Lwrar Uwl 7th Start Phono (403) 328-7411 HOMEAND OFFICE SAFES Foreman carries plenty of weight against Norton CARACAS (AP) Ken Nor- ton will need his power of positive thinking in tonight's 15-round heavyweight title bout against bull-strong George Foreman. "I am a thinking fighter, not a physical the 28- year-old former marine said Monday as he approached the most important ring test of his life as a 3-to-l underdog. "I believe it takes positive thoughts to win. I have those positive thoughts." He faces a six-foot-three- inch titleholder who clubbed Joe Frazier into helplessness with six knockdowns in two rounds 14 months ago in Jamaica. But Norton also is a six-three athlete and has a long reach and bigger biceps than Foreman. He weighed in at 212% pounds Monday. Foreman, at is seven pounds heavier than in the Frazier fight. The championship bout will start at p.m. MTS in the Poliedro. TICKETS STEEP Hundreds of the seats, priced from to probably will be unoccupied. But Video Techniques, handling ancillary rights, reports closed circuit booking in 200 locations with one million seats in the United States and Canada, and sales to 70 countries overseas. Foreman's trainer, Dick Sadler, failed in efforts to get an American referee, and the Venezuelan Boxing Commission will name two Venezuelan judges and a Venezuelan referee shortly before the bell. The commission is a World Boxing Association affiliate, and was backed by the WBA in its decision. The rival World Boxing Council had claimed the right to name one official, and promptly announced Monday it would not recognize the winner as champion. The hassle over jurisdiction further dulled a fight that has failed to capture popular interest. In the midst of preparations for this fight, promoters announced plans for a Foreman-Muhammad Ali bout in Zaire Sept. 30. LOST TO ALI Norton was virtually unknown until he cracked Ali's jaw and won a 12-round decision a year ago this week. Ali came back to avenge the loss with a close 12-round decision in September, but Norton remained a contender to be reckoned with. He closed his heavy, training schedule last week and hid out in the nearby mountains "to meditate." He took with him a copy of Napoleon Will's book, Think and Grow Rich, which deals with positive thinking, and segments of a mail order course he is taking entitled The Philosophy of Success. "I am a the challenger said, "This is the technique I like and hope to use against Foreman. Against Ali, it's necessary to be a chase-hunter. I like to slip punches, block them and counter." This will mark the second title defence for Foreman, 25, plagued by divorce proceedings and also being sued by groups in Philadelphia and Las Vegas, claiming percentages of his ancillary gains. Some observers here, in- cluding former champion Joe Louis, contend that these dis- tractions and lack of tough competition have made the champion a likely target for an upset. "I think Norton will says Louis. New Brunswick has no losses WINNIPEG (CP) Skip Ed Sleeves says his New .Brunswick rink has made its share of errors at the Canadian mixed curling championship but "mistakes aren't bad if you don't let them bite you." Sleeves, third Peggy Piers, second Jim Piers and lead Ruby Sleeves, although not sharp Monday, produced the key shots ,to beat Saskatchewan 7-6 and Ontario 7-5 and remain Ihe only unbeaten rink. Their 4-0 record gets its loughesl lest today, however, when they go against Manitoba and Alberta. "It was a struggle tonight, we didn't curl all that well.... We'll have to curl better tomorrow or we won't be said Sleeves, 38, a Monclon chiropractor. "We've made some lough shots, bul we've missed some easy ones. So far Ihe breaks have aboul evened themselves up." Rick Folk of Saskatoon and his University of Saskatchewan crew beat Newfoundland 13-4 in the fourth round to remain in second place wilh a 3-1 record. Maniloba, Alberta and Northern Ontario are next at 2-1. Wayne Johnson of Winnipeg got his second win, 7-5 over British Columbia, on a con- troversial call on last rock. He was one up coming home but Bill Kennedy of New West- minster had last shot. In the olher fourth-round game Roger Comeau of Al- bert Alia., beal Dean Naugler of Halifax 8-5.
