Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - September 8, 1972, Lethbridge, Alberta 8 THt IETHBRIDCE HERALD Friday, September 8, 1972 WHILE SCORES of southern Alberta hunters arc starting to sharpen up the old shooting eye, angling is just starting to come into Us own. Waier levels are receding and holes are forming in the streams. And, grasshoppers appear to be most productive. The hoppers are a good bet not only in the streams, but in the lakes as well. Lunker trout are showing up in both the streams and the water im- poundments. At the same time the grayling, or Rocky Moun- tain whitefish run is getting under way along the eastern slopes of the Rockies. A good sharp frost should knock down the in- sects and make angling that much better. Frost should also retard weed growth, or better yet, knock down the weeds as well. I Even with the improved angling in the streams, water levels are still well up and will probably con- tinue to remain that way. That record snowfall of the past winter caused this to happen. AS FAR AS WATERTON is concerned, all waters remain open until Sept. 30. On that weekend the main lake closes for another year. So does Cameron Lake and creek and Cramlell Lake. The high lakes close Oct. 15. Indications are there should be plenty of motel and campground space at Waterton until sometime early in October. Some have already closed, but sev- eral are remaining open for another month. FOR THOSE WHO HAVE VISITED Uie subalpine districts where the big game hunting lias opened, it has been pretty well all disappointment. JJaylims tem- peratures have been near the 70 above mark and the nighttime breezes have been anything but warm. While there has been some frost and snow in the back country, there is still- an abundance of green growth right to treeline. The animals are in good shape and exception- ally hard to see In the dense growth. More than the usual number of black bears have been seen and hunters are advised to purchase their special bear licences in advance if they want to take a bear. ARE ADVISED the antelope draw is taking place at the present time and the results should be known during the coming week. On other items, the Coaldale Fish and Game As- sociation will hold its first meeting of the new season Tuesday, Sept. 12, at 8 p.m. Bring a friend.

I1IUICE I.EVETT Canadian Press Sports Editor MUNICH (CP) Nobody liought much of it the last time United States came away an Olympic Games M'ith- ut a sprint gold medal. It hap- pened in 1908, before they llowed tlie first woman to lace Irack shoe and before essc Owens had oven been orn. American men and women :ollected five of the six avail- able golds available, in the 100 and 200 metres and the sprint clay, in each of the last two Olympics. In the current ames, with only the relays they have yet to pick up heir first. They might have beaten Valery Borrov in the men's 100 f their runners had made it to he track in time for their heats, although nobody missed roll call when the Russian won .he 200. But the decline of the Ameri- can sprinter was most con- vincingly shown Thursday when Renate Stecher of East Ger- many completed her double hi he women's 200. NO U.S. FINALIST There wasn't a U.S. uniform in sight. No American girl was able to reach the final. With Monica Zehrt's victory n the 400, the East German girls had proved themselves the fastest at any distance up to once around the track. The Russians took over at metres, winning both semi-fi- nals, one of them in world record time. Russia was the big winner Thursday, taking four of tire first-place golds. Anatoly Bondarchuk won the hammer throw; Nadezhda Chiz- iiova took the women's shot put; the equestrian team won .he dressage and in another team event, the Russian women beat Japan to win the gold medal in volleyball. The other golds Thursday were won by the U.S., in the men's 110-metre hurdles and 400-metre dash, and the Nether- lands, when Hennie Kuiper took the individual road race. The win was especially grat- ifying for Kuiper as the bronze he won earlier had been taken away because one of his team members had taken a drug which was banned by the Inter- national Olympic Committee. In the unofficial point stand- ings, based on the traditional 10-M-3-2-1 systems for the first six finishers, the U.S. remained on top with 597 points. Russia is second with 558 and E. Germany has 432V4. Canada is in 17th place with 32 points, Canada's best showing ThurS' day was in dressage of the equestrian event. The team finished sixth be- liind. winning Russia. Christilot Hanson of Sharon, Ont., was eighth in the individual and be- came the first Canadian rider to win a place in the top 12 for the individual dressage final. Canadian canoeists also faired well as three were good enough iu second-chance repe- clrages to advance to the semi- finals and two others won auto- matic berths when an adequate number of teams did not show to run races. Canada's hopes of r. medal in track and field practically van- ished when 'Glenda Reiser of Ottawa finished fifth in a semi- final heat of the women's metrc run. The 17-year-old Grade 12 stu- dent, who raced in the same company as world-champion Ludmila Bragina of Russia in the preliminaries and was sec- ond, was boxed in early and pushed outside later. "You must remember she is only a 17-year-old girl and now she knows what this is all said her coach, Don Steen of Vancouver." "I'm amazed how tough she is and competitively she's now Harrold named LMHA president The Lethbrldge Minor Hock- ey Association held its annual meeting for the election of ol- ficers for the 1972-73 season Thursday night.

INCIDENT CAUSES BAN Julius left, of Kenya, stands at allenlion dur- ing the playing of the U.S. National Anthem Thursday at the 400-melres medals cere- mony, but U.S. gold medalist Vincenl Matthews, centre, and Wayne Collett, silver win- ner, slouch with hands on hips. Their attitude led to Olympic Commitlee banning the two stars from all future Olympic competition. (AP Wirephoto) Two American runners banned by committee MUNICH (AP) The Inter- national Olympic Committee executive board today banned United States track stars Vin.ce Matthews and Wayne Collelt from all future Olympic com- the 4-X-400- metre relay of their behavior on the victory An IOC spokesman said a let- ter about Matthews and Collett has been sent to Clifford Buck, the U.S. chief of mission, tell- ing him of the banning follow- ing the incident Thursday. Tiie spokesman said: "The IOC has expressed to Mr. Buck its' displeasure and disgust at the demonstration by the.Amer- ican athletes after the 400 met- res final. Matthews won the gold medal and Collett was second. On the victory stand they did not stand at attention during the playing of the American anthem. The DeMoiit loses gold medal MUNICH (AP) The Inter- national Olympic Committee to- day stripped United States swimmer Rick DeMpnt of the gold medal he won in the 400- metre freestyle and moved Brad Cooper of Australia into first place, an IOC spokesman announced. The IOC rejected a U.S. ap- peal that DeMont be allowed to keep the medal which taken from him after a positive drug test. The Americans ar- gued the lest was positive be- caiLse of a medication DeMont regularly took for an asthma condition. DeMont, K, bad liealen Cooper by only onc-hundrcdlh of a second. In taking away his medal, the IOC spokesman said, it was de- cided that Cooper would move up to the gold medal position and that Steven Center of tho U.S. will move lo second from third. But the spokesman said no other places will be changed and the bronze medal position would be vacant. crowd whistled and jeered. Matthews later said Ihey did not inlend to he disrespectful. The IOC told Buck in Us let- ter, "This is the second time the U.S. Olympic Committee has permitted such behavior on the athletics field." This apparently referred to [he incident in Mexico City four years ago when John Carlos and Tommie Smith gave Black Power salutes on the victory stand. The letter added: "The whole world saw the disgusting be- havior of your two athletes when they received their med- als." The IOC spokesman made no mention that Matthews and Col- lett would be deprived of their medals. Presumably they will not. The IOC announcement on Matthews and Collett came shortly before they were to go before the U.S. Olympic Com- mittee, which is reported to he considering sending them home. At the traditional victory cer- emony, Collelt, barefooted, leaped up on tho higher No. 1 stand occupied by Matthews. They laughed and chatted while comparing medals and, during the playing of the U.S. national anthem, turned side- ways, their shoulders slouched. Collett had his hands on his hips. Normally athletes stand at rigid attention out of respect to their flag. As they left the stands, the two Americans twirled their medals and Mat thews raised both hands as he leaped off the No. stand. The crowd of at the Olympic Stadium whistled and jeered. Collett, just before entering the portal to the undergrount dressing room, answered the howling crowd with a clenchec fist salute. Matthews said Collett gave the salute to friends sitting in the stands.
