Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - November 11, 1970, Lethbridge, Alberta J.4 THE UTKBRIOOE HE.RAID Wednesday, November 11, 1970 ANDY CAPP I'VE NEVER 'AD A MOMENT'S WOR -CANXOU 'IM MEET1N NO INTEREST, THAT'S fOU: VcRAAIGHT AT LEAST-SAV WATCH YfR-SrfiP SAO COMPANY; Following big weekend McDonald alone 011 top Lanny Macdonald of Leth- bridge 'Sugar Kings has gained a seven-point lead in the scor- ing race of the Alberta Junior Hockey League. Statistics released Tuesday show Macdonald with 16 goals, tops in the league, and 17 as- sists for 33 points. Tied in sec- ond place with 26 points are Off-track bets to hurt gambling By GR1MSLEY NEW (AP) It you bet on a longshot in a horse race, asks Jimmy The Greek, what would you rather get or perhaps ?100? "Of course you'll take the said Jimmy (The Greek) Snyder, well-known Las Vegas odds-maker. "That's why New York's off- track bettiiig is bound to suc- ceed. It will be a real knock- down blow to organized gam- bling." The suave Nevada price maker, whose line on athletic contests and political races has become a national institu- tion, came to New York at the imitation of Howard Samuels, millionaire president of the New York City Off-Track Bet- ting Corp. The city is preparing to set up legal horse parlors around the city and move into compe- tition with bookies, who alleg- edly pocket millions from ille- gal gambling operations. The first betting windows are scheduled to open Jan. U. The city hopes, after a year or so, to start realising be- tween million and million a year to be used for education, relief and other benefits. Your NEW Authorized Dealer JEEP" TRUCKS AND STATION WAGONS UNITED MOTORS CO, LTD, Cor. 3rd Ave., 3rd St. 5. Phone 327-1418 Jimmy the Greek, dapper in striped shirt and blue suit, joined Samuels in a news con- ference at the corporation headquarters at which the aims and the problems of the off-track betting project were explored. The wizard of odds said the project is certain to be a suc- cess because the bettor will prefer to make his wager at a legal city parlor than on the sly through a bookmaker. "It's an education prob- Snyder said. "When people realize they can walk in and make a bet, they will start doing it. Furthermore, they will get interested in horse racing." Jimmy the Greek said that. But the city parlors and the people and not the bookies will make the odds. "The bookies have a limit of 36 to 1 on the odds they'll he added. "With so many people playing the horses, there will be tremen- dous overlays, and some horses wilt pay 50 to 1 up to maybe 100 to I.

His minor pro career in St. Louis and Dallas and a brief jliiit with Chicago Black Hawks of the National Hockey League showed him to be a dedicated, aggressive performer. F o u r t o o n months ago, lie gained national prominence while playing with St. Louis Blues in an exhibition game at Ottawa. Wilh on.e swing of his stick, he fractured the left side of the skull of Ted Green of Boston Bruins. Green, near death for several cloys, returned to the Boston lineup this year. Maki, demoted shortly after the incident, found his way back inot the league this year with Vancouver Canucks and Tues- day night visited Boston Garden for the first time.

Phone 327-4210 "QUAllir AT IOWER PRICES" Inside Hockey 4 SK any National Hockey League goaltender and he'll tell you that one of the hardest shots in the if not THE hardest belongs to Dennis Hull, the Chicago Black Hawks' left wing. Dennis, otherwise known as the "Other" Hull, has skated in virtual obscurity since he became a big-leaguer six years ago. Being Bobby's kid brother has had its problems for Dennis but few realize it lias' had its virtues as well. "If it wasn't for says Dennis, "I probably wouldn't be hi the NHL right now. Bobby was in the NHL when I was still playing Junior B hockey and I KNOW that scouts came to watch me only because of Bobby." The younger Hull, who will be 26 on Nov. 1Mb, was not an especially prolific junior player. In fact, ho often appeared to be imlitantly phlegmatic until Bobby gave him an injcc- ticn of spirit. "After two bad years of junior hockey I was gelling pretty Dennis recalls, "and that's where Bobby saved me. AVhen I returned home I told him 1 had tost my confidence. "He took me aside and said, 'Listen, Dennis, you've been playing against guys who've been a lot older than you. Go back next season and I can tell you you'll score 20 goals." So I went back and I scored 20 goals. A year after that 1 scored 43 goals and I was invited to the Chicago Black Hawks' camp." Being Bobby's brother helped lift Dennis to the NHL but it couldn't help produce enough goals to suit him. He scored only ten in his rookie year and was dispatched to the minors during the following season. Once again he suffered a large case of depression until he attended a Hull Family party during the Summer at Pointe Anne, Ontario. "Bobbv knew I was feeling says Dennis. "Sometime during the middle of the party lie got up and told everybody that I was going to get 25 goals hi my next NHL season. "My father, who's a real needier, thought that that was very funny. He shouted, 'Oh, yeah, he'll be lucky if he's IN Chicago.1 Well, Ihs wildest thing about it was that I DID get 25 goals (in 1866-67) and it convinced roe that my brother is a prophet." Dennis makes it clear that while he never viewed his older brother as a rival, Bobby did, unknowingly, act as a catalyst. "When I saw what kind of shot he had developed with the Black Hawks I made up my mind I'd try to do as says Dennis, "So, I'd practice shooting all the lime; even in the Summer. "I sot up a special target near our house made up of a sheet of tin and a piece of linoleum. I'd shoot Hie puck at that all the time. What I didn't do and what Bobby was develop my skating. I never worked at it the way he did and I suffered for this later on in the Quite often brothers and sons of stars have difficulty living up to the family's sporting name. It's teen said Maurice "Rocket" Richard's son, Maurice, Jr., couM never make it as a pro hockey player because of the illustrious Rocket's name. This was not the case with Dennis Hull, "I never felt any pressure because I was Bobby's kid he insists. "Sure, some people have degradingly re- ferred to me as 'The Other Hull' but that doesn't bother me. The important thing is that I've been in the NHL for six years because I'm good enough; not because of Bobby." To even a casual observer it's obvious that Benin's Hull lias made the adjustment to life in the shadows of Bobby and made it well. "Some people have made it clear to me that they regard my situation as Dennis concludes. they'll say, 'it must be lough being the Golden Jet's kid brother.' "Naturally, a man must make some emotional adjustment and I think I've made mine just the way Joe Dftlaggio's brothers, Dom and Vince, made their's. I'm sure they realized tiiat they weren't going to be as good as Joe.
