Open home schedule this evening Longhorns ready to go For Stan Maxwell. Don McLean and the Lethbridge Longhorns. the time has arriv- ed for all good men to come to the aid of their teammates. The saying usually goes to the aid of the par- ty." but the Longhorns are not faced with a party but a struggle. Tonight at Henderson Ice Centre at eight o'clock, the Longhorns will take on the Pass Red Devils in an Alberta Junior Hockey League game. The Longhorns are down one game to the Red Devils after dropping a 4-1 decision in Blairmore Sunday night. According to Maxwell, the game could have gone either way with a few breaks Possibly a home crowd can help sway the outcome. The Longhorns played just one pre-season game and it was little more than a good skate as they walked all over a Junior B club from Kimberley Tonight, will be a different 'It's my fault' says Duncan DISCOUNT ON ALL 1973 STOCK 'o to 40% OFF 1973 PRICES Boats, Motors, Trailers and Accessories.

"Il's my Duncan said of the decision to try one more play rather than a long field goal that might have capped a tremendous com- eback effort against Hamilton Tiger-Cats. The Stampeders, down 31-12 at the end of the third quarter, had stormed back to within two points of the Ticats and had the ball on the Hamilton 30-yard line with 18 seconds left to play. Duncan said he considered sending Larry Robinson in at this point to try for a field goal. Robinson had the benefit of a 20-mile-an-hour tail wind. Duncan changed his mind and on the next play Larry Brame broke through the Calgary line to dump quarter- back Peter Liske for a 10-yard loss That pushed the Stampeders back to the Hamilton 40 with 11 seconds remaining.

In Sunday's game, a rough contest for a season opener, the concern over the ability of some of the smaller Longhorns to take the rough going came to an abrupt end. "It was the little guys who carried the play to the Devils." said Maxwell. Longhorns will see action twice at home on the upcom- ing holiday weekend. Saturday night Drumheller Falcons pay a visit to Henderson Ice Centre while Sunday the Red Deer Rustlers will make their first appearance of the year. Spartans lose power It looks as though the 1972 Foothills Football Conference champions are in trouble this season. The defending champion Coaldale Spartans, who were a power-house last year, seemed to have lost their steam and dropped a pair of games last week. Last Wednesday the Ray- mond Comets edged the Spar- tans 9-7 while Saturday Cardston completed the sweep by trouncing the Coaldale squad 27-8. Other games staged last Wednesday saw High River humiliate St. Mary's 70-0 and Claresholm defeated Okotoks 10-7 Meanwhile Raymond picked up their second victory of the week Saturday as they rousted Picture Butte 36-12. Vulcan also slipped past High River 22-12 and Claresholm shutout St. Mary's 20-0 LETHBRIDGE AMATEUR SWIM CLUB Wishes to extend a sincere appreciation to all who do- nated to our 1972-73 Swimathon and also to the follow- ing who so generously donated to our club- The Ladies Auxiliary of the Fraternal Order of Eagles Lethbridge Rose Chapter No. 101 order of the Eastern Star, Picture Butte Kinsmen Club of Lethbridge Knights of Columbus No. 5726 Lethbridge Knights of Columbus No. 1490 Lethbridge Northern Bus Lines Lethbridge You SWIMMERS, COACHES AND PARENTS THE LETHBRIDGE AMATEUR SWIM CLUB Sports bodies lay charge Are Games pointless VARNA. Bulgaria tReuten The International Olympic1 Committee the seli- appomted body which runs the Olympic Games, came under strong attack Monday from other world sports bodies Speakers for international federations which control individual sports, and national committees which govern Olympic sport in their own countries, disputed at the 10th Olympic Congress the way in which the IOC has set its own standards on sport The congress, first since 1930. was called to allow the three groups IOC. federations and national com- mittees which have co- operated in staging the mod- ern forum for de- bate on problems arising-out of the size of the Games and changing conditions of com- petition. Thomas Keller. Swiss presi- dent of the International Row- ing Federation, speaking on behalf of the sports organizations, said the "changed role of sport in modern society and the suc- cess of the Olympic Games have made them (the Games) pointless." He attacked the IOC for try- ing to define conditions of amateurism in sports ot which they had no experience. Communist speakers all supported the Olympic ceremonies. Keller's statement outlined the case which the inter- national federations have drawn up in committees. Most federations now run their own world championships and have expressed a feeling that they can get along without the Olympics it necessary to maintain their independence. Speaking on the eligibility problem. Keller said "everyone interested in sport knows that entries for the Olympic Games have largely become an open exhibition of lying, which is quite incom- patible vvith the ethics of sport." The representative of the International Ski Federation. Philippe H e n c 2 o z of Switzerland, said his body reserves the right to make decisions itself on who should be eligible to compete in Olympic and other inter- national ski meetings. Lord Killanin, Irish presi- dent ol the IOC. promised that under his rule the governing body would give active leadership to world sport. Kilannin said an IOC com- mission has completed a study on the controversial Rule 28 which sets out terms of eligibility for Olympic com- petition. He said he would call a meeting in December with representatives of inter- national sports federations to agree on a new rule which will be accepted by the next for- mal IOC session and be applied to the 1976 Olympics in Montreal. China's future place in world sport may be a major problem which could split Asian countries from the Olympic movement, reliable sources said. There is no debate on the China question on the four-day Congress agenda but there has been continuing exchanges in committees lobbies. Leo the Lip leaves again Irene Thompson Thompson elected president HOUSTON (AP) Leo Durocher became manager of Houston Astros last year on a shot in the missed. Durocher. 67. who has man- aged three World Series base- ball teams, took charge of a team many forecast as a pen- nant contender for 1973. He said in the spring he'd like to take a team all the way one more time. Instead, the Astros tumbled from a second-place finish in 1972 to a disappointing fourth this season in the National League West So. Durocher announced his resignation Monday and general manager Spec Richardson named third-base coach Preston Gomez as his replacement. The official wording said Durocher resigned but it was more likely a retirement for the volcanic Durocher. whose career as a player and manager span about 50 years. "There were no factors in- volved in my resigning." Durocher said. "I feel great. But for someone who's been in baseball as long as I have there comes a time to rest. "My plans for the future in- clude going back to Palm Springs and teeing it up." Richardson told a news con- ference he had tried to talk Durocher out of resigning but his efforts were unsuccessful. Durocher's 13-month tenure with the Astros was far less volatile than much of his con- troversial career.
