Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - September 12, 1972, Lethbridge, Alberta 6 THE UTHBRIDCE HERALD TuoKfay, Septtnilwr 12, 1972 Phil Tollestrup was impressed ivitii Munich facilities ic teams will need more money The Canadian government will have to spend a great deal )nore money than it has in the past if there is to be any great improvement in Hie Olympic standing of Canadian athletes. That's (he opinion of Phil Tollestrup, a 22 year old Uni- versity of Lclhuridgc student who recently returned from pre-Olympic basketball (rials in Augsburg, Germany. Tollestrup, a student in tlie faculty of education and a member of the U of L. basket- ball loam, the Pronghorns, was one of the two athletes in Al- berta picked lo jotn the basket- ball team representing Canada at the pro Olympic tourna- ments held earlier this year. His older brother Tim was the second Alberla basketball player in the pre-Olympic team. The men are ttie sons of Marion and Julia Tollestmp of Ray- mond. Financing and the availabil- ity of money for Canada's ath- letes is a major factor deter- mining their showing in I li e Olympic competitions this sum- mer, Tollestrup believes. While in Germany in August, participating in the pre-Olynv pic games lo determine which learns would go to the basket- ball finals, Tollestrup toured the Olympic Village in Mun- ich and was doubly impressed by the facilities and by the fine organization behind the 1972 Summer Olympics. Tollestmp says (hat potential athletes are often not given enough support and encourage- ment in school systems and thus never attain the fine lev- els of performance they should. "Canada might see the light concerning Olympic spending In a few says Phil. "We hosting the 1976 Olym- pics and will have to spend a lot of money and get a lot of people involved to make it a "An athletic program, wheth- er at the high school or uni- versity level, is a good way to get the public actively involved with an educational said Tollestrup. Tollestrup obtained his Ugh school education in Raymond and has just received lu's B.A. degree from Brigham Young University. A physical educa- tion major, he intends to ob- lain his B.Ed, from the Uni- versity of Lethbridge. Tollestrup's pre Olympic journey began in June, when he along with baskelb a 11 players from all parts of Can- ada went to a camp hi Courtney, B.C. From the play- ers there, a team was chosen to represent Canada, Including the Tollestmp brothers. Before going to the pre-Olym- pic tournament in Augsburg, the Canadian basketball team went to Mexico and loured Italy, playing native teams in botli countries. In the pre-Olympic tourna- ment, (he Canadian team placed Clh, losing the Olympic berths lo Spain and Poland.

Leading Boston Red Sox, for example, had their lead trimmed to one-half game by losing to Cleveland Indians 6-5 Monday night on a sacrifice fly that turned into a double play. And Baltimore Orioles closed (he gap with a 3-2 victory over Milwaukee Brewers, thanks to a friendly foul pole that turned a potential home run into a oucl strike. Cleveland's winning run against the Red Sox came on a acrifice fly that outfielder Ben Dgilvie dropped and then clev- erly turned into a double play, erasing what would have been an error for the rookie out- 'ielder. Meanwhile, Baltimore Orioles used Boog Powell's first home run in more than three weeks to trip Milwaukee Brewers. The Orioles had a ninth-in- ning scare as pinch hitter Joe crashed a two-out shot into the right field barely foul. The other East contenders plashed through innings )efore the rain took over anc he Yankees won 4-2. The yic- .ory moved New York into .hird place, Vk games behinc Boston. Detroit slipped to 'ourth, two games off tho Red Sox' pace. GAP CLOSING In the West, Chicago White Sox moved to within two games of Oakland by beating Kansas City Royals 2-1 while tho Ath letics were losing a double header to Minnesota Twins, 2-1 and 3-2. Only three National Lcagui games were played Monday night. New York Mets trimmei Philadelphia Phillies and Stcvi Carlton, 4-2, Montreal Expos shut out St. Louis Cardinals 4-0 and Houston Astros topped Los Angeles Dodgers 4-3.

'Our season opens Oct. 1 in Blairmore against the Red De- ils and we don't even know vhere we stand with regards o a program or season's tick- ts." It was, said Hall, Reddin's ob, in lieu of a salary, to line ip season tickets and sell the irogram. "He told me he lad sold some worth of commented Hall, 'Yet he told Adrian he had up- wards of sold. We don't snow where we stand." So as it stands now the Sugar Cings are owned by Hall, Tren- ini and Uitbeyerse. Meanwhile, Reddin, upon earning of his dismissal from he Kings, stated "I resign rny >osition as coach of the Sugar Cings but I am still a part owner of the club and I mean o make that clear." "I have a legal document, signed by Uilbeyerse and wit- nessed by his wife, to the fact hat I own one-third of the Sugar Kings." Uitbeyerse, on the advice of lis lawyer, returned a certified cheque to Reddin for the amount of the deposit Reddin liad paid. Reddin, on the other hand, says he is the owner of the share and has not received the share from Uitbeyerse. "I gave Uitbeyerse and was fully prepared to pay the remaining when I got the said Reddon. "My lawyer says I am right and that I have a share in the added Reddon. He went on to say that he would sell his share to anyone interested in purchasing it and that they can contact him at Postal Box 6823 Station D, Calgary. What was his reaclion to being fired? "I was all set to move my family here this he said. "I've told the truth, that's all I can say." The Kings will workout this evening at and again Wed nesday at four o'clock at Hen dcrson Ice Centre.

Any boys interested In play ing in the association this com ing winter are asked to registe at Henderson Park Ice Centr any evening between six an nine or Saturday morning from nine until noon. Registrations will close Sal urday, Sept. 23 and no late en tries will be accepted without a valid emergency excuse. Organizers are discussing possibilities Plan similar series next year TORONTO (CP) Lawyer Alan Eaeleson, one of HID ma- jor organizers of Ihe current C a n a d Ti-Ru-s-sia cxliibilion hockey series, says exploratory talks have been held on a sim- ilar scries next year hut no agreements have hccn reached. Commenting on a report from. Montreal Monday that Cana- dian and Soviet hockey officials had already agreed on a more etalxirale series for next year, Eagleson said: "Discussions have been held. I've had some discussions rny- sclf with Soviet officials, but to my knowledge tiicre's been no agreements or decisions made, "There's been general dis- cussions all along but hoth sides have agreed that nothing definite would be done until after tbjs series is over." The Canadian team of Na- tional Hockey League stars re- groups here Tuesday before de- parting Tuesday night for Stockholm and exhibition games against the Swedes Sat- urday and Sunday. The remain- der of the Canada-Russia series is set for Moscow Sept. 22, 21, 26 and 28. Eagleson snid that before an- other series -noukl arranged, Canadian hockey officials svould first have to agree on what sort of [cam would go against the Russians, and clearance would have lo be given for player participation, N If L president Clarence Campbell said after Team Can- ada lost the first game to the Russians by a score of 7-3 in Montreal that ther.1: would never be another such encoun- ter involving a collection of NIIL stars. Campbell condemned the all- star team format because of the problems involved in get- ting clearance from NHL clubs for use of their players and be- cause the players needed more than their three-week training to become an organized unit. Campbell had said earlier he could see the possibility of single NIIL team playing a series against the Russians perhaps during the NHL sea son, because there would be little difficulty in adjusting th JS'IIL schedule to allow on team to be away for a week o two, Eagleson also confirmed Ilia Team Canada will play one ex hibilion game against dech oslovakia in Prague Sept. 30 He said there were "a couple o problems still to be ironed ou but it looks fairly definite fo the 30th." Pass Devils concerned The Lethbridge Sugar King' onflict has reached the Crows- esl Pass. Dick Koentges, a director of Pass lied Devils, in a tele- lone statement Monday said we licre in the Pass want it iade clear that Scotty Munro Calgary does not have ne red cent in our hockey lub." Koentges was referring to a emark made by Biff Beddin, 'ho was fired as coach of the ethbridge Sugar Kings of the Alberta Junior Hockey League Monday. Keddin has said Mun- ro had an interest in the Pass club, the newest entry in the Alberta League. "We have a gentleman's agreement with said Koentges "and that's all. The team is owned by Pass Hockey Ltd."
