Lethbridge Herald (Newspaper) - March 24, 1971, Lethbridge, Alberta 12 - THE lETHBRIDGE HERAID - Wedneidny, March 24, 1971 BERN, Switzerland (CP-AP) - The Soviet titleholders and Sweden, the only unbeaten teams in the 1971 world hockey championships, both face tough matches today that could swing the tournament toward a battle Jliili^lilliiSlliiiM IN IT GOES-St. Louis goalie Ernie Wakely, on bended shot in Vancouver Canucks 4-knee, was helpless wherj Danny Johnson (8) tipped in a victory in Vancouver Tuesday 1 National Hockey League night over the Blues. Four hurlers impressive in exhibitions Pitchers take over from hitters By THE ASSOCIATED PRESS Spring training is that time of year wlien the pitchers are supposed to be ahead of the hitters, but last year Steve Carlton, Luis Tiant, Tommy John and Tom Griffin weren't alxead of anybody. Such wasn't Uie case Tuesday as aU four hui-lers turned in im- pressive exliibitJon outings. Carlton, a 20-game \vinner in 1969, slipped' to 10-19 a year ago. Tuesday he worked seven strong innings, yielding only two Hm nothing to say Muhammad Ah resting CHERRV HELL, N.J. (AP) - Muhammad Ali swivelled slowly in tlie lounge chaii' and spoke softly, his face relaxed and impassive. "I thought the press would leave me alone when I got whupped," he said. "Now I got mm-e fans and more photographers bothering me than ever. And really don't have anything to say. What's important about me anyway?" For All, now 29, having nothing to say, and admitting it, is something important. He didn't look or talk like the brash, savage, insulting fighter he was.

"He's resting (meaning Joe Frazier, bis recent conquerer). I'm resting. The public needs a rest, too." It was a cool, low-key style of modest grace embellished in a tone of friendly concihation the public rarely sees or hears. Ali insisted it was not a new image, not a switdi from the loud - talking, poetry - spouting boastful former heavyweight champion he usually portrayed. "I'm just not working at my game. I'm not on the stage. I'm just trying to finish fixing up my house, that's what counts now." All's face was still puffed two weeks after the March 8 beating he took from Frazier-"his is a lot worse, though, and I still think I won," retaining some recognizable bravado in his whispered explanation. He expects another chance. "We'll do better next time, if we get another one," he said. "And if we don't, we don't. "I might be in jail (referring to his draft resistance case), and he miglit l)e hit by a car or fall off his motorcycle. "I'E go back promoting when I get another fight. You'll hear." Before he resumed active fighting, his licence restored by court edict after a three-year layoff, AU always was loud and clear on who was "the greatest." Since tlie clobbeiing by Frazier, though, he shuns "the greatest" phrase and shrugs off references by shrewdly shifting the subject. STILL THE SAME "I haven't changed," he insisted. "I'm stiU me." His wife, Belinda, nodded. "He's always been quiet around the house," she said. "He's stiU the same. He hasn't changed. He plays with the children, spends half his life on the telephone, always brings home friends." At home he is charming, like a country gentleman, proud about his place, a $2(K),0O0i Spanish style ranch home. He ee-corts friends through the houso and around the unpaved, unsod-ded grounds. He has been living in the place smce early February, after he gave a $75,000 home in northwest PhUadelphda to hi"; parents.

PHONE 327-3953 runs as St. Louis Cardinals trimmed Cincinnati Reds 5-2 with Jose Cardenal collecting two doubles and two singles. Tiant, once a star with Cleveland Indians, turned in a deceptive 1970 record of 7-3 with Mn-nesota, but the Twins got hdm plenty of runs and he was beset by injuries much of the year. His conifcributioni Tuesday was four innings, one run, four hits, two walks and four sbikeouts in the Twins' 8-3 romp oVer Atlanta Braves. John, counted to be half of CMcago White Sox' 1-2 pitclnng punch, finishedi with a 12-17 record. He stifled New York Yankees on one run through seven innings Tuesday and the White Sox pushed across a aim in the eiglith to win 4-3. ALLOWED 3 HITS Griffin, an impressive 1969 rookie, spent part of last season nursing his sore arm in the minors after compiling a 3-13 record and a 5.76 eamed-run average with Houston. Tueaiay, the Astros battered Los Angeles Dodgers 8-3 and Griffm went sfac innings, allowing three hits and tliree runs, two of them unearned. But Tuesday's pitching hei'o was Shoji Mui-ata of Japan' Lotte Orions. He pitched a complete game six-hitter and fanned 13 in a 94 triumph over Cleveland. It was the 22-year-old right-hander's second complete game, the first comuig against California. The Angels didn't have to face Murata this time but had theu' troubles with San Diego Padres who scored twice in the ninth and held off California 54 Tommy Dean, who drove m his first run of the spring earUer in the game, brought home (he tie-breaker with a single.

Czech meet Russians There could be some fireworks between the two for the gold medal. The Russians, by mopptog up the weaker � opposition so far, built a perfect foundation for their game this afternoon against Czechoslovakia, which must win to stay in contention for Uie title. The Czechs upset the Russians twice m 1969 but they lost twice to the Soviet Union in 1970. This year, the Czechs got off SULLY SAYS -By Pat Sullivan Trudeaii salutes Jean Beliveaii JOHN CHAPMAN, coach of the Lethbridge Sugar Kings, may never know just how lucky he was in Red Deer Saturday night. Chapman, first-year coach of the Alberta Junior Hockey League team, was ejected from the first game of the league final with Red Deer Rustlers and, as a. result, his grocery bill will have to be $25 less than last month as he was fmed that amount by league vice-president Ian McKenzie in an official statement Sunday following the Saturday evening brawl. "Chapman was lucky,' said McKenzie. "Lethbridge got all the breaks." What a way to start off an explanation of a fine for Chapman and Red Deer coach Alf Cadman. "If Alf (referring to Cadman) hadn't been thrown out of the same game, for the same tlung as Chapman, the Lethbridge coach would have been in trouble," said McKenzie. You can take that last statement as you please, but from where I stand, it meant that Chapman got off lucky because McKenzie, in his role as assistant czar in the league, also had to fine Cadman and, of course, the fine was the minimum. McKenzie also made the outlandish remark that he heard Chapman order John Snodgrass, the only Lethbridge player left on the bench when a donny-brook broke out, to go after Dwajne Bolkoway. It was Bolkoway who jabbed his stick into Chapman's face twice and really added fire to the already buniiiig brawl. I can only marvel at this man's hearing. By his own admission, McKenzie was standing atop the exit at the Red Deer Arena's north end. The players' boxes are at ice level in the centre of the rink. Now that takes some doing to hear that distance with 1,153 fans screaming at the combatants in the fight. When asked about this aspect of the situation, McKenzie backtracked to say, "well, I saw him gesture Snodgrass to the Red Deer bench." Can you be sure, Mr. McKenzie? Chapman may have simply been motioning Snodgrass back onto his own bench. Concerning the brawl, McKenzie admitted it was not handled like it should have been. "There were a lot of mistakes during the fight," he said. Are we to believe that you found fault with referee BiU Bucyk just as we did Mr. McKenzie? Two things griped me about this absolutely ridiculous brawl. What kind of bush-league tactic is it to come out and congratulate your goalie after he makes one big save? Dale Kenwood made an outstanding save on Dave George, who had been awarded a penalty shot, and the Red Deer bench emptied. Some cheap shots, verbally and physically, were taken at George and things got out of hand. Bucyk was standing at centre ice vnth the puck watching when things broke out. The other thing was the attack on goalie John Davidson. The Lethbridge netminder was out of his net and at centre ice, as was Henwood. The Red Deer goahe later skated back to his net. Davidson, however, didn't get the chance as he was confronted by John Sapinsky who left the penalty box to engage in battle with Davidson. Sapinsky, who should have at least been ousted from the game, didn't even go back to the penalty box but was one of five Rustlers left in the game to play out the final minute and some seconds. McKenzie stated that that wasn't the only mistake made. He couldn't have hit the nail on the head more accurately. This lack of discipline and authority has plagued the Alberta Junior Hockey League all season? A feeble, lacklustre attitude has been used to try and resolve too many problems of late. It's time something was done about it. And another thing. I question a league vice-president who spends his time between periods in the home team dressing room such as was the case this past weekend in Red Deer. ? ? ? Rustlers lead the best-of-seven league final 2-0 with the third and fourth games set for the Taber Civic Centre tonight and again Thursday at 8:30. Sugar Kings had their chances for victory in both games in Red Deer, losing 3-1 and 3-2. Chapman isn't planning any major changes for the Kings. He feels the horses he used in Red Deer can do the trick. We think so too. The locals can't, however, afford to split tlie two games. A split would give the Rustlers a 3-1 lead in games heading back into Red Deer. A situation such as this would place Uie Kings squarely behind the proverbial eight ball. On the other hand, a Sugar King sweep would open the doors to a brand new series, a best-of-three affair. If such becomes the case the Kings would have to win at least once in Red Deer and that they can do. Marlaiids edge Brooks in opener The Lethbridige Marlands travelled to Brooks Monday night and came home with a one game lead in the Southern Alberta Pee Wee finals. The Marlands picked up a hard - fought 7-6 victory over the Brooks Lions in the first game of the best of three series. Scott Jarvie paved the way for the Marlands coming up with three big goals while Roc-kie Ma gee, Dennis Ludwig, Tom Block and Duane Len-drum chipped in with singles. Lome Osmond also played a key role in the victory picking up four helpers. Nolan Gausno was outstanding for the Lions as he featured in all their goals. He rammed in three markers and assisted oo the remaining three. The other goals came off the sticks of Ken Caimey, Keith Schlicbter and Tom Crawshaw. The second game will be played Saturday at 4:30 p.m. at the Adams Ice Centre. OTTAWA (CP) - Vrum Muiislcr T r u d ? 3 ij Tuesday praised Jean Beliveau. centre with Montreal Cana-diens, for having given new prestige to tlie game of hockey.

The prime minister said: Ken Buchanan to meet Laguua NEW YORK (AP) - Ken Buchanan of Scotland, the world li^tweight champion will defend his title against Panama's Ismael Laguma in a 15-round bout at Madison Square Garden Wednesday night June 9, it was announced Tuesday. Buchanan took the title from Laguna last Sept. 26 in San Juan, scoruig a 15-round decision. to a poor start, bowing to the Americans and Swedes, and a loss today to Russia would just about kill their remote chances for a gold medal. There may be fireworks dur-mg today's sold-out contest, but they are unlikely to be political as m the 1969 tournament in Stockholm, where exiles bitterly protested the Soviet-led invasion of Czechoslovakia m 1968. The Czech team here is obviously well-disdplined and the tournament organizers have taken steps to prevent large groups of Czech exiles now living in Switzerland from starting a row at the rink. The organizers refused to sell large blocs of tickets for the game. TWO UNBEATEN The Russians and Swedes head the sbc-country tournament with 3-0 won-lost records and sbc paints. Although the Russians seem as strong as ever in their bid for a nmth straight world title, even the best side rarely remains unbeaten in the strenuous 16-day world championship program in which each country plays 10 games. While the Czechs showed a glimpse of their true form in routing West Germany 9-1 Monday, the SNvedes were almost as effective in beatmg the West Germans Tuesday 7-2. The United States, after up-settuig the Czechs 5-1 last Friday, has lost three straight, including a 7-4 defeat at the hands of Fmland Tuesday. The Fins, in thu-d place with a 2-1 mark and four points, play Sweden in today's other scheduled game. The doubleiTOimd-robm tournament is split into two sections. The first half winds up Friday with Sweden playing Russia. The second half begins in Geneva Saturday and ends April 3. NEW ORLEANS NEXT PALM BEACH, Fla.
