Hubka, at the wheel of a Mini Cooper, bested Bob Turner of the host club in the division. Lethbridge drivers, of the host Lethbridge Sports Car Club, won two other classes while visitors chalked up vic- tories in three events as well as the women's competition. Thirty-one cars from various parts of the province were on hand for the one-day event. Fastest time of the day was turned in by Noel Rabey of Ed- monton as he won the first class in a Mini-Cooper. John Zimmerman of Calgary finished a close second to Rabey in the final standings. Max Baines gave Lethbridge the class three crown in a VW 1600. Mark Schoepp, in another VW Super Beetle, was second.

Portage juniors are tops WINNIPEG (CP) Portage la Prairie, a Manitoba city of about people 52 miles west of Winnipeg, rolled out the red carpet today to welcome home its first national hockey champions in 31 years. Portage la Prairie Terriers, Manitoba Junior Hockey League champions, completed their long drive to the Centen- nial Cup Monday night with a 4- 2 triumph over Pembroke Lum- ber Kings to take the best-of- seven. The win, before fans in Winnipeg, marked the first Ca- nadian hockey championship for a Portage la Prairie junior team since the Terriers won the Memorial Cup in 1941-42. The victory also brought the Centennial Cup back to Mani- toba for the first time since it was put up for competition by the Manitoba Amateur Hockey Association three years ago. Portage Mayor Lloyd Hender- son has proclaimed a civic holi- day, a victory luncheon is planned for 2 p.m. and another celebration is scheduled for the evening.

Taylor, centre, is welcomed by George Yoshinaka left and Reno Lizzi. More than mill be on hand Indy 500 has come a long way INDIANAPOLIS (AP) The Indianapolis 500-mile auto race will run the 57th time May 28 with another colorful show drawing more than per- sons and heard and saen by millions more around the world. But it hasn't always been so. In 1945, when Anton (Tony) Hulroan of Terre Haute, Ind., bought the Indianapolis Motor Speedway, it was in disrepair. Interest in the Memorial Day classic had diminished after the track was closed four years during the Second World War. The Speedway was built in 1909 as a proving ground for au- tomobiles. The 2Vz-mile asphalt track is the focal point of the Speedway but it isn't the only attraction of the property. Hulman has replaced the an- cient wooden grandstand with steel and concrete grandstands. There now is an estimated seat- ing capacity of and room for an additional persons in the track infield, Hulman hss supervised con- struction of a more than 100- Big market for agents Some agents sneaky MONTREAL (CP) Sports agents and representatives are emerging from all corners of the country as the National Hockey League and the World Hockey Association complete their draft of over-age junior players this week. Some of the agents are dis- creet in approaching players whose pro contracts they would like to negotiate. Others are not so discreet and like to visit the players before and after games and sometimes even at prac- tices. College hockey teams in Mon- treal this season were con- stantly having their players FOR SALE Beautiful 26'xlO' Cabin Cruiser if Sleeping and cooking accommodations if Carpeted floor -k Cupboards Drinking water'tank Leather seats Double gas tank if Trailer S3500 CONTACT ALFRED BRAU, SHAUGHNESSY PHONE 327-9617 bothered by one particular group. One coach said he found an agent lurking around in his dressing room talking to his players without his prior knowl- edge or consent. The Montreal team of Larry Sazant and David Schafia have spent a great deal of time scouting junior and college hockey prospects. Their top client is Denis Potvin of Ottawa 67s, expected to be a first choice in both draft proceed- ings. "There have been a lot of bad tilings said about what we're Schatia said Monday. "Sure we've taken in a lot of junior games, but we've never gone after kids without first getting an invitation from the clubs. "I think it's understandable these coaches and managers want to make sure their players are being represented by people who have enough experience in this business to know what's go- ing on in negotiations." Bob Woolf, of Boston, one of the most respected agents along with Gerry Patterson of Man- j treal and Al Eagleson of To-' ronto, feels that no player should have representation while he is still in amateur hockey. "I have about 250 clients said Woolf. "I've never actually gone looking for them. In hockey, I've got most of the Boston Bruins, and Dick Red- mond of Chicago and Vic Had- field of New York Rangers and Chuck Lefley in Montreal. They've all called me first. "This year I had one of the most unique experiences of all when I picked up the entire Peterborough hockey team. They called in several groups to make a presentation and then a couple of weeks ago, they came to me and told me all the play- ers wanted my services. ''It's going to be a most inter- esting year with this draft here and then the WHA two days later in Toronto. The only thing I don't like is all this talk about so many things being cut and dried with a lot of players hav- ing already signed contracts. "With the situation the way it is today, why wouldn't every player just want to sit back and take a look at both room motel, a 27-hple golf course with nine holes in the in- field and an office-museum building as well as press and hospitality quarters. Hulman, whose wealth comes from varied business and real estate interests, has made the Indy race the richest in the world of auto racing. For the third straight year prize money this year will total more than million. His newest improvement at the Speedway is an addition to the motel to house VIP suites which rent for a year on the second floor and for the third-floor. There are six suites on each floor. The rooms, which overlook the track, v.'ere all rented long before the addi- tion was comipleted, most of them by large companies in- volved in racing. For race day, tickets for re- served seats sell for from to and it costs a person to watch the race from the infield in the midst of one of the world's largest picnics. Gasoline Alley, the strip of concrete that connects the ga- rage area with the pits, pro- vides one of the few places in major sports where fans can mingle with their heroes. MUSEUM ON GROUNDS The museum of 500 and Speedway relics is free and open year-round. But it's the race cars, the speeds and personalities that draw most people here. Racing has changed tremendously since the first Indy 500 in 1911. Ray Hairroun won the first race in a Marmon Wasp at an average speed of 74.59 miles an hour. Mark Donohue, last year's winner, averaged a record 162.962 m.p.h. in a winged Mclaren-Offenhauser. Healing Substance...
