Saints Like To Cop Close Ones With Extra Goal

ST. PAUL, Minn.— If it is true that the team winning the close ones win championships then the standings in the United States hockey league are due for a big shuffling.

Only teams showing an advantage in the close ones are Kansas City and Milwaukee. The Sea Gulls who rest in the cellar, are batting .500 with two one goal victories and the same number of losses.

Sea Gulls Change Sunday Night Games To Saturday

MILWAUKEE, Wis.—The Milwaukee Sea Gulls, the Chicago Black Hawks’ United States league farm club, have announced that two Sunday night home games have been changed to Saturday. “They say Milwaukee is a Saturday night town and we want to see if the crowd is any larger ton the altered dates. It’s just an experiment, but if there is a good noticeable difference we’ll probably try to have as many home games changed to Saturday night as possible,” Reg Hamilton, the Gulls’ business manager said last week.
