(CP) Canadian drivers surprised the ield of entries in qualifying rounds Friday in the guaran- eed North Am snow- mobile races in this central- Alberta town. Qualifying continued today for both the North Am and he Shrine International finals, set for Sunday on the 6-10- mile Peace Hills Oval. Total purse could be the ASHPHALT PAVING TOLIESTRUP SAND and GRAVEL Construction Co. Ltd. PHONE 328-2702 327-3610 world's richest, depending upon entries. Entries received Friday, how- ever, totalled about 350, less han the expected 500. Friday's qualifying r o u n ds marred by injuries, produced a few upsets by British Colum )ia and Alberta drivers. In the event for machines with 800 cubic centimetre en- gines Heinz Whiehmann of Ter race, B.C., was a dark horse ii winning the first heat. John La Rose of Stettler, Alta., wa second and 1968 North Amen can champion Myrl. Schroede of Meridian, Idaho, finishe fourth. Only the first plac finisher qualifies in each hea The featured 800-cc final Sun day is shaping up as a close competitive affair with last- year's North Am champion Jerry Lust of Coif ax, Wash., winning the second heat and Duane Eck of Drigs, Idaho, a former world champion, win- ning the third. Bill Carlson of Calgary qualified in the fourth heat. Early in January, Red Kelly suggested his Pittsburgh Pen- guins would have difficulty making the National Hockey playoffs this season be- cause Chicago Black Hawks would replace one oi four ex- ansion teams who made the Vest Division playoffs last year. The Black Hawks are making a runaway of the division race, as expected, and defending champion St. Louis Blues are a solid second, leaving the other :wo playoff berths wide open. At the time of Kelly's com- ment, the Penguins were m fifth place, six points behind.Minne- sota North Stars and Philadel- phia Flyers and keeping just ahead of Los Angeles Kings and California Golden Seals. The club's financial picture wasn't bright either; a problem of the operation likely to be felt at the player level. The Penguins, who finished second last year, lost their next game but since have rebounded to win seven and tie two of their next 11, the latest a 2-2 tie at St. Louis Friday night when hard- luck Ron Schock swatted in Dune McCallum's rebound with less than three minutes left in the game. FERGUSON CLICKS In the only other game, vet- eran John Ferguson produced a 3-2 victory for Montreal Cana- diens over California Golden eals with two third-period oals that broke a 1-1 tie. The Penguin tie moved them nto a fourth-place tie with Min- nesota two points behind Phila- elphia. Montreal strengthened 3 hold on third in the East, noving eight points ahead of 'oronto Maple Leafs who have )layed the. same number of james. Following a scoreless first pe- riod at Oakland, California's Gary Croteau and Henri Rich- ard exchanged goals in the sec- ond period, paving the way for Ferguson's 7th and 8th of the season that moved Montreal into a 3-1 lead. Goalie Phil Myre drew an assist on Ferguson's first goal. Schock is one of two brothers developed by the Boston Bruin organization no longer with the Stanley Cup champions. Dan, five years Ron's junior, was delivered to Philadelphia Flyers in late January as part of a deal that sent centre Mike Walton to Boston via the Flyers. One of the NHL's original "bonus babies" in the early 1960s, Ron's promising pro car- eer ground to a near halt through a series of injuries. PRO WITH KINGSTON After an outstanding junior preparation with Niagara Falls yers, the Chapleau, Ont.-born ayer turned pro with Kingston the old Eastern Pro League 1962, moved to Minneapolis of e Central League the follow- g season and didn't catch a gular berth with the Bruins ntil 1964. With the coming of expansion, ie was claimed by St. Louis in 967, moving to Pittsburgh in in two seasons. Minnesota, meanwhile, dropped centre Tommy Wil- liams from their roster for insu- bordination toward coach Jack Gordon. The Duluth-born veteran had 12 goals this season, almost equalling his 15 goa'.s last year, but his over-all production is well off the 196J-70 pace when lie set a club-record 52 assists. Early-season injuries and the recent death of his wife were said to have contributed to Wil Hams' poor play this year and general manager Wren Blair said his contract will continue to be honored until the North Stars can negotiate a trade. Harry Howell, a 19-year vet- eran of the NHL, was purchased JoJo and partner triumph Canadian pair miss out PETERBOROUGH, Ont. (CP) A strawberry blonde who grew up with the unlikely name of JoJo because she couldn't pronounce her given name, and a history student with thick, gold-rimmed glasses today are the new North American figure skating pairs champions. Alicia Jo Starbuck and Ken Shelley of Los Angeles staged one of their finest free-skating performances Friday night to clinch the pairs title over Mark and Melissa Militano of New York City and Toronto's Val and Sandra Bezic. JohnMisha Petkevichof Great Falls, Mont., despite being beaten in the free skating by Canadian champion Toller Cranston, took the gold medal in men's stogies on the strength of his earlier first place in the compulsory figures. In the only other class skated Friday night, the United States couples retained the top three places after the set-pattern dances. Miss Starbuck and Shelley, both 19, who have been skating together since they were nine years old, said they now are looking forward to grabbing "any medal we can get" in the world championships Feb. 23-28 at Lyon, France. Cranston won a standing ova- tion from the crowd of with his strong free-skating per- formance which included faultless triple-lutyjump. Petfcevich, who missed on his attempt at a triple salcbow jump, turned away shaking his head after Cranston, skating last, brought the crowd to its feet. But both Cranston and Hamil- ton's Ron Shaver said they thought they had performed bet- ter at the Canadian champion- ships two weeks ago in Winni- peg- Shaver, sixth in the compul- sory figures Thursday, also puled himself up with his free- skating, dropping Bonenfant to last spot. The Vancouver skater ap- peared nervous and twice nearly fell attempting simple jumps before finaly taking a spill. RANKINUS THE SAME The rankings in dance clas remained unchanged from thost set Thursday after the compu sory dances. The three U.S an champion couple as being in a class by themselves." Jim Slaky and Judy Schwom- yer from Wilmington, Del., are ie U.S. champions and the lead they built up after the compul- sory and set-pattern dances which count toward two-thirds f the total mark, make them Imost certain winners of thi itle which will be declared fol owing the free-skating today. The finals of the dance follov the free-skating to women's sin jles competition where Karei ilagnusen of Vancouver, lead ing after the figures Friday was favored to win the titl from U.S. champion Jane teams, ai coached by Ron Lu dington, easily outclased th Canadians and numerous ska ing officials from both sides t the border spoke of the Amen y Los Angeles Kings from Cali- ornia.

SK1-DOQS STILL AVAILABLE FROM YOUR LOCAL DEALER 5arent }lay with joyliood idol By THE CANADIAN PRESS When Bernie Parent began (laying hockey at the age of 11 jn a pair of second-hand skates, iis ambition was to play for ilontreal Canadiens in the Na ional Hockey League. Now, Parent, newest member of Toronto Maple Leafs, says iis greatest pleasure is helping to defeat the Habitants. "Jacques Plante was my fa vorite and Montreal was th( team I wanted to play re calls the goaltender, who wa part of a three-team deal this week that brought him to To ronto from Philadelphia Flyer while Mike Walton ended u with Boston Bruins. "When I realized I would no hn a Canadien, I decided Ih best tiling would be to help di feat says the 25year-o! Montreal native. "I enjoy tha very much." IDOLIZED PLANTE Parent can also derive sure from the fact that he'll be playing future games with his boyhood idol. "He (Planted has 15 years on me. y'know. There's a lot of things you learn in 15 years, y'know. "I'll be asking about the re- always in position to handle the rebound, he gives always good rebounds, ami li? stands on the right spot. Ah, there's lots of things." Parent will be able to study Plante's style tonight when Toronto plays host, to Philadel- phia, tonight in one of five scheduled NHL games. HAVE SKATED BETTER Miss Starbuck said they have skated better than they did Fri- day. "It was one of our best per- formances, but we couldn't make it tops because of the let- down after the American nation- als just last week at Buffalo. "There's always a big letdown after a national championship and it's difficult getting back up for something like this so soon after." Miss Starbuck, who studies art and drama at the same uni- versity with Shelley, says they divide their time about equally between studying and skating. She spends some of her time taking ballet lessons as well, and while she's dancing, Shelley practises his singles figures. Shelley, the only competitor here who skates in two classes, pulled himself up with a strong free-skating performance t o take third in the men's singles behind Cranston. SHAVER FIFTH He pushed Gord McKellen of Lake Placid, N.Y., back to fourth spot with Ron Shaver of Hamilton fifth and Paul Bonen- ant of Vancouver last. The Bezics, who had placed a ose third to the Militanos in ompulsory figures, failed to ain ground with their free-skat- ig_ "But what the said 17- ar-old Val. "We were sixth wo years ago and now we're lird. "Give us two more years anc e'll be first. We're both young and we've got plenty of time 'et." His sister, Sandra, is 14.
