Lethbridge Herald (Newspaper) - March 25, 1971, Lethbridge, Alberta THREE FORMER COLLEAGUES - Montreal Canadian*' captain Jeon Beliveau, third from right, accepts a symbolic cheque for $155,855, representing the amount of donations received to date Wednesday, from three former coaches, left to right, Punch Imlach, Roland Hebert and Toe Blake during a ceremony honoring the player. The money will bo used to help needy children. Rupp scores three times against Detroit Penguins still in fight for playoff berth By THE CANADIA NPRE88 Jeea Beliveau found Wednesday sight that pore-game celebrations make playing hockey a difficult task. On the other hand, Duane Rupp, who seldom has bad to worry about the attentions of thousands of fans, had his mind on the game and soared three goals. The three goals helped Pitta-burgh Penguins to an 8-2 victory over Detroit Red Wings and revived the Penguins' slim hopes of catching Philadelphia Flyers for a playoff spot in the National Hockey League West Division. The Flyers, meanwhile, suffered a 5-3 defeat at the hands of the nervous Beliveau and his Montreal Canadiens teammates. In other games, Bobby Hull's 44th season goal gave Chicago Black Hawks a 2-1 win over Boston Bruins and the return of Norm UUman helped Toronto Maple Leafs to a M victory over California Golden Seals.

"I think for perhaps the first time in my career, at least one of the very few times, I had my mind on something else prior to the start of a game. "I found the first period quite bard to play, Beliveau said. "I felt nervous and shaky. But the second period was better and I had found my legs again, and my mind, as the game went into the late stages. Beliveau set up John Ferguson for a goal in between two goals by Yvan Cournoyer as the Canadiens roared back from a 1-0 first-period deficit. At Pittsburgh, Jean Pronovost scored his 20th of the season and set up two others by Rupp Fund grows by $155,855 Big evening for Jean MONTREAL (CP) - Jean Beliveau Night was a success in every way. Beliveau, captain of Montreal Canadiens, was honored Wednesday night before the National Hockey League game between Montreal and visiting Philadelphia Flyers. "It was a great night for me," said Beliveau after the game, won by Montreal 5-3. "I was especially grateful to my team-mates for playing so hard to win. I thought, perhaps, they played a bit for me tonight." The pre-game ceremony lasted some 30 minutes and Beliveau was presented with gifts by his team-mates, the Flyers and the Canadiens' management. But the highlight of the ceremonies was the presentation of a $155,855 cheque to Beliveau for the Jean Beliveau fund. The cheque, inscribed on a board about the size of a door, was brought to Beliveau by three of his former coaches-Toe Blake, Punch Imlach and Roland Hebert, who coached him as a junior. While the Canadiens' team captain had agreed to accept certain gifts as mementos of the occasion, he would not accept any money. Instead, a special fund was created in Beliveau's name and all donations to the fund are to be used to aid underprivileged children. In a brief speech after the presentation, Beliveau thanked the organizers of the event and the contributors to the fund. "It is the greatest mark of esteem you could have shown me," Beliveau told a crowd of 17,154. "Thank you all very much for the work you have put into this night." Following his speech, Beliveau presented the cheque to three young hockey players, representing the underprivileged children of Canada. "The last few days have been very hectic for me and the organizers of the Jean Beliveau fund," he said. "I think for perhaps the first time in my career, at least for one of the very few times, I had my mind on something else prior to the hockey game. "I found the first period quite hard to play. I felt nervous and shaky. "But die second period was bettor and I had found my legs again, and my mind, as the game went into the late Yankees cut two players FORT LAUDERDALE, Fla. (AP) - Veterans Mike Mccormick, 32, and Pete Ward, 31, both acquired last year, were cut Wednesday by New York Yankees.

He was 3-4 with the Giants in 1970. LAST CHANCE!

Beliveau's wife Elise and his 13-year-old daughter Helens were at his side as reporters interviewed him after the game. "I do hope Jean can get a bit of rest after all this," said Mrs. Beliveau. "It has really been hectic." "Premier Robert Bourassa phoned Jean from Quebec City. There were many calls, as well as telegrams and flowers at the house. Very hectic, as I said, but very nice." Beliveau's home had visitors MONTREAL (CP) - While 17,154 spectators and hockey personalities were honoring Jean Beliveau at the Montreal Forum Wednesday night, thieves took advantage of the occasion to break into his suburban Longueuil home. Police said first reports indicated it was "a small robbery" with about $500 stolen from the National Hockey League star's home. The break-in was discovered by Rita Proulx, sister-in-law of the Montreal Canadiens' captain, who stopped at the Beliveau residence with her husband to "freshen up" before heading home to Quebec City. The first indication of a break-in was ashattered basement window. "I don't know what they got," Mrs. Proulx said, "but the safe was broken into and tilings were turned upside down. "Trophies, the television and things like that don't appear to be disturbed but they went through the drawers and wallets and threw them all over the place." She said - "jewellery and cufflinks and things like that were left lying around. Beliveau, his wife Elise and 13-year-old daughter Helene were believed to be celebrating his special night with friends when the break-in was discovered following the Canadiens' 5-3 NHL win over Philadelphia Flyers. and Keith McCreary as the Penguins jumped to an early lead. McCreary made it 4-0 with his second goal early in the third period before Tom Webster got the Red Wings on the scoreboard. A minute atfer Webster's goal, Rupp got his second of the night and wrapped up the game with his third in the last minute of play. The 32-year-old defenceman now has five goals for the season to go with his 26 assists, his best performance yet in three seasons with the Penguins. Pronovost also picked up his 21st of the season midway through the third period and Syl Apps had four assists for the Penguins who have five games left in which to catch fourth-place Philadelphia, six points up. The Black Hawks outshot the Bruins 38-25 at Chicago. Jim Pappin's 21st goal of the season midway through the second period matched a first-period marker by Boston's Fred Stanfield. Hull gave the Hawks their third win of the season against Boston with his third-period goal. The Bruins won two and tied one of the season games with the Hawks. Ullmah, who suffered a hand injury two weeks ago against Montreal, rejoined the Leaf line-up at Oakland and led Toronto with two goals. And rookie centre Darryl Sit-tier, out since Jan. 16 with a broken left wrist, came back to add another goal while Jacqu.3 Plante and Bernie Parent combined to score the shutout. Plante stopped 20 shots during the first two periods and Parent took over in the final 20 minutes to kick out another six shots. Right winger Ron Ellis broke a personal scoring slump that had stretched back to Feb. 13. He got his 23rd goal of the season Wednesday. California, recording its 49th loss of the season, is closing in on the league record for defeats. Los Angeles Kings had the most dismal performance of any club with 52 losses last season. The Leafs move on to meet the Kings in Los Angeles tonight while Vancouver Canucks visit Detroit Red Wings and Minnesota North Stars face the Flyers at Philadelphia. Proposal for change defeated PALM BEACH, Fla. (A:) -A proposal to change the National Football League conversion rule was defeated by the club owners Wednesday, but enough sentiment for the two-point option surfaced to lead Lamar Hunt of Kansas City Chiefs to predict its eventual adoption. The two-point option allows the team either to kick for a point or pass or run for two points after a touchdown. Thursday, March 25, 1971 - THE LETHBRIDGE HERALD - 11 Swedes, Russians draw in world championships BERN, Switzerland (CP) -The two unbeaten teams in this year's world hockey tournament, the Soviet Union and Sweden, teetered, recovered, and managed to avoid their first losses in Wednesday's play. The Soviet squad faced the Czechs before a sellout crowd that included hundreds of flag-waving Czech exiles. After Us devastating victories so far in the games, the Soviets found themselves in the unusual position of having to hustle to catch up in each period in order to end up with a 3-3 tie. The Swedes, who have been winning by narrower margins than the Soviets, were held scoreless until the last period after Finland scored early in the first off the stick of Veli-Pekka Ketola. With less than three minutes remaining, Thommy Abrahamson finally got the equalizer for a 1-1 tie. The Soviets and the Swedes each have seven points in four games, but the Soviets, defending champions, are well ahead in goals for and against, with a 32-8 record. The Swedes have an 18-10 for-against record. The Finns are in third place with five points, followed by the Czechs with three, the United States with two and the West Germans, who have been beaten every time out. In the only game scheduled today, the Germans will be facing off against the U.S. squad, which is winless since its surprise opening-day win over the Czechs. Friday it will be the battle of the titans as Sweden and the Soviet Union take to the ice. The Czechs and Finns alio play Friday. The six teams then move to Geneva for the final round of the double round-robin tourna-moot* U.S. coach Murray Williamson said Wednesday the Soviets now are into the tough rounds. "The Czechs gave them a fright," he said, "and Friday the Swedes might do the same." He said he thinks the contest is still wide open with several teams capable of upsetting the Russians, who are shooting for their ninth straight world championship. In Wednesday's game, the Soviets never really got their normally well-oiled machine into top gear, though they came close to clinching the game in the closing minutes. The Czechs were aided con- Toronto sign running backs TORONTO (CP) - Bill Sy-monds and Dave Raimey, who finished 1-2 in yards gained rushing in the Eastern Football Conference last season, will have new competition for their starting berths in Toronto Argonauts' backfield this season. The Argonauts today announced the signing of running backs Bob Campbell and Don Cherry. Campbell, a graduate of Penn State, was Pittsburgh Stealers' fourth-round choice in the National Football League draft in 1969. He used mainly on punt returns by the Steelers. Cherry, from Wichita State, played two seasons with Orlando Panthers of the Continental League. siderably by the fine goaltend-ing of Jiri Holocek, although the game was generally rather wild and untidy with both teams missing many good scoring opportunities. The Czechs attacked strongly, getting the first goal of the game from Edward Novak in the first while the Soviets were a man short. Alexander Martin-juk retaliated for the Russians before the period ended. Vaclav N'edomamsky and Jir Holik put the Czechs out in front twice, but the Soviets got quick equalizers from Anatoli Firsov and Vladimor Petrov. Summaries CHICAGO � BOSTON t First Period - 1.

NHL players can further education MONTREAL (CP) - A program enabling National Hockey League players to extend their university education during the off season has been instituted by the league. The NHL announced Wednesday that two six-week courses will be offered at the bilingual University of Ottawa. The cost of the courses would be shared by the players and their clubs. The semesters would run from about May 20 to the end of June and from the beginning of July to the middle of August. Since 1967, when sponsorship of junior players ended and a rule was adopted prohibiting the elevation of junior players to the NHL until their 20th birthday, many players had been able to start on a college education. It was hoped that the new program would encourage mora youngsters to pursue a hockey career in the knowledge that they would not have to forsake their education. NHL president Clarence Campbell said in a statement: "This is a major step forward for the NHL and for its players. This program is an honest effort to provide the educational tools with which players will be able to move into successful careers once they complete their roles as active players...."
