Alberta circuit to seek improved status from CAHA Local ice situation concerns junior directors Officials of the Alberta Junior Hockey League are concerned about the artificial Ice situation in Lethbridge where fire destroyed the Arena March 12. At a weekend meeting in Red Deer, league president Doug Lauchlan said "to our knowledge'no start has yet been made on a new arena, and we are going to have to have a firm commitment soon from the City of Lethbridge or the Sugar Kings may have to suspend operations." At a meeting last Thursday the city's arena development c o m m ittee recommended a community - type ice facility be built in the Henderson Lake ball park area, with a seating capacity of 600 to 1,000, with a major arena to be built in 1972. Sugar King manager Syd Hall feels the team could carry on for one year without a rink with suitable seating. "However," he said, "it would be financial suicide to try and make it through two years without enough seating for us to meet our financial obligations." He said it's understandable that league officials are concerned about the local situation. "We're concerned ourselves,'! he added, "very much concerned because at the moment we don't know what the future really holds regarding a new rink." Kings, the top-drawing team' In the AJHL, were forced to play four playoff games in Taber when fire destroyed the Arena in March. The AJHL went on record at the Red Deer meeting in making a bid to have the Canadian Amateur Hockey Association improve its status. League directors decided to ask the CAHA to designate the AJHL as a Tier One league instead of its present Tier Two classification. Lauchlan said we feel we have proven ourselves to be Tier One calibre. "One of our teams, Red Deer Rustlers, won the Canadian championship, we held our own against teams of the Western Canada Hockey League in exhibition games and our all-star team defeated Edmonton Oil Kings of the WCHL." The only Tier One leagues now m Canada are the WCHL, the Ontario Hockey Association Junior A Series and the Quebec Junior Hockey League. The British Columbia Junior League announced some tune ago it will also seek tier one status. The AJHL directors also decided to defer a request from Ponoka Stampeders for a one-year leave of absence pending the result of several fund-raising campaigns and the emergence of other operators. A final decision on the fate of the financially plagued Ponoka chib will be made at the league's annual meeting in Red Deer June 19, said Lauchlan. Ponoka requested the leave of absence due to financial difficulties which have left the club $10,000 in debt after four years of operation. "Directors expressed consid erable skepticism over the leave of absence procedure and were of the opinion the town of Ponoka should decide whether or not it wants to continue in Junior "A" hockey," said Lauchlan. The league also heard fran- chise applications from Drum-heller, the University of Alberta junior varsity, and the Alberta Indian Association. The Indian Association plans to enter an all-native team which would be stocked by players from four junior "B" clubs, one operating in each of the four western provinces. The junior "A" team would operate out of Fort Macleod. Final decision on the franchise applications will be made at the annual meeting. The league now has six teams - Edmonton Movers and Maple Leafs, Lethbridge, Red Deer, Ponoka and Calgary Mount Royal College Cougars. Oil Kings drop series opener ANDY CAPP Rugby win for locals The Lethbridge Rugby Club scored its second victory in as many starts over the weekend with a 34 conquest of Calgary Canucks. It was the team's first league start in the Calgary Rugby Football League after downing Calgary Rams in an earlier exhibition. Paul Carter provided the points with an unconverted try. The locals will take part in a 20-team tournament in Edmonton ibis weekend with teams from throughout Canada to compete. QUEBEC (CP) - Bill Hunter, general manager of Edmonton Oil Kings, has a promise for followers of his junior hockey team: They're going to win the second game of the Memorial Cup playoff series Wednesday night. Hunter made the vow shortly after his team was defeated 5-1 by Quebec Remparts in the first game of the best-of- three series to determine the No. 1 first-level junior A hockey team in Canada. The game drew 10,012 fans. "We weren't sharp," said Hunter. "We needed that game though. We haven't played since May 5. "We will seeWednesday night, though. We are going to win Wednesday." The Oil Kings, Western Canada Hockey League champions, got off to a good start against the Remparts as they constantly forechecked the fast-skating Quebec team in the opening period, preventing them from mounting any concerted attack. The forechecking paid off in a goal by Dan Spring at 4:08 of the opening period, with the Oil Kings' Dave Kryskow in the penalty box serving a high-sticking infraction. Spring banked a shot off a skate past Quebec goaltender Michel Deguise, just 25 seconds after Kryskow was sent off. But the Remparts, described by Hunter as "the best skating junior club in Canada," came on strong in the second period and grabbed a 2-1 lead on goals by Michel Briere and Andre Sa-vard. Briere's goal at 1:49 evened the count and came just after Oil Kings' netmlnder Larry Hendricks stymied Jacques Richard on a breakaway. (Edmonton had a great opportunity to take the lead about a minute after Briere scored, but a shot by right winger Rick Wrozub struck the goal post, with Deguise out of position. The Remparts, Quebec Junior A Hockey League titlists, then went ahead to stay at 6:22 of the second period when S'avard blasted a shot that went in on Hendricks' stick side. MISSED CHANCES "I think Edmonton missed too many good opportunities in the first period," said Remparts' coach Maurice Filion after the game. Filion said he was impressed by the strong forechecking of the western club. "They forecheck with two men all the time and they have a man on the puck at all times." Filion feels that Edmonton Is a good team and added that "they just might come back strongly." Eskimos sign quarterback EDMONTON (CP) - Edmonton Eskimos of the Western Football Conference today announced the signing of Harry Theofildes, a 27-year-old quarterback originally from Waynes-burg College in Pennsylvania. Theofildes, five feet, 10% inches tall and 180 pounds, played for Washington Redskins of the National League in 1967 and 1968. In 1969 he was sent to the Brilgeport Jets and was purchased by the New York Jets a year later. He didn't make the team and returned, to Bridgeport. Jonas accepts Bomber terms WINNIPEG (CP) - Quarterback Don Jonas has agreed to accept contract terms offered by Winnipeg Blue Bombers of the Western Football Conference, it was announced Monday. Jonas,- acquired from Toronto Argonauts in a trade last week, phoned Bombers' general manager Earl Lunsford and said he would accept the Winnipeg contract. Terms of the contract were not revealed. Jonas, 30, was obtained in exchange for Canadians Joe Vijuk and Ward Smith. EX-PUCKSTER DIES SASKATOON (CP) - Charlie Mason, who played hockey with the New York Rangers in 1930, died today at the age of 59. He's high on Canadian youngsters Talent on way says Homenuik TORONTO (CP) - Wilf Homenuik, one of the few Canadians on the professional golf tour in the United States, says the tour "had better prepare itself for upcoming Canadian talent." "There's a fine crop of young Canadians coming up," said Homenuik who, at 32 years of age, says he will continue to play until he's "six feet under." "I'm talking about seven or eight individuals, not Just one," he said. "You take a fellow such as Ben Kern, 24, of Toronto. There's tomorrow's Bobby Hull of golf." Homenuik, who plays out of the Glendale Golf Club in Winnipeg, isn't as pleased with his own performance as he is with that of fellow Canadian performers. In a telephone interview, Homenuik said "I'm hitting the ball well." "In fact, it feels so good that I can't understand why Fm shooting 73s and 74s." Homenuik, after failing to make the cut at the Greater New Orleans Open May 7, shot :3-67-72-70 - 282 to win the Shreveport, La., East Ridge Golf Classic Sunday and pick up $5,000. "I've been having a type of mental relapse, so I've been trying to pace myself. My father died two weeks ago in my home town of Saskatoon. I can't concetrate with that still on my mind. "It's my mother home by herself, you know, and being on in years, it'll make it tough for her to shake a loss like that." Homenuik, who ranks 71st in the Professional Golfers Association's list of money - winners with approximately $13,000 to date, plans to "sit back and hold" - just like George Knudson of Toronto. "I'm thinking like George," said Homenuik. "I'll pace, and then hold up for the grand finale this summer when the going gets really tough." "I may feel Like a 22-year-old, but I've got another 10 on that," said Homenuik. "I'll let the younger guys like Wayne Vollmer, Vancouver and Kern, do all the running for Canada now." "Besides," added Homenuik, "they'll probably be the ones everyone will be talking about this summer anyhow." Effective hockey helmet is designed CALGARY (CP) - Research at the University of Ottawa has led to the design of a new and effective hockey helmet, the Canadian Congress of Applied Mechanics at University of Calgary was told Monday. Dr. James A. Newman, assistant professor of Mechanical Engineering at the University of Ottawa, reported results of an 18-month study on the protective headgear. Dr. Newman said tests in the university's laboratories and under actual playing conditions led the researchers to findings which were incorporated in the production of a prototype helmet. The new helmet then was tested and proved superior to existing models It has a rigid, lightweight outer shell, one-piece construction, thicker inner suspension at key contact points, inner padding of a spongy material and improved air circulation and ventilation, he told the conference. The prototype helmet still is undergoing testing. Plans call for commercial production shortly, after a final report on the study and approval of the design. Thinking of RENTALS?
