In Wednesday's edition of the Lethbridge Herald four teams were discussed very briefly. A resume of the remaining four squads are as follows. MAGRATH The Zeniths are a hustling ball club with solid rebounding ability. Top notch ball players such as Kevin Ron Ted Haynes and Tim Rollingson will be the key to their success. The Zeniths recently captured their own invitational tournament by edging Raymond by two points in the final. Zeniths also shoot well from the outside and use their fast break to great advantage. Should do well in the tournament. SIR WINSTON Could be considered the tourney favorites. Lineup bolstered with veterans who helped the Bulldogs capture the 1972-73 Alberta boys' cham- pionship title.. REGINA Have held their own in the LCI tourney in re- cent years. Marauders will be led by Novak who led the team to a strong finish in their league play last season. VALIER Have the poten- tial to upset any ball club in the tourney. Defeated Sir Winston Churchill 40-39 last season but suffered losses to LCI and CCHS. Perhaps the underdogs this weekend. ANGELS GO DAYSIDE ANAHEIM Califor- nia Angels said Wednesday that in an effort to conserve energy they have reduced by 12.3 per cent the number of home games requiring lighting at Anaheim Stadium during the 1974 American League baseball season.

As in yean each club in the eight team league will have a 14 came scheduled which is baaed on a home-and -home series. Once again the participating wUTinclude the Winston Churchill Coaldate Stirling Vaux- hall Fort MacLeod Milk Picture Butte and Taber. The biggest season opener set for this weekend will feature the defending pennant champion WCHS'Bulldogs and the defending zone champion Coaldale Kate Andrews Gaels. The Gaels are also the defending provincial boys champs. The two clubs will open their season schedule Friday night with the Gaels acting as host for the encounter. Meanwhile the Gaels could possibly have another cham- pionship club if they are able to play up to their potential this season. The Coaldale club is ladened with talent and depth which are the main ingredients for a championship ball club. In the Gaels have so much talent that coach Pius Labolevech is a little worried. As he put have a lot of but of course having a lot of talent is just as big a problem as having no talent at For we have good several potential top scorers and possibly the best bench strength I've ever had at Kate Andrews and this could lead to problems. Leading the way for the Gaels this season will be the likes of returnees Richard Walt Mike Ewald George Jim Martens and Jake Steinbrenner along with centre Brian King and David Janzen. Both King and Janzen toiled with the Gaels two years ago but sat out last season. Meanwhile the 1973 74 Southwest Conference Girls' Basketball League season will also open its schedule this weekend and the Coaldale Larks are ready for action. The Larks will meet bead on with the Winston Churchill Griffins in their season opener Friday night at seven o'clock. This match will be staged at the WCHS gymnasium. The Larks have waited four long years for another provin- cial girls championship title and coach Lei Santa feels the time has finally come. Santa feels his 1973 74 roster is potentially the strongest girls' team be has coached in his nine years at Kate Andrews and has thoughts of going all the way to the provinciaitiue. The Larks will definitely not lack height as they average some two inches over five- feet. Four returnees bolstering the lineup will be led by sharp shooting Bonnie Sandra Cynthia French and Sandra Vaselenak. With talent iike Santa's predictions may just be right on. Co-captains Co-captains Richard Boras and Walt Zielinski will lead the way for the Coaldale Kate Andrews Gaels this season as they seek the Southwest Conference Basketball League title. They open their 1973-74 season Friday night. now FROM MADE-TO-MEASURE SUITS 89 Suit prices may seen high these but they're nothing compared to the steep prices experts arej predicting for the near future.
