Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - July 20, 1972, Lethbridge, Alberta IHE lETHBRIDCe HERALD Thursday, July 20, 1971 Red Fischer begins six-part story today What is Russian reaction to upcoming series? MOSCOW Special Gorky Street on a summer night is small cars careening at breakneck speed on a six-lane avenue. It is the drone o[ chatter of the young, the bemused look ot a tourist, and the natives' stares at the tourist. It is the heat that clines like lovers. It is wall-to-wall people. Gokry is a postcard street, with new and shining buildings swallowing the people, but (lie parade is an endless out. One group no sooner disappears than another appears, as if on signal. Where do they come from? Alexander Grinberg was on Gorky Street last night. He is 28 and drives a truck in tlu's city. He is broad-shouldered, with ihick, black hair that is slicked down. His eyes are dark. He wears a grey, checked shirt and grey trousers, neatly press- ed. Driver Grinberg, Wic aJI of 'ic others who stopped for mo- ments to talk freely on Gorky Street, had heard about the Canada-Soviet hockey series. "I think the chances of the earns are exactly the I he said. "I'm a fan of my team and I hope that our fellows will play well. "I would hope (hat out ot the eight games, our fellows would win a good tliree, even though I know Die Canadians are a very serious team because they have vrey strong players- Bob- by Hull Bobby Orr they are colossal players, I know, but we have players like that too. Firsov, Malfsev, Khar- lamov very strong players. "Still, I am lold Ihe profes- sionals are something special and that is why we shall suf- fer." Sasha Polrosyan is 25. He is an artist. He is not, like driver Grinberg, a man of the out- doors, so the face is pale, the hair is sandy-colored. The lips thin and the jaw is pointed. He smiles easily. 'I think the chances of the Canadians are a great deal bel- ter than the Soviet team. They arc substantially greater. Nat- urally, professionals are strong- ir than amateurs, llm Rus- sians are strong as amateurs, but players like Gordie Howe nad Stanislas Mikita they are very, very strong." Artist Petrosyan is nol to blame because he doesn't know that Gordie Howe is retired and that Stanislas Mikila was nol named to Team Canada, prob ably because he was not born in Canada. Stan Mikila, the Chicago slar, would be happy to know, though, that the name is known on Street, which is a long, long way and several cultures apart from State Street, "lhal great slreel." losif Green is a lawyer from Baku on Ihe Caspian sea. He walks alone on Gorky Slreel, his white shirt open at the col- lar, his blue trousers slightly baggy al the knees. He is a stocky man, with a five o'clock shadow (Moscow lime) on his chin. "I understand a liltle English very well I told h i m. "How do you lliinlt the Soviet team will do against the Can- adians in their series? As you know, (hey arc playing four games in Canada and four in Moscow.1' "The match will he said. "True, but how many games will the Soviets win? How many do you expect they will losif, the lawyer, hesitates. Then he says: "I think I ask to Russian. He appears a little embarrassed and then the words pour from him in his own language with the con- fidence of the professional man. "I think the games between Canada and Russia I am a fan of the Canadians. Tn re- cent years, In games in the Olympic tournaments that took place in Prague and in other cities, I think that our team hod a lot of luck. "Despite their good playing, they were fortunate to win. I tliink there were kind of pre- destined circumstances that al- lowed them to win, but against professionals from Canada, this will not happen. I think that Canada will win the ma- jority of the games, of course." The chatter of a pedestrian on Gorky Street to a man who is obviously a stranger lo l.hc city brings other people toward them by lemming-like instinct. They listen and they watch and they smile. They whisper among themselves and then a i tall, thin man with a hint of a beard makes a comment. "What did you say? What is it you think about Ihe hockey A grin lighls up Ihe face of Ihe intruder. Then he moves hack rapidly aclually hops Ihree or four steps and says: "I would like In speak about chess." "We arc talking about hock- ey." The lull, Ihin man laughs and retreats a few more steps and lingers there, his head in- clined trying to catch the last few words of losif. "The said losif, "are too strong. As profes- sionals they are too strong." The intruder shakes his head, laughs sharply, then turns and disappears into the masses. Viktor Nikolayevich Kostyu- kov has chosen Ihis nighl lo walk along Gorky Slreet with his co-worker, Vyacheslav Sek- geyevich Smirnov. Factory worker Viktor Nikotayevich is pale, like the artisl. He hasn'l seen too much sun, hut the face is strong, they eyes alert, the jaw square. He wears an or- ange shirt and grey trousers. The belt is pinched tightly around his waist. At first, he doesn't want to mention his name, but the word "Kanadski" puts him al case. "We are Soviel he says, "and naturally we root for our team. The series should end 5-5." "There arc only eight games in the series." "In that case, it should er.d Koslyukov says. "I tlon't says his friend Vyacheslav. "I think we should win six rait of the eight games. We are good. Very good." 'LET THEM WIN' Kostyukov shakes his head vigorously. "In as much as the home of hockey is Canada, we have lo lei Ihe Canadians he says to his friend. His friend laughs al Ihe suggeslion and Kost- yuliov joins in. They seem lo be enjoying this very much. Koslyukov poinls (he inter- viewer and a lady who is stand- ing nearby Kays: "He is the Canadian Ozerov." (Ozerov ap- parently supporls commentator in Moscow.)
