They must win that pool to get back into A Pool of Ihe 1973 world champi- onships. James Worrall, Canadian member of the International Olympic Committee, said he had done everything he could to bring Canada into the Olympic hockey tournament. "The ball is in Canada's Worrall said. "It is up lo the CAHA to make the next move. 'We tried, but we always came up against protocol. We were told the CAHA must go through the international feder- ation lo the IOC." Canada withdrew from inter- nal ional hockey Ln January, 1970, after Ihe otlwr five top teams in the world champion- ships reneged on a commitment to allow Canada to play nine professionals. The reason given at the time was that this would impair the amateur status of her opponents, particularly with an Olympics looming on the ho- rizon. Since thcji, Canada has re- turned on all levels below that of championships and Olympics. Worrall commented: "Natu- rally Canadians, with their hockey traditions, are not con- lent lo cnlcr a team Ihal does not truly represent Canada. "We have several hundred Canadian pro hockey players, and that means any strictly am- ateur team is a long way from the Canadian top bracket Canada won a silver figure- skating medal in Ihc Games which ended 11 days of competi- tion Sunday, the worst showing since 193G.
