The year, 1973, has been a lean one for the Cougar foot- ball team As of Ocl 1, the Cougars are 1-2 in regular season play, losing 35-0 to Winston Churchill, winning 39-13 over McCoy High of Medicine Hat, and losing 23-1 to their arch rivals, the LCI Rams The Cougars will be out to even their record at 2-2 this coming Friday against the Crescents Heights High ol Medicine Hat.

Dave Jackson, at left-halfback has shown he is a capable sort when it comes to carrying the ball. To help bolster the running game, Steve Devcic was moved to lull-back (from end) and even though he lacks experience the Cougar' coaching staff feels that he will be one of the best backs in the league towards the end of the season.

Stake races for horses By AL COLLETTI NEW YORK (CP) Com- mercial interests now are go- ing all out to tap the rich potential of thoroughbred horseracing. the No. 1 spec- talor sport in North America in attendance The latest scheme outlined Wednesday by a new sports group is a muhi-million-dollar string ol stake races with a ?1- milhon super to the win- on quality used Cars and Trucks 1967 Ford 10 paSScuycT vVayGPi, i3C- tory air, PS.PB, V-8, auto 1967 Impala 2 door HOT auto, PS, PB real sharp unit 1971 Galaxie 500 2 door HOT., PS, PB 1970 For Fairlane 2 door HOT., auto 1970 Chevrolet Bel-air 4 door sedan 1970 Pontiac auto PS, PB, radio 1970 Ton 4 speed, ______radio Sommerfeidt Car Sales 321 13th St. N., Phone 328-9444 ner ot a year-round elimina- tion series. This is all supposed to take place next year at various tracks around the United Slates. But the group admits it has not yet taken the governing body of thoroughbred horseracing into its confidence Eventually. Canadian tracks would run their own super staks series to qualify lor an international super stakes race worth several million dollars in purse money Architect ol the idea is Stan- lord Karp. a former advertis- ing executive and magazine publisher who heads an organ- ization called Super Stakes League Ltd.. with head- quarters in Baltimore He said he had not consulted the Thoroughbred Racing Association (TRAt. which runs the 55 major tracks in the 11 S and Canada. John Day. public relations director of the TRA. said similar ideas had been propos- ed in the pasl but never got off the ground. Day said Karp's plan "was all new to us 'It's hard to tigure." he said. "It would have been simpler for them to come to us Day said the TRA had not been invited to a news confer- ence during which Karp out- lined his plan. ject ol discussion at a full meeting of the IOC which begins here Friday Thomas Keller o 1 Switzerland, speaking on behalf of the federations in his role as president, told the final session that the stringent clauses ol IOC rule 26. govern- ing the eligibility code, must be re-worded Keller also suggested the cost ol luture games be reduced, but without a drop in technical standards He also called on the IOC to take care m its selection of sites for luture games to avoid a repetition of the 1976 Denver situation. The United States city withdrew after oppo- sition at home and the 1976 Winter Games subsequently were granted to Innsbruck. Austria. Lord Killanin of Ireland, IOC president, said the Olym- pic group has had no applica- tion from China to join Lord Killanin said that as soon as an Olympic com- mittee was formed in China that country would be eligible lor entry The Chinese currently belong only to the international ice hockey and skating federations but ap- parently have applied for membership in several oth- ers A country requires membership in five inler- nalional Olympic federations to lorm a national Olympic committee The Japanese Olympic Committee provoked bitter debate with its statement call- ing for Olvmpic membership tor China, which would mean the exclusion of Taiwan. Lord Killanin told questioners no IOC dis- ciplinary action would be taken against the Japanese, but said he felt their inlerven- lion on behalf ol Peking "only got the backs up of the national Olympic committees and others here "We all want China in the Olvmpic movement, but it must come in like any other country. When it takes the proper procedures we shall lollow our rules and study it round the table, but not under pressure Caught in the middle of the China question was Iran, host of next year's Asian Games. Iran and several African states backed the Japanese stand, but most of the Olym- pic federations, including track and field, boxing, swimming and soccer, said thcv would keep their athletes away from Tehran if Taiwan, a member of their federations, were excluded.

Flying Finn dies HELSINKI (AP) Paavo Nurmi. the Flying Finn whose long distance running in the Golden Twenties made him a legend, died here Tuesday at 76. He was the iron man of his age. winning nine gold medals in the Olympic Games at dis- tances ranging from to 10.000 metres and even the cross country, an event no longer on the Olympic program. He competed in three of the Games 1920, 1924 and 1928 and would have made it to a fourth had he not been dis- qualified just prior to the 1932 event at Los Angeles on charges of professionalism. The charge and the ban em- bittered the Finnish star, who ran professionally for a briel period and then became a businessman. However, he remained a national hero A statue of him was erected in front of the stadium which became the scene of the Olympics in 1952 and he was honored on that oc- casion bv being allowed to light the Olympic flame. He was equally popular throughout the world, par- ticularly in the United States where he ran more than 55 races on a cross-country ex- hibition lour. It was Nurmi who put Finland on the world athletic map He broke nearly 20 world records and undoubted- ly would have shattered more liad he not lost his amateur standing.
