Saturday, February 13, 1971 Ths Ottawa Journal El MacCABE SAYS: A Weekend Roundup iCJ Of 3dds andfEnds, Just Stuff and Nonsense For weeks now, the Canadian Ski Association has been fixed by the unnerving stare of Imminent bankruptcy, and it was considerably more than an idle threat 1 They didn't have any more , money, and they didn't have high hopes of getting enough, soon enough, to continue their program. However, alpine program director AI Raine said last night from Quebec that the crisi9 is over. He didn't know where the money came from or how much, but he aays his understanding, from CSA President Scott FenneU, is that they now have ample money to continue. . ; There had been a report that the national team activities would be cut after this weekend's meet at Mont. Ste. Anne. Now, Ratne, says, they're continuing along the campaign in United States events, following the world tour. v , . . ! .. '. Had Betsy Clifford been In contention for the World Cup, she would have been sent back overseas', when the international circuit moved. But she isn't a contender, and barring unexpected heroic deeds in the , next couple of weeks, she won't be, and so she won't be going back overseas. But, according to Al Raine, it won't be on account of a lack of funds. ' ' ' IMAGINED SLIGHT , . (V There are those now Jumping up and walling because Satchel Paige's plaque in baseball's Hall, of Fame will not be in the regular hall, but in a separate spot being set up to honor old timers from the defunct Negro Leagues. They imagine they see, of course, the evil noggin of segregation rearing its. horny head. The fact Is, the rules of the hall specify: 10 years in the major leagues, Paige didn't have them. He had foun Also, in the leagues in which he played, there were very few records kept, and innacurate statistics. Baseball is a game of statistics. The Induction of Paige into the hall is an acknowledgment of his great skills, and something of en apology from baseball for. sins past. But they can't put him into the regular, hall, according to the rules. Jackie Robinson and' Roy Cam-pattella are Hall people of the first water, and Willie Mays. Hank Aaron and Ernie Banks will be ... so the segregation bleat is hardly valid. 1 .. See where the Royal and Ancient sent Alan Shepard a reminder of a rules violation during his golf- on-the-moon first? There has been no mention so far of what brand of a ball be used, perhaps deliberately. If it is made public, you can see the ads now. Will Brand X go? Farther than any golf ball ever ' to the moon, please! Rivermead Golf Club Superintendent Phil Glover Is in Denver,-Colorado, attending the annual Interna tional Turfgcass Conference and Show .. ; ..The Quebec Golf Association has announced that Claude Dufour, from Islesmere, is Quebec's golfer of the year with a stroke average of 72.75 for the required eight of 1. rounds. Mickey Batten of Beauchateau was second and Guy Cardinal was third. Top Ottawa swinger in the list was Rivermead's Glen Seely. He was sixth. Next Saturday and Sunday, the, -Winter Carnival car racing on ke goes as scheduled at Dow's Lake with Labatt's providing a prize of J 1.000. . . . ; CALLERS HAD ANSWER . A couple of days ago, dealing with some old time ads, one of them describing a house, we mentioned a house had a "kitchen and S.K." and added, whatever that is. A number of people called to answer.' It's a summer kitchen. That was the ,term in the tonler neighborhoods. , . Elsewhere, It was more famrrlar as' the back shed. ....

Charles O. Flnley, who owns the Oakland Athletics and serves as a constant embarrassment to the other owners, is not plumping to change the- rules of baseball to allow a walk on three balls, instead of four. He says it would "speed up the game and put more runners on base." Gump Worsley, sCill kicking them out at 41, has a basic contract of $38,000 a season with $500 extra for tach win, $250 for a tie, and an extra C-note for a shutout. ... A notoriously bad air traveller, Gump says If teams still travelled by train, he'd play until he was 99. But even his terror' in the air doesn't rob him of his Wit. One time, years, ago, we were flying from Chicago to Montreal, and ran into some rough air just after the meals were served. Food and drink flew about, but Gump wasn't partaking. He was bent over, head between his knees. The Stewardess came on the PA system and apologized for the "unexpected bump, and Invited pas-senegrs to submit their cleaning bills to Air Canada. From his hunched position, Gump yelled: "Does that include underwear?" ... - And before we forget! A lady called yesterday to inquire about a hair treatment we ran yesterday, quoted out of The Journal of 1916. To her, and all others who might be tempted, we ran the item for ks novel value, not as a recommended procedure. It might work, but) we don't know. So you're on your own with that one.

' " q SYDNEY, Australia (Reu-ter) The England players hit back after Australia had shot them out for 184 on the opening day of the seventh and final cricket test here, grabbing twowickets for 13 runs by the close. Hamilton Convinced 67s on Top to Stay , By CLEM KEALEY Ottawa (7s own only a piece of first place in the OH A Junior A Hockey League' standings but. talk to the Hamilton Red Wings and they'll tell you they're in a league by themselves. ,'. j . . v ' Following Friday night's polished 7-J win over, the Wings before another standing room only gathering of S.tOl at the Civic Centre, Hamilton owner Nick Durbano said: " "I predicted In the first month of the season Ottawa was the strongest club in the league. Now I know it." Billy Harris, the graying ex-NHL star, who Is the fourth coach Durbano has hired since he bought the club last cummer agreed: "They're strong , . . real strong," Harris admitted. "Tuesday night they beat us 3-1 in Hamilton and they beat us with great goaltending. Tonight they just plain beat us and in both games I really felt my kids played pretty sound hockey."- '. . Even Hamilton defenceman Billy Forrest, who fears he has a touch of mononucleosis and viewed last night's game from the press box says the. players' feeling is the same: - "67s have much more balance than Peterborough and there's no way' we want any part of them in the first round of the playoffs. I believe Murray Wilson is one of the toughest forwards to handle and he hasn't played against us in these games," Forrest said. A lot of other teams are. of the same opinion. A story out of Montreal last week said it'd only be a matter of time ' before 67s overhaul the Petes. So a lot of teams are buying the argument but Peterborough . isn't one of them.. Peterborough doesn't lose at home and seldom on ' the road. And while they're not a flashy outfit they are methodical and plodding and their persistence pays dividends. . Hamilton came m here last night wedged in sixth place in the standings with flickering hopes of overtaking MKarlies for fifth place. They left with no hope if you listen to Durbano and Harris. They also. vame here with two goalies, physically capable of tarting but neither was physicallv capable of showering at the finish. Wings played the last '40 seconds with defenceman Mike Healey In the crease and Harris didn't make the move with the hopes of getting a goal. The face-off . was in the Hamilton zone and Mike Vei-sor, Wings regular goalie, skated over to the bench and Harris said: ' "Tears were coming down his face he was in so much pain. He 'needs at least two, maybe three weeks rest and he's ging to get it. I want him balthy for the playoffs. Veisor started the game but re-injured an old groin injury making a split save hi the second period and Harris took him- out. His replacement was an Indian boy named Merle Pegahmagabow and 'if that doesn't look like a typographical error It'll do until Ell Grba rejoins the Yankees' pitching staff. In any event Blake Dunlop tore In on Merle (everybody's on a first name -basis with him. even his enemies) and caromed a shot off the top of his mask. The puck creased his forehead and banked into the corner for Dunlop's second goal of the night and his 31st Summary Pint PtrM 1 Hamilton, Moheod (1 - HMliy, Moxey) ....
