Revson, with four wins in seven races, has 111 poinls, 31 more than Hulme who has won every Can-Am race hero since the first in 1968. Hulme, then, is the only driver capable of catching his team-male.

The favorite engine continues to be an aluminum-block Chev- rolet V8 of 494 cubic inches dis- placement and more than 700 horsepower. Top speeds at the end of the main straight should be between MS and 205 miles an hour. As well as a wide assortment of McLarens, there are'a couple of Lola T222s built for custom- the prototype T260 driven by Stewart. Most are running Chevy engines. Adding their own special sound to the race are a couple of privately-entered Ferrari 512s whose exhaust noise can be described only as a shriek. Lola designer Eric Broadley, fed up with the way the Team McLaren cars allowed Revson and Hulme to keep accelerating through comers where Stewart was forced to slow, flew to Ed- monton from England this week to do some body modifications to the Lola. He hopes they will stabilize the front end and give more traction at the rear. ton Bruins their fourth straight exhibition defeat, 6-3, at Lon- don, Ont. and St. Louis Blues downed California Golden Seals 4-1 at Sudbury.Ont.

Knudson had a 77 after the first round Thursday, while rookie Dwight Nevil and George Archer matched early 67s and then sat back and watched them stand up for the first-round lead. Their four-under-par efforts put them one stroke ahead of a quartet tied at Har- ris, Larry Hinson, Mac Me- Lendon and Jim Ferriell. All of the leaders were early starters as a dusty afternoon wind sent late scores soaring. TREVINO SCORE HIGH Lee Trevino, the pre-lourney favorite and a late starter, man- aged only a 72, one-over-par on the Crawford County Club course. "I just wasn't thinking very said Trevino, winner of the American, Canadian and British Opens earlier this year. There was a large group at 9, two under par and two off the pace. Among them were Bert Greene, Jim Colbert and Mike Hill, all morning starters. Ken Fulton of Montreal came home in 70, Homenuik of Winnipeg, had 72, and Ben Kern of Toronto 73. J. C. Snead and Mason Ru- dolph, with Trevino the only members of the American Ryder Cup team that beat Great Britain last week who are competing here, each had a 73. Nevil, a one-time Dallas fire- man and now a San Antonio res- ident, hasn't come close to win- ning a major tournament in this, his first year on the pro .our. His best finish was fourth in last week's Quad Cities Open, a satellite event. and Guy Laflcur paced Mont- real. Left winger Mahovlich counted three goals while Laf- leur, the Canadiens' highly- touted rookie centre, had two goals and a pair of assists. Claude Larose, Phil Roberto, Guy Lapointe. Peter Mahovlich and Jacques Lcmaire were the other Montreal scorers. Rookie defenceman Darryl Maggs ?nd Jim Pappin were the only Hawks to beat Mont- real goaltendcr Rogatien Va- chon, who handled 27 shots. Montreal fired 38 shots at Hawk nelminders Tony Esposito and Gilles Meloche, who took over after the first period. HAS GROIN INJURY Canadiens' captain Henri Richard left the game with a groin injury in the first period. It was the third consecutive victory for the Canadiens', who defeated Boston in their two other pre-season starts. Bill Collins scored a pair of goals to lead Detroit to its third straight win. Other Detroit scor- ers were Mickey Redmond, Al Earlander, Ron Harris and Red Berenson. Wayne Cashman, Ivan Boldi- rev Johnny Bucyk tallied for the Bruins. Boston played without injured veterans Ted Green, Derek Sanderson and Ken Hodge. The Bruin goals were the first scored against Detroit in its three games. Wings, last sea- son's last-place finishers in the NHL East Division, shut out S't. Louis in their first two matches. At Sudbury, St. Louis won its first gjme despite taking 14 of 19 handed out. Blues scorers were Brit Solby, Frank St. Marseille, Gary Unger and Wayne Connelly while Gary Croteau tallied for the Seals, winless in five games. Seals' defenceman Carol Vad- nais was ejected in the third period for becoming the third player involved in a fight. The original combatants. Barclay Plager of the Blues and Seals' Walt McKechnie, were wres- tling at the blueline when Vad- nais grabbed McKechnie from behind. Detroit and Montreal have the best exhibition records of Eas Division teams while Philadel phia Flyers and Pittsburgh Pen- guins, both with three wins anc a tie in four starts, are the best in the West.

BASIL'S HOLY NAME SOCIETY FALL DANCE September 25th, 1971 p.m. GERMAN CANADIAN HAIL MIDNIGHT SUPPER REFRf.SHMENTS Music by the COMBOS By PAT SULLIVAN Herald Sports Writer Jack DeHeer and Ron Krikke, both of Lethbridge, have found a way to tour Eu- rope all expenses paid and do- ing the thing they enjoy doing the most, playing hockey. The two Lethbridge youths boarded a plane this morning bound for Amsterdam, Holland where they will play for the Dutch national team this win- ter. "Who would have said DeHeer, "that Krikke and myself would be playing in In- ternational hockey circles this For DeHeer it couldn't have come at a better time. "I'm still eligible to play ju- nior but who could turn down an opportunity like he said. Krikke, the younger of the two at 17, DeHeer is 19, is a very promising defenceman. As one of his former coaches put rt he has all the earmarks of be- ing e good one. Besides that he listens and learns." DeHeer played juvenile hock- ey last winter while Krikke toil- ed with the Midget Elks. For both it will be a great expe- rience. "I'm not sure I would take a whirl at it said De- Heer. "The idea of playing against teams like Sweden, Russia and others sort of scares me." "It will just be a matter of adjusting though I be added. Adjusting will play the big part of both youngster's suc- cess. International hockey has a whole new set of rules that neither are very familiar with. "It will take time for both of us to acquaint ourselves with SAJHL meets this Sunday Mr. V. Appleton, Governor of the Southern Alberta Juvenile Hockey League has called a general meeting for Sunday.

The meeting will lake place at Petrie's Pantry in Taber commencing at p.m. (he new said Krikke. "But I'm sure we'll do alright." The excitement hasn't really hit home with either DeHeer or Krikke but it will soon enough. "We could play as soon as Sunday or Monday, said De- Heer before leaving. "That doesn't give us much time.u The real tin-ill of it all will be the realization that without having played junior hockey both Krikke and De Hcer will play for a national team.
