There is talk of forming a couple of professional leagues; already there are a num- ber of pro teams which tour the country regularly, deflating the egos of countless young dribblers. In Canada basketball has made enormous strides, although "hockey remains undisputed king of winter sport. Toronto and the Niagara peninsula haie taken the great indoor game to their wealthy bos- oms and it's preity hard to find a kid in those districts who doesn't and liSe the game. Maple Gardens, where Conn Smythe Co. regularly wallow in green- backs, has recently been the scene of two mammoth basketball attrac- tions featuring two teams from our modest neighbor and two from Canada. Both lured considerably more than 10.000 customers apiece through the turnstiles and there have been no reports of any complaints. So it looks as if the large eastern cities are going to go in for high class baskektoall in a big way from now on. In Alberta, as most evervbodv knows, basketball activity has pret- ty well always been centred around Raymond and Magrath, although much interest in the pastime has recently been apparent around Ed- monton, auspices thanks to the vigorous numerous Americans stationed there during the war. Graduates from colleges in Utah, reside in Raymond and dis- trict, first introduced the game to southern Alberta a number of jears Westerners Hold 3-1 Edge In Games Favored To Win (By Herb Jones, Canadian Press Staff Writer) SASKATOON, April Tigers have found their hockey road, the lightning speed and play- making that won them the eastern crown, but betting along the Allan cup trail today indicated they probably found it too late. Tigers showed, for a period at least, they had found themselves last night. They blasted in three first-period goals to defeat Calgary Stampeders 3-1 and save them- selves from elimination in the fourth game of the best-of- seven series. But the big, tough they didn't look so tough last hold a 3-1 edge in games and by that fact are favored to take the Canadian senior amateur hockey crown. It was Calgary's own kind of stiff back-checking game that beat them last night, the kind that had given them victories by scores of 6-2 and 6-1 in the first two games and 4-3 in the closer, harder contest at Calgary when Tigers showed their fight for the first time in the series.

Hence the renowned Raymond Union Jacks, easily one of the best known and admired basketball quintets in Canada. Much interest in the cage game has been apparent in Lethbncge for a number of years but due to lack of floor SDace it has been forced to he dormant When the City Centre is finally built (we know the exact date but we won't tell) it is to be honed that adequate playing and saectator space for basketball is included in one of the larger recreation buddings. The new Collegiate obviously will have better facilities for the game than it has now. so if the City Centre comes through there is no reason Ijethbndge shouldn't become known as a basketball to-sm.

The best they could do after that hectic first was a goal by speedv Bunny Dame on a mid-ice relay from Doug Cairns. It was a neat effort but it was not enough. After their fust-period flash, the Tigers spent most of the time laving back protecting their greying goahe, Art Childs, who played a stellar per- formance. Despite the fact they are still on the bnnk of elimination there was a renewed kind of confidence Jn the Tiger camp that they could take the big westerners in- three more games.
