York Times Service NEW YORK Another "dream mile is coming up in footracing circles this week, which is like saying that this week Saturday will again follow Friday This week's dream originates in El Paso, Tex where the professionals on the International Track Association treadmill open their outdoor season Saturday The mile field includes Kenya's unbeatable Ben Jipcho and Chris Fisher, the Australian who recently beat him, along with Jim Ryun Kip Kemo and Dave Wottle, the world champion and two Olympic champions The meet will be covered by American Broadcasting Company's "Wide World of Sports" with commentary by Marty Liquon, the Florida cracker from Philadelphia's Mam Line Liquon is a graduate student in broadcasting at the University of Florida, learning where to put he accent when he promises fast, fast, fast relief at the low, low price of 1 98 and how to get that boy-next door sincerity into his voice when he mentions the laxative most doctors recommend He is also a sporting goods retailer with stores in Gainesville and Tallahassee and another about to open in Gainesville "And two weeks ago I bought a house here in Gainesville he said on the telephone Tuesday, "so I guess I'm getting to be a native of Florida Anyway, I expect to be running for a few more years and I want to be down here where I can train the year around Light of heart and foot, Liquon was the most generous of competitors when he ran the mile for Villanova In 1969 he lan Ryun into retirement and when the world record holder made a comeback in a "dream mile" two years later, Liquon beat him again in three minutes, 54 8 seconds In the Olympic year of 1972, however, Marty came up lame Hoping for a miracle that would get him to Munich, he consulted Dr Robert Kerlan in California "He told me it was hopeless for that Liquon said "It was a good thing to know, because I wouldn t have given up unless I was convinced Then it was up to me to face a change in my life Was I going to sit down and cry, or try to get a broadcasting job, get to Munich that way, and make a new career9 So I withdrew my law school applications and applied to broadcasting schools Back on the track this winter, Marty has been working into form slowly In his only serious race outdoors he beat the Olympic Marathon champion, Frank Shorter, at three miles in the Florida Relays He returns to Philadelphia Thursday to run three miles in an "olympic development" preliminary to the Penn Relays, then proceeds to El Paso "Chris Fisher, he said, analyzing Saturday s mile, "is one of professional track's first stars in the sense that he was developed on the pro circuit He was an international class runner when he turned pro but not a top star He developed He has beaten Wottle at a half mile, which is Wottle's distance and he is the only one who has beaten Jipcho as a pro This field has four of the five fastest milers of all time, and they are runners of every type There is Ryun with his blazing last quarter and Wottle with that great kick of his in the last 100 yards Jipcho and Kemo are strong all the way, powerful and fast "In this race I would expect somebody else to set the early pace, like Chuck La ben z of Arizona He likes to go out fast from the start Whoever is, I think, will be watching Ben Jipcho After all, he has been winning almost all his races as an amateur and almost everything as a pro and he was the amateur and almost everything as a pro and he was the amateur athlete of the year last year I think each one will be trying to employ his own strategy against Ben Some see a paradox in the fact that although Liquon was instrumental in getting the I T A off the starting blocks, he has been unwilling to turn pro himself 'I was the master of ceremonies and attended all the meets last he said "What with school and business, the travel was just too much This year I'm trying to reduce the travel and limit my work as M C to eastern meets About turning pro, yes, I haven t yet given up on the Montreal Olympics of 1976 The real reason, though, involves a lot of other things If I'm going to try to do all the things I want to do, running has to be a hobby, something I do when I want to run or when I can fit it into my schedule If I sign the pro contract I would have to fulfill all the commitments with no ifs, ands or buts 'And I like what I'm doing In the broadcasting school here we have a small educational station where we get experience And sometimes, because it s such a small market, people even watch us Bruins trail for second time Hawks had

after Jim Pappin scored in overtime to give Chicago Black Hawks a 4-3 sudden-death victory over Boston Bruins Mikita played a major role m the win that sent Chicago into a 2-1 lead in the best-of- seven Stanley Cup semi-final that resumes here Thursday night at 6 30 p m MST He scored two third-period goals that brought Chicago from a 3 1 deficit The one that tied the game at 3 3 with 42 seconds left in regulation time was the type he called lucky TIPPED BY RUSSELL With goalie Tony Esposito on the bench and six Chicago skaters blitzing the Boston goal Phil Russell tipped the puck past the net

contender for the heavyweight championship of the world, tries his hand at gourmet cooking while waiting for another crack at the title Canadien's sudden playoff exit starts cries for Bowman's head MONTREAL was a good deal of talk in the latter part of February that it was time for Montreal Cana- diens to make a trade of some sort to shake the club up a bit A few members of the Na- tional Hockey League club were discussing trade speculation during a post- practice lunch one afternoon when one of them suddenly piped up and said "Who do you think they'll trade'' "Maybe they should trade Scotty was the quick reph from one of his teammates The Ganadiens eventually did made a trade, but hardly one to shake up the club Indeed, the only person it probably shook up was Dave Gardner, dealt away to St Louis Blues for a first-round choice in this year's amateur draft Now, following Canadiens' sudden exit from this season s Stanley Cup playoffs, there is a new war cry appearing ir. various newspapers and being heard on several radio stations across the city "Fire coach Bowman Bowman is being held by many as the mam reason for the failure of his hockey club to get by New York Rangers in the quarter-final round But his boss. General Man- ager Sam Pollock, says Bow man is not at fault for the team's downfall and that "He was the same man this season as he was in 1972-73 when he won everything "There will be some people that will be surprised but I have confidence in Bowman One astounded man was John Robertson, sports columnist for The Star "I find it difficult to believe that as astute a hockey man as Sam Pollock can come out and publicly absolve Bowman of all blame for Canadiens' prob- Robertson wrote Tues- day "Although Scotty was by no means the club's only problem, he was the root of major failing which dragged so many of his players down to mediocrity this season "Loss of pride Loss of desire Loss of togetherness Lack of leadership Inability to deal with the shirkers and malcontents in his midst "This is what he is paid so handsomely to do Robertson's comments are more or less the same as those which have been appearing in the local French-language dailies since the Canadiens' defeat Bowman has had heated ar- guments with somp of his players both privately and in the open In the closing weeks of the season in a game in Boston, Bowman and goalie Wayne Thomas exchanged unpleasantnes after the Montreal coach had decided to lift his goalie from a pre-game warmup Veteran defenceman Jacques Lapernere indicated earlier this season that he would rather not return to Montreal if Bowman were coaching in 1974-75 This outburst came after Bowman was reported to have down- graded Lapernere in front of his team-mates in a game in St Louis Defenceman Pierre Bouchard and veteran forward Frank Mahovlich may be heading for the rival World Hockey Association Minor Soccer The Lethbridge and District Minor Soccer Association will hold its second mass practice this evening It was previously announced that the workout would be held Thursday, but it is tonight from six until eight o'clock at Wilson Junior High School The association is still in need of volunteer help for this year's activities Ariyone interested is asked to be at the workout tonight ELRICH TIRE SPORT SCORES NATIONAL St Lou z New Los San San Kansas City 100 001 10 0 Boston 101 000 8 1 Fritzmorns (1-0) and Martinez Drago (1 1) Segui (9) and Didier Montgomery (9) Milwaukee 000 001 3 0 Chicago 200 001 7 1 Slaton (1 2) Murphy (7) and Moore Kaat (2 0) Acosta (7, and Herrmann LEAGUE LEADERS American League AB R H Pet 58 TUESDAY'S RESULTS Chicago 000 100 3 3 Cincinnati 200 001 02x -570 Frailmg (2 1) Burns (6) Pma (8) Kremmel (8) Hutson (8) and Mitterwald Nelson (1 2) Borbon (7) and Bench HR (7) Houston 020 000 8 1 St Louis 014 101 13 0 Konieczry (0-2) Wilson (3) Nagy (7) and Edwards Siebert (2 1) and McCarver HR (1) New York 000 000 2 7 1 San Diego 102 130 16 0 Matlock (1 1) Parker (4) Sadecki (5) Miller (8) and Grote Jones (1-4) and Kendall HR Jones (1-4) and Kendall HR (1) Philadelphia 200 000 9 2 Los Angeles 000 100 9 1 Schueler 1) Scarce (9) and Boone Rau Marshall (7) Brewer (8) (2 0) and Yeager Ferguson (8) HRs Pha Luzmski (2) LA Paciorek (1) Montreal 010 105 10 2 San Francisco 001 030 6 1 Torrez (3 0) Walker (6) and Foote Bradley (2-2) Rose (6) Barr (6) Sosa (8) and Rudolph HRs Mil Bailey (3) SF Bonds (3) LEAGUE LEADERS National League Jackson Oak Yastrski Bos Slanton Cahl Gittin Bos Gnch Bait Oliva Mm Carew Minn Wohld KC Spikes Cleve Nettles NY 12 24 414 53 11 21 396 59 12 23 390 49 5 19 388 48 10 18 375 38 0 14 368 63 10 23 365 53 57 60 19 358 20 351 12 21 350 Singleton Hebner Unser Parker Gross Robinson Reitz Monday Rose Smith AMERICAN New Kdnsas Oakland 000 000 8 0 Cleveland 000 000 3 1 Hunter (3 1) and Foise G Perry (A 1) and Duncan Hr (2) California 000 000 210 9 1 Baltimore 000 200 100 11 1 Tanana Sells (8) (1-1) and Rodriguez Grimsley Reynolds (8) (2 0) and Etchebarren Hendncks (10) Minnesota 000 000 000 8 3 Detroit 000 000 000 0-0 5 0 Woodson Campbell (10) (2 0) and Borgmann LaGrow (0 2) and Moses HP (2) Home runs G Nettles O Jack son 7 Runs batted in Jackson 21 Nellies 20 Pitching 2 decisions Miller Detroit 3-0 1 000 C Wright Milwaukee 3-0 1 000 B Reynolds Baltimore 2 1 000 Palmer Baltimore 20 10 Kaat Chicago 2 0 1 000 B Campbell Minnesota 2 0 1 000 Decker Minnesota 20 1 000 Corbm Minnesota 0 1 000 NATIONAL HOCKEY LEAGUE Series E W L F A P Chicago 2 1 14 13 4 Boston 1 2 13 14 2 Series F W L F A P Philadelphia 20924 New York 02290 SCORING LEADERS G A Pts MacLeish Pha 7 4 11 Bucyk B 5 S 10 Sheppard B 639 Stemkowski R 459 Shut!
