Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - May 30, 1970, Lethbridge, Alberta THE UTHBR1DGE HERALD Saturday. May 30, 1970 BORN WITHOUT ARMS-Rusiy Redfern, 6, of Atlanta, Georgia, was born with- out arms but that doesn't keep him from playing in the Pee Wee Baseball League. Rusty plays shortstop for the Falcons and is shown blocking a ball. He kicks the ball to first intead of throwing it. They Claim Tampering College Coaches Upset MONTREAL (CP) Athletic directors and football coaches at Canadian universities and colleges seldom appreciate their American counterparts coming to Canada to offer scholarships. Doug Insleay, athletic direc- tor at Montreal's Sir George WMams University, became Extremely upset when he found one of his football players, Jim Davis, at Montreal Alouettes' scholarship evaluation camp. The Eastern Football Confer- ence team runs the camp to de- termine which players are best- suited for United States college football scholarships. "It's contrary to the agree- ment with the Canadian Foot, ball said Insleay. "All the teams have agreed not to Transportation?

A delegation from Sir George and Loyola College of Montreal showed up at Thursday's ses- sion of the Alouettes camp to confer with coach Sam Etchev- erry and scout J. I. Albrecht. PROBLEM SETTLED "We settled it on the said Albrecht. "The boy shouldn't have been invited to the camp and we didn't have any prior knowledge of him playing fcr Sir George." Etcheverry added: "This camp is no place for a boy who has already started1 college. The American schools wouldn't offer Mm a scholarship since he would be classified as a transfer student and would have to sit out a year and lose eligibility." "We can't compete with the American schools as far as scholarships and facilities said Al Keith, hesd football coach at St. Mary's University, Halifax, who was at the scholar- ship camp. "We just offer a boy a good education, a good school." The American coaches attend- ing the camp are amazed at the happenings and are a little upset by the attitude of the Ca, nadian coaches.

He said: "They told him that if he goes to North Carolina he won't be able to come back to Canada and teach. They make us sound like some kind of hick school. 1 just, hope when I get him down to the campus next week he'll see how wrong they are." Sawclnik Improves NEW YORK (AP) Terrj Sawchuk, a 40-year-old goalie for New York Rangers of the National Hockey League, was transferred to a New York City hospital Friday in good condi tion, a spokesman at Long Beach, N.Y., Memorial Hospita said. Sawchuk had been reported in critical condition after being readmitted to the Long Beach hospital this week. He had first been admitted to the hospital April 29 for re- moval of his gall bladder. A po- lice official had quoted him as saying he suffered the ailment while "horseplaying on his lawn." REACHES FINAL LYTHAM ST. ANNE'S, Eng- land (Reuters) Hank Irvine of Rhodesia beat the No. 2 seed, Tony Bardsley of Vancouver Friday, to win a place in the final of the St. Anne's tennis tournament. TODAY LE BARONS 7th ANNUAL 4 HOT ROD and CUSTOM SHOW TODAY UNTIL MIDNIGHT EXHIBITION PAVILION ADMISSION S1.50 CARS FROM ALBERTA, BRITISH COLUMBIA, SASKATCHEWAN AND NORTHERN UNITED STATES Just Getting Into Shape Green Had No Fears About Losing His Job By STUART LAKE OTTAWA (CP) As a 10- year veteran of Boston Bruins, Ted Green said Friday he had no fears about his job when Bruins played St. Louis Blues here last September in an exhi- bition game. Nor had he taken any particu- lar notice of St. Louis' winger Wayne a newcomer trying to break into the National Hockey League after a year's absence. Rookies can last only a day or so in training camp and Green said he was more concerned about skating himself into shape for the coming 1969-70 season. Before the first period was over, however, Maki and Green engaged in a strick-duel that shocked the hockey world and almost cost the Bruin defence- man Iris life. Green, who hasn't skated since that game, underwent three head operations. Now al- most fully recovered and look- ing hopefully towards playing next season, he is charged with assault arising from his part of the Sept. 21 duel. Provincial Court Judge Mi- chael Fitzgerald reserved his decision on the charge against Green. Because of a busy court calendar, he's not expected to render a verdict until July. Testifying Friday, Green ex- plained that he had no feelings of malice towards Maki during the exhibition game here. SLIGHT MEMORY He remembered playing against Maki only "on one shift" in 1966-67 when Maki played for Chicago Black Hawks. Veterans' take it easy during the training camp and Green said he knew he had five weeks to get into shape. Rookies, he said, go all out right away "for the very good reason" they want to stay in the NHL. Around the 14-minute mark of the Sept. 21 game, the puck was shot into the Boston end. Blues coach Scotty Bowman sent Maki on the ice for the first time. "It was in my end of the ice and it was my duty to get con- trol of Green recalled in the witness box. "I raced for it with a St. Louis later found it was I got control of it first. "Wayne was fighting to take it from me. I shot the puck around to the other wing and then tried to return to my posi- tion in front of the net. "Wayne prevented me from doing so by holding my sweater. I gave him a shove with my glove, apparently in the face. Wayne fell down at the side of the net. I tried to skate around him and he. speared me in the tesUcles. I then gave him a tap with my stick on the shoulder." Green said he had not in- tended to hurt Maki. The tap was meant as a warning for Maki "to cut out that non- sense." He said he doesn't recall the blow that felled Sim. As he turned to face Maki, a game of- ficial placed a hand on his arm. TURNED AWAY "When I felt the press on my arm; I turned away from Maki: The next thing I recall I was having convulsions on the ice and woke lip in hospital with a funny haircut." He felt no ill-will towards Maki and planned no criminal or civil action against him. He had always taken bumps on the ice as part of the game. NHL players don't wear lace panties, the rugged defenceman said. Those who did, didn't last. Crown Attorney John Cassells said Green had over-reacted to the alleged spear by Maki. He had delivered "a reckless blow" with his stick that could have injured Maki. For the thousands of amateur hockey players, it was impor- tant to determine whether stick-swinging and similar con- duct on the ice could lead to criminal charges. Mr. Cassells said it hadn't been a "pleasant duty for my- self" to prosecute Green. Defence lawyer Edward Hous- ton said it would be "a shocking thing" if Green were found guilty especially after Maki was found not guilty. Had Green really wanted to clobber Maki, he had had plenty of opportunity to do so. If police made it a practice to press criminal charges for ac- tions on the ice and football field, there wouldn't bs enough room in Canadian courtrooms to hear all the cases. Mr. Houston said Green was being subjected "to cruel and unusual treatment." Minor Ball Harvey Pocza fired a two- hitter as the Angels edged the Tigers 6-4 in a Lakeside Little League contest.
