Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - September 25, 1970, Lethbridge, Alberta SCORING PUNCH George McCrea, back for his second season with the Lethbridge Sugar Kings, is ex- peeled to proyide a good portion of the scoring punch when the Kings meet Mount Royal Cougars tonight at the Arena at in an exhibition game.

The hockey scene will be a busy one in southern Alberta in the next few days as three ex- hibition games are planned for the next four days. Tonight the Sugar Kings will meet Mount Royal Cougars in an Alberta Junior Hockey League exhibition encounter at the Arena at Cougars are new entry in the six-team Alberta league. They replaced the Calgary Cowboys. Sugar King coach John Chap- man is eager to see his charges under fire and is expected to use everyone in an effort to test them all in the game. Kings will get another test Monday evening when they play host to the Calgary Cen- tennials of the western Canada Hockey League at 8'30. Kings have a working agree- emtn with the Centennials and Chapman would like nothing better than to hand the parent club a setback.

The move came after Ticats lost their punter, quarterback Joe Zuger, early in a 25-14 vic- tory Wednesday night over Brit- ish Columbia Lions. McKay, drafted by the Ticats last year, attended their pre- season training camp and spelled Zuger to several games while averaging nearly 45 yards a kick. McKay's signing drew the wrath of Varsity coach Ron Murphy on the eve of the inter- collegiate football season. Mur- phy called the actions "of the Hamilton coach staff. highly unethical." "They didn't even contact me and get permission to make him an offer." McKay, still eligible for col- ne Gree Leading With 65 COLUMBUS, Ga. (AP) Bert Greene says his fervor for hunting and fishing equals his desire to play golf, but that his major goal is to win a tourna- ment on the Professional Golf- ers' Association tour. He may get all three during the Green Island open golf tournament which started Thursday with the Georgia na- tive carrying out a fiye-under- par 65 to take a one-stroke lead into today's second round of the 72-hole event. Hairy Toscano ran into trou- ble on his finaj hole and went over par, finishing one shot back at 66 in a tie with Austral- ian Bob Stanton. Making his job easier was the withdrawal earlier in the day of George Knudsoa The Toronto pro was listed as one of the fa- vorites after his victory in the Robinson (HI.) Open last week- end. Four other Canadians, how- ever, are among the 144 pros who teed off Thursday. Ben Kern of Oakville, Ont., shot a 71, Wayne VoUmer of Vancou- ver a 73, Witt Homenuik of Winnipeg a 75 and Gary Bower- man of Toronto a 76. lege ball, accepted the balance- of-season contract offered by the Ticats Thursday. He leaves today to join Hamilton at Ed- monton for their Saturday night game against the Eskimos. Murphy said he couldn't blame McKay. "They should never have put him in the position to have to decide. But they sure put pres- sure on 44 other players on our team. "I've always co-operated with the pros hi the said Mur- phy, "but no more." Mara Heads Fund Program TORONTO (CP) George E. Mara of Toronto, president of Maple Leaf Gardens and co- captain of Canada's gold-medal winning hockey team in the 1948 Olympic Games, has been named to head a development and fund-raising program for the Canadian Olympic Associa- tion. He will head a six-man group to be raise funds and "foster support for sport at all levels and be- come a permanent arm of the COA." Harold E. Wright of Vancou- ver, president of the COA, said Thursday, following a COA ex- ecutive meeting, the group will be called the Olympic Trust of Canada and1 will operate with plans reaching to 1976 when the Olympic Games will be held in Montreal. At the same time, Wright an- nounced a special coaching de- velopment program and a series of Young Canada Achievement awards with details to be an- nounced later. "In addition, the COA will provide greatly expanded serv- ices for Canada's athletes at the 1971 Pan-American Game Wright said, "as well as better support for the 1972 Olympic winter Games in Sapporo Japan and the summer Games in Munich, Germany." WILL IMPROVE SERVICES He added: "We will have a more complete range of medical and ancilh'ary services. We will be able to improve our adminis- tration and information serv- ices. Our athletes will have bet- ter equipment, and better pre- embarkation arrangements." The second step was "to fos- ter increased support for each individual sports group." 'The COA will use its best offices to enlist interest in and aid to the sports associations, not only to the sports groups which make up the COA but all sports groups in Canada." Wright said the COA intends to enlist the aid of "the Cana- d i a n Intercollegiate Athletic Union and its 50 member uni- versities across Canada." The awards program will sup- plement and extend the Fitness Awards project announced re- cently by Health Minister John Munro.
