Longhorns, who replaced the faltering Lethbridge Sugar Kings in the six-team Alberta loop, will get their first taste of home action next Tuesday evening when they meet the same Red Devils at Henderson Ice Centre at eight o'clock. Coach Stan Maxwell and assistant Don Mclean, are putting the local charges through vigorous sessions each night at Henderson. "We'll be ready for Sun- day." said Maxwell. There is plenty of spirit in the club. To a first-year player the work is hard but the handful of veterans from last year's club know this was one thing that was lacking last year. The club went through three coaches and things real- ly never did get straightened around. Times, they say, are changing. Maxwell, along with co- owners Herb Christie. Gprd Hoselton, Tony Pomohac and Harry Cox. have all made it clear that the Longhorns will be entertaining. No promises of miracles are being spread around. However, the Longhorns do not have much of an act to follow. Nine players thus far have come to terms with the locals. The first three to ink pacts were Brent Cleland. Rop WeiHand and Kent Lowry. Six more agreed to play un- der Longhorn colors Tuesday, while McLean made it certain he would be Maxwell's assis- tant for the coming year.

McLean, like Maxwell, is an excellent coach. In the 1968-69 season McLean took the Sugar Kings to the semi-finals of the western Canada junior final series before bowing out to Regina Pats in six games. That year the Kings won the Alberta Junior League crown and then upended Victoria Cougars in a six game Alberta-BC final. For reasons that were never made very clear. McLean was relieved of his duties with the Kings the following year. This marked the beginning of the end for the Kings and now McLean is back to give local Kefs' camp opens TORONTO (CP) A fit official exemplifies a compe- tent official in the eyes of Ian (Scotty) Morrison, referee-in- chief of the National Hockey League. "Be fit and you'll be con- fident. Be confident and you'll be a top Morrison said Tuesday as he watched 65 officials go through their paces at the league's ninth an- nual training camp which ends today. Included in the group are pro officials, a sprinkling of rookies and some of Europe's top amateur referees pre- paring for a forthcoming in- vasion of Russian teams to North America. Morrison, 42, who has held his job for nine years, has an obsession for fitness providing the key to confidence in his officials. "It's impossible to be a pro- fessional referee if you're not in shape." He said the life of an of- ficial, referees and linesmen alike, is demanding. They cope with fatigue of travel, customs clearances, waiting for baggage, flight delays, cancellations and moving through time zones. "Often officials work three and four days a week and most weekends. If the official is a family man, he must have the support of his family all the said Morrison, adding: "I know. I've got eight children myself." nothing runs Royals JOHN DEERE like 3 Deere McKay Bros. Farm Implements Ltd. 3214-5 Ave. N. Lethbridge, Alia. Phone 327-2043 K D Implements Ltd. Rancher's Supply Ltd.

Ange'lo Mauro led the locals with a four-goal performance while .John Stropnik added two and Alec Dudas and Bill Calderwood one apiece. The easy win gave the Royals the third division title with an astounding 18-2 record for the .season. hockey fans the benefit of his talents working with young hockey players. Kirkke. at 18 years of age and a native of Lethbridge, played last year with Tilburg Trappers in Holland. The slick right winger also played with the Dutch National team that finished second in the World C class championships. Renner played with the Kings last year at right wing. What the fiery young Taber product lacks in size he more than makes up for in hustle. Renner is just 17. Also 17 is Bernie Syrenne up from last year's Alberta champion Midget Elks. Syrenne plays left wing. Two of Maxwell's players from the Native Sons last year signed Tuesday. Cox and Joevennazo. Cox. a defenceman, attend- ed the Medicine Hat Tiger training camp but was sent back to the Alberta league for seasoning. Cox is just 16 years of age. Joevennazo. an 18 year old centre, is looking in mid- season shape in workouts at present. A smooth puck handler Joevennazo has the size to be a good one in the not too distant future. Kmmelkamp is a backstop. The 18-year old net-minder played last season with Taber Palace Pats in the Junior B ranks. If he can play as well for Maxwell as he did against him last year Maxwell is bound to be happy. Meanwhile Jerry Bancks scored three goals Tuesday to lead Calgary Canucks to a 6-4 victory over Red Deer Rustlers in an Alberta League exhibition game before 525 fans. David Scott, Mike Mclvor and Mendel Vysholid scored the other Calgary goals as Canucks held period leads of 2-1 and 5-1. Rod Pimm scored twice for Red Deer, one on a penalty shot. Other Rustlers goals went to Wilf Foord and Doug Gillespie. Sports meetings planned Many of the winter sports are not quite ready to get un- der way as yet but a number of, local organizations have taken the initiative to plan ahead. For instance. the Lethbridge and District Broomball Association will stage an important meeting at the Civic Sports Centre tonight. The meeting will in- volved only two represen- talives from each of the ex- isting clubs along with two members from any new team wishing to join the 1973 season. Meanwhile two more meetings will be held Monday in the field of basketball and curling. The City's Men's Basketball League will hold its first ses- sion of the year at p.m. in Room oi' the Civic Sports Centre while the senior members of the Lethbridge Curling Club have planned their annual meeting for seven o'clock at the Curling Club. All curlers 65 years and over ;ire welcome to attend. RON KRIKKE Herald- BRENT CLELAND Sports World Cup at stake By REUTER The 1974 World Cup bursts back into the soccer spotlight today with six qualifying matches which should provide some of the answers to linger- ing doubts about the 16-team lineup for next year's finals in West Germany. So far only Uruguay, winners in 1930 and 1950. have won through from the qualify- ing competition to join hosts West Germany and holders Brazil, who both qualify automatically. Five matches are in the Eu- ropean qualifying groups while the remaining game brings together the Soviet Union and Chile in the play-off first leg between the winners of European Group and South American group 3. Intense interest will centre on the giant Slaski Stadium in Katowice where 120.000 fans will gather to see whether Olympic champion Poland can beat Wales and take the lead in group 5. But Wales, which has not reached the finals since 1958. could deliver a double knockout to Poland and to England, the remaining team in the three-nation group. If Wales wins 1-0. England will have to beat Poland by four goals in the final group match in London next month to snatch a place in the finals. Scotland and Czecho- slovakia, two of the niost talented yet un- predictable soccer nations, meet in Glasgow in a match which could decide the out- come of group 8. Another key game is the Group 4 clash in Leipzig be- tween East Germany and Ro- mania. Although Romania is one point ahead. East Ger- many has a superior goal average and victory would almost certainly put them through to the finals for the first time. Group 6 favorite. Bulgaria, which has won all three matches to date, should make virtually certain of reaching the finals when it plays Northern Ireland, playing this match at Sheffield. England, because of the unrest in Belfast. In Group 2 Switzerland, which has scored only one goal in three matches, should beat Luxembourg, but cannot hold out much hope of overhauling Italy, awaiting the home tie against the Swiss next month.
