Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - October 6, 1973, Lethbridge, Alberta Can't do anything without players Saturday, October LETHBRIOGE HERALO-11 Football fan Industrialist James A. Pattison of Vancouver, owner of the Vancouver Blazers of the World Hockey Association, says he is thinking about bringing football to Vancouver to compete with the Lions of the Canadian Football League.

The Vikings, with a fabled delence built around the so- called Purple People Katcrs. have an impressive record against the Lions, having won II) in a row in the series. But will he meeting a Detroit learn buoyed by new con- fidence and running strength. In healing Atlanta last Monday, the Lions not only ex- hibited traditional defensive strength but cut loose with a si rung running attack. The veteran Met l-'arr rushed for 90 yards and caught four passes for :17 more. A vengeance motive adds excitement to Monday's game between the Redskins and i 'owboys. After splitting their iwo regular season games in 1972. the Redskins beat the Cowboys for the NFC title and the right to play Miami in the Super Bowl.

The Charters will be led into the game by Johnny Unitas. The Los Angeles Rams carry the NFC's best rushing attack, an average of 237 vards a game, against the Oilers at Houston. The Oilers, although without a victory, have a dangerous passer in Dan Pastorim and a tough ball- carrier in Bob Gresham. Buffalo, a pick over Philadelphia, will be attempting to slay abreast of Miami in the AKC Kast. each currently at 2-1. Simpson will be going after bis fourth straight 100-pius yards perfor- mance.

"We had planned to start selling tickets on Monday, but we've called it off." said John Bell, public relations director lor the National Hockey League club. "We won't do anything until we find out for certain whether the Russians are coming or he added. The Soviet Union had made an agreement with the NHL this summer to bring two touring hockey teams to the United Slates in November. However, the NHL said, plans for the tour were snagg- ed when the Russians learned they would have to pay U.S. taxes on the they are to earn for eight games. The laxc's would amount to for the tour. The Russians had agreed to their own travel expenses to and from the United States. While in this country, however, the NHL was to pick up the' tab'lor all travel, food and lodging for the Russians.

Very best brains not needed New York Times NKW YORK With the possible exception of the com- Bowie Kuhn, any most absurdly overrated figure in sports is the manager of a baseball team. The best can't win games and the worst lose precious few. 11 a man has enough executive ability to head the housewares depart- ment in Macy's and knows when to change pitchers, he can manage as well as his troops can play. Nobody can manage better. The most consistently successful these days are Earl Weaver of Baltimore and Sparky Anderson of Cincin- nati. Dick Williams is the only man who ever had pennant winners in his first season on the Atlantic coast and his first season on the Pacific. Danny Murtaugh's tobacco-stained smile has brightened two ballparks and two decades in Pittsburgh. Billy Martin com- manded divisional champions in both Minnesota and Detroit. and Yogi Uerra is the only one besides Joe McCarthy whose teams won in both major leagues. Does anybody seriously believe that any of these is a better manager than Ralph llouk? In llouk's first summer as a large-bore intellectual, not counting three years as apprentice genius in Denver, the Yankees won oftener than they had ever won in 58 years of striving under 15 different leaders. They won the pennant again the next year and the year after that. Now Houk has fired himself because his last eight teams have come up empty. He fired himself in spite of the fact that nobody else now in the business ever brought in three consecutive pennant winners and two world cham- pions, as he did. The only other manager he ever fired was Yogi Berra. Obviously. Ralph doesn't know a good manager when he sees one. Kither that or he became suddenly and perhaps in- curably stupid after 1964. The most successful manager in human history was Charles Dillon Stengel, whose Yankee teams won 10 pennants and seven World Series in a 12-year span. He also managed teams that finished last And when he looked back, he appraised his own achievements with ac- curate detachment. "I couldn't have done it without the players." he said. Houk resigned because the Yankees this year could win only HO games. The Mets won 82 and Berra ijualificd as a miracle worker. Yogi devoted a substantial part of the season to' proving that he couldn't do it without the players, either With the halt and lame healthy, he proved he could do it. Now if the Mets don't make it into the World Series, it won't be because Sparky Anderson is smarter than Berra. It will be because the Reds play better than Yogi's troops three times within the next week. On form, the Reds should be able to do that. They played New York 12 times during the season and won two games out of three, eight games to four. The Reds' won-lost record of .till, was the best in baseball: the Mets' 82-79. .508. was fourth best in the National League However, back to Houk Here is a man of 54 who was accustomed to command at 24 No manager enjoys greater rapport with his players. He does not coddle them or punch them in the face He does not go out drink- ing with them or berate them before other's. They know he will never humiliate them or fail to back them up or claim persona! credit for their success. His relations with press and public are unfailing- ly cordial Some club will be lucky to get him. and if the players arc good enough they will win with him. And the Yankees'.' The devout hope here is that Klston Howard succeeds llouk. Authority sometimes changes a man unpredictably. but it says here that Howard has the temperament, ex- perience, judgment and per- sonality to tit the job. lie was an outstanding player with the disposition ami intelligence to realize full potential. He has always enjoyed great personal pop- ularity without sacrifice or dignity or privacy He was the first black player on the Yankees and the first black coach in the American League but the yive him they'll be majors manager Neither him the Yankees shouldn't llouk's job just so the first team in the to have a black should they deny job for fear they might some day have to be the first to lire a black manager. Sooner or later all managers yet lired. I'ntil that time came lor Klston Howard, soon or late, lie would bring the Yankees something no team can ever have too much of. nor anv individual. That's Another Hurdle passed Montreal no longer a worry By AL McNEIL VARNA. Bulgaria (CP) The organizing committee lor the 1976 Summer Games in Montreal apparently has pass- ed its latest hurdle in fine form following an astute ex- amination by the Inter- national Olympic Committee HOCi. The organizing committee presented a progress report Friday to the 74th session of the IOC and the Montreal delegation, headed by Com- missioner General Roger Rousseau and Mayor Jean Drapeau. was enthusiastic about its reception following a one-hour meeting. "No one is worried about Montreal any more." was Rousseau's comment when he emerged from the closed meeting. "The whole at- mosphere really opened up in there all the members asked questions about our self- financing of the (James and appeared satisfied with the answers we were able 10 give them." Rousseau said that while the organizing committee has sold the I'nited States televi- sion rights for the (James to the American Broadcasting Co. for million with IOC approval, much remained to be done to obtain further revenue in this field. "We are using part of the money from ABC for the day- today operation of the organizing committee." he said "But we still are negotiating for film, world television and radio rights. 'Owing to the universal interest in the Games, world television coverage will be more extensive than ever before. All major broad- casters are being given the op- port unity to negotiate for rights." WOULDN'T DISCUSS IT While no one from the Mon- treal group was discussing se- curity problems it may face in 197K. it was learned that several IOC members had raised the question. Lord Killanin of Ireland. IOC president, said Thursday during a news conference he had discussed security with the Montreal group. The IOC president did not elaborate. Meanwhile, the IOC has taken the first firm step toward whittling down the size of the snowballing (lames. After 197ti there will be no walking in the Olympics.

If an arrangement cannot be made by the San Diego management, the owners said, another meeting will be held to consider the transfer of the Padres to Washington. DC Chub Feeney.

Ev- erybody loses at Taylor Field but only the B.C. club has dropped every regular season game there since Sept. 10, 1965. Sunday would be as good a day as any to break that streak, because if the fourth- spot Lions don't win that one. they might just as well forget about the Western Conference playoffs for one more year. But if past performance means anything, the B.C. club's chances for a win Sun- day are slim. The Lions and the Roughriders have met twice this season and Saskatchewan took both games. 21-5 in Vancouver and 38-19 in Regina. The holiday weekend shapes up as a crucial time tor Sas- katchewan and Edmonton, sharing top spot in the West with 14 points, as the Eskimos play host to last-place Win- nipeg Blue Bombers Monday Lions quarterback Don Moorhead is an unlikely starter for Sunday's game, but he will dress. Although he has recovered from a bout of the flu. Moorhead still is suf- fering from a sprained ankle Quarterback Karl Douglas will start for the B.C. club. Running back Monroe Kiev also is a doubtful starter for the with a deep charleyhors'e. and linebacker Peter Palmer is definitely out for Sunday's game after he went down in practice with a badly sprained ankle. Lions defensive back Brian Donnelly is a doubtful starter with a slightly separated shoulder but tight end Lefty llendrickson will play Sunday against Saskatchewan despite a torn chalf muscle. Meanwhile. the Rouehriders have dropped quarterback Mike Junek. whose live-day trial ended Thursday. Saskatchewan head coach John Payne said the team is waiting until Sunday before deciding on defensive back Mel Easley. who was on his third day of a live-day trial Friday. He was brought in after Rider pass defence had troubles. "He's looking good but we probably will wait until Sun- day before making a decision." Payne said. And preparations continue for a half-time ceremony in Regina honoring George Reed. Rider fan Eddie Davey has been to present Reed with the football lie used to set a pro touchdown rushing record. Davey. who has been confin- ed to a wheelchair since birth, has missed only five home games in the last 20 vears. Back in the Lions camp. head coach Eagle Keys said if Donnelly doesn't start Sun- day, the team will have to ac- tivate Joe Fourqurean. "Brian says he can play but it's the same kind of injury Don Moorhead has and one good hit would put him out. But we'll just have to wait and see." Keys said the club has acti- vated Canadian running back Harry Abofs. whose five-day tryout ended Wednesday. Winnipeg head coach Jim Spa vital said no lineup changes are anticipated for Monday's game after the Bombers' disappointing loss to Hamilton Wednesday. "There just isn't time to make anv changes." said Spa- vital, who still isn't throwing in the towel. "Where there's life, there's hope." he said of t he Bombers' dwindling playoff hopes. Winnipeg now is 3-8 for six points, one behind B.C. and four less than Calgary which has a game in hand and a strong grip on third place and the final playoff spot in the west Spa vita I said the big problem the Bombers have had is keeping the other team off the Scoreboard and added that his team has allowed 74 points total in the tourth quarter in losing many close ones this vear. even] each trmn cycling shooting The swimming events cu; were the men's and women's 200-meire individual modlev> and the in.MI'S Ireesivle relav By GARY KIRK KIRK'S TIRE SALES LTD.
