Scouiar said purl of the rea- son for the withdrawal of the Movers was the fact that a large portion of the operation of the club had been left solely to Jim McAdie. "Mr. McAdie hss been in- volved in hockey for 43 years and, with more and more of the responsibility for the opera- tion of the club bsing left on his shoulders, he felt he could no longer cope with it."

(CP) Team McLaren won the Canadi- an-American Challenge C u p opener Sunday hut they could sec a threat to their five years of supremacy in motorsport's richest racing scries. New Zealandcr Denis llulme won the 200-mile race for sports-racing cars and will) it in prize and contingency money and the Labatl's Blue Trophy. As he put it aflerward, "I Ihink 1 lucked it." If the race had gone a few iaps beyond Ihe regulation 80, he might not have been so lucky. The threat lo Team McLaren, Can-Am winners since came from a German-built car with lurbochargcd engine and young American driver Mark Donohue, who finished second. The orange cars driven hy Hulmc and bis American team- mate Peter Kevson weren't run- ning so well and the Donohuc car seemed about to overwhelm them. Donohue, winner of the Indi- anapobs 500 last month, had Iho pole position by virtue of his JJE) miles an hour qualifying performance. He started off i .strongly and by Uie 13th lap was pulling away from Rcvson and Hulme. As ho passed the pits on lap Ifl he lost power and almost had to creep two miles around Iho track again before ho could pit the Porsche-Audi while mechan- ics from the Roger Penske fac- ing Organization sought the trouble. Donohuc had lost three taps hy the lime he returned lo the track afler trouble in Iris turbo- charging system was cured. Rcvson, 1571 Can-Am champion, had taken the lead followed closely by Hulme. Then Donohue poured on UK coal lo calch up with the Mc- Larens, gaining three seconds a lap. Mosport in its 12 years oi racing lias rarely seen such desperate comeback atlempt. The German car growled around the track, twice break- ing Hie record for [he 2.45-mile lap. He climber! lo Ihircl .spot from eighth and was a iitlle less than a minuto behind Tlulme at the 7flth lap. Then leader Revson broke his crankshaft in the pil straight and coasted off the course at corner No. J.
