The east had heavily St. to vrin the ooener and to taie ihe series. but Saturday Bight's game has completely changed the picture. Monarchs took a 3-1 lead In the second period, and in the final 20 minutes, St. Michael's threw their vaunted power into the attack but in spite of steady pressure, they could do no bet- ter than score one goal against the 'Pesgers, and that one goal couldn't win the game. Winnipeg came up with a s'iff defence and their over-all speed and shifty plays gave the Toronto crowd an sjefui. The game appar- ently pleased the 13.000-off fans ttho saw it and Ma ole Leaf Gar- dens should be sold out for the balance of ihe series. At least three of the city's fast- ball clubs were out practicing Sun- day. Safewavs girls looked smart IE a drill at the barracks grounds, and later in the day.

Here's hockey yarn: Nine years ego Charlie McManus TTHS aDpomt- ed hockey coach at the "Nauck. Mass., high school. Charlie had never seen 'a hockey match, let alone play in one, buc rather than admit his Ignorance and lose the job, he bought a hockey book and diligently studied the game, It urasnt until his team was ready to play thac someone sapped Mc- Manus off. that he was using an out-dated book and that; modem hockey is played six men, not the seven Charlie basing his on. ilcilanus stuck to the job, however, and this year retired. Clande Passeau is 37 but the vet- eran Chicago Cub pitcher serv- ed up a one-hit shutout against De- troit !n last year's >rorld series has no thought of retiring. He figures he's good for anotner fire years in the big time. He bought a farm ten rears ago in Mississippi and plan- ned to renre in 1341. Now 1946 rolls around and Claude says he feels better than lie did when, he bought the farm. TOROXTO. April (C-P.)

Winnipeg had a food chance taking the second same of the Memorial cop hoc- key finals tonight, and going on to win the best-of-scren series although the road would be bumpy. j Monson, of course, should feeli thai He coached the western Canada champions to a 3-2 upset victory over the S-5 favorites, Tor- onto Si. Michael's college, before some fans of cavmed loyalty at Maple Lea' Gardens Saturday night, Anti Walter, a former ama- teur hockey star of note, was more I nervous than anyone. COLLEGIANS FAVORITES "I was nervous before, after and during the game because this Michael's is a great club and liable to break out at any Mon- soa said. "But my kics appeared to lose their nervousness afrer the first couple of roinuUs. With the first game under our belt and it's as. important one we stand a pretty good chance." Coach Joe Pruneau of the Saints, in his quiet way, also predicted vic- St. Michael's of course and, surprisingly perhaps, the Tor- onto collegians remained slight favorites to defend successfully the Canadian junior title they won las: season in smashing Moose Jay Canucks. "I honestly think: we can take said Gentleman Joe. form- er Toronto Maple Leaf "kid centre. "Bsii the series may go the limit." Perhans Joe has something up his but in the opener Mon- archs held most of the cards. Thev showed a slight edge right down the line, were the biggest junior team to show here this season and their backchecking and speed were euperb. They won because they stopped most "of the Toronto plajs almost before they started, knew one another's moves, and because their polish around the nets shone line a goal-judge's light. Swept off their feet by a deter- mined Toronto drive in the first minute or so. Monarchs rallied for a 2-0 lead in the first period, lee 2-1 at the end of the second. They took a 3-1 lead early in the third and limited the Saints to one more goal after that. TAYLOR SCORES Centre Harry Taylor shot the first taliy after nearly seven min- utes and assisted on the second goal by a great left winger, Don McRse, eight minutes later. George Robert- son, a fierce bacfccnecker, scored the other on a rush with McRae and Taylor, both destined for Tor- onto Manle Leaf delivery nest sea- son- Eddie Sandford tioped a rebound over the sprawling frame of big Jack Gibson in the western nets for the first Toronto goal after 16-year-old Fleming Mackell cai> ried the pack the length of the ice. Checked to a standstill through- out most of the bruising but clean match, Tod Sloan, Ontario Hockey Association scoring king, shos the other St. Michael's goal on a pass from Leo Costello. The game was the first time Mc- Eae and bespectacled Clint Al- bright, starting centre, had been on skates in more than a week. They arrived In Toronto last Tues- day. two days before the team, under an arrangement whereby they are writing university en- gineering examinations at Univer- sity of Toronto. Until arrange- ments were znace, it was feared tney would be forced to write the papers at Wiaxuaeg and would be unable to plav in the 28th annual renewal of the finals. Albright, although not figuring in the scoring, was a standout. He never stopped speeding, except when he took one of his numerous sprawls, and his playmaking and backcnecSing were outstanding.

Steve O'Neill of Detroit, Joe Cron- in, Boston; "Dssie Blueee, Washing- ton, Joe McCarthy, New York, Lou Boudreau. Sewell. SD. Cleveland, and Louis, declared Luxe. they fully expect to see their teams m the thick of the pennant fight. None of the sextet ventured to name his team as the No. 1 outSt. but neither did they yield an inch to the other clubs. Perhaps the most enthusiastic statements were made by O'Neill of the champion Tigers and Sewell of the 1941 pen- nans worming Browns. "As defending champions ire cer- tainly must rate as the team to beat in the American league." said. "We have good pitching, good catching, a. strong outfield and the infield be okay. We expect the greatest competition from New York, Boston and Cleveland, Washington as the dark horse." Said Sewsll: "Oar club this year is 40 per cent better than our '44 champions and is the best team i have had since I took charge in 1941. I'm satisfied the Browns will be in the battle for the pennant."
