It might develop however, there was more than appeared on the surface, nov, that Blair and Ernie Goman, manager of the Kitchener team, are squabbling over the services of defenceman Ralph Hosking, who was loaned to Whitby as a replacement for defenceman Harry Sinden, who, along with three other Whitby players, joined Kitchener for the Olympic tourney.
