Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - July 18, 1972, Lethbridge, Alberta THE LETHBRIDGE HERALD Tutjday, July IB, 1972 A political move on Prime Ministers part? Eagieson puts blame on Pierre Trudeau By KD SIMON Canadian Tress Slalf Wrilcr M old political adversary look a .run at Prime Minister Trudeau Tor being Lhc Ihii-d man, or possibly Ihe (oiirlli or (illh, to join tlie light over Bobby Hull's participation in Ihe Canada-Hussia hockey scr- ies next September. "The [rouble started when Trudeau got said Alan .liaglcson, legal counsel for real Monday night before his departure tor Moscow with number of its more prominent coach Harry Sindcn and other Team Canada officials to work out details of the four games to be played in the Soviet capital, Eaglcson said the Liberal prime the National Hockey League Players' Association and for members and a leading figure in Ihe Progressive Conservative party. At a news conference in Mont- Helps gain popular iiilcnialional support Boxing a tool for politics MEXICO Cm7 (AP) Mili- tary government in some Latin American countries have de- cided to back professional hox- ing as a means of winning popu- lar international support, says a high ranking world boxing offi- cial. Ramon Velazquez, president of the World Boxing Council, ssid the Brazilian and Panama- nian regimes are Hie most inter- ested in promoling boxers on an inlcrnafional level at Ihe j present lime. The WBC, with headquarters in Mexico, is one of several or- ganizations that govern the sport. Another is the World Box- ing Association with headquar- ters in the United Stales. The base of the WBC coincides with the nationality of its president. Velazquez said that while he was in Brazil before the junior ivelterweight championship fight between Italian Bruno Ar- can and Brazil's Joao Henrique, "President Garraslazu Medici required daily reports on the physical condition of Henrique and his possibilities o[ defeating Henrique lost the fight by a knockout June 10 in Rome. Brazilian authorities view fa- vorably the creation of a South American Boxing Federation .that Brazilian promoters are trying to organize and that could become affiliated with the WBC, Velazquez said. PANAMA ACTIVE But probably the most spec- tacular case of intervention in professional boxing in Latin America is in the government headed by Panamanian strong- man General Omar Torrljos. Unlike Brazil, which has few current boxing hopes. Panama- nians recently won two world titles acd have chances for two more in the next six weeks. Eoberto Duran recently took the lightweight title from Ken Buchanan of Scotland. In March, Alfonso (Peppermint) Frazier won the WBA junior welterweight crown, when he defeated Nicolino Locche of Ar- gentina. Enrique Finder of Panama will try July 29 to take the ban- tamweight championship from Mexican Rafael Hen-era in Pan- ama City. Then Ernesto (Nalo) Marcel will fight Venezuelan Antonio Gomez in Venezuela, for the WBA featherweight crown Aug. 19. The Panamanian government has participated in fight promo- tion through the National Insti- tute of Culture and Sports which it created in 1970. The organization promoted the Frazer-Locche bout and bid for the Duran-Buchanan match. Buchanan, however, decided to fight in New York. The group also organized the Pinder-Herrera fight with a purse for the champion, the most lucrative a Mexican boxer in tlie lighter-weight cate- gories ever has received. When a Panamanian baxer fights in a championship bout outside the country the govern- ment pays, partially or totally, for live television transmission to Panama. The government sponsored such transmissions twice in June, when Panamanian Orland A mores unsuccessfully fought Mnsao Ohba for tlie flyweight title in Tokyo, and when Duran faced Buchanan. As part of an extensive sports stimulation program the Torijos government lias authorized a life-long pension of monthly for every retired Panamanian athlete who has won a world title. The first to collect the pension was Ismacl Laguna, two-time lightweight champion. SUFFERS COLLAPSED LUNG-lcs Angeles Rams quarter- back Roman Gabriel, shown working out in 1969 when he was voted the Nalional Foolball league's Most Valu- able Player, suffered a collapsed lung during a training session for the Rams at Long Beach, Calif., Monday. The veteran signal caller was hospitalized and taken 10 sur- gery for inserlion of a tube in the lung. (AP Wirephoto) Gaylord Perry is home free DETROIT (AP) Manager Chuck Tanner ol Chicago White Sox says Gaylord Perry is "home free all year" be- cause of a decision rejecting a formal White Sox protest against the Cleveland pitch- er's alleged "grease ball." "I have to abide by what the league president has Tanner said Monday night in Detroit, after his team lost 3-1 lo the Tigers. Earlier in the day, Ameri- can League President Joe Cronin disallowed the protest, made during a game against the Indians at Cleveland July 10. In their report lo Cronin, the four umpires said they did not detect any foreign sub- stance on tlie balls that Perry used in hurling a four-hit, 2-1 triumph over Chicago. "The umpires didn't think he was throwing an illegal pitch." Tar.ner said. "As far as I'm concerned. Perry's home free all year." "It was so obvious, because o! what the ball was doing, thai il wasn't a natural pitch he WES getting the batters out he said. "I honestly thought we could win the Tan- ner said. I thought by filing a protest they Uhe AL fronl office) had to tell us one way or another if he was throwing an illegal pitch." JUNIOR LACROSSE HENDERSON ARENA "THE FASTEST GAME ON TWO FEET" TABER EBONY HAWKS vs. LETHBRIDGE NATIVE SONS Tuesday, July 18 p.m. Adultl St.00 12 and Under Free Studenh and Peniionen Lung fails Roman By THE ASSOCIATED PRESS Roman Gabriel's lung col- lapsed least temporar- deflated the quarter- backing strength of Los Angeles Rams. Gabriel, veteran of 10 Na- lional Foolball League seasons and star quarterback of the Los Angeles club sold five days ago for million- was taken to hospital Monday as the first major casualty of pre-season training. His condition was diagnosed as a spontaneous of the right condition caused by rupturing of a small air cyst at the top of the lung. The attending physician said the condition could afflict any healthy individual, regardless of physical activity. Gabriel had beer, firing passes in the first drill of veteran play- ers at the Rams' training camp when he said: "I don't think I can practise any longer. I can't breathe." I First reports indicated Ga- briel could be out from five weeks to the entire season. Later reports, however, said the former North Carolina standout could return to action within a month. QB SINCE 1965 Honored as the Most Valuable Player in the NFL in 1969, Ga- briel, 31, has led the Rams on the field since 1965 and has recorded completions in attempts for yards and 142 touchdowns. In Gabriel's absence, the sig- nal-calling burdens have been delegated to reserves John Wal- ton and Jerry Rhome. Elsewhere around pro foot- ball, Speedy Duncan, the NFL's leading punt returner last sea- son, was the only veteran who failed to report to Washington Redskins' training quarters. Duncan will be fined day unless he produces a valid rea- son for his absence. Duane Thomas, the elusive, fleet-footed running back who sparked Dallas' drive to the Super Bowl championship last season, was still missing from the Cowboys' camp. Also absent was another Thomas i 11 Thomas, the team's No. 1 draft selection from Boston College, who hasn't yet signed a con- tract. minister's intervention in the dispute was a political move. Mr. Trudeau has appealed to NHL president Clarence Camp- bell and other interested parties to abandon their insistence that eligibility to join Team Canada be restricted to players who have signed an NHL contract when the team's training camp opens Aug. 13. Since Hull has left Chicago Black Hawks to sign a 52.5 mil- Uon contract as playing coach of Winnipeg Jets of the World Hockey Association, the require- ment effectively bars him from participating in the eight-game series. HINTS AT SOLUTION Eagieson hinted that a solu- tion might be worked out "if everybody cools their heels and things get to simmer but added that it would lie unwise to attempt to force Ihe NHL to lift its ban on Hull. The laywer said some NHL governors might withdraw per- mission for their players to join Ihe leam if they were forced to accept Hull. In that event, the league would no longer be re- sponsible for any injuries suf- fered by players who defied the ban. "I'm not going to advise any of my friends to play under those he said. In Montreal and at an earlier conference in Toronto, Sinden said he invited Hull to join the team, despite the apparent bar- rier to his participation, be- cause "I picked the best team I possibly could and I hope all of them will be able to play." In case Sinden winds up one left-winger short, he has an offer of help from a man who packs a harder shot than Hull, ALREADY ASSISTANT John Ferguson, whose best shots during an eight-year car- eer with Montreal Canadiens were fired at an opponent's cliin, already is associated with the team as Sinden's assistant coach. "I'm going to try to make the said Ferguson, who was ouLscored by Hull approxi' mately four to one but logged twice as much penally time in his eight NHL years as Hull has in 15. NHL president Campbell, who lias often summoned Ferguson and other malefactors to discuss mailers of mutual interesl, had less success in setting up a meeting with Prime Minister Trudeau. After the prime minister sent a telegram on Hull's behalf, Campbell asked for an opportu- nity to clarify the issues in- volved. A spokesman for the prime minister said Mr. Trudeau felt a meeting with the NHL president would not solve the problem and suggested that Campbell get to- gether with Hockey Canada, the federally-supported organization that arranged the series. CAMPBELL CRITICAL In view of the prime minis- ter's telegram, a meeting would have been only "minimum cour- Campbell said. Prospective travellers to Mos- cow for the series face a prob- lem of only minimum accom- modation. Air Canada officials, who plan to fly almost Canadians to Ihe Soviet Union, say they have plenty of aircraft and more than enough hockey tickets but are having Irouble lining up hotel space for Ihe 10-day excursion. The airline is negotiating for more rooms but is running into difficulty because Moscow boasts only Iwo or Ihree large holds. NO WAY TO TREAT A LADY Ride 'em, Sheila. And lhal she did.
