Trappers Offer Solution

NORTH BAY, Ont.— North Bay Trappers have come up with a compromise plan on a salary dispute which has sundered the Northern Ontario Hockey Association down the middle. The Trappers agreed to stick to a weekly salary limit of $2,100. but will cut their roster down to 16 players instead of a proposed 18. This clashes with the stand taken by Sudbury Wolves and Sault Ste. Marie, Ont., Greyhounds, who have been pressing for an increase in weekly salary scale to $2,400. Officials of Pembroke Lumber Kings plan to stand by the original limit set at an earlier meeting. At that meeting, Sault Ste. Marie, Mich., Indians were granted the $2,400 limit because a US immigration law prevents the team from lining up jobs for players. Trappers, in the meantime, intend to dress 15 players…

Ding-Dong Duel For Calder Cup Is Forecast

HERSHEY, Pa.— Another ding-dong scramble for Calder Cup playoff berths, with his Hershey Bears in the thick of the melee, is forecast by coach Murray Henderson.

This year only two amateurs are members of the Bear complement. Hershey is stronger in all departments, particularly on defense. Long John Henderson, who is heir…
