But he still made an auspicious Detroit debut Wednesday night. McKechnie, joining the Red Wings after a trade from Bos- ton the winning goal in Detroit's 4-3 upset over Philadelphia Flyers, defending Stanley Cup cham- It was only the fourth goal of the National Hockey League season for the Wings' new centre but he picked the right time for it, beating Flyers' goalie Bernie Parent on a power play midway in the final period to break a 3-3 tie. In other games, Chicago Black Hawks and New York Rangers tied 2-2, Atlanta Flames beat Minnesota North Stars 4-2, Toronto Maple Leafs tied California Seals 3-3 and Los Angeles Kings and Pittsburgh Penguins tied 2-2. There is no crisis says Jean Drapeau LAUSANNE Switzerland (AP) A Montreal Olympic of- ficial said today plans for the 1976 Games may be changed. Mayor Jean Drapeau of Montreal came out of a meeting with the executive of the International Olympic Committee (IOC) and said-. "The Games go on as But Roger Rosseau. commissioner general of the dames, tow reporters: "We are standing by our Vienna report, but with some modifications." He was referring to the plans for the Games as outlined to the IOC in Vienna last October. The Montreal delegation was grilled for three hours by the IOC executive on the delays in construction and the rise in the iwcr-all costs to million from million in four months. The meeting then broke up for lunch and was scheduled to reconvene later. Nobody would say what the modifications would be. Lord Killanin. IOC president, scheduled a news coherence with the Canadians for later in the day. Before the meeting started, Drapeau had told reporters there was no crisis over the Games and they would be made to pay for "Tliere'iuive always been problems over staging the Olympic (James." he said. "Every city that has staged them had its dif- ficulties. Our problem in Montreal are no more serious than anyone else's. "We are determined to prove that Montreal can stage the Games and that they can be made to pay for themselves. "The Olympics were always intended as a municipal respon- sibility. Government interference was never part of the Olym- pic conception. If we can not prove our point, it will be a serious mutter for the whole future of the Games." The Montreal delegation is headed by Drapeau and Roger Hmisseaii, commissioner general of the 1976 Games. Four salaried executives of the Montreal organizing committee have been in Lausanne for the last week for preliminary talks with Monique Berlioux, IOC director, and Henry Banks, the technical director.

New York claimed him in the intra-league draft and then traded him to the Bruins for Derek Sanderson. Arriving at Detroit after the trade that sent rookies Hank Nowak and Earl Anderson to the Bruins, he promptly bailed the Red Wings out of a three- game losing streak. After the game, in which McKechnie also earned an as- sist, he passed out cigars In the Detroit dressing room and recalled how he had seen little action in Boston, earning only three goals and three assists. "It's hard to just step in when you're not in shape because you haven't been said McKechnie who last year finished his best NHL season with 23 goals and 29 assists. Flyers' captain Bobby Clarke set up the Detroit vic- tory when he was called for high sticking, thus wiping out a goal by teammate Reggie Leach and providing the Wings with a power play. Dennis Hull's unassisted goal early in the third period gave Chicago the tie at New York. Inge Hammarstrom scored early in the third period to complete Toronto's three-goal comeback against the Seals. DETROIT 4 PHILADELPHIA 3 No scoring.

Turner has spent the past nine years in amateur boxing rings throughout Canada and the United States, compil- ing a 34-9 won-loss record along the way. The 203-pound slugger, down from the 233 pounds he was carrying six months ago, has been ranked as the se- cond best heavyweight in Canada for the past six or seven years. For years he labored in the shadow of Carroll Morgan from Nova Scotia, the heavyweight who captured the fancy of many boxing fans at the Olympic Games, and has always seemed to have bad luck when it comes down to the. Canadian finals. At the last Winter Games boxing ses- sion in Saskatoon Turner looked like a sure winner until he suffered an eight- stitch gash as the result of a freak headbutting accident with eventual winner Jack Meda in the final bout for the Gold medal. Turner is an electrician by trade in Winnipeg and is 28 years of age. His goals in boxing? "First of all to he laughingly stated. "Seriously though, I'd like to win a Canadian championship. It would real- ly be great, and secondly I'd like to do justice to the people who have spent so much time working with me over the years. In the Winter Games boxing, which continues tomorrow at the Exhibition Pavilion in Lethbridge after com- pleting a two-day stand at Claresholm, Bill's first opponent will be a heavy puncher from Nova Scotia, Calvin Lawrence. "Lawrence is a dangerous puncher. He throws them from all angles. I'd say he and the B.C. and Prince Edward Island heavyweights will be tough men to get by. Professional boxing was once a good possibility for Turner but it looks like that opportunity has passed him by. "I don't think I'll be turning pro, not now. I had three offers a few years back but the money wasn't quite enough and now it may he just a little too late." Another problem Turner has concerning turning professional, and BILL TURNER even in continuing as an amateur box- er, is the lack of sparring partners in the Winnipeg area, "I've even advertis- ed in the newspaper to get sparring partners, but with very little he said. Win or lose in the Winter Games, Bill Turner adds a dimension to the boxing that few other boxers add.'He is a colorful, likeable person out of the ring and in the ring he is a crowd-pleasing power puncher who always gives his best. Rules set down for expansion NEW YORK (CP) The National Hockey League's ex- pansion committee announced Wednesday the set of con- ditions that would allow Seat- tle and Denver to play in the NHL next season. Vincent Abbey, president of Seattle Totems Hockey Club, met with the expansion com- mittee here and was granted a seven day extension to come up with million to gain entry into the league a year earlier. Abbey heads a Seattle syn- dicate which was granted a conditional franchise for the 1976-77 season. The expansion committee, whose chairman is Bill Jen- nings, president of New York Rangers, said in a statement that it agreed to extend the Seattle deadline to 5 p.m. EOT, Wednesday, Feb. 26. But the committee said no further extension would be considered. The statement said Abbey must implement in one week his previous offer to the league for a franchise for the 1975-76 season. "This offer, which must be accompanied by a million letter of credit to the order of the league, is for Seattle to accept whichever one of the following three alternatives as shall be determined by the league prior to May 16, 1875: "1. Purchase of the California Golden Seals Hockey Club or, "2. Purchase of the Pitt-, sburgh Penguins Hockey Club or, "3. A 1975-76 season expan- sion team." The expansion committee also established the same Feb. 26 deadline for the Denver Spurs hockey team to implement its previous offer for an NHL team next season. The statement said: "This offer, also to be accompanied by a million letter of credit, is for Denver to accept whichever one of the two following alternatives as shall be determined by the NHL prior to May 16: "1. Purchase of the Califor- nia Golden Seals Hockey Club or, "2. A 1975-76 expansion team." The next meeting of the NHL's board of governors is scheduled in New York March 10. Thad Potter, president of the Penguins who insists that the team will not leave Pitt- sburgh, has been trying to sell a 20-per-cent interest in the club to bring in fresh capital. The Penguins 'also are reported in debt to the NHL. The Golden Seals, taken over by the league last season after agreement to buy out former owner Charles Finley for million, are draining the NHL of funds. Denver also has a con- ditional franchise for the 1976- 77 season. But like Seattle, it wants to start a year earlier because the arenas are available for NHL hockey.

Lower Level 7th Street Shopping Mall Lelhbrldge, tf Phone (403) 32B-7411 ADDING MACHINES Islanders lead with 6-2 record CALGARY (CP) Three rounds remain in the Cana- dian senior men's curling championship and the key to victory rests in the hands of 1971 champion Wendell MacDonald of Charlottetown. The 66-year-old Prince Ed- ward Island skip and his 64- year-old vice-skip, John Squa- rebriggs, have more national curling championship ex- perience between them than the other 46 players in the 1975 championship. And that experience has paid off to give P.E.I, a 6-2 record Wednesday after 10 rounds. Saskatchewan and New Brunswick share 6-3 records. MacDonald has appeared in 10 national seniors champion- ships and three Briers while Squarebriggs has played in nine senior and five Brier competitions. The P.E.I, team has the old- est average age of the 12 com- peting rinks but that may no longer be a factor with only two matches remaining today and one Friday, barring playoffs. The Islanders still have to play Quebec's Glen Adarns the Territories' Herb Taylor (5-3) and Manitoba's Lyle Henry MacDonald won his only start Wednesday, a come- from-behind 10-9 decision over No money, soccer coach is laid off TORONTO (CP) John McMahon, manager of Canada's national soccer team and principal spokesman in international soccer, has been dropped. "I've been laid off due to a lack of McMahon said Wednesday. "The Canadian Soccer Association simply didn't have the money." The Scottish born manager said the federal government, which last year provided for the complete CSA program, has not completed its grants yet, including those of the national team. "My deal was a one year deal which ran out Feb. said McMahon. "It's no big thing, really. The reason my contract has not been renewed is that we do not have a team in being at the moment." He said a program of inter- national matches leading to the 1976 Olympic Games in Montreal would go on as planned. the defending champion British Columbia represen- tative Ron McPhee Of Kimberley. McPhee had the Islanders down 8-4 after seven ends in round nine but MacDohald's tactics earned him a tying four points in the eighth. B.C. took one in the ninth but McPhee found himself looking at another four P.E.I rocks in the 10th and he was unable to cut down the count sufficient- ly with' either of his shots to avert defeat. Northern Ontario's Jim Simpson of Thunder Bay, tied for the lead heading into Wednesday's rounds, lost two in a row. Simpson yielded points on only three ends to New Brunswick's Ken Melvin in round nine but there was a lour and five involved and Melvin's third trip to the Scoreboard was to post the de- ciding point in the 10th end for a 10-9 win. In round 10. Simpson fell behind early to Nova Scotia's Lawrence Carter and bowed 8-4. Saskatchewan's Morrie Thompson whipped New- foundland's Royal Cooper 8-1 and Alberta's fading Del Mclntyre 11-5. Melvin's se- cond win Wednesday also was at the expense of the winless rink from Gander. 15-4.
