Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - October 10, 1973, Lethbridge, Alberta I WAS 66U6V6TOU, PERCX' NOU'RE TU5T LIKE ALLTwE REST' ONE'S THE ONLV B6ALLY PLATONIC FRIEND I'VE EVER 10-10 Max OIL KINGS UPSET TIGERS BARTON HATES RULE TORONTO (CP) Cana- dian Football League rules regarding college players is a sore point with Greg Barton, former quarterback for Toronto Argonauts Barton, now director of Canadian personnel for the Eastern Football Conference team, is concerned that CFL ABA teams will strike squads may recruit players from United States' colleges who have not graduated However, the clubs can't do that with Canadian hopefuls and can't even invite them to practise. "If people in Canada want to see the best in football and they keep saying they do, then NEW YORK American Basketball Associa- tion teams have voted to strike and the secretary of the ABA Players' Association said Tuesday night (hat. barr- ing a last-minute settlement, the league's regular season will not begin as scheduled tonight. Bill Melchionni of New York Jets said negotiations between his association and the league's owners have broken off The dispute hinges on the players' demand to lower the age of eligibility for a pension to 55 from 65 as well as first class travel arrangements for trips of more than one hour The opening schedule has New York at Indianapolis. Memphis at Utah and San Diego at San Antonio. Players for Carolina, Denver. Indiana Memphis. New York. San Diego and Utah voted to strike. Melchionni said Results of balloting con- ducted by Virginia. Kentucky and San Antonio had not been received late Wednesday by the association Arnold Preblud. lawyer for the players' association, met in Denver with Frank Goldberg, owner of Denver Rockets and the represen- tative of the owners. Tuesday night but walked out of the meeting after an agreement could not be reached Regarding the travel issue. Melchionni said "In the National Basketball Associa- tion first class travel is man- datory. We're willing to make it for one hour." Currently, the ABA provides second-class travel on trips less than two hours The association contract ex- pired July 15 ABA commissioner Mike Storen said in Indianapolis that "the chairman of our player relations committee reported he felt he reached an agreement earlier Tuesday After that a release came out that the players were striking." "I have not had a chance to talk with Arnold Preblud. I don't know what the problem is there should be changes." said the 27-year-old Barton, from Tulsa University and native of Long Beach, Calif "They see an entertaining football player in Leon McQuay, for example They might see the same in Neil Lumsden. but they are going to have to wait four years to see Lumsden." Lumsden, from Toronto, plays for the University of Ot- tawa team and is a six-foot- one 230-pound halfback. Barton says it's a toss-up between Lumsden and Terry Bailey of Simon Fraser University in Burnaby. B.C.. as to who is the best halfback in Canadian college football Canadian college players can't get a tryout with a team until their class graduates, but Americans can desert college any time to play for a CFL team ''The conservative approach to the game up here can really bug you." said Bar- ton, who has applied for Cana- dian citizenship "Conser- vatism is everything Rules, for instance, are made to be changed if the time is right. Here, they think that rules are sacred It doesn't make sense to me to say to Americans. We can sign you at any time but we can't do that with Canadians The way the system is, Canadian football teams may think twice about sending a player to college in Canada "They would be better off to tell him to play junior foot- ball." Barton said Lumsden also is one of the best punters and field goal kickers in Canada. "but we can't touch him until his class graduates EDMONTON (CP) Ed- monton Oil Kings frittered away a three-goal lead in the third period Tuesday night but stormed back to salvage a 7-5 victory over Medicine Hat Tigers for their first victory of the Western Canada Hockey League season A crowd of watched Rocky Maze break a 5-5 tie at the third period after having a goal disallowed 15 seconds earlier. Terry McDonald put it out of reach with his second goal, an end- to-end breakaway on the vacated Medicine Hat net. Wayne Perkins scored twice in the first period and Mike Will added one for the Tigers Captain Dave Inkpen was credited with a goal deflected into the net by Medicine Hat's Cliff Bast. Bryan Maxwell scored twice on almost-identical screened shots from the point for Medicine Hat to start a third-period comeback Ryan Wecker and brothers Ken and Brad Gassoff scored one each for the Tigers. Meanwhile in Brandon Ron Chipperfield and Rick Blight paced Brandon Wheat Kings to a 6-4 win over Flin Flon Bombers Tuesday night in game that featured a between-penods brawl involv- ing fans and Flin Flon players. The trouble erupted just before the start of the third period and Flin Flon coach Pat Ginnell. who was in the thick of the fray, said it was precipitated when "one of the goons in the stands drenched me with beer The clash with Ginnell and a couple of spectators as the major combatants, delayed the start of the period for about 10 minutes The sale of heer at the Keystone Centre came into effect last week with the Wheat King's first home game of the season. The conflict was mostly a fist fight, with some stick swinging. Ginnell said, "if they're go- ing to sell beer, then they should either clear out the row of seats behind our bench or they should provide us with more police protection "Every time we come to Brandon we take a lot of abuse from the fans directly behind us But to give a few of those goons beer is just asking for trouble Chipperfield and Blight had two goals each and other Wheat King goals were by Murray Good and Ralph Krentz. For Bombers, scorers were Al Hillier.

THE ASSOCIATED PRESS How much will Los Angeles Lakers miss Wilt Chamberlain9 Hardly at all, if their season-opening game can be used as a barometer. The Lakers, playing without the 7-foot-l giant who signed recently as player-coach with San Diego Conquistadors of the American Basketball Association, began their National Basketball Associa- tion campaign with a 117-97 victory Tuesday night over Chicago Bulls. Jerry West, the Lakers' all- star guard, had a game-high 28 points, including 10 during a third-quarter when the Lakers moved from a 66-66 deadlock into a 82-71 lead BUFFALO TRIUMPHS In other NBA openers, defending champion New York squeaked past Detroit 101-100, Atlanta trounced Capital 128-114, Buffalo edged Houston 107-105. in overtime, and Golden State's game at Cleveland was postponed because of a wet floor Gail Goodrich added 26 points for Los Angeles, and Chet Walker topped Chicago with 26. CH1CAGU (AP) The elders of his tribe named him Wathahuckpath Lit by Light- ning But the world knew him as Jim Thorpe, an American sports legend Now his seven children think it is time for their father to become an Indian legend, a pillar of what daughter Grace Thorpe calls the American In- dian Renaissance "We have so few Indians we can use." says Miss Thorpe. 52 "We resent others ex- ploiting his name "Dad's one of the few In- dians who have made adds his oldest daughter. Gail Thorpe of Chicago "He's everybody's presidents, even tiny little boys know his name." the big Sac and Fox Indian from Oklahoma, who died in 1953. first made his reputation by almost single-handedly pushing the small Carlisle Pa Institute football team to glory He went on to sweep the track and field events at the 1912 Olympics in Sweden, play pro baseball for six years and help organize the predecessor of the National Football League Three months ago the Thorpe children incorporated a non-profit Jim Thorpe Foun- dation in Oklahoma They say they hope to use it to control the use of their father's name and the distribution of his medals and belongings. They plan to use the profits to help other Indians. The foundation already has organized a toll-free hotline for Oklahoma Indians who have problems CRUSADES FOR DAD Grace Thorpe's hazel eyes glow when she speaks of how, in her view, the white man has ignored her father's Indian roots For instance, she says, when President Nixon declared a Jim Thorpe Day last April 16, the Thorpe fami- ly and Sac and Fox tribe were not notified And when the old Thorpe home in Yale. Okla was dedicated recently as an historical site. Grace says it was only at her urging that the head of "the Sac and Fox tribe and family members were in- vited. The pamphlet that accom- panies that house describes Thorpe's father. Hiram, as a man who "showed a weakness for the bottle "It doesn't mention that Hiram would bring home two deer when other men brought home only one." Grace says. this kind of thing we hope the foundation can con- trol IOC PROMISES SOME EXPANSION IN FUTURE VARNA, Bulgaria (Reuter) Expansion of the Olympic Games in the 1980s appears likely as a result of dis- cussions here last week by top administrators of world amateur sport. The International Olympic Committee (IOC) concluded its annual meeting with a promise of early action to clear up confusion over the conditions under which athletes should be eligible to compete When this is done, probably early next year but certainly well before the next Olympic Games at Montreal in 1976. the Olympic movement can look at sports programs to be included in future games There can be little change in the program for the 1980 games. First bids are already in on these and a final decision must be taken at the next IOC annual meeting in Vienna next October This means changes would not be prepared in time for in- clusion Despite objections from some countries and sports federations, it is likely the IOC next year will choose Moscow as the site for the 1980 Summer Games. Winter sportsmen are likely to find themselves in Van- couver for the Winter Games that year. But the increasing cost of being host to the Olympics has troubled many countries African and Latin American delegates feared that their countries could never meet the huge costs involved Montreal's Olympics are budgetted at million But more sports want to enter the Olympics, and the administrators who met here want to include more events IOC president Lord Killanm. summing up Olym- pic week in this Black Sea resort, told reporters he felt the Games in the future should be allocated to one city, but that it should be possible to put some sports out to different cities As long as the main sports, for example track, swim- ming soccer, are staged in the mam city, a future Olym- pics might find the boxing, hockey, archery in other cities Some Olympic officials would be unhappy at the dis- persal of the Games, but one mass opening and closing ceremony, international mix- ing in Olympic competitors villages and improved televj- sion links, might be accep- table to them.
