Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - May 30, 1973, Lethbridge, Alberta Indy 500 will try it again today Foyt one of three drivers fined INDIANAPOLIS (AP) A steady drizzle Tuesday washed out the Indianapolis 500-mile race for the second straight first time in the 57- year history of the event that it has happened. It was rescheduled for 11 a.m. MDT today. Thirty-one of the 32 remaining cars in the starting field man- aged to get in a parade and pace lap Tuesday before the rain returned. One of the original starting field of 33, David (Salt) Wal- ther's No. 77, was missing from the lineup. It was the only car damaged seriously in Monday's multiple-car wreck. Walther was seriously injured in the accident not nine seconds after the false start of the race. Speedway officials and driv- ers were apologetic in their re- marks about the second wash- out. Chief Steward Harlan Fengler told the second-day crowd of more than that he waited for 4% hours before call- Kuckeran right on target individually Schmidt captures grand aggregate While Ben Schmidt of Taber shot his way to the grand ag- gregate championship of the Lethbridge Fish and Game Association rifle shoot he was forced to share the spot- light with talented Rick Ku- cheran of the host club. Kucheran was brilliant as he won three individual cate- gories and shared in a fourth over the two days. The grand aggregate honors are decided on a total-point basis at the completion of five events. Schmidt captured the silverware with his overall point total in the five cate- gories which include 20 yards with a .22 calibre rifle, 50 yards with a .22, 150 yards with a scope or iron sighted rifle, 300 yards and the four- position big rifle event. Schmidt best shot Ben Schmidt, left, of Taber receives the grand aggregate trophy from Bob Vair of the Lethbridge Fish and Game Association. Schmidt won his trophy in the recent rifle shoot sponsored by the local association. General managers meet again today CFL schedule undecided OTTAWA (CP) The gen- eral-managers of the nine Cana- dian Football League clubs will meet again today in an effort to reach agreement on a draft of the schedule for the 1974 sea- son. Greg Fulton, CFL secretary- treasurer, said Tuesday follow- ing the first session of the league's four-day semi-annual meeting that "thousands of combinations" are tried before the final draft is ratified. "There are always lots of Fulton said. "The league puts a draft together and the GMs battle for adjust- ments." Fulton said that while the 1974 schedule will be made final here, it will not be published for some time. CFL commissioner Jake Gau- daur said his office puts the proposed schedule together by Dec. 31 of the previous year and asks each club to express its "desires, prohibitions and complaints." "We then try to distribute all the goods and bads equally be- tween all the clubs WANTED SCHEDULE For example general-man- ager J. I. Albrecht of Montreal Alouettes hopes to have a 1974 home schedule of his cross-town Expos of base- ball's National coming here. "We thought we'd have a copy of the baseball schedule before coming here, but un- fortunately theirs is not rati- Albrecht said Tuesday night. "And I guess with the move of San Diego (Padres) to Washington next season, it may- be some time before it is." The Alouettes and the Expos conflict four times this season in a fight for the box office dol- lar in Montreal. This despite at- tempts by Albrecht and gen- eral-manager Jim Fanning of the Expos to sidestep the con- frontation by one team or the other shifting dates. Gaudaur said he understood the baseball management had "been most co-operative" dur- ing discussions, but the fact that the football team has only seven home dates in the regular season, should be a matter for consideration. Next season there will be eight as the East- ern Football Conference under- takes a 16-game schedule for each team. Albrecht said the fact that the CFL schedule is produced first would give the Expos fewer dates to work around. "As soon as our schedule is put together, I'll meet with the baseball people he said.

Lewis, Jackson in Hall HAMILTON (CP) Russ Jackson, Leo Lewis and Moe Lieberman have been elected to the Canadian Football Hall of Fame, it was announced today. Jackson and Lewis, two of the biggest names of their day, were elected to the player's sec- tion while Lieberman was elected to the builder's section. Jackson, now a school princi- pal and television commentator, was one of the most brilliant Canadians ever to play the game. As quarterback of Ot- tawa Rough Riders he was named the top player in the game three times. His ability to run the ball made him. one of the most ex- citing performers anywhere. And when his running was cut off he hurt the opposition with the pass. As well as being a superb tootball player, Jackson, 36, was a bright boy in the class- room. In his last year at McMaster University he de- clined a nomination for a Rhodes Scholarship. He turned to professional foot- ball and led Ottawa to the play- offs in the Eastern Conference in all 12 seasons with the club. They won the Grey Cup in 1960, 1968 and 1969, the last year he played and the last tune Ottawa made the final. Lewis, nicknamed the Lincoln Locomotive, played 11 seasons with Winnipeg Blue Bombers, making all-star six times. He twice gained more than yards in a season. He was nominated as Can- ada's outstanding players five times, but never won the award. TICEHURST DIES VANCOUVER (CP) Bert Ticehurst, one of British Col- umbia's top amateur golfers and a 10-time member of B.C.'s inter-provincial Willing- don Cup team, died Tuesday in hospital. ing the race, hoping conditions would improve. They didn't. "We have a very dangerous situation here. The track is not Fengler said. The pow- erful, turbocharged champion- ship cars cannot run safely on a wet track. A. J. Foyt Jr., a three-time winner at Indy, apparently was a better judge of weather than the race officials. He changed out of his driving uniform and left to eat a meal at the nearby Speedway VIP suites several hours before the official an- nouncement was made. Foyt was one of three drivers fined each Tuesday for im- proving their positions before Monday's aborted start. The others were Steve Krisiloff and Peter Revson. Fengler handed out the fines and also recommended that the U.S. Auto Club impose a stiffer fine against the three. The max- imum fine he could impose, however, was "It may be that I passed one or two cars before starting Foyt admitted. "I passed most of them after the starting line. But, they (the officials) are in better position to see than I was. It's their decision and I'll accept it." None of the three was directly involved in the spectacular wreck. The first rain delay Tuesday wasn't bad for everyone. A brake hose on John Mar- tin's McLaren had been seared hi the Monday wreck and gave out on the parade lap Tuesday. Martin had to go into the pits and would have missed the start of the race. The repair was made with the help of pole- sitter Johnny Rutherford's chief mechanic, Hughie Absalom, and some USAC officials, who helped Martin's crew get a new hose. Martin was askted whether the delays made him edgy. His re- ply apparently expressed the sentiment of most of the driv- ers, some of whom sailed a Frisbee in the pit area or nap- ped during the long wait. "I don't get Martin said. "I just get sleepy."

In another encounter, the Canucks and Bed Sox battled to a 12-12 draw. Chester Yung performed on the mound for the Canucks while Elaine Bartel did the chores for the Red Sox. Mark Dumont went four-for- four at the plate for the win- ners while Joe Secreton man- aged three safeties.
