There seems to be much truth In this quotation although some would readily question its valid- ity. If you're one of these skep- tics, it would be most enlight- ening to discuss this quotation with Kurt Mitchell, a former Lethbridge resident now resid- ing in Calgary. You see, Kurt has been con- fronted with this very problem in the world of sports to no fault of his own. The 21-year-old Calgarian, the son of Mr. and Mrs. Morris Mitchell of Lethbridge, has be- come one of the top Canadian prospects in the sport of rifle shooting, but has now run into the problem of finding top-cali- bre coaches accessible to help increase his proficency. As he put it, "Canada has a deficiency of top-ranking coach- es, therefore, leaves it up to the individual to find his own mearr for improvement. My immediate goal is to repre- sent Canada in the 1976 Olym- pic Games to be held in Mont- real, but in order to reach Olym- pic standards, it would mean exceptionally hard work. The only way I could possibly learn Deadly eye Kurt Mitchell, a former Lethbridge resident now residing in Calgary has his sights .set or> the 1976 Olympic Games to be held in Montreal. The 21-year-old sharpshoot- er is currently the top Canadian prospect in the sport of rifle shooting and will be considered a master shooter in the near future. (See Tiger-Cats weren't only thing hot Monday night is through reading articles pub lished on rifle shooting; watcl other top shooters in action and pick up hints; and practice about three hours a day. Prac ticing the threa hours a day i a current daily routine, but the other two means of improve- ment could be hard to accom plish. Books written on th sport of rifle shooting are a scarcity and learning from oth ers could mean plenty of tra veiling." Kurt will have a fine oppor- tunity to learn in the latter method as he was selected to the national team which will compete in the Federation of Americas International Match- es to be staged in Mexico in the distant future. The FAIM will include all the top rifle shooters from Canada, United States and Mexico. Although this and possi- bly other international matches will help increase his standard of proficency, he feels the sport of rifle shooting must have government support. "Canadian shooters have an excellent chance to win a few gold medals in the '76 Olym- pics, but in order to be really competitive the federal govern- ment must give then- support to bring in some top interna- tional he said. "There's only so much you can learn on your he added. Well, coach or no coach, Kurt seems to have all the desire and ingredients to become a champion. After only seven yaars of competitive shooting, he be- came the national champion of all sharpshooters by dominat- ing the Canadian championship finals in his class at Winnipeg, recently. Kurt, who received his early training from Frank and Eve- lyn Laffingwell of Lethbridge, was obviously the bast at his level as he walked away with five titles which included the four prone matches, prone grand aggregate, three-position matches, standing three-posi- tion aggregate and the three- position grand aggregate. Now ranked as the fourth best in Canada, Kurt will offi- cially jump to the masters level after competing in the FAIM. Only four levels deter- mine the competency of shoot- ers and 4hey include marks- man, sharpshooter, expert and master. It's obvious then that Kurt Mitchell could possibly be Can- ada's hope for a gold medal in the 1976 Olympic Games. OTTAWA (CP) The weather was a major concern for coach Eagle Keys as he pre- pared his British Columbia jons to meet Ottawa Rough Riders tonight in their second Canadian Football League inter- locking game in three days. Shortly before -the Lions were mauled Monday in Hamilton by the level temperatures in Ham- ilton's Ivor Wynne Stadium were 124 degrees, and some players complained of difficulty 3reathing during the pre-game warmup. At a Tuesday night news con- ference, Keys said he hoped 'for a breath of fresh air" tonight at Lansdowne Park. The is scheduled for 6 p.m. MDT and for national coverage on the CTV television network. The high temperature forecast 'or today is 90 degrees, and high humidity. However, the grass playing surface here does not retain the neat as does the artificial turf elsewhere. MOORHEAD HURT The heat was a decisive fac- tor Monday, but the state of quarterback Don Mocrhead's shoulder may be even more im- portant tonight. The B.C. pivot took a sharp rap on the right shoulder before half time Monday, and another in the same place a few min- utes later. X-rays Tuesday failed to dis- close any problem, but Moor- head was unable to practise with the team and could not throw the ball. That would leave the quarter- backing to rookie Karl Douglas. With flanker Jim Young al- ready sporting a pair of broken fingers that left him barely no- ticeable in the Lions backfield Monday, Keys Tuesday re- ported he had placed Canadian flanker Ross Clarkson on the 30- day disabled broken fingers. And offensive guard Car West was hobbling on a badly sprained ankle. Lions need the game to break a three-way tie with Edmonton Eskimos and Calgary Stampe- ders behind the leading Sas- katchewan Roughriders in the Western Conference. They now lave three wins and as many .osses. Ottawa needs a win even more to have any chance at a playoff berth in the Eastern Conference after dropping four out of their first five games. Running back Art Cantrelle has been plagued since training camp with hip and ankle in- juries, but coach Jack Gotta still wants to use him tonight. A strong running back to com- plement the power of fullback Jim Evenson and to take the >ressure for quarterback Jerry feeling's passing is essential to the Rider fortunes. After watching the Hamilton game Monday, Gotta remained cautious concerning the Lions. Mrs. Court reaches the semi-finals FOREST N.Y. (AP) Margaret Court, the first player to make it into the semi- finals of the U.S. Open tennis championships, is eager to erase two black marks on her Riggs and Chris Evert. "If I win here, I'd have an- other go at him" said Mrs. Court of Riggs, the 55-year-old hustler who humiliated her in a n exhibition match on Mother's Day. Mrs. Court, who downed Vir- ginia Wade of England 7-6, 7-6 in a quarter-final Tuesday, will face the winner of the match between Rosemary Cassals and Miss Evert. It was Miss Evert, the teen- ager from Fort Lauderdale, Fla., who dashed the 31-year-old Australian's chances of winning her second tennis grand slam. Mrs. Court, who had won the Australian and French Opens didn't get to the final at Wim- bledon. Miss Evert beat her 6-1 1-6, 6-1 in a semifinal. In the only other match be- tween seeded players Tuesday Stan Smith, No. 1 seed; rallied for a 3-6, 7-5, 6-3, 6-4 triumph over Tom Gorman, the No. 13 seed from Seattle. "We can't afford a loss we can't afford to assume they'll come in hero flat after a tough game in Hamilton. "We have to assume they'll be even tougher here." Ontario blasts Ebony Hawks HALIFAX (Special) Taber Ebony Hawks were literally shell shocked as they were bombed 24-3 by Ontario in the opening game of the 1973 Cana- dian senior B lacrosse cham- pionship finals Tuesday night. The Alberta representatives are only one of five teams tak- ing part in the four-day nation- al finals. Ontario, British Columbia, Manitoba and host Nova Scotia are the other entries. Quebec was originally slated for action in the championship finals but were forced to drop out. The tourney schedule has now been revised to a single round- robin series with the top two teams earning a berth into the sudden-death final Friday night. Meanwhile in the official tourney opener, Ontario had an easy time against Taber as they outshot the Hawks 52-20 during the three periods of play. Ontario jumped to a com- manding 9-0 lead after the first period and extended it to 13-2 after the second. Tom Bann let the winners with five goals while Ken Boy- chuk netted two and Ken Gre- gus one for the losers. After the loss it was appar- ent to Hawks' manager, Terry Kerkhoff, that Ontario would be the team to beat. "I was overwhelmed and shocked to see how strong the Ontario entry comment- ed Kerkhoff. "They're a professional club, who found it financial impossi- ble to compete at their own level this ssason. They defeat- ed B.C. 15-3 later in the evening and when a club can wallop a coast team like that, they just have to be he add- ed. The Hawks will have two chances to hit the winning trail today as they take on Halifax and Manitoba. 14 YRS. AND UNDER TUES. AND THURS. 6 P.M. Reg.
