The" Hamilton Tigers, an aged and rickety club, sneeringly termed The Raggedy-Annes" come along and walloo the Koyals in three straight games. Alter tr.e smoke had subsided the same super- lative merchants come out from SASKATOOK.

One thing is certain, saskatoon's largest crowd of the season will at hi on the game., The arena's 4.38o reserved seats were sold last week and bv last night there were less than 500 standing room tickets left The Tigers themselves would feel Generally, Monarchs oat- skated the eastern Canada cham- pions, hsue had jBcre scoring op- portunities but have lacked the fin- ish that, ihe smooth-working Irish machine has around Thss, too. the Monarch hinder- ed in Monday's game 'hrougn Iocs of Clint Albright, a big. game guy who suffered a leg gash in a light workout a few hours before that game.

Publicity irom the East makes us want to see the _ Tieers Publicitv from the West mikes us want to see the Stamps. So almost; everyone within running distance wants a ticket to a senes between the two clubs and tries to get one. All the games are crowded and all the games, except possibly Monday night's encounter, are flopperoos as far as Allan cup hockev goes. Almost everyone is disappointed with what they see and can't understand why such "wonderful" teams coula perform so poorly. The reason of course is simnle. Tons, absolute tons. tmbiicity have again built the puo- iic up "for an awiul letaown. it the Hamilton-Calgary senes naont been so brilliantly baUyhooed pro- bably most of us would have been more than satisfied with the hockey we saw.

Several thousand people, paying up to seat, attended. aU excited about what was apparently in store for them. Unfortunately the, boxers hadn't read the publicity about themselves and put on such a hum- dinger of a bone that the referee, BUI Burke from Winnipeg, stopped the proceedings ia the sixth round because the boys weren't half try- ing. Fifty per cent of their purses were confiscated and they both were sent home with their reputa- tions dragging in the mud. And boxing, as a logical outcome of the fiasco, will remain dormant in To- ronto'for many months to come. We wers hoodwinked.

TORONTO, April __Outgrowth of criticism by Both -St. Michael's College and "Winnipeg; Monarchs, one new referee will be in action for that sixth game tonight in this 2Sth renewal of the Mem- orial series and a, victory for the Irish irill crown them as Cana- dian junior champions for the second consecutive season. With St. Mike's leading the game series 3-2 announcement was made last night by W- A. Hewitt. C-A- BLA. registrar, that George Hayes of Ingersoll, Ont. will replace Harold Gnerard of Port Arthur, Ont., following objec- tions by both clubs to his work In the series, Hayes, who operated in the Amer- ican hockey league during the 1944- 45 season, is rated one of the top amateur referees in Canada. He will work alongside Stan Pratt of Ottawa to form, an all-eastern team of officials. Guerard was reportedly criticized by Monarchs for allowing starry Tod Sloan of St. Mike's to handle a penalty shot awarded to his team in the fifth game of the senes here Monday. They maintained that since not involved in the fracas which brought about the penalty shot, he should not have been able to handle it. The polished Toronto collegians are something like 2-1 favorites to beat Monarchs to finish the series tonight. If the rusged westerners win the playoS game will be played Saturday night.

C.ATT A. registrar and chairman of the rules committee, that George Hayes of Ingersoll, Ont.. will replace Harold Guerard of Port Arthur, Ont- for the sixth game tonight, following objections to work in the series by both St. Michael's College and Winnipeg- Monarchs. A copy of Craig's protest was forwarded to Hewitt. Text of the protest follows: "On behalf of the Manitoba Ama- teur Hockey association, I strongly object to the decision of referees allowing St. Mike's Tod Sloan to take penalty shot that should have been fired by team-mate Leo Cos- tello in the fifth game of the Mem- orial cup finals. "A plaver who is fouled is the only player entitled to take penalty sho't. Goalie Jack Gibson of Mon- archs fought with Costello and the latter, not any other player, should have taken the penaltv shot. "The rule governing that point Is subject to no other interpreta- tion. I understand that Winnipeg Monarchs do not wish to protest but immediate action is requested to have referees instructed correctly for balance of series."
