After six rounds of play at the University of Lethbridge, only Quebec and British Columbia are unbeaten. The Quebec team, which was not expected to be a strong competitor in this Games event, has surprised everyone with its impressive showing. Quebec has compiled an im- pressive 6-0 record which has' only been matched by the defending champion B.C. team. However, Quebec holds a slight edge in play as they have already faced Alberta and Ontario, two of the four pre-tournament favorites. B.C., a pre-tourney favorite along with Manitoba, has yet to play any of these top clubs and must now" also reckon with Quebec. B.C.'s coach, Abdhl Shailcn, is well aware of his team's long road ahead, but doesn't seem too worried. "I can only say we have a 50-50 chance to win since we haven't played the stronger teams said Shaikh. "I'll know a little more after we play one of the stronger teams and can then evaluate the whole he added. Alberta's manager, Ed Martyna, agreed with Shailch's comments, but add- ed that it would be extremely difficult for B.C. to go un- defeated, still having to face the top clubs in its final four rounds. The west coast club was ex- pected to down Saskatchewan this morning, but should be having its hands with Manitoba this afternoon. Meanwhile in Thursday's round robin action, Quebec beat Ontario 7-2 in its opening match and blanked Northwest Territories 9-0 in its second. B.C., on the other hand, earned a pair of 8-1 decisions over Nova Scotia and New Brunswick. Alberta and Manitoba also scored two easy wins and sport identical 5-1 records in second place. Alberta took 9-0 wins over Yukon and Prince Edward Island while Manitoba defeated Northwest Territories 9-0 and New- foundland 8-1. In other games during the day, Saskatchewan defeated Prince Edward Island 7-2, On- tario defeated Yukon 9-0, New Brunswick defeated New- foundland 8-1 and Nova Scotia dropped a 7-2 verdict to Saskatchewan.

Phone 327-1501 LOS ANGELES (AP) -Ka- thy Donins made a Valen- tine's Day appeal that her husband, Janis of track and field fame, be allowed to leave the Soviet Union. Mrs. Donins, 25, of Palos Verdes, Calif., asked that her 28-year-old spouse be allowed to join her and daughter Ni- cole, who will be two years old Tuesday. Donins was a top javelin thrower and would have been a favorite in the 1972 Olympic Games had it not been for his marriage to Kathleen Keefe. The couple had planned to wed fn the late summer of 1972, but the Soviets told her that if Janis intended to com- pete in the Olympics, they would have to marry before the competition, she said. They married Jan. 12, 1972, but Janis suddenly discovered he no longer was an athlete and his relatives were ha- rassed, Mrs. Donins said. "They forced us to get mar- ried before we wanted said Mrs. Donins, 25. "Then, for no reason, he was not on the Soviet Olympic team. He certainly would have won a medal if he had gone, but they took away his foreign travel permit." She said Janis was officially a member of the army. "But in reality he was a professional athlete.

A year later she visited his home in Riga, Latvia. The next summer he com- peted with the Soviet team in Berkeley, Calif., and beat world record holder Janis Lusis with a throw of 293 feet one inch. That earned him No. 2 ranking among javelin throwers, only 11 months be- fore the Olympics. "One day after my mar- riage I was called into a gov- ernment office and told I had to fill out a citizenship appli- she said. Mrs. Donins said she never intended to become a Soviet citizen but applied "to ap- pease them, to give me time to get us out." She flew home last June, hoping.that arranging for her husband to leave would be easier in the United States.

Hull gets 50th in 50 games By GLENN COLE The, Canadian Press Back in the 1944-45 National Hockey League season Maurice (Rocket) Richard scored his 50th goal in the 50th and final game of that season. Since then, players in both the NHL and the rival World Hockey Association have at- tempted to equal the feat by the Montreal Canadiens winger. No one in the NHL has done it yet, but Friday night someone in the three-year-old WHA did. Bobby Hull, the Golden Jet of Winnipeg Jets, matched Richard's effort with his third goal of the game at of the third period as the Jets downed Houston Aeros 5-3 in one of five games. In other action, Quebec Nor- diques topped Minnesota Fighting Saints 7-3, Edmonton Oilers outscored Toros 8-4, New England Whalers edged Indianapolis Racers 4-3 and Cleveland Crusaders nipped San Diego Mariners 3-2. At Winnipeg, a crowd of 418 littered the ice with debris after Hull took a pass from Ulf Nilsson and rifled a waist- high shot from 25 feet out that deflected off goaltender Ron Grahame and fell into the net. "This has to rank.as one of my greatest said Hull. "But I have to give a lot of credit to my linemates Ulf Nilsson and Anders Hedberg. We played as a unit all year long. If it hadn'tbeen for them, I wouldn't have been able to do it." Hull, 37, and a veteran of 18 NHL and WHA seasons, said the return of Rudy Pilous to full-time coach allowed him to concentrate more on his play- ing and relieved him of the burdensome role of player coach. Pilous, who coached Hull when he played for Chicago Black Hawks of the NHL, said it was particularly gratifying to return as coach the night Hull had a chance to equal the 30-year-old record. "It's a very momentous occasion for me. I coached him when he scored his first 50 goals." Steve Sutherland fired three goals and Serge Bernier added four assists as the Nordiques continued their improved road play and increased their lead in the Canadian Division with their win at Minnesota. Quebec now leads second- place Toronto by eight points in their section. Bobby Sheehan and Mike Rogers scored two goals apiece as the Oilers came from behind to top the Toros before fans. Tom Gilmore, Rusty Pate- naude, Bruce MacGregor and Murray Kennett scored the other Edmonton goals with Richard Farda, Frank Mahov- lich, Tony Featherstone and Rick Cunnigham replying for Toronto. At Hartford, Conn., Tom Webster's 27th goal of the year at of the sudden- death overtime gave the Whalers their win over the Racers before fans. Goals by Ron Ward, Skip Krake and Al McDonough gave Cleveland its win over San Diego. Rick Sentes and Andre Lacroix replied for the Mariners. Tonight, the Jets are at home to Cleveland and Baltimore Blades entertain Chicago Cougars. Sunday, Minnesota plays host to San Diego, Phoenix Roadrunners visit Edmonton, Vancouver Blazers are at home to the Toros and Winnipeg goes to Chicago. Pronghorns thumped EDMONTON (Special) The University of Alberta Golden Bears completely dominated the backboards Friday night as they thumped the University of Lethbridge Pronghorns 115-76 in Canada West men's basketball action. Doug Baker piled up 22 points while Bill Hamilton added 20 and Wally Tollestrup had 15 for the Bears, who built up a 54-34 lead by halftime. Lauren Edlund paced the Lethbridge attack with 21 points while Phil Letham add- ed 18. Richard Foggo chipped in with 15 points and Roger Baldry had 12. Alberta shot 50% from the floor while the Pronghorns could manage only But the big difference was on the backboards, where the Bears snatched 59 rebounds to only 27 for the Pronghorns.
