Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - June 7, 1974, Lethbridge, Alberta Friday, 7, 1974 THE LETHBRIDGE HERALD -15 Training camps may be delayed By THE CANADIAN PRESS Most general managers in the Canadian Football League are confident that training camps will open as scheduled despite the threat of a player strike. Meetings between players and management were halted Wednesday in Calgary and George Reed, CFL Players Association president, said no player will report to camp until a two-year agreement is signed. Reed said negotiations would resume after an accounting firm had reviewed financial information supplied by the nine CFL clubs. Jake Gaudaur, commissioner of the CFL and chairman of the player- management meetings, said Thursdav he saw no cause for Referees retain lawyer MONTREAL (CP) Lawyer Jim Beatty of Brampton, Ont., has been retained by the National Hockey League Officials Association in an effort to curb increasing verbal attacks on officials by club personnel and players, it was announced Thursday. ''The Association has been very concerned about the increasing amount of criticism of officials by team executives, managers and referee Wally Harris said in a prepared statement announcing Beatty's appointment. Harris, president of the officials' association, said the action was taken "to assure that we would not face another season subject to such attacks without the full support and recognition of the league and NHL board of governors." Beatty met with NHL president Clarence Campbell here Tuesday and agreement was reached on the recognition of the seriousness of the situation and on specific recommendations to the board next week during the league's annual meetings. On the association's instruction. Beatty filed a brief with Campbell on behalf of the officials and specific recom- mendations designed to curb the attacks. Beatty said he expects a further report following the league meetings. "In that report we expect some further rule changes and new- procedures which will speak directly to our concern for the proper respect and recognition of the role of officials in hockev." alarm "although time is im- i; portant." He said the players' associ- ation had agreed two weeks ago to look at the statements 5 and then decide whether they wanted an independent auditor to go over the figures. They had decided to do that at the Calgary meeting and, as far as he was concerned, i everything went as expected. EXPECTED JUNE 12 Marv Levy, general manager of Montreal Alouettes of the Eastern Football Conference, said rookies and quarterbacks are expected in camp June 12 with the rest of the players ar- riving June 15. He had not heard about Reed's statement, but expected all his players to be on hand. The players want a guaran- teed minimum salary of higher training-camp payments, increased pensions and more money for pre-and post-season play. The terms have been de- scribed by the clubs as "ex- cessive." In order to substan- tiate that, the owners agreed at the league's serni-annual meetings last week to let the players take a look at their financial statements. Reed said after the Calgary meeting the financial information was limited to two sheets of paper. "There were no books, no statements, just that a certain amount of dollars was lost last season." OWNERS HAVE AGREED Gaudaur said it may be nec- essary for the independent auditors to go to the clubs and look "at the work sheets or whatever you would call them, but the owners have agreed to this." Earl Lunsford, general manager of Winnipeg Blue Bombers, said he is "optimistic that there will be rational thinking and we'll come to a rational decision." Lunsford recalled that nego- tiations went to the llth hour two years ago before the play- ers finally agreed to a two- year pact. "We're going to operate, whatever happens. We've sold a lot of tickets and are going ahead. If the veterans don't show up, we'll just have to open camp with the rookies-. Who knows, maybe nobody will show up but the four coaches. We'll just have to play it by ear." Lunsford said quarterbacks and local players are scheduled to begin unofficial workouts in Winnipeg Monday, with regular training camp workouts to begin Monday, June 17. B.C. Lions general manager Jackie Parker said the Lions would be going to camp as scheduled, and will play all exhibition games "even if we have to use rookies." Bob Ackles. assistant general manager, said all players were due to report for workouts starting in Penticton June 17. "We plan to go ahead as usual, whether or not the veterans report." Ackles said. Jim Wood, head coach of the Stampeders. said in Calgary that training camp for his Western Football Conference club would open on schedule. June 15.

COMPLETE 5.ERV1C6. SICK ART SI. S. UTHBRIDGt. AIT A. Phone By CLARKE HUNTER Herald Sports Writer The largest sporting event of its kind in Alberta will be run off in Calgary- August 22-25. Ron Butlin, general chairman of Sport Alberta, was in Lethbridge Thursday to speak to a press conference about this year's Alberta Summer Games. In the inaugural year for the event, over 40.000 athletes from 13 to 80 years of age will compete in regional playdowns leading up to the competition finals in Caigary. Over S5.000 worth of medals will be presented to first, second and third place finishers in twenty sports, ranging from baseball and swimming to parachuting and water skiing. Butlin is presently on a barnstorming tour of press conferences to promote Jhe participation which is the Games" primary objective. "The Games are an effort to promote mass invo'vment in amateur sport, and are in line with government policy in this says the well known Calgary sportman. The 2.50P competitors expected Jor 1he four day event in the Stampede City will make this the largest summer or winter games competition that any province has undertaken thus lar "To ensure participation 1rom around the province, we have divided it into seven zones, and have made some special rules on participation." The seven zone set up will ensure that the final do not become a strictly Calgary Edmonton affair And Ihe Games will provide free transportation, room and board for athletes competing in sports which have representation from all zones. "This arrangement provides the needed incentive for regional directors to get out and promote mass involvement." Butlin says. Games Co ordinator Diane Kirby expects Southern Alberta to be one of the strongest areas in terms of organization and participation. "The South already has a network of people involved in this sort of thing through their highly successful Southern Alberta Summer Games." Softball Labor Club Larks and Rittway Flames chalked up wins in City Women's Softball Ijeapue action. Flames scored 10 runs in the sixth inning to roar past the Northstars 24-17. In the other encounter the Larks edged L A Legionettes 8-6. Judy MrlVab sparked the Flames' rally with a home run and a double, to go along with an earlier single. Gail Blanchard had a triple, double and single for the winners as wrll She also was credited with Ihe victory. Mabel Harrold bested Linda Kish in the Lark Legionettes lusslc Lynelte ShacJdeford belted a home run for the Larks while Barb Brown stroked one for the Legioncltes.

Crystal N'ordm belted a home run for the Cheetahs in iheir win over the Cvclones. finals, only to lose out to Calgary Burns Shamrocks 2-1 in the final. As mentioned earlier. Kaz was a player- coach for the RCMP in 1970 and in 1971 he changed teams in order to coach the M K Generals who captured the Alberta Intermediate Men's A fastball title. He readily recalled that year since it was the only year he coached a provincial championship club in any sport. "We won the Alberta crown that year, but that isn't why I remember that year so he said. "The only reason I can recall it so quickly is because that's the only season 1 coached a winning team, but I just couldn't attend the finals in Grande Prairie because of business reasons. In 1972, he was asked to help the Lethbridge Lakers of Alberta Major Baseball League and has since been a member of the board of directors. He has also taken on the chores of director of personnel, which keeps him in the thick of the action. As a member of the Lakers, Kaz has come to adopt the philosophy of the club and would like to encourage everyone to give the club his support. "Our organization's main objective is to promote and develop baseball in Lethbridge and Southern Alberta." he said. "We want to give up-coming baseball players a place to play after their minor baseball careers are finished. "Besides that, we want to promote Canadian talent and win a national title at the same time. "But. by the same token we still want to be competitive in the AMBL where all the teams, besides us. have American players." Kaz also mentioned that the Laker organization would like to produce a few This summer will see the fifth annual Southern Alberta Games being held in Fort Macleod. Alberta Games participants who advance to final competitions will be housed at either the University of Calgary residences or the Currie Army barracks. The majority of athletes will compete in an Alberta Class category, with certain athletes who have attained national or international status for their proficiency competing in special Challenge or Invitational Classes. This should prevent situations where one athlete completely outclasses his competitors in an event. Alberta Premier Peter Lougheed. along with the Hon. Horst Schmid. Minister of Culture. Youth and Recreation and Calgary' Mayor Rod Sykes. will officially open the Games on August 21. This will occur at half time of the nationally televised Canadian Football League game between the Saskatchewan Roughriders and the Calgary Stampeders at McMahon Stadium. Batiin's Sport Alberta organization is the main vehicle through which the Games are operated, with funding coming from the Provincial Government and the City of Calgary, as well as from private sectors Anyone interested in obtaining more information about the Alberta Summer Games regarding entry and regional play downs should get in touch with his local recreation board, or with the Regional Office of 1he Dopl of Culture. Youth and Recreation major league prospects, which probably won't prove too difficult a task in the non- too-distant future. Kaz has. indeed, put a lot of time into helping the sport of baseball in Lethbridge and Southern Alberta and it was reassuring to hear him say. "I've put in hundreds of hours in promoting baseball and I'm willing to put in many more in the future." Rumors have it Sanderson heading towards New York By AL COLLETTI NEW YORK (CP) Derek Sanderson, controversial centre of Boston Bruins, probably will be wearing a New York Rangers uniform next season. Rumors have been circulating for the last few days that the two National Hockey League clubs are about to complete a deal involving the 27-year-old Sanderson. A source close to the negotiations said that if nothing goes wrong in the next week or 10 days. Sanderson will be headed for the Rangers. Bob Woolf. a Boston sports lawyer who handles Sanderson's business dealings, said no contract had been signed yet. But he did not preclude Sanderson going to New York. "'We have been talking .with several clubs but Sanderson wants New York Woolf said. Sanderson's acquisition by the Rangers apparently rests on an intricate, three-team transaction which also was to involve California Golden Seals. The Rangers apparently would leave defenceman Jim Neilson unprotected in next week's intra-league draft, and the Seals, choosing first. select the 33-year-old Neilson. California, in turn, would leave centre Walt McKechnie off their protected list, and he would be selected by the Rangers, who have the 12th selection. McKechnie would then be traded to Boston for Sanderson. The Bruins want to unload Sanderson but they will be de- manding a stiff price for him in compensation. His salary is close to a year. But the New York club al- ready has unloaded a a-year player, captain Vic Hadfield. traded to Pittsburgh Penguins. The Rangers also have indicated that more trades are in the wind. Sanderson has described Ranger fans as "animals." a word used by several other NHL players. Police had to protect him several times from the crowds at Madison Square Garden. But roach Emiie Francis of the Rangers always has ad- rnired Sanderson's play in the Royals score easy victory The LeJhhndge Royals came up wajh an easy victory over Calgary Gaslhaws in a Calgary Senior Men's Soccer league game recently Angelo Mauro led the locals" wilh a ihree-goal, performance while singles wenl 1o Frank Sunano. S. Knmvel and -loe Slropmk Rab was a standout in 1he Royal's nel while Alec Duda? was the backbone oi Ihe playoffs and his ability to kill off penalties. And Sanderson has told friends that the admiration now is mutual. Sanderson and former Boston coach Bep Guidolin didn't hit it off last season. Sanderson was hurt early on. never regained his top shape, and remained in the background for a major part of the season. Fastball Ron Zasadny blazed the third strike past 15 hitters and powered the Lethbridge Hotel Northstars to a 5-1 victory over the Labor Club Athletics in the first of two Southern Alberta Major Men's Fastball League games Thursday night. Zasadny. who registered his sixth straight win of the season, allowed only four hits .while losing pitcher Doug Hartley gave up six. Zasadny aided his own cause by stroking a home run and a double while Tom Beresnak added a triple. Bob Setoguchi belted a triple and single for the losers with doubles going to Ken Nagata and Ron Hahn. Meanwhile in the second tilt of the evening. Pic A Pop. battled Picture Butte Rae Motors to a 5-5 stalemate. Greg Binning allowed only seven hits pitching for Pic A Pop while Hartley Phillips gave up 11 hits going the full seven innings for Butte. Albert Sackman sparked Pic A Pop offensively with a pair of doubles while Bob Harris and Larry Keinick ripped two singles apiece. Dan Tolley tagged a double and a single for Butte. Floyd Anderson had his big bat booming in Commercial Men's Fastball League action as he pounded out three home runs to spark IGA to an upset 15-5 triumph over the Robots. Sig Dobler was the winner with the loss going to Marv Moser. City Hall and Liberty Boilers met in a battle of unbeatens as the Citymen. behind Jack James, romped past Al Pilling and the Boilers 13-2 as they scored eight runs in the sixth inning. In other games Willy Spackman picked up the win as Woolco downed Money Movers 19-10 and Cough's outlasted Smitty's 18-11.
