Lethbridge Herald (Newspaper) - March 9, 1973, Lethbridge, Alberta Practise sessions have plenty of action, not so in competition Changes heeded to make judo appealing MONTREAL (Special)-It's all very well to sell refrigerators to Eskimos. But Charles Palmer, 43, has been trying to get the Japanese to change their minds about Judo. Mr. Palmer, an English* man, is president of the In-ternationat Judo Federation. He is a black belt and has been interested in Judo since he was 15. Here to consult with organ* izers of the 1976 Olympics, he said much of his time has been spent recently trying to convince Japanese judokas that changes are needed in competition rules to make the sport more appealing to spectator*. "Judo can be just as interesting to watch as diving or gymnastics," he said. "Strangers who drop in on judo practice sessions often end- up staying to look on for a couple of hours. ''But in competition we have a sudden-death rule. Your opponent scores one point and you lose. A spectator sees two people standing on a mat, not doing anything very much. Then there is a flash or movement and it's all over. "You get.into a 'not lose* syndrome where both sides are afraid to make an opening." When Mr. Palmer tried-to tell Japanese judo experts that their sport was not very interesting to watch, he said "they weren't very happy in the beginning." He interpreted their reaction as a reflection of the Japanese way of life. "Japanese society is very structured," he said. "There is an absolute unquestioning of authority in some areas." The reaction would probably be like that of American baseball officials if a Japanese suggested ways in which their sport could be improved.

The average stood at only .400 after the Hawks were beaten 4-1 by the Kings at Los Angeles Thursday night.

The Kings, meanwhile, continued to threaten St. Louis for fourth place in the West, moving to within two points of the Blues. In the only other game Thursday, Toronto Maple Leafs beat New York Islanders 4-1. Chicago, with one win, two ties and two losses in their five road games, had not seen action since they were shut out in Boston Sunday.

I 4 (-10 By THE ASSOCIATED PRESS General manager Stu Hoi-comb is getting a red'neck over some Chicago White Sox who are holding out for more green. Holcomb, who placed holdouts Jay Johnstone and' Ed Spiezio on waivers Wednesday, threatened Thursday to fine the other three balky Sox-pitcher Stan Bahnsen, infielder Mike Andrews and outfielder Rick Reichardt. "I don't know of any rule that says I can't fine them if the notion hits me," Holcomb said, "and believe me," it's coming on." . Andrews and Reichardt are balking at pay cuts which would drop them below $50,000. Bahnsen, a 21-game winner in 1972, has been offered a reported $60,000-65,000 but is seeking more. However, several other salary wars carte to an end. Minnesota slugger Harmon Killebrew accepted a reported $5,000 pay slash to $110,000 but Calvin Griffith, president of the Twins, said Killebrew could in crease his earnings with "contingency" clauses. DEPENDS ON FANS The contingencies reportedly include a rebound in attendance to more than 1.1 million and a certain number of appearances by the 36-year-old Killebrew, who ranks fourth on baseball's all-time home run list with 541 The Twins drew only 797,101 spectators last season and Killebrew played in 139 games despite a painful foot injury which necessitated post-season surgery. New York Yankees got outfielder Roy White's signature for an estimated $70,000 and relief ace Mike Marshall received a substantial increase from Montreal Expos after a season in which he won 14 games and posted a 1.78 eamed-run average. Elsewhere, Kansas City Royals signed outfielder Amos Otis and pitcher Tom Burgmeier while catcher Paul Casanova came to terms with Atlanta Braves. In exhibition action, New York Mets edged Detroit Tigers 4-3 on Don Harm's 10th-inning single; Boston Red Sox jumped on rookie Mike Pazik for six runs, including Carlton Fisk's two-run homer and trounced New York Yankees 7-2 and Pittsburgh Pirates rallied for two runs in the bottom of the ninth to beat Minnesota 7-6 after the Twins scored four times in the top of the frame.

Set for Room 1 in the Civic Centre the meeting will serve to set down the format for the coming year. The association is still accepting bids from out of town teams interested in playing. Sunday, however, will be the last chance for entry. The association already has teams from Taber and another from OaroVton to join with local teams. started to come around to Mr. Palmer's way of thinking. ~ Penalties have been introduced in competition rules for what Mr. Palmer describes as "non - combativity" and a person can * now be docked half a point for not showing the proper attitude. "There was another old trick," he said. "A man would be working himself up for an attack when his opponent would step out of the mat area. Everything would be stopped until both were back on the mat and the attack would have fizzled out." The ring on the floor around the mat has now been widened "so that nobody has the excuse of not seeing it," and penalties have been introduced for leaving the mat area. Mr. Palmer said he was satisfied with arrangements made by Games organizers for his sport to date. "Without in any way dene-grating the efforts of my friends in Munich," he said, "I can say that I am delighted to have been invited here so early. LATE START "We became involved in Munich less than two years before' the Games started and six months before the opening there were still problems. "But here the choice of our stadium has been practically resolved. "In Munich we wandered around from one place to another to the point where they were calling us the judo gypsies." He said arrangements for judo performances in the velodrome, which is yet to be built here, were practically settled. They must, however, be confirmed by his association. With a possibility of up to 500 contestants from 50 or 60 countries, a fairly considerable space will be needed for judo teams to practice. Mr. Palme*1 has come a long way for a high school dropout. He speaks English, French, German and Japanese, picking them up on his own, because he was "never very good at languages in school." He was a drummer in a dance band after he left school, worked for a while in a warehouse to keep himself in shape, and learned his judo before he joined the British army. In the army he was a military policeman and a judo instructor. When his national service ended, his ability at judo had grown to the point "where there just wasn't anybody in England who could beat me." Racquetball event ready to go at Y Molson's Brewery and the Lethbridge YMCA announced today they will co-sponsor the 1973 Alberta Open racquetball championships March 15-18.

Besides competing he will also conduct instructional clinics throughout the tourney. Top-ranked Steve Keeley, also of San Diego, will accompany Dr. Muehleisen. Canadian championship Wes Hadikiu will heed a strong contingent of Canadian players in the event. "This is by far the largest and most skillful racquetball tournament ever played in southern Alberta to date," said Logan Tait, director of the event.
