Fresh from a victory and a tie in Saskatchewan earlier in the week, the Broncos travel to Medicine Hat tonight to meet the Tigers in their third Western Canada Hockey League exhibition game. "We're coming right said Bronco coach Earl Ingarfield Friday. "The boys loooked very sharp against Regina in the 6-1 win." Broncos opened their exhibition season with a 4-4 draw in Saskatoon. For tonight, at least, Ingarfield will dress 20 players. "The limit is 19 but Medicine Hat said we could dress add- ed Ingarfield. Of the 20 players who will dress tonight, two will be netminders, Ingarfield will use all six defencemen still in camp and four complete lines. "We'll get another real good look at some of the rookies he said. "The Tigers have a big, tough club so the fellows will have to work hard." It was announced at Friday's workout that Bryan Trottier, a three-year veteran of the Broncos, would be the captain of the club for the coming year. Trottier, a real leader, will be aided by assistant captains Dean Samis, Ron Delorme and Ben Richardson. "I'm going to start Lome Molleken tonight and back him up with Bill Ingarfield said. Rollie Bouton, the third netminder in camp Friday will return to Prince Albert and play there. However, as Ingarfield pointed out, he is going there on an automatic recall basis. "If we need him, he'll be back." Defencemen Samis, Richardson, Darcy Regier, Doug Gillespie, Don Johnson and John Lutz will form the front wall in front of netminders Oleschuk and Molleken.

The argument resulted from Perry's statement that he had demanded more than Robinson for next year's American League baseball contract. Several players witnessed the argument and said the pair would have come to blows if manager Ken Aspromonte had not interceded. Earlier, the In- dians announced that Aspro- monte had been fired, effec- tive at the end of the season. Robinson is regarded as the likely choice to succeed Aspromonte and become the major league's first black manager The incident occurred in the Indians' clubhouse before a game with New York Yankees was called because of rain.

WIN -I'M Wilt IN1 TO EAT MY SUPPER NOW Team Canada coasts to easy triumph, victory of very little benefit to club HELSINKI (CP) Some Team Canada players agreed Friday night they received lit- tle benefit from their 8-3 vic- tory over the Finnish national team in the first of two exhibi- tion hockey games designed to get Canada prepared for the second half of its international series with Russia. Bobby Hull, who had two as- sists in the somewhat casual workout, said little benefit re- sults if a team isn't forced to go at full speed, "but it gave everybody a chance to play." Canada scored three goals in the first 11 minutes, then promptly fell asleep. Coach Billy Harris admitted at a news conference that the players were looking beyond the exhibition here and the test in Gothenburg, Sweden, Sunday night. "It's unfortunate this game is overshadowed by the Rus- sian said Harris, who praised the ambition of the Finns but was surprised at the lack of physical contact. The best workout was re- ceived by Gilles Gratton, young Toronto Toros net- minder who played the first two periods and blocked 32 shots as Canada opened a 4-1 edge after 40 minutes. Much of Canada's spark dis- appeared when Gordie Howe and Ralph Backstrom left the game after the first period, Harris used them because he said Finnish fans have a right to see Canada's stars. Canada played well only in the first 10 minutes and the fi- nal 12 or so. while the am- bitious Finns played better than expected. Bobby Hull, who earned two assists in his brief appearances, said after the game that Canada received little benefit from the exhibi- tion contest. "You don't do yourself much good if you only go at half speed." Hull played the first two periods along with linemates Lacroix and Johnny McKenzie. Gordie Howe sparked his line to a goal on each of its first two shifts but didn't play after the first period. Rested for Canada were de- fencemen Rick Smith and Paul Shmyr and goaltender Gerry Cheevers. Houle and J. C. Tremblay had been expected to rest but both played. Canada needed only 47 sec- onds before Backstrom was left alone at the side of the net to pop a short shot past Fin- nish netminder Lasse Kiili. Six minutes later. Backstrom and Mark Howe combined to leave Gordie Howe with an open net. Lacroix completed the first- period scoring when he took Hull's pass and sped in alone on Kiili. Oksanen fired a hard shot past Gratton during Marty Howe's penalty in the second period before Hull and Brad Selwood teamed to set up Lacroix for his second goal. In the third period. Ahokainen connected with a backhander and Lindslrom drilled home a shot from the right point. The heiow capacity of about because tickets reached a maximum price of almost in this inflation-struck SLOW START VIENNA Susan MacDonaSd of West Van- couver made a slow start Friday, finishing 14th among 20 competitors in compulsory exercises in OIF Vienna Cup international figure skating competition. Sylvia Fontaine of Switzerland placed first with Manuela Beflele of Italy second and Austrian Bngsile Kalk Jhird for a few moments that the Finns could upset Canada, but Houle turn- ed the game around when his shot from a bad angle slipped between Kiili's pads. Defenceman Rick Ley swooped through the goal crease to pull Kiili out of posi- tion for Mahovlich's first goal, then Webster took Mark Howe's pass and stickhandled past the young Finnish goaltender.

League president Bryan Couling said the league has exhausted all options available in trying to have the Spokane franchise approved by the B.C. Amateur Hockey Association.

He said he hopes Spokane will seek entry into the league for next season, and said approval for a 1975-76 Spokane franchise may be sought at the BCAHA semi an- nual meeting in Vancouver this December.
