OTTAWA (CP) (Bunny) Ahcarn and the Cana- dian Amateur Hockey Associa- tion are locked in another battle time over hockey tours. Ahcarn. president of the Inter- appears to be banning Canadian teams from taking part in tour- naments in European countries, even though they were invited by the countries themselves. "We don't know just what is on his said Gordon Jukes. CAHA secretary-man- ager today in mi interview. Four Canadian were tional matches this year with CAHA approval. Ahearn vetoed three of the lours. Despite the veto, a Glendon College team left today for a five-game tour of The 'Nether- lands. the Nether- ands. Ahearn's veto on this trip s still in force. Also under the Ahearn ban is j a scheduled tour of Finland this month by an Ottawa team. The only tour that appears to have escaped Aliearn's notice is the tour of France by a team from Rosemont, Que. The team is scheduled to leave this month. Jukes also said that Ahearn appears to be overstepping his authority. Bylaws of the inter- national federation require that Ahcarn be kept informed of tours only; his permission is not required. Ahearn has said the Canadi- ans have not followed proper procedures in planning their trips. This just isn't so. says Jukes. Chris JIcMasiers were the Sug- ar King marksmen.

Boh Jlun-ay and Jim Pratt completed the visitors scoring with singles.

Apparently coach John Chap- man and his captain had a dif- ference of opinion and McCrea dressed and left the "We'll iron it out before the said Chapman. "I'm sure he'll be back." Meanwhile two-goal perform- ances by Terry Wittchen and Reg Kinch led Red Deer Rust- lers to an easy 8-3 win over Calgary Canucks.

Juc'kes. who now works out of tba CAHA offices al Ihe admin- istrative centre for sport and recreation in Ottawa, was quoted by The Globe as saying an announcement may be made about the new format in a month. Last year, structural changes in the CAHA led to a downgrad- inc of the national junior play- offs and the Ontario Hockey As- sociation Junior A series de- cided this year not lo include Memorial Cup play in its plan: Last. year, when Western Can- ada teams were allowed to use four over-age juniors, the OHA refused to play them under those conditions and Quebec agreed with Ontario lhat neither league would play ihe West in Canadian championship play be- cause of the age discrepancy.

Games meeting A very important Southern Alberta Summer Games meet- ing is set for Taber Thursday afternoon commencing at one o'clock. The meeting is set for the Taber Civic Centre. One of the main topics on the agenda of the gathering will be the Planning Committee's rec- ommendation for a suitable site for the 1972 Games.

Other items on the agenda in- clude methods of financing the Games, whether or not to re- tain the aggregate scoring sys- tem, the possibility of adding new sports to the list and the possible deletion ot some.

Rains, '49ers playoff bid in jeopardy NEW YORK (AP) The fo- gies who masquerade as Wash- ington Redskins have clinched a National Football League play- off berth, eliminating either Los Angeles Rams or San Francisco '49crs. Washington's 38-24 victory over the Rams left them in sec- ond place in the Eastern Divi- sion of tbe National Conference with a 9-3-1 record to Dallas' 10-3, but assured the division's second place finisher of the NFC's fourth and filial playoff spot. The defeat dropped the Rams into second place in the NFC Western Division behind San Francisco. Only the division winner will make the Super Bowl playoffs.

Mr. Munro ylso revealed plans to dress up national ama- teur spcrts championships by holding several in one city in years when the Canada Games arc not scheduled. Mr. Munro said the provincial representatives wure in agreement with n federal work- ing paper outlining "abuses prevalent in amateur hockey in Canada." LIKES DECISION He was pleased, he told a news conference after the closed meeting, at the decision to form a federal-provincial committee of public servants to look into the abuses and suggest remedies, inducting either fed- eral or provincial legislation. The working paper said: "There is a growing fear that young hockey players are being treated as chattels. "Sometimes a boy is com- pelled lo move away from his normal environment to pursue exclusively, o r almost exclu- sively, a hockey career. "The young player nray well find that the demands of hockey are in conflict with his educa- tional pursuits, particularly in the midget and junior classifica- tions." ABUSES LISTED Some of the abuses the com' mittce will investigate include: schedules, such as 70-plus games played by OHA junior league teams; arrangements in junior hockey which appear un- fair "since it is really an out- right professional operation masquerading under amateur o n t r o I by professional hockey over the rules of ama- teur hockey through the agree- ment betrveen the National j Hockey League and the Cana- dian Amateur Hockey Associa- tion. The working paper expressed concern that the newly-formed World Hockey Association would lure boys to turn to pro hockey even earlier than now permitted. The age now is 20 years. REJECT NON-PROSPECTS Amateur hockey also turned its back on players 16 years or older with no pro prospects, the paper said. Also to come under comrtit- tee scrutiny were hockey schools "which advertise the ac- tive participation of hockey stars who, in reality, often spend little or no time at the schools." The conference also was told that Canadians fared badly in fitness tests taken independ- ently in Canada, the United States and Europe. "Information available sug- gests that Jack Canuck, the once fit and stalwart folk figure, may be less fit than Uncle Sam sftould be fat and futile by said a speech pre- pared for delivery by Mr. Pear- son but read in his absence by Mr. Eeaubien. "Both are less fit than the peoples of other countries that have been tested; not only those we often think of as old and backward Europeans, but also even peoples whom we call poor and undevloped." MILLIONS OUTSIDE Millions of Canadians no longer take part in any sport. "One result is that the fitness activity levels of the great mass of adult Canadians are now ex- tremely low; as low as the lourging chair from which you can wa ten on TV supermen playing in super bowls for super said Mr. Pearson's text. Sport Participation Canada's theme will be "the mass in- volvement of people in the area of Mr. Beaubicn told the news conference.
