Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - January 18, 1975, Lethbridge, Alberta Saturday, January 18, 1975 THE LETHBRIDGE HERALD 15 WCHL Bancks scores twice, Bucyk once in loss summaries Sullivan Chynoweth means business All one needed was 10 minutes in the basement of the staid old Empress hotel in Victoria to know Ed Chynowetb meant business. Let me take a-iffltaule to explain. Ed Chynoweth is the president of the Western Cana'ds Hockey League of which you and I and all hockey fans of Southern Alberta have become a part of since last summer. Bedecked in slacks, matching sports coat and a turtleneck, Chynoweth gave one the impression he was ready to make an announcement that could lead to a scrap. He was ready for whatever took place. But one only has to meet Chynoweth once and he knows that the young WCHL general if you like is at the ready at all times. Chynoweth, it can be said, would be at home at. a bargaining table or knocking over cans in a back alley if the betterment of the WCHL was at stake. Chynoweth won't pull his punches, in fact, when one is in front of Chynoweth's blows he can only feel happy that his arms are as short as they are. The cause of Chynoweth's displeasure and for that matter that of the entire WCHL has been the complete dis- regard for the future of the WCHL by hockey's two major professional leagues, the National Hockey League and the World Hockey Association. Chynoweth described the deplorable no-pay situation as a case of rape. He is fed up right to his turtleneck and then some. "We provide the product and they reap the says Chynoweth. The WCHL boss didn't say as much but you have to feel that what the two pro leagues, with the backing of the Cana- dian Amateur Hockey Association, are doing is letting the WCHL buy the seed, raise the crops and then moving in and harvesting it all, free of charge. The WCHL has severed relations with the CAHA. It is now a case of don't call us, we'll call you, for the WCHL and why not? A quick tally of accounts shows the two pro leagues in arrears to the tune of That total could be a conser- vative one. "We operate the entire WCHL on a budget of roughly two million points out Chynoweth. "Don't you think we could use that What it boils down to is the fact that professional hockey owes the WCHL at least one-third of its operating budget for this year. How else can you describe the situation? Last year, in June, the NHL and WHA drafted better than average 17-year-olds hoping to turn them professional in their 18th year.. Now, thank goodness, the WCHL will raise its age limit at least one more year. "A lot of our guys who graduate at 19 are having trouble finding says a concerned Chynoweth. "One more year can help them and we mean to give it to them." The tradition of the west has been pioneering. The WCHL has no fear of once again leading the way. This time four years back the WCHL were branded outlaws but all they did was seek to find a better ending for their junior hockey story. Once out of junior the scripts were written and dictated by the professionals. It all appeared as though history would one more time repeat itself. This time, however, the table is tipped in the direction of the WCHL. One finds little room for argument when the WCHL bills itself as the best junior hockey league in Canada, if not the world. "We have a very marketable says Chynoweth "we simply want our just dues." "Maybe, just maybe, junior hockey, with our direction, can lead hockey out of the wilderness it is reported to be adds Chynoweth. The WCHL is looking for support from the Ontario Junior Hockey League and the Quebec Junior League as well. If support is not agreed upon this will not deter the WCHL in seeking what it thinks is fair. Chynoweth points out that the WCHL has commitments it must live up to, one being minor hockey in the 12 league cities. "Teams in our league must pay interest on their Chynoweth admits, "why can't the pros operate in the same A quick settlement of past debts won't alter the WCHL's decision. It has happened before and what will prevent it from happening again should the WCHL bend? No, Chynoweth has the support of all 12 league governors. He is going to do what he feels is best for all of them. And knowing Chynoweth, despite the shortness of time, he would proceed along the same path with or without the backing the 12 governors. You see; Chynoweth has 240 young men's future in mind. SASKATOON 4 KAMLOOPS 1 First Parted: 1. Saskatoon, Peters {Williams, George) K George S Smith S Young K (minor, major) Second Period: 2.
