Poiioka refused request RED DEER (CP) The Al- berta Junior Hockey an- nounced Tuesday it lias refused a request by Ponoka Stamped- ers for a further one year leave of absence. Ponoka was granted ia year's leave of absence following the season to recover a def- icit of approximately it incurred over four years of op- crr.tion in the league. League president Jim Kcoular of Calgary said favorable con- sideration of the request would leave the league in a picidiar position regarding pcssiliSe ex- p-insioii for the 1972-7i sea- son. "The Ponoka organization also has some internal probleros we u'ould like lo see ironed c.1i! be- fore can consider the pos- sible return of Ponoka to the league."

"But they were looking to the Czech game tomorrow (Thurs- day) night, just as the Czechs were looking to games with Sweden and Russia when they played the United Slates Mon- day." The Czechs, who are in sec- ond place with a 2-1 won-Iost mark, swamped Poland 14-1 Saturday, lost to the U.S. 5-1 Monday and upended Finland 7-1 Tuesday. Famose faces trouble SAPPORO, Japan (AP) Marc Hodler, president of the International Ski Federation, said today veteran French skier Annie Famose had been sus- pended and given a deadline h present evidence she did nol cn- Caje in commercial aciivily. "If she cannot supply such proof, she will remain sus- pended Hodler said, The time limit is 2 p.m. Thursday Japan time (midnight tonight The other skier who was in- vestigated by the FIS, Hodler added, was the French ace Pat- rick Russel. The cases against both, he said, result from advertise- ments in French newspapers that they would work for a radio and television station dur- ing the Sapporo Games. Hcdler said one reason why no decision would be made here in tile case of Russel was the absence of the skier from the Games. Russel broke a leg in a giant slalom race in West Ger- many a few weeks ago. Hodler noted that no judg- ment would be made against Miss Famose without giving her a chance to defend herself or agaiast Russel in his absence. FINISHED EIGHTH The International Olympic Committee had been widely criticized for banning Austria's Karl Schranz from the Olympics without giving him a hearing. Miss Famose finished eighth in the women's downhill here. Hodler said he had withheld the names because he wanted the two skiers to have a chance to present a defence to the FIS board before their names were published. "However, since the news is out he added, referring lo reports quoting him as saying that Famose had been "disqualified'' hy the FIS, "I had lo change my stand." "I regret this." Hiss Famose was not avail- able for comment. She was with the French team in the Olympic Village. She was not entered in the giant slatom, and was nol scheduled lo enter Ihe conclud- ing woman's race, the slalom. The Sapporo Games are her third Olympics.

Karen Magnussen's silver medal in the women's figure skating and a fourth place by Laurie Kreiner in the women's giant slalom are Ihe only plac- ins high enough so far to earn points for the Canadian team. The Vancouver skater picked up five poinls and the Timmins, Ont., skier three. Fifteen events remain of the 35 on the pro- gram. Miss Koulakova, the fabu- lously strong Russian winner of Hie 10-kilometre cross-country gold medal, added the five-kilo- metre title today with a strong finishing burst. The 29-year-old world five-kilo- metre champion covered the distance of 3.1 miles in 17 min- utes and one-half five seconds ahead of Finland's 34-year-old bronze winner in the 10 kilometres.

"But our program should have put us higher than that. Tile difference lies in over- seas competition and our Euro- pean trip was cancelled just be- fore Christmas." The Canadian team was scheduled to compete in Scandi- navia, but a month before its departure was informed that the budget had been cut, partly be- cause of lower government grants than expected and partly because of lower-than-expectcd results from fund-raising.
