Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - June 9, 1973, Lethbridge, Alberta Saturday, Jvnt f, 1979 THf LlTHIRIDGI HERALD II PET, DON'T ANV MORE, SOU IVJOW W Friday's bill says who will pay tor mo st of Olympics We're getting closer to the truth OTTAWA (CP) "Who'll pay for the This newspaper headline about two weeks ago echoed a concern felt across Canada: Montreal had the 1976 Olympics but not nearly enough money to cover the cost. A bill introduced in the Commons Friday is expected to answer at least part of the question. The proposed legislation would permit the issuance of special stamps and coins as well as the operation of Can- ada's first national lottery. Stamp and coin sales are forecast to raise about mil- lion with the lottery covering most of the remaining cost. At first the bill appeared to indicate that Prime Minister Fire fined each in Vancouver Flyers part with playoff mone> VANCOUVER (CP) Five members of the Philadelphia Flyers were each fined Fri- day as the result of a wild Dec. 29 National Hockey League game against Vancouver Ca- nucks. The game saw Philadelphia players swarm over the boards and glass and into the specta- tors seating area swinging sticks Another Philadelphia player, reserve goalkeeper Bob Taylor, who pleaded guilty to a charge of assaulting a peace officer, remanded to Monday for sentencing. Dafencemen Barry Ashbee, Ed Van Impe and Joe Watson, and forwards Don Saleski and William Flett all pleaded guilty to charges of causing a disturb- ance by fighting and swearing. Provincial Court Judge Larry Eckhardt imposed the max- imum fine permitted on the charge. He gave the five 30 days to pay or face 30 days in jail. Judge Eckhardt said sentenc- ing Taylor "presents a little more of a problem" because the assaulting charge is "more Centre Ross Lonsberry also pleaded guilty to a charge of causing a disturbance by fight- ing and swearing, but prose- cutor Stewart McMorran asked that the plea be struck and a stay of proceedings entered. McMorran said he was con- vinced after viewing films of the incident, that in a trial Lon- sberry would be found not guilty.

Parent's Signature For further information Phone 328-2341, Ext. 256, or 327-1310 was entered on four charges of assault on spectators laid against Flett, Lonsberry, Van Impe and Saleski. The incident began when a Philadelphia player and a Van- couver player began a fight early In the third period. The rest of the players on the ice paired off and then Saleski and Barry Wilcox of the Canucks began fighting at the boards. A fan reached over the glass and yanked Saleski's shoulder- length hair. Philadelphia play- ers then rushed to the spot, reeched over their sticks and swung at spectators before climbing up and over the board, still swinging. At one point, the Philadelphia players were up as far as the sixth row of seats. During the fracas, Constable Don Brown of the Vancouver police entered the fray in an at- tempt to quell the violence. Taylor swore at Constable Brown and pushed him over the seats. Constable Brown then saw a six-year-old girl and pro- tected her with his body. While he was lying down, Taylor stepped on him, the court was told. Although the players all pleaded guilty to the charges, two defence witnesses were President Clarence Campbell and Hal Laycoe, Ca- nucks' interim general man- ager. Laycoe said the Dec. 29 game "volatile" and "right from the outset seemed very spir- ited." He said it was a typical hard- fought NHL game in which many penalties are called. "I think the fans were enjoying it." He said he thought the offi- cials were controlling the game well Trudeau had backed down from' bis stand that a national lottery was not a good idea; that Que- bec should negotiate one with the other provinces. But the bill stipulates that each province can approve or disapprove of a lottery within its borders. Proceeds from the lottery will be used both for the Games and for development of amateur sport in each province. TWO COINS PLANNED The coins, with face values of and will have a total market value of million. With deducted to cover the minting costs, it leaves million for the Games. An additional mil- lion is expected from the sale of stamps and other postal prod- ucts. All proceeds will go into a special Olympics account pro- vided for in the bill. After costs are paid, the rest goes to the Games organization committee. Donations will be tax deduc- tible The controversial bill was in- troduced only after Quebec Pre- mier Robert Bourassa, Mon- treal Mayor Jean Drapeau and Games President C. 0. R. Rousseau guaranteed that Ot- tawa will not have to cover any deficit. The bill was moved for first reading by Privy Council Presi- dent Allan MacEachen in place of its sponsor Treasury Board President C. M. Drury, who was absent from the House Fri- day. The government is worried about a repeat performance of Expo 67 when the federal tax- payer was stuck with a million deficit. A report by the federal Treas- ury Board has indicated a Games deficit of million when all federal costs are in- cluded. The total cost was estimated in the report at between million and million. This would include capital and oper- ating expenses of about million, between million and million under existing fed- eral programs, such as for con- traction of the Olympic village, and incremental costs of million incurred by various fed- The Padres are moving SAN DIEGO (AP) The city was told Friday what every- body else has known for Diego Padres are moving to Washington, D.C. Owner C. Arnholt Smith, in a letter to city council, said he sold the National League base- ball club because it has been "a continuing financial loss." "The sale will not produce a profit to the company or its stockholders since the lion sale price will not cover our total investment in the Padres to date." Smith said. He assured officials that San D ego's first major league base- ball franchise will not be moved until after the 1973 season Junior Queens to face locals era! for indirect services. The latter would cover RCMP, forces personnel, extra immigration staff to handle the influx of tourists and other sim- ilar Hems. In past years, Lethbridge fastball enthusiasts have been treated to some of zaniest sporting attractions to ever hit the big top. These far-out attractions have included the Tikes of Ed Feigner, better as the "King and His the Har- lem Clowns, Harlem Ghosts and the ''Queen and Her Maids" led by Rosie Beaird. Feigner and his troupe haven't hit the southern Alber- ta area since 1971, the Harlem Ghosts and Clowns have stay- ed away from this region and the ''Queen and Her Maids" have folded operations. The former group hasn't really folded their operations entirety though, but have taken on a new pitcher which has changed their name to the "Junior Queen and Her Maids."

I mean, let's face it They got it with both barrels at this year's National Hoc- key League draft Tom Lvsiak and Lannv McDonald, who slipped through the clutches of the west's shrewdest hockey men, sign- ed multi-year, dollar-loaded contracts Lysiak was the property of the Edmonton Oil Kings while McDonald, who played in Lethbridge before heading for the Medicine Hat Tigers to join Lysiak, was on the list of the Centennials Both were set free for what Munro and Hunter felt were more talented players I can't think of any two I figured out why Gordie Howe is seriously thinking about coming out of retire- ment to play for the Houston Atcos of the World Hockey Association It's not for the money He has all he needs for the rest of his life To play with sons Mark and Marty, possibly But the real reason? He has a vacant spot on his trophy shelf You see, Howe, with records galore in the NHL, never won the Calder trophy as rooWe-of-the-year in the National League So why not give it a whirl in the WHA, the calibre of play, even for a 45-year old man, is one heck of a lot poorer than when Howe broke into tbe league some 27 years back... other junior hockey czars I would rather see it happen to than to Hunter and Munro It's hard to imagine that McDonald, who played in the Sugar King colors some three seasons back, is now worth over a season Wow, the pressure is certain- ly on Lanny McDonald however, is not the only form- er Sugar King to do well in th's year's draft Big John Davidson signed with St. Louis Blues and it is re- ported that he is making more money than all of the Blues, with the exception of Garry Unger And that says quite a bit Just like -Stan Maxwell said "I won- der hew Ted Kennedy feels shoveling gravel in Tcron- Kennedy was one of the all-time great Maple Leafs. I don't know if 3 ou have been wondering this but Paul Rus- ?nak and I have Do Fritz Peteison and Mike Ke- Kich talk to one another since their infamous wife and fam- ily swap? And what, pray tell, is their current marital sta- tus? Well, it seeems, they are cool to each other, but still talk on a professional basis, probably comparing breaking pitches Fritz is still with Mrs. Kekich. Mike is still with Mike Mrs. Peterson, who didn't want to switch after all, re- mains incommuni cado though, Mike sees her occas- ionally. Biggest strain of all is on Peterson, who has two families and is broke There will be divorces. If the Canadian Broadcasting Corp. becomes involved, there is a further million added to the tab. 'We fear there will be a large Mr. Trudeau told re- porters earlier this year. Asked who would wind up paying for the deficit, he in- died this was not his problem. "We have the we sought." Another obstacle was tossed In frdit of Mayor Drapeau this week when jhe International Olympic Committee decreed the athletes' village had to be built in one location, not scattered as it was in 1948 at Helsinki, 1962 in London and 1964 in Tokyo. Mr. Drapeau had planned to build the be used for low-rental housing after the one place but the Quebec government stepped in after it learned part of Montreal's municipal golf course would have to be sacri- ficed. Initial studies showed the vil- lage would have to be split up unless a single, large alternate site is found. Victor Goldbloom, Quebec's minister of municipal affairs, said the Olympic committee's stand "is complicating our work" but he was optimistic that a new site will be found. r I SPORTS FANS: In the hard-to-believe divi- sion Before they unloaded Otto Stowe to the Dallas Cow- boys, the Miami Dolphins were even working on a deal which would have included their superstar receiver, Paul- Warfleld going to Oakland for tight end Raymond Chester No standing still for the 17 straight Super Bowl champs I finally figured out one thing I don't like about the designated hitter rule Thursday night at Henderson Stadium Paul Sul- livan pitched an excellent game He finished with 10 strikeouts, gave up seven hits and walked just one man Yet, the fans, as appreciative as they were, had to wait until the game was over to really show him how much they enjoyed his perform- ance Now, if he had been at the plate a couple of times, Thursday's better than 1.000 supports could have ap- plauded It seems as though I m talking to myself when I talk to Sullivan I mean how would you feel if xou talked around saying what good game Sully pitch- ed? counter sponsored by the Leth- bridge Women's Softball League at the Dave Elton Park Mon- day night.
