Lethbridge Herald (Newspaper) - March 1, 1971, Lethbridge, Alberta f - THI IETHMID01 HlttAlD - Monday, March 1, 1971 Third spot to Canadian Magnussen stages late rally LYON, France (CP) - "Wait till next year" seems to be the dominant theme in Canadian figure-skating circles now that the 1971 world championships are finally decided. This is particularly true in the case of Karen Magnussen, at 18 a veteran of the tough international competitions and a third-place finisher this year in the individual women's contest. The winner was Austria's Trfei Scbuba, with Julie Lynn Holmes of the United States second. , Miss Magnussen had earlier been cited as a favorite for the 1971 championship after three previous years had seen her advance up the scale to her 1970 achievement of fourth in the final standings. After the results of the Lyon competition in the women's category were announced Saturday night, the blonde Vancouverite was asked by reporters whether she felt she now was past her peak. "I'm just starting," she .replied with a smile. Miss Magnussen then vowed a Sets sights on slam Nicklaus triumphs at PGA NICKLAUS WITH TROPHY - Jack Nicklaus smiles over the trophy he won at the PGA Championship Sunday by shooting seven under par golf for the four rounds with a score of 281. Elks leading by six goals Marty Maxwell broke out of a recent slump Saturday evening and his timing couldn't have been at a better time. Maxwell was outstanding as St. Philips triumphs at Standoff St. Philips of Kamsack, Sask. won the All - Indian hockey tournament held at Standoff over the weekend. St. Philips blasted North Bat-tleforcl 14 - 5 in the all-Sas-katchewan tournament final. Ten teams in all took part in the two - day event including the Kainai Chefs, hosts for the tournament. The Chiefs won their opening game 5-0 over Winterburn but were dumped bt St. Philips in their second outing. In capturing the tourney St. Philips won $600 with $400 going to North Battleford. EXPORTA 1 REGULAR AND KINGS the Lethbridge Elks slapped Medicine Hat Huskies 10 - 4 in the first game of a two - game, total-point series for the southern Midget A title. The second game will be played in Medicine Hat Sunday. Turning in one .of his strongest performances of the season Maxwell figured in seven of the 10 goals his team earned as he scored three times and picked up four assists. Ken Klinkhammer chipped in with two goals while single efforts were turned in by Fred Hoffarth, Brian Cave, Terry Roberts, Wendlin Wandler and Neil Besplug. Dale Knox notched a pah- of markers for the Huskies with Fred Hall and Rudy Martens adding singles. Elks took a 4 - 2 first, period lead and inci-eased it to 7 - 2 after the second period. The locals' got the nod on nine minor penalties while Huskies were guilty of four infractions. Saturday's victory gives the Elks a six - goal cushion heading'into the second game. The winner of the Elks - Huskies series will advance to the Alberta final against Red Deer. PALM BEACH GARDENS, Fla. (AP) - Nobody has ever won the PGA , United States Open, Masters and British Open in the same year. Jack Nicklaus has it on his mind. "I've got one leg and I'm thinking about the Masters," he said. "And, that's a golf course I know I can play." Nicklaus shot 73 Sunday for a seven-under-par 281 total to win the 53rd Professional Golfers Association championship at the tough PGA National Golf Club. "Normally, I head for the Masters trying to get a first leg on the Big Four," said the 31-year-old fairways giant. "This time I've got the first leg." The PGA, normally the last of the Big Four events in August, was moved to February for one time only. MASTERS IN APRIL The Masters , comes up in April at Augusta, Ga., the U.S. Open in June and the British Open in July. "All pro golfers try to set themselves apart from the rest," said Nicklaus. "The major championships do this. I've got 11 now and want to win more than anybody who ever lived." Bobby Jones is the leader with 13. Nicklaus and Walter Hagen have 11 and Palmer, eight. Nicklaus's road to Sunday's PGA triumph was a bit rocky. He was over par on three of the opening five holes and led by  one shot on several occasions. He began the day with a four-stroke lead over Gary Player, five on Gibby Gilbert and seven shots over the other also-rans. CASPER CHARGES As it turned out, Billy Casper, a two-time U.S. Open champ, made a charge at the end to finish two behind Nicklaus and 52- Bench inks one-year pact CINCINNATI (AP) - Johnny Bench, Cincinnati Reds' Mr. Everything, gave up his bid for a multi-year, six-figure contract Sunday and signed a one-year pact believed to be less than $100,000. Although no figure was released, the 23-year-old all-star catcher was certain to have received a tremendous wage boost over the reported $40,000 he played for last season. "Everything Is very well," he said after signing. "If I have a good year and we win the pennant again then we'll go from there." Bench, wlio led .the major leagues with 148 runs batted in and 45 home runs and being named the National League's Most Valuable Player, has asked for a three-year contract at $500,000. year-old Tommy Bolt shot a closing 69 to take third at 284. Nickalaus' putting keyed in 11th major championship and the tip that made it possible came during a friendly bridge game eight days ago. "Deane Beman told me I wasn't fnishing my backswing on.putts," Nicklaus said. "He's helped me before. I stopped playing bridge and went outside at 11 p.m. to hit some balls on the Astroturf around my pool." Behind' the front three were Miller Barber and Player at 285 and Gilbert, Dave Hill and Ja-mieson at 286. Palmer finished out of contention at 289.

Edmonton edged the Lethbridge crew 56-49 in overtime to advance to finals against the Bozemam, Mont, who were trimmed by the Edmonton crew 56-54. Earlier hi the day the Boze-man squad tripped Missoula, Mont. 79-63 and dropped Lethbridge 79-45.

The Edmonton squad will now represent the Alberta-Montana zone in Salt Lake City, Utah sometime in mid-March.

Leeds, which beat Coventry City 1-0 Friday night, is seven points ahead of second-place Arsenal, although Arsenal has two matches in hand. Derby's victory at home provided a successful debut for their new $308,000 player Colin Todd, who played a brilliant midfield role. England centre-half Roy Mc-Farland gave Derby a first-half lead and striker Kevin Hector added a goal after the interval. In the final for the English League Cup Saturday, England international Martin C h i v e r s scored two late goals in two minutes to give First Division Tottenham Hotspur a hard-fought 2-0 victory over Third Division Aston Villa. Olivers' first goal came in the 78th minute and the cheers from the capacity crowd of 100,000 at Wembley Stadium in London had hardly died down when Chivers struck again two minutes later. KEEPS RECORD INTACT Tottenham's win earned the team a place in the European Fairs Cup and maintained its unbeaten record in seven Cup final appearances. Back in league action, third-place Chelsea moved to within three points of Arsenal after holding Southampton to a scoreless draw. . Wolverhampton Wanderers narrowed the gap to one point behind Chelsea, beating Liverpool 1-0 on a goal in the 13th minute by Mike O'Grady.  League champion E v e r t o n played to a 3-3 tie against West Bromwich, who took a 2-0 lead in eight mniutes on goals by Jeff Astle and Tony Brown. But Everton rallied to score three goals in 11 minutes from Jimmy Husband, and Joe Royle and Keith Newton. John Wile scored the tying goal in the 74th minute for West Bromwich. In the Second Division, first-place Sheffield United was beaten 1-0 by Carlisle, now only one point behind Sheffield alongside Cardiff and Hull, who played to a 1-0 tie. Aberdeen maintained a one-point lead over defnding chanv pion Glasgow Celtic after both teams tied 1-1 in Scottish First Division games-Aberdeen against St. Mirren and Celtic against Hearts. fighting performance at next year's championships, to be held in Calgary, as well as at the 1972 Winter Olympics in Japan. She drew hearty applause at Lyon with her display of highflying splits, reverse whirls and spinning leaps, nil performed with obvious grace and solid physical power. One slip, during what she later identified as a "double lutz," may have cost Miss Magnussen some marks in the estimation of the nine judges. She was also distracted by a disparity in the speed of her music, as electronically reproduced here, compared with the pace at which it usually proceeds on the public-address equipment used in North America. The disparity was tiny but even the smallest inconsistencies in pace can make an enormous difference to a skater as geared to precise movements as is Miss Magnussen. "I did all I could do," she said afterwards. Her mother, Mrs. Alf Magnussen, embraced Karen after the young Canadian's showing Saturday night. Diane Hall and Ruth Hutchinson, two Canadian 19-year-olds who placed 16th and 19th re-spectively in the 22-entry women's competition, showed similar spirit. "I feel pretty good," said Miss Hall, a Torontonian, after her rookie performance before a world free-skating audience. Miss Hutchinson, indicated plans for entering the world contest again next year. Miss Magnussen will tour various continental cities, along with other men and women from the top echelons of the Lyon competition. The Russians won the most medals in the competition-four. They took two gold in the dance and pairs and a silver in the pairs and a bronze in the men's singles. The U.S. won a silver in the women's singles and a pah* of bronze medals in the pairs and dance. Czechoslovakia earned a gold in the men's singles, Austria another in the women's singles and Miss Magnussen got Canada's only medal-a bronze. West Germany was a silver winner in the dance. Irina Rodnina and Sergei Ulanov in the pairs and Lud-mila Pacbamova and Alexander Groshkov in the dance successfully defended their titles for Russia. Ondre j Nepela of Czechoslovakia took the men's singles. Stampeders end first By THE CANADIAN PRESS Calgary Stampeders, who Friday were four points up on Edmonton Monarchs in Alberta Hockey League standings, slipped back slightly during the weekend but finished the season in first place with a three-point margin. The final standings mean Stampeders have a bye into the league finals against the winner of a best-of-seven semifinal series between the Monarchs and last-place Drumhel-ler Miners starting Wednesday in Edmonton. Although undefeated in weekend play, Stampeders lost their point when they managed only a 3-3 tie Saturday with Saskatoon Quakers of the Saskatchewan Senior Hockey League Ln an interlocking game, while Monarchs were defeating the SSHL Yorkton Terriers 7-4. Merts curling championships open today Experience could be deciding factor QUEBEC (CP) -� Experience in previous national finals could be the deciding factor in this year's Canadian curling championship which starts its 11-rink, round-robin route today. Today's first and second rounds are scheduled at 3 p.m. and 8 p.m. EST. And the experience, as usual, rests with the western entries. Tite West has almost totally dominated the event for 21 years, with only rinks from Northern Ontario, Nova Scotia and Ontario managing to break the stranglehold in 1950, 1951 and 1967 respectively. First of aU there is the Manitoba rink of Don Duguid from Winnipeg's Granite Curling Club. Duguid has the same personnel as last year in lead Woody Wood, second Jim Petta-piece and third Rod Hunter. They won the Macdonald's Brier Trophy as national champions last year and then went on to Utica, N.Y. to win the World title. WINNER GOES TO FRANCE The winner of this year's WRESTLING TONIGHT 8:30 P.M. EXHIBITION AUDITORIUM ABDULLAH THE BUTCHER vs STU HART Sweeten ond Peller vs Lueck and Duprs Thornton vs Sullivan ond 2 More Bouls $2, $1.50 event will go to Megeve, France, March 13-20 to represent Canada in the 1971 world championship. While Duguid was established as early favorite to repeat in the national championship which finishes hero Friday, it appears his strongest opposition will come from his Prairie neighbors and British Columbia. Back for the fourth consecutive crack at the national title is Bob Pickering of Avonlea, Sask. Pickering returns here with a reputation of always being close to the top, but never quite making tiie grade. Pickering's third-Garnet Campbell-is playing in his 10th national championship after be-coming Saskatchewan's first skip to win the title in 1955. Campbell, lead Henry Ford and second Jack Keys have all made previous Lrips Lo the final. BALDWIN LIMPING Then there's Alberta's Matt Baldwin and his Derrick Golf and Winter Club rink from Edmonton. Baldwin, who was limping noticeably at Sunday's draw because of a leg injury he picked up in an impromptu wrestling match Friday night, is returning to the championship after an absence of 12 years. However, he previously won the Canadian title for Alberta in 1954, 1957 and 1958. This time he is the only member of his rink with previous national experience, and the question remains whether, at 44, he. is able to pick up his competitive edge once again against a flock of younger opponents. On the other hand, 30-year-old Duke Smale and bis British Columbia rink from Prince George, are considered by many here as the likeliest foursome to upset the Prairies' hopes for mastery. Smale defeated former Canadian champion Lyall Dagg of Vancouver to get here this year. The last time Smale made it to the Canadian final-1969 in Osh-awa, Ont.-it took a perfect 10-0 record by Ron Northoott of Calgary to beat him. Smale was 9-1 that year. There's always the chance of an upset, although four provinces have yet to gain their first championship. They are Newfoundland, New Brunswick, Prince Edward Island, and Quebec. By contrast, Manitoba has won the national event 17 limes, Alberta 11, Saskatchewan, despite a Jate start, five, Ontario three, British Columbia and Nova Scotia twice each, and Northern Ontario once. Of the other entries, some officials credit Northern Ontario's rink, skipped by Bill Tetley of Thunder Bay, with the best outside chance to dump the powerful western groups. Tetley's only previous appearance was in 1957.
