By PAT SULLIVAN Herald imports Editor Bill Burton, majority share holder and general manager of the Lethbridge Broncos of the Western Canada Hockey League must have had some baseball training in years gone by Burton took the podium Thursday afternoon at the regular meeting of the Southern Alberta Council on Public Affairs and fielded the questions which arose from the sparse gathering flawlessly Rurtori was to give a brief talk un the bemnd the scenes problems facing sports promotions, in par- ticular his Broncos Burton's presentation touched all the bases involved in the operation of his club, baring little known facts regarding what it takes to run a major junior hockey club But the first thing Burton did was clear the air on reports the club is in financial troubles, badly in need of or more fans per game "Let's just clear the air, "he said, "we have no great financial problems We are getting great support There was an apparent misunderstanding between a portion of the media and club officials concerning the dollar status of the club Burton's rundown on junior hockey shows that very few clubs make money He indicated that in the WCHL possibly Calgary and Medicine Hat were self suppor- ting He also pointed out that he hoped Lethbridge would be able to as well A breakdown of just what it costs a team to operate in junior hockey shows that fan support is indeed the key Some income is derived from the sale of programs but not nearly enough to defray the ex- penses As an example, Burton explained that his club this year will spend over in players' salaries bus and air travel will total or more, hotels and meals run as high as for a season equipment will run and scouting another Add to this rental payments of for the year and you have a fair idea of what money is spent on a junior club in a season And as Burton stated "we have a fairly attractive rental agreement with the City of Lethbridge "A well run junior hockey club is the best advertis- ing a city can continued Burton "The city's name is in a majority of the papers, on the radio and on TV in most cities in Western Canada On the subject of a young man's education while playing a 70 game schedule Burton pointed out that some boys do strive to get an education while playing He cited as examples almost 20 per cent of the players who want an education do go to university while the high school attendance total can reach as high as 50 per cent Junior hockey is a pretty big gamble Very few peo- ple make any money at it Most teams strive to keep their heads above water "You can get a lot of satisfaction from a junior hockey said Burton "You meet a lot of interesting people Some of them are rogues, but you find that anywhere When questioning from the floor began Burton cleared up the misconception that the Broncos receiv ed a cut from the take at the concession stands "The sole recipient of concessionaire money is the City of he said There is no doubt the Broncos would love to have a share of this very lucrative income, but it is out of the question Do the Broncos, in salary payments reach minimum wage9 While no actual survey has been made Burton pointed out that as junior players these young men are serving what would be an apprenticeship and that what they are paid would very likely meet minimum wage standards As well, outside of room and board the team pays for all medical expenses, tuition to high school and un iversity and fully equips each player with the necessary tools of his trade Does a hockey coach or general manager make mis- takes' "We all make chuckled Burton "The hardest thing in the world to do is realease a young man you felt had potential But you must be honest with the boy Yes, we have been known to make mis- takes Does Burton agree with the apparent trend to muscle in pro hockey and a move away from finesse9 'I'm still a finesse man, but a team today does re- quire more muscle than before, answered Burton It isn't absolutely necessary to have a lot of it to win Finesse is still important' Burton is proud of his Broncos, proud to be a citizen of Lethbridge and proud of his baseball background It all helped him keep his
