Maple Leaf Gardens an- nounced the crowd at for the ninth meet on the tour which bad little to offer those who did show up. Among the featured events that fell flat were the pole vault where none of the six com- petitors could get above 16 feet, six inches, and the mil? run where Kenyan Kip Keino failed to show up for his expected con- frontation with Jim Ryun. Despite the lack of ex- citement, Mike O'Hara, presi- dent and founder of the ITA tour, refused to say he was dis- appointed. "No, I wouldn't say dis- Sports seems interested Vancouver Nats sold?

(CP) Pro-Am Sports is negotiating to buy the Vancouver Nats of the Western Canada Hockey League but so far no deal has been made, a share-holder in Pro-Am said Friday. Eldie Dover said the com- pany sent a proposal to Van- couver businessman Nat Bail- ey, owner of the Nats, two weeks ago but hasn't been in touch with him since. Pro-Am owns Calgary's Cen- tenmails of the Western Can- ada Hockey League, Kamloop's Rockets of the British Colum- bia Junior Hockey League and several other junior and junior B interests. The Evening Columbian of New Westminster reported Fri- O'Hara said in an interview. "We never know when we go into a new city what to expect. He said he was concernec that the National Hockej League Stanley Cup final which ended Thursday in Chi cago may have overshadowet any advance publicity on the track meet here. "This is hockey world and you understand that going in but I think next year we'll book it earlier here." Despite generally low attend ances through the nine meets so far, O'Hara said the tour has enough backing to keep going. "We are already booking dates for next year. We've go substantial billion-dollar firms now axe as- sociated with us and we just signed a major television con tract with ABC yesterday. "It was a multi-year tele- vision contract and we're very bullish." TAEKS TIME And as long as the tour can keep going long enough, saic sprinter Wyomia Tyus Simburg. things should improve. Mrs. Simburg won the women's 50-yard dash with a ime of 5.7 seconds, one-tenth of a second ahead of Barbara Fer- rell. day that the purchased by Nats had been "Calgary inter- ests" and would be moved to Kamloops for the 1973-74 sea- son. Mr. Dever said Pro-Am Sports would release more in- formation on the negotiations by the end of the month. Other shareholders in the company are Scotty Munro, general manager of the Cen- tennials; Joe Tennant, mana- ger-coach of the Rockets; Eph- ram Stienake of Kamloops; Mel Burchette of Smithers, B.C.; Abe Burdey of Leth- bridge, and Joe Watson, a player with the Philadelphia Flyers of the National Hockey League. Calgary Centennials now hold the Kamloops franchise in the B.C. Junior Hockey League. Queen's Plate one liorse race TORONTO (CP) La Pre- voyante, the filly owned by Jean-Louis Levesque of Mon- treal, remains the over- whelming favorite to win the June 30 Queen's Plate, accord- ing to revised odds compiled by the Ontario Jockey Club. La Prevoyante, unbeaten in 12 races as a two-year-old last year, was the 3-to-5 winterbook iayorite but now odds have climbed to 6-to-5. A total of 58 Canadian-bred toee-year-olds have been kept eligible for the added, race at Woodbine next month. Second choice in the revised odds list is Zacca Spirit at 3-to- 1. Zacca Spirit is owned by George Frostad of Toronto. Grovetree and B.C. Stable's Victorian Prince is third choice at 4-to-l while Symmetric, owned by Hugh Grant of Brad- "ord, Pa., is next at 6-to-l.

"The more meets we he better it will be because more people will get interested. "It's giving the athletes a chance to do something. Most of :he people in track and field have no place to go." It was not known what had lappened to Keino. Officials said the distance runner had advised them he was leaving lis Kenyan home to come to the Toronto meet but he never ar- rived. HOWE LOSES LEAD In his place, Jerome Howe )rovided the best competition 'or Ryun, taking the lead near he sfcait and staying there until he last lap when Ryun sprinted >y to win by three-tenths of a second. Ryun's time was four min- utes, 7.7 seconds, well off his pro indoor record of 8. Buddy Williamson took top prize in the pole vault after a leap of 16 feat, six inches. Pro record-holder Bob Seagren limped off with second prize, also with a jump of 16-6. Seagren suffered a minor in- jury on his last unsuccessful at- tempt at 17 feet. "I hit the pit where the two cushions corns together and I went right through and hit my tail bone right on the said Seagren who holds the pro record of 17-7. VVIN STREAK ENDS Asked if he thought he would be able to compete tonight at Philadelphia, Seagren said: "Well, I hope to. I'll have to see how it feels." Until Friday night, the ITA tour had one undefeated athlete but that string ended when Lance Babb defeated Leon Cole- mian in the 50-yard high hur- dles. Both the previously-unbeaten Coleman and Babb were docked in six seconds flat, while Paul Gibson came third in 6.1, Lee Evans, who holds the pro record for the 500-yard dash, led from the start to win that event in 56.6 seconds, well off his record of 55.9. Warren Ed- mionson was second in 56.7.

But 14 ytars ago this spring Itorey was through as an NHL fficial after a game he work ed in Chicago. Montreal Canadians were >laying the Black Hawks in the ixth game of flieir Stanley Cup semi-final series. The lawks, who had been languish- ing in the lower reaches of the were trailing three games o two but had played well against the Canadiens and need a win to avoid elimination. "The fans, the players anc he directors of the club all elt the Black Hawks were go- ng to win the Stanley Storey said in an intterview. "The Hawks had a man ad- vantage in the third period.

Instead of hopping over the stick, Litzenberger tripped over it. All the players on the Hawks wore waiting for me to call a penalty. my eyes, there wasn't one. The Canadiens then scored on the return rush to tie the game. The crowd was incensed. "A few minutes later, Bobby Hull started down his wrong wing. Albert Langlois hit him with his hip and Hull went up into the air. The cluck was per- fectly legal. The Hawks were looking for a penalty and, again, the Canadiens scored on the return rush. "In an off-the-record conver- sation with an Ottawa writer, president Clarence Campbell said that I missed the boat, that I cracked under pressure. "I couldn't continue to work after that under such conditions Storey resigned and the lea- gue lost one of its most color- ful and more efficient referees. "A month after I quit, the Rangers and the Bruins ware leaving for a series of four ex- hibition games in Europe. Four Chicago players were on the trip. One of them told me: "You know, your only mis- take was being too good a ref- eiee. You were too close to the play. If you had been further away, you penalties would have called and you would be still refereeing in the Na- tional League." "It was my biggest consola- tion." Storey, 53, has been a fre- quent analyst on the National Hockey League's regular sea- son telecast during the last few years but his main job is with one of the major distilleries. He has often been the referee at old-timers' games across the country and has also made an- nual appearances at the Quebec international pee wee hockey ;ournament. One day, Storey plans to write a book about his many experiences in sport, both as a lalfback with Toronto Argo- nauts in the old Interprovincial Rugby Football Union and as an official in the NHL. "The people have a right to know that professional sport sometimes has its good mo- ments."
