Square Dance Fans To Attempt Hockey On Manitowaning Ice
by Wally Harasyn - February 2, 1961
Friday evening will offer one of the season's greates t arrays of hockey talent (?????) when the Little Curren t Squarenaders take on the Manitowaning Hay, lofters at 9 :15 p.m. in the Manitowaning Arena. The game will clima x the Annual Carnival.'"
In the goal for Little Current will be Bob Hocken. His f orward wall will consist of such stars as Austin Bateman , John Wilkin, Glen Pringle, Glen Leeson, Art Baird, Murche e Wright, Ev. Morphet, Len Campbell, Dave Glover and Doug T racy.
At press time our scouts were unable to obtain a complet e roster of the Haylofters, but it is rumored that Ed. Thi rd, Bill MacDougal, Art Moggy, Ron Mac Dougall, Joh n Jaggard, Ted Daigle, Owen Maguire, Glen McDonald, Jac k Witney and Calvin Cowan, plus others who are able < i>, to (a) find their skates, and (b) stand up after t he skates are on , will represent Manitowaning. The of ficials will be composed of feminine members of the club s who will probably take great delight in sending friend h ubby to the "sin bin". The remaining wives will ta ke over the cheer- leaders' chores.
It is rumoured that the game was conceived by Doug Tracy t o promote some business during a dull season. We wish hi m well in his spectacular venture. Since this will possibl y be the last appearance this season for both clubs on eit her ice or the dance floor, everyone is urged to see thi s special event. Come early - there are no guarantees as t o how long the game will last.

Ice Carnival Results
A large crowd turned out last week to attedn the Ice Carni val which was very well presented. The figure skating clu b realized a" total of $97. in paid admissions.
The Little Current and Manitowaning Squarenaders are to b e congratulated for their performances during the challeng e match played at the carnival
Such visiting "stars" like., Doug Tracy, Glen Leeson, Gle n Pringle, Dave Glover, Austin Bateman and goaler Bob Hocke n gave the crowd a good performance not only in their hock ey ability but also their comedy antics. Some of the high lights of the match included: Giant killer Happy McLenna n in a boxing and wrestling match with Glen Leeson. Leeso n was no match for Hoppin* Mad Happy who cut him so bad i n the tussle that Leeson had to be carried off the ice o n one of Tracy's stretchers. A lot of red blood of the veg etable nature was lost by Leeson who made a speedy recover y and was back to finish the game.
Manitowaning's Bill McDougal received a special presentati on the form of "screen muzzle," before the start of the g ame in which would have provided him with fine protectio n from losing that denture of his which keeps getting awa y from him and sliding all over the ice.
The official referees in the fine form of Clown Jean McLena n, Ethel Bowerman and Mrs. Glen Leeson also provided man y laughs with their amusing interrpretation of penalties , offsides ! and prejudiced method of referreeing.
The hockey match was enjoyed by all and was a fine chang e from the usual serious and sometimes drab type of hocke y which we see so much of. Little Current Squarenaders ar e to be congratulated for their assistance in making the c arnival a success and we wish them luck ia their return m atch with Manitowaning to be played at the Little Curren t Ice Carnival.
