Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - July 22, 1972, Lethbridge, Alberta Saturday, July 22, 1972 THE LFTHBRIDGS HKIAIO 11 Part three of Red Fisher's series from Moscow on Canada versus Soviets Are Russians building to challenge for coveted Stanley Cup? la this forthcom- ing Canada-Soviet scries the first glimmer of bigger and more dramatic challenges by the Soviet and other European teams? Like a challenge for the professionals' very own all- day lollipop, the Stanley Cup? Put It this way: the Soviets aren't yet shopping around for Russian oil to polish up the tro- phy. But they're asking ques- tions, and that Is a light year ahead of where they were be- fore this series became reality- Or how they thought. Andrey Starovoytov is prob- ably as important a hockey of- ficial as there Is in the Soviet Union. The hair is white, and the working clothes are a crin- kled while T-shirt, ill-fitting trousers and scuffed black shoes held together by a pierc- ing stare. Most of you may know thai It is not realJy a simple matter to rub noses with officials of some importance in Ihe U.S.S.R. In Andrey's case, it wasn't that difficult. What you do Is ar- range an appointment with ANOTHER hockey official. Add a teaspoonful of sugar, a gal- lon of pleas and pleose and pa- lience, and not only is the hoc- key official there on fairly good time, but Andrey. with his crinkled white T-shirt and piercing stare is there. If there are libs to be rehearsed, Andrey wants them to be his. The people around him hold him in awe here. They seem lo be generally pleased that he Is the president of the Inter- national Referees' Commission, a sort of high-grade Scotty Morrison. Let's face it: the guy deserves it. He refereed in 11 World Championships and was voted the best referee three times but that has nothing to do with It. But surviving 11 World No award or title is too lofty for a man with such staying power. HAS A TITLE The title that really counts, though, is General Secretary of the U.S.S.R. Hockey Federa- tion. That's like a Clarence Campbell with muscle. You want Bomelhing done? See An- drey. Flans to be made? An- drey Is your man or, at least, get his A. S. scribbled on the blueprint. Does the Soviet Un- ion challenge Canada in an eight-game scries? If Staro- voytov eays nyet, forget it This is Starovoytov turning it around a s per- haps only he can in what was to have been a meeting of minds aimed at picking through the forest of proverbs, platitudes rules he found there could be traced back to donations from the National Hockey League.

"Not only the Soviets, of course. The Czechs. The Swedes Earlier, we had talked a lot aboul Ihe forthcoming Soviel- Canada series, wliich is a fairly easy thing to do when among the masses are people like Harry Sinden, John Ferguson, Alan Eagleson, and all of the other birds. One tiling Is clear: "Would the Canadian people I the Soviets are in this series because they want to be there. And nothing anyone, including International Ice Hockey Fed- eration president Bunny Ahearne, chooses to say and has said, would discourage the Soviets from believing their program toward first-class rat- ing at the world level, Includ- ing professionals, Is in harmony with Ihe tunes. "Mr. he said, "has had very complicated and diffi- cult relations with the Cana- dians. However, we played i lot with Canadian amateur learns and as far as I'm concerned, he did nol really want lo pre- venl this series. He could not prevent these games. They are very necessary lor Ihe Sovlel Union and for Canada, I think. Mr. Ahearne would not want to prevent something thai is very necessary. The time is now." Outwardly, there doesn't ap- pear to be an urgency fur a series with Canada, from the So- viet viewpoint. But it's Ihere. In everything this General Secre- tary Bays, there is importance atlached to Ihe series. Subtle references here and there, but they're there. "Why this year? Why not last ho asks. There are sev- eral sides lo this question. Sev- eral grains. First of all, the game was born in your country. We thought we should do every- thing possible for Canada to come back lo world hockey. We have never had any dlspule with your leaders. The only time, I suppose, that there was some Irouble was when your leaders tried to impose a sched- ule of games on us In 1970 thet was not convenient for us. A series like this one is useful to both sides. Bui does this mean that in Ihe fulure, we will allow the professionals lo play in the World Championships? We are studying the question.

Moore and Jewell shared Fri- day's spotlight before better than bettors who wagered during the nine-race card. For the second day in a row Miss Moore, of Spokane, Wash., won the featured race. Thurs- day she won aboard Knute K for Mike Wilson of Spokane. Friday, the attractive young blonde piloted Curragh Rhythm to an upset victory in the eighth race, the featured City Packers race. With Moore nandling the four- year-old winner Curragh Rhy- thm, a 14-1 longshot, nipped Cariboo Red at the finish line. Cariboo Red was ridden by Jack Troute. The victory was worth S700 lo Marshall Willard of Milo, Alberta. In winning Curragh Rhythm paid S32 f o r a win ticket the best single payoff of Ihe meet. Jewell rode three consecutive winners Friday in a day that began like it was all his. He rode Romo Brandy in the first and then followed with a victory in the second atop Doc Mac. The combination of Jewell's first two wins was worth on Ihe daily dou- ble. His third win was aboard Mystic Miser in the third. Jew- ell and his mount just man- aged lo nip Symbaoe, with Karen Campbell riding, at the finish line. Sharon Willis, the fourth fe- male jockey riding in the meet this year, won Ihe fourth race, one that had an inquiry upheld. Hope You Hurry had finished third behind Gallant Kin, rid- den by Willis, and Joey's Arches with Mark Jensen up. Baril, the jockey on Hope You Hurry laid a claim of foul against Jensen and it was upheld moving Joey's Arches to fifth place and Hope You Hurry lo second. The combination of Gallant Kin and Hope You Hurry paid an 5D.20 quinella. In Friday's exactor Miss Moore, on Mainly Cloudy and Miss Campbell on Silver Sim- on, finished one-two for a payoff. The last quinella of the day was worth when Miss Campbell, riding Winning Skip finished ahead of No Work, with jockey Jack Troute up. in April when the World Cham- pionships are held in Moscow. It is a question." You should know that Andrej Starovoytov has heard that some of the professionals are inclined lo raise Iheir elbows a little high. He has also heard lhal some of Ihe super lalenls have been known lo throw i knuckle or Iwo in anger, and he has taken steps to avert that by insisting and it will done lhal anyone who is in a fight would be dispatched from the game for good. And this: anyone who is banished from the game for fighting leaves his team shorthanded for 10 minutes. Are you listening Wayne Cashman? Isn't it love- ly, J. C. Superstar? "On the says Star- ovoytov, "it is a difficult one lo give a one-word answer. We understand that the profession- als like Bobby Orr, Bobby Hull, Jean Belivcuu never fight. They play. We understand that hockey is a tough game. We have a song in Russia: "Only real men can play real hoc- key." There are a lot of Honored Sport Masters on the Soviet team Starovoytov has assem- bled. But is there a leader? Is there an Orr or a Brad Park or anyone eko who can take charge? "We have slars in each peri- he smiles.
