B Called up by Canadian military of fiCials for four months' training, two 24-yair-old professional hockey players have returned from the United States and reported yesterday at Chatham, Ont., for duty, it was learned here tonight. The players are Phil (Red) Mc Atee and Hill Woodward, goal-tend er und forward, respectively, with r ridie Shore's Springfield Indians of the American Leaaue, rroressional turkey leagues h.'id Riven assurance t!it player with Ameneun ten ma abject to Canadian military laws would be sent to Canada when call ed, McAtee and Woodward are the f.rt to be railed. MeAte. formerly of Stratford. Onu, and Woodward, native of Hejirnt, Ont,, have been companions frr the lnxt four neajonn and form rlv prrf'irmed in the Michigan-On tarrt League. McAtee with Windsor and woodward with Stratford They DISTILLED, BLENDED AND CASUAL CLOSE-UPS I By THE CHATTER-BOX: There's a difference of eight to 10 degrees in the temperature of the ice used for hockey games and ice shows, with the performers in the latter spectacles skating on softer surfaces. . . . Bert Newbury, the Forum's superintendent and an expert on making Ice, says: "The skaters in the ice shows would break their necks on the fast Ice the hockey players like, so we give them 'warmer' ice." . . . The lighting power required for the Ice carnivals is vastly more than needed for hockey games. ... A hockey game at the Forum is brilliantly lighted by about 83,000 watts; a show like the Ice-Capades, with its colored lights and spots, has about 00,000 watts shining on it during perform ancet here, almost double the power necessary for hockey. . . . There are 73,000 watts directly over the ice; 20 Strobe lights bird's-eye lamps which total about 6.000 watts and 100-ampere carbon spot, lights, the equivalent of about 13,000 watte. . . . (Up in Toronto's Maple Leaf Gardens, they're equipped to give an ice enow 123,000 watts, but Bert says that's unnecessary).1. . . Coloring of lights and of the ice pattern for such shows always depends on the costumes, ao everything will blend. . . . Installing the lights and decorating the ice are the two most difficult assignments for the rink crew, but Newbury has a skilled and experienced crew; the basic members of which are eight ice-men, three engineers and Foreman Jim Hunter. . . . For the blue and white checkered diamond design on the Ice with the red border this time, about 1,200 pounds of paint 130 gallons were required. . . . That Job took about 10 hours, from the time work began until the first water was sprayed on the paint. . . . Subsequently, 10 flooding were applied to build up the surface and protect the pattern. . .' . Most important part of this tack is mixing the paint with a good binder ao the colors won't fun. . . . Setting up the ecenery for a show like the Ice-Capades takes only four to five hours, and is the easiest part of the preparations for the production from the standpoint of Newbury and his crew. Canadiens have called up Paul Bibeault from Washington to relieve the harried Bert Gardiner In the nets, after that 9-2 thrashing the club took at the hands of the usually low-scoring Chicago Black Hawks on Thursday night and Bibeault's return to the N.U.L, will be against the usually high-scoring Maple Leafs right in Toronto tonight, which is not such a pleasant outlook for a young goaler to face behind the weak defence that has characterized Canadiens this season. . . . It's been enough to give any goalie the jitters, with Red Goupille the only rearguard who has played consistently well for the Habitants to date. . . . We personally were never very high on Gardiner as a goaler last season we still think there are better netmind-ers but he started out not too badly this season, but has gone from bad to worse behind that "gates-ajar" defensive system. . . . Perhaps, too, it has not all been the fault of the defence, either, because in the main the forwards have not been skating two ways; they haven't been back-checking except in spurts. , . . The whole club needs to be tightened up and show more drive and spirit . . . True, it has suffered some tough breaks this season through injuries and dropping close decisions we can think of three games they lost by a whisker that they might easily have won. . . But when they get walloped 9-2, it's bad. ... It probably means that the team has lost confidence in Gardiner and Gardiner has lost confidence in the team, with disastrous results. . Maybe Bibeault's appearance on the scene may help, but the club will have to give him more protection than it afforded Gardiner if the kid or the team is ever to win. . . , New defensive strength would be as much to the point as a new goalkeeper. . . . They say Legs Eraser, of the amateur Canadiens, was asked if he would turn pro and play for the N.H.L. club in Toronto tonight and this is the reply he is reported to have given: "Frankly, I wouldn't. Not the way they're playing hockey and leaving the goaler at everybody's mercy. I don't blame Gardiner, and I wouldn't like to be in his shoes. I don't claim to be the greatest goalie in the world, but those kids with the Q.S.H.L. Canadiens make me look good; they give me real support because they're always skating back. If I went to the N.H.L. now, I'd Just be the next goat" Hector Racine, president of the Royals, just back from the minor-league convention at Jacksonville, Fla Is enthused over the local I.L. club's prospects for 1942, and over the training-camp set-up at Daytona Beach. The Royals are going back there to train after about a 10-year absence. . . . Hector says the tentative lineup is pretty well set for next season, but he can't name any namea yet. . . . The Royals president added that everybody worked hard In Jacksonville, but had a good time. . . . Every night at six o'clock all members of the Brooklyn organization met in Larry MacPhail's auite and reported on the day's doings. . . . Hector and Lt.-CoL Romeo Gauvreau, vice-president of the Montreal team, flew from here to Washington to Join the rest of the Dodger party, and continued the journey south by train in a private car. . . . The team of Racine and Gauvreau beat the team of MacPhail and Leo "The Lip" Durocher at bridge, by eight points on the very last rubber of the trip . . Commented Hector, "MacPhail and Durocher play a very tight game; they're conservative bidders and won't run risks. But I'm glad we beat 'em or Durocher would have been broadcasting his bridge prowess all over Jacksonville on his own private loudspeaker system." . . , Racine, by the way, has a good word for Burleigh Grimes, newly-appointed manager of Toronto Leafs who piloted the Royals in 1939. . . . Said Hector, "I think Burleigh will do a good Job at Toronto. . . . I saw him in Jacksonville and talked with him. He seems to realize the mistakes he made in this league before, and altogether, he's a different man." Paul Haynes, coach of the Q.S.H.L. Canadiens, may move Glenn Harmon back to the defence when Smiley Meronek recovers from a knee injury and returns to action. . . .

Atlantic City 0. 600 Ski Enthusiasts Are Present ForOpenFunctiononMountRoyal Under normal circumstances, the ParkfTohoggan and Ski Club up on Mount Royal can hold about 300 persons, but somehow last night nearly double that number managed to wedge their way into the building for tha first open skiers' party of the year. To entertain these 600 enthusiasts an elaborate program had been arranged which started promptly at 8.30 o'clock and which featured the great new skiing film of Hannes Schneider. "The Ski Chase." Schneider's movie had been widely publicized as the last word in ski film production, and judging by the enthusiasm with which it was received by the packed crowd these advance notices were not exaggerated. Other offerings included a movie entitled "Skiing in the Laurentians," as submitted by the Canadian Pacific Railway, along with a few glimpses of last year's Quebec Kandahar as taken by Ben Sauriol of the Totem Club. And just so everybody would keep abreast of world affairs at the same time as they were enjoying their skiing, a brief newsreel also was shown. The purpose of the skllng-bec was not purely diversion because all roceeds taken in at the front door y Charlie Black will be devoted to the Laurentian Zone first-aid committee. Charlie is the chair- jman of that committee and he had GOME FROM BEHIND TO RECORD 4-3 WIN Cornwall Strikes for Two Fast Goals in Last Minute , of Second Period .

The win put Cornwall two points up on the Ottawa squad, Montreal Royala, who were defeated at Quebec by Quebec Aces, and the Aces, who now share the runner-up spot A brilliant second-period rally aced the Cornwall team to its trilling win. Trailing by 2-1 with less than a minute of the middle session left. Flyers rapped in two foala to take a lead they never ost Each team scored in the hard- filayed third frame featured by Ot-awa's desperate offensive to try to get ba6k in the fight. While there were no two-goal men on the night's play, Cliff Maundrell led the snipers with a goal and a pair of assists. Cornwall's other markers went to Punch Im-lach, Lloyd Allsby and Jimmy Drummond. Don Grant, Stan Pratt and Gordic Poirier were the Ottawa marksmen. Ottawa gained an early lead when Grant sped in to take Albert Le-may's pass to beat Dion at 4.34 of the opening period. Less than three minutes later Imlach potted home Maundrell's rebound to knot the score. Z GOALS IN IS SECONDS. Senators went in front again at 3.18 of the middle session. Corn wall finished the frame with a great drive, picked up two goals in 13 seconds and walked off with a 3-2 lead. Ailsby got the first tally of the rally at 19.15 and Maundrell scored on a solo rush at 18.30. Jim Drummend put Flyers In front by 4-2 early in the third and Senators got desperate and threw all they had at Cornwall. Gordie Poirier gave them hope when he scored at 13.30 but the challenge ended there. Senators played five forwards in the final five minutes, but they could not get the equal izer. Tha teams: .

Instead, he sold exactly 551 first-aid buttons during the night and he's still sure that some slipped by the front door without him s Dotting them. This means that this year the first aid committee has the best sendoff it has had in years. Last season, by means of canvassing on the trains, about 4,500 badges were pinned on various people's arms while this yeVr before the season has even properly begun 551 have already been sold and there are possibilities of more functions of a similar nature later on. Black , also revealed that this money could not have come at a better time. Just yesterday word came through from the uovern ment that the Laurentian Zone could put signs on the highways this year warning motorists about ski trails, and the cost of these signs must be borne by the Zone. While the hich noint of the even ing was Hannes Schneider's ski manoeuvres in the movies, Jack Houghton, the chairman of the Laurentian Zone, made a brief address. As did Doug Mclntyre. chairman of the ski patrol committee, and Black. The affair was sponsored by the Park Toboggan and Ski Club, the Totem Ski Club and the J. B.

Hockey Fundamentals, the moving picture produced by Morrie Bruker, with Eddie Gronau, vice-president of the Q.A.H.A., as co-producer, is an instructive and interesting movie showing outstanding players in the various phases of the sport. The 400-foot film was previewed last night before members of the press and the "world premiere" of the picture indicated that this instructional medium should be a beneficial one for the younger players of the province. Numerous showings are now being planned. It was estimated that it required 165 hours to make the film. Coach Dick Irvin appears in the movie along with several members of his National Hockey League Canadiens, including Charlie Sands, Ray Getliffc. Jack Portland, Cliff Goupille. Terry and Kenny Rear-don and Bert Gardiner. The six-minute film covers all phases of the game including the type of stick to use, equipment, stick-handling, body checking, goal-keeping and skating, winding up with a few suggestions on sportsmanship. Norman Dawe, president. Eddie Gronau, vice-president and Al-phonse Therien, secretary-treasurer of the Q A.H.A., George Slater, president of the Q.S.H.L. and Norman MacKay. executive of the Q.A.H.A., were among those present at the preview along with members of the press.
