Skip Bob Pickering, 38, from Avonlea has been to the national final six times and his vice-skip, Garnet Campbell, 44, is returning for a record 10th appearance. Pickering, Campbell and second Jack Keys, 43, have been together 11 years and lead Gary Ford, 31, joined the team five years ago. Despite all that experience, Duguid won his 1970 title with a last-rock takeout against the Saskatchewan foursome.

The national organization's constitution says the Professional Hockey Writers' Association is for men. Mrs. Fischler, whose husband Stan has been covering sports and other news in New York for 15 years, made application last October for associate membership. "Membership would give me admission to the press box and dressing rooms," said Shirley, who became a hockey writer after her marriage three years ago. However, she quickly disavowed any intention of invading dressing rooms, where hockey players usually receive the press in varying stages of undress, port of less than two feet provided the winning margin. Lying one and with the last rock coming home, the 62-year-old Char-lottetown radiologist drew right to the button for two and a 10-9 victory over Burley Townsend's Saskachewan rmk in a sudden-death final.

New Brunswick, skipped by Shirley Pilson, was 3-6 and Clare Purdy's Nova Scotia entry failed to gain a single victory. BEATEN TWICE It was Northern Ontario's inability to cope with the powerful Saskatchewan foursome that cost the easterners the championship. Skip Doug Smith and his Thunder Bay rink lost its only game in the 11-rink, round-robin tournament to Montgomery in the fourth round. Saskatchewan looked like a shoo-in in the five-day event until it ran into pesky Manitoba in the 10th round Friday. Montgomery lost a tight 7-6 decision and his unbeaten record, forcing the playoff. Montgomery, with his brother Jeff at second, third Don Des-pins, and lead Rocky Verboom, trailed 4-3 in the sudden-death final going into the sixth end, but Smith came up light on an attempted freeze and Saskatchewan blew the game wide open. Saskatchewan was lying three as Smith went to the back for his first shot. He drew into the eight-foot to lie one, which Greg Montgomery then took out to lie four. COUNTS FIVE After Smith missed his last shot, Montgomery drew to the four-foot to count five. In the seventh, Smith missed a takeout with his last rock and Saskatchewan stole one. The Thunder Bay boys bounced back with one in the eighth, Saskatchewan took one in the ninth, and after the leads threw in the 10th, Northern Ontario conceded. Montgomery's rink scored over 80 per cent, with Greg himself putting forth an almost flawless performance, placing stones at will. The Saskatchewan rink, along with New Brunswick, was the youngest at the competition. Jeff, who just turned 15, is the youngest. Rocky is 15, Don Des-pins is 16 and skip Greg just turned 17. Manitoba finished with a record of 8-2, British Columbia, Alberta and Quebec, 6-4, Ontario 4-6, New Brunswick, Nova Scotia and Newfoundland 2-8 and Prince Edward Island 1-9.

Bisons take one game lead WINNIPEG (CP) - University of Manitoba Bisons defeated University of British Columbia Thunderbirds 75-66 Friday night in the first game of a best-of-three Western Canada Intercollegiate Athletic Association Basketball final. Thunderbirds, defending Canadian Intercollegiate champions, jumped to an 11-4 lead after four minutes, but Bisons, paced by the shooting of forward Bob Town, took a 30-28 edge by the 14-minute mark and never looked back. Town scored a total of 28 points for the winners, who led 38-32 at the half, while Jon Gurban and Angus Burr added 15 each. Forward Jack Hoy collected 23 points for Thunderbirds, while Derek Sankey added 18. The two teams meet here in the second game tonight while a third game, if necessary, is scheduled for Monday. THE BASES ARE LOADED - WITH SNOW - Jarry Park, home of the Montreal Expos, is loaded with snow Friday, a wintry contrast to the team's spring training grounds at West Palm Beach, Fla.

(AP) - On the doorstep of golf's first double grand slam, Jack Nicklaus scoffs at claims he's over the hill at 31. "My peak's ahead," said Nicklaus. "I'm as hungry for my next major championship as I was for my first" Nickiaus fired Ms second straight three-under-par 69 Friday and led the 53rd Professional Golfers' Association Championship by two strokes with 36 holes to go. Nicklaus has already won three Masters tides, two U.S. and two British Open titles and the 1963 PGA championship. Another triumph in the PGA would top off the game's first double slam-not bad for a fellow Sam Snead said would "burn himself out at an early age." Two shots behind Nicklaus at the PGA's 36-hole mark was Texan Miller Barber, who shot 68 Friday for a 140 total on the 7,096-yard PGA National Club course. Gibby Gilbert, from nearby Hollywood, Fla., shot the tournament's lowest round with 67 to move three under par at 143. SHOOTS 68 Bob Murphy birdied the first five holes Friday before settling down en route to a 68 that left the former U.S. amateur king at 142, four behind the Nicklaus pace. Tied with Murphy at 142 were Larry Ziegler, Tom Wekskopf, Bob Lunn, Australian Bruce Devlin, unknown club pro Gene Borek of East Norwich, N.Y., and Lionel Hebert. Hebert's mother died Friday in Lafayette, La., and the 43-year-old pro withdrew. Oddly, the withdrawal changed the 36-hole cutoff figure to five-over-par 149. Had Hebert been able to stay, the slice would have been at 148. Arnold Palme*- staged a mild comeback with a 71, but it left him in a tie for 42nd at 146.
