Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - June 18, 1971, Lethbridge, Alberta TUESDAY, JUNE OUT ON A wu x TWIG with LOKIMER FESWICK We've been about the country quite a bit during the past few weeks ia the course of a aew job we have and consequently haven't had much, opportunity to keep up wish the world of sport. Nevertheless we are still going to try to wrue this blurb every day, no matter what we nave to wrxe aoout. So from now until the end of the summer we mav discuss anything from beet grouch? to fixing flat tires, although we'll try to cover as i much sport as possible. j One thing we've noticed in our j Journeys throughout the south, so' far is "the amount; pi interest the smaller towns have in baseball and fastball. We've visited about twenty of them already and practically ail of ihem have teams in some sort of a league. Even towns with less than three hundred people have s. couple of clubs representing them, which i would indicate that almost every man in town is playing ball. Bigger cities could take a lesson from Uiejn in community spirit. Another thing we noticed was the number of golf courses and tennis courts that are sprinkled throughout the countryside, espe- cially on the Cou'.ts line. While the courses didn't have the advantage of being near lakes or rivers they looked pretty nice all the same and it would probably be pretty tough to beat par on them. Some of their natural hazards, like oversized pebbles, would prevent. a fellow's score from being too good. It was good to see the way the rural communities have got behind sport. Every town we saw seemed to be interested in giving their youth something to other words they seemed to be really interested ia doing something about' sport. And we almost swallowed our chew- ing gum when we saw the wonder- ful recreation building for the young people of Cardsion. If you haven't already seen it you should make a point of doing no especially if you are down that way this summer. It j of Cardston should be proud of it. Louis and Conn En Route to New York Heavies Break Camp and Taper Off for Heavyweight Title Bout at Yankee Stadium Night GREENWOOD LAKE, N.J., June (C-P.) j Conn and Joe Louis broke their New Jersey training camps last night and prepared to return to New York for i their world's heavyweight boxing championship match at Yankee stadium Wednesday night. As ring-time approached a barrage of Conn nioney cut the odds against the Pittsburgher to 5 to but it was expected that a deluge of Harlem money would be dumped into the betting mill Wednesday to force the odds on Louis up to possibly 3 to 1.

He summed it up today with: "The easy pare comes I have to do is meet Joe." Promoter Mike Jacobs, confident too long. And finally, we like him because it's always a good idea to strir.g along champion, as you only j can be wrong once. And if we are soing to be wrong, always a possibility as if Conn had T.n chance there wouJd be no point in staging the bout, we might as be sood and So we'll pick Louis in one round.

Mangrum Reaping Golden Harvest CLEVKLAND, June United States open golf title al- ready is paying big dividends to Xiloid Mangrum. The Texas-born shotmaker. -who the title Sunday after a double play-off with Vic Gheza and Byron Kelson was richer today. And prcsnects -were that he'd cash in an additional before the year is over. The gold harvest started with Mangrum. signing up with George S. May to represent the Chicagoan's Tam-O-Shamer club in she future tournaments. This was reported to be to Mangrum. who has been playing from Los Angeles since his discharge six months ago after about three years in the army. Additionally, Mangrum received a bonus of from the golf equipment manufacturers he repre- sents: to appear in an. ap- proaching golf tournament, and in endorsements. There's be lots more endorsement money later on. By "winning the title. Mangrum moved into the class with. Nelson and Ben Hogan insofar as exhibi- tion appearances are concerned. Nelson and Eogan, the ''Mister Bigs" in money winnings and gale appeal, receive approximately S300 for early week-day exhibitions and for week-end appearances. Kow, Mangrum receive the same. Then there's the prospect of a fat purse for a match between Mangrum and the winner of the 1946 Professional Golfers' champion- ship to be played in Portland, Ore., next month, unless, of course, Man- erum -wins that crosm. too. Nelson will be the defending champion. 6-2 and 3-0 before a chilled but enthusiastic crowd of supporters. Ontko lead the Columbus Club attack; getting two safe blows as well as striking ou; five iliner bats- men. Kundnck and Hodyinak notched the markers for the junior club in the afternoon contest, ers all of four the two runs they did notch in that inning one was of the unearn- ed variety. In the sixth Columbus Club dumb- _ founded the Miners with a double making a dash, for second base simultaneously as Kod- yinak raced for third. After Rod- yinak crossed rise plate on Eorwell's sacrifice bunt, Sundrick caught the 000. We're pretty sure of breaking the record for she second Dempsey-Tunney Sght in And I'm not quitting yes on the hope of hitting Of the total, Joe will get 40 per cent, or about and Conn about Meanwhile Manhattan is filling up with, the estimated who will be buying seats at a price scale ranging from S10 (bleachers) to More than 700 news- paper and radio men will cover the event. PICKS ROTTVD (By "ttMlTJUX MARTIN) CLEVELAND. June may not be polite to express per- sonal likes and dislikes, but we can't resist saying we like Joe Louis. "We like 3Hlv Conn, too. for that matter but not in the same way. That is, we like Joe Louis over Billy Conn In their 15-round heavy- treight championshio fieht at Yankee Stadium in New York "Wed- nesday night. We know that Conn is a bigger, stronger man than he was the last .time they met, and that he is al- mcst fanatical in his determination to win. But we like Louis. "We like him because, for one thing, he is champion and he once knocked out the man he is fighting Wednesday. We like him because we think his pride in the title and his deter- mination to keep it are no less strong- than Conn's desire to win it. We like him because he is a good big man, fighting a good little man, and if his feet have slowed a little he still retains the speed in his hands and the tremendous punch- in? power that have made him one of the better champions. We like him because he has beaten every man he faced a second time, and all but one the first time, and he has faced every fighter who conceivably could be considered a conterder. We like him because he has timed his training to reach the peak at f w r> the opportune time, while Conn j JT Or DOUt seems to have reached top form too earlv.
