The main part of Piggott's peecli concerned the new two- rear agreement with the CAIIA and the NHL which designates he WCHL, Quebec Junior Lea gue and Ontario Hockey As sociation Junior A Series as major junior leagues within the AIIA framework. The agreement makes the vinner of the three leagues sole participants for the Mem orial Cup and clearly separ ates major junior and junior A eagues. A three-team round robin series, similar to the one icld in Ottawa this year, is th avored playoff format. Two members of each leagu will be the representation on he CAHA Junior A Hocke Committee.

Meanwhile, franchise apph cations from Prince Albert Lethbridge and Prince George B.C. were tabled and will b reviewed again next year. Stan Maxwell and Her Christie, two well-knwon Leth bridge sportsmen had made th bid for the WCHL franchis some time ago. One of the reasons Loth bridge's bid was turned down was the lack of ice facilities. "They as much as said tha when we get a rink suitable t host junior hockey at th WCHL level, we stand a chance of getting into the said Maxwell this morn ing. Maxwell and Christie had re- ceived a letter from the ieagu informing them that the Ieagu had no room at present for ex pansion. But, according 1 Maxwell, Lethbridge's bid high on the list.

Barring any sudden change Hull will sign Tuesday WINNIPEG (CP) Ben Hal- skin, owner of Winnipeg Jels of the World Hockey Association, said Thursday lie will sign Bobby Hull to a multi-year con- tract on Tuesday. Hatskin said that, barring any sudden changes, he will fly to Minneapolis Tuesday where Hull will sign a contract with the WHA. That contract is ex- pected to give the 15-year Na- tional Hockey League veteran SI million for joining the newly- formed league. Hull will then return to Winni- peg to sign a second contract, that one to play for the Jets, Hatskin said. The pact, a re- ported five-year agreement, is expected to pay the Chicago Black Hawk superstar mil- lion. Halskin said he talked with Hull earlier in the day before Hull left for Toronto, his next stop on cross-Canada promo- tional tour. "Everything certainly looks Hatskin said, "But Ihen, you never know until the con- tract is signed. Something could still happen.

SIGN AT NOON Hatskin, the 53-year-old owner also of the junior Jets of the Western Canada Hockey League, reaffirmed that the Winnipeg signing will take place on the corner of Portage Ave- nue and Main Street, the city's two main streets, at high noon. Hull's lawyer, Harvey Wein- berg, was in Winnipeg Tuesday, apparently looking into a tax-de- (errinent payment plan and making a final study of the Ca- nadian income tax system. The signing of the WHA contract would take place in Minneapolis lo take advantage of the U.S. tax laws. If Hull Jets, it would end six months of negotiations which have been in- tensified since the end of the NHL schedule.
