Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - September 4, 1970, Lethbridge, Alberta 8 THI IETHBRIDGB HERALD Friday, September 4, 1970- Minnesoki Loses Ground To California Surging Cubs Back In Runner-Dp Spot By THE ASSOCIATED PRESS Jim Hicknian, dubbed the Ice- man by his teammates, stroked a rim-scoring single in the open- ing inning, then crashed a three-run homer in the second as the Chicago Cubs routed Philadelphia Phillies 7-2 and moved to within one-half game of tile National League's East division-leading Pittsburgh Pir- ates. The 6-FooM, 205-poundcr from Tennessee, increased his aver- age to .326 with his 29th homer and single and the four runs batted in gave lu'm 103 for tlie year. In his eight previous big league seasons, Hickman hit .236. "Jim carried us last August and, when everyone else was fading in September, he kept right on Cubs' Manager Leo Durocher said. "And now lie's carrying us again." Hickman's offensive effort proved more than enough for Ferguson Jenkins Thursday, who won Us 18th game while striking out 10. The game also marked the end of Billy Williams's National League consecutive game rec- ord at Williams, the Cubs' eft fielder, had been in every Chicago game since Sept. 21, 1967. Elsewhere in the league, St. Louis Cardinals downed the New York Mets 5-3, the Pirates were rained out in Montreal, Cincinnati Reds trimmed San Francisco Giants 7-3, Atlanta Braves routed Los Angeles Dodgers aiid San Diego Padres blanked Houston Astros 4-0. Royals Seeking Alberta Crown With any kind of luck LeU bridge Royals could add a pa of cups to their collection th weekend. Expo Chief Fined MONTREAL (CP) Jim Fanning, general manager i Montreal Expos of baseball1 National League, expressed sur prise Thursday of the suspen sion of manager Gene Mauch. Mauch was given a suspension effective Thursda. and fined 5100 by league presi dent Chub Feeney for tamping plate umpire Paul Pryoi Wednesday night in a game against Pittsburgh Pirates. "Gene's behavior has been ex- cellent all said Fanning "He's been thrown out of only three games and I thoughl they'd take this into considera- tion." Mauch bumped Pryor in the eighth inning of Wednesday's game while protesting a third strike call against Adqlfo Phil- lips. "The bumping was an acci- said Mauch. "I was trying to show him how Phillips checked his swing. He was mov- ing toward me, gesturing that I was out of the game. "The Pirates are out here busting their butts to win a pen- nant, we're out here busting our butts to stop them and I think Pryor should be busting his. I think too many umpires start looking to October at this point of the season and start resting." Mauch is allowed on the field in uniform during batting prac- tice and infield practice but must change and remove him- self from the clubhouse and playing area during the game. Royals, one of two Leth- bridge Soccer clubs, are enjoy- ing the finest season a rLeth- bridge club has had in the" past few years. At present the Royals are the proud possessors of the Scott Cup, which they won in Medi- cine Hat last weekend by an impressive 9-1 count, and could win the Alberta Challenge Cup and the Ritchie Paterson Cup this weekend in the two games they are slated to play. Royals traral to Edmonton Saturday to meet Edmonton Italia in the second game of a two-game, total-point series, rhe locals have a four-goal lead after stopping the visiting Italia club last weekend 6-2 and are strong favorites to win the Alberta title. The Royals will travel to Ed- monton by bus and according o coach Chester Jokuty, there are a number of seats avail- able on the bus for any inter- ested fans who may wish to make the trip. Monday, the Royals will en- ertain Medicine Hat Cantalinis and winner of that encounter will receive the Ritchie Pater- on Cup. The game is set for he Civic Centre pitch at 3 -.m. Meanwhile, it was the same Cantalinis the Royals defeated o win the Scott Cup. Angelo Mauro led the locals vith a three-goal performance. Jennis Balazs chipped in with pair while singletons went to 'eter Durrans, John Stropnik, Chester Jokuty and Bob Marsh. A SPECTACULAR trail high in the Rocky Mountains is to be developed for the growing number of Canadians who in this age of car and jet travel like to go on a nice long 360 miles. Jean Chretien, minister of Indian affairs and northern development, in announcing the project said that existing trails in Banff, Jasper, Yoho and Kcotenay National Parks will be interconnected to form the 360-mile Great Divide Trail, which in turn will eventually be linked through southern Alberta and Waterton Lakes National Park with the U.S. Great Divide Trail to form a 500-mile hike over the highest part of the continent. but IS miles of the Canadian portion of the trail now exists and completing the some be given a high priority, Mr. Crctien said. Overnight shelters every eight miles or so will be erected later and the entire project is scheduled for completion by 1975. Existing loop trails will link the Great Divide Trail to the more popular areas of the parks, giving hikers a wide range of options for both long and intermediate walks. The trail is designed for those who are not experienced mountaineers, but access to more difficult areas will also be provided. Tlie idea for the trail was first suggested in 19C7 by PMlippe Delesalle, a Calgary architect and experienced hiker. Studies conducted by the National and Historic Parks Branch con- firmed the possibility and suggested the route. Mr. Chretien said he would be pleased to receive further suggestions about the trail from interested groups and indivi- dual citizens. The Great Divide Trail will lead from Palliser Pass on the southern boundary of Banff National Park along the continental divide to Egypt Lakes, leave the divide hi Kootenay National Park to pass by Floe Lake, skirt Lake O'Hara hi Yoho Na- tional Park and lead via the Amiskwi Valley and Howse Pass back into Banff National Park. In Jasper National Park it will pass through the Maligne Valley into the townsite of Jasper and from there southwest to the boundary of Mount Robson Provincial Park in British Columbia. The great or continental divide is the watershed dividing streams that flow to opposite sides of the continent. Tlie Mets fell from second to third in the East, one game be- hind the Pirates, as Joe Hague ripped a homer and St. Louis jumped to an early 3-0 lead. .The Cards made it 5-1 in the sixth off loser Gary Gentry, 9-8. Steve Carllon, 8-18, picked up tlie victory, giving up nine hits, including a two-run homer by Al Weis in the ninth. Meanwhile Joe Niekro has a cousin named Heggie Smith in the American League. At least Reggie Smith has a cousin named Joe Niekro. "I don't know why I hit him so hard-maybe it's because lie's new hi tlie league this year and f bear down Smith said after rapping a single and homer off Niekro in Boston Red Sox 5-2 victory over Detroit Ti- gers Thursday night. That gave Smith nine hits fa 13 at-bats against Niekro this season, including three homers, and raised his league-leading batting average to .322, two points ahead of California's Alex Johnson. "I know I hit him good, but I hadn't any idea I had nine said Boston's slugging centre fielder. "He's a good pitcher and it's just one of. those things, I remember all three ho- mers and all. have been on dif- "erent pitches. 1 hit a sb'der out tonight. Tlie other two homers were on a fast ball and a change-up." Smith's 22nd homer started Niekro's troubles in the opening inning and the Red Sox kayoed the Tiger right-hander in the third when Smith singled, Carl Yastrzemski doubled and Rico Petrocelli homered. Elsewhere in the AL, Milwau- kee Brewers toppled Minnesota Twins 8-3, California Angels edged Kansas City Royals 1-0, Oakland Athletics overcame the Chicago White Sox 4-3 on a three-run pitch homer by Frank ANDY CAPP TCH.'YER'D AVETHOUGHT ONE Of 'EM WOULb 'AVE OPFEREt" US SEAT, FLO, bON'T UPSET VERSB.F, RET, VER SHDULb KNOW BY NOW THERE'S TWO KINbS OF GENTS Fernandez in the ninth inning, Baltimore Orioles clipped the New York Yankees 8-4 and Cleveland Indians beat Wash- ington Senators 4-2.

From a peak provincial herd of head in 1964, the an- telope were hit by a series of devasling winters, not to men- tion the massive Centennial snowfall in late April and early May of 1967. Some estimates placed the antelope wipe-out at 90 per cent the provincial herd. Last winter was a, mild one. This year's aerial census places the provincial herd at head. A week-long buck's only season is scheduled during the last week in October. Application forms for the 800 permits that will be issued will he available at fish and wildlife offices about Sept. JO. A SURVEY OF MERCURY levels in key species of water- fowl is being prepared by the Canadian Wildlife Service and results will be tabulated before the start of this year's hunting season, according to Dr. A. H. Macpherson, CWS west re- gional director at Edmonton. Last fall the CWS collected 120 ducks and an analysis of 24 pooled liver samples revealed that only two species mer- ganser and lesser scaup showed mercury levels exceeding the tolerable maximum of 0.5 parts per million. It's noted that the mercury level found in tba liver is far higher than that found in the flesh. The highest level was found in immature mergansers from Alberta grasslands at 1.9 parts per million.
