Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - June 18, 1970, Lethbridge, Alberta THE IETHBRIDGE HERALD Thursday, Juno 18, 1970 ON THE WAY DOWN Mac Foster, left, leans on referee John Lo Bianco, as he sinks to the canvas after being hit by Jerry Quarry in sixth round of fight Wed- nesday night Quarry won by a TKO in the sixth. Unbeaten String Ends At 24 Knockouts Quarry Outclasses Mac Foster NEW YORK (CP) The sto- ry's old, but it always ends up the same way. Put an unknown fighter in against a seasoned professional, listen to the bookmakers tell TC-U how a young man named Mac Foster will beat seasoned Jerry Quarry, and then listen to the real inside experts in the boxing world. And if you listened intently, you'll be Quarry and end up laughing all the way to the bank. That's the way it was in Ma- dison Square Garden Wednes- day night. Mac Foster, 24 knockouts in Crawford Heads Aldermanic Trip EDMONTON (CP) Alder- men from Edmonton plan to visit Houston, Toronto and Mon- treal next week to discuss their plans for a sports, trade and convention centre here. The group, led by Alderman Neil Crawford are to visit Hous- ton Monday, Toronto Tuesday, Montreal Wednesday and Tor- onto again Thursday. liis 24 professional fights, was heralded as the man to beat heavyweight champion Joe Fra- zier. All he had to do was punch out an over-the-hill heavyweight contender named Jerry Quarry and the world was his. The Fresno, Calif., knockout artist promised in pre-fight talk he would put the pressure on Quarry and find the opening for a knockout punch. And for the first three rounds, it looked as if he might. Foster had Quarry on rubbery legs in the first round after connecting with a couple of savage left and right uppercuts to the jaw ami continued his edge into the third. In the fourth, the 25-year-old Quarry found the range with a few devastating left hooks to the Moser Nearly Pitches Gem Nu-Mode Homes finally click- prank Popson claimed the loss. midsEction and Foster's for- tunes faded noticeably. The fifth was worse for Foster as he took a fearful pounding for the whole three minutes. In the sixth, Quarry came out throwing bombs and referee Johnny LoBianco ended it with- out even bothering to count after Foster was belted on to the ring apron by a series of Quarry punches. Quarry said he was not satis- fied with his decisive victory over the No. 1-ranked heavy- weight contender. "I need the Bell- flower, Calif., slugger said. "I have to beat George Chuvalo, ed and defeated the Lethbridge Hotel 5-2 in a Commercial Fast- ball League game last night. Marv Moser only allowed one hit, a triple by Jim to gain the win. Bob Sapsford took the loss, but not before giving up a 'home run to Ewan McKenzie. In the other contest Dallas Cowboys shutout the RCMP 9-0. George Santoni had himself another fine night on the mound as he allowed only two batters to connect for hits. Danny S'antoni lead the win- ners at the plate as he banged out a home run. George aided his own cause not only by his pitching, but by slamming a double and a single. Phil Dodd walloped a triple for the losers.

McMillan won the stormy match 9-7, 6-4. The trouble started over a disputed line call at 6-6 in the first set. As the two men changed ends for the next game, Me- treveli shouted across the net: "Bloody fool." McMillan was heard to say: "Communist pig." Later McMillan walked over to the umpire, Mrs. Dorothy Cavis-Brown, pointed to a group of Russians who were talking behind the umpire's chair, and said, "Will you please clear these people The umpire on an adjoining court, where American stars Marty Riessen and Stan Smith were playing, looked over and shouted. "Will you please all The argument went on and a linesman said to Mrs. Cav- is-Brown: "Would you like nifl to take Two Violins Nol In The Running TORONTO (CP) Tlvj lllUi running of the Queen's Plate S'atuvctay became a whole new race today when owner George Gardiner of Toronto announced today lie is withdrawing Two Vi- olins, the undefeated favorite. Gardiner made the announce- ment at Woodbine race track's Turf Club just before entries closed this morning for the Plate, the premier event for Ca- nadian foaled three year old thoroughbreds. "It's swelling in the left fore- said Gardiner. "He isn't 100 per cent and we can't enter him. Whether it's a fracture or not we don't know. It will have to be x-rayed." Two Violins, trained by Lou Cavalaris, stumbled during a workout Tuesday morning but Gardiner was not sure whether that mishap accounted for the swelling. WON 5 STRAIGHT Two Violins, who has won five straight races this year, gal- loped Wednesday morning and Cavalaris said then that he saw nothing wrong with the big bay gelding. Cavalaris had scheduled an- other workout for the horse this morning but discovery of the swelling kept him in the barn. The loss of Two Violins opened a field that could result i pace-setter posting the first Queen's Plate victory since 1DC5. Earl Harbourne and Gil Rountree both hope they can make it come true. Harbourne trains Dance To Market, a stubborn bay colt that has consistently refused to be rated off the pace, and Koun- tree conditions Bees Wax, ai> other bay colt who was a top sprinter in his early career. BOTH CONFIDENT Setting the pace means a horse could be used up before the stretch run of the Hi-mile Plate distance and bath Roun- tree Harbourne claim their horses will be out to set the pace. Big Blue Bomber, a tall, gangly gelding owned by Conn Smythe and trained by Doug Walker is one of the horses con- sidered the best bet to catch the pace setters. "He's a pretty green Walker said Wednesday. "But we're really happy with the way he's been coming along." The Smythe horse won the second division of last Sunday's Plate Trial after Bees Wax took the first 10-horse division in which each entry can-led the Plate weight of 126 pounds. HAS THREE CONTENDERS A few steps down shedrow from the Smythe stable is John (Yonnie) Stan-, Smythe's for- mer trainer who also has three sound contenders .in his. barn. They include the filly Fran- freluche and a dark bay colt called Qroquemitaine from M-ontrealer J. Louis Levesque's stable, and Regal Admiral owned by W. H. Hatch of To- ronto. Regal AdmJral showed good form in battling the distance with Big Blue Bomber in the trial, losing by a head. Kilmartin Dies After Operation PROVIDENCE, R. I. (AP) Gerald W. Kilmartin, 42, former United States Olympic hockey Dlayer who was assaulted in Newport Sunday, died in hospi- !al Tuesday night. He had un- dergone a brain operation.

Qroquemitaine has an impres- sive record on the grass but has never done well on dirt courses. .Jockey Ron Tiircolte of Grand Falls, N.B., will be aboard Franfreluche, who came a dis- appointing second in the Oaks Stakes last Saturday. "I've got Richard Grubb on Qroquemitaine and Hugo' Ditt- fach on Regal said Starr. The two Quebec horses will go as an entry while Regal Admiral rims alone.

Cardinal Ace Gives Up One Hit Comes By THE ASSOCIATED PRESS Bob Gibson of St. Louis Cardi- nals was filing bullets at San Diego Padres Wednesday night, pitching hitless ball for 7 2-3 in- nings before Ivan M u r r c 11 drilled a single to save the Padres the embarrassment of being no-hit victims for the sec- ond time within a week. Murrell's hit, the only one for the Padres, came in the eighth inning off the powerful right- hander who faced only 29 bat- ters in pitching the Cardinals to :rn 8-0 rout of the Padres.

Claude Osteen staggered for five innings, allowing the Pir- ates six of their seven hits be- fore handing Pittsburgh its sec- ond straight shutout loss.
