Crawford objected to two close pilches from Ken Forsch and started fcr the mound, only lo be intcrcc-pLcd by catcher Jack Hiatt. The two exchanged words and then began swinging, exchanging several punches. Crawford suffered puffed lips and Hiatt had a spike wound on his right leg and a bruised shin.

Canadian officials refuse entry OTTAWA (CT) The execu- tive director of the Canadian Amateur Hockey Association said today Canada lias refused an informal invitation from Japan to send a team to the Olympics at Sapporo, Japan, in 1972. Gordon Juclie.s said in an in- terview he wrote to the vice- president of the Canadian Olym- pic committee, Frank fihaugh- nessy of Montreal, saying that a Canadian hockey team "would not be prepared to go to Japan" even if a formal invitation was received. If Canada can not enler a top professional team in world com- petition it will not enter an am- ateur team, he said. That is the position taken by Canadian hockey since January, 1970. "I simply reaffirmed it."
