Red Wings Leave Billy Pea Unprotected Important Draft MONTREAL (CP) The Na- tional Hockey League's annual meetings swing into high gear today with the intra-league draft and signs of a better fin- ancial (leal for amateur hockey in the offing. In today's draft each of the 12 clubs is allowed to protect 18 players, with goaltenders and first-year pros exempt. Draft price is per player, with each team allowed to lose only one player. There were a few surprises when the clubs filed their pro- tected lists Monday night. New York Rangers' did not protect forwards Ron Stewart and Don Marshall and defenceman Tim Morton. However, the team stands to lose only one of the three veterans under the draft rules. Also unprotected will be vet eran right winger Claude Prov ost of Montreal Canadiens, def enceman Pat Quinn of Toront Maple Leafs, forward Billy Dea and defenceman Paul Popeil o Detroit Hcd Wings, Bill Speer o Boston Bruins and left winger Reg Fleming of Philadelphia Flyers. Provost has said he will retire rather than join another team. Al Arbour, appointed coach of 'St. Louis Blues last week after a fine record as a defenceman and captain with the club, ap peared on the team's protected list despite the fact he sail Monday he has no intention o filling the dual capacity o coach and player. TAKES NO CHANCES Apparently Scotty Bown St. Louis general manager feared Arbour would be draftee by another club if left unpro- tected. Meanwhile, officials of the Ca nadian Amateur Hockey Asso- ciation were meeting with NHL officers in an effort to amenc the cm-rent pro-amateur agree ment before Thursday's ama teur draft. It was learned that the pro- posed new rules would give the CAHA the present for each of the first 72 amateurs drafted, plus another to funnel back to the club level if the draftee was signed to a pro DATSUN 1600 PICKUP the most misunderstood truck in the country We built the Datsun 1600 pickup to be a tough, rugged, no-nonsense, hard-working tool. Fine. A lot of people bought it for Just that. But a lot of other people bought it and they don't use it for work. They use it for play. We put a sturdy 96 horse engine in it because a working truck needs lots of power. We designed it to haul a ton, because a working truck should be able to handle heavy loads. It gets up to 30 miles to the gallon, because a working truck should be economical to operate. And it handles like a nifty little car because there's no reason why a truck that wears like a tank should handle like a tank. We built North America's number-one selling imported truck to work for its living and they're out there living a life of pleasure. Where did we go wrong?

The committee cut tile maxi- mum curvature allowed to onc- haif inch from the one-inch al- lowed last season and the 1V4 inches permitted two years ago. A new anti-delay rule to be tried during the pre-season exhi- bition schedule was proposed for approval by the league gov- ernors today. The rule would create a free face-off in cases wbure players deliberately freeze che puck or shoot it over the boards instead of clearing or passing it. In a free face-off, the referee will place the puck on the spot of the face-off circle in tha zone of the team committing the in- fraction. On a signal from the referee, the player taking the face-off will play the puck in any manner other than taking a direct shot on the defending goal from within the circle. Also proposed was that basi- cally white uniforms he worn by home teams and colored uni- forms by visiting teams, revers- ing the present system. Also awaiting approval by governors is a doubling of fines for automatic penalties.
