Lethbridge Herald (Newspaper) - March 18, 1971, Lethbridge, Alberta Thursday, March 18, 1971 - THE IETHBRIDCE HERALD - 9 Much too fust say most curlers Canadians not happy with ice at finals MEGEVE, France (CP) -Although they led the field moving into today's fifth round of the seven-draw World curling championship, Canada's curlers still were not happy with the tricky ice here. Don Duguid's Winnipeg rink took sole possession of first place Wednesday night with an easy 9-4 win against Pierre Boan of France. The victory left Duguid, defending World champion, with a perfect 4-0 won-lost mark. Today's fifth round was scheduled for 12.30 p.ni. �5:.i0 a.m. MST), with the sixth draw four hours later. Canada faced Sweden's Bjell Grengmark in the early draw. Scotland's Jimmy Sanderson met the United States foursome of Dale Dalziel from Edmore, N.D., Germany's Manfred Rae-derer took on Cesare Canepa of Switzerland, and Norway's Knut Bjaanas met Boan. Most rinks here have found the keen ice too fast. The Cana- dians and Americans claim it is faster than any they have played on at home. Duguid said the tricky ice makes it easy for a team to lose the title by dropping a playoff game, even if the rink goes through the regulation seven rounds undefeated. The schedule calls for the ANDY CAPP Detroit still on shaky ground Bergman back in lineup DETROIT (AP) - It's still not clear what happened on the Detroit Red Wings bench during the first period of Tuesday night's National Hockey League game between the Wings and the high flying Boston Bruins. But whatever it was, it almost certainly will contribute further to the crumbling morale of what may already be the unhappiest team in professional hockey. Near the end of the period, Coach Doug Barkley told veteran defenceman Gary Bergman to dress and go home. The Wings, trailing 2-0 at the time of the incident, went on to lose the game 11-4. Barkley restored Bergman to the roster Wednesday, explaining: "We had a personal confrontation and we have ironed it out. He's back with the team and he has been fined. The matter will be forgotten." Bergman, who used to share a house with Barkley when Barkley played with the Wings, was unavailable for comment. Red Wings General Manager Ned Harkness also could not be reached. The Bergman incident was the latest of a series which have shaken the Wings since the season began. Detroit opened the year under Harkness, newly arrived from Cornell University.

OTTAWA (CP) - British Columbia Lions have agreed to consider trading their star running back Jim Young to Ottawa Rough Riders in return for retired quarterback Russ Jackson. Ottawa general manager Frank Clair said today he has been officially informed the Lions are willing to talk about the deal but he added that other details have yet to be worked out. This is considered a big break in negotiations that have been deadlocked for several months. "Negotiations are far from over," said Clair, "there are other players involved, but I can't name them." The Lions had previously maintained they would not trade Young, and Ottawa had been equally insistent they would make no deaL for Jackson unless Young was included. Leading jockeys hospitalized NEW YORK (AP) - Johnny Rotz and Bobby Ussery, two of the nation's leading jockeys, were hospitalized and Regal Dancer, a 7-year-old gelding, destroyed after a spill in the fourth race at Aqueduct Wednesday. tics in managing a professional team. As the Wings staggered closer to the cellar of the NHL Eastern Division, the unhappiness simmering below the surface exploded in January when veteran General Manager Sid Abel abruptly resigned. Shortly thereafter, Harkness was named general manager and Barkley, a former Wing whose career was terminated at his prime by ameye injury, was promoted from the coach's job at Detroit's Fort Worth, Tex., farm club to run the Red Wings. The change in personnel at the top was followed by a flurry of trading, including deals which sent stars Frank Mahov-lich to Montreal and Garry Unger to St. Louis. Including Bergman, there are only six members of last season's playoff team still on the squad, with forwards Gordie Howe and Alex Delvecchio considered "untouchables." The Wings' play improved for a while under Barkley, but lately there have been increasing reports of dissatisfaction with the new coach. After Detroit lost to Vancouver 5-3 on Feb. 12, Barkley announced he was fining 11 players $100 each for inept playing. FINES PROHIBITED He later learned the standard NHL player contract prohibits fines for ineptitude, but promised: "There are other ways to get the money off them . . . I'll find it." After the Wings lost to Vancouver 7-3 last Thursday, Barkley repeated his promise to find a way to enforce fines. Detroit currently is in sixth place in the NHL East, behind the expansion Buffalo Sabres and only five points ahead of last-place Vancouver. The Wings have won only 20 games this season, while losing 38 and tying 10. Most of their remaining games are against the powerful, "old" NHL clubs such .as Montreal, Chicago and Toronto. Bergman is one of only four healthy defencemen-the others being Arnie Brown, Serge La-jeuniesse and Jim Neikamp. Russians favored to win BERN, Switzerland (AP) - The Soviet Union is favored to retain its world ice hockey championship starting Friday-one that officials fear may be. marred by demonstrations against the Soviets. The six teams shooting for the crown play one set of games in Bern Friday through March 26 with the return games scheduled for Geneva March 27-April 3. Precautions have been taken to check anti-Soviet demonstrations by Czech exiles, particularly in Bern. Prague officials advised the Swiss to avoid selling block ticket bookings to Czechs living abroad. Sporting events between the Czechs and Soviets have been marred several times by demonstrations ever since .the 1968 invasion of Czechoslovakia. ' The1 Soviet Union has won the world championship and Olympic titles eight straight times and experts consider that only the Czechs have a chance stopping the defending champions. "The Czechs, Soviets, Swedes, Germans and Finns had better forget any ideas that we are going to be powder puff opponents like we were two years ago," says United States coach Murray Williamson. The Americans open against the Czechs Friday while the Soviet Union meets West Germany.  "We're going to play good, hard hockey," Williams said "They'll all know they've been in a match after playing against us." first four finishers to meet in playoffs Friday night! Winners of those two games hook up in the final 24 hours later. Grouped behind Canada in the standings were Scotland with three wins and a loss while the U.S., Sweden and France had 2-2 marks. Norway, Germany and Switzerland have each one win and three losses. Rod Hunter, third on the Winnipeg rink, agreed with his skip's assessment of the ice. "The ice is still too tricky." Hunter said. "You can bury your rocks, but not exactly where you want to. "One stroke of the broom can make a difference of up to two feet on this ice. You won't play for inches on it." HAD BAD START Duguid, forced into an extra end to defeat Norway in the aft ernoon round  7-6, thought he was off to the same kind of start against Boan. The French skip moved into a 2-0 lead after the first end causing Duguid to mutter: "1 don't like the trend" and later, "Take me out of here." However, when his front end caught fire, the Winnipeg crew picked up two in the third, a pair in the fifth, a single in the eventh and stole two in the eighth and one in the ninth. A 12th-end single rounded out the scoring. In other fourth-round games, Scotland defeated Norway 8-4, the U.S*. clobbered Germany 14-4 in a game called off after 1� ends, and it took Sweden an extra end to turn back Switzerland 6-5. Minor hockey After three periods of play in a Pee Wee contest last night between the Flyers and the Vikings a winner couldn't be decided and the game ended 1-1. Jeffrey Takeyasu gave the Vikings 1-0 first period lead but B. Brown tied the encounter in the final stanza. In Bantam "B" action Sheldon Kelly had the puck flying once again and rammed in three goals to lead the Rangers to a 7-2 romping over the Mon-archs. After a scoreless first period the Rangers came up with three markers which were all tallied by Kelly. ' Bruce Twa and Pat Middle-ton replied for the Monarchs in the same period but couldn't click in the third. Other Ranger markers came off the sticks of Bruce Cave, Bill Wilson, Randy Layden and Greg Babino. Darrel Yack picked up his first shutout of the season as he led the Marlands to a 4-0 victory over the Maroons. Lome Osmond slapped in two markers for the Marlands while Paul Byrne and Leroy Pavan chipped in with singletons. In a Bantam B game Tuesday, the Cougars trimmed the Eagles 7-2. Ron Gretzinger scored twice for the winners with singletons going to Dave Sazalashi, Richard Shardlow, John Korthuis, James Rapuano and Steve Campbell with John Wasileski and Barry Huber banging in the Eagle goals. Two rinks move into curling lead CHARLOTTETOWN (CP) -British Columbia and New Brunswick each picked up two wins here Wednesday to move into the lead of national legion curling championship with 5-1 win-loss records. Saskatchewan and O n t a r i o were tied in second place with 4-2 records, followed by Alberta and Prince Edward Island with 3-3 marks and Nova Scotia, Manitoba and Quebec with 2-4. Newfoundland was winless after six games. Louis Dugre of Chatham, N.B., moved his rink into the first place tie when he edged the Saskatchewan rink skipped by Jim Ferguson of Regina 8-7 in the sixth round. Dugre was behind 7-6 going into the 12th end, but with his last rock he took out a Saskatchewan stone and scored two for the win. In the fifth round, Dugre scored twice in the 11th and 12th rounds to defeat Frank Hoar of Truro, N.S., 9-7. The British Columbia rink skipped by Gordon Stewart of Duncan easily defeated Gord Hikler of Killam, Alta., 8-5 in the fifth round and Bill Beer of Charlottetown 10-6 in the sixth.

Ehinan paces victory Oakland snaps streak By THE CANADIAN PRESS Cud worth, Sask., hasn't rated much interest nationally in a long time-if ever. But two of that prairie community's native sons nave been keeping it prominent in recent months, particularly around the National, Hockey League centres. Orland Kurtenbach has been most noticeable as the hard-nosed centre and captain of Vancouver Canucks. But Gerry Ehman has been getting his licks in as one of the steadier workhorses for the lowly California Golden Seals. The 38-year-old right winger, considered washed up by most NHL clubs before expansion, fired two goals Wednesday night as the Seals delivered Pittsburgh Penguins' playoff hopes a blow with a 5-2 win at Oakland. The goals were Nos. 14 and 15 for the former Flin Flon, Man., junior who never quite caught on until the Seals picked him up HENDERSON LAKE GOLF CLUB CLUB STAG MEMBERS and GUESTS FRIDAY, MARCH 19th 7 p.m. to 2 a.m. lAr Smogasbord ^ Golf Films, etc. PHONE 327-3652 FOR YOUR RESERVATIONS from Toronto Maple Leafs in a trade on Oct. 3,1967. Ehman has been steady but unspectacular in his four seasons with California. The victory Wednesday snapped a nine-game winless streak for the Seals and kept the Penguins five points behind Philadelphia Flyers in their fight for the fourth and last playoff spot. The Penguins' scored first on Ron Schock s 13th of the season at 1:32 of the first period. But Seals' goals by Tony Feather-stone and Gary Crcteau 15 seconds apart in the second period moved them ahead to stay. Ehman notched his first 16 seconds into the final period for the winner, Gary Jarrett fired the insurance marker at 12:20 and Ehman completed the California scoring with less than two minutes to go.
