Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - September 14, 1972, Lethbridge, Alberta Thursday, SepKmber 14, 1972 THE LETHMIDOI HEXALD XI Islanders open camp with most players strangers Even Goyette is not sure who is who ALTHOUGH there has been major migration of waterfowl, small flocks of ducks are constantly on the move throughout the south country. This has been mostly young birds motivated by the, exhilaration of flight. For this is the time of the year when the young among ducks and the young shooters create an excitement all of their own. Adult drakes of the pintail and the blue-winged teal are among the first to go. Some of the ducks have already reached the Louisiana gulf coast and the pintails are moving up into California. A cold front that crossed the prairies during early September reduced temperatures from 100 above for daytime highs to below zero at night. THE VANGUARD of the white-fronted geese have arrived in the Central parts of the province, but they are now back in the Arctic for moulting. But, for all practical purposes, the production of waterfowl is complete. Production has been good, es- pecially in the well watered parklands. The fall flight should compare favorably with last year. Ducks Unlimited representatives from Alberta re- port conditions throughout the province are good. There have been a considerable number of pro- tection permits for crop protection. WHY THE PRAIRIE RATTLER has invaded the south country is hard to say. The rattler was once reported throughout the prairies. They are now re- ported from the Texas panhandle, and north, and through to the Pacific coast. This deadly reptile belongs to the family of the pit viper. Their unique characteristic is their ability to camouflage. They are commonly three to five feet long. The noise making device of the prairie rattler structure is formed of horny interlocking segments, which are formed as a button only among the young. Contrary to popular belief, the rings on a rattler do not tell the age. Reproduction is during late summer and birth is given to several young. A main food of the rattler is the prairie dog and burrowing owl. Mice and gophers are also among pre- ferred foods. The young snakes are eight to eleven inches long and live on a diet of insects. The fangs of the reptile are definitely poisonous and used primarily in the procurment of food. Soon as the weather cools the rattler will seek protection under a rock or in a cave. Some caves contained as many as several hundred rattlers. The rattler is not a popular creature and is us- ually killed on sight. Even though his bite can cause severe discomfort to humans, the development of an- tivenom serum has saved many lives. While it goes without saying that rattlers should be left to themselves, rattlesnake meat is considered a rare delicacy. By GERALD ESKENAZI New York Times Service PETERBOROUGH, Out. Kitty nine strangers have gathered here c, the shores ot Lake Kawartha, 90 miles northeast of Toronto, lor. the Impossible task ol molding a National Hockey League team in less :han a month. They are known as the New York Islanders, but not even Lheir coach, Phil Goyette, recognizes most of have trouble remembering all their he admits over a creme de menthe. So the Islanders, who started the serious work of training camp Tuesday, have numbers fastened to their backs with safety piiis, just as marathon runners do. "I think I know about half a dozen guys says Denis Dejordy, a goalie. This is an expansion team, born out of the N.H.L.'s haste to come up with another entry to soften the impact of the new rival league, the World Hockey Association. The team consists of high-level and bush league pros and a score of amateurs. "Maybe we can be like the said Dejorcly. "If the fans can take to us like they did with the Mets, that would be something." Because the number of hopefuls is low, and with eight players already having defected to the W.H.A., the Islanders now on physical fitness to insure the presence of enough "bodies" for scrimmages. Under the direction of Nick Garen, the trainer, the players do calisthenics on tlie infield of the Kawartha Downs harness training track. Garen's program is based partly on his experience as a long-time trainer for the Chicago Black Hawks and partly on the advice ol the television physical-fitness man. A driver was jogging his pacer at nine 'clock Tuesday morning and didn't like the way the- horse acted when it passed the leaping, grunting Islanders. "Hey, move those guys to the center of the shouted the driver. Goyette works four shifts a day two in the morning, two alter lunch. He is tired. Normally the coach works the regulars twice a day. But there are no regulars here. One thing impresses obterv-ers: everyone on the Ice hustles. The players have trouble putting the puck Into the net, even on tliree-man line rushes with only the goalie to beat. But the team was not chosen for its scoring. It is big, strong, young defensively oriented, and that is what the general' manager, Bill Torrey, thinks is the only hope for an expansion team.

QUINELLA: FALL SALES SPECIALS pREBCO By THE ASSOCIATED PRESS Boston Hed Sox ascended to first place in the American League East Division race a week ago and have been a steadying influence since. Steadying, that is, if you con- sider the No. 2 spot. Since tire Red Sox gained first place Sept. 7, the runner-up position has" been occupied by three con- tenders Detroit Tigers, New York Yankees and Baltimore Orioles. They continued to shuffle the standings Wednesday night when the Red Sox drubbed New York 7-2. The Hcd Sox, who had a half- game lead Tuesday, now hold a one-game advantage over the Tigers, who teat the Orioles 6-5 Wednesday night. The Orioles and Yankees are tied for third, Hz games back. Oakland Athletics remained the team to watch In the West, beating Minnesota Twins to grab a three-game lead over Chicago White Sox who lost 6-4 to Kansas City Royals. Milwaukee Brewers trimmed Cleveland Indians 3-1 and Cali- fornia Angels nipped Texas Rangers 6-5 in the other games. RAKE YANK'S LEFTY Boston, held hitless through four innings by Hob Gardner broke open the game with four-run fifth inning that sent the Yankee lefthander to an early shower. After the Yankees chaset Boston starter Lynn McGlothen on Fe'ipe Alou's two-run double in the seventh, the Red Sox came up with three more runs in the eighth off reliever Ron Klimkowski. Detroit rallied for five runs off Dave McNally in the lift inning, three on a homer b; Frank Howard and one on balk by reliever Doyle Alexan der, to overcome a four-ru deficit and beat Baltimore. "This is the first time tha Howard has really ripped th ball since he's been sal Detroit manager Billy Martin whose team acquired the gar in a recent deal wil Texas. "He was like the otlter on this Howard has liad 13 careei home runs off McNaliy, but sisted that he doesn't hit Mm that well. "If I had to make a livln hitting off said Howar "I'm afraid that my kids woul starve." It is September in the Na tional League and with the div sion races all but clinched, th has become the silly season fi the also-rans. Philadelphia Phillies an New York Mets put on quite show Wednesday night. The Phillies came out on th short end of an 11-6 game th lasted three hours, 35 the longest nine innings baseball this season. The game featured 11 pile ers, 17 walks, 26 men left c base, two wild pitches, passed ball ar.d two errors. B none of that was as funny 16 frantic contact lens search aged by rookie catcher Bob oone of the Phillies. Boone started pawing the ound around home plate in e seven inning after losing his ens. He was joined by plate Screw-on Sway Controller EAZ-LIFT SWAY CONTROLLER LEG-A-MATIC FOLDING CHAIRS 15 GALLON (Plastic) WATER TANK umpire Doug Harvey, other players and coaches. The fruitless search lasted four minutes, 10 seconds before the umpires ordered play re- sumed. Elsewhere, division leaders Cincinnati Reds and Pittsburgh Pirates continued to win. The Reds scored an 8-8 victory over Atlanta Braves in 10 innings and the Pirates beat Chicago Cubs 6-4. Houston Astros edged San Diego Padres 6-5, St. Louis lahovlich on the limp Orr may play Saturday STOCKHOLM (CP) Team anada, a team of National ockey League stars en route i Moscow for the second half their eight-game con- ontation with Russia, arrived 'ednesday night with Bobby rr, but without superstar rank Mahovlich. Coach Harry Sinden told a ews conference that Orr, just leared from a knee operation, ill work out with the team to- ay and rnay get into the two- ame series with the Swedish ational team here Saturday and Sunday. "We expect Orr to start light crimmaging with the team tarting Sinden aid. "There's an outside hance he may start here." Team Canada needs all the ireaks it can get, which is the nain reason for the two games ere prior to the second hah! of he series against Russia. In he first half, Team Canada won one, tied one and lost two. "We're determind to regain iome of the prestige "We've ost and to gain the edge in this Sinden said. BIG M1 STAYS HOME Mahovlich, the 'Big M" o! Montreal Canadians, was lef behind with allergy problems and a knee ailment. He may re- ioin the team before the Mos cow series. "We welcome the opportunit; :o play here and to work out on .he larger ice Sinden said. Facilities here are excellen and should help in our condl tioning." The NHL players, skated of their feet by the fleet Russian in Canada, face the added prob lem of ice rinks in Mosco' much larger than those i North America. The average North America rink is 200 feet by 65 feet. I Europe, the length Is approx mately the same, but the swif skating European teams have an extra 15 feet of in which to total about 300 square feet mor skating room. In addition, the area beliin Ihe goals is about three fee deeper in Europe. OFFERS NO ALIBIS Sinden, who made no excuse, for his team's performance i was some of th best hockey ever seen" said "We'd like to see our ov> game come alive. "I'd like to see us play the ay we can play. The big ad-1 ustment we must make must e in conditioning. That was ie biggest shortcoming we ad." Alan Eagteson, listed in wedish information sheets as headleader tor Team Can- said they were not taking he Swedish club lightly. "On the basis of the bad in- ormation under which we oper- ted with the Russians, we on't trust anyone e said. "The Russians are good lockey players. This is as good a hockey unit as I've ever seen. have never seen anyone, ither than Orr, as fast Kharlamov. He's the inly guy I'd mention in the ;ame breath as Orr. If he's as consistent as he appeared to be n the two games I saw him >lay, the sky's Hie limit on an say mil- ion for a five-year contract." Sinden gave the traditionally Swedish press lone ammunition when he tried to be diplomatic con- cerning a question about Ulf Sterner, Swedish superstar. Would Sterner be good enough to play with Team Can- ada at this was the question. 'T played against Sterner several years Sinden said. "I haven't seen him play for several years now, but I don't hink Sterner could makg this team as now constituted." He did say that Juha Widing former Swedish player now playing In the NHL would have been given serious eonsidera tion. One rule expected to give th Canadians trouble on the large ice surface is the offside regu lation. In the NHL, a defencema head-man the puck up but not centre line. If the receiver doesn' trap it before it crosses the re< line, it's offside. Ordinals nipped Ivfontreal xpos in 11 innings and San Yancisco Giants whipped Los Uigeles Dodgers 7-1. The Phillies-Mets comedy best characterized by a ases-loaded fly ball to Phillie -entre fielder Willie Montanez the fourth Inning. Montanez ettled under the ball, then ropped it. All three runners cored. The Mels picked up M our by Ken nine valks from seven Phillie pitch- New York used four pitch- ers who surrendered eight walks. The Phillies left 15 men on base and the Mets stranded 11. It all ended mercifully after nine long innings. Except for Boone. He never did find his contact lens. Pinch hitler Jorge Roque cracked an nth-inning homer to give St. Louis its victory over Montreal. It was the first major league homer for tha rookie, who was batting .083 be- fore he connected.
