Canadians have set their] sights too low in sports, says n 23-year-old Lethbridge student who represented Canada in judo at the Munich Olympics. "C a n a i a n athletes don't know what it means to train said Pliilip HUngworth in an interview on behalf of the 1972 Lethbridge United Appeal. "In this country our goal is just to get into the Olympics, while other countries aim to win." Mr. Illingworth, the weight Canadian judo midle- cham- pion, was eliminated in the sec- ond round of Olympic competi- tions tliis summer. What's needed in he said, is: more federal government- sponsored sports; more paid p r o f c s siona! coaches; more "grass roots" or- ganized sports; Indian rodeo set Bruce Ball, Chuck Brcmnon load papers into truck paper Hy JUDI WALKER Herald Slalf Writer There's a driving force that gets The Herald out every day.

It was a large cardboard box filled with what I suspected might be birthday crackers they ..-ere long, narrow green plas- tic bags with something rolled up inside. I didn't want to ap- pear too snoopy, but when John started chucking them out the window, I thought I'd better find out what they were. "Ho, ho, hoi" he chortled making me feel rather foolish.

Most of this trip is on paved roads. After making four stops in Cardston, including meeting a school bus which lakes the papers lo St. Mary's, we hit the again. a The next 70 miles were con- siderably dirtier and far less familiar to me.

This run is about 300 mil long- It goes straight from Let bridge, through the Pass Sparwood and then up to Elk- ford and back. Fred Gladstone, 1EICA secre- ary treasurer, said this adds a true international flavor lo the Indian rodeo circuit because the highest bidder wins the finals rodeo event.

Mr. Illingworth, a third year arts and science student at the University ot Lethbridge, said the value of the Y is that it gives large numbers of young- sters a start in n variety of physical programs.

Canadians must get away from thinking of sports as a separate pursuit and think in- stead of sports as an integral part of everyday life, he said.
