sutherland, Doran Berlando, Greg Mouton, Bob Barttett and Jim Gough. Sec- retary Thursday afternoon was Ken Seaman. At the conclusion of the two-hour meeting, the com- mittee went into a closed- door gathering to make their decision. Seaman, shortly after sev- en o'clock, released the news that the committee favored the Lethbridge .Longhorns and would recommend to the Alberta Junior Hockey League that the provincial league give first considera- tion to the Longhorns when a decision is made pertaining to the franchise of the Leth- bridge Sugar Kings in the six- team league. The committee's decision, passed on a motion by Doran Berlando read: "That the Longhorns be given the backing of the com- mittee by virtue of the follow- ing paragraph stated in their submission, which reads: The club was formed for OK purpose of keep- ing junior hockey owned and operated by local citizens, responsive to the needs of the local boy and the local fan and to the requirements of the local citizens who own the ice faculties. And further, that this state- ment be reviewed yearly to assess whether indeed this philosophy is maintained. If there is any deviation of this statement or unworkable re- lationships with minor hoc- key then this committee will withdraw its support of ice time and use of city fa- cilities." "I thought I made myself very clear this said Berday in a telephone interview after the news had been released that his bid for ice time in Lethbridge had been turned down. "I bought the Lethbridge Sugar Kings lock, stock and barret Everything the Kings owned is now mine, including equipment, players and their franchise in the Alberta Ju- nior Hockey League." Berday went on to say he was very happy for Herb Christie and his group. "I'm pleased they'll be given a chance to ice a team this win- ter." con- tinued Berday "Obviously went with the locals because of their verbal assurance that at least 60 per cent of the Longhorns' team would be local boys." "We just can't see enough local players being good enough to form a team ca- pable of plajing up to the standards in the add- ed Berday. With Berday at the meet- ing were Ed Brucbet and Ed Dorohoy. "We'll find a sheet of ice somewhere. Dorohoy will coach the Sugar Kings and Bruchet will be the director of player personnel and pub- lic said Berday. Berday made it very clear he was not disappointed at the committee's decision. He did say however, that hockey .in Lethbridge has suffered in the past two or three years and it would ap- pear it will continue to do so. On the other hand, Christie was more than pleased. "Of course I'm be stated by telephone Thurs- day evening. "Now if I could just get a hold of Maxwell (Stan) to tell him the good news we could get the ball rolling tonight." Maxwell, who will coach the Longhorns where ever they play, is one of the five members of the directors of the Longhorns along with Christie, Dr. Tony Pomobac, Harry Cox and Gordon Hosel- ton. Maxwell is currently on holidays in "eastern Canada. Christie, in a brief conver- sation felt at least two items helped toe Longhorns find the committee's favor. "Our brief was said Christie. The brief was compiled by Mr. virtue. "Of course it doesn't sur- prise added Christie. brief 'Charlie has made up for us has been superb." Another point in the Long- horns' favor was their reply to a question by Bob Bartlett, director of Community Ser- vices for Lethbridge. When asked if the Long- horns were to be given just a one year contract for ice time, would tisey indeed want it? On behalf of the Long- horns, Virtue was quick to reply "absolutely. We want to prove ourselves. We'll take our chances." When asked the same ques- tion, Berday balked and stated that he would hove to reconsider his bid if tUf were the case. It is no secret the two groups have their sights set on a Tier one team for the Canada Games Sporteplex in 1975. But in the meantime, they must operate a team to stay in hockey. The question riffl remains, "What about the franchise 10 flie Alberta Junior Does Berday and Ins group indeed own it? Or wfll the league, as they have stated, wait until July 15 to mate their announcement? It would be a dilemma of major proportions If the Longhorns had the ice time and no franchise while Ber- day was stuck with a team and no ice.

He was the No. 1 pick of the Oilers, who finished the 1972 season with a 1-13 in the NFL.

Piersall, whose outfield catches remain topics of con- among fans who saw him at his peak in the 1990s am '60s, admits he wants to return to the majors as a coach. Piersall says one of his major tasks has been "learning how to cope with young people without blowing my top."
