Stamps sign John Helton CALGARY fCP) Calgary Slampeders of the Western football Conference today an- nounced the signing of defen- sive tackle John Helton. Helton has been with the Stampeders since He was selected lo the VfFC all-star team in his rookie season as a defensive end and has been a league all-star every season since then as a defensive tackle. He was selected to the all- Canadian all-star unit in 1971 and 1972 and last year was named the Canadian Football League's outstanding lineman. encd Wednesday but complaints about the condition of the rocks used in the Canadian curling championships increased. Despite the complaints, some excellent clutch shotmaking and a series of unexpected misses kept more than curling fans in a state or frenzy tliroughout the sixth round, sec- ond of the day. In the final draw, Harvey Ma- zinke of Regina, skip of the Sas- katchewan entry in Ihe 11-team round-robin competition, set a record of sorts. He went into a move than regu- lation for the second time in the day. Only twice previously in the 44-year history of the champion- ship have games gone into the 14th frame. Mazinke was guilty both times by rolling out after killing opposition stones in the first ex- tra frame. But the indiscretions were wiped out in the final end in each case. BEAT MANITOBA He defeated (he previously- unbeaten Manitoba rink skipped by Danny Fink of Winnipeg 7-5, than posted a victory over the hapless Alberta rink di- rected by Mel Watchorn of Fairview. The result left Saskatchewan alone in first place, the only rink with one loss. Five others have two losses each with five draws remaining and skips from at least lliree rinks pre- dicted freely after Wednesday's play that a playoff is inevitable. One ol' those making pre- dictions was the talented boss of the Nova Scotia outfit, Peter Hope of Dartmouth. Hope said he believes his rink is as good as any in the com- petition, despite the unimpres- sive reputation of Maritime en- I tries. He proved it, at least par- tially, in the fifth round before fans, when he cracked a whopping five-ender to post a 13-6 victory over Jim Ward and his Newfoundland m ates from Labrador City. Then, in the evening round, Nova Scotia opened a big lead over the Dave Moon rink of Montreal, representing Quebec. Hope preserved the victory by throwing a soft-weight takeout with his last stone while looking four rival counters. Nova Scotia won 11-7. EVERYBODY SUFFERS "Oh, that said Hope, in his fourth national champion- ships. "Or maybe it's the it is, it's tough on everybody." Despite the comments, cur- ling in the sixth round was! much more consistent than in earlier sessions.1 Matt Baldwin, one of 19 men named Wednesday as original members of the Canadian Cur- ling Hal! of Fame, blamed the rocks. He said they haven't been consistent since they were introduced in Quebec City in 1971, where, incidentally, Bald- win went 5-5 and finished well back of the leaders, The Watcborn quartet contin- ued to have difficulty, dropping a pair of tight decisions. The first loss of the day occurred wh en J ack Tucker of Rich- mond, skip of the British Co- lumbia rmk, connected for three on the final end of a 10-3 victory. Mel has lost all confidence h L s ability to find draw said Baldwin, joining many observers in feeling sorry for the friendly and capable Peace River shotmaker. Manitoba struggled through a 14-7 loss to Cbarlottetown's Bob Dillon, skip of the Prince Ed- ward Island entry, in the sixth round after its loss to Mazinke. In other sixth-round games, British Columbia downed New- foundland 12-6, and Don Harry of Sudbury led Northern On- tario in a stunning 9-8 victory over Ontario, the third lime in three years Northern Ontario has beaten its arch-rivals in the national final. Ontario skip Paul Savage of Scarborough was heavy with a draw against two on iiie 12th end and Harry buried shot rock in the 13th where it couldn't be found to escape with the vic- tory. Savage surpri sed the Lou Dugre foursome of Chatham, N.B., with a 9-5 triumph in the fifth round. In the other game, Quebec bounced Northern On- tario 15-5. Meanwhile in C o 1 o r a do Sprin gs defend ing ch ampion end to defeat a Washington rink 84 and preserve his un- defeated string. In a game tonight, North Da- kota meets highly-rated Massa- chussets. Winner of the tourna- ment will represent the United States in the world champion- ships in Regina March 19 to 24. SULLY SAYS -By Pat Sullivan rpHAT'S all the thanks a guy gets. You spend all fall and win- ter telling everyone how good the Lelhbridge Community Kodiaks are and what a fine group of young men they are. Then what happens? They the Alberta College Ath- letic Conference basketball ti- tle and everyone within reach gets a dunking. And not through a hoop, but a show- er. I have always gotten along with athletic, director Ben Brooks and Gordon Colledge that I have ever been invited to their houses for supper but we have had what I thought to be a friend- ly relationship. Up until now. Last Saturday evening I ex- plained that I would be cov- ering the K o d i a k Mount Royal basketball final hut that I had company and wmi'd like to get away right after the game. Tills seemed like a reason- able request. Yet Brooks and Colledge both tried to talk me into, as they put it, stick around after Ihe game. That was a nice gesture I thought. Possibly there is a celebration after the game and I've been invited. How- ever, I did have other com- mitments and so I said no, politely. Someone up above must like me. I left the Commu- nity College as arranged, right after the game ended. It was a good thing I did. Yes sir, those likeable Ko- diaks had me labelled for a quick shower. Now I'm not adverse to showers, but with my clothes on? Coach Tom Karren made it to Ihe water and so did Col- ledge. I managed to escape my watery thank you. ANDY CAPP MV TROUBLE i s I CAN'T SAV NO. lUETTHEBOVS DOANYTHIN1. THEV WANT- FlU. UP 'EH GLASS, MARV TAKE IETTHEM 5TAV UP TO WATCH Twg WESTERN AN1 COULbN'TGETTHEVi UP POft THIS MORNIN1' Now that I think of it, I should have known something was up when I was walking past the Kodiaks' bench as the game ended. Gary Williams, whom I know well enough to say hello to, gave me that "we have something in s t o r c lor you" look. And after all the nice things I said about him. That's gratitude. Do a bunch of guys a favor and what happens? f had even given some thought lo possibly accom- panying the Kodiaks on their trip to Vancouver this week- end for the 4-Wcst champion- ships. But not now. I could c-.tch' my death of cold on the damp west coast standing around in all those wet cloth- es. What ever happened to the One of. the keys to the Ko- success has the ability lo adjust to almost any given situation. The best example ot that came in the ACAC final Saturday night. Mount Royal, in an effort to shake the Kodiaks up, went to a stall. Ball control was the name of the game and de- spile the facl it looked as though it could force the Ko- diaks to lose their collecied cool, it only had short effect on them. Another reason I think the Kodiaks will repeat as west champs is the experience good old champagne drink- ing, style celebration? All kidding aside though, tlie Kcdiaks set out today for Vancouver and hope to successfully defend their western Canada college championship. Kodiaks won it all last year and coach Karren is looking to duplicate 1972's triumph. I for one think the Kodiaks can do it. I have watched them all year and if they play the kind of basketball they are capable of, they should earn a berth in the Canadian championships March 1G and 17, in Toronto. Kodiaks romped through the ACAC without a setback in 14 league games as well as two playoff encounters. They are healthy heading west and if Karren is quietly confident, who can blame Win? they gain each year playing American colleges. The an- nual road trip south has proven to be a big factor in the Kodiak's showing. I'm not going west with the Kodiaks, instead I am go- in? to test the slopes at West Castle. Being naturally athletically inclined. I [ind no reason why I shouldn't head the pack at Ihe Molstar races. H is a news media event sponsored by Molson's it all depends on how much product I get into me as to how fast I head downward on the slopes.
