By PAT SULLIVAN Herald Sports Editor "Old legs working and playing for charity." "You can't say it any better than said Bill Hay of Calgary Thursday afternoon as the Lethbridge Kinsmen Club announced that the NHL Old Timers, comprised of former players of the Detroit Red Wings and Montreal Canadiens, would play the Western Old Timers Dec. 8 at the Sportsplex. That's where Bill Hay comes in. Hay, a standout with the Chicago Black Hawks of the National Hockey League, is the main organizer of the west club and was in Lethbridge to announce the plans for the Sun- day game. A quick look at the background of the NHL Old Timers finds them playing winter exhibition games and turning the proceeds over to charity. In each case, the Old Timers take a share of the gate for their own charity and allow the sponsoring service clubs to dispense the rest to a charity of their own. "Despite the fact a number of the Old Timers are from said Hay, "They have seen fit to turn the entire proceeds from the game over to the Canada Winter Games. "We hope we can sell your place added Hay. All in- dications are the seat Sportsplex may be bulging. Household hockey names such as Elmer Lach, Maurice (Rocket) Richard, Marty Pavelich, John Ferguson, Ted Lindsay, former Lethbridge Native Son Billy Dea, just to metion a few, will be on hand to face the west club. Besides Hay, the western oldies will see the likes of locals Al Willis, Howie Yanosik, Les Colwill, Earl Ingarfield, Bob Bartlett, Stan Maxwell and Jim Baird. Out of Calgary will be coach Sweeney Schriner, Rock Crawford, Bert Olmstead, Lou Jankowski and Ray Kanawich. It is expected that 22 players will form the roster from the west and a like number from the NHL. As Hay pointed out, the idea of the Old Timers game is to provide hockey fans with entertainment and keep the so called, Old Timers young. The Old Timers will play Friday, Dec. 6 in Edmonton and then will arrive in Lethbridge Saturday night and are to take in the Lethbridge Broncos Flin Flon Bombers Western Canada Hockey League game. Tickets for the encounter will go on sale Monday at the Sportsplex. All seats are reserved and priced at each. Out of town patrons may mail in their money to the Sportsplex of- fice and in return, their tickets will be mailed to them. For faster service, game officials request all mail orders contain a self addressed return envelope and postage. Ray Morton is the chairman of the game and will be assisted by Paul Rusznak. Other committee members include Billy Gibson, Rod Draffin, Dave Hughes, Bill John- son, Leo MacDonald, Jim McDermid and Bill Shostak. "At one time we (the Kinsmen Club) had the finest Sportsman's Dinner in said Rosznak. "Who knows, we can maybe make this Old Timers game an annual affair to help keep Southern Alberta sportsmen happy."
