    Background: In Whitby, Ontario -- the Whitby Dunlops play their last game with the Sudbury Wolves before leaving for Oslo, Norway, and the world Hockey tournament. Sixteen hundred fans cheer the Dunlops as they hold the Wolves to a two-all tie in an overtime contest. The fact that the home team fails to win, vs no check on the enthusiasm of the Whitby fans.

    After the game, Mayor Harry Jermyn introduces J.P. Anderson, president of the company that sponsors the Dunlops, and handed a scroll to the team's manager, Wren Blair. The scroll will be presented to the citizens of Whitby, England. The Team's playing coach, Sid Smith said he intends to work the Dunlops hard during the fourteen exhibition games they will play in Europe before the World tournament in Oslo.

    After the formal farewell ceremony, the crowd gave the team a rousing send-off as they left for NEW YORK by bus, escorted out of Whitby by the town fire truck. Some of the players wives accompanied them on the trip and will spend some time with them in New York before they leave for Europe.
