Midgets, Heavyweights Headline Wrestling Program S I D E L I h j» .· By DON TERBUS 1 F ·' ·· ^iH 1 ! n A NIGHT FOR SOMETHING . . . Ah, what a splendid evening it was for a track meet. A silvery crescent spotlighted Redwood Bowl. Smoke from garbage burning nearby mingled with the crisp arctic air and the effect was, to say the least, nauseating. Blue noses seemingly were transported by blue hoses that turned out to be the legs of track athletes not wearing sweat pants. About 50 onlookers huddled in topcoats or blankets or both sat lonesome and shivering in grandstands that can comfortably accommodate 5500. Or if you wish to believe some sources of information, 28,000. One fan is reported to have nipped at a thermos jug throughout the evening. Shortly before the relay was to start he challenged the entire Chico State team to a dual meet. Dr. Joe "Cowboy" Forbes puffed contentedly on his pipe until he noted that there are no lights at the starting point on the southeast corner of the track. "We'll have to get the state to remedy that situation," he declared as he bit an inch off the stem. Newly signed pro footballer Vester Flanagan was being towed along by a puppy about the size of Elizabeth Taylor's love for Eddie. Asked what breed it was, Vester replied, "He's part McNabb and the rest dawg." Head timer Herb Lorenz was absorbing some good natured ribbing from Graduate Manager H o w a r d Goodwin. The reason was a white cap that gave him the appearance of a Stutz Bearcat jockey. Herb in turn was needling the hurdle 'crew. "Take your. time fellas. .They just left the starting blocks." Meanwhile, the crew frantically placed the last flight of hurdles in position. Except for three competitors, a judge and sophomore athlete Danny Sousa who did a mighyt efficient job of replacing the crossbar and keeping the sawdust neatly piled, the high jumping area was as deserted as the carnival booth next to the girlie show. Bill Urichton made his jumps with little effort and then wore himself out replacing his sweat pants each time. All by himself at 6-4, he barely missed his third try at the height. Meanwhile, in the middle of the field, assistant coach Hank Cooper was accepting congratulations for ;he magnificent job he did as official balloon blower- upper. The multi-colored baubles are used to indicate distances for the javelin and discus events. One report stated that Hank "had the puckered ips to prove that he had expended all that effort." £inda' hard blowing up balloons or anything else for lhat matter with puckered lips. But Hank's cheeks were kinda' flabby. All in all t the meet must be labeled a success. Especially if you're from Chico. The Wildcats won it, 77-54, and threw in several complimentary remarks about the rubberized track in the process.

Edmonton Nears Playoff Crown By United* Press International Edmonton all but cinched the Northern Division playoff title in the Western Hockey League Monday night when it dumped Calgary, 5-2. That gave the Flyers a 3-1 series lead with the n e x t game Wednesday at Edmonton, and the seventh contest -- should it be necessary -- also at Edmonton. A sixth game would be at Calgary. It seems unlikely Calgary could win the needed t h r e e straight with two of the contests at Edmonton. Roger Dejorday and Lcn Lundc each blinked the red light twice or the winners Monday night, while Billy McNeil Mil the other Edmonton score. Jim Moro scored both of the osers' goals.
