Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - September 17, 1970, Lethbridge, Alberta Tliumlny, September 17, 1770 THE LETHBRIDGE HERALD 13 OUR TURN WILL COME While a few.of the horses which arrived for the 1970 Lethbridge Race Meet were out for a workout a number of the ponies were resting, anxiously awaiting the start of the nine-day meet which gets under way Friday afternoon. Post trrie tomorrow has been set for 2 p.m. Sweden Takes Duel Meet Canadians Outpointed By GLENMS ZILM EDMONTON (CP) Canada was outpointed by Sweden 201- 148 but Canadian athletes were far from outclassed in a two- day, dual-nation track and field meet which ended Wednesday. Canada's women's team de- feated the Swedish a come-frora-behind effort, 68-67. Wednesday was women's day, as the Canadian 'girls won five of the seven events. The women's team was still behind 60-64 going into the last event, the high jump, but Deb- bio Brill of Haney, B.C., won with a jump of five feet 8M> inches to pick up five points and Debbie Vankiekebelt of Oak- ville, Ont., was second and picked three points. Sweden got two points for third place and one for fourth in the international scoring system used for dual-nation events. C a n a d a's poorest showing came in long-distance running events. Lena SJostedt of Sweden broke the Canadian open record in winning the metres in RACE SELECTIONS By Willie Ketchum FRIDAY'S SELECTIONS FIRST RACE SSOO Claiming for three, four and five-year-old Maidens FIVE FURLONGS Nine Days Of Racing Scheduled For Whoop-Up Downs Fall Race Meet Start Set For Friday By PAT SULLIVAN Herald Snorts Writer Have you ever thought about breaking the bank in Las Ve- gas, or winning an Irish Sweep- stake When the thoughts of a quick fortune enter anyone's mind, one of the first things on the agenda is a trip to the race track and a crack at that quick fortune. Southern Alberta racing fans will get their chance for that fast bundle beginning Friday af- ternoon at two o'clock. The ponies will be back for another visit. Nine full days of racing is set for Whoop Up Downs with the opener Friday at two o'clock to set the stage for what local officials and those of the South- ern Alberta Racing Association hope will be one of the biggest and most successful meets in the 10-year history of the Fall Race Meet. Seven races will be staged each day with the exception of the two Saturdays, Wednesday and the final Monday when eight races will fill the bill. One of the keys to the sue cess of the meet will be the co- operation of the weatherman His on again off again co-oper ation in the past has createc some worries for officials bu this year, the anniversary year could prove to be the best wit good conditions. Last year, after a slow star Tonight Begins 67-Game Schedule Exhibition Puck Season Opens By THE CANADIAN PRESS Baseball and Football are stil doing their thing, but for hockey buffs tonight marks another of the 1970-71 National Hockey League exhibi tion season. And it's a prolonged series oi pre-season games leading up to the season opener with 67 eyeo- peners on tap before the 14 newcomers Buffalo Sabres and Vancouver into the regular schedule starting Oct. 10. Tonight the Sabres entertain New York Rangers at their Pe- terborough, Ont, training camp while Toronto Maple Leafs and St. Louis Blues clash at Ottawa. Tracy Pratt, 27-year-old son of Hockey Hall-of-Famer Babe Pratt, arrived in the Sabre camp Wednesday. The defence- man, picked in the draft from Pittsburgh Penguins, is still un- signed but his arrival indicated, to coach Punch Imlach, he "wants to play." Pratt balked at terms offered by Imlach and negotiating con- tinues. PLANTE FACES BLUES At Ottawa, goalie Jacques Plante will face his former St. Louis team-mates without the help of Leaf centre Dave Keon who is still negotiating his con- tract, and Brit Selby, Norm Ull- man and Ron Ellis, all sidelined with injuries. Two players who did reach agreement with Toronto general manager Jim Gregory were de- fenceman Jim Dorey and winger Paul Henderson. Rumors that defenceman Ted Green was his belligerent self were confirmed Wednesday when the Winnipeg native ad- mitted he and Boston Bruin team-mate Fred Stanfield had clashed earlier at their London, Ont., campsite. "It was Green of- fered when asked about the fray with Stanfield, "but the best thing was my helmet didn't come off." The helmet, a new trademar for the rugged rearguard afte a serious head injury sufferec in last year's pre-season schec ule kept him out of action for year, was especially made to f skintight without the aid of. strap. Philadelphia Flyers sent righ winger Gary Dornhoefer back t Philadelphia from their Quebec City camp to have his knee .ex amined. The four-year Flye veteran recently underwent sur gery to remove torn cartilege.

Tim Horton, the for- mer all-star defenceman trying to hold a job down with New York, voiced surprise when asked to comment on radio re- ports he was headed for Buf- falo. "All I can said Horton, "I have a contract and I know I'll be playing somewhere this winter. I mean, I'm under the impression I'll be in New York, but it's not like I'm 100 per cent sure." "This is the first I've heard of said Imlach in a telephone jiterview. He said there's no- thing to.the rumor, but later added: "I'm not saying we would never make such a deal. But there's no way we can af- 'ord Horton, anyway, not with the money he's getting." And the tragic story of 20- year-old Michel Briere contin- ues. Pittsburgh's outstanding rookie of last year, still in a coma in t Montreal hospital after four months following a car accident, underwent more :urgery Wednesday to relieve pressure on the brain. due to inclement weather, offi- cials realized through the pari mutucls with a high single day mark of on tlie final Saturday. The final burst of enthusiasm left Lang Chapman, general manager of the Southern Al- berta Racing Association, opti- mistic about this year. "We can have the best year ever next said Chapman at the conclusion of the 1969 edition, and he could be right. This year's meet carries with it a special significance it marks the end of the Southern Alberta Racing Association. "We'll let the Lethbridge Ex- tnbitipn Association take over now, which means they will have two race meets each year instead of just Chapman itated. The local association staged a six day meet during Whoop Up Days in July and t proved successful in its first venture. FEATURE RACES Chapman, Lucien Maynard and Lee Williams will be hon- ored during the race meet with featured race. Also included n the special feature races will je one in memory of Mrs. Mar- on Williams, the late wife of jresident Lee Williams of the southern circuit. Mrs. Williams died last year and will be remembered with :he Marion Williams Memorial Handicap, Saturday, Sept. 26. The race will be for three-year- olds and upward and will carry with it a purse of the "argest of the meet. Next Thursday will be the Lu- cien Maynard Farewell Handi- cap while next Friday Sept. 23, vill mark the Lee Williams 'arewell. The Lang Chapman farewell is slated for Monday, Sept. 28, the last day of racing. As has been the case in the last, each day will have a fea- ure race. Besides the four al- ready mentioned the first day eature will be the Lethbridge naugural Handicap. Saturday will see the running of the George Wolfe Memorial Handi- cap. The Medicine Hat Handi- ap goes Monday with the Mon- ana Marathon scheduled Tues- ay followed by the Fort Mac- eod Queen's Hotel Handicap on Wednesday.

She edged out the previous title- holder, Noreen Licpins of Van- couver, who set her mark of in Tokyo in 1909. In the gruelling men's metres, Peter Frcdriksson of Sweden lapped both Canadian competitors. In the metres, Swedish competitors took the top two spots Wednesday and in Tues- day's 5.000 metres and tlio steeplechase, tho top Swedish times were consid- erably better than the top Cana- dian times. One other Canadian open re- cord was broken Wednesday in the men's pole vault.

Eskimos Win Second The Eskimos are the only un- beaten club in the Lehtbridge Minor Football League after two we.eks of action. Eskimos, coached by Scott Whitelaw and Jim Valentine, registered their second straight win by downing the Stampeders of George and Danny Santoni 20-12. Stampeders are now 1-1. In the first game the Bomb- ers and Lions battled to a 6-6 draw. The clash Ross Wakelin scored a pair of majors for the winners and added two converts for 14-point outing. The other six points for the Esks came from a touch- down by Rick Collins. Stam- peders got major scores i'rom Cam Mclntosh and Dave Ham- ilton. The Lions, seeking their first win after an opening game loss, led 6-0 after a touchdown by Bob Firth early in the game. In the fourth quarter, however, Guy Pomohac grabbed a short toss and romped 75 yards for the lying touchdown. Neither club could coine up with a con- vert. Coaching the Lions this year are Rick Wyatt, Mel Minchaus and Brace Gullett. Handling the duties for the Bombers are Jim Zook, Doug Forster and Mark Boh. Next league action will be Wednesday when the Eskimos tangle with the Lions at 6.30 while the Stampeders meet the Bombers at Both games are at Henderson Park. LOVABLE! LIVABLE! MOVABLE!
