All four are members Past Year A Big One For Locals of the Lelhbridge YMCA Judo Club and are working out in preparation for the Canadian judo championships in Vancouver this weekend. The four, along with Ken Tamura will take part in the national finals. YMCA Judo Club, A Success Story By PAT SULLIVAN Herald Sports Writer According to the Oxford dic- tionary, success is accomplish ment of end aimed at, attain- ment of wealth, or fame or po- sition. This, being the case, Hie Lethbridge YMCA Judo Club can be termed a success1. While short on wealth, the lo- cals abound in fame and posi- tion. Instructor Yosh Senda has seen to that. The Lethbridge Judo Club is not new to the local sports scene. It has been an important part of the community for a number oE years, but not until the past couple of years has the local group received the recog- nition it deserved. Senda and his club spent many seasons in the old YMCA building, but when the move to the new facilities came about so did recognition. As a group, the dub reached the pinnacle of recognition in 1969 when it was selected to host the Canadian champion- ships. Four members of the L e t h- bridge Club took part in the championships and Senda was well pleased with their per- formances. While none of them won in their respective divi- sions, all four, Phil niingworth, Ron Senda, Dave Potter and Guy Sunada, reached the quar- ter-finals before being beaten. The Letibridge club first com- peted this season in the Calgary Hiro's Judo Club Invitational meet and took five firsts, four seconds and a third. Michael Calder won the 100 pound and under class and teammate Brad Harper was third. In the under 126 pounds, Tom Greemvay won out over teammate Greig Wheeler. Greg Sunada defeated team- mate Terry Tanaka in the under 139 pound division and Lyle Miller, under 175 pounds. picked up a second place fin- ish. The junior team of Lyal Sak- amoto, Eugene Nakahama. Kevin Kanashiro, Green way and Wheeler won the title as did their senior counterparts Greg Senda, Ron Senda, llling- worth, Miller and Tanaka. At Parent's Night, some 200 people turned out and the young judokas displayed their excellent progress. Promotions and awards were announced at the special evening and it proved to be a big night for Murray Pritchard as he was awarded the Epic and Span Proficiency Award for the most outstanding junior judoka for 1969. The locals completely domin- ated their own invitational tour- nament, recording seven firsts and six seconds. David Potter was named grand champion of the meet. Potter won the heavy- weight division over Phil Illing worth in black belt competi tion. Dale Aasen won the light weight title over Ron Senda. First place finishes were turned in by Bart Greemvay Michael Calder, Greig Wheeler and Greg Senda. Second place performances were turned in by Ross Matheson, Scott Tan- ner, Terry Tanaka and Lyle Miller. Competing in the senior featherweight class in Vancou ver Greg Senda was the victoi while Guy Sunada won his sec- tion in the black belt feather- weight division. Both classes are for competitors weighing less than 139 pounds. A week later Sunada came up with a second place finish in the featherweight section at thp Western Canada Intercollegiate Athletic Associa tion finals, hosted by the University of Lethbridge.

Among them was a limping Ben Hogan, a rive-trme winner of this event and playing tn his home for the first time in three years. The 57-year-old master birdied the 16th and 17th for a 69, well among the lead- ers. George Kmidson of Toronto, the only Canadian in the tourna- ment, shot a 73. Trevino and Player held a one-stroke lead over a group of 'ive at Beard, R. H. Sikes, Johnny Pott, Gay Brewer and Bob Smith.

Tilings Aren't Working Out Slow Start For Expos MONTREAL (CP) The first four weeks of Ihe 1970 Na- tional League baseball season have been exasperating for Montreal Expos. Going into tonight's game in Pittsburgh against the Pirates, Montral has a 10-20 won-lost record and is in last place in the six-team Eastern Division. Before the year began, Expos manager Gene Mauch felt his club would be able to win 70 games this season. Mauch said improved pitching and fielding would be the big factor in the improvement over Mont real's 52-110 won lost ledger in their first year in the majors. While the fielding has im- proved, the pitching remains in- consistent and some of the Expos' hitting stars have run into problems. Rightfielder Rusty Staub is the only Montrealer hitting over .300. Staub has a .317 baiting average with three home runs and 19 runs batted in. First basman Ron Fairly has a .263 average followed by Marv Staehle with .256 and Jim Fairey at .255. The big disappointments at the plate have been Mack Jones, currently hitting .214, and Jose (Coco) Laboy with a .122 average. Last season Jones hit .270 and Laboy was 258 at the plate. We've had very little hit- Jim Fanning, Montreal gneral manager said recently. "We left a lot of men stranded on base and when you dcn't score runs, you put extra pres- sure on your pitching staff. "Laboy, Jones and Fairly have had poor starts, but I think they'll come out of it. 'We need help In pitching. We suffered a severe blow at the beginning of the season when we lost Jim Britton and Mike Wegener. Joe Spat-ma, Steve Renko and Bill Stoneman have n inconsistent and it ha; hurt us." Fanning said he is pleased and slightly surprised, with the excellent pitching of righthand er Carl Morton. Morton has posted a 3-1 rec ord and has an earned run aver age of 3.28. Morton and relieve Claude Raymond are the only Expos with ERA'S below 5.00. Raymond is 2-1 with an earned run average of 2.70. Can the Expos win 70 games in 1970? With 1C already under their belts, they have 132 games to accomplish the objective. Top Club Takes Two-Point Lead B and R Men's Wear took over sole possession of first place in tlie Country Club Golf League Thursday night.
