Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - March 1, 1974, Lethbridge, Alberta Friday, March 1, 1974 THE LETHBRIDQE HERALD 13 Howe and sons dominate scene By The CANADIAN PRESS Houston Aeros and the Howe family continue to dominate the Western Division of the World Hockey Association. A three-goal performance by rookie Mark Howe, with adequate assistance from his father Gordie, helped the Aeros win 9-4 over Chicago Cougars Thursday night. Veteran Frank Hughes also scored three goals for Houston. Gordie Howe's four assists moved him four points ahead of Minnesota Fighting Saints' Mike Walton in the individual scoring race. Gordie set up all of Mark's goals. Toronto Toros shut out Winnipeg Jets 3-0, Quebec Nord.iques defeated Vancouver Blazers 9-4, New England Whalers tied 3-3 with New Jersey Knights and Cleveland Crusaders and Min- nesota tied 6-6. Winnipeg 0 Toronto 3 Toros' game played in Ottawa was only 57 seconds old when Wayne Carleton beat Jets' goalie Joe Daley on a set-up from defenceman Carl Brewer. Guy Trottier's 22nd goal of the campaign raised Toros' lead to 2-0 before the period ended. New Jersey 3 New England 3 Whalers' goalie Al Smith kicked the puck into his own net to give the Knights a 2-0 lead after Craig Reichmuth had opened the scoring moments earlier. New Jersey fell behind 3-0 when Andre Lacrois scored his 25th goal of the season, but the Whalers bounced back for the tie. Vancouver 4 at Quebec 9 Johnny McKenzie's 14th goal of the season broke Quebec goalie Richard Brodeur's hopes for a shutout midway through the second period. The Nordiques then pushed the score to 9-1 before the Blazers replied with three more goals. Cleveland 6 at Minnesota 6 A goal by Steve Cardwell at of the third period tied the score for the sixth time and provided the Fighting Saints a split in points with the Crusaders.

The 25-year- old Roberto, injured in an off- season accident, missed the first 38 games of the National Hockey League campaign. ADVANCE TO FINAL MONCTON, N.B. (CP) Ivy Lord skipped her rink to 11 straight victories, including an 11-3 triumph in the final game Wednesday, to take the New Brunswick senior women's curling championship.

SHOOTERS SCOREBOARD PLAINSMAN SPORTS Last year it was Houston this year it was Chicago. The event was the National Sporting Goods Association Annual Show. I was one of 35.000 prospective buyers viewing sporting goods exhibits in that windy convention city last week. This is often the first opportunity of the year to get one's hands on new catalogues and price sheets. 1974 promises to be a challenging year. There will be shortages, some a spin-off from the energy crisis, some contrived and some real. Only those dealers who know their business and are willing or order in depth will have goods on the rack come the sel'' j season. Prices have sky rocketed for Japanese and Scandinavian imports. Other European products have shown less sp- tacular increases. American prices appear amazingly solid with smi increases and oc- cassionally none at all. This is clearly a year when North American goods will have all the advantages in price. In 'act I would not be sur- prised to hear of an American firm exporting transistor radios to Japan. Naturally I spent most of my time in the hunting and gun area, which is by far the largest segment of the show in any event. If hunting and shooting are not having record growth in the past two years they certainly must be coming close to it. I had a close-up look at Winchester's new Super X semi- automatic shotgun. This shotgun is machined steel of classic design, and with a record 2.7 million dollars worth of engineering and proning built in. Winchester will also offer a complete new semi- auto. 22. also of quality design and workmanship. Guess where this one is make? Cobourg. Ontario friends and from here it goes to Winchester's world wide markets. First quality gun ever made in Canada. Remington announced its Model 3200 over and under shotguns at Houston last year, but they'are just now trickling their way to the market. This years' news is a completely redesigned stock for the famous Model 700 big game rifle. Surprise, you won't have to wait a year to see one. We have them in stock now. with checkering, slim lines, new finish and all! Varmint hunters will be delighted with two Speer full jacketed bullets designed just for them. But don't rush down to get some. May is the earliest delivery. Redfied and Leopold are offering new lightweight high magni- fication telescope sights, with the Leopold being just a little lighter and more compact. Sorry to say l can't cover even a fraction of the products in this column. Drop down and see us the new catalogues we nave, and the products are just a few weeks away from delivery. ttUKMU SPORTS HI WESTERN CANADA'S LEADING SJP- PL1f.fl OF QUALITY FIREARMS.

Brooks tied the National Hockey League record for the most consecutive victories Thursday night as the Bruins thumped Detroit Red Wings 8- 1. He shared the night's honors with team-mate Phil Esposito, who reached another milestone with his 450th and 451st career goals. The Leafs' new policy, an- nounced earlier in the week by coach Red Kelly, paid off as they defeated New York Islanders 6-4 with Doug Favell in goal. Kelly said Wednesday he was going to use Favell until he loses. The Leafs have Ed Johnston and Dune Wilson to fill in when Favell falters. In other games Thursday, Montreal Canadians blasted Pittsburgh Penguins 7-1, Chi- cago Black Hawks were held to a 2-2 tie by Buffalo Sabres, Minnesota North Stars tied Philadelphia Flyers 2-2 and Los Angeles Kings moved to within one point of a playoff position in the West Division by defeating fourth-place Atlanta Flames 3-1. STILL A ROOKIE Brooks, 36, of Toronto, who played almost all his junior hockey for Barrie Flyers of the Ontario Hockey Association Major A series, is an NHL rookie. He had 28 saves as he registered his 14th consecutive victory, equalling the record set by Boston goalie Tiny Thompson in the 1929-30 season. The Bruins have not been beaten with Brooks starting in goal since Oct. 23, when they lost 3-2 to St. Louis Blues. Esposito became the ninth player in NHL history to reach the 450-goal mark when he scored his 52nd of the season in the second period. He got his second goal of the game in the third. First game of finals to Miners The 1973-74 pennant winning Miners' Library drew first blood in the City Recreation Hockey League championship playoff finals Wednesday night. The Miners jumped to a one- game lead in their best of five final series against Purity Bottling by scoring an easy 6-1 victory. Gary Schmidt paced the Miners' attack with a pair of goals while singles came off the sticks of Greg Hodgin, Cam Hodgin. Larry Boulton and Gary Canadine. Dennis Oberg notched a pair of goals in a losing cause. The second game of the series will be staged Monday night at at Henderson. Ken Hodge, who added one goal for the Bruins, has 41 goals for the season and needs only two more to hit the 250 plateau. Paul Henderson scored three times in the third period to rally the Leafs. Daryl Sittler, Tim Ecclestone and Borje Salming were the other marksmen for the winners. Brian Spencer, Ed Westfall, Denis Potvin and Billy Harris shared the Islanders' goals. Foreman named in law suit LAS VEGAS, Nev. (AP) George Foreman, world heavyweight boxing champion, has been named in a ?2.5 million suit charging him with breach of contract. The action also seeks an injunction that might postpone Foreman's schedule title bout with Ken Norton next month. The suit was filed by KO and lists Foreman, Charles Dick Sadler, Foreman's trainer and former manager; Leroy Jackson, another Foreman associate, and three corporations. The injunction wo-.ld prevent any of the defendants from entering into any agreement for collection and disbursement of ancillary rights to the bout with Norton at Caracas, Venezuela, March 26. Robert Reid, the lawyer representing KO Inc., said the suit resulted from an alleged contract Jan. between Foreman and Sadler and KO Inc., in which they assertedly agreed that KO Inc., would be the exclusive representative for all ancillary rights from any of Foreman's fights between 1971 and 1975. Reid said Foreman allegedly agreed that KO Inc. would be the exclusive promoter for his first title defence if he ever gained the championship. Video Techniques In., which arranged the closed circuit television of Foreman's first defence against Joe King Roman in Tokyo last year, also is handling the Foreman Norton bout. The suit alleges the defendants violated the contract by giving Video Techniques exclusive rights to the Tokyo bout and by prohibiting KO Inc. from promoting that fight. The action seeks million in damages from Foreman and Sadler and million punitive damages. In addition to Foreman. Sadler and Jackson, the suit filed in U.S. District Court here last Friday also names George Foreman Development, a California corporation; George Foreman Ltd.. a Pennsylvania group, and Promotall Inc. George Foreman Ltd.. and Foreman also have suits pending against each other in federal court in San Francisco. MONTREAL 7, PITTSBURGH 1 Pint period 1. Montreal, Larose 7 P. Mahovlich) 2. Montreal, P.
