Edmonton competitors, due lo Ihe severe storm recently, are unable to travel south for the event. third with 89 points on 50 goals and 39 assists. For Wittchen the scoring title was poetic justice.

Friday night. Some 30 local and 50 district rinks are OTTAWA (CP) The annual meeting of the Sports Federation of Canada got off to a rousing start Friday with a motion by football delegates that the federation be disbanded. To be debated Sunday by delegates representing 81 sports governing bodies and other sport associations, the motion charges that the federation "does not function with meaningful direction from its constituents, board of directors and executive and as a result does not truly play an effective role for the benefit of its members." "Be it resolved that the members declare a lack of confidence in the direction and the aims and objectives of the Sports Federation of says the motion introduced by Joe Kurtzman of the Canadian Amateur Football Association and seconded by Ken Smith of the Canadian Cycling Associ- ation. The motion comes at a time when the. federation is propos- ing to broaden its activities and act as a liasion for amateur sport in the international field. Operating under a variety of names, the Sports Federation's chief aim is to be the voice of amateur sport in Canada and provide a platform for it through annual meetings. The federation also conceived the idea of the Canada Summer and Winter Games and plays a big hand in naming their sites, the sports to be contested and in the actual administration of the games. It already has recommended either St. John's, Nfld., or Saint John, N.B., as the site for the 1977 Summer Games. Health Minister Marc Lalonde will announce the site tonight. Asked to explain why he moved his non-confidence mo- tion in the federation, Mr. Kurtzman said touring groups of footballers had been able to compare the Canadian feder- ation with its international counterparts and had found it wanting. Bill McEwen, federation president, told the delegates he welcomed the debate. "You are the federation and the executive does only what you instruct it to McEwen declared. The meetTng also withheld membership of the National Association of Underwater In- structors pending further dis- cussions. Delegates complained that such coaching bodies should belong either to the sport they are concerned with or to their own coaching 'federation.
