Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - September 10, 1973, Lethbridge, Alberta 10 THE LETHBRIDGE HERALD Monday, September 10, 1973 Argonauts add to eastern lead Esks, Stamps gain ground Still unhappy with performance Saunders snaps record By PAUL CARBRAY VANCOUVER (CP) Yvonne Saunders, a Jamaican gift to Canadian track, snapped the Canadian open and native record Saturday in winning the women's 400- metre run at the Canadian track and field cham- pionships. The 21-year-old, celebrating her Sept. 1 application for Ca- nadian citizenship, led from start to finish to win in 52.93 seconds, breaking the Cana- dian open mark of 53.2 seconds set in 1970 by Karen Lundgren of Sweden. The old Canadian native mark, held by Brenda Walsh of Edmonton, was 53.3 seconds. But Miss Saunders, who im- migrated to Canada five years ago. wasn't satisfied with her time. "I don't want to blame it on the track. I'm just not happy with my time. I don't know. I just didn't run my best race. Miss Saunders. who works as a library assistant at the University of Guelph, Ont., said she has run better. "I ran a 51.9 at Munich, when I competed for Jamaica in the Olympics. I'd like to try and do well against some of the girls in the 400 in New- Zealand." SET OTHER RECORD Carmen lonescu of Montreal was the other record setter on the opening day. winning the women's discus with a heave of 55.62 feet, six inches. The toss bettered the Cana- dian native mark of 55.40 met- res set by Carol Martin of To- ronto. Miss Martin was se- cond Saturday with a toss of 53.50 metres and Jane Haist of Toronto was third with 52.12 metres. The men failed to break any- Canadian records, although Phil Olsen. a 16-year-old javelin throwing wizard from Nanaimo. B.C.. set a new world age-class record in winning his event. Olsen fired the spear 74.48 feet, four the best throw ever by a 16year-old. Janis Lusis of the U.S.S.R. held the old mark of 230 feet, 10 inches. Olsen upset Mel Gabrilovic of Toronto, who was second with a heave of 72.04 metres, with Glen Arbeau of Toronto third with a 70.3-metre toss. Biggest upset of the day- came in the men's metres, when favored Grant McLaren of London, Ont. tired badly in the last quarter of the race and sagged to fourth. Canada's best dis- tance runner, led for most of the first three laps before fad- ing. WIN WITH SPURT Paul Craig of Toronto put on a frantic closing spurt to win the 1.500 in a slow Louis Groake of Toronto held off Vancouver's Barry Adams for second. The women's was a different story, with heavy favorite Glenda Reiser leading most of the way by more than 25 yards and coasting in over second-place Thelma Finn-Wright of Van- couver. Miss Reiser, the Ottawa schoolgirl who holds the world mile record, had a time of three seconds off her best, but was never pressed in the race. Claire Morgan of To- ronto was third. Marj Bailey of Vancouver was the only double winner, taking the 100-metre dash in 12.06 seconds over Patti Love- rock of Vancouver and then anchoring the British Colum- bia 4xlOO-metre women's relay team to a victory over Ontario. In the men's 100, three On- tario runners dominated the field in a tight race. Charles Francis of Toronto put on a spurt in the last 10 metres to nip.Marv Nash, also of Toronto. Francis' time of 10.81 seconds was just .04 sec- onds better than Nash. Bob Martin of Hamilton was third, just a steo behind Nash. Ceremony private affair Bobby Orr married PARRY SOUND, Ont.

The ceremony was perform- ed in this community. 150 miles north of Toronto, by Rev. Robert A. Crooks of the Presbyterian church. The OFF AND RUNNING LETHBRIDGE WHOOP-UP DOWNS 7-22 Sports Golden Bears suffer upset EDMONTON (CP) The University of Saskatchewan Huskies turned a fumble by the University of Alberta Golden Bears into a touchdown to beat the defending national champions 22-18 in Western Inter- collegiate Football League Saturday. The Huskies got the ball with less than two minutes remaining when Alberta fullback Dalton Smarsh fumbled at the Bears 50-yard line. Ron Moe recovered for Saskatchewan and ran to the end zone but the ball had been ruled dead by the officials where he picked it up.- The Huskies, led by quarter- back Dave Pickett who hit on 23 of passes, marched down field and Larry Remmen plunged in from two yards for the touchdown. Gord Wentworth kicked the convert, his second of the game, and earlier scored a single on a wide field goal attempt from 27 yards. Gerry Harris and John Konohowski scored the other Saskatchewan touchdowns and Harris kicked a 43-yard single. Brian Adam and quarter- back Gerry Kunyk scored the Alberta touchdowns, and both were converted by Jack Schwartzberg, who also had a 16-yard field goal. Kunyk also booted a 48-yard single. The clubs were even in first downs with the Huskies getting 25 and the Bears 24. The difference in the game, though, was Pickett. who toss- ed for 258 yards, including six throws to Konohowski for 85 yards. The Bears' Kunyk and Larry Tibbie could account for only 47 yards passing on eight completions. wedding took place under a shroud of secrecy with the public unaware that it was pending. The bride wore a pale blue pant suit and the groom wore a light blue business suit. Bobby's sister, Pat Murphy, was the bridesmaid. Her hus- band. Gerald, was best man. There were no guests at the ceremony at the home of the minister. Rev. Crooks said after the ceremony that he was under strict orders from Orr to tell no one where or when the ceremony was to take place. "I think you were parked outside in your van at the time we were conducting the cere- mony." Rev. Crooks told a ra- dio reporter after the cere- mony. "So Bobby and Peggy (Mar- garet) went out the back door and I drove around to the street behind and picked them up there." The game of cat and mouse continued with the Orrs slipp- ing away to his parents home in Parry Sound and later to a party at a curling club. Reporters who tried to ap- proach Orr at the party for pictures and interviews were rebuffed by Orr's brother Ron who said Bobby did not want to talk to anyone. His father. Doug Orr, said earlier in the day that Bobby was fishing. Rev. Crooks confirmed that Bobby in fact had gone fishing the morning of his wedding day. Rev. Crooks said Orr and his bride were to leave Sunday for Boston where they plan to take up residence in an apartment. The minister said none of Orr's team-mates knew of the marriage but that Boston Gen- eral Manager Harry Sinden was informed. Bobby's parents didn't at- tend the ceremony because Margaret's parents were un- able to attend. Rev. Crooks said. The minister said he has known Orr "since he was in knee pants." EDMONTON (CP) Sure- handed George McGowan held on to a crucial pass late in the game that allowed Edmonton Eskimos to rally for a 23-18 victory over Montreal Alouettes in the Canadian Football League Saturday night. McGowan. who leads the CFL in receiving, battled defender Phil Price at the Montreal two for a 44-yard pass from Edmonton quarter- back Bruce Lemmerman. McGowan and Price each held a share of the ball as they tumbled out of bounds with less than a minute remaining. The ball was awarded to the Eskimos and Lemmerman ran two yards on the next play for the touchdown. Edmonton rolled up 375 yards in net offence but could not convert numerous scoring opportunities into touch- downs. Speedy Larry Highbaugh provided the other Edmonton touchdown on a 102-yard kickoff return and Dave Cutler added two converts and three field goals from the 20. 29 and 15. Montreal, which never trail- ed until the last minute, was paced by rookie quarterback Jimmy Jones' 10-yard scoring pass to Peter Dafla Riva. Don Sweet converted both and had a 37-yard field goal and punter Wally Buono contributed a single. The win was costly for Ed- monton they lost defensive halfback Dick Dupuis for about two months when he broke his right arm on a tackle early in the third quarter. In Regina Calgary Stampeders humbled Saskatchewan Roughriders 25-8 before 21.490 fans Sunday as Saskatchewan's Ron Lan- caster became the first Cana- dian quarterback to have more than career pass completions but also threw four interceptions. Calgary, the only team to beat Saskatchewan this season, took a 23-15 verdict when the Western Football Conference teams met in the second game of the year. Calgary led all the way, from Larry Robinson's first field goal in the opening quarter through three more field goals and touchdowns by Rudy Linterman and Frank Andruski. Robinson made one of two convert attempts. Saskatchewan's scoring came on a 68-yard touchdown pass from Lancaster to Tom Campana and a convert and 31-yard single by Jack Abcnds'chan. The win moved Calgary into a tie with Edmonton Eskimos for second in the WFC with 4-3 records, two points behind Saskatchewan.

Argos downed the Ti-Cats 16-7. He doesn't like Barrow Cahill book amusing By GORDON GRANT CP General Sports Editor TORONTO (CP) -Leo Cahill doesn't like John Bar- row. And there are a lot of other people he's not wild about, ei- ther, including most of the board of Toronto Argonauts. Ralph Sazio and Jim Trimble. He makes that clear in a candid book. Goodbye Argos, which he wrote in collabora- tion with Scott Young, a Globe and Mail columnist. Cahill was fired as head coach of the Argos after the 1972 season when Toronto, a highly-paid, star-laden club, finished last in the Eastern Conference of the Canadian Football League. When he was fired he had two years to run on a a-year contract and he's still living in Toronto drawing his pay for not coaching. He blames the firing on a board of directors "who didn't know whether a football was round or square" and on Bar- row, a former Hamilton Ti- ger-Cats star player who the club brought in as general manager while Cahill was coach. Cahill took over the Argos in 1967 when season ticket sales were and after five last- place finishes in a row. By the start of his fifth sea- sales had risen to almost 31.000 and the club had made the playoffs in LEAGUE LEADERS NATIONAL H Pet. Rose. Cin 210 .348 Watson. 170 .318 Cedeno. Hou 147 .315 Cardenal.

Additionally, he had re- cruited some of the best col- lege football players from the United Stillwa- gon. Jim Corrigal, Joe Theis- mann, Leon McQuay and Tim Anderson. He also points out. with some pride, that none of the big-name Americans returned to the U.S. to play in the Na- tional Football League. Other clubs couldn't make such a claim. Cahill says rumors of his fir- ing started after the third game of the 1972 season "nursed along by my real great buddy John who went out "buying beer for some sportswriters and criticizing me behind mv back." OUTSMARTED SAZIO The dislike of Sazio really is a mutual antipathy because, Cahill says, he outsmarted the Ticats in signing receiver' Eric Allen. When Montreal was looking for a coach, shortly after Cah- ill's firing, Leo was told by a Hamilton sportswriter "Sazio phoned Sam Berger, the Mon- treal owner, and advised him not to hire me because I was bad for the league." Predicts no contest this time All's career at stake rincess Princess Anne of England tumbles over, top, after falling with her horse dur- European equestrian championships. In the bottom photo she picks herself up. It was feared she may have a broken collarbone. INGLEWOOD, Calif. (AP) Muhammad Aii, his career at the crossroads, fights tonight against Ken Norton, the man who beat Ali and broke his jaw last March. Aii is a 12-5 favorite to win the scheduled 12-round bout at the Forum and remain an im- portant fighter. A second straight victory over the former world heavyweight champion would put Norton into boxing's big- money bracket after years of fighting for "nickles and dimes." Aii weighed 212 pounds, the lightest he's been in several years at the official weigh-in ceremonies a't 3 p.m. EOT, Sunday in the ballroom of a hotel near the Forum. He weighed 221 when he lost a split 12-round decision to Norton March 31. Norton scaled 205 compared to 210 for the first fight. "I plan on fighting cham- pion George Foreman as soon as I can get said the 28- ycar-old Norton who is guaranteed against 30 per cent of all income from the closed-circuit televised fight scheduled to begin at p.m., EDT. EARNINGS WERE SMALL The quietly-confident Californian, who took up box- ing in the Marine Corps and turned pro at the age of 22. got for the first Ali fight. Before that his biggest purse in a career of 30 victories and just one loss was Ali, who got million in his loss to Joe Frazier, is guaranteed against 35 per cent for the fight which he said will be no contest. "This time I'm 100-per-cent right." he said. "Same Nor- ton. No contest." But Ali, away from crowdds of sports writers and onlookers, has said if he loses this time, he would be con- vinced he was washed up because this time I'm in shape. I beat myself the first time." Norton and his trainer, Ed- die Futch. point out that even if Ali is in condition he also is 31 and that his age will force him to come down off his toes and fight Norton's fight. PLAYS DOWN PROWESS "Everybody seems to think Ali is said Futch. "I think the man has deteriorated in a natural mariner. When you are 31 you act like 31." This will be Ali's 14th fight since he returned to the ring after being banned and stripped of the championship for his refusal to be drafted. It will be his 44th bout in a career that includes 41 vic- tories. 10 of them in fight-, for one of sports' biggest prizes heavyweight championship. One of the chief criticisms of Norton is that except for Ali his record is filled with jour- neymen opponents such as James J. Woody, Vic Brown and Charlie Harris. Critics also note that he was knocked out by Jose Luis Garcia. Norton said that he was overconfident for the Garcia fight which was the 17th of his career. Today's fight is expected to draw a crowd of at least and a live gate of The Forum is scaled from to making it the highest priced fight ever in California.
