Local scout pack shines A group of boy scouts from the 14th Lethbridge McKillop Church travelled to Edmonton recently to take part in the seventh annual Cub and Scout KAMOTIK Jamboree Races. The local scout pack fared well in their first ever KAMOTIK races (dog sleds in lieu of chuckwagons) as they placed second in the event staged at the Edmonton Gardens. Team members included John Hays, Paul Leach, Robert Montgomery, Jim Rous, Rusty Hooper, Peter Watson, Blair Shewchuk, Doug Mentanko, Trevor Baird and Brian Leach.

The Labor Club Bees and Bantam "A" All-Stars will meet in the first game of the series at eight o'clock at Henderson The winners of the series will advance to the Mini Games to be staged in Pincher Creek Mar. 29-30. By LLOYD YAMAGISHI Herald Sports Writer The four co-favorites of the 1973-74 Alberta high school "A" girls' championship playoff finals showed they're not the kind of teams who Russian twosome the best MUNICH (CP) Ludmila Pakhomova and Alex Gorshkov won their fifth dance title in a row at the world figure skating championships Friday. The Rusian husband and wife team clearly out classed all opposition as they whirled and pirouetted to their unprecedented fifth crown Hilary Green and Glyn Watts of England were the silver medallists and another Russian couple. Natalya Linichuk and Gennadi Karponosov, were third. The second place finish was the best for an English couple since 1969 when Diana Towler and Bernard Ford were the champions. Louise and Barry Soper of West Vancouver, B.C., retained ninth place, the position they had held since the opening compulsory dance. They also finished ninth in the world in 1973 and 1972. ALSO AT STANDSTILL Barbara Berezowski of Toronto and David Porter and Port Berry, Ont, were 15th, the same position as they finished last year. The Pakhomova-Gorshkov team was incredible, carrying out series after series of intricate steps with impeccable timing. The almost full house crowd of about clapped and cheered throughout the near-perfect performance. On the first set of marks, given for the composition of the four-minute dance, the Russians received one perfect mark of surprisingly from the Russian judge and on the marks presentation they received seven sixes, a 5.9 and a 5.8. One other British couple, Janet Sawbridge and Peter Dalby, dropped to fifth from fourth as another Russian Team, Irina Moisseyeva and Andrei Mmenkov jumped to fourth from fifth FOR THE HUNTING ENTHUSIAST SUZUKI RV's 50 cc 90 cc -125 cc TIM Motorcycle that will you ovtf any terrain.

Solid performance brings victory Rams assured of berth By CLARKE HUNTER Herald Sports Writer The Lethbridge Collegiate Institute Rams advanced to a berth in the provincial high school "A" boys basketball championships by defeating the Cardston Cougars 5548 in Southern Alberta Zone action staged Friday night at the Civic Centre. In the other A division contest, the Magrath Zeniths kept their hopes alive by downing the Raymond Comets in a 41-38 squeaker. Meanwhile the Cardston Wildcats fought off a last- minute flurry by the Catholic Central Flyers and hung on for a 51-50 victory in a B division semi-final encounter. In the "A" championship game last night, the Rams used their pattern offense and board strength to dominate the first half action. They led by 13 points at times before the Cougars reorganized to close the gap at the half to 31- 23. Just as was the case in Thursday's victory over Raymond, the Cardston boys came out fired up in the second half and came back to within one point with five minutes remaining. But the effort fell short this time as the experience served them well in the late going. Jim Whitelaw's L.C.I. team looked often to Ross Blackmer and he came through with 23 big points. The Rams also got 13 from Ron Shemanchuk while Kelly Wilde chipped in with nine. The Cougars were paced by Jim Toone's 17 points while Dave Remington added 12. Meanwhile the Raymond Comets were eliminated from further competition after losing to the Magrath Zeniths in another heartbreaker. The Comets led 21-14 at the half and 33-24 at the three-quarter mark, mainly on the strength of a fine outside shooting performance by Tom Myndio. However, the Zeniths went to a man-to-man defense in the final frame and fought back to take the lead with three minutes remaining. The Comets had their chances but missed three free throws in the last 30 seconds. Tim Rollingston sank two charity tosses with three seconds left to knot the victory for the Zeniths. For the Raymond Comets, Myndio fired in 17 points while Jeff Hill hooped nine. Kevin Anderson led the way for the Zeniths with 14 while Rollingston added 10. In the B division contest last night, the outcome was not decided until the final seconds. The Cardston Wildcats led 51-45 with a minute to go, but the CCHS Flyers made a furious last ditch effort which brought Salesman of the Month We are pleased to an- nounce that 'Brian Franz' has won the Salesman of the Month award for Feb- ruary. We congratulate Brian for his fine efforts, and suggest that if you're look- ing for a new or used car, give Brian a call at 327-1591 Brian Franz FLEMING MOTORS LTD. Phone 327-1591 them to within one point with nine seconds remaining. However, the Wildcats managed to hold on and now advance to the B division championship tonight. The Wildcats were paced by Ralph West's 19 points while Warren MacEwan countered with 19 for the Flyers Following the L.C.I Cardston game last night, the league and tournament championship trophies were awarded along with five all- star trophies for the regular season. Co-captains Kelly Wilde and Ron Shemanchuk accepted both championship, trophies for the L.C.I. Rams. The all-star positions, which were voted upon by the league's coaches, went to Cardston's Jim Toone and Don Yuill, the Rams' Randy Stevens and Ron Shemanchuk, and to Kevin Anderson of Magrath. Honorable mention was given to Raymonnd's Tom Myndio and Jeff Hill, Ross Blackmer Dave Remington and Tim Rollingston Meanwhile, controversy rages over the location of the Saturdy night contests to determine southern Alberta's second "A" provincial representative and decide the B division championship. While tonight's action was originally scheduled for Winston Churchill High School, some of the league coaches have taken it upon themselves to decide that the games should be played in the Raymond Cultural Hall. The Herald received a telephone call from Cardston's Tim Tollestrup late last night in which it was indicated that three of the coaches had agreed that the site should be switched to Raymond. League president Jim Whitelaw was contacted and The Herald learned that the conflict has arisen due to the necessity of changing the Saturday games to Winston Churchill when it was learned that the original site (Civic Centre) had a prior booking This proposal was evidently set forth at a league meeting in Coaldale in mid-February and no objection was raised at that time. The Raymond, Magrath, and Cardston coaches have since conducted an informal draw and decided that Raymond should be the site However, Mr. Whitelaw stated last night that as far as he is concerned, the games are still scheduled for WCHS. If the teams still insist on playing in Raymond, a report will be filed with the Alberta Schools Athletic Association by Mr. Whitelaw, and the decision will be left in the hands of that organization as to southern Alberta's second provincial representative. Meanwhile, it was announced this morning that the games will be played in Raymond. The Cardston Wildcats will take on the Magrath Eagles at seven followed by the Cardston Cougars and Magrath Zeniths at eight. Hoop league conflicts of the type exhibited Friday night almost upstage the ball games themselves and detract from the spirit of high school athletics It will be a shame if a deserving team is suspended from provincial competition due to an arbitrary decision on the part of some coaches to change the site.

LaZerte 57 Stettler 37 The clubs battled neck-and- neck for the first eight minutes, but suddenly the Stettler Cubs fell apart. The Cubs, who led 14-12 after the opening quarter, managed to score only a single point in the second quarter and found themselves trailing 27-15 at the half. They came back somewhat in the third quarter and trailed 40-31, but the damage had already been done. Norma Slater led M. E. LaZerte with a 16-point outing while Sherry Stevenson chipped in 14 points. Barb Cassidy was a standout in a losing cause hooping 17 points. E. P. Scarlett 70 Medicine Hat 37 E. P. Scarlett Lancers jumped to a commanding 16-4 first quarter lead and never looked back. They extended their lead over the Gas City Co-eds in the third quarter leading 46-26 which more-or-less salted away a victory. Lori Chizik and Dawna Kortgaard led the Lancers with brilliant 22-point performances while Lorraine Sept replied for the Co-eds with 15. Western Canada 47 St. Francis 44 Western Canada Redmen held a slim 14-10 margin after the first quarter and increased it to 30-20 by the end of the second. St. Francis Xavier Rams came back to trail only 34-32 at the end of the third frame, but a number of costly ball losses eliminated them from the championship side of the tourney draw Darlene Holomis paced the Redmen with 15 points followed by Ruth Letts with 11. Yvonne Van Soest was outstanding in a losing cause as she notched 25 points LCI 32 Grande Prairie 27 The LCI Clipper Queens made a brilliant comeback to continue their bid for a sixth provincial title The locals trailed 12-6 after eight minutes of action, but battled back to take a 20-16 margin into the second half. It was the Grande Prairie Totems turn to come back in the third quarter and in doing so managed to cut the deficit to 24-22 The final was as exciting as any ball game could be as they went end-to-end in probably the closest game of the evening. Rookie guard Myrna Allert led the Clipper Queens with a 10-point outing while Les Lilja aided the cause with nine. Debbie Ophus paced the Totems with seven points while five other players chipped in with four each. HOOP-SHOTS M. E. LaZerte and E P.
