Lethbridge Herald (Newspaper) - March 29, 1971, Lethbridge, Alberta Monday, March 29, 1971 - THI IETHBRIDOE HERAIO - 11 Dawson feels he has solution Canadian position to change? GENEVA (AP) - A top Canadian hockey official said today he thinks there is a chance that a solution could be reached tc bring Canada back into international play but emphasized: "It will be done with no strings attached." Earl Dawson, president of the Canadian Amateur Hockey Association, and other Canadian officials met with the International Ice Hockey. Federation until late Sunday night to try to find a solution to the problem of Canada's exclusion from world and Olympic tournaments. Dawson said afterward: "We felt our meetings were fairly successful for Canada." He said he thought Canada South boxers strut stuff Taber hosts finals By GARRY ALLISON Herald Staff Amateur boxing held the spotlight Saturday afternoon and evening at the Taber Civic Centre Auditorium as the Taber Boxing Club hosted the southern Alberta provincial eliminations. A total of 87 bouts were run off before a two-show audience of over 500, with the winners moving on to the Alberta finals in Edmonton April 24. Entrants came from clubs in Taber, Vulcan, Hinton, Blackfoot and Blood Reserves, Calgary, Lethbridge, Mountain View, the Crowsnest Pass, Breton, and Rocky Mountain House. The province it divided into two sections with the southern section consisting of towns and cities south of Edmonton. The northern section, Edmonton and all points north, also held their eliminations Saturday. One of the best bouts of the Taber show saw Taber's Daniel Johnson grab a split decision victory from Guy Boutin of Hinton, to capture the 95 pound junior division honors. The boys were evenly matched and battled furiously from the opening bell with Johnson getting the best of the fray in the Judges' eyes.

The referee stopped his bout with Bill Brezovski! of Taber, giving him the 139 pound trophy in the novice class. Rinke swarmed over the Taber boy at the opening bell. He had Brezovski in great difficulty with a flurry of punches to the head when the referee stopped the contest, saving Brezovski from further punishment. A promising Taber heavyweight and current Alberta Golden Glove champion. Warren Amaniuk, won the novice heavyweight trophy. Amaniuk was hitting Gilbert Schaffer of Mountain View almost at will when the referee stopped the bout in the second round. Schaffer was a game competitor but was outclassed by Amaniuk. While there were no knockouts on the 37 bout card, the referee saw fit to halt 13 fights before the three round limit. Under the new amateur rules there are no technical knockouts and a referee can halt the contest whenever he feels i boxer is taking too much punishment. This prevents any serious injury and is in line with the new safety-minded thinking in amateur boxing. SHORT JABS. . . Without a doubt this was the smoothest running show one will see anywhere, with never a m'nutes delay . . . refereeing duties were handled bv Earl McLeay of Calgary and Lloyd Knibbs of the Taber district ... a number of trophies were presented to boxers who had no competi tion in their class ... 60 pound Jimmy Knight showing an amazing amount of ring know-how for a youngster as he won the 60 pound junior trophy ., Calvin Callihoo, Hinton, provided the crowd with a lighter moment as he fought through most of his three round 60 pound fipht with the seat torn out of his trunks . . .

Such a tournament would involve Sweden, the Soviet Union and Chechoslovakia. MADE STAND KNOWN "We made our stand at several meetings in Switzerland, Dawson said. "Basically, we want open tournaments so that Canada can compete on a fair basis. "We had  feeling that some members of the International Hockey Federation thought we were divided on the points we made. "In our meetings here I think we have gotten across the idea that we are not split. "Today we had a genial meeting with the federation officials. "We wanted to have this open tournament on an exhibition basis. We made our points and were still standing by them. "But we wanted the open tournament on an exhibition basis first and then we said we would discuss other matters, like Canada entering Group B or C in the world championship afterwards. "I got the impression that the IMF thought: Well, they're not divided, we've got to listen to them if we want them back. We made our marks and we'll go from there." WANTS TOURNAMENT FIRST Dawson emphasized he wanted the open tournament against the Swedes, Russians and Czechs first and then would discuss other issues from there. "We're prepared to take one thing at a time," he said. Bunny Ahearne, president of the federation, was not available for comment. But it appeared mat a definitive move was being made to get the Canadians back into world hockey. There may have to be more compromises before it happens. The Canadians fell out of world championships and the Olympics because they wanted to mix professionals with their am ateurs. Avery Brundage, president of the International Olympic Committee, has said that he does not mind such a team competing against an amateur squad "If it is done for a worthy cause." Russians close in on title COLLINS HUNG UP ON FENCE-Detrott Tigers' third baseman Kevin Collins is left hanging on the fence behind third base in recent exhibition action. He got hung up chasing a pop foul. The fans were more interested in retrieving the ball than helping Collins who suffered a laceration on his left arm and tore his uniform. Penguins facing elimination Three seeking rookie honors GENEVA (AP) - The Soviet Union could clinch its ninth straight world hockey title today as the United States and West Germany take a breather before a desperate relegation battle. The unbeaten Russians should take care of Finland and if the off-form Swedes drop even one point to a revived Czechoslovak squad, then it's all over except for the victory ceremony. The Soviet Union has 11 points from six games and the only team which could catch the champs is Sweden, two points behind. But the Swedes were trounced 8-0 in their- first clash with the Russians in Bern Friday and Sunday night struggled hard to edge the U.S. 4-3. After a surprise opening win against Czechoslovakia, the U.S. has lost, sue in a row, including a disastrous defeat against lowly-rated West Germany Thursday. In the other weekend game, the Soviets beat the West Germans 12-2 Saturday, the Czechs blanked the U.S. 5-0 in their Saturday game, and Sunday the Finns trounced the Germans 7-2. By THE CANADIAN PRESS Gil Perreault of Buffalo and Jude Drouin of Minnesota continued their battle for rookie point-scoring honors, Philadelphia Flyers dashed the playoff hopes of Pittsburgh Penguins and Boston Bruins suffered their fourth consecutive loss since winning the National Hockey League's East Division title. These were some of the highlights Sunday as the regular NHL schedule approached its final weekend. With all playoff berths settled and the Boston team having a monopoly on most of the NHL records broken this season, one of the questions now remaining is whether Perreault, Drouin or even Detroit's Tom Webster will end up as the highest-scoring rookie in NHL history. Perreault picked up two assists Sunday as Buffalo Sabres defeated Minnesota North Stars 4-2. The two points gave him 67 for the season, tying him with Drouin who scored a goal in his team's loss. In other games, Philadelphia beat Pittsburgh 3-1 to clinch final playoff spot in the West Division, New York Rangers edged the Bruins 2-1, Montreal Canadiens defeated Chicago Black Hawks 2-1, Vancouver Canucks swamped California Golden Seals 11-5 and Detroit Red Wings nipped Toronto Maple Leafs 2-1. The Rangers downed the Bruins 6-3 Saturday, Montreal walloped Detroit 9-2, St. Louis Blues downed Los Angeles Kings 6-3 and Chicago beat Philadelphia 3-1. Drouin broke the record for most points scored by a rookie when he collected his 66th Thursday in Minnesota's 2-2 tie with Philadelphia. The former record of 65 was set by Danny Sunday night against Minnesota gave him 67 points, tying him with Drouin. These two players are one point ahead of Webster of Detroit. Donnie Marshall, Phil Goy-ette, Sieve Atkinson and Eddie Shack scored the Buffalo goals Saints take over throne American girl tops ALTA LAKE, B.C. (CP) - It was snowing heavily, visibility on Whistler Mountain measured only a few yards and the pressure was on 21-year-old Karen Budge of Jackson, Wyo. She responded to the challenge Sunday to edge a Canadian girl and capture the title of North American women's ski champion. Judy Crawford, 19-year-old member of Canada's national A team, was in hot pursuit as the 10-event Can-Am series drew to a close. St. Basil's are the new reigning City Recreation Hockey League champions as they dethroned the defending champion Labor Club with a convincing 9-3 victory last night. The Saints picked up victories in the first, second and fourth games of a best of five final series losing only once in the play-off trail. They had eliminated the M and K Generals in four straight games to win their semi-final series. Jerry Heck was the big gun for the Saints who held commanding period leads of 4-1 and 7-1 with a hat-trick. In rounding out the Saints Pronounce Frazier fit PHILADELPHIA (AP) -Heavyweight champion Joe Frazier, rested and in apparently good health, was released from St. Luke's Hospital Saturday after a 12-day stay. His doctor pronounced him fit. Frazier, after a successful defence of his heavyweight boxing title, entered the hospital March 16 suffering from what his physician termed mental and physical fatigue and high blood pressure. Asked how he felt, Frazier said, "I'm looking, that's the important thing. The newspapers killed me. That's who buried me." He referred to news reports of rumors that he was seriously ill or dying as a result of his fight March 8 with former heavyweight champion Muhammad Ali. markers Brian Murkin, Brian Geddes, Richard Chollack, Bob Boswell, Dick Cusson and Garry Canadine all chipped in with a goal apiece. For the Labor Club Don Bru-chet, Bob Cook and Bob Young replied with a goal each. During the three periods of play the Saints took nine of the 12 minor penalties called and split the four majors. They were also assessed the only 10 minute misconduct called. Doug Harrold of the Saints was the bad man of the contest as he picked up 24 minutes in the sin bin coming from two minors, two majors and a 10 minute misconduct. For their fine efforts throughout the past season the Saints were awarded the Martins Pro Hardware trophy. while Gord Labosslera scored for Minnesota. Pittsburgh, the team with a mathematical chance to overtake Philadelphia in fourth place in the West Division, could only muster a goal from Rod Zaine. The Flyers meanwhile used two goals by Bobby Clarke and Jean-Guy Gendron's 20th of the season to stop the Penguins. A third-period goal by Glen Sather gave New York its victory over the Bruins. Rod Gilbert got the other New York goal white Phil Esposito scored his 69th of the season for the Bruins, who have not won a game since winning their division title March 20. The four-game losing streak was Boston's longest this season. ORR USED SPARINGLY Defenceman Bobby Orr was used sparingly during the game by Boston. He played six minutes and 55 seconds, only on power plays-about 25 minutes less than he normally plays. COME TO ANGLO DISTRIBUTORS GRAND OPENING NEW STORE - 426 6 St. S. 9:30 a.m. Thursday FREE GIFT - PRIZES Training camps nearing an end Orioles, Reds having their problems By THE ASSOCIATED PRESS Any resemblance between Baltimore Orioles and Cincinnati Reds of today and those of last October's World Series is purely coincidental. The Orioles' problems are strictly on the field, where they dropped their fifth in a row Sunday, losing to Atlanta Braves 4-3. Pitcher Pat Dobson, recently acquired, bore the brunt of the Braves' attack. He was tagged for 11 hits, including three tingles apiece by Mike Lum and Clete Boyer and a double and single by Ralph Garr. The Reds won their game, edging Pittsburgh Pirates 5-4 by scoring a run on three singles in the last of the ninth after Al Oliver's homer tied the score in the top of the inning. The already injury-riddled National League champs lost catcher Johnny Bench for a day or so with a bruised finger when he was struck by a pitch from Bob Moose. In addition to centre fielder Bob Tolan and shortstop Dave Conception, who are on the disabled list, the Reds announcad that pitcher Wayne Simpson and possibly left-hander Jim Mer-ritt, both with arm trouble, will remain in Florida for more work when training camp ends. St. Louis Cardinals' stars were in fine shape, though. Joe Torre belted three home runs and fireballing Bob Gibson hurled five scoreless innings in a 13-2 rout of Minnesota Twins. Boston Red Sox used homers by George Scott, Reggie Smith and Billy Conigliaro to beat Detroit Tigers 5-3. Twelfth-inning doubles by Do.*\n Clendenon and Ken Singleton accounted for three runs as New York Mets defeated New York Yankees 5-2. Mike Epstein homered and shortstop Toby Harrah started a triple play and two double plays as Washington Senators downed Kansas City Royals 4-2. Philadelphia Phillies ripped ace reliever Wilbur Wood for four runs in the ninth, including Bobby Pfeil's two-run double, and overtook Chicago White Sox 7-6. Cleveland's Sam McDowell was raked for 10 runs and 10 hits in four innings-including a three-run double by Ernie Banks-in a 154 romp for Chicago Cubs. Saturday, Montreal beat Baltimore 4-2, Minnesota downed Boston 5-2, Washington nipped New York Yankees 2-1, Chicago White Sox beat an all-star team 4-3, Philadelphia edged Cincinnati 4-3, Pitsburgh shut out Kansas City 1-0, Detroit outhit St. Louis 11-7, Milwaukee blanked Cleveland 9-0, Chicago Cubs defeated Tokyo Orions 7-6, Oakland downed San Diego 9-2, San Francisco stopped California 4-0, Los Angeles beat Houston 5-1 and New York Mets defeated Atlanta 5-4. WRESTLING TONIGHTI 8:30 P.M. EXHIBITION AUDITORIUM N.A. TITLE BOUT - THORNTON vs SWEETAN BLACK vi KROFFAT - BELAFONTE vs PIRIE Tremendous Bouts - $2, $1.50 WILDERNESS AREA At the regular monthly meeting of the Zone 1 Fish and Game Association held in Lethbridge om Sunday, March 21, Hon. Dr. J. Donovan Ross, Minister of Lands and Forests, gave us a rundown of the Wilderness Bill 67 that will be going before the house. It was very disturbing to the membership of Zone 1, to learn that the wilderness areas will not exceed 144 square miles. Also, there will be definitely no hunting, fishing or horse travel in these areas. It was felt that these areas are much too small, because with hunting pressure and accessibility adjacent to these areas, it will confine game animals to a small area therefore they will deplete the source ef food in a very short ime. From a biologist standpoint, we know that when an animal runs short of food and gets down in condition, it is more susceptible to disease, therefore we should have controlled hunting in these areas. We felt that the people of the province of Alberta ore looking for a Wilderness Area to be established for the enjoyment of recreation. We know that with the present rate of industry intrusion into the green area we are depleting areas producing habitat for game, birds and fish. It was felt that the use of horses in the said areas though not commercially would be art asset to the enjoyment of the people. If industry is not curtailed and is let to progress at the rate it has expanded In the last few years, there will be no areas left for future generations. It was strongly advised that all interested persons write to their local M.L.A. to have the following amendments to Bill 671 1. Deletion of sections specifically prohibiting fishing, hunting and trapping. Leave these management decisions to qualified wildlife officials! 2. Inclusion of the Willmore Wilderness Park as No. 4 under "Provisional Wilderness Areas" in bill 67. 3. Deletion of any reference to maximum size. Let each area be judged on its own meritl 4. Horse travel should be allowed without the commercialization of such. ZONE 1 ALBERTA FISH AND GAME ASSN., P.O. BOX 266, CHAMPION ;
