Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - May 19, 1973, Lethbridge, Alberta J4 THE LErHSS.lDGE HERAID Saturday, May 19. 1973 Money, money is everything TORONTO (CP) "Money is the big thing." says Andre Sav- ard, but he and many other Na- tional Hockey League draftees have other things to consider since being picked Friday by a second big-time league. The World Hockey Associ- ation's first annual draft of over-age juniors left several in the enviable position of being sought by two clubs, with Sav- ard and four others on top of the heap as first-round picks in both drafts. And while the biggest advan- tage is the certainty of a fatter contract, the junior stars now have the luxury of other choices as well. Savard, chosen by Quebec Nordijques Friday and by Bos- ton Bruins Tuesday in the NHL draft at Montreal, says money is the prime consideration but there are at least two others: choice of where he will live, I and the risk of being fanned cut by the Bruins rather than taking an almost-certain start- ing spot with Quebec. i "You have to be sure when you play professional hockey they don't send you down to the minors." he said Friday. In addition, "I've played in Quebec City for four years with Quebec Remparts and I've loved my years down there.7' "My agent will talk to both teams. I don't lean either way, but 1 don't know Boston and I j do know Quebec." The WHA brass consider the near-certainty of a starting spot a big bargaining point, and Montreal lawyer Dave Schatia, who has Savard and many jun- ior hockey clients, agreed. He predicted the WHA would sign up to 20 of its junior picks. He said Reg Thomas, first- round pick of Los Angeles Sharks, was a "prime prospect" to go to the WHA. It was ru- mored that Chicago Black Hawks, who picked the flashy London Knights centre in the second NHL round, had offered him a minor-league contract. Likewise Glenn Goldup of To- ronto Marlborcs, first pick of WHA champion New England Whalers, and his Toronto team- mate Peter Marrin, third choice of Toronto's un-named fran- chise ?jre v.nHV''Hv tn Mon- treal Canadiens, their NHL drafter, because they would have a slim chance of breaking into the NHL there, Schatia said. Another possible considera- tion is loyalty, said President Bill Hunter of Alberta Oilers. He said he thinks John Rogers of Edmonton Oil Kings, of which Hunter is majority share- holder, to stay in our organization." Rogers was the Oilers' first-round pick and sec- ond choice of Minnesota North Stars of the NHL. He said the league "got some good beys'' who will "certainly bolster our teams." Once they're signed, thr.t is. SPORT RIGHT B ON I TARGET ffl FOR n Frazier waits, wants to fight Tack Nichlaus Minor baseball The Indians had no trouble at all Friday night as they blanked the YanKees 6-0 in Lakeside Little League action. Brent Maxwell was the big story of the night as he held Yankees to two hits while ianning 15. Brad Kirshman suffered the scss giving up seven hits. D'Arcy Focier paced t h e u-inners at the plate stroking a double and a pair of singles while Maxwell aided his own cause with a double and a single. John Kunst and LeBaron managed solo hits off Maxwell. In another Lakeside encoun- ter. Barry Kim.mitt led the While Sox to a convincing 15-0 victory over the Tigers. Doug Richardson took the loss. Neil Povey hammered a home run and Kinxmitt aided in the win with three singles. The Dodgers doubled the score, 6-3, on Expos in Nor- crest Little League action. Reggie Heggen picked up the Hill playing badly MEMPHIS f AP) Dave Hill says he's playing "horribly." Trevino says, "I should be down the road. Missed the cut. I could have shot a quick- running 80." But Hill has a solid lead and Trevino still is very much in contention going into today's third round of the Danny Thomas-Memphis Golf Classic. Hill had to do some scram- j Wing but saved his round wiih a i new putter and a new putting i grip as he shot a three-under- j par 69 in Friday's second round j fv: a 137 total, seven under par i on the wind-swept. Colonial Country Club course. The controversial Hill, whose unmatched history of success in this event includes three titles in one four-year stretch, held a two-stroke lead over his nearest challenger, non-winning Jerry McGee. McGee was alone in second with a W for jr.9. The three Canadians in the tournament fallal to qualify for tli2 third round. Ben Kern of Tcronto had a 74 for a 153 total, John Morgan of Victoria a 76 for 157 and George Knudson of Toronto a 78 for 158. LEE ESCAPES Trevino, winner of the last two Memphis titles, had a fan- tastic round. He missed the green on the first seven holes he played, but made par on five of them. Me was in the sand, in the woods and almost in the wa- ter, but managed to match par 72 for a i'43 total, one under par and six back of Hill. "I escaped with my he said. "I should have been down the mad. And I did all of it from the middle cf the fairway. I just couldn't hit my irons at ail." win as he struck out eight and gave up five hits. Clark Bosch was the loser. No one got anything more than a single for the winners while Wyatt Blair, and Ricky Leitch each had a double for the Expos. In Norcrest Senior League ac- tion the Pirates stopped the Padres 12-8 as David Miskulin topped Greg Tokariuk. Misku- lin had 12 strike outs while Tok- ariuk fanned 10. Dan Riedlhuber pounded out two home runs and a single for the Pirates. Greg Kveder chip- ped in with a home run and a single. Jim Kctkas nabbed two doubles and a single in four trips to the plate for the Pad- res. PREROUND STRflTEGX..... YOU PLflY ON COURSES OTHER TURN youR OWN., PERHflPS W INTER-CLUE.

That's the reason he's sure he'll get another shot soon at the only man ever to beat him, George Foreman. "When you're chanra, you have to live like a champ" the 29-year-old dethroned king of the heavyweights said to- day. "You've got to have big cars, fancy clothes, rings and mink coats for the missus. George don't have all those things yet. "So he's got to come look- ing for me again. I represent the big payday. After all, he can't take that title and hide with it. He may want to fight me before the year is out." Frazier, in New York as one of the 11 judges for tonight's Miss U.S.A. contest, knows about high living. Attired in a white turiie- neck shirt, checked pants, crimson jacket and white high-heel boots, he relaxed in his skyscraper suite of one of New York's swankiest hotels mid chatted amiably about the life of an ex-champion. A few friends and relatives lounged in the over-stuffed chairs, two television sets were on and a radio blared rock music. Frazier talked above the din. DIDN'T CHANGE LIFE "My life hasn't been any different since he said, referring to that shatter- ing night in Kingston when the underdog Foreman smashed 'him to the canvas six times in two rounds. "I still got my music. I'm well off financially. I work out every day, keep my body in shape. I go places. I speak to the kids. The only thing is maybe I've lost a few en- dorsements but I had too many anyway. "People stiii recognize me. They come and say, "Sorry, you lost, Joe, but you'll win the next time.'" It's the one thing Joe is su- rest of in his life; he'll couie back and win. "Maybe I was down a bit mentally in the last fight. Not physically; how can ,you tell in two rounds? I just know tlu's: I'm living for the day I can get George Foreman back in those four squares.

This year, the 73 Piymouths are more beautiful than ever. But many of our important engineering improvements don't even show. And we count them as most important. They make the 73 Piymouths safer, quieter, smoother-riding and longer lasting than ever before. Extra care in engineering.. .it makes the difference. the existing front members. For Plymouth stand up to the ruin- even more protection, we've ing effects of rust and corrosion, added rubber guards front and rear. They'll take quite a punch, without anything getting hurt. Disc Brakes Standard on Most Cars Disc brakes have greater fade resistance than conventional brakes. They perform more smoothly, stop your car in a straighter line, and' are more we've devised a new plating pro- cess that applies powdered particles of cadmium, tin or zinc to protect them. Every 1973 Plymouth has it. effective at fast NEW Electronic Engine Function Tester Chrysler is dedicated to building cars and trucks to the highest quality control standards. To NEW Quieter Cars for 1973 The 73 Piymouths are the quiet- est cars we have ever made. In- siclc and out. Passenger com- partments have been surrounded with sound insulating materials packed into critical areas of the cars body. Plymouth's Unibody helps too.The one-piece welded body and frame stays tight and quiet foryears. The major cause of noise In a car today is roadshock travelling up through the suspension and into the body of the car. To cut most of this noise we isolate ihe front and rear suspensions with rubber. Chrysler and Fury have had this quiet feature for some time. And we have now added this system to our Satellite line. Ask your Plymouth dealer to explain all the Chrysler Quiet features. Electronic Ignition- Now Standard Last year Chrysler introduced the Electronic Ignition system on some Plymouth models. Now it's standard on all 1973 Plymouth engines built in North America. The Electronic Ignition system eliminates breaker points and condenser. This means your en- gine will stay in tune longerand go further between tuneups. And it also means that your exhaust emissions will stay cleaner too. NEW Emission Control Features We're all working toward cleaner air. That's why all 73 Plymouth engines are equipped with an exhaus gasreCirculation system and automatic vacuum spark advance control system, for con- trolling oxides of nitrogen. Also, we've added an electric assist choke to help reduce emissions during starting and warm-up. NEW Higher Impact Bumpers If you take a little bump, we want you to get off without a scratch. That's why we've added full length reinforcement mem- bers front and rear. And strengthened freeway speeds. Front disc brakes are now standard equipment on all Plymouth cars (except six- cylinder NEW Higher Speed Starter Motor Ouick starting is important, so we've developed a new, higher speed starter motor for our 1973 360, 400 and 440 cu. in.

NEW Mechanical Plating Process To help the exposed, critical safety parts on your new further raise the standard of Quality Control, we have intro- duced the Electronic Engine Function Tester. We call her "Miss Miss EFT tells us all about an engine when it's run- ning. She tells us many things we couldn't find with conven- tional equipment. Engines that pass Miss EFT's test get a Quality Control Tag. She really helps us build better cars. Here are just a few of the many engineering improvementsrnada to the 1973 Plymouth models.
