No one has, bul Donald Jackson, stil! considered many llic greatest skater in the world, feels it is possible. riiroo years ago Jackson, who is the guest artist Jo i1 the Lclhbridge Figure Skating Club's production of Land of Oz tonight and Saturday, was a member of Hie Ice Follies. At that time, he recalls now, lie was skating as well as he ever did. He was mote confident and skated with much more ease. Three ago lie was 28. lie was the star of Uie show and had (he world at his feet. Today, at 31, Jackson skates exhibitions, such as (lie one he will perform this evening at eight and twice Saturday, lie promotes the sport which has given him most of the good things in life, and he wears an almost continual smile. lackson was a visitor to our city a year ago and on his return this week, talked at great length on the recently-concluded World championships at Cnl- lie covered the skating competition for a Bri- tish magazine and Canadian Press, as well as doing the color for the CBC, lackson discussed all facets of the championships but dwelled on Canada's Karen Magnussen. lackson believes Miss Magnussen could have won the world title. I didn't think it was possible for Karen lo catch 1 iixic Schuba." he said. Miss Schuba, the world cham- pion in women's singles competition, had built up a 130.8-point lead over Miss Magnnssen with only free skating left. Miss Magnussen recovered 98 of those points in free skating, but Jackson feels she could have gained more. Karen skated defensively I he added. "She skated what I thought was a cautious program." Miss Magnussen's caution was brought about by the presence oE Janet Lynn of the United Stales who was right, behind the Canadian gal following compulsory figures. 1 think Karen wanted to assure herself of second observed Jackson. Over all, the World championships impressed him. J-le feels Calgary put on a great show. The obvious question for Jackson was "will Karen retire and turn "1 really don't he said, "but it depends on 3 number of things." One of those things is Uic retirement of Miss Schuba. Karen finished second to Miss Schuba in the Olympics and again in the World championships. "The scoring changes this coming said Jackson. "Thai could have a lot to do with Karen's decision." As it stands now, it is compulsory figures that trouble Miss Magnussen and they make up 60 per cent of the marks. Next year in Czechoslovakia they will count SO as will free skating. Karen has never beaten Miss Lynn in a free skating competition so she may be looking at another second place finish. Like Jackson says, "only Karen knows for sure when she will retire." In the course of the conversation Jackson made mention of a new skate which could soon be on the market. "I want it to be a good, solid boot before I en- dorse lie said. "It would have to be one I would recommend and have my children wear." Although he never really said it, he hinted that, in his own way, a good skate would be another con- tribution he would make to figure skating. He just can't seem to do enough for the sport.

UNDER VKESSUKi; The Hangers have been under heavy pressure since centro Jean Ratcllc slopped a team mate's shot with his ankle sev- eral games ago. The bone cracked and ended Ttatelle's hid for the scoring title at 300 points. lie trailed leader Phil Espos- ito by one point at ttie time and, along with the other members of New York's G-A-G (Goal-a- Gamc) Line, Hadtield and Knd Gilbert, was on the threshold of NHL history. Had the line continued at its scoring pace, several season highs would have been set by the trio, including goals and points. Already, they have each scored 40 or more goals, the first time all members of one Jine have reached that level, and Hacifield and Gilbert are also closing in on the JOO-point another season first one line. Hadfielrl has D6 points, Gilbert 05. But without Ralelle to rnn- rlfe Ihe slot in front of opposing netminder.s, the other two mem- bers of the line have become estranged. LOSE DEFENCEMEN Ratelle's loss, at least until the playoffs, compounded the Rangers' injury problems, com- ing on the heels of season-end- ing injuries to defencemen Jim in his first game after a trade with Toronto Maple I.eafa rookie Ab Demarco. Guy Charron's goal with less than tlirec minutes remaining ruined goaltender Ed Gtacom- in'.s season-long effort to n-iil clown career shutouts by a New York goalie. G i a c o in i n, who registered eight shutouts last season while teaming with Gilles Villemine to win the Vozina Trophy, en- tered the current campaign with 38 white wa shings an d needed only two to tie Davey Kerr's Ranger mark. A 2-fl win over St. Louis ear- lier this month has been (he only shutout the Svidbury vvt- cran has mustered this year. The Flyers moved into a fourth-place lie with California on the strength of lie with Buf- falo, one point behind St. Louis and two points up on Pittsburgh Penguins.

John Francis, head of public- ity for the week-long meet, said the complaints of Sandra Ste- venson, writing in (he Manches- ter Guardian, are "based on hearsay and conjecture." She criticized the champion- ships for restrictions on skaters' meals and transportation, and their practice schedules. Miss Stevenson said at one point men's champion Onerej Nepela of Czechoslovakia was walking hack to his hnlel but got a lift from a passing re- porter. Mr. Francis said: "In Ihc case of Nepela I suspect that Miss Stevenson did not obtain that information from Mr, Ne- pela but from another journal- ist." The linson officer for the Czechoslovakian squad, Mrs. Hanka Martin, said: "The story about Mr. Nepela is not true." "I was wilh him until 1 a.m. after he won the champion- ship anil he wanted to back to the PaHLser He was with his conch and because I have a small car they decided to t akc a taxi back to the hotel." i_ Schplla Shots on goal 1! 13 Jack's Plumbing Serving lelhbrTrfge FOR ESTIMATES PHONE JACK rULlER 328-2515 Fisli and Game presentations Tlie annual spring banquet o!

George Blundun, chairman of the organizing committee, said the practice schedule was up 3% months ahead of time and circulated to all coun- tries. "The ice time was scheduled for free skating practice and two or three of the skaters in- volved wanted to do figures. Thev asked to switch the sched- ule around and ISU (Inter- national Skating Union) refused because of the mixup it would cause in terms of getting music and other details rearranged." Mr. Francis said the skaters were given a meal allowance of a day wlxicli "is quite ade- quate." Ballard wants baseball team TORONTO (CP) Harold BaJlard, president of Maple Leaf Gardens, says he's explor- ing the possibility of buying the Cleveland Indians baseball team in the American Lcaguo and moving it to Toronto. Batlard, why recently ac- quired conlrol of the Gardens ;md the .Maple of the Na- tional Hockey League, said he was sounded out on the idea by Charles 0. Finlcy, owner of Oakland AtJiletics in tlie Ameri- can League and California Golden Seals in the NHL. "I haven't spoken to Vernon Stouffer, who the Cleve- land team, and J understand Xick Mileli. wlio has tte hockey and baseball teams there is vci7 much Ballard said. Ballard said the purchaso price mentioned for the Cleve- land team was million. He has already borrowed mil- lion during the last year to ac- quire majority interest in the Gardens.
