The Rangets have lost 10 Stanley Cup games and 14 of their last 16. They trail Ihe Bruins whom Ihey meet again tonight and Suirday at New York's Madison Square Garden in the third and fourth games of their best-of-eeven East Division semi-final. The Rangers have vm only games In Stanley Cup play since 1967, when they were eliminated four games lo two by Chicago Black Hawks in 1968. In 1967 and 1969 they lost four straight each tjrr.e to Montreal Canaoiens arxl now are down 0-2 in their series vith Ihe Bruins. Three other KI1L teams, all trailing 0-2 in their best-of-seven quarter-finals, are at home hop- Ing the advantages of their rinks Mill halt their elimination from their respective series in games tonight and Sunday.

Sid Abel, Wings' coach, claimed referee Van Buffey was fooled when Mikita faked a fell and Bruce Mac- Gregor was called for tripping. The Black Hawks later scored with the man advantage. "Mikita toot a dive and he (Buffey) goes for it and we get a Abel said. MacGregor said he com- plained but Buffey ignored him saying "it was a trip.

"They'll be flying in Detroit." RECORD BAD The Penguins, who have not TOG a game in Oakland Arena this season, will be iiopajg to re- verse that situation loraght Pittsburgh, in the Stanley Cup for the first time in its three- year history, has had some hot goaltending from Les Binkley.

SULLY SATS I -By Pat Suttivanl C3 -J GOOD NEWS CAME out of Edmonton this week and should be of interest to young boys playing hockey in southern Alberta. Word reached this desk that the Molson's hockey scholarships will continue. For a time it was feared (he popular program would be dropped, but according lo a news bulletin out of Edmonton, the program will enter its fifth year. E. S. Neils, vice-presdent of Molson's Edmonton Brewery, made the announcement, stating that the pro- gram had become such an outstanding success it would be continued. While making the announcement he also slated that George Harvey of Edmonton has been named as the Alberta Arnaluer Hockey Association representa- tive on the Board of Trustees. He joins Mr. Neils, Ed Zemrau, athletic director of the University of Alberta, and Dennis Kadatz, who holds" the same position at the University of Calgary. The awards were established for the purpose of providing Alberta student-athletes who are of good character, who qualify academically, and who have demonstrated hockey ability, wilh the opportunity to further their education and hockey careers at a university in Alberta. The scholarship awards cover the first year's tuition fees, and application forms may be obtained from Molson's Edmonton Brewery or from any mem- of Ihe Board of Trustees. For more information write P.O. Box 337 Edmonton. The Lethbridge Recreation Hockey League wrap- ped up another successful season recently wilh the annual banquet and presentation of awards for out- standing individual efforts. This year the league operated with five clubs and hopes are high for a six-team operation next season. A tip of the hat to those individuals honored by being selected to the all-star teams and the various individual performances and a special lip of the hat to Emil Frilzler. He was the recipient of the league's award for dedicated service. That comes for his many hours at the rink and his lirelss work on the executive. BITING THE DUST Jockey Dave Dennis left the gale but his hone didn't. He wci thrown from his mount at the starting gale in the third race Friday at Greenwood race track in Toronto. H'n horse, Mountain Rhyme, fell in the gate but was removed without damage. "BILL" BAKER SURE KNOWS APPLIANCES Just Like Our ERNIE KNOWS MOTORS Call Us Today! ACCORDING to the pamphlet, the Gas City Hockey School has now become one of the largest operations in North. America and who's lo disagree? Gregg Pilling, founder and director of the school dropped the brochure off the other day and for the life of me I can't find fault in the statement. Also with Pilling, a former American Hockey League player with Buffalo Bisons, no less than six other professional hockey players will be on hand for the school which opens August 17 and runs through lo the 29 at the Brooks Arena. The school is open to any boy between the ages of eight and 17. Headlining the list of instructors will be Earl Ingarfield of Uie Oakland Seals. Ingarfield was an instructor last year when the initial campaign was a complete success slory. Also back from last year are Ed Joyal of Ihe Los Angeles Kings and Al Hamilto of New York Rangers. This lime around Pilling has acquired the services of Seth Martin, formerly with the St. Louis Blues, Jim Neilson of Ihe Rangers, Gamcl Bailey of the Boston Bruins and Wayne jMuloin of Oakland. The course outline sees each boy receiving 10 hours of ice-time per week, plus a game on the sixth day lo complete his session. Extra evening sessions will be conducted for the goallenders. Also a fully supervised physical education program will be con- ducted each day. Last year Pilling and his group lost their head- quarters when fire destroyed the rink in Medicine Hal and almost lost Ihe ice due to warm weather. All obstacles were overcome, however, and the 1970 school promises to be bigger and better.
