Interesting article - attributed to The Falcon", a pen name. Newspaper is Regina based. Doubt if the author had a chance to actually tour the league and see the players and goalies play. No TV in those days. How much credit should we give to hearsay reports or newspaper accounts that are not attributed to writers known to actually cover games on a regular basis?

"Players Who Starred in Western Canada" is after all the main headline.
