Laval 7th Straat Shopping Mall Lathbridge, Alberta Phone (403) 321-7411 ADDING MACHINES Chynoweth says nothing is definite on Swift Current transfer My father Len probably said it best when I talked to him Wednesday after the farce they called the Foreman Norton heavyweight championship of the world bout. he said, "that's one more down and just big mouth to go." Now my father, like me, likes to see the Montreal Canadiens get their lumps. He likes the Detroit Red Wings, the Baltimore Orioles, the Los Angeles Dodgers and the Calgary Stampeders. What he doesn't like is Muhammad Ali, and again we agree. Oh how I would like to have a dollar for everytime I have wished someone would flatten Ali., Joe Frazier came close. But close isn't good enough. Ken Norton broke his jaw, but it didn't slow him down much. Now he is going to fight George Foreman. Do you think possibly, that Foreman may be able to put an end to the legend of Ali? I do. I have been dreaming about such a match-up since Foreman knocked Frazier cuckoo to win the world crown. Here he is I thought to myself, the guy to put Ali out of our misery My contempt for Ali grew more, and I didn't think that was possible, in the aftermath of the Foreman Norton fight. "He hits pretty said Ali in describing Foreman's one-sided victory over an outclassed Norton. Ali even went so far as to admit that Foreman can hit harder than he can. But Ali still thinks he can outbox him. Ali's trainer, Angelo Dundee, in what can only be described as a publicity stunt, says "I pray to God Foreman fights like that against All. If he does, Ah will be the new champion." "My continues Dundee "will stick him, hit him with straight shots and pick him to pieces." Dundee must be a magician. He spotted all of these weaknesses in Foreman in a fight that lasted five minutes. And not only that Norton was on his backside for half a minute of that time. How can anyone, Dundee or anybody else, find a way to beat a man like Foreman when the man has destroyed three opponents in less than 12 minutes? The word on Norton's chances to defeat Foreman were straight and simple. Stay away from him and try and outbox him. If Norton shows his head just once, it's all over. I didn't see or hear the fight, I simply read reports much the same as you did. Norton, himself, admitted he made a mistake. He should have tried to box more. Norton says Ali can beat Foreman because Ali is a classic boxer. Foreman is simply a devastating puncher. I'm no boxing expert, I'm just in the fortunate position to give you my opinion. And in my opinion, there isn't a heavyweight around today who will beat Foreman. A Mack truck going five miles an hour is powerful and Foreman moves much faster than that with much the same power. The Ali of four or five years ago may have been able to stay away from a Foreman long enough to build up the necessary points to win. But not anymore. The legs are gone and so is a great deal of the talent. No. I firmly believe, for the umteenth time, that Ali will get his comupance when he takes on Foreman. If he takes on Foreman. Local interests adopt wait, see approach By PAT SULLIVAN Herald Sports Editor Ed Chynoweth, president of the Western Canada Hockey League says that nothing is definite regarding the transfer of the Swift Current Bronco franchise to Lethbridge. Local interests have adopted a "we'll wait and see what takes place next Wednesday" attitude. That, as it stands now, is the situation surrounding the main occupants of the seat Sportsplex, set to open Oct. 1. It was officially announced by Bob Bartlett of the City of Lethbridge Community Services Wednesday that Swift Current Broncos of the WCHL had made formal College rodeo all set application to move their franchise here for the 1974-75 season. "All this does is verify what is already very well said Bartlett when he made the announcement. Nothing, however, is definite. While the Swift Current club, with owner Bill Burton making the application, has made known its hopes so have the owners of the Lethbridge Longhorns of the Alberta Junior Hockey League. Longhorns Monday requested the city give them an exclusive lease on ice time at the new Sportsplex for the 1974-75 season. Both the Longhorn bid and Swift Current bid have been tabled at least until next week. Next Wednesday Chynoweth and Burton are expected in Lethbridge to give their propsals to the city. "Let me make this very said Chynoweth in a telephone interview Wednesday. "The moving of the Broncos to Lethbridge is far from a certainty." What Chynoweth did point out was that the WCHL board of governors did give Burton the okay to negotiate with the City of Lethbridge for the Sportsplex. "We told Burton to go ahead and explore the possibilities of taking his franchise from Swift Current to added Chynoweth. Chynoweth, the first full- time league president in the history of the WCHL, said that the league had to investigate the possibility of putting a team in Lethbridge. As he put it we have a beautiful facility, a drawing area of people and are ready for major junior hockey. The WCHL, under Chynoweth's guidance, has a five-year plan. It takes into consideration expansion, the transfer of teams and also where to move these clubs. "Lethbridge, I can tell you." said was high on the list of considerations for a team in the league." The WCHL is a business and Lethbridge could soon be a part of it. How do the locals feel about it? "We don't want anyone mad at us." said Stan Maxwell one of the owners of the Longhorn operation who have also made known their desires for ice time at the Sportsplex. Maxwell went on to say that they (the Longhorns) do not want to jeopardize their position. They are definitely for Tier one hockey but are concerned about what will happen to Tier two. The Longhorns, despite finishing in the cellar of the Alberta Junior Hockey League in their initial year, did keep junior hockey alive in Lethbridge. "What happens to the kids, particularily the locals, if the WCHL moves in, I would like to added Maxwell. He pointed out that the Longhorns have spent a great deal of money in pursuit of a WCHL franchise but have come up empty. All they did discover, says Maxwell, is that the Canadian Amateur Hockey Association has no control over the junior hockey in Canada at the Tier one level said Maxwell in closing, "Bartlett and the city have been fair with us. More than fair actually, and we are certain they will be again." At the moment the Sportsplex is empty but the bidding is getting bigger and better all the time for its use. Minor hockey Rory MacLennan registered a hat-trick and carried the Flames to a slim 3-2 victory over the Penguins in a Pee Wee game Wednesday night. Barry Streliev tallied twice in a losing cause. Jim Szucs fired in a pair of goals and paced the Bears to a 3-1 win over the Jets in another Pee Wee tilt. Rick Gal chipped in a single marker for the winners while Doug Canadine replied for the Jets. PREBUiLT HOCKEYCLUB WINNERS Nancy Shigehiro Rita Veldman Clarence Strovyak Jr. Meanwhile the Stampeders crushed the Coaldale Generals 8-1 in a Midget playoff encounter Tuesday night. Alan Boras led the Stamps with three big goals while Bill Hnatiuk, Steve Campbell, Gordon Keith, Bill Henderson and Lloyd Krikke chipped in with singles. Jake Van Seters notched a first period marker for the Generals. Three straight goals by Brian West propelled the Eskimos to a 5-3 decision over the Royals in another Midget contest. Ken Serbu aided with a pair of goals while Barry Sedgwick. Terry Emand and Dave Snopek replied for the Royals. All is ready for the third annual edition of the LCC Indoor rodeo.

Nothing's changed '76ers the worst By The ASSOCIATED PRESS Philadelphia 76ers finished with the worst record ever in the National Basketball Association last season, 9-73. and thought they had the last laugh by drafting then-junior Bill Walton. But even a reported offer of million couldn't lure Walton, UCLA's superstar centre, to Philadelphia. This year, the '76ers finished with a 24-57 record. -Benny "Bob Pringte" -Oadabra plus "Mountain Man WHHamaon" n "Anthony tfw BaautHuT Hosted by...

"There's no control for luck." said coach Gene Shue after Philadelphia stunned Boston Celtics 117-108 in the National Basketball Association Wednesday night. "The significant thing about the season was that we became competitive." In other final games of the regular season, Seattle Sonics trimmed Phoenix Suns 127-123 and Portland Trail Blazers beat Golden State Warriors 132-122. The Celtics finished first in the AUantic Division witii a 56-25 record. In the American Basketball Association.

Carolina Cougars beat Virginia Squires 99-91 and San Diego Conquistadors dropped Kentucky Colonels 121-108. WINNIPEG (CP) The possibility of a playoff at the Canadian mixed curling championship loomed larger today with New Brunswick, Alberta and Saskatchewan the main contenders after eight rounds. Skip Ed Steeves and his Moncton rink were able to breath easier Wednesday night after Bill Kennedy's last-rock takeout attempt slid harmlessly by and let the New Brunswick rink steal two to win 9-7 over British Columbia. "That sort of makes up for last night and evens things Steeves said, referring to a clean miss Tuesday night that resulted in his only defeat. Roger Comeau led his St. Albert, Alta., rink to an easy 9-6 win over Northern Ontario, improving their record to 6-1. That gave them a second- place tie with Saskatchewan and left them the only two rinks with a real chance of catching new Brunswick. New Brunswick has the inside track with the bye in today's ninth round before playing Newfoundland (3-5) in the 10th round tonight and Northern Ontario (3-4) in Friday's final round. Saskatchewan, whose only defeat so far has been at the hands of New Brunswick, has yet to meet Ontario, Manitoba and Alberta. Comeau plays Quebec, Prince Edward Island and Saskatchewan. NEARLY LOST GAME Steeves, the most consistent skip in the championship, al- most lost his win in the eighth end when an attempted raise take-out turned into a double raise triple-kill of his own stones. The shot left Kennedy's New Westminister rink sitting three and an easy draw produced a four-ender and a 7- 6 lead. But Steeves got a single back in the ninth with a crucial draw against two B.C. counters. He tried hiding behind a long B.C. guard in the 10th but was slightly wid.e and left Kennedy a wide-open take out. "He took about eight inches more ice than I Steeves said. "He had the weight to be there, but was just an inch wide." In other eight round games Bob Carruthers of Charlotte- town rolled up a 10-6 win over George Morrissey of Welland, Ont, Marty Dalton directed his St. John's rink to a 10-4 verdict over Dean Naugler of Halifax; and Wayne Johnson of Winnipeg was good with his last-rock draw to beat Andre Desjardins of Kenogami, Que., 5-3. In the seventh round New Brunswick beat Nova Scotia 10-6: Northern Ontario nipped Manitoba 5-4; Quebec tripped up Ontario 7-6; and Saskatche- wan and Alberta took last- rock, 7-6 victories over P.E.I, and Newfoundland. r 8 ELRICH TIRE SPORT SCORES NATIONAL Eatt Division W L T F A Boston.....50 14 9 330 199 109 Montreal 42 22 9 271 222 93 Rangers___38 22 13 280 226 89 Toronto 32 26 15 252 214 79 Buffalo .30 32 11 226 238 71 Detroit 28 35 10 238 296 66 Islanders .17 38 18 172 231 52 Vancouver. .20 42 11 203 280 51 West Dfviiion Phila 15 11 248 147 103 Chicago 37 14 21 247 150 95 LA ..30 31 12 210 217 72 Atlanta ...27 32 13 193 221 67 Minnesota ..23 33 17 226 247 63 Pitts .......25 38 9 220 255 59 St. Louis ...24 38 11 190 229 59 Calif.....13 50 10 184 318 36 SCORING LEADERS GAP Esposito.
