Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - October 9, 1970, Lethbridge, Alberta PrMay, Ottolw It70 THI IITHMIDGI HW.MD f COUTKERN ALBERTA became phe'asant country again this morning. As the first rays of light started to show, vehicles filled With hunters and dogs were parked by country roadsides in practically every district of the south. There was no pheasant and Hungarian partridge season in the province last year because of the mer- cury problem and for the die-hard shooters this was bard to take. Perhaps it was because they had been left alone since the fall of 1968. The roosters appeared to be a little fuzzy as to what it was all about at first. The cool of the morning probably had more to do with it. But, that didn't last long. There were many 'no- effect' holes blasted in the sky as the day progressed. For the most part birds are throughout southern Alberta partridge included. The cold weather in the north country has pushed down a new bunch of ducks and geese, while local birds appear to have been scared off by the blustery weather we had a few days ago. All round, it's some of the best mixed-bag hunting shooters in this area have seen for years. AND AFTER THE SHOOTING is wrapped up on Saturday, there are several events-taking place to which all near and invited. Saturday, starting at p.m. the Lethbridge Fish and Game Association will hold its fall jam- boree in the General Grant Room at the El Rancho Motor Hotel. Doors open at 8 p.m. There's dancing.. Buffet supper served around p.m. Then more dancing. At Taber, the Taber Fish and Game Association is holding its fall jamboree also on Saturday. Banquet starts at 7 p.m. in the Moose'Hall. After that it's danc- ing and the awarding of prizes for the longest tail pheasant derby contest. The Lethbridge Trap Club will hold a meeting Sunday, Oct. 18, at 2 p.m. to elect a new member to the board of directors. Ed Mantler long time stal- wart with the club, has found that he is unable to carry on. And this Sunday, there's trap shooting at the Lethbridge Trap Club. So if your1 eye wasn't so keen Friday and Saturday, the trap .club may be. the. spot. to sharpen up those reflexes. Rustlers Slip By Sugar Kings RED DEER (CP) Red Deer Hustlers scored three goals in the first period and went on to defeat the winless Ponoka Stampeders 3-1 in an Alberta Junior Hockey: League game Thursday night before 710 fans.

Top Spot On Line In Football Loop Winston Churchill High School Bulldogs will be out to strength- en their hold on first place in the Southern Alberta High School Football League tonight at Henderson Park. The Bulldogs, who sport a win and a tie in their two starts so far this year, take on the defending champion Catholic Central Cougars at eight o'clock. Actually, tonight's game is a battle for first place. The Bull- dogs lead with three points with the Cougars, with a win and a loss in two starts, second with two points. LCI Rams are in the cellar with a tie and a loss in two games. A Cougar win would give them the lead. In the first meeting of the year between the Cougars and Bulldogs, the Winston Churchill squad came through with colors Dying to post a 21-13 win. Tonight's tussle looks like a natural. There'll also be exhibition high school action Monday, Thanksgiving. The Rams will host Calgary Henry Wise Wood at Henderson Park with the game set for 12 noon so that it will not conflict with the tele- vised Western Conference game between Edmonton Eskimos and Calgary Stampeders.

Canucks In Spotlight For Puck Opening By THE CANADIAN PRESS The longest regular-season schedule in National Hockey League history starts tonight in Vancouver and will end 548 games later in April in Pitts- burgh. With the inclusion of Vancou- ver Canucks and Buffalo Sabres in the league this year, the number of teams increased to 14 from 12 last year. Accordingly, the number of scheduled games Increased to 546 this year, 90 more than in 1969-70. And, apparently, league offi- cials believed it fitting that one of the expansion teams share the spotlight in the season's opener. Although the schedule was drawn up before regular pre- season games ended, Vancouver probably couldn't have been a better choice to open the sea- son. With a.3-4-3 record in exhibi- tion, the Canucks have drawn, a lot of attention (or an NHL rookie club. Los Angeles Kings, who Joined the league in its 1967-68 expan- sion, and who meet the Canucks in this year's opener, had a 3-1-2 record in exhibition play. The season moves into full swing this weekend. On Satur- day, New York Rangers meet St. Louis Blues, Oakland Seals take on Detroit Red Wings, Buf- falo visits Pittsburgh Penguins and Minnesota North Stars bat- tle with Philadelphia Flyers. Montreal Canadiens meet Philadelphia Flyers Sunday, To- ronto Maple Leafs play Vancou- ver, Detroit tangles with the Bruins in Boston and Oakland flies to Chicago to play the Hawks. This year St. Louis Bluet are not favorites to win the fcague'i West Division title. Blues have won the divi- sioi the last two seasons since the NHL expanded in 1967-68. All expansion teams, Philadel- phia, Oakland, Pittsburgh, Min- nesota, Los Angeles and St. Louis were placed in the new division with the other teams making up the East Division. But with Buffalo and Vancou- ver coming into the Eastern Di- vision, Chicago was shifted to the West, making them favor- ites there. The Hawks finished first in the East last year. However, Al Arbour, rookta coach of the Blues, doesn't ap- pear too worried.
