Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - July 11, 1972, Lethbridge, Alberta THt IITHBRIDGE HEUAID Tuudoy, July II, 1971 Despite triumph lie woiit be going to Olympics Canadian judo title means little to Illingworth lly PAT SULLIVAN Herald Sports Writer Phil lllingwovlh, of Lclh- liridgc, is a very upset 23-ycar- olri young man. And no one has more reason for being upset. Jllingworth is Ihe Canadian niidillcweighl judo champion and has been left off the team which will take part in the HI72 Olympics al Munich, Germany. Being left off the team is one tiling but the competitor Illing- worth defeated in the Canadian championships held in Halifax, Rainier Fisher of Toronto, is making the trip in his place. "I have written a number of letters to the Canadian Kodokan Black Belt said Illingworth in a recent inter- view. To dale, he has received no reply. Tlu's is not the firsl case of questionable decisions on the part of the CKBBA. Two other champions are being left al home and Uiey loo cannot gel au answer as lo why. Pal Bolgcr of Dullon, Onl. and Goki Uemura of Toronto will also be in Canada when the Olympics aro held. Al Sakai, a Vancouver com- petitor is going In place tC Bol- ger in the featherweight divi- sion. Yet Bolger beat Sakai in Halifax. So is Bill McGregor of Toron- to, beaten twice by Uemura in the Ontario and Canadian championships. As in the case of Ulingworth, (heir efforts lo find out why has fallen on deaf ears. They have borne little fruit, to say Uie least. The cases of Bolger and Ue- mura, while they do lend assist- ance lo Ihe efforts of Tiling- worlli, do not hit home like that of lUmgsworth. "I worked hard to gel lo the Canadian finals and after win- ning and being left olf the team I wonder if il was all worlh it." lllingworlh is a dedicated goes on to point out to by the eventual Ice! that the middleweight dent of judo. So much so, that their selection the divisions at the Is the strongest class in has spent the last two years is Inconsistent with level.

"For the second lime I would like to object to the fact that I have not been chosen to represent Canada at Olympiad 72. Mr. Fisher has been given my rightful position despite the fact that I outquab'fy him in the criteria of Olympic selection set by the annual general meeting of the CKBBA and the that he will have n berth on the Canadian team automatically. The Judokas past records, participation in mnjor tournaments, his placement in each meet, etc., would be significant factors in the deliberation of the selection committee. For this reason, Illingworth feels he has an even stronger case than just that of Ills Illingworth continued, fisher first took part in the 1069 Canadian championships which were held in Lethbridge and one which this writer covered. While Illingworth again reached the quarter-final level, Fisher failed to place. Before the J970 championship Illingworth and Fisher left Is going l.o Germany on Hie lour. It will not be the same.

The opponent Ill- ingworth defeated for the title is going to the Olympics and Phil isn't. The officials selected Rainier Fisher and lllingworth wants to know why. See story.

WONDERFUL NEW YOU Whee-e-e you're going to look and feel more wonderful than ever, 1 honks lo Vhe new cosmetic looks ond colors, Audrey GosHin explains, this Saturday IN YOUR LETHBRIDGE HERALD WEEKEND MAGAZINE Calgary and Saskatchewan wont stand pat Eskimos, Lions, Bombers make the most changes By GORDON GRANT Canadian Press Staff Writer New faces, new stars ome cases 1 d disappoint- ments, will be the name of the game in the Western Football Conference this season. In any case, with training camp behind them and the pre- season schedule opening up, the annual game of. f o 11 o w -t h e- leader is under way. Calgary Stampeders, Grey Cup champions and conquerers of the Canadian Football League All-Stars, and Saskat- chewan Roughriders will proba- bly make the fewest changes. They finished 1-2 in the WFC last year and ha- almost pat lineups. For Winnipeg, Edmonton and British Columbia, it will be a year o! trying to catch Calgary and Saskatchewan. And the coaches know it will be tough. Winnipeg Blue Bombers must tighten their defence; Edmon- ton Eskimos must boost their offence; B.C. L i o n-s n c e feared for their savage "head come up with a tighter defence and some con- sistent quarterbacking. But the leaders can't stand still. STAMPS NEED BACKS Calgary, which lives by the pass and a rock-like defence, needs offensive backs for depth; Saskatchewan has defensive backs on top of the priority list. In B.C. and Edmonton, where losing years may endanger the jobs of head coaches Eagle Keys and Ray Jauch, the per- formance of newcomers will be critical. Jauch saw his team drop to last place in 1971 from second the year before. Another losing year could be his last. The Lions spent lavishly dur- ing the winter and a losing sea- son might be Keys' swan song, even though his contract would not be up. With the action starting In earnest, here's how the WFC shapes up: Calgary Stampeders (9-6-1 last best and stingi- est defence in Canada last year, giving up fewer than two touch- downs a game- John Helton, Fred James, Dick Suderman and Craig Koinzan are. as solid as any front four in the league. Middle-linebacker Wayne Harris lineman of the year for four flanked by Joe Forzani, Dave Crabbe and Jim Furlong. And Calgary is strong in the secondary with Howard Starks, Larry Robin- son, Bill Van Burkleo, Terry Wilson and Frank Andruski. !t should be as tough for a rookie In hrcak in as it is for opposing backfieldcrs to break through. Herm Harrison i.s as fine a tight end as there is.

Saskatchewan Roughriders big green machine finished strongly lasl season, tyiug CalgaiT on points with 19, but taking second place because the Stamps beat them twice. Ron Lancaster continues lo give them solid quarterbacking and his backup Wyche and Bob can play halfback both ways. George Reed and Bobby Thompson will be tough again as running backs, but there's one position open because of the trade that sent Silas McKinnie to Hamilton Tiger-Cats. Steve Motaar has done the job capably in the past, but Ole Gunderson, who made Associated Press little All-America last year, showed well in camp. Jack Abendschan and Gary Brandt are set at other spot still open because of an off-season hernia operation lo Ralph Galloway. Gord Barwell, flanker; Nolan Bailey, tight end; Al Ford split problems there. Things are not so set in the defensive sec- ondary. Veterans Henry Dorsch and Bob Rosin1 may be on the way out after operations last year. Jim Campana, Ohio State, is working at Dorsch's right corner position. John Robertson, Kansas State, and Lewis Cook, Montreal Alouettes last year, also have looked good. Edmonton Eskimos They had the second-best defen- sive record in the West last year, but finished dead last be- cause of a poor offence. How- ever, after coach Ray Jauch cleaned house late in the sea- son, the Esks won their last five games. Bruce Lemmerman per- formed consistently at quarter guard, with Clyde Brock one 1 back, but Hank Harris, 'an im- ANDY CAPP AI'LL A CHAIWE DON'T BEAT 'IM AT PARTS Kong remains saddle leader CALGARY (CP) Two bril- liant saddle bronc rides by two veteran United States cowboys Monday not enough to overtake Australian Daryll Kong who took first go-round money in the event at the Calgary Stampede with his 80 marking recorded during the first day of the show. Reigning world champion Bill Smith and Ned Londo. both of Cody, Wyo., recorded marks of 73 Hfonday, good enough to give them a split of .second place go-round money and to keep them in, the running for Ihe Stampede championship. Marty Wood of Fowler, Colo., was the hard-luck competitor of .he infield Monday, drawing a named Buster who would lave been more at homo on a morry-go-roimd, and then on a ro.ridn horse cnnld only cnrour- ngp n few modoralR bucks rie- vigorous spurring, fie end- wl with a of GO. In the bareback event, Joe Alexander marked n 78 on a ironc called Idaho to overtake Ace Berry of Oakdale, Calif., .vho marked a 72 Saturday, and Lake first place go-round money n the event. Alexander is from Wyoming, Ihe Slate dominating he bronc events thus far. In bull riding, most of the competitors hit the dirt Mon- day leaving young Man-in Shoulders of Henryetta, Okla., with the go-round first place money thanks to a 74 ride aboard Yellow Jacket Saturday morning. Wayne Half of Denton, Tex., look second place in the go- round with a mark of 73 he ob- tained Friday on Crankshaft. In calf roping, Mark Shricker of Canon City, Colo., did the job Monday in 11.8 seconds to snatch the first place go-round money from Paul rut.ska of Conisbad, N.M., who recorded a 12.4 Saturday. Two lop Canadians also lurn- ed in fine performances Mon- day to reach (.he pay window In the first go-round. Jim Gladstone of Cardston, and Kenny McLean of Vemon, R.C. came up with Identical Limes of in.5 lo share fourth place in tho go-round with Randy Molk. In stocr wrestling, no ono was about to overtake Merle Much- more of Helena, Mont., who recorded a 3.8 Friday, fl time which held up to take first place go-round money. However, Tom Elliot of Colo- nido Springs, Colo., had a 4.1 Monday good enough for sec- ond place In tho go-round. port, and Dave Syme, a Cana-1 dian, looked good in camp- Run- ning backs Sam Scarber and Gene Foster came to Edmonton late last year and the team began to win. Calvin. Harrcll from Arkansas State, drafted seventh by Miami Dolphins of the National League, is aboard and Jauch says "he'd have gone in the first or second round" had he not hurt his knee in the Senior Bowl. "We think he could be the best back in Canada." Hoy Bell, who scored nine touchdowns and had a 7.2-yard average with Oklahoma Sooners last year, should make it. The offensive line allowed the oppo- sition to get to Lem merman only twice in six games last year and all but re- tired Allen be back. The front four of Hon Forwick, John LaGrone, Greg Pipes and fioy ShaLKo appear set again. Linebacking is solid with only Ken Ferguson fighting for his job with Therman Couch of Iowa State. Five of the six play- ers in the defensive secondary are Canadians. Winnipeg Blue Bombers (7-8- 1) Don Jonas was Canada's outstanding player last year, quarterbacking Ihe most explo- sive offence in the country. Win- nipeg made the WFC playoffs by outscoring its opponents, but had problems keeping the oppo- nents from scoring. Off-season activity has been concentrated on defence. Jim Heighten and Joe Critchlow have it made on the line, but Ibere still are a couple of spots open. Dave Cha- ney, all-America from San Jose, is fighting Mickey Doyle for middle-linebacker and if Doyle makes it, Chaney may move to the outside. Grady Cavness from El Paso may force coach Jim SpaviUl to move Paul Brule from safety to corner. Then there's Paul Williams, val- uable on defence and offence, to Uie point where Spavital is un- certain where to put him. If Williams stays on defence, Bob Kraemer must make it at wing- the 1971 rookie of the year could miss a start- ing spot. Chuck Liebrock should strengthen, the offensive line at guard. With him will be Bob Bob Swift, Bill Frank and Chuck Harrison. Jonas will continue to throw to Jim Thorpe, Paul Markle and Bob Larose and hand off to Mack Herron and Ed Williams. British Columbia Coach Eagle Keys is slicking with quarterback Don Moor- head, but he's taking a long look al Don Bunce, who quarter- backed Stanford to a Hose Bowl victory. And he still has Tom Wilkinson, veteran from To- ronto what has become of Eric Guthrie, im- pressive young Canadian who played at Boise State? Whoever handles the team, he'll have power and speed in Ihe back- field and at the ends. All-Amer- ica fullback Johnny Musso from Alabama will team with Jim Evens on, who gained yards lasl year. Slolback Jim Young a.nd speedy Larry High- baugh will be prime receivers. The problem sliould not be to score, bill lo keep from being scored upon. The down linemen look slrong wllh Greg Findlay and Gary Robinson apparently snl. al entls and with all-Amer- ica Ron Estay and Garrelt Hunsberger inside.
