SAN DIEGO (AP) The iiullion dream, which ended an explosion for Joe Fra- ".ier, faded quietly for Muham- mad Ali.

A few months ago before Crazier walked into several of jeorge Foreman's haymakers i ares well The Lethbridge Amateur Club fared well in a duel -nun meet with the Killarney Amateur Swim Club of Calgary in the weekend.

Eddie Futch, when asked about a rematch with Ali, said: "Sure, it the money is right. But right now we don't need him.'' Ali's trainer, Angelo Dundee, said Sunday that the boxer would be in hospital ''for Uo or three for thc operation to wire his left jaw bone. Dundee said: ''From all in- dications, he's going to be fine. We've already talked and he asked how long it might be oe- fore he can get back in train- ing.'' Dundee said he couldn't pre- dict how long it v. ould be. Ali, who had won 10 straight since losing to Frazier, was a 5- 1 favorite over Norton, whose 30 victims in 31 fights were even more obscure.

"I knew that when he came in at 221 pounds. He didn't prepare as seriously as he should have." Ali. who lost for the second time in 43 fights, earned S210.- 000 to Norton's S50.000. Ali's jaw was broken early in the fight. Dundee said it hap- pened in the first round, though Norton didn't appear to land a solid blow in the round. Futch thinks it was in the fourtn round. "I can't fathom how he could Lundeen said. The lav'.er left jaw bone was broken clear- through, he added. But Ali, spitting blood, wouldn't let Dundee stop the fight. He showed slashes of his old round of dancing and two of prodding, a jab that was quick but no longer stung. With one round left he still had a chance to win. But in the 12th round, Norton trapped Ali in a corner for the sixth time in the fight and bat- tered hm with body and head blows.

By THE CANADIAN PRESS The World Hockey Associ- ation's first season ended Sun- day for all but Alberta Oilers and Minnesota Fighting Saints. The Oilers, who for a while thought they had clinched fourth place in the West Divi- sion, later discovered they must play a tie-breaking game with Minnesota to decide which ad- vances to the playoffs. The game will be played ei- ther Tuesday or Wednesday in Calgary or Vancouver. A league spokesman said it was expected that Alberta general manager Bill Hunter would announce the definite site and time for the game. The winner will go against West Division champion Winni- peg Jets in the first game of the best-of-seven quarter-final play- offs starting Friday in Winni- peg. Alberta and Minnesota fin- ished the regular season with identical records of 39 wins, 37 losses and three ties for 79 points. CHANGED SCHEME The league had originally pro- vided for a playoff game to break such ties but on March 21 decided instead to adopt a tie- breaking scheme similar to the National Hockey League. By that system, the won-lost record is the first factor but both teams had identical records. And after Alberta beat Minnesota 5-3 last Friday, they ended up with four wins each in their season series. That left Al- berta ahead on 21 victories over West Division teams during the season to Minnesota's 17. But Minnesota had protested the tie-breaking rule since it was announced two weeks ago, and after a poll of league trustees during the weekend, it was decided to revert to the playoff game. League president Gary David- son said in announcing the deci- sion Sunday night: "As we've done throughout the season, our decision was based on what we thought was the test for all in- volved. It was more equitable to have a playoff game to deter- mine fourth place." In final games during the weekend, Ottawa Nationals fin- ished fourth in the East Divi- sion after losses to Cleveland Crusaders, by a 4-2 score Satur- day, and Houston Aeros, 6-3 Sunday. BLAZERS THIRD Philadelphia Blazers overtook the Nate for third place by beating Chicago Cougars 5-1 Saturday and Winnipeg 4-2 Sun- day, Quebec Les Nordiques fin- ished fifth in the East, just three points behind Ottawa, after beating Houston Aeros 5-1 Saturday and losing 8-3 to New England Whalers Sunday. Cleveland whipped Chicago 5- 1 in the only other game Sun- day. East Div'o'on champion New England will start its playoff series with Ottawa Saturday at Rcstosi with the second game Sunday. The teams move to Ot- tawa for the third and fourth games April 10 and 12. The Blazers go against the Crusaders starting Wednesdaj' in Cleveland and the second game is tentatively set for Fri- day. Those teams then move to Philadelphia for games April 8 and April 10 or n. Houston, with its victory Sun- day at Ottawa, won second place in the West and home-ice Minor hockey wants trophies The annual Lethbridge Manor Hockey Association banquet and awards presentation is fast approaching.
