12 THE LETHBRIDGE HERALD Thursday, April 26, 1973 Series uith Haivks opens Sunday afternoon Rumors say Habs' captain will retire (CP) As Mon- treal Canadiens> prepare for then- Stanley Cup series against Chicago Black Hawks, there is much talk that this will be the final for Canadiens team captain Hcan Richard. Ricliard. an 13-} ear National Hocke> League will lead Montreal into their final F'.'n Stan Fischlers series against the Hawks tha will begin here Sunday aftei noon. One report says the vetera centre will take a post in th Ganadiens' public relations de- partment and announce his re- tirement after the season. Richard was ashed by severa reporters Tuesday night afte nside Hockey J ,w.j'' T1EREK Sanderson of the Boston Bruins must be the dumbest smart guy ever to have laced on a pair of skates or, for that matter, written a book. Despite occasional respites to rejuvenate his repertoire and vocal chords, Derek verbally erupts with the con- sistency of a chinook. The point being that it's about time that Sanderson REALLY shut his large mouth because he has begun treading on some awfully thin ice with his awfully quick tongue. His latest breakaway to- ward what appears to be his goal of utter absurdity occur- red during an interview with Charlotte Gobeil of the Cana- The television discussion with Ms. Gobeil got around to people Sanderson likes and dislikes. He said he didn't like Blacks. "You don't like he was "No.'' he said, "I don't like Blacks." According to Ms. Gobeil, whom I spoke to the others day. Sanderson was some- what less than sober when he uttered these remarks. But she has no doubt that he meant them. "You're a Sander- son was told. "I'm not a bigot." he in- sisted. "If I was a bigot I'd lie about it." The problem here is not so Did he mean what he said about Blacks? Who knows? "Derek likes to shock peo- ple.'1 said Mrs. Gobeil. "It is one of the many roles lie plays." What is one to make of Sanderson? I asked Clinton Jean, a Biack sociologist at Harvard, what he thought of Sanderson's statements. He read them carefully and ap- peared singularlv ummoved. "It's no big said Jean, "and I don't even get angry at him. But if a man such as the basketball play- er, Bill Bradley, who works and plays closely with Blacks, had said it I would be sur- prised. dian Broadcasting Corpora- tion. Ms. Gobeil, an accomplish- ed bilingual journalist, jetted down to Fort Lauderdale, Flo- rida to interview Derek while his attorney, Bob Woolf, was hammering out a financial settlement with the Philadel- phis Blazers. Sanderson, who likes to think of himself as a one- thousand per cent chauvinis- tic Canadian, was in a bad mood and supposedly not re- ceptive to interviews. Accord- ing to the transcript provided me by the CBC, Sanderson said some very explosive things. And, as far as I can determine, only Jim Kearney of The Vancouver Sun has bothered to spank Derek for his outrageous outbursts. much that Sanderson has his likes and dislikes. Lord knows, we all do. What matters is that San- derson's tongue has a bad habit of running out-of-con- troL Let's just suppose that in this case he DID NOT mean a word he said about disliking Blacks. "I told said Ms. Go- beil, "that that was a pretty stupid remark. He told me that he doesn't condemn a whole race and that he had some trouble with them." Perhaps the most persis- tent problem with Sanderson is that one never knows when he is serious and when he is delivering one of his put-ons. "Sanderson makes a point about his being prejudiced, but not a bigot, because he is open about it. That's a fine point that I, for one. don't ap- preciate." Another who heard Derek's remarks was Alan Borovoy, of Toronto, director of the Canadian Civil Liberties As- sociation. Considering that the com- ments did come from San- derson, Borovoy said that they weren't even worth com- ment. Somebody mentioned to the civil rights leader that Sanderson, at least, should be commended for his candor.

"After the Chicago series there's lots of time to think There's still a lot of work do." "He'd be crazy to quit now, said team-mate Serge Savard who was whacked across th face by Richard following dressing room dispute in late November. "He is our best centre. H may never score 50 goals, bu he's indespensible to us. have never seen a player wit as much heart. "He gets hit all the tim when he's playing, but he al ways bounces back. Everyon likes him here. There have been quarrels in the past, but that's over with." No one in the Montreal fron office will confirm. Richard's possible retirement. "Will he said Cana diens' coach Scatty Bowman after Tuesday's game. "Maybe he should walk in and sign i new contract tomorrow morn ing. It's unbelievable how he can play so well.'' So far, Richard has played on 10 Stanley Cup-winning clubs, a record he shares with former Habs' captain Jean Beliveau who retired shortly after Cana diens beat Chicago in seven games in 1971. Richard says he would like to make it 11 this year, adding jokingly that "it's the only record of Beliveau's I'll be able ;o But before he announces any- thing about his future, Richarc says he wants to think about the present and die forthcoming series with Chicago. "It's not going- to be an easy series, no series is. .Anything can happen. Remember in 197] when Boston was supposed to win and we beat them? "If we are better offensively and I think it's time we were we should win. From a techni- cal standpoint, the series against Chicago should be easier than the one against Philadel- phia. 'Now, we have to finish the series and then we'll see."

WINNIPEG (CP) A vet- eran on a hot streak, a house- wife who got in via the back door and a youngster who has been bowling only months captured three of the four singles titles Wednesday at the Canadian open five pin bowling championships. Fraser Hambly of Toronto, a 30-year-old elementary school teacher who has pocketed about in the last month of bowl- ing, continued his hot streak by winning the men's open singles with a 12-g a m e total of 3.226 points.

Barb Pheips of Saskatoon was second 2.967 and Toby Morgan of Windsor, Ont.. third with 2.354.

"Then he (Domik) went west to shop for a higher said Litman. "He was quoted in a newspaper about how much the Edmonton team had offered. How can that team be judged as amateur? I can't fatham that." He said Domik was quoted as saying he'd been offered a weekend for 13 weekends, a new car, an apartment in Ed- monton and a percentage of the gate. "The team would fly him in each Friday and return him each Sunday night or early Monday. Amateuur teams in Canada and the U.S. "have been so con- cerned with losing blue-chip tal- ent they've opened up their cheque books like never be- fore." The time for mutual respect was over. "We have tried from the be- ginning to show the amateur people we meant no harm, posed no threat and certainly didn't cast the first stone. But the kid gloves are off and the only thing we can run out of is money. We will not ever get nto a bidding war with ama- teur teams, it simply isn't worth it.'' A.G.T.
