Joe Meli is underneath McCracken while Longhorns Ron Krlkke (12) is at the side of net fending off Wayne Turner (18) of the Pass. Red Devils win it in third For the second time this season the Lethbridge Longhorns have had to suffer the consequences of playing only two good periods of hockey. The Longhorns were caught napping in the third period Tuesday night at Henderson Lake Ice Centre and were stung 5-3 by the visiting Pass Red Devils in an Alberta Junior Hockey League game. The victory lifted the Red Devils' record to 6-1 while the loss left the Longhorns holding onto two wins and five setbacks. Red Devils only loss was on account of a league ruling which upheld a protest by the Longhorns earlier in the season. In actual play the Red Devils had won that game 4-3 in overtime. Meanwhile in last night's match, the Longhorns worked up a 2-1 lead after 20 minutes of play but the Red Devils evened the score 3-3 prior to the disastrous third period. Red Devils opened the scor- ing at the mark of the in- itial period on John Hawkins' first of two goals but their one-goal lead vanished a little over two minutes later. Longhorns battled back with a pair of power-play goals scored a minute apart. Darryl Zaperniuk tallied at the mark with Devils' Dave Krook off for roughing while Ron Wieland pushed the Longhorns into the lead notching a marker with Darryl Sim off for tripping. The Devils tied the game early in the second period on Hawkins' second goal of the evening but the Longhorns regained their lead on Randy Joevenazzo's goal three minutes later. They held their one-goal edge for only 34 seconds as Devils' Krook came back to square things up. The Longhorns were once again guilty of having a relax- ed attitude in the third period as they dropped their guard. The third period was scoreless for most of the 20 minutes of action but the Longhorns were finally caught day-dreaming when the Devils tallied two quick goals to salt away the victory. Brent McCracken fired in the winning goal at the mark and Lyle Murray rifled in the insurance goal about one minute later. The Longhorns had a fine opportunity to win the game during the third period when McCracken was serving five minutes for butt ending, but they just couldn't amount an attack. In Edmonton the Mets won their third straight game, evening their season record to 3 and 3, defeating Red Deer Rustlers 5-4 Tuesday. Bob Sockolowski. Doug Lecuyer, Gary Rissling, Joe Poplowski and Wayne Babych were the Edmonton marksmen, while Brian FALL CLEARANCE at HIGA'S MEN'S WEAR 406 13th St. N.

VIENNA (AP) The Olympic Winter Games 1976 will have to prove that such Games are still justified, of- ficials of the organizing com- mittee for the Games in Innsbruck, Austria, told a news conference Tuesday. "There have been doubts about the Winter Fred Sinowatz, Austraian minister of education and president of the organizing committee said, referring to what he called "the well- known aversion against them by former International Olympic Committee (IOC) president Avery Brundage." By organizing "simple Games with Austrian Austria will furthermore have to prove that such Games can also be organized by small countries, and not only by "super states." Austria has a population of only 7 million. Innsbruck, site of the 1964 Games, bid for the 1976 Games when Dener, Colo., relinquished them after a referendum. LACKS PREPARATION Alois Lugger, the mayor of Innsbruck who spoke after Sinowatz, said he understood "simple Games" were those which are "athletically all right, but without Karl Heinz Klee, secretary general of the organizing com- mittee, said that although Austria has only three years to prepare for the Games, in- stead of six which are customary, there was every assurance that the Games would be held without any hitch. The contests would be stag- ed on the same sites on which the 1964 Winter Games were carried out, with the excep- tion of the bobsled and luge events. They will be staged on the same track, instead of two separate chutes as in 1964. Klee expressed confidence that the amateur problem which marred the 1972 Winter Games of Sapporo, Japan, will be cleared up in the session of the IOC here next year. He said he expected this would be done by modernizing the amateur rules. Klee was president of the- Austrian Skiing Association in Sapporo and bore the brunt of the "Affair Schranz" the expulsion from the Olympic Games of Austria's ace skier, Karl Schranz. Klee resigned from his posi- tion in the wake of a national outcry in Austria over the Schranz disqualification. As to the costs for the 1976 Games, the officials said they estimated million for the organization, million for expanding and adapting the existing sites, about million for the Olympic village and million for the press centre. They stressed, though, that the village and the press centre were in fact not Olym- pic expenses since the buildings had been planned for some time as a housing pro- ject and a college building. The Herald Sports J Sons nearly ready Lethbridge Native Sons' coach, Jim Mellan, is current- ly busy preparing his chargers for the 1973 Central Alberta Junior Hockey League season. Mellan will take his junior B squad through a pair of exhibi- tion games this week in order to help him decide this year's roster. Brooks Tubers will host the Native Sons tonight at for their first taste of action while Lethbridge Midget Elks hit the ice against the Sons Sun- day at Henderson Lake Ice Centre. The Sons will open their season schedule on the road during the weekend of Nov. 3- 4. Oyen will host the Sons Nov. 3 while Hanna will lay out the carpet the following day. The Sons' home opener is set for the following weekend with Oyen paying a visit Nov. 11 and Drumheller Nov. 12. Meanwhile the previously seven-team CAJHL has added an eighth team for the 1973 season. Rocky Mountain House was awarded a franchise and will join the other clubs in a 28- game schedule. The 28 games are split evenly on a home- and-home basis. The league will also split into two divisions for the league playoffs. MOLSON C N DA cr n ;
