Beneath the surface, several French-speaking hockey ob- servers insisted, was a growing conflict of race and langu- age. Like the Rlack men in baseball, the French-Canadian hockey players are becoming more militant. Their n! men! Uskes many forms but, basically, they object to the Knplisli-.speaking players' presumption that English is the language on. a basically French- Canadian team such as Lrs Canadiens. "When three or four French players discuss something in a hotel said Andre Trudelle in La Presse of Montreal, "they naturally speak French. But when an English-speaking player conies along they all have to switch to English because this player hasn't bothered lo learn French." For a heticr understanding of this unique problem on the Stanley Cim chan-pions, I questioned goalie Ken Dryden, the McGill University Law School student and Conn Smyths Trophy-winner. "If you're a French-speaking said Dryden, "and you step sjieLklnf! French and start speaking English you are conceding. You are going out of your way to speak a lan- guage that is uiifiimiliar to you. You can't articulate as well and you're it just fcr the sake of some guy who isn't going to the trr.uble of doing it. "Thai, logically, is wr.-ng. Bui I think that up to Ihis point it isn't of a biting wrciig. To some people it is, and I think it Kill become more so. but right at (lie moment this isn't some'.iiing that's in the forefront of a pel-son's mind." Drycen. who coonly sir-ported Al MacNcil before he was deported to Halifax where he's managing and coaching the Nova Scotia Voyagetirs, said he is trying to learn French. "Right now 1 can understand people are asking me in the Toronto native said, "but I really can't say in French uhat I want to tell a person. As soon as I finish law school I'm going to take French lessons." Tile Frenel'.-Er.glish conflict in hotkey took on bitter pro- portions last Spring when the St. Catherines Black Hawks for- feited Memorial Cup series with the Quebec Remparts at a point when Quebec was leading the playoff three games to two. The Ontario sextet feared physical attack from French-speaking fans if the teams played their scheduled sixth game in Quebec City. Many observers believe the St. Catherines officials over- dramatized the problem in Quebec. Dryden said many people told him it was the Ontario hoys who incited the French-speak- ing crowd but later flamed the Quelwckers. "This trouble didn't happen when Edmonton played in said Dryden. "The Edmonton coach said the French- Canadian fans were the greatest in North America. "St. Catherines was afraid to lose, and that more than anything was the reason they decided not to go for the sixth game. Their statements about not reluming were just made to save face." Dryden emphasized that (.be French Canadian hockey player, like most professional athletes, is not a political animal. Al least noi yet and that minimizes his militancy. "If a man doesn't have an alternative to playing hockey and bo glad be is and won't want fo PCCK the boat." But, the times they a changing. The French-Cana- dian players may soon be thinking tough; just as some French- Canadian sports writers such as Claude Larochcllc of Le Soleil and his confreres are talking lough. "The fact, said Andre Trudelle, "that they will no longer shut I ALWAVS TAKc MORE THANlNEEft-WKAT I SHE WORSHIPS IN ME 15 'ER-, GENEROSITY Lots of action Lelhbridge Commun i t y Col- lege Kodiaks will continue their exhibition basketball season Friday evening.
