If she had her way, Ali would punch me in the nose and Frank Mahovlich would shoot a puck in my biased eye And how did you like Mahovlich Wednesday night? If he doesn't jump to the World Hockey Association next season I'll take a bite out of my Royal keyboard Don Vogan, formerly with the 1951 World champion Lethbridge Maple Leafs, is currently coaching the Sherwood Park Knights of Edmonton...

Strange, eh what? 1 can't agree with Fischler It has to be the Bruins of Boston as the final survivor The way I see it in the opening rounds has Boston ousting Toronto Maple Leafs in five games, the Rangers over Montreal in six as the Canadiens just aren't consistent The Rangers may not be either, but they have got to be hungrier In the west division, who else but Philadelphia Flyers over Atlanta, with the Flames lucky to win once The Black Hawks should have little trouble with the Los Angeles Kings but I would like to see Bob Pulford's Kings win a couple Once you get past the first round look for the Rangers to sideline the brawlers from Philly in six games and Boston over the Hawks in six The final should read Brains 4- 2 over Rangers in games. Mrs Babe Ruth was beautiful Thursday when Hank Aaron stroked home run number 714 to tie Babe's career mark She had expected it for a long time and so it didn't come as a surprise to her She hopes Aaron keeps his health and luck in his attempt to break the mark Said Mrs. Ruth "I'm all for it I think it's good for the game It fills up the parks I really wish him luck and I hope he'll nit many more" Aaron reacted by saying "Tying the record is great, but breaking it is another thing Concealing the pressure of his long chase of Ruth's record, Aaron said he'll show more emotion when he claims the record breaking 715th home run "I'll probably run around the bases the slugger said Two television firms plan to show 12 CFL games this fall starting with the all-star game and ending with the Grey Cup classic The U S rights for the use of live Canadian Football League telecasts costs a year.

Phono 328-1228 Roughies see obituary in five years REGINA (CP) Spokesmen for Saskatchewan Roughriders said Friday that rising costs may force the Western Football Conference club out of business within five or six years no matter what the federal government does to control the fledgling World Football League. Past President Bill Clarke told a news conference the WLF's existence will increase costs for each Canadian Football League team by at least a year starting immediately, even if Toronto Northmen are prevented by legislation from establishing in Canada. "No team in Canada is operating with a big profit said Clarke. Top athletes Sandra Knight, left and Phil Letham were named athletes of the year at the University of Lethbridge Friday evening.

Her performance failed to inspire the Seals as they closed out the season with a 12-game winless defeats and a tie "Certainly the Roughriders aren't." "Our costs have been increasing by a year anyway. The fact the increase isn't higher is think, to good management." Demands by the CFL players association are adding to the pressure, he said. "The players are entitled to as much as is possible, but they must realize they can't keep demanding something that isn't there. SURE OF PASSAGE Marc Lalonde, federal health and welfare minister, has promised legislation to protect the CFL from intrusion into Canada by the WFL. Clarke said he is sure the proposed legislation will be passed into law. "We're not concerned strictly about the said Clarke "If it were just one team and just one city we wouldn't worry. "But we're concerned ultimately with the National Football League because that's the WFL's competition." Clarke told the news conference the Roughriders have been urged by several players to dig into their current bank surplus of about to meet their demands It would be foolish to dig into that cushion, "because revenue from that money provides us about a year, which is more than our annual profit "Sooner or later it would be all used up At a year, or close to that, it isn't hard to No girls? WILLIAMSPORT, Pa (AP) The executive board of Little League Baseball Inc unanimously voted Friday to appeal to the New Jersey supreme court an order that girls be allowed to compete with boys this year After a day-long meeting, the board directed its attorneys to proceed immediately with its appeal of a civil rights order concerning the use of girls'by a Little League in Hoboken, NJ The New Jersey case has prompted heated debate in Little League circles, and the New Jersey .assembly voted 39-36 Thursday against a bill which would have delayed implementation of the civil rights order The order directed that if there is any Little League competition in New Jersey this year, girls must be allowed to participate The Little League board, while taking no further stand on whether girls should play, simply issued the bnet statement that the civil rights order would be appealed STAMPEDE WRESTLING EXHIBITION PAVILION Monday, April 8 p.m. ARCHIE "STOMPER" GOULDIE vt LEO BURKE NICK CARTER DANNY LITTLE BEAR SWEET WILLIAM GADABRA SAHOTA BIG JOHN QUINN MOUNTAIN MAN WILLIAMSON S Exciting Matches Watch Stampede Wrestling on CJOC-TV!

If it becomes necessary to use the surplus the club would have to approach senior levels of government for help in continuing to operate. Clarke admitted discussions have been held in view of that possibility, "but it's too early for elaboration." He agreed government intervention is not always desirable and that he would have preferred the government to act before the Northmen and the WFL were established.' The government said in 1972 it opposed a CFL plan, later defeated, to grant expansion franchises in the United States. "The Roughriders held a similar said Clarke. General Manager Ken Preston of the Roughriders said the Northmen hope to succeed in Toronto even if most WFL clubs failed so Northmen management can apply to the NFL for a franchise in the future. "It would be indefensible to prevent the NFL from operating here after the WFL had permitted'to operate." Loss of the Argos would lead inevitably to the loss of Montreal and probably to the loss of Vancouver said Preston, who believed both cities would follow Toronto to the NFL "To lose even one or two centres would mean the end of the CFL as a top professional league."
