Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - September 6, 1974, Lethbridge, Alberta LETHBRIDGE September Travelling to Eastern Canada Book now on the 8 to 30 day excursion (Effective Oct. 1) and Save ART WILLIAMS TRAVEL C.nlr. VIII w Mill_______________________ Herald Sports Pat Sullivan This one was the best I would be remiss if I did not, despite the lapse of time, say that this year's Southern Alberta golf tournament, held this past Labor Day weekend at Henderson Lake, was the best I can recall. Old-timers tell me that they have seen a bigger draw than the 204 that took part in the three day event. I know I haven't seen any that big. On the whole, the show went smooth. Oh there were some complainers but you find them all the time. They pay and feel they have exclusive rights to all the privileges, they are fooling only themselves. No, club professional Earl Francis saw to it that things were under control at all times. And Tom and Millie Snowden, along with all the other people that made the tourney the success it was, are to be commended. Included in the list, and high on it, is Robert Loftus. I don't think I would find many dis- senters who could complain about the shape the course is in. In the short time Loftus has been at the Lake Layout he has whipped it into shape. He was told it would a challenge and he met it head on One of the keys to the success of the tourney, from where I sit anyway, was the locals who were front and centre when the silverware was being passed out. Calgary golfers seem to bask in the limelight when the dust settles on most major Lethbridge tournaments. But not this time around. f The smile on Cliff Stroh's face from ear to ear. Stroh can smile with the best of them but this time he out did himself and rightly so. He has come so close on occasion and yet fell short. His victory was doubly satisfying to him after a summer of back problems. And then he says he hasn't been playing all that well. I would hate to see him when he gets hot. Stroh himself admitted that he would have liked to have Keith Alexander or Doug Silverberg in the field. That, he said, would have been even more gratifying. Silverberg and Alex- ander are two of the top amateurs in the province. Nothing, however, could dull Stroh's victory. Even the horse race was a two man Lethbridge show. After Jim Loftus bit the dust on the second last hole clubmates Lloyd Kanewischer and Tom Gelleny went at it for top honors. As Gelleny put it "I gave him the keelance of hearts." In other words the nine of hearts. Peter Morley, and I can't recall seeing Peter's name in the list of prizes in any other Lake tourney, made it three-for-three for Henderson Lake golfers as he won low net. It used to be that the low gross competitors stole the show. Now, however, the scene has changed somewhat as the battle for low net honors is just as fierce and the prizes almost com- parable to the ones given in the low gross category. Yes. this year's Southern Alberta had a little bit of everything. Bill Persley fired a whole in one and came away from the three-day event with as appropriate a prize as a golfer could ask for. a year's free membership to the course. And last but not least Gerry Probe, according to very reliable sources, became an author. Probe heard the three words golfers dread, "You're Still Away" after he had knocked a putt off the green. The story has it Probe plans to write a book on club selection1 after putting off the green.

(CP) The "old men" of Team Canada 74 opened their exhibition hockey series Thursday night with a 7-2 vic- tory over a team of junior all- stars, but the margin surpris- ed nobody. What was far more impor- tant to coach Billy Harris and general manager Bill Hunter was the way the World Hockey Association veterans matched the Western Canada Hockey League players in speed and stamina.

"They picked their spots and they did almost what they wanted to do" Bobby Hull missed the spot twice, hitting the goal post each time, but still managed three goals against junior net- minder Larry Hendrick. "He was really firing the said Hull's linemate Johnny McKenzie. "I was standing in front of the net once and the puck whistled past my head.

Sure, we run a very simple business at my dealership. But that doesn't mean we're not a competitive dealership at the same time. The fact is that we're very competitive at each step in the sale of a new car. The generous ap- praisal we make of the car you want to trade. The price discounts we provide. And the down payment and monthly payments we figure with our reasonable financing plan. This is how we gained the lead. And so far nothing has approached the way we sell cars.

Lecture Theatre No. 7 Southern Alberta Zone Canadian Ski Patrol System played with two different sets of wingers at times in the first period, scored twice for the pros. Gavin Kirk and Pat Stapleton scored once each. Pat Price, a defenceman signed after last season by Vancouver Blazers, drilled a high shot past Gerry Cheevers in the second period for one junior goal. Don Ashby of Calgary Centennials put a shot between Don McLeod's legs in the third period for the other. Price, a Team Canada member, joined the juniors to add strength. Centres Backstrom and Andre Lecroix continued to play well and Serge Bernier had his best outing of the camp However. Jim Harrison and Mike Walton unofficial- ly designated the fourth and fifth centres were among those who sat out the game. WILL CHANGE LINEUP Hunter said there was no significance in the fact they didn't play. Gordie Howe, Kirk and Frank Mahovlich played only in the first period. "We knew we would dress 20. That's all we can dress in Russia. We'll dress a different lineup in the next game." said Hunter. Hendrick blocked 40 shots and looked shaky on only one goal. That was a 50-foot wrist shot by Hull, who caught the young Edmonton Oil Kings goaltender on his heels. Cheevers faced 13 shots in his two periods, and McLeod was tested eight times. The clubs play in Brandon tonight in the second game of their five-game exhibition sw- ing that ends Sept. 12 in Ed- monton. Oil Kings trade four EDMONTON Ed- monton Oil Kings of the Western Canada Hockey League today announced they have traded four players to Kamloops Chiefs to acquire the rights to Paul Mulvey. a promising 15-year-old who is 6-4 and 210 pounds. The Oil Kings traded dcfenceman Bob Waldren, goalie Brian Menderson. winger Craig Topolinsky and winger Jamie Gallimore. Mulvey, called by Oil King coach Ken Hodge "one of the brightest prospects I've ever seen." scored 27 goals last season with Merrill of the British Columbia Junior League Mulvey will probably play left win LETHBRI06E OFFICE FURNITURE LTD.

Closed Red Sox drop behind Yankees THE CANADIAN PRESS Gorman Thomas took up where he left off in the minor leagues when he joined Mil- waukee Brewers for an American League baseball game in Boston Thursday night. The outfielder, who hit 51 homers for Sacramento of the Wings get netminder tutoring DETROIT (AP) Veteran goalie Denis DeJordy was hired Thursday to coach Detroit Red Wings' net- minders, the National Hockey League team said "because coach Alex Delvecchio knows he doesn't know enough about goaltending to teach it." Team spokesman John Bell said he believes DeJordy is the first assistant coach ever taken on with full-time responsibilities to tutor net- minders. The 35-year-old DeJordy was expected to be on hand when the Red Wings open fall training Sept. 9 in Hartland, Mich. A native of St. Hyacinthe. Que., DeJordy tended goal in the NHL for 15 seasons, appearing in 316 games, 25 with Detroit. He posted a lifetime goals against average of 3.49. He spent last season with Baltimore Clippers of the American Hockey League, on loan from the Wings. Bell said Delvecchio viewed the addition to the coaching staff "as an important in- novation" in the NHL. Pacific Coast League this sea- son, hit another against the sagging Red Sox to give the Brewers a 4-3 win. Thomas failed to get the ball out of the infield in his first three times at bat, but hit one out with a man on base and one out in the ninth to break a 2-2 tie. The defeat dropped the Red Sox a half game behind New York Yankees in the American League East, knocking them out of the lead for the first time since July 14. The Yankees and Baltimore Orioles, who remained two games behind New York, both were idle Thursday. In Thursday's other American League games, Minnesota Twins trimmed Kansas City Royals 4-1, Oakland A's blanked Texas Rangers 3-0, and Chicago White Sox nipped California Angels 1-0. Philadelphia Phillies edged Chicago Cubs 6-5 in 11 innings in Thursday's only National League game. Thomas' home-run produc- tion at Sacramento was helped by a 233-foot fence in left field but at Boston his homer cleared the screen atop the 37-foot wall near the left- field foul pole, 315 feet away. Mike Hegan and Pedro Gar- cia had hit solo homers for Milwaukee in the seventh to tie the score against the Red Sox, who lost their seventh in a row Steve Busby failed in his third bid for his 20th win for the Royals when he threw the ball away on a pickoff attempt with the bases loaded in the sixth inning. The Twins scored twice on the play, breaking a 1-1 tie, and the Royals lost their eighth in a row.
