Canadians have yet to skate Russian dance pair move out in front Elks, Hornets open playoffs The Lethbridge Midget Elks and Vauxhall Hornets will open their final playoff series to determine the champions of the south division in the Southern Alberta Juvenile Hockey League tonight. The winners of the best-of-three series will advance to the league championship final against the winners of the north division later next month. Game time is set for 8:30 p.m. at the Civic Ice Centre. BRATISLAVA, Czechoslovakia (AP) - Russian ice dancers Ludmila Pakhomova and Alexander Gorshkov opened defence of their world title Wednesday by winning the first of three compulsory dances at the Bratislava world figure skating championship. The married couple, both 26, collected 51.30 points in the Starlight wailtz to take the lead ahead of their top rivals, the West German sister and brother team of Angelika and Erich Buck, who had 50.10 points. Hilary Green and Glyn Watts of Britain were third with 48.70 points with the rumba to be skated in the Wednesday program and the Argentine tango on Thursday. The section counts 30 per cent toward the title, which also includes set dance and free skating sections. The crown will be awarded Friday. Blonde soloists Karen Mag-nussen of Canada and Janet Lynn of the United States were a!so to resume their tight duel today for the women's world singles crown, WIN CHEERS Dressed in purple skating suits, the Russians, three-time world ice dance champions, earned cheers and heavy applause from an estimated 5,000 spectators in the indoor winter stadium with their graceful style and low sweeping turns as they circled the rink to the waltz music. Most of the spectators during the midday competition were Czechoslovak school children, who greeted Judges' marks flashed on the score board with whistles of disapproval, despite appeals against "expression of sympathies and antipathies which disturb the skaters." In the heavy schedule for the second-day of the five-day championships, Canadian dance couples Barry and Louise Soper of Vancouver and Barbara Ber-ezowski and David Porter of Toronto faced their first trial in the compulsory dance. "We plan to take everything in our stride," said Barry Soper. "We're here to better our ninth placing at Calgary. To place in the top three and win the bronze medal would be memorable although I think we'd settle for fifth. Anything below that would be a bit disappointing." In their first world championship, the Toronto pair say they are here for the experience. PLANS FOR FUTURE "Being realistic, we don't stand a medal chance at all," said 18-year-old Miss Ber-ezowski. "All we hope for is to make a good impression. Then, in years to come, we may be seriously considered in the running." Following the dance com-pulsories, Miss Magnussen and team-mates Cathy Lee Irwin and Lynn Nightingale take to the ice for the second section of the ladies individual event, the compulsory short program. The 20-year-old Miss Magnus-sen took the lead in the women's singles with 120.1 points in the compulsory figures section. Janet Lynn of the United States, her long-time rival, was second with 116.5, Miss Magnussen was placed first by nine of the ten judges while Miss Lynn got one first-place vote and nine seconds. Miss Irwin, from Toronto, was 11th and Ottawa's 16-year-old Miss Nightingale placed 15th. Today's compulsory short skate will indicate whether Karen will go into Thursday's free skate with a strong chance of winning the over-all title. NEEDS BIG LEAD While she held the lead, experts here felt that the American could make up the deficit with her free skating. Karen's objective today was to pull further ahead in the short program to reduce Miss Lynn's chances of overtaking her in the free skating.

The final event today will be the pairs free skating program which will likely be dominated by the powerful Soviet couple, Irina Rodnina and Alexander Zaitev who won Tuesday's short program. The Toronto pairs, Sandra and Val Bezic and Marian Murray and Glenn Moore, placed seventh and ninth respectively in the short program and will have to put on impressive displays in the free skate to close the gap on Rodnina and Zaitev and their team-mates, Ludmila Smirnova and Alexay Ulanov, who placed second. "I'm very happy with the way things are going so far," Canadian team manager Charlie Dover said. "Of course, we all knew Karen would win in the figures but it was a nice surprise to see Marian Murray and Glenn Moore do so well in their first world championship.  "By the time this championship is over, I'm convinced Canadian skating will be recognized as some of the finest in the world." Still considei-ed a threat Trevino praises Snead ORLANDO, Fla. (AP) -When Sam Snead came wandering out of the West Virginia hills to try his hand at professional golf, most of the players now on the tour weren't born. "He's the most outstanding athlete the world has ever seen," Lee Trevino says of Snead, still sporting the spiffy panama straw hat and the sweet swing that was his trademark four decades ago. And Snead, now closing in on 61, is a threat every time he tees it up, even though he's competing against men less than half his age, "I think he'll win before'we get out of Florida," said Jack Tuthill, the veteran tournament director for the Professional Golfers Association Tournament Players Division and one of the game's most respected observers. ARNIE WAS A BOY Snead started on the pro tour in the dark days of the Depression, when Arnold Palmer was eight years old. It was the year Joe Louis beat Jim Braddock for the heavyweight championship; the Duke of Windsor married Wally Simpson and Spencer. Tracy won the Oscar for Captains Courageous. A stringbean kid named Ted Williams was a hot prospect in the Pacific Coast League; Roosevelt began his second term with John Nance Garner as vice-president, and civil war broke out in Spain. Don Budge was the athlete of the year; Ducky Medwick was the National League batting champion and Howard Hughes set a speed record when he flew across the United States in seven hours, 28 minutes. IMS WON 83 Since that time, Snead has won a record 83 official tour events and several dozen other tournaments, the latest another national seniors title about a month ago. Last season, Snead played in only 12 official events, but won more than $35,000. He took Jack Nicklaus through 63 holes before bowing in the Doral-Eastem Open, was fourth in the PGA national championship he first won in 1943, eighth in the Walt Disney World and 10th in the Canadian Open. This season he challenged for the lead through three rounds and finally finished seventh in the Glen Camobell-Los Angeles Open, with a three under par 281 total. In his only other start this year, at the Jaclde Gleason tournament Sunday, he tied for fourth with a six-under-par total and pushed his season earnings to $16,648. Dojack gives up position TORONTO (CP) - Paul Dojack of Regina, a veteran Canadian Football League referee, has retired as the CFLs Western officiating supervisor, commissioner Jake Gaudaur announced Tuesday. Dojack has cited an increasing workload in his job with the Saskatchewan government and a wish to devote more time to community affairs in Regina as the reasons for his retirement, Gaudaur said in a statement. Prior to becoming the Western Football Conference supervisor of officials, Dojack had refereed in the CFL for 24 years including 14 Grey Cup games in which he was the head referee in eight. Gaudaur also announced that referee Hap Shouldice of Ottawa has been named the CFL's first director of officiating. He will be assisted bv Don King of Regina, the new WFC supervisor of officials, and Harry Ross of Montreal who becomes the Eastern Football Conference officials supervisor. Minor hockey Fort Macleod Colts upended Lethbridge Colts 7-4 Monday to win their two-game, total goal series 13-11. Lethbridge won the first game 7-6 Friday. Fort Macleod now awaits the winner of the Banff-Canmore series. Kelly O'Sullivan led the way for Fort Macleod with three goals. Singles went to Ron Plourde, Kenny Schmidt, Darcy and Randy O'Sullivan. Bob Quinell, Dave Jackson, Cliff Miyashiro and Michel Du-mont replied for the Lethbridge Colts. In Midget action Barry Ont-kean put on a one-man show as he scored all four goals in leading the Lakers to a 4-3 win over the Stampeders. Steve Campbell, Al Boras and Lanny Hendry scored for the Stamps. The Voyageurs scored a goal in each of the three periods and posted a 3-1 victory over the Jets in Bantam "A" action Tuesday night. The Voyageurs, a Pee Wee "B" rep team, earned their first win of the season by dropping the Jets. Dale Kiminski, Mike DeHeer and Fred Thomson tallied, for the Voyageurs while Richard LaPlace replied for the Jets.
