Frazier and the other guy two and one half million dollars each if they would step into the ring at Madi son Square Garden He didnt even make it they had to All they have to and they lyill do as they please Monday is put on boxing gloves and fighting hot they have to be at least eight inches above the and they will put somewhere between eight and nine hundred thousand dollars in the Is Santa He has and I didnt think it was yet another farce of the socalled fight Frazier will step into the ring Monday evening to face Muhammad or is it Cassius All or is it the Louisville Lip Just who is it Who is this guy with vocal diarrhea that Frazier is to fight Some call him the greatest heavyweight Some say he cant take a punch but then no one has hit Regardless of what people say or think Cassius Clay or Muhammad take your did win the world championship by soundly beating everyone he Besides verbally trouncing his opponents he de feated them where it in the Take your the oddsmakers I made a choice and for the life of me I dont really know why but I have a feeling Frazier will do what no other fighter has been able to defeat The hunch came to me some time If I told you I followed the

Hockey League playoffs get under The locals are in Edmonton to face the Maple Leafs in one semifinal round while Red Deer Rustlers and Calgary Cougars suit up against each other in the leagues remaining Both are a bestofseven The Sugar who finished second to Red Deer during the regular should sideline the The Kings have been playing the soundest hockey of the season of so much so that coach John Chapman hasnt had to lose his it can be may get a chance to blow his top in only true Chapman No one has said it but the way the Alberta Junior Hockey League has been run this year it wouldnt surprise me any if the announcement was made that should Red Deer lose to Calgary there would be an addi tional playoff between the winner of the Sugar King Leaf series to see who ventures further along the playoff If you didnt know it Calgary cannot ad vance past the league playoffs due to overage play This sets up a beautiful situation for the winner of the LeafSugar King If Calgary stops the and I believe they the survivor of the other playoff is automatically I wonder if Alf coach of the Rustlers and a figurehead in the league hasnt had sec ond thoughts about the way the Rustlers finished in first place the Kings will be home next weekend and with any luck at all in the northern could up a berth in the league final in the friendly confines of the Lethbridge gether with five
