Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - March 13, 1974, Lethbridge, Alberta 24 THE LETHBRIDQE HERALD Wcdimday, March 13, 1974 Alan Eagleson conducts talks for international competition MONTREAL (CP) A Montreal newspaper reported Tuesday that the National Hockey League Players' Association through its executive director Alan Eagleson, has been conducting talks with in- ternational hockey officials regarding a return of Canada to the world hockey champion- ships on an open competition basis. The Star says the talks have been taking place without the knowledge of NHL owners or individual player representatives and that Sports Canada, the sports arm of the federal government, has been involved. However, the newspaper says the Sports Canada people are under the illusion that what's being discussed is a Team Canada- Soviet series, while Eagleson is directing his efforts toward open competition against a group of European teams. In 1972 Team Canada, a group of NHL all-stars, played an eight-game series against the Soviets in Canada and the Ski clinics upcoming in South West Castle and Pincher -Creek will be the scenes of two very important skiing clinics in the next two weeks. This Sunday at West Castle there will be an Alpine ski workshop. Sponsors of the one-day event are the Canadian Ski Association. Alberta division, the 1975 Canada Winter Games Society and the department of Culture. Youth and Recreation. Applications for the workshop must be mailed by March 15 to either Max Gibb at the department of Culutre, Youth and Recreation 515 7th Street South or to Hugh Waddle Recreation Direc- tor. Pincher Creek. Gatekeepers and time keepers will open the clinic at 10 a.m. with race officials to follow at one in the afternoon. There is no registration fee. Meanwhile. Gibb, Waddle or Dr. Hans Buhrmann. Physical Education Dept. University of Lethbridge will accept publications for a two-day cross country ski workshop. Again, no registration fee will be charged and both the cross country and alpine clinics are open to skiers and non-skiers alike. Registered candidates will be notified if the clinics are cancelled. Soviet Union. The Canadians managed four wins, against three losses and one game was tied. "There's no need for a series exclusively with the Soviets." the newspaper quotes Eagleson as saying. "Any talking I have done with Europeans has been on the basis of entering the world championships on an open that would mean an NHL all-star team along Harrison will stay with Oilers EDMONTON (CP) Centre Jim Harrison apparently has settled his salary differences with Edmonton Oilers of the World Hockey Association and says he is willing to finish out his four-year contract. Harrison, recovering from a disc-scraping back operation, says he'll be ready for the playoffs. He has missed 18 games this season but is still the Oilers leading scorer with 69 points. Last month Harrison said it appeared he would never play for the Oilers again and accused general manager Bill Hunter of misrepresenting the truth to him in contract negotiations and misleading the public and news media about his injuries. A few days later he said he would like to stay with Edmonton if the team can meet his contract demands a 10-yecr contract he says the club piomised. Otherjvise, he said, he would like to return to Toronto Maple Leafs of the National Hockey League. Harrison left the Maple Leafs to join the Oilers when the WHA began play in 1972. His contract with" Edmonton runs through this season and the next two. Meanwhile, centre Ed Joy- al will be in the Oilers lineup Friday against New England .Whalers after missing 32 games with a broken wrist and winger Tom Gilmore, out with an injured knee, says he could be playing next week. The Oilers have lost their last two games but coach Brian Shaw says the team is "playing as well as they possibly can." "With our injuries we just don't have excess talent in the FOOTBALLER, 14, DIES FRANKLIN, Tenn. (CP) Steve Lewis Randolph, 14, a Battle Ground Academy football player, collapsed and died Monday during spring football drills, school officials said Tuesday. An examination is being conducted to determine the cause of death after the youngster collapsed while leaving the football field. lineup. Our players work hard but just don't score enough goals. Goal scoring is mostly natural talent. You don't teach it or develop it." The Oilers need any combination of Vancouver Blazers losses and Edmonton wins totalling five to clinch a fourth place playoff finish. "We have to hope to make the playoffs and get everybody Shaw said. Leg Colwill to instruct LES COL WILL For the second year in a row Les Colwill of Lethbridge will be an instructor at the Games City Hockey Schools. Colwill joins guest instructor Vic Stasiuk for this year's three schools. Colwill played all of his junior hockey in Lethbridge for the Native Sons.

Canada withdrew from competition in the world championships in 1970, after the International Ice Hockey Federation (IIHF) refused the use of a limited number of professionals by the Canadian team. The newspaper report says all talks so far have been of a preliminary nature, but that a group from Sports Canada will go to the world championships shortly to look more deeply into the situation. Eagleson, a Toronto lawyer, said that so far hockey officials from Czechoslovakia and Sweden have talked to him about the proposed re- entry of a Canadian team, "and any conversations we've had have been on the basis of playing a group of teams in a else." "Up to now, the NHL owners don't know anything about this, he said. "I can imagine that quite a few of them will be upset when they learn that talks have taken place without their knowledge. I also would have liked to talk to the player representatives, but obviously somebody in Sports .Canada has decided that the time is ripe to say-something." An earlier report from Ot- tawa had indicated plans were under way for another Team Canada-Soviet series. Clarence Campbell, NHL president, said he refused to be surprised or dismayed by the reports. "I know nothing of the matter at Campbell said. "But I presume the NHL will be notified in due course by whoever is conducting the negotiations." The NHL president said part of the current owner- players' agreement calls for negotiation toward international competition to be conducted on a joint basis by the owners and the NHLPA. Eagleson said the decision by "somebody" in Sports Canada to say something now did not surprise him. "Sports Canada has made a career of making mistakes. Just because somebody up there didn't know enough to keep his mouth shut could mean that all of the work we've done up to now could be wasted." One hurdle to overcome be- fore such a series could take place would be the March- April date of the annual world championships. The North American professionals are in the midst of their battles for playoff positions in March, and well into the playoffs by mid-April. Eagleson admits sending a pro team at that time would be impossible. JJOOlCO AUTOMOTIVi CENTRE Custom Tire SELLOUT!

Kelowna foursome g all alone on top OTTAWA (CP) Only one thing was known here about Doug Bradley's British Columbia rink before the Canadian schoolboy championship! they brought hundreds of apples with them. Now the Kelowna high school foursome leads the 11- rink, round-robin event with a 5-0 won-lost record. They became the only undefeated rink Tuesday night after upsetting Robb King's top- rated Alberta entry 9-6. In other fifth-round play, Stephen Johnston of Truro, N.S., downed Ron Collins' Northern Ontario rink from Sudbury 9-4; Donald Pennell's Saint John, N.B., four topped Peter File's Brampton, Ont., entry 7-5; Gordon Larson's Govan, Sask., rink edged Doug Paul of Asbestos, Que., 7-5; and Prince Edward Island's Bill Jenkins skipped his Charlottetown entry to a 7-4 win over Joseph Butler's St. John's, Nfld., rink. Ranked behind B.C. after the fifth round were Alberta and Manitoba with 3-1 records, Saskatchewan and New Brunswick 3-2, Ontario 2- 2. Prince Edward Island and Nova Scotia 2-3, Northern Ontario and Quebec 1-3 and Newfoundland 0-5. DUGUID CELEBRATES In the fourth round, Dale Duguid, son of two-time world curling champion Don Duguid, celebrated his 18th birthday by dumping Quebec 14-7, British Columbia downed Northern Ontario 9-5, Prince Edward Island trounced Nova 'Scotia 10-3, Ontario needed an extra end to edge Saskatchewan 6-5, and New Brunswick raked Newfoundland 9-5. Bradley's victory over Alberta was an uphill battle until the sixth end when he picked up four. King, frustrated by the loss, was even more upset by the umpiring. On a delicate last-shot effort in the eighth end, King was called for crossing the hog line and the umpire disallowed his shot, allowing B.C. a free draw for two. "Their umpires are cutting it too King said. "They called me on a toe... the edge of my toe. The rule is going to be changed in two weeks and you'd think they would give a bit." Official rules stipulate that if any of a player's body or broom passes the hog line during the motion of throwing a rock, the stone is called back. The rule will be modified April 1 to allow a player to cross Uie bog line as long as the stone already has been released. Meanwhile Manitoba, only undefeated rink after five rounds of the Canadian girls curling championships, faces a tough challenge today from Saskatchewan. Saskatchewan, Prince Edward Island and British Columbia are tied for second, each with 4-1 records after posting fifth-round victories Tuesday. But Manitoba, who downed Quebec Tuesday, pot their perfect record on the line against Saskatchewan in the afternoon draw. Alberta was in fifth place with a 3-2 record after trouncing Newfoundland 13-4 in eight ends Tuesday. Quebec followed at 2-3 while New Brunswick, Ontario and Nova Scotia were back, each with one win and four losses. Prince Edward Island downed New Brunswick 13-4 in the fifth round while B.C. staged a big comeback to defeat Ontario 9-6. Saskatchewan had bombed Nova Scotia 13-3 in eight ends. Newfoundland was still winless. In the fourth round earlier Tuesday, Saskatchewan gave P.E.I, its first loss after three opening wins 10-5. Alberta beat Ontario 11-9, Manitoba beat Newfoundland 11-2. B.C. beat Nova Scotia 12- 4 in eight ends and Quebec beat New Brunswick 13-3 in seven.
