Lethbridge Herald (Newspaper) - March 5, 1971, Lethbridge, Alberta Friday, March 9. 1971 - THE LETHBRIDGE HERALD - XI, Don Jackson loves his work World's greatest skater Lethbridge guest By PAT SULLIVAN Herald Sports Writer "Ladite; and gentlemen, you have just witnessed possibly the greatest exhibition of skating in the history of the world fi^e skating championships." The voice was that of former vorld champion Don Button at the 1962 world championships at Prague, Czechoslovakia.,His description was that of the performance of Canadian skater Don Jackson of Oshawa, Ont. Jackson, the reigning world professional champion, is a Lethbridge visitor today and will be here until Sunday. He is here as the featured skater for the annual Lethbridge Figure Skating Club's annual ice show. The locals came up with a winner. In every aspect of the word, in Jackson. It doesn't take long to gain an appreciation of the young man on or off the ice. As it stands today, Jackson, is at the pinnacle of a brilliant career and yet, in his own way, his contributions to figure skating have yet to begin. Figure skating has been, since he was eight years old. Don Jackson's way of life. It took time for his devotion to his niohe in life to reach its full rewards. That time has come and wiU continue to reap ben^^ for this truly outstanding ambassador of the sport. From the time he reached world acclaim as champion after his performance at Prague, imtil last year when he won the wwld professional title, HE CERTArNLY IS EASY TO SKATE WITH - Jennifer Chue enjoyed every minute of it Thursday evening as she skated with world champion Donald Jackson of Toronto. Jackson will be a major part of the Lethbridge Figure Skating Club's annua! ice show which opens tonight at the Arena. Watching Jackson and Chue go through their paces are, back, left to right, Mark Hominuke, Shelley Start, Donna Rude end Bill Petrunik. Front row, left to right, are Lisa Vaykovich, Rosemarie Leong, Carolyn Johnson, Shannon Spencer and Ingrid Benniuk. Tonight's show gets under way at eight o'clock. Snowstorm forces one round postponement Curlers face Saturday showdown By AL McNEIL QUEBEC (CP) - The shadow of a Satui-day playoff hung discreetly over the top contenders as they entered the scheduled last day of competition in this year's Canadian curling championship. A quirk of nature Thursday forced an unusual three-round program on the rinks today. A blizzard that lashed Quebec Thursday and blocked all road traffic in the city forced cancel- lation of the night's scheduled ninth rourid. It had to be postponed imti] this morning, while the 10th and 11th rounds-originally scheduled for this morning and afternoon-were moved back to afternoon and evening competitions. This mepjit that top-ranked Manitoba and Northern Ontario -with six wins and one lost each-and Saskatchewan with a 5-2 record, must all play three Spruce Up For Spring BAKED ENAMEL SIDING Give your home new beauty, smartness and appeal with colorful, long lasting CARLTON Aluminum Siding.

Phone 327-1581 rounds today instead of two. Today's new program bad rounds at 7:30 a.m., 12:30 p.m., and 6:30 p.m., MST. A tie finish tonight would mean that the deciding game, or games if a three-way split came about, would have to be played Saturday. TOUGH FOR DUGUID Manitoba's Don Duguid and his defending Canadian champi-onsihip rink from Winnipeg appeared to have the hardest row to hoe today. He had matches scheduled against New Brunswick in the morning, Saskatchewan in the afternoon and British Columbia at night. The B.C. foursome of Kevin Smale had a 5-3 record directly beliind Bob Pickering's Saskatchewan crew from Avonlea. Prince George's Smale had the morning bye. Bill Tetley of Northern On-taaio, who won a lliursday morning seventh-round game against Duguid, 7-6, faced Nova Scotia, Alberta and Prince Edward Island today. Saskatchewan, in addition to its afternoon match with Duguid, had games scheduled against Ontario in the moiiiing and Newfoundland at night. Bunched behind the top fbur in the 11-rink round-robin competition today were Ontario's Bob Charlebois of Toronto with a 44 record; Moncton's Paul Bordage of New Brunswick with a 54 mark; Alberta's Matt Baldwin from Edmonton, also with three wins and four losses; Prince Edward Island's Kip Ready from Charlottetown with a 3-5 mark; Newfoundland's Bob Cole, from St. John's, and Quebec's BiU Ott of Montreal with two wins and five losses each and Truro's Frank Hoar, representing Nova Scotia, with one win and six losses. P.E.L MEETS ALBERTA . In addition to the meetings scheduled for the top rinks, tlie morning round saw Newfoundland and Quebec clash while P.E.L took on Alberta. If the way to victory is through adversity, then Pickering's rink should win the title by default. When Thursday's storm blocked the roads, Pickering and his rink were enjoying a morning bye, but had to get to the arena in time for his afternoon game against B.C. No normal transport was available so the Canadian Curling Association arranged for the Saskatchewan rink to be transported a short part of the four-mile distance by automobile and the remainder on snowmobiles. "They were supposed to send some army vehicles to get us," Pickering said, after he' arrived at the arena soaking wet and 40 minutes after the starting time for his game. LAKESIDE GOLF LEAGUE LETHBRIDGE, ALBERTA Has An Opening For A TEAM SPONSOR Interested Parties, Please Write: Mr. James Reid, PRESIDENT 240B 8th Ave. 'A' North Lethbridge, Alberta Members of the Henderson Lake Golf Club wishing to play in the Lakeside Golf League, please write to: Mr. George K. Higa, SECRETARY 1414 17th St. North Lethbridge, Alberta Jackson thrilled audiences throughout his kingdom as a member of the Ice Follies. Were the seven years he spent as a member of the Ice Follies good years? "The work was hard but enjoyed it," said the personable young man. The work was hard to say the least. In each of the seven years he was a member of the Ice Follies Jackson took part in some 462 performances a year in some 42 weeks each season. We lived out of a suitcase," he said, "but the rewards most times ware great." One of the rewards was Mrs. Jackson, a member of the Ice Follies famous chorus Ime. Together Don and his wife have started on what could be another world champion. They have son who is 2% years old. His wife, who usually accompanies Jackson on his frequent trips such as the one that has brought him to Lethbridge, is at home in Toronto. "We are expecting another addition to the family in April," Jackson said proudly. "Figure skating is my life," Jackson made clear. Together they make a great combination. Jackson, who could be an outstanding coach of figure ska^ ing, has as yet, not tied himself down to a career as a coach. BANFF SCHOOL "I spend two months in the summer in Banff as an instructor," he said. "The rest of the time I spend doing what I am doing in Lethbridge, skatmg in shows such as this." Jackson mil headline the local production of The Nutcracker and along with some 150 members of the Lethbridge Figure Skating Club, will entertain at the Arena tonight at eight and again Saturday afternoon at two and 8 p.m. Jackson pointed out that he felt he could do more for figure skating in his most recent capacity than he could as a coach. Lethbridge officials couldn't agree more. While more than jovial with aU he meets Jackson appears totally devoted to figure skating. The first man ever to complete a triple jump, (a lutz I think he said it was) three rev-olutions and a perfect landing, in world competition, is out'to do all he can for the sport he loves. A quick series of questions brought about some definite answers with the recent world championships still warm in the memories of Canadians. Did Karen Magnussen's performance disappoint Jackson? "No. I had the opportumty to watch Trixi Schuba of Austria last year when I was in Europe and she is a fine skater," replied Jackson. Is too much emphasis put on free skating in Canada? (Mag-nussen and men's champion Toller Cranston were well off the pace in compulsory and school figures before making a comeback - Magnussen finished third while Cranston was nth). Jackson wouldn't say there was too much emphasis on the fi-ee-skating part of the competition but he did hint that maybe the Canadian skaters were more relaxed in their training. "I'm not saying that those who do compete are relaxed but there is a shortage of ice time for some competitors and thus they work harder on the thing that comes easiest to them." NotWng is cut and dried for this seasoned performer, "Can you get yourself up for a show such as the one you will be taking part m here hi Lethbridge?" one bystander asked. "I felt a tingle before each and every performance I gave as an amateur, a pi-ofessional and as a member of the Ice Follies," he said. Thursday afternoon he indicated a tingle as he watched a replay of Ms Prague performance. From all Indications he will again feel a tingle Friday and Saturday as he performs with the Lethbridge Figure Skating Club. Ladies and gentleman, a true champion is in our midst. Estevan coach hit with fine CALGARY (CP) - Coach Ernie McLean of Estevan Bruins has been fined $100 and suspended for one game, the Western Canada Hockey League announced today.

J npHE 42ND ANNUAL CONVENTION of the Alberta Fish and Game Association is now history and at least a few of the delegates went home extremely happy. Dennis Nyal of Clyde won the three - quarter ton Ford tnick with the 11-foot Vanguard camper unit. Total value around $9,000. And, because the lottery was so successful, a few extra prizes were thrown in. Loni Proc of Warburg won a 14-foot aluminum boat and a 9% horsepower motor. Bill Thomson of Clandonald won a 9V2 horsepower motor and Ed Mecele of Edmonton won a 14-foot aluminum boat. ^ Tlae association cleared some $22,000 and participating clubs made another $15,000. With the Canadian Wildl&e Federation in real financial trouble, the association will be contributing $3,300 to that cause this year and in so doing, hope that the Alberta association wiU shame the other provinces into coming through with more.

"I played pretty well," said Nicklaus, wmner of last week's Professional Golfers' Association national championship. "But I had a couple of mental lapses. I guess I was still playing the PGA."
