Saskatoon should wrap up her second straight national title and the province's fourth in succession. Saskatchewan, curling with machine-like precision, took over sole possession of first place with a convincing 13-4 triumph over Manitoba in Hie seventh round Wednesday night. WAS SIXTH WIN It was the sixth win for Miss Pezer, who was to meet New Brunswick (1-6) this afternoon and Ontario (2-5) in an evening draw. Miss Pezcr, a University of Saskatchewan psychologist and member of the 1969 national championship team, said "On- tario beat Alberta earlier Wednesday and the rink has nothing to 1 o s e It e y '11 be loose." "New Brunswick will play (hat quiet weight like they do in the Maritimes, and if we're not sharp we'll be in trouble." Marie Toole of Prince Ed- ward Island held fifth place with four wins and three de- foals, followed by Sue Ann Bart- lett of Newfoundland with a 3-4 record. Sharon Bettesworth of British Columbia, Helen Howe of Nova Scotia and Helen Sill- man of Ontario were 2-5 and Sheila McLeod of New Bruns- wick had one win and six losses.

However, the Manitoba gills ran into a road block and lost tft-B to Alberta in the fifth round as Miss Beaton scored three ou the first and stole two on each of the second and third ends. In the sixth round, Manitoba defeated New Brunswick 10-5 and was tied for first with Sas- katchewan and Quebec. But the evening round was disastrous as Saskatchewan counted three on the first end against Manitoba, then stole four on the second for a 7-0 lead. It was no contest after 40 minutes. "If we didn't have to play the first two ends against Alberta and Saskatchewan we'd be okay Mrs. Williamson said. "Saskatchewan is good, there is no doubt about that and their sweepers are the best in the championship." Wednesday's biggest upset oc- curred in the sixth round when previously winless Ontario de- feated Alberta 6-5. The Thunder Bay rink jumped in front with three points on the first end and never looked back. Ontario, which lost Its first five games before upsetting Al- berta, was looking forward to a perfect ending. "I was nearly ready to go home if we don't get a said Mi's.
