Barrel Wallis scored twice for Red Deer and Gord Dillon added the other. Rick Austin, Derek Haas and Mel Zinger replied [or tile Red Devils, who trailed 3-0 after the first period and 3-2 after the second but battled back to tie the game.

I sal in on an informal gathering ot the board of directors of the Lethbridge Lakers this week and found oul Ihey are more than a lit- tle optimistic about the 1973 season, their second in the classy Alberta Major League. Lakers, as a brief refresli- er course, finished fourth in their initial year in the lea- gue. Al one time Ihey led the league wilh an 8-1 record. But, as in all Cinderella stor- ies the Lakers' carnage turn- ed into a pumpkin and the" horses ail became mice. But, to hear Ihe directors of Ihe club, il will be all white horses and carriages this time around. Good news, eh what? I was sworn to secrecy by club president Reno Lizzi, but I don't think he will be too upset if I let you in on a lit- tle of the planning for the 1073 season. After all, who pays the bills?

Ihe club is look- ing south of the border for a possible playing-coach. "We're in the market for someone who can run the ball club and if he can play a po- sition, all the said Liz7i. The idea of a playing-coach is not just a pipe dream. Some concrete work has been done on the idea and in the not too distant future the Lakurs may announce the name of a fellow just for that job. As well as a playing coach the club is on the lookout for ball players. In particular, American players who would be interested in spending a couple of months here doing Lakers, and they make it clear to a man, learned a great deal last year. "We brought in one -ball- player last year, Jeff DeRe- cat from added Lizii. "One player vmn'l make that much difference when the other clubs have four in the starting line-up." Lizzt has .talked with Buzzi Bavasi of the San Diego Pad- res and Walter O'Malley. of the Dodgers but nothing has developed as. yet from their correspondence. Rice, on the other hand, bad a .lengthy talk with Vcrnon Law at Brigham Young Uni- they do best, playing ball. Mind you, the league allows only four import players, so negotiations are limited. If you'll recall last year the locals were on top of the six-team league early in tlie year .The roof caved in on them when the rest of the clubs had their imports ar- rive. "We held our own with any club in the league until they brought in 'the reserves from the stated Wes Rice. That is fact, not fiction. Until the paid players arrived on the scene in Calgary and Edmonton, the- Lakers were in the thick of things. versity and came away with a feeling that possibly one or two players from BYU may .end .up playing in Lethbridge colors this summer. "Law .told me that his club was committed to a tour of Alaska in said Rice "but he also said they would be coming back this way and we could talk to some of the players." No harm in that. At least its a place to start. And start they must. Th e Lakers open at home against the Calgary Giants, May 22, a Tuesday evening. Between now and then, they have, to coin an old phrase, their work cut out for them. Soviets narrow winners MONTREAL (CP) Claudo rerragne, a University of Mon- treal student, set a Canadian in- door high jump mark of seven 'eet three inches at track meet Friday night between Canada and the Soviet Union. FeiTagnc, 20, bettered his previous record by one inch but it did not stop the Russians from winning the over-al match 150 points to 114. The So- viet women had a 57-47 edge.

Oscarius said he decided to ut the Swedish rocks into the ick of the house in the 10th nd "to put pressure on them to make it rough." France, in the semi-finals for e first time, cracked under e strain. Mazinke said the; semi-final usslc with Scotland was "our .mghest of the championship Alex made some fine hots." Canada earned a playoff erth by piling up a. M record the championship's round- obin section and now has won 1 straight games in world com- rctition, a string that extends ack to 1909 when Ron North- ott finished with an 8-1 record.

Mazinke said that only once before this season did he face a more difficult shot than the one required to beat Scotland. The Canadian contingent got a standing ovation from a sell- out crowd of at Regina Stadium, a hockey arena con- verted for curling use. The fans were also partial to the Swedes and cheered when the French skip missed with his last rock. _ Sweden was one of the few rinks to give Canada problems in the zinka won Oscarius said later the Canadians can be beaten by "brilliant curling and strategy."
