MEGEVE, France (AP) -Fast ice is not expected to present much difficulty for the more experienced curlers, but it could prove a handicap for some of the less experienced skips as the world curling championship begins today. Eight countries are entered in the seven-round, round-robin competition which ends Saturday night. Defending champion Canada, Scotland, the United States and Sweden are rated as the top four, with rinks from Norway, West foursomes leading the way CHARLOTTETOWN (CP) -Saskatchewan and Alberta rinks were leading with 2-0 win-loss records following the opening rounds of the 15th annual national Legion curling championship Monday. Minor hockey The Blues rammed in a goal in all three periods while Dale Seeman picked up his second consecutive shutout as the Blues blanked the Bears 3-0 in Pee Wee action last night. Kevin Hunt opened up the scoring in the first period while Ted Slussar followed up with one in the second. Frank Zasad-ny rounded out the scoring in the third. In Midget hockey last night the ACT cruised to an easy 8-0 romping over the Eskimos. Reg Osmond paved the way with three big goals while Ron Moser came through with a two goal performance.

Still thinks Ali the champ LONDON (AP) - Paddy Monaghan, who calls himself Muhammad Ali's No. 1 fan, stood outside a hotel today with a banner reading "Ali is our champ." Hfi hoped tt would be seen by Yancey Durham, manager of Joe Frazier, who was on a business trip here and was staying in the hotel. "I am not really disputing that Frazier won the world title last week." Monaghan said. "But I just want Mr. Durham, and everyone else to know that a lot of us in this country still think of Ali as a champion. Suspended team back TORONTO (CP) - A group of eight-year-old hockey players, suspended for missing playoffs while it made a controversial European trip, returned to Toronto from Finland S'aturday night. The Don Valley team was suspended Feb. 1 from Tyke B competition by the Metropolitan Toronto Hockey League. The Canadian Amateur Hockey Association also disapproved of the Finland trip because it has a policy of refusing to participate in international competiton at all levels. But the team was enthusiastic about the trip. "The people filled the arenas," said Gary McDonnell, who shares the coaching duties with Bob Stewart. "They couldn't believe our boys were only eight years old." The party included 13 players, two coaches, manager Bill Duncan, eight non-playing boys and 43 parents and friends. The team played four games against teams organized by a Helsinki newspaper. Against Finnish boys aged nine to 12, the Canadians won 5-2 and 6-3, tied 4-4 and lost 3-0. West Germany, Switzerland and France expected to finish in the also-ran category. Following Monday's practices, representatives' of the Canadian, U.S., and Scottish foursomes all declared the ice faster than any they had been accustomed to at home. However, none of them expects it to become a major problem. All expect the ice to slow somewhat when the huge television lights, which hang from the rafters of the Palais des Sports, are turned on today. The first round was scheduled for 2:30 p.m. (6:30 a.m. MST) with the second four hours later. The rinks complete regulation play Friday afternoon, with a night session scheduled in the event of ties in the standings. Saturday morning the top four finishers engage in a semi-final playoff, with the two winners playing in the night final. In the first round, Canada faces Switzerland, Germany goes against Poland, Sweden meets France, and the U.S. plays Norway. The evening round today has Scotland against Sweden, Canada vs. the U.S., Switzerland vs. Norway and Germany vs. France. Members of Don Duguid's rink from the Winnipeg Granite Club were impressed with the over-all facilities' here. Duguid, who will defend the Air Canada Silver Broom Trophy he won for the first time at Utica, N.Y., in 1970, has the same personnel again this year in lead Bryan Wood, second Jim Pettapiece and third Rod Hunter. ICE IS FAST Pettapiece and Hunter said they found the ice extremely fast, but figured they would be able to adjust.. Dale Dalziel, the U.S. skip who curled with British Columbia's entry in the Canadian championships in 1958, said his Edmore, N.D., crew will also make the necessary adjustment. The heat generated by the overhead lights may force ice-maker Horst Reictert, imported from Toronto's Granite Club for the occasion, to make some adjustments. This is the first time the world event has been held in continental Europe. It also is the start of a new policy whereby the event will be held for two successive years in Europe and the third in North America. Previously it moved between North America and Europe on alternative years. GERMANY IN 1972 Sunday night it was announced that next year's competition will be held at Garmisch-Partenkirchen, West Germany, with tentative plans to hold the 1973 event in Canada. A new trophy event has been introduced to this year's competition-the European Curling Cup. Eligible will be the five entries from continental Europe: France, West Germany, Switzerland, Norway and Sweden. The new title will be based on the results of games in the regular world championship rounds, with the trophy going to the country progressing the furthest in the win column in its quest for the world trophy.

All Muzzleloading fans and those interested are urged to attend Issue warrants REGINA (CP) - City prosecutor Wilf Meagher said Monday warrants had to be issued for four Winnipeg Blue Bomber football players to maintain jurisdiction. But, he added, it was merely a formality and there was no question the players intend to return and face the charges of assaulting a policeman and obstruction, WEST PALM BEACH, Fla. (CP) - Adolfo Phillips and Jim Fairey are a couple of Montreal Expos outfielders who would like to see manager Gene Mauch's platoon system go away and hide. But neither player will argue with Mauch's shrewdness in playing the percentages. "It looks like the platoon again for me," said Phillips a bit wistfully. "I would rather play regularly of course. With steady play, maybe my hitting would be better. But if the club wants to platoon me, then platoon it is. "There is one thing-no more worry like I used to. I'm too old. I'm 28." Phillips, a native of Panama, has played with two other big-league clubs. He came to the National League Expos from Chicago Cubs in a trade for Paul Popovich in June, 1969. Last season, he played in 92 games, almost exclusively against left-handers, and hit .238. "That's not good enough for me," said Phillips. "I want to hit .280 or .285. "I think I'm having a good training camp, but I can't really tell much about my hitting because so far, I have been in only one exhibition game." Fairey has been used against both right-handed and left-handed pitching during the exhibition schedule and hopes the Cyclist dies after crash REITE, Belgium (AP) - A woman driving a Mercedes crashed into a pack of cyclers in a race here Monday, killing world champion Jean - Pierre Monsers, police reported. Monsers, 22, of Belgium was in a pack of 16 riders when the woman drove into the middle of the racers head-on from the opposite direction near the town of St. Pieters Lille, police said. Last year Monsers captured the world professional road champion title in Leicester, England. He was the Belgian amateur champion in 1969 prior to turning professional later in the year. According to Belgian race regulations, a warning car preceded the leaders by nearly a half-mile with another warning car 300 yards ahead of the leading racers. process will keep up when the regular season gets going. He had to undergo surgery on his left knee during spring training last year and was on the disabled list until April 16. "When I started playing I was used regularly at first. Then perhaps it was thought I needed to rest my leg more and I played only part time. "I am feeling fine this year, hitting well too. And my weight is down." Fairey, 26,.is a native of Orangeburg, S.C. He has been in pro ball only since 1965. After three seasons in the minors, he moved up to Los Angeles Dodgers. He was then drafted by the Expos in the expansion draft in 1968. He played most of the 1969 season with Vancouver Moun-ties, then the Expos class1 AAA farm team in the Pacific Coast League. The compact Fairey, who stands five feet 10 inches and weighs 179 pounds, managed to stick with the Expos last season. He was particularly effective as a pinch hitter, getting 14 hits in 37 pinch-hit appearances for a .378 average. His over-all batting mark was .242 with three home runs and 25 runs babied in. 30,000 MILE WRITTEN GUARANTEE ON SUPREME 150 TIRES Full 4 ply - Polyester Cord 8.25x14 or 8.25x15 .95 Other sizes priced comparably ELRICH TIRE LTD.
