Paul Smithers haunted less nowadays, he likes playing hockey in Shelburne SHELBURNE, Ont. (CP) Paul Smithers will always be haunted by his past but with new surroundings and a new approach to the game he loves most. Smithers is more and more looking to the future. "I don't feel too bad now." he said in a recent interview. "Thoughts still come back and bother me irom to time." Smithers, 18. was charged when he was 16 with man- slaughter in the death of a player on an opposing hockey team in Mississauga. He reac- ted to racial slurs during the game. Smithers, who is black, took part in a fight outside the arena where the game was played and kicked a player on an opposing team during the ottman TRANSMISSION INTERNATIONAL U.S. and Canada COAST TO COAST PREVENT TRANSMISSION TROUBLE with a Guarantee Against Mechanical Failure for 6 Months or Miles.

The player later died. Smithers was convicted by a Peel County jury earlier this year and sentenced to six months in a reformatory. The conviction is being ap- pealed and is expected to be heard by the Court of Appeals early next year. Following the incident in the midget hockey game in Mis- sissauga. he vowed never to play the sport again. Soon after the conviction his family moved out of Mississauga to a 22-acre farm here, 40 miles from his former home. Earlier this week he was se- lected to play for the Shelburne juvenile club. "He was accepted here with open arms." says his new coach John Osborne. There were problems in the beginning, the coach said. Players from other teams hounded Smithers about his reputation and his past convic- tion and league officials kept asking if Smithers was allow- ed to play in the Ontario Minor Hockey Association. "Any kid who wants to play and is good is going to play on my team." Osborne says. "He's a hell of a good hockey player." Smithers has played four league games and has scored six goals but he's not classing himself as a superstar. "I was at the right place at the right time. Others helped score the goals." He finds hockey more enjoy- able to play in Shelburne. "Hockey is clean out here. The officiating is really good and you can never hit a guy here and get away with it. You can get a 10-minute penalty just like that." Players from opposing teams even shake hands after games and Smithers says he can kid around with opposing players after a game and not consider them enemies. A Grade 12 student at Or- angeville District Secondary School. Smithers wouldn't mind taking a chance at professional hockey but he's looking at an opportunity for a college scholarship first.

Mr. Allison, whose works have appeared in numerous Rodeo News editions as well as The Herald, was presented with the Canadian Cutting Horse Associa- tion award. The inscription on the trophy read "To the person contributing the most to rodeo in Canada in 1974 through promo- tion and publicity.

Most of these stories end up buried in last place But. if Friday night's Canada West opener is any in- dication of things to come, the University of Lethbridge Pronghorns are for real. The Pronghorns broke the game wide open on two occasions with their full court press, but the second time it was for keeps as they whipped the highly touted UBC Thunderbirds 89-69 at the U of L gym- nasium. The Pronghorns stormed to a 23 point lead with five minutes remaining in the first half, but the T-Birds battled back to come within three early in the second half before the locals put it out of reach. "Except for the one letdown. I don't think they could have played said coach Robin Fry. and 400 local fans agreed as they gave the Pronghorns a standing ovation at the final buzzer. It looked as if it was going to be embarrassing when the Thunderbirds completely buckled under the strain of Fry's full court press midway through the first half. Trailing only 10-7 eight minutes into the game. UBC's passes suddenly headed only for white jerseys. Sparked by the outside shooting of Curt Wolsey and the inside work of Richard Foggo, the Pronghorns spread the gap to 13 points within four minutes. Then Phil Letham and Lauren Edlund got into the act. and with five minutes showing on the clock, Joey Shackleford's 10 foot jumper gave the locals a 38-15 lead. The last five minutes of the half, however, were a nightmare. The T-Birds came up with a full-court press of their own. and the Pronghorns couldn't buy a basket. Roger Baldry's free throw with a minute left broke a string of 15 UBC points, and it took Gary Paynton's 20 footer at the buzzer to salvage a 41-34 halftime margin. Early in the second half. Foggo broke through a tough. UBC man-to-man defence for three straight baskets, but the Birds gradually closed the gap to 53-50 with 11 minutes left. From there it was all Pronghorns, as time and again the press forced turnovers and resulted in easy buckets Letham fired in three straight baskets and added a pair of free throws in the next three minutes to make it 61-54. and by the time he scored again with showing on the clock, the Pronghorns led 79-60. UBC pulled out all the stops in the last two minutes with a half court squeeze, but the Pronghorns refused to buckle, stalling away the time with no trouble. Letham finished with 24 points to lead the local at- tack, while Wolsey was next in line with 17. Foggo wound up with 15 points on an incredible 88f; shooting performance from the floor, and Edlund chipped in with 12. Steve Pettifer's soft jump shot netted him 26 points for UBC. Randy Allan was the only other Bird in dou- ble figures with 10 The Pronghorn press forced an amazing 38 tur- novers by the Thunderbirds. while Fry's club erred on only 28 occasions. A definite disadvantage in height did not seem to hurt the Pronghorns too much on the boards. UBC got nine rebounds from 6'11" Mike McKay, but edged the locals only 38-32 in this department Wolsey had seven rebounds to lead the Pronghorns. The two clubs meet again tonight at 8 30 at the University gymnasium. In women's action, the UBC Thunderettes built up a 44-20 halftime lead and coasted to a 71-41 triumph over Jack Lilja's Pronghorns. Carol Turney led UBC with 24 points while Kathy Peacock with 13 and Georgina Lester with 10 led the Pronghorns. The Pronghorns turned the ball over 41 times during the contest compared to 22 times for the Thunderettes. In Edmonton, the University of Alberta Golden Bears erased an early 16-pomt deficit to defeat University of Vikings 81-59 The Bears trailed 20-4 with gone, but came back to trail only 37-32 at the half, and dominated the final 20 minutes. Doug Baker led the Bears with 26 points while Lome Dakin was tops for Victoria with 12 points. Tom Bishop scored 30 points to lead the University of Calgary Dinasours to an 85-73 win over University of Saskatchewan Huskies in another Canada West University Athletic Association opener Friday night Roger Ganes had 21 points to lead Saskatoon, who led 38-36 at the half In other Canada West women's action, the Victoria Vikettes dumped Alberta Pandas 59-38 and the Saskatchewan Huskiettes overran Calgary Dinnies 83- 31. HOOP SHOTS Once again the Pronghorns were led by the trio of Letham. Wolsey and Foggo. but. as Fry emphasizes, ''it was a super team effort" whatever it was. it certainly is entertaining basketball Foggo is really something for a kid just out of high school his first step on a drive is amazingly quick, and several times he left T-Birds glued in their tracks Wolsey. a 6'3" forward, demonstrated his leaping ability when he rammed the jump shot of Bob Dunlop back down his throat Fry is still afraid to get too optimistic he cautions that every time his club won a Friday night contest last year, they stunk the place out on Saturday one can't discount the Thunderbirds. who are a fine club who just happened to run up against a really fired-up Pronghorn effort Keep a It used to be that only busi- nesses leased cars from dealer- ships.
