Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - September 5, 1974, Lethbridge, Alberta 10-THE LETHBRIDGE HERALD Thursday, September 5, 1974 Travelling to Eastern Canada Book now on the 8 to 30 day excursion (Effective Oct. 1) and Save ART WILLIAMS TRAVEL Centre Village Mall 328-81 Sf The Herald Sports Gomez digs in, he was right THE ASSOCIATED PRESS Preston Gomez is a man who makes his decisions and sticks to them, even three years later. In 1970. Gomez lifted Clay Kirby for a pinch-hitter even though Kirby had pitched eight innings of no-hit ball. Wednesday night Gomez did it Miners host Burns club in final Lethbridge Miners, Alberta senior men's fastball champions, will be out to add the Calgary Major Men's Fastball League title to their laurels this weekend. Miners, who took part in the Canadian senior men's championships in Victoria one week ago, will play host to Burns of Calgary in a best-of- three series. Saturday night the two clubs will tangle at Dave Elton at with two games, if necessary set for Sunday afternoon at one and three. Burns survived a round-robin playoff with Tape Deck and Cowley- Keith to advance against the Miners. The locals got a bye into the final because of their commitments to play in the Canadian finals. Burns lost the first game of the round robin 1-0 to Tape Deck but roared back with three straight wins, 8-5 over Cowley Keith and a pair of identical 4-3 verdicts over Tape Deck. Coach Tom McLean of the Miners expects a very tough series with Burns. "We're Alberta champs." he said, "and they would like nothing better than to knock us off." again, this time to Don Wilson. Wilson had a no-hitter after eight innings against Cincin- nati Reds, but was trailing 2-1 because of a costly throwing error by Roger Metzger. He was lifted in the bottom of the lusty boos from the Astrodome crowd of favor of pinch-hitter Tommy Helms, who grounded out. Reliever Mike Cosgrove gave up a leadoff single to Tony Perez in the top of the ninth, the Padres failed to tie the score in the bottom half of the inning and thus Wilson was saddled with the loss. "There was no discussion on the bench about my Gomez said. "I make my own decisions. The fans didn't bother me. I get paid for winning the ball game, not the no-hitter." Elsewhere in the National League, Los Angeles Dodgers beat San Francisco Giants 6-3, St. Louis Cardinals defeated Montreal Expos 5-4, Atlanta Braves beat San Diego Padres 5-3 and New York Mets de- feated Chicago Cubs 4-2. Wilson was not available for comment after the game. New York Yankees are red hot. Boston Red Sox are red- faced. Their individual predica- ments have given some color to the American League East Division baseball race. The Yankees won their 16th game in their last 20 Wednes- day with a 3-0 decision over Milwaukee Brewers and climbed into a first-place tie with failing Boston in the East. The embarrassed Red Sox made the tie possible by losing a 6-0 decision to Baltimore Orioles, their sixth straight loss and their ninth in the last 11 games. In other American League games. Cleveland Indians beat Detroit Tigers 5-4, Chicago White Sox whipped Kansas City Royals 7-0, California Angels defeated Oakland A's 5-2 and Texas Rangers beat Minnesota Twins 1-0.

Today horsemanship is part of the athletic program at nearly 30 Canadian colleges. "The horse industry is growing rapidly in Western Canada and the LCC felt there was a need for a technical program in the art of stated Dee Olsen, instructor of the course since its incep- tion. Dee is a resident of Leavitt, with 30 years experience around horses and is a graduate of horsemanship schools in California and Mon- tana. Experienced and inex- perienced riders attending the LCC are welcomed at the classes, running from Sept. 1 to Oct. 30. "We start with basic fun- damentals, such as acquiring a balanced seat, and progress at a pace the student can handle. The course covers the basic gaits, dressage movements and culminates with jumping pairs, triples and tandem. We have had riders who've never ridden before jumping with con- fidence at the conclusion of the course." Dee said. The classes are held in the corral area located at the south end of the college. The chill of the late September and October days can be disarm- ing though and both Dee and the students look forward to the day when an indoor facili- ty becomes a reality. Dee uses the technique of practical instruction rather than blackboard teaching, feeling a student can grasp a situation better through ex- ample rather than words.

Complete with a professional caller, the LCC square dance unit has per- formed at horse shows and rodeos throughout Alberta, ranging from Raymond and Coutts to Lloydminster and Rocky Mountain House. Tonight, Friday and Saturday, they will be the featured attraction at the prestigious Lethbridge Rotary Horse Show. This marks the first time the group has been recognized in the city of Lethbridge. The dance routine on horseback has all the fancy moves of dancers afoot plus the added color and excite- ment of the horses. The group, despite their wide appeal and professional presentation, appear gratis as part of the LCC athletic program. The team and the horsemanship class are separate entities. The equestrian team is a hand- picked group while the horsemanship class is open to any student at the college. Each rider on the team is responsible for the care of their individual mount, with the exception of the ferrier work which is looked after bv Dec.
