Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - July 24, 1973, Lethbridge, Alberta 6 THE LETHMIDGE HERALD Tumdoy, July 24, Southern Alberta Summer Games open Wednesday for four days All is quiet in Raymond, but not for long By PAT SULLIVAN Herald Sports Editor It is now just a matter of lighting the torch and putting nearly athletes through their paces. Sounds easy, doesn't it? Ac- tually it's not. What it is is the countdown to the start of the 1973 Southern Alberta Summer Games which get under way Wednesday morn- ing in Raymond. For the past three months teas of thousands of southern Albertans having been pre- paring thmselves for their very own Olympics. It will all be worth the effort when the final curtain falls on the Raymond show, Saturday evening. The idea of a Southern AI- Pearce sinks Bombers REGINA (CP) Bob Pearce scored as a quarterback, wide receiver and punter to lift Sas- katchewan Roughriders to a 22- 13 victory Monday over Winni- peg Blue Bombers in the final Western Football Conference exhibition game for both teams. Pearce, a veteran import, caught a 10-yard pass from Ron Lancaster for a second- quarter touchdown and scram- bled for a 19-yard score when be was shifted to quarterback in the third quarter. He also punted a 51-yard single. The other Saskatchewan touchdown was scored by rookie Canadian de f e n sive back Lome Richardson on 48 yard return of an inter- cepted pass in the opening min- utes of the game. Jack Abend- schan converted all the touch- downs. Pearce almost scored again on the last play of the game as he ran from his quarterback po- sition for 26 yards before being stopped short of the Winnipeg goal. All Winnipeg's scoring came in the first half, with Don Jonas connecting on field goals from the 32 and 15 and throwing a 25- yard touchdown pass to Pete Bibbins. FOUR INTERCEPTED Saskatchewan threw up a strong pass defence, picking off three passes by Jonas and one by Tommy Pharr. Eichardson snatched two and Lewis Cook and Jim Walter grabbed the others. After Richardson's touchdown on Jonas' first intercepted pass the veteran Winnipeg quarter- back withstood a strong Sas- katchewan rush to move tbe Blue Bombers into field goal po- sition to narrow tbe score to 8-3 after 15 minutes. Cook intercepted a Jonas toss at midfield early in the second quarter and returned the ball to Winnipeg 25. Lancaster who completed nine of 14 passes for 110 yards in his first-half ap- pearance, threw 15 yards to Toin Caznpana and then 10 to Pearce for tbe touchdown. Jonas' 15-yard field goal at of the second quarter nar- rowed Saskatchewan's edge to 15-6 andn tbe Blue Bombers scored their only touchdown with 10 seconds remaining in the half on the Joaas-to-Ribbins berta Summer Games be- came a reality in 1970 when Pincher Creek hosted the first such Games. From there the Games torch and flag moved to Claresholm and on to Bow Island. For this the fourth year, Raymond has the honor of showing their hospitality to the rest of the south. In year one better than young and old south Alber- tans took part. At Claresholm the number grew to just over Bow Island was packed tight with almost 000 and now more than are expected to converge on Raymond for four days. 'The opening ceremonies for the 1973 edition of the Games will begin at nine o'clock Wednesday morning with at least one half of the ath- letes on hand. Wednesday's parade of ath- letes will travel through town, ending at the swimming pool where the diving and swim- ming events will be staged. Mr. Les Usher, deputy min- ister of Youth, Culture and Recreation, will officially de- clare the Games open. The Games torch will be lit at that time. Raymond Riding Club is responsible for bring- ing the torch from Bow Island. The planning and adminis- trative committee for the 1973 Games includes chairman Jim Blumell, recreation dir- ectors Roy Blais, Leo Bour- assa Jr., and Morley Roelofs along with board member Joy Atkinson. Max Gibb will act as committee consultant. In addition to the above few, hundreds of people, or- ganizers and institutions provide invaluable assistance to the running and forming of the Games each year. Ten regions will participate in 10 sports. Heading the list of regions is Municipal District of Card- ston, M.D, of Pincher Creek and Peigan Reserve, M.D. of Willow Creek and the M.D. of Taber. Also set to com- pete are the City of Leth- bridge, Blood Reserve and the counties of Forty Mile, Lethbridge and Warner, as well as the Crowsnest Pass. This year's sports include track and field, swimming and diving, archery, trap shooting, small bore, eques- trian, horseshoes, slow pitch, tennis and golf. Two special golf classes are scheduled as part of the Games. Friday at nine o'clock has been set aside for the 55- plus years of age group while Saturday at the same time the youngsters of the ages 45- 54 take part. Grass greens and plenty of water have turned the Raymond Golf Course into aa ideal setting for the golfers. The Games officials have left no rocks unturned. Faci- lities for the accommodation of the athletes have been ar- ranged in the junior and sen- ior high schools where each region will have a room. The senior high school will be used for male billets and fre junior for the gals. In aM- Quiet for now The Southern Alberta Summer Games torch stands untit beside the Raymond swimmng poo! Monday. Wed- nesday, however, the torch will be lit and the 1973 Sum- mer Games will be under way with more than athletes taking part in the four-day show. Wall of Fame might get snubbed back pass.

Aaron feels snubbed by Kuhn KANSAS CITY (AP) Hank Aaron, in a combative mood on the eve of the 44th Ail-Star game, took on the commis- sioner of baseball and the Hall of Fame Monday. The Atlanta Braves' slugger, speaking at a news conference at Royals Stadium, first ex- pressed his displeasure about what he considered a snub from Commissioner Bowie Kuhn. "I didn't receive a telegram from the commissioner when I hit my 700th home said Aaron. "National League Presi- dent Chub Feeney sent me a telegram after I hit it. I would think that the commissioner would send one too." Aaron was reminded by a re- porter that it wasn't common for a man to hit TOO home runs. CHASING RUTH And Aaron, who's attempting to eclipse Babe Ruth's career record of 714, answered with a smile: "I know, that's why the com- misioner should have sent the Kuhn, informed of Aaron's comments while in Kansas City "or Tuesday's Ail-Star game, as I am. sure he knows I am one of his biggest rooters. I want to lead the baseball cele- bration when he hits 714 and 715." The Atlanta star also re- ANDY CAPP had this reaction: "I'm certainly sorry that Elenry Aaron was disappointed j I'DUKEAVJORD WITH "fOU, MISTER vealed that he might not send the 700th home run ball to the Hall of Fame in Cooperstown, N.Y. He said he had second thoughts about it because of what be considered past snubs by the Hall. "I sent the Han my 500th home run ball and my 600th borne run ban and they never even mentioned it in their bro- said Aaron. "I don't know if FU let them have tins one. I have to think about ft." BALL IN SAFE The baseball, returned to Aa- ron after be bit k into the left field seats at Atlanta Stadium Saturday, currently rests in "a said Hammerin' Hank. Aaron said he sent the bat with which be slugged No. 700 to Louisville, apparently for promotional use by the com- pany. Aaron, who claimed he's faced little pressure trying to break Ruth's record, also took time to talk about the president of the United States. When asked if President Nixon sent him a telegram after he hit Ms 700th home run, be said. "No. But I guess be; has other things to think about! these days." tion, one major outlet in the arena will serve basic meals to the athletes and spectators during the Games. Conces- sion stands will also fre- quent the areas of competi- tion. I sat in on the organization of the first Southern Alberta Summer Games. The motto at the tune was "mass par- ticipation." It can be said that in four years the Games have followed the course of mass participation to the letter. And although the Southern Alberta Summer Games' prime objective is to encour- age mass participation and social involvement for every- one, its secondary concern is with providing continued op- portunity and challenge for those with real desire and abi- lity. Therefore, the "Games" are also a portion of a total "Sports Development Pro- The basic foundation of the annual Summer Games can be broken into four steps Step one: A novice com- petition structure, for both Summer and Winter-Games, which is open to all, starts at the local level, and en- courages mass participation, then regional training and competition and then area competition. Step two: A program of special training and coach- ing for those athletes who have shown well in the' Games themselves other area competition and who have the desire to par- ticipate in advanced training. Step three: A program which brings together Me top competitors' and gives them the opportunity to asso- ciate with one another for continued training and ing; makes them aware of participation and of higher competition such as Class A or open competition, for example provincial, national and international'competition and special clinics. Step four A program for training coaches, officials and administrators. You can't put into words all that is involved in staging a Southern Alberta Summer Games. One must see it first hand to appreciate it and Raymond is the scene of the action Wednesday through Saturday. Anderson wants win, no more, no less KANSAS CITY (AP) An undaunted Dick Williams and a determined Sparky Anderson reflect the intensive mood oi tonight's 44th all-star baseball game at posh Royals Stadium. Williams left a hospital bed after a recent appendectomy to lead the American League team while National League Manager Anderson vows: "I'm here for just one win." The setting is particularly dramatic, considering that all- star games in the past have been brushed off by some play- ers as insignificant exhibitions. But Anderson has expressed a fierce desire to beat the Ameri- can League in the mid-summer classic. Til try to figure out what moves Williams will be making, and everybody on my staff will be ready to help says the Cincinnati Reds' manager. A sellout crowd of more than wiU be on hand at base- ball's newest park while mil- lions more watch the star- studded affair on television, in- cluding CBC viewers in Canada, me time is p.m. M.D.T. WANTS A CHANGE Anderson isn't taking this game lightly for a reason. He feels he has something to prove. 'Td like to be on the winning side for a says Ander- son, who has lost two World Series and was the losing man- ager in the 1971 all-star game at Detroit. "That's why I picked some of the ballplayers I picked. I wanted guys who could come off the bench and help me win. "I'm not here to get players into the game. I'm not here to make everybody happy. I'm not here to change the players in my lineup. I'm here to win. That's the only thing I have in mind." If Anderson wants this game, so does Williams, Oakland A's manager. He underwent sur- gery last Thursday and is al- ready back on the job. "He's the kind of manager who wants to be in there all the said Oakland's Jim (Cat- fish) Hunter, the American League's starting pitcher. "I wouldn't be surprised if he caned the snots over the tele- phone from Jos hospital bed last week when coach (Irv) Noren managed the team." Along with the managers, the players have shown an uncom- mon competitive desire. Both Uiird baseman Ron Santo of Chicago Cubs and shortstop Chris Speier of San Francisco Giants were injured last week, but will be in the Na- tional League's starting lineup. And Atlanta Braves' star Hank Aaron expressed professional pride when be said: "I would like to play as long as Sparky will let me. I'll play and will do anything that will help us win." Hunter, a 15-game winner, will face Rick Wise of St. Louis Cardinals in an attempt to cut into-the National League's 24-18 lead in the series which started back in 1933. There has been one tie in all-star competition. Wise said he'd pitch the American League hitters "with an old and tight and low and away." PICKS HIS SPOTS "I try to bit spots no matter whether the batter is left- handed or said the Cardinal right-hander. Oakland shortstop Bert Camp- aneris will lead off for the American League, followed by left-handed hitter Rod Carew of Minnesota Twins, the team's second baseman. First baseman John Maybeny of Kansas City Royals and right fielder Reggie Jackson of Oakland, the 34 bit- ters, are both left-handed. After centrefielder Amos Otis of the Royals, the No. 5 Mtter, comes lefty Bobby- Murcer of New York Yankees. He'll play left field. Catcher Carlton JPisk of Boston Red Sox will be No. 7 in the batting order, followed by third baseman Brooks Robinson of Baltimore Orioles and Hunter. Left fielder Pete Rose and second baseman Joe Morgan of Cincinnati Reds will bat 1-2 in the National League order. Cen- trefielder Cesar Cedeno of Houston Astros, first baseman Aaron and right fielder BiHy Williams of the Cubs will hit 3- 4-5 for the National, The rest of the order includes Cincinnati catcher Johnny Bench, Santo, Speier and Wise.
