Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - September 11, 1971, Lethbridge, Alberta Murday, leplember 11, THE ifTHBRIDGI HERALD 13 DETERMINATION Billie Jean King grimaces during her malch with 16-year-old tensation Chrij Evert Friday in the U.S. open tennis championships. Miss King won 6-3, 6-2 ending a 46-match winning ilreak for Miss Evert. Imlach happy, players show up By THE CANADIAN PRESS When Buffalo Sabres begin drills today at their National Hockey League training camp at St. Catharines, Ont, general Punch Imlach will have something that was lacking in camp last large group of hockey players. "We sent out 90 invitations but it has been my experience that about 10 per cent get lost somewhere along the way and don't show Imlach said Friday as his players began checking in at camp. "However, we'll have at least 80 which is a far cry from last season when we went into Pe- terborough for our camp and rounded up another 20 free agents." Four NHL clubs opened their camps Friday and another seven were to start today. Van- couver Canucks start their camp Sunday in Medicine Hat, Alia., and Monday when Chi- cago Black Hawks and Pitts- burgh Penguins get started, the whole league will be in training. The Sabres not only have quantity in training camp but Imlach says he believes they elso have better quality players and also the nucleus of a solid farm system. Gil Perrcault, last year's rookie of the year, will be back, and in camp with him will be Richard Martin, Buffalo's first draft choice acquired from Montreal Junior Canadiens, and Craig Ramsay, their second draft choice from Peterborough Petes. Martin set an OHA Junior A record with 71 goals and Ram- say was captain of the first- place Peterborough club. Im- lach Indicated both players will be given every chance of start- Ing the season in the NHL. As for forming a farm sys- tem, the Sabres operated vir- tually on their own last season but now they are affiliated with Cincinnati Swords of the Ameri- can League and Salt Lake City of the Western League. Besides Buffalo, camps open- ing Friday were New York Hangers at Kitchener, Ont.; St. Louis Blues at Flint, Mich., and Detroit Red Wings, without Gor- die Howe, at Port Huron, Mich. Howe has retired after 25 sea- sons with the Red Wings. Camps opening today were California Golden Seals at Osh- awa, Ont.; Boston Bruins at London, Ont.; Los Angeles Kings at Victoria, B.C.: Minne- sota North Stars at Winnipeg; Montreal Canadiens at the Montreal Forum; Philadelphia Flyers at Ottawa, and Toronto Maple Leafs at Maple Leaf Gar- dens. HAWKS STAY HOME The Pittsburgh camp, opening Monday, is at Brantford, Ont while the Black Hawks train al Chicago Stadium. The Maple Leafs skate for the first time this afternoon anc begin twice-daily workouts Sun- day. One new face in Leafs' camp this season will be Donnie Mai-shall, a veteran utility for- ward drafted from the Sabres in June. The 14 NHL teams will play 69 pre-season games as they prepare for the league's 55th season beginning Oct. 8. Boston, Buffaol, California, Montreal, New York, Pittsburgh, St. Louis, Toronto and Vancouver will play 10 games each, the maximum allowed by tire NHL intra-squad games Los Angeles will play only pre-season games, fewest of any team. Casals reaches tennis finals FOREST HILLS, N.Y. (AP) Rosemary Casals shot her way into the finals of the U.S open tennis championships today with a stunning 6-4, 6-3 victory over an erratic Kerry Melville of Australia. The winner of the Chrls-Ev- ert-Billie Jean Ring semifina' match scheduled for later today will meet the second-seeded Miss Cals in the championship match Sunday. The 24-year-old Miss Melville, seeded No. started off with a bang, leading 3-1 in the first set, but then she lost four slraighl games and the set. LETHBRIDGE FLYING CLUB FALL ACTIVITIES ARE COMMENCING CORN ROAST-Sat., Sept. 11 at 8 p.m. TIFFIN FARM 1V4 MILES EAST OF AIRPORT ALL MEMERS URGED TO ATTEND BRING YOUR GUESTS IF YOU WISH Braves gtre Giants another jolt Aaron's booming bat thunders after rain delay By THE ASSOCIATED PRESS Hank Aaron pounded his 40th homer of the season Friday night after a rain delay of two hours 19 minutes to give Atlanta Braves a 7-3 victory in 11 in- nings over the floundering San Francisco Giants. The foss left Los Angeles Dodgers, who defeated San Diego Padres 6-2, only games out of first place in the National League West, a spot held by San Francisco since April 12. Just one week ago, the Giants held an Svi-game lead. But they have lost their last six games while the Dodgers have won their last five. Elsewhere in the National League, St. Louis Cardinals edged Chicago Cubs 8-7 in 12 in- nings, Pittsburgh Pirates lost 3- 2 in 11 innings to Montreal Expos, Houston Astros trimmed Cincinnati Beds 1-0 and New York Mels edged Philadelphia 4-3. GIANTS WERE AHEAD The Giants had a 1-4 lead in the top of the llth' when the rains came. A rain-out would have washed out the Giants' lead, since the would revert back to the last complete inning. But be- cause of the contest's bearing on the pennant race, the um- pires were determined to make every effort to get the game completed. Before the rains came, At- lanta had men on first and sec- ond with no men oat. Jerry Johnson was on the mound for the Giants. After the rains finally stopped, Atlanta still had men on first and second with none out. And Johnson was still on the mound for the Giants. When play finally resumed, Johnson fanned Ralph Garr. Then Aaron cracked his three- run homer, No. 632 of his car- eer to end the marathon, which lasted six hours from start to finish. Aaron's home run set a ma- jor-league record by giving him seven seasons with 40 or more homers. DODGERS SCORE LATE The surging Dodgers, mean- wlule, pushed across four runs in the ninth to beat San Diego, with Maury Wills and Bobby Valentine batttag in one apiece and Willie Davis driving home the final two. The league's leading hitter, Joe Torre, got only one against the Cubs, but it came at the right time. His single in the 12th inning drove in Lou Brock who had doubled. Jack Billingham fired a two- hitter and Cesar Cedeno prov- ided the only run with a first-in- ning double as Houston stopped Cincinnati. Injury-plagued left-hander Jerry Koosman went 8 1-3 in- nings, then got relief help from Danny Frisella as the Mets trimmed the Phils. Consecutive two-out singles by Rusty Staub, Bobby Wine and Bob Bailey gave Montreal its llth inning triumph over Pitts- burgh. Mike Cuellar joined one club but Mickey Lolich blew his bid for exclusive membership in an- other one. Cuellar, Baltimore's brilliant lefthander, joined Orioles team- mates Dave McNally and Jim Palmer as en IB-game winner Friday night with a three-hit, 7- t victory over Washington Sena- tors. But Lolieh, Detroit Tigers' workhorse bidding to break out of a tie with Oakland Athletics1 Referees camp held TORONTO (CP) With most of the teams in the National Hockey League opening thei; training camps this weekend, Scolty Morrison, reforee-in-chief for the league, said Friday that he and his officials will hold a training camp of their own. The camp starts Sunday at Brantford, Onl., and winds up next Thursday, one day prior to the start of the cdiibilion sea- son. Under the supervision of Mor- rison and his tliree supervisors, Frank Udvari, Dutch van Dee- leu and Dan McLeod, 42 offi- cials including all NHL referees and linesmen will undergo tests and training in preparation for Lhe coming season.

Aerial survey data completed by the fish and wildlife division during late July indicated a 1971 antelope population in Region 1, south of the Oldman and South Saskatchewan Rivers, of approximately animals. This estimate is similar to the estimate for 1970 indicating average adult over-winter survival with slightly below average kid production. The effects of the severe winter in this region may have been mark- ed by the winter migration of a portion of these an- telope into Montana. The season in 1970 in this area resulted in the harvest of 480 male antelope. A decrease in the antelope population in Region 2, can be directly related to the severe winter of 1970-71 as there was no hunting season in this area in 1970. A decrease of approximately 40 per cent in the antelope population occurred on the department of national defence property at Suffield and a decrease of 35 per cent occurred in the remainder of Region 2. The total Region 2 population is estimated at approx- imately head. This population decrease can be related to a very low kid production and high over- winter mortality. A very conservative "male only" antelope season has been declared for antelope areas A, B, C and F in Region 1, from Oct. 25 to 30. There will be 250 permits for each of the four areas. Saskatchewan and Montana will issue and permits respectively. Season dates for Saskatch- ewan are Oct. 25 to Oct. 30. This will be the first time that Saskatchewan and Alberta have held con- current seasons. Montana's season dates are expected to be similar to last year's which were Oct. 11 to Nov. 8. Antelope licences will be available at to Al- berta residents only. They can be obtained by special application, subject to a draw, similar to previous years. The priority system available to unsuccessful applicants will not be in effect this year. Application forms will be available by mid-September at all fish and wildlife offices. Deadline for application for permits is Oct. 2. HUNTERS CAN HELP themselves and provide a valuable service to the fish and wildlife division this fall by being a little extra alert when they are out in the field. During the past year the fish and wildlife division has tagged elk in the west country and antelope in the southeastern corner of the province. Each animal that was tagged has a different colored, or colors of neck bands. Both males and females have been tagged. If the season is open, and all conditions of the current regu- lations can be met, the tagged animals may be taken. Location of the kill should be noted and the band turned in at the nearest wildlife office. In addition to the colored band, the animal should also have a metal ear tag. The fish and wildlife division would, however, also like to know even if you only spot a tagged ani- mal. Information wanted is the general location of the tagged animal, date seen and the color, or colors of the neck band. Morley Barrett of Lethbridge, wildlife biologist for the south country, is in charge of the tagging pro- gram and the survey. He hopes to be able to establish the travel patterns and habits of the elk. A critical point is to establish the winter ranges of the herds and hopefully, to eventually have these areas set aside and protected from development. With the antelope, Morley hopes to be able to again pattern the winter ranges and the migration of the antelope back and forth between Alberta, Mon- tana and Saskatchewan. He also hopes to find some more answers to the 'why' of the ups and downs in the productivity of the antelope. IN BIG GAME ZONE 10, where the season on moose and elk opened Tuesday, there has been little activity windy and little calling. There's been snow only on the mountain peaks for the most part, making tracking difficult. Bugling should be better after the middle of the month.

(AP) Gay Brewer's hot putter de- stroyed John Miller's five-shot load Friday and the two golfers reached the halfway point of the Southern open golf tournament tied for the lead with 132s, eight under par. Brewer fired a five-under-par 30 on the back side of the Green Island Country Qub course, birdied 11 through 14, holed a 15 Rustlers fined RED DEER Deer Rustlers have been fined for tampering with players of the now-defunct Ponoka Stam- peders, Jim Scoular of Calgary, president of the Alberta Junior Hockey League, announced Friday. Scoular said when the Ponoka franchise was transferred to Drumheller earlier this year the league adopted an agreement whereby all players would be- come the property of the new entry. "The fact the players became free agents under Canadian Amateur Hockey Association rules when Hie franchise was transferred has no bearing on this league's agreement which was designed to provide con- tinuity and balance to the said Scoular. The players involved are dc- fcncemen John Simkin, Joe Murphy and Dune Grant and conlre Darryl Wallis, all of whom have signed with the Rustlers for the 1971-72 season.
