Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - April 19, 1972, Lethbridge, Alberta Canada's best to meet Russians official, and no pros barred 'PRAGUE (CP) The en- counter the hockey world has been wailing open tour- nament between Canada and Russia with in) pros set for this fall, The tourniiincnl encom- pass eight in Can- ada anil four in could be extended lo include Swedish and leams. Tlic news came as a joint an- nouncement Tuesday by Joe Kryczka o[ Calgary, president of the Canadian Amateur Hockey Association, and Andrei Slarovoilov, head of the Soviet delegation to the world amateur hockey tournament here. The first four games will be played in Monlreal, Toronto, Winnipeg and Vancouver Sept. 1-3; the others in Moscow, Sept. 22-2-I-2U-28. Doth sides emphasize that the tournament will not herald Can- ada's return lo world amateur competition which she aban- doned nearly 2Vi years ago, That is still subject to negotia- tion at the International Ice Hockey Federation congress level. lint Clarence Campbell, presi- dent of the National Hockey League, said in a report from Chicago: Canada has won if-s point."

Expansion and the World Hockey Association have con- verted professional shinny into a player's market with Iho sky tiic limit as far as salaries are concerned. Skating iii the National Hockey League nowadays is a marvelous life. Teams travel in luxurious jets; camp at first- class hotels; are deified by the media and work only a cou- ple of hours a day, a few days a week and only seven inonlhs of a year. That's just about enough (o inflate a players head to dirigible proportions, which it has.

Fans, paying up lo ?B for a seal, responded with assorted Bronx cheers, which the Rangers fully deserved. But instead of accepting and acknowledging the fact thai his team smellcd out the joint, Neiv York's g.m.-coach EmUe Francis did what he docs best of all, alibied for his team and criticized the people who indirectly are paying his the fans. ''It was n damn said Francis, referring lo the croud's disapproval, as if it's against the law to boo the liome learn. "There's no reason for people to give our goalie, Gilles Villemure, the raspberry like lhat." Shame? reason? Just whom docs Francis lliink he's kidding, or ordering around? Tn begin with, there's nothing shameful about spectators booing a loam which is playing Grade D (for deplorable) hockey. To end wilh, there's every reason to boo Villemure if, as happened on lhat night, be appeared lo be giving a 25 per cent effort. The players themselves denounced Iheir own fans. "That stuff makes you said All-Star deferiseman Brad Park. "What do they think wo did, deliberately go out there and lose? Maybe we spoiled some of (he fans." No, Brad. Maybe the fans, Ihc six-figure salaries and Iba "WHA have spoiled the players who have developed into pscudo-Ifoly-nicsscd-Be-Hs. A little more booing might just put them back in their proper perspective; they're working stiffs like you and me! SI.

Nevertheless, several owners still arc furious with Campbell over the "secret" memo he wrote last year spelling out the NIIL's numerous mistakes and weak- nasses, which eventually landed on the pages of the Montreal Slar.
