In another rough game Tuesday night, Regina Pats scored a 5-2 victory over Flin Flon Bombers. Edmonton Oil Kings edged Calgary Centennials 3-2 and Swift Current Broncos downed Winnipeg Jets 4-1. At Brandon, a bundle of Estevan sticks were thrown onto the ice right after the game. Then referee Bud Ulrich tried to get off the ice and into his dressing room, but was blocked. Estevan players skated around Ulrich, who moved to the scorekeeper's box, apparently to issue more penalties. The game's records were then ripped up by a number of Este-van's players, apparently in protest against some of the referee's earlier calls. Brandon shut out Estevan on goals by Larry Krutish, Dwayne Pentland, Jerry Du dar and Dale Cook.

(AP) - Major league baseball formalized a ban on unofficial stimulants and discussed disciplinary action in the event of any abuses as the first organized drug education program in team sports history got underway Tuesday. Representatives of nine teams -Atlanta, Baltimore, Houston, Montreal, Kansas City, Washington, Chicago White Sox, New York Yankees and Los Angeles Dodgers-were on hand for the first of three seminars in the program initiated by Commissioner Bowie Kuhn. Kuhn emphasized that, while "there have been some cases" of drug abuse among major league players, the intent of the program was to educate team personnel "to thwart the development of a serious problem," in the future. "The program was initiated because we feel the growing use of drugs by young people in this country will sooner or later present a serious problem for baseball unless we educate." Kuhn said the use of amphetamines, without prescription by a physician, fell into the category of "illegal drug activity." Amphetamines, also called pep pills, bennies, speed, greenies and a number of other names, generally are considered artificial stimulants and are supposed to allow the athletes to perform better. ADMITS TAKING DRUG Chuck Dobs on, a pitcher for the Oakland A's, recently said publicly that he used greenies Kuhn said he could not comment on Dobson's statement since he did not know whether the greenies had been taken under doctor's order, but did say that any abuses would be met with disciplinary action. Kuhn said such policies have been in effect before but hac" not previously been formalized Seminars covering the other teams in baseball will be held in Tampa, Fla., today and in Phoenix, Ariz., March 18. Cranbrook thumped SPOKANE (AP) - Gail Holden scored three goals Tuesday as Spokane Jets thun dered to a 10-3 victory over Cranbrook Royals in the first game of a best-of-seven Western International Hockey League semi-final series. Cranbrook drew 19 minor penalties and two majors in the penalty-filled game. The Jets received nine mnors, two majors and a 10-minute misconduct. Spokane's other goals were collected by Bob Stoyko, Ken Gustafson, Gordon T u r 1 i k, Charlie Goodwin, Bob Trem-becky, Dave Toner and George Talotti. Billy Martin, Bob Apps and Bob Clyne scored for Cranbrook. The six goals gave the Bruins 307, four more than the mark they set in the 1968-69 season. The win also left them one short of tying the record for most wins in a season-46-set by Montreal Canadiens in 1968-69. And when Wayne Cashman scored the first goal of the game Tuesday night, he became the ninth Bruin to score 20 or more goals in a season. Wayne Carleton, who scored two goals for the Bruins, got the record-setting 304th goal at 2:10 of the second period when his slap shot from just inside the blue line dribbled in off Cesare Maniago's pads to make the score 3-0. Carleton got his other goal in the third period, esposito scores The Bruins, who fired 33 shots at Maniago, 17 in the first period, also got goals from Ed Westfall, Cashman, Phil Esposito, and Derek Sanderson. Esposito's goal was his 53rd of the season and with 16 games to play in the regular season he is sue goals away from breaking the individual record of most goals in a season-58 set by Bobby Hull of Chicago Black Hawks in 1968-69-and eight points away from breaking his own record for most points scored in a season-126. In games tonight, Montreal Canadiens play the Penguins at Pittsburgh, California Golden Seals are at New York against the Rangers, Buffalo Sabres meet the Kings in Los Angeles, Chicago Black Hawks play the Blues at St. Louis and Vancouver Canucks meet the Maple Leafs in Toronto. Meanwhile Gordie Howe, the veteran Detroit Red Wing right winger, has cleared up some of the mystery surrounding bis absence from the team. The ailing Howe, recovering from an injured left wrist, has revealed his whereabouts in a telephone call to Detroit from Key Largo, Fla. I went bonefishing ... but mostly I've just been lying on the beach," Howe said. Howe said rumors that he plans to quit are untrue. "I don't expect to play the Thursday game at Philadelphia," he said. "But I'll be back for the weekend home games." He also said he intends to return for his 26th season next year. Howe had been sent to the sunny south on orders from Red Wing owner Bruce Norris. The all-time NHL scorer has been plagued with injuries this season, including a torn rib cartilage and a painful arthritic condition in his left wrist. BOSTON � MINNESOTA  First Period - 1.

Flanking Karren, one of the club's top scorers, are Glen Tanaka, left and Ned Bosnjak. Sugar Kings will play in the nine-team Southwest Zone championship tournament this weekend at Winston Churchill High School in Lethbridge. It's tournament time in south hoop circles Nearly every Southern Al-1 berta high school will take part in boys basketball action over the weekend as two big tournaments have been organized to determine the best in two divisions in the sunny south. Winston Churchill High School will host the biggest tournament as 11 high schools will take part in a three - day Southwest "B" Boys Basketball Tournament. Meanwhile the Southern Alberta "A" Boys Basketball League pennant winning Raymond Comets will entertain the other top three teams in the conference for a sudden-death play-off tournament to decide the league's representatives in the Provincial finals. In the Southwest "B" Boys tournament 11 teams will participate in the single knockout affair gunning for the championship and a berth m the "B" Boys- provincial finals which will also be hosted by the Winston Churchill High School the following weekend. Included in the 11 participating teams are: the host Winston Churchill Bulldogs, Vaux-hall Vikings; Kate adnrews Gaels of Coaldale; Picture Butte Sugar Kings, league champions of the Southwest conference; Stirling Lakers second place finishers in the conference; Erie Rivers of Milk River; W. R. Meyers of Taber; F. P. Walshe from Fort Mac-leod; and three non-conference clubs, the Horace Allen High School of the Crowsnest Pass, Willow Creek Composite of Claresholm and the Matthew Halton High School of Pincber Creek. The tourney opener is set for 5:30 p.m. Thursday night with two more games following at 7 p.m. and 8:30 p.m. Action will continue Friday at 4 p.m. and will be followed by three more games, with the last one set for 9:15 p.m. Saturday will be the last day of tournament play with four games on tap. The third place contest is slated for 7 p.m. while the championship game follows right after at 8:45. Raymond is the site for the Southern Alberta "A" Boys play-off as four teams will be fighting it out for two openings in the provincial finals held in Calgary the weekend after. This also will be a three-day tournament, but will start Friday evening and end Monday. The tourney opener will feature the Magrath Zeniths and the LCI Rams Friday at 7 p.m. while the second schedule contest is set for 8:30 pjn. between the Comets and the Catholic Central Cougars. Magrath picked up second spot in the "A" Boys Confer ence while the Rams finished right behind in third. The interesting note here, is that the second and third place finisher was decided in the final league encounter between the two clubs. Going into that final match the two clubs held identical 6-3 records. The host Comets should be considered the favorites of the tournament as they picked up their second consecutive undefeated league title. So far this season the Comets have dropped only one contest at the hands of the Rams, in the LCI Invitational tournament. Their opponents the CCHS Cougars ended the season in the final play-off spot, but can't be dealt with lightly. Their respectable season record of 5-5 shows only a small portion of their capabilities and could he considered the dark horse of the tourney. Meanwhile in Girls basketball competition the LCI Clipper Queens will travel to Edmonton over the weekend to represent Southern Alberta in the provincial girls finals. In the past eight years the Clipper Queens have reigned as Alberta champs four times and just failed to make it five last year. This year nine zones will be represented in all which include: Grand Prairie, Eastglen of Edmonton, Harry Ainley of Edmonton, Salisbury, Red Deer, Calgary Bowness, Medicine Hat and the Clipper Queens. The Clipper Queens basketball record is somewhat similar to that of the Raymond Comets who have dominated the local boys basketball scene for so many years. This season the Clipper Queens have yet to taste a defeat and own a 19-0 record which includes two tournament titles while last year the girls finished off the year at 24-1 with their only loss being in the Alberta finals. In the past three years all told, the girls own an unbelievable 75-3 record. Penal- 7-JJ -22 Heart attack proves fatal EAST LANSING, Mich.
