Lethbridge Herald (Newspaper) - March 19, 1971, Lethbridge, Alberta STUDY OF CHAMPIONS-Pierre Boon, left, skip of the French curling team and Jamee Sanderson, Scottish skip, express intense concentration during matches at the World not over yet" says skip championships in Megeve, France, Thursday. Canada leads the tourney going into the fourth day of competition today. Everyone but Duguid enthralled MEGEVE, France (CP) - Everybody appeared enthralled with the 6-0 record Canada carried into today's final round of regulation play in the world curling championship. Everyone but the man most concerned, skip Don Duguid of Winnipeg. Despite an easy 8-4 win against Germany's Manfred Baederer in Thursday night's [ sixth round, Duguid refused to concede that his second-consecutive world title was in the bag. "It's not over yet," Duguid Bench will be alright Sparky breathing easier By THE ASSOCIATED PRESS Manager Sparky Anderson of Cincinnati Reds is breathing easier today. Johnny Bench, his star catcher and the most valuable player in the National League last season, wont miss the opening game of the 1971 major league baseball season after all. Bench, who walloped 45 homers and drove in 148 runs in leading the Reds to the 1970 NL pennant, suffered a three-inch gash in his right shin in an exhibition game against Boston Red Sox Thursday. Ten stitches were needed to close the gash and It was feared Bench would miss Cincinnati's opening game against Atlanta Braves April 5. "It's not cut in a spot which would hinder his movement," Anderson said. "I guess it will take about three days to get the soreness out and then he'll be all right." The accident happened after Bench had doubled in the seventh inning of the game in which the Reds beat the Red Sox 7-5. He stole third, but while slid- TAPE SALE Regular f" ftf" $7.95 0.99 MUSICLAND Cor. 13rh St. and 3rd Ave. S. ing into the bag his leg went under the bag and he was cut by the spike that normally holds the bag on the foul line. Ernie Banks of Chicago Cubs was injured in another accident. He was struck over the left eye by a grounder during infield practice before t he Cubs-Oakland game won by the Cubs 9-8 in 10 innings. Still hope for a new attitude VIENNA (AP) - Miroslav Subrt, Czechoslovak vice-chairman of the International Ice Hockey Federation, expressed the belief today that the new International Olympic Committee to be elected in 1972 will take a more realistic attitude to a number of problems such as the controversy on Olympic eligibility. Subrt, in an article in the Czechoslovak sports weekly Gol, said he understood from press reports that not all IOC members shared IOC president Avery Brundages's interpretation of Olympic eligibility. Brundage is reported planning to resign after the 1972 Olympics. Twelve stitches were needed to close a cut under Banks' eye. There was no indication how long Banks out.

But as a man in the news, Joe may be remembered along with Mark Twain. Legend has it that Twain, the great American writer, replied to reports that he had died with this now famous line: "The reports of my death have been greatly exaggerated." Frazier, who was admitted to St. Luke's Hospital Tuesday after complaining he felt tired, might have echoed Twain's remark. As soon as it was learned that Joe was bedridden, rumors circulated that he was dead. Newspapers and wire SULLY SAYS -By Pat Sullivan said. "Anyone can win in this setup." The Winnipeg skip was referring to the playoff system in use here, whereby the first four finishers in regulation play move into the playoffs tonight. Under the system, the first team meets the fourth, and the second-place finisher plays the third. The two winners meet in the final round Saturday night. Duguid could repeat his 7-0 record, of last year, but lose the title by dropping his semi-final or final.round to an opponent that had a less-impressive record in the regular seven rounds. But no one here is betting this will happen. Most figure Duguid Will repeat last year's performance, when he drew a bye in the semi-final, when only three teams were eligible for the playoffs, and bombed Scotland 114 for the title. : "But one bad game and you're out," was Duguid's reply to well-wishers, following Thursday night's win. Today's seventh round, scheduled for 2:30 p.m. (6:30 a.m. MST) saw Duguid face his closest competitor this year, Scotland's Jimmy Sanderson. Other games had Germany against Norway, the United States against Sweden and France against Switzerland. As a result of sixth-round matches, Scotland had a 5-1 record, while the U.S., skipped by Dale Dalziel, and Sweden's Bjell Grengmark had three wins and three losses. With 2-4 marks were Switzerland's Cesare Canepa, France's Pierre Boan and Norway's Knut Bjaanas. Germany's Raederer had one win in six starts. While Duguid was breezing along to his easy victory against Germany Thursday night, Sanderson had his hands full with the Swiss. The Scotsman had to steal the final three ends to come up with his 7-6 victory. Canepa, with the score tied 6-6 in the 12th, missed a takeout to allow the Edinburgh rink its victory. Other night games saw the U.S. dump France 12-4, and Sweden outlast Norway 9-6. In the afternoon round, Duguid handled Sweden 10-6, Scotland needed two in the final end to down the U.S. 6-4, Switzerland beat Germany 9-3 and Norway edged France 4-3 in the lowest-scoring game in the history of the world competition. 'J'HE OXFORD dictionary defines rival as a person's competitor for some prize. Lethbridge Sugar Kings and Red Deer Rustlers, it can safely be said, are indeed rivals. They are not competing for one another's love. The exact opposite could best describe the situation. What they are competing for is the Alberta Junior Hockey League championship, and battling it out for top honors is nothing new between these two clubs. Three hockey seasons ago, or to be more precise, the spring of 1969, the Kings and Rustlers fought tooth and nail through a seven-game series with the Kings eventually winning the Alberta title and a trip into the western Memorial Cup playoffs. It was far and away the most successful season the Lethbridge Sugar Kings have enjoyed in their history in the six-team Alberta league. They stopped Victoria Cougars in six games and were finally beaten by Regina Pats in six games. Pats, as a matter of record, won the west and lost to Montreal Junior Canadiens in the Canadian final. Last year it was the Rustlers' turn. Kings had nothing to do with the good fortunes of the Rustlers as they lost out to Ponoka Stampeders in the semifinals. The stage, however, is set again for the Kings and Rustlers and only the theatres will be different. ? ? ? The Rustlers will still play their home games in the Red Deer Arena but the Kings will display a brand new building to the Rustlers, the Taber Civic Centre. A great deal of emphasis is put on home ice advantage. The Kings, even though the Arena has burned to the ground, will find Taber very much like home. The good people of Taber and the strong Lethbridge supporters proved that last weekend when the Kings ousted Edmonton Maple Leafs, finishing the series before a packed house in Taber. There was very little to choose between the two clubs over the season. Had the Kings not lost six points in the committee rooms they would have hard-pressed the Rustlers for top spot. As it turned out, they finished a solid second and have another crack at the league title. One factor that makes junior hockey exciting is because anything can happen and usually does. Odds on junior hockey games are harder to get than information was on Prime Minister Trudeau's marriage. The healthiest team will win the Alberta Junior Hockey League title, and from this corner the Kings look to be in as good a shape as they have been all year. ? * * Last weekend in Taber they played better than 90 minutes of hockey with very little rest, and like one fan pointed out "they were going just as fast at the end as at the beginning." Kings didn't get roughed up against the Leafs while the Rustlers and Calgary Cougars took turns running at each other. The Rustlers may be softened up for the final. Only time will tell. The two clubs meet in Red Deer Saturday and Sunday, and if the Kings can get a split they will be sitting pretty heading home to the friendly confines of the Taber Civic Centre Wednesday and Thursday. I will have to go with the Sugar Kings, but it will take them all seven games and it will be a tough series. My reasons may seem selfish but British Columbia is beautiful at this time of year and that's where the Kings would head if they won it all in Alberta. Also, informed sources say that the winner of the Alberta Junior League can go all the way. It's kind of exciting when you think of it isn't it? ? ? ? If you didn't see Joe Frazier knock Muhammad Ali down by travelling to Calgary a couple of weeks ago drop in at the Paramount Theatre starting Saturday and see the fight in color. According to Bob Shackleford, the film is 35 minutes long and shows plenty of action, including the knockdown. The film gets under way at 2:15 with continuous shows throughout the day. Minor hockey Garry Gross scored twice as the Ti-Cats downed the Stampeders 5-3 in Midget action Thursday. Mike Boychuk, Tim Cranley and Darrel Nason completed the scoring for the Ti-Cats with singles. Norm Michaelis notched a brace for the Stamps. Don Henderson was the other Stampeder marksman. In two Pee Week hockey encounters last night the Bisons tripped up the Penguins 5-4 and the Bears trimmed the Flyers 3-2. Chuck Moore was outstanding for the Bisons, banging in four goals, while Bruce Quick added a singleton. For the Penguins Jim Sev-ertson picked up a trick while Bryan Turner chipped in a single. The Flyers watched a 2-1 second period lead go down the drain as the Bears came back with two goals in the final period to gain the victory. Terry Bailey gave the Bears their first marker while Ron Schartz came alive in the third to tie the hard-fought contest. Vince Petherridge rounded out the Bears scoring with the tie-breaker. Duane Low paced the Flyers attack slapping in both their The Canadians led by Cam MacLennan's two goals bombed the Black Hawks 8-1 in a Bantam "A" game last night. The Canadians had no problems disposing their opponents as they held period scores of 2-0 and 5-0. Clarence Sirovyak, Dale Nesting, Lee Salmon, Lome Erick-son, Dave Jackson and Don Mills all tallied single markers to aid in the lop-sided victory. Lanny Hendry averted the shutout with a third period marker. JOINS BENY'S SALES STAFF Amateur sharing in lead JACKSONVILLE, Fla. (AP) - Lee Trevino shot a six-un-der-par 66 Thursday in the first round of the $125,000 Greater Jacksonville open golf tournament but he had to share first place with the lone amateur in the field, home-town boy Steve Melnyk. Both burned up the front nine of the 6,943-yard Hidden Hills course in 30 strokes and both eagled the 525-yard fifth hole. But they each settled for par 36 on the tougher back nine. Trevino and Melnyk led a pair of little-known pros by two strokes heading into today's second round. Vic Loustalot and John Schlee opened with 68s. Behind them came 27 more below par 72, including Gary Player, Arnold Palmer and Jack Nicklaus. Player called his 70 "a good score." Nicklaus, with a 71, said "I really can't figure why I didn't score better." Palmer and Wilf Homenuik of Winnipeg also shot 71s. Among those at 69 were Tony Jacklin of England and Ray Floyd, both former winners of the Greater Jacksonville Open. Ken Fulton of Montreal, the only other Canadian in the tournament, shot a 37-36-73.

Second game of the series Is scheduled at Edmonton tonight. The Monarchs held three separate leads during the course of the game but could not hold on in the final period. They led 2-1 at the end of the first period and the score was tied 2-2 going in to the final. Rookie Brian Dickie spearheaded the Calgary assault on goaltender Barry Richardson with two goals and an assist. Ron Huston got the other Stampeders goal on a penalty shot midway in the second period after he was hauled down by Ed Lawson while breaking into the clear. Scoring for Edmonton were Len Haley, Lou Halat and Don Chiz. MOST VALUABLE RED DEiER (CP) - Goalie Russ Gillow of Drumheller Miners was named the most valuable player in the Alberta Hockey League today following what league president Ray Marsh described as one of the closest voting battles in years services in Philadelphia spent much time on the phone Tuesday fending off callers who either wanted the rumor corroborated or wished to offer their condolences. On Thursday the heavy, weight champion's doctor, James Giuffre, said his patient was "in satisfactory condition and rapidly approaching normal." Giuffre said the 27-year-old Frazier's blood pressure reading was nearing normal limits. The physician said Frazier had to break his rest regimen Wednesday to give some interviews that prove "rumors that he was critically ill or dead were totally inaccurate." Giuffre emphasized that all tests conducted on the champion have turned out negative. "We can now almost assume that the high blood pressure was due to the stress and strain of his winning the fight with Muhammed Ali," he said. Frazier will probably remain in the hospital for the rest of the week, Giuffre said. Today he will be taken off a diet of liquids and soft foods and restored to a regular eating schedule. "Once he leaves here, Hs first stop will probably be at the gym for a workout," Giuffre said.
