Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - May 24, 1973, Lethbridge, Alberta 3 _ THE IETHBRIDGE HERALD Thursday, May 24, 1973 Jurisdictional dispute with HHF continues cries for CAHA sanctions CHARLOTTETOWX (CP) A Jurisdictional dispute between the International Ice Hockey Federation (IIHFl and the Ca- nadian Amateur Hotkey Associ- ation (CAHA) may end in litiga- tion if the association follows a suggestion made Wednesday by j outgoing president Joe Kryczka of Calgary. I Kryczka told delegates to the 57th annual convention that the CAHA may seek a court in- junction to prohibit a European PITTSBURGH (API burgh Penguins cf the National Hockey League ha' e lost tu o pajers this >ear to the Hockey Association, and star centre Syl Apps is icoUig over his shoulder.

Cleve'and Ousaders of the been negonatmg v.un iavu_r Al but Apps doesn t beem too inter- ested in making a mcne there. "If Toronto owned my lights in the WHA., he said, "that would be a different matter. If Toronto o..norl rr-' r.ghts, it would be a b'2 temptation to p'ay with them. The Ottawa franchise has been shifted to To; onto for the coming season. Apps' home is in Kingston. Tne 25-year-old bachelor's fa- t'-er, XHL Hrll cf Turner, Apps, is Ontario' minister cf correctional services. "If I'm going to jump." Aprs said, ''it'll be to a citj I reallv like.

Meanwhile, left v. ing Steve Cardwell signed Wednesday with Minnesota Fighting Saints cf the WHA, the second Penguin to jump to the WHA in a week. Reserve goalie Cam Newton earlier signed with Chicago Cougars. The Penguins, however, would feel the loss of Apps. He is the spark plug of the team Last year he set a club record for assists. Penguin general manager Jack Kilev said Wednesday night that he "doubts very se- ricusly if Apps will leave."

The club announced Wednes- day that Camille Henry has signed a one-year contract to coach the Golden Blades, for- merly the Raiders, in the 1973- 74 season. No figures were disclosed, but a club spokesman said Henry will have a salary representa- tive of other major-league hockey teams. It is believed he will earn about 530.000 annually. The Golden Blades also an- nounced they had acquired de- fenceman Ray Larose from Houston Aeros in return for the negotiation rights to goalie Ron Grahame of the University of Denver. Larose, six-foot 190-pounder from Quebec City, played in 68 games for Houston last season and scored one goal and 10 as- sists and spent only 25 minute in the penalty box. The nucleus of the Golden Blades remains intact since most of the top players were signed to long-term contracts last year when the Raiders made their debut in New Square Garden, Last season, Henry had his problems trying to coach an ownerless club. The original owners, lawyers Dick Wood and Seymour Siegel, had personal problems as well as financial ones and were not able to meet the payroll of the team with the scison less than two months old. team from playing in Canada unless their tours are sanc- tioned. Noting that the international scene had become of vital im- portance, Kryczka said "our in- terpretation of the IIHF regu- lation is diametrically opposed to the views held by their presi- dent, J. F. (Bunny) Ahearne. "Mr. Ahearne Believes Eu- ropean teams can engage in ex- hibition games with professional clubs in Canada without CAHA permission. "I strongly suggest that if the IIHF and Mr. Ahearne persist in this attitude, the CAHA should apply to the courts for an injunction restraining the Russians or any other European hockey team from arranging tours in Canada without our consent.'' NEVER DISAPPROVED "We have never said that the CAHA disapproved of games between the Soviet Union and National Hockey League Kryczka said, "but we are determined that all such tours must be sanctioned by this association. "The National Hockey League is not anxious to have a con- frontation with the Kryczka said, "and that is the reason all games in the up- coming series between the Rus- sians and NHL teams are being in the United States." Kryczka's comments followed a report to the plenary session by Gordon F. Juckes of Ottawa, CAIIA executive director. Juckes was reviewing a re- port of his visit to the World Hockey Congress in Moscow in April. Juokes said there were three items of primary importance olving from the congress. One was open competition for the world hockey championship, an- other was open competition for the world junior championship, and a Jurisdictional argumenl over which association had the right to sanction tournaments between European and Cana- dian clubs in Canada. MINISTER GUEST SPEAKER In the evening, Gordon L. Bennett, minister of justice and acting premier cf Prince Ed- ward Island, was guest speaker at a dinner sponsored by the province. He acknowledged that tlie CAHA had an untarnished reputation as leaders of hockey in this country, and asked the association to "forget about professionalism at the minor tioekey level. 'The interest of these young players will be best served by supporting a program that pro- vides "sheer h e said. Earlier in tte day, T. B. VlcCormack of Thunder Bay, Ont., vice-president of the mi- nor hockey congress, told dele- gates his group was "concerned about the effects of pressure on boys under 10 years of age playing in organized groups. "We hope all aspects of this concern will be thoroughly in- vestigated by the CAHA's tech- nical advisory group's subcom- mittee on under the chairmanship of Dr. George Lariviere of the University of Quebec. McCormack said he hoped the results of the study would be applicable to all minor sports.

A team in Concord, N.C., is facing suspension from the Babe Ruth League for playing a 13-year-old girl, Yvonne Burch, and another Babe Ruth team in Scheneotady, N.Y., is refusing to play Sheila O'Donnell, 13, al- though her mother insists, "Sheila can throw and catch a ball like any 13-year-old boy." Female tykes are causing great concern among men who insist rules are rules and girls have no business play- ing certain games with boys. "We are getting a tremendous amount of mail on the said Robert Sirrat, director of public relations for the Little League. "But our directors have taken a firm stand that there is no rf-.ce for girls in the Little League. We are considering es- tablishment of a special league for girls." That may not suit Jenny and Carolyn but, as of the moment, they are fighting a losing battle. "Baseball is a contact said Stirrat. "It can be hazard- ous.

Flyers give Shero new contract PHILADELPHIA (AP) Fred Shero, coach of Phila- delphia Flyers of the National Hockey League, received a new three-year contract Wednesday as a reward for the team's im- proved performance, and to dis- courage offers from the rival World Hockey Association. The 47-year-old Shero's origi- nal thres-year contract had one season remaining, and there were reports he had been ap- proached by the WHA. He joined the Flyers in June, 1971, after 10 years in the New York Rangers' organization. Shero guided the Flyers to second plane in the NHL West Division last season. Phila- delphia went on to defeat Min- nesota North Stars 4-2 in the best-of-seven game quarter-final Stanley Cup series, but lost 4-1 in the finals to eventual cham- pion Montreal Canadians. In Shero's first year, the Fly- ers missed the playoffs when they lost the last game of the season to Buffalo Sabres in the final three seconds.

Carrillo said in a statement: "I want to make it clearly un- derstood that the team sponsor, Norris Industries, had no knowl- edge of my attempt to disguise the No. 34 car as the No. 31 car. I personally apologize for the great embarrassment which I have caused Norris Industries." Posey said "there had to be a fall and added Carrillo would be offering his resigna- tion.
