Longhorns, in their initial year, finished in the league cellar, but they did it with class. They never gave up. It's easy to knock a last place club, but such wasn't the case this year. There was something about the 'Horns that kept people pulling for them The club was formed last July by five Lethbridge sportsmen, Herb Christie, Gordon Hoselton, Dr. Tony Pomohac, Harry Cox and Stan Maxwell. It was Maxwell, along with Don McLean, who molded the club into its final product. It's hard to say if their position would have been enhanced by being together all year, but let it be said that the club that finished the year was a much stronger contingent than that that left the starting gate last fall. Longhorns, not in a political move, but in a move of sincerity, promised last summer to keep the team at least 60 per cent local. Check it out, they did just that and then some. Certainly there were some outsiders. In this calibre of hockey one must recruit. But the air lift of players was minimal. There was the basis for a letdown. It became evident in the latter stages of the season that the playoffs would have to come under the classification of "next year" Maxwell may not take too kindly to that remark, but it was an uphill struggle the last month 3ut, as I said before, the fellows never said die. They even closed out the season by blanking their chief rivals, the Pass Red Devils, 4-0. Darrel Zaperniuk, the club's most gentlemanly player, slimmed it up best I thought at the banquet. "You can't live with 18 guys for seven months and not have he said, "but the comradeship was great all year long. It was just great Zaperniuk was one of eight Longhorns honored at the banquet Others who were called to the podium to receive silverware were Albert Dumont and Brad Cox who shared in the dedication to the team and game award.

It had to be a hard'choice to make, the entire club showed improvement all year. But Syrenne was tops. I can recall when he first came up into junior hockey. He looked like he was going on his first trip through the House of Wax with Boris Karloff as tour guide. But he just dug in and learned the ropes and barring any unforseen developments he'll be back to anchor a better Longhorn club next year. As for the top defenceman, it was Kent Lowry. He did all his growing up at once it seemed when he was made captain Low'ry was steady all year, but when he sewed the "C" on T mr 1 his sweater he became the leader the club had been lacking.

Switzerland (CP) "He was particularly sharp and I wasn't." That's how Hec Gervais explained his first loss in the .world curling championships it summed up things perfectly. Gervais and his rink from St Albert, Alta lost 7-3 to Bud Somerville of Superior, Wise., in the fourth round of the championship and it was simply a case of the Canadians making errors while the Americans curled almost flawlessly. After the fourth round, Swit- zerland was in first place with a 4-0 won-lost record, then at 3-1 were Canada, the U.S., Sweden and Germany. Scotland was at 2-2, Italy 1-3 with Denmark, and France and Norway trailed at 0-4. In today's fifth round, Canada plays Scotland, Switzerland is against Germany, the U.S. plays Sweden, Norway goes against Italy and Denmark plays France. In the sixth round, Canada has an important game with Switzerland, Italy plays Swe- den, Denmark plays Scotland, Norway plays Germany and the U.S is against France. Results of Tuesday's third round were- Canada 9 France 2. Switzerland 10 Italy 2, Swe- den 10 Denmark 7, Germany 10 the U.S 6, and Scotland 8 Norway 4 In other fourth round games it was: Switzerland 6 Norway Germany 7 France 3, Sweden 8 Scotland 3 and Denmark 8 Italy 7 in an extra end. About spectators showed up for the night round which pitted the U.S. against Canada Somerville and Jus rink of lead Tom Locken, second Bill Strum and third Bob Nichols made few mistakes and had the shots when they needed them. The Canadian crew of lead Darrel Sutton, second Warren Hansen and third Ron Anton were not at their best. An in- dication of their form came in the seventh end with Canada down 5-1 after Somerville stole two in the sixth. Devils draw even, Rustlers one away BLAIRMORE, Alta. (CP) The Pass Red Devils evened up their Alberta Junior Hockey League semi-final series Tuesday night with a 7-3 win over Calgary Canucks in a hard-fought contest sprinkled with 35 penalties. Lyle Murray and Stan Alstad scored two goals each for the Pass while Wayne Turner, Billy Kelts and Grant i Wells tallied singles Dave Scott, Mike Mclvor- and Ian Rowe scored for Calgary, which trailed the pass 4-1 after the first period and 6-1 after the second. The Pass outshot Calgary 36-30, and took 18 of the 35 penalties with four fighting majors, two game misconducts and 12 minors. Calgary was called for four fighting majors, three game misconducts and 10 minor penalties. The next game will be played at Calgary Thursday. The series is tied 1-1. Meanwhile, Brian Sutler scored two goals to lead Red Deer Rustlers to a 7-2 victory over Edmonton Mets and a three-game lead in their best- of-seven series. The Mets are winless. Other Red Deer goals come from Rod Bunn, Ron Lecuyer, Terry Wittchen and Dave Beardsworth. Rick Zaparniuk and Tony Currie' replied for the Mets. The Mets trailed 4-1 after the first and 6-1 after the second. Red Deer outshot the Mets 46-33 in the tough contest in which 38 penalties were called. Red Deer drew 13 of 25 minors and three of four misconducts. The teams split six majors and the Mets received two of three game misconducts. Investigation LONDON (Reuter) Crowd behavior at First Division grounds is to be investigated by a special committee at the request of the new Labor government, the English Football Association announced Tuesday Hoping to build a house, Gervais asked Sutton for rocks at the front of the rings. Sutton hogged them both. But it was really the sixth end that finished the Canadian crew. Trailing 3-1 with the last rock. Gervais was heavy on his first shot, running through the house on an open takeout attempt. Somerville put his second rock in the house and this time, attempting a take-out-and-stay, Gervais pulled up short That made the score 5-1 and Gervais was never really a threat after that "In the sixth I had a chance to pick up two, but I was heavy on my first rock and pulled up on my second which gave him a steal of said Gervais. "Instead of the game being tied we were down 5-1 and we .had to start to gamble a bit But. you know, that Somerville rink is tough and there was no way he was going to let us come back." The Canadian skip said, however, that "if I had to lose I m glad I lost to one of the stronger rinks Southern Alberta Juvenile League PLAYOFF HOCKEY (2nd Game of Best of 3 Series Claresholm leads series 1-0) Claresholm vs Left.

But what drew the ire of his team-mates was that he got the most kisses from the cute usherettes who gave out the trophies after each game The Hockey Hounds made it possible for the Park Plaza three-star selections and the banquet as well. I used to refer to the Hockey Hounds as the Kennel Club of hockey. It was all in jest. They do quite a job. I saved two names until last, for a purpose Randy Joevenazzo and Ron Krikke took home the other two pieces of silverware on hand last Friday night. Krikke was the rookie-of the year while Joevenazzo was voted most valuable. Both deserved better for great seasons I thought. Don't get me wrong, I don't mean better things from the Longhorns. I mean from the Alberta Junior League. Both finished in the top 10 in the scoring race playing for a last place club. I though'one of them might just make the first team. But for both to be left off the first and second teams, I found it hard to believe. But then I'm only one person. It was a great year for the club, all agreed. It was even worth standing at the end of Henderson Lake Ice Centre in all the water most of the year. quit HARRISBURG, Pa.
