Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - September 26, 1973, Lethbridge, Alberta Willie Mays bids farewell to fans NEW YORK (AP) A choked-up Willie Mays bade farewell to baseball after be- ing lavished with costly gifts Tuesday night and said, "In my heart, I am a sad man." "Just to hear you cheer like this for me and not to be able to do anything about it makes me a very sad he said "This is my farewell. You don't know what is going on in- side of me tonight." The 42-year-old all-time star announced his retirement trom the game less than a Canucks hot, defeat Habs THE CANADIAN PRESS Vancouver Canucks, after three somewhat dismal seasons in the National Hockey League, may have found that winning touch. The Canucks held off Mon- treal Canadiens 5-4 Tuesday night in an exhibition game before at the Pacific Coliseum, their first win over the defending Stanley Cup champions since joining the league in 1970. In other exhibition games. New York Islanders hamjnered Minnesota North Stars 5-1. Buffalo Sabres came from behind for a 2-2 tie with Atlanta Flames at Ottawa and Philadelphia Flyers registered a 9-2 score at home over Richmond Robins of the American League. Vancouver's Andre Boudnas scored with just nine seconds remaining in the game for the margin of vic- tory, stalling the Canadiens who entered the final period with a two-goal deficit. Bobby Lalonde. Don Lever, Jerry Korab and rookie Paulin Bordeleau also counted for the Canucks. The Canadiens got goals from Guy Lapointe, Yvon Cournoyer, Dave Gardner and Bob Gainey. At Unionville, N.Y., goalie Gerry Desjardms had to make only 21 saves off the North Stars who were playing their third game in as many nights. Dave Hudson and Brian Spen- cer sent the New Yorkers into an early lead. After Fred Stanfield, ob- tained in an off-season trade from Boston Bruins, narrowed the margin, the Islanders put it away with a third-period barrage that produced goals from Ed Westfall, Bob Nystrom and Ralph Stewart. Richard Martin and Don Luce gave the Sabres their momentum at Ottawa in the last three minutes of the game. Randy Manery and John Stewart scored for the Flames who remain unbeaten in four exhibition starts, including two victories. At the Spectrum, Rick MacLeish. a 50-goal scorer last season, scored twice against the Robins to even the Flyers' preseason record at 1- 1 Lethbrldge MINOR HOCKEY REGISTRATIONS ADAMS ICE CENTRE One Week Only!

Honored by old team-mates, former rivals, prominent dignitaries ot sports and government, and a sellout crowd of more than in Shea Stadium, the boyish, enthusiastic' superstar from the cornfields of Alabama could not restrain his emotion. Once he turned toward the bench of the New York Mets, embroiled in a fight for the National League East pennant and said, in a quivering voice: "Forgive me. I know it is as hard on you as it is on me." THANKS OFFICIALS He apologized for delaying the game with Montreal Ex- pos and thanked Mets officials for enduring him despite a .211 batting average "That proves I was loved all over the he said. He told the gathering that his greatest desire now that he is out of baseball is to work with youngsters. "Now that I have all I need." he added, "I can teach other kids to be as great an athlete as I am If I see someone that has this talent. I will help them." The all-time great acted like a kid opening packages at Christmas. Some packages. Three cars, two of them lav- ish limousines, a trip around the world, another trip to Mexico; a table full of golf clubs: a typewriter: plaques and citations from baseball and political chiefs; minks and diamond watches for his wile, and even a doctorate degree trom Miles College in Alabama Joe DiMaggio, former Yankee great, sat in the Mets dugout and recalled lasting memories of Mays. "I remember the 1951 World Series, especially." Joe said "It was the second or third game, I think Willie hit the ball that changed Mickey Mantle's career. "Mickey, in right field, went for the ball and stepped in a hole on an old piece ot drain pipe It tore up all the ligaments in Mickey's leg I remember I caught the ball DiMaggio was reminded that he always had been Mays's hero, the player Willie admired most and after whose style he patterned his own. "1 am llattered, naturally." DiMaggio said. "I am es- pecially flattered because he went on to do such marvellous things Wednesday, September 26, 1973 LETHBRIDQE HERALD Gordie Howe scores once A sad man Willie Mays wipes his eyes during farewell ceremonies Tuesday at Shea Sta- dium.

Cougars officials said Monday Pronovost was fired follow- ing a last-place finish last season and replaced with former Black Hawk delenceman Pat Stapleton. NEW YORK (AP) The question had been asked from the moment Gordie Howe de- cided to end a two-year retire- ment and sign a contract with the World Hockey Association Houston Aeros: "Can the old man still perform as he did in the National Hockey It took Howe exactly 21 sec- onds to provide an answer. Taking a pass from his 18- year-old son, Mark, the 46- year-old Hov rifled his first shot past New England Wnalers goaltender Bill Berglund Tuesday night and scored the only goal in Houston's 1-0 victory over the Whalers in the third period of an unusual hockey exhibition. The Aeros, Whalers, Win- nipeg Jets and New York Golden Blades played one 15- minute period against each other at Madison Square Garden beiore a crowd of 7.092 But it was not the spectacle of the four-team event, or even the appearance of Win- nipeg's Golden Jet. Bobby Hull, that touched the crowd as did the comeback perfor- mance of the greatest goal scorer in the sport's history. Apparently Unaffected by the long layoff since his retire- ment from the NHL Detroit Red Wings in 1971, Howe skated smoothly, handled the puck easily, and did what he does best, score. "It's lots of fun to be back in the game." he said after his goal had won the mini-game for Houston. "I'd like to keep going the way I played." The way he played was only s'ightly slower than the style that amassed 786 regular sea- son goals and countless scor- ing records with the Red Wings "He showed me something. I'll tell said Hull, who did a fair share of scoring himself in a long career with the NHL Chicago Black Hawks. "And those kids are really going to be something." Hull added, speaking of Howe's sons Mark and Marty. The trio made sport history Tuesday night, becoming the first known father-son group ever to compete together in a ma- jor league event "Mark's got a lot of Hull said, "and Marty, with a little experience, is going to be a super defenceman In Observance of the JEWISH NEW YEAR Our Store will be CLOSED All Day Thursday, Sept. 27th and Friday, Sept. 28th We will be open for business as usual on Saturday, Sept. 29th LEO SINGERS Men's and Boy's Wear 214 5th Street Phone 327-3958 fan fan Fall stwmgs Black Decker 49.88 Rope Edge Tarpaulins 8'xlO' 12.Q8 10Px14' 21.88 Black Decker Drill 33.88 TL Co-op Super-Latex Interior 7.88 Co-op Super-Latex Interior Satin 9.88 Co-op Acrylic Latex Exterior House Paint 8.44 Co-op Self-Cleaning White Exterior House Paint gal. 8.44 303 Lee Enfield Sporter Rifle 27.88 Pram Oil Filters.
