Friday the 13th is sure to be an unlucky day for either the LCI Rams or the Catholic Central Cougars. The Rams and the Cougars open the Southern Alberta High School Football season at Henderson Stadium tonight at eight and one of the teams is sure to be blaming the 13th for their bad luck. The Rams and Cougars aren't alone with their 13th blues, however, as the season also gets under way in the league's east division with Medicine Hat High taking on another 'Hat team, Crescent Heights, in the Gas City. The Rams are the defending league champions while the Cougars finished in the unfamiliar position of coming in last in the three-team, west division last year. Coach Jim Whitelaw of the Rams feels his club is strong enough to repeat again this year as league champions. Cougar coach Dean Dahl won't come out and say he'll finish on top of the pack this year, but his team have every confidence in themselves and say the Rams will have trouble keeping the Cougars from displac- ing them. Winston Churchill Bulldogs will swing into action Saturday night as they host Medicine Hat McCoy at Henderson at eight. Bulldogs finished second last year and the potent passing attack of the Bulldogs makes them top contenders for this year's title. The overall league has strengthened with word from Medicine Hat being that McCoy High will be the team to beat in the east. This year the league will be operating under some new.rules, including a two- point convert option. It will be interesting to see what the team who scores first decides to do, go for the conventional one-point convert or attempt the two-point pass or run play. Another rule, aimed at preventing un-. necessary roughness, is that the ball will be whistled dead as soon as any part of the ball carriers body touches the turf. All games in Lethbridge will be played under the lights at Henderson Stadium Friday and Saturday nights throughout the year. The Lethbridge teams will play against each other twice during the season and meet the Medicine Hat teams once for a total of seven games for the season. This year all three Lethbridge teams have a definite shot at their division title and the league crown so the football should be dandy. Harris bails out B.C. Lions after early, costly miscues TORONTO (CP) British Columbia Lions made all their mistakes early Thursday night and then rallied while Toronto Argonauts saved their worst efforts until the last. The result was a 26-24 win for the Lions with running back Lou Harris providing two fourth-quarter touchdowns. The Argos took advantage of the Lions early, intercepting two Don Moorhead passes and turning them into a touchdown by Doyle Orange and a field goal by Zenon Andrusyshyn. Toronto continued to domi- nate and had a 24-12 lead after Andrusyshyn's third field goal of the game early in the fourth quarter. But then the B.C. of- fence came alive and their de- fence rallied to stifle the Argo attack.

Joe Moss, Argos acting head coach, was disappointed with the poor effort his club show- ed late in the game. "I fully expected them to go out and win that said Moss, who directed the club in its second defeat since head coach John Rauch was fired last week. guys are going to bitch because we're going to do a lot more classroom teaching and try to eliminate things before going on the field." The Lions" defence set up the late rally by stalling the Argo offence at a time when it needed to keep its drive alive and run out the clock. The B.C. defenders threw halfback Ed Shuttlesworth and then quarterback Mike Rae for a total loss of 26 yards and Toronto had to give up the ball, setting the stage for Harris's heroics. The Lion halfback first com- bined with Moorhead on a 59- yard pass-and-run play and then ran 17 yards for his se- cond touchdown with 2Vz minutes remaining in the game. Slade Willis got the other Lions on an 11-yard pass from Moorhead in the second quarter. Ivan MacMillan converted all three touchdowns and kicked a field goal and two singles. Shuttlesworth got Argos" other touchdown on a one-yard in the third quarter and Andrusyshyn provided two converts and a single besides his three field goals.

Team Canada impressive in final game with juniors Next come the Russians for eight EDMONTON (CP) A 8-0 victory over the Western Can- ada Hockey League All-Stars Thursday night signalled the end of the beginning for Team Canada 74 which opens an eight-game struggle with the Soviet Union Tuesday in Quebec City. A capacity crowd of gave Team Canada its' warmest reception of a five- game Prairie tour in which the World Hockey Association players won four and lost one game against their speedy junior rivals. The last minute was played amid solid applause. The team hopes to better the record of four wins, three losses and a tie achieved by Team Canada 72 against the Russians. Coach Billy Harris said the team is where it should be in preparing for the series. "Our conditioning is good and our timing has continued to he said. "We have some things yet to work out, but we will manage to concentrate on them before we leave Saturday for Quebec City." Johnny McKenzie scored three goals and linemates Andre Lacroix and Mark Howe picked up three assists in a brilliant display of puck control. Howe also scored a goal, his first of the series. Other Team Canada goals were collected by Frank Ma- hovlich, Tom Webster, Paul Shmyr and Marc Tardif. The first period Mahovlich beat junior goaltender Larry Hendrick, after taking a pass from Gordie Howe, and McKenzie scored two in a row. Team Canada also scored four goals in the second period before cruising through the third. McKenzie had no ready ex- planation for his consistent play during training camp which began Sept. 1. "Everything is going well. I just hope the bubble doesn't burst." Team Canada goaltender Don McLeod had to block only 23 shots while junior goaltender Larry Hendrick turned aside 38. Meanwhile, Harris announc- ed that defenceman Pat Price will take part in the Russian series. Price, one of several WHA rookies used to bolster the junior team, signed with Van- couver Blazers after last season although he had one year of eligibility remaining with Saskatoon Blades of the WCHL. Previously named to the 27- member team were defencemen Rick Ley, J. C. Tremblay, Brad Selwood, Al Hamilton, Marty Howe, Pat Stapleton, Rick Smith and Shmyr. Partners Hamilton and ANDY CAPP Howe were chosen to sit out Thursday's game. Howe has a sore ankle. Goaltenders are Gerry Cheevers, McLeod arid Gilles Gratton. Forwards are Gordie and Mark Howe, Ralph Backstrom, Lacroix, Mahovlich, Jim Harrison, Bobby Hull, Mike Walton, Paul Henderson, Bruce Mac- Gregor McKenzie, Serg Ber- nier, Rejean Houle, Tardif and Webster. Harris did not announce the starting 20 for the opening game. see WHAT I'M UP f Ttl I t AGAINST? I'LL NEVER BE ETOUEAVeW-SW JUST 0065 TO PIECES I TVOUGHTlT WAS TOO GOOD TO BETWUE-' 1974 Daily Mirror Newspapers Ltd ndy Disk Publishers-Hall Girls win first bout in Little League battle WASHINGTON (AP) A House sub-committee recom- mended unanimously Thurs- day that Congress amend the charter of Little League baseball to guarantee girls full rights of participation. The amendment, sponsored by Rep. Martha Griffiths, D- Mich., is little more than a formality aimed at making the 1964 federal charter com- patible with new rules already adopted by the organization. Rep. Don Edwards, D- Calif.. chairman of the Civil Rights sub-committee which made the recommendation, said approval by the full judiciary committee was like- ly within a week, with a House vote about two weeks later. The sub-committee's recommendation followed the testimony of P. J. McGovern, president and chairman of the Little League. McGovern fully endorsed the change. McGovern noted that while the original charter referred solely to boys, litigation by women's groups and others in more than 20 states the last two years had prompted the league's trustees and ex- ecutive board to approve rules changes earlier this summer to admit girls. He assured the panel that all branches have been "advised to honor the change in good faith and without prejudice." Edwards said he was "somewhat bothered" by the fact that the Little League meanwhile had established a separate softball program for girls in some cities, a move which McGovern said was designed to accommodate those who weren't good enough to make the hardball feams. "It's an obvious signal light to steer the girls there (to softball) in the first said Edwards. McGovern denied that was the intent, in- sisting "it was created in good faith." Rep. Robert McClory, R- 111., complained that the soft- ball program wasn't open to boys in some posing a reverse issue of dis- crimination. McGovern acknowledged it was a thorny question, but said it was feared that boys might monopolize the softball program if it were open to them, depriving girls of the chance to play. Edwards and McClory stressed, however, that the re- vised charter clearly would permit no discrimination on either side. They indicated the panel's report to Congress would make specific mention of the softball program, so there would be no misunder- standing that it. too. should be opened to all. NHL looks at changes to speed up the game MONTREAL (CP) The National Hockey League plans to implement two proposed rule innovations designed to speed up play during most of its 75-game exhibition schedule which begins Sept. 19. The NHL announced Thurs- day that one proposal limits player changes to any time when play is in progress or when there is stoppage in play following a goal or an assess- ment of a penalty. Changes could be .made when penalties create an inequality of playing strength on the ice. The other proposed -rule creates a free shot for the non- offending team whenever a stoppage in play is created by a goaltender holding the puck for more than three seconds. A Ircc shot would be awarded i) a goaHender deliberately dropped the? puck on the goal mesh or should any player hold, freeze or play the puck along the board in such a manner as to cause a stop- page. tinJess he is actually be- ing checked by an opponent. The reieree would place the puck on the centre spot of the lacc-ofi circle on the side on which the infraction occurred. Any player on the non- offending team who was on the ire at ihe time of the inirartion would be allowed to take the free shot but he would position with his sticjt touching the edge of the face- off spot. All other players must be onside and only the player tak- ing the free shot is allowed in- side the face-off circle. The goaltender must remain in his net and when the referee blows his whistle, the player taking a free shot must shoot in the direction of the net. Play then continues in a nor- mal manner. For violation of the free- shot or the shooter not taking a proper lace-off attacking team forfeits Uae shot and the Murphy not happy PINEHURST, N.C. Bob Murphy wasn't complete- ly happy with the first-round <55 that staked him to the lead in the World open golf tournament. 'This was a round that could have Murphy said Thursday after his six- under-par on the No. 2 course at the Pinehurst Country Club. 'It was a good round. It could have been a real one." resulting face-off is in the neutral zone. If the defending team violates the rule, the shot is repeated. If a violation occurs again, the shot is repeated and a minor penalty is assessed against the player who com- mits the second violation before the second shot is taken. If a goal is scored on the second shot, the penalty is nullified. The two rules will be in effect in exhibition games in which NHL teams are involv- ed until Oct. 1. Following the experimental time period, a vote will be taken of the NHL governors and if one or both rales are ap- proved, they will become effective with the start of the 1974-75 NHL schedule. Exhibition play will begin next Thursday with Toronto Maple Leafs and California Golden Seals meeting in King- ston. Ont.. while Pittsburgh Penguins lake on New York Islanders in Brantford, Ont. New York Rangers meet Boston Bruins Oct. 7 in the final exhibition game before regular-season play begins Oct. 9. The NHL has not released a final schedule of exhibition clashes between NHL and World Hockey Association teams. However, they should be available some time next weHk L ELRICH TIRE SPORT SCORES NATIONAL LEAGUE East W L Pet.
