Stone was out but the Phillies won 3-0. for call on sliding Ron Stone of Philadelphia Phillies in Wednesday evening___________________________________ Vote Today On Setting Junior Hockey Levels ST. JOHN'S, Nfld. (CP) A plenary session of the Canadian Amateur Hockey Association today voted to accept in princi- ple a white paper proposal that would divide junior hockey into two tiers. The white paper, presented Wednesday to the juraor con- gress by the association's board of directors, proposed offering in development funds to the Western Canada Hockey League. Delegates fro'm the Alari- times, British Columbia, Al- berta and Northern Ontario am- ateur hockey associations walked out of a closed session of the junior congress late Wednesday in protest over the proposal. In other developments Wednesday, CAHA president Earl Dawson and A. J. (Buck) Houle, general manager of Hockey Canada, said the two or- ganizations have re-affirmed ttfeir stand to stay out of world hockey competition. On the question of interna- tional competition, Dawson told delegates nothing has changed since Canada pulled out of the 1970 world tournament after the International Ice Hockey Feder- ation reversed a decision to allow Canada to use profession- als on its national team." "There will be no exchange visits between our national team and European countries next Dawson said. "We won't go there and they won't come here." However, there was still a possibility a Canadian lean; might compete against the United States national team, Dawson said. TWO GROUPS AGREE Houle said in an interview that Hockey Canada, the organi- zation which operates the Cana- dian national team, was in com- plete agreement with the CAHA that Canada should stay out of international competition until the IMF allows the use of pro- fessionals. The Canadian Intercollegiate Athletic Union, however, will re- turn to international competi- tion with university teams from other countries, the CAHA was told Wednesday. The CIAU, a CAHA affiliate, missed world competition last January following the CAHA's stand at the IIHF meeting in Geneva, Switzerland. Danny McLeod of Kingston, Ont., the CIAU representative, told delegates Canadian univer- sities want to continue to com- pete with other members of the Federation International Spor- tive Universiade a world-wide body representing universities in sports. Delegates from the Mari- World times, British Columbia, Al- berta and Northern Ontario am- ateur hockey assoc'vtions walked1 out of a closed session of the junior congress late Wednesday in protest over the two-tier proposal. Jack Devine of Belleville, Qnt., junior vice-president, said the paper was accepted in prin- ciple by the junior congress, but there was obvious disagreement about proposed distribution of development money expected from the National Hockey League.

Ten of the 27 teams in the tier one setup would be members of the WCHL, 10 from the Ontario association and seven from the Quebec amateur association- including one from the Ontario district association. The QAHA league would be in tier one but four teams would be considered in a tier two cate- gory for purposes of distributing development funds.

McLeod Inks With Blades SASKATOON (CP) Jac- kie McLeod, former coach and general manager of Canada's national hockey team, was named Wednesday night as coach and general manager of Saskatoon Blades of the West- ern Canada League. He succeeds George Agar who resigned earlier this month. The club said a "gentleman's agree- ment" rather than a signed con- tract was the basis of McLeod's appointment. ANDY CAPP Drivers Of Last INDIANAPOLIS (AP) tests" is a colloquial term used by officials at ihe Indianapolis Speedway to allow drivers one last chance nn the track before the 500. No cars are allowed on the tack after live final round of qualifying except for this three-hour session known as carbura-lion tests. Wednesday afternoon the drivers got the feel of their cars and the track carrying a full load of fuel and with most of the engines entirely rebuilt since the final day of qualifying, last Sunday. Although the idea is not to see, how fast you can go, Al Unser, who will start Saturday's race in the pole position, turned in the fastest lap of the day at 16D.2 miles an hour. His teammate, Joe Leonard, followed with 168.5. Buth drove identical, P. J. Colt-turbocharged Fords. Dan Gurney, Peter Revson, Bobby Unser, A. J. Foyt and Johnny Rutherford cracked 188 miles an hour. Rutherford had the only Ac Chance C hap of the day when a small fire in the lower part of his engine caused the loss of his left rear brake and slight damage to the car. Most of the drivers appeared calm and ready under Wednesday's warm midday sun. One of the most calm, and possibly one of the most ready, was -Dick Simon, one cf four rookies who will go to the starting line at neon Saturday. The 5-foct-B driver from Salt Lake City climbed out of his Vollstedt-turbocharged Ford smiling and joking after to Track finsl turn arcund the track. The 36-year-old father of seven was obviously happy with his car's performance. He said: "The ear ran well. We did 158 to 100 miles psr hour. We didn't want to run any faster because Saturday is close and we have no spare parts." Simon is a former ski and parachuting chair.pion, a scuba diver and the possessor of a multi-engine pilot's rating. He is also the president of an insurance company and the chairman of the board of two other firms.

Andy Shorthouse, making his first start of the season, blanked the Giants on six hits in going the distance. He also fired the third strike past nine Vulcan batters. Roy Elmer was equally as tough as Shorthouse as he gave up only five hits in absorbing the loss, Campbell was the only Cub hitter to get more than one safety off of Elmer as he stroked two singles while Leroy Mason and John Conacher had Into First hits. apiece for the Giants. The win for the Cubs gave them a 4-1 record which ties them with the Lethbridge Junior Miners.
