(CP) - Canada's top figure skaters talk about improved performances this year but they are stopping short of predicting victories in the forthcoming North American and world championships. Even Karen Magnussen, who last week won her third Canadian senior women's title, sounded a note of caution Wednesday when she said: "I hope I'll do well this year, but it doesn't pay to be too confident." The 18-year-old champion from North Vancouver, B.C. was among several members or Canada's team for the North American championships who attended a news conference to publicize the event, being held at Peterborough, Ont, Feb. 4-8. The world championships are Feb. 23-29 at Lyon, France. Miss Magnussen placed fourth in last year's world championships after coming back from a mishap that knocked her out of competition the previous year. She suffered stress fractures in both tegs while in training for the 1969 world championships. She said she expects her toughest competition this year to come from Julie Lynn Holmes of the United States and Austrian Beatrix Schuba. AIM FOR 10TH But while Miss Magnussen will be making her strongest bid yet to capture the North American and world titles, the Canadian pairs champions say they are still aiming for 10th spot in the worlds. Vat and Sandra Bezic of Toronto, Canadian titlist for the second year in a row, went to the world competitions last year with 10th spot as their goal and wound up 14th, "We're still hoping to make 10th spot," said 14-year-old Sandra. "Actually, we hope to do better than that but we'd be happy if we moved up just four places." "The competition is tough from everywhere," said brother Val, 17. "The Communist countries, especially, have the best pairs skaters because they're all subsidized. "I even hear a rumor that the Protopopovs may be making a comeback this year." The Soviet husband-wife team of Oleg Protopopov and Ludmila Belousaova won four consecutive pairs titles in world competition from 1964 to 1968 before retiring. Short sport NEW CHAMPION EDMONTON (CP) - There will be a new national mixed curling champion this year because defending Champion, Dr. Bill Mitchell, is concentrating on another national title. Dr. Mitchell, with his second, Bill Tainan, did not enter this year's greater Edmonton playoff for the mixed title. Rally called worst ever MONTE CARLO, Monaco (AP) - Survivors of the 40th Monte Carlo rally, weary and dirty and their cars battered, spoke Wednesday of the "worst rally ever." Only 35 of the 177 starters crossed the finish line of Tuesday's 930-mile leg, run in a driving snowstorm that at times reduced visibility to zero. Only twice, in the 1980s, have fewer oars returned. Five of the finishers were so late that they stood to be eliminated from the final round, an overnight sortie with seven special speed tests in the mountains behind Monaco. The winners of the rally will be announced Friday. Ove An-dersson of Sweden and David Stone of Britain, driving a French Alpine-Renault, hold a slight edge over their Alpine teammates and defending champion Bjorn Waldegaard of Sweden, in a Porsche. ANGEL TRADED ANAHEIM (AP) - Hoping to bolster their thin bullpen staff, California Angels have parted with steady outfielder Bill Vos for Gene Brabender, the large right-handed starter of the Milwaukee Brewers. The trade was anounced Wednesday. THRILLING GOAL . GLASGOW (AP) - George Best, playboy of British soccer, emerged from disgrace Wednesday night and scored a thrilling goal for more than 81,000 fans watching a charity match to raise money for victims of Glasgow's Ibrox Stadium disaster.

SPOUTS Summaries Fourth place for Bottlers Purity Bottling picked up a victory through a valid protest and moved up into a fourth place tie with the Labor Club while St. Basil's have a solid four point hold on second place as they dropped the M and K Generals 5-3 in City Recreation Hockey action last night. The Labor Club tangled with Purity Bottling in the first game last night and came up with a 5-1 victory which was played under protest. The league officials deliberated on the matter and gave the victory to the Bottlers due to the fact that the Club used an ineligible player. In the second contest of the evening the Saints blasted in three unanswered goals in the first period and one in the second to take a commanding 4-0 lead into the final stanza. Dick Cusson paced the Saints with two goals while Jerry Heck, Wayne Bowes and Al Mathison chipped in with goal apiece.
