That used to be the rule when fighting (ires in auto racing. However, there arc motors- port enthusiasts who cannot be satisfied with this ap- proach to (ire. They can't jus- tify the death of a driver be- cause he becomes trapped in his burning car. Such a group is the volun- teer members of the Canadian Race Communications Asso- ciation. Although the group of about 150 presents a cross- section of society In day-to- day jobs, on weekends mem- bers turn out to make auto racing safer for drivers and spectators alike.

The marshals at Mosporl have never experienced a hol- ocaust like the one nt Brands Hatch, England, last summer which took driver Jo Siffert's life. But they have had sizea- ble fires to control, such as the one years ago which con- sumed American driver Augie Pabst's car. Pabst was not trapped in the car. Because the CRCA is con- cerr.ed, 16 marshals spent a day at the Canadian Forces Base in Trenton recently tak- ing instruction. Cpl. Bill Anderson told the trainees: "It may not always be pos- sible to extinguish a fire com- pletely with the equipment at hand, but even one 20-pound dry chemical extinguisher properly used can provide a rescue path or maintain an atmosphere which will permit life to continue."

These suits provide effective insulation against the heat but allow the irefighter only about 30 sc- xmds of direct fire contact. The firefighung marshals save a back-up team of four rained men who wear prolec- ive suits and face masks. The >ack-up men clear a rescue >ath' to the car and hold the lames away from the driver. Then one man in a fire proximity suit approaches the car, turning in circles as he oes in. The silver-colored suits reflect heat away from the wearer but smoke and flames cause the suit to blacken and the circling ap- proach diminishes the char- ring effect.

As it turned out, he was right on at least two counts. Thursday's amateur draft was Ihe largest in the history of the event when the 16 NHL clubs grabbed 152 of the top over-age juniors in North America. By comparison, last year's amateur draft saw a high of 117 youngsters selected by 14 clubs. This year such highly-touted favorites as right winger Billy Harris from Toronto Marlboros of the Ontario Hockey Associa- tion's Junior A series, and centre Jacques Richard from Quebec Remparts wound up with the two newest York Islanders and Atlanta The Islanders and the Flames are the two new clubs ttat will join the league this fall and Harris and Richard were No. 1 and No. 2 picks in an exercise that lasted minutes under four hours. And the convention that endec with the amateur draft set an all-time record for attendance as 833 persons were registered Of that total, 322 represented the press, radio and television from across North America while the remainder was made up of hockey people from the rank of governor down to part time scouts. The total attendance was 298 more people than ever before. The league also managed t find time to select its two new est franchises for the 1974-7 season from among 10 appli cants.
