Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - February 22, 1971, Lethbridge, Alberta THI liTHWIDGI HEUALD Monday, 52. Eastern teams refuse to play Memorial Cup unlikely MEDAL WINNERS Referee checks to see if Tim Wenzel, (wearing lelmet) of Ontario has pinned Allen Mcluskie of Quebec during the wrestling finals at the Canada Winter Games Sunday. Wenzel won thfl Winter Games end at Saskatoon gold medal and Mcluskie the Bronze. Ontario was awarded the Games flag Sunday evening. mountain remains to help remember CALGARY (CP) A Na- tional final in Junior Hockey to decide the winner of the Mem- orial Cup is unlikely this year, says the vice-president of the Canadian Amateur Hockey As- sociation. Joe Kryczka said Friday that despite pressure from the CAHA and the NHL the first- level junior leagues in Ontario and Quebec have refused to play the Western representa- tive. The west is represented by the Western Canada Hockey League which allows five play- ers on each team over the age limit set by the CAHA and ob- served by the Ontario Hockey Association Junior A series and the Quebec Junior Hockey League. Kryczka said the eastern teams refuse to compete in the final because of over-age play- ers but regulation may be changed requiring them to com- pete in future years. The CAHA has its annual meeting in May at Thunder Bay, Ont., and could "make It mandatory that if they're going to receive development money from the NHL they must com- pete in the national final." The Memorial Cup now is held by Montreal Junior Cana- diens, Kryczka said. "It's a challenge trophy and if a club challenges the club that happens to have it at thai time but they refuse to meel the challenge, they must give it up. It has happened In the past."

SASKATOON (CP) The second Canada 'Winter Games ended Sunday, leaving a moun- tain on the flat prairie as .a lasting legacy and showing that western hospitality in- cludes near-perfect weather. Long-underwear weather of a normal Saskatchewan winter never materialized during the 10-day spectacle. Average tem- perature was 21.4 which brought together more than athletes from 10 provinces and two territories to compete in 16 sports. Officials were still counting tickets but they confidentially predicted that attendance would top at the Games which cost million to stage. Of the total, went to building Mount Blackstrap, 25 miles south of the city. Besides the 300-foot moun- tain, which became a Games symbol, a three-storey department store filled with tents and trailers to house athletes was another unique feature. While older competitors found it difficult to sleep in the village because of the noise, the kids had a ball. Ontario athletes, with red and- white uniforms, dominated competition as they did at the fust Winter Games in Quebec City in 1967. But tiny Prince Edward Island got a share of the glory, being named winner of the Centennial Trophy, awarded for the first time to the province which shows the improvement from the previous Games. Gov.'-Gen. Roland Michener closed the Games Sunday before a packed house at the seat Saskatoon Arena. The Games had been opened by Prime Minister Trudeau.
