Herald' Sports LETHBRIOOB OFFICE FURNITURJ LTD. Loww 7lh ttrMt Mopping Mill (403) 321-7411 HOME AND OFFICE SAFES World Hockey team to play Soviets six times Howe, Hull get chance to meet Russians TORONTO (CP) There may be no National Hockey League players on the roster when Team Canada 74 engages the Soviet Union's national team in a six-game series in September. But two former NHL greats Gordie Howe and Bobby Hull will head the Canadian team of World Hockey Association players. Announcement of the series was made at a news conference Monday by officials of the WHA, Hockey Canada and the Canadian Amateur Hockey Association. Douglas Fisher, chairman of Hockey Canada, said the first game will be played "no earlier than Sept. 17" and the last game in Moscow Oct. 5. Four of the six games will be played in Canadian cities with the last two in Moscow. "The Russians only wanted two games at home." A better training program and two extra weeks of practice are plus factors Team Canada 74 organizers believe will provide an edge over its 1972 predecessor, which was restricted to NHL players. Fisher said the 1974 team will be open to all Canadian players. Hull was barred from the 1972 team because he had "jumped" to the fledgling WHA. Howe, the NHL's all-time scoring leader with 786 goals, made a comeback this season with Houston Aeros of the WHA. This time, Hull, player-coach of Winnipeg Jets, will be one of two assistants to head coach Billy Harris. Harris and Hull were named by Ben Hatskin, owner of the Jets, who will serve as the WHA's official representative to the team. Hatskin also named Bill Hunter, vice-president and general manager of Edmonton Oilers of the WHA, as Team Canada '74 manager. In addition to Howe and Hull, three other players with extensive NHL experience may join the team. The three, who played with Team Canada 1972, are Pat Stapleton, who left Chicago Black Hawks to become playing coach of Chicago Cougars of the WHA; Paul Henderson of Toronto Maple Leafs, who has been reported considering jumping to the WHA's Toronto Toros; and former Montreal Canadiens' goalie Ken Dryden, who is expected to join the Toros after a year's sabbatical from hockey. Fisher said the invitation to NHL players remains open, but it was not expected any would join Team Canada '74 because the NHL board of governors had ruled against such participation. NHL president Clarence Campbell, said his league never again will supply players for a Canadian national team. He cited inadequate compensation in the 1972 series, both to the league and to the teams. Meanwhile, Alan Eagleson, executive director of the NHL Players' Association, said Hockey Canada is repeating a mistake it made in 1972. "It is completing arrangements at a date too late to allow adequate preparation of a team." Eagleson said the 11-month Soviet season makes it inevitable that the Russian team will be in far better shape than its Canadian opponent. Fisher said no decision has been made on a training camp site. Team Canada '74 and the Soviet squad will be limited to 25 players each, Hunter said. Unlike 1972 when the two-referee system was used, the 1974 games will be handled by a referee and two linesmen. Fisher said ticket sales and television revenue from the series would be split equally between the WHA and Hockey Canada an organization of government, business and sports interests including the CAHA, whose aim is the promotion of hockey in Canada. Each of the participating players would receive about along with fringe benefits.

Make offer to buy Broncos I Longhorns still in fight f By PAT SULLIVAN Herald Sports Editor Lethbridge Longhorns of the Alberta Junior Hockey League may have lost one or two of the battles in their bid for a Tier 1 hockey franchise, but they have not yet lost the war. In what has been a year-long confrontation, the Longhorns, a Tier 2 team, have made a solid bid for at least some of the action in the Western Canada Hockey League, if not all of it. The Longhorn executive have made an offer to purchase the Swift Current Broncos from owner Bill Burton. Burton, you will recall, was given the go-ahead by WCHL officials to transfer his Broncos to Lethbridge, providing all sides agreed on the move. Burton got the green light from city officials as they made available the new Sportsplex. Monday, it was announced that the minority shareholders of the Broncos have agreed to sell their shares to Burton, providing he acquire a Tier 2 franchise for Swift Current. According to Herb Christie, Longhorn president, indications are the locals are making progress in their efforts. "We were responsible for getting the minority shareholders to sell to said Christie. Now, all the Longhorns must do is convince Burton they should be a part of the team in its move into Lethbridge. As Christie puts it, "the Broncos are coming one way or another. Things will be much smoother if everyone works together. The Longhorn bid, in the form of a telegram, should leave Burton with no doubts as to the good intentions of the Longhorn hockey organization. The telegram read: this telegram is to confirm our recent telephone conversation and offer to purchase the franchise of the Swift Current Broncos and the players list and contracts to cover same for the sum of This offer is good until 12 noon, CDT, Tuesday, Oct. 30, 1974. Conditions of this offer are subject to the approval and support of Bill Burton in transferring the franchise in the Western Canada Hockey League from Swift Current to the Lethbridge Longhorn Hockey Club. Christie and his people have not heard anything as yet. They are hopeful if they cannot buy the Broncos outright, then possibly Burton and the locals can join forces. In Swift Current this morning, Burton did acknowledge the fact that he had received a very reasonable offer from the Lethbridge Longhorns. However, it is still too early to make any kind of decision on future partnerships or working agreements says Burton. "Things are progressing very he said. "At least as well as can be expected at this time." Burton is optimistic that he will have the Broncos on display at the new Lethbridge Sportsplex this fall.

WHAT'S IS X DON'T KNOW THOUGH ItEALLVAM- Aeros take lead By THE CANADIAN PRESS The Howe family sent Min- nesota Fighting Saints reeling again Monday night as Houston Aeros triumphed 9-4 to take a 3-2 lead in the World Hockey Association semi-final playoff series. It was the second consecutive win for the Aeros, who took the West Division title in regular season play. Houston won 4-1 Sunday night to tie the series 2-2. Gordie Howe and son Mark scored shorthanded goals in less than one minute in the first period to get the Aeros flying. Mark added a second goal later in the game. Larry Lund had a goal and two assists for the winners. The sixth game in the best- of-seven series will be played Wednesday night in St. Minn., with a seventh, if necessary, Thursday in Houston. The survivor of the Houston- Minnesota round meets the winner of the Toronto Toros- Chicago Cougars best-of- seven semi-final playoff. The Cougars lead 2-1 with the fourth game in Chicago tonight. HARRIS OPTIMISTIC The Toros face an uphill fight but that's a familiar (Situation, says coach Billy Harris. "We're down, but don't forget we survived under pressure in the race for a playoff berth. We won our last six games and every one was a must game." Hampering the Toros tonight will be the absence of injured defencemen Steve Cuddie and Rick Cunningham.
