Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - June 2, 1972, Lethbridge, Alberta
Friday, Juno 1972 THI LETHMIDCI HBtAlO 9 AND DISTRICT is to have a new park! The idea came into being at a meeting of the Coaldale Fish and Game Association with W. D. Geldert, Jim McQuillan and Earl Foxall among the key instigators. That was more than three years ago. Initially, the undertaking was envisaged as a trout pond for Coaldale and district anglers. With the stocking of rainbow trout becoming such a success in in many other communities of southern Alberta, why shouldn't Coaldale and district have its own? Even though the bulk of the project is still on paper it has grown considerably in size and purpose since it was originally conceived. The trout pond is now to form a part of a 51- acre park. It is located along an old lake bottom one mile west and 3% miles south of the Readymade School; or, two miles south, five miles east, miles south on the road leading south at the west end of Coaldale. The County of Lethbridge with its recreational board has now thrown its support behind the project. An earth dam has been completed. It's deepest spots are to be in the 20 to 22-foot range. The lake itself is to take up some 25 acres of the total area. This is about one-third the size of Hender- son Lake in the city, with about 50 per cent more depth in the deepest areas. AT PRESENT a general plan is being prepared for the park by the Oldman River Regional Planning Commission. The department of agriculture is helping as an advisor on greenery and shelterbelts. There are to be individual and community camp kitchen setups, along with camping areas. The fed- eral government has allocated the project under the summer youth employment program. The project is near the main Chin Lake canal of the St. Mary River Irrigation Project. Gravelling and rip-rapping are required for the dam before water can be turned in. This is the first park set-up of its kind for Coal- dale since the old Women's Institute park fell by the wayside many years ago. At present, Coaldale is the largest town in Alberta that doesn't have its own park and camping facilities. For this reason alone, the new project deserves the full support of all residents of Coaldale and district. But, going outdoors is the fastest growing leisure type activity in North America today. There are scores of other irrigation water impoundments in the south country that already have the water and need only some greenery and shelterbelts. .But, they haven't been developed either and residents have to travel many miles to find their outdoor enjoyment. It's guaranteed, the new project will be among the best used in Alberta if it ever becomes a reality.

But Carlos Marcello, appar- ently angered by some of the questions asked him, refused to say who his biggest tomato cus- tomers are or where his com- pany is located. Joseph Phillips, chief counsel for the House of Representa- tives select committees on crime, had been questioning the 62-year-old Marcello about a 1966 meeting with alleged Mafia bosses in New York and about Marcello's business dealings. Marcello took the Fifth Amendment which protects wit- nesses against self-incrimina- tion to three straight questions and then Phillips asked: "Isn't it a fact that no tomato com- pany exists? Marcello said: "I'm going to take the Fifth Amendment on every other question you ask me." Marcello relented, however, after Representative Jerome Waldie (Dem. Calif.) took over questioning. Marcello was deported to Guatemala in 1961 but finally made Ms way back to the United States after Guatemala deported him to San Salvador and San Salvador deported him to the Honduras. He told the committee he has not received any money from illegal activi- ties for at least 10 years. Marcello also denied knowing any racketeers and said a 1966 luncheon at La Stella restaurant In New York, where he and sev- eral alleged Mafia bosses were arrested, has been falsely char- acterized as a meeting of the Cosa Nostra. Marcello said he went to the restaurant on the invitation of his brother, who also was in New York at the time, and did not know any of the people ar- rested with him except one. Marcello said he once had an interest in a New Orleans-area Day paces Hawks to victory Mike Day slammed in two goals and paced the Black Hawks to a 3-0 shutout over the Cougars in the senior division of the Lethbridge Minor Soccer League Wednesday night Brian Konrad chipped in with a singleton.

Anyone interested may call Ian Gray at 327-1195 for further information. It was also announced that the Department of Youth and Recreation of Alberta will hold a coaches clinic June 3-4.

Asked if gambling was legal In Louisiana at the time, he re- plied: "I don't know if it was legal or illegal. We just opened up and that was it." DENIES INTERESTS Marcello also said he had no interest in any race tracks, had no race horses, and did not be- lieve he had interests in any company that did business with Sportservice. Sportservice is a subsidiary of the Empire Corp. of Buffalo, N.Y. Empire recently was con- victed of conspiracy to use in- terstate facilities to acquire a hidden interest in a Las Vegas hotel and casino. Marcello said he had never loaned any money to John Mecom, who owns New Orleans Saints football team, to Me- com's son, or to the Saints. The committee did not ques- tion Marcello about Kohn's ac- cusations. started again and Tony's is much said Anderson, pointing to Beach's four circuit shots in the last three contests and Perez' availability after an injury mat knocked him out of 15 games. The loss was the sixth straight for Astros, who have given up a total of 52 runs in that stretch, and the sixth victory for the Reds in their last seven games. The outcome of Thursday night's contest left both clubs 1% games behind front-running Los Angeles after the Dodgers dropped a 5-2 deci- sion to San Francisco Giants. PHILS LOSE AGAIN In the National League's other games, New York Mets beat Philadelphia Phillies 6-1 and Chicago Cubs turned back St. Louis Cardinals 7-3. Home runs by Cesar Cedeno and Doug Rader helped Jerry Reuss off to a 3-0 lead as the left-hander struck out seven over the first four innings. Then Cincinnati's "Machine" began hitting on all cylinders. After scoring two runs in the fifth on doubles by Dave Con- ception and Pete Rose, an error and Joe Morgan's sacrifice fly, Cincinnati struck for four runs in the sixth on McRae's slam in a pinch-hitting role. Before con- necting, McRae had been bat- ting a mere .214 and was hitless in nine at-bats as a pinch-hitter. Steve Stone pitched a five-hit- ter and rookie Gary Maddox de- Svered a two-run single in a :hree-run fourth inning to pace San Francisco's victory. Singles jy Tito Fuentes and Ed Good- son started the rally off Bill Singer. Fuentes eventually :ame home on Chris Speier's sacrifice fly before Maddox drilled his game-winning hit to right. The victory halted a four- game San Francisco losing streak and ended a 10-game winning streak for Los Angeles at Candlestick Park, dating backto May 15, 1971. Sonny Siebert isn't much on )ird-watching, but nothing lifts lis spirits like the sight of Balti- more Orioles. The 35-year-old right-hander of .Boston Red Sox winged the Orioles 7-1 Thursday for Us 16th ictory hi 20 career decisions gainst the team that has won the last three American League pennants. Siebert took a so-so 3-2 record and bloated 4.47 earned run av- erage into the game, but throt- tled the Birds on seven hits and one unearned run and reduced his ERA to 3.82. Elsewhere, Cleveland nipped Detroit 1-0 as Gaylord Perry be- came the first nine-game win- ner in the majors; Kansas City downed Minnesota 5-3 and Mil- waukee edged New York Yan- kees M in 12 innings. Oakland, Chicago White Sox, California and Texas were not scheduled. Last season, Siebert was 4-0 against the Orioles, allowing them only three runs while his own bat contributed four ho- mers and 11 runs batted in. Cleveland got Perry the only run he needed against Detroit in third inning when Eddie Leon walked, Perry sacrificed and Tom McCraw singled, one of only .three hits off loser Joe Coleman. The Tigers nicked Perry for seven hits, two each in the first and fifth, but the tall right-han- der worked out of each threat and ended the Indians' seven- game losing streak.

Pinder claimed that when he signed the contract he asked that he be guaranteed in the event he was dropped dur- ing the contract year. He was refused, but said he was told by Crozier that if he could not "cut it" by Christmas the club would pay him the total value of his contract. Pinder had been a m e m- ber of the Western Hockey League. Court was told Pinder at- tended training camp, played all exhibition games and three league games. Then, on Nov. 7, 1969, Crozier told him via tele- phone that his services were no longer required. Pinder claimed that when hi advised Crozier he intended to hold the club to his contract in view of events, Crozier said: "Listen, sonny jimbo, you made your mind up. You said you want your money. So I'm going to keep you in Vancouver all year and you're not going to play but you're going to be practising from eight in tho morning until six at night." Mr. Justice MacFarlane said that although Pinder then re- turned to Manitoba to play hockey, he could have been re- called by the Canucks at any time and was prepared to cuss the situation with the club. "The matter was left unre- solved by the defendant (Tba Vancouver hockey club) and not by the plaintiff The defendant could have properly terminated the contract but chose not to do he said. Mr. Justice Macfarlane said it was Ms opinion the conduct of Crozier was such that Pinder was entitled to assume the club did not intend to carry out the contract.
