Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - March 28, 1973, Lethbridge, Alberta In French or English site is a hit Miss Bourassa comes ov er beautifully March 38, 1973 THE UTHWID6I HMAVO 13 New York Times Service NEW YOB.K It's (ill very 'well to characterize her as Uic Lee Trevino of the women golf pros, but Joeelyne Bour- assa, who has progressed from French Canadian ama- teur athlete of the year to rookie of the year on the 1072 tour of the Ladies Profession- al Golfers Association, as- pires to more than a we'.l ballyhooed career as a player. With her education, friendly presence, eharir. and the in- triguing French accent with which she wrestles the Eng- lish language, the Monireal girl, at 25, has all sorts of op- tions. She already is on the way to being a goodwill am- bassador. She is a pro on- stage. Her witty chatter, com- bined with the gamine ap- pearance, eclipsed all the male pros when she spoke re- cently at a golf dinner. Miss Bourassa is in town to publicize tho Colgate Dinah Shore tournament of April 12- 15 at Palm Springs, Calif. As part of that assignment, shar- ed with Carol Mann and Mar- lene Itogge, Jocelyne spent part of trie afternoon Monday in Gunbeis Auditorium, chat- ting with a Tew golf fans and giving putting tips. She invited members of Ui9 audience to take turns at stroking a few balls at a hole cut in a plywood and carpet "green." An experienced in- structor, she was quick to spot and correct faults in stroke, grip and stance. She also got into such eso- terica as sighting with the predominant eye, the grain of a green and Ite value of over- spin. All lightly done with poise and banter, interspersed with self-deprecating com- menSs about her accent. That diffidence is deceptive is quite comfort- able with words lilie feed- back, input, kinesthesis (mus- cle orient, acceleration and accentuate. She also is well versed in sociology and she is thinking 'of taking "more" courses in business administration. After the Gimbels stint, Miss- Eourassa talked privately about some-of the things she might do. One of them is to teach the sociology of sports the phys-ed and to that end she is writing a master's thesis at the Uni- versity of Wisconsin. Making good on the tour is a means to an end. One idea she has is to earn enough money to buy or invest in a year-round sports center in the Laurentians of Canada. Joce, as she sometimes is called, loves golf, but she will not let the pro tour crush her. "I don't want to get too in- volved, day after day and week after week, under all that she said. "After a while you tend to forget people and the world around you, the environment. I don't ever want to lose per- spective." What else does she have in mind? Some day she may go into golf clinics and pub- lic relations, which in golf are closely related. She has completed Patty Berg's course on golf clinics as part of her contract with Wilson, the club manufacturer, and she is scheduled to give a series of clinics and exhibi- tions this fall in Japan. "A goll clinic is the art o! she explained, "more than teaching." She considered Monday's appearance as nei- ther show-biz nor teaching. "It was she laughed. "Nobody told me what was expected." Miss Bourassa has a nimble mind. Occasionally it causes her to forget to complete a thought. "My mind jumps on she said. "My speech (iocs not follow my mind, I think half and half in French and English, and the mind- it floats." Red Wings used sucker power?

By GERRY BUTTON (CP) II curlers were superstitious, one couldn't blame them for picking a red stone hi to- day's seventh round of the Ca- nadian mixed championship. The luck of the draw gave Saskatchewan and Manitoba the red rocks in eacli of the fifth and sixth rounds Tuesday and they won both games, 'vaulting into a share of first place with five wins and one defeat apiece, In fact, rinks using red stones in the third day of tlie 11-rink round-robin tournament won all 10 games. Sam Richardson ol Hegina had something going for him in tlie evening round when Doug Cameron of Charlottetown went through the house on a free draw for the winning point on the and final end with the score tied 3-3. Saskatchewan members watched and stole two points for a 5-3 triumph. Luck, however, had nothing to do wilh Winnipeg's Barry Fry coasting to a 9-2 win over Jim Armstrong of Richmond, B.C., in another sixth-round game.

Jt's called Sucker Power. Jean Murney, a neighbor of Mickey Redmond's parents in Peterborough, Out., knew Red- mond liked the taffy suckers she makes from an old English recipe when he was a boy. So when Mrs. Mumey found Redmond's parents would be at Maple Leaf Gardens to watch Detroit take on Toronto, she sent the suckers along. Redmond and some of his team-mates, gobbled up the candy, then they went put and licked the Leafs while Red- mond became the seventh NHL player and the first Red Wing to enjoy a 50-goal season.
