Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - March 8, 1974, Lethbridge, Alberta Friday, March I, 1974 THE LETHMIDOE HERALD 11 Alberta foursome in good shape Gervais 7-1 heading into stretch LONDON, Ont. (CP) The 45th Canadian men's curling championship will probably go down to the wire Saturday and nobody's discounting the possibility of an. evening playoff. AMDYCAPP With Alberta topping the standings following Thursday night's eighth draw, Hec Ger- vais' 7-1 record puts him in the favored role despite a last- draw matchup with Quebec, currently tied for second place with Saskatchewan. But Quebec's Jim Ursel and his Montreal rink aren't looking beyond this afternoon's game. "Newfoundland could be the big stumbling block for I'VE CHANGED MY IGNORE THAT NOTE-IT WAS WRITTEN IN ANGER BEAST.' I THE FIRST LETTER Who's that climbing? THE CANADIAN PRESS For a team that was in last place in the West on Dec. 1 and reeling from a ten-game losing slump, Los Angeles Kings have suddenly become Miners win city title Miners' Library captured the 1973-74 City Recreation Hockey League championship title by scoring a 5-3 victory over Purity Bottling Wednesday night. The Miners, who. also won the pennant title this season, had no problems what-so ever in disposing the Bottlers in the best of five final series as they won the playoffs in three straight games. Cam Hogden paced the Miners to the championship title with a two-goal performance while Brian Murkin. Larry Boulton and Bob Bartlett chipped in with singles. Dennis Oberg, Dan Paskuski and Dave Ball replied for the Bottlers, who trailed 3-0 after the first period and 5-2 by the end of the second. one of the hottest teams in the National Hockey League. Under coach Bob Pulford, a 16-year veteran of the league, the Kings have vaulted into third place in their division, one point ahead of Atlanta Flames. In December, the. Kings took corrective action by making the first of a series of trades that had benefited the team considerably: "We aren't doing anything different now and I haven't changed my Pulford said Thursday after Los Ange- les upset Chicago Black Hawks 3-2. "The breaks are coming our way and when we play well, we'll keep our opponents' under 30 shots a game." The Kings limited the sec- ond-place Black Hawks to a mere 18 shots on Rogie Vachon Thursday, while Tony Esposito in the Chicago nets was called upon to block 29 drives. In other games Thursday, Toronto Maple Leafs rallied twice to gain a 2-2 tie with Pittsburgh Penguins and Philadelphia Flyers whipped Detroit Red Wings 6-1. Bob Berry scored his 18th and 19th goals of the season, his second one the game winner, to pace Kings to their fourth consecutive victory. It was the first win this sea- SHOOTERS SCOREBOARD PLAINSMAN SPORTS Shooters in Southern Alberta will be pleased to know that the highly popular Southern Alberta Games concept is to be broadened to an Alberta wide event The Alberta Summer Games will be held in Calgary from August 21 to August 25th. Of course shooting should be represented as the sport with the greatest participation in Southern and rural Alberta, and in the Summer Games it will be. through four different events. There will be a smallbore .22 event a centre fire event for hunting rifles, a pistol shoot and a pellet rifle competition. The proposed rules governing the competition are most in- teresting. For example the centre fire event is restricted to hunting rifles, with no slings. The course of fire involves 10 shots at a con- ventional target five shots at the silhouette of a rabbit from the off- hand position, and five shots at a running deer. The 32 event is limited to rifles of pounds and metallic sights, and will be fired from standing, kneeling, and prone positions. In line with Games concept of amateur competition anyone who has competed in the National or International matches during the past two season will not be eligible. The pistol competition will be for any .22 calibre pistol. 25 yards. 3 targets slow fire, timed fire, and rapid fire. the pellet rifle competition will be at a distance of ten metres, with 30 shots prone. 10 shots kneeling, and 10 shots standing. The Province has been divided into 8 zones. Appropriately enough the Southern Zone encompassing Municipal Districts 6. 9. 14. and 26 is named Zone 1. and the identifying colour will be yellow. The trials must be completed and the team selected by August 7th. Competitors will be quartered at Currie Barracks at Sarcee Military camp in Southwest Calgary. One might forecast that from the resounding success of the Southern Alberta Games that the Provincial counterpart will also be enthusiastically accepted. mm Ill WESTERN CANADA'S LEADING SUPPLIER OF QUALITY FIREARMS, TARGET EQUIPMENT.

While some might scoff at Fred Wight's St. John's, Nfld., rink becoming a "stumbling block" for Ursel's aspirations when they meet today at 2 p.m. EST, Alberta's Gervais is a believer. The friendly giant from St. Albert was hard-pressed in pushing his record to 7-1 while posting a 7-5 victory over Wight Thursday night and only after the rinks had gone to skip rocks in the last end. In other eighth-round games, Larry McGrath of Kindersley, Sask., posted his fifth straight win, 9-5, over Don Barr of Glenboro, Man.; Jim Armstrong of Richmond, B.C., edged Bob Dillon's Prince Edward Island four from Charlottetownj 7-6; and Chucker Ross of Sudbury, rep- resenting Northern Ontario, Aaron, Heard in lead MIAMI (AP) Tommy Aaron and Jerry Heard matched seven under par 65s to share the first-round lead in the Doral Eastern Open golf tournament Thursday. Aaron and Heard, winner of last week's Citrus Open, shared a one-stroke advantage over Buddy Allin, who fashioned a 66 on the yard Blue Monster course at the Doral Country Club. A group of five players followed at 67 as golf's tourists took advantage of the near-perfect playing conditions for exceptionally scoring. The group at five under par included defending champion Lee Trevino, Orville Moody, Bunky Henry and Australian veterans Bruce Crampton and Bruce Devlin. Tom Weiskopf and 61-year- old Sam Snead were in a large group at 69 while prettourney favorite Jack Nicklaiis .could do no better than a 71, six strokes off the pace. Aaron, troubled by an ailing back since his Masters' victory at Augusta, Ga. last spring, birdied all of the par- five holes and commented, "it seems to be coming back.'" Ski reports look good The Westcastle Ski Resort area has received 18 inches of new snow during the past week leaving their slopes in excellent condition for weekend skiers. As of Thursday. Westcastle's slopes have a 64- inch base at the lodge level and a 116-inch base at the base top. The temperature is 20 degrees above zero and sunny. Meanwhile Fernie Snow Valley should have good powder conditions for the weekend. It was still snowing in the Snow Valley area Thursday and at last report their slopes were 67 inches at the base bottom and 19 feet at the base top. The temperature reading was holding at 17 degrees above zero. DRESSY SUP-OK in Himalayan Buffalo iilso available in Hand waxed Black.

I downed John Clark of Fred- ericton, N.B., 7-4. Ontario's representative, Paul Savage of Toronto, had the evening bye. Wight started to make his presence known in the after- noon draw, stopping Ontario 11-10 in an extra end after five consecutive losses. Other scores were: New Brunswick 8, P.E.I. 7; Quebec 9, Manitoba 8; Alberta 7, Nova Scotia 5 and Saskatchewan 11, B.C. 6. In addition to the Quebec- Newfoundland game this afternoon, Northern Ontario played B.C., Saskatchewan met Nova Scotia, Ontario went against Alberta, Manitoba faced P.E.I, and New Brunswick drew the bye. Alberta finally gets a rest in the evening draw, starting at when the two key games should be Ontario against Que- bec and Saskatchewan against Newfoundland. -Other games are Nova Scotia-P.E.I., Manitoba Northern Ontario and New Brunswick-British Columbia. Gervais agreed with Ursel's preparations for the St. John's rink. "I missed a shot in the sec- ond that gave them two and I missed on the said the 1961 Canadian and world champion who is in the Canadian championship for the fourth time. I missed only two shots all the game and we beat them 7-5. That has to say something for them." ALERT FOR GAME Gervais had earlier men- tioned that at his age he's find- ing it tough to get mentally aroused for every game. He said such wasn't the case against Newfoundland. "At this stage (of the cham- pionship) we don't have any trouble getting worked up for the games. Every one counts. We certainly didn't want a let- down here. "But these guys (the weaker rinks) are up for us. "We've got to watch them." Wight, whose rink seemed to have trouble reading arena ice since none of them had played on a similar surface before, admitted his team- mates and he were having their problems. "Curling is a team game and whenever one of the members isn't shooting well the others suffer. Everybody's got to hit and one or the other member of our rink was letting down at one time or another. "We're not nearly as bad as our 0-5 record and I think we proved that today." CONFIDENCE RESTORED Ursel, whose rink had its problems losing both Wednesday, said the back-to- back wins Thursday "really helps our confidence." "That particular game (11-4 over Nova Scotia) is as well as we've curled here this week. We're going to get better." Earlier in the day, McGrath said his rink's confidence has been restored with their win string stretched to five games. Brilliant free skater Toller Cranston of Toronto had to settle for a bronze medal at the world.figure skating championships Thursday. His excellent performance in free skating brought him from ninth to third. Cranston a bronze winner MUNICH (CP) Jan Hoff- mann of East Germany won the men's world figure skating championship Thursday night, but it was a tight fit. Hoffmann, favored because of his brilliance in school figures, had to come up with a near flawless free skating performance for the win and hold off challenges from silver medallist Sergei Volkov of Russia and Toller Cranston of Toronto. He finished with 231.44 points with Volkov at 227.94 and Cranston at 227.86. Hoffmann was technically brilliant in his five-minute free skating program, landing a triple lute, only the fourth in world figure skating championship history, and two other triple jumps. However, his program lacked color or showmanship. And while his marks weren't as good as Cranston's they were sufficient to hold the lead he had built in the figures. Volkov almost lost his second place to he'd built a sufficient lead in figures to manage a mediocre free-skating performance. Cranston then gave one of the most brilliant free-skating displays ever seen at a world championship and moved into the bronze medal position from fourth. He also earned a gold medal from free skating. He was first in the com- pulsory free skating Wednesday and first again Thursday, solidifying his position as a great free skater. Ron Shaver of Cambridge, Ont., despite two falls in his fi- nal free skating program, won a silver medal for free skating by placing second in the short program and third in the five- minute program. He was fifth over-all. Hoffmann won the bronze medal for was second to Cranston Thursday and fifth in the short program. Fourth place over-all went to Vladimir Kovalev of Russia. He was third in school figures, fourth in the short program and fourth in the free skating. Cranston, a 24-year-old artist, had been virtually eliminated from medal contention by the experts after finishing eighth in figures. He didn't expect a medal, but said at the time, "the best has yet to come." Going to Calgary WINTER RATES STETSON MOTEL 10002 MKtood TrailS.
