Stamp Pilot Currie Elated By Prospects

CALGARY, Alta.— Manager-Coach Frank Currie had good reason to be elated over the performance of his Stampeders against New York Rangers in two exhibition games. Only one goal separated the two clubs in the two games. Rangers won the one in Calgary (played at the old Victoria Arena) 2-1 and the teams drew 2-2 in Red Deer. The competition was fierce and the officials had their work cut out to prevent a donnybrook. Main reason for this is the competition for berths on two clubs. Prior to the two games, Currie had not signed a single player. The headaches of selecting his 13 players and goalie, including three rookies, have been piling up and the chore has been made no easier by the exhibitions. TRAINING NOTES: Stampeders had their biggest camp since turning professional.…

Day Denies Willie’s Outburst Gained Him Tryout On Team

(As Seen In The Toronto Telegram) ST. CATHARINES, Ont.— Willie Marshall just wouldn’t be kept out of the Maple Leaf hockey camp. The little man who threatened to quit the game if he wasn’t granted a tryout with his major league owners, is today trying out. General Manager Hap Day insists that the 154-pound Pittsburg ceutreman’s outburst last week, through The Telegram sports pages, had nothing to do with his promotion. “Willie just wanted assurance that he would be given the same chance as anyone else if he warranted a tryout with us,” said Day. “He has proved by his play since he went back to work that he warranted it.” Yet no matter how Willie made it, he did make it. Threatened To Quit Hockey He’s Only Curious There has probably never been a more concerted drive put…

Choice Of Dutchies For Olympics Hits OHA Setup

STRATFORD, Ont.— Selection by the Canadian Amateur Hockey Association executive of Kitchener-Waterloo Dutchmen as Canada’s representatives at the Olympic Games world hockey championship, at Cortina, Italy, Jan. 26 to Feb. 4, was almost a foregone conclusion, for, as so many put it—What team had a better right to the honor? They point out that the Dutchmen are reigning Allan Cup champions (The best senior hockey team in Canada), having won the title for the second time in two seasons. Naming of Kitchener for the Olympics serves to complicate the senior “A” Ontario Hockey Association setup somewhat, because the Dutchmen will miss about four weeks of the OHA schedule. The general opinion seems to be that the Kitchener team be granted a berth in the OHA playoffs and the opportunity to defend their…
