Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - May 10, 1973, Lethbridge, Alberta 8 _ THI lETHBRIDOl HMAID Thursdoy, May 10, 1973 Like airport security., defences must tighten Will the unexpected happen tonight? CHICAGO (CP) Nothing seems to be going according to form in the current Stanley Cup final playoff and the return of the Cup itself to Chicago Wednesday night was no ex- ception. The famed mug, emblematic of National Hockey League su- premacy since 1923, made its first-ever air crossing of an in- ternational boundary Wednes- day but security precautions broke the Montreal and Chicago defences in the fifth game of the current series. Chicago Black Hawks won that fifth game 8-7, crushing earlier predictions for a goal- tenders' series and forcing the best-of-seven series to move back here for a sixth game tonight. The Cup was brought from Montreal by air, ready for Terriers lead series Vaughan responded ORTLLIA, Ont. (CP) Two- day treatment on a pinched nerve appeared to be all Carrie Vaughan needed as he scored two goals and assisted on an- other to help Orillia Terriers down St. Boniface Mohawks 8-5 Wednesday in the Allan Cup senior hockey final. The win gave Orillia a 2-1 lead in the best-of-seven series, with the next game Friday. All games will be played here. Vaughan was a doubtful starter. Checked hard in the second game, he pinched a nerve in his neck. Since the in- jury Sunday he has been receiv- ing treatment. Orillia outshot St. Boniface 62- 36 in the game, and 30-11 in the final period when the Terriers scored four goals for their come-from-behind win. The Terriers came from be- hind five times in the game. St. Boniface led 3-2 after 20 min- utes and 5-4 after five seconds of the final period. Orillia playing coach Doug Kelcher started pickup goalten- der Ernie Miller because he felt regular netminder Jean-Louis Levasseur "had been playing too much hockey." Levasseur played in the 21 games that the Terriers re- quired to earn the right to enter the national final. Miller played for Barrie Flyers of the Ontario Hockey Association Senior A series and finished with the league's best goal-against aver- age. Other Orillia scorers were Ron Clarke, Jim Keen, Claire Alexander, Jim O'Brien, Grant Moore and Gary Milroy. Larry Bazyo and George Wat- son scored two goals each for St. Boniface. Mike MacKenzie got one. St. Boniface played the game without regulars Wayne Wiste and Ron Hopkinson. Both had to return home because of work commitments but will be back for Friday's game. St. Boniface captain Gary Kwasnitza said his team mem- bers were tired of sitting around the hotel during the days. "Some of the players said this morning they would rather go to work than hang around and think about golfing and fish- ing."

QUINELLA: Flames, Sleepers easy winners Victories came easy for a pair of clubs in the Commercial Men's Slow Pitch League Wed- neaday night. In one contest, the Leth- bridge Gas Company Flames walked all over the Silverwood Dairies Dixies 31-8 while in an- other Western Truck and Body Sleepers whalloped D u c a n Drifters 36-10. George Schlaaie earned the mound win over Ken Holber- ton in the Flames-Dixies match while Doug Irvine and Willy Brees combined forces to give the Sleepers their decision over the Drifters. Lorral Zobn suffered the loss. What about the future? Medicor still shaky VANCOUVER (CP) The auditors of Medicor, the Min- neapolis-based company that controls the Vancouver Canucks of the National Hockey League, still have doubts about the U.S. company being able to continue as a going concern. Medicor management, how- ever, disagrees, and speaks of earnings in 1973 and subsequent years. Documents in Medicor's an- nual report, filed with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Com- mission, also show that if Medi- cor tries to sell its 60-per-cent interest in the company con- trolling the Canucks, it must give club director Coley Hall and two other Vancouver men seven days in which to match any cash offer. And if Mediccr defaults on the million it now owes the Bank of British Columbia. Hall and his group can pay off the loan and get Medicor's in- terest in the hockey club and in four other companies. Auditors Haskins and Sells give several reasons for what they describe as significant un- certainties concerning the abil- ity of Medicor and its wholly- owned subsidiaries to continue operations on a going-concern basis. These include a working cap- ital deficiency of million at Dec. 31, 1972. This figure com- pares with a deficiency of about million at the end of 1971 and million at the end of 1970.

They refer to a number of legal actions, including charges laid in B.C. against two of Medi- cor's officers. Since the auditor's report, Lyman Walters, Medicor vice- president, has been found not jiirilty of a false prospectus charge laid against him. Medicor president Tom Scal- len is appealing his conviction on charges of stealing mil- lion and of issuing a fal.ce pros- pectus. He was sentenced to four years in jail but was released pending the appeal, expected to be heard in late fall. The Medicor management, however, says in the report that it believes the million loan from the Bank of B.C. vail be renewed when due Nov. 30 and that earnings of the company for 1573 and subsequent years and arrangements for addition- al short-term borrowing will permit continuation of all the company's operations. presentation to the Canadiens should they clinch the series. The Cup has made the trif numerous times by road aw train, but Maurice (Lefty) Reid curator of the Hockey Hall of Fame in Toronto, said this i the first time to his knowledgi it had been flown across an in ternational border. But despite security arrange meats to hustle the priceless sil ver trophy through customs here, official business in th crowded customs hall all bu ceased as agents hurried to remote area of the termina building to get a glimpse of th oldest trophy competed for b professional athletes in North America. Keid, whose custom it has been t o ferry the trophy be- tween Montreal and Chicago b car during the current fina series, was accompanied by Ir win Blehm of Toronto, th NHL's assistant security direc tor when he flew the champion ship trophy here. "We'd list it under TIB which means temporary impor said Bob Fitzgerald one of two airport securit guards who kept vigil on th trophy from the moment it lef the cargo hold of the Air Can ada DC-9 until it was turne over to Dave Will, a Chicago in vestigator. "What it means is that the article will be take back out in a few days." LIKE ART OBJECT Fitzgerald said that since most of the air terminal em ployees are Black Hawk fans they're hoping for a sevent game, which would be back i Montreal Sunday. "You know, something lik this has intrinsic h said. "How can you put a price o something with such sentimen tal value? We treat the Stanle Cup like other objects of art- ore of a kind." Will, who heads up NHL se- curity in Chicago, now share the responsibility of keeping watchful eye en the Cup penc ing the outcome of tonight' game. The Hawks, meanwhile, re- turned to the stadium foiloy-H their win at Montreal Tuesda; night, a game in which deiencs.' of both clubs seemed to b? ou to lunch for almost 60 minutes.

Four Alberta teams will par- ticipate in the two-day event which opens Saturday and closes Sunday at the Adams !ce Centre. Teams taking part in the second annual affair include ;he Calgary Shamrocks, Nanton laiders, Taber Ebony Hawks and the host Lethbridge Native Sons. Last season only two teams ought for the Challenge Cup and the Native Sons were vic- orious as a result of a 16-14 wo-game total goal series against Assinboia, Saskatche- van who won't be back this time around.

But these sophisticated Of- ferihauser engines have been re- fined in the laboratory of auto racing. Herb Porter, an engineering consultant for Goodyear Tire and Rubber Co., says the Offy engine is the most powerful, inch-for-inch, in history. Porter conducts the company's tire and engine testing on a fulltime basis. But Porter, sometimes re- ferred to ss the father of the modern Offenhauser engine, notes the basic engine is rot all that powerful. POWER JUMPS In a race car, the four-cylinder, 160-cubic-inch en- gine cjuld only manage about 125 miles an hour, Porter said. Horsepower would be near 200. But throw on a supercharger and a fuel injection system, and instantly you have about 800 horsepower and the potential to register a 200-mile-an-hour lap, he said. Swede Savage, running with one of Porter's engines, has turned in a 197.S02 lap, the fsst- ed, so far this month at the In- dianapolis Motor Speedway. Savage recorded a 192.5 lap in practice Wednesday for the May 28 race. "We get about five horse- power per cubic Porter said. "If you got that kind of horsepower out of your average passenger car with a 327 cubic inch engine, you would have about horsepower. We get more horsepower par cubic inch now than any other car in the history of the world. COULD GET MORE "While we could still get a lot more power, it would be a less reliable engine. More power is available for this year's race than last year's with a greater degree of reliability." Winning at Indianapolis, he said, depends on the com- bination of "the power you can get, the power you can use and stay together'" and the ability to complete the race on the amount of fuel allotted. Twenty years ago, Porter would not have believed 200 mile-an-hour speeds possible at Indy. But testing and tach- nology, he noted, have come a long way since he started build- ing cars here in 1946. The original Offy, he said, has undergone four major de- sign changes. Superchargers and t'jrbochargers have been added and rcfinsd. NATIONAL LEAGUE East Division W L Pet.
