Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - June 2, 1972, Lethbridge, Alberta Friday, J, 1971 THE LttHBRIDGI HERALD 9 Perry wins ninth for Indians AND DISTRICT is to have a new park! When the Reds are hitting they're charging The idea came Into being at a meeting 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 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 miles south of the Readymade School; or, two miles south, five miles east, 3'A 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 itselt 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 set-ups, 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 Uie 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 02-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 wliich 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 relenlcd. however, alter Representative Jerome Waldie (Dem. Calif.) took over questioning. Marcello was deported to Guatemala in 1961 but finally made his way back to the United Stales after Guatemala deported him to San Salvador and San Salvador deported him lo the Honduras. He told the committee he has not receiver, any money from illegal activi lies for least 10 years. Marcello also denied knowing any racketeers and said a 1966 luncheon at La Stella reslauran 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 o( ils brother, who also was in York at the time, and did not know any of the people ar- rested with him except one. Marcello said he once had nterest in a New Orleans-area lub, the Beverly, which had gambling. Asked if gambling was legal in Louisiana at (he time, he re- ilied: "I don't know If It was legal )r illegal.

The loss was the sixth straight for the- Aslros, who lave given up a lotal of 52 runs n that stretch, and the sixlh victory for the Reds in their last seven games. The outcome of Thursday night's contest left xith clubs Hi games behind Tonl-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 oft 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- cepcion and Pete Rose, an error and Joe Morgan's Bacrifice fly, Cincinnati struck for four runs to the sixlh on McRae's slam in a pinch-hitting role. Before con- necting, McHae had been bat- ting a mere .214 and was hitless in nine at-bats as a pinch-hiller. Sieve Slone pitched a five-hit- ter and rookie Gary Maddox de- livered a two-run single in a tliree-run fourth inning to pace San Francisco's victory. Singles by Tito Fuenles and Ed Good- son started the rally off Bill Singer. F u e n t e s eventually came home on Chris Speier's sacrifice fly before Maddox drilled his game-winning hit lo righl. The victory halted a four- game San Francisco losing slreak and ended a Id-game winning slreak for Los Angeles at Candlestick Park, dating backlo May 15, 1971. Sonny Siebert Isn't much on bird-walching, bul nothing lifts his spirits like the sight of Haiti- more Orioles. The 35-yearMild right-hander of .Boston Red Sox winged Ihe Orioles 7-1 Thursday for bis 16th victory in 20 career decisions against 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 hi the majors; Kansas City downed Minnesota 5-3 and Mil- waukee edged New York Yan- kees 9-8 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 conlribuled four ho- mers and 11 runs batted In. Cleveland got Perry the only run he needed against Detroit in the third Inning when Eddie Leon walked, Perry sacrificed and Tom McCraw singled, one of only three hits off loser Joe Court awards Pinder VANCOUVER (CP) A Brit- tsh Columbia Supreme Court judge Thursday described us "reprehensible" the conduct of Joe Crozier, former manager- coach of Vancouver Canucks, and awarded player Herb Pinder damages against Ihc club for breach of contract.

Pinder claimed that when hs igned liio contract he asked lat he be guaranteed in le event he was dropped dur- ing the contract year.

"The matter was left unre- solved by the defendant Vancouver hockey club) and not by the plaintiff Tho defendant could have properly terminated the contract but chose not to do he said.
