Vancouver officials, who made provisions for a farm club in the WHL in their settle- ment over indemnification for loss of: the Vancouver territory, have been given until the end of the month to make playing errangements with tile owners of the Calgary arena.

The others are Port- land, Seattle, San Diego, Den- ver, Salt Lake City and Phoenix.

It was announced today that scheduled games with Calgary set for Dec. 26 and 27 have been postponed. The Dec. 26 jame was set for Lethbridge with the two clubs meeting in Calgary on the 27. Kings will play Cougars Lethbridge Feb. 11. of Alberta Supreme Court or- dered tile Edmonton Metropoli- tan Hockey Association to allow 13-year-old Mark Lindsay Mc- Donald to play with the team of his choice. Mark's father, Hugh B. Mc- Donald, had asked for court ac- tion because, ho said, the ciation had refused to permit his son to play in (lie Knights of Columbus Bantam AA program during the 1970-71 season. BEST FOR SON Mr. McDonald said it would be in his son's best interests, religiously and morally, to play for the Knights of Columbus. The McDonalds are Roman Catholic. Juckes said there is a provi- sion in CAHA rules that says a player can go to court if he feels his appeal has been han- dled in bad faith or "justice was not satisfied that is, if he felt we had conducted some sort of kangaroo court or something.

Seventeen of these were granted in favor of the player. Two players who were not successful in their appeal to the CAHA, Ron ChipperfieW Lawrence Sacharuk, went to court. ALLOWED TO PLAY A one-week interim injunction was granted Nov. 24 allowing Chipperfield, who had been sus- pended, to play for Brandon Wheat Kings of the Western Canada Hockey League. The in- junction was later extended to Dec. 21. Sacharuk, an 18-year-old de- fenceman, was granted a tem- porary court injunction Nov. 13 allowing him to play with Sas- katoon Blades of the WCHL. He went to court after the CAHA had refused a request allowing Mm to transfer to Saskatoon from Niagara Falls Flyers of the Ontario Hockey Association. Writing about tile Sacharuk case, sports editor Jack Cook of Saskatoon Star-Phoenix, said there must be some degree of control over the movements of plavers, even though they might be 15 or 16 years old. "It boils down to the survival of the sport Cook said. If everybody was allowed to move freely, the simply get richer and all other teams would fade away but rules must be reasonably flexi- ble." The CAHA should riot hare allowed Sacharuk case to go as far as the courts. Winning a court decision doesn't always guarantee the player a choice.
