(CP Wirepholo) Six added to Hockey Hall of Fame Harvey misses selection MONTREAL (CP) "It's a tremendous honor when you consider that somebody like Doug Harvey, who has con- tributed so much to the game, isn't in the Hall of Gordie Howe said Wednesday when he and five other people were admitted to hockey's Hall of Fame. "On playing says Billy Reay, a former team- mate and now coach of Chi- cago Black Hawks, "Doug most certainly should be in there." asked Tom John- son, coach of Boston Bruins and onetime partner of Har- vey's on the Canadiens blue- line. "Was there anybody around In his time as good as he was as a defenceman? "He could control the tempo NHL All-star game ready MONTREAL (CP) The 1972-73 National Hockey League all-star game will be played Jan. at Madison Square Garden in New York, it was an- nounced Wednesday. The game will pit the all-stars from the East Division against those of the West Division. The East team will be coached by Tom Johnson of Boston Bruins, East Division and Stanley Cup champions while Billy Tteay of Chicago Black Hawks will coach the West Division team. of the game, speed It up or slow it down if he wanted to." But despite all the testa- ments from his fellow ath- letes, Harvey was ignored Wednesday when the 1972 selections to the Hall of Fame were announced. Named to the shrine were Howe, Jean Bcliveau, Bernie Geoffrion, the late Reginald (Hooley) Smith and Harry (Hap) Holmes. Weston Adams ST., long- time owner of Boston Bruins until he gave way as presi- dent of the club to his son a year ago, was selected in the builders category. Smith starred with the now- defunct Montreal Maroons while goalie Holmes' career stretched over 15 years of Stanley Cup competition with teams in Toronto, Seattle, Vic- toria and Detroit. Under hall rules, players have to have been out of hockey for three years before they are eligible for nomina- tion. These rules were waived for Howe and Beliveau, two superstars who retired alter the 1970-71 season. Harvey, the defenceman they always compare Bobby Orr to, filled the three-year requirement. After the selections were announced, Frank Selke Sr., chairman of the selection committee, shook the former defenceman's hand and asked if he had been out of hockey long enough to qualify. was the reply. "We'll get you in next year Selke told Harvey and then added: "But you've got to help me." "I'm not interested into get- ting into the Hall of Harvey countered defiantly. "I don't want any part of an outfit that bends the rules for their own you have to be one of the es- tablishment or you don't qual- ify. "What they're telling Harvey added, "is that they won't put me in because I'm not averse to sampling the nectar of the gods now and then. Smiling, Harvey raised a gin and tomato juice to his lips and then said: "The difference is that I'l! hoist a few in full view ol everyone where some other guys will sneak around the corner to do theirs." "I'm my own man." Doii Marshall liangs them up MONTREAL (CP) Do Marshall, veteran forward with Toronto Maple Leafs of the Na- tional Hockey League, has an- nounced his retirement from hockey. Marshall, 40, had two goals and 14 assists in 50 games with the Leafs last year. A veteran of 18 NHL seasons, Marshaa played with Montreal Canadiens, New York Rangers and Buffalo Sabres before being drafted by tha Leafs last sum. mer. CALGARY (Special) Lethbridge Lakers are skidding downhill and can't seem to stop as they suf- fered a 7-0 defeat at the hands of the Calgary Jimmies in Alberta Major Baseball League action Wednesday night. .The visiting Lakers, who racked up victories In their first six starts, have dropped three straight de- cisions. Last night the Jimmies extended theii undefeated streak to six games as they blanked the second- place Lakers. Right h a n d e r Bob Balrd stretched his total of scoreless innings pitched to 16 by going the first seven innings on a four-hitter, striking out 10. Mal- colm Lynn stopped Lakers on one hit in the last two innings. Outfielder Doug Simon hit a two-run homer off loser Handy Maxwell in the first inning and then the Jimmies scor- ed four more runs against Maxwell in the second, three of them unearned. Playing man- ager John Elick hit a solo home run in the seventh off Maxwell who was relieved in the eighth by Deruils King. Outfielder Marv Chamberlain and Simon each had three hits for the winners while pitcher Maxwell was the only Laker year TORONTO (CP) Dave ranmer, one of the hard-luck allplayers in the Canadian "ootball League, has been lost o Toronto Argonauts for at east a year. The club announced today jat the running back from Sar- iia, Ont., who learned his foot- all at Bowling Green, was under doctor's orders not to lay this season following an op- ration to remove nearly three eet of iutestine. Cranmer originally joined Ot- awa Rough Riders of the East- ern Conference, but was traded o Calgary Stampeders of the iVFC where he became western jookie of the year in 1968. He cracked a fibula in the second- ast playoff game, against Sas- katchewan Roughriders, and missed the Grey Cup game that year. The following year he fell on the ball during training camp and ruptured the membrane be- tween the lung and the rib cage and played in only eight games that season. His first full year was 1970 when he carried 73 times for 328 yards and caught 32 passes for 518 yards and six touchdowns. Argonauts got him for the 1971 season in trade for Ron Arends but he was bothered all year by a stomach disorder which he said at the time, he believed was a nervous condi- tion. An off-season operation was performed and doctors said he might be fit to resume action midway through this year. Fur- ther examination proved this was inadvisable and doctors said a blow to the abdominal area could cause grave internal damage. More sport on page 14 DON'T MISS IT!

I SULLY SAYS 1 2P -By Pat J'M SURE I won't get the boss to agree with me, but this coming weekend is one of those that brings the tnie meaning of working press to bare. If there is lawn bowling for the Old-Timers then nearly everyone in the city will have something to do. Activities which will keep yours truly hopping. Don't get me wrong, I'm not complaining, I just don't know where to start. George Gemer and the Lethbridge Track and Field Club will join forces with the Knights of Col- umbus to host the western Canada decathlon, pen- tathlon championships Saturday and Sunday at the Civic Centre. The two-day affair will see competitors from B.C., Alberta, Saskatchewan and Manitoba taking part. The gals will compete in five events over the two days while the men see action in 10. Saturday's activities have a start while Sun- day's time is still undecided. Saturday evening is sort of the still before the storm with the exception of the Elks golf tournament. Henderson Lake will be the site of the annual Elks bash for two days. Some 80 golfers will be on hand for the event. A horse race is planned for Sun- day afternoon at four o'clock. Rumor has it that the golfers in the horse race will be the 10 who managed to get some sleep in between festivities Saturday night and Sunday morning. It is expected Alex Mur- reU will be back for a run at his third horse race honors in three years. Sunday, and of course all of these proceedings will go as scheduled only with the weatherman's co-operation, will see more golf, and the end of the decathlon, pentathlon events. Lethbridge Lakers will share in the Sunday spot- light when they play host to the Eston Ramblers of Eston, Sask. in an interlocking game. Lakers are in the Alberta Major Baseball League while the Ramb- lers play in the Northern Saskatchewan League. Lakers were less than impressive Tuesday eve- ning as they dropped a 7-1 win to the Calgary Giants. They turned in a lack-lustre performance and drew the ire of coach John Vaselenak. The locals are a much better ball club than what they displayed Tues- dap. I certainly wouldn't want to see a repeat per- formance from them. Lacrosse, the game that still has some people believing it is Canada's national sport, will be on dis- play at Henderson Lake Ice Centre. The Lethbridge Native Sons host Calgary Premiers at seven o'clock. Sunday's calendar also shows a wind-up banquet for the Lethbridge Lions Amateur Swim Club at six o'clock at Ericksen's. I can't recall a banquet in the past so we'll call this one a first. A new executive will be named for next season. The Lions have long been one of the city's most suc- cessful athletic clubs. Southern Alberta Auto Racers return to Sunday night racing with time trials at and racing at I didn't think the auto racers would have enough nerve to put on anottier show after the news media got finished entertaining the crowd last Sun- day. It has to be considered a tough act to follow. If everything works out over the weekend you should be able to read about all these activities in Monday's paper. If not, you can expect a new head- ing atop this column come Tuesday. McKeuzic paces Larks lo win.
