Certainly it has helped the players with bigger contracts" he says And that means more money Dennis, who played with Team Canada 72 feels the World Hockey Association will do as well as the National League players did with their 4-3-1 log Some of the players who will meet Russia this time are he added "You take Bobby, or Gordie Howe, these guys are great But what about the lack of speed in the players in this series7 Hull believes speed isn't the key factor Control of the play is a must against the precision style play of the Russians You have to slow the Russians down, break up their patterns What if the WHA Team Canada loses' "No harm done says Hull It won't have any real effect on pro hockey in Canada and the U S feels Hull People know that the best team is not representing Canada "Look at it this smiles if the WHA wins that means the Russians are going backwards And you could tell he liked that thought Hull agrees the Soviets are very skilled, their at- titude and discipline are second to none That is why he and Gary emphasize to the boys at the school en- couragement of their teammates is a big thing The team is one single unit with each player a part of it Hull is a very effective goal-scorer He possesses one of the hardest, if not the hardest, shooting hockey He is therefore a dangerous opponent In last year's Stanley Cup playoffs Hull was hur- ting Was he intentionally bodied by opposing players9 Yes, he admits, but only because he and the other guy are playing for money "We're paid to he says, "and paid to win The job must be done But youngsters should play for fun The emphasis of late in hockey is on the big guy Philadelphia Flyers won the Stanley Cup with a bruising club What about the Black Hawks' According to Hull, and he should know, the Hawks have tough guys on the team but they are controlled by Billy Reay, Chicago coach And Hull's views on the signing of 17-year-old players with junior eligibility left' He feels it is all right for some players and lot depends on the team There is no question a player 17 would be almost unheard of in the NHL when there were but six teams But not so today The opportunity is greater, and Hull feels on a team like Chicago or Montreal a young man could fit in Brian Mulvey, a 17-year-old, just signed with the Hawks Chicago officials feel he's ready now Hull says that Mulvey will get all the help needs from his new teammates But he also adds that word has it Mulvey doesn't need much help At 29 Dennis Hull says he will play as long as the game is still fun It is that right now and he hopes it will continue that way He would like nothing better than a crack at the Russians again 'Only this time in December or January he says It is also his opinion that an individual team at that time could do as well as a Team Canada He played with Jean Ratelle and Rod Gilbert of the New Rangers Had he been with Chicago mates Pit Martin and Jim Pappin, it would have been even better Hull likes what he has seen of the west He can't believe the size of the farms Where he farmed 30 acres was a good spread Opposing players don t give Hull 30 acres to wander in on the ice, but NHL goalies would love to see him held at bay some 30 acres away good size spread or not Summer Games reach halfway point CALGARY (CP) The Alberta Summer Games mov- ed into its third day today with about half of the 20 sports completed after a Calgary runner who dominated two track events Thursday repeated his gold medal per- formance in a third track and a field event Friday Victor Quan of Calgary,

four the highest of any com- petitor in the Games The 15 year old Calgary track star s 200 metre time was wind assisted, making it ineligible for entry into the record books as gusty winds whistled

39 metres The Edmonton field team took the thrower's relay gold medal by completing the 400 metre relay for field athletes in 50 1 seconds In other events Wetaskiwin preserved its perfect Softball

with a 3-2 win over Calgary, which brought home the silver medal St Albert a suburb of Edmonton, took the Montreal gets approval MONTREAL (CP) Willi Daume, vice-president of the International Olympic Com- mittee Friday gave a general stamp of approval to preparations being made here for the 1976 Summer Games Daume, president of the 1972 Olympics in Munich, said at a news conference that his approval followed "two days and two nights" of intensive deliberations with members of the organizing committee and Mayor Jean Drapeau Unlike previous visits when he came to advise the com- mittee of the experiences of Munich, this was an official trip made on behalf of the IOC It was to investigate reports emanating in Europe that progress here was slow, that construction schedules were falling behind and that there were financial dif- ficulties Daume said his investiga- tion covered most aspects of the Games including a study of the structure of the organiz- ing committee and the reported high price of tickets to events He said that his study show- ed that "progress in the organizing committee was better than ever expected" and that in many cases Montreal was further ad- vanced in its planning than Munich had been with less than two years remaining before the Games began The fact that Montreal had called laigely on the ex- perience of Munich in its organization of the 1972 Games had helped im- mensely, he said On the subject of Montreal plans for a self-financed Games through the sale of Olympic coins, stamps and lotteries, Daume said he had talked in detail about finances with Roger Rousseau, presi- dent of the organizing com- mittee, and Mayor Jean Drapeau, the man responsible for the construction of the main Olympic venues "I have studied the results up to Daume said "I will tell the IOC (at Vienna in October) that we can be confi- dent as far as the organization is concerned Daume admitted his greatest worry was the plann- ed buildings, with the main stadium still not beyond the excavation stage But he said he had spoken to architects, contractors and engineers and that while Europeans viewing the slow progress "may be shocked." he had been assured that completion dates could be met The biggest danger is Daume said of pos- sible work stoppages in the construction industry "But I understand that people here are working on this When Expo 67 was under construction, the city reached an agreement with the building trades that work would not be halted because of labor disputes STAKES RECORD SET SARATOGA SPRINGS N Y (AP) Ruffian set a stakes rec ord Friday of 1 08 3-5 for the six furlongs in winning the Spinaway by lengths at Saratoga race track It was Russian's fifth victory, the last four of them in stakes races, in as many starts, and the

said today The request was made necessary by the move of the Swift Current Broncos of the Western Canada Hockey League to Lethbndge effective this season The Longhorns were unable to negotiate a rental arrangement suitable to themselves, with the management of a new arena being built for the Canada Winter Games next February League officials said it would be about mid- September before any action could be taken on the Longhorn request as the schedule would have to be redrawn LETHBRIDGE FISH AND GAME RIFLE RANGE Open Sunday, Aug. 25th a.m.-5 p.m. North of the City CLAY BIRDS .OO SHOTGUN
