Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - September 14, 1973, Lethbridge, Alberta THE LETHBRIDGE HERALD Friday, September 14, 1973 15 Joe Balla A 'no hen pheasant' season in southern Alberta this fall is not consistent with a sound game bird management policy. Probably the worst of all is that the 'no shooting hens' philosophy will deprive many hunters of recreation and bonus meat for the table. Ever since the Alberta fish and wildlife branch opened a limited season on female pheasants several years ago, there has been a sizeable outcry from the population about an alleged wrong-doing. This outcry concerning the female of the species has come despite the fact that females have always been included for the bag limits with grouse, partridge, ducks and geese. During the past several years biologists have been unable to find anything that would tend to indicate that shooting of the female of the species in pheasants was wrong, or had any significant effect on populations. Surveys continually snowed, however, that a majority of the hunting fraternity and the landowners were against this management practice. And ironically, many of the hunters who complained about the season on hens, often shot females to round out a daily or possession limit. So, because the shooting of females created an outcry among a majority of the hunters and landowners, the fish and wildlife branch yielded and closed the season. Morley Barrett, supervising wildlife biologist at Lethbridge, says: "the hunters and the landowners are the ones affected the most. From a biological standpoint it really doesn't make that much difference. "Pheasants aren't like deer. With big game animals over- populations can make a range imbalance. If the practice of shooting hen pheasants is so unpopular, why should we attempt to force hunters to do Biologists are agreed that weather conditions are the key determining factor with the birds at hatching time in the spring. With big game hunting in the west country, that's what much of it has been so far hunting. Daytime high temperatures have often been around the 70 to 80 above mark. Of the few animals that have been taken. shooters have had to move fast to keep meat from spoiling. There is an abundance of lush growth among the deciduous plants in the forest country. Animals can be nearby and remain well hidden. Elk are just starting to bugle and it's possible to bring one down from treeline if you happen to be an expert and don't make too many foreign noises. Some game herds are at the bottom of valleys, but these are resident animals for the most part and know how to stay out of sight of humans. This, however, doesn't mean that hunters should head for the hills in shirtsleeves. The calendar says it's time for a strong blast or two of winter before Indian Summer rolls around. In other words, you may head into the mountains dressed for summer, but make sure Long John is close at hand. Wharram will coach CHICAGO (API Kenny .Wharram. former Chicago Black Hawk hockey star, has been named head coach of Chicago Nordics of the Midwest Junior Hockey League, the Nordics announc- ed Thursday. Wharram. 40. played for the Black Hawks during the 1960s and was among the National Hockey League's top 10 scorers during three seasons. His best season was 1963-64 when he scored 39 goals and 32 assists. A heart ailment which almost took his life in 1969 forced Wharram to end his playing career. Midwest Junior Hockey League has six teams for players 20 years of age and un- der and is sanctioned by the Amateur Hockey Association of the United States and the U.S. Olympic Committee. SHOOTERS SCOREBOARD ...PLAINSMAN SPORTS A large contingent of Lethbridge shooters attended the Medicine Hat Rifle and Revolver Club Annual Shoot last weekend. The Medi- cine Hat Club deserves commendation for staging one of the best or- ganized and interesting shoots held in Southern Alberta this year. Although the host Club has some shooters who are fast becoming competitive shots the more experienced Lethbridge shooters won most events under the perfect shooting conditions. The final event of the day turned out to be a real finale'. Evelyn Leffingwell from Lethbridge. Helen Ardnl I from Taber and Sherida Hobbs from Lethbridge tied with perfect scores. On the first shoot off Sherida Hobbs succumbed to the pressure and lost a point, but the second, third and fourth shoot-off targets were possibles for Evelyn Leffingwell and Helen Ardnt. However the shoot could not continue forever and as darkness fell Helen Ardnt finally lost the sight picture m her 20x scope and placed a shot m the nine. Bob Hobbs Junior fired a group measuring .276 centre to centre at 200 yards to win the Bench Rest event. This group is smaller than the official Canadian Rpcord.

We are pleased to report another 50 straight broken at the Leth- bridge Fish and Game range. Bob Vair shot a Diawa Shadow on the first round, a Remington 1100 on the second to put the possibles back to back. Bob is noted for spending most of his time instructing newer shooters on this excellent sport which duplicates field shoot- ing almost exactly.

BEST BET: FRONT DESK 7th RACE LONG SHOT: CARBON COUNTY 1st RACE Riggs thinks King faking Blaneas takes lead in classic HILTON HEAD ISLAND. S.C. (AP) Homero Blaneas parlayed a fantastic putting round into a five-under-par 66 and the lead Thursday in the rain-delayed first round of the 'Heritage golf tour- nament. Blaneas needed only 23 strokes on the greens as he came within a single shot of the course record on the demanding 6.655-yard course. Blaneas. winner of the Mon- santo Open at Pensacola earlier this year, held a one- stroke advantage over tour sophomore John Mahaffey and Jimmy Wiechers. who were tied at 67. Wiechers now has played his last 73 holes of competitive golf without making a bogey. Bert Yancey was alone at 68. South African Gary Player, a winner in the Southern Open last weekend, had a 69 and was tied with 21- y ear-old rookie Ben Crenshaw. Jerry Heard. Hale Irwin. Cesaro Sanudo and Bob Wynn. Arnold Palmer managed a 70 and Johnny Miller, the de- fending titleholder here and the current U.S. Open cham- pion, was at 72. Lanny Wadkins withdrew after only a few holes. Jack Nicklaus. Tom Weiskopf. Lee Trevino and Australian Bruce Crampton are not competing. Thunderstorms forced two delays and one group of three f golfers was stranded by dark- ness with one hole to play and was to finish this morning. Won't intrude with Aaron's bid Mrs. Ruth fed up NEW YORK (AP) Mrs. Babe Ruth said Thursday she is "sick and tired" of ail the commotion raised by Hank Aaron's bid to break her late husband's home run record. "I don't care whether he does or whether he just want some peace of mind." the widow of the Babe said bitterly. "For a year now the pressure on me has been _ tremendous. I'm fed up with it." The frail, little woman spoke by telephone from her apartment on Riverside Drive, where she lives among the relics and memorabilia of the Golden Twenties when Ruth was the idolized home run king. She said she had no in- tention of trying to be on hand when Aaron strikes the blow that destroys Ruth's career record of 714 home runs, a mark baseball men once predicted was unreachable. Aaron is only four away from tying. WON'T INTRUDE "I don't know how that re- port got she said. "I never said it. 1 never in- tended it. I don't think it's good tayte for me to intrude. It takes something away from the dignity of what Mr. Aaron is attempting to do. "Besides, it has been a dreadful ordeal for me. I have made seven trips in behalf of the Babe Ruth League and everywhere I go there are the same old questions and answers. I am constantly be- ing besieged for interviews and public appearances. "I was supposed to join Mr. Aaron in opening a new su- permarket in Atlanta. I agreed. Then I heard no more about it. So 1 have decided to stay 'in background. I've had enough." Mrs. Ruth said she felt that loo much was being made over Aaron's home run pace. HAPPENS EVERY DAY "Baseball records are bro- ken almost every day." she said. "As Waite Hoyt was quoted as saying, there was no groat fanfare when the Babo hit his 700th." She repeated that no mailer how many home runs Aaron, or anyone else hits, it cannot dull ihe lustre of the great Babe. "There is onlv one Babe." she insisted. "There always will be only one Babe. "Charles Lindbergh was the first man to fly the Atlantic in a plane. Who remembers who was the second man? There have been thousands, millions to do it since. But who cares? The Babe's name will live forever."

Running back John Riggins ended his lengthy holdout with New York Jets and is ex- pected to play in Monday night's game against Green Bav. HOLIDAY HOUSTON (AP) Bobby Riggs said Thursday that Billie Jean King's illness was a ploy to get his sympathy for winner take all tennis match next week in the Astrodome. "She's trying to get sym- pathy from the public and from' me because she realizes this is the most important match of her life." Riggs said prior to a speaking en- gagement. Mrs. King withdrew from the United States Open tour- nament at Forest Hills and earlier this week underwent blood tests which doctors said revealed she may have hypnglycemia. a blood sugar disorder that is the opposite of diabetes. "If she does have hypogly- cemia. that's not a serious dis- ease." Riggs said. "I've got it myself. I'm sure a lot of people are walking around today with it and don't even know it." Riggs wasn't accusing Mrs. King of faking an illness at the U.S. Open. "I'm sure she was under the weather at Forest Hills." Riggs said. "It was hot and muggy and the humidity got to her. But I expect her to be in top physical condition when she plays me in the Astrodome. "It's air conditioned and there won't be any humidity problem. "She's trying to psych me out but it won't work. I'm un- psychable. Killebrew could be traded BLOOMINGTON, Minn. (AP) Minnesota Twins President Calvin Griffith, who long counted Harmon Killebrew among his un- touchables, has hinted that the aging slugger may be traded. The 37-year-old Killebrew missed much of this season because of an injury. Killebrew was used as the Twins' designated hitter, a spot held all season by three- tiine American League batting champion Tony Oliva, who is recovering from knee surgery a year ago.
