The Dutch official said it was not yet known when IOC presi- dent Lord Killain Would meet Roger Rousseau, president of- the Cana- dian Olympic Organiz- ing Committee, to dis- cuss the troubled state of preparations for the Games. After a meeting in Amsterdam last week between Lord Killain and the IOC's Canadian representative, Jim Worrall of Toronto, there was speculation that. Rousseau would report on progress in Amsterdam Wednes- day. But van Karnebeek said Rousseau was still engaged in talks with Quebec provincial authorities and did not know whether he would come to Europe before the scheduled meeting of the IOC executive and the Canadian com- mittee in Lausanne, Switzerland, Feb. 20. "The problem in Montreal is not really the finance, but the stadium whether they can build on time. We are keeping our fingers van Karnebeek said. The Montreal organizers have faced construction workers strikes in recent months as well as escalating costs and are engaged in discussions with local authorities on which Rousseau is to report to the IOC.

Reports from Stockholm said Wednesday the Soviets and Canada had agreed on a world hockey championship open to professionals. But the National Hockey League denied knowledge of such an agreement and the NHL Players' Association said it wasn't interested. The Stockholm reports ap- peared to be a feeler put out by the Soviets. Press reports in Stockholm quoted Ove Rainer, president of the Swedish Ice Hockey Association, as saying he was told of the Canada-Soviet agreement by sports attache Ivars Kespers at the Soviet embassy. Canada pulled out of the world championships in 1970 after the International Ice Hockey Federation (IIHF) re- fused Canada's request to use professionals. Earl Dawson of Winnipeg, president of the Canadian Amateur Hockey Association (CAHA) at the time of the 1970 pull-out, said Wednesday he was elated at the flews from Stockholm. But few others shared his feelings. Alan Eagieson of Toronto, executive director of the NHL Players' Association, said that if the idea is to open the current world amateur cham- pionship to pros, "we're not interested." Eagieson, who along with Father David Bauer, former national team coach and man- ager, has been looking into the possibility of Canada return- ing to international com- petition, said: "I understand there is a movement afoot by the IIHF that would result in Canada being able to use pros in the Bunny Ahearne tournament. We're not interested. Our best players would not be available at that time (the end of March or early It is my ambition to see a World Cup with Canada as the host country in 1976. An invitation would be extended to the top five or six the Soviet Union, Czechpslovakia, ..Sweden, Finland, the United States and West Germany. "We're not interested in anything else. We just want to make our own deal with an- other country. Our govern- ment is interested in the same thing; our best against their best at a time that's suitable to In Montreal, a spokesman for NHL president Clarence Campbell, said: "As far as the NHL is concerned the story is completely without foun- dation." Gordon Juckes, CAHA ex- ecutive director, said in Ot- tawa there has been a general endorsement of the use of hockey professionals during formal talks last June. Since then, he said, there have been informal discussions with en- couraging results. Meanwhile, IIHF president John (Bunny) Ahearne, said in London he was surprised at the Stockholm report and warned there might be dif- ficulties for supporters of such a tournament. "Looking at it quite coldly, the idea would hold no advan< tage for 24 of our said Ahearne. "There are only two countries with professional Short sport BARLOW SENT DOWN PHOENIX, Ariz.
