Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - November 11, 1972, Lethbridge, Alberta lntvnliy, Novitnbir 11, THE LITHMIDGI HHALD IS Montreal Games in trouble? MONTREAL (CP) Twelve suburban mayors say they fa- vor a referendum on whether Montreal should hold the 1876 Summer Olympic Games. Most said in Interviews Thursday suburban taxpayer! must be told what part of the Game costs the suburbs will shoulder before holding such a referendum. Yves Ryan, mayor of Mon- treal North and vice-chairman of the Montreal Urban Commu- nity said the Games will mean higher police and se- curity costs. Said Bernard Benoit, mayor of Pomte-aux-Trembles: "The population would cer- tainly reject the project if they thought there would be a re- ocurrance of the Wiling of 11 Israeli athletes at the Munich Games in September. Mayor Jean-Guy Chartier of Lachine said it saddened him that Montreal Mayor Jean Drapeau would not "be honest enough. If Mr. Drapeau is a true sportsman and if he is honest, he must approve the holding of a plebiscite on the Games." Mr. Drapeau ruled out the possibility of a referendum Wednesday, saying his re-elec- tion in 1966 and 1970 when the Olympics were part of his cam- paign both were referendums approving the Games. The mayor has maintained the Olympics will not cost more than million. However, he has not said how the Games are to be financed.

The new National Hockey League franchise, which hadn't won at home but previously managed three ties in five games at the Omni, their new ice palace, broke the proverbial ice in a big way Friday night. The Flames scored four third-period goals to swamp the visiting Minnesota North Stars 5-1 and move into a fourth-place tie with Pittsburgh Penguins in the NHL's West Division. It marked the sixih victory of the season for coach Bernie Geoffrion's young Flames and came with fans in the 278-seat arena. Hockey is new to Atlanta, but the conglomerate of and youngsters put together by Geoffrion and general manager Cliff Fletcher has produced an exciting game that has caught the imagination of the Georgia capital. SURPRISING START The Flames already have nearly season subscribers, and if the facet of the operation hasn't been surprise enough for team management, their lofty position in the standing is. "Sure, I'm Geoff- rion says. "We took young hockey players and molded them. "I'm vecy strict on discipline. I want hard work. I just have to make them believe they're good. I have young players. They're very talented. "I push them and I want them Lo believe in themselves. Then they play for me. If not, they go." One ot Hie big shooters on Gcoffrion's Flames, Bob Loiter, is hardly a rookie. But the 31- year-old veteran is playing like one after years on the fringe of the major circuit with Boston Bruins and Pittsburgh. Loiter scored twice against the North Stars and brought his season's total to nine in 16 games. He scored only 14 in his first full season with Pittsburgh last year. While the Flames are a sur- prise fixture in the West race, the division leaders, Los Ange- les Kings, hope to stretch their unbeaten string tonight In Mon- treal against the Canadiens, leaders in the East. The Kings, with eight straight wins and a tic, are three points in front of Chicago Black Hawks and Philadelphia Fly- ers. The Flyers are at home WHA will sue NHL OTTAWA (CP) The World Hockey Association has filed an unfair labor practice suit against the National Hockey League Players Association and its representative Allan Eagle- son. WHA president Gary David- son told a news conference here Thursday Eagleson has re- ceived benefits" from NHL management. He said that Bobby Orr En- terprises, who Eagleson is asso- ciated with, had received bene- fits from the NHL because Orr Enterprises controlled some television rights to the recent Canada-Russia hockey series. "In the United Stales, if you have labor representatives who receive benefits back from management it invalidates your contract." he said. He said the WHA -would to invalidate all NHL contracts because Eagleson, as represen- tative of the players associ- ation, had received benefits from management. Davidson did not bin what benefits Bobby On- Enlerp-iscs or Allan Eagleson had received. Eagleson was not available for comment at his Toronto law office Friday, but he had said when Bobby Orr Ente-prises announced its involvement with the Canadian-Soviet hockey telecasts in August that Bobby Orr Enterprises would not take any revenue from Uie scries. He said all profils would po to Hockey Canada which o 'pan- the Canada-Sovicl series and to Ihe NHL Players Associ- nlion. against Buffalo Sabres tonight while Pittsburgh entertains Vancouver Canucks, Toronto Maple Leafs visit St. Louis Blues. California Golden Seals are at New York Rangers did New York Islanders at Minne- sota. The Flames return to the Omni Sunday against Van- couver, Montreal is in Boston, LOB Angeles visits the Rangers, SULLY SAYS -By Pat Sullivan A BIT OF EVERYTHING Richard Boone, of "Have Gun, Will Travel" fame, tells the story about his good friend Archie Moore and an irate driver in Los Angeles. .Moore did something to anger this particular driver and the guy graphed Moore by the collar and began yelling obscenities at him and call- ing him racial names. .The guy suddenly stopped and said, "Say don't I know you from Brushing the man's hands off, Moore said, very gently, "you ain't talking like you do." Alan Eagle- son, in all his wisdom, angered even me the other day with his remark regarding a proposed Russian hockey tour in January. .He doesn't think the Rus- sians should be allowed to meet the top four clubs in the National Hockey League, Montreal Canadiens, Boston Bruini, New York Rangers or Chicago Black Hawks. the Russians beat those clubs they could go home and say they're the world's best" Eagleson is in favor of letting the Russians play the California Seals. "If they beat California, who he said I wonder if he would say the same for the Detroit Red Wings or Buffalo Sabrts, teams who have players he .Sam Bailty, former coach of Tampa Univeriiry, described a prospect he tried to recruit "He was an interior lineman. He was as big as a gorilla and as strong as a gorilla .Now, if he had been as smart as a gorilla, he would have been just fine." .And did you know that Paul Hen- derton of the Toronto Maple Ltafi hauls down nearly a year with the Leafs? I was stunned when I read that. .Harland Svare, San Diego Charg- ers' coach, when interrupted by a ringing telephone during his speech before a weekly media luncheon jokingly said "If no one answers, it's Duane Thomai" Maybe it's just a psychological trick on Ray Jauch's part but the Edmonton Eskimo head coach surprised me the other day when he said "I've been disappointed with a few of our veterans in certain areas." .Despite the fact the Eskimos dressed in the emergency room of the Edmonton General for most of their games, they won 10 games and finished with the best record they have had in the past 11 years .Jauch just had to be kidding when he said that. .What about Leo Cahlll? .He wasn't sure a record of just three wins and 11 setbacks was cause enough to be fired. Most reports out of the east say he was lucky to last until the season ended. Maybe he hung on because he had a chance to get into the playoffs even though his club's record stunk out the east. Where will you be when you are John Ladd, equipment manager for a university football team in Vermont, has missed only five days' work in the last 10 years despite certain possible distractions. The 90-year-old youngster helps manage a 175-acre farm and has 15 great grandchildren. .How do you figure Sherm Chavoor, the Sacramento coach who de- veloped Mark Spiti, Debbie Meyer and other Olym- pic swimmers, fell out of a boat 20 feet from shore and was taxed trying to make it to safety. When Vic Stasiuk, coach of the Vancouver Canucks of the National Hockey League, and Joe Crozier of the Buf- falo Sabret of the same fraternity, get together the emphasis is on defence. .At one stage of a recent game there were nine defencemen on the ice. Stasiuk, who later said "you might think coaches are had five blueline performers on the ice for a power play effort and Crozier countered with four defencemeu to offset the scoring bid. .Oakland Athletics and yours truly have a great deal in common.. We both received figures beginning in two for our World Seriej efforts. I fell, somewhat short of the better than the Athletics pocketed as I was able to beat boss Don Pilling for only two dollars. If Stan Maxwell coaches in the same manner as he competed, the Lethbridge Native Sons are in for a long, hard sea- son. .The Sons, competing in the Central Alberta Junior "B" Hockey League, look it on (lie chin 9-3 and 10-2 last weekend. .Maxwell is not used to losing As a player his abundance of talent allowed him to play for some good hockey clubs and I'm sure he expects to round the Native Sons into just that, a pood hockey club.
