Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - March 30, 1974, Lethbridge, Alberta Saturday, March E LCTHMIDOE HCBALO-27 Lethbridge minor baseball decides to change its name Increasing financial pressures have forced the Lethbridge Minor Baseball Association to change its name to the Lethbridge Little League Baseball Association as of this season. The change in name was necessary in order to restrict sponsorship to little league baseball teams only. Under the new title the LLLBA divorces itself of support to any local team who will be playing ball under the jurisdiction of the Alberta Baseball Association. As mentioned before, finances proved to be the key to the name change and it is the LLLBA's intent to have enough funds available to support a league for over-aged little leaguers as soon as surrounding districts expand their amateur baseball programs. The new league in mind will be called the Big League and will be for players between the ages of 15-19. Meanwhile the new LLLBA will in all probability operate on a two league system again this season. The two leagues, Norcrest and Lakeside, will again offer baseball at three levels and pending registration, it is likely that the total operation will involve some 50 teams. The three levels of competition will include the Farm Leagues (ages Little League (ages 9-12) and Senior Little League (ages 13- Expectations are that the 9th avenue south boundary line will remain which seems to be the border line that provides an equal balance in population within the two systems. Registration for all Little League players has been set for Apr 1-4 between the hours of six o'clock and nine o'clock. Members of the Lakeside League will register at the Lakeview School while Norcrest players will sign in at the Wilson Junior High School. All Little League players will be charged a registration fee while Senior Little League players will be charged Meanwhile with weather permitting, mass practices will be held at the Lakeview School and Senator Buchanan School from Apr 8-10 for all Little League players while Senior Little League players will practice at the Dave Elton Park on the same dates. Should poor weather set in, the practices will be postponed until Apr. 22-24. This season league play will commence around May 6 and will conclude near the end of June. Watch for NOOK Here Soon!

GiUespie Girls allowed to join boys' teams Crossword COLLECTORS AND OBSERVERS By Marjorie Brown TRENTON, N.J. (AP) A New Jersey appeals court Friday upheld a ruling that Little League baseball must let girls take the field with boys. A Little League spokesman said the organization had not yet decided whether to appeal the 2-to-l ruling. The 2-to-l decision by the appellate division of Superior Court followed a simlar decision by Judge George B. Gelman of Hackensack in the case of Frances Pescatore, 11. She applied Feb. 2 to play in the nearby Ridgefield league. Gelman said the Ridgefield Boys Athletic Association was setting a bad example by changing its name to include boys in the title and by threatening to close down rather than let girls play. A general directive by the state division of civil rights ordered the group two months ago to allow participation by girls. It was that directive the appellate division upheld Friday. The two appeals court judges voting for the girls ruled that the little league is a "public accommodation" within the meaning of state laws against discrimination.

The first girl was Maria Pepe, who was refused admission to the Hokoken Little League in 1972. At 14, she now is too old to play in the league. Friday's decision said: "The record evidences the fact that substantial numbers of young girls want to partake in baseball and are qualified to do so competitively with boys of the same age." Judge Curtis Meaner said in dissent that he believed the issue did not involve sex discrimination and added: "There is a virtual confession in this court record that from puberty females cannot compete successfully with males in this contact sport." Referring to amendments in the state civil rights act, Meaner said: "I doubt that sexual integration of athletic competition was considered at the time of enactment of the amendments which dealt with sex Midget Elks can wrap up series The Lethbridge Midget Elks will host the Vulcan Blazers for the second and possibly final game of the 1973-74 Southern Alberta Juvenile Hockey League championship playoff series Sunday night The defending champion Elks can wrap up the best of three final series as they hold a one-game edge going into Sunday's p.m. encounter slated for the Henderson Lake Ice Centre.
