Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - March 28, 1974, Lethbridge, Alberta Hawks resting Tony Esposito Thursday, March LETHBRIDQE HERALD-13 Veisor still hasn't lost By GLENN COLE The Canadian Press Midway through this National Hockey League season, goalie Mike Veisor was wondering if he would be better off playing in the Central Hockey League rather than sitting on the bench. Veisor, last year's CHL rookie of the year and top goaltender, had been watching Tony Esposito perform his netminding magic for Chicago Black Hawks. But with Chicago more or less resigned to finishing second in the West Division AND BROUGHT TO YOU BY SUREIS.TACK.THERE'S 9KN SOME ENORMOUS COMMUNICATIONS INCUR LIFETIME J'ILL A LOT BE SAID SMILE; Foreman, Norton are held, taxes must be paid first CARACAS (AP) Heavy- weight boxing champion George, Foreman and Ken Norton, along with their handlers, were held in Caracas today pending posting a bond for payment of taxes. "Everything is in said Bill Biron, one of the San Diego group which handles Norton. "The promoter has left town, leaving us with a lot of bills and commitments. "We have wired the United States urgently for to get us out of the country. We understand Foreman's group is doing the same thing." Meanwhile, the head of a Caracas travel agency who saidj he was owed went to court to have the sophisticated television equipment of Video Techniques, Inc., impounded at the airport. Video Techniques, with headquarters in New York, sponsored the title fight here Tuesday night in which Foreman defended his crown by stopping in two minutes of the round. Henry Schvartz, executive vice-president of Video Tech- niques, flew back to New York Wednesday after announcing a Foreman-Muhammad All fight in Africa in September. "He left owing me said Eddie Blackwell, director of the Tortuga Travel Agency. "He owes us for telex, phone installations, trans- portation and for a number of other facilities. Overtime loss for Red Devils EQUIPMENT RENTALS S.. LatttrMp RED DEER (CP) A goal by at of the first overtime period gave Red Deer Rustlers a 6-5 win over Pass Red Devils in the opening game of the best-of- seven Alberta Junior Hockey League final before fans Wednesday night. Peter Skrabyk scored two for Red Deer and singles came from Doug Gillespie, Cam Colborne and Irvine Bowles. Lyle Murray and Wayne Turner each scored twice for the Pass with Craig Styles getting the other. The Pass trailed 5-2 late in the second period but mounted a comeback with Styles' goal at of the third period forcing the sudden-death overtime. The teams were tied 1-1 after the first period then Red Deer led 5-3 going into the third. The teams split eight minor and two major penalties. Red Deer goalie Ron Bourcier made 24 saves compared with 36 by Mike McColIam of the Pass. The second game in the series will be played in Red Deer tonight. "I saw him Wednesday morning and he said he would see me later, but he skipped Blackwell said. "We have impounded his truck at the airport." Foreman, guaranteed 000, and Norton, guaranteed were promised their purses would not be taxed if they fought in Caracas. "We would not put that in the contract because of a Venezuelan law that forbids anyone to pay another person's said Biron, a former vice-president of Convair Corp. in San Diego. ASSURED NO TAXES "However, I have a dozen witnesses who will testify that we were guaranteed no taxes. "The government is not only demanding 18 per cent of the fighters' purses but also a per- centage of all television receipts. This could require a sizeable bond, especially in the case of Foreman whose purse was much larger than ours." The U.S. Embassy said it is keeping up with the situation and has recommended lawyers who might assist in the situation. The fight was ill-fated from the beginning, marked by con- troversy over rules and re- peated threats by both sides not to go through with the bout. As a result, the closed- circuit television, which was supposed to provide the bulk of the revenue, was reported to be a financial disappointment. It was this situation which forced Schwartz to make a hurried trip to New York before completing details in Venezuela, said Alex Valdez, a representative of Video Techniques here. behind Philadelphia Flyers, coach Billy Reay decided to give Veisor some experience. In the seven games Veisor has started this year, Chicago has won six and tied one. The latest win was 5-3 over Toronto Maple Leafs Wednesday night. Philadelphia won 6-2 over St. Louis Blues, Detroit Red Wings downed Buffalo Sabres 3-1, Minnesota North Stars and Pittsburgh Penguins tied 3-3, Boston Bruins edged New York Rangers 3-2 and New York Islanders and California Golden Seals tied 2-2.

Inge Hammarstrom scored twice and Brian Glennie added the other Leafs goal.. Flyers 6 Blues 2 Left winger Ross Lonsberry scored his 25th goal and added two assists to lead Philadelphia. Goaltender Bernie Parent won his 44th game of the year, tying an NHL record set by Terry Sawchuk in 1950-51 and again in 1951-52. The Flyers now lead second- place Chicago by eight points.
