It started in Salmon B.C. and has stretched over most of North America during his 27 years. Buist is currently working with the Canada Winter Games and playing ball with the Lethbridge Lakers. The Canada Winter Games people are pleased to have Buist and so are the Laker officials. He will be a big asset to the club. Five years of Class A baseball in the United States will see to that. Buist spent one year with the New York Met organization and then spent .four years in the St. Louis Cardinal chain. played baseball in Cedar Rock Hill South Carolina and Louis says Buist. When I got to Louistown I knew it was time to He quit Class A traveling but not baseball. A third pitcher Buist played in the Canadian baseball championships against many of his new team-mates. going to help our said manager Paul Sullivan at Tuesday's exhibition game against the junior Miners. Buist was on the mound for one inning Tuesday and struck out the side. He says he'll be even tougher when he -takes off some weight around the middle. He'll get lots of chances to do that as the Lakers hit the diamond lor keeps in the Alberta Major Baseball League next Tuesday in Calgary. The locals are on the road for their first nine games. While they were just getting the kinks out Tuesday the Lakers look ready for their season opener. Already in the fold from last year's club are who will pitch and Bryan and Randy Bobby Rob Tim Ken Nakama and Rod Taylor. Add to those fellows like Neil Les Ohrn and Jim Ross and things are really shaping up. As according to club president Reno a couple of dandies from B.C. are expected in camp this evening to help round things out.

Word out of Regma said American interests were looking at Lethbridge along with five or six other clubs to form a Western Canada League got a letter from a Frosty Kennedy asking about our said Lizzi. But all indications are the locals will simply file the letter Some exciting news out of Philadelphia Wednesday had Randy Andreachuk and his family on that proverbial Cloud Nine. The Flyers apparently liked what they saw of young Andreachuk this past wintef and drafted him. Hard determination and an all round love of the game of hockey has paid off in spades for Randy. A rocky shuffling from team to team in junior saw him end up in Kamloops of the Western Canada Hockey League last year where he blinked the red light 49 times. It is all worth it now. The in case you won the Stanley Cup this past year. A great chance for the likeable young man. We wish him well North Generals win Rules prevent emphasis on winning Girls' softball is fun A little softball and a lot of fun started for Lethbridge girls between the ages of nine and 14 years of age as the city's Minor Softball League for girls opened on three fronts Tuesday. In Squirts division action at St. Basil's the Cheetahs sr.uck past the Wild Cats 11-10 while the Cougars and Cyclones battled to a 9-9 draw. In a Bantam division contest at Kinsmen the Devil's Angels whipped the Diamond Streakers 16-1. Other Bantam action at the Wilson School saw the Whizettes dropped by Snoppy's All-Stars and the Trimble-Ett Astros belting the Knock Outs 30-14. The softball didn't supply all of the as' League President Marilyn Snedden noted. was a she said. one the shortstop did somersaults and cartwheels when the-action got In another a young second basewoman spotted her parents at the and calmly walked off the field to visit with them. The girls get away with antics such as this because the league is primarily directed towards having fun. There are a number of rules which insure this.. The games are six innings and substitute players must be put in after the third inning to guarantee equal playing time for everyone. To protect against lopsided there is a rule which provides that an inning ends when there are three or when five runs have been whichever happens first. the season-ending play-off will feature all of the teams rather than just the top three or four. The which is financed by donations from local clubs and consists of 12 teams playing in three and involves 200 girls. There are five Squirts and six Bantam as well as one Midget team which is preparing to represent the south country in the First Alberta Summer Games in Calgary August 22-25. The Midget girls have no league to play but are arranging exhibition and may possibly challenge teams of the other sex later on. Over the the Minor Softball Association and the Department of Culture and Youth sponsored a players and coaches clinic to help out the girls before they started their first year of organized league softball. The Association and the league are working in co-operation with the Community Services Department this year.

Terry Rhodes accounted for half of the Labor Club's four hits as he managed two singles. N.C. They're all some to be but all the great names of pro golf have gathered for the Kemper Open. There's good reason for it.
