Turned It away Just as he hud cleared thousands of other shots n his long years with the Flying 'ronchmen. This was a. hard night for the gallant little goalie. The big gloves —his stick and pads—they dwarfed ilm. Out. on .the cold ice of. the Montreal Foriini a temperature of 02 degrees rugud through Vczlna'B 135-pound body. The first period was nearly over. Georges kept telling himsvlf that the period—and then the game—would soon be over—and then he could rest, Vezina was a midget among tha glnnt hockhy players that, skimmed the those days of fast, aeven- man teams, and great players. His teammates and the powerful opposing players made Vezlna look like a child on the ice. But he was no child in the neta—he a wizard' on skates. He wa« an artist with n stick. .Vexinn turned away thosu blazing shots .with, a flick : of his wrist—a twist" of hlti stick—perhaps a little movement of his free hand. Georges Vezina went Into the nets for the first time as goalie when he was fifteen. He was forty- fovu' that night h« faced -Pittsburg at the Montreal Forum. That wus November '28th, 1S2S. In all those years, Vexina never had been known to drop to the ice to make a save. Georges could keep the rubber- out of the cage without that kind of a last-gasp try, While Vezina was with the Cixri- ndiens he sparked the Flying Frenchmen to five league titles- he led them to the Stanley cup championship twice—he took his place in th« nets In 3T3 straight ;ames. . That night In Montreal, Georges watched thc game flow back and orth—watched the Canadiens and Pirates battle In-front of him. The fever dulled him—made him feel ike a man watching the game from far away. But gtill .he'stoou n-front "of his cage and -guarded t like a watchdog. .

That was his last game—he died the following March. But that night at the' Forum after they carried out Georges Vexlna, the Ice wsu clear except .In front of his cage. On the ice were a stick and a pair of goalie's gloves. They.lay where Georges Vezina had dropped them. They lay there waiting for a guy who never came back. Looking down at them the fans who had watched Georges Vczina play for HO many years knew somehow that he wouldn't be back. Forrest Rills, N. Y,, July 3— .
