Lethbridge Herald (Newspaper) - March 24, 1971, Lethbridge, Alberta 12 - THE UTHMIDGI HIRAIO - Wednesday, March 24. 1971 IN IT GOES-Sr. Louis goalie Ernie Wokely, on bended thdt in Vancouver Canucks 4-knee, was helpless when Danny Johnson (8) tipped in a victory In Vancouver Tuesday 1 National Hockey League night over the Blues. Four hurlers impressive in exhibitions Czech meet Russians There could be some fireworks 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 between the two for the gold medal. The Russians, by mopping 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 the title. The Czechs upset the Russians twice in 1969 but they lost twice to the Soviet Union in 1970. This year, the Czechs got off Pitchers take over from hitters By THE ASSOCIATED PRESS Spring training is that time of year when the pitchers are supposed to be ahead of the hitters, but last year Steve Carlton, Luis Tiant, Tommy John and Tom Griffin weren't ahead of anybody. Such wasn't the case Tuesday as all four hurlers turned in im- pressive exhibition outings. Carlton, a 20-game winner in 1969, slipped to 10-19 a year ago. Tuesday he worked seven strong innings, yielding only two Has nothing to say Muhammad Ali resting CHERRY HILL, N.J. (AP) -Muhammad Ali swivelled slowly in the lounge chair 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 more fans and more photographers bothering me than ever. And really don't have anything to say. What's important about me anyway?" For Ali, 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. And, more surprisingly, he said he didn't want to fight 10 SPEED SPORT BICS , . with drop bars, light and fast far brisk readwerk, ideal for physical fitness, weight central . . . popular with cycling clubs and in amateur sports.

"He's resting (meaning Joe Frazier, his 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 conciliation the public rarely sees or hears. Ali insisted it was not a new image, not a switch 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." Ali'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 might be hit by a car or fall off his motorcycle. "I'll 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, Ali always was loud and clear on who was "the greatest." Since the ctobbering 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 still me." His wife, Belinda, nodded. "He's always been quiet around the house," she said. "He's still 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 $200,000 Spanish style ranch home. He escorts friends through the hous* and around the unpaved, unsod-ded grounds. He has been living in the place since early February, after he gave a $75,000 home in northwest Philadelphia to his parents.

PRICE 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 Minnesota, but the Twins got him plenty of runs and he was beset by injuries much of the year. His contribution Tuesday was four innings, one run, four hits, two walks and four strikeouts in the Twins' 8-3 romp over Atlanta Braves. John, counted to be half of Chicago White Sox' 1-2 pitching punch, finished with a 12-17 record. He stifled New York Yankees on one run through seven innings Tuesday and the White Sox pushed across a run in the eighth 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 earned-run average with Houston. Tuesday, the Astros battered Los Angeles Dodgers 8-3 and Griffin went six innings, allowing three hits and three runs, two of them unearned. But Tuesday's pitching hero was Shoji Murata of Japan's Lotte Orions. He pitched a complete game six-hitter and fanned 13 in a 9-4 triumph over Cleveland. It was the 22-year-old right-hander's second complete game, the first coming against California. The Angels didn't have to face Murata this time but had their troubles with San Diego Padres, who scored twice in the ninth and held off California 5-4 Tommy Dean, who drove in Ms first run of the spring earlier in the game, brought home the tie-breaker with a single. Some other strong pitching was turned in by Detroit Tigers' Joe Coleman, who stopped Kansas City 6-1 with seven good innings and received home-run support from Norm Cash, Willie Horton, Aurelio Rodriguez and Dalton Jones. EXPOS EDGED Jerry Janeski, recently traded to Washington Senators, blanked Montreal Expos for five innings and the Senators won 4-3. Joe Foy drove in three runs with a homer and double and Frank Howard also homered. Ray Newman, Joe Decker and Juan Pizarro teamed up for a s i x -h i 11 e r as Chicago Cubs whipped San Francisco Giants 8-0. Baltimore's Jim Palmer was pounded for six runs in six innings in a 7-4 loss to Pittsburgh Pirates and Oakland Athletics' Chuck Dobson was raked for six runs in five frames as Milwaukee Brewers made off with a 9-3 victory. New York Mets scored an unearned run in the 11th inning on a walk, throwing error and Tim Foli's sacrifice fly and nipped Boston Red Sox 5-4. SULLY SAYS -By Pat Sullivan 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 fined 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 thing 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 Dwayne Bolkoway. It was Bolkoway who jabbed his stick into Chapman's face twice and really added fire to the already burning 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 Bill 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 Henwood 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 with 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 goalie 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. Marlands edge Brooks in opener The Lethbridge 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 Magee, 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 on the remaining three. The other goals came off the sticks of Ken Cairney, Keith Schlichter and Tom Crawshaw. The second game will be played Saturday at 4:30 p.m. at the Adams Ice Centre. YOUR HEADQUARTERS IN LETHBRIDGE FOR LEE and LEVIS JEANS LEO SINGER'S MEN'S AND BOYS' WEAR 214 5th STREET S. PHONE 327-3953 Ken Buchanan to meet Laguna NEW YORK (AP) - Ken Bu chanan of Scotland, the world lightweight champion will defend his title against Panama's Ismael Laguna 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, scoring 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 during today's sold-out contest, but they are unlikely to be political as in the 1969 tournament in Stockholm, where exiles bitterly protested the Soviet-led invasion of Czechoslovakia in 1968. The Czech team here it obviously well-disciplined 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 six-country tournament with 3-0 won-lost records and she points. Although the Russians seem as strong as ever in their bid for a ninth 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 Swedes were almost as effective in beating the West Germans Tuesday 7-2. The United States, after upsetting the Czechs 5-1 last Friday, has lost three straight, including a 7-4 defeat at the hands of Finland Tuesday. The Fins, in third place with a 2-1 mark and four points, play Sweden in today's other scheduled game. The double-round-robin tournament is split into two tions. 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. (AP) -New Orleans was a surprise selection on the 14th ballot as host city for the Super Bowl game Jan. 16, 1972, commissioner Pete Rozelle of the National Football League announced Tuesday. The Super IUIIUIIIIIU�IIIIIIIIIIIU(IIIUIIUU�4 ELRICH TIRE SPORT SCORES McKenzie stated that that wasn't the only mis take made. He couldn't have hit the nail on the head more accurately. This lack of discipline and author ity 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 the 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 the 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.
