All Out for Hockey

This staggering assemblage of youngsters and coaches on the ice of Toronto's Scarboro Arena is vivid testimony to the loyalty of Canadians to their national game. This is the Scarboro Lions League, 700 strong, a highly developed and well-equipped organization for boys 8 to 15, who play a game a week during the season. Each age group has a separate framework within the league, from Tyke to Midget teams, and thereafter the better players are directed toward farm clubs of the Toronto Maple Leafs. Toronto Rookie Bobby Baun is a Scarboro graduate who has made the big league. In uniform or out, Canadian kids have an icy good time; for a look at informal hockey turn the page.

Backyard Hockey on impromptu rink made by hosing a Toronto lawn lures Teddy La Palm, 10, Margaret Callahan, 4, Charles Jewett, 6.
