Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - November 4, 1972, Lethbridge, Alberta totunlay, Nwwnbtr 4, THI LITHMIDGE HttALO IS 1ULLY SAYS -By Pat Sullivan CINCE annual holidays Interrupted my bid for a winning record picking the outcome Canadian Football League regular season games, I will pick up where I left off and give you the inside dope on the upcoming playoffs and Schenley Awards. Think nothing it. After all, at holiday break I was cruising along at an 11 right-three wrong clip and feel just as certain about things to come now as I did then. First of all, 'the west should be simple, making it easier for me. Winnipeg Blue Bombers won their first league pennant in a decade and I can't see them not representing the Western Conference in the Grey Cup classic in Hamilton, Dec. 3. I am fully aware I said Calgary would repeat as Canadian champs but have since revised my thinking just in the knick time I would say. The Blue Bombers have the ace in the hole so to speak a bye into the final. This does not assure them of instant success but they bypass the always lough semi-final showdown. No one, in their right minds, wants to play an extra football game at this time of the year unless it is absolutely necessary. Edmonton Eskimos, if for no other reason than the fact they deserve it, will earn the other berth in the final by getting past Saskatchewan Roughriders in the west semi-final. Eskimos have overcome more injuries in one season than any club I can recall in the past dozen years. That, however, will be as far as the Esks go this season. In the east, I can't see anyone unseating the Hamilton Tiger-Cals. I am fully aware that Ottawa Roughriders are currently tied with the Ti-Cats atop the standings but let's not kid ourselves the clubs have met three times with Hamilton winning on each occasion. The Riders will be forced to defeat Montreal Alou- ettes in the semi-final and then fall victim to 'the Ti-Cats in the east final. Despite the fact there are still two other clubs in the east, Montreal and Toronto Argonauts, 1 cant give them a second glance. The Als finished with a 4-10 mark while the Argos, with a win over Hamilton Sunday, can also reach the dizzying height of 4-10. Should this happen, the Argos would lose to the Riders in the semi-final because they won two of three meet- ings with the Als. So as I see it, Hamilton and Winnipeg will do battle to see who succeeds Calgary Stampeders as Grey Cup champions and my money is on the Tiger- Cals. To host or not to host, that is the question Nixon runs second to Olympic concern in Colorado DENVER (AP) The major concern for many Colorado residents voting in Tuesday's Now for Mr. Shen Lee and his awards. I will start with the rookie of Ihe year. II is ihe newest, and this year, the easiest. Chuck Ealey of the Hamilton Tiger-Cals should be a shoe-in over Tom Campana of Ihe Saskatchewan Roughriders. It has been a long lime since any firsl year player has elec- trified the nation in the manner Ealey has at the helm of Ihe Ti-Cats. It is unfortunate that Campana has to compete wilh Ealey this time around. Mack Herron, a keg of dynamite out of the Blue Bomber backfield, should win the most oulstanding player award over Garney Henley of the Ti-Cats. The voling should be close wilh Ihe final nod lo go lo Herron. And from where I sit, this will be the only award the west will win. John Helton of the Stampeders and Jim Young of B.C. Lions are the west representalives in Ihe line- man of the year and outstanding Canadian categor- ies respectively. Some other time fellows. First of ail Helton is not a better lineman than Jim Stillwagon of Ihe Argos. He has been in years past but not this lime. As a mailer of facl I was disap- poinled when the selectors bypassed Bill Baker Saskalchewan. To me he was the besl lineman in Ihe country tliis year. Bui then, I'm not eligible to vote. And finally Gerry Organ of Ottawa will win the oulslanding Canadian honors over Young. I feel this simply because he has been the better ball player. Let's face it, it doesn't hurt to have your team in a bailie for Ihe playoffs either. So there you have it. Herron, Ealey. Stillwagon and Organ in the Shenley awards and Hamillon as Grey Cup champs. You had bolter hope I'm wrong. It could be a long winter wilh me you, I told you so. election is not whether George McGovern or Richard Nixon is inaugurated as president o! the United States in January, 1973, but whether the Winter Olym- pics are held in the Colorado Rockies in February, 1976. "I'm fairly optimistic that we may win with even a substan- tially large says Henry Kimbrough, execuHvwii- rector of Coloradans for the 1976 Olympics. Kimbrough was speaking about proposed Amendment 8 on the Colorado election bal- proposition that would cut off further state funds for the Olympics and would prob- ably curtail federal support as well. Kimbrough and his group, composed mostly of .business- men, are trying to keep the Games in the state. Kimbrough saiii the group has a budget of around Citizens for Colorado's Future the organization that has become the focal point for opposition to the Olympics, has an advertising budget of less than according to Meg Lundstrom, 24, a CCF director. CCF 'WILL OVERCOME' "Although we've not been able to afford a slick media said Miss Lundst- rom, "we feel that the work o; our many door-to-door volun teers throughout the state wil be able lo overcome the mecMa blitz of Coloradans for the '76 Olympics." The referendum on state funding for the Games is with out precedent in the history o the modem Olympics. Since 1896 when the Games were re- vival in Athens, no city o state has voted whether to stage the Olympics once they were awarded. Kimbrough and other sup- porters of the Games say they are surprised at what they fee is a sudden reaction against the Olympics, yet opposition had begun to appear some time be- fore the International Olympic Committee (IOC) awarded the 1976 Winter Games to Colorad May 12, 1970. The Kocky Mountain Sierra Club had opposed the Games for environmental reasons year before Colorado Gov. Johi Love took a delegation to Gre noble, France, during the 106 Winter Games to try to con vince the IOC that Colorad was the place for the 1976 Win Icr Olympics. PROGRAM QUESTIONED By the autumn ot 1971, other groups had begun to questio the Deliver Organizing Com miltee's (DOC) planning an expense figures as well as tl apparently haphazard organ ization of the committee itself CCF was formed in early 197 by a group of eight or 10 youn people, mostly in their 20s. During January, CCF co lected more lhan sign tures on petitions asking th IOC to remove the Games from Colorado, Miss Lundstrom sai' Along with collecting the si natures, CCF also raisec enough money to send a thre man delegation lo Sapporo present the IOC with the pe lions. That the IOC gave th protesters a hearing plainly u set the pro-Olympics group, i eluding Gov. By June 6, CCF had collected signatures on petitions asking that a referendum be placed on the November ballot. "At first were concerned with the problems of growth and cost about said CCF's Filley, "but the cost is- sue seems to'have become the most important, as far as most of the voters are concerned." Love agrees that state spend- g is the main issue. "I think that the growth Issue as far as the 10-day Olympics are concerned is a red her- Love said recently. W. Richard Goodwin, chair- man of the newly renamed Denver Olympic Organizing Committee says the costs of the Games "will be held at million." That fig- ure includes million lor op- erating costs and million for construction of sports facil- ities. An additional million to be spent for press housing, mil- itary personnel to help run the Games, U.S. Forest Service preparations and a new high- way bridge are not being counted as direct Olympic costs. Goodwin says the funds already have been budgeted by the state or the federal govern- ment or will come from sources. Whatever the outcome of the vote Tuesday, both opponents and supporters of the Games have agreed to accept the deci- sion of the voters. "If the voters decide against permititng the use of state funds for the Games, then there's no way we can go ahead and put on the Olym- Goodwin said. "Even if we lose, the Olym- pics will have been affected by our said CCF's Miss Lundstrom. "They'll at least try to have a less ex- pensive Olympics and they're already more conscious of the environmental issues although t still won't help the growth is- me."

Outside of parking cars and selling programs Schmold, it would seem, does it all. A Mr. Everything in football togs. Schmold and his Spartan mates dropped an eager band of Vulcan Cougars 42-20 Fri- day evening in the final game of the Foothills Football Con- ference. The game was played before better than 800 fans at Henderson Ball Park Friday night. Schmold and fullback Guen- ther Macht literally ran the Cougars into the ground. The two combined for an amazing 629 yards on the ground as well ES connecting for a 20-yard via the air. Spartans led 14-1 at the half and were in front 27-14 after three quarters. Macht picked up two majors. One on a 20-yard toss from Schmold and another on a full- back's bread and butter play, a three-yard plunge. For the evening Macht ran wilh the ball 16 times for 136 yards for an average of 8% yards per carry. 'Schmold, however, did the most damage. He carried the ball 34 times and amassed an almost unneard of 493 yarc'c. Each time he had the ball he covered more than 14 yards. The brilliant young halfback had touchdown runs of 96 yards, 84, 71 and a short jaunt of 23. Add to these totals his touchdown pass and a 55 yard punt that went for a single and you wonder if he couldn't sell programs and park cars. While Schmold and Macht ANDY CAPr FRED FITZNER MR.
