Herald Sports On the rock Alberta skip, Hec Gervais, watches as Warren Hansen, second and Darrell Sutton, lead, sweep rock into the house during the second round of the Canadian men's curling championships at London, Ont. Held Saskatchewan scoreless for seven ends Gervais made it look easy LONDON, Ont. (CP) The Great Western confrontation fizzled at the Canadian men's curling championship Monday and Bob Dillon of Charlottetown upset highly- regarded Ontario in first- round games. Hec Gervais' rink from St. Albert, Alta., blanked Larry McGrath's Kindersley, Sask., foursome for seven ends while coasting to an 8-4 win while Dillon, in his seventh Canadian playoff, survived two in the 12th before taking a 5-4 extra-end win over Paul Savage's Toronto four. That set the stage for an early key game in the cham- pionship in the second round of play Monday night with P.E.I, going against Alberta. In other second-round matches, Nova Scotia played British Columbia, Ontario faced Northern Ontario, Saskatchewan met Quebec, New Brunswick played Newfoundland and Manitoba drew the bye. While the Alberta- Saskatchewan, Ontario-P.E.I. games were the feature attraction in the first round, Manitoba's Don Barr from Glenboro surprised Jim Armstrong and his Rich- mond, B.C., mates 8-4 with three in the final end after de- liberately blanking the llth to hold last rock. ROSS RALLIES In other games, Quicker Ross of Sudbury, representing Northern Ontario, scored five in the last three ends to edge Fred Wight of St. John's. Nfld., 7-6 and John Clark of Fredericton stole three in the 12th end to beat Barry Shearer's Nova Scotia crew from Halifax 9-7. Gervais, the 1961 Canadian and world champion in his third trip to the finals, said he couldn't understand why Sas- katchewan failed to give them a tougher battle. The Albertans had a 6-0 lead before Saskatchewan finally counted one in the eighth. "Larry was probably just a little nervous, this being his first trip to the said the 40-year-old produce fanner whose rink, along with Savage's, was rated as co- favorite to take the championship prior to the opening round. "Larry had a little trouble with his weight. It's happened to me a couple of Ger- vais added. He said that when Alberta stole two in the fifth end, McGrath "has got to play a different game." "It's always tougher to catch up when you're down." Bladettes advance The Nobleford Bladettes advanced to the 1973-74 Alberta high school "C" girls' championships by defeating St. Mary's of Cardston 39-36 in Taber over the weekend. The two teams had reached the championship playoff final after eliminating teams from Taber. Lundbreck and Nanton in modified single knockout draw. Taber St. Mary's Auroras captured the consolation title in the playoff series by edging Lundbreck 46-44. Susan McDonald was named the tourney's most valuable player while teammate Jane Pavka was selected to the all- star team. Both players toil with Taber. Other all-star recognition went to Carolyn Sjorgren and Shirley Sjorgren of Nobleford, Nancy Jenson of Lundbreck and Jacey Fox of Cardston. The Bladettes will now compete for the provincial championships to be staged in Fairview this weekend. Is he the greatest lover since, shall we say Joe Namath Secretariat has a big date By RED SMITH New York Times Service NEW YORK Secretariat, the most publicized lover since Casanova or, anyway. Joe Namath, has a date this week with a bit of fluff who has been looking forward to the occasion since Nov. 6. That autumn day, when the big red colt was to make his race track valedictory with a ceremonious appearance at aqueduct his mail included a postcard signed "Fiji." It read: "I can't wait" Fiji is a broodmare owned by Walter Salmon's Mereworth Farm, Lexington, Ky., one of the two courtesans booked this week into Secretariat's love nest on Claiborne Farm out the Paris Pike. Fiji will be either the fifth or sixth thoroughbred to receive Secretariat's favors, depending on whether she or her harem sister gets to the boudoir first. Since the Seraglio opened a fortnight ago, the coirs performance as a gay deceiver has had a distinctly international flavor. The partner of his first liaison was My Card, a daughter of My Babu and one of Man O' War's granddaughters. Ace Card. My Carti, won the Seiima Stakes at Laurel a decade ago. is an ail- American girl even though her sire was a foreigner. Since his date with her, however. Secretariat has romanced Gleam, a French mare who raced in England, and the Jap- anese-owned Rotonella, daughter of the Italian Ribot Secretariat's official studbook does not take into account the three morganatic marriages he contracted December with cold-blooded mares, two of whom are now in foal. It is too early to determine whether his dalliance in his own social class will bear fruit His stablemate Riva Ridge, who also had a fling with three lest mares in December without getting any of them in trouble, has began his career as a Lothario, too. He has been bred to three mares, has two more engagements this week. Stud grooms at Claiborne call him Speedy Gonzalez. So much has been written and broadcast about these two flunking their fertility tests that news of their current activities may come as a surprise to some readers. This is the situation: With both horses, laboratory tests were good in aH respects except one the presence in the semen of immature cells called spermatogonia Because of these cells, the three veterinarians conducting the tests could not certify the horses" fertility. However, laboratory tests are not conclusive. The 1956 Kentucky Derby winner, Tomy Lee. passed his lab tests without difficulty but in his six-year stud career he got only nine registered foals. On the other hand, two stallions whose tests also showed spermatogonia, are enjoying some success as sires. One of these. Reviewer, got 67 per cent of his mares in foal in his first season. 71 per cent in his second and 62.5 per cent last year: the score of the other. Big Joker, is 66.7. 85 and 85. "It is our unanimous opinion that the stallions will get mares in the doctors reported about Secretariat and Riva Ridge. They recommended that both "proceed with a normal breeding schedule" to reflect the true degree of fertility. Secretariat had been syndicated as a stallion for and Riva Ridge for The syndicate arrangements were terminated and supplemental agreements drafted. Subscribers who wished to withdraw were free to do so and their down payments would be refunded in Secretariat's case, or 10 per cent of the cost of a share, in the Riva Ridge, syndicate or 25 per cent. Mrs. Helen Tweedy, whose Meadow Stable still owns both horses, said Sunday that only one member of the Secretariat syndicate, Howard Keck, pulled oat LETHBRIDQE OFFICE FURNITUl Uww UM! mi MHWtaf MM TO.
