Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - September 12, 1974, Lethbridge, Alberta Thursday, September LETHBRIDGE Several questions remain regarding Team Canada '74 EDMONTON (CP) Team Canada '74 ends its five-game exhibition series here tonight, giving coach Billy Harris a kst chance to evaluate the World Hockey Association players who will take part in an eight-game series with the Soviet national team. An impressive performance Tuesday at Saskatoon, where Team Canada beat the Western Canada Hockey League All-Stars 6-1, lifted some of the pressure on Harris, but several questions remain. Despite .encouraging medical reports on Bobby Hull, the knee he injured Sun- day in Calgary has not been tested in a game. "I'm as concerned about having him as a leader as I am about having him it's obvious how much we need him just as a said Harris. "He is so keen about this series that it rubs off on everybody." During the eight periods he played before his injury, Hull was the dominant figure almost every time he stepped on the ice. Hull will start against the Russians in the opening game Tuesday night at Quebec City. Even without Hull, Team Canada played its best game Tuesday night.

The spearhead was Gordie Howe, 46, who scored three goals. He also used his elbows without regard for the facial features of his young op- ponents. Overshadowed by Hull and Howe so far, but excellent nevertheless, have been forwards Ralph Backstrom, Johnny McKenzie, Andre Lacroix and Rejean Houle, and defencemen J. C. Tremblay, Pat Stapleton and Paul Shmyr. Harris had expressed concern about some of his forwards. Part of this concern disappeared when Mike Walton scored two goals at. Saskatoon in his best perfor- mance since camp opened Sept. 1. Bronze medal awarded, only 50 years late OSLO (AFP) Anders Haugen, 86- year-old Norwegian- born American, will be awarded an Olympic bronze medal here in ceremonies today for his third place finish a special ski jump at the 1924 Winter Olympics in Chamonix, France. Haugen jumped for the United States in the first Winter Olympics Games. A miscalculation in the scoring tabulation at that time placed Haugen fourth, giving the third-place medal to Norwegian ace Thorleif Haug. The scoring error was discovered only a month ago when Jakob Vaage, a veteran Norwegian ski writer and referee at the 1924 Games, was leafing through old new- spaper clippings and results of the Games in preparation for the 50th anniversary celebra- tions to be staged in Oslo. He found that Haug had inadvertently been credited with 213.7 penalty points for the event instead of 216.7. Haugen had been penalized 215.5 points, qualifying him for the bronze medal which he will be awarded here 50 years later. Mark Howe, the hard- shooting son of the hard- shooting father, has not found his stride and Paul Hender- son, who suffered a slight shoulder injury at Saskatoon, and Tom Webster have been productive but unspectacu- lar. Frank Mahovlich, hampered in the early stages of camp by severe hay fever, said Wednesday he feels better than a week ago and much stronger than at a com- parable stage of workouts with Team Canada '72, which edged the Russians in the first summit meeting of the world's top hockey powers. Houle and linemates Marc Tardif and Serge Bernier have worked hard in preparation for the series. Tardif and Houle have said that the as The French it is representing French Canada. Jim Harrison, recovering from back surgery, has not played well. Defenceman Rick Smith has improved steadily, Harris says. The others, Rick Ley, Al Hamilton, Marty Howe and Brad Selwood, have been overshadowed on occasion by WHA rookie Pat Price who has been playing defence with the juniors. Harris has said a meeting of team officials, probably Friday, will decide whether Price and rookie WHA centre Dennis Sobchuk will stay with the pros. Ron Chipperfield and Mike Rogers, two other fledgling pros being used as rein- forcements for the juniors, have played well in spots. In goal? "Gerry Cheever is No. said Harris. "Don McLeod, right now, is No. 2. Gilles Gratton will be No. 3." Parlez vous Francais? Parlez vous Francais? Well, if you do speak French the Canada Winter Games could use your help. Nick Patson, Chairman of the bilingual committee for the 1975 Jeux Canada Winter Games, is currently looking for volunteer help to serve on his committee. Any bilingual person in Southern Alberta is urged to attend a meeting slated for the LCI Lecture Theatre room Sept. 16 at Attendez s'il vous plait! Browns drop Leroy Kelly, rosters shaved even more ASSOCIATED PRESS The 26 strike-plagued Na- tional Football League teams, reduced to their final 47- player rosters, have dropped another dozen or so veterans in late moves to make room for rookies and free agents. The flurry of transactions Wednesday capped last- minute roster shuffling of about 200 players and left a handful of lingering veterans out in the cold on the verge of the 1974 season. Washington, wheeling and dealing under coach George Allen, waived three well- known veterans: Roosevelt Taylor, Myron Pottios and Walter Rock. The Redskins also cut Joe Sweet. Alien, however, recalled veterans Deacon Jones, John Wilbur and Ray Schoenke after temporarily placing all three of them on waivers. Among other veterans dropped were Earl McCullouch and Jim O'Brien of Detroit Lions. John Moor- ing of Miami Dolphins.
