Hoop meeting this Thursday The Lethbridge Men's Bas- ketball League will be holdin its second meeting of the year this Thursday evening. The meeting, is set for Hoom 3 of the Civc Centre at Last year's executive urge, everyone interested in takin part in the league this year ti please attend this importan meeting. ty-lwo drivers have been as- sured of places but four reserve entries will have to qualify for the remaining spots. Assured of a place Is Scots- man Jackie Stewart, who wrapped up the world champi- onship Aug. i after five victo- ries in his British Tyrrell-Ford. Also assured of places are the ]3 drivers behind Stewart in world standings who have s mathematical chance of becom- ing runner-up as result of the Canadian event and the United States Grand Prix at Watkins Glen, N.Y. Oct. 3. HAS BIG LEAD Going into next Sunday's race, the Scotsman has 51 I points are awarded on a 9-6-4-3-2-1 basis [or the fir't six places in each race. Far 'hind him is Bonnie Peterson of Sweden whose March-Ford helped him amass 23 points. In third place is Jacky Iclot of Belgium, winner of the last two Canadian events, with 19 points. Emerson Fittipaldi of Brazil in a British Lotas-Ford and Frenchman Francois Cevert in Tyrrell-Ford are tied for fourth place with 16 points each. As American racing driver Mario Andretli put it Monday, motor racing now is BO competi- tive that eight or 10 drivers will qualify within seven-tenths sec- onds of each other. So the con- test over the hilly, twisting Mos- port circuit could be between the V-B and IB-cylinder- power plants. The year 1971 was to have been the year of the 12 but Stewart, with a British-tuned Ford V-8 at his back, left the pack behind in five races. Ferrari, which this year sports an unique flat 12, won in two GPs. BHM of Britain, with V-12s, also won two, 17 HAVE V-8S In Sunday's race, 17 cars will 36 V-8 powered while there will je nine 12-cylinder machines, Jiree Ferraris, four BRMs and two French Matra-Simcas. As Andretti said at his Mon- day news conference, the Fer- rari engine is "very strong at 500 Is a lot of horsepower for a three-litre engine." The Federation Internationale d'Automobile, world molorsport authority, limits the Formula I engine to three little more than half the size of the motor in the average family car. Three former world champi- ons are entered in Sunday's race. Graham Hill of Britain, who won it in and 1968, will drive a Brabham with a Ford V-8. New Zealander Denis Hulme, 1967 titlist, will drive a Ford-powered McLaren. Briton John Surlees, 1964 champ, will drive a Ford-powered car of his own design.

Beliveau still plays vital role MONTREAL, (CP) Jean Beliveau, former star centre and now vice-president of pub- lic relations and corporate af- fairs for Montreal Canadians, put his uniform on again dur- ing [he weekend, but it was only for a portrait artist. Beliveau admits he t going to miss playing. He an- nounced his retirement June 9 after 18 years in the league. "Theie's no doubt I miss it because this is the first lime in 22 years that I'm not at the training he said in an interview Monday. However, when he looks at the lineup coach Scottv Bow- man has inherited from last season's Stanley Cup Champi- ons, he is confident the Cana- dicns will do well. "LOOK GOOD" "They look like a pretty goad group and Uie club ap- pears in good shape for a few years to come. As loug as a couple of rookies give us de- cent production nnd if Guy Lafleur clicks at centre the team shouldn't have too many problems." Beliveau, whose touch grey at Hie lemples and read- ing glasses give away his age of 40, is happy that Sam Pol. lock, Canadians' general man- ager, has brought him into discussions on possible trades and salary negotiations.

Here, Philadelphia Flyers' goalie Bruce Gamble loses his off- day where the Flyers are holding their training camp. Actually the offence is fumbling more Defences only appear to have improved TORONTO (CP) After watching Canadian Football League games during the first half of the 1871 season, the im- pression one often gels is that defensive squads are playing a more prominent role than ever before. Two Labor Day weekend games in the Eastern Confer- ence are examples. Toronto Ar- gonauts visited Hamilton Tiger- Cats that weekend and Montreal Alouettes faced the Rough Ri- ders in Ottawa. While the Argos displayed some offence, it was the Ticats who won 30-17, mainly by virtue of their defence wlu'ch inter- cepted fcur Toronto passes. At Ottawa, the Riders had al- most no offensive power but their defence, picking up six Montreal fumbles and three In- tercepted passes, provided the home fans with a 40-17 victory over the Als. However, the CFL statistics released this week, compared with those at the same time last year, give no indication of im- proved defensive play. The offensive squads of the nine CFL teams show a tend- ency this year to fumble more often. They dropped 113 fumbles this year and lost 78 of them, compared with 78 fumbles and 65 lost et the same point last year. But in interceptions, today's quarterbacks appear to have improved. There have been 129 interceptions in the 1971 season compared with 139 picked off by the same date in 1970. The reduced interception sta- tistics are even more remarka- ble in view of the fact that this year's quarterbacks have at- tempted a total of passes compared with by the same time last year. Ordinarily, the more passes thrown, the more interceptions are likely to occur, as in the case of Argonauls rookie quart- erback Joe Theismann and Montreal's Sonny Wade. Theismann leads the Eastern Earl Lunsford, now general Conference in passing yardage manager of Winnipeg Blue with from 66 completions Bombers, set thai mark in 1961 out of 128 attempts.
