Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - March 23, 1974, Lethbridge, Alberta Saturday, March 23, 1974 THE LETHBRIDQE HERALD -wn Norton, claims Foreman a cheap imitation of Liston Bill White----------------------------------------------------------- to sit out Both fighters lean to words rather than actions five games MONTREAL (CP) Defenceman Bill White of Chicago Black Hawks of the National Hockey League today was suspended for five games by league president Clarence Campbell for an attack on an official during a game Sunday in Chicago. White. 34, did not play Wednesday night at Chicago during a 3-2 loss to Buffalo Sabres pending a ruling on the incident. He will be eligible to return to play Saturday, March 30, against the Red Wings at Detroit. White received a game misconduct penalty and an automatic fine for attacking referee Ron Wicks in an argument following a last-minute goal by Atlanta, Flames in a 3-3 tie last Sunday. The Flames' Bob Leiter was entangled in the Chicago net when Jacques Richard scored the tying goal. Wicks ruled the goal was legal because Leiter had been propelled into the Black Hawk net by Chicago's Jim Fappin. Wicks was explaining the ruling to Chicago defenceman Dick Redmond when the official "was suddenly struck a. vicious blow on the side of the head by White's Campbell said in a statement.' White then wrapped his arm around Wicks' head in a choking type of deadlock and shook him violently several Umes Redmond and Stan Mikita both received games misconduct penalties for continuing the argument. Campbell's statement also said that Chicago trainer Lou Varga has been fined for insulting remarks" COUGARS AND HAWKS CHICAGO (CP) Walter Kaiser, president of Chicago Cougars of the two-year-old World Hockey Association, said Wednesday his team already has reached parity with the Black Hawks of the established National League and he's "issued a challenge" to prove his point. By DAVE ANDERSON New York Times Service CARACAS, Venezuela Behind him, the tops of the greenish brown mountains disappeared in the clouds. Below, sunlight sparkled on the windows of modern office buildings and autos zoomed along the freeways. In a blue denim jacket as is his manner. Ken Norton was sitting on a terrace Friday at the Tamanaca Hotel where he has been staying in his role as the the challenger for George Foreman's world heavyweight title. In a few hours he would depart to a hideaway in the hills to await Tuesday night's title bout at the Poliedro, a new seat arena. With its global aluminum roof, it resembles a huge spacecraft that landed next to the Rinconada Race Track where Canonero II once ran. Norton finished his sparring there Thursday but with the fight still several days away, it was a time for words instead of action. "I'd like to box up to he was saying. "Eddie let me do it. Bill doesn't want me to do it. Bill's the boss." Eddie Futch trained Norton for several years, guiding him through his 12-round victory over Muhammad Ali nearly a Mixed curling finals Sunday WINNIPEG (CP) The 1974 Canadian mixed curling championship gets underway Sunday and, for .the first time in a number of years, there is no clear-cut favorite. Organizers of the 11-round competition look to western rinks to be there at the finish, but a number of veteran curlers warn that foursomes from Northern Ontario and New Brunswick, with their vast experience, could surprise some folks. The Moncton, N.B.. rink is led by Ed Steeves who has competed twice in the national Brier and is back for his third shot at the mixed title. His wife Ruby, a 12-year curling veteran, is lead and the experienced husband-wife duo of Jim and Peggy Piers are second and third. Jack MacFarlane of Sault Ste. Marie, Ont., whose rink features two brothers and their wives, also has Brier experience. One of the youngest foursomes in the event is the Rick Folk rink from the University of Saskatchewan at Saskatoon. Their average age is 23 years, but in that time they have packed in ATTENTION WRESTLING FANS! We regret tfwre to no professional wrestling this week.

Folk. 24, has won the Saskatchewan schoolboy title he was second in the national final junior title and represented the university in conference playoffs for three of the last four years. ALSO HAVE EXPERIENCE The remainder of his rink, third Cheryl Striton, second Tom Wilson and lead Bonnie Orchard, have records almost as impressive. With the exception of Steeves. there are no repeaters this year, one of the factors in throwing the field wide open. The first round begins at 2 p.m. CST p.m. with two rounds daily until Friday when the final round is scheduled. The youngest rink is from Prince Edward Island and for two members of the rink, it is a return engagement in Winnipeg. Skip Bob Carruthers. 23. and lead Rosemary Scott. 20. both competed for the provincial boys and girls rinks in the 1971 Winter Games in Winnipeg. Second Margaret Griddtngs. the oldest member at 28. has the most experience, eight years, mostly at the local level. The other rinks are skipped by Roger Comeau of St. Albert. Alta.: George Mosissey.

B.C. year ago that made him a prominent contender. Not long after Norton's loss to Ali in the rematch, Futch took over as Joe Frazier's new manager. Norton's co-managers. Art Rivkin and Bob Biron, considered it a conflict of interest. Bill Slayton was hired as the trainer for the title bout. "Their basic preparation is the Norton continued. "Eddie's stern. His way was it. But with discuss it." Norton will be heavier than ever before. He'll be around 213 at the weigh-in, compared with 211 and 205 for the Ali bouts. "The theory is, I need extra weight and extra power this he explained. "I'll still have my speed. I want to nullify his strength with my speed. I'm no Ali but I move in my own way. I think I'm in better shape than he is, mentally and physically. I always think that. Like if I fought Jesus Christ tomorrow, I'd think I was in better shape. If you don't think you're in better shape than the other guy, the battle is lost right, there." After his workout Thursday, Norton was getting a rubdown in his dressing room at the Poliedro when Foreman arrived. Instead of going to his dressing room, the "Campeion" leaned on the glass wall. Silently, he glared at Norton's door. After about 10 minutes, he was tired of waiting. He walked inside and pounded on Norton's door five times with his huge right fist. With a quick smile, he disappeared into his own dressing room Norton left later. "I was told he was out Norton recalled. "After my rubdown, he was gone. He's trying to mix Ali with Sonny Liston but he's a cheap imitation of both." Norton has emerged as the popular favoite of the Caraquenos, many of whom appear to resent Foreman's serious, almost sullen, manner. About an hour after Norton's champion appeared on the patio of the Avila Hotel on the ledge of a mountain where he is lodged. His brawny forearms buldged from a brown checked jump suit. When he sat in a big white wicker chair, swimmers dripped out of the nearby pool and stared at him. "Why is Norton the sentimental he was asked. "I'm loved the champion replied. "I just passed a little girl and she told TICKETS on HcfcM wW 901 MM couoanltr. LETHBRIDQE A.C.T. Avenues., ITkM KM S4M 1 Ttatate me, '1 love you.' "How little was "In the waist mostly." He was informed of Norton's remark that he is a "cheap imitation" of Ali and Liston, and he shrugged. "It's best be try to imitate he said. "It's really best he imitate Houdini and disappear." He was asked about his inclination to push opponents with his gloves, as he did in dethroning Frazier. "I don't he said. "It sure looks that way." "It might be the way your eyes Foreman said. "I'm not going to push Norton, just like I never pushed anybody else. I don't push people. I just hit them." If the champion pushed him, Norton has threatened ,to retaliate with a punch to the champion's abdominal cup. "There's two interrupted Dick Sadler, the champion's manager. "He better have one on too. And he ought to put a cup on his chin. That's where he really needs the cup." Sadler expects Foreman to weigh about 218 pounds, nearly 30 pounds less than when he started training about six weeks ago. "I'm in good the champion said. "I'm hard. I'm ready. But if I can afford it someday, I'm going to going to be fat. I like to eat. I really like to be fat." "You're prettier when you're he was told.
