But the International Olympic Com- mittee (IOC) will be keeping a closer watch on the city's planning from now until next year's Games. IOC President Lord Killanin plans to go to Montreal in April to make a personal check on progress the main stadium and swimm- ing pool, now several months behind schedule because of labor strikes. After that, the IOC will send someone once a month to keep an eye on things. That is the chief outcome of the crisis that has been threat- ening the Montreal Olympics. Canadians attending the IOC executive meeting here are trying to dismiss it as "the crisis that never was." Plans for the Games are un- changed. Killanin said tie was confident the building will be completed in ample time for the Olympics to open on schedule July 17, 1976. But the IOC's plan to keep such a strict watch on Montreal during the next 18 months is unprecedented. It was a clear sign that the IOC saw the situation as serious, although no one will admit that the Games were ever in any real danger. Last month, the Canadian Olympic Association told the Montreal Organizing Com- mittee it must decide once and for all whether it was go- ing ahead with the Olympics. "That ultimatum was un- said Roger Rousseau, Canada's com- missioner general for the Games. "The association was over anxious. We never had any thought of giving up the Games, although I admit we did have doubts at one time that we could stage them ex- actly as we had planned. The Games budget, es- timated last year at million, has since increased to million and no one from Montreal has spelled-out ex- actly how the extra (300 million is going to be met, But Rousseau, former Canadian ambassador to the Cam- eroons, said the worries of the last two months have only served to bring the Canadians and the IOC close together. The IOC executive, after lis- tening to a point-by-point analysis of the organizing committee's problems Thur- sday, accepted Montreal's assurance that everything will be ready on time.

Toronto made its bid Thurs- day for the 1976 championship game and Montreal officials were to make their proposal today before the league makes a choice. The CFL executive com- mittee approved Thursday 12 rule changes, including block- ing on punt returns and an op- tional two-point conversion, aimed at improving the enter- tainment value of the game. The new punt-return rule al- lows blocking above the waist outside the scrimmage zone, providing the opportunity for longer punt returns. Converts, previously re- stricted to a one-point place kick, now may also be worth two points if the ball is passed or run into the end zone. Another rule change will al- low a team which has had a field goal scored against it to demand the scoring team kick off from its own 35-yard line. Previously, the team scored upon could scrimmage from its 35-yard line or could kick off from its 35. The latter op- tion was seldom used. Other more-minor rule changes: a single point, the team scored against scrim- mages from its 35-yard line rather than the 25. a rough-play or un- necessary-roughness penalty, the offensive team will be awarded a first down in addi- tion to the yardage assessed against the defensive team. kicker making any move to pass the ball from a normal punting position will be considered a ball carrier and no longer protected by the rule which forbids contacting the kicker. a defending team inter- cepts in its end zone and the passing team is called for rough play, the penalty will be applied from the intercepting team's 10-yard line. a ball carrier is grounded and, in the judgment of an official, has no intention of advancing, the play will be called dead. the ball changes hands in the last three Lalonde firm on stand OTTAWA (CP) The federal government will block any new attempts by the World Football League (WFL) to establish a franchise in Toronto, a spokesman for Health Minister Marc Lalonde said Thursday. Chris Hemmeter, WFL president, said Tuesday there will be another attempt to es- tablish a team in Toronto. The spokesman said the government would take the steps needed to block expan- sion by the American league into Canada "should a crisis again arise." the government introduced a bill blocking entry of the WFL last year but it was not passed prior to the July elec- tion. Parliament had already stated its view on the issue by giving the bill its second read- ing, approval in principle. John F. Bassett of Toronto, who moyed his WFL team to Memphis, Tcnn., from Toronto because of govern- ment pressure, has said he would like to move the team back to Canada. minutes of either half, time will not start until the snap of the ball on the next play. ball will be declared dead, even if it is in bounds, when it is touched by a player who is out of bounds. The team touching the ball before it touched the out-of-bounds player will have possession. field goal will be good regardless of whether it is touched by a player of either team before it crosses the scrimmage line or is touched by a defending player after crossing the scrimmage line, providing the ball passes between the uprights over the cross bar. posts marking goaljines, sidelines and deadlines will be placed so that they are considered out of bounds. CFL commissioner Jake Gaudaur told a news conference most of the rule changes "were motivated to Arguments not convincing, gambling to stay illegal? WASHINGTON (AP) Charles Morin, chairman of the national gambling com- mission, said Thursday the arguments by representatives of the country's athletic organizations against legalized sports betting have not been convincing. Morin, a Washington lawyer, said however neither he nor the other commis- sion members have made any decision in their investigation of sports gambling in the United States. Witnesses representing professional and amateur sports testified during hearings by the commission that legalization of sports gambling would have dire effects on their games. "Their arguments are not convincing to said Morin. "They say they can live with illegal betting but not with legal bet- ting. Testimony received by the commission thus far has indicated the gambling dollar volume to range from billion estimated by Las Vegas handicapper Jimmy the Greek Snyder to billion estimated by the justice department to J100 billion es- timated by Kelso Sturgeon, author of Guide to Sports Betting. Morin said the commission has contracted with the University of Michigan to conduct what he described as the first extensive survey on sports wager- ing in the United States. "We hope they will provide us with who gambles, how much, where the money comes from, what the volume is, its link to organized he said. "No one has done this before. We will be fortunate if they get us the answer by the end of the year." The commission for the review of the national policy toward gambling, the 15 member panel's official name, will make its final report containing its recommen- dations on gambling to the president and Congress by October, 1976. It will hold hearings later on parimutuel betting, off track betting, organized crime and gambling and the social conse- quences of problem gambling. Clarence Campbell, president of the National Hockey League, Robert C. James, representing the National Collegiate Athletic Association, and George E. Killian, executive director of the National Junior College Athletic Association, continued on Thursday the line of witnesses opposed to legalizing sports gambling. "Gambling is not an intrinsic part of our sport and we cannot perceive where or how legalized gambling on the game of hockey, or any team sport for that matter, will be of any benefit to the said Campbell. "On the contrary, we can see where sports betting could do irreparable harm to our game. When you subordinate the entertainment aspect of a game in favor of a gambling interest, you have completely changed the nature of the sport." Campbell's views were similar to those expressed Wednesday, the first day of the hearings, by commissioners Pete Rozelle of the National Football League and Bowie Kuhn of professional baseball. Legal age is 18 Bassett TORONTO (CP) John F. Bassett, president of the World Hockey Association Toronto Toros, said Wednes- day that he will sign underage junior hockey players. He said after a meeting of the WHA owners in Las Vegas that under Canadian law anyone 18 years old has the right to earn a living. He said he would never agree to any contract with the Canadian Amateur Hockey Association (CAHA) that would prevent the WHA from signing 18-and 19-year-old players. "That is he said. "Eighteen is the legal age in Canada and no one can pre- vent a boy from making a liv- ing if he is good enough to play pro hockey." The CAHA has never had a contract with the WHA regarding the drafting of either underage players or graduating juniors. Its agreement with the Na- tional Hockey League has ex- pired and negotiations have been going on for some time with both leagues in an attempt to reach a new agreement. In reaction to Bassett's statement, CAHA president Jack Devine of Bellville, Ont., said: "NHL ard WHA representatives, along with with federal government of- ficials and the CAHA, have met and the understanding is the pros will not draft un- derage players (those under 20) in the future. "I have not heard he said. "Further meetings are planned with the pros. Other than that, I have no comment." Gordon Juckes, CAHA ex- ecutive director expressed surprise at the statement. "Many junior A hockey operators in Canada have been hurt badly by the loss of underage he said. "The pros seemed to unders- tand this, particularly Cana- dian teams. "WHA operators in the United States are worried about running into anti-trust laws in that country and have asked the Canadian govern- ment to make a statement about underage he said. Health Minister Marc La- londe, the federal minister re- sponsible for sport, has said the professional leagues should not sign underage players because it is detrimental to junior hockey. Bassett said the only way his club would refuse to sign underage players "is if the federal government changed the law."

Toronto has been the site of the Grey Cup game 39 times while Montreal has been the host only once and that may be part of Montreal's argu- ment today when the league considers where to hold the 1976 game. Sam Berger, president of Montreal Alouettes, has been lobbying for the Grey Cup to be played in Montreal, argu- ing that his club, plagued by poor attendance, needs the Cup game to help generate fan interest.
