Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - October 24, 1974, Lethbridge, Alberta 12 THE LCTHBRIDOE HERALD Thursday. October 24. 1974 RID Yflll The 8 to 30 day excursion fares are back. Will IUU Use the above fare and save KNOW For informatlon and bookings ART WILLIAMS TRAVEL CENTRE VILLAGE MALL PHONE Herald Sports Pat Sullivan I'm just kidding guys I know now just exactly bow Bob Hope feels when be sings 'thanks for the Oh, how short some people's memories can be. A guy goes away on a short vacation and comes back looking like a prime candidate for a who's that show. I'm talking about the Lethbridge Broncos, of course. You coddle and pamper them through training camp, slowly edge them through the exhibition season and then protect them as they open the season in a new, enveloping building. And what thanks do you get? I walked into the Sportsplex Tuesday morning after a successful engagement in Las Vegas and what do I get? You should have been there. When I left for Vegas the Broncos were smarting with an early one win and three loss record. I come back and what do my eyes behold? The club is all even at three wins, three losses and a tie. So who needs me? I could almost hear all 20 players in ear- aching chorus "we can get along without you now." All kidding aside though the Broncos appear to be putting it together and that's great. After all, what have we been waiting for all summer? A good, entertaining hockey club, right? I had a quick chat with coach Earl Ingarfield Tuesday after- noon and he seems more than pleased with the progress of the club. He's not getting out the silver polish for the Memorial Cup but he was quick to admit that the club is now playing like a team, a blending of 20 young men together. He even chuckled when he said that the team, to a player, enjoyed a game of fastball the other day. What do they say "the team that plays together, stays wasn't that aw- ful? According to Ingarfield there have been some strange goings on at the rink as well regarding the team. He tells me that the fans areactually stomping their hands and clapping their feet or is it the other way around? Who cares? Things are happening and that's what counts. And how about that affair that Archie Henderson is having watch lover John Lutz' eyes light up when he reads this. Word has it that Henderson, one of the club's rookies, is en- joying a love affair with hockey fans. It seems all Arch has to do is touch the puck and the crowd responds. I even heard, from a very good source, that the big red head was given a standing ovation on one occasion. I would watch it Arch, don't let anything spoil a long career. I can recall the last standing ovation concerning hockey. It was the night, the old Arena burnt down and the crowd of better than stood outside the building as it crumpled to the ground and cheered. With any luck at-all, and a word- or two from the news media, the Broncos should eclipse the mark in attendance with crowds Friday and Sunday combined. With the season just four games old, the home section that is, the Broncos have seen patrons pass through the turnstiles. And according to treasurer Gary Kirk, none of them have been freebies either. The air surrounding the club is cheerful. Even Kirk and Bill Burton found time to laugh at a picture of Ingarfield in the latest edition of Hockey Journal. It was one taken when Earl played with the old Lethbridge Native Sons. Just think Earl, this time three weeks ago they were com- plaining that your picture was in the Bronco magazine five times. I was not here when Harold Brown passed away. I received word of it in Las Vegas and was deeply shocked. I don't have the words to describe Brownie. All I can ex- press is my condolences to his family. He left a long, wide fairway to fill with his passing. ANDY CAPP 1974 Daily Mirn.r Nrxpipm Li.l Amljr Ctft SOT AN IDEA, Qu V WHILE WE'RE Shea can recall first Games ever held in Lake Placid, N.Y. VIENNA (CP) clock turned back 42 years for Jack Shea, town supervisor of Lake Placid, N.Y., when the little ski resort was awarded the 1980 Winter Olympics. Shea was born in Lake Pla- cid. In 1932, when he was 17, the Winter Olympics were held there and he won two gold medals in speed skating. Now, at 60, he has helped Lake Placid to get the Winter Games again. The Inter- national Olympic Committee (IOC) made the award Wednesday, at the same time choosing Moscow over Los Angeles for the 1980 Summer Games. "I have waited a long time for this to said Shea whose family runs a meat and groceries business in Lake Placid. "The Winter Games in my home town in 1932 were the highlight of my life. I have dreamed of seeing them take place at Lake Placid again. "I have not been to any Win- ter Olympics since 1932, and I wonder just how different it will be. "The games were smaller in those days. One of our tasks will be to try to restore the simplicity and intimate friendships of the Olympics of days gone by." Shea was one of a six-man team which appeared before the IOC and presented Lake Placid's bid. The task was made easier by the withdrawal of Vancouver, the only other applicant. Lake Placid told the IOC it would need to spend between million and million to improve facilities before the 1980 Games. Shea said the Lake Placid group will be building a new field house with a seating ca- pacity of to adja- cent to the present hockey rink, which will be the site of the Olympic hockey and figure skating events. There also will be alterations to the downhill ski course to make it faster and a 90-metre ski hill will be built. Lake Placid has the only bobsled run in North America at Mount Van Hoefenberg, about six miles south. The biathlon course will also be located there. The town of North Elba, of which the villages of Lake Placid and Saranac Lake are a part, has a population of about but because it is a-resort area, there are beds for visitors in the Lake Placid area alone. Shea said that in a 50-mile radius, there would be accom- modation for about people. W1972, Lake Placid was the site of the World Student Games. The IOC did not reveal the voting figures, but an inform- ed source, said Moscow beat Los Angeles by 39 votes to 22 for the Slimmer Games and the verdict on Lake Placid was unanimous. It will be the first time the Olympics have been held in a Communist country.

PhOfN) Cubs trade Roundup of short sport Williams CHICAGO (AP) Chicago Cubs announced Wednesday they have traded slugging out- fielder-first baseman Billy Williams to Oakland A's for three players, including veteran relief pitchers Darold Knowles and Bob Locker. Williams, 36, a long-time Cub batting mainstay, hit .278 this season and .288 in 1973. He hit .333 in 1972. He had been tried at first base as the Cubs pressed for youth and speed in the outfield. Locker, 36, is a former Cub sidelined by surgery in 1974, and Knowles, 32, was 3-3 this season with three saves. The A's also gave up second base- man Manny Trillo, 23, a .253 hitter regarded as fast and ca- pable with a glove. He spent much of 1974 with Tucson. Because of his veteran status, Williams, under league Santo refused to be traded to San Diego Padres when the Cubs started their youth- oriented house cleaning before the 1974 season. He later went to Chicago White Sox.

Laver, Connors agree to play showdown NEW YORK (AP) Rod Laver and Jimmy Connors signed Wednesday to play a challenge match Feb. 2 in Las Vegas, then began probing for an advantage in the best1 of three competition. The 36-year-old Laver said fans would appreciate watching the match on a slower surface that would mean more volleys. A slower surface would also negate Connors' powerful serve and TfmiCMftyinfc NOW ON THE AIR Connors, 22. said be would like to play on ice or any other 'fast surface. "That's something I guess Rod and I have to work out between Connors said of the type surface to be used in the indoor match at Caesar's Palace in Las Vegas. The match will be worth to the winner. Connors aid he the challenge match following the United States Open because be has never played Laver before "and I think we should meet before one of us retires." This year, Connors won toe Australian Open, the U.S. Open and Wimbledon singles titles, losing out on a grand slam bid when be was barred from playing in OK French Open because be wasn't a member of the Association of Tennis Professionals. Laver is the only player to have won toe grand slam twice, sweeping all four championships in 1962 as an amateur and again in 1969 as a pro.

The left-hander, who passed up the U.S. Open in September, has not competed since August when be won a tournament in New Hampshire. While the winner will get the loser will have a pay said a spokesman for the match. Bat he refused to say bow much. LETHIMME OFFICE FURNITUK LTD.

McQuarters, a 31-year-old veteran of nine years in the Canadian Football League, was cut by Saskatchewan after spending most of the season on the injury list. He had knee trouble throughout the season. Three years ago, he lost an eye in a home accident. In an interview, he express- ed bitterness over the way he was dropped: "I wanted to retire last year. They wouldn't let me. They came to my house and practically begged me to come back. "Both (coach) John Payne and (President) Al Sangster talked to me "They talk you into coming back, and then when they've finished with you, they get rid of you. I have seen it happen before, I never thought it would happen to me, not this way." McQuarters said he was due to come off the injury list for last Saturday's game in Van- couver but a few days before was called to the coach's of- fice. "Payne said management felt that I had been hurt most of the season and they didn't want to be paying me any more. Preston maintains that "Ed didn't give himself a chance this year."
