Cits A Little Baffled By OH A ‘Privilege’

TORONTO, Ont.— When the OHA, junior “A” clubs agreed a few weeks back to permit Frank Byrne’s Quebec Citadels four branch-to-branch imports instead of the customary two Byrne thought he was making great progress.

Each club wound up with a win, tie and loss. And this wasn’t the first time that Sid Abel’s Injuns had gotten into the hair of the Frenchmen for they had, in fact, grabbed five of their first nine league points at the expense of the Montrealers.
