The noise, the thrills and the spills that are Alberta Auto Rp.cers opened another seasor of racing before a gathering o: better thin The noise ana the thrills were there but the spills were missing. There were a few minor scrapes but nothing really hap pened until the "C" Class fi nal and even then caution pre vailed for the most part. George Androckovich, in a 1965 Ford, emerged with the spoils in the "C" class after the race was restarte( three times. Al Firth had his fun in the "C" final and even with a sec ond chance still found very lit tie success in completing one circuit of the track. He went up and over the bank on the firs lap and after a restart endec up in the infield and stayec there until the race was over Androkovich had his fun eluding a four-car pile-up 1 occurred with seven laps left i the 25-lap final. Rene Pierens Rudy Enns, Dale Skiba an Bruce Johnson had a galherin in the turn just before th grandstand straightaway bu the "C" class final winner man aged to manceuver his wa past the mess and hold the lea until the end. Murray Skelding, a first yea j driver who earlier had won 1 heat in Car 40, finished Openin n to Androkovich. Fred Dueshle followed Skelding across the i Crash line. A total of 15 cars g were in the "C" class final. In the "B" class final it was Jack Tiffen all the way as he got off to a flying start and f held the lead throughout the 1 12 laps. Only four cars part in the "B" final. Five "B" car i were on hand Sunday but th only "B" class heat took its Action on Bob Helmer's car. Lindy Smith, who took the checkered flag in the heat, was second to Tiffen while tliirc was Tom Dowdell. The gathering was treated to a new class of cars Sunday as "D" class has been dropped. The new class, the Sportsman, brings about the duels between V-8's and while they are quieter than the old "D" cars they certainly provide more excitement. In the Sportsman final Wayne Bailey took the checkered flag after staving ofi strong bid by Tom Ayerhart and George Mercer. Again there were only four cars in the 12-lap final but the crowd got their money's worth as Bailey nipped Ayerhart at the finish line. The fourth car in the final was driven by Len Vase-lenak, the winner of the only heat run off. Ayerhart was the fastest in the Sportsman time trials while Tiffen set the pace in "B" class. In "C" class speed dash honors went to Ed Grisak. In other "C" class heats the winners were Rudy Enns, Rene Pierens, Skelding, George Ber-rington, Vern Wakefield and Dale Eikiba. SAAB, officials hope to have racing next weekend but at present it is not known whether they will be staged or not.

A proposal to have the play offs for the Allan emblem atic of Canadian senior amateur hockey in tourna ment form with all teams meet ing in one city was expected to be supported by Atlantic and western ST. JOHN'S, Nfld. (CP) -The Canadian Amateur Hockey Association will vote this weel on whether Canada will remain out of all international hockey competition, including the 1972 Olympic Winter Games in Japan. .Earl Dawson, CAHA president, said Sunday night the association's board of directors decided earlier this spring Canada would stay out unless the national team was allowed nine professionals. Dawson, of Rivers, Man., said in an interview he would give details of the board's decision at a plenary session of the CAHA's annual meeting which begins here today. He was confident the member s h i p would support the stand. "We won't go over on bended mees and make complete fools of ourselves" by submitting to a ruling of the International Ice Hockey Federation that only non-professionals be used. The International Olympics Committee will accept 16 teams for the 1972 Games at Sapporo, Japan and they will be chosen jy the HHF from among those who compete in next year's world cup tournament in Switzerland. DROPPED OUT Canada dropped out of World Cup hockey earlier this year when the IIHF forbade the use of professionals. However, Canada could still take part in Olympics without entering a wholly-amateur1 team in next year's World Cup if less -hail 16 countries applied to go to Japan. Dawson said it was unlikely .6 countries would apply, nainly for financial reasons, while at the same time Japan vould be anxious for Canada to enter. Canada's position was that T] should be allowed "to use on best players as do the Europear The five-day meeting wil have daily plenary sessions open to representatives from al 11 branches. Congresses, held later eacl day, will be open only to dele gates involved directly with teams in their respective divi sions.
