'Some of our guys just aren't pulling their share of the added the coach, "I don't know what it is." Broncos fell victim to an empty net goal Thursday which didn't help matters. As Ingarfield put it, when you get that close it hurt even more Broncos trailed 4-1 heading into the final 20 minutes but managed to make a game oi it before their efforts fell just short "I sat a couple of guys out in the third said Ingarfield, "and went with just two lines and four defencemen. Broncos play in Winnipeg tonight against the Clubs. It will be the first meeting between the two teams since the Broncos traded Dean Samis and Lome Molleken to the Clubs for Gary Wagner. Brandon built up a three goal lead in the second period, but the Broncos fought back with a pair of third period goals for a thrilling finish The win, before fans, snapped a three game losing streak for the Wheat Kings McMulhn scored two goals for the Wheat Kings, while linemate Rick Blight, Gar" Kaluzmak and Dan Bonar contributed singles. Replying for Lethbridge were Jerry Bancks with two goals and Brian Sutler Glen Hanlon made 28 saves for Brandon, compared to 37 by the Broncos' Rollie Routm Lethbridge was assessed 10 of the game's 16 penalties Each team picked up a major Regma's win, coupled with the Lethbridge loss, put the Pats into sole possess'cn of second place with 36 points, seven behind Saskatoon The Broncos, with 34, are three ahead of Brandon. Meanwhile, Medicine Hat Tigers scored five third period goals and literally storm- ed their way to a 7-4 come from behind win over league leading Victoria Cougars at Medicine Hat in the league's only western division game Thursday night. In the eastern division, Regina Pats out- hustled Flm Flon Bombers, shutting them out 4-0 in Flm Flon. The Cougars and Medicine Hat were tied 1-1 after the first period, and Victoria edg- ed into a 3-2 lead after two.

He said the original NHL debt was of which has been paid and the WHA has paid of its original The CAHA distributes the payments from the pro leagues to the amatuer clubs which developed the drafted players and some amateur clubs are becoming impatient since they depend on the pro payments for their continued operation One such club is Sudbury Wolves of the Ontario Hockey Association Major Junior A series who are waiting for a payment from the NHL Wash- ington Capitals who signed Wolves player Mike Marson. "I've checked on a daily basis with the OHA and they in turn with the CAHA on the money owing us for Wolves owner Bud Burke told the Globe and Mail. "I've even sent a telegram to Milt Schmidt (Washington general manager) "There has been a great hue and cry over the WHA and its lack of credibility. Well, peo- ple in glass houses shouldn't throw stones. The credibility of NHL clubs like Washington is at an all-time low as far as the Sudbury Wolves are concerned."

Police say they believe they now are close to discovering the identities of the ringleaders of a so-called horse racing ring which has infiltrated the sport and fixed races The racing establishment, which prides itself on its ef- ficiency, has been shaken out of its complacency by the scandal and has launched an effort to clean up the sport. French racing has grown rich on the proceeds of off- track betting, to the point where the amenities at the major courses, the prize money and the standard of thoroughbreds, are the envy of most of the world. The scandal now afflicting the sport is unprecedented. Millions of Frenchmen who never go near a race course have been shocked, since it in- volves their weekly bets on the tierce, the state-run tote. HELD ON SUNDAY Nearly everyone in France dreams of winning the tierce, in which millions stake three francs about 80 cents each Sunday hoping to pick the first three horses in the right order. The prize can be enormous, especially since the race counting for the tierce is usually a handicap with a large field The scandal involves the tierce run Dec. 9 last year. The event was the Prix Bride Abattue, a steeplechase at the fashionable Auteuil course on the Paris outskirts. Of the 24 runners, 15 quickly tailed off, including all the favorites. Subsequently it was discovered that large numbers of multiple bets had been placed on the other nine runners. Most of these bets were losers, but those who had made them also had the winn- ing combination of three out- siders that paid off at odds of about to one. PAYOFF FROZEN The tierce payoff was frozen and a criminal investigation was begun. Now, a year later, the results of the investigation are beginning to show. Three top steeplechase jockeys are in jail on corrup- tion charges alleging they reined in their horses Half a dozen men who plac- ed large bets on the winning combination have been detain- ed and police are trying to determine whether they plac- ed the bets on behalf of un- derworld figures. Police are investigating the theory that a number of jockeys were bribed or in- timidated into slowing their mounts so that outsiders would win and give a bumper payoff to the gamblers The racing world is almost unanimous in approving the vigor with which the police in- quiry has been carried out John Cunnington, a leading trainer, said "It is painful to witness the arrests of jockeys whose talent and courage one appreciates ELRICH TIRE SPORT SCORES WESTERN CANADA Eastern Division WORLD ASSOCIATION Canadian Division W L T F A L T F A Pts Saskatoon 18 7 7 171 115 18 12 1 140 116 37 Regina 17 14 2 136 130 18 11 0 124 102 36 Lethbridge 16 15 2 145 147 15 12 1 114 85 31 Brandon 13 18 5 145 180 14 9 0 90 76 28 Flm Flon 7 21 6 119 190 13 14 1 86 93 27 Winnipeg 6 19 8 113 182 Division Western England 19 B 1 112 90 39 Victoria 24 9 3 219 135 10 13 1 70 80 21 Kamloops 18 11 1 142 114 10 16 0 88 102 20 Med Hat 17 9 3 135 104 5 26 0 65 141 10 New West 15 13 4 144 129 Division Edmonton 12 11 5 133 120 20 11 0 139 92 40 Calgary 4 20 6 96 152 Diego 15 13 1 98 100 31 13 12 2 94 95 28 NATIONAL 12 15 0 110 107 24 Patrick 9 19 2 77 128 20 W L T F A LEADERS Phila 21 6 4 121 67 Rangers 13 10 8 122 105 34 Islanders 12 12 8 105 94 Wpg 29 23 52 Bernier Que 22 26 48 Atlanta 13 15 5 89 99 Hou 18 28 46 Smythe SD 15 28 43 Vancouver 20 8 5 125 91 45 Chicago 14 13 3 109 85 31 St Louis 13 13 5 109 110 31 Minnesota 10 18 4 85 130 24 Kan City 5 22 4 75 138 14 Norris Tor 14 26 40 Nilsson Wpg 10 30 40 Hughes Hou 25 14 39 Walton, Minn 20 19 39 Simpson, Tor 25 12 37 Hinse, Hou 14 23 37 Montreal 17 6 10 140 100 LA 17 4 10 98 57 Pitts 11 14 6 123 116 SCORES Detroit 9 17 3 86 121 Wash 3 26 4 75 177 1 1 NY Rangers 3 Adams 5 Toronto 1 Buffalo 22 6 5 153 106 Angeles 4 Washington 1 Boston 19 7 6 157 93 City 4 Pittsburgh 4 Toronto 9 16 6 101 123 24 Calif 6 21 6 81 142 Vancouver 3 Houston 1 NHL LEADERS Esposito.
