Action in the four-day medal- play event got under way last Wednesday followed by other rounds Friday, Tuesday and last night at the Lethbridge Country Club.

Final details ironed out The Russians are coming MONTREAL (CP) An agreement was reached Wednesday between the Na- tional Hockey League and members of the Ice Hockey Federation of the Soviet Union for an eight-game tour of NHL cities b> two Russian teams. The eight-game series be p'ayed between Nov. Dec. 8. But after the four-hour nego- tiation session ended, NHL president Clarence Campbell said it still was not known which league cities will feature the exhibition games while the Russians still did not know which two of three teams will be selected for the North Amer- ican trip. However, one thing appeared almost eight games will take place in NHL cities in the United States. Campbell said applications had been re- ceived from 12 NTTT, for the eight games. Neither Montreal Canadiens nor Toronto Maple Leafs ap- parently expressed interest in playing host to the visitors in the middle of the NHL regular season and Vancouver Canucks offered lukewarm to the propo- sition. Coley Hall, a director of the Canucks, said he had been away when the teams were polled about accepting a game, while Lyman Walters, vice- president of the club, said Van- couver "would take a game if it was but that he did not know how anxious the team was to get one. While one club, Buffalo Sa- bres, already had set aside Nov. 27 as a date for a visit by a Soviet team, Campbell stressed that the final decision on what cities will play host will not be made before the league's annual meeting here in June. "Also there is no recipro- cal obligation on the part of the MIL to return the he said. "It's hoped by both groups that this series will lead to something more definitive in the way of a world champion- ship." In addition to Campbell, the NHL was represented by Brian O'Neill, its executive-director; Walter Bush, president of Min- nesota North Stars; president Bruce Norris and vice-president John Ziegler of Detroit Red Wings and Ed Snider, board chairman of Philadelphia Fly- ers. The Soviet Union was repre- se? ed by Kirill Romensky, head of the hockey section of the U.S.S.R. sports com- missariat; Andrei Starovoitov, general secretary of Soviet Ice Hockey Federation; and Victor Khotochkin, international secre- tary of the federation. Campbell said the NHL had entered the agreement as a "joint venture" with the Na- tional Hockey League Players' Association and that prior ap- proval to negotiate with the BEAT THE HEAT AND THE PRICES WITH A YORK WINDOW UNIT AIR CONDITIONER Sizes available from B.T.U. and up at UP NEUKO SHEET METAL LTD. 1811 A 2nd AVE.

He said the Russians must get their respective author- ization from their own hockey federation and from the Inter- national Ice Hockey Federation The NHL said that the Rus- sians will be paid on a per- game basis and that in effect "we (the NHL) are buying an attraction." He would not dis- close what financial arrange- ments had been made with the Soviet delegation. Romensky said that the So- viet Union will be represented by either its Central Army team. Spartak, or Moscow Dy- namos. These three teams fin- ished 1-2-3 in his country's na- tional league this season. The Army squad has nine members of the Soviet national team that recently won the j world championship while there are six nationals on Spartak and four pn the Dynamo team. Starovoitov said it did not matter to the Russians which NHL teams are selected as their opponents. Asked whether as amateurs the Soviet visitors would run into difficulties getting the sanc- tion of their own federation and the IIHF to play against profes- sionals, all agreed there should be no problem. Romensky said there was no problem with the Soviet feder- ation and that bis group had al- ready obtained "preliminary consent of Mr. refer- ring to John (Bunny) Ahearne, president of the IIHF.
