For those of you who are interested it is very embarrassing to have a four-year-old come up to you on the ski slopes, flat on your back, and ask you "are you okay Don Maclean, who some years back toiled at this very typewriter, tells me he cracked up at the recent Elks Bonspiel... He felt sure he had a good seen and heard but fie din't know the guys name But according to Mac, a Calgary curler, feeling little or no pain at all, let his rock go to start the first end and he stopped at least 20 feet in front of the hog line.. Without so much as a grin, the guy turned to a team-mate and said "the ice here in Lethbridge is much longer than it is in Calgary" Don't you feel sorry for a guy like Rick Barry... A standout with the Golden State Warriors of the National Basketball Association, Barry was recently fined for bumping an official. Don't start taking up a collection folks, he will still make in salary this year The Games City Hockey Schools are fast shaping up as far as instructors go Garry Cana'dine is the most recent name listed under the heading instructor Guest instructor for the schools will be Vic Stasiuk And speaking of guests, Donald Jackson will be back in Lethbridge as the featured skater in the Lethbridge Figure Skating Club's ice show Jackson, for my money, is one of the greatest figure skaters in history His triple lutz, which stunned the hometown crowd of in Prague nine years ago is still remembered A recent ABC "Wide World of feature listed Jackson's feat as one of the highlights of the sport in the 60's He was ranked right up there with Muhammad Ali's phantom punch KO of Sonny Listen; miler Jim Ryun's world record run of Arnold Palmer slaying the Scots in Troon with his record 276 victory in the British Open plus clips of the late, great Vince Lombard! work Not bad for a Canadian competitor I have come to the conclusion that Montreal Canadiens will not retain the Stanley Cup this year... The loss of Ken Dryden, and an ever growing fued between Scotty Bowman and some of his players, have left the Habs somewhat short of what it will take to repeat... I would like to see New York Rangers win it all, if only for the sake of Frank Boucher and Garry Allison, they have waited oh so very long... One thing is for certain, if the Philadelphia Flyers win it all it will rank as one of the' biggest disappointments in my life They don't deserve to play in a place like the Philadelphia Spectrum, they should be made to play in a back alley And as far as their sweet and innocent leader Bobby Clarke, if he ever won the Lady Byng they would have to make Eddie Shack the most valuable player m the league Rumblings out of Medicine Hat has John Chapman, coach of the Pass Red Devils of the Alberta Junior Hockey League, heading that way next year to take over as coach of the Western Canada League Tigers While in Calgary Thursday, Cowtown sports scribes were referring to a Lethbridge team called the Bombers or Broncos...

Apparently two groups are looking for ice time to ice a junior hockey club next year in the Canada Winter Games Sportsplex Believe it or not, I have consulted with no one on this prediction... George Foreman will dispose of Ken Norton inside of five rounds Tuesday night and then later in the year will close the book on Muhammad Ali once and for all. Bottle barely misses Munro By GORDON GRANT CP Sports Editor BERN, Switzerland (CP) Bud Somerville doesn't usually give free advice to his opponents, particularly not to the skip he meets in the semi- final of the world curling championship. But the United States skip offered some to Peter Attinger of Switzerland before today's semi-final. "Because you went through the round-robin undefeated, don't pack the world championship trophy Somerville told him. Somerville of Superior, Wise., champion in 1965, said that going through the first nine games without a loss isn't important. "There's only one important win in this tournament and that's the last one. Remember last year Harvey Mazinke of Canada was 10 and 0. Then he lost the last game and Sweden The Herald Sports In action tonight Craig Koinzan, left and Jim Furlong will be in action tonight at the LCI at eight o'clock when the Calgary Stampeders take on the Community College Kodiaks in an exhibition basketball game. At half time in the game the News Media will play the Canada Winter Games office. All proceeds will go to the Winter Games. Laatsch triumphs BANFF. Alta. (CP) Alberta won the Canadian legion curling championship Friday with a 7-6 victory over Newfoundland. The Al Laatsch rink of I'incher Creek took the title when Newfoundland, represented by the Bruce foursome of Gander failed with a last rock take out on an extra end of a tiebreaker playoff game. In regular play, both rinks had a 6-3 record after dropping last-round games earlier Friday. Newfoundland defeated Alberta Thursday morning in their regular round encounter. New Brunswick's Lou Dugre rink from Chatham. Manitoba's Zeke Nowosad nnk from Flin Flon. and Saskatchewan's Burley Townsend rink from Regina tied for third with 5-4 records. The Earl Jesse nnk from Trenton. Ont.. and British Columbia's Earl Glover rink of Vancouver were fourth with a 3-6 record. Prince Edward Island's Ron Brown rink of Summer-side was last with a 2- 7 mark.

In the championship, the 10 teams play each other once and then the top four teams go into a playoff, the first-place finisher meeting the fourth- place finisher and the second and third teams meeting. The winners advance to a sudden- death final. In the week-long round- robin, Switzerland was the only undefeated team, finishing with a 9-0 won-lost record. Canada was 7-2, the U.S. and Sweden 6-3, Ger- many, Denmark and France 4- 5, Norway and Scotland 2-7 and Italy 1-8. The U.S. finished fourth and the Swedes third because Swe- den won the game between the two rinks. As a result, Sweden, skipped by Jan Ullsten. plays Canada, skipped by Hec Gervais of St. Koosman looked sharp allowing three singles ASSOCIATED PRESS Jerry Koosman stifled the Cardinals on three hits in six innings while homers by Dave Schneck and Benny Ayala helped New York Mets tag St. Louis veteran pitcher Bob Gibson with a 10-0 loss in exhibition baseball Friday afternoon. The Mets banged out 12 hits while the Cardinals could manage only five. Both Schneck and Ayala hit three- run homers Schneck's came in the fourth after a leadoff double to Don Hahn and a bunt single by Felix Millan. Ayala's blast came in the fifth after Wayne Garrett drilled a two-run single. In other action, San Francisco Giants defeated Oakland A's 5-4, Atlanta Braves trimmed Texas Rangers 4-3, Los Angeles Dodgers drubbed New York Yankees 14-4, Milwaukee Brewers scored a 6-1 decision over Cleveland Indians and Pittsburgh Pirates blanked Kansas City Royals 5-0. Games between Montreal Expos and Cincinnati Reds, Houston Astros and Boston Red Sox, and Detroit Tigers and Philadelphia Phillies were rained out. San Francisco jumped to an early lead when Gary Miners host 'Great Falls Lethbridge Miners' Library will be at home for a pair of exhibition games with Great Falls Hawks this weekend. Tonight at eight at Henderson Ice Centre and again Sunday morning at 11, the Miners' and Hawks will exchange blows. Miners won the City Recreation title recently while the Hawks, the only hockey club in the State of Montana, play strictly an exhibition season and depend almost solely on Canadian teams for competition. It is hoped that if the weekend set of games is successful the Hawks may be able to work in more games next season. Matthews doubled home a run and Ed Goodson tripled in two more in the first inning off John Odom. The Giants gained their fourth straight victory despite three runs batted in by A's captain Sal Bando. Frank Tepedino's sacrifice fly in the ninth inning scored Rod Gilbreath with the winning run for Atlanta. Atlanta had taken a 3-0 lead in the first inning before Texas tied the game with a three-run second inning. Steve Garvey and Willie Crawford drilled home runs as the Dodgers took advantage of seven Yankee errors. MAKES THREE ERRORS Shortstop Fred Stanley made three of the New York miscues, two on the same play in a six-run, sixth inning rally for Los Angeles. Dave Parker cracked his third home run in two days, a three-run blast, to provide a cushion for Pittsburgh pitchers Jerry Reuss and Kurt Tekulue, who fashioned an eight-hitter. Reuss went six innings, allowing seven singles and striking out three. Albert, Alta. In the first meeting between Switzerland and the U.S the home town rink won 5-4 with a last-rock takeout and stay by Attinger, 23. I would hope to turn the tables said Somerville. For Attinger to win the world championship he probably will have to beat two former champions Somerville and Gervais. He already has beaten them once, but some observers don't think he can take them both again. It will be a tough job for the young man who has been cur- ling only four years. Attinger beat the Canadian crew 5-3 in the round-robin, aided by a steal of three on the first end when Gervais wrecked on a guard while trying to draw for one. Gervais said he is not con- cerned about whom he meets in the final. "I just want to make sure I get there. If we do get past Sweden then I'll begin to think about the final." In the ninth round, Canada beat Manfred Raederer of Germany 7-1 in eight ends, Switzerland topped Fleming Pedersen of Denmark 11-5, Sweden downed Szur Loen of Norway 4-3, the U.S. whipped Jim Waddell of Scotland 8-2 in eight ends, and Pierre Duclos of France defeated Renato Ghezze of Italy 13-8. Gervais upset BERN, Switzerland (Reuter) Canada was eliminated from the world curling championships today, losing to title-holders Sweden 8-7 in the semi-finals. The final between Sweden and the U.S. will be played later today.
