Background: The Belle Ville Macfarlands, Canadaw world Champion Ice Hockey team started their tour of Europe in Oslo tonight warming up for a round of 34 matches in the next 62 days. Canada has played 6 times earlier since 1950 in London, Paris, Oslo, Stockholm -every time making dilletants of their Norwegian opposite numbers. When last they played in Oslo they beat their hosts 12 - 0. Tonight their novice hosts played a different tune and occasionally good Ice hockey. Although the Canadians were after on their skates, quicker on the puck and individually better performers, the home team showed initiative during all three rounds, and really fought the W.Champs. First 2 rounds went to Canada with 5-0 then as the younger and lighter Norwegian team pushed and pressed through the last 20 minutes they did what the roaring 6000 home crowd thought impossible. Homed 2 goals as they carried the game to the canadian half and fought of avrey Canadian initiative before their own goal. The Norwegian KING OLAV V and CROWNPRINCE HARALD watched the game and rejoiced in the new hope that Norway is climbing onto the rink of bigtime Ice hockey.
