' A alders worked out Wednesday, the slopes carried only four feet of snow and were fit for racing only because of grooming carried out by hundreds of workers in the last six weeks. - Meanwhile, Al Ralne, Canadian head coach, said there will be a few changes following the resignation of Bob Fugere, his "B" team coaqh, but his program will remain "pretty well the same." In another development. Rod JT&a-HivJriseft at east, said he will leave the Canadian ski team this year and may well take a shot at professional racing in Europe and the United States next season. Hebron, 27, a team member since 1959 and a Canadian Olympic skier, gave the word Wednesday in an interview on IBM era of the World Cup meet, which features more than 100 skiers from H countries. Among competitors is Karl Schranz. 31, from Austria, who can clinch his second straight world title by placing in the top six in the slalom. Both halves of this event will be run Saturday.'

The race slopes have been closed to recreational skiers for two weeks. By today, crews had used more than two tons of salt to keep snow on the courses and expected to use perhaps two tons more by Sunday. The salt forms an icy crust that slows the melting of the snow and makes it stand, up better for skiing. The only run today is the first half of the men's giant slalom. The second half, and the single run of the women's day. the men s siatom win ne Saturday and the women s aunday. Schranz had 146 cup points, six ahead of Patrick Russel, 23, the slalom great from France, and Gustavo Thoeni, 18, Italy's surprise of the year on the world circuit. Remaining World Cup meets are at Heavenly Valley. Calif., March 7 to 8, and Voss Bergen. Norway, March 13 to 15. In national standings, France leads with 1,469 points, followed by Austria with 755 and the U.S. with 503. Canada is seventh with 116. Austria won last year, followed by France and the U.S. In women's cup standings, Michele Jacot of France leads with 170 rvoinU followed bv teammates Francotse Macchi, 145, and Florence Steurer, p2 :etsy-Xnifford-of-Ot- J tawa is seventh with 101 points. Miss Clifford, 16-year-old winner of the women's slalom at Val Gardena, Italy, earlier this month, shrugs off the press releases that say she carries Canada's hope at this World Cup meet "I don't even think about it," she said Wednesday. "I just Wot it out of my mind." She was third in the women's slalom in the World Cup meet at Jackson Hole, Wyo.,'last weekend. Hebron, out of action since he broke his left leg at Val Gardena, is the second team 'member to announce retirement plans. Gerry Rin-aldi. of Kimberley, BC, did so after the Val Gardena races. Hebron, whose home base Is Grouse Mountain here, said his decision is not connected with the resignation Sunday of Fugere, the Canadian B team coach from Ste. Agathe, Que. Fugere was at odds with Raine and A team coach Gilbert Moliard. He apparently felt that Raine and Moliard, two demanding coaches, were pressing some of the skiers too hard.

For a start, said Raine, Moliard will be given more authority over senior skiers. Said Raine: Til also oversee the whole thing and be genera manager." Hebron, plagued by falls or injury at several key points in his career, said his problem is that his international standing this year has not been good enough to win favorable starting positions next season. Td be starting 90th or something in a race next year and it would be an uphill battle . . . I'll probably go in for a couple of profes sional races next year in the Snow conditions on Grouse Mountain have had officials worried for weeks; World Cup courses have been changed several times.

Sooners Hope to Form Super Junior League Ottawa So'oners have launched plan to form a super football league aimed at giving junior football in Easternanadanewjease An lifA on life. The proposed league, similar to the Western Canada setup, would embrace single teams from Ottawa, Toronto and Hamilton and possibly two entries from Montreal. The proposal follows in the wake of Vanier Vikings' decision Tuesday night to amalgamate with Sooners this year. Viking general manager Austin Neville cited lack of available junior football talent and spiralling operation costs as the major reasons for the fusing of the two clubs. Sooners' general manager Jim Maxwell said the proposal was inevitable. "We feel if junior football Is to survive we'll have to operate on the basis of one team per city," he said. "Our ultimate goal is an organization like the Eastern Football Conference." Maxwell said the one team per city concept would help to lure professional aid back into junior clubs who in return could reimburse the Jen Elliott Reaches Seniors Curling Final The final of the Ottawa lone of the Eastern Ontario Ladies' Curling Association seniors championship was scheduled this afternoon at the Carieton Heights Curling Club.

"If we can get responsible people involved we could sell junior football like OHA: 7" Junior "A" hocKey," he saidr Rejection of the super league would see Sooners playing in a league with Verdun and Notre Dame de Grace, both of Montreal. Sooners, even with two Eastern Canada championship teams in the past two years, have lost money. Word out of Southern Ontario has it that Oakville Colts will not build a team this year and there is a strong possibility Windsor will also call it quits. Maxwell said four or five "very weak" teams operated In Toronto last year and Toronto Argonauts gradually lost interest because teams were not producing players. In Montreal, both Verdun and Notre Dame de Grace have announced they will be competing again this season. In a meeting with Montreal Alouettes' general manager Red O'Quinn last week, O'Quinn pledged more help to both teams as part of Alouettes' drive to resell football in Montreal.

Although Holtby resigned as coach at the end of last season, he still considers himself part of the organization and has adopted a "I'll wait and see" attitude for the coming season. Maxwell said university football has cut heavily into junior football in recent years and is partly responsible for the reduction of teams. During the junior football boom years In Ottawa about 15 years ago there were four teams operating here.
