Phom 327-3221 CLOSED MONDAY OpM Hun. A TM 9 p.M. South Alberta tor over 30 Gladstone again in Canada's best are honored By GARRY ALLISON Herald SUff Writer Champions were named for the 29th time by the Canadian Rodeo Cowboys Association recently. Heading the list as the all round king was Pekisko com- petitor Tommy Bews. Bews earned his third all around championship with this pocketing and beating out last years Kenny McLean in the process. The bulk of Bews' winnings came in the saddle bronc event but he is also a for- midable competitor in the steer wrestling and the calf roping as well. Also earning his third Cana- dian title in one particular event was Jimmy Gladstone of Cardston. Gladstone earned to grab his third calf roping championship in the moving him one ahead of his who won two Canadian cham- pionships a few years back. Gladstone also qualified for the National Finals Rodeo in Oklahoma City by finishing 13th in the world standings with a total bank account of This marks the second con- secutive year he has made it to the national the first time a Canadian has turned that trick. Finishing second to Glad- stone in the Canadian stan- dings was Sparky Trotter of B.C. who pressed Gladstone throughout the year but couldn't overtake him. The Canadian saddle bronc riding king for 1973 is young Jerry Sinclair of Lloyd- Sask. This is Sinclair's second trip to the championship circle in this event and in winning this year he beat out defending Cana- dian and world champion Mel Hyland. Sinclair finished 18th in the world but only the top 15 competitors in each event go to the National Finals. Hyland won't retain his world championship this year either but goes to the National Finals in 13th spot in the saddle bronc riding. Pat Sullivan A bit of everything What is the National Hockev Leaeue thinking Last week word out of San Diego was that the owner of the Sports Arena in that California city was willing to pay for the Oakland Seals hockey club But the NHL won't approve the sale They want to buy the Seals franchise from Charles Finley and keep it in Oakland I can't believe it Toronto a wheelchair basketball were saved by the boards recently The 'Bolts were threatened with disband'ment if resources couldn't be found to replace a sponsor that backed out... a lumber company came through and the Thunderbolts are back in business in the National Wheelchair Basketball Association Vancouver is the only other Canadian entry in the 70-team league Next year's pro golf tour pot will be worth a grand total of up a half million from this past year If you divvied that up equally among the 250 tournament it would mean an assured income of Which beats hacking a wouldn't you say7 For all the knocking Charley Finley he cer- tainly livens up the sports but it's doubtful he will stay in baseball due to poor health. Lethbndge friends will be sorry to hear of the passing of Phyl who passed away in B C. last week Mrs Cooke and her husband were familiar faces at the Henderson Lake Golf Club and Lethbridge Curling jClub Geoff wag the club professional and ice maker In the sixties Mrs Cooke was one of the top women golfers in Lethbridge and Southern Alberta Britain's Joe Bugner will fight Muham- mad Ah or Joe Frazier in London next spring in a final elimina- tion bout for a crack at George Foreman's crown Forget it from what we could handle the best two or three of you on the same night I had a delightful chat with a Mrs. Marion Mlnty last week An avid hockey fan in her 80's Mrs Minty wanted the names and numbers of all the players in the NHL watch every game I can here at Blue Sky said Mrs Minty She says she used to know all the players by heart but since expansion there are just too many of them I agree fully and I hope you got the information okay Ed who I used to stand 'em on their ears in local fastball is back in town It seems he is tending bar at one of Lethbndge's eating establishments and would like nothing better than to hash over old times Ar- tificial turf for Winnipeg7 That's the story out of Winnipeg The turf would cost to install but would greatly increase the use of the stadium At present Winnipeg Stadium is used about a dozen times a year while the PNE Stadium at Vancouver is in use over 300 times a year But then Vancouver has very little winter compared to Win- nipeg The National Football League is seriously considering a far out rule change to stimulate the offence Can you imagine a 12th man7 Have no fear friends to the it works -pretty good in Canadian football Speaking of Canadian I didn't get my wish as far as the 1973 Grey Cup winner is concerned I wanted John Ranch to take the Toronto Argonauts all the proving to Toronto supporters Leo Cahill didn't get as rotten a deal as he let on Oh nice guy Jerry Keeling and the Ottawa Ravgh Riders will get to sip the sweet cider of success come Nov. 25 in Toronto Also on tap for that particular weekend is the Grey Cap Rainbow Bonsplel at the Lethbridge Curling Club. Scott Henderson and his local mates won all the marbles last year in what Earl Francis called greatest upset of the Hyland placed 13th in the world all round standing as well and is the 17th best bareback rider in the world according to this year's stan- For the fifth year in a row Dale Trottier is the Canadian bareback bronc riding champion. He earned in Canada this year and beat out veteran Jim Clifford for the title Trottier was hampered early in the year with a broken hand but recovered well enough in mid-' season to win the title once again and also climb to 16th spot in the world standings. There is a slight chance Dale may make it to the National but only if one of the top 15 riders are injured and unable to compete. Veteran Leo Brown of Alberta won his fifth bull riding and eighth major championship in Canadian rodeo during his long career. Brown finished ahead of Rocky Hubley in the race for the title. Though he finished well down in the Canadian bull riding Brian Claypool did well in the world placing 16th overall. With all the repeat cham- pions in Canada this steer wrestling champion Phil Doan must feel slightly ill at ease. the 1971 Canadian Cowboy of the grabbed his first championship of his career. He just edged another veteran Arnold in a very close race for the championship. While didn't do as well on the world scene they have in the put one Canadian managed a first. Pretty Jeri Duce of Granum became the first gal to ever make it to the national finals in the barrel racing event. Miss Duce placed 14th in the earning When the whole year is summed only Jimmy Gladstone and Mel Hyland will represent the Canadian men at the National Finals but there is a chance those finishing in 16th or 17th spot could move into the finals. Some familiar faces to Southern Alberta rodeo fans are going to the Finals. Darryl the little Chinese- Australian who broke in on the Southern circuit is in the top five in the world saddle bronc standings while Marvin Joyce another famimliar face up is in the top 10 in the same event Former Canadian Marty is again in the top 15 bronc riders in the world. Ernie Dorin won his fifth straight Canadian wild horse racing trophy saddle and Pat McHugh won yet another wild cow milking crown. Jim Freeman is the 1973 permit award Lee Phillips is the rookie of the and the amateur saddle bronc title went to Jim Kelts. Dave Lewis was the top chuckwagon driver of the year In over 55 rodeos in Canada approved by the cow- boys competed for over 000 in prize money. Fleischhauer scores four Rudy Fleischhauer took over the lead in the Commer- cial Men's Broomball League as he scored four times in leading the Red Devils to a slim 5-4 victory over the Jaycees Sunday night Fleischhauer's four-goal outing boosted in his scoring total to seven which is just one better than last year's scoring champion Tom Beresnak of Welterlich who has six. Third place in the individual scoring race is held by John Vaselenak of Welterlich and John Seaman of Sunburst Ceramics with five goals apiece while another Welterlich player Tom Virostek is in fourth with four. Meanwhile in Sunday's the Red Devils came up with five consecutive goals to narrowly defeat the Jaycees. .Fleischhauer fired in the last four goals while Otto Fomradas tallied the first WCHS faces Nationals The Winston Churchill High School teachers along with a few recent graduates will take on the Harlem Nationals in an exhibition basketball game tonight. Suiting up for the local school in the eight o'clock en- counter will be the likes of Pete Colin Mitch Forester and Larry Holland. Bob Noss led the Jaycees with a pair of markers while Rick Saito and Bob Rutten aided with singles In another league Beresnak and Vaselenak registered hat-tricks in leading the league-leading Welterlich to an astounding 10-1 win over Fiorinoi Rovers. Gunner Crawford and Virostek chipped in with two goals apiece while Allan Pen- nington replied for the Rovers Tom Boychuk and Butch Lee tallied two goals each and propelled the Fire Depart- ment to a 4-0 decision over Local 740 Ken Mercer and Marv Imeson combined to score the shutout in the nets for the Fire Department who recorded their first win of the season In three other games staged Lethbridge Hotel edg- ed the Knight Clubbers Sunburst Ceramics dropped the Lethbridge Correctional Institute Mavericks and Herman's Upholstery and Southern Signs battled to a scoreless tie. Max Whiteford tallied the lone goal scored in the Lethbridge Hotel-Clubbers en- counter while Leo Matteotti picked up the shutout In Sunburst's 3-1 Bob Eugene Yamada and Bill Ressler notched single markers for the winners while G. T. White Man replied for the Mavericks Phil continues to score while Tony kicks them out MONTREAL While centre Phil Esposito of Boston Bruins keeps pumping pucks behind opposing National Hockey League netminders at a phenomenal his with Chicago Black keeps kicking them out in equally sensational fashion. Statistics released by the league today show Phil with 19 goals in 15 the hottest scoring pace turned in by any player in the modern era of the NHL. Joe Matone was the league's most torrid goal scorer. Malone had 44 goals m 20 games with Montreal Canadiens in 1917-18. Along with his Phil Esposito has 15 assists for 34 points in the current scoring race. Left winger Richard Martin of Buffalo who is second in goals with shares second ipot with Boston defenceman Bobby Orr. Each has 24 with Right winger Ken Hodge of the Bruins is fourth with 21 one more than centre Norm Ullman of Toronto Maple Leafs and right winger Yvan Cournoyer of Montreal Ullman and Cournoyer each have 10 goals. But Tony Esposito appears determined to give Bernie Parent of Philadelphia Flyers a battle for top goaltender honors and the Vezina and at the same time grab some of the headlines being accrued by brother Phil. But neither one will get the chance to improve their status tonight as only two games are scheduled. In the Van- couver Canucks visit the Blues at St. while Minnesota North Stan travel to Pittsburgh to face the Penguins. Tony appeared in coal for all three of West Coait games last week and allowed only one goal out of 61 Morns a former member of Canada's now- disbanded national scored a short-handed goal against Esposito at of the third period to allow California Golden Seals a 1-1 draw with the Hawks Esposito hasn't been scored on as he registered suc- cessive shutouts against Van- couver Friday and Los Angeles Sunday by 4-0 and 3-0 margins. That gives him a shutout streak of 127 one sec- ond and raised his season shutout total to same number he recorded in 56 appearances last season. It also lowered his goals-against average to 1.64 from 2.00 one week ago. Esposito now is only one shutout behind Parent and has allowed just one more although Parent has played one more game. Of the 18 shutouts turned in by 36 far this Parent and Esposito have one half of them. A P Mm 15 34 A 13 11 24 4 16 24 12 Hodge.

Gordon Tait chipped in with two goals while singles went to Grant John Allan Duval and Ken Romaniuk. Lonny with and Craig Rust and Murray Paskall replied for Brooks In Bantam B action the Seals had to settle for a pair of 3-3 deadlocks in weekend ac- tion. Saturday John Bill Orr and Ken Burla scored as they drew with the Rangers who got two goals from Murray Houghton and a single by Peter Robb. Sunday Dennis Taylor and Gordon Pender matched goals by Brent Bill Rab and Andy Kessler of the Blazers. In a Little Spud Midget Hockey League game staged Medicine Hat Cablevision defeated the Lethbridge Colts 5-2. Mark Mast and Drew Turn- back rammed in two goals apiece to pace the Gas City club while Leroy Pavan and Rod Olshaski notched a goal each in a losing cause.

Ken Romaniuk chipped in with a pair of goals while Brian Kanewischer added a singleton. Ken Hamilton tallied the lone goal for the Wings who trailed 3-1 after periods. In a Bantam B Darren Pepper notched the first and final goals to pace the Hornets to a 5-0 win over the Argos.

Red Devils are currently two points back of Red Deer in the battle for top spot while the short on ex- perience but getting longer on desire each time are struggling to get out of the league cellar with only three wins thus far. The Devils and Longhorns played twice over the weekend and came up with half a loaf each. The Red Devils edged Red Deer 3-2 before losing 5-2 to Calgary Canucks Sunday night. For the they won 7-5 Saturday and the goal scorers were Ron Krikke with two and singles by Ken Brent Darryl Bruce Small and Darcy O'SulIivan. Goal scorers in Monday's paper were incorrect the Longhorns saw Drumheller Falcons score five unanswered goals in the third period for an 8-2 victory. So the stage is set for another Lpnghorn-Red Devil battle tonight at Henderson Ice Centre at eight o'clock. Meanwhile Kelly Bunn's goal at 4 24 of sudden-death overtime gave Red Deer Rustlers a 5-4 victory over Calgary Canucks in an Alberta Junior Hockey League game Monday night.
