Starred in hockey, lacrosse Newsy Lalonde dies at 83 MONTREAL (CP) Edward Cyril (Newsy) Lalonde, who made headlines as a Canadian hockey and lacrosse star for 21 years at the beginning of this century, died today at the age of 83. He died in the Montreal Con- valescent Home of complica- tions caused by a hip injury earlier this month. The funeral is to be in suburban Outremont Tuesday in St. Haphael Church. From 1905 to 1926, Lalonde blazed a fabulous career in big league hockey and lacrosse in Montreal, Toronto, Ptegina, Sas- katoon, Vancouver and 'New York. He once scored nine goals in one game and led National Hockey League scorers four times between 1910 and 1921. He is a member of hockey's hall of Janie and was selected ss Can- ada's outstanding lacrosse player of the last half century. Only seven years ago, he told a reporter: "The most astonishing and surprising tiling about my We Regular sliool on tap Sunday The Lethbridge Trap Club will hold its regular monthly registered shoot Sunday start- ing at 10 a.m. Event 1, covers three classes 100 sixteen yard targets.

Even as he was approached lor the interview at the age oE 76, he tried to spring to his feet but had to be helped. "I used to he pretty frisky at one time you know." He was born in Cornwall, Ont, where he is to be buried, on Oct. to French-Cana- dians Pierre and Rose Lalonde. WORKED ON PATEE The nickname of "Newsy" came from his work as a youth at the Cornwall Freeholder where he was first a reporter and then a printer. He began his hockey career in 1905 with the Cornwall junior league, moving on to the senior Ontario Hockey Association club at Woodstock, Ont., the next year where he caught the atten- tion professional team scouts. He made his first Stanley Cup appearance at the age of 20 in 3907 with the Toronto team in the old "trolley" league. But he achieved his greatest fame playing 12 seasons with Montreal Canadiens starting in the 1909-10 season. That first year he scored 38 goals in 11 games to lead all marksmen in the league. He led again in 1916 with 28 goals in 24 games, in 1919 with 23 goals in 18 games and in 1921 with 33 goals in 24 games. Jiy LLOYD YiYMAGlSIH i Herald Sports Writer The old saying "it's never over until the final gun" hold true Friday evening fpr the Univer- sity of Lethbridge Clu'nooks. Chinooks were a mere four seconds from victory but watched their happiness turn into a nightmare with a flip of a wist. University of Winnipeg hand- ed the Chinooks a 78-77 set- back Friday evening at the Civic Centre before some 500 fans in the opening game of the Western Canada Intercol- legiate Athletic Association Basketball League for both clubs. Meanwhile the University of Lethbridge gals gained a split for the locals by dumping the University of Alberta Pandas 57-47. Chinooks, male variety, face another challenge Monday eve- nir.g "t the Civic Centre at eight when they meet the pow- erful University of Manitoba Bisons. The gals play host to the Pandas again this evening at the Civic Centre at eight o'clock. In the Chinook-Winnipeg en- counter the locals hung onto a slim one-point lead, 77-76, with M second left in the game, af- ter battling back from a 47-12 deficit at halftinie. Chinooks ap- peared on their way to victory before fate took a part in pro- ceedings. Chinooks had possession of the ball in Winnipeg territory but lost it on a turn over. With 19 seconds left the visitors call- ed a time out. When the ball was put back into play Chi- nooks thwarted the 'Winnipeg attack not allowing the visitors an opening. Then it happened. With see seconds left on the clock Clark Sloan fouled Win- nipeger Barry King. The Man- itoba sharpshooter missed his free throw and the ball went to Peter Kootchin. The Leth- bridge forward, in an attempi to catch Winnipeg napping whipped the ball down court but ths ball was grabbed off by Pick Stefanysheyer who sunk his only two points of the game and in the process sunk the Chinooks, Tim Tollestrup and Brian San- ders combined brilliantly for the Chinooks in their bid to give first-year coach Logan Tait a win. Tollestrup rattled the backboards for 34 points white Sanders was right behind with 31. Tollestrup was also a tower of strength on the backboards picking off 15 rebounds. King hooped 24 points for the visitors while Bob Allen chipped hi with 17. In the Chinook-Panda battle the locals looked sharp in hand- ing the Edmonton squad a set- back. Chinooks led 2M4 at halftima and never looked back. Leona Voth, a standout last year, led the way with 18 points while Jay Dalilgren and Minnie Van Dicren each added 15. For the Pandas, Nancy Mel nychuk canned 14. Linda Phil- lips helped out with 12. In other conference openers the University of Alberta Gold- en Bears downed the Bisons 67-58 while the University of Victoria Vikings bombed the Regina Campus Cougars 03-35. At half-time, the Golden Bears led the Bisons 35-30. Angus Burr hooped 23 points for the Bisons, 13 in the sec- ond half, but it wasn't enough to close the gap. Alberta guard Bob Bain led the Bisons with 20 points while Larry Nowak added 13 and Wallace Tollestrup hit for 10. The Vikings, taller and more accurate, outclassed Itcgina with Gordon Hoshal leading (lie way with 18 points while Dan Hill was tops for the Cougars with 16 points. p iiiui More sport oil page 16 Minor hockey The Red Wings and Cana- dians emerged with wins in two games played in Bantam "A" action.

IETHBRIDGE Per Monlli O.A-C. coLLeae h AVfUUEA 6rti STREET, STRUT AVIHUl, AlSlRTA fOBLEDEGOOK! That's what we think ot the federal government's state- ment on the new provisional plan for Banff, Jasper, Yoho and Kootenay National parks. In 1966 the battle was over Olympics 72 whether it should be allowed in Banff National Park or not. If the provisional master plan is implemented, it will be possible to hold not only the Olympic games in Banff, but the Grand Prix, the Kentucky derby, Las Vegas style and a 72-band love-in, drug-in, sex-in you name it The introduction to the new provisional policy (not out of ci-alext) says: "What we have sought to establish is a positive, organized and coherent statement of policy. If it is to serve a worthwhile purpose as far as the planners and administrators are concerned, policies must have stability and continuity beyond the term of office of a government, the tenure of a particular group of senior officials or the changing demand o! commercial interests and that's a dandy. Policies must be established only after the most careful consideration and study by national parks branch officials and others. Once established, the basic tenets of policy will not be in danger of change without thorough study and consideration." The provisional plan, proposed for implementation dviring the next 10 years, is described as a kind of white paper on national parks policy. "We can't expand indefinitely because Nature won't tol- erate Ward Stevens of the Canadian Wildlife Service told a news conference in'Edmonton. BUT THE FACT IS that under the provisional plan, between one quarter and one third of wilderness areas of the parks can go. Let's not kid anyone, five-year, 10-year or 20-year plans are subject to review every year, with any and every 'government and with any and every ad- ministration. Ron Malis, acting director of the western parks region said the government "may have to limit vistors and traffic and may have to create public transportation in the parks.' Things could be altered if the public demands it, ac- cording to another spokesman. Public hearings are planned for Calgary, Edmonton and Vancouver in about two months. ONE OF THE MORE mystifying phrases in the provi- sional plan terminology is: "If it is to serve a worthwhile purpose as far as the planners and administrators are con- cerned1 Should that read "road engineers and ad- What about the ccologists? Weren't the ecologists to be a part of the over-all look at parks policy for the future? What happened to their recommendations? In the garbage can? Talk about danger signs! Under Section 4, National Parks Act.the new provisional plan (subject to discussion, it suggests) says: "Afier all, Canada is a young nation and it was not many years ago that a significant percentage of the population lived in or very close to wilderness, or at least in rural surroundings. Even now, many citizens, but not all, are within convenient reach of large natural areas. "There is not at present, among Canadians in general, a strong desire to seek wilderness enjoyment. This seems apparent by the small proportion of park visitors who par- ticipate in hiking, riding and camping in the isolated areas of the parks. The demand of the majority is still for mod- ern accommodation with all the recreational facilities com- mon to life in the cities." TUB STATEMENT GOES on to suggest that perhaps we should learn from the errors of others and recognize certain values now and take account of them in proposing policy on the purpose for our national parks. But, the statement also goes on to say that ths variation in nature and extent of national parks also suggests that certain parks can be subjected to secondary uses, such as artificial outdoor recreation i.e., golf, tennis, lawn bowling, skiing and similar other participant sports, without detract- ing from the basic purposes of the park. HOW ABOUT THIS for a cruncher: the policy state- ment says: "The development of facilities in a pavk to ac- commodate the Olympics or other major sports events is not in accordance rath National Park purposes. If however, a park area is particularly suitable or has necessary char- acteristics are not available elsewhere, the develop ment required by, for example, the Winter Olympics should be permitted in the national interest. Or, the statement says, provision of convention facilities is not a part of the National Park purpose. It is up to private enterprize to provide these facilities. For (he time being, all we can recommend to conserva- tionists is to keep your cool. The War Measures Act is still applicable. WRESTLING EXHIBITION AUDITORIUM MONDAY, NQY, 23 N.A.
