Lethbridge Herald (Newspaper) - March 31, 1971, Lethbridge, Alberta SO - THIIITHMIDOE HERALD - Wednesday, March 31, 1971 Poll of writers, broadcasters votes to stay on sidelines Canada should stand by decision to withdraw By BRUCE LEVETT Canadian Press Sports Editor For the first time since Canada pulled out of international hockey 15 months ago, there are signs she is negotiating for a return. However, the men who write bout and broadcast hockey in Canada feel she should remain on the sidelines until European opponents decide she may ice a competitive team. The vote mas conducted by The Canadian Press among sportswriters and broadcasters across Canada just prior to reports that Canada was seeking an open tournament-a suggestion that was rejected-against Sweden, Russia and Czechoslovakia. Twenty-nine writers and broadcasters said Canada should return to International competition on all levels immediately; 112 voted for the country to stand by the decision to withdraw. Nearly all, however, said the ban on international competition should not apply below the level of the world championships-in other words, that university-and minor-level exchanges should be reinstated.

Two months before the tournament was to have been held, the five countries which, with Canada,, formed the tournament's A group, reversed their decision to allow the Canadian team to play with nine professionals. The confrontation came in Geneva at a meeting between Canada, president Bunny Aheame of London, head of the International Ice Hockey Federtion, and the other five countries- INTERFERED WITH CATCH - Chicago White Sox catcher Ed Herrmann runs in an effort to catch a foul off the bat Pittsburgh Pirates' Al Oliver, in background, Tuesday.
