Hewitt, of tlic t^au-adian Amateur Hockey A.ssociation,j no formal challenge tor the Allan! Cup, emblematic of the National! Championship, lias been received to I dat?. 'i"he Thunder Bay League has marie some innuiries concerning a series for the trophy, and will doubtless send a challenge at an early date. Cluiliengers are also expected from the Saskatehewan, Manitoba and Ontiurio Associations. It is more than probable that the builder Bay, Manitoba and Sas-j katcliewaii winners will be ordered to play olT, the survivors to meet the Ontario champions in the finals. No other arrangement seems po.ssible atj this date. There are sixteen teams im tlK' senior scries of the O.Il.A. this; season, from Sarnia in the west to: Cornwall in the cast. None of the four groups have declared a champion as yet, and it will probably be comparatively late in tlie seasoli when the semi-finals and li'nals are played. There was a suggestion early in'the season to suspend competition for the Allan Cup until after the war. The trustees decided, however, tiiat as several worthy cliarities were an- ual beneficiaries oi the competition, it would not be advisable to take the trophy out of play, especially as so many of the charitable institulions which benefit in a financial -way caCh year may be more or less overlooked by the public in view of the many demands for assistance on the part o'f the various patriotic funds.
