i TUESDAY. APRIL 22. 1941 THE WINNIPEG TRIBUNE M PAGE.: 3 siDimsf mans lyjveirr K6 it ( m u IS PINION - HIM. MANNING i Gains Award SAYING It briefly: ... If Rangers win the national Junior hockey title, It is likely their coach, Baldy Northcott, will retire from an active role In the game. After the Saskatoon series, he complained his coaching duties had cost him three and four hours a day aU winter time he could not afford from sports equipment business. Detent for Rangers perhaps would prompt Baldy to try again for the Memorial Cup, but victory will leave him satisfied to retire. Nobody ever will convince Northcott that he has been more of a coach than an overseer for the Rangers this season. It is his theory the players have coached themselves, that he simply helped to keep them pulling together toward a common goal. Northcott is a self - effacing gent, conservative In speech, with a quiet sense of humor, an excellent athlete himself. His coaching system simply is to collect the most ol the best players and let them run their own show on the ice. Reticent, he never has put forth any claim for himself as a hockey mastermind. He seldom hat bothered to answer his critics, and there have been a few of these. The better hockey teams almost always win." he says about the the better teams Invariably possess the better players." He does not recall any coach who produced a great team from ordinary help, he says. Coaching, in Notthcott'i book, is getting the athletes properly outfitted and to the rink on time. AS thoroughly publicized as a camp follower can hope to be s Chauncey McQuarrie, a little gent who reports, the activities ol Sydney Millionaires for the Sydney Post - Record. He writes hockey the way he sees it but really! His colleagues are divided in the way they regard him those who commend his individuality and those who are disposed to take him down a notch or two. When Sydney lost a game to Montreal, McQuarrie wrote: "The refereeing from tne ayaney angie was lousy." .... V. A hi. wnen oyaney wuh, hc puoicu uw; decision: "About the reiereeing no beefs." The Montreal team didn't register highly In his regard. So he wrote: "Royals are a gutless lot" Formation of a mutual benefit organization for professional hockey players headlines post - season hockey items in the New York press. The proposal belongs to Jerry Geran, one - time pro and a Dartmouth man, who points to the auccess of baseball's counterpart the Association of Professial Ball riayers of America. Geran would levy the major lea guers $10 and the minor leaguers $7 a season as dues. He would have n annual benefit eame for the clavers' association in each league The funds would be collected and administrated you guessed itby r - orn The scheme is sensible enough, but from the angle of the proposer it Iooks jiko jusi wiuww Idea for teuing insurant. a, wwnnc&t hat nroduced many XT preat centra players.

Frank Nighbor, one of the greats, brought to light the distinc tions of anotner ciaimanu , Michhnr railed attention to "Doc Carson, of Toronto Leafs in the old days. "The most trouble I ever experienced with a centre man was with Carson," he said. "I used to make it a point to study the man I nlaved against, but I never did get to figuring Carson. He was the shiftiest player I ever was up against He'd double up on nu shifts for a time and then mix them up. He kept you guessing all the time. A great player and underrated." " Pretty soon It will be time to ' recall notice to the amazing record of Johnny McCreedy and Dick Kowcinak, the itinerant amateurs .from Winnipeg. If Sydney wins the Allen Cup, it will be the fourth consecutive national crown for McCreedy and Kowcinak Monarch juniors. Trail seniors, Klrkland Lake and Sydney. One of the pros out West was quoted to the effect tiese boys are no credit to ama teur hockey smiling aruuna rnimtrv after the highest salary r,ttBT the wav they do. What he must have meant was that the pros could use 'em if the price on their services didn't come so high. p t; Wit. J' Millionaires Net Five Late Goals REGINA, April 22. The most rabid Regina rooter had just about given up on the Rangers today. Sydney's scoring punch, the kind of power the West seldom has seen before, made the Millionaires prohibitive favorites to win the Allan Cup in straight games. Smashing five goals past Goalie Jimmy Henry In the last period after Regina had come from behind to tie the score at 3 - 3, the goal - crazed Sydneys last night recorded their second straight triumph in the three - of - five final, winning 8 - 3. It was the fourth straight game in which the Millionaires had scored eight goals. They won the last two games of their Eastern nnai wun jnomreai noyais uy o - o I si - m . w oyaneyijoai 3 Straight The Georgia Peaches Today Elizabeth Ann McKellar, daugh ter of Mr. and Mrs. D. S. McKeller, gained the gold medal figure skating award at Toronto Skating club, Saturday. The 18 - year - old local girl, former member of the Winn! peg Winter club and now a student at Branksome Hall, Toronto, won the unanimous approval of the judges. The only other Western Canada women skater to merit this award is Miss Mary Rose Thacker, Canadian and North American champion. Judges who approved unanimous' ly of Miss McKellar's performance were Miss Eleanor O'Meara, Miss Nora McCarthy and Dr. Alan Pricstman, a veteran Canadian judge. Prior to her departure east, Miss McKellar was prominent in local skating circles. She was runner - up to Miss Thacker in the senior club championship and gained junior and intermediate titles. She has skated In various carnivals in the United States and Canada. Last summer Miss - McKellar annexed bronze and silver medals at Lake Placid. Mrs. McKellar stated today a great deal of Elisabeth Ann's success is due to the early training ot Lew Elkin. She also paid tribute to others who aided in her progress. Mr. McKellar is at present out of the city but has been advised of his daughter's achievement and 8 - 3 scores and they copped the first game of the Allan Cup final! at Calgary last Saturday, 8 - 6. Defensively Strong Power wasn't the only quality shown by the Cape Breton outfit last night Millionaires drew nine of the 13 penalties and three times were short two men. Each time they defended brilliantly, with Goalie Bill Dickie one of the game's standouts. It was a closely - fought game for SO minutes. Regina never was ahead but until the last 10 minutes the Rangers never were more than a goal behind. Steve Latoskl's goal was the first period's only score. Garth Bush tied it up in the second period but Johnny McCreedy sent Sydney ahead again 21 seconds later. Then Jud Snell made it 3 - 1 but Stan Bladon cut the deficit with less than two minutes left. Johnny Kennedy tied the score at 2.46 in the third period but once again Rangers had scant time to enjoy the deadlock, Latoski netting his second goal 26 seconds later. Five Breakaways Regina had to go after goals then, and their power attacks backfired repeatedly. Grant Hall raced away for two goals, Johnny McCreedy one and Bobby Walton another. Sydney picked up 11 scoring points on its eight coals and Win nipeg products got nine of them. McCreedy, Hall and Latoski scored twice each, George Snell had a loal and an assist and Dick Kowcinak helped once. Walton got a goal and helped McCreedy on another. Bush and Bladon scored un assisted for Regina, with Mario and Cameron drawing assists on Ken nedy's third period counter. Rangers, with three junior - age players and another three playing their nrst season in senior ranks, tried all the way but they just didn't have it against the all - star aggregation from the Cape Breton mining town. Third game will be played at Saskatoon Wednesday. The fourth. if necessary, is scheduled for Regina Saturday and the fifth, if needed, at Saskatoon the following luesaay.

The confident Millionaires seemed to take the attitude the series was in the bag and It was just a ques tion of playing through the 60 minutes at Saskatoon Wednesday to make sure of the Canadian championship. - The young Rangers, wno put up a valiant battle against tne star - studded Eastern champions for 50 minutes, appeared extremely downcast and not one of them had a word to say as players tugged at skates, sweaters and pads. BIG Bill Gill, Sydney coach, talked for Millionaires and said his players wanted to finish off the series as quickly, as possible and get back to Sydney. I don't think Rangers are any set - up," added Gill, puffing his usual large cigar, "but I think we'll take them Wednesday." Gill remarked that Rangers were the victims of some tough breaks, adding Millionaires were a great third - period club and when they unloosed their power in the final 20 minutes, Regina had no chance to come from behind. Coach Freddy Metcalfe felt Rangers should have run up a lead of several goals in the second when they showed their best against the Eastern champions. , Sobie Has 200 Mark Eddie Sobie again is the In dividual champion of the Mercan tile Bowling league.

"I simply haven't found it possible to slug with the driver and hit 'em soft with the irons. To dtf that you'd simply have to develop two swings. So far I haven't been able to do so, but I'm still working." Jimmy continued, "I would advise the ooung golfer or any golfer for that matter not to try for great distance. You can hit the ball long up to a certain point and still be delicate with your irons, but when you start slugging with your driver, you're going to find that same tendency creeping Into your iron play."
