Sugar Kings, following a sweep of a pair .of games in central Alberta last weekend, are in first place in the six- team Alberta Junior Hockey League but don't have that much breathing room. After .10 games the locals have a record of six wins, three ties and one setback.

He was given suspended sentence. Harvey, 45, for many years a Montreal Canadians defence- man, was arrested at Uupland Airport about a.m. Wednes- day when an ROMP constable found a loaded revolver in his briefcase. Police explained that exami- nation of the briefcase was rou- tine in light of the early hour and iii view of security precau- tions prompted by the terrorist kidnap and murder of Quebec Labor Minister Pierre Laporte and the kidnap of British trade envoy James Cross. Harvey gave no indication why he was carrying a re- volver, police said. Harvey and two other per- sons had flown in a pri- vate to Ottawa from Montreal about 1 a.m. Wednes- day and, according to police, "went .on the town for drinks and Chinese food." They had just returned to the airport when the revolver was found. Boys' and Girls' SKATE EXCHANGE SHARPENED SHINED NEW LACES SANITIZED PAIR APPROX.....

Kings have met the Stamp- eders, the defending league pen- nant winners, twice coming out on the right ends of 7-1 and 4-2 counts. Meanwhile Lanny McDonald, a second-year forward with the Kings, is off to a fine start in the scoring race. To date Mc- Donald has fired home' nine goals and with the addition of 12 helpers has 21 points. The Lethbridge sharpshooter is tied with Rob Leguffiox of Calgary for the leadership. Leguilloux has the identical record. In third place is another Sugar King, McCrea Also in his second season, Mc- Crea has eight goals and 10 as- sists and trails the leaders by three.

WILL TELL SERIES SPLIT Kuhn's news conference was called to announce the details of he dividing up of World Series rumors circulated hat the commissioner would ise the occasion to announce Hood's signing. But a spokesman at Kuhn's office said he would be "very, very surprised if the commis- sioner makes any sort of an stating that task vould be up to Short. He added that any contact, which Short and Kuhn have in isted would have nothing to do vith Flood's suit and would not nfluence the case against base- jail, would have to be approved jy Kuhn. Flood has contended he will not sign a contract unless the reserve clause is Short, asked whether a contract offered Flood would contain the clause, replied: "I, don't know what the contract will contain." And the spokesman at the commissioner's office said Kuhn "definitely would not approve'' a Flood pact without the clause Short, Kuhn's office and the players association all deniec reports Wednesday that Flood Md agreed to salary terms ex ceeding a year. But Short, noting that Phila- delphia offered Flood more than added: "My offei would be in that area." LEADERS McDonald Lelti. Leguilloux, calg. McCrea, Colbourne, Calg. paskuikl, Llth.....

He likes to practise, saying "it's and the leading rusher in the Western Foot- ball Conference has no ambi- tion right now to play hi the National Football League. When the 1970 Campaign began, the Stampeders were in desperate need of the full- back with the retirement of veteran Ted Woods. The scouting brains went to Arizona State University and found their man, but it wasn't McKinnis. It was team-mate Art Malone. a highly-touted running back quickly nabbed by Atlanta Falcons of the NFL. McKinnis, known only as Malonc's room-mate on Ari- zona's road games, was also a backup fulback for two years "and was lucky if I put in four full games during that time." SEARCH ELSEWHERE After losing Malone, the Stampeders continued their search for a fullback else- where. That's when an Ari- zona State coach called to re- mind the Stampeders they had passed up McKinnis. Paduano, Cliuvalo Look At Future MONTREAL (CP) Young Donato Paduano of Montreal and George Cliuvalo of Toronto are at opposite ends of the fistic rainbow, but both are looking to the future. Paduano, 21, Canadian welter- weight champion with 21 straight wins as a professional, and Chuyalo, 33, Canadian heavyweight titleholder, arc looking to separate limits here Nov. 5 to further their fisiic careers. Tlic pair arc part of a five- bout 10-round non-title affairs that co-promoters Regis Lcvcsque and Marcel Salvail have booked for the Montreal Forum. Paduano, ranked No. 3 in the Ring Magazine ratings and No. 5 by the World Boxing As- sociation, will battle Don Ross of Toronto, 33, who was out of action by a back injury two years ago. Cliuvalo will meet Tony Ven- tura, a journeyman heavy- weight from Buffalo. The oilier three bouts feature two heavyweight matches and cue in the welterweight class. "We were told McKinnis had potential to warrant a trial." said Calgary coach Jim'Duncan. "After consider- ing the time we spent trying to get Malone, we were will- ing to try anybody we thought had a chance." McKinnis has undoubtedly been Calgary's brightest 'af- terthought of the season. With one full season of pro football, the 22-year-old has some distinguished creden- tials that point toward all-star status hi the CFL: leads the WFC and CFL in rushing with yards on 197 carries, 108 yards ahead of runner-up Jim Evenson of British Columbia Lions. n 15 regular-season games, McKinnis has scored nine touchdowns, tops among rushers in the CFL. POINTS WITH PRIDE If this isn't enough, coach Duncan has a few points to raise. "He's got all the equipment and be a real superstar. You get the im- pression that he's going to pop out of the pack on just about every cany." As a substitute replacement for Woods. McKiiuu's was not expected to become an over- night sensation. "When you start out with a rookie you don't expect him to reach his peak for two or three Duncan said. "But McKinnis is certainly a pleasant surprise." McKinnis, a native of Sharon, Pa., dropped out of college last year because he couldi.'t meet a requirement on his scholarship program. He becomes eligible for the NFL draft this summer. Before his college career, he played as a tackle, half- back, linebacker and fullback with midget and high school teams in Pittsburgh .and Far- rell, Pa., his hometown. "I think I made the right decision by coming to Can- said the six-foot, 214- pounder. "It's a great league maybe someday I would like lo play in the NFL but right now I'm satisfied." McKinnis agrees with his wife Frieda that the CFL "is just as exciting as the NFL." "Most of the quarterbacks in our league are just as good or better than they are in the McKinnis said. "I just wish that the league or some- body would publish more magazines about the CFL." He keeps a scrapbook of his football accomplishments for posterity "so I can say 1 played a little ball." ented game.

Gamble, cut by Edmonton, played his first game in a Saskatchewan uni- form and scored two touch- downs, romping 16 times for 90 yards gained while Rough- riders' ace ball-carrier, George Keed, watched from the side- lines. Reed was nursing a leg injury and is expected to be ready for playoff action. Halfback Silas McKinme scored the other two Saskatche- wan touchdowns, one on a 30- yard toss from Lancaster and the other on a short run. Jack Abendschan strengthened .his hold on first place in the WFC scoring race with two field goals, three converts and a sin- gle.
