(CP) - Officials of the Four Western International Hockey League teams vying for a spot in the National Allan Cup playoffs have elected not to take part in the Western Senior Hockey Tournament in Yorkton, Sask., April 15-18. The decision came Thursday in a telephone conference among officials from Cran-brook Royals, Nelson Maple Leafs, Kimberley Dynamiters and Spokane Jets. Cal Hockley, WfflL president, said costs and the long layoff between the western and eastern series were the determining factors'. Original plans called for the champions of the WIHL, Alberta, Saskatchewan and Manitoba leagues to meet in the western tournament and a similar playoff was to be held in the the east for teams from there. Hockley said in a prepared statement that a WIHL team could be guaranteed between $4,150 and $5,650. This would come from the $2,600 for travelling expenses and between $1,-500 and $3,000 depending on how the team finished in the tournament. Hockley said it would cost a team between $6,500 and $9,000 to go to Yorkton. ?! t1 i' r 1 r ' r ' i. ' r ' r ' ELRICH TIRE SPORT SCORES ��-*��*--�� ----------i- NATIONAL Boston ...
