VOL. CLVI. No. 264 20 THE GAZETTE. MONTREAL, FRIDAY .NOVEMUEll 4. GANADIENS DASHED THROUGH FASTEST . PRACTICE OF YEAR Speed' Again Dominant Factor .in Play of Last Season's - Semi-Finalists ;. GAUDREAULT FITTING IN Former Local Amateur. Im ' ressiye--Esrke. Recruit s Defence Player, Popular With Railbirds . Canadians went through what "was probably the best workout the National Hockey, League club; has experienced ' this " season when ..' they travelled at toi speed during', the noon hour practice at the Forum yes-tAday, The workout, was witnessed by the customary' flock of fans, who left at the end of the practice entirely satisfied with the prospects. Martin Burke, defence player from Port Arthur, was again in the spotlight. Built on the lines of Dune Munro, of the Maroons, Burke plays a game that Is similar to the form of the former Canadian Olympic captain. He uses his weight fairly, but with telling effect, onrushlngr forwards frequently bouncing oft him in a manner which takes away speed. Leo Gaudreault. popular, amateur here for the past few seasons, fits into the picture . better with each practice and the impression of the Canadien followers Is that he will make the grade. Gaudreault, as followers of amateur hockey In Montreal well know, is a player of vast experience, who test when the need is greatest. It was this smart left winger who rallied the Eanque Canadienne Natiohale team In the pinches in their stiff tussles towards the championship of tho Bankers' League In past seasons. A fast, swerving skater, with an excellent shot, Gaudreault plays his position well and is capable of tying up bis check when forced back on the defensive. - . Jjeo Lafrance, from Duluth, possesses speed, but his . chief attribute is his ability to notch goals. He can pick the corners neatly, a trick which made him one 'of the most 4 feared shots in the old Central League and the American Association. It is apparent that Manager Cecil Hart will again rely on the catapulting speed of Ma players and the deft sticKhandllng of such stars as Morenz, Joliat and Pete Lepine to , carry the Canadiens to or near the top this season. Speed Is the dominant factor in the play of all the members of the team, with the exception of Martin Burke, who is - siower than his teammates, but who possesses a sufficiently high flight to serve the purpose. His steady blocking makes up for what he lacks in the way of dash and, with a group of fast forwards and defence men, Oanadiens can afford to use one or two players noted for their defensive ability as they have all the hockey, "sprinters' they need. - Manager Hart announced that the team would leave for Stratford on Monday night, and play there on Wednesday. Stratford is the home ,??W euMorenz- The eam will visit Kitchener, the home of Hains-Worth. and mnv lain, m ... nlbition game in that city. - : 1 ' - 1,000 Saw Leafs Practise , rr,2-- November 3. More than 1,00 railbirds attended the first public practice of he Toronto Maple Leafs at Arena Gardens today. The squad of players were divided into two teams, with a mixture of veterans and recruits on each side and peppy practice game was Indulged in. ,The side composed feif Roach, in goal; Day and Ramsay on the defence, with Primeau, McCaffery and Bailey on the front line, outscored their opposition 10 to 3. Clarke in goal; Smith and Gorman on the defence, and Carson, Patterson and Keeling on the forward line, composed the losing aide. The game was played under the new National Hockey League rules, with Alex. Romerll officiating. This resulted in numer-; ous' arguments cropping up concerning the offside rule, which has been changed considerably from last season. JACK KEARNS THREATENS Stated That" He Would Show Frank "Manny.

SPOILING O'FARRELL i Managership Proving" Too Heavy for Cards' Catcher St. Louis, Mo,' November S. Bob O'Farrell may not manage the St. Louis Cards in 1928, although he probably, will remain in a Cardinal uniform. President Sam Breadon announced today. , - - "I do not want ' to spoil a good catcher by .keeping on his shoulders the responsibilities of management," Breadon said. "Perhaps the management worries had something' to do with O'Farrell having an unfortunate year., "Measured by results which Is the only fair thing to .do, you must consider O'Farrell a successful manager, for he led the team through all its troubles and won more games than the club won in 1926. "But spoiling a great catcher, -the best in the business, is an expensive way. of having a leader. It js easy to get a manager. There are plenty of them. ' But it is difficult, almost impossible, to get a star player, to replace one who Is lost. For that reason .1 am uncertain as to whether f want O'Farrell to again have the Vorries of a manager." Bill McKechnie, O'Farrell's assistant last year, has been merit ioned as O'Farrell's possible successor.' a'HAGEN CONQUERED sHiT0MMY ARMOUR FOR SEMI-FINAL PLACE TO START WORK ON BASEBALL STADIUM chitect.
