Pacific Coast Hockey Loop Considers New Franchises SEATTLE, Wash., May 1 UP . — Final action on applications for franchises in the Pacific Coast Hockey League was expected today at the meeting here of the board of directors. League president G. A. "Al" Leader said applications from San Bernardino, Calif., and Hollywood were received at the opening of the session yesterday. As the two-day meeting got under way, the San Francisco Shamrocks were granted permission to deactivate the club for one year. George J. Campbell, San Francisco director, gave no reason for his request. It was thought poor attendance was the basic reason. Still to be acted on was the question of splitting the 10-team league into two separate leagues. Reliable sources had indicated the northern division of the present league might be made a separate loop. A southern league would then be formed of present members plus, possibly, either San Francisco or Sacramento.
