That was the comment from a woman security officer on duty in the athletes village of the Canada Whiter-Games set up in an unused department store. The boys are on flie upper floors and girls on the main floor. Athletes began moving in Thursday and %yitbin a couple of hours of the first arrivals the security officer had to shoo some of the Quebec boys out of girls' trailers. The trailers, some rented and some donated by a local dealer, are used for girls' headquarters and are strictly out of bounds to boys. Similarly, tents on the second and third floors which bouse the boys are off limits to girls. Jim Miley, superintendent of the village, said he moved two girls from the tents, but "these are mainly young kids and we don't expect any hanky panky." However, just to make sure no problems of fraternization arise, security officers are posted on each floor on a 24- hour-a-day basis. In all there are 110 campers and trailers, truck sleeping two and some three. Additionally, washers and dryers, irons and a sewing serv- ice are offered free to the girls. Upstairs, there are 180 tents, some on loan from the armed forces and others from commer- cial outlets. When all the athletes arrive, probably sometime today, there Rookie more excited about Beliveau's goal will be 980 housed in the village with the overflow scattered about the city in nurses resi- dences and colleges. A total of athletes will take part in 16 sports. Basket- ball starts the Games today al- though they won't be opened of- ficially by Prime Minister Tru- deau until tonight. They end Sunday, Feb. 21.

APPOINTMENT By THE CANADIAN PRESS The 22-year-old rookie who set up Jean Beliveau's 500th Na- tional Hockey League goal was more excited about the historic mark than Beliveau himself. "When I was a kid I had Beli- veau and Frank Mahovh'ch for my said Phil Roberto. "I never dreamed I'd ever get to play on a line with them. And, as for assisting on Jean's 500th goal, it's just too much. But it's terrific." Roberto's drop-pass set up the Montreal Canadiens' team cap- tain for his 500th career goa and third of the game for a 6-: Montreal win over Minnesota North Stars Thursday night.

Tliis story not f luiny DELTA, B.C. (CP) Hocke) is a tough game to referee even at the amateur level. Mar vin McLeod, 34, of DelU learned it the hard way Wed nesday. McLeod told police he wa refereeing an amateur game i his community south of Van couver when he penalized Burnaby player in the secon period. The player, enraged, punche McLeod twice, and McLeo called an end to the game. He said the player foUowe him into the referees' room an again attacked him. McLeo sought refuge in an arena o [ice, but was again chased an struck. Finally, he managed to ma Ills way back to the referee room where he took shelter b hind a locked door until t player left the building. I No charges were laid. In the only other game, Eddie estfall got three goals to lead oston Bruins in a 5-3 victory er St. Louis Blues. MVEAU CALM Beliveau was much less ec- tatic than the rookie right inger from Niagara Falls, Ont. "Well, of course, I knew that was getting close to the 500 said the 39-year-old vet- an who is playing in his 18th season. "But I honestly didn't think uch about it until I got my second goal of the game, which lade my total count 499." Left winger Frank Mahoylich Iso was happy to have assisted n Beliveau's big score. "I'm getting pretty good a yetting up these career aid the Big M. "I also assisted n Gordie Howe's 700th goa I played with him in De troit." Mahovlich could be the nex player to join the exclusive 600 ;oal club. Beliveau became onlj he fourth member. Howe, former Canadiens sta Maurice (Rocket) Richard, am iobby Hull of Chicago Blac lawks are the other players t have reached the plateau. Mahovlich and Norm Ullman of Toronto Maple Leafs, each with career totals of 410 and Alex Delvecchio of Detroit Red Wings with 409, are the nearest to making 500. Mahovlich also picked u p a goal Thursday night, his 20th of the season, and the Canadiens got steady goaltending from Ro- gatien Vachon who stopped a penalty shot by Minnesota's Jude Drouin. The North Stars were awarded the shot by referee Dave Newell after defenceman Jacques Laperriere grabbed the puck in his own goal crease. John Ferguson and J.C Tremblay got the other Mont real goals and Bill Goldsworthy cored twice for Minnesota. The Blues held Boston to a 2-2 tie after two periods at St. Louis before Westfall broke into the clear for the second of his three ;oals at of the final period. !e scored his third less than ive minutes later and Ken lodge got another to sew up the Jrums' victory.
