ART WILLIAMS TRAVEL CENTRE VILLAGE MALL PHONE 328-3201 Herald' Sports Juckes foresees 1975 return of Canada to amateur scene OTTAWA (CP) It took more than five years of nego- tiating, but Canada is likely to return to World Cup hockey by late some profes- sional players. "It looks like we got what we wanted." said Gordon AMOY CAPP Juckes, executive director of the Canadian Amateur Hockey Association Juckes returned Monday with Doug Fisher, columnist and former MP, and Lou Lefaive, president designate of the federal administration for sports and recreation, from meetings in Helsinki, Finland, with international hockey officials.

"I came out of a good spring training and now I just want to stay in the said Yastrzemski, who also stole his second base of the season. As prior to the 1967 season, when he hit .326 with 44 homers and had 121 RBI, Yaz worked out last winter in a nearby country club under the direction of physical therapist Gene Berde. He reported to training camp in Florida in excellent shape. Yastrzemski, whose single scored a run in the first inning, hit a solo homer over the Boston bullpen into the bleachers in right centre for his homer in the sixth. Then, in the eighth, he lined a shot into straight-away centre for another homer. "I'm only a growing said Cesar Cedeno after hitting a pair of homers to back Claude Osteen's seven- hit shutout pitching. "I've got some power now and I'm going to get some more. Free lessons in tennis The Lethbridge Tennis Club will hold one final registration night Wednesday. It is imperative that all tennis buffs wishing to take free lessons register between the hours of 6 p.m. to 9 p.m. at the clubhouse. In years past the response for free lessons has been tremendous and due to the large turnout, the lessons co- ordinator has restricted the number of registrations. It, therefore, becomes a first come, first serve basis. This year the LTC has planned a more personalized instruction program along with more available times for lessons. the historic September 1972, series between Team Canada and the Soviet Union, attempted to win in- ternational approval for using professional players on Can- ada's national team. "The majority of the Eu- ropean countries, if not them all, are in favor of an open competition as long as it doesn't hurt the amateur status of amateur said Juckes. Canada's proposal for an open world hockey competition has been, until now, hindered by Olympic rules that disqualify amateur players from Olympics competition if they play with or against professional players. But, explains Juckes, the Olympic committee has allowed so-called professional soccer players to participate in World Cup play without hurting the amateur status of other players involved. The professional players must be registered with the international bodies involved. Up until now, the International Ice Hockey Federation has said it would not allow teams competing in international hockey to draw players from professional ranks. Juckes said that this type of thinking seems to have turned around with other countries involved, especially the Communist bloc, wanting an open competition. "The proposal still has to be voted on. That will happen next summer, so the earliest Canada could return to international hockey is the 1975-76 said Juckes. Olympic rules would remain the same. Professional players would not be able to participate on national teams for Olympic competition. The only change would be that amateur players would retain untainted amateur status while playing with pro- fessionals in World Cup hockey action. Juckes also said details of the proposed World Hockey Association series against the Soviet Union will be announced early next week. He said the Russians were anxious to play either a WHA or a National Hockey League team. But the NHL didn't ap- pear to be in a position to bar- gain for a series next season while the WHA did. Juckes also said that the possibility of a junior world exhibition tournament was discussed with European officials. He said if participating countries agree, the tournament will be played next year in Winnipeg. No further details were available. PLAYERS CHARGED REGINA (CP) Charges were laid today against two members of the Western Canada Hockey League Swift Current Broncos following an incident between fans and members of the team during a game here Friday night. Dave Williams was charged on two counts of assault and one of causing a disturbance while Terry Ruskowski was charged with assault. The pair were to appear in district court at Regina May 27. Tower of power Kareem Abdul-Jabbar (33) of the Milwaukee Bucks, goes high in the air to make a jump shot over Clifford Ray of the Chicago Bulls. Jabbar hooped 38 points to lead the Bucks to a 115-99 win and a sweep of their best-of-seven series. Smithers guilty of manslaughter BRAMPTON, Ont. (CP) Paul Douglas Smithers, a 17- year-old hockey player with Cooksville midgets, was found guilty of manslaughter Monday in the death of Barrie Ross Cobby. Cobby, 17, died following a fight in an arena parking lot after a game between Cooks- ville and Applewood, Cobby's team, Feb. 18, 1973. The 12-member county court jury, which deliberated for two hours, recommended that in view of Smithers' age, he be given a light sentence. The jury rejected a defence argument that Smithers was acting in self defence when he kicked Cobby in the parking lot. Smithers will be sentenced June 4 after the court receives a presentence report. Arthur Maloney, defence lawyer, said in his summation no doctor brought by the Crown categorically stated that the kick was responsible for Cobby's subsequent death by choking on his vomit He said one of the doctors agreed with him that high ten- sion, apprehension and fear might also induce vomiting Mr. Maloney said Smithers, who is black, had been subject to racial taunts during the game preceding the parking- KAWASAKI KAWASAKI KAWASAKI KAWASAKI KAWASAKI w CO Lightweight Enduro motorcycles (for both on and off-road riding) like this Kawasaki 125cc are the biggest sellers.

"Nothing could be more cal- culated to incite the boy to Mr. Maloney said. Crown Attorney Leo McGuigan said evidence clearly indicated Cobby was a boy who did not want to fight. He said he deplored the racist slurs directed at Smithers but added that evidence indicated this was not the first game in which Smithers had been called names. Kelowna blanks Selkirk WINNIPEG (CP) Kelowna Buckeroos, with a strong passing and checking game, shutout Selkirk Steelers 6-0 Monday night to square their best-of-seven Western Centennial Cup series at one game apiece. Next game will be Wednesday night in Winnipeg before the series shifts to Kelowna for the final games. Archie McKinnon and John Stone each scored twice for the British Columbia Junior Hockey League representatives. Duane Monteith and Randy Naito rounded out the scoring. It appeared the Manitoba Junior Hockey League Steelers took the Buckeroos too lightly in their 5-4 win Sunday as they were unable to mount a sustained drive against the precision-playing Kelowna team. Naito's goal lifted the visitors to a 1-0 lead in the first period and McKinnon's first goal gave Kelowna a 2-0 advantage after the second frame. Then McKinnon and Stone fired short-handed goals oast netminder Andy Stoesz to open up the contest. After Stone's second marker, a quick backhander, Stoesz was replaced by Chester Reimer at 9.20 of the final period.

(CP) Cranbrook Royals outskated and outshot St. Boniface Mohawks Monday night for a 10-1 victory and entry to their first Allan Cup senior hockey final in the nine-year history of the club. Billy Martin ana Bob Murdock headed the scoring parade, getting three goals each before a capacity crowd of Singles were posted by Felix Lavallee, Wayne Gibbs, Brian Dickie and Bob Mayer. John Mazur got the lone Mohawk marker as the Manitoba club trailed 3-1 at the close of the first period and 6-1 following the second. St. Boniface goaltender Bob Rogers played well despite the score, as he blocked 48 shots. Leo Karchie turned aside 28 for Cranbrook. The Royals won the best-of-seven playoff series four games to two to take possession of the Paton of senior amateur hockey supremacy in Western Canada. They now have to wait for an eastern champion to be decided for the Allan Cup national final to be held here. The Royals bounded into a 3-0 lead in the first period of two goals in a row by Martin and one by Felix Lavallee. Mazur replied for the Mohawks. St. Boniface had no reply in the second frame for three more Cranbrook goals as Martin counted, followed by Gibbs and Murdock. Another Murdock goal at of the third was followed by markers from Dickie, Murdock again, and then Mayer, who scored in the last minute as he returned to the ice from the penalty box ELRICH TIRE SPORT SCORES NATIONAL LEAGUE Ea.t Montreal Phila St Louis Chicago New York Pitts Los Ang Houston San Fran Cmcm Atlanta San Diego TODAY'S GAMES Chicago Frailing (2-0) at Cincinnati Billmgham (2-1) Houston Konieczny (0-1) at St Louis Siebert (1-1) New York Matlack (1-0) at San Diego Jones (0-4) Philadelphia Schueler (0-2) at Los Angeles Rau (1-0) Montreal Torrez (2-0) at San Francisco Bradley (2-1) MONDAY'S RESULTS Atlanta 000 000 7 0 Houston 000 130 10 0 Harrison Aker (7) House (8) and Dates) Oseen (3-1) and Edwards HRs Hou Cedeno (2) (4) LEAGUE LEADERS AB R H Pet.
