It's -time we stood on our rights. Our league got the short end ' of the stick in the Sharpley-Garcia case and, we won't allow that to happen this time." ".. . . '.-.. Sharpley, from. Windsor, was property of London Knights - and Garcia, from . Toctnto ' was "drafted by St. Catharines Black Hawks.

"As far as we're concerned 'there is no question that the boy is the property ( of Kitchener Rangers. He was here today at our draft ... in fact he's here right now.

I rllS.A park another controversy area of $20,000. - -, The Gingras case isn't the only hassle Festivals have to deal with as a result of yesterday's proceedings. - : . In the middle of last season, Hull traded goaltender Michel Charbonneau to Shawinigan Dynamos in exchange for a first round draft choice. Charbonneau never did report to Shawinigan and, yesterday, Dynamos contended that the deal was annul ed. "We've been assured by the league executive that Sha-w i n 1 g a n must honor their commitment," said Grant Dynamos selected Serge Bon-ami as the first round, so the league will have to decide if Bonami, a centre, goes , to Hull or Shawinigan. Overall, Festivals drafted six minor midgets and 23 overage midgets. Gingras was their first pick (fifth overall) in the minor midget draft Their next selection, in the second 'round, and 14th overall, was Doug Ross who played with St. Lambert Junior B's In the Ri-chelleu Valley Hockey League. ! ' " Hull's third pick was Doug Sulliman, from ' Glace Bay, N.S. and he was 21st overall. Their final three picks, in order, were Richard Vezina, from Boucherville, Michel Charron and Michel Lusig- nan. Those last two players Sbrel picks QUEBEC (Special) -There were 223 players drafted by the Quebec Major Junior Hopkey League's 10 teams The deliberations stretched on for an agonizing three hours, but if anyone dozed off during the boring procedure, he was quickly revived when Sorel Black Hawk general manager Rodrigue Lemoyne stepped to -the microphone in the 10th round. "Sorel Black Hawks select Pierre Larouche from Pittsburgh Penguins," intoned Le-moyne, with a straight face. - If Lemoyne wasn't laugh-ing, though, everyone else in the room was. Larouche, who broke the QMJHL scoring record two seasons ago, just completed a brilliant rookie season with' the National Hockey League Penguins. Lemoyne, a lawyer, in fact negotiated Larouche's six figure contract with Pittsburgh. i.ju.'Ws'i Draft m -I'll What's a tme Geraise Pfflsesler ddiiigio aiatlfflfe boMe? , Meister Pils is a true German pilsener, brewed in Germany by the famous Henninger Brewery, brewers since 1880. Now Henninger is Frewing Meister Pils in Ontario in its small independent brewery in the same time-honoured tradition that has made it the most celebrated barley and hops we use. It's also the longer time it takes to brew and the different way in which we brew it. But mostly, it's because of the Meister Pils yeast. More than - anything, yeast is what gives a beer its distinct char , The light tisfiimi) first . Toronto, at almost exactly the same moment, Kitchener was selecting the. same boy, a 15-year-old centre, as their first pick of the OHA draft Festivals, with the backing of their league, maintain that Gingras, a native of Temis-I kaming, is eligible to be drafted in Quebec only. "We're ready for a fight," said Festivals' owner Paul Grant last night, "but I don't-think it will be a long one. "There's an agreement be- tween the two leagues to eliminate just this type of thing and as far as we're pon-cerned we're clearly in the right" In Toronto, though, Ranger' general manager Ted Maid shoes 'throughout Jpad - 728 so soui shop y 578i y i v: . ..... w ji -r-- ?; . , y iMS'J ji, y. vmm .j i . : ... -mmm' wvz& of all our beers. With one small difference. In Germany we use a traditional pilsener bottle. Here we use the same fat little bottle everybody else uses. But inside, yotfil find a true German pilsener with a distinctive light taste. In part, it's because of the very particular kind of acter and taste. And the yeast we use to brew Meister Pils here in Canada is cultured from the origii ! pilsener yeast and is actually flown over in a special jet service from our Frankfurt brewery. Just as we have done since 1880, when we brew Meister Pils we allow nature to take its course. We allow it to carbonate naturally We never try to speed the natural brewing process. So the Meister Pils you can enjoy here js exactly the same as the Meister Pilsin Germany. Except for the bottle. - Meister Pils is at your brewers retail outlet for just a few cents more than regular beers in , six packs, 12s arid 24s. Prost! "' ' :.

Next Hull selected Denis Le'febvre from St. Eustache of the Montreal Metrolpolltan Junior B League, followed by Brian Doyle (James Ling High School, Montreal). Hull's sixth overage midget pick was Mike Parker from Rochester, N. Y. Festivals also took another American, Larouche onotony No one was quite.- $ure whether Lemoyne was joking or not but he insisted the selection was bonafide. As in . the case of every draft choice, it cost Black Hawks -$100. Larouche still has a season of junior eligibility remaining. He played his junior ho:key in Sorel. "Anytime he wants to come back to us he's quite welcome," deadpanned Lemoyne. .
