Lethbridge Herald (Newspaper) - March 4, 1971, Lethbridge, Alberta ODDS-MAKER SEES CLOSE FIGHT - Jimmy "The Greek" Snyder of Las Vega* mulls over the possible outcome of Monday's Joe Frazier-Muhammad Ali heavyweight title fight. The odds-maker, who attended the pre-fight physical In Madison Square Garden Wednesday, insists the fight is a "pick 'em" bet. Snyder describes fight as a"pick-6em" encounter NEW YORK (AP) -Jimmy (The Greek) Snyder, the unofficial odds-maker for the United States, insists the Joe Frazier - Muhammad Ali heavyweight title fight Monday night is a "pick 'em" bet although book makers have made Frazier a 7-to-5 favorite. "I called it an even fight from the beginning, and still think it is," the dapper public relations man from Las Vegas Chinooks win two in a row The U of L Chinooks made it two straight as they dumped the Labor Club M in third City Recreation Hockey Le a g u e semi-final meeting last night. The Labor Club picked up the first victory of the best of five semi-final series but now find themselves trailing 2-1 after three games and faced with a do or die situation. One more loss would eliminate the Labor Club from further action. Meanwhile in the other semi-final series between St. Basil's and the M and K Generals, the Saints find themselves in a comfortable 2-0 lead and need only one more victory to clinch a spot in the finals. In last night's contest Jerry Legrandeur opened the scoring with his first of two goals during the contest at the 14:14 mark of the first period allowing the Chinooks to carry a 1-0 lead into the second. Fifty-two seconds into the second period Lome Gray evened the match but watched it broken once again as Tim Negrello and Keith MacDonald tallied for the Chinooks. Don Bruchet closed out the second period scoring with his club still trailing by a one goal margin. Dennis Allen increased the lead to three in the early stages of the final frame as he connected at the 1:50 and 11:24 marks. IT'S HERE NOW THE NEW 1971 YAMAHA 125 The Enduro stylo for excellence.

Clinic, card scheduled for Taber The Department of Youth and the Alberta Boxing Association will co - sponsor an amateur boxing officials' clinic Friday and Saturday at the Taber Recreation Complex. Registration is 7 p.m. Friday at the Complex. Ossie Osland of Edmonton, who officiated at the Canada Winter Games, will be the instructor and the clinic is open to all persons over the age of 16 who are interested in acting as amateur boxing officials and referees. A top amateur boxing card will be held Saturday evening in conjunction with the officials clinic. Starting at eight o'clock in the Civic Centre, the bouts are expected to draw boxers from Taber, Calgary and the Crows-nest Pass. Ten bouts in all are on tap. Tickets may be obtained from any member of the Taber Boxing Club or at the door. Midget action Friday night Action in the third round of the Alberta midget C hockey playoffs is scheduled for the Civic Ice Centre Friday night at 8:30. Lethbridge Midget C will take on Carstairs in the first game of a two - game, total-goal series with the second fixture billed for Carstairs Sunday. In Pee Wee action last night the Bears came up witb good skating game and dumped the Vikings 4-1. The Bears led 1-0 after the first and 2-1 after .the second period before they blasted in two unanswered third period markers. Don Coutts paced the Bears as he tallied twice while Terry Bailley and Vince Petheridge added singles. Gary Calhoun averted the shutout with a second period goal. said today. "It's the people who have turned the odds in Frazier's favor. "Frankly, the fight to me appears so close that I would be afraid to bet a plugged dime on it. "It is strength against strength. Ali normally eats up smaller, bore-in fighters like Frazier. On the other hand, Frazier prefers a dancing, jabbing, back-pedalling target like Ali____" Snyder said he doubts the multi-million-dollar spectacle, which has aroused world-wide interest, will be a big betting show. The Greek said the betting has been subdued by two factors-the economic cut-back and considerable doubts. BIG GAMBLERS GONE "There are no big gamblers any more-the big bettors such as they had in the 1920s," he added. "I suppose the biggest betting fights were those between Jack Dempsey and Gene Tunney, because passions nan so high. "The second Max Schmel-ing-Joe Louis bout was another. That's where I made my debut. I bet $900 on Louis and won $500." Snyder said a bettor would have to assume that the fight is strictly on the square. He attended Wednesday's physical examination of both fighters at Madison Square Garden. Frazier, wearing a heavy beard, predicted he would stop Ali inside 10 rounds. Ali promised it would be "no contest." Then both returned to their camps-Frazier to Philadelphia and Ali to Miami-to continue workouts until they come back Saturday. Vauxhall triumphs The pennant winning Vauxhall B and R Shell of the Taber Commercial Basketball League added the play-off championship trophy to their collection as they dumped the Taber Blues 99-77 last night. B and R Shell went undefeated throughout the league season as they picked up the league title with a 10-0 record and the play-off championship with two wins and no losses. The victory also entitled the Vauxhall club to take part in the Alberta Intermediate Mens championship finals next weekend. In last nights contest Bill Persley paced the B and R Shell with 29 big points while John Beckering added 23 more. For the Taber Blues Bruce Christenson matched Persley's output with 29 points. At half time the Vauxhall squad held a 40-38 lead which they never relinquished. SIGNS WITH ARGOS TORONTO (CP) - George Wells, a defensive end from New Mexico State, has signed a one-year contract with Toronto Argonauts of the Canadian Football League. Thursday, March 4, 1971 - THE LETHBRIDGE HERALD - U Detroit eastoff setting hot pace MacGregor seems to like his new By IAN MacLAINE Canadian Press Sports Writer Bruce MacGregor is discovering, with a measure of satisfaction, that a good housecleaning never hurt anyone-especially where dollars and cents are concerned. Swept aside in an upheaval that has dogged the Detroit Red Wing organization this year, the 29-year-old Edmonton winger appears happy in New York's Madison Square Garden. Currently one of the hottest shooters in the National Hockey League, MacGregor scored three goals and assisted on two others Wednesday night while pacing New York Rangers to an 8-1 win over the visiting California Golden Seals. In other games, Toronto Maple Leafs needed three goals in the final 20 minutes to dump Vancouver Canucks and even their year's series at three games apiece, Jean Pronovost's two goals sparked Pittsburgh Penguins to an upset 4-0 win over Montreal Canadians, Chicago Black Hawks drubbed St. Louis Blues 5-1, and Buffalo Sabres played a 3-3 tie with Los Angeles Kings. Tonight, Vancouver moves into Montreal, California visits Boston Bruins and Philadelphia Flyers entertain Detroit. MacGregor, originally disen- Should have stayed in bed PITTSBURGH (AP) - Nick Harbaruk had a bad day Wednesday. In warmup practice in the morning, the Pittsburgh Penguin right winger was struck on the back of the head with a puck. Three stitches. In pre-game practice before the Penguins-Canadiens National Hockey League game, he caught another puck, on the forehead. Four stitches. At 2:43 of the second period of the game, the 27-year-old Harbaruk was struck above the left-eye by a rising shot off the stick of Montreal's Guy Lapointe. Fourteen stitches in that cut. "I'll have to try to remember if I've had other bad March 3rds," Harbaruk said. chanted by the trade m early February that sent him to New York from Detroit, now has picked up 11 scoring points in Rangers last five games-all New York victories.

(AP) - Boog Powell, last of the reluctant Baltimore Orioles, yielded to a $90,000 contract offer Wednesday. "I didn't get the big one," the American League's Most Valuable Player responded when asked if he had joined teammates Frank Robinson and Brooks Robinson as a member of baseball's expanding $100,000 salary club. "I got a very good raise though and I'm very satisfied," Powell said. The 29-year-old first baseman earned a reported $65,000 last season when he led the world champion Orioles with 35 home runs and 114 runs batted in while hitting .297. Wilson until Rosaire Paiement broke the scoreless tie with Vancouver's goal midway in the second period. That goal looked as if it might stand up until Paul Henderson finally got the equalizer at 6:25 of the third, rookie Billy Mac-Millan the winner exactly 10 minutes later and veteran George Armstrong the insurance goal into an empty Vancouver net with 13 seconds left DEFENCE GOOD Until the third period, the Vancouver defence performed solidly in front of Wilson, keeping the Leafs off balance as they tried to finesse their way into a clear shot with a crisp passing game. But the tenor of the gam* changed when Toronto reverted to its usual form by firing the puck into the corners, digging it out and working a man loose in front of Wilson.
