Lethbridge Herald (Newspaper) - October 3, 1970, Lethbridge, Alberta 10 - THE LETHBRIDGE HERALD - Saturday, October 3, 1970 His Toe Could Make Difference Gerela Must Start Hitting WELL, HERE GOES NOTHING - Only five riders managed to stay aboard their mounts in the bull riding event as the All-Indian indoor rodeo got under way at the Exhibitoin Pavilion Friday evening. It is hard 1o say if this rider was one of the ones who stayed. After getting the picture the photographer made a quick exit. Indoor Rodeo Opens To 1,500 Connolly Tops In Two Events By GARRY ALLISON Close to 1,500 rodeo fans took In the opening performance of the International All Indian Rodeo Finals in the Lethbridge Exhibition Pavilion last night. The fast - moving affair, sponsored by Herb's Western Wear in conjunction with the Indian Rodeo Cowboy Association, featured the bucking stock of the McGowan Rodeo Co. Bud Connolly of Brown i n g, Montana, current Indian all-round leader, captured top honors in both the saddle and bareback bronc riding events.  Connolly's mark of 73 in the bareback event was one better than that of another Browning rider, Ronnie Bird. Two other riders, Peter Bruised Head, Cardston and Mark Misner of Browning, tied for third with a score of 63. Connolly garnered 76 points in the saddle bronc riding, finishing way ahead of former Calgary Stampede saddle bronc champion, Bob Gottfriedson who scored 67. Sidney Starlight of S'arcee marked a 65. Another Connolly, this time,83, in the Brahama bull riding Cathy, was also a double event winner. She took both the senior and junior girls' ban-el racing honors. Her time of 16.1 seconds in the senior eve^t was three tenths of a second faster than three girls tied in second spot. In the junior barrel race she toured the course in 15.8 seconds, edging out "her sister Susan with 15.9. Rick Reagan of Browning was awarded the highest mark, an competition. Teddy Gottfriedson placed second with a score of 76, three points ahead of third place finisher Ira Tailfeathers of Cardston.

Tonight's show gets underway at 8 p.m. while the final performance goes S'unday at 2 p.m. By THE CANADIAN PRESS Place-kicking specialist Ted Gerela has been stubbing his talented toe lately in the Western Footbal Conference and his ability to boot clutch field goals may be the difference between a playoff spot and an early end to the season for British Columbia Lions. Gerela goes into tonight's game in Vancouver against Edmonton Eskimos with a record of nine straight missed field goals. And with the Lions and Eskimos tied for third place, the last playoff spot, with 10 points each, Gerela knows it's time he started scoring if he wants to stay WFC scoring leader. Although they have a game in hand, the Lions have a rash of injuries and a tough schedule facing them. B.C. still faces an Eastern swing against Toronto and Montreal, and must meet league-leading Saskatchewan, second-place Calgary Stamped-ers and Winnipeg Blue Bombers. The Eskimos play Calgary, Saskatchewan and have two games against the last-place Blue Bombers. MEET ALS Sunday in Regina, the Rough-riders take on Montreal Al-ouettes, who hold first place in the Eastern Football Conference. Saskatchewan has a six-point lead over Calgary in the west with 18 points. Montreal is two points in front of Hamilton Tiger-Cats who play Toronto Argonauts Sunday in Hamilton. Meanwhile, Gerela worked out all week at home with backup quarterback Vidal Car-lin, who took over the holding chores, from injured Rich Robinson, and the lanky kicker was booting goals consistently from 35 yards. Gerela admits he feels a lot better now that he doesn't have to take a regular shift in the backfield this year. "Last year, I was always worrying about the guy getting behind me," he said. "I was under a lot of pressure and it made it even tougher when I had to make a pressure kick. PLAYS BACKUP "This year, I'm more or less backup if someone gets hurt. It takes a lot out of your legs. It's tough to play and kick; you have to specialize." On Sunday, Montreal coach Sam Etcheverry plans to insert Justin Canale, a recent cut from New Orleans Saints of the National Football League, to ban die kickoffs and long-range field goal attempts against Saskat chewan. With Steve Boras out for the season with a knee injury, Walt Highsmith becomes an Alouette defensive end. Roughrider coach Eagle Keys says he'll start Ron Lancaster at quarterback, sore arm and all. "We don't think in terms of Ron being seriously hurt-that he could damage his arm by playing," said Keys. "He's bothered by the arm and it's something he's going to have to live with." Gerela's kicking problems aren't B.C. coach Jackie Parker's only worries, he has some big holes to fill on defence. Tackle Wayne Dennis is cut with a groin injury and defen- sive end Gary Robinson will miss tonight's game after hurting his ankle in practice. That leaves only Bill Sisler, Garrett Hunsperger and John Stucky on the regular defensive line, but Parker may shift all- I star offensive guard Ken Sugar- ' man into the backfield. Parker also has to replace defensive back Ernie Pitts, sbot to death last week in Brighton, Colo. The game will pit the Lions' rushing, best in the West, against the vaunted Edmonton defence, one interception away from a record-tying 11th. Eckman Realizes Gabler Is Waiting In The Wings By THE CANADIAN PRESS John Eckmar., 23-y e a r -o 1 d Hamilton Tiger-Cat quarterback, has two things in the back of his mind as he prepares to start Sunday's Eastern Football Conference game against Toronto Argonauts. The six-foot-two, 195 pounder knows that veteran Wally Gabler is waiting in the wings to replace him if he fails to generate an early Ticat offence. Then there's the recent tragic death of several close friends, including the coach of Witchita State University's football' team and the school's athletic director, who were aboard a chartered plane that crashed Friday in rugged Colorado mountains. | Eckman, a Wichita State alumnus, had been associated with the school following graduation and assisted the team during its spring training program. Thirteen players were killed in the crash of the plane which was en route to Logan, Utah, from Witchita, Ka., where they were to play Utah State today. Eleven players were among crash survivors. It took 29 lives of 40 aboard the craft. A second chartered flight was completed safely. WON OVER LIONS Eckman, backup pivot to Joe Zuger until the veteran quarterback broke his right arm at Vancouver during Ticats' recent Western Canada road trip, guided Hamilton to a victory over British Columbia Lions. But against Edmonton Eskimos three days later, six of his passes were intercepted and the Tiger-Cats were humbled, bringing about Gabler's acquisi-1 tion last weekend from Winnipeg Blue Bombers. Gabler has had little opportunity to digest Hamilton's unique offence in which every back-fielder is in motion, but reports from the Ticat camp Friday indicate he has mastered a couple of their basic formations and is ready to play. The former Argo found expendable during the 1989 season, Gabler wound up in Winnipeg with the WFC cellar dwellers and was relegated to a secondary position with the Blue Bombers this year. Another former Argo, linebacker Allan Ray Aldridge, will be out to show his ex-mates he's EL RANCH0 TEXACO Today! El Rancho Ernie Says . .

"It's a circular that's sent to everyone," said Radford in an interview. "It's not an unusual thing with a team sport, although the letter seems early this time." Radford said Brundage, president of the International Olym pic Committee, indicated that an intensive investigation of hockey players signing the Olympic oath will be carried out by the IOC. Canada pulled out of world hockey competition in 1969, claiming her five co-members in the International Ice Hockey Federation had reneged on an agreement to allow Canada to play nine professionals below the rank of National Hockey League calibre in the 1970 world tournament. as good as ever despite an offseason knee operation that left his playing status in doubt. Argo coach Leo Cahill cut the six-foot-six giant just before the 1970 season rather than chance protecting him, then finding he hadn't healed properly. GAMBLE PAID Ticats took the chance and haven't found him wanting. The Hamilton-Toronto game, scheduled for 2 p.m. EDT Sunday, is one of two scheduled in Eastern Canada this weekend. Ottawa Rough Riders entertained Winnipeg today in an inter-locking Canadian Football League game carried on CBC-TV's national network starting at 11 a.m. MST. Basketball Meeting The Lethbridge City Men's Basketball League will hold its second and final league meeting Monday evening at 7:30 at the Civic Centre. Nine teams have indicated they will take part in the league this year and anyone wishing to enter a team is asked to be at the meeting. League schedules will be draw up at the gathering with the season set to get under way Oct. 14. ANDY CAPP Martin Named Boss By Detroit DETROIT (AP) - Some persons might believe Billy Martin's trademark is fists. However, putting aside his reputation as a perpetual scrapper, the new manager of Detroit Tigers might very well deserve the rare trademark of "honesty." He "tells it like it is" in an age of telling it like it is. With the exception of a few diplomatic departures, Alfred Manuel Martin fielded hours of questions with candid agility after Tiger owner John Fetzer announced at a news conference Friday that Martin had signed a two-year contract to manage the club. One newsman explained that he had staked out a local bar, popular with athletes, in hopes of locating Martin Thursday night. "You were waiting in the wrong place," the 42-year-old Martin smiled. "I wasn't inside. I was out in the alley." The former Minnesota Twins manager was jokingly referring to an incident' last year when he was involved in a fight outside the same bar. Meanwhile in Oakland Dick Williams has jumped on the Oakland Athletics' managerial merry-go-round with orders to keep the baseball players quiet. "No manager can allow a player to criticize the front office unfairly," owner Charles O. Finley said Friday, explaining why lie fired manager John Mc-Naniar and named Williams to succeed him. "He didn't lose his job. His players took it away from him," Finley said of McNamara, 38. It was Finley's 11th managerial switch in 11 years.
