Miss Schuba held first place in the 22-entry field with 336.8 points after two rounds of compulsory school figures, leaving Miss Magnussen of Canada in fourth place with 295.2. Second to Miss Schuba was Julie Lynn Holmes of the United States at 314.4 while Rita Tra-panese of Italy held down third spot with 302.8. Two more of the six school figures are scheduled for later today and the championships will be decided after a free-skating finale Saturday night. "I can't let her get ahead any further," said the 18-year-old Miss Magnussen about her Austrian rival during the first of the school figures. COULD COME BACK But experts here say that even if Miss Schuba builds up a sizable lead over the girl from Vancouver, Miss Magnussen can still come back with a formidable bid for top honors during the free-skating. Miss Magnussen, a widely-favored competitor after three previous tries for the title, was tipped as strong in the school figures along with her excellence in the free skating. As she concentrated on winning her first world title, two other Canadian girls-first-timer Dlarnie Hall of Toronto and Ruth Hutchinson of Vancouver -were 20th and 16th respectively after the initial two rounds. Miss Hutchinson emerged from this morning's slow-motion contest with 251.2 points while Miss Hall had 245.6. Despite Miss Schuba's fine performance in her strongest-rated speciality, Canadian team officials remained optimistic about Miss Magnussen's chances for victory.

Boccabella his pride and joy Doby extremely happy WEST PALM BEACH, Fla. (CP) - Larry Doby, the burly batting instructor for Montreal Expos, is particularly happy today over the improvement he has brought about in two players familiar to Montreal's Jarry Park fans. They are catcher John Boccabella and second baseman Gary Sutherland. Of the two, Boccabella Is Doby's pride and joy. The work with Sutherland is more recent, but Doby is confident it will show this season. Of course Doby has given personal attention to other regulars -catcher John Bateman, for example-either at the instructional league camp at Braden-ton, Fla., or at the regular spring training camp here. Unfortunately most of Demy's work remains hidden to Mont- real fans. But much of It will show eventually. Throughout the baseball season he toils tirelessly among the youngsters with the National League club's five minor league affiliates. Boccabella gladdened Doby's heart last season by boosting his batting average an impressive 164 points over his weak .105 average the previous season. WORKS HARD Sutherland, whose average dropped to .208 in 1970 from .239 in 1969, went to the instructional league camp for intensive work and has continued it at West Palm Beach. The first thing the former American League slugger does with all players-veterans and youngsters-is to give them an exact awareness of the strike zone. ANDY CAPP HEHi HEW HEM HEM H HEHf HEHi HEHi HEH, "You don't acquire that," Doby said. "You've got to be taught it and learn it to know just what's likely to happen when that ball is coining at you. "Then there is the use of hands. A batter must have quick hands-likea boxer, Many players use their bodies alone. That's not enough. Quick hands end body work must be co-ordinated or the batter will find himself in trouble." Two of the young players Doby is enthusiastic about are Terry Humphrey, a 21-year-old catcher, and Pepe Frias, a shortstop from the Dominican Republic, who will be 23 this summer. Frias was signed by the Expos as a free agent late in 1969 while with the Thetford Mines, Que., team of the Quebec Provincial League. Last season be was seat to Jacksonville, and, with Doby's help, surprisingly bit a solid .254. McNally signs big contract MIAMI, Fla. (AP) - The list of unsigned Baltimore Orioles diminished to seven Wednesday when one of Baltimore's pitching Big Three, Dave McNally, agreed to terms for an estimated $85,000. McNally, a 20-game winner in each of the last three years, and owner of a 66-26 record over that stretch, received "a sizeable raise," personnel < rector Harry Dalton announced. The 28  year  old southpaw earned a reported $65,000 last season when he posted a 24-9 mark in the regular season and tacked on two additional victories in the American League pennant playoff and the World Series.

But the blue-clad Canadian duo drew applause as they con fidently went through their intricate paces Wednesday night to a melange of music which began with a booming Brahams theme. By NICK FERRIS Canadian Press Staff Writer Montreal Canadiens took a solid step Wednesday towards ensuring that the first player picked in this summer's National Hockey League amateur draft ends up in their possession. The Canadiens, who own California's first pick through a previous trade dumped the Golden Seals 5-2, re-inforcing the Seal's chances of ending the season with the worst record and the right to choose first in the draft. In other NHL action, St. Louis Blues and Pittsburgh Penguins skated to a 5-5 tie. New York Rangers defeated Philadelphia Flyers 4-2 and Minnesota North Stars downed Los Angeles Kings 5-1. The reason Montreal might appear anxious that California get first choice could be Guy Lafleur. NOW HAS 110 GOALS The 20-year-old native of Thurso, Que., has an incredible 110 goals and 69 assists in 53 games this year with Quebec Remparts of the Quebec Junior Hockey League. While the Canadiens have several promising rookies, they lack one with the potential for superstar status of Gil Per-reault who has 30 goals and 25 assists in his first year with * Buffalo Sabres and is a leading contender for rookie-of-the-year honors. Veteran Jean Beliveau fired two power-play goals as the Canadiens romped to a 3-0 first period lead at Oakland. The Canadiens peppered 44 shots at California goalie Chris Worthy, 21 in the final period when they added two more goals, while Rogatien Vacfaon faced 22 drives in Montreal's net. Garry Unger, recently acquired from Detroit Red Wings, fired a pair of goals at Pittsburgh, including the tying marker, as the Blues twice blew one-goal leads. Carl Brewer, also acquired in the Detroit trade and playing in his first game this season, scored one goal. New York's win was their i first home victory against the Flyers since Oct. 16, 1968. In previous games in the stretch, the two clubs tied eight of 10 games with the Flyers winning the other two. The Rangers scored once in each of the first two periods and added two more in the final 20 minutes to break the hex. Doug Molins and Ted Hamp-son, both acquired this week in trades with Chicago Black Hawks and California, respectively, provided the one-two punch in Minnesota's win. Mohns scored Minnesota's first goal while Hampson set up the North Stars' next two.
