Only Gordle Howe, now n vice-president with Europeans arc ahead in hockey Ferguson is impressed MONTREAL (CP) John Ferguson. Team Canada assist- ant conch, says his recent trip to Europe has shown him that Canadian hockey no longer sets the standards for the sport. "Brother, have my eyes ever been the former Mont- real Candaian said fol- lowir.g his trip. "European ahead of us, so far you wouldn't believe it." Ferguson made Ihe trip to Moscow and Scandinavia with coach Harry Sinden and oilier Team Canada officials in prepa- ration for the Canada-Russia hockey series in September. "I've been so wrapped up in the Nalional Hockey League for so long I never had a chance to look around.

The Generals, who committed seven errors during the con- test, were also led by Allen at the plate as he stroked a dou- ble and a pair of singles. Bill Christiansen chipped in with a triple and a single while Jack Nicklaus is on the mend COLUJIBUS, OMo (AP) Jack Nicklaus left University Hospital today after an opera- tion on an infected finger, still hopeful he can defend his Pro- fessional Golfers Association title nest week at Birmingham, Mich. Nicklaus was unavailable for comment on his destination, and hospital officials refused to di- vulge any information. However, one source said Nicklaus and his family planned to spend some time here before he decides the status of his PGA title defence. MOBILE HOME Double 24'x40' 3 Bedroom MIDWEST MOBILE HOMES PHONE 327-1986 Lloyd Yamagishi added two doubles. Tom Tamura also stroked out a pair of singles for the Generals while Carpenter blast- ed a three-run homer for the Athletics. Meanwhile the Miner's Lib- rary used only five innings to dispose the Lethbridge Hotel Juniors 10-0 in exhibition play last night. Geurge Sanloni picked up the mound win hurling a two-hitter while Hon Zasadny suffered the loss. Home runs were the call of the day for the Miners as they hammered five round trips. Barry House led the way whalloping two homers while Don Dietzen, George Waselenak and Art Zasadny managed one apiece. Corrido Sanloni also rapped a triple, a double and a single for the Miners. Tom Beresnak poked two singles to spoil Santoni's bid for a no-hitter. The Miners will see action again Sunday as they host Cal- gary Tape Deck twice in Cal- gary Major Men's Fastball League play. The first game gels under way at 2 p.m. while the second will follow at p.m. Both games are set for the Dave Elton ball park. pressed with what I've seen. They know what they're doing." Ferguson said preparations arc under way for "a seven- team European pro league that will want lo play for the Stanley Cup." The league, using players re- cruited from amateur ranks in Europe and Canada, will begin play in 1974, he said. "Arne Stromberg (former Swedish national coach) tells me they've got franchises lined up for Moscow, Prague, Copen- hagen, Helsinki, Zurich, Stock- holm and another town in Swe- den, Goetenberg." IMPRESSED BY SCHOOL Ferguson said what im- pressed Mm most was Strom- berg's hockey school in Copen- hagen. "They've got kids there rotating through a month-long hockey school. Kids from 12 to 18, from Poland, Czechoslova- kia, everywhere. "I've never seen anything like it. The kids spend an hour and a half watching slides of funda- ment hockey, go on the ice for an hour and a half to play, then hack to the classroom to "look at videotapes of themselves to see their mistakes. "The kids are four times as good as our kids at fundamen- tals, just as good skaters as we are. They're better at their age than our best juniors were at the same stage." The hockey school makes use o[ a mechanical device lo fire pucks at the goal. "I've never seen anylhing like said Ferguson. "It fires pucks from the blueline (or (he top corner, the lower corner within four inches accu- racy. From 20 feet, it's right on.

Officials of Herbert A.

Each application is for a pair of tickets at 3 pair Lo one of the four games of the eight- game series to be staged in Canada and Moscow this Sep- tember. The four Canadian1 dates are -Sept. 2, Montreal: Sept. 4, To- ronto; Sept. 6, Winnipeg, and Sept. 8, Vancouver. The applications are being suhdivided into drums for the specified games and the sender of each letter drawn will re- ceive a ccrlificate which, along can be exchanged at the appropriate arena box office for two tickets. To foil counterfeiters, the cer- tificates arc printed on paper similar to that used for cur- rency making. The lottery scheme was initi- aled by Hockey Canada to guar- antee Till Canadians an equal chance of buying tickets for the long awaited Russia Canada hockey confrontation. "Applications came in slowly ai, hul I his week there has Ixyn a huge increase daily 'in Ilin amount of said Knoll, pnhlk- rr-lalion.s officer [or Hockey Canada.

Winnipeg applications lolallnl while ihc Montreal lotiil U'ns Detroit lied Wings of Ihc NHL, is ahead of Ihcin wilh 7Hli. Thursday was a big day [or Ihe new league. Cleveland Ciii- sadcrs announced the signing of goallenrier Gerry Chccvcrs of Ihe Slanlcy Cup champion Bos- Ion Bruins and Gary Young, general manager of Ihe NIIL's California Golden Seals said the Crusaders also had grabbed Paul Shmyr, one ol lus defence- men. Meanwhile Boston defence- man Ted Green signed with New England Whalers, Phila- delphia Blazers announced the signing of no less than 19 play- ers from minor pro and ama- teur ranks and Winnipeg added two minor-leaguers to its roster. A third Bruin, centre Derek Sanderson was given unlil next Wednesday to consider a million offer from the Blazers. TI.'IHD MAN OUT The departure of Cheevers to Ihe Whalers created a third va- cancy on the 35-man roster of Team. Canada, the all-star NHL team which will play an eight- game series againsl Russia in September. Automatically barred by quirement that all team mem- bers sign an NHL contract be- fore reporting to the Canadian training camp, Cheevers joined Hull and Montreal Canadiens defenceman J. C. Tremblay, who has signed with Les Nor- diques, on the ineligible list. If Sanderson signs with the Blazers, he will make a fourth. Hull's former employer, Bill Wirtz of Clu'cago Black Hawks, said he is confident that Team Canada will find competent re- placements. Cheevers, a 31-year-old native of St. Catharines. Ont., who had been with the Boston organiza- tion since 1955, had said earlier he planned to stay with the Bruins. But he told a news con- ference Thursday he accepted the Cleveland offer "for the se- curity of my family." Green joins a solid New Eng- land defence corps that includes Brad Selwood and Rick Ley from Toronto Maple Leafs and Jim Dorcy from New York Rangers. The hard-rock Winnipeg na- tive, who came back last year from a head injury that had ap- parently ended his career, was originally chosen by (he Jels in Ihe WHA draft but negotiated his release to join the Whalers. The loss of Shmyr, who joined the Seals last winter from Chi- cago, was conceded by Young although the Crusaders have not yet announced his signing. The California general manager said Cleveland offered the 26-year- old defenceman for two years as against a counter-offer of a year from Seals owner Charles 0. Finley. NO SURPRISE The return of Richard to the game he dominated for most of his 18 years with the Canadiens was widely expected after he appeared at a news conference last week to announce Trem- blay's signing with Les Nor- diques. A tempestuous right winger in his playing days, his recent hockey had been confined to old-timers1 teams and occa- sional refereeing assignments in exhibition games. Les Nordiques also announced that the Rocket will coach an all-star WHA team which is ex- pected to play an exhibition game against the Czech national squad, current world amateur champions, next January. Centre Cal Swenson, a 35-goal man wilh Tulsa Oilers of the Central League last season, and defenceman Steve Cuddie, a two-year pro from Cincinnati Swords of I lie American League, were the two new Win- nipeg recruits. The Blazers, while awaiting Sanderson's decision, scooped up their 19 players from Iho American nnd Western leagues and amateur ranks. Sanderson's lawyer, Boh Woolf, described their offer as "ullerly fantastic" and former Druin Johnny McKemic, the team's newly-signed player- coach, said his old team-male would be "insane" lo turn it down. FORT MACLEOD FISH AND GAME Asso- ciation is becoming one of the more active groups of its kind in the south. The organization stocked 30 young, wild turkeys the past week. Previously it had stocked 17 adult1 Jbirds in the district. The Xish and wildlife branch has said it will not stock any small numbers of birds for the rest of this year. The fish and wildlife boys hope that a biologist can be obtained to study the birds next summer. THE LETHBRIDGE TRAP CLUB will hold its fourth annual trophy shoot Aug. 13 and 14. The shoot Iiu3 been authorized by the American Trap Associa- tion. On Aug. 12, there will be some preliminary sliooting and Events 1 and 2 will be shot off. On Sun- day, Aug. 13, Events 3 and 4 will be shot off. Shells, targets and lunch -will be available at the grounds. Activity gets under way at 10 a.m. each day. WHILE STREAMS in the mountainous west country became less productive during the past week, the lakes showed definite signs of improvement. The streams rose and became roiled as a result of the showers and rain. But, lakes like Beauvais, Police, Mami, Heninger and Reesor slowed consid- erably. Henlnger made a strong spurt back last weekend. In the Oldman River, it's goldeye time again. Problem is there are five or more suckers showing up for very goldeye taken. Worms continue to be the best bait. Showers and rain shot up the level of the water in the river and as a result few pools have formed. SEVERAL CHANGES were made in the 1972 hunting regulations which were recently announced. The new big game hunting regulations allow a shoot- er to purchase a licence for any of the following three: moose, elk, whitetail deer, mule deer, trophy sheep and caribou. However, a shooter may not take both an elk and a moose during the course of a year. All hunters may still apply for all special licences issued on a controlled, draw basis. Another change is designed to enhance the hunt- ing experience. It says trail bikes and all-terrain vehicles, such as snow vehicles, may not be used in the mountain zones, all foothills and parkland zones and the prairie region south of Highway 16, from mid- night to noon of each day during the hunting season. This restriction does not apply to the regular four- wheel drive vehicles. Other innovations include a limited season for mountain goats, a reinstated season for elk in the Ya-ha-tinda and Corners area, a delayed season for grey geese in southern Alberta and a limited season on hen pheasants. Some open season dates have been shifted so that hunting pressure is more evenly distributed throughout the province.
