The Jets play host to th Aeros Sunday night for the sec ond game in the series. Cleveland Crusaders are a home tonight to New England Whalers who lead that Eastern Division series 2-0. The Whalers got solid performances from goaltender Al Smith and the en tire defence Thursday nisht to beat Cleveland 3-2. Fourth game in that series will be played Sunday in Cleveland. New England spotted Cteve- land goals by Ron Buchanan and Wayne Mulcin in the first five nnnutes of play before ral lying behind Larry Pleau's two goals and one by Tom Webster. At Winnipeg, the Jets scoret three first-period goals and were content to play Houston's pace the rest of the way. Vet- eran cenire Wally Boyer secret twice for the Jets with Bil Sutherland, Danny Johnson anc player-coach Bobby Hull scor- ing one each. Duke Harris scored Houston's only goal in the final minute of the second period, slapping in a rebound as the Aeros took ad- vantage of a sloppy Winnipeg power-play. Houston coach Bill Dineen said the game "has to be our worst effort in six "I think we were tired. We came out fine the first couple of shifts then really went flat. It certainly wasn't one of our bet- ter games of the year." Dineen added, however, that "no one seems down we'll just write this off as a bad game.'' Hull said it was difficult to t going when the Aeros quit hitting after the first few min- utes and started laving back "They might still be feeling ths Los Angeles series a little bit. I just hope our guys don't I think this was the toughest J game they're going to play." The Winnipeg players admit- ted they were sluggish through most of the game but attributed it to the hot arena and the Houston style of play. Right-winger Norm Beaudin. usually one of the club's best skaters and checksrs, said he felt like he had "a piano on my back all night." "I don't ieally know what it was. But they were really slow and we had been off for a week Dafenceman Bobby Ash, whose end-to-end rush set up the first goal by Sutherland, said it was "tremendously hot out there. I did Sudsy (Sutherland) was just in the right spot.'' Boyer made it 2-0 by slapping in his own rebound and Johnson increased the margin when he caught the short side of the net on a two-on-one break with Hull. Houston goalie Wayne Rut- ledge, who finished with 24 saves, made a skate save on Hull early in the second period but moments later the Winnipea coach took a drop pass and Of his play, in which he cir-! Wasted it into the opposite cor- clsd behind the Houston cet and fed the puck across the crease to Sutherland, the veteran de- fenceman said he "couldn't come out any further in front.'' "I had to throw it in front like ner for a 4-0 lead. Harris scored for Houston late in the second period, slam- ming a rebound under Joe Da- ley in the final minute of the priod.

Or pos- sibly, they have already been sold. An air of secrecy has form- ed over the past two days over the actual sale of the club, a founding member of the Alber- :a league. Rumors persist that the club ias already been sold. Syd Hall, general manager of the club and one of three owners, said Thursday, "we are nego- tiating the sale of the club, but no'hing has been finalized." j The sale, if it has al- ready been consumated, is re- ported to have been made to a group headed by Scotty Mun- ro of Calgary, a move which has brought about a number of protests from a local group seek- ing to buy tha club. The Kings and Munro had a agreement two years ago in the league but just pri- or to the 1972-73 season all re- lations were reported to have been severed with the Calgary Centennial owner. But were they? It is a well-known fact that the Kings suffered through the most embarrassing season in their history last year. Munro pulled out the players he own- ed and the locals were left virtuaTy a good juvenile team, nothing more. However, no one knows for certain if the locals did, in fact, sever relations with Mun- ro. They certainly received lit- tle player help from him. But according to one spokesman for a local group who did offer to buy the club last year Hall, president Carl Treatini and Adrian Uitbyerse, the oLher two so-called owners of the team, were in no position to se'l the club to local interests. Stan Maxwell and Herb Christie applied for a fran- chise in the Western Canada Hockey League more than a year ago but there was not proper ice facilities so their bid was turned down. Now, however, there will be a 5.000 or 6.000 seat arena available for hockey by the 1974-75 sea- son it is hoped. Lethbridge it would appear, has the inside track on a WCHL fran- chise should one come avail- able. Hall, when asked why the club would not be sold to local interests, simply replied "Mun- ro is the logical one. If Leth- bridge is to get a WCHL club. Munro would get first crack at it anyway. He has the ter- ritorial The locals questioned bis territorial rights public, with threat of a law suit, that the Lethbridge Min- or Hockey Association shared in the Sugar Kings. Where does this leave them? Leo Harrold, president of the LMHA stated simplyt "our books are in the hands of our lawyers at present. If the sale is made, we will get restitu- tion." So it would appear, as things now stand, that Munro and company will indeed be back in Lethbridge. The locals are upset, and full well they should be. Are we building a brand new rink for outside in- terests to reap the benefits? It looks that way.
