OUINELLAi Sign Agreement With The Bruins SALT LAKE CITY (AP) The Salt Lake Golden Eagles, a distant last in the Western Hockey League this season, Monday signed a working agreement with the National Hockey League's new Stanley Cup champions, the Boston Bruins. Boston will make available to Salt Lake up to 10 players and it is expected that the Eagles will have the 'opportun- ity to use some of Boston's top draft choices. The agreement also calls for Boston to make players avail- able to the Eagles under emer- gency conditions. Coach-general manager Ray Kinasewich said such an agree- ment would solve "the acute manpower problem we had this year when the club was crip- pled by injuries early in the season." This season was the first in the WHL for the Golden Eagles. Boston Bruins Looking To The Future Could This Be A Start Of A Dynasty? Louis Blues, was, what do you do for an encore? Coach Harry Sindcn, 35, who piloted the Bruins to hockey's most coveted troohy in just his third National Hockey League season, plans a few days of re- laxation, before looking for the future. However, he isn't Loo worried. "This team has the ingredi- ents all champions Sin- den said. "We have the super- stars, such as Bobby Orr, that are so necessary. We also have plenty of other talent, youth, size, good goaltending and good defence. "There's no reason this team can't continue. Things may be a little tougher next year as every- one wants a solid crack at the champs, but I think we'll be ready for all challenges." The Bruins, smiling with a champagne sparkle after a long evening of revelry, were given an official city salute Monday. More than fans lined the streets for a two mile motor- cade to City Hall Plaza. The Bruins were amazed by both the turnout and the enthu- Even though the Giants are confident that the championship trophy will be back with them at ths end of the year, there are seven other clubs that may give the Giants all they can handle and Milk River is one of Uiese ;lubs. Playing coach Gordon Ba- log is not too optimistic of his club's chances in the early go- ing but feels that after the early part of June Milk River will b'e tough to beat. Balog will have ace lefthand- er Ron Stevens back in the fold and also mentioned that college players from the United Slates will join the club early in June. "We'll be in a little bit of trou- ble until stated Balog, "but after that we should come along fine." Balog mentioned that the team has had to bring in play- ers from the United States be- cause of lack of interest in Milk River. "We should have a better team than last added Balog. "We had too many kids who played ball for the first time last year so this year they should have the experience." John Charlton of the Brooks Lions feels that his club should finish in third or fourth spot. "I don't think we'll be a con- tender far first said "but if everything works out okay we should fin- ish in third or fourth." SAMS CLUB Brooks mil have almost the same lineup as last year's club, a team which finished in third place in the standings. Dick Wiest of Enchant says his club has not made many changes from last year. "We're .having trouble- getting outside said Wiest, "but I think we'll be all right." Enchant finished fifth last year but Wiest added that his Red Sox are shooting for a high- er place in the standings. Other clubs in the league are the Lethbridge Crighton Cubs, Lcthbridge Junior Miners, Ta- ber and Pincher.Creek. Taber and Pincher Crack are new additions to the league this year, replacing the Lethbridge Flyers and the Lethbridge Alex- andra Monarchs, both of which have folded operations. The league opens Wednesday night at eight o'clock at Hen- derson Park with the two Leth- bridge teams doing battle. A full slate of four double- headers are on tap for Sunday with Pincher Creek visiting the Cubs at Henderson Park with game times set for and seven o'clock. Lethbridge Miners will travel to Milk River' tor a twin-bill, Brooks faces Taber in a pair of games at Coaldale, and Vulcan meets Enchant twice in En- chant. Game times in Milk River, Coaldale and Enchant are set for two o'clock and five o'clock. MOBILE HOMES AT TRAILER CITY The Answer To The Housing. Problem !n Lethbridge!

PHONE 327-2805 SULLY SAYS 1 jsg m I -By Pat SijjllivanJI THE SPORTS spotlight will focus brightly on Taber this coming weekend, and so it should. Saturday evening marks the Taber Building Fund Celebrity and Sweepstakes Dinner, and from here it looks "like a night one will remember. The major reason for staging the dinner is the need for a new Civic Centre for Taber. You see, a year ago this past New Year's Eve, it was a hot time in the old town of Taber. Their Civic Centre, which had facilities for a skating rink, curling rink, basketball court, dance hall and many other activities, burned to the ground. Now, if you know anything about Taberites you will know that without a Civic Centre they would be like the early Romans without their Coli- seum. The entire community of Taber and surround- ing areas made the Civic Centre their second home. Saturday will be just one of many functions the ambitious people of Taber have staged to raise money for their new home-away-from-home, but it should prove to be the most entertaining. Gathered under one roof Saturday will not only be some of the top athletes in' Canada, but one of the funniest night club comedians in show business today in -the person of Morey Amsterdam. And for. those' who feel like girl-watching is an important segment of everyday life, Miss Canada 1970 will be .there. From the sports angle, one couldn't ask" for more variety at one dinner. If curling is your fancy Hec Gervais of Edmonton, and former Cana- dian and World champion, will be on hand while from the world of professional football Frank An- druski, wearing the Calgary Stampede colors, is also a guest. Nancy Greene Raine, Canada's finest female skier of the past decade, is slated to make an appearance and will also hold a ski clinic. Al Balding, one of the few Canadians on the pro- fessional golf tour will be on hand and will conduct a golf clinic Saturday afternoon. With the Stanley Cup final having ended Sunday Rod Gilbert of the New York Rangers should prove to be a popular head table guest. It was the Rangers, with Gilbert leading the way, who handed the Boston Bruins their only losses on their way to the championship. Add to these guests, the name of Red Storey, and what more could you ask for? Storey was a former football great and up until his time of departure from National Hockey League, was the referee-in-chief. If that list isn't enough to suit your; you can sit and listen to the Honorable H. A. (Bud) Olson, Federal- Minister of Agriculture, Premier Harry Strom of Alberta and Ray Speaker, Minister of Social Development. The Building Committee, headed by Pat Shim- baslii, is asking a plate for Saturday's affair. The tickets, besides allowing the person admittance to the dinner, could be worth a great deal of money as some worth of prizes will be given away. Shimbashi, points out that the tickets can be purchased on a time payment basis. If one ticket is purchased, a deposit is necessary along with three post-dated cheques for each. For two tickets the deposit is the same while the post-dated cheques, numbering four, should be made out for The dinner committee also points out it will take grain in trade for tickets. Shimbashi and Ms group have worked extremely hard to make this dinner a rousing success. Their cause, I'm sure you'll agree, is a fine one. All they need now is the support of Southern Alberta sports fans. 1 don't know how many of you are aware of it but did you know that Stan Dunn, currently the coach of the Weyburn Red Wings, is a former Lethbridge Native Son? He played one season with the locals in 1948-49. I also see Earl Ingarfield has returned to his old stomping grounds for another relaxing summer. Injuries hampered the popular Lethbridge prod- uct in his second season with Oakland Seals, but he still managed to better the 20-goal mark, a sure incli-' cation he will be returning to the hockey wars for at least another year or two. 1 wouldn't be honest with myself if I didn't make a quick statement about the finish of the Stanley Cup. The ending couldn't have been more fitting had the script been written. Bobby Orr deserved the winning goal as a finish to a truly great season, but how did you like that dressing room show with excit- ing Ward Cornell? Didn't that just thrill you? The guy didn't even have enough sense to even ask for Orr to make an appearance. At the conclusion of the World Series and the Super Bowl wo had a chance to listen to the star of the show, but not with the Stanley Cup. 11 leaves a little to be desired don't you think? Important Vote Goes Tonight AMSTERDAM (CP) The international Olympic. Commit- .ee -votes tonight on the site for he 1976 Winter Olympics, with :he four cities bidding for it still n doubt about what sports will je included. The four cities are Vancouver, Tampere, Finland; Sion, Switz- erland, amd Denver, Colo. The IOC also will vote tonight on whether the Summer Olym- pics will be staged. Montreal, jos Angeles and Moscow are applying for the Slimmer "amss. Avery Brundage of Chicago, 83-year-old IOC president, has told the international sports fed- erations that because of com- mercialism certain listed hockey, football, basket- Dall and Alpine as- withdrawn from the Games. "We will be sorry to have ihem go but they are the vic- tims of the materialistic times in which we he said. "The public will no longer support hy- pocrisy." PLAN TO GO AHEAD Cities trying for the ..Winter Games have taken the view that it would be a tragedy if Alpine skiing and hockey were ex- cluded, but delegates from each city have said they still will go ahead with their bids. The vote on the site for the 1976 Olympics will be taken even before the question of Hie Winter Olympic program is re- solved. The same informant said West Germany supports the Garibaldi bid. But at this point it's all speculation. The IOC starts voting on the summer site first. The vote on the Wirier Games could spill over'into Wednesday. If Montreal or Los Angeles should get the Summer Games, British Columbia probably would be out, since the IOC is unlikely vo both sets to the same continent. Sid Young, vice-president of the Garibaldi Organizing Com- mittee, said: 'I went in feeling very confi- dent and I am still confident. We were very well received and I hope we made the right im- pressions." Mayor Tom Campbell of Van- couver made the presentation Monday before the IOC for Gar- baldi, a resort area 40 miles north of Vancouver, and said he ;ot a good reception. The Garibaldi setup north of Vancouver is given a good chance of picking off the James, among informed opin- on here. Mayor Jean Drapeau of Mon- real also continued to show confidence following his presen- tation to the 73-member com- mittee for the Summer Games made Sunday. "We feel the Mon- real mayor said. "We're ex- >ecting support from five conti- lents and I'm as confident as Lions Ink Linebackers VANCOUVER (CP) Brit- ish Columbia Lions of the West- ern Football Conference Mon- day announced the signing of two import linebackers.

Sinden, who admitted he had the most wonderful headache tried to cool his charges. 'Don't haven't won anything next Sin- den said. Siiiueii and general manager Milt Schmidt, who played on Boston's 1941 Stanley Cup win- ner, plan to sit down soon to map plans for the NHL draft next month. Sinden also has an early ap- pointment with Bruins Presi- dent Weston Adams Jr. to talk money. Sinden's contract. ex- pired during the playoffs. The Bruins will be able to protect only 14 skaters and two goalies in the expansion draft to fill new teams in Buffalo and Vancouver. They .figure to lose a couple of solid players. Jtay- ever, Boston has some fine young talent in the farm system and owns high draft choices in the junior ranks. Schmidt, a master in the trade market, probably will work at least one deal before the draft. Other clubs had bet- ter be careful in dealing with the Hall of Famer, however. TRADE A SWINDLE Schmidt which got pulled a swindle the Bruins rolling when he acquired Phil Esposito, Ken Hodge and Fred Stanfield from the Black Hawks three years ago. Orr, of course, Is the key to the Bruins' future. Although only 22, he is recognized as one of the all-time greats in NHL history. He is without -a peer as a high-scoring defenceman. Orr became the first player in NHL history to capture four major awards in a. season as the league's board of governors voted him the Conn Smythe Tro- phy Monday as the most valua- ble player in the playoffs.
