Races are scbeduled to get under way at noon while the gates open and registration will begin at 10 a.m. Although the strip is ail old airport it is on private property and was discovered by Gary Colisen. After farther investi- gation the LeBarons and the owner of the land came to an agreement. "If the weather holds out we could have two drag meets this said one club official. "We're going to start with this one Monday and keep our fin- gers crossed that we can hold one more, maybe in two weeks time." Tile strip is in length and 100' wide. It is an ideal setup for drag racing. The club prepared the track alone and will run it as a club function. The public is invited to use the facilities but only during a san- ctioned meet. "We welcome anyone, even if they are not club members, to use our facilities as long as they are taking part in a club- run was the way the official put it. All (lie safety precautions necessary have been taken b; the club. Members have re- surfaced a portion of the track and made it a very good strip It is hopeful some 100 car; will run Monday. Entries are expected from various parts o southern Alberta and Brit i s 1 Columbia. Trophies will be pre- sented to winners. Cars racing will be stock, modified and super stock. "We feel we have really 'ound an ideal spot for drag continued the club nember. "We're already think- j ing about next year when we'll "We haven't had any real se- rious injuries and I haven't had to suspend anyone." "Last year I had to suspend four players (Brad Park, Jean Ratelle, Vic Hadfield and Walt Tkaczuk) who hadn't signed and refused to play ex- hibition games. This year everyone was signed." THOUGHTS UNPRINTABLE Asked to sum up his Bruins' training season, Johnson re- plied: "I unprinta- ble." Then he added: "We had one good week, the first one. The rest has cer- tainly been disappointing, at least from a standpoint of re- sults. The over-all attitude has been the main reason. In this game, you can't fall back on last year's results. "I would like to think our fellows are just waiting for the regular season to start. But you can't sit around and wait for the bell to ring. You have to show some indication you're ready, and we cer- tainly haven't the last couple of games.'' The Rangers, who open against the Stanley Cup cham- pion Canadiens in Montreal Saturday night, finished their exhibition schedule with six wins, two losses and one tie against NHL clubs, including 3-1 mark against Boston. The Bruins, who lost only 14 games last season, er.ded their exhibition play against IVHL clubs with a 3-5-1 record. Johnson, who appears ready to crack the whip, scheduled practices for today and Satur- day, hoping the Bruins will snap out of the slump before their NIIL opener against the Rangers here Sunday night. have a whole season of racing.' Predicts sell-out CALGARY (CP) It's al- most a sure thing that tickets won't be available by December for the world figure skating championships, still five months away. "We don't expect to have a ticket for sale when over-the- counter sales start in Decem- says Bob Northcolt, man- ager of the Corral where the March 6-12 event will be held. The arena has a seating ca- pacity of but to date 85 per cent of the area has been sold. One of the orders was for Sfl.OOO worth of tickets. The best seats are worth bul there hasn't been one avail- able since June, says Northcott. "There are still a few tick- ets left but we are about 100 be- hind on orders so we can't really say how many." The arena lias been scaled at and with the more ex- pensive seats being purchased on an all-events basis A spokesman for the Calgary committee in charge of the championships says orders have been received, mostly from other countries. Is Rocket interested? Pittsburgh meets the Sabres Buffalo and the Kings travel to Vancouver. New York defeated Boston 5-3 Thursday night to complete the exhibition schedule. "Dune Wilson certainly is the! key to our said Poile Thursday. "I put it squarely on Dune's shoulders. If he doesn' become a major leaguer, then we're in big trouble." Last season, Wilson, picte up from Philadelphia in the !970 expansion draft, shared Vancou ver's goaltending duties with Charlie Hodge and George Gardner. But this season, the Canucks' second in the NHL, Hodge is on waivers and could end up with Rochester Americans, Vancou- ver's farm team in the Ameri- can Hockey League. Gardner, 2fl, is regarded as only adequate. But Wilson has been instructed to make himsell No. 1 in a bid to improve upon Vancouver's sixth-place finish in the East Division last season. Although W i 1 s o n 's average last season was 4.28 in 35 games, Poile realizes that the 23-year-old was used against last season's York, Boston, Montreal and Chi- Hodge and Gardner drew the leftovers. COULD MAKE MONEY As incentive for Wilson, Poile Miairo wants ifun back F.-iday, Oclobor 8, 1971 THE IETHBR1DGE HERAID 13 has loaded his contract with bonus clauses, including extra money for staying in the league for a certain number of games and for performance. "He can make himself a good said Poile, Wilson is also on his word that his behavior this season will improve over his antics last season when he became in- volved in several fights and had to post a keep-the-peace bond with the league. "We've told him to Slav oal and play his Poile said. "He had seven fights last year. I think his attitude has improved." At Boston Thursday, the Bruins lost their fifth of nine contests against NHL clubs in pre-season play. They tied one. Jim Neilson and Bruce Mac- regor scored 33 seconds apart early in the first period, leading the Rangers to their sixth win against two losses and one tie in exhibition games with NHL clubs.

In a speech to a national con- ference for the forthcoming Olympics, Mr. Munro said the 175 sport leaders face three challenges: They must build high quality Olympic teams, use the process of leant building to spark better amateur sport development and use the Olympics to heighten recreational sports involvement by all Canadians. "We have the Canadian talent which is equal to that of the rest of the not across the spectrum of competi- tion, but in quantity commen- surate with our population, and our position as a nation." Mr. Munro said several areas need to be strengthened before tile Olympics. More emphasis must be placed on scouting, the development of specific sports areas, improved coaching and training programs. But motivating Canadians re- quires the most work. "The best sprinter or hurdler in the world may now live in Corner Brook, or Riviere-du- Loup or Sioux Lookout, or within the core areas of tmr major cities. "But we will never recognize that athlete unless he or she de- cides to participate in organized sport in his locale, so that his ability can be spotted and di- Mr. Munro said a major prob- lem in motivating Canadians arose from the fact that 'present sport structures just don't turn them on." He criticized the "fraternity syndrome" which sets put spe- cial rules and regulations for athletes' conduct. It is time to start selling the strong point of sports par- fact that sports are fun "and can be a meaning- ul part of our life style without victors' was Now York's at the same time dominating in fnnr inoc nnfVi it ww.Atu.i.iAiij, PART OF THE ACTION Johnny Jones, lending the all-round, bareback brone and bull riding competition, is seen in action prior to tonight's opening of the three-day All- Indian International rodeo a( the Lethbridge Exhibition Pavilion.

Neil Shayne of Mineola, N.V. a lawyer acting as spokesman for the franchise which is to embrace Now York, New Jer- sey and Connecticut, said Thursday: "We have talked with the Rocket, and he expressed inter, esl. "We want him to be con- nected with us in one way or an- other, but his exact function still has to be discussed. The spokesman said the fran- chise also has talked to other hockey figures, but that no names would be released at present. The league, which hopes some day to compete with the Na- jonal Hockey League, is study- ing applications for franchises.
