Memorial Cup Questionable TORONTO (CP) The future of the Memorial Cup as Can- ada's emblem of junior hockey supremacy is in doubt. Tubby Schmalz, president of the Ontario Hockey Association, said Monday his league will not play western province teams for the national title. "The Quebec juniors will not play the west he said. "But there will be an eastern championship series between the OHA and the Q ue b e c league." The OHA decision to sever re- lations with the western juniors results from anagreement whereby the independent west- era teams re-entered the Cana- dian Amateur Hockey Associa- tion. Under the agreement, the Na- tional Hockey League agreed to give each-western team travelling allowance. Eastern teams get no travelling allow- ance from' the NHL. "It wasn't only the said Schmalz "What we can't agree with is that the CAHA gives the western teams per- mission to use four over-age players this season and cut down to two the following sea- son and then phase them out completely the year after that. "Our players aren't going to play against over-age players and neither will Quebec." He said further meetings on the hassle will be held in Ot- tawa at a CAHA meeting. No date for the meeting was given. APPOINTMENT Gordon G, Paterson, President of College Mercury, is pleased to anouncc the appointment of Guy J.

Phono 327-5763 Stiff Competition For Locals Norcrest Loses Opener, Meets Trail Tonight THUNDEE BAY (Special) Coach John Koskoski was far from unhappy with his Nor- crest Little League club Mon- day evening. In a telephone interview with Koskoski and his partner Jim S'zucs from Thunder Bay, the site of the Canadian Little League championships, both coaches indicated they were far from out of the four-team final. Action opened at this On tario centre Monday and the Norcrest All-Stars dropped a 4 0 verdict to Windsor, Ont. in the second game. In Monday's first game de fending Canadian champions Court Almost Suffered Upset TORONTO (CP) Margaret Court of Australia who said she had trouble getting "up" to play Rosemary Casals, found herself in a real battle before winning the women's singles crown at the Canadian open tennis cham- pionship Monday night 6-8, 64, 6-4. "I didn't get keyed up at all today, which was bad for she said after the two-hour match. "I had played her four or five times before this year and I hadn't had any trouble beating her." Mrs. Court, current Wimble- don queen, also said she failed to concentrate during the first set in which the pint-sized Miss Casals, who is eight inches shorter than the 5-10 Mrs. Court, ran up a 4-0 lead. Miss Casals' strategy of at- tempting to get the jump on her opponent paid off in the first set when she elected to receive Mrs. Court's service and broke her serve in the first and third games. MUST KEEP LEAD "I wanted to stay ahead of her or at least even with Miss Casals said. "If she gets away with the first three games, that's it." Miss Casals also held a 3-1 lead in the deciding set but Mrs. Court, top-ranked woman tennis player in the world, rose to the challenge. After Miss Casals grabbed a 3-1 lead in the final set, Mrs. Court kept the pressure on to break her service in the sixth, eighth and 10th games, the last three the American served. Mrs. Court admitted later she "played her backhand too much." Miss Casals, who lost to Mrs. Court in the semi-final at Wim- bledon this year, said she was playing a defensive game. The victory was wortli to Mrs. Court and Miss Casals earned for reaching the final. They teamed Sunday to win the doubles crown and split MORE FOR MEN The men earned bigger money. Hod Laver of Australia Mcked up for his singles victory Sunday and countryman Bill Bowrey and Marty Reissen of Evanston, 111., divided Monday night when they took the men's doubles crown. Prize money in the tourna- ment, sponsored by Kothman's of Pall Mall Canada Ltd., to- talled more than twice last year's total. Reissen and Bowrey made short work of the third-seeded combination of Cliff Drysdale of South Africa and Fred Stolle of Australia, 6-3, 6-2. It was the first itme the two had played together hi a tourna- ment. The winners broke Drysdale's service in. each of the five games he served. Nortlicott, Shedd Named For Honours TORONTO (CP) Calgary curler Ron Northcott and bad- minton queen Marjory Shedd were named Monday night to Canada's Sports Hall of Fame. Northcott skipped three na- tional champions in four years and won three world titles while Miss Shedd, winner of more than 20 national badminton ti- tles, has represented Canada in mora international competition than any other competitor. The announcement was made by W. Harold Rea, chairman of the hall's board of governors. The two were selected from 13 nominations considered by the governors. Northcott, a 34-year-old sales- man, this year skipped his rink to an undefeated 10-0 won-loss record in the national curling championship, the first time any rink has gone through the Canadian tournament without a loss. His three world titles leave him one shy of the four won by Ernie Richardson of Regina, who dominated the curling world in the late 1950s and early '60s. Miss Shedd of Toronto, has won seven singles titles and 15 doubles championships and was a member of Canada's interna- tional Tiber Cup team in 1956, 1959, 1962, 1965 and 1968. Her singles titles were 1953-55 and 1960-63. She retired from singles competition after 1963. Valleyfield, Que. shut out Trail B.C. 2-0. Norcrest and Trail meet to night with the winner remain ing alive. For the loser, it wil be a trip home. "We're really proud of this said the two coaches "everybody gave it their all." What was the big difference in the game? 'It really wasn't a big dif- ference, but the key was our lack of hits." Norcrest managed only one hit, a single by David Kosko- ski, off pitcher Frank latonna, who fanned 13 on his way to victory. 'We picked up one hit and had three walks, added Szucs, ;and that was it." On the other, the coaches pointed out, Reno. Trentini only gave up four hits to Windsor and the score was 1-0 going into the bottom of the fifth inning. "We just couldn't get a break when we needed replied Koskoski when asked if they bad any scoring chances even with the lack of hits. 'With a timely single we were right in the game a cou- ple of times before the fifth he continued. The coach went on to point out that the club had men in scoring position three times Dut to no avail. Besides Kosko ski's single, Earl Ingarfield, Brian Robin- son and Koskoski each picked up a walk. Ingarfield and Kos- ioski both stole second but that was as far as they got. Coach Koskoski didn't say it Monday evening but Sunday evening, in his first call back to Lethbridge, he indicated the james would be played under ights, something new for Nor- crest. Norcrest advanced to the Ca- nadian final after shading Moose Jaw 3-2 in the zone fi- nal held in Lehtbridge last week. :'We're down, but not' out, said Srues, "remember we lost our first game in the zone fi- nals but came back, we have a ot of pride." In the. first game Valleyfield pitcher Yvon Therrien fired a me-hitter at Trail, matching latonna's performance. Windsor and Valleyfield will meet after the Norcrest-Trail ;ame for the "A" division title. City Advances The City of Lethbridge elimi- nated Woolco from the Busi- nessmen's Fastball League playoffs Monday evening with a 9-6 triumph. The loss was the second straight for Woolco, snocking them from the semi- iihals. Joe Karl was the winner while the loss went to Elaine Spademan. Tosh Kanashiro led the way 'or the City with two doubles and a single while Doug Jack- son chipped in with two doubles. Nijinsky 111, Has Ring Worm LONDON (AP) The multi- million-dollar racehorse, Nijin- >ky, is recovering at his Irish stables on a millionaire's diet of raw eggs and Irish stout from a skin rash called "American ring worm." Nijinsky, owned by American Charles Engelhard, has won all lis 10 races and is being aimed it the English classic St. Leger, ;he coveted Prix de Triomphe it Longchamps, France, and ,he Washington (D.C.) Interna- ional at Laurel Park. Then the son of Northern Dan- cer, owned by E. P. Taylor of Toronto, will go to stud at Bill fancock's, Clairborne farm in {entucky.' Nijinsky has been syndicated or a record million in 32 hares, 10 of them held by En- lelhard. The American owner turned down a European syndicate's .id of million for Nijinsky ,o stand at stud in Ireland. Engelhard, of Far Hills, N.J., locidcd that the three-year-old, wed by Taylor, should stay at stud as part of his horse racing of the most suc- cessful in the world. A nagging doubt exists about Nijinsky because of the skin rash although Irish trainer Vin- cent O'Brien said: "I'm satis- fied with Nijinsky's progress." O'Brien made his comment shortly after attending the Sara- toga Sales and having a talk with Engelhard. The St. Leger will be run Sept. 12 and the French race Oct. 4. Those two will be fol- lowed by the Laurel Park race involving horses from all over tho world. Bowlers Meet Wednesday A meeting of the.

Bill Hughes, manager of CKNW, said a play-by-play >roadcaster has not yet been named, but added that Jim I o b s o n, long-time hockey Broadcaster for rival station CKWX in Vancouver, is "a irime candidate." Asked how much the station paid for the hockey rights, Canucks general manager Bud 'oile said only: "plenty." Television rights for the earn, he said, "seem to be all agreed except the dates." Says: Golf. Million Dollar Winnir, LEFT HAND CONTROL It is an axiom that in any golf iwing the left hand always remains firm and in control of the club. Whenever it loosens, you automatically lose con- trol. To be certain that your left hand is in the proper position, the club grip must be secure between the last two fingers (espe- cially the little and the butt of your hand. To get this feeling, hold the SO. in your left hand only. .thumb on the top- right of the leather, -the club .running along the roots of the finger. Now, before you place your right'hand, hold the club straight out in front of'you. You'll feel that pressure between the last two fingers and the butt of your hand. Now you'll be able to keep it that way through the swing. Hal. N.WI.
