Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - June 21, 1974, Lethbridge, Alberta Friday, June 21, 1974 iHE LETHBRIDGE HERALD Koosman got off lucky, Schmidt tagged long one The ASSOCIATED PRESS Jerry Koosman learned Thursday night from Mike Schmidt that it isn't always wise to second-guess your catcher. The Philadelphia slugger hit a Koosman curve ball to the base of the centre field wall before Dave Schneck hauled it in. That out preserved a 2-1 Na- tional League baseball victory for New York Mets but left Thunder Bay wants to play VICTORIA (CP) Western Canada Hockey League governors Thursday heard an application from Thunder Bay, Ont. to become the league's 13th member, but put off any decision on the application un- til later in the annual meeting. A Thunder Bay group headed by lawyer Jim Johnson made the presentation to the governors at the first day of the WCKL's annual meeting. League president Ed Chynoweth of Saskatoon said there were a number of factors to take into considera- tion before approval of the application, most impor- tantly the additional costs of travel to the Ontario city. The 12 governors also spent the first day discussing the question of re-alignment of the league's two divisions, necessitated by the possibility of Thunder Bay joining the WCHL and the switch of Swift Current, Sask. Broncos to Lethbridge. Chynoweth made three suggestions to align the divisions in a 12-team league either a seven-five split in divisional strength, with four teams from the seven-team division making the playoffs along with three from the other division and a "wild-card team" with the next-best record also advancing, or all 12 teams in one division with the top 10 making the playoffs, or a move of either Edmonton or Medicine Hat from the west to the east division. The meeting continues through Saturday, with governors then meeting Monday and Tuesday to draw up the 1974-75 schedule. No boxing in Garden? NEW YORK (AP) Alan N.

G W Saudern forced to discountinue boxing as one of its major sports attractions. Speaking in the wake of the veto by Gov. Malcolm Wilson of a bill designed to ease the state tax burden on enter- tainers performing in New York, Cohen admitted that un- less the bill is resubmitted and passed next year, "there is a good chance he would have to discontinue our boxing ac- tivities." At issue is the state's insist- ence on taxing performers- boxing matches and concerts are the events usually af- their earnings from ancillary income such as closed-circuit television receipts earned out of the state. Cohen said the Garden box- ing program depends on attracting name fights, and that without the tax relief vetoed by Gov. Wilson, the building would lose those bouts. That loss, he said, could be fatal. "Unless we can have the big fight said Cohen, "we can't make money in boxing. We have been struggling. Un- less we can make boxing profitable and it's only profitable if it is big time it will have to be discontinued. I intend to run this company profitably and if boxing is a loser, it is not our responsibili- ty to continue." In his veto message, the governor said the bill would cause revenue loss for the state, a position Cohen dis- puted.
