Fielder, Fashoway Prove Tobin Made Right Move

CHICAGO, Ill.— Guyle Fielder and Gordie Fashoway, two sensations in the Pacific Coast circuit last season, appear to have no futures as major leaguers. They were purchased from New Westminster of the western loop by Detroit last spring for a reported $40, 000 in players and cash, but the whole deal has fizzled miserably. The judgmbent of General Manager Bill Tobin of the Chicago Black Hawks, who originally wrote the pair off as NHL prospects and sold them to New Westminster for $2, 500 each, has thus turned out to be very sound.

WESTERN HOCKEY LEAGUE

Shut Out Bill Brennan, Saskatoon goalie, turned in the first shut out of the season when the Quakers defeated the Calgary Stampeders 6-0 in Saskatoon last week. Hat Trick Ken Ullyot, New Westminster forward, turned in the first hat trick of the season recently when he scored three goals against Vancouvers’ goalkeeper, Emil Francis. Saskatoon Win Two, Tie One To Lead Pack SEATTLE, Wash.— The Western Hockey League was only five days old in its 1952-53 campaign but already last season’s playoff champs, Saskatoon, has jumped into an early lead, winning two and tieing one of its first three games for five points, to make the experts look good who predicted a first place finish for Doug Bentley’s Quakers in the pre-season poll conducted among scribes and sportscasters.
