These players may not be older than 22 as of Jan. 10 of the playing season. A board spokesman said the league is prepared to stand by its decision despite any action that may be taken by the Al- berta Amateur Hockey Associa- tion or the CAHA. In a recent agreement signed by the Western Canada Hockey League and the CAHA under which the WCHL returned to the jurisdiction of the CAHA a similar age system was granted to the WCHL. The WCHL sj'stem, however, is to be phased out. The WCHL can use four overage players this year and two the following season. The league said in announcing its decision that the new age limits make the AJHL the first Junior Hockey-League in Can- ada to provide an alternative to professionalism and still pro- vide educational opportunities. Many young players, the board said, are only allowed to play junior hockey for one year after leaving high school before they become too old. Under the new limits, a player would complete a four-year university course and continue to play junior hockey. The league also announced that a 50-game schedule will open Oct. 3 this season and finish Feb. 28. The governors also officially accepted Mount Royal College Cougars of Calgary as its sixth team. The others are Edmon- ton Maple Leafs and Movers, Ponoka Stampeders, Red Deer Hustlers and Lethbridge Sugar Kings. Lloydminister, granted a ten-. tat-ive franchise earlier tills j month, requested their applica- tion be withdrawn on the under- standing they be given consider- ation in future. The league will return Lloyd- minster's franchise fee. Mount Royal will be coached by former National Hockey League star Bert Olmstead. Jim Stewart of Edmonton, acting league president, said the league is delighted to have Mount Royal. "It will enhance our image of providing sound education to players and may open an en- tire new concept for junior hockey leagues in Canada." Stewart said he believes the AJHL is the only junior A league in Canada to have a bona fide college as a member. Lombard!
