Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - March 6, 1974, Lethbridge, Alberta LAS VEGAS EXCURSIONS Priced from til a. Including ratum alrtere from Cetgery, 4 mwqr oirtrM. ART WILLIAMS TRAVEL" CINTRI VILLAQIMAIL PHONE The Lethbridge Herald Lethbridge, Alberta, Wednesday, March Mweh 6, 1t74- THI LETHBHIDOE HERALD 21 UftkrMfiOfllciMmLtf. tt mppfcii MMbirMHi Alfcerte MMMfMtytM-Mii FILING CABINETS Pat Sullivan Joevanaszo, Krikke remain among top 10 in Alberta Junior I was going to do a quote and unquote piece Monday following the "Ed Bruchet Appreciation However, 1 decided to wait, and I'm glad I did. For those of you who missed the night of nostalgia I sympathize, to a degree. There were a lot of names I had no idea who the people were but someone must have. There was applause at the end of each name mentioned. It was great for me. I got to see guys I went to school with 15 years ago and haven't seen since. I also met some very fine people for the first time, but hopefully not the last. Mind you, after some investigating, I may have to bypass a very generous offer for some golf at Nelson this summer. Gus Adams, who looks Italian but says he's Greek, Mickey Maglio, who is Italian and says he is, and Seth Martin, who claims to be neither Greek nor Italian, invited me to stop and play some golf. Well, fellows, I'm not part mountain goat and secondly I'm not Rockerfeller. At the best of times I have trouble staying on the straight and narrow on a level golf course let alone one that is all hills. Besides that, I very seldom break 100. What would I do with guys who. are one and two handicappers. Maybe I can teach them some bottle pool. If you were at the gathering Saturday night you would have sat in on an exchange of pleasantries between Scotty Munro, owner coach of the Calgary Centennials of the Western Canada Hockey League and Rod Carey of the Medicine Hat Tigers of the same league. Munro, who had the misfortune of speaking first, took a shot at Jack Shupe, Tigers' coach. According to Munro, a coach is only as good as his players. That's why Shupe, the worst coach in hockey according to Munro, got to the Memorial Cup last year. Carey, in a surprising comeback, told Munro and the crowd that as soon as the calibre of the WCHL got better so would the Medicine Hat coaching staff. I thought bills only showed up at race meet time. I found out differently this past weekend. Ed Bruchet, the reason the people were on hand Saturday, always seemed to be on his last two dollars. At least that's the impression he gave his players. "Ed always had a said Vic Stasiuk. He would slip it to a player and tell him "spend it wisely, it's my last duece." The truth was out Saturday, Bruchet kept a roll of bills in his pocket. Knowing Ed, however, he went through all the dueces he had and then some. Monsignor Murray, who has been called everything but a prophet, came close Saturday night. The featured speaker, Monsignor Murray told the gathering what he considered, were the eight most famous words in hisjtory, as spoken by Winston Churchill. "Never, never, never give up. Never, never, never." He chuckled when he told the crowd Edward Heath should pay heed to those words. Heath resigned Monday. Murray, among other things, asked for a moment's silence in honor of Tim Horton, the veteran National Hockey League star who had passed away recently in a car accident. Since that time a portion of a column that appeared in the Los Angeles Times has been brought to my attention by another Ed Bruchet, a nephew to Ed. It has a little message for all of us I think so let me pass it on the way it appeared in the Times. She is 15, her father died a few years ago and "never had no respect for anyone 'cept Tim Horton." An anonymous, young hockey fan wrote that to the Buffalo Evening News about the death of Horton. The girl wrote she first met Horton after a Sabres' practice session and "first I was scared cuz he looked really strong and mean. But we got to talking and I told him I didn't have no father and he told me something I'll never forget. He said: Just becuz someone's left the earth doesn't mean they're dead. You're only dead if you're forgotten and not loved. If you still have a place for that person in your heart, they're still with you and will never be dead. They've only taken a trip, a long trip "I guess I've learned a lot from the girl continued. "But I never cried as hard as when I beared Horton went on that trip Wittchen all but locks up scoring race Captain Terry Wittchen of Red Deer Rustlers has all but locked up the scoring title with four games remaining in the Alberta Junior Hockey League schedule. Statistics released .Tuesday show Wittchen with 98 points 48 goals and 50 assists good for a nine point lead over teammate Brian Sutler, who has 39 goals and .50 assists. Rookie Jerry Bancks of Calgary Canucks is in third place with 77 points 44 goals and 33 assists. Ron Bourcier of Red Deer leads the goaltenders with a 3.18 goals against average. Brent McCracken of the Pass Red Devils leads in penalty minutes with 292. Edmonton Mets are the most penalized team minutes. Meanwhile eight players took care of the scoring as the Pass Red Devils whipped Lethbridge Longhorns 8-3 in a league game Tuesday night in Blairmore. Brian Grandfield, Stan Alstad, Bob Dittrich, Brent McCracken, Brent Sim, Wayne Turner, John Hawkins and Lyle Murray scored for the Red Devils, who led 2-1 after the first period and 4-1 after the second. Ken Klinkhammer, Ron Krikke and Al Dumont scored for the Longhorns, who were late in arriving for the game because of poor road conditions caused by a storm that sumped a foot of snow on the Blairmore district Tuesday. The Red Devils, who .took six of 11 minor penalties and one of two majors in the game, outshot the Longhorns 33-27. The pass played without coach John Chapman, who received, minor-injuries in a car train accident near Blairmore Monday. He was replaced by manager Dick Koentges. In Calgary Jerry Bancks scored three consecutive goals in the first period to lead Calgary Canucks to a 6-1 victory over Red Deer Rustlers. Dean Magee, Terry McFaul and Don Eastcott did the rest of Calgary's scoring as the Canucks carved out period leads of 3-0 and 4-1. Rod Pimm scored for the Rustlers, who took four of the game's 10 minor penalties and the lone major. Each team' had 42 shots on goal. In Druraheller Jim Bertram's goal at of the third period, his second of the game, gave Drumheller Falcons a 3-2 verdict over Edmonton Mets. Ron Rose scored the other Drumheller goal as the Falcons finally pulled away from the Mets after the teams Clipper Queens host provincial 'A' finals The Lethbridge Collegiate Institute Clipper Queens are probably getting a little nervous with the Alberta high school "A" girls' basketball championship finals just two days away. Eight teams will take part in the 1973-74 Alberta gals classic which will be staged at the LCI gymnasium Friday and Saturday. Joining the host Clipper Queens in the two-day modified double-knockout event will be E. P. Scarlett and Western Canada of Calgary, M E. LaZerte and St. Francis Xavier of Edmonton, Medicine Hat High School, Slettler and Grande Prairie. M. E. LaZerte and SteUler will open the tourney with a four o'clock match Friday afternoon and will be followed at with a tilt between E. P. Scarlett and Medicine Hat. Edmonton St. Francis will take on Calgary Western Canada at seven o'clock while .the final game of the firs! round will see the host Clipper Queens matching baskets with Grande Prairie at The consolation semi-finals are set to go at nine o'clock and Saturday morning white the championship semi- final encounters are slated for 12 o'clock noon and in the afternoon. The final three games of OK tourney will see the consolation final at three o'clock, the third place final at seven o'clock and the championship final at Meanwhile rumors have it that the host Clipper Queens. E. P. Scarlett, Western Canada. M. E. LaZerte and Grande Prairie could be the teams to beat in the annual playoffs. Here is a run-down of the co- favorites with the exception of the Clipper Queens. E. P. Scarlett Captured the 1973-74 Calgary "A" girls' basketball title. They had a league and playoff record of 18 wins and no losses and an over-ail record of 23 victories and two losses. Have lots of height with six girls or better. Lori Chizik and Dawna Korlgaard will lead their teammates in the weekend action. Both girls made the All-City team in Calgary this year. Western Canada Posted a 12-2 record in league play this season. Won the Lindsay Thurber tourney in Red Deer which included majority of teams from Calgary and Edmonton. Have a fairly tall team with five players 5'9" or better. Hold the second and fourth top scorers in the Calgary league this year in ftatfe Letts and Darlene Holomis respectively. Only sour point is that they have been beaten by both the Clipper Queens and E. P. Scarlett this season. M. E. LaZerte Finished the 1973-74 season undefeated with a 22-0 record. They blend a group of strong, aggressive players utilizing speed and rebounding. Earned a spot in the provincials by defeating Bonnie Doon 41-34 and St. Francis 49-30. Sherry Stevenson, who was one of the top scorers in the provincial finals last year will be back to haunt the teams again. GraDde Prairie Compiled an impressive 20-1 record this season. They walked away with three of four tourney titles this year and their only loss was to a college team from Prince George. The team possesses plenty of speed with a well- balanced attack. MATTHEWS INKS CASA GRANDE. Ariz. (AP> San Francisco Giants signed Gary Matthews to a 1974 contract Monday, leaving Garry Maddox as the only unsigned player on the baseball team's 34-man roster. Giant executive Jerry Donovan refused to disclose the terms of the contract with Matthews. had played on equal terms through a scoreless first period and a four-goal second frame. Bertram missed two chances for a third goal, hitting the goal post twice after Edmonton had pulled their goaltender hi a late bid to tie the game. Tony Lecuyer and Greg Topoliniski scored for the Mets, who were outshot 29-26. Drumheller took eight of 13 minor penalties and. one of two fighting majors, with Edmonton assessed a five minute butt ending sentence.
