Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - March 7, 1973, Lethbridge, Alberta Wtdnodcy, March 7, 1973 THE LRHBRIDGE HKALD _ JVeto Brunsivick a surprise second so far The rest waiting for Manitoba to lose By JOHN SHORT EDMONTON (CP) An un- sung rink from Chatham has made an early bid to place New Brunswick in the winner's circle for the first time In the 44-year history of the Canadian curling championships. Lou Dugre, the smallest skip in the competition, steered his rink to two successive Victories Massachusetts tied North Da- ed runner-up to Canada for the Massachusetts Is In second Stan Fischler's Inside Hockey WHEN I wrote 'Derek San- derson's autobiography, "I've Got.To Be I spent a good deal time wondering just who, or what was the real "Me" Derek was talking about. I still don't know, at least not for. sure. But I do know that between 30 to 95 per cent of what Derek says these days is to be taken with two grains of salt, three sour grapes and one egg; the kind he laid in Philadelphia. Although I am not one of them, there are some people who are getting downright disgusted with Sanderson. Mostly, they are people who don't like con jobs, particu- larly the kind Derek perpe- trated on the World Hockey Association. One such chap is columnist Jim Taylor The Vancouver Sun. "We are now accepting memberships in a new or- writes Taylor. "It's called the 'Tired of Derek Sanderson Club' and you have to admit it fills a crying need. Our motto says it all: 'Will the Real Derek Sanderson Please Shut Up'." That would be like asking Niagara Falls to flow uphill, although there were a few naive types who actually thought Derek would pipe down just a bit after he took his Philadelphia money and rejoined the Boston Bruins. Sanderson showed them. He quickly checked in to his Daisy Buchanan's bar in Bos- ton and, within two hours, he had insulted more hockey people than there are Irish in Beantown. It's tough Manitoba's Jim Pettapiece, the second, takes a breath- er during Ihe fourth round of the Canadian men's curling championships In Edmonton Tuesday. The Manitoba rink remaini undefeated after the four draws ployed 1hus far. Short sport STATUS UNCERTAIN ST. PETERSBURG, Fla.

The 41-year-old slugger las said a decision on whether IB will play during the regular season will depend on the condi- tion of his knees. POWELL SIGNS MIAMI, Fla. (AP) Balti more Orioles' slugger Boog Powell agreed to salary terms for an estimated Tues- day, concluding a six day spring training holdout. The 31- year-old first baseman is be- lieved to have accepted a token pay cut of about alter hit- ting only 21 home runs last sea- son, all but four in the final three months. JOHNSON TO INDIANS CLEVELAND (AP) Cleve- land Indians announced Tues- day the acquisition of right- handed relief pitcher Jerry Jolvnson from San Francisco Gi- ants for an undisclosed amount ol money. Johnson, 29, led the National League with 10 wins in relief in 1970. He had an 8-6 record and an ERA of .444 last year. Not surprisingly, his first target was The City of Broth- erly Love. 'The trouble with the Bla- said Sanderson, "is partly because they're in Philadelphia. If you moved that team to say, Montreal, or Boston, or even Cleveland they'd probably be in first or second place." Derek then put down the. erstwhile Blazers manager, Dave Creighfon, and Phil Watson, who eventually be- came coach. Sanderson al- lowed that despite all the annoyances, he really did want to rejoin the Blazers after his late fall injury. "I'd finally come around and decided to make the most of said Sanderson. "You know, if I had to play in Philadelphia I was going to give it my best. Then, they pulled that bit on me about not letting me play even though I was ready." The speculation had it that the Bruins would unload Sanderson as soon as they had re-signed him. But man- ger Harry Sinden always has been a Sanderson man. As long as the Boston players accepted Derek and no rebel- lions erupted, he would be a Bruin, at least for the time being. "There's been a little ani- Sanderson allowed, "but not much. Nothing I didn't expect though. The guys who were my friends Oashman, Mike Walton, Phil Esposito, Eddie Jolmston are still my friends. They're great guys." Tuesday on the second day of the round-robin competition and moved into sole possession of second place behind undefeated Manitoba. Dugre went to an extra end to post an 8-7 victory over the Quebec rink skipped by Dave toon of Montreal in the fourth round Tuesday afternoon after a comparatively easy 10-7 vic- the opening-day hero, im Ward and his New- oundiand rink from, Labrador City. After his defeat, Ward de- scribed Dugre as "the hottest shooter hi the whole thing right now." "I've never played him be- fore, but I've seen good curling and little Louis is as good as any." Dugre insisted Tuesday night that the heavy, swingy hasn't affected him much. 'There are some things you can have to adjust." CURLING POORLY He said he is curling poorly now by comparison with 1971 when he skipped a rink to vic- tory in the Canadian Legion championship, "but the ice con ditions take about 10 per cen off your top totals." At 5-7 and 130 pounds, Dugre is the smallest per hops the smallest player in the competition. Jim Pettapiece of Winnipeg second on the not-shooting Danny Fink rink that repre- sents Manitoba, said during the annual curlers' dinner Tuesda night that, because of the ice sweeping doesn't help at all. One curler agreed with Petta piece, rated a top sweeper. "You might just as we! throw your brooms he said. Manitoba remained In firs place, undefeated after four but the favored Prairie residents bad their troubles. They scored in bunches to de- feat Jack Tucker of Richmond, skip of the British Columbia en- ry, 11-7 in the fourth round after scoring three on the llth end of he third round in a 10-6 jiumph over the stubborn Nova Scotia entry skipped by Peter Hope of Dartmouth. a 4-1 record, white six teams are tied for third- Wisconsin, Minnesota, Alaska, Washington, New York- and Uli If there's anything worth believing to the new Derek monologue it's his attitude to- ward Team Canada and Bobby Hull. He says he re- grets that he couldn't play for Team Canada and ho blasts the NHL for its hand- ling of Hull. "It was a disgrace that they wouldn't let Bobby Hull play. After all, it was called Team Canada, not Team NHL. When they said they wouldn't let Hull play I told them I wouldn't play either. And that was a long time before I even thought about the Bla- zers. a guy who's given 15 years of his life to hockey and they deprive him of the biggest, single honor of all, to play for his country." Sorry Jim Taylor, but when he starts talking like that, it's hard to become a mem- ber of the Tired of Derek Sanderson Club!
