Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - September 4, 1971, Lethbridge, Alberta Jniurdny, Seplembur 4, 1971 "HI IETHBRIDGE HRAlD IX HE FLJES THROU6H THE AIR Toronto Metros' soccer goalie Dick Howard know- thnt he has to be on (or off) his Ices all the time, especially with a group of would-be watching his every move. Witt they accept? Canada gets invitation MONTREAL (CP) Despite all the hassles between Cana- dian amateur hockey officials and Iheir counterparts in world amateur hockey circles, Canada still has an invitation to send a team to the 1972 Winter Olym- pics in Sapporo, Japan. The invitation, acknowledged by some and disclaimed by oth- ers, will be the subject of meet- Ings between Canadian amateur hockey and Olympic officials within the next week. An official of the Canadian Olympic Association said Fri- day that COA president Harold Wright of Vancouver and Joe Kryczka of Calgary, president of the Canadian Amateur Hockey Association, were scheduled to meet to discuss the Invitation but both men later de- nied the report. Kryczka said however that he would be happy to have a meet- Ing with COA officials If they have anything lo disuss. Frank Shauglmessy of Mont- real, vice-president of the COA said the meeting was to have been held within a few days so the two parties could try to iron but the internal strife and confu- sion that currently surrounds the possibility of a Canadian team participating at Sapporo. Ever since the CAHA decided to withdraw from world compe tition over a year ago, there have been threals and counter- threats between the interna- tional body and the Canadian group concerning Canadian par- ticipation at the international level in hockey. The latest threat came re- cently from John F. (Bunny) Ahearne of London, president of the Inlemalion fee Hockey Fed- e r a t i o n who Ihreatened the CAHA with expulsion from the world hockey body.

BENY CHEVROLET OLDSMOBILE OK SUPERMARKET CAR fOT Phono 327-3143 The CAHA, as Canada's gov- erning hockey group, withdrew from all international hockey after Ahearne refused the Cana- dian teams the right to use pro- fessionals in world competition. Canada withdrew before the world championships which were lo be held in Montreal and Winnipeg in March, 1970. The issue, flaring anew with the Japanese invitation, could lead to B possible confrontation between One two Canadian groups, the COA and the CAHA FAVORS AJIATEUH TEAM The COA favored sending an all-amateur team to the Olym- pics and said that it has re- ceived an invitation from the Olympic committee. The CAHA chose to stick by its original de- cision to withdraw from interna- lional competition at all levels and claimed no knowledge of the invitation. Following this standoff, Shaughnessy produced a copy of the original Japanese invitation dated July 20 and addressed to Wright. He said it was custom- pry for the invitation to come to the Olympic body rather than to individual sports federations in the country. Shaughnessy said the COA then advised the Japanese that a reply would be forthcoming within the next few weeks. Scheduling for the hockey tour- nament will be done at a meet- ing in Prague, Sept. 21, and (lie Canadian decision must be made known by then. Shaughnessy also said he had repeatedly urged the CAHA to allow Canadian participation at Sapporo in letters written dur- ing the last hro years but said he had no direct contact with he hockey body about the invi- tation. However, he snid he be- lieves the CAHA received e copy of the invitation. If three groups. Ihe ITHF, the CAIIA and the COA were not enough to confuse the issue, the emergence of a Ca- nadian TnlCTCollcRiale AtMetic to make Ule ronlroversy even more interest- ing. Ed Enos, nlhlcUcs director for Monlrenl's Loyola College, and Clare Duke of the University of Alberta both have offered ID form college teams to represent Canada at Uie Winter Games, Shaughnessy said.

The only way, it would now appear, that Calgary Stampeders were going to hand the Winnipeg Blue Bombers any kind of loss this past Wednesday eve- ning would have been to challenge the Bombers to a pole climbing contest. The more you think about it the funnier it gets. You might say the Bombers slipped it to the Stam- peders. It was pretty slick thinking on somebody's It will be sometime before Reno Lizzi recovers from the shock after the news out of Spokane Fri- Lizzi, Lethbridge's answer to all of Walter O'Mal- ley's problems, will now have to travel to either Los Angeles or Albuqurque, New Mexico to see his be- loved Dodgers or Indians. Rumor has it Lizzi was heard to say "why wouldn't they consult me before such a when he heard the news. Speaking of the Dodgers. They seem lo have run out of steam in their chase after the west division pennant. They are, at this time, BVz games behind San Francisco and not gaming. According to a reliable source one of their prob- lems, one which accounts for about one-quarter of their losses, has been the positioning of Richie Allen at third and Maury Wills at short-stop. It seems Wills has slowed just enough to leave a hole that the also-slow Allen can't cover, thus accounting for more base hits and more runs. I wonder if the Canadian Broadcasting System considers Hal Ledyard Canadian content? I for one certainly hope so because if the Cana- dian Football League and the CTV network are wast- ing American content on Ledyard they are getting rt-changed. As a player Ledyard couldn't throw well enough to make it pay with Ottawa Rough Riders and Win- nipeg Blue Bombers and he isn't any better behind ucrophone. What ever happened to Al McCann and Ken Newans, for example, as color men? Much better choices, from this desk, than Ledyard, they're lucky to get in two words before the game and a feature lalf-time. The quality of play in the CFL has improved so lets show an improvement in the home-enjoyment end Anyone interested in getting a first-hand look al a National Hockey League team training camp can do so this month by travelling to Medicine Hat. Vancouver Canucks, heading into their second sea- son of existence under hockey's big top, mil open their pre-season camp at the Gas City Sept. 13. Isn't it funny.

It certainly does say a lot for a city the size of Medicine Hat when larger centres don't even have ice for a junior hockey team. The announcement out of Regina this past week that Lethbridge's Earl Ingarfield had signed to coach the Pats this winter in the Western Canada Hockey League was a pleasant surprise to your correspondent. Ingarfield, who hung up his blades following the 1970-71 season with Oakland Seals, leaves the city for Regina Sept. 14 to assume his new duties. It will be a new experience for Ingarfield but one he is looking forward to with a great deal of anti- cipation. The popular Lethbridge native son had hopes of possibly coaching. Like he said after retiring. "I don't want to leave the game entirely." Hockey and Ingarfield are back together. With a little bit of luck Inky and his charges will be heard from before the year is out. One thing for certain, you get less injuries behind the bench.
