Derek gets .6 million PHILADELPHIA (A P) Drawling Dorek Sanderson, who once fou ght hi s way i nto crowd of Philadelphia hockey 'ans, signed a con- .ract today with Philadelphia Blazers of tho new World Hockey Association. After a news conference, Sanderson went to the city's JFK Plaza for a handshaking jaunt with the noontime crowd. PhiladelplUa has never been a big money town for athletes, hul Sanderson's lawyer, Bob Woolf. has said Ihe Blazers1 seven-fig- ure deal will make htm the highest paid .sports figure in America. There was no way to turn (his contract says Sanderson, who jumped to the WHA club after five years will Boston Bruins of tho National Hockey League, "The contract Is as big as z book. It's for five years, but Blazers can expect to keep me 15 years if they win nil the lega he continued. 4'0ncc settle In Philadelphia, I expcc to play out my career there. Sanderson, always popular with tho Boston hockey fanatics hut never loved on the road got himself into a braw with sonic Philadelphia r'i-er. fans. That was back In TJcccm her of 1970, when he became an gcred by Ihe heckling of a Spec tnim crowd. TC Scoreboard, the statistics avo the m an edgo in total ards gained. Winnipeg racked p 338 yards to Calgary's 97. Jonas completed 17 of 35 for 217 yards. Hi.s work icrscs on the ground were Ed Vlhiams, who gained SO yards, nd Herron, who added 36. Both carried 12 times. McKinnis supplied the Stanv xxlers with almost half their otal yards, carrying 19 times or 148 yards. The Stampeders managed only 100 yards in the air. The hard-charging Calgary defence forced three Winnipeg umbles. Tlio defence held tho Jombers to a stingy 121 yards rushing. Meanwhile Ottawa Rough liders opened Uielr Canadian lbsll LeaguR season on a delightful note for 21.652 fans Vednesday night, beating Sask- atchewan Roughridcrs 22-7. But, even allowing for B drenching curtain of rain that ning over Lnnstfowne Park, the game lacked much of the sparkle usually associated with meetings between the two teams. While Ottawa scored In all four quarters, their game gen- erally turned on Saskatchewan miscues while the western Rid- ers were threatening only twice in the game scoring once and being held on three dowrs in- side the Ottawa five-yard line late in the fourth quarter. Saskatchewan coach Dave Skrcin laid the blame to lough early schedule that had his team open the season with two games in 43 lost 20-17 to the Tiger-Cats in Hamilton Monday. Had his players been rested, he after, "it might have completely differen been a story."

Some 40 or 50 NHL players iad signed with WHA clubs and he NHL contended lhat Its re crvc clause still bound them to hci r former employe rs. The eaguc had been advised b; counsel that its legal position would be jeopardized if players rom both organizations wen allowed to play for Team Can ada. "In these circumstances fo: us to modify the agreement is said Campbell vho is not a member of Jockey Canada board but rep resents owner Bill Wirtz of the Slack Hawks on Its five-mem ber steering committee. Fisher said the board volet nine to two, with two absten .ions, to accept the stccrin. committee's recommendatioi ipholding the original agree ment. SOME HELUCTAXT Several members of th ard, composed of govern- ment f hockey and business rep resentatives, said they wen along with the decision rehic tantly. Joe Kryczka, president of th Canadian Amateur Hockey A. sociation, said the CAHA feel the team should be open to Ca nadian citizens regardless league affiliation but is "pn pared to live with the decision. Ixm Lefaive, government rep resentaUve on the steering com m ittee, said t he governmen wluch originally urged that th agreement be re-examined sal "when we saw it was not poss ble to make any amendments the government had no cnoic but to back Hockey Canada.' ''We would like to have see a different arrangement, but w haven't got a different arrange ment." Rev. David Bauer of Vanco1 ver and Toronto lawyer Job were the members voting again the agreement. Quebec b us ncssman Rolan Lacroix Maurice Hegimbal of the Cana d ian Intcrcollegi ato Athlet Union abstained.
