Lethbridge Herald (Newspaper) - May 18, 1971, Lethbridge, Alberta 10 - THE lETHBRIDOfr-HERAlO - Tutiday, May II, 1971 Stanley Cup on the line tonight Black Hawks favored in big one CHICAGO (CP) - Chicago Black Hawks traded in their hockey sticks for golf clubs Monday, but they will return to their familiar tools tonight for the deciding game in the Stanley Cup final. Coach Billy Reay and many of the Hawks had previously been committed to play golf in a sports celebrities tournament honoring Jack Quinlan, former Chicago baseball broadcaster killed in an auto accident during baseball's spring training five years ago. But today the Hawks have a team meeting set for noon, a light skate by some of the players-especially those who have seen limited playoff action-then the grand finale. The seventh game against Montreal Canadiens set for Chicago Stadium at 5:30 p.m. MST will bring the curtain down on the longest-ever National Hockey League season. The Canadiens forced a decid- JACK NICKLAUS - The blond bomber is setting the money pace along pro golf's gold tour. Nicklaus continues to lead way NEW YORK (AP) - Although he chose to skip last week end's Houston champions international tournament, Jack Nicklaus continues to head both the money and point standings on the pro golf tour. The latest figures released Monday by the Professional Golfers Association Tournament Players Division showed .Nicklaus No. 1 in the money winning parade with $131,788. Arnold Palmer is the only other player above $100,000, placing second with $106,796. In the exemption point standings, based on tournament performances, Nicklaus leads with 130,607.5. Gary Player is second with 94,144.3. Hubert Green, winner of the Houston tournament, moved into ninth place with 58,704.6 points. The top 10 money winners: 1. Jack Nicklaus $131,788; 2. Arnold Palmer $106,796; 3. Miller Barber $99,037; 4. Gary Player $94,775; 5. Tom Shaw $81,845 ; 6. Lee Trevino $78,835 ; 7. Frank Beard $72,658; 8. George Archer $69,779 ; 9. Billy Casper $64,820; 10. J. C. Snead $64,465. Fastballers mil launch new season The Lethbridge Senior Men's Fastball Association, which last year operated under the name of the Commercial League, will launch the new season tonight at Dave Elton Park at seven o'clock. NuMode Homes will face Dallas Hotel Cowboys in the opening game with the Labor Club and M and K Generals clashing in the second contest at 8:30. The other club in the league are the Contractors. M and K Generals are the defending champions, finishing in first place and then winning out in the playoffs. Dallas Cowboys won the Alberta senior B title last season, playing in the local league on an exhibition basis. don pilling ^EE Stanley Cup final boils down to one game, swift and sudden-like, tonight in Chicago, and although I really couldn't have cared less at the outset which collection of ice gladiators snaffled up the silverware, I now find myself leaning towards the Canadiens-and all because of the very vocal one, Henri Richard. Richard, as we all know, I'm sure, was benched by coach Al MacNeil last Thursday and he promptly unlocked the verbal flood gates by labelling Mac-Neil, among other tilings, the worst coach who ever walked, crawled or ran out a dressing room door. Truth of the matter, strictly as I see it, mind you, is that Maurice's little brother has been a flop in the session with the Black Hawks and, by benching him, MacNeil did what any coach worth his salt would do when one of his fancy-dans was not producing. It's rather difficult to buy MacNeil as an "incompetent coach" in view of the fact he brought the Habs from practically out of nowhere to the Stanley Cup final, out-coaching even Tom Johnson of the not-so-mighty Bruins in the opening round of all this fuss and furore known as the Stanley Cup marathon. As one wag put it, if Richard felt this way about MacNeil he should have buttoned his lip until the season was over. He can pick his own wallet, if he wants, but why should he lift money from his teammates' trousers? From where I sit, Richard has an idea he's some sort of a saint who should be on the ice whether he's delivering the goods or not. ? ? ? It should be common knowledge by now that MacNeil was only an interim coach in the first place, and if he wins the Stanley Cup it won't save him. The whole hockey world knows now that he has some prima donnas who take a dim view of discipline, and if he guides them to a championship he should be awarded a special medal. Win, lose or draw, he'd probably be better off without the job. And what about this business of determining a hockey champion on May 18? The next thing we know professional hockey will celebrate Canada's birthday by playing an all-star game on July 1. * ? ?

No one is prepared to concede a home-ice advantage, but that's the way the series has gone to date. Chicago won the first two games here, Montreal took two at home, and in the two other games the clubs have each taken home-ice wins. With the seventh and last game here, the oddsmakers have made the West-Division champion Hawks favorites by about 8 to 5. NHL interest is booming in the United States during the current Montreal-Chicago final and CBS television network, which previously had confined its league coverage to Sunday afternoons, will be carrying tonight's game nationally in the U.S. In addition, transmissions to independent stations in Boston, Philadelphia, St. Louis and the Minneapolis-St. Paul' areas have been confirmed with the possibility that one or two other sta tions will join the hookup. "It's fantastic the number of telephone calls we had after Sunday's game to carry the sev enth game nationally in the U.S.," an NHL spokesman said Monday. CANADIENS ARRIVE The Canadiens flew into Chi cago late Monday afternoon after a light skate at the Forum earlier in the day. The team booked into its usual haunt for the playoffs, a motel near O'Hare International' Airport. More than 3,000 greeted the Chicago team's chartered flight on its arrival here Sunday night. Centre Stan Mikita summed up the players' feelings Monday with assurances there was no way the puck would bounce in favor of the Canadiens tonight as it did in Montreal Sunday. "A couple of bad hops (in the third period) beat us. . . . But we can't be worrying about that in the seventh game. If we play the same game in the Stadium, we'll win." Mikita was referring to bounces that set up the tying and winning goals by the Ma-hovlich brothers, Frank and Peter respectively. Defenceman Bill White was victimized on Frank Mahov-lich's goal that gave the Big M a record 14 in the playoffs. The Hawk blueliner was unable to control a bouncing puck in Chicago territory and Mahovlich swept it up for a shot at goalie Tony Esposito. The Chicago netmlnder stopped the first shot, but Mahovlich corralled the loose puck to the side of the net and nudged it in. Burning Rectal Itch Relieved In Minutes This Special Hemorrhoid Remedy Contains A Unique Healing Substance That Relieves Pain As It Shrinks Hemorrhoids One of the most common afflictions is a condition known aa "Itchinp Pile*." It is most embarrassing for the sufferer during the day and especially aggravating at night. If you want satisfactory relief-here's good new*. A renowned research laboratory has found a unique healing substance with the ability to promptly relieve the burning itch and pain. It actually shrinks hemorrhoids. This substance has been shown to produce a most effective rate of healing. Its germ-killing properties also help prevent infection. In one hemorrhoid case after another "very striking improvement" was reported. This improvement was maintained in cases where clinical observations were continued over a period of many months. Furthermore, these tests and observations were made on patients with a wide variety of hemorrhoidal conditions. All this was accomplished by a healing substance (Bio-Dyne)-developed by a world-renowned research institution. This substance is now obtainable in ointment or suppository form known as Preparation H.

Noble, at an inquest into the death of a 16-year-old hockey player, said government bodies appear indifferent to safety in sports equipment. Dr. Noble was inquiring Monday into the death of Claudio Romanin, who died after being struck on the exposed left temple by a flying puck during a pre-game warmup April 12. He was wearing a plastic helmet. The coroner said the Canadian Amateur Hockey Association was making progress in research into safety equipment "until political interests took over the hockey situation and all interest in safety seems to have vanished."

"Yep, I just watched the ball from the batter's box after I hit it," said Garr, who is nicknamed Roadrunnerforhis blinding speed "I knew it was out of the park-but I was afraid it might go foul." The reason for the freeze, Garr said, was that he wanted to conserve his energy-in case the ball was foul "and I would need all mv strength to run on the next ball." But his fears were groundless. The ball sailed into the left-field fair territory and gave the Braves a 4-3 victory over New York Mets in the 12th inning Monday night. Earlier, Garr tied the game with a two-out home run in the 10th inning. EXPOS EDGED In other National League games, Pittsburgh Pirates beat Montreal Expos 6-5, Philadelphia Phillies turned back Cincinnati Reds 3-2 and Houston Astros' beat San Diego Padres 2-0. In both instances, the Garr homers were on the first pitch. Roberto Clemente, who unloaded a homer in the eighth, cracked a two-run triple in the ninth to give Pittsburgh a come-back victory over Montreal. Clemente had left five runners stranded prior to his batting splurge, coaxing boos from the ELRICH TIRE SPORT SCORES Bowling CAPRI BOWL YOUNG ADULTS Bruce Cenlleld 266, Darwin Roman-chuk 310 (78/), Bert Olson 265, Ron Senda 257, Ken Larson 760, Nadlne Kovacs 211.

Mike Ryan's tie-breaking homer in the eighth helped Philadelphia's Jim Bunning break a six-game losing streak. Bunning checked the Reds on five hits for eight innings and drove in the Phillies' first two runs with a sacrifice fly and homer. Tom Hall came out of Minnesota Twins' bullpen in the )>inth inning Monday night and struck out three successive pinch-hitters, stranding the tying run on third base and saving a 3-2 Minnesota victory over California Angels. Elsewhere In the American League, Boston Red Sox nipped Detroit Tigers 3-2, New York Yankees downed Baltimore Orioles 6-3 and Cleveland Indians beat Washington Senators C-3. The Red S'ox widened their East-Division lead over second-place Baltimore to 2Vi games, coming from behind on George Scott's two-run double in the fifth and then staving off the Tigers with the help of a sensational catch by left fielder Car) Yastrzemski. Roy White poled his seventh homer of the season-a two-run shot in the first inning-and Gene Michael slapped two run producing singles to lead the Yankees past the Orioles. Home runs by John Lowen stein and Ken Harrelson staked the Indians to an early 4-0 lead and they held off Washington in a game marked by a jarring collision between left fielder Lowenstein, centre fielder Vada Pinson and shortstop Jack Heidemann that forced all three to the sidelines. Lowenstein and Heidemann, who suffered leg injuries, were carried from the field on stretchers and taken to a hospital, where x-rays were negative. Pinson took eight stitches in his right cheek to close a spike wound. NATIONAL LEA6UI East W .. 21 . 21 . 20 . 18 ... 13 . 11 West . 27 . 18 . 18 . 17 . 13 10 Race results New York . Pittsburgh ..
