"We are going to have the Games in the installations as now planned, or there will be no Drapeau said Wednesday. But spokesmen for the organizing committee said other alternatives are being considered, including using the Autostade, home of Montreal Alouettes of the Canadian Football League. Work on a proposed million, main stadium, which includes the swim hall and velodrome, has been suspended since Nov. 27 by a strike of iron workers. They install steel reinforcing rods in concrete and no struc- tural work can be done until they return to work. Lord Killanin of Dublin, president of the International Olympic Committee, said in a telephone interview "there is anxiety" that the stadium, centrepiece of the Games, will not be ready for the July 17 opening next year. The only point of agreement between all Olympic planners appears to be that Quebec La- bor Minister Jean Cournoyer must act within days to bring labor peace to the main sta- dium project. Developments Wednesday included the following: labor minister said the Games would be seriously compromised and might have to be cancelled if striking iron workers are not back on the job by the middle of next week. He said major modifications to the planned Ken Stabler named NEW ORLEANS (AP) Quarterback Ken Stabler of Oakland Raiders was named the National 'Football League's most valuable player for the 1974 season by The Associated Press today. Stabler, who earlier this week was named the offensive player of the year, also heads the All-Pro team announced Wednesday: A left-hander who led the NFL with 25 touchdown passes during the regular season, Stabler was an easy winner in the AP poll of sports writers and broadcasters who cover the NFL. He received 36 of a possible 78 votes, easily out-distancing Terry Metcalf of St. Louis Cardinals, who was second with 10. Minnesota's Chuck Foreman was third with five. Stabler led the Raiders to the American Conference Western Division cham- pionship, completing 57.4 per cent of his passes for yards. Then he piloted Oakland past Miami in the opening round of the playoffs, eliminating the defending champions on a touchdown pass in the final minute of the game. A week later, the Raiders lost the AFC cham- pionship game to Pittsburgh Steelcrs. A graduate of the Universi- ty of Alabama where he learn- ed his football under Bear Bryant, Stabler was the Raiders' second-round draft selection in 1968. He was a reserve until 1973. In 1973, he won the Oakland quarterback job from Daryle Lamonica, taking over in the season's third game and start- ing the last 11. Under Stabler, the Raiders were 9-2-1 that year and then 12-2 this season. facilities may be necessary. St. Pierre, organiz- ing committee president, said the Games hopefully will be held in the installations now planned, but possibly at other sites now being studied. He said one of the possibilities is the Aiilostade, which might be enlarged to seats and serve as the main stadium. received a tele.- gram from Drapeau with assurances everything will go as planned. went to Ottawa to discuss future Games financing with federal govern- ment officials. minister Cournoyer returned here from a cabinet meeting in Quebec City arid began to prepare for a legislature committee meeting next week that may result in an enforced settle- ment of the labor dispute. WILL DECIDE TODAY SEATTLE (AP) A deci- sion will be made today on an expected second trial post- ponement in the lawsuit regarding removal of Seattle's American League baseball team four years ago. The case was scheduled lor hearing Wednesday. By PAT SULLIVAN Herald Sports Editor He may have been gone, but he certainly wasn't forgotten. When Bryan Trottier stepped on the ice Wednesday- evening against Flin Flon Bombers a ripple went through the crowd of "he's back." Trottier, along with left winger Brian Sutler, had missed the last three Bronco games as they were members of the Western Canada Hockey League that took part in the World Junior championships. Canada lost the gold medal to Russia but Trottier was named Canada's outstanding player. "Wasn't he something out there said a very pleased Bronco coach Earl Ingarfield. He, of course, was referring to the six point perfor- mance of Trottier as he led the Broncos to a convincing 9- 1 victory over Flin Flon Bombers. Trottier fired home two goals and added four helpers, and he could have added two or three more points with any luck at all. as the Broncos built up 3-1 and 6-1 period leads in the rowdy contest. Alec Tidey, Gary Wagner and Darcy Regier also scored twice for the Broncos while Hpn Delorme added a single. Mark Davidson caught Lethbridge netminder Glen Anweiler off balance in the first period and scored the lone Flin Flon goal. Renner, Currie tied for first RED DEER (CP) The Alberta Junior Hockey League scoring race has turn- ed into a two-man fight between Don Renner of Taber Golden Suns and Tony Currie of Spruce Grove Mets. Statistics released by the league Wednesday showed the two sharpshooters tied for the lead with 80 points, 16 more than their nearest rival. Currie, a 17-year-old centre, overtook Renner, the leader for most of the season, with a LDS dinner all set for Saturday All is in readiness for the seventh annual LDS Father and Son Athletic Awards Banquet Satur- day night.

The purpose of the meeting is to elect a new slate of officers for the coming year and to discuss any new proposals. Anweiler, in his first start at home for tile Broncos, shut the door on the Bombers after Davidson's goal block- ing 22 shots. "I wish I had made 42 said Anweiler. His biggest save of the night came at the eight minute mark of the second period with the Broncos leading 3-1. He stopped a shot from the point but the rebound got away from him and Davidson had a point blank shot but Anweiler got his leg on the shot and stopped it. "If that goes in it's a 3-2 game and it could have changed things said, Ingarfield. Broncos took 13 of 19 minors whistled down in the game. Each club was assessed three fighting majors while Bombers' Rich Gosselin added a major for spearing. Broncos took two misconducts to one for the Bombers while each club was assessed a game miscon- duct. "We beat them in every was the way Ingarfield described his club's triumph. Broncos fired 47 shots at Roger Swanson and Dale Hideout in the Bomber nets. Swanson left after two periods having stopped 27 shots. Trottier set the pace in the first period after Davidson had scored. He set up Tidey for the first Brouco goal at and then came right back just over two minutes later to help Regier score his first of two. Trottier put the icing on the cake in the first period as he scored while the Broncos were shorthanded. He stopped two shots at the Bronco blueline and then broke in on Swanson alone. One quick fake, Swanson headed for the exit and Trottier put the puck behind him. Regier scored to open the second period, again from Trottier as the Broncos opened up a three goal lead. Wagner, who missed out on points Sunday while his linemates each garnered' three, scored the fifth Lethbridge goal as he pumped a rebound past Swanson after Jerry Bancks had tested the Flin Flon goalie with a hard shot. Trottier closed out the second period scoring with a neat little move at the side of the Bomber net that had Swanson going the wrong way again. Tidey, Delorme and Wagner accounted for the Bron- cos' third period markers. Meanwhile, three more Broncos were added to the eastern All Stars for Tuesday's WCHL All Star game in Victoria. Joining Trottier and Sutler were Delorme, Tidey and defenceman Doug Gillespie. Broncos play host to Winnipeg Clubs Friday night at eight at the Sportsplex.
